The Pope's Palace
After the great events of Sept. 20, 1870, Pope Pius XI was desperately seeking some nation in Europe to come to his aid and restore the lost dominion.... No nation volunteered.... Should he decide to abandon Rome, the British Government promised a ship to take him to Malta.
It was at that fateful time that the Vatican looked westward across the ocean to the young republic that was just saved by President Lincoln after a bitter Civil War.
Daniel, the great Jewish Prophet, was nearing the end of a long and distinguished career that spanned almost a century. He saw the rise and fall of the Babylonian Empire and the beginning of the Persian. He was shown many wonderful visions about the future down to the very end of time. He was even given the exact year of the Messiah's appearance to Israel, the cutting off of the Messiah and the destruction of Jerusalem.
The great Prophet was very curious about how it was all going to end so he set his face to seek the Lord by prayer, with supplication, and fasting to receive an answer. The battle was an intense one. Satan did everything he could to hinder the answer to his prayer. It took 3 whole weeks for the answer to get through!!
Finally the Lord appeared to him in person and told him about the intense warfare in the invisible realm and how a certain Prince of Persia had withstood him 3 whole weeks. God revealed to him in minute detail the events of the last quarter of Jewish history from the end of the Captivity to Christ. These events included:
Then He suddenly changes focus and shows Daniel the events that would transpire at the end of the last quarter of Christian history. He mentions a time of trouble such as never was followed by the resurrection of the dead and the end of the days. He mentions a great persecutor of the saints which the New Testament titles Antichrist. He even given the exact location of his headquarters.
He was to dwell between the seas in the glorious holy mountain. The "church" of Rome is the only religious organization in the world that is named after a physical location and city—the city of Rome!!
The glorious holy mountain is a common reference to the city of God—the true Congregation of Christ:
This is the very same person that the Apostle Paul nails:
Paul is very specific about what he means by the temple of God. It is the true Congregation, not some temple at Jerusalem:
In other words a Christian on the outside and Satan on the inside. Antichrist would not be an Atheist, Communist, Moslem, or Jew, but a false friend like Judas Iscariot who betrayed his Master with a kiss of friendship. Jesus said:
Have the Popes claimed to be God in the temple of God? The answer is yes!! In John chapter 17 there is a title that is so reverent that it is used only once in the entire Bible. It is the Title of God the Father in Heaven:
The Pope sits as Christ in the Vatican, and when he speaks "ex-cathedra" he speaks in place of the Holy Spirit. Thus all the Titles of the Triune God are arrogated in this one person. A bit presumptuous don't you think?
Daniel says that Antichrist would not regard the desire of women. In other words he would oppose and lightly esteem marriage. This is fulfilled by his forbidding to marry which has caused more scandals and destroyed more lives over the ages that anything else in history—a veritable weapon of mass destruction indeed.
La Popessa - the female Pope!!
La Popessa - the female Pope. Sister Pascalina, a German nun, was the housekeeper to Pope Pius XII. According to UPI, she was one of the most rarely photographed women in the world. She ruled the Vatican with an iron fist. Nobody saw the Pope without her approval. Popes have had mistresses and fathered hundreds of children during the Dark Ages.
The ancient world's best kept secret.
The entire Papal system is based on one verse of the Bible, namely Matthew 16:18. In that verse it is claimed that Jesus made St. Peter the first Pope and gave him the keys of the kingdom. It is called the Primacy of Peter. Not one of the early Christians understood it to mean any such thing. The Council of Chalcedon held in the year 451 totally repudiates this idea. The first person to make such an outlandish claim was Pope Leo I.
Daniel says that the last Pope will be a tremendous persecutor of true Protestant Christians:
This will be the Last Great Inquisition. The ultimate weapon of mass destruction!!
It was the tidings from the East that the Messiah had come into the world that caused King Herod to go into a rage and kill all the babies in Bethlehem. This last Pope will be totally possessed by Satan and he will see the handwriting on the wall!!
The city of Rome has always been associated with wolves. Romulus and Remus the legendary founders of the city were nursed by a she-wolf.
The Vikings who attacked the Christians in the British Isles for centuries were also known by their wolfish nature. Here is a description of them by a Scottish historian Dr. Alexander:
Very close to where the Pope's Palace now stands once stood the sun worship Temple of Mithra:
