Babylon Paganism - How the Vatican Created Islam [pack]

Babylon Paganism - How the Vatican Created Islam [pack] What I’m going to tell you is what I learned in secret briefings in the Vatican when I was a Jesuit priest, under oath and induction. A Jesuit cardinal named Augustine Bea showed us how desperately the Roman Catholics wanted Jerusalem at the end of the third century. Because of its religious history and its strategic location, the Holy City was considered a priceless treasure. A scheme had to be developed to make Jerusalem a Roman Catholic city. The great untapped source of manpower that could do this job was the children of Ishmael. The poor Arabs fell victim to one of the most clever plans ever devised by the powers of darkness. Early Christians went everywhere with the gospel setting up small churches, but they met heavy opposition. Both the Jews and the Roman government persecuted the believers in Christ to stop their spread. But the Jews rebelled against Rome, and in 70 AD, Roman armies under General Titus smashed Jerusalem and destroyed the great Jewish temple which was the heart of Jewish worship...in fulfilment of Christ’s prophecy in Matthew 24:2. On this holy placed today where the temple once stood, the Dome of the Rock Mosque stands as Islam’s second most holy place. Sweeping changes were in the wind. Corruption, apathy, greed, cruelty, perversion and rebellion were eating at the Roman Empire, and it was ready to collapse. The persecution against Christians was useless as they continued to lay down their lives for the gospel of Christ. The only way Satan could stop this thrust was to create a counterfeit Christian religion to destroy the work of God. The solution was in Rome. Their religion had come from ancient Babylon and all it needed was a face-lift. This didn’t happen overnight, but began in the writings of the early church fathers. It was through their writings that a new religion would take shape. The statue of Jupiter in Rome was eventually called St. Peter, and the statue of Venus was changed to the Virgin Mary. The site chosen for its headquarters was on one of the seven hills called Vaticanus, the place of diving serpent where the Satanic temple of Janus stood. The great counterfeit religion was Roman Catholicism, called Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth. Revelation 17:5. She was raised up to block the gospel, slaughter the believers in Christ, establish religions, create wars and make the nations drunk with the wine of her fornication as we will see. Three major religions have one thing in common – each has a holy place where they look for guidance. Roman Catholicism looks to the Vatican as the Holy City. The Jews look to the wailing wall in Jerusalem, and the Muslims look to Mecca as their Holy City. Each group believes that they receive certain types of blessings for the rest of their lives for visiting their holy place. In the beginning, Arab visitors would bring gifts to the House of God, and the keepers of the Kaaba were gracious to all who came. Some brought their idols and, not wanting to offend these people, their idols were placed inside the sanctuary. It is said that the Jews looked upon the Kaaba as an outlying tabernacle of the Lord with veneration until it became polluted with idols. In a tribal contention over a well (Zamzam) the treasure of the Kaaba and the offerings that pilgrims had given were dumped down the well and it was filled with sand – it disappeared. Many years later Adb Al- Muttalib was given visions telling him where to find the well and its treasure. He became the hero of Mecca, and he was destined to become the grandfather of Muhammad. Before this time, Augustine became the bishop of North Africa and was effective in winning Arabs to Roman Catholicism, including whole tribes. It was among these Arab converts to Catholicism that the concept of looking for an Arab prophet developed. Muhammad’s father died from illness and sons born to great Arab families in places like Mecca were sent into the desert to be suckled and weaned and spend some of their childhood with Bedouin tribes for training and to avoid the plagues in the cities. After his mother and grandfather also died, Muhammad was with his uncle when a Roman Catholic monk learned of his identity and said, Take your brother’s son back to his country and guard him against the Jews, for by god, if they see him and know of him that which I know, they will construe evil against him. Great things are in store for this brother’s son of yours. The Roman Catholic monk had fanned the flames for future Jewish persecutions at the hands of the followers of Muhammad. The Vatican desperately wanted Jerusalem because of its religious significance, but was blocked by the Jews. Another problem was the true Christians in North Africa who preached the gospel. Roman Catholicism was growing in power, but would not tolerate opposition. Somehow the Vatican had to create a weapon to eliminate both the Jews and the true Christian believers who refused to accept Roman Catholicism. Looking to North Africa, they saw the multitudes of Arabs as a source of manpower to do their dirty work. Some Arabs had become Roman Catholic, and could be used in reporting information to leaders in Rome. Others were used in an underground spy network to carry out Rome’s master plan to control the great multitudes of Arabs who rejected Catholicism. When St Augustine appeared on the scene, he knew what was going on. His monasteries served as bases to seek out and destroy Bible manuscripts owned by the true Christians. The Vatican wanted to create a messiah for the Arabs, someone they could raise up as a great leader, a man with charisma whom they could train, and eventually unite all the non-Catholic Arabs behind him, creating a mighty army that would ultimately capture Jerusalem for the pope. audio How the Vatican Created Islam Antichrist Islam is Promoted by Pope Francis.mp3 Dr Scott Johnson - How The Vatican Created Islam.mp3 Eric Jon Phelps - The Vatican Behind the Creation of Islam.mp3 I Converted to Islam After Visiting the Vatican - Musa Cerantonio.mp3 ISIS, CIA, and Vatican Connection.mp3 Masons and Islam in the Vatican – Leo Lyon Zagami.mp3 More Historic Proof Popes Created Islam.mp3 Proof the Vatican Created Islam, Both Are Satanic Paganism from Ancient Babylon.mp3 The Final Roman Emperor, the Islamic Antichrist, and the Vatican's Last Crusade.mp3 Vatican and Islam Share Babylon the Great.mp3 Vatican Secrets Exposed - Jordan Maxwell.mp3 Vatican Secrets Islam Uncovered with Jordan Maxwell.mp3 Why the Vatican Created Islam - Jonathan Gray.mp3 docs How the Vatican Created Islam by Alberto Rivera.pdf How Vatican Created Islam.pdf The Black Pope Vatican Assassins.pdf The Vatican and Islam.pdf The Vatican Islam Connection.pdf The Vatican Jesuit link to the new world order.pdf ebooks Albert Close - Jesuit Plots, From Elizabethan to Modern Times.pdf Avro Manhattan - The Vatican's Holocaust.pdf Manhattan, Avro - Der Vatikan und das XX.

Review: Judging from the reviews, different people get different things from this book. I can see that. The title is "Building Your Cult. Power, Politics, and People." The book starts off with the focus on how to successfully build your cult and avoid pitfalls. This could just as easily be about building your business brand or the art of persuasion. I bought this book because of the reviews that talked about how it can change your life. I am always interested in self growth. I also was interested in how the author presented NLP. I found this part of the book the most interesting and the least covered. I am a certified NLP practitioner, so the very quick overview of that was enough for me. There are one line to one paragraph flashes of brilliance scattered throughout the book that I wish were expanded upon, but perhaps the fact that the author doesn't give it all to you makes it better. Maybe it's the kind of thing that is more meaningful when you have to do the work. The book is easy to understand, but I read it slowly to absorb the finer points. The information is good, but the editing isn't the greatest (as others have pointed out) and the way that ideas are presented is jarring at times. It gives enough at a fair enough price that I want to see what else the author has to say. On his website, he says if you send him your Amazon receipt, he will send you something free (or if you buy the book on his site, he will send the free thing too). I did that, but didn't get a response. Anyway, if the review seems disjointed, it's because the book is too. I do recommend it - especially if you actually do want to start a cult - but there is a lot more to it than that. ebooks: Building Your Cult - Power Politics and People by Jones Dantalion.pdf Dantalion Jones - Building Your Cult 119p 2010.pdf audiobook: Building Your Cult.mp3 Computer voice Mac Tessa, 64kbps, run time 2hrs 53min 50sec tags: cult, sect, order, faith, religion, mind control, indoctrination, church, power, politics

Alexander Hislop The Two Babylons (1853) The Two Babylons or: The Papal Worship Proved to Be the Worship of Nimrod Modern Babylon (Rev. 17:5) is the Roman Catholic Church Where did the practices and beliefs of Roman Catholicism come from? In this scholarly classic, first published over eighty years ago, Alexander Hislop reveals that many Roman Catholic teachings did not originate with Christ or the Bible, but were adopted from ancient pagan Babylonian religion, and given Christian names. Although difficult reading, this book accurately provides a fascinating historical in-depth examination of the shocking similarities between the practices of ancient Babylonian religion and those of today's Roman Catholic church. There is this great difference between the works of men and the works of God, that the same minute and searching investigation, which displays the defects and imperfections of the one, brings out also the beauties of the other. If the most finely polished needle on which the art of man has been expended be subjected to a microscope, many inequalities, much roughness and clumsiness, will be seen. But if the microscope be brought to bear on the flowers of the field, no such result appears. Instead of their beauty diminishing, new beauties and still more delicate, that have escaped the naked eye, are forthwith discovered; beauties that make us appreciate, in a way which otherwise we could have had little conception of, the full force of the Lord's saying, "Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: and yet I say unto you, That even Solomon, in all his glory, was not arrayed like one of these." The same law appears also in comparing the Word of God and the most finished productions of men. There are spots and blemishes in the most admired productions of human genius. But the more the Scriptures are searched, the more minutely they are studied, the more their perfection appears; new beauties are brought into light every day; and the discoveries of science, the researches of the learned, and the labours of infidels, all alike conspire to illustrate the wonderful harmony of all the parts, and the Divine beauty that clothes the whole. If this be the case with Scripture in general, it is especially the case with prophetic Scripture. As every spoke in the wheel of Providence revolves, the prophetic symbols start into still more bold and beautiful relief. This is very strikingly the case with the prophetic language that forms the groundwork and corner-stone of the present work. There never has been any difficulty in the mind of any enlightened Protestant in identifying the woman "sitting on seven mountains," and having on her forehead the name written, "Mystery, Babylon the Great," with the Roman apostacy. ebooks: Alexander Hislop The Two Babylons (1916) 255p.pdf The Two Babylons by Alexander Hislop (2010) 408p.pdf audiobook: specs: Mac computer voice Tessa South Africa, MP3, 56 kbps, 16 hrs 42 min 04 sec tags: nimrod, new world order, conspiracy, illuminati, babylon, politics, history, catholic, church

Avro Manhattan Vatican Jesuit Holocaust Lincoln Assassination Avro Manhattan The Vatican's Holocaust THE VATICAN'S HOLOCAUST is not a misnomer, an accusation, and even less a speculation. It is an historical fact. Rabid nationalism and religious dogmatism were its two main ingredients. During the existence of Croatia as an independent Catholic State, over 700,000 men, women and children perished. Many were executed, tortured, died of starvation, buried alive, or were burned to death. Hundreds were forced to become Catholic. Catholic padres ran concentration camps; Catholic priests were officers of the military corps which committed such atrocities. 700,000 in a total population of a few million, proportionally, would be as if one-third of the USA population had been exterminated by a Catholic militia. What has been gathered in this book will vindicate the veracity of these facts. Dates, names, and places, as well as photos are there to prove them. They should become known to the American public, not to foster vindictiveness, but to warn them of the danger, which racialism and sectarianism, when allied with religious intolerance can bring to any contemporary nation, whether in Europe or in the New World. This work should be assessed without prejudice and as a lesson; but even more vital, as a warning for the future of the Americans, beginning with that of the USA. Avro Manhattan The Vatican Moscow Washington Alliance The Vatican plays a vital part in history and world politics, as well as Biblical prophecy. God reveals her true identity in chapters 17 and 18 of the book of Revelation. All true Christians should carefully watch her activities. The Vatican is currently playing along with both Russia and the United States. Historically, she has always gone with the winner, and always leaves an escape hatch for herself. The great prize for the Vatican is the U.S. she is closing in by preaching a Marxist gospel in Latin America and Mexico, and using immigration to flood this nation with Catholic adherents. But for Christians, this is actually a spiritual problem. We must be aware of the behind-the-scenes activity, but our response must be to win the Roman Catholics to Christ. There is probably no other person more qualified to write on the subject of Vatican politics than Avro Manhattan. He has authored many books and is one of the world-renowned authorities on Roman Catholic activities. The Lord tells us to be "WISE AS SERPENTS" (Mat 10:16). I encourage you to read THE VATICAN MOSCOW WASHINGTON ALLIANCE. When you know what's going on, you will know both how to pray, and that we MUST win Roman Catholics to Christ.

Unrepentant - Kevin Annett and Canada's Genocide (2006) Files: 1) Documentary 2) ebook: Hidden No Longer Genocide in Canada Past and Present by Kevin D Annett.pdf - 425 pp 50,000 native children murdered in church/province run schools Unrepentant documents Canada's dirty secret - the planned genocide of aboriginal people in church-run Indian Residential Schools - and a clergyman's efforts to document and make public these crimes. First-hand testimonies from residential school survivors are interwoven with Kevin Annett's own story of how he faced firing, de-frocking, and the loss of his family, reputation and livelihood as a result of his efforts to help survivors and bring out the truth of the residential schools. This saga continues, as Annett continues a David and Goliath struggle to hold the government and churches of Canada accountable for crimes against humanity, and the continued theft of aboriginal land. Unrepentant took nineteen months to film, primarily in British Columbia and Alberta, and is based on Kevin Annett's book Hidden from History: The Canadian Holocaust. The entire film was a self-funded, grassroots effort, which is reflected in its earthy and human quality. Kevin D. Annett (aka. Kevin McNamee-Annett, and Eagle Strong Voice) is a Canadian writer and former minister of the United Church of Canada. He has authored three books about Canadian aboriginals - Love and Death in the Valley, Hidden from History: The Canadian Holocaust and Unrepentant: Disrobing the Emperor. His Ph.D thesis on the topic of the Canadian genocide was blocked by the establishment so he used it as source material for a video instead, publishing Unrepentant in 2007 and posting it on the WWW and achieving over 500,000 hits within a year[1]. His treatment at the hands of the Canadian establishment over his persistent, selfless advocacy for the indigenous populations of Canada, is an object lesson in the gross self-serving dishonesties, corruption and hypocrisies of power. Education and ministry In the 1980s, Kevin graduated from the University of British Columbia with a Bachelor's degree in anthropology and a Master's degree in political science. In 1990, he graduated from the Vancouver School of Theology with a Master of Divinity, and was subsequently ordained by British Columbia Conference of the United Church of Canada. In 1990-1991 he served in churches in rural Manitoba, and in 1991-1992 served at the Fred Victor Mission in Toronto, an outreach street-ministry of The United Church of Canada. He was appointed minister to St. Andrew's United Church in Port Alberni, British Columbia in 1992. Port Alberni ministry From early in his ministry Kevin was puzzled by the total absence of indigenous people from his church. He determined both to discover why this should be and to be as pro-active in his contacts with his indigenous parishioners, as with his traditional aging white flock. Unknown to Kevin at the time, he had embarked on a deeply traumatic Road to Damascus-type journey which, at its nadir, was to see his marriage and family torn apart, render him destitute and earmark him as a reviled outcast from his own 'Establishment' society. During his first year in Port Alberni, he "learned quickly who was the worst child sex offender in town, mostly from his victims or their families. The bastard was an elder at the nearby Anglican church. He was also the head of the local Rotary Club and led their charitable fund raising campaign every year. He was the buddy of the Mayor and a 'good Christian'".[2] Residential school work and writings Annett has written three books on the subject of residential school abuse in Canada. The first, Hidden from History: The Canadian Holocaust, was published in two editions: 2001 and 2005. A substantially updated, revised 3rd edition in September 2011 was retitled Hidden No Longer.[3]The second, Love and Death in the Valley, was published in 2002.[4] In 2006, Kevin produced a documentary on this topic: Unrepentant: Kevin Annett and Canada's Genocide which won the 2006 award for 'Best Director' at the New York International Independent Film & Video Festival [5]. It provided the title for his third book "Unrepentant: Disrobing the Emperor" published in January 2011 [6] Denied entry into England 2011 On May 29, 2011, Annett was denied entry into England at Stansted airport, and briefly held in an immigration prison before being deported. The only explanation offered was that giving public lectures was not an appropriate activity for visitors to UK. He had been scheduled to speak at a public rally in London against child trafficking by church and state.[7] The International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State On 15th June 2010, Kevin Annett founded The International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State. This is a network of activists who have given up on the legal systems of nation states and constituted their own. After a "Tribunal of Conscience" in Brussels in the fall of 2012, they reviewed the available evidence before indicting all 30 defendants on February 25, 2013 for perpetrating or concealing the Canadian genocide. These defendants included then Joseph Ratzinger (formerly Pope Benedict XVI), Tarcisio Bertone former Cardinal, Elizabeth Windsor "Queen of England" and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper. _____ Unrepentant: Kevin Annett and Canada’s Genocide Film review by Brent Erickson Unrepentant, Kevin Annett and Canada’s Genocide, Produced by Kevin Annett, Louie Lawless and Lori O’Rorke, 2006 _“Their reason for killing and destroying such an infinite number of souls is that the Christians have an ultimate aim, which is to acquire gold, and to swell themselves with riches in a very brief time and thus rise to a high estate, disproportionate to their merits. It should be kept in mind that their insatiable greed and ambition, the greatest ever seen in the world, is the cause of their villainies.” -Bishop Bartolomé de Las Casas, from Brief Account of the Devastation of the Indies, 1542. When Kevin Annett accepted the position of Minister at St. Andrews United Church in Port Alberni, BC, in 1992, he was a little naïve. After leading his first service he asked a colleague why no First Nations people attended the church, considering that over one-third of the city’s population was First Nations. Unsatisfied with the answer he received, Annett began a journey of discovery that would get him fired and physically assaulted, and destroy his reputation and marriage, but would produce a film that is of monumental importance to our country’s efforts to come to terms with its own history. Unrepentant: Kevin Annett and Canada’s Genocide is a 106-minute documentary that chronicles the deliberate genocide of Canada’s Indigenous people, from early colonization and the first use of biological warfare, to church-run residential schools, to the ongoing theft of resource-rich Native land. Solid historical information and first-hand testimonies of residential school survivors are interwoven with Annett’s own story to create a powerful and educational film. Unrepentant is based on Kevin Annett’s self-published 2001 book Hidden from History: The Canadian Holocaust, an important and moving work in its own right. The Unrepentant project was a completely self-funded, grassroots effort, and the low budget is evident in the production quality of the film. Unlike other recent political documentaries, Unrepentant is not witty, cute, or campy. It has no ironic music, clever editing or technical wizardry, just a straightforward, stark, and often disturbing account of a people who survived over four hundred years of ethnic cleansing, and of a man willing to sacrifice everything to help tell their story. It may be difficult for many non-Native Canadians to come to grips with the information presented in Unrepentant, as it has been long suppressed and denied. Beatings, electric shocks, forced sterilization, medical experimentation, starvation, rape, and the deaths and disappearance of more than 50,000 First Nations children in residential schools—Annett’s film exposes the depth of Canada’s savagery towards Aboriginal people. Unrepentant draws on personal testimony and eyewitness accounts to bring this history to life, while drawing upon Annett’s own experiences to demonstrate the systematic denial of the historic and ongoing violation of Aboriginal people. “I witnessed the murder of Maisie Shaw,” testified Harriet Nahanee, Native Elder of the Pacheedaht Nation (1935-2007). In December 1946, Alfred Caldwell, then Principal of the Alberni Residential School, kicked fourteen-year-old Maisie Shaw down a flight of stairs to her death. Annett reported the Maisie Shaw murder the day he learned about it, in December 1995, but encountered a familiar resistance when requesting an investigation. “They had the same response to any of the deaths I reported, year after year. Complete refusal,” he says. But Kevin Annett wasn’t fired for helping to expose the murders of First Nations people. Instead, it was his exposure of the colonial lust for land and resources, which continues to define our society’s relationship to its Aboriginal people, that provoked such severe censure. As Annett states, “The Achilles heel here is the issue of the land.” In the course of my work with residential school survivors while I was still a Minister in Port Alberni,” he explains, “I stumbled over the fact that the church had engaged in the theft and speculation of Aboriginal land in Ahousat, B.C., in order to profit its corporate benefactor, the logging company MacMillan-Bloedel.” In October 1994, Annett wrote a letter to church officials expressing concern about the issue of stolen Native land. “A week later,” he says, “Presbytery officials began meeting secretly with my church board to arrange my removal as Minister at St. Andrew’s.” “_Unrepentant_ is many things, but for me it is a mirror, held up to my own Euro-Canadian culture and people,” he states. For Annett, our antipathy towards the original people of this land represents a deep and abiding disrespect of life itself. “I am counseling and speaking to the dying in this film: to the members of a collapsing culture whose ways are causing their own planetary self-destruction in the wake of their extermination of millions of Indigenous people.” With the film recently garnering a Best Director Award at the 2006 New York Independent Film and Video Festival, and winning the award for Best International Documentary at the 2006 Los Angeles Independent Film Festival, Annett’s efforts are finally being recognized.
