For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.
For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
1 Cor 1:17-18
For Christians world over and ages past the Cross has been employed as the symbol of Christianity. However many of them are not away that symbol was hijacked by Satan and is now not preached but worshiped and present on national flags and used as a symbol of conquest in the name of God.
What did the early church do with the cross ?
THE CROSS OF CHRIST and THE EARLY CHURCH
Crosses have been used by Pagan cultures as structures of worship .In fact one needs not to go far as Moses made a bronze snake that was hung on a cross from which the people received healing .Yet God did not call them to worship the snake and later on one King of Israel had to destroy it since it became an object of worship.
When Jesus ministered on the earth he taught that those who wanted to follow him had to daily carry their cross and follow him.
He later confirmed what the prophets had prophesied, of a man who would die for the people and would be pierced on his side, hands and feet, by dying on the cross on Wednesday Nisan 14.Three days later he rose again.
After his ascension he filled his disciples with the Holy Spirit who preached about him crucified and resurrected and coming back again and how all should repent and believe in him
Paul makes this clear when he explains how he was persecuted for preaching the CROSS OF CHRIST.
He later says how he would only glory in the CROSS of Christ as it is in the cross that Christ Jesus triumphed over principalities and powers .
When we preach it we are preaching about sacrifice and triumph over sin , Satan and the world and reconciliation, forgiveness and the Love of God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
None of the early church disciples and believers made crosses as objects of worship. They knew that was idolatry and God banned the making of graven images for worship in his holy commandments.
TO CHRIST’S CHURCH PREACHING OF THE CROSS IS THE POWER OF GOD ;
CONSTANTINE’S CHURCH(ANTI-CHRIST CHURCH) CARRIES CONSTANTINE ‘S CROSS , THE POWER OF SATAN
Around the second century many Christians were missing their pagan ways and thus decided to Christianize their pagan items. One item was the cross which was already a pagan structure in many religions of the world.
“Crosses, moreover, we Christians neither venerate nor wish for. You indeed who consecrate gods of wood venerate wooden crosses, perhaps as parts of your gods. For your very standards, as well as your banners, and flags of your camps, what are they but crosses gilded and adorned? Your victorious trophies not only imitate the appearance of a simple cross,but also that of a man affixed to it”
This came to pass through Constantine that worshiped the Cross for Political Militant Power .After having a vision of the Cross above the sun and an order to conquer with that sign, Constantine put that sign on his armies flags ( standards).
EVERY FLAG HAS A CROSS MEANS EVERY FLAG HAS A RELIGION ATTACHED TO IT
Constantine who, with his Sun god religion and holidays of the Sun god, created the Roman Catholic Church which carried forward his tradition of worshiping the cross for political and economic power also to Protestant and Evangelical churches.
One cannot forget Hitler’s Germany that had their cross and flag .Most flags in the world are religious symbols of militant power both in Western and Islamic and Non Western nations.
The Cross was now not about forgiveness of sins , it was about Gaining the whole world through Conquest and Dominion. Instead of waiting for Jesus to set up his kingdom , they set it up for him-BLASPHEMY.
The Catholic Church created armies of knights whose job was to guard pilgrims who traveled to the Holy Land .However as the Church changed its eschatological theology of waiting for Jesus to gaining for Jesus ,they went on to conquer the Holy Land.This is where you get the Knights of Templar, Malta, Hospitaller all of which are now Freemasonry ,Illuminati.
The Crusades were born .Crusades are religiously sanctioned military expeditions. The word comes from the word crux , cross .Islamic Jihad is the Islamic version of Catholic/Christian Crusade .The Crusade motto of both entities must be “if you can’t beat them, kill them”
The Pope sent the Knights to kill unbelievers and fight for Jerusalem in the name of God. Each nation of knights had its colour. European countries made up the nations of knights of the Pope.
British Knights – St George’s Cross— Red Cross , White Background
French Knights – White Cross on Dark Blue Background
Italian Knights- Vatican’s Cross —Yellow Cross White Background
Scottish/Greek Knights—St Andrew’s Cross – White Cross, Blue Background
Where are those crosses found in the Bible ? Where is the word crusade in the bible ?
The Union Jack is made up of flags of Catholic Saints , who were given Catholic Crosses which led to Catholic Crusades
CROSSES MEAN CRUSADES as SWORDS MEAN CROSSES..THE POPE’S CRUSADES, THE TEMPORAL /EARTHLY SWORD
When you take a look at the flags of the above mentioned countries you find that the British flag bears three crosses which basically means three swords. These Crosses colors- blue red and white are all over all Western British Colonies such as America New Zealand .
So many think that their countries colors are about the American War of Independence, when actually those flags and their colors are nothing but colors of the Knights of the Roman Catholic Crusades/Cross.
FLAGS ARE INSTRUMENTS OF WAR AND SYMBOLS OF POWER ; MOST WESTERN FLAGS ARE JUST CROSSES DEPICTING THE CATHOLIC CRUSADES WHILE ISLAMIC FLAGS EITHER HAVE GREEN THE COLOUR OF JIHAD OR THE MOON OR STAR
Flags have always been symbols of domination , identification and war .The Pope is the Patriarch of the West and most of Western countries have Crosses or the colors of the crosses which are nothing but the Crusading Knights banners.
I do not like Gaddafi’ s diabolical presidency but he is right when he says that the Western nations are Crusaders. The question you need to answer is whose Crusade ? The answer is the Antichrist entities of Papal Monarchs , British and European Monarchs and Islamic Monarchs who will come against the Monarchy of Jesus Christ. BTW America is a puppet of the British and Papal Monarchs.
