Sunday 9 January 2022

A couple of days ago Kea and I spent the night listening to music. We went back to songs we sang as teenagers, and in the process I found a couple of live albumns. We used to have music bands, worship bands, filling large stadiums. My church usef to full moderate auditoriums. And I thought that this will not be allowed again. The very things that were normal in 2019 within the church are now historical . We have, been forced, if you will, into exile. The church should be open, but the authorities have shut the door, and the only way that one can hire a venue is to agree to use the vaxx pass, and cast out those who will not roll up their sleeve at the command of the state.

It is causing division. But Christ always does. You can choose to be on the side od Christ, or the side of the world. People we used to have as friends, people whowe considered had discernment, have failed at this test. We do not judge them: we judge instead those who made the systems, with deliberation, that require one bow to Molechm, Astarte and Tane Mahuta, so one can be part of this new hell, this damned society.

Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia of the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy for Life, a prelate infamous for the homo-erotic mural he commissioned for his cathedral in 2007, is speciously claiming that to end the Wuflu scamdemic, children must have the Jab.And the pope’s scandal-ridden Bambino Gesù Children’s Hospital is vigorously promoting COVID-19 shots for kids — falsely claiming the vaccines are necessary, safe and effective, despite a red alert by over 16,000 scientists and doctors warning against the jabs

The Holy See authorized the use of the injection for minors from the age of 5 after weighing “the high value of the benefits compared to the risks.”

Canto Fermo

This is a scandal. Children should be protected from harm, and Julia du Fresne goes on to explain there is no benefit for children but some risk. The prelate does not care. He loves the world, and the very baptism of Christ, the incarnation are not to be considered, or the death of Christ, or his resurrection. h ebeleives he is like God, but better. As such, he worships something syncretic and strange.

We have never been called to do that.

Collect

Eternal Father,who at the baptism of Jesus revealed him to be your Son, anointing him with the Holy Spirit: grant to us, who are born again by water and the Spirit, that we may be faithful to our calling as your adopted children; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

Zechariah 4:1-14

1 Then the angel who was speaking with me returned and roused me, as a man who is awakened from his sleep. 2 He said to me, “What do you see?” And I said, “I see, and behold, a lampstand all of gold with its bowl on the top of it, and its seven lamps on it with seven spouts belonging to each of the lamps which are on the top of it; 3also two olive trees by it, one on the right side of the bowl and the other on its left side.” 4 Then I said to the angel who was speaking with me saying, “What are these, my lord?” 5 So the angel who was speaking with me answered and said to me, “Do you not know what these are?” And I said, “No, my lord.” 6 Then he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel saying, ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts. 7 ‘What are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become a plain; and he will bring forth the top stone with shouts of “Grace, grace to it!” ’ ” 8 Also the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 9 “The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house, and his hands will finish it. Then you will know that the Lord of hosts has sent me to you.

10 For who has despised the day of small things? But these seven will be glad when they see the plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel—these are the eyes of the Lord which range to and fro throughout the earth.” 11 Then I said to him, “What are these two olive trees on the right of the lampstand and on its left?” 12 And I answered the second time and said to him, “What are the two olive branches which are beside the two golden pipes, which empty the golden oil from themselves?” 13 So he answered me, saying, “Do you not know what these are?” And I said, “No, my lord.” 14 Then he said, “These are the two anointed ones who are standing by the Lord of the whole earth.”

NASB

Matthew 25:1-13

1 “Then the kingdom of heaven will be comparable to ten virgins, who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2 Five of them were foolish, and five were prudent. 3 For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them, 4 but the prudent took oil in flasks along with their lamps. 5 Now while the bridegroom was delaying, they all got drowsy and began to sleep. 6 But at midnight there was a shout, ‘Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’ 7 Then all those virgins rose and trimmed their lamps. 8 The foolish said to the prudent, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ 9 But the prudent answered, ‘No, there will not be enough for us and you too; go instead to the dealers and buy some for yourselves.’ 10 And while they were going away to make the purchase, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast; and the door was shut. 11 Later the other virgins also came, saying, ‘Lord, lord, open up for us.’ 12 But he answered, ‘Truly I say to you, I do not know you.’ 13 Be on the alert then, for you do not know the day nor the hour.

NASB

The pattern I am seeing is that the model of the megachurch and churchian wannabe –accessible music, seeker friendly services, a soft approach to sin are being stopped by regulation. We can no longer be big. We must be small, hidden, hidden even, like carp in a rice field. (Yes, I know Mao said that first). The world thinks it has won, but what has happened instead is that the believers are more fervent, while the damned are equally zealous. You don;t want to be on the side of the damned. THey don’t have cookies and they have no tolerance, or forgiveness, at all.

So one thing the Leftist Totalitarian Establishment are absolutely 100 percent correct about is that this is a divided world. This is a major (perhaps The major) fact of these times.  And the Establishment are also correct to demonize one of the sides of this division; because one of the sides is quite literally in service to actual demons.  And the division is widening, with no grey area between the sides; exactly because evil is feeding-off itself and becoming more evil. 

So the Globalist Leftist Establishment are quite correct in their formal characterization of the situation in the world today – they are right to demonize one of the sides; and the ‘only’ big thing they get wrong is which side is which: which side is Good, and which side is demonic! 

nd the only people who are completely wrong are ‘moderate’, decent, sensible folk who deny the reality of value division, deny the separation of Good and evil sides; and who preach for de-escalation of rhetoric, polite manners, compromise and reconciliation!

We do noeed to be alert. We need to keep our eyes and ears open. We need to be prepare for the bad times. We don;t know when Christ will come, or when this woke cultural revolution will stop shredding any functional institution. But we know that we have to watch and be awake.

Even though we crave sleep, because the stpid hurts.
