The Eternal Sacrifice:

The Sacrifice of the Mass is the "eternal and permanent sacrifice" of Num.28:1-6 and Ex.29:38-43:

Numbers 28:1-6 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Command the children of Israel, and say unto them, My offering, and my bread for my sacrifices made by fire, for a sweet savour unto me, shall ye observe to offer unto me in their due season. And thou shalt say unto them, This is the offering made by fire which ye shall offer unto the LORD; two lambs of the first year without spot day by day, for a continual burnt offering. The one lamb shalt thou offer in the morning, and the other lamb shalt thou offer at even; And a tenth part of an ephah of flour for a meat offering, mingled with the fourth part of an hin of beaten oil.  It is a continual burnt offering, which was ordained in mount Sinai for a sweet savour, a sacrifice made by fire unto the LORD.

Exodus 29:38-43 Now this is that which thou shalt offer upon the altar; two lambs of the first year day by day continually. The one lamb thou shalt offer in the morning; and the other lamb thou shalt offer at even: And with the one lamb a tenth deal of flour mingled with the fourth part of an hin of beaten oil; and the fourth part of an hin of wine for a drink offering. And the other lamb thou shalt offer at even, and shalt do thereto according to the meat offering of the morning, and according to the drink offering thereof, for a sweet savour, an offering made by fire unto the LORD. This shall be a continual burnt offering throughout your generations at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the LORD: where I will meet you, to speak there unto thee.

   43And there I will meet with the children of Israel, and the tabernacle shall be sanctified by my glory.

The Roman Catholic Church has been the Protestant Church’s whipping boy for almost 500 years.  Ignorant and lying men with personal agenda’s of padding their pews and adding stature to where no stature was due have accused these people of every ill that was in the Church.  Since my days in bible school starting 1976 I began a search in earnest to find people that had the Holy Spirit prophesied and spoke in tongues. I was seeking at the time to find out if the outpouring that the Apostle Peter spoke of that was for: 

Acts 2:38-40 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shall call.

The conceit of the Pentecostal movement at that time and still is that NEVER has such a thing happened since the day of Pentecost.

They also in another or many erroneous doctrinal statements tell us that all the gifts of the spirit were demonstrated in the Old Testament in the Prophets but on the day of Pentecost God did a “new thing” and that new thing was the gift of tongues. (On this error I have written a lengthy rebuttal titled “This is That.” In which I go into the Hebrew and Greek Septuagint and trace out the prophetic and the use of tongues in the Old Testament and In Christ Himself.

So in those early days I reveled at each discovery of a new group in Church History that moved in the spirit and overtime this joy became sorrow as I became aware that God has moved again and again and again and that every single time men came in and corrupted it. Hence all our dead denominations and churches. This brought a further insight that the apostasy or the way these churches felling away has been largely the same  -- and that in itself speak of design not accident. 

 So in my last two years God focused me on the events of the Protestant revival of the 1500’s particularly on Luther, Simons, Calvin and to a lesser degree Zwingli. And the falling away of the early Church

I recommend for a fuller understanding of the issues that are at stake here you go to this websites ancient documents section and read Origen’s commentary on John Book 1. Briefly Origen in the year 230 tells us that the Church of his day has established an order of Levites.  This was due to the common believers being so carnal in the generation prior to him that the Church leaders saw that people were not praying, not seeking God not reading the bible and thereby they had deserted their call as a “Kingdom of Priests” So prior to Origen there had been a council of which there is no record I am aware where an order of Old Covenant Levites were called into service to seek God and do the spiritual sacrifices that were due into him. 

So I will arbitrarily place this momentously bad event at the year 200 – this is 130 before the rise of the Roman catholic Church. Now with the coming of Levites what MUST Levites have in order to do service unto God? The answer is an Altar.

Historically we have two events that verify that this occurred at the time of the Levites being introduced to the Clesia. First in the Latin bible and simultaneously in all the ancient European languages a mysterious non biblical word and designation for God people was introduced – the word in English is Church. The Word Church is not an ordinary word in that it is not a Latin word so it does not follow any Latin rules of etymology or use. We are told it comes from the Greek but the is not a clean Greek word it is a corruption of two words. We are told by scholars that Latin word for Church come from the Greek words: oikios – house of   and Kurios – Lord. But the spelling of CIR or CER  is NOT consistent with the Greek KUR for Kurios.  Though it is consistent with another Greek word Kerios   And on this point our scholars are sllent because at first glace is seems nonsensical  Kerios mean Horn  Kerias mean little horn. It is used of the little lamb in revelation that had seven little kerias on its head so the word Church should be rendered the Okios Kerios – the house of Horn but I will add here the real meaning his the house of the altar – see the altar that was used by the Levites had a horned on each corner it was a horned altar. So this elevates the word Church to the House of the Altar.

Now historically right around the target year of 200 AD we find a third cord to verify these things. I found it in regard to looking up tithing and offerings. Around the year 200 we find the appearance of a physical altar in the house of God on which were placed offering of fruit and grain and the like for the priest to eat, and dispense to the widows the fatherless and the poor.

The coming of the Levites in the Church and Their Altar was such a momentous occasion that it was inserted into the Lain bible forever Changing the holy designation of God’s people as the Ekklesia (The Out called of the called) to Church those of House of the Levitical altar

Origen Further states that in his day he found the Levites that were set in so contemptible and backslidden (that should be of no surprise since these people were selected from among the carnal people of a decade earlier.)  Origen proposes in this same document that the Church establish an order of high priests to keep the Levites in line.

Mind you all this transpired in less than three generations after the death of the apostle John. So to set the record straight the Catholic Church did not invent either the Levites the Altar or and order of High priests these were all handed to them.

My sense is that when the catholic Church came into being these people were filled with great fear – And I have found quotes from several declaring that the Church was all but lost at it founding and there was a call from several influential members of that day to repent and return to the church of the early apostolic fathers. But that call went unheeded

What the Catholic Church did do was to slow the rate of decline by enshrining certain doctrine and we owe them a debt of gratitude for these same people gave us our only book of Church history for the first three centuries, they set about preserving what manuscripts were left from the first 300 years and they put together the canon of Scripture without which no one would have a new testament today.

This is not to gloss over all the murder evil and harlotries the catholic church committed but as believers we can not tell lies to establish truth. That is the way of darkness. We can not preach the Gospel through deceitfulness as others have done before us. We need to walk in the light as He is in the light.

So we now can see in some measure now how the catholic church came to the erroneous understanding that the mass was part of the the Levitical continual sacrifice before God --

On earth:: If it is "permanent", is got to be now, and it is!, in the daily Holy Sacrifice of the Eucharist, and not only twice a day as in Num.28, but over 500,000 times a day, every day!

In Heaven: And if it is "eternal", is got to be eternally in Heaven, and it is!, "the lamb standing, like slaughtered" of Rev.5:6, just in the center of the Throne of Heaven, the reason of all praise and joy and singing of the saved for an eternity.

Revelation 5:6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
The word horns here in the Greek is “Kerias” which literally means “little horns” I find it interesting that this article cites this verse in reference to the continual sacrifice. 

The Eucharist, the Perpetual Sacrifice, will be abolished when the Antichrist comes

Matthew 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

Daniel 8:11 Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of the sanctuary was cast down.

Daniel 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

Daniel 11:31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.

Daniel 12:11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.

... it is a pity that for many Christian churches, the Antichrist has already come.

1 John 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

... they already do not have the daily sacrifice, the regular burnt offering... no altar, no priest, no tabernacle ...
From the above explanation you can more easily read into the mind set of this author.  You can see why the Levites, their altar, and their sacrifice, is the core to what this person believes Christianity is.  And that without the sanctity of the church that is to say the sanctity of Altar, the sanctity of their priests and the sanctity of their offerings -- the church is nothing. 

I don't know how the Jews can understand Psalm 2 when God says: "You are my son... you shall brake them with a rod of iron, and shatter them in pieces like a potter's vessel" (Ps.2:7,9).

I understand it reading the Book of Revelation when it says, "the Son of Man... out of his mouth came a sharp sword, double-edged"...

Revelation 1:16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.

The "sword" is the love of God, and the two edges are his "suffering" in the Cross, and his "humility" in the Eucharist.
This is a bit too twisted for my mind – I can not grasp the leaps the writer makes in connecting these dots. I have heard similar sentiments from born again Spirit-filled disciples of Madam Guyon. All this indicates to me is that these thoughts have been in Catholic theology for quite some time 

The "rod of iron" is his love in the Cross and in the Eucharist... day by day, from the humble throne of the Eucharist he is shattering into pieces our pride, and now, at the Third Millennium, without noise, we are already 2 billion Christians all over the world!.

Before we move on I want you to realize that this notion of that the writer has expressed of this Levitical priesthood and a continual Levitical offering has been going on now for about 1700-1800 years.

We need to pause here to gain a perspective on this.

How many years where there kings in Israel – The answer is only 509 years. That is almost the same amount of time today since the reformation began. If you compare the number of years of this continual offering of the Mass, with the reformation of the kingdom of Israel the Mass has been going on three time longer than either one of them.

There was a period of almost 400 years in Israel that was without prophet between Haggai and John the Baptist the length of the continual sacrifice is over 4 times longer than that.

The years from the birth of Moses all the way to the death of Christ total 1600 years exactly and this Sacrifice has gone on longer than that.

To picture the full length of this oblation that has been offered, you would have to go from the death of Christ back to when Issac married Rebecca to equal the length of time that has passed

And it should be of interest to note that the Ek-klesia has been without Apostle and Prophet for almost the same length of time. And that in itself should be an indicator that perhaps on the Protestant side of the equation – things may not be doing as well for the last 500 years as we may have been saying. We have talked a good game but I fear our words have been found empty and wanting before God

See what happened in the 1500’s was a “reformation” not a lets can everything and see if we can start it all over again. Neither Calvin nor Luther wanted to leave the Catholic Church because they liked much of what it was. And we need to not that these and the others that associated with them were called reformers. – In other words Protestantism is reformed branches if Roman Catholicism, or in modern terms Roman Catholic-lite.

The founders of the reformation unknown to you were all Roman Catholic Priests and they wanted to change certain things not the whole lump.

They did not redo the church from scratch and return the God of Jesus and the Apostles. What no one has seemed to realize is that not one of these men has a visitation from Christ or an angel of God. Not a single one of these men had a visions and dreams nor did a single one of these men have the operation of the Gifts of the spirit in their life.

What happened in the reformation was a corporate restructuring leaving the principal doctrinal assets and attributes in tact.  The Catholics have priests we have priests. In most Churches the priests do the pray, study the word, teach, while a half hearted laity come in once a week receive some mild refreshment.

The Catholic Church has their altars, and the protestant church also have altars for what purpose? Even in fundamentalist and Pentecostal churches the last vestiges of the sins of our fathers remain firmly in place to this day. But to what end?

 I could go on in greater detail but I will not here. I am only seeking to point out that things are a lot different than we have been told.  And further that much of our teachings today were derived of the poison tree from these four main reformers.

And if we with glee say God is displeased with the Roman Catholics, then for continuing in many of their same sins and traditions of the Catholic church God is then equally displeased with us. We need to start to ask some tough questions like why do we believe what we believe? Why do we do this? If not by Christ and the Apostles then where was this first suggested?   And above all we need to meditate on how are we different than Christ and the Apostles.

Unless we persevere we will not be able to overcome the ever evolving doctrines and traditions of men in our day.  And God will not open our eyes on these matters and we will begin to discern between the holy and the profane, the righteous and unrighteous.   

The Antichrist and the Eucharist:

        - The abolition of the Eucharist will be the first act of the Antichrist
        - The Eucharist is the "restrainer" which withholds the coming of the Antichrist

    "The Abomination of Desolation"

Matthew 24:15-24 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

This is the time of the Coming of the Antichrist... and his very first work will be the abolition of the Eucharist!   

"When you see the Abomination of Desolation, of which Daniel spoke, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand)..." (Matt.24:15).

This Abomination refers to the abolition of the Eternal Sacrifice and the destruction of the Temple and Jerusalem... but Daniel states that "the vision refers to the time of the End" (8:17), and Jesus himself refers us to it in Matt.24:15, and it will be the very first thing the Antichrist will do, the abolition of the Eucharist!, as reported here by Jesus.

We see the abomination of desolation in the taking of Jerusalem in 70 AD and we can say that when the sacrifice of the Jews was ended there –it was ceased with permanence for 1935 years there has been no Jewish sacrifice in the temple at Jerusalem. But we have now been made aware that sometime around 200 AD the backslidden Leaders of the Christians brought in mock –Levites they brought in a mock – Altar and began offering a mock sacrifice and shortly thereafter set in a mock – order or high priests (I remind you it appears that all this was in place long before 330 AD and the Birth of the Roman Catholic Church.

This sacrifice of the Mass, these Levites, this Altar, and these High Priests (Anti –Christs) have from the onset been an abomination to God the Father and Jesus Christ

In Daniel I do not think the Spirit of God was saying the “abomination of desolation “ I think that the spirit of God was saying the “desolation of the abomination.”

Look again at Titus destroying Jerusalem and the Temple in 70 AD – After Christ Had died on the Cross there was no need of Sacrifices – Christ is our burnt offering our peace offering our  drink offering our peace offering etc. The Offerings of the Jews who rejected Christ became a mockery – and abomination and God came with Titus caused it to cease and made the place desolate – to this day.

When The anti Christ shall come he shall lay waste to the city on seven hills Rome and the temple contained therein – the Vatican. For the abominations of this false continual sacrifice that have been preformed there in continually for the last 1800 years. 

All my life I was taught that the Jews were going to be restored and rebuild the temple and set in Levites and offer sacrifices and then and only then will the anti Christ  appear and all eyes have been on Jerusalem since 1948.  But the Spirit of the Lord has clearly shown me that the Jews will not rebuild the temple and that the Temple and desolation of abomination is in Rome and the Vatican.

I will tell you I forsee a great siege on the entire city of Rome as the people come out to defend the “Eternal City” and the Vatican from the Muslim hoards that have come to steal pillage and stamp in pieces the residue – this is the Goal of Mohamedism to exault itself above all that is called God. This is not the Ek-klesia the is the klesia or those that do not know me buy none the less are called by my name or my names sake.

    This "Abomination" in Daniel consists of 5 facts:

        1- "Abolished the perpetual sacrifice" (Dan.8:11): And as a logical consequence, if there is no "sacrifice", there will be no "altar", and     no "priests" to offer it... this is the main and most important feature, described by Daniel in his four descriptions of the Abomination in the Holy Place.  

        2- "Threw down his sanctuary" (Dan.8:11). That would be Vatican city

        3- "Shall destroy the city" (Dan.9:26). That would be Rome

        4- "He magnified himself even to the prince of the host" (Dan.8:11).

        5- By his deceit he shall make some who were disloyal to the covenant apostatize (an.11:26).

    The reign of the Antichrist will last for 7 years, as described in Daniel 8:14 and Revelation 13:5:  The "Abomination" will last for 3˝ years, and the "Great Tribulation" for another 3˝ years, or 42 months, or 1,260 days (Rev.13:5, 11:2-3, 12:5, Dan.12:11-12).

John tells us that the Antichrist is already with us (1Jn.4:3), and Paul says that the Antichrist is already at work (1Thes.2:6-8).
Within the last month I have become convinced that Paul knew that the Church was failing while he was yet alive.

The Jews already have this Abomination: They have no sacrifice, no altar, no priests, no temple... as it was prophesied it will happen after  the coming of the Messiah! (Daniel 8:11-17, 9:26-27, 11:31-32, 12:11). 

For many Protestants this "Abomination" means very little, because they already do not have the "perpetual sacrifice", nor "sanctuary", nor "altar", nor "priests"...

The Orthodox already do not have the "prince of hosts", nor "the city".

Many Catholics may wonder how come the Holy Mass and priests could be abolished... but this already happened partially at the coming of Muhammad when there were 800 Christian bishops in Africa, among them St. Augustine, and in a few years there were reduced to just 5!... the "remnant" always mentions by Isaiah. And when Martin Luther came, in a few years millions of Christians were left without sacrifice, altar, and priests... So, this is what it will happened at the coming of the Antichrist during the Abomination of Desolation, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass will be abolished, and consequently there will be no need for altars nor priests to celebrate it... and, of course, a "remnant" will be left!.

When God brought this article to me it was such a strong confirmation to what he had spoken and already showed me in scripture I was almost beside myself for three days the words of this article boiled in my spirit. The person who is writing is speaking of things that they know not – they were moved to speak several of these things – particularly citing Mohammed –

The Thing about Martin Luther being the anti Christ is not true – that is catholic blind hatred of the man – What Luther Calvin Simons and Zwingli did was to create the great whore’s daughters but in revelation we see that they all share of the same cup of abominations and the blood of those who were killed in the name of the Lord – So from the Divine standpoint the bastardized catholic lite religion that has been replicated in 10,000 protestant denominations with its priests, altars, sacrifices, and sacred rites (Even in Fundamentalist, Pentecostal and Charismatic churches – are still an abomination unto him and HE shall send one in to make war with all this and lay it waste.

The Irony or Ironies is that all of this is anti-Christ and always has been – so when the master –anti-Christ comes forth  he shall be drawn like a magnet to all that is anti-Christ that is the earthly physical church that men have built for the last 1800-1900 years.

    The "restrainer": "the one who holds back the Antichrist":

    St. Paul tells us twice what withholds the Antichrist to appear, in 2Thess.2:6,7... and that "restrainer", "the one who holds back the Antichrist", is Jesus in the Eucharist!... when the Sacrifice of the Holy Eucharist is abolished, the Anti-Christ will appear with full force!... right now, says Paul, the Antichrist, the mystery of iniquity is already at work, but restrained by the Eucharist, and his work will start in full when the Abomination of Desolation comes, when the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the Altar and Priests will be taken away.

The Eucharist is not holding back anything. It is empty and nothing – as is the Protestant version of it.  – That which restrains is not an inanimate stamped piece of bread dough.

It might well be Zerubabel and the two olive trees. In revelation it says the two prophets are the two olive trees and they are killed and them taken away.

    This is how Paul say it in 2Thes.2:6-8:

    6: And now you know what is holding him back (the man of lawlessness), so that he may be revealed at the proper time.

    7: For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back, the restrainer,

will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way.

    8: And then shall that Wicked be revealed...
