"Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that Antichrist shall come, even now there are many Antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time" ( I St. John 2:18).

Judas Iscariot was a type of the Antichrist.

Judas Iscariot giving Jesus the kiss of death.

Judas Iscariot  giving Jesus the kiss of death. 

Judas Iscariot was a type of the Antichrist, St. Paul nails him:

"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" (II Thess. 2:3).

Jesus called Judas the SON OF PERDITION (St. John 17:12) and Paul uses that appellative for his Man of Sin. 

Judas was an APOSTLE of Jesus and a priest. He was the perfect counterfeit....Nobody knew that he was a phony and a traitor even after living with him for over 3 years. St. Peter said this about Judas:

"For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry" (Acts 1:17).

Judas was  the BANKER for the disciples of Jesus. He held the bag and he was also a THIEF:

"Then saith one of the disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which should betray him, Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence and given to the poor? This he said, not that he cared for the poor, but because he was a THIEF, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein" ( St. John 12: 4-6)

At the end of the earthy life of Christ, Satan entered into Judas and he betrayed his Lord for MONEY:

"Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve (St. Luke 22:3). 

Then one of the twelve called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests, And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver (Matt. 26:14-15).

Judas sold his Lord for money . . 30 pieces of silver .  . .  and then went right out and bought . . . real estate. He wanted to be a property owner:

"Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity" (Acts 1:18).

Later on his conscience bothered him and he returned with the money:

"Then Judas which had betrayed him, when he saw that he (Jesus) was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to it" (Matthew 27:3-4).

He was the only man in the Bible who confessed his sins to another man . . . and they told him to get lost...If he had confessed to his Lord he would have been forgiven.

After that Judas self-destructed by committing suicide:

"Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out" (Acts 1:18)

This story of Judas' theft, betrayal and destruction is a type of the   papacy at the end of the world.

The Bible says that Satan and his fallen angels will be loosed from their prison and will enter not just one . . . but millions of unbelievers:

"And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, and shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea "(Rev. 20: 7-8).

The vast gold hoard stolen by the Vatican will be used to bribe and coerce the world into converting to Roman Catholicism....We call it the Last Great Inquisition!! 

The Apostle Paul warned the Church night and day with tears of a great apostasy that was to arise in their midst and finally culminate in the revelation of the Man of Sin. Some mysterious power was hindering his final revelation:

"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 . . . and now ye know what witholdeth that he might be revealed in his time . . . For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth (hinder) will let (hinder) until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that WICKED (lawless one) be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming" (II Thess. chapter 2).

The presence of Christians was hindering the manifestation of the man of sin. Since the Gospel was preached in the Roman Empire all the pagan oracles stopped working. With the removal of millions of Christians during the last great pagan persecution the way was open for Satan to introduce his man of sin to the world.

"For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many" ( Matt. 24:5).

Here we have many (plural) coming and saying I (singular) am Christ and deceiving many. This is a perfect description of a dynasty. Those who say Antichrist is one man are dreaming.

Since the time of Pope Constantine there have been about 300 Popes, all coming one at a time and sending multiplied millions to hell one generation at a time.

When St. Patrick arrived in Hibernia in 405, the great apostasy was well under way in the Roman Empire. He was especially chosen by God to evangelize the last known people and he believed that once his mission was accomplished time would end. That is what filled him with such a sense of urgency and his converts were soon gripped with this same evangelical fervor.

Rome rules the world through her Nuncios or Legates. Any country that accepts a Nuncio from the Vatican MUST recognize him as Dean of the Diplomatic Corps - above every other diplomat - even the President. The first Papal Nuncio to Hibernia was Malachy O' Morgain in the year 1140. That was the beginning of centuries of strife in that country.

Before the Reformation, Nuncios were the de facto rulers of most European countries. Since 1984, the U.S. has been ruled by the Papacy through her Legate. The present Nuncio is Gabriel Montalvo.

There are 3 Divine Institutions which God established upon the earth:

The Family (Gen 1.28).

Nations or Governments (Gen. 9:1-7).

The Church founded upon Christ the Rock (Matt 16:18).

The Papacy viciously attacks and undermines all 3 and does it in the name of Christ!!

Firstly, by forbidding her clergy to marry, Rome turns them loose to destroy the morals of society. Child pornography, abortion, homosexuality, alcohol, gambling, etc., etc., all undermine and destroy the family.

Secondly, Vatican City State is a Government within a Government. It has its own money, post office, radio station and its inmates are not subject to Italian law. All Roman clergymen are subjects of the Pope first, and their own Governments second.

Thirdly, the true Church is built not on Peter the Stone but upon:

"the foundation of the apostles and prophets Jesus Christ himself, being the CHIEF CORNER STONE" (Ephesians 2:20).

One of the unmistakable identifying signs of Antichrist would be his changing the TIMES:

"And he shall speak great words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High and think to change TIMES and laws: and they shall be given into his hands until a time and times and the dividing of times" (Daniel 7:25).

4 major time changes by the Papacy.

One The Seventy Weeks chronology of the Messiah as found in the Book of Daniel is changed to Ptolemy's false dates.
Two The date of Passover is changed. The anniversary of the Lord's death and Resurrection is always celebrated on the 14th day of the month, at the time of the Full Moon.
Three The chronological history of St. Patrick and Hibernia is changed.
Four The age of the world as found in the Book of Genesis is changed to billions of years!!

The Calendar that is used today by the Western world is called the Gregorian Calendar. It is named after the Pope who presided over the infamous St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre in France on August 24, 1572!!

When the Communists came to power in Russia in 1917, one of the first things they did was to change the TIME. They threw out the Julian calendar, and substituted the Pope's Gregorian calendar!!

Another identifying sign of Antichrist is unrelenting war and persecution of the saints:

Praise the Lord . . . and pass the ammunition. . . . This photo was found among other incriminating documents, in Madrid by the Spanish Loyalists in the palace of Count Vallellano, a financier and backer of Generalissimo Franco's rebels.

In the early centuries, the Antichrist had to use mercenaries to destroy the saints. As she grow more powerful disguise was unnecessary. The money to hire these killers came from the vast quantity of gold that flowed into Rome from all quarters of the Empire and was stored in underground secret vaults.

The war began as soon as the Scottish saints arrived on the Continent of Europe. Rome was growing in power and they would not tolerate any competition (especially from a small Island at the end of the world). After they labored to evangelize the savages that arrived from the North, their work was eventually destroyed and every trace of their existence was obliterated. Around the 9th century, merciless Vikings began destroying the Scriptural schools and colleges of Hibernia. The Norman/Vikings finally conquered Hibernia in the 12th century:

The Northmen or Vikings in their Dragon ships were merciless mercenary killers from the sea who waged war on the Scottish and English saints for hundreds of years. Their main target was the peaceful, unarmed Christian communities. During their attacks they would go into a bloodthirsty frenzy and that is where the expression "going berserk"originated. Their main occupation, besides killing, was the slave trade! Hundreds of thousands of Hibernian Christians were sold into slavery in the Arab world through the ports of Dublin and Limerick which they founded. They delighted in destroying books knowing that if you distort history the people have no way of knowing the true beliefs of their ancestors!!

Chronological history of the war against the saints in the British Isles.

Year Event
793 First Viking raid on the Christian school at Lindisfarne.
795 Viking raids on Iona, Inishbofin, Inishmurray, Skye and Rathlin.
802 The great Gospel lighthouse of Iona is burned.
823 First raid on Bangor. Survivors were sold into slavery to the Arabs.
835 Burning of Clonmacnoise.
836 Raid on Kilkare. 200 Vikings ships were anchored at Dublin to carry away captives to slavery.
837 Seizure of Dublin
840 Burning of Armagh
865 Invasion of England by Ivar's "great host"
911 Vikings under Rollo invade Northern France and that area becomes known as Normandy.
1014 Battle of Clontarf near Dublin. King Brian Boru is killed after the battle.
1066 Battle of Hastings. Norman conquest of England.
1172 Normans invade Hibernia

It is such a coincidence that these cowardly, murderous raids began just about the time (800 A.D.) that Charlemagne was crowned "Holy" Roman Emperor by the Pope!!

North Africa was another great stronghold of the saints

This was the area where St. Augustine lived and wrote his famous books. Around the middle of the 6th century huge Arab armies began attacking and slaughtering the believers in Christ:

In the 8th century, Arab hordes overran the Moroccan city of Fez and slaughtered 50,000 Christians.

Read The Prophet to find out how the Papacy started Islam.

"And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain on the earth" (Rev. 18:24).

The Bible talks about a very mysterious period of 1260 days, three and a half years or 42 months for the duration of this war on the saints. If we interpret this time on the Old Testament principle of a day for a year, we get fascinating results:

529 <-1260 years-> 1789
Justinian's Imperial Code confirms Papal supremacy. French Revolution begins, France the "eldest daughter" of the "church" of Rome breaks into Revolution.

606 <-1260 years-> 1866
Decree of Emperor Phocas makes the Pope "Universal Bishop" Spain expels Jesuits. Prussia defeats Austria making way for the liberation of the Papal States 4 years later!!

On the Day of Pentecost, when the mighty Holy Spirit descended on the disciples in the Upper Room, the first thing they did was get rid of their property. No earthly kingdom or Temporal Power for them:

"Neither was there any among then that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold, and brought the price of the things that were sold and laid them at the apostles feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need." (Acts 4:34-35).

Interesting Note.

During a trip he made from the Alps to the Tiber in 1850, Dr. J. A. Wylie recounts a story of how Pope Pius IX was urging the Austrian soldiers who were garrisoning the Papal States to fight the inroads of Protestantism by:
