Today is the day. Probably for the first time in my life, I will be within 5 miles (8 kilometers) to the “Beast” of Revelation. I’d like to share some text for my Catholic friends and those who claim they’re not Catholic but are Catholic in their religious experience:
“You must call no one on earth your father, since you have only one Father, and he is in heaven.” Matt 23:9 (NJB)
“There is need for shrewdness here: anyone clever may interpret the number of the beast: it is the number of a human being, the number 666.” Rev. 13:18 (NJB)
I thought it interesting the followers of the Beast have within their own Bibles how to determine who he, the Beast, is yet they will ignore blatant truth and will be crowding the streets in admiration of the one they call, “Holy Father”, which their Bible forbids them to do!
Secondly, their own Bibles, too, identifies who this “Beast” is by giving the number “666”, which if they would look into this very simple matter of how the “Beast” is called in their language of the Roman Catholic Church, Latin: “Vicarius Filii Dei”. Take the numeric value in Roman Numerals you get:
“Vicarius” – (V=5, I=1, C=100, I=1, U=5) (there is no “u” but written as a “v”) = (112);
“Filii” – (L = 500, I-1, I-1, I-1) = (503);
“Dei” – (D-50, 1-1) = (51)
In total – (112 + 503 + 51) = 666!!!
Lastly, the Bible is clear that the “people of the world” will “worship” it, “it” being the system of the papacy (the Beast), by their being devoted to the day the Roman Catholic Church, with the authority of the Roman civil government, to worship on Sunday as opposed to God’s true Sabbath, Saturday. Therefore, those who worship on Sunday are followers of this Beast whether they know it or not, whether they accept it or not, are just as Catholic no matter how much they claim they are not.
I find it interesting while the Beast is out and about, at the same time the current news events which are taking place in the land where the Bible calls: “Sodom and Egypt” (Rev. 11:8) “France” has got the world focused on their situation. Here you have in a “godless” nation with “godless” people who call themselves followers of God (Allah) pushing their agenda and where are God’s People in all this? They’re preparing themselves for the Second Coming of Christ, preaching the “Three Angel’s Message” (Rev. 14:6-12).
Sadly, many will not understand, will not read, will not accept, and will not change in order to receive salvation. It is almost too late. READ YOUR BIBLES! Especially those of you who are Catholic in your admission or in your worship.
