emblem of the Papacy: Triple tiara and keys Fr...

The Roman Catholic Church claims the choice of each pope is guided by the Holy Spirit, despite some of the popes who were chosen, including one who sold the papacy and the time they had two popes disputing who was the real pope, and when they tried to resolve it, they came out with three people claiming to be pope, and the so-called “Roman” Catholic Church had a pope ruling from Avignon, France for a time.

They claim Peter was the first pope when there’s no secular record of him even having visited Rome, and he was named as the apostle to the Jews, whereas Paul was named the apostle to the Gentiles (Galatians 2:8), and there actually is evidence of Paul having visited Rome and the Church’s teachings are actually Pauline (don’t marry, no divorce, submission to governing authorities), and the books of first and second Peter are among the most dubious in authenticity, with even the early church fathers regarding 2 Peter as the most dubious.

And what a great example he was, in having a wife, despite their ban on married priests, slaves were told to obey their masters even when they are acting unjustly according to 1 Peter 2:18, and he was called Satan by Jesus (Mark 8:33) and denied him three times (Mark 14:29-31), and cut off a Roman’s ear despite Jesus’ teaching of turning the other cheek (John 18:10).

Gutenberg BibleI guest hosted Charles Giuliani’s Truth Hertz on January 1, 2013, and as promised, I gave a unique presentation that departed from my usual content on Exposing Faux Capitalism.

Here are the notes I made in preparation for the show. Quotations are taken from the King James Version of the Bible:

I see a fatal flaw with the Bible as being from a good God, with the bad behaviour of prophets and other figures elevated by God:

  • Noah getting drunk from wine after the Flood and being naked (Genesis 9:20-24)
  • Lot offering up his daughters to be raped, Lot drinking alcohol and getting so drunk that his daughters have sex with him (Genesis 19:31-36)
  • Moses being upset at his generals for not killing all the women and children in a town (Numbers 31:14-18)
  • Solomon having 700 wives and 300 concubines (1 Kings 11:3)
  • Elisha invoking God’s intervention after some kids called him baldie, and God killing 42 of them with she-bears (2 Kings 2:24-25)

Jesus isn’t God

  • Jesus performs miracles, by permission of God, just as Moses did

Romans 1:3
Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;

  • Jesus says my Father is greater than I

John 14:28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.

  • Jesus says God is his God

John 20:17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

  • The Word means the plan

John 1
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

Jesus not born of a virgin

Isaiah 7
14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
15 Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good.
16 For before the child shall know to refuse the evil, and choose the good, the land that thou abhorrest shall be forsaken of both her kings.

  • Young’s not-so-literal Translation, which translates the word almah as virgin instead of young maiden. Should be betulah, which is found in other places, if virgin was intended.
  • Immanuel mentioned as a separate person in the next chapter, during Isaiah’s time
  • No reference in the New Testament to him as Immanuel
  • What butter and honey did he eat?
  • What land was forsaken of both kings after Jesus was born and before he chose the good (during 40 days and 40 nights of temptation)?

Actual meanings of words

  • Satan = the Adversary
  • devil = false accuser
  • Lucifer = reference to Nebudchadnezzar. St Jerome equated Lucifer with Satan in the Vulgate
  • star = angel
  • angel = messenger
  • aeon – age, not world
  • oikoumene – Greco-Roman world, not the entire Earth
  • bottomless pit = Judea
  • shaft of bottomless pit = Galilee
  • key to the bottomless pit = the authority to wage war on Judea
  • great chain = the authority to bring down God’s judgment
  • thousand years = indefinitely long time
  • great whore = Jerusalem
  • many waters = many nations
  • heaven – 3 meanings:
    • 3rd heaven, with God
    • Family, like Jacob and his 12 sons, as in Joseph’s dream
      • Genesis 37:9 And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.
    • Royal city — Rome

Preterism (past fulfillment)

  • Revelation is a very Jewish book, pointing to an early origin. I think it was probably written during the time of Domitian, in 95 AD, but was passed off to be from before the Second Temple’s destruction in 70 AD
  • The Whore of Babylon is the city of Jerusalem in 70 AD

Revelation 17
1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
5 And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.
6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

Jeremiah 3
8 And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.

Isaiah 1
18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

Revelation 1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:

  • Star is General Vespasian, before he became Emperor

Revelation 9
1 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.
2 And he opened the [shaft of the] bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.

Romans 16
20 And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

No eternal conscious torment known as hell

  • Four words translated as hell: Sheol, gehenna, Hades, tartarus
    • Sheol – Hebrew meaning the grave
    • Gehenna – the stinking, flaming dump outside Jerusalem
    • Hades – temporary holding place in Greek mythology
    • Tartarus – gloomy place
  • The lake of fire can’t be a place of eternal conscious torment, since hell itself (a holding place) is thrown into it

Revelation 20
10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

No supernatural fallen being known as Satan, the devil or Lucifer

  • Adam is Satan (the Adversary)

Genesis 3
15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Romans 16
20 And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

Devil, Satan and serpent are the same

Revelation 20
1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.

– Pharaseeical Jews as the devil (false accuser)

Mark 15:3
And the chief priests accused him of many things: but he answered nothing.
Luke 16:1
And he said also unto his disciples, There was a certain rich man, which had a steward; and the same was accused unto him that he had wasted his goods.
Luke 23:10
And the chief priests and scribes stood and vehemently accused him.
Acts 22:30
On the morrow, because he would have known the certainty wherefore he was accused of the Jews, he loosed him from his bands, and commanded the chief priests and all their council to appear, and brought Paul down, and set him before them.
Acts 23:28
And when I would have known the cause wherefore they accused him, I brought him forth into their council:
Acts 25:16
To whom I answered, It is not the manner of the Romans to deliver any man to die, before that he which is accused have the accusers face to face, and have licence to answer for himself concerning the crime laid against him.

Revelation 12
1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.
6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.
7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.

  • The angel is now Vespasian’s son, Titus, now that Vespasian has become the Emperor

Revelation 20
1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.

Coast to Coast AM

On November 20, 2011, I wrote the article, Erskine of Erskine Overnight says he was offered fame and fortune by hosting a Clear Channel program that sounds a lot like Coast to Coast AM, so long as he didn’t talk about “conspiracy stuff” (like the Trilateral Commission). Erskine said:

I’ll tell you what happened to me, Dr. Krieg. I got a phone call from one of the major networks — radio networks, not TV — and they said, ‘hey, we’d like you to do this radio show and there’s a lot of money in it, and it’ll be very good, we think you’d be very good on it. Cover a lot of paranormal topics, that type of thing.’

I said ‘fine, that sounds great.’

‘But you can’t do any of that conspiracy stuff, nobody wants to hear any of that conspiracy stuff.’

So that tells you exactly what they’re doing. You take Clear Channel and, it was a Clear Channel thing, and that’s exactly what they were doing. They were giving you your marching orders before you even took it. Yeah, I could’ve been extraordinarily famous, other people have done it, other people have taken it. But the fact of the matter is, they promise you the money and everything else. Isn’t that a lot like what Satan did to Jesus? I mean, I’m sorry, I’m not comparing myself to Jesus or them to Satan, but this is sort of the way of the world, isn’t it?

I said that the show Erskine referred to sounds a lot like Coast to Coast AM, but I am 99% convinced he was referring to Coast to Coast AM, because of it being a Clear Channel program, the reference to “there’s a lot of money in it,” the timing when Erskine had his show and when they were looking for a full-time replacement for Art Bell, and the fact that both Art Bell and George Noory have demonstrably acted as gatekeepers for keeping certain topics and guests away from their vast audience, like when George Noory brought on Alex Jones and David Icke, whom Art Bell had previously gatekept.

Therefore, according to my understanding, Erskine implied that George Noory made a deal with the devil in becoming the host of Coast to Coast AM, and the documented fact that Noory is gatekeeping the AIDS scam is an example of the deal he made to not to talk about certain things, despite him having no problem given three hours to talk about the far less significant problem of Lyme Disease.
