THE ROSARY AND MARY CULT AMONG CATHOLICS

I was a Catholic for 35 years and used to pray the Rosary faithfully.  I had no clue back then that this was idolatry and that God was not listening to my prayers.  The rosary is not in the Bible, and the Bible is the measuring stick for everything that is True and Right.  The Bible forbids images of anything in Heaven or on the Earth. Mary was Jewish and would have been appalled at this devotion and adoration that Catholic’s bestow upon her.  I praise God that He opened my eyes to the Truth, and pray that he will open your eyes in the same way.

The 15 Promises of Our Lady to Christians Who Recite the Rosary

Whoever shall faithfully serve Me by the recitation of the Rosary, shall receive signal graces.

I promise My special protection and the greatest graces to all who shall recite the Rosary.

The Rosary shall be a powerful armor against hell, it will destroy vice, decrease sin, and defeat heresies.

It will cause virtue and good works to flourish; it will obtain for souls the abundant mercy of God; it will withdraw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.

The soul which recommends itself to Me by the recitation of the Rosary, shall not perish.

Whoever shall recite the Rosary devoutly, applying himself to the consideration of its sacred mysteries, shall never be conquered by misfortune. God will not chastise him in His justice, he shall not perish by an unprovoked death; if he be just he shall remain in the grace of God, and become worthy of eternal life.

Whoever shall have a true devotion for the Rosary shall not die without the Sacraments of the Church.

Those who are faithful in reciting the Rosary shall have during their life and at their death the light of God and the plenitude of His graces; at the moment of death they shall participate in the merits of the saints in paradise.

I shall deliver from purgatory, those who have been devoted to the Rosary.

The faithful children of the Rosary shall merit a high degree of glory in Heaven.

You shall obtain all you ask of Me by the recitation of the Rosary.

All those who propagate the holy Rosary shall be aided by Me in their necessities.

I have obtained from My Divine Son, that all the advocates of the Rosary shall have for intercessors, the entire celestial court during their life and at the hour of death.

All who recite the Rosary are My sons, and brothers of My only son Jesus Christ.

Devotion to My Rosary is a great sign of predestination.

The Cult of “Mary”

UFOs: The Deadly Deception

For an excellent critique of Roman Catholic dogma generally, see the accompanying page, “Comments on “Compilation 8”

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places”. Ephesians 6:12 (NKJV)

“But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed”. Galatians 1:8

St. Paul’s Problem

When St. Paul was preaching in Ephesus, he had an exceptionally serious problem with the local idolatry. In fact, this is the only time that the Bible says that persecution of Christians came directly from the conflict of the Church with idolatry. The people of Ephesus, prior to the introduction of the Christian Faith, had mainly been worshippers of the pagan Greek goddess Artemis, also known by her Roman name, Diana. This was one of the largest active pagan religions in the world at that time. The Temple of Artemis in Ephesus was one of the biggest and most splendorous temples ever built. In it was an image of Artemis that her believers swore fell from the sky. Her worshippers made pilgrimages to Ephesus from all over the Greco-Roman world. Some of the Ephesian worshippers of Artemis gained their income from making images of her, presumably household shrines for sale to other worshippers. The spread of Christianity that resulted from St. Paul’s ministry in Ephesus was so powerful a movement (Acts 19:11-20) that it provoked alarm in the people who made the images of Artemis, and this alarm resulted in a riot, which we read about in Acts 19:23-41.

Paul had to leave Ephesus after the riot, but the Church remained, and in time, the cult of Artemis was totally replaced by Christianity.

Our Problem

While the cult was gone, the satanic powers behind the cult still existed. These, considering to whom the Epistle was written, and what the circumstances were, were the powers that Paul was specifically referring to in Ephesians 6:12. There was and is real spiritual power behind pagan religions, but it is satanic power. In other words, demons! Although they had been outwardly defeated, the demons behind the cult were not about to give up the fight against the Truth. So, they found another way of attacking Christianity. This time, they made their attack in a more subtle way, from within. They discovered a female personality in the history of Christianity that they could disguise themselves as, and thus deceive Christians into accepting a powerful and subtle yet seriously evil counterfeit of Christianity.

That counterfeit personality, unfortunately, is “Mary”!

Paul also told us, in I Timothy 4:1, “Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons”. So what we have today, steadily gaining power throughout the world, already effectively controlling the Roman Catholic Church, and even gaining increasing influence among Protestants, is the cult of“Mary” It should be noted that the cult of “Mary” did not begin until several centuries later.

Note: The word “Mary” is put in quotes and italics when used in connection with the cult in this page because the spiritual entity being worshipped as “Mary” is not the Mary of the Bible.

As stated at the top of the page, if anyone preaches another gospel to us, that person, angel, or whatever, is to be considered accursed, which is to say, evil. Anyone who looks at the cult of“Mary” from the standpoint of Scripture can see that what she is saying, and what is said about her, is in fact another gospel. Therefore, it is not to be accepted. In fact, in the spirit of“touch no unclean thing” (II Corinthians 6:17),anything having to do with “Mary”, like UFOs, is something that Christians should stay away from.

Special Note: Although in the Main Message of this ministry, Islam is identified as the Great Harlot, AKA Mystery Babylon, if this writer had to make a second choice as a possible fulfillment of that prophecy, the choice would be the cult of “Mary”. It may be just as powerful spiritually. The difference is that Islam is more powerful politically and militarily, has a political agenda, and is more prone to violence.
