The Jesuit Order, or The Society of Jesus, also called "Jesuits" today, was founded by a man named Ignatius of Loyola, born in 1491. He maintained a military career as a Spanish knight until he was severely wounded at the Battle of Pamplona in 1521. While he was in recovery, he supposedly went through some sort of "spiritual conversion". He then combined his military experience with his newfound religious conversion to decide that his religion needed "an army". Thus, he created The Society of Jesus under the banner of Roman Catholicism. With several of his companions he formed the Jesuit Order in 1534 and it was officially commissioned and sanctioned by Pope Paul III in 1540. Ignatius was also commissioned by the Pope to reorganize the "Bank of Rome" in 1540. In its early stages, just after they were reorganizing the Bank of Rome, they began ruthlessly taking over Education. Taking over the schools and the colleges would allow them access to change teachings. What to you think happened to the United States education system? The playbook of the Jesuits combined with the Catholic Church taking over education is exactly the playbook used by the United States Government in taking over it education system, changing the curriculum to teach their agendas in moving the United States to a socialist (one control party point) society.
What we find is the primary purpose of the Jesuit Order was to serve as the Pope’s deterrent to the Protestant Reformation, which revealed the truth about the Roman Catholic Church as being antichrist and the pope that Paul spoken about as being the “Man of sin.” It was the Roman Catholic Church plan to bring the entire world back to the Roman Catholic Church.
"I do declare from my heart, without mental reservation, that the Pope is Christ's Vicar General and ... He hath power to depose Heretical Kings, Princes, States ... that they may safely be destroyed. Therefore, to the utmost of my power I will defend this doctrine ... I do further declare the doctrine of the Church of England, of the Calvanists [sic], the Huguenots, and other Protestants to be damnable and those to be damned who will not forsake the same. I do further declare that I will help, assist, and advise all or any of His Holiness agents in any place wherever I shall be; and to do my utmost to extirpate [exterminate] the heretical Protestant doctrine, and to destroy all their pretended power." (The Jesuit Oath, as taken from Political and Economic Handbook by Thomas Edward Watson in 1916, p. 437)
The Jesuit Order would become the Papacy's Counter-Reformation. The Reformation, started by reformed Catholics such as Martin Luther, began as a wave of truth in the 1500's, calling out and exposing the abominable heresies of the Catholic Church. It was mostly through the Papacy's selling of "indulgences", or certificates of pardon, that the Reformation was flamed to life. Luther was outraged when members of the university were handing him these "requests for pardon of sin". He quickly told them that unless they actually repent of their sins, coming before the Throne of Grace for forgiveness, they would unfortunately perish in those sins. He began teaching people that the grace of God cannot be purchased, that God's grace is a FREE GIFT. His opposition to Catholic doctrines began riling up the entire Catholic Order against him.
This is a condition that we have today in the church. When the Holy Spirit reveals great truth to us and calls us to spread the gospel of Discipleship to individuals and nations, the enemy (Satan and the governments at large) will stir up the evils powers of this world against us. We, at that moment in time, remember our Obedience Covenant and rely on God in these situations and not on our own wisdom. It is only through Him we will be successful.
