“The Monstrance of Our Lady of the Sign, Ark of Mercy” (photo below) is an icon receptacle that holds the Eucharist (the large white round wafer at the center of the monstrance) for Roman Catholics to worship.

 

The Monstrance of Our Lady of the Sign, Ark of Mercy

The 9 foot tall, 900 pound, gilt-wood monstrance is billed as the largest in the world. Stefan Niedorezo was commissioned to sculpt it according to the ‘Woman arrayed with the Sun’ from the Book of Revelation.

Niedorezo’s design has the Virgin Mary surrounded by rays and a crown of thorns, flanked by angels, and sitting on the Ark of the Covenant.

The monstrance belongs to St. Stanislaus Kostka Church/the Sanctuary of The Divine Mercy in Chicago, Illinois.

Consider for a moment what the Roman Catholic Church has done here.

For starters the monstrance suggests that the Roman Catholic Church has replaced Judaism’s sacred symbols and Israel in God’s plan.

Then as Revelation’s “Woman arrayed with the Sun,” Rome’s Mary has usurped and displaced Israel’s twelve tribes.

Her crown of thorns has usurped and displaced the Lord Jesus, and her sitting on the Mercy Seat atop the Ark of the  Covenant between the Cherubim has usurped and displaced God.

“These two women ‘Mary and the Church’ carry on the hope that is Christ, they give us Christ, they bring forth Christ in us. Without Mary, there would be no Jesus Christ; without the Church, we cannot go forward.” Pope Francis, speaking to mark the occasion of the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows in Casa Santa Marta

Mary is not the Queen of Heaven. She has no divine power. She neither hears nor answers prayers, and sends no grace. She does nothing.

The Monstrance of Our Lady of the Sign, Ark of Mercy steals glory from God the Father, from God the Son, and from God the Holy Spirit.

“I am the Lord: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.” Isaiah 42:8 KJV

Pastor Jesse Lee Peterson interviews Pastor Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church.

Peterson and Anderson discuss whether a person can be born again of God and still sin. Peterson asks Anderson if the flesh is stronger than the Spirit, and is that the reason people sin.

Anderson tells Peterson that he hates homosexuals because they are reprobates who hate God. Anderson quotes from Romans Chapter 1 to support his claim that homosexuality is the only sin that shows hatred for God. 

It’s obvious Peterson clearly doesn’t understand Scripture, and although Anderson makes some valid points from the Scripture, both men are unregenerate Christians.

According to Scripture, Anderson is wrong to say that all homosexuals are reprobates. It’s true that many are, but Paul writes in 1Corinthians 6:9-11 that some in the church at Corinth were once homosexuals and have been washed, sanctified, and justified by the Spirit of God.

To be reprobate means rejected of God and eternally damned. Reprobates have been abandoned to their sinful nature and have no hope of salvation. Scripture clearly teaches that some homosexuals have been saved, which means that not all homosexuals have been given over to a reprobate mind.

The interview begins at the 2:08.03 mark and ends at the 2:31.03 mark.

Some unregenerate Christians insist on the importance of having a personal relationship with Christ. They seem to forget that Judas had a personal relationship with Christ.

The example of Judas teaches that one may be a disciple of Christ, a worker of miracles, a doer of good deeds, and an evangelist, but still be an unbeliever and go to Hell.

Until he betrayed Christ, to all the disciples, Judas led the sort of life that the faith-plus-works (Lordship salvation) teachers say distinguishes a true believer from a false believer.

“Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.” Romans 4:4-8 KJV

Peace.
