During the entire reign of both Popes Paul VI and John Paul II, the Satanic Twisted Cross was continually held before the adoring masses of Catholic faithful, who were not in any way aware that they were adoring a symbol of Antichrist. This scene was eerily similar to the wording of the Book of Revelation, in Chapter 13, that great chapter which deals with Beast #1 (Antichrist) and Beast #2 (False Religious Prophet).

From this chapter, we are told that the False Religious Prophet will work on behalf of Antichrist, will possess the same occult power as Antichrist, and will force all mankind to either accept the "Mark of the Beast" under the skin or be beheaded. All these activities will be carried out on behalf of the First Beast, Antichrist.

One of the most important verses is the one dealing with the immense popularity of both Beast #1 and Beast #2. Listen as the wording suggests these people are under some kind of supernatural spell which will cause them to love these two world leaders immensely.

"... the whole earth went after the beast in amazement and admiration. They fell down and paid homage to the dragon, because he had bestowed on the beast all his dominion and authority; they also praised and worshiped the beast ..." [Revelation 13:3b-4a; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]

While the specific event which triggers this outpouring of love and admiration for the two Beasts is the attempted assassination of Antichrist, I believe this verse reveals the depth of the love the peoples of the world will have for both Antichrist and the False Religious Prophet before Antichrist was nearly assassinated. The peoples of the world will really love these two men!

I believe they will have been preconditioned by such supernatural power as produced by the use of such a powerful symbol as the "Twisted Cross". What is the Twisted Cross, when was it introduced into the realm of Luciferian worship, and by whom?

For the answer to that question, let us turn to a Roman Catholic author, Piers Compton, writing in his book, "The Broken Cross: Hidden Hand In the Vatican", Channel Islands, Neville Spearman, 1981.

This Bent Crucifix is "... a sinister symbol, used by Satanists in the sixth century, that had been revived at the time of Vatican Two. This was a bent or broken cross, on which was displayed a repulsive and distorted figure of Christ, which the black magicians and sorcerers of the Middle Ages had made use of to represent the Biblical term 'Mark of the Beast'. Yet, not only Paul VI, but his successors, the two John-Pauls, carried that object and held it up to be revered by crowds, who had not the slightest idea that it stood for anti-Christ." (p. 72)

On page 56 Compton prints a picture of the current Pope, John Paul II, holding this bent or broken cross, just as we have shown Pope Benedict doing, above.

Therefore, both Popes - John Paul II and Pope Benedict - are telling all occultists the world over that he is not a Traditional Pope, but a Pope committed to carrying out the role of 'World Religious Leader' as called for in the New World Order Plan. Another Roman Catholic author, Malachi Martin, made this same claim - that Pope John Paul II is committed to the New World Order Plan in his book, "The Keys To This Blood".

As you can see, the Crucifix which Pope John Paul II is holding up to adoring crowds is not the Traditional Crucifix, but is the Satanic 'Bent', or 'Broken, Cross'! This Bent Crucifix was created by Satanists to depict Antichrist and his Mark of the Beast! The Traditional Crucifix depicts a full figure of Jesus Christ hanging on the Cross, which is anathama enough to a Bible-believing Christian; but, this crucifix shows a very thin, emaciated Jesus Christ-looking as though He were a victim of starvation, hanging pathetically from the Cross, with His arms and legs painfully thin and emaciated. Also, notice that the horizontal cross ends curve downward rather dramatically.

This "Twisted Cross" was originated by Satanists - sorcerers - magicians in the Middle Ages, adopted by the Masters of the Illuminati some time after 1776, and displayed for the first time by Pope Paul VI in 1963; the symbolism was very clear: the Illuminati had taken control of the Vatican and Black Magick Witchcraft was now the official religion of the Vatican! From this moment, the "Vatican" was truly living up to the original meaning of its name: to "Divine the Future", to Prophesy.

Very soon, you will see the appearance of a global leader, calling himself The Christ, who will claim to be Jesus Christ returned, the Jewish Messiah, and the Avatar figure for which all the major religions are awaiting, all in one man. This will be Antichrist. Then, very quickly thereafter, a global religious leader will step forward to aid the Antichrist; this religious leader will possess the same miraculous power of Antichrist. At this moment, the prophecy of Revelation 13:11-14 will be fulfilled; this global religious leader will be the Biblical False Prophet.

The New World Order Plan calls for this global religious leader [False Prophet] to be the Roman Catholic Pope (NEWS1052), and certainly, John Paul II's use of this Satanic Bent Cross is consistent with this part of the Plan.



Now, take a close look at this picture of Pope Benedict XVI adoring the Twisted Cross during his installation ceremony ("World Photos: Pope Benedict XVI At His Installment Mass", Yahoo News, April 25, 2005].

Pope Benedict seems to be adoring this Twisted Cross in much the same way as the priest adores the wafer during the Eucharist ceremony. During the Eucharist, both the priest and the faithful are to contemplate long and hard over the fact that, through a unique mystery of the Roman Catholic Church, the bread wafer has just become the body of Jesus Christ; I wonder what Pope Benedict is contemplating as he adores this Twisted Cross crucifix? He cannot be adoring the real Jesus Christ, for He is not on the cross anymore, repudiates the Mass because it sacrifices Him over and over again, and is now seated at the right hand of the Father, in Heaven!

Another pagan image visible is this picture is his mitre, which is nothing more than the old Philistine Dagon Fish Mitre, the fish god which was thoroughly destroyed by the God of the Holy Bible! One of the most obvious symbols that Roman Catholicism is just ancient accursed Satanism dressed camouflaged as Christianity is this ridiculous Satanic Dagon mitre. Who is Dagon, you might ask, and what is his mitre? Let us examine the Bible.

"And the lords of the Philistines gathered them together to offer a great sacrifice unto Dagon their god, and to rejoice; for they said, Our god hath delivered Samson our enemy into our hand." [Judges 16:23]

God then made it quite clear that Dagon was just a false, empty, powerless god!

"They took the ark of God into the house of Dagon and set it beside Dagon, their idol. When they of Ashdod arose early on the morrow, behold, Dagon had fallen upon his face on the ground before the ark of the Lord. So they took Dagon and set him in his place again. But when they arose early the next morning, behold, Dagon had again fallen on his face on the ground before the ark of the Lord, and his head and both the palms of his hands were lying cut off on the threshold; only the trunk of Dagon was left him. This is the reason neither the priests of Dagon nor any who come into Dagon's house tread on the threshold of Dagon in Ashdod to this day. But the hand of the Lord was heavy upon the people of Ashdod, and He caused mice to spring up and there was very deadly destruction and He smote the people with very painful tumors or boils, both Ashdod and its territory. When the men of Ashdod saw that it was so, they said, The ark of the God of Israel must not remain with us, for His hand is heavy on us and on Dagon our god." [1 Samuel 6:1-7; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]

How terrible is it that "His Holiness", the Pope, wears a Dagon fish head mitre? He is glorifying the same weak, powerless, dumb, blind idol god that the True God of the Bible cursed and destroyed, and then turn around to deliver such a painful retribution upon the people and the land of the Philistines! This Pope is wearing an accursed Dagon mitre! This one symbol should be enough to convince the right-minded, sober person that the entire Roman Catholic system is accursed, because it has resurrected ancient Satanism in many forms, not the least of which is the Dagon Fish Mitre.

But, before we leave this subject, we need to learn a few more facts.

A. "Dagon -- Little fish; diminutive from dag = a fish, the fish-god; the national god of the Philistines (Jdg 16:23). This idol had the body of a fish with the head and hands of a man. It was an Assyrio-Babylonian deity." [Easton's Illustrated Dictionary]. Dagon is Babylonian in origin. Truly, Revelation 17 is right when it calls the church of the False Prophet "Mystery Babylon".

B. When you examine the picture, you will see various representations of the way in which the Dagon Mitre was worn. At the far left you will see a Dagon priest wearing his mitre, sprinkling holy water with one hand while holding the container of such water in the other hand.

C. The picture in the upper right shows two Dagon priests sprinkling holy water while looking upward to an Egyptian symbol of Sun Worship


D. This picture to the left is of the Goddess Cybele in her Dagon Mitre sprinkling holy water. Cybele was worshipped in Rome and was called the great queen mother goddess. Some scholars say the Basilica of Saint Peter actually stands upon the former site of Cybele's main temple. http://www.fortunecity.com/greenfield/bp/890/dagon.html

The term, "Queen Mother Goddess" is directly equivalent to the accursed "Queen of Heaven". (Jer 7:18; Jer 44:17, 25)

It is highly likely that the Virgin Mary may have been taken from the Goddess Cybele, especially given the usage of the mitre and the location of St. Peter's Basilica on the former site of Cybele's main temple. (Ibid.)

The fact that Pope Benedict XVI is both holding the Twisted Cross and wearing the Dagon Fish Hat demonstrates his continued loyalty to the False Prophet Religious System out of which the actual False Prophet will arise.

But, there is more symbolsim in Pope Benedict's installation!


Please take a close look at the golden robe worn by Pope Benedict XVI ("World Photos: Golden Robe of Pope Benedict XVI", Yahoo News, April 25, 2005]

The one single factor I wish to point out to you are the two large seashells prominently displayed down the front of the Pope's golden-colored robes. Normally, people would not think twice about seashells, for they are a common decoration in many homes throughout the world. No doubt, many of you have some sort of seashell decoration somewhere in your home or office.

However, because this robe -- adorned so prominently by a religious leader during a coronation Mass -- is being used in a pagan religious ceremony, it is within the pagan religious system we must go for explanation.

When we do go to the pagan religious world to see the hidden, esoteric meaning of seashells, a very shocking revelation is plainly revealed. What do pagans ascribe to the seashell? They ascribe Lucifer!!


The seashell is equal to the Oriental Lotus, and as such, represents both Venus and Aphrodite, with the deepest meaning pointing directly to Lucifer! According to occult tradition, “Buddha was born from pedme (lotus), while Aphrodite from the sea shell.” (“Universe In Chinese – Japanese – Buddhism”)

Notice from the picture to the right, Aphrodite/Venus is shown coming out of the seashell being “born” into existence in much the same way Buddhism teaches that Buddha was born out of the Lotus. However, in our text, above, we learn that Venus is Lucifer according to occult tradition. This fact is verified by Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary and by a Black Magick website, called “The Aspect of Lucifer”.

Dr. Cathy Burns also firmly links Aphrodite with Venus -- they are the same type of goddess!

"As just mentioned, Cupid (Eros) was the son of Venus (Aphrodite). From Eros we get the word 'erotic' and Venus was also considered to be the Roman goddess of erotic love." [Dr. Cathy Burns, "Masonic And Occult Symbols Illustrated", p. 168]

Dr. Cathy Burns now captures the essence of this belief that Venus is Lucifer, held by the ancient -- and modern -- occult practitioners.

" 'Lucifer prepares man in all ways for the experience of Christhood and the Christ prepares man for the experience of God. But the light that reveals to us the presence of the Christ comes from Lucifer . He is the light giver. He is aptly named the Morning Star because it is his light that heralds for man the dawn of a greater consciousness. He is present when that dawn is realized ... Christ is the same force as Lucifer, but moving in seemingly the opposite direction'." [Dr. Burns, quoting David Spangler, "Finding Heaven On Earth", New Age Journal, January/February 1988, Vol. 4, Issue 1, reprinted in "Masonic And Occult Symbols Illustrated", p. 188]

Dr. Burns then concludes: "Of course, quotes like this aren't really surprising since Masons themselves ... tell us that Lucifer (or Venus) is the Light-bearer and the Morning Star. Blavatsky writes about the Druids, Magi, Zoroastrians, greeting the Morning Star -- the beautiful Venus-Lucifer." [Ibid.]

Therefore, the symbolism of the seashell in the occult tradition is quite plain:

Seashell = Aphrodite = Venus = Lucifer

Now we know the stark truth about these seashells being worn by Pope Benedict XVI on April 24, 2005, during his Installation Mass: he is wearing the robes of Lucifer.

But, why should we be surprised? He is holding up the disgusting "Twisted Cross" of Lucifer and he is wearing the terrible Dagon Fish God Mitre! Furthermore, as he is trumpeting to the world the symbolic reality that he is serving Lucifer, the undiscerning masses of Catholic faithful cheer him onward, going "after the beast in amazement and admiration. They fell down and paid homage..."

You have been forewarned. A picture is worth a thousand words, and these Bent Cross pictures labels Pope Benedict XVI (Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger) as another Pope serving the Illuminati, in the line of Pope Paul VI and Pope John Paul II.

With stark, plain Antichrist - False Prophet symbolism like this, the discerning Christian can know for certain that the plan for the appearance of Antichrist is on track and getting close. Remember, according to St. Malachy's prophecies concerning the last 112 popes, Benedict XVI is # 111.

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.
