The Book of Truth and “millennialism” – a Crusader’s query

A+M+D+G

There are 2 parts to this event – the first being the accusation of “millennialism” by a priest; and the second being the anti-mdm blogsite which also accused the Book of Truth in regards to this. The biggest problem is that people make judgements without knowing the facts. You can’t judge a book unless you have read every word within it. First of all you need to know what the word “millenialism” means and where the heresy comes in (as there are different interpretations of it)

This is our story. I think we can all identify with the issues being faced here and having the occasional doubt , or having someone throw something at us, to which we have no immediate reply. I hope you have time to read it all, as well as the extra articles (with links). I know Donna and I learnt a lot. To begin with, we both only had a rudimentary knowledge of the issue.

It all started on Mon, Jul 17, 2017  when “Crusader C” emailed us

Hi (Remnant Survivor)  & DONNA

perhaps you can help? We are having a bit of a “wobble” here at the moment. One of … priests from…, a beautiful holy priest, came to bless  (a crusader’s)  little house.. She showed him the prayer book and the Book of Truth, neither of these he had heard of before. After a brief look – I’m not sure what exactly he saw – he told her that the Church teaches against millenarianism, that when Christ returns as the Just Judge, that is “it”, the end of the cosmos, no thousand years of the Kingdom.

That really confounds me! I always understood that the “kingdom would come” once the Lord returned, that Satan would be banished from the world and we would enter a Eucharistic age of peace where the Church would function the way it was designed to. I think of Isaiah chpt 2 where arms and war are banished from the nations. And what about Revelations chpt 20 & 21, “See, I am making all things new!”. Even Our Lady of Fatima speaks of a time of peace after Russia is converted and becomes a light to the whole world. Other prophecies of the Church mention a Great Monarch and an angelic pope (who I’ve imagined is St Peter returned in glory). Are we all mistaken? Is it possible that the Church has it wrong in its dogma? This has upset  (crusader N), also (crusader A) – I told him to pray Crusade Prayer 86, “Release me from the torment of doubt”- I have always had answers after I’ve prayed that prayer.

What is your take on this? Have you come across this one before?

In my search for Milleniallism I came across the website…(this is an anti-mdm site)

(See Crusader C’s reply to this article on the aforementioned website – refuting it  –  further down.)

Looking forward to your reply!!

…. (Crusader C)

Remnant Survivor replied:

“Dear  Crusaders C, A and N,

… Milleniarianism or millenialism  is often quoted when anyone speaks of certain prophecies.

It refers to Christ’s reign in 1000 years of peace (Revelation). Some people think that it means that Christ will walk the earth with us at this time.

Other people  (rightly) say that Christ will not walk this earth again.

Many people misunderstand what the Catholic Church teaches about this..

What is in the Book of Truth aligns perfectly with Church Teachings.

I have attached some articles. See if they help you to understand it a bit better.

There are many false interpretations of what this term actually means.

Please forward this to A and N.”

The next day, (R.S.) also remembered:

Hi C,

I remembered some time ago I read about the “middle coming”(St Cyril of Jerusalem).

See documents attached.

Pass on the readings – it is important that people are equipped to fight any arguments which may be used to distract them from the Truth and from this very important Mission.

Most good priests reject the Book of Truth.

Remember it said in Daniel that the Truth would be “locked’ until the end.

Daniel refers to a “future book”.

The readings I sent to Crusader C. were:

And

This famous excerpt from a sermon by St. Bernard of Clairvaux (Sermo 5, In Adventu Domini, 1-3: Opera Omnia, Edit. Cisterc. 4 {1966}, 188-190 is used in the Roman Office of Readings for Wednesday of the First Week of Advent. It speaks of not 2 but 3 comings of the Lord.

See it at:    https://www.crossroadsinitiative.com/media/articles/three-comings-of-the-lord-st-bernard/

  • And also “Millennialism Properly Defined” by  by Ronald L. Conte Jr.
    (very lengthy, but comprehensive, Catholic article).

See it at:        http://www.catholicplanet.com/articles/article126.htm

  • Then I remembered reading an article on the “hidden coming” by St Cyril:

http://biblefalseprophet.com/2016/03/04/st-cyril-of-jerusalem-on-the-hidden-coming-of-the-lord-the-warning/

Crusader C’s final say and Action taken (on 18 July, 2017)

(Crusader C.): “With this particular issue, searching out what Millenarianism actually was (as my Catchesim was not very informative, only a passing remark with reference to Denzinger-Schonberg dogma which I found online) I came across a website, printed out its “refuting MDM” over this issue. As I read it, errors leapt off the page at me. So I sat down and wrote a response, in which the answers actually came to me. This is what I wrote (I think under the influence of the Holy Spirit)

Meantime I have just posted a comment on that blogsite.

Do you know, through every wobble that happens I find I grow STRONGER.

Always, always, I pray the Crusade 86 prayer “Release me from the torment of doubt”  and always answers come to me!

This is what I commented (on the anti mdm website):

‘There’s a TOTAL INACCURACY at the head of your blogsite on “The Millenarian”. You say ‘The Church rejects the notion that Christ will VISIBLY reign on earth for 1,000 years following His Second Coming. Maria Divine Mercy actively promotes this idea.

In fact, NO, she doesn’t! In her messages from Jesus Christ He states quite categorically that He will never walk the earth again – so your words are quite wrong. Anyway, she does not “promote” any “idea”. The words are not her own. It is Jesus making this clear. He also says that no human person can interpret the prophecies and symbolism of the Book of Revelations. He alone, the Lamb, is the one who breaks the Seven Seals, which He is doing in the messages given to Maria Divine Mercy, because, in these crucial times, He will not leave us orphans. We need to understand and be aware of the grand deception in progress.

Yes, agreed, the kingdom to come will HAVE NO END, but for a thousand years Satan will be bound. That does not mean the kingdom will only last for a thousand years, but men and women will inhabit Paradise for that period of time without any interference from Satan; they will live in communion with God as it was originally meant to be, had Adam and Eve not fallen.

Read Chapter 20 & 21 of Revelations. It states that after the Beast is defeated and the devil sent to the bottomless pit, all the souls martyred for their witness to Christ during the tribulation will be raised with Him and will reign for a thousand years. The remainder of the dead will not be raised to life until the end of this period at the SECOND resurrection and the final judgment.

When Christ returns in glory so that every eye will see Him, He snatches all those who belong to Him into the clouds while the Heavens and the Earth are renewed after the devastation of the great tribulation. He returns with all the saints, the 144,000 and a huge multitude from every nation “including those who have come out of the great tribulation and washed their robes in the Blood of the Lamb”.

A thousand years is mentioned THREE times in Chapter 20 alone as if to emphasize this period. Maybe that is why Our Lord, speaking to us through Maria Divine Mercy’s messages, says, “Know that the thousand years referred to in the Book of Revelation means JUST THAT.” (28 May, 2012) “The words contained in My Holy Book, the Holy Bible, do not lie!” (23 February 2012) Perhaps this could be a divine correction of a misunderstanding? But it certainly ISN’T Maria Divine Mercy speaking – as you suggest!’ “

Comment (Remnant Survivor:

Somehow I doubt very much that this blogsite will publish Crusader C’s correction, but at least it gives them food for thought and hopefully plants a little seed of Truth

Crusader C. emailed Donna on 23 July 2017

Subject: Millenarianism

“Good morning DONNA

Thank you for all your input on this tricky subject. And yes, God DOES have a sense of humour – I have experienced that too in my walk. And I do love Jeremiah*, so that was wonderful His leading you and me to that passage. … 

Yes, whenever I have a “wobble” with MDM I always, always, pray Prayer 86 “Release me from the torment of Doubt”. Every time, without fail, the Lord has given me an answer within 24 hours.

As your Mum predicted, Donna, they didn’t publish my comment. That’s Ok, the process of writing it helped me, and others. I sent it to Crusader P … and he has spread it around other …  members. Anyway, thank you again for your concern and all that you have shared. We are all here to support each other in the ongoing journey.   …

God bless you and your family abundantly.

(Crusader) C”

Jeremiah*  – see Reading at end of this article

Days later, (on 22nd July) Donna  replied :

 “Hi C…,,

I know that mum has already provided an answer for you because I didn’t have time – but I rang her to check. I’m going to call this “An answer to Millenialaism” because mum may need to publish some information for others struggling with interpretations. This ( see Bible reading below) is just what God gave me, in response to the priest’s objections but it’s nothing if not direct! 

The evil one is very good at needling us with tormenting accusing thoughts at times including through others. I know that when I have experienced this, and I certainly have, that I have asked Our Lord for clarification and wisdom and He has always provided it in the most amazing way- sometimes sooner, sometimes later, eradicating doubt and it ends up strengthening my faith even further and expanding my trust and understanding. This is actually what he promised to do when we work through these false challenges to His Word or confused interpretations, so it’s no surprise really. 🙂 

For myself, I knew that the definition of Millennialism didn’t exactly match what MDM described but I couldn’t remember what was the difference. I know the Bible itself says there will be 1000 years of peace and I don’t think we can say that has ever happened in History yet, so it must be still to come!

… I prayed and then opened the Bible for an answer to your priest and the ideas that supposedly clashed because God gave me His thoughts. It describes both the priest’s limited understanding and appreciation of God’s Word and plan, and also the chastisement, I think. I opened this on the night you asked me about it:- after asking God for an answer for you. The first line is the funniest. God has a sense of humour! Not what I was expecting! Anyway, I printed the words at the bottom. 

Furthermore, I afterwards opened on another passage (this time from the Book of Truth) under inspiration to do so. I did this today– just before writing to you and I opened on this! What are the chances? I hope God’s Word helps you all therefore and strengthens you also.

 Anything unclear will be revealed in time (and with prayer) to the degree we trust Him.”

Comment by R.S. I love the readings Donna always gets in response to issues and problems we have. It is to affirm all of us that Jesus always answers us when we ask for help.

Donna’s Readings: 

  • Jeremiah 4: 22- Jeremiah 5: 19

22 For my people are stupid, they do not know me; they are slow-witted children, and they have no understanding: they are clever enough at doing wrong, but do not know how to do right.

23 I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light.

24 I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly.

25 I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled.

26 I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the Lord, and by his fierce anger.

27 For thus hath the Lord said, The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end.

28 For this shall the earth mourn, and the heavens above be black; because I have spoken it, I have purposed it, and will not repent, neither will I turn back from it.

29 The whole city shall flee for the noise of the horsemen and bowmen; they shall go into thickets, and climb up upon the rocks: every city shall be forsaken, and not a man dwell therein.

30 And when thou art spoiled, what wilt thou do? Though thou clothest thyself with crimson, though thou deckest thee with ornaments of gold, though thou rentest thy face with painting, in vain shalt thou make thyself fair; thy lovers will despise thee, they will seek thy life.

31 For I have heard a voice as of a woman in travail, and the anguish as of her that bringeth forth her first child, the voice of the daughter of Zion, that bewaileth herself, that spreadeth her hands, saying, Woe is me now! for my soul is wearied because of murderers.

Run ye to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem, and see now, and know, and seek in the broad places thereof, if ye can find a man, if there be any that executeth judgment, that seeketh the truth; and I will pardon it.

And though they say, The Lord liveth; surely they swear falsely.

O Lord, are not thine eyes upon the truth? thou hast stricken them, but they have not grieved; thou hast consumed them, but they have refused to receive correction: they have made their faces harder than a rock; they have refused to return.

Therefore I said, Surely these are poor; they are foolish: for they know not the way of the Lord, nor the judgment of their God.

I will get me unto the great men, and will speak unto them; for they have known the way of the Lord, and the judgment of their God: but these have altogether broken the yoke, and burst the bonds.

Wherefore a lion out of the forest shall slay them, and a wolf of the evenings shall spoil them, a leopard shall watch over their cities: every one that goeth out thence shall be torn in pieces: because their transgressions are many, and their backslidings are increased.

How shall I pardon thee for this? thy children have forsaken me, and sworn by them that are no gods: when I had fed them to the full, they then committed adultery, and assembled themselves by troops in the harlots’ houses.

They were as fed horses in the morning: every one neighed after his neighbour’s wife.

Shall I not visit for these things? saith the Lord: and shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?

10 Go ye up upon her walls, and destroy; but make not a full end: take away her battlements; for they are not the Lord’s.

11 For the house of Israel and the house of Judah have dealt very treacherously against me, saith the Lord.

12 They have belied the Lord, and said, It is not he; neither shall evil come upon us; neither shall we see sword nor famine:

13 And the prophets shall become wind, and the word is not in them: thus shall it be done unto them.

14 Wherefore thus saith the Lord God of hosts, Because ye speak this word, behold, I will make my words in thy mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them.

15 Lo, I will bring a nation upon you from far, O house of Israel, saith the Lord: it is a mighty nation, it is an ancient nation, a nation whose language thou knowest not, neither understandest what they say.

16 Their quiver is as an open sepulchre, they are all mighty men.

17 And they shall eat up thine harvest, and thy bread, which thy sons and thy daughters should eat: they shall eat up thy flocks and thine herds: they shall eat up thy vines and thy fig trees: they shall impoverish thy fenced cities, wherein thou trustedst, with the sword.

18 Nevertheless in those days, saith the Lord, I will not make a full end with you.

19 And it shall come to pass, when ye shall say, Wherefore doeth the Lord our God all these things unto us? then shalt thou answer them, Like as ye have forsaken me, and served strange gods in your land, so shall ye serve strangers in a land that is not your’s.

20 Declare this in the house of Jacob, and publish it in Judah, saying,

21 Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not:

22 Fear ye not me? saith the Lord: will ye not tremble at my presence, which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass it: and though the waves thereof toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it?

23 But this people hath a revolting and a rebellious heart; they are revolted and gone.

24 Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the Lord our God, that giveth rain, both the former and the latter, in his season: he reserveth unto us the appointed weeks of the harvest.

25 Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden good things from you.

26 For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men.

27 As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich.

Following is the reading from the Book of Truth Donna opened up – days later – just before she replied to Crusader C’s email:

June 9, 2013

My beloved daughter, the pain you endure physically at this time is to save souls, who are so far removed from Me, that were you not to offer this to Me as a victim soul, they would be lost to Me forever. Always remember how much it hurts Me and breaks My Heart when I lose even just one soul.

My Love for humanity remains intact, for nothing could ever stop Me from loving each precious soul. I love them so much that the Gifts I have given you, My daughter, of seeing all of God’s children as He sees them, with a purity of heart, is never ending. This is why you suffer so much, My little one. It is not because of those whose anger insults you, but it is because of those souls who are in terrible darkness and whose destiny terrifies you, that you endure these new physical afflictions.

Please understand that when you become impatient and upset, because of these painful trials, that they are nothing compared to the intense suffering which faces those souls who will be taken by the beast. It will mean nothing when compared to souls who must endure the pain of suffering in Purgatory. How little this will mean to you when you see how I will pluck those souls, who otherwise would not be able to save themselves, from the evil grasp of the beast.

My daughter, no matter how painful this suffering is, it will not matter when I unite God’s children, when the most Glorious Paradise will descend on the Great Day. When the New Jerusalem comes down upon the world to the sound of trumpets, the lights will fill the skies and all will be silent then before the sound of angels, whose singing will reach every soul before the final moment.

This will be the last hour when I come to Judge the living and the dead. 

Your Jesus

 

Cardinal George Pell – Is this prophecy about him?

A+M+D+G

“My dearly beloved daughter, how My Heart is breaking because of the plight of My sacred servants and the difficult trials which they will have to face because of My enemies. My most esteemed Bishop will be the subject of a terrible miscarriage of Justice. Then, when he has been demonized, many of My sacred servants will be taken to task, should they dare to utter grievances against the new laws, which are not of Me and which they will have to witness being introduced into My Churches.” (April 10, 2014 @ 5:22pm).

Read the complete prophecy at:  https://missionofsalvation.wordpress.com/message-1096/

Do you know why he is being persecuted?

Defender of Church Doctrine:

An article on  Friday, April 22, 2016 stated:

  • “There was puzzlement in Rome about the appointment of Cardinal Pell to the Curia. The most credible explanation seems that Pope Francis thus, made the same attempt as that made by the Pope John Paul II with Walter Kasper:  Push back his influence in the home country by transportation and involve him in the papal agendaBut the Australian cardinal moved to Rome not of his convictions and proved in the Synod of Bishops as very staunch defender of Catholic marriage and morality.  At the Synod in 2014, he continued his defense against the Kasper theses, although his microphone  had been turned off by the Synod  against the rules of procedure” See the article at: http://eponymousflower.blogspot.com.au/2016/04/shot-across-bow-for-cardinal-pell-non.html

 

  • In an interview reported in Catholic World Report  on 20 Oct. 2015, Australia’s Cardinal Pell stated that, in a universal church, doctrine does not change from one country to the next . “You cannot have two people in the same situation with the same dispositions; one goes to Communion and it (is) a sacrilege and in the country next-door it is a cause of grace,” …“‘Catholic’ means ‘universal,’ not ‘continental,’” he said.”

He stood up against manipulation at the Synod.

  • He thumped his fist on the table (after they disconnected his microphone) and boomed “Stop manipulating this Synod!”
  • He was one of the 13 cardinals who wrote a letter to PF respectfully questioning proceedings. Cardinal Pell was the one who presented the letter to the pf. Read here about the pf’s reaction. See
    “The 13 Cardinals’ Letter is the most powerful accusation made … against any other pontificate”   by Remnant Clergy    18 Oct. 2015
  • When critics started condemning the 4 cardinals and their Dubia , Cardinal Pell said: “How can it be  wrong to ask a question?”
  • He has spoke against liberal interpretations of Amoris Laetoitia . He is a staunch defender of The Faith and marriage.
  • He tried to reform Vatican finances as instructed and was strangely curtailed.
  • He was removed (along with Card Burke and other faithful clergy) from the Vatican’s Congregation for Divine Worship, the body in charge of liturgical questions. See: http://www.catholicculture.org/news/headlines/index.cfm?storyid=29774
  • He is not anti-traditional either, as far as celebrating Mass. In the Sydney diocese, he performed Confirmations for the Traditional Latin Mass community.

 Courage and integrity stand out in his character.

When he was Archbishop of Melbourne, he wanted to reform the Religious Education curriculum in Catholic schools. He was told that if he did this, they (the whole board) would resign – and they did!

Years ago, in the Sydney Diocese, he made headlines in the newspaper because he refused to give Communion to a practising homosexual.

In his defence:

(From Special to Crux April 26, 2016)

“…Robert Hennesy-Hawks, 74, now retired and living in the Australian state of Queensland, was a financial adviser in Ballarat at the time Pell was a priest there, and vigorously defended him.

“As someone who was actually in Ballarat at the same time as Cardinal George Pell, distinct from many outspoken critics, the assertion that he ‘must have known what was going on’ is dubious,” Hawks has written.

“During this period I was running a business in Ballarat and in contact with a large number of businesses, families, and most legal and accounting firms in Ballarat and surrounding areas,” Hawks said. I had five children in the Catholic School system… and I was also serving as a Justice of the Peace, with a particular involvement with the child protection authority.

“Yet at no time was my wife or I or our children or to the best of our knowledge our friends, aware of the slightest rumour of child sexual abuse in the Ballarat area,” he said.

Hennesy-Hawks also rejected the idea that Pell should have taken action in the case of a notorious abuser priest named Gerald Ridsdale, who served in Ballarat.

Pell at that time was a 28-year-old junior priest, recently returned from studying at Oxford University, not involved in parish duties, but completely immersed in his very demanding role at Aquinas College, as it transformed from a Catholic Teachers College to a University,” Hennesy-Hawks said.

He insisted that later as an archbishop, Pell did take actionas soon as he had the power and authority to do so.”

Andrew Bolt, an agnostic political commentator on radio and television who recently did a one-hour interview with Pell on Sky News, declared himself appalled at the way the Royal Commission seemed to presume Pell’s guilt.

In another piece, Bolt called Pell “the victim of one of the most vicious witch hunts to disgrace this country,” describing the process as “shameful, disgusting, and frightening.”

Kenneth Wiltshire, a professor of public administration at the University of Queensland Business School, suggested that going after Pell now for things that allegedly occurred fifty years ago is legally dubious, in a letter that he wrote to The Australian newspaper, on March 5.

“Expecting witnesses to answer in detail for events that occurred half a century ago is jeopardous, even when there is access to diaries and other records,” he wrote.

“In this context, it seems grossly unfair for counsel to challenge recollections of events as if they occurred yesterday,” he wrote, “demanding to know what words were used in a particular conversation on a particular day decades ago, or to imply that failure to remember is a failure to assist the commission.”

Anne Lastman, a columnist for the Australian journals of current affairs News Weekly, suggested Pell is being turned into a “scapegoat.”

“As we watched the proceedings from Rome, it became obvious that truth was not the goal, but a mere side-issue,” she wrote….”

On  Jun 29, 2017, Phil Lawler wrote:

(Phil Lawler has been a Catholic journalist for more than 30 years. He has edited several Catholic magazines and written eight books. Founder of Catholic World News, he is the news director and lead analyst at CatholicCulture.org)

The trial-by-media has already concluded. Public opinon, which does not concern itself with the niceties of the legal process, has already reached a verdict. The cardinal has been found guilty, before he even made his defense—indeed, before the actual charges were made public….

The very public trial of Cardinal Pell is a frightening spectacle, a reminder of how difficult it is to preserve the rights of someone who is accused of a heinous crime, and how easy it is for rumors to ruin a reputation. Let’s pray for a prompt, fair hearing and a clear, just result.” See his complete article at: https://www.catholicculture.org/commentary/the-city-gates.cfm?id=1470

In conclusion:

Pell is a danger to modernist evil plans. Even if he goes free (which he won’t) his name will have been irreparably slandered. He will suffer for The Lord’s sake.

Pray for him to be consoled by Jesus Christ in this, to have courage and not lose faith or hope. Pray through St. Gerard Majella- especially for his false accusers.

We stand with you Cardinal Pell. This sad and wrongful accusation has been prophesied. We believe your innocence and we pray for you!

POPE videos: Are they really prayer intentions?

A+M+D+G

Since Jan 2016, there has been a “pope video” released each month. These are called “Prayer Intentions”. The funny thing is that not one spiritual word is uttered during these videos – God, or Jesus, or the Holy Spirit…. are not mentioned. Although  in the first one you see a replica of baby Jesus (to get you in), beads that are NOT rosary beads (look at it carefully; they are Muslim prayer beads ) and a Jewish symbol and a buddha!!!

Look at the titles of the videos – they are all couched in humanist, relativist, and communist terms. (They are listed at the end of this post.)

At the centre of each video is a political, economic, or social agenda. Lots of words like solidarity, respect, opportunities, compensation eventhe common good and contribution to society”. How communist is that? His agenda of the one World Religion is very evident – “interreligious dialogue”, “restoring full ecclesial communion”.

The pope’s prayer for persecuted Christians is a few years too late. Not a word did he say when thousands were being decapitated, children and all. Why speak up now? To make himself look compassionate?

“…building of a society that places the human person at the center.”  God should be the centre of our (Christian) society, not human beings. (In fact the CCC states that the “Eucharist” is the source and summit of the Christian Life).

These errors such as modernism, relativism and humanism were condemned by popes over 100 years ago in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Emotive terms are used such as “the marginalized,  small  farmers, indigenous peoples, children, refugees, peace and justice, respect for women. Sounds like a politician, who is lobbying up support. Support for what” ? A place where  everyone can be the same, yet different – where there will be no mention of a “Catholic God”, where there is no hell; where no repentance is necessary; where God is all merciful and He does not judge? Is this what he’s aiming for?

For youth he “prayed” that they should immerse themselves in the great causes of the world”The world?? Where we are the centre of the universe – not God? Is this what we should be aiming for? What about our true purpose – to know, love and serve God faithfully in this life in order to merit our inheritance – to be happy with God forever in heaven?

The greatest causes of the world should be the salvation of souls (especially our own), and the spreading of Truth  in order that others may be saved. That Truth of course is Christ’s teachings. But no, this won’t happen because he doesn’t believe in proselytism, or a “Catholic God” or that you should even keep the commandments. On World Youth Day he told the youth to go and make “chaos”.

If you have missed out on seeing any of the pope videos,, you can watch them here: www.thepopevideo.org

Note that most of them have a one-line description, but since March this year, the text of the video has been written beneath it.  I wonder why. Is it because people are not getting the message by just watching it? or to make it easier to quote from the video?   Or is it to emphasize the importance of the message – to make sure we “get” it?  Is time perhaps running out?

Another viewpoint on these videos:

When Is a Prayer Intention Not a Prayer Intention?  This may seem like an obvious and trivial point. However, it is emblematic of the PR pontificate of Francis. When you think about it, juicing up monthly prayer intentions with cleverly produced agitprop turns “intentions” into something other than subjects for prayer. Your emotions are deliberately manipulated to promote an ideological agenda. Pope Francis can’t say “all religions are the same,” but the video sure can.” Read the whole article at: http://corbiniansbear.blogspot.com.au/2016/05/pope-videos-fake_5.html

11. November, 2016: Countries Receiving Refugees

That the countries which take in a great number of displaced persons and refugees may find support for their efforts which show solidarity.

12. December, 2016: End to Child‐Soldiers

That the scandal of child‐soldiers may be eliminated the world over.

13. January, 2017: Christians serving humanity

For all who contribute through prayer and fraternal charity to restoring full ecclesial communion in service of the challenges facing humanity.

14. February 2017: Welcome the needy

For those who are weighed down, especially the poor, refugees and marginalized, that they might find welcome and support in our communities.

15. March, 2017: Help persecuted Christians

That persecuted Christians may be supported by the prayers and material help of the whole Church.

How many people are being persecuted because of their faith, forced to abandon their homes, their places of worship, their lands, their loved ones!
They are persecuted and killed because they are Christians. Those who persecute them make no distinction between the religious communities to which they belong.
I ask you: how many of you pray for persecuted Christians?
Do it with me, that they may be supported by the prayers and material help of all the Churches and communities.

16. April 2017: Youth

For young people, that they might know how to respond generously to the vocation God has given them, and immerse themselves in the great causes of the world.

I know that you, young people, don’t want to be duped by a false freedom, always at the beck and call of momentary fashions and fads. I know that you aim high. Is that true, or am I wrong?
Don’t leave it to others to be the protagonists of change.
You, young people, are the ones who hold the future!  I ask you to be builders of the world, to work for a better world.  It is a challenge, yes it is a challenge. Do you accept it?
Pray with me that young people may respond generously to their own vocation and mobilize for the great causes of the world.” 

17. May, 2017: Christians of Africa, witnesses for peace

That Christians in Africa, in imitation of the Merciful Jesus, may give prophetic witness to reconciliation, justice, and peace.

“When we look at Africa, we see much more than its great natural richness.
We see its joie de vivre, and above all, we see grounds for hope in Africa’s rich intellectual, cultural and religious heritage.
But we cannot fail to see the fratricidal wars decimating peoples and destroying these natural and cultural resources.
Let us join with our brothers and sisters of this great continent, and pray together that Christians in Africa, in imitation of the Merciful Jesus, may give prophetic witness to reconciliation, justice, and peace.”

N.B. Does this mean that they don’t? that they perhaps are causing the trouble? Who are the ones being slaughtered?

18. June 2017: Eliminate arms trade

Let us pray all together that national leaders may firmly commit themselves to ending the arms trade which victimizes so many innocent people.

It is an absurd contradiction to speak of peace, to negotiate peace, and at the same time, promote or permit the arms trade.
Is this war or that war really a war to solve problems or is it a commercial war for selling weapons in illegal trade and so that the merchants of death get rich?
Let us put an end to this situation. Let us pray all together that national leaders may firmly commit themselves to ending the arms trade which victimizes so many innocent people.

Is this to ensure that the majority are unarmed, except for the military doing whatever the government agenda tells them to? What about when the NWO owns all governments – which they arguably already do, and commands evil, turning against good (or all) people? It seems like another strategy for control in the future NWO.

 

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire

A+M+D+G+

Where there’s smoke…

The article mentions that the Bishop of Rome has given directions for a change of “Eucharistic Liturgy”.

This article states:

 “My confidential source of Santa Marta, referring heard some discussion – between lunch and the other – he told me that in fact the change of the Mass, wanted by Bergoglio, has PURPOSE ONLY: IS ECUMENICAL. I.E. “CREATE” A MASS THAT IS NOT IN OPPOSITION TO THE PROTESTANTS AND THEN A LITURGY THAT WE CAN CELEBRATE “IN COMMUNION”.

And ‘This is the truth. And this is his intention. A perennial liturgy that is ecumenical, however. Obviously I predict that Bergoglio to do this will also change the text of the “Consecration”. Which would make the Mass invalid. And I predict that even those who will refuse to celebrate with this “new rite” will be considered out of the Church. They are coming up these days. And facciamocene a reason. THE BISHOP OF ROME WANTS TO BECOME “EL PRESIDENTE” OF THE VARIOUS DENOMINATIONS; and to do that Jesus Christ is selling at a price much lower than Judas.

As for me, since I am a priest, I will refuse to celebrate this type of liturgy. And I tell you that you will return to being Christians “catacombs.”

THE INTENT OF BERGOGLIO, then get to this. CHANGE TO “UNITE.”     …

My Santamartese “source tells me that it is almost done.
Only a matter of time.
Mala tempora currunt.

I suggest to all readers to pray the Madonna with many Rosaries. Not to dismiss these times. Because here we are. But because they help you to keep the faith. And to be persevering in time of persecution. That will come soon.”

  • Shortly afterwards, Fra Cristoforo disappeared from the blogosphere. People wondered whether it was all a deception or perhaps was he too close to the truth and he was found out??

More ‘smoke’?

  • Then, on 20th June, another article was published by John Supplers  of Veritas Vincit entitled: Vatican reportedly working on “Ecumenical Rite of Mass” for joint worship with Protestants”

 “…Italian journalist and Vatican expert Marco Tosatti has reported that Pope Francis has formed a top-secret commission tasked with implementing a new kind of “mass” that is acceptable to Catholics, Lutherans and Anglicans.

The commission consists of representatives from all three denominations, all bound to secrecy.

The journalist, who is well known in Italy for his accurate reporting of all things happening in the Vatican, has said that while this news is merely a “rumor” at this point, his “sources are usually good.”

… According to Tosatti, the central issue lies in the Eucharist, since the  …. Catholics believe in Transubstantiation and the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist, while Protestants believe that it is merely a memorial.

Tosatti reports that a possible “solution” being proposed is that the words of Consecration be replaced by silence:…”

 Unexpected Confirmation:

  • Donna had just finished reading this article and opened up the Bible at random (as she does each night). The next day – on 22/06/2017 7:20 AM-  Donna wrote: “This is so relevant. I had just finished reading about the changes to the Mass (the aforementioned article published on 20th June). Last night’s random reading that I opened on was… (B of T: Sept 13, 2011) “Changes to be introduced in the church which will contradict the Word of God.”   It’s Confirmation.”
  • More Confirmation: (Tt Crusader answered her)
    ”Hi Donna,

    I was just reading this message yesty (yesterday), same topic as yours, about the changes coming to the Mass.” (B of T: 25th July, 2013)

“…My Son’s Church is being stolen and soon His Body will no longer be present therein…

 …Soon the antichrist will appear and his rise to fame will start in Jerusalem. Once he appears in public, everything in my Son’s Church will change, quickly. The new rules will be introduced.

Many cardinals, bishops, priests, nuns and ordinary people will be excommunicated, if they do not follow the new rules or adore the false prophet”

Also Tt added later:

  • “Thunder and lightning will descend upon the Temple of the Lord

January 3, 2015 @ 8:20pm

“…  Because the Truth has been twisted and the Word of God ignored, people will continue to turn their backs on the Holy Word of God. Their descent into darkness will result in a punishment by God, the Most High.

It pains My Eternal Father to see the depths to which man has fallen in the pursuit of anything that brings him pleasure. But, the day when the Holy Sacrifice ends, and the hour that the imposters desecrate My Altar, will be the final thorn by which they will pierce My Side.

At the appointed time, thunder and lightning will descend upon the Temple of the Lord and it will come crashing down. Woe to the man who participates in this sacrilege for he will be cut off from every reprieve and he will fall into the abyss like a stone. No one will defend the man who desecrates My Altar then, for once the Hand of God descends like a heavy axe, they will realise the Truth.

…   The Truth must be upheld for if you accept anything but the Truth – the Word of God – you will end up with nothing.

Your Jesus”

  • Donna’s reading on the night following (22nd June):

“There is only one Truth. One Light. Anything else is a lie”.     1 January 2012 @ 5:30pm

“…When you try to analyse My Word, you will find you are unable to do this successfully. No amount of analysis can change the Truth of what I say.

No one, … has the authority to twist the meaning of My Holy Word, so that it becomes more acceptable in your eyes. This applies to My Word contained in the Holy Bible and My Word contained within the  Messages.

The Truth must be told. My Holy Word must never be diluted, or the Truth tampered with.

My Holy Word must never be changed, adjusted or twisted, so that it becomes a lie.

…  They have twisted my Teachings for centuries to suit their avarice, lust, pride and greed.

… But beware. Those Christians who believe that the twisted truth of My Teachings will be acceptable in My Eyes will be shocked during The Warning. …  I urge these people to accept that I Am the Truth and the Light. There is only One Truth, One Light. Anything else is a lie.

Your Teacher and Redeemer
Saviour of all Mankind, Jesus Christ”

Donna’s comment to Tt: You know I told a priest once and gave him the message years ago about changes to the Mass. He told me it wouldn’t happen- they couldn’t, he said! I wonder what he will think when he’s eventually told that they are! I hope he remembers the message I gave him.

 

Is it only smoke, or is there fire?

Key Questions:  Why is the Commission “a secret commission”?

Why are Lutherans and Anglicans involved in changing the Mass?

 

There will, no doubt,  be a new explanation for the Eucharist, which will be couched in humanism.

It will obviously be promoted as a symbol of unity, of welcoming all, of bonding together. Words from the Bible will once again be used very cleverly in order to deceive.

Much damage has already been done to the Sacrament of the Eucharist by Amoris Laetitia. It too, was already planned way before the Synods took place. It was a foregone conclusion.

Get rid of the Real Presence and we have the “Abomination of Desolation” foretold in Old Testament. It is necessary for the New One World Religion. We might not see the results straight away – the world stage has to be set and ready.

We, the Remnant Army,  must be ready.  Jesus is depending on us. We have to warn our fellow Catholics who have no idea of what is happening and will just go along with the changes.

Fore-warned is fore-armed!

Only a False Prophet could speak such words (Part 1)

A+M+D+G

God has warned us in His Holy Scriptures:

“A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth that which is evil. For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh” (Lk 6:45).

“Be not deceived, God is not mocked” (Gal 6:7).

“And he opened his mouth unto blasphemies against God” (Apoc 13:6)…

For fools speak folly, and their minds plot iniquity: to practice ungodliness,
to utter error concerning the Lord, to leave the craving of the hungry unsatisfied, and to deprive the thirsty of drink.7 The villainies of villains are evil; they devise wicked devices to ruin the poor with lying words, even when the plea of the needy is right
”.( Isaiah 32:6-7)

“And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon.” (Rev.13:11)

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”  (Matthew 7:15)

What is a false prophet?

A prophet is one who speaks to us God’s word. A “false” prophet speaks God’s word – but it is false: twisted, misquoted; falsities inserted, etc.

A false prophet speaks true words of God at times, but when it suits him, he speaks words that are not from God, but implies, or says that they are. He is two-faced. He says what people want to hear. He is a “Janus” or Janus-faced.

Jesus described false prophets as “wolves in sheep’s clothing”. Revelation describes the false prophet as having 2 horns like a lamb. (See Rev. 13:11 above) The Mitre the pope wears can signify the “2 horns”.

Jesus tells us we will know them by their fruits. Some of them are listed below:

The words of the False Prophet belie his true identity:

Other public acts of blasphemy against God or the Saints include his

 

 

  • 2016 : “First, we have Francis accusing John the Baptist of “doubt, or lack of faith, in Matthew 11: Although John was great, strong, secure in his vocation, “he still had dark moments,” he had his doubts,” said Francis. In fact, John began to doubt in prison, even though he had baptized Jesus, “because he was a Saviour that was not as he had imagined him.” (http://www.onepeterfive.com/papal-eisegesis-time-st-john-baptists-doubt/

·       The Blessed Virgin Mary commits mortal sin at the foot of the cross, accusing God the Father of deception “Lies!

  • Bergoglio claims Judas was repentant and victimized.

Bergoglio earlier this week  (April 2016) delivered a sermon at Casa Santa Marta in which he called Judas Iscariot a poor, repentant man, victimized and driven to suicide by unmerciful lovers of the law”. The writer comments: “This stunning attempt to rehabilitate Judas Iscariot, the greatest, most wicked traitor in history and despairing self-murderer, is beyond unprecedented.  It reeks of supernatural evil.” See: (http://www.barnhardt.biz/2016/04/16/gloves-off-paragraph-303-god-wills-mortal-sin-and-bergoglios-sinister-affinity-for-judas-iscariot/  )

 

  • Only a false prophet would contradict the Catholic Church teaching on “hell”: On November 6, 2016, in a midday address after the Angelus in St. Peter’s Square, Pope Francis suggested that everyone goes to heaven. He said: “The ‘children of heaven and resurrection’ are not a privileged few, but they are all men and all women, because the salvation brought by Jesus is for everyone.”

In an interview published in the La Stampa on December 31, 2013, he said: “Never fear the final judgment, because Christ will always be at our side.”

Likewise, in Amoris Laetitia (297), Pope Francis wrote: No one can be condemned forever, because that is not the logic of the Gospel!” See: https://veritas-vincit-international.org/2017/02/11/pope-francis-everyone-goes-to-heaven/

  • A true pope would not make fun of any religious orders, let alone those who are attracting many vocations. or use the phrase “superstar” or “postmistress” in reference to the Blessed Virgin.

In referring to religious orders, he said that he worries because  “The Spirit does not follow the logic of human success.” He denounced them as “Pelagians,” who want a return to asceticism and penance, “soldiers who seem ready to do anything for the defense of faith and morality, and then some scandal emerges involving the founder [male or female].”

 

  • Proselytism is solemn nonsense. We need to get to know each other, listen to each other and improve our knowledge of the world around us.

A true Pope would commend to us Jesus’ words“Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15). Pope Paul VI affirmed in his letter On Evangelization in the Modern World: “We wish to confirm once more that the task of evangelizing all people constitutes the essential mission of the Church” (14). Evangelization is at the very heart of what it means to be followers of the Lord.

  • The false prophet said:I believe in God, not in a Catholic god”.

 

  • He says: “:We cannot insist only on issues related to abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods.” And also says: “the most urgent problem that the Church is facing is youth unemployment and the loneliness of the old. “

 

  • If the Christian is a restorationist, a legalist, if he wants everything clear and safe, then he will find nothing. Compare this with Pope Benedict XVI: “Having a clear faith, based on the creed of the church, is often labeled today as a fundamentalism. … Whereas relativism, which is letting oneself be tossed and ‘swept along by every wind of teaching,’ looks like the only attitude acceptable to today’s standards.”

See: http://www.holychoices.org/data/Pope-Frances-False-Prophet.html

 

 

  • For example, when the Bishop of Rome preached at the Domus Santae Martae in May 2013, he said in a homily:  “We must meet one another doing good. ‘But I don’t believe, Father, I am an atheist!’  But do good: we will meet one another there.”  By “there,” he meant heaven.  In other words, atheists can go to heaven by doing good works. This is clearly error. See: http://www.traditionalcatholicpriest.com/2016/10/14/why-pope-francis-is-a-false-prophet/

Is the Church still ‘One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic’?

A+M+D+G

  

(Please note that the  parts written in brown font  and the headings are my own additions. More examples and evidence can be seen if you follow the links in the text to the original articles.)

Is the Church still “ONE” under this pontificate?

The oneness or unity of the Church in her submission to Christ as head, in her doctrinal integrity, and in her confession of one faith has been obscured and undermined in various ways under Francis’ pontificate:

  • He has called for a “decentralized” Church, and allowed individual bishops’ groups to determine for their own “regional” churches what is moral and right. In this way, it is supposedly permissible for adulterers to receive Holy Communion in Germany while across the border in Poland it is gravely sinful.

(Ven. Archbishop Fulton Sheen in 1950 said “There will be a counterfeit church. Christ’s Church will be one. And the False Prophet will create the other. The false church will be worldly, ecumenical, and global. It will be a loose federation of churches…”)

 (Our Lady of Akita, 13h Oct. 1973) 

  • He has refused to answer Church leaders earnestly begging for clarity on points of contention.

The Dubia by the 4 Cardinals presented to Pope Francis in private  by Cardinals Burke, Brandmüller, Burke, Caffarra and Meisner for the Dubia they submitted to Pope Francis in September 201.6 When there was no answer, these Dubia were made public in December, 2016

  • He has allowed Catholic doctrine to be minimized in the name of religious “dialogue” with other Christian denominations with a history of hostility towards Catholic doctrine on marriage, the Eucharist, and the papacy. Under his leadership, the Vatican has even hailed Luther, the founder of Protestantism, as a “witness to the gospel.”

(See 1 Timothy4: 1-2: “ …in the last times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to spirits of error, and doctrines of devils, speaking lies in hypocrisy, and having their conscience seared.”)

Is the Church still “HOLY” under this pontificate?

The holiness and sacred reality of the Church as the bride of Christ has been obscured and undermined in various ways under Francis’ pontificate:

  • His writings have been used by those closest to him to promote evil practices such as adultery and fornication as legitimate moral choices. (And Sodomy ?)
  • His writings have also been used to defend the sacrilegious practice of giving Holy Communion to those living in objective grave sin (here, here, here, and here). Bishops and cardinals have defended this sacrilegious practice based on the Pope’s own arguments in Amoris Laetitia that emphasize “pastoral care” and “mercy” to the detriment of doctrine and truth.

“…Last year Francis said that cohabitating couples are in a “real marriage” and receive the grace of the Sacrament. “I’ve seen a lot of fidelity in these cohabitations, and I am sure that this is a real marriage, they have the grace of a real marriage because of their fidelity,” he said at that time.”

  • He has denounced “restorationist” orders bursting with young people and has destroyed one traditional order.

 ROME, February 9, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Pope Francis has stated that the rise of new religious institutes that attract numerous religious vocations “worries” him because they often promote “rigidity. Francis denounced new traditional religious orders as “Pelagians,” who want a return to asceticism and penance.

Also the dismantling of the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate (a thriving order, growing in numbers) because of an internal dispute over the use of the Traditional Latin Mass. This stands in opposition to the many religious orders riddled with major issues such as dissent, sexual abuse, rampant homosexuality for the last few decades and still remain comparatively untouched by Church authorities.

  • He has resisted the traditional Latin Mass and called the young people who love it “rigid.”
  • He has accused Christians of “cowardliness who zealously follow the Ten Commandments.
  • He has consistently used coarse and degrading language to criticize and vilify those with whom he disagrees (here, here, and here).
  • He has allowed St. Peter’s Basilica, a sacred Church building, to be desecrated by an occult light show projected on its facade. This occurred on 8th December, Feast of the Immaculate Conception, and was in celebration of his latest ‘encyclical’ ‘Laudate Si’ . New Age images abounded including pagan gods and goddesses.

Is the Church still “Catholic” under this pontificate?

The Catholicity or universal mission of the Church to ceaselessly toil for the salvation of souls has been obscured and undermined in various ways under Francis’ pontificate:

Is the Church still “Apostolic” under this pontificate?

The apostolicity of the Church where the deposit of faith is authentically handed down from the apostles through their successors the bishops and cardinals has been obscured and undermined in various ways under Francis’ pontificate:

Prophecies fulfilled – Apostolic Exhortations – Twisting the Truth:

A+M+D+G

Error and Truth – Fp’s Apostolic exhortations

 Twisting the Truth (prophecy)

“The division between the loyal followers, those who accept My Father’s Book, the Most Holy Bible, and those who want to change the Truth, is about to become wider. One half will not deviate from the Truth. The other half will twist the Truth. They will do this to suit their own political and personal motivations, which will be hidden behind a couched language. The Truth will soon be declared to be a lie and God will be accorded the blame.”  (B of T: November 21, 2012 )

In FP’s apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia

  • Footnote 351 (Amoris laetitia‘s) granted permission for unrepentant adulterers to commit sacrilege at Mass
  • He also conveniently failed to quote St. John Paul’s Familiaris consortio 84 which explicitly upholds Christ’s commandment forbidding Communion for purportedly remarried adulterers,
  • Amoris laetitia‘s Footnote 329 rips the Second Vatican Council’s Gaudium et spes 51 (concerning temporary abstinence from marital relations) completely out of context in order to argue that “doing it for the children” might mitigate the mortal sin of adultery.

In his previous apostolic exhortation Evangelium Gaudium no. 161,

  • FP claimed that Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyselfis the first and greatest commandment thereby putting human beings and our human relationships above God and our obligation to worship Him in spirit and in truth. Contrary to what Pope Francis claims, Jesus, as all faithful Catholics know, says the first and greatest commandment is “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy might, etc.,” while love of neighbor is the second greatest commandment.

 (This makes all the difference in the world — and the Pope’s reversal of these commandments, putting mere mortals ahead of God, seems to explain all his actions and emphases since his election to the See of St. Peter, beginning with his ultra vires and scandalous washing of the feet of women, pagans, and transsexuals on Holy Thursday.)

  • Evangelium Gaudium, falsifies Patristic doctrine in Footnote 51, which provides quotes from the Church Fathers in support of the statement in
  • Evangelium Gaudium 47, “The Eucharist, although it is the fullness of sacramental life, is not a prize for the perfect but a powerful medicine and nourishment for the weak.”

That sentence from EG no. 47, standing alone, is true.  But in light of subsequent actions and utterances of the Pope and numerous other bishops and cardinals, there is much more going on there …I think it now should be clear the Pope in EG no. 47 telegraphed his intention to impose upon the Church the approval of giving Communion not only to adulterers but to anyone who is impenitent or even those who lack the saving Catholic faith of Christ.  This is indicated by the way the teachings of the Church Fathers are treated in

  • Footnote 51 of Evangelium Gaudium.

According to francis, the great doctor St. Ambrose of Milan in his De Sacramentis (On the Mysteries) said:

“I must receive it always, so that it may always forgive my sins. If I sin continually, I must always have a remedy.”

Taken alone, this could sound like a scandalous encouragement to presumptuous or sacrilegious reception of Holy Communion, as if receiving the Sacrament of the Eucharist removes mortal sin without any need for recourse to the Sacrament of Penance (contrary to the infallible, permanently binding dogma of the Council of Trent).

Did St. Ambrose really say, “I must receive it always”?  Did he think it’s wrong to refrain from Communion at Mass, that reception of Communion when at Mass is obligatory?

No, he didn’t think that, nor did he say, “I must receive it always,” nor, “I must always have a remedy.”  Evangelium Gaudium Footnote 51 not only takes the great Milanese doctor’s words out of context, but it also mistranslates them.

 Here’s the passage in context, and correctly translated (emphasis added):

“Therefore as often as thou receivest—what saith the Apostle to thee?—as often as we receive, we show the Lord’s death; if we show his death, we show remission of sins. If, as often as blood is poured forth, it is poured for remission of sins, [then] I ought always to receive it, that my sins may always be forgiven me. I, who am always sinning, ought always to have a remedy.”
