Volume # 14
Greetings in Jesus name to all.   Scripture declares that in the very last days before the time of tribulation, the Holy Spirit will unveil to the Christian who the Antichrist is.
2 Thessalonians 2:3
"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;"
  Has this man of lies been revealed to the true Christian today? The Word of God gives us many graphic clues for identifying the "son of perdition."  In the true character of the faithful Word of God, the very next verse in this chapter shares with us a most undeniable piece of evidence. The verse reveals that this evil man is easily recognized as one "Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God." [2Thessalonians 2:4]

  Over the last several years I have done extensive research on this particular subject, and I have come to the conclusion that there is indeed one man walking on this troubled earth of ours that does indeed consider himself to be a "god on earth." I am not talking about some insignificant "cultist" leader of a small group of confused disciples. No, I am speaking of the leader of a worldwide religious organization
that is accepted by billions of people as being a "holy" and highly respected church of God. In fact, entire countries the world over have given their wholehearted loyalty to this man and the church he represents in these last days. Some nations are presently at war because they want all to follow this man of sin, or die!
  For now, I will not give his name. However, I will share with you documented facts that I have encountered over the years that prove he has been revealed to God's children today. I believe it is better for you to see the facts and make the decision on your own rather than believe mine, or any man's opinion.

  One more fact concerning the evil one. The book of Revelation states very plainly that Antichrist will be given a "mouth speaking great things and blasphemies" [Revelation 13:5]  The Word of God uncovers that to blaspheme is when one, "being a man, makest thyself God" [John 10:33] Is this not invigorating to see the Word of God establishing and verifying itself? We learned earlier in 2Thessalonians that the
man of sin will claim to take the place of God. Revelation tells us he will be one that blasphemes. Then the book of John defines blasphemy as one that claims to take the place of God! Pretty awesome I think! You must also understand that Antichrist is actually the leader of this worldwide church over the many years of its existence rather
than just one man in a certain day and  time.  "spirit of Antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world" [1 John 4:3] has been around a very long time! Read the following excerpts taken from this man of sin's very own mouth, and then make your own decision. Has the "son of perdition"  been

The Bull Unam Sanctam... Issued by POPE BONIFACE VIII records:
  “The Roman Pontiff judges all men, but is judged by no one. We declare, assert, define and pronounce: to be subject to the Roman Pontiff is to every human creature necessary for salvation that which was spoken of Christ ‘thou has subdued all things under his feet’ may well seem verified in me... I have the authority of the King of Kings. I am all in all and above all, so that God himself and I, the vicar of God, have but one consistory, and I am able to do all that God can do.”

   “Christ entrusted His office to the chief pontiff;... but all power in heaven and in earth has been given to Christ;... therefore the chief pontiff, who is His vicar, will have this power.” Corpus Juris chap. 1 column 29, translated from a gloss on the words Porro Subesse Romano Pontiff

  “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

  “All the names which are attributed to Christ in Scripture, implying His supremacy over the church, are also attributed to the Pope.” Bellamin, “On the Authority of Councils,” book 2, Chapter 17.

 The title “Lord God the Pope” is in a gloss of Extravagantes of Pope John XXII, ttl 14, chp 4, Declaramus.

   In an Antwerp edition of the Extravagantes, the words, “Dominum Deum Nostrum Papam” (Our Lord God the Pope) is found in column 153. In a Paris edition, see column 140.

   “Hence the Pope is crowned with a triple crown, as king of Heaven and earth, and purgatory.” Prompta Bibliotheca, Feraris,Vol.VI,p.26, art. “Papa.”

   Roman Catholic Canon Law stipulates through Pope Innocent III that the Roman pontiff is “the vicegerent upon earth, not a mere man, but of a very God;” in a gloss on the passage it is explained that this is because he is the vicegerent of Christ, who is “very God and very man.” Decretales Domini Gregorii translatione Episcoporum, (on the transference of Bishops), title 7, chapter 3; Corpus Juris Canonice (2nd Leipzig ed., 1881), col. 99; (Paris, 1612), tom. 2, Devretales, col. 205

  "We hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty" -Pope Leo XIII

 Understand this is from actual pages of Roman Catholic doctrine. The Pope truly believes he is God on earth!

   Some have said this is only the Pope's opinion of himself and no one truly believes he is God. If that's so, then I challenge them to explain the following excerpt from an article reporting on the shooting of the Pope back in the spring of 1981.

   “Shooting presidents, that’s politics, that I can understand. But shooting the Pope--it’s like shooting God!” TIME Magazine may 25,1981 article “It’s like shooting God”  By George J. Church.

   It’s bad enough for a "man" to believe that shooting another "man" is “like shooting God.” But to have a brazen disrespect for the lives of Presidents who are assassinated merely because of their occupation, is troubling to say the least.

   A simple fact to notice... If the Pope were God as he claims to be. Why has it never been recorded in any history book whatsoever of a Pope raising a dead man, or healing a blind man, a deaf man, a leper, or a cripple? How about a simple miracle as easy as healing himself? How many Popes have died since the beginning of the Roman
Catholic church? I thought they said they were God? God never dies! Pretty plain to see in the light of day now isn’t it?
  Another fact of the Popes blasphemous belief in his church's divine origin is found in most local libraries. Locate the following book entitled...  "The Vatican II Council." Go to Page 346 and find...

 “Christ’s Catholic church alone which is the all embracing means of salvation”

   Adam Clarke put it best regarding the Popes... "They have assumed infallibility, which belongs only to God. They profess to forgive sins, which belongs only to God. They profess to open and shut heaven, which belongs only to God. They profess to be higher than all the kings of the earth. which belongs only to God. And they go beyond
God in pretending to loose whole nations from their oath of allegiance to their kings, when such kings do not please them. And they go against God, when they give indulgences for sin. This is the worst of all blasphemies." -ADAMCLARKE, commentary, on Daniel 7:25

  Like I said earlier, there are many graphic facts exposing the Antichrist in God's Word. All one needs to do is research the past and you will see prophecy upon prophecy fulfilled before your very eyes. Remember, the Antichrist will not appear in all his hellish repulsing reality to the Christian. He will personify an incomparable respectable and godly man to sway you to his end.
