We received some very shocking, but revealing, information about Pope John Paul II from a sister Christian organization, Former Catholics For Christ . In their newsletter, dated Jan/Feb/Mar, 1998, they reveal that Pope John Paul II allowed a Shiva priestess to create the traditional Shiva mark on his forehead. Of course, this event will cause any person to sit up and take notice, those of us who literally believe Biblical prophecy. In the Book of Revelation, the False Prophet, the leader of the new global religion of Antichrist, causes all people in the world to take a mark, either in the forehead or in the right hand. Therefore, it is a big deal when a Pagan priestess causes a mark to be made in the forehead of the Pope!
You can see for yourself, as we were able to get the original picture from FCFC. You can see the priestess reach up with her right hand, planting the Shiva mark upon the forehead of the Pope, John Paul II.
Most of you probably do not know what Shiva religion is, so we will take a few moments to enlighten you. The New Age Dictionary defines the Shiva (pronounced "siva") as the "Hindu God of Illusion, Yoga, Animals, Ascetics; Lord of the Dance, who lives on Mt. Kailas, Benares, and sundry other places around the world". [Page 180]
Therefore, we know that the religion of Shiva is part of the Hindu religion, and that it is Pagan. If the Roman Catholic Pope is "Jesus Christ's Vicar On Earth", and if he is infallible when he is performing his duties as Pope, then how can he sanction the false religion of Hinduism? How can he allow a ceremony in which he not only receives a mark on his forehead, but he allows himself to take part in a ceremony which clearly identifies himself as being subservient to the Shiva priestess? Has Pope John Paul II forgotten our Lord's Words on this matter of other religions?
"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." [John 14:6] In other words, Jesus is declaring that His Way to Heaven is the only way, and that Christianity is the only valid religion on earth! By the way, this exclusivity used to be cardinal doctrine within the Roman Catholic Church, for centuries!
"Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the . Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." [Acts 4:10-12]
Pope John Paul II is defying the solemn Words of Jesus Christ when he gives credence and validity to the Pagan religion of Shiva. The Pope is denying, by his actions, that Christianity is the only real religion on Earth. But he is doing much more: he is defying the commandment of God in Jeremiah 10:2, "Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen".
Let us now examine how very heathen the practitioners of the Shiva religion of the Hindu truly are, and prepare to be shocked. We surfed the Web and discovered some very interesting facts about Shiva.
"Shiva Ardanariswara - Godhead as Divine Union. Shiva is the totality of existence - male and female, light and dark, creation and destruction, yin and yang. In this form called The Lord, whose Half is Woman, is found an expression not of duality but of the union of opposites. The deity's right side is dressed in a short dhoti, the traditional male garment from pre-history to present. The left side wears more elaborate female garments and jewelry. This anthropomorphic splitting symbolizes the primal event which modern physics calls the `big bang': form emerging from void, an Original Oneness achieving multiplicity."
Here, we discover that Shiva embodies the Satanic theology of the Principle of Duality, especially as represented by the Male and Female Principle! Shiva is pure Satanism. Shiva is also very typical of the New Age religion, which speaks a lot of achieving "Original Oneness" with the universe, the ultimate state desired, called Nirvana. Thus, Shiva is quite compatible with both Satanism and the New Age Movement.
Now, let us examine yet another photograph of Shiva from the Internet, and study the notes attending the photograph.
"Shiva - Shakti - The Spousal pair Shiva-Shakti (Yab-Yum) is a tantric consort image. At once the most sacred and the most mysterious path to higher consciousness, tantra is the Sacred Union of opposites. Taoists refer to these energies as yin (from yoni, i.e., the active principle) and yang (the recumbent principle). Bly, Jung and Nin point out that each individual must achieve an inner marriage of their masculine and feminine natures to encounter true balance. Hindu consort pairs epitomizing this psychic symbolism are superb representations of the social, sexual, and sacred interconnectedness of women and men. This conjunction of Shiva and Shakti expresses the sacredness of sexuality as a path to spiritual union."
What on Earth is a "tantric consort image"? Hold on to your hats, because once you know, you will be changed forever by your opinion of the Roman Catholic Church and its Pope! The New Age Dictionary defines "tantra" as, "meditative sexual union (the female is active, male passive, in Hindu tantra; the male active, the female passive, in Buddhist tantra)." [Page 195]
The word "consort" also has great meaning when used in this context. The Tormont Webster's Illustrated Dictionary defines "consort" as a "companion or partner". Thus, the term "tantric consort" literally means engaging in sex with a partner as a means of worshipping their god! Folks, this is pure Satanism. If you really want an eye-opening experience, go into a New Age bookstore and look at the books on Tantric Sex. You will discover page after page of drawings that can only be described as pornographic, accompanied by lurid writing that would make any author of pornographic literature proud. This is all done in the name of "worship" and "religion". This perverted worship is nothing more than the full Biblical definition of Paganism, "Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up ..." [Romans 1:25-26a]. This religion is literally worshipping the creature through sex, rather than the Creator. Why is Pope John Paul II fraternizing with people that worship through sex? Isn't he celibate, and doesn't his Roman Catholic Church uphold "Family Values" as taught in the Bible? Questions like these could go on forever., and probably should.
"Shiva With Nandi - Godhead as Meditative Bliss. The bull Nandi is Shiva in his animal form as well as the mount upon which the Great God rides. The sexually potent bull is an expression of Shiva's cosmic creative energy, yet his bestial instincts are kept reined in. In a similar manner Shiva's yogic asceticism guarantees release from worldly delusion and suffering. Nandi (his name means giving joy) is Shiva's greatest devotee. This image evolved from a prehistoric representation (Shiva Pasupati) in which the god was a horned fertility deity; his worship was central in the ancient Mohenjo Daro civilization of the Indus valley."
In this picture, we see Shiva in female form, with the "sexually potent bull" at her side, whom she rides; yet, we are assured that no bestiality is occurring here, even though the Shiva bull evidently has feelings for Shiva. At the end of this little write-up, we see the tie between this bull and the Satanic "horned deity". Again, we are confronted by the fact that Shiva is nothing more than Satanism with a slightly different mask than the ones worn by traditional Satanists.
"Shiva - Mahadev - Symbol of inner balance. Lord of creation and destruction, here pictured in his aspect as yogi-ascetic. Lotus-seated upon a tiger skin, third eye focused in meditation, he dispassionately oversees the creation and disintegration of the material universe. From his matted locks springs the Ganges, symbolic of fertility and purification. His serpent necklace implies the life force that underlies all being. A Dravidian epoch Green Man , Shiva's worship predates 5000 BCE. The crescent moon in his hair and trisula markings on his forehead signify his horned Minotaur aspect.
In this picture, we see Shiva in male form, and we can clearly see the type of markings which this Shiva priestess is placing upon the forehead of Pope John Paul II. Notice that this write-up accompanying the picture speaks of the "third eye focused in meditation". Occultists all over the world, in every age, have taught of the supreme importance of raising your consciousness to the point where your Third Eye is opened. Let us turn again to the New Age Dictionary for a more complete definition. "Third Eye, organ of intuition, located between the eyebrows; sixth chakra divided into five categories by the Tibetans: 1) Eyes of Instinct , supernormal range of vision like a bird; 2) Celestial Eyes , taking in heaven, Earth, past and future birth; 3) Eyes of Truth , taking in world epics; 4) Divine Eyes , taking in millions of world periods; 5) Eyes of Buddhas , taking in eternity." [Page 200]
Adolf Hitler was supremely interested in achieving the complete opening of his Third Eye, during his time of Satanic spiritual training in the Thule Society, training which was indispensable in making him the Child of Hell he turned out to be. The teaching of the Third Eye is Satanism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and New Age all rolled into one. What is Pope John Paul II doing submitting himself to a priestess of such an occultic, Satanic religion?
This newsletter of the Former Catholics For Christ adds another interesting tidbit of information concerning the Shiva religion. "According to Carl Matrisciana's Gods of the New Age (1985), the Shivites are 'recognizable by the three horizontal lines painted on their forehead. These disciples of the god Shiva consider madness -- one of Shiva's attributes -- to be one of the highest levels of spirituality! Many Hindus believe insanity to be a form of god-consciousness.' "
Once again we behold the face of Satanism. The Bible speaks over and over again of a sound mind as being one of the attributes of Godliness. Listen:
"7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind ." [2 Timothy 1:7]
"And they come to Jesus, and see him that was possessed with the devil, and had the legion, sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind : and they were afraid." [Mark 5:15; Luke 8:35 also]. In this section, we see that Jesus cast out a legion of demons possessing a man. One of the major attributes of this demon possessed man was that he was totally deranged. Conversely, once Jesus cast out the demons, the man was restored to his "right mind".
"And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient" [Romans 1:28] All people involved heavily in the occult are in danger of being "given over" by God to a reprobate mind .
"Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled. They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate ." [Titus 2:15-16] Again, these verses clearly and accurately describe the potential insanity of people who have rejected God and given themselves over to the practice of the Occult, in whatever form.
God is a God of a sound, sane mind, while Satan is the god of insanity. One of the major ways in which the world will be impacted once the Rapture of the Church occurs is that the many ways in which the Holy Spirit restrains evil in this age will be removed. Then, Satan will be allowed much more free rein. You will see many more instances where people's minds will go haywire, because the mind is that part of our bodies where we were "created in the image of God". Therefore, Satan hates it exceedingly. The other part of our being created in the image of God is our eternal soul, which Satan cannot touch.
Now, let us carefully review what we have just learned in this article.
We have learned that Pope John Paul II participated in a ceremony in which he allowed a Shiva priestess to place the traditional Shiva parallel markings on his forehead. This places the Pope in submission to this priestess during this ceremony, and it places Papal acceptance upon the Pagan religion of Shiva.
We have learned that the religion of Shiva is very Satanic through and through, and that it worships its god through the practice of Tantric Sex.
Through this act of accepting this mark on his forehead, the Pope has signaled his acceptance of Shiva as a religion just as valid as Christianity.
Since Shiva has much in common with the New Age religion, the Pope has signaled his acceptance of the New Age as a religion just as valid as Christianity. Indeed, in the years before she died, Mother Teresa attended several New Age conferences in which she was usually a featured speaker. In NEWS1020 , "Gorbachev More Dangerous Than Ever, Part 1", and in NEWS1021 , "Part 2", we covered the global conference of New Age and New World Order leaders for a week long conference in San Francisco. This conference was called in order to facilitate a smooth transition to the New World Order by the year 2000. The people attending read like a Who's Who List of key New World Order leaders. The only representative of the Roman Catholic Church was Mother Teresa.
In NEWS1052 , "Seminar Notes: House of Theosophy", I reported that the New England Director of the House of Theosophy, who had spent several years as a planning member on the "New Jerusalem Covenant Project", had reported several very interesting things about the Roman Catholic Pope. Specifically, we report how the Pope fits into the Plan for the implementation of the New World Order Religion.
The Pope is a "Proper Receptor" to the New Age Christ. This statement means that the Pope will have no trouble accepting Antichrist when he arises. The only way that could happen is if he is just as Pagan in his heart of hearts as will be Antichrist.
After Antichrist arises, the Pope will convene a special global religious conference in Jerusalem in which he will announce that all of the world's religions are now combined into one, and that he is their supreme leader.
These revelations place the Pope squarely in the role of the Biblical False Prophet. Let us examine the passage in Revelation 13 that describes this False Prophet, so you can decide for yourselves whether the Pope fulfills this prophecy.
Rev 13:11 describes the False Prophet as he makes his appearance in this capacity. " And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon." In other words, the Biblical False Prophet will claim to be Christian and will be accepted by the vast majority of people on Earth, as a Christian ["Having two horns like a lamb" clearly refers to a leader that claims to know and serve Jesus Christ]. However, this False Prophet will be a "dragon" at heart, meaning that he will be Satanic in his heart. He will be a worshipper of Pagan gods and will embrace their worldview and their religious practices. This ceremony where Pope John Paul II accepts the Shiva parallel marks on his forehead is the most graphic illustration yet that the Roman Pontiff fulfills this Biblical prophecy perfectly.
Rev 13:12-14 foretells that the False Prophet will be able to perform all of the lying signs and wonders that Antichrist can perform, and that he will aid Antichrist in deceiving the peoples of the world into worshipping him. "And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast ... And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast."
Therefore, the False Prophet will simply be another Antichrist figure in his heart of hearts. He will play a major role in deceiving all the peoples of the world into worshipping Antichrist. From Martin Luther [1520 A.D.] to Dr. Alexander Hislop [late 1800's], Protestant leaders have identified the Roman Catholic Pope as the Biblical False Prophet. They based their conclusions on the Paganism of the Catholic Church and on several prophecies which provide great detail concerning the False Prophet, his church, and the city in which he rules.
Now, the events occurring in front of our very eyes, in our daily news, are providing proof that this early identification of the Pontiff as the False Prophet is absolutely true. Not only does the Roman Catholic Church contain much Pagan doctrine, not only does the Pope now utilize the Satanic Bent Cross instead of the traditional Crucifix, but now we see him accepting the Shiva Religion on an equal basis with Christianity. Remember the End Times prophecy concerning discernment, and apply it to this situation. " Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world." [1 John 4:1] When we "try" this spirit, we find it to be of Satan, not God.
Friends, God is trying to get our attention here. He is trying to show us the truth of the situation facing the world today. Not only is He lining up all the prophesied "signs and wonders", but He is trying mightily to show us the identification of the False Prophet. The actual person who will be the False Prophet may not be John Paul II, but he will be the Roman Catholic Pope!
If you are a Roman Catholic, please understand that we do not hate you, nor do we hate Roman Catholicism. Our hearts go out to you, because your eternal soul is at stake. If you continue to follow Roman Catholicism, you will be eternally lost, because Catholic doctrine does not teach Saving Faith. Further, the Pope is now revealed as the Satanic False Prophet. You will be lead straight into Hell. Please turn now to the simple Salvation Plan offered in Scripture, and come to know the true power of the Holy Spirit.
Everyone who reads this article should understand that they have just viewed a most incredible "sign" of the impending End of the Age possible. They have just viewed the unmasking of the Roman Pontiff as the False Prophet he truly is.
