It is not the sanctuary that is in danger; it is civilization.
It is not infallibility that may go down; it is personal rights.
It is not the Eucharist that may pass away; it is freedom of conscience.
It is not divine justice that may evaporate; it is the courts of human justice.
It is not that God may be driven from His throne;
it is that men may lose the meaning of home.
For peace on earth will come only to those who give glory to God!
It is not the Church that is in danger, it is the world!”
—Venerable Bishop Fulton J. Sheen

Continued from The Two Camps…
AT this late hour, it has become very apparent that a certain “prophetic fatigue” has set in and many are simply tuning out — at the most critical time.
In the heart of the night we can feel frightened and insecure, and we impatiently await the coming of the light of dawn. —POPE ST. JOHN PAUL II, Message of the Holy Father to the Youth of the World, XVII World Youth Day, n. 3; (cf. Is 21:11-12), vatican.va
We are indeed in the “heart of the night,” in the Vigil that precedes the Passion and Resurrection of the Church. We are living Our Gethsemane, including the sleepiness of even the most faithful disciples.
It’s our very sleepiness to the presence of God that renders us insensitive to evil: we don’t hear God because we don’t want to be disturbed, and so we remain indifferent to evil... ‘the sleepiness’ is ours, of those of us who do not want to see the full force of evil and do not want to enter into his Passion. —POPE BENEDICT XVI, Catholic News Agency, Vatican City, Apr 20, 2011, General Audience
Since the bridegroom was long delayed, they all became drowsy and fell asleep. (Matthew 25:5)
But Heaven is warning us with renewed urgency that many false messiahs and false prophets have arisen, and they will deceive “if that were possible, even the elect.” Matt 24:23 Evidence of this is in The Two Camps emerging. Like the Apostles of old, we may be tempted to say, “Surely it is not I” who would betray you Lord?!Mark 14:19 To which Jesus replies:
Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. (Mark 14:38)
For the secular messianists are now among us…
The Secular Messianists
The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in the place of God and his Messiah who has come in the flesh. —Catechism of the Catholic Church, n. 675-676
The Catechism goes on to condemn ‘especially the “intrinsically perverse” political form of a secular messianism.’ Canadian speaker and acclaimed author, Michael D. O’Brien, has been warning for decades of the kind of totalitarianism now rapidly unfolding:
Gazing about at the contemporary world, even our “democratic” world, could we not say that we are living in the midst of precisely this spirit of secular messianism? And is this spirit not manifested especially in its political form, which the Catechism calls in the strongest language, “intrinsically perverse”? How many people in our times now believe that the triumph of good over evil in the world will be achieved through social revolution or social evolution? How many have succumbed to the belief that man will save himself when sufficient knowledge and energy are applied to the human condition? I would suggest that this intrinsic perversity now dominates the entire Western world. —talk at St. Patrick’s basilica in Ottawa, Canada, September 20th, 2005
This is no more apparent than in the collective movement of Western leaders, suddenly and harmoniously, embracing the utopian ideology of the World Economic Forum (WEF), a partner of the United Nations orchestrating the Great Reset through “public-private cooperation.”weforum.org In case anyone thinks the WEF is small potatoes, they haven’t been paying attention:
And so this is a big moment. And the World Economic Forum… is going to have to really play a front and center role in defining “Reset” in a way that nobody misinterprets it: as just taking us back to where we were… —John Kerry, former United States Secretary of State; The Great Reset Podcast, “Redesigning Social Contracts in Crisis”, June 2020
…the fusion of our physical, our digital and our biological identities. —Chairman Prof. Klaus Schwab, World Economic Forum, The Rise of the Antichurch, 20:11 mark, rumble.com
How can we fail to see in this the spirit of Antichrist? That “lawless one”…
…who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god and object of worship, so as to seat himself in the temple of God, claiming that he is a god. (2 Thessalonians 2:4)
The WEF’s highly developed vision is essentially the philosophic end point of naturalism: the belief that everything arises from natural properties and causes, and supernatural or spiritual explanations are excluded. Indeed, “God is dead” declared Yuval Noah Harari, a top advisor to Klaus Schwab.youtube.com But there is another key mentor to Schwab — Freemason, Henry Kissinger who likewise declares that the world as we know it is over:Hear Schwab refer to Kissinger at 10:59 in “The New World Order: I Thought that Was Just a Conspiracy Theory?”
The reality is the world will never be the same after the coronavirus. To argue now about the past only makes it harder to do what has to be done… Addressing the necessities of the moment must ultimately be coupled with a global collaborative vision and program… The founding legend of modern government is a walled city protected by powerful rulers… Enlightenment thinkers reframed this concept, arguing that the purpose of the legitimate state is to provide for the fundamental needs of the people: security, order, economic well-being, and justice. Individuals cannot secure these things on their own… The world’s democracies need to defend and sustain their Enlightenment values… —The Washington Post, April 3rd, 2020
Those who understand history know exactly what Mr. Kissinger is referring to. As I noted in Woke vs Awake:
The Enlightenment was a comprehensive, well-organized, and brilliantly led movement to eliminate Christianity from modern society. It began with Deism as its religious creed, but eventually rejected all transcendent notions of God. It finally became a religion of “human progress” and the “Goddess of Reason.” —Fr. Frank Chacon and Jim Burnham, Beginning Apologetics Volume 4: How to Answer Atheists and New Agers, p.16
Its final iteration today is the Goddess of Science and Technology, which is really just the official religion of naturalism — only the high priests wear lab coats rather than vestments.
At this period, however, the partisans of evil seems to be combining together, and to be struggling with united vehemence, led on or assisted by that strongly organized and widespread association called the Freemasons. No longer making any secret of their purposes, they are now boldly rising up against God Himself …that which is their ultimate purpose forces itself into view — namely, the utter overthrow of that whole religious and political order of the world which the Christian teaching has produced, and the substitution of a new state of things in accordance with their ideas, of which the foundations and laws shall be drawn from mere naturalism. —POPE LEO XIII, Humanum Genus, Encyclical on Freemasonry, n.10, Apri 20th, 1884
And of course, the “Enlightenment values” found a certain climax in the expression of Communism, which the Freemasons developed.“Communism, which so many believed to be an invention of Marx, had been fully hatched in the mind of the Illuminists [enlightened] long before he was put on the payroll.” —Stephen Mahowald, She Shall Crush Thy Head, p. 101
The Death Knell of Freedom
While 20th-century Communism used brute force in an attempt to create an egalitarian society, jackboots are hardly necessary today. COVID-19 introduced the methods whereby entire populations can be manipulated through mass-media messaging, global lockdowns, “vaccine passports”, and most of all, fear. That was the First Act.
But one must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy. Obviously, the owners of coal and oil will not be enthusiastic about this. One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with environmental policy anymore… —Ottmar Edenhofer, International Panel on Climate Change for the Paris Agreement, dailysignal.com, November 19th, 2011
Thus, COVID-19 and Climate Change are the two pillars of the Great Reset and the pretext to control wealth and people,cf. Control! Control! turning them into “human capital as an asset.”cf. weforum.org This is only possible on a global scale through a centralized banking digital currency (CBDC) and the corralling of the world’s population into a Digital ID,cf. The Great Corralling what the WEF calls a “digital identity ecosystem.”weforum.org
On November 16th, 2022, leaders of the G20 nations signed a Declaration that is the death knell of freedom: an agreement to introduce vaccine passports and digital identities tied to international commerce and travel.
We acknowledge the importance of shared technical standards and verification methods, under the framework of the IHR (2005), to facilitate seamless international travel, interoperability, and recognizing digital solutions and non-digital solutions, including proof of vaccinations… — “G20 Bali Leaders Declaration”, Bali, Indonesia, November 15-16, 2022 whitehouse.gov
At the end of my documentary Following the Science?, scientists and doctors warned that such “proof of vaccination” was perhaps the gravest risk to medical and human freedom:
Just take it from me, you don’t need vaccine passports. They provide nothing whatsoever to you or anyone else in relations to safety. But it will give away, to whoever controls that database and the rules, complete control over everything you do. —Dr. Mike Yeadon, former VP of Pfizer, from Following the Science? 58:31 mark
If they ever come to be, then it’s goodnight to society, goodnight to science, goodnight to humanity. — Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, Ibid; 58:48
I can’t say it more forcefully enough, this is literally the end of human liberty in the West if this plan unfolds as planned. —Dr. Naomi Wolfe, Ibid; 59:04
At the recent World Government Summit, economist and former Presidential advisor Dr. Pippa Malgren flatly stated:
We are on the brink of a dramatic change where we are about to — and I’ll say this boldly — we are about to abandon the traditional system of money and accounting… And the new accounting is… digital. It means having an almost perfect record of every single transaction that happens in the economy, which will give us far greater clarity of what’s going on. It also raises huge dangers… — “Are We Ready for a New World Order?”, video from World Government Summit, youtube.com
Rober Kiyosaki, investment guru and author of the personal finance book “Rich Dad, Poor Dad,” warns:
It’s Communism in its purest form, the creation of CBDC “Central Bank Digital Currency.” Stay awake. —July 17, 2022; twitter.com
Indeed, Agustin Guillermo Carstens, General Manager of the Bank of International Settlements, was clear that the Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) will have the authority to determine who uses the currency, and the technology to determine who doesn’t.
The Central Bank will have absolute control on the rules and regulations that will determine the use of that expression of central banking ability, and also we’ll have the technology to enforce that. —cf. rumble.com
How? Through the collection of data on every single person in the world and, thus, one’s “social credit score”….
The Final Lockdown
…your merchants were the great men of the earth, all nations were led astray by your pharmakeia. (Rev 18:23 the Greek word for “medicines” or the practice of drugs)
The “great men of the earth” behind this global surveillance system are tied directly to the pharmaceutical industry. According to Aman Jabbi, a Stanford graduate and Silicon Valley expert in video and camera technology, several “philanthropists” including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation, are funding this “digital identity ecosystem.” In a fascinating and disturbing exposé on the existing technologies to surveil humanity, Jabbi warns that billions of cameras and devices “that are continuously watching” around the world are already collecting data on every one of us, most notably through facial recognition.
Once you start to understand what their final goals are, it’s all about 24/7 tracking of human beings. Human capital is kind of the essence of making money in the future along with nature. —Aman Jabbi, The David Knight Show, December 8th, 2022; 6:51, ivoox.com
Indeed, warned Pope Benedict XVI:
The Book of Revelation includes among the great sins of Babylon — the symbol of the world’s great irreligious cities — the fact that it trades with bodies and souls and treats them as commodities (cf. Rev 18:13).
So cameras and facial recognition are an integral part of the IOT (Internet of Things), which is then connected through “the cloud” to Artificial Intelligence algorithms. So your face essentially becomes your passport, or let’s say password to unlocking your Digital ID… to buy food, to login to your computer, send a text — everything will be based on your Digital ID. So essentially, it’s a digital prison that is being built where you have to have permission and credits and tokens for everything. —Aman Jabbi, The David Knight Show, December 8th, 2022; 7:06, ivoox.com
Jabbi states that “your carbon footprint is being scored as we speak — and who you’re with, and who you talk to, and who you communicate with, what sort of websites you visit, etc. Your “social score” is being computed in real-time as we speak, and this is happening in America and everywhere in the world.” In other words, he says, “They’re giving us all the carrots — and the sticks are coming. And when the sticks come, life isn’t going to be pleasant for anyone.” 10:30, ivoox.com
When people are saying, “Peace and security,” then sudden disaster comes upon them, like labor pains upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:3)
A smart city is a cute word for an invisible, open-air concentration camp… where they want to limit human movement and human activity… That’s the long-term goal. —Ibid; 11:16
It will be policed, he says, not by humans, but by artificial intelligence. By the end of 2022, Jabbi says there will be some 20 billion cameras and devices that can record and track people’s movements — from surveillance cameras to the smart devices we carry. Powerful artificial intelligence already exists that will be employed to monitor your movements, identify you through facial recognition, track and restrict exactly what you buy, and monitor how you exceed your carbon footprint limits or fail to meet your vaccine status. LED lighting that is popping up in cities is also weaponized, says Jabbi, and drones will be used to enforce the law.
Extended interview with Aman Jabbi… incredibly eye-opening:
Turning again to Revelation, St. John’s vision recounts that an image of the beast was created that had life “breathed” into it and that “the beast’s image could speak and [could] have anyone who did not worship it put to death.”Rev 13:15 Could this “image of the beast”, in fact, be artificial intelligence? Some claim that artificial intelligence (ie. software that “thinks” like a human) that can become sentient (ie. software that emotionally “feels” and perceives like a human) is now possible.scientificamerican.com A.I. will be employed to exclude and cut-off anyone who does not comply with Digital I.D.s and the “social contract”weforum.org — already happening in China.
What are you going to do, argue with the machine?… Once the machines can lock you out, you are in such trouble. And we’re speeding toward that with an immense lack of care. —Dr. Jordan Peterson, Sky News Australia, November youtube.com; watch that excerpt here
In Nigeria, for instance, cash withdrawals at ATMs have been limited to $45 a day “in order to encourage the use of Nigeria’s central bank digital currency (CBDC).”thegatewaypundit.com In this way, those who do not “worship” it — ie. surrender to the digital ecosystem — will be cut off from their digital money and literally deprived of the necessities of life (all “for the common good,” of course).
…anyone who did not worship it [was] put to death. Rev 13:15
Since the G20 has declared that Central Bank Digital Currency will be tied to your “proof of vaccination”, a new vista of understanding of the “mark of the beast” has emerged. It would be intellectually dishonest if not spiritually reckless at this point not to hear St. John’s words with new ears:
It forced all the people, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to be given a stamped image on their right hands or their foreheads, so that no one could buy or sell except one who had the stamped image of the beast’s name or the number that stood for its name. (Rev 13:16-17)
For the people overseeing nationwide vaccination initiatives in developing countries, keeping track of who had which vaccination and when can be a tough task. But researchers from MIT might have a solution: they’ve created an ink that can be safely embedded in the skin alongside the vaccine itself, and it’s only visible using a special smartphone camera app and filter. —Futurism, December 19th, 2019; cf. ucdavis.edu
Ironically, the invisible ink that may be used is called “Luciferase,” a bioluminescent chemical delivered through “quantum dots” that will leave an invisible “mark” of your immunization and record of information.statnews.com I’m not saying that this is the “mark”; but never has humanity been so dangerously close to a literal interpretation of this passage of Scripture.
So now the ability to carry out the ultimate goal of this diabolical plan — “namely, the utter overthrow of that whole religious order” — comes into view.POPE LEO XIII, Humanum Genus, Encyclical on Freemasonry, n.10, Apri 20th, 1884 This new “social contract”weforum.org that the WEF and their enforcers are imposing, and which will be intrinsically tied to your access to the digital ecosystem, is compliance with their “values.” These will include, for example, the universal “right” to reproductive health (a euphemism for abortion and contraception),unwomen.org; ohchr.org the acceptance of same-sex “marriage”,cf. manilatimes.net and it will be a “crime against humanity” to oppose resistance to LGBT lifestyles.cf. lifesitenews.com In other words, if you want to participate in society, much less eat, your acceptance of these values will be intrinsic. Such a “values test”, already implemented in Canada,cf. Justin the Just is the death knell of religious freedom.
Perhaps now we can see why St. John warned that those who opt for the false “peace and security” of the beast’s system and values — which is tantamount to apostasy — will lose their salvation:
The smoke of the fire that torments them will rise forever and ever, and there will be no relief day or night for those who worship the beast or its image or accept the mark of its name. (Revelation 14:11)
I’m sure many are shaken by what they’ve just read, wondering “What are we supposed to do?” Perhaps you are repeating the words:
Who can compare with the beast or who can fight against it? (Revelation 13:4)
More on that in the next reflection…
