The Last Great Inquisition
Ever heard of the Inquisition, from 1200 A.D. to 1800 A.D. . . ? It's never mentioned any longer.
We hear a lot about the Jewish Holocaust when 6 million Jews perished under Hitler. But most people don't know that Hitler was a Roman Catholic and an instrument of the Holy Office. Hitler was never excommunicated for his crimes against humanity and causing the deaths of millions of people; whereas Martin Luther was excommunicated for translating the Bible into German!!
In 1933 the Vatican signed a Concordat with Germany making Roman Catholicism the only recognized religion in that country. Hitler was financed by Wall St. and the corrupt U.S. Bank.
Signing the Concordat is Cardinal Pacelli (later to become Pope Pius XII). By 1933, he was the Vatican Secretary of State. Seated second from his left is Franz von Papen who was the Papal Nuncio to Germany. Standing at the far right can be seen the little known Vatican prelate, Montini, later to become Pope Paul VI.
Eugenio Pacelli (Pope Pius XII from 1939 to 1958) was a brilliant diplomat, a cunning politician and a religious crusader. He was appointed Papal Nuncio to Germany in 1920 — the first since the Reformation!! He, more than anybody else outside Germany, helped Hitler to power. He was one of the paramount personalities of the 20th century.
He transformed the Vatican into a global political instrument. His pet obsession was Communism, and he became the main instigator of the Cold War.
Archbishop Cesare Orsenigo, papal nuncio to Germany, talks with Hitler at a formal reception in Berlin in Jan. 1936. Martin Luther would never have allowed this!!

Hitler's mistress Ava Braun. Like LaPopessa in Rome, very few people knew of their relationship.
Eva Braun as a young girl at Simbach Convent. Martin Luther emptied the convents in Germany. He called them "cesspools of iniquity." The Jesuits filled them up again.

Prior to 1960, libraries in America were filled with books on the Inquisition. Today however, very few can be found. . . . Why has the Inquisition been covered up? Because the total number of victims of this atrocity reached about 68 million people.
They were Bible-believing Christians, Jews and even Roman Catholics like Joan of Arc, Savonarola, Giordano Bruno and Galileo etc., who were destroyed by the Inquisition carried out by the "Holy Office." The victims were always found guilty. They never knew who accused them. They never had lawyers, and no one would dare lift a finger to help...
On August 28, 1558, Walter Mill (an 82 year old Scotsman and parish priest of Lunan near Montrose), was burned alive with several others for embracing the Reformed Faith!!
The Inquisition was forcibly suppressed by Napoleon when he entered Madrid in 1808.
When the Spanish Parliament in 1831 declared it incompatible with the Constitution, the Vatican protested. King Ferdinand VII restored it again in 1814. The Inquisition was finally suppressed by the Liberals in July, 1833. However, the Holy Office has never ceased to function. It is still alive and well and disguised under the specious name (sacred congregation for the doctrine of the faith) in the Vatican today!
Its current head is a German named Ratzinger and Time magazine had this to say about him:
Time, December 6, 1993
Throughout history, whenever the time came for God to do a great work, the devil has always put forth his utmost power to stop the work of God. Satan, acting through Pharaoh, king of Egypt, was not going to let the children of Israel go to the promised land without putting up a tremendous struggle.
Moses had to plague his kingdom with 10 plagues, and kill all the firstborn of Egypt, before Pharaoh would finally relent.
Even then Pharaoh saw another opportunity at the Red Sea to annihilate the people of God:
Before the coming of the Messiah, Satan had all his people in key positions, especially the religious leaders.
He directed king Herod to murder all the babies in Bethlehem in hopes of killing the promised Redeemer. The land of Israel was filled with legions of devils and unclean spirits to oppose the work of the Messiah. Jesus began His preaching ministry in the town where He grew up. The local people's reaction to His first sermon - they tried to kill Him! And that was the reception He got from people He knew all His life!
The spread of Christianity in the Roman Empire was met with terrible opposition by the pagans. Innumerable were the martyrs that died for the Faith during the first 300 years. The lives of Christians during that time consisted of persecution above ground and prayer underground.
Before the Emperor Constantine ended the persecutions, the pagans made one last desperate attempt to abolish the Christian name. This persecution, under the Emperor Diocletian, began on the 23rd of February (303 A.D.), that being the day the Roman Terminalia was celebrated, and the cruel pagans boasted that they would finally put a termination to Christianity. . . . Fire, racks, swords, wild beasts, crosses, poison and famine were made use of to kill the Christians. Invention was exhausted to devise tortures against those who would not deny Christ and acknowledge Caesar as "lord" and burn incense to his image.
This persecution lasted 10 years and was ended by the victory of Constantine, and his Edict of Milan (313 A.D.), granting freedom of worship to the believers. It was a great victory of Christ over the Dragon and the pagan Roman superstition.
The Emperor Constantine, says the Church historian Eusebius,
From the Bible and history we see that Satan always stirs up all his wrath just before the hour of deliverance. It will be no different this time. The Bible plainly teaches that will be great tribulation for the true Church just before the Second Coming of Christ.
Satan hates all those who believe in the Reformation credo: salvation by faith in Christ alone, and he will do his utmost to massacre them. It will be another St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre - on a worldwide scale. . . . This is symbolized in Scripture by the Battle of Armageddon - Satan loosed out of his prison - the great tribulation - the Dragon making war with the saints etc.
The last Pope will be a ferocious persecutor of true Protestant Christians. As in the past, the Inquisition under the Jesuits will be the instrument that Satan will use to try and bring the entire world under the Papacy.
Like the plague of frogs on Egypt, Roman Catholicism will be everywhere:
Jesus said: "I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last" (Rev. 1:11). The last quarter of Christian history will end like the first quarter of Jewish history . . . with Pharaoh in hot pursuit of the spiritual children of Israel. . . . This modern Pharaoh will try and exterminate all who refuse to acknowledge him as the Vicar of Christ.
However, the Lord Jesus Christ - the Prophet like unto Moses - will overthrow him in a victory greater than at the Red Sea:
St. Paul tell us that God will trouble the persecutors of His Church when He comes again:
Death for the true believer is described as rest until that great Resurrection Morning comes. . . . Death for the unbeliever is not the end of existence, or Purgatory, but everlasting torment in the lake of fire and brimstone.
Whom will you choose - Christ or the Pope? - one is everlasting joy in Heaven, the other is everlasting pain in Hell.
The Song of Moses
