Previous Title: Christ's Mass Message

As I have grown closer to God in my walk with Him, He has changed many of my views over the years, and my beliefs about how to honor the birth of His beloved Son, the LORD Jesus Christ, is one such issue.

When I understood what God was saying through His prophet Jeremiah, the traditions that I learned as a child pertaining to Christ-mas, and even other holidays, just did not have the same appeal they used to have.

Jeremiah 10:2-4 says: "Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of Heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not."

Some say that Jeremiah was referring to an actual idol statue that they worshipped back then, but if you think about it, the Christ-mas tree, and all that goes with it, is indicative of the idolatry of Jeremiah's day.

There are varying opinions as to when the actual birth of Jesus took place, and despite what the Roman Catholic Church sanctioned long ago, I Am certain that December 25th is not when Jesus was born.

I realize that many people who celebrate Christ-mas genuinely love God, and they are just commemorating the birth of Jesus, as I did for years, but after I found out that Satan had a hand in it, everything changed.

Considering that certain customs associated with Christ-mas encourage lying to little children should be a major indicator the Devil is involved; and Satan is surely the father of those who love lies and deceit!

It is no wonder that strife, envy, hatred, disappointment, and in some worst case scenarios, death and destruction accompanies this holiday; and things will only get worse as we "see the Day approaching."

I fully understand how hard it can be to let go of family traditions, but just because you have done it all your life does not make it right. And if what we have been taught to believe is rooted in evil, we must reject it!

In my view, obedience to God should be paramount, and all who name the Name of Christ, must uphold the Truth and defend His Word at all cost! Consider what God's Word literally says about the birth of Jesus.

Luke 1:26-35 "And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, to a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the LORD is with thee: blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.

And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call His name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the LORD God shall give unto Him the throne of His father David: And He shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of His kingdom there shall be no end.

Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the Power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that Holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God."

Some say that passage refers to the 6th month of Elizabeth's pregnancy with John, but if you read it just as it is written, and without speculation, that amazing declaration took place during the 6th Jewish month of Elul, and herein is a plausible scenario of Jesus' birth I hope you will consider.

On the 1st day of the 7th Jewish month, (Tishrei, late September or early October timeframe), the Shofar/Trumpet is blown during Rosh Hashanah, to signify that a momentous event is about to take place. Ten days later, according to the Scriptures, the "Day of Atonement" is commemorated, which is the Highest Holy Day on the Hebrew calendar, a.k.a. Yom Kippur.

Repentance and forgiveness is the primary focus of this very Special Day, and when the Temple in Jerusalem was still standing, it was the one day of the year that God allowed the High Priest, and only him, to go into the Holy of Holies to make atonement for his sins and the sins of the people.

I believe it was on this very Day that Jesus, the Son of the Living God, was miraculously conceived by the power of God's Spirit, "within the veil," where no eyes could see, except the "Holy Father." And He is the only One "by Whom we have now received the Atonement," for all who receive the gift of Eternal Life through Jesus Christ, His Son, whom God raised from the dead, and "Who is gone into Heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto Him."

Hebrews 4:14-16 "Seeing then that we have a great High Priest, that is passed into the Heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an High Priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need."

It is so sad to watch the devout Jewish folks praying at the Western Wall in Jerusalem (via the Kotel), knowing that most of them do not even know Jesus Christ, the only One who can truly save their souls.

So many people have yet to understand that Jesus is the True Messiah, but they will one Day. And I Am amazed at how God ensured that the very Day of Jesus' conception would be highly exalted by Jewish people without them understanding the full significance, until the "Appointed Time."

May God have mercy on His people who truly love Him, until they are able to "SEE" that it is Jesus, "In Whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace."

The Feast of Tabernacles, a.k.a. Sukkot, is the next Holy Day which takes place on 15-21 Tishrei, and I Am certain it would have been particularly joyous in Heaven, and among the very "select few" on earth, who knew that the long awaited Messiah was now in the world, albeit a tiny "seed."

It is quite fitting to celebrate Jesus' arrival into this dark and dying world during this very special time, and to highlight its importance, God requires all nations to honor these "Feast Days," or suffer the consequences.

Zechariah 14:16-19 "And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.

And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles."

One last stipulation for Jesus' birth to have happened as I have suggested, is it had to be a leap year, which is when the 13th month of Adar II is added to the Hebrew Calendar. The Festival of Purim is celebrated during the month of Adar, and during leap years certain "traditions" celebrate this Holy Day during Adar I, a.k.a. Purim Katan or "Little Purim," and some choose to celebrate Purim during the extra month of Adar II.

The Festival of Purim is a yearly commemoration of when God used a faithful young woman named Esther, along with her uncle, to help save the Jewish people from annihilation, in those "days wherein the Jews rested from their enemies;" and it would have been even more memorable for our Heavenly Father to send His Son, the Saviour of the world, during the Season when these Holy days of Purim occur twice.

Not only did God tell His "chosen people" to observe these days of Purim, and that "they should make them days of feasting and joy, and of sending portions one to another, and gifts to the poor," but according to the Scriptures (Esther 9:27-28), so were "all such as joined themselves unto them, so as it should not fail, that they would keep these two days (14 & 15 Adar), according to their writing, and according to their appointed time every year; and that these days should be remembered and kept throughout every generation, every family, every province, and every city; and that these days of Purim should not fail from among the Jews, nor the memorial of them perish from their seed." (Read the entire book of Esther to know why Purim is to be remembered by all who love the God of Israel.)

Prayerfully consider these very kind and gracious words from the One and only Saviour who can give us eternal "rest" from the burdens of this world.

Matthew 11:27-30 Jesus said, "All things are delivered unto Me of My Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and He to whomsoever the Son will reveal Him. Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I Am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is Light."

Biblical Holy Days are important to God, and considering that Purim 2010, 14 Adar 5770, marks the 17th Anniversary of a momentous event that took place in my home, makes it even more significant to me.

Seventeen years ago, on 28 February 1993, "the LORD actually came down by His Spirit into my living room... The Holy Spirit manifested in a person and spoke. And that person actually happened to be me. And I hate toI don't hate to say me, but for some reason it's almost like I Am boasting if I claim that the LORD actually spoke through me. But He did... [And] He spoke in a very mighty way..."

The above statements are from my Testimony that was broadcast over the airwaves of a "Christian" radio station, on 20 April 1993, the day after the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas went up in flames.

The guest speaker was the late Dr. David Breese, and at his request I called him after the show. He was very intrigued by my comments and said "the LORD may be able to use my experience as a ministry for others."

However, at the time I did not realize that the LORD would have me develop a book that would explain exactly how I was able to be deceived into thinking that I was walking with followers of the LORD Jesus Christ, when in Truth, I was "Walking With The Enemy!"

God knew where I was, and He is the One who has given me His message that I have been proclaiming ever since. Please prayerfully consider this Word from the LORD Jesus, the embodiment of fulfilled Prophecy!

The Prophesy of

28 February 1993 / 8 Adar 5753

"Many things you have been taught here has been done in secrecy and in Darkness. You have been taught truth mixed with lies, and the LORD says it will go on no longer!

And you, Bill, are the one who has taught the lies, and the LORD says it will go on no longer in this home.

The LORD is giving you a chance to turn from your sin, and He is so forgiving that He will not hold your sin against you if you repent. And if you do not you will die!

He is my Husband, and I love Him with a love that cannot be broken. I love you too, but with a brotherly love. And I beg you to repent!

Everything you have learned here has been tainted with evil, and you cannot hold on to any of it. The only thing that you can hold on to is the fact that Jesus Christ died for you, and by His mighty power, God raised Him from the dead.

If you believe that in your heart, and claim Him as LORD, He will put the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead inside of you, to lead you and guide you into the Truth!

Light will overshadow Darkness, and Darkness will not be able to stand in the presence of God!"

So, if my calculations are correct, the final waiting period for the coming of the Messiah of Israel would have been during the Counting of the Omer, which "counting" begins the day after the Feast of Passover, and ends fifty days later on 6 Sivan, during the Feast of Pentecost a.k.a. Shavuot.

Thus, it was on the Holy Day of Pentecost that God's Son was born into this world, and I have never heard Jesus' birth portrayed in such a way, but it fits perfectly! And knowing that Almighty God gave Moses the Ten Commandments at Mount Sinai during the 3rd Jewish month of Sivan, (May/June timeframe), makes the timing of the birth of "the only begotten Son of God," even more profound.

Pentecost is not only a "Holy Day" for faithful Jews, but also for Christians as well, because it was at Pentecost that God sent the Holy Spirit soon after the LORD Jesus had "ascended up to Heaven in a cloud."

Acts 2:1-4 "And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance."

Acts 2:16-21 "But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; (Joel 2:28) And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of My Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

And on My servants and on My handmaidens I will pour out in those days of My Spirit; and they shall prophesy: And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the LORD come: And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be saved."

The Holy Scriptures never indicated that Jesus was born on 25 December, but it is just a "tradition of men" that was handed down through the ages by "religious leaders," fomented by the Power of Rome.

Irrespective of the exact Day that Almighty God sent His "True Light" into this Dark and dying world, all who are redeemed by the blood of the Lamb, should proclaim every day of the year: "Glory to God in the Highest, and on earth Peace, good will toward men!" Amen!

"John the Baptist's" mission was to prepare God's people for the coming of the Messiah, and that message is still the same when he said, "I Am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, make straight the way of the LORD... Repent ye: for the kingdom of Heaven is at hand."

Only through genuine repentance that is granted by God, can we know how depraved we really are without the LORD, and only those who are truly forgiven by God, can have "eyes to see" the Truth about His Son.

John gave his life in service to the LORD, until he was brutally murdered; and based on my Timeline of events, he is the one who would have been born in the winter at the Feast of Dedication / Festival of Lights, a.k.a. Hanukah, during the 9th Jewish month of Kislev (December timeframe).

God's plans were made before the "foundations of the earth" were laid, and the debates about the birth of Jesus Christ, will no doubt continue, but without controversy had Emmanuel, the Messiah, never been born, mankind would be without hope, and "without God," in this world!

Ephesians 2:11-13 "Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; that at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ."

There is absolutely no doubt as to when Jesus was crucified, since God's Word clearly reveals that He died during Passover. Jesus even asked His disciples to remember His great sacrifice when they eat the Passover meal, but most "Christians" do not even know to commemorate this Holy Day.

I Corinthians 11:23-27 "For I have received of the LORD that which also I delivered unto you, That the LORD Jesus the same night in which He was betrayed took bread: and when He had given thanks, He brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is My body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of Me. After the same manner also He took the cup, when He had supped, saying, This cup is the New Testament in My blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of Me.

For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, [of Passover] ye do shew the LORD'S death till He come. Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the LORD unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the LORD."

Remembrance of the "Resurrection of Christ" is contingent upon His death, not on the first day of the week, or the timing of the moon, and since "The Church" has replaced it with a holiday of their own making they have made "the word of God of none effect" through their traditions.

The Catholic Church espouses many teachings contrary to the Scriptures, and it has affected all of Christendom! Sadly, Christians blindly follow doctrines setup by Rome even though they defy God's Word!

Not only does the Roman Church exalt their beliefs and traditions above the Word of God, but they have shunned the observance of Biblical Holy days from the beginning, unto this day. "The Church" has even cursed those who kept them; and in the past, sanctioned the persecution and murder of those who did not comply with their edicts and commands!

As revealed in this article, the Holy Days that God has directed His people to remember have great eternal significance, and they all center around Jesus Christ, the Messiah. Satan knows this, which is why the Wicked One has tried so hard to devalue, defile, or diminish God's Word altogether.

Christ-mas is known to be the celebration of the birth of God's Son Jesus, but if you delve into its origin and examine the true meaning of the word, it paints a completely different picture than what has been taught.

Please consider the actual meaning of this holiday called "Christ-mas," which originated as a contraction of "Christ's mass," sanctioned by the Roman Catholic Church; and this is a breakdown of what it literally means.

Christ, Jesus, the Anointed One, is the Messiah of Israel, as was foretold by the Holy prophets, and confirmed by the New Covenant with His blood.

Mass, is the ceremony whereby a "duly ordained Roman Catholic priest" offers an "un-bloody sacrifice of Christ," in celebration of the Eucharist.

"The word Mass (missa) first established itself as the general designation for the Eucharistic Sacrifice in the West after the time of Pope Gregory the Great,... Before it became the technical name of the holy Liturgy in the Roman Rite, it meant simply 'dismissal'." ("Mass" also comes from the Latin, feminine past participle of mittere, which means to "send away, dismiss.")

Eucharist, is one of the seven sacraments, of the Roman Catholic Church that they require for "salvation." According to "the Church," when a priest consecrates the bread and wine in the Eucharist, they cease to be bread and wine, and they claim it becomes the actual body and blood of Christ.

This "mysterious change" is known as "transubstantiation;" and according to the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, only "a validly ordained priest (either bishop or presbyter), acting as a representative of Christ," is authorized to "celebrate the rite and consecrate the Eucharist."

Worth noting, the Catholic Church does not consider the "Eucharist" of the Protestant churches to be valid, since they regard those who broke away from "the Roman Church," as rebellious children that need to fall back under the sole authority of the Bishop of Rome--the Pope, which so many are being led to do in these Final Days, in fulfillment of the Holy Scriptures.

The Devil takes such great pleasure in hearing people innocently proclaim, "Merry Christ-mas," as he knows the secret meaning of that declaration. People really need to know and understand that Roman Catholicism is the "usurper" of true Christianity, and all who venerate the Roman Pontiff, the Pope, as the "Vicar of Christ," must deny Jesus, and the Gospel, to do so!

The evidence I Am presenting against the Roman Catholic Church is from their own "Catechism of the Catholic Church" and "Code of Canon Law," and I hope you will seriously consider these official Vatican documents. And please note the emphasis is mine.

"Catechism of the Catholic Church"

and "Code of Canon Law"

"1128 This is the meaning of the Church's affirmation49 that the sacraments act ex opere operato (literally: 'by the very fact of the action's being performed'), i.e., by virtue of the saving work of Christ, accomplished once for all. It follows that 'the sacrament is not wrought by the righteousness of either the celebrant or the recipient, but by the power of God'50 From the moment that a sacrament is celebrated in accordance with the intention of the Church, the power of Christ and his Spirit acts in and through it, independently of the personal holiness of the minister. Nevertheless, the fruits of the sacraments also depend on the disposition of the one who receives them.

1129 The Church affirms that for believers the sacraments of the New Covenant are necessary for salvation.51"

According to the Catholic Church their Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Confession, and other "sacraments" are "necessary for salvation," and regardless of the "personal holiness of the minister," under the rules of Canon Law, "Can. 900 §1. The minister who is able to confect the sacrament of the Eucharist (consecrate the bread and the wine so that they become the Body and Blood of the Lord) in the person of Christ is a validly ordained priest alone."

Apparently the sins of abusive priests that the Roman hierarchy chose to shelter by moving them from parish to parish after their wicked deeds became too public, does not affect their "ministering" of the "sacraments," but the recipients "disposition" affects how they receive "the sacraments."

What absolute hypocrisy! The Roman Catholic Church is guilty of covering over the wickedness of its leaders rather than exposing and punishing their evil deeds, and for "special" high profile cases, they are moved to the "safety" of the Vatican in Rome, where they are immune from the Law!

They may hide now, but God will have the final word, and woe be unto "ravening wolves in sheep's clothing" who prey upon innocent souls who love Him. God has the "blackness of Darkness" reserved for them!

"For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in My name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward. And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in Me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea." Mark 9:41-42

I used to believe Catholicism is just another denomination of Christianity, like most people, but I see that I have been very wrong in that belief. Having been raised in the Catholic Church, I actually have good memories of my time in Catholic grade school, and going to Mass every day, and singing in the choir. And when my family quit going to the Catholic Church over twenty three years ago, it was not because I saw the great evil of the Roman Church--its just that it was getting too hard, with three little girls under four years of age, to go to Mass and go to the Baptist Church.

My Husband and I decided to only attend the Church that He grew up in, and when I told the priest about our decision, he was really taken aback, but I believe he sensed my sincerity, and didn't try to talk me out of it.

One thing I must mention, that as a child growing up as a Roman Catholic, it really bothered me when people would accuse me of worshipping Mary. And even though I never did, I have since discovered that the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church does indeed advocate the idolatrous practice of "worshipping" Mary; and I hope you will agree with me after you examine excerpts from the official documents noted below.

From the "Code of Canon Law"

 and the "Catechism of the Catholic Church."

"III MARY - ESCHATOLOGICAL ICON OF THE CHURCH...

721...Mary, the all-holy ever-virgin Mother of God, is the masterwork of the mission of the Son and the Spirit in the fullness of time...

722...She was, by sheer grace, conceived without sin as the most humble of creatures, the most capable of welcoming the inexpressible gift of the Almighty.

773...Mary goes before us all in the holiness that is the Church's mystery as 'the bride without spot or wrinkle.'194 This is why the 'Marian' dimension of the Church precedes the 'Petrine.'195

2146 The second commandment forbids the abuse of God's name, i.e., every improper use of the names of God, Jesus Christ, but also of the Virgin Mary and all the saints.

2679 Mary is the perfect Orans (pray-er), a figure of the Church. When we pray to her, we are adhering with her to the plan of the Father, who sends his Son to save all men. Like the beloved disciple we welcome Jesus' mother into our homes,39 for she has become the mother of all the living. We can pray with and to her. The prayer of the Church is sustained by the prayer of Mary and united with it in hope.

2677...By asking Mary to pray for us, we acknowledge ourselves to be poor sinners and we address ourselves to the 'Mother of Mercy,' the All-Holy One. We give ourselves over to her now, in the Today of our lives. And our trust broadens further, already at the present moment, to surrender 'the hour of our death' wholly to her care.

2682...May our most gracious God grant this through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of the Church, her spouse St. Joseph, Patron of the Church, and Saints Peter and Paul.

969...Taken up to heaven she did not lay aside this saving office but by her manifold intercession continues to bring us the gifts of eternal salvation....Therefore the Blessed Virgin is invoked in the Church under the titles of 'Advocate, Helper, Benefactress, and Mediatrix.'510

144 To obey (from the Latin ob-audire, to 'hear or listen to') in faith is to submit freely to the word that has been heard, because its truth is guaranteed by God, who is Truth itself. Abraham is the model of such obedience offered us by Sacred Scripture. The Virgin Mary is its most perfect embodiment.

966 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,"

According to the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church:

The Catholic Mary is the Icon/Idol of "the Church" in these Final Days.

The Catholic Mary the "all-holy ever-virgin Mother of God."

The Catholic Mary was "pure from all personal sin throughout her life."

The Catholic Mary is exalted above the Apostles of Christ.

The Catholic Mary "goes before" the Church.

The Catholic Mary was conceived without sin.

The Catholic Mary is one they pray to.

The Catholic Mary is who they surrender their lives to.

The Catholic Mary brings the "gifts of eternal salvation."

The Catholic Mary is put on the same level as God.

The Catholic Mary is perfect and her name is to be honored.

The Catholic Mary is the Queen of Heaven.

The Catholic Mary is a "god" of the "Church" and is to be worshipped!

The Catholic Mary is the "bride without spot or wrinkle."

The Catholic Mary has taken the place of Christ!

The Catholic Mary is worshipped by the "Vicar of Christ," the Pope!

The official doctrine of the Roman Pontiff / the Pope,

and hierarchy of the Catholic Church.

 

From the "Code of Canon Law"

and "Catechism of the Catholic Church."

"882 ...'For the Roman Pontiff, by reason of his office as Vicar of Christ, and as pastor of the entire Church has full, supreme, and universal power over the whole Church, a power which he can always exercise unhindered.'403

883 'The college or body of bishops has no authority unless united with the Roman Pontiff, Peter's successor, as its head.' As such, this college has 'supreme and full authority over the universal Church; but this power cannot be exercised without the agreement of the Roman Pontiff.'404

884 'The college of bishops exercises power over the universal Church in a solemn manner in an ecumenical council.'405 But 'there never is an ecumenical council which is not confirmed or at least recognized as such by Peter's successor.'406

891 'The Roman Pontiff, head of the college of bishops, enjoys this infallibility in virtue of his office...The infallibility promised to the Church is also present in the body of bishops when, together with Peter's successor, they exercise the supreme Magisterium,' above all in an Ecumenical Council.418 ...This infallibility extends as far as the deposit of divine Revelation itself.421

THE SUPREME AUTHORITY OF THE CHURCH (Cann. 330 - 367)

Can. 330 ...the Roman Pontiff, the successor of Peter, and the bishops, the successors of the Apostles, are united among themselves.

Art. 1. THE ROMAN PONTIFF

Can. 331 The bishop of the Roman Church...is the head of the college of bishops, the Vicar of Christ, and the pastor of the universal Church on earth. By virtue of his office he possesses supreme, full, immediate, and universal ordinary power in the Church, which he is always able to exercise freely.

Can. 333 §1. By virtue of his office, the Roman Pontiff not only possesses power offer (over) the universal Church but also obtains the primacy of ordinary power offer all particular churches and groups of them...

§3. No appeal or recourse is permitted against a sentence or decree of the Roman Pontiff.

Can. 334 Bishops assist the Roman Pontiff in exercising his office... The cardinals also assist him, as do other persons and various institutes according to the needs of the times. In his name and by his authority, all these persons and institutes fulfill the function entrusted to them for the good of all the churches, according to the norms defined by law.

Can. 335 When the Roman See is vacant or entirely impeded, nothing is to be altered in the governance of the universal Church...

 Art. 2. THE COLLEGE OF BISHOPS

Can. 336 The college of bishops, whose head is the Supreme Pontiff and whose members are bishops by virtue of sacramental consecration and hierarchical communion with the head and members of the college and in which the apostolic body continues, together with its head and never without this head, is also the subject of supreme and full power offer (over) the universal Church.

Can. 337 §1. The college of bishops exercises power offer (over) the universal Church in a solemn manner in an ecumenical council...

§3. It is for the Roman Pontiff, according to the needs of the Church, to select and promote the ways by which the college of bishops is to exercise its function collegially regarding the universal Church.

Can. 338 §1. It is for the Roman Pontiff alone to convoke an ecumenical council, preside offer it personally or through others, transfer, suspend, or dissolve a council, and to approve its decrees.

§2. It is for the Roman Pontiff to determine the matters to be treated in a council and establish the order to be observed in a council. To the questions proposed by the Roman Pontiff, the council fathers can add others which are to be approved by the Roman Pontiff.

Can. 339 §1. All the bishops and only the bishops who are members of the college of bishops have the right and duty to take part in an ecumenical council with a deliberative vote.

§2. Moreover, some others who are not bishops can be called to an ecumenical council by the supreme authority of the Church, to whom it belongs to determine their roles in the council.

Can. 340 If the Apostolic See becomes vacant during the celebration of a council, the council is interrupted by the law itself until the new Supreme Pontiff orders it to be continued or dissolves it.

Can. 341 §1. The decrees of an ecumenical council do not have obligatory force unless they have been approved by the Roman Pontiff together with the council fathers, confirmed by him, and promulgated at his order."

According to the official teachings of the Roman Catholic Church:

The Pope is Peter's successor.

The Pope is infallible by virtue of his office.

The Pope is the Vicar or substitute for Christ on this earth.

The Pope has full, supreme, and universal power over the whole Church.

The Pope has full power and authority over all ecumenical councils.

The Pope must approve all decrees of the ecumenical council.

The Pope has full authority over the college of bishops.

The Pope has the final word with no appeal process whatsoever.

The Pope seeks to have power over all men everywhere in all churches.

The Roman Catholic hierarchy is guilty of usurping the power and authority that exclusively belongs to Jesus Christ, and they are guilty of using God's name in vain in order to advance their hidden agenda. And all who remain a part of this corrupt entity, or have willingly supported or joined with the Roman Catholic Church have become a partaker of their evil deeds!

2 Corinthians 6:14-18 "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath Light with Darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols?

For ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the LORD, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be My sons and daughters, saith the LORD Almighty."

A true Christian would never advocate or celebrate Christ's Mass dismissal from its churches and society but that is exactly what has happened! And under the cover of Darkness, through "Christ-mas," the world has been led into an all-out celebration of a false-Christ! And the "apostate churches" are leading the way to the exaltation of the "anti-Christ!"

Those who have paved the way for the acceptance of "the man of sin," include Bill McCartney of "Promise Keepers," Mel Gibson producer and director of "The Passion of the Christ," and "Pastor" Rick Warren, of the "Purpose Driven Church," who is a major supporter of "The Message" of Eugene H. Peterson, which is an extreme "per-version" of the Bible, that is accepted and promoted by many "self" proclaimed "Christians."

Woe be unto those who call themselves Christian, yet do not follow Christ! God has been "calling" out to His people for a while now, please do not ignore His Voice! You don't know when it will be the Last Time!

Malachi 4:1-6 "For, behold, the Day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the Day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.

But unto you that fear My Name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in His wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the Day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts. Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.

Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse."

I know it can be extremely disheartening if you are seeing the Truth about this for the first time, and I hope you will not just dismiss this. While I was Walking With The Enemy I believed some pretty outrageous things, but God has great compassion for those who are striving to please Him.

If you find that you are involved with an apostate church or ministry that advocates the lies of the Evil One, please "come out from among them!" It is an extremely dangerous place to be in these Final Days!

Satan may dismiss Christ for a Season, but the Final Judgment is coming, and all "workers of iniquity" will pay for the wicked deeds they have done! The LORD Shall Judge His People, and there is a "Day of Reckoning" for all who reject God's Son, and eternal punishment for those who willfully led God's people away from Him.

Revelations 19:2 "For true and righteous are His judgments: for He hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of His servants at her hand."

Men and fathers need to wake up and realize they are responsible for the despicable state of this once great Nation! And according to God's Word, it will only get worse! If good men do nothing, evil men will fill the void, and we desperately need some men who are genuinely led by Jesus Christ, to help warn and prepare God's people for the coming Judgment!

There was a Time when the salvation of God's people was brought about due to the courageous acts of a woman, and under the threat of death was willing to appeal to the King, who by the providence of God happened to be her Husband. And if God chose a faithful woman such as Esther to help bring down the Enemy then, He may choose to use a woman that is faithfully committed to Him, "for such a Time as this!"

Addendum

to Christ's Mass Dismissal

There is a concerted effort on the part of the Roman Catholic hierarchy and its supporters to bring all "men" under the supreme authority of the Roman Pontiff--the Pope, as the universal leader of all religions. The leaders of "the Apostate Church" are bringing "the separated brethren" of the Protestant, Evangelical, and Orthodox Churches "back into the fold," through Evangelicals and Catholics Together (1994); and the appearance of "The Man...Declaration" (2009), both co-authored by Chuck Colson.

If you do a little research into the abuses of the Roman Catholic Church you will find a hierarchy that covers up the grave sins of its priests and nuns, who commit horrible acts against those entrusted to their care. And considering how the leadership of the Roman Catholic Church has failed miserably to protect those born and raised in that religious system, their advocacy for the rights of the "unborn" is just a mockery!

And after the recent revelations of the unspeakable crimes of the Catholic "Christian Brothers" and "Sisters of Mercy," in Ireland, it's no wonder there has always been a mass exodus of its youth when given the choice.

A "dark" shadow has been cast over the Pope, who is the Bishop of Rome, and sordid details continue to be uncovered about the Roman Church, so please do not be taken in by evil men who claim to be "Christian" leaders, yet they do not follow "the Author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the Throne of God."

Matthew 18:2-7 "And Jesus called a little child unto Him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in My Name receiveth Me.

But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in Me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

Woe unto the world because of offences! For it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!"
