Banking: The Roots of Rome

bible-vision-historyIn Daniel 2, Daniel is one of many Israelites captured by the Babylonian king, Nebuchadnezzar. As part of his outstanding witness in captivity, Daniel  is given the ability to  tell the dream of Nebuchadnezzar as well as to interpret the dream of the king.

“You, O king, were watching; and behold, a great image! This great image, whose splendor was excellent, stood before you; and its form was awesome. This image’s head was of fine gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighsof bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay.You watched while a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces. Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found. And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.” – Daniel 2:31-35, NKJV

Of special meaning to disciples of the Messiah today are the legs of iron, and then, iron mixed with clay. (For the interpretation of YHWH through Daniel, see Daniel 2:36-45) Many seekers of truth have been greatly confused about the Roman Empire, even discussing a “reemergence” of this Empire on a national basis. The self-importance of religion has skewed the correct understanding of the Bible book of Daniel. Religion and scholars alike have attempted to define the continuation of the Roman Empire through the “universal” or Catholic Church, the Byzantine Church and through national leadership through Charlemagne, etc.  As a historical analyst, I have used a complete history, putting the other Great Babylon, “the nation of Islam” in competition with its Roman counterpart.

daniel-statue-traditional-viewHistory shows that the Roman Empire has continued uninterrupted to this day through nations and churches via an international brotherhood of bankers and through the Roman Catholic Church, technically one and the same. This international corporate brotherhood routinely bleeds national economies and the human labor pool through their own banking creation that started in Rome. When you think of conduct, “think mafia,” a behavioral style that repeats itself throughout the annals of the Roman-Byzantine Empire. The Persian Empire has descended through time by national, religious and financial means as well.  Both have used national power, war and cult to subdue and rule wherever they could. Much of the time, religion is an ‘excuse’ to meet the needs of the moment, although modern thinking has elevated a pattern of corporate rule. There is little doubt that Muslim bankers will form some kind of agreement with Roman bankers to further strengthen the corporate oligarchy that is coming to rule the economies of the world, as well as through controlling the global labor pool. Corporate and political entities have used commerce as an excuse to enslave and rob whole populations for the good of an elite force of governance through deception and exploitation grounded in capitalism and feudalism. The thinking of the national and financial world today is now a global system of mammon, initially forged through central bankers and then through the devices of Wall Street and associated financial corporations, a system of weights and balances that has grown in global dominance over the centuries.

The History of the Continuation of Rome through Finance & Banking

world-empires-m3bThe decline of the Roman Empire began in the second century A.D. Once Constantine took the reigns in 306, he took nearly 20 years to restore order within the Empire. Despite the decline, the Empire held much of the wealth of the world at that time. As part an effort to restore order in the Empire, Constantine adopted Christianity as the State Religion, introducing changes by importing customs and cultures into his new religion as a unifying factor for the Roman Empire. The Council of Nicaea formulated the Nicene Creed in 325 and made Christianity the powerhouse of the new Roman Empire as the Roman Catholic Church or World Church. By 476, the political Roman Empire had fallen to repeated outside pressure, (notably through the Persians-Muslims) transferring the relics of the Roman Empire to the Roman Catholic Church and a temporary Byzantine empire. Political unrest continued as the rising powers of Persians in Europe invaded the Roman Empire and plundered Rome. This warfare has plunged these cults into multiple ‘dark ages.’  These acts of warfare between the Romans and Persians has continued into modern times. (“The Corporation That Owns Everything“; “Bible Prophecy and the Rise of the Corporation“)

With the rule of the Barbarians and the Byzantines, the Pope became the unquestionable leading religious figure of the time. Local power in Rome was absorbed by the Pope and the remaining possessions of the senatorial aristocracy and the local Byzantine administration in Rome were absorbed by the Roman Catholic Church. The popes of the Church became the de-facto political rulers of Rome and the surrounding regions. Emerging noble families managed to insert a leading role for themselves in the Church. The Popes declared the new Roman Empire through the Roman Catholic Church as the ‘rule of God’ on earth. Rome was subjected to varying degrees of anarchy and attack until the Normans sacked Rome in 1084. Rome was rebuilt by wealthy families using wealth that came from commerce and banking as the Church began to expand its political and religious power anew. (“The Empire Under the Beast“; “Mind Control of the Beast“)

crusadesBeginning around 1100, the need to transfer large sums of money to finance the Crusades stimulated the current concept of secular banking. The earliest known foreign exchange contract was created in Genoa in 1156. Power struggles by nobles and the Church continued. The Templars and Hospitallers acted as bankers in the Holy Land. Expansive, large land holdings of The Templars across Europe also emerged in the 1100-1300 time frame as the beginning of Europe-wide banking. Their practice was to take in local currency and create a demand note that would be valid at any of their castles across Europe, allowing movement of money without the usual risk of robbery while traveling. Papal bankers were the most successful of the Western world by putting other bankers out of business by force and from trading related to the Crusades. 1300 brought new power and the return of the Popes from France set the stage for a renaissance in Rome. In 1440, the modern printing press established the regular use of paper money. By 1452, the papacy was in firm control of Rome. Rome began to lose its religious character with a great number of popular feasts, horse races, parties, intrigues and licentious episodes as well as an economy rich with the presence of several Tuscan bankers. In 1499, Switzerland acquired its independence from the Holy Roman Empire to become bankers and protectors of Rome. (“The Man of Lawlessness“; “The Magi of this Age“)

swiss-guardIn 1506, Pope Julius II engaged the Swiss Guard that continues to serve the Vatican to the present day. The Sack of Rome in May 1527 marked the end of the initial era of religious-based banking prosperity. Rome had been ransacked and pillaged to point of oblivion by 1540 and Loyola was installed as the point man to stop the demise of Roman Catholic Society. The Bank of Rome was reorganized as a secular organization by Ignacio López de Loyola and the Society of Jesus was founded with commission of reestablishing the stronghold of Rome in the world. Loyola arranged for the Vatican and its holdings to be defended by Swiss mercenaries, commissioned to guard the assets of Rome. Rome decided to store the gold and silver in Switzerland to avoid a repeat of the ransacking of Rome. With this move, the banking system was officially expanded to the Swiss and from there, an international fraternal society of bankers expanded to other locations in the form of “central banking” known today. One of the chief sources of banking power was created in London as the “Bank of England.” This history shows the continuing structure and power of the Roman Empire and influence of the Roman Catholic Church in your life today. (“Delusion & the Tightening Noose of the Beast System“)

Swiss-bankingThe Swiss continue to prosper doing what they have done for years in banking, finance, insurance and protecting the secrets of the wealthy. The Society of Jesus, often referred to as “the Jesuit order”, continues to run the day to day operations of the Vatican, the worldwide central banking system and influence multinational financial investment and holding corporations through the Swiss. By this means, the system of central banking is able to sustain and profit through a modern power structure and a global information architecture. (“Consenting to Fables of Men“; “Learning to Live Outside of Blind Justice“)

information ageThe publicly stated goals of the Jesuits are concentrated on three activities. They founded universities throughout Europe and the world, which became essential for developing and sustaining the current financial system. Jesuit teachers are rigorously trained in both classical studies and theology. The Jesuits are to convert non-Christians to Catholicism. Their third goal is to stop Protestantism from spreading and bring the strays back into the religious fold. The leaders of this Society have vowed to bring to pass whatever the papacy demands and have met with great success. The origins of the Roman Empire, Roman Catholic Church and the Jesuit Order are undeniable in the developing history of  the current global monetary system through an international corporate body of bankers rooted in Rome. They have been instrumental in bringing mankind to its day of affliction.

The inclusion of the Vatican Bank is to confirm its “firm intention to operate according to principles and criteria which are internationally recognized.” This is an admission of the power of Vatican Bank behind other central banks, the mother of modern banking.

“For YHWH so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, RNKJV
Heavenly Father,
Thank you for sending the Messiah, your only begotten Son to be my Savior. I believe in Him and have made this belief the center of my life. Because of this, by faith I have everlasting life! Thank you! I repent of my sins and of my past, freely admitting that I have fallen short of Your glory. I look fully forward to you in my life and commit my life to You. Thank You YHWH, my Heavenly Father for setting me free in the name of your Son Yahshua [Jesus]. Amen.
genuine-articleYou will never enjoy true freedom through the Messiah and power of the Holy Spirit unless you read and absorb the Bible in prayer and trust. You will never know this freedom until you experience it for yourself. Get to know your Heavenly Father, His Son and allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher, your Holy Counselor that lives in you to help you learn about the truth of YHWH and His spiritual gifts.
Satan does not want you to have the excellence of YHWH in your life. People pray for protection and want to be taken care of, but often do little in growing close to Him. The world, your husband, your wife, your family, your government do not build your trust in YHWH or free you from spiritual bondage. Your church or your pastor cannot save you. Education, power and money will not free you, but only the Word of your Heavenly Father. Salvation is a daily walk, an act of love for yourself and for those around you, not a one-time event that centers only on you. Make the Word of YHWH your own, your very life!
YHWH is Yahweh, the covenant name of your Heavenly Father.
The names Yahshua and Yahushua are original language names for Jesus,
He is often referred simply as the Messiah or Master.
