The Times Before the Times of the World

“God has delivered us and called us by His holy calling, not according to our own works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the times of the world(2T 1:9). Again it is confirmed: “Unto the hope of life everlasting, which God, Who lies not, has promised before the times of the world” (Titus 1:2). Notice this ‘purpose, grace and promise,’ it all has a specific meaning!

Four words I wish to clarify before we begin:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Begotten Soul

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

Living Soul

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

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

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

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

Two Extraordinary Events

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

The First Extraordinary

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

The Second Extraordinary Event

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

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

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

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

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

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

Consider the two events of Mary and Jesus:

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Great Monarch and Petrus Romanus – Part 2

The completion of the mission of Melchisedech is in Eucharistic man, Christ Jesus
The Great Monarch, Petrus Romanus, who is the completion of the mission of Melchisedech, is given the power to do judgment. This is so because Jesus said: “Amen, amen, I say unto you, that the hour comes, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God, and they that hear shall live. For as the Father has life in Himself, so He has given to the Son also to have life in Himself. And He has given Him power to do judgment, because He is the Son of man(Jn 5:25-27).

The Father gave Jesus power to do judgement, not because He was the Son of God, but because He was the Son of man. Why is this so important? The Son of man the Eternal High Priest, and as such He has the right and duty to do judgement, to rebuke, chastise and remove errant rulers, both secular and ecclesiastical, to forgive sins in Holy Confessions. “Whose sins you shall forgive they are forgiven them, and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained” (Jn 20:23). He has supreme authority to command: “All power is given to Me in Heaven and in earth. 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 28:18-20). Jesus received all power from His Father, and in virtue of this power, He sends His anointed forth into the whole world, to all nations, even as His Father sent Him (Jn 20:21). It is Jesus Who anoints, Who appoints, and Who is the authority over all creation: “You have not chosen Me: but I have chosen you; and have appointed you, that you should go and should bring forth fruit; and your fruit should remain…” (Jn 15:16).

In order to understand this authority and fulfillment of the Word of God, let us return to the beginning stages as it is recorded: “Melchisedech, the king of Salem, bringing forth bread and wine, for he was the priest of the Most High God, blessed him and said: Blessed be Abram by the Most High God, Who created Heaven and earth. And blessed be the Most High God, by whose protection, the enemies are in thy hands. And he (Abraham) gave him (Melchisedech) the tithes of all” (Gn 14:18-20).

Who was this king of Salem? Saint Paul says: “For this Melchisedech was king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him: to whom also Abraham divided the tithes of all: who first indeed by interpretation is king of justice: and then also king of Salem, that is, king of peace, 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 7:1-3).

This king, without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, brought forth bread and wine, and blessed faithful Abraham. Who is Melchisedech? I believe that he is the Son Of God, Second Person of the Holy Trinity, appearing as a man. In this kingly appearance, He celebrated the victory by ‘man’ over the evil empire of aggressive kings. The appearance of the Son of God as ‘the king’ prefigured the arrival of the Son of man as man in His Divine and Human nature.  The bread and wine were a prefiguring of the consecration into the Body and Blood of Christ at the Last Supper. This Body and Blood of Christ, Holy Eucharist, becomes Eucharistic man in those who receive Him worthily in Holy Communion. The Son of God became the Son of man, and the office of Melchisedech was completed in Christ in the ‘Divine sense.’ But that office must be completed in the ‘human sense’ and that completion occurs in Eucharistic man who has been transformed into the newness of life and the fulness of Christ (Ep 4:13).

“I saw heaven opened: and behold a white horse. And he that sat upon him was called faithful and true: and with justice doth 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 hath on his garment and on his thigh Written: King of kings and Lord of lords(Apoc 19:11-16).

Petrus Romanus, the Great Monarch, is the completion in absolute faith of the mission of Abraham and defeats the evil kings of Zionism, Freemasonry and Communism. As the king of Justice and Peace met Abraham after the slaughter of the evil ones, so too, the Son of man, Christ the King, will meet Petrus Romanus, Priest of God and King, and celebrate the Consecration of the Last Supper and the Victory won for us on the Cross! “For the priesthood being translated, it is necessary that a translation also be made of the law” (Hb 7:12).

Of all that we have said, we are given encouragement and confirmation by Jesus Christ Himself: “Yet that which you have, hold fast till I come. And he that shall overcome and keep My words unto the end, I will give him power over the nations, and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and as the vessel of a potter they shall be broken, as I also have received of My Father. And I will give him the Morning Star(Apoc 2:25-28). The Morning Star is Eucharist man, Christ Jesus.

Be alert for the following Prophetic Events?

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

The conversion of all Israel?

The arrival of THE Antichrist?

The coming out of the Ark of the Covenant?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Make all things New

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

God had to do a new thing.

God has already prepared the new thing.

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

 

What happened before the beginning of the world?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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