Happy Reformation Day On October 31, 2015

2017 is the 500th anniversary of the greatest event since the Resurrection of Christ.
Get ready to celebrate NOW!!

As a tribute to Saint Martin Luther, all true Christians should pray that the Papacy will vanish and shrink by 2017.

Martin Luther became a MONK when he entered the Augustinian Order in 1505. At that time, most Latin Church members believed that the surest road to heaven was to enter a monastery or nunnery and spend your life doing penance....Penance was substituted for repentance by Jerome's corrupt Latin Vulgate Version.

The Reformation began on October 31, 1517, when German monk Saint Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the Castle Church door in Wittenberg, Germany.

In 1520, Saint Martin threw oceans of ink at the devil when he published his magnum opus entitled On the Babylonian Captivity of the Church.

“As a nail in a sure place”
“As a nail in a sure place”
(Isaiah 22:23).

Luther wrote that the Christian Congregation was taken captive by Rome (symbolized by Babylon) for the previous 1000 years. He reduced Rome's 7 sacraments to 2: baptism and the Lord Supper or Communion.

The book caused consternation at Rome . . . and Saint Martin was given 60 days to disown the book or face a fiery death at the stake!!

Henry VIII of England was also outraged by the book.

At that time his main concern was producing a male heir to the throne because he knew that women ruling over men was a reversal of the divine order of the universe.

King Henry could not offer his sword to defend the Papacy so he decided to offer his pen....Henry was the last person in the world to write a book about the Bible and theology because he committed INCEST by marrying his dead brother's wife:

Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy brother's wife: because it is the nakedness of thy brother (Leviticus 18:16, Douay Rheims Version).

The Hebrew idiom "to look upon nakedness" or "uncover nakedness" means to make love to or have sex with a person.

No one is to approach any close relative to have sexual relations. I am JEHOVAH (Leviticus 18:6).

King Henry's oldest son Arthur–the Prince of Wales–was married to Catherine of Aragon. Arthur died in 1501, and King Henry VII applied to Pope Alexander VI–the infamous Borgia–for a Papal dispensation so that his next oldest son Henry could marry his dead brother's wife.

After Portuguese Christopher Columbus arrived back in Spain in 1493, Pope Alexander VI donated the entire New World to Spain.

In 1502, Pope Alexander granted King Henry a "license to sin" or dispensation to committ incest.

For a price, Papal dispensations or "licenses to sin" were frequently granted to the crowned heads of Europe so incest or consanguinity produced physical and mental "royal" monstrosities.

Henry was the last person to write any book about any sacrament because he himself was living in sin!!

Desperately in need of a male heir, he finally dumped Catherine and married Saint Anne Boleyn!!

Henry might have held the pen but the book was the work of Sir Thomas More. Henry had absolutely no literary talent whatsoever. His greatest contribution to the Reformation was the selection of the English Esther–Saint Anne Boleyn–as his wife!!

Sir Thomas Morepatron "saint" of lawyerswas the author of Defence of the Seven Sacraments.

As the supposed author, Henry was given the pompous title: "Defender of the Faith" by Pope Leo X.

That flattering title is still borne by British sovereigns.

Henry came to bitterly regret ever lending his name to that tome. His request for a divorce was denied by Rome only because Spanish soldiers occupied Rome and held the Pope captive.

Not only did Henry fail to get a divorce from Rome but Luther made him look like an ass when he wrote a refutation of the book. Luther believed that the book was the work of Henry . . . with the help of Cardinal Wolsey and Archbishop Edward Lee . . . whom he called Jannes and Jambres. Here is a small sample of his polemic:

But not to seem to treat with contempt the name of so great a King, and to answer a fool according to his folly, I will show his foolishness in a short treatise as far as my other occupations permit. At another time I will handle more fully and with proper seriousness the King's blasphemies and cursings. Nor does the fact that scarcely any one believes that this is the King's own book move me in the least degree. I am willing to grant that it is the King's, as its title declares it is, and to turn my attack against the fool-King, who has allowed the rascally sophists to use his name and fill the whole book with so many lies and such venom that it has expressed more exactly than could any picture that Lee, or the counterpart of that Lee [Wolsey]–the frozen freezing slimy sophist, the hog who ís of the kind that his fat Thomíst fellows love to have him in their company–lest the English Pharaoh should be without the support of a Jannes and a Jambres. (Luther, Contra Henricum, p. 4).

Luther later regretted some of the harsh language when Henry ceased being a fool and starting listening to the advice of the English Esther–Saint Anne Boleyn....Regretfully, the Papal Stuart dynasty started using that pompous title again around 1600:

Let me not, I pray you, accept any man's person, neither let me give flattering titles unto man. For I know not to give flattering titles; in so doing my Maker would soon take me away (Job 32:21-22).

Even the mighty Roman Emperors did not use flattering titles but simply called themselves PRINCEPS (First Citizen). Evolution works in reverse in the British Empire.

All hell mobilized to prevent the rebuilding of the walls of Jerusalem!!

Satan cancelled all leave for his demons and he went into panic mode after the publication of Luther's now famous tome. If there is one person in Scripture who epitomized and foreshadowed the ministry of Saint Martin Luther it was the Prophet Nehemiah:

But it came to pass, that when Sanballat, and Tobiah, and the Arabians, and the Ammonites, and the Ashdodites, heard that the walls of Jerusalem were made up, and that the breaches began to be stopped, then they were very angry (Nehemiah 4:7).

From the end of the Babylonian Captivity of the Jews in 457 BC, it took about 50 years for Israel to be reestablished as a nation, with only 2 tribes, Judah and Benjamin, returning from Babylon.

Luther was a fearless Reformer, a master teacher, a prolific author, and a superb expounder of the Word. He was the perfect man that Providence chose to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem after the 1000-year Babylonian Captivity.

After the publication of On the Babylonian Captivity of the Church, being a Pope was a very, very hazardous occupation, as the Cup of Borgia was always filled to the brim.

During his 30-plus years as a fearless Reformer, Saint Martin had to contend with 4 Popes.

Emperor Charles V was a bitter rival of the Terrible Turks but that did not stop him from attempting to send a vast Turkish army to conquer Germany. "Rabbi" Josel financed the Turkish army as he bled Germany dry financially with ruinous usury.

Vienna was the key to the conquest of Germany, and Muslim possession of that city would open the way to the subjugation of both Austria and Germany.

The spring and summer of 1529 saw the worst torrential downpours in the history of Europe.

The incessant rain delayed the Muslim army, and the roads became impassable, so the massive siege cannon had to be abandoned.

Thanks to the prayers of Saint Martin Luther, Suleiman's attempted invasion of Germany was a washout!!

Our great JEHOVAH came to the help of his servant Saint Martin Luther, by opening the windows of heaven, and causing an incessant rain to slow the progress of the invading Muslims. The entire campaign was a washout and the Turks returned to Constantinople a defeated host.

Israel was reborn in the New World wilderness in 1620

With the great success of the Reformation in Germany, a young English priest named William Tyndale decided to follow the example of Saint Martin Luther and liberate his country from Rome.

Saint William Tyndale is called the Father of the English Bible.

He was the first to translate from Hebrew and Greek to English.

Under Henry's regime, he could find no safe place in England to translate the Scriptures.

Around 1523, Saint William Tyndale first disclosed his plans to follow the example of Saint Martin Luther in Germany and translate the Bible into the language of the common people:

It was not long after, but Master Tyndale happened to be in the company of a certain divine, recounted for a learned man, and, in communing and disputing with him, he drave him to that issue, that the said great doctor burst out into these blasphemous words, and said, “We were better to be without God’s laws than the pope’s,” Master Tyndale, hearing this, full of godly zeal, and not bearing that blasphemous saying, replied again, and said, “I defy the pope, and all his laws,” and further added, "that if God spared him life, ere many years he would cause a boy that driveth the plough, to know more of the Scripture than he did." (Foxe, Acts & Monuments, vol. 5, p. 207).

That remark got him into BIG trouble with Wolsey and More so he found no safe place in England to do his translating work.

After a bitter struggle that lasted 100 years, the tiny remnant of Israel left England in July 1620, determined to plant the Tabernacle of David in the New World wilderness:

And to the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent (Revelation 12:14).

Jesuit King James I bribed the captain of the Mayflower to drop them off 400 miles north of their intended destination. He "prayed" that the wilderness would swallow them up and he would be rid of "religious malcontents" as he called them.

The reestablishment of Israel in the New World could have happened during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, but her Babylonian conjurer named John Dee made sure that did not happen....Satan could delay . . . but not prevent the rebirth of Israel.

In 1620, a little ship called the Mayflower carried 102 Christians from the corrupt old world to the New World.

As with Noah and his family, it was to be a new beginning for the human race.

This event is remembered yearly in November at the holiday called Thanksgiving.

The little Tabernacle of David in the wilderness was not safe even 3,000 miles from Europe. The Jesuits and the Babylonian "Jews" followed them and set up spying stations in Newport, Rhode Island, New York City, and Charleston, South Carolina.

None of the puny efforts of lying and corrupt men could foil the plans of the Almighty or prevent the reestablishment of Israel:

After this I will return and will rebuild the tabernacle of David which has fallen down; I will rebuild its ruins, and I will set it up; so that the rest of mankind may seek JEHOVAH, even all the nations who are called by my name (Acts 15:16-17).

It can be said without any contradiction that Saint Martin Luther is the true founder of the United States of Israel!!
