How did “The Thousand Year Reign” end? The Catholic Church had ruled over Western Christendom from after the Fall of Rome until Luther. Forty generations of devout Catholics had made gifts of land and property to The Only Church Jesus Founded.
That property accumulated. The Catholic Church used it to provide schools, hospitals, orphanages, monasteries, churches, convents, and accommodations for the poor.
When “The Thousand Year Reign” ended, 500 years ago, The Catholic Church was using one third of England for prayer and good works. Almost 20,000,000 acres were devoted to The Church’s Institutions!
There were so many Catholic Churches that all could hear the daily songs, bells, and prayers of faithful Catholics echoing across much of Europe wherever they were.
The devil hated it!
Demons of greed and gluttony got into many minds: “If we invent reasons to turn our military forces against The Church, we could get all that land! We could take over Catholic Churches, schools, universities, hospitals, and social services! We could become ‘instant billionaires’!”
They hired vain, ambitious men to invent the justifications they needed to become “instant billionaires”. Henry 8th was the head of the English government. He had serious medical problems, including massive brain damage from severe concussions caused by falling off his horse in full armor and landing on his head.
The powerful, greedy men realized: “If we keep him confused with wine, women, and song, we can get the Addled Nincompoop to declare himself ‘Pope’! He can confiscate all the Catholic properties. He can sign them over to us! We will be the ‘New Lords of The Manor’! We will be ‘instant billionaires!”
Over a million Catholics lost their land and their lives as politically-correct Protestantism replaced Catholicism with the bizarre notion: “We can kill and steal and go to Heaven!”
After England and Ireland, Land-Grabbing Protestants exterminated Indians in North America and took their land. Today, their spiritual descendants dispose of inconvenient, unborn children, glad that “The Thousand Year Reign” ended.
