Economic indicators are confusing; political prospects disappointing:
global security threats frightening. Much of what passes for biblical
interpretation is shallow and convenient, misleading and useless.

CUBA YIELDS TO
PAPAL PRESSURE Declaring Good Friday A Public Holiday
At the insistence of the Pope, Cuba's communist
government has decreed that Good Friday this year will be a public
holiday. Less than 10% of the Cuban population are practicing Catholics,
and the government has not yet decided whether or not the holiday will
apply next year. (BBC)
The church took the pagan philosophy and
made it the buckler of faith against the heathen. She took the pagan,
Roman Pantheon, temple of all the gods, and made it sacred to all the
martyrs; so it stands to this day. She took the pagan Sunday and made it
the Christian Sunday. She took the pagan Easter and made it the feast we
celebrate during this season.
... There is, in truth, something royal,
kingly about the sun, making it a fit emblem of Jesus, the Sun of Justice.
Hence the church in these countries would seem, to have said, "Keep that
old, pagan name. It shall remain consecrated, sanctified." And thus the
pagan Sunday, dedicated to Balder, became the Christian Sunday, sacred to

Pope Benedict Declares
the Virgin Mary
to be the living Ark of the Covenant!
In the first reading, we heard: "then God's
temple in heaven was opened, and the ark of the covenant was seen
within the temple" (Revelation 11:19). What is the significance of the
ark? What does it appear to be? For the Old Testament, it is the symbol
of the presence of God in the midst of his people. But now the symbol
has given way to reality. Thus the New Testament tells us that the true
ark of the covenant is a living and concrete person: it is the Virgin
Mary. God does not dwell in a piece of furniture, God dwells in a
person, in a heart: Mary, she who bore in her womb the Eternal Son of
God made man, Jesus Our Lord and Savior. ― Benedict XVI, homily for the
feast of the Assumption of Mary, August 15, 2011, Zenit.
The New Testament says absolutely
nothing about Mary being taken up to heaven, nor does it in any way
make any parallels between Mary and the Ark of the Sanctuary of God in
heaven. See Worship of the
The Ark of the Covenant seen in the heavenly temple of God in Rev.
11:19 IS very important. What Covenant? The Covenant of the 10
Commandments of God, by which all humanity will be judged. Inscribed on
2 tables of stone in that Ark is a Commandment that the Roman Catholic
Church has presumptuously attempted to change on its own authority,
without a "thus sayeth the Lord." This blasphemous usurpation of
authority was foretold by the prophet Daniel, 7:25, and when a Sunday
law is enforced, it will be the "Mark of the Beast."

The Seventh Day Sabbath
Sought Out, and Celebrated
Saints obtaining Victory over the
Mark of the Beast.
by Thomas Tillam - Minister of the Gospel
The first Royal Law that ever Jehovah
instituted, and for our Example celebrated, (namely His blessed
Seventh-day Sabbath,) is in these very last days become the last great
controversy between the Saints and the Man of Sin, The Changer of Times
and Laws. Awake ye slumbering Virgins, the figtree is apparently
budded, the signs of his second coming who is The Lord of the Sabbath,
are so fairly visible, that although the day and hour be not known, yet
doubtless this generation shall not pass; till new Jerusalems glory
shall crown obedient Saints with everlasting Rest.

Pope Blames Private
Interpretation of Bible Prophecy For Disunity.
"Too often those who are not Christians, as
they observe the splintering of Christian communities, are
understandably confused about the Gospel message itself. Fundamental
Christian beliefs and practices are sometimes changed within
communities by so-called prophetic actions that are based on a
hermeneutic not always consonant with the datum of Scripture and
Tradition. Communities consequently give up the attempt to act as a
unified body, choosing instead to function according to the idea of
local options . Somewhere in this process the need for diachronic
koinonia communion with the Church in every age is lost, just
at the time when the world is losing its bearings and needs a
persuasive common witness to the saving power of the Gospel (cf. Rom

POPE BENDS UNDER PRESSURE
TRIDENTINE RITE'S LATIN PRAYER FOR THE JEWS.
Text of the old prayer which dates back to
Oremus et pro perfidis Judaeis: ut Deus et
Dominus noster auferat velamen de cordibus eorum; ut et ipsi agnoscant
Iesum Christum, Dominum nostrum. Omnipotens, sempiterne Deus, qui etiam
iudaicam perfidiam a tua misericordia non repellis: exaudi preces
nostras, quas pro illius populi obcaecatione deferimus; ut, agnita
veritatis tuae luce, quae Chistus est, a suis tenebris erantur.
[Let us pray also for the faithless Jews:
that God and our Lord may lift the veil from their hearts; that they
too may acknowledge Jesus Christ as our Lord. Almighty, eternal God,
Who dost not bar even the faithlessness of the Jews from Thy mercy:
hear our prayers, which we offer for the blindness of that people; in
order that when they have acknowledged the light of Thy truth, which is
Christ, they may be delivered from their darkness.]
It is worth noting that when Pope Pius V
issued the Latin Tridentine Mass in 1570, he declared it completely
irreformable in perpetuity, in QUO PRIMUM:
"We specifically command each and every patriarch,
administrator, and all other persons or whatever ecclesiastical dignity
they may be, be they even cardinals of the Holy Roman Church, or
possessed of any other rank or pre-eminence, ... they must not in
celebrating Mass presume to introduce any ceremonies or recite any
prayers other than those contained in this Missal."
... "We likewise declare and ordain that no one whosoever is
forced or coerced to alter this Missal, and that this present document
cannot be revoked or modified, but remain always valid and retain its

Defense of Israel. This book will expose the sins of the
fathers and the vicious abuse of the Jewish people. In Defense of
Israel will shake Christian theology. It scripturally proves that
the Jewish people as a whole did not reject Jesus as Messiah. It will
also prove that Jesus
did not come to earth to be the Messiah. It will prove
that there was a Calvary conspiracy between Rome, the high priest, and
Herod to execute Jesus as an insurrectionist too dangerous to live. Since Jesus refused
by word and deed to claim to be the Messiah, how can the Jews
be blamed for rejecting what was never offered? Read it in this
shocking expose, In Defense of Israel." John Hagee
