Tuesday (April 19, 2005), the Pontificate vacated by John Paul II has been filled by Benedict XVI.

Formerly known as Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the new pope – in common with all the other occupants of his office, automatically becomes THE GREATEST USURPER on the globe!

In the very titles he bears, the Pope takes every Person in the Godhead and lays personal claim to it, ensuring that he fits the description of Antichrist given in 2 Thessalonians 2:3&4.

This message emphasises the scale of the blasphemy and idolatry involved in the Papacy as the Pope assumes the titles that properly - and only - belong to the Godhead:

The Pope is universally referred to as the “Holy Father” - a title that is only used once in the Bible (John 17:11) and is exclusively God the Father’s.

Principally through the title, ‘Supreme Pontiff Of The Universal Church,’ the Pope stands in the place of Christ. He usurps all three of our Saviour’s mediatorial offices of Prophet, Priest and King.

The Pope styles himself the Vicar [representative / substitute] of Christ on earth – but the Holy Spirit is the only one who fully represents Christ on this earth (John 14:16,17&26; 15:26)!

Not without significance is the fact that Benedict XVI concluded his first speech as Pope with the words: "Mary is on our side"! Evidently, he is another devotee of the ecumenical 'goddess'! (cf. Sermon #3 in this series).

“ The Name of Blasphemy on the Beast's Heads ”
It is important to remember Revelation 13:1-18 in times like these. The beast, who is the Antichrist, has the name of blasphemy upon his heads. As we know, the name of blasphemy is referring to rebellion against Jesus since the Beast, the Antichrist, is a rebel against Abba Father and His Anointed Son, Jesus. The Vatican is preparing the people of the world to receive the Mark of the Beast on their foreheads and their hands. It is also worth noting Revelation 14:9-11 as well since it outlines the eternal punishment for those who worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark on their foreheads and hands. This sermon is a call to repent of rebellious Catholic popery, which is rebellion against Abba Father, and His Anointed Son Yeshua.

Anonymous Name (10/1/2019)
“ Vatican: Source of Spiritual Bewilderment ”
Both the Vatican and World Council of Churches have caused spiritual bewilderment since their very beginning. Even to this day, people are still bewildered over the death of Pope John Paul II on 02 April, 2005. Bewilderment is another way of saying confusion. Of course the demise of Pope John Paul II is clear evidence that the Vatican is foreordained to perish. A sermon like this is a call to repent of all manner of apostasy, especially that which is of popish character.

Anonymous Name (9/1/2019)
“ Every Pope: Rebels From The Start ”
The World Council of Churches and the Vatican is run by people who are in rebellion against Yehovah just as the builders of the Tower of Babel were in Genesis 11:1-9. This also means that every pope has been a rebel against Yehovah since the papacy first began. The Vatican's rebellion against Yehovah is evident in its violation of the Second Commandment through the making and worship of molten images of Mary and the so-called "saints." Of course, the Vatican's rebellion is foreordained to be put down on Judgment Day. This sermon proves that the Roman Catholic Church is a church of rebels, which means that the Roman Catholic Church is the Rebel Catholic Church.

Anonymous Name (7/15/2019)
“ Pope John Paul II: Died in his sins ”
Pope John Paul II, born Karol Józef Wojtyła (18 May 1920 – 2 April 2005), like every other Roman Catholic pope, died in his sins. Then again, all of the Roman Catholic popes died in their sins and are now being tormented in Hell, and will later on be judged at the Great White Throne and be cast into the Lake of Fire. It is worth remembering John 8:24 in times like these.

Anonymous Name (7/15/2019)
“ Catholic Popes: Without Chastisement ”
Every Roman Catholic pope, including the fallen ones, are without the chastening from The Lord. It is worth remembering Hebrews 12:4-11 in times like these.

Anonymous Name (2/4/2019)
“ The Great White Throne Judgment ”
And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:11-15).

Anonymous Name (10/28/2018)
“ The pope will be forgotten ”
By the time every Roman Catholic pope is cast into the Lake of Fire, they will all be forgotten. Remember Revelation 20:11-15.

Anonymous Name (9/23/2018)
“ Pope: Destroyer of Souls ”
A helpful sermon showing why the pope is a destroyer of souls, including their own.

Anonymous Name (7/18/2018)
“ An indictment against the rebellious pope ”
This sermon is an indictment against the rebellious pope. Then again, the papacy has always been about rebellion against the Lord since its very inception. The Vatican is even more dangerous now with a Jesuit pope. The popes, past, present, and future, have reflected their rebellion against the Lord by adding sacraments to salvation, the construction and worship of graven images of supposedly saintly figures, and so forth. The demise of Mother Teresa and Pope John Paul II show the foolishness of Roman Catholicism, aka popery.

Anonymous Name (7/3/2018)
“ God: Eliminator of all popes ”
When Pope John Paul II passed away on 2 April, 2005, it was a sign that God intended on eliminating the pope. God's Wrath will wax hot on the blasphemous pope for propagating a false gospel of sacramental salvation to every major corner of the Earth as well as blasphemously carrying the title of Holy Father and His Holiness. Since The Psalmist said that he hates the enemies of The Lord with perfect hatred and counting them as his enemies in Psalm 139:22, we too must hate the pope with perfect hatred, counting that pope as our enemy. The bottom line is that God hates the pope and his blasphemous base of operations called the Vatican. It wasn't just septic shock and disease that claimed the life of Pope John Paul II. It was The Righteous Wrath of God that did, sending Pope John Paul II into eternal punishment in Hell. Someday, Pope John Paul II and every other pope will be judged at the Great White Throne and be punished with an eternity in the Lake of Fire.

Anonymous Name (7/1/2018)
“ The pope: usurper from the beginning ”
This sermon shows why every pope is a usurper. The pope is a usurper in that he blasphemously assumes the titles of "Holy Father" and "His Holiness". The fact is that every pope from the first to the last has been preparing the world for the reign of the Antichrist. Of course, the Antichrist will be a usurper as well. We know that the Antichrist attempts to usurp the place of Jesus Christ since Antichrist means in place of Christ. Of course, every pope as well as the Antichrist will have their part in the Lake of Fire.

“ The Popes: The Men Most Hated by God ”
If there is one man that The Lord hates the most, it is the popes in the Vatican. It is because the popes, past, present, and future, blaspheme The Lord by referring to themselves as "Holy Father" and "His Holiness". The titles of Holy Father and His Holiness only belong to Abba Father, not the blasphemous, but prestigious pope in the Vatican. Remember the Imprecatory Psalms of Psalms 5, 10, 17, 35, 58, 59, 69, 70, 79, 83, 109, 129, 137, and 140 whenever you think about the blasphemous pope in the Vatican. The fact of the matter is, that every Roman Catholic pope is predetermined to be cursed and smitten by God from the very beginning.

“ The Church of Rome: Enemy of Liberty ”
"The Church of Rome is the most formidable combination that ever was formed against the authority and security of civil government, as well as against the liberty, reason, and happiness of mankind." (Wealth of Nations, Book V, Chapter 1, Part 3, Ant. 3 by Adam Smith). This author is saying that the Roman Catholic Church is hostile towards the authority and security of civil government as well as the liberty, reason, and happiness of mankind.

Unspecified name (3/26/2018)
“ Rome: Instrument of Poverty, Servitude, and Torpor ”
"The loveliest and most fertile provinces of Europe have under her (Rome's) rule, been sunk in poverty, in political servitude, and in intellectual torpor." (History of England, Volume 1, page 47 by Lord Macaulay).

Unspecified name (3/26/2018)
“ The Pope: Seeking Only Rebellion ”
An evil man seeketh only rebellion: therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him. (Proverbs 17:11). Every pope was an evil man seeking only rebellion. The result is that a cruel messenger shall be sent against every single pope. On Judgement Day at the Great White Throne, The Lord will punish these blasphemous usurpers called the popes with great indignation, sentencing them to eternal punishment and torment in the Lake of Fire.

Unspecified name (2/26/2018)
“ The Lake of Fire: The Pope's Future Home ”
Remember Revelation 20:11-15. Every pope is headed for the Lake of Fire. God will expose the sins of every pope and condemn them to a fiery eternity in the Lake of Fire. For now, all the fallen popes are being punished for their sins in Hell.

Unspecified name (2/25/2018)
“ The pope: enemy of God ”
Every Roman Catholic pope is the enemy of God. Enough said.

“ Great Sermon! ”
Timeless message. 10 Years later and Popes have come and gone but the important points Rev. Brown makes are still as relevant as ever.

Pastor Diehl (11/30/2005)
from USA
“ Protestants hail the Pope. ”
The dangers are evident, the traps are set. Yet, too many Protestants and their star-studded leaders are asleep and getting caught. When we have those like Billy Graham saying that the last Pope, John Paul II, was the greatest spiritual leader of this past century, we can see not only that the Roman Church is deceitful but so are many Protestant leaders. We have been warned in the Word of God that there will be a great apostasy in the end times and even the elect would be decieved if it were not for Christ's return. We are in those days now. Too many "professing" Christians fall for every false teaching coming down the pike because they are biblically ignorant and wordly-minded. When apostate Protestant leaders support Rome and its false leaders the future safety of true believers is in question. It takes little research to discover what the pagan leaders of the apostate Catholic Church have done to true believers over the centuries. Therefore, prepare yourselves, the separating of the "professor" from the "possessor" in America's churches is nearer than we think. Which side choose you? As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord - not apostate teachers like BG.

“ Great Sermon! ”
The man of sin is the pope who is the greatest blasphemer on earth. Who else in the world is as great a usurper as the pope? Are there any greater blasphemers? There is no need to look for a future AntiChrist. The papacy is AntiChrist! http://www.time

“ Great Sermon! ”
Your sermon titled, "The Pope's Greatest Bible Verse" is so excellent. I'd like to get a transcript of it, in order to use it in a future message that I preach. If you have a copy, would you please e-mail it to me? I would so appreciate it. I live, serve and train at a missionary training camp and many of the young people have no clue about the "Church" of Rome.

“ Amen, Brother! ”
Thank you for telling the truth about Jesus Christ and Him crucified! Not one American preacher of The Word would tell the truth about the leader of the earthly "Great Whore of Rome" as you do, so adeptly. None would use the Holy Bible so accurately to slay the dragon of deceit and primary tool of the liar of all liars. May the Holy Spirit continue to work through you with the power and truth of God's conviction. Until all hear!

“ Excellent Sermon! ”
Excellent sermon! If John Paul II agreed to be so called “Holy Father,” then he is in trouble at this very moment. “The Holy Father” is already in heaven. See Mathew 23:9. Please hear this sermon ‘New Pope? – Ultimate Usurper!’ It is quite educational. Thanks.

“ Standing By The Truth! ”
Thank you for the work that you are doing. The papacy and Catholic teaching in general is one of my particular interests. I view the papacy as a monstrous and evil force in human history, claiming to be the true Christian Church, but in truth being a forgery of the faith that Christ gave to his followers. In my study of Catholic teaching, I have yet to find a single Catholic doctrine that is in accord with scripture. It is not that some of its doctrines are correct and others are not, but rather that all of its doctrines to a greater or lesser extent are tainted with serious error. Stand by the truth!

“ Not Ashamed! ”
I loved your Usurper Pope audio message... . Glad to hear someone preaching the "truth." I, too, couldn't believe the massive crowds of people - including our President and even your Prince Charles delaying his marriage over this ... . Just an ordinary man - not above any other, because the Lord, Our God - has no prejudices. He is no respecter of persons. You are so right about the Catholic faith.

I think that the speaker deals with the subject of popery very well and I would recommend that every Christian would listen to this sermon.

Great Message! Thy word is true. Not the word of Rome. Nobody wants to tell the truth about the pope and Rome. Thanks for speaking in Christ and telling it like it is. 1 Corinthians 2:2.

I haven´t heard the preach, because I´m looking forward to have it translated, then I can download, read and share it with my students friends and other churches around here. As soon as sermonaudio has this services I´ll be more than glad to make my comments. However, everything that´s done to show how Roman Catholic church has been sistematically cheaten to the world is good for me. Edwin

“ Great Sermon! ”
This sermon brings out points that show some of the dangerous labels that the Pope had put on himself. No man, other than our Savior Jesus Christ, should claim such titles. Thank you for staying with the Bible. I hope people will seek God and be careful not to give the honor to any man except Jesus Christ.

“ Great Sermon! ”
Keep preaching the truth. I sometimes cannot believe the way Christians (so-called) whore after the cult of Roman Catholicism. Your message was right on. May the Lord bless your stand.

A Former Roman Catholic (4/19/2005)
“ Great Sermon! ”
The stage is set for the giant to awake and plunder the world. Rome has looked to this day since the end of Second Vatican Council. They could not do it with Paul 6th for he was a man who suffered depression and was not capable to fulfil the plan of Vatican II. John Paul I was sickly and unable to set in place key cardinals all over the world so they had John Paul II to begin the process and the next pope will conclude it. The Roman Church will rise to a power that the world can only tremble at as this new papacy will clear the way for the end and Revelation fullfilment.

Jack (4/16/2005)

“ Gives it Straight! ”
People may place their bets and cardinals may cast their votes, but - as this great sermon reminds us - "whoever the next Pope may be, in common with all the other occupants of this office, he will automatically become THE GREATEST USURPER on the globe!"

“ Excellent Preaching! ”
Amen brother! Excellent preaching! May God continue to bless your ministry as you defend the great truths of God's wonderful Free Sovereign Grace, and expose the false doctrines of popery!...1 Timothy 4:1 says.. ¶Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils... We see this taking place today before our very eyes!

“ Great Sermon! ”
Another Exellent message of truth from Brother Ian Brown. I thank the Lord that He has servants today that are not afraid to preach TRUTH. The false teaching of the church of Rome is not spoken of often enough. They are not brothers but are THE biggest deceivers that are leading people to hell. We need to stand together with those who will not compromise with Catholicism but rather reject it and cling to the truth.
