Vatican: Priests Have 'More Power Than God'


VATICAN: PRIESTS HAVE ‘MORE POWER THAN GOD HIMSELF’
Catholic Church declares clergy members more powerful

Posed by: Jay Greenberg on July 13/2018 on the website: Neon Nettle

A Vatican priest named Peter stated, “The supreme power of the priestly office is the power of consecrating.  No act is greater.”  It is equal to that of Jesus Christ.”

For in this role the priest speaks with the voice and the authority of God Himself. When the priest pronounces the tremendous works of Consecration, he reaches up into heavens, brings Christ down from His throne, and places Him upon our altar to be offered up again as the victim for the sins of man.

By John Francis Noll, D.D. -Bishop of Fort Wayne
"It is a power greater than that of monarchs and emperors: it is greater than that of saints and angels, greater than that of Seraphim and Cherubim.  Christ became incarnate a single time, the priest brings Christ down from heaven, and renders Him present on our altar as the eternal Victim for the sins of man – not once but a thousand times! The priest speaks and lo! Christ the Eternal and Omnipotent God, bows His head in humble obedience to the priest’s command.

He continues the essential ministry of Christ; he teaches the faithful with the authority of Christ, he pardons the penitent sinner with the power of Christ, he offers up again the same sacrifice of adoration and atonement which Christ offered on Calvary.  For the priest is and should be another Christ.

The Little Horn
In the context of “the little horn” the angel speaks to Daniel the following words:
Daniel 7:25-27 NET He will speak words against the Most High. He will harass the holy ones (wear out the Saints) of the Most High continually. His intention will be to change times established by law. They will be delivered into his hand For a time, times, and half a time. (26) But the court will convene (judgment will sit), and his ruling authority will be removed (take away his dominion) -- destroyed and abolished forever! (27) Then the kingdom, authority, and greatness of the kingdoms under all of heaven will be delivered to the people of the holy ones of the Most High. His kingdom is an eternal kingdom; all authorities will serve him and obey him.'

As posted several times in past articles, the “little horn” was originally an extension of the Roman Empire calling itself the Holy Roman Empire (the 1st beast or beast from the sea).  When Napoleon captured the pope and placed him in a French prison, he died and there was no pope for a period of time.  Napoleon later decided he needed a pope to crown himself as Emperor of the empire that had been defeated and captured, so he reenacted the office of pope.  The European Alliance took away the lands of the former Holy Roman Empire and placed the Vatican’s finances to a banking administrator which ultimately became the Rothschild’s system (i.e. the 2nd beast or beast from the earth)

The Vatican/Pope is claiming – there is no need for the return of Christ since priests “are another Christ” and can “bring Christ down from the heavens” because the power of priests “is equal to that of Jesus Christ”.

From Neon Nettle
It is one of the leading doctrines of Romanism that the pope is the visible head of the universal church of Christ, invested with supreme authority over bishops and pastors in all parts of the world. More than this, the pope has been given the very titles of Deity. He has been styled “Lord God the Pope” (see Appendix), and has been declared infallible. He demands the homage of all men. The same claim urged by Satan in the wilderness of temptation is still urged by him through the Church of Rome, and vast numbers are ready to yield him homage. But those who fear and reverence God meet this heaven-daring assumption as Christ met the solicitations of the wily foe: “Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve.”

God has never given a hint in His word that He has appointed any man to be the head of the church. The doctrine of papal supremacy is directly opposed to the teachings of the Scriptures. The pope can have no power over Christ’s church except by usurpation. Romanists have persisted in bringing the charge of heresy against Protestants and a willful separation from the true church. But these accusations actually apply to themselves. They are the ones who laid down the banner of Christ and departed from “the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.”  

It was by the Word of God that Jesus Christ the attacks or Satan in the wilderness fasting.  At each of Satan’s assaults, Christ would say, “It is written,” followed by a scriptural quote.

In order for the Satanic Vatican to maintain their sway over people, and establish the authority of the papal usurper, they found it necessary to keep them ignorant of the Scriptures. In cathedrals the Bible was a massive book written in Latin which no one but some priests could read and was chained to the wall.  For hundreds of years, the circulation of any type of Bible or a partial was prohibited. 

The people were forbidden to read it or to have it in their houses, and unprincipled priests and prelates interpreted its teachings to sustain their pretensions. Thus the pope came to be almost universally acknowledged as the vicegerent of God on earth, endowed with authority over church and state.

In the Revelation, John wrote of the “little book”.  When the printing press was reinvented from the Chinese, the first book published was the Bible in a vernacular language which allowed normal people to read it.  Among other things, this “little book” resulted in the Protestant Reformation.

For the benefit of converted heathens who were accustomed to various kinds of idol worship, images and relics were gradually introduced into the Christian Church.

The decree of a general council finally established this system of idolatry. To complete the sacrilegious work, Rome presumed to expunge from the law of God the second commandment, forbidding image worship, and to divide the tenth commandment, in order to preserve the number.
