Simon Peter From The Bible Bears No Resemblance To The Mythical ‘Pope Peter’ Of The Catholic Church

Official teaching from the Catechism of the Catholic Church boldly declares that the Christian Church is built on ‘pope’ Peter and not on Jesus Christ!

Now there is someone who the Bible says that Jesus did give authority to, and who is the actual leader of the Christian Church. Care to hazard a guess whom that might be? Let the Bible speak

“Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ:” 2 Peter 1:1 (KJV)

The Catholic Church, a counterfeit of the the actual Church that Jesus started, is built largely on myth, superstition and folklore. As we showed you in an earlier article, the actual Mary of the Bible has almost nothing in common with the imaginary ‘mary’ put forth by official Vatican teaching. The Catholic Church performs the same “hatchet job” on the humble fisherman and servant of Jesus Christ, Simon Peter.

Official teaching from the Catechism of the Catholic Church boldly declares that the Christian Church is built, not on the foundation of Jesus Christ, but on Peter! This is what they teach:

Because of the faith he confessed Peter will remain the unshakable rock of the Church. His mission will be to keep this faith from every lapse and to strengthen his brothers in it.286

But the Bible knows nothing about Peter being the “rock” of the Christian Church, not one bit. The Bible says that Jesus the “rock and cornerstone” upon which the entire Christian Church is built and on which it rests. And in what has to be an ironic twist for the Catholic Church, Peter himself says that Jesus is “the rock”, and not him.

“Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.” 1 Peter 1:5,6 (KJV)

Every Christian that ever lived, including all of the apostles, are seen in scripture as ‘lively stones’ who are servants of “the Rock” that is the Lord Jesus. Not only that, after the collapse of the Kingdom Age in Acts 7, Jesus raises up Saul who became Paul to be the actual leader of the Christian Church. The apostle Paul, you may remember, not only is given leadership of the Church, Paul rebukes Peter for his hypocrisy in Galatians.

“But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed. For before that certain came from James, he did eat with the Gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which were of the circumcision. And the other Jews dissembled likewise with him; insomuch that Barnabas also was carried away with their dissimulation. But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews?” Galatians 2:11-14 (KJV)

What is this? The person that the Catholic Church teaches is the “rock” of the Church gets publicly rebuked by Paul for being a hypocrite? You can search all day and all night, and you won’t find that little nugget lurking in the Catholic Catechism.

As the old commercial from the 1970’s used to say, “but wait, there’s more!”

Now there is someone who the Bible says that Jesus did give authority to, and who is the actual leader of the Christian Church. Care to hazard a guess whom that might be? Let the Bible speak.

“At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me. And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest. But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee; Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee, To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision:” Acts 26:13-19 (KJV)

Yep, you guessed it. Paul. The very same Paul that the Catholic Church in no wise acknowledges as the leader of the Church, and whom they place as subservient to Peter. Official Catholic teaching states that Peter was the “first pope”, and that all the Catholic popes are his successors.

So let’s take a quick bullet point look at how no Catholic pope was ever like the apostle Peter.

  • PETER WAS MARRIED: Official Catholic doctrine stating that all priests must be celibate, and every pope that ever lived started out first as a Catholic priest. But Simon Peter was married, as were many of the other apostles. “And when Jesus was come into Peter’s house, he saw his wife’s mother laid, and sick of a fever. And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them.” Matthew 8:14,15 (KJV). If the Catholic Church is ‘following Peter’ as they claim, why then are their leaders forbidden to marry? Paul tells us why. “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.” 1 Timothy 4:1-3 (KJV). As someone who was a Catholic for 30 years before getting saved, I immediately recognized in those verses from Paul that he was describing to a “T” the Roman Catholic counterfeit. Abstaining from meats? I was told to do that every Friday during Lent. Forbidding to marry? Never yet met a Catholic priest who was married. As usual, Paul nails it.
  • PETER SUBMITTED TO THE RULE OF THE KING: The apostle Peter wrote that all Christians should submit themselves to the earthly rule of “kings and governors” in accordance with the will of God for our lives. “Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well. For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:” 1 Peter 2:13-15 (KJV). But Catholic popes do not see themselves this way. When foreign leaders visit the Vatican, they kiss the ring of the pope. The pope bows to no one, and submits himself to no human authority other than his own.
  • PETER TAUGHT THAT CHURCH LEADERS WERE NOT LORDS: Peter’s own writings found in 1 Peter clearly show that Church leaders were to be “humble servants” who were no better than those in their congregations they were leading. Peter said he was an “elder”, just like many of the other elders in the Church. “The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed: Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.” 1 Peter 5:1-4 (KJV). But it is not so in the Catholic Church where the pope declares that he is sitting in the place of Jesus Christ on this Earth!  “For the Roman Pontiff, by reason of his office as Vicar of Christ, and as pastor of the entire Church has full, supreme, and universal power over the whole Church, a power which he can always exercise unhindered.” CCC Article 9, Paragraph 4 882

So as usual, the fixed gulf between what the Bible teaches and what the Catholic Church teaches is a chasm so wide as it beggars description and boggles the mind and imagination. This is why, when Roman declared Christianity to be the “official state religion” in the early 300’s and took over the actual Christian Church, the first thing they did was to remove the scriptures from the hand of the average Christian so they would be intentionally kept ignorant of what the truth was. Schools used to teach this period of time, roughly from the early 400’s to the 1400’s, as the Dark Ages.

When did God allow the lights to be turned on again? Oh, right around 1611.

“Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who may say unto him, What doest thou?” Ecclesiastes 8:4 (KJV)

Why The King James Bible Uses ‘Atonement’ In Romans 5:11 And All The Modern Versions Change It To ‘Reconciliation’ Will Dramatically Increase Your Faith

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

In the Old Testament, sinners made the atonement to God for their sins, but in the New Testament, it is God that makes the atonement for sinners in Romans 5:11.

This is just a quick little Bible study that came to me today via an email question from NTEB’er Jill, who had had a lively discussion with her dad about the wording used by the King James in Romans 5:11. The crux of the conversation centered around why the King James is the only one to use the word ‘atonement’ when all the other version, no exceptions, used the word ‘reconciliation’. In fact, this is the one and only place in the entire New Testament that uses the word ‘atonement’. Certainly, the King James translators must have gotten it wrong if all 250+ other versions disagree. As it turns out yet again, the King James is right, and all the others are predictably wrong. Let’s see why this is.

“And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.” Romans 5:11 (KJB)

The word atonement appears 81 times in the Bible, 80 times in the Old Testament and 1 time in the New Testament. Here’s the breakdown. All 80 places in the Old Testament where ‘atonement’ is mentioned, an atonement is being made, it is being offered. In Romans 5:11, the atonement is being RECEIVED. Huge difference. In the Old Testament, the guilty party is atoning to the offended party, it’s an offering given by sinners to God. In Romans the atonement has been made for us, not by us, the innocent paying a debt He didn’t owe, to us the guilty who have a debt we cannot pay. It’s the exact opposite. What was the atonement in Romans 5:11? It was Jesus Christ Himself! And you want to change that to ‘reconciliation’? Not on my watch, mister.

Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.” 1 Peter 2:24 (KJB)

So Romans 5:11 is MUCH more than a mere reconciliation, we can reconcile lost sinners to Jesus Christ, and in fact we are commanded to. But when we reconcile lost sinners to God by Jesus Christ, we are only able to do that because God has already provided the atonement.

“And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;” 2 Corinthians 5:18 (KJB)

In the Old Testament, atonement was what the people had to do, in the New Testament, ‘do’ has become ‘done’ and now we are told to receive something, not offer something. Now, I wonder who would want you to not know that? Hmm🤔

What do you lose when you have a modern version that steals your ‘atonement’ and gives you ‘reconciliation’ instead? Why, only one of the greatest doctrines anywhere in the whole Bible, that’s all. The doctrine of God not only making an atonement for sins He did not commit, but God becoming the atonement for those sins He did not commit.

  • OLD TESTAMENT: “Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD.” Leviticus 23:27 (KJB)
  • NEW TESTAMENT: “Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” 1 John 4:10 (KJB)

We are reconciled to God through Jesus Christ by the atonement that was made on the cross at Calvary. God’s blood shed to make a payment, an atonement, for the sin of the whole world. If you take out ‘atonement’ from Romans 5:11, you have done despite to the blood!

“Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?” Hebrews 10:29 (KJB)

The Incredible Events Of The Last Supper In The Upper Room Illustrates Perfectly The Revealing Of The Man Of Sin At The Pretribulation Rapture Of The Church

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

At the exact moment Judas goes from being the man of sin to the son of perdition, the scripture sayeth that he immediately goes ‘down and out into darkness’, while the disciples are ‘up in the air’ with Jesus

Many people are puzzled, baffled and otherwise flummoxed when attempting to unravel the end times timeline for the Church given to us prophetically by our apostle Paul in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 in your King James Bible. Over the years, all sorts of crazy interpretations like the falling away is actually the Rapture, the Day of Christ and the Day of the Lord is talking about the same events, and every other type of Laodicean insanity have been put forth to try and make sense of these verses. Of course, you could always just compare scripture with scripture and rightly divide what you read, but that’s too much work, who wants to do that? We do!

“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” 2 Thessalonians 2:1-4 (KJB)

Ok, Bible believers, let’s do this by the numbers. Verse 1 is showing you our ‘gathering together unto him‘, when you compare this to 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18 you see clearly this is a reference to the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church. This also defines the term the ‘day of Christ‘ that we see in verse 2 as also being a reference to the Rapture of the Church. Still with me? So far we haven’t done much interpretation, all we have done is compare scripture with scripture. Verse 3, however, is where most Christians throw up their hands and say “we’re not looking for Antichrist!!” and go back to watching cat videos on YouTube. Just what is Paul talking about when he says the ‘man of sin’ will be revealed just prior to the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church? To answer this perplexing (to some) question, the gospel of John has the answer. (Much of John is addressed to the Church Age, see for yourself here.)

He then lying on Jesus’ breast saith unto him, Lord, who is it? Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon. And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly. He then having received the sop went immediately out: and it was night.” John 13:26,27,30 (KJB)

If you haven’t read our article entitled ‘Does The King James Bible Reveal The Identity Of The Coming End Times Antichrist?’ you might want to take a moment and go read it before continuing with this article. Ok ready? Let’s proceed.

In John 13, always keep an eye out for the number 13 as it is associated with Antichrist almost as much as 666, we see the last supper in the upper room with Jesus, His disciples, and of course, Judas the betrayer. Up to this point in the three and one half year ministry of Jesus, Judas has distinguished himself as the devil that he always was. In fact, you could quite accurately say that Judas was the ‘man of sin’ from the very beginning. One such ‘highlight’ of this is found in the story of Mary of Bethany in John 12:1-8 where we see Judas, the scripture calls him a lying thief, mocking Mary’s incredible sacrifice of her alabaster box. Judas not only mocks it, he is showing unfiltered contempt for the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus as the passage clearly shows you. Judas was always the ‘man of sin’, he was never a good guy, and in the upper room he gets an dubious ‘promotion’ to becoming the Son of Perdition. Ever ask yourself why Jesus would purposely chose Judas as a disciple? One main reason would have to be so there was a type of the tares mixed in with the wheat, the ‘wolf lying down with the lamb’ from Isaiah 11:6. Get it? Good, now back to the events in the upper room as a type of the Rapture of the Church.

The disciples are all asking Jesus who the betrayer is, and Jesus tells them plainly to watch and see who dips the sop in the dish, because that’s the guy. At the moment Judas takes his sop from the dish (SOP is son of perdition, just coincidentally), Satan enters into him and he becomes the Son of Perdition, a type of Antichrist. But watch what happens next. At the exact moment Judas goes from being the man of sin to the son of perdition, the scripture sayeth that he immediately goes ‘down and out into darkness’. Darkness being a type of the time of Jacob’s trouble and the great tribulation. But where are the disciples? They are up in the air with Jesus Christ in the upper room! (if you’re looking for a sign, this is it!)

This is what Paul is talking about in 2 Thessalonians, when the man of sin is revealed, however that happens, the Church will be safely taken UP in the air to be with Jesus Christ. John shows us this in type, Paul shows us this in prophecy, and one day very soon we will live out those verses when our beautiful Saviour, Jesus of Nazareth, catches us up and away to be with Him forever. So where is the exact moment of the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church? It’s contained in the comma between ‘be revealed‘ and ‘the son of perdition‘ in 2 Thessalonians 2:3. There it is, you’re welcome!

Jesus Paid For The Sins Of The Whole World On The Cross At Calvary With The Blood Of God, But John MacArthur Denies These Bedrock Bible Truths

Published

on

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

I cannot imagine any Bible teacher or preacher of the word of God that did not understand that the payment for sin on the cross was the shed blood of Jesus Christ, but end times heretic John MacArthur is one such person.

John MacArthur is a lot of things, but one thing he is not is a Bible believer. Why do I say that? Because John MacArthur denies the main scriptural tenant that clearly and plainly decrees that the payment for sin made on the cross was God’s own blood, shed to redeem sinners. As you will see in the videos below, MacArthur states repeatedly that the “blood of Jesus Christ does not save you”, and he go so far as to say that the blood Jesus shed was not God’s blood. That, my friends, is rank heresy.

“Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.” Acts 20:28 (KJB)

What follows below are my notes from our Sunday Service yesterday, just some quick thoughts I compiled on the blood of Jesus Christ to prepare for yesterday’s message. The evidence that rebukes John MacArthur’s heresy is overwhelming, and the only way you could miss it you’d have to be unsaved. This is no case of “let’s agree to disagree”, not by a long shot, this is rebuking heresy and false teaching that some might be saved. If you believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, the blood of God, cannot save your soul, then you are lost and headed for a fiery Hell. The only payment for your sin God will accept is His own shed blood.

Saved By The Blood Of The Crucified One

The first mention of blood in your King James Bible is the shed blood of an innocent man, who is a type of Jesus Christ, shed by a man who a type of Antichrist. This law of first mention sets the standard for blood all through the scriptures.

“And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground.” Genesis 4:10 (KJB)

In the New Testament, the blood as it relates to the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross, shows you that it is a payment to 1). Build His church, and 2). Make a payment for sin for the whole world.

“Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.” Luke 22:20 (KJB)

“And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Matthew 16:18 (KJB)

The Bible shows us that the death of Jesus on the cross is the vehicle by which the blood was applied as payment, His death itself is not the payment. This is a huge distinction, one that is lost to most Greek and Hebrew scholars of our day. If Jesus had only died in our place on the cross, and not made the payment, then we would remain in our sins with no way to receive salvation. The blood that was shed is eternal, it is God’s blood, and only God’s blood can keep you eternally safe, saved and secure.

“Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.” Acts 20:28 (KJB)

 Jesus on the cross took the punishment we rightly deserve upon Himself, and this is the first Bible doctrine ever mentioned in the Church Age.

“And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest? And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him. The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth: In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth.” Acts 8:30-34 (KJB)

Of course, this is referring to Isaiah 53

“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5 (KJB)


The New Versions Remove The Blood!

  • KJB: “In whom we have redemption through his bloodeven the forgiveness of sins:” Colossians 1:14 (KJB)
  • ESV: “in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” Colossians 1:14 (ESV)

Now, let’s take a look in the writings of Paul to see how important the blood Jesus shed on the cross truly is. It’s so simple, you have to work to miss it.

“Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.” Romans 3:25,26 (KJB)

“Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.” Romans 5:9 (KJB)

“After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.” 1 Corinthians 11:25 (KJB)

“In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;” Ephesians 1:7 (KJB)

“And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.” Colossians 1:20 (KJB)

All the way into Revelation, we see the blood is what has paid our sin debt.

“And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” Revelation 1:5,6 (KJB)

The last mention of blood in the Bible brings you full circle. As the first mention of blood was that of an innocent men having it shed at the hands of the wicked, so the last mention of is of a Righteous Man trampling His enemies and shedding their blood.

“For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.” Revelation 19:2 (KJB)

“And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.” Revelation 19:13 (KJB)

Remember what the gospel is:

“For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:” 1 Corinthians 15:3,4 (KJB)

It is the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It was a sacrificial death to fulfill all the Law of Moses, but it was a death in order to make and apply a payment for sin, the only payment God would or could accept – His own blood, shed by Himself.

Watch Heretic John MacArthur Deny The Shed Blood Of Jesus Christ

This man is to be avoided at all costs, for every one right thing he says, he utters three heresies.

Now The End Begins is your front line defense against the rising tide of darkness in the last Days before the Rapture of the Church

When you contribute to this fundraising effort, you are helping us to do what the Lord called us to do. The money you send in goes primarily to the overall daily operations of this site. When people ask for Bibles, we send them out at no charge. When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. Even all the way to South Africa. We even restarted our weekly radio Bible study on Sunday nights again, thanks to your generous donations. All this is possible because YOU pray for us, YOU support us, and YOU give so we can continue growing.

But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. The Lord has given us an open door with a tremendous ‘course’ for us to fulfill that will create an excellent experience at the Judgement Seat of Christ. Please pray for our efforts, and if the Lord leads you to donate, be as generous as possible. The war is REAL, the battle HOT and the time is SHORTTO THE FIGHT!!!
