The Great Monarch and Petrus Romanus – Part 4

Who is the Great Monarch?
You may ask why is Petrus Romanus and the Great Monarch the same person? The answer is quite simple; he is Eucharistic man, priest of God, anointed ruler, and restored to the image and likeness of God. Moses was both the ‘political’ and ‘religious’ leader and Aaron was appointed by God and consecrated High Priest by Moses (Ex 28:41).
Aaron molded the idol of the golden calf. Aaron sinned.
Samuel was both the religious and political leader and anointed Saul ‘king.’
In disobedience Saul made the sacrifice without waiting for Samuel as instructed. Saul sinned.

Saint Peter was appointed the Vicar of Christ and exercised his office with dignity and propriety. Jesus appointed this Peter as the Vicar of Christ, that is His agent or substitute. Peter’s successors in these the last days, from John XXIII to the present Francis have sinned. By not renouncing the actions of the de facto excommunication of the 33 degree Freemason Angelo Roncalli, priest, bishop, cardinal and pope, they
1) embraced the Satanic cult of Freemasonry established by John XXIII in the Roman Catholic Church,
2) they have not rebuked his kneeling to the satanic president of France to receive the cardinal’s hat – thereby giving his allegiance to the Devil, who through John XXIII gave the establishment of the Vatican to Satan,
3) they have changed the Word of God and contradicted previous Church Councils,
4) they have politicized the Papal Office to the point of seeking ‘political correctness’ at the expense of the God’s Law.
All the latter from the above John have desecrated God’s law and have sinned.

Because of these great and sinful errors, God must ‘clean house,’ He must do ‘a new thing.’ It is necessary that the priesthood should be translated and “that a translation also be made of the law” (Hb 7:12) as we saw in Part 2. God will keep His promise, and it is obvious that the Satanic house of Zionism, Freemasonry and Communism will be totally destroyed: “I the Lord, this is My Name, I will not give My glory to another, nor My praise to graven things. The things that were first, behold they are come, and new things do I declare, before they spring forth, I will make you hear them” (Is 42:8,9).

Will He leave the inhabitants of His creation without a ruler? Of course not! Since Jesus Christ is King of all nations (Jn 18:37), it is His pleasure to have the office of Priest and King in the hands of His appointed Eucharistic High Priest and King, Petrus Romanus, the Great Monarch. Eucharistic man only comes into existence through absolute faith in Holy Eucharist. Jesus is Holy Eucharist. Understand this Divine and human, ecclesiastical and temporal unity when Jesus asked the question which the Pharisees could not answer: “How say they that Christ is the Son of David? And David himself says in the book of Psalms: ‘The Lord said to My Lord, sit Thou on My right hand, till I make Thy enemies Thy footstool.’ David then calls Him Lord. And how is he His son?” (Lk 20:41-44). The answer is quite simple. Jesus Christ has two natures: 1) the Divine nature of God, by which, He was Son of God, so then He was the Lord of David, and 2) the human nature of man, according to the genealogy, David was His father. In asserting His unity in God in the one Divine nature, yet two distinct Persons Jesus said: “My sheep hear My voice. And I know them: and they follow Me. And I give them Life Everlasting: and they shall not perish for ever. And no man shall pluck them out of My hand. That which My Father has given Me is greater than all: and no one can snatch them out of the hand of My Father. I and the Father are one” (Jn 10:27-30).

Since man is able to enter into this Divine nature through Holy Communion, and only through Holy Communion, he is called to be one in Christ. Saint Paul emphasizes this Eucharistic unity when he wrote: “For, what I have pardoned, if I have pardoned any thing, for your sakes have I done it in the person of Christ” (2Co 2:10); and again: “You despised not, nor rejected: but received me as an angel of God, even as Christ Jesus…My little children, of whom I am in labour again, until Christ be formed in you” (Ga 4:14,19). He then encourages us to go all the way in this Divine unity: “But doing the truth in charity, we may in all things grow up in Him who is the head, even Christ” (Ep 4:15), and he tells us that in this way we “have the mind of Christ” (1Co 2:16). Saint Peter adds to this subject by saying very clearly: “(Jesus) has given us most great and precious promises, that by these you may be made partakers of the Divine nature flying the corruption of that concupiscence which is in the world” (2P 1:4). All of the above is a very small composite of Eucharistic man. Petrus Romanus – Great Monarch is Eucharistic man.

In the Publisher’s Preface to the book written by Father Culleton entitled ‘The Prophets and Our Times,’ Thomas A Nelson of TAN Publishing wrote in 1974: “…the enemies of God and of His Holy Church will not know where or how to prepare themselves to resist successfully the advent of the Great Monarch. God will nurture this man in His own manner, who, the prophecies seem to indicate, will not even be known to himself until a late moment. When the man finally takes the field, it will be all over for the enemies of God, despite their numerical superiority and seeming greater power.”

The prophet Isaiah speaks of Petrus Romanus – the Great Monarch: “The Gentiles shall see your just one, and all kings your glorious one, and you shall be called by a new name, which the mouth of the Lord shall name.” It goes on to say of him in the following verse: “and you shall be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God” (Is 62:2,3).

Is he a priest of God? Is he a ‘layman’? Until very recently (2013), I only have accepted him as a layman. Why? Because of his temporal power! At that time it was my understanding that because of the work he will be doing in setting up ‘a new government’ of God, that he must have vast experience in ‘things of the world.’ Upon reflection and much prayer, (which I must sadly admit I had preconceived ideas and a closed mind), the words of Sirach got through to me: “Samuel the prophet of the Lord, the beloved of the Lord his God, established a new government, and anointed princes over his people” (Si 46:16). When I read Zachariah for the umpteenth time, I finally accepted what God was trying to impart to me: “Thus saith the Lord of hosts, saying: Behold a man, the Orient is his name, and under him shall he spring up, a shall build a temple to the Lord. Yea, he shall build a temple to the Lord and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit, and rule upon his throne, and he shall be a priest upon his throne, and the counsel of peace shall be between them both” (Zc 6:12,13). The footnote to this verse in the Douay Rheims Bible reads: “…He shall unite in himself the two offices or dignities of king and priest.”

There are those who make the claim that when it says ‘the counsel of peace shall be between them both’ that this means two people, the Great Monarch and Petrus Romanus. This is simply not so. Why? Look to the following: “A great sign appeared in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. And being with child, she cried also travailing, and was in pain to be delivered. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with an iron rod. And her son was taken up to God and to His throne” (Apoc 12:1,2,5). The ‘crown of twelve stars’ on her head, signifies that the Church is the only governing authority in the world, and that all nations must be subject to the Law of God. The ‘sign’ is that God is over all, as it is His universe, and the total authority over the world is in the hands of His anointed Monarch who is Petrus Romanus. This unity and harmony can only be accomplished through Eucharistic unity and oneness in Christ Jesus. St. John wrote: “As many as received Him, He gave them power to be made the sons of God, to them that believe in His Name, who are born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God” (Jn 1:12,13).

Confirming all of this, Jesus said: “That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit…The Spirit breathes where He will and thou hear His voice: but you know not whence He comes and whither he goes, so is every one that is born of the Spirit…That they all may be one, as Thou, Father, in Me, and I in Thee; that they also may be one in Us that the world may believe that Thou hast sent Me. And the glory which Thou hast given Me, I have given to them, that they may be one, as We also are one. I in them, and Thou in Me that they may be made perfect in one, and the world may know that Thou hast sent Me and hast loved them, as Thou hast also loved Me” (Jn 3:6,8; 17:21-23).

God gave to those who would believe in His Name, Divine Power, and with this Divine Power comes the Name of Christ Jesus, for Jesus said: “These signs shall follow them that believe: in My Name they shall cast out Devils” (Mk 16:17). Therefore, when Eucharistic man uses the Divine Power of God, he uses it in unity in God, he uses it in the Name of God, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, which Jesus won for us by His birth, life, passion, death, and resurrection.

Petrus Romanus, the Great Monarch is outside the allurements of the materialistic world controlled by the evil cabal of the Zionist, Masonic and Communist hell. He is sealed with Divine authority, and will have Divine insight into the secret things of Deity. He will be able to bring them forth the Kingdom of God on earth because he is in oneness in Holy Trinity and does all things according to Divine counsel and ordination. He is in unity and counsel and communion in Christ Jesus in all things great and small. He knows that he sees through the eyes of God, and he loves and obeys Him with gladness and profound humility. He is ‘alter Christus’ another Christ, and as Saint Paul said above: ‘person of Christ,’ ‘Christ be formed in you,’ ‘even Christ,’ ‘the mind of Christ” and Saint Peter adds ‘partakers of the Divine nature.’ This is Petrus Romanus, the Great Monarch of whom Saint Malachy wrote: “He feeds his flock among great tribulation.”

God’s promise is fulfilled: “I will restore to the people a chosen lip, that all may call upon the Name of the Lord, and may serve Him with one shoulder” (Zp 3:9).

Before the Times of the World and Now – and Then

Before we begin I wish to quote some verses of Scripture which may be a help and guide us as we research further, remembering that the Holy Bible which was given to us by the Catholic Church, and begins with the mysterious words: “In the beginning God created heaven and earth…” (Gn 1:1). Saint John also begins his Gospel with the words: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and God was the Word, the same was in the beginning with God” (Jn 1:1,2).

Before the Times of the World

The obvious question would be where was God before ‘the beginning’, and what happened in that era before ‘the beginning’? Saint Paul alerts us to this ‘eternity’ before ‘the beginning’ by stating: “(God) Who has delivered us and called us by His holy calling, not according to our own works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the times of the world” (2T 1:9), and again: “…the hope of Life Everlasting, which God, Who lies not, has promised before the times of the world…” (Tt 1:2). Saint Peter gives us more information when he says: “…foreknown indeed before the foundation of the world, but manifested in the last times for you” (1P 1:20). Saint Jude sheds more light about those times: “And the angels who kept not their principality but forsook their own habitation, He has reserved under darkness in everlasting chains, unto the judgment of the great day” (Jude 1:6).

A key to understanding ‘before the times of the world,’ and ‘before the foundation of the world’ is found in the verse “…from the womb before the day star I begot thee” (Ps 109:3). Since the daystar was created at the ‘beginning’ of creation, then it is self evident that there was tremendous activity in the heart of God the Father before this. It is also evident that ‘man’ was not yet made in the physical material sense, then this ‘womb’ had to have a mystical or spiritual significance that transcends our human understanding. Therefore we must seek Divine revelation, help and understanding in order to find the event and meaning of ‘the womb.’ Was it just ‘Jesus’ Who was formed in the womb in eternity? Obviously not as God said to the Prophet Jeremiah: “Before I formed you in the womb of thy mother, I knew you, and before you came forth out of the womb, I sanctified you” (Jr 1:5). So God, Who formed Jeremiah ‘before’ he entered the womb of his mother, ‘knew him,’ then how did He know him?

There remains one more question which I would like to propose and that is this: Since Jesus Who knew not sin (2Co 5:21), was formed in the womb in eternity, then that womb had to be by definition immaculate. We know that His Mother is Immaculate Mary had to be sinless and it is her womb in which we all were mystically conceived and known therefore by God before the creation of the world. But God, Who is God, knew beforehand that ‘man’ would sin, so He withheld Immaculate Mary from the progeny of Eve, thus making way for the immaculate birth, which birth was totally different from ‘births’ as we know them today. God said to Eve: “I will multiply thy sorrows, and thy conceptions, in sorrow shalt thou bring forth children” (Gn 3:16). Mary did not conceive in sorrow, because She said: “My soul doth magnify the Lord and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. Because He has regarded the humility of His handmaid, for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed, because He that is mighty has done great things in me, and Holy is His Name” (Lk 1:46-49). Jesus was not born in the pain of childbirth, but came as a ‘light’ and painless through the womb of Mary. He confirmed this: “I am come, a Light into the world, that whosoever believes in Me may not remain in darkness” (Jn 12:46).

In our immaculate state in the heart of God the Father in eternity, did He instruct us about life before He allowed us to enter the womb of our earthly biological mother, or did He just leave us to the love of our parents to be enlightened? My speculative answer is that He did enlighten us before we were placed in the womb of our mother. “God is charity, and he that abides in charity abides in God, and God in him” (1Jn 4:16). This ‘charity’ and ‘love’ is something we are born with and bring into the world. One of the first things we do when we arrive into this world is cry! Why? Because we have left, first the security and comfort of the ‘womb’ in the heart of Father God, and secondly, have left the comfort and security of our mother’s womb, and have arrived in the coldness of the world of man’s passions.

One further thought or question before I continue. Since we were all formed in the heart of God the Father in eternity, did we communicate with each other in our immaculate state? Again I give a speculative answer and say ‘yes’! My reason is that when we watch ‘innocent’ children together at play, they have love one for another and make no distinction as to class, colour, or religion. They just mutual love and joy! It is when they grow older that they learn prejudices and hatred.

And Now
After the ‘times’ before the ‘times of the World’ we come into the ‘now’ when “The Lord God formed man of the slime of the earth and breathed into his face the breath of life, and man became a living soul” (Gn 2:7). At this time He gave His angels charge over us to keep us in all our ways (Ps 90:11). It is here that we must dig a little deeper as to who and what were ‘angels.’

When God created heaven and earth, He created the heavenlies, that is the angels. In His Divine Order of His creation he assigned duties and functions to the angels, who were organized into Archangels and Angels. To the Archangel Lucifer He assigned duties over the earth. When He told His heavenlies that He was going to make ‘man’ to His own image and likeness, and the angels would assist man to come into the fulness of God. At this command, Lucifer rebelled and declared that He would not serve. This is the crucial moment in which Pride and Disobedience was openly declared. I say openly, because it is my opinion that Lucifer was already growing prideful in himself of the great responsibility given to him by God, and when he was told that he would have to serve an inferior (Hb 2:7), that is ‘man’, he revolted and disobeyed God, the Almighty Creator of Heaven, and earth.

God made man, male and female, to His own image and likeness and placed them in the Garden of Paradise with instructions not to eat the forbidden fruit (Gn 2:17). Knowing these instructions which were given to our first parents, Satan went to work on the pride of Eve, and she fell for his lies, and enticed her husband to do the same (Gn 3:6). In this instant man gave Satan his inheritance, not only of the earth, but also over himself. Now the devil was ‘master’ over man and earth. He worked on the pride of Cain and set the population of earth into two camps, the sons of God, and the sons of men. Gradually the cunning fallen angel tempted the pride, lust and disobedience of fallen man to depart from the ways of the sons of God and join the lax sinful ways of the sons of men. “And God seeing that the wickedness of men was great on the earth, and that all the thought of their heart was bent upon evil at all times, it repented Him that He had made man on the earth, and being touched inwardly with sorrow of heart, He said: I will destroy man, whom I have created, from the face of the earth, from man even to beasts, from the creeping thing even to the fowls of the air, for it repents Me that I have made them” (Gn 6:5,6). He found only Noah, his wife, his three sons and their wives faithful, and saved them in the ark, but He flooded the earth destroying all therein except for those creatures which He commanded faithful Noah to bring with him on the ark.

When the flood was over, Noah and his family arrived on a purified earth and adored God. But satan went to work to deceive man and tricked him through pride and power to disobey God. Again God called a faithful man Abraham and gave him the promise of inheritance in his seed. This promise was translated through the descendants down to the arrival of Jesus the Christ, the Son of God, Who came to redeem the ‘sons of men’ from the snares of the devil. The ‘sons of men’ did not want to be under God and inherit the gift given to Adam of the entire earth, but desired to have their own ‘kingdom’ in which they would have no king but Caesar (Jn 19:15). They killed the Son of God and declared that: “His blood be upon us and upon our children” (Mt 27:25). Their high priest Caiphas declared: “…that it is expedient for you that one man should die for the people and that the whole nation perish not” (Jn 11:50).

This ‘nation’ of Pharisees and Sadducees is the Zionists of today. They have set up a control over the entire world which is so complete in evil, transgressing every commandment given to us by Almighty God, that it is now impossible for the few remaining ‘sons of God’ to take back from Satan that which his diabolical followers, the Zionist Jews in conjunction with the Freemasons and the Communists have established. These Zionists (Pharisees and Sadducees whom I will group together with the Freemasons and Communists, for truly they are subdivisions of Zionism), have almost total control over every aspect of life on planet earth. I say ‘almost’ because a remnant is saved and cannot be overcome (Rm 9:27). The sin and evil in the world is rampant. The control of all the governments, taxation, finance, education, religion (through ‘charity tax breaks’), production and all media, is in the hands of the Zionists. Truth is suppressed because the Zionists are liars. Jesus said to the Jews of Lucifer, who is also called Satan, and Devil: “You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and he stood not in the truth, because truth is not in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own, for he is a liar, and the father thereof” (Jn 8:44).

The Zionists (Satan) has succeeded in dividing the Church given to us by Jesus Christ into two sections, the Catholic Church (not the ecumenical one), and the Protest church (with some 30,000 sects).  “We know that we are of God and the whole world is seated in wickedness” (1Jn 5:19). There is only one way and one way only that man in this twenty first century can be redeemed out of the hand of the devil (Zionists), and that is by Divine intervention from Heaven. The prayer of the faithful will bring this about (Jm 5:16).

The Defeat of Satan

The first part of the defeat of the devil (Zionism) is the great battle in heaven when the devil and his fallen angels are cast out of the heavens unto the earth (Apoc 12:7-9). I am of the opinion that event has already taken place “…because the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, knowing that he has but a short time. And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman who brought forth the man child” (Apoc 12:12,13).

The intensity of evils, provoking wars, planned poverty, starvation, famines, family destruction, unjust laws, etc., are so numerous and vile, that it is obvious the devil is cast unto the earth and is directly persecuting Christian values at every level.

The good news is that we are assured of this victory over the Zionists: “Go to now, ye rich men weep and howl in your miseries, which shall come upon you. Your riches are corrupted and your garments are moth eaten. Your gold and silver is cankered, and the rust of them shall be for a testimony against you and shall eat your flesh like fire. You have stored up to yourselves wrath against the last days. Behold the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which by fraud has been kept back by you, cries, and the cry of them has entered into the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth. You have feasted upon earth and in riotousness you have nourished your hearts, in the day of slaughter. You have condemned and put to death the Just One, and He resisted you not” (Jm 5:1-5). The true Catholic Church is the only barrier preventing the Zionists from absolute control over the earth including the cosmos. The true Catholic Church which is the Eucharistic Church is the fulfillment of Saint Paul’s prayer for the new creation: ‘May we in all things grow up in Him, Who is the Head (Ep 4:15), walking in newness of life, in the likeness of His resurrection (Rm 6:4,5), to perfect man, unto the measure of the age of the fulness of Christ (Ep 4:13).

We said earlier that Satan has succeeded in dividing the Church given to us by Jesus Christ into two sections, the Catholic Church (not the ecumenical one), and the Protest church. There are numerous souls who have been ‘born into’ a church of error and have continued in that church of error until this present day. Our God is a merciful God and gives ear to all people and hears their cry for help, and gives them every opportunity to be saved: “Hear, O Lord, and have mercy, for Thou art a merciful God, and have pity on us for we have sinned before Thee” (Baruch 3:2). The Ark of the Covenant which was taken from the Temple by Jeremiah and hidden in Mount Nebo by the Prophet Jeremiah will be recovered, and shown to the world for those who truly want salvation. Jeremiah said: “The place shall be unknown, till God gather together the congregation of the people, and receive them to mercy” (2M 2:7). The recovery of the Ark will be a miracle of our God, and it will continue as a visible sign of the very power of our God, Who will bring this about.

It will be the sounding of the seventh trumpet, and all those on earth will have the opportunity to come into the truth of God’s Church. This will be the heralding of the death of Zionism. “The expectation of the creature waits for the revelation of the sons of God. “For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him that made it subject, in hope. Because the creature also itself shall be delivered from the servitude of corruption, into the liberty of the glory of the children of God. For we know that every creature groans and travails in pain, even till now. And not only it, but ourselves also, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption of the sons of God, the redemption of our body” (Rm 8:19-23).

The command is given: “Hurt not the earth nor the sea nor the trees, till we sign the servants of our God in their foreheads. And I heard the number of them that were signed. An hundred forty-four thousand were signed, of every tribe of the children of Israel” (Apoc 7:3,4).

“And I beheld and lo, a Lamb stood upon mount Sion, and with Him an hundred forty-four thousand, having His Name and the name of His Father written on their foreheads. And they sung as it were a new canticle, before the throne and before the four living creatures and the ancients: and no man could say the canticle, but those hundred forty-four thousand who were purchased from the earth. These are they who were not defiled with women: for they are virgins. These follow the Lamb whithersoever he goes. These were purchased from among men, the firstfruits to God and to the Lamb” (Apoc 14:1-4).

 

The second part of the defeat of the devil (Zionism) is the armies that are in heaven. “I saw heaven opened and behold a white horse. And he that sat upon him was called faithful and true, and with justice does he judge and fight. And his eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many diadems. And he had a name written, which no man knows but himself. And he was clothed with a garment sprinkled with blood. And his name is called: THE WORD OF GOD. And the armies that are in heaven followed him on white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth proceeds a sharp two-edged sword, that with it he may strike the nations. And he shall rule them with a rod of iron, and he treads the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of God the Almighty. And he has on his garment and on his thigh written: King of kings and Lord of lords” (Apoc 19:11-16).

Now I said earlier that the prayer of the just avails much. This prayer brings down from Heaven those armies that are there waiting now for the battle before them. Those armies that are in Heaven are composed of the angels and the saints who have died and gone before us, but also of a number of those saints now living on earth who shall be called up to Heaven, as was St. Paul (2Co 12:2), and instructed in the Kingdom of God authority and power and living. They will be very few in number. I suspect that they will be members of the hierarchy, cardinals and bishops, the extremely few who are faithful to our Eucharistic Christ Jesus, King of All Nations, King of the Universe. There will also be priests and deacons, not many. I believe that the greatest number of those ‘called up’ will be secular. I further suspect that the total number overall shall be the 144,000 who shall reclaim the world from the evil doers: “The saints shall rejoice in glory, they shall be joyful in their beds. The high praises of God shall be in their mouth, and two-edged swords in their hands, to execute vengeance upon the nations, chastisements among the people, to bind their kings with fetters, and their nobles with manacles of iron. To execute upon them the judgment that is written, this glory is to all His saints. Alleluia” (Ps 149:5-9).

As the first heavens and the first earth were destroyed by water, so too shall this second earth be destroyed by fire: “For this they are wilfully ignorant of: that the heavens were before, and the earth out of water and through water, consisting by the word of God, whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished. But the heavens and the earth which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of the ungodly men…But the day of the Lord shall come as a thief, in which the heavens shall pass away with great violence and the elements shall be melted with heat and the earth and the works which are in it shall be burnt up…Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of the Lord, by which the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with the burning heat?…You therefore, brethren, knowing these things before, take heed, lest being led aside by the error of the unwise, you fall from your own steadfastness. Amen” (2P 3:5-7,10,12,17).

Those faithful to Jesus Christ and ALL His teachings will be protected by Him in this Great Tribulation which is soon to be upon us. He will put His mighty hands over each and every faithful member and protect them in the coming day of the Lord.

After the fire and the destruction of the ungodly, the faithful will bury the dead for seven months to cleanse the land (Ez 39:12).

And Then
After this comes the ‘Last Judgement’ and the faithful will hear those glorious words: “Come, ye blessed of My Father, possess you the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world” (Mt 25:34). What exceeding joy and happiness!

Then comes the fulfillment of that great promise: “The wolf shall dwell with the lamb: and the leopard shall lie down with the kid: the calf and the lion, and the sheep shall abide together, and a little child shall lead them. The calf and the bear shall feed: their young ones shall rest together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp: and the weaned child shall thrust his hand into the den of the basilisk. They shall not hurt, nor shall they kill in all my holy mountain, for the earth is filled with the knowledge of the Lord, as the covering waters of the sea” (Is 11:6-9).

So be it. It be so!

Sons of men (evil man) always oppose the sons of God. – Part 1

The history of the pride, greed, disobedience by the rulers of the Jews is evident, and their
opposition to God and His anointed continued until the arrival of Jesus, Who is the Messiah, the Christ.

The ‘rulers’ of the Temple, ‘sons of men,’ were so jealous of Jesus Christ, that like the fratricide of Cain against Abel, the rulers of the Jews (sons of men as opposed to the sons of God – (Gn 6:2) murdered Jesus, by hanging Him on the Cross. It was in this very act that the ‘Jews’ lost their inheritance of the ‘chosen people,’ they preferred a murderer to the Messiah! The rulers got what they did not reckon on: “Trust in Him, all ye congregation of people: pour out your hearts before Him. God is our helper for ever. But vain are the sons of men, the sons of men are liars in the balances: that by vanity they may together deceive. Trust not in iniquity, and cover not robberies: if riches abound, set not your heart upon them. God has spoken once, these two things have I heard, that power belongs to God, and mercy to Thee, O Lord; for Thou wilt render to every man according to his works” (Ps 61:913).

Scripture bears witness to this claim that it was the rulers, the ‘sons of men’ ‘sons of the devil’ who murdered Jesus: “Peter seeing, made answer to the people: Ye men of Israel, why wonder you at this? Or why look you upon us, as if by our strength or power we had made this man to walk? The God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified His Son Jesus, Whom you indeed delivered up and denied before the face of Pilate, when he judged He should be released. But you denied the Holy One and the Just and desired a murderer to be granted unto you, but the Author of Life you killed, Whom God has raised from the dead of which we are witnesses…And now, brethren, I know that you did it through ignorance as did also your rulers” (Ac 3:12-15). Peter emphasizes ‘you did it through ignorance as did also your rulers.’

Paul rising up and with his hand bespeaking silence, said: Ye men of Israel and you that fear God, give ear…Men, brethren, children of the stock of Abraham, and whosoever among you fear God, to you the word of this salvation is sent. For they that inhabited Jerusalem and the rulers thereof, not knowing Him, nor the voices of the prophets which are read every Sabbath, judging Him, have fulfilled them, and finding no cause of death in Him, they desired of Pilate that they might kill Him. And when they had fulfilled all things that were written of him, taking him down from the tree, they laid him in a sepulchre” (Ac 13:16,26-29). Paul emphasizes ‘and the rulers thereof.’

“The (Jews) stirred up the people and the ancients and the scribes. And running together, they took (Stephen) and brought him to the council…And all that sat in the council, looking on him…Then the high priest said: Are these things so? (Stephen answered): “You stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, you always resist the Holy Ghost. As your fathers did, so do you also…Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? And they have slain them who foretold of the coming of the Just One of whom you have been now the betrayers and murderers. Who have received the law by the disposition of angels and have not kept. Now hearing these things, they were cut to the heart and they gnashed with their teeth at him. And they, crying out with a loud voice, stopped their ears and with one accord ran violently upon him. And casting him forth without the city, they stoned him” (Ac 6:12; 7:1,51-57). Stephen emphasizes ‘ancients and the scribes… you have been now the betrayers and murderers.’

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen. – Part 3

Apart from the ‘sons of men’ (sons of the devil), the ‘sons of God’ stayed faithful to God and there are 12 generations form Adam to Noah and the Flood. The number 12 signifies order, or government. But a number of the ‘sons of God’ were bewitched by the beauty of the ‘sons of men’ and left the worship of God to join in the enticements of the sons of the devil: “And God seeing that the wickedness of men was great on the earth, and that all the thought of their heart was bent upon evil at all times, it repented Him that He had made man on the earth. And being touched inwardly with sorrow of heart He said: I will destroy man, whom I have created, from the face of the earth, from man even to beasts, from the creeping thing even to the fowls of the air, for it repents Me that I have made them” (Gn 6:5). This brought on the Flood in which only the ‘sons of God’ survived and all the ‘sons of the devil’ were destroyed.

When Noah and his sons and wives came out of the Ark, the earth was pristine and clean with no sin. However sin entered into the second son whose name was Ham. Noah cursed his seed, and it from this offspring came Nimrod and those who built the tower of Babel and later Babylon. Consistently in the descendants of Noah, Abraham, Moses, Saul, David, Solomon and the following leaders rebellion against God Almighty was exercised.

The sons of Solomon divided Israel into 2 kingdoms, the north kingdom with 10 tribes was called ‘Israel’ and the south with 2 tribes was called ‘Judah.’ In the history of the divided kingdoms there were 19 kings in the northern kingdom of Israel, and scripture records that not one of them did that was pleasing to the Lord. In the southern kingdom there were 20 kings and only 8 of them did that which was pleasing to the Lord. The rebellion against God the Almighty is recorded in the Book of Machabees, and for some unearthly reason, the success of Judas Machabeus against the enemies of Israel is astonishing when one considers that with a small army he put to flight the nations fighting against him, and then he goes and makes a concord with the Roman Empire for protection! That lack of trust in the Saviour of Israel ended in the Roman conquest and enslavement of Israel, the destruction of the Temple, and the Jewish inability to perform the rites and sacrifices which God commanded. It is written: “But if you and your children, revolting, shall turn away from following Me, and will not keep My commandments, and My ceremonies, which I have set before you, but will go and worship strange gods, and adore them, I will take away Israel from the face of the land which I have given them, and the Temple which I have sanctified to My Name, I will cast out of My sight, and Israel shall be a proverb, and a byword among all people” (3K9:6,7). The Roman Empire was the false gods of the Jews.
