Was Apostle Peter The First Pope Of The Roman Catholic Church As It Claims?








Say Something About Mohammedanism, And Will It Align Itself With Roman Catholicism At The End Time?

Question: Can you say something about 'Mohammedanism', and why God allowed such a brutal religion to come? And also about the Roman Catholic Church which claims Peter as its first pope? Will Mohammedanism and Roman Catholicism make a unholy alliance at the end time?

Answer: Greetings in Jesus wonderful name!

Dr. Henry H. Halley the author, minister, and Bible lecturer ordained to the ministry in 1898 wrote the following in his HALLEYS BIBLE HANDBOOK, "Mohammad. Born at Mecca (A.D. 570), grandson of Governor. In youth he visited Syria, came in contact with Christians and Jews, became filled with horror of Idolatry. In 610 he declared himself a Prophet, was rejected at Mecca, 622 fled to Medina, was received, became a warrior, and began to propagate his faith by the Sword, and we know it is not a religion of peace as Muslim people are made to believe by their Mullahs. 630 reentered Mecca as the head of an army, destroyed 360 Idols and became filled with enthusiasm for the destruction of Idolatry. Died 632. His successors were called Caliphs.

RAPID GROWTH

By 634 Syria was conquered; 637, Jerusalem; 638, Egypt; 640 Persia; 689, North Africa; 711, Spain. Thus within a short time the whole of Western Asia and North Africa, the cradle of Christianity, became Mohammedan.

Mohammedan appeared at a time when the Church had become Paganized with the worship of Images, Relics, Martyrs, Mary and the Saints. In a sense, Mohammedanism was a revolt against the Idolatry of the "Christian World"; a Divine judgment on a corrupt and degenerate Church. In itself, however, has proved a worse blight to the nations it conquered. It is a religion of Hate; was propagated by the Sword; has encouraged Slavery, Polygamy and the degradation of Womanhood.

In the Battle of Tours, France (A.D. 732), one of the decisive battles of the world, in it Charles Martel defeated the Moslem army, and saved Europe from Mohammedanism which was at that time sweeping the world like a tidal wave. But for that victory Christianity may have been completely submerged.

DOMINATION

Arabians dominated the Mohammedan world (622-1058). The capital was moved to Damascus (662); to Baghdad in 750, where it remained till 1258.

Turks have ruled the Mohammedan world from 1058 to modern times. They were far more intolerant and cruel than the Arabians. Their barbarous treatment of Christians in Palestine led to the Crusades.

Mongols, from central Asia, arrested Turkish rule under Genghis Khan (1206-1227), who, as the head of the vast armies, traversed with sword and torch a great part of Asia; 50,000 cities and towns were burned; 5,000,000 people murdered; in Asia Minor 630,000 Christians were butchered; Under Tamerlane (1336-1402), a similar hurricane of destruction, followed everywhere marked with ruined fields and burned villages and blood. At the gate of every city his custom was to build piles of thousands of heads: at Baghdad, 90,000.

FALL OF CONSTANTINOPLE

Fall of Constantinople (1453), to the Turks, brought to an end the Eastern Roman Empire, and jarred Europe with a second threat of Mohammedan control, which, later was stopped by John Sobieski in the battle of Vienna (1683).

The Papacy was a gradual development, first appearing as a World Power in the 6th Century A.D., reaching the height of its power in the 13th Century A.D., and thereafter declining in power from the 13th Century to the present.

ORIGINAL FORM OF CHURCH GOVERNMENT

At the close of the Apostolic age, Churches were independent one of another, each being shepherded by a board of Pastors. The main leader were made to be called Bishop. The others, later, were called Presbyters. Gradually the jurisdiction of Bishop came to include neighboring towns.


THE FIRST POPE

The word "Pope" means "Papa," "Father." At first it was applied to all western Bishops. But about A.D. 500 it began to be restricted to the Bishop of Rome, and soon, in common use, came to mean Universal Bishop. The Roman Catholic list of Popes includes the Bishops of Rome from the 1st Century onward. But for 500 years, Bishops of Rome were NOT POPES. The idea that the Bishop of Rome should have authority over the whole universal Church was a slow growth, bitterly contested at every step, and never has, at any time, been universally recognized."

What did Jesus tell about calling men on earth as 'Pope'? Here is what Jesus said, " 9 Do not call anyone on earth your father [(i.e.) Pope] ; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven... 11 But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant. 12 And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted." (Matt 23:9, 11-12). This is the issue with Roman Catholicism, they want to fit in the teaching of Jesus in to the mold they have created for their own Church, rather than surrendering to the clear instruction of Jesus Christ and let Him build His Church in God's order. So according to Jesus, when it comes to spiritual authority, nobody on earth should ever be called as Father, except the Father in heaven who has all authority in heaven and on earth, which has been given to Christ Jesus and no other man on earth after His resurrection, but Christ gives spiritual authority to the men and women chosen by Him and handpicked so that they might build His Church faithfully (Matt 28:18-20). Does Pope on earth abide by the teaching of Jesus? No he is disobedient and have built a harlot church for destruction. Even when slightly godly Popes rose up to correct these mistakes, the people who followed these deceit for ages, never let those Popes to bring a revolution and radically live for the teaching of Christ. So the blind leads the blind in the Catholic church (Matt 23:26-33; 15:14). Because all the Popes from the beginning exalted themselves instead of Christ and His teaching, the wrath and judgment of God is waiting to come upon this Catholic harlot church. Repent O Catholic Church and its members, follow Christ and give praise to your heavenly Father in Heaven, and call nobody as Pope except the one Great Pope in Heaven.

WAS PETER THE FIRST POPE?

The Roman Catholic tradition that Peter was the first Pope is purely fictional and simple, because there is not even a hint of it in the New Testament, and no historical evidence whatsoever, that Peter was at any time Bishop of Rome, nor do we see in his very hand written letter before his death, any claim of Universal Authority over the Church as the Popes have claimed for themselves. Instead Peter the apostle claim himself as one among the elders of the first Century Church, and further in his second and the last epistle Peter introduced himself only as "a bond servant and apostle of Jesus Christ" (1 Peter 5:1; 2 Peter 1:1). In fact he warned all of Church future leaders not to "lord it over God's flock, rather they should show themselves as examples to the flock." (1 Peter 5:3). Where does Pope stand if he considers himself as a leader of the Church? Nowhere near the Biblical standard set by the apostle Peter in the first century, instead the Roman Catholic Popes have done the exact opposite of what the apostle Peter has told them not to do, (i.e.) lord over the flock of God which is the Church.


THE HARLOT WOMAN RIDING ON THE SCARLET BEAST

We can see pictorially in the Book of Revelation, the revelation of the Harlot Woman the Catholic Church riding on the beast who had seven heads which are past kingdoms that ruled the world and ten horns who are ten kings who will come to rule for one hour with antichrist at the appointed end time (Rev 17:3, 9-11, 12). I believe that the Roman Empire out of which the Mohammedan Empires came, is the eight but it is of the Seven is going in to destruction (Rev 17:11). The ten kings who will receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast of Antichrist, will give their power and authority to him, these will fight against Christ and his followers to bring a intense persecution the world has never seen (Rev 17:13-15). So will the final Empire be a Islamic coalition with the European kings of the European Union? The trend of our times clearly points to such a coalition only!

Here we see a harlot woman, which means a unfaithful so called wife of Christ who sits in the city of Rome which includes Vatican, which ruled the world, will make friendship with the haters of Christ which includes the Mohammedan world at the end time (Rev 17:18). Just after this hellish partnership of deceit of one world religion and one world government gets going through the evil partnership between Pope and the Antichrist, during the Tribulation of those days (Mark 13:19, 21-22), as the Antichrist will have the upper hand in all things relating to power and authority over the whole world during this time (Rev 13:5, 7), he will hate the harlot church of Rome and will make her desolate forever to burn it completely down with fire within an hour of the single appointed day (Rev 17:16; 18:4-5, 10).

There will be many false Christs and false prophets who will rise and show great signs to deceive many, out of which Christ Jesus point to two situations where people will be told that the prophet Messiah of the world [(i.e.) the Muslim Mahdi] has arrived in the desert (Matt 24:26), but the catholic harlot church will point to the inner room where the final pope of the end time will reside and declare himself as the Christ incarnate who has come to rule the church in all authority (Matt 24:26). Mahdi (in popular Muslim belief) a spiritual and temporal leader who will rule before the end of the world and restore religion and justice and particularly (in Shiite belief) the twelfth imam, who is expected to return and triumph over injustice. Christ has already told all believers that when these things happen, not to believe these people who are deceiving and are being deceived, at this exact point of time the rapture of all believers in the TRUE CHURCH will happen as Christ has already warned and predicted (Matt 24:26, 27-28).

So the OPPORTUNISTIC UNHOLY alliance between MOHAMMEDANS AND CATHOLICS will bring the prophecies of the end time to exact fulfillment, that is, the harlot riding the beast and the vengeance of the wrath of God towards the harlot church which will get fulfilled to the end through these happenings of the end (Rev 18:7, 20). The harlot church which made merchandise of the bodies and souls of men by selling indulgences [i.e. a monetary donation through which by doing something for the Church here on Earth, people were told that it wouldn't go amiss toward earning forgiveness from God to earn their way to heaven when it is added with some good works, of which even the dead were guaranteed by this harlot church to gain heaven even from hell fire], through these dubious doctrine from hell, it has sent many many souls straight in to hell fire (Rev 18:12-13). It has deceived people by "the light of the lamp" [i.e. Word of God] and "the voice of the bride and the bridegroom" [i.e. the Church liturgy], through which all the nations were deceived as the men which the Catholic church used were those who were the great men of the earth who found more and more wealth and riches by its sorcery (Rev 18:23).


Of the world’s 1.285 billion Catholics, it said, almost 49 percent live in North or South America, including the Caribbean. Europe is home to 22.2 percent of the global Catholic population; 17.3 percent are in Africa; 11 percent are in Asia; and just under 1 percent are in Oceania and the South Pacific. The present day Islamic Muslim population stands somewhere around 1.8 billion to 2 billion. So Catholics along with the Islamist will form the largest and the single most populous institutions as of now itself, and we know that anything can happen with such a unholy alliance during these end of the end times we live in. So do not be deceived by both these group of people.

Dear People of God, Saints of the Most High God, stay alert, read your Bible and have personal relationship with Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit of God who is the oil within us (Matt 25:1-13; Rom 8:9; Mark 6:13; Luke 8:43-46; Mark 16:18; James 5:14), so that we will not be left behind but be taken up during the rapture of the TRUE CHURCH before the Tribulation starts, but after the abomination of desolation takes place in the temple at Jerusalem which will be built shortly (Matt 24:15, 20-21, 27-28, 42, 44; 2 Thess 2:3-4).

Seeing all the fulfillment of the above prophecies in our times, we can hear almost the door of heaven being opened and the foot step's of our Messiah Jesus Christ coming to take us back to our Father's Home in the New Heaven and New Earth (John 14:1-4; 2 Peter 3:10-13; Isa 34:4).

Much Blessings....
