170 nations have ratified Fascist Mussolini’s perfect gift of statehood and immunity to the Vatican.
The Vatican city is not like other cities. It is an independent statehood. And as a statehood, it has its own laws and a court of justice. With priests as judges.
Benito Mussolini declared the independence of the Vatican statehood in the Lateran Treaty in 1929.
Could there be any better place to establish a syndicate for the Italian mafia, than inside the 3,2 square kilometers of papal control in Rome?
How do the Vatican deal with crimes?
The Present Pope was the tribunal in complaints of criminal acts. Cardinal Ratzinger held the title “Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith” Up to 1965, this organization was called the “Holy Office of the Inquisition”. That makes Cardinal Ratzinger a successor to the Grand Inquisitors.
As of 31 December 2005, there were 558 people with Vatican citizenship, of whom 246 are dual-citizens of other countries (the majority being Italian)
Among the 558 were:
293 members of the clergy who serve as diplomatic envoys abroad.
62 lesser-ranking clergy members who work in the Vatican;
101 officers NOCs, and men of the Papal Swiss Guard.
43 lay persons.
What have the World done, to this religious system that was placed with immunity in Rome, by the Fascists?
170 nations have recognized this Mussolini promoted statehood. Giving the Papal system the right to issue their own passport, and to avoid criminal trials wherever they travel.
You can not become a citizen of the Vatican by birth, like citizenship is given in other states. You have to be appointed such a citizenship, by the Pope or the Papal Secretary of State.
The Vatican protects its own Roman priesthood. Catholic Bishops who have committed a crime in any nation, can be released by the Vatican form his duty.
The very next day, the vicar of Rome, can be given a ticket to Rome and hid from both Police investigations and criminal court trials.
The Vatican is the perfect hide out for criminal offenses committed in the name of religion. And even worse: In the name of Christianity.
Roman Catholics call Rome the “Eternal City”. The Bible have only one eternal city, and that is Jerusalem. First the physical Jerusalem, followed by the Heavenly Jerusalem.
1. Chronicles 23:25
For David had said, “Since the LORD, the God of Israel, has granted rest to his people and has come to dwell in Jerusalem forever.
The copy-cat Jerusalem of Rome is also mentioned in the Holy scriptures, that explains her tragic end:
“Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her: death, mourning and famine.
She will be consumed by fire for mighty is the Lord God who judges her.
When the kings of the earth who committed adultery with her and shared her luxury see the smoke of her burning, they will weep and mourn over her.
Terrified at her torment, they will stand far off and cry: ” ‘Woe! Woe, O great city, O Babylon, city of power!
In one hour your doom has come!’”
(end of scripture).
And you still keep on looking for the whore of Babylon, the very church of anti-Christ?

Some teachers claim the bride of Christ will be taken away before the trouble of the Great tribulation.
The Prosperity gospel claims the Church will not suffer agony and pain, but walk in victory and always be successful. Many teachers tell us that there are new seasons coming, and everyone with perfect faith can enjoy health and wealth in the last days.
The teachers of a pre tribulation rapture of the Church, use the bride of the book of Revelation as a picture on the Church. The message is that the Church has be presented beautiful, happy and spotless when she face the Messiah coming to take her home.
There are many problem with this message.
A Christian who in 2010 become a martyr, was not necessarily a pretty site. Its easy to conclude that a beaten, bloody and headless saint must have misunderstood the gospel of “fame, perfect health and wealth”.
John 3:29 The bride belongs to the bridegroom. The friend who attends the bridegroom waits and listens for him, and is full of joy when he hears the bridegroom’s voice. That joy is mine, and it is now complete.
Not even priceless amount of make up could have made such a perfect bride of Christ fit into a false “beauty queen doctrine”.
Luke 21:15-17 For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict. You will be betrayed even by parents, brothers, relatives and friends, and they will put some of you to death. All men will hate you because of me.
In regards to focus, commitment, faithfulness to the persecuted Messiah, the martyr’s seems to have understood the Gospel. They have correctly rejected the false “beauty parlor gospel”, and become a living sacrifice for Jesus our Lord. Surely Blameless, and without spots.
What kind of worldly pleasure have the bide of Christ renounced?
Basically the bride has refused to become a “good looking prostitute”. Be aware that just before the wedding feast, the great prostitute, the Whore of Babylon will be exposed. She will surely be both rich and adored.
The exposure of both the bride of Christ and the great prostitute will take place inside the Great Tribulation, the very season of wrath from God.
Revelation 19 Hallelujah! After this I heard what sounded like the roar of a great multitude in heaven shouting: “Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God, for true and just are his judgments. He has condemned the great prostitute who corrupted the earth by her adulteries. He has avenged on her the blood of his servants.” And again they shouted: “Hallelujah! The smoke from her goes up for ever and ever.”
The bride of Christ has not corrupted her self.
Revelation 19:6-8 Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting:
“Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns.
Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear.” (Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of the saints.)
(end of this scripture).
Its also worth to take notice of another bride, the New Heavenly Jerusalem:
Revelation 21:2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.
Another problems with the “Bride in the sky” doctrine, is the Church being separated from Israel, who alone will suffer in the Great Tribulation.
That is a doctrine of true replacement theology. Israel alone will have to deal with the final antichrist.
The third problem with such doctrines, is that the Book of Revelation teach that there will be saints coming out of the Great Tribulation, that have been washed in the blood the Lamb. So obviously, both Israel and the Holy Spirit have been left behind when the Church was “taken away”.
The third question, is related to the need to take the bride away from the Earth. She will be separated for a wedding feast in Heaven, and later brought back to the Planet for the final judgment and separation.
If the Church is not coming back again from Heaven, Jesus has to take the goats with him to Heaven as well. This is neither in accordance with the scripture, nor is it logic. Since the separation of the righteous and the wicked will take place on Earth at the very end, the Church have to be present where the Holy Spirit has called her to be. With Him.
The doctrine of the pre tribulation rapture of a perfected and spotless bride, do require three comings of the Lord. One as the Lamb of God, one as the bridegroom, and one as the Lion of Judah.
In my Bible I can only read about two comings of the Messiah. I believe the coming of the Messiah as the bridegroom and the Lion of Judah will be one and the same.
We have to keep our oil burning, and keep enough oil. From the Apostolic age up towards our days, all Christians have been called to be ready for both a sudden coming of the Lord and a bumpy and painful ride ahead.
Lets take a deeper look, and use more scriptures from the book of Revelation. Please consider my objections based on the scripture.
Revelation 14:6 Then I saw another angel flying in midair, and he had the eternal gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth—to every nation, tribe, language and people.
Revelation 12:17 Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to make war against the rest of her offspring—those who obey God’s commandments and hold to the testimony of Jesus.
Revelation 11:3-8 And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth.” 4These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before the Lord of the earth. 5If anyone tries to harm them, fire comes from their mouths and devours their enemies. This is how anyone who wants to harm them must die.
To those who proclaim that the book of Revelation must be read in chronological order, it must be noticed that the rapture is not taking place at the beginning of the book of Revelation. It comes after a lot of exposure, wrath and persecution in Chapter 11.
Revelation 11:11-12. But after the three and a half days a breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and terror struck those who saw them. Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” And they went up to heaven in a cloud, while their enemies looked on.
In Revelation chapter 12, the story of the people of Israel is also revealed. Many of those events explained her, is linked to the preparation of the first coming of Jesus.
The doctrine of the pre Great tribulation rapture of “the Church” and her wedding fest in Heaven, while another Church is formed inside the Great Tribulation, does not make sense.
28th of December 2011: Two Roman Catholic Churches in Croatia held memorial masses for Nazi-leader Ante Pavelic.
The Simon Wiesenthal Center condemned a memorial Mass in two Catholic churches in Croatia for Ante Pavelic, the fascist leader of the country under the Nazi regime.
The Mass, held Dec. 28 in Zagreb and Split to mark the anniversary of Pavelic’s death in 1959, “is a disgrace for the Croatian people,” Efraim Zuroff, the center’s director in Jerusalem, said in a statement. He called on Croatian authorities to ban commemorations of Pavelic’s death.
Under Pavelic’s Ustasha regime during World War II, hundreds of thousands of Serbs, as well as Jewish and Roma civilians, were imprisoned and murdered in Croatian death camps.
Zuroff called the Mass “a total ridicule of Christian values” and an insult to Pavelic’s victims.
Was the Roman Catholic Church silent on Nazism before and under World War II?
This is a matter of dispute. Disputed, because the Vatican have not opened its war files. The files in Berlin were destroyed.
The Vatican relations with the Nazi proxy regime in Croatia, expose the nexus. Not only were the Roman Catholic priests and bishops active supporters of the Pavelic-regime. Even today the Roman Catholics in Croatia hail the memories of the Nazis.
The late Pope has done his best to please his subjects in Croatia. John Paul II beautified the local Cardinal Aloysius Stepinac who hailed Pavelic. The Present Pope kneeled and prayed in front of the wax corpse of the beautified bishop during his visit to Croatia 4th of June 2011.
87,8 of the population in Croatia are Roman Catholics.
This is what Wikipedia has recorded about Nazi leader Ante Pavelic and Bishop Stepinac.
During World War II, on 6 April 1941, Yugoslavia was invaded by Nazi Germany and its allies.
The (Allied) Yugoslav forces maintained a defense up until 17 April. On 10 April 1941, the Wehrmacht occupied Zagreb.
Having previously agreed to form a Croatian satellite, the Germans and Italians established therein the Independent State of Croatia, and installed the Ustaše movement into power. Fiercely nationalistic, the Ustaše were also fanatically Catholic.
In the Yugoslav political context, they identified Catholicism with Croatian nationalism and, once established in power, set about persecuting and murdering non-Catholics.
As the archbishop of the capital, Stepinac enjoyed close associations with the Ustaše leaders.
Stepinac publicly exhorted his hierarchy to pray for the Independent State of Croatia, and publicly called for God to “fill the Ustaše leader, Ante Pavelić, with a spirit of wisdom for the benefit of the nation”.
Here are some picture of these two war criminals:
Pope John Paul II, surrounded by Roman Catholic clergy, praying in front of remains of Aloysius Stepinac, responsible for the genocide of 750.000 Serbs, 60.000 Jews and 30.000 Gypsies massacred in the name of religious purification. The Pope beatified Stepinac in Croatia on October 3, 1998.
1 John 2:18 Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour.
John the Apostle saw the first Messianic Jews being massacred, and taught that the last hours were there. He thought is could not get much worse. It could.
Matthew 23:33 “You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell?
