THE ENGLISH WORD CHURCH IS DERIVED FROM THE GREEK GODDESS CIRCE
WHO TURNED SAILORS INTO SWINE IN HOMER'S
ODYSSEY!

The Douay-Rheims Version is the authorized translation of the Latin Vulgate into English. Saint Paul's preaching the Resurrection of Christ caused a riot at Ephesus:

So that not only this our craft is in danger to be set at nought, but also the temple of great Diana shall be reputed for nothing! Yea, and her majesty shall begin to be destroyed, whom all Asia and the world worshippeth (Acts 19:27, Douay-Rheims Version).

The Douay-Rheims translation was made during the reign of the Queen Elizabeth double, so that was an oblique reference to her majesty the queen!


Statue of Aphrodite or Diana
of the Ephesians.
 

Aphrodite was the twin sister of Apollyon. She was called Diana or Minerva in Roma.

Her magnificent temple at Ephesus was one of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World.

When Paul arrived at Ephesus he was invading the very HQ of Satan or Lucifer!

Naturally, a riot broke out, and Saint Paul's life was in danger once again!

Aphrodite at Ephesus.

The Romans detested riots and disorder, so they demanded that the issue be settled in court. Back then the people didn't have to contend with lawyers. Lawyers began as canon lawyers during the pontificate of Pope "Innocent" III.

That court, or ecclesia, was run by pagan worshippers of Aphrodite or Diana:

Si quid autem alterius rei quaeritis in legitima ecclesia poterit absolvi (Acts 19:39, Latin Vulgate Version).

And if you inquire after any other matter, it may be decided in a lawful assembly (Acts 19:39, Douay-Rheims Version).

The foundation stone or Rock of the Church of Roma is found in Saint Matthew 16:18:

Et ego dico tibi quia tu es Petrus et super hanc petram aedificabo ecclesiam meam et portae inferi non praevalebunt adversum eam. (St Matthew 16:18, Latin Vulgate Version).

And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it (St. Matthew 16:18, Douay-Rheims Version).

The translators of the authorized King James Version slavishly followed the readings of the Douay-Rheims Version:

And I say unto thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gate of hell shall not prevail against it (St. Matthew 16:18, King James Version).

Around 250 years before Christ, the Hebrew Scriptures were translated into KOINE Greek. That translation was called the Septuagint or LXX for the 70 Hebrew scholars that took part in the translation. No genuine copy of the Septuagint exists today except in the Secret Archives of the Vatican!

When the translators encountered words or concepts that were unknown in Greek, like Sabbath and baptism, they imported those words into the Greek translation. The Hebrew Sheol was very similar to the Greek concept of the underworld, so they kept that word in the Greek translation.

The Hebrew word for the assembly of JEHOVAH's people was HILLAL, but the Greek equivalent is not known. The closest word to HILLAL today is CONGREGATION. The Romans borrowed many words from Greek . . . so the word CONGREGATION was probably a Greek word.

The English word "CHURCH" comes from CIRCE!!

The Greek word ekklesia is translated as CHURCH in English. Church or kirke comes from the Greek goddess CIRCE who specialized in turning men into PIGS....Here is the definition of the word "CHURCH" from the Oxford English Dictionary:

"CHURCH: FORMS: (a) cirice, cyrice, chiriche, churiche, chereche, (b) CIRCE, cyrce, chyrce, cirke, etc., etc.,
"The ulterior derivation has been keenly disputed. The L. circus, and a Gothic word kélikn 'tower, upper chamber' (app. originally Gaulish) have both been proposed (the latter suggested by the Alemannic chilihha), but are set aside as untenable; and there is now a general agreement among scholars in referring it to the Greek word, properly kurion adj. 'of the Lord, dominicum, dominical' (f. Kurios lord), which occurs, from the 3rd century at least, used substantively (sc. doma, or the like) = 'house of the Lord', as a name of the Christian house of worship. Of this the earliest cited instances are in the Apostolical Constitutions (II. 59), a 300, the edict of Maximinus (303-13), cited by Eusebius (Eccl. Hist. ix. 10) a 324, the Councils of Ancyra 314 (Canon 15), Neo-Caesarea 314-23 (Can. 5), and Laodicea (Can. 28). Thenceforward it appears to have been in fairly common use in the East: e.g., Constantine named several churches built by him Kuriaka (Eusebius De Laud. Const. xvii)," (Oxford English Dictionary).

People in the ancient world were very familiar with Homer's Odyssey, and the encounter of Odysseus and his crew with the witch Circe.


The witch Circe offering the
GOLDEN CUP to
O
dysseus.
 

Circe's island was a veritable menagerie or zoo, with wild animals everywhere.

Those were former men who fell victims to her enchantments.

When Odysseus visited her island she changed some of his crew into pigs.

When she tried the same spell on Odysseus, it failed to work.

 

Circe specialized in turning men
into porky pigs!.

Homer was one of the greatest poets of the ancient world, and his journey home after the Trojan Wars is called the Odyssey:

When they reached Circe's house they found it built of cut stones, on a site that could be seen from far, in the middle of the forest. There were wild mountain wolves and lions prowling all round it—poor bewitched creatures whom she had tamed by her enchantments and drugged into subjection. They did not attack my men, but wagged their great tails, fawned upon them, and rubbed their noses lovingly against them. As hounds crowd round their master when they see him coming from dinner—for they know he will bring them something—even so did these wolves and lions with their great claws fawn upon my men, but the men were terribly frightened at seeing such strange creatures"(The Odyssey, Book 10, 210).

Circe turned Odyssues's men into swine with her witches brew:

They called her (Circe) and she came down, unfastened the door, and bade them enter. They, thinking no evil, followed her, all except Eurylochus, who suspected mischief and stayed outside. When she had got them into her house, she set them upon benches and seats and mixed them a mess with cheese, honey, meal, and Pramnian wine but she drugged it with wicked poisons to make them forget their homes, and when they had drunk she turned them into pigs by a stroke of her wand, and shut them up in her pigsties. They were like pigs—head, hair, and all, and they grunted just as pigs do; but their senses were the same as before, and they remembered everything (The Odyssey, Book 10, 210).

CIRCE tried to make a PIG of Odysseus (Ulysses) when he came to rescue his companions . . . but the spell failed to work!

Anybody who read the Apocalypse of Saint John could see immediately that the woman described in the book was none other than CIRCE—the filthy witch who turned men into swine:

So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls,having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH (Apocalypse 17:3-5).

Charles Darwin tried to turn men into animals by claiming that they were descended from MONKEYS! The real reason he did that was in order to marry first cousin Emma Wedgwood and get his greedy hands on the Wedgwood fortune.

Jesus is depicted as a transgender on Catholic crucifixes, statues, and art!!

In the Latin Vulgate Version, the Messiah who would bruise Satan's head is called a SHE . . . or a FEMALE:

I will put enmities between thee and the woman, and thy seed and her seed: she shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel (Genesis 3:15, Douay-Rheims Version).

The translators of the authorized King James Version slavishly followed the readings of the Douay-Rheims Version, but they put IT instead of SHE:

And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel (Genesis 3:15, King James Version).

That verse is called the protoevangelium, or the first promise of a Redeemer for mankind.


The Egyptian transgender
named "Hapi."
 

In the Holy Bible, Egypt is a type of Satan's kingdom and Pharaoh is a type of the Antichrist.

Egypt was also known as the "land of twins and transgenders."

Hapi or Hapy was the transgender Egyptian god who lived in a cavern and was credited with the annual flooding of the Nile River. Human sacrifices were offered to "Hapy" to ensure the annual inundation!

All the symbols, rituals, and dogmas of the Papal religion were borrowed from ancient Egypt.

 

The "Hapi" transgender twins.

The demonic Pharaonic dynasty was abolished after the suicide of Queen Cleopatra and Marcus Antonius. Emperor Augustus annexed Egypt to the Roman Empire, but in reality Roma was annexed to Egypt because that was the end of the Roman Republic and the rise of the 4th Universal Empire.


The not so happy Serapis was
the Greek counterpart of "Hapy."
 

Serapis was the Greek counterpart of the Egyptian "Hapi."

To show a pregnant man with female breasts was anathema to the Greeks, so they gave him long hair instead.

Around the time of Emperor Jesus Constantine, images and statues of the hybrid Jesus with long hair began to appear!

Jesus with long hair.

There were no images or statues of the Messiah for the first 3 centuries of Christianity. The sea change came about with the conquest of the Roman Empire by Jesus Constantine and his mother Helena.

Saints Martin and William refused to call the "bride of Christ" after a pagan pigsty goddess!!

The congregation of Christ is called the bride of Christ, or the Lamb's wife:

Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the last seven plagues came to me and talked with me, saying, “Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife” (Apocalypse 21:9).

The bride of Christ is the Holy City or New Jerusalem:

And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me that  great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from Elohim (Apocalypse 21:10).

Erasmus of Rotterdam was the foremost Greek scholar of the Renaissance. He published a Latin translation of the Greek New Covenant, and everywhere the word ekklesia was found he translated it as CONGREGATION. His Greek New Covenant was the basis for Saint Martin Luther's and Saint William Tyndale's translation.


Saint Martin Luther
(1483–1546).
 
Saint Martin Luther was the king of Bible translators. He was an expert in Hebrew and Greek and he made Moses and the Prophets speak German.

He used the German Gemeinde or congregation of Israel in the Old Covenant, and he used the SAME WORD in the New Covenant.

For translating the Bible from Hebrew and Greek, Sir Thomas More called Saint William Tyndale a "hell hound of the devil who discharged blasphemies out of his brutish beastly mouth."

 

 
Saint William Tyndale
(14941536).

Tyndale used congregation instead of church, repent instead of do penance, and presbyter instead of priest:

But I say unto thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my congregation And the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it (Saint Matthew 16:18, Tyndale 1536 translation).

When More saw a copy of the Tyndale's New Covenant translation, he knew right away that it would mean the downfall of the Babylonian system in his country.

That is why he put a million dollar contract on the life of the Saint, and he was eventually strangled and burned at the stake before he could finish translating the entire Bible.

Without a doubt it is time for the Church of Roma to be gone with the wind Daniel 2:35).
