Seven Mountains of Revelation

Revelation 17:9

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


Here is another riddle in Revelation and I want to attempt to solve this problemo.

First of all, a woman is a church.

OBVIOUSLY, Rev. 17 is describing a false church.

The verse also says that the heads are seven mountains:

It is obvious—> the hills of Rome.

Seven hills of Rome

List of cities claimed to be built on seven hills

Thats a lot of cities!

To take this a step further

I think it is what this church stands upon spiritually

that are the seven mountains!

Seven Sacraments of the Roman Catholic  Church

Seven Deadly Sins which the above sacraments help to alleviate.

Sounds like the RCC ITself!

It’s a business, you see!

Talk about HYPOCRISY!

I’m sure I will be very unpopular for what is the obvious meaning of the above verse, but that’s life! I love the catholic friends I have known in my life, and always will, but it is what it is. and it is not my fault. What else could the above verse mean? The history of that church system proves itself. What else do you need?

Roman Catholicism is slavery!

They give a false remedy to sin

and lie to it’s own people

and they profit from it.

That is EVIL!

Indulgences, Tourism to every shrine made for every false sighting or revelation from Mary, Icons, Relics, Idols, books, and EUCHARIST WAFERS, and last, but not least,

the The Shroud of Turin!

More than likely involved in illegal banking practices! The Press! UNIONS! Education! Government!

(A self -fulfilling blob)

I think that is why it is referred to as THE BEAST!

The Mysterious Death of Pope John Paul I [A Treatise]

Isn’t that why one Pope got bumped off? He had the audacity to want to clean up the Vatican’s banking problems. He was known as the smiling Pope! He lasted a whole 30 days! He is the 5th Pope (#263) since the signing of the The Lateran Concordant!

The post linked above is about the prophecy in Revelation:

Revelation 17:11

And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.


Revelation 18:4
Then I heard another voice from heaven say: “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues;

Today I read an article:

What Is the “Abomination of Desolation”?

The article submitted by The Restored Church of God (RCG Organization) above did not surprise me because I have heard the same description about the abomination of desolation for many years in hundreds (if not thousands) of articles on the internet and all of them seem to be basically alike.

What gets me is why did not the rendition of Jesus in the

Gospel of Matthew get more specific about the future: like saying that people will be flying in airplanes and driving cars? Wouldn’t Jesus have thought that would help us to know that these are the end times? Wouldn’t he want us to know this? How about space travel? And internet communication? What about Haarp and weather manipulation? Mind control?  WWI and WWII where millions of people are slaughtered in ovens and gas chambers? How about the unknown continent of America?

IT is as if he does not know! Just gives vague prophecies of little value!

How convenient!

Matthew 24:41

41Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

He talks about two women grinding at the mill, granted women still do that in places like Africa. Seems odd he would leave out so much detail and is so vague about the signs except for the signs that happened in the tumultuous years of the destruction of Jerusalem and Rome. IN fact he says:

Matthew 24:19

19And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

Well, just so happens Josephus mentions in his writings about some of the same things written about in the Gospel of Matthew.


It seems as if the vision of Matthew is a bit short sighted!

As if he could only see what was to be in the future by looking back!

The Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke and Acts and many of the other epistles all seem to weave a nice basket that Josephus backs with his prophecies that as far as I can tell he saw in the future behind him as well!



I AM THAT I AM (Part two)

The Gospel of Matthew rendition of Jesus appears to be a false prophet he warned of when he said:

Matthew 24:3

3And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

Matthew 24:4

4And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you


noun \ˈnō-mən\plural no·mi·na

: the second of the three usual names of an ancient Roman male — compare cognomenpraenomen

Kind of a play on words!

Interesting site: Nomen

Matthew 24:35

35Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

Seems to me many of his words did pass away by his nomen!

Matthew 24:22

22And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

Who is Matthew’s Jesus speaking about when he says the elect?

And the flesh is the word and very little of it survived!

Matthew 23:26-39

36Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.

Yea because it had already happened by the time Matthew (author of Matthew) wrote this particular verse!

37O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!

With a little help from their friends!

38Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.

How thoughtful and kind. This person acting in the name of Jesus is pretending he cares as he is rubbing their nose in the dirt.

39For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

This person is not the Son of God that is in the Gospel of John!

Because in the Gospel of John they greet Jesus with those same words after he had raised Lazerus from the dead in Bethany as he entered Jerusalem on the colt of an ass for the Jewish feast when the Chief Priests freaked out about how the people were following him and preceeded to entrap the real Jesus. (The one that came to glorify the name of His Father and not just himself!!!! ) The Messiah did not come to crucify Israel either. Pope Benedict was welcomed by those same words by Perez in Israel at the airport when he visited and also toured the Dome of the Rock. (although the film was edited and over-dubbed since then. I heard it and that is what alarmed me. Why was it altered if it wasn’t indicative of deception.)

John 12:12-13 King James Version

12On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,

13Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.

John 12:12-13 New International Version

12The next day the great crowd that had come for the Feast heard that Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem. 13They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting,
“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”[d] 
“Blessed is the King of Israel!” 14Jesus found a young donkey and sat upon it, as it is written,

Funny, I recall that what is written in the NIV is what was said in KJV, but isn’t.

38Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.

Sounds like he relishes this desolation and I don’t buy that the Messiah would say that!

Important to observe that Jerusalem was not desolate at that time….

not yet.

Odd discrepancy if you ask me!

I guess the author of the gospel of Matthew had NOT counted on the the survival of the written account given about the true Son of God in the Gospel of John!

Timing is very important!

When Pope Benedict went to Jerusalem in May of 2008 He was greeted by Shimon Perez at the airport and I saw the video clip where Shimon Perez said “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.”

You don’t have to allow him in! He certainly won’t be serving. He is relishing his job.

IT disappeared quickly!!!!

I think that Pope Benedict is the Synoptic version of Jesus in the bible ie a false ‘made up’ rendition of Jesus…..more like Josephus Flavius!

The problem with everyone trying to decipher the meaning of what is written about Jesus is that there is a difference between the Son of Man and the Son of God. One of them has a kingdom now on earth and then the true Son of God’s kingdom is not of this world and He is the true Messiah!

A lot of people were named Jesus back in those days.

A lot of people were named Simon

and Joseph and Matthew, etc.

A lot of people called all kinds of things God!

The Gospel of John and the Synoptic Gospels are talking about two different people.

The Gospel of John seems to be an eyewitness account from the inside. The Synoptic Gospels seem to be a distant, fragmented, corrupted, confused account and very antithetical to the Gospel of John (I believe on purpose) to deceive the readers about who is the true Messiah. There is a huge difference in the personality, character and message portrayed of the Messiah in the Gospel of John and the Synoptic Gospels and they cannot be the same person. Jesus seems to be apolitical in the gospel of John and very political in the synoptic renditions.

The false synoptic versions of the account of the Son of God is the Great Deception!

You cannot combine the Gospel of John with the Synoptic Gospels and say they match, because they don’t.

They are so opposite and they collide!

Everyone needs to remember that there was a war in Heaven and a third of the angels fell! They want to deceive men about God and His Son!

Why? Because they hate God and His Son and they hate all men and women!

Not just the Jews, not just the Christians, and not just Arabs, etc!

Matthew 10:22
And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

Mark 13:13
And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Luke 21:17
And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake.

I put in the search on the online bible “hated of all men”and the Synoptic Gospels are the only ones that have this same saying. (Matthew 10:22Mark 13:13Luke 21:17)

I suspect that the Synoptic Jesus was hoping that this would be true and more than likely wants to pick and choose his favorites to endure while turning each faction he invented against each other to confuse us so that we don’t know who the real enemy is. It is a trick of the devil.

I don’t consider these duplicate verses very much of a prophecy

(Mark 13:13 Matthew 10:22).

Whoever survives will survive. I guess he needed to point out the obvious! Maybe because the Synoptic Jesus needs and loves martyrs! Notice that there aren’t very many martyrs in the Vatican. Those are the guys that get to endure for the Synoptic Messiah.

Chief Priests and the Legion – Revised

The Synoptic Jesus is a very mixed up Messiah!

Maybe “all men” has another meaning!

WHEN ALL MEANS FAIL by Rev. David Wilkerson

Please read the following article which I believe exposes the enemy:

Rev. Wilkerson, Evangelicalism and the Covenant With Many


Could this rendition of Jesus be the Abomination of Desolation. He sure seems to gloat about their demise!

Daniel 11:45 (King James Version)

45And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.

Love how words that never pass away seem to be doing just that.  Compare the same verse in New International Version:

Daniel 11:45 (New International Version)

45 He will pitch his royal tents between the seas at [a] the beautiful holy mountain. Yet he will come to his end, and no one will help him.

Pope Benedict delivered a tabernacle:

Pope Benedict XVI Blesses Magdala Center Cornerstone

“Duc in altum – Put out into the deep”

Im no prophet, but sure seems coincidental ….

Yet it very well could mean absolutely nothing!

I think the Abomination of Desolation happened already

and we are still enduring it!

After reading Matthew 24

I get the feeling

MATTHEW got up on the wrong side of the bed.

Indulgences and the Parable of Usury

Matthew 25:14-30

14 For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. 15And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; andstraightway took his journey. 16Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents. 17And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two. 18But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord’s money. 19After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them. 20And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more. 21His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.22He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them. 23His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. 24Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed 25And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine. 26His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: 27Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.28Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.29For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.30And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Talk about being diametrically opposite to

Jesus Christ

in the Gospel of John!

I believe the true Jesus Christ would never

in a zillion years

have said that parable to anyone.

It’s an abomination!

The Gospel of Matthew gives the impression that Jesus Christ

was an investor wheeler-dealer

and wants us to do the same!

How about business practices?

Would it matter

how one doubled their talent?

Not according to Luke!

Luke 19:22-24

22And he saith unto him,

Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked servant.

Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow:

23Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into thebank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with


24And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and give it to him that hath ten pounds.

Two men torch themselves in Italy as hardship bites

Hardship = Austerity=Unmerciful=FAKE


This is what the real Jesus said:

John 10:9-11

9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved,

and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

10The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:

I am come that they might have life,

and that they might have it more abundantly.11

I am the good shepherd:

the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

Does Jesus Christ sound austere?

Please Read:


I AM THAT I AM (Part two)

I Am the True Vine

Jesus Christ was not austere, nor greedy, nor a thief!

Were there banks in Israel when Jesus Christ visited them?

History of Banking

I can’t help think about Jesus Christ

overturning the money changers

at the temple:

John 2:13

13And the Jews’ passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.14And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:15And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables;16And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise.17And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.18Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?19Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.20Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?

21But he spake of the temple of his body.


The Parable of Usury quoted in the Gospel of Matthew and Luke are diametrically opposed to the Son of God!


The Old Testament seems to say something totally opposite of the Parable of Usury related in the gospel of Matthew and aped in the gospel of Luke.

Psalm 15:5

5He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.

Exodus 22:25

25If thou lend money to any of my people that is poor by thee, thou shalt not be to him as an usurer, neither shalt thou lay upon him usury.

Leviticus 25:35-37

35And if thy brother be waxen poor, and fallen in decay with thee; then thou shalt relieve him: yea, though he be a stranger, or a sojourner; that he may live with thee.36Take thou no usury of him, or increase: but fear thy God; that thy brother may live with thee.37Thou shalt not give him thy money upon usury, nor lend him thy victuals for increase.

Deuteronomy 23:19-20

19Thou shalt not lend upon usury to thy brother; usury of money, usury of victuals, usury of any thing that is lent upon usury:20Unto a stranger thou mayest lend upon usury; but unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon usury: that the LORD thy God may bless thee in all that thou settest thine hand to in the land whither thou goest to possess it.


I guess the Jesus Christ rendered in the gospel of Matthew and Mark will reward the rich, powerful and greedy in these articles linked below!



Why Catholic Indulgences Are Making a Comeback


Pauline Year Indulgence

Pope approves Lourdes indulgences

Indulgences regain relevance under Benedict

Holy Father to grant plenary indulgences for the Year of Priests

Special Indulgence for the Year for Priests

World Youth Day Indulgences

Do these articles above fulfill the Parable of Usury?

Yes, I believe they fulfill it to the brim! In fact, I would say their cup spilleth over with usury!

Pope Benedict aka Ratzinger fits the mold very nicely!


The True Jesus Christ was not a liar or a cheater!

Indulgences are an abomination!

Nowhere in the bible does it say you can buy anything in the Kingdom of the True God!

Revelation 16:21

And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

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

Jesus Christ did not come to make slaves, but to free us from slavery. Paul and his followers and their made-up version of Jesus Christ came to make slaves! The Parable above is a lie!

Jesus Christ said that our work is to believe in Him!

Men have added their propaganda in the bible to enslave us! You have to discern what is true and what is false and both are recorded in the bible. That is why it is so important not to rely on scholars, religious zealots, religion, religious leaders, etc. I think that is why Jesus fed the 5000 men his bread and collected 12 baskets of fragments because he knew what men would do to his word.

Now, in the news the Vatican Bank is under investigation for Money Laundering.


Who’d have thought?
