The Catholic Defender: Band of Survivors
“Learn a lesson from the fig tree. When it’s branch becomes tender and sprouts leaves, you know that summer is near. In the same way, when you see all these things, know that he is near, at the gates. Amen, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things have taken place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away”.
It seems that mankind does not learn from the past. Jesus words were fulfilled with the destruction of Jerusalem on the 9th of AV, 70 A.D. Yet, the spiritual rebellion that cause the destruction of Jerusalem is growing today in our own time. Jesus continues to warn:
“But of that day and hour no one knows, neither the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone. For as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. In those days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day that Noah entered the ark. They did not know until the flood came and carried them all away. So will it be also at the coming of the Son of Man”.
The United States is being swept away by a new age, progressive agenda that sets itself in contrast to the gospel of Jesus Christ. As a result, the Catholic Church is being made war upon. It has been a process in the making from the early 1900′s with the Progressive Movement.
President Ronald Reagan once said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free”.
In 2010, while I was still deployed in Iraq, my Brigade Chaplain warned me that the Gay Activist had already approached the Military Chaplaincy.
They instructed the United States Army that the Chaplains will have to modify what they preach from the pulpit. This with the consent of the present Administration.
Is this not an attack on the Constitution of the United States? Is this not the beginning of an outward offensive. Obama does not fear public distrust in him, he has a willing and open media to shield him.
Storm clouds are coming and Christians are going to be forced to comply or they will be punished.
This is only the beginning as we have set into motion events that anything opposing this will be met with denial, with the force of the United States Government.
Consider the future of the Supreme Court. The influence that Obama will have on the Court will be greater even than President Roosevelt.
What lead to the taking of the bible and prayer out of public schools will continue with the legalizing Gay Marriage, Abortion, and Obama-care.
The Progressives will not stop until they silence the Church. They want to put in jail those who would refer to homosexual acts as sin. They want to remove the Church from having political influence which opposes their extreme left positions. We are refereed to as the “far-right” when in fact, they themselves are far -left.
The Progressives have packaged themselves as “centrist”, mainstream. America used to be considered center right as a nation, but it has had a dramatic shift.
People who were once known for being strong traditional family supported Obama nearly 75%. We are not in the process of losing our soul, we have already lost it.
Our only hope is in Jesus Christ if we are to turn things around.
Our struggle is only beginning, this is not a time for the Church to hide under a bushel basket. It is not a time to compromise our faith and values. It is time for us to take a stand for Christ, souls are at stake.
The Virgin Mary at Fatima warned against this very thing, this very threat and we have not listened.
Maybe we simply thought that this was for Russia and Eastern Europe? This could not happen in America? Well, it has happened as a result of our falling away from the Faith, for compromising with evil and embracing it.
There will be a Band of Survivors who will stand up for Jesus Christ and his Holy Church even though our voices will be diminished in the public eye. Yet, Our Lord and Our Lady is standing here with us. The following is very possible: as we are setting our path in motion that will be difficult to reverse:
