Is Mary the Queen of Heaven?

"I am the Lord - that is My Name - AND MY GLORY I WILL NOT GIVE TO ANOTHER, nor My praise to idols" Isaiah 42:8

Many people have featured prominently in God's unfolding plan for our redemption

Abraham, Moses, Joshua, Gideon, Deborah, Boaz and Ruth, Samuel, David, Nathan, Jeremiah, Amos, etc to name but a few recorded in the Old Testament.

Mary, Simeon, John the Baptist, Peter, Paul, James, John, Barnabas, Timothy etc to name but a few recorded in the New Testament.

Each was honoured with a unique part to play in God’s plan. A unique piece of the Kingdom jigsaw.

Some had a high impact and highly visible piece of the jigsaw. Others had a lower impact, less visible part to play.

Mary, without question was blessed with a high impact, highly visible part to play in God’s plan.

Let’s examine what that part was – and just as importantly, what it was not.

First of all Jesus has existed from everlasting to everlasting. Begotten of God not created. All things were made through Him, and for Him, and all things are held together by Him. He was before ALL thing

Colossians 1:16-17 tells us  

'Everything was created by Him, everything in heaven and on earth, everything seen and unseen, including all forces and powers, and all rulers and authorities. God’s Son created all things, and everything was made for Him. God’s Son was before all else, and by Him everything is held together'.

Jesus made it clear to all that He was from Everlasting to everlasting

Jesus answered, "I tell you for certain that even before Abraham was, I was, and I am." John 8:28

Only God can use the title 'I am'.

He was, is and always will be, God the Eternal Son.

I was created by Him and for Him. So were you. So was Mary.

Eternal Everlasting Almighty God neither had, nor has, nor will have, any need for a mother.

But, for God to rend the heavens and come down amongst us in the likeness of man, to be found in fashion as a man, to be able to call Himself the 'son of man' (one of us) to take upon Himself the form of a servant, then He needed to enter our world exactly as we do, through the womb of a woman.

Who being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Himself the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men, and being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Philippians 2:6-8

And so when God the Son 'set aside' equality with God (Now, Father, give me back the glory that I had with you before the world was created. John 17:5).. and chose to take upon Himself our human nature, then a woman was an essential part of that plan.  To be the 'son of man' - Jesus' most used term for Himself - He had to be the son of  'woman' on earth.

And so Mary was blessed by being the woman chosen to be the earthly mother of the long awaited Messiah.  Emmanuel, God with us.  

Her calling was to be the vessel chosen to fulfil the prophecy

'Behold the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His Name Immanuel, which is translated, "God with us"  Isaiah 7:14

'But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law..'  Galatians 4:4

Jesus was the Son of God because God was His Father, and Jesus was the son of man (one of us) because Mary was His mother.  Heaven and earth met in one manTruly God and truly man. (Not, as two different and two distinct natures or personalities in one man - but as One perfect Man - the Last Adam - with two natures perfectly in harmony)

Though He was God, and never ceased to be God in the incarnation, He willingly became a subject, obedient and dependent man upon the Father for the exercise of His essential attributes. Of His own free will He subjected Himself as the God-Man to the Father's will in total dependence of the Holy Spirit.

Mary was the chosen, honoured vessel by which God entered our world of flesh and blood. 

In type one could say that by the disobedience of Eve, sin and death came into the world and by the obedience of the Mary, grace and life came into the world through Her son Jesus

If this understanding was not added to over the centuries then there would be no need for a restoration paper like this.

But an immeasurable amount of deception has come in over the centuries.

Let us expose the deception - and just as important expose the spirit behind the deception.  It is right to do so. 

'Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits -whether they are of God'    1st John 4:1

Only when a doctrine is in perfect agreement with the Word of God can it be declared truth. Anything added, anything taken away is straight into deception.    Straight into bondage.

Lets start with a foundational Christian truth.

'for ALL have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God'  Romans 3:23

That included Mary.  Like us, she needed a Saviour.  In the magnificat she proclaims this right at the start..

"My soul magnifies the Lord,
And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Saviour.

The Bible decrees that it is the sins and iniquities of the ‘fathers’ that will be visited upon the children to the third and fourth generations, so as God was the Father of Jesus there was no generational sin or iniquity for Jesus to inherit.   Unlike Mary, unlike you and I, Jesus, and Jesus alone, was born without the generational contamination of Adam's original sin and the subsequent sins of the generations after Adam.

Mary’s generational or personal sin was not able to pass down to Jesus because God set in place the spiritual principle that it is the sins of the fathers that pass down to the children.

Let this diagram help to make this important point clearly.

                      

                       however..

When two people marry they become effectively ‘one flesh’

Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh   Genesis 2:24

Please note: This applies to all sexual relationships - not just husband and wife!.....

Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not! Or do you not know that he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her? For "the two," He says, "shall become one flesh. 1st Corinthians 6:15

So two people – like Joseph and Mary - who are made up of spirit soul and body (Thessalonians 5:24) –through sexual intercourse, in effect become ‘one flesh’ (picture mixing two glasses of milk from glass to glass)

          

When Mary married Joseph and had other children, then as ‘one flesh’ with Joseph - through sexual intercourse – both his and her generational sin and iniquity would then become  ‘one flesh’ and pass down through Joseph the father into the rest of the family.

Just like us.

To many even this statement is shocking because Mary has been acclaimed by many as ‘the eternal virgin’. This totally flies in the face of scripture and is deception number one.

Scripture shows that Joseph had sexual intercourse with Mary his wife after, but only after, Jesus was born. And note that he is described as May's 'first' born son.

Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son:   Matthew 1:24

The Greek word for brother(s) is <adelphos>   When it means physical sons of the same earthly parent(s) the context is perfectly clear.

And Jesus, walking by the Sea of Galilee, saw two brothers <adelphos>, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother <adelphos>, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. (Matthew 4:18)

Going on from there, He saw two other brothers <adelphos>, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother <adelphos>, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets. He called them, (Matthew 4:21)

For Herod had laid hold of John and bound him, and put him in prison for the sake of Herodias, his brother <adelphos> Philip's wife. (Matthew 14:3)

And many of the Jews had joined the women around Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother <adelphos>(John 11:19) 

(plus Matthew 22:24, Luke 12:13, 15:32; John 11:2; Acts 12:2 etc)

And when it means spiritual sons of the same Heavenly Father the context is also perfectly clear. 

And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother <adelphos> Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost. (Acts 9:17)

It is good neither to eat meat nor drink wine nor do anything by which your brother <adelphos> stumbles or is offended or is made weak. (Romans 14:21)

Know that our brother Timothy has been set free, with whom I shall see you if he comes shortly. (Hebrews 13:23)

(plus 1 Corinthians 1:1, 6:6, 7:12, 7:15, 8:12 etc)

So it is not difficult to understand what the gospel writer is saying to us when he quotes what the unbelieving and offended neighbours said of Jesus when He came to His home town.   They were saying that He had four brothers and a number of sisters, and that the sisters were either still residents of the town or, possibly, actually there with them that morning in the synagogue.

"Is this not the carpenter, the Son of Mary, and brother <adelphos> of James, Joses, Judas, and Simon? And are not His sisters here with us?" And they were offended at Him.  Mark 6:3 & Matthew 13:55-56

Another scripture mentions two of His brothers again and confirms that Mary was their mother.

There were also women looking on from afar, among whom were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James the Less and of Joses, and Salome, (Mark 15:40)

It was a full sized, real family, and the truth is that Joseph and Mary and His brothers and His sisters needed Jesus’ work on the cross as much as we did. 

In the early stages of His ministry His earthly brothers did not believe in Him.

For even His brothers <adelphos> did not believe in Him. John 7:5 

At one stage they even taunted Him.

Now the Jews' Feast of Tabernacles was at hand. His brothers <adelphos> therefore said to Him, "Depart from here and go into Judea, that Your disciples also may see the works that You are doing. "For no one does anything in secret while he himself seeks to be known openly. If You do these things, show Yourself to the world." (John 7:2-4)

Eventually after His death His mother and brothers became disciples.

These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers <adelphos>. Acts 1:14

Scripture shows that His brothers married and brought their believing wives with them on mission.

Do we have no right to take along a believing wife, as do also the other apostles, the brothers <adelphos> of the Lord, and Cephas?  1 Corinthians 9:5

James, one of the Lord's brothers is named as an apostle by Paul.

But I saw none of the other apostles except James, the Lord's brother <adelphos>. Galatians 1:19

The apostles could all accurately be termed spiritual 'brothers' <adelphos> but this scripture clearly separates the apostle James out from the other apostles to describe him as 'the Lord's brother'.  

Some claim that this James mentioned here by Paul must have been James the son of Alphaeus (Matt. 10:3, Mark 3:18, Luke 6:15) and that the term 'brother' <adelphos> should here be stretched to "the near kinsman" or "cousin of Jesus"

However there are two New Testament words for 'kinsman' and 'cousin'. These are <suggenes> which means a relative by blood, a fellow countryman, cousin, kinsfolk. and <anepsios> which means a cousin:-sister's son.>.

So when scripture means 'cousin' or 'kinsman' it clearly states so and is rightly translated as such.

And, behold, thy cousin <suggenes> Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. (Luke 1:36 KJV)

One of the servants of the high priest, being his kinsman <suggenes> whose ear Peter cut off, saith, Did not I see thee in the garden with him? (John 18:26 KJV)

Salute Herodion my kinsman <suggenes>. Greet them that be of the household of Narcissus, which are in the Lord. (Romans 16:11 KJV)

Aristarchus my fellow prisoner greets you, with Mark the cousin <anepsios> of Barnabas (about whom you received instructions: if he comes to you, welcome him), (Colossians 4:10 )

Also we see in Acts 23 :16 where Luke speaks clearly of Paul's sister's son.

And when Paul's sister's son heard of their lying in wait, he went and entered into the castle, and told Paul. (Acts 23:16)

Those seeking to have Jesus as the only son of Mary have advanced the view that the 'brothers' were 'our Lord's first cousins, the sons of Alphaeus (or Cleopas) and Mary the sister of the virgin'

Unger's Bible dictionary sums up the issue well.

'Against this view it is argued that there is no mention of cousins or kinsmen of Jesus according to the flesh, although the term cousin (Gk.anepsios) is well known in NT vocabulary (Colossians 4:10); Also the more exact term "son of Paul's sister" (Acts 23:16); Also relative occurs several times (Mark 6;4; Luke 1:36; John 18:26; Acts 10:24) as well as "kinsman" (Romans 9:3)  Thus it seems strange that if the brothers of our Lord were merely cousins they were never called such...The arguments for their being the full brothers of Jesus are numerous and taken collectively, are very strong... The words "first-born" (Luke 2:7) appear to have been used with reference to later-born children...We must remember that the evangelist employed the term 'firstborn' as an historian, from the time when his gospel was composed, and consequently could not have used it had Jesus been present to his historical consciousness as the only son of Mary.  But Jesus according to Matthew (Matthew 12:46-48; 13:55-56), had also brothers and sisters among whom he was the first-born.

I have also read claims that the term 'His brothers' simply means 'His disciples'.  Scripture always differentiates between these two terms when it comes to talking about His family so that there can be no room for mistake.

After this He went down to Capernaum, He, His mother, His brothers <adelphos>, and His disciples <mathetes>; and they did not stay there many days. John 2:1

Now the Jews' Feast of Tabernacles was at hand. His brothers <adelphos> therefore said to Him, "Depart from here and go into Judea, that Your disciples <mathetes> also may see the works that You are doing." (John 7:2-4)

So the beauty of God’s plan was that Jesus would be born of a woman into a normal family – not an abnormal – supernatural one.

Mary and her other sons did not fully grasp what Jesus was about until after His resurrection.

Son, why have You done this to us? Look, Your father and I have sought You anxiously." And He said to them, "Why did you seek Me? Did you not know that I must be about My Father’s business?" But they did not understand the statement which He spoke to them. Luke 2:48

He showed clearly that once he was a man He no longer came under matriarchal control. Mary acknowledged at Cana that He was the one in authority, not her.

And when they ran out of wine, the mother of Jesus said to Him, "They have no wine." Jesus said to her, "Woman, what does your concern have to do with Me? My hour has not yet come." His mother said to the servants, "Whatever He says to you, do itJohn 2:3

His ‘spiritual family’ (i.e spiritual brothers and sisters) clearly took precedence over His earthly or 'natural' brothers and sisters. Here we read of Jesus family standing outside wanting Him to come out to them, rather than them coming within to listen to Him. 

Then one said to Him, "Look, Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside, seeking to speak with You." But He answered and said to the one who told Him, "Who is My mother and who are My brothers?" And He stretched out His hand toward His disciples and said, "Here are My mother and My brothers! "For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is My brother and sister and mother."   Matthew 12:47 (and Mark 3:31 and Luke 8:19)

At this stage His calling and ministry clearly separated Him from his earthly family.  No wonder He could speak of the cost of following Him.  He never asks us to walk a road He has not already trod.

"Do you suppose that I came to give peace on earth? I tell you, not at all, but rather division. "For from now on five in one house will be divided: three against two, and two against three. "Father will be divided against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law." (Luke 12:51-53)

"If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple. (Luke 14:26)

Please note that when scripture uses Mary's title of mother of the Lord or as above the mother of Jesus it is careful to use the lower case 'm' in the word mother and not the uppercase 'M'.

It is significant that after this point in Acts chapter 1 verse 14, Mary's name is never mentioned again in scripture. Not by Paul in all his epistles. Not by Peter. Not by John.

Not even her son James - the Lord's brother - (Mark 6:3) - who became leader of the Jerusalem church - (Galatians 1:19) - mentions her in his letter to the church.

Sadly - in an attempt to give Mary a bigger slice of scripture - verses that in no way relate to her have been linked to her. For instance Proverbs 8:35 (which is talking of finding wisdom)

"He that shall find me, shall find life, and shall have salvation from the Lord"

Mary takes centre stage for what amounts to less than two full pages of the Bible as she hears from Gabriel that she has been chosen to give birth to the long awaited Messiah.

When the news settles she pours forth the beautiful prophetic magnificat

Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. And having come in, the angel said to her, "Rejoice, highly favoured one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!" But when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this was. Then the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. "And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. "He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. "And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end."

Then Mary said to the angel, "How can this be, since I do not know a man?" And the angel answered and said to her, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God.

"Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month for her who was called barren. "For with God nothing will be impossible." Then Mary said, "Behold the maidservant of the Lord!  Let it be to me according to your word." And the angel departed from her.

Now Mary arose in those days and went into the hill country with haste, to a city of Judah, and entered the house of Zacharias and greeted Elizabeth. And it happened, when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, that the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. Then she spoke out with a loud voice and said, "Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! "But why is this granted to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? "For indeed, as soon as the voice of your greeting sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy. "Blessed is she who believed, for there will be a fulfilment of those things which were told her from the Lord."

And Mary said:

"My soul magnifies the Lord,
And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Saviour.
For He has regarded the lowly state of His maidservant;
For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed.
For He who is mighty has done great things for me,
And holy is His name.
And His mercy is on those who fear Him
From generation to generation.
He has shown strength with His arm;
He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
He has put down the mighty from their thrones,
And exalted the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things,
And the rich He has sent away empty.
He has helped His servant Israel,
In remembrance of His mercy,
As He spoke to our fathers,
To Abraham and to his seed forever."

At the temple when Jesus was being circumcised on the eighth day according to the law, Simeon picked Him up and spoke out this prophecy

"Behold, this Child is destined for the fall and rising of many in Israel, and for a sign which will be spoken against "(yes, a sword will pierce through your own soul also), that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed." Luke 2:34

Indeed a sword did pierce Mary’s heart. Thirty three years later she had to stand and watch her firstborn son die an agonizing death on the cross.

Gathered around the cross on Calvary stood Mary, the mother of Jesus, John the beloved disciple, Mary Magdalene and others. Note that the dying thief did not pray to anyone there but Jesus.

And there at the cross, in one of scriptures most touching moments, Jesus brings John and His mother together into one family, and places Mary safely with John in his home and under his care and protection.

Now there stood by the cross of Jesus His mother, and His mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Cliopas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus therefore saw His mother, and the disciple whom He loved standing by, He said to His mother, "Woman, behold your son!" Then He said to the disciple, "Behold your mother!" And from that hour that disciple took her to his own home. John 19:25

By sending her away with John, Jesus made it clear that she was in no way associated with His atoning work.  When the same John had heaven opened to him as described by him in the Book of Revelation there is no mention of Mary let alone Mary enthroned.  

Marion theologians claim that Jesus spoke these words to John at the cross that He was in fact declaring His mother to be the mother of all believers.  

He did not say that, nor is there even one Old Testament prophecies pointing to this action. 

He was setting the example for future believers in caring for family and especially for older women. Paul wrote of these Kingdom principles.

But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever. 1 Timothy 5:8

Do not rebuke an older man, but exhort him as a father, younger men as brothers, older women as mothers, younger as sisters, with all purity. 1 Timothy 5:1-2

Yes Mary was an exceptional woman. But it was her everyday ordinariness that was the important part. She was one of us.

She was the earthly mother of God Incarnate but she was not the ‘Mother of God’- with a capitol 'M' - because the Eternal and Everlasting God does not have a Mother in Heaven.  Rather He created Mary and setting aside equality with God, blessed His creation by using her womb to enter our world in a new role, the Messiah role, as the son of man. The Last Adam.  (The first Adam was perfect until tested.  When he was tested he fell.  Jesus, the Last Adam, was tested (in all points as we are) and did not fall.

Elizabeth, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to her 'Blessed are you among womenShe will always be called blessed among women.  This phrase should not be used elevate to the idolatrous levels seen around the world today. Ever heard of Jael, the wife of Heber the Kenite?  Scripture speaks of her in the following terms.

"Most blessed among women is Jael, The wife of Heber the Kenite; Blessed is she among women in tents.  Judges 5:24

So Mary must be horrified by the worship now centred around her and the titles being given to her.  She knew that no man (or woman) was to receive worship.

I am the Lord - that is My Name and I will not give My Glory to another, nor My praise to idols.   Isaiah 42:8

Paul refused it - Acts 14:11-17 and Herod died for not refusing it - Acts 12:22-23

God's angels refuse it - Rev 22: 8-9 while satan and his fallen angels crave it - Isaiah 14: 13-14

Thomas worshipped Jesus and Jesus did not refuse His worship because Jesus is, was, and will always be God.- John 20:28

Therefore for Mary to receive any worship - little or great - she would have to be 'God'.  The divine Mother of God as signified with a capital 'M'   

Deception number one then is that Mary is the 'Eternal Virgin'Scripture says 'not true'.

Deception number two is the claim made that Mary's own conception was 'immaculate'.

That she was 'conceived without sin'  

The Bible has none of itOnly Jesus was conceived without sin.

Deception number three is that not only was she conceived without sin, but that her whole existence was untouched by sin.

The Bible has none of itOnly Jesus lived a sinless existence.

assumption.gif (50050 bytes) Deception number four - 'The Assumption' - dating from an infallible dogma issued in Rome in November 1950 declaring that after her death Mary was taken bodily into Heaven.

The Bible has none of it

The Bible records three people and three people only that were bodily removed from earth, and that while alive. The bodies of those who die remain on earth. 

1. Enoch  2. Elijah  3. Jesus

Jude 1: 9 talks of a dispute between Michael and the devil over the dead body of Moses. If God had taken Mary bodily from earth to Heaven He would have said so. He did not say so because it did not happen. Indeed it would have been such a major supernatural event and sign that the Old Testament would have carried a 'type' or at least one prophecy about it and the New Testament writers would have written about it.

Jerusalem and Ephesus both lay claim to her tomb with Jerusalem (Valley of Cedron) making the stronger claim.  Even this - the stronger of the two claims - came many centuries after her death. The Catholic Encyclopaedia states..

"Common consent favours Jerusalem, where her tomb is shown; but some argue in favour of Ephesus. The first six centuries did not know of the tomb of Mary at Jerusalem. 


If Mary gave birth to Jesus at even 15 years of age then she would have been at least 48 when He was crucified. (since Jesus was crucified at the age of 33 and she was there)  If  it is then true that 'after her death Mary was taken bodily into Heaven' then the so called visionaries would see her at the age of her bodily assumption.

Yet the 'apparitions' claiming to be Mary are always of a fresh slim young woman, not an elderly middle aged Jewish woman. 

For instance the official 'Medjugorje Fact Sheet' states 


'Mary stands a few feet away upon a small cloud. Her presence is preceded by a brilliant light. The visionaries describe her as beautiful beyond words, radiant with holiness. She looks no more than 19, with dark hair and blue eyes'

Marian theologians - not scripture - having 'assumed' Mary bodily into Heaven in their theology, then look for evidence of her being there. They proclaim her as 'the ark of His covenant' (one of more than 6000 titles) and quote Revelation 19:1 as their proof text for her assumption 'Then the temple of God was opened in heaven, and the ark of His covenant was seen in His temple'  

Deception number five is that the Holy Spirit speaks to us through Mary and that we speak to Jesus through Mary and then through the Holy Spirit.  

This is now the claimed route between God and man, and between man and God. 

Father
Son
Holy Spirit

Mary

-us-

It is so contra-Biblical, so blasphemous as to be breathtaking in its deception!

Here is an extract from the booklet 'Consecration to the immaculate heart of Mary' written by Fr. Nicholas A. Norman, and carrying the Imprimatur of an Archbishop of Chicago

'Mary is the Mediatrix (mediator) of All Graces in virtue of her in-effable union with her spouse, the Holy Spirit, the Dispenser of All Grace.

What does this mean and what does this imply? Fr. Motherway, S.J explains this clearly:

"Our Lady is Mediatrix in the sense that no petition of man can come to Christ except through her, also no grace or favour comes from Christ except through Mary...She is the one member of Christ's Mystical Body who mediates between the Head and the members, helping to apply to every one of them the very least gift that flows from the Head to every least member of that Body...No prayer to God or His saints ever gets a hearing at the Throne of Infinite Majesty unless offered for us by the Queen of Heaven herself"

Witness these statements of Doctors of the Church:

St. Bernard - "God has filled Mary with all graces, so that men may receive by her means, every good thing that comes to them" (G.M.93)

St. Alphonsus - "We readily admit that Jesus Christ is the only Mediator of justice, and by His merits obtains for us all graces and salvation; but we say that Mary is the Mediatrix of Grace, and that, receiving all that she obtains through Jesus Christ, and because she prays for it in the name of Jesus Christ, yet all the same, whatever graces we receive, they come to us through her intercession" (G.M.p90)

St. Bonaventure - " Mary is called the gate of Heaven' because no one can enter that blessed Kingdom without passing through her" (G.M. 94)

St. Robert Bellarmine - "God decreed that all the gifts, all the graces, and all the heavenly blessings which proceed from Christ as the Head should pass through Mary to the Body of the Church. Even as the physical body has several members in its other parts, but only one head and neck, so also the church has many Apostles, Martyrs, Confessors and Virgins, but only one Head, the Son of God, and one bond between the Head and the members, the Mother of God  (Concio 42, De Nativitate B.V.M)

As for the other saints, let St. Louis De Montfort, the herald of Mary, speak for them all:

"We have three steps to mount to God; the first which is nearest to us, and most suited to our capacity, is Mary; the second is Jesus Christ, the third is God the Father. To go to Jesus, we must go to Mary, she is the Mediatrix of intercession" (T.D. 86)

Again I say, it is so contra-Biblical, so blasphemous as to be breathtaking in its deception!

Paul writes clearly in Ephesians 2:18 

For through Him (Jesus) we both have access by one Spirit to the Father

thus..

Father
Son
Holy Spirit
-us-

Jesus told us that the Holy Spirit would be the go-between Himself and us. Not the Holy Spirit PLUS somebody!

We learn about Jesus from one person and one person only. The Person of the Holy Spirit.

Jesus said, "But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, He will testify of Me"   John 15:26

Note that He did not say the Holy Spirit would testify of Mary, or Mary and Himself, but only of 'Me'

He emphasised this again some verses later in John 16:12 when He said,

"..when He, The Spirit of Truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth, for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak, and He will tell you things to come.   He will glorify Me, for He will take what is Mine and declare it to you"

Note that the Holy Spirit will only glorify Jesus, only declare to us what is of Jesus. No mention of any other being whether human or angelic.

In recent years there has been a massive push to have 'Mary' declared in a Papal Bull (irrevocable doctrine) as 

Co-Redeemer, Co-Mediator and Co-Advocate!!!    

No less than 5,000,000 signatures - including that of the late Mother Theresa - placed Pope John Paul 2nd under immense pressure to declare that she does indeed fulfil these roles.

More than five times he used these titles in his public addresses.

Breathtaking deception - and yet millions are now putting their weight behind this.

That's the deception.  Here's the uncomplicated truth...

There is One Redeemer - and only One, God Himself..

You, O Lord are our Father, Our Redeemer from everlasting is Your Name.  Isaiah 63:16

...and it took the shedding of His Blood to achieve it for us.

In this we have redemption through His Blood, the forgiveness of our sins   Ephesians 1:7

There is one Mediator between God and Man - Jesus

For there is One God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man, Christ Jesus   1st Timothy 2:5

There is but one Advocate we have before the Throne of God. Christ Jesus

And if anyone sins we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. 1 John 2:1

Scripture makes it clear that all authority in heaven and on earth was given to Jesus.

And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth". Matthew 28:18

That total authority over all things was given to Jesus by One Person alone - The Father.

"All things have been delivered to Me by My Father..."  Matthew 11:27

The Throne and the accompanying Royal Sceptre of Righteousness and of His Kingdom was declared to Him by His Father. 

But to the Son He says: "Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of Your Kingdom"  Hebrews 1:8

No angel, no created person was involved in any way.

Yet this blasphemous goddess spirit has now 'through visions and words' convinced people that she has now presented the Royal Sceptre of authority to Jesus in the Throne Room of God !!  [see left]

After all these visions I saw Jesus. He came as Christ of All Nations. Our Blessed Mother accompanied Him, standing behind Her Son. Jesus turned to His Mother and She presented Her Son with the Golden Sceptre. Jesus raised the sceptre in His Right Hand and waved it saying "I am Jesus Christ of All Nations"

By now it is clear that the spirit behind this 'Mary exaltation' is not the Holy Spirit.  Each of these deceptive claims have been totally contrary to scripture inspired by the Holy Spirit.

But if not the Holy Spirit, then which spirit?

Which spirit wants to be 'like God' and to receive worship like God.

Here's an early clue from scripture.

How you are fallen from heaven O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, you who weakened the nations! For you have said in your heart I will ascend to heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars (angels) of God, I will also sit on the mount of the congregation, on the farthest sides of the north  I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High  Isaiah 14: 12- 14

Now if satan (formerly known as lucifer) appeared as himself we would not  worship him! We would not bow before him, bestow worship titles upon him, pray to him, meditate on him, and sing to him!

But if he takes on a religious garb and positions himself, first alongside Jesus as 'the queen of heaven' and then in front of Jesus and the Holy Spirit, as the doorway to Jesus, then he will draw worship due to God alone unto himself.

Only worship that is given to God Himself in spirit and in truth is worship that is acceptable to God. This Marion worship is to another, and is in deception, not in truth.  No worship is wasted worship. If it does not go to God it goes to feed the arrogant 'ego' of the adversary.

In the Litany of Mary of Nazareth for instance, the liturgy opens with one line of worship for the Father, one line of worship for the Son, one line of worship for the Holy Spirit - and then having dispensed with that necessity then gets down to the serious business of Marion worship using no less than 41 worship titles.

While the Bible accords God an estimated 280 titles we find that 'Mary' has been accorded no less than 6,000 titles by her followers   Some 322 are listed at the end of this study paper.

In his book 'True devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary',  St. Louis De Montfort describes what true devotion to her is. Describing the 'exterior' practices' (after first describing the interior practices) he wrote..

"True devotion to Our Lady has also several exterior practices, of which the following are the principle ones;

1. To enrol ourselves in her confraternities and enter her congregations

2. to join the religious orders instituted in her honour

3. to proclaim her praises

4. to give alms, to fast and to undergo outward and inward mortifications in her honour

5. to wear her liveries, such as the Rosary, the Scapular or the little chain

6. to recite with attention, devotion and modesty the Holy Rosary composed of the fifteen decades of Hail Marys in honour of the fifteen principal mysteries of Jesus Christ; or five decades.. or some other prayers, hymns and canticles of the church 

7. to sing, to have sung, spiritual canticles in her honour 

8.  to make a number of genuflections or reverences 

9. to take care of her confraternities, to adorn her altars to crown and ornament her images 

10. to carry her images or have them carried in procession, and to carry a picture of her about our own persons, as a mighty arm against the evil spirits 

11. to have copies of her name or picture made and placed in churches or in houses or on the gates and entrances into cities, churches and houses 

12. to consecrate ourselves to her in solemn and special manner (T.D. 115-116)

It is so well meant, yet so contra Biblical and so pagan.

This spirit masquerading as the virgin Mary to draw worship onto itself relies heavily on idols (spiritual statues) images, shrines and high places of pilgrimage (like mountain tops) to hold people into bondage. 

That's why scripture is so unrelenting in this area.   For our protection.

Statues used in any way for spiritual worship are no where in scripture treated as anything more than an anathema to God.  Even in the ten commandments the clear instruction is there..

Idol worship at its worst

You shall not make for yourself a carved image -any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.  You shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me.   Exodus 20 4-5

The Dictionary of the Liturgy, (pages 121-122) when asking the question 'what are the ten commandments?' prints the ten commandments - but omits the second command (above) and splits the ninth command into two parts to keep ten commandments:   The same book writes this..

"Mary was involved in the Mysteries of Christ. As the most holy Mother of God she was, after her son, exalted.. above all angels and human beings. Hence, the Church appropriately honours her with a special cult or devotion the Church's devotion to the Blessed Virgin is an intrinsic element of Christian worship"

Let me ask several questions..

  1. What height was Jesus?
  2. What weight was Jesus?
  3. What colour of eyes had Jesus?
  4. What colour of hair had Jesus?

Your answer to each is 'I do not know'  and the reason you do not know is because the Bible does not say, because if it did say, God knows we would make images of Jesus and adore and reverence them something expressly forbidden by God.   

People have always wanted to see something of the divine nature invested in a physical item. The Roman Catholic Church's devotion to 'relics' such as the hand or the head of a dead 'saint' bear witness to this.

Even the bronze serpent used by God in the wilderness wanderings was 'idolised' by the Israelites and had to be destroyed.

He removed the high places and broke the sacred pillars, cut down the wooden image and broke in pieces the bronze serpent that Moses had made; for until those days the children of Israel burned incense to it, and called it Nehushtan. 2 Kings 18:4

If God the Holy Spirit will not even reveal these details of Jesus lest we make an image and reverence it, how much less would He approve of images of lesser beings such as Mary Joseph or various 'saints' being used in 'acts of adoration'?

And yet this spirit masquerading as Mary literally covers 'her territory' with carved images of herself, and has people bowing to them, lighting candles before them, kissing their feet, rubbing their feet, talking to them, praying to them. keeping them in their chapels, their homes, their cars.

Indeed the apparition commands her followers to venerate her statues. Father Gobbi received this message from the 'Queen'.. 

"As Mother I want to tell you that I am here with you. Each of my statues is a sign of a presence of mine and reminds you of your heavenly Mother therefore it must be honoured and put in places of greater veneration You should look with love at every image of your heavenly Mother'

God's Word allows for no graven images to be associated with acts of adoration, reverence or veneration.

Let God's word make it clear..

Wrong

Wrong

 

You shall not make for yourself a carved image - any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.  You shall not bow down to them nor serve themExodus 20:4

"Take careful heed to yourselves, for you saw no form when the LORD spoke to you at Horeb out of the midst of the fire, "lest you act corruptly and make for yourselves a carved image in the form of any figure: the likeness of male or female, "the likeness of any animal that is on the earth or the likeness of any winged bird that flies in the air, "the likeness of anything that creeps on the ground or the likeness of any fish that is in the water beneath the earth. "And take heed, lest you lift your eyes to heaven, and when you see the sun, the moon, and the stars, all the host of heaven, you feel driven to worship them and serve them, which the LORD your God has given to all the peoples under the whole heaven as a heritage. - Deuteronomy 4:15-19

Please note that this does NOT mean that in everyday life we cannot have paintings or drawn pictures etc depicting Jesus.  

If scripture meant that we were prohibited from making 'any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth'  - for ANY reason - then every town statue, every painting, every photograph, every carving, every tapestry that has ever been in existence would be an abomination. It would mean that even the likeness of our children would be an abomination

That would mean that every Sunday school book or children's Bible illustrating Jesus or Mary or Joseph in a story would be an abomination. It would mean that every painting depicting Jesus on the Cross would be an abomination. .

Taken that far even the ' Jesus' film and 'Passion of Christ' would be an abomination since these are images graven on celluloid

The ban is on paying reverence or homage to any image. The ban is on bestowing personality on to any image. When this happens demonic will inevitably attach to the image in question.

When a person bows down before an image they enter into an act of worship to, or through, that image. Such an image is no longer an impersonal image.

Worship: The act of paying honour to a deity; religious reverence and homage. The Hebrew words used speak of 'bowing down' prostrating oneself in order to give honour and reverence. Greek words used speak of 'kissing the hand toward one in token of reverence; also by kneeling or prostration to do homage, to revere, to serve etc.

No one saw God at Horeb but Praise God, through the incarnation 'the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory,'  therefore illustrating Jesus 'coming in the likeness of men' is not sinful. 

You can always tell if a 'figure' has become spiritual when it is given special attention and special reverence in a home or church and where there is a fear of it being broken or thrown away or 'offended'. Satan is keen to get people 'joined' to idols emotionally, spiritually or physically.

"Ephraim is joined to idols, Let him alone". Hosea 4:17

This demonic being -the queen of heaven - has people bowing down at idols and shrines dotted around her territory, and making arduous pilgrimages to the top of mountains or to remote islands where there have been 'appearances'. (A little research usually shows that many of these mountains, hills, islands or caves turn out to be the ancient pagan 'high places')

This demonic power has people bowing the knee and 'crossing' themselves before 'sacred heart' paintings on the walls of houses and chapels because they believe there is something of the divine nature captured in the likeness. The Apostle Paul had to emphasise that you CANNOT capture anything of the divine nature using any material.

"Therefore, since we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, something shaped by art and man's devising' Acts 17:29

We are partakers of the Divine Nature. 

'..by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.  2nd Peter 1:4

Plaster casts and paint, shaped wood or stone, painted canvass or clever photography cannot be partakers of the divine nature.  They can illustrate a truth beautifully, but nothing more and must never be treated as more.

 

Southern Ireland is awash with statues (graven images) that encourage people to come and pray to the person that the statue represents. Yet scripture says..

You shall make for yourselves no idols and erect no graven image or pillar, and you shall not set up a figured stone in your land, to bow down to them.  Leviticus 26:1

This shrine has the words 'Kneel and Pray' engraved on the front of the shrine

Idols, images in Ungers Bible Dictionary includes these words..

'..those that apply to the idols or images as the outward symbols of the deity who was worshipped through them'

vaticanidol.jpg (26499 bytes) Listen to God's clear command again.

All sacred or spiritual graven images are to be destroyed.

You shall utterly destroy all the places where the nations which you shall dispossess served their gods, on the high mountains and on the hills and under every green tree. 

And you shall destroy their altars, break their sacred pillars, and burn their wooden images with fire, you shall cut down the carved images of their gods and destroy their names from that place.  Deuteronomy 12: 2-3

When people begin to offer any form of worship / reverence / homage or adoration in any shape or form to a 'likeness' the demonic will readily attach to that likeness and empower it.

That's why we have occasions when statues or paintings 'weep' or when 'holy medals' effect a miraculous cure. These supernatural events attach people to the idolatry on an even deeper level as they believe on an even deeper level that they are interacting with something of the divine nature.

The whole point of this restoration paper is to stop satan using Mary to draw worship away from Jesus and into his kingdom of darkness.  He has used.. or rather abused.. her name to 'ascend above the stars (God's angels) and to 'be like the Most High'

And so now it is time to fully unveil the actual name of the satanic 'principality and power' behind this massive deception.

In scripture there is mention of a demonic goddess calling herself the ‘Queen of Heaven’

She was a deceiving goddess who drew worship to herself from God’s people the Israelites, especially the women Israelites. God was not pleased with this.

The children gather wood, the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead dough, to make cakes for the queen of heaven; and they pour out drink offerings to other gods, that they may provoke Me to anger. "Do they provoke Me to anger?" says the Lord. "Do they not provoke themselves, to the shame of their own faces?" Therefore thus says the Lord God: "Behold, My anger and My fury will be poured out on this place—on man and on beast, on the trees of the field and on the fruit of the ground. And it will burn and not be quenched. Jeremiah 7:18

Despite warnings from God (perhaps like this teaching paper) those who worshipped this demonic queen refused to heed God.   This is what they said..

As for the word that you have spoken to us in the name of the Lord, we will not listen to you! "But we will certainly do whatever has gone out of our own mouth, to burn incense to the queen of heaven and pour out drink offerings to her, as we have done, we and our fathers, our kings and our princes, in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem. For then we had plenty of food, were well off, and saw no trouble. "But since we stopped burning incense to the queen of heaven and pouring out drink offerings to her, we have lacked everything and have been consumed by the sword and by famine." The women also said, "And when we burned incense to the queen of heaven and poured out drink offerings to her, did we make cakes for her, to worship her, and pour out drink offerings to her without our husbands’ permission?" Jeremiah 44:16

Clearly the women were spiritually ruling the homes. But they declared their husbands were in agreement with them. "did we make cakes for her, to worship her, and pour out drink offerings to her without our husbands’ permission?"

Since they persisted in worshipping this queen of heaven God decreed that the consequences would be violence and poverty.

Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, saying: ‘You and your wives have spoken with your mouths and fulfilled with your hands, saying, "We will surely keep our vows that we have made, to burn incense to the queen of heaven and pour out drink offerings to her." You will surely keep your vows and perform your vows!’

Therefore hear the word of the Lord, all Judah who dwell in the land of Egypt: ‘Behold, I have sworn by My great name,’ says the Lord, ‘that My name shall no more be named in the mouth of any man of Judah in all the land of Egypt, saying, "The Lord God lives." ‘Behold, I will watch over them for adversity and not for good. And all the men of Judah who are in the land of Egypt shall be consumed by the sword and by famine, until there is an end to themJeremiah 44:25

Anyone who, in one of our museums, looks at a later Buddhist shrine will find there a statue of the Queen of Heaven which is at first glance, indistinguishable from a Roman Catholic image of the Blessed Virgin*.

Occult literature - from witchcraft encyclopaedia's to alchemy manuals - contains references to this goddess who calls herself the 'queen of heaven'  This example is taken from Page 148 'Alchemy - the Art of Transformation'

'The seventh and last ripple is the alchemist as man or woman. The co-worker, as soror mystica 'lover for the work' is shown exalted in her own purity as 'Queen of Heaven' and as part of Sophia, where in one text she says; "I am the end and my beloved is the beginning. I am the whole work and all science is hidden in me"  - 

 Bible historians record that the queen of heaven is non other than the demonic being known throughout the Old Testament as Ashtaroth or Astatre.

Some scholars record that she was regarded as the sun, moon and stars (Geneva notes) but most scholars would record that she was linked to the moon. Or the moon goddess. The sun was looked on as the king and the moon as the queen (Wesley)

In order to draw her strength from man’s worship this demonic ‘goddess’ took on many aliases.

One set of Bible notes record the following information..

Ashtoreth

The moon goddess of the Phoenicians, representing the passive principle in nature, their principal female deity; frequently associated with the name of Baal. The sun god, their chief male deity (Judges 10:6 1Samuel 7:4 12:10) These names often occur in the plural (Ashtaroth, Baalim). Probably as indicating either different statues or different modifications of the deities. This deity is spoken of as Ashtorath of the Zidonians. She was Ishtar of the Accadians and the Astarte of the Greeks (1 Kings 11:5,33 2 Kings 23:13) There was a temple of this goddess among the Philistines in the time of Saul (1 Samuel 31:10) Under the name Ishtar, she was one of the great deities of the Assyrians. The Phoenicians called her Astarte. Solomon introduced the worship of this idol (1 Kings 11:33) Jezebel’s 400 priests were probably employed in its service (1 Kings 18:19)   It was called the queen of heaven

Other Bible notes record the following information..

Queen of heaven, or frame of heaven

As the Sun was worshipped, not only under the name of baal shamayim – lord of heaven – but also that of Molech or king; it is likely also that the moon was adored as melecheth hashshamayim "the queen of heaven". So the Orphic hymn addressed to the moon begins "Hear goddess queen. And Homer, in his hymn to the moon, addresses her" All hail, Queen, goddess. In Epiphanius we find some women of Arabia, towards the end of the fourth century, had set up another queen of heaven, the virgin Mary, too well known since under that name and character, whom they likewise worshipped as a goddess, by holding stated assemblies to her every year to her honour, and by offering a cake of bread in her name; whence these heretics were known as Collyridians, from the Greek [kollyris] a cake.

One of the 'queen of heaven's' masks was as the goddess Diana of the Ephesians.  She evoked fanatical worship from the populace in Ephesus when her territory was under threat from Paul's powerful preaching in the City..

Diana of the Ephesians

'And about that time there arose a great commotion about the Way. For a certain man named Demetrius, a silversmith, who made silver shrines of Diana, brought no small profit to the craftsmen.
He called them together with the workers of similar occupation, and said: "Men, you know that we have our prosperity by this trade.
"Moreover you see and hear that not only at Ephesus, but throughout almost all Asia, this Paul has persuaded and turned away many people, saying that they are not gods which are made with hands. "So not only is this trade of ours in danger of falling into disrepute, but also the temple of the great goddess Diana may be despised and her magnificence destroyed, whom all Asia and the world worship." Now when they heard this, they were full of wrath and cried out, saying, "Great is Diana of the Ephesians!"
Acts 19:23

There is an ornate shrine in Ephesus today claiming that Mary came to live (and some claim to die) in the City.  Perhaps it is not surprising that it was in Ephesus that the Roman Catholic church convened an ecumenical council in 431 in order to declare Mary  'The Mother of God'  

A life size statue of Diana of the Ephesians is on public display in the Vatican. 

Queen of Heaven

Goddess of Moon and Stars

As the ancient Sumarian Goddess of Creation, She was known by many names: Ishtar, Inanna, Isis, Esther and Nana, the Queen of Heaven represents sexual and maternal Love; the Bridge between mortal life and the afterlife; Protector, Healer, Lawmaker and Champion of Justice.

As the principle deity of the ancient Meditteranean, Ishtar, also known as Astar, Ashdar and Istaru, was a complex goddess, who presided over the primary stages of transformation (death and rebirth). She was Mother of All, the Virgin Warrior, Judge, Goddess of the Moon and Stars, and Queen of Heaven - She was Virgin, Mother and Crone.

Worship of Ishtar in her various aspects, continued throughout the Meditteranean from Rome to Egypt until about 1500 years ago. She and related goddesses, Innana, Isis, and Astarte, remained vibrant religions and in strong contention with patriarchal tribes for several thousand years.

Extract from web site called 'Goddess House'

One of the most popular images of the 'Queen of Heaven' is the mother and child image.

Babylon

Even a little research will reveal that this is simply the continuation of the popular heathen mother and child worship which began in Babylon with Semiramus (also known as Rhea) the Great Goddess 'Mother' whose son was Tammuz - see Ezekiel 8:14 

For instance, the Mother and child were worshipped as

'Isis and Osiris' in Egypt
'Isi and Iswara' in India
'Fortuna and Jupiter-puer' (the boy Jupiter) in Pagan Rome
'Shing Moo and child' in China

"Even in Tibet, in China and Japan the Jesuit missionaries were astonished to find the counterpart of Madonna and her child as devoutly worshipped as in Papal Rome itself; Shing Moo, the Holy Mother in China, being represented with a child in her arms, and a glory around her, exactly as if a Roman Catholic artist had been employed to set her up'  - Page 21  'The two Babylons'  Alexander Hyslop

Witches know only too well who the Queen of Heaven is. Read the beginning of this Wicca (witchcraft) ceremony of  'handfasting'

The sad thing is that this demonic being known as the queen of heaven has deceived millions into worshipping her and even to consecrating their very lives to her – actually giving her permission to reveal Jesus to them!

This demonic entity has deceived millions into praying to her for protection from satan! For guidance, for comfort. Even for entrance into heaven!

The Bible states clearly that there is only one Way to the Father – Jesus.

There is no other Name under heaven by which people may be saved than the Name of – Jesus.

There is no other intercessor in the Throne room other than – Jesus.

Scripture declares us again and again and again to be 'children of God'

But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: John 1:12

The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: - Romans 8:16

For you are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. Galations 3:26

We are not - as is often written - children of Mary (or worse 'children of the Queen Mother')

Jesus is the ‘all sufficient one’ All may come to Him. None will be turned away.

He did not come to condemn – He came to save, and to save to the uttermost all who come to the Father through Him – Jesus.

Jesus’ death at Calvary completely satisfied the Justice of God. ‘It is finished’  No other work is needed to be added to His finished work.  

There all our sin was judged in Jesus and the guilt and punishment that went with that judgment fell upon Jesus so that God’s mercy may flow upon us. In the divine exchange of the New Covenant our sin was imputed into Him (and He was punished in our place) and His righteousness was imputed into us. (and we were pardoned)

Christ’s death availed once and for all. This is the gospel.

We have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.- Hebrews 10:10

Yet millions have accepted as truth ‘statements’ made by appearances of the 'queen of heaven' that are 100% contrary to the work of Christ and the nature of God.

The list of blasphemies could run to pages as every booklet produced intending to glorify this demonic queen is awash with them. Pacifying words such as peace and prayer and my children and Jesus cannot hide the blasphemies. Statements such as..

Pray, pray very much and make sacrifices for sinners. Many souls are going to hell because there is no one to sacrifice themselves or pray for them"

‘In the end my Immaculate heart will triumph’

This demonic being subtly paints herself as the good person protecting the world from an angry Jesus.

The blessed Mother can no longer restrain the hand of her divine Son from striking the world with just punishment for its many crimes’

The Bible makes it clear that God’s Grace is revealed through Jesus alone..yet..

Tell everybody that God gives graces through the Immaculate heart of Mary. Tell them to ask graces from her.. ask them to plead for peace from the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the Lord has confided the peace of the world to her’

Could anything be more blasphemous!!

The Bible makes it clear that worship must go to God and to God alone. Not to men, not to angels. NOT TO ANYONE other than to God.

And I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, "See that you do not do that! I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! Revelation 19:1

I John, saw and heard these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed me these things. Then he said to me, "See that you do not do that. For I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren the prophets, and of those who keep the words of this book. Worship God."   Revelation 22:9

We see what happened to Herod when he did not reject worship that should have gone to God!

So on a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat on his throne and gave an oration to them. And the people kept shouting, "The voice of a god and not of a man!" Then immediately an angel of the Lord struck him, because he did not give glory to God. And he was eaten by worms and died  Acts 12:21

And yet this demonic being has drawn enormous levels of worship due to God alone on to herself from men and women and children. She has bestowed many titles upon herself from ‘Spouse of the Holy Spirit to Queen of angels and even Queen of the Word

I read an article where an angry priest was declaring that Mary is not being worshipped.  How deep deception can run!  Her followers give adoration (adore) to this goddess,  they idolise (idol-ise) her, they praise her, they bow before her, they pray to her, they bestow heavenly titles and give heavenly offices to her, they write books and songs about her, name children after her, give their whole lives to her, they build shrines to her - yet they do not worship her??

Read this supplication to the Queen of the Holy Rosary (from the Vatican 16th October 2002)

"O Blessed Rosary of Mary, sweet chain which unites us to God, bond of love which unites us to the angels, tower of salvation against the assaults of Hell, safe port in our universal shipwreck, we will never abandon you. You will be our comfort in the hour of our death; yours our final kiss as life ebbs away. And the last word from our lips will be your sweet name, O Queen of the Rosary of Pompei, O dearest Mother, O Refuge of Sinners, O Sovereign Consoler of the Afflicted. May you be everywhere blessed, today and always, on earth and in heaven"

This demonic goddess has enmeshed itself in ‘religious activity’ to such an extent that - as shown in many paintings - she has had herself crowned 'queen of heaven' by the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit!  

..and again, in this processional banner from Ireland she is shown being crowned the 'queen of heaven' by the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

 

This spirit, masquerading as 'Mary' has managed to be seated in the central place within the Godhead!

 


Following an appearance to a nun called Catherine in 1830 this goddess established her own temple in Paris. Catherine said "The blessed virgin told me that she desired an association of children of Mary"

Note how - in her temple - she seats herself on high - above the angels (stars of God) receiving worship from all below her. 

Scripture reveals the created being who seeks this adoration. 

For you have said in your heart: 'I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation On the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.'  Isaiah 14:13-14

Here in a 'miraculous' medal- inspired by the apparition in Paris - she stands bestowing Divine graces  upon mankind.

 "I have prepared a flood of graces for all the children who listen to my words and keep them in their hearts"    

The two hearts show her heart in tandem with Christ's heart and the 'M' of her name is entwined with the Cross. She has set herself up as being conceived without sin just as Jesus was. 

‘Mary conceived without sin pray for us who have recourse to thee’


One of the queen of heaven's titles is 'Gateway to Heaven'  Children’s novena colour books show her in this role. St. Bonaventure wrote-

" Mary is called the gate of Heaven' because no one can enter that blessed Kingdom without passing through her" (G.M. 94)

Yet Jesus said there is one way to Heaven and that He, and He alone, was the Way.  

Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14:6 

Jesus said that there was one door to Heaven and that He was that door.

I am the door; by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and go out, and shall find pasture  John 10:9

Not one angel, not one created person needed in any way.  Just Jesus. Just Jesus.

The following are just a selection of the exaltation, adoration and worship titles this goddess has drawn upon herself - something that is 100% contrary to scripture - where are the shepherds of the flock?

Queen of Apostles Mother of the Church Star of the Sea
Eternal Virgin Lady of the Nations Mystic Rose
Gate of Heaven Spouse of the Holy Spirit Throne of Wisdom
Queen of all saints Queen of Martyrs Morning Star
Queen of Peace Shrine of the soul Refuge of sinners
Queen of Angels Tower of David House of Gold
Queen of prophets Tower of Ivory Mirror of Justice
Ark of the Covenant Immaculate Conception Mother and Mediatrix
Queen of the Word Glass of Time Crystal of Light
Lake of Inner Joy Fountain of Divine Grace Thunder of Resolution
Mother of our Soul and Mind Guidepost of Eternity Flame of Clinging Love

The following are just a selection of the declarations from the queen of heaven about herself - each one 100% contrary to scripture - I ask again, where are the shepherds of the flock?

"I have placed myself as the mediatrix between my Divine Son and mankind, especially for the souls consecrated to God. Tired of the continuous offences, He already wanted to dispense His justice"
"Our Lord can no longer watch the many grievous sins against purity. He wants to send a flood of punishments. I have interceded that He may be merciful once more! Therefore, I ask for prayer and penance to atone for these sins"
"My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the path that will lead you to God"
"Many souls are going to hell because there is no one to sacrifice themselves.."
"I promise to protect those religious orders and spiritual institutes who have honoured me especially"
"On this day I shall pour out vocational holiness and abundant graces on those religious orders and spiritual institutes who have honoured me especially"
"Whoever will atone for those sins, will receive my blessing and graces"
"I am the Immaculate Conception"
"I wish to be venerated as the Rosa Mystica"
"In the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph"
"Jesus wants to establish devotion to my Imaculate Heart in the whole world"
"My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge"

At this point it may be refreshing to read Mary's magnificat again and see how the true Mary the mother of Christ Jesus would draw no such attention to herself

"My soul magnifies the Lord,

                                        And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior.

For He has regarded the lowly state of His maidservant;

For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed.

For He who is mighty has done great things for me,

And holy is His name.

And His mercy is on those who fear Him

From generation to generation.

He has shown strength with His arm;

He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.

He has put down the mighty from their thrones,

And exalted the lowly.

He has filled the hungry with good things,

And the rich He has sent away empty.

He has helped His servant Israel,

In remembrance of His mercy,

As He spoke to our fathers,

                                        To Abraham and to his seed forever."

Refreshing true worship in spirit and truth. It's all about Jesus and nobody but Jesus.

As already mentioned demonic beings need idols to hold people and families and nations into their power. Any study of pagan religion will demonstrate this point. That is why God always instructed that the Israelites made no statues for worship and that they broke down all statues used in worship.

Yet despite this, this demonic deity has persuaded people to erect shrines for worship to her on mountains, roadsides, gardens, chapels and homes. All worship at these places goes to this demonic queen of heaven. 

wpe6.jpg (18959 bytes) Saint Martin asks Mary to lead us to Christ ..states the cover of this booklet, yet the Bible states clearly that that is the work of the Holy Spirit alone.
She keeps the focus on herself with weeping statues, dancing sun, mystical appearances, rosary beads turning gold, 'miracles' etc.

Yet scripture says clearly that we are to 'test every spirit'.

This means that if what is said or done does not accord with scripture then it is deception.

 
idols idols idols
A Novena booklet's clear description of pure Marion worship..

"Devotion to Mary must be genuine, needs inner preparation and cooperation; it needs devotion that is really trying hard not only to recite casually many beautiful prayers and devotions but also to inhale the real spirit of Mary; to do everything "with Mary, in Mary, for Mary", to ask oneself consciously and with your innermost heart:  What does Mary want from me?  What would she do in my place? How can I please Her?   What would She certainly disagree with?   What changes would occur in the world, in the life of a person, in families, societies, and in nations if one were really prepared to be led by Mary"  We pray: Maria, Rosa Mystica, help us to get to know you more and more, lead us and guide us that we may be able to find the path to your mysticism.

She proclaims through visions and dreams and 'automatic handwriting' that she protects, she guides, she has sway in heaven with Jesus – and it is all 100% satanic deception to hold people into bondage to her.

Mary crushes the serpent's head - not Jesus!
In this official Legion of Mary leaflet it is the queen of heaven and not Jesus (Genesis 3:15) who is depicted crushing the serpent underfoot!

Genesis 3:15, where God addresses the serpent, prophetically points to Calvary where God's Incarnate Son - Eve's future seed -  would crush the its head while it would but bruise His heel

15

And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel.

New King James version

The Catholic Douay Bible however has translated Genesis 3:15 to read..

15 I will put enmities between thee and the woman, and thy seed and her seed: she shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel.

Not only does this demonic spirit not lead the flock to Christ, the ONLY way to the Father, but step .. by gentle step.. it leads the flock away from Christ alone towards other gods..

"On October 27th 1986, at Assisi, Italy, Pope John 2nd invited and took part in a multi faith service with buddhists, muslims, hindu's, animists, snake worshippers, North American witch doctors, spiritists and fire worshippers.

He declared that 'they were all praying to the same God and that their prayers were creating spiritual energy that was bringing about a new climate for peace"

The Pope allowed his good friend the Dalai Llama to put the Buddha on the altar in St.Peter's Church in Assisi and with his monks to have a buddhist worship ceremony there while shintuists chanted and worshipped outside"

Taken from the commentary accompanying video footage of this event as shown on David Hunt's video entitled 'A woman rides the Beast'

More was to follow..

Homage to shiva

The Pope took the mark of the goddess shiva upon his forehead from a Hindu priestess in Bombay.

 The New Age Dictionary defines shiva (pronounced "siva") as the "Hindu God of Illusion, Yoga, Animals, Ascetics; Lord of the Dance, who lives on Mt. Kailas, Benares, and sundry other places around the world". [Page 180]

Homage to allah

At the end of an audience with Patriarch Raphael I of Iraq "the Pope bowed to the Muslim holy book the Qu'ran presented to him by the delegation and kissed it as a sign of respect".

An official Catholic Church magazine used the Pope's behaviour to assure its readers that "we are being called to learn from the wisdom of other great religious traditions about ways in which we can draw closer to our True Teacher" and " many people have grown in their awareness of, and faith in, Christ through practices developed by eastern religions. Yoga and Zen and Tai chi are examples of this"

God tells us in His Word that we are not to find out how the pagans worship their gods and worship Him in the same way.

"When the Lord your God cuts off from before you the nations which you go to dispossess, and you displace them and dwell in their land, take heed to yourself that you are not ensnared to follow them, after they are destroyed from before you, and that you do not inquire after their gods, saying, ?How did these nations serve their gods? I also will do likewise.? You shall not worship the Lord your God in that way; for every abomination to the Lord which He hates they have done to their gods; Deuteronomy 12:29

Today, people are being filled with 'eastern ways' just as they were in Isaiah's day.

O house of Jacob, come and let us walk in the light of the Lord. For You have forsaken Your people, the house of Jacob, because they are filled with eastern ways; Isaiah 2:6

Here is the situation at a glance..

The battle is over WORSHIP. Lucifer was thrown out of heaven because he wanted the WORSHIP.

In the wilderness temptations of Jesus, satan said  'If you will bow down and WORSHIP me.."

We are called to WORSHIP the Most High God.

Satan said "I will be like the Most High". Isaiah 14:14   That is his avowed aim.

Using the cover of the Virgin Mary he is tasting a heady measure of success amongst mankind..

Indeed, this should be no surprise because in Revelation 13:8 we read where scripture prophesies that satan will almost achieve his agenda amongst mankind.

All inhabitants of the earth will WORSHIP the beast - all whose names have NOT been written in the book of life belonging to the Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world.

I fact today - despite the apparition's increasingly blasphemous claims during its many appearances all over the world - millions and millions and millions and millions of people attend shrines to pay homage and to this queen.  Many crawl to her statue on bloodied knees seeking her favour. The Bible speaks clearly about a 'queen' in the spiritual realm (whom God calls the great harlot) who will deceive multitudes in every nation. 

"..I will show you the judgement of the great harlot who sits on many waters..The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues.. Come out of her, My people, lest you share in her sins..for she says in her heart, "I sit as queen".." Revelation 17:1,15;  18: 4, 7

However scripture also predicts the demise of this lady of the nations (kingdoms)

"Come down and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon; sit on the ground without a throne..For you shall no longer be called the Lady of Kingdoms..But these two things will come to you in a moment, in one day; The loss of your children, and widowhood. They shall come upon you in their fullness because of the multitude of your sorceries" Isaiah 47:1, 5, 9

The Bible tells us in Psalm 119:105 'Your word is a lamp to guide me and a light for my path' As soon as we cease to use this lamp - and let apparitions, signs and wonders be our lamp - then we walk straight into massive deception.  

Not one of these titles listed below that have been given (or are currently in the process of being given) to 'Mary' are associated with her in scripture. 

Jesus - 'The Most High' Queen of heaven - like 'The Most High'
Conceived without sin Conceived without sin
Sinless life Sinless life
Taken bodily into heaven Taken bodily into heaven
Only way to the Father Only way to the Jesus
Morning Star Morning Star
Holy Spirit proceeds from Jesus to us Holy Spirit proceeds from Mary to us
Intercessor Intercessor
Receives worship Receives worship
Receives / grants prayer requests Receives / grants prayer requests
Crushes the serpent underfoot Crushes the serpent underfoot
"I am .. the Way, the Truth and the Life" "I am ..the Immaculate Conception"
The New Adam The New Eve

Serious pressure was on put on Pope John Paul 2nd to issue what would become known as ‘The Final Marion Dogma" to achieve these final worship titles.  (Already these tiltles have found their way into devotions and Pope John Paul 2nd referred to 'Mary Meadiatrix' no less than five times though as yet it is not been declared infallible dogma)

Redeemer Co-Redeemer
Mediator Co-Mediator
Advocate Co-Advocate

The ‘queen of heaven’ has declared during her many ‘apparitions’ that when she is given these final titles ‘her immaculate heart’ will have triumphed.  That then there will be 'peace' and 'another Pentecost'.

Mary: Mother ... and savior?

Jan Jarboe Russell / New York Times News Service


"The world of today is in desperate need of a mother," whispered Prof. Mark Miravalle as he sat behind his desk at Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio, carefully fingering a string of rosary beads.
Half a world away, inside the Vatican, yet another enormous box arrived filled with petitions asking Pope John Paul II to exercise his absolute power to proclaim a new and highly debated dogma: that the Virgin Mary is a co-redeemer with Jesus and cooperates fully with her son in the redemption of mankind.
Miravalle, 41, began the petition drive four years ago from his obscure position as a professor of Mariology -- the study of Mary -- at one of the most conservative Catholic universities in the nation. Since then the pope has received more than 6 million signatures from 148 countries asking him to give the Virgin Mary the ultimate promotion.
In addition to ordinary Catholics, Miravalle has received support from 550 bishops and 42 cardinals, as well as from Cardinal John O'Connor and Mother Teresa. Along the way, his movement has laid bare a deep-seated conflict between wildly popular devotion to the Virgin Mary and the efforts of the established church to keep that devotion in check.
If Miravalle's campaign succeeds and John Paul proclaims the Virgin Mary as a co-redeemer, she would be a vastly more powerful figure, something close to a fourth member of the Holy Trinity and the primary female face through which Christians experience the divine. Specifically, Roman Catholics would be required to accept three new spiritual truths: that Mary is co-redemptrix and participates in people's redemption, that Mary is mediatrix and has the power to grant all graces and that Mary is "the advocate for the people of God," in Miravalle's words, and has the authority to influence God's judgments.
For the millions of Virgin Mary devotees who have signed Miravalle's petitions, these are an accepted part of their daily spiritual lives. They represent what theologians call popular piety, practices that are widely accepted by ordinary religious people over the learned objections of the establishment. Indeed the idea has been present in Catholicism at least as far back as the 14th century. There is also historic precedent for petition campaigns like Miravalle's. Two other Marian dogmas -- the dogma of the Assumption in 1950, which declared that Mary was taken up, body and soul, to heaven after her death, and the dogma of the Immaculate Conception of 1854, which established that Mary was preserved from original sin -- were both preceded by floods of petitions. Yet within the Vatican, the dogma that Miravalle advocates has touched off a private holy war.
Although it has the support of at least 12 cardinals in Rome, others fear that its acceptance would cause a major schism among Catholics and set back all efforts at ecumenism. Because the dogma would be an infallible proclamation by the pope, it would trigger a renewed debate over the role of the pope's power in modern society.
"It seems to put her on an equal footing with Christ," said the Rev. John Roten, director of the International Marian Library in Dayton, articulating the primary reason for opposition. "That just won't do." The Rev. Rene Laurentin, a French monk and a leading Mary scholar, agrees. In a fax, Laurentin said that the proposed dogma would be the equivalent of launching "bombs" at the Protestants and would deepen the breach between the Vatican and the Eastern Orthodox church. "Mary is the model of our faith, but she is not divine," he said. "There is no mediation or co-redemption except in Christ. He alone is God."


'Totus tuus'
Pope John Paul has made no secret of his devotion to Mary. He has the phrase "totus tuus" (which in Latin means "totally hers") as his papal motto and credits the Virgin Mary with saving his life during a 1981 assassination attempt and for the fall of communism. He has used the phrase "co-redemptrix" six times in his papacy to describe Mary, which has led Miravalle and his petitioners to hope that during his lifetime the pope will proclaim her co-redeemer.
Miravalle has visited privately with the pope several times, but he would not say what happened during his meetings. "All I can tell you," Miravalle said fervently, "is that I am personally confident that the holy father will make this solemn definition of the mother of Jesus at the most appropriate time. It's not a question of if. It's only a question of when."
Responding by e-mail in Italian, Joquain Navarro-Valls, spokesman for the Vatican, said "There is no proclamation of a new dogma on the Madonna under study either by the holy father or by the International Theological Commission," repeating a statement that the Vatican made in 1997. Miravalle's argument is that the Virgin Mary literally gave Jesus the body that he in turn gave for humankind, that she was present at the important moments in his ministry and that she suffered with him during his death on the cross. "As a mother, she shared in the birth, suffering and death of her son," he said. "That makes her suffering not only valuable but redemptive."
But does that make her equal to Jesus Christ? Miravalle insists that the answer is no. He claims the use of the Latin prefix "co" in co-redeemer means "with," not "equal to." "We do not want to place Mary on a level of equality with her son," he said.
"He alone paid the price of our sins, but what we are saying is that Mary offered something that no one else could offer -- the bone of her bone, the flesh of her flesh -- and that cooperation was so great it amounted to a collaboration of our redemption."
In 1997, 23 of the world's leading Mary scholars, Catholic and Protestant, met in Poland and voted unanimously against the proposed dogma. The concern that the dogma would be construed as making Mary equal to Jesus was an underlying reason for the opposition. "The titles are ambiguous and could be understood in very different ways," said the panel of experts in a brief report that added that the idea would worsen "ecumenical difficulties."
Leaders of other denominations oppose it for other reasons as well. It gives the Virgin Mary a lot more power than most religious authorities are willing to give, and it is a reminder that to Catholics the pope is all-powerful.


Heretical view
The Rev. Paige Patterson, president of the conservative Southern Baptist Convention, the largest denomination of Protestants in the United States, is horrified at the mere suggestion that Mary might be a co-redeemer. "Such a view is clearly heretical," he said. "In order to be a redeemer, it would require a person to be perfect. It would require a person to be God. We certainly don't believe she was God."
Some liberal Protestants have long argued that the Catholic Church has used the symbol of the Virgin Mary to restrict women's possibilities by keeping women obedient to the teachings of the church. Retired Bishop John Spong, one of the most controversial figures in the Episcopal Church, says that Christians need a feminine symbol for God, but said such a symbol needed to be created by women, not "a bunch of men sitting around in Rome in their frocks."
Miravalle said he was unfazed by the objections from both ends of the spectrum. In some ways, the idea of the mother as hero and savior has been the defining theme of his life. He was born in San Francisco in 1959 to parents who were lifelong Catholics, but who later divorced because his father was a gambler and alcoholic. His mother, Nora, worked as a secretary to support him and his two siblings. The year that his father left, his elder sister died of leukemia.
"There was never enough money, and yet mother just affirmed us so much," Miravalle said. "If we needed shoes, she always found a way to cough up the money."
He was a pietistic boy. When his sister died, he reasoned that she was "taken by God" and that it was somehow for the best. He attended Catholic schools, made good grades and took pleasure in studying the lives of the saints.
He remembers times when his mother's migraine headaches were so debilitating that she would have to pull off the side of freeways so that she could vomit and then sleep for a while until she felt well enough to drive. Despite her infirmity, he said: "I always felt very protected by my mother's love. She was my first hero."
He, in turn, became a man worthy of his mother's sacrifices. In high school, he was one of the few boys in his class who always went to weekly mass. He went to a Jesuit-run college and majored in theology. He agonized over whether he was meant for life as a priest.
One day in 1980 he went to church to pray for guidance about a career. As he was leaving, he literally ran into a pretty, dark-haired woman named Beth, who was on her way into church. They stopped to talk, and before they parted, Miraville asked her for a date. "I took that as a clear, extraordinary sign that I was not meant to be a priest," he said.
The two married in 1981, and Miravalle continued his theological studies in Rome. In 1984, shortly after the birth of their first son, they went on a pilgrimage to Medjugorje, a small mountain village in Bosnia, which has been revered by Catholics since 1981 as the site where the Virgin Mary appears each evening at 6:40 to a small group of visionaries. To date, an estimated 25 million people, Catholic and non-Catholic alike, have visited the village.


Messages from Mary
Miravalle's visit was the beginning of his emergence as a leader in the popular Marian movement. He wrote his doctoral dissertation on the messages that the Virgin Mary gave the Bosnian children who first saw her. She reportedly told the children that she opposes abortion, birth control, female priests and communism. To Miravalle, the three cornerstones of her messages are prayer, penance and fasting.
Since 1984 Miravalle has published five books on Mary. At the back of each, he placed postcards that readers could cut out and send along to the pope, supporting the proposed dogma. Now the postcards and petitions average about 10,000 a month. He also puts out an international monthly news bulletin, sponsors conferences on the subject and regularly appears on Mother Angelica's television program, which reaches more than 55 million homes.
Whether or not his campaign is successful and the pope decides to declare Mary a co-redemptrix, the popular devotion to Mary as a healer, comforter and female symbol for the divine will undoubtedly continue. The world, it seems, will always need its mother.

Pope John Paul entrusts the Third Millennium to Mary
wpe8.jpg (9037 bytes) In a moving ceremony with 1,500 Bishops on hand, John Paul 2nd entrusted humanity and the third millennium to the protection of Mary. The Pope pronounced the solemn words before the original image of the Virgin of Fatima., which was brought into St.Peter's Square on Sunday October 8th. In the statue's crown was the bullet that almost ended the pope's life on May 13th 1981.

He said "Today we wish to entrust to you the future that awaits us, and we ask you to be with us on our way"...

"Therefore O Mother, like the Apostle John, we wish to take you into our home, that we may learn from you to become like your Son. 'Woman, behold your Son'  Here we stand before you to entrust to your maternal care, ourselves, the church, the entire world"..."To you, Dawn of Salvation, we commit our journey through the new millenium, so that with you as guide all people may know Christ.."

God and God alone is our Protector, our Refuge, our Shield and our Defender. No one else may have or share in that Glory.

Jesus and Jesus alone can lead us safely as we follow Him and Him alone. No one else may have or share in that Glory.

The Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit alone is entrusted with revealing Jesus to us,  teaching us about Jesus, and making us more like Jesus.  No one else may have or share in that Glory.  

He will share His Glory with no one else. Full stop.

Search scripture for yourself until you are completely convinced of this basic Kingdom truth.

God insists that we do NOT make on image of anything or anybody and then bow down to it. (Exodus 20 4-5)

This Queen of Heaven got the glory for saving the Pope's life. The bullet fired is actually moulded into her crown.  What does God's Word say on the matter?

'Our God is the God of salvation. And to God the Lord belong escapes from death' Psalm 68:20

Bowing in submission before its most powerful idol - the Virgin of Fatima - and by praying to the 'Queen of Heaven'  Pope John Paul 2nd enacted out a powerful ritual in order to place 'all humanity' under this spiritual power's deceptive protection.

While this has poses no spiritual danger to those in direct and complete submission to Christ and Christ alone, it does pose a danger to those who are in submission to the Pope who in turn has submitted himself and those in his flock into the protection and guidance of this spiritual entity.

If you are under the Pope's spiritual authority you must understand the full meaning of who he has assigned you under the protection of.

Here is but an extract from the the lengthy 'Act of Consecration to Mary', during which she is referred to as 'Hail O Queen of Heaven and earth, to whose empire everything is subject which is under God' 

"In the presence of all the heavenly court I choose thee this day for my Mother and Mistress. I deliver and consecrate to thee, as thy slave, my body and soul, my goods, both interior and exterior, and even the value of all my actions, past, present and future; leaving thee the entire and full right of disposing of me, and all that belongs to me, without exception, according to they good pleasure, for the greater glory of God, in time and in eternity".. (Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, page 34)

Now that (I trust) you know this full surrender and dedication is not to God in any shape or form you can see how, through such deadly deception, satan gets a legal hold on lives..

To complete his stranglehold the Marion association (which has traditionally been very strong in Southern Ireland) eencourages children from eleven to fourteen years of age to go through three stages of spiritual  rituals to dedicate their lives to this 'Queen of Heaven'.  


Three stages of reception..

Cadettes - They may begin to attend meetings at any age after 11 and are given the Cadettes handbook. They must wait one year before being officially received as Cadettes when they will receive the Badge of the Association.

Senior Cadettes - At 14 they may be received as Senior Cadettes, being given the Marian Handbook in order to prepare for their act of Consecration.

Associates - After nine months of preparation, they may ask to make their Act of Consecration. They will be given a special medal.


These are the rituals word for word.

Cadettes.

Priest. My children, what is your desire?

Children. Father, we wish to be enrolled as Our Lady’s Cadettes.

Priest. Do you realise what this title means and to what it obliges you?

Children. Yes, Father, we desire to belong to Our Lady, that by imitating

her we may be loved by Jesus.

Priest. Have you been faithful to the duties practiced by good Catholic girls?

Children. Yes, Father, we have been faithful, with the grace of God and our own freewill.

Priest. Why do you wish to belong to Our Blessed Lady in a special manner?

Children. Father, she is the best guide to conduct us to Jesus. She is our Mother and she will help us.

Priest. Confident in your sincerity, I willingly tell you to pronounce your promise.

Children..

O Immaculate Virgin, true ideal of all I should be, with joy and love

I give myself into your keeping today and promise to live as a true

Catholic should, keeping my eyes fixed on you, my Model and Mother.

Help me to know you and love Jesus more and more, and by my own fidelity to Him to bring others into His service. Bless and guard me each day of my life so that I may live with joy forever in heaven. Amen

 

Senior Cadettes.

Priest. What do you desire?

S. Cadette. We desire to become Our Lady’s Senior Cadettes.

Priest. Do you realise what it means to take this step in the Association?

S. Cadette. It means that we hope for the privilege of being, one day, consecrated to our Lady and so we are now freely choosing her as our model and guide in the service of Christ and our neighbour and in "living" our faith.

Priest. Are you sincere in the promise that you are going to make today?

S. Cadette. We are, and with God’s grace and our Lady’s help it will remain our ideal.

Priest. Make then your promise.

S. Cadette..

O blessed Virgin Mary, I have already tried to live up to my faith, but from today I wish to learn, under your guidance, how to know Christ better and to love and serve Him and my neighbour more earnestly.

I promise to make every effort to know and to love you more and to study your true place in the church.

O Immaculate Mother help me to keep my promise. Amen.

The priest then distributes the Marian Handbooks saying to each one as he does so:

"Receive this handbook. Study it carefully so that you may be well prepared for your act of Consecration"

 

Reception of Associates.

Priest. What do you desire?

Associate. To consecrate myself to Mary Immaculate.

Priest. Do you realise what this consecration to our Lady requires of you?

Associate. I do. To avoid anything that might separate me from the love of Christ; to nourish and strengthen the life of Christ in my soul; and to live a truly Christian life, in union with Mary for the glory of her Son and the salvation of souls.

Priest. Confident of your sincerity, I ask you to make your act of Consecration.

Associate.

O Immaculate Virgin Mary, I... have been a child of God since my Baptism. At Confirmation I accepted the dignity and responsibility of a mature Christian life. Today I freely consecrate myself to you in order to live this Christian life in a special way. Encouraged by the devotion paid to you by the Church, I give myself to you, the Mother of God and my mother, placing myself under your guidance in order that I may more effectively serve your Son and all those He came to redeem.

I undertake with the help of God’s grace, to avoid serious sin and the habit of venial sins - and to contact Christ frequently in the Sacraments of Penance and the Holy Eucharist. I desire always to advance in the knowledge and imitation of your Son, and to do His loving will in that state of life to which He calls me.

I shall try to study more deeply your role in God’s plan and in the life of the Church, so that I may be a witness for Christ among my friends my family and my acquaintances.

O Mary, conceived without sin, help each of us to live up to the ideal of our Consecration, that one day we may all come up to the full possession of our glorious inheritance in the kingdom of Our Father, through our Lord Jesus Christ.

The Priest then blesses the medals as follows:

Priest. Our help is in the name of the Lord.

Associate. Who made heaven and earth

Priest. Lord hear my prayer.

Associate. And let my cry come unto you.

Priest. The Lord be with you.

Associate. And also with you.

Let us pray.

O God, who from all eternity chose Blessed Mary, ever a Virgin, and preserved her from all sin since she was to become the Mother of Your only Son, deign to bless+ and sanctify+ these medals, that your servants may wear them with religious respect, as a mark of filial veneration for their Mother. Grant also Lord, that the sight of her blessed image increasing their devotion to the immaculate Conception of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary, they may always be favoured with her powerful intercession. Through the same Lord Jesus Christ Our Lord.

The Priest presents each one with a medal which she kisses, and he says.

"Receive this medal as the exterior sign of your Consecration to the Immaculate Virgin. Remember while wearing it that you are henceforth dedicated, with Our Lady, to the service of the Church.

In virtue of the authority which I hold and which has been granted to me by the Holy See, I admit you into the Association of the Immaculate

Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and you will henceforth have a share in all the spiritual benefits of the said association. In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

May our Lord receive you as members of the association; May He grant that you live and act according to the spirit of the Gospel; may He bestow on you the grace of perseverance that you might have eternal life; may we all merit to share in the happiness of the elect in heaven. Through the same Christ, Our Lord, Amen.

..Let us pray..

Hear O Lord, our prayers and be pleased to bless + Thy servants whom we have just received as members of the Marian Association. Grant that, assisted by Your grace, they may through their Christian and dedicated lives be faithful to their consecration and thereby obtain their eternal reward, through the same Christ Our Lord,

Associate. Amen

The reception ends with the singing of the Magnificat. The Priest reminds the new members that in order to gain the Plenary indulgence attached to their reception they should in addition to the usual conditions of confession and communion, pray for the intentions of the Sovereign Pontiff. He may to this end recite with them Our Father one Hail Mary and one Glory be to the Father.

After the reception, the names of those who have made their Act of Consecration are written in a special register.

Preparing for your consecration.

Step one.. (spoken to ‘Mary’)

O Immaculate Virgin Mary, I.............................. have been a child of God since my baptism. At Confirmation I accepted the dignity and responsibility of a mature Christian life. Today, I freely consecrate myself to you in order to live this Christian life in a special way. (Page 106)

Step two.. (spoken to ‘Mary’)

Encouraged by the devotion paid to you by the Church I give myself to you, the Mother of God and my mother, placing myself under your guidance in order that I may more effectively serve your son and all those He came to redeem.

Step three.. (spoken to ‘Mary’)

I undertake with the help of God’s grace to avoid serious sin and the habit of venial sin; and to contact Christ frequently in the Sacraments of Penance and the Holy

Eucharist. I desire always to advance in the knowledge and imitation of your son, and to do His loving will in that state of life to which He calls me.

Step four ... (spoken to ‘Mary’)

I shall try to study more deeply your role in God’s plan and in the life of the church so that I may share with you in the work of Redemption by being a witness for Christ among my family, my friends and my acquaintances.

Step five.. (spoken to ‘Mary’)

O Mary, conceived without sin, help each of us to live up to the ideal of our Consecration, that one day we may all come to the full possession of our glorious inheritance in the kingdom of our Father, through our Lord Jesus Christ.

So there is the ritual to lock young children into the clutches of this demonic deity.

Just as surely as the first three degrees in Masonic ritual lock good men into a demonic entity so these lock good women and children in.

Is there a way to be free?

Yes.

But first hear what God has to say about worship to other gods ..and about idols..

You shall have no other gods before Me.

You shall not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, Deuteronomy 5:7

So you shall not turn aside from any of the words which I command you this day, to the right or the left, to go after other gods to serve them.

But it shall come to pass, if you do not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments and His statutes which I command you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you: "Cursed shall you be in the city, and cursed shall you be in the country. "Cursed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl. "Cursed shall be the fruit of your body and the produce of your land, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks. "Cursed shall you be when you come in, and cursed shall you be when you go out.

The Lord will send on you cursing, confusion, and rebuke in all that you set your hand to do, until you are destroyed and until you perish quickly, because of the wickedness of your doings in which you have forsaken Me. "The Lord will make the plague cling to you until He has consumed you from the land which you are going to possess. "The Lord will strike you with consumption, with fever, with inflammation, with severe burning fever, with the sword, with scorching, and with mildew; they shall pursue you until you perish. 23"And your heavens which are over your head shall be bronze, and the earth which is under you shall be iron. "The Lord will change the rain of your land to powder and dust; from the heaven it shall come down on you until you are destroyed. "The Lord will cause you to be defeated before your enemies; you shall go out one way against them and flee seven ways before them; and you shall become troublesome to all the kingdoms of the earth. Deuteronomy 24:14

Worshipping other gods brings curses upon the worshippers. God writes these as warnings to His people.

To give worship to anyone or anything other than Jesus is hatred towards God and He will visit the iniquity of that upon the children to four generations.

PRAYER MINISTRY GUIDELINES

        (it is helpful to have an understanding of generational issues and soul ties)

  1. A person must know the truth and come into full agreement with the truth in order to receive successful ministry.

    This is the hardest part as the person will be well soaked in deception for many many generations and will have an in-built fear of the consequences of denying their spiritual inheritance.

  2. Repentance for believing a ‘false gospel’  (That Jesus is not ALL sufficient for salvation, rather than Jesus plus good works and right standing with the Roman Catholic Church)

 

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us. 1st John 1:8

  3.  Renounce all allegiance to the queen of heaven, present and past (generational)

"Then those of Israelite lineage separated themselves from all foreigners; and they stood and confessed their sins and the iniquities of their fathers" Nehemiah 9:2

  4.  Cleanse your home of every trace of the queen of heaven and her statue idols. 

       Destroy all Marion medals, statues, literature, etc

But you shall destroy their altars, break their sacred pillars, and cut down their wooden images ‘(for you shall worship no other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God)  Exodus 34:13

  5.  Declare truth - that Jesus and Jesus alone is our all sufficient Saviour and that the Holy

       Spirit proceeds from Him alone, and that we approach Jesus directly through the Holy

       Spirit.

  6.  Forgive parents, Priests. Nuns etc for not bringing truth.

  7.  Pray and spiritually ‘loose’ yourself from every shrine, idol, person or place associated

       with this deity. Don’t leave even one ‘seed’ in your heart or your life. Jesus said to us, His

       disciples.

And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Matthew 16:19

 

      

        • More detailed prayer ministry guidelines here
     

 8.  Deal also with fear / anxiety about reaction from family / neighbourhood / friends / etc

 

FEAR

God's protection is upon those who trust Him alone for protection e.g. Psalm 91

Those who have declared their trust in other gods, statues, saints, charms, relics etc for protection will always have fear in their hearts

Only complete cleansing and total submission to God through Jesus will remove the fear and bring peace between God and you.

For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross. And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight—if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which was preached to every creature under heaven, of which I, Paul, became a minister.  Colossians 1:19

This is a sample prayer.

Dear Lord Jesus..

Thank you for my life. It is precious to you and so Lord it is also precious to me.

Thank you for voluntarily dying on the cross at Calvary to take the punishment that should rightly be mine.

I acknowledge the completeness of your sacrifice - once and for all - and that no other sacrifice for sin is needed or acceptable to God. Your shed blood has done it all.   It is finished.

I turn away from all sin in my life and make You Lord over every area of my life.

You and You alone have the power and authority to save me and protect me and guide me . You are the only way to the Father.

From this moment on my trust is in You and You alone, my Lord and my Saviour.

Lord Jesus I confess that contrary to your word I and my family have bowed the knee to another god – the demonic being known in scripture as the queen of heaven. We have sought her favour, her protection, her guidance and we acknowledge now that this is idolatry.

I also confess to seeking guidance and protection from 'saints' rather than You alone and I turn away from this idolatrous practice also.

I now turn away with all my heart from all other gods to worship You alone.

And in Your Name I now loose my self from all generational, all family, and all personal ties to the queen of heaven, to every shrine and statue, every medal, every Marion asscociation that I have given homage or submission to.

I undertake with your help to destroy all traces of this and any other god in my life.

At Calvary You became accursed for me so that I could escape the curses of rebellion due to me.

And so I now break every curse associated with false worship off my life in Your Name Lord Jesus.

I ask that You fill me with Your Holy Spirit in order to strengthen my walk with You.

I ask this in Your precious Name Lord Jesus

Thank You for loving me.. 

Amen

I wrote this paper in the late 1990's with various additions added over the years. I praise God that in recent years other ministries have added to the understanding. Whilst this video (nearly two hours long) majors on Christmas and Easter it contains a great deal of new understanding about the spirit known as the queen of heaven and its pagan influence.

Creed formulated by the Council of Chaldean 451 A.D

"Following the holy fathers we all with one consent teach and confess one and the same Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, the same perfect in deity, and the same perfect in humanity, truly God, and the same truly Man, of reasonable soul and body, of the same substance with the Father as to His divinity, of the same substance with us as to His humanity, in all things like to us, except sin, before the ages begotten of the Father as to His deity, but in the latter days for us, and for our redemption, begotten (the same) of the Virgin Mary, the mother of God, as to His humanity, one and the same Christ, Son, Lord. Only-begotten, manifested in two natures, without confusion, without conversion, indivisibly, inseparably. The distinction of natures being by no means abolished by the union, but rather the property of each preserved and combined into one person and one hypostasis; not one severed or divided into two persons, but one and the same Son and only-begotten, viz. God, Logos, and the Lord Jesus Christ".

(Robert Clarke, in "The Christ of God" pp. 4142)."

This is the official catechism statement..

491. "Through the centuries the Church has become ever more aware that Mary, 'full of grace' through God, [Lk 1:28 .] was redeemed from the moment of her CONCEPTION. That is what the dogma of the IMMACULATE CONCEPTION confesses, as Pope Pius IX proclaimed in 1854:
The most Blessed Virgin Mary was, from the first moment of her CONCEPTION, by a singular grace and privilege of almighty God and by virtue of the merits of Jesus Christ, Saviour of the human race, preserved immune from all stain of original sin. [Pius IX, Ineffabilis Deus (1854): DS 2803.]"
