Rome’s supposed conversion to Christianity, 16-1700 years ago thanks to the Emperor Constantine and his vision then dream to use the symbol of a cross to create the universal Roman and achieve victory for the Roman Empire.
The image of a cross below the sun, is a representation of the ‘image’ first seen by the Roman Emperor Constantine and, supposedly, later explained to him by Jesus of Nazareth before he also revealed himself as the prophesied Christ Messiah in a dream Constantine had prior a pivotal battle, for the future of the Roman Empire, at Milvian Bridge, several hundred kilometres from Rome, in the year we now record as 311AD.
Or at least that is what ‘history’ tells us, if you check.
Constantine was waging war against his rival, Maxentius, for the role of leading Rome’s vast and still expanding, Empire. Emperor of Britannia, a power in Rome’s Western Empire, a learned man and a respected warrior Constantine had spent his life, since childhood, around the corridors of Rome’s palaces. He was a worshipper of Sol, the sun God, and his mother was Helena, herself a woman of great repute in Rome.
The battle at Milvian Bridge, history records, would determine who leads Rome into an uncertain future. Riches being transported to Rome from within the Empire were regularly stolen by bandits and Rome faced the prospect of not being able to finance their Empire, pay their soldiers, administrators, nor continue expansion. And Constantine was supposedly facing much more superior forces fighting for Maxentius.
The battle would take place in the heart of Rome’s Western Empire, just beyond Rome itself and the victor would command not only the existing Western (European) Empire but also the expanding Eastern Empire through Africa and into Asia after the Middle East.
The date of the battle is recorded as 311AD. Supposedly 311 years after the death of the Nazarene who would be proclaimed, by Rome, as The Christ Messiah. But also around the time that the current Age of Pisces began.
As Constantine faced supposedly superior forces he sought to utilise the interpretation of his earlier vision, that he had been told by Jesus. And so Constantine’s forces were instructed to mark their shields, or armour, with the symbol of a cross and he, reputedly, had three giant crosses constructed to be carried into the battle.
Constantine was victorious and Maxentius, who was supposedly seen fleeing before inevitable defeat, died mysteriously later at his campsite. Inexplicably apparently though later credited as being by divine intervention.
The victorious Constantine would later accredit Jesus of Nazarene with his victory and supposedly soon set about imposing more tolerant treatment of persecuted Christians, ordering an end to their crucifixion: instead their death would be by hanging.
Constantine’s role as leader of Rome would come in the year recorded as 325AD by which time he had begun assimilating this Jewish cult, to be known as Christianity, into the Roman Empire
