“All things obey money” – Part 2

When did ‘false money’ come into being?
Best stated, false money is the ‘golden calf’ of our times. “The people seeing that Moses delayed to come down from the mount, gathering together against Aaron, said: Arise, make us gods, that may go before us…” (Ex 32: 1), and so they made the golden calf, this was about the year 1500 B.C. Knowing the hearts of the people, God had already established the value of money and established a true currency…“half a shekel according to the standard of the temple” (Ex 30:13). Some rebellious members of the Jews in the ‘Exodus’ wanted to assert their own timetable, and their own ideas, and their own way of doing things. Again God  emphasizes His weights and measures: “…according to the weight of the sanctuary” (Lv 5:15; Nu 7:13).

If all the members of the Exodus were in agreement with God, then there would have been no problems, but that was not the case, so God warned the hard hearted: “Do not any unjust thing in judgment, in rule, in weight, or in measure. Let the balance be just and the weights equal, the bushel just, and the sextary equal. I am the Lord your God, that brought you out of the land of Egypt. Keep all My precepts, and all My judgments and do them. I am the Lord” (Lv 19:35-37).

A minority of the Jews did not want the God of Creation to have dominion over them in any way and insisted on their desire for deviousness. God chastised them: “Thou shalt not have divers weights in thy bag, a greater and a less…Thou shalt have a just and a true weight, and thy bushel shall be equal and true” (Dt 25:13,15).

About the year 1000 B.C. Solomon wrote: “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 will render to every man according to his works” (Ps 61:10-13). Later the king wrote: “A deceitful balance is an abomination before the Lord, and a just weight is His will. Diverse weights and diverse measures, both are abominable before God” (Pr 11:1;21:10).

The minority, a very persuasive and powerful small group of deceitful Jews got control of the trading and ‘currency’ and about 750 B.C., God asked them through the prophet Micah: “Shall I justify wicked balances, and the deceitful weights of the bag?” (Mi 6:11). Those men sought control over the temple, the kingdom, the money and the laws. They took for their actions the words which God gave to Moses, and abused it: “Thou shalt lend to many nations, and thou shalt borrow of no man. Thou shalt have dominion over very many nations, and no one shall have dominion over thee” (Dt 15:6). Thus they have taken control over the money systems of the world, and have set up the apparatus for establishing the kingdom of Zion to oppose the Kingdom of God.

God Himself rebuked them in 33 AD.: “Jesus went into the temple of God and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple and overthrew the tables of the money changers and the chairs of them that sold doves, and He saith to them: It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but you have made it a den of thieves” (Mt 21:12,13).

This group was scattered throughout the face of the earth, and again they continued with their aspirations for the all controlling kingdom of Zion. These are the Zionists (not really Jews, although they call themselves Jews: “Thou art blasphemed by them that say they are Jews and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan…Behold, I will bring of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but do lie” (Apoc 2:9; 3:9).

These false Jews have concocted weird and convoluted systems for trading on the stock and commodity markets of the world. Trade the markets to go up or go down, financial instruments with very questionable underlying foundations, such as derivatives, which at the present time has an exposure for collapse that is unfathomable.

Thus, the ‘false money’ is rampant, and soon this economic lie will be tested to the extent that it must give way to the truth – it will collapse and bring the mighty to dust.

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!

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

Marriage Feast of The Lamb

“Let us be glad and rejoice and give glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and His wife has prepared herself. And it is granted to her that she should clothe herself with fine linen, glittering and white, for the fine linen are the justifications of saints. And he said to me: Write: Blessed are they that are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he said to me: These words of God are true” (Apoc 19:7-9).

‘…the marriage of the Lamb is come, and His wife has prepared herself.’ Notice the instruction: ‘His wife has prepared herself…’ There are preparations which we must make. As we prepare for the Marriage Feast of The Lamb, a number of preparations must first take place here on earth.

The first is our understanding of the Mystical, Spiritual and Fundamental word of God in relation to Creator, creation and created: “In the beginning God created heaven, and earth…and the spirit of God moved over the waters” (Gn 1:1,2). It is in this sense that we are aware of the Battle of the Ages as all of creation is taken back from the Devil and restored to God Almighty.

The second is that the Spiritual is further to be understood in our individual personal sense of spirit, soul and body: “Behold My servant whom I have chosen, My beloved in whom My soul has been well pleased. I will put My spirit upon him, and he shall show judgment to the Gentiles” (Mt 12:18). It is in this sense that we are aware of our own individual battle against the forces of evil, and drive the Devil and his minions out of our beings, using the gifts of Jesus Christ in His Seven Sacraments: “I will give to thee the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven (Mt 16:19).

The third is that once we have conquered the second part, then we are ready to invite the armies that are in Heaven to come to earth and participate in the final Great Tribulation in defeating Satan: “But every one in his own order: the firstfruits, Christ: then they that are of Christ, who have believed in His coming. Afterwards the end: when He shall have delivered up the Kingdom to God and the Father: when He shall have brought to nought all principality and power and virtue. For He must reign, until He has put all His enemies under his feet. And the enemy, death, shall be destroyed last: For he has put all things under His feet. And whereas He says: All things are put under Him; undoubtedly, He is excepted, who put all things under Him. And when all things shall be subdued unto Him, then the Son also Himself shall be subject unto Him that put all things under Him, that God may be all in all” (1Co 15:23-28).

The fourth is that before the fulness of the armies that are in Heaven can arrive on earth, there will be two advance parties arriving, the first is a preliminary advance party of two people who will assist us here on earth to make ready for the second group which is the full advance party (Jos 2:1-23).

The fifth is that the preliminary advance party will assist us in setting up all the necessary infrastructure for the main advance party. This setting up will include among other things housing, communications and distribution of the written word: “Hear my words and counsels, and God shall be with thee. Be thou to the people in those things that pertain to God, to bring their words to Him, and to show the people the ceremonies, and the manner of worshiping; and the way wherein they ought to walk, and the work that they ought to do. And provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, in whom there is truth, and that hate avarice, and appoint of them rulers of thousands, and of hundreds, and of fifties, and of tens, who may judge the people at all times: and when any great matter soever shall fall out, let them refer it to thee, and let them judge the lesser matters only: that so it may be lighter for thee, the burden being shared out unto others. If thou dost this, thou shalt fulfil the commandment of God, and shall be able to bear His precepts: and all this people shall return to their places with peace” (Ex 18:19-23).

The sixth part is the arrival of the entire advance party who will prepare the world including the cosmos and under the sea and earth for the great ‘clean up’ and evangelization: “And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard all saying: To Him that sits on the Throne and to the Lamb, benediction and honour and glory and power, for ever and ever” (Apoc 5:13).

It is in this time frame that the Ark of the Covenant will be recovered and shown to all the world as Scripture says: “…until the times of the restitution of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of His holy prophets, from the beginning of the world” (Ac 3:21). This showing of the Ark is not a ‘photo op,’ no, it is the demonstration of the power and might and fulness of the authority of God given to His people of faith. It is the transfer of the sceptre from those who violated His Word with the worldly political correctness of man-made ecumenism. It is the time of making ‘all things new’ (Apoc 21:5). In the prophet Jeremiah it is recorded: “Return, O ye revolting children, saith the Lord, for I am your I Husband, and I will take you, one of a city, and two of a kindred, and will bring you into Sion, and I will give you pastors according to My own heart, and they shall feed you with knowledge and doctrine” (Jr 3:14,15). I can assure you that this ‘knowledge and doctrine’ is not found in the ecumenism of the 1960’s which is rampant today.

“Before the Ark of Testimony shall be opened before the end of the age, the Living Testimony, herein contained, shall be unsealed. The Presence of the Divine Ark will constitute the life of this Virgin Church. Wherever the Body is, there must be, of necessity, the Divine Ark. Along with the unsealing of the Living Testimony, with the Ark of God, must begin the promulgation of the everlasting gospel of the Kingdom. The proclamation of this Testimony will be as a sounding of a trumpet to alarm the nations and peoples of professed Christendom.” (1619 Prophecy para 3).

The arrival of the armies of Heaven on earth for the final great evangelization shows the completeness of the Divine Mercy of God. This time of mercy is given to all those who will receive His Grace. This is that time of mercy as recorded by Jeremiah the prophet: “When Jeremias came thither (Mount Nebo) he found a hollow cave and he carried in thither the tabernacle, and the ark, and the altar of incense, and so stopped the door. Then some of them that followed him, came up to mark the place, but they could not find it. 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” (2M 2:5-7). The time of mercy, the time of the Great Evangelization, the time of the fullness of the Goodness of God.

The details of this conversion drive will be complete in every aspect with nothing missing. Every person in every nation, tribe and dialect will receive individual ‘visitors’ instructing them on the truths of Christ Jesus. No one will be overlooked and all will have every opportunity to convert to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ: “But 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).

Finally, the entire armies that are in Heaven will arrive on earth for the final great push. The prayer of Jesus is fulfilled: “Father…Thy Kingdom come…on earth as it is in Heaven” (Mt 6:10). This is such an extraordinary event that the Antichrist curses those in Heaven on earth: “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). The Devil and his demons quake with horror and fear as they see the end of their wickedness and total destruction by God’s invincible army, led by His faithful The Word of God, who: “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 19:13-16). The devil and his minions know that now the open gates of Hell swallow them up in everlasting flames (Apoc 20:3).

In addition to the spiritual war will there be a physical war as well? Very definitely yes! Listen to what Jesus said to Pilate: “My Kingdom is not of this world. If My Kingdom were of this world, My servants would certainly strive that I should not be delivered to the Jews, but now My Kingdom is not from hence” (Jn 18:36). When He said ‘..but now My Kingdom is not from hence’ He indicates that there will be a time when His Kingdom will be here on earth. Notice what He said to Peter: “Put up again your sword into its place for all that take the sword shall perish with the sword. Think you that I cannot ask My Father, and He will give Me presently more than twelve legions of angels?” (Mt 26:52,53). Again see the prophecy of the arrival of the Heavenly armies, ‘He will give Me presently more than twelve legions of angels.’ This is not an idle statement, but a definite indication of what is in store for the Battle of the Ages. In terms of the Roman army a legion consisted of a division of somewhere between 3,000 and 6,000 men. But Jesus was not speaking of an earthly (Roman) army, but of a Heavenly army from His Father, where a legion consisted of a vast number of angels.

After the conclusion of the Final Battle, everything will be at peace, for the New Garden of Eden, that is the New Jerusalem will be open and everything will be as God intended from the very beginning. Everything will be God centered, and earthly objects will no more have place in the Heavenly Jerusalem: “When you shall be multiplied, and increase in the land in those days, saith the Lord, they shall say no more: ‘The Ark of the Covenant of the Lord,’ neither shall it come upon the heart, neither shall they remember it, neither shall it be visited, neither shall that be done any more” (Jr 3:16). How insignificant that will be, ‘neither shall it be visited.’

There follows the Great Judgement Day, the Final Judgement: “And when the Son of man shall come in His majesty, and all the angels with Him, then shall He sit upon the seat of His majesty. And all nations shall be gathered together before Him, and He shall separate them one from another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, and He shall set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on His left. Then shall the King say to them that shall be on His right hand: Come, ye blessed of My Father, possess you the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world…Then He shall say to them also that shall be on His left hand: Depart from Me, you cursed, into everlasting fire, which was prepared for the devil and his angels. And these shall go into everlasting punishment, but the just, into Life Everlasting” (Mt 25:31-34,41-46).

Hell and evil will be consumed in fire and will be remembered no more. “And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord of hosts, that I will destroy the names of idols out of the earth, and they shall be remembered no more, and I will take away the false prophets, and the unclean spirit out of the earth” (Zc 13:2).

When these final events are over, then we, the victorious saints, will sit down to the Marriage Feast of the Lamb, with Christ Jesus our Host: “Blessed are those servants whom the Lord, when He comes, shall find watching. Amen I say to you that He will gird Himself and make them sit down to meat and passing will minister unto them” (Lk 12:37). Amen!

 

Why God must make all things New

In the beginning when God gave Adam instructions for the administration of His creation in the Garden of Eden, Adam disobeyed God and partook of the forbidden fruit which his wife Eve, enticed him to eat. At the Fall, man broke the priestly relationship with God and man could no longer minister in the Garden (which I will now term The Church, which title is used in over ten books of the Old Testament), God banished he and his wife from the immaculacy of The Church, and set him outside it, because of his enslavement to the devil.

When outside the Garden of Eden, Adam’s first-born Cain, under the influence of the forbidden fruit and Satan, killed his younger brother Abel through Satan’s sin of pride and disobedience. Two forces were now in operation in the world, good and evil. The forces of evil expanded and the forces of good were diminished to the point that God had enough and flooded His earth, saving the only people who were following good, Noah, his wife and three sons and their wives.

When they arrived at the ‘new heavens and the new earth’ in his priestly function, Noah offered sacrifices and praise to God. Shortly after that, one of the sons of Ham mocked God’s commandments and in turn Nimrod of his progeny established a kingdom of pride and evil which caused God to separate good and evil at the Tower of Babel.

Man continued to follow the pride of the devil, and God called Abraham out of the land of Chaldees (now called Iraq) and asked him to leave all behind and follow Him. In absolute faith, Abraham believed in the promises of God, and moved as he was told, and came into the land of Palestine, (also known as present day Israel). Melchizedek, the king of Salem, priest of the most high God, brought forth bread and wine and blessed Abraham (Gn 14:18-20). This Melchizedek is in a sense mysterious, “without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but likened unto the Son of God, continues a priest for ever” (Hb 7:3). Mysterious as he is, we will encounter him again as he is ‘a priest forever.’

Abraham offered sacrifices to the Lord in obedience, faith and love, knowing that he would have offspring as plentiful as the stars of heaven (Gn 15:5). However, Abraham followed the advice of Sarah his wife who at that time was barren, and had relations with her servant Hagar who bore him a son named Ishmael (Gn 16:1-15), born of the flesh and not of the promise. Isaac was born of the promise (Gn 21:5), and because of the conflict between ‘the promise’ and ‘the flesh,’ Ishmael was cast out of The Church.

Isaac had twins, Esau and Jacob, but Esau was smitten by the evil of Satan’s pride and disobedience and separated from The Church. Jacob loved Rebecca and was deceived by her sister Lia whom he unwittingly married, but later was given Rebecca also in marriage. Between them they both gave Jacob twelve sons, who were the twelve tribes of Jacob who was renamed ‘Israel’ by God (Gn 32:28). The first born of the deception, Ruben, committed incest with Bala, his father’s concubine (Gn 35:22). Israel appointed Joseph, the first-born of the promised wife Rebecca, to be the head of the house of Israel. Through jealousy, hatred and pride, the ten tribes sold Joseph into slavery in Egypt. But God was with Joseph and he became ‘the saviour of the world’ and rescued his brothers and father from famine which was raging in the land of Palestine.

Through the protection of Joseph, the tribes of Israel survived and in four hundred years time the tribe of Levy brought forth Moses and Aaron who were appointed priests by God (Ps 98:6). Through them the Levitical Priesthood was established by God, Who gave them laws, written by the finger of God, for the direction of the lives of the ‘chosen people.’ Under the leadership of Moses, God brought all of Israel out of bondage, yet the tribes complained and rebelled against Moses They even convinced Aaron to build a false god to be their inspiration and leader (Ex 32:8). “When he (Moses) came nigh to the camp, he saw the calf, and the dances, and being very angry, he threw the tables out of his hand, and broke them at the foot of the mount” (Ex 32:19). In his anger, man broke the written law of God. But God said to Moses: “Hew you two tables of stone like unto the former, and I will write upon them the words which were in the tables, which you broke” (Ex 34:1).

Because of disobedience to the word of God, Moses and Aaron could not lead Israel into the Promised land, and God appointed faithful Joshua to bring the people across the Jordan (Jos 3:15-17).

After the people were settled in their assigned areas, the land was ruled by judges. The sons of Eli, Ophni and Phinees, were appointed priests, but in fact were children of Belial, not knowing the Lord (1K 2:12), and the people murmured. “In those days there was no king in Israel, but every one did that which seemed right to himself” (Jg 17:6; 21:24). God gave them the prophet Samuel to rule over them, and when he was old, his sons walked not in the ways of the Lord, and so they demanded a king to rule over them (1K 8:6). God said: “I will give thee a king in My wrath, and will take him away in My indignation” (Ho 13:11).

God anointed Saul king of Israel, but he disobeyed God. The Lord took away the Ark of the Covenant from Israel: “Go ye to My place in Silo, where My Name dwelt from the beginning and see what I did to it for the wickedness of My people Israel” (Jr 7:12). Saul was replaced by David. David committed adultery and murder and was succeeded by his son Solomon, who built the Temple to the Lord, but “he had seven hundred wives as queens, and three hundred concubines, and the women turned away his heart” (3K 11:3). His sons divided the kingdom in two with ten tribes in the north (called Israel) and two tribes in the south (called Judea). There were 19 kings in the north who followed idiolatry and not one did right in the eyes of the Lord. There were 20 kings in the south of whom only 8 did right in the eyes of the Lord.

After all the disobedience and pride of the Israelites, the Lord removed the Ark of the Covenant altogether from the land of Israel and hid it in Mount Nebo where it will remain until the ‘time of mercy’ (2M 2:4,7).

Finally God sent His only begotten Son Jesus the Christ, to redeem mankind from the disobedience and pride of Satan, the prince of darkness. He said to His apostles and disciples: “A new commandment I give unto you: That you love one another, as I have loved you, that you also love one another” (Jn 13:34). After having established His Church of the New Testament with His Blood (Mt 26:28), the rulers of the Jews crucified Him because they loved their positions of honour and prestige given them by Satan.

Jesus gave to the Apostle Peter the authority over His Church: “I will give to thee the Keys of the Kingdom of Heaven, and whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in Heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth, it shall be loosed also in Heaven” (Mt 16:19). The Primacy of Peter was accepted until pride and disobedience took hold and the house of Christianity splintered and broke into four divisions, each calling themselves Catholic and Christian, and so we have now Roman, Coptic, Orthodox and Protestant Catholic Christian churches. Jesus had said: “Every kingdom divided against itself shall be made desolate, and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand” (Mt 12:25). So it has happened in Christianity.

The Roman Catholic Church and the Papacy is the direct lineage of Saint Peter. There is no other. Throughout the ages, the office of the Papacy has been held by some very undesirable ‘popes.’ History shows that the office was obtained by murder, nepotism, debauchery, kidnaping and a host of other grievous offences against God. The final departure from Jesus Christ happened in the 1960’s when the Second Vatican Council was held in which they changed the Law of God as given in Holy Scripture, and the warning of Jesus was not heeded when He said: ‘whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth, it shall be loosed also in Heaven.’ The Roman church ‘loosed’ itself from Heaven and joined the thousands of other erring sects in eating the forbidden fruit.
God has rejected the Vatican II and all who promote it. Arrogance of man, his disobedience and pride, has led to the disorder which is seen in the Vatican and in the world today. As the “chief priests and ancients of the people…consulted together that by subtilty they might apprehend Jesus and put Him to death” (Mt 26:3,4; Lk 19:47), so too the leaders of the Roman church have joined with the other divided houses in rejecting the teachings of Jesus Christ. Saint Peter said to the Jews: “And now, brethren, I know that you did it through ignorance, as did also your rulers” (Ac 3:17).

Since the Vatican II Council, morality in the world has degenerated into an abyss in which the depths of sin seem to have no end. Immorality, divorce, abortion, homosexuality, contraception, wars, insurrections, genocide, spying, have increased with no end in sight, and there is no leader to put a stop to all of this. Man still eats the forbidden fruit.

Technology has advanced to such a degree that cloning of human beings and manufacturing of human robots and weapons of mass destruction, exceeds the efforts of the Tower of Babel. Where will this end?

What must be done to correct all the errors and divisions and evil technology?

It is obvious that God must make all things new.

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.’

Do all Christians have Christian Citizenship?

All Roman Catholics, all Protestants, all Orthodox (Greek, Russian etc) all Coptics, call themselves ‘Christians’. Is this really so? In a sense they are correct, but in the fulness of truth they do not have Christian Citizenship!

Let me explain this by the way of my own personal civilian experience.
I was born in Northern Ireland and was made a ward of the British Court system at the age of 5. By being born in Ireland I also had the option of being an Irish citizen. At the age of 19 I decided to emigrate to the United States of America. My choices were to get an Irish passport or a British one. I opted to go completely legal and get release from being a ward of the British system, thus avoiding any problems later in life from that source.

I arrived in the USA in June 1956, and as requested by my alien status I made myself available to be drafted into the US Army for a two year period. In actual fact I enlisted for three years because of the benefits at the end of my tour of duty. When I joined the army, I was given a uniform with two labels on it: the first one was ‘U S Army’, and another label ‘Devlin’. I was an American, and American soldier, sworn to defend the United States. I was happy and proud to be an American – but I was an alien American and not an American citizen.

After being honorably discharged at the age of 24, I was legally qualified to apply for citizenship in my adopted country which had welcomed me in 1956. Having purchased and studied a book published by the Daughters of the American Revolution, application was made through the courts for citizenship, and after satisfying the judge that I knew some American history, he had me place my hand on my heart and swear allegiance to my new country – ‘one nation under God.’ A very happy American was now an American citizen! I had the same rights as every other citizen of the USA. America was good to me and I continually give thanks.

Similarly, when I was born, I was baptized about 30 days later. Made my first Confessions and Holy Communion at age7. Confirmed in the Holy Ghost at 11, and was then a full Christian Citizen. In the intervening years I lived up to the demands of the Catholic Church, adhered to the Seven Sacraments, the Precepts of the Church, and studied the Scriptures. In other words, I lived up to my commitments for Christian Citizenship.

The Seven Sacraments are the seven pillars of wisdom (Pr 9:1), which are the Keys of the Kingdom of Heaven (Mt 16:19).

It is in our becoming a Christian Citizen, that we become one in Christ, and He becomes one in us. That is we are translated into the new man which is the Christian Citizen. There is only one way that this can be accomplished, and one way only – we must believe, live, and fulfill the Seven Sacraments of the Church as given to us by Jesus Himself. There are no exceptions and no short-cuts.

Jesus established the Seven Sacraments in Himself for our citizenship and oneness in Him. These Seven Sacraments allow man of his own free will to return to full citizenship in God.
First. At the Fall, in the act of disobedience, man fell from grace (Gn 3:24). The creature, made to the image of God was destroyed, but in the Sacrament of Baptism the way was made for man to be washed and renewed in God’s peace (Gn 8:11). Jesus established the Sacrament of Baptism by His Own baptism by John the Baptist in the Jordan (Mt 3:13-16).

Second. Man would continue to sin, and so God instituted the Sacrament of Confessions, for man to be made immaculate again. Jesus gave the ordained Apostles power to forgive sins: “Now when it was late the same day, the first of the week, and the doors were shut, where the disciples were gathered together for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst and said to them: Peace be to you…He said therefore to them again: Peace be to you. As the Father has sent Me, I also send you. When He had said this, He breathed on them and He said to them: Receive ye the Holy Ghost. Whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them: and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained” (Jn 20:22-23). He also said: “Amen I say to you, whatsoever you shall bind upon earth, shall be bound also in Heaven: and whatsoever you shall loose upon earth, shall be loosed also in Heaven. Again I say to you, that if two of you shall consent upon earth, concerning anything whatsoever they shall ask, it shall be done to them by My Father Who is in Heaven” (Mt 18:18,19). See here the two, the priest and the penitent.

Third. God set up the Sacrament of Holy Communion, so that man could come back to unity in Him, and God could re-enter His creature – man, thus allowing man to return into holy co-union in God, which unity Adam gave away to Satan at the Fall. “Whilst they were at supper, Jesus took bread and blessed and broke and gave to His disciples and said: Take ye and eat. This is My Body. And taking the chalice, He gave thanks and gave to them, saying: Drink ye all of this” (Mt 28:26,27)…“And taking bread, He gave thanks and brake and gave to them, saying: This is My Body, which is given for you. Do this for a commemoration of Me” (Lk 22:19). (See also Jn 6:51-57).

Fourth. God 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. Jesus promised:“I will ask the Father: and He shall give you another Paraclete, that He may abide with you for ever, the Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it sees Him not, nor knows Him. But you shall know Him; because He shall abide with you and shall be in you. But the Paraclete, the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in My Name, He will teach you all things and bring all things to your mind, whatsoever I shall have said to you” (Jn 14:16,26). He told them: “And I send the promise of My Father upon you: but stay you in the city till you be endued with power from on high” (Lk 24:49). Then it was fulfilled: “And suddenly there came a sound from Heaven, as of a mighty wind coming, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them parted tongues, as it were of fire, and it sat upon every one of them, and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they began to speak with divers tongues, according as the Holy Ghost gave them to speak” (Ac 2:2-4).

Fifth. At the Fall, the unity of man and woman in marriage was broken, and the evil one became an intruder in marriage. God established the Sacrament of Matrimony, whereby man and woman could return to holy unity in each other, symbolic of the unity of God and man. Jesus said: “But from the beginning of the creation, God made them male and female. For this cause, a man shall leave his father and mother and shall cleave to his wife, and they two shall be in one flesh. Therefore now they are not two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man put asunder” (Mk 10:6-9). See the conformation of this in the marriage feast of Cana (Jn 2:1-11).

Sixth. At the Fall, man broke the priestly relationship with God, and man could no longer minister in God’s creation, because of his enslavement to the Devil. God established a way for man to minister to Him in purity and truth, through the Sacrament of Holy Order of the Priesthood. Jesus confirmed this: “And taking bread, He gave thanks and brake and gave to them, saying: This is My Body, which is given for you. Do this for a commemoration of Me…And you are they who have continued with Me in My temptations, and I dispose to you, as My Father has disposed to Me, a Kingdom, that you may eat and drink at My table in My Kingdom, and may sit upon thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel” (Lk 22:19,28-30).

Seventh. At the Fall, man incurred the sin of death when he disobeyed God, and became subject to the eternal death of Satan. God 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 – that is – Eternal Life. “And it came to pass afterwards that He went into a city that is called Naim…And when He came nigh to the gate of the city, behold a dead man was carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow…Whom when the Lord had seen, being moved with mercy towards her, He said to her: Weep not. And He came near and touched the bier. And they that carried it stood still. And He said: Young man, I say to thee, arise. And he that was dead sat up and begun to speak. And He gave him to his mother” (Lk 7:11-15). It is also written: “Is any man sick among you? Let him bring in the priests of the Church and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the Name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith shall save the sick man. And the Lord shall raise him up, and if he be in sins, they shall be forgiven him. Confess therefore your sins one to another, and pray one for another, that you may be saved. For the continual prayer of a just man avails much” (Jm 5:14-16).

He who denies any of these Sacraments denies Jesus Christ Who said: “He that shall deny Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father Who is in Heaven” (Mt 10:33). He also said: “Many are called, but few are chosen(Mt 20:16).

In summary for Christian Citizenship:
The first two Sacraments, Baptism and Confessions, are given to us for our personal preparation in pleasing God.
The second two Sacraments, Holy Communion and Confirmation, are for our gaining co-union and unity in 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, which is entrance into Heaven.

These are the requirements given by Jesus for Christian Citizenship. Some people may wear the uniform, but they may not necessarily be citizens! It is written: “I know your tribulation and your poverty, but you art rich. And you are blasphemed by them that say they are Jews and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan…Behold, I will bring of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but do lie. Behold, I will make them to come and adore before your feet. And they shall know that I have loved you” (Apoc 2:9;3:9).

It is only by keeping the Seven Sacraments given to us by God that we have Christian Citizenship: “Now therefore you are no more strangers and foreigners: but you are fellow citizens with the saints and the domestics of God, built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone, in Whom all the building, being framed together, grows up into an holy temple in the Lord in Whom you also are built together into an habitation of God in the Spirit” (Ep 2:19-22).

I encourage all people to seek full citizenship in Christianity.
