“How you are fallen from heaven,

O Day Star, son of Dawn!

How you are cut down to the ground,

you who laid the nations low!

13 You said in your heart,

‘I will ascend to heaven;

above the stars of God

I will set my throne on high;

I will sit on the mount of assembly

in the far north;

14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds,

I will make myself like the Most High.’

15 But you are brought down to Sheol,

to the depths of the Pit.

16 Those who see you will stare at you,

and ponder over you:

‘Is this the man who made the earth tremble,

who shook kingdoms,

17 who made the world like a desert

and overthrew its cities,

who did not let his prisoners go home?’

18 All the kings of the nations lie in glory,

each in his own tomb;

19 but you are cast out, away from your sepulchre,

like a loathed untimely birth,

clothed with the slain, those pierced by the sword,

who go down to the stones of the Pit,

like a dead body trodden under foot.

20 You will not be joined with them in burial,

because you have destroyed your land,

you have slain your people.” [Is 14]

Deduced two days ago … Thanks be to God through his angel (+ St. Thomas Aquinas?) … simple and elegant.

In hindsight, a sign from G_d?

Lighting strikes the basilica of St. Peter’s dome earlier this evening during a storm that struck Rome on the same day Pope Benedict XVI announced his resignation, February 11, 2013.

And now war broke out in heaven, when Michael with his angels attacked the dragon. The dragon fought back with his angels, but were defeated and driven out of heaven. The great dragon, the primeval serpent, known as the devil or Satan, who had deceived all the world, was hurled down to earth and his angels were hurled down with him. Then I heard a voice shout from heaven, ‘Victory and power and empire for ever have been won by our G_d, and all authority for his Christ, now that the persecutor, who accused our brothers day and night before our G_d, has been brought down. They have triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the witness of their martyrdom, because even in the face of death they would not cling to life. Let the heavens rejoice and all who live there; but for you, earth and sea, trouble is coming – because the devil has gone down to you in rage, knowing that his days are numbered.’

I watched Satan fall like lightning from heaven.

A prophet persecuted?

A prophet persecuted?

The sin of Sodom and Gomorrah was not the sin of Sodom!
Inhospitality, not being kind to strangers, that’s our conclusion!

The fruits of truth they held not in their bosom
Therefore was sent to them a strong spirit of delusion.

They listened not to the Westboro founder
Coming from heaven to them is the fire and brimstone
Their destruction is written as set in stone,
When smoke billows from the Abyss at the appointed hour

LORD, mercy and forgiveness for founder Phelps, justice and redemption for your Church!

How will this all end? For or against G_d?

I dread, I dread, for the Pope.

I pray, I pray, I pray, for the Pope.

What profiteth a man surely?

The choice, the same for all:

A paltry spell like a shooting star. (How many years left in life? (cf. The martyrdom of Eleazar 2 M 6: 18-31))

or

Being assured shining like the sun in our Father’s Kingdom by doing the very ‘same’ things!

How I nearly go mad!

cf. Jg. 17-18 A. THE SANCTUARY OF MICAH AND THE SANCTUARY OF DAN

vv 21-26

I am shouting !

‘You have taken away my/our priest of my/our G_d that my/our Brother, the Firstborn, bought with his own blood and appointed priest. You go on your way, what is left for me/us? Will you take away the perpetual sacrifice as well? How can you ask me, “what is this about?”‘

Currently they are stronger. I pray to my/our true G_d, almighty, whose priest they have taken (to give an appearance of legitimacy to their cause/’church’, and lead men astray to worship their god).

Our G_d will answer shortly.

He will answer for us and they will answer for it.
