HOW ROME BECAME THE HEADQUARTERS of the FALSE JESUS and his CHRISTIANITY RELIGION
A question asked frequently is, how did Rome become the headquarters of Christianity religion instead of Jerusalem where Yeshua began his ministry? In truth, if there were any place on earth that was supposed to be called the “church headquarters,” it would be Jerusalem not Rome! But this is how it happened, according to the testimony of Justin Martyr (The First Apology-chapter 26: Magicians not trusted by Christians), when the people of Samaria received the true Gospel of Yeshua, Simon Magus relocated his headquarters to Rome with his disciples Helena and Menander. When they arrived in Rome, the Romans received him as the original incarnate of God and bought into his arcane philosophies, which were comprised of many religious ideas. The false Christianity of Simon Magus had a little flavor of the Mosaic Law, Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, Zoroastrianism, Mithraism, Voodoo-ism and many other religious beliefs mixed together; this is clear in the writing of Irenaeus
Now this Simon of Samaria, from whom all sorts of heresies derive their origin, formed his sect out of the following materials (IRENAEUS ADVERSUS HAERESES, BOOK 1, CHAPTER 23, VERSES 1-5, EXCERPTED FROM ANTE-NICENE FATHERS, VOLUME 1)
After that the people in Rome received Magus as a great god, they erected his image as an object of worship;
You install Simon Magus in your pantheon, giving him a statue and the title of holy God. Tertullian (c. 197, W), 3. 259.
The Samaritan Simon and Menander, did many mighty works by magic and deceived many. They remained deceived. Even among yourselves (the Romans), as I said before, Simon was in the royal city of Rome in the reign of Claudius Caesar, He so greatly astonished the sacred senate and the Roman people that he was considered a god. He was honored with a Statue, just like the others whom you honored as gods…..I advise you to destroy that statue. Justine Martyr (c. 160, E), 1. 182.
There was a Samaritan, Simon, a native of the village called Gitto, who in the reign of Claudius Cæsar, and in your royal city of Rome, did mighty acts of magic, by virtue of the art of the devils operating in him. He was considered a god, and as a god was honoured by you with a statue, which statue was erected on the river Tiber, between the two bridges, and bore this inscription, in the language of Rome: “Simoni Deo Sancto,” “To Simon the holy God.” And almost all the Samaritans, and a few even of other nations, worship him, and acknowledge him as the first god; and a woman, Helena, who went about with him at that time, and had formerly been a prostitute, they say is the first idea generated by him. And a man, Menander, also a Samaritan, of the town Capparetæa, a disciple of Simon, and inspired by devils, we know to have deceived many while he was in Antioch by his magical art. (JUSTIN MARTYR (THE FIRST APOLOGY-CHAPTER 26: MAGICIANS NOT TRUSTED BY CHRISTIANS)
It should be seen clearly from this writing of Justin that Christianity is a religion started in Rome by Simon Magus and his false apostolic team “Helena and Menander.” There is no doubt that the false Christianity religion was attracting more crowds in Rome compared to the Jewish Messianic movement of the 1st century. People enjoyed shortcuts and quick miracles back then and it’s the same thing that’s happening now. Those attracting large crowds are the false teachers/prophets that preach mostly about money/material and perform fake miracles through a familiar spirit. It is said that after the death of Simon Magus, his disciple Menander succeeded him and grew even stronger than Simon in sorcery, and just like Simon, Menander announced himself as the “savior of mankind”;
Menander, who succeeded Simon Magus, showed himself in his conduct another instrument of diabolical power, not inferior to the former. He also was a Samaritan and carried his sorceries to no less an extent than his teacher had done, and at the same time reveled in still more marvelous tales than he. For he said that he was himself the Saviour, who had been sent down from invisible “æons” for the salvation of men; and he taught that no one could gain the mastery over the world-creating angels themselves unless he had first gone through the magical discipline imparted by him and had received baptism from him. Those who were deemed worthy of this would partake even in the present life of perpetual immortality, and would never die, but would remain here forever, and without growing old become immortal. These facts can be easily learned from the works of Irenæus. (CHURCH HISTORY EUSEBIUS PAMPHILIUS, BOOK III. CHAPTER XXVI.—MENANDER THE SORCERER)
Just as the authentic apostles of Yeshua were travelling around the ancient world preaching, teaching and performing miracles, so were the false apostles going around preaching, teaching and performing magic;
For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will correspond to their actions. (1Corinthians11:13-15)
Menander the chief apostle of Simon Magus also went as far as Antioch to spread false Christianity religion and many people bought his concept of Christianity religion;
And a man, Menander, also a Samaritan, of the town Capparetæa, a disciple of Simon, and inspired by devils, we know to have deceived many while he was in Antioch by his magical art. He persuaded those who adhered to him that they should never die, and even now there are some living who hold this opinion of his. (JUSTIN MARTYR – THE FIRST APOLOGY-CHAPTER 26: MAGICIANS NOT TRUSTED BY CHRISTIANS)
The evil spirit that possessed Simon Magus [the founder of Christianity religion] and made him to declare himself to be Christ is what most preachers, pastors, bishops, evangelists and prophets are using to operate their churches and control their followers. A good example of this is TB Joshua (his real name is Temitope Balogun) who used to publicly worship the Muslim god Mohammad, and referred to himself as christ (even his followers called him christ) [he stopped this behavior publicly after facing ridicule from the public]. And those who don’t literally/verbally refer to themselves as God, do so otherwise by allowing their congregants to praise and worship THEM (calling it respecting spiritual authority) thus turning themselves into gods. There are many variances of spiritual deception, learn to be more sensitive in the spirit.
