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;

In The Garden of Gethsemane


Part one: The Prayers in the Garden

Matthew 26:36-46

36Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.37And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.38Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.

Mark 14:32-34

32And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and he saith to his disciples, Sit ye here, while I shall pray.33And he taketh with him Peter and James and John, and began to be sore amazed, and to be very heavy;34And saith unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death: tarry ye here, and watch.

Both Matthew and Mark say essentially the same thing!

Luke 22:35-40

35And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing.36Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

The reason for the contradiction is he has to lay the guilt of the arrest of Jesus Christ on Jesus Christ himself : for sedition

Jesus Christ did not tell his disciples to buy a sword!

And Luke was not a disciple of Jesus Christ and was not present in the garden to know what Jesus said and has come up with this story out of thin air!

37For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned (weighed) among the transgressors:

for the things concerning me have an end.

38And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords.

And he said unto them,

It is enough.

This is a parady of the last words Jesus said before he died when He said:

It is finished.

By the way, the things concerning Jesus of Nazareth do not have an end!

It is only wishful thinking outloud from Luke the follower of Saul/Paul and their “way”  which looks more and more like they are against the truth and they are the ones that weigh us.

The apostles of the false Christ from the Land of Synopsia

use their swords to slice and dice men, 

Jesus of Nazareth and his chosen apostles!

They are antithetical in their three gospels

and other books in the New Testament about

Jesus Christ in the gospel of John!

39And he came out, and went, as he was wont, to the mount of Olives; and his disciples also followed him.40And when he was at the place, he said unto them,

Pray that ye enter not into temptation.

Just out of nowhere Jesus says: Pray that ye enter not into temptation.

Again, making Jesus sound really weird!

================

Prayer Number One

================

Matthew 26:39-41

39And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.40And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?41Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

Mark 14:35-38

35And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him.36And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt.37And he cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou? couldest not thou watch one hour?38Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.

Luke 22:41-46

41And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,42Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.43And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.44And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.45And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow,46And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.

It is hard to enter into temptation when asleep and besides they were not asleep as the gospel of John tells.

Why in the world would they be sleeping in a garden in Gethsamane with their two swords that they armed themselves with before entering the garden anyway

(as Luke says earlier).

This is so ridiculous and fakey!

Luke says an angel appeared unto him from heaven to strengthen Jesus, but the other two synoptic gospels (Matthew and Mark) do NOT mention an angel. 

As I said a while ago, Luke was not there, so the angel comes from his own imagination!

==================

Prayer Number Two

==================

Matthew 26:42-43

42He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.43And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy.

Mark 14:39-40

39And again he went away, and prayed, and spake the same words.40And when he returned, he found them asleep again, (for their eyes were heavy,) neither wist they what to answer him.

Both Matthew and Mark say that Jesus went back a second time to pray for the cup to pass away from him! But in the gospel of John when Jesus was in Jerusalem for the Jewish Feast and he says:

John 12:27

27Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.

Jesus was not trying to escape the reason he came!

He is telling us in John 12:27 that others will say that he asks to be saved from this hour are not witnesses! All three synoptic gospels (Matthew, Mark and Luke) are agreed in this representation and have obviously misplaced this quote to another event and placed it in the garden and it has something to do with the Covenant with Many made in their rendition of the “Last Supper.” John does not include the Covenant with Many made in the Last Supper about drinking the fruit of the vine until the Kingdom of God has come.

Must be that the mysterious “Q” source told them to say it.

The Synoptic “Q Source”

I don’t believe the synoptic gospels (Matthew, Mark and Luke) of what happened in the garden, because Jesus said that was why he came to this hour was to glorify the name of God. Which he did at the feast in Jerusalem:

John 12:28

28Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.

==================

Prayer Number Three

==================

Matthew 26:44-46

44And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words 45Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 46Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray me.

Mark 14:41-42

41And he cometh the third time, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: it is enough, the hour is come; behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.42Rise up, let us go; lo, he that betrayeth me is at hand.

Both Matthew and Mark say that Jesus tells his disciples to sleep on and then tells them to rise.  They should have asked him “what do you want us to do? Sleep or rise?”

They make Jesus sound skitszoid!

Luke has no more to say about when Jesus prayed in the garden. Matthew says Jesus prayed a second time and a third time for the cup to pass from him. Mark only says he prayed a second time and a third time all the while the disciples were asleep. Does that include Mark? If he was asleep, how would he know? Luke doesn’t mention a second and a third prayer time. And to top it off……they were not there!

All verses are pretty similar but in Matthew Jesus fell on his face, and in Mark Jesus fell on the ground and in Luke Jesus kneels down to pray. Luke, who adds an angel, agony, and great drops of  sweat. Of course, they are all asleep so how would he know of the angel and drops of blood-like sweat and the agony. If Jesus was doing this would not that wake up the disciples, but they were asleep. I imagine if there were an angel visibly there they would be wide awake, but they were asleep.

Does not make sense! 

All three of the gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke say that Jesus is praying for the cup to be taken from him, but in the gospel of John this does not happen at all, in fact, Jesus had already prayed (chapter 17 Gospel of John) at the site of the Last Supper. We know Luke was not there, Mark was not there, and Matthew was not there since they missed out on the dialogue at the Last Supper and the prayer.

Jesus was not asking for the cup to be taken from him in the prayer at the Last Supper. John mentions no prayer at the garden but, of course, John and Peter and whoever was in the garden were supposed to be sleeping. Jesus knew what was going to happen. He is the spirit of prophecy as he says in Revelation.

Why do these other three gospels add this blarney when they were not there at the garden or the supper?

I like Shakespeare, but this is ridiculous.

================================

Part Two: The Kiss and the Arrest

=============================

Matthew 26:47-48

47And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came,

and with him a great multitude with swords and staves,

from the chief priests and elders of the people

.48Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast.49And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, master; and kissed him.

Sounds like Judas was Roman!

Mark 14:43-44

43And immediately, while he yet spake, cometh Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders.44And he that betrayed him had given them a token, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he; take him, and lead him away safely.45And as soon as he was come, he goeth straightway to him, and saith, Master, master; and kissed him.

How would Mark know what Judas said? Mark says that Judas says to lead him away safely and Matthew says: hold him fast after Judas kisses Jesus!

Matthew says Judas says Hail Master and Mark says Judas says Master, master.

Luke 22:47-48

47And while he yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss him.48But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?

That is what Matthew, Mark and Luke seem to be saying is that Judas betrays Jesus with a kiss! Jesus already knew Judas was going to betray him. He said it a bunch at dinner and in the gospel of Matthew 3 times before that. It wasn’t as if Jesus did not know that Judas was going to betray him! This kiss business is so contrived! Jesus knew who would betray him way before the betrayer knew. He also knew if he would kiss him or not and Jesus never prophecies a kiss from the betrayer.  HMMMMMM!

Why not?

I guess the authors of Matthew, Mark and Luke forgot to do that!

THE “Q” SOURCE FORGOT TO TELL MATTHEW, MARK AND LUKE.

Please read my post that I have linked:

An Holy Kiss

They betray themselves with their sign: an holy kiss!

Wasn’t it the Synoptic gospels

that said no sign would be given?

Well let’s check:

Matthew 16:3
And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?

Matthew 16:4
A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.

Mark 8:12
And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation.

Luke 2:12
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

Luke 2:34
And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against;

Luke 11:29
And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet.

Luke 11:30
For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son of man be to this generation.

So was the sign of the kiss from Judas in the Garden

the same sign as the sign of the prophet Jonas?

Was the sign of the prophet Jonas the sign of

the baby Jesus in swaddling clothes in a manger?

The Synoptic Gospels are a mess!

=========================

Part Three:  One of Them That Smote the Ear

=======================

Matthew 26:50-51

50And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come? Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus and took him.51And, behold, one of them which were with Jesus stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest’s, and smote off his ear.

Mark 14:46-47

46And they laid their hands on him, and took him.47And one of them that stood by drew a sword, and smote a servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear.

Luke 22:49-51

49When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword?50And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear.51And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed him.

Luke set this up earlier in his gospel when he said that Jesus told his disciples to buy a sword, so I’m surprised he doesn’t say who it is that smote the ear! But he does say that they asked whether they shall smite with the sword.

This is so unreal!

All three synoptic gospels say it was one of them that smote the ear, so I guess they don’t know which one of them it is!

Doesn’t sound like they are in the know!

Only the gospel of Luke says that Jesus healed the ear.

Luke wasn’t there!

He doesn’t know who smote the ear, but he knows Jesus healed the ear yet no one else notices Jesus healing the ear.

Perhaps Luke or Paul is Malchus?

In depictions of Paul there is always one ear missing or a covering of one ear. ( At least that is what I have noticed IN MY STUDIES AND EXPLORATION.)

Sounds an awful lot like Jackie Kennedy’s amnesia of leaping to the trunk of the car, but knowing why she did. To get brain parts when in actuality it looks an awful lot like a hard tube rolling, Maybe caps from a weapon? Not to mention failing to tell about the puppet she received over the fence line at the airport 1/2 hour before the assassination of JFK, but musing as to why someone would give her red roses as she arrived in Dallas. What is so odd about receiving red roses? Jackie Kennedy had lots of selective memories!   Back to the Gospel of Matthew:

Matthew 26:52-54

52Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.53Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?54But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?

Legion is a roman military term!

Only the three synoptic gospels speak about legion and legions, but mostly in reference to demons! Here is a post about Legions and demons:

Chief Priests and the Legion – Revised

Part Four:  Disciples Forsook Him


Matthew 26:55-56

55In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes, Are ye come out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye laid no hold on me.56But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled.Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled.

Of course thats what they were doing, and Jesus knew it! Why did Jesus ask when he already knew that they came out as against a thief with swords and staves to take him?

Again, the synoptic gospels have made nonsense of the truth and betray themselves!

Mark 14:48-52

48And Jesus answered and said unto them, Are ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and with staves to take me?49I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and ye took me not: but the scriptures must be fulfilled.50And they all forsook him, and fled.

51And there followed him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and the young men laid hold on him:52And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked.

This is a very strange addition to the story! I really don’t understand the meaning of it,

but I am sure the intent to deceive is written all over it!

Kind of makes me think of the Shroud of Turin!

Luke 22:52-53

52Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves?53When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.

Part Five:  Peter Follows

Matthew 26:57-58

57And they that had laid hold on Jesus led him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were assembled.58But Peter followed him afar off unto the high priest’s palace, and went in, and sat with the servants, to see the end.

Mark 14:53-54

53And they led Jesus away to the high priest: and with him were assembled all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes.54And Peter followed him afar off, even into the palace of the high priest: and he sat with the servants, and warmed himself at the fire.

Luke 22:54

54Then took they him, and led him, and brought him into the high priest’s house. And Peter followed afar off.

Looks like not all of the disciples fled or forsook Jesus as Matthew and Mark suggest in the section above! Matthew says Peter followed to see the end which is kind of suggesting that Peter was looking forward to this end. Luke seems to suggest that because of the “buying a sword tale” that the true Jesus Christ was the wolf that scatters the sheep only to cover up who the real wolf is!

This post tells who are the wolves in sheep’s clothing:

Chief Priests and the Legion – Revised

==============================


Part Six:  According to the Gospel of John


John 18:1-12

1When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the which he entered, and his disciples.2And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with his disciples.3Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons.4Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye?5They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them.6As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.7Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth.8Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way:9That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, Of them which thou gavest me have I lost none.10Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the high priest’s servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant’s name was Malchus.11Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath:

the cup

which my Father hath given me,

shall I not drink it?

12Then the band and the captain and officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him,

Peter was the ONE OF THEM that smote the ear!

The man that had his ear whacked was Malchus!

images

NSA collecting phone records of millions of Verizon customers daily

Jesus went forth to the garden to meet the band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, and also Judas.

He did not try to escape! He deliberately met the multitude!

He asked that his disciples be allowed to go their way!

They did not forsake him!

He did what He had purposed to do!

The Crucifixion

John 19:29-30

29Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar:

and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth.

30When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished:

and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

———————————————————-

The Covenant in Blood

I wonder why the three Synoptic Gospel have a a covenant for the many at the Last Supper,

but not in the Gospel of John.

Seems to me that the Gospel of John would include this covenant made with the many?

Matthew 26:26-28

26And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.27And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;28For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

Mark 14:22-25

22And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body.23And he took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them: and they all drank of it.24And he said unto them, This is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many.25Verily I say unto you, I will drink no more of the fruit of the vine, until that day that I drink it new in the kingdom of God.

Luke 22:20

20Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.

It is written as “covenant” instead of “testament” in the NIV and many other versions of the bible.

Definition of TESTAMENT

1
a archaic : a covenant between God and the human raceb capitalized : either of two main divisions of the Bible
2
a : a tangible proof or tributeb : an expression of conviction : creed
3
a : an act by which a person determines the disposition of his or her property after deathb : will
— tes·ta·men·ta·ry adjective
=========================================================

Daniel 9:27
And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

So what is Paul saying below?

I have a hard time with Paul and understanding where he is coming from because he seems most of the time to digress/swerve often!

Galatians 3:15-17
15Brethren, I speak after the manner of men;

Though it be but a man’s covenant,

yet if it be confirmed,

no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto.

16Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.

17

And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.

Daniel 9:27 (New International Version)

27 He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’ [a] In the middle of the ‘seven’ [b] he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on a wing of the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.

Confirmation of the Covenant: Who is “He”?

ABOMINATION THAT MAKETH DESOLATE


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!

SEQUENCE OF EVENTS IS IMPORTANT IN SORTING OUT THE TRUTH!

PLEASE READ:

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

nomen

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,
“Hosanna![c]
“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.”

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!

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

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!

Matthew 24

After reading Matthew 24

I get the feeling

MATTHEW got up on the wrong side of the bed.
