Passion Supplement 2
“The Walking, Talking Image of The Beast”
“And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” (Rev.13:15)
Mel Gibson’s movie, “The Passion of
the Christ” has created controversy and much publicity, not only in the world,
but in the church as well. A tidal wave of excitement is sweeping the church
and the nation. On Catholic Ash Wednesday the movie opened in theatres and in
The non-Catholic world Is blind to knowing that this is a Catholic film and that it is gross idolatry. As secular visual images have been flooding the world for the last century and religious Catholic images have been flooding the world for many centuries, people have become accustomed to images.
Movie, T.V. and video images of Christ are accepted into Protestant and Evangelical circles. This idolatry has reached new heights in this Catholic movie by Mel Gibson. It is the ultimate image ever produced by devices of man.
During the last
Satan has taken a great leap toward accomplishing this goal with this movie. Now we are seeing computerized TV’s- a melding together of computers and the T.V. image. We see use of two-way communication- (interactive TV’s). I believe the beast will use this existing technology of TV’s and computers. Images fly around the world on satellite TV and computers.
See (Ps.135:15-18) “The idols of the heathen are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands. They have mouths, but they speak not- etc.” But the image of the beast does just that- it moves and talks like it’s alive. The Devil’s idols are no longer ‘dumb’ and unable to speak but now he has ‘smart ‘ idols and their words will ensnare you if you’re not aware. They even speak the word of God as Gibson’s Jesus does- Beware. The image of the beast will no longer be a dumb idol, but will speak and cause the whole world to worship Antichrist under penalty of death.
Our country, yes,
the whole world, is full of idolatry. In the
The movie goes through the 14 ‘stations of the cross,’ which is a series of 14 images in a Catholic church. They represent the stages of Christ’s Passion and death. Every Catholic in the world goes through these ‘stations’ at least once a year. Three of the stations have the so-called ‘falls’ of Christ carrying his cross and one fall has Veronica wiping the face of Jesus and this image of Christ’s face has become a great Catholic relic. All three falls and Veronica are lies, perpetrated by the Catholic church- they never happened.

Do you know what a
camera is? It’s man’s device that
makes images on film. But it’s also the treasury of the Catholic church and image worship is big business in the Catholic
Church. We see these two cameras coming together in this Passion movie. The

In (Ezk. 8:3) we see the ‘image of jealousy’ that provokes the Lord to jealousy. Idolatry is spiritual adultery. It is being unfaithful with God. And it makes God jealous like a man is jealous of an adulterous wife. As it is written in (Prov.6:34) “For jealousy is the rage of a man: therefore he will not spare in the day of vengeance.” The second commandment (which has been removed in Catholic catechisms) says, “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image-----. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.” (Ex.20:4,5). And our jealous God will soon visit the iniquities of the Roman Catholics ‘fathers’ who are leading one billion Catholics into idolatry and now reaching into non-Catholic homes and churches as well.
God will never sanction an image of Christ, especially a talking one- Never- Never- Never.
God has forbidden the use of images. As secular images now form the foundation for learning in the modern world, so images, movies and videos of Christ have been accepted in Evangelical circles that doesn’t have the spiritual discernment to know that such activity is idolatrous. Both blind leaders and their blind followers are falling into the idolatry ditch. Every pastor and church leader and their congregation who have sinned in this tidal wave of idolatry in the use of images, videos and movies of Christ needs to repent publicly because our God is a jealous God who is about to pour out his wrath and vengeance on planet earth. We see in (Zeph.1:18) during the great tribulation, “The whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy.”
Stay in the King James Bible and stay away from images. God gave us a wordbook not a picture-book. “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Heb.11:1). “For we walk by faith, not by sight.” (2 Cor.5:7).
The Lord Jesus said to faithless Thomas who would not believe unless he saw the Lord. “Then saith he to Thomas, reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands: and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and My God. Jesus saith unto him, Thomas because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet believe.” (John 20:27-29)
“Little Children keep yourselves from idols.” (I John 5:21)
