|MOSES - ISAIAH - ST. PETER
In [Numbers 11:17] we see God promising to give Moses some help. God told Moses to
choose 70 men and He (God) would come down upon them and give some of the same Spirit
that God had given to Moses to the 70 elders. No sooner than God had given His Spirit to the
70 elders than someone tried to usurp the POWER & AUTHORITY from God's chosen
leader Moses. [Numbers 12:1-2] "Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses . . . and they said;
'Has the Lord indeed spoken only through Moses?' The Lord put a stop to this insurrection
immediately! vv. 4ff, "And suddenly the Lord said to Moses and to Aaron and to Miriam,
'Come out you three, to the tent of meeting.' And the three of them came out. And the Lord
came down in a pillar of cloud, and stood at the door of the tent, and called Aaron and
Miriam; and they both came forward. And he said, 'Hear my words: If there is a prophet
among you, I the Lord make myself known to him in a vision, I speak with him in a dream.
Not so with my servant Moses; he is entrusted with all my house. With him I speak mouth to
mouth, clearly, and not in dark speech; and he beholds the form of the Lord.
WHY THEN WERE YOU NOT AFRAID TO SPEAK AGAINST
MY SERVANT MOSES?"
"And the anger of the Lord was kindled against them, and he departed; and when the cloud
removed from over the tent, behold, Miriam was leprous, as white as snow."
We can see by the preceding verse that God gave His Spirit to 70 elders and Moses, yet
Moses had a different relationship with God. And so in the New Covenant God gives His Holy
Spirit to every Baptized believer and yet God has a special relationship with His Chosen
leaders the Popes! In Matthew 16:17; Jesus states that His Father speaks directly to St.
Peter. "Jesus said to him in reply, "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah. For flesh and blood
has not revealed this to you, but my heavenly Father."
WHY THEN WERE YOU NOT AFRAID TO SPEAK AGAINST MY SERVANT[S THE POPES]?"
I want, you, the reader to understand the connection from Moses to Isaiah to St. Peter.
In Numbers 12:7 God says that Moses; "is entrusted with all my house".
In Isaiah 22:15ff, God through Isaiah promises to put Eliakim in charge of His "house". This is
not only a prophecy of an immediate future event but is also a prophecy of "The Papacy"!
"I will thrust you from your office and cast you from your station. In that day I will call my
servant Eliakim the son of Hilkiah, and I will clothe him with your robe, and will bind your girdle
on him, and will commit your authority to his hand; and he shall be a father to the inhabitants
of Jerusalem and to the house of Judah. And I will place on his shoulder the KEY of the
HOUSE of David; he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open."
Now to Matthew 16:18-19, "And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my
church, and the powers of death shall not prevail against it. I will give you the KEYS of the
kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever
you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven."
In Numbers 12:7 God says that Moses; "is entrusted with all my HOUSE" Isaiah 22:22 "And I
will place on his shoulder the KEY of the HOUSE of David; he shall open, and none shall shut;
and he shall shut, and none shall open."
Matthew 16:19; "I will give you the KEYS of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on
earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven."
There you have it!

The young Prophet Daniel in defending the righteous woman Susanna, declared; "Are
you such fools, O Israelites! To condemn a woman of Israel without examination and
without clear evidence? (13:49)".
I declare the same to those who attack Christ's Church founded on the Apostle St.
"Are you such fools, O Israelites! To condemn [The Church of God - The Catholic Church]
without examination and without clear evidence?
THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH!
