AWAKENED? RED-PILLED YET?
Many people speak of being “woke”, “awake”, or “red-pilled” today; because they have begun to recognize the “matrix” or the “brainwashing” scheme of the evil one and his minions, who have sought to control and manipulate humanity as puppets on a string.
The enemy camp has set out a pot of nice warm water for us to relax in. In other words, they have catered to us and our whims and desires for fun, enjoyment and pleasures of all kinds by way of movies, television shows, sports entertainment, radio programs, internet access, concerts, music …; not in any way to say acting, singing, sports or the various mediums of communication are in themselves propagating bad; because, as we know, some are using it for the glory of God, and to foster His Kingdom on earth.
But, the “red-pilled” reality is that we have all been affected and formed, to some degree or other, by the dark side, without even realizing it. Because, as we know, “Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light ” (2Cor11:14) to seduce and deceive us. He is so sly in subtly planting his seeds of false ideologies and principles into us, that now the seeds have sprouted up everywhere; and are seeking to take over… by fruiting even more seeds of deception regarding who we are really created to be as “children of God.” As the sly serpent once said to Adam and Eve, through the ages he has been saying to us: “You will be like God” (Gen 3:5)…. And, most of humanity has listened, giving in to his luring ways.
BITING INTO AN APPLE OF DISOBEDIENCE
What is the “apple” of the day for us, that we are biting into? … One might immediately think of “Apple” technology; hmmm … but that would be for one to research and discern apart from this sharing (unless it is their personal apple of disobedience)…. The question I ask calls for a much broader response of answers. Because it is a question we can each take into prayer, and ask God to enlighten us in where we are being deceived into acting out of our own will apart from His Divine Will (as Adam and Eve did).
Just as with Adam and Eve, the apple itself was not the primary problem, nor the tree, nor the serpent (though Eve blamed the serpent); because God allowed all three to be there. The primary issue was that they disobeyed God’s will.
LIVING THE FIRST COMMANDMENT?
The majority of people today are not living the First Commandment: “You shall have no other gods before Me” (Ex 20:3).
“Other gods,” is not only referring to worshiping a “golden calf” or a statue of stone. “Other gods” is ANYTHING in our hearts and lives that comes before our Triune God and His Divine Will. So this means for each of us there will be different “gods” that we will have before “Him.” Some examples are: self, another person, sex, drugs, alcohol, food, family, work, entertainment, etc.
And most people are so “dumbed down” by the deceptive formation, that they don’t realize they have other gods before Him. Jesus tells us in Revelation, “Be ye hot or cold. Be ye lukewarm and I will vomit you out of my mouth.” These are pretty strong words which should awaken any fence-straddlers out there to choose a side. “If baal is your god, serve him, but if God, serve Him…”
It is time for humanity to become more conscious about how we are living… what are we allowing ourselves to be formed in? What television, movies, internet videos, music, books, magazines, newspapers, friends, aquaintances…?
A big question for us: Do we know what propaganda is? And are we aware of how it is being used to brain-wash, dumb-down, make into puppets anyone who does not have the mind and heart of Christ, who is “the way, the truth and the life” (Jn 14:6)
WITH CUNNING AND PROPAGANDA
Revelation 13 speaks of the Black Beast like a leopard and the Beast like a lamb as servants of the huge red dragon. The Black Beast comes in the shadow, and works everywhere with cunning and propaganda. The Beast like a lamb works in unison, by infiltrating the Church with this deception to bring it down.
According to Wikipedia, propaganda is: “Information that is not objective and is used primarily to influence an audience and further an agenda, often by presenting facts selectively to encourage a particular synthesis or perception, or using loaded language to produce an emotional rather than a rational response to the information that is presented. Propaganda is often associated with material prepared by governments, by activist groups, companies, religious organizations and the media can also produce propaganda.
In the twentieth century, the term propaganda had often been associated with a manipulative approach, but propaganda historically was a neutral descriptive term.
A wide range of materials and media are used for conveying propaganda messages, which changed as new technologies were invented, including paintings, cartoons, posters, pamphlets, films, radio shows, TV shows, and websites. More recently, the digital age has given rise to new ways of disseminating propaganda, for example, through the use of bots and algorithms to create computational propaganda and spread fake or biased news using social media.”
TRUTH VS LIES
No one, no one will have the wisdom and knowledge to recognize what is truth vs. lies and deception on their own, without the Spirit of Christ. One blatant example is the fact that many today have been deceived into believing that truth is relative, given a situation, rather than absolute. But the truth is, that truth is absolute.
Many believe they have a relationship with God outside of Jesus. And, yes, they may be getting bits and pieces of knowledge of who God is, but they are also receiving much deception about who He is. As Jesus tells us: “no one can come to the Father except through me.”
Another major deception is that there is no hell, or devil or demons. This is a clear indication that one has been deceived by the evil one. Adam and Eve were deceived by the evil one. They didn’t realize it was the devil deceiving them. And, neither will we recognize if it is the devil deceiving us, unless we are seeking to live God’s commandments and Will.
God told Adam and Eve clearly not to eat the fruit from the one tree. And, when the evil one tried to lure them to disobey God, they began rationalizing, and wondering what could be so bad about that, etc…
How many are rationalizing today? We hear the “serpent” and his followers of our time say, “God didn’t really tell you not to eat the fruit” – ie. to disobey his commandments and laws. Have we heard that lie before? Do we hear it throughout many secular movies we watch, music we listen to, news sources that aren’t genuine, etc… But the truth is, most people don’t pick up the subtle deception; which is actually not so subtle any more.
I confirm this with my own experience as a consecrated religious set apart from the world. If I need to be somewhere where secular shows are on, or the like, I am in great dismay about how far away humanity has drifted from the pure and holy. My conscience is very sensitive because I am being formed in the holy word of God, an ever deeper relationship with Him and awareness of His Divine Will. Whereas, most people do not have a daily prayer life (aside from the faithful remnant, and those who are earnestly striving to know God). Most are not spending heart to heart time with God daily, and seeking to be formed in His Divine Will and way of life. And, so, by default, the camp of darkness and deception has been the formator: in the spirit of the World, the flesh and the devil.
And, by default, this is their choosing… yes, they are choosing the “broad way that leads to destruction” and eventually “boiling hot” hell; rather than the “narrow way” of the Cross of Christ which leads to a life in Heaven with God for all eternity.
WAKE UP HUMANITY, OUR DAYS ARE NUMBERED
What I would want to say right now is, WAKE UP HUMANITY… and smell the rotten waste in which you are living. OUR DAYS ARE NUMBERED. Do we remember the times of Noah? Why was it only his family and the animals who were protected in the ark, and all the rest went under in the flood? Because he chose to listen to God and His commands. And, obviously others didn’t.
Let us remember as well Lot and his family (Gen. 19). They were the only ones that escaped the devastating fire of Sodom and Gomorrah; and why? Because they chose God and His commands (except for Lot’s wife who then looked back).
Obviously, as in these two situations God is not joking… He’s not a pushover… and His justice has come for them, and it will come for us as well; unless we respond like the people of Nineveh and repent and surrender our lives to God.
CHURCH INFILTRATED WITH MATRIX AGENDA
The question I ask us now… where are our hearts? Are we sincerely seeking to live for God and His Will each day? Or our own?
May we not let the putrid rot of lies, abuse, power, wealth, and all forms of sin which have infiltrated the Church, turn us away from God, His Church, and the Sacramental Life, which He established to nourish and form us.
Many have left or become disillusioned and half-hearted in the faith. And as well, many of those who claim to be awakened to the evil agenda of our times, are being deceived to think that the Catholic Church, capital “C”, is part of the evil plot. When in fact, it is those who have infiltrated the Church, as wolves in sheeps’ clothing, who are part of the coup seeking to destroy Mother Church from within.
So, for those who say they have been red-pilled, and yet are attacking the One, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic Church established by Christ, I say, do more research, to recognize that the deceiver has deceived you as well; because His ultimate plan is to take down the “Woman with Child.”
ARK OF THE NEW COVENANT
For, the final goal of the “huge red dragon’s” deception throughout the ages has been to take down the “Woman with Child” (the Church and Mary)… He has sought to “vomit out a torrent of water to wash the woman away” (Rev.12); and he seems to have succeeded. Yet, in hiddenness, in humility, in littleness, in silence, in great suffering, and in “the desert,” a new “Ark” has been built for anyone who wants to enter…
But the key to entering the “Ark” is to be “dressed” for the banquet by striving to live a life in God, formed by Him, as He created us to be. And, this “Ark” we have been told about throughout scripture:
God says to the serpent: “I will put enmity between you and the woman, your offspring and hers” (Gen 3:15); Queen Esther goes before the king and saves God’s people from wicked Haman (Ester 5-7) (a prefiguring of Mary’s role with satan; Jesus tells us at the foot of the cross: “Behold your Mother” (Jn 19:27); and St. John the Beloved Disciple tells us: “and the ark of His covenant appeared in His temple… A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars;2 and she was with child …”(Rev. 11:19, 12:1); to name a few.
The “Ark” is Holy Mother Mary who is one with Holy Mother Church. As St. Francis says, Mary is “the Virgin Made Church.”
And, so, God has been warning us in our times, which are similar to the times of Noah’s ark (Genesis 8:13-17), that we must now enter the Ark of the New Covenant in order to be saved from the wiles, deception and ultimate destruction of the evil one. A most significant warning has come to us through the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima whose primary message was that we consecrate ourselves to her Immaculate Heart.
“[Jesus] wishes to establish devotion to my Immaculate Heart in the world. I promise salvation to those who embrace it” (Mary to Sr. Lucia, Fatima).
Her Heart is the new Ark into which we must enter and stay… and this happens only if we receive the gift Jesus gave us at the foot of the Cross and allow Mary to be our Spiritual Mother, to teach us to live a holy and pure life in the womb of Mother Church. Because this is what the Womb of Mary’s Heart is, a formation in the life of God. Just as Jesus was formed in Mary’s womb for nine months, and then afterwards in his early years; we are called to be formed in the “school of Mary” as St. John Paul II speaks.
So I say to all, “ALL ABOARD!” the time is fast approaching when it will be too late… For the pot is heating up fast and nearing boiling point. And, if we don’t recognize it now, and jump out of the pot and into the “Ark,” soon it will be too late, and for ol’ slew-foot it will be dinner time (cf. 1Pet 5:8).
