This inverted cross image comes from, BloodWulfs Book : ChaosLord . Here is an excerpt from some of the "poetry" found on this page--

Experience the nightmare of my desire.
The stars glisten with my blood.
I call unto you.
I deny your faith.
Live in the face of emptiness, yet
You survive the details.
I embrace your desire,
And elevate violence to a sacred deed.
You equip for immortality:
I reap your soul for eternity

The following definition comes from the book, "Brave New Schools" by Berit Kjos--

INVERTED CROSS: Represents Satanism and its mockery of Christ.

The following excerpt came from the Ozzy Osbourne Biography/FAQ (3/2000)

The record company chose to put an upside down cross on the gatefold of the album and thus people readily associated the band (Black Sabbath) with Satanism. The band knew nothing about this and did not want the upside down cross, however they backed down from the record company's "wiser and higher" marketing methods.

The Esoteric Symbol Library says: "The inverted pentagram is generally a symbol of evil (in much the same way that the inverted cross is)... "

In his article, The Kingdom of Satan, Professor J.S. Malan says this about the inverted cross:

4.7 Opposition against the cross of Jesus and the Christian church

The kingdom of darkness is fanatically opposed to the church of Jesus Christ and tries to question, discourage, deceive, infiltrate, oppress, forbid, or destroy it in every possible way. Some of the symbols that they use in this campaign are the following:

The inverted cross This cross is not broken, but turned upside down. It indicates the rejection of Jesus Christ and contempt for the gospel of salvation. Inverted symbols are typical of the opposite values pursued by Satanists. People who are sometimes sacrificed to Satan on Black Sabbath are crucified upside down in accordance with this tradition.

[Editor's note: I've come across worse items showing the inverted cross but could not bring myself to even present the titles here. Ephesians 5:12]

Having established the Satanic nature of the inverted (upside down) cross, please view the following picture. This picture was captured from television by one of our readers utilizing a wintv capture card on 3-23-00 or 3-24-00.

The reader who took this picture says,

"....The pope got off his death bed for this event..that upside down cross is a message to every single freemason/satanist/Lucifer worshipping....freak...that the show is on....Satan has been welcomed into the Holy land.....get ready for a false prophet!"

The above photo was not doctored. The following picture was found on the CNN website.

The following picture was found on the Time website. What is interesting about this picture is that even within the picture you can still distinctly see the inverted cross.

The following picture was found on the CBS website.

The CBS caption says,

"The pope sits on the altar at Korazim. The backdrop depicts Christ with an open book that reads, 'Love your enemies, I will come soon.' "

Yes, the Beast of Revelation chapter 13 and his false prophet are going to manifest for the final showdown very soon. But what does the pope mean when he talks about his enemies? WHO are the supposed enemies of the Catholic Christ, of the anti-Christ?

Bible-believing Christians that know the true Christ, the Christ of the Bible.
They expose Satan and his antichrist.

Papistry has been killing Bible-believing Christians for centuries. According to Jacob Primer, in "Pastor Jacob Primmer in Rome" p. 215 upside down crucifixion is one of the tortures they used on our forefathers during the Inquisition (the picture at left was taken from the book "Pastor Jacob Primmer in Rome", sixth edition, 1912, Dunfermline Citizen office. In the next segment of the slideshow there is a picture of various inquisition tortures which include another upside down crucifixion. Inverted crucifixion is also pictured and mentioned in Samuel Clarke's Martyrology circa 1651). In this context, the pope's inverted cross means "Death to all who oppose Rome!"

As Horace Greeley said, "It is impossible to mentally or socially enslave a Bible reading people." Bible believers will NEVER fit in with a Luciferian New World Order since Christ is our King and the Bible our only creed. In order to innoculate deceived Catholics from receiving the gospel, high level papists devise a number of mind control techniques including the use of propaganda...

A Roman Catholic pamphlet entitled, "A Pastoral Statement For Catholics On Biblical Fundamentalism," is a warning from Catholic Bishops to Catholics "who may be attracted to Biblical Fundamentalism without realizing its serious weaknesses." It criticizes Fundamentalists for "rigid doctrinal and ideological positions" and for interpreting the Bible to be literally true. It says: "We do not look upon the Bible as an authority for science or history." And: "The gospel comes to us through the Spirit-guided Tradition of the [Catholic] Church and the inspired books. ... The Church produced the New Testament, not vice versa." It said Fundamentalists "try to find in the Bible all the direct answers for living. ... We look to both the Church's official teaching (or magisterium) AND [our emphasis] Scripture for guidance in addressing life's problems." The pamphlet emphasizes the necessity of the seven sacraments, the "veneration of the Blessed Mother," etc. (4/1/95, Calvary Contender).

Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
