Those who deny Christ in any way are not Christians.
The many False Prophets
Saint John says: “Many seducers are gone out into the world who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a seducer and an antichrist” (2Jn 1:7). There are something like 30,000 Protestant churches in the world (the ‘many false prophets’ Mt 24:11), and in recent years there are become many factions within the Catholic Church who do not confess that Jesus Christ is come in the Flesh in Holy Eucharist. It is written: “Little children, it is the last hour: and as you have heard that Antichrist comes, even now there are become many Antichrists, whereby we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us but they were not of us. For if they had been of us, they would no doubt have remained with us: but that they may be manifest, that they are not all of us” (1Jn 2:18,19). These ‘many antichrists’ are heretics, enemies of Christ and His church, are forerunners of the Antichrist, who were not solid, steadfast, genuine Christians, or otherwise they would have remained in the Roman Catholic Church.
Protestants are not Christians – they are Protestants
All people who deny the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in Holy Eucharist are not Christians but are antichrists. This message is a severe warning, and shall not be received well by all Protestants and a great number of Vatican II Catholics. “For all are not Israelites that are of Israel” (Rm 9:6).
The synagogue of Satan
“I know thy tribulation and thy poverty, but thou art rich. And thou art blasphemed by them that say they are Jews and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan…I know thy works. Behold, I have given before thee a door opened, which no man can shut: because thou hast a little strength and hast kept My word and hast not denied My Name. 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 thy feet. And they shall know that I have loved thee” (Apoc 2:9; 3:8,9).
The Perpetual Virginity of Mary
Yet, we must commend those few Protestants and those members of the Vatican II Catholic Church who proclaim with great enthusiasm that Jesus came in the flesh and was born of the flesh of Mary. Saint Jerome, when contending with one who denied the perpetual virginity of Mary, and that she married and had other children said: “Just as we do not deny those things which are written, so do we repudiate things that are not written. That God was born of Virgin we believe, because we read it. That Mary was married after His birth we do not believe because we read it not” (from Encyclical Letter ‘Spiritus Paraclitus’ of Pope Benedict XV written in 1920). I beseech my friends, Vatican II Catholic and Protestant alike, those who deny Jesus in Holy Eucharist, ‘return to the stronghold, ye prisoners of hope’ (Zc 9:12). Consider again what Jesus said: “Behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world” (Mt 28:20), and He is, in Holy Eucharist! The ‘burning bush’ of today is Holy Eucharist!
The Denial of Holy Eucharist
Those who deny that Jesus said in the present tense: ‘This is My Body…This is the Chalice of My Blood,’ are enemies to their own souls. How can anyone deny that at the Last Supper when He took bread into His hands and gave to His disciples, saying: “Take ye and eat (Mt 26:26), This is My Body, Which is given for you” (Lk 22:19). In like manner, after supper, taking also the Chalice into His holy and venerable hands (1Co 11:25), and giving thanks, He blessed, and gave to His disciples, saying: “Drink ye, all of this (Mt 26:27), This is the Chalice of My Blood (Lk 22:20), of the New and Eternal Testament (Mk 14:24; 1Jn 5:11), Which shall be shed for you (Lk 22:20), and for many (Mk 14:24), unto the remission of sins (Mt 26:28). As often as ye do these things, ye shall do them in commemoration of Me” (1Co 11:24-26).
Notice here when Jesus said: ‘This is the Chalice of My Blood…Which shall be shed for you…’ that this is not just one statement, but two distinct statements. ‘This is the Chalice of My Blood’ is a fact right at that moment that did not wait until He shed His Blood at His Crucifixion. The transubstantiation took place at that declaration, at that moment. When He said: ‘Which shall be shed for you..’ was a prophecy of the act which would be finished at Calvary. Anyone who denies either of these two statements and acts is certainly not Christian, and are most certainly heretics and false prophets, to which the 30,000 Protestant sects belong.
Jesus warned us: “But there are some of you that believe not” (Jn 6:65). And again: “Many false prophets shall rise and shall seduce many. And because iniquity has abounded, the charity of many shall grow cold. But he that shall persevere to the end, he shall be saved” (Mt 24:11-13).
To be a Christian
Saint Paul says: “The Chalice of Benediction which we bless, is it not the communion of the Blood of Christ? And the bread which we break, is it not the partaking of the Body of the Lord? For we, being many, are one bread, one body, all that partake of one bread” (1Co 10:16,17). Here he emphasizes that this is ‘partaking of the Body and Blood of Christ’ and not in a symbol or representation thereof. Since we are receiving the Body and Blood of Christ, and being ‘one bread, one body,’ we are formed into the one Mystical Body of Christ. Anyone who denies this is obviously not Catholic, and therefor not Christian. To be a Christian is to be ‘one’ in Christ, in all of His teachings and Sacraments, ‘one bread, one body’ not all the divisions we have today.
These antichrists forget or maybe deny that Jesus said: “I am the Living Bread which came down from Heaven. If any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is My Flesh, for the life of the world.” The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying: ‘How can this Man give us His Flesh to eat?’ Then Jesus said to them: “Amen, amen, I say unto you: except you eat the Flesh of the Son of man and drink His Blood, you shall not have Life in you. He that eats My Flesh and drinks My Blood has Everlasting Life and I will raise him up in the last day. For My Flesh is meat indeed and My Blood is drink indeed. He that eats My Flesh and drinks My Blood abides in Me: and I in him. As the Living Father has sent Me and I live by the Father: so he that eats Me, the same also shall live by Me. This is the Bread that came down from Heaven. Not as your fathers did eat manna and are dead. He that eats this Bread shall live for ever” (Jn 6:51-59).
The Real Presence of Christ
In this Sacrament of His ‘Living Bread’ – Holy Eucharist we receive spirit, grace, and life, in Jesus, and in Eucharist we are made the sons of God: “But as many as received Him, He gave them power to be made the sons of God, to them that believe in His Name, who are born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God” (Jn 1:12,13).
Jesus said: “In that day you shall know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you” (Jn 14:20). We who believe, are the body of Christ (1Co 12:27), and though being many, are one body in Him (Rm 12:5). We are members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones (Ep 5:30). He is the Saviour of His body, and we His Church are subject to Him (Ep 5:23,24). For of Him, and by Him, and in Him, are all things, to Him be glory for ever. Amen (Rm 11:36).
The Eucharistic Reign of Christ
It is through the valid reception of Holy Eucharist that we enter into the Eucharistic reign of Christ, which is the unity and oneness of man in God, and God in man. Jesus prayed to our Father: “Sanctify them in truth. Thy word is truth. As Thou have sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world, and for them do I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified in truth. And not for them only do I pray, but for them also who through their word shall believe in Me. That they all may be one, as Thou, Father, in Me, and I in Thee; that they also may be one in Us: that the world may believe that Thou hast sent Me. And the glory which Thou hast given Me, I have given to them: that they may be one, as We also are One. I in them, and Thou in Me: that they may be made perfect in one: and the world may know that Thou hast sent Me and hast loved them, as Thou hast also loved Me” (Jn 17:17-23).
“For the word of God is living and effectual and more piercing than any two edged sword; and reaching unto the division of the soul and the spirit, of the joints also and the marrow: and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart…Having therefore a great high priest that hath passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God: let us hold fast our confession” (Hb 4:12,14).
The just man lives by faith – not by intellect
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel. For it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believes: to the Jew first and to the Greek. For the justice of God is revealed therein, from faith unto faith, as it is written: The just man lives by faith. For the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against all ungodliness and injustice of those men that detain the truth of God in injustice, because that which is known of God is manifest in them. For God has manifested it unto them, for the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made. His eternal power also and divinity: so that they are inexcusable” (Rm 1:16-20).
All of the Sacraments have been ordained by Christ and are a means of Divine Grace being given to the soul. We look to Jesus, “the author and finisher of faith” (Hb 12:2).
Jesus said: “The time is accomplished and the Kingdom of God is at hand. Repent and believe the Gospel” (Mk 1:15).
When I hesitated in writing this, Our Lord gave me the following verses: “So thou, O son of man, I have made thee a watchman to the house of Israel: therefore thou shalt hear the word from My mouth, and shalt tell it them from Me. When I say to the wicked: O wicked man, thou shalt surely die: if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked man from his way: that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but I will require his blood at thy hand. But if thou tell the wicked man, that he may be converted from his ways, and he be not converted from his way he shall die in his iniquity: but thou hast delivered thy soul” (Ez 33:7-9).
“I will not leave thee: neither will I forsake thee…Remember your prelates who have spoken the word of God to you: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation, Jesus Christ, yesterday, and today: and the same for ever” (Hb 13:5,7,8).
Holy Eucharist: “My Lord and my God” (Jn 20:28).
