Subtitle: Recalling that this Pope was the only one in history to publicly call for a "New World Order", let us examine the highpoints of his Ecumenical leadership, which has dramatically increased the likelihood of the soon appearance of the real False Prophet Pope.

Further, isn't it appropriate that this Sun God was born on a Sun eclipse and will be buried during a relatively rare total "Annular Total Eclipse in the 20th degree Aries", a solar event in which only the fiery edges of the Sun are visible?

On Saturday, April 2, 2005, the Vatican announced the death of Pope John Paul II. The 84-year-old Pontiff had been suffering for years with a variety of ailments which crippled him and took much of the vitality out of his ministry. Immediately, the Mass Media zeroed in on this Pope, generating a whopping 35,000 news stories on the very next day!

Since people tend to forget unpleasant aspects of a person's life and remember only the good, we should not be surprised at the incredible outflowing of emotion and nostalgia from the masses of Catholic faithful, aided greatly by a Mass Media all too willing to immortalize Pope John Paul II, making him much larger than life. As the last days slipped by, many headlines appeared comparing this pope to God; headlines which said, "The light is dying". Thank God I worship a God in Jesus Christ Who will never die! However, remember this headline extolling "the light", for this will be of greater importance later in this article.

This Pope is being greatly immortalized, even as his lifeless body lies in state. The peoples of the world will now see all the Roman Catholic pomp and all the pageantry which appeals to the emotion and to the eye as TV news cameras capture the full glory of the spectacle undergirding his funeral and the process by which the Cardinals select the new pope.

Many undiscerning people will be very impressed by all the pomp and pageantry they are going to witness, a most important development since the future False Prophet will be the Roman Catholic Pontiff! Many such people will be impressed by the spectacle of these proceedings.

However, the discerning will view the same proceedings and marvel at the display of blatant paganism in these proceedings! In this article, we shall examine some of the many evidences of paganism seen throughout John Paul's ministry, more evidences in his death, and even more in the aftermath which is breaking upon us now.


Perhaps the most important fact about John Paul II is that he is the only Pope in history to actually call for a "New World Order" -- known in the esoteric realm as "the kingdom of the Christ" -- but known in the Bible as Antichrist. Let us now examine that momentous occasion in which this pope called for a "New World Order".

NEWS BRIEF: "Pope calls for a new world order", CNN News, Thursday, January 1, 2004

"VATICAN CITY (AP) -- Pope John Paul II rang in the New Year on Thursday with a renewed call for peace in the Middle East and Africa and the creation of a new world order based on respect for the dignity of man and equality among nations ... he stressed that to bring about peace, there needs to be a new respect for international law and the creation of a 'new international order' based on the goals of the United Nations."

No other Pope in history ever has called for a "New World Order", and this pope waited until he had sat on the Throne of Peter over 25 years! Why would Pope John Paul II wait for 25 long years before announcing his affinity for the New World Order? Simply, the time has just now arrived in both world history and in the Plan of the Illuminati for him to announce the coming kingdom of the Masonic, New Age Christ, Biblically known as Antichrist. World events are spiraling toward a terrible climactic war, which will be the Final Birth Pangs (Matthew 24:6-8) which will produce the "Man of Lawlessness".

Pope John Paul II waited for this opportune moment to announce the New World Order as his objective because the world stands at the cusp of the appearance of the First Beast (Revelation 13:1-10). Remember, the Illuminati decided in 1991 that the Roman Catholic Pope -- whomever he will be at the time -- will be the top religious leader of the New World Order Religion (NEWS1052), a designation which places the Pope as the False Religious Prophet (Revelation 13:11-18) -- a Second Beast who will perform the same occult "signs and wonders" as the First Beast, who will compel all men to worship a talking image of Antichrist in the Holy of Holies, and who will force all people to take the Mark of the Beast, without which no man shall buy or sell!

The Second Beast (False Prophet) is a most important religious figure in world history, pretending to be a Christian (Revelation 13:11a), and serving the needs of the First Beast -- Antichrist. Since the False Prophet will be quite active on behalf of Antichrist, he would need to be a strong, vital, and vigorous pope, something John Paul II just could not be.

Thus, it seemed logical that John Paul II must pass away, giving way to a new, younger pope, who can carry out the prophetic duties required of the False Prophet.



As we reported in NEWS1608, the Pope always wears white, while his visitors wear black, a symbolism dating back nearly 4,000 years to the religion of Zoroastrianism, founded by Zarathustra, who is recognized by Illuminists as a forerunner, a type of Antichrist. However, Zarathustra was also Lucifer, the Sun-God. Keep this fact in mind, for we shall return to it shortly.

If you have not yet read NEWS1608, we encourage you to do so now.

However, for our purposes in this article, we shall quote selected portions of this old one.

In Black Magick Witchcraft, the color white is considered the preeminent color. Since the color, white, is comprised of all colors, and black is a lack of color, white is considered most powerful; black must give way to white. Further, white is considered to be inherently based in the spiritual, since white is the color worn by Zarathustra, the founder of the pagan religion of Zoroaster, and quite possibly, the precursor to Antichrist. When any Illuminist leader anywhere in the world, visits the Pope, he or she wears almost always wears black, while the Pope wears white. This symbolism dates back to Zarathustra and Zoroastrianism.

Its use today by the Roman Catholic Pontiff is pure Illuminism! And, secular Illuminist leaders are today paying obeisance to this symbolism. When they wear black in the presence of the Pope dressed in white, they are acknowledging that he is the superior being!


In late 1996, I received an email from a person who identified himself as a Black Magick Satanist; he stated that, while I understood much about Black Magick, I needed to be aware that the book, "Thus Saith Zarathustra", by Nietzche, would be the "Bible of Antichrist".

Now, at the the End of the Age, as all the signs point to the soon appearance of Antichrist, I was told by a Satanist that Zarathustra is a type of Antichrist. And Zarathustra wore white! He was a spiritual leader, and he wore only white. However, in most pictures of Zarathustra, he is shown with a Sun Disc behind his head, as you can see from this picture. What is meant by this symbolism?

Zarathustra is saying in this picture that he is Deity, the supreme God, the Lucifer Sun-God! Therefore, the Pope and all current secular Illuminist leaders are recognizing the Roman Catholic Pontiff as the Sun-God of the Zoroastrian Tradition!

The Pope is the Luciferian Sun-God from the Zoroastrian Tradition!

Now, let us examine the staff which Zarathustra carries, as you can clearly see in this picture, above. This staff is known as the Staff of Authority, or a Rod. This Rod is also a symbol of the Lucifer Sun-God . There is tremendous Satanic power behind a Staff of Authority, also known as the "Rod of Authority".

The Pope's staff on which the Crucifix is suspended comes directly from this Zarathustra Staff of Authority! The Staff of Authority is yet another symbol of the Illuminati, a symbol dating back over 4,000 years! But, consider further the Pope's Staff of Authority; it now carries the pathetic, twisted figure of Jesus Christ on a Twisted Cross; in the 6th Century, Black Magick Satanists created this staff in derision of the traditional Catholic Crucifix, but adopted it later as a symbol of their Antichrist [See RC100 for full details].

If you examine closely the picture, above, of the Pope lying in state. You will notice that this "Twisted Cross" Crucifix is propped up with the crook of his lifeless arm. Therefore, in death as well as in his office for 26 years, Pope John Paul II is tightly tied to this Satanic Staff of Authority!

Now, we know three very important facts:

1. Zarathustra is the Lucifer Sun-God, and he always wears white!

2. The Roman Catholic Pope is the modern-day descendent of Zarathustra, and he always wears white.

3. The Staff of Authority which Zarathustra carried is also carried by the Pope -- now carrying the Twisted Crucifix.

Thus, in modern Illuminism, this Zoroastrian belief is completely carried forward in the office and the person of the Roman Catholic Pope. The Pontiff is a Sun-God!


With this fact in mind, let us now speak to the timing of Pope John Paul II's death and his funeral. The Vatican announced that the funeral for John Paul II will be held on April 8, which is the day the world will witness an Annular Total Eclipse in the 20th degree Aries. Since most of you are not aware of this type of eclipse, let us examine the facts.


"An annular eclipse occurs when the Moon covers the centre of the Sun, but not its edges, leaving a ring (or annulus) of the Sun visible around its edges. This image illustrates how an annular eclipse can occur: the Moon in its elliptical orbit is farther from the Earth, and the umbra is too short to reach the Earth. However, the Moon is directly in front of the Sun, so the parts of the Earth underneath it see a partial eclipse where the centre of the Sun, rather than a 'bite' at the side, is covered. This leaves a ring -- an annulus -- of the Sun visible round the edges of the Moon. (An annulus is the shape of a circle with its centre cut out.) People off to one side of the eclipse track fall under the penumbra (not shown in this diagram, for simplicity), and see a normal partial eclipse."

"As with a partial eclipse, an annular eclipse leaves a section of the Sun's photosphere visible at all times, so again it cannot safely be viewed with the naked eye." ["Science: Mechanics of Solar Eclipses"]

Those people who can see the true Annular Eclipse, with the fiery edges of the Sun visible, are going to be in for a real treat. The occultists, who worship the Sun, Moon, and stars, will positively be in awe. Since a circle always represents "spiritual matter", the occultist will consider this eclipse to be highly significant in the spiritual realm.

But, since the Pontiff Sun-God (John Paul II) will be buried during an Annular Eclipse, occultists throughout the world will easily recognize the symbolism. The Roman Catholic representative of Zarathustra is being buried on a day sacred to Sun God worshippers! Truly, this eclipse will symbolize that Pope John Paul II -- the Sun God for the past 26 years -- has died. Now can you see the pagan significance of those many article headlines which reported that the "light was dying"?

However, April 8 is also significant in another matter: it falls on the New Moon, as all eclipses do! In Witchcraft, the New Moon is the time when a witch casts an evil, Black Magick spell, for the hurt of mankind; the Full Moon is the time when a witch casts a good, White Magic spell for the good of mankind.

When Antichrist arises, supported by his False Prophet Pontiff, the results will be the most evil mankind has ever seen. All the judgments recorded in the books of Revelation, Daniel, in the Major and Minor Prophets, will erupt over the earth. Timing the Pope's burial on a New Moon is fully consistent with the approaching prophetic reality!

However, what is really startling is that, not only will this Pontiff be buried in Sun God tradition on a Solar Eclipse, but a Solar Eclipse occurred on May 18, 1920, the very day he was born! It seems strange to think this thought, but did someone in the supernatural realm pick Karol Jozef Wojtyla (John Paul II) out before he was even born?

Is it now any wonder that this Pope displayed the Luciferian - Illuminist Twisted Cross Crucifix all the days of his Papacy? Is it any wonder John Paul II accomplished more in uniting all the world's religions than any pope in church history? Is it any wonder that this Pope was the only Pontiff to publicly declare his support for a "New World Order"?


Occult Signature

On April 1, 2005, Fox News suddenly began reporting that Pope John Paul II had died. Cutting Edge Webmaster, saw this breaking news story during his lunch hour and immediately posted the developing story on Daily News Updates. He then checked periodically to get the actual news story which he could hotlink his announcement on Daily News Updates.

That story never came, and about 20 minutes later, Reuters reported that the Pope was still recording brain waves and a heartbeat. The actual death announcement was not forthcoming from the Vatican until 21:37 on Saturday, April 2. Did the Pope actually die on April 1? Did the Vatican rush to judgment on April 1, in announcing the Pope's death when he really had not yet died? Is there any reason that someone in authority did not want John Paul II's death to be recorded until the next day -- April 2?

As the picture of the Calendar Calculator demonstrates, the exact length of Pope John Paul II's term of office may be most important, because it calculates into a "26" -- in two ways.

1. The number of full years which this Pope served in office was 26, an occult sacred number because it is formed by (13x2)

2. The exact number of days of his term in office was 9,665 days, which when added like an occultist would normally do, also equals "26". (13x2)

Therefore, the exact timing of this death was very important, to the very day! Pope John Paul II simply could not be allowed to occur one day early, for then the number of total days would not equal "26". While this type of calculation might seem trivial to you, it is exactly the type calculations an occultist of the caliber of the Illuminati would do.

They worship the creature rather than the Creator (Romans 1:25) , which is why they worship the Sun, Moon, and heavenly bodies. This is also the reason occultists believe that numbers contain inherent spiritual power and that a good plan may fail if it is not carried out according to certain "sacred numbers".

The most important sacred numbers are:

* "3" = Pagan Trinity

* "6" = Number of "Perfected Man", the man made perfect through occult rituals practiced by secret societies. Even the number "18" is a function of "6+6+6".

* "11" = The number of the coming Masonic Christ (Daniel 7:7-8 shows Antichrist as the "eleventh horn"

* "13" = Number of extreme rebellion against constituted authority

With this as background, let us also examine some other interesting occult numbers associated with this Pope.

* He was 58 years old at the time of his coronation, a number which equals a "13"

* He was the 263rd Pope, which not only contains a "26", but also which adds to an "11"

* The date of his death announcement adds to "13" -- 4+2+2+0+0+5 (April 2, 2005)

* The timing reported by CNN, above, "21:37" also equals "13" when added!

Breaking news story: Posted Daily News Updates, April 6, 2005

NEWS BRIEF: "Rumours sweep Rome death was kept hidden", smh.au.com, April 6, 2005

"Rome: The politics of electing the next pope moved into bizarre territory with rumours sweeping Rome of a conservative plot to secure the papacy. In a conspiracy theory worthy of a Dan Brown novel, liberals suggested that Pope John Paul II had died a day earlier than was officially declared but the news was withheld to give the conservatives an advantage. According to the rumours, said to have come from sources in the Italian Government and believed by senior cardinals, the Pope died on Friday ... The rumour may sound far fetched but the fact that it is circulating among - and is believed by - informed liberal Vatican-watchers."

As we said, above, had the Pope died a day earlier, on April 1, his length of office would have been 9,664 days, a figure which would not have added to the sacred number, "26".


This next fact will truly amaze you! This pope lived exactly 31,000 days; a "31" is commonly viewed by the occultist as a hidden "13". Having been born on May 18, 1920, and having died on April 2, 2005, Pope John Paul II lived exactly -- precisely 31,000 days!

In the manner in which occultists calculate, the number "31" is often used to hide the more offensive number, "13".

Therefore, you can readily understand that this Pope could not have been allowed to die -- officially anyway -- on April 1, the day before he officially was pronounced dead. His death one day earlier, would have resulted in all these carefully constructed numbers would have flown right out the proverbial window!

Karol Jozef Wojtyla simply had to die April 2, 2005!


Notice that Pope John Paul II is lying in state wearing his traditional white Zoroastrian robe covered by the traditional red robe of royalty. If you look closely, you will see that the white robe projects to his shoes, coming out well beyond the hem of red robe of royalty.

Now, examine closely the far right picture, taken during the January 24, 2000, ecumenical prayer service attended by "Roman Catholic cardinals, Muslim clerics, Jewish rabbis, Buddhists, Sikhs, Bahais, Hindus, Jains, Zoroastrians and members of African traditional religions" (BBC News, "Pope leads world prayer day", January 24, 2000]

Note the almost unbelievable red color of the background behind the Pope and his participants in this picture above. This deep red speaks of the Illuminati, as it is their color of human sacrifice and of Spiritual Warfare. One of the founders of the Masters of the Illuminati was Mayer Amschel Bauer, who changed his name later to Rothschild. He was the money man behind the public founder, Adam Weishaupt. Bauer's favorite symbol was the royal red hexagram, which he hung on the outside of his door!

Centuries later, Lenin adopted the color red for his Communist flag, while Israel adopted the hexagram as its national symbol. Both the color red and the hexagram point directly back to Mayer Amschel Bauer (Rothschild).

Please now study the Satanic symbol of the forces cooperating to produce the New World Order, "I Witch".

As you can see, the blood flowing from the letters, "I WITCH" just below the Eye of Lucifer, represents blood. This flowing blood symbolizes the understanding of the Illuminati that the Kingdom of Antichrist can only be achieved through much blood, rivers of blood. If this color seems like the Lenin red of Communism, you are absolutely correct! In Seminar 2, "America Determines the True Flow of History", we demonstrate how the Illuminati created Communism to be the exact opposite system [Antithesis] of the existing Thesis system of the West. Further, Rothschild -- the founder of the Masters of the Illuminati along with Adam Weishaupt in 1776 -- literally means "Red Shield", the kind of red you see behind the Pope and his religious guests!

This is the color of the red robe of royalty in which the Pope is dressed as he lies in state.

Thus, Pope John Paul II is dressed in the colors of the Illuminati:

* Red -- the color of Bauer/Rothschild

* White -- the color of Zarathustra and his white robe, as noted above

But, there is at least one more link to the pagan practices of Illuminism. The "middle lead casket" in which John Paul II's body will rest has numerous symbols etched into it. One of those symbols is the "Skull and Crossed Bones", the same type of symbol made infamous by the secret society of the Presidents Bush, "Skull & Bones".

This fact confirms the Illuminist nature of the Papacy, the same nature as the Black Magick secret society, Skull & Bones, of which Presidents Bush are lifelong members.


What does all this mean?

On the global scale, we have known since August 18, 1991, that the Illuminati had decided that the Roman Catholic Pope -- whomever he is at the time -- will be the head religious figure of the global New World Order Religion (NEWS1052). This designation places the Pontiff as the False Prophet of Revelation 13:11-18. As False Prophet, the Pope will unite all religions under his leadership, support Antichrist fully, display the same occult powers as Antichrist, and force the peoples of the world to take the Mark of the Beast.

Since this position is so very important to the Illuminati, and since its occupant will be so very busy, it does seem logical that an 84-year-old could not fulfill these strenuous demands. If the world stands as close to the appearance of Antichrist as it seems to stand, a change in the office of the Pope seems to be inevitable.

As Israel begins to carry out her planned -- and prophetic -- annihilation of the Palestinians (NEWS1422, NEWS1620), we find yet another indicator that the end may be approaching. Pope John Paul II seemingly must give way to a younger, more energetic Pontiff.

However, as the world says "goodbye" to Pope John Paul II, the Illuminati seems determined to stage his death and his burial according to global occult tradition -- as we have noted above.

Occultists throughout the world will understand through the symbolism and through the numeric timing, that Pope John Paul II was thoroughly Illuminist and thoroughly in tune with the Plan of the Great White Brotherhood! The next Pope will be similarly in tune with the Plan. At the very time the world is speeding quickly to the appearance of Antichrist, a critical change in the Papacy necessitated by age and infirmity has now occurred.

Now, the False Prophet may emerge who can energetically support the Antichrist.

Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.

If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.

If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.

If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.

We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.

Finally, we would love to hear from you.
