THE ARK OF APOCALYPSE is a fiction story about the very near future. The author believes that secret societies will support simultaneous civil wars throughout the world. These wars will evolve into a world wide religious war in which 75% of the world's population will die over a period of four to seven years!
He bases these beliefs on twenty years of study in prophesy. He placed 104 Church approved prophesies about the future into a computer for systematic comparisons. The total of all these prophesies painted a perfect picture of history, past and future.
Since everything predicted by these prophets up to 2007 AD has already come to pass exactly as predicted, the author properly assumes that the next few years will follow the same pattern. What follows is just an outline of what these approved prophets have said about the future.
Outline of future:
Taking off from 2007 AD … first there must be a "Chastisement of the Earth" in order to bring about Christian unity and one Christian Church on Earth although Jewish and Moslem religions will remain. We believe that this chastisement will last from four to seven years. This chastisement will start with a world wide economic crash and will end with three days of darkness. Let me repeat that "It will end (not start) with three days of darkness). We believe that during the chastisement there will be two very important people, a very holy king, called "Charles the Monarch" and a very holy Pope, a Pope who will be elected in a very fast way.
We believe that after the chastisement there will be only twenty-five percent of the world left, and it will take seven years to bury the dead. We believe that the good and the bad will survive. But we also believe that much of the bad will be converted by the Monarch and the Holy Pope.
We believe that those who survive the chastisement will have a period of peace that will be without much work or needs. (As promised by Our Lady of Fatima) We also believe that in the first part of this peace most everyone will be holy. We also believe that in the second half of this peace faith will fade and become lax.
After this period of peace on earth (We
believe it will not last more than forty or fifty years.), the Antichrist will
come. Enoch and Elias will come (maybe even
After converting the Jews and Moslems into one
religion, he will rebuild the
The last Pope (whose name will be Peter the Second) and those who refuse to be marked with his mark will go into hiding. Those who cannot hide will be martyred. More Catholics will be martyred during this time than all the two-thousand-year history of the Kingdom put together.
In the last year of his
three-and-one-half-year control of the world, the Antichrist will kill Enoch
and Elias and place their bodies in public display in front of the
This will so anger the Antichrist that he will promise the whole world that he too will ascend into heaven and bring them back to earth. On the prescribed day he will ascend up into the sky. However, Christ will strike him dead (as He did to Simon Magus), and he will fall to his death.
All the people will be very happy because the Antichrist is dead. They will be so happy that they will have parties and celebrations. They will have marriages and will give their children in marriages. And then forty-five days after the death of the Antichrist, there will be a great sign in the sky -- The Cross with Christ crucified. All the Jews, who have survived, will see and know that he is the Christ, but it will be too late.
Christ will appear in all his glory with all His Heavenly Hosts, and in the twinkling of an eye, half the people of the world will disappear into Hell.
(This is the so-called rapture preached by Protestants, but exactly the opposite of what they think, since those disappearing go to Hell.)
Those remaining will be lifted up body and soul towards Christ, who will remain in the sky. All those in Purgatory will ascend first. All the bodies of those who died, from Adam to the time of the Antichrist, will come up out of the earth and join their souls in the heavens. All this will take place as those remaining at the end ascend body and soul towards Christ.
Then Christ will wipe away the earth, purgatory, the heavens, and the stars with the movement of his hand. Amen!
Why This Book?
Considering that both the prophets of the bible and the saintly prophets since the bible paint the above outline of the future, why write this book at all? After all, even the author admits that the book is fiction because no one knows for sure how the above outline will play out or even when it will happen. In the second half of this book, called Book Two, some prophesies supporting this book are offered, but the truth is that no one knows exactly how this will happen.
When you think of the great popularity of fiction books, like Holy Blood, Holy Grail” or “The Da Vinci Code” or the many books by Father Malachi Martin, you see that people would rather read a story than the raw facts of things. When readers read these stupid books they think they are true even when the author says they are fiction. If then, people are going to trust an easy to read fiction story over the raw facts, then perhaps the best way to teach the facts is by a fiction story.
Foreword by Author
Isaac Asimov has written hundreds of books with one basic idea. He rewrites scientific theories or facts in a way that the average reader can understand. That is my justification for writing this book. It is time that some very difficult theological arguments were presented in a way that even those readers who only read for fun would read.
God has been pouring warnings and messages over the earth but few are listening! Satan disguised as The Holy Spirit, Jesus, or Mary has been appearing all over the world for the past sixty years, (false apparitions) and it seems that everyone is listening to him. I hope this book helps to get more interest in God's warnings. I hope that it will also help the reader to understand what Satan might have to gain by making people follow him into what seems to be a holier, less sinful, and more religious life.
THIS IS A FICTION STORY in that it has fictional personalities and fictional situations. This is the best fictional description of the NEAR FUTURE that my research could come up with. It is based on true facts and prophesies. I believe what will happen (in the VERY NEAR FUTURE) will be so much like this story you will think you are watching a movie that you have seen before.
For over thirty years, I have been obsessed with the study of prophesy. Most of that time, I ran up the wrong trees. However, over a period of time, a pattern began to develop. This pattern seemed so certain and yet, in some ways, so very confusing. The answers only came to me when I realized that my brain was too small to assimilate, delete, sort, analyze, and compare thousands of prophesies. However, modern technology had just the thing to do all of these things: THE COMPUTER! And so, I purchased the best one I could find and added the proper file and search programs to a very good word processor.
After first learning how to use this monster, I began by gathering all the prophets and prophesies. I entered them all into the computer, eliminated those that might not be authentic. To do this, I used the following formula:
1) The prophet had to have made short-term prophesies that have already come to pass.
2) The prophet had to be without error whatsoever.
3) The prophet had to have a strong saintly life.
4) The prophet had to have some other prophesies that had not come to pass as of yet.
5) And last, but not least, it could not be about the second coming of Christ and the end of the world, since I had already proved that this could not happen in the next 50 to 100 years.
I finally was left with only 104 prophecies about the future that I could use in my computer. For an example of those which I did not use and my reasons, I will offer two examples out of hundreds eliminated.
One example is Nostradamus. Michael de Nostradame made many prophecies that came to pass, but he also made many that did not. Two other factors played a part in my leaving him out of my formula. He was NOT a holy man (FAR FROM IT)! There is reason to believe that he had access to a computation of legitimate prophecies which he then rewrote in his own hidden style and passed them off as his own.
Another example is Melanie Clavat, who was a legitimate seer of the Apparitions of La Salette. However, in her later life, she became obsessed with her own importance and thought that people should regard her as a saint. She finally became involved with a possessed man and began to make many false prophecies that had the effect of drowning her original legitimate ones.
Garabandal, Bayside, and Medjugorje were all found to be
tricks of Satan, as were the non-canonical gospels of the early Church, such as
"The Essene Gospel of
Nevertheless, I was finally left with 104 prophecies about the future that seemed to be flawless. Then, using key words to compare one prophecy with another, and filling in the blanks left out by one prophet but used by another, the computer began to tell a story. As it unfolded before my eyes on the screen, I became amazed. I couldn't believe what I was seeing! Some of the information was so difficult to believe that I spent hours, then days, then weeks and then months in one library after another, checking and rechecking the validity of the information. It was perfect to the letter.
I began to see how God used the prophets and how we should have used them for thousands of years. No prophet gave one hundred percent of the information needed for a perfect understanding of the future. But, as the prophesied events grew closer and closer, more and more information was revealed to other prophets in other generations.
Some prophets were used by God to interpret and explain the
hidden meanings in older prophecies.
Like Venerable Mary of Agreda, who in the seventeenth century wrote the
perfect explanation of the "City of
The story you are about to read is written in fiction, third person form, so that the reader can easily understand what many thousands and thousands of pages of prophecy reveals. I have found that the vast majority of readers don't understand prophecy directly as written. And so, I offer you an easy way to see what may happen in the future without having to spend twenty years of gathering information.
Read this book strictly for fun; if, however, things start to happen as outlined in this book, read it again. Read it again for life saving information.

The colossal ship inched its way slowly up to the mooring.
The hull was black with "Lykes Lines" written in bold white lettering
on the side. A dozen white cranes reached up into the thick, wet fog from its
deck. Crowds of dirty, virulent looking Frenchmen came running up to the edge
of the dock carrying guns, clubs, picks, and whatever else they could find for
a weapon. The captain peered over the side at the forming mob, but appeared to
be unconcerned. He was a very short Japanese man with a long, ragged beard,
heavy black overcoat, and black sea cap. The dock was up the
The moment the ramp touched down on the dock, the mob charged up the ramp and onto the ship, pushing and shoving each other to board first. Frantically, they rushed around the deck, then down the various stairways that led into the holds of the ship. Through every room and on every deck they scoured and searched, not even knowing or caring what they were looking for. The ship was completely empty. No cargo. No food. No fuel. No loot. The hostile mob cursed and swore at one other, indignant that there was nothing to take. Some beat on the walls and equipment of the ship with their weapons in outrage.
One surly group decided to raid the captain's deck and turned as a unit towards the white stairs to begin the climb. Suddenly they stopped in their tracks, frightened by the site above them. Standing on the top of the landing was a 7 foot 4 inch powerful black man. He was holding a two barrel 50 caliber machine gun in one hand while the other was stuffed into the pocket of a heavy, full-length, black overcoat. He stared down at the mob without fear or even anger. There was no expression on his face whatsoever. They slowly backed down the stairs without taking their eyes off the giant. Then turning away, they continued their search until they were satisfied that the ship was empty. They would have killed the captain if it hadn't been for the tall man who stood in front of him known as Simon of Ethiopia.
Simon turned and looked down at the captain. "Thank you, Hank. I hope that we meet again." He paused, looking down at the ship's deck and rubbed the tip of the two barrel gun across his feet. "Thank you. The time for sacrifice is here." Simon reached out and held Hank's hand gently. "Goodbye, Hank. May God protect you!"
"Good hunting, Simon!" Tears were rolling down the Captain’s weathered face. "May this truly be the beginning! If so … you are a very special man." The captain hugged Simon tightly, but his hands could only reach halfway around his enormous waist.
Simon walked slowly down the stairs through the mob that quickly separated to let him pass. He walked down the ship's ramp and across the dock without looking back. Two armed men met him at the end of the dock where they exchanged greetings and led him to an old American army Jeep. As they sped away, the captain watched from the deck where he remained. After they were out of sight, he turned to look down at the mob. They stared up at him without moving.
The dilapidated looking Jeep moved swiftly down a cobblestone
street next to the river. They drove quickly around the tired, battered walls
of one of
They sped up a ramp and into the court of the large fort. The two men led Simon inside through an enormous gallery lavishly decorated with beautiful antique tapestries which caught his eye, but then swiftly hustled him out the back door. Outside again, Simon followed them down a path lined with rose bushes and into a small clearing in the trees. There, in the center of the opening, sat a modified Apache AHH-64 helicopter with two Hellfire missiles attached to her belly, front and aft machine guns, and extra gas tanks, all painted black. There were signs on both sides, but layers of black tape hid the lettering.
Simon walked over to the chopper without saying a word. He scurried around to the other side and examined everything. He looked up through the opening in the trees at the still-foggy sky. He still carried his 50 caliber in his right hand with deceptive ease. He was so large that his gun appeared to be average sized but was not. He walked purposefully back to the two men and asked "You have The Letter?"
The Frenchman silently reached into his overcoat and handed a leather covered folder to Simon. It was sealed with a wax seal. Simon checked the seal against the one on his ring, and then looked back at the men. With affection but without a smile, he placed his left hand first on one man's shoulder and then on the other's. With that, he turned away from them and climbed into the black chopper. He looked at his odd companions as they backed away, and then he started the engine.
Slowly, he lifted up through the trees and into the fog. He
pulled off to the right and over the
After being aloft for several hours, Simon spotted a large corn field with an elaborate eight-pointed cross cut into the rows of corn. He checked his map again, circled the area looking for anything out of place; then began to descend into the center of the cross. At the head of the cross was an old truck filled with corn. A dark-haired, middle-aged man sat motionless in the driver's seat and stared at Simon through the dirty window. When the blades stopped and all was quiet, the man started his truck and crept very slowly toward the chopper, his eyes fixed on Simon. He stepped out of the truck and pulled a long gas hose from inside the corn and drew it toward the chopper. He refueled both tanks, continuing to stare at the large and silent man who just watched from his seat. When the man finished, he replaced the hose, glanced furtively at Simon one last time, and backed his truck all the way to the head of the cross.
Simon restarted the engine and was quickly airborne. He headed south. He would spot two more crosses before reaching his destination but did not land. As the sun was setting, Simon thought about why he was in this chopper and why he was doing what he was doing.
The sun was rising again. Though he had not slept, Simon was
alert and easily spotted the landmarks. He was close. He scrutinized the ground
below him. There it was. To his left was the obscure stone castle, the Tour
Magdale. There was the
Merlin, the Hermit
Simon quickly stepped down from the Apache, checked his overcoat for the letter, and began walking up the hill. About halfway to the top, he saw the entrance to the cave. He laid his gun on the ground, took off his overcoat, and then retrieved his weapon. Under his coat he wore a long, white, sleeveless robe with a large eight-pointed white and gold cross on the right side of his chest. Between the arms of the cross were two lions and two horses in gold, trimmed with a gold circle on a black background. He walked over to the entrance of the cave.
Inside the cave, an old priest turned and saw the silhouette of the huge man with the cannon in his hand. The old priest was sitting, facing the cave entrance, when Simon entered. Simon could not see the priest, but he could see the eight candles surrounding the simple altar of homemade statues. They illuminated the cave, but cast shadows around the old man. Finally, Simon spotted the outline of the seated priest, but his face remained obscure in the shadowy darkness.
"Are you the priest they call Merlin, The Hermit?" asked Simon.
After a short silence, Merlin replied simply, “Yes.”
"I have the letter," Simon informed the stoic figure.
"Are you Simon?" Merlin inquired.
"I am," he replied.
Merlin stared at Simon for a long time. Through the dim light, Merlin could tell that he was a Herculean man. His height was obvious, but the priest could also see that Simon was also very unafraid. He said, "Come in."
Simon entered slowly and stepped into the candlelight. His white robe with the bright eight-pointed white and gold cross sparkled in the flickering lights. His double barreled machine gun seemed to magnify the light and reflect it brightly in every direction. His immense arms strained against the sleeves of his black shirt. Despite his imposing presence, Merlin was not at all disturbed and remained seated.
Simon could now see The Hermit he had heard so much about. Although Merlin remained seated, Simon guessed him to be above average height. He could tell that the old man was extremely thin and Simon estimated his age at round ninety years. The old priest had a commanding air about him that filled the room. His eyes twinkled as he looked at the letter as though he was looking forward to the events that were going to unfold. Eventually, Merlin rose up authoritatively and approached Simon. He was about six feet tall and walked with a slight limp. His hair and beard were very long and white as snow. His face and hands were very rough, Simon observed, probably from living this way. “It can’t be an easy life for such an old guy”, he thought. He was dressed in a simple brown wool robe that had an attached hood. Around his waist was a rope tied in a knot at one side. Strung through the rope was a three foot long cord Rosary. Merlin extended his hand, "You have The Letter?"
"Yes sir" replied Simon, handing the leather folder to Merlin. “Oh damn, he thought, he is a priest, not a Colonel, I should have said, yes Father.”
Merlin checked the seal against his ring. "Ah! The time has finally come!" Merlin paced back and forth in the cave, looking at the folder and the Seal, shaking his head and letting out long sighs of near disbelief, "So long! So long!" Finally he looked at Simon. "Where is The Ark?"
There was a long silence. Simon had guarded The Ark for the last two years and had never followed any other orders except to keep silent about what he knew, silent except for the man standing before him. It felt strange now to be free to share the secrets he knew. The words would be hard to say; they had remained secret for so long. He also did not even know why he was to reveal the information to the old Hermit, but Merlin seemed to understand much more than Simon did. Actually, Merlin seemed to know a great deal without having Simon say anything at all. He knew Simon's name and he knew that the letter was for The Ark, even without Simon telling him. But now, the words had to come out. It was an order.
"He's………He's on the
"He was in
"Does he know who you are?" Merlin queried, as he ran his hand down his long pure white beard and stared with one eye at the tall black man.
"No sir, I mean Father, He has no idea. We took him,
his wife, and his children during a stormy night. They fought us and did not
want to go. His father had just died the
week before and The Ark wanted to stay near his grave. It was very hard to move
"OK! OK! How do we get there, way out in the
Even though Merlin stopped pacing, it was quite obvious that he was provoked by the news. Merlin understood the need for security as his own Monastery had been bombed years before, forcing him to move into this cave for protection. His real name was Abbott Chardone, but he had taken the new name, Merlin, matching the secret task he had been assigned. He w as the “keeper of the secrets.” Only the “Order” called him Merlin.
"We must go now,” said Simon, “but the journey will not be quick. We will take our time as we must be very cautious. Everything is arranged just as it has been for many years."
"Yes! Many, many years, more years than you think!" Merlin picked up a small, round bag and gestured to Simon to the door. "Let's go! The world is waiting."
Simon stepped out of the cave and was taken aback when Merlin limped right behind him, so close as to seem to be pushing him to move faster. They walked down the small mountain towards the black chopper. In the distance, Simon could see two men with AK-47s, one on each hill, on both sides of the chopper. He knew they would be there, even if he did not know who they were. They had one job and only one job: to protect The Hermit. At last, their task was coming to an end as Simon took charge of the old man.
Merlin looked ahead to the chopper. "I suppose I'm
going to have to get into that metal contraption, aren't I?” Merlin murmured in
an irritated tone. “I've never been in one before and I don't think I'm going
to like it. No! I'm definitely not going to like this. Will this thing get us
"No, this chopper could never go that far,” Simon replied when Merlin stopped to take a breath. “We will be going by ship. But this will get us to that ship where we will continue our journey. It's not far from here, in that direction."
Merlin turned to see where Simon was pointing. "In the
"By ship?” Merlin protested again. “That is going to be slow. We must get there as quickly as possible. Even though time has waited for this moment for thousands of years, and waited patiently, from now on time is our enemy. Let's go!"
Simon looked at him incredulously. “This old coot was full of piss and vinegar,” he laughed to himself. Simon had a lot of questions, but kept silent. He helped The Hermit into the chopper respectfully. Simon knew only one thing; the Hermit had all the answers. All the rest of The Order had bits and pieces, but The Hermit, and only The Hermit knew everything. No one else on the face of the earth could put it all together except Merlin. Merlin was the guardian of the principal secrets. Simon knew some things, other members knew more, but Merlin knew it all. This was the reason he was called “keeper of the secrets – Merlin.”
Simon stared at the man he had wanted to meet for so many years, but still didn't ask any questions. He knew that within a few days he would know all he needed to know, since he was the guardian. From now on, everywhere Merlin or The Ark went, Simon would be there also protecting them. Simon would soon know more than any other member of The Order.
Simon started the engine and Merlin stared up at the blades as they began spinning, faster and faster and faster. Simon pulled back on the stick and the helicopter began rising off of the ground rapidly. Merlin grabbed the sides of his seat, closed his eyes and gritted his teeth, but said nothing. Simon looked at him and smiled with admiration and pride. Admiration, because he could tell that Merlin was terrified from never having been off the ground before, but he was determined! Proud, because Simon was now in control of the situation! This was his expertise and The Hermit had to trust him and Simon knew that he was right to do so.
They rose up to above two thousand feet and then headed out
to sea. Merlin shut his eyes as they sped toward the open water. Within what
seemed like only a few minutes, Simon saw the
“Wait!, said Simon. "Not yet! Just a few more seconds!'
Suddenly, the deck of the oil tanker began to shudder and the entire section of the deck that the chopper had landed on began to sink. It descended very slowly until the chopper was below the upper deck. A crew of men pushed the chopper off the lowering platform onto the lower deck and then Simon turned around to watch the platform rise back to its original place at the top deck.
"OK! Now we can get out." He reached across and opened the door for Merlin. Two men helped Merlin from the chopper.
Simon and Merlin found themselves in what used to be the oil
compartment of the ship. They followed the men over to an iron ladder leaning
firmly on the side of the tank and gestured for Merlin to climb up. Merlin
never hesitated. Even though he was quite old, he grabbed the ladder and began
what Simon thought would be a difficult climb for the old man. Without help,
Merlin made it to the top and was led to his small, simply furnished room. He
immediately began to set up a table for
Simon went out on the upper deck to look out to the open sea
and think about all of the things that had happened so far. The
Two hours went by and Simon remained on the deck looking out at the open sea. He made no attempt now to hide his robe. The white robe was just a cotton cloth ten feet long and four feet wide with a hole in the center for his head. It had an eight-pointed white and gold cross on the front.
Simon had received his robe two years before, but this was the first time that he could wear it openly. An alarm sounded. Suddenly men started running all over the tanker. One section of the deck, about ten by ten, opened up, and a strange-looking gun popped up from below with no gunner at the seat. Judging by the looks of the thing, no gunner was needed. It had over 100 50-calaber barrels banked in 10 rows of 10 and a radar disc on top.
Simon looked out to sea. A dark, ominous looking vessel was rapidly approaching. Simon grabbed some binoculars from a table nearby and scanned the other ship for people. He could see no one. Everyone on board Simons’ ship looked prepared for battle. Several Knights pointed hand-held rocket launchers at the ship. After a few minutes of tension, another ship appeared as if out of nowhere. Simon let out a sigh of relief as an American aircraft carrier charged and almost ran over the other ship. The unfriendly ship turned and ran off into the darkness.
The carrier turned and slowly moved along side of the oil tanker. They stayed side by side until they reached the mouth of the sea, the Straits of Gibraltar. The straits were mined, but passage through was possible if you knew how. The ship captain knew exactly what to do.
The American carrier turned back into the
Simon finally went below deck to his room next to Merlin’s. The room consisted of a small bed, a chest of drawers and a lamp. There was also a small writing desk with a lamp. He lay on the bed with his knees bent so that he could fit his enormous length on it. He knew he would not be able to sleep even though he had not slept for the past two days. He knew he would not sleep, because this was what he was waiting for all these years. He knew he wouldn't sleep, and suddenly he lost consciousness and fell asleep.
Simon never woke until he found himself shaken by a man he didn't know.
”Wake up!, wake up! My friend! We are here. We are here. You must hurry."
It took a minute for the giant to remember what and where he was. Then Simon jumped up and out of bed. He was still in his clothes and he still wore his white robe. He ran to the small sink and rinsed the sleep from his eyes. There was a tray of food placed on the bed and as Simon had not eaten for a long time, he gulped down some of the food. The man who still remained a stranger to him tried to hand him his 50 caliber gun but he could not lift it. Simon smiled and picked it up with one hand and left the room. The stranger just stared after him as he marveled at the gentle spirited giant.
Merlin's door was open, but he was not inside. At the foot
of the stairs, a man signaled to Simon to climb up to the upper deck. Merlin
was leaning on the rail looking out to the
Merlin turned around and faced the seven foot, four inch giant. He looked up at him, but with a look that told Simon who was the boss and said "Are you ready? Let's go!"
Simon looked around and saw that the chopper had already been raised to the upper deck. Twelve men stood around it looking like pillars in a circle, all staring at Simon. "Let's go!" responded Simon, motioning the hermit towards the black machine with the four arms waiting to spin.
Within four minutes, Simon was lowering the helicopter down
on an open deck next to a two-story building on the top of one of the many
Simon turned off the engine and the two men waited as the blades slowly came to a stop. Merlin just sat there, not moving a muscle as Simon looked at him. No one came up to the chopper to greet them. The entire area was strangely quiet, almost frighteningly so. Simon waited for The Hermit to speak. Finally Merlin turned towards the tall black man. "What are we waiting for? Let’s go!"
They stepped down from the chopper, and walked slowly towards the building. It looked even more dingy close up. When they looked back, the view of the sea from where they stood was breathtaking. Two big glass doors that had obviously been recently scrubbed separated the interior from the deck. Merlin waited, and Simon reached out and opened the door.
Standing a few feet inside, like a beautiful goddess, was the most gorgeous woman Simon had ever seen. She was not afraid of the sight of the big black man. She stood with dignity and authority even though she wore a pink night robe and had obviously just risen from sleep. Her hair was pulled back and tied with a single ribbon and then hung down her back almost three feet. Her face was olive brown and without any makeup. Prominent was her eyes, brilliant green and not afraid to look directly into your eyes with confidence.
Simon stepped aside to allow Merlin room to get by him.
"My Lady, Good Morning! I'm Father Merlin. I'm looking
for Philip, who I believe is your husband. I assume you are
Without the slightest embarrassment for being in her bathrobe, she made no expression of irritation, but greeted Father Merlin and Simon politely. She made no reply but with queenly dignity, she walked out onto the deck past Merlin and past the giant. She glided to the edge of the patio and looked down. She appeared very heavyhearted as she pointed down the mountain replying, "Down there."
Merlin limped over to the edge as fast as he could, and Simon beat him to the rail. The woman was pointing to a small stone shed about two hundred feet below. It was next to a small chapel. A trail twisted down to the stone building with red tile roof. It was about ten feet wide, twenty feet long, and had no walls.
"Thank you, my lady. We are his friends."
"Certainly! Of course! All of you say the same thing. That is why we are here, on this island, in this jail, because you are all our friends." Sophia walked away and exited through the glass doors, throwing the words over her shoulder at them but not looking back.
"If only she knew!" thought Merlin, as he watched
her leaving the patio, "If only she knew!" Merlin waved a finger at
Simon and the two men started down the trail. They passed the small pilgrimage
"Are you Philip?" Merlin said into the silence.
Philip, startled, looked up at Merlin. Philip had light brown hair that was long and very curly. His nose was long and hooked at the end. He had not shaved as it was before 7:00 AM in the morning. He was dressed in tennis shoes, blue jeans and a tee shirt. His eyes and face showed no fear, only anger and determination, "I'm Philip Von Habsburg!"

Philip stood up and then knelt down in front of the hermit and kissed his hand. Then he sat down heavily and looked at the coffin. He turned towards the giant black man and stared at his mammoth size for a few minutes. He wondered to himself about the white robe with the White and Gold Cross. He turned back to look at Merlin. "What do you want of me?" he asked.
"I have a letter for you from The Holy Father." Merlin handed the sealed leather folder to Philip.
"The Holy Father? The Holy Father? I knew Pope
"He sent this letter to you! It has the seal! Open it!"
Philip looked down at the seal and recognized its authenticity. It was real, "Why me?" He pulled on the ribbon and opened the leather folder, reading the letter:
"Peter, Bishop, servant of the servants of God, extends greetings and the Apostolic Benediction to my beloved son in Christ, and faithful Christian, Philip Von Habsburg.
"Even though it is not allowed, and even though my
fellow servants in Christ and I will be in great danger, I shall return to
"It is imperative that you come to
Your Servant in Christ, Benedict, Bishop of Rome"
Philip looked up at Merlin. "What is this? What does he want of me? The Holy Father! Me? What's going on here?"
He looked back at the letter, and then up at the black man, as if to ask for help, but said nothing. Then he asked Merlin, "How shall this be accomplished? How do we go?”
"It has been arranged. We will take you safely."
"Now! As soon as you can leave! We cannot take your
family with us. The danger is too great in
Philip thought for a few moments, bowed his head in sorrow and then softly, almost in a whisper said, "Let's go!"
He looked over at the coffin. It contained the remains of
his grandfather, Charles Von Habsburg. Charles was the last Emperor of Europe.
He had died in exile on this island on the 1st of April 1922 ….. April fool’s
Day!!! His father, Otto, was just a small boy at the time. Otto became a writer
and columnist in order to support the family. Philip was born in

The Cause of the War
Simon lifted Philip and Merlin off the patio deck, flew down
the mountain, and set the chopper down gently on the oil tanker. As the chopper
again descended, the ship was already moving. Simon climbed out. Philip helped
Father Merlin and the threesome entered Merlin's cabin for
"What happened to this world, Father? How did this all
start? Has the whole world gone mad?" Philip seemed sad and confused,
looking for answers, but not expecting any. Philip was about forty years old.
Just as it was before World War I, there was no easy answer to this question. There were many reasons. Merlin believed that the war was planned by a secret group of men, but that it backfired on them and now was out of control.
"Petrogold!" the good father said.
"Petrogold?" questioned Philip. "What is Petrogold, oil?"
"Yes, but it is more than that! It is power, a greater power than armies or even money. At one time the world's wealth depended upon the slave trade. The slave traders of yesterday were in fact the Illuminati and the KKK. But, when the slave trade ended, they moved quickly to gain control of the new thing that would produce the industrial wealth of the world: fuel. The three major oil companies of the world were all owned by members of the Illuminati."
Philip objected, "It was not the oil companies that started this war, but the Moslems. Why would the Oil Companies, the Illuminati, want a world-wide economic crash and civil wars? Islam wants to take over the world."
The entire world was in a massive economic crash except the
"They didn't!" snapped Merlin. "They owned and printed the American Dollar and the Euro. They profited from every note they printed by lending it out at interest, mostly to governments. But they lost control of the very governments they set up and controlled, and those governments turned against them. The Illuminati created their own enemy and ours."
"You mean the Moslem countries," offered Philip.
"Yes, but Big Oil should have known better. They set up
Hitler to stop the oil pipeline to
"Why couldn't they just get rid of the Radical Moslems as well? What happened?"
"Miscalculation!" Merlin pondered all he knew
about the Illuminati and drifted off into deep thought. Should he give Philip a
complete history of the Illuminati and their recent meetings that caused World
War III, in spite of their carefully contrived plan? “Let us go for a walk on the upper deck. The night is warm and the stars should be
bright out here in the
Philip and Father Merlin got up and went out to walk along the upper deck of the tanker ship. It was the size of a football field not counting the captain’s deck and crew cabins. Neither Philip nor Merlin knew that below their feet in the huge oil compartment were thousands of specially developed weapons from hand held 9 mm to 50 caliber riffles to rocket and missal launchers.
They walked down one side of the tanker and back the other
side. Simon followed closely behind so that he could hear and learn what was
being said. They were far off the coast of
The good Father knew about the Illuminati meetings early in 1984 and the later meetings at the Russian Politburo in March that same year. Merlin thought about explaining this to Philip but concluded it would be too hard to understand at this time so he just made it simple.
"It started in
Philip interrupted, “I thought the bombing of the oil fields
“Yes! But all these things all happened at the same time:
riots, bombings of utility plants and in almost every country in the world at
the same time. The fall of the French
government and the nation's inability to form a new one is typical of what
happened everywhere else. The French and
Italians suffered massive unemployment as a result, and, as you well know, the
Moslems are very strong in
Merlin went on and on, trying as well as he could to explain
why people throughout the world were engaged in civil wars while at the same
time many other countries were fighting international wars. War infected every
corner of the earth. Philip leaned against the railing looking down at the
water. They were turning into the
What everyone knew was that the Moslem world stopped the flow of gas to the world and sparked bombings and riots everywhere in the world where Moslems lived. But what Merlin wanted Philip to know was the history. Philip needed to know how the Western Democracies deliberately let Radical Islam come back into power after breaking them up in World War I.
Merlin carefully considered what Philip needed to know versus what was just too much information. Merlin himself had been informed of the first meetings through the Order's spy system. He had read the minutes of meetings held over the past 30 years and he pondered over them.
The first meeting was in early 1984 in
"Gentlemen, because of Ronald Reagan and Pope John
"In counties where we control the government, communism or socialism works best because we simultaneously control the natural resources. When we eventually control the basic source of production, we will control the world. In the past, all the way back to the Egyptian Empire, slavery was this source of production. Today, in the aftermath of the Industrial Revolution, energy is the source of production.
"With governments currently in control of oil, gas, water and electrical power, we only have to deal with a few people who we can control. This works best in socialism and its child, communism. If you remember back to 1914, there was a split between those who believed that the communist method of power was necessary and those who believed that the democratic method of socialism would work better because people could be easily bribed. So, we established Commuism in the East, and Socialism in the West. Then we watched to see what worked best for us.
"Today, for us and our purposes, Democratic Socialism is working best. However, we need a broader, more centralized government. We have relied until now upon the United Nations, but that institution has grown into a mutated octopus with too many tentacles to control! It is not serving our needs as it should."
At the end of that meeting, it was decided to end the Cold
War and support the European Union instead of
the Central Committee of the Communist Party, and the Supreme Ideologists! However, the real power behind the Politburo was the Illuminati, the meeting was in fact instigated by them.
No one noticed anything out of the ordinary, because these
meetings were held every Tuesday. In
"Gentlemen, we can no longer sustain a Cold War with
the West. Our economy has suffered substantial deterioration over the last
seventy years. In fact, the pace of our economic decline has quickened over the
most recent few years and our situation is critical. At the same time, the
economy of the West has enjoyed spectacular growth since 1914, despite its setbacks in the 1930's and periodic recessions thereafter. Except for our own nuclear deterrent, we have no conventional defense against the West.
"Although we split from the European Socialists in
1914, it seems that we should now consider rejoining them. I believe it is only
in this way that we will be able to gain the international influence and power
that we have been seeking. To accomplish this, we must be perceived by the
West, and in
The General Secretary paused for a minute, looked at his notes, and then continued:
"We must support and help the European Union and, in
time, join with it. It has become self-evident that we cannot defeat
"I would like the Politburo to consider that we have
not taken over a country in the last six years by infiltration. The
Finally, a perplexed Major General Borg spoke, "How do we manage to bring to an end a seventy year-old system of government?"
Molotish, the hard-nosed head of the KGB, slowly rose out of his chair to get everyone's attention. When at last silence descended over the table, he sat down imperially, leaned forward with an authoritative air, and spoke slowly and decisively into his microphone, "Will we not look like we just lost the war?"
Kolomonish, the head of GRU responded, "Not if we plan it very carefully."
Molotish persisted: "Though appearances are important, and our global standing cannot be ignored, I really do not care if we call it communism, socialism, or democracy so long as we continue to hold absolute power."
With that, the meeting ended surprisingly early. It had been
easier than anticipated to generate the consensus the Illuminati needed to
carry off this daring scheme. Later in
"We have the communist leaders believing that ending
communism is in their best interest. They have 20% of the world's oil reserves.
We can take control of that, modernize their technology, pump it into Europe
countries. Our goal is to put an end to the United Nations. In its place, we will construct three geopolitical entities. We will build a United Europe, United America, and United Asia. Each region will have its own currency: the Euro, the Amero, and the Asian. The Dollar will continue to be the international currency, but it will not be controlled by
“Nationalism will prevent us from calling these entities
governments, so we will have to call them Economic or Defense Treaties, Congresses, or Co-operatives.
Any name will do, but we must not favor any one nation or existing name. At
length, there will be only three world-wide governments
and only four currencies. In the meantime, we must solve the escalating Moslem problem, especially as it has a profound impact on our oil supply."
Philip looked at Father Merlin, who started walking
again. Merlin was quiet for a long time
and Philip wondered what he was thinking about.
There was still no land in sight, only stars and ocean. Everything was calm. What Merlin wanted the
"Philip, as you know, in the last 100 years we have
fought two world wars, given birth to the first atheistic governments in the
history of the world, warped individual morality by popularizing and spreading
all manner of birth control, legalized abortion and homosexuality, and then even
went so far as
to try to force homosexuality and abortion on the rest of the world. In some countries, we have even outlawed religion! Have you considered whether or not all of this was random, or carefully planned?
“Notice that all of these events have one common denominator that distinguishes them: they all attack humanity by first attacking the living principles that God has laid down for us. This commonality suggests not randomness, but active planning. In our world, who hates God, and therefore his children, with such intensity while at the same time possessing both the global reach and the financial wherewithal to execute such a plan? Yes! The Illuminati!
"These elites (those invisible, fabulously wealthy people lurking behind and controlling national leaders) consider the earth's natural resources their private possessions and they do not want to share them with any emerging, developing Third World Countries. They also consider anything but "Aryans' their slaves and just another natural resource that they can exploit for their own gain, as they did with the North and South American slave trade.
"The Real Power (the Illuminati) wanted to keep developing countries as backward countries so that they could take their natural resources - oil, gold, food, minerals, and gems and use them for themselves. They especially wanted this cheap labor to be used to steal these things and ship them to the leading nations of the world. The Illuminati controlled these nations, so they would naturally assume control of these plundered resources. As you know, whoever controls natural resources has immense power. The pursuit of this power via control of the world's most valuable resources (especially human resources) is the reason for all the wars throughout the history of the world.”
Merlin was on a role now and did not want to stop but Philip interrupted.
“Father, are you trying to tell me that a small group of
Philip could not accept any Western peoples supporting Jihad. Philip knew that Jihad was prophesied by Mohammed followers since the eighth century and the 12 caliphs. Philip knew that traditional Moslems would never accept a world of many faiths, not even the Mason’s two gods.
But Merlin would not let Philip change the flow of thought.
“Philip, understand first how we came to this point. Then you will see that Our Lady used a satanic force to destroy another satanic force. But to end this war we must know the cause and the enemy. Follow my thinking!
“After the industrial revolution, money and power derives
from oil. John David Rockefeller was one of the first to see this and although
not in the oil business himself, founded Shell oil, now Standard Oil. What he
did was develop oil tankers for the railroad and lease them cheaply to wildcat
oil riggers and oil refineries, causing a great expansion of oil exploration, production,
and refining. At the moment of greatest advantage, he withdrew his leases from
them. No longer having the means to get their oil to market, they were forced
to choose between bankruptcy or selling out to Rockefeller. That was really no
decision at all. In this way, he captured all the oil in

care. He probably knew everything that
was being said since his father, Otto, was a very well educated and political

Philip did not say a word but he could not believe that all
these wars were planed to control oil and planed by the very people he knew
well. Merlin, however, did not stop
talking and Philip was not yet sleepy. A
chill came over him but he just watched the sea and the long line of light the
Moon made against the water. Merlin made sure that Philip was listening and
then went on. He was obsessed with

"What did the Illuminati want?" Philip seemed to understand the history but not the motivation.
"Financial security at first! They became powerful in
the early 17th century by buying cheap goods from
“There is nothing wrong with this. That is just good business. You are implying that they are the real enemy and created this war and the problems we are having in the world today. I see it as strictly a Moslem or religious war. I see it as Radical Islam trying to take over the world. I do not see what the Illuminati has to do with all this.”
“You have to understand why they became organized into a group of the world’s most wealthy people and then how they created the hatred that breaded the Radical Islamic branch of what was becoming a moderate religion. But you must go back to why they organized in the first place.
"They soon began to fear the loss of their wealth to governments, either through taxation or outright confiscation. They had the money alright, but governments had armies. At the whim of a despot or two, all could be lost. So, to protect their wealth, they met and decided to devise and execute the most sophisticated plans in human history for one objective only - to protect themselves against all governments.”
“That seems logical,” interrupted Philip, “I would have done the same thing. This is still not a condemnation of these people.”
“That is true,” Merlin offered, “but to do this they had to find ways to control governments. At first, they bribed government officials, kings, prime ministers, and presidents. Soon, they realized that this was futile. They would never exhaust the number of extended hands, and as those hands grew stronger as they fed off their growing wealth, they could be turned against the Illuminati. These captains of capitalism understood that there was indeed no honor among thieves. They had to find a different way. So, they advanced their thinking and realized that they had to become more powerful than governments. The bribes that they would pay in the future would be the very titles of king, prime minister, and president.
“They would place their own hand-picked favorites in the
state houses of their choice, but retained the power to remove any independent
rebel. The Illuminati knew that they had to become so powerful, and so wealthy,
that they would either control a nation's armed forces themselves, or maintain
their own secret, hidden army. As profitable as their current businesses were,
they needed additional, large sources of revenue. The answer was the African
slave trade. They were the first to get into the slave trade and in fact
instigated the Civil War in
"Eventually, the slave trade was outlawed almost world
wide. Fortunately for the Illuminati, this happened virtually at the same time
as the next, greatest source of wealth in the modern economy surfaced: OIL.
Philip was getting impatient with Merlin but said nothing. This was not getting to the point of what was obviously a war of religion, Moslems against the rest of the world. He knew Mason’s believe in two gods, Lucifer and God, and he knew the Illuminati’s satanic rituals were sinful but he did not consider their wealth sinful. In fact, Philip thought their business practices were rather smart.
But Merlin was about to show how a few rich people and their greed caused all the wars then and even now.
"Suddenly across the globe in
"Funny thing about all this was that none of these countries
made weapons and yet these rebels, dictators, drug lords, and Islamic radicals
had all the most modern weapons at their disposal without limits. Toward the
end of the twentieth century, the industrialized countries suddenly began to
"Cheap labor was the one constant in the plans of the
Illuminati. As the 1970's dawned, many third world nations were eagerly
anticipating the benefits of their emerging modern economies. This could not be
tolerated because it would free them from the iron grip of the Illuminati. So,
a simple plan was devised.
"Unable to continue the development they had started, poor counties were forced to borrow massive amounts of money from the World Bank just to keep their economies functioning. In an unholy homage to J.D. Rockefeller, the World Bank was controlled by the same big three oil companies. In time, they foreclosed on these loans and exchanged them for control of the natural resources of these countries. The people had no idea their patrimony had been auctioned off to the lowest bidder, or that soon they would become enslaved in an altogether new way: buying the water, power, and fuels they needed to survive would consume their modest incomes. In short, they were working just to pay for what had been stolen from them."
Merlin and Philip walked back and forth on the deck of the oil tanker and both men were struck by the stark contrast of what they saw: toward God's heaven was a night sky punctuated with an endless array of luminous stars while here on Man's Earth guards stood watch on all four sides of the ship.
Merlin wondered how Man had managed to stray so far from the majesty of the Almighty. Meanwhile, Philip was struggling with a natural skepticism, but Merlin's knowledge of history, and his telling of it, was strangely persuasive. Nevertheless, Philip was unnerved. Some of the very people Merlin was calling enemies of God were his friends. He decided to remain silent for now. Later, he would demand answers.
"With the rise in energy prices, the development of the
"Radical Islam did not believe in modernization, education, or materialism. This theology gave the Illuminati the cover they needed to keep the Arab Middle East backward. They used Radical Islam to attack industrialization and modernization with the lie that human progress was un-Islamic and a Western plot against the servants of Allah.
"The real goal was actually aimed at the brown-skinned
masses of the
"Another project was "Islam and the West," begun at Cambridge in 1977 with Muslim Brother and former Syrian prime minister Maarouf Dawalibi, in collaboration with the Club of Rome's Peccei and Britain's Lord Caradon, along with Dr. Alexander King's International Federation of Advanced Study.
"What exactly is the Club of Rome, anyway?" Philip interrupted. "I've heard of them, but I'm not altogether sure what they are or what they do."
"Well, officially, it was a non-governmental organization made up of scientists, economists, businessmen, and former heads of state who publicly espoused the belief that humanity was in control of its future and that all that was required to create a prosperous and peaceful world was careful planning by men of good will from all over the world. However, in truth, it was a subversive organization dedicated to giving birth to the New World Order via the birth pangs of global conflict. These wars would strip humanity of the civil rights and freedoms that they inherited from Christianity and indeed, place the blame on religion itself. At last, the people themselves would cry out in desperation for autocracy and an end to religious differentiation. The result, to be given to them upon request, was to be a one-world government and a one-world religion, fashioned in the image and likeness of the Club of Rome and those who controlled it. But, I'm getting ahead of myself.
"Islam and the West assembled a policy outline effectively defining Islam as a backwards religion in a struggle with science and technology. The Globalists of the Club of Rome were determined to promote only the repressive anti-Western minority elements of Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood was the key to selling this view to the world.
Brotherhood was founded by Hasan al-Banna as a religious secret society.
British Intelligence cultivated ties with the Brotherhood through agent Freya
Stark. These covert connections were used to keep track of the growing German
Philip had had enough. This was too incredible. "Are you trying to convince me that the West created its own worst enemy, Radical Islam? No way! That's just too hard to believe. It is way beyond belief!"
Merlin thought for a moment, rubbing his chin and hanging his head down to his chest. "OK!" Merlin eyes lit up as he thought of something that would convince anyone.
Merlin paused to reflect on this sad moment in history

Merlin was glad to see that Philip was beginning to understand who the enemy was.
"This explosion of violence throughout the
Philip was getting a good part of this, but there was so much detail. It would have helped had he enjoyed a better knowledge of 20th century history. Also, he didn't like appearing to be so dense! He had a lot of questions, but he feared the answers would only provoke more uncertainty so he chose to be silent.
"At first, Western support for Islam was provided openly and accepted by the leadership of the Islamic movements without reservation. Islam had a good image in the West up to this time. The Islamic movement was noted most for its anti-communist stance and there was little to suggest that, soon, conservative Islam would turn against the West.
"After the Six
Day War in 1967, the power of the Islamic movements greatly increased.
Islamic theology overtook secularism, and a more virulent form of Arab
nationalism emerged. The Arab community saw the West stand idle as
"Eventually, this led to the events of October 6, 1973 when
profound. Arab nations suddenly became the benefactors of a huge increase in oil revenues, from $3.01 a barrel in early 1973, to $11.65 a barrel in early 1974. Globally, they were now a powerful force.
"But while this seemed like a dramatic anti-West
posture, the rise in oil prices was actually something that had been planned
previously by the Anglo-American Establishment and mentioned at the Bilderberg
conference in May, 1973 in
"The what?" Philip couldn't stop himself. The question popped out too quickly.
"The Bilderberg group was very small, about 130 of the most powerful people in the world, and it was very secretive. Their meetings were closed, but most of the Bilderbergers were also members of the Club of Rome, and both groups shared the same Globalists ambitions.
"Anyhow, Kissinger was the point man in engineering the
Arab-Israeli conflict that created the excuse for the oil price hike. This in
turn helped to rescue
the Third World to Anglo-American banks. Eventually, this led to the takeover of their natural resources as a trade in-kind for some of the debt."
Merlin could see that Philip was having trouble following all of this, so he decided to offer a grand generalization.
"Look Philip, consider that all the wars of the last
hundred years have been for oil and to keep Third World Countries backward.
Also consider that often these plans came back to bite the people who planned
them. All you have to do is follow the money.
“Africa was attempting to break loose from World Bank control at the same time South America was electing people who wanted to break ties with the World Bank as well.
"While all this was happening the Big Three wanted to
keep oil prices high and stop the development of all alternative energy sources.
But high oil prices were weakening global currencies and pushing the world very
close to a worldwide economic crash. The United Nations failed. The European
Union was not working. World Government seemed far off, since only
"As in the 1700s when the Illuminati first got together
to protect themselves from governments, the global situation had come back to
the place where it had started.
"But the goal of this Satanic secret society had not changed over the centuries: they wanted control of the world. To do that they needed to have a One World Government controlled by themselves and, despite all their planning and all their secret meetings, it was getting out of reach. They needed a new and drastic strategy to regain control of the process and then ultimately, the world.
"The proper thing to do, the moral thing, would have
been to let the
"If Brazil and other Latin American Countries would
have gained control of their economies and used their resources to improve the
lives of the masses like Costa Rica and Panama did, they would have avoided
repetitive, destructive civil conflicts and instead contributed significantly
to global wealth and prosperity. If Western Governments would have helped
nascent democracies in Africa instead of turning a blind eye to them,
"But these things would not make the richest people in the world richer; they would take away their source of power: cheap labor and cheap natural resources. And besides, they did not want the world better off; they wanted to control it!
"Think! Why did they try so hard to create a one world SOCIALIST government by supporting Socialism worldwide for so long? Because in a Socialist system, the government controls all the natural resources and the production of goods and services. The Illuminati can control governments easily, but it is much more difficult to control millions, billions, of people. Now, of course, all the plans that they had formulated over the last 150 years had fallen apart. To regain control of the processes leading to a One World Government, they needed another war. Then, when the world was in the midst of total anarchy, they would come forth and offer the only workable solution: world government. At that point, once the people were introduced to the idea, it would not be a matter of imposing World Government; bone-weary of death and destruction, the people would demand it!”
Philip pondered all that Merlin was saying but it did not make sense. This war was not prearranged. There were too many things that seemed to just happen and no one could have organized it.
But to make matters even worse for them, the American oil shale fields of the mid-west were opened up to private companies. These were the largest oil reserves in the world and soon, nobody would be paying nine dollars a gallon for oil!
Eventually, a secret meeting of the most powerful Illuminati
was held and it was decided to quickly cut off all oil to
To do this they needed to put a man as President of America, who would stop oil production, stop fighting Islam and increase government spending to the point of bankruptcy. With heavy financing from non-American sources, they got their man. But he was so radically socialist, and pro-Muslim, he frightened Americans and they quickly got rid of him. In only two years he awakened Americans to the horrors of any kind of socialism.
Another big mistake was trying to unit Moslems and
socialists world wide! Moslems and left-wing socialists are never united on
Suddenly the Straits of Hormuz were blocked by sinking oil
tankers one on top of another.More ships were sunk in the straits of Oman and
Djibouti; the docks of the Panama Canal were bombed and the Suez Canal closed.
Suddenly, oil transportation routes were stopped almost all over the world,
even to Europe,
As a consequence, riots erupted in
Within days the
The real reason
Riots everywhere else quickly morphed into civil wars all over the world, with few exceptions. Oddly, out of all that chaos, there seemed to be an organized attack on the entire world. Even the Illuminati could not figure out who organized it. Merlin himself had suspicions, but no proof. This part of the history of the war Philip knew.
Philip and Merlin went back to the cabin to get out of the cold. A Knight brought them some coffee and cakes. Philip sipped on his coffee and listened intently to Merlin. He wondered who he was, but didn't ask. He knew he was a Priest, but how was he connected to The Holy Father? Why did he come for him? Who was that giant black man with the Red Cross? Philip picked up his pipe, and Merlin went on about the war.
"As you know war has gripped every country in the

"Yes! I was there! He has few friends now. A handful of Cardinals stay with him. Most deserted him. Some think we have no pope, but he lives indeed."
"What is the Pope like?"
"He is strong. He never gives up. He makes plans and then executes them."
Philip was more puzzled than ever. This Priest brings him a
letter from The Holy Father, a man he seems to know a lot about, but why? He
dresses like a poor beggar, and yet he was with The Pope! He is old, crippled,
and poor, but that well-dressed giant obeys and protects him like a king. It
was well beyond strange, but Philip asked no more questions. He again lifted

bishop, but he was a Cardinal. He was a

Simon suddenly appeared on the deck. He was wearing his white robe and with his right hand he gripped that frightening cannon. Respectfully, he asked, "Are you ready?"
Merlin looked at Philip and suggested, "I think you should change clothes."
Philip almost laughed. He was wearing blue denims, a blue hooded sweatshirt, and blue tennis shoes. In contrast, Merlin looked like a bum. He guessed that his attire was a little too casual for a visit to the Pope, but the dark brown, hooded robe that Merlin wore wasn’t any better. The ends of his long sleeves were frayed and the hem was all but gone. He had a rope for a belt, with a long black Rosary that was also made of rope and tucked under the belt. What a sight!
After Philip regained his composure, he replied teasingly, "I think I'll go as I am or I'll make you look bad. Besides, with all I see from here, I think it would be healthier to be dressed for speed than for image."
"As you wish," Merlin replied, shaking his head.
"Then let's go!" Simon insisted as he motioned to one of the hands standing by an electric panel. The hand pulled a lever and the chopper soon appeared. Simon opened the glass door. Philip helped Merlin up and climbed in behind him. Simon went around and mounted on his side. He started the blades swirling and then sat for a minute looking at the morning sky.
Soon, two solid black Apache AHH-64 helicopters, just like Simon's,
appeared along both sides of the oil tanker. Merlin did not even blink, but
they scared Philip almost to death. He jumped with a start and hit his head on
the roof of the cockpit. Simon smiled at the

The papal apartments were just gone, the first casualty of war. The museum had been looted, and whatever could not be carried out was laid waste. The chapel named after Pope Sixtus IV had been sacked. The work of Roselli, Botticelli, Ghirlandaio, Signorelli, and of course Michelangelo was mostly lost forever. The once spectacular, imposing ceiling had collapsed. Ominously, though, the figure of Christ on the back wall, sitting in Final Judgment of the world, seemed to radiate out of the confusion. The demons reaching up for the damned must have turned and smiled hideously as the sons of man devastated the artistry of their forefathers on their way to their well-deserved eternal reward. Significantly, the tombs of the popes had not been opened, and their sacred bones rested still in the sanctuary of St. Peter’s lower level. But everywhere else there was destruction, as if Satan himself could no longer be restrained by the hand of God. But Philip knew better than that. God had merely released the leash a little; the ancient serpent was merely in the process of strangling himself with the surplus line.
The two support choppers dropped to within a few feet of the ground and spun around very slowly. The few people in the square ran away as quickly as they could. The right chopper stopped moving for a moment and sat suspended in the air, pointing at the ruins to the entrance to the square. Suddenly, both machine guns spat fiery rounds through the entrance and down the long street as a warning, making sure they hit nobody. Finally, it settled down and stopped its blades, but kept its guns trained on the entrance. The second chopper landed near the steps of the Basilica.
Simon spun his bird around very slowly, looking very carefully all around. Finally, he lowered it to the ground between the other two, waited a minute while performing a final scan, and then shut off the engine.
"Wait here a minute," Simon said as he grabbed his M-60 and stepped down slowly from his seat. He walked around the chopper with a firm grip on the machine gun. Everything was quiet. He lowered his weapon and raised his right hand. One by one, over forty men stepped into the open square, Each had strange looking automatic weapons. They were specially made with movable spring loaded barrels and electronically shot. They could be changed from 9mm to 50 caliber and because of the spring barrels still hand held. Each stepped forward to within 40 feet of the chopper. They then stopped and formed a circle, saying nothing.
From the top steps of the great Basilica of St. Peter a man appeared dressed just like the rest of them, except that he had no gun. He walked quickly down the steps towards Simon. They hugged each other like old friends and talked for a few seconds. Simon looked at Philip and with an upward turned palm, pointed his hand at Philip.
Philip watched in wonder. Simon and the other man started towards the
chopper door. It was obvious that, whoever these men were, they went through a
lot of trouble to get Philip here, and get him here safely. But who were they?
They had kidnapped him and his family from
Simon opened the door, and Philip stepped down. The other man said nothing but kept staring at him. They went around and helped Merlin down. "Je m’appelle Pierre de Saint Clair, Abbe de l’Ordre," he informed Philip as he bowed before him.
"That's a fancy name." Philip thought, "What does it mean and what is the Order?" But he only replied, "Oh! You speak French?"
"Yes!" He bowed his head again and pointed towards St. Peter's dome. "Shall we go?"
Philip followed him up the long steps, carefully stepping around the fallen columns and pieces of statue. When they reached the top of the steps, Philip realized for the first time that the roof of The Greatest Roman Catholic Church on Earth was partially gone, except for the dome and the Altar. The Church was in the shape of a cross, with the dome and the Altar at the center. They were walking down the long marble floor of the nave where thousands of Cardinals once gathered for the councils, where hundreds of Popes and kings had walked, where thousands of saints had stood in awe of the majesty and the beauty. But now the roof was damaged, the walls were bare and scarred, the internal statues were damaged, and the Pieta was splattered with paint.
At last they reached the Altar. The four twisted gold pillars still supported Bernini’s canopy, and together with the Altar they sat beneath the great dome, barely held up by the remaining pillars and walls! St. Peter's tomb was still there, beneath the canopy, untouched. Steps led directly down to it, and Philip descended without asking permission. He knelt down on one knee and bowed his head in front of the tomb. After a moment of prayer, he rose and climbed back up the stairs, went around the three men to the main Altar, and climbed the steps to the top. He then knelt down on both knees before the Tabernacle and bowed down to the marble floor. He remained in that position praying for a few minutes, pleading for an end to this global madness and suffering, for an end to the persecution of the Church, an end to the millions and millions of deaths.
He made the sign of the cross and lifted his head from the floor, but remained on his knees. The sun shot rays of light all through the Altar and it bounced off the golden pillars like lasers. Philip's eyes had been closed, so it was difficult to focus at first, but as he strained them through the brightness, he became aware of a long white robe directly in front of him. He squinted and looked up. It was The Holy Father.
Pope Benedict stood right in front of Philip, only a few feet away. He wore a white robe with a wide white belt, a white Rosary, and a white cap on top of black curly hair. His skin was black and his eyes were sparkling and soft. In his left hand was a gold staff curved at the top like a shepherd's stick, and in his right hand was a large sword, golden from top to bottom with red and blue stones in the cross-shaped handle. The tip sat on the floor, and Benedict held the top forward and to one side.
Philip did not attempt to get up nor did he want to speak! He had never been in the presence of the Holy Father before, even though he had been to St. Peter's many times.
"You are Philip Von Habsburg?" Benedict questioned very softly.
"Yes," Philip answered softly, quickly realizing that he had addressed the Holy Father rather badly and then adding, "Your …. Your Holiness."
"I have longed to see you face to face. Yes, at last we meet as I knew we would one day. For many years the popes before me have waited for you."
"Your Holiness, I do not even know you, let alone know that you were looking for me." Philip was still kneeling, but now only on one knee.
"Bow your head for my blessing." With the help of Simon, the black shinned Pope raised the large sword and laid it on Philip's right shoulder.
"By the power vested
in me from God through Peter and all his successors throughout the centuries, I
proclaim you King of
Philip had started to rise to protest, but the sword was heavy. When the blessing was concluded, Simon helped remove the sword from his shoulder, and Philip stood. It was then he realized how tall the Holy Father was in stature, tall and thin.
"Most Holy and Sweet Father, I don't know what all this means, but I am just a husband and father. I want nothing more of this world than to be left with my family in peace. My grandfather was king, but I do not have his qualities, nor his ambitions. He was a saint of a man, as was my father, but I…my Lord, I have been…a great sinner."
"My poor sweet friend, I have not picked you. God selected you from the beginning of time, just as He selected Moses, and not because Moses deserved it! Quite the contrary, Moses was a coward and wanted no part in God's plans. But he obeyed, as will you."
Philip ran his hand through his hair and shook his head from side to
side. "No! No! No! How can I be king of
"Philip, Philip, Philip! Oh man of little faith! We are taught by the words of the Gospel that in this Church and in its power there are two swords, a spiritual and a temporal one. For when the Apostles said, 'Behold, here are two swords, the Lord did not reply that it was too many, but enough! He who denies that the temporal sword is in the power of Peter, has wrongly understood the Word of the Lord when He says: 'Put up again thy sword into its place.' Therefore, both are in the power of the Church: the one, indeed, to be wielded BY the Church, and the other FOR the Church. The former rests in the hand of the priest, the latter is wielded by the hand of kings and knights at the behest of the priest. For it is necessary that one sword should be under another, and that the temporal authority should be subjected to the spiritual, for the Apostle says, 'There is no power but from God and those powers that are, are ordained of God."
Philip dropped to his knees again and looked up at the Holy Father with bewilderment in his eyes, "Be it done unto me according to your will, Your Holiness, but I have no idea what to do."
"Go with Father Merlin and he will show you," replied Benedict, turning towards Pierre de Saint Clair and taking a leather folder from him.
"This is my official de fide declaration that you are now King of
France, Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire, and King of
Philip took the binder in both hands and looked down at it with glassy eyes. He turned towards Simon. The Giant handed him a beautiful emerald studded, golden crown. Benedict placed it on Philip's head.
"This is the crown of St. Steven. It has been preserved these many
years for this moment. May the blessings of St. Steven go with you. And this is
the sword of Joseph of Arimethea. May it help you defeat all the enemies of

"I will be safe here in
Philip walked down the steps of the altar and out the violated side wall of the dome without turning back. Twelve men in white robes with red crosses followed behind him, their strange looking guns at the ready.
Outside, Philip stood in disbelief. Blue denim slacks, blue sweatshirt, tennis shoes, a golden crown, a golden sword, and real tears made of him a silly spectacle. What now for this reluctant 40 year-old king?
The Blood Line
Simon set down on the southern shores of
Merlin, with assistance, and Philip disembarked. The Giant reached into the back seats and removed the crown and sword. With a new sense of caution, imbued by the somber Papal coronation, Philip looked around. On the east hill next to one of the choppers was an octagon shaped castle, very old but reasonably well preserved. In the valley between the two hills was a small Church and rectory, also very old but still functional. Behind the Church sat a large lake. A quantity of men (Philip could not tell how many from that distance) were working on a large water pump and seemed to be trying to drain the entire lake with a 12 inch hose. Philip disregarded the workers and followed Merlin towards the rectory.
Merlin opened the door and entered, followed by Philip and Simon. No one was inside, but food and wine had been provided and arranged on the table. Philip sat down and leaned back in the chair. He was wary, totally confused and exhausted. Simon gazed out the window and then stood by the door, sword at his side. He had set the crown on the table.
"You are very quiet," Merlin offered to the newly crowned King Philip, as he sat at the table.
Philip just looked at him with puzzled eyes and said nothing.
"I'm sure you have a lot of questions, but you haven’t
spoken a word since we left
Philip stared at the monk for a long time. Calmly and quietly he said, "I've been thinking and I think you are all crazy, or at least you take me for being crazy. Strange men wearing insipid red crosses kidnap me and my family; a crazy old monk describes a centuries-old conspiracy that nobody else in power seems to have figured out before him and then he escorts me into the presence of the “Holy Father”, who is likely some nice fellow impersonating the pope; finally, this ersatz pope tells me that I’m the new Holy Roman Emperor. I have behaved quite foolishly, and quite naively. For a while, I actually believed all this nonsense! Until now, I have been quite submissive, but still I have not determined what you are really up to. I have no money, so it's not that. My family is quite poor and could never pay a ransom. I am not politically valuable to anyone, so it cannot be that. I know nobody of significance, so I cannot have information you might want. So, Mr. Merlin, or Father Merlin, or whatever your real name is, what is this elaborate farce all about and what do you really want of me and my family?” Philip subconsciously rubbed three fingers up and down his large nose as he glared at the old man.
"Oh, man of little faith." Father Merlin said as he shook his head back
and forth while pacing the floor. Then standing tall and trying hard to be
slightly angry he said, "You have no idea who you are, do you? You see the world is falling apart around
you, but all you want is a nice quiet family life! You pray that God will end
the madness, while you indolently sun yourself on the shores of
Eyes flashing in anger at last, Philip shouted despairingly, "What can I do? The world has gone crazy. I'm only one person. I can write, but there are no newspapers, no publishers. I am not a fighter. I couldn't defeat a small boy in battle!"
Catching himself, Philip lowered his voice and looked down at the floor. "I've believed in peace my whole life. Peace? What a stupid word nowadays. There is no peace anywhere in the world." Philip looked up at Simon. "Now, that big monster over there, he could fight. Why are you not looking to him for whatever you need?" Philip waved an accusing hand at Simon, who smiled at the suggestion.
"Finally!" Merlin silently exulted. Ignoring Philip's words but encouraged by his passion, Merlin slowly rose from his chair. He placed both hands over his mouth and peered through his straining eyes with loving affection at Philip. With his hands still on his mouth, he drifted over to the window. He fixed his gaze skyward in several moments of obvious prayer, then raised his hands over his head.
"Now! Now is the time, my Lord!" The tone of his voice, and its sudden rendering of the silence, gave Philip a start. With still rising voice, Merlin continued his eager supplication. "Oh Lord, I have held these mysteries of yours for so long, so long. But now is the time! Thousands before me have died to keep these secrets, so that this moment could be. Now I am entrusted to deliver. Lord, make me worthy. Spirit of Truth, guide my words."
Merlin tugged at his long beard, made the sign of the cross, and turned around to look squarely at Philip. The crown sat in front of him on the table. The red rubies sparkled from the light coming through the window. The gold cross on top obscured Philip's nose, separating his eyes. Simon was drawn to Merlin's side, for he too was waiting to hear the mysteries that he had guarded in ignorance all these years. He would be the first of his Order to hear the mystery that had been protected for two thousand years.
Merlin anxiously paced the room, still hunched over, but suddenly energized. "Philip, what you are about to hear has been one of the best kept secrets in the history of The Church. The first Apostles told each other, but never wrote it down in a way that the average Christian could understand, because it had to remain a mystery. No! It had to remain THE mystery."
"This mystery has three parts: the first part I will explain to you now, the second part you will discover for yourself very soon, and the third part you must receive from the Holy Spirit Himself"
"In the Bible, long genealogical lists continually appear, especially in Genesis, Numbers, 1st Book of Chronicles, Nehemiah, and Ezra, and, of course, in the New Testament in Matthew 1:17 and Luke 2:23. The importance attached to blood relationships has been argued back and forth by experts for years, especially the differences between Matthew and Luke.
"Now, Matthew begins his Gospel with the book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the son of Abraham. Even though he calls this the genealogy of Jesus Christ, he ends the chapter with proof that Joseph's blood was not in Christ in Matthew 1:18. 'Now the generation of Christ was in THIS WISE. When as His mother Mary was espoused to Joseph before they came together she was found with child, of the Holy Ghost.' So you see, Matthew called it the genealogy of Jesus and then proved that it was not. However, one thing is not commonly known. Joseph's grandfather, Mathan, and Mary's great grandfather, Levi, both had the same wife. Mathan had two sons, Jacob and Joses. Jacob was the father of Joseph. When Mathan died, his widow married as her second husband Levi, (descended from David through Nathan) and by him had Matthat, the father of Heli, (also known as Joachim) the father of Mary, the Mother of God. So you see, Mary was of the same blood as Joseph because of the common wife of Levi and Mathan. And so, Matthew was not giving an untrue genealogy about the origin of Christ.
"However, in Luke 3:23 we see a different genealogy. In fact, Luke is very careful to let the reader know that the genealogy of Matthew was not the genealogy of Christ. He himself was not giving the genealogy of Joseph but that of Mary, since Heli, also called Joachim, was the father of Mary. So you can see that Luke and Matthew both deliberately confused the reader, without saying an untruth, since Joseph was considered the father of Christ, even if not by blood. And, in fact, the blood of his line, if not himself, was in Christ through Mathan.
"Now comes the question that needs to be asked, for too often readers of the Bible do not ask the right questions. Why are both genealogies important?
“WHY WAS THE GENEALOGY OF JOSEPH IMPORTANT, SINCE HE DID NOT PRODUCE ANY CHILDREN?"
With that question, Merlin stopped, looked first at Philip and then at Simon. They were in rapt attention. Simon was clutching the cross of the sword with both hands and Philip was leaning forward with his arms folded on the table.
"Does all this have something to do with what's happening now?" Philip asked. "How can it possibly have anything to do with the billion deaths over the past two years?"
"Bear with me. I have rehearsed telling you this for fifty years, even before you were born." Merlin walked over to the window and watched the men working on the pump. An twelve-inch column of water belched out of the hose and ran down towards the sea, but the lake seemed hardly dented. It would be a long time yet. Without turning around, Merlin continued.
"For thousands of years before Christ, it was commonly known that the Savior, the Christ, would come from the first-born sons of Abraham. And so it was. Sometimes being first born was not a genetic thing, but rather something earned, as in the case of Adam, who replaced Cain and Abel with Seth, and so only Seth appears as important to genealogy. This is also true in the case of David, whose first born turned against him. But in general what is called first born produced David and then Christ. However, from David on, another genealogy appears --- that of SOLOMON. Why Solomon?
"Solomon was not a first born, Natham was. In fact,
Solomon was the second son of David's adultery with Bathsheba. Why then did
David make him king instead of Natham? Why is Solomon's genealogy suddenly
important, if it does not produce Christ? The answer comes at the death of both
David and Solomon. When David was dying, he said to Solomon in 3 Kings 2:4,
'There shall not be taken away from thee a man on the throne of
"From that day on, every son of Solomon was King of Jerusalem, and every first-born son of Natham was to eventually produce Christ, who produced The Church.
"These two are the two swords mentioned by The Holy Father. Natham, who was also called a prophet, helped Solomon become king, so that Solomon and all his successors could protect the blood line of Natham to Christ and never let it die out. That is why God said, 'So that My Name might always be there. And so it was. Though not always in the eyes of men, nevertheless always in the eyes of God, Solomon and his children will always be KING OF JERUSALEM. Although Solomon, himself, was not a good man at the end of his life, he continued to protect the people of the Church (though not its faith).
"They still are charged with protecting His Church and
His Blood. At first it was the blood line, now it is the blood of Christ in the
"Joseph, because he was of Solomon's blood, was charged
with protecting the FIRST CHURCH OF CHRIST, THE HOLY FAMILY. But Joseph had an
older brother named Zodac. Zodac was converted at
"At that moment, the Holy Spirit came upon Zodac. He dropped his sword, ran through the crowds towards Christ. As he ran, he grabbed a veil off the head of one of the holy women, and when he reached Christ, he wrapped it around Christ's waist. Christ spoke to Zodac's mind. 'You shall now take over where Joseph left off. You shall protect My Church.'
"After Christ's death and burial, Joseph of Armethia,
"Zodac formed a small army of knights to protect the
relics of Christ and the holy women. After his death, his son became the King
of Jerusalem, and the knights followed his every command. As the Church spread
"King Arthur and his knights of the round table was one of these appointed kings, though that was not his real name. They had no country, no real kingship over people, no land other than the castles they built themselves. They had only one job, to protect the Church. The real king of the blood of Solomon and Joseph became known as the 'FISHER KING', because he was the protector of the fisherman, Peter, and the protector of the Church.
"Percival, Gawain, Lancelot, and Robin Hood: these were all coded stories of the knights who served the King of Jerusalem, the Fisher King, the Protector of the Church, the spirit of Joseph, and that is the sanctity of Joseph. Even their names are coded so that they remain secrets except to those who know the codes. This is therefore a true history, but in code! Have you ever heard of a book called 'THE TRUE STORY OF THE HOLY GRAIL?'
Philip thought for a moment. "Yes! I have heard of it but never read it."
"Well!" said Merlin, "Although it calls itself a true story, it is obvious in the first chapter that it is not a true story. Instead of numbered chapters, it says 'BLOOD LINE ONE, TWO, ETC.' It is in this book that you hear about Merlin, the Mystic. But in truth there never was any person called Merlin. His name and mine are secret codes used to teach the Order the mysteries without allowing others to know them. All those who have been called 'Merlin' are just the keepers of the secrets, and the Fisher King is just a code for the protector of the Fisherman, the Pope.
"One of these Fisher Kings was Godfroi de Bouillon, who

Merlin pointed at Simon and his robe with the Eight Pointed Cross. Philip swung around in his chair and looked up at Simon. "So that is why you wear that white stole and the Cross?"
"It's a scapular, not a stole; the Scapular of Joseph." Simon corrected.
Philip turned back to Merlin with a big question, the answer to which he already knew. "What does that have to do with me?" He closed his eyes as he waited for the answer, hoping he was wrong.
"Yes! You know. You are the Fisher King. You are the
King of Jerusalem. You are Emperor of the
Philip sat down silently with his eyes shut. He thought
about his father. He realized that his father knew. Otto von Habsburg had
signed his name many times with the title, 'King of Jerusalem'. Philip had
thought he was just being pert because of his grandfather. But Philip's
grandfather knew also. Charles von Habsburg was the earthly King of Austria,
but also claimed the title of Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire and King of
"What about these Templars? I thought they were dismantled and condemned by the Pope back in the Fourteenth Century for being Masons or something like that?"
"Yes and no! It is a popular misconception. King Philip had read prophesies about the GREAT MONARCH OF THE FUTURE, who would be of the blood of Joseph. It was given to him by the false mystic, Ramon Lull. King Philip knew that he was of that same bloodline, and because of his sinful pride, decided that it must be he about whom the prophesy spoke. He went to the Templar Knights and offered to give up his crown and kingdom to become one of the knights. They turned him down. This made him so angry that he devised false charges against them, and ordered them all arrested on the night of October 13, 1303.
"You must understand that the Knights were the strongest army in the world at that time. No king could have defeated them in battle; however, the knights took an oath to protect the Church, the Pope, and the bloodline. They could not fight against a man who had the blood of Joseph.
"When Philip came to arrest them, they went without
fighting because they could not fight against him, and they thought that the
Church would come to their aid. So on October 13, 1303, they were all put into
irons. Do you recognize that date? It is the same date as the Miracle of the

Although it was never proven that the real Templars performed any demonic acts, the Masonic order of the Templars did so, and continued to do so right up to this very day.

Merlin looked out at the lake that was being drained by the
large pump. "Many! You will see in time, for you are now the head of the
Templar Knights, just as the Fisher King was. You will see the true cross upon
which hung our dear Savior, as well as many other things. You will see how we

"When Natham said. 'I will preserve the offspring of your body and make his sovereignty secure.' (2 Kings 7:12), Natham was speaking of Philip von Habsburg. In Psalm 90 (91) God is speaking of you, Philip. You shall read it often."

The CIA used this strategy when they spread the rumors of Flying Saucers to hide the building of secret aircraft. The strategy works well, so we do the same." That was as far as Merlin was willing to go with this.
"Why me? I don't want to be a king? I am not a leader. When I was young, people made fun of me because of my grandfather, but I was never brave enough to defend him. A king should be holy, and brave. I am neither."
"Yes, I know. We have been watching you all these years. We, too, thought that it could not be you. But God is the architect of history, and He chooses whomsoever He wants. This is not something that can be earned or bought by deeds. This was ordained by God before the earth was created, and neither you nor I can change that." Merlin looked up at the giant.
"And now, Simon, if you will help me, we can prepare

Merlin awoke at five a.m., dressed quickly, and went downstairs to prepare Mass for Philip and Simon. When he arrived, he found Philip staring through the window at the lake, deep in thought. One night of pumping furiously, and the lake was almost empty.
"What are you doing up so early? You will need all the sleep you can get to preserve your strength. Today is going to be the biggest day of your life."
"How do you expect me to sleep after what I heard last night? I tossed and turned for a couple of hours and then just gave up. I've been watching those men out there. They’ve been pumping that lake all night long. I've also noticed that these hills are filled with armed people. I suspect they’re not just company for those who came in the two Choppers."
Merlin prepared the table for Mass as he spoke. "Yes! I know! They are always here. They pretend to be farmers or fishermen in the area, but they are always here. They have been protecting that lake for seven hundred years." Merlin left the room to fetch Simon.
To Philip, that sounded odd. Why would anyone have to protect a lake? But he remembered now. The world he awoke to today was forever different from the one he had become accustomed to. Yesterday had changed everything. His awareness of his God-given mission in life was beginning to take shape. Merlin had said such staggering things to him. And the pope? His doubts about the authenticity of that ceremony had evaporated. Still his eyes were fixed on the lake. He reasoned, obviously, that there had to be something IN the lake that was being protected, not the lake itself. But what could be of such compelling import that generations of men, in the guise of farmers and townsfolk, would devote their entire lives protecting it? He had a powerful sense that he was soon to find out!
After Mass, they all enjoyed a hearty breakfast, which Merlin prepared himself. There were four men in the front of the building wearing Knight robes, OSV machine guns at the ready. These four never came inside. Philip was still in casual clothes, this time tennis shoes and a heavy pull-over sweater. During breakfast, Simon asked Merlin many questions about the conversation the night before. Merlin answered them all very patiently. Philip just listened. After eating, Philip silently left the table to sit in a wooden rocking chair. In a moment, he was fast asleep.
Simon laughed loudly with admiration. "So! This is the Great Monarch!" He looked down at the little man sleeping in the chair. "So this is what I was born to protect and to follow unto death! God has either strange ways or a good sense of humor."
The rest of the morning passed quietly. Simon resumed his post, watching over Philip, while Merlin sat pensively. At 12:00 noon, Philip was still sleeping when a quiet but firm knock was heard on the front door. Simon peered out the window, retrieved his modified M-60, and opened the door. A serious looking Knight stepped briskly inside, walked over to the rocking chair, and looked down at the sleeping King. Without averting his gaze, he said to Merlin, simply, "It's ready."
"You wait here. I'll check," Merlin ordered Simon. As Philip slept on, Simon brewed him some coffee.
Within fifteen minutes, Merlin was back. "It's ready."
"Have the hills been checked?"
"Yes! And as soon as we are seen leaving the rectory, the escort choppers will lift off and do a quick reconnaissance of the surroundings. We will need tight security for the rest of the day, no matter the cost." Merlin looked at Philip and shook his head. "I will never understand the mind of God." He shook Philip. "Get up, my King, the world awaits."
Simon brought him the coffee as Philip rubbed his eyes. "Well, it couldn’t have been a bad dream if you two are still here!" Philip was only teasing. He knew that today was to be the most important day of his life, even greater than yesterday. He gratefully drank the coffee without rising from the rocking chair. "I had a strange dream. There was an angel standing on the Earth and making an oath to God. It was very odd."
"When you are ready, we must go." Clearly, Merlin was getting nervous again. He had resumed his pacing back and forth, going nowhere in a very great hurry!
At last, Philip announced, "All right! I'm ready." His hair was disheveled, he hadn't shaven, and his clothes looked like he had slept in them, which of course he had. But he was ready. Merlin shook his head in disbelief at the spectacle before him and led the intrepid trio out the door. Outside were eight Knights wearing robes and clutching modified AK-47s.
When Philip stepped out, all the knights bowed. This caught Philip by surprise, and he almost stumbled back into the rectory. Running his hand along his chin, he felt his whiskers, and then ran the same hand through his hair. The bowing Knights had strengthened his growing awareness that he was somehow, unbelievably, special. He grabbed Merlin by the sleeve of his habit. "I think I should go back in and clean up a bit." Merlin eagerly agreed.
In short order, Philip reappeared decked out in a new set of clothes and looking much better. He even wore a suede coat with a fur collar. The Knights bowed again, but this time, Philip was expecting it. He followed Merlin to the back of the rectory and then they walked towards the lake. Simon and the other Knights followed behind closely. No one spoke a word.
When they arrived at the lake shore, Philip could see that they had built a sort of bridge across the drained lake. It extended to the center of the lake where there sat a pile of large rocks that had been submerged for so many centuries. Two men stood on each side of the bridge at the center of the lake.
"Follow me." Merlin walked quickly out to the center of the lake with Philip close behind. Simon followed the new king, but the other men spread out around the lake.
In the center of the lake, amidst the pile of rocks, there was an opening with a set of solid rock stairs descending about fifteen feet. Merlin made his way over the rocks and slowly stepped down the stairs. Philip and Simon followed. Naturally, everything was wet. At the bottom of the steps was a flat passage about a hundred feet long. At its end was another staircase. Philip followed Merlin down the passage and up the other stairs. At the top of these stairs there was a short landing and then more stairs going down again. Somebody had gone to considerable trouble to hide whatever Philip was about to find! At the bottom of these stairs, everything was dry. Candles had already been placed along the way. Again, there was a long passageway, this one on a slight incline. Philip figured that they were now under the mountain and out of the lake.
Awaiting them at the end of this passage was a large copper door with beautiful inlays of sculpted grapes, angels, pomegranate trees, and Templar Knights. In its center was carved a crown like the one on the Table at the rectory. Merlin reached into his brown robe and pulled out a large key. When Merlin was young he had dived many times into the lake and visited the room he was about to go into. But it was now 50 years since he had been there and despite his best efforts his enfeebled hands couldn't turn the key. A quick glance from the priest and Simon quickly reached forward, worked the lock, and pushed the door open.
Inside was a flat space about ten feet square with another door on the other side. "Be very careful in here. Brusque movement will cause the ceiling to collapse, and there are five hundred feet of rock above us."
Merlin handed another key to Simon. He turned it very slowly. With this door now unlocked but unopened, he returned and closed the other door, then carefully locked and tested it. He rejoined Merlin and Philip and pulled open the other door very slowly, all the while looking very carefully at the ceiling. Once open, he stepped aside to let Merlin and Philip pass.
Merlin lit three candles and passed them around. They walked up a short flight of stairs and down to another door. This door didn't look like it was made of copper. It looked like gold. Philip reached out and touched the door. It was eight feet tall and six feet wide, beautifully carved with the same images as the first door. "Yes! It's gold." Merlin offered. "It’s solid gold and three inches thick. Even Simon would not be able to push it open if it was not so well balanced on those hinges."
Merlin made the sign of the cross, said a short prayer, and took out a gold triangle from his pocket. He placed the triangle into a slot on the door. It fell through and came back out a slot at the bottom. "OK! Simon, it's time to see how strong you really are."
Simon leaned against the door and pushed it open a couple of feet. He stepped part way through the narrow opening, put his back to the door frame and then pushed it wide open. Merlin picked up the candle and walked in. He proceeded down four steps as the candlelight filled the room. Philip stepped into the room closely behind.
Philip stood in awe. The light from the one candle filled the room with dazzling light. It was the size of a basketball arena. The floor was at least one hundred feet long and seventy feet wide. The ceiling was round and vaulted, about seventy feet high at the center with eight pillars down two sides. There were barred, eight inch holes on the right and left sides of the room for ventilation.
What lit the room up from Merlin's single candle was the gold, piles and piles of gold everywhere. The entire floor was filled with gold coins, gold vessels, gold candlesticks, gold bowls, gold lamps, gold censers, palm trees of gold, basins, pillars, cherubim angels, altars, all of gold and inlaid with costly stones. In some places, the gold was piled twenty feet high. On both sides of the large room were two cherubim angels fifteen feet tall with wings fifteen feet long from tip to tip. Chains and cords of solid gold hung from the walls.
At the end of the room, about 100 feet from Philip, sat a large altar of solid gold, itself inlaid with beautiful stones. On top of the altar was a leather bound box about two feet long and two feet tall with no markings. Jewish candle holders rested on both sides but they held no candles. Instead, on either side of the leather box, there was a single candle holder with a candle that Merlin lit.
Philip stepped down the four steps as Simon went around the room lighting candles in the walls. Merlin stood looking at Philip for his reaction to the unimaginable wealth in the room. Philip kept turning around and around. He had never been impressed with wealth, but this was overwhelming. He had never imagined that so much gold and so many jewels could be in one place. It seemed as if all the gold in the world was in this one room.
One thing was out of place, a plain leather box on the large gold table. The mere fact that it stood out caused Philip to come back to it over and over after looking over the entire room. The two 15 foot angels seemed to be looking at the plain leather box. Pointing: “What is that?”
Merlin went up the box. He pulled the top off and then moved the two doors on the sides open which in turn opened the sides and laid them down behind. In the box was a chalice. It was a brown glass cup about 6 inches tall held in place by webbing of gold grapes and vines on the bottom third of the cup. It had a gold base, stand and handles also decorated in grapes and vines. The glass cup was half full of something black and solid. “This is the Holy Grail, the cup of the Last Supper.”
“The Holy Grail! Then there is a real Holy Grail?”
“Yes! This is the most famous relic in the history of the world and as you study it let me tell you its history because this will become part of your life from now on.
"The Grail, before Moses set it in gold, was just the brown diamond cup that you see. It was first given to Enoch by Adam in a short wine and bread ceremony. Adam used it in the Garden of Eden to eat and drink from the Tree of Life.”
Merlin was talking quietly and slowly so that Philip could follow and contemplate what he was saying.
“When they left the Garden of Eden, they took the cup
with them. It passed down to Enoch.
Enoch left it with Methuselah before he ascended to
Philip did not take his eyes off the Chalice. Merlin was not sure if he was even listening. He decided to go on anyway.
"When the safety of the
"But the Grail was not in the
"Christ knew the Holy Grail was in the wall of the upper room. He removed it and used it to change wine into His Precious Blood. Later, Joseph of Arimethia used it to remove the Blood that fell down from the cross into the rock crevices. What you see in the Chalice is the real Blood of Christ. That is why it is called grail. Grail means blood, holy blood." Merlin stopped and stepped backwards quietly.
Now it was up to Philip. Everything depended on this moment. All these elaborate preparations depended on this man. All Merlin could do now was wait. He looked over at Simon. Simon did not move, and though his eyes were wet from the tears he had shed, he could not take them off of the Grail.
Philip finally turned away from the Grail, looked over at Merlin, and with tears streaming down his face he asked, "How can I serve the Blood of Christ?"
The weight of centuries seemed to flee Merlin in an instant. As the words left Philip’s mouth, Merlin dropped down next to the kneeling Philip and hugged him from the side with both arms. He placed his head on Philip's shoulder with a mixture of joy and relief.
After a time, Merlin rose and held out a hand to Philip. Philip also rose, but he did not take his eyes off the Chalice. Merlin turned towards the Holy Grail, removed the flat cap, pulled down a veil, placed it over his hands, and picked up the Holy Grail by the two large handles. He turned around and faced Philip and lifted the Chalice up above his head.
"This is the Blood of Christ, the Blood of the New and Eternal Covenant. Through Him, with Him, in Him, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, all glory and honor is yours, almighty Father, for ever and ever, Amen."
Merlin lowered the Chalice, looked at Philip, "Take and drink, this is my blood." He handed the Holy Grail to Philip. Philip reached out hesitantly, put his hands under the veil, so as not to actually touch the Grail, and grabbed both handles with great care, so as not to drop it. He looked down into the cup, a cup that had been in the hands of Adam and Christ. The blood that lay inside was coagulated. It was hard and black. But as Philip looked down into the cup, the blood softened and liquefied, turning red. Philip cringed at the thought of drinking blood, but he was determined to do it because it was Christ’s blood and Christ commanded it (John 6). Slowly Philip raised it to his lips, tipped the Grail and drank a small amount of Christ’s Blood.
To his surprise the blood tasted like fine wine. He lowered the Chalice and stared into the cup. The liquid solidified again and became hard. As he handed the Grail to Merlin, a great change had come over him. His tears were gone. His face had changed too. He no longer showed the doubt or fear that he had before. He face was now chiseled with daring determination.
"My Lord, it is time." Merlin shouted. "Simon, carry the Chalice. It is time to go." Merlin placed the Chalice back into the leather box, restoring the lid.
Simon slung his weapon over his shoulder and picked up the box. Merlin led the way, Simon following and Philip walking behind. They closed the doors carefully as they left this holy sanctuary.
The Angel of Apocalypse
Merlin stepped outside the cave and pivoted to the left of a mound of rocks to make room for Simon. Instantly, Simon emerged and stood on top of the pile of rocks in the center of the lake, holding the leather Box.
The men at the foot of the bridge saw him first and knelt down on one knee. Simon stood tall with his legs spread apart and raised the Box over his head as Philip ascended the stairs. All around the lake on the hills, around the rectory, on the top of the octagon castle, were armed men, and all dropped to one knee at the sight of the Box. They all knew what was inside and they all knew what had just happened.
Philip wasted no time in walking around Simon and crossing the bridge. Simon and Merlin followed. The soldiers swarmed from their perches towards the rectory. They no longer felt a need to guard the hills. They came to meet both their King and their Lord in the Blood of the Holy Grail. But Philip did not stop. With a determined gaze, he walked past them all and strode to the front door of the rectory. He held the door for Simon, who carried the Grail inside and then placed it next to the crown of St. Steven. Beside the table was a middle-aged Knight with his white scapular and a cross. In his hands was another scapular.
"This sign of the Army of God belonged to the first Templar, Godfroi de Bouillon. No one has worn it since he. Now, it is yours. You are now King of Jerusalem and our King."
Philip held the white and red cloth in his hands for a moment, kissed it, and then placed it over his head, letting it fall simultaneously across his chest and back. This was a genuine Templar robe, with a belled red cross superimposed over a white background on both front and back, running the length of the garment. He turned towards the Holy Grail and knelt down on both knees to pray. When he rose, he turned again, this time towards the sword leaning against the wall.
Philip grabbed the sword of Joseph of Arimathea with both hands and left the building. Outside he saw Merlin, still limping towards the rectory as fast as he could. Philip bowed towards him with all the respect of a son to a father. Then he lifted the sword over his shoulder and walked quickly towards the sea.
Philip walked down towards
Suddenly, an anguished cry erupted from Philip’s soul.
"How long, O Lord (Holy and true), will You refrain from judging? How long will you refrain from avenging our blood on those who dwell on the earth?"
(Apocalypse 6: 10)
As his voice savagely pierced the soft silence that belied the chaos of the world, Philip desperately thrust both hands towards heaven.
"My voice, Lord,
echoes the prayer of the Saints in heaven. My voice, Lord, has incessantly
dispatched this prayer to your Kingdom for lo these last three years. Through
You, it is the prayer bequeathed to us by
"How long, O my Lord, must innocent children die from hunger or be pierced by the sword? How long, O Lord, will you allow infidels to crush our poor Christian brothers? My God, grant that I may be thy servant; permit these to be the hands that arrest the march of Satan. Our Holy Father has said there are two swords, and he ordained that I be that smaller sword, so that with your help, I could come to the aid of the Church. This besotted world, drunk on the blood of innocence, discordantly sings the requiem for Your Roman Catholic Church. But I, and these loyal servants awaiting your command, know that it lives still. When the word goes forth that the pope lives, your reinvigorated followers will emerge from their hideouts by the millions and place their lives in your service.
"Teach me how to serve you, Lord, and I will not shrink from your will. But I pray you, tarry not, and teach me now. Lord, let me be the instrument that fulfills the prayer you offered so long ago: may Thy kingdom come, on earth as it is in Heaven."
His eyes fixed on the heavens, Philip perceived a subtle reshaping of the clouds. They seemed to be forming into an image of the Virgin Mary, her hand raised as if blessing him. At that exact moment, a great pain shot through his body from the back of his right knee, as if someone had suddenly placed an iron grip around it.
After his long prayer, Philip began to rise, but he quickly faltered, almost falling to the sand. His right leg seemed to have lost its strength. He tried again, and with considerable effort, made it to his feet. Immediately, he placed his right foot into the sea, leaving his left on the dry ground. Defiantly, his voice thundering, he raised his right fist up to the heavens and cried out:
"I swear by Him who lives for ever and ever,
THERE SHALL BE DELAY NO LONGER to avenge the blood of the saints. By the power
of God, and the prayers of His Mother, The Heavenly
energized, and filled with the exhilaration of a desperate battle at last
joined, every Knight, upon hearing Philip’s fearsome oath, shouted in unison,
"Hail, King of Jerusalem! Hail, King of
Merlin watched and listened from the top of the hill. Quietly, he said to Simon, "HE IS THE SEVENTH ANGEL OF APOCALYPSE, and the little open scroll is the mystery of his mission in Christ."
"What angel," asked Simon?
In response, Merlin simply recited scripture. "And the angel, whom I saw standing upon the sea and upon the earth, lifted up his hand to heaven, and he swore by Him that liveth for ever and ever… that time shall be no longer. But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound the trumpet, the mystery of God shall be finished, as He hath declared by His servants, the prophets. ----- Apocalypse 10:5-7"
Every man present had heard Philip’s cry, and every man knew he had accepted the challenge to go to war. Philip stepped out of the sea, pulled the sword out of the sand, and with a look of challenge and triumph, surveyed his army. With surprising strength, he lifted his sword over his head with one hand and shouted up at his Knights, "There shall be no more delay." In a joyful, rising crescendo, the Knights repeated the words over and over.
Still supernaturally afflicted, Philip limped up the cliffs with determination, disregarding the pain. His Knights followed in a joyful procession, not like an army reluctantly heading to the front, but more like a citizen's march celebrating a great day; not with precision like an army, but with determination and joy.
Merlin waited at the door as Philip approached.
"Now you know the last secret, for God has revealed it to you. Not from me, for it was not to be so, but from the Holy Spirit of God you have learned it. It is like a baptism or an ordination. It is a transformation from Philip, the man, to Philip, the instrument of God."
They went inside, and Philip stood before the Holy Grail, still covered by the leather box. Even while he was still praying, Merlin found a need to speak. "My King, there is one thing more you must know."
Philip turned around, sword in hand, and encouragingly, softly said, "Go on!"
Merlin sat down and
looked up at Philip, "The Holy Scriptures tell of a 'SMALL OPEN BOOK' that
"Are you speaking of the book in Apocalypse that John was told to eat?"
"Yes! That is the second great mystery of the Bible."
"Yes! The first mystery was the Messianic Secret. Christ commanded silence for a time regarding the fact that He was God. Even the Prophets of the Old Testament did not reveal the secret."
"And the small book that John ate is the second Mystery?"
"Yes!" Merlin sat down at the table and placed the palm of his hand against the leather box.
Philip started to sit in the rocking chair, but remembered that he was in the same room with the Redeeming Blood of Christ and remained standing.
"The book is a book of history. It is open since God knows all of history and has revealed it to his prophets already. It is small since it is only a small portion of history. You have been chosen by God - just as He chose Moses, David, and Solomon - to be the leader of this small portion of history. You have been asked, and you accepted when you said of the Holy Grail, 'How shall I serve?' You shall be the instrument by which God unfolds His plan of Victory, the final Victory of the Church."
"The book, Father, was sweet as honey in his mouth and bitter in his stomach. Why was it bitter?"
"I will tell you why at the proper time. But first it is for you to bring God's people together and to stop the war. That is the part you must play in this book of history, the sweet part. The bitter part is not your problem."
"How shall I, one man, stop a world war?"
"You are not one
man. You have an army of Twelve Knights. You have the Holy Grail. You have the
power from the blood of Christ. You have the blood of
"This army you speak of; it's only twelve men at the most."
"No! That is not
so. It's not very big, but you only see a few men who have been charged with
guarding the Holy Grail, and a few others who have been guarding you since your
birth. Throughout the world the Holy Father will send millions to your side
"All right, how shall we start?" He looked at Simon. "What about you? If you are to be my constant companion, I should know something about you." Philip reached out to shake his hand for the first time. Simon's hand was so big, it completely covered Philip's, and Simon smiled about that.
"They call me Simon because of Simon of Cyrene, who helped Christ carry the cross. Some say that we black people get our strength from a blessing that God gave to us because of Simon. I don't know about that, but I will help you carry every cross God sends you."
"You look like you could carry anything. I'm glad you were picked. However, do not treat me like a king. I am your friend. I don't like this idea of people bowing down wherever I go. That has got to stop. If you are standing when I enter a room, remain standing, and if you are sitting, remain sitting. Understand?"
"As you wish, your Majesty."
"And none of that Majesty crap either, just Philip or Phil."
"Philip." Simon slightly bowed in fun.
"Code names, Merlin, Simon, what next? Let's meet our Army."
"I think you would like to meet the real Knights first," said Simon. "They were specially trained. In fact, one of them was the one who trained me. I will fetch them for you. You should remain with the Grail, for it will protect you more than I can." Simon left the room, ducking through the door. He returned shortly with eleven men close behind. "I have instructed them not to kneel, bow, or call you anything except ‘Philip’."
The men lined up against
the wall, and Philip went down the line shaking each man’s hand. "My name
is Jonathan. I was a Jew in
Philip continued. Two
more were from
"My name is Philip,
only Philip. I understand we have a job to do. I know nothing about war, so I
will have to depend on you for help and guidance. I assume you twelve have been
the leaders, and so that is how it shall remain. However, when I first arrived
"I am here." Pierre de Saint Clair had been standing in the doorway. At the mention of his name, he stepped into the room.
"I have been the teacher of these men. I also have been the keeper of the Knight’s Secrets, just as Merlin has been the keeper of the Secrets of the Church. But that work is finished. I must stand down, for you are now the head. What you command, they and I will do unto death. That is how they were trained. Victory or death is their only way of life. They will not back down from anyone, no matter the odds. That is their way. That is why we picked them. I am very proud of these twelve men. There are no better on the face of the Earth."
After his brief
appearance, Pierre de Saint Clair went back to the beach. A black chopper
swooped down and retrieved him, then raced across the sea. Philip watched until
it was out of sight. By then, the sky was reddened by the setting sun. The
color reminded him of the blood that had been shed the past two years. It
reminded him of how modernism had slowly advanced until it had captured the
souls of the children, and how a world bereft of spirituality and the love of
God had descended, slowly at first, then uncontrollably into anarchy. His
grandfather and his father had warned the European Nations that without
Christian unity, this would be their fate. It had now come to pass. The red
clouds over the sea were a symbol of the shed blood that had flooded Eastern
In the morning, Father Merlin was up before the sun as he
prepared the table for the
. He prepared the table for the Mass, placing the Holy Grail to one side, but without removing it from the box. He woke Simon, who in turn woke all who had been able to sleep. He entered Philip’s room last. Simon and three other Knights carried the table outside, with the Grail still on top. Merlin said Mass as the sun rose gloriously over the mountains. Before it was over, every Knight had received the Body and Blood of Our Lord and they were in prayer when Philip spoke:
“Why don’t we walk to
When the prayers were finished, the Holy Grail was placed on an old two wheel cart and pulled by two asses. Philip, Simon, Merlin, and Jonathan went ahead of the cart. The rest of the Knights followed behind. The three choppers went out ahead to scan the roads ahead of them. They marched all day, and, as they marched, crowds gathered to marvel at the spectacle, mostly in silence, but some jeered.
“Who are these nuts?” or “What is this, the thirteenth century? Are we going back to the middle ages?” Philip and his small army paid no attention, but kept on marching. No one bothered them physically, since the Knights were well armed. But most must have thought they were a bunch of crazy people.
They passed through
“The popes lived seventy years in this place. The hundred
year war between
Jonathan continued looking up at the cathedral as he spoke. “Saint Joan of Arc would have had our help, and
They walked through the castle walls towards the cathedral
and up the stairs to the large doors. The doors were closed but not locked.
Simon pushed them open, and Philip walked in with all the Knights and Frenchmen
following behind him. Philip worried about violence and he wanted to pray that
he could bring peace to
Philip stopped just inside the doors. All around the church could be heard laughter and screams. When his eyes focused themselves to the change in the light, he could see that all over the beautiful church were men and women having a wild party. Against one of the pillars were two men kissing. In the pews were many couples engaging in all kinds of sexual acts. Philip could see the pulpit and a man chained to it with no clothes on. Another man with a whip was commanding him to preach. On the altar were two young women dancing without clothes on. The Tabernacle was open, and they were dancing obscenely before it.
An anger welled up in Philip that he did not know he had. He turned to Jonathan and Simon. “Give me your weapon, Jonathan. The time for talk is over.”
Jonathan handed him a strange gun. “Do you know how to use it?”
“No!” He replied as he fumbled with it. It was strange with two large springs on both sides of two barrels and no hammer.
“Pull back this safety latch. Hold here tight with your left hand and pull the trigger with your right. Be careful where you point it. It will blow a hole in a brick wall.” Jonathan stepped way back.
Philip pulled off a short burst of shells, and he almost lost control as he went from the floor to the dome and almost over his head. This was not because of the gun, as it had no kick but just from the sudden noise and power coming from his hands. He gained his composure and pointed the weapon level again as the laughter stopped and everyone turned to face the crowd of men at the door in white and red.
Philip started walking down the main aisle. He looked at the two necked men at the pillar. At first they looked at him with fear, but then started to giggle. They should not have giggled. Philip, angry, turned his gun towards them without thinking and opened fire. He blew the men off the pillar and clean across the floor, as blood splashed ten feet up the white walls. What ever was in this gun was very powerful.
Philip lost control and he turned to the pews and started mowing down naked men and women everywhere. The shells were powerful and because of flat tipped bullets the bodies were thrown over three and four pews. He kept walking towards the altar with his finger hard on the trigger. When he ran out of shells, Gaddis threw him another machine gun, and he kept on shooting.
Eleazar and Josue stood at the side doors and let no one out. When Philip reached the foot of the altar, there were only four left alive. The two naked girls on the altar, hugging each other in fear, the man with a whip, and the man chained to the pulpit. Philip stared at the two girls with fearful hatred in his eyes.
He remembered how during the French Revolution the “Goddess of Reason”, a prostitute, was declared the official icon of the government, and she danced naked on the main altar of Notre Dame. These two girls were mocking the open tabernacle of Our Lord.
Philip could see into the tabernacle and saw that the Chalice of Hosts was there exposed to this mocking. Quickly, without thinking, he raised his weapon and blew the two girls off the altar. He continued shooting at them until they were blown completely across the slick floor to the back wall. He shot so many holes in them that you could not recognize whether they were women, men or animals. He was out of bullets again, and Jonathan handed him another weapon. Philip, trembling with anger, looked at the chained man. “Who are you?”
“The Cardinal, I am the Cardinal,
“And you?” He turned his weapon into the face of the man holding the whip. “I think we need a sermon.” Still trembling, Philip placed the tip of the weapon against the man’s lower lip. He waited for the sermon as he looked at the Demonic Symbols on his robe. The man made the mistake of giving a slight nervous smile. Philip pulled the trigger or maybe his shaking hand pulled the trigger. Anyway he blew the man’s head completely off.
Philip handed the gun to Jonathan. Simon unchained the Cardinal. Philip walked up to the altar and bowed before the tabernacle. He looked inside and saw that the Lord was still inside. He looked around for Father Merlin. Merlin hurried up the steps, closed the tabernacle and lit the candle.
Turning away from the tabernacle, Philip looked around the church. Blood and bodies were verywhere. The new army took up the entire center aisle, which was hundreds of feet long and twenty feet wide. Frenchmen lined the back of the church and took on a great fear of this new King.
Philip thought to himself that he had just committed a great sin and needed confession but at the same time he though, “This irreverence has been building up to this for a long time and has to stop somewhere, the inevitable result of a lack of respect for priests, the Mass, and all authority. No Fear of God! We’ll see!”
He shouted at the Knights in the aisle, “No Longer! No longer shall My Lord and My God and My Church be mocked.” Raising both hands above his head he continued, “Are you with me?”
“Where you go, we go to the ends of the earth,” Shouted Jonathan. And all the Knights raised their hands and shouted: “To the ends of the earth.”
“Father Merlin, would you help the Cardinal dress and ask him to offer a mass of thanksgiving for us?” Philip knew that Father Merlin was not happy about his actions and was somewhat frightened so he gently put his hand on Merlin’s shoulder to show that he was calm now and the anger gone.
“Yes! I will take care of the good Cardinal. Then I will hear your confession. You cannot go against God’s commandments even as King.”
Maybe Philip sinned and maybe not. Only God knows, but from that moment on no one disrespected the Body and Blood of Christ or any priest. What Philip did in this church spread throughout the world and in spite of his gentleness a respectful fear of him continued to the end of his days.
After his confession and the Mass, Philip sat in the first pew with the Cardinal. “Your Eminence. I am Emperor Philip von Habsburg. I have a letter here from His Holiness …”
“You! You are the King? You are the one! My God! I didn’t
really believe it.” The Cardinal put his face in his hands and said a prayer and
then said: “I received a letter from the new Pope. He told us of you and sent
us a copy of the Papal Bull declaring you Emperor. I was in Mintz when he left
“When he said he would return to
Philip put his arm around the Cardinal: “Never mind, Your Eminence, I have very little time. How can I best speak to the people of this town?”
“The Television station was bombed, but one of the radio stations is still working. It has been taken over by street gangs. The good people hid in their homes but they listen to find out what is going on.”
“Jonathan, the good Cardinal will show you how to find a radio station. Take it over and start broadcasting that there will be an important address soon. Make a lot of commotion as you go there, so that the whole town will be listening. I will follow soon with the Holy Grail. Simon will stay with me.”
Inside the radio station everything was quiet, except the
soft voice of Jonathan over the mike, speaking to the people of
“I’ll take over from here.” Philip said as he entered the radio station. He took the mike in his hand and looked over at Simon and the Box.
“My fellow citizens of
“I carry with me the Holy Grail of Our Lord, the Chalice that Christ used at the last Supper. It is half full of the Real Blood of Our Lord. It is the power that was in the Ark of the Covenant. Its power is with us now. Meet me at the steps of the Palais des Papes and see it and receive its blessing.”
As Philip marched back to the Palis des Papaes with his army, the crowds began to gather and to follow him. They grew so large that it became harder and harder to navigate through them. At the steps of the Palais, two Knights set up the Box on a table. The Cardinal moved a mike out to the edge of the steps. Philip looked down at the crowd. It had grown to a half million men, women, and children. The Cardinal stepped before the mike. Everyone became silent.
“My Children! I received a letter from the Holy Father. It
is true what Philip said. He is King of France and the
“May I present to you, Philip von Habsburg, the King of France.”
The crowd was totally silent. There was no applause, no laughter, no murmuring, nothing. Philip stepped up to the mike.
Merlin opened the box and pulled out the Chalice and held it over his head so that everyone could see. The sun glistened against the golden handles. The brown colored glass sparkled and the sun shot through it spewing rays of light across the crowd. The crowd was awe struck and made sounds almost like pain but more like fear, and then a deafening silence. Merlin placed it back on the table for people to come forward and look closer.
After time for reflection, Philip addressed the people again, “If you are with us, follow me.” Philip leaped down the steps to the cart. Simon carried the Box down the steps and laid it gently on the cart. Philip raised his fist, “Pick up your cross, your gun, your sword, beat your plowshares into swords, and follow the Lord. Follow the Grail.”
Philip and Merlin went first. The cart and Simon followed,
then the Knights and all behind them began to walk with thousands and thousands
of men with guns, shovels, and clubs right behind them. Even women and children
followed with food and drink for the trip. The line of people went down the
streets for tens of miles. On they went until they marched under the triumphant
arch of the city of
They marched on towards

return to power, thousands more joined his march to
Perched high atop a hill overlooking a lush valley was the
famous Twelfth Century Basilica de la Madeleine, considered the finest
Romanesque structure in all of
Inside, Merlin said Mass for the small group. Outside the Cardinal held Mass on the top of the terrace. The twenty monks of the Basilica helped him with the communion. As the sun set the crowd made small fires and set up camp for the night. Three black choppers moved around the sky checking for trouble in all directions.
Philip and Merlin walked around the Promenade des Ramparts as the sun set over the beautiful meadows below. As they walked, Merlin explained to Philip that the tomb of St. Madeleine was hidden below the altar of the Basilica. Philip would see it later. They climbed the long and ancient stairway to the top of the tower of the Basilica and looked out over the Morvan countryside.
Philip looked down at the millions of Frenchmen who had
followed him this far, “Look at all those people who have placed their trust in
me. I don’t even know what I’m going to do next. I don’t even know why I’m going
“Philip! Don’t forget who you are and who you are representing! They are not following you. They are following a dream, a dream that all this war will be over. But they know it won’t end by itself. They know that they have to stop it with action. They also know that God sent you and that this is their last hope.” Merlin looked down at the fires dotting the grassy terrace. “I realize that you probably know this, but this terrace was the starting point of two Crusades.”
Philip looked down at the crowd. “It must have been a lot
like this.” He answered. “A few well armed knights with their white robes and
red crosses, and a crowd of untrained Catholics, out to do the will of the Holy
Father. The reasons are almost the same. If they had not gone out to fight, the
Moslems would have eventually run over all of
“Father, the last battle of the crusades was a sea battle led by Don Juan.”
“Yes! He was one of your relatives.”
“I know! My father talked about him many times, but he always insisted that Mary won that battle. Don Juan had a picture of Our Lady of Guadalupe hung in his cabin on his ship. He had all the soldiers of all the ships pray the Rosary, then and only then did he put on his sword. He was outnumbered ten to one, but he was victorious. And according to my father the ‘people power’ of the Philippines, who took back their country from Marcos, was really ‘Rosary Power’, since Cardinal Sin had a Rosary crusade going on for three years prior to the victory.”
Philip looked down at the crowd. They were not trying to sleep. They were talking and singing. “Idle talk, idle time. Father, help me. I need a mike and speakers.” They went down the stairs and solicited the help of the Cardinal. The monks brought out the mike and set it up on the top of the terrace.
Merlin spoke to the army first. “Crusaders of Christ, kneel
down for my blessing.” After the crowd moved to their knees, the father blessed
them all, using holy water. “We have a job to do for Our Lord, and we need
help. And so, we will solicit the help of the Blessed Virgin Mary. I hereby
consecrate this Army of Our Lord to the Immaculate Heart of His Mother. I ask
that she place her maternal mantle of protection around us and illuminate our
ways. I ask that her merciful eyes light our ways. I ask that the victory she
“Your King has asked that we pray the Rosary at the end of every day and at the beginning of any battle we have. He has asked that as we walk, we pray the Rosary. If and as we fight we pray the Rosary. If we do this, she will not leave us unaided against the Red Dragon. Philip has asked to lead us in prayer.”
Philip knelt down facing the army. “Let us pray. In the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit…..”
The next morning as the sun broke over the mountains, the
people’s army was already on its way to
When Philip’s army reached the outskirts of
“Where are you going? Don’t come any closer. Go back.”
“Calm down, my friend. What’s the problem?”
“Stranger, have you not heard?
Philip looked around at his twelve captains. “Camp here.”
Then he summoned Father Merlin. “Let’s see this city.”
Merlin, Simon and Philip climbed the last hill before the
bridge. The stranger followed. On top Philip saw
“What happened?” Philip addressed the man but didn’t take his eyes off the remnants of the city.
“I don’t know.” Electric power had been out for weeks. No
one had fuel to run their cars. Mobs ran the streets killing and looting. One
day, bishops, priests, and nuns went around warning all good people to leave
“I expected this.” Merlin interrupted without looking around at anyone.
“What do you mean? You expected this? If you knew about this, why did we come here?” Philip was confused.
“No! I didn’t know. I expected. I knew
Merlin turned around to see Philip’s reaction. But Philip had heard so many strange things in the past few days that he was no longer surprised at anything that Merlin said.
“Simone de Beauvoir, also from
“The two wars and the split of
Philip continued to stare at the rubble that was once
Philip was hoping to use
He left in haste. Philip addressed Merlin again. “I need to talk to all the French people at once. Where can we find a radio or television station that has not been destroyed?”
“I don’t know, but we can find a radio or television and listen in. We’ll find out if anyone is broadcasting from anywhere.”
The station they found and took over was just east of
Philip looked at the camera for a while not knowing how to start. He decided he had better open him mouth or all would be lost.
Finally Philip opened his mouth, and the words were suddenly there.
“For the past three years, this country and most other countries of the world have been torn apart by civil wars. Your government no longer exists. The army and police forces are in disarray and can no longer function. Law has become the law of the mob. Many cities are governed by gangs of children who roam the streets killing and looting.
“For this reason, I was called to
“He commanded me to restore order to
“He also gave me power from God. He gave me this.”
Philip put his hands in a cloth, picked up the Holy Grail and held it before the television Camera. The gold and precious jewels glistened in the lights. As he held it, the coagulated blood liquefied before the camera and changed from black to bright red.
“This is the Blood of Christ, our salvation. This chalice is the same Chalice Christ used at the Last Supper. This Chalice was in the Ark of the Covenant that Moses built. This Chalice was used by Melchisedec to ordain our father Abraham. This is the Holy Grail.”
He set it down reverently and bowed before it. He paused to let his words sink into the minds and hearts of those listening and then went on:
“When I drank from this Holy Grail, I received the wisdom as to how God wants me to restore order and how I should govern, in fact, how the world should have been governed from the beginning.”
Philip paused and looked into the camera with authority. Not the authority from man but the authority from God.
What he didn’t know was that the satellite was not only beaming his message all across France, but it was sending it to Russia, Germany, Poland, Hungary, Yugoslavia, North and South America, Africa, and Asia. Audio tapes were being made by monitors and would be re-shown to government leaders, cardinals, bishops, union leaders, underground rebels, and, within a week, everyone on the face of the earth would have heard of “The King”. Everyone would be talking about the man called Philip. He went on:
“From this moment (8:45 P.M. on April 1), all crime in

Reaching down, Philip picked up a folder only a quarter inch think.
“A long time ago my father wrote a sample constitution as a guide to the emerging countries leaving communism and coming into the European Union. None of these countries accepted this constitution, but I think it was the best form of government ever designed.
“This constitution is based on natural law and God given
human rights. Similar to the original American constitution, it will have total
religious freedom, the first of all human rights. The elders can govern however
they want by the consent of the people without any interference from me,
providing they do not violate the basic laws of this constitution.
“The elders selected by the people and the religious shall set up small local governments based on this law. They shall decide on the rules of order and implication of this constitution. They shall be judges of every dispute just as it was before King Saul, our first King. Whoever breaks this peace from this hour forth, it shall be reported to me though these Knights. You will be governed by this paper and not by people. Everyone from the rich to the poor will obey the same law.

“I will collect no taxes. I will make no laws. I will accept no gifts. God will and has supplied my own needs and those of my army. My only job will be to protect this constitution from any change and the people from any abuse.
“If you have need of taxes for roads, utilities or whatever, you can set up a community chest approved by the elders and judges. All businesses shall set up guilds so that all employees receive fair benefits from their work. Business and guilds will work together without government interference.
“There will be peace because I will protect my people, the little people. If somehow one of my men is killed, I will personally come to avenge his death, and it will be better for those responsible if they were never born. It will be our vow to go to the ends of the world at any cost to avenge the death of one Knight. To harm one Knight will be the same as bringing down the wrath of God.
“His Holiness has ordained that whoever dies in my service to protect any Knight, priest, nun, bishop, cardinal, or child shall receive a plenary indulgence and shall not see any fires of Hell or Purgatory. But whoever goes against any one of us shall be condemned.

The Response of the World
“At any moment now we will all be raptured up to Heaven. Christ will then destroy this Antichrist and the Beast, and purify this world. We will then be brought back to this world to rein a thousand years with the living Christ. Prepare to be raptured, and pay no attention to this Antichrist.”
The PTL followed suit, Jerry Falwell declared that God spoke
to him and said that “The Antichrist is alive and gathering his army in
The Catholic Spiritualists declared that Pope was the Antichrist because he had re-stated that Catholic Dogma takes precedence over spiritual revelation, therefore they wanted nothing to do with his other sword.
They announced to all their followers not to worry about the civil wars because private revelation had declared that there would be a warning from God before the chastisement. The fact that half the world was already dead did not seem to bother them. They still were waiting for the prophesied warning that all would see and be converted.
The Liberal Catholic Church had hoped for a democratic Pope, and now they were in disarray. The American Bishops had Conferences after Conferences but could not figure out what to do about Philip and his authority from the Pope.
The Traditional Catholic Church, who had
refused to accept the changes in the Church after Vatican II, argued amongst
themselves, and decided to wait and see if the New Pope would restore the
Most of the Bishops of the world had already received letters from the Pope and were quietly informing priests, nuns and brothers of the Pope’s will. They were informing the people and the people were talking to everyone.
The American President called an emergency meeting of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. All Chief Admirals, Generals, Senators and heads of State attended.
President Thomas addressed his audience, “Gentlemen, you have all been watching television and know about this man called Philip von Habsburg, who calls himself King of France.”
President Thomas: “Please, Senator, we are not here to
discuss his merits or flaws. We are here because he plans to invade
General Lee: “May I remind you, Mr. President, that
President Thomas: “Yes! But we have no right to interfere in a civil war of Germans against Germans. There is a German General that has some authority but not much.”
Senator Grimes: “Bull ####! That is exactly why all these wars have happened all over the world, because we have done nothing, and you know that Moslems are behind the mobs and the economic crash. And what do we know about this General? Is he going to be another Hitler?”
“President Thomas: “We know now that it was the Moslems, but it’s too late. It takes all our efforts to keep peace at home with all the mobs here. But an invasion of one country into another is something we have never tolerated. The Moslems were German citizens.”
Admiral Williams: “Mr. President, why
should we try to stop this King Philip?
With no more than a speech on television and no deaths that we know of,
he has totally restored order to
General Lee: “What if he comes after our bases also?”
General Macarthy: “He wouldn’t have a chance. He has no planes, no tanks, just some farmers with almost no weapons.”
President Keys: “That’s beside the point. We don’t know his intentions and we don’t know what other countries will do.”
Senator Pane: “What other countries? All are in anarchy. If
we stop him and I’m sure we could easily,” he looked around at the Generals and
the Generals nodded, “but we would have the entire Catholic Church against us.
Let me remind you that 40% of this country is still Roman Catholic, and 85% of
Silence prevailed for several minutes. Senator Mills leaned forward over the table and looked around at everyone with a very serious look. Quietly he said.
“What if he is the Antichrist?”
No one answered, and again there was silence for a time. Finally, President Thomas broke the silence:
“I don’t know what he is up to, but we had better find out. General, send out a representative from one of our German bases to meet with him and find out his intentions. If he will leave our bases alone, we will not try to stop him.”
Two days later, the Joint Chiefs of Staff met again. President Keys held two letters in his hands.
“Gentlemen, I have a reply from Philip von Habsburg, I have placed a copy on your desk. I would like you to read the letter of the general who met with Habsburg. I will read it out loud and you can follow along.
I met with Philip von Habsburg after flying from
Habsburg is a very plain-looking man with a large nose and curly hair. He was wearing, if you can believe all this, tennis shoes and blue denims. He was very polite and asked how he could help me. I gave him your message. This is his reply.
“I am going into

Sir, I believe that is the real Holy Grail. I for one will not fire any weapon against him, and if you ask me to, I will resign.
And, Sir, I am not a Catholic.

President Keys looked coldly at his staff. When all had
finished reading, he said, “I think we have a problem.”
After over a week’s stay at the castle, Philip was
depressed. His call for help to follow him into
But Philip expected two million Frenchmen to answer his
call. He couldn’t wait any longer. He had to move fast since these people could
only last a few more days on the food and water that they had. He did not expect
He looked at the Holy Grail. “If ever anyone put all his trust in you, this has got to be it.” He called the twelve men in. “Let’s march!”
Merlin went before the cart and the ass that pulled it. Philip
followed behind him with the Twelve As they marched, they sang songs and prayed
the Rosary. Through
As they went on through the country, crowds cheered them on and gave whatever they had in food, wine, water and fuel. Through Strasburg they went, and again the citizens cheered and helped.
“Your Majesty, we have good news.”
“Please get up. That makes me nervous. My name is Philip, just Philip, and kneeling is for God only. What is it?”
“The German General and his army is waiting for us in the
“How many are there?”
“Not many, Your Majesty, since they think you’re crazy, they laugh at you. They don’t consider you a threat, but they are well-armed. There are about three thousand men. The German mob also sent out spies to see what you are doing. We are those spies.”
Philip laughed. “Go tell them we are coming. We shall go right at them.”
“What about aircraft?”
“Sir! There hasn’t been any aircraft over
“So we don’t have to worry about air power?”
“What do you know about this German General?” questioned Philip.
“Nothing yet, he seems to be a good man who just wants what is best for Germany but is forced to use dictatorial methods to bring back order and peace to his country.”
“Is there any way of talking with him and showing him that
we want the same thing for
“We have tried but he does not trust anyone. You will have to confront him first. Sorry, but he does not trust you.”
“Philip looked over at the Grail and gained his courage again. “This is probably your doing also.” He gathered his generals around him to discuss strategy. The best thing to do would be to retreat to the mountains and fight Rambo style, but Philip couldn’t bring himself to allowing the Holy Grail to be seen retreating. There wasn’t time to work around the sides of the oncoming army.
“What about the American army? Will they help?”
“No sir! Word has it that they are afraid to stop you because of the American Catholics, but even many of the American Catholics think you might be the Antichrist.”
As they marched towards the German army the silence became deafening. Philip could hear a bird singing. Merlin and the priests pulled up the cart. He took off the leather cover. The Holy Grail shot out reflections of light. The Cardinal began to sing: “Holy God, we praise your name. …” Everyone followed in a low voice, but the sounds echoed across the valley.
Philip pulled out his sword and stuck it in the ground twenty feet ahead of the Grail. “That’s as far as they are going.” He said.
When the Germans came and when Philip saw them, he knew he couldn’t even slow them down. There were just too many of them. Philip began to worry about the Holy Grail and the priests. He began to consider how he would save them. He walked over to the cart and opened the leather box. The sun caught the gold, the stones, and the brown crystal cup, and put off such rays of light that Philip had to turn his eyes away before he would be blinded. He moved around to the opposite side and looked at the chalice. Merlin stood behind him. The blood had become liquid again, but seemed fuller.
“OK, my Lord! What a poor choice you have made in picking me to do your work. In less than an hour, all will be lost, including this chalice.”
Merlin put his hand on Philip’s shoulder. “Man of little faith. God does not depend on your brains or your power, only your desire to do His Will. He will do the rest. Look!”
Philip turned around to see what Merlin was pointing at. Over the hills from the West was an army of men as far as the eye could see. It seemed to be millions and they were mostly plain clothed civilians, armed with hunting rifles or axes or whatever they had.
Before he had a chance to rejoice over the sight, someone shouted, “Look, look to the south.” And up the valley from the south was another army of civilians. This time they were Austrians. From the north came another army of Germans. The German army dropped their weapons, and the German general walked forward towards Philip: “It seems my people want you over me. So shall it be.”
The Hot Line
Soon word hit
President Ahmadinejad listened to these traitors, knowing in
his mind that he was only using these communists for his own plans to welcome
Mahdi into the world. As mayor of Tehran
in 2004, Ahmadinejad spent millions on improvements to make the city more

majority of Shiites, the Mahdi will be the last of the prophet Muhammad's true
heirs, his 12 righteous descendants chosen by God to lead the faithful to their

Ahmadinejad looked worried for the first time in two years and spoke passionately,
“We must stop this self-appointed king.”
“We cannot count on our allies, for as you know, there is no
one that can be counted on to do what Allah needs to be done except a devout
Muslim.” He paused, “It is time we stopped him ourselves. The Russian

Orthodox, some even Russian Orthodox. There is even a Patriarch with him, the

After a short discussion of the possible ramifications, a
vote was taken. The Iranian president went to the hot line. Terrorist
President Thomas was waiting by the phone and he knew from the system who was calling.
President Thomas: “What can I do for you, President Ahmadinejad?”
Translation was instantaneous by computer.
“This will be our first direct conversation, so I am assuming this is very important.”
“Mr. President, we have a problem that we can not let go of.
Our Intelligence tells us that this man who calls himself “King”, this
Habsburg, is planning to unite all Catholics in the world against us. We
have millions of Moslems in
Thomas: “Since when have you cared about lives? One billion lives have been lost in the past two years, and we know you instigated all of it including the last pope.”
“You have no proof of that. If you did, you would have done
something. You have sat back protecting yourself and have done nothing. You are
more to blame than anyone else. I only called you to inform you that we are
President Thomas was silent on the other end of the phone.
He thought about the situation. He knew that Philip von Habsburg in only a few
weeks had become the Moslem’s number one problem. They would not be stopped
from going after him. He also had the problem of thousands of preachers and
Catholic priests shouting from pulpits and television shows that this man,
Philip, was the antichrist. Even if he wanted to stop
Since the Arabian oil had been cut off two years earlier,
the American oil reserves, especially military reserves, were very low.
Training flights, ship movements and transfer of troops were kept to a minimum.
Transfer to natural gas was underway for all the military but it was a slow process. Some of the military was even being used to
plant corn and grow ethanol fuel. Tax breaks and even government grants were
given to companies to get oil shale production going in
“Are you still there?” questioned Ahmadinejad.
“I am thinking,” said Thomas in a quite voice.
Ahmadinejad: “You do not need to respond. We are going to do
what we have to do to protect our fellow Moslems in

created the riots in

Ahmadinejad was now the one silent for a long time. “We do
not want a war with
President Thomas hung up and called the President of Israel without letting go of the phone. “Prime Minister, this is President Thomas. We have a problem.”
The President explained his conversation with Ahmadinejad
and asked his advice. The Prime Minister was surrounded by Moslems and knew
that it was the Moslems that blew up the canals.
The Prime Minister was silent for a long time and then
formed ideas out loud: “This Habsburg, many Christians are calling him the
antichrist. --- He is bringing peace back to
Thomas thought about it and did not like it, but the Prime Minister was right, maybe not moral but right. This would bother Thomas, also a Catholic, for the rest of his life but he would stand down and do nothing except warn Philip what was said in the phone call with Ahmadinejad.
President Ahmadinejad sent a message to a 15 year old boy
Philip, who spoke German fluently, was talking with the
elders and former government officials of
Simon entered the room looking at Philip, “Philip, I need to talk with you privately.” They moved away from the elders to a corner of the large room. Simon sat down so that they could talk face to face as Philip stood.
“We have a call from the President of the
“What do we know about their plans?”
“Nothing yet, but Israel agents in the Middle East and on the coast lines of Europe are watching out for them and will report to us. They will not come by air. They have no fuel.”
“No fuel? They have 20% of the world’s oil reserves.”
“Yes! Lots of oil but no fuel! They have no oil refineries. We are not sure they could make it by ship.”
“We will have to prepare for them no matter what. We must pick the battle ground and not them. Arrange to bring the Twelve to me at once.”
Philip finished his conversations with the elders and set up
a central government and smaller governments all over
It took a few weeks, but finally the Iranian plans were
known. They boated up to
“We need to pick the place of battle,” said Philip. “As long as we know they are coming they have no chance, but we want to loose as few lives as possible.”
After a two hour meeting it was decided to hold up in
Philip’s Twelve Commanders knew that the Moslems would come stealthily from all sides of the city. They would not attempt to battle his army in open warfare. Philip kept nothing in the city except Knights and trained-armed fighters. They hid in buildings all over the city and prepared a trap for the Moslems.
“Philip, a Moslem dressed as a priest looked into the Cathedral to see you and the Holy Grail and then left,” said a Knight dressed in priest’s clothing.
“They will come soon. I will pray at the altar and let them see me. Do not let more then five or six get through the doors.” Philip actually seemed unafraid and for the first time, courageous.
The Knights knew that they would come into the city in groups of twenty but would gather together at least in the last few blocks around the Cathedral and on only three streets. It was on both sides of these three streets that the Knights were prepared for war.
The Moslems came dressed as farmers but carried machine guns under their coats and they came in groups of from two to twenty. Just as the Knights predicted they started meeting up in three locations three blocks from the Cathedral on three different streets. In all there were only two thousand of them but they were all prepared to die for Allah.
At the entrance to the Cathedral they stopped spread out down the three streets. They were very silent. The Knights knew that the Moslems had hand held bombs but they had orders not to attack until at least they opened the doors to the Cathedral.
Suddenly the Moslem soldiers threw off their coats and raised their machine guns. Two stood by both doors of the Cathedral waiting for orders to swing them open. At the moment the doors were opened the Knights opened windows and doors on both sides of the three streets all at once up to three stories high and opened fire into the streets. The Moslems were hit on six sides all at once but ten Moslems made it into the Cathedral.
Above the main floor of the Cathedral, on both sides, were four balconies and on them eight Knights with modified semi-automatics holding special shells. The first shots exploded on impact spreading copper strips of wire in every direction. The Moslems lay dead at the door. These special bullets killed even if they missed.
Philip was praying in front of the Holy Grail and the first he knew of the fight was the blast of the doors and less than a second later the sound of eight blasts that sounded like thunder and then a string of explosions. Philip stood there not turning around. He just waited for a bullet or bomb to hit him. He listened to the sound of bullets and bombs outside. Almost a minute went by but he was still afraid to look behind him and stayed praying. Finally all sounds stopped and it was silent. He realized that he had not been hit and gave thanks but was not in any hurry to look back.
Slowly he turned only his head and the first thing he saw was one of the eight Knights that were guarding him from the inside. The Knight was standing there just looking at him. By the time he turned all the way around all eight Knights had come down from the balconies to the ground floor right behind him and were all looking at him.
Philip was embarrassed at his fear, but said nothing. He looked down the long main isle of the Cathedral. The doors were open and the light was making a 45% angle over the entrance. Philip could see a pile of debris and blood, shining red in the light, covering the floor. Philip swung his eyes away from the sight towards the Holy Grail. He wanted to cry over the dead and he wanted to be angry at God for making him involved in the deaths. He was about to curse God when a voice or a memory came to his head. It was the words of the great Pharisee, Gamaliel: “But if it be from God, you cannot overthrow it, lest perhaps you be found even to fight against God.” (Acts 5:39) He lowered his head, ashamed of his anger.
He turned around facing the eight Knights who were next to him. One of them pointed to a side door. The small group left the Cathedral with the Holy Grail. Outside was a battle ground with blood and bodies everywhere. There were only two thousand deaths but it was so concentrated that it seemed like millions.
Not one Knight was dead or injured. The Knights called in
the citizens to bury the dead and clean up the mess.
Philip’s grandfather said on his deathbed that
he was still King of Austria -
Philip did not believe in Monarchies as such but
as a protector of the people and their rights, sometimes it was the only
way. What he objected to was the idea of
absolute monarchs. A Monarch at the will
of the people was not a problem. Philip always believed that a

He told all the members of the Austrian government to step down. He ordered all local governments dismantled and reorganized according to the new constitution. He told the Austrian people the type of government they would have and that there would be no Federal taxes. Taxes would be on a local level because he would take care of the Federal Government with his own wealth.
“As King of Austria, I ask nothing from you. I do not want your money or your honor. I offer you only one thing, peace - peace between Austrians and peace from any foreign invasion. The elders of your town will judge disputes and set up government systems until you can have democratic elections. No one will ask anything from you except that you commit no crime against your neighbor. If you do, you will answer to me directly.”
The Austrians loved him. Millions came out to cheer him.

Philip marched around the Alps through the
On the first day in
They zigzagged around the fallen pillars and statues until they reached the steps to the main doors of the Basilica. Simon picked up the leather box very carefully and carried it up the long steps and past the Pieta. The main roof was still mostly gone. The arch over the main altar remained untouched. Down the long main isle they walked in the open air. They had to walk around and over fallen pillars, roof structures and statues. It was sad but the rays of the sun came through the open roof and struck the gold pillars of the main altar creating a feeling of Heaven. Philip looked at the damaged Church with sadness and then looked up at Simon.
“We have the money, money from Solomon, money
from the old
As they walked down the long isle, Philip felt a feeling of triumphant joy. He felt that he was called to do a job and it was being accomplished. The closer he got, the better he felt. Birds were flying around inside the main arch and the sun made them a shinny white. They were singing as they flew. Philip stood taller and taller as he walked, pulling his shoulders back. He was no longer ashamed to face God, because God’s command was being accomplished through him. It was happening and he was part of it. When he reached the foot of St. Peter’s tomb, he knelt down at the top of the steps and laid his sword on the floor. He kissed the first step and then walked down beneath the altar to kiss the glass over the tomb of St. Peter and say a prayer.
Simon carried the leather box around the railing to the main steps up to the high altar. He walked up and placed the box on the high altar right in the center over the tomb of Peter and removed the leather box over the Holy Grail. He bowed and walked backwards down the steps. Light streamed through the blown-open back wall and right through the brown diamond cup of the chalice.
As Simon was backing off the altar and as Philip was coming up from St. Peter’s tomb, the white clad Pope Benedict stepped into the area under the great dome. As he walked towards the altar, Philip spotted him and stood in silence. The white robe glowed in the sun and his black skin disappeared so that you could see nothing but his sparkling eyes.
Benedict walked around to the front of the stairs next to Philip and turned to look at the Holy Grail.
“Some power in the Blood of Christ, wouldn’t you say!” He knelt on one knee and then got up again.
“That is the true and real physical presence of Christ in that cup. ---- But then, it is the true and real physical presence of Christ in every Mass and every tabernacle.” Benedict then hugged Philip. “There is something missing.”
Merlin answered, “You are looking for this?” He held out a large spear point and screwed it on the tip of the lance. He then tapped it on the marble floor of the stairs and presented it to the Holy Father.
“Your Holiness, the lance of Cassius, known as St. Longines, as I promised.”
The Holy Father kissed the tip. He laid it on the altar and stepped back. “At last, my Lord, the lance that opened the Sacred Heart of Christ to start the Church and the Mass and the Blood that redeemed mankind and opened the gates of Heaven, and the Chalice of the first Mass, all back at their proper resting place.”
Philip then looked into Benedict’s eyes and said:
“I was worried that you would not be safe.”
“I told you that I would be OK here.” Benedict smiled.
“I was worried. You are my authority and without you I have none.”
“The next pope will not change my ruling without a just cause. But since this is not a matter of faith and morals, he could if he had just reason. You are here to see me because you think your job is almost over – right?”
“It will not be long now that we will have
brought peace and unity to
“What about the rest of the world? What about
“What? The entire world? I cannot do that.”
“That is what you said about
Benedict gave Philip a blessing and a smile and then turned and walked away. Philip stood there for over twenty minutes just stunned at the matter of fact attitude of the Pope and thinking of how impossible it would be to bring peace to the entire world. He looked at the Holy Grail that he was going to leave there.

The phone rang in the President’s office. It was the hot line from the Pentagon.
“President Thomas” said a voice from the hot line. “We have a huge problem. Come as quickly as you can to the war room.”
In the war room he was shown satellite photos of an Asteroid appearing suddenly from behind the sun. The gravitation of the sun slung in around in a direct path towards earth. One computer set up replayed the path and the sling around the sun, but the big screen showed the live Asteroid.
“Where is it headed?” asked the President.
“The Pacific Ocean just off Northern California, about 250
miles off shore between
“What damage is expected?”
There were over 30 people in the room including generals, scientists and most of his cabinet. Everyone just stood looking at Thomas or bowed there heads.
“I asked a question. What damage is expected?”
“Sir”, said the scientist, “it is huge, about two miles long and about a mile in diameter.”
“When is it expected to hit earth?”
“We have 14 days and 7 hours.”
“What damage is expected?”
“We have not assessed this yet. But it will be major. In fact it will affect the entire world one way or another.”
“What do you mean? Give me some of your best assessments.”
“The last Asteroid of this size that hit the earth may have
flipped the earth over and even changed the magnetic north and south
poles. That would be the worst
scenario. At the least it will cause a
title wave from one to two hundred feet high traveling at the speed of sound. …
When it reaches the shallow waters of the continental shelf it could clime to
1000 feet. It will flood
“Can we stop it?”
“No! We could hit it with a hundred Nuclear Bombs but all we would get is a hundred Asteroids and now they would be radio active.”
“What are your suggestions? What do we do? Where will it flood?”
General Macarthy: “You must start now to evacuate all low
“I have already ordered all Trident Subs out to sea and air bases are preparing to move all assets to mid states.”
President: “I cannot wait for all the information and every possible scenario. If the people have only 14 days they must start moving now. Give me a map of the areas to be flooded. I am going on Television a soon as possible.”
All Television and Radio stations were warned to give time to the President for a very important message to the people.
“Fellow Americans, we face the biggest challenge to our
nation in history and we must act now to minimize the damage and loss of
lives.” He turned to show a photo of the
Asteroid. “This Asteroid, which I have
named, Wormwood, is headed for earth. It
is two miles long and one mile in diameter. … It will not hit
Thomas changed photos.
“This is a map showing the possible areas of the West Coast
that may be flooded as a result of the impact of the Asteroid. It will hit about 250 miles off the North
Coast of California and may cause a wave up to two hundred feet high traveling
at the speed of sound. In the deep ocean
it will not be high but when it reaches the continental shelf of the coast it
will quickly raise to maybe 1000 feet and much higher when it hits land. It may go as far inland as
“I ask everyone to be prepared with extra food, water and whatever else you can think of because this could be much worse than what I have shown on this map. We do not know what impact this could have on the rest of the world. The impact will cause other problems throughout the world other than the tidal wave. Prayer would help all of us.”
Of course, evacuation did not go well and in spite of the
army many people were killed by those trying to gain an extra hour or two ahead
of others. No logic can be made of
this. Fear has no logic. Fear is
selfishness. The opposite of fear is not
bravery but love. The
By Tuesday you could see the Asteroid without a
telescope. Its tail did not trail its
path but pulled towards the sun.
Scientists met and argued all over the world as to what might happen when the Asteroid hit. It was argued that at one time in history the entire world was affected by an impact including flipping the world upside down. No consensus of scientists came forward but all agreed that it would affect the entire world one way of another. No time was left to do anything about it.
As the Asteroid hit the upper atmosphere it began to burn up and put off a huge red ball of fire around it and a tail of fire. Fear hit everyone who looked up at it. Churches all over the world filled up with people on their knees before God. Some Protestants stood out in the open expecting to be raptured up to Heaven before the Comet hit.

“It can only be an estimate.

President: “What is our best plan now?”
It was silent for a long time. Again General Macarthy spoke:
“The first and most important thing is that we must burn or bury the dead and quickly. I have talked with doctors and their biggest worry now is an epidemic of many different kinds of diseases because of the rotting bodies of people and animals. We must also see to the feeding of those who have moved and are without homes.”
President: “Are we going to use the army to do this?”
“The army, the police, fire departments, coast guard, navy, everything we have and as fast as we can.”
President: “What else do I have to know?”
Prior to President Thomas coming into the war room, the Generals and Cabinet were briefed on a bigger problem by two Physicists. After a moment of silence and everyone looking around to see who would speak out. Macarthy addressed one of the Physicists.
“President, have you noticed the location of the Sun?”
“No! I have been busy.”
“Well! Sir, the sun is not where it used to be. It is 28 degrees off the equator.”
“What does that mean?”
“A great deal! It means that the Earth has shifted 20 degrees more off its true North and South Poles. The Sun and Earth have not changed but the Earth’s angle of rotation has changed. We don’t know all of what this means but we have figured out one problem. The North and South Poles will melt a great deal of their ice caps over the next few months.”
“I understand some of what that might mean, but what is your assessment in the near future and in the long run?”
“The first thing that will happen is that the Ocean floors
will rise little by little until they are 10 to 25 feet higher than they are
now. You can imagine what that will do
to all coast lines throughout the world, and coastal cities. For example, a great part of
“Gentlemen, thank you for the briefing and before we leave
here today we will map out a plan of action to clean up the mess, feed the
people and prepare for future flooding and the lack of rain. However, before we start making these plans I
want to place one more problem on the table.
The Moslems are unifying to go to war against
Mahdi Unites Islam
Mahdi, although just a boy, interpreted the coming of the Comet as a sign from Allah that it was time to take over the world. The American army was neutralized and employed in taking care of the homeless people and expanding the food and fuel supplies. Khomeini and Mahdi prepared a talk to be addressed to the entire Moslem world. It was announced in advance that Allah had sent his final prophet to unify and take over the entire world for Islam and eliminate all heretics.
Mahdi sat in a gold high backed chair dressed in a purple robe trimmed with a two inch gold band from around his neck to his feet. He was just a boy but he had large piercing black eyes and a deep manly voice. In order to build his image Khomeini and others knelt on the floor in front of him so that the people could see that they all worshiped and honored him before zooming in to his face and his talk. Periodically the cameras would pull back to show the elders and the crowds behind them knelling before him. Khomeini wrote his speech.
“My children, my fellow Moslems, my true worshippers of Allah, I am Mahdi, the final prophet of Allah. I have come to bring Islam to the entire world so that there is only one god, Allah, and so that all heretics are eliminated from the world either by death or conversion.
“What slowed Allah’s plans for the past 1,200 years since the death of Mohamed is your divisions. There is only one Allah and only one Islam. These divisions must end.
“What I am commanding right now is that all Moslems become one people and one nation without borders. I already know what Islamic governments refuse to give up their power. I will take care of this. It is not government leaders that I am addressing now but the people. Because of greedy governments that live in luxury, we Moslems have lived as second class citizens in the world. Come with me and that will be over. Moslems will be the blessed of the world. Allah wants your loyalty here and now.
“In the next two days you will see the start of my plans to first unify Islam, then to rid our land of Israel, and then to invade Europe. Watch and see. May Allah be with you and protect you.”
Mahdi bowed his head and the cameras pulled back showing thousands of bowed heads in the great open air center.
Two days later
Like Philip, Mahdi’s army received
little resistance since most of the Moslems from all these countries thought
him the last prophet and joined in with his plans. In a short time Mahdi was standing in

Philip spoke sadly to his knights,
“This Comet has made me see that God is very angry with the
world. Our job is to appease the wrath
of God and keep doing it until His anger goes away. Half the world has died in the last three
years. With what I see in the Moslem
world and those who will soon die from the corrupted dead bodies and lack of
clean water we might be lucky if anyone is left alive in the next year. We can wait for the Moslem army to come to
Europe or go to the aid of
Some of the knights reminded Philip that the creation of
Finally Father Merlin had enough of the conversation.
“Enough, enough, we are Catholics and we have obligations as to the Jewish people. They are the root of our faith. If for no other reason than the fact that Christ and Mary are Jews, we must go to their aid. But I will give you a better reason. The Holy writings of God in the Bible and many other places show that the Jews must be planted in the own land in the end of times. The reason for this might not be very good for the Jews, but it is God’s Will. As such we have an obligation to protect them in their land until their appointed time.”
Philip pondered for a moment.
“What do you mean that it is not good for Jews?”
“Later, I will tell you later, but not now. Right now we must go to their aid.”
“The priest has spoken,” said Philip. “We go to

Behind them followed bands of old people, women and children with food and water and everything else that 5,000,000 people need to go to war. It would be the last Christian Crusade. It was estimated that Moslems coming from 6 different countries could reach 25,000,000 armed people.
Both Philip’s army and Mahdi’s army met in three different
places. Mahdi stayed in

The American F-16s, Stealth and Trident Subs were prepared with buster bombs on the aircrafts and on the Trident missals. There were two types to be used, the type that rips up airports and at the same time creates sticky fire over a two hundred yard area and the other type that divides into 50 different bombs seeking out and destroying tanks or any other vehicle that produces heat and energy.
To move two million people hundreds of miles on foot would
take a great deal of time, so Philip asked President Thomas to hold off the
Moslem army from invading

“No fear. No matter what you feel or hear do not fight or strike out. This is from God, and it is all in God’s hands now. We must only wait and pray.”
Philip backed away from the battle lines and when he could feel that it was safe, he ordered his men to back up. They continued to do this for hours. In the distance they could hear screams of pain and death as though the world was dying of pain. Gun shots were going off everywhere but nothing towards Philip’s people.
Behind him in the far distance Philip could make out a flickering light. He shuffled towards it still not able to see his own feet. It was Merlin. He had made a tent and lit candles inside of it. Merlin looked up at Philip: “Tell the people to gather around this tent and pray. This is going to last a long time but there is nothing to fear.”
A million Crusaders gathered around the candle which did not go out for three days. No one ate or drank but only prayed. The war was over, God had ended it.
Burying the Dead
Thirty hours of pitch black darkness ended with a slight red
light coming over the
Slowly everyone began to stand up and look around. No one talked and everything was very quiet. Eventually one bird sang out and people began to at first smile and then to shout and laugh.
Philip got to his feet and left his army and road on horseback to the front line where the first opening in the earth took place in Meggito. All the Moslem army was dead. He got off his horse to look at the bodies. They seemed to have died of fear. Most had their eyes open and some kind of great fear on their faces. Others seemed to have been shot full of holes from their own people. He could see that fear made them shoot at any sound that they heard.
Philip did not know it but the same thing happened all over the world during the darkness. People had died of fear. What fear, no one knew. But they saw something that scared them to death.
All Radical Islam was dead. Only the more moderate Moslems, who refused to come to fight, remained in the world. Mahdi was dead but his eyes were still open. He was shot by his own men in the darkness.
The Jews thanked Philip and made plans to bury the millions
of bodies around
Philip called President Thomas to inform and thank him for
the war in
“I am enlisting all the army, police and coast guard to bury
the dead. I have estimated that over the
past 4 to 5 years 75% of the world has died.
We probably have less than 1-1/2 billion people on earth today. Because of the chance of contamination, I
have asked the people not to bury the dead but only mark them because of the
chance of contamination. The army will
go around flagging bodies and others with protective suits will follow to burn
or bury them. You should do the same in
Philip: “To find and bury 2 to 3 billion people will not be easy. Has anyone come up with a logistical plan?”
Presiden: “The best our experts can come up with is five to seven years. In order to prevent the worse of epidemics, every inch of the world must be searched and cleared. Even the dead animals and birds must be found and burned. There is nothing more important than this right now, or a plague will take the rest of the world.”
Philip: “I will take care of this part of the world. Let me know what areas are not being worked and what countries are not contacted. We can work together to cover the entire world. We may need a lot more fuel than we have to move troops into every area of the search.”
President: “I can get you ethanol by ship loads. Give me drop off points and we will start delivering.”
Philip: “In the mean time we will use coal and wood. I will put one out of every two people burning or burying bodies. We will burn the weapons also.”
Philip and the President organized the burning and burying
of over two billion bodies. Philip went
All over the world people worked in pairs looking and burning bodies. Where they did not go, plagues wiped out entire populations. Another half billion died in the plagues.
It was seven years after the three dark days. Philip sat in silence hardly even talking with his wife and children. It was a heavy weight on him to see and remember all the dead, many of whom he had killed with his own hands or ordered killed. This was not how he hoped his life and faith would be. He now hoped that it was all over.
The Ark of the Covenant
After seven years of peace, Philip received a call from one
of his Arab friends. He and a crew of
twenty were searching around the
Philip, Simon and Merlin flew into
“What is it that brings me away from my family all the way to this desert?” Philip was not agitated but simply very tired of being a King.
“Sir, I have something of great interest to show you. One of the many earth quakes also split this mountain just below this church and just below where we are standing. It has exposed a cave with interesting contents. I think only you should see and decide what to do about it.”
“You are making this very mysterious.”
“Not so much so, Philip,” said Merlin. “I am sure I know what we are about to see.”
“What,” said Simon?
“Wait and see!”
They climbed down the mountain in the front of the church
only twenty feet down. There was a long
split in the mountain going all the way around the base. In the split was a large opening into a cave
at least 20 feet high and 15 feet wide. Through the entrance it was even
larger. Candles were already set up
waiting for Philip and two Knights stood by guarding the contents of the
cave. Between the two Knights Philip saw
what was so important to bring him all the way from
It was The Ark of the Covenant. Philip just stared at it with a little fear. He did not move forward, but Father Merlin did. “At last, at last, it must be the time prophesied. I thought it was this. Yes, I thought so.” He turned towards Philip. “That is why I came with you. I felt this was what he found.”
The two Knights must have cleaned it because it was shinning bright from the candles and the light coming in the entrance to the cave.
On both sides of the hole were two Cherub Angels looking like 15 to 16 year old boys with wings. Each boy (or Angel) knelt on one Knee facing the opening but with his eyes and head turned away from the opening. Their hands were folded in prayer. Their back wings covered the back side of the opening and their front wings angled down pointing to the opening. Both Angels were bowed down in prayer.
The entire gold trim of the ark was carved into grape vines, grapes, pomegranates, angels and strange writings. Four large gold rings were on the top four corners of the ark. Through these rings were two gold poles 12 feet long with gold knobs on the ends.
Philip spoke almost in a whisper. “This is the Ark of the Covenant.”
“Yes, yes!” said Merlin. “I knew it was somewhere in these mountains.”
“How did you know this?” Philip said.
“Oh! You forgot what I taught you. You will read in 2 Machabees 2:1-8 that

“Come, come, Philip,

Inside were two white stone tablets with writings on them but nothing else. Merlin bowed before the tablets. “Those writings were made by the finger of God. The first tablet has the first three commandments and the second tablet has the other seven, first how to love God and second how to love one another.”
Philip backed away.
He was still afraid of the

In the same cave Merlin, now almost 100 years of age, expected to find the body of Moses but did not. He wondered about that from that moment to his death.
While the bodies of the dead were still being buried and while Philip was re-building the Basilica of Saint Peter, the Holy Father was busy. He sent out a letter to all the bishops of the world. Not too many Bishops were left. His letter read:
The Peace of Our Lady of
On the causes of God’s anger and chastisement
March 25, 20--
Congregation for Divine Worship and Discipline of the Sacraments
100 years ago an Angel prophesied to three children in
[2.] In spite of constant attempts by our predecessor of great memory, Supreme Pontiff John Paul II, these abuses continued. He wrote the Encyclical Letters, Quattuor Annos, Ecclesia de Echaristia, and Redemptionis Sacramentum.
[3.] In 1984 Pope John Paul II asked for a report on the acceptance of the New Mass (Novus Ordo) or its rejection. Based on the feedback world wide, the Holy Father sent out the Indult, Quattuor Annos, granting to all dioceses the right to offer the Tridentine Mass with certain conditions based on a fear of possible disrespect for the authority of the Church to introduce the Novus Ordo and that these groups, although preferring the Tridentine, do not deny the True Presence of Christ in the Novus Ordo. Again we offered the Tridentine to all priests worldwide without the approval of the local bishop but the abuse of the Novus Ordo persisted.
[3.] In spite of constant attempts by our predecessors of great memory, from Supreme Pontiff John XXII till now, we have pleaded with our separated brethren for unity of all Christians. For this also God the Father’s anger would no longer be abated.
[4.] Because of the clear sign of God the Father’s anger on these things, I have determined to rectify these things.
THE REGULATION OF THE SACRED LITURGY
[5.] The regulation of the Sacred Liturgy rests
specifically with the Apostolic See..
[6.] The Roman Pontiff, "the Vicar of Christ and the Pastor of the universal Church on earth, by virtue of his supreme office enjoys full, immediate and universal ordinary power, which he may always freely exercise", 35 also by means of communication with the pastors and with the members of the flock.
[7.] It pertains to the Apostolic See to regulate the Sacred Liturgy of the universal Church, to publish the liturgical books and to grant the recognitio for their translation into vernacular languages, as well as to ensure that the liturgical regulations, especially those governing the celebration of the most exalted celebration of the Sacrifice of the Mass, are everywhere faithfully observed.
[8.] By the power vested in me by God, and because we have been unable to stop the abuses, we hereby and hereafter declare that the experiment with the Novus Ordo is over in the Latin Rite of the Church and will no longer be the Liturgy of the Latin Rite. From this time forward (with due allowances for the change) the Tridentine will again be the Liturgy of the Latin Rite.
[9.] The Tridentine Liturgy does not allow for experimentation or change and therefore the altar must be arranged according to the Rite, and the Alter rails must be returned to the Churches. All regulations including architecture of the Tridentine Liturgy are including in this apostolic order. The Tridentine Liturgy does not allow Extraordinary Ministers or alter girls.
[10.] The observance of the norms published by the authority of the Church requires conformity of thought and of word, of external action and of the application of the heart. All that is said in this Instruction is directed toward such conformity of our own understanding with that of Christ, as expressed in the words and the rites of the Liturgy.
[11.] The Sacred Liturgy is intimately connected with the principles of doctrine, so that the use of any unapproved texts and rites leads either to the disappearance or the attenuation of the link between the lex orandi and the lex credendi.
[12.] Individual Bishops and their Conferences do not have the faculty to permit experimentation with liturgical texts or the other matters that are prescribed in the liturgical books.
Any Catholic, whether
Priest or Deacon or lay member of Christ's faithful, has the right to lodge a
complaint regarding a liturgical abuse to the
to the Apostolic See on account of the primacy of the Roman Pontiff.
THE UNITY OF ALL CHRISTIANS
[14.] The failure of the last fifty years to bring about any unity of our separated Christians is mainly our fault. In stead of dialoguing on the local level with our separated Christians on doctrinal differences many Catholic bishops and priests have adopted the heresy of “pluralism” and even preached the same. There can be no unity without a single truth and a single doctrine.
[15.] The second failure on our part was the poor example we gave to our separated Christians in our Liturgy and sacraments. Many of our separated Christians have great reverence and respect for the Sacred Liturgy, even to the extreme, and have expressed their horror at our irreverence. This poor example will end at this moment.
The third failure or our part was the many slanders within the Church with our
clergy and the cover up of these great crimes.
We have discovered that this was a deliberate infiltration of both
communists and homosexuals into our seminary systems to water down basic
doctrine and our moral standards. We are
cleaning up these seminaries of any even slight indication of homosexuality or
pedophilia. Any complaint made against
any priest with even reasonable proof of immorality of any kind will result in
an immediate call to

above, I will now travel throughout the world meeting with our separated
Christian leaders and demand an end to this disunity. The former support given by governments to

easier. Radial Nationalism has ended. The concept of any World Government is

Philip traveled throughout the world selling his government constitution. He expressed that the failure of governments to support natural law and moral law of God, resulted in God’s anger and the destruction of 75% of the world’s population. With only one billion people left on earth and 15% of land mass permanently under water, it was not hard to convince people that the great calamities of the past years was God’s anger. The comet, the earth quakes, the three days of complete darkness could not be explained any other way.
Philip stressed that he wanted nothing more than to help people organize good governments and live happy lives. He wanted no authority for himself. However, he had the wealth of Solomon’s treasures and was using it to help all nations get quickly on the feet, and this was a great weapon to convince people to adopt his constitution.
God must have been pleased with Benedict and Philip because it began to rain throughout the world in a gentle, soft way and without strong winds. Rainbows were everywhere. Because of the shift of the north and south poles the ice caps were mostly melted away but enough was left to create just enough breezes and temperature changes to create and move small clouds from the seas to land and deposit fresh water. The world wide temperature changed to such a point that almost all the world was tropical. Some of the melting ice made it into the rivers and lakes of the world.
World wide vegetation increased at a drastic rate. Summer lasted ten months a year almost everywhere. Although some countries and parts of others were buried under the seas, what was left was like a Garden of Eden. In fact, food for only one billion people was plentiful. The world wide weather was so consistently gentle that changes in clothes was not even needed. Clothes were needed for modesty but not for weather.
Ten years after the great chastisement and World War III, Churches were packed; the birth rate was up drastically. Because there were seven women left to every man, the Holy Father legalized polygamy for just one generation to bring back population to the world. Within ten years the average age of the world went from 53 to 23 years.
Philip, himself, had ten children. Very little work was needed and people lived very happy. Charity was common but little was needed. Philip returned to his Austrian mansion with his wife and children. It was time to retire.
Pope Benedict came to
Merlin, Philip and the Holy Father sat down enjoying a fine Cabernet Sauvignon.
Philip von Habsburg: “God has used us to clean up the world and to bring about His Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. I have thought about the prayer Christ taught us, ‘thy kingdom come’. It has. Christ has defeated the entire world. Maybe it was painful, like birth, but the results are great, even wonderful.”
Pope Benedict: “Yes! What we as Christians could not accomplish, God was forced to do, Himself. We should not be proud of this. We should have done it so that He did not have to. The fact that 75% of the world died is not something to be proud of. God will not be mocked and when we failed to do His Will, He took over.”
Merlin, the Hermit: “Yes! We have been nothing but tools in His great hands. But do not be so content with what you see now. Remember, Philip, what I told you years ago.”
Philip von Habsburg: “What did you tell me? I do not remember.”
Merlin: “I told you about Apocalypse Chapter 10, the little book.”
Philip: “Yes! You promised to tell me the mystery behind this little book, which you said was a period of history. Why was it sweet in his mouth but bitter in his stomach?”
Pope Benedict smiled at Philip, but then his expression turned sad. He picked up a bible and turned to Chapter Ten. He read it out loud:
“And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud, and a rainbow was on his head, and his face was as the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire.
“And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea and his left foot upon the earth.
“And he cried with a loud voice as when a lion roareth. And when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
“And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices I was about to write; and I heard a voice from heaven saying to me: ‘Seal up the things which the seven thunders have spoken; and write them not.
“And the angel, who I saw standing upon the sea and upon the earth; lifted his hand to heaven,
“And he swore by him the liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven and the things which are therein; and the earth, and the things which are in it; and the sea, and the things which are therein: that time shall be no longer.
“But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound the trumpet, the mystery of God shall be finished, as he hath declared by his servants, the prophets.
“And I heard a voice from heaven again speaking to me, and saying: ‘Go, and take the book that is open, from the hand of the angel who standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.
“And I went to the angel, saying unto him, that he should give me the book. And he said to me: ‘Take the book and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but in thy mouth is shall be sweet as honey.’
“And I took the book from the hand of the angel and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey; and when I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.
“And he said to me: ‘Thou must prophesy again to many nations and peoples and tongues and kings.”
Philip: “I have no idea what that means.”
Benedict: “There is a great deal of meaning to this and it has unfolded right before our eyes.”
Merlin: “I promised to explain it to you in time and that time is here.”
Philip leaned back and looked carefully at the bible passage. He sipped the win and waited for Merlin or Benedict to explain: an angel from heaven, an open book, the voices of the seven thunders, the mystery of God, the voice from heaven, and a book bitter in the belly but sweet in the mouth.”
Merlin: “Philip, that angel you saw was your guardian angel and he guided you to do what you did. The book of the seven thunders was a period of history, a very short period of history. The mystery of God was how God would be forced to bring about his final world wide victory over his enemies using the seven thunders, the great chastisement and a period of peace.
“Because it is history it also includes this period of peace. And it seems sweet to us, but the results will be bitter in time.”
Philip: “That was my question, what does it mean to be bitter?”
Merlin: “This peace seems so good. Although many have died, those left are living in peace and plenty. There are no trials and tribulations, no heresies and other troubles. This all seems so sweet and in fact what most people pray for. Not saints, of course, because they know better.”
Philip: “What do saints know that I do not know?”
Merlin: “Trials and tribulations make us strong in our faith, but good times bring weakness in body and soul. Saints pray for and embrace the cross because without the cross we become weak in faith.”
Philip was a little uneasy because he knew that Merlin was about to take away his joy in the great and total victor he had a great part in. But the Holy Father seems to know exactly what Merlin was about to tell him. Benedict just sat still with a slightly sad look on his face.
Merlin: “God has given what 2000 years of Christians have prayed for – peace. But peace and prosperity breeds soft people. By the time most of the older people who went through the chastisement have died and the young people who were too young at the time or born after the chastisement reach their adult ages, faith will become soft. People will say that all is well and we do not need God’s commandments and sacraments. Many will not have the sacrament of Confirmation. Faith will become lukewarm. When that happens, the next great tribulation will come into the world. Because of this the peace will not last long, a little book of history. And then will come Chapter 11 of Apocalypse.”
CHAPTER TWENTY FIVE
The Monarch Retires, Peter the II Elected
Philip was sad. His job was finished and now he wanted to retire and prepare for death. He said goodbye to the Holy Father and Merlin and went to talk with his wife and children.
Empress Sofia: “We are antiques now, with nothing left to do. But we have accepted the work that we did not want to do, and became clay in God’s hands and you should feel good about that. What are you trying to say to me?”
Philip: “It is time for us to give up our titles of Emperor and Empress. It is time to give up all power and live in prayer.”
Philip: “There is no person that I know of that can take over without me worrying about too much power in the hands of one person.”
Philip: “That is true! If I disappear, where do people go to solve problems in their different countries? We cannot have another United Nations.”
Philip: “I want to

On the tenth year of peace lived a prostitute in a tent at

Then suddenly she quit all activity and went farther into the desert to be alone. After months living by herself in the tent, she gave birth to a baby boy without the help of a mid-woman or anyone else. The baby did not cry but simply looked at her with open large black eyes. He already had teeth and a full head of hair.
After only a few moments from birth the new baby smiled and spoke in a deep voice: “I am. I am here! I live!”
The election of Peter II did not make everyone happy. Mostly because of his age (44 years), but also because he was not even a bishop at the time. Although at one time a great preacher and retreat master, he had spent the last 10 years of his life in prayer secluded in the mountains praying for peace.
One Cardinal particularly was upset because he was not a
Cardinal or even a bishop and was not even at the conclave to vote. Gathering some Cardinals with him, he
declared himself pope, becoming the last anti-pope. He attracted liberal and Charismatic
Catholics to himself and another split in the Church began. He moved to
As predicted by Merlin’s interpretation of little book of Apocalypse, the long duration of peace and splendid fertility of the earth, produced people who became very ungrateful. They led sinful lives, in pride, vanity, unchastely, frivolity, hatred, avarice, gluttony, and many other vices.
Many began to doubt whether the Catholic faith was the true and only saving faith and whether maybe the Jews were correct still expecting the Messiah.
Because of the great ingratitude over the great peace, God give Lucifer and all his devils power to come on earth and tempt his godless creatures.

He had a high forehead and long strait Jewish nose. His eyes were always smiling and gentle. The rich and powerful came to him for advise and prophesy about their lives and families. Never did they get bad news from him and never did he charge them anything.

On the appointed time the same 123 religious Jews met before the dead body of Julian. His companion stood over the body. Doctors verified that he was dead and that he remained dead for three days. Julian’s companion was dressed in a tan robe with a gold metal band around his waist and still holding the dagger. He was young, about 17 years of age, with long blond hair, blue eyes and very white skin. He was picked by Julian to look like an Angel.
In front of world wide Television coverage, he placed his hands on Julian’s chest and then raised them to Heaven. Julian opened his eyes and rose up from his waist without hands. The imitation blond Angel bowed to him. He stood and looked at the crowd of Jewish Rabbis. Rabbis stood in silence with their mouths open. After a long silence, one Rabbi shouted, “The Messiah has come!” Then all repeated the shout and bowed in reverence to Julian. Julian raised his hands ordering silence. He looked first into the television cameras with his soft black eyes. Then he turned to the Rabbis:
“My children, my nation,

Jesus never claimed to be God or the Christ but his followers wanting to make him the Christ faked his words, words that he never said.
“I am the Christ, and I sent Mohamed, my prophet, to prepare the way for me. But some of his followers added things to his prophesies that I did not say. I will correct this so that peace between Jews and Moslems will began and then peace of the entire world.

Silence went throughout the Rabbis as each looked around to see if anyone would speak. Rabbi Ullman walked to the front of the crowd:

Julian came before the seven judges dressed in Rabbi Robes. He had around his neck a gold chain with a five point Jewish star. When he stepped forward to talk a rainbow of light appeared around him as though it was coming from his body. He had the appearance of Jesus Christ as we see him in pictures and Icons. He spoke with a deep but gentle voice:
“Judges of the world, God is pleased with what you have done to bring peace and government structure to the world. God has rewarded you with great prosperity in food and mild climate world wide. All this is good and something to be proud of. The one area of division that was never solved by you is the three great religions of the world, Christianity, Judaism and Muslimism.
“Another area of concern that you have observed and worried about is the constant degeneration of faith and morals in the world over the last twenty years. I know that you have been in dispute as to what to do about this problem.
“As you know I have solved the problem of Jews and Moslems in the
“I am here to help bring this harmony and prosperity to the rest of the world. I am here to help you and the entire world.”
Judge Giovanni of the European Zone stood to speak:
“Mr. Julian, what do we call you? What title do you have in this newly created Middle East Nation?”
“I have no title. I am a religious leader and prophet but not a priest.” said Julian. “I am not a ruler, King or President.”
“How can you help us? We are at peace throughout the world but we have a problem of a degeneration of morals because there is too much leisure time and life is too easy for people.”
Julian left the podium and walked back and forth with a smile on his face. Radiance increased over him until it glowed throughout the room changing from white to green to blue to red. He was showing his power and impressing the judges or at least producing fear in them. He went on:
“Why do you worry about the morals of the world? The commandments in the Torah and Bible were given so that people would get along in peace. You have peace. No one is harming anyone else. All these unreasonable rules that the Catholic Church or should I say, Pope Peter II, buts on people creates strife and disharmony. It is the laws that create problems and not the actions of the people. Did not God create sex and the pleasure of it? Why do we have laws against it? Did not God create food and the pleasure it gives? Why do we have some laws against its use? Yes! The laws were needed when we had no peace but we do not need these laws now.”
The judges took time out to talk with one another and began to argue back and forth. Julian sat down waiting for them to come up with any argument against him, and he knew they would.
Giovanni spoke for the seven judges:
“You are asking us to go against or disobey the Holy Father, Peter II. It was the Pope and his Emperor, the late Philip, who brought peace to the world and stopped the wrath of God. Are we to bring back God’s wrath for disobeying His Commandments?”
Julian stood up and went before the podium. He put out his right hand, palm up and rays came out from it lighting on fire a group of small flags in a tall vase in the back of the room. He then smiled at them:
“As I told you, I am God’s prophet and if you do not believe that I speak for God, then believe my power. If Peter II can show you this power, believe him, but if not, believe me. Get rid of these unreasonable laws and join in with me. If you do not, the conflict between those having fun and those keeping these unreasonable laws will escalate into conflicts throughout the world. Get rid of your obedience to Peter and have faith in God’s mercy. God does not want people to suffer. He wants them to be happy.”
Julian left the seven judges without waiting for an
answer. The world was mostly disarmed
and except for
The seven judges met with Pope Peter II, and tried to talk him into changing the moral law as he had done to the marriage law for one generation. They wanted marriage laws eliminated and the laws against fornication done away with. They told him of the power that Julian showed and advised that Julian had put together a very large army. The rest of the world was no longer equipped with armies. The world’s population was under one billion and no one suffered want of anything. The judges were afraid of Julian and told Peter the same. But Peter II refused to change the moral laws of God:
“You are being blackmailed by power and signs and wonders. Do you not know that the demons do these fake miracles? You want me to deal with a demon. I cannot change the laws of God even if I wanted to. I am the protector of these laws, not the maker of these laws. I allowed a slight change in the marriage law because no law ever existed in the Old or New Testament on one wife. It was a Church law and not a theological bible law. When it comes to Bible laws, Divine Laws, they cannot be changed.”
The judges were both afraid and impressed with Julian. They, in fact, began to make excuses for his ideas and little by little believed in him. They knew that if they sided with Julian they would be condemning Pope Peter II. Signs and wonders carried the day, and all the seven judges asked to become part of Julian’s Empire. Over the next year, Julian convinced most of the countries in the world. Peter and the remnant Catholics left were isolated.

Julian marched into the
Julian pointed to the outside altar through the doors where sacrifices were prepared. Lightning shot out of his finger and hit the outside altar lighting up the sacrifices into a great roaring fire. He then placed his hands over the oracle of the Ark of the Covenant and black smoke shot out of the hole filling the Holy of Holies with black smoke. Turning back to the cameras:
“You have now entered heaven on earth and the laws of the past are over. The prophet Jesus of Nazareth was not and is not the son of God. His followers made him to be a God and his Church is only superstitious heresy.
“The true Christ has come into the world. I am he. Your true God stands before you. I am Christ and God. There is only one God, and not three and that one God is me. Your kingdom with God is here.”
He paused and the people gasped and became silent. He had never said this before. This was a hard saying. He gave them time to grasp what he was saying and then went on:
“In my kingdom you are allowed to do all that you please, renounce fasts and sacrifices. All that is needed is that you love me. You who believe in me will be pardoned of all sins even before you commit them and live with me eternally on earth.
“Only two laws of Moses must be kept, the Circumcision and the Sabbath, or Saturday. But the other restraints of the passions are no longer laws but gifts from me. Freely love whomsoever you want so long as you believe and love me first.
“The sacrifices known as the Liturgy or the Mass of the Catholics shall be outlawed throughout the world. The Continual Sacrifice was symbolic of me, but I am now here.
“I am the Continual Sacrifice and therefore the Mass is over and shall be no more. It is outlawed throughout the world and whosoever offers or attends this Mass will be punished.
“I am God and only images of me will be kept in the world. All other images will be destroyed.”
He raised his hands up in a V shape and lightening came out from all parts of his body and fire from his eyes. He sat on the Ark of the Covenant between the two angles so that they seemed to be pointing their wings at him and ordered the feast to begin. At his command and as he had prepared, women stripped to the waste and poured wine on their bodies dancing in and out of the temple. Hundreds of naked women and men danced erotically all over the streets to excite the lust of men and women. Thousands of women went through the crowds giving out free wine and spirits. So is the real abomination of desolation as prophesied.
Enoch and Elisa
When the Abomination of Desolation occurred in the
When the smoke cleared the tourists were looking at two men dressed in century old clothes. It was a sight so strange that they stood staring at them. The tourists were frozen and could not move.
One of the men was over seven foot tall with at least a three foot black beard and long black hair. He had no gray hair. He had no cover over his head, and his clothes were made of brown un-bleached lamb’s wool. His robe came down just below his knees and his sleeves to just below his elbows. He had no belt. He looked even taller because of the man with him.
The other man was only about five feet tall. He also had a long beard and long hair but it was pure white. He had a hair rope belt around a long brown robe that went to the ground.
It was a strange sight, a very tall man who looked young but with a beard of an old man, and the other very short with the looks of a very old and wrinkled man. Finally the two men looked at the tourists and then at each other. They talked with each other for a few moments and then walked towards the crowd of tourists.
The short man was Elias, the Thesbite, and he spoke first: “You have come here to honor the Virgin Mary, the Mother of God. We are pleased.”
Enoch, the tall man, looked down at Elias: “We have made them quite frightened. Perhaps we should introduce ourselves.” Looking gently at the group:
“I am Enoch and my little friend is Elias. We have been sent by God to save people from their sins and bring people back to God. We are the two lamp stands before God.”
One of the pilgrim tourists was well versed in Scripture:
“You – you are the prophet from before Noah and the flood, the one that did, did not die?” She whispered the words and then almost choked on the last two.
“Yes! And my little friend has not died either.”
“He was taken up to Heaven in a chariot.” She was getting braver.
“Well! He was taken up to

“Well! My sweet lady, it is not Heaven.
We must die in Christ before we can enter Heaven and we have not died
Elias, although small in stature, spoke with a strong, masculine and authoritative voice that demanded respect and attention:
“How ungrateful the world continues to be. God has continually said from the time of Enoch to the time of Christ that if you keep the Commandments of God, He will give you peace and prosperity. God also told you that if you did not He would bring war and strife to you in order to bring you back to His laws.
“Over and over throughout history when there was great peace and prosperity the people forgot God. This era is no different. Did not you parents and some of your older people go through the great Chastisement and into the greatest peace and prosperity since the Garden of Eden?
“But what happened, you forgot God and His Commandments. You abandoned His Sacraments. You have accepted the demon, Julian, as your God. Julian, who mocks Christ and His Continual Sacrifice of the Mass, called himself god, but he is possessed with no other than Satan, himself.”
The group of tourists were shocked at Elias’ statements. They came to honour Mary but not as the Mother of God, but only as the mother of the prophet, Christ. Julian had convinced them with his miracles and gentle talk that he was God and that Jesus was only a prophet. They could not answer Elias but remained confused and silent. Elias became angrier about the stupidity of the people:
“In spite of the fact that Our Lord, Jesus Christ, proved His Divinity by countless miracles by Himself and by his disciples and apostles you have rejected Him for a demon who gives illusions instead of miracles. You did this to yourself even before the coming of the demon, Julian, by abandoning the very source of grace and wisdom, the Sacrifice of Our Lord in the Mass, and therefore lost the grace to see or hear the truth.
“This accursed one is sent by the devil in order to lead men into error. We have been preserved by God at a secret place, where we did not experience the suffering of men. We are now sent by God in order to oppose the heresy of this destroyer. Look, if we resemble you in stature and age.”
Enoch put his large hand on Elias’ head and spoke kindly to the people:
“Julian is possessed by Satan, himself, and is the Antichrist and the enemy of God. We have come to fight his heresy and convert you people back to the true God. We have come with the wisdom and power of the Holy Spirit. The power of the Holy Spirit is not illusions but real.
“After God punished the world for its sins, He tilted the earth in order to bring the perfect weather that produced all the prosperity that you now have. But you have abused this peace and prosperity and so it will end.”
Enoch raised his arms to the heavens and commanded the sun to
darken. Suddenly a black ball appeared
in the sky and moved in front of the sun, and darkness fell over
Elias was not so compassionate with them and pointed down the side of the mountain. Suddenly the entire valley flamed up on fire with black smoke engulfing the valley. Enoch smiled at his enthusiasm and waved his hand so that Elias would put out the fire and he did. Enoch addressed the people again with kindness:
“Repent of your sins and return to Jesus. Tell everyone that you can that we will go to
Right before their eyes Enoch and Elias disappeared. The people ran down the hill to the city and told everyone what they had seen. The Television Station broadcast their ranting and raving as if it were nothing but illusions but much of the world reflected on it and many went to Tiberius to see if they would show up. Julian sent ten of his demon possessed men to investigate and/or even kill the two witnesses.
But Enoch and Elias did not go directly to Tiberius. Instead they
appeared at the altar of St. Peter’s Basilica in
Peter walked down the stepped of the altar and bowed before the prophets:
“You are Enoch and Elias. I have expected you. Have you brought instructions for me from Our Lord?”
Elias spoke but this time with some kindness:
“Yes! Our Lord wants you to leave
Peter lowered his head:
“The great persecution of Christians is about to start?”
Enoch placed his two large hands gently on Peter’s shoulders:
“Yes! We are about to close up the skies and end the prosperity on earth. Julian will then order the mark of the beast and start martyring those who refuse the mark. God will send his angels to protect you and those with you.”
At that moment Peter was able to see with human eyes a large crowd of angles dressed in white with gold breast plates and helmets on them and carrying large gold swords. Around Peter and the angels appeared a bubble of light encompassing them all.
“Wherever you go this shield of light and the warrior angels will go
with you so that the demons that help the Antichrist will not be able to find
Peter bowed his head in obedience to God’s message but was sad because he knew that soon would be the biggest persecution of Christians in the history of the world. As prophesied more Christians would be martyred in the next three years than in all the rest of the history of the Church. Enoch and Elias bowed in respect to Peter II and disappeared.
Peter II started calling all bishops throughout the world, and those bishops who believed and obeyed him passed this on to priests and their people. Only about 25% of the bishops were left who had not abandoned the Church. Demons tried to listen in to these conversations in order to report back to Julian their plans, but all the conversations by phone or person to person were protected as if in a bubble and the demons could not hear or understand.
Enoch and Elias then appeared in the main
Elias spoke to the Jews standing there quoting the Old Testament prophets showing them that they were wrong in expecting an earthly king, when, in fact, Jesus fulfilled all OT prophesies as a suffering and redeeming Christ. He talked for over an hour and everyone listened quietly because of the way they appeared.
Enoch spoke to the Christians and Moslems explaining how he was taken up
He explained the power of demons and why Julian was a demon leading them
to Hell. He explained that God’s
Julian’s spies then tried to kill the two prophets and came at them in mass but ran into an invisible wall almost knocking them all out. Getting up they again tried to penetrate the shield that they could not even see. Touching an invisible wall but could not pass through, they backed off.
Again Elias spoke:
“Because of the sins of the people of the world, God has authorised us
to end the great prosperity that he has given the world decades ago. Because of your sins you no longer deserve
this prosperity. We will shut up the
rains throughout the world. Those who
believe us should start right now to stock up food because in a few months food
will be hard to find. We are going now
to shut up the heavens, but we will return to
Again lightening hit the centre of the square and the two prophets disappeared.
Enoch reappeared in the centre of the South Pole and Elias appeared in the centre of the North Pole. Both at the same time held out their hands to the heavens and the Earth began to shift. The already shift of the magnetic North and South Poles creating the improved world wide weather began to shift again so that the Poles were moved towards the intense heat of the sun. The great ice caps immediately began to melt and the rotation of the earth slowed down so that a day increased from 24 hours to 30 hours. At the same time Gravitation increased by 20% causing work and movement to be harder. A 150 lb man or woman suddenly became 180 lbs.
The melting of the ice caps started the raising of the oceans floors again and swamping the coast lines even more. As the ice caps disappeared, the winds disappeared. This prevented the movement of rain from the oceans to the land. Suddenly rain throughout the world ended.
Immediately it was noticed world wide that the days were longer and that because of the increased gravitation people were heavier and more sluggish. The longer day without water dried up the vegetation and in some areas the animals died from the heat very quickly. People who listened to the two prophets started quickly to pick and store whatsoever they could find before it dried up from the heat.
The two prophets again returned to
“Because of the sins of the world, mostly for accepting and worshipping a false god, Julian, we have shut off the rains and it will not rain again until we have completed our mission of bringing back the children to their fathers, the priests of the Catholic Church.”
Fear of the Lord spread throughout the world and cameras followed the two prophets as they preached and quoted the Scriptures. They performed miracles everywhere they went convincing many that they were the true prophets of God. Constant attempts on their lives were made by Julian’s hit-men but lightening always stuck their enemies dead before any harm could come to them. This also was televised. The killing of Julian’s men by lightening was impressive to the people.
Julian was informed of all that Enoch and Elias were doing including the
change to the world and the shutting up of rain. He ordered his armies to go quickly
throughout the world to gather all the food he could and bring it to
During these months of world wide famine the two prophets continued to
preach in the cities of
Julian ordered world wide television coverage of a speech he was about to make: He sat on the Ark of the Covenant in the Holy of Holies with cameras all around him. He now wore a golden crown and held a golden staff. He dressed in a gold trimmed white silk robe. He put on his most gentle voice and best smiling eyes:
“My children of the world,
“As you know two demons have come to shut off the rain of the world and
to bring misery to its people. I would
defeat these two now, but it worries me that some of you believe their lies. I cannot, I will not help those of you who
have believed them and rejected me. To
help and feed my people I ask everyone to come to
“In order to know who among you still recognise me as God and those who have believed these two demons, I ask only one small thing of my loyal children.
“Come here and show your faith in me and your rejection of these two
demons. I, in turn, will give you a permanent mark that will allow you to have
free food if you need it and to buy and sell throughout the world. In time, those without my seal of faith will
be characterized as united with these two demons. They will not be able to buy food. Free
transportation will be given to all who come here to my
For the next months people from all over the world marched into the temple making a pledge of faith in Julian as god, and being tattooed on the right hand and the forehead. The sign of the cross was outlawed. The sacraments, especially the Mass was outlawed, even marriage. The promise was heaven on earth without anything being called sin except not accepting Julian as god. After being marked they were brought into a great hall where they could feast on great tables of food and wine. Hundreds of cooks and waiters continued to bring food to the tables for months until all were marked that came.
The Holy Father, Peter II, went to
After all who wanted to come to the
With the help of demons, Julian’s henchmen went through the world seeking out anyone who was not marked and seizing them. People tried to hide in the mountains but the demons helped Julian’s henchmen and informed them of where these people were hiding. Only those with Peter II were spared this search and capture.
Enoch and Elias now had a very hard job convincing people to come to the true faith. Everyone who denounced Julian and accepted the faith in God knew that they would be tormented and killed for their faith.
Julian offered lust, pleasure and gluttony in exchange for worship. Enoch and Elias offered sacrifice and death in exchange for faith in the true God. In spite of this, by sound logical preaching backed by powerful miracles the two prophets were converting many day by day. This was angering Julian more and more until he became a raving beast. Every attempt by Julian to have them killed failed.
Conversion to the faith in Jesus Christ was especially successful with
the Jews because Enoch explained plainly what occurred before the flood and how
he introduced into the world the science of writing. He explained the reasons
for creation that the relationship between the Tree of Life in the Garden of
Eden and the symbolic sacrifices of the lambs.
He then showed that Christ’s sacrifice on the Cross, was the fulfilment
of this symbolism. He showed how the Liturgy of the Mass was the continuation
of Christ’s sacrifice on
Elias showed by quoting Scripture that the Catholic Church and the
Tabernacles throughout the world is the
He explained how Christ’s blood was the new covenant with his people and how Baptism was the continuation and replacement of the law of circumcision. He went on to explain prophesies of Daniel and how they prophesied Julian as the Antichrist and how he was possessed by Satan, himself.
Julian continued to torture and kill all who refused to worship him and receive the mark of this worship. He no longer put on the face of a kind and holy man but now took on the face of a violent and angry beast. Even the Jews who were the first to accept him as the Christ began to doubt him but continued to fear him.
Finally Enoch and Elias arrived in
Finally they marched up the long steps of the
“Son of Satan, your standing there is the Abomination of Desolation prophesied by Daniel and John. You do not fool us by your lies and promises. All you have to offer to these people and yourself is eternity in Hell where you will burn in the fires forever and ever.
“All the evil of the world culminates in you who are totally possessed by Satan and his demons. You can pretend to be god, but your reign is almost over and you will soon be rewarded for your evil with the pits of Hell. Your god, Satan, will join you in the fires of Hell.”
Julian became furious. Lightening and fire came forth from him lighting
up the entire
Enoch and Elias walked calmly out of the inner temple with Julian ranting and raving after them but unable to do anything to them. The people saw this and all realised that Julian was not god and that the two prophets had more power then he did. They came out before the altar of sacrifice and looked up to Heaven giving thanks and praise to God for protecting them and letting them confront the beast without harm.
A great light came out of the sky over them and they seemed to be listening to a voice from Heaven. All observed that they were talking to God. They bowed their heads in obedience to what God was telling them. The shield protecting them disappeared.
Julian sensed that the shield was gone.
He ran back into the
Julian jumped up and down like a mad man waving his arms around like he was swiping at invisible flies.
“See, see, these demons have no power over me.”
But Julian could see that the people were not responding to him. He could see that he lost them. They were no
longer looking at him as god. He left
the open square and went alone into the
Television cameras came in from all over the world to televise and report on the death of Enoch and Elias as they zoomed in on the two strange looking men stretched out on the Altar of Sacrifice like two lambs.
The actual moment of their death by Julian and his ranting and raving was played world wide over and over. Julian was loosing his fallowing day by day as people reflected on his demonic look as he killed the two prophets.
This was not the actions of a confident and calm god. Julian did not come out of the
Television cameras were glued to the two prophets but reporters avoided saying anything against Julian. They asked where these two came from and why they seemed to welcome death. They had claimed to shut off the rains and as a matter of fact, it had not rained for over two years world wide.
On Sunday many in the world were watching television around the
world. Some were expecting Julian to
come out of the
Suddenly right before the cameras the seven foot tall Enoch opened his eyes. He raised his large hands and crossed them over his chest. Elias then opened his eyes and sat up on the Altar of Sacrifice. Enoch said something to Elias and they got up and stood on top of the Altar looking up to Heaven.
The world was watching as the two men came back to life after three days and stood on the Altar saying nothing. They looked to the sky and then a star appeared over them. Rays of light came from the star towards them. Engulfed in these rays they slowly rose up off the Altar and little by little their bodies and robes turned into shinning white light. They continued to rise slowly up into the sky.
Suddenly Julian came running out of the
“These two impostures cannot get away from me.” He was shaking a fist towards the sky. “I will rise to the heavens and take them down and kill them again. Come back here tomorrow and see me rise to the heavens and bring them back to earth where I will burn them on this altar.”
Julian stomped back into the
The next day he gathered together a large group of people to show his power and bring back his glory with the people. In the sight of crowds standing around and listening he ordered the high strata of the sky to lift him up during his ascension into heaven. World wide television followed him.
With arms raised up he ascended up to the heavens and disappeared in the distance. Cameras kept glued to the empty sky but nothing more. Silence engulfed the world waiting for something to happen. Ten minutes passed by but still nothing.
Suddenly a spot was seen where Julian had disappeared. The spot took on the looks of a comet as fire
started coming out from it. It was
coming right at the
Julian was burning and falling. He crashed right dead centre of the Altar of Sacrifice cracking in two the iron frame of the Altar but it stood in place without caving in. The sound of the crash was like thunder and then there was a great silence. The cameras were glued on the Altar. Then moving closer to look into the Altar, the cameras saw the flames of the fire slowly become smaller and smaller until they went out. Left was a face down burnt and nude body completely black and burnt. The total body looked like a large black worm so distorted that it hardly resembled a human person. Silence all over the world lasted a long time.
Then someone said: “It is over. The persecution is over. We are free of him and the persecution.” He was right and soon everyone started to rejoice and hug each other. Some went down on their knees and gave thanks to God and others danced in the streets.
At that moment a small cloud came over
The End of the World
The rain fell throughout the world and on
Throughout the world, people were rejoicing, dancing and feasting. Those who could not marry during the time of the Antichrist called priests to come and marry them. The Holy Mass came back into the open and many went daily to the Sacrifice of Calvary. Those who had the mark of the beast on their right hands and forehead did not come back to the sacraments but despaired of forgiveness and seemed to lack in grace. Sorrow engulfed them and they could not rejoice. Everyone believed that peace had returned to the earth. They went back to a normal life but with almost daily merrymaking.
On the 45th day after the death of the Antichrist the sky was blue with scattered white clouds drifting slowly around. It was calm and beautiful. But slowly the sky parted like a zipper and a pure white light came forth from a line in the sky from the Eastern horizon to directly above everyone’s head.
Everyone on earth turned their eyes to the sky and calmly looked at the strange sight. As the opening spread their appeared a large cross of pure white light and on the cross was Christ Crucified also in pure white light. For over an hour everyone on the face of the earth could see him but no one said a word. They just looked at Him with wonder at what they were seeing. After the hour Christ came off the cross and changed into a robed and glorified Christ.
He lifted up His hand towards the earth. Suddenly in the twinkling of an eye half the people on the earth disappeared. People who were standing together suddenly were standing alone. One disappeared and the other remained standing. All over the world over a hundred million people disappeared and a hundred million remained. All who had the mark of the beast disappeared.
Fear and wonder attacked those remained on earth and they looked up to the sky again. Christ again raised his right hand with His palm up and motioned to come. Suddenly the people on earth could see hundreds of millions of bodies come up out of the ground ascending to the sky. In the sky they could see the bodies and souls meet and fuse together continuing past Christ into the heavens.
Again Christ pointed towards the earth and bodies and souls came up out from the centre of the earth and past Christ into the heavens. The people on earth wondered at this site but were not afraid.
Christ looked down at all the people left on earth. He held out both arms towards them and they started lifting off the ground. Slowly everyone left on earth rose towards Christ body and soul. Peter II was the first to reach Christ and gathered the rest with him and they all floated past Christ into the upper heavens. As they lifted up they gradually changed into transparent many colored bright and beautiful light.
When all were gone into the Heavens Christ waved His hand and arm in a sweeping motion and the earth burst into a ball of fire just like the sun. He waved His hand again across the sky and every star in the heavens disappeared including the earth, moon and sun.
This is His Second Coming.
He then ascended to the upper heaven. Trillions of people and angels awaited Him. Again He waved His hand and the entire Heavenly Jerusalem changed from a pure spiritual sphere to a physical and spiritual Kingdom with both physical and spiritual beings and things.
There Christ rained with His people in the New Heaven and New Earth forever and ever, amen.
