Those islands you mentioned in your post ---VERY interesting--- they are referred to as:

Bridegroom Island
Bride Island
Go-between Island (our great INTERCESSOR!?)
Northern Island (He comes from the empty space over the NORTH!?)
Father Island (the Ancient of Days?!)
Elder Brother Island (Jesus is OUR Elder Brother!)
Younger Brother Island (Holy Spirit?)
Mother Island (New Jerusalem is the Mother of us all)
Elder Sister Island (Old Testament saints?)
Younger Sister Island (New Testament saints?)

I live in Riverside, CA, USA. The San Andreas Fault is not far from me. We feel many earthquakes. To me, anything 6.0 and up is huge. Of course, the depth makes a big difference.

My husband was stationed in New Caledonia during WW II. He loved the clear ocean water around there. You could see the bottom easily. By way of contrast, he hated the ocean water at Redondo Beach, CA. It seemed dirty to him.

I hope all is well and that you and yours enjoyed a blessed Christmas. A friend forwarded this to me. It is fascinating. Agape

My reply

To celebrate Christmas, some of our family, and a few of their friends had dinner here Sunday. I had carved and trimmed the ham ahead of time, and I got the sweet potatoes ready for the oven. Bless their hearts, Dave's daughter bought the Cokes, and she and a couple of her friends cooked the dinner for us.

Thank you so much for everything, and for sending this. I found this very interesting too. I'm only half way through.

I had to spend the day trying to find the name of the contractor that "fixed" the roof the last time we refinanced. Haven't found it yet. He made a little leak much worse. Dave is afraid the ceiling will come down on his drums. He has them covered with plastic.

My comments on the interesting document at: http://www.remnantofgod.org/pope1.htm

Before I comment on "THE FIRST REAL POPE," here is the main scripture dealing with a man called Simon, known elsewhere as Simon Magus, not the apostle Simon Barjona, whom the Lord named Peter.

Acts 8:9-23 says, "But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one: To whom they (the Samaritans) all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God. And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries. But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done. Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John: Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost: (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.) Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost."

Continuing, "And when Simon (probably Simon Magus) saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money, Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost. But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. THOU HAST NEITHER PART NOR LOT IN THIS MATTER: FOR THY HEART IS NOT RIGHT IN THE SIGHT OF GOD. Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee. For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity."

> > HE [Simon Magnus] CAME TO ROME in the days of Claudius Caesar (45 A.D.), and made such an impression by his magical powers, that HE WAS HONORED AS A GOD, a statue being erected to him on the Tiber, between the two bridges, bearing the inscription ‘Simoni deo Sancto’ (i.e., the holy god Simon)...[emphasis mine]

> > What is the link that I hope to show with Simon Magus and the title of Peter? That SIMON MAGUS WAS CALLED SIMON PETER“ Simon the self proclaimed God”, after HE MOVED TO ROME AND SETUP A FALSE UNIVERSAL RELIGION with himself as the head of that church. I believe that it would be safe to say that SIMON MAGUS IS THE SIMON PETER OF ROME THAT IS CALLED THE FIRST POPE OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH and not the apostle Simon Peter of The Bible.

> > They (things he already quoted) say that the Simon Magus “Peter” who proclaimed to be a false Messiah “God” with the cover of Christianity to set up a Universal “catholic” church. THIS IS THE CATHOLIC FIRST POPE AND THE BEGINNING OF THE CHURCH OF BABYLON that has affected history. Paul saw this also “2 Thess. 2:7-1O, "...the mystery of iniquity doth already at work...

> > The main point that I hope to bring your attention is evidence that all points to the rise of the false church and that Simon Magus was the head of that church.

For background, Mt 16:15-18 says, "He (Jesus) saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, THOU ART THE CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter (petros, a piece of rock), and upon this rock (petra, a mass of rock, i.e., his saying who Jesus is, not Peter) I will build my CHURCH; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."

Keep in mind that the wise-virgin Philadelphian members of the Church will be caught up in the First-Trump Rapture of I Thess. 4:16,17 and that the foolish-virgin Laodicean members along with new converts will be caught up in the Last-Trump Rapture of I Cor 15:51-54 as the Day of God's Wrath begins (Rev. 6:17; 7:14). There will be members of the Church in both groups.

In the beginning of the Great Tribulation, the last half of the 7th week of Daniel, when the False Prophet will sit in the Temple as if he is God, the Messianic Jews left in Jerusalem will flee to the rose-red rock city of Petra.

This part of the Church is seen in Rev 12:17, "And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, AND HAVE THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS CHRIST."

1Cor 12:13 says, "For by one Spirit are we all baptized into ONE BODY, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit."

Rev 2:18-22 says, "And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass; I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first. Notwithstanding I HAVE A FEW THINGS AGAINST THEE, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. And I gave her space to repent of her fornication (joining); and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery (i.e., join) with her INTO GREAT TRIBULATION (i.e., the last half of the 70th week of Daniel), except they repent of their deeds."

The 144,000 Jews of Rev 7 will, along with the foolish virgins, be caught up to Heaven in the Last-Trump Rapture that takes place early on the Day of God's Wrath (Rev 6:17; 7:1-14).

Rev 7:9 says, "AFTER THIS (i.e., after the Day of God's Wrath had started in 6:17, and after the 144,000 were sealed in Rev 7:1-8) I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, OF ALL NATIONS, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, STOOD BEFORE THE THRONE (i.e., having just been caught up in the Last-Trump Rapture), and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands".

> > Simon Magus Blends Paganism With Christianity!

> > What Simon did was to bring the Babylonian and Greek religious beliefs into a form of Christianity in order to bring about, as Harnack says, a UNIVERSAL [Catholic] religion.

This church is the one Jesus spoke of as the church of Thyatira. However, of this church, Jesus also said, "Rev 2:24-28 says, "But unto you I say, and UNTO THE REST IN THYATIRA, as many as have not this doctrine, and WHICH HAVE NOT KNOWN THE DEPTHS OF SATAN, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden. But that which ye have already hold fast till I come. And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. And I will give him the morning star."

The morning star represents both Christ and Heaven, where his throne is located (Eze 1:1,26-28). This is the third heaven, the one Paul was caught up to in II Cor. 12:2-4, Mars, Jupiter, then the third heaven, Saturn.

Concerning Saturn being Heaven, Eze 1:1 says, "the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God."

Eze 1:26-28 says, "And above the firmament (expanse of space) that was over their heads (i.e., farther out in space than the 4 terrestrial planets, including Earth (Eze. 1:15) was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone (sapphire means dear to the planet Saturn, from the Sanskrit Sani, Saturn, and priya, dear): and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it. And I saw as the colour of amber (Saturn has amber on it), as the appearance of fire round about within it (it has golden clouds and gives off more heat then it receives from the Sun), from the appearance of his loins (from the equator) even upward, and from the appearance of his loins (from the equator) even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about (i.e., that's Saturn's ring system). As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD." Saturn's ring system is like a halo.

> > We further find in Schaff’s History of the Church a reference to this Simon Magus. He says: "The author, or first representative of this baptized HEATHENISM, according to the uniform testimony of Christian antiquity, is Simon Magus, who unquestionably adulterated Christianity with pagan ideas and practices, and gave himself out, in a pantheistic style for an emanation of God" (Apostolic Christianity), Vol. 2, p. 566).

> > Simon only used the name of Christianity to bring about his own desired ends. The Dictionary of Religion and Ethics says that Simon was "a false Messiah, who practiced magical arts and subsequently attempted, by the aid and with the sanction of Christianity, to set up a rival UNIVERSAL [Catholic] RELIGION" (Vol. 11, p. 514)....

> > Who History Says This Simon Became

> > When Justin Martyr wrote [152 A.D.] his Apology, the sect of the Simonians appears to have been formidable, for he speaks four times of their founder, Simon; and we need not doubt that he identified him with the Simon of the Acts. He states that he was a Samaritan, adding that his birthplace was a village called Gitta; he describes him as a formidable magician, and tells that he came to ROME in the days of Claudius Caesar (45 A.D.), and made such an impression by his magical powers, THAT HE WAS HONORED AS A GOD, a statue being erected to him on the Tiber, between the two bridges, bearing the inscription ‘Simoni deo Sancto’ (i.e., the holy god Simon)" (Dictionary of Christian Biography, Vol. 4, p. 682)....

> > It was NOT Simon Peter who went to Rome to become Apostle to the Gentiles, but the SIMON in Rome was SIMON MAGUS!...

> > Simon Peter was NOT in Rome. It was another Simon who went there -- SIMON MAGUS, the one bringing "Christianity" to them in the guise of the old Babylonian mystery religions. Simon came to Rome with the grand idea of stablishing a UNIVERSAL RELIGION in the NAME of Christianity! And what is remarkable, he did just that!

> > Next, we will see how Simon Magus became later confused with Simon Peter and how he cleverly brought into "Christianity" the MYSTERY RELIGIONS OF BABYLON."

Rev 17:5-11 says of a woman (i.e., of a religious group), 5 "And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 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. 7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast (the great red dragon) that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. 8 The beast (i.e., Satan) that thou sawest was (in Judas Iscariot), and is not (in man now); and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit (see Rev. 9), and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is (exists). 9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains (kingdoms: Babel, Babylon II, Media-Persia, Greece, Holy Roman Empire, Ecclesiastical Roman Empire, and Babylon III), on which the woman sitteth. 10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen (the empires are Babel, Babylon II, Medo-Persia, Greece and the Holy Roman Empire), and one is (Ecclesiastical Roman Empire), and the other (Babylon III, empire of the False Prophet) is not yet come; and when he cometh, he (the False Prophet) must continue a short space. 11 And the beast (Satan) that was (in Judas Iscariot, the first son of perdition), and is not (in man now), even he (Satan) is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition" (enters into the False Prophet, the second and last son of perdition).

> > PAUL Established Only TRUE Church at Rome

> > PROOF THREE: We are told by Paul himself that it was he -- not Peter –who was going to officially found the Roman Church. "I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end ye may be ESTABLISHED" (Rom. 1:11)."...

> > Later in about 66 A.D., we find him in the city of Babylon among the Jews (I Pet. 5:13). Remember that Peter was the Apostle to the CIRCUMCISED. Why was he in Babylon? Because history shows that there were as many Jews in the Mesopotamian areas in Christ’s time as there were in Palestine."

More reasons Peter was not in Rome are given in the article, which I think you will want to read.
