Welcome to Thus Say the Prophets!
A Study into the Noahide Nazarene Way
By Ben Ruach ha Kodesh (John of AllFaith) � 9.16.09 (3.15.08)
Chapter Two -- Part Four
The Church of Thyatira: Boniface III - Gregory VII (Hilderbrand) to the Reformation
600 CE - 1520 CE: the Roman Papacy now rules much of the world and the religion of the Nicolaitanes reigns supreme! The struggling followers of the Master are universally condemned as "Arians" and "Judaizers" and "heretics" all. Church courts like those of the "Holy Inquisition" are held and often as not those of sincere but dissenting faith are condemned to horrible torture and death by the Church Universal and Triumphant! By this point the Church had outlawed reading the Bible unless one is a priest and even many local priests were illiterate. Most sincere Christians no longer knew about the original Noahide Nazarene Way. They do not understand that the Master came to free the world from religious oppression not to enhance it! They assume the Church is God's vehicle and everything they do and proclaim is the Word of God and so they submit to abject poverty, starvation and spiritual darkness!
Eventually Church Tradition and Papal Bulls are even considered more binding on the masses than the Scriptures themselves! All the people know is what they are told in the Nicean congregations (i.e. those that accept the Vatican dictated Nicean Creed as unassailable dogma) and what they are able to piece together from the stained glass windows which are the only Bibles many of these poor people would ever be allowed to read.
As a direct result of the Church's countless abuses of authority the Spirit of HaShem, the God of Israel, was partly removed and Europa was plunged into the Dark Ages.
Without the Spirit of HaShem the Church became increasingly legalistic and harsh. The "Holy Inquisitors" were commissioned to destroy all traces of non-Catholic religion wherever they found it. This included Judaism, the Noahides, the Noahide Nazarene Way and those Pagans who, like the followers of Master Y'shua, boldly refused to bow the knee to the Papacy and surrender their religious faith. All of these were brutally crushed in various ways. During this dark period it is estimated that over six million European Pagans were slaughtered like animals in what came to be known as the Burning Times.
The remnant followers of Master Y'shua and those who, even without true knowledge, maintained their faith in him alone were condemned. Bloodshed, ignorance and darkness of all sorts descended across all the lands controlled by the New Universal Religion and darkness was everywhere.
It was also during this period that various Occult bodies were coming into their own and establishing Secret Brotherhoods, lodges and cabals. Many of these continue to exist today and they hold powers beyond what most people dare even conceive possible.
Many of these Occult movements were originally developed in opposition to the Roman and now Eastern Orthodox Church. They resulted from intellectual studies into ancient cultures and myths. They drew their knowledge and power from ancient Egypt, Sumaria, Babylonia and beyond always with the inspiration of demonic entities that they gradually came to know and honor. Many of these Orders proclaimed themselves "Luciferian" not because they worshiped (or even believed in) Lucifer, but because they knew he was the enemy of the Church they hated! This for instance was the original intention of the Black Mass. It was a way to insult and bastardize the teachings of Rome... but then they discovered its actual power!
As these people continued their studies and rebellions they begin tapping into something that most of them had not expected! POWER! Their prayers to Lucifer were being answered and they became literally his empowered servants as they realized the truth of his existence and potential. Whereas Y'shua the Anointed of HaShem had flatly rejected Lucifer's offer of global dominion (Matthew 4:1-), these people accepted it and devoted their very lives to it! For this service they became the literal inheritors of Nephilim and King Nimrod! They were "mighty hunters in opposition to HaShem!" Such organized Occultists formed and entered into the Bavarian Illuminati which serves as Lucifer's preeminent servant. Through the Bavarian Illuminati all the various Luciferian organizations, lodges, brotherhoods and so on are directed including: The Bohemian Grove, the Bilderberg Group, the CFR, the World Federalist Association, the Knights Templar Order of Freemasonry, the United Nations, the World Bank, WHO, the World Council of Churches, and so on and on.
ALL of them with one aim: the Revelation of Rex Mundi!
Still HaShem did not turn away from the Church completely. Within the Church, as within Judaism and all other religions, there were always sincere Believers who desired to know and serve the One God according to the Light they had thus far received. Such people resisted the spreading darkness and God used them in various ways as He advanced His Grand Plan of Global Liberation.
Among these sincere people were many of the Protesting Reformers who lead the Protestant Reformation. There were also many sincere Believers who remained within the Catholic Church as "loyal opposition." These people worked tirelessly in various ways to lead the Catholic Church godward and while their successes were limited, they were nonetheless vital to the well being of millions of Catholics. Still today there are millions of sincere and faithful Christians in Roman Catholicism, Eastern Orthodoxy, Anglicanism and throughout Protestantism. sadly however both the Reformers and the members of the Loyal Opposition failed to restore the Church to its Jewish roots. By the time the Reformation occurs knowledge of the original teachings had been all but lost and so the Reformation had no chance at complete success.
- Revelation 2:
18 And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;
19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.
20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.
21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.
22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.
23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.
24 But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.
25 But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.
26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:
27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.
28 And I will give him the morning star.
29 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
Here we see the birth pangs of the Whore of Babylon in "that woman Jezebel." The Christian Church in all of its denominations is straying farther and farther away from the God of Israel. The religion is Islam is advancing and the fate of the looks bleak.
Here ends chapter two.
Chapter Three Coming soon
