I’ve been praying for further insight about Islam, and I have been led to a testimony from a former Jesuit Priest (Alberto Rivera) who wrote about things that he learned while at the Vatican (and while under Jesuit oath of secrecy). This is a boiled down (cleaned up – much easier to read and understand ) version of an excerpt from that testimony. I had to take some liberty here with grammar and with sentence structure (and with the position of certain things) in order to present this in a way that is more easily understood. I felt this to be the leading of the Spirit. This man is now dead, by the way, from “food poisoning.” Of course, the Vatican claims that this man was a complete fraud. You may be able to accurately judge their claim after you read this. Bless you. — D

In the first century AD, on-fire Christians went everywhere with the gospel, setting up small churches, but they met heavy opposition. Both the Jews and the Roman government persecuted these believers and they tried to stop their spread. But the Jews rebelled against Rome and in 70 A.D. Roman armies under General Titus smashed Jerusalem and destroyed the great Jewish temple which was the heart of Jewish worship. This was all in fulfillment of Jesus’ prophecy in Matthew 24:2.
Sweeping changes were in the wind. Corruption, apathy, greed, cruelty, perversion, and rebellion were eating away at the Roman Empire and it was ready to collapse. The persecution against Christian believers seemed useless, as disciples of Christ continued to lay down their lives for the gospel. It seems that Satan then put into action a plan to stop the spread of Christianity, and this was to create a counterfeit “Christian” religion. Rome itself would be used for this. Religion there had come from ancient Babylon and all that was needed was a certain “Christian’ face-lift. The creation of this was then started through writings of “early church fathers.” The Apostle Paul had warned of this corruption and perversion coming to the early church in his epistles.
It was through the writings of these “early church fathers” that a new religion would take its 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 the “diving serpent” where the satanic Temple of Janus stood. The great counterfeit religion was called by men, “Roman Catholicism.” In scripture it is called “Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth” (Revelation 17:5). She (this religion) was brilliantly raised up to block the gospel, slaughter the true believers in Christ, establish religion(s), create wars, and make the nations of the world drunk with the wine of the whore’s fornication, and this all IN THE NAME OF CHRIST!
Now, let’s shift ahead to 6th century Arabia, to the city of Mecca (the Valley of Baca) where there was a tribal contention over a well (Zamzam). This well is believed to be the place where God provided water for Hagar and Ishmael. The contention over this well was because the treasure of the Kaaba and the offerings that pilgrims had given were dumped down this well and it then was filled with sand and covered over. It was lost. Many years later, Adb al-Muttalib was given visions telling him where to find this well and its treasure. He became the hero of Mecca, and he was destined to become the grandfather of Muhammad.
Before Muhammad’s time (born in Mecca in 570 AD), Augustine had become the Catholic bishop of North Africa and he 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 was 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 Mohammed’s identity (as the grandson of Adb al-Muttalib) he said to the uncle,“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.”
This Roman Catholic monk had fanned the flames for future Jewish persecutions at the hands of the followers of Muhammad. This was all part of the Catholic plan. The Vatican desperately wanted Jerusalem because of its religious significance, but this was blocked by the Jews. Another problem for the Catholic Church was the true Christians in North Africa who preached the gospel. Roman Catholicism was growing in power there, but they would not tolerate this Christian opposition. The Vatican knew that they had to create a weapon to eliminate BOTH THE JEWS AND THE TRUE CHRISTIAN BELIEVERS and all those 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 Arab people had become Roman Catholic, and these 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. “St. Augustine’s” monasteries served as bases for men to seek out and destroy Bible manuscripts owned by the true Christians. The Vatican decided that a messiah should be created for the Arabs, someone who 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.
Apparently there was wealthy Arabian lady (who was a faithful follower of the pope at this time) who played a tremendous part in this. She was a widow named Khadijah. She gave her wealth to the Catholic church and retired to a convent, but she was given an assignment. This 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. This young man was Mohammed. 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 on Muhammad. 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 for him. 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 then 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, made ready for the birth of Islam. 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”. 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. Behind closed doors of the Vatican it is known that these writings are guarded because THEY CONTAIN INFORMATION WHICH LINKS THE CREATION OF ISLAM TO ROMAN CATHOLICISM. 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 the Islamic “holy” book, the Koran, Christ is regarded as only a prophet. The Moslem people are taught that the pope is Christ’s representative on Earth, and because of this they also consider the pope to be a prophet of God. Yes, this is saying that the followers of Muhammad fear and respect THE POPE as a “holy man”.
After Mohammed’s death, official documents were drafted in Rome granting 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, 1: Eliminate the Jews and non-Catholic “Christian” infidels. 2: Protect the Augustinian monks and Roman Catholics. 3: 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 Islamic hands. Roman Catholics were never attacked, nor were their shrines, during this time. But when the pope asked for Jerusalem, HE WAS DENIED! The Arab generals had experienced such military success that they would not be intimidated by the pope. They had their own plan, and they felt that nothing could stand in their way.
In the Koran, under Waraquah’s direction, Muhammad had written 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 A.D. This made Jerusalem the second most holy place in the Islamic faith.
The pope realized that what they (the Vatican) had created was truly OUT OF CONTROL when he heard that Muslim leaders were calling him an INFIDEL. The Muslim generals were determined to conquer the world now for Allah, and they turned their efforts toward Europe. Islamic ambassadors approached the pope and asked for papal permission to invade European countries. The Vatican was outraged though. War was inevitable. Temporal power and control of the world was considered the basic right OF THE POPE. He wouldn’t dare think of sharing it with Islam!
The pope raised up his armies and called them “crusades.” These wars were intended to hold back the children of Ishmael from grabbing Catholic Europe! The crusades lasted for centuries and Jerusalem slipped entirely 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 and were prepared to invade Italy, they realized that they were too far extended, so they made a move for peace talks with the pope. One of the Catholic negotiators in this was Francis of Assisi. As a result of these talks, 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 in Arab countries.
To “the initiated” in the Vatican, it was revealed through briefings that both the Muslims and the Roman Catholics had 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 coming into knowledge of the Truth. The Islamic community now 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 Vatican also engineered campaigns of hatred between the Muslim Arabs and the Jews. Before these campaigns, these people had co-existed relatively peacefully because of a light control kept on the Muslims, from the Ayatollah, down through the Islamic priests, nuns, and monks.
In Europe, there was a problem arising for the Vatican. In 1910, Portugal was going Socialistic. Red flags were appearing all over and the Catholic Church was facing a major problem. Increasing numbers of people were coming against the Church. The Jesuits felt that Fatima (in Portugal) 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.The Jesuits then 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 exactly what the Jesuits wanted them to believe. As a result, the Socialists of Portugal suffered a major defeat. Roman Catholics worldwide began praying for the conversion of Russia as the Jesuits had a scheme to be worked out there too.
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 of this, a group of followers has grown into a “Blue Army” worldwide – 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 a major appearance is scheduled in the U.S!
What has this got to do with Islam? Note Bishop Sheen’s statement:
“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.
