The Times Before the Times of the World

“God 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(2T 1:9). Again it is confirmed: “Unto the hope of life everlasting, which God, Who lies not, has promised before the times of the world” (Titus 1:2). Notice this ‘purpose, grace and promise,’ it all has a specific meaning!

Four words I wish to clarify before we begin:

Create is to bring into existence: “In the beginning God created heaven, and earth” (Gn 1:1).

Begot is an event which has happened in creation: “Henoch begot Irad, and Irad begot Maviael…” (Gn 4:18).

Beget is to procreate as the father: “And as for Ismael I have also heard thee. Behold, I will bless him, and increase, and multiply him exceedingly: he shall beget twelve chiefs, and I will make him a great nation” (Gn 17:20).

Make to cause to happen or to bring into existence: “God said: Let us make man to our image and likeness” (Gn 1:26).

A question immediately arises: Where was this ‘man’ whom God first mentions in the Bible? Here is the mystery, yet He has given us the answer. We will develop this answer in stages.

The times before the ‘times of the world,’ that is before when in ‘the beginning God created heaven, and earth,’ so much happened, and it is all revealed in Sacred Scripture. Scripture reveals scripture and in His Light we see light. When the Psalmist wrote: “The Lord said to my Lord: Sit Thou at My right hand until I make Thy enemies Thy footstool…from the womb before the day star I begot Thee” (Ps 109:1,3). That is, God the Father said to His Son Jesus Christ that He the Father begot Jesus His Son in the womb before the creation of the times of the world. The womb had to be in existence before the creation of the ‘heaven and the earth.’ (The heaven includes the heavenlies, that is the angels and archangels which includes the ‘day star’). It follows that ‘man’ had to be in existence in the womb in the heart of God the Father of Creation before the times of the world. Why do I say this? Because God said ‘Let us make man…’ This entity, this being, is the answer to so many questions. This womb had to be Mary, for we all know that She conceived of the Holy Ghost and brought forth Jesus Who is the Christ (Lk 2:7).

Begotten Soul

Now we come to the definition of what is this ‘man.’ When it is written: “And the Lord God formed man of the slime of the earth and breathed into his face the breath of life, and man became a living soul” (Gn 2:7), it follows that ‘man’ was a ‘begotten soul in the womb, in the heart of God the Father in eternity. This ‘begotten soul’ and all begotten souls in the heart of God the Father in eternity, God called ‘man,’ therefore when God said let us make ‘man’ to Our image and likeness, ‘man’ was already in existence in the womb of Mary, and would now be formed in a new creature.

Living Soul

This man did not become a ‘living soul’ until God gave him a human bodily substance in Adam: “The first man Adam was made into a living soul; the last Adam into a quickening spirit. Yet that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural afterwards that which is spiritual. The first man was of the earth, earthly: the second Man, from Heaven, heavenly(1Co 15:45-47).

Taking this verse in steps we see and understand that the first man was made into a ‘living soul’ contained in a human body.
In our journey through life we the last Adam into a quickening spirit, that is we overcome the allurements of the world and enter into the Divine Nature won for us by Christ Jesus, and given to us through the valid reception of His Body and Blood in Holy Eucharist. By eating and drinking His Body and Blood in Holy Eucharist, Christ Jesus comes to live in us in Eucharistic unity, and we grow more and more into His image and likeness as it is written: “As often as you shall eat this Bread and drink the Chalice, you shall show the death of the Lord, until He come” (1Co 11:26). By following the simple directions of worthily receiving Him in Holy Eucharist, we enter into the promise of the Divine Nature of the ‘heavenly’ man, “this mortal must put on immortality” (1Co 15:53), and this only comes to us in Holy Communion.

Adam was not first a ‘spiritual’ being but a natural human being formed from the slime of the earth, ‘Yet that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural, and then God breathed into his face and Adam became a spiritual being: afterwards that which is spiritual.
When we complete our life on earth (the first man was of the earth, earthly) then we enter into the promise of Jesus Christ and live in our glorified bodies as we see in Jesus: the second Man, from Heaven, heavenly.

This living soul was given a human body to carry it so to speak, as it is written: “And Adam called the name of his wife Eve because she was the mother of all the living” (Gn 3:20). Eve was taken out of Adam as Holy Writ records: “Then the Lord God cast a deep sleep upon Adam and when he was fast asleep, He took one of his ribs, and filled up flesh for it. And the Lord God built the rib which he took from Adam into a woman and brought her to Adam. And Adam said: This now is bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called woman, because she was taken out of man” (Gn 2:21-23). Therefore ‘the womb’ of this Eve, ‘mother of the living’ is secondary to Mary, the ‘womb before the day star,’ because Eve was made from the rib of Adam, the first ‘living soul’ – and was taken from ‘the womb’ of Mary which existed before ‘God created heaven, and earth.

Two Extraordinary Events

The identification of the original womb is the Mother of Jesus Christ the Son of Man. Before God made Eve and placed all the progeny of the sons of man in the womb of her, ‘the mother of all the living’, He withheld two ‘begotten souls.’ That is He withheld Jesus Who is the Messiah, and Mary, She who was to be the Mother of Jesus Christ. This had to be, as there was an earthly order in creation, so too there was a Heavenly order. This Heavenly order had a Mother in whose womb existed all ‘begotten souls’ which later in eternitygiven earthly bodies and became ‘living souls’ as we have seen. For those souls who follow God’s Law there will be a return to our Heavenly state of immaculate perfection in our Heavenly Mother: “How long wilt thou be dissolute in deliciousness, O wandering daughter? For the Lord has created a new thing upon the earth: A Woman shall compass a Man(Jr 31:22). We all must be born again and return to our Mother Mary, the Mother of Creation and be encompassed in Her immaculate womb: “For as the woman is of the man, so also is the man by the woman, but all things of God” (1Co 11:12). Everything is done in God’s Divine Order.

The First Extraordinary

Event Mary was and is sinless confirmed in scripture as her Son was He “Who knew no sin” (2Co 5:21). Therefore Mary was conceived without sin. At the appropriate time in the genealogy of the Levitical Priesthood, the seed of Mary was placed in the womb of her earthly mother Anna. The last Patriarch Joseph, became the ‘just’ spouse (Mt 1:19), of Immaculate Mary, to whom was entrusted the Son of God, Jesus the Christ.

The Second Extraordinary Event

The Archangel Gabriel said: “Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found grace with God. Behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb and shalt bring forth a Son and thou shalt call His Name Jesus” (Lk 1:30,31). How did Holy Saint Joseph respond? “But while he thought on these things, behold the Angel of the Lord appeared to him in his sleep, saying: Joseph, son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife, for that which is conceived in her, is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a Son and thou shalt call His Name Jesus, for He shall save His people from their sins. Now all this was done that it might be fulfilled which the Lord spoke by the prophet, saying: Behold a virgin shall be with Child, and bring forth a Son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. And Joseph rising up from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him, and took unto him his wife. And he knew her not till she brought forth her First born Son, and he called His name Jesus” (Mt 1:20-25).

Some commentators take this verse ‘he knew her not…’ as meaning that Saint Joseph had intercourse with Mary and had other children by her. This is simply not so. The word ‘till’ was a manner of speaking at that time in the Middle East, and is grossly misunderstood by Protestants. They take the verses from Saints Matthew and Saint Mark as their support for their argument: “Is not this the carpenter’s Son? Is not His mother called Mary, and His brethren James, and Joseph, and Simon, and Jude” (Mt 13:35). Again: “Is not this the carpenter, the Son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joseph, and Jude, and Simon? Are not also His sisters here with us?” (Mk 6:3).

In the verse quoted previously in this document, God said to His Divine Son: ‘Sit Thou at My right hand until I make Thy enemies Thy footstool.’ By heretics interpretation do they really mean that Jesus shall sit no longer after His enemies are defeated? They speak rubbish! Scripture reveals scripture: “Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ and brother of James: to them that are beloved in God the Father and preserved in Jesus Christ and called” (Jude 1:1). Why would Jude not call Jesus his Brother if in fact Jesus was His brother? He says he is His servant! If Jesus had sisters, then why did Mary’s mother Anna call two daughters ‘Mary’? “Now there stood by the cross of Jesus, His mother and His mother’s sister, Mary of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalen” (Jn 19:25). Don’t you see how erroneous those Protestants are? Let us move on.

When it is said that ‘he knew her not till she brought forth her First born Son’ it simply means that God intends the ‘living soul man’ to return to Him through the same way that He created us in the womb before the daystar as stated above! That is, we must be born again in the Immaculate Womb which conceived Jesus the Son of Man in eternity, before the times of the world. Mary conceived in her immaculate virgin womb Jesus the Son of Man, and all of humanity including Eve and Adam, before the creation of the world. Jesus Christ, God, was subject to Mary and obeyed her request, as we see at the miracle at Cana, how the stewards came to Mary for help and not to Jesus, and how Jesus obeyed His Mother (Jn 2:4,5), obedience – the Son for His Mother!

Let us take another event and look at the conversation of Jesus with Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: “Jesus said to him: ‘Amen, amen, I say to thee, unless a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.’ Nicodemus saith to Him: How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born again? Jesus answered: Amen, amen, I say to thee, unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Ghost, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh: and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Wonder not that I said to thee: You must be born again. The Spirit breaths where He will and thou hear His voice but thou know not whence He comes and whither He goes. So is every one that is born of the Spirit. Nicodemus answered and said to Him: How can these things be done? Jesus answered: “…no man hath ascended into Heaven, but he that descended from heaven, the Son of man who is in Heaven” (Jn 3:3-9,13).

Who is this Son of man? (Jn 12:34). Notice that Jesus never commented directly when Nicodemus asked can man enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born again! He answered in the order in which the ‘living soul’ man came into existence from the ‘begotten soul’ in eternity: ‘ Amen, amen, I say to thee, unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Ghost, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Wonder not that I said to thee: You must be born again. The Spirit breaths where He will and thou hear His voice but thou know not whence He comes and whither He goes. So is every one that is born of the Spirit.’ Nicodemus did not confess Him because he loved the glory of men rather than the glory of God (Jn 12:43), yet he corrected this when he stood firm for Jesus at the Cross and carried His Body to the tomb.

Consider the two events of Mary and Jesus:

1). Mary became subject to fallen man – Eve – yet remained obedient to Almighty God by being obedient to her earthly parents and her earthly spouse, and she herself knew no sin.

2). Jesus the Christ became obedient to earthly man – Joseph and Mary – yet remained obedient to Almighty God: Jesus “went down with them and came to Nazareth and was subject to them…And Jesus advanced in wisdom and age and grace with God and men” (Lk 2:51,52).

Did Jesus Christ exist before the making of Adam? Of course He did! It is written: “Jesus said: Amen, amen, I say to you, before Abraham was made, I AM” (Jn 8:58).

Since God has delivered us and called us by His holy calling, according to His own purpose and Grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the times of the world, unto the hope of Life Everlasting before the times of the world, then Saint Paul was given the insight of who we were and how we existed in the Heart of God the Father in eternity, then we must know that we have been instructed in earthly living while we were yet ‘begotten souls’ in the womb of Mary as stated above: ‘For as the woman is of the man, so also is the man by the woman, but all things of God.’

In conclusion, Eve the ‘mother of all the living’ was begotten in the womb of Mary ‘the mother of creation,’ in the Heart of God the Father, in eternity. Mary was the First ‘begotten soul,’ and Eve the first ‘living soul’ and she came from Mother Mary’s womb. Mary is the first ‘man’ from whose womb in eternity we were all begotten.

Forget not that Jesus is the Savior of mankind, the savior of creation: “Let Thy hand be upon the Man of Thy right hand and upon the Son of Man Whom Thou hast confirmed for Thyself” (Ps 79:18). Wise men today still find Jesus through Mary: “And entering into the house, they found the Child with Mary His mother” (Mt 2:11).

Before the Times of the World and Now – and Then

Before we begin I wish to quote some verses of Scripture which may be a help and guide us as we research further, remembering that the Holy Bible which was given to us by the Catholic Church, and begins with the mysterious words: “In the beginning God created heaven and earth…” (Gn 1:1). Saint John also begins his Gospel with the words: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and God was the Word, the same was in the beginning with God” (Jn 1:1,2).

Before the Times of the World

The obvious question would be where was God before ‘the beginning’, and what happened in that era before ‘the beginning’? Saint Paul alerts us to this ‘eternity’ before ‘the beginning’ by stating: “(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” (2T 1:9), and again: “…the hope of Life Everlasting, which God, Who lies not, has promised before the times of the world…” (Tt 1:2). Saint Peter gives us more information when he says: “…foreknown indeed before the foundation of the world, but manifested in the last times for you” (1P 1:20). Saint Jude sheds more light about those times: “And the angels who kept not their principality but forsook their own habitation, He has reserved under darkness in everlasting chains, unto the judgment of the great day” (Jude 1:6).

A key to understanding ‘before the times of the world,’ and ‘before the foundation of the world’ is found in the verse “…from the womb before the day star I begot thee” (Ps 109:3). Since the daystar was created at the ‘beginning’ of creation, then it is self evident that there was tremendous activity in the heart of God the Father before this. It is also evident that ‘man’ was not yet made in the physical material sense, then this ‘womb’ had to have a mystical or spiritual significance that transcends our human understanding. Therefore we must seek Divine revelation, help and understanding in order to find the event and meaning of ‘the womb.’ Was it just ‘Jesus’ Who was formed in the womb in eternity? Obviously not as God said to the Prophet Jeremiah: “Before I formed you in the womb of thy mother, I knew you, and before you came forth out of the womb, I sanctified you” (Jr 1:5). So God, Who formed Jeremiah ‘before’ he entered the womb of his mother, ‘knew him,’ then how did He know him?

There remains one more question which I would like to propose and that is this: Since Jesus Who knew not sin (2Co 5:21), was formed in the womb in eternity, then that womb had to be by definition immaculate. We know that His Mother is Immaculate Mary had to be sinless and it is her womb in which we all were mystically conceived and known therefore by God before the creation of the world. But God, Who is God, knew beforehand that ‘man’ would sin, so He withheld Immaculate Mary from the progeny of Eve, thus making way for the immaculate birth, which birth was totally different from ‘births’ as we know them today. God said to Eve: “I will multiply thy sorrows, and thy conceptions, in sorrow shalt thou bring forth children” (Gn 3:16). Mary did not conceive in sorrow, because She said: “My soul doth magnify the Lord and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. Because He has regarded the humility of His handmaid, for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed, because He that is mighty has done great things in me, and Holy is His Name” (Lk 1:46-49). Jesus was not born in the pain of childbirth, but came as a ‘light’ and painless through the womb of Mary. He confirmed this: “I am come, a Light into the world, that whosoever believes in Me may not remain in darkness” (Jn 12:46).

In our immaculate state in the heart of God the Father in eternity, did He instruct us about life before He allowed us to enter the womb of our earthly biological mother, or did He just leave us to the love of our parents to be enlightened? My speculative answer is that He did enlighten us before we were placed in the womb of our mother. “God is charity, and he that abides in charity abides in God, and God in him” (1Jn 4:16). This ‘charity’ and ‘love’ is something we are born with and bring into the world. One of the first things we do when we arrive into this world is cry! Why? Because we have left, first the security and comfort of the ‘womb’ in the heart of Father God, and secondly, have left the comfort and security of our mother’s womb, and have arrived in the coldness of the world of man’s passions.

One further thought or question before I continue. Since we were all formed in the heart of God the Father in eternity, did we communicate with each other in our immaculate state? Again I give a speculative answer and say ‘yes’! My reason is that when we watch ‘innocent’ children together at play, they have love one for another and make no distinction as to class, colour, or religion. They just mutual love and joy! It is when they grow older that they learn prejudices and hatred.

And Now
After the ‘times’ before the ‘times of the World’ we come into the ‘now’ when “The Lord God formed man of the slime of the earth and breathed into his face the breath of life, and man became a living soul” (Gn 2:7). At this time He gave His angels charge over us to keep us in all our ways (Ps 90:11). It is here that we must dig a little deeper as to who and what were ‘angels.’

When God created heaven and earth, He created the heavenlies, that is the angels. In His Divine Order of His creation he assigned duties and functions to the angels, who were organized into Archangels and Angels. To the Archangel Lucifer He assigned duties over the earth. When He told His heavenlies that He was going to make ‘man’ to His own image and likeness, and the angels would assist man to come into the fulness of God. At this command, Lucifer rebelled and declared that He would not serve. This is the crucial moment in which Pride and Disobedience was openly declared. I say openly, because it is my opinion that Lucifer was already growing prideful in himself of the great responsibility given to him by God, and when he was told that he would have to serve an inferior (Hb 2:7), that is ‘man’, he revolted and disobeyed God, the Almighty Creator of Heaven, and earth.

God made man, male and female, to His own image and likeness and placed them in the Garden of Paradise with instructions not to eat the forbidden fruit (Gn 2:17). Knowing these instructions which were given to our first parents, Satan went to work on the pride of Eve, and she fell for his lies, and enticed her husband to do the same (Gn 3:6). In this instant man gave Satan his inheritance, not only of the earth, but also over himself. Now the devil was ‘master’ over man and earth. He worked on the pride of Cain and set the population of earth into two camps, the sons of God, and the sons of men. Gradually the cunning fallen angel tempted the pride, lust and disobedience of fallen man to depart from the ways of the sons of God and join the lax sinful ways of the sons of men. “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 6:5,6). He found only Noah, his wife, his three sons and their wives faithful, and saved them in the ark, but He flooded the earth destroying all therein except for those creatures which He commanded faithful Noah to bring with him on the ark.

When the flood was over, Noah and his family arrived on a purified earth and adored God. But satan went to work to deceive man and tricked him through pride and power to disobey God. Again God called a faithful man Abraham and gave him the promise of inheritance in his seed. This promise was translated through the descendants down to the arrival of Jesus the Christ, the Son of God, Who came to redeem the ‘sons of men’ from the snares of the devil. The ‘sons of men’ did not want to be under God and inherit the gift given to Adam of the entire earth, but desired to have their own ‘kingdom’ in which they would have no king but Caesar (Jn 19:15). They killed the Son of God and declared that: “His blood be upon us and upon our children” (Mt 27:25). Their high priest Caiphas declared: “…that it is expedient for you that one man should die for the people and that the whole nation perish not” (Jn 11:50).

This ‘nation’ of Pharisees and Sadducees is the Zionists of today. They have set up a control over the entire world which is so complete in evil, transgressing every commandment given to us by Almighty God, that it is now impossible for the few remaining ‘sons of God’ to take back from Satan that which his diabolical followers, the Zionist Jews in conjunction with the Freemasons and the Communists have established. These Zionists (Pharisees and Sadducees whom I will group together with the Freemasons and Communists, for truly they are subdivisions of Zionism), have almost total control over every aspect of life on planet earth. I say ‘almost’ because a remnant is saved and cannot be overcome (Rm 9:27). The sin and evil in the world is rampant. The control of all the governments, taxation, finance, education, religion (through ‘charity tax breaks’), production and all media, is in the hands of the Zionists. Truth is suppressed because the Zionists are liars. Jesus said to the Jews of Lucifer, who is also called Satan, and Devil: “You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and he stood not in the truth, because truth is not in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own, for he is a liar, and the father thereof” (Jn 8:44).

The Zionists (Satan) has succeeded in dividing the Church given to us by Jesus Christ into two sections, the Catholic Church (not the ecumenical one), and the Protest church (with some 30,000 sects).  “We know that we are of God and the whole world is seated in wickedness” (1Jn 5:19). There is only one way and one way only that man in this twenty first century can be redeemed out of the hand of the devil (Zionists), and that is by Divine intervention from Heaven. The prayer of the faithful will bring this about (Jm 5:16).

The Defeat of Satan

The first part of the defeat of the devil (Zionism) is the great battle in heaven when the devil and his fallen angels are cast out of the heavens unto the earth (Apoc 12:7-9). I am of the opinion that event has already taken place “…because the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, knowing that he has but a short time. And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman who brought forth the man child” (Apoc 12:12,13).

The intensity of evils, provoking wars, planned poverty, starvation, famines, family destruction, unjust laws, etc., are so numerous and vile, that it is obvious the devil is cast unto the earth and is directly persecuting Christian values at every level.

The good news is that we are assured of this victory over the Zionists: “Go to now, ye rich men weep and howl in your miseries, which shall come upon you. Your riches are corrupted and your garments are moth eaten. Your gold and silver is cankered, and the rust of them shall be for a testimony against you and shall eat your flesh like fire. You have stored up to yourselves wrath against the last days. Behold the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which by fraud has been kept back by you, cries, and the cry of them has entered into the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth. You have feasted upon earth and in riotousness you have nourished your hearts, in the day of slaughter. You have condemned and put to death the Just One, and He resisted you not” (Jm 5:1-5). The true Catholic Church is the only barrier preventing the Zionists from absolute control over the earth including the cosmos. The true Catholic Church which is the Eucharistic Church is the fulfillment of Saint Paul’s prayer for the new creation: ‘May we in all things grow up in Him, Who is the Head (Ep 4:15), walking in newness of life, in the likeness of His resurrection (Rm 6:4,5), to perfect man, unto the measure of the age of the fulness of Christ (Ep 4:13).

We said earlier that Satan has succeeded in dividing the Church given to us by Jesus Christ into two sections, the Catholic Church (not the ecumenical one), and the Protest church. There are numerous souls who have been ‘born into’ a church of error and have continued in that church of error until this present day. Our God is a merciful God and gives ear to all people and hears their cry for help, and gives them every opportunity to be saved: “Hear, O Lord, and have mercy, for Thou art a merciful God, and have pity on us for we have sinned before Thee” (Baruch 3:2). The Ark of the Covenant which was taken from the Temple by Jeremiah and hidden in Mount Nebo by the Prophet Jeremiah will be recovered, and shown to the world for those who truly want salvation. Jeremiah said: “The place shall be unknown, till God gather together the congregation of the people, and receive them to mercy” (2M 2:7). The recovery of the Ark will be a miracle of our God, and it will continue as a visible sign of the very power of our God, Who will bring this about.

It will be the sounding of the seventh trumpet, and all those on earth will have the opportunity to come into the truth of God’s Church. This will be the heralding of the death of Zionism. “The expectation of the creature waits for the revelation of the sons of God. “For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him that made it subject, in hope. Because the creature also itself shall be delivered from the servitude of corruption, into the liberty of the glory of the children of God. For we know that every creature groans and travails in pain, even till now. And not only it, but ourselves also, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption of the sons of God, the redemption of our body” (Rm 8:19-23).

The command is given: “Hurt not the earth nor the sea nor the trees, till we sign the servants of our God in their foreheads. 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 7:3,4).

“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. And they sung as it were a new canticle, before the throne and before the four living creatures and the ancients: and no man could say the canticle, but those hundred forty-four thousand who were purchased from the earth. 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).

 

The second part of the defeat of the devil (Zionism) is the armies that are in heaven. “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 his eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many diadems. And he had a name written, which no man knows but himself. And he was clothed with a garment sprinkled with blood. And his name is called: THE WORD OF GOD. And the armies that are in heaven followed him on white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth proceeds a sharp two-edged sword, that with it he may strike the nations. And he shall rule them with a rod of iron, and he treads the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of God the Almighty. And he has on his garment and on his thigh written: King of kings and Lord of lords” (Apoc 19:11-16).

Now I said earlier that the prayer of the just avails much. This prayer brings down from Heaven those armies that are there waiting now for the battle before them. Those armies that are in Heaven are composed of the angels and the saints who have died and gone before us, but also of a number of those saints now living on earth who shall be called up to Heaven, as was St. Paul (2Co 12:2), and instructed in the Kingdom of God authority and power and living. They will be very few in number. I suspect that they will be members of the hierarchy, cardinals and bishops, the extremely few who are faithful to our Eucharistic Christ Jesus, King of All Nations, King of the Universe. There will also be priests and deacons, not many. I believe that the greatest number of those ‘called up’ will be secular. I further suspect that the total number overall shall be the 144,000 who shall reclaim the world from the evil doers: “The saints shall rejoice in glory, they shall be joyful in their beds. The high praises of God shall be in their mouth, and two-edged swords in their hands, to execute vengeance upon the nations, chastisements among the people, to bind their kings with fetters, and their nobles with manacles of iron. To execute upon them the judgment that is written, this glory is to all His saints. Alleluia” (Ps 149:5-9).

As the first heavens and the first earth were destroyed by water, so too shall this second earth be destroyed by fire: “For this they are wilfully ignorant of: that the heavens were before, and the earth out of water and through water, consisting by the word of God, whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished. But the heavens and the earth which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of the ungodly men…But the day of the Lord shall come as a thief, in which the heavens shall pass away with great violence and the elements shall be melted with heat and the earth and the works which are in it shall be burnt up…Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of the Lord, by which the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with the burning heat?…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. Amen” (2P 3:5-7,10,12,17).

Those faithful to Jesus Christ and ALL His teachings will be protected by Him in this Great Tribulation which is soon to be upon us. He will put His mighty hands over each and every faithful member and protect them in the coming day of the Lord.

After the fire and the destruction of the ungodly, the faithful will bury the dead for seven months to cleanse the land (Ez 39:12).

And Then
After this comes the ‘Last Judgement’ and the faithful will hear those glorious words: “Come, ye blessed of My Father, possess you the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world” (Mt 25:34). What exceeding joy and happiness!

Then comes the fulfillment of that great promise: “The wolf shall dwell with the lamb: and the leopard shall lie down with the kid: the calf and the lion, and the sheep shall abide together, and a little child shall lead them. The calf and the bear shall feed: their young ones shall rest together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp: and the weaned child shall thrust his hand into the den of the basilisk. They shall not hurt, nor shall they kill in all my holy mountain, for the earth is filled with the knowledge of the Lord, as the covering waters of the sea” (Is 11:6-9).

So be it. It be so!
