The name STEPHEN comes from the Greek STEPHANOS and it means a CROWN. The first Christian martyr to receive a crown was St. Stephen, who was stoned to death while the future St. Paul held the coats of the men who did the stoning:

And they stoned Stephen, calling upon the name of JEHOVAH, and saying "Adonai Joshua received my spirit" (Acts 7:59).

That same glorified Joshua appeared to his beloved John the Apostle on the Isle of Patmos and promised a CROWN to all who overcame Apollyon:

Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown (Gk. stephanos) of life (Apocalypse 2:10).

The Messiah was referring to the last great pagan persecution under Diocletian which lasted for 10 years.


Pope Stephen I (254257)
was a myth.
 

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

Emperor Valerian ruled the Empire from 253 to 260, and he was a bitter persecutor of Christians.

If Stephen I was bishop of Roma, he most certainly died as a martyr, and he received the CROWN of life from the Messiah!

 

Emperor Valerian (195
260).
Emperor from 253 to 260.

The Vatican considers Stephen a saint . . . but not a martyr....If he was the leader of the Congregation in Roma, he would have been the first to be arrested and beheaded by order of the persecuting Emperor Valerian.


Pope Stephen II (714757).
Pope from 752 to 757.
 

The Papacy of Stephen II was a milestone in world history.

With the Donation of Pepin, the Papal States were born, and the pontiffs was no longer subject to the Exarch of Ravenna, or the Emperor in Constantinople.

The pontiffs began to wear the triple crown to commemorate their triumph over the civil power represented by the Visigoths, Lombards, and Constantinople!

 

The triple crown and the keys of Romulus and Remus.

That Papal crown is a FAKE because only those who believe in Christ, and triumph over Apollyon, will wear an everlasting crown!

Monks writing the missive from St. Peter up in heaven.
Benedictine monks forging the missive
from "St. Peter" up in heaven.
 

It is beyond belief, but Roma became a monarchy once again in 755, with the infamous airmail letter from "St. Peter" to King Pepin of the Franks, commanding him to save Roma from the Lombards!!

That was the second beginning of the 1260 years of Papal supremacy!

 
King Pepin was astonished that St. Peter even knew about him!!
King Pepin was astonished that "St. Peter"
even knew about him!!

Since the founding of their (SPQR) Republic in 753 BC, the Romans HATED crowns, and no Emperor ever wore a crown. The Romans particularly despised females wearing crowns!


Pope Stephen III.
Pope from August 768 to 772.

The future Pope Stephen III sent his predecessor, Pope Paul I, to St. Peter on June 28, 767.

Then he replaced Pope Paul's successor named Constantine II.

The pontiff summoned the Lateran Council of 769 which officially deposed and condemned Constantine to be tortured!

 

 


Pope Constantine II.
Pope from June 767 to August 768.

By order of "Holy Father" Stephen III, Constantine was tortured and his tongue was torn out. This definitely prevented him from ever challenging Stephen again. Finally, he was sent to St. Peter in 772.


Pope Stephen IV (770817).
Pope from 816 to 817.
 

In 816, Pope Stephen IV crowned Louis I as Holy "Roman" Emperor.

Louis was the only surviving son of Charlemagne by his wife Hildegard, and he began his reign as co-emperor with his father Charlemagne in 813.

Charlemagne died in 814 and Louis succeeded him

Pope Stephen officially crowned him Holy "Roman" Emperor in 816.

 

Fake "Roman" Emperor Louis I
.
(778
840).
Ruled from 814 to 840.

Pope Stephen never even bothered to summon Louis to Roma to be crowned. He was crowned at the city of Rheims on October 5, 816. If he had misgivings about a Roman Emperor not residing in Roma, he never expressed them.


Pope Stephen V.
Pope from 885 to 891.
 

The most memorable event of his pontificate was the crowning of his son, Guy of Spoleto, as Holy "Roman" Emperor in 891.

That "Roman" Emperor died just 3 years later.

Stephen was following by Pope Formosus, who was exhumed after his death, and put on trial by Pope Stephen VI.

 

 

Pope Formosus (816896).
Pope from 891 to 896.

We know that dead men (even Popes) cannot stand trial and defend themselves, but the next Pope was convinced that his dead predecessor could stand trial, and answer certain questions about his conduct while pontiff.


Pope Stephen VI.
Pope from 896 to 897.
 

Pope Stephen VI convened the most bizarre and horrifying trial in the entire history of the world.

He had his predecessor, Pope Formosus, exhumed and put on trial for supposed violations of the canon law.

At the Cadaver Synod (also called the Cadaver Trial); Pope Formosus was dressed in papal vestments, and then commanded to answer various question concerning his pontificate.

 

The trial of the
corpse of
Pope Formosus.

Obviously, the pontiff could not answer because he had been dead for 8 months. The corpse was found guilty, stripped of its vestments, deprived of three fingers of its right hand (the blessing fingers), clad in the garb of a layman, and thrown into the Tiber (it was later recovered by a monk).


Pope Stephen VII.
Pope 929 to 931.
 

Pope Stephen VII reigned for only 2 years before he was sent to St. Peter by the infamous Marozia.

Marozia was a veritable Jezebel on steroids, and the precursor to Lucretia Borgia.

She did that to make way for her favorite son, Pope John XI.

 

 

The infamous courtesan Marozia
(890937).

The 5-year-reign of Pope John XI was considered a long reign during the 10th century when the life span of most pontiffs was very short indeed.


Pope Stephen VIII.
Pope from 939 to 942.
 

Pope Stephen's reign was preceeded by Pope Leo VII.

Stephen is considered a "good Pope" because his Papacy was very short!

The 10th century is called the saeculum obscurum (Latin: Dark Ages).

The history of that nightmarish century is so foul and filthy that the records are kept in the most secure place in the Vatican's Secret Archives.

 

Pope Leo VII.
Pope from 936 to 939.

As the year 1000 AD approached, Catholics were told that the world was about to end, and the best way to prepare for the Judgment Day was to be poor....Millions did sign over their property to the Church, and it was duly notarized by the Papal canon lawyers.

When nothing happened, they realized that they had made a colossus mistake . . . and many tried to retrieve their property . . . but it was too late!


Pope Stephen IX (10201058).
Pope from 1057 to 1058.
 

Pope Stephen IX was another "good Pope" because his reign was very short!

He was succeeded by Gérard de Bourgogne who took the name Nicholas II.

Immediately after he became pontiff, he entered into negotiations with Duke William of Normandy for the Babylonian Captivity of Britannia.

 

Pope Nicholas II (990-1061).
Pope from 1059 to 1061.

That Captivity was carried out by his successor, Pope Alexander II. Alexander was named after "Alexander the Coppersmith," who vehemently opposed the Apostle Paul.


The so-called "Battle of Hastings" as
depicted on the tapestry.

According to the tapestry, King Harold and his 2 brothers were killed at the "Battle of Hastings."

That tapestry shows 2 King Harolds. One receiving and arrow in his eye and the other receiving a sword slash on the thigh.

Notice the letter O just above his eye.

 


King Harold pulling an arrow out of his eye and
then receiving a sword slash on his thigh.

The Famous Battle of Hastings in 1066 never happened; the real battle took place at Stamford Bridge, and all the Anglo-Saxons were slaughtered by the berserk Vikings.

Pope Stephen IX was the last Stephen 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).
