Title: THE VIRGIN MARY'S SACRED HEARTS RECEIVE EQUAL WORSHIP TO JESUS CHRIST
Stand by for insights so startling you will never look at the news the same way again.
YOU ARE NOW ON
THE CUTTING EDGE
The "Immaculate Heart Of Mary" is a Catholic doctrine that stresses the "perfections which God gave to Mary, the Blessed Virgin, and her holiness which is unique among men ."("Catholic Peoples Dictionary", Vol. 2, 511) Since Roman Catholicism teaches that Mary was conceived without sin, and celebrates this doctrine by keeping the "Feast of the Immaculate Conception", it was only a matter of time before Pope Pius XII (Hitlers Pope) declared Marys heart was also "immaculate". He instituted the "Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary" to be celebrated every year on August 22nd which is exactly one week after the celebration of the "Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus." In his 1956 encyclical "Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus", Pius XII defines Mary's role in the redemption of mankind:
"By the will of God, the most Blessed Virgin Mary was INSEPARABLY JOINED WITH CHRIST IN ACCOMPLISHING THE WORK OF MANS REDEMPTION so that our salvation flows from the love of Jesus Christ and His sufferings, intimately UNITED with the love and sorrows of His Mother."
Pius says that it was "the will of God" that Jesus should NOT accomplish our salvation BY HIMSELF, but that our salvation comes from Jesus AND Mary. If that is true, it is only right and reasonable that we offer her our faith, worship and obedience, because without her, according to Pius, there is no salvation. If Jesus and Mary are "inseparably joined", it is also reasonable to conclude that when we worship Jesus, we automatically worship Mary.
Hebrews chapter 1 verse 3 says:
"Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had BY HIMSELF purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high."
"Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." Acts 4:12
We have a contradiction here. Either Pope Pius XII is right, and Mary and Jesus BOTH purged our sins, or God is right, and there is only ONE name by which we are saved. It comes down to a choice of whether you believe man or God.
Be assured, the Pope did not speak on his own. He had the approval of his predecessors when they sanctioned the apparitions of Fatima, leaving no doubt that the Roman Catholic hierarchy believed these messages given by the apparitions were from God. It was at Fatima in 1917 that "Mary" appeared to three children revealing herself as the "Immaculate Heart". When the children were given a vision of hell, "Mary" told them:
"You have seen Hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them , God wishes to establish in the world the devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If people do what I tell you, many souls will be saved and there will be peace" ("Call of the Ages", Thomas W. Petrisko, p. 257)
I have to wonder, at what point did Rome actually think the true Mary of the Bible would say such a thing? Did they really believe that God had changed His mind and decided that Jesus dying on the cross was not sufficient, so He instituted devotion to the "Immaculate Heart of Mary"? Did they think that God forgot to tell us all about this doctrine in the Bible? This is pure, absolute nonsense!
Acts 15:18 says, "Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world."
This is crucial doctrine. How did it happen that God didnt mention any of it? Did they assume that God did not know how popular "His Mother" would become? A devil appears and says that God has changed His mind, and now wants to save mankind by devotion to Mary, and the Roman Catholic teaching authority had no idea that the devil was lying! Why would anyone trust their souls to men who cannot discern such a simple matter?
At this point, we wish to reiterate that the Catholic apparitions are real, very real. They are demons masquerading as "Mary" and other saints. The Bible has warned us strongly that Satan and his demons are fully capable of carrying out this type of spiritual deception. :Listen:
"... no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness..." [2 Cor 11:14-15]
Lucia, one of the three children of Fatima, had a vision of "Jesus" in a convent in Spain in 1929. This "Jesus" also elevated Mary:
"I want my entire Church to know that it is through the Immaculate Heart of My Mother that this favor is obtained, so that devotion to her Immaculate Heart may be placed ALONGSIDE DEVOTION TO MY SACRED HEART" (Ibid., p. 31).
Jesus said to Satan:
"Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve." [Matt. 4:10]
Again, youd think that the Roman Catholic hierarchy would have perceived that devotion to a creature "alongside" devotion to God would be idolatry. However, they cannot discern a lie when they hear it! They have "...changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen." (Romans 1:25)
Jesus is God. He doesnt forget or make mistakes. Jesus did not forget to mention the role of Mary in our salvation, because she had no role in our salvation. You cannot add to His work or take from His work. Ecclesiastes 3:14 says:
"I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him."
This subject should not be taken lightly by Christians, because the Catholics are claiming some serious doctrines, which cannot be found in Scripture. We are not talking about a few traditions that are copied from the pagans. We are talking DOCTRINE! We are talking about elevating devotion to Mary "alongside devotion" to Jesus! This is not Christianity! This is satanic! It is a cult!
Pope John Paul II believes, "By dedicating ourselves the Heart of Mary, we discover a SURE WAY TO THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS" (Ibid., p. 289).
Rome has continued to promote the worship of the "Immaculate Heart of Mary" despite the lack of scriptural support. All Rome has to lean on is her apparitions of "Mary" and "Jesus". The words of devils have become her final authority on the matter. Lets take a look at the doctrinal messages these devils have convinced Rome to wholly accept!
In 1830, the "Virgin Mary" appeared to "St." Catherine Laboure at Rue du Bac, Paris. She commanded that a "Miraculous Medal" be engraved with her image crushing the serpents head on the front, and the two hearts on the back. According to "St." Catherine, an inner voice said, "These Two Hearts are formed together" (Call of the Ages, 249). It was after Paris that "Jesus" and "Mary" apparitions increased, each time giving even more glory to the "Immaculate Heart of Mary".
One Catholic author, John Haffert, talks about a vision that "St." John Eudes had when "Jesus" appeared to him and said:
"I have given you this admirable heart of My dearest Mother, which is but One with Mine ." ("Call of the Ages", p. 249)
On March 31, 1993, "Jesus" appeared to a young Catholic woman from Melbourne, Australia, Josefina-Maria, with a message for mankind:
"This is the age of the Two Hearts All evil will be abolished by My Sacred Heart through My Mothers Immaculate Heart. Do not be afraid; for those who come to Our Hearts, a great reward awaits them. How I long for the world to be enfolded in Our Hearts. Our Hearts will triumph. Evil will no longer reign in the hearts of men. Man will love God and everyone will dwell in unity. This is how it will be my loved ones" ("Call of the Ages", Petrisko, p. 287).
In September 1, 1993, "Mary" appeared to Josefina-Maria to confirm the message "Jesus" gave:
"This century many of you will see the reign of Our Two Hearts established on the earth. I am preparing you through the prayer groups and through the prophets who have been commissioned by the Father Almighty. Do not be afraid my children to believe in the Fathers ultimate plan of salvation. Many graces have poured out of my Immaculate Heart through the ages, and I continue to pour graces upon my children. I have come so that the Fathers plan of redemption will be fulfilled. I am the Mediatrix of All Graces, even for those who do not recognize me as their Mother and the Mother of God. Be not afraid to take part in the Fathers plan of salvation; to join in helping to co-redeem the world with me and my Son" (ibid., 288).
The "Virgin" as appeared often to "Fr." Gobbi of Alberta, Canada. On May 22, 1988, "Mary" told "Fr." Gobbi, "The Holy Spirit will come, by means of the Triumph of my Immaculate Heart" (ibid., 180). And again on Sept.29, 1990, "Mary" said:
"This is the hour of the Angelic Powers. It is the Angelic Powers who are guiding all my children in the decisive battle for the final defeat of Satan and the coming of the glorious reign of Christ, in the Triumph of my Immaculate Heart in the world" (Ibid., p. 283).
Another visionary in the Midwestern USA claims Jesus appeared to her and said:
"The Sacred and Immaculate Hearts are to be the constant source of your inspiration and the focus of your prayer. This is the Age of the Two Hearts and the way in which We wish to be venerated and honored. The depth of this devotion escapes many who are looking to relate to their God in what they blindly perceive to some modern form, which is none other than a lessening of the degree of holiness to which men are to aspire. They seek to relate in only human terms when My command to them is to be perfect even as My Heavenly Father is perfect. This requires a form of supernatural love which is made available to you in abundance through the devotion to the Two Hearts. It is through this means that you are able to love in a similar fashion in which My Mother and I love and glorify the Father. Your humanity is exalted by this means, which then enables you to more divine than human in your love. Love, the queen of all virtues, and inflamed love, fired by My Holy Spirit, poured out upon you through these powerful devotions to the Two Hearts. Beg the Holy Spirit to come into your hearts through this means and you will experience a quickening in the degree of sanctity to which you are attaining. My Mothers Heart is your heavenly garden to perfumed spices, the flower which adorns the Most Holy Trinity with love so abundant ." (Ibid., p. 284)
At Fatima, "Mary" taught the children to pray this prayer whenever they made sacrifice:
" O my Jesus, I offer this for the love of Thee, for the conversion of poor sinners, and in reparation for all the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary" (Ibid., p. 257).
There is no need to make reparations to Mary. She did not create us, nor did she write the commandments that condemned us. King David teaches us otherwise in the Psalms:
"For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest." Psalms 51:3-4
This spirit of "Mary" from Fatima wants the world to establish devotion to her, telling everyone it is Gods will that they do this. But Gods will is that we worship Him and Him alone! Had Rome heeded Gods word and warning, she would not have led her people into this blasphemy and idolatry. Nevertheless, Rome sanctioned the lies, giving the spirit of these lies a home to continue deceiving the ignorant and superstitious. On one occasion, in 1925, Lucia (one of the visionaries of Fatima) was visited by the "Virgin Mary" with the "baby Jesus" floating on a cloud beside her. The "baby Jesus" spoke first saying:
"Have compassion on the Heart of your most holy Mother, covered with thorns, with which ungrateful men pierce it at every moment, and THERE IS NO ONE TO MAKE AN ACT OF REPARATION TO REMOVE THEM" (Ibid., p. 258).
Jesus died for the sins of the world. Why then is there no one to make an act of reparation? Why is this "Jesus" denying his own sacrifice as sufficient? Is it because it could not possibly be the true Jesus? The answer is simple. If the Catholic people would read the scriptures, they would know that Jesus is not a baby anymore. They would know that He grew up, died on the cross, rose from the dead and He now sits on His throne till His enemies be put at His feet! He is not floating around as a baby asking men to make reparation for the sins they commit against his mother! Nonetheless, the Roman Catholic hierarchy and her theologians continue to exalt the spirits of Fatima and teach others to do the same.
Now, when "baby Jesus" (devil) was done asking men to make reparation for hurting his mother, then "Mary" (another devil) began speaking:
"Look, my daughter, at my Heart, surrounded with thorns with which ungrateful men pierce it at every moment by their blasphemies and ingratitude. You at least try to console me and say that I promise to assist at the hour of death, with the graces necessary for salvation, all those who, on the first Saturday of five consecutive months, shall confess, receive Holy Communion, recite five decades of the Rosary, and keep me company for fifteen minutes while mediating on the mysteries of the Rosary, with the intention of MAKING REPARATION TO ME" (Ibid., p. 258).
Just before Jacinta (one of the three children of Fatima) died in 1920, she wanted people to know:
"Tell everybody that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Tell them to ask graces from her, and that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Ask them to plead for peace from the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the Lord has confided the peace of the world to her" (Ibid., p. 257-8).
In 1926, "Jesus" appeared to Lucia and asked, "What is being done to promote the devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in the world?" (Ibid., p. 259)
In January 9, 1993, "Mary" appeared to Estela Ruiz saying:
"There are many lost souls who need and want to return, yet, they do not know how. I ask all these souls to consecrate your hearts to my Immaculate Heart, that I may lead you and guide you to His love. Allow your heart to blend with mine that I may show you the beauty of Gods love in your life."
In 1986, "Jesus" told "Sister" Natalie:
"I, Gods Mercy, and My Immaculate Mother, the praying omnipotence, held back the hand of My Father, which was ready to strike a blow on the world, sunken in sin. My Father will have mercy on the world through the Immaculate Heart of My Mother. My children, you too will see the glorious arrival of My Immaculate Mother" (Ibid., 29).
Julia Kim (who received the stigmata in 1987), from Korea, has received sixty-seven messages from "Mary" and "Jesus". Her messages have come with many lying signs and wonders, such as "healings, tears of blood, fragrant odors, miracles of the sun, seven Eucharistic miracles [bleeding hosts], visions of Mary and Jesus, and finally, miraculous oil that exuded from the statue of Mary" (Ibid., 26). These signs are enough to convince the average Catholic that the apparitions are legitimate. On one occasion, "Mary" told Julia:
"...Now I will ask the Lord to give you even a miraculous spring here so that I can wash your soul and body. So this place will become a kingdom of love and a place of salvation under the combination of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and my Immaculate Heart, and equivalent of which will be hard to find anywhere else I the world. Soon there will be continuous rays of light coming from the Sacred Heart of Jesus and My Immaculate Heart here. People will smell the fragrance of roses and drink the water of eternal life from the Miraculous spring. I will let all stay in my love .."
On May 16, 1991, "Jesus" told Julia:
"...put into practice the words of My Mother who is appearing and imploring with tears at many places in the world in this urgent time. Tell everyone that accepting My Mothers words is the same as accepting Me and that holding her hands and following her is the shortcut to Me. The time of My Mother Marys victory is approaching. Make haste in repenting and get on board Marys Ark of Salvation. My Mother came into this world as the Heavenly Prophetess and My Helper who will lead you to My brilliant and glorious revelations. Follow her words. I will always be with you" (Ibid., 27).
With such miraculous signs that follow these "messages from Jesus and Mary", it isn't hard to convince a Catholic that it must be from God. Many of them do not realize that Satan comes with lying signs and wonders.
"Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie." (2 Thessalonians 2:9-11)
They wont take into consideration that Satan appears as an angel of light. (2 Cor.11:14) The problem is that most Catholics simply do not know the scriptures, and the ones they do know are twisted to say often the opposite of what they really mean. They should have listened to what Peter taught, since they pretend to follow his teachings! It was Peter who said:
"For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty. For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount. We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts." 2 Peter 1:16-19
Peter claims that we have a "more sure word of prophecy" than the voice of God from heaven. We have the Word of God, which we do well to take heed to. Knowing then that Peter exalted the word of God above even the voice of God from heaven, you would think anyone claiming Peter as their head would follow his example. Yet, Rome would rather listen to the "voice of Mary" from heaven and exalt her words while diminishing the "more sure word of prophecy" found in the word of God!
The prophets of God always exalted the word of God. Isaiah said:
To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them. (Isa. 8:20)
And again: Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail . (Isa. 34:16)
Thus saith the Lord:
Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you. (Deut. 4:2)
In the wisdom of Solomon, we read:
Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar. (Prov. 30:5-6)
In a psalm of King David, we read, ...for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name. (Psa.138:2)
The apostle John warns:
For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book." (Rev.22:18-19)
Paul said that the gospel he preached was "promised afore time by his prophets in the Holy Scriptures" (Rom. 1:3) and that if any man came preaching any other gospel than the one promised afore by Gods prophets in the Holy Scriptures, they should be "accursed" (Gal. 1:8)
Roman Catholicism does teach another gospel, a gospel that she has received from devils. Rome has put the words of devils above the word of God. How then can Christian men and women still claim that Catholicism is "Christian"?
Next time a Catholic apologists denies Catholics worship Mary, ask them if Mary had part in their salvation. Ask them if the "Immaculate Heart of Mary" is "INSEPARABLY JOINED" to the "Sacred Heart of Jesus". Ask them if the sufferings of Christ were "united" to the sufferings of Mary to accomplish our salvation. Make them answer for their faith in the teaching magesteriums doctrines. Dont let them lie and tell you that "veneration" and not worship is given to Mary. A careful examination of the word "veneration" reveals a startling fact. Several dictionaries, including the Catholic Dictionary, define veneration as an act of WORSHIP. Next time a Catholic apologist tells you that Rome is the true church which contains the true doctrines from God, quote Proverbs 7:27:
"Her house is the way to hell,
going down to the chambers of death."
Truly, the End of the Age is upon us.
