Be alert for the following Prophetic Events?

The ‘revolt’ – ‘falling away’ – ‘great apostasy’?

The conversion of all Israel?

The arrival of THE Antichrist?

The coming out of the Ark of the Covenant?

Before we begin I wish to quote two verses of Scripture which may be a help and guide as we research further: “(God) Who has delivered us and called us by His holy calling, not according to our own works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the times of the world…Know also this, that in the last days shall come dangerous times. Men shall be lovers of themselves, covetous, haughty, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, wicked, without affection, without peace, slanderers, incontinent, unmerciful, without kindness, traitors, stubborn, puffed up, and lovers of pleasures, more than of God, having an appearance indeed of godliness but denying the power thereof. Now these avoid…For there shall be a time when they will not endure sound doctrine but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers having itching ears, and will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables” (2T 1:9; 3:1-5; 4:3,4).

“Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of the elect of God and the acknowledging of the truth, which is according to godliness, unto the hope of life everlasting, which God, Who lies not, has promised before the times of the world, but has in due times manifested His word in preaching, which is committed to me according to the commandment of God our Saviour(Tt 1:1-3).

The ‘revolt’ – ‘falling away’ – ‘the great apostasy’?
I include a note here from ‘The Catholic Dictionary.’
Apostasy is of three kinds: that from the Christian faith; that from ecclesiastical obedience; and that from a religious profession or from Holy Orders.”
“Let no man deceive you by any means, for unless there come a revolt first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition… (2Th 2:3).
‘a revolt’ could mean those who have given up the faith and fallen away from God. It could also mean and include those who are non-Christians (e.g. Muslims and Jews) who fight and persecute true Christians. The ‘revolt’, falling away, apostasy really started in the modern age on 15 January 1953 when Angelo Roncalli knelt down to the Freemason president of France, Vincent Auriol and received from him the red hat, symbol of a cardinal. This same Roncalli became Pope John XXIII in 1958, (taking the same name as the 37th Antipope John XXIII who ‘reigned’ from 1410-1415). The Masonic number is 13, and so in taking John XXIII for the second time, Satan had his number secretly shown to all satanic worshipers as X-XIII. Roncalli handed over to Satan the control of the Vatican structure – but not the Church. Jesus said: “I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build My Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Mt 16:18). The errors of Zionism and Masonry are accelerating at an alarming rate, and is reaching its climax as of 2015. I will deal with this in more detail under section on The Antichrist.

The attacks against the Church, the Holy Eucharist, traditional Catholic teachings, the family, marriage, Family Planning Association (formerly called National Birth Control Association), education, enforced acceptance of homosexual life styles, money manipulation by the international bankers, lewd television and press, manipulated voting process, are some of the examples of this ‘revolt.’ The revolt happening now, continues to accelerate, and as we will see in the next question it has been foretold of those so-called Christians: “But you stand by faith. Be not high-minded, but fear. For if God has not spared the natural branches, fear lest perhaps also He spare not you. See then the goodness and the severity of God: towards them indeed that are fallen, the severity; but towards you, the goodness of God, if you abide in goodness. Otherwise you also shall be cut off” (Rm 11:21,22).

The conversion of all Israel?
“I say then, have they so stumbled, that they should fall? God forbid! But by their offence salvation is come to the Gentiles, that they may be emulous of them. Now if the offence of them be the riches of the world and the diminution of them the riches of the Gentiles, how much more the fulness of them? For if the loss of them be the reconciliation of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?” (Rm 11:11,12,15).
It is obvious here that Jesus is delighted to receive His own people back into the fold, from whom He took His earthly heritage. Mary His Mother did say: “He has received Israel His servant, being mindful of His mercy as He spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his seed for ever” (Lk 1:54,55).
“Well, because of unbelief they were broken off. But you stand by faith” (Rm 11:20-22).
It is here that I speculate the ‘revolt’ is taking place and the numbers of ‘true Christians’ is diminishing because of disbelief in doctrine, and because of their being enamored with worldliness. Because of this apostasy, they will be cut off from grace, even as the Jews fell from grace through unbelief, but now those fallen Jews will be grafted back in. This is not necessarily a simultaneous event, but events which will and are most probably taking place at this time.

“For I would not have you ignorant, brethren, of this mystery (lest you should be wise in your own conceits) that blindness in part has happened in Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles should come in, and so all Israel should be saved, as it is written: There shall come out of Sion, He that shall deliver and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob. And this is to them My covenant, when I shall take away their sins.” (Rm 11:25-27).

Jesus is the One Who has come ‘out of Sion’ and has delivered those who accept His grace. He keeps His covenant, and so the conversion of Israel takes place, whether gradually or all of a sudden I do not know, but it does happen.

The coming out of the Ark of the Covenant?
“And when Jeremias perceived it, he blamed them, saying: The place shall be unknown, till God gather together the congregation of the people, and receive them to mercy. And we hope that God, Who has delivered His people, and has rendered to all the inheritance, and the kingdom, and the priesthood, and the sanctuary, as He promised in the law, will shortly have mercy upon us, and will gather us together from every land under heaven into the holy place. For He has delivered us out of great perils, and has cleansed the place.” (2M 2:7,17-19).

In our worldly understanding it would appear from the text: ‘The place shall be unknown, till God gather together the congregation of the people, and receive them to mercy’ that the Ark of the Covenant will come out only after all the Jews have joined with the remaining people of Christianity in the Mystical Body of Christ.

By referring to the Haydock notes in the Douay Rheims Bible we will see that St. Jerome shows, by divers examples, that this expression ‘till’ of the Evangelist was a manner of speaking usual among the Hebrews, to denote by the word until, only what is done, without any regard to the future. God said to His Divine Son: “Sit on My right hand till I make Thy enemies Thy footstool” (Psalm 109). Shall He sit no longer after His enemies are subdued?

Consequently, I believe that there will be a herald, an official messenger, a forerunner who precedes, conveys or proclaims the calling together of all professed Christendom to the battle of the ages. This herald is the seventh trumpet, and this trumpet is the Ark of the Covenant. “Behold I send My angel, and he shall prepare the way before My face. And presently the Lord, Whom you seek, and the angel of the testament, whom you desire, shall come to His temple. Behold, he comes, saith the Lord of hosts” (Mal 3:1). It is also written: “Behold I will send My angel, who shall go before thee, and keep thee in thy journey, and bring thee into the place that I have prepared” (Ex 23:20); and again: “As it is written in Isaiah the prophet: Behold I send My angel before thy face, who shall prepare the way before thee” (Mk 1:2). Remember the promise: “For the Lord God doth nothing without revealing His secret to His servants the prophets” (Am 3:7).

When Jeremiah says in the above quote: ‘And we hope that God, Who has delivered His people, and has rendered to all the inheritance, and the kingdom, and the priesthood, and the sanctuary, as He promised in the law, will shortly have mercy upon us’ this ‘hope’ is delivered to ‘all’ and I believe that ‘all’ the true believers will be joined in the battle and will have the Ark as a visible sign for gathering the believers into the one fold.

I can also state that the preparation for the recovery of the Ark of the Covenant was started in the 1980’s. The spiritual Ark is already in existence since 29 September 1998. A major portion of the physical is completed as of 2015.

The arrival of THE Antichrist?
“I considered the horns, and behold another little horn sprung out of the midst of them and three of the first horns were plucked up at the presence thereof, and behold eyes like the eyes of a man were in this horn, and a mouth speaking great things” (Dn 7:8).
If we can discover who or what is this ‘little horn’ we will be well on the way to discover the timing of the four questions asked above. I am going to be bold here and say that the three horns are the systems of Zionism, Freemasonry and Communism. I am going to go further out on to the limb and say that the ‘little horn’ is a Jewish politician, from the tribe of Dan (which tribe is excluded from the tribes of Israel mentioned in Apoc 7:4-8). He is ‘little’ because he is presently not well known, and because he is in a rather inauspicious position – but he will soon strike and proclaim himself the ‘Messiah.’ The Zionist and Jewish wealth of the world will pour into his coffers at unprecedented rates. He will take full authority over the above ‘three horns’ and the rest of the world to do as he pleases. He is ruthless personified. He is Antichrist.

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for unless there come a revolt first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition who opposes and is lifted up above all that is called God or that is worshipped, so that he sits in the temple of God, showing himself as if he were God” (2Th 2:3,4).

Jesus Himself warned us: “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves” (Mt 7:15).
St. Paul warned us: “I know that after my departure ravening wolves will enter in among you, not sparing the flock” (Ac 20:29).
St. Peter warned us as he praised the writings of St. Paul and how those who fall away “…in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things in which are certain things hard to be understood, which the unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, to their own destruction. You therefore, brethren, knowing these things before, take heed, lest being led aside by the error of the unwise, you fall from your own steadfastness. But grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To Him be glory both now and unto the day of eternity, Amen” (2P 3:16-18).

There is a curious note in St. Paul’s writings in which he speaks of ‘my gospel’ and of ‘our gospel.’ Judge for yourself and see what you come up with. Remember that St. Paul admonished the Galatians: “I wonder that you are so soon removed from Him that called you into the grace of Christ, unto another gospel, which is not another, only there are some that trouble you and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from Heaven, preach a gospel to you besides that which we have preached to you, let him be anathema. As we said before, so now I say again: If any one preach to you a gospel, besides that which you have received, let him be anathema” (Ga 1:6-9). He then goes on to say: “For I give you to understand, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man, for neither did I receive it of man nor did I learn it but by the revelation of Jesus Christ(Ga 1:11,12). So then it seems to me that there were errors preached which were contrary to what Jesus taught us but also what Saints Peter and Paul were preaching and we are being warned to be alert!

Listen to what St Paul says: “Remember you not that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now you know what withholds, that he may be revealed in his time…Be mindful that the Lord Jesus Christ is risen again from the dead, of the seed of David, according to my gospel…” (2T 2:5,6,8). “In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ, according to my gospel…Now to Him that is able to establish you, according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery which was kept secret from eternity” (Rm 2:16; 16:25). “For our gospel hath not been unto you in word only, but in power also: and in the Holy Ghost and in much fulness, as you know what manner of men we have been among you for your sakes” (1Th 1:5). “And if our gospel be also hid, it is hid to them that are lost…” (2Co 4:3). “Whereunto also He hath called you by our gospel, unto the purchasing of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ” (2Th 2:13).

Now let us delve into the possible identity of THE Antichrist and THE False Prophet as they go together – at least they go to Hell together! (Apoc 19:20).

“For the mystery of iniquity already works, only that he who now holds do hold, until he be taken out of the way” (2Th 2:7).
What is this ‘iniquity’? It is both temporal and spiritual, both an attack against the material lives and the spiritual well being of all humanity. It is an attack by an organized system against all aspects of the lives of human beings living on the face of the earth today. The system is Zionism, Freemasonry and Communism. Their single emerging leader is the ‘little horn’, yet to be identified. The one who holds is the Vicar of Christ, and he held until 1958, at which time the Freemason John XXIII took control of the Papacy, and the actions of John XXIII have never been condemned by any of the succeeding pontiffs. On 28 April 1738, Pope Clement XII declared in his encyclical ‘In Eminenti,’ condemnation of Freemasonry, calling it the Synagogue of Satan, and excommunicated any Catholic who joined. This act of a prelate of the Church kneeling down to a Satanic Institution Master disqualifies him from serving in the Church, and according to the Canon Law 2335 which was in force at that time reads: “Persons joining associations of the Masonic sect or any others of the same kind which plot against the Church and legitimate civil authorities contract ‘ipso facto’ excommunication simply reserved to the Apostolic See.” (‘Ipso facto’ – means by that very fact or act). Through Zionism and Communism, Ecclesiastical Masonry took control of the Vatican, and as such, were able to change the Canon Law to eliminate their name from direct condemnation. With the acknowledgment as satan as his worshipful master, Angelo Roncalli was not only a false prophet, a heretic, but also was ‘ipso facto’ excommunicated, and as such his elevation to cardinal, and subsequent election to be the Vicar of Christ on earth as Pope John XXIII is null and void. Furthermore, under Angelo Roncalli, also known as ‘Pope John XXIII’ there has arisen, through the Second Vatican Council, a false religion which has attempted to replaced the truth as taught by Jesus and His Apostles. The House of God is fragmented and given over to ‘the rights of man,’ it is now dedicated to the honor of man, not our Almighty God and Saviour. New age, crystals, zodiac signs, pornography, homosexuality and same sex unions, promoted by the ecumenical church of error, have stolen very many souls from the once Holy Roman Catholic Church. So many things are wrong that the whole Roman structure has failed, is failing, and goes the way of Shiloh, and the old fallen temple of Jerusalem. In short, the Vicar of Christ ‘has been taken out of the way’ in 1958!

“And then that wicked one shall be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus shall kill with the spirit of His mouth and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming, him whose coming is according to the working of Satan, in all power and signs and lying wonders, And in all seduction of iniquity to them that perish, because they receive not the love of the truth, that they might be saved…” (2Th 2:8,9,10).
At the present time the ‘wicked one’ is the system of world government in which sin is extolled in public and private life, in the press, in finance, and in every walk of life. Truth is denied, and like Pilate the rulers of the world say ‘What is truth?’ However, the believing Christian will be aware that the evil system breeds ‘the man of sin,’ and so be alerted that the Antichrist is lurking somewhere near.
“Therefore God shall send them the operation of error, to believe lying: That all may be judged who have not believed the truth but have consented to iniquity” (2Th 2:10,11).
This is obvious as the world population in general accept the dictates of those in charge of their daily lives, they do not want to give up the ‘easy life, the good life’ and accept the Cross of Christ. “Therefore, brethren, stand fast and hold the traditions, which you have learned, whether by word or by our epistle” (2Th 2:14).

“And I saw a beast coming up out the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns, ten diadems, and upon his heads, names of blasphemy” (Apoc 13:1).
‘And I saw a beast coming up out the sea’: The ‘sea’ is a spiritual term which is sometimes used to denote ‘many nations,’ and in this case could mean the United Nations. It could also mean the Mediterranean Sea, which washes the shores of modern day Israel and Palestine.
The seven heads represents the beast having complete supremacy over the whole world.
The ten horns represents complete control over all communication, like news print, radio, TV, and internet in the world.
The ten diadems is the Antichrist commandments replacing the Ten Commandments of God with Satan’s own diabolical commandments.
The names of blasphemy are his seven deadly sins of Pride, Lust, Greed, Anger, Sloth, Envy, and Gluttony violate the word of God and the seven cardinal virtues of Faith, Hope, Charity, Prudence, Fortitude, Justice and Temperance.

In summary, the Antichrist is the beast coming up out of many nations, is the political leader appointed by the Devil to set up his diabolical kingdom of hatred and violence in the world, to bring all humanity into subjection to his evil works. This diabolical man is now in the world (as of 2015), and will soon make his ascent to the control room of evil.

In order to identify this beast, we must look at:
a). Who in the world today control all the elements of money, political appointments, at each national level, as well as in globalist institutions?
b). Who controls what people will hear on radio, see on television, or read in national papers or internet?
c). Who really in the world has the power to deny Christ, and object when someone denies their anti -Christ religion?
The answer is simple – Israel of the Israelis, not Israelites. “For all are not Israelites that are of Israel. Neither are all they that are the seed of Abraham, children: but in Isaac shall your seed be called.” (Rm 9:6,7).

“And the beast which I saw was like to a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him his own strength and great power” (Apoc 13:2).
The ‘dragon’ is Satan himself. The leopard crouches in hiddenness, ready to pounce at the most opportune time for him, with powerful ability to pull apart like a bear, and with the roar of his ‘lion’ voice, to strike fear into all who oppose him, thus destroying all his enemies. He is the small horn who overcomes all other would be supremacists on earth. Zionism/Masonry/Communism in all their forms is the deadly combination and the most important tool and weapon of Satan. Who best describes this leopard, bear and lion? Who sits in the background commanding all leaders to obey their money? The Israeli Zionist lobby in every country of the world.

When Jacob (whose name was changed to Israel by the Lord) was dying, he prophesied over his twelve sons. Of Dan he said: “Dan shall judge his people like another tribe in Israel. Let Dan be a snake in the way, a serpent in the path, that bites the horse’s heels, that his rider may fall backward. I will look for Thy salvation, O Lord” (Gn 49:16-18). This is a strange verse. Consider the part where he says: Dan shall judge his people like another tribe in Israel, which in fact it did through Samson who was a Danite. Let Dan be a snake in the way, a serpent in the path, that bites the horse’s heels, that his rider may fall backward. The snake at the horse’s heels is a warning to trusting and unsuspecting the people who allow the snake entry unto their path!

In the Apocalypse it is written: “And I heard the number of them that were signed, an hundred forty-four thousand were signed, of every tribe of the children of Israel” (Apoc 7:4), except in the naming of the tribes, Dan is omitted! Why? Because the Antichrist is from this tribe of Israel. Obviously the Jews will follow a Jew who is Antichrist. We must watch for a relatively unknown Jew from the tribe of Dan to make his ascent into the control room of diabolical power. Jewish obsession with control and power is age-old and scriptural. Remember the High Priest Caiphas who claimed that it was better for one man (Jesus Christ) to die for the people than the whole nation perish. (Jn 11:49,50). The nation which crucified Christ, died themselves, and now are the kingmakers of the world. The beast which was dead, is alive and thriving, ‘his death’s wound was healed, and all the earth was in admiration after the beast.’ (Apoc 13:12).

Jesus Himself said: “I am come in the Name of My Father, and you receive Me not: if another shall come in his own name, him you will receive…Think not that I will accuse you to the Father. There is one that accuses you, Moses, in whom you trust.” (Jn 5:43,45).

“For many walk, of whom I have told you often (and now tell you weeping) that they are enemies of the cross of Christ, whose end is destruction: whose God is their belly: and whose glory is in their shame: who mind earthly things” (Phil 3:18,19).

“And he opened his mouth unto blasphemies against God, to blaspheme His Name, and His Tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven” (Apoc 13:6).
Throughout the world today, we hear blasphemies on TV, in movies, in public assemblies, and in government agencies. In co-operation with the False Prophet condemnation is made of religious assemblies, particularly ‘Christians,’ and more particularly against ‘Catholics.’

Remember that Eucharistic man is the fulfillment of Christianity, just as Christianity was the fulfillment of Judaism, and in the fulfilling of the Seven Sacraments, Eucharistic man receives the very fulness of God, and God dwells in him, and has His Tabernacle in him and with him. This is the ‘Revelation of Jesus Christ’ as was referred to in the first five words of the Apocalypse 1:1. It must be stated here that in the parable of the sower, Judaism is the thirty fold; Christianity is the sixty fold; and Eucharistedness is the one hundred fold. (Mt 13:8).

It is in Eucharistic man that the prayer of Jesus is fulfilled, “Father, Thy Kingdom come…on earth, as it is in Heaven.” Why else would the Antichrist open ‘his mouth unto blasphemies against God, to blaspheme His Name, and His Tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven’? Consider for a moment your concept of Heaven. You rightly think that it is ‘up there’ somewhere! After all, Jesus ascended into Heaven, (Lk 24:51) and it also says: “No man has ascended into Heaven, but He that descended from Heaven, the Son of man who is in Heaven.” (Jn 3:13) If Heaven is ‘up there,’ then what good would it do to blaspheme ‘them that dwell in heaven’? Why would they blaspheme His Name, if His Name were up in Heaven? Why would they blaspheme His Tabernacle if it were in Heaven, ‘up there’? The answer is very simple, and taken on faith, and in faith, Eucharistic man is on earth, terra firma, with the promised completeness of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, for Heaven is now joined to earth in the Eternal Virgin Eucharistic Church. This ‘heaven’ is the Catholic Church which defeats Satan.

Having started this article by asking what is the order of the events, I now speculate as follows:

1. The ‘revolt’ – ‘falling away’ – ‘great apostasy’?
2. The arrival of THE Antichrist?
3. The coming out of the Ark of the Covenant?
4. The conversion of all Israel?

Points 1 and 4 are in my opinion correct, 2 and 3 may be reversed, but their timing is very close together.
For more information on some of these points, read: ‘Understanding the Apocalypse’. www.kingshipofchrist.org

Make all things New

It is necessary that God must “make all things new(Apoc 21:5), as the Psalmist prophesied: “Thou shalt send forth Thy Spirit, and they shall be created, and Thou shalt renew the face of the earth. May the glory of the Lord endure for ever, the Lord shall rejoice in His works” (Ps 103:30,31).

This renewal has already taken place as foretold by Daniel the prophet: “I beheld till thrones were placed, and the Ancient of Days sat, His garment was white as snow, and the hair of His head like clean wool: His throne like flames of fire, the wheels of it like a burning fire…I beheld, therefore, in the vision of the night, and lo, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and he came even to the Ancient of Days, and they presented him before Him. And He gave him power, and glory, and a kingdom: and all peoples, tribes, and tongues shall serve him: his power is an everlasting power that shall not be taken away, and his kingdom that shall not be destroyed” (Dn 7:9,13,14).

This event has taken place withing the last thirty years. The ‘one like the Son of man’ is Eucharistic man, to whom “the Lord has sworn, and He will not repent: Thou art a priest for ever according to the order of Melchizedek(Ps 109:4). When it says ‘they presented him’ it must be understood that the ‘they’ are Mary the Mother of Jesus, and Joseph, the foster father of Jesus. They reason these two presented him is because if either of them had said ‘no’ to the immaculate conception of Jesus, then Jesus could not have come to save us. If the ‘him’ whom they presented had not said ‘yes’ to the request of Christ Jesus to leave all behind and come follow Him, then this presentation could not have taken place.

When God gave him ‘power, and glory, and a kingdom…that shall not be taken away’ he (Eucharistic man) was instructed and given the very power and glory of God. In truth, these attributes have no human means of measurement, they are Divinely supernatural, and as such immeasurable! This Eucharistic man has achieved through the grace of God, that unity which Jesus prayed to the Father: “that they may be one, as We also are” (Jn 17:11). This oneness is the perfection of the Divine nature of God in the human nature, which we define as Eucharistic man. This power then is what Saint John wrote about: “I saw heaven opened and behold a white horse, and he that sat upon him was called faithful and true, and with justice does he judge and fight…And the armies that are in heaven followed him on white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean” (Apoc 19:11,14). Jesus said: “I tell you of a truth: There are some standing here that shall not taste death till they see the Kingdom of God(Lk 9:27). Saint John did not see death until he saw the events of the Apocalypse take place.

With the arrival of the armies that are in heaven, begins the greatest evangelization in the history of the world. The heavenly bodies will look like ‘normal’ people. They will be everywhere and visible when it is necessary to be seen, either by friend or foe. Remember: “Hospitality do not forget, for by this some, being not aware of it, have entertained angels(Hb 13:2).

The angels and saints in Heaven will be released upon the earth (some unto life everlasting), as all of hell (others unto reproach) as foretold by Daniel: “At that time shall Michael rise up, the great prince, who stands for the children of thy people: and a time shall come, such as never was from the time that nations began, even until that time. And at that time shall thy people be saved, every one that shall be found written in the book. And many of those that sleep in the dust of the earth, shall awake: some unto life everlasting, and others unto reproach, to see it always. But they that are learned, shall shine as the brightness of the firmament: and they that instruct many to justice, as stars for all eternity” (Dn 12:1-3).

You may ask as Daniel did of the angel who spoke to him: “How long shall it be to the end of these wonders? When the scattering of the band of the holy people shall be accomplished, all these things shall be finished…Many shall be chosen, and made white, and shall be tried as fire: and the wicked shall deal wickedly, and none of the wicked shall understand, but the learned shall understand. And from the time when the continual sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination unto desolation shall be set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred ninety days” (Dn 12:6,7,10,11).

If you wonder if ‘the time when the continual sacrifice shall be taken away’ has happened, then look at the Vatican II Mass, and you will see and understand.

God had to do a new thing.

God has already prepared the new thing.

“Behold, all things are made new, these words are most faithful and true” (Apoc 21:5).

 

The Mystical Incarnation

First let us look at the meaning of ‘mystical incarnation.’ The term ‘mystical’ signifies having a spiritual existence that transcends human understanding. It is neither apparent to the senses nor obvious to the intelligence. It is an individual direct communion with and/or in God.

The term ‘incarnation’ describes the union of the Divinity of God in human nature. In our Christian theology, the Incarnation is the embodiment of God the Son in human flesh in Jesus Christ. The Angel Gabriel said to Mary: “The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee and the power of the Most High shall overshadow thee, and therefore also the Holy which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God(Lk 1:35).

Each person should strive for this individual mystical incarnation “which is Christ, in you the hope of glory(Col 1:27). We wrote in a previous article that this mystical incarnation already took place when God created ‘man’ in His Heart, in eternity: “The Lord (God the Father) said to my Lord (Jesus Christ) …from the womb (Mary, Mother of Jesus Christ) before the day star I begot Thee” (Ps 109:1,3). In this begetting, we were mystically conceived. This conception is further explained by Saint Peter when he describes it as ‘an inheritance, incorruptible, and undefiled’: “Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers dispersed through Pontus, Cappadocia, Asia and Bithynia, elect, according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, unto the sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the Blood of Jesus Christ. Grace unto you and peace be multiplied. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who according to His great mercy has regenerated us unto a lively hope, by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead: unto an inheritance, incorruptible, and undefiled and that cannot fade, reserved in Heaven for you, who, by the power of God, are kept by faith unto salvation, ready to be revealed in the last time” (1P 1:1-5).

Saint Peter goes on to explain this mystical incarnation as the unity of the Divine power and Divine nature of God in our human bodies. He insists that this gift and grace should be fulfilled in us providing that we have the faith and keep the Divine precepts: “Grace to you and peace be accomplished in the knowledge of God and of Christ Jesus our Lord. As all things of His Divine power which appertain to life and godliness are given us through the knowledge of Him Who has called us by His own proper glory and virtue, by Whom He has given us most great and precious promises: that by these you may be made partakers of the Divine nature: flying the corruption of that concupiscence which is in the world. Wherefore, brethren, labour the more, that by good works you may make sure your calling and election, for doing these things, you shall not sin at any time. For so an entrance shall be ministered to you abundantly into the ever-lasting Kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ” (2P 1:2-4,10,11).

It is in this accomplishment by the grace of God that we can live in His Divine promises “of power, and of love, and of sobriety” (1T 1:7).

What happened before the beginning of the world?

What was God doing before ‘the beginning’ when He created? Jesus said: “Father…Thou hast loved Me before the creation of the world” (Jn 17:24). Why does Saint Peter speak of this same Jesus Christ as “foreknown indeed before the foundation of the world…”? (1P 1:20). How was He ‘foreknown’? Why does Saint Paul speak of promises given to us “before the times of the world”? (2T 1:9; Tt 1:2). What were the promises?

If we start with the first words given to us in Holy Scripture, we will begin to see the intention and the plan of our Creator: “In the beginning God created heaven and earth, and the earth was void and empty, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the Spirit of God moved over the waters” (Gn 1:1,2).

When God created ‘heaven’ He also created the ‘heavenlies’ that is He created the angels. But before this He created ‘man’ in His Heart, in eternity, as recorded: “The Lord (God the Father) said to my Lord (Jesus Christ) …from the womb (Mary, Mother of Jesus Christ) before the day star (the fallen angel Lucifer) I begot Thee” (Ps 109:1,3). It is here that we see as we look at ‘eternity’ before He created ‘heaven and earth’ we can understand that quite a lot happened in the eternal plan of God before the ‘beginning.’ “The Lord possessed me in the beginning of His ways, before He made any thing from the beginning” (Pr 8:22).

Almighty God, the Creator of heaven, heavenlies, and earth, created man in His heart in eternity. This first ‘man’ in His heart was Mary, the Mother of the Son of Man. The Son of Man (Jesus) was begot in her immaculate heart before the angels: “And thou Bethlehem Ephrata, art a little one among the thousands of Juda, out of thee shall He come forth unto Me that is to be the ruler in Israel, and His going forth is from the beginning, from the days of eternity” (Mi 5:2). That is from the days of eternity before the beginning of creation.

It is in the immaculate womb of Mary that all of mankind was conceived in the heart of God the Father, in eternity. “For as the woman is of the man, so also is the man by the woman, but all things of God” (1Co 11:12). This conception of ‘all’ was every human being from Adam and Eve and all their generations down to this present day and those who come after us. This is why we call Mary, the Mother of Creation, and Eve “the mother of all the living(Gn 3:20). Mary by this definition would be the mother of Eve and Adam. In time, God would place the seed of Mary into the womb of Anna, wife of Joachim, and then Holy Mary would bring forth from her immaculate womb, Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the world.

God had very special and glorious plans for us: “He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and immaculate in His sight in charity” (Ep 1:4). It was after we were conceived in His heart that God created the angels on ‘day one’ of creation. It must be understood that the angels did not know what was in the heart of God the Father when they were first created. God divided the angels them into nine different choirs: Angels (Mt 26:53); Archangels (Tb 12:15; Jude 1:9); Cherubim (Gn 3:24); Seraphim (Is 6:1-3); Thrones (Ps 44:7); Virtues (Ep 1:21); Princes (Col 1:16); Dominations (Col 1:16); Powers (Col 1:16).

God assigned duties to all His heavenlies into three major areas; God’s heavenly court, the cosmos and the earth. It is after they were created and assigned responsibilities that God announced that He was going to make a creature called ‘man’ less than the angels, and that the angels would assist man to come to spiritual perfection in God. Here is when Lucifer revolted and declared that he would not serve man, but demanded that man would serve him. There was war in Heaven and Lucifer who was now called Satan and the Devil, was cast out of Heaven and his place was found no more therein (Apoc 12:7,8).

After Lucifer and his rebellious angels were kicked out of Heaven, God assigned angels to guard and assist man the moment that man was conceived in the womb of his earthly mother. These ‘guardian angels’ were ‘specialized’ in the various skills, traits and vocations of their charges. Consequently, every human when born was ‘protected’ and ‘counseled’ by his own individual angel who is equipped to assist man accomplish his function in life, and when life was over to gain re-entry back into the glorious heavenly bliss from whence he came in the first place.

During the time of ‘man’ being in the heart of God the Father in eternity, and before he was conceived in the womb, each individual man (male and female) was instructed by God on heavenly and earthly life. This is why we sometimes say that we know something which we had never heard of before, because God did not send us into the world without having given us enlightments ‘before the foundation of the world,’ and before being sent to earth where the adversary the devil was waiting to destroy man. Isaiah records: “Remember the former age, for I am God, and there is no god beside, neither is there the like to Me, Who show from the beginning the things that shall be at last, and from ancient times the things that as yet are not done…” (Is 46:9,10). ‘The things that are yet not done’ are those things which are necessary for mortal man to take back all the kingdoms of the world which the devil stole from Adam (Lk 4:6). Jesus said: “Come, ye blessed of My Father, possess you the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world” (Mt 25:34).

The inspiration or enlightenment was given to us by God before the first day of creation. It was on the first day that God separated ‘light’ from ‘darkness,’ that is good from evil: “God said: Be light made. And light was made. And God saw the light that it was good; and He divided the light from the darkness. And He called the light Day, and the darkness Night; and there was evening and morning one day” (Gn 1:3-5). Jesus said: “Yet a little while, the light is among you, walk whilst you have the light, and the darkness overtake you not. And he that walks in darkness knows not whither be goes” (Jn 12:35).

In order to explain my point further about our bring instructed in eternity in the heart of the Father, let us examine Genesis a little further: “And God said: Let there be lights made in the firmament of heaven, to divide the day and the night, and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years to shine in the firmament of heaven, and to give light upon the earth, and it was so done. And God made two great lights, a greater light to rule the day; and a lesser light to rule the night, and the stars. And He set them in the firmament of heaven to shine upon the earth, and to rule the day and the night, and to divide the light and the darkness. And God saw that it was good. And the evening and morning were the fourth day(Gn 1:14-19). On the first day God created light, which moved from east to west, by its rising and setting, and there was evening and morning one day – the first day. But on the fourth day He made two great lights, a greater light (the sun) to rule the day; and a lesser light (the moon) to rule the night.

Since Solomon says:“What is it that has been? the same thing that shall be. What is it that has been done? the same that shall be done. Nothing under the sun is new, neither is any man able to say: Behold this is new, for it has already gone before in the ages that were before us” (Ec 1:9,10). Since there is ‘nothing new under the sun’, then what happened before the creation of the sun? There is nothing new under the sun because we were given everything in the heart of the Father in eternity! “By faith we understand that the world was framed by the word of God, that from invisible things visible things might be made” (Hb 11:3). Speaking of these hidden things in eternity, Jesus quoted Isaiah: “I will open My mouth in parables, I will utter things hidden from the foundation of the world” (Mt 13:35). If ‘things were hidden from the foundation of the world,’ then those things had to be given to us in eternity before the sun and the moon and stars, that is before creation in the beginning.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and God was the Word” (Jn 1:1). It is stated in some bible translations that ‘the Word was God.’ Such a statement is not informed by knowledge. God is everything that is good. His Word is good, because God is the Word, and His word creates. To refute this or degrade the word in any way is to become and enemy to God. All things were created by His Word, and we rejoice with the Psalmist in saying: “Praise ye the Lord…for He spoke, and they were made, He commanded, and they were created. He has established them for ever, and for ages of ages. He has made a decree, and it shall not pass away” (Ps 148:1-5).

We had a full ‘life’ before the creation of the world, where God prepared us for ‘mortal life’ before He sent us to earth. In this confidence and certitude “Let us be glad and rejoice and give glory to Him” (Apoc 19:7).

Who shall be Priests in the Eternal Virgin Eucharist Church?

What is the Eternal Virgin Eucharist Church?

The Eternal Virgin Eucharist Church is the completion of the promise made at the beginning of creation on the sixth day: “Let us make man to our image and likeness” (Gn 1:26). We have said very often before that the fulfillment of Judaism is Christianity, and the fulfillment of Christianity is Eucharistedness. This Eucharistedness can only be found in the Eternal Virgin Eucharistic Church, fulfilling the promise in Revelation which Jesus gave to us: “He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches: To him that overcomes I will give the hidden manna and will give him a white counter, and in the counter, a new name written, which no man knows but he that receives it” (Apoc 2:17). The ‘hidden manna’ is Holy Eucharist which can only be received under certain condition of faith. The ‘white counter’ is freedom from previous entanglements and observations.

Who can enter in?
All people under the sun who are baptized and want to be born again in the ‘new man’ with the ‘new name’, in the ‘new creation’, in the newness of life. The ‘new name’ is ‘Eucharistic man’ who is the fulfillment of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, Who arose as Christ Jesus, the New Man, the First born of the New Creation. In this promise we are assured that if we believe totally without wavering, we know that “we have been planted together in the likeness of His death, we shall be also in the likeness of His resurrection” (Rm 6:5). This ‘likeness of His resurrection’ is Eucharistic man, the “new man…who according to God is created in justice and holiness of truth” (Ep 2:15; 4:24).

This newness for entry comes with certain simple but godly conditions: “The sure foundation of God stands firm, having this seal: the Lord knows who are His; and let every one depart from iniquity who names the Name of the Lord. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth: and some indeed unto honour, but some unto dishonour. If any man therefore shall cleanse himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified and profitable to the Lord, prepared unto every good work. But flee you youthful desires, and pursue justice, faith, charity and peace with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart” (2T 2:19-22).

Again, this newness is what has been promised and is now being fulfilled: “He that sat on the throne, said: Behold, I make all things new. And He said to me: Write. For these words are most faithful and true. And He said to me: It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him that thirsts, I will give of the fountain of the water of life, freely. He that shall overcome shall possess these things, and I will be his God, and he shall be My son” (Apoc 21:5-7).

Entry into the Eternal Virgin Eucharist Church means that we have to leave all things behind, and ‘all things’ means ‘all things.’ Jesus said: “Amen, I say to you, there is no man that has left home or parents or brethren or wife or children, for the Kingdom of God’s sake, who shall not receive much more in this present time, and in the world to come Life Everlasting(Lk 18:29,30). Leaving all behind is not a destitution in the spiritual or material sense. It is leaving behind the essence of uncertainty so that we “may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings: being made conformable to His death, if by any means I may attain to the resurrection which is from the dead. Not as though I had already attained, or were already perfect: but I follow after, if I may by any means apprehend, wherein I am also apprehended by Christ Jesus. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended, but one thing I do: forgetting the things that are behind and stretching forth myself to those that are before, I press towards the mark, to the prize of the supernal vocation of God in Christ Jesus” (Phil 3:10-14). This leaving all behind is more fully described as entering into the fulness of God. “That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened by His Spirit with might unto the inward man, that Christ may dwell by faith in your hearts that, being rooted and founded in charity, you may be able to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth, to know also the charity of Christ, which surpasses all knowledge: that you may be filled unto all the fulness of God. Now to Him Who is able to do all things more abundantly than we desire or understand, according to the power that works in us: to Him be glory in the Church and in Christ Jesus, unto all generations, world without end. Amen” (Ep 3:16-21).

We should not have any fear in taking this step into the Third and Final Testament: “For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of sobriety. Be not you therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but labour with the gospel, according to the power of God , Who has delivered us and called us by His holy calling, not according to our own works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the times of the world, but is now made manifest by the illumination of our Saviour Jesus Christ, Who has destroyed death and has brought to light, life and incorruption by the gospel(2T 1:7-10).

Who shall be Priests in the Eternal Virgin Eucharist Church?
Jesus said: “Amen I say to you, that you who have followed Me, in the regeneration, when the Son of man shall sit on the seat of His majesty, you also shall sit on twelve seats judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And every one that has left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands for My Name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall possess Life Everlasting. And many that are first shall be last, and the last shall be first” (Mt 19:28-30).

When He says that ‘every one that has left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands for My Name’s sake’ He did not express any exclusions. Therefore the priesthood in the Eternal Virgin Eucharistic Church follows this command. ‘Every one that has ‘left wife’ means celibacy. It means that a married man who in consenting with his wife may leave house, children and lands for the sake of Christ Jesus. We input our personal desire here that the ideal ‘married’ man would be over 60 years of age. His family must be left in a self-sufficient state to carry on in his absence.

All candidates for the priesthood must be either single, or if married, must be blameless, the husband of one wife, sober, prudent, of good behaviour, chaste, given to hospitality, a teacher, not given to wine, no striker, but modest, not quarrelsome, not covetous, but one that rules well his own house, having his children in subjection with all chastity…Not a neophyte (that is, one lately baptized, a young convert), must have a good testimony of them who are without, chaste, not double tongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre, holding the mystery of faith in a pure conscience, having no crime. For they that have ministered well shall purchase to themselves a good degree and much confidence in the faith which is in Christ Jesus (1T 3:1-13).

In addition to the above, no man will be engaged in commerce or entangled with worldly income as St. Paul writes: “No man, being a soldier to God, entangles himself with secular businesses that he may please Him to whom he has engaged himself” (2T 2:4).

The preparation for the Eucharistic Priesthood is completed and all textbooks are in readiness. The fundamental or foundation book is the Holy Bible. We use only the Douay Rheims version, all 73 books: “All scripture, inspired of God, is profitable to teach, to reprove, to correct, to instruct in justice” (2T 3:16). All priests must be completely conversant in Holy Writ: “Carefully study to present yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth” (2T 2:15).

The Eucharistic Priest is priest of God: “If then any be in Christ a new creature, the old things are passed away. Behold all things are made new. But all things are of God, Who has reconciled us to Himself by Christ and has given to us the ministry of reconciliation” (2Co 5:17,18).

The Priests will not condemn any religion. Will not condemn any of the four divided houses of Christianity: Roman Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox or Coptic, as all these call themselves ‘catholic.’ The Eucharistic Church is Catholic, but without any prefix like Roman or Episcopal, or Orthodox, or Coptic. We must bring all who believe in the fulness of Christ into the new Garden of Eden, the Kingdom of God on earth (Mt 6:10). This is not an easy task: “All that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution” (2T 3:12). Regardless of the trials and tribulations to come: “Hold the form of sound words which you have heard of me, in faith and in the love which is in Christ Jesus. Keep the good thing committed to thy trust by the Holy Ghost Who dwells in us. Labour as a good soldier of Christ Jesus” (2T1:13,14).

“Now to the king of ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen” (1T 1:17).

Call no man father

This article is in response to someone whom I will call (AYZ) who wrote to me stating that I should call no one ‘father’ quoting: “First, I don’t know if you have read Mathew 23:9- And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.” He went on to ridicule ‘catholic’ and in particular ‘Roman Catholic.’ Here then is a summary of my reply to him: There are a number of religions in ‘Christianity’ who call themselves ‘Catholic’ in addition to the Roman Catholic, like the Orthodox, and Anglican, and Episcopalian, and also two surprises – the Coptic (which means Egypt), and Lutheran. The word catholic means ‘universal,’ and such term came from the Gospel of Saint Mark: Jesus said to the disciples: “Go ye into the whole world, and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mk 16:15). In Saint Matthew it is recorded: “Going therefore, teach ye all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you, and behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world”(Mt 28:19). The term Greek Catholic Orthodox, Roman Catholic, came after the various splinter groups were set up in ‘Christianity.’ It is more proper to say ‘Catholic,’ (as in the original Christianity) rather than ‘catholic’ when describing or claiming a religion. A true Catholic is a devout practitioner of the Ten Commandments and a follower of the Gospels, and the Letters of the New Testament which outline the Seven Sacraments of the Church to which I am obedient. I believe that the Second Vatican Council changed the Roman church to become as low as a Protestant church. I see very little difference between the Roman, Lutheran, Baptist, or all the 1,000 different ‘christian’ churches today. Well did Isaiah lament: “All we like sheep have gone astray, every one has turned aside into his own way…” (Is 53:6). The Vatican II Council hijacked the structure, but could not hijack the faith handed down to me by my father and his fathers. This was ‘the faith of our fathers’ to which I will be true until death. This then brings me to the next part of his letter: “We must follow Christ, who is the Word of God made flesh, and in turn follow what the Holy Bible says and call on our Father God YHWH to interpret it for us if we do not understand. All in the name of Jesus Christ. (John 16:23)”. “And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: I am the Lord that appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, by the Name of God Almighty, and My Name ADONAI I did not show them” (Ex 6:2,3). The name Adonai, which is in the Hebrew text, is that most proper name of God, which signifies His Eternal, Self-existent Being: ‘I AM WHO AM. HE WHO IS.’ (Ex 3:14), which in our every day language means : Independent, Infinite, without beginning, end, or change; and the Source of all other beings. Out of reverence the Jews never pronounce this Name; but, instead of It, whenever it occurs in the Bible, they read Adonai, which signifies the Lord; and, therefore, they put the points or vowels, which belong to the name Adonai, to the four letters of that other ineffable name ‘YHWH,’ which is Jod, He, Vau, He. Hence some moderns have framed the name Jehovah, or Yahweh, unknown to all the ancients, whether Jews or Christians; for the true pronunciation of the name, which is in the Hebrew text, by long disuse, is now quite lost. I would say that it would be best to stay with the original Jews as given to us by the early Church, and not one of the errant translations which have sprung up with the advent of Protestantism. Satan has used the divided church to build his own tower of Babel of bibles. My strong recommendation would be for you to find a Douay Rheims Version, and use it. You will be surprised to see how many errors there are in the modern day ‘bibles,’ and if you can accept, that even in the very early Church, there were dissensions about the books in the Bible, some of the Jewish converts (mostly Pharisee converts) wanting to stay with the Hebrew Canon, the rest wanted to add the ‘Deutero-Canonical’ seven books, plus 4 chapters, plus 70 verses missing in the post 1521 bibles of Luther and others. He goes on: “WHat is in the Holy Bible must be done as God’s Holy Spirit reveals it to us so that we may be Disciples of Christ or Followers of the Word of God.” You are correct in this statement, and without a doubt we must adhere to all that is written: “Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions, which you have learned, whether by word or by our epistle” (2Th 2:14). The word ‘tradition’ is greatly maligned and misunderstood. The unwritten traditions which we have received, handed down from the apostles, and the early fathers of the Church, are to be received with the same power and effect as the written word. Returning to the question of calling no one on earth ‘father,’ it is best that we look at the entire statement made by Jesus: “But be not you called Rabbi, for One is your Master, and all you are brethren. And call none your father upon earth, for One is your Father, Who is in Heaven. Neither be ye called masters, for One is your Master, Christ(Mt 23:8-10). The meaning is, that our Father in Heaven is incomparably more to be regarded, than any father upon earth, and no master is to be followed, who would lead us away from Christ. But this does not hinder us from calling our parents ‘father’ and ‘mother.’ On the contrary we are by the law of God to have a due respect both for our parents, and our spiritual fathers, and for our school masters and teachers. This name ‘father’ as used by the Roman Catholic, Anglican, Episcopal, Orthodox, and Coptic churches is a title of dignity, the same as ‘President,’ or ‘Your Honor’ in the Courts of Law, etc. This then brings us to the question of Master, Teacher, Father. ‘One is your Master,’ or Teacher, Who is the Christ. There was supposed to be under Him one Vicar, Peter, and after him, the successors of Peter, who with all their subordinates would teach the one and the same doctrine in every part of the world. But starting in the late 400’s with the Coptic breakaway, and then with the multiplicity of cults and sects, which every day are dividing and subdividing into fresh cults and sects, no two leaders can be found teaching exactly the same doctrine in all points. Each is not only allowed, but expected to follow his own private spirit, and to build a creed based upon his own interpretation of Scripture. This is the error which you (XYZ) are promoting when you say: ‘and in turn follow what the Holy Bible says and call on our Father God YHWH to interpret it for us if we do not understand.’ You are not in the truth! You are with those who do not know the truth. They do not teach the truth! How can they teach truth when they do not have a complete or even a true Bible? The Catholic Church gave us the Bible, the Bible did not give us the Church! As far as ‘call no man your father upon the earth’ you must read what Saint Paul says: “I write not these things to confound you, but I admonish you as my dearest children. For if you have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet not many fathers, for in Christ Jesus, by the gospel, I have begotten you” (1Co 4:14,15). Saint Paul refers to his sons Timothy, Titus, what did they all him – ‘uncle’? Did not Elisha cry out to Elijah as he went up by a whirlwind into Heaven: “My father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the driver thereof…”? (2K 2:11,12). Did not Jesus say in the parable of the rich man who cried and said: “Father Abraham, have mercy on me…send Lazarus…”? (Lk 16:24). Let us go back and read the full statement of what Saint Paul said: “For I think that God has set forth us apostles, the last, as it were men appointed to death. We are made a spectacle to the world and to angels and to men. We are fools for Christ’s sake, but you are wise in Christ, we are weak, but you are strong, you are honorable, but we without honour. Even unto this hour we both hunger and thirst and are naked and are buffeted and have no fixed abode. And we labour, working with our own hands. We are reviled, and we bless. We are persecuted, and we suffer it. We are blasphemed, and we entreat. We are made as the refuse of this world, the off-scouring of all, even until now. I write not these things to confound you, but I admonish you as my dearest children. For if you have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet not many fathers, for in Christ Jesus, by the gospel, I have begotten you. Wherefore, I beseech you, be ye followers of me as I also am of Christ. For this cause have I sent to you Timothy, who is my dearest son and faithful in the Lord. Who will put you in mind of my ways, which are in Christ Jesus, as I teach every where in every church” (1Co 4:9-17). Notice his words, ‘my dearest children…I have begotten you…my dearest son.’ Saint Paul is not contradicting Christ Jesus! Rather he is following His teachings. You go on to state: “Also, as I went thru your website, there is no talk of repentance or submission to God. Only about the 7 sacraments which are not in the Holy Bible. It seems as if though the person who brought you to the truth, then started teaching you all these things and pretty much told you to sit in the catholic religion and do as you are told. I don’t want to offend you but the Word of God is the final word, not what any ‘man’ or ‘elder’ or ‘father’ ‘deacon’ etc… thinks about what the Word of God means or means to say.”  In reply and without being in any way hash, but you seem to have been indoctrinated in some kind of religious sect which is focused on error, and not on fact. Incidently, the ‘protestant’ bibles omit the word ‘penance,’ – why? The purpose of my web site is not to preach repentance or submission to God, but to show forth His truth to an unbelieving world, soon to be severely punished with Great Tribulation. You err greatly when you say that the 7 sacraments which are not in the Holy Bible. They are! Let us first see what they are and their purpose, and then how they came about. The first two Sacraments, Baptism and Confessions, are given to us for our personal preparation in pleasing our God. The second two Sacraments, Holy Communion and Confirmation, are for our gaining co-union and unity in our God. The third two Sacraments, Matrimony and Holy Order, are for our perfection and station in life. The last Sacrament, Extreme Unction, is the final anointing of our eternal unity forever in the Eternal Word. The Seven Sacraments allow man of his own free will to return to Almighty God: At the Fall, in the act of disobedience, man fell from grace (Gn 3:24). The creature, made to the image of our God was destroyed, but in the Sacrament of Baptism the way was made for man to be washed and renewed in the Creator’s peace (Gn 8:11). Man would continue to sin, and so God did institute the Sacrament of Confessions, for man to be made immaculate again (Jn 20:22,23). Through Jesus Christ, our Lord set up the Sacrament of Holy Communion, so that man could come back to unity in Him, and God the Creator could re-enter His creature, man, allowing man to return into holy co-union in God (Mt 26:26-28). Our Savior recognized in man that the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak, and so He established the Sacrament of Confirmation to assist man to receive the Spirit of God, that is, the Holy Ghost, back into his life (Lk 24:49). At the Fall, the unity of man and woman in marriage was broken, and the evil one became an intruder in marriage. Our Merciful God established the Sacrament of Matrimony (Mk 10:9), whereby man and woman could return to holy unity in each other, symbolic of the unity of God and man (Jn 17:23). At the Fall, man broke the priestly relationship with God, and man could no longer minister in His creation because of his enslavement to the devil. Our Lord God established a way for man to minister to God in purity and truth through the Sacrament of Holy Order of the Priesthood (Lk 22:19). At the Fall, man incurred the sin of death when he disobeyed the Lord, and became subject to the eternal death of Satan. God Almighty established the Sacrament of Extreme Unction, allowing man to avoid eternal death, and come to the lasting and highest anointing, which we receive in Jesus, Eternal Life (Lk 7:11-15). Part of the error why man today is so out of touch with the reality of the Word of God, is that he has been indoctrinated with error and bigotry. Jesus said: “Many false prophets shall rise and shall seduce many” (Mt 24:11), and so it has happened today, the false prophets in Protestantism, Romanism, and all the so very many thousands of ‘christian’ churches – some maintain that there are 30,000 protestant religions. Beware! See where you (XYZ) stand! I have traveled in over 100 countries of the world. I do not have a permanent home. I was born in Ireland, and since the Lord called me out into the Mojave Desert in California in the 1980’s to be instructed by Him, I have not had a place to lay my head. Today I am in …, awaiting His next instruction. I go when and where I am sent by Jesus. I have observed with interest what Jesus said: “But yet the Son of man, when He comes, shall He find, think you, faith on earth?” (Lk 18:8). I have been on my knees beseeching Jesus where is this faith to be found? I have been asking Him: “Where are the 144,000 who follow the Lamb?’ I have understood the meaning of that number and why He said: “And I beheld: and lo a Lamb stood upon Mount Sion, and with Him an hundred forty-four thousand, having His Name and the Name of His Father written on their foreheads….These are they who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These follow the Lamb whithersoever He goes. These were purchased from among men, the firstfruits to God and to the Lamb” (Apoc 14:1,4). You quote: “Acts 7:48 – However, the Most High does not live in houses made by men. As the prophet says Acts 17:24 – God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands.” I would draw your attention to what Saint Paul says: “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, and after this the judgment, so also Christ was offered once to exhaust the sins of many, the second time He shall appear without sin in them that expect Him unto salvation” (Hb 9:27,28). He says in another place: “Seeing it is a just thing with God to repay tribulation to them that trouble you, and to you who are troubled, rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from Heaven with the angels of His power, in a flame of fire, giving vengeance to them who know not God and who obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Who shall suffer eternal punishment in destruction, from the face of the Lord and from the glory of His power, when He shall come to be GLORIFIED IN HIS SAINTS and to be made WONDERFUL IN ALL THEM who have believed, because our testimony was believed upon you in that day. Wherefore also we pray always for you that our God would make you worthy of His vocation and fulfil all the good pleasure of His goodness and the work of faith in power, that the Name of our Lord Jesus may be GLORIFIED IN YOU, and YOU IN HIM, according to the grace of our God and of the Lord Jesus Christ” (2Th 1:6-12). In order to understand this re-examine the Third and Fourth Sacraments above. This kind of teaching is not uncommon in the Old Testament: “Give ye glory to God for Israel, His magnificence, and His power is in the clouds. God is wonderful in His saints, the God of Israel is He who will give power and strength to His people. Blessed be God” (Ps 67:35,36). (This would be Ps 68 in a protestant bible). All of christendom have turned away from the truth and reality of how God comes IN His people. Where are the 144,000? If you re-enter my website, you should read the very first page, and then go to the downloads, and read “The Reign of Christ in His Second Coming.” You say: “I appreciate your time and I thank God for the time He has allowed. I pray in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ that our Father God YHWH illuminates our path and that neither of us be deceived by spirits of slumber, deception, or pride. God bless us all Aquinas.” I thank you for your time (XYZ) , and I hope that in humility of spirit your questions have been answered, and perhaps an enlightenment as been given to you, so that you can pursue the holiness of truth, in the perfection of our Heavenly Father! I take from the language you use that you are probably an American, and most probably from the USA. You have a great diversity of religions there, and as I have traveled to all of the 50 states, as well as most of the provinces of Canada, I sympathize with you to an extent because ‘churches’ open up with such frequency that it is scary. Your televangelists are a nightmare, and the Roman church is a disgrace for their departure from the fulness of the truth of the Seven Sacraments, and from following the protest-ant errors and their cults. If you want to be serious about saving your soul, ask why Jesus said that only a few would enter by the narrow gate. Ask yourself why only 144,000 before the Great Tribulation? Ask yourself, if there is a possibility that you, yes you, could even be wrong? In confidence in Jesus, in the certitude of His calling, in the perfection of His anointing, I send you blessings in abundance. Father Aquinas.

The elder brothers must serve the younger.

Throughout the history of Christianity, Popes have admitted that Christians are the younger brothers of the Jews. This is so, and accordingly it is necessary to look at the scriptural meaning of this declaration, because the elder brothers (Jews) must serve the younger brothers (Christians):
“Isaac besought the Lord for his wife, because she was barren and He heard him, and made Rebecca to conceive. But the children struggled in her womb, and she said: If it were to be so with me, what need was there to conceive? And she went to consult the Lord and He answering, said: Two nations are in thy womb, and two peoples shall be divided out of thy womb, and one people shall overcome the other, and the elder shall serve the younger” (Gn 25:21-23).

Joseph seeing that his father (Jacob) had put his right hand upon the head of Ephraim, was much displeased, and taking his father’s hand he tried to lift it from Ephraim’s head, and to remove it to the head of Manasses And he said to his father: It should not be so, my father for this is the firstborn, put thy right hand upon his head. But he refusing, said: I know, my son, I know, and this also shall become a people, and shall be multiplied; but his younger brother shall be greater than he; and his seed shall grow into nations. And he blessed them at that time, saying: In thee shall Israel be blessed, and it shall be said: God do to thee as to Ephraim, and as to Manasses. And he set Ephraim before Manasses” (Gn 48:17-20).

In conclusion, I look for a time of great trials for all true believers. It will be a time when individuals will have to examine their position as members of a congregation, their own private beliefs, and separate ‘institution’ from ‘self’ if necessary. To all who have the courage to examine their position in Christ Jesus I say: “Return to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope, I will render thee double as I declare today” (Zc 9:12).
In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen (Mt 28:19).

Sons of men always oppose the sons of God. – Part 2

It is here that I separate the ‘Jews’ into two categories, the rulers and the ordinary people. The ordinary Jew believed in Jesus, the Christ, the Messiah, while the rulers were jealous of Him and, as seen above, plotted and murdered Him. Jesus said to His Disciples: “Behold we go up to Jerusalem, and the Son of man shall be betrayed to the chief priests and the scribes, and they shall condemn Him to death, and shall deliver Him to the Gentiles to be mocked and scourged and crucified…” (Mt 20:18,19).

When the accusation is made that the Jews crucified Jesus, this statement is not fully accurate. The statement should read that the rulers of the Jews crucified Jesus. The ordinary Jew followed Jesus and it is from these humble ranks that Christianity has spread to the ends of the earth! God has blessed them. On the other hand, it is from the ‘rulers of the Jews’ that the Satanic cult of Satanism (Zionism) was formed. It is from these ‘rulers’ that the ‘sons of men’ has expanded throughout the earth..

Christianity flourished under the Catholic Church in the first 500 years. It spread throughout the world, gave us the Bible, and established the call of the Apostle Paul: “One body and one Spirit as you are called in one hope of your calling. One Lord, one faith, one baptism. One God and Father of all, Who is above all, and through all, and in us all” (Ep 4:4-6). This is the final victory of the Church.

About the year 500, the Coptics falling to pride and disobedience established their Egyptian church which is currently headed by a Pope Tawadros II.
About 1000 AD the Orthodox broke away and established their church each area ruled by a Patriarch. (In essence a patriarch is the ‘pope’ of his area).
About 1500 AD the Protestants broke away from the Church and today it is reported that they have some 30,000 different sects or cults. For further information on this see:

Sons of men (evil man) always oppose the sons of God. – Part 1

The history of the pride, greed, disobedience by the rulers of the Jews is evident, and their
opposition to God and His anointed continued until the arrival of Jesus, Who is the Messiah, the Christ.

The ‘rulers’ of the Temple, ‘sons of men,’ were so jealous of Jesus Christ, that like the fratricide of Cain against Abel, the rulers of the Jews (sons of men as opposed to the sons of God – (Gn 6:2) murdered Jesus, by hanging Him on the Cross. It was in this very act that the ‘Jews’ lost their inheritance of the ‘chosen people,’ they preferred a murderer to the Messiah! The rulers got what they did not reckon on: “Trust in Him, all ye congregation of people: pour out your hearts before Him. God is our helper for ever. But vain are the sons of men, the sons of men are liars in the balances: that by vanity they may together deceive. Trust not in iniquity, and cover not robberies: if riches abound, set not your heart upon them. God has spoken once, these two things have I heard, that power belongs to God, and mercy to Thee, O Lord; for Thou wilt render to every man according to his works” (Ps 61:913).

Scripture bears witness to this claim that it was the rulers, the ‘sons of men’ ‘sons of the devil’ who murdered Jesus: “Peter seeing, made answer to the people: Ye men of Israel, why wonder you at this? Or why look you upon us, as if by our strength or power we had made this man to walk? The God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified His Son Jesus, Whom you indeed delivered up and denied before the face of Pilate, when he judged He should be released. But you denied the Holy One and the Just and desired a murderer to be granted unto you, but the Author of Life you killed, Whom God has raised from the dead of which we are witnesses…And now, brethren, I know that you did it through ignorance as did also your rulers” (Ac 3:12-15). Peter emphasizes ‘you did it through ignorance as did also your rulers.’

Paul rising up and with his hand bespeaking silence, said: Ye men of Israel and you that fear God, give ear…Men, brethren, children of the stock of Abraham, and whosoever among you fear God, to you the word of this salvation is sent. For they that inhabited Jerusalem and the rulers thereof, not knowing Him, nor the voices of the prophets which are read every Sabbath, judging Him, have fulfilled them, and finding no cause of death in Him, they desired of Pilate that they might kill Him. And when they had fulfilled all things that were written of him, taking him down from the tree, they laid him in a sepulchre” (Ac 13:16,26-29). Paul emphasizes ‘and the rulers thereof.’

“The (Jews) stirred up the people and the ancients and the scribes. And running together, they took (Stephen) and brought him to the council…And all that sat in the council, looking on him…Then the high priest said: Are these things so? (Stephen answered): “You stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, you always resist the Holy Ghost. As your fathers did, so do you also…Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? And they have slain them who foretold of the coming of the Just One of whom you have been now the betrayers and murderers. Who have received the law by the disposition of angels and have not kept. Now hearing these things, they were cut to the heart and they gnashed with their teeth at him. And they, crying out with a loud voice, stopped their ears and with one accord ran violently upon him. And casting him forth without the city, they stoned him” (Ac 6:12; 7:1,51-57). Stephen emphasizes ‘ancients and the scribes… you have been now the betrayers and murderers.’

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen. – Part 3

Apart from the ‘sons of men’ (sons of the devil), the ‘sons of God’ stayed faithful to God and there are 12 generations form Adam to Noah and the Flood. The number 12 signifies order, or government. But a number of the ‘sons of God’ were bewitched by the beauty of the ‘sons of men’ and left the worship of God to join in the enticements of the sons of the devil: “And God seeing that the wickedness of men was great on the earth, and that all the thought of their heart was bent upon evil at all times, it repented Him that He had made man on the earth. And being touched inwardly with sorrow of heart He said: I will destroy man, whom I have created, from the face of the earth, from man even to beasts, from the creeping thing even to the fowls of the air, for it repents Me that I have made them” (Gn 6:5). This brought on the Flood in which only the ‘sons of God’ survived and all the ‘sons of the devil’ were destroyed.

When Noah and his sons and wives came out of the Ark, the earth was pristine and clean with no sin. However sin entered into the second son whose name was Ham. Noah cursed his seed, and it from this offspring came Nimrod and those who built the tower of Babel and later Babylon. Consistently in the descendants of Noah, Abraham, Moses, Saul, David, Solomon and the following leaders rebellion against God Almighty was exercised.

The sons of Solomon divided Israel into 2 kingdoms, the north kingdom with 10 tribes was called ‘Israel’ and the south with 2 tribes was called ‘Judah.’ In the history of the divided kingdoms there were 19 kings in the northern kingdom of Israel, and scripture records that not one of them did that was pleasing to the Lord. In the southern kingdom there were 20 kings and only 8 of them did that which was pleasing to the Lord. The rebellion against God the Almighty is recorded in the Book of Machabees, and for some unearthly reason, the success of Judas Machabeus against the enemies of Israel is astonishing when one considers that with a small army he put to flight the nations fighting against him, and then he goes and makes a concord with the Roman Empire for protection! That lack of trust in the Saviour of Israel ended in the Roman conquest and enslavement of Israel, the destruction of the Temple, and the Jewish inability to perform the rites and sacrifices which God commanded. It is written: “But if you and your children, revolting, shall turn away from following Me, and will not keep My commandments, and My ceremonies, which I have set before you, but will go and worship strange gods, and adore them, I will take away Israel from the face of the land which I have given them, and the Temple which I have sanctified to My Name, I will cast out of My sight, and Israel shall be a proverb, and a byword among all people” (3K9:6,7). The Roman Empire was the false gods of the Jews.
