God's declaration of Truth


Luke Chapter 19

The words of Our Only Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in red.

19:10 "For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost."
19:11 As they were hearing these things, he added and spoke a parable, because he was nigh to Jerusalem and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately be manifested.
19:12 He said therefore: "a certain nobleman went into a far country, to receive for himself a kingdom and to return.
19:13 And calling his ten servants, he gave them ten pounds and said to them: Trade till I come.
19:14 But his citizens hated him and they sent an delegation after him, saying: 'We will not have this man to reign over us.'
19:15 And it came to pass that he returned, having received the kingdom: and he commanded his servants to be called, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading,
19:16 And the first came saying: 'Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds.'
19:17 And he said to him: 'Well done, thou good servant, because thou hast been faithful in a little, thou shalt have power over ten cities.'
19:18 And the second came, saying: 'Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds.'
19:19 And he said to him: 'Be thou also over five cities.'
19:20 And another came, saying: ' Lord, behold here is thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin.
19:21 For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up what thou didst not lay down: and thou reapest that which thou didst not sow.'
19:22 He saith to him: 'Out of thy own mouth I judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up what I laid not down and reaping that which I did not sow.
19:23 And why then didst thou not give my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have exacted it with usury?'
19:24 And he said to them that stood by: 'Take the pound away from him and give it to him that hath ten pounds.'
19:25 And they said to him: 'Lord, he hath ten pounds.'
19:26 But I say to you that to every one that hath shall be given, and he shall abound: and from him that hath not, even that which he hath shall be taken from him.
19:27 But as for those my enemies, who would not have me reign over them, bring them hither and slay them in my presence."
19:28 And having said these things, he went before, going up to Jerusalem.
19:29 And it came to pass, when he was come nigh to Bethphage and Bethania, unto the mount called Olivet, he sent two of his disciples,
19:30 Saying: "Go into the town which is over against you, at your entering into which you shall find the colt of an ass tied, on which no man ever hath sitten: loose it and bring it.
19:31 And if any man shall ask you: 'Why are you loosing it?' You shall say thus unto him: Because the Lord hath need of it.' "
19:32 And they that were sent went their way and found the colt standing, as he said unto them.
19:33 And as they were loosing the colt, the owners thereof said to them: "Why are you loosing it?
19:34 But they said: "Because the Lord has need of it."
19:35 And they brought it to Jesus. And casting their cloaks over the colt, they set Jesus on it.
19:36 And as he went, they spread their cloaks upon the road.
19:37 And when he was drawing near, being now at the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole company of his disciples began to rejoice and to praise God with a loud voice, for all the miracles that they had seen,
19:38 Saying: "Blessed is he who comes as king, in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!"
19:39 And some of the Pharisees, from the crowds, said to him: "Master, rebuke thy disciples."
19:40 He said to them: "I tell you that if these keep silence, the stones will cry out."
19:41 And when he drew near, seeing the city, he wept over it, saying:
19:42 "If thou also hadst known, and that in this thy day, the things that are to thy peace: but now they are hidden from thy eyes.
19:43 For the days shall come upon thee: and thy enemies shall cast a trench about thee and compass thee round and straiten thee on every side,
19:44 And beat thee flat to the ground, and thy children who are in thee. And they shall not leave in thee a stone upon a stone: because thou hast not known the time of thy visitation."
19:45 And entering into the temple, he began to cast out them that sold therein and them that bought.
19:46 Saying to them: "It is written: My house is the house of prayer. But you have made it a den of thieves."
19:47 And he was teaching daily in the temple. And the chief priests and the scribes and the rulers of the people sought to destroy him.
19:48 And they found not what to do to him: for all the people were very attentive to hear him.

The Second Epistle of St. Paul to the Thessalonians

The day of the Lord is not to come till the man of sin be revealed. The apostle's teachings are to be observed.

2:1 And we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and of our gathering together unto him:
2:2 That you be not easily moved from your sense nor be terrified, neither by spirit nor by word nor by epistle. as sent from us, as if the day of the Lord were at hand.

Chap. 2. Ver. 2. Spirit . . . utterance. . . letter indicate three possible sources of their belief that the parousia is imminent. Spirit refers to some falsely claimed revelation, utterance may be a statement of Paul’s which was misunderstood, or wrongly attributed to him, the letter seems to be one forged in Paul’s name.

2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for unless there come a revolt first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition

Ver. 3. . . The parousia must be preceded by a great apostasy, i.e., a great religious revolt, and the advent of the man of sin, i.e., Antichrist. Son of perdition, one entirely deserving of eternal punishment.

Ver. 3. The day of the Lord will not come. These words have been inserted to complete the sentence, which in the original is elliptical. The expanded reads "Let no man deceive you by any means: for the day of the Lord will not come unless there come a revolt first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition"

2:4 Who opposeth and is lifted up above all that is called God or that is worshipped, so that he sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself as if he were God.

Ver. 4. In the temple, that of Apostate Jerusalem which the full consensus of the Church Fathers declare he will rebuild - i.e. the Temple of Remphan; and in the Apostate shell of the former Christian church, which he perverts to his own worship: as the Freemasons have done to the Vatican.

Ver. 4. Antichrist will be characterized by great impiety and pride. He sits in the temple of God, etc. He will aspire to be treated as God and proclaim that he is really God.

2:5 Remember you not that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
2:6 And now you know what restrains him, that he may be revealed in his proper time.

Ver. 6. What restrains him. The Thessalonians knew the obstacle. We also know that it is Jesus Christ.

2:7 For the mystery of iniquity is already at work: only that he who is at present restraining it, does still restrain, until he is gotten out of the way.

Ver. 7. Mystery of iniquity, the evil power of Satan’s threefold prevarication and total Apostasy from God, of which Antichrist is to be the public exponent and champion. He who is at present restraining it. The obstacle is now spoken of as a person. Some point out that Michael the archangel and his heavenly army are obstacles, and this is true, which now prevent the appearance of Antichrist – but the primary obstacle is, as St. Justin Martyr teaches: Jesus Christ Himself; when the great Apostasy is complete, then in effect, Christ is “gotten out of the way.”

2:8 And then that wicked one shall be revealed: whom the Lord Jesus shall kill with the spirit of his mouth and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: him

Ver. 8. When Christ appears in glory, He will inflict defeat and death on Antichrist by a mere word of command.
2:9 Whose coming is according to the working of Satan, in all power and signs and lying wonders:

Ver. 9 – 10. By the aid of Satan Antichrist will perform prodigies which men will falsely regard as miracles, and by means of which they will be led to adopt sinful practices.

2:10 And with all wicked deception to those who are perishing. For they have not received the love of truth that they might be saved.
2:11 Therefore God shall send them the operation of error, to believe lying:

Ver. 11. God shall send. . .That is God shall suffer them to be deceived by lying wonders, and false miracles, in punishment of their not entertaining the love of truth.
Ver. 11. 'God sends.' God will allow their willful rejection of truth to have its natural results of spiritual blindness, impenitence and damnation. A misleading influence, or, “a delusion.” The operation of error - the Greek reads: "energian planes" or literally the energy of delusion, which is exactly and actually the fallen spirits of the devils and demons conjured by pagan religion, especially by idolatry. NOW, currently, the Assisi delusion of the Apostates, Ratzinger and Wojtyla and many others present with them, is a very real and prime example. To give oneself over to this is to invite utter and complete damnation of oneself by God.
2:12 That all may be judged who have not believed the truth but have consented to iniquity.

2:13 But we ought to give thanks to God always for you, brethren, beloved of God, for that God hath chosen you firstfruits unto salvation, in sanctification of the spirit and faith of the truth:
Ver. 13. First-fruits, i.e., earliest believers in the gospel. Some manuscripts read: “from the beginning.” That is, God called them from all eternity.
2:14 Whereunto also he hath called you by our gospel, unto the purchasing of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

2:15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast: and hold the teachings, which you have learned, whether by word or by our epistle.
Ver. 15. Teachings, i.e., his teachings whether given orally or in writing. Concerning Apostolic teaching – the oral is included in the written at the point we have the whole New Testament complete, i.e. with the completion of St. John’s Gospel.
2:16 Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God and our Father, who hath loved us and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope in grace,

2:17 Exhort your hearts and confirm you in every good work and word.

Gangstalkers protect child murderer/molestors: Antipope John Paul ii Great Deceiver and Bishop Brom

None: Left and Right from the Zionist middle in Intelligence Workings

Earlier this week (January 7th, 2013), USA Superior Court Judge Emilie H. Elias ordered the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles, California to release 30,000 pages of classified Catholic files that name some high-ranking Church officials. The documents relate to Vatican priests accused of molesting children, and were used to help more than 550 plaintiffs settle with the archdiocese in 2007 for a record-breaking $US660 million. At that time, the files associated with the cases were ordered to be released to the public, but the Vatican argued for a process to firstly edit some personnel files before their release. Attorneys for the archdiocese wanted the names of Church hierarchs recorded in the documents to be blacked out, as was permitted by a 2010 order by Judge Dickran Tevrizian, who said he feared that releasing the names may be used to ‘embarrass or ridicule the Church’. In December 2012, the ‘Associated Press’ and the ‘Los Angeles Times’ intervened in the case and argued in court papers that the heavy redactions of the sort proposed by the Church would prevent the public from learning which top Vatican officials knew about the plague of pedophile priests, and their involvement in the cover-up of the scandal. Attorneys for the media’s challenge contended that the Vatican’s secrecy concerns were motivated by ‘a desire to avoid further embarrassment’ for the Church, rather than the privacy worries of the people named in the documents, as was claimed by the Church.
Rumors that Pope John Paul II is named in the files
Victims’ association, ‘Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests’ (SNAP) has welcomed Judge Elias’s decision, stating: ‘We’re thrilled and grateful that a California judge is refusing to protect corrupt Catholic officials by keeping long-secret and long-promised church abuse records hidden any longer’. It is believed that the names revealed in the documents range from priests at local churches, various bishops and cardinals, Pope John Paul II, and then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI today) who, since 2001 oversaw clerical sex abuse cases for the Vatican. As is now being revealed by the international media, the priesthood culture that operated under Pope John Paul II covered up the most grievous crimes and sins of child sex abuse, and many perpetrators were shielded by John Paul II himself, one example being the late Fr. Marcial Maciel Degollado, a Mexican pedophile priest who founded the Legionaries of Christ.
Something people should know about Pope John Paul II
Little does the public know that secret cash settlements to victims started shortly after John Paul II assumed the papal chair, and skyrocketed during his long pontificate. Nor do they know that dozens of known abuser priests took refuge in ministries in Third World countries with the blessing of both Pope John Paul II and his successor, Pope Benedict XVI. Under the papacy of John Paul II, the Catholic Church was revealed to be, and still is, a cesspool of pedophiles and pederasts priests. In October, 1992, and with the knowledge of John Paul II, the Fall River diocese secretly settled claims with 68 victims of notorious Catholic pedophile priest, Father James Porter (1935-2005), a convicted child sex molester and rapist, without disclosing the financial amounts involved. Another 31 lawsuits were settled later, again without disclosure of the sums of money involved, but a Vatican insider with connections to the IOR (Vatican Bank) told a Vatileaks representative that the secret settlements exceeded $US350 million.
Calling popes to accountability
Pope John Paul II went to his grave refusing to meet with victims of Church sex crimes and never voiced any apologies or regrets regarding his priesthood’s sexual abuse of minors or the Church of Rome’s premeditated cover-ups of hundreds of thousands of offenses. His stubborn refusals to demand the resignation of cardinals and bishops who aided, abetted, and suppressed the crimes are testimony to his callous indifference towards victims. Little did he realize that after his death, both he and Pope Benedict XVI would be revealed as the two major architects of the cover-up of the massive extent of priesthood sex scandals in the Catholic Church all over the world.
The Hague and a central secret
The institutionalized nature of Catholicism’s rampant criminal activity reveals the true nature of not only Pope John Paul II, but also the full Vatican bureaucracy that supports and encourages people with pedophilic persuasions into its priesthood and then systematically and knowingly conceals their felonies when the true motives of many priests are publicly exposed. The imminent release of this enormous collection of incriminating files may reveal a central Vatican secret about Pope John Paul II and assist the case currently in the International Criminal Court in The Hague to try Pope Benedict XVI and three cardinals for ‘crimes against humanity’. The release of the names in the confidential documents that the Vatican has aggressively tried to suppress for the last five years might help uncover the extent of a corrupt Vatican bureaucracy that has left the faith of many Catholic communities in tatters.

Will the Real Newpope Please Stand Up?
Francis-Bergoglio and Ratzinger Were Dressed Identically
In White Zuchetto and Cassock
Bergoglio Bowed down to Benedict-Ratzinger
As if to Kiss His (Non-existent) Newpapal Ring
Bergoglio Still Doesn't Seem to Think He Is Newpope!

It took him ten days to get around to it, but Francis-Bergoglio finally flew by helicopter on March 23, 2013, to the Papal Castle at Gandolfo to see Ex-Newpope Ratzinger. Bergoglio was scheduled to see Ratzinger on the day after his election, but, without explanation, Bergoglio pushed Ratzinger aside for a week and a half while Bergoglio played "Mr. Humility" around Newvatican.

The meeting was eerie, with both men dressed identically in white zuchetto and cassock, so that one would not know which one was supposed to be the actual Newpope. Bergoglio, who still doesn't seem to that he is Newpope, bent down to kiss Ratzinger's ring, then realized that Ratzinger no longer had the Newpapal ring!

What the two talked about is unknown, but it's a good bet that the 300-page "Red Dossier," prepared by the investigatory commission of three Newcardinals on corruption in Ratzinger's Newpapacy was at the top of the list. It was so embarrassing to Ratzinger that the Newcardinals who elected his successor have been forbidden to see it. Only Bergoglio is now privy to it.

Since Castel Gandolfo is reserved to the pope, one wonders what Ratzinger is still even doing there after his successor was elected. Ratzinger is waited on hand and foot there by a staff of two secretaries and four handmaids, all the while being guarded by Newvatican police officers so that he cannot be arrested and carried off to the International Criminal Court on charges for "crimes against humanity," to wit, aiding and abetting rape and sodomy of tens of thousands of children by his Newchurch clergy. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the BBC.]

A Modern-World Crusade

Nikolai MALISHEVSKI | 30.07.2012 | 00:00

The pivotal event in modern history took place in Vatican City three decades ago, on June 7, 1982, when US president R. Reagan – notably, the son of an Irishman who was a devout Roman Catholic – met with Pope John Paul II, born in Poland as Karol Józef Wojtyła. The conversation which took slightly under an hour revolved around Poland and the Soviet domination of East Europe. At the bottom line, the US President and the Pope reached an agreement “to undertake a clandestine campaign to hasten the dissolution of the communist empire”. "This was one of the great secret alliances of all time", says Reagan's first National Security Adviser Richard Allen.

To confirm allegiance to the alliance, the next day President Reagan announced a “crusade” against “the evil empire” in a programmatic speech which he delivered in London. His next symbolic step was to designate 1983 as the Year of the Bible during the annual National Prayer Breakfast. Evidently in response, John Paul II soon hosted 200 members of the Trilateral Commission - nearly the entire top parapolitical group – in Vatican. Overall, the crusade thus launched was conceived as a remake of the 1147 anti-Slavic one blessed by Pope Eugene III.

Poland became the country central to the intrigue. Reagan and Pope John Paul II shared the view that, by massively backing the Solidarity movement which was outlawed in Poland at the time, the US and Vatican would in concert be able to bring down the Polish government and to tear the country out of the Soviet bloc. An extensive network was built in Poland to prop up Solidarity, and resources from the CIA, the National Endowment for Democracy, and the Vatican's secret funds started flowing into the hands of the Polish opposition. On the US side, key roles in the campaign were taken by CIA director W. Casey and former Supreme Allied Commander Europe A. Haig. Both were known to be the Knights of Malta, plus the brother of the latter was a high-ranking Jesuit. 

In fact, a strategic deal between the US and the Vatican's intelligence agencies was cut by their chiefs W. Casey and Luigi Poggi weeks before R. Reagan, who largely owed his victory in the presidential race to the Roman Catholic part of the constituency, was sworn in. Starting late in 1980, contacts over Poland were maintained by Z. Brzeziński and Vatican's propaganda department head Cardibnal Jozef Tomko. The latter used to chair Sodalitium Pianum, the Vatican counter-espionage service, until John Paul II bracketed both agencies within one and appointed Luigi Poggi as its chief.

The Roman Catholic church and Western trade unions, American and European, supplied “grassroots leader” Lech Wałęsa and other solidarity activists with strategic guidance in line with the plans shared by Vatican and R. Reagan's Administration. Wałęsa, a leader emerging from complete obscurity at the time, actually had a record of just several months of employment as an electrician at the Gdansk shipyard, but that proved enough to create for him a profile of workers' representative from their own ranks. Earlier, Wałęsa and his relatives held no jobs (a punishable offense in the Soviet era) and survived thanks to the material support from the Roman Catholic church. Vatican's intelligence chief personally oversaw Wałęsa's work with the assistance of Polish Jesuit priest Kazimierz Przydatek.

Przydatek's mission was to assemble a group of Polish priests capable of blending into promising opposition movements, with particular attention being given to Solidarity. On a daily basis, the priests-turned-agents compiled reports based on discussions with Polish workers and with their priesthood peers. Father Henryk Jankowski, provost of St. Bridget's church which Wałęsa attended, was among the best-informed. Przydatek convinced Wałęsa to bring Tadeusz Mazowiecki, editor-in-chief of the Roman Catholic Wiez leaflet, and Bronisław Geremek, a historian, to the Solidarity leadership. With their advent, if Western researchers can be trusted on that, Solidarity was placed under full control of the Roman Catholic church.

In addition to the reports sent by Roman Catholic priests and trade union leaders, Washington and Vatican received valuable information from the fifth column within the Polish government and defense ministry. For example, W. Jaruzelski's aide Col. R. Kukliński had been a CIA informant for 11 years.

Rep. Henry John Hyde, a member of the House Select Committee on Intelligence, later wrote: "In Poland we did all of the things that are done in countries where you want to destabilize a communist government and strengthen resistance to that. We provided the supplies and technical assistance in terms of clandestine newspapers, broadcasting, propaganda, money, organizational help and advice. And working outward from Poland, the same kind of resistance was organized in the other communist countries of Europe". According to an inquiry published by Carl Bernstein in The Times (“The Holy Alliance”), “The American embassy in Warsaw became the pivotal CIA station in the communist world and, by all accounts, the most effective. Casey stepped into the vacuum in the first days after the declaration of martial law in Poland and -- as he did in Central America -- became the principal policy architect. Meanwhile Pipes and the NSC staff began drafting proposals for sanctions”. R. Pipes, a Polish-American academic who, at a certain phase of his career, contributed analysts to the CIA, explained that "The object was to drain the Soviets and to lay blame for martial law at their doorstep …

The sanctions were coordinated with Special Operations (the CIA division in charge of covert task forces), and the first objective was to keep Solidarity alive by supplying money, communications and equipment".

When the crisis erupted in Poland, R. Reagan immediately ordered to make all pertinent intelligence reports continuously available to John Paul II. Bernstein writes that “The major decisions on funneling aid to Solidarity and responding to the Polish and Soviet governments were made by Reagan, Casey and Clark, in consultation with John Paul II... Meanwhile, in Washington a close relationship developed between Casey, Clark and Archbishop Laghi”.

"Almost everything having to do with Poland was handled outside of normal State Department channels and would go through Casey and Clark", says Robert McFarlane, who served as a deputy to both Clark and Haig and later as National Security Adviser to the President - "I knew that they were meeting with Pio Laghi, and that Pio Laghi had been to see the President”. As Laghi elaborates, “My role was primarily to facilitate meetings between Walters and the Holy Father. The Holy Father knew his people. It was a very complex situation -- how to insist on human rights, on religious freedom, and keep Solidarity alive without provoking the communist authorities further. But I told Vernon, 'Listen to the Holy Father. We have 2,000 years' experience at this”.

Details of the “experience” deserve a closer look in the context. The origin of the very term “propaganda” which stands for a combination of informational, and, occasionally, other efforts aimed at expanding influence and authority can be traced back to the Roman Catholic church. It was first used on January 6, 1622 when the Vatican instituted the first “ministry of truth” in history – a department tasked with widening the ideological influence of the Roman Catholic church. The title of the department which took to collecting intelligence data across Europe featured for the first time ever the term “propaganda”.

US Secretary of State A. Haig must have had serious reasons to say that “The Vatican's information was absolutely better and quicker than ours in every respect”. Wojciech Adamiecki, the organizer and editor of underground Solidarity newspapers, told: “The church was of primary assistance. It was half open, half secret. Open as far as humanitarian aid -- food, money, medicine, doctors' consultations held in churches, for instance -- and secret as far as supporting political activities: distributing printing machines of all kinds, giving us a place for underground meetings, organizing special demonstrations”. The CIA, by the way, repaid favors to the Vatican by passing to it surveys of intercepted phone conversations in which Latin American bishops and priests criticized the continent's pro-US cardinals.

"Our information about Poland was very well founded because the bishops were in continual contact with the Holy See and Solidarnosc," stresses Cardinal Silvestrini, the Vatican's deputy secretary of state in the epoch. Bernstein paints the picture as follows: “Inside Poland, a network of priests carried messages back and forth between the churches where many of Solidarity's leaders were in hiding. The key Administration players were all devout Roman Catholics -- CIA chief William Casey, Allen, Clark, Haig, Walters and William Wilson, Reagan's first ambassador to the Vatican”.

The fact that the above revelations are surfacing these days does not mean that the clandestine operations which ultimately resulted in what Russian president V. Putin described as “the worst geopolitical catastrophe of the XX century” – the collapse of the USSR – are a matter of the past. The crusade is rolling on, but that is a separate theme.
