God's declaration of Truth


Luke Chapter 19

The words of Our Only Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in red.

19:10 "For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost."
19:11 As they were hearing these things, he added and spoke a parable, because he was nigh to Jerusalem and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately be manifested.
19:12 He said therefore: "a certain nobleman went into a far country, to receive for himself a kingdom and to return.
19:13 And calling his ten servants, he gave them ten pounds and said to them: Trade till I come.
19:14 But his citizens hated him and they sent an delegation after him, saying: 'We will not have this man to reign over us.'
19:15 And it came to pass that he returned, having received the kingdom: and he commanded his servants to be called, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading,
19:16 And the first came saying: 'Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds.'
19:17 And he said to him: 'Well done, thou good servant, because thou hast been faithful in a little, thou shalt have power over ten cities.'
19:18 And the second came, saying: 'Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds.'
19:19 And he said to him: 'Be thou also over five cities.'
19:20 And another came, saying: ' Lord, behold here is thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin.
19:21 For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up what thou didst not lay down: and thou reapest that which thou didst not sow.'
19:22 He saith to him: 'Out of thy own mouth I judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up what I laid not down and reaping that which I did not sow.
19:23 And why then didst thou not give my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have exacted it with usury?'
19:24 And he said to them that stood by: 'Take the pound away from him and give it to him that hath ten pounds.'
19:25 And they said to him: 'Lord, he hath ten pounds.'
19:26 But I say to you that to every one that hath shall be given, and he shall abound: and from him that hath not, even that which he hath shall be taken from him.
19:27 But as for those my enemies, who would not have me reign over them, bring them hither and slay them in my presence."
19:28 And having said these things, he went before, going up to Jerusalem.
19:29 And it came to pass, when he was come nigh to Bethphage and Bethania, unto the mount called Olivet, he sent two of his disciples,
19:30 Saying: "Go into the town which is over against you, at your entering into which you shall find the colt of an ass tied, on which no man ever hath sitten: loose it and bring it.
19:31 And if any man shall ask you: 'Why are you loosing it?' You shall say thus unto him: Because the Lord hath need of it.' "
19:32 And they that were sent went their way and found the colt standing, as he said unto them.
19:33 And as they were loosing the colt, the owners thereof said to them: "Why are you loosing it?
19:34 But they said: "Because the Lord has need of it."
19:35 And they brought it to Jesus. And casting their cloaks over the colt, they set Jesus on it.
19:36 And as he went, they spread their cloaks upon the road.
19:37 And when he was drawing near, being now at the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole company of his disciples began to rejoice and to praise God with a loud voice, for all the miracles that they had seen,
19:38 Saying: "Blessed is he who comes as king, in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!"
19:39 And some of the Pharisees, from the crowds, said to him: "Master, rebuke thy disciples."
19:40 He said to them: "I tell you that if these keep silence, the stones will cry out."
19:41 And when he drew near, seeing the city, he wept over it, saying:
19:42 "If thou also hadst known, and that in this thy day, the things that are to thy peace: but now they are hidden from thy eyes.
19:43 For the days shall come upon thee: and thy enemies shall cast a trench about thee and compass thee round and straiten thee on every side,
19:44 And beat thee flat to the ground, and thy children who are in thee. And they shall not leave in thee a stone upon a stone: because thou hast not known the time of thy visitation."
19:45 And entering into the temple, he began to cast out them that sold therein and them that bought.
19:46 Saying to them: "It is written: My house is the house of prayer. But you have made it a den of thieves."
19:47 And he was teaching daily in the temple. And the chief priests and the scribes and the rulers of the people sought to destroy him.
19:48 And they found not what to do to him: for all the people were very attentive to hear him.

The Second Epistle of St. Paul to the Thessalonians

The day of the Lord is not to come till the man of sin be revealed. The apostle's teachings are to be observed.

2:1 And we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and of our gathering together unto him:
2:2 That you be not easily moved from your sense nor be terrified, neither by spirit nor by word nor by epistle. as sent from us, as if the day of the Lord were at hand.

Chap. 2. Ver. 2. Spirit . . . utterance. . . letter indicate three possible sources of their belief that the parousia is imminent. Spirit refers to some falsely claimed revelation, utterance may be a statement of Paul’s which was misunderstood, or wrongly attributed to him, the letter seems to be one forged in Paul’s name.

2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for unless there come a revolt first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition

Ver. 3. . . The parousia must be preceded by a great apostasy, i.e., a great religious revolt, and the advent of the man of sin, i.e., Antichrist. Son of perdition, one entirely deserving of eternal punishment.

Ver. 3. The day of the Lord will not come. These words have been inserted to complete the sentence, which in the original is elliptical. The expanded reads "Let no man deceive you by any means: for the day of the Lord will not come unless there come a revolt first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition"

2:4 Who opposeth and is lifted up above all that is called God or that is worshipped, so that he sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself as if he were God.

Ver. 4. In the temple, that of Apostate Jerusalem which the full consensus of the Church Fathers declare he will rebuild - i.e. the Temple of Remphan; and in the Apostate shell of the former Christian church, which he perverts to his own worship: as the Freemasons have done to the Vatican.

Ver. 4. Antichrist will be characterized by great impiety and pride. He sits in the temple of God, etc. He will aspire to be treated as God and proclaim that he is really God.

2:5 Remember you not that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
2:6 And now you know what restrains him, that he may be revealed in his proper time.

Ver. 6. What restrains him. The Thessalonians knew the obstacle. We also know that it is Jesus Christ.

2:7 For the mystery of iniquity is already at work: only that he who is at present restraining it, does still restrain, until he is gotten out of the way.

Ver. 7. Mystery of iniquity, the evil power of Satan’s threefold prevarication and total Apostasy from God, of which Antichrist is to be the public exponent and champion. He who is at present restraining it. The obstacle is now spoken of as a person. Some point out that Michael the archangel and his heavenly army are obstacles, and this is true, which now prevent the appearance of Antichrist – but the primary obstacle is, as St. Justin Martyr teaches: Jesus Christ Himself; when the great Apostasy is complete, then in effect, Christ is “gotten out of the way.”

2:8 And then that wicked one shall be revealed: whom the Lord Jesus shall kill with the spirit of his mouth and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: him

Ver. 8. When Christ appears in glory, He will inflict defeat and death on Antichrist by a mere word of command.
2:9 Whose coming is according to the working of Satan, in all power and signs and lying wonders:

Ver. 9 – 10. By the aid of Satan Antichrist will perform prodigies which men will falsely regard as miracles, and by means of which they will be led to adopt sinful practices.

2:10 And with all wicked deception to those who are perishing. For they have not received the love of truth that they might be saved.
2:11 Therefore God shall send them the operation of error, to believe lying:

Ver. 11. God shall send. . .That is God shall suffer them to be deceived by lying wonders, and false miracles, in punishment of their not entertaining the love of truth.
Ver. 11. 'God sends.' God will allow their willful rejection of truth to have its natural results of spiritual blindness, impenitence and damnation. A misleading influence, or, “a delusion.” The operation of error - the Greek reads: "energian planes" or literally the energy of delusion, which is exactly and actually the fallen spirits of the devils and demons conjured by pagan religion, especially by idolatry. NOW, currently, the Assisi delusion of the Apostates, Ratzinger and Wojtyla and many others present with them, is a very real and prime example. To give oneself over to this is to invite utter and complete damnation of oneself by God.
2:12 That all may be judged who have not believed the truth but have consented to iniquity.

2:13 But we ought to give thanks to God always for you, brethren, beloved of God, for that God hath chosen you firstfruits unto salvation, in sanctification of the spirit and faith of the truth:
Ver. 13. First-fruits, i.e., earliest believers in the gospel. Some manuscripts read: “from the beginning.” That is, God called them from all eternity.
2:14 Whereunto also he hath called you by our gospel, unto the purchasing of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

2:15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast: and hold the teachings, which you have learned, whether by word or by our epistle.
Ver. 15. Teachings, i.e., his teachings whether given orally or in writing. Concerning Apostolic teaching – the oral is included in the written at the point we have the whole New Testament complete, i.e. with the completion of St. John’s Gospel.
2:16 Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God and our Father, who hath loved us and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope in grace,

2:17 Exhort your hearts and confirm you in every good work and word.

Il est né le Divin Enfant - He was born the Divine Child

1. Depuis plus de quatre mille ans,
Nous le promettaient les Prophetes;
Depuis plus de quatre mille ans,
Nous attendions cet heureux temps.

Il est ne, le divin Enfant,
Jouez, hautbois, resonnez, musettes;
Il est ne, le divin Enfant;
Chantons tous son avenement!

2. Ah! qu'il est beau, qu'il est charmant,
Que ses graces sont parfaites!
Ah! qu'il est beau, qu'il est charmant,
Qu'il est doux le divin Enfant!


3. Une etable est son logement,
Un peu de paille, sa couchette,
Une etable est son logement,
Pour un Dieu, quel abaissement!


4. O Jesus! O Roi tout puissant!
Tout petit enfant que vous etes,
O Jesus! O Roi tout puissant!
Regnez sur nous entierement!


Very interesting site below, will look at more of it.


L'AVENEMENT DU CHRIST(Psyché N°391 de 1929)

" Soyez sur vos gardes, je vous ai tout annoncé d'avance "

    La certitude d'un retour du Christ, à une date indéterminée, n'émane pas des décisions d'un Concile, mais des paroles mêmes de Jésus. Le Credo les confirme en ces termes : Il reviendra juger les vivants et les morts. Pour ceux donc, qui puisent leur lumière spirituelle dans les Evangiles, l'Avènement futur du Verbe ne saurait être mis en doute. Mais, en nous annonçant son retour public, le Sauveur nous averti qu'il s'élèvera d'abord de faux prophètes et de faux christs.

    A notre époque, diverses sectes chrétiennes, d'après des calculs tirés des deux Testaments, annoncent l'imminence de ce retour, en spécifiant même la date. Des plus, certains cercles plus ou moins ésotériques, prédisent depuis des années la venue d'un grand initié, porteur d'un nouveau Message, d'un nouveau Credo, ouvrant ainsi un nouveau cycle de civilisation. Ce Messie est assimilé tantôt à Buddha, tantôt à Jésus, tantôt aux deux, et d'ingénieux rapprochements de textes essaient de légitimer cette identification.

    Sans rechercher le but poursuivi par ces différents groupements, ni si tel ou tel sont des précurseurs et en quel nom ils parlent, nous nous en tiendrons à l'essentiel.

    Admettant une future manifestation du Christ, nous rechercherons seulement ses signes annonciateurs et, éventuellement, la conduite la plus sage à tenir en de telles circonstances.

    La race blanche est fortement tentée, depuis peu d'écouter " Les appels de l'Orient ". L'Asie est d'actualité et sa pénétration dans différents domaines de notre activité est un fait patent. Or, les doctrines orientales sur le sujet qui nous occupe, sont aussi précises que différentes des nôtres et, comme les préclamations d'un nouveau Messie s'appuient avant tout sur elles, nous essaierons d'exposer, clairement et brièvement, en quoi leurs conceptions diffèrent des conceptions chrétiennes.

    Tout d'abord, ceux qui prétendent assigner une date à un tel événement ont peut-être médité la Bible, mais ils ont négligé de lire simplement l'Evangile qui est formel : " nul ne sait le jour ni l'heure " Marc13-32.-Tout calcul est donc superflu. Nous savons seulement que ces temps seront précédés de convulsions sociales, de famines, d'anarchie intellectuelle, de perturbations météorologiques, de persécutions, et de la venue de plusieurs faux prophètes. Remarquons toutefois que tout jugement collectif est accompagné de tout ou partie desdits signes. A l'avènement de Jésus, tous se seront manifestés avec une intensité en rapport avec la gravité de l'heure. Nous n'en sommes pas là. Un autre problème est celui du mode de manifestation de notre Maître. Obombera-t-il un adepte choisi, ou viendra-t-il comme jadis, en personne ? L'Evangile nous certifie qu'il viendra, Lui-même, dans la plénitude de sa Gloire, et la logique veut que Celui qui peut tout n'ait pas besoin d'interprète. En prit-il jadis ?

    Certaines théories nous affirment que Jésus n'était qu'un adepte : " Un homme doué sur terre d'un principe divin "... " analogue à celui des autres hommes, mais plus évolué "; ... " tous les hommes étant fondamentalement et nécessairement divins ".

    - Le Messie futur " posséderait le divin en lui " " chacun le possédant également, mais à l'état latent ". Nous citons en conservant scrupuleusement le sens, mais il nous a semblé plus impersonnel de mettre les verbes au conditionnel.

    Il saute aux yeux que, en dehors de l'orgueil (peu évangélique, soit dit en passant) que peuvent exalter de telles doctrines, elles tendent à prouver que le Christ, fruit de l'évolution humaine, n'est qu'un stade, accessible à chacun, ou une fonction cosmique analogue ou inférieure à celle que les Indoux attribuent à leur Boddhi-sattwa. En ce cas, on pourrait se demander pourquoi la Divinité " s'est polarisée en force et matière " se fractionnant jusqu'au règne minéral, pour que ses divines fractions se résorbent ensuite dans l'unité primitive, au prix de quelles souffrances ? Notre faiblesse mentale d'occidental ne nous permet pas de découvrir une utilité évidente à ce jeu de puzzle éternel !

    Tout autre est le point de vue de l'Evangile. Le premier chapitre de Jean est clair. Pour celui-ci, Jésus est un involué, non évolué, il est le Verbe, l'Unique Seigneur, la Divinité faite chair, infiniment distant du plus haut des adeptes quant à sa personne Divine. Pour sa nature humaine (qui a fait couler des flots d'eucre et parfois, hélas, de sang) notons que Jésus ne se nomme pas " Fils de l'homme " mais bien " Fils d'Adam " (Math. Texte hébreu), c'est-à-dire de l'humanité dans ce qu'elle a de plus universel. Ainsi si le sommet évolutif de l'homme régénéré a pour archétype et modèle à jamais inimitable la nature humaine du Christ, sa nature Divine, ce par quoi il est Dieu total et unique, nous échappe absolument. Car, si Saint Paul, homme régénéré par la Grâce, a dit : " C'est Christ qui vit en moi ", il n'a pas dit : " Je suis un Christ ". N'est-ce pas par sa Divinité que Jésus nous offre un phénomène sans second et sans comparaison avec les autres instructeurs religieux ?

    " Vous serez comme des Dieux ", tel est le conseil insidieux du serpent. Méfions-nous donc, chrétiens, des faux bergers et des embûches de l'orgueil. Ceux qui viendront " en leur nom ", qui tenteront de nous séduire en vous persuadant que vous êtes des génies méconnus et des Dieux qui s'ignorent, ceux-là, malgré leur science et leur apparente pureté, ne peuvent être que des loups ravisseurs.

    Nous terminerons ces pages malhabiles par les paroles de notre Maître, car c'est à elles, verbes du Verbe, qu'aboutit finalement toute parole sincère :

" Si l'on vous dit : le Christ est ici, il est là ! ne le croyez pas. Si donc l'on vous dit : il est dans le désert ! n'y allez pas ; il est dans la chambre ! ne le croyez pas ; car, comme l'éclair part de l'orient et se montre jusqu'en occident, ainsi sera l'Avènement du Fils de l'Homme.    " Veillez donc et priez en tous temps, afin que vous ayez la force d'échapper à toutes ces choses et de paraître debout devant le Fils de l'Homme ! ".
