In a brief discussion about the Inquisition the statement was made:
“The Inquisition began circa 1100 A.D. but did not reach its height of cruelty until it was established in 1229 A.D. and was in force about 600 years, and still exists on paper since 1965 under a new name, waiting to be used again.”
“Thus he [an angel] said: ‘The fourth beast shall be a fourth kingdom on earth, which shall be different from all other kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, trample it and break it in pieces. The ten horns are ten kings who shall arise from this kingdom. And another shall rise after them; he shall be different from the first ones, and shall subdue three kings. He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, shall persecute the saints of the Most High, and shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand for a time and times and half a time [3½ years]. But the court shall be seated, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and destroy it forever.’” Daniel 7:23-26.
