We truly desire and hope that you are focused on spiritual matters and getting your life right with your Heavenly Father, as you prepare yourself for the road ahead. You need an understanding of YHWH’s Word and the power of the Holy [Sanctified, Set Apart] Spirit to stand firm, to endure spiritually. You need accurate knowledge so that you are removed from the Book of Life in the times ahead. Your consolation is that the road ahead is mapped by the Word of your Heavenly Father. YHWH, the Elohim of Hosts will supply your needs. You don’t have to be in the dark when you have accurate knowledge and are willing to focus on the example of the Messiah instead of the ways of the world for your significance. (Daniel 11:32; Colossians 3:10; Ephesians 4:24; Revelation 20:15; 2 Peter 3:9; John 3:3; “Holy Spirit 101“; “Listening to the Holy Spirit“; “Are You Rejecting YHWH’s Holy Spirit?“; “The Journey of Life through Scripture“; “Knowing Where You Stand on YHWH’s Threshing Floor“)
All Christians come to know the Father through His Word and the Holy Spirit. One of the most vital teachings of the Bible is that YHWH can be known. (Jeremiah 9:24) The highest knowledge which man and woman can attain is a personal knowledge of YHWH through scripture, prayer and the power of the Holy Spirit. People don’t naturally possess this knowledge. (Romans 3:10-11) Even though many acknowledge that ‘God’ exists, knowing that He exists isn’t the same as knowing Him personally or living in right relationship through Messiah and the Holy Spirit. (Romans 1:19-20; Psalm 14:1) For example, knowing about the President of the United States doesn’t mean you know him personally. Accurate knowledge is crucial so that you are not deceived. (Hosea 4:6) Your love for YHWH produces obedience and eternal life. (John 17:3; “Redeemed Through Obedience & Faith“; “YHWH’s People Walk by Faith and Obedience to His Word“; “Spiritual Fruit & Renewing Your Mind“; “Break Down Walls of Darkness with Prayer“)
Christians need to rejoice in the fact that YHWH has provided this knowledge for everyone if they will receive it. Even when you don’t or can’t understand everything about the future or have gaps in your knowledge, your continued trust in Elohim [YHWH] and the sacrifice of Messiah seals the deal for your salvation. (Psalm 139:6, 145:3 147:5; Romans 11:33) He has spoken to us in His Word, disclosing the ONLY means through which disciples of Messiah come to know Him. (Ephesians 1:13; Romans 10:17) Spiritual growth is vital. (Philippians 3:10; 2 Peter 3:18) While YHWH can surely be known, there is always more to learn. This is accomplished through Bible study of the Word itself, not simply through religious magazines, as you make Bible truth your own. You can be a new man in the Messiah, one of the greatest delights in the life of a disciple. (Romans 1:16) Your Bible understanding is the root of your salvation. As YHWH’s Word lives within you, you come to know your Heavenly Father and His sacrificial love for you. (“Discernment the World Doesn’t Have“; “Discernment: Having an Ear to Deeper Understanding“; “Foundation of Salvation“; “Roots of Salvation“)
The Gospel is the agent for your spiritual birth and continued life in Messiah. (James 1:18) It is like a planted seed that takes root in your heart as YHWH becomes your stronghold. His living water of truth isn’t like water poured over a duck’s back. You must live it and receive it for YHWH’s living water to fill your life. You must be willing to share Bible truth with others to the best of your ability. (Matthew 28:18-20) YHWH’s Word is a cleansing agent that continues to purify as you walk in salvation. (Ephesians 5:26; 2 Timothy 3:15; Psalm 40:8; “What Is Washing By The Word?“; “Prayer & Life in Messiah“) Through spiritual growth and filling your heart with YHWH’s truth, you will be able to be victorious in the spiritual battle against you. That battle rages today as the false prophet and the rule of nations seek to rule every aspect of your life. The beast system works through great subterfuge, a great apostasy rooted in a Babylonian system that rages forward to a final destruction by YHWH’s Kingdom. Today, central bank activities are grounded in the finance of war. As governments stretch their resources to prevail in war, they have come to count of a cabal of international bankers to sustain them. Evidence indicates that these moneylenders are the power behind the scenes. Along with sister organizations, they dictate the agenda of control as to where warfare is applied. Governments have become desperate borrowers instead of leaders. (“Foundation of a Global System of Greed“; “Modern Mammon: Power of the Fractional Reserve“; “News: Wall Street Greed Creates Hunger“)
Some of the recent news about the Vatican relates to Bible truth in the last days of this system. The Vatican, as a “religious organization,” postures for a grandstanding effort at procuring more authority, as well as the adoration of the masses. The Roman Catholic Church continues to make global fundamental efforts to rise in authority in the financial system they authored so long ago. An example of this desire to ‘re-evangelize’ has been focused on the ‘West’ by the pope, an admission of weakness in the religious Vatican hierarchy and a striving to regain any religious power lost in modern society. The abuse scandals continue, as more people pin the blame on Christianity and the ‘name of Christ’ instead of on an antichrist body of men. Despite their modest admonitions, they have been unable to rein in the corporate greed in their ranks, nor shrink back from the fraud that the system has created and continues to create daily. These historical events are important, linking this knowledge to Bible prophecy. Understanding the time we are in today is more important as time marches forward. We write this with the hope that you can be prepared and spiritually awake as the system continues to wrap its tentacles of control around your life. Never before has world technology made global control so easy. The literal and virtual systems continue to fill in the gaps as the powers behind them seek to track every movement that you make and to hold you accountable for everything you say or write. You are being watched, or soon will be, in the name of national security and global “common good.” All of this is foretold in Revelation 13-20. (“The Reality of the Antichrist“; “YHWH’s Revolution“; “Becoming Your Own God Through General Goodness?“; “Knowledge of Good and Evil“)
Even if you haven’t been focused on world events since the economic meltdown of 2008, you would have to have been asleep not to have noticed the continued debacle propelled by Wall Street and the international banking cartel that is operated by the dark financial aspects of the world that is firmly rooted in the worldly machinery of the Catholic Church. The fact is that behind the scenes, the Catholic Church controls a hierarchy that is in control of the basic infrastructure of the international banking system (something that John Greene really needs to write a book about since he has the details). In fact, this religious organization routinely reaps the profits of plunder along with their layers of banker buddies. We find it interesting, if not bordering on the comical, when the Catholic Church chides the greed of their own spawn, run amok in the banking system they founded, as they continue to reap the financial harvest grounded through the Templars and the plunder of the Inquisition. Pope Benedict is calling for a central bank when the tentacles of Catholicism already run it. This indicates more emphasis on banking control and more centralizing. This won’t be difficult since this is just a piece of their globalist agenda that insures their influence and control of every stage of the New World Order, what many say will be ‘God’s Kingdom’ on earth. In the meantime, they point at the United Nations, which they quietly admonish as the solution to future reform. They publicly condemn the idolatry of the system in place, while they profit directly from it. The appearance of chaos and unrest will reign until most people look for deliverance from their misery. Their goal is to have people beg for the promises of a New World Order, a scenario which they are creating and refining as you sleep. (“System of Mammon: The World Banking Hierarchy“; “Continuation of Global Empires Until The End“)
In this day, the original Vatican bank still exists as a testament to the system that sprang up from the roots of the Roman Empire. For centuries, the Swiss have been behind the banking industry, including the corporate power of multinational Swiss vereins, with everyone, including the Catholic Church reaping the rewards, not only monetarily, but through authority and power. So wrapping all of this up, what you know about the beast and false prophet is important to understanding the time that Christians are living in today.
Popular opinion today often neglects the understanding and importance of the Roman Catholic Church as the false prophet that works with the political beast. This is not new, since the apostate church is rooted through much of history since the Messiah. (Revelation 16:13, 19:20, 20:10, see Revelation 13) So here is the news today, which lines up with Bible prophecy:
Today, the Vatican called for radical reform of the world’s financial systems, including the creation of a global political authority to manage the economy.
A proposal by the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace calls for a new world economic order based on ethics and the “achievement of a universal common good.” It follows Pope Benedict XVI’s 2009 economic encyclical that denounced a profit-at-all-cost mentality as responsible for the global financial meltdown.
This could be seen as somewhat curious since the pontiff actually rules and controls the roots of the banking system. However, it does not rule the renegades entrenched within the investment banks of Wall Street, nor does it control the derivatives and other gambling instruments that they have created to insure the profit of all those that pull the strings.
The proposal acknowledges, however, that a “long road still needs to be traveled before arriving at the creation of a public authority with universal jurisdiction” and suggests the reform process begin with the United Nations as a point of reference.
One other point must be made that you must not underestimate. The pontiff has attacked “utilitarian thinking,” saying what is useful to the individual does not always favor the common good. In other words, the individual is not important. The rights of the individual will sacrificed on the altar of “common good,” whatever that means at the moment. Sanctified disciples will likely be squeezed on all sides because in the eyes of sovereign religion and politics of this new order, your salvation is irrelevant. Instead, they will proclaim that any salvation is their doing. (“The Antichrist & the War on Reality“; “Being Set Apart Makes You Aware of Sin“; “Consenting to Fables of Men“)
The reality is that a New World Order of religion has already been created. (“The Ten Kingdoms of the New Order“; “Scripture & the World Panic Button“; “A New World of Religion?“; “The Truth of the Apocalypse“) Whole bodies of proclaimed Christians are succumbing to the beast and the false prophet through ignorance, deceived because they lack the truth that the Bible contains. (Matthew 24) You don’t need to worry about a single AntiChrist now or in the future, because many antichrists have been in place since the first century and live right now. (1 John 2:18-19; 2 John 7) Someone that can be called “The AntiChrist” is just one more to add to the barrel, even if that antichrist is radically influential and persuasive. The word antichrist literally means a ‘substitute’ or replacement for the Messiah. (Revelation 13; 17; 19:17-21; Daniel 11:29-45; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12) Most of the world is against Yahshua [Jesus] the Messiah by its very nature. The pressure is on right now! What the majority of the world of religion doesn’t recognize is that an antichrist is anyone that isn’t in line with scripture and actively seeking the expressed Will of YHWH in scripture. Those that are in line seek the purity of their Master the Messiah, not a deceptive gospel. (Galatians 1:6-9; Matthew 7:21-23; Romans 3:31, 7:12-14, 22-25) Contrary to what the Catholic Church, denominations of Christianity, other religions and the leaders of the nations say, you need to be concerned with your righteous standing before YHWH, not before the world of man. You must walk the path of what you know is right or you will likely sacrifice your eternal life to the “common good” of mankind, a standard which often changes at any given moment to the powers at hand.
