12 Religious Men
 

Vision:7:30 Am

Saturday, September 6, 1997

by Jeannette L. Vetter

 

 
Ashamed:
It was early Saturday morning while in a half-asleep dream state that I was overtaken by a very vivid vision.
 

It impressed me acutely for I found myself naked among a host of people warning them that something extremely important was about to happen. What it was I didn't know myself. I was warning them about Jesus being the true Savior and to be patient and wait for Him because He would be coming shortly. The people, however, paid no attention to me or to the fact that I was naked. I did not understand why I was naked. I felt ashamed and extremely vulnerable even though I could see that there was a veil covering me. Looking through the veil was like looking through mist on a semi-foggy day. I sensed it was some sort of protective covering, but I did not realize until later that it was protection from what I was about to see.

Jesus was by my side informing me about the wonders and miracles that were happening all around the area where a crowd of people were gathered. There was a mad frenzy of excitement, but Jesus told me that each marvel was a deception. I felt the ambiance perilous for the souls of the spectators and was more concerned about them than about my own ashamedness. Throughout the dream Jesus instructed me what to look at as He revealed things to come. At the same time the Holy Spirit had me protected with a veil covering. I soon learned it was shielding me from the wicked supernatural event coming shortly.

 

 

The Vision

As the vision opened I found myself milling around a crowd of people telling them that an unholy spirit was close at hand with powerful lying signs and wonders. I was begging them not to believe what they were going to see. I went about saying, "No, do not believe!" "This is not true!" "I implore you not to believe what you will see!" All but one person ignored me, and they all had contempt for my preaching. Even this one who paid attention wore a sardonic sneer as as she listen to me plead for them to believe that Jesus is the true Christ and Savior of the world and that He really is coming soon. I was the only one preaching Jesus in the midst of thousands of people strolling in front of this huge edifice. I shouted that God loved them but that made them jeer and laugh even more. As I looked into their eyes I could see darkness and death, and when they opened their mouths to speak, I saw cavities of graves. It was disconcerting and terribly frustrating because they would not listen.

Suddenly I was inside the structure, which I recognized as the Vatican Church. It was beautiful beyond description. Outside, lights were visible and myriads of people were rushing to the grounds of Vatican City to view the miracles. I found myself in a room large enough for twelve men or so to sit comfortably around circular tables. I did not count the men but it seemed as if there were about twelve. One man stood in front of them speaking. I assumed he was the Pope and this room was in his private quarters. There was a Nun at the door making sure that no one passed through who was not summoned by the Pope. She turned several men away that were not on the list she held. They were told to wait outside because this was not the meeting to which they were asked to come.

Although I could see the men in the room, they did not see me. I tried to tell them they ought not do what they were about to do, but to no avail. They ignored me and were completely oblivious to my presence. As I wondered about the circumstances in which I found myself my stomach began to sink. I had the feeling something sinister was about to take place, and I wanted to get away from there and not be involved.

The Lord, who was by my side, knew this and reassured me by saying, "I am here Jeannette. This will not touch you. Watch and look." I held tight to the Lord's hand, and He had a tight grip on mine. I was shocked and bewildered wondering why I was present at such a formidable gathering. I kept looking to Jesus to make sure He was there. I felt secure with Him and the Holy Spirit both protecting me. As I gazed on the men the Lord told me these were "religious" men. I saw them sign a piece of paper, which, I learned was the conferring of their allegiance to the Pope. He had summoned them to his quarters in order for them to formally give him total control and power. It was a necessary step before he could receive what Satan had promised him.

After the last man signed the parchment paper, I could hear and see everywhere beings composed of light flashing and popping sort of like fireworks only it was not fireworks. Rather they were round balls of dazzling lights that flashed on and off mesmerizing the people. I could see the whole crowd marveling at the lying signs and wonders.

Instantly I was in the midst of the jubilant crowd. The people pressed in screaming hysterically. I said, "God what are they doing?" He said, "Look and see." I did and this is what I saw. Above the cathedral tower where the religious men and the Pope were in conference, I saw the descent of a being, which looked like a monk, floating down out of heaven. An aura surrounded him as he emerged from the clouds and power emanated from him in a stream that made the people gaze and gawk upward in a trancelike state. They seemed spellbound.

This monk appeared to have the traditional clothes of monks living in the Middle Ages. His hair was combed forward over his brow like a bowl hair cut, and he had a bald spot on the crown of his head. His brown robes were tied with a rope around his middle. He had sandals on his feet, and his beautiful face and radiant skin made him appear innocent and holy. God told me that this being was not from Him. He said, "Look again and see." I saw the most magnificent creature (a man? an angel? an illusion?) I have ever seen in my life. His beauty was indescribable, the quintessence of both masculine and feminine pulchritude. The power that proceeded from him did not touch me because of the veil, but I could not take my eyes off him. I said, "Jesus... Jesus... Jesus...I see the beautiful side of evil here. This is their savior and they love him." The Lord responded, "Yes, Jeannette."

As he descended the monk had his feet spread apart ready to place them on the cathedral tower. At the moment he touched the tower it disappeared leaving in its place a glowing white light emitting waves of ecstasy that reverberated down on the people. The monk and the light consumed the Pope and the religious men. I said, "Jesus, He is going to place his feet in a stance to imitate what you are going to do at the Mt. Of Olives" (Zechariah 14:4). My Lord responded, "Yes, Jeannette that is right." The last thing I heard before I awakened was someone in the crowd shouting St. Francis. I woke up in a daze, unnerved, and bewildered, wondering what all this could mean.

 

 

Interpretation of 12 Religious Men

By Lee Y. Martin, Ph.D. 1998

 

 
Prologue
This vision was somewhat difficult to decipher mainly because the visionary was naked throughout the revelation. We discussed the possibility that it might be from a source other than the Lord since the Bible from the beginning considers nakedness a shame and is always denounced in Scripture.
 

It was the first conscious awareness that something was wrong after the fall in Genesis 3:9-11, and it produced the first recorded sin aftereffect following the great worldwide flood (Genesis 9:22-23). Further, we read that in olden days captives were often made to walk disrobed in humiliating fashion to their place of servitude. Considering these things, why would our Lord who so graciously clothed the first sinners want one of His visionaries to walk naked in front of people?

 

 

Background

In searching the Word one finds that Isaiah was told by God to walk naked and barefoot before his countrymen for three years as a sign that the nations toward whom the Israelites were looking for deliverance, Egypt and Ethiopia, would be judged in the manner Isaiah was advertising. In that day no one missed the point because the humiliating manner of naked servitude was not uncommon. One may ask, why was he not sent to Egypt to portray this since the judgment was scheduled for Egypt? Did not Jonah go to Ninevah? The answer must lie in the fact that God was speaking not to the Gentiles but to His own people. God knew the Ninevites would respond to His warning so He sent Jonah to preach to them. He also knew the proud heritage of the Egyptians and Ethiopians would keep them from humbling themselves as the Ninevites had, and thus, it would do no good to send a messenger to them. God has always warned His own people of coming disaster. He is longsuffering to the extreme. Unfortunately, His people are too often stubborn, rebellious, and will not listen.

Isaiah was ordered to parade in the nude for its shock value. Because the hearts of people are desperately wicked (Jeremiah 17:9), they must sometimes be taught by using incredulous means. In this dream Jeannette was the only one amidst the masses completely unclothed, yet the people refused to pay her any attention. Most people gape or gasp at the display of nudity, but these people only showed contempt because of her preaching. Was this lack of shame on the part of the people witness to a hardened conscience? Today we see an increasing show of disdain for evangelicals who teach that Jesus is the only way to reach heaven. He said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me" (John 14:6). Yet exclusivity is fast becoming politically incorrect.

Isaiah illustrated by his dress -- oops undress -- that Israel would become an astonishment to the nations if they did not repent of looking to Egypt for help instead of God. In like manner Jeannette represented the shame and nakedness that would come to the church if believers did not listen to and heed warnings from God's prophets about lying signs and wonders. Spirit manifestations are multiplying and spreading at an alarming rate. This phenomena has been prophesied in scripture as an endtime delusion which would manifest at the end of the age (II Thessalonians 2:9; Revelation 13:14; 16:14; 19:20).

Witnessing marvels and miracles was the transcendent theme throughout the dream. The setting was the Vatican ostensibly the seat of Jesus Christ's church. Closer inspection reveals it actually was (is?) the seat of the Antichrist's church. The people who gathered around the Vatican had come for a well-planned festival in which signs and wonders were in great supply. Jesus admonished Jeannette to warn the people not to become enamored by the things that they were seeing. She does so but gets contempt for her efforts.

 

The Party

Does Project 2000 fit this scenario? We have heard that the world is planning for millions of peoples from every nation to visit the Vatican at the turn of the Millenium in celebration of Christ's 2,000th birthday. We have also heard that the Pope will be receiving a Prince of Peace award for his work in bringing all the religions of the world together. Could this be the bash that Jeannette attended in the dream? Is it possible that the sneers and contempt from the masses was because there are all sorts of religions represented at the celebration who hold no love for the Son of God?

If the foregoing obtains, Jeannette's exhibition of nakedness is prophetic of a profound deception coming upon the church world and suggestive of a warning to Jesus' bride, similar to the warning of Isaiah in his day, not to partake of this planned false feast of tabernacles. A bride typically wears a veil to her wedding and in this vision Jeannette needed one although not for the same reason. It appears as if one must be veiled (sealed?) in order to be able to countermand the psychotronic forecasting of psychic powers. The Bible testifies to an inordinate amount of lying signs and wonders at the end of the age, and Jesus explained to Jeannette early on in the dream that there was coming something so gloriously false, she would need the protective veil she was wearing to keep her from succumbing to the lie. Indeed, she did witness the beautiful side of evil, an evil so resplendently bewitching, anyone unschooled in Biblical eschatology (endtime prophecy) would be non-resistant to its force (II Thessalonians 2:11,12).

The veil of Solomon's Temple was a protective covering from unwise intrusion into the Holy presence of God. So too the visionary needed protection from deceptive intrusion into her spiritual Holy of Holies, her spirit-man. Moreover, all Christians who attend the "party of 2000" will also need some sort of supernatural covering. In the dream, belief in the words of Jesus as spoken by his prophet Jeannette would have kept the people from being deceived. Similarly, belief in every Word of God as written in His Holy Bible can keep God's children from being deceived. Nevertheless, the measure of protection the Word of God can give is compromised if one doesn't heed it. The Bible admonishes separation from the world in order to protect and preserve one's purity and integrity to the Word. Sanctification comes at a price. Furthermore, we are warned in the book of Revelation that true believers must not partake of this false church or they are in peril of participating in the plagues to come.

  Rev 18:4
  4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. (KJV)

Hence it is perhaps the better part of wisdom not to even go to the party.

 

 

The Monk

For those unfamiliar with the Bible it is advisable to read Daniel chapter 9, especially verses 24 through 27 wherein Daniel received words from the Lord in a vision telling about a man who is coming at a specified time in the future and who would make a covenant with many for seven years.

  Dan 9:26-27
 

26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary...

27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease...(KJV)

From the above we can see that the prince who is to come will confirm a covenant (or make a treaty) with many for seven years. In the dream Jeannette saw as many as twelve men, perhaps more, for she did not count the number who signed the agreement with the Pope at his headquarters. She only thought there were about twelve, so maybe the twelve were symbolic of many who would sign the document. Could this be some sort of confederacy arrangement between all the religions of the world? The formation of a U.R., a United Religions of the world? Whatever the agreement it is significant that it signaled the appearance of the monk.

 

Giotto Cambrogio Bondone, deto 1267-1337, The Extasy of San Francis.
Who did the monk signify in the dream?Let me suggest that he represented Satan who shall empower the False Prophet of Revelation 13 so that he can do great wonders in the sight of the people and in the sight of the Antichrist head of the beast. Reading the entire 13th chapter you will find that it is the False Prophet who performs the supernatural feats, not the Antichrist, and who blinds the minds of them that believe not. (See also Revelation 19:20.) The scene of the dream is Vatican City and the lying signs and wonders were manifesting at the Pope's headquarters. It is his demonstration of marvels that seduces the people into following his and the Antichrist's lead.

 

 
  Rev 13:13-14
 

13 And he doeth great wonders...in the sight of men,

14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast...(KJV)

I submit that it is this man in verses 11 and following of chapter 13 who is consumed by the monk in the dream and as a result the man is given tremendous power to perform miracles which Satan had promised him. Jesus explained to Jeannette that these were "religious" men. Why did Jesus need to tell her that these were religious men? Weren't they in Vatican City, a very religious place? Was He emphasizing that they represented all the religions of the world?

There are two sources of all visions and dreams, God or his adversaries. If they come from the Almighty, you can be sure that everything in them is meaningful and true. The monk's descent in the dream counterfeited Jesus' Second Coming in more ways than one.

1.) The monk emerged from the clouds in like fashion to Jesus' return:

  Matt 24:30
 

30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven...and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. (KJV)

2.) The monk came in magnificent glory leaving the crowd spellbound. Jesus will come again likewise:

  Mark 13:26
 

26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. (KJV)

3.) All the people gazed at his descent in great amazement:

  Rev 1:7
 

7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him...(KJV)

4.) The monk set his two feet on the cathedral tower causing it to dissipate:

  Zech 14:4
 

4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. (KJV)

When Jesus comes the second time, He will set His feet on the Mt. of Olives, which will cause a signification perturbation -- the mountain cleaves (splits) in twain. The point at which the monk's feet touched the tower in the dream caused waves of ecstasy to overshadow the people stupefying them. Could these be ELF

* waves of energy, which are known to produce personality changes in people? Are not all the foregoing passages of Holy Scripture about Jesus' Second Coming duplicated in some measure by the monk?

It is significant that the monk's robe was not white. White in scripture typically signifies righteousness. According to Jesus there is no truth, (or righteousness), in Satan (John 8:44). Consequently he wears a monk's robe which color is brown depicting not righteousness but the unrighteous delusion that is being brought upon the world.

  II Th 2:9-10
 
9 Even him whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: (KJV)

The gloriously radiant appearing of the monk who counterfeits Jesus' coming brings the final lie that deludes humanity. The scores of people at the festival hail this monk as their redeemer. They are consumed by his dazzling appearance and mesmerized by the supernatural marvels they are witnessing. They are looking to him to secure peace and safety to a troubled world. Note that the people attending this celebration are in the domain of Christendom. But which Christ is it? The Cosmic Christ of all faiths?

 

Epilogue

The message of this vision from God to His people is bound up in the garb of the seer. On the one hand the veil symbolized a covering, belief in the Word of God, that protects the bride of the true Christ in these last days of confusion. Due to a lack of dedication on the part of church leaders to hold fast to sound doctrine, God permits strong delusion to consume those who do not love His Word which warns of great deception in the latter times. Paul told Timothy this would happen.

  2 Tim 4:3-4
 

3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. (KJV)

On the other hand the visionary's nakedness spoke to the consequences of not heeding God's prophetic words about the deception that shall come upon the whole world.

I submit that true believers will seek the only veil that protects from deception -- the Word of God. If they don't, they will be in serious danger of succumbing to the final lie of Satan. Given that one does not build a house in a storm, it behooves Christians to start now studying the Bible in order to be able to withstand in the evil day. The only sanctuary is to know what the Holy Scriptures teach about the endtime. The charismatic world is extremely vulnerable to the endtime deception because they are largely unschooled in Bible doctrine. They are enamored with signs and wonders, are bored with traditional things, and are undisciplined and lawless regarding church matters having opted to follow whatever "new revelation" comes down the pipe. I pray that you will become saturated with the Word and build that wall of protection between you and lying signs and wonders. Carefully weigh the implications of this vision as it relates to the coming celebration in Rome. Take heed to the prophet's personification of what will happen to those who refuse to accept God's warning. Do you really want to be found wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked (Revelation 3:17)?
