Reality & Society: History of the Roman Catholic Church Government & Armies-Part 1
What is a so called church establishment doing with a government and armies? Well I hate to break it to you again, but the Unholy Roman Catholic Church is not a Religious Organization but rather it is The Roman Empire dressed as a church. These sermons are going to enlighten you even more about the armies of this blasphemous government.
To better understand what Roman Catholic Church means we need to look at the words assigned to it in the Bible.
Church is not a word used in the Old Testament so if you have a new translated version where church is inserted, that translation is wrong and probably missing important verses. When you type in church in the word search of the Lexicon you get this result:
G1577-ἐκκλησία ekklēsía, ek-klay-see'-ah; from a compound of G1537 and a derivative of G2564; a calling out, i.e. (concretely) a popular meeting, especially a religious congregation (Jewish synagogue, or Christian community of members on earth or saints in heaven or both):—assembly, church.
Nowhere is the term church referred to a government, The Vatican, The Pope or anything else the Roman Catholic Church is claims.
We are the Church, The Whole Body of Yah/God who believe in Yahusha/Christ and we are Called out of this world to be the Light to those who remain lost in the darkness of the lies being told.
Our next word is G2417 and is used 1 time in 1 verse of Acts 19:37 in which we will be looking at for the exact context so that you can see the workings of The Catholic Church even more.
Definition of sacrilegious-Merriam Webster

Acts 19:1-5,21,24-27, 35-37
And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples,
He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.
And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John's baptism.
Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.
When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
21 After these things were ended, Paul purposed in the spirit, when he had passed through Macedonia and Achaia, to go to Jerusalem, saying, After I have been there, I must also see Rome.
24 For a certain man named Demetrius, a silversmith, which made silver shrines for Diana, brought no small gain unto the craftsmen;
25 Whom he called together with the workmen of like occupation, and said, Sirs, ye know that by this craft we have our wealth.
26 Moreover ye see and hear, that not alone at Ephesus, but almost throughout all Asia, this Paul hath persuaded and turned away much people, saying that they be no gods, which are made with hands:
27 So that not only this our craft is in danger to be set at nought; but also that the temple of the great goddess Diana should be despised, and her magnificence should be destroyed, whom all Asia and the world worshippeth.
35 And when the townclerk had appeased the people, he said, Ye men of Ephesus, what man is there that knoweth not how that the city of the Ephesians is a worshipper of the great goddess Diana, and of the image which fell down from Jupiter?
36 Seeing then that these things cannot be spoken against, ye ought to be quiet, and to do nothing rashly.
37 For ye have brought hither these men, which are neither robbers of churches, nor yet blasphemers of your goddess
Our next word is Rome and there are several meanings of Rome as we will look at now.

What does the Holy See mean?- Encyclopedia Britannica

Is The Catholic Church a Government?-U.S Department of State
The Holy See is the universal government of the Catholic Church and operates from Vatican City State, a sovereign, independent territory. The Pope is the ruler of both Vatican City State and the Holy See.
Next we move to the word catholic.
The Question that should be coming to mind
Doctrines of Which Ancient Church? As we read in Acts 19 they worshipped Diana and Jupiter. They Still do by the way in the form of The Virgin Mary. I can prove this too.
Exodus 20:1-8 Reads Like This: (Again that is my daughter's Lutheran Catechism) Number 2 on Idolatry was Removed and replaced in the Roman Catholic Church and Lutheran Church with Commandment 3 as they divided up the last commandment on coveting.
I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
5 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;
6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
7 Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
The Talmudic tradition held that the commandments against idolatry and the forbidding of images formed one long, indivisible unit. Augustine, who was followed by the Roman and Lutheran traditions, accepted this suggestion and found two commandments under the rubric “thou shalt not covet.” A further tradition, following the lead of Origen, separated the commandment against images from that against idolatry; this is the view of Calvin and the Reformed tradition.

Month of May- Crowning of Mary- Polk County Catholic Schools
During the month of May, Catholics have long honored Mary with special devotions, traditions, and observations. These devotions have led her to be known as the “Queen of May.” Dating all the way back to early Greece, May has been observed as a dedication to Greek goddesses, such as Artemis, the goddess of fecundity. In medieval times, winter’s end in early May marked a time of growth and new beginnings. It was at this time that the “Tricesimum” (“30-Day Devotion to Mary” or “Lady Month”) period began and special devotions to the Mother of God started. Starting from Italy, it spread throughout the world. During the final devotion on the last day of May, a procession follows and the structure of Mary is taken back into the church.
May is the Crowning of Mary, a longstanding Catholic tradition that honors the Virgin Mary. During this time, the “May Crowning” is held, where a statue or image of Mary is presented with a floral crown and other crafted items. We hope this information helps to teach your child all about this wonderful Catholic tradition.
May Crowning Cakes
Honoring Mary in your family is a beautiful devotion to instill in your children. I always love celebrating the liturgical year with fun food and recipes! The kids always think it’s a party when there is cake, as it is a traditional celebration food. You can find my post all about how to plan a May crowning with kids here, although this cake recipe is perfect for any Marian feast day or celebration! Now let’s check out this May crowning cake recipe.
In the Roman pantheon, each of the Pleiades is associated with its own goddess (the Seven Sisters), and she who lends her name to May is Maia Majesta, the "Great Mother." mother to Hermes (Mercury). Other festivals of the month include honor paid to Vulcan, Maia, and the mother of the Lares.
Mary’s motherhood, however, is not the only reason why we call her Queen. She is also a Queen due to her unique role in her Son’s passion. The Jesuit theologian Francisco Suarez wrote that, “just as Christ, because He redeemed us, is our Lord and king by a special title, so the Blessed Virgin also [is our queen], on account of the unique manner in which she assisted in our redemption, by giving of her own substance, by freely offering Him for us, by her singular desire and petition for, and active interest in, our salvation” (De mysteriis vitae Christi). Since Christ is our King because of His passion, Mary is our Queen by her participation in the passion of her Son.
By Mary’s participation in the passion of her Son, God used her to bring into the world His plan of salvation and love. In our lives too, this plan of salvation and love is accomplished through Mary, and this is the reason we call Mary “our hope.”
What can we do to assist Mary in accomplishing this task in our lives? We can first pray the Most Holy Rosary. By reflecting on the mysteries of the Rosary, our Queen, by her intercession, binds us to the mysteries which brought about our salvation. A second way of assisting Mary is telling others what God has done through Mary in the world and in our lives. In doing so, we can bring about what St. Louis de Montfort called “the Reign of Jesus through Mary,” wherein Christ reigns in the hearts of humanity through the intercession of His mother .

In the letter to the Roman (I don't think the opened it) Paul writes
Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
No Where in the Bible is Mary mentioned as Queen of Anything or of Heaven or as our mediator.
Abba Yah/God Himself in the Flesh states in John 14:6
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Your Governments are Not Going to Save You and they are not your friends. Nor are they The Gate to anything except corruption, greed, hate, division and blasphemy.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
6 This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.
7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
porter-G2377 θυρωρόςthyrōrós, thoo-ro-ros'; from G2374 and οὖρος oûros (a watcher); a gate- warden:—that kept the door, porter.
This is an aerial view of the Vatican depicting St. Peter's death. Upside down and Yahsuha's Death Right-side up. When You Believe in Yahusha you are Entering into His Gate. Not the Vatican's. In order to enter into the gate, you must Hear Yah's voice and Turn Things Upside down.
