The "Church" of Rome Unmasked at Last!!

A false word, like a "false" "weight" is "an abomination to the Lord" (Prov. 11:1).

The assemblies of Diana of the Ephesians were called "ekklesias."

In the Greek language, the assemblies of Diana of the Ephesians were called ekklesias, which is translated into English as "churches."

"So that not only this our craft is in danger to be set at nought; but also that the temple of the great goddess Diana should be despised, and her magnificence should be destroyed, whom all Asia and the world worshippeth" (Acts 19:27).   "For ye have brought hither these men, which are neither robbers of churches (ekklesias), nor yet blasphemers of your goddess." (Acts 19:37). 
"Some therefore cried one thing, and some another for the ASSEMBLY (ekklesia) was confused; and the more part knew not why they were come together" (Acts 19:32).   "But if ye inquire any thing concerning other matters, it shall be determined in a lawful ASSEMBLY  (ekklesia)" (Acts 19:39).

Another monument to the power of the Risen Christ....The temple of Diana of the Ephesians in Turkey was one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world, but nothing remains today . . . except ruins....However, her ekklesias or churches have found their way into most translations of the Bible.

The New Testament of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ was written in Greek

The records of the birth, life, death and Resurrection of the Son of God were written in Greek —the language of the 3rd universal empire. The history of the early Christians and all the translations of the New Testament into the languages of the ancient world were made from the Greek language. In the Greek tongue, an ASSEMBLY or group of people was called an ekklesia:

" . . .that the Greek word, meaning etymologically 'the body of the ekklesia or select counsellors' was the name given by Solon to the public formal assembly of the Athenian people, and hence to the similar public assemblies of other free Greek cities" (Oxford English Dictionary).

The word ekklesia meant an assembly of pagan Greeks meeting to discuss their false gods. In the Book of Acts chapter 19, it is used to describe the meeting places of the worshippers of Diana of the Ephesians.

The Latin word for God's people was CONGREGATION!!

In the Hebrew OLD Testament, the name for God's people was QAHAL. The Latin equivalent was CONGREGATION. In the pre-Jerome Latin Bible, which was translated from Greek into Latin around 150 A.D., and called the Italic version, QAHAL is translated as CONGREGATION. This is the CORRECT translation. JEHOVAH's people were called His CONGREGATION over 300 times in the Latin Old Testament. His CONGREGATION consisted mostly of Jews and salvation was by RACE.

Jesus is the Son of God or the JEHOVAH of the Old Testament. He did not come to build a "CHURCH" or even to start a new CONGREGATION. He came to open the CONGREGATION to ALL THE WORLD so that salvation would be by GRACE . . . and not by RACE....Jesus said to His disciples:

"And other sheep I have, which are not of this (Israel) fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be ONE fold, and ONE shepherd" (John 10:16).

St. Peter confessed that Jesus was JEHOVAH!!

In the Old Testament; when the Son of God, or the Angel of the Lord appeared to the Jews, he was WORSHIPPED as God or JEHOVAH:

"When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?
And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.
He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church (ekklesia); and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it" (Matthew 16:13-18).

In the English Bible, the word CHURCH was substituted for CONGREGATION. This is the CORRECT and only translation of the Greek word ekklesia.

Latin is the father of the Spanish, French, Portuguese and Italian languages, but they still retain the CORRUPT word ekklesia when describing the New Testament congregation of Christ.

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 FINAL AUTHORITY on word meanings: 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).

The Egyptian goddess Isis was the precursor of Circe, Diana and Cybele!!

About 100 years before the birth of Moses (1613 B.C.), Egypt became a world superpower and the most important and influential country in the world. The worship of the Egyptian trinity: Isis, Horus and Seth spread to the entire world. Pyramids and obelisks built on the Egyptian model are found everywhere. The ancient Mayans and Aztecs in the New World had pyramids copied from ancient Egypt.

CIRCE was a Greek goddess who turned men into PIGS!!

Semiramis was called Isis in Egypt. According to Homer, Circe was a witch who turned men into PIGS:

"CIRCE: In Greek and Latin mythology the name of an enchantress who dwelt on the island of Aea, and transformed all who drank of her cup into SWINE; often used allusively"(Oxford English Dictionary).

Most of the ancient world was familiar with the Greek Odyssey written by Homer. Anybody who read the New Testament could see immediately that the woman described in the book was none other than CIRCE— the filthy witch who turned men into PIGS.

"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 "
(Revelation 17:3-5).

Circe and her menagerie of wild animals!!

According to the Odyssey, Odysseus (Ulysses) and his men stopped at Circe's island and he sent his soldiers to visit her house. The island was filled with wild animals—wolves and lions—which she tamed by her enchantments:

"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 Ulysses'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:

"Then Mercury went back to high Olympus passing over the wooded island; but I fared onward to the house of Circe, and my heart was clouded with care as I walked along. When I got to the gates I stood there and called the goddess, and as soon as she heard me she came down, opened the door, and asked me to come in; so I followed her—much troubled in my mind. She set me on a richly decorated seat inlaid with silver, there was a footstool also under my feet, and she mixed a mess in a golden goblet for me to drink; but she drugged it, for she meant me mischief. When she had given it me, and I had drunk it without its charming me, she struck me with her wand. 'There now,' she cried, 'be off to the pigsty, and make your lair with the rest of them'" (The Odyssey, Book 10, 210).

Diana of the Ephesians was another name for CIRCE!!

Ephesus was the idol making capital of the world, and the Vatican and Mecca of the ancient world. It was home to the MOTHER of god demon who ruled the world under Satan:

"So that not only this our craft is in danger to be set at nought; but also that the temple of the great goddess Diana should be despised, and her magnificence should be destroyed, whom all Asia and the world worshippeth"(Acts 19:27).

Temple of Diana (Artemis) at Ephesus was one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world.

Diana of the Ephesians was another name for Circe. This MOTHER OF GOD demon was also called Isthar, Astarte, Isis, Artemis, Aphrodite, Medusa, Demeter, Venus, Kali, Coatlicue etc., etc.

The World Wide Worship of the "mother" of god!!

At the Tower of Babel, Satan created a universal false religion based on the worship of the MOTHER of god as a SUBSTITUTE for the worship of the SON of God or JEHOVAH.

Satan used NIMROD, and his queen Semiramis, to introduce this false religion to the world.

According to the Jewish historian Josephus, Nimrod was punished for his rebellion by Shem, one of the sons of Noah. He cut Nimrod's body into many pieces and sent it to the surrounding people as a warning against idolatry.

After his death, his wife had a baby, and she claimed that he had been miraculously conceived and that Nimrod was reborn in the person of her son. She called this son, Tammuz.

Semiramis became the mother goddess or queen of heaven and statues of her holding her "divine" son began to appear everywhere. Semiramis was called Isis in Egypt:

Japan is unique because the goddess was always associated with the MOON. The Japanese Imperial family claimed descent from this goddess.

The mother goddess was a FILTHY fertility cult!!

Satan—the father of paganism—saw similarities between a BULL'S HORNS and the female reproductive organs. All the symbols of paganism had a hidden meaning known only to the initiated. Diana was served by thousands of emasculated priests.

St. Paul preached the Risen Christ to the pagans at Ephesus

Jesus the Son of God sent St. Paul to destroy this deadly worldwide Satanic counterfeit at its headquarters in Ephesus.

It was the image making capital of the world and Paul was hurting the business of the idol makers by preaching "there be no gods that are made with hands" (Acts 19:26).

"Some therefore cried one thing, and some another for the ASSEMBLY (ekklesia) was confused; and the more part knew not why they were come together" (Acts 19:32).

"But if ye inquire any thing concerning other matters, it shall be determined in a lawful ASSEMBLY (ekklesia)" (Acts 19:39).

"And when he had thus spoken, he dismissed the ASSEMBLY (ekklesia)"(Acts 19:41).

St. Paul remained 3 whole years preaching and teaching at Ephesus, because he know that the GREAT APOSTASY would be centered in that city, and that the MOTHER goddess Circe, Cybele or Diana would be substituted for CHRIST. St. Paul told the Ephesian congregation:

"Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the congregation of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.
Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears"
(Acts 20:28-31).

CIRCE or CYBELE was substituted for CHRIST!!

Now we will see how Satan substituted the filthy pigsty goddess Circe or Cybele for the King of Kings. Around 325 A.D. a new "jesus' began to appear with long hair and effeminate features.

This is the Roman Catholic effeminate "jesus" with LONG hair seen in art and movies.

At the time of Pope Constantine, a new effeminate "jesus" began to appear with long hair.

This was not the Jesus of the Bible who defeated Satan and ALL the hosts of hell.

The REAL Jesus of the Bible did not have long hair. St. Paul said that it was a SHAME for a man to have long hair:

"Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?" (I Cor. 11:14).

St. John, in the book of Revelation, describes a destroying army of the demons of hell and they ALL have LONG hair:

"And they (demons) had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions" (Rev. 9:8).

Satan, through his Circe of Rome, seeks to turn all men into PIGS!!

Changing a man into a woman goes back to ancient Egypt. Egyptian gods and goddesses were BISEXUAL perverts:

Egyptian god "Hapi" (male) with the breasts of a women.

Serapis was the Greek version of Hapi. To show a man with female breasts was anathema to the Greeks so they gave him long hair instead.

The Reformers refused to call Christ's "holy people" after a pagan pigsty goddess!!

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

Saint Martin Luther was the prince of Bible translators. He was an expert in Hebrew and Greek and made Moses speak German.

Saint Martin Luther was the prince of Bible translators. He was an expert in Hebrew and Greek and made Moses speak German.

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

 

Saint William Tyndale refused to call Christ's holy people after a pagan goddess. He used the Latin word CONGREGATION everywhere the Greek word ekklesia appeared in the Greek New Testament. It cost him his life to make the plowboy know more of Scripture than the "Doctor of Divinity."

Editor's Note

Even when Paul and Barnabas were preaching the gospel to the pagans; the pagans were comparing them to their false gods:

"And when the people saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voices, saying in the speech of Lycaonia, The gods are come down to us in the likeness of men.And they called Barnabas, Jupiter; and Paul, Mercurius, because he was the chief speaker.
Then the priest of Jupiter, which was before their city, brought oxen and garlands unto the gates, and would have done sacrifice with the people" (Acts 14:11-13).
