Jesuit order established

Jesuit order established

In Rome, the Society of Jesus—a Roman Catholic missionary organization—receives its charter from Pope Paul III. The Jesuit order played an important role in the Counter-Reformation and eventually succeeded in converting millions around the world to Catholicism.

The Jesuit movement was founded by Ignatius de Loyola, a Spanish soldier turned priest, in August 1534. The first Jesuits–Ignatius and six of his students–took vows of poverty and chastity and made plans to work for the conversion of Muslims. If travel to the Holy Land was not possible, they vowed to offer themselves to the pope for apostolic work. Unable to travel to Jerusalem because of the Turkish wars, they went to Rome instead to meet with the pope and request permission to form a new religious order. In September 1540, Pope Paul III approved Ignatius’ outline of the Society of Jesus, and the Jesuit order was born.

Under Ignatius’ charismatic leadership, the Society of Jesus grew quickly. Jesuit missionaries played a leading role in the Counter-Reformation and won back many of the European faithful who had been lost to Protestantism. In Ignatius’ lifetime, Jesuits were also dispatched to India, Brazil, the Congo region, and Ethiopia. Education was of utmost importance to the Jesuits, and in Rome Ignatius founded the Roman College (later called the Gregorian University) and the Germanicum, a school for German priests. The Jesuits also ran several charitable organizations, such as one for former prostitutes and one for converted Jews. When Ignatius de Loyola died in July 1556, there were more than 1,000 Jesuit priests.

During the next century, the Jesuits set up ministries around the globe. The “Black-Robes,” as they were known in Native America, often preceded other Europeans in their infiltration of foreign lands and societies. The life of a Jesuit was one of immense risk, and thousands of priests were persecuted or killed by foreign authorities hostile to their mission of conversion. However, in some nations, such as India and China, the Jesuits were welcomed as men of wisdom and science.

With the rise of nationalism in the 18th century, most European countries suppressed the Jesuits, and in 1773 Pope Clement XIV dissolved the order under pressure from the Bourbon monarchs. However, in 1814, Pope Pius VII gave in to popular demand and reestablished the Jesuits as an order, and they continue their missionary work to this day. Ignatius de Loyola was canonized a Catholic saint in 1622.


Priests cannot be charged for old abuse despite new Iowa law

An order of Catholic priests has pledged $100 million in reparations to the descendants of people whom they owned as slaves during the early decades of the American republic.

The announcement by leaders of the Jesuit Conference of Canada and the United States is one of the largest initiatives of its kind by any institution, and the largest thus far by the church, the New York Times reported on Monday.

The order has committed to raising the full sum in three to five years, with $15 million deposited in a trust already, reported the Guardian.

All of the money raised by the Jesuits will eventually go to the newly created Descendants Truth & Reconciliation Foundation, which was established in partnership with a group of descendants.

The Rev. Timothy P. Kesicki, president of the Jesuit Conference of Canada and the United States, told the Times that this is the beginning of “a very serious process of truth and reconciliation.”

Kesicki called the history of Jesuit slaveholdings “shameful,” adding that it’s “been taken off the dusty shelf, and it can never be put back.”

For more than a century, Jesuits used and sold slave labor to finance the construction and day-to-day operations of churches and schools, notably including Georgetown University — where two Jesuit priests, who presided over the university in 1838, sold 272 enslaved men, women and children to Louisiana plantation owners in order to keep the school afloat.

The university, which committed last year to raising an annual sum of $400,000 to benefit the descendants of enslaved people after pressure from students, has already contributed $1 million to the reparations foundation, and holds a seat on the board.

These efforts reflect a growing reparations movement during the past several years among many faith institutions, which have been at the forefront of creating reparations funds and scholarship initiatives to atone for their ties to slavery.

When descendants initially learned about the Jesuits’ history of slaveholding, a group called on the order to raise $1 billion in reparations.

Although the pledge falls short of the requested $1 billion, the foundation’s acting president, Joseph M. Stewart — whose ancestors were among the 272 sold by Georgetown — told the Times that that sum is still the foundation’s “long-term goal” and that descendants “now have a pathway forward that has not been traveled before.”


10 FACTS You Must Know About The Jesuits!

The Superior General of the Society of Jesus is the official title of the leader of the Roman Catholic religious order, the Jesuits. He is generally addressed as Father General. The position sometimes carries the derogatory nickname of the Black Pope. The current Superior General is the Reverend Father Adolfo Nicolás.

THE JESUITS - 10 FACTS

&ldquoBeware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves .&rdquo &ndash Yahushua in Matthew 7:15 (NKJV)

&ldquoWe came in like lambs and will rule like wolves .&rdquo - Francesco Borgia, Third Jesuit Superior General.

The Society of Jesus, more commonly referred to as the Jesuits, are the armed militia of the Roman Catholic Church. They were sanctioned in 1540 by Pope Paul III with one mandate: to defeat Protestantism and regain worldwide Papal rule. To achieve this monumental task, they employ ever-adapting methods of pseudo-education, social programs, infiltration, and all wickedness that could possibly be conceived. Needless to say, they are achieving great success in their mission, which is climaxing with the present pope, Pope Francis, i.e. the Eighth and last Pope of Revelation 17, who held some of the highest positions in Argentina, including Provincial Superior in the Society of Jesus and Archbishop of Buenos Aires. He was made a cardinal by Pope John Paul II.

Today most of the world is oblivious as to how Jesuits operate, from their inception to this very day. Now more than ever, World&rsquos Last Chance believes it is exceedingly important to bring up the following historical facts about this evil society, to expose the wicked nature of this truly malevolent order.

Pope Clement XIV abolished the Jesuits as a society in 1773:

It did not take long for the 18 th Century Catholic nations to get tired of the meddling of the Jesuits into their national affairs. They were so infuriated against the Jesuits that they demanded the Roman Catholic Church abolish them once and for all. Sufficient political pressure was brought to bear on Pope Clement XIII. However, he passed away before he could do anything about it. The task of abolishing the Society of Jesus then fell on his successor, Clement XIV. As Clement XIV signed the decree abolishing the Jesuit Order he said, &ldquoI have signed my death warrant,&hellip&rdquo Within nine months he was dead. [Many contemporaries considered his death a case of poisoning, and suspected the Jesuits were responsible].

No other entity on Earth was expelled and suppressed by Catholic and non-Catholic countries as the Jesuits:

Obviously the Jesuits were not expelled from many nations (even Catholic nations) because of their educational or charity work. They were expelled for engaging in and carrying out subversive political plots against humanity to advance their own cause.

"Between 1555 and 1931 the Society of Jesus [i.e., the Jesuit Order] was expelled from at least 83 countries, city states and cities, for engaging in political intrigue and subversion plots against the welfare of the State, according to the records of a Jesuit priest of repute [i.e., Thomas J. Campbell]. Practically every instance of expulsion was for political intrigue, political infiltration, political subversion, and inciting to political insurrection."

The Jesuits are known for their deception, spying, infiltration, assassination, and revolution. They worked deep into the political field and plotted through politics throughout the world countries.

Source: "The Babington Plot", by J.E.C. Shepherd, p.12

When the Jesuits are expelled from a country, they simply change strategies and return to the country they were expelled from under a new disguise. The following sums up their operational strategy:

&ldquoWe came in like lambs and will rule like wolves. We shall be expelled like dogs and return like eagles.&rdquo

Hitler modeled his dreaded SS army and party after the organizational structure of the Jesuits and the Roman Catholic Church:

"&hellipthe SS organization had been constituted according to the principles of the Jesuit Order."

Source: "The Secret History of the Jesuits," by Edmond Paris, p. 164

Walter Schellenberg, former chief of Nazi counter-espionage made this statement: "The S.S. organization had been constituted by Himmler [Heinrich Himmler, leading member of the Nazi party] according to the principles of the Jesuit Order. Their regulations and the Spiritual Exercises prescribed by Ignatius of Loyola were the model Himmler tried to copy exactly. Himmler's title as supreme chief of the S.S. was to be the equivalent of the Jesuits' 'General' and the whole structure was a close imitation of the Catholic Church's hierarchical order." "The Secret History of the Jesuits," by Edmond Paris, p. 164

Above all I have learned from the Jesuits. And so did Lenin too, "far as I recall. The world has never known anything quite so splendid as the hierarchical structure of the Catholic Church. There were quite a few things I simply appropriated from the Jesuits for the use of the Party.

Source: Manfred Barthel, "The Jesuits: History and Legend of the Society of Jesus (New York, 1984), Adolf Hitler, p.266.

"I learned much from the Order of the Jesuits", said Hitler. "Until now, there has never been anything more grandiose, on the earth, than the hierarchical organization of the Catholic Church. I transferred much of this organization into my own party. I am going to let you in on a secret. I am founding an Order. In my "Burgs" of the Order, we will raise up a youth which will make the world tremble. Hitler then stopped, saying that he couldn't say any more..

Signing the concordat is Cardinal Pacelli (later to become Pope Pius XII). By 1933 he was the Vatican Secretary of State. Second from left is Franz von Papen, a sinister Nazi and devout Roman Catholic who was Hitler's ace diplomat and the Vatican's agent in helping to bring Hitler to power. Standing at the far right can be seen the little-known Vatican prelate, Montini, later to become Pope Paul VI.

For . . . it was the Society of Jesus which perfected the famous Pan-German programme as laid out in this book, and the Fuhrer endorsed it."

Franz von Papen, another powerful Nazi, who was instrumental in setting up the concordat between Germany and the Vatican had this to say: "The Third Reich is the first world power which not only acknowledges but also puts into practice the high principles of the papacy."

Fact #4

Over the last 400 years the Jesuits have succeeded in establishing the largest worldwide network of schools and universities.

These prominent schools and universities, have produced many well known alumni. Thus, the Jesuits have been able to shape and mould the thinking of many famous world leaders, and produce generations of political and religious leaders who were favorable to the Roman Catholic Church, and her doctrinal agenda.

The renowned British preacher, Charles Haddon Spurgeon, once warned about the church ministers who are graduating from these universities that &ldquo&hellip they keep back a portion of the gospel &hellip having studied in the devil&rsquos new Jesuitical college.&rdquo
Source: Charles H. Spurgeon &ldquoA Solemn Warning for All Churches,&rdquo Sermon No. 68

Agents of the Jesuitshave been responsible for assassinating many heads of State over the centuries:

Heads of states were assassinated by the Jesuits, when they attempt to suppress the influence and meddling of the Jesuits in their national affairs. Of heads of states that are known to have been assassinated by Jesuits we mention for example: William of Orange, Kings Henry III and Henry IV of France, Czars Alexander I and Alexander II of Russia, President Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy, and Mexican President Benito Pablo Juarez.

Abraham Lincoln was fully aware of the evil nature of the Jesuits. He stated, &ldquo. it is not against the Americans of the South, alone, I am fighting. It is more against the Pope of Rome, his perfidious Jesuits and their blind and blood-thirsty slaves that we have to defend ourselves.&rdquo

Source: Fifty Years in the Church of Rome, by Charles Chiniquy. p. 496

&ldquoIt would seem that the Jesuits had had it in mind, from the beginning of the war [the American Civil War of 1861-1865], to find an occasion for the taking off [i.e., the assassination] of Mr. [Abraham] Lincoln.&rdquo

&ldquoIt is of faith that the Pope has the right of deposing heretical and rebel kings. Monarchs so deposed by the Pope are converted into notorious tyrants, and may be killed by the first who can reach them.
&ldquoIf the public cause cannot meet with its defense in the death of a tyrant, it is lawful for the first who arrives, to assassinate him.&rdquo

[Defensio Didei, Jesuit Suarez, Book VI. C 4, Nos. 13, 14]


[Donald] Freed remembers what apparently passes for polite conversation when men such as [William] Colby and [Ray] Cline get together. &ldquoIt was quite bizarre&rdquo Freed said, &ldquofor the subject they chose was, &lsquoWhen is it acceptable to assassinate a head of state?&rsquo Colby presented what he said was a theological and philosophically sound approach. &ldquoThe Catholic Church,&rdquo he said, &ldquohad long since wrestled with this question and had,&rdquo to Colby&rsquos mind, emerged with a sound concept: &ldquoIt is acceptable,&rdquo he said, &ldquoto assassinate a tyrant." [Donald Freed is a friend of the author, Mark Lane. He organized a conference at USC for the U.S. intelligence community and its critics to meet. In the panel were Lane, Ellsberg and John Gerassi, all critics. On the other side were William Colby, former DCI (Director of Central Intelligence from September 1973 to January 1976), David Atlee Phillips, and Ray Cline, former deputy DCI&rsquos.]

[Plausible Denial, Mark Lane, 1991, p. 85]

President John F. Kennedy was another victim of appalling Jesuit wickedness. Once he outwardly distanced himself from the Papal agenda and stood for more liberal ideals and human rights, he was considered, by their standards, a traitor to the Vatican and a &ldquotyrant&rdquo worthy of death.

This is an excerpt from &ldquoVatican Assassins&rdquo by Eric Jon Phelps:

Knowing that President Kennedy was not going to escalate the Vietnam War, the Intelligence Community began to prepare for his assassination. . . . Cardinal Spellman [Francis Spellman, Archbishop of New York from 1939-1967], through FDR, had arranged the release of &ldquoLucky&rdquo Luciano . . . Now the Cardinal needed a favor. If refused, Spellman could use the entire intelligence community which he had helped to organize, to eliminate any mob boss. If agreed to, new gambling centers would open up, Atlantic City in particular. Clearly, if the President [JFK] was removed, everybody would acquire more power and wealth, the intelligence community would become more absolute, and the Cardinal would be even more respected by his peers in Rome.

Later, in 1964, for the first time in history, the Pope of Rome set foot in Fourteenth Amendment America. Cardinal Spellman had performed well and was rewarded by a visit from his Master, fellow Cold Warrior and Vatican Ratline handler, Cardinal Montini, who was now Pope Paul VI. There is yet another reason for the removal of President Kennedy. He wanted to arm Israel. Loftus writes:

&ldquoIn September 1962 Kennedy decided to supply Israel with defensive ground-to-air missiles capable of stopping aircraft, but not the Egyptian offensive missiles. It was the first arms sale by the U.S. Government to Israel. Kennedy promised the Israelis that as soon as the 1964 election was over, he would break the CIA &lsquointo a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds&rsquo. With Kennedy&rsquos assassination in November 1963, the Israelis lost the best friend they had in the White House since Truman departed.&rdquo Source: The Secret War Against The Jews, John Loftus, 1994]

And why did the Vatican&rsquos Jesuits not want any arms sales to Israel at this time? Why did the Jesuit-controlled President Johnson turn his back as the Egyptian army moved up through the Sinai desert to prepare its assault on Israel in 1967? Because the attack upon Israel had to be provoked. That attack was provoked by the Jesuits&rsquo International Intelligence Community through Egypt falsely perceiving the weakness of the Israeli army and the supposed abandonment of Israel by the American Empire. The six-day war, engineered by Knight of Malta James Angleton, had one primary purpose: the taking of Jerusalem along with the Temple Mount. The apparent lack of military hardware on the part of Israel provoked the planned attack by Egypt. Therefore, Israel launched a preemptive strike and, in six days, the holy city was in the hands of Rome&rsquos Zionist government.

Had Kennedy armed Israel, the Egyptians would never have been emboldened to maneuver for war. With no provoked war, there would have been no Israeli attack. With no Israeli attack, Jerusalem would never have been taken by the Zionists, controlled by the Jesuits&rsquo Mossad. With Jerusalem in Arab hands, the Zionists could never rebuild Solomon&rsquos Temple&mdashunbeknown to them&mdashfor the Jesuits&rsquo &ldquoinfallible&rdquo Pope,

&ldquoWho opposeth and exalted himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped so he is God sitteth in the temple of God [Solomon&rsquos rebuilt temple], showing himself that he is God.&rdquo
-[II Thes 2:4]

It is safe to say that the Jesuit General, using the Pope with his most powerful Cardinal, [assassinated President Kennedy].

One might assume that this emotive painting would hang somewhere in Dallas, Texas or perhaps in the Smithsonian. And one would be wrong on both counts. This painting of President John F. Kennedy's gruesome assassination, by Mark Balma, hangs in the Vatican Cathedral of St. Paul. The painting is entitled &ldquoPietà&rdquo after Michelangelo&rsquos famous sculpture of Mary holding the body of the crucified Christ, which is also located at the Vatican. Isn&rsquot this a macabre way to &ldquocelebrate&rdquo the life of perhaps America&rsquos most beloved President? or is this rather an homage to the Jesuit agenda, serving as a stern warning/reminder to those willing to cross them?

The Jesuits today control all the powerful secret societies that are shaping the New World Order

&ldquoThe list of secret societies being controlled by the Jesuits today include: the Freemasonry, the Knights of Malta, the Bilderberg group, and the higher levels of the Knights of Columbus, and the highest levels of Opus Dei &ndash and all the subgroups that fall under these powerful entities.&rdquo

"There are still &hellip[men and women] about the country, who will tell you, with grim gravity that, if you trace up Masonry, through all its Orders, till you come to the grand tip-top, head Mason of the world, you will discover that the dread individual and the Chief of the Society of Jesus are one and the same person!"

If the above is true, than the example below would be a meeting of two of the most powerful men on Earth! The Head of the Jesuits and the Pope, who is also a Jesuit.

Father General Nicolás [Superior General of the Society of Jesus/Jesuits] meets with Pope Francis and wrote of his experience.

&ldquoAt the personal invitation of the Pope Francis I went to the Santa Marta House. . . He was at the entrance and received me with the usual Jesuit embrace. We had a few pictures taken, at his request, and at my apologies for not keeping protocol he insisted that I treat him like any other Jesuit at the &ldquoTu&rdquo level, so I did not have to worry about addressing him as &ldquoYour Holiness,&rdquo or &ldquoHoly Father.&rdquo I offered him all our Jesuit resources because in his new position he is going to need counsel, thinking, persons, etc. He showed gratitude for this and at the invitation to visit us for lunch at the Curia he said he would oblige. There was full commonality of feeling on several issues that we discussed and I remained with the conviction that we will work very well together for the service of the Church &hellip

There was calm, humor and mutual understanding about past, present and future. I left the Casa de Santa Marta convinced that the Pope will gladly count on our collaboration in the vineyard of the Lord. At the end he helped me with my coat and accompanied me to the door. That added a couple of salutes to me from the Swiss Guards there. A Jesuit embrace, once again, as the natural way to greet and send off a friend.&rdquo

Fact #7

The Jesuits are responsible for fomenting the two world wars and escalating the Vietnam War after President Kennedy&rsquos assassination:

&ldquoThe public is practically unaware of the overwhelming responsibility carried by the Vatican and its Jesuits in the starting of the two world wars &ndash a situation which may be explained in part by the gigantic finances at the disposition of the Vatican and its Jesuits, giving them power in so many spheres, especially since the last conflict.&rdquo
Source: Edmond Paris, The Secret History of the Jesuits, page 9

The documented atrocities committed by the Jesuits, particularly those under the Ustachi (or Usta&scarone) are particularly disturbing and shocking, especially since there are actual photographs of such evil. This didn&rsquot happen hundreds or thousands of years ago. It happened in the 1940&rsquos! Here are a few links to some of the nothing short of satanic genocide the Ustachi carried out under the rule of Ante Pavelić, a Catholic Croatian fascist leader, who occupied part of Yugoslavia for Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany, and ultimately for the Papacy. For many in Yugoslavia it was either convert to Catholicism or be brutally tortured and killed.

(Below image &ndash Ustachi symbol)

Fact #8

After Pope Pius VII was freed from exile in 1814, his first order of business upon returning to Rome was to restore the Jesuit order

The papacy suffered great humiliation at the hand of Napoleon. Thus, right after the defeat of Napoleon in 1814, Pope Pius VII was freed from imprisonment and was returned to Rome. The need to restore the Jesuit militia became an urgent matter. Rome did not want to be deprived again of the services of the Jesuits, no matter how burdensome this service was to the Church of Rome, and its allies.

&ldquoIn the agreement to rescue Rome [i.e., the Roman Catholic Church&rsquos hierarchy] from the predicament of losing its world control to Protestantism, and to preserve the spiritual and temporal supremacy which the popes [had] &lsquousurped&rsquo during the Middle Ages, Rome now &lsquosold&rsquo the [Roman Catholic] Church to the Society of Jesus [i.e., the Jesuits] in essence the popes surrendered themselves into their hands.&rdquo
Source: John Daniel (&ldquoThe Grand Design Exposed&rdquo 1999 Page 64)

The Jesuit Order took over the Office of Inquisition shortly after it was sanctioned and this led to the martyrdom of millions of saints

In 1254 Pope Alexander IV established the Office of the Inquisition. The first inquisitor was Dominic, who was the founder of the Dominican order of monks.

However, shortly after Pope Paul III sanctioned the Society of Jesus, the Office of Inquisition was revived and the Pope gave free reign to the Jesuits to run this office, and the inquisitor Generals were granted exceptional powers in carrying out their mandate to root out of all &ldquoheretics.&rdquo This caused the martyrdom of millions of saints.

The quotes below show the effect of Jesuits taking over the Office of the Inquisition:

&ldquoNeed I speak to you of the thirty years&rsquo war in Germany, which was mainly instigated by the Jesuits, in order to deprive the Protestants of the right of free religious worship, secured to them by the treaty of Augsburg? Or of the Irish rebellion, of the inhuman butchery of about fifteen millions of Indians in South America, Mexico and Cuba, by the Spanish papists? In short, it is calculated by authentic historians, that papal Rome has shed the blood of sixty-eight millions of the human race in order to establish her unfounded claims to religious dominion.&rdquo Source: Dr. Brownlee&rsquos &ldquoPopery an enemy to civil liberty&rdquo, p. 105

&ldquoThis was the century of the last religious wars in &ldquoChristendom,&rdquo the Thirty Years&rsquo War in Germany, fomented by the Jesuits, reducing the people to cannibalism, and the population of Bohemia from 4,000,000 to 780,000, and of Germany from 20,000,000 to 7,000,000, and making Southern Germany almost a desert, . &rdquo

Writing about the Jesuits, [John] Lord states

&ldquoThey are accused of securing the revocation of the Edict of Nantes,-- one of the greatest crimes in the history of modern times, which led to the expulsion of four hundred thousand Protestants from France, and the execution of four hundred thousand more.&rdquo

Source: John Lord, Beacon Lights of History, volume VI, p. 325.

&ldquoIn Bohemia, by 1600, in a population of 4,000,000, 80 per cent were Protestant. When the Hapsburgs and Jesuits had done their work, 800,000 were left, all Catholics.&rdquo

Source: Henry H., Pocket Bible Handbook, Chicago, 13 th edition, 1939, p. 790.

The Jesuits succeeded in their destructive agenda through dominating the confessor field wherever they went

&ldquoThe Jesuits became the predominant group supplying confessors to (meaning, hearers of the confessions of) kings and princes and those in authority. As the New Catholic Encyclopedia says, "they acted as royal confessor to all French kings for 2 centuries, from Henry III to Louis XV to all German emperors after the early 17th century to all Dukes of Bavaria after 1579 to most rulers of Poland and Portugal to princely families throughout Europe.

&ldquoAs advisors to kings, they influenced political policy. A royal confessor was not slow to tell a king that he had a duty to make the kind of political alliances that would promote the temporal interests of the Church. It was Le Tellier, Jesuit confessor to Louis XIV, who in the 1680's persuaded that monarch to revoke the Edict of Nantes, which granted religious liberty to Protestants.&rdquo

The Jesuits are even confessors of popes. &ldquoThe Pope&rsquos confessor, an ordinary priest, must be a Jesuit: he must visit the Vatican once a week at a fixed time, and he alone may absolve the Pope of his sins.&rdquo

Ignatius Loyola - Jesuit Founder - by Francisco Zurbaran.

Given the above historic facts about the Jesuits, it is incredulous and most shocking to see the media and the world&rsquos religious and political leaders stampeding to endorse and praise Pope Francis. We have no words to describe this unprecedented worldwide epidemic of memory loss towards Rome and her Jesuits.

The prescient warning of General Sherman is most appropriate to quote today:

&ldquoI would remind you of Webster&rsquos definition of a Jesuit: a designer, an intriguer. If the Church of Rome prevailed, the Pope would be the Universal King . . . The Jesuits are here to plot and scheme and, if possible, take from us the noble heritage of our civil and religious freedom. The rules of the Jesuit Order justify theft, licentiousness, lying, false-witness bearing, suicide and the murder of parents and other relatives. The greatest crimes in history committed against individuals and nations have been committed by the Jesuits . . . Wherever Jesuits are they have the torch to burn, the sword to slay, the inquisition to torture. They are the enemies of [Bible-believing] Christianity. They live for conquest, fortune and glory.&rdquo

Source: General Sherman&rsquos Son: The Life of Thomas Ewing Sherman, S.J., Joseph T. Durkin, S. J., (New York: Farrar, Straus and Cudahy, 1959) p. 186.

It is our duty to as followers of Yahuwah to expose Rome and her Jesuits, and to pray for the utter destruction of their evil deceit. Prayer is the only weapon we have against this veiled enemy we face today. Rome and her Jesuits are the greatest enemy of the Gospel and of humanity. However, we are assured in His prophetic Word that they will not prevail. The Harlot will be utterly destroyed prior to the Second Coming of Yahushua:

&ldquoAnd the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.&rdquo Revelation 17:16.


You might also Like

To understand Jesuits, their cause and purpose you must study and look for their history, at least that which can be found.

Their goal today is the same as it was in the 1600s and beyond. It is to fight Protestantism and bring high offices of authority under their control.

At one point, a couple of Jesuits were commissioned by the church to come up a solution to the teachings of the reformers. One such man, Ribera, proposed a teaching which is today called Futurism, which detaches scriptural principals from historic relationships. Rather it's a feel good methodology that allows pastors and priests to literally make up theology with little tie to Bible principles.

Futurism is what is taught in most Bible universities and seminaries today. Most of our leading "Protestant" teachers today have been duped into following these methods of learning and presenting the scriptures. Ribera the Jesuit and the Church are successful in killing the Reformers messages and keeping them from the masses.

If you can find a true protestant church that teaches the Reformers -- teachings which described the universal church as the seat of the anti-Christ and the Pope as the anti-Christ, then now you know what the Jesuits have been busy doing. They have been altering history, infiltrating churches and pressing their mission.

These are the informational facts born out in the written records of the Jesuits and in our history books.

A very clear record of the activities of the Jesuits was written in 1881. It contains copies of documents captured that record the insidious activities of their order.

This order of militarized priests goes through a very intense training before ever being ordained. By the time they have been ordained, they have so invested their bodies, minds and lives that they effectively are mindless machines hell bent on the purposes of the church.

Even when the Popes go off point they will murder them. Thus one must ask who is running the church's organization. Was it the Pope or the Jesuit Commander. And what happens when the Pope is a Jesuit?

Before anyone says I'm trashing the Catholic Church, know many in my family are Catholic, so don't make that claim. It wouldn't be true. What I have shared is just a very small portion of what is written about this order. If you truly knew their full role in world activities you would be stunned. I know I am.

Jesuits, as of 1881, were removed from 50-plus nations because of their activities and trouble making. I have had others in the last few years tell me that number is up to about 86.

France, once a home to the order, finally removed all religion and burned all bibles over a three-year period from within their borders sometime between 1793 and 1814. In 1793 the order was removed from France. I used to believe France was just a godless country back then, but the truth seems to be that they were fed up with the activities of the Catholic Jesuits and came to view Christian activity as subversive and destructive. Their view from their perspective was of Jesuit Catholicism and not true Christianity.

What one must understand is that the order of the Jesuits has a mission. They were shut down by the church itself at one time due to their intense activities. Even the church feared them. The Pope who intended to issue the Bull to end the order is recorded as knowing he signed his own death warrant, and in fact, he was murdered before doing so. Then his replacement felt it necessary to finish the task. He issued the Bull. Afterward, a message was posted about him dying by September and in fact he did. He had been poisoned and it's reported he smelled of the stench.

Good resources if you can get a copy's is a book set written by J. A. Wylie. Title "The reformation and Jesuitism" Other works are "The Papacy" and "The Jesuits". Some of the dates I have mentioned are from memory and may need some correction, but the basic information is correct as best I recall.

Be careful as you research the information online. There are always those with an agenda to injure due to prejudice. This information I have written is of historic documents.

As I understand it, the Jesuit Order is still active as the Militarized Order of Priests with sworn loyalty to the Church with the mission to put as many nations under their control as possible using any method necessary to accomplish their goals. I was amazed to learn there were Jesuits who were servants who were cozy with their wealthy masters. They would gather information and send it to their commander weekly or even monthly. Jesuits can be found in any capacity or work and all are working towards the same goal. The Goals of the Church as perceived by them or the Commander. (The Commander, a man, is not the Pope).

They have a special Constitution that allows them to violate the inviolate Laws of God. "The motto" it's almost humorous today, "The end justifies the means". IF in their minds they are serving the churches/God’s greater purpose they can murder, steal, lie, marry, then ultimately, there is nothing they can't do to accomplish their purpose. This is an evil creature.

Were not the Jesuits a military order set up to counter Reformed Churches and convert heathens? SarahGen February 17, 2013

@fify-- Yea, I hear this a lot too. It's all based on the the claim that the Jesuit order is a secret society. Some people say that some members of the order are also members of the Illuminati or that the Illuminati is part of the Jesuit order and that they are trying to rule the world.

I don't think there is any basis for any of this. Even if the Jesuit order had a secret society component early in their formation, I don't think it exists any longer.

Plus, the ideas and goals of the Illuminati have nothing to do with the ideals of Catholicism or Jesuits. fify February 17, 2013

Jesuits are often mentioned alongside the Illuminati. What is the connection between them? serenesurface February 16, 2013

@anon22514-- Do you know any Jesuits, or can you get in touch with Jesuit colleges or churches nearby?

This will be the best way to learn more about the order and the requirements to join them.

I have several friends who belong to the order. I'm not Catholic, nor am I interested in the order, so I've never asked them about it.

But I can tell you one thing, these friends are some of the smartest, funniest, most knowledgeable and faithful people I have met. If the order is anything like them, it must be amazing. tigers88 October 16, 2012

How does one become a Jesuit? Does it take training beyond what is required of a regular priest? Would I have to get a seminary degree? Thanks for any info! BAU79 October 16, 2012

I went to a Jesuit high school and I have a lot of respect for the work that they do. My feelings about Catholicism and religion in general are pretty complicated, but I cannot look at the Jesuits with anything but respect.

In my experience they were good men with open minds who had made firm commitments to live principled lives. And their focus is on education. That seems like a pretty noble calling to me. anon166927 April 10, 2011

what is the primary plan of the Jesuits for 2011? anon22514 December 5, 2008


Italy

In Italy they were expelled from Naples (1820-21) but in 1836 there were admitted to Lombardy. Driven out by the Revolution of 1848 from almost the whole peninsula, they were able to return when peace was restored, except to Turin. Then with the gradual growth of United Italy they were step by step suppressed again by law everywhere, and finally at Rome in 1871. But though formally suppressed and unable to keep schools, except on a very small scale, the law is so worded that it does not press at every point, nor is it often enforced with acrimony. Numbers do not fall off, and activities increase. In Rome, they have charge, inter alia, of the Gregorian University, the "Institutum Biblicum", and the German and Latin-American colleges.


10 FACTS You Must Know About The Jesuits!

The Society of Jesus, more commonly referred to as the Jesuits, are the armed militia of the Roman Catholic Church. They were sanctioned in 1540 by Pope Paul III with one mandate: to defeat Protestantism and regain worldwide Papal rule. To achieve this monumental task, they employ ever-adapting methods of pseudo-education, social programs, infiltration, and all wickedness that could possibly be conceived. Needless to say, they are achieving great success in their mission, which is climaxing with the present pope, Pope Francis, i.e. the Eighth and last Pope of Revelation 17, who held some of the highest positions in Argentina, including Provincial Superior in the Society of Jesus and Archbishop of Buenos Aires. He was made a cardinal by Pope John Paul II.

Today most of the world is oblivious as to how Jesuits operate, from their inception to this very day. Now more than ever, World’s Last Chance believes it is exceedingly important to bring up the following historical facts about this evil society, to expose the wicked nature of this truly malevolent order.

Pope Clement XIV abolished the Jesuits

Pope Clement XIV abolished the Jesuits as a society in 1773:

It did not take long for the 18th Century Catholic nations to get tired of the meddling of the Jesuits into their national affairs. They were so infuriated against the Jesuits that they demanded the Roman Catholic Church abolish them once and for all. Sufficient political pressure was brought to bear on Pope Clement XIII. However, he passed away before he could do anything about it. The task of abolishing the Society of Jesus then fell on his successor, Clement XIV. As Clement XIV signed the decree abolishing the Jesuit Order he said, “I have signed my death warrant,…” Within nine months he was dead. [Many contemporaries considered his death a case of poisoning, and suspected the Jesuits were responsible].

No other entity on Earth was expelled and suppressed by Catholic and non-Catholic countries as the Jesuits:

Obviously the Jesuits were not expelled from many nations (even Catholic nations) because of their educational or charity work. They were expelled for engaging in and carrying out subversive political plots against humanity to advance their own cause.

“Between 1555 and 1931 the Society of Jesus [i.e., the Jesuit Order] was expelled from at least 83 countries, city states and cities, for engaging in political intrigue and subversion plots against the welfare of the State, according to the records of a Jesuit priest of repute [i.e., Thomas J. Campbell]. Practically every instance of expulsion was for political intrigue, political infiltration, political subversion, and inciting to political insurrection.”

The Jesuits are known for their deception, spying, infiltration, assassination, and revolution. They worked deep into the political field and plotted through politics throughout the world countries.

Source: “The Babington Plot”, by J.E.C. Shepherd, p.12

When the Jesuits are expelled from a country, they simply change strategies and return to the country they were expelled from under a new disguise. The following sums up their operational strategy:

“We came in like lambs and will rule like wolves. We shall be expelled like dogs and return like eagles.”

Source: Francesco Borgia, Third Jesuit Superior General.

Hitler and the Jesuit connection

Hitler modeled his dreaded SS army and party after the organizational structure of the Jesuits and the Roman Catholic Church:

“…the SS organization had been constituted according to the principles of the Jesuit Order.”

Source: “The Secret History of the Jesuits,” by Edmond Paris, p. 164

Walter Schellenberg, former chief of Nazi counter-espionage made this statement: “The S.S. organization had been constituted by Himmler [Heinrich Himmler, leading member of the Nazi party] according to the principles of the Jesuit Order. Their regulations and the Spiritual Exercises prescribed by Ignatius of Loyola were the model Himmler tried to copy exactly. Himmler’s title as supreme chief of the S.S. was to be the equivalent of the Jesuits’ ‘General’ and the whole structure was a close imitation of the Catholic Church’s hierarchical order.” “The Secret History of the Jesuits,” by Edmond Paris, p. 164

Above all I have learned from the Jesuits. And so did Lenin too, “far as I recall. The world has never known anything quite so splendid as the hierarchical structure of the Catholic Church. There were quite a few things I simply appropriated from the Jesuits for the use of the Party.

Source: Manfred Barthel, “The Jesuits: History and Legend of the Society of Jesus (New York, 1984), Adolf Hitler, p.266.

“I learned much from the Order of the Jesuits”, said Hitler… “Until now, there has never been anything more grandiose, on the earth, than the hierarchical organization of the Catholic Church. I transferred much of this organization into my own party… I am going to let you in on a secret… I am founding an Order… In my “Burgs” of the Order, we will raise up a youth which will make the world tremble… Hitler then stopped, saying that he couldn’t say any more..

Vatican connection to Nazis
Signing the concordat is Cardinal Pacelli (later to become Pope Pius XII). By 1933 he was the Vatican Secretary of State. Second from left is Franz von Papen, a sinister Nazi and devout Roman Catholic who was Hitler’s ace diplomat and the Vatican’s agent in helping to bring Hitler to power. Standing at the far right can be seen the little-known Vatican prelate, Montini, later to become Pope Paul VI.

“The Fuhrer had come to power, thanks to the votes of the Catholic Zentrum [Center Party overseen by Jesuit Ludwig Kaas], only five years before 1933, but most of the objectives cynically revealed in Mein Kampf were already realized this book . . . was written by the Jesuit controlled Father Bernhardt Stempfle and signed by Hitler. For . . . it was the Society of Jesus which perfected the famous Pan-German programme as laid out in this book, and the Fuhrer endorsed it.”

Source: Edmond Paris, The Secret History of the Jesuits, page 138

Franz von Papen, another powerful Nazi, who was instrumental in setting up the concordat between Germany and the Vatican had this to say: “The Third Reich is the first world power which not only acknowledges but also puts into practice the high principles of the papacy.”

Fact #4Jesuit education

Over the last 400 years the Jesuits have succeeded in establishing the largest worldwide network of schools and universities.

These prominent schools and universities, have produced many well known alumni. Thus, the Jesuits have been able to shape and mould the thinking of many famous world leaders, and produce generations of political and religious leaders who were favorable to the Roman Catholic Church, and her doctrinal agenda.

The renowned British preacher, Charles Haddon Spurgeon, once warned about the church ministers who are graduating from these universities that “… they keep back a portion of the gospel … having studied in the devil’s new Jesuitical college.”
Source: Charles H. Spurgeon “A Solemn Warning for All Churches,” Sermon No. 68

Agents of the Jesuits have been responsible for assassinating many heads of State over the centuries:

Heads of states were assassinated by the Jesuits, when they attempt to suppress the influence and meddling of the Jesuits in their national affairs. Of heads of states that are known to have been assassinated by Jesuits we mention for example: William of Orange, Kings Henry III and Henry IV of France, Czars Alexander I and Alexander II of Russia, President Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy, and Mexican President Benito Pablo Juarez.

Jesuit connection to Lincoln assassination

Abraham Lincoln was fully aware of the evil nature of the Jesuits. He stated, “… it is not against the Americans of the South, alone, I am fighting. It is more against the Pope of Rome, his perfidious Jesuits and their blind and blood-thirsty slaves that we have to defend ourselves.”

Source: Fifty Years in the Church of Rome, by Charles Chiniquy. p. 496

“It would seem that the Jesuits had had it in mind, from the beginning of the war [the American Civil War of 1861-1865], to find an occasion for the taking off [i.e., the assassination] of Mr. [Abraham] Lincoln.”
Source: Thomas M. Harris (U.S. Army Brigadier General Author of the book Rome’s Responsibility for the Assassination of Abraham Lincoln)

“The favorite policy of the Jesuits [is] that of assassination.”
Source: U.S. Army Brigadier General Thomas M. Harris “Rome’s Responsibility for the Assassination of Abraham Lincoln” 1897 Page 19)

“It is of faith that the Pope has the right of deposing heretical and rebel kings. Monarchs so deposed by the Pope are converted into notorious tyrants, and may be killed by the first who can reach them.
“If the public cause cannot meet with its defense in the death of a tyrant, it is lawful for the first who arrives, to assassinate him.”

[Defensio Didei, Jesuit Suarez, Book VI. C 4, Nos. 13, 14]

[Donald] Freed remembers what apparently passes for polite conversation when men such as [William] Colby and [Ray] Cline get together. “It was quite bizarre” Freed said, “for the subject they chose was, ‘When is it acceptable to assassinate a head of state?’ Colby presented what he said was a theological and philosophically sound approach. “The Catholic Church,” he said, “had long since wrestled with this question and had,” to Colby’s mind, emerged with a sound concept: “It is acceptable,” he said, “to assassinate a tyrant.” [Donald Freed is a friend of the author, Mark Lane. He organized a conference at USC for the U.S. intelligence community and its critics to meet. In the panel were Lane, Ellsberg and John Gerassi, all critics. On the other side were William Colby, former DCI (Director of Central Intelligence from September 1973 to January 1976), David Atlee Phillips, and Ray Cline, former deputy DCI’s.]

[Plausible Denial, Mark Lane, 1991, p. 85]

Jesuit connection to Kennedy assassinationPresident John F. Kennedy was another victim of appalling Jesuit wickedness. Once he outwardly distanced himself from the Papal agenda and stood for more liberal ideals and human rights, he was considered, by their standards, a traitor to the Vatican and a “tyrant” worthy of death.

This is an excerpt from “Vatican Assassins” by Eric Jon Phelps:

Knowing that President Kennedy was not going to escalate the Vietnam War, the Intelligence Community began to prepare for his assassination. . . . Cardinal Spellman [Francis Spellman, Archbishop of New York from 1939-1967], through FDR, had arranged the release of “Lucky” Luciano . . . Now the Cardinal needed a favor. If refused, Spellman could use the entire intelligence community which he had helped to organize, to eliminate any mob boss. If agreed to, new gambling centers would open up, Atlantic City in particular. Clearly, if the President [JFK] was removed, everybody would acquire more power and wealth, the intelligence community would become more absolute, and the Cardinal would be even more respected by his peers in Rome.
Later, in 1964, for the first time in history, the Pope of Rome set foot in Fourteenth Amendment America. Cardinal Spellman had performed well and was rewarded by a visit from his Master, fellow Cold Warrior and Vatican Ratline handler, Cardinal Montini, who was now Pope Paul VI. There is yet another reason for the removal of President Kennedy. He wanted to arm Israel. Loftus writes:

“In September 1962 Kennedy decided to supply Israel with defensive ground-to-air missiles capable of stopping aircraft, but not the Egyptian offensive missiles. It was the first arms sale by the U.S. Government to Israel…. Kennedy promised the Israelis that as soon as the 1964 election was over, he would break the CIA ‘into a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds’…. With Kennedy’s assassination in November 1963, the Israelis lost the best friend they had in the White House since Truman departed.” Source: The Secret War Against The Jews, John Loftus, 1994]

And why did the Vatican’s Jesuits not want any arms sales to Israel at this time? Why did the Jesuit-controlled President Johnson turn his back as the Egyptian army moved up through the Sinai desert to prepare its assault on Israel in 1967? Because the attack upon Israel had to be provoked. That attack was provoked by the Jesuits’ International Intelligence Community through Egypt falsely perceiving the weakness of the Israeli army and the supposed abandonment of Israel by the American Empire. The six-day war, engineered by Knight of Malta James Angleton, had one primary purpose: the taking of Jerusalem along with the Temple Mount. The apparent lack of military hardware on the part of Israel provoked the planned attack by Egypt. Therefore, Israel launched a preemptive strike and, in six days, the holy city was in the hands of Rome’s Zionist government.

Had Kennedy armed Israel, the Egyptians would never have been emboldened to maneuver for war. With no provoked war, there would have been no Israeli attack. With no Israeli attack, Jerusalem would never have been taken by the Zionists, controlled by the Jesuits’ Mossad. With Jerusalem in Arab hands, the Zionists could never rebuild Solomon’s Temple—unbeknown to them—for the Jesuits’ “infallible” Pope,
“Who opposeth and exalted himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped so he is God sitteth in the temple of God [Solomon’s rebuilt temple], showing himself that he is God.”
-[II Thes 2:4]

It is safe to say that the Jesuit General, using the Pope with his most powerful Cardinal, [assassinated President Kennedy].

Assassination of Kennedy “Pietà” hangs in the Vatican Cathedral of St. Paul.

One might assume that this emotive painting would hang somewhere in Dallas, Texas or perhaps in the Smithsonian. And one would be wrong on both counts. This painting of President John F. Kennedy’s gruesome assassination, by Mark Balma, hangs in the Vatican Cathedral of St. Paul. The painting is entitled “Pietà” after Michelangelo’s famous sculpture of Mary holding the body of the crucified Christ, which is also located at the Vatican. Isn’t this a macabre way to “celebrate” the life of perhaps America’s most beloved President? or is this rather an homage to the Jesuit agenda, serving as a stern warning/reminder to those willing to cross them?

The Jesuits today control all the powerful secret societies that are shaping the New World Order

Jesuits at the head of secret societies

“The list of secret societies being controlled by the Jesuits today include: the Freemasonry, the Knights of Malta, the Bilderberg group, and the higher levels of the Knights of Columbus, and the highest levels of Opus Dei – and all the subgroups that fall under these powerful entities.”

“There are still …[men and women] about the country, who will tell you, with grim gravity that, if you trace up Masonry, through all its Orders, till you come to the grand tip-top, head Mason of the world, you will discover that the dread individual and the Chief of the Society of Jesus are one and the same person!”

Source: James Parton, 1855, American Historian, The Black Pope, M.F. Cusack, (London: Marshall, Russell & Co., 1896) p. 76.

If the above is true, than the example below would be a meeting of two of the most powerful men on Earth! The Head of the Jesuits and the Pope, who is also a Jesuit.

Father General Nicolás [Superior General of the Society of Jesus/Jesuits] meets with Pope Francis and wrote of his experience.

Father General Nicolás meets with Pope Francis“At the personal invitation of the Pope Francis I went to the Santa Marta House. . . He was at the entrance and received me with the usual Jesuit embrace. We had a few pictures taken, at his request, and at my apologies for not keeping protocol he insisted that I treat him like any other Jesuit at the “Tu” level, so I did not have to worry about addressing him as “Your Holiness,” or “Holy Father.” I offered him all our Jesuit resources because in his new position he is going to need counsel, thinking, persons, etc. He showed gratitude for this and at the invitation to visit us for lunch at the Curia he said he would oblige. There was full commonality of feeling on several issues that we discussed and I remained with the conviction that we will work very well together for the service of the Church …

There was calm, humor and mutual understanding about past, present and future. I left the Casa de Santa Marta convinced that the Pope will gladly count on our collaboration in the vineyard of the Lord. At the end he helped me with my coat and accompanied me to the door. That added a couple of salutes to me from the Swiss Guards there. A Jesuit embrace, once again, as the natural way to greet and send off a friend.”

The Secret History of the Jesuits, Edmond Paris

The Jesuits are responsible for fomenting the two world wars and escalating the Vietnam War after President Kennedy’s assassination:

“The public is practically unaware of the overwhelming responsibility carried by the Vatican and its Jesuits in the starting of the two world wars – a situation which may be explained in part by the gigantic finances at the disposition of the Vatican and its Jesuits, giving them power in so many spheres, especially since the last conflict.”

Pavelić facing Cardinal StepinacCatholic Bishops giving the Nazi saluteThe documented atrocities committed by the Jesuits, particularly those under the Ustachi (or Ustaše) are particularly disturbing and shocking, especially since there are actual photographs of such evil. This didn’t happen hundreds or thousands of years ago. It happened in the 1940’s! Here are a few links to some of the nothing short of satanic genocide the Ustachi carried out under the rule of Ante Pavelić, a Catholic Croatian fascist leader, who occupied part of Yugoslavia for Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany, and ultimately for the Papacy. For many in Yugoslavia it was either convert to Catholicism or be brutally tortured and killed.

Pope Pius VII reinstated the Jesuits

After Pope Pius VII was freed from exile in 1814, his first order of business upon returning to Rome was to restore the Jesuit order

The papacy suffered great humiliation at the hand of Napoleon. Thus, right after the defeat of Napoleon in 1814, Pope Pius VII was freed from imprisonment and was returned to Rome. The need to restore the Jesuit militia became an urgent matter. Rome did not want to be deprived again of the services of the Jesuits, no matter how burdensome this service was to the Church of Rome, and its allies.

“In the agreement to rescue Rome [i.e., the Roman Catholic Church’s hierarchy] from the predicament of losing its world control to Protestantism, and to preserve the spiritual and temporal supremacy which the popes [had] ‘usurped’ during the Middle Ages, Rome now ‘sold’ the [Roman Catholic] Church to the Society of Jesus [i.e., the Jesuits] in essence the popes surrendered themselves into their hands.”
Source: John Daniel (“The Grand Design Exposed” 1999 Page 64)

The Jesuit Order took over the Office of Inquisition shortly after it was sanctioned and this led to the martyrdom of millions of saints

Jesuit Order took over the Office of Inquisition

In 1254 Pope Alexander IV established the Office of the Inquisition. The first inquisitor was Dominic, who was the founder of the Dominican order of monks.

However, shortly after Pope Paul III sanctioned the Society of Jesus, the Office of Inquisition was revived and the Pope gave free reign to the Jesuits to run this office, and the inquisitor Generals were granted exceptional powers in carrying out their mandate to root out of all “heretics.” This caused the martyrdom of millions of saints.

The quotes below show the effect of Jesuits taking over the Office of the Inquisition:

“Need I speak to you of the thirty years’ war in Germany, which was mainly instigated by the Jesuits, in order to deprive the Protestants of the right of free religious worship, secured to them by the treaty of Augsburg? Or of the Irish rebellion, of the inhuman butchery of about fifteen millions of Indians in South America, Mexico and Cuba, by the Spanish papists? In short, it is calculated by authentic historians, that papal Rome has shed the blood of sixty-eight millions of the human race in order to establish her unfounded claims to religious dominion.” Source: Dr. Brownlee’s “Popery an enemy to civil liberty”, p. 105

“This was the century of the last religious wars in “Christendom,” the Thirty Years’ War in Germany, fomented by the Jesuits, reducing the people to cannibalism, and the population of Bohemia from 4,000,000 to 780,000, and of Germany from 20,000,000 to 7,000,000, and making Southern Germany almost a desert, …”

Source: Cushing B. Hassell, History of the Church of God, Chapter XVII.

Writing about the Jesuits, [John] Lord states

“They are accused of securing the revocation of the Edict of Nantes,– one of the greatest crimes in the history of modern times, which led to the expulsion of four hundred thousand Protestants from France, and the execution of four hundred thousand more.”

Source: John Lord, Beacon Lights of History, volume VI, p. 325.

“In Bohemia, by 1600, in a population of 4,000,000, 80 per cent were Protestant. When the Hapsburgs and Jesuits had done their work, 800,000 were left, all Catholics.”

Source: Henry H., Pocket Bible Handbook, Chicago, 13th edition, 1939, p. 790.

The Jesuits succeeded in their destructive agenda through dominating the confessor field wherever they went

“The Jesuits became the predominant group supplying confessors to (meaning, hearers of the confessions of) kings and princes and those in authority. As the New Catholic Encyclopedia says, “they acted as royal confessor to all French kings for 2 centuries, from Henry III to Louis XV to all German emperors after the early 17th century to all Dukes of Bavaria after 1579 to most rulers of Poland and Portugal to princely families throughout Europe.

“As advisors to kings, they influenced political policy. A royal confessor was not slow to tell a king that he had a duty to make the kind of political alliances that would promote the temporal interests of the Church. It was Le Tellier, Jesuit confessor to Louis XIV, who in the 1680’s persuaded that monarch to revoke the Edict of Nantes, which granted religious liberty to Protestants.”

The Jesuits are even confessors of popes. “The Pope’s confessor, an ordinary priest, must be a Jesuit: he must visit the Vatican once a week at a fixed time, and he alone may absolve the Pope of his sins.”

Ignatius Loyola – Jesuit Founder – by Francisco Zurbaran

Given the above historic facts about the Jesuits, it is incredulous and most shocking to see the media and the world’s religious and political leaders stampeding to endorse and praise Pope Francis. We have no words to describe this unprecedented worldwide epidemic of memory loss towards Rome and her Jesuits.

The prescient warning of General Sherman is most appropriate to quote today:

“I would remind you of Webster’s definition of a Jesuit: a designer, an intriguer. If the Church of Rome prevailed, the Pope would be the Universal King . . . The Jesuits are here to plot and scheme and, if possible, take from us the noble heritage of our civil and religious freedom. The rules of the Jesuit Order justify theft, licentiousness, lying, false-witness bearing, suicide and the murder of parents and other relatives. The greatest crimes in history committed against individuals and nations have been committed by the Jesuits . . . Wherever Jesuits are they have the torch to burn, the sword to slay, the inquisition to torture. They are the enemies of [Bible-believing] Christianity. They live for conquest, fortune and glory.”

Source: General Sherman’s Son: The Life of Thomas Ewing Sherman, S.J., Joseph T. Durkin, S. J., (New York: Farrar, Straus and Cudahy, 1959) p. 186.

It is our duty to as followers of Yahuwah to expose Rome and her Jesuits, and to pray for the utter destruction of their evil deceit. Prayer is the only weapon we have against this veiled enemy we face today. Rome and her Jesuits are the greatest enemy of the Gospel and of humanity. However, we are assured in His prophetic Word that they will not prevail. The Harlot will be utterly destroyed prior to the Second Coming of Yahushua:

“And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.” Revelation 17:16.

Praise His name for ever and ever!!

Institutes, constitutions, legislation

The official publication which constitutes all the regulations of the Society, its codex legum, is entitled "Institutum Societas Jesu" of which the latest edition was issued at Rome and Florence 1869-91 (for full biography see Sommervogel, V, 75-115 IX, 609-611 for commentators see X, 705-710). The Institute contains:

(1) The special Bulls and other pontifical documents approving the Society and canonically determining or regulating its various works, and its ecclesiastical standing and relations.

Besides those already mentioned, other important Bulls are those of: Paul III, "Injunctum nobis", 14 March, 1543 Julius III, "Exposcit debitum", 21 July, 1550 Pius V, "Æquum reputamus", 17 January, 1565 Pius VII, "Solicitudo omnium ecclesiarum", 7 August, 1814, Leo XIII, "Dolemus inter alia", 13 July, 1880.

  6. religious vows and other obligations as observed by the Society
  7. missions and other ministries
  8. congregations, local and general assemblies as a means of union and uniformity
  9. the general and chief superiors
  10. the preservation of the spirit of the Society.
  • Decrees of General Congregations, which have equal authority with the Constitutions
  • Rules, general and particular, etc.
  • Formulae or order of business for the congregations
  • Ordinations of generals, which have the same authority as rules
  • Instructions, some for superiors, others for those engaged in the missions or other works of the Society
  • Industriae, or special counsels for superiors
  • The Book of the Spiritual and
  • the Ratio Studiorum, which have directive force only.

The Constitutions as drafted by Ignatius and adopted finally by the first congregation of the Society, 1558, have never been altered. Ill-informed writers have stated that Lainez, the second general, made considerable changes in the saint's conception of the order but Ignatius' own later recension of the Constitutions, lately reproduced in facsimile (Rome, 1908), exactly agree with the text of the Constitutions now in force, and contains no word by Lainez, not even in the declarations, or glosses added to the text, which are all the work of Ignatius. The text in use in the Society is a Latin version prepared under the direction of the third congregation, and subjected to a minute comparison with the Spanish original preserved in the Society's archives, during the fourth congregation (1581).

These Constitutions were written after long deliberation between Ignatius and his companions in the founding of the Society, as at first it seemed to them that they might continue their work without the aid of a special Rule. They were the fruit of long experience and of serious meditation and prayer. Throughout they are inspired by an exalted spirit of charity and zeal for souls.

They contain nothing unreasonable. To appreciate them, however, requires a knowledge of canon law applied to monastic life and also of their history in the light of the times for which they were framed. Usually those who find fault with them either have never read them or else have misinterpreted them. Monod, for instance, in his introduction to Böhmer's essay on the Jesuits ("Les jesuites", Paris, 1910, p. 13, 14) recalls how Michelet mistranslated the words of the Constitutions, p. VI, c. 5, obligationem ad peccatum, and made it appear that they require obedience even to the commission of sin, as if the text were obligatio ad peccandum, where the obvious meaning and purpose of the text is precisely to show that the transgression of the rules is not in itself sinful. Monod enumerates such men as Arnauld, Wolf, Lange, Ranke in the first edition of his "History", Hausser and Droysen, Philippson and Charbonnel, as having repeated the same error, although it has been refuted frequently since 1824, particularly by Gieseler, and corrected by Ranke in his second edition.

Whenever the Constitutions enjoin what is already a serious moral obligation, or superiors, by virtue of their authority, impose a grave obligation, transgression is sinful but this is true of such transgressions not only in the society but out of it. Moreover such commands are rarely given by the superiors and only when the good of the individual member or the common good imperatively demands it. The rule throughout is one of love inspired by wisdom, and must be interpreted in the spirit of charity which animates it. This is especially true of its provisions for the affectionate relations of members with superiors and with one another, by the manifestation of conscience, more or less practiced in every religious order, and by mutual correction when this may be necessary. It also applies to the methods employed to ascertain the qualification of members for various offices or ministries.

The chief authority is vested in the general congregation, which elects the general, and could, for certain grave causes, depose him. This body could also (although there has never yet been an occasion for so doing) add new Constitutions and abrogate old ones. Usually this congregation is convened on the occasion of the death of a general, in order to elect a successor, and to make provisions for the government and welfare of the Society. It may also be called at other times for grave reasons. It consists of the general, when alive, and his assistants, the provincials, and two deputies from each province or territorial division of the society elected by the superiors and older professed members.

Thus authority in the Society eventually rests on a democratic basis. But as there is no definite time for calling the general congregation &mdash which in fact rarely occurs except to elect a new general &mdash the exercise of authority is usually in the hands of the general, in whom is vested the fullness of administrative power, and of spiritual authority. He can do anything within the scope of the Constitutions, and can even dispense with them for good causes, though he cannot change them. He resides at Rome, and has a council of assistants, five in number at present, one each for Italy, France, Spain, and the countries of Spanish origin, one for Germany, Austria, Poland, Belgium, Hungary, Holland, and one for English-speaking countries &mdash England, Ireland, United States, Canada, and British colonies (except India). These usually hold office until the death of the general. Should the general through age or infirmity become incapacitated for governing the Society, a vicar is chosen by a general congregation to act for him. At his death he names one so to act until the congregation can meet and elect his successor.

Next to him in order of authority comes the provincials, the heads of the Society, whether for an entire country, as England, Ireland, Canada, Belgium, Mexico, or, where these units are too large or too small to make convenient provinces they may be subdivided or joined together. Thus there are now four provinces in the United States: California, Maryland-New York, Missouri, New Orleans. In all there are now twenty-seven provinces. The provincial is appointed by the general, with ample administrative faculties. He too has a council of "counselors" and an "admonitor" appointed by the general. Under the provincial come the local superiors. Of these, rectors of colleges, provosts of professed houses, and masters of novices are appointed by the general the rest by the provincial. To enable the general to make and control so many appointments, a free and ample correspondence is kept up, and everyone has the right of private communication with him. No superior, except the general, is named for life. Usually provincials and rectors of colleges hold office for three years.

  • Novices (whether received as lay brothers for the domestic and temporal services of the order, or as aspirants to the priesthood), who are trained in the spirit and discipline of the order, prior to making the religious vows.
  • At the end of two years the novices make simple vows, and, if aspirants to the priesthood, become formed scholastics they remain in this grade as a rule from two to fifteen years, in which time they will have completed all their studies, pass (generally) a certain period in teaching, receive the priesthood, and go through a third year of novitiate or probation (the tertianship). According to the degree of discipline and virtue, and to the talents they display (the latter are normally tested by the examination for the Degree of Doctor of Theology) they may now become formed coadjutors or professed members of the order.
  • Formed coadjutors, whether formed lay brothers or priests, make vows which, though not solemn, are perpetual on their part while the Society, on its side binds itself to them, unless they should commit some grave offense.
  • The professed are all priests, who make, besides the three usual solemnvows of religion, a fourth, of special obedience to the pope in the matter of missions, undertaking to go wherever they are sent, without even requiring money for the journey. They also make certain additional, but non-essential, simple vows, in the matter of poverty, and the refusal of external honours. The professed of the four vows constitute the kernel of the Society the other grades are regarded as preparatory, or as subsidiary to this. The chief offices can be held by the professed alone and though they may be dismissed, they must be received back, if willing to comply with the conditions that may be prescribed. Otherwise they enjoy no privileges, and many posts of importance, such as the government of colleges, may be held by members of other grades. For special reasons some are occasionally professed of three vows and they have certain but not all the privileges of the other professed.

All live in community alike, as regards food, apparel, lodging, recreation, and all are alike bound by the rules of the Society.

There are no secret Jesuits. Like other orders, the Society can, if it will, make its friends participators in its prayers, and in the merits of its good works but it cannot make them members of the order, unless they live the life of the order. There is indeed the case of St. Francis Borgia, who made some of the probations in an unusual way, outside the houses of the order. But this was in order that he might be able to conclude certain business matters and other affairs of state, and thus appear the sooner in public as a Jesuit, not that he might remain permanently outside the common life.

Novitiate and training

Candidates for admission come not only from the colleges conducted by the Society, but from other schools. Frequently post-graduate or professional students, and those who have already begun their career in business or professional life, or even in the priesthood, apply for admission. Usually the candidate applies in person to the provincial, and if he considers him a likely subject he refers him for examination to four of the more experienced fathers. They question him about the age, health, position, occupation of his parents, their religion and good character, their dependence on his services about his own health, obligations such as debts, or other contractual relations his studies, qualifications, moral character, personal motives as well as the external influences that may have lead him to seek admission. The results of their questioning and of their own observation they report severally to the provincial, who weighs their opinions carefully before deciding for or against the applicant. Any notable bodily or mental defect in the candidate, serious indebtedness or other obligation, previous membership in another religious order even for a day, indicating instability of vocation, unqualifies for admission. Undue influence, particularly if exercised by members of the order, would occasion stricter scrutiny than usual into the personal motives of the applicant.

Candidates may enter at any time, but usually there is a fixed day each years for their admission, toward the close of the summer holidays, in order that all may begin their training, or probation, together. They spend the first ten days considering the manner of life they are to adopt, and its difficulties, the rules of the order, the obedience required of its members. They then make a brief retreat, meditating on what they have learned about the Society and examining their own motives and hopes for perserverance in the new mode of life. If all be satisfactory to them and to the superior or director who has charge of them, they are admitted as novices, wear the clerical costume (as there is no special Jesuit habit) and begin in earnest the life of members in the Society. They rise early, make a brief visit to the chapel, a meditation on some subject selected the night before, assist at Mass, review their meditation, breakfast, and then prepare for the day's routine. This consists of manual labor in or out of doors, reading books on spiritual topics, ecclesiastical history, biography, particularly of men or women distinguished for zeal and enterprise in missionary or educational fields. There is a daily conference by the master of the novices on some detail of the Institute, notes of which all are required to make, so as to be ready, when asked, to repeat the salient points.

Wherever it is possible some are submitted to certain tests of their vocation or usefulness to teaching catechism in the village churches to attendance on the sick in hospitals to going about on a pilgrimage or missionary journey without money or other provision. As soon as possible, all make the spiritual exercises for 30 days. This is really the chief test of a vocation, as it is also in epitome the main work of the two years of the novitiate, and for that matter of the entire life of a Jesuit. On these exercises the Constitutions, the life, and activity of the Society are based, so they are really the chief factor in forming the character of a Jesuit.

In accordance with the ideals set forth in these exercises, of disinterested conformity with God's will, and of personal love of Jesus Christ, the novice is trained diligently in the meditative study of the truths of religion, in the habit of self-knowledge, in the constant scrutiny of his motives and of the actions inspired by them, in the correction of every form of self-deceit, illusion, plausible pretext, and in the education of his will, particularly in making choice of what seems best after careful deliberation and without self-seeking. Deeds, not words, are insisted upon as proof of genuine service, and a mechanical, emotional, or fanciful piety is not tolerated. As the novice gradually thus becomes master of his will, he grows more and more capable of offering to God the reasonable service enjoined by St. Paul, and seeks to follow the divine will, as manifested in Jesus Christ, by His vicar on earth, by the bishops appointed to rule His Church, by his more immediate or religious superiors, and by the civil powers rightfully exercising authority. This is what is meant by Jesuit obedience, the characteristic virtue of the order, such a sincere respect for authority as to accept its decisions and comply with them, not merely by outward performance but in all sincerity with the conviction that compliance is best, and that the command expresses for the time the will of God, as nearly as it can be ascertained.

The noviceship lasts two years. On its completion the novice makes the usual vows of religion, the simple vow of chastity in the Society having the force of a diriment impediment to matrimony. During the noviceship but a brief time daily is devoted to reviewing previous studies. The noviceship over, the scholastic members, i.e., those who are to become priests in the Society, follow a special course in classics and mathematics lasting two years, usually in the same house with the novices. Then, in another house and neighbourhood, three years are given to the study of philosophy, about five years to teaching in one or other of the public colleges of the Society, four years to the study of theology, priestly orders being conferred after the third, and finally, one year more to another probation or noviceship, intended to help the young priest renew his spirit of piety and to learn how to utilize to the best of his ability all the learning and experience he has required. In exceptional cases, as in that of a priest who has finished his studies before entering the order, allowance is made and the training periods need not last over ten years, a good part of which is spent in active ministry.

The object of the order is not limited to practicing any one class of good works, however laudable (as preaching, chanting office, doing penance, etc.), but to study, in the manner of the Spiritual, what Christ would have done, if He were living in our circumstances, and to carry out that ideal. Hence elevation and largeness of aim. Hence the motto of the Society, "Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam". Hence the selection of the virtue of obedience as the characteristic of the order, to be ready for any call, and to keep unity in every variety of work. Hence, by easy sequence, the omission of office in choir, of a special distinctive habit, of unusual penances. Where the Protestant reformers aimed at reorganizing the church at large according to their particular conceptions, Ignatius began with interior self-reform and after that had been thoroughly established, then the earnest preaching of self-reform to others. That done, the church would not, and did not, fail to reform herself. Many religious distinguished themselves as educators before the Jesuits but the Society was the first order which enjoined by its very Constitutions devotion to the cause of education. It was, in this sense, the first "teaching order".

The ministry of the Society consists chiefly in preaching teaching catechism, especially to children administering the sacraments especially penance and the Eucharist conducting missions in the parishes on the lines of the Spiritual directing those who wish to follow those exercises in houses of retreat, seminaries or convents taking care of parishes or collegiate churches organizing pious confraternities, sodalities, unions of prayer, Bona Mors associations in their own and other parishes teaching in schools of every grade &mdash academic seminary, university writing books, pamphlets, periodical articles going on foreign missions among uncivilized peoples.

In liturgical functions the Roman Rite is followed. The proper exercise of all these functions is provided for by rules carefully framed by the general congregations or by the generals. All these regulations command the greatest respect on the part of every member. In practice the superior for the time being is the living rule &mdash not that he can alter or abrogate any rule, but because he must interpret and determine its application. In this fact and in its consequences, the Society differs from every religious order antecedent to its foundation to this principally, it owes its life, activity, and power to adapt its Institutes to modern conditions without need of change in that instrument or of reform in the body itself.

The story of the foundation of the Society is told in the article Ignatius Loyola. Briefly, after having inspired his companions Peter Faber, Francis Xavier, James Lainez, Alonso Salmerón, Nicolas Bobadilla, Simon Rodriquez, Claude Le Jay, Jean Codure, and Paschase Brouet with a desire to dwell in the Holy Land imitating the life of Christ, they first made vows of poverty and chastity at Montmartre, Paris, on 15 August, 1534, adding a vow to go to the Holy Land after two years. When this was found to be inpracticable, after waiting another year, they offered their services to the pope, Paul III. Fully another year was passed by some in university towns in Italy, by others at Rome, where, after encountering much opposition and slander, all met together to agree on a mode of life by which they might advance in evangelical perfection and help others in the same task. The first formula of the Institute was submitted to the pope and approved of viva voce, 3 September 1539, and formally, 27 September, 1540.

The following quotes help us to see the impact the Society of Jesus has had on the planet since its inception:

Jesuit Giulio Cesare Cordara:

. nearly all the Kings and Sovereigns of Europe had only Jesuits as directors of their consciences, so that the whole of Europe appeared to be governed by Jesuits only. vi

John Daniel, The Grand Design Exposed (CHJ Publishing, 1999): 77-78:

The Thirty Years&rsquo War, 1618-1648, was a series of conflicts that became the last great struggle of religious wars in Europe. It was fought almost exclusively on German soil&hellipbut before the war ended, it involved most of the nations of Europe. The underlying cause of the war was the deep-seated hostility between the German Protestants and German Catholics &ndash with the Jesuits and Cardinal Richelieu, who was the real ruler of France, fanning the fires to accomplish their end.

. The sixth and last event to be considered is the barbarous Irish Massacre, with its 23 October 1641 launching date &ndash the date that also celebrates the Catholic feast of Ignatius Loyola, founder of the Jesuits.

&hellipAgain the plot is instigated by the Jesuits, priests, and friars, who excite the ignorant Irish Catholic people to a frenzy to commit the most unheard of cruelties. In far away France, Cardinal Richelieu, the French minister, had promised the [Irish Catholic] conspirators a considerable supply of men and money. In one stroke, Catholics rose up against their peaceful and unsuspecting Protestant neighbors, and spared no age, no sex, nor condition. Led on and declared by their fanatical priestly leaders, that no Protestant should be suffered to live any longer among them, adding that it was no more sin to kill a Protestant than to kill a dog, and that the relieving or protecting them was a crime of the most unpardonable nature.

The onslaught raged on, and when it had run its course, one hundred and fifty thousand Protestants lay mutilated, butchered, and dead.

&hellipFor the unbiased researcher, history reeks of the butchery of Romanism, where whole cities and populations were unmercifully wiped out, just because they worshipped God in a manner that was different from Roman Catholicism.

The Jesuit Order &ndash a.k.a. the Society of Jesus, the Order of Jesus, the Sons of Loyola, and &ldquothe Company&rdquo (it was once called &ldquothe Company of Jesus&rdquo) &ndash was founded in 1534 by Ignatius Loyola. It was officially recognized as a Roman Catholic religious order by Pope Paul III in 1540. Jesuits are famous as educators, and as &ldquofather-confessors&rdquo to emperors, kings (and their mistresses), queens, princes, princesses, high-ranking military officers, and many of the powerful and wealthy elite of the world. Jesuits are also infamous as seducers of women in the confessional, murderers of kings, makers of sedition, organizers of coup d&rsquoétats, infiltrators of Protestant denominations, instigators of massacres, and fomenters of wars and revolutions. Numerous books have been written about the Jesuit Order. Some of these books contend that many of the men at the higher levels of the Jesuit Order have been &ndash and are &ndash very evil men!

If there be any doubt about Hitler’s close ties to the Jesuits, Listen to his own words as recorded in 1939 by Hermann Rauschning, former national-socialist chief of the Danzig government: Quote from Hitler

“I learned much from the Order of the Jesuits”, said Hitler… “Until now, there has never been anything more grandiose, on the earth, than the hierarchical organization of the Catholic Church. I transferred much of this organization into my own party… I am going to let you in on a secret… I am founding an Order… In my “Burgs” of the Order, we will raise up a youth which will make the world tremble… ” Hermann Rauschning, former national-socialist chief of the government of Dantzig: “Hitler m’a dit”, (Ed. Co-operation, Paris 1939, pp.266, 267, 273 ss). According to Raushning, Hitler then stopped his speech, abruptly saying: “I can’t say anymore.”

However, after the war, Walter Schellenberg, former of chief of German counter-espionage, finished Hitler’s speech, confirming Hitler’s strong behind the scenes ties to the Vatican and the Jesuit Order.

“The S.S. organization has been constituted by Himmler according to the principles of the Jesuit Order. Their regulations and the spiritual exercises prescribed by Ignatius of Loyola were the model Himmler tried to copy exactly.

“Himmler’s title as supreme chief of the S.S. was to be the equivalent to the Jesuit General and the whole structure and direction was a close imitation of the Catholic Church’s hierarchical order.

And French writer Frederic Hoffet in 1948 wrote:

“Hitler, Goebbels, Himmler and most of the members of the party’s old guard were Catholics. It was not by accident that because of its chief’s religion, the Nationalist-Socialist government was the most Catholic Germany ever had This kinship between socialism and Catholicism is most striking if we study closely the propaganda methods and the interior organization of the party QUOTE BY HITLER ABOUT

HIMMLER “I can see Himmler as our Ignatius of Loyola”

Adolf Hitler: “Libres propos” (Flammarion, Paris 1952, p.164).

He had been brought up in a Jesuit college and was a seminarist before devoting himself to literature and politics Every page, every line of his writings recall the teaching of his masters so he stresses obedience the contempt for truth.”

“Some lies are as useful as bread,” Goebbel’s once proclaimed, taking his words from extracts of Ignatius of Loyola’s writings.

As quoted by Edmund Paris in his final 1975 work, the Secret History of the Jesuits,

another well-informed insider of the pact between Berlin and the Holy See ,

Franz von Papen, was even more explicit when he said:

“The Third Reich is the first world power which not only acknowledges but also puts into practice the high principles of the papacy.”

And what essentially was put into practice was 25 million victims of concentration camps, the official figure once released by the United Nations. But do such barbaric acts belong to the past?

By no means, barbarianism continues today as evidenced by the U.S. government’s illegal invasion in the Middle East as well as its own siege on U.S citizens by advancing a bogus war on terror.

Adolph Hitler Although hidden by the scholars, Hitler’s own words show the Third Reich was organized like the hierarchical organization of the Catholic Church, using Jesuit spiritual exercises.Certain things in history get lost in the shuffle like Adolph Hitler’s loyalty to the Vatican and his eternal gratitude paid to the Jesuit Order. Hitler served the Catholic Church faithfully and he wasn’t afraid or ashamed in admitting his endless devotion to the Society of Jesus And if one looks closely, President obama has the same look, feel and rhetoric of a modern day Hitler. In fact, he can be looked at as the Vatican’s new boy on the block or its Americana version of Hitler as he pushes his fascist-war mongering agenda on the people of the United States and the people of the world. “And you can bet that the Vatican and the Jesuit Order are behind everything,”

but the Vatican placed Adolf hitler in power. For example, Knight of Malta Franz von Papen from the Center Party helped the Nazis to recieve political power in the German Parliament. The Vatican entered into a concordat with Hitler [which was signed in the Vatican by Von Papen and Cardinal Secretary of State: Eugenio Pacelli (later Pope Pius XII), on July 20, 1933], as with Mussolini, Franco and Salazar. Von Papen was the personal advisor to Pope Pius XII. even “The SS had been organized by [Heinrich] Himmler according to the principles of the Jesuit Order. The rules of service and spiritual exercises prescribed by Ignatius de Loyola [Ed. Note: the founder of the Jesuit Order] constituted a model which [Heinrich] Himmler strove carefully to copy. Absolute obedience was the supreme rule every order had to be executed without comment.” – Walter Shellenberg (Chief of the Nazi Sicherheitdienst) Quote by Spanish dictator (Francisco Franco “Adolf Hitler, son of the Catholic Church, died while defending Christianity. It is therefore understandable that words cannot be found to lament over his death, when so many were found to exalt his life. Over his mortal remains stands his victorious moral figure. With the palm of the martyr, God gives Hitler the laurels of Victory”. – Spanish dictator (Francisco Franco, Knight of the Order of Christ) published on the 3rd of May 1945, the day of Hitler’s death. (“Reforme”, 21st of July 1945.) “Fascism is the regime that corresponds most closely to the concepts of the Church ofRome.” – Quote Civilta Cattolica (House organ of the Jesuits) Even his Mein Kampf book

was written, for Hitler, by German Jesuit Staempfle So, a Vatican/Nazi link is for real. The great author Jack Chick is absolutey correct to point to the Holocaust as a 20th century Inquisition. William (“Wild Bill”) Joseph Donovan

is an elite Vatican personage. Donovan was a dedicated Roman Catholic until his death. He was the leader of the OSS. The OSS was the precursor of the CIA. Donovan was also a member of Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity, and he graduated from Columbia in 1905. Being a veteran of WWI, he will get an abundant of military including intelligence experience in his life. He was awarded the Lateran medal and the Knight Grand Cross of the Order of St. Sylvester. Many other Directors of the CIA would be ironically Knights of Malta like William Casey World War II ended in 1945 and the Nuremberg trials commenced. Roman Catholic Chris Dodd’s father Thomas J. Dodd worked in the trials against the Nazis. Dodd worked with high level Freemason Robert H. Jackson. 33rd Degree Freemason Edward Carter was a 5th judge in the Nuremberg Tribunal. Jesuit priest Edmund Walsh had a big role in the Nuremberg trials by advising Robert Jackson. Walsh was a friend of 33rd Degree Freemason Douglas MacArthur and other elites. High level Jesuit Walsh wore an officer’s uniform when he apprehended General Karl Haushofer in Bavaria for interrogation at Nuremberg. The Jesuit Edmund Walsh had chatted with Grigori Zinoviev, who was president of the Petrograd Soviet. This proves that high level Jesuits and high level Freemasons worked together for centuries on many endeavors. That is why Knight of Malta Franz von Papen was acquitted in Nuremberg.as a high level knight of malta he was above prosecution The Vatican Ratline allowed the Vatican to make Nazi (plus Ustashi) fascist war criminals to escape justice. They were smuggled into Argentina, Bolivia, Paraguay, Australia, Canada and of course the U.S. Mark Aarons and John Loftus wrote a book entitled, “Unholy Trinity” exposing the Ratlines. Nazi General and war criminal Reinhard Gehlen would work with the CIA. Gehlen also was given the highest honor of the Knights of Malta called the “Grand Cross of Merit” award. Knight of Malta J. Peter Grace would be a key figure in Operation Paperclip where Nazis war criminals were sent into America for technological reasons. According to State Department documents, Angleton decided to give money to an organization called Catholic Action and use it to help the right-wing win elections in Italy. The author Ralph Epperson documented in his literature about how the U.S. government covertly gave information about atomic weaponry to the Soviets. This is one out of enumerable examples proving that the Cold War an utter hoax. Fidel Castro was trained by Catholic. Many Catholic bishops opposed Castro’s dictatorship. For example Miguel Angel Loredo, a Catholic priest, was arrested by the Cubans and sent to prison. He was beaten severely by Cuban prison guards and lay hospitalized. Although, the leadership of the Vatican supported Castro clearly. Monsignor Cesar Zachi was the Vatican’s ambassador to Cuba. As the official representative of the Catholic Church, Zachi avidly supported the communism of Fidel Castro.

Zachi extolled the virtues of the communist revolution and continually asked the young people in Cuba to join the communist revolutionary militia. In fact, Fidel Castro was the guest of honor at Zachi’s episcopal consecration. Fidel Castro was the honored guest of the Pope John Paul II at the Vatican in November of 1996 and the pope in turn visited Castro in Cuba in January 1998. Both meetings were marked by cordiality, which puzzled and upset many in the American Cuban community, who don’t yet understand the close ties between communists and the Vatican. The late John Paul II opposed the embargo against CubaThe Ecumenical Movement and the Modern World The Modern Ecumenical Movement was invented by the Vatican via Vatican II Council in the early 1960′s. Around this time, Pope John XXIII was a friend of Liberation Theology. He was Pope from 1958 to 1963 (He wanted to talk to the Communists when components of Communism is apart of the new world order agenda from a central bank to the stealing of private property). Jesuit John Courtney Murray, was called one of the “architects of the Second Vatican Council.” Vatican II’s Dignitatis Humanae Personae claimed to support religious liberty. Yet, Vatican II never revoked the anti-religious freedom proclamations of the Council of Trent. This Vatican II Council promoted false Alexandrian corrupt Bible versions (like the NIV. The NIV is heavily influenced by Papal Knight of St. Gregory Rupert Murdoch. Murdoch had to apologize for a racist cartoon about Obama in the New York Post. The NIV and other modern version omit hundreds of words), and the compromise of many Protestant & Baptist churches. Just recently in 2007, Pope Benedict XVI called non- Catholic churches defective. Therefore, Vatican II wasn’t about reconciliation, it was about Rome trying to control all Christian churches via compromise. Today, famous Ecumenicals include Pat Robertson, Billy Graham, Chuck Colson, even John Hagee, Robert Schuller, and Rick Warren. Billy Graham would praise the Roman Catholic Mass. The late Jerry Falwell was apart of the Moral Majority group. This organization had tons of Roman Catholics in its group. In his January 1985 Moral Majority Report, Falwell called the Pope and Billy Graham great moral and religious leaders. Rick Warren (who loves the modern Bible versions. These versions were pro-Latin Vulgate, pro-Jesuit Council of Trent, Westcott and Hort Greek Text) is a friend of pro-abortion President Barack Obama. Rick Warren is loved by the mainstream media, because he is a 21st century version of a calculating, compromising professing Christian in America. He does talk about controversial issues much and even compared Fundamental Christians to jihadists in an evil way. The Ecumenical movement is about merging Christianity into a global system basically (under the bigger goal of a one world religion. That‘s why there are global religious organizations today wanting this goal including Theosophists). Cardinal Spellman

is an important Cold War figure. In my opinion, he was the most powerful American clergyman of the 20th century. He had ties to the CIA, Chiang Kai-shek, President Roosevelt, MacArthur, the Pentagon, and Wall Street. Cardinal Spellman was nicknamed Cardinal “Moneybags” because of his immense wealth. Pope Pius XII greets Cardinal Spellman of New York City. Cardinal Spellman was a supporter for U.S. military involvement in Vietnam as early as the 1950’s. In the 1960’s, he would call the American soldiers fighting in Vietnam as the “soldiers of Christ.” Cardinal Spellman was pound for pound the most powerful clergyman in America during the 20th century. SMOM is short for the Sovereign Military Order of Malta aka the Knights of Malta.

The USA has its Knights of Malta, some of whom have used their influence to promote right-wing causes in South America (during the Cold War). In Chile, Opus Dei sought support from Chilean bishops for the overthrow of President Salvador Allende. In Chile, Opus Dei worked closely with CIA-funded groups which later merged with the Chilean secret police. John Paul II made Opus Dei a “personal prelature.” John Paul II made Alfonso Lopez Trujillo a cardinal. Lopez Trujillo was a Colombian sympathizer with Opus Dei and an opponent of liberation theology. American Knights of Malta such as William Simon (Citicorp) and Francis X.

Stankard (Chase Manhattan Bank) have spoken at Opus Dei meetings. Presently, the Knights of Malta (who exited since the 1100’s A.D. According to William Cooper and Fritz Springmeier, almost half of the Knights of Malta are in the Black Nobility families) still have great corporate power. Carl Nicholas Karcher (the head of Hardees) and Thomas S. Monaghan (head of Domino’s Pizza) are all Knights of Malta. Knight of Malta Alexandre de Marcendes was in the France intelligence agency called SDECE. Knight of Malta Juan Carlos of Spain today (who is pictured with Bush, Pinochet, and other world leaders. Juan Carlos is a member of the Order of the Garter and the head of the Golden Fleece) is a significant force in Middle East negiotations. The Knights of Malta today are ruled by Matthew Festing, who is the worldwide Grandmaster of the Knights of Malta. The SMOM Joseph E. Schmitz had ties with the mercenary Blackwater organization. Blackwater has been caught murdering Iraqis, even by American investigators. Their leadership has been in controversies spanning years now. SMOM Giscard D’Estaing is a huge promoter of the European Union. An European Union has been a Vatican brainchild for centuries. SMOM Frederic V. Salerno was the President of NYNEX Worldwide Services Group and a Senior Advisor to Gabelli Group Capital Partners.

*The Knights of Malta—has been called“the most exclusive club on earth,” according to Stephen Birmingham, author of Real Lace: America’s Irish Rich. Bush 41 was the Director of the CIA during the 1970’s. He was also awarded the Knight of Malta award of Savoy. He was in WWII, he was a Bonesmen. George H. W. Bush is famous especially for calling for the existence of the new world order in 1990 during his State of the Union Address. He was awarded the Grand Cross of the Order of the Bath One of his sons named Jeb Bush is also a member of the Knights of Columbus. Edward Cardinal Egan of the Archdiocese of New York knighted Salerno to the Order of St. Gregory the Great in 2006. Salerno is on the Board of Viacom and a member of the Board of Hedrick & Struggles. SMOM Joseph A. Unanue is the Founder, Goya Foods the largest Hispanic-owned food company in the U.S. Tom Monaghan is the Founder of Domino’s Pizza. SMOM Geoffrey T. Biois is Trilateral Commission member and a leader in many corporate boards. This shows that Knights of Malta have many ties to the banking international elite. Even Rick Joyner

the false prophet on god tv wich is not gods tv who wrote the jesuit inspired templar / quest , book is a Knight of Malta. He is the Charismatic/Word of Faith/Dominionist proponent. who is really a jesuit agent protestant among protestants He claims to have visions about the Kingdom of God on Earth (being man-made) that going on. This is unscriptural of course. The Jesuit priest Greg Galluzo founded the Gamaliel Foundation. This is a subsidiary of the Ford Foundation. Barack Obama worked for this Gamaliel Foundation in Chicago for years. Furthermore, Ann Dunham, who is Barack Obama’s mother, worked for the Ford Foundation as did the father of Timothy Geithner, Barack Obama’s Secretary of the Treasury. Jesuit trained Jon Favreau is Barack Obama’s chief speechwriter. Obama’s Senior Military and Foreign Policy Advisor, Maj. Gen. J. Scott Gration, was Jesuit-trained. Obama’s National Security Adviser is James L. Jones, who was trained by Jesuits at Georgetown University. Jones is a retired four-star general and formerly served as Supreme Allied Commander Europe (2003-2006). Until a few days ago, Jones was on the board of directors of Boeing, Obama’s Deputy Communications Director, Dan Pfeiffer, was Jesuit-trained. Barack Obama’s CIA pick of Leon Panetta is Jesuit trained (he entered JESUIT Santa Clara University in 1956) as well. Leon Panetta compromise and said that there will be no prosecutions for CIA interrogators who committed torture in the rendition program. It appears that the new Barack Obama administration have as much ties to the Vatican as the previous administration had. It’s apparent that the Vatican/Jesuit goal of ruling the world under the Papacy hasn’t ceased to function. This information about the Vatican’s manipulation of world events (with the influence of the Jesuit/Vatican network) is not shown in the mainstream media. Tony Blair is another prominent Roman Catholic. He is known for supporting immoral war in Iraq and expanding the police state in Britian to unheard of levels. Blair has been speaking across the world now to promote ecumenicalism and the new world order. That is why he is partnering with the Yale University Schools of Management and Divinity. Blair is doing this order to make his “The Tony Blair Faith Foundation” to use “education” as a means to bring about the New World Order. Tony Blair is a supporter of the pro-Knight of Malta Carlyle Group (with members like Roman Catholic Frank C. Carclucci and Knight of Malta award receiver George H. W. Bush. Bush would support the new world order via a famous speech in 1990. That’s why the leadership of America, Saudi Arabia, and even Israel work together. For example, the Bush family, the Bin Ladens, and Bandar all worked together in business endeavors for decades). In 1957 a treaty was signed in Rome that every man, woman and child in the United Kingdom will regret as long as they live.

It was called the Treaty of Rome

and marked the formation of what was then termed, “The Common Market.” Ted Heath, Prime Minister at the time, now member of the papal order of the garter ruled by the monarchy wich really governs westminster took this country into the common
Ted Heath as other prime ministers are subordinate to the british monarchy

market soon after. Today the European Union has taken over this country lock, stock and barrel! If you listen to the controlled media, you could easily assume that the European Union was a wholly secular entity. You would be gravely mistaken. The power behind the Union, is not a bunch of politicians, it is in fact being steered by no other than the harlot church of the book of Revelation. The Jesuit order are the puppet masters pulling the strings of every nation state in the union. We need to understand that there is something very sinister happening before our very eyes that will spell trouble for every true follower of Jesus Christ in this country as well as every nation in this amalgam of countries. The power behind Europe is the Jesuit Order. the Jesuit oath:

“I furthermore promise and declare that I will, when opportunity present, make and wage relentless war, secretly or openly, against all heretics, Protestants and Liberals, as I am directed to do, to extirpate and exterminate them from the face of the whole earth and that I will spare neither age, sex or condition and that I will hang, waste, boil, flay, strangle and bury alive these infamous heretics, rip up the stomachs and wombs of their women and crush their infants’ heads against the walls, in order to annihilate forever their execrable race. That when the same cannot be done openly, I will secretly use the poisoned cup, the strangulating cord, the steel of the poniard or the leaden bullet, regardless of the honor, rank, dignity, or authority of the person or persons, whatever may be their condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time may be directed so to do by any agent of the Pope or Superior of the Brotherhood of the Holy Faith, of the Society of Jesus”
If you care to take the time to research what the Roman Catholic Institution have been up to in the last 60 to 70 years, you will find that she is as much a ravenous wolf now, as she was in the days covered by Foxes Book of Martyrs.


The Oath administered to the Illuminati is based upon the Oath of the Jesuits

Before the Oath is administered it is said —a sword is pointed at the breast:

"Shouldst thou become a traitor or perjurer, let this sword remind thee of each and all the members in arms against thee. Do not hope to find safety whithersoever thou mayest fly, shame and remorse as well as the vengeance of thine unknown brothers will torture and pursue thee."

Then in the Oath which follows he swears:

". . . Eternal silence, and faithfulness and everlasting obedience to all superiors and regulations of the Order. I also renounce my own personal views and opinions as well as all control of my powers and capacities. I promise also to consider the well-being of the Order as my own, and I am ready, as long as I am a member, to serve it with my goods, my honour, and my life . . . If I act against the rules and well-being of the Society, I will submit myself to the penalties to which my superiors may condemn me . . ."

"In the name of the son crucified (i.e. the Pentagram, the illuminised man), swear to break the bonds which still bind you to your father, mother, brothers, sisters, wife, relatives, friends, mistresses, kings, chiefs, benefactors, and all persons to whomsoever you may have promised faith, obedience, and service. Name and curse the place where you were born, so that you may dwell in another sphere, to which you will attain only after having renounced this pestilential globe, vile refuse of the heavens! From this moment you are free from the so-called oath to country and laws: swear to reveal to the new chief, recognised by you, what you may have seen or done, intercepted, read or heard, learned or surmised, and also seek for and spy out what your eyes cannot discern. Honour and respect the Aqua Tofana (i.e. an imperceptably slow poison) as a sure, prompt, and necessary means of purging the globe by death of those who seek to vilify the truth and sieze it from our hands. Fly from Spain, Naples, and all accursed land finally fly from the temptation to reveal what you may hear, for the thunder is no prompter that the knife, which awaits you in whatsoever place you may be. Live in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (The Trinity of Illuminism—Cabalistic and Gnostic. The Father—the generating fire the Holy Spirit—the Great Mother Nature, reproducing all things the Son—the manifestation, the vital fluid, the astral light of Illuminism)."

Unknown to the members of these various secret societies seeking "Illumination" and "deification," their masters are the Cabalistic Jew, the originator of Gnostic mysticism. (Please see the text that follows).

"The three forms of initiation—individual, group, or universal—all lead to conscious or unconscious control by a central power, who in some mysterious way makes its influence felt often clairvoyantly and clairaudiently seen and heard, but never physically present or visible. the system in all three is the same—cabalistic. Secretly here and there individuals are prepared these again form groups or centres from which influences spread until they form a network covering the entire world. Like rays from a hidden sun these groups are apparently divergent and detatched, but in reality all issue from the same central body. The system is seen to be an insidious and secret dissemination of ideas, orienting and breaking down all barriers of family, religion, morality, nationality, and all self-initiative thought, always under the cloak of a new and more modern religion, new thought, new morality, a new heaven and a new earth until it evolves a gigantic robot merely answering to the will and commands of a secret Master Mind. They dream they are free, original, self-determining individuals they are but the negative moon reflecting and reproducing the light from the same hidden and cabalistic Sun. It is called regeneration by the Illuminati it is in truth individual death and disintegration, followed by a resurrection as negative "light-bearers" of this cabalistic dark Sun whose Luciferian "Grand Plan" is world domination." (Anonymous, Light-bearers of Darkness, The Christian Book Club of America, p105).

The Jewish Encyclopaedia points out that Gnosticism "was Jewish in character long before it became Christian," and quotes the opinion, "a movement closely connected with Jewish mysticism." The Freemason Ragon says: "The Cabala is the key of the occult sciences. The Gnostics were born of the Cabalists."

Rabbi Benamozegh says, "Those who will take the trouble to examine with care the connection between Judaism and philosophic Freemasonry, theosophy, and the mysteries in general . . . will cease to smile in pity at the suggestion that Cabalistic theology may have a role to play in the religious transformations of the future. . . . It contains the key to the modern religious problem" (Anonymous, Light-bearers of Darkness, The Christian Book Club of America, p11).

"Chaldean thought acted powerfully upon orthodox Judaism and determined the growth of a sect in its midst which was to transform Israel. . . . This sect was that of the Pharisees. . . . What they borrowed (from the Chaldeans) in fact . . . was the essence of the Pantheistic doctrine . . . It was then that was formed from these borrowings that Kabalah of the Pharisees which was for long transmitted orally from Master to disciple, and was, 800 years later, to inspire the compilation of the Talmud, and found its completest expression in the Sepher ha Zohar. . . . This religion of the 'Deified Man,' with which they were impregnated in Babylon, was only conceived as benefiting the Jew, superior and predestinated being. . . ." (M. Flavien Bernier, Les Juifs et le Talmud, 1913).

The Jewish writer Bernard Lazare said, "It is certain that there were Jews even at the cradle of Freemasonry—Cabalistic Jews, as it is proved by certain existing rites . . . The Jew is also a builder: proud, ambitious, domineering, he tries to draw everything to himself. He is not satisfied with de-Christianising, he Judaises he destroys the Catholic or Protestant faith, he provokes indifference, but he imposes his idea of the world, of morals, and of life upon whose faith he ruins he works at his age-old task—the annihilation of the religion of Christ!"

Mrs. Nesta Webster in Secret Societies and Subversive Movements, writes:

"The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion have been marvellously correct as prophecy, foreshadowing all of this in a remarkable way, whatever their first origin, before Maurice Joly used part of them in 1864."

"Dr. Ranking, who has devoted many years of study to the question . . . in a very interesting paper published in the masonic journal, Ars Quatuor Coronatorum, observes: 'That from the very commencement of Christianity there has been transmitted through the centuries a body of doctrine incompatible with Christianity in the various official Churches. That the bodies teaching these doctrines profess to do so on the authority of St. John, to whom, as they claimed, the true secrets had been committed by the Founder of Christianity, that during the Middle Ages, the main support of the Gnostic bodies and the main repository of this knowledge (Johannism) was the Society of the Templars.' And he further said, 'The record of the Templars in Palestine is one long tale of intrigue and treachery on the part of the Order'."

In his History of Magic, Eliphas Levi informs us:

"The Templars had two doctrines: one was concealed and reserved to the leaders, being that of Johannism the other was public, being Roman Catholic doctrine. . . The Johannism of the adepts was the Kabalah of the Gnostics, but it degenerated speedily into a mystic pantheism carried even to idolatry of Nature and hatred of all revealed dogma. . . They fostered the regrets of every fallen worship and the hopes of every new cultus, promising to all liberty of conscience and a new orthodoxy which should be the synthesis of all persecuted beliefs. They went even so far as to recognise the pantheistic symbolism of the grand masters of Black Magic . . . they rendered divine honours to the monstrous idol Baphomet."
