Prophet TV is seeking to go to Rome. However, what makes Rome important?
Rome is the centre of the Catholic Church. In the centre of the city of Rome is Vatican City. The Vatican is an independent nation state and is home to the Pope. This is where all the major decisions are made as to the direction of the Rome Catholic Church. Catholic’s believe the Pope to be God’s representative on earth, and follow his every word- what the Pope says and does influences 1.1 Billion people world wide. Therefore the ruling spirit over the Vatican is very important. Although Catholics believe in Jesus, there is a powerful dragon over the Catholic Church, which controls the people through religion. As God has taught through Prophet TV, you go for the source, when dealing with the demonic- and in the case of the Catholic church that is Rome.
The Vatican city was built on the location believed to be where the apostle Peter was crucified. It was also the location of Emperor Nero’s circus. Nero was basically mad! He burnt Rome, to give himself an excuse to persecute the church, his persecution was the first major state organised persecution of the church. His circus was where many Christians died and were thrown to the lions.
In the centre of the Vatican is St. Peter’s Square- where the Pope gives all his grand sermons in front of mass crowds. In the centre is a large Egyptian obelisk. This was originally built in the Egyptian city of Heliopolis, and was moved to Rome by the Emperor Caligula (12-41 AD).
One of the major issues facing the Catholic Church is celibacy laws. God has made us with sexual hormones and instituted marriage has the correct and righteous way for a man and a woman to enjoy intercourse. However, for Catholic Priests, and Nuns struggling to control these natural desires the enemy has been able to gain access to their lives and perversions have taken root within the Catholic church- the worst of these being the recent pedophile scandals. There is no real biblical reason not to allow marriage, so why are these celibacy laws in place? Up until the 12 century priests were allowed to marry. However, because of the medieval feudal system property, wealth and title were always passed father to son. So the Catholic church was losing vast sums of money, and land to the sons of its priests, and the sons were automatically made priests- regardless of education or “moral credentials”! Therefore the way they found to stop this was making celibacy laws! Basically it was all about the money!
Prophet TV has been teaching that when we open a door to the demonic, i.e through sin, that demon has access to us, and we need to be delivered. As with a man so with a city. So the centuries of undealt with sin in the Vatican City have allowed powerful principalities to gain access. Much blood has been spilled through the Vatican, as many of the Pope’s were ruthless, brutal murderers gaining power via corruption and killing their rivals- especially in the Middle Ages. Not hard to believe, since the Pope was the most powerful man in Europe. It is also apparent that the sexual scandals which have been exposed in recent years are no stranger the the Catholic church, past Popes would entertain “boys”, engaged in homosexuality, and many frequented prostitutes. One Pope was said to have made the Vatican like a “whorehouse”.
Rome is a city that has global influence. The enemy knows this- he has targeted the Vatican for centuries. Only a Son of God has the authority to take down the dragon, and allow the Presence of God to come into a region to influence the thoughts of men.
