Not only have seven whole books been deleted from Protestant Bibles, but parts of two others (Daniel and Esther) have been deleted as well.
In this post, we look at a very revealing verse in one of the six chapters of Esther missing from Protestant Bibles.
As I was reading these chapters recently, this verse jumped out at me:
Then they [Israel] cried out to God, and from their crying there arose, as though from a tiny spring, a mighty river, a flood of water. The light of the sun broke forth; the lowly were exalted and they devoured the boastful. ~ Esther, Chapter A, Verse 9
That verse from the Catholic Bible is not in Protestant Bibles, which is tragic because that verse is clearly a reference to Revelation 12:15-16, which remains in the Protestant Bible.
Then from his mouth the serpent [Satan] spewed water like a river, to overtake the woman and sweep her away with the torrent. But the earth helped the woman by opening its mouth and swallowing the river that the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. ~ Revelation 12:15-16, New International Version (NIV) of the Protestant Bible
So the serpent [Satan] spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. ~ Revelation 12:15-16, New King James Version (NKJV) of the Protestant Bible
Armies As Floods
River, water, torrent, and flood are Biblical themes for human armies. (This principle is not to be applied in a strictly thematic sense. Noah’s flood was an actual flood, not a human army. But when Jesus calms the raging waters in Luke 8:24, it means that he calmed an actual body of water during a storm, and that he will calm the raging Antichrist nations when he returns. Isaiah Chapter 8 gives a vivid example of the Bible’s sometime use of flood as a literary device for human armies
Therefore the Lord is about to bring against them the mighty floodwaters of the River— the king of Assyria with all his pomp [The King of Assyria and his army are described as the “mighty floodwaters of the river.”]. It [the King of Assyria’s army] will overflow all its channels, run over all its banks and sweep on into Judah, swirling over it, passing through it and reaching up to the neck. ~ Isaiah 8:7-8)
So, Revelation 12:15-16 foretells of a flood (human army) sent by Satan against Israel. But Esther A:9 (which is missing from Protestant Bibles) foretells of a flood (a counter-army of humans) sent by God to defend Israel! That will be World War III, and we have World War II as a historical template for it. In World War II, Satan sent Germany against the Jews and the Vatican, and God sent America against Germany. In World War III, I believe Satan will send Turkey against Israel and the Vatican, and God will send America against Turkey.
Seeing that God’s human army will intervene to counter Satan’s human army is crucial because the popular view in Evangelicalism is that the Antichrist succeeds in taking over the entire world. God did not grant the forces of evil a worldwide takeover at Babel, or Nazi Germany, or anywhere else in human history. God will never allow the forces of evil to accomplish a worldwide takeover. It is to counter such a takeover that God created nations, and borders, and separated the continents, and caused people to speak different languages, and caused nationalistic patriotism to beat through the hearts of Americans.
There will be no globalism until Christ returns, despite the Left’s best efforts. Thank God for Donald Trump!
Now About That Woman
The woman who Satan tries to “overtake” in Revelation 12 represents four different entities– Israel, Mary, the Church, and Eve. Satan’s flood will aim to destroy Israel and the Church. But God will send a counter-flood to destroy Satan’s forces. I have written much on this website about the fact that America saved the Jews in World War II. But what I could not see when I wrote those articles (because I was Protestant at the time) was that America also saved the Vatican in World War II.
Up To The Neck
At one point, German troops actually surrounded the Vatican. But the mighty USA smashed Germany, saving the Jewish people and the Vatican from certain annihilation. I believe that in World War III, Israel and the Vatican will once again be within an inch of their lives, and then God will take action. And whereas in World War II the primary antagonist was Germany, in World War III the primary antagonist will be Turkey.
Regarding God waiting until the last minute before he saves, remember that in the Exodus God waited until the Israelites were hopelessly trapped between the Egyptian Army and the Red Sea before He parted the waters and saved Israel. Accomplishing the miraculous shows God to be God. In the verses I mentioned above as my example of the Biblical theme of floods as armies, we see another example of God withholding salvation from His Chosen People until the last minute.
It [the floodwaters, the King of Assyria’s army] will overflow all its channels, run over all its banks and sweep on into Judah, swirling over it, passing through it and reaching up to the neck. ~ Isaiah 8:7-8
Up to the neck. God often withholds salvation until the last minute in order to demonstrate the miraculous, and to use man’s fear as refining fire that turns man toward God. To wit, I believe Satan’s flood will rise to the neck of Israel and the Vatican before God unleashes the saving flood foretold in Esther A:9, and unleash it He will!
In the chapters of Esther deleted from Protestant Bibles, I saw that which Protestant pastors told me did not exist– congruence with the rest of the Bible. I have noticed this congruence in all the books deleted from the Protestant Bible. These books clearly refer to parts of the Protestant Bible that were not deleted, and parts of the Protestant Bible that were not deleted clearly refer to the parts that were deleted. In my years of Protestantism, I did not know a single Protestant (that I was aware of, including myself) who believed that these books should be included in the Bible, but I also did not know a single Protestant (that I was aware of, including myself) who could explain why.
These books are gone because of their Jewishness, and because of the Catholic theology they contain. Martin Luther was both antisemitic, and anti-Catholic.
The Bible is always proven true, even the parts deleted from Protestant Bibles.
