IT MAKES SENSE TO ME
Praise the Lord (TRULY). The 'black mass' abomination in Oklahoma City (with its huge congregation of 42 people) is finally over. The Satanic lovers of the "darkness" have had their day. I hope they are fulfilled with whatever redeeming spiritual blackness their boss can deliver into their misguided, hate filled, anti-God hearts.
I wrote about this shameful event back on August 8. The mock "mass" that these Satan lovers were going to enact was reprehensible enough. But what nagged at me like an unscratchable itch was the fact that these Catholic haters seemed to understand the Holy Eucharist, and what it actually was, better than many "cafeteria" Catholics (those who pick & choose doctrine they accept). Statistics say that 48% of "Catholics" do not accept the Real Presence (a blog for another day). Yet here are Satanists obviously accepting this profound Dogma of Catholicism. They must realize the truth of this Dogma, or why would they revel in hating and defiling it? There would be no point.
So, why do Satanists want to desecrate a Host consecrated at a Catholic Mass? They are definitely not interested in a Host from another Christian service. Is their callous faithlessness filled with an abiding TRUTH that they cannot stand because of their pride and ego? Is the magnificent reality of the Eucharistic Sacrifice offered at the Mass what drives them to gather together to defile, mock and denigrate this mystery? Is this why Adam Daniels, the Satanist in charge of this debasement, tells us they will denounce Jesus Christ, stomp and spit on the Host they are using and even urinate on it. How can they hate something so much? I think I know why.
I have come to the realization that they have the truth in their hearts and down deep inside they know what that truth is. Unfortunately for them, the greatest of the Seven Deadly Sins, PRIDE, has embraced them all in a bear-hug of self-centeredness, a hold that they choose not to break free from. Therefore, it follows, down deep inside they also hate themselves. This is very sad.
They hate so much because Satan himself is hate and they are filled with his venom. They do not understand that Satan hates them too. He hates them because they can still obtain redemption. God is love and that love is pure Goodness. Any of these human followers of Satan still have an opportunity to ask God for His forgiveness. If they do, God will embrace them and welcome them home. They can perform these heinous acts against Christ and still have a chance for redemption. They can change their minds and have this opportunity up until death takes them.
Satan, as the greatest of all angels, had his chance and blew it. He turned against God and was cast from heaven with his pride-filled followers. His Pride cost him to lose total Hope. Filled with hate he and those that followed him prowl around the world seeking the ruin of souls, a task at which they have been extremely successful. Ironically, Satan hates his human followers more than they can imagine. That is because he has no fear or respect for any of them. More than anything, he knows they can still find redemption if they so decide. That drives him crazy because a) he knows he is so much better than them; and b) redemption can NEVER be his. Bring on the eternal envy.
Each and every one of us has a life long, personal war we must wage within ourselves. That war's two main enemies are Pride and HUMILITY. These two entities are part of us and they pit us against ourselves throughout our entire lives. Pride has torn apart families, destroyed friendships, fomented resentment and bitterness, incited fury and outrage, and even led to war and murder and something called a 'black mass'.
The antidote to Pride is Humility. For many that is too hard a pill to swallow. How many of us have heard words or even used words like:
"I'm NOT apologizing to him." or
"She was RUDE to me. I'm never talking to her again." or
"I'm not going to confession and telling my sins to another person." or
"She's SO stuck up. I can't stand her."
Death, destruction, and mayhem are the result of pride. It certainly can be a terrible thing. Jesus, dying on the cross, forgave His executioners and all of us too. Therein is the greatest lesson in Humility ever given.
The war within each of us will continue until our deaths. Many times it is a hard fought struggle, but many of us win these ongoing battles. Having the Love of God in your life, combined with prayer, are the greatest weapons against this deadly sin of pride. Sadly, many surrender to the Great Impostor, Satan, and his lies and false promises of worldly pleasure. For all of those folks, let the rest of us keep praying for them, and that includes the Oklahoma City Satanists.
