Atheism is more than wrong.

Why Atheists are more than wrong.

We who believe, and who know, readily say that atheists are wrong. And we of course want them to be on the path of salvation; on unto eternity. Growing in grace; that which brings understanding. And all in the ways of the Lord.

But what also needs to be acknowledged is that atheism is no ordinary wrong. The harm to a human atheist themselves, and to all those who have been influenced into those ways, is incalculable. This because their wrong concerns not a debating argument, nor merely one more “clash of rights” it is far more than this; for their wrong concerns eternity, and how and where it is spent, and with whom!! And atheism concerns a denial of Truth; divine, witnessed, profound, factual “TRUTH” and all that accords with man (man and woman's) core identity.

All humans must keep well away from atheism, and those who are involved in it move away from it as soon as possible; with urgency. And this with repentance and with a firm purpose of amendment. The direction you go in is the direction you go further along; and so always be cautious and try to be on the right path in all things. Step well back from atheism!

The great dangers of our era are made far worse for humans through lack of instruction in the Faith; in all things of the Eternal. It is the Eternal that should be our great concern and with this the understanding that this is a very short sojourn upon God's earth, but which determines a great deal for when we die. At death we go to judgement.

It is God's earth; He created it. He who is the supreme and awesome majesty. We are honoured to be His creatures. His glory and splendour is all around.

Mankind's fallen predicament (we are fallen beings.)

God made man; the soul (soul and body) immortal. When Adam and Eve fell in the garden of Eden at the prompting of Lucifer; the devil “the serpent” the whole of mankind fell with them, and which meant death, and with it, an automatic descent into hell; the abode of the devil and his demons.

But God, in His great Mercy and love for mankind, and in the way of a good Father caring for His children, set in place a plan of salvation; the way for mankind.

This meant meeting mankind in our contemptible fallen state, choosing a people to reveal Himself through; making things understandable to them, and for them to write it down (The Bible.) And to nurture and cajole, to forgive, to chastise, and to sanctify; never casting them of, always preparing them; always bringing them back along the course of His loving plan, and all culminating “in the fullness of time” with the birth of our Saviour; Our Lord Jesus Christ. And all of which was good of Him, who has no need of us whatsoever. All glory and honour is due to Him at all times. He who is our one and last end, and upon Whom all depends. The first commandment is our great guide. And rightly do the words of the preface of the Feast of the Epiphany say:

------

It is truly meet and just, right and for our salvation, that we should at all times, and in all places, give thanks unto Thee, O holy Lord, Father almighty, everlasting God; for when Thine only – begotten Son was manifested in the substance of our mortal flesh, with the new light of His own immortality He restored us....

-------

Our Lord God and Saviour gave ample proof of His divinity, and of His purpose in coming amongst us; wondrous miracles; from curing the blind, the lepers, the deaf and mute [Matt 9:1-12,lk 17;11-19,Mk 7:31-37] to feeding the five thousand [Matt 14:13-21] all witnessed. Thousands followed Him daily; all that He did took place in time. His life and works on earth an historical fact and reality. His Transfiguration, standing alongside Him Moses and Elias(Elijah) witnessed (Matt 17:1-8, Mk 9:2-8 Lk 9:28-36.) His raising Lazarus from the dead [Jn 11:38-48] witnessed by numerous. His agony in the garden of Gethsemane; where He did sweat Blood for us in anticipation of His suffering ahead in paying for us the price of every sin [Lk 22:44.] witnessed. His own resurrection from the dead witnessed by numerous; there for all to see.[Matt 28, Mark 16, Luke 24,John 20&21]

Those who deny that which took place, are denying historical facts, and they are denying much indeed. Our Lord; our Saviour, came to prevent a man and a woman's automatic descent into hell upon death. All Our Lord God did for us fits with that foretold in scripture. Our Lord God, Jesus Christ; God the Son, who dwells in glory, humbled Himself to partake of our humanity; making Himself "the Son of Man" for our sakes. He gave commands; freed us from the slavery of sin; restoring the life of grace, and giving us the means by which to be joined with Him in His glorious resurrection from the dead.

And humans should never mistake how serious this is. He warned us about hell on numerous occasions, for example:[Lk12.5] [Lk16:19] [Mt5:22] [Mt5:29-30] [Mt7:13][Mt13:41-42][Mt25:41][Mt25:46] [Mt13:50] [Mk9:42-48.] It is a place where, at all and every cost, humans Must Not Go! For there, human souls (soul and body) are abased, and in horrifying ways. The harrowing cries of those descending into hell after death from this life, are real cries.

It is all too easily overlooked by those who take it upon themselves to deny the Truth of the Bible, that the fundamental basis of All Christian belief, is that our Lord God our Saviour, saved us from an automatic descent into hell upon death. And that we must be joined with Him in His glorious resurrection from the dead.
Our Lord set in place one Church for all to be within; founded by Our Lord on St Peter. It is important to point out that Our Lord set in place one Church; His Church, to be universal (Catholic.) His Words to His apostle Simon, whom He named “Peter” “Rock” (Peter means rock) being:

---------

And I say to thee, thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven."[Mt 16:18-19]

---------

That one Church; founded by Our Lord; by His Word to the one who heard His words; Simon named “Peter” “Rock.” That Church can be, and is, The Roman Catholic Church.

Modern Society.

Modern society should consist in true values. True values pertain to a joyful life, in Christ, free from the slavery of sin, free from the liberty of error, and focused on the goal of salvation. Eternal Wisdom is to be strived for always.

Man does not change in the context of what he needs; he may 'advance' in the sense that he can read scripture by way of electric light, rather than candle light, and drive to Church by car rather than by horse and carriage. But these, and such 'advancements' are very different to what His inherent needs are as pertaining to His Creator; and how man must live to accord with Him; whose destiny for man He set out as shown in the Old Testament and in the New Testament and with all the Eternal Wisdom and commands; Gods commands, contained therein. And God's Rights come first and foremost; His Divine Revelation; and to live in accordance with it.

Our Lord told us:

---------

It is written in the prophets,' And they all shalt be taught of God, 'Everyone who has listened to the Father, and has learned, comes to me;(Jn 6:45.)

----------

And in a very significant part of The Apocalypse(Apoc ch 15..) St John writes of “The song of Moses.” The Song of Moses is in Deuteronomy (Deut 32:1-43.) It is very wise to know it! As with the Bible itself.

God is Merciful and He is True. One forgets to fear God at one's peril.

All education should be first and foremost, and predominantely, in the Bible and in the true (traditional) teachings of the Catholic Faith. The Church privileged to access the great Eternal Truths in the ways revealed to us, at source, in Apostolic times; under the guidance of God The Holy Spirit, and which informed the grace filled structuring of the Church; Her great sacramental and devotional structuring and ways: The Sacramental economy! Grace is given in great measure to the humble. In the Book of Ecclesiaticus is as follows:

--------

Humble yourself the more, the greater you are, and you will find favor with God. For great is the power of God, by the humble he is glorified. (Ecc 3:18-19.)

--------

Reading the lives of the saints is a good way of gaining a good understanding of very important elements of the Faith.

Indifferentism and the 'Enlightenment.'

In contrast, Indifferentism's monster; the 'enlightenment' (so called) has bred more and more indifferentism towards matters of the Eternal and our contextual concerns unto it. Man as though now 'overlording' all to pick and choose according to cultural and personal likes, dislikes and whims, and then make a selective study of it! And along with this increasingly placing the rights of man first before the Rights of God and all as though forgetting the Eternal Wisdom, and God's revelation to us! And all of which does not sit well with God's Justice.

It has been great folly of mankind to try to 'advance' in any way separate to God when all advancement should pertain unto His greater glory.

And so the final chastisement is upon mankind; told of in the Apocalypse and warned of in the 1846 Secret of La Salette, which warned that Lucifer and a great number of demons would be released from hell in 1864. And, as foretold in the Apocalypse:

--------

Secret of La Salette 11 and 12 are:

"In the year 1864, Lucifer with a great number of demons will be unleashed from hell; they will abolish the faith little by little and even in persons consecrated to God; they will blind them in such a way that barring a particular grace these persons will take on the spirit of these bad angels: several religious houses will lose the faith entirely and will lose many souls.. "[Secret:(11)]

The dead and the just will be made to revive [Secret:12]
[That is to say that these dead will take the appearance of just souls who had lived on earth, in order to lead men further astray: these so-called resurrected dead, who will be nothing other than the demon under these appearances, will preach another Gospel contrary to the one of the true Christ Jesus, denying the existence of heaven, or they may also be the souls of the damned. All these souls will appear as if united to their bodies.]

These words [in brackets] are stated by Melanie Calvert (the recipient of the apparition) to have been "according to the Vision which I had in the moment that the very Blessed Virgin was speaking of the resurrection of the dead.' (Le Secret De Melanie, p.29-30.)..The dead and the just will be made to revive [Secret:12]

----------

The Secret of La Salette corresponds with the release of “the Locusts” as shown in The Apocalypse; and which follows on from the fourth; the final horse and horseman of the Apocalypse: Chapter nine begins with:

--------

And the fifth angel sounded the trumpet, and I saw that a star had fallen from heaven upon the earth, and there was given to him the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit, and there came up smoke out of the pit like the smoke of a great furness, and the sun and the air were darkened by the smoke of the pit. And out of the smoke there came forth locusts upon the earth..(Apoc. 9:1-3.)

---------

Just as the fallen star must be an individual; ie a living intelligent being (to have been given the key to open the bottomless pit with) so too the locusts are those whom live in the Abyss (to be released from) and from out of which they come. Locusts (the creature/insect) do not, as such, live in the Abyss, demons do (as do imprisoned human souls.) Locusts are a descriptive term. Just as 'serpent' or 'snake' is the descriptive term used for Lucifer; the devil, in the garden of Eden. “Locusts upon the earth” means the demons in incarnate; human form. And voluminous. And swarming.

This last era is the era of the apostate angels (incarnate demons) existing amidst mankind in vast numbers. The apostate angels at all times want to entice humans into following them in their rebellion against God, and lead souls into their own abode; and which is hell, where they reign and reside.

Note that the apostate angels exist in vast numbers in all institutions, and on all levels of society. The final “flood” upon mankind; the final chastisement, is a severe one.

And this is the reality of the very last era of mankind; and of the world as we know it.

Humans think very carefully, and live unto salvation. This is a very short sojourn upon God's earth. Paths should be made straight in the ways of the Lord. True joy is not found in momentary amusements and the slavery of sin. True joy is found in focussing on the Eternal unto our true treasure and true joy. Our Lord's precious Words:

---------

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where rust and moth consume,....but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither rust nor moth consume, nor theives break in and steal. (Matt.6:19-20.)

“For what does it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, but suffer the loss of his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?[Mk 8:36-37, Mt 16:26]

---------

Humans keep away from Atheism. And be in preparation for the Lord. His Second Coming is now very soon upon us.

Angela Anne Mary St John (Apostle of the Lord.)

A Prayer for Our Lord's Second Coming:

Lord Jesus, from wherever I am
in my life now, guide me as to
how I must be. So that on Your Day,
it will be my day, in You. Amen.
