Sowing Discord Among Brethren!!
Vikings making war on the saints
in the British Isles
6 things doth the Lord hate
. . . a proud look, a lying tongue . . . and he that soweth discord
among brethren" (Prov. 6:16-19).

In the Book of Revelation
chapter 12, Jesus said that the true church would have to flee into
the wilderness to escape the fury of the great Red Dragon of Rome....Hibernia
and Caledonia was the wilderness —beyond the bounds of the Roman
Empire. This is where the true Church found a refuge from the flood
of false doctrines that the Serpent cast out of his mouth.
Vikings attacked the Christians in the British Isles.
The Vikings were the forerunners
of the Spanish conquistadors. They followed the Christian
missionaries to Iceland, Greenland, and the New World, looting,
burning and killing.
of Barbados in the West Indies had a colony of Irish (Hibernian)
monks as early as the year 600. Those monks had nothing
in common with the Roman Catholic monks that supplanted them
centuries later. It seems that Barbados was actually named the
Isle of St. Brendan after the great Hibernian missionary explorer.
eventually conquered a large part of France which was later
called Normandy. They raided the coast of Spain and eventually
conquered Sicily where Christopher Columbus was born.
longships were decorated with the head of a Dragon. They drove a wedge
between Scotia Major and Minor. You will never find a Papal
Bull excommunicating those bloodthirsty murderers. This was the NATO
of the Dark Ages!!
Terrorists from the deep making
war on the saints:
"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" (Rev. 13:1).
Columba the great Hibernian evangelist in the year 563 founded the
Christian Institute of Iona which became world famous as a missionary
training Institute and center of evangelical learning. Iona was considered
the Harvard or Princeton of its day.
It was from that
small strategic isle that he accomplished the conversion of the Picts
or Caledonians to Christianity. He also laid the foundation of the
Scottish monarchy which continued on the female side right down to
Queen Victoria. It was the ambition of all the Scottish monarchs to
be buried in that "holy isle." Both countries looked upon
Iona as the center of their Faith and the cement of the sacred bonds
of friendship between them.
Around the year 800, merciless
mercenary Vikings began attacking and destroying the Christians and
burning their priceless libraries. Iona was sacked and burned in the
year 802. It was rebuilt but again destroyed. St. Columba wrote a
priceless book entitled Life of St. Patrick which also vanished.
Gradually the Vikings succeeded in colonizing the Western isles between
Hibernia and Caledonia and driving a wedge between the Scots in Hibernia
With the Roman Catholic Norman
Conquest of England in 1066, the Vatican followed the same pattern
as the Caesars. First Scotia Minor or Caledonia was to be subdued
and then Hibernia. But they failed just like their predecessors. Brave
men like Sir William Wallace (Braveheart), and Robert the Bruce prevented
the Norman Roman Catholics from conquering Scotia Minor.
The church that St. Columba founded
continued to exist right up to the time of the Reformation. It was
persecuted and despised; functioning mostly underground until the
dawn of that blessed event.
The people of Scotland knew that
the doctrine that John Knox preached was the same Gospel that emanated
from Iona almost 1,000 years earlier. . . . True Christianity was
preserved there and not at Rome!!
The greatest Union
of all time is the United States. The Soviet Union defeated the Nazi
hordes during WW II. Unions bring peace and promote prosperity. The
more countries you have the more wars you will have.
The Union of the British Isles was first proposed by King James VI.
King James was descended from the royal dynasty from Hibernia founded
by St. Columba. His dream was not fully realized until
1801 when Hibernia joined the Union.

was discovered by John Cabot. The numerous settlements in Virginia
were wiped out by the Spanish Inquisition.
ascension of King James I the first successful colony was planted

to become the greatest nation in the history of the world.

The Act of
Union with the country that is now called Scotland took place
in 1707. That Act permitted the Scots to emigrate to what is
now called the United States. They were the main impetus behind
the Revolution. It was not a coincidence that the Revolution
began about 70 years after their arrival. The Presbyterian Church
of which the majority belonged emphasizes equality and freedom
After the King James Bible,
the American Revolution did more to liberate the world and bring
down the pride of Rome than any other event in history. It inspired
France to revolution and finally get rid of their Roman Catholic
Queen Elizabeth I died in 1603, King James VI of Scotland became king
James I of England. This TERRIFIED the Spanish Inquisition because
James Stuart was a dedicated Protestant Christian. Guy Fawkes was
recruited by the Jesuits to murder the king and his entire family
before the king could begin to colonize the New World with real
planting gunpowder in the cellar.
Nov. 5, 1605, Guy Fawkes, a Jesuit dupe, planned to blow up the
Houses of Parliament in London and kill the King, his Danish wife,
his children, and over 2000 people both Protestant and Catholic.
Fawkes had 36 barrels of gunpowder hidden in the cellar. The plot
was exposed at the last minute. Had it succeeded, over 2000 innocent
people would have died instantly. The resulting fires would have
killed thousands more as most of the buildings were constructed
of wood and straw.
