I thank You, because through Jesus, I AM free, blessed, honored, and privileged to have this relationship with You, and the ability to come Boldly before You!! Thank You, Father, that you hear me… And I know You hear me Always!!! Boy was I MAD, as You already know! Our local Newspaper published an article and I want to talk to You about it!
The article was «Vatican on the Road» – Road Kill??? It was distasteful to me, and made me angry. Then I thought, «No, I won’t get angry, I›ll do what we have been learning to do… ‹Search The Scriptures›». Here is what I found:
- The word Vatican is not Scriptural? The closest I could come was Vatic! Vatic means «madness», which is in the Scriptures nine (9) times. «Mad» is also mentioned twenty two (22) times.
- The «Fisherman’s Ring» is not mentioned in the Scriptures…??
- The «Madonna del Sassoferrato, and the «Mandylion of Edessa» are not mentioned either???
All these things have been conceived and created by corruptible man, as Paul said in Romans 1:22-25
The center of the display is a «reliquary», (Scripture: N/A) A silver and gold box full of DEAD MEN›S BONES!!! These bones are alleged to be those of Peter and other Saints. This «blew me out of the water…» The very ones who executed not only Peter and Paul, …Butt Christ, and thousands of other Christians, are now trying to make us believe that they are the Foundation of their so called «MOTHER CHURCH.»
Paul declared plainly, «For no one can lay any foundation other than the one we already have – Jesus Christ.» *1 Corinthians 3:11* Jesus Christ is our foundation, and «The Cornerstone.»
They say they are «The Mother Church», and we should pray to «The Mother of God -Mary?» …Butt You said, «Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all. Galatians 4:26 The only other mother, written of in The Scriptures, found in Rome, was «THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS»…
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: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. Revelation 17:4-5
Even Paul, after witnessing the idolatry of many nations, would not have believed that any man could have the audacity to call himself, «Holy Father» Surely, he would have warned us??? Jesus, himself, not only said, «be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren», …Butt «Call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.» Matthew 23: 8-9 If you want to be a member of their church, you must call all of their Priests – Father… in direct disobedience to Your Word!!!
It is as Jesus said, «For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.» Matthew 24:7 I started to reflect and began thinking about «The Beginning» of Your Word, and the warnings in Genesis…
Hath God said? This really is the only question worth asking. Yes, God hath said, «Of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.» Genesis 2:17 …Butt The Serpent / Satan said, «Ye shall not surely die.» Genesis 3:4 We know how it ended… «All the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died.» Genesis 5:5
I look into my heart, and find Your «Laws of Love» written there – what Joy!!! Then a «Word» came into my mind, I have «The Mind of Christ», and I›m sure this is where it came from… The Word was – Counterfeit
Counterfeit: A copy designed to deceive…
Then I understood The Mother Church is the Mother of Harlots The Harlots are all the Denominational Churches that sprang forth from Her! They are counterfeit, for «such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.» 2nd Corinthians 11:13-15
The Scriptures say, You have built for us a City, Mount Zion, which is above …Butt They built their own City – Vatican City, which is below.
You are Our Father, and we are begotten by the Word of Truth of The Gospel!!! Satan is Their Father, the Father of Lies… He begets his children with the Words of Lies – for He was from «The Beginning», A Liar, Thief, and Murderer, and No Truth is in him or his followers.
How blessed we are to have The Scriptures, Your Written Word, to guide and teach us!!!
Suddenly I began to laugh, «Laughter is the Best Medicine.» I saw «The Road Show» going into the ditch, and dumping all the Silver and Gold into the mire.
My prayer Father, is that all those who read this will laugh at their attempt to impress us, Your Children, with their «Side Show».
So Father, by faith, we expose this evil, and pray Your Angels chase them.
Why should we even look at these things? You have told us to: «Look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.» 2nd Corinthian 4:18
Why would we seek after these things? You have said, «If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.» Colossians 3:1-2
Not only are we set for the defense of the Gospel, the Gospel is set for our defense!!!
Your Little Lamb
PS – I couldn’t find out anything about Your mother…
