Zero Lift-Off Only The Beginning

“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.
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.
