It’s the Great Apostasy, let’s stop the denial

It is becoming more and more evident – but there are people who still don’t see and jump to the defence of the false prophet. It is important to recognize his anti-faith and derogatory statements and not make excuses for him. He , who speaks like this, is not a true shepherd. We also need to know what Scripture teaches us.

By Br. Alexis Bugnolo

The beloved disciple and faithful son of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Apostle Saint John warned us a little less than 2000 years ago: In the end, a Great Apostasy would sweep away many Christians.

Saint John tells of the Great Apostasy in the Twelfth Chapter of his Book of the Apocalypse, also known as the Book of Revelations. I will put in red text the interpretation of this chapter given by Franciscan Saints* and I will use the English text of the Douay Reims Bible for the scriptural citation:

12 And a great sign appeared in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars: (Heaven here refers to the Catholic Church, which is Heaven…

The Battle is On…

AM+DG

When the battle started…

 

 

 

 

 

It all began nearly 7 years ago when Bergoglio began to sit on the chair of Peter. It took a while for people to sit up and take notice of his far from humble demeanour and the language he used to deride, mock and twist authentic Catholic teaching, as well as for mocking good faithful Catholics . We have been through a lot with this man.

Paganism entered the fray

But we were not ready for what happened in October. We should have known – Laudato Si and its UN agenda; the “sins against creation”; the light show on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception  (showing pagan gods and  goddesses) on the façade of the Vatican buildings; the ‘Season of Creation’ which was announced in the months before the Amazonian synod; the announcement this year of a “new Evangelisation”, as well as a “New Humanism”, but there didn’t seem to be adequate alarm bells ringing; there should have been. But what really made people take notice was the pagan “Pachamama” (mother Earth) ceremony, the pagan idols, the prayer and participation by bishops in these ceremonies; their installation in a Church dedicated to our Blessed Mother…finally everyone was sitting up and taking notice.

The events seemed to be quite surprising to the majority of people. The mainstream news has a lot to answer for. Many bishops and priests have closed their eyes for too long and let it all slide. Now they are afraid to speak. Thank God for the courageous few.

The onslaught begins in earnest…

The Amazonian synod in October was the beginning of the onslaught.

Some of the stories shown in the headlines by Life Site News this past week include:

Australian Catholic youth festival appears to receive pagan blessing by guest speaker. See: https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/australian-catholic-youth-festival-appears-to-receive-pagan-blessing-by-guest-speaker

Cdl Burke criticizes bishops’ silence on blasphemous Netflix film, poster in Vatican

Abp Viganò defends Virgin Mary in response to new remarks by Pope

Theologian corrects Vatican archbishop who said priests could ‘accompany’ assisted suicide victims

UK teacher erases ‘Lord Jesus’ from Christmas carol to avoid offending other faiths

Exorcists warn: Mainstream culture working overtime to sell satanism to children.

These articles tell us:

        • The “paganism” abomination is spreading in the Church.
        • Blasphemy (against Jesus) is spreading – a new film and also a blasphemous poster which in a very cunning way  attacks humanity, our way of life and our values.
        •  More comments from the FP/PF deriding the Virgin Mary and her role.
        • The Vatican allowing blasphemy to be advertised on its buildings/walls
        • Vatican archbishop defending the pro- euthanasia anti-life stance by defending the right of priests to “accompany” these persons
        • Changing Christmas carols so that they are no longer about our Holy Saviour’s birth under the guise of “discrimination” against other faiths.
        • Mainstream culture spreading satanism to children

There is nothing off limits:

God’s Commandments, Christ’s teachings, our Blessed Mother Mary, our holy priests, our Christian culture; even Sacred Spaces and buildings – (pagan idols and ceremonies, blasphemous posters, Statue of Luther); The Holy Mass …

God shows His Hand – the chastisements

We are experiencing God’s wrath. Down here in Oz, some are trying to blame it on ’climate change’ but many are acutely aware that this huge fire (currently burning) cannot be explained. See the article in the Sydney Morning Herald: https://www.smh.com.au/national/nsw/the-monster-a-short-history-of-australia-s-biggest-forest-fire-20191218-p53l4y.html

Even atheists are taking notice.

We are used to fires here in the summer. But this one has been preceded by drought, farmers’ crops failing,  parched land, tinder dry vegetation  and our water supply is dangerously low. Sometimes fires begin with power lines arcing, or perhaps on a very hot day with low humidity, or even by a dropped cigarette butt or campfire;  even deliberately lit. But the monster fire ( as it has been dubbed) wasn’t started by any of these usual causes. It was caused by a single, lightening bolt.  There is no doubt – God is angry, and He is making it known.

The reason is obvious

It is not just the antics of our Church leaders and the faithless people who follow them into heresies and blasphemies of all kinds; it is not just the Masons and the modernists who are destroying Christ’s Church, it is the immorality and denial of all God’s commandments – it is the abortion, euthanasia, the lgbtq lifestyles, the protection of pedophilia (even amongst bishops and priests), and the laws enshrining these – it is the sacrilegious treatment of the Holy Sacraments. It is the countries that once were Christian- that have turned against their God.

The chastisements that we were warned about, began quite a while ago, but now they are intensifying.

Now is the time to beg God’s Mercy for our sins, for the sins of our nations and for the sins of the Church.

We have to join the battle...

We can’t duck and weave any more. We have to speak up – to all our friends and acquaintances, our relatives, the disbelieving church goers, our local priests, many of whom keep their lips zipped, or they continually announce something that sounds “good” that the FP/PF has said. It’s like they are only looking at one side of the equation – they are ignoring all the bad things he says and does.

Don’t they realize they have to answer to God for all the souls that might end up being lost because of their timidity or lack of discernment?

We must do our best too. We too will be judged.

We have to FIGHT with all our might.

WE have to PRAY with all our might.

We have to shout it from the housetops.

Silence permits evil to flourish.

Silence will cost souls their salvation.

Jesus warned us about this battle.

Read about it here in a message from the Book of Truth:

16 April 2013 @ 8:45pm

https://missionofsalvation.com/message-0765/

” … the climb to Mount Calvary My Church on Earth has to endure has begun, as foretold. All those who speak in My Name, who love Me and who honour My Teachings, will now have to face this torturous journey in order to uphold My Holy Word.

The Word according to God will be pulled apart as paganism sweeps the Earth.   To all of those who follow Me, I say walk with your heads held high. Never waiver from the Truth when those including your family and friends, plead with you to turn away from My Holy Word, given to you during My time on Earth. You must not weaken your resolve to remain loyal to Me. Some of you will be strong during the journey of persecution. Others will fall. Some will give up. Others will decide to accept the lies presented as Holy Doctrine and will be separated from Me.

I will carry all those on My Shoulders who trust in Me completely. I will grant protection to all those who are brave enough to continue to offer the Holy Mass in the way in which it is meant to be conducted. I will protect the Sacraments presented by those holy sacred servants of Mine who refuse to budge or leave My Service. Those who pledge themselves to My Care will have nothing to worry about. Those who have been given the Truth all of their lives, and reject My Teachings, in favour of lies, will be cast away from Me. My Justice is to be feared, for let no man believe that they can delve into an abyss of deceit without remorse in their souls and not suffer the consequences.

My Love will be strong enough to embrace those who will be confused during these times. I will reach out to all of God’s children who seek Me out, no matter how blackened their souls are.  In the midst of the turmoil, I will make myself known at last and My Spirit will sweep the Earth just as people believe that they cannot take any more.

Remember that I Am the First and the Last, nothing can conquer Me, I Am All-Powerful and when you feel that the wickedness inflicted upon the world by the enemies of God is overwhelming, that I Am here. I allow for this suffering, this final persecution, because it is the final weapon against the beast. Without it, he would steal the souls of the majority of the world’s population.

This battle for souls will shock those who truly know Me because the wickedness you will have to bear witness to, will be seen in men you believe to be good. Satan will leave no stone unturned and he will use every soul, especially those who are close to Me, in order to turn their backs on My Teachings. While the battle will rage for a time, I will, through this Mission, save billions through conversion.

Your Jesus”

Jesus is with us in this battle.

We are soldiers of Christ.

We must fight so that we can partake in the victory.

Amen.

Out of the Trenches and Ready for Battle

AM+DG

First, an excerpt from a poem written by Fr X:

….So why do we sit and wait here?

                   Are we cowards, afraid of night?

We were only too ready to watch and cheer,

                But are we ready to fight?

After all, it’s safe in the trenches,

             Why abandon security…?

Reflections on Hezekiah & Sennacherib:

Several things struck me in both the readings which God provided for us in our prayer group on Thursday 16th August, 2018. (See our post at:

  https://remnantdisciplesjtm.com/2018/08/11/jtm-crusade-prayer-meeting-thursday-9th-august-2018/ )

Every Bible reading has relevance both yesterday, today and tomorrow and we will see and understand the relevance for us- as long as we are receptive to God opening our eyes. God intervenes, and is in, every situation.

The Bible reading about Hezekiah reminded me of what had transpired in relation to a faithful priest and a dissident bishop only a few days beforehand. The elderly priest (of ‘proven fidelity’) has written and spoken openly from the pulpit about the threats to our faith and true Church Teachings, including identifying those speaking heresy right at the top.

When he wrote about the sad state of affairs in his bulletin, a parishioner decided to complain to the Bishop that Father X had criticised the Pope.

Our bishop lately has been on a vigorous campaign of change for the church which includes accepting more than just the peoples affected by same-sex attraction; but their sexual acts and lives as well. He is determined to be a man after Pope Francis’ own mould in more ways than one… He has already sent into obscurity the only other priest of sound doctrine that has stood up to him (that we know of). Notably in connection with our second reading, that banished priest was targeted, among other things, for celebrating the traditional Latin Mass.

So when the bishop wrote that he now wanted to interview this elderly, faithful priest about his bulletin, we were alerted and wanted to know what we could do to help! Our network is a large one and word gets around quickly. This reminded me of King Sennacherib threatening to invade Hezekiah’s city and intending to breach and approach with the intention of attacking. We were afraid that he would take this priest’s Parish and force him in to retirement or obscurity; probably with little warning or explanation, which would also leave the parishioners fearful and scandalized. Like sheep without their shepherd, wondering who would be next.

So how were we to help?

Firstly, a large force was gathered. All those notified of the situation began to surround the PP, the Bishop and the situation with prayer. All those able, (some of whom do not even attend the Parish, but who are JtM prayer group members) assembled at the Parish at the intended appointed time of the Bishop’s ‘visit’ to give him support;- whether that was to be silently or through testimonies and witness. The parish priest was going to be left in no doubt as to how much support he really had.

But in the meantime, the priest had formed and sent his defence by letter, where he reminded the Bishop of just how long he had watched over this Parish, how many seminarians his faithful Parish had cultivated this year alone and how he would hate to think that they and so many of his beloved parishioners (past and present) might be tempted to think ill of the Bishop if he acted rashly. He reminded him of the higher authorities to which he could appeal, if needed- including our good Archbishop. In other words, the parish priest summoned his faithful army, strengthened his defences and carefully prepared his weapons.

As reinforcements arrived that morning, it was clear that the immediate threat had been vanquished as the ‘visit’ had been called off. However, delighted to see all the faithful supporters the parish priest (PP) graciously invited them all in and conducted a tour of his home with stories and photos of all the good bishops and archbishops, he had known, as well as good priests, and battles he had fought before with ‘the hippies’. He was jovial and confident in the Lord, clearly intending to stand his ground and not to forsake The Lord or his post in the dangers threatening the Church and His flock. This lasted not a short time either; he spent the better part of the morning talking to them. He reminded them Whom the faithful have on their side; the Lord God Almighty! All those gathered were amazed by his strength and his faith, and left joyfully, having taken great confidence from his words.

If you read the Bible reading we opened upon, at prayer group 2 days later, I think you will see the comparisons and how God was pointing us to what had happened and how to stand firm in all the battles ahead- relying on the Lord God alone.

The actual bible reading and Book of Truth readings from last week are reproduced below:

2 Chronicles 32: 1-8

Sennacherib’s Invasion.

But after all this and all Hezekiah’s fidelity, there came Sennacherib, king of Assyria. He invaded Judah and besieged the fortified cities, intending to breach and take them.When Hezekiah saw that Sennacherib was coming with the intention of attacking Jerusalem, he took the advice of his princes and warriors to stop the waters of the springs outside the city; they promised their help. A large force was gathered and stopped all the springs and also the stream running nearby. For they said, “Why should the kings of Assyria come and find an abundance of water?” He then looked to his defenses: he rebuilt the wall where it was broken down, raised towers upon it, and built another wall outside. He strengthened the Millo of the City of David and made a great number of spears and shields. Then he appointed army commanders over the people. He gathered them together in his presence in the open space at the gate of the city and encouraged them with these words: “Be strong and steadfast; do not be afraid or dismayed because of the king of Assyria and all the horde coming with him, for there is more with us than with him. He has only an arm of flesh, but we have the LORD, our God, to help us and to fight our battles.” And the people took confidence from the words of Hezekiah, king of Judah.

Readings from the Book of Truth

Mother of Salvation: This war, to uphold the Word of God, will mean that those priests, who do remain true to Him, will have to seek refuge

August 5, 2013 @ 1:05pm

My dear children, this is going to be a time of great trials in your faith. The Catholic Church will be the Church in which the great division will commence. It will be in this Church that My Son’s priests will suffer the most, during the great apostasy, which it will, very soon, have to endure from within.

To those of my Son’s faithful priests, who will be torn in two by indecision, you must be aware of the need to remain in union with the Merciful Christ. You must never feel tempted to desert His Church, by accepting falsities from those amongst you who have fallen into grave error. You must revere my Son at all costs and lead His people on the path to holiness, no matter how difficult this will be for you.

Those of you who will continue to perform the traditional Mass will be tormented until you agree to abandon it entirely. Many amongst your religious orders will betray you to the enemy behind your back. You will, just like my Son before you, be taken before those who claim to be your peers and be accused of heresy, for insisting on continuing to show respect for the most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

The new words, which will amount to the most vile desecration of my Son’s Body, will be forced down upon those sacred servants who dare to object.

It will be within the Catholic Church that brother will fight brother, sister against sister, father against son, children against parent, until there are two sides.

This war, to uphold the Word of God, will mean that those priests, who do remain true to Him, will have to seek refuge. To do this you must start preparing and find such places where you will be able to offer the Holy Mass and provide the Sacraments to God’s children.

I, the Mother of Salvation, will protect such refuges and by the placement of the Seal of the Living God, given to the world by My Father, on the inside walls, they will remain invisible to the enemies of God.

Do not be afraid of these things, because if you prepare well, you will lead God’s children to salvation. Should you not heed this warning, you will be taken captive in mind, body and soul, by the enemies of my Son and salvation will not be yours.

Those who do the bidding of the false prophet will need much prayer, for some of them are blind to the Truth. Others, who will know the Truth, but who will side with those who will deny my Son’s death on the Cross, are to be feared. They will inflict terrible harm on the innocent followers of Christ.

By remaining loyal to the Truth, you will lead my Son’s Remnant Army, so that it becomes a formidable force, against the evil one and those he directs in his fight against my Son’s true servants on Earth.

You must, when the time comes, refuse to accept direction from those who will desecrate the Word of God and through their lies and new obscene doctrines, will mislead many. Those who accept any distortion of the Mass or the Holy Sacraments, will be answerable to my Son. For you will have become, unwitting, servants to the evil one and many, many, souls will be lost, for they will be drawn into rituals, which will pay homage to Satan. These rituals will honour the false prophet and the antichrist, who are enemies of God.

Pray, pray, pray that the Truth will be seen and that lies will be exposed for what they are – an affront to my Son’s agonizing Crucifixion.

Your beloved Mother

Mother of Salvation

We will continue to pray for you, Father X. May you always stand firm and lead us as Hezekiah.
