the Vatican Created Islam (June 9, 2002)
VW Disclaimer: Posting of this section is not to suggest
that VW's editor assumes everything in it is true. I don't know, and
have no way of verifying. It was forwarded by a subscriber, and it is
offered here for your interest and discernment, along with the link
to where it originates. However, while little details may vary slightly,
from source to source, its basic thrust seems to be corroborated by
other sources such as tuppersaussy.com, and others I have read from
time to time.
It is offered because its claims are so out-of-the-mainstream understanding
of history. And yet, when a person reads it, and observes current events,
it begins to make sense; much in the same way a person might wonder
about a life-time of a relative's aberrant behavior, and then one day
to be told some little bit of information about some event that happened
in that person's life that seems initially to be so outlandish as to
be unbelievable...but when a person considers with a calm/rational mind,
that little bit of information becomes the “key” to understanding
that person's entire life.
Consider how Islam is so (supposedly) “anti-Christian”
as to persecute and martyr Christians around the world, and yet, terrorist
Arafat has made pilgrimages to the Vatican, and when the pope visited
the Holy Land a few years ago, his primary message was in support of
the plight of the downtrodden so-called “Palestinians”. For
being such a staunch “Muslim” and fighting “Jihad”
(Islamic holy war), Arafat has been seen attending (catholic) masses;
and has made public statements about how their Jihad has not sought
to destroy Catholicism's icons and shrines, that he would “never”
do such a thing...even proclaiming a certain veneration for the “virgin
Mary” and her statues.
As we have been seeing this seemingly “strange bed-fellow”
relationship between the Vatican and Islam, and we see -two- interrelated “beasts”
in Revelation ch13, it would do us good to read the following, and keep
its data in our minds as we continue observing world events unfold.
This information came from Alberto Rivera,
former Jesuit priest after his conversion to Protestant Christianity.
It is excerpted from “The
Prophet,” published by Chick Publications,
PO Box 662, Chino CA 91708.
Since its publication, after several unsuccessful
attempts on his life, he died suddenly from food poisoning. His testimony
should not be silenced. Dr. Rivera speaks to us still...
What I'm going to tell you is what I learned in secret
briefings in the Vatican when I was a Jesuit priest, under oath and
induction. A Jesuit cardinal named Augustine Bea showed us how desperately
the Roman Catholics wanted Jerusalem at the end of the third century.
Because of its religious history and its strategic location, the Holy
City was considered a priceless treasure. A scheme had to be developed
to make Jerusalem a Roman Catholic city.
The great untapped source of manpower that could do this job was
the children of Ishmael. The poor Arabs fell victim to one of the most
clever plans ever devised by the powers of darkness.
Early Christians went everywhere with the gospel setting up small
churches, but they met heavy opposition. Both the Jews and the Roman
government persecuted the believers in Christ to stop their spread.
But the Jews rebelled against Rome, and in 70 AD, Roman armies under
General Titus smashed Jerusalem and destroyed the great Jewish temple
which was the heart of Jewish worship in fulfillment of Christ's prophecy
Matthew 24:2. On this holy placed today where the
temple once stood, the Dome of the Rock Mosque stands as Islam's second
most holy place.
Sweeping changes were in the wind. Corruption,
apathy, greed, cruelty, perversion and rebellion were eating at the
Roman Empire, and it was ready to collapse. The persecution against
Christians was useless as they continued to lay down their lives for
the gospel of Christ.
The only way Satan could stop this thrust was to create a counterfeit “Christian”
religion to destroy the work of God. The solution was in Rome. Their
religion had come from ancient Babylon and all it needed was a face-lift.
This didn't happen overnight, but began in the writings of the “early
It was through their writings that a new religion would take shape.
The statue of Jupiter in Rome was eventually called St. Peter, and the
statue of Venus was changed to the Virgin Mary. The site chosen for
its headquarters was on one of the seven hills called “Vaticanus,”
the place of diving serpent where the Satanic temple of Janus stood.
The great counterfeit religion was Roman Catholicism, called “Mystery,
Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth.”
Revelation 17:5 She was raised up to block the
gospel, slaughter the believers in Christ, establish religions, create
wars and make the nations drunk with the wine of her fornication as
we will see.
Three major religions have one thing in common - each has a holy
place where they look for guidance. Roman Catholicism looks to the Vatican
as the Holy City. The Jews look to the wailing wall in Jerusalem, and
the Muslims look to Mecca as their Holy City. Each group believes that
they receive certain types of blessings for the rest of their lives
for visiting their holy place.
In the beginning, Arab visitors would
bring gifts to the “House of God,” and the keepers of the
Kaaba were gracious to all who came. Some brought their idols and, not
wanting to offend these people, their idols were placed inside the sanctuary.
It is said that the Jews looked upon the Kaaba as an outlying tabernacle
of the Lord with veneration until it became polluted with idols.
In a tribal contention over a well (Zamzam) the treasure of the Kaaba
and the offerings that pilgrims had given were dumped down the well
and it was filled with sand - it disappeared. Many years later Adb Al-Muttalib
was given visions telling him where to find the well and its treasure.
He became the hero of Mecca, and he was destined to become the grandfather
of Muhammad. Before this time, Augustine became the bishop of North
Africa and was effective in winning Arabs to Roman Catholicism, including
whole tribes. It was among these Arab converts to Catholicism that the
concept of looking for an Arab prophet developed.
Muhammad's father died from illness and sons born to great Arab families
in places like Mecca were sent into the desert to be suckled and weaned
and spend some of their childhood with Bedouin tribes for training and
to avoid the plagues in the cities. After his mother and grandfather
also died, Muhammad was with his uncle when a Roman Catholic monk learned
of his identity and said, “Take your brother's son back to his
country and guard him against the Jews, for by god, if they see him
and know of him that which I know, they will construe evil against him.
Great things are in store for this brother's son of yours.”
The Roman Catholic monk had fanned the flames for future Jewish persecutions
at the hands of the followers of Muhammad. The Vatican desperately wanted
Jerusalem because of its religious significance, but was blocked by
Another problem was the true Christians in North Africa who preached
the gospel. Roman Catholicism was growing in power, but would not tolerate
opposition. Somehow the Vatican had to create a weapon to eliminate
both the Jews and the true Christian believers who refused to accept
Roman Catholicism. Looking to North Africa, they saw the multitudes
of Arabs as a source of manpower to do their dirty work.
Some Arabs had become Roman Catholic, and could be used in reporting
information to leaders in Rome. Others were used in an underground spy
network to carry out Rome's master plan to control the great multitudes
of Arabs who rejected Catholicism. When “St Augustine” appeared
on the scene, he knew what was going on. His monasteries served as bases
to seek out and destroy Bible manuscripts owned by the true Christians.
The Vatican wanted to create a messiah for the Arabs, someone they
could raise up as a great leader, a man with charisma whom they could
train, and eventually unite all the non-Catholic Arabs behind him, creating
a mighty army that would ultimately capture Jerusalem for the pope.
In the Vatican briefing, Cardinal Bea told us this story:
A wealthy Arabian lady who was a faithful follower
of the pope played a tremendous part in this drama. She was a widow
named Khadijah. She gave her wealth to the church and retired to a convent,
but was given an assignment. She was to find a brilliant young man who
could be used by the Vatican to create a new religion and become the
messiah for the children of Ishmael. Khadijah had a cousin named Waraquah,
who was also a very faithful Roman Catholic and the Vatican placed him
in a critical role as Muhammad's advisor. He had tremendous influence
Teachers were sent to young Muhammad and he had intensive
training. Muhammad studied the works of St. Augustine which prepared
him for his “great calling.” The Vatican had Catholic Arabs
across North Africa spread the story of a great one who was about to
rise up among the people and be the chosen one of their God. While Muhammad
was being prepared, he was told that his enemies were the Jews and that
the only true Christians were Roman Catholic. He was taught that others
calling themselves Christians were actually wicked impostors and should
be destroyed. Many Muslims believe this.
Muhammad began receiving “divine revelations” and his wife's
Catholic cousin Waraquah helped interpret them. From this came the Koran.
In the fifth year of Muhammad's mission, persecution came against his
followers because they refused to worship the idols in the Kaaba.
Muhammad instructed some of them to flee to Abysinnia where Negus,
the Roman Catholic king accepted them because Muhammad's views on the
virgin Mary were so close to Roman Catholic doctrine. These Muslims
received protection from Catholic kings because of Muhammad's revelations.
Muhammad later conquered Mecca and the Kaaba was cleared of idols.
History proves that before Islam came into existence, the Sabeans in
Arabia worshiped the moon-god who was married to the sun-god. They gave
birth to three goddesses who were worshipped throughout the Arab world
as “Daughters of Allah” An idol excavated at Hazor in Palestine
in 1950's shows Allah sitting on a throne with the crescent moon on
Muhammad claimed he had a vision from Allah and was
told, “You are the messenger of Allah.” This began his career
as a prophet and he received many messages. By the time Muhammad died,
the religion of Islam was exploding. The nomadic Arab tribes were joining
forces in the name of Allah and his prophet, Muhammad.
Some of Muhammad's writings were placed in the
Koran, others were never published. They are now in the hands of high
ranking holy men (Ayatollahs) in the Islamic faith. When Cardinal Bea
shared with us in the Vatican, he said, These writings are guarded
because they contain information that links the Vatican to the creation
Both sides have so much information on each other, that if exposed,
it could create such a scandal that it would be a disaster for both
religions. In their “holy” book, the Koran, Christ is regarded
as only a prophet. If the pope was His representative on earth, then
he also must be a prophet of God. This caused the followers of Muhammad
to fear and respect the pope as another “holy man.”
The pope moved quickly and issued bulls granting the Arab generals
permission to invade and conquer the nations of North Africa. The Vatican
helped to finance the building of these massive Islamic armies in exchange
for three favors:
Eliminate the Jews and Christians (true believers,
which they called infidels).
Protect the Augustinian Monks and Roman Catholics.
Conquer Jerusalem for “His Holiness”
in the Vatican.
As time went by, the power of Islam became tremendous.
Jews and true Christians were slaughtered, and Jerusalem fell into their
hands. Roman Catholics were never attacked, nor were their shrines,
during this time. But when the pope asked for Jerusalem, he was surprised
at their denial! The Arab generals had such military success that they
could not be intimidated by the pope. Nothing could stand in the way
of their own plan.
Under Waraquah's direction, Muhammad wrote that Abraham offered Ishmael
as a sacrifice. The Bible says that Isaac was the sacrifice, but Muhammad
removed Isaac's name and inserted Ishmael's name. As a result of this
and Muhammad's vision, the faithful Muslims built a mosque, the Dome
of the Rock, in Ishmael's honor on the site of the Jewish temple that
was destroyed in 70 AD. This made Jerusalem the 2nd most holy place
in the Islam faith. How could they give such a sacred shrine to the
pope without causing a revolt?
The pope realized what they had created was out of control when he
heard they were calling “His Holiness” an infidel. The Muslim
generals were determined to conquer the world for Allah and now they
turned toward Europe. Islamic ambassadors approached the pope and asked
for papal bulls to give them permission to invade European countries.
The Vatican was outraged; war was inevitable. Temporal power and control
of the world was considered the basic right of the pope. He wouldn't
think of sharing it with those whom he considered heathens.
The pope raised up his armies and called them crusades to hold back
the children of Ishmael from grabbing Catholic Europe. The crusades
lasted centuries and Jerusalem slipped out of the pope's hands. Turkey
fell and Spain and Portugal were invaded by Islamic forces. In Portugal,
they called a mountain village “Fatima” in honor of Muhammad’s
daughter, never dreaming it would become world famous.
Years later when the Muslim armies were poised on the islands of
Sardinia and Corsica, to invade Italy, there was a serious problem.
The Islamic generals realized they were too far extended. It was time
for peace talks. One of the negotiators was Francis of Assisi. As a
result, the Muslims were allowed to occupy Turkey in a “Christian”
world, and the Catholics were allowed to occupy Lebanon in the Arab
world. It was also agreed that the Muslims could build mosques in Catholic
countries without interference as long as Roman Catholicism could flourish
Cardinal Bea told us in Vatican briefings that both the Muslims
and Roman Catholics agreed to block and destroy the efforts of their
common enemy, Bible-believing Christian missionaries. Through
these concordats, Satan blocked the children of Ishmael from a knowledge
of Scripture and the truth. A light control was kept on Muslims
from the Ayatollah down through the Islamic priests, nuns and monks.
The Vatican also engineers a campaign of hatred between the Muslim Arabs
and the Jews. Before this, they had co-existed peacefully. The Islamic
community looks on the Bible-believing missionary as a devil who brings
poison to the children of Allah. This explains years of ministry in
those countries with little results.
The next plan was to control Islam. In 1910, Portugal was going Socialistic.
Red flags were appearing and the Catholic Church was facing a major
problem. Increasing numbers were against the church. The Jesuits
wanted Russia involved, and the location of this vision at Fatima could
play a key part in pulling Islam to the Mother Church. In 1917, the
Virgin appeared in Fatima. “The Mother of God” was a smashing
success, playing to overflow crowds. As a result, the Socialists of
Portugal suffered a major defeat.
Roman Catholics world-wide began praying for the
conversion of Russia and the Jesuits invented the Novenas to Fatima
which they could perform throughout North Africa, spreading good public
relations to the Muslim world. The Arabs thought they were honoring
the daughter of Muhammad, which is what the Jesuits wanted them to believe.
As a result of the vision of Fatima, Pope Pius XII ordered his Nazi
army to crush Russia and the Orthodox religion and make Russia Roman
Catholic. A few years after he lost World war II, Pope Pius XII
startled the world with his phony dancing sun vision to keep Fatima
in the news. It was great religious show biz and the world swallowed
it. Not surprisingly, Pope Pius was the only one to see this vision.
As a result, a group of followers has grown into a Blue Army world-wide,
totaling millions of faithful Roman Catholics ready to die for the blessed
virgin. But we haven't seen anything yet. The Jesuits have their Virgin
Mary scheduled to appear four or five times in China, Russia, and major
appearance in the U.S.
What has this got to do with Islam? Note Bishop
“Our Lady's appearances at Fatima marked
the turning point in the history of the world's 350 million Muslims.
After the death of his daughter, Muhammad wrote that she ‘is
the most holy of all women in Paradise, next to Mary.’ He believed
that the Virgin Mary chose to be known as Our Lady of Fatima as
a sign and a pledge that the Muslims who believe in Christ's virgin
birth, will come to believe in His divinity.
Bishop Sheen pointed out that the pilgrim
virgin statues of Our Lady of Fatima were enthusiastically received
by Muslims in Africa, India, and elsewhere, and that many Muslims
are now coming into the Roman Catholic Church.”
