For the first 3 centuries, there were 10 great pagan persecutions of Christianity, culminating in the longest and bitterest under Emperor Diocletian. It is called the Era of the Martyrs, and the bishops and deacons were always the first to be arrested and executed. In Roma, it is known as the Era of the Catacombs, when the life of the Christians consisted of persecutions above ground . . . and prayer underground. Persecution kept the Congregation pure and nobody lifted up his head above his brothers, or sought preeminence.


Pope Alexander (107115)
never existed.
 

It is absurd to claim that there were any Popes in Roma prior to Emperor Jesus Constantine.

The handsome Emperor Trajan was sole ruler of the Empire during the reign of the mythical Pope Alexander I.

After 313, when Romulus and Remus became Saints Peter and Paul, the stage was set for the rise of the Papacy!

 

Roman Emperor Trajan (53117). Emperor from 98 to 117.

Saint Peter was linked to Roma for 2 reasons: he used his sword to defend Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane, and he denied Christ 3 times before the rooster crowded. The impetuous Peter later repented, and became a stalwart Apostle and missionary to the JEWS. He never once set foot in the imperial city. Only after seeing 3 visions would he enter the house of a Roman soldier named Cornelius!


Pope Alexander II (1015–1073).
Pope from 1061 to 1073.
 

William the "Conqueror" landed unopposed at Hastings in October 1066, carrying the banner of Pope Alexander II.

Pope Alexander was named after Alexander the Coppersmith, "who did much evil to Saint Paul" (II Timothy 4:14).

The famous Bayeux Tapestry is the only surviving record of the Babylonian Captivity of Britannia by the Normans.

The Normans leisurely disembarking their horses.

After the Normans leisurely disembarked, they marched unopposed to London. There Duke William became King "William the Conqueror." That fateful event was the beginning of the Babylonian Captivity of Britannia.


Pope Alexander III (11051181).
Pope from 1159 to 1181.
 

King Henry II and Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine were contemporaries of Pope Alexander III.

30-year-old Eleanor of Aquitaine married 19-year-old Henry Plantagenet in 1152.

The king was blamed for the assassination of Thomas Becket, and as penance, Pope Gregory VIII ordered him to invade and annex Hibernia to the Papal Roman Empire.

 

Queen Eleanor (1122–1204).
Queen from 1154 to 1189.

After his demise in 1181, 2 Popes followed him in quick succession: Lucius III (11811185), and Urban III (11851187). Then began the very short reign of Pope Gregory VIII.


Pope Alexander IV (12541261) holding
a copy of Expositio in Apocalipsim.
 

As the year 1260 approached, the writings of Joachim of Fiore were all the rage.

In 1196, Joachim wrote a massive commentary on the Apocalypse entitled Expositio in Apocalipsim.

He divided history into 3 parts, and he predicted that the 3rd epoch would begin in 1260.

The coming era would be the "Age of the Holy Spirit."

 

Joachim of Fiore
(11351202).

The Muslims call Mohammed the "Holy Spirit" or Paraclete....When nothing happened in 1260, the date was pushed back to 1290, then a new date of 1335 was proclaimed. That prophecy almost came to pass in that year because the Black Plague wiped out 50 million souls, and left the door wide open for the Terrible Turks.

The next Pope Alexander's birth name was Peter of Candia or Peter Phillarges. It is beyond belief why he wanted to occupy the "Chair of St. Peter," yet adopted the throne name of Alexander.


Antipope Alexander V.
Pope from June 1409 to 1410.
 

"Antipope" Alexander V reigned during the Great Western Schism. Since all Popes are Antichrists, an Antipope is actually a "good Pope."

During the Schism, there were 3 "Holy Fathers," all claiming to be the genuine successors of St. Peter, and excommunicating their rivals.

Pisan Pope John XXIII was one of the claimants to the "Chair of St. Peter."

 

Pisan Pope John XXIII (13701419). Reigned from 1410 to 1415.

In 1415, Saint John Hus was burned alive at the stake because he advocated getting rid of ALL of the Popes . . . forever! In 1958, Angelo Roncalli adopted the throne name John XXIII when he succeeded Pope Pius XII.


Pope Alexander VI (14311503).
Pope from 1492 to 1503.

 

The next Alexander needs no introduction because his very name is synonymous with wickedness.

After Portuguese Christopher Columbus returned from visiting Cuba, Alexander donated the entire New World to Spain!

His son, Cesare, was known as "The Strangler" because he strangled his brother Giovanni and threw his body into the Tiber!


Cesare Borgia
(14751507).

The entire Papacy of Alexander was one of murder and mayhem. The highlight of his Papacy was the "Dance of the Chestnuts," which took place on October 31, 1501. A German priest named Johann Burckard kept a diary of his entire reign.


Lucrezia Borgia
(14801519)
.

 

Lucrezia Borgia was known as "The Poisoner."

She had an incestuous affair with her father . . . and her brother!

His great-grandson, Francis Borgia, was co-founder of the Jesuits with Ignatius Loyola.

Francis Borgia (1510–1572).
Francis Borgia (1510–1572).
Jesuit general from 1565 to 1572.

Pope Alexander died of poisoning 2 years later and the blessed Reformation of Saint Martin Luther put an end to the debaucheries in the Vatican!


Pope Alexander VII.
Pope from 1655 to 1667.
 

The pontificate of Alexander VII fell during one of the most momentous times in British history.

As the year 1666 approached, the Fifth Monarchy Men believed that the downfall of the Papacy was near.

Catholic King Charles I was beheaded in 1649, and the country became a republic under Cromwell for 10 years.

 
Sir George Downing
Sir George Downing
(1623–1684).

However, a counter-revolution followed and the monarchy was restored by his son, King Charles II. Charles launched the greatest manhunt in the history of the world to find the "regicides" who signed his father's death warrant. They were more than ably assisted by Sir George Downing—the British Judas Iscariot!


Pope Alexander VIII.
Pope from 1689 to
1691.
 

After Polish hero Jan III Sobieski defeated the Terrible Turks outside Vienna on September 12, 1683, he sent the captured Turkish banners to Pope Innocent XI (1673–1689).

That pontiff was sick and went to St. Peter shortly afterward.

He was succeeded by Pope Alexander VIII, who couldn't persuade Sultan Suleiman II to launch another attempt at the conquest of Germany.

 

 
King Jan III Sobieski (1629-1696).
King Jan III Sobieski
(1629–1696).
Reigned from 1674 to 1696).

Succeeding Popes were no more successful in persuading the Terrible Turks to invade Germany again.

Pope Alexander VIII was the last Alexander in the nightmarish Papal dynasty. The best way to rescue Catholics . . . and Muslims . . . from the Babylonian system is to present a true history of the papal dynasty:

Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity, for it is the time of JEHOVAH's vengeance; he will render unto her a recompense (Jeremiah 51:6).

And I heard another voice from heaven saying, "Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues" (Apocalypse 18:4).
