In reading a fellow blogger’s postings this latest one,
“Heaven or Hell Catholic – Fr. Mark Goring, CC”
struck me as being so timely and imperative; very much in what I was thinking about last evening and immediately when I awoke this morning. So I didn’t hesitate and took this as a God Send to act upon it and began writing!
I was trying to use the reblog feature but it failed; so I went to this format which I hope serve’s God’s will very well. Amen.
So good of you to bring this up!
Hell is absolutely real and waiting eagerly for any of us who fail to follow Jesus Christ in His prescribed manner only! There will be no redoes or return trips for those who become the condemned; the Bible makes all of this perfectly clear and absolute!
I’m certain Fr. Goring is absolutely correct! There are also many Scriptures that bear this out how there will be those who will be condemned to everlasting punishment, but will proudly march into hell.
The “Big Lie” of our time he mentions here is exactly true! We would have to be in a coma to not have witnessed all of the lies and deception massively through MSM and Governments that just unfolded over the last year alone, to not realize we are in the “End Time” when there will be great deceptions and those that will say look here; all manner of distortions of truth and to take people’s attention away from the most important thing in all of our lives the Salvation only through Jesus Christ He being the Lamb of God and nothing will save us but him! So of course the Devil now in high pitch is working through countless minions all forms of misdirection even on this Word Press I see it daily!
2 Timothy 4:3-4 “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”
Read that passage closely. Paul is telling us in the last days “Christians” will refuse to hear the true doctrine. They will seek preachers who teach them doctrines that make them feel good about themselves (like prosperity doctrines). He calls these teachings fables.
The follow me and I’ll be your fan too! Or the I like everyone on here so just give me a like too! It’s all evil deception to get the lambs to stray farther and farther from the One and Only Path to Salvation. These games are trickery to get us to all believe we just pat each other on the back and say to ourselves from within our own deluded minds and unrequited hearts full of boasting, foolhardiness and pride that we are all going to be one happy forever family; that God saves us all from ourselves so we can live it up; because He is all love and won’t let any of us go. That is “absolutely false” like the good Fr. Goring is telling us, and so many are going to be in hell for following this sorcery.
Some well published authors on here professing to believe in Jesus Christ are part of the “HUGE LIE” and are actually working directly for Satan via the “Ways of the World;” playing off the fakery and lustful energy of material success, self-aggrandizement, fame and pride, passing that fever they carry in their core to others here online, so they too will be living the LIE! All I can say to any of you is I hope you wake up to the same things I have seen and will turn quickly on your knees today, now, to Jesus Christ; and beseech the Blessed Mother to please come to your aid as she did for her Son our Savior and be there to pray for us so we won’t slip into the abyss of oblivion and eternal damnation, complete separation from God and all that is good. Amen.
Think about these points of great contention which you and I know so many are guilty of.
It was the sin of pride that got Satan kicked out of Heaven!
Do you think that you are better than others or entitled to more than others because of how smart you are, how you look, what you own, how much you make, your achievements, etc. etc. etc.
Do you defend the Bible with love or do you just do it to win a debate
We must learn to take the focus off of ourselves and put it on the Lord, which will result in more fruits of humility truly taking us away from the precipice and condemnation.
God gives us the grace and the wisdom so we don’t fall into traps from Satan, but pride stops you from thinking clearly. You will get too stubborn to admit guilt, think lowly of yourself, to change direction, not get off the wrong path, etc. Satan was God’s top angel, but he became haughty because of his beauty. It was his pride that led to his destruction. Your pride is going to end up either humbling you if you wake up to what is happening to you; or it will pull you right down into Hell.
Consider now what these Scriptural verses say quite clearly!
Ezekiel 28:17 “Your heart was proud because of your beauty; you corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor. I cast you to the ground; I exposed you before kings, to feast their eyes on you.”
Proverbs 16:18 “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before stumbling.”
Proverbs 18:12 “Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, but humility goes before honor.”
Proverbs 29:23 “A person’s pride will humble him, but a humble spirit will gain honor.”
Luke 14:8-10 “When you are invited by someone to a wedding feast, do not take the place of honor, for someone more distinguished than you may have been invited by him, and he who invited you both will come and say to you, ‘Give your place to this man,’ and then in disgrace you proceed to occupy the last place. But when you are invited, go and recline at the last place, so that when the one who has invited you comes, he may say to you, ‘Friend, move up higher’; then you will have honor in the sight of all who are at the table with you.”
Philippians 2:3 “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.”
Pride causes you to be ungrateful and it causes you to forget God and all that He has done for you, which is absolutely the work of the Devil! In Genesis 32 I could see clearly by the words of Isaac in verse 10, “I am unworthy of all the lovingkindness and of all the faithfulness which You have shown to Your servant.” We are so unworthy. Don’t you forget it, none of us is worthy to be in the presence of God and all fall short of His glory!
Romans 3:10 “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one”
Luke 9:23-25 “Then Jesus said to all of them, “If anyone wants to come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me.”
24 “For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake, this is the one who will save it.”
25 “What does it profit a man to gain the whole world, yet lose or forfeit his very self?”
Deuteronomy 8:11-14 “Beware that you do not forget the Lord your God by not keeping His commandments and His ordinances and His statutes which I am commanding you today; otherwise, when you have eaten and are satisfied, and have built good houses and lived in them, and when your herds and your flocks multiply, and your silver and gold multiply, and all that you have multiplies, then your heart will become proud and you will forget the Lord your God who brought you out from the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.”
Romans 12:16 “Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.”
Psalm 131:1 “A song of ascents. Of David. My heart is not proud, LORD, my eyes are not haughty; I do not concern myself with great matters or things too wonderful for me.”
Galatians 6:3 “If anyone thinks they are something when they are not, they deceive themselves.”
We must remember when you indulge in the flattery of others you start to become prideful. This error is running rampant exponentially here and elsewhere in such a way it has never been able to before! Great massive simultaneous deception!
Proverbs 29:5 “The one who flatters his neighbor spreads a net for his steps.”
2 Corinthians 12:7 “So to keep me from becoming conceited because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations, a thorn was given me in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to harass me, to keep me from becoming conceited.”
The proud don’t know they are proud lost in a timeless delusion and they won’t listen because they are blinded by their own arrogance. Pride stops them from hearing the truth even if there is clear evidence all about. It causes them to twist Scripture to justify sin. The Pharisees were blinded by their pride!
Pride is the main reason that the Pharisees went to Hell. God is trying to tell us things, but the proud heart wouldn’t listen? Such a person doesn’t want to and won’t stand before God to hear Him say, “I’ve been trying to get through to you, but you just would not listen!” Pride is the reason why many will spend eternity in Hell. Many atheists deny the truth and they find every single way that they can to claim there is no God.
James 4:6 But He gives us more grace. This is why it says: “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”
Jeremiah 5:21 “Hear this, you foolish and senseless people, who have eyes but do not see, who have ears but do not hear.”
Romans 2:8 “But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger.”
Proverbs 16:5 “Everyone who is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD; Assuredly, he will not be unpunished.”
Proud are not saved. They are an abomination to Him. They join Satan in hell.
Proverbs 6:16-17 “There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood.”
1 Peter 5:5 “In the same way, you who are younger, submit yourselves to your elders. All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.”
1 Peter 3:8 “Finally, all of you, be like-minded and sympathetic, love as brothers, be tender-hearted and humble.”
Let go of what others are doing to you; so you are humble, turn it over to the Lord and stand before God with a contrite heart!
Proverbs 28:25 “He that is of a proud heart stirreth up strife: but he that putteth his trust in the LORD shall be made fat.”
Do you want to keep up with a certain image as others around you? A fool’s errand I must warn you! Forget all of that vanity!
1 John 2:15-17 “ Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world–the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life–comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.”
James 4:14-16 “Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” As it is, you boast in your arrogant schemes. All such boasting is evil.”
Pride does the opposite of what we were created for. We were created for the Lord. Everything that we have belongs to Him. Our heart is to beat for Him. Every breath we take is to be for Him.
1 Corinthians 10:31 “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”
As with some leaders right now I’ve seen it in them or their ways just as some of you have; say Biden or Pelosi how unwise and wicked they have become over the years, so they march to hell with their Prideful heads held High never turning it all over to the Lord and Trusting only in Him, they have Lied and lived a LIE! Not just to us and themselves; but to God and Jesus the only King of humanity!
If anyone truly wants the Truth and doesn’t want to offend God, that person will seek His Holy Spirit through Jesus Christ and pray, also for all the prayers of the saints and our Holy Mother of the Church Mary, because we need these blessings every minute of every day to avoid slipping too far into sin or in this case blinded pride and ego. All it takes is one big mistake and you are done for! Or conversely many multitudes of tiny mistakes that should have been stopped, but weren’t which add up to a complete failure; like the death of a thousand tiny cuts!
The Bible clearly demonstrates that many are going to hell, but, we don’t have to be one of them! The only medicine or cure for what ails us is Jesus Christ and His gift of Eternal Life; but we must deserve it and earn it. I see too many people serving self and ego and they are marching into hell, unless they turn completely from their wicked ways or the “Ways of the World!”
I’ve said for some years now how Bergoglio is a counterfeit Pope and not advocating as a true Vicar of Christ but is a renegade heretic! He a good buddy in a sense to Biden and Pelosi actually having promoted the election of Biden and backed him in word and deed, so is a NWO accomplice; who also has said there is no hell! Just as many in the new age thinkers club promote, saying we all die and go to God and everything is going to be just dandy! Why did Jesus God Himself go to all the bother then, and if He said all the things He did in Scriptures, then says later it was what a Big Ruse and I was kidding? People; you all I hope see that this deception is so rampant and deeply embedded into our lifestyle and culture; what the wonderful Saint John Paul II called the “Culture of Death” that we now are living in wasn’t just a cliché or his talking off the cuff! It really is just that, and its allowing the Devil to have a field day and pull so many away from Jesus; but, that too tells us this is the End Time. When it is so routine now for people to live in such a decadent phony facade and not care that they are marching away from God; and right into Satan’s arms!
I will now quote for you something that is a sheer example of how far things have slipped into this Culture of Death; most of a fine article which was from the actual person who spoke with Bergoglio and got these statements straight from the horses mouth; in this case the false prophet:
“In another interview with his longtime atheist friend, Eugenio Scalfari, Pope Francis claims that Hell does not exist and that condemned souls just “disappear.” This is a denial of the 2,000-year-old teaching of the Catholic Church about the reality of Hell and the eternal existence of the soul.
The interview between Scalfari and the Pope was published March 28, 2018 in La Repubblica. The relevant section on Hell was translated by the highly respected web log, Rorate Caeli.
The interview is headlined, “The Pope: It is an honor to be called revolutionary.” (Il Papa: “È un onore essere chiamato rivoluzionario.”)
Scalfari says to the Pope, “Your Holiness, in our previous meeting you told me that our species will disappear in a certain moment and that God, still out of his creative force, will create new species. You have never spoken to me about the souls who died in sin and will go to hell to suffer it for eternity. You have however spoken to me of good souls, admitted to the contemplation of God. But what about bad souls? Where are they punished?”
Pope Francis says, “They are not punished, those who repent obtain the forgiveness of God and enter the rank of souls who contemplate him, but those who do not repent and cannot therefore be forgiven disappear. There is no hell, there is the disappearance of sinful souls.”
The Catechism of the Catholic Church states: “The teaching of the Church affirms the existence of hell and its eternity. Immediately after death the souls of those who die in a state of mortal sin descend into hell, where they suffer the punishments of hell, ‘eternal fire.’ The chief punishment of hell is eternal separation from God, in whom alone man can possess the life and happiness for which he was created and for which he longs.” (1035)
The Catechism further states, “The affirmations of Sacred Scripture and the teachings of the Church on the subject of hell are a call to the responsibility incumbent upon man to make use of his freedom in view of his eternal destiny. They are at the same time an urgent call to conversion: ‘Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is easy, that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard, that leads to life, and those who find it are few.’ CNSNews.com By Michael W. Chapman
Be strong in your faith in Jesus and on bent knee turn your heart completely over to Him.
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
