Distinguishing between the de facto and the de jure in Church events.
Lightning struck attesting to the fulfillment of Daniel's prophesy!
This is the 'de facto' statement implied in Benedict's resignation against the conclave that elected him! So, from then on --on Benedict's testimony-- conclaves are invalid which means the cardinals aren't cardinals either --again by Benedict's testimony--, being incompetent to elect a pope!
THIS IS THE LAW, THIS IS THE FAITH.
Let's reason this out:A papal election has always been a major event, not only for Catholics, but for the entire evangelized world. However, never before had circumstances been more revealing. A papal resignation hadn't occurred in seven centuries; but more relevantly, previous resignations had been forced by imposing circumstances which left no alternative to the abdicator but to abdicate. Circumstances like banishment by imperial authorities, exile under persecution, all of them practically equivalent to a sede vacante; and only a previous case in which the incumbent had been forced to accept --by a non conclave in order to break a two year sede vacante impasse-- and thus could not be seriously expected to remain where neither his competence for the post nor his vocation could hold him. In this case, that of Pietro da Morrone in 1294 --to be later canonized as St. Celestine V-- it would mean a short reign of only 161 days.
But Benedict's resignation is an absolute scandal to all those who rightfully feel this has been another destructive maneuver directed towards devastating the papacy; a defacement, an additional desacralization of what many consider necessarily holy and demandingly above reproach.
After writing this blog for years, convinced beyond the slightest doubt that these revolutionaries have been Christ's enemies, the Antichrist in His Church, having the affront of a quitter taking the title of Pope Emeritus we behold an act to ridicule all conclaves: A man supposedly elected by the Holy Ghost quits disrespectfully to the Most High's Will, out of his now unabashedly unholy britches alone!
Because, you see, the reason popes do not resign but die in office is the firm belief that only the God that elected them into office can set the moment to end their reign; and always does so by bringing them to account in His Kingdom. By becoming Pope Emeritus, Ratzinger (or Benedict XVI if you like) quite simply declared it was not The Holy Ghost that elected him; that the cardinals that elected him, the whole conclave was fraudulent, composed by impostors. And I, as a Catholic, agree totally with him; reminding everyone that only two spirits fight in the spiritual realm: The Holy Ghost ever present in conclaves until John XXIII was elected, and the Devil thereafter to punish the Church with the Generalized Apostasy of Vatican Council II and its aftermath popes.
However, a limit was placed for order to return. And the time, according to prophesy, IS NOW!
Prophesy begins with Daniel establishing clearly the sides in conflict that obviously corresponds to the same sides of Genesis 3:15 "I will put enmities between thee and the woman, and thy seed and her seed: she shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel". Daniel puts the same combatants in as the kingdoms of the earth vs. the people of the saints. And the whole of this blog's many entries in both languages attest to the truth that the People of the Saints haven't yet made a Vatican appearance in a conclave since 1939 to elect pope Pius XII.
Sufficient information on the subject appears clearly in Scripture, which is fundamental; and also in great follow-up prophesies adding detail, with the detail agreeing outstandingly with actual circumstances. Let's analyze these very important contributions to Our Lord's eschatological discourse in Mat 24:
Eschatology refers to the end of times and its signals, and a successful analysis has already been presented concerning eagles not vultures in my previous post. Our Lord's remark on His Church has to follow, and there's no surprise in Our Lord's pointing out Daniel, as this book was the only apocalypse (Revelation) extant in times of Christ: "When therefore you shall see the abomination of desolation, which was spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place: he that readeth let him understand. . . " (Mat 24:15) These, His words in the Gospel place Daniel's book for fulfillment in New Testament times, in contradiction to many biblical footnotes which shun all punishment of the Church and thus prefer to see its entire fulfillment in Old Testament times.
The same religious reference to the Holy Place appears in Apocalipse (Rev 13:11): "And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth: and he had two horns, like a lamb: and he spoke as a dragon". The Lamb of God is Christ in Scripture. A true pope as vicar would merit the same description as one who stands in His place. But in this case he speaks like a dragon (the liar, the Devil, thus a false pope --or series of popes-- and a devil).
And in reference to this period of time granted to the "abomination of desolation" of Vatican II and its aftermath, Our Lord is clear on its devastating effects: For there shall be then great tribulation, such as hath not been from the beginning of the world until now, neither shall be. And unless those days had been shortened, no flesh should be saved: but for the sake of the elect those days shall be shortened. (Mat 24:21-22) Which agrees with Vatican II council and its aftermath.
THE LORD SPOKE HERE OF THE END OF AN ERA, AND IT
AGREES WITH DANIEL'S TIMES WHICH AGREE WITH THE PERIOD UP TO BENEDICTS RESIGNATION.
COULD DANIEL BE MORE UP TO DATE
And Daniel presents a very recognizable modern context. To wit: It's difficult to imagine a better description of our civilization as a destroyer of the planet's ecology than the one presented by Daniel's fourth beast. "After this I beheld in the vision of the night, and lo, a fourth beast, terrible and wonderful, and exceeding strong, it had great iron teeth, eating and breaking in pieces, and treading down the rest with his feet: and it was unlike to the other beasts which I had seen before it..." (Dan 7:7)
Or a better description of modern mass media arising to rule, capable of imposing on the legislative, judicial and executive powers of government; ruling on what is right and on what is wrong; deciding what is to be believed and who is to be elected than "the little horn" taking over this modern beast:
I considered the horns, and behold another little horn sprung out of the midst of them: and three of the first horns were plucked up at the presence thereof: and behold eyes like the eyes of a man were in this horn, and a mouth speaking great things. (Dan 7:8) Especially when we remember that powers in the Bible are pictured as horns, that its having eyes and a mouth to be awesome had to signify senses beyond human faces; referring to the supernatural as modern technology can mean to ancient times, eyes had to imply seeing and transmitting as corresponds to a power and a universal audience; and speaking equally to a giant audience. The little horn isn't constitutionally recognized to be on the same level as the legislative, judicial and executive powers of the nations despite its being way above them in influence. Its managers are not voted into power and can remain in the shadows, unaccountable to any outstanding body, and thus free to plan, plot, and execute unhindered. To attack by surprise and rule undetected while adoring and serving Mammon and no other. Prophesy is here more realistic and timely than our awareness of facts, such is the power it holds in reserve for our benefit.
"I beheld, and lo, that horn made war against the saints, and prevailed over them. " (Dan 7:21) Again we find fulfillment in our times. By the sole mention of abortion, evolution, homosexual and women's rights; the dominance of pornography, political and economic manipulation, etc., we are aware of how this power has prevailed against the saints (Christianity) and confirm the fulfillment of prophesy beyond a shadow of doubt.
"Till the ancient of days came and gave judgment to the saints of the most High, and the time came, and the saints obtained the kingdom. And thus he said: The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be greater than all the kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces." (Dan 7:22-23)
THE KEY TO OUR INTERPRETATION
But our interest will be centered now on a particular sentence of the following paragraph which follows thus on the little horn: "And he shall speak words against the High One, and shall crush the saints of the most High: and he shall think himself able to change times and laws, and they shall be delivered into his hand until a time, and times, and half a time". (Dan 7:25)
This same phrase appears in Chapter 12, always on the same topic, on the people of The Most High being dispossessed for that period before regaining their rights for ever: "And I heard the man that was clothed in linen, that stood upon the waters of the river, when he had lifted up his right hand, and his left hand to heaven, and had sworn by him that liveth for ever, that it should be unto a time, and times, and half a time. And when the scattering of the band of the holy people shall be accomplished, all these things shall be finished". (Dan 12:7)
Our Lord has only to mention Himself as the "Son of Man" to refer to Daniel, the one to prophetically give Him that title: " I beheld, therefore, in the vision of the night, and lo, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and he came even to the ancient of days: and they presented him before him. And he gave him power, and glory, and a kingdom: and all peoples, tribes, and tongues shall serve him: his power is an everlasting power that shall not be taken away: and his kingdom that shall not be destroyed. (Dan 7:13-14)
BENEDICT'S RESIGNATION MARKED DANIEL'S "HALF A TIME"
Popes don't resign from the papacy. They die as popes. "A time", distinguished from "times", is the necessary distinction between The Time of Revolution known as the Second Vatican Council and its two "popes": Angelo Roncalli (John XXIII), and Giovani B. Montini (Paul VI); and the Council's aftermath "popes": John Paul I (Albino Luciani), Karol Wojtila (John Paul II), and "Half a Time" Joseph Ratzinger (Benedict XVI). These five encompass the biblical Abomination of Desolation period, later described by Our Lady of La Salette (1846, made public in 1859) as "Rome will apostatize from the faith and become the See of the Antichrist. The Church will be in eclipse."
By taking Daniel's count as the norm for our current interpretation of facts, the end of Benedict's "half time" announces a drastic change. Such a change would necessarily mean the official rejection of the changes introduced since the beginning of the Second Vatican Council and the return to the Mass as the Continual Sacrifice with its proper liturgy. Paul VI changed The Sacrifice for the Lord's Supper which is a radically different concept imported from Protestantism and thus fulfilled Daniel's vision: "And I heard one of the saints speaking, and one saint said to another I know not to whom, that was speaking: How long shall be the vision, concerning the continual sacrifice, and the sin of the desolation that is made: and the sanctuary, and the strength be trodden under foot? And he said to him: Unto evening and morning two thousand three hundred days: and the sanctuary shall be cleansed. These four great beasts, are four kingdoms, which shall arise out of the earth". (Dan 8:13-14). This period of 2300 days of the Lord, counting therefore only Sundays, require a division by 52 in order to obtain the number of years. This gives us 44.23 years. Officialy the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass was suspended since November 15, 1969; and substituted by "The Lord's Supper". Adding 44.23 years, the period would take us to February of 2014. Very close to Benedict's half time. Is there any chance for Bergoglio (pope Francis) to be the short term counter-revolutionary? Miracles are exclusively God's Domain, and it would indeed be a miracle as there's nothing in Bergoglio's past history to even suggest the possibility. However, the conversion of the Jews --an even greater but expected miracle-- would carry the day Bergoglio as a real Francis I included!
The message of La Salette agrees fully with Daniel 8:12 "And strength was given him against the continual sacrifice, because of sins: and truth shall be cast down on the ground, and he shall do and shall prosper". Our Lady's words on the subject were: "Melanie, what I am going to tell you now will not always remain a secret; you may publish it in 1858.
"The priests, ministers of My Son, the priests, by their bad life, their irreverences and their impiety in celebrating the sacred mysteries, by love of money, love of honor and pleasures, the priests have become cesspools of impurity. Yes, priests are asking for vengeance, and vengeance is suspended over their heads. Woe to the priests, and to people consecrated to God, who, by their infidelities and their bad life, crucify My Son anew!
The sins of people consecrated to God cry out to Heaven and call for vengeance, and behold, vengeance is at their door, for no longer can anyone be found to implore mercy and pardon for the people; there are no more generous souls, there is no longer anyone worthy of offering the Spotless Victim to the Etemal in favor of the world.
"God is going to strike in an unprecedented manner. . ."
The way God struck was by putting humanity in the hands of the Devil and his servants. Revolutions, wars, world wars; automatic first and later nuclear weapons, together with political success for their being used would be concurrent with unprecedented natural disasters, and massive ecological destruction; new plagues like AIDS; crime taking over by unprecedented financial gains and power from drugs, pornography, with idiocy peddled as science; a "science" so unscientific as to privilege every form of destruction. A science so bigoted as to proclaim man only an animal, meaningless to morals and truth. The means for correction were long established: "In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, you being gathered together and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus: To deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. . ."
WHAT IS TO COME AFTER BENEDICT'S HALF TIME?
What we have on hand with "pope Francis" is a false start to fit with Our Lords prophesy in Hede, Germany, immediately after the Second World War: "Hell is now certain of its victory, but I will snatch it from its hands!" Therefore, the assuredness which now the revolutionaries' feel to be theirs and with their plan to finally bury the Church, and with Daniel's fourth beast to prevail, is just a sign, a prelude to their fright, to their insurmountable terror; as it now seems as impossible for the Church to rise from its devastation by them, the wolves in sheep's clothing, as it seemed impossible to the synagogue after the crucifixion for Christ to raise gloriously immortal from the dead.
Yet, Christ not only resurrected, but in doing so conquered the world through the Roman Empire and destroyed the Jews with the armies of Rome. Daniel's prophesy will not fail in the same way Christ's power to rise from the dead did not fail. The very name of Francis picked by Bergoglio to mock Christ's mandate to Saint Francis in Assisi: "Francis rebuild my Church" is, in the correct context, the continuation of the mockery celebrated by John Paul II in Assissi (St. Francis' town) in 1986; and revisited with the same intention by Benedict twenty five years later. Therefore, the fraudulent conclave is the continuation of these derisions in their hunger to ridicule Jesus Christ in His Church. Whichever the present world's actual feelings, the Victory of the Living Christ over the synagogue of Satan (Rev 2:9 and 3:9) is the only certainty history itself can offer after the Resurrection.
The words of St. Nicholas, the holy patron of the Swiss, who has also been one of the most outstanding saints of all times place us in the mood of what is now to be expected:“The Church will be punished, for the majority of its members, great and small, will become very perverted. The Church will sink deeper and deeper until it finally seems to have been destroyed, and the succession of Peter and the other Apostles will seem to have ended. But after that it will be triumphantly exalted in the sight of all doubters” St. Nicholas of Flüe (March 21st 1417-1487)
ARE THE DAYS OF DARKNESS IN AGREEMENT WITH DANIEL'S TIMES?
"After the three days of darkness, St. Peter and St. Paul, having come down from Heaven, will preach in the whole world and designate a new Pope. A great light will flash from their bodies and will settle upon the cardinal who is to become Pope. Christianity, then, will spread throughout the world. He is the Holy Pontiff, chosen by God to withstand the storm. At the end, he will have the gift of miracles, and his name shall be praised over the whole earth. Whole nations will come back to the Church and the face of the earth will be renewed. Russia, England, and China will come into the Church." -Prophecy of Blessed Anna Maria Taigi (1769-1837 A.D.) who was beatified by Pope Bendedict XV in 1920
IN A NUTSHELL:For the first time we have full, conclusive evidence, by admission of usurpatory intent by 'pope' Benedict XVI to declare conclaves invalid from 1958 onwards. All these conclaves have been giving the same rotten fruit of contempt for Christ and for His Church in their elected heads. In Daniel's words "Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down". (Daniel 8:11)
He was not magnified by the Holy Ghost, for if he had --and had he been a believer instead of a participant in a revolutionary force, he would not have resigned in order not to incurr in a sacriligious contempt against the Lord. But the unveliber magnified himself through his accomplices unto becoming the 'prince of the host'; The head of the army, den Fürsten des Heeres, hasta el jefe del ejército, ad principem fortitudinis magnificatus est, jusqu'au chef de l'armée. . . all Bibles, Catholic and Protestant, and in all languages convey the same message: The usurper, the goat that came flying over the face of the whole earth aggrandized itself to take over the papacy. The Word pope did not, could not exist in Daniel's time. Here, Daniel's modernity clarifies the issue again: "And I understood: and behold a he goat came from the west on the face of the whole earth, and he touched not the ground," (Dan 8:5) A flying conquering force that travels the whole earth without touching the ground is a 20th century air force; a force not of O.T. times but of a century that recognized the name pope for the head of the Church Militant, the prince of the Host that Christ sent to conquer the whole world in His Name alone.
The book of Daniel could not fill out the picture of our times, nor could it make full sense of it without making Saint John's Revelation a needless exercise. The basic theme of the Mass repeats itself as a leitmotiv in Daniel: "And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate". (Dan 9:27) . . . And when the scattering of the band of the holy people shall be accomplished, all these things shall be finished". (Dan 12:7) But mysteries remain, of course. We are not pretending a thorough clarification, least of all could we pretend any degree of infalibility in such grave matters. Therefore, leaving Revelation according to John to fill in the rest from a Biblical standpoint, we have added St. Nicholas and Blessed Ana Maria Taigi's prophesies for detail, as they agree with Our Lord God Jesus Christ's promise "And the doors of Hell shall not prevail against it". (Mat 16:18)
