 The whore will be a church & state combined.

  

 Fact = Roman Catholic Vatican is a Church and a Nation at the same time.


  

 The whore of Babylon will sit upon 7 hills.

  


 
Fact : Documented Roman Catholic source states "It is within the city of Rome, called The City on Seven Hills, that the entire area of Vatican State Proper is now confined" The Catholic Encyclopedia, p. 529.


 
What are the seven hills of Rome?
Rome is known to be built upon seven hills. Rome was said to have been founded when Romulus and Remus, twin sons of Mars, ended up at the foot of the hill Palatine and founded the city. The other six hills are Capitoline (the seat of government), Quirinal, Viminal, Esquiline, Caelian, and Aventine.-"Geography.about.com"


 
ENCYCLOP∆DIA BRITANNICA
Seven Hills of Rome
...
group of hills on or about which the ancient city of Rome was built. The original city of Romulus was built upon Palatine Hill (Latin: Mons Palatinus). The other hills are the Capitoline, Quirinal, Viminal, Esquiline, Caelian, and Aventine (known respectively in Latin as the Mons Capitolinus, Mons Quirinalis, Mons Viminalis, Mons Esquilinus, Mons Caelius, and Mons Aventinus). -http://www.britannica.com/seo/s/seven-hills-of-rome/


  

 The Beast will rise from the "sea"

  

 Fact: Roman Catholicism arose out of Western Europe with a multitude of "peoples, nations, and tongues" as parishoners. And presently the Roman Catholic church sports the highest number of "peoples, nations and tongues" in any church the world over. And now, after the prophecied One World Church coming to fruition on June 26, 2000, the Pope was elected as leader to all churches that have joined with His. This nearly doubled the church membership in the first 5 years. Soon, all churches, including non-Christian faiths will declare the pope their "moral" leader.
 Fact: As of June 2008 174 Nations out of the 192 on Earth have state representatives at the Vatican.



   

 The four Beasts of Daniel will join as one in the last days as Antichrist.

   

 Fact: Documented Roman Catholic source states: "In a certain respect, she (the papacy) has copied her organization from that of the Roman Empire, has preserved and made fruitful the philosophical intuitions of Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle, borrowed from both Barbarians and the Bysantine Roman Empire, but always remains herself, thoroughly digesting all elements drawn from external sources." -Andre Retif, The Catholic Spirit, trans by Dom Aldhelm Dean, Vol. 88 of the Twentieth Century Encyclopedia of Catholicism (New York, Hawthorne Books, 1959) p. 85

 Fact: : Roman Catholic Jesuit Author, Malachi Martin states, "He (the Pope) is protected by four governments" - The Keys of this Blood (p. 120)



   

 Antichrist will be a strong Political power.

   


 Fact: Roman Catholic Author, Malachi Martin states in his book The Keys of this Blood: "He is as determined to be world ruler as was Constantine in his day (p.49) He is protected by four governments (p. 120) He is the best-known person of the 20th century (p. 123) He is personal friends with the leaders of 91 countries (p. 490) People of the world seem to him ready for strong worldwide moral government with control (p. 160). Sixteen thousand journalists covered his American visit (p. 490)"

 Fact: "During the 2,000 years the [Roman Catholic] Church has been on this earth, she has warred with nearly every government in this world. The world is full of their ruins. Their thrones have toppled over and fallen, their dynasties have come to dust. And the governments of the world today will meet the same fate if they challenge the hostility of the church of God. She remains; she is today what she was 2,000 years ago; . . she is today what she was during the Middle Ages; she is today what she was during the times of Protestant persecution during and since the sixteenth century; she is the invincible church of God. God help the state that attacks her; God help the king that provokes her hostility."--from a sermon by the Catholic priest D.S. Phelan on Sunday, Dec. 12, 1909, published in the Roman Catholic (St. Louis) periodical, The Western Watchman, Dec. 16, 1909.


   

 Antichrist will be a strong Religious power.

   


 Fact: Roman Catholic Author, Malachi Martin states in his book The Keys of this Blood: "The American ambassador says the Vatican is unmatched as a "listening post" (p. 120) The Vatican knows Saturday what will happen on Monday anywhere in the world. (p. 430) Papal structure is prepared for worldwide rule now. (p. 143)  

 Fact: Listen to Catholics as they speak of their Pope. Notice how they speak of the wonderful works of this mere man as often as a true Christian speaks of the wonderful works of Jesus Christ. Try it, ask them about their pope, then don't say anything, just listen. They will always glorify the creature over and above the Creator just as prophecy said they would. Prophecy says the Vatican will become the Religion of the people instead the God of creation. Historic fact is, the Catholics are those that have for generations, "...worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen." -Romans 1:25


   

 The Beast will control a man and his name will equal 666.

   

Before showing the fulfillment on this one, I must show valid proof that the "name" of the beast is in fact the name he has chosen. All too often the name has been declared invalid by Rome.

 Fact: Documented Roman Catholic source states "The letters inscribed in the Pope's miter are these 'VICARIUS FILII DEI'. which is the Latin for 'VICAR OF THE SON OF GOD.' Catholics hold that the church, which is a visible society, must have a visible head...., as head of the church, was given the title, 'VICAR OF CHRIST'." Our Sunday Visitor, (Catholic Weekly) "Bureau of information," Huntington, Ind., April 18, 1915. (Click here to see actual facsimilie of this )

 Fact: Roman Catholic Author Malachi Martin uses the exact same title for the Pope on pages 114 and 122 of his book, "The Keys of this Blood."


 
Since this evidence came forth regarding the title, "Vicarius Filii Dei," and it's obvious connection to the 666 calculation of Revelation. The Roman Church has opted to teach it's followers to declare this title bogus and not a true title of the Popes. They have gone to great lengths seeking to lie to their people so as to remove the overwhelming evidence against them. However, this ministry has found additional documented facts from official Roman Catholic sources regarding this title.

  Vicarius Filii Dei, is cited by the rector of Berlin, Andreas Helwig [or Helwich] (1572-1643) in his Antichristus Romanus.


 
You also might want to take a look at another facsimilie of the NOV 15, 1914 edition of OUR SUNDAY VISITOR (A Catholic publication) that openly uses the term Vicarius Filli Dei, as well as states THE NAME IS INSCRIBED ON THE POPES MITRE! You can view the actual document by clicking here. Not only does that publication show the title, "Vicarius Filii Dei, it also explains that it is considered a valid title as they do not refute that. Instead they attempt to epxlain why it it a trivial matter that it equals 666.

One more note of interest!  Why is it I ask, when you go to the archives of "Our Sunday Visitor" that this particular edition is missing? Why is it so difficult to get a copy of page THREE of the Nov 15, 1914 "Our Sunday Visitor?" It's obvious, they are purposely trying to hide the truth. Praise the Lord there are people that have copies of this publication outside Vatican control.

Lately, many defending the Vatican have declared the use of the "V" twice in "Vicarivs" is invalid. However, if you research it out you will find the letter "V" was used in Roman times as a vowel (U) or a Consonant. (V) This is a common practice among all languages. For example. The letter "C" can be used as a HARD C or a SOFT C in words. Or the Letter P can be used as a P or completely silent. For example, the P in "pig" is heard, wherein the "P" in "pneumonia" is not.

 "I have recently received what seems to be reliable information that a photo may exist of a papal funeral in St. Peter's Basilica near the beginning of the 20th century, in which the tiara inscribed with Vicarius Filii Dei can be seen. Combined with the above claims of Our Sunday Visitor, this would indicate that it was the funeral of either Leo XIII (1878-1903), or Pius X (1903-1914), and that previous popes probably wore the tiara in question. If anyone can turn up this photo and make it available to me, I will post it in this article." -excerpt taken from (http://www.aloha.net/~mikesch/666.htm)

 Eyewitness testimony claims that Pope Gregory XVI (1831-1846) wore the inscribed tiara during the Easter Mass of 1845, and that the word Vicarius was on the top crown, Filii on the middle, and Dei on the lower crown, the words spelled out with jewels. See... The Number of his Name.


   

 The Roman Church would reign for 1260 years before being "wounded unto death."

click here to get a better understanding of the 1260 years.

   

 Fact: "Vigilius...ascended the papal chair (538 A.D.) under the military protection of Belisarius." History of the Christian Church, Vol. 3, p. 327


 
Historical records reveal the papacy began its reign in 538 AD upon Emperor Justinian's decree, and under the military protection of Belisarius. And the Bible says the beast will rule for EXACTLY 1260 years before receiving a mortal wound. Now it's just a matter of simple mathematics. It is also a grand method by which to see the Lord glorified. If the prophecy is correct, 1260 years after 538 AD the Beast must receive a mortal wound. If you add 1260 years to the beginning year the Roman Catholic church became a church and state power, 538 AD, you will arrive in the year 1798 AD. According to the Bible we are told the first reign of the Beast will last 1260 years, and by doing the math, that comes to the year 1798. Did it end in 1798, and how? First understand, according to the prophecy, we learn that,  "He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword..." Revelation 13:10.

 Fact The prophecy is telling us that the beast would be destroyed with the sword (sword = military) at the end of its reign of exactly 1260 years. Did this happen to Papal Rome in 1798...? YES IT DID! On February 10th Napoleon Bonaparte in that EXACT year 1798 A.D. sent his General Louis Alexandre Berthier, with his army into Rome, Italy. It is recorded...  "In 1798 General Berthier made his entrance into Rome, abolished the papal government, and established a secular one." -Encyclopedia Britannica 1941 edition

Fact: Documented Roman Catholic source states  -"Half Europe thought... that with the Pope the Papacy was dead." -Joseph Rickaby "The Modern Papacy" Lectures on the History of Religion, Lecture 24, (London Catholic Truth Society, 1910), p.1 (Pope died  in August of 1799)

for a "pop up" that will explain the "42 months" as prophecy depicts.


   

 The Roman Church / Antichrist will receive a deadly wound.

   

 Fact: "In 1798 General Berthier made his entrance into Rome, abolished the papal government, and established a secular one." -Encyclopedia Britannica 1941 edition 


   

 This wound administered to the Beast will be healed:

   

Mussolini and (Cardinal) Gasspari sign historic Roman pact. 
 Fact: "The Roman question tonight was a thing of the past, and the Vatican was at peace with Italy... In affixing the autographs to the memorable document healing the wound of many years, extreme cordiality was displayed on both sides" -The San Francisco Chronicle. Feb. 11, 1929

Pope Becomes Ruler Of A State Again:
 Fact: Rome, June 7.--From 11 o' clock this morning there was another sovereign independent State in the world. At that time Premier Mussolini, as Italian Foreign Minister representing King Victor Emmanuel--the first Italian Premier ever to cross the threshold of the Vatican--exchanged with Cardinal Gasparri, Papal Secretary of State, representing Pope Pius XI, ratifications of the treaties signed at the Lateran Palace on Feb. 11. By that simple act the sovereign independent State of Vatican City came into existence. -New York Times July 7, 1929

Pope dies: August 1799:
 Fact: Documented Roman Catholic source states  -"Half Europe thought... that with the Pope the Papacy was dead." -Joseph Rickaby "The Modern Papacy" Lectures on the History of Religion, Lecture 24, (London Catholic Truth Society, 1910), p.1 


   

 The beast is one that "was", "is not" and "yet is".

   

 The Beast that was: The Roman church began in 538ad and continued until Napoleon sent in General Berthier in 1798ad

 ...and is not: From 1798ad until the signing of the Lateran treaty in 1929 the Roman Church/state was non-existent.

 ...yet is: From 1929 to present the Roman Church has been a church & state.


   

 The Beast will be a blasphemous beast:

   

 Blasphemy defined:

 Fact: Documented Roman Catholic source states "The Pope is not only the representative of Jesus Christ, he is Jesus Christ himself, hidden under the veil of flesh." Catholic National July 1895.


 Fact: Roman Catholic Pope states "We hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty" ...Pope Leo XIII


 Fact: Documented Roman Catholic source states "For thou art the shepherd, thou art the physician, thou art the director, thou art the husbandman, finally thou art another God on earth." Labbe and Cossart's "History of the Councils." Vol. XIV, col. 109


 Fact: Documented Roman Catholic source states - The title "Lord God the Pope" is found within a gloss of Extravagantes of Pope John XXII, title 14, chapter 4


 
Fact: The "confessional" of the Roman Catholic Church is indeed yet another identifiable feature exposing the Vatican as Antichrist's dwelling. They openly declare a MAN dressed as a priest has the power to FORGIVE SINS!


   

 Three nations will be destroyed by the Beast:

   

 Fact: Catholic emperors of the eastern empire found ways to help the pope by eliminating three of the Arian tribes. The Catholic emperor Zeno (474-491) arranged a treaty with the Ostrogoths in 487 which resulted in the eradication of the kingdom of the Arian Heruls in 492. And the catholic emperor Justinian (527-565) exterminated the Arian Vandals in 534 and signifcally broke the power of the Arian Ostrogoths in 538. Thus were Daniel's three horns - The Heruls, the Vandals, and the Ostrogoths - "plucked up by the roots." -C. Mervyn Maxwell, God Cares Vol. 1, p. 129


   

 The beast will understand the dark methods of the Occult, and do as Satan requests.

Two Eminent Churchmen Declare "Satanism Is Practiced in Vatican!"

 Fact: Documented Roman Catholic source states- "In recent weeks, a firestorm has been raging in Italy. The controversy revolves around the statements Archbishop Emmanuel Milingo, who made formal allegations that satanic activity is taking place inside the Vatican. When questioned by the Italian press about the allegations, he said that he stood by them. The Archbishop chose the Fatima 2000 International Congress on World Peace held in Rome in November 1996 hosted by the Fatima Crusader magazine as a platform to first make these allegations public.

 Official Roman Catholic Jesuit Oath:
I furthermore promise and declare that I will, when opportunity present, make and wage relentless war, secretly or openly, against all heretics, Protestants and Liberals, as I am directed to do, to extirpate and exterminate them from the face of the whole earth; and that I will spare neither age, sex or condition; and that I will hang, waste, boil, flay, strangle and bury alive these infamous heretics, rip up the stomachs and wombs of their women and crush their infants' heads against the walls, in order to annihilate forever their execrable race. That when the same cannot be done openly, I will secretly use the poisoned cup, the strangulating cord, the steel of the poniard or the leaden bullet, regardless of the honor, rank, dignity, or authority of the person or persons, whatever may be their condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time may be directed so to do by any agent of the Pope or Superior of the Brotherhood of the Holy Faith, of the Society of Jesus. -Subterranean Rome by Charles Didier, translated from the French and published in New York in 1843

Ferraris' Ecclesiastical Dictionary.

  Fact: Documented Roman Catholic source states-  "The Pope is of great authority and power that he can modify, explain, or interpret even divine laws...

 Fact: Documented Roman Catholic source states- "Had she not such power, she could not have done that in which all modern religionists agree with her; --she could not have substituted the observance of Sunday the first day of the week, for the observance of Saturday the seventh day, a change for which there is no Scriptural authority." -Rev. Stephan Keenan, A Doctrinal Catechism, "On the Obedience Due to the Church," chap. 2, p. 174. (Imprimatur, John Cardinal McCloskey, archbishop of New York.)

 Fact: Documented Roman Catholic source states- "The authority of the church could therefore not be bound to the authority of the Scriptures, because the Church had changed...the Sabbath into Sunday, not by command of Christ, but by its own authority." Canon and Tradition, p. 263

[and] in many cases persecution for religious opinions is not only permissible, but highly advisable and necessary."--"The Lawfulness of Persecution," in The Rambler, 4, June, 1849, pp. 119, 126 ["The Rambler" was an English Roman Catholic journal published from 1848 to 1862]..
