Who Am I Supposed To Believe?

Q: Who Am I Supposed To Believe?

A: Anybody can interpret a holy book to any particular purpose, but facts are facts.

The only “faith outfits” that presently exist on the earth who have any real, practical experience with God from the very beginning, are the Jews and the Catholics.

Neither faith relies on the Bible alone, but on the complete revelation of God via scripture, tradition, and the teachings of those in authority.

The Jews had a major “train wreck” shortly after they rejected Christ, and they’ve never really recovered.

The Catholics carry on pretty much as always, in spite of the rampant corruption that has always existed in the Church, since Judas. Yet their authentic doctrine … the “Sacred Deposit of Faith” … remains pure and undefiled … which is really some kind of a miracle.

Catholics have documented what they ideally teach and practice in exquisite scholarly detail, with a complete systematic theology that has never been equaled, compiled over the course of some twenty centuries … and they also have a practical, proven philosophy of life to go along with it.

Can’t beat that.

Watch this “You Tube” video for what seems to be a real-time simulation of these verses, in the Book of Revelation:

 

Rev 8:1
And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven, as it were for half an hour.
Rev 8:2
And I saw seven angels standing in the presence of God: and there were given to them seven trumpets.
Rev 8:3
And another angel came and stood before the altar, having a golden censer: and there was given to him much incense, that he should offer of the prayers of all saints, upon the golden altar which is before the throne of God.
Rev 8:4
And the smoke of the incense of the prayers of the saints ascended up before God from the hand of the angel.
Rev 8:5
And the angel took the censer and filled it with the fire of the altar and cast it on the earth: and there were thunders and voices and lightnings and a great earthquake.
Rev 8:6
And the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound the trumpet.
Rev 8:7
And the first angel sounded the trumpet: and there followed hail and fire, mingled with blood: and it was cast on the earth. And the third part of the earth was burnt up: and the third part of the trees was burnt up: and all green grass was burnt up.
Rev 8:8
And the second angel sounded the trumpet: and, as it were, a great mountain, burning with fire, was cast into the sea. And the third part of the sea became blood.
Rev 8:9
And the third part of those creatures died which had life in the sea: and the third part of the ships was destroyed.
Rev 8:10
And the third angel sounded the trumpet: and a great star fell from heaven, burning as it were a torch. And it fell on the third part of the rivers and upon the fountains of waters:
Rev 8:11
And the name of the star is called Wormwood. And the third part of the waters became wormwood. And many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
Rev 8:12
And the fourth angel sounded the trumpet: and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars, so that the third part of them was darkened. And the day did not shine for a third part of it: and the night in like manner.
Rev 8:13
And I beheld: and heard the voice of one eagle flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice: Woe, Woe, Woe to the inhabitants of the earth, by reason of the rest of the voices of the three angels, who are yet to sound the trumpet!

Who do you think the whore is in the Book of Revelation?

Q: Who do you think the whore is in the Book of Revelation? 

A: The original “woman riding the beast” is the pagan goddess Europa, for whom the continent of Europe was named.

You’ll find a statue of same gracing the front of the EU parliament building located in Brussels, Belgium today (see photo).

Plenty of hills, plenty of kings, plenty of scarlet, and plenty of whoring going around there, to this day.

As for the rest, and how everything might one day come together, your guess is as good as anyone’s … because so far … all have consistently guessed wrong.

Why pray the Rosary?

Q: What is the importance of praying the rosary, as a Catholic?

A: There’s no requirement for any Catholic to pray the Rosary.

Catholics choose to do so, for some or all of the following reasons:

The Rosary affirms all the best qualities of humanity, and it also celebrates God’s very own confirmation of his original plan for mankind.

The Rosary celebrates the fullfilment of God’s promise to send a redeemer, the seed of the woman, who would crush the head of the serpent.

The Rosary is almost totally scriptural, as it is taken directly from the gospel of St. Luke: “Luke 1:28 And the angel being come in, said unto her: Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.

Luke 1:41 And it came to pass that when Elizabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the infant leaped in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost.
Luke 1:42 And she cried out with a loud voice and said: Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.”

The Rosary is a very effective meditation, since it relies on several other key scriptural sequences (called mysteries) as well, which celebrate Christ’s life, death, resurrection, and much more.

Very few people manage to actually commit a sin, in word or in deed, while they are actively engaged in praying the Rosary … so praying the Rosary certainly enhances personal holiness.

The Rosary can be succesfully prayed alone, while walking, driving, or working … or it can be prayed along with groups of any size … and almost anywhere.

The Rosary is a personally satisfying way to pray, as it proceeds in an orderly fashion from prayer to prayer, from beginning to end. If it is interrupted for any reason, it can be easily resumed and completed later.

The Blessed Virgin, through various Church approved apparitions, has confirmed the effectiveness and the value of praying the Rosary, for the purpose of converting sinners, giving honor and glory to God, and making reparations for our sins, and the sins of the whole world.

Catholics have found that praying the Rosary is a practical and effective way to engage in personal or public prayer and petition, especially in times of crisis.

Praying the Rosary is particlarly satisfying for those whose own mothers have already died.

The Rosary is one of several universally accepted, widely practiced devotions of the universal and worldwide Catholic church, so it brings the faithful together, whenever and wherever it is prayed.

Unlike the repetetive chants and rants of the pagans, who prayed to false and powerless gods, and to no good end … the purpose of the Rosary is to give constant honor, praise, and thanksgiving to God, who saves us through his power and his grace, and who chose to save us particularly through his son, Jesus, who will always be the son of Mary, the humble, holy woman who willingly cooperated so closely and faithfully with him, in his great work of redemption.

The following scripture verse proves that God has no problem at all with (appropriate) repetitive prayer:

Revelation 4:8 And the four living creatures had each of them six wings: and round about and within they are full of eyes. And they rested not day and night, saying: Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty, who was and who is and who is to come.
Revelation 4:9 And when those living creatures gave glory and honour and benediction to him that sitteth on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever …

Blessed be God!
