What are the beasts in the book of revelation? What is the mark of the Beast? Who is AntiChrist? These are all questions that many scholars have contemplated throughout the ages. Within the Christian world there are many different personal beliefs and interpretations to what the book of Revelation actually foretells. Confusion surrounds these scriptures because everyone wants to tell you there personal opinions about it. Sadly this is where most go wrong in the fact that they are listening to someone else's interpretation to what they think scripture in Revelation should mean. Each person has a different opinion and interpretation to what it should mean. Therefore each person says something different.. So who can you trust?  Here is a Example..

Revelation 17:1 "And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters"

The great whore sits upon many waters... What does this mean? I honestly want you to stop here and try to think for yourself what this should mean before continuing reading..

One person may say "the many waters means that the whore is sitting on many different oceans"

Another person may say "many waters is just saying the whore is sitting on unlevel or rough ground"

This is what leads people to confusion.. They ask everyone around them what it means.. but they don't ask the One who wrote it..

To define what "many waters" means you don't need to go to a bible seminar or ask some bible scholar. All the answers to these questions are in your Bible.. You need let the Bible define and interpret the Bible..

Revelation 17:15 ''and he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues"

The definition to "Many Waters" was found just 14 verses later in the same chapter but that's not always the case. Sometimes we may have to study a little harder to find the answer. God has given you answers to Revelation. So when you read a verse in Revelation instead of comparing your own or someone else's ideas and beliefs to what they think that verse should mean. You should only compare the verse to another verse in the Bible. Therefore the Bible is intrepting the Bible. One perfect verse will explain another. You can go over every verse in Revelation and compare them all to other scripture so to give you the understanding. So then your not listening to me or any mans opinion or interpretation on a single verse but rather building faith based on scripture explaining scripture.Before finding out what the Mark of the beast is.. you must first know who the beast is.. 

So let's start by taking the main characteristics of the beast and use scripture to define them.

Revelation 17:3  "So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns."

John saw a women.. riding a beast.. with seven heads.. Let's let the Bible tell us what these 3 things are..

1. Woman

2. Beast

3. Seven Heads

So what is a woman in prophecy?

Jeremiah 6:2 "I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate woman."

The Bible clearly says a church is a Woman. Thats why throughout the scripture Christ calls Himself the Bridegroom.

Luke 5:34-35  "And he said unto them, Can ye make the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them?But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days."

2 Corinthians 11:2 "For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ."

Christ's church is considered a women or a bride to Him because we are espoused to Him. Thats why when the Bridegroom-Christ returns to receive His church.

Revelation 19:7 "Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and His wife hath made herself ready."

So now we understsand that a Woman = Church

Now for number two. What is a beast?

The prophet Daniel had the same symbolism in his visions and actually spoke of the same Beast as John does in Revelation. What does Daniel say this same beast is?

Daniel 7:23 "Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces."

So now we understand a Beast = Kingdom or what we call today "nations." And it goes on to say this kingdom shall be diverse from all other kingdoms. We still to this day see this same type of symbolism when refering to a nation as a beast. The bear is Russia, bald eagle is USA, dragon is China, so on and so forth.. so this isn't something new.. we have always looked at kingdoms and compared them to animals.

So now for number three the seven Heads

Revelation 17:9  "And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth."

Mountains was translated from the word Oros.

Strong concordance  #3735 Oros [or'os] AV - mountain 41, Mount 21, Hill 3;65

The wrord "mountain" in Strongs concordance is also know as a Hill.

Seven heads are seven Hills with in this nation.

Bringing this all together God has told us that

1.Woman = Church

2. Beast    = Kingdom

3. Seven Heads = Seven hills

So lets reread the verse we read earlier.

Revelation 17:3  "So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns."

So now we know there is a Church that sits on a kingdom that has seven hills.. Now do you see how letting the Bible define the Bible works to cancel out all confusion, guessing , personal interpretations, assusptions, ect?

Where in the world do we see a church that is on a nation that is on seven hills? Daniel also said the nation is diverse from all other nations. So there cant be any other like it. Before we start pointing fingers lets continue to define more of Revelation.

Revelation 17:1 "And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters"

So we read this earlier.. here the angel says the "great whore" sits upon many "Waters". The angel calls it a Whore.. this will be define later on but for now lets focus on what "waters" means. The angel describes a bad church on many waters. Again the Bible defines the Bible.

Revelation 17:15 ''and he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues"

So this church is a diverse nation on top of seven hills and it's also surrounded by a bunch of different ethnicities. We are starting to build a profile on who this church and nation are, with out once stating a personal opinion. Do you have a guess at this point? If so.. hold that thought.

Revelation 17:5 "And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth."

So this church is the mother of all bad churches.. Continuing on..

Revelation 13:18  "Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."

Notice 666 is the number of a man's name ... We are told to find a man that has a name that equals 666. Let's bring all of the information we have together..


1. Woman = Church - Jeremiah 6:2, 2 corinthians 11:2

2.  Beast = Kingdom - Daniel 7:23

3. Seven Heads = Seven Hills - Revelation 17:9

4. it's mother of all churches - Revelation 17:5

5. it's diverse from all other kingdoms - Daniel 7:23

6. Surrounded by other kingdoms of different ethnicities - Revelation 17:1 Revelation 17:15

7. There is a man who will equal 666 - Revelation 13:18

Here are 7 characteristic of the beast in Revelation. There is only 1 entity in the world that matches all 7 characteristic of this prophecy with perfect 100 percent accuracy. Keep in mind this is only 7 so far out of Revelation that we have defined. We will continue to define more and more and build a stronger knowledge of the beast. So even if you don't think what your about to read is the beast in Revelation, just continue to read prophecy after prophecy and you will see it fulfilled as God planned. Listen to God.

Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

If you reject the knowledge.. God will also Reject the.. so please continue to read the whole study..

Numbers 1#, 2# and 5# = Church, Nation and diverse.

The Vatican is a nation as well as a church.. the only church and nation in the world making it diverse from all others..

#3 Does Vatican sit on seven hills?

"City of Seven Hills usually refers to Rome" -Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

 "Rome is known to be built upon seven hills" -Geography.about.com

4# The pope calls the church the mother of all churches. Of course he has 1.2 Billion followers world wide to support that claim.


6#  it will be surrounded by different ethnicty... Spain,France, germany,Poland, Romania, Greece, Egypt, Libya, Algeria surround the city on every side...

7# Who is the ruler of the Roman Catholic church? The pope.. but thats what we call him what is the actual name he goes by that is past on from pope to pope.

Vicarius Filli Dei

Just like roman letters hold a numerical value so does latin language which the Vatican use's. Can you guess what Vicarius Filli Dei equalls out to be in latin when you add it up

V  =   5

I    =  1

C  =  100

A  =   0

R  =  0

I    =  1

V/U  =  5

S  =  0


F  =  0

I    =  1

L  =  50

I    =  1

I     = 1


D  =  500

E  =  0

I    =  1


TOTAL  =  6 6 6

The popes name equals 666. These 7 ancient prophectic scriptures pinned long ago fore tell with perfect accuracy the details of the Vatican church. Let's continue to study and define Revelation. Next verse.

Revelation 17:4  "And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:"


These pictures show the exact same colors of the beast in Revelation. So why does it call the church a whore? and why does it dress in scarlet colors?

2 Corinthians 11:2 "For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ."

We are espoused to Christ.. The church commits spiriutal adultery by having relationships with other religions. The church constantly has fellowship with other religions but here is one example.

Pope John Paul II organized the first World Day of Prayer for Peace in Assisi, Italy, on October 27, 1986. In all there were 160 religious leaders spending the day together with fasting and praying to their God or gods. -- wikipedia .com

The church had fellowship with a 160 different religious leaders.. They are suppose to be espoused to Christ.  The Bible is clear..

Ephesians 5:11 ...have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

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?

We are not to have fellowship with different religions. That doesn't mean treat them badly.. it means separate yourself from them. Light doesn't have fellowship with darkness and neither should you. There is a difference between follow scripture and following pope. It is spiritual fornication because this church had commited adultery against Christ with every religion. That is why it is called the Whore and scarlette. A church and one professing faith in Christ is espoused to Christ.

Matthew 7:20-23  Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

The vatican may call Christ Lord.. they may cast out devils in His name.. they may do many wonderful works.. but at the end of the day.. Christ says depart from me.. I never knew you. Christ says this.. not me.

Revelation 13:6  And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, and His tabernacle, and them that dwell in Heaven.

What is Blasphemy? The Bible tell us

John 10:33  The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.

Mark 2:7  Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?

Does this beast blaspheme?

The priest does not only declare that the sinner is forgiven, but he really forgives him...so great is the power of the priest, that the judgments of heaven itself are subject to his decision.” The Catholic Priest, by Michael Meuller, Kreuzer Bros., 1876.

"Don't go to God for forgiveness of sins, come to me." -Pope John Paul II, LA Times, 12-12-1984

"The Pope is of so great dignity, and so exalted that he is not a mere man, but as it were God. and the vicar of God." -Ferraris Ecclesiastical dictionary

"All names which in the Scriptures are applied to Christ, by virtue of which it is established that He is over the church, all the same names are applied to the Pope." - On the Authority of the Councils, book 2, chapter 17

Matthew 24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

Christ has given us warning after warning.. Through out the scripture.. Christ says beware of wolves in sheeps clothing.. The vatican is a wolf dressed as a lamb. Please just continue to read scripture after scripture provide evidence about the beast. Back to this verse.

Revelation 17:3  "So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns."

Let's now look at "Names of blasphemy" Christ said

Matthew 23:9  "...call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven."

Yet every single Catholic preist wants you to call him father infront of his name.. No one is your spiritual father but God and God alone. This is truely is names of blasphemy. There is a difference between following God or following popes dogma. What does the Pope think of himself?

2 Thessalonians 2:4 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.

Does the pope sit in a temple of God thinking he is a god?

-These words appeared in the Roman Canon Law: "To believe that our Lord God the Pope has not the power to decree as he is decreed, is to be deemed heretical.-I?i the Gloss "Extravagantes" o.f Pope John XXII Cum inter, Tit. XIV, Cap. IV. Ad Callem Sexti Decretalium, Paris, 1685.

"The Pope and God are the same, so he has all power in Heaven and earth." Pope Pius V, quoted in Barclay, Chapter XXVII, p. 218, "Cities Petrus Bertanous".

"The pope is the supreme judge of the law of the land... He is the vicegerent (replacement) of Christ, who is not only a Priest forever, but also King of kings and Lord of lords." - La Civilia Cattolica, March 18, 1871, quoted in Leonard Woosely Bacaon, An inside view of the Vatican Council (American Tract Society ed.), p.229, n.

The last line of the 1302 ad Bull Unam Sanctam... Issued by POPE BONIFACE VIII states; we declare, we proclaim, we define that it is absolutely necessary for salvation that every human creature be subject to the Roman Pontiff. -UNAM SANCTAM (Promulgated November 18, 1302) (For a complete look at this quote, see this... http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/source/b8-unam.html or this... http://www.papalencyclicals.net/Bon08/B8unam.htm )

"This is our last lesson to you: receive it, engrave it in your minds, all of you: by God's commandment salvation is to be found nowhere but in the Church; the strong and effective instrument of salvation is none other than the Roman Pontificate." (Pope Leo XIII, Allocution for the 25th anniversary of his election, February 20, 1903; Papal Teachings: The Church, Benedictine Monks of Solesmes, St. Paul Editions, Boston, 1962, par. 653).

The next verse we are about to read is one that will only belong to the Vatican.. It's one that should give you ample amount of proof that God is perfect.

Revelation 13:5-7 "And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations."

The beast had power 42 months to make war with the saints. Now, incase you didnt know a biblical month is different from the months we use today. Please grab a pencil, paper and calculator if needed. Don't take my word on this. Do the math yourself.

Genesis 7:11  In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.

2 month 17 day it began to flood the earth.

Genesis 8:3-4  And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated. And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.

After 150 days the waters left. The ark rested on 7 month 17th day. So it started on the 2 month 17th day and ended 7th month 17th day. That is 5 months and it says that is 150 days... That means each month has 30 days in it. So 30 days equals a biblical month. So back to this verse

Revelation 13:5-7 "And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations."

So the beast made war with the saints for 42 months and a biblical month is 30 days so 30x42 = 1,260 days that this beast would make war against the saints. Alright we still are not done with this math problem just yet.

Ezekiel 4:6 "And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I have appointed thee each day for a year."

Numbers 14:34 After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise.

In prophecy each day equals a year. So 1,260 days equals 1,260 years.

So this Beast who scripture describes as the Vatican church will make war with the saints for 1,260 years exactly. This is a big prophecy because it eliminates alot of false doctrines like Obama being the beast or Hitler because no man can live 1,260 years but... a kingdom where the same leader carrys the same name throughout history can. When did this church become a church and kingdom with a military?

Vigilius… ascended the papal chair in 538 A.D. under the military protection of Belisarius.” -History of the Christian Church, Vol. 3, p. 327.

So now we know it started in 538 A.D. Lets now add 1,260 years on to this date 538 A.D. and somthing should of happened to make the beast just stop the killing of the saints. When you add 1,260 years on to 538 A.D you get

“In 1798 General Berthier made his entrance into Rome, abolished the papal government, and established a secular one.” –Encyclopedia Britannica 1941 edition.

So exactly as God said, they would make war with the saints for 1,260 years. This is evidence not only proves that the Beast really is the vatican but it also proves that God is all powerful and all knowing.. They stopped because the pope died in exile under general Berthier. Please like i said study this for yourself.  So how bad was the persecution during the 1,260 years that the papal had power?

On march 12, 2000 the pope did an open apology for the mass persucution.

Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger: "Let us pray that each one of us, looking to the Lord Jesus, meek and humble of heart, will recognize that even men of the Church, in the name of faith and morals, have sometimes used methods not in keeping with the Gospel in the solemn duty of defending the truth. "

They were not defending the truth nor what it done in the name of faith.. Christ said

John 16:2-3 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.

Just how bad was this pursucuiton for them to have no option but to publicly apologize?

“More then 300,000 suffered persecution in Spain alone, of whom 31, 912 died in the flames. Millions more were slain for their faith throughout Europe.” Quoted from “The History of the Inquisition in Spain,” by Llorente, pp. 206-208. Printed in Bible Readings for the Home, (Washington: Review & Herald Pub. Assoc., 1942) p. 221.

"On August 24, 1527, Roman Catholics in France, by prearranged plan, under Jesuit influence, murdered 70,000 Protestants within the space of two months. The Pope rejoiced when he heard the news of the successful outcome."-Western Watchman, Nov.21, 1912 (Catholic)

"For teaching faith contrary to the teaching of the Church of Rome, history records the martyrdom of more than 100 million people." -Brief Bible Readings p. 16

"That the Church of Rome has shed more innocent blood than any other institution that has ever existed among mankind, will be questioned by no Protestant who has a competent knowledge of history . . . It is impossible to form a complete conception of the multitude of her victims, and it is quite certain that no powers of imagination can adequately realize their sufferings."--W. E. H. Lecky, History of the Rise and Influence of the Spirit of Rationalism in Europe, vol. 2, p. 32, 1910 edition. (An excellent though lengthy article describing in detail the right of the Roman Catholic Church to do this, will be found in The Catholic Encyclopedia, vol. 12, p. 266.)

"There are many unquestionable cases of Protestants punished as heretics in nearly all the lands where Roman Catholics have had power, right down to the French Revolution [right down to 1798]."--G. G. Coulton, The Death-Penalty for Heresy, Medieval Studies, No. 18, 1924 edition, pp. 62 [The author was a well-known member of the French Academy and an enthusiastic champion of Catholicism].

"The church may by divine right confiscate the property of heretics, imprison their person, and condemn them to flames. In our age, the right to inflict the severest penalties, even death, belongs to the church. There is no graver offense than heresy, therefore it must be rooted out." - Public Eccliastical, Vol. 2, p.142.

"Experience teaches that there is no other remedy for the evil, but to put heretics (Protestants) to death; for the (Romish) church proceeded gradually and tried every remedy: at first she merely excommunicatied them; afterwards she added a fine; then she banished them; and finally she was constrained to put them to death." -Cardinal Bellarmine famous champion of Romanism cited by Schumucker p. 76

Throughout the scripture Christ has given us warning after warning.. be aware of wolves in sheeps clothing.. the vatican is in sheep clothing because it claims to be follows of Christ..

"The Catholic Church has persecuted ... when she thinks it is good to use physical force she will use it... Will the Catholic Church give bond that she will not persecute?... The Catholic Church gives no bonds for her ‘good behavior’." -Western Watchman, Dec. 24, 1908 (emphasis added).

Revelation 18:24  And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

The vatican has shed blood for over thousand years... by there fruits ye shall know them Christ said.. and again Christ tells everyone in the church..

Revelation 18:4  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.

Come out of that church... she does not follow Christ.. the truth is provided for you.. She has committed adultery... she has killed.. she has blasphemed.. we have only scraped the surface.. continue to read.

Revelation 17:8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

It "was" in power in 538 A.D.

It "is not" in power 1798 A.D.

"Yet is" in power today ever since the 1929 when the Lateran Treaty was signed.

On June 7, 1929, the sovereign state of Vatican City came into existence as copies of the Lateran Treaty were exchanged in Rome. quote from New York times.

 So what about the antichrist?

1 John 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

Vatican beleives and teaches that Christ was sinless because Mary was sinless...  How does that deny Christ came in the Flesh? because all humans have sinned, and this includes Mary.

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Yet they claim Mary was sinless..So Mary can not be human.. to say that Christ came from a sinless person is saying that He did not come in the flesh. Is God Christ's father? Is Mary Christ's mother? if both are not human.. how can Christ be human?

The Fathers of the Eastern tradition call the Mother of God "the All-Holy" (Panagia), and celebrate her as "free from any stain of sin, as though fashioned by the Holy Spirit and formed as a new creature".138 By the grace of God Mary remained free of every personal sin her whole life long.

 From among the descendants of Eve, God chose the Virgin Mary to be the mother of his Son. "Full of grace", Mary is "the most excellent fruit of redemption" (SC 103): from the first instant of her conception, she was totally preserved from the stain of original sin and she remained pure from all personal sin throughout her life.

Through the centuries the Church has become ever more aware that Mary, "full of grace" through God,134 was redeemed from the moment of her conception. That is what the dogma of the Immaculate Conception confesses, as Pope Pius IX proclaimed in 1854:

The most Blessed Virgin Mary was, from the first moment of her conception, by a singular grace and privilege of almighty God and by virtue of the merits of Jesus Christ, Savior of the human race, preserved immune from all stain of original sin.

"Finally the Immaculate Virgin, preserved free from all stain of original sin, when the course of her earthly life was finished, was taken up body and soul into heavenly glory, and exalted by the Lord as Queen over all things, so that she might be the more fully conformed to her Son, the Lord of lords and conqueror of sin and death. Part 1 "The profession of faith" section two, chapter 3 paragraph 6

Thus, giving her consent to God's word, Mary becomes the mother of Jesus. Espousing the divine will for salvation wholeheartedly, without a single sin to restrain her, she gave herself entirely to the person and to the work of her Son;

Mary was a woman under the law..

Galatians 4:4-5 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.

Whats does it mean that she is under the law?

Galatians 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.

She was a sinner... bound under the curse of the law because she didn't continue in all things which are written in the law to do them.. Thats why Mary said...

Luke 1:47  "And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

If she is immaculate and sinless then why does she need a Saviour? what does she need to be saved from? There is a difference between following scripture and following the vatican..

"We believe that the Holy Mother of God, the new Eve, Mother of the Church, continues in heaven to exercise her maternal role on behalf of the members of Christ" (Paul VI, CPG § 15).

The liturgical feasts dedicated to the Mother of God and Marian prayer, such as the rosary, an "epitome of the whole Gospel," express this devotion to the Virgin Mary

God did not have a mother. He was here since the beginning of time.

Revelation 22:13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

Mary was the mother of Christ's humanity not the mother of His divinity.

Luke 11:27 And it came to pass, as He spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked.

A woman in the croud yelled out blessed is your mother and what did Christ say? next verse says

Luke 11:28 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.

 Blessed are you if you hear the word of God and keep it.. The word of God tells you

Matthew 6:7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

When we pray we are not to use vain repetitions.. yet how many times do you repeat the rosary? There is a difference between scripture and vatican dogma. If you was to talk to your real mother or Father would you say a chant a hundred times to communicate or would you have a loving conversation? God doesn't want a bunch of vain repetitions and chants.


Pius IX, Ubi Primum, 1849: "For God has committed to Mary the treasury of all good things, in order that everyone may know that THROUGH HER are obtained every hope, every grace, and ALL SALVATION. For this is his will, that we obtain everything through Mary."

John Paul II, Dives in Misericordia, 1980, quoting Lumen Gentium, "In fact, by being assumed into heaven she has not laid aside the office of salvation but by the manifold intercession she continues to obtain for us the grace of eternal salvation."

-Pope John Paul II again said, "Membership in the Militia means complete dedication to the Kingdom of God and to the salvation of souls through Mary Immaculate."

As St. Irenaeus says, "Being obedient she became the cause of salvation for herself and for the whole human race.

John 14:6  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

The vatican teaches Mary is the way to heaven. Scripture after scripture and prophecy after prophecy all point and match to one church.. and prove opposite to what it teaches..

Daniel 11:37 "Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all."

Nor desire women... the vatican church has priest abstain from woman.. and also need i bring up the countless child sex abuse charges the church has against it? it's by there fruit ye shall know them.. Everyone want's to bow down and kiss the hand of the pope... Listen to what scripture says..

Revelation 22:8-9   And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things.Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.

Revelation 19:10  "And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy."

John went to fall down and worship a angel but the angel told him not to worship him, worship God. if a sinless Angel doesnt deserve worship why should we bow to a sinful human to worship him? yet everyone in the world when meeting the pope bows or bows to kiss his hand... we are to Worship God and no one else.

Luke 4:8 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

We should only bow and worship God no one else.. of course we can continue to look at verse after verse and quote after quote but for now you need to understand..What is the Mark of the Beast.. or Mark of the Vatican.

 Mark of the Beast

People who receive the mark of the beast Lose there salvation and are tossed into Hell. So ask yourself what sends people to Hell? is it mirco chips? is it bar codes or is it.... sin!  What is sin?

1 John 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

Sin is the breaking of the law of God.. this is what makes you go to Hell. This is what the war between God and satan has been about the whole time.. Will you follow God and the laws that govern His Kingdom or will you follow the devil in his lawlessness? The vatican will try to force you to Break God's law.. and what law will they force you to break?

Daniel said

Daniel 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

What are our laws as Christians? the 10 commandments.. which one refers to time? the Sabbath... Exactly what Daniel said the beast would change they did..

“Sunday is our mark of authority.…The church is above the Bible, and this transference of sabbath observance is proof of that fact.” The Catholic Record, London, Ontario, September 1, 1923.

People need to realize the commandments are still valid and still inportant..

Is it okay to kill? no..

is it okay to have other gods? of course not..

is it okay to commit adultery? nope

is it okay to steal? NO... yet ask people if its okay to break the Sabbath and youll find the one commandment that God said to REMEMBER to keep, people now say to forget.

God knew you would be taught to forget this law so He told you to Remember it.. it doesn't take but 1 sin to send you to HELL and if you continue to sin?

Hebrews 10:26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins

If you continue to choose to disobey God's commandment there is no sacrifice for your sins.. We will talk about the Sabbath more later but lets finish studying the Mark of the Vatican..

The Vatican is proud to say Yes we changed the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday..

"Protestants . . accept Sunday rather than Saturday as the day for public worship after the Catholic Church made the change . . But the Protestant mind does not seem to realize that in accepting the Bible, in observing the Sunday, they are accepting the authority of the spokesman for the church, the Pope."-Our Sunday Visitor, February 5, 1950.

If you keep Sunday Holy your follow the vatican not Christ... plain and simple. God says seventh day vatican says first day.. this is the beast claim to fame.. they changed the Sabbath. We can discuss and prove the Sabbath validity later on in the study and prove you need to keep it for now though Daniel said the beast will think to change times and laws.. they can only Think! to change times and laws because they have no power to change them...  Let's compare scripture to vatican..

"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.)

"The Pope has the power to change times, to abrogate laws, and to dispense with all things, even the precepts of Christ." "The Pope has the authority and often exercised it, to dispense with the command of Christ." Decretal, de Tranlatic Episcop. Cap. (The Pope can modify divine law.) Ferraris' Ecclesiastical Dictionary.

Deuteronomy 4:2 Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.

God says don't add unto the commandments... dont take away from the commandmants... just keep the commandments.. There is a difference between what vatican says and what the bible says... So how will this be put as mark in your forehead? Alot people over think this.. Your forehead or frontal lobe is where your decision making is done in your brain. Whether you choose to keep Sunday Holy or Choose to keep God's Sabbath Holy.

Jeremiah 3:3 Therefore the showers have been withholden, and there hath been no latter rain; and thou hadst a whore's forehead, thou refusedst to be ashamed

They didn't literally have a whore on there forehead.. but they thought like one.. The forehead is where you will think..  the free will choice to choose to obey God or choose to follow the devil.. that's what this whole war is about...The devil doesnt want to follow God or His law so he chooses to break it and wants us to do the same. The words Sign/Mark/Seal can be interchangeable. Did you know the commandments can be a Mark upon your forehead and on your hand?

Exodus 13:9 And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that the Lord's law may be in thy mouth: for with a strong hand hath the Lord brought thee out of Egypt.

Deuteronomy 6:1-8 Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments, which the Lord your God commanded to teach you, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go to possess it: That thou mightest fear the Lord thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son's son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged. Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the Lord God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey. Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.

Deuteronomy 11:18 Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes.

The word frontlets was translated from the word טוֹטָפוֹת Strong's H2903 - towphaphah if defined it can mean Mark. So literally they will be a sign on your hand and a mark between your eyes if you keep the commandments. The people of God receive a Mark, sign or seal in there forehead or in there hand if they keep the commandments.

Revelation 7:2-3 ...'And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.'

Those that serve God get a seal in there forehead..

Revelation 13:16-17 ...'And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.'

Those that serve the beast get a mark in there forehead as well.. So lets continue to talk about what God's seal is... We know what seals are today.. for instances the Presidents seal is

Name: George Washington

Rank: President

Area:  United states

We can find the same seal in Gods 4th commandment..

4th commandment..  Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

Name: The Lord

Rank: Creator

Area: Heaven and Earth

This seal is found in the 4th commandment.. the exact commandment that He says to Remember.. the exact commandment Daniel said they would think to change and the exact commandment the vatican admits to changing. So what we know is God's people are also seal in there forehead or hand by God's commandments. The mark of the vatican will be opposite of Gods. It will be forcing you to keep Sunday Holy. As you have read are the card handed to you it's about worship.

So what about all the people that have gone to the grave while being sunday keepers?

Acts 17:30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:

God won't judge them on what they don't know but as Revelation says in verse 14:18 The Loud cry will be heard. You have been given the knowledge before it has happened so that you might be saved. A lot of people think Christ changed the Sabbath. Again let's listen to what Christ says..

Matthew 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

Alot people think when Christ fulfilled His law that means to abolish it. So lets replace the word fulfill and put abolish. Christ would then be saying

Think not that i came to destroy the law.. i came not to destroy it but to abolish it.

That doesn't make much sense. That's like if i called my insurance company and said i didnt destroy my car.. but when i hit that tree going 60 i abolished it. Christ goes on to say in the next verse

Mathew 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

The mark of the beast or second coming has not been fulfilled so no one can say all was fulfilled yet but that doesn't matter because is the earth your standing on passed away? then not the smallest stroke of the pen will pass away from the law.
Genesis 2:3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

God blessed the seventh day..

Numbers 23:20 Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and he hath blessed; and I cannot reverse it.

1 Chronicles 17:27 Now therefore let it please thee to bless the house of thy servant, that it may be before thee for ever: for thou blessest, O Lord, and it shall be blessed for ever.

Once blessed it can not be reversed and it remains blessed for ever.. so there is no way possible for anyone to change the Sabbath.

The Sabbath is not for the Jews.. Christ said

Mark 2:27 And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath:

Never once did Christ say the Sabbath was made for the jews and jews only.. it was made for man. Christ is our example to follow and Christ kept the Sabbath. A lot people say; I worship God seven days a week... not just one.. The Sabbath is more than worshipping.. yes I too worship God seven days a week.. but I keep the Sabbath to honor God as the Creator of the world.. I rest on the seventh day to recognize that He rested from His work in creating me. If you keep Sunday holy your honoring the Catholic church and not God.

Romans 6:16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

It's obedience unto righteousness.

John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

If you love God you will keep His commandments.. A lot people think scripture says the Sabbath was changed.. but no scripture says that.. if I was to tell you that the law has changed and we are now allowed to drive on opposite sides of the road like all the other countries.. would you believe me?  of course not .. the government would have been posting signs up everywhere to give the people of the united states a year notice.. yet people say the Sabbath was changed while at the same time Scripture is completely silent about the changing of a commandment that was literally put in stone. Alot people use this verse

Acts 20:7 And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.

Yes, on the first day of this particular week they did come together.. but didn't they meet everyday? who said meetings where only done on Sabbath? or is it because they broke bread as some assume that they met and therfore proves the Sabbath is Sunday? the same book of Acts says

Acts 2:46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,

They broke bread daily! So breaking bread cannot prove the Sabbath is Sunday either. Still, we can know what day the Sabbath is because we know the Jews still keep it today.. they didn't beleive Christ was the Messiah so they didn't follow the catholics when they told Christians the Sabbath was changed. Keeping the Sabbath doesn't mean keeping it the way the jews kept the Sabbath. We are to keep the Sabbath the way Christ did.. visiting the poor clothing the naked and healing the sick.. To keep the Sabbath doesn't mean you have to lock yourself in a room for 24 hours.

Now, let's go into scripture and read in detail about the Death and Resurrection of our Lord.

 Luke 23:55 KJV "And the women also, which came with Him from Galilee, followed after , and beheld the sepulchre, and how His body was laid"

Now, women back then put spices and flowers on dead bodies to keep the smell down. So, by the time they got there to anoint the Lord's dead body, the sun was setting and the Sabbath was beginning .. So what did these New Testament women do that Friday? (next verse says)

Luke 23:56 KJV "they returned , and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the Sabbath day according to the commandment."

Picture this ..The sun was setting on that Friday, so they pierced Christ's heart to make sure He was dead and took Him off of the cross and put His body in the sepulchre.. by the time the women got there that followed after Him, the sun was setting. So it says they rested the Sabbath Day according to the what? Accroding to the commandment. That's why when Sunday morning came around they found what happened...

Luke 24:1-3 KJV Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them. And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre. And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord.

They got up early the next day after the Sabbath ended, which was Sunday morning because they are now allowed to work on the true Sabbath. So they were now ready to anoint the dead body that had been laying there since Friday. But when they went there they saw the stone rolled back and His body was not there.

They also called Sunday in that verse the First Day of the week back then... what day did God say to rest on? The seventh day of the week.

 Don't miss another key part here. Even almighty God rested and left His son in the tomb on Saturday. If Saturday wasn't the Sabbath then why did God Himself rest that day?
