The Choice Explained

The Virgin Lady is with Child

The girdle or bow around her waist is a sign of her virginity, but it also has several other meanings. The bow appears as a four-petaled flower. To the native Indians, this was the nahui ollin, the flower of the sun, a symbol of plenitude. The cross-shaped flower was also connected with the cross-sticks which produce fire. For them, this was the symbol of fecundity and new life. The high position of the bow and the slight swelling of the abdomen show that the Lady is “with child”. According to Dr. Carlos Fernández Del Castillo, a leading Mexican obstetrician, the Lady appears almost ready to give birth with the infant’s head down resting vertically. This would further solidify her identification with the woman of Rev. 12 who is about to give birth. (Source)

Mother’s Solicitude

“Let not your heart be disturbed. Do not fear that sickness, nor any other sickness or anguish. Am I not here, who am your Mother? Are you not under my protection? Am I not your health? Are you not happily within my fold? What else do you wish? Do not grieve nor be disturbed by anything.”

Who is this that even has familial visitations of Our LORD, Our Lady, and Mighty St. Michael?

Who is this that even has familial visitations of Our LORD, Our Lady, and Mighty St. Michael?

Ans: Melchisedech

Hebrews 7:1-4 (RSVCE)

The Priestly Order of Melchizedek

7 For this Melchiz′edek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him; 2 and to him Abraham apportioned a tenth part of everything. He is first, by translation of his name, king of righteousness, and then he is also king of Salem, that is, king of peace. 3 He is without father or mother or genealogy, and has neither beginning of days nor end of life, but resembling the Son of God he continues a priest for ever.

4 See how great he is!

Despite this greatness, Mother to him:

She first visited with St. Michael last year. Confused the latter for Jesus for a while …


I can’t hide it, no
I can’t fight it, oh
It’s so hard to live without the love
You gave to me

Don’t you know it?
I tried hard not to show it
Can’t I make you realize that I
Really need you again?

I would do anything
I would go anywhere
There’s nothing I wouldn’t do
Just to see you again
(Just to see you again)

You brightened up my everyday
Made me feel so good in every way
If I could have you back to stay
I’ve got to see you again

tremendo iudício?! The Great Judgement, is this happening?; @thewarourtime’s

Easter Sunday, April 12, 2020

They had set a date of Sunday, April 12, 2020, that has come and gone.

So what’s going on? It appears something has stalled.

The End of the Age

We know the end, first the beast with it the false prophet are captured and then finally the dragon, the devil, who had deceived them, too is captured and thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

The devil, the deceiver he is, is sacrificing those he deceived, putting them in front of him. Right now my family and I are locked in a tremendous battle to have one of our own parents face their sins. And truly, it is just as the LORD said, the first shall be last and vice-versa. The parent we thought was responsible for the woes in the family, actually turns out to be a great saint, continually loving their spouse who was brazen in outraging them and presented themselves as the innocent injured spouse, when it was quite the opposite. The faithful deceased parent still coos for their beloved spouse … just witnessing an amazing faithful love, in spite of everything.

Various details to varying degrees will be shared as this unfolds but of course with proper decorum and cognizant of the dignity of the persons involved.

@thewarourtime’s judgment

Frame One: The LORD to me, ‘Are you coming?’

Frame 2: My response whilst rising, paraphrasing, ‘there isn’t a/another family for me out there.’

Frame 3: The Devil Could not produce even one last trick. His hands flinched a little but did not move further.

ALLELUIA • 29 September (Feast of Saint Michael the Archangel)

Melchisedech: “When the LORD established the heavens, I was there.”

Melchisedech, king of righteousness, who is at the very gates says,

“When the LORD established the heavens, I was there.”

He was there

when the morning stars sang together,
and all the sons of God [- he one of them -] shouted for joy
Cf Job 38:6-7 (RSVCE)

Though pre-existing the day-star.

From the womb, before the day-star have I begotten thee.
The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent: Thou art a priest for ever according to the order of Melchisedech.
– Psalm cix, Vespers, Little Office of BVM

Blessed is he who waits and comes to the thousand three hundred and thirty-five days.

Because they will live to see the fulfillment of the above-named Psalm:

Thine shall be the dominion in the day of thy power, amid the brightness of the saints: from the womb […]

The revelation of these sons of God among us very close. Apparently they are beings of light, like Moses glowed after speaking with God on the Mountain.

“Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; […].” So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

God creates man on the sixth day

Genesis 1:26-31 (RSVCE)

26 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.” 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.” […] And it was so. 31 And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, a sixth day.

That’s why 6 is the number of man, and 666, the number of the beast, that is, number intensified.

The Mystery of God, The mystery of the Most Holy Trinity

“The mystery of the Most Holy Trinity is the central mystery of Christian faith and life. It is the mystery of God in himself. It is, therefore, the source of all the other mysteries of faith, the light that enlightens them. It is the most fundamental and essential teaching in the ‘hierarchy of the truths of faith.’ The whole history of salvation is identical with the history of the way and the means by which the one true God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, reveals himself to men ‘and reconciles and unites with himself those who turn away from sin.’”

“Christians are baptized ‘in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.’ Before receiving the sacrament they respond to a three-part question when asked to confess the Father, the Son, and the Spirit: ‘I do.’ ‘The faith of all Christians rests on the Trinity.’””[1]

Trinity on Earth

The Mystery here is very deep indeed. But first an anonymous Carol in old English – can we understand it now? – and Latin, 15th century, second stanza:

For in this rose conteinèd was
Heaven and earth in litel space,
Res miranda, res miranda.

In order:

– Joseph, Mary, God
– Mary, Jesus, Holy Spirit
– Joseph, Jesus, Mary/Mary, Jesus, Joseph/Joseph, Mary, Jesus

Last person like the Holy Spirit, uniting or covering.

That’s why St. Joseph is always silent! He is in heaven in a most unique way.

In eternity

There is the one Almighty and only God, the Father and the Son in the unity of the Holy Ghost.

Pre-existing, with them, are sons of God from the womb before the day-star, Lucifer.

In the beginning on Earth

– God [the Son], Adam, styled son of God, then
– Adam, Eve, God [the Son]

In the beginning in Heaven

– God [the Son the Holy Spirit], Lucifer the Day Star, then
– God [the Son the Holy Spirit], Lucifer, the covering Cherub, then
– the rest of the morning stars

This is the heavenly court. Cf. Which order/choir of angels did Satan most likely belong to before he fell?

In heaven

Antiphon: The Virgin Mary was taken up to the heavenly chamber, where the King of kings sits on His starry throne.
Terce, The Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Whom the heavens cannot contain has chosen heaven as his dwelling place together with his sons and the stars. Cf. 1 Kgs 8:27 and Matt 6:9 (RSVCE)

It appears that the fixed stars are individual stars or a son of God and a star in companionship, all in a fixed place in relation to one another and placed around God.

Polaris Star Trails

The rebellion led by the day-star, the War in Heaven, is some sons of God and some stars abandoning their assigned stations.

to datechon/ho katechon, now we know what was restraining the Antichrist

The Apostle [St. Paul] gives three stages in the evolution of evil: the leaven of iniquity, the great apostasy, and the man of sin. But he adds a clause calculated to determine the time of the main event more accurately; he describes something first as a thing (to datechon), then as a person (ho katechon), preventing the occurrence of the main event: “Only he who now holdeth, do hold, until he be taken out of the way.”
Catholic Encyclopedia > Antichrist

He mentions this in his Second Epistle to the Thessalonians:

2 Thess 2:6-7 (RSVCE)
6 And you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his time. 7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way.[a]

a. Evil will operate secretly till the final unmasking.

Now that daily Mass has ceased and this is mentioned in prophet Daniel [9:26-27 (RSVCE); continual burnt offering], in hindisght we can now see that it was the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

to datechon

that was restraining the appearance of the Antichrist.

Being the ape of God, the devil knows:

Mk 3:27 (RSVCE)
27 But no one can enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man; then indeed he may plunder his house.

With the Holy Mass out of the way, through the agency of his beasts, he can now make war on the saints and conquer them.

The Sacrifice of the New Law

The Sacrifice of the New Law is the Holy Mass, which is the Sacrifice of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, really present on the altar under the appearances of bread and wine, and offered to God for the living and the dead.

The Holy Mass is one and the same Sacrifice with that of the Cross, inasmuch as Christ, who offered himself, a bleeding victim, on the Cross to his heavenly Father,

continues to offer himself in an unbloody manner on the altar, through the ministry of his priests.

Idol/image representing “La Pachamama”

A bowl of dirt on the right of the stone is there to represent Pachamama, because of her status as a Mother Earth. (source)

Brazilian Catholic commentator Bernardo Küster told Dr. Taylor Marshall that the bowl of earth and greenery was itself a substitute for the carvings of the idols.

“It’s the Mother Earth …. And that vase was full of earth,” Küster said.

“So for them, it doesn’t matter if it’s an idol made of wood or if it’s a vase full of earth because to them everything is interconnected,” (Source)

Offering to “La Pachamama”

[P]ots of earth, filled with votive offerings which are then covered over with flowers, are associated with the traditional worship of the Pachamama, or Earth Mother. Moynihan linked to a guide to Pachamama worship, which encourages devotees not to leave out something red. (Source)

The Horror!

So the bowl of dirt was both an idol/image of and an offering to “La Pachamama” or the deity Mother Earth right on the same Altar at St. Peter’s on which Pope Francis, as a minister of Christ, offered to God the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, really present on the altar under the appearances of bread and wine.

Satan was beside God at the Altar of St. Peter’s receiving worship at the same time God was receiving worship.

It appears Satan has achieved in the Church, the kingdom of heaven on earth, what he attempted to do in heaven but was thwarted in the heavenly court by St. Michael who asked during that attempt, ‘who is like God?’ By contrast, the highest of God’s ministers Pope Francis actually gave La Pachamama idol prominence as it led the procession into St. Peter’s and after receiving the idol, he instructed that the same idol be placed on the Altar, thus profaning St. Peter’s and desecrating her Altar.

The Desolating Sacrilege at Holy Mass concluding the Pan-Amazon Synod [“La Pachamama” Synod] of Bishops Sunday, 2019-10-27: ‘let those who are in Rome flee to the mountains!’

The idol itself is called an Abomination.

The “Desolating Sacrilege”

The “Desolating Sacrilege”, literally “Abomination of Desolation”, is taken from Daniel 9:27 meaning the profanation of the temple (1 Mac 1:54). In the verses Mark 13:14-23 on the great tribulation, our LORD appears to regard the fall of Jerusalem as a metaphor for the end of the world.

The Desolating Sacrilege upon the Altar of Burnt Offering c. 167 B.C.

1 Maccabees 1:53-55 (RSVCE)

Zeus Olympus

The rabbis as a whole consider the expression “Abomination of Desolation” as referring to the desecration of the Temple by the erection of a Zeus statue in its sacred precincts by Antiochus IV Epiphanes.

The Jewish War in Judaea (70-71 CE)
The Arch of Titus, Rome

The Arch of Titus is a Roman Triumphal Arch which was erected by Domitian in c. 81 CE at the foot of the Palatine hill on the Via Sacra in the Forum Romanum, Rome. It commemorates the victories of his father Vespasian and brother Titus in the Jewish War in Judaea (70-71 CE) when the great city of Jerusalem was sacked and the vast riches of its temple plundered. The arch is also a political and religious statement expressing the divinity of the late emperor Titus.

In the year AD 70, the Roman armies destroyed and profaned the temple, though the exact nature of the Desolating Sacrilege is unknown. The South inner panel close-up of relief of the Arch shows some spoils from the plundered temple.

The Navarre Bible – NT Expanded Edition Commentary:

1) Matthew 24:15-28

The discourse now returns to what our LORD was saying earlier (24:5-8). In the first verses of this passage (vv. 15-22), he seems to be referring specifically to the destruction of Jerusalem and all the unimaginable travails that will involve (cf. v. 21). To denominate this terrible event, Jesus uses the phrase “the desolating sacrilege”, referring to the “abomination of desolation”, spoken of in the book of Daniel (9:27; 11:31; 12:11), when the prophet speaks of the idolatrous Antiochus IV Epiphanes, who occupied the temple with his troops and placed images of false gods on the altar of burnt offerings (1 Mac 1:54). Our LORD is applying that episode from the history of Israel to the future destruction of Jerusalem: that is why he calls attention to the passage in Daniel (“let the reader understand”). A new abomination, he says, will occur, ruining the temple to make way for idolatrous worship – as would happen in fact in year AD 70, when the Roman armies destroyed and profaned the temple, and again later under Hadrian, who ordered the erection of a statue of Jupiter on its ruins.

Our LORD the (vv. 25-28) announces further calamities: amid all these trials, false prophets and messiahs will appear (v. 24), who will perform false signs and wonders. They will try to pass themselves off as the true Christ who is to come (v. 26). Jesus has a single word of warning for all these eventualities: “Do not believe it” (vv. 23, 26). The Son of man will not come in a hidden way or only for the sake of certain individuals; he will come like lightning that lights up all the earth (v. 27)

2) Mark 13:14-23

In these verses, our LORD appears to regard the fall of Jerusalem as a metaphor for the end of the world. The “desolating sacrilege”, literally “abomination of desolation” (v. 14), is a phrase taken from Daniel 9:27 meaning the profanation of the temple (1 Mc 1:54). Our LORD uses it to describe the terrible situation of the inhabitants of Jerusalem (vv. 14-20) when these days come: their plight will seem unbearable. He also speaks of the false messiahs and false prophets who will appear to work “signs and wonders” to deceive believers (vv. 21-22). This great “tribulation” (v. 19) is something that Christians should keep in mind when they feel they can endure no further trials. To cope with these difficulties, our LORD says, Christians must remember two things. First, he realizes that the dangers may well seem overwhelming, but God will not allow his chosen ones to be tempted beyond their endurance (v. 20). Also, they should remember that he has forewarned them: they must take heed and be watchful (v. 23). “The Word kept hidden from us the day and hour of the end of all things, and the day and hour of our own deaths. […] Since we know neither the day nor the hour, we will walk onwards every day as we have been called, fixing our attention on what is truly important and ignoring whatever is of no real importance. If a man knew the day and hour of his death, he might waste all the time before it came. Since we know neither the day nor the hour, we must always be prepared” (St. Athanasius, Contra Aroanos, 3, 49).

2) Catholic Encyclopedia > The Abomination of Desolation

3) Jewish Encyclopedia > ABOMINATION By H. Pereira Mendes

(to’ebah): Abomination of the highest degree; […] Still more offensive to the God of Israel is the practise of idolatry. The idol itself is called an Abomination: “for it is an abomination to the Lord thy God. Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house and thus become a thing set apart [tabooed=ḥerem] like unto it; thou shalt utterly detest it and utterly abhor it; for it is a thing set apart [tabooed]” (Deut. vii. 25, 26, Heb.): “Cursed be the man that maketh a graven or molten image, an abomination unto the Lord” (Deut. xxvii. 15).

4) Wikipedia | Pachamama > New Age worship

There has been a recent rise in a New Age practice among white and Andean mestizo peoples. There is a weekly ritual worship which takes place on Sundays and includes invocations to Pachamama in Quechua, although there are some references in Spanish. Inside the temple, there is a large stone with a medallion on it, symbolizing the New Age group and its beliefs. A bowl of dirt on the right of the stone is there to represent Pachamama, because of her status as a Mother Earth. Many rituals related to the Pachamama are practiced in conjunction with those of Christianity, to the point that many families are simultaneously Christian and pachamamistas. Pachamama is sometimes syncretized as the Virgin of Candelaria. Certain travel agencies have drawn upon the emerging New Age movement in Andean communities (drawn from Quechua ritual practices) to urge tourists to come to visit Inca sites. Tourists visiting these sites, such as Machu Picchu and Cusco, are offered the chance to participate in ritual offerings to Pachamama.

5) Wikipedia > Abomination of desolation

The abomination of desolation, abomination that makes desolate, or desolating sacrilege (Hebrew: הַשִּׁקּוּץ מְשׁוֹמֵֽם, ha-shikkuts meshomem, Latin: abominatio desolationis) is a term found in the Book of Daniel which means literally “an abomination that desolates” or “an abomination that *depopulates”.

What is the Role of the False Prophet?


The Navarre Bible – NT Expanded Edition

The Beasts Given Authority by the Dragon

From the commentary in The Navarre Bible – NT Expanded Edition on Rev 13:1-10, The first beast (vv. 1-10), that rises out of the sea symbolizes political power taken to such an extreme that it supplants God; the second (vv. 13:11-18), that rises from out of the earth, symbolizes those who defend and propagate that deification of power by giving it an acceptable face.

From the commentary in the aforementioned NT Edition on Rev 13:11-18, the second beast is identified with false prophets (cf. 16:13; 19:20) because his role consists in leading people astray and convincing them to worship the first beast. The rest of the commentary reads as follows:

Because he has real (but evil) power, he is able to work prodigies similar to those performed by the prophets (e.g., Elijah, who brought fire down from heaven: cf. 1 Kings 18:38) and even appears to vie with the power of the life-giving Spirit by breathing life into the images of the beasts. He symbolizes regimes and ideologies that reject God and put man on a pedestal. Materialism, “understood as a theory which explains reality and accepted as the key principle of personal and social action”, works in the same deceptive way, for “though it sometimes also speaks of the ‘spirit’ and of ‘questions of the spirit’, as for example in the fields of culture or morality, it does so only insofar as it considers certain facts as derived from matter (epiphenomena), since according to this system matter is the one and only form of being. It follows, according to this interpretation, that religion can only be understood as a kind of ‘idealistic illusion’, to be fought with the most suitable means and methods according to circumstances of time and place, in order to eliminate it from society and from man’s very heart” (John Paul II, Dominum et Vivificantem, 56).
