What we find when we look at the top of the world power structure is a group of individuals that call themselves The Jesuits. This is a group of people that scriptures do not identify directly. This is a group that didn’t exist in ancient history. So just who are they and when did they come into existence.
Why was the Jesuit Order Created?
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 do 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 its 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 had 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 evil 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.
The Jesuits' Banking Scheme
The Church of Rome reorganized Bank, by the Jesuits, began branching out and opening various offices in Europe. Some of the banks they opened up: Venice (1587) The Wisselbank in Amsterdam (1609) Hamburg (1619) Nuremberg (1621) Rotterdam (1635) Bank of England (1694).
The Bank of England, having its model after the Bank of Rome and created by the Jesuits, actually became the world's first Central Bank. This central bank began the process of issuing "notes", charging interest on the entire capital they loaned to the English Parliament. This began a recurring debt for England, as there would be no way for them to fully repay their lenders, thus putting the power of the country of England into the hands of the Jesuits, who controlled the Central Bank.
Friends, it is for this very reason - the usury of the central bank in England - that the American Colonists sought freedom from England and the reason for the Revolutionary War!
"That is simple. In the Colonies, we issue our own paper money. It is called 'Colonial Scrip.' We issue it in proper proportion to make the goods and pass easily from the producers to the consumers. In this manner, creating ourselves our own paper money, we control its purchasing power and we have no interest to pay to no one." (Ben Franklin speaking about the use of Colonial Scrip)
"The Colonies would gladly have borne the little tax on tea and other matters had it not been the poverty caused by the bad influence of the English bankers on the Parliament, which has caused in the Colonies hatred of England and the Revolutionary War." (Ben Franklin speaking about the real cause of the Revolutionary War - banking control)
"The refusal of King George III to allow the colonies to operate an honest money system, which freed the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators was probably the prime cause of the revolution." (Ben Franklin on the corruption of the Bank of England)
The central banking system that exists in our world today is merely the same central banking system modeled after the original Bank of Rome, and the Jesuits control it, as they always have.
The Jesuits' Influence on Modern Christianity
So many Christians today do not know where many of the most commonly accepted beliefs even came from, or why they were developed. Throughout the dark ages, the Papacy resorted to very open and obvious brutal and cruel tactics of attempting to fully wipe out all Bible-believing "heretics". The development of the Protestant Reformation proved to the Papacy that these tactics would not suffice any longer, but would only more strongly affirm what the Reformers were illustrating - that the Catholic Church system IS the harlot church, the true Antichrist.
Brutal extinguishment would not work. More subtle tactics were needed. The prophecies unveiled in the book of Daniel fully confirm the Papacy as the Biblical Antichrist. The Papacy needed to divert attention AWAY from them, to cause a curious world to look in many different directions, just not on them! This is where the Jesuits would come in handy.
A MAJOR problem for the Papacy was the 1260-year identification time period in scripture, the "time, times, and dividing of a time" which denotes the time of the Papacy's iron grip on the world. A new "interpretation" of this 1260-year time period would need to be invented, AND a new Antichrist figure would also need to go along with the story as well.
It was at this time that Jesuit priests began writing theology commentary about Futurism and Preterism. The purpose of these commentaries was to take the focus off of the Catholic Church about being antichrist. How very convenient for the Papacy. The Jesuits interpretation would take the focus off of the antichrist and the issues with Catholic Church.
The Jesuit Controlled the Council of Trent
The Jesuits actually controlled the direction of the Council of Trent. Through their spokesman, the Archbishop of Reggio, they sought to completely reinstate the authority of the Church above the Word of God. Read this part of the Archbishop's speech on January 18, 1562 to also see something very interesting he states:
[col. 529] Such is the condition of the heretics of this age that on nothing do they rely more than that, under the pretense of the word of God, they overthrow the authority of the church; as though the church, His body, could be opposed to the word of Christ, or the head to the body. On the contrary, the authority of the church, then, is illustrated most clearly by the Scriptures; for while on the one hand she recommends them, declares them to be divine, [col. 530] offers them to us to be read, in doubtful matters explains them faithfully, and condemns whatever is contrary to them; on the other hand, the legal precepts in the Scriptures taught by the Lord have ceased by virtue of the same authority. The Sabbath, the most glorious day in the law, has been changed into the Lord's day. Circumcision, enjoined upon Abraham and his seed under such threatening that he who had not been circumcised would be destroyed from among his people, has been so abrogated that the apostle asserts: "If ye be circumcised, ye have fallen from grace, and Christ shall profit you nothing." These and other similar matters have not ceased by virtue of Christ's teaching (for He says He has come to fulfill the law, not to destroy it), but they have been changed by the authority of the church. Indeed, if she should be removed (since there must be heresies), who would set forth truth, and confound the obstinacy of heretics? All things will be confused, and soon heresies condemned by her authority will spring up again.
Not only was the Papacy able to elevate church tradition above the Scriptures, but he also convinced the council that "the Lord's Day" (Sunday) should still be the official day of Christians! Furthermore, the Jesuits pressed on, going to Douay and Rheims in France and had the Bible translated into the English language under the guise of the corrupt Latin Vulgate. Corrupting God's Word would allow them to corrupt the Christian faith.
With every action, there is an equal but opposite reaction. Through God's merciful guidance, the Reformers' inspiration led to the completion of the King James Version of the Bible, which was completed in 1611.
The Devil could not allow the KJV to remain as the primary Bible for Christians, especially for the end times. Thus, the Archbishop of Canterbury also began a revision of the KJV in the 1870s. Two important Jesuit-inspired figures were the writers of this revision - Doctors Brooke Westcott and Fenton Hort. These two men made sure than the translators of this new "revised" version completely avoided and ignored the correct Eastern manuscripts upon which the KJV was based, and they incorporated the ever-perverted Western ones, which had already been proven to remove the deity of Jesus Christ and supported the initiatives of the Papacy.
From this work, the Revised Version of 1881 was born! At first, it merely attempted to rival the KJV. However, by the mid-20th Century, the Revised Standard Version (RSV) became the most popular version in modern Christendom. This effect saw the Jesuits' hard work come to complete fruition!
Friends, for proper Bible study, avoid using any of these "newer" versions such as: - New International Version (NIV) - New English Bible - New Life Version - New Living Translation - The Message - New Century Version - Revised Standard Version (RSV) - Easy-To-Read Version
