ISSN 1442-8660

Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are happy to see you.

The Establishment this week lost a well-known spook. Alisdair Cook, propagandist and presenter of the long-running radio program "Letter from America" has retired from the BBC, (MI5 and MI6?), aged 95. In other news, the New York Police Dept. has monitored Mel Gibson's film, The Passion, for evidence of a "hate" crime. Yet the 'authorities' do nothing to "deliver us from evil" and the Enemy has us surrounded; but Christ has promised, "I will be with you, even in you, to the end of the Age".

Our first main article, "Laodicea and People's Rights," is followed by a further contribution from our friend Henry Makow who considers himself an assimilated Jew and believes in Christ's Gospel of Love. Henry writes about feminism and the new world order on his website For the full story, please follow the links in his essay and in the news items. His contribution in this issue asks "Is the Pope a Catholic?"

This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith and whosoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.

Your brother-in-Christ,

No Hijackers for 9/11

The 9/11 wars herald Jewish Redemption, and Jewish Redemption heralds the Noahide Laws. Those are a set of seven laws that, according to rabbis, apply to Gentiles. Among other things, "idolatry" is forbidden. What is idolatry? Practicing Christianity is idolatry, according to the Noahide Laws. Gentiles who stand accused of breaking those laws will appear before one Jewish judge. If found guilty, there is only one punishment: death by decapitation.

As Jews demand expansion of the 9/11 wars, they also want the Noahide Laws applied world-wide. Why? To bring peace, of course. Rav. B. Horovitz, the director of Yeshivat Dvar Yerushalayim (the Jerusalem Academy of Jewish Studies), recommends that the United Nations enforce the Noahide Laws. Will the Noahide Laws bring peace? Perhaps. There is no place more peaceful than a graveyard. Full story:

The Fifth Plague of Revelation 16

Many people believe the plagues of Revelation 16 are yet future, but most of them have been fulfilled already. Brother Branham called them a "temporary judgment" and said that the influenza pandemic that killed 20 million in 1918 was the plague of the Fifth Vial.

He also said, "God doesn't destroy anything; man destroys himself by knowledge." A letter from an on-the-spot observer of the 1918 influenza epidemic explains how, like beriberi, AIDS and Gulf War Syndrome, the Spanish flu was developed by man's wisdom contrary to God's unchanging Word.

Bill forces Shots on All Children

West Virginia homeschooling families and others were scheduled to stage two rallies today to protest a proposed bill that would require every child in the state to have a record of compulsory immunizations. The legislation, Senate Bill 439, stipulates "any parent or guardian who refuses to permit his or her child to be immunized" would face a criminal charge . . . If passed this bill will turn all West Virginian parents who choose not to vaccinate for religious reasons into criminals or force them to move to another state. . . The legislation adds hepatitis B and chickenpox vaccines to the list of mandatory shots. Full story:

Cooking the Books: US Banks are Giant Casinos

US interest rates being kept low by the Federal Reserve System (which is neither Federal nor does it have any intrinsic reserves) is to simply hide the hundreds of $Billions ($100 Billion US Dollars = $100,000,000,000) of derivative losses and the true insolvency of US banks. The moment interest rates start to run up, US banks will be left holding little paper value assets to offset their vast derivative gambling losses.

US stock markets are being manipulated to show overall value gains and "profits" to keep US banks "paper solvent." In reality, the public is being conned into thinking that US banks are still solvent because they show "gains" in their stock "paper" value. If the US markets were not manipulated, US banks would collapse overnight along with the entire US economy.

US banks are merging with each other to hide their derivative losses with "paper asset" bookkeeping that incorrectly shows they are solvent with enough "assets" to overcome their losses. In reality, this is smoke and mirror accounting, a scam worth $Trillions.

US banks—with the privately owned Federal Reserve System at the helm—have turned into giant casinos by running a Casino Economy that is splintering into vast piles of insolvent firewood. The kindling was lit in the early 1990's, but now a bonfire is raging with great plumes of red-ink smoke. Can the Fed and the Fed-controlled media keep the public from seeing that red smoke with their manipulative mirrors? If the public would just open their eyes and wake up, they would see what's really going on, so here's something to focus your eyes on: Full story:

Asian Banks dump Dollar

February 22, 2004 — "Asian central banks are quietly moving away from holding the US dollar in their foreign exchange reserves, suggesting further weakness in the value of the greenback this year. A new analysis by Lehman Brothers estimates that in the last half of last year as much as $133 billion of foreign exchange reserves in non-Japan Asia left the dollar for stronger, higher-yielding currencies such as the euro, pound and Australian dollar . . . Last week it was revealed that foreign exchange reserves held by Asian countries had reached $2 trillion, as governments over insured against a currency crisis." Full story:

Magazine acknowledges Auschwitz Gas Chamber Fraud

gas chamber

One of France's most influential and reputable magazines, L'Express, now acknowledges that "everything is false" about the Auschwitz "gas chamber" that for decades has been shown to tens of thousands of tourists yearly.

"Auschwitz: The Memory of Evil," a lengthy article by journalist and historian Eric Conan, a dedicated anti-revisionist, appeared in the January 19-25, 1995, issue, pages 54-73 (and in the January 26 international edition). L'Express is a liberal large-circulation weekly news magazine, similar in format to Time or Newsweek. Full story:

US preparing for Military Draft in Spring 2005

January 28, 2004 — The current agenda of the US federal government is to reinstate the draft in order to staff up for a protracted war on "terrorism." Pending legislation in the House and Senate (twin bills S 89 and HR 163) would time the program so the draft could begin as early as spring 2005—conveniently just after the 2004 presidential election . . . But the administration is quietly trying to get these bills passed NOW . . . The Pentagon has quietly begun a public campaign to fill all 10,350 draft board positions and 11,070 appeals board slots nationwide . . . Dodging the draft will be more difficult than those from the Vietnam era remember. College and Canada will not be options . . .

The World's First Government-Corporate War and the End of Nation-States as We know Them

March1, 2004 — The answer may shock you, but guess who the second largest military force in Iraq belongs to. If you answered Great Britain with 9,000 men, you'd be wrong, for the next highest contingency of troops are constituted by PMCs—Private Military Companies. . . The Center for Public Integrity defines a Private Military Company (PMC) as: "A Company that provides, for profit, services that services that were previously carried out by a national military force, including military training, intelligence, logistics and offensive combat, as well as security in conflict zones."

Yes, you read those words correctly. Warfare in the year 2004 is increasingly being carried out by corporate armies or mercenaries as they were called in a bygone era". Full story: WING.TV

By Way of Deception, You shall do War
(kee betachbulot ta'ase lecha milchama)

Until 2003 Zionists had been content to lord it over Christian Americans by controlling their banking and media structures, and exerting irresistible pressure on the purely ceremonial incumbent of the White House. By mid-2003 things started going to hell in a hand basket, with the US dollar crashing through the floor, and increasing numbers of reluctant American soldiers being sent to their deaths in Iraq. As each week passed, more and more middle ranking American military officers started whispering about a possible coup d’état, a rumor that caused horror on Wall Street because the bankers would be unable to stop it happening. The bankers had good reason to be horrified, because a mere one-percent of US Military firepower could easily reduce Wall Street to rubble in less than 5 minutes. Full story:

Crop Spraying: An Israeli Genocidal Strategy!

Four crop-spraying planes circling overhead have brought silent death to the fields of wheat and barley that Shaikh Salih Abu Darim and his Bedouin tribe will need to feed themselves and their goats and sheep for the year.

The Araqib tribe has farmed the land close to the city of Beer Sheva in southern Israel for generations. But in the past year the Israeli government has declared war on them and some 70,000 other Bedouin living in 45 communities it refuses to recognize in the Negev (al-Naqab). Full story:

Laodicea and People's Rights

The Seventh or Laodicean Church Age ceased to be a Move of the Spirit when Christ opened the Seven Seals in March, 1963. Yet the world remains trapped in the moribund state signified by Laodicea's pale horse, for the sole avenue of release is through the open door of new birth which the Message to Laodicea can no longer deliver.

Laodicea, which means "people's rights," was the final stage of the Reformation of the Roman Catholic system of false worship—a reaction against nicolaitanism whereby people were ruled by a clerical hierarchy—an abuse of power that led to the Dark Ages of the Thyatira Church Age in the aftermath of the perfidious First Nicaea Council of AD325. The Laodicean spirit saw the old order of dynastic rule replaced by our Hegelian sham Democracies and by collectivism or Communism wherein everyone is supposedly equal when in fact both systems are ruled from above by the 'hidden hand' of the Great Sanhedrin Council of the City of London that pulls the strings of puppet dictators like George W. Bush, Tony Blair and John Howard as once they manipulated kings and potentates. An elected politician is more readily subverted or deposed than a hereditary monarch. This free-wheeling spirit which is all sails with no anchor in the Absolute of God's Word has usurped the proper place and authority of the clergy. People are now ignorant of the fact that a sovereign God ordained and has set a five-fold ministry in His Church, free from seminary training and independent of a 'democratic' vote by the congregation. Message and mainstream denominational churches have both been infiltrated by non-believers and foreign sympathizers.

Scripture confirms F.D. Roosevelt's statement, "If something happens in politics, you can bet it was planned that way." And the 'hidden hand' no doubt planned America's ignominious destiny long before Columbus rediscovered America. In "The Rulers of Evil," F. Tupper Saussy writes, "The Black Obelisk of Calah, which stands in the Babylonian-Assyrian Wing of the British Museum, records the great accomplishments of the ninth-century BC god-king, Shalmaneser II. In a scene depicting various monarchs paying obeisance to Babylon, we see one monarch kneeling before Shalmaneser, worshiping him. Shalmaneser in turn offers a sacrifice to an eight-pointed star set within a bird's wings and tail-feathers. Inscriptions identify this kneeling monarch as King Jehu of Israel. Remarkably, according to the New Catholic Encyclopedia, Jehu's likeness here is the only known contemporaneously-rendered portrait of a biblical personage. More remarkably, Jehu is wearing the Phrygian cap. Like Brumidi's 'Young America,' Jehu's 'Liberty' is subject to the mood of his god-king."

"The Bible confirms the testimony of the Black Obelisk. At II Kings 10:31 we read: "Jehu took no heed to walk in the Law of the Lord God of Israel with all his heart." Scripture further tells us that Jehu worshiped the golden calf, a sacred Babylonian icon made fashionable in tenth-century-BC Israel by Jehu's predecessor, Jeroboam. Jeroboam renounced "the Law of the Lord God of Israel" and instituted . . . democracy. Democracy opened the Israelite priesthood, originally appointed by Yahweh exclusively to the family of Levi, to all applicants. Consequently, Yahweh's priesthood was infiltrated by non-believers and foreign sympathizers. They prepared the way for Jehu to make of himself a Phrygian freeman, obligated to concur with obedience of the understanding in all things which his superior, Shalmaneser II, commanded—exactly as the Black Obelisk explains in lucid visual terms. As a direct result of Jehu's departure from the God of Israel, the Israelite nation began falling apart. It was ultimately destroyed by Caesarean Rome, the legitimate heir to Shahnaneser's Babylonian authority as it passed down through Pergamum."

"Running throughout this cosmic Battle of the Faiths is a highly refined cabalah involving the concept of "golden calf." The word "calf" in Hebrew, the language of Jehu and Jeroboam, is pronounced "eagle." Whereas Jehu gave his people Shalmaneser's golden eagle to worship, the Church Militant has trained the American public to worship Rome's golden eagle, which surmounts every flagpole. Could it be that if we show respect, affection, or loyalty toward the national eagle we create the presumption of worshiping the golden calf, and so alienate ourselves from the God of the Bible and in the vacuum find ourselves under the rule of the Church Militant?" (F. Tupper Saussy, The Rulers of Evil, p. 258-260).

This must be the message symbolized by the Phrygian slave portrayed as young "America" in Brimidi's fresco that adorns the dome of the Capitol Building in Washington D.C. Brother Branham taught that Israel, which was enslaved and destroyed by Rome, types the United States which is enslaved by the Judaeo-Roman god-king, and will be destroyed by the 'Church Militant' or Judaeo-Jesuits.

Paul foretold II Timothy 4:3-4, "The time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts, because they have itching ears, will heap to themselves teachers, and turn their ears away from the truth to fables." The whole world is on its way to the anarchy planned by the Learned Elders of Zion whose champion is Rome's pope, as foretold in God's Word (II Thessalonians 2:3-10).

Ancient Laodicea formed the point where three roads converged and met, and the Church Age of that name was the point where religious, political and demon power converged and met in terminal apostasy that will see Satan having world hegemony incarnate in Rome's pope. It was originally called Diospolis (in honor of the Roman god Jupiter) and then Rhoas, but afterwards Laodicea, from Laodice, the wife of Antiochus II, king of Syria, who rebuilt it. Washington D.C. was originally called Rome, and Rome was originally Saturnia, "city of Saturn," the Roman god of fertility and planting whose Saturnalia was appropriated by the Romish church and renamed Christmas.

The city of Laodicea, often overthrown by earthquakes, was rebuilt by its wealthy citizens and without state help when destroyed in the reign of Nero in AD62. Her wealth was derived from banking, medicine, and a textile industry that manufactured soft, sleek, black garments and carpets from the excellent wool of black sheep. Soon our Laodicean world will be overthrown by an earthquake and rebuilt.

Like the Church Age, the city boasted of a deeper than common insight in the faith: they were short-sighted and not absolutely blind, else eye-salve would be of no avail. Unlike Sardis and Hierapolis, which had hot springs, Laodicea was noted for its lukewarm springs, pleasant for bathing but sickening to drink. And like the Church Age it types, the city was known for its wealth and spiritual complacency which Christ calls lukewarmness.

Christ has no commendation for Laodicea; there is nothing in its ministry that honors the Lord or brings his favor and blessing, there is only condemnation of her works. Revelation 3:15-16, "I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot: I would you were cold or hot. But because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue you out of My mouth".

The second condition that causes complacency in the Laodicean church is their self-confidence. People with wealth say, "I have need of nothing." Jesus said in John 15:1, "Without Me you can do nothing." Material abundance is clearly not conducive to spiritual vitality.

The third condition which causes complacency in the Laodicean church is their self-righteous attitude. However, they are bankrupt spiritually and know it not, miserable in their wealth and to be pitied as fearful beggars, blind to the fact they are naked of the Blood.

This Laodicean state of the church is summed up in three surveys: In 1985 it was reported that only 15% of nominal Christians read their Bible and pray daily; in 1987 a survey revealed that Christians place a higher value on their lifestyle than on their church; and in 2004 The Wall Street Journal published "Unbelieving born-again," a story based on survey data by Christian researcher George Barna:

  1. 26% of born-again "Christians" believe all religions are fundamentally the same.
  2. 50% believe a life of good works will get one to heaven.
  3. 35% do not believe Jesus Christ physically rose from the dead.
  4. 52% do not believe the Holy Spirit is a living entity.
  5. 45% do not believe Satan exists.
  6. 10% believe in reincarnation.
  7. 29% believe it is possible to communicate with the dead.
  8. 33% accept same-sex unions.
  9. 39% believe it is morally acceptable for couples to live together before marriage, which is fornication.

In addition to all of the above, the divorce rate of America is currently 51%, of which 27% claim to be born again Christians (World Magazine, December 6, 2004). What caused such a drastic change from the fiery Philadelphia heritage to a lukewarm Laodicean finale?

"Although Christ mentions no secret society influence in the Laodicean church to cause it to become lukewarm, there is other Scripture relating to the end-time church that suggests Masonic influence. II Timothy 4:3-4, "The time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts, because they have itching ears, will heap to themselves teachers, and turn their ears away from the truth to fables." The Greek rendering of three words in this passage reveal that Masonic materialism and Masonic doctrine have crept into the church of the last days.

"Those words are "lusts," "heap" and "fables." In Greek, to "lust" means to "long for what is forbidden." This could either be forbidden physical lust or forbidden spiritual lust. In context with the thought of this Scripture, it means lust for something other than sound doctrine. The second word "heap" in Greek means in context with this Scripture, "to seek to amass additional information" but without faith. The additional information sought is found in the word "fables" which means "to initiate into a myth." "Fable" comes from the Greek word "mysteries" which means "to shut the mouth; a secret through the idea of silence imposed by initiation into religious rites." There is no question as to what this is referencing. The teachers that end-time Laodiceans heap to themselves are often Judaeo-Masons who initiate them into the additional information of Masonic mysteries and Jewish fables for which they lust. Not only is there scriptural evidence that secret societies have infiltrated the end-time church, there is also historic evidence that Freemasonry planned to destroy the effect of the church by making it materialistic.

"The first phrase "I counsel you to buy of Me gold tried in the fire, that you may be rich" speaks of judgment passed, for the word "tried" is past tense. Whose judgment could that be but God's judgment of the sins of mankind placed on Christ at the cross. Christ the Word is already judged and justified. He emerged from that judgment as pure gold. Paraphrased, Christ is saying, "buy of that gold; appropriate My righteousness so that when your works are tried they come out as My works." If we don't apply Christ's golden works to our lifestyle, our own future works will be judged in heaven. This is not the Great White Throne Judgment at the end of the Millennium but the judgment seat of Christ where we Christians are to be rewarded according to our works here on earth.

"In I Corinthians 3:11-15 Paul is referring to Christians as he paints a word picture of that judgment: "No other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build upon this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; each man's work will become clear: for the day will declare it, because it shall be revealed by Fire; and the Fire will test each one's work of what sort it is. If anyone's work which he has built on Christ endures, he will receive a reward. If anyone's work is burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as through Fire".

"The second phase speaks of living a righteous lifestyle here on earth, "I counsel you to buy of Me white garments, that you may be clothed, so the shame of your nakedness is not exposed." The clothing of the well-to-do in ancient Laodicea was fine, black wool. In contrast, Christ says "buy of Me white raiment." Spiritually, white robes represent the righteous acts of the saints. Most Laodiceans calling themselves Christians are not wearing white garments. In fact, the Greek rendition of the word "naked" is "absolutely and completely naked." This means that they are wearing no spiritual garments at all, neither white as did the Philadelphia Christians nor defiled garments as did the Sardis Christians.

"Laodicean Christians (so-called) are completely naked from the neck down; they wear only their helmet of salvation. Consequently, the outsider sees no difference between their lifestyle and that of the world: both smoke, drink, dance and curse, both read pornographic magazines and wear scanty clothes with their private parts pronounced, both live licentious lifestyles and have abortions, both go to bars, x-rated movies and watch filth on television, both are dishonest in business deals, cheat on their income tax, lie to others, cheat others, steal from others, and both go to church. Christ calls Laodiceans spiritually naked and desires that they cover their nakedness with His righteousness so that their shame is not exposed. Or that the disgrace and dishonesty of their lifestyle is not publicly exposed.

"Finally, the phrase "anoint your eyes with eyesalve that you may see" speaks of blindness as to what is spiritually important. The word "eyes" carries the idea of "the lust of the eye." Within the context of the Laodicean emphasis of acquiring wealth, envious or jealous side glances suggest lukewarm believers are covetous of material worldly wealth above spiritual riches.

"Christ's warning is found in Revelation 3:19, "As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Be zealous therefore and repent." Philadelphia was given the promise "I will keep you from the tribulation." However the Laodiceans are threatened with that judgment if they do not repent. In Luke 18:8 we read the grim reality: "When the Son of man comes, will He find the faith on earth?" He found "the faith" in only one man, the man He ordained to be the prophet-messenger for Laodicea and the Elijah to His end-time Bride. Hence the only revival today is in the heart of the Bride. Christ gives no prophecy of another international great awakening as in the Philadelphia Age. There is only the Message of revival in the individual Christian: "Be zealous therefore and repent. . . I rebuke and chasten those I love."

"In Revelation 3:20 we find our Savior is knocking for re-entry to the 'democratic' church that voted Him out of its assembly. "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My Voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me." (Recording by John Daniel, Secret Societies and Their Infiltration of the Seven Churches of Revelation).

Brother Branham said, "This is the Message to the church of the last Age. This is the condition of the Laodicean church as its end nears. It is not a personal message to one person; it is the Spirit telling us where Jesus is. CHRIST HAS LEFT THE CHURCH."

"Is this not the logical result or end if the Word is put aside for creed, the Holy Spirit deposed for popes, bishops, presidents, counselors, etc., and the Savior set aside for a works program, or church joining, or some type of conformity to a church system? What more can be done against Him? This is the apostasy! This is the falling away! This is the open door to antichrist, for if One came in His Father's Name (Jesus) and was not received, but rejected, then there will come another with his own name (a liar, a pretender) and him they will receive, John 5:43. "The man of sin, that son of perdition will take over" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 357).

How sad it is that the majority of the Laodicean church are not listening or even care or even know that the Savior is absent from their midst. In Matthew 18:20 Christ says "For where two or three are gathered together in My Name, there am I in the midst of them." A Laodicean church doesn't even have two people in its assembly gathered in the Name of Christ, for Christ is outside the door. There is hope however, for Christ will come in and have communion with one if that one person will open the door. And perchance the spark lit by that one person will ignite into a flame and turn the lukewarm church hot for the glory of God.

Revelation 3:21, "To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with Me in My throne (on earth in the Millennium), even as I also overcame, and am set down with My Father in His throne (in heaven)." How does a Laodicean overcome? The Scripture says "as Christ also overcame." Christ never sought after wealth; His life was one of self-denial. He likewise overcame temptation for He was in all points tempted as we are yet without sin. And finally, Christ willingly gave up His life. It is easier to live a Christian life in poverty or under a suppressive government than it is to live righteously in an opulent society, like our sham democracies, where people's rights were once protected and their individual accountability recognized and honored.

Laodicean means "people's rights." A Christian who seeks after wealth and political rights will not submit himself to picking up his cross of "no rights" and following Jesus. On the other hand, the Laodicean overcomer will not seek those rights but instead seek the will of God through daily communion, Bible study and prayer. This gives him the mind of Christ which enables him to overcome as Christ overcame. His eyes anointed with Spiritual eyesalve, he sees black as black and white as white with no shades of gray. He plays no games of reason about sin. He flees from evil and the appearance of evil, and if he does err, the sun never sets without his asking forgiveness. Material things are of no consequence although he may be wealthy. If not wealthy, he never envies another's fortune. His Christianity is hot, not lukewarm. He has no fear of boldly witnessing Christ wherever the occasion arises.

Communist Infiltration of the Catholic Church

Two former Communists, Bella Dodd and Manning Johnson, spoke on Communist infiltration of the Catholic Church. Dodd, an important Communist party lawyer, teacher and activist, converted to Catholicism in April, 1952, under the tutelage of Bishop Fulton J. Sheen. Stating that the Communist infiltration was so extensive that in the future "you will not recognize the Catholic Church," Dodd also asserted that:

"In the 1930's, we put eleven hundred men into the priesthood in order to destroy the Church from within."

"Right now they are in the highest places, and they are working to bring about change in order that the Catholic Church will no longer be effective against Communism."

Manning Johnson, a former Communist Party official and author of "Color, Communism and Common Sense" testified in 1953 to the House un-American Activities Committee regarding the infiltration of the Catholic Church:

"Once the tactic of infiltration of religious organizations was set by the Kremlin . . . the Communists discovered that the destruction of religion could proceed much faster through infiltration of the (Catholic) Church by Communists operating within the Church itself. The Communist leadership in the United States realized that the infiltration tactic in this country would have to adapt itself to American conditions (Europe also had its cells) and the religious make-up peculiar to this country. In the earliest stages it was determined that with only small forces available to them, it would be necessary to concentrate Communist agents in the seminaries. The practical conclusion drawn by the Red leaders was that these institutions would make it possible for a small Communist minority to influence the ideology of future clergymen in the paths conducive to Communist purposes. This policy of infiltrating seminaries was successful beyond even our communist expectations".

Is the Pope a Catholic?
by Henry Makow Ph.D.

On New Year's Day 2004 Pope John Paul II called for a "new world order . . . based on the goals of the United Nations." When a world leader uses this terminology, it can only mean one thing. He is a part of the Luciferian conspiracy to create a totalitarian world government.

all-seeing eyeAccording to Piers Compton, a former Catholic priest, the Papacy was actually subverted by the Illuminati in 1958 when John XXIII became Pope. This was the culmination of a 200-year campaign to infiltrate and destroy the Catholic Church.

Piers Compton was the Literary Editor of the Catholic Weekly "The Universe" for 14 years. He documents his claims in "The Broken Cross," (1981) a book that is almost impossible to find because it was mysteriously withdrawn a few weeks after its release. Compton traces the modern phase of the Luciferian Conspiracy to Adam Weishaupt who established the Illuminati on May 1, 1776. "[He] was backed financially, as are most if not all anarchistic leaders, by a group of bankers under the House of Rothschild.

It was under their direction that the long range and worldwide plans of the Illuminati were drawn up." (8) In 1783, the Illuminati assumed control of much of Freemasonry, which secretly coordinated the revolutionary movement (Liberalism, Socialism, and Communism.) According to David Bay, "secret societies like the "Skull and Bones" have always functioned as Satan's church, as the only way to pass the baton from generation to generation."

The Illuminati regarded the Catholic Church as their chief obstacle and marked it for ruin. In 1818, their Italian lodge issued a set of "Permanent Instructions" that included: "We require a Pope for ourselves . . . to march more securely to the storming of the church. . ." The goal was "the complete annihilation of Catholicism and even ultimately of Christianity. If Christianity were to revive, even upon the ruins of Rome, it would, a little late revive and live." (13-14)

Pope Leo XIII

In an Encyclical, December 8, 1892, Pope Leo XIII identified two Kingdoms. "The one is the kingdom of God on earth, namely, the true Church of Jesus Christ; and those who desire from their heart to be united with it. . . The other is the kingdom of Satan . . . those who refuse to obey the divine and eternal law, and who have many aims of their own in contempt of God, and many aims also against God."

Throughout history they have been in conflict.

"At this period, however, the partisans of evil seemed to be combining together, and to be struggling with united vehemence, led on or assisted by that strongly organized and widespread association called the Freemasons. No longer making any secret of their purposes, they are now boldly rising up against God Himself".

Ironically, when Leo XIII died in 1903, a Freemason, Cardinal Mariano Rampolla was almost elected Pope. Emperor Franz Joseph of Austria vetoed his appointment in the last moment. . .

The Illuminists had to wait another 55 years to gain control of the Papacy. When Pope Pius XII died in 1958, a Freemason, Cardinal Angello Roncalli became Pope John XXIII.

Predictably, his first act was to begin to remove the element of Divine Revelation from Catholic teaching, and to embrace naturalism, materialism and Communism. These steps were taken at the Ecumenical Council in 1962 and Vatican Two in 1965.

As a result, Malachi Martin, a former Jesuit, predicted the Roman Catholic Church would no longer be recognizable by the year 2000. "There will be no centralized, control, no uniformity in teaching, no universality in practice and worship, prayer, sacrifice and priesthood." (63)

Pope Paul VI

Cardinal Giovanni Montini, who succeeded John XXIII as Pope Paul VI in 1963, was also a Freemason and socialist. (In 1944 Pope Pius XII had dismissed him as Vatican Secretary of State for conducting secret negotiations with the Communists). (53) Paul VI revealed his true colors in a speech to the United Nations in 1965: "It is your task here to proclaim the basic rights and duties of Man. You are the interpreters of all that is permanent in human wisdom; we could almost say of its sacred character." (67)

This repudiation of the church's spiritual authority was symbolized by giving the Papal Ring and his Pectoral Cross to Secretary General U Thant who sold them at an auction. (71)

The United Nations was set up on land donated by the Rockefellers as a front for the elite's Luciferian dictatorship. Its Charter was based on the Constitution of Soviet Russia and its leaders were Communists. It's Chapel is dedicated to paganism and run by the Lucis Trust (formerly Lucifer Trust) which also handles all its publications.

The Broken Cross

Paul VI also embraced a sinister symbol used by Satanists in the 6th Century, which had been revived by Vatican Two. This was a bent or broken cross on which was displayed a repulsive and distorted figure of Christ. Sorcerers and black magicians in the Middle Ages had used it for occult purposes because it represented the "Mark of the Beast." Compton: "Not only Pope Paul VI but also his successors the two John Pauls carried that object and held it up to be revered by crowds who had not the slightest idea that it stood for the anti Christ."

Paul VI abolished the anti-Modernist Oath, the Index of forbidden books, and revised the Canon Laws. History and texts were re-edited. He encouraged "humanist" theologians like Schillebeeckx who taught that the "the most honest and natural man was one who believed nothing." (105)

In 1976, the Journal "Borghese" printed a list of 125 top clerics who were Freemasons in contravention of Church law. It included their dates of initiation and secret code names taken from the Italian Register of Secret Societies. Compton prints the list, which includes the heads of Vatican radio and press, Catholic education as well as numerous high officials, Cardinals and Archbishops.

Because Paul VI was Pope, nothing came of it. Sounding very much like the Mason he was, Paul said in 1969: "We are about to witness a greater freedom in the life of the Church. . . fewer obligations and fewer inward prohibitions. Formal disciplines will be reduced . . . every form of intolerance will be abolished." (104)

This attitude is explained by reports that from 1936-1950, the future Paul VI was part of a Communist espionage network, a part owner in a chain of brothels and financed erotic films. (110)

Popes John Paul I and II

Alibino Lucano, the Cardinal of Venice became Pope John Paul I on August 26, 1978. He was also a "committed Left-winger" but he may have taken issue with the Vatican's financial shenanigans because he was dead a month later. There was no autopsy.

The current Pope John Paul II, Karol Wojtyla, succeeded him. Wojtyla is the first non-Italian since 1522, and the only Pope from an Iron Curtain country. Compton notes that while the other Polish Cardinal Wyszynski "never yielded an inch" to the Communists, Wojtyla opposed this attitude and collaborated. The Abbe de Nantes exclaimed, "We have a Communist Pope."

During the Conclave at which he was elected, Wojtyla read from a book of Marxist principles. In his first Encyclical, he praised Paul VI for having "revealed the true countenance of the Church" and bringing it in step "with the times." He went so far as to say that opponents of Vatican Two "cannot be considered the faithful." (172)

In a letter September 1, 1981, he said, "Christian tradition has never upheld the right of private property as absolute and untouchable." This contradicts numerous Encyclicals which state that private property is "a necessary incentive to human enterprise" and in accordance with divine wisdom and the laws of nature.

Pope Pius XII: "Only private enterprise can provide the head of a family with the healthy freedom it requires to carry out the duties allotted to him by the Creator for the physical, spiritual and religious well being of the family." (174)

Apparently Communism (public ownership) is a ruse by which the bankers and monopoly capitalists will own everything. On November 27, 1983 Pope John Paul II issued a Papal Bull that legalized secret society membership for Roman Catholics.

While ostensibly a celibate priest, Compton suggests that Wojtyla's behavior resembled a Bohemian artist. He was involved in theatre in Poland and penned a play about prostitution. Compton reproduces pictures of him when he was a Bishop or Cardinal. He is with a woman and child on a beach. The child is climbing on him. They look very much like a family.

In 1960, he published a book "Love and Responsibility" which extolled sexual love and describes both the physiology and psychology of sex. He told an audience of French youth: "Bodily union has always been the strongest language two people can have for each other."


Writing from the vantage point of 1981, Compton predicts that the Church's traditional positions will continue to be watered down. Around the same time, Malachi Martin said, "The Christian church is decaying, has nothing to say and is on the way out." He added that the other great religions are suffering the same fate and predicted, "A worldwide religion with one structure and institutions," managed by "one great bureaucracy. And out of that will emerge the ultimate disaster."

I present this material because it is consistent with the emerging picture of an organized Satanic Conspiracy to subvert mankind.

Thus we can identify the lures of the modern world—consumerism, the mystification of sexual love, and the promise of "tolerance, human rights, social justice and equality" as part of a diabolical process of spiritual, mental and physical enslavement.

Modern western society appears to be based on this conspiracy against God. Our cultural and political leaders are mostly witting or unwitting accomplices, as are we.

Eventually, we will learn that real freedom lies in obeying God. The alternative is to become Lucifer's slave. The barbarism of the past century was not an aberration, but a harbinger of the future. nl314.htm
