The 1,260 Days Prophecy FINALLY REVEALED!

God through the end-time Elijah, Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong has revealed a great deal about the prophecies written in the book of Revelation. In his pamphlet, “Who or What is the Prophetic Beast?”, Mr. Armstrong wrote about the beast of Revelation 13:

What Is the Beast?

First, then, the “beast” itself. The “mark” is the mark of the “beast.” This is described in the first verses of this chapter: “And I stood upon the sand of the sea,” records John, speaking of his prophetic vision, “and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority” (Revelation 13:1-2).

The identity of this weird “beast” was revealed in Part One of this booklet. Daniel 7 reveals that these “beasts” or wild animals symbolize civil governments or world empires. Daniel’s first “beast” was like a lion, and it represented the Chaldean Empire of Nebuchadnezzar, called Babylon. His second, like a bear, pictured the Persian Empire; his third, with four heads, like a leopard, represented Alexander’s Greco-Macedonian Empire and its succeeding four divisions after his death; and his fourth beast, unlike any existing wild animal, the Roman Empire which swallowed up and absorbed all the others, and embodied the strongest physical and military characteristics of all its predecessors.

This “beast” of Revelation 13 had the mouth, the strongest part, of the lion; the feet, the strongest part, of the bear; the body of the leopard. It included, in the one empire it represents, the strength of all of Daniel’s “beasts.” It is the Roman Empire.

Notice, the “dragon” gave this empire its seat and power, and great authority. Revelation 12:9 and 20:2 both tell us in plain words this “dragon” is Satan the devil. It is, then, the political instrument of Satan in ruling and deceiving the world.  (p. 27-28, Who or What is the Prophetic Beast?)

God has placed Mr. Armstrong precisely at the time when Revelation 17:10 was being fulfilled:

Notice, at the time John saw the beast, five are fallen, one is, and one is yet to come (Revelation 17:10). The five that are fallen are the five during the 1,260 years in which power was given, by religious authority, for the healed beast to continue.

The one that “is,” is the kingdom that extended from Garibaldi to the downfall of the fascist regimes of World War II. It was not in any sense the power-wielding old Roman Empire, so during the stage of this ninth horn (Revelation 13), or sixth head (Revelation 17), John speaks of it as the beast that was, and is not, and shall arise once more out of the bottomless pit.

The seventh head with its 10 horns, in the 17th chapter, will be, as the 17th chapter explains, the revival of the beast, the Roman Empire, “out of the bottomless pit” by a “United States of Europe,” or federation of 10 European nations centered within the bounds of the old Roman Empire (Revelation 17:12-18). (p. 14, Who or What is the Prophetic Beast?)

Mr. Armstrong came on the scene and began to understand the “five are fallen and ONE IS” prophecy. Here is what Mr. Gerald R. Flurry further wrote about this subject:

The Beast Power

In Revelation 17:1-3, the angel says to John, “Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: 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 … and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.” God says a wondrous beast shall arise which will affect all inhabitants of the Earth.

Continuing in verse 7: “And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.” God revealed to Mr. Armstrong, through these verses in Revelation 17 and other scriptures, that a great political beast is rising in Europe that will be joined by a great European religious beast in an unholy alliance to conquer the world. Religion is going to emotionally stir the Europeans. And then a megalomaniac will come on the scene to stir up the people as only someone like Hitler could.

Verse 8 of Revelation 17 says, “The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder … when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.”

The word translated “bottomless pit” or abyss in verse 8 actually means underground. That’s where the Nazis have been since before the end of World War II. (p. 32, Germany and the Holy Roman Empire)

As this beast has gone into hiding, where could that “bottomless pit” or “underground” be? Where did the Nazis fled to hid themselves after they were defeated in World War II?

Secret files reveal 9,000 Nazi war criminals fled to South America after WWII

  • As many as 5,000 Nazis went to Argentina
  • Between 1,500 and 2,000 ended up in Brazil
  • Around 500 to 1,000 settled in Chile
  • The rest started new lives in Paraguay and Uruguay

Nine thousand Nazi war criminals fled to South America after the Second World War, it has been revealed for the first time.

After receiving tip-offs, German prosecutors were recently granted access to secret files in Brazil and Chile that confirmed the true number of Third Reich immigrants.

According to the documents, an estimated 9,000 war criminals escaped to South America, including Croatians, War criminalsUkrainians, Russians and other western Europeans who aided the Nazi murder machine.

Most, perhaps as many as 5,000, went to Argentina; between 1,500 and 2,000 are thought to have made it to Brazil; around 500 to 1,000 to Chile; and the rest to Paraguay and Uruguay.

These numbers do not include several hundred more who fled to the safety of right-wing regimes in the Middle East.

Previous estimates as to how many Nazis fled to South America have varied wildly from 5,000 to 300,000.

The files also showed that during the war Argentine President General Juan Peron sold 10,000 blank Argentine passports to ODESSA – the organisation set up to protect former SS men in the event of defeat.

Look at any map or any globe and notice where Argentina is located – it is located at the lower portion. It is indeed the “bottomless pit” being described in Revelation 17:8.

ONE HOUR WITH THE BEAST

As we continue to watch the revival of the Holy Roman Empire with the 10 nation combine,  here is what Mr. Flurry wrote (emphasis mine):

The so-called Holy Roman Empire is going to rise to power one final time. In Revelation 17:9-12, it says, “And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings: five are fallen and one is”—that’s when Mr. Armstrong came on the scene and began to understand all of these prophecies—“and the other is not yet come”—but it is rising now—“and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.” (p. 32, Germany and the Holy Roman Empire)

A day for a yearCan we quantify the time element being discussed here, i.e., the ONE HOUR with the beast? –“And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings ONE HOUR with the beast.”

As the prophecy indicates, the 27 nations in the European Union will be reduced to just 10 nations for ONE HOUR or 15 days with the beast! Is it really possible that 10 leaders will be able to receive power within 15 days? Actually the framework has already been set by the leader of the beast power – Germany!

Germany, France examine radical push for eurozone integration

BRUSSELS Sun Nov 27, 2011 5:58pm EST

(Reuters) – Germany and France are exploring radical methods of securing deeper and more rapid fiscal integration among euro zone countries, aware that getting broad backing for the necessary treaty changes may not be possible, officials say…

As a result, senior French and German civil servants have been exploring other ways of achieving the goal, one being an agreement among just the euro zone countries.

“The goal is for the member states of the common currency to create their own Stability Union and to concentrate on that,” German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble told ARD television on Sunday.

Another option being explored is a separate agreement outside the EU treaty that could involve a core of around 8-10 euro zone countries, officials say.

A great crisis involving the radical Islam probably over the Jerusalem issue will trigger the immediate fulfillment of Revelation 17:12 – “to receive power as kings ONE HOUR with the beast” – the 27 EU nations being reduced to 10 within 15 daysA United States of Europe is coming into fruition and is already being laid before our eyes!

If we carefully take notice of the word “receive”, it is very revealing indeed. It comes from the Greek word, lambano: G2983, which means, to take, to seize, receive. So verse 12 could also mean (which I believe is more appropriate): to take or to seize power as kings!

Seize according to Webster’s Dictionary means,

  1. to take hold of suddenly and forcibly;
  2. to take possession by force;
  3. to take advantage of something such as an opportunity eagerly and immediately.

It is most likely that the beast (Germany) has already conspired with those 10 kings (leaders) even before the actual crisis transpires – that in an eventuality of such, they shall seize power as kings one hour with the beast. That all happens in a blitzkrieg manner – within 15 days – as if it had been planned all along! This clearly will be a hijack of the European Union perpetrated by Germany – the beast of Revelation 17!

“These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.” (v. 13)

These 10 horns are the same 10 toes in King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of a great image – According to Mr. Armstrong, there will be 5 leaders or nations in the EASTERN leg and another 5 in the WEST of the empire. (Daniel 2:31-34; Read Mr. Armstrong’s co-worker letter, June 10, 1980; also Daniel: Unsealed At Last!, pp. 18-22)

Now, those 10 nations or leaders are just waiting for a strong EU leader, A KING OF FIERCE COUNTENANCE that will rise any moment now because the TRANSGRESSORS IN GOD”S OWN CHURCH are already COME TO THE FULL!:

THE “HOLY” ROMAN EMPIRE

As Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong was able to witness the fulfillment of the prophecy in Revelation 17:10 for the “ONE IS,“ while God put Mr. Gerald R. Flurry on the scene for the “ONE YET TO COME” of the final revival Holy Roman Empire in this last end, he also discussed a great deal about this beast of Revelation 17:

Today the Germans and the European Union are once again focusing the people’s minds on the Holy Roman Empire. European Parliamentarian Otto von Hapsburg said, “The [European] Community is living largely by the heritage of the Holy Roman Empire, though the great majority of the people who live by it don’t know by what heritage they live.”

Notice, “the great majority” don’t know they are even now living by the heritage of the Holy Roman Empire! That is because it has been “underground”— just as God prophesied. But that is changing fast as the empire grows in power.

The people need a more specific focus to stir their imaginations. And they are getting just that. Mr. Habsburg, a descendant of the Habsburg dynasty that ruled the Holy Roman Empire for 400 years, talked about a crown in a museum in Vienna, Austria, which symbolizes a great deal to the Germans. He said, “We possess a European symbol which belongs to all nations of Europe equally; THIS IS THE CROWN OF THE HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE, WHICH EMBODIES THE TRADITION OF CHARLEMAGNE.” Charlemagne was crowned emperor of the Holy Roman Empire in a.d. 800—the First Reich.

Can we see where Satan is taking them? It’s not necessarily a matter of where they want to go, it’s where Satan is leading them!

Mr. Habsburg failed to mention that the Holy Roman Empire also embodied the tradition of Mussolini and Adolf Hitler—leader of the Third Reich. Europe is once again becoming mesmerized by the crown of Charlemagne— just as Hitler was. (p. 29, Germany and the Holy Roman Empire)

Who is CHARLEMAGNE?

Charles the Great

The Franks were the first barbaric tribe to embrace Catholicism, but it was for political gain, not religious. Mostly of Germanic origin, the Franks used the church to support their expansionist policies, while the church relied on Frankish rulers for protection. It was a union based on politics alone.

The Frankish kingdom reached the pinnacle of its power during the rule of Charlemagne (meaning Charles the Great). Before Charlemagne’s emergence as world ruler, the political scene in Europe was greatly divided. Germany was sliced into many different tribes. Much of Italy was occupied by the Lombards. And Byzantium was recognized as the successor to the eastern region of the old Roman Empire. Charlemagne, in conjunction with the papal throne, eventually changed all that—but not without much bloodshed.

Charlemagne

Charlemagne felt it his duty to defend the church. In 774, at the request of Pope Leo III, he entered into northern Italy and conquered the Lombard kingdom, uniting Italy for the first time in centuries. In 799, he again came to the aid of the pope, who was assaulted, brutally beaten, and thrown into prison by a band of conspirators.  With the military backing of Charles and his Frankish troops, the pope was exonerated of all wrongdoing and reinstated to his ecclesiastic office. (p. 17, Germany and the Holy Roman Empire)

But what could have happened to the papacy back then that Charlemagne was obliged to defend it?

Before Charlemagne was crowned Emperor, there was a considerable amount of tension between the pope and Constantinople. Relations between them had been strained since the time of Justinian. In 753 AD pope Stephen III allied with Pepin the Short, the Frankish king, which insured the success of the Franks. This alliance with the Franks was important for the papacy. During the 8th century they were being threatened by Byzantine’s rivals, the Lombards. Through military campaigns, the Lombard kings threatened to take over Rome and the papacy. For this reason, the papacy was in desperate need of protection. By the year 774 A.D. Charlemagne had succeeded his father as king of the Franks, and assumed kingship over the Lombards.

Prophecies of the reign of Gentile kingdoms

The Roman Empire was able to gain the word “HOLY” into its name due to its religious government counterpart – the universal church in Rome, which is in itself a separate, independent, sovereign state apart from the ruling civil government of the empire.

“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.” (Revelation 13:4-5)

Here is what the end-time Elijah wrote about this beast of Revelation 13:

They worshiped the beast (Revelation 13:4). Therefore some conclude, from this one statement alone, that the beast must be the papacy, not knowing that the people worshiped the Roman Empire and its emperors! Notice how they worshiped the beast—saying, “Who is able to make war with him?” The Roman Empire was the greatest war-making power the world had ever known. This beast killed by the sword (verse 10). (p. 12, Who or What is the Prophetic Beast?)

Notice here that it was Satan the devil who gave the power unto this beast. And if we shall look closely, as he gave power to this Roman Empire, he also gave this beast a MOUTH that speaks great things and blasphemies. This MOUTH is the same as the one being described in verse 11, here is what Mr. Armstrong wrote:

Now in verse 11 (Revelation 13) another “beast” is pictured. This beast had two horns like a lamb, but spoke as a dragon. This second beast of Revelation 13 is also pictured in Revelation 17 as the harlot woman who rode the beast. This fallen woman, or church, is different from all other churches in one respect. She is organized as a civil government, as well as an ecclesiastical church. Nations of the world send ambassadors to her, the same as they do the capitals of other nations. (p. 29, Who or What is the Prophetic Beast?)

This religious beast was the reason why the term “HOLY” has been added to the Roman Empire and it has caused the martyrdom of God’s saints then and in the very immediate future:

And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” (Revelation 13:6-8)

Here is what Mr. Armstrong wrote about this two-horned religious beast:

So, notice: This two-horned beast not only caused people to receive the mark of the beast (compare Revelation 19:20), but also perpetrated the forming of an image that caused the martyrdom of saints. As many as would not worship this image were caused to be killed. This false church did not kill them—she caused them to be killed. History shows that the civil government martyred millions who were declared “anathema from Christ” or “heretics.”

Compare with the woman who rode the beast in Revelation 17: “And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus …” (verse 6). Certainly these are one and the same. (p. 21, Who or What is the Prophetic Beast?)

Revelation 17 beast

1260 YEARS / 1260 DAYS PROPHECY

In Revelation 12:6, it has been written that the woman who rode the beast in Revelation 17 has persecuted and martyred God’s people throughout its reign.

“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.”

Mr. Armstrong has taught God’s Church that this 1260 days prophecy is dual in its prophetic application, i.e., one is “a day for a year” fulfillment (applying the same principle in Ezekiel 4:6) – 1,260 years; while the final fulfillment will be a literal 1,260 days. Mr. Armstrong explained that the “healed deadly wound” of the beast has to continue for 1,260 years, i.e., from 554 AD to 1814 AD.

1260 years prophecy1

But if we shall consider carefully the verses from which the 1,260 years prophecy has been derived:

“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.” (Revelation 13:4-5)

We will have a list of the conditions contained therein:

  • the dragon (Satan the devil) gave the power to the beast
  • Satan gave the beast a MOUTH which speaks blasphemies
  • power was given unto the MOUTH to continue for 42 months

The 42 months or the 1,260 day for a year fulfillment period is connected to the MOUTH that was given to the beast and obviously NOT APPLICABLE to the beast. Notice that a semi-colon has been used to separate two thoughts which means, the previous thought (i.e., MOUTH) is closely connected and related to the next thought (power was given to continue for 42 months). With this in mind, let’s consider the history of the PAPACY – the MOUTH that was given to the beast of Revelation 13:

HISTORY OF THE PAPACY (Popes and Franks: 753-772) 

In 753 the pope, Stephen II, makes an unusual journey north of the Alps. He visits the Frankish king, Pepin III, to seek his help against the Lombards who have recently taken the city of Ravenna and who now pose a similar threat to Rome. The pope anoints Pepin at the abbey of St Denis, near Paris, together with his two young sons Charles and Carloman. Pepin duly invades northern Italy in 754, and again in 756.

He is able to drive the Lombards from the territory belonging to Ravenna. But he does not restore it to its rightful owner, the Byzantine emperor. Instead, perhaps believing the fiction revealed in the forged Donation of Constantine, he hands over large areas of central Italy to the pope and his successors.

The land given to pope Stephen in 756, in the so-called Donation of Pepin, makes the papacy a temporal power. This territory is the origin of the Papal States, over which the popes continue to rule until their incorporation in the new kingdom of Italy in 1870. The story of Rome, for the next eleven centuries, becomes almost entirely the story of the papacy.

In the short term the temporal rule of the popes is shaky. Within a few years the Lombards again invade their territory. In 772 a new pope appeals for help to a new Frankish king. Adrian I enlists the support of Charlemagne. This time the Lombards have conclusively met their match. In 774 Charlemagne adds their kingdom to his own.

According to history even before Charlemagne became an emperor of the First Reich, his father King Pepin III (also known as Pepin the Short) has been instrumental in giving the papacy its temporal sovereignty through the Donation of Pepin – it was when Pope Stephen first achieved true political power over the papal states which was dated around 754 -756 AD:

Donation of Pippin, traditional name of the oral or written promise made by the Carolingian king Pippin III to Pope Stephen II (or III) granting the pope rights over large territories in central Italy. The Donation was an important step in the development of the Papal States and helped to solidify the alliance between the papacy and the Frankish monarchy.

The Donation of Pippin came into being as part of the restructuring of political alliances on the Italian peninsula in the mid-8th century…

Stephen’s visit to Pippin bore important fruit for both pope and king. In a meeting in April at Quierzy, Pippin promised to restore papal lands taken by Aistulf in central Italy. Much of what Pippin granted to the pope had been imperial territory, to which the king had no legal claim. Papal accounts of the promise maintain that Pippin granted the pope the exarchate, including Ravenna, and the Roman duchy. The promise made at Quierzy was long identified as the Donation, though there is no surviving record of it. In any event, Stephen and Pippin forged an alliance in 754 that was strengthened when Stephen crowned and anointed Pippin and his sons Charlemagne and Carloman.

What may be better identified as the official Donation of Pippin is the so-called Confession of St. Peter, which was compiled following Pippin’s second invasion of Italy to assist the pope. Aistulf’s continued aggression required the Frankish king to use force to protect Stephen and papal territory. In 755 and 756 Pippin entered Italy to stop the Lombard king, and in 756 he defeated Aistulf and imposed a peace on him. At Pippin’s direction, the keys to a number of cities and territories in central Italy that had submitted to papal authority were collected. The keys and a list of the cities involved, the Confession of St. Peter, were placed on the altar of Old St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome in 756. 

The Donation of Pippin was confirmed by Pippin’s successors, Charlemagne and  Louis the Pious, in 778 and 817 respectively. It was later offered as proof of the authenticity of the Donation of Constantine, whereby the Roman emperor supposedly granted Pope Sylvester I spiritual and temporal primacy in the Western Empire.

Source: http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/450752/Donation-of-Pippin

Again, as stated, “The land given to pope Stephen in 756, in the so-called Donation of Pepin, makes the papacy a temporal power.” – THE POPE THEN WAS GIVEN TEMPORAL SOVEREIGNTY OVER PAPAL STATES BEGINNING IN 756 AD!

This second beast of Revelation 13 is also pictured in Revelation 17 as the harlot woman who rode the beast. This fallen woman, or church, is different from all other churches in one respect. She is organized as a civil government, as well as an ecclesiastical church. Nations of the world send ambassadors to her, the same as they do the capitals of other nations.

This church, just as the woman riding an animal guides and directs the animal—like, for example, a woman riding a horse—took over, exercised, wielded, all the power of the first beast—the Roman Empire. (p. 29, Who or What is the Prophetic Beast?)

If we will count 1,260 years from 756 AD as prophesied, the power that was given to the MOUTH (papacy) shall end by 2016. Well how about the literal 1,260 days fulfillment? Does this mean that we have to count backwards from that year 2016? Then we will arrive on the year 2013! What specific event happened during 2013?

IMAGE OF THE BEAST

There is a prophecy about the image of the beast that has been formed that has caused and will cause the MARTYRDOM OF THE SAINTS:

Did the two-horned beast deceive the very ones who have the mark of the beast? He did! Continue in Revelation 13: “And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth”—how? “… 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. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell [trade, earn a living, hold a job], save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name” (verses 14-17).

So, notice: This two-horned beast not only caused people to receive the mark of the beast (compare Revelation 19:20), but also perpetrated the forming of an image that caused the martyrdom of saints. As many as would not worship this image were caused to be killed. This false church did not kill them—she caused them to be killed. (p. 21, Who or What is the Prophetic Beast?)

What is an image? In the dictionary, here is what it means:

  • One that closely or exactly resembles another
  • A typical example or embodiment
  • To make or produce a likeness of
  • representation or likeness of a person or thing
  • person or thing that resembles another closely; double or copy

So the image of the beast has to resemble and be in the likeness of the beast itself. What organization could best represent and a typical embodiment of the beast? In verse 4, the beast is described as a war machine: “Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make WAR with him?” The image of the beast has to resemble not just the Roman government structure as Mr. Armstrong said, but it also has to be in the likeness of it in being a WAR machine that has killed many of God’s saints:

History shows that the civil government martyred millions who were declared “anathema from Christ” or “heretics.” Compare with the woman who rode the beast in Revelation 17: “And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus …” (verse 6).

Certainly these are one and the same.

Now this ecclesiastical organization, which is a twofold government, deceived the people by saying they should make an image of the beast. Note it (Revelation 13:14)—that is how it deceived people. What is an image? Dictionaries define it as a “likeness,” or a “copy, representation, model, semblance, counterpart.” So here is a church saying, “Let us make a model, or counterpart, of the civil Roman government”—for that is what the beast is. (p. 21, Who or What is the Prophetic Beast?)

Which organization or society of the Church of Rome had a history of military style structure and ethos, and its shock troops that is willing to go wherever and whenever the church needs them? There is only one group that can fit the description – THE JESUITS!

The Jesuits: ‘God’s marines’

The Week Staff / March 23, 2013

Who are the Jesuits?
Formally called the Society of Jesus, they are the largest single religious order in the Catholic Church. The society was founded in Paris in 1534 by St. Ignatius Loyola, a Basque soldier who discovered his faith while recuperating from a cannonball wound. He and six fellow students at the University of Paris, including St. Francis Xavier, dedicated themselves to serving the pope as missionary soldiers of Christ. The order was originally organized along military lines, under the leadership of a “Father General.” Early followers named themselves “The Company of Jesus,” and were nicknamed “God’s Marines,” for their willingness to go anywhere in the world at the pope’s command. Pope Paul III recognized them as an order in 1540; today there are over 20,000 Jesuits, including missionaries, teachers, and scholars.

Source: http://theweek.com/articles/466362/jesuits-gods-marines

Let’s continue further to consider the main purpose of the Jesuits (emphasis mine in bold):

The Founding of the Company

“The Society of Jesus” was constituted on Assumption Day in 1534, in the chapel of Notre-Dame de Montmartre. Ignatius was then forty-four years old. After communion, the animator and his companions vowed to go to the Holy Land, as soon as their studies were finished, to convert the infidels. But the following year found them in Rome where the pope, who was then organising a crusade against the lurks with the German Emperor and the Republic of Venice, showed them how impossible their project was because of it. So Ignatius and his companions dedicated themselves to missionary work in Christian lands; in Venice, his apostolate roused again the suspicions of the Inquisition. The Constitution of the Company of Jesus was at last drafted and approved in Rome, by Paul III, in 1540, and the Jesuits put themselves at the disposition of the pope, promising him unconditional obedience. (p. 23, The Secret History of the Jesuits)

Did you get that? The Jesuits has been organized as a crusade against the lurks by the pope together with the German Emperor and the Republic of Venice. And it has to resemble the MILITARY STRUCTURE of the German Empire to CONVERT THE INFIDELS in the Holy Land at the disposition of the pope, promising him unconditional obedience! THE JESUITS ARE INDEED THE IMAGE OF THE BEAST THAT WAS PROPHESIED TO HAVE CAUSED THE MARTYRDOM OF THE SAINTS THEN DURING THE INQUISITION, AND IS PROPHESIED TO DO THE SAME ONE LAST TIME!

Now, going back to the fulfillment of the 1,260 year prophecy wherein temporal power was given to the papacy in 756 AD that will end by 2016. And since the fulfillment of this prophecy has a definite time period, there is a need to count back 1,260 days for its final literal day fulfillment that will fall on the year 2013. Let us now answer the question: “What specific event happened during 2013?”

1260 years prophecy

Lightning bolt hit Vatican not once but TWICE hours after Pope’s shock resignation

Lightning struck the Vatican not once but TWICE – hours after Pope Benedict XVI’s shock resignation.

The spooky moment, believed by some, to be a sign from God, was caught on camera by AFP photographer Filippo Monteforte…

As Pope Benedict resigned LIGHTNING struck

Actually, there is a specific prophecy that has been fulfilled during this momentous event:

“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon… And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.”  (Revelation 13:11, 13)

The original Greek word for “wonder” can also mean “a SIGN; an INDICATION, especially CEREMONIALLY,” while the word “fire” can also mean: “specifically LIGHTNING.” So it appears that the LIGHTNING is a SIGN that was made by Satan the devil as an INDICATION, especially CEREMONIALLY to mark the next ORDINATION:

“And 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…” (v. 14)

The word “miracle” comes from the same Greek word as that of the word used in verse 13 for “wonder,” and the word for “do” can mean “ORDAIN” in Strong’s Concordance. So in paraphrasing it, we have:

“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon… And he doeth a great SIGN, so that he maketh LIGHTNING to come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of that SIGN which he had power to do in the sight of the beast…” 

Again, that LIGHTNING is a SIGN or CEREMONIAL INDICATION that points us to an ORDINATION. And who is going to be ordained? For the first time in history, a JESUIT POPE! Is this just a coincidence or a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy?

On March 13, 2013 Reuters reported, “Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina was elected in a surprise choice to be the new leader of the troubled Roman Catholic Church on Wednesday, taking the name Francis I and becoming the first non-European pontiff in nearly 1,300 years.

Final Resurrection of the Holy Roman Empire is Here

We must not forget the prophecy of how long this final resurrection of the Holy Roman Empire will continue – “power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.” Does this mean that the literal 1,260 days or 42 months has already started when Pope Francis of Argentina (who is in the very image of the beast as well being himself a Jesuit), was given the temporal power of the papacy?

  1. I agree that we should not look upon one passage of scripture singly and by itself, but on all the numerous passages collected together, we should look upon the several prophecies of different time, and different kinds, all concurring in one and the same point, my observation as well 756-2016= 1260 years or 42 months, combine this with historical time since Adam would be in AD 2016 to be 6000 years keeping in mind the calendar act of 1752 should bring us to 2017.
    in these interpretations , we are not to expect demonstrations or such proofs as shall be liable to no manner or objections, as Events in history sufficiently answers the predictions in Revelations. Prophecy is there to encourage our hope and trust in God, The design of prophecy is to represent these things in such a manner as shall fix our attention and confirm our faith in the truth. or the Plain Truth as Herbert Armstrong would say. thank you for such a great magazine the Trumpet.
