Roman Emperor Constantine

Updated on May 14, 2015

Constantine Established the Roman Catholic Church

The facts are that Claudius Constantine established the Roman Catholic Religion in 325 AC (after Caesar). He was followed by Jerome who compiled and partly wrote the New Testament while changing many parts of the Old Testament to make the two line up. Many others have changed large parts of it since,

The establishment of the Roman Catholic Church by Constantine is something the Church would rather cover up and never have it revealed. It took months, in fact years, of research to establish the facts. The conspiracy that followed its formation is but a small part of the intrigue and mystery that the religion stands on.

Born at Nis (York in England) in 280AD he was the son of Emperor Constantius and Helena. His history is mainly that of war, murder, intrigue and overthrow but this side of his character is overlooked because he supposedly resurrected Christianity. In fact what he did was to bring about the formation of the Roman Catholic Church. This lens is about facts you never knew concerning Constantine and what he did.

Some call him a saint for this action others call him a vicious dictator who might vie with Hitler, Idi Amin or Sadam Hussein for ruthlessness and his anti humane attitude towards others. Whatever you call him he was anything but a spiritual person. The family of Emperor Constantine would be the first to agree with me on that.

Interest in him was aroused by the Spirit. One morning in a vision while dressing and before my eyes was this message in large capital letters CONSTANTINE IS 666. Without former knowledge of his life and the murderous reign he conducted the research undertaken that day and since would prove that he is indeed one of the most evil men who ever lived.

CONSTANTINE IS 666

These words stood up in the air before my eyes while I was dressing one morning c30 years ago.

I had no idea what it meant or why this message was given to me.

What followed the vision proved that Constantine was evil and far worse than Hitler. He established a religion on his ideas for more power and control

The effect of his presence and laws remain and are killing the world

About Emperor Constantine - the Son of Constantius

History of Constantine and why he is 666 in the bible

First I got the encyclopedia and opened it at Constantine. Yes, he was the son of Constantius. Gibbons Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire told me more about Constantius. The Roman Empire was at a cross roads when suddenly the father died after being Caesar for only 14 months.

Seizing the moment Constantine, a young charismatic prince, convinced his troops to follow him as emperor and almost before his father's body was cold he was declared as such. The semantics of the occasion matter little. The facts are that Diocletian and Galerius, the two senior Caesars, were aging and at odds with each other. One retired then came back, the other was disturbed and upset at just about everything according to Gibbons. So just how much they bothered about what was going on is anyone's guess.

At around the same time as Constantine took (usurped) the throne of the west Maximium, another Caesar, appointed his son Maxentius to rule over Rome. This challenged Constantine to a fight that would eventually bring about an order that has lasted for almost 2,000 years.

The history of his exploits are written of as blood thirsty campaigns through which he took the lives of hundreds of thousands of his so-called enemies. You can align him with Saddam Hussein, Mugarbe and many other dictators who seize power and kill off the masses who might try to overthrow them. The same is happening again in countries like Syria, North Korea and elsewhere. The more blood he spilled the greater he became in historic terms. Isn't that amazing?

It was usual to build a triumphal arch after such victories. They are testimony to the nature of Romans in general, as also are places like the Colosseum.

Not many days before this a vision was given to me of a man on a cross. His head was hanging when he lifted it called my name and said "Take me off the cross" At that time I had no inkling of what was to come or how this commission would be accomplished. But now I was going to find out something so terrible and so tragic that it changed the world.

History of Constantine After He Became Emperor

Emperor Constantine and his Vision of the Cross in the Sun

Riding at speed across the countryside towards Rome for a show-down with Maxentius there are several versions of the so-called vision given to him of his coming victory. With him and loyal to the core was Eusebius, his trusted bishop. He gave 2 versions of what happened with the 2nd more elaborate than the first. The story goes that Constantine saw the cross in the setting sun and heard the words "in this sign conquer."

The facts are that the cross is a sign often seen as the sun crosses the horizon in either direction, so it is not surprising that the claim was made. As to the words they could have been nothing more than conjecture or the mind playing tricks, if they occurred at all. They may also have been a deliberate lie on the part of Eusebius who had a lot to do with the formation of Constantine's religion a few years later.

In recent times it has been claimed that Eusebius's writings are forgeries. That might explain a lot as the Catholic Church hierarchy has distanced itself from the violence of Constantine in order to make him appear saint like.

If one takes it as read, however, Eusebius did not make the vision known publicly until after Constantine's death when he had more to gain by it. Meanwhile the battle of the Milvian Bridge took place on October 28th 312. It was a blood bath and Maxentius and his army of some 25,000 were annihilated.

Riding triumphantly into Rome it is claimed that Constantine had crosses erected throughout the streets to celebrate his victory. This was seized upon by later Christian historians as a sign that the Emperor was now a disciple of Christ. But that is far from true.

Writing in 310 Eumerius notes that Constantine had statues of the gods (sun gods) borne before him and was a conspicuous devotee of Apollo. Eusebius, on the other hand, called him "the most pious son of a most pious and prudent father" with claims that Constantius was, at heart, a Christian.

He also notes that Constantine Clorus's name is on edicts of persecution. History records that he had many tortured, exiled and jailed as part of his tirade against them.

Nothing could be further from the truth then that Constantine was a follower of Jesus Christ, which was part of his own deception and conspiracy. He was, until his death, dedicated to Apollo the Sun god according to those who knew him, He gave gifts to the temple of the Sun god and proclaimed himself the Son of Apollo. Everything about him followed the ways of the traditional Imperial Religion.

Eusebius, the ever deceitful bishop, claimed he was converted on his deathbed, or at least that's what someone applied to his writings. We know, however, that they are fraudulent documents so who made this claim? That we may never know and it is of not much consequence in the scheme of things.

Author, H. Mattingly, Oxford Clement Press 1948, notes that documents credited to Eusebius have been branded forgeries. he also notes that so called Christian symbols on the reverse side of coins minted under Constantine are, in fact, pagan symbols that are ambiguous. The truth is that the Christian religion, namely the Catholic Church of Constantine, adopted many pagan symbols as its own so that they could claim origins prior to when the Catholic Church was founded.

It was all to do with trickery, ignorance and power. Emperor Claudius Constantine had it all and could implement the laws to force acceptance.

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 whose deadly wound was healed.

And (he) 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: saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by the sword, and did live.

And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak. and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killded. Revelation 13:12-15

This bible prophecy declares that Constantine invented Jesus Christ and far from converting to Christianity it emerged following his establishment of the Catholic Church. That explains why the characteristics of the Divine changed when the New Testament came into being at the end of the 4th century. It was based on what Constantine had put in place.

We don't know how many died during his reign for not obeying his orders but we do know that many were tortured, maimed, killed and exiled for not worshiping his image, the cross and then Jesus Christ. History records the devastation the church of Constantine has performed over centuries of raids and torture against non conformers to its gods. To this day his religious leader, the Pope, claims to speak for Jesus Christ and to possess the keys to heaven and hell, neither of which exist.

The term 'Christian' had been around for centuries prior to Constantine's day. Plato had referred to it some 600 years before and had decided that the soul was the image of the body on which stains appear as sins that can be read by God after death

The Fall of 5 Roman Caesars

Emperor Constantine secured sole rule of the Roman Empire

According to contemporary authors of his day Constantine started off with a scheme in mind to become the sole ruler of the Roman Empire. In his way were 5 other Caesars. He disposed of one of them, his own brother-in-law, at the Milvian Bridge. He then stole his throne to become ruler of Rome. Over the next decade all other Emperors fell, either by the sword or retirement.

By 320AD only the Emperor who ruled the east, Valerius, stood in his way. Constantine, ever crafty, appointed Crispus, his son, as a Caesar to lead an army. The battle that ensued was fought at sea. Outflanked the latter succumbed, Not satisfied with the death of over 25,000 men the victor went for the entire family, including the children, cousins and anyone else who might rise up to claim the now vacant throne.

Following this Constantine murdered his own wife, Fausta, who was locked in the bath heated to a high degree. She was the mother of Crispus who was also murdered at the hands of his father on the grounds that he had debauched his mother-in-law. Now sole emperor Constantine married Constantia.

Success at last. Constantine was sole Emperor and ruler of everything from the far west coast of England to the far eastern regions of Persia. From what is now Germany to the southern reaches of North Africa and he had the iron hand and support to carry it through. But he needed one other thing. It is interesting that another tyrant, Alexandria, the Macedonian king did much the same thing c.600 years earlier.

From reports and diaries of his cohorts Constantine had obviously hatched his plan long before he first seized the throne for contemporary critics wrote about him. One of these was Zosimius the pagan and reportedly the most learned man in Greece. He noted that "Constantine was no longer concealing his evil disposition and vicious intent but acted as he pleased without control. When he came to Rome he was filled with arrogance and pride. (Huttman 1914)

Another contemporary Sozoman noted "I think that Constantine changed the most notable symbol of Roman power (the cross) into the sign of Christ." as also noted by Huttman.

There are many other reports along the same lines. In reading them I was stunned by the conspiracy that took place in the years following his rise to the purple. Constantine obviously had just one plan in mind and he knew how to carry it out. So he rode over the bodies of his relatives, soldiers, enemy armies, several Caesars and other contemporaries to sole rule with one last act to follow.

Constantine was a murderer of hundreds of thousands of people, including women and children and he did not stop when it came to his own family. After Crispus and before his own death he wrote notes to ensure that only his 3 sons would survive to claim the throne. He purported treason and that he had been poisoned to ensure the deaths of all nephews, cousins, uncles and anyone else with a link to him.

Could a Murderer Like Constantine Speak for God?

Or is his church an extension of himself?

"Emperor Constantine The Murderer"

He was unscrupulous, determined, charismatic, handsome, and had a precedence, set by the sun worshipping religions of Rome and Egypt, to follow.

They pointed the way to what he had to do.

The Catholic Church of Constantine adopted the laws and rituals of these other religions including forgiveness of sins and the notions of heaven and hell along with a male Father God,which also does not exist.

The Builders of Rome

Why the city is on seven hills

Everyone has wanted to know who is 666, The puzzle has been around for some 2000 years without even a hint of a solution. The bible states that the man called by this number has full control of the world. This is believable when one considers how the world is run, of the effects of drugs, wars, corruption and so on. One of the most corrupt organizations is the Mafia. Its tentacles have spread to just about every country and it is Italian in origin and design.

One day a vision showed me the city of Rome and the Vatican. Suddenly from that point came a black ribbon and it stretched to Sicily, the home of the Mafia, then it suddenly increased in size and wrapped around and around the world until there was nothing but blackness over it. In another vision I was lifted high above the earth and looked down on a world of black. Nothing could cut through it. Suddenly a bright light shot out from where I was standing and it pierced the blackness. Underneath it the light increased in size and expanded to the point where it broke the blackness into small pieces which then floated off into space. The earth was left shining, clean and returned to the usual blue color we associate with it.

These visions only made sense when the final piece of the puzzle slipped into place. That happened after genetic markers confirmed that Romans were descended from Assyrians. The Capital city of Assyria, in the time of the Amors, was 'MARI'. It was built on seven hills, which is relevant to other cities they built. The Amors were raiders, murderers and sun worshippers. 'Mari' and 'mary' are identical and this was an old term for the 'sun'. It was this persona that was the Mother God of the Amors.

They raided and destroyed the Egyptian Empire and struck out across the Mediterranean where they lived in groups and were later known as the 'Mors' or 'Moors'. 'Amor' reversed is 'Roma', the Capital of Italy and it was here that they founded a new colony sometime around the 6th-7thCBC. This city also comprises seven hills in their tradition for the number represented the seven mounts, hills and peaks of the seven sided star. It is this same symbol that is used worldwide for law enforcement because the sun handed down the law.

'Amor' is also the root of 'amore', the Italian word for 'love' and the Mother god represented love. In Egypt she was Isis and in Persia Astar or 'Ashtarith'. 'A-star' means 'powerful star'. She was responsible, in their view, for all life and death. When 'she' disappeared in winter the life of the planet disappeared with her. Animals died or hibernated and humans took to caves or other shelters while plants either died or lost their leaves so they appeared dead and were barren of fruit. In the spring all life returned or resurrected.

When she returned in March as 'I-star' or 'eye-star' it gave rise to 'Easter'. The time was marked by the spring equinox. There is much more about this in my book "How 666 Stole Jesus" which also explains the orgies and rituals that took place around the empire, including cakes distributed to the public in the name of Anna, another term for sun. It is from this that the word 'honor' was derived as well as 'annual', 'annum' and 'anus', the shape of which resembles a star.

Then my research took me further. The genetic markers of the Romans matched perfectly with those of the Amors, who, as Arabs, have straight black hair, brown eyes, brown skin, and among other features is a hooked nose. Compare that with the statue of Constantine above. Northern Italians are fair haired blue eyed descendants of the Celts and Gauls, the original occupiers of what is now Italy

Now the Assyrian numbering system, that was shown to me in the encyclopedia, made sense, I applied it to the English alphabet and found that Constantine comes out a long way from 666. But then I discovered something intriguing. Constant-ius and Constant-ine are the same name 'Constant', which is an English name. Both these Caesars were of England. Constantius was emperor of Britain when he died and his place taken over by Constantine. The endings simply mean 'of' or 'by'. The Roman versions of their names need not apply. Son Constantine was Constant II and the numbers of this name plus the 2 add up to 666. For more on this see the book where it is detailed more thoroughly.

Constantine was Constant II of England and his number adds up to 666 in the Assyrian numbering system. His murderous barbaric raids and attitude towards human life matches the Amors perfectly.

Constantine Invented Jesus Christ - Revelation 13:13-18

He had power to deceive the world

Not many people understand the Book of Revelation because it can be interpreted in many ways. But there are some passages which are non ambiguous and this is one of them:

And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast . . .

And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do . . saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. Revelation 13:12-15

Constantine had already stopped the annual crucifixion of god-men, which saw scapegoats taken on the Ides, i.e. 15th of March, to be kept for a week so as to be prepared to accept their fate and become the mate to the Mother god, Mary. The crucifixion took place on the 22nd March, the Equinox. This is a term composed of 'i-quin-ox' because it was the marriage of the 'Eye Queen' or Sun of the returning sun star to the O-X, or Circle and cross. He became the 'Savior god' who would then be expected to resurrect three days later on 25th March as her consort.

Constantine had the time of Easter altered to the first new moon after the equinox instead of on the day itself. He altered the time of 'noon', which was the old term for 'dawn' and the usual time of execution, to midday. This covered the origin of the event so that it was harder to associate the image he promoted to the old traditions.

The crucified savior is the 'O-X' which means 'circle of the cross' and it is through the circle that his 'spirit' was sent to be with her. 'E-quin' is the same as 'equine' which means 'horse', the symbol of Mother god in antiquity. Quin is the origin of 'queen'. White horses were traditionally kept by temples throughout Europe and they were sacrificed at the time of execution so the man and his heavenly "wife", i.e. the sun, could rise together. Horses were carved in chalk around the English countryside near sacred sites.

In some cultures, such as in Nordic poems and in details found elsewhere, the horse was cooked in a pot of water in which the king immersed himself and drank of the liquid. This symbolized his marriage to Mother god while the scapegoat rose in his place until his own death occurred by natural means in the future.

Every year there were new scapegoats. Rock art in this region show the men, often three at a time, rising upwards clinging to the circle/cross symbol as a kite. They had heads like birds, wings as angels, and huge erect penises to indicate their suitability as consorts. This artwork predates any Christian influence in the region. It proves that the concept of angels had been around for many thousands of years. One such angel stands to the rear of a horse with a penis pointed to its vagina.

People could touch scapegoats so that their 'misdeeds' would be removed, thus the idea that ones sins can be forgiven. Once crucified the flesh and blood of the god-man was consumed so people imbibed his spirit into themselves. They 'massed' around his body in order to do so. This practice was also observed among the Plains Indians of North America where flesh was ripped from the victim before he died and was consumed as he watched. There is much documented evidence of this type of thing occurring elsewhere and also the pleasure men felt at dying in this way, in my book.

Because Mother God was the horse the lawmakers wear horsehair wigs as a symbol they speak for her. In many courts today, particularly in England the horsehair wig survives. The horse was called 'Magi' or 'Mother god's eye' and it is from this that the term 'majesty' comes for king. It also explains why women were never acceptable as reigning monarchs, they could not be married to Mary, from which the term 'marry' is derived.

By abolishing the old ways Constantine prepared the ground for his new religion. He had the power to force its acceptance as he had already removed anyone who would object. He also had strong allies in his court to make it happen. He called the meeting, the Council of Nicaea, and sent orders to every religious leader to attend, It was to be a joint confirmation of his will.

The gathering of bishops

There is not much information available about this meeting as most of it was erased by the Church's founding fathers who had a lot to hide. But some excellent scholars have pieced it together and know that on one side it was a collection of Constantine's men, who were well dressed, educated and with the ear of the Emperor. On the other side sat the rabble who, by their appearance, were persecuted and mostly uneducated members of different religious orders from around the Empire. The complete collection is in the book. The event was held in the street with onlookers able to get a peek at the proceedings.

One thing was of particular note. Most of the bishops who attended had their 'boys' with them with whom they slept. This is something the Church stilt cannot deal with as paedophilia and homosexuality is rife among its priests. It is so bad that Australians have demanded a special tribunal to look into the activities that the hierarchy covers up and hides the evidence from investigators.

The poor members of the group were mainly from sun worshiping backgrounds. Some were ex slaves, others ex-convicts and still others comprised the Arians, Donatists, Copts and Gnostics. They came from as far afield as the border with India, Egypt, the Sahara Desert, Persia, England, Africa, Greece and all places in between. It was impossible for them to compete in debate with those who supported Constantine. They had neither the skill nor knowledge and if they did stand up to talk they were either booed out of the meeting or even faced execution afterwards.

The very sight of their emperor amongst them would have sent many into shock. He represented divine power and one would expect you could feel the majesty surrounding him. One would automatically bow to this and be intimidated by it. He was no doubt surrounded by guards and beautifully dressed and perfumed dignitaries. The others, on the other hand, would have been dressed in common clothes with many probably some in tatters.

Aside from his personal delegates none had been close to an emperor before and many probably had never seen him in the flesh. Some had been severely tortured at his command. Some had an eye burned out, some had their leg ligaments cut, and other injuries from burns and torture left many a cripple. This was the power enforced by him to force worship of the cross that Constantine erected as a symbol of his new religion.

Before the meeting ended some delegates were murdered for their outspokenness. One of these was Arias who had dared bring his book and then flay it and his ideas around. Others simply disappeared never to be seen again.

The main problem for the council and one they pondered over for days was to decide on the personification of the Sun of the Sun. This was later renamed the Son of God. For centuries men had tried to work this out and Plato proposed that light could take any shape and could, therefore, assume the shape of a man. Apollo was an example of the man called the 'Sun of the sun” and Constantine called himself Son of Apollo. But how did the sun become the man? That was the tricky bit and beyond this meeting to resolve.

The Egyptians had in their religious mythology a story that Isis impregnated herself with the severed penis of Osirus to produce 'Horus'. Note that 'horus' is the same as 'horse' in translation and this was the symbol of the sun. Emperors loved to ride white horses and even Napoleon stuck to this tradition as it represents the husband and wife team of the heavens. This is recognised in the bible.

And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse: and he that sat thereon was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns: and he had a name written, hat no man knew, but he himself. Revelation 19:11,12

Only a king can make war but the symbolic description means all kings because they wear many crowns. They are of many names so no one can say who they are. Constantine established the way of monarchy and inheritance and it remains today, even to the point of kings wearing red and purple garments. The Roman red was actually purple.

The Council pondered the big questions. If he (the sun of the sun) was born how, when and where did this happen? There were many myths about this. Moses was one, Baccus another. In the case of Moses the sun's reflection was found in the water of the Nile and was taken by the princess to be reared in secret in the palace until he made his appearance later as a full grown man. But Moses could not speak because the sun cannot speak. But he supposedly worked miracles, spoke to God, which no one else could do, delivered the Ten Commandments and then freed the Jews from captivity. Archaeology does not support the story of the migration of Israelite s from Egypt, nor the parting of the Red Sea. Even the Egyptian Pharaoh of the day was not the same as in the story.

The Council faced other problems such as that of the Trinity. How could the Son be also the father and what was the Spirit of God and how did this fit in? These questions were not resolved by the time the meeting ended. In fact it would be some forty or more years later before the Church could put forward a decent proposal on these matters.

The delegates went home with the new religion impressed upon them and a creed. But they had no written text and most of them could not read anyway. There was no conformity of views, no definite proposal other than they now had the authority to execute anyone who did not worship the cross. They could also torture, maim, exile or do other things to dissenters. This was the start of the Roman Catholic Church.

From it has grown many offshoot religions who have stuck with the mythology of Jesus Christ and the crucified Savour. Couple with this is the belief in heaven and hell and of the myriad of devils, angels and saints which plague the rational thinking of most. The thought that one can have in the after-life riches and pleasures they could not have or would want to keep from this life is appealing and provides hope for those who have no other answers.

Constantine built the first Vatican on the site of the temple to Jupiter, whom he declared the founder of the new religion or 'the rock' on which it stands. There is no [j] or [u] in Italian and this would have been written as 'I'pita' meaning the 'eye of pita'. J'piter' became "Peter' in later doctrines and the people were more inclined to accept the new religion if it was a continuation of the old. The bricks in the building were stamped with his initials CC for Constantine Clorus. You can read more about this in my book

The Power of Roman Caesars

Emperor Constantine had the power to Deceive

If there had been other Caesars to oppose him Constantine would never have got away with this. That's why he removed all opponents. He also had a determination to use religion to strengthen his grip on power. What he set up would bring unity to a highly disorganized, fractured and confused medley of doctrines that were so disjointed and incoherent as to make the governing of some areas difficult. By using a force like the threat of eternal punishment exercised by his new religious body he knew he could keep the empire together.

Alfoldi (1948:271) notes that what Constantine did was recorded by his contemporaries as "an ingenious trick to cheat the masses." There is much recorded by them about the religious intent of the emperor which is best summed up in these words " . . . the written declarations of Constantine. . . the dogmatic foundations of Christianity were a mystery even to him. At the time everyone believed that you could bring the supernatural powers into your service by magic signs, formulas and rites. Feverish then was the quest for such miraculous forms and devices. The Church could not escape from this fog. Eusebius described the cross as a magic sign while victory of the ruler decided the righteousness of his religion. The Christianity of Constantine was wrapped in darkness of superstition.

Leitzmann (cited Alfoldi) recorded that "there is a line running straight from Constantine's youth to his death and the same unity may be seen in his religious policy as in his political activity. He was a man of a single mould. He knew from the first what he meant to do and he had the strength to do it. Constantine has iron will that led him over the corpses of his colleagues to sole rule."

Following the foundation of his religion his mother, Helena, the daughter of a fishmonger, went to Jerusalem and returned with the nails that supposedly held Christ to the cross, wood claimed to be of the original cross, some milk from his mother's breasts, and she identified the place of crucifixion and the place where the body was placed. All this some 300 years after the supposed event took place. This would have been miraculous if true as there was no means to preserve these things and no evidence that they in fact existed.

Constantine then build the church of the Holy Sepulchre and other such places to cement these sites as places of Christian worship. The Catholic Church still has these so-called relics as part of its collection of mementos. These places had long been used for the crucifixion of god-men who supposedly resurrected with the sun into heaven. The whole thing was trickery.

The cross of the sun was represented in 2 ways. Either as an [X] or a [+] and the common term for the god-man was the 'criss-cross'. He was the cross on the cross and when the two symbols are juxtaposed they form the eight pointed star used by kings as a sign of their divinity. The same symbol is used on the pope's garments and in other places as an insignia to impress the message that these people speak as a Christ. 'Criss cross' is also the origin of 'Chris-+' or 'Chris-t'. The name 'Jesus' is from "i-s" or 'eye of light' and it is the oldest term for 'spirit'. Doubled it is 'Isis' the name of the Egyptian 'mother god' and as 'Issi' it is declared in the bible as the name of God . And it shall be in that day . . . that thou shalt call me Issi and no more 'baali' Hosea 2:16

My research determined that kings from Europe, Egypt, Assyria and Mexico, among others, used the threat of eternal punishment and that of eternal rewards in heaven to ensure dedication to their cause. Men who had nothing on earth and who lived in poverty could get huge rewards in the after-life if they gave their lives on the battlefield for their king. It worked then and it works now. It is used by religions to ensure loyalty among their followers and the catholic church goes one step further by proclaiming that Jesus Christ is its founder and that they have the keys to heaven and the right to send anyone who is not a Catholic to hell. The problem is no one has ever found heaven or hell as they exist only in people' imagination - but it works

Spirit Teaching for Last Days

Two years of never putting the bible down during my waking hours

Back and forth I was led to examine, mark out and be shown the truth of what this book is about. There are parts that are pure fiction, like the New Testament, and there are spiritual bits where we were told the identity of the beast and of the work he would do. There are other passages that predict this knowledge being exposed and just who would do it.

When I was given the message that Constantine is 666 I asked the Spirit to show me where in the bible it says that I will do this. I was told to get the book and it opened in my hands and I read:

How long will you go about, O thou backsliding Israel (changed to daughter), For God has created a new things in the world, a woman shall compass a man. (Jeremiah 31:22)

During my studies the name Israel was shown to me as 'i-s-ra-el' which means 'eye's light power with God'. During other sessions with the Spirit I learned that Israel has nothing to do with the Jews but only with the spiritual people who are able to see things from God, like visions and receive prophecy. These are the people whom religion condemns and calls blasphemers or 'of the devil'. They are the ones closest to the Spirit and it is they for whom my work is done. Israel has nothing to do with any religion and spiritual people are usually those who see it for what it is - a big fraud.

If you have read this far you may be of Israel and if you feel the energy then for sure you are. But there was a lot more to come on the emperor who cheated God and who stole the name Jesus. Having identified him and gotten the proof of just who he is and what he did it is astounding that this was kept hidden for so long.

But the Spirit determined that before the world ends, and it looks close now, that 666 will be identified and that his work will be undone. This is stated in the following passages from prophecies.

God has sworn, saying . . .

That I will break the Assyrian in my land, and upon my mountains will tread him underfoot: then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden from off their shoulders.

This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations. Isaiah 15:25,26

A noise shall come to the end of the earth; for God has a controversy with the nations, God will plead with all flesh, . . giving them that are wicked to the sword. Jeremiah 25:31

The Catholic Church, in keeping with the religions of Assyria and Egypt, have played up the role of the dead as powerful and claimed that they are miracle workers. They supposedly occupy the heavenly kingdom and those who pray to them are encouraged to ask for their help. But this is more trickery and the following prophecy states what God has in store for them:

All the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling fig from a fig tree Isaiah 4:34

As for the dead being able to heal I have seen more miracles of genuine spiritual healing in people whom God has sent me to than what Jesus Christ supposedly did in his time. But no religion is interested in these testimonies because they maintain that only their God heals. But where is that healing. I have never seen the Pope heal anyone. The dead cannot heal, they are nothing. From my experience the spiritual are reincarnated which the religions say cannot happen. But it does!

So will I break down the wall that ye have daubed with untempered mortar, and bring it down to the ground, so that the foundation thereof shall be discovered, and it shall fall and ye shall be consumed in the midst thereof: and ye shall know that I am God. Ezekiel 13:14

It was my first commission. "Tear down the wall of churches, go out to the people, bring back the young" as told here Now I have told you that God was never on a cross so I have taken the man off the cross so that all may see the Spirit as the real power in the universe. God made the Internet and this place to publish this story and already people are taking other works of mine and retelling them around the world. So the light is working under the darkness and is right now breaking it up.

In a vision I saw a line stretched out in front of me and along the line there were people. Far into the distance at the end of the line I saw the word Eve, In the middle of the line was the word NOON, and where I stood I saw the word EVENING. A bright light suddenly appeared that was brighter than the sun and it arched over the day to the beginning. Both the beginning and the end were brightly lit but in the middle it was dark and there, high above the crowd, was a man on a cross. The people were reaching up to him and there were huge numbers of them.

Later the bible opened at this passage and I read:

And it shall come to pass in that day that the light shall not be clear, nor dark:

But it shall be one day which is known to God, not day nor night: but it shall come to pass that at evening time it shall be light. Zechariah 14:6,7

      @tazzytamar: You have said a mouthful Anna. But there would have been someone else to take his place. The problem is the cover-up engaged in by church leaders. They must know the facts and yet they continue to preach the opposite.

      This was incredibly well written and extremely interesting, though also very sad. I feel so disappointed in so many ways about the Church. There are such good people in this world, but it seems that the evil always manage to do enough damage to cancel it out. Nominated for LOTD :) I can't help wondering what would have happened if Constantine had been killed it battle... What a different world we would live in...

      @anonymous: You are right to ask these questions. The New Testament is a separate document to Revelation. It came about through a spiritual revelation to an unknown prophet who was later given the name of John by the compilers of the book. It has strong spiritual links to it which the NT does not have and most of the latter's stories conflict with each other. For the rest of the answers please read the lens www.squidoo.com/who-wrote-the-new-testament

      skiesgreen, you state in your lens above that the New Testament is all fiction. Yet you quote Revelation in the N.T. to state your claim that Constantine is 666. Can you explain in a reply? Also, in light of the over 400 Old Testament prophecies of the Messiah which were plainly fulfilled in Jesus Christ explained in the New Testament, can you why you think the N.T. is fictional in a reply here?

      The Church was called Catholic about 200 years before Constantine. The church was seriously martyred prior to that man, and his war lost until he saw that cross. In gratitude he realized it was Jesus, the Church of the Christians, that saved his bacon. He is seriously misrepresented so often that people think that the disinfo is truth. Its too bad, too. At least Christians weren't martyred any longer, and the Church could pick up the pieces of the Roman Empire for the Lord.

      Although I do not agree with some of the theories set forth here .. there is a lot that I do agree upon. For example, the history of Constantine and the introduction of false worship into the RC church and in many churches that followed their lead.

      You did an excellent job of documenting the history of this time.
