The elte think they are on the victory lap. Melbourne is moving into its 4th covid (birdflu) lockdown, and trevel is stopped between Citoria and … basically anywhere. This is useful for me. I don’tlike VIctoria, and I much perfer to do everything I can by zoom rather than put on a mask and treavel to a country which is less frree than our socialist state of Aoteoroa, which replaced the free dominion of New Zealand some thime during the current government.
I need to remind myself that the kingdom of God is not of this world. That this would has nations in it, noone perfect, which ee belong to in the flesh. It is only iby the greace of the Holy Spirit, the hurchinvisible, that we have unity.
2 The word which Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.
2 Now it will come about that
In the last days
The mountain of the house of the Lord
Will be established as the chief of the mountains,
And will be raised above the hills;
And all the nations will stream to it.
3 And many peoples will come and say,
“Come, let’s go up to the mountain of the Lord,
To the house of the God of Jacob;
So that He may teach us about His ways,
And that we may walk in His paths.”
For the law will go out from Zion
And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
4 And He will judge between the nations,
And will mediate for many peoples;
And they will beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning knives.
Nation will not lift up a sword against nation,
And never again will they learn war.
5 Come, house of Jacob, and let’s walk in the light of the Lord.
9 However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him. 10 If Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness. 11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
I said that the leaders consider they are on a victory lap. True. But that is a delusion they have. The true church is united not by theology or liturgy but by the holy spirit. And there is a winnowing, a separation. Our brother from the Sedevacantist Latin Church notes that in this separation the extreme apostasy of the bishops, moderators, and members of theological colleges has a utility. He is more charitable than I am. My prayer for them is that they repent: to their policies I am completely opposed.
A formal ban of the old rite by the present imposter to the Papal throne will only serve to fully legitimize those churches currently celebrating it. The Catholic Church is in a crisis of its own purposeful making. That is, this crisis was deliberately set in play by elements inside the Church who wished to subvert and destroy it. We know that the roots of those saboteurs are Freemasonic and that their crowning glory was Vatican II which did away with the old rite but did not formally prohibit it. Now they wish to openly ban it as the next step on their path of destruction.
I see this as a positive step for us as I do not believe that the Church as it is can be saved by those inside it. It is too far gone, and its people are all suspect. This includes individuals such as Archbishop Viganò who although he appears to be fighting the good fight is still manifestly suspect because of his roots. You do not get to such a position without having taken the ticket, and as such, Viganò is controlled opposition.
No, if the Catholic Church is to return to its true position and former glory then it will only be accomplished by those priests who are truly of the Church. The legitimization of their present battle through the prohibition of their beloved old rite will only serve to drive more Catholics to them, widening their own power base while weakening that of the modern Church. And in the process more souls are saved. This perhaps is the most important aspect as we must always keep firmly in mind that we are not of this world.
God works in mysterious ways and perhaps I might venture a humble observation that perhaps this is what is intended in order to gain that outcome of saved souls. If that is indeed the case then the pope is not our enemy at all but in fact our greatest ally. That this is not his intention or belief is irrelevant. After all, we are instructed to love our enemies.
The elite are doing a victory lap. Their hypocrisy is obvious: locking down a country because of virus with a low mortality but at the same time increasing access to euthanasia for the elderly. But it is quite premature. For underneath all this false outrage and virtue signalling, God is winnowing his church. There is now a fuctional unity between the faithful from the four strands of Christendom, driven by their horror and contempt of their leaders, who have the spines of jellyfish.
But we are called to come out of the Churchian Babylon. The Churchians are concerned with the things of the flesh and the world. Christ never said that his kingdom was like that.
