Sabbath Message by Wade Cox

Sabbath 12/10/26/120

Dear Friends,

This week we saw the end of the pagan year and the pagan New Year with its false worship, and the end of the Saturnalian revels. Many of our people do not understand that the so-called New Year of 1 January is a relatively recent addition to the English-speaking people. The New Year on 1 January actually represents the god Janus, who is the god of beginnings and endings of the Roman system, and this date and New Year system was introduced by the Roman Church system in the sixteenth century. God says to begin the year on 1 Abib, which is in March or early April each year. The new system was not introduced to England until the eighteenth century. The introduction of the Gregorian calendar was used to introduce the false worship of the 1 January system as well. The Roman System has been implementing the corruption of the Bible system for centuries and this was merely a late further disaster.

Scotland implemented the change differently than England, which was slow to adopt the change with Protestant Europe also resisting it. Russia, the Balkans and Greece did not adopt it until the twentieth century. The calendar was introduced as follows:

45BC – October 1599AD - Julian Calendar.
Beginning of the year was usually 25 March (from October 1582AD some parts of Europe, but not Scotland, used the Gregorian calendar and 1 January as the beginning of year).

1600AD – September 1751AD - Julian Calendar.
Beginning of the year was 1 January for Scotland from 1600. Ten days were added from 21 December with 1 January 1600 being the next date. This had the added bonus of deleting the pagan Christmas for that year in Scotland. Henry VIII had banned Christmas in England.
(25 March was still the beginning of the year in England and some other parts of Europe).

September 1752AD – present - Gregorian calendar.
Beginning of the year is 1 January for all the British Isles.
Ten days had been added to the European calendar but, by the time England had followed suit, there were twelve days that needed to be added. 2 September 1752 was followed by 14 September 1752 in England. I January 1753 was the New Year.

One might well ask the question, “Why is the Roman Church so bent on adopting pagan customs and traditions?” The explanation is given that by adopting the customs they give Christian symbolism to them and so undercut the pagans. On the face of it, this suggestion might have value. However, the pagan traditions are still there and just as strong. So what is the real explanation?

The real explanation is that the pagan system from Rome was faced with the popularity of Christianity as a social movement and it had to adopt it and adapt it or face a new social revolution within the fabric of the Roman state. The demons still had power and they adapted it in order to exercise their power using the Roman state vehicle. This system, which was prophesied to come into power right through the last days, had to exist and the demons had to remain in power using what spiritual force they could muster within the limitations imposed on them by God. People support the pagans secretly, if not openly, because most love to have sin in their lives.

The destruction of the Roman system is not a new unforseen fad due to its own sin and debauchery. The beast hates the whore and is prophesied to turn on the whore and destroy it. To this end, Satan gives his power to the beast (Rev. 13:2) to use it and, in the final phase in the last days, so that the beast can destroy the whore.
This sequence is prophesied in Revelation 17:

17 1 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great prostitute who is seated on many waters, 2 with whom the kings of the earth have committed sexual immorality, and with the wine of whose sexual immorality the dwellers on earth have become drunk.” 3 And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness, and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was full of blasphemous names, and it had seven heads and ten horns. 4 The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and jewels and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of her sexual immorality. 5 And on her forehead was written a name of mystery: “Babylon the great, mother of prostitutes and of earth’s abominations.” 6 And I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints, the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. When I saw her, I marveled greatly. 7 But the angel said to me, “Why do you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman, and of the beast with seven heads and ten horns that carries her. 8 The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is about to rise from the bottomless pit and go to destruction. And the dwellers on earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world will marvel to see the beast, because it was and is not and is to come. 9 This calls for a mind with wisdom: the seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman is seated; 10 they are also seven kings, five of whom have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come, and when he does come he must remain only a little while. 11 As for the beast that was and is not, it is an eighth but it belongs to the seven, and it goes to destruction. 12 And the ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have not yet received royal power, but they are to receive authority as kings for one hour, together with the beast. 13 These are of one mind and hand over their power and authority to the beast. 14 They will make war on the Lamb, and the Lamb will conquer them, for he is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those with him are called and chosen and faithful.” 15 And the angel said to me, “The waters that you saw, where the prostitute is seated, are peoples and multitudes and nations and languages. 16 And the ten horns that you saw, they and the beast will hate the prostitute. They will make her desolate and naked, and devour her flesh and burn her up with fire, 17 for God has put it into their hearts to carry out his purpose by being of one mind and handing over their royal power to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. 18 And the woman that you saw is the great city that has dominion over the kings of the earth.” (English Standard Version)

This beast referred to here that was, and is not, and is yet to come is the world order that was extant under Babylon and is to come and now is.

It will live only for a short time but it will do great damage in that time. It will turn on the religious system that preceded it and will destroy that system. Satan has given his power to the beast to accomplish that end because the whore of Revelation is only able to exist under the pretence of serving the Lamb, and yet it tries to speak as a dragon. It is fettered in some ways through its position as the whore. Only when free of those fetters can the dragon speak through its own order and that has not yet reached fruition.

In order to destroy the religious system of Revelation 17, a series of events was set in place long ago that would result in the total destruction of the false Christian system. These problems were introduced with the monastic orders in the twelfth century. These orders took over the Church with the Lateran Councils of that time. They removed the normal married clergy and deaconess system with the great abbey houses of families and replaced them with unnatural living and ultimately perversions.

To that end, there have been three great crimes exposed this century that will cause the beast to turn on the religious system.

1. The sexual abuse of the entire system by itself and culminating in the abuse of children within it will be used to draw attention to the system and marshall opinion against it.

2. The ruthless destruction of entire peoples in the Holocaust of the twentieth century will finally be exposed and harness more opinion against it.

3. Coupled with these two aspects we will now see a financial empire exposed that will more and more be used to prop up this dying edifice with amoral organisations that are accountable to no one and that act contrary to the interests of nations and social order. They will be seen to be so reprehensible and so unaccountable that nations will take action to limit their existence. The actions we saw against the Jesuits in the Americas of past centuries will pale into insignificance when these organisations are exposed.

The adversary is establishing the conditions within the structures that will ultimately bring about their downfall. He will also attack in this way the very principle on which Christianity is built, namely repentance and baptism.

People will become so nauseated with the behaviour of the clergy that they will refuse to accept the principles on which Christianity was established and the entire structure and power of the Holy Spirit.

In doing this, he also harnesses the logical inconsistency, emotionalism and irrationality of Pentecostalism.

In both organisations, the systems of the secret societies of lodges work to establish a control that will ensure their position and which will ultimately destroy them all because the demons work to destroy the whore. So also do the powers of the kings that give their power to the beast so that it may reign for a little while. Very responsible Roman Catholics within the system, and reporters and authors in contact with them, have alleged that John Paul I was killed precisely because he was going to rid the church system of some 100 odd freemasons within the church hierarchy, and that he was going to restore the original system free of corruption (see the book by David Yallop, In God’s Name). That system now appears to be in control. A glance at the health of John Paul II will give most thinking people cause for concern.

This week Jon Levy communicated with us. He is an attorney in California who is taking the case for the Holocaust victims against the Franciscan Order and others over the concentration camps in WWII, in what is now Croatia. I do not think I am breaking confidence in disclosing his comments to me. If so, I apologise to him but his comments are of importance to us all.

He had published a press release, which was issued under the title “Legal Christmas Card to the Vatican” which he had sent to us knowing our interest in the matter. The card was under cover of the summary.

The sexual abuse scandal that rocked the Catholic Church in 2003 will be viewed as a minor disturbance compared to the financial crisis about to break upon the Catholic Church in 2004.

The Body of the Text reads:

A Legal Christmas Card:
Vatican Facing Financial Landmines in 2004

Washington, DC: December 22, 2003 – The sexual abuse scandal that rocked the Catholic Church in 2003 will be viewed as a minor disturbance compared to the looming financial and legal crisis about to break upon the Catholic Church in 2004 according to California attorneys Tom Easton and Jonathan Levy. A trend which has started with a $70 million settlement in the Boston Archdiocese for sexual abuse victims will accelerate in 2004 according to the attorneys who represent Holocaust survivors suing the Vatican Bank and Franciscan Order for post Second World War money laundering of the proceeds of concentration camps and Nazi looting.

The Vatican faces a tough year in 2004 with continuing class action lawsuits filed by sexual abuse victims and ongoing revelations of Church sanctioned cover-ups. But according to Levy these actions are dwarfed by the little-known $750 million dollar racketeering lawsuit pending in a Mississippi court by five states seeking the return of hundreds of millions of dollars stolen by the criminal mastermind Martin Frankel with the help of the Vatican Bank and three top Vatican Cardinals including the Vatican Secretary of State and two former Papal Nuncios to the United States. “The Vatican has done a great job of hushing the case up since at least two of the Cardinals who conspired with Frankel to steal tens of billions of dollars from the US insurance industry are mentioned as future candidates for Pope.”

Added to the Vatican Bank’s misery is the murder case of Vatican financier Roberto Calvi over two decades ago which resurfaced earlier this year in Britain and Italy with new findings and arrests thanks to the stubborn persistence of Carlo Calvi, the murdered banker’s son. The Calvi assassination triggered a $250 million pay out by the Vatican in the 1980’s, new revelations of Vatican connected misdeeds promise to be equally punishing.

Finally, the Vatican faces a legal landmine that has been quietly wending its way through the federal court system since 1999. In November 1999, Ukrainian Holocaust survivors later joined by Serb and Jewish plaintiffs filed a class action lawsuit against the Vatican Bank, a Croatian right-wing political organization and the Franciscan Order, alleging complicity in the laundering of Nazi World War II loot including the proceeds of genocide from several Croatian run concentration camps where upwards of 500,000 Serbs, Roma and Jews were liquidated between 1941 and 1945

A Federal District Court dismissed the lawsuit earlier this year on grounds of political question ruling the claim was a matter for the executive not judicial branch of government. The case is being appealed to the San Francisco based Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals known for its controversial decisions. The appeal’s outcome is eagerly anticipated; a pending Holocaust case against Austria has been stayed by the Ninth Circuit court pending the resolution of the Vatican Bank appeal. Meanwhile, Easton and Levy consider their appeal brief a “Christmas card” for the Vatican.

In my correspondence with Jon Levy he said:

“As you know, the Vatican controls not just the semi private Vatican Bank (IOR-Institute for religious Works) but the APSA (Patrimony of the Apostolic See) their central bank and also has a Ministry of Economics. Add to this the financial instruments of the SMOM (Sovereign Order of the Knights of Malta), Opus Dei controlled banks, the massive insurance assets of the Knights of Columbus, plus the vast wealth of the various orders (Jesuit, Franciscan, Dominican, etc) with the hard assets of the Vatican itself and you have financial colossus.

Avro Manhattan exposed much of this decades ago but people apparently have forgotten. Show me a single Protestant, non denominational church, or Orthodox Church that controls even 1% of the Vatican wealth, of course no one can, the Vatican is "unique."

In this we all find cause for alarm. These systems have all been allowed to grow and become totally out of control so that they form the basis for action in the last days. The beast of the world political system will be used to turn on the religious structure and close it down by legislation.

The fall of the Roman Church will commence from the actions of individuals in political systems throughout the world that will demand the legal limitation of the Roman Church and its closure in the various countries of the world.

This week the papal representative to Central Africa was shot in Burundi. The government blamed the rebels and the rebels blamed the government. The fact is that neither cared and the Rwandan Tutsi hated them for the Holocaust they had instigated there and may well have helped either side achieve the matter.

The Holocaust in Europe was caused by the Trinitarian system as it did later in Rwanda. The Vatican assisted the movement of fascist war criminals from Europe, to Australia, and South America and then assisted them to take up sensitive positions in the systems of those countries. It seems a war criminal is all right provided he is on your side. The Serbs have just sent that message to the court at The Hague in their elections this month.

The “New Year” Fireworks message on the Sydney Harbour Bridge last year said “Peace.” They followed that claim with the Iraq war and everything else this year. As the ABC radio commentator Peter Thompson, and the newspaper cartoonists he was interviewing, said this morning: “This year they will add ‘And Quiet.’” However, there will be no peace.

The beast is growing like a black cloud on the horizon and in the background it is preparing to destroy the Trinitarian religious system. When will man turn to God and obey His Calendar and His Laws?
