On the heels of the “Anglican Destination Ordinariate” of wooing the Anglican priesthood and eventually the Anglican Church back into the “body” of the Roman Catholic Church, we return back into the historical milieu of the 16th and 17th century Protestant Revolt. The revolt became part of the historical background for the colonization of the North America British colonies by the Puritans first and others seeking a land to live in peace with “religious freedom”.
As the 13th Original Colonies began to develop and flower into their own individual states, it is also amazing to realize the finger of the Divine as the number 13 represented the 13th Tribes of Israel. It was the House of Joseph that was given a “double portion” of the tribal land heritage by the Patriarch Jacob (Israel) to be a heritage for both of his sons. The eldest, Manasseh is represented today by the United States of America. The youngest son, Ephraim, is represented today by Great Britain, who was given the official tribal blessing of the House of Joseph. (Genesis 48:12-21)
Yet it was the Protestant Reformation in Europe against the power and corruption of the Roman Catholic Church that gave the fodder and groundwork for the eventual Protestant Revolt known as the “Protestant Reform Movement”. It eventually established Protestantism as a constitutional branch of contemporary Christianity. Yet, once again this cannot be understood outside of the context that the Protestant Revolt was a revolt by the Lost Ten Lost Tribes of the House of Israel against the spiritual hegemony and control of the Roman Catholic Church power and authority over their temporal and spiritual lives and the lands of their habitation.
Put into a simple context: Protestantism or the Protest-ant Revolt was a revolt of the Lost 10 Tribes of the House of Israel against the spiritual and temporal power of Rome (Edom). This protest went way back before the 4th century with the invasion of the Lost Tribe of Israel’s invasions into Europe as the Germanic tribes of the Ostrogoths, the Visigoths, and the Vandals.
It was the Goths of the Tribe of Gad that hastened the “Decline of the Roman Empire”. After the death of Constantine the Great in 337 CE, his magnificent empire that expanded from the Western Roman Empire in Rome to the Eastern Roman Empire with its eastern capital at Constantinople, went into decline. The dream of Constantine the Great of a world empire under the spiritual and temporal power of “Pontiff of Roman Christianity” was a dream that was never fulfilled. That dream is alive and well in the Vatican today.
So in February, 2011, the Russian State visit by President Dmitri Medvedev with his wife and daughter had subterranean currents as deep as an arctic iceberg. As shown in this Vatican U-Tube presentation titled, “Russian President Dmitri Medvedev visits Pope at the Vatican”, we ponder its deepest meaning in fulfilling the Vatican’s global conquest to take hegemony over the “temporal and spiritual” governance of every nation on Planet Earth.
Rome Reports.com – “This is the second time that Russian President Dmitri Medvedev has visited Benedict XVI. It was a meeting that the Pope has called “very important,” immediately after receiving the president in the doorway to his library. They spoke privately for about 35 minutes, more than usual for such State visits. They recognized their partnership in promoting human and Christian values as well as the importance of interreligious dialogue. They also exchanged views on the current situation of the Middle East.
It was their first meeting after the opening of full diplomatic relations between Russia and the Holy See, which until recently had only permanent representatives. The Russian president gave the Pope an “Orthodox Encyclopedia” and two volumes of letters from his predecessor Boris Yeltsin to other heads of State, including Pope John Paul II. The Pope enjoyed the books because he said he would like to learn Russian and read them. In return Benedict XVI gave the president an elegant medallion of St. Peter's Basilica as well as several rosaries to his staff. The Russian president was accompanied by his wife Svetlana, Vice President Alexander Zhukov and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
After their first meeting in December of 2009, the Vatican and Russia announced the establishment of full diplomatic relations. There was an increase of warmth between the two which may open the chance for a meeting between the Pope and thePatriarch of Moscow, possibly in neutral territory."
Medvedev is the fourth Russian president to visit the Pope. A gesture that for so many years seemed almost impossible! The first Russian president who entered the Vatican was the then Soviet Union President, Mikhail Gorbachev. On December 1, 1989, just days after the fall of the Berlin Wall.”
Before our eyes, history was unfolding but few people noticed. This is how the “time of the end” is advancing. Under the radar screen of movies, sports, and mega-entertainment, the subterranean events of the final apocalypse is being carried out.
It was 1978, and the Curia of the Vatican announced to the world that a new era was to come upon the earth with their selection of a new pope of the Roman Catholic Church. As BibleSearchers reported on this event, in the article titled, “Pope John Paul II and the Three Global Internationales”, we read how John Paul II choreographed that “The Church” as “The Vatican” and his path of spiritual internationalism would eventually vault the Vatican to become the “temporal and spiritual ruler” of all the earth:
BibleSearchers Reflections – “As a rebel, a non-conformist linked with the masses of the people, is it any wonder that upon Pope John Paul II’s first press conference to two thousand journalists in the Vatican and 125 members of the Vatican diplomatic corp. representing one hundred countries, he spoke of his destiny to bring the papacy into the new road of papal internationalism.
Pope John Paul II - “It is not our business to judge the actions of government… But there is no way the dignity and the right of all men and every human individual can be served unless that dignity and those rights are seen as founded on the life, death and resurrection of Christ…The Church seeks no privileges for herself, but we do desire a dialogue with the nations”… even though the Church’s diplomatic relations with so many countries “do not necessarily imply the approval of one or another regime – that is not our business…We have an appreciation of the positive temporal values, a willingness for dialogue with those who are legitimately charged with the common good of society, and the understanding of their role, which is often difficult.”
At the ceremony of his coronation, Wojtyla, like his predecessor, John Paul I, quickly rejected the papal triple tiara which he claimed was “wrongly considered to be a symbol of temporal power of the pope.” It was only clear in part as he spoke in ten languages to billions of people around the world, “Open wide the doors of Christ. To his saving power the boundaries of states, economic and political systems, the vast fields of culture and civilization and development. Do not be afraid…I want your support in this, my mission.”
He quickly vaulted the office of the papacy to beyond the scope of temporal power which the tiara symbolized and expressed his mission to exercise the spiritual authority and moral mandate he felt was divinely given to him over those who did wield temporal power over their subjects.
The “temporal world” and all of its rulers, the media, the industrialists, and the bureaucratic power brokers, were suddenly put on notice, Pope John Paul II was to bring a new era to the Holy See. With an independence of mind and a flare for the unusual, he quickly hit the road first to Assisi and then Siena, over to the summer papal residence of Castel Gandolfo, the mountain shrine of La Mentorella and unusual events like visiting an ailing bishop in a Roman hospital. The public loved him and though a Pole by birth the Italians adopted him as il nostro polacco – our Pole and “Papa Wojtyla.” Walking in St. Peter’s Square, he was mobbed and many times left with papal buttons missing and red lipstick on the white papal cloak.
This new image suited this new Pope. It kept him in the public eye with the admiration of the masses yet immune from conspiratorial, suspicious or prying eyes. The simple white robe and skull cap, the Fisherman’s Ring on his index finger, the ambience of ‘divine’ rituals gave a simple meaning; here was a religious leader to be trusted and loved. For awhile, he stood in a ‘one-way geo-political window’ unobserved and undisturbed. With all the international intelligence of the papacy, the historical archives of the Vatican, the legends and prophecies secreted by the Holy See and the privilege to call any leader around the world and discuss in private consultation any subject of his choosing, John Paul began to exert his spiritual mandate upon the political powers on the earth.
Behind all his musings of the historical trends and political events unfolding around him, the words of Karol Wojtyla’s mentor, Cardinal Wyszynski of Warsaw whom he worked for thirty years were fresh in his mind. Cardinal Wyszynski has been dubbed the “Fox of Europe” because he carried out the “first and only geopolitical strategy every carried out against an Eastern satellite nation against the Soviet Union.”
Here together, the mentor and the student and future Pope, they saw a world of the immerging “Three Internationales”, the three geopolitical contenders for the future world power.
“There exist on this earth, Wyszynski used to say, only three Internationales. The ‘Golden Internationale’ was his shorthand term for the financial power of the world – the Transnationalist and Internationalist globalist leaders of the West.
The ‘Red Internationale’ was, of course, the Leninist-Marxist Party State of the Soviet Union, with which he and Wojtyla and their compatriots had such long and painfully intimate experience.”
The third geopolitical contender – The Roman Catholic Church; the ‘Black Internationale’ – was destined in Wysynskyi’s eyes to be the ultimate victor in any contention with those rivals.”
With the meeting of Russian President Dmitri Medvedev with Pope Benedict XVI, the Russian nation joins the United States and all other major nations in the world except China (and Viet Nam) in signing a Concordat and establishing full diplomatic relations with Rome. President Ronald Reagan signed a Concordat with Rome, 27 years ago on January 10, 1984 with Pope John Paul II. As posted on Israel National News on December 29, 2010, China is still resisting:
Israel National News – “Skirmishing between the Vatican and the Chinese Communist Party reached strident tones this week after Pope Benedict expressed his hope that the Christmas holiday would "strengthen the spirit of faith, patience and courage of the faithful of the Church in mainland China that they may not lose heart through the limitations imposed on their freedom of religion and conscience."
Global Times , effectively the English counterpart of the official Communist Party People's Daily fired back "The pontiff sounded more like a western politician than a religious leader . . . before the pope attacks China’s internal affairs, he may want to rethink the Vatican’s so-called role as a protector of religious freedom…"
In 2007 Benedict tried to close the rift between the state-supported patriotic Catholics and the clandestine Catholics in China. The pope wrote that there was only one Church, and that most of the state "patriotic" bishops respected Rome. He urged these bishops to make this relationship public. Simultaneously he urged underground bishops to find a way to get government certification so they would no longer have to remain secret leaders.
Benedict also claimed in a letter that Catholicism could prosper under different political regimes - a hint that the Communist Party did not have to fear the church as a subversive force that would undermine its political hegemony. Despite the improved relations, the Chinese Communists who blame the Vatican for the fall of the Soviet bloc, remained unconvinced…”
With the nations of the world now coming into a global temporal relationship with Vatican Rome, Pope Benedict XVI is preparing to have a secret meeting with the Patriarch Cyril of Moscow, of the Russian Orthodox Christian Church. The ecumenical link between the Three Great Religions of the world may be about complete. The prophetic march to the G-d’s “Appointed Time” continues unchecked.
