The Papacy is the man of sin – it killed 100 Million Saints
The papacy Is antichrist because antichrist preach a jesus not come in the flesh
For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist
Jesus had to be born from a descendant of Eve ; Eve who was a sinner.
15And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head, And you shall bruise him on the heel.”
The papacy are antichrist For the false jesus they preach they say was born of a woman without sin; and so not a woman descended from Eve; Eve who was a sinner.
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
False teachings are lies; fantasies; falsehoods.
The Mary of the papacy does NOT exist, and so her offspring they preach is also a fantasy; a false christ not come in the flesh. And so The papacy are ANTICHRIST.
Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned–
For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted
Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.
Jesus the Great High Priest
14Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. 15For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. 16Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
Yet to you whom know the Lord Jesus The Son Of God come in the flesh; The word made flesh of the Gospels,
The true Holy Father God says to you:
‘come out of her my people’
And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space
We know that John was not talkng about seven kingdoms, but rather seven kings of Rome, because John knew Daniel’s prophecy of the four beasts and that the last beast was Rome. And That last beast; the fourth, would continue in a form , continue to the second coming of Jesus from heaven.
Who is the king of England?
Who is the Queen of England?
Who is the prime Minister of France?
Who is the President Of the United States?
You could answer
‘Which Prime Minister or king or Queen do you mean, as there have been many?
You get the idea?
They are NOT one man or one woman yet they rule as men by title.
Who is the man of sin; the beast king; the antichrist?
Let us find out now by looking at the Prophecies and seeing history.
There are seven kings
five have fallen :
ALL FIVE HAD BLASPHEMOUS TITLES OF PONTIFF MAXIMUS
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns
9And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. 10And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is,
John of Patmos (also called John the Revelator, John the Divine or John the Theologian) is the name given to the author of the Book of Revelation, the apocalyptic text forming the final chapter of the New Testament. The text of Revelation states that the author is called John and that he lives on the Greek island of Patmos.
Joh was in exile as a result of anti-Christian persecution under the Roman emperor Domitian.

well and truly the Roman Emperors line had been taken up by adopted strangers.
And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition
The pope; The Eighth King one of the seven goes to perdition
The Pontifex Maximus (Latin, literally: “greatest pontiff” beginning with Augustus (Caesar) it was subsumed into the Imperial office.
A pontiff (from Latin pontifex) was, in Roman antiquity, a member of the most illustrious of the colleges of priests of the Roman religion, the College of Pontiffs.
The term “pontiff” was later applied to any high or chief priest and, in Roman Catholic ecclesiastical usage, to a bishop and more particularly to the Bishop of Rome, the Pope or “Roman Pontiff”
The 8th king ;is the only king named as The Beast King;
blasphemously calling itself:
The Supreme High Pontiff Of The Universal Church
– Supreme Pontiff Of The Universal Church;
SUPREME PONTIFF OF THE UNIVERSAL CHURCH
The title of blasphemy of The beast king
Speaking in great words against the Most High taking the title From Jesus Christ The Son Of God; head of The Church and Great High Priest.
And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
And having an high priest over the house of God
Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
The beast that was: 100 Million saints murdered during the 1260 years of Papal supremacy
The beast that is Not;
Napoleon destroys the papacy
1260 YEARS FROM JUSTINIAN TO REVOLUTION. —
The Deadly Wound to one of the heads of the beast
Ends the 1260 Years
BERTHIER’S TROOPS ENTER ROME BY INVITATION. — The killing of General Duphot brought on the crisis. The ambassador left Rome in indignation. Reparations were refused, and the Directory, on January 1, 1798, ordered General Berthier, then in Milan, to march upon Rome and conquer it, and to establish a Roman republic.
5. ROMAN REPUBLIC IS RE-ESTABLISHED. — Berthier called upon the commander of St. Angelo to open the fort. He asked two days for decision, but Berthier gave only four hours. So the fort was evacuated, three thousand French troops taking possession, and taking over the city, with certain cardinals, princes, and prelates as hostages to ensure quiet. From that moment onward Pius VI confined himself to the Vatican. Heavy reparations were exacted for the assassination of General Duphot. Then a petition, drawn up and signed by the French partisans in Rome, demanding a change of government and regime of liberty, was followed by an imposing public demonstration. The Tree of Liberty was planted on the capitol hill, and the new government was established on Pluviose 27 (February 15), when the sovereignty of the people was proclaimed and the re-establishment of the Roman Republic was effected.
6. PAPAL ARMS AND INSIGNIA REMOVED. — Berthier came to the capitol escorted by a military band, received the acclaim of the great concourse, and gave formal recognition to the Roman Republic and its provisional government. He then ordered the papal arms and insignia everywhere removed. Thus the change was effected without bloodshed. Later when the Sacred Congregation of Propaganda was suppressed, their College at
Rome was closed and the building used as a warehouse for confiscated property, and their printing presses and type were sent to France. Vatican Palace was stripped of its valuables, and the sacerdotal vestments of the pontifical chapels were burned for the gold and silver of the embroidery.
7. PIUS VI DETHRONED ON ANNIVERSARY IN SISTINE CHAPEL. — Meantime, on this very same day — February 15 — on the anniversary of his elevation to the pontificate, Pius VI repaired to the Sistine Chapel, and was receiving the felicitations of the Sacred College of cardinals, when, in the midst of the ceremony, shouts penetrated the conclave, intermingled with the strokes of axes on the doors. Soon General Haller, a Swiss Calvinist, with a band of his soldiers, broke into the chapel, and declared that the pope’s reign was at an end. (Painting appears on page 754.) His Swiss guards were dismissed, and republican soldiers substituted. Ferrara, Bologna, and Romagna (Peter’s patrimony) were taken over, and the cardinals were stripped of authority and possessions. Eight were arrested and sent to the Civita Castellana. The glory, honor, and power had vanished. Soldiers were quartered in the papal palace. Such was the stroke of the sword at Rome. It was the end of an epoch in papal history long before predicted in the prophecies of Holy Writ. Trevor goes so far as to say:
“The territorial possessions of the clergy and monks were declared national property, and their former owners cast into prison. The papacy was extinct: not a vestige of its existence remained; and among all the Roman Catholic powers not a finger was stirred in its defence. The Eternal City had no longer prince or pontiff; its bishop was a dying captive in foreign lands; and the decree was already announced that no successor would be allowed in his place.”
8. TREASURES DEMANDED AND BANISHMENT DECREED.—The pope’s banishment from Rome was then decreed, and Haller was again chosen to inform him. Appearing on the afternoon of February 18, he demanded the pope’s treasures. When the pope protested that the Tolentino Treaty had left him nothing, Haller demanded and took the two rings on his fingers, including the Fisherman’s ring — though only by threat. (This was returned the following day.) Haller told the prelate to be ready to leave the next morning at six. He protested his age—of eighty-one—and illness, Haller nevertheless insisted, and threatened force. Given forty-eight hours to settle the affairs of the church, he was to leave before daybreak. (Painting of departure appears on page 754.)
It was still night, February 20, 1798, and stormy with lightning and thunder, when the carriage crossed the city, preceded by two men with torches — the guards pointing out the dome of St. Peter’s. Both hisses and prayers came from the crowd that had assembled. Within ten days Pius VI had been dethroned. imprisoned, exiled, his private library confiscated, his state given up to plunder, and his subjects to military control. Reaching Sienna, Pius and his party stopped at an Augustinian convent. But while they were there, an earthquake destroyed several buildings. The Pontiff was therefore housed outside the city in a country home called Hell, a fact that elicited the sarcasm of the unbelieving.
9. DIES AT VALENCE, FRANCE, IN 1799. — But the pope was still in the heart of Italy. So Pius VI was transferred to Florence, constantly under guard of French dragoons. Next his transfer to Parma was decided upon, the departure to take place at 2 A.M. As the pope was suffering from partial paralysis, his guards had great difficulty in effecting the transfer. From here he was taken to Turin, and finally to the French fortress at Valence, in Dauphiny, arriving there July 14, 1799, broken with fatigue and sorrow. He died there on the 28th.
II. Official Handbills Reveal Facts of Overthrow
About fifty official handbills and circulars, many in paralleling French and Italian columns, were printed and posted in Rome during the papal overthrow and the establishment of the republic under Berthier in 1798. These constitute about the highest source evidence obtainable, and are not commonly accessible. They are therefore summarized here, the more important being quoted from. Nos.1 and 2 assure respect for public worship and its ministers and for ambassadors, and warn French officers of violation. No. 5, dated Year 1, Pluviose 27 (Feb. 15, 1798), announces that Berthier has appointed civil authorities in the six territories of the republic. No. 7 gives a pompous speech of Berthier in which he says that at the capitol, bearing an olive branch, free Frenchmen have re-established the altars of liberty, erected by the first Brutus.
1. PAPAL GOVERNMENT SUPPRESSED, REVERTING TO PEOPLE. — The famous Bill No. 8, in parallel French and Italian, dated Pluviose 27 (February 15), is a formal declaration by “Citizen Alexander Berthier, General in Chief.” In this he makes the announcement:
“The Roman people are now again entered into the rights of sovereignty, declaring their independence, possessing the government of ancient Rome, constituting a Roman Republic.
“The General-in-chief of the French army in Italy declares, in the name of the French Republic, that he acknowledges the Roman Republic independent, and that the same is under the special protection of the French army.
“The General-in-chief of the army acknowledges, in the name of the French Republic, the provisional government which has been proposed by the sovereign people.
“In consequence, every other temporal authority emanating from the old government of the Pope, is suppressed, and it shall no more exercise any function….
“The Roman Republic, acknowledged by the French Republic, comprehends all the country that remained under the temporal authority of the Pope, after the treaty of Campo-Formio.

2. ROMAN POPULACE CASTS OFF PAPAL YOKE. — Bill No. 9, likewise of the same date (February 15), titled “Acte du Pepule [peuple] Souverain” (An Act of the Sovereign People) — certified and signed by three notaries, and confirmed by General Berthier — makes this clear-cut declaration:
“The people of Rome, long tired of the monstrous despotism under which they groaned have on various occasions tried to shake off this yoke. The magic of public opinion and political interests combined into a mighty force have not allowed their efforts to succeed. And a despotism of that nature becomes the more insulting the more its weakness and arrogance corresponds to its misery. But at last, the people, fearing to be exposed to an hideous anarchy and in despair to fall under even a worse tyranny have mustered all their courage in order to evade these sinister consequences and to reclaim the primitive rights of their sovereignty.
“Assembled in the presence of the Eternal and the whole universe, they solemnly and unanimously declare to have had no part whatever in the crimes and assassinations committed by the government against the French Republic and her nation. They disapprove of these crimes and detest their originators and invoke upon them (vow them) eternal shame.
“They further have suppressed, abolished and crushed the political, economic, and civil authorities of the former Roman government and have constituted themselves a free and independent sovereignty in taking up all executive and legislative powers which its legitimate representatives shall exercise according to the immortal rights of man based on the principles of truth, justice, liberty, and equality.
“They have declared that their desire is that no attack against religion or the spiritual authority of the pope should be made and that they reserve to themselves the right by their representatives to provide for the comfortable sustenance [of the Pope] and to ensure the safety of his person by a national guard.
“These representatives shall present themselves in the name of the Roman people. The government has also asked the following citizens [names follow] to approach the citizen Alexander Berthier, general-in-chief of the French army in Italy, imploring the powerful protection and the friendship of the generous French nation, whose gallant examples serve them as a lesson in the task of their own regeneration.
32 Proclamation of the Establishment of the Roman Republic in the name of the French “Army of Italy” (See facsimile on p. 754), in the collection of Official Bills and circulars Printed and Posted in Rome … 1798; in Bibliothèque nationale, Paris; Duppa, op. cit., pp. 37-39; see also The European Magazine, vol. 33, March, 1798, p. 208.
“The present act has been signed by several thousand persons who, with many others, have read, approved and confirmed it by their acclamations on the Capitol. On the 27. Pluviose in the 6. year of the Republic.”
3. COLOSSUS OF IMPOSTURE DESTROYED. — Bill No.17, dated February 21 (Ventose 3) — the day following the pope’s departure from Rome — is a violent charge against the old government, and is signed by five consuls, the secretary general of the consulate, General Berthier, and the minister of war. It reads:
“The provisional consuls of the Roman Republic to the soldiers of the former government: ‘Soldiers: The despotism which was afflicting humanity and which was weighing so heavily upon the descendants of the illustrious Romans; this colossus of imposture and immorality which was governing this beautiful land has just been destroyed by a sublime movement of the Roman people. Soldiers, you will wish to have a part in this grand event.”
4. UNION OF SACRED AND PROFANE DISSOLVED. — Bill No. 28 gives an extract from a speech by Citizen Gagliuffi on February 23. He says:
“Already has proud and penurious hypocrisy fallen to the ground. Already is this grotesque union of the sacred and the profane being dissolved. At last, are the sweet maxims of gospel morality allowing us to seek and propagate righteousness and truth. The ministers of the sanctuary may henceforth-according to the duties of their sublime institution—bring peace and consolation into homes and hearts. The representatives of the Republic will ever keep the trust which the people of Rome have committed to us with such piety and universal joy. — Thanks be therefore rendered unto thee, O supreme and immortal Being, on whom the destiny of all creatures depends. Touched, at last, by the woes which pressed upon us so heavily: Monopoly, Favoritism, Privilege, and alas perhaps Religion itself, a Religion honored by the lips only and denied by the hearts, — do graciously sanctify our Liberty, bless out Equality, and preserve our Republic!”
5. RELIGIOUS INTERESTS SEPARATE FROM POLITICS. — Bill; No. 34, addressed to the Roman people and clergy, signed by the president of the republic and five consuls, and dated February 26, stating that the government is “based on the gospel,” and declaring, “God has established a gospel of peace and pardon,” commends good priests and warns the evil, and admonishes:
“In the pulpit, at the altar, at the confessional, give the people of both sexes to understand that religious interests are separate from poli-
ties. O thou, benignant and generous people of Rome, be no longer led astray by infernal wolves disguised as heavenly lambs. Shun and denounce the fanatic who betrays both religion and the Republic, and who, therefore, is the implacable enemy of thy present and future felicity. Hail with open arms the righteous man, the brother or magistrate who would thee enlighten, protect and save.”
6. FRANCE FORMALLY NOTIFIED OF CHANGE. — A fourteen page tract, bound in with the bills, published in French and Italian, includes a letter from the minister of foreign affairs in Rome to Talleyrand, minister of foreign affairs in Paris, dated February 28 (Ventose 10), giving notice that the Roman people have chosen a new government comprising all the territory formerly under the temporal power of the pope after the treaty of Campo-Formio. It is signed “Corona.” Talleyrand’s answer follows, expressing the great satisfaction of the French Directory, and is dated Ventose 25.
And the beast that was, and is not,
even he is the eighth,
and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
Now leave that man of sin!
One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was filled with wonder and followed the beast

In Bible prophecy, a day represents a year. Numbers 14:34 says, “After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years.” See also Ezekiel 4:6.
According to the day-year principle, 1260 prophetic days becomes 1260 years. The word used here for “time” means a prophetic year consisting of 360 days. Therefore, “time and times and half a time” refers to three and a half prophetic years, consisting of 1260 prophetic days. This is highlighted in the parallelism of the prophecy in Revelation where the three and a half year period is equated with 1260 prophetic days, or 1260 literal years.
The Papacy would persecute the saints (God’s people) for 1260 years. The legally recognized supremacy of the Pope began in 538 AD, when Emperor Justinian elevated the Bishop of Rome to the position of Head of all Churches. This is known as the Edict of Justinian.
Adding 1260 years to 538 AD brings us to 1798, which is the year the Pope was deposed when the French General Berthier, under Napoleon, led him into captivity. Napoleon apparently tried to crush the Papacy, and about 18 months later the Pope died in exile in Valence, France. This act ended papal power in terms of enforcing papal decrees.
The Bible clearly identifies the papal system as the Antichrist. The Papacy has placed itself in the place of Jesus Christ on Earth, and claims to be able to mediate between people and God. The great reformers were all united in their recognition of papal Rome as the Antichrist power.
But the Bible predicts that this same power will continue to reign until the end and will again enforce its decree contrary to God’s law.
The true church of Christ persecuted
And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days ( 1260 days )
It was given power to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation.
And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming
And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
The Papacy approves of the denial of The LORD Jesus Christ
The Son Of God and creator of all things.
The Koran teaches that Allah has no son
and the koran denies Jesus Is the Son Of God The messiah
And the koran denies Jesus Christ died on the cross.
The papacy approves of the muslim religion; and says those who deny jesus is the son of God can be saved..
The papacy thus approves of antichrist, which is the denial that jesus christ is the son of God.
I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it, and because no lie is of the truth. 22Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son. 23Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father; the one who confesses the Son has the Father also.…
The Catechism of the whore Church Approving of the denial of Jesus Christ The Son Of God
841 The Church’s relationship with the Muslims. “The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims
Islam is antichrist and as such it does NOT acknowledge The creator
contrary to the whore’s mistaken belief, islam does NOT acknowledge the creator, even if you think allah means God, which it doesn’t anyway. For by Jesus Christ all things were created, created by and for jesus christ as the bible states plainly, and as we know islam denies Jesus is the Christ the son of God we therefore know Islam does not acknowledge the creator but instead it denies him.
The Supremacy of Christ ( the creator)
15Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. 18And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. 19For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; 20And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2The same was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
The Roman Catholic papacy and it’s church comprehends not also, for it is OF darkness also.

Timeline of the Papacy
50-100 – Prediction of Roman Church by the Apostles
The apostle Paul prophesies of the coming kingdom of Antichrist. The seeds of this kindgom had already been planted, and antichrists had infiltrated the Church even at the time of the apostle. These seeds would eventually germinate and result in the monstrosity of the Papacy, the man of sin, the mystery of iniquity, the Antichrist to come. See especially Rev. 17 where the apostle John is shown a vision of the apostate church.
313 – The End of Persecution and the Institutializing of the Church
The persecution of Christians under the Roman Empire officially ends by decree of religious tolerance by Constantine. Paganism and Christianity are allowed to coexist and commingle.
330 – The Removal of the Emperor from Rome
Paul’s prophecy (2 Thess. 2:7) comes to fruition, as the Emperor Constantine removes the seat of the empire to Constantinople. The vacuum created by the removal of secular authority from Rome allows the temporal authority of the Bishop of Rome to rise up above the other three major bishoprics (Antioch, Alexandria, Jerusalem).
410 to early 500’s – Conversion of the Barbarians
Rome is under continual threat from barbarian attacks. Gradually, the “Christian” faith was accepted by the barbarians. The faith had become one bereft of its gospel power, having become filled with rituals and superstitions that were consistent with the pagan beliefs of the barbarians.
538 – The Decree of Justinian Enhances the Roman Bishopric
The primacy of the Bishop of Rome is formally declared in the decree of Emperor Justinian I. The decree greatly enhances the power of the bishop of Rome. The papacy has now sprouted into the immature kingdom of Antichrist. The melding of temporal and alleged spiritual authority has occurred.
610 – Emperor Declares Bishop of Rome to be the “Universal Bishop”
The power of the Bishop of Rome is further strengthened when Boniface III obtains a decree from Emperor Phocas that the See of Peter in Rome should be proclaimed the Universal Bishop, the Pontiff Maximus. This ended the attempts by the Bishop of Constantinople to claim universal headship of the church. The dual claims of Petrine headship and universal dominion continue to this day.
~754 – Publication of the Donation of Constantine
The “Donation of Constantine” is forged. This document purports that Constantine ceded all imperial power and authority (including title to the city of Rome and the “papal states” of Italy) to Pope Sylvester and his successors. The forgery is referred to for the next 600 years to strengthen the temporal claims of the Papacy.
755 – French Army Secures the Papacy
Threatened by Muslims from the east and Lombards at home, Pope Stephen II asks France for help in securing the safety of Rome. Pepin the Short (father of Charlemagne), who had recently usurped the throne of France, crosses the Alps to defeat the Lombards. Seeking papal approval to secure his kingdom, Pepin cedes the conquered towns to the pope. Papal power is thus advanced.
800 – Charlemagne Crowned by the Pope
Pepin’s son, Charlemagne, again defeats the Lombard uprising, and on Christmas Eve kneels before the pope to receive the crown as Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire. Charlemagne enlarges the landholdings of the papacy. The tables have been turned: Justinian had crowned the Bishop of Rome as “Pontifex Maximus” in 538; now the pope was crowning Charlemagne as Holy Roman Emperor. The temporal power of the alleged spiritual head of the Church is completed. He reigns over the kings of the earth (Rev.17:18)
800 to 1000 – Increasing Power Leads to Gross Immorality
Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. The great power of the papacy leads to gross simony, immorality and power struggles within the papacy.
~850 – Forgeries Created to Support Apostolic Succession to Rome
Documents known as the “False Decretals” are written and attributed to early Popes and the “Church Fathers.” These writings are used to prove the supremacy of the Roman Bishop over the claims of Constantinople.
872-999 – Infighting Leads to Murder and Intrigue
Power struggles surrounding the papacy lead to many short-lived popes. Stephen VI (896-897), Leo V (903), Benedict VI (973-974), – strangled. Stephen VII/Romanus (897) – mutilated. John XII – murdered by a jealous husband. John XIV (983-984) – starved to death. John VII (872-882), Adrian III (884-885), Gregory V (996-999) – poisoned. John X (914-928) – allegedly suffocated with a pillow.
928 – The Papacy Captured and Ruled by a Woman
The beautiful and wealthy Marozia seizes Roman power with her husband Guy in a coup d’etat. Pope John X (her former lover) is imprisoned and dies or is murdered. Marozia places the next two popes as her puppets on the chair of Peter. When her son turns 21, she enthrones him as Pope John XI.
1054 – East-West Schism
After centuries of tension, the power struggle between the Bishops of Constantinople and Rome leads to the Great Schism, separating Eastern Orthodoxy from Roman Catholicism.
1073 – Hildebrand Consolidates Power
Pope Gregory VII (a/k/a Hildebrand) consolidates power, terminates the secular election of popes, and declares that the pope is the reign of God on earth. Over the next two centuries, this reign would including the power to depose kings, interdict entire nations, confiscate property, and slaughter “heretics.”
1208 to 1213 – The Use of Spiritual Force to Coerce Kingdoms
Pope Innocent III places England under interdict, preventing the people from receiving the sacraments of the church (except for baptism and confession at time of death) in order to force the submission of King John.
1209-1255 – Crusade Against the Albigensian Christians
Pope Innocent III turns the crusaders inward to annihilate the Albigensians of southern France. Indulgences were offered by the pope, as were the temporal goods of those slaughterred. These simple Christians, who had worshiped apart from the tyranny of Rome for centuries, were brutally murdered for their faith. The crusade began with the slaughter of the entire town of Beziers.
1252 – The 600 Year Reign of Terror Begins
Pope Innocent IV authorizes the Holy Office of the Inquistion. For over 600 years, this office would be responsible for the murder, torture, and confiscation of goods of alleged heretics. One estimate places the number killed by the Papacy at 50 million souls. Rev. 17:6 is fulfilled: the papacy was made drunk on the blood of the saints.
1302 – Submission to the Pope Necessary for Salvation
Pope Boniface VII issues the bull Unum Sanctum. In it, he declares that every human creature must entirely submit to the Pope in order to be saved.
1309-1377 – Roman Catholic Church become French Catholic Church
Disputes between the pope and the king of France lead to the election of a French pope, who moves the papacy to France. This period is known as the Babylonian Captivity of the Church.
1378-1415 – The Western Schism – Will the Real Pope Please Stand Up!
After the papacy is returned to Rome, several claimants to the papal chair arise. When Gregory XI dies, the Romans riot to demand that one of their own be elected pope. The cardinals elect an Italian pope, Urban VI. This pope succumbs to the power of the chair and becomes a stench to the cardinals. They elect a new pope, the Frenchman Clement VII. who returns the papacy to Avignon. These two separate lines of popes continued until 1408 when the cardinals elected a third pope to replace the other two. The problem of multiple popes was finally resolved in 1414 at the Council of Constance – all three popes were removed and replaced by a fourth pope, Martin V.
1415 – The Execution of Jan Hus Leads to the Bohemian Wars
After being promised safe passage, the popular church reformer Jan Hus is condemned by the Council of Constance and burned at the stake. This outraged his fellow Bohemians who split from the Roman Church to follow the teachings of Hus. Martin V responded in 1420 by ordering a crusade to slaughter the tiny group of Bohemians. Amazingly, the small army of the Hussites used superior tactics to soundly defeat the combined forces of the Empire. [While being burned alive, a joyful Hus prophesied “In 100 years, God will raise up a man whose calls for reform cannot be suppressed.” That man was Martin Luther].
1517 to 1521 – From Wittenburg to Worms – Attempts to Quash Luther
The Papists attempt to suppress the teachings of Martin Luther – using their historical weapons of coercion, force and persecution. Unable to overcome Luther’s arguments in debates, Luther is ordered to recant of his teachings and submit to Rome.
1521-1527 – God Protects the Reformation from Papal Annihilation
The small band of reformers is protected by the hand of God. With their very existence threatened by both the Papacy and the Empire, God uses first the invading Turks and then conflict between the Pope and Emperor Charles V to protect His people.
1527 – Rome is Sacked by Imperial Forces – Pope Pays Ransom
Fearing the increasing power of the Emperor, Pope Clement VII allies himself (League of Cognac) with the French and English kings against Charles V. The Imperial Army descends upon Rome, and Clement barely escapes with his life through a secret tunnel. Rome is sacked, and the pope is forced to pay a ransom to the Emperor.
1529 – Diet of Spires – An Attempt to Enforce Submission to Rome
At the Diet of Worms (where Luther refused to recant), the Emperor enacted the Edict of Worms – calling for the murder of Luther and his followers. But persecution only led to the spread of the gospel in Germany, even to the Princes. The Diet of Spires was an attempt by the Emperor and the Papacy to overturn religious freedom in Germany and return to the standards of the Edict of Worms – allowing official persecution of Protestants. In an incredible act of courage, the German princes refused to submit, thus following in the steps of Luther.
1540 – The Jesuits are Formed to Protect the Church: White is Black
Pope Paul III formally establishes the Society of Jesus, a group that requires absolute submission to the Pope, and that will be responsible for many political intrigues of the counter reformation. A quote from its founder, Ignatius of Loyola: “”I will believe that the white that I see is black if the hierarchical Church so defines it.”
1545-1563 – The Council of Trent Anathemizes the Protestants
After attempts to quash the Protestant movement have failed, the doctrines of Justification by Faith Alone and the Sufficiency of Scripture are formally condemned.
1572 – The St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre of the Huguenots
It seemed the more the French Protestants were persecuted, the more their evangelical faith was spreading in France. Failing to eradicate the Huguenots by persecution, they were destroyed through the means of a false peace followed by a bloody slaughter.
1798 – The Removal of the Pope by Napoleon (Papacy Wounded)
Napoleon’s Army captures Rome. Pope Pius IV is removed from the papal throne. 1,260 years after the establishment of the papacy under the decree of Justinian, the false church is dealt a serious blow – a “wound” that would not be healed until the Lateran treaty with Mussolini in 1929.
1854 – Immaculate Conception of Mary defined as Dogma
The Pope solemnly pronounces that Mary was born without original sin in the womb of her mother Anna. The Feast of the Immaculate Conception is a Holy Day of Obligation (December 8). Willful failure to attend Mass on the feast day is a mortal sin.
1870 – Pius IX Foists the Dogma of Infallibility
In a council filled with intrigue and secrecy, the office of the pope is declared to be infallible in all matters of faith and morals at Vatican I. If anyone disagrees with this declaration, they are accursed to hell.
1950 – The First Infallible Decree: The Assumption of Mary
Pius XII declares that the body and soul of Mary, at the end of her earthly life, was assumed to heaven where she reigns as Queen.
