The next day, he [Lincoln] kindly took me [Chiniquy] with him in his carriage, when visiting the thirty thousand wounded soldiers picked up on the battle-fields of the seven days’ battle of the Wilderness, and the thirty days’ battle around Richmond, where Grant was just breaking the backbone of the rebellion. On the way to and from the hospitals, I could not talk much. The noise of the carriage rapidly drawn on the pavement was too great. Besides that, my soul was so much distressed, and my heart so much broken by the sight of the horrors of that fratricidal war, that my voice was as stifled. The only thought which seemed to occupy the mind of the President was the part which Rome had in that horrible struggle. Many times he repeated:
“This war would never have been possible without the sinister influence of the Jesuits. We owe it to Popery that we now see our land reddened with the blood of her noblest sons. Though there were great differences of opinion between the South and the North, on the question of slavery, neither Jeff Davis nor any one of the leading men of the Confederacy would have dared to attack the North, had they not relied on the promises of the Jesuits, that under the mask of Democracy, the money and the arms of the Roman Catholic, even the arms of France, were at their disposal, if they would attack us. I pity the priests, the bishops and the monks of Rome in the United States, when the people realize that they are, in great part, responsible for the tears and the blood shed in this war; the later the more terrible will the retribution be. I conceal what I know, on that subject, from the knowledge of the nation; for if the people knew the whole truth, this war would turn into a religious war, and it would, at once, take a tenfold more savage and bloody character, it would become merciless as all religious wars are. It would become a war of extermination on both sides. The Protestants of both the North and the South would surely unite to exterminate the priests and the Jesuits, if they could hear what Professor Morse has said to me of the plots made in the very city of Rome to destroy this Republic, and if they could learn how the priests, the nuns, and the monks, which daily land on our shores, under the pretext of preaching their religion, instructing the people in their schools, taking care of the sick in the hospitals, are nothing else but the emissaries of the Pope, of Napoleon, and the other despots of Europe, to undermine our institutions, alienate the hearts of our people from our constitution, and our laws, destroy our schools, and prepare a reign of anarchy here as they have done in Ireland, in Mexico, in Spain, and wherever there are any people who want to be free, ect.” ~ Fifty Years in the Church of Rome
Margaret McDonald, EXPOSED—Dave MacPherson: INCREDIBLE COVER-UP
In these verses you have the entire story of the Papacy, and what is more, you have its future as well as its past, the judgment of God as to its moral character and deserts. …
…we are not left to guess the meaning and application of this particular monster. The symbol has a Divine interpretation. “The fourth beast,” we read, “shall be the fourth kingdom upon the earth.” That, beyond all question, was Rome, as all historians agree ù the fourth and last of the great universal empires of antiquity. The monster represents Rome, her whole existence as a supreme or ruling power, after the fall of the Greek or Macedonian beast before her attacks (197 B.C.). It represents therefore the history of Rome for over 2,000 years in the past, and on into a time still future; for, be it well noted, this beast ravages and rules, and his characteristic little horn blasphemes and boasts, right up to the point when empires like to wild beasts come to an end, and “the Son of man and the saints of the Most High take the kingdom and possess it for ever.”
It is important that we should clearly grasp one great historical fact; i.e. the rule of Rome has never, since it first commenced, ceased to exist, save once, for a very brief period during the Gothic invasions. It has changed in character, as we have seen, but it has continued. Rome ruled the known world at the first advent of Christ, and still rules hundreds of millions of mankind, and will continue so to do right up till the second advent of Christ. So this prophecy teaches; for not until the Son of man takes the dominion of the earth, and establishes a kingdom that shall never pass away, is the monster representing Roman rule destroyed. The rule of Rome, we repeat, has never ceased. It was a secular pagan power for five or six centuries; it has been an ecclesiastical and apostate Christian power ever since, that is to say, for twelve or thirteen centuries. There lay a brief period between these two main stages, during which professing Christian emperors ruled from Rome, followed by an interval when, for a time, it seemed as if the great city had received a fatal blow from her Gothic captors. It seemed so; but it was not so, for the word of God cannot be broken. The rule of Rome revived in a new form, and was as real under the popes of the thirteenth century as it had been under the Caesars of the first. It was as oppressive, cruel, and bloody under Innocent III. as it had been under Nero and Domitian. The reality was the same, though the forms had changed. The Caesars did not persecute the witnesses of Jesus more severely and bitterly than did the popes; Diocletian did not destroy the saints or oppose the gospel more than did the Inquisition of Papal days. Rome is one and the same all through, both locally and morally. One dreadful wild beast represents her, though the symbol, like the history it prefigures, has two parts. There was the undivided stage, and there has been the tenfold stage. The one is Rome pagan, the other Rome Papal; the one is the old empire, the other the modern pontificate; the one is the empire of the Caesars, the other is the Roman Papacy. ~ Romanism and the Reformation, Henry Grattan Guinness

12 “Have you ever in your life commanded the morning,

13 That it might take hold of the ends of the Earth,
And the wicked be shaken out of it?
14 “It is changed like clay under the seal;
And they stand forth like a garment.
15 From the wicked their light is withheld,
And the uplifted arm is broken.”

10 ‘Now these were the visions in my mind as I lay on my bed: I was looking, and behold, there was a tree in the midst of the Earth and its height was great.
11 ‘The tree grew large and became strong
And its height reached to the sky,
And it was visible to the end of the whole Earth.
8 Again, the devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory; 9 and he said to Him, “All these things I will give You, if You fall down and worship me.” 10 Then Jesus said to him, “Go, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the L-rd your G-d, and serve Him only.’” 11 Then the devil left Him; and behold, angels came and began to minister to Him.

12 And He will lift up a standard for the nations
And assemble the banished ones of Israel,
And will gather the dispersed of Judah
From the four corners of the Earth.
7 After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the Earth, holding back the four winds of the Earth, so that no wind would blow on the Earth or on the sea or on any tree.
The Earth is a Circle
22 It is He who sits above the circle of the Earth,
And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers,
Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain
And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.
The Sky is a Fixed Scroll
4 And (A)all the host of heaven will wear away,
And the (B)sky will be rolled up like a scroll;
All their hosts will also wither away
As a leaf withers from the vine,
Or as one withers from the fig tree.
35 Thus says the L-rd,
Who gives the sun for light by day
And the fixed order of the moon and the stars for light by night,
Who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar;
The L-rd of Hosts is His Name:
36 “If this fixed order departs
From before Me,” declares the L-rd,
“Then the offspring of Israel also will cease
From being a nation before Me forever.”
12 I looked when He broke the Sixth Seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood; 13 and the stars of the sky fell to the Earth, as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind. 14 The sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

And night to night reveals knowledge.
3 There is no speech, nor are there words;
Their voice is not heard.
4 Their line has gone out through all the Earth,
And their utterances to the end of the world.
In them He has placed a tent for the sun,
5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber;
It rejoices as a strong man to run his course.
6 Its rising is from one end of the heavens,
And its circuit to the other end of them;
And there is nothing hidden from its heat.

EARTH SPINNING AND MOVING RAPIDLY THROUGH SPACE, SOLAR SYSTEM, GALAXY AND UNIVERSE?
Look up “He has fixed the Earth…”
- DOES NOT ROTATE: In the beginning the earth did not spin.
- DOES NOT ROTATE – AT THE PRESENT TIME: The earth continues standing still until midway through the tribulation period. The firmament, enclosing the sun, moon and stars, rotates daily around the earth. The firmament must rotate to exist.
- ROTATES – LAST HALF OF TRIBULATION – Isaiah 13:13: God miraculously causes the firmament to instantly stop rotating and the earth to instantly begin rotating, to provide day and night. The world gets what it has always believed and which embarrasses God’s word. The universe is unstable.
- DOES NOT ROTATE – MILLENNIUM – Haggai 2:6,7: The earth does not rotate and the firmament does, which is normal and stable.
- ROTATES – SATAN LOOSED – Hebrews 12:26,27: When Satan is loosed for a season, God shakes the heavens and the earth causing the firmament to stop its daily rotation and the earth to rotate.
- NEITHER THE FIRMAMENT NOR THE EARTH ROTATE -JUDGMENT DAY: For judgment day God again shakes the heavens and earth.. The firmament is stationary and now the earth stops.– Job 38:12,137.
- DAY AND NIGHT ROTATES: Day and night rotates forever inside the great gulf. Luke 16:26*
Isaiah 13:13 says, “Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.” God is angry with the wicked and gives them heliocentrism, which they have always wanted because it embarrasses God’s word. The universe is now, not in a stable condition, it is not reality and is against God’s word. Without God’s supernatural power to hold it together, the universe would instantly vaporize. Isaiah 2:19 says, “And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.” The wicked try to hide from God. Amos 1:2 says, “And he said, The Lord will roar from Zion…” Psalm 33:9 says, “For he spake, and it was done…” As the universe was created when God spoke, surely something must have happened when He roared. There is a collision in outer space! The biggest and most colossal wreck of all time occurs in the universe. The sun and moon, which weigh next to nothing compared to the firmament; instantly hit the massive firmament. Isaiah 30:26 – “…the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun and the light of the sun shall be seven-fold, as the light of seven days…” As in any crash that we know of, there often is an explosion and a flash of light.
Malachi 4:2 says, “But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings. “If the Sun doesn’t really move (rise), then the Son hasn’t risen.
