Who is behind all the trouble in the Mideast?

There is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets (Daniel 2:28).

Ignatius LIEola

Ignatius LIEola

In the year 1523, Ignatius LIEola, the Founder and first General of the Jesuit order, started his career of deception by going to Jerusalem and trying to covert Moslems to Roman Catholicism....He was a complete failure there and even his Superior threatened him with excommunication if he did not quit the city.

Arriving back in Europe he decided to fight the Reformation instead. About that time, Martin Luther had just finished his marvelous translation of the Bible. Millions were reading the Scriptures for themselves and awaking from the long dark night of the Dark Ages.

They realized that the great apostasy that the Apostle Paul had predicted of the Man of Sin sitting in the Temple of God was fulfilled in the Papal Dynasty:

"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition . . . so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God" (II Thess 2:3). 

All over Europe the Pope was called The Antichrist. The Great Martin Luther said:

"Oh Christ, my Lord, look down upon us and bring upon us the day of judgment, and destroy the brood of Satan at Rome. There sits the Man, of whom the Apostle Paul wrote that he would oppose and exalt himself above all that is called God the Man of Sin, the son of perdition . . . What is the Temple of God? Is it stones and wood? Did not Paul say, The Temple of God is holy, which Temple ye are? To sit what is it but to reign, to teach and to judge. Who from the beginning of the church has dared to call himself master of the whole church but the Pope alone. None of the saints, none of the heretics ever uttered so horrible a word of pride" (Luther's Works, Vol. 2. p. 281.

This prophetic teaching (historicist) was playing havoc with the Roman church. Millions were escaping and obeying the Lord's command to "come out of her" (Rev. 18:4). 

LIEola commissioned one of his Jesuits named Francisco Ribera (1537-1591) to write an opposing view. He wrote a 500 page commentary on the Book of Revelation. The main premise of his commentary was that:

(1) Antichrist was one man . . . not a dynasty.  
(2) He would be an atheist or infidel.
(3) He would not be revealed until 7 years before the end of time.
(4) He would sit in a rebuilt temple in Jerusalem and make a covenant with the Jews.
(5) He would call himself God etc., etc.
(6) The Christians were hindering his appearance but they would be "caught up" ruptured to Heaven before his appearance -- the "Left Behind" madness!!

This became the official Roman Catholic position on Antichrist. This new idea (futurism) very conveniently shifted the focus from the Papacy to some fanciful individual way off in the distant future. John Nelson Darby became its main proponent in the English speaking world.

In order to make this "prophecy" come true he had to "invent Jews" and somehow get them back to Palestine.

The mighty nation of ancient Israel perished by the Roman sword in 70 A.D., in exact fulfillment of the words of Jesus The Temple was leveled to the ground and not one stone was left upon another that was not thrown down.

Inventing "Jews" was no problem for Rome. Even at the time of Christ there was a whole nation that called themselves Jews . . . but were phonies. They were the Samaritans who lived to the north of Jerusalem. Jesus even had an interview with a Samaritan woman at a well. (Gospel of John ch. 4). One of them, Simon the Sorcerer, actually went to Rome and founded the Roman Catholic church.

Zionism began in earnest after WW I with the British Conquest of Palestine. Still, most of those Samaritan Jews were not interested in going there. After all, most of them were living comfortably in Germany and they had no interest in helping Ribera fulfill his futurism. 

Hitler and WW II changed all that. In 1948, the State of Israel was declared and the survivors of the Holocaust had no where to go but to Palestine.

This set the stage for perpetual conflict....The Arabs had been living on that land for centuries and they were not about to give up their homes to help the Jesuits fulfill "Bible" prophesy. 


Much is spoken in the New Testament about the Temple of God but it ALWAYS refers to the believers in Christ. Paul said: 

"Know ye not that ye are the Temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you . . .  for the Temple of God is holy, which Temple ye are" (I Cor. 3:16-17).

Wailing Wall in Jerusalem is former site of the Roman Fortress Antonia!!

Wailing Wall in Jerusalem is former site of the Roman Fortress Antonia!!

Thousand of "Jews" pray daily before this wall believing that it is part of the Temple destroyed by the Romans. It is in fact the outer wall of the Roman fortress of Antonia. Jesus said that praying in public is a sure sign of a HYPROCRITE:

"And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the HYPROCRITES are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the CORNERS of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward" (Matt. 6:5).

Daniel the Prophet was a real Jew and one of the greatest men of God that ever lived. Here is how he prayed:

"Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his HOUSE: and his window being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime." (Daniel 6:10).

LIEola makes Jesus a liar!!

Believe it or not . . . LIEola actually called his outfit the Society of Jesus or Jesuits . . . then he went on to call Jesus a liar because He  said that the Temple would be leveled to the ground and not ONE stone would be left upon another:

"See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down" (Matt. 24:2).

Josephus, the great Jewish historian was present at the siege in 70 A.D. He said:

"It (Jerusalem with its walls) was so thoroughly laid even with the ground by those who dug up the foundations, that there was left nothing to make those that came thither believe it (Jerusalem) had ever been inhabited" (Josephus, Wars of the Jews, Vol. II,1,1)

The Romans did leave something . . . the fortress or headquarters of the 10th Legion as a monument to the power of Rome. The10th Legion occupied Jerusalem for 200 years afterward and they would not destroy their own headquarters.

Another eye-witness was Eleazar who commanded the Jewish defense of Masada. He says that the only thing left standing was the Roman fortress:

"And where is now that great city (Jerusalem), the metropolis of the Jewish nation, which was fortified by so many walls round about it. . . Where is this city that was believed to have God himself inhabiting therein? it is now demolished to the very foundations, and hath nothing left but that monument in it preserved, I mean the camp of those (the Romans) that hath destroyed it, which still dwells upon its ruins; some unfortunate old men also lie ashes upon the Temple, and a few old women are there preserved alive by the enemy, for our bitter shame and reproach" (Josephus, Wars of the Jews, Vol. II. 8.7).

He is a quote from the great church historian Eusebius:

" . . . their once famous Mount Sion, instead of being, as once it was, the centre of study and education based on the divine prophecies, which the children of the Hebrews of old, their Godly prophets, priests and national teachers loved to interpret, is a Roman farm like the rest of the country, yea, with my own eyes I have seen the bulls plowing there, and the sacred site sown with seed" (Proof of the Gospel, p.141).

Dome of the Rock  3rd holiest site in Islam  was the site of the Roman Legion's Headquarters and trial of Jesus.

Dome of the Rock 3rd holiest site in Islam was the site of the Roman Legion's Headquarters and trial of Jesus.

This Rock was the site of the trial of Jesus and was called the Praetorian or the Pavement, but in the Hebrew tongue Gabbatha.

The real Jewish Temple was about 1000 yards South of this on the Gihon Spring. This was the site of a Christian church until the 7th century and then the Moslems built the Dome of the Rock on the site.

None of the Samaritan Jews before the 16th century recognized this as being the site of the ancient Temple. 

The Discovery of the Temple by Sultan Suleiman.

Suleiman the Magnificent (1494 1566).

Suleiman the Magnificent (1494 1566).

"In the days of the king Sultan Suleiman  nobody knew the location of the Temple, so he ordered a search of Jerusalem to find it. One day, a man in charge of the search who had already given up hope, saw a woman coming and on her head was a basket full of garbage and filth.
"What is on your head?" he asked. 
"Garbage" she said. 
"Where are you taking it." "To such-and-such a place"
"Where are you from?"
"From Bethlehem"
"And between Bethlehem and this place are there no garbage dumps?"
"We have a tradition that anyone who brings garbage and dumps it here is performing a meritorious work"
"This must be it" said the man and ordered many men to clear out the garbage from that spot, garbage which, because of the great time that had passed, had turned the earth at the bottom. And so he uncovered the holy place. He went and told the king who rejoiced greatly and ordered them to clean and sweep (the place) and wash the Wall with rose-water" (The Western Wall by Meir  Ben Dov, p. 110.) 

And this is how the site of the former Temple was discovered!!

Rabbi Isaac Luria.

Rabbi Isaac Luria ((1534-1572) was a faithful follower of Ignatius LIEola. He is called the Father of the Kabbala. He had strange supernatural powers as all well trained Jesuits possess. He had a profound influence on the Jewish world. He was the first to suggest that the Dome of the Rock was the site of the former Temple. 

This idea set the stage for conflict with the Arabs. Remember LIEola had visited Jerusalem and he knew a lot about the city. He knew the Arabs would never give up their holy place to the Jews so the Temple would never be rebuilt. This would mean constant conflict and wars. Here is a brief quote from the Secret Oath of the Jesuits:

"You have been taught to insidiously plant the seeds of jealousy and hatred between communities, provinces, states that were at peace, and incite them to deeds of blood, involving them in war with each other, and to create revolutions and civil wars in countries that were independent and prosperous, cultivating the arts and the sciences and enjoying the blessings of peace. To take sides with the combatants and to act secretly with your brother Jesuit, who might be engaged on the other side, but openly opposed to that with which you might be connected, only that the Church might be the gainer in the end, in the conditions fixed in the treaties for peace and that the end justifies the means."

The Temple was built on the Gihon Spring.

The Temple was built on the Gihon Spring not a Rock as in Dome of the Rock. This was the spot where King David crowned his son Solomon King of Israel (I Kings 1:33). In many verses of the psalms of David, he refers to the fact that the House of God had a Spring within.

View of the underground spring which supplied water to the Temple.

Water . . . water . . .  everywhere.... The Temple was a slaughterhouse and hundred of animals were killed daily. Water was a vital necessity for the priests who had to wash constantly. The water was brought up and stored in huge lavers or cisterns:

"The edifice looks toward the EAST, and its back is to the west. The entire floor is paved with stones and sloped downward to the appropriate places, to admit of flushing with water in order to wash away the blood of the sacrifices; for many myriads of beasts are offered on the days of the festivals. The water supply is inexhaustible, for an abundant natural Spring pours forth within the Temple area, and there are furthermore marvelous underground reservoirs passing description. . ." (Letter of Aristeas, p.135, an eye-witness account written about 300 B.C.) 

Here is another account from the Roman historian Tacitus. He was the world's first war correspondent and he described the Battle of Mons Grampius when the Roman army squared off against the Scots and Picts.

"The Temple resembled a citadel, and had its own walls, which were more labouriously constructed than the others. Even the colonnades with which it was surrounded formed an admirable outwork. It contained an inexhaustible spring; there were subterranean excavations in the hills, and tanks and cisterns for holding rain water" (Tacitus, Complete Works, p. 664).

View of the Temple Mount before 70 A.D.

This is an eye-witness view of the Temple mount according to the great Jewish historian Josephus. The Temple was a TOWER and the foundations went down to the Kidron Valley to tap the natural Gihon Spring. It looked like a modern skyscraper about 45 stories high and the Temple was built on top of that. It was foursquare and measured 200 yards (about 182 meters) on each side.  

It was awesome, imposing and massive one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world. It was completely covered with gold. It was supposed to be a miniature representation of God's throne in Heaven!!

During a tour of the Holy Land in March 2000, Pope John Paul II visited the Wailing Wall and put a prayer request in the wall of this Roman Fort!!

This diabolical oath has been fulfilled to the letter in the Mideast and there is still no end in sight. All this murder and mayhem just to get the Christians to stop calling the Pope The Antichrist.

This is not the first time that Rome has changed the geography of Jerusalem!!

From 70 A.D., to the year 326 A.D., all the Christians met on the MOUNT OF OLIVES to commemorate the Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Here is a quote from the great church historian Eusebius:

"Believers in Jesus all congregate from all parts of the world....that they may worship at the MOUNT OF OLIVES opposite the city....TO THE CAVE that is shown there" (Eusebius, Proof of the Gospel, Bk. VI. ch. 18).

Emperor CONstantine changed the TIME and PLACE of the Lord's Resurrection!!

Satan's vicious counterattack began with his boy, Emperor Constantine:

Emperor Constantine was the first Pope!!

Emperor Constantine was the first Pope!!

Emperor Constantine (reigned from 306 — 337) was a demon possessed monster and EVERYBODY was afraid of him even his biographer Eusebius. He even had his own wife and son murdered!!

In the year 326, he presided over the Council of Nicaea which changed the time of the Lord's Resurrection from the time of the full moon to a week later.

Not content with that he also changed the PLACE of the Resurrection. He had constant dreams and visions and he said that the Lord showed him in a vision that the site of the TEMPLE of VENUS in Jerusalem was the correct site of the Resurrection. Of course nobody argued with him. After all he was the Emperor of Rome and his word was law

This man was the first Pope not St. Peter. The central doctrine of Christianity is the Resurrection of Christ. He undermined that cardinal doctrine and used the power of imperial Rome to push this new perverted Christianity. He even believed that he was an apostle the 13th to wit.

Constantine believed that water baptism washes away sin and makes one a Christian — a cardinal doctrine of Rome — so he waited until just before he died before submitting to baptism. 

Map of the Holy City as it looked at the time of Jesus.

Map of the Holy City as it looked at the time of Jesus.

Golgotha or Calvary on the MOUNT OF OLIVES was the site of the crucifixion. The Temple faced EAST and had a massive curtain held up by a 30 ton lintel. When Jesus died there was an earthquake and the curtain was torn in half from top to bottom. The centurion in charge of the crucifixion could see everything from his vantage point on the Mount: 

"Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God" (Matt. 27:54).

If the crucifixion was West of the Temple, they would have seen NOTHING due to the fact that 2 massive walls blocked their view!!

Mount of Olives overlooking Jerusalem was the place of the death and Resurrection of Christ. 

Mount of Olives overlooking Jerusalem was the place of the death and Resurrection of Christ. 

Jesus was buried very close to the summit of the Mount in a cave and arose from the dead 3 days later. The MOUNT OF OLIVES is the holiest spot on earth for all true Christians.

From 70 A.D., to the time of Constantine this was the headquarters of the true Church. Bible Manuscripts were collated here, this is where the Apostles met to discuss church affairs and direct the worldwide missionary activities of the true Church....Rome was not even in the loop during all this time!!

Church of the Holy Sepulchre is the false site of the Resurrection of Christ!!

Church of the Holy Sepulchre is the false site of the Resurrection of Christ!!

After the final war with the Jews from 132 to 135 A.D., the Roman Emperor Hadrian built a TEMPLE OF VENUS on this site. Before that it was the burial site of the Jewish freedom fighter John Hyrcanus. Emperor Constantine had it pulled down and officially proclaimed it the site of the Resurrection of Christ!!

"From the valley of Jehoshaphat the traveler immediately ascends the Mount of Olives, as this valley only intervenes between the city and the mount. After the ruins of the Temple, the Mount of Olives is the most important site at Jerusalem. King Solomon built upon this mount. The prophet Zechariah is buried at its foot, in large and ancient burial grounds. Christians consider the mount holy, believing it to be the site of the arrest and crucifixion of Jisho (Jesus) the Nazarene; the Franks recently renovated an octagon-shaped  church which the Byzantines built here long ago. After Byzantine rule of Jerusalem came the Arabs Moslems, who banned Jews from the Temple site, whereupon the Jews built a place of worship here on the mount. The entire Jewish community would ascend the Mount of Olives on the seventh day of Succot, Hoshana Rabba, for on that day the chief rabbi would announce the dates of the festivals for the year to come, and he would harangue against the Karaites and their calendar, and sometimes fights would break out between the two groups." (The World of Benjamin of Tudela, p.172,)

Benjamin of Tudela was a Samaritan-Jew  who wrote this First Letter from Jerusalem in the year 1173 A.D. No mention is made of the Wailing Wall or the so-called Church of the Holy Sepulchre as having any importance to Christians or Samaritan-Jews at that time. 

Changing the TIME and PLACE of the Resurrection of Christ was the final straw....God forsook Rome and the Empire. In little over 100 years the Empire was gone . . . and the Europeans were stuck with the Dark Ages and the Papacy the 7 headed, 10 horned monster of Daniel and Revelation.

The Lord was not taken by surprise however. He moved Westward to Hibernia and in the year 405 A.D., began over again with the ministry of the blessed Saint Patrick.

Jerusalem means City of PEACE. Thanks to Rome it has been a city of WAR for the past 1600 years!!

Salvation is by GRACE today . . . not by RACE. All who believe in the Risen Christ are Sons of God, children of Abraham, Spiritual Jews, God's chosen people, the Bride the Lamb's wife, circumcised in heart, etc., etc.

In the Old Testament, Israel was called the Wife of Jehovah. God's wife died in 70 A.D., to be replaced by the Lamb's Wife the true Church. God is NOT a bigamist.....He has ONLY ONE Wife!!

Editor's Notes

Thanks to the Counter-Reformation, most Protestants in America actually believe this Jesuit futurism and they don't mind if their hard-earned money goes to the Pentagon to support this "Jewish" state. They are a smashing success . . . for Rome!!

Bible critics love to say that the Gospels must have been written AFTER the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D., to negate the fulfillment of this great prophesy of Jesus about the destruction of the city.

One of the main reasons for the Crusades was to get control of the Holy Sepulchre from the Moslems. Millions of Roman Catholic Europeans and Moslems died in the centuries long war.

The "church" of the Holy Sepulchre was also the cause of the Crimean War which broke out between Great Britain, France and Russia. 

"Pray for the PEACE of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee" (PS. 122:6).

The best way to bring peace to Jerusalem is to expose the bloody warmongers!!
