Revelation 12:1: And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
Revelation 21:10: And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, 21:11: Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; 21:12: And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: 21:13: On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. 21:14: And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
Revelation 17:3: So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 17:4: And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: 17:5: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 17:6: And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
17:9: And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. 17:18: And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
The Saints of God whose citizenship is not of this earth, but is heavenly in Christ Jesus.
We have no earthly citizenship. We walk in Spirit and Truth through Faith.
Hebrews 9:28: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.
Christ was offered once to bear sins. He shall not appear again until he returns on the clouds of heaven.
Hebrews 10:11-18: And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before, This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.
Hebrews 10:26: For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins
One can go through all the teachings of the priests of Rome, but are never saved! Rome teaches ceremonial cleanness and blatant worshipping of "BREAD AS SAVIOR" in place of Christ.
Jesus Christ was hung on a cross and left to die an unimaginably horrific death because of our sins. If anyone believes that the eucharist is in any fashion an acceptable sacrifice before God, this is to blaspheme God's gift of redemption in the highest degree.
Jesus Christ is at the Right Hand of the Power of God in Heaven waiting for you to ask him to come into your life and heart as savior, and he will send his Holy Spirit to lead you out from the bondage of sin.
Your citizenship will be heavenly in Christ Jesus, not bound in the city of Rome!
The Roman Catholic (Universal) Church has made all nations drink of the wine of of her fornication.
All Roman Catholic converts become members of this earthly city Rome, hence they are "Roman Catholics".
Christian Initiation is Roman Citizenship!
980 . . . "This sacrament of Penance is necessary for salvation for those who have fallen after baptism, just as baptism is necessary for salvation for those who have not yet been reborn.
. . . "The Fathers of the Church present this sacrament as 'the second plank (of salvation) after the shipwreck which is the loss of grace.'"
BEHOLD YOUR GOD WHO SAVES YOU: EUCHARIST!
"'In this divine sacrifice which is celebrated in the Mass, the same Christ who offered himself once in a bloody manner on the altar of the cross is contained and is offered in an unbloody manner.'" 1414 "As sacrifice, the Eucharist is also offered in reparation for the sins of the living and the dead and to obtain spiritual or temporal benefits from God. "
CANON V.-If any one saith, either that the principal fruit of the most holy Eucharist is the remission of sins, or, that other effects do not result therefrom; let him be anathema [accursed].
CANON VI.-If any one saith, that, in the holy sacrament of the Eucharist, Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, is not to be adored with the worship, even external of latria; and is, consequently, neither to be venerated with a special festive solemnity, nor to be solemnly borne about in processions according to the laudable and universal rite and custom of holy church; or, is not to be proposed publicly to the people to be adored, and that the adorers thereof are idolators; let him be anathema [accursed].
Rome says the bread is God! and that he is to be worshipped in the form of bread!
The Pope places the bread into a golden monstrance and parades him around for worship!
The Priests of Rome have set up "another" Jesus to worship!
