Cardinal Burke’s Statement on «Traditionis Custodes»

Now an upright and devout Cardinal and Theologian stands in accordance with the “Teachings of Jesus Christ” carried forward by Apostle Peter in precise accordance with the direct instruction that was given to him by Jesus Christ Himself before and after our Lord’s crucifixion.

Bergoglio is a heretic and false prophet doing the bidding of Satan directly at the apex position in the Church Hierarchy who I now compare to the equally wicked Biden at the top seat of power and authority, in the US Government. There I’ve said it; what I see and I’m nobody, just a simple man who hates Deception with a Passion as I always have and will not cease in calling out the liars and deceivers in our midst who attempt to lead all of us to Perdition, down a false road and construct of the; Evil One!

I see it clear as day and Bergoglio thinks he can fool me? Is it that he sees the world mostly full of idiots and devils that will go along to get along?

“Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!” (Sir Walter Scott, 1808).

He not only has buried himself as far as God Almighty will be concerned in my humble opinion, but, he has no retreat now as I see it, and will march straight into hell with his evil selfish pride along with all of his cohorts, and many are bishops and other men of the cloth, who are willfully partnering with evil earthly powers and principalities, that reach into hell.

Our fine Cardinal Burke states; “devout faithful who have a deep appreciation and attachment to the encounter with Christ through the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite.” CP&S

Cardinal Burke in this quote I make here points to the eye of the storm as I understand this, and for me the Truth falls into place!

“Yes, there are individuals and even certain groups which espouse radical positions, even as is the case in other sectors of Church life, but they are, in no way, characteristic of the greater and ever increasing number of faithful who desire to worship God according to the UA. The Sacred Liturgy is not a matter of so-called “Church politics” but the fullest and most perfect encounter with Christ for us in this world. The faithful, in question, among whom are numerous young adults and young married couples with children; encounter Christ, through the UA, Who draws them ever closer to Himself through the reform of their lives and cooperation with the divine grace which flows from His glorious pierced Heart into their hearts. They have no need to make a judgment regarding those who worship God according to the Usus Recentior (the More Recent Usage, what Pope Benedict XVI called the Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite) [UR], first promulgated by Pope Saint Paul VI.”

And again I quote; “A schismatic spirit or actual schism are always gravely evil, but there is nothing about the UA which fosters schism. For those of us who knew the UA in the past, like myself, it is a question of an act of worship marked by a centuries-old goodness, truth and beauty. I knew its attraction from my childhood and indeed became very attached to it.”

“For those who have come to the UA for the first time, its rich beauty, especially as it manifests the action of Christ renewing sacramentally His Sacrifice on Calvary through the priest who acts in His person, has drawn them closer to Christ. I know many faithful for whom the experience of Divine “Worship according to the UA has strongly inspired their conversion to the Faith or their seeking Full Communion with the Catholic Church. Also, numerous priests who have returned to the celebration of the UA or who have learned it for the first time have told me how deeply it has enriched their priestly spirituality. This is not to mention the saints all along the Christian centuries for whom the UA nourished an heroic practice of the virtues. Some have given their lives to defend the offering of this very form of divine worship.”

Cardinal Burke’s Statement on «Traditionis Custodes»

Posted on July 23, 2021 by Catholicism Pure & Simple

Precisely in my opinion as I’ve previously stated from actual personal experience and the communion with the Holy Spirit of God Almighty during mass.

Many people are too proud and arrogant; so they just go their own way down and down to a dead end! Just some stuff to think about! But important I say; maybe the most important of all!

Some of my previous thoughts on this subject.

“Reverence, humility and awe.” This one line pinpoints the massive loss within the Church that’s taken place; in this very well written explanation of what has happened to the Holy Catholic Mass since the Second Vatican Council concluded setting in motion the ever so methodical decline of the Catholic Church. It’s taken roughly a half century to hollow out this body leaving a dry husk or nearly empty shell of what once was the true sanctuary and a Holy Place for the faithful to be in the presence of the mystical and Godliness of the Almighty through Jesus Christ. I think of it as a kind of experience that nothing compares to and one which gives those who believe a true sense of being visited and in the Holy Spiritual presence of God; perhaps a sense of what it was like for Moses and other Holy men of God, what the prophets must have felt when God spoke to them directly. But this mystical aspect of the Church is the religious experience we strive for when we attend Mass if genuinely sincere in our humility and love of God.

When you dilute or water down anything you continue to move away from the original; be it a substance, object or a Church; and this dilution process further separates you from the genuine or the original article which in this case is God the Father through Jesus Christ. To me it’s simple as to what is happening and why. Who or what would benefit the most from this distortion and separation of the Truth; but obviously the Devil.

I just read today that the entire Georgetown University basketball team took a knee before their game against Colorado in the 2021 NCAA Tournament Saturday playoff. This frenzied March madness or rebellion is in all walks of life now, disturbing and even attacking all that is “tried and tested” out of sheer defiance in many cases, just to rebel for the sake of saying “it’s my right!” Such an arrogant people this modern in your face generation has become with so little to no respect for the great things and unsung heroes of the past or all those that made possible what freedoms and good we take for granted! The Hoyas or Georgetown team went on to lose the playoff game and won’t be advancing!  I think of this as an example of defiance that throws all caution and sensibility or even common respect for those who suffered and died so we might live, is morphing into this prideful disobedience toward all that is good about America or even life itself, but, more importantly toward God Almighty!

What these people need is a major taste of reality, a mountainous dose to shock them into wiping that arrogant self-serving rotten attitude out of their minds and hearts; all of which is part of a game they play, let alone basketball. They don’t realize they are playing with fire metaphorically speaking; but nonetheless it will consume them!

This causes me to recall what I said in response to another fine article in which Kathleen (CP&S) made some very heartfelt comments about this very subject which I should share again here, that inspired this long commentary of mine. “I’m so thankful you came along with this article and presented it as you have because in your closing statement in the article as you state clearly, “It is so sad the post Vatican Two destroyers did away with it… although apparently it was never formally abrogated.” CP&S

This is so true how much has been altered in the Church to divert and gradually lead astray the faithful incrementally over time; this is the great apostasy and falling away from the faith that was prophesied would happen before the End Time.

And indeed with so many of the still devout outstanding members of the clergy like Archbishop Vigano, Bishop Schneider and Father Z being a few of these truly devoted to the mission of the Church in following and adhering to all of the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ, we see how it is sad how Vatican Two did set in motion the plan of destruction that has taken root thoroughly throughout the Church and society; twisting and perverting many of the original teachings that Jesus left us with to the point where we now have a deceptive man and heretic Bergoglio, promoting falsehoods and even blaspheming God Almighty with his allowing sacrilegious infiltration’s into the very heart and sanctity of Church at the Vatican as he is leading so many of the clergy down a path of destruction!

I recently wrote these following statements about the Latin Mass which again this is worthy of considering here.

“In His Presence”

Yes this does indeed encapsulate the fact of the true Catholic faith still alive and well with the ever present heartbeat that grows stronger each passing day, and I quote; “The new pulse beating within the Church: the strong and joyful beat of traditional Catholicism. Instead of considering it his enemy, he should recognize it as the fulfillment of what he’s been striving for all along.” CP&S

Something I wrote recently in response to your article here on CP&S regarding what Archbishop Arthur Roche had to say about his matter in his “the world has changed,” so it’s time to move-on attitude, which was another putdown, or more like saying “out with the old and in with the new” mantra; I see how what I said dovetails perfectly here today!

I know that my soul has been very moved and inspired when I partake in the Full Latin Mass; as I know from experience Jesus is there and I feel His Holy Spirit coming down from heaven with the Father to join us in the Mass, blessing those who are participating in this most Divine inspired true way of expressing our devotional love for our Lord Savior Jesus and the Father in heaven! I’ve had many tears in this Traditional Mass at times and they are always tears of sweet joy that are coming to me from the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, because the Lord is really touching my soul at that time most intimately and acknowledging His presence and love for me, as in no other setting can this occur to this degree; which nothing on earth can compare to this realization that my God is with me and will not abandon those who believe/worship Him in this way! Amen.

Those are my absolutely certain truthful observations and deepest feelings in this regard! And I should share what else I had to say just prior to what you read here to make it clear how certain I am about this. And so far as his argument that the world had changed I totally disagree because it’s the people that have changed, and, God and Jesus are the same always so our communing with them in Holy Mass remains static, or plainly our souls are just that which we truly are; not our exteriors of body/flesh or daily life on earth; and therefore that is what we want to awaken to the “mystical power of the Holy Spirit” the focusing of our inner souls to the “mystical presence of God” and be totally receptive to Jesus Christ and through Him the Father to grow our deep heart felt faith not alter appearances or procedures as this New Age approach is planning to do! In this case especially in life, less is more; that which is not contrived or noisy but simple and peaceful coming from our core is all we need to bring to the ceremonial alter of the Mass!

It is very sad to me how all of these big time sports heroes or government leaders and other highly visible public figures don’t see or feel any of this I speak about here today; if they did they surely wouldn’t have the crass and aloof attitudes they do and would quickly have a change of heart.

Look folks, I know I sort of go off my rocker in this to me quite dire situation in the Church and in our everyday lives with how basically all tradition along with “tried and tested Truths” have been decimated by radical and totally destructive thinking or the wishes of the wicked who are real and now in our governments and Churches attempting to overthrow and destroy it all in the same way of thinking that Karl Marx employed who was an admitted cohort of Satan without any doubt, and I just wrote about him again regarding this current topsy-turvy, insane world we are now part of!

Sure the Cardinal speaks with a tempered and refined tongue as he must but to me the reason we are in this fix as a human race is because as the adage goes “Talk is Cheap;” but I speak with a temper or strong passion without the sugar coating at times because, I’m a simple passionate and God fearing man, who is “sick and tired” of all the lies or failure of those we appoint to govern and guide the people, even a Pope; but instead they sell-out and fill up their banks with all the cash they can grab, people just passing the buck! “Know them by their fruits” and look what Biden produced for a son, and that tells you where my head is at! His son is a vile, corrupted, no good lowlife and these are the people the Media and even Bergoglio props up? Can you believe the audacity of this creature so called Pope, who gave countless accolades to Biden and his family while ignoring the good in Donald J. Trump and his beautiful family of offspring; not crooks and bums like the Biden family tree; as if they had the bubonic plague and were the most vile creatures on the planet!

Tell me I’m wrong that a so called Pope ignored my letter to him directly about a Church and Political matter in my community that almost killed me, and likewise he ignored a President of the US like he wasn’t even in existence as he went along with the MSM, false, total lying narrative; this political fraud Pope that the Church Hierarchy should have booted out way back during his first signs of transgression from the Holy Sanctity of the Church order; with his bringing ancient sacrificial pagan idolatry artifacts still dripping with human blood of the sacrificed onto the Holy Alter of Jesus Christ in the Vatican!  Do they think he is God and infallible so they must keep him around, and put up with his disruptive edicts and actions! SACRILEGIOUS AND A HERETICAL ABOMINATION!

I think he is a Marxist at heart!

Canada Shows What Marxists Could Do To America

God bless all of you! And may you be quite certain too what the Traditional Catholicism with its Latin Mass can provide for you in your faith; if you too haven’t already discovered this truth! Amen.

Dear sister and friend in Christ Ali…so wonderful and perfect a message of hope and encouragement which to me obviously speaks to the truth of what we ultimately see going on in all of this at times chaotic or tumultuous world gone awry, with so much bad trying to overwhelm the good! But we know the light always overcomes the darkness and that is from the beginning, when God Himself said; “let there be light!”

Genesis 1
“1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
2Now the earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.
3And God said, “Let there be light,”a and there was light. 4And God saw that the light was good, and He separated the light from the darkness. 5God called the light “day,” and the darkness He called “night.”

And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.”

With that I can see the light, and know this “Truth by His omnipotence!”

“What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?” Romans 8:31

The author of the universe speaks directly to us in all things; and what he commands is; as “He is the great “I Am!”

Indeed Ali who do we and should we have confidence in; even in our darkest hour no matter what the “Ways of the World” are predicating or even forcing upon us! With genuine faith in God Almighty we could be as destitute as Dismas was on his cross next to Jesus Christ; when Jesus told him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise” (Luke 23:32-43).

c35286572716c801ae5d92bdf430166a--paradise-jesus-christ

Yes we all carry our own cross if we follow Him, as children of the Light and Faith in Him our beloved Savior Jesus Christ! And for doing this our reward and favor by His shed blood will be the greatest of all possible gifts, to be with Him eternally in the presence and peace of our heavenly Father and Maker, God Almighty!

“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

A well-deserved note here of congratulations to you Ali, for completing your work in Bible studies for our Lord! I know He is so pleased and happy for you as His child Ali; who sees and follows the Light! Amen.

Brother in Christ Jesus,

VIDEO Denzel Washington: Prayer and the Holy Spirit Have Protected Me

I like this blog posting a whole lot! I have many of Denzel’s films and always enjoyed watching him work in them not only because I met him on a film set, a great job experience, but even aside from his smooth skill and capability to act on cue so authentically which I admire, for me it is moreover; for his real genuine Christian faith!

He did grow up on some mean streets and as he put it many guys he was around during that period of his life went down the tubes with drug addiction and crime many did hard time! He was blessed to have two wonderful parents and got grounded in life early with a great foundation his Dad being a Minister and his Mom being a great Mother and having her own salon being a very ambitious person herself, I can see gave him much to appreciate and be proud of but it was Jesus that gave him his greatest strength of moral integrity and purpose. I can personally identify with him saying how God protected him or how prayers made the difference; because that has been my experience for sure, knowing I was going to die at least a few times if not for some act of God or Divine Intervention! And not just my prayers helped, I know the prayers of others especially, in my case my Mother, Father and Grandmother made a world of difference in my being given graces when really needed! My Dad too was always a devout man of God, bringing Him into conversations we had when I was growing up; that helped me immensely!

I actually wrote what you just read to this point before I finished reading this article completely, because I got inspired and busy writing quickly what I was thinking and feeling so spontaneously; and then I just came upon what Denzel said here, about what his Mom told him, “Boy, you don’t know how many people have been praying for you.” There you go; this is witness of God speaking to us right now! He is saying right now, “you sure can believe in the power of prayer,” as my Mother always said, “it’s the most powerful weapon there is to guide and protect us!”

It all came together for Denzel going to a private military academy that his Mom placed him in after his parents split up, but, Denzel said that joining the Boys Club in Mount Vernon is where the biggest change or epiphany occurred in his life; when a coach there told him and the other boys “you can be something, it’s really up to you!” Denzel got a confidence from that one comment and started believing, “hey yea I can be something or someone, I can be what I want to be.” He is a shining example of how the youth in America and beyond don’t have to be wasted or lost to the inner city ruckus or turmoil; if they get some insight and good input from Christian minded adults, who project that good to them in those formative years, just the way that coach did!  Denzel was given a strong message of Hope, all of it from God, but, coming through some really good people, I believe it ignited in him so positively, that he made up his mind to “work hard and make himself something that Jesus would be proud of,” and; I’m sure He is.
God bless y’all.

During the discussion, Washington shared examples of the grace God has shown him over the years, especially through his family andthe Holy Spirit.

“It was a supernatural, if not once in a lifetime experience…that I couldn’t completely understand at the time,” said Washington, describing a moment in the early 80s when he was filled with the Holy Ghost. The actor, who is known for movies such asMalcolm X,Glory, andTraining Day, had decided to visit the West Angeles Church of God in Christ (COGIC) in Los Angeles. When the church gave an altar call, he thought, “This time, I’m just going to go…

God May Give You The Victory, But You May Still Have To Go Through The Battle

Does the team with the…

This is an excellent description of how wrong it can be to not live up to our obligations and responsibilities for the Lord! I want to add my thoughts here that I had written earlier today for another reblog; which hits the nail right on the head of what this article says as I see it.

All Christians that say they are against these things; such as abortion, same sex marriage, transsexuality and many other radical departures from human behaviors or practices that were tried and tested through the millennia and even more importantly forbidden in the Holy Scriptures; but want to remain placid and leave it all up to the Almighty, are the true “Lukewarm” wishy-washy that God tells us in Holy Scriptures, is what he will spit out! Many of them would rather play games and sit around letting the world go to hell in a hand basket than commit and be ready to fight for Jesus Christ as the martyrs and saints did or still do!

They don’t want to do the work required to truly carry their own cross here, but, like the idea of letting others do all the heavy lifting, and that is why this world is in the worst state it has ever been; with a modern generation over many decades now, that have been more interested in self-aggrandizement, materialism and pleasure seeking; than anything else. So materialistic and vain; not seeing the forest for the trees, or even caring as they do their “own thing” and “get all they can while they can!” Don’t we see this in our leaders and those with the most power and influence; in spades? They serve the beast this materialistic corrupted system and Satan without a doubt; and then the citizenry are falling into alignment with that same way of thinking sucking up whatever is dished out to them just as we have seen with the false pandemic! No ancient time or period even comes close in comparison to the evil which is exponentially increasing daily! Many prefer to gloss things over with delusional indifference or even self-righteousness and think they have done right; when they are so wrong!

Revelation 3:16 “15 I know your deeds; you are neither cold nor hot. How I wish you were one or the other! 16So because you are lukewarm— neither hot nor cold— I am about to vomit you out of My mouth! 17You say, ‘I am rich; I have grown wealthy and need nothing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked.…”

2 Timothy 4:3 “For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions”

I’ve witnessed it time and again how so many on this internet sitting and just coasting along talking all day about nothing that really proves their willingness to fight for the good and what is right; truly righteous individuals are extremely hard to find on this social media! They often either play games seeking some kind of attention or distraction and want adulation as in followers; sometimes they are forming their little clubs where they converse about things; getting them nowhere and more importantly doing “nothing” about the horrors that riddle our societies.

1 John 3:8-10 “Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil. No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God’s seed abides in him, and he cannot keep on sinning because he has been born of God. By this it is evident who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is the one who does not love his brother.”

Not taking a stand in defense of the innocent and against all the calamities of our corrupted system all around us, Ways of the World, is not righteous or loving one’s brothers and sisters! It’s become devil may care!

The basic truth is very concise and clear and there is no excuse to not see it and live it! The prophecies tell us in the Book of Truth what will come and how it will unfold; so to say we are not aware and so therefore must leave it all up to the Lord, sort of letting the chips fall where they may, because we have no say in it; is a LIE! Discerning power is available through the Holy Ghost the Comforter, who will reveal all things needed to those who truly are righteous and worthy in the eyes of our Savior! These fools who say I just mind my business and do my quiet act in my own little corner or way; are not carrying any cross, they are phony and cowards hiding behind fools.

“But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.” 1 Peter 1:14-16

Many people are being lulled into this captive mode of thinking, how if we just go along to get along it will all work out fine and dandy! Not going to happen, this world is falling away quickly and will End. So, “when the going gets tough the tough get going” not sitting like old fools in a sewing circle and hoping for the best! It actually takes work, pain and suffering to get the job done, as well as fight when it is required! If people back during the “Great Generation” mostly thought as many people do today, the tyrants and murderers would have taken over the world many years ago! And, now they have the best chance in all of time to do so, as we can rest assured this is Communist China’s absolute goal; with people like Biden and Canada’s Trudeau appeasing the evil Dragon; capitulating, to allow the slow takeover of free nations, while many depots within our nations have been bought off and sold their souls not only to the beast system; but to Satan! The CCP rules with an iron inhuman fist and are true atheists not caring one iota about “God or His children” only “lust for power and complete control” is what they care about!

I believe that sister Lisa explains quite well in the following!
This from “What is “Righteous Anger”?”
“How can I know whether I’m feeling that or just being a hothead?”
Lisa Harper (christianitytoday)

“I grew up believing anger was a “bad” emotion. So I’ve needed several years of Christian counseling even to admit I get angry, much less to learn I can express those feelings righteously! Thankfully, God’s Word sets clear parameters for getting peeved.

What does God say about this? The bad news for hotheads is that Scripture contains many more verses warning believers against blowing their cool than verses advocating such behavior. The writer of Proverbs connects anger with foolishness: “Fools quickly show that they are upset, but the wise ignore insults” (Proverbs 12:16, NCV). And the apostle Paul recommends letting our heavenly Father fight our battles: “My friends, do not try to punish others when they wrong you, but wait for God to punish them with his anger. It is written: ‘I will punish those who do wrong; I will repay them,’ says the Lord” (Romans 12:19, NCV).

Sometimes, however, God allows his people to fuss and remain faithful. Such is the case when King David furrows his brow and huffs:
“God, I wish you would kill the wicked!
Get away from me, you murderers!
They say evil things about you.
Your enemies use your name thoughtlessly.
Lord, I hate those who hate you;
I hate those who rise up against you.
I feel only hate for them;
they are my enemies” (Psalm 139:19–22, NCV).

Or when Nehemiah gets upset after learning about the wealthy Israelites’ exploitation of the poor: “Then I was very angry when I had heard … these words” (Nehemiah 5:6, NASB).

What’s noteworthy in these situations is that David called down curses on sworn enemies of God, and Nehemiah directed his irritation at the “haves” repressing the “have-nots.” Both men were angry because of ungodly people or activities.

And Jesus expressed anger—at the Pharisees who exhibited such hard hearts, and at the crass commercialism that sullied the temple (; )—to convey extreme displeasure over sin. Those reasons are the key to righteous anger.

How does this affect me? As Christ-followers, we’re totally appropriate getting upset over sin, too. Evils such as abuse, racism, pornography, and child sex trafficking should incense us.

But no matter how reprehensible the people or activities we’re condemning, we still aren’t justified to sin in our responses: “When you are angry, do not sin, and be sure to stop being angry before the end of the day” (Ephesians 4:26, NCV). Those of us with confrontational personalities might want to ask ourselves the question, Is my motive to be right or to be righteous? before ripping into the offending parties.

Such considerations also help us be pokey in getting peeved: “Let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God” (James 1:19–20, ESV). Instead of replying immediately, simply counting to ten before reacting usually leads to much better results in a contentious situation.

Then after we take offense, we should take redemptive action. Christians must get involved with organizations working to free children from slavery and volunteer at shelters working to protect battered women. We must lead the charge against hatred and oppression and cruelty!

“Ultimately, if our outrage results in restoring people into loving, healing relationships with Jesus, it’s righteous anger.”

Lisa Harper has a Masters in Theology with an emphasis in biblical studies from Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis. She’s a sought-after speaker and has written several books, including Holding Out for a Hero: A New Spin on Hebrews (Tyndale) and What the Bible Is All About for Women: A Book of Devotions (Regal). Visit her at http://www.lisaharper.net.

Waking people up from their distractions or even apathy is my goal in this world; as I can speak and write what I must; to do so! Because you and I know that what is going on in this world today is exponentially far worse than all those sins and wrongs that were committed by the Pharisees that Jesus actually reprimanded and condemned! What do we think would be His reaction if here now to deal directly with this horror! It’s certainly coming and will be the End!

God bless and keep in constant communion with our Lord Jesus Christ and heavenly Father through the Holy Ghost. Amen.

http://scottroberts.org/god-may-give-you-the-victory-but-you-still-have-to-go-through-the-battle/

I often wonder, when watching sports, what happens when both teams pray to God for victory. Does the team with the most faith or those that are closest to God with the least amount of sin in their life have their prayer answered? It’s also interesting to hear when someone is interviewed after a sports win that they give credit to God, however do they recognize God as well when they lose?

God gives us strength and abilities; in fact the very breath we breathe is a gift from God. God is sovereign, omnipresent, and omnipotent, however He is not omnicausal, meaning there is a measure of free will at play. Christian denominations like to debate over the level…

God bless this fine lady Star Parker! She is forthright and standing up for Jesus Chris first of all and then speaks the truth just like Dr. Ben Carson is doing being citizens of color that see the truth so well and actually cares enough to call out the enemies of our country and humanity! There is actually more slavery in the world now than there has even been; along with the fact that Communism is on the rise and move to subdue the world, and if that happens most people will be enslaved! I won’t need to say much else than what I just said on another reblog which was presented so well that it should be repeated as much as possible! What follows is what I stated there with links to additional articles related to the same matter!

“Carson aid children should be taught that slavery was not unique to America

“Critical race theory, the 1619 Project, what is that really about?” Carson asked.
“It’s about dividing people.”
“It’s about creating the kind of division and strife that allows control.”
“We’ve all heard the phrase, ‘divide and conquer.’ That’s what it’s about,” he said.
He added that children should be taught that slavery was not unique to America and noted the nation fought a civil war to end it.”

Isaiah 5:20-24
“20Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who turn darkness to light
and light to darkness,
who replace bitter with sweet
and sweet with bitter.
21Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
and clever in their own sight.
22Woe to those who are heroes in drinking wine
and champions in mixing beer,
23who acquit the guilty for a bribe
and deprive the innocent of justice.”

God bless Ben Carson and he is saying it like it is for sure!

I’ve grown tired and even angry which I deflect but nonetheless the left and loonies had had a field day with our Free Constitutional Republic making it a joke with all of the infiltration and contamination of most things held sacred both in Holy Scriptures and the US Constitution! The Devil is getting his due, Big Time! And too many people are just letting it happen being too caught in self-aggrandizement or of manner of foolishness!

I’ve watched Dr. Carson explain some very important matters over the years and he is quite the gentleman but also not afraid to take an unpopular very challenged position these days where the Democrat corrupt party and all of the leftists are put on pedestals for even doing criminal acts AKA burning cities down last summer while the Democrat officials cheered them on, but, no charges or consequences! The January 6th rally protest of a fraudulent election gets peaceful protesters put immediately in prison!

And so this is where we are today.
Isaiah 5:20-24
“20Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who turn darkness to light
and light to darkness,
who replace bitter with sweet
and sweet with bitter.
21Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
and clever in their own sight.
22Woe to those who are heroes in drinking wine
and champions in mixing beer,
23who acquit the guilty for a bribe
and deprive the innocent of justice.”

I would say is certainly time to pray like we never have before but also a time to be counted and willing to stand up to all evil that is seeking to smother us all and drag down into hell.
We are right where the rubber meets the road so I figure we can’t expect a painless ride! Many are delusional if they think things will just go back to OK! Communist China with its evil totally Atheist Brutal Regime is looking to pounce at the first opportunity and Biden would be more than happy to let them lead America down that road to Perdition!
Here are a few very over the top leftist perpetrators spewing vitriol in these articles.
This is the world going to hell in a hand basket while most people sit around with their thumbs up their butts; not looking good folks, just not enough human beings that care enough or are doing enough to stop the evil!
God bless you all.
Brother in Christ Jesus,

Since the new wave of race consciousness that has been sweeping our country, precipitated by the graphic video of the killing of George Floyd by police officer Derek Chauvin, something very strange has happened.

Somehow, what is perceived as a problem has become widely understood to be the solution. And it is endangering our country.

Black Lives Matter supports the same anti-freedom agenda in America as it does in Cuba. Pictured: Police officers stand guard during a June 24 protest after the arrest of Ricky and Travis Price in Rock Hill, South Carolina. (Photo: Peter Zay/Anadolu Agency/Getty Images)

If there remain citizens in America who, because of race or any other reason, are deprived of the benefits and protections of a free society, we should work to bring those benefits of freedom to them.

The answer is not to abandon the principles that make us a…

Zero Lift-Off    Only The Beginning

July 22, 2021

“It is not the task of Christianity to provide easy answers for every question, but to progressively make us aware of mystery. God is not so much the object of our knowledge as He is the cause of our awe,” as Albert Rossi says. Rossi also makes the point, which I’ve come to rely on, that we need to learn to live with clarity, uncertainty, ambiguity. One could even say it’s a sign of mental health: the ability to go forward without seeing fully; the ability to let things be as they are, without despairing or hyperventilating; the ability to rest content with knowing what is essential. Rossi puts it in three statements: “I know that I don’t know. I know that Christ knows. I trust Him.” CP&S (Dr Peter Kwasniewski)

We’re to seek a personal relationship with Jesus Christ our Savior who was God incarnate as a Man on Earth in the Flesh, the mystery of the Holy Trinity to follow! To say we should “just look in awe at what God is”and not seek Truth in a world that is becoming more chaotic by the day, when it is more vital than ever to question and want to know “what God is in the personage of Christ” by “discerning” through the Holy Ghost; is like the lazy person saying I’ll find something else to do while the roof on his house is caving in during a giant snow storm, because he can’t see what’s actually going on in the atmosphere above his home!

This man talks about being so concerned about losing his mind which he probably has already done to talk this way. Any of us should want to be like the prophets and seek enlightenment while facing the “unclarity, uncertainty, ambiguity” not accepting but rejecting it and only then we can be determined to overcome those handicaps to rise above them; not wallow in the mire that is building up all around us! That is what got us here to this juncture where the leftist loonies have incorporated every conceivable sinful perversion into our society to where they now say transvestite men in dresses and high heels have the right to use the same bathroom as little girls and adult women; as well as having Story Time Hour in public school systems where these perverts sit with children who have very impressionable minds and basically poison those innocent minds! You people that allow this and are not becoming outraged or not fighting back in your own communities are actually as bad or worse than the liberal radicals who at least admit what they are not donning disguises; that have infiltrated everything previously held as sacred or good, spreading sin to such a level that the bulk of societies are now aiding & abetting such evil crimes against humanity and God’s commandments! Supposed going along to get along!

What I wrote today in another reblog dovetails and applies perfectly to all this anemic rhetoric being said here!

“In abortion, Satan achieves the greatest injury to God: he offends Him as Creator, making the mother the murderer of her own child; he offends Him as Lord, usurping the right of life and death over innocent creatures and claiming the right to violate the Fifth Commandment with impunity; he offends Him as Redeemer, nullifying the fruits of Christ’s Passion for creatures killed without the grace of Baptism; he offends Him as Father, while also vilifying the Sacred Maternity of the Most Holy Virgin.” Posted on July 22, 2021 by Catholicism Pure & Simple

This excerpt to me is clear and concise Truth! It angers me! The father of all lies has manipulated the human family from day one and now in this high tech scientific and even highfalutin modern lifestyle, human beings have subjugated themselves to something lower than the most primitive beasts on the planet! This is the epitome of human beings serving “the beast” which is this concocted and precisely orchestrated system, that multitudes accept and adhere to; not only the poor innocent young female who has been victimized not only by carnal sin from Satan, but, by many of her fellow human beings who are serving the beast system and spreading its foul debauchery straight from hell.

All Catholics that say they are against these things, but want to remain placid and leave it all up to the Almighty, are the true “Lukewarm” wishy-washy that God tells us in Holy Scriptures, is what he will spit out! Many of them would rather play games and sit around letting the world go to hell in a hand basket than commit and be ready to fight for Jesus Christ as the martyrs and saints did or still do! They don’t want to do the work required to truly carry their own cross here, but, like the idea of letting others do all the heavy lifting, and that is why this world is in the worst state it has ever been; with a modern generation over many decades now that have been more interested in self-aggrandizement, materialism and pleasure seeking; than anything else. So materialistic and vain; not seeing the forest for the trees, or even caring as they do their “own thing” and “get all they can while they can!” Don’t we see this in our leaders and those with the most power and influence; in spades? They serve the beast this materialistic corrupted system and Satan without a doubt; and then the citizenry are falling into alignment with that same way of thinking sucking up whatever is dished out to them just as we have seen with the false pandemic! No ancient time or period even comes close in comparison to the evil which is exponentially increasing daily! Many prefer to gloss things over with delusional indifference or even self-righteousness and think they have done right; when they are so wrong!

Revelation 3:16 “15 I know your deeds; you are neither cold nor hot. How I wish you were one or the other! 16So because you are lukewarm— neither hot nor cold— I am about to vomit you out of My mouth! 17You say, ‘I am rich; I have grown wealthy and need nothing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked.…”

2 Timothy 4:3 “For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions”

I’ve witnessed it time and again how so many on this internet sitting and just coasting along talking all day about nothing that really proves their willingness to fight for the good and what is right; truly righteous individuals are extremely hard to find on this social media! They often either play games seeking some kind of attention or distraction and want adulation as in followers; sometimes they are forming their little clubs where they converse about things; getting them nowhere and more importantly doing “nothing” about the horrors that riddle our societies.

1 John 3:8-10 “Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil. No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God’s seed abides in him, and he cannot keep on sinning because he has been born of God. By this it is evident who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is the one who does not love his brother.”

Not taking a stand in defense of the innocent and against all the calamities of our corrupted system all around us, Ways of the World, is not righteous or loving one’s brothers and sisters! It’s become devil may care!

The basic truth is very concise and clear and there is no excuse to not see it and live it! The prophecies tell us in the Book of Truth what will come and how it will unfold; so to say we are not aware and so therefore must leave it all up to the Lord, sort of letting the chips fall where they may, because we have no say in it; is a LIE! Discerning power is available through the Holy Ghost the Comforter, who will reveal all things needed to those who truly are righteous and worthy in the eyes of our Savior! These fools who say I just mind my business and do my quiet act in my own little corner or way; are not carrying any cross, they are phony and cowards hiding behind fools.

“But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.” 1 Peter 1:14-16

Archbishop Viganò is a warrior for Jesus Christ standing alone many times speaking against the “tide of lies and deception” that’s been going on for many decades in front of our eyes!

We are clearly in End Time and the horrors to come will overwhelm those that are Lukewarm as it should be, for their not being willing to take a final stand for Christ! The Church is in complete disarray and the Devil is getting his due with a fraud Vicar of Christ Bergoglio, who is bringing the Church down to the level of the Beast NWO System and Satan; he advocates and paves the way for the antichrist; and any Christians that won’t reject that with all of their might and heart speaking out or otherwise, along with other capabilities; are doomed with him! All are being tested like no other time in history other than; when Christ was crucified!

Many people are being lulled into this captive mode of thinking, how if we just go along to get along it will all work out fine and dandy! Not going to happen, this world is falling away quickly and will End. So, “when the going gets tough the tough get going” not sitting like old fools in a sewing circle and hoping for the best! It actually takes work, pain and suffering to get the job done, as well as fight when it is required! If people back during the “Great Generation” mostly thought as many people do today, the tyrants and murderers would have taken over the world many years ago! And, now they have the best chance in all of time to do so, as we can rest assured this is Communist China’s absolute goal; with people like Biden and Trudeau appeasing the evil Dragon, to allow the slow takeover of free nations, while many depots within our nations have been bought off and sold their souls not only to the beast system; but to Satan! The CCP rules with an iron inhuman fist and are true atheists not caring one iota about “God or His children” only “lust for power and complete control” is what they care about!

I believe that sister Lisa explains quite well in the following!
This from “What is “Righteous Anger”?”
“How can I know whether I’m feeling that or just being a hothead?”
Lisa Harper (christianitytoday)

I grew up believing anger was a “bad” emotion. So I’ve needed several years of Christian counseling even to admit I get angry, much less to learn I can express those feelings righteously! Thankfully, God’s Word sets clear parameters for getting peeved.

What does God say about this? The bad news for hotheads is that Scripture contains many more verses warning believers against blowing their cool than verses advocating such behavior. The writer of Proverbs connects anger with foolishness: “Fools quickly show that they are upset, but the wise ignore insults” (Proverbs 12:16, NCV). And the apostle Paul recommends letting our heavenly Father fight our battles: “My friends, do not try to punish others when they wrong you, but wait for God to punish them with his anger. It is written: ‘I will punish those who do wrong; I will repay them,’ says the Lord” (Romans 12:19, NCV).

Sometimes, however, God allows his people to fuss and remain faithful. Such is the case when King David furrows his brow and huffs:

“God, I wish you would kill the wicked!
Get away from me, you murderers!
They say evil things about you.
Your enemies use your name thoughtlessly.
Lord, I hate those who hate you;
I hate those who rise up against you.
I feel only hate for them;
they are my enemies” (Psalm 139:19–22, NCV).

Or when Nehemiah gets upset after learning about the wealthy Israelites’ exploitation of the poor: “Then I was very angry when I had heard … these words” (Nehemiah 5:6, NASB).

What’s noteworthy in these situations is that David called down curses on sworn enemies of God, and Nehemiah directed his irritation at the “haves” repressing the “have-nots.” Both men were angry because of ungodly people or activities.

c553e89ff8ab92aec687b339d015754d

And Jesus expressed anger—at the Pharisees who exhibited such hard hearts, and at the crass commercialism that sullied the temple (; )—to convey extreme displeasure over sin. Those reasons are the key to righteous anger.

How does this affect me? As Christ-followers, we’re totally appropriate getting upset over sin, too. Evils such as abuse, racism, pornography, and child sex trafficking should incense us.

But no matter how reprehensible the people or activities we’re condemning, we still aren’t justified to sin in our responses: “When you are angry, do not sin, and be sure to stop being angry before the end of the day” (Ephesians 4:26, NCV). Those of us with confrontational personalities might want to ask ourselves the question, Is my motive to be right or to be righteous? before ripping into the offending parties.

Such considerations also help us be pokey in getting peeved: “Let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God” (James 1:19–20, ESV). Instead of replying immediately, simply counting to ten before reacting usually leads to much better results in a contentious situation.

Then after we take offense, we should take redemptive action. Christians must get involved with organizations working to free children from slavery and volunteer at shelters working to protect battered women. We must lead the charge against hatred and oppression and cruelty!

“Ultimately, if our outrage results in restoring people into loving, healing relationships with Jesus, it’s righteous anger.”

Waking people up from their distractions or even apathy is my goal in this world; as I can speak and write what I must; to do so! Because you and I know that what is going on in this world today is exponentially far worse than all those sins and wrongs that were committed by the Pharisees that Jesus actually reprimanded and condemned! What do we think would be His reaction if here now to deal directly with this horror! It’s certainly coming and will be the End!

God bless and keep in constant communion with our Lord Jesus Christ and heavenly Father through the Holy Ghost. Amen.

Archbishop Viganò: The end does not justify the means

Posted on July 22, 2021 by Catholicism Pure & Simple

July 21, 2021, Maike Hickson at LifeSiteNews:

Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, in a foreword to a book on the problem of the coronavirus vaccine, decries the satanic nature of this vaccine using tissue of aborted babies in its production and testing. For this Italian prelate, the vaccine is a tool of the globalist ideology which is “anti-human, anti-religious, and antichristic.”

Viganò sees that “abortion is proposed by the Satanists as a true and proper religious rite,” arguing that in this Satanic world view, through an abortion-tainted vaccine, one becomes a member of the Satanic anti-church. He writes that Satan claims, “through the pharmaceutical companies that use fetal tissue from abortions to manufacture a so-called vaccine that is presented in the delirium of Covid-19 as a sacrament of salvation by which one is incorporated into the ‘mystical body’ of Satan, the globalist anti-church.”

Mors Tua Vita Mea (Your death is my life) is the title of the Italian book on the abortion-tainted coronavirus vaccines to which Archbishop Viganò has contributed a foreword (see excerpts of it in English translation below). Edited by Professor Massimo Viglione, the book contains essays also by Bishop Athanasius Schneider and LifeSite’s editor-in-chief John-Henry Westen. Its subtitle is: “The End Does Not Justify the Means.”https://cdn.vmrcommunications.com/stencil-files/2377ed9c-352e-4593-83f4-67e8b265a0df/index.html

For Archbishop Viganò, there is no doubt that coronavirus vaccines can never justify the killing of unborn babies. On the contrary, this vaccine seems to be used as a means to getting us more and more used to the killing of babies for the sake of humanity. He states:

…we cannot fail to see how instrumental it [the vaccine] is, precisely in its “mystical” value, to the collective acceptance of human sacrifice as normal and indeed necessary: the most innocent and defenseless creature, the baby in the womb in the third month of gestation, is sacrificed and dismembered in order to extract tissue from his still palpitating body with which to produce a non-cure, a non-vaccine, which not only does not heal from the virus, but in all likelihood causes a greater percentage of death than Covid itself, especially in the elderly or those who are sick.

Below is the excerpt of Archbishop Viganò’s foreword to the book Mors Tua Vita Mea, published with kind permission by Professor Massimo Viglione:

Aures habent, et non audient.(They have ears and do not hear).
Ps 113

The barbarism in which our society finds itself is now evident: its values have been gradually erased as hateful vestiges of an extinct world, to the advantage of the delusions of globalist ideology, which shows itself to be ever more anti-human, anti-religious, and antichristic. The most antithetical principle of this infernal barbarism with respect to Christian civilization is infanticide, the human sacrifice of innocent victims offered to Satan; and despite the horror of seeing it brazenly admitted, we cannot be surprised if abortion is proposed by the Satanists as a true and proper religious rite, to which protection must be given in the name of freedom of worship. The ancient pagan rituals – omnes dii gentium demonia, says the Psalm – live again today in the sacrificial offering that unfortunate mothers believe can be claimed as a right.

If the firstborn of Israel belong to the Lord, the simia Dei demands much more of the firstborn and even claims them through the pharmaceutical companies that use fetal tissue from abortions to manufacture a so-called vaccine that is presented in the delirium of Covid-19 as a sacrament of salvation by which one is incorporated into the “mystical body” of Satan, the globalist anti-church. On the other hand, the “liturgical” connotation of the pandemic intentionally echoes signs and symbols proper to the True Religion in such a way as to deceive even the simple and push them to conform to a collective cult that exempts them from making decisions independently and binds them to an uncritical obedience. We cannot forget the funeral processions of military trucks, the contradictory and intolerant attitude of the Covid priests, the health magisterium of the “experts,” the inquisition against the denier “heretics,” and the fideistic adherence to the most grotesque superstitions passed off as science by virologist sorcerers and television vestals.

The gene serum that is called a vaccine, as scientists and specialists have very well demonstrated and as its producers themselves admit, does not guarantee immunity; it does not rule out serious short-term and long-term side effects; it is not effective against certain variants of Covid; it does not eliminate the need for masks and social distancing; in the majority of cases the number of positive tests increases, and so media terrorism and the tightening of containment measures also increases. Proposed as a panacea, the so-called “vaccine” has turned out only to be the source of enormous, scandalous profits for Big Pharma and, at the same time, serves as a pretext to impose health passports and other systems for controlling the masses and limiting natural liberties.

But alongside this obvious uselessness of the “vaccine” – a uselessness that any doctor not subservient to the system would have considered from the beginning, since the Corona viruses are susceptible to mutation – we cannot fail to see how instrumental it is, precisely in its “mystical” value, to the collective acceptance of human sacrifice as normal and indeed necessary: the most innocent and defenseless creature, the baby in the womb in the third month of gestation, is sacrificed and dismembered in order to extract tissue from his still palpitating body with which to produce a non-cure, a non-vaccine, which not only does not heal from the virus, but in all likelihood causes a greater percentage of death than Covid itself, especially in the elderly or those who are sick.

But who are the mothers who, denying their very nature, agree to kill their own child? The majority of them are women in their first pregnancy, unaware of the horror they are about to commit and the remorse that will accompany them forever. Here are the first-born to be consecrated to Satan: the children of unfortunate mothers and spoiled girls, who discover what it means to be mothers precisely in not wanting to be so, instead perverting their femininity by reducing it to a bargaining chip or an instrument of ephemeral enjoyment, in the name of rights which they claim for themselves but which they permit themselves to deny to the creatures they carry in their womb. The non serviam repeats itself inexorably every time the obedience of the fiat is refused and the will of the Almighty is rebelled against.

In abortion, Satan achieves the greatest injury to God: he offends Him as Creator, making the mother the murderer of her own child; he offends Him as Lord, usurping the right of life and death over innocent creatures and claiming the right to violate the Fifth Commandment with impunity; he offends Him as Redeemer, nullifying the fruits of Christ’s Passion for creatures killed without the grace of Baptism; he offends Him as Father, while also vilifying the Sacred Maternity of the Most Holy Virgin.

Great confusion reigns in this painful phase of the history of the Church: the inaction or abuse of the authority of the Hierarchy, along with the betrayal of so many false pastors and mercenaries, does not help to dispel the confusion of the faithful, and indeed the Shepherds even feed the confusion with partial, discordant and contradictory directions. In this too we can realize the gravity of the situation, and how much the defection of the Pastors is a necessary premise for the establishment of the kingdom of the Antichrist. If the Pope and the Bishops had a minimum of fear of God, they would not try to justify with unworthy sophistry a vaccine that in order to be produced requires stem cells obtained from voluntarily aborted fetuses. The pretium sanguinis would be enough to make them not even take it into consideration, but perhaps among the beneficiaries of that pretium there are also Prelates who care more about the hypocritical praise of the enemies of Christ than the heroic witness of the Faith.

Just having spent additional time perfecting a blog posting of a couple of days ago adding a testimony that is quite pertinent as to the power of the Shroud of Turin and as I see it’s profound importance of being a religious and historical relic without ever having seen it firsthand; there is no doubt in my heart and mind that God allowed and planned that this burial cloth would be an additional incentive for the world to know that Jesus Christ our Lord Savior and Redeemer was and is exactly who He said! Then this article comes along just as I finished what I needed to do with “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life” like a cue to say something here in this beautiful article regarding a beautiful soul and saint even one could say my name sake as my parents chose this name but it was the name chosen for preceding kindred passing on a name in the family tree but was also for the most poignant same reason, it being a Saintly name of historical importance to all Christians and especially those of the Catholic Church! With the Holy Scriptures and all of the Holy Prophecies handed down through the ages this additional piece of Truth provided by the Shroud that people can witness and actually see should be all that is needed for those who seek the Truth and Believe in God Almighty! Faith is the first and foremost requirement for anyone that wants to see and understand the Light of Truth that emanates from God Himself.

We’ve all been witnesses to the horrible corruption that’s been taking place throughout the world and how so many human beings are so quick in donning masks and skip church while taking the word of corrupted bureaucrats and other humans that say they only want to protect us from a virus that in actuality is nothing more than an altered bad cold/flu illness, but yet so many take their word that lock-downs and social distancing is Required; vaccines becoming mandatory; these evil concoctions that I say are the worst part of this devious plan being a bio-weapon and total lie; that even contain aborted human cell lines; in other words murdered babies from the womb! But when it comes to the Actual Truth that Jesus Christ is who he claimed to be, sent by the Father our Creator in heaven, this becomes something that many have trouble accepting for face value; when indeed everything, not just this short life on earth, depends on. The separation of the goats from the sheep is in progress like never before, with this digital highly scientific age. But, I see multitudes of people walking around on this earth like they are puppets with no clarity or interest in knowing God; only fulfilling their here and now needs or desires.

We are not beasts of burden that must be herded and corralled the way our leaders are treating us, and telling us we must be; these megalomaniacs poisoned with the lust for power and control of everything, are true tyrants and selfish despots who will take us to hell with them if we allow them to!  They are already talking about Fall Lock-Downs!  So with that in mind we all need to be asking ourselves, what do we belong to, and what will we cling to!  If you are willing to accept these wicked people and their mandates then you are of this World and will die with it.  But if you seek the ultimate Truth and either know Jesus to some degree or wish to really know Him now; then you won’t have any difficulty in letting go of this world and “Trusting in Him” completely for your “Everlasting Salvation and Life Eternal!” It’s not a difficult choice or even decision, if we just use the faculties that God provided when He created us in His image.  With that said, the biggest stumbling block for any human being is rebelliousness, arrogantly defying our Father in heaven and His will, to do our own bidding instead, which so many are now doing; and that is a one way ticket to Perdition and Hell.  God doesn’t stick people in that infernal horror and torment; they put themselves there by Rejecting our Savior, often after being given so many opportunities to change or even wake-up!

Time is passing quickly and running out even faster; for so many in this world. The pieces of Truth for us to see are quite evident and clear, just as the book of Revelation said; the signs would be evident; they surely are, because now we know the Shroud of Turin is the actual burial cloth of our Crucified and Risen Savior Jesus Christ!  We’re seeing End Time signs appearing everywhere now, more and more signs and evidence that we are living in the Latter Days; and the most obvious to me is how the global population bent down bowing to the worldly power of men and governments!  Or how so many faithful Catholics are accepting even a false prophet Bergoglio who is also advocating for NWO and all its mandates even corrupted vaccines or basically edicts as if from a king, and indeed these are from an earthly king, Satan; who is preparing the human race through his many cohorts and minions for the antichrist; that people will accept and be controlled by! It’s time to turn your heart to Jesus and let Him lead you in the things you must do while here serving our Father’s will, and then on out of this fallen, sinful, truly corrupted and artificial world, ruled by the father of all lies!  True, unconditional absolute eternal love and total commitment doesn’t exist here, I have experienced this sad flaw in humans as well as this material finite world being broken and incomplete; just like many of you have too!  Am I on a fool’s errand I ask, or am I going to really put all of my guts and faith in the only human being the Man called Jesus Christ the Savior, actually God Almighty that was on this earth for one reason, which was to rescue and save our immortal souls from damnation?

Jesus cruxifiction precious blood sm print

I’m ready Lord Jesus; so sorry for my failures and sins and I deserve to be on the cross you Lord Jesus took upon yourself for all of us here!  I pray more of the world’s peoples; the children of God wake up quickly to what is going on and more importantly what they need to do now!  Amen.

I’m including the link to the posting I mentioned, it’s not short but it is sweet; being that its focus is all about Jesus’ love for us, and I believe if you go through it all and pray; that you will be moved by the Holy Spirit!  Amen.

Thank you for spreading the word! Mr. Renz with the woman insider whistle blower are the tip of the iceberg as far as what Truth will eventually have to surface! What I’ve been saying from the get goes of the whole Covid monstrosity is how the people behind the pandemic and then the subsequent manufacturing of vaccines with a hard push to force the public to take a concoction for something that is no worse than many bad colds or the flu, which is a gene altering tool as I prefer to call it a bio-weapon; which never had proper trials and appropriate protocols as followed in years gone by for any vaccine that would be injected into human beings; and all of this is absolutely mass murder or genocide!

Even in spite of the fact that there are standard medications and vitamin therapies available to deal with this infection. I bet anyone dollars to donuts not too far down the road we will see massive numbers of people ill and dying not from any Covid Cold Virus which there is absolutely unequivocal evidence by top research doctors and scientists that the survival rate for most people infected with the virus is right about 99.98% survive. MSM played a huge role in propagating fear and the implementing of lock-downs which slow the process of establishing herd immunity thus drag out the contagion for dramatic effect and to further implement the plan or agenda; which they are just as culpable of, if not more than some monster like Bill Gates a true Luciferian member devil! All of these people not only belong in prison but they should be awaiting there executions for Crimes Against Humanity; and death sentences have always been standard for that! We’re talking major TV and Internet News personalities like a Chris Cuomo and his equally evil Governor brother who basically exterminated many of the elderly in New York nursing homes to inflate his state’s death count; a true portent of death along with most Network News Anchors and Executives!

Will this justice be served; that remains to be seen because the whole system is so corrupt the human race is teetering on the brink of collapse and total anarchy; so to me an Act of God is required to slow or impede this downward graveyard spiral that the world is in, because of the most nefarious sinister human monsters on the planet; which includes the present lunatic occupying the White House!

It’s OK if no one agrees with me I don’t expect a fan club saying things like this or any pat on the back for it; but this whole horror is so unconscionable I know in my heart and mind that I will be committing a crime by not taking a stand against all of this evil as a decent Christian and American Citizen when I have the tools and skill at my fingertips to do so! Essentially when we are all in a spiritual warfare and physical human conflict like nothing ever before; so let the chips fall where they may, but, I say round them up and start the process of getting a Full Measure of Justice; if our lives mean anything!

‘I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life’

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God”
“Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life”

 

Republication by Lawrence Morra III

Zero Lift-Off   Only The Beginning

July 19, 2021

I know my Faith and have always had it since I was a boy very passionately with many times a sensitivity that would bring me to tears. I would read Holy Scriptures to members of my family growing up feeling an affinity to the words on the page and seemed to know clearly what was being said when others around me didn’t quite understand, so I would explain it to them at which time they would be elated and say something like, now I see!

I remember a time as a young boy of about 9 years of age when walking through my neighborhood on my way from the playground nearby these two older boys by a few years who were twins approached me. We knew each other from the neighborhood but usually I would be with my friends; and so probably being alone and more vulnerable these boys thought it might be fun to pick on me and began calling me names and saying they were going to kick my butt. I remember having that same day thought about Jesus and how Christmas was coming in a couple of months, so suddenly with no fear and a complete calm I said, “why do you want to do that to me, do I ever bother you or have I ever said anything bad about you to anyone.” They looked at each other seeming surprised I think because they were expecting that I would be scared and run, or yell out mommy perhaps, like some other more vulnerable kids may have when these guys went looking to start something in the past. They said, “so Christmas is coming yea, OK;” then I said, “well Christmas is for Jesus we are supposed to love Him the Savior and He wants us to get along and love each other too, it says in the Bible!” They both took on a new appearance one of being a bit puzzled and surprised, almost a look of feeling guilty as I think back, when I then said, “we should be friends and if we show Jesus we are then Christmas will be so much better for us all, and we all get gifts so it’s what we should do to show Jesus we are good.” These two young guys suddenly said, “Hey, yea we didn’t mean it, so we can be friends if you want!” I said, “sure and we had to walk a short distance together before we turn our separate ways home, but, as we walked we became friends and Ronnie and Russell told me they will see me again, to which I said, “OK see you later.” They never even ever looked at me mean or with indifference again and they were two toughies of the hood actually. I think the Holy Spirit of God helped and changed a possible bad outcome.

As my life progressed through my teens and twenties I had much more profound experiences one where I almost drowned trying to surf just after a hurricane had passed by the area where I lived. The biggest waves were always at a notorious point along the shoreline, known for huge surf. I was only a mediocre surfer and should not have even been attempting this wild surf escapade, but some awesome proficient surfers I knew were all going, so I figured I should be like the rest of the guys. But that was a big mistake because after a struggle to even get out past the break water around the point and the huge swells, I then saw a set of three huge waves coming at me and nobody else was near by the spot I was paddling. I heard the roar of the forces of nature below as rocks or small boulders were being caught up in the tumultuous current swirling below me, and so though I knew I was into something over my head both literally and figuratively I just turned toward shore and held on as the surfboard shot upward in a flash at least a few stories to the top of a huge wave that was beginning to crest and curl over me and all I did was pearl under getting caught up in the rip tide and undertow for what seemed too long, but, rather than freak out and struggle which I sensed would be the end I knew I better just stay calm and pray which I did.  I asked Jesus to please don’t let me die and I’m sorry I did this, so I kept holding my breath; then suddenly I was at the surface much farther out to sea than I had been when I went under.

Jaws_Feat-1080x675

Suddenly there was this guy as if out of nowhere surfing right at me and cut out of that huge swell, as I tried to dive below it to not get pounded upon.  When I resurfaced this guy was still nearby and said grab hold of his board which I did and we both were paddling together toward shore. Then as we were getting a lot closer he said, “OK you can make it now,” at which time I started to swim the last 50 yards or so, then quickly I could suddenly touch the bottom with my feet and ran up on the beach, but as I did turned back to see that guy and then collapsed exhausted and hit the sand with my face and said “thank you Jesus and I won’t ever do this again,” lifting my head to look for the guy surfing again that helped me, he was nowhere to be seen, and off in the distance I saw a few others along with a friend still out in some surf. I know God saved me that day and I could go on and explain how a few other major things were happening to me out on the West Coast in California or in Chicago each time in those cases something very bad was going to happen, if not killing me at least injuring me very severely. Even another incidence once when a large aircraft distributor Thrust Ball Bearing unit that I was trying to separate the inner and outer races from each other to free up all of the steel balls inside under a massive hydraulic press. This was on my lunch hour break at work on a Navy Base when nobody was around, because this wasn’t a job duty so I was breaking the rules; it suddenly exploded under the enormous pressure releasing all of the stored up potential energy and fragments along with all those steel balls I so much wanted were now in a split second released and flew out with so much force in every direction it was like a grenade had just exploded, and though pieces stuck in a nearby cinder-block wall every fragment missed me thank God, because if they hadn’t I would probably have been killed.

Now I say all of this, only because I know after many years that when I see horrible accidents or bad things happen to many people in this world maiming them or ending their lives, which I did see a lot more than I wanted to when working as a news shooter; I say “there but for the grace of God go I.”  I was spared many times and I know it, but, my job is to do something with it, so perhaps I accomplish what it is God still wants me to do.  Part of that might be to tell all of you this, so each one of you will be more sensible and cautious than I had been and more importantly you will confide in the Lord at all times, seeking His direct input in all you do, so as not to make a big plunder while at the same time increase your faith; because you truly believe, and want to grow in your love for 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

Now what follows I know you will find very helpful and interesting if you haven’t seen any of this before, and perhaps if you have it would be best to share it with others you care about and love; or maybe even an enemy; and better yet perhaps a person who needs to wake up.

Why Did Jesus Say ‘I am the Way, the Truth and the Life’ in John 14:6?

In John 14, Jesus said to His disciples, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”

Jesus: The Way to the Father

“Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?” Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.” Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.” Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.” John 14:5-10

Meaning of ‘I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life’

John 14:6Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

I am the Way. Our Lord takes the opportunity of this discourse about the place he was going to, and the way unto it, more fully to instruct his disciples concerning himself, saying, “I am the way.” Christ is not merely the way, as he goes before his people as an example or merely as a prophet, pointing out unto them by his doctrine the way of salvation; but he is the way of salvation itself by his obedience and sacrifice; nor is there any other. He is the way of his Father’s appointing, and which is entirely agreeable to the perfections of God, and suitable to the case and condition of sinners. 

He is the way to all the blessings of the covenant of grace, and he is the right way into a Gospel church state here; no one comes rightly into a church of Christ but by faith in him; and he is the way to heaven: he is entered into it himself by his own blood, and has opened the way to it through himself for his people.

The Truth. He is not only true but truth itself: this may regard his person and character. He is the true God, and eternal life; truly and really a man; as a prophet, he taught the way of God in truth; as a priest, he is a faithful, as well as a merciful one, true and faithful to him that appointed him; and as a King, just and true are all his ways and administrations: he is the sum and substance of all the truths of the gospel.

They are all full of him and center in him; and he is the truth of all the types and shadows, promises and prophecies of the Old Testament; they have all their accomplishment in him; and he is the true way, in opposition to all false ones of man’s devising. And this phrase seems to be opposed to a notion of the Jews, that the law was the true way of life, and who confined truth to the law. They have a saying, that, “Moses and his law are the truth.”

This they make Korah and his company say in hell. That the law of Moses was the truth, is certain; but it is too strong an expression to say of Moses himself, that he was the truth; but well agrees with Christ, by whom grace and truth came in opposition to Moses, by whom came the law: but when they say, “there is no truth but the law”, they do not speak the truth. More truly do they speak, when, in answer to that question, “what is truth?” it is said, that he is the living God, and King of the world, characters that well agree with Christ.

And the Life. Christ is the author and giver of life, natural, spiritual, and eternal; or he is the way of life, or “the living way”; in opposition to the law, which was so far from being the way of life, that it was the ministration of condemnation and death. 

He always, and ever will be the way; all in this way live, none ever die, and it is a way that leads to eternal life: and to conclude all the epithets in one sentence, Christ is the true way to eternal life. It is added by way of explanation of him, as the way.

This commentary is an excerpt from John Gill’s Exposition of the Bible.

Bible Commentary of ‘The Way, The Truth, The Life’

Matthew Henry made the following commentary about the Bible chapter of John 14:

Thomas enquired concerning the way (v. 5), without any apology for contradicting his Master.1. He said, “Lord, we know not whither thou goest, to what place or what state, and how can we know the way in which we must follow thee? We can neither guess at it, nor enquire it out, but must still be at a loss.’’ Christ’s testimony concerning their knowledge made them more sensible of their ignorance, and more inquisitive after further light. Thomas here shows more modesty than Peter, who thought he could follow Christ now. Peter was the more solicitous to know whither Christ went. Thomas here, though he complains that he did not know this, yet seems more solicitous to know the way. 

His confession of his ignorance was commendable enough. If good men are in the dark, and know but in part, yet they are willing to own their defects. But, (2.) The cause of his ignorance was culpable. They knew not whither Christ went, because they dreamed of a temporal kingdom in external pomp and power, and doted upon this, notwithstanding what he had said again and again to the contrary. Hence it was that, when Christ spoke of going away and they’re following him, their fancy ran upon his going to some remarkable city or other, Bethlehem, or Nazareth, or Capernaum, or some of the cities of the Gentiles, as David to Hebron, there to be anointed king, and to restore the kingdom to Israel; and which way this place lay, where these castles in the air were to be built, east, west, north, or south, they could not tell, and therefore knew not the way. Thus still we think ourselves more in the dark than we need to be concerning the future state of the church, because we expect its worldly prosperity, whereas it is spiritual advancement that the promise points at. Had Thomas understood, as he might have done, that Christ was going to the invisible world, the world of spirits, to which spiritual things only have a reference, he would not have said, Lord, we do not know the way.

Now to this complaint of their ignorance, which included a desire to be taught, Christ gives a full answer, v. 6, v. 7. Thomas had enquired both whither he went and what was the way, and Christ answers both these inquiries and makes good what he had said, that they would have needed no answer if they had understood themselves aright; for they knew him, and he was the way; they knew the Father, and he was the end; and therefore, whither I go you know, and the way you know. Believe in God as the end, and in me as the way (v. 1), and you do all you should do. (1.) He speaks of himself as the way, v. 6. Dost thou not know the way? I am the way, and I only, for no man comes to the Father but by me. Great things Christ here saith of himself, showing us, The nature of his mediation: He is the way, the truth, and the life. 

The Way, The Truth, The Light – Related Bible Verses

“So Jesus said to the Twelve, “Do you want to go away as well?” Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life, and we have believed, and have come to know, that you are the Holy One of God.” Jesus answered them, “Did I not choose you, the Twelve? And yet one of you is a devil.” He spoke of Judas the son of Simon Iscariot, for he, one of the Twelve, was going to betray him.” John 6:67-71

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil.” John 3:16-19

“If he called them gods to whom the word of God came—and Scripture cannot be broken” John 10:35

Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12

The Word Became Flesh

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. There was a man sent from God whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John testified concerning him. He cried out, saying, “This is the one I spoke about when I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’ ”) Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.” John 1:1-18

“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me.” John 14:1

What Did Jesus Mean by “The Way, the Truth, and the Life” in John 14?

As transcribed from the video above, Jaye Martin gives her explanation as to what Jesus meant when He described Himself as “the way, the truth, and the life”:

In John 14:6, Jesus says, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except by me.” That’s a very difficult passage because so many people see that we must not be open if we don’t accept all these people who come to God in other ways. But it’s very clear here, Jesus says, and we must go through Christ to get to God. And so, we see that he was truth. And sometimes it’s hard to communicate the truth because there’s something that we want to gloss over. I would say for each of us, we need to say, am I communicating truth, am I living out with integrity what I know to be true? Because I believe if I honestly lived out truth every day, other people would see that. And sometimes it’s hard to explain it to people, but I think when they ask us, we need to say, Jesus says he is the only way. And that’s great news because all they have to do is say, okay, open my eyes, Lord. And I want to see that. And that’s the truth of the gospel.

We want to provide easy to read articles that answer your questions about the meaning, origin, and history of specific verses within Scripture’s context. It is our hope that these will help you better understand the meaning and purpose of God’s Word in relation to your life today.

I brother Lawrence in Christ Jesus say, that yes the Truth does hurt at times in life and we darn well deserve it to hurt; but, think about what Jesus felt and how much Hurt He went through for every single human being and every sin from tiny ones to the most horrid in the universe out of His eternal, never-ending incomprehensible love for us!  We don’t hurt; we are stubborn and thick at times, but we are not hurting, take my word for this and Trust this TRUTH; Trust in the Lord.  You pray on anything I have said along with all this presentation offers, and I know if you do it with a genuine humble and gentle supplication from your heart speaking to Jesus Christ, you are going to see the Truth without a doubt; which is going to Set You Free!  It will make you cry, I know because I do, but, that is a sign too, that Jesus is with you and He doesn’t want you to leave Him or be lost;  He loves you and wants you to be with Him eternally in heaven. Amen.

I do hope you’re still with me here and please get ready to blow your mind and see Jesus Christ, even if not in the flesh in person; because the Second Coming is approaching for sure, but, this is a glimpse of what our Savior looks like for real, like when he was here on Earth over 2000 years ago!  I cry when I look at this and I felt the same way as I was watching the above 2 minute video presentation with that music at the start, like an important message for my whole reason for living was coming; which hit me deep in my heart for some reason. God bless you. Amen.

Pope Benedict XVI Believes In The Shroud’s Authenticity

All the way back to 2010 the Pope at the time Benedict XVI knew by faith and his deep prayer on the matter of the Shroud’s authenticity that it was the burial cloth of Jesus. Now with the gifts and advanced scientific tools that God has provided mankind we have the conclusive final proof presented in this presentation!  I believe that without Jesus actually being here right now as in the Second Coming; that even then there would be multitudes who resist the Truth, and would not accept Him!~  But, God has given mankind enough time and incentives like this miraculous piece of the actual history; that Jesus Christ is our Savior and that all He said is truth as He is Truth!  The rest is up to us, by Faith in Him and all He has taught us; to accept or deny Him! Amen.

Pope all but endorses Shroud of Turin

Pope Benedict XVI all but gave an outright endorsement of the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin on Sunday, calling the cloth that some believe is Christ’s burial shroud an icon “written with the blood” of a crucified man.

During a visit to the Shroud in the northern Italian city of Turin, Benedict didn’t raise the scientific questions that surround the linen and whether it might be a medieval forgery. Instead, he delivered a powerful meditation on the faith that holds that the Shroud is indeed Christ’s burial cloth.

“This is a burial cloth that wrapped the remains of a crucified man in full correspondence with what the Gospels tell us of Jesus,” Benedict said. He said the relic — one of the most important in Christianity — should be seen as a photographic document of the “darkest mystery of faith” — that of Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection.

The 14-foot-long, 3.5-foot-wide (4.3-meter-long, 1 meter-wide) cloth has gone on public display for the first time since the 2000 Millennium celebrations and a subsequent 2002 restoration. Kept in a bulletproof, climate-controlled case in Turin’s cathedral, it has drawn nearly 2 million reservations from pilgrims and tourists eager to spend three to five minutes viewing it.

The Shroud bears the figure of a crucified man, complete with blood seeping from his hands and feet, and believers say Christ’s image was recorded on the linen’s fibers at the time of his resurrection.

Benedict focused in his meditation on the message that the blood stains conveyed, saying the Shroud was “an icon written in blood; the blood of a man who was whipped, crowned with thorns, crucified and injured on his right side.”

“The image on the Shroud is that of a dead man, but the blood speaks of his life. Each trace of blood speaks of love and life,” Benedict said. The Vatican to date had tiptoed around the issue of just what the Shroud of Turin is, calling it a powerful symbol of Christ’s suffering while making no claim to its authenticity.
Benedict’s meditation — delivered after he prayed as if in a trance before the shroud — appeared to imply that in the end it doesn’t matter what science says about its authenticity.

“The Shroud of Turin offers us the image of how his body lay in the tomb during that time (of death); time that was brief chronologically — about a day and a half — but was immense, infinite in its value and significance,” Benedict said.

A Vatican researcher Barbara Frale said late last year that faint writing on the linen, which she studied through computer-enhanced images, proves the cloth was used to wrap Jesus’ body after his crucifixion.

Barbara Frale is an Italian paleographer at the Vatican Secret Archives. Frale has written books about the Templars and she has a special interest in the history of the Shroud of Turin. In September 2001, she found an authentic copy of the Chinon Parchment. Wikipedia

In that ecstatic moment, Wiebe was finally convinced about the Resurrection

image86 (2)

“Trinity Western University professor Phillip Wiebe [pictured] has been a convert to the power of The Shroud of Turin since 2000. That’s when the 66-year-old old Anglican academic had an epiphany upon first viewing the shroud in Turin Cathedral in northern Italy. Many Christians consider the shroud the bona fide burial cloth of a crucified Jesus.

Even though Wiebe teaches at an evangelical university where faculty are expected to adhere to traditional Christian doctrine, the member of the Church of the Ascension in Langley City admits being blown away by his first-hand experience of the Turin shroud.

In that ecstatic moment, Wiebe was finally convinced that the resurrection of Jesus Christ was an actual physical event. “I was shocked at the confidence I felt. It made me realize I had doubts about the resurrection.”

Since then, Wiebe, a philosophy professor who has written scholarly books on reported religious miracles and visions, such as God and Other Spirits, has been giving scores of presentations about the four-metre-long shroud.”
