The Great Apostasy – an Epic poem

I love Crusader Will’s work but I don’t always understand all the hidden meanings or references to history past. So he decided this time to write an explanation of key points and references.I have put these in italics and in a purple font.
*****

Every stanza follows the same acrostic pattern of THE GREAT spelled out downwards with the first letter of each line,
and APOSTASY spelled out upwards with the last letter of each line.
The first stanza is printed with this pattern emphasized.
*****

THE GREAT APOSTASY

The prophets have always said there would come our way
Huge faith upheavals, but it has taken us
Extremely long to discern the present drama.
Gethsemane knew. It cost Jesus the blood-filled sweat
Recorded in scripture  but not there ascribed to taunts
Emptied in one straight-Satan facts-farrago
Announcing  to Jesus ours the time of the Cup
To be drained again on salvation’s arena.

2
There’s nothing new about rampant heresy:
Hard heads at the helm; in their wake the massed light-weights –
Easygoing dupes of this topnotch miasma
Grimly extolled by churchmen off their own proud bat
(Righteous-pretending but stubbornly erroneous).
Exceptional the lay or clerical hero
Assured enough to back the Book of Truth up.
Time now to get candid with these arcana.

Stanzas 2/3  This refers chiefly to the Arian heresy  rampant in the early Church, which was largely defeated by the efforts of the laity; but the same success with other heresies is not being enjoyed today, despite the efforts of many lay-persons and some clergy.

3. The mayhem depends on a mix of villainy,
Happenstance and lethargy to cause the morass
Everyone gets shown as on a diorama.
God desires,  for those who seek him, enlightenment
Regarding the small-circle initiatives
Endorsed by the masses almost in toto;
And, failing a repeat past Church-faithful rise-up,
The damage now amounts to a major trauma.

4

The piece you may now be reading carefully
Has its origins in mind-and-spirit arts
Employing faith-received as faith-apologia.
God’s recasting my late-life discursive-verse craft.
Roping thought and word into a case of fixed forms,
Era-straddling highlights flaws those ‘Novus-Ordo’
Accept. But my type tends more to a whole-truth grasp,
Though it’s starter’s-stage in my fine arts-agenda.

The Awful Disclosures of Bella Dodd supply
Heaven-sent chances for Fatima-background facts.
Even years before, pleas were made to Lucia –
Giant in promise –  for a simple joint event
Requiring hierarchy and pope to take steps
(Explained in full) to stop a warped scenario –           
At source – in Russia – from spreading world-wide.This step       
The Evil One stymied with his vast militia.

5/6. Bella Dodd was a Communist who converted to Catholicism and revealed that a huge infiltration into clergy in the Church had been made by men who were without any faith or any commitment to chastity. The purpose of this was to destroy the Church from within.
This manouvre, originating with Stalin, was not ostensibly revealed when Our Lady requested the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart, which she said would result in the conversion of Russia,  and in the cessation of the spread of errors by Russia throughout the world. This Consecration has never been made.
The phrase ‘Awful Disclosures’ comes from the title of a mendacious 19-century anti-Catholic book. namely The Awful Disclosures of Maria Monk, about sexual misconduct in a convent

6

The Church has never made, since, specifically,
Heart-of-Mary-Immaculate consecrations
Expressly aimed at Russia, to convert Russia.
Gaps like this Stalin filled with evil intent,
Rallying young men to infiltrate,  with huge success,
Every corner of the Church. Dark their proviso :
Asked – Church-destructive from within,  faith-frauds,  hip –
To form ordained homosexual substrata.

The ‘Third Secret of Fatima’ Sister Lucy
Had a disclosure time-frame for, which went amiss,
Eventually turning out soap-opera.
Gingerly was the text opened;  then squinted at;
Read; then poked back in a Vatican recess.
Emphatically: an untimely ‘no-no’.
Agitators brokered why it was for the chop:
The great apostasy bore its broad schemata.

  1. The exact content of the Third Secret of Fatima is hotly contested. The interpretation favoured by contemporary Traditionalists is that it refers to the situation known as the Great Apostasy which has been building up for a long time, emanating from various quarters, including the heresy known as Modernism and the secret society known as Freemasonry which has an enormous influence on the modern world, including the Catholic Church.

8

Time for the ‘treatment’ to be shown Freemasonry:
Hell’s ancient masterpiece. Variously: blandness
Ensconced down a quiet street; grim esoterica
Glaring from an eerie film; or bright tommy-rot
Reverberating from opera stages.
Essentially: a behind the scenes imbroglio,
Activating malign developments from top
To bottom of a mind-set out of Ruritania.

  1. My inspiration for lines 2-5 is: a typical Masonic hall exterior in any town; the film Eyes Wide Shut; and Mozart’s opera The Magic Flute. Ruritania is an imaginary country appearing in literature and stage-works to depict a certain Central European atmosphere.

9

The land of the Blarney broached the Real McCoy.
Heaven had said it all long long before. Bliss-
Eternal planned (though millennial euphoria
Grappled with current goings-on for a judgment
Right on the mark).  Then there the Book of Truth was:
Exact, exhaustive; a massive portfolio
Astounding and authoritative,  summing up
The times before, during and after the Parousia.

  1. The ‘Land of the Blarney’ is,  of course, Ireland, home of the visionary known as Maria Divine Mercy,  to whom was dictated the Book of Truth, which deals in great detail with the world situation unfolding over the past while in the lead-up to the events called the Warning and the Second Coming.  The word ‘parousia’ refers to the return of Jesus to the earth.  These and other details also occur in further stanzas.

10

The precise extent of the great apostasy
Has long eluded most of the faithful like us.
Even the warned-against misplaced charisma
Granted our leaders as lay matter-of-fact
Rapidly started shrinking as deceived persons
Emptied from the pews,  or, pulpit-starved of credo
As past-practised, were led from these same pews to hop
Tracks onto roads leading to a Modernist Nirvana.

11

The dynamics of apostasy are so sly.
Heterodox gangs pick up on the Fall in us,
Easing our skewered  gaze into a replica
Grown from the twists and turns in their darkness of heart.
Righteousness wilts. Poor example paralyses
Each good streak else.  Boxed fruit (one bad) rots quid pro quo.
A lone erratic can bring vast schemes to a stop.
Turbulence now congests our world panorama.

12

The remedial process will not be pretty.
Hardened sinners have no clue as to the horrors
Earmarked by experts for the phantasmagoria
Godless planners think a peak-experience treat
Replacing any kingdom-come hopes in Christians.
Even inventing myths (dear to Pope Bergoglio)
About the Tribulation they see building up,
They’ll be still more shocked than friends of Christ-Omega.

  1. The New World Order has been long in the planning. It will be short in duration.Bergoglio’ is Pope Francis’ birth surname. It is often used as a protest against his papal reign.
    Climate-change and ‘eco-salvation’ myths are part of the Tribulation that we are experiencing but which he may not recognize as apocalyptic.
    ‘Omega’ as in alpha and omega – the beginning and the end.

13.Truth is a Book open to Divine Mercy’ .                         
Here is a Google- search among many that leads
Exactly to the cosmic memoranda
God planted in Daniel but (unplumbed in the past)
Revitalized my old age despite grave doubts
Entertained for soldier-skills to be gained solo,
After this my ‘secret-agent’ phase. It’s a wrap
(Though some ploys not aired here pose a real dilemma).

14

The leadership has a gigantic role to play.
Hell could have snared many of our acquaintances,
Even friends and family. Church-ruled millennia,
Geared to atonement measures against such age-old taint,
Run into the prime problem of these stubborn times:
Exponentially, sin meets less preached embargo
As impenitence pours harder into the Cup
That Garabandal said neared peak-anathema

  1. The Garabandal prophecies of Our Lady are very important, though less well-known than Fatima. They bear out the Warning prophecies in the Book of Truth.

15

There’s a small range of options to deploy –
Hardily, secretly –  given the grave crisis
Everything’s now converging on (packed with data
Garnered from the traditions of our chequered past).
‘Remnant’ is a Biblical term,  reworked; ‘Maquis’,
Exhumed from secular conflicts not long ago –
Alternatives to qualms about the ‘ schism-trap’.
Time to preview the ‘Church of Catacombia’.

  1. There may only be a ‘remnant’ still faithful when the Lord returns.  The word ‘Maquis’ refers to the French Resistance organisation set up to defeat Nazi occupation.The ‘schism-trap’ is a phrase used to refer to the quandary facing some faithful who wonder if to cease attending parishes that practice  or will practice  grave heresy imposed on them  by  apostates in Rome,is to create schism or escape schism. Already dissenters from apostasy among the clergy are being called ‘schismatic’.
    ‘Catacombia’ is a term of my coinage, coming from the word ‘catacombs’, hiding places for the Church persecuted in ancient Rome.

16

This is the issue for which I’m pressed to lobby.
Hard times, allayed by providential promises,
Egg me on with this Church ‘final-test’ schema.
Grace perfects nature;  planning  – accomplishment.
Reality will some time be: Church-homelessness
Everywhere but a properly prepared ghetto.
An essential for every autonomous group:
Table your own Abomination-agenda.

  1. The ‘final test’ is a phrase occurring  in the Catechism of the Catholic Church to refer to the greatest crisis in her history, just before the Second Coming,  a crisis which many believe is what we are experiencing now within the Church and soon also outside the Church with the arrival of the mysterious figure known as the Antichrist. The Book of Truth gives us instructions about a number of protective measures we can take, which are referred to in this poem as ‘providential promises’.
    ‘Abomination’ is the climactic sign of desecration.

17

The Church in ‘Catatonica’ disarray
Has by contrast  the power to show what is
Exactly the Church Next – same as graced the era
Going before the travesty of the present.
Righting it nowadays will not meet with much success.
Emergency measures will only work so-so.
Average, lukewarm, ignorant, in fraudsters’ grip,
The Catatonics will shun a Latin gala.

  1. ‘Catatonica’ is a term of my coinage, derived from ‘catatonic’, used to describe those who are in a trance of ignorance about the errors already imposed on them or soon to be imposed by apostate leaders in the Church.  ‘Latin gala’ refers to the  somewhat growing spread of the Tridentine rite.

18

Those Tridentine-born, but New-Mass as adults, stray
Hardly ever,  if they had firm faith groundings
Early on.  But, turned off the Francisco-mania
Gripping pews solely Novus-Ordo, I now post
Resistance online comment-calls for measures
(Either ad-lib or campaigned-for) to be all-go
Again : old-style devotions; sermons with pep;
Try-out private-clubs; freelance priests (inter alia).

  1. The Tridentine Rite is the Latin liturgy that prevailed until Vatican II, after which a vernacular rite was invented called the ‘Novus Ordo’. Most Catholics today experience only the latter, but many now elderly experienced as youngsters not only the Tridentine rite but also extensive instruction in the authentic teachings of the Catholic Church, which many believe are not taught today to most Catholics.

19

The English had a penchant for the verse essay.
Here’s the point so far. The big or bit players
Execute moves not all know are on-camera
(Grand-denouement-doomed to grind to a halt).
Racing to ruin with who knows what survivors
(Excluding me?), the field, amid great ballyhoo
About the jumps (each saddled with some handicap)
Take to the last stage of this extravaganza.

20

The catacombs spur my ‘Catacombian’ ploy.
However my ‘Maquis-Underground’ updates
Entail no literal ‘down below’.  ‘Sub rosa’
Gravitates us more inclusively.  Precedent
Recalls priest-holes, ‘hedgerow’ liturgies, house chapels –
Emblematic of whole countries turned ‘no-go’,
As ‘seals-of -protection’ mine (if not gold stored up)
Tack Book-of-Truth tips on my ‘tabula rasa’.

  1. lines 5-6 refer to procedures from the past that were employed in times of persecution in England under the Tudors or in Ireland before Catholic Emancipation. 
    

21

The circle round ‘Maria Divine Mercy’
Has to watch its words.  It may have strategies
Excluded from the public, due to brouhaha
Granted prophecy (but net your ‘secret agent’).
Ready waiting:  ‘Antichrist’, ‘warning’, chastisements.
Events, persons such  – lag behind this verse promo.
Apocalyptic gloom precedes times to rev up
Three months of post/great-apostasy fiesta.

  1. The ‘three months’ is, according to the Book of Truth, how long the celebrations will last after the Second Coming.

Bible Reading

Isaiah 9: 1-6

1 The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light;

Upon those who lived in a land of gloom a light has shone.

2 You have brought them abundant joy and great rejoicing; They rejoice before you as people rejoice at harvest, as they exult when dividing the spoils.

3 For the yoke that burdened them, the pole on their shoulder, the rod of their taskmaster, you have smashed, as on the day of Midian.

4 For every boot that tramped in battle, every cloak rolled in blood, will be burned as fuel for fire.

5 For a child is born to us, a son is given to us; upon his shoulder dominion rests. They name him Wonder-Counselor, God-Hero, Father-Forever, Prince of Peace.

6 His dominion is vast and forever peaceful, upon David’s throne, and over his kingdom, which he confirms and sustains by judgment and justice, both now and forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this!

Readings from the Book of Truth

They will question and analyse My Word for fear of making a terrible error

26 October 2012 @ 11:06am

My dearly beloved daughter, so much work needs to be done by My followers to purge the earth of the infestation, which spreads, like a blanket, over many people who do not believe in God.

So many wander the world without any sense of direction. They are empty of spiritual feelings and are ignorant of the Love of God. They are the souls I yearn for, and for whom, I wish to embrace with the Truth.

You, My followers, must go to them and tell them that I, Jesus Christ, the Son of Man, The Messiah, will come soon. They must know that they will not be cast away, for it is because of you, of this generation, that I come at this time.

Many others, who are spiritually aware of the existence of God, will be curious, but hesitant, in accepting My Messages.

Others, who proclaim My Word, and who are devout Christians, will be wary and slow to embrace all that I say.

They will question and analyse My Word for fear of making a terrible error. They are fearful of being fed a lie.

Then there will be the clergy in Christian churches who will rise and respond to My Call. Some will respond quickly, for they will feel My Love surge through their veins when they read My Messages.

Others will feel an instant calling through My Gift of the Holy Spirit, contained in My Holy Word. Some will be more cautious than others, but, in time, their numbers will increase to millions.

This is why you, My followers, must persevere. While many will reject you, in My Name, in the beginning, this will change. When the Truth is widely known and welcomed, you will be sought out.My Word will be treated with love and respect, although by doing so, these souls will suffer.

It does not matter how much opposition there will be against Me, for My Mission will not fail.

Endure such opposition. Accept the abuse, which will be meted out to you, because of these Messages.

This is to be expected, when the Word of God is poured over the earth. Those in darkness will not accept My Word, as it will disrupt their lives.

It will make them re-evaluate their beliefs, which they will not want to have to face.

To accept My Word would mean they would have to change their ways. They, sadly, have no desire to change their ways, for it does not appeal to them.

I will not rest until I open their eyes to the Truth. Nor, do I expect you, My disciples, to stop until as many people as possible unite, as one, in the Eyes of God.

Your Jesus

 

Even those, who commit terrible sin, are loved by God the Father

20 April 2012 @ 3:45pm

My dearest beloved daughter, My children must be told of the intense Love that I hold in My Sacred Heart for every child born on this Earth.

Even those, who commit terrible sin, are loved by God the Father.

Each one of you is a child of God.

Because of this you are abused, tormented and hurt by Satan and his demons.

To those hardened sinners, members of Satan’s army, who know that God Exists, but who choose to idolise the beast, know this.

No matter how much homage you pay Satan, remember, he does not love you.

He hates you and will destroy you.

His promises to offer you a paradise, both on Earth and beyond, are empty lies.

Very soon you will be given proof of My Love for you. There will be no doubt in your heart that I, your beloved Jesus, want to embrace you, forgive you and bring you eternal peace, love, joy and happiness in My New Kingdom, the New Paradise.

Never be afraid to turn your back on the life you lead where you idolise all the perceived gifts of wealth, sex and other material comforts offered to you by Satan, whose reign on this Earth comes to an end shortly.

Only I, your beloved Jesus, can save you.

My Mercy is so Great that I will forgive you anything when you feel remorse. Hurry. Come to Me now.

Do not waste one second, for your future happiness is at stake.

I promise you Eternal Life, peace, love, joy and a beautiful Paradise where you will be loved, cherished and where you will want for nothing.

If you cannot accept My Hand of Mercy now, then when the time comes on the last day, you will be given one more chanceto ask Me for Mercy. When this Day comes, you will, many of you, realise the mistake you have made.

Yet, I will still embrace you, like a long lost and much loved child of God, no matter how much you have suffered by the hand of evil.

All you have to do will be to call out to Me and ask for My Mercy.

If you are involved, at this time, in a web of deceit and evil, from which you cannot escape, then I ask you to call on Me by reciting this:

Crusade Prayer (46) Free me from the chains of Satan

O Jesus, I am lost. I am confused and feel like a prisoner caught in a web I cannot escape from. I trust You, Jesus, to come to my aid and free me from the chains of Satan and his demons.

Help me, for I am lost. I need Your Love to give me the strength to believe in You and trust in You, so that I can be saved from this evil and be shown the Light so I can find peace, love and happiness at last. Amen

Your beloved Jesus

 

Thank you Jesus,for being with us today. Amen.
