The WAR: The earthly city, mystery Babylon vs. the heavenly city, Jerusalem

The WAR Revealed/The WAR in Our Time:

The earthly city, mystery Babylon vs. the heavenly city Jerusalem

The WAR
The WAR

Why this uproar among nations?
Why this impotent mutterings of pagans –
kings on earth rising in revolt,
princes plotting against the LORD and his Anointed,
‘Now let us break their fetters!
Now let us throw off their yoke!’

The One whose throne is in heaven sits laughing,
The LORD derides them.
Then angrily he addresses them,
in a rage he strikes them with panic,
‘This is my king, installed by me
on Zion, my holy mountain’.

Psalm 2: The messianic drama


3) In terms of prospects for the future, whether this system is in danger of breaking down – which would be a positive development for the US and for the whole world – or whether the Deep State and its related media arm will risk unleashing what might be the final war in human history in an attempt to preserve its power, privileges, and wealth. – The Media as watchdogs of American hegemony, 28.09.2016, by James George Jatrasby | KATEHON


13 And I saw, issuing from the mouth of the dragon and from the mouth of the beast and from the mouth of the false prophet, three foul spirits like frogs; 14 for they are demonic spirits, performing signs, who go abroad to the kings of the whole world, to assemble them for battle on the great day[a] of God the Almighty. 15 (“Lo, I am coming like a thief! Blessed is he who is awake, keeping his garments that he may not go naked and be seen exposed!”) 16 And they assembled them at the place which is called in Hebrew Armaged′don.[b] – Rev 16:13-16 (RSVCE)

And

19 And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth with their armies gathered to make war against him who sits upon the horse and against his army. 20 And the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who in its presence had worked the signs by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped its image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with brimstone. 21 And the rest were slain by the sword of him who sits upon the horse, the sword that issues from his mouth; and all the birds were gorged with their flesh. – Rev 19:19-21 (RSVCE)

And

Satan’s Doom
7 And when the thousand years are ended, Satan will be loosed from his prison 8 and will come out to deceive the nations which are at the four corners of the earth, that is, Gog and Magog, to gather them for battle; their number is like the sand of the sea. 9 And they marched up over the broad earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city; but fire came down from heaven[a] and consumed them, – Rev 20:7-9 (RSVCE)

This is the narrative: Here it will be that Christ calls and wants all beneath His standard, and Lucifer, on the other hand, wants all under his. … This is a mental representation of the place: It will be here to see a great plain, comprising the whole region about Jerusalem, where the sovereign Commander-in-Chief of all the good is Christ our Lord; and another plain about the region of Babylon, where the chief of the enemy is Lucifer. (St. Ignatius of Loyola, Spiritual Exercises)


How shall we persuade ourselves of the great truth that, in spite of outward appearances, human soceity, as we find it, is but part of an invisible world, and is really divided into two companies, the sons of God, and the children of the wicked one; that some souls are ministered unto by angels; others led captive by devils.
This is the Catholic doctrine of the warfare between the City of God and the powers of darkness. P.S. IV, 91 | 19. The Two Cities | The Mind of Cardnal Newman, Compiled by Charles Stephen Dessain | CATHOLIC TRUTH SOCIETY


Two kingdoms, two cities

Humanum genus leads with the presentation of the Augustinian dichotomy of the two cities, the City of Man and the City of God. The human race is presented as “separated into two diverse and opposite parts, of which the one steadfastly contends for truth and virtue, the other of those things which are contrary to virtue and to truth. The one is the kingdom of God on earth, namely, the true Church of Jesus Christ… The other is the kingdom of Satan,”[HG 2.] which was “led on or assisted” by Freemasonry:

At every period of time each has been in conflict with the other, with a variety and multiplicity of weapons and of warfare, although not always with equal ardour and assault. At this period, however, the partisans of evil seems to be combining together, and to be struggling with united vehemence, led on or assisted by that strongly organized and widespread association called the Freemasons. No longer making any secret of their purposes, they are now boldly rising up against God Himself. They are planning the destruction of holy Church publicly and openly, and this with the set purpose of utterly despoiling the nations of Christendom, if it were possible, of the blessings obtained for us through Jesus Christ our Saviour. Lamenting these evils, We are constrained by the charity which urges Our heart to cry out often to God: “For lo, Thy enemies have made a noise; and they that hate Thee have lifted up the head. They have taken a malicious counsel against Thy people, and they have consulted against Thy saints. They have said, ‘come, and let us destroy them, so that they be not a nation.’[HG 2.]

Humanum genus depicted the fundamental doctrine of Freemasonry as naturalism, asserting that this leads to deism and Gnosticism. This was seen as driving Freemasons headlong toward a fundamental clash with the teachings of the Church, especially in light of Freemasons’ support of separation of church and state by their efforts to enact and enforce civil constitutional obstacles to the establishment of state churches.
