and Times of Giuseppe Garibaldi.
Giuseppe Garibaldi (July 4, 1807 to

entire history of the world!!

General Garibaldi landed in Sicily with his famous 1,000 volunteers
determined to march on Rome and liberate the City. After
a big battle on the Volturno River, he held plebiscites in Sicily
and Naples, and then gave the whole of southern Italy to Cavour,
proclaiming Victor Emmanuel as king of a united nation. He returned
to the island of Caprera, which then remained his permanent

he led another attempt to liberate Rome also without success.
Garibaldi was like a caged lion on the island of Caprera and
longed day and night to liberate his land from the roaring lion
in the Vatican.

securing the City and Garibaldi a prisoner on the island of
Caprera. In July 1870, he actually had himself declared INFALLIBLE.
lightning, disaster struck. France and Prussia went to war and
the French garrison had to be withdrawn. The Italians rushed
into the City and the fall of the Papacy was complete.
Prophet said that the fall of the Papacy would be without
hand or without human assistance. (Daniel 8:25).
Fall of the Papal States was a GREAT fulfillment of Bible Prophecy!!
In the book of
Daniel chapter 7, God showed Daniel the entire history of the Papacy
right down to the end of time. The fourth beast Empire Rome would
be divided up into 10 kingdoms or horns and then another kingdom or
"little horn" would arise in their midst.
horn" was the Papal States or Papal Dynasty, the Man of Sin
of St. Paul's Epistles and the Antichrist of the Apostle
John. This little horn would have a mouth speaking great things, would
make war with the saints and wear them out, would change times and
seasons etc., etc. He would have eyes like the eyes
of a man and a look more stout than his fellows. That is
why the Vatican is called the See of Rome.
In 606 A.D., the
Eastern Emperor Phocas conferred upon the bishop of Rome the title:
universal Bishop. If we use the famous year for a day interpretation
which all the great Protestant expositors used, the 1260 years
bring us down to 1866. So the "little horn" was about to
lose his dominion at this momentous time. God had already prepared
the soldier/patriot that He would use to fulfill this great prophecy.
His name was Giuseppe Garibaldi, the humble son of a fisherman!!

to Benito Mussolini, the beast that was slain came to life
again. From that time onwards most of the nations of the
world started to recognize the Vatican and send Ambassadors
to its headquarters including the U.S. in 1984:
. . which had the wound by a sword . . . whose
deadly wound was healed . . . And all that dwell upon
the earth shall worship him, whose names are not
written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the
foundation of the world" (Rev. chapter 13).
resent best-selling book: Hitler's Pope: the Secret History of Pius XII,
by John Cornwell says that the main goal of the Vatican since 1870
was to get back the Papal States. The German Kaiser had a secret agreement
with Rome that in the event of a German victory in WW I, he would
give back the land which they claimed was stolen by the Republicans.
Hitler, an Austrian, promised them the same deal if he was victorious.
That is why Pius XII was silent about the Holocaust. German troops
invaded Italy in 1943 —the first foreign soldiers since 1870—
and had Hitler been victorious he would have handed back the Papal
States. The Italians fought on Hitler's side but the Pope planned
to double-cross them and divide up the country once again!!
is amazing that this great hero's life was never filmed by Hollywood....It
is not strange at all when we realize that Hollywood has always
been run by the greatest enemies of Italian unity, the Jesuits.
City State must be abolished....It is a dagger aimed
at the heart of Italy. Garibaldi would never have consented to its
creation in 1929 by Fascist Mussolini. We know that Pope
and Pentagon are working together to divide Italy once again and turn
the clock back to the Dark Ages. Feeble men are still fighting
against the Almighty and trying to negate His Word!
