Because this thread is so long, I am going to pick this apart piece by piece. This guy bears false witness. He says the Brothers believe that they are the Two Witnesses and says there is no question about it [its undisputed fact]. Where are the cited facts?
"The Dimonds believe they are the Two Witnesses from chapter 11 of the Apocalypse. There’s no question about it. After looking at the evidence I'll be presenting, I’m sure you’ll agree. On the same note, it is not my primary intention to prove that the Dimonds believe this – but rather to prove its absolute impossibility. This is the primary goal of this post."
Truthfully, I can say, because I spoke to Brother Michael on the phone some years ago and he clearly stated to me that they DO NOT think that they are the two witnesses.
Second, this guy attempts to smear the Brothers by twisting scripture and omitting the previous and subsequent verses of chapter 18 of the Apocalypse, that would destroy his lies, for which he is nothing more than a typical protestant. Here is his quote.
"By way of a quick example, the Brothers believe that the “Babylon” spoken of in the Book of the Apocalypse is the city of Rome – and therefore the “Fall of Babylon” refers to the “Fall of Rome from the Catholic Faith”. This has been their position for many years, as any of their followers know. At the same time, Scripture states very clearly that the “Fall of Babylon” is an occasion for REJOICING in Heaven (Apoc. 18:20, 19:1-4). And here we see the problem. If one wants to uphold the Dimonds’ position, one has to maintain that all of Heaven rejoices at the Fall of Rome from the Catholic Faith – a position so theologically preposterous that words simply fail."
This guy also, attacks Mary, the mother of God and the Catholic church. Our Lady of La Salette is an approved apparition for which Our Lady did say that "Rome would lose the faith and become the seat of the Antichrist, the church would be in eclipse."
Let me provide the relevant verses of Apocalypse chapters 18-19. In these two chapters, St. John describes the bishops in purple and Cardinals in red and how in one hour St. Peter's Basilica [the building] in Rome has come to nought because of "Paul VI's" false altar that is brought over and against the true altar of God. Also, Paul VI's new Missal. And also the changing of the words of the wine portion of the Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Mass.
Please notice that verse 23 clearly states the Tabernacle Lamp will not shine any more in thee. Which means that Jesus is not there, its desolate, its a counterfeit catholic church, clothed in purple and scarlet!
Apocalypse 18:16-21  And saying: Alas! alas! that great city, which was clothed with fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and was gilt with gold, and precious stones, and pearls.  For in one hour are so great riches come to nought; and every shipmaster, and all that sail into the lake, and mariners, and as many as work in the sea, stood afar off.  And cried, seeing the place of her burning, saying: What city is like to this great city?  And they cast dust upon their heads, and cried, weeping and mourning, saying: Alas! alas! that great city, wherein all were made rich, that had ships at sea, by reason of her prices: for in one hour she is made desolate.  Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath judged your judgment on her. And a mighty angel took up a stone, as it were a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying: With such violence as this shall Babylon, that great city, be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.  And the voice of harpers, and of musicians, and of them that play on the pipe, and on the trumpet, shall no more be heard at all in thee; and no craftsman of any art whatsoever shall be found any more at all in thee; and the sound of the mill shall be heard no more at all in thee;  And the light of the lamp shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth, for all nations have been deceived by thy enchantments.  And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
Apocalypse 19:1-4  After these things I heard as it were the voice of much people in heaven, saying: Alleluia. Salvation, and glory, and power is to our God.  For true and just are his judgments, who hath judged the great harlot which corrupted the earth with her fornication, and hath revenged the blood of his servants, at her hands.  And again they said: Alleluia. And her smoke ascendeth for ever and ever.  And the four and twenty ancients, and the four living creatures fell down and adored God that sitteth upon the throne, saying: Amen; Alleluia.
It is so obviously clear that the rejoicing is, God destroying this harlot, the counterfeit catholic church, clothed in purple and scarlet, in Rome! It will be an asteroid thrown into the Mediterranean Sea near Rome, completely destroying the city.
Prophecy of Jeremias 51:42 The sea is come up over Babylon: she is covered with the multitude of the waves thereof.
