Is Francis the Last Pope?

Part 3
CANONIZING MYSTICAL PROPHECIES & VISIONS

Read Part 1: Secrets of Fatima & Marian Apparitions

Read Part 2: St. Malachy & his prophecies


The story of St. Malachy injects intriguing speculations and possibilities
into the world’s rush into last-days ecumenism.

-Terry James' review of Petrus Romanus


DVD produced by WND Films
By Gaylene Goodroad

To summarize Part 1 and Part 2, the Postmodern Prophecy Paradigm (PPP) teachers are introducing a whole new stream of Catholic mysticism into the evangelical church world. Their particular version is not necessarily contemplative, but rather they are delving deeply into Roman Catholic mystics and their prophecies to try to discover new revelation about the endtimes. In doing so, they continue the error of the Catholic church, which mixes tradition with doctrine to create new teachings  Their postmodern prophecy formula looks like this:

Scripture + “Mystic Prophecies” = New Endtime Revelation

This new endtime revelation is a heretical admixture of truth plus error. It is a radical departure from a key tenet of the Reformation – Sola Scriptura.

To further capitalize on these false Catholic prophecies, Joseph Farah and WND Films produced a video documentary on the “Prophecy of the Popes.” This documentary is based on PPP teachers Tom Horn and Cris Putnam and their eschatological book Petrus Romanus. In the DVD description note the misplaced honor given St. Malachy, and the admission that his prophecy “cloaked in murky mysticism” is “telling a riveting story of eschatological intrigue”:

"The Last Pope?" is a documentary from WND that travels to Rome, Geneva, Belfast and the U.S. to discover the story of venerated Irish prophet St. Malachy. Lost away inside the Vatican archives for 400 years, Malachy’s Prophecy of the Popes emerged in the late 1500s at a time of great papal upheaval. Heralded at the time as a miraculous development, the origin and early years of the prophecy are cloaked in murky mysticism. According to the Prophecy of the Popes, a time of vast biblical significance is now at hand. "The Last Pope?" includes medieval historians, Vatican-affiliated experts, authors (including Tom Horn and Chris [sic] Putman, co-authors of "Petrus Romanus: The Last Pope Is Here") and others. From Ireland to Italy, "The Last Pope?" tells a riveting story of eschatological intrigue. [35] [bold, red added] 

This “riveting story” is not based upon the Bible, as we discussed at length in Part 2, but rather upon a purported prophecy of a Catholic saint, mystic, and visionary, St. Malachy. The eschatological insights presented, while intriguing, are false. As we observed earlier:

To accept this vision requires that one believes in the validity of the popes and their office! These PPP teachers are essentially agreeing with the Catholic mystics—who believe that God later added to His Word by giving visions to St. Malachy that effectually validated the office of the pope!


PETRUS ROMANUS: A REVIEW
In March 2013, David James, author of The Harbinger: Fact or Fiction?, wrote a critical review of Horn and Putnam's book Petrus Romanus in an article titled “Pope Francis – History’s Final Pope?” James' sober assessment of this book was that “much of the foundation upon which the authors have built is made up of the work of pagans, mystics, frauds, forgers, heretics and false prophets.” Below is James' summary, which also takes note of Horn's proclivity to endtime date setting (in this case 2012):

So, is Pope Francis history’s final pope? The Lord certainly knows. But that he is the final pope cannot be known based on the research, evidence and logic used by Horn and Putnam in drawing their conclusions on this point. Although they have done a tremendous amount of helpful research, the emphasis they place on the accuracy of extra-biblical prophecies and conjecture, including those from pagan sources, and the conclusions they draw from these present serious problems. As it relates to the prophecies, much of the foundation upon which the authors have built is made up of the work of pagans, mystics, frauds, forgers, heretics and false prophets. 

The following is just one of numerous examples of how the authors acknowledge the potential problems with their methods and conclusions, but seemingly dismiss those problems and proceed: 

"Please note that we do realize that date-setting has a well-documented 100 percent failure rate but, even so, we must acknowledge, there it is, 2012, brazened all over the pages of this 1951 tome. The simplest calculation which derives 2012 for the last pope is based on extrapolating the average papal reign of eleven years."

This issue is even reflected in the subtitle of Petrus Romanus—The Final Pope Is Here. On the one hand, even though in a comment criticizing this article Putnam says that he only assigns a 60-70% probability that they are right, the subtitle of the book implies that they are quite confident they have it right when they conclude that the pope following Benedict XVI would be the final one.[36][bold, red added] 

Dave James then expresses great concern over how the popularity of books like these—which weave occult elements into the Scripture—have the potential to adversely influence the Church, especially considering the wide audiences reached by the authors:

One concern with this is that despite these problems, the authors are apparently having a tremendous influence on at least certain segments of the Body of Christ. As of today, March 22, 2013, the paperback version of Petrus Romanus is ranked at #945 out of millions of books on Amazon.com, with it sitting at #4 in the “Religious Warfare” category, #4 in the “Catholicism” category and #74 in the “Christian Living category. However, even more telling and more sadly, the Kindle version of Petrus Romanus is ranked at #1 in both the “Eschatology” and “Prophecy” categories, and #10 in the “Christian Reference Works” category. This represents a lot of books being sold and a lot of people being influenced—undoubtedly believers and unbelievers alike.[37][bold added] 

Besides the book itself, James profiled other venues and teachers helping to market these deceptions:

However, beyond their influence through this book as well as interviews and articles, the authors are being offered major speaking platforms. For example, Tom Horn was a keynote speaker at the The Strategic Perspectives Conference in last October, which was hosted by the Koinonia House ministry of Chuck Missler, who was also a keynote speaker. (Other speakers included Jonathan Cahn and David Barton—both of whom have had questions raised about the accuracy of their work, and Joseph Farah, who continues to promote books on the WND website....) 

In June of last year, Tom Horn was keynote speaker at the 2012 Prophecy in the News Conference in Branson Missouri. Speakers at that conference included Jonathan Cahn, Joseph Farah, Chuck Missler, Bill Salus, and Gary Stearman among others. 

In July of this year, Horn will be addressing the Pike’s Peak Prophecy Summit, which is already sold out of tickets. The list of other speakers includes Cris Putnam, Jonathan Cahn, Joseph Farah, Gary Stearman, Chuck Missler, L.A. Marzulli, Mark Biltz, Lennart Moller, Bill Koenig, Ken Johnson, Paul McGuire, Jerry Robinson, Stan Monteith, Doug Woodward, Bob Cornuke, Barrie Schwortz, Doug Hamp, Bill Salus, David Olander, Samuel Hoyt, Doc Marquis, Derek Gilbert and David Brennan. I do not know about the work of some of these men, but the list does include those who are respected and have quite a bit of influence among believers. When good men join together with those whose work is problematic, especially in a conference-type forum, it can create a lot of unnecessary confusion within the Body of Christ.[38][bold added] 

Meanwhile, Horn & Putnam were feverishly laboring to finish their second collaborative writing project, tied to Petrus Romanus, in an attempt to further capitalize on Pope Benedict’s resignation, a new book titled Exo-Vaticana. This time they would add UFOs, space aliens and flying saucers into the prophecy admixture, continuing the themes developed in earlier books and writings.

DID ROME SUPPRESS AN OCCULT SCROLL?

Horn & Putnam book cover portraying space alien ships over the Vatican
On March 13, the day Bergoglio was named Pope Francis, PPP adherent L.A. Marzulli posted an article penned by Cris Putnam on his website, entitled: “Will Washington DC, Vatican City and Jerusalem Host the Revealing?” This post profiled Horn & Putnam’s newly published book titled Exo-Vaticana[39]; the prefix, “exo” pointing to “outer space” (UFOs) and “Vaticana” referring to the Catholic Vatican. Their book Exo-Vaticana continued the themes of Petrus Romanus.

Putnam’s perspective on Exo-Vaticana brought up its connection to Petrus Romanus and also Horn’s earlier book, Apollyon Rising 2012. (Tom Horn had predicted the return of the ancient pagan god Apollo in 2012, documented in an earlier article series HERE and HERE.[40]). In his remarks Putnam discusses“flying saucers,” “mystical, celestial journeys,” and an ancient text called the “Angel Scroll”:

In both Apollyon Rising and Petrus Romanus, a synchronicity between Vatican City and Washington DC was suggested concerning the eschatological beliefs of the Occult Elite pertaining to the return of Apollo, whom they believe will rule a final earthly empire. The capitols in both cities feature an occult architecture between a dome (feminine) and an obelisk (phallic Egyptian symbol of fertility), which seems to suggest a sorcerous [sic] birth. Our present investigation has yielded another link between Vatican City and Washington DC—a ufological one. Might these corresponding cities be the chosen locations where an Alien Savior stages The Revealing? The Revealing is the name of our friend and colleague L. A. Marzulli’s third novel in the Nephilim series. The cover of that book features a fleet of flying saucers over Jerusalem. What most people don’t know is that the back story to the cover comes from a purportedly ancient text that surfaced in the late 1990s and made a brief splash in the media before disappearing into obscurity, the Angel Scroll. Scholars derived the scroll’s name from one of its verses, which describes a mystical tour of the heavens undertaken by the scroll author in the company of an angel with the obscure Hebrew name Pnimea. The text features accounts of a number of mystical, celestial journeys, in which the author is shown the secrets of the universe… The Angel Scroll remains an enigma, but could its prediction of a UFO invasion over Jerusalem be the reason for its suppression by the Benedictine order? 

Whatever the case may be, readers will come to understand the book cover for Exo-Vaticana is not simply the product of someone’s fanciful imagination.[41][bold, red added] 

No, the book cover for Exo-Vaticana was not the “simply the product of someone’s fanciful imagination,” but was admittedly inspired by an ancient occult scroll! Besides the mention of the New Age and Jungian “synchronicity” concept[42] (applied to Vatican City and Washington, DC), these PPP authors are promulgating yet another secret plot by Vatican insiders to conceal valuable endtimes revelation—purportedly recorded on an mystical scroll predicting a UFO invasion over Jerusalem!

Photos of the two books, Marzulli’s The Revealing, and Horn & Putnam’s Exo-Vaticana, accompanied the Putnam article. The artwork of both book covers depicts a “fleet of flying saucers”; one hovering above Jerusalem (Marzulli) and the other over the Vatican (Horn & Putnam).

In our age of Hollywoodized science fiction imagery, all this reads like a sci-fi thriller. Sci-fi works when it tricks the human mind into thinking that something could be remotely plausible. Read the following definitions:
  • According to science fiction writer Robert A. Heinlein, "a handy short definition of almost all science fiction might read: realistic speculation about possible future events, based solidly on adequate knowledge of the real world, past and present, and on a thorough understanding of the nature and significance of the scientific method."
  • Rod Serling's definition is "fantasy is the impossible made probable. Science fiction is the improbable made possible." [source][emphasis added]
It is any wonder that so many people are taking these wild stories and incorporating them into their eschatological paradigm? And therein lies the danger to Christians. Will we believe the sufficiency of the Bible alone? Or are we being seductively lured into incorporating these conspiratorial speculations, pagan myths, fanciful fables, and vivid science fiction into our belief system? The postmodern prophecy paradigm is just that—a new paradigm, a new worldview—a worldview that substantially adds to the plain words of Jesus in the Bible where He told us about His Second Coming. While Christians' attentions are being diverted to flying saucers and attacking hoards of  reptilian space monsters, meanwhile the Bible encourages believers that we should be
 Looking for that blessed hope,
and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
Who gave Himself for us,
that He might redeem us from all iniquity,
and purify unto Himself a peculiar people,
zealous of good works.
(Titus 2:13-14)

ROMAN CATHOLIC SEER IDENTIFIES ‘THE FALSE PROPHET’
The PPP intrigue, mystery, suspense, and occult illumination, continues to titillate itchy ears. When news of Pope Benedict’s resignation broke in February 2013, Horn and his crew jumped into action to expedite the completion of Exo-Vaticana. A major marketing frenzy began. Horn’s Raiders News Update (RNU) was in the process of running a 20-part series of articles by Horn & Putnam based on Exo-Vaticana. On February 17, Part 13 was posted with the title: “Exo-Vaticana (Pt. 13) – Jumping Forward.” The subheading: “Petrus Romanus, PROJECT LUCIFER, and the Vatican’s astonishing exo-theological plan for the arrival of an alien savior.” An announcement, in all caps and highlighted in yellow, was displayed before the opening paragraph of the article:

NOTE: DUE TO THE RESIGNATION OF POPE BENEDICT (AS THE AUTHORS PREDICTED), EVENTS ARE ACCELERATING AROUND THE WORLD. WE HAVE BEEN FORCED TO JUMP FORWARD IN THIS SERIES TO THE FINAL HALF-DOZEN OR SO ENTRIES AND ARE WORKING HARD TO GET THE INVESTIGATIVE BOOK "EXO-VATICANA" OUT AS FAST AS POSSIBLE -- HOPEFULLY BY MID-MARCH -- RIGHT WHEN CONCLAVE WILL BE IN SESSION TO ELECT PETRUS ROMANUS -- THE FINAL POPE [43][bold added, yellow highlighting in original] 

The last entry of Horn & Putnam’s “investigative” series was posted March 20, a week after Pope Francis was installed as the new Pontiff. It was given the tantalizing title of “Exo-Vaticana (Pt 20): Alien Evangelists – with Leathery Wings, Little Horns, and Barbed Tails.”[44]

The day Pope Francis became the new pope, Raiders News Update (RNU) posted a “rush script” emblazoned with the defamatory caption of “Petrus Romanus is here!” beneath a photograph of Pope Francis.[45] Below this image are key excerpts from the RNU “rush script”:

RNU's caption over the graphic depiction of Pope Francis - Jorge Bergoglio

Petrus Romanus is here!

This is a rush script from Raiders News Update and we’ll be able to give you more information as we analyze this fantastic fulfillment of prophecy. 

  1. To start with, remember as we have told audiences repeatedly, the only thing needed to fulfill the Prophecy of the Popes would be a Cardinal of Italian descent and the new Pope Jorge Mario Bergoglio is the son of Italian parents (Roman). 
  2. Even more important is that he is the first Jesuit Pope ever (or at least for a very long time, we are researching this) and this is a VERY important aspect of the prediction in our book....
As a Jesuit, Bergoglio also makes the perfect Pope to fulfill our second book's (Exo-Vaticana) Chardinian Jesuit predictions who have been secretly arguing in favor of a coming an alien savior (MUCH MORE ON THAT WITH THE BOOK RELEASE NEXT WEEK). 

Also note this Pope was elected on 3-13-13 at 8:13 (phenomenally occult numerology) Vatican time while specifically on this date (13th) Pan-STARRS (Pan-demonium, all the demons) appeared close to the moon....[46][red added] 

That last paragraph sounds like something out of an occult manual. Notice how the statements above incorporate material from occult numerology, astrology, and ufology to create new endtime prophecies. And, indeed, these men are promulgating prophecies not found in Scripture. Swirling around these wild speculations and conjectures posing as “a fantastic fulfillment of prophecy” is their identification of Pope Francis as the villainous end-time figure connected to their dark fable: the False Prophet of Revelation who partners with the Antichrist. In a NewsWithViews article “Exo-Vaticana: Part 17” Horn relied on occult numerology, based on intricate calculations involving the number 13, to suggest that:

All the same, if the predictions of St. Malachy are truly at their fruition, then the second beast, the one from the Earth called the “false prophet” (Revelation 16:13; 19:20; 20:10) may well be Pope Francis in the role of Petrus Romanus who, unwittingly or not, will lead the world to worship the dragon. Interestingly, his namesake St. Francis of Assisi would agree.

Let these ominous contentions sink in for a moment. Horn and Putnam have just pointed their finger at a man, suggesting he is the False Prophet of Revelation, based upon occult revelation, extra-biblical, and mystical speculations! Could they be wrong? Certainly the Bible does not identify either the False Prophet, or the Antichrist. Somewhere along the line the authors of Petrus Romanus and Exo-Vaticana have lost sight of the fact that Jorge Bergoglio is a mere human being, a man, not a villainous character in made-up story or myth. What a despicable witness this is to Roman Catholics worldwide (especially Jorge Bergoglio) who need the Lord Jesus Christ and His saving Gospel—not hype, speculation, and false witness in the most egregious sense.

“Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor”
(Exodus 20:16). 

SECRET VATICAN FILES & PAPAL PROCLAMATIONS
Note the sensational hype in the online promotional material for Horn & Putnam’s second book Exo-Vaticana:

EXO-VATICANA: REVEALS FOR THE FIRST TIME... 
  • UNVEILED! THE VATICAN'S SECRET PLAN for the arrival of an alien god. 
  • DISCLOSED! SECRET FILES in the Vatican Library on the reality of the alien presence. 
  • FOUND! THE HIDDEN DOCUMENT detailing the Vatican's position on the extraterrestrials. 
  • REVEALED! PROJECT LUCIFER and the quest for "Fallen Star." 
  • THE ROLE OF PETRUS ROMANUS for the coming Alien Serpent-Savior 
  • 2013! THE YEAR top astronomers say the alien world and its inhabitants will be divulged. 
  •  UNCOVERED! THE COLLINS ELITE, OCCULTISM, and the covert breeding and hybridization program. 
  • FINALLY! THE INCREDIBLE FAMILY SECRET Tom Horn has kept concealed for over 40 years! 
  • WHAT TOP GOVERNMENT & VATICAN OFFICIALS told Tom Horn & Cris Putnam about the reality of UFOs, Extraterrestrials 
  • THE VATICAN'S TOP ASTRONOMER agrees to interview with Horn & Putnam. Read the amazing things he admitted. 
  • NICK POPE & OTHER GOVERNMENT INSIDERS open up on the alien reality, set timelines for Disclosure. 
  • BACK TO CYDONIA: Artificial structures on other worlds confirmed by the Chief of the Celestial Mechanics Branch of the NAO. 
  • THE ASTONISHING SECRET CODE on a papal proclamation and the seed of Satan
  • THE MYSTERIOUS GODDESS who watches over the divine children in whom the serpent bloodline survived and from which the serpent-savior emerged. [47] [bold, red added] 
Not one of these clandestine plots and secret government disclosures can be found in the Word of God—not a single one! Instead, Horn & Putnam have concocted these preposterous themes based on claims of hidden Vatican documents, astronomy forecasts, occult secrets, Vatican insider disclosures, Mars mythology, secret papal codes, and a mysterious pagan goddess—all describing UFOs, an “Alien Serpent Savior,” and a “covert breeding and hybridization program” involving extraterrestrials! (We wrote extensively about these aberrant “serpent seed” beliefs in some of our earlier articles. See bottom of this post for links.)

Again, these outrageous contentions are not helpful to Catholics who do not know Christ—and may even belittle them to scorn in suggesting a pathetic gullibility to believe such things. Science fiction sells, but it cannot save.

VATICAN EXPERT DENIES AUTHORS’ REPORT? 
At least one of these Vatican sources listed above—“The Vatican’s Top Astronomer” who “agree[d] to interview with Horn & Putnam”—strongly disputes “the amazing things” he supposedly disclosed to the authors. Note this outlandish excerpt from Exo-Vaticana concerning Jesuit astronomer Guy Consolmagno:

Do Vatican scholars actually believe Jesus might have been the Star-Child of an alien race? Do [Guy] Consolmagno and/or other Jesuits secretly hold that the virgin birth was in reality an abduction scenario in which Mary was impregnated by ET; giving birth to the hybrid Jesus?[48][bold added] 

Consolmagno posted a negative response to these loaded questions on his website to say that his views were grossly misrepresented. Here is what he wrote in part:

About a year ago, an author (whom I will not name or link to) conducted an extensive interview with me by email. I thought he was a legitimate journalist. However, seeing the ways in which he has twisted, misquoted, and invented utter falsehoods from the things I said, I have come to suspect that he is either a knave or a fool. 

There are no Vatican secrets about UFOs. Neither I nor anyone I know has any evidence that extraterrestrials exist. We do not believe that "Jesus is a hybrid" or any of the other bizarre claims that this author makes. He is either seriously deluded, or a deliberate con-man.[49]

But the plot thickens. Consolmagno recently published an article favorably discussing the possibility of alien baptism! He has even written a book on the subject coming out in October.[50] His own bizarre claims of extraterrestrial life only add to the readers’ confusion about his true views on the subject:

Finding any sort of life off planet Earth, either bacteria or extraterrestrials, would pose no problem for religion. Stephen Dick has recently written an excellent popular book on the history of how people through the ages have viewed the possibility of extraterrestrials ("Life on Other Worlds", Cambridge University Press, 1998). He notes that most atheists seem to think discovering extraterrestrial life would be the death of religion; but, in fact, most religious people don't see it that way at all. Indeed, as it happens some of the most prominent scientists currently working on the question of life on Mars are also active churchgoers. 

God created the whole universe. There's nothing that makes one place more special than another. Religious people have been able to think in these "cosmic" terms all along, and happily speculated about "other worlds" long before the science fiction crowd had adopted the concept.[51]

And so the deception abounds. And the Gospel of salvation is still missing. Yet with all these “red flags” waving wildly in front of the reader’s eyes, note what PPP adherent Chuck Missler says in his Introduction to Exo-Vaticana (Missler’s name also appears on the book’s cover):

Warning: This book may shatter the comfort of closely held presuppositions and may result in the wholesale alteration of crucial priorities… 

This book is intended to be an introductory part of your field manual. Much of this may come as a surprise—even to those with substantial biblical literacy at their disposal. (Don’t attempt the following discourses until you have completed a careful review of this entire book. And be prepared for some well-defended discoveries.)[bold added]

In other words, Missler is claiming that those who hold to biblical “presuppositions” should brace themselves for some shocking disclosures because Horn and Putnam have dug up tantalizing new revelations about endtimes in the Vatican archives and other dark mystical places. However, those readers who truly have “a substantial biblical literacy” will discover that what they read in Exo-Vaticana is completely foreign to the Bible.

Missler’s parenthetical admonition is a clever tactic to get people to change their beliefs. This process of opening oneself up to new material will lure readers into the abyss of these mystical teachings, so as to further indoctrinate them into the exo-world of Horn, Putnam, Missler, et al. Perhaps the authors can “well defend” their “discoveries” with pagan and occult lore, false prophecies, visions of Catholic mystics, and dusty ancient documents—but not with the Holy Scriptures. Tragically, Christ (and His Word) is conspicuously absent from these recent PPP spectacles.

As an added enticement, RNU offered a free digital library of some of the darkest (heretical) extra-biblical sources to early-bird shoppers buying Exo-Vaticana.[52] These writings, in the same rotting sheaf as Marian apparitions and mystical Catholic prophecies, cannot bring light and truth.

Exo-Vaticana advertisements on RNU
In summary, the most disheartening aspect of this whole obsession with Catholic mystical prophecies and apparitions is that it does not lead people to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We live in a postmodern climate where evangelical leaders are rushing headlong towards finding common ground with Rome, trying to revive ancient Catholic mystics and their contemplative practices.[53] Tom Horn and Cris Putnam, along with their fellow postmodern prophecy teachers, seem equally fascinated with Catholicism, especially mystic Catholic seers and their prophecies. By opening the door for seductive exploration into deep, dark mysteries of the Catholic occult, these men have broken down the walls between Catholic and Protestant even further. And the overall effect of their mystical admixture is to deny the sufficiency of Scripture alone, a core tenet of the First Reformation. 

THE TRUTH: 
Pastor Larry DeBruyn has given us a sobering assessment of attempting to gain fresh revelation outside of the closed Canon of Scripture (the Bible):

The fact that contemporary evangelicals seek “fresh” revelations from God indicates that they no longer consider Holy Scripture to be sufficient and authoritative in matters of faith (Contra 2 Timothy 3:16.). This seeking is Gnostic and mystic. Harvie Conn (1933-1999), a former missionary in Korea, noted that the “central feature” of mystical religion is its “belief in special revelation outside the Bible.” Yet if the Bible is no longer considered sufficient, the coming of “new revelations” raises the following conundrum. I repeat it. 

"If added revelations repeat what’s in the Bible, they are unnecessary. If new revelations contradict the Word of God, they are heresy. And if they supplement God’s Word, then the new revelations imply Scripture’s insufficiency, and about this Proverbs warns: 'Add thou not unto his [God’s] words, lest he [God] reprove thee, and thou be found a liar'” (Proverbs 30:6, KJV).[54]

“Then the LORD said unto me, the prophets prophesy lies in my name:
I sent them not, neither have I commanded them,
neither spake unto them:
they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination,
and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart”

(Jeremiah 14:14). 

“But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse,
deceiving, and being deceived.
But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned
and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures,
which are able to make thee wise unto salvation
through faith which is in Christ Jesus."

(2 Tim. 3:13-15)

 “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book,
If any man shall add unto these things,
God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy,
God shall take away his part out of the book of life,
and out of the holy city, and [from]
the things which are written in this book
.”
(Rev. 22:18-19)
