Bullet Proof Faith?

Once again people the Roman Catholic church is stepping into the news to boldly proclaim Christianity as a weak and useless effort to all the world. I ask, where does the true faith of the Pope of the Roman Catholic Church rest? Who does the Pope call his God? Who does the Pope pray onto? Who does the Pope cry out to for protection and safety? MAN! That's right my friends, MANKIND is who the Pope is called to glorify. Look upon the Pope as he struts about with full assurance that his life is in perfect safety no thanks to the God of all creation. Oh no, it is not the God who created all that is seen and unseen that he trusts. It is the creation OF that God he trusts! Look upon the Pope as he drives around in a man made bullet proof Pope-mobile with a smile of peace and safety upon his face. Is this the faith of a God fearing man? Is this the faith of a man called of God to glorify the Creator of the Universe? Or is this...

2 Corinthians 11:23-31, "Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool) I am more; in labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft. Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one. Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep; In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness. Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the churches. Who is weak, and I am not weak? who is offended, and I burn not? If I must needs glory, I will glory of the things which concern mine infirmities. The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is blessed for evermore, knoweth that I lie not."

The apostle Paul is not seeking fame or glory for himself. No he seeks glory and honor to be bestowed upon God Almighty for blessing him with the strength to endure such as this. His alive, breathing, and healthy body proclaims the Almighty to be a God that does indeed protect His own from death, and at the same time allow for Him to be glorified for all mankind to see. Yet the Pope who claims to be the World's Christian example openly proclaims otherwise. He drives about in a bullet proof "man-made" Pope-mobile proclaiming to all the world that God Almighty is unable to protect him as He did Paul. Therefore he must seek the help of mankind, the "created" beings of a living God to protect him. The Pope boldly tells all the loyal and trusting Catholic people that faith in God to protect you is a foolish act and you should rely on SELF or other men rather than God your Creator in desperate times of need. Is not the Pope suppose to be the leader of the Catholic people? Is he not to be their example of Christian faith? Is he not suppose to show the weak in faith how a man of God trusts his Creator and by so doing glorify the Almighty at the same time? Shame on him for making such a vile and disgusting statement! Shame on him for making all Catholics appear to be as weak as he is! Shame on him for proclaiming the Almighty is a weak and useless God! I have met many Catholics in my ministry that have far greater faith than this man will ever have. So I ask, when will the faithful Catholic stand up and proclaim that this church is no longer blessed of God? When will the true Christians still in this church open their eyes and see what their church leaders have done to their house of worship? When will the strong and God fearing Catholic shout from the rooftops that Hell has prevailed against the gates of this church! I know they are still in there! I have met them and Revelation 18:1-4 states plainly that they are still in their. Fact is there are true Christians in ALL the corrupted churches of the World. And as Revelation 18:1-4 states, they are about to LEAVE! THEY HAVE HAD ENOUGH!! Pray for them my friends. Pray that they too will soon see that the church they call home has become "the habitation of devils and the hold of ever foul spirit?" Pray that they will leave this "cage of every unclean bird" before the PLAGUES of Revelation fall upon them. For soon, very soon all the world will see with their very owns eyes that teh Scriptures were RIGHT!

Revelation 18:1-4, "And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues."

As I am sure most of you know, the bullet proof "Pope-mobile" has been around for a few years now. The reason I have written this post is for yet another reason. It is the most recent open and bold denial of God's power by the Roman catholic Church that I would like to make you aware of. The Pope is once again running scared for all the World to see. He is once again denying the Scriptural facts laid out before him. The Word of God tells all of us that trust in the Almighty that we should, "fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." (Matthew 10:28) The Almighty says man is fleeting and unable to do us eternal harm! Plus, the Almighty assures those of us that TRUST Him that, "No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; ..."(Isaiah 54:17) Is it not blunt? Is it not made clear that we are not to fear man, nor are we to worry about any weapons they may have formed against us! For our calling is of an eternal calling. Not even the most murderous wretch can pluck us from the hand of our eternal God. However, the Pope who proclaims himself the example of Christ on Earth chooses to fear MAN, and by that very act, in the same breath deny the Almighty Creator of all the Universe as being able to protect him. Notice... The headline reads:

Fear of terrorism, cults in millennium year
--London Telegraph
Issue 1432 Tuesday April 27, 1999
THE Vatican is to set up its own secret service to counter threats from terrorist groups and cults during Millennium celebrations when pilgrims will descend on Rome. -Reports said moves to form a department to co-ordinate, expand and upgrade security operations were based on information it had received about possible attacks. -But there was also concern over reports that members of the public had been found wandering around restricted parts of the Vatican, including the floor where the Secretary of Estate's offices and the Pope's private apartments are situated. -The new department, the Security Committee, will include six bishops or cardinals. Its aim will be to make the 100-strong Swiss Guards, in charge of surveillance, and the 120-strong Vigilance Corps work as one body.

That's right! The Pope "FEARS" terrorism and cults from attacking him. And in so doing he is once again proclaiming to all the world that "God cannot save you from terrorists and cultists, only mankind can!" The Pope is unable to pray unto the God of the living to send Angels to protect him simply because he chooses to look to men with GUNS to protect him instead! So the Almighty allows him what he dementedly desires to further prove what evil rewards you with. Think about that! The Pope now has armed men standing ready to blow your face clean off your skull if you so much as get a little too close to him when he parades before you in his bullet proof Pope-mobile. Did Jesus instruct the twelve to tackle, restrain, or even shoot any and all that would come near His person? Did Jesus drive a "NAIL PROOF" Christ-Mobile? Did Daniel wear "LION PROOF" armour in the lions den? Did Shadrach, Mesach, and Abednego wear "FIRE PROOF" clothing as they were thrown into the furnace? Would the Apostle Paul preach that anyone coming near him would be dragged off and beaten into submission? Did not Peter, Paul, or any of the Apostles and early Christians believe the Word of God when it bluntly stated that, "No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; ..." (Isaiah 54:17) My friends, the Pope is openly shouting throughout the world that GOD CANNOT HELP YOU! THE SCRIPTURES LIE, THE WEAPONS WILL PROSPER THAT HAVE BEEN FORMED AGAINST YOU! SO DO WHAT "YOU" CAN TO PROTECT "YOURSELF!"

Fact is people, all that is occuring here is Prophetic fact! Yes, this too was prophecied to occur! It was said rather graphically that there would be those that, "...changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen." (Romans 1:25) And so they are evident in these last days. Such a God we worship! Such a God that even in perilous times as these we see His prophecy coming to light EXACTLY as He said it would thousands of years ago! Such a loving and Almighty Father is He that cares for us so much that He warns us well in advance with so many easy to see facts. Do you understand what's going on today right before your eyes? Do you really?

One more fact to ponder... Just the simple act of placing ARMED MEN around the Pope proclaims to all that the Pope has instructed them to tackle, restrain, or even KILL their fellowman! Is it not written in Exodus 20:13, "Thou shalt not kill?" Even if the Pope never has the opportunity to "pull the trigger." He is stating that he WILL if he has to. In other words, he is saying plainly that, yes, it's true the Word of God says not to kill, but I WILL kill you anyway if you force me to! Is that Dirty Harry in the Vatican? Or is it just Blasphemous JohnPaul? I can hear the Pope interrogating them now...

"So... do ya feel blessed punk?"

"Well do ya?"

"Go ahead, make my "?-Sabbath-?" day!"

A few articles to surf...

Amid tight security, Pope John Paul II welcomed Iran's president Thursday,
receiving him for private talks that could lay ground for better relations
between Christianity and Islam. On the eve of the audience, President Mohammad
Khatami, in a speech near Florence, emphasized the common ground among the
world's religions, declaring there were no "quintessential differences" among

Protests despite security

If the Pope really was a Christian then he would realize that embracing a religion that HATES Jesus is not a good idea. is this "acceptance" of un Christlike religions something the Pope has done before?

Declaring he had come as a "friend from Rome," an exhausted Pope John Paul II offered a message of religious harmony... Buddhist leaders has threatened to disrupt the visit unless the pope apologize for passages... that they view as critical of their religions doctrine of salvation. As he did before leaving Rome Jan. 11, John Paul issued conciliatory remarks... Daily Southtown Jan. 22, 1995 p. A11

Religious HARMONY? What does the Word of God say about this?

2 Corinthians 6:14, "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?"

Is it working? Is the Pope's idea of "religious peace" and a world wide group hug working?


Tensions are rising in Nazareth, where Muslims want to build a mosque next to
the Christian Church of the Annunciation, where the angel Gabriel is said to
have appeared to Mary to tell her she would be the mother of Jesus. Christians
don't support the plan. Muslims, who are in the majority, say they have been
stabbed and stoned at the site of the planned building. In retaliation, some
Muslims stoned Christians at Easter.

Burned vehicles litter the streets

Nuff said?

Believe it or not, this article is authentic!


She once ripped up a picture of the Pope John Paul II on live television. Now,
Irish musician Sinead O'Connor has found a new way to alienate herself from the
Vatican: She's been ordained as the first woman priest in the Latin Tridentine
Church, a Roman Catholic splinter group. O'Connor says a donation of 150,000
pounds (US$200,000) to Bishop Michael Cox, the bishop who ordained her, had
nothing to do with it. But Pat Buckley, another Tridentine bishop, says
O'Connor's donation to Cox raises the possibility of simony -- the sin of
buying ordination.

O'Connor to change name for priestly career

Lawmakers from Florida's House and Senate have agreed on a plan that would make
the state the first to give students from the worst public schools vouchers to
pay tuition for private education. The compromise measure was agreed to on
Monday now has to be voted on by the full Senate and House. Both chambers were
expected to pass the bill, but final action was not likely before Wednesday.

Voucher system could be first this century

That's right! The Roman Catholic Church spear headed this "voucher" system so as to gaurantee a REMOVAL of the seperation of Church and state Jesus said was necessary. (See Mat. 22:17-22) Now the US Government and YOUR Tax dollars are paying for the Roman Catholic Church to decieve the children of this nation.

World: Europe

The Padre is said to have had the power of healing and for 50 years until his death in 1968 he displayed bleeding wounds, or stigmata, on his hands and abdomen. His devotees believe the stigmata were a miraculous echo of Christ's wounds at the Crucifiction.


Past pontiffs have been suspicious of the Padre and his miraculous wounds. The Vatican even bugged the Padre's confessional and opened his mail. He was banned from saying Mass for many years during his life

Such confusion! One minute Padre Pio is banned from mass, the next he is a saint? Let the Bible clear it up. John 19:30 plainly states, "When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost." When Jesus said "IT IS FINISHED" He didn't mean that Padre Pio would stop by a few hundred years from now and finish what He was unable to finish on the cross! The "stigmata" is merely a demonic blasphemous work of hell is all. It spits in the face of Jesus saying that what Jesus did was insufficient!

That's right! the Pope HAS a reason to party on 1-1-2000! Watch for it!


Uncertain their radars' Year 2000 computer problems will be solved, air traffic

Latin American governments were late in grasping the severity of the
"millennium bug."

Plans for command centers, armed troops
--London Telegraph
AMERICA'S major cities are preparing secret command centres and making plans to mobilise armed troops in the event of a possible breakdown of social order if there is widespread computer failure on the eve of 2000.

The result is a revival of the bunker mentality not seen since the end of the Cold War. Last week New York revealed that its new $12 million emergency command centre was: "Ninety per cent complete but fully operational." The 23rd-floor, 46,000 sq ft complex, near the World Trade Centre in Manhattan, can house up to 100 of the city's most senior employees and is protected behind a wall of bullet-proof glass. It was built above ground because of the risk of flooding from broken water mains.

Fears of widespread outages beginning Jan. 1
NEW YORK (CNNfn) - The nation's electric power utilities have completed only 44 percent of Year 2000-related preparedness and testing, giving rise to concerns about the possibility of widespread power failures as the new year approaches, according to a government report.

Gartner Group predicts long, lingering effects
--Minneapolis Star-Tribune
The script for Y2K is all wrong. Instead of Y2K failures occurring at midnight on Dec. 31, they will be spread over a 30-month period that will begin in July. So says the Gartner Group, a leading computer industry consulting firm based in Connecticut.

This is revisionist stuff, since practically all Y2K scenarios to date have focused on the potential for serious computer failures at midnight on Dec. 31. But Gartner maintains that only 10 percent of Y2K failures will occur within two weeks of Jan. 1.

Why should Y2K start in 1999 and stretch into 2001? In a recent speech in San Diego, Lou Marcoccio, another research director of Gartner's Y2K practice, said the causes will be forecasting software that looks six months into the future, the beginning of new fiscal years for many corporations and some "date-related anomalies in software code."

Do you recall what the US Government defines as a CULT?

ATTORNEY GENERAL JANET RENO -   "A cultist is one who has a strong belief in the Bible and the Second Coming of Christ; who frequently attends Bible studies; who has a high level of financial giving to a Christian cause; who home schools for their children; who has accumulated survival foods and has a strong belief in the Second Amendment; and who distrusts big government. Any of these may qualify a person as a cultist but certainly more than one of these would cause us to look at this person as a threat, and his family as being in a risk situation that qualified for government interference."

The lights are at risk of going out in parts of the United States on New Year's Day because some of the nation's utilities are still far behind in making sure their computers will work in 2000, a government report said Friday.
In addition, almost half of the utilities, including those that operate 20 nuclear power plants, said they didn't expect their computers would be ready by the June 1999 target date set by the industry.
