Pope John Paul II Revives Inquisition

The thought of a revived Holy Office of the Inquisition would pacify some and offend others. Nevertheless, the "Holy Office" still exists. Only it's name has been changed. Pope John Paul II has been instrumental in its revival.
One may argue that this Ratzinger run agency is merely an attempt by the Catholic Church to root out communism or backslidden priests and their practices. However, with John Paul II's objective to implement "God's mandate" by creating a global church-state which will administer from traditional Roman Catholic theology, is enough cause for alarm. Malachi Martin has already stated in his book, "The Keys of this Blood," that the pope will not tolerate any belief systems that oppose his, not on a civil or church level. In John Paul II the world will behold a tyrant who will coldly execute direct orders against those whom he deems are heretics or immoral. Moreover, like his papal predecessors, John Paul II will carry out his "Godly mandate" in the name of Christ, or perhaps Mary. May God help us all.
Just as prophecy declared, the wound is healed and Napoleon's victory is short lived. Yes, there is little time left indeed! Did you notice that they boldly proclaim that this "Holy Office" will "pacify some and offend others?" Sadly, there are those true Christians out there that may fall to this power so as to be pacified. Pray for them, for theirs is a calling that has awesome opportunities to see the Almighty glorified. However, sadly they may also choose to glorify the beast instead. And yes John Paul, it DOES offend many. And I claim the Truth proclaimed in Mark 9:42 on this very office of yours! "And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea."
The Lord is about to do this my friends. Prophecy is not a haphazard set of chaotic instructions. It is fact! And the Lord will not be using any man to get this final work done on this Beast. For this Beast is of hell and the Almighty has designs already set in motion upon it. So if you feel it is your duty to do something, DON'T! The Lord Jesus will not allow you to harm the Pope or this organization. This is a holy war between Satan and Jesus.
So, what do we do in the mean time? What shall we tend to until that day is upon us where ALL both saved and lost can see with their own eyes, BABYLON fallen and the smoke of her torment rising up? Shall we do as Isaiah 58:1 states? Indeed! We should,, "Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins." For there are children of the Lord still trapped in the Church of Rome as well as all others joined with her in apostasy. And be prepared my brothers and sisters in Christ, for they will speak lies against you when you speak as the Holy Spirit gives utterance through you. They will claim you are racist! Heretics! Terrorists! Hate-mongers! And liars! But you knew that already didn't you? For it IS written in numerous areas of His Word that this is how they will treat you for loving them enough to warn them
To assist people in repenting, the Inquisitors used any torture method they could think of, with the theoretical restriction that they couldn't break the skin. The Inquisitors came up with numerous gadgets to work within this restriction. They included:
The Judas Chair: This was a large pyramid-shaped "seat." Accused heretics were placed on top of it, with the point inserted into their anuses or genitalia, then very, very slowly lowered onto the point with ropes. The effect was to gradually stretch out the opening of choice in an extremely painful manner.
The Head Vice: Pretty straightforward concept. They put your head into a specially fitted vice, and tighten it until your teeth are crushed, your bones crack and eventually your eyes pop out of their sockets.
The Pear: A large bulbous gadget is inserted in the orifice of choice, whether mouth, anus or vagina. A lever on the device then causes it to slowly expand whilst inserted. Eventually points emerge from the tips. (Apparently, internal bleeding doesn't count as "breaking the skin.")
The Wheel: Heretics are strapped to a big ol' wheel, and their bones are clubbed into shards. Not very creative, but quite effective.
Methods of execution weren't much better. Since death was the eventual outcome, the skin-breaking point was rendered largely moot. While burning at the stake was the most widely used method, being cost-effective and providing a fun spectacle for the whole family, there were other approaches used in special cases:
Sawing: Heretics were hung upside-down and sawed apart down the middle, starting at the crotch.
Disembowelment: Not the nice kind of disembowelment, where a samurai slits you wide open like a fish and you die in moments. No, that's not good enough for the Inquisition. A small hole is cut in the gut, then the intestines are drawn out slowly and carefully, keeping the victim alive for as much of the process as possible.
The Stake: Depending on how unrepentant a heretic might be, the process of burning at the stake could vary wildly. For instance, a fairly repentant heretic might be strangled, then burned. An entirely unrepentant heretic could be burned over the course of hours, using green wood or simply by placing them on top of hot coals and leaving them there until well done.
Based in Vatican City, the Holy Office of the Inquisition is still one of the most powerful branches of the Church hierarchy. In 1965, the P.R.-sensitive Pope Paul VI rebranded the Inquisition as the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith, but it was still basically the Inquisition.
The modern church lacked the political power to institute wide-ranging reigns of terror and torture around the world, so the Congregation has to settle for sternly admonishing its targets these days. What a comedown!
Instead of being the most feared institution in the entire civilized world, the Congregation had to settle for making obscure theological pronouncements — in Latin, no less. So just in case you actually wanted to care about what they had to say, you wouldn't be able to read it anyway. In 1966, Paul VI even revoked its ability to ban books, leaving the Inquisition toothless and largely irrelevant going into the 21st century.
The Congregation did have a few brief moments of shining glory in recent years, such as the pronouncement that yoga was a tool of the devil and revealing the Third Secret of Fatima, as well as endless commentaries on why Homosexuality is so darn evil.
If they were smart, they'd fire up the Inquisition to deal with the whole priestly pedophilia problem. Think of the headlines! Think of the photo-ops! Especially once they dust off the Judas Chair for these guys...
Ever heard of the Inquisition, from 1200 A.D. to 1800 A.D. . . ? It's never mentioned any longer. We hear a lot about the Jewish Holocaust when 6 million Jews perished under Hitler. But most people don't know that Hitler was a Roman Catholic and an instrument of the Holy Office. Hitler was never excommunicated for his crimes against humanity and causing the deaths of millions of people; whereas Martin Luther was excommunicated for translating the Bible into German!!

WOMEN and the INQUISITION
WOMEN FELT A SPECIAL FEAR OF THE INQUISITION
If a woman was accused of being a witch, she was in for very special torture from this sex-starved clergy. As you will discover when you read "The Malleus Maleficarium", women were specially targeted for persecution as potential, or suspected, witches. If a woman was merely thrown off a high place, as we see here, she could count herself fortunate to die a quick and relatively painless death. As we shall demonstrate, a demonic spirit of sexual obsession and deviant lust blew through this entire Inquisition after the introduction of "The Malleus Maleficarium"; Pope Innocent III issued the Papal Bull on December 5, 1484, that established this document as the standard by which the Inquisition was to be conducted. Celibacy had been in existence at this point for 361 years, enough time for priests to be truly sexually deviant.
This sexual obsession quickly grew to the point where a woman lived in fear that one day, out of the blue, she would be accused by some nameless wretch of being a witch; since accusation equaled guilt, that woman could expect a slow, torturous death at the hands of sexually deviant celibate priests. This statement is historic fact, and we shall prove it, through the official document of the Roman Catholic "Holy" Inquisition, "The Malleus Maleficarium".
We have declined to put in most of the pictures we have depicting women of this era being sexually abused, and scorned during the time of the Inquisition, simply because we do not want to show sexual body parts on this website; however, this picture does demonstrate the fact that women were sexually abused during the Inquisition, without being so visually graphic.
Here, you see a condemned woman, accused of being a witch, stripped naked and forced to crawl in front of the leering crowd to a crate where she will be placed and then hung up off the ground for all to see. Catholic priests believed that a witch lost her powers when she was suspended off the ground; therefore, when Soldiers of the Inquisition arrested a woman accused of being a witch, they would pull her physically off the ground and carry her to the dungeon of confinement. This drawing captures the essence of this ridiculous belief.
One of the most heinous of all torture devices used against women in the Inquisition were these "Witch-prickers", pictured here. As you can see, these are really knives. "The Malleus Maleficarium" declared that witches have a "Devil's Mark" somewhere on their body. This required the priestly investigator to indulge himself in carrying out closer scrutiny by stripping the poor woman totally naked and giving her a close inspection. This inspection was often carried out amidst a crowd of men who were merely acting as voyeurs, but ostensibly "forced" to witness this "inspection" because of their religious duty!
"To increase the number of hits [stab wounds], the subtle notion was concocted that the devil's mark left a spot insensible to pain, only discernible by an inspector probing with a sharp prick [one of these knives]. Thus was raised a whole guild of 'witch-prickers' paid only when they discovered a witch, which in turn led to the 'foolproof' system of using an auxiliary retractable prick. The official 'pricker', having painfully, and visibly, drawn blood from several spots on a naked victim, would painlessly plunge the substitute bodkin [knife] to the hilt, astounding the crowd, and ensuring his fee for a witch delivered to trial." [Thomkins, p. 391]
In other words, this retractable knife would not penetrate the skin when it was forcefully thrust upon the woman, but would retract into the handle as it was designed to do. But, the crowd would not know this, and would believe that the reason the woman did not scream, and did not pour forth blood even though she had just been stabbed, was because she was a witch.
These "witch-prickers" looked for other "Devil's Marks" on the woman's body as well.
"According to the Church, somewhere on the body of a female witch, the devil left his mark, the obvious of which was a supernumerary nipple -- 'sure sign' of dedication to the many-breasted goddess Diana, queen of the witches. And, as the modern medical profession estimates that three out of a hundred have such vestiges, the chances of 'netting' a witch were considerable. [NOTE: the dictionary defines "supernumerary" as having more than the standard; therefore, a woman with more than one nipple has a "supernumerary nipple"]
Certainly, celibate, "chaste" priests would be very interested in examining 100 women to find the three who had a "supernumerary nipple"! But, the "witch-prickers" would stab each and every one of these "Devil's Marks" with one of these "prickers", these nasty looking knives. Since the entire episode was conducted by a celibate, "chaste" priest, they would get mightily sexually aroused by "examining" women in this manner. Thus, you can understand the next revelation from Thomkins.
"... there was that depraved compulsion, described by Wilhelm Reich as the 'emotional plague', whereby a pox of sexually malfunctioning 'armored' individuals, unable to enjoy the pleasure of natural lovemaking, set about relieving their pent-up sexuality through ripping, tearing, and burning the very flesh they could neither kiss, caress, nor inflame with pleasure." [Ibid.]
Thus, Celibacy -- the "doctrine that demons teach" -- invaded and took over a huge part of the "Holy" Inquisition. Satan found it easy to invade the Catholic Church this mightily, for he had been moving them into the practice of witchcraft since 321 AD, when Constantine asserted his rule over the church. By the time this period of the Inquisition began, the Church had been separated from the True Vine -- Jesus -- for 800 years.
Therefore, the standing timber was very dry, susceptible to the fires from Hell that Satan blew, using the Inquisition. A Black Magick practitioner will tell you that the demonic spirit from the sexual demon, Larz, and his demonic host, virtually took over the Inquisition with their sexual lust and obsessions, a take-over made extremely easy by the imposition of celibacy. Priests became murderers, rapists, and sexual voyeurs. As many as 75 million people paid the ultimate price, while many millions more were intimidated, tortured, and forced into having sex by a priest wielding this terrible weapon at the woman with whom he was trying to get into bed!
FEMALE PENITENTS THREATENED WITH INQUISITION UNLESS THEY HAD SEX WITH THE PRIEST
In NEWS1675, we revealed that priests threatened their female penitents in the confessional that, unless they would have sex with them, they would turn them into the Inquisition! So effective was this threat that one dying priest revealed in 1710, "by these diabolical persuasions they were at our command, without fear of revealing the secret." [Page 36, "MASTER-KEY TO POPERY", Father Givens]
Since so few people today have been taught even the rudiments of history, most do not know what the Inquisition was REALLY and TRULY like. Most people today have no idea of the rampant barbarism and torture wreaked upon the unfortunate inhabitants of Europe for 1,200 years! Most people have no idea how the entire population was consumed by fear, for a knock on one's door in the middle of the night meant immediate beginning of a torturous death at the hands of the Inquisitors.
Accusation equaled Guilty.
Therefore, if a priest threatened a woman that he would lie about her to the officers of the "Holy" Inquisition, she knew the type of torture and death that awaited her. The priest would probably report the woman to the Inquisitors as a witch. As you shall see in a few moments, the Inquisitors treated alleged witches with special relish, glee, and attention.
In this treatise, we have attempted to walk a fine line between Christian modesty and a fervent desire that you should know the fullness of truth regarding the Inquisition. Since many of the victims were stripped nude and tortured publicly, or stripped nude and raped privately, we have had to weed out numerous drawings that depicted such nudity; however, we have included a couple of pictures which, even though they depict the nudity of the victim, do so in such a way as to not depict sexual body parts. We hope your sensibilities are not offended. If you think they might be, you may stop reading now.
