Pope or Payseur?
God long ago revealed the principle power structure the devil works through. Satan's authority was exercised through a succession of pagan world empires culminating in Rome, which transferred this authority to Papal Rome.
Rev. 13:2 - And to it the dragon gave his power and his throne and great authority.
Historically, this event can be seen in the CODE OF JUSTINIAN where the power of the Roman Emperors was transferred to the Papacy. The 1260 years of papal supremacy which followed was marked by inquisitions, wars, and horrors beyond belief.
Rome is the city on seven hills which rules over the kings of men and buys and sells the children of men. (Rev.17:9. 18:3). The Aramaic version in plain English actually translates it as CHILDREN of men. Others versions have "bodies and souls of men". It's human trafficking any way you slice it.
The Black Nobility and other wealthy families are intertwined with the Vatican. Don't mistake the Payseur family or any of the others as the ultimate evil, they are just close to the source.
In historicist eschatology, revelation shows a false religious system, pictured as a corrupt woman who rides a beast. The beast is the political entity it controls. It is Church controlling State. The framers of the constitution tried to guard against this evil in America by separating Church and State.
In prophecy the Papacy is seen as breathing life into an image of the old Roman Empire, which is now the EU and its associated globalist structures.
When researching the Illuminati, keep in mind that the Bavarian Illuminati was formed by Adam Weishaupt, a Jesuit professor of canon law. At the time, the Jesuits were suppressed and needed to go underground.
There is a bewildering pile of misinformation and misdirection as you approach the upper echelons. Everything from the Protocols of Zion to the Holy Blood, Holy Grail fiction.
Beware their deceptive tactics. They blame the Jews for all the evils in the world and employ court Jews and capos to make the accusation seem credible. They use bloodline families, knighthoods, and secret societies to insulate themselves and carry out their agenda. Look past them and see the source of the evil.
The whore of Babylon is the corrupt Church that rides the beast (political empire) she controls. It is Rome which makes the families and entities that collaborate with it immensely rich and powerful. The Vatican is the very font of evil, a false religious system clothed in robes of righteousness. It murdered millions during the inquistions and in modern times it has been in league with the Mafia, the Nazis, and the CIA, as shown in this document posted by QANON.
Without the Papacy, it all crumbles. The Vatican is the hub, the nexus of evil that God himself identified in prophecy (not the Payseur family - important though they are to the puzzle).
The Papacy has been known to be the little horn of Daniel 7 and the anti-Christ power since the 16th century and even earlier.
"A Great Cloud of Witnesses:"Wycliffe, Tyndale, Luther, Calvin, Cranmer, Bunyan, the translators of the King James Bible and the men who published the Westminster and Baptist confessions of Faith; Sir Isaac Newton, Wesley, Whitfield, Jonathan Edwards; and more recently Spurgeon, Bishop J.C. Ryle and Dr. Martin Lloyd-Jones; these men among countless others, all saw the office of the Papacy as the antichrist." Taken from All Roads Lead to Rome, by Michael de Semlyen. Dorchestor House Publications, p. 205. 1991.
The counter-reformation has all but wiped this fact from the minds of men and filled Christendom with false teachers. The traditional protestant eschatology called historicism was supplanted with Jesuit futurism (and preterism). The vast majority of people, including most Christians today, have been blinded by Jesuit lies.
You don't need to know everything in detail but at least pick up the story at WW 2. It was orchestrated by the Jesuits - the Nazis are their creation. That's why the Catholic ratlines were used to smuggle their Nazi stooges to South America and into the CIA (Catholics in Action) after the war.
Here is a free PDF download. It's a book called "The Secret History of the Jesuits" by Edmond Paris. It has the true history of WW2, not the version Rome's revisionist historians have fed everyone.
We are heading into the "judgement of the great whore" (Rev. 17-18). If you are part of that system get out now, flee as fast as you can. Don't give it your money, your allegiance, or especially your children.
God also warned that the whore of Babylon would have harlot daughters. Some of the Protestant churches are almost as corrupt as their mother. The Vatican has made sure they turned out that way by infiltration and corruption. Beware of false doctrines, false teachers, and institutional religion in general. Worship God in Spirit and in truth.
