2 Timothy 4:2-3. Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage – with great patience and care-full instruction. For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.
This passage has always apply to every time in Christian history, but never so true as it is now. You see Churches overflowing, not because they teach the truth, but because they know what people want to hear. They become wealthy, preaching lies, because that is what people want to hear. Some visionaries are saying the true church may only have about forty people in it if they are lucky. But they will be sincere. Saint Teresa said something like this I rather have ten true, faithful men serving God then ten thousand that are not true. And in the bible it says God can win a war with only a few people as well as many. After all it is God who gives us victory not the strength of horses as King David said in the Psalms.
The Remnant Church
The Remnant Church is after all called the Remnant Church for a reason. Many people call themselves Christian but in fact give Christians a very bad name, because they are what Jesus refers to as goats. Jesus is the good shepherd who watches over His sheep. He died an extremely cruel death so that we can be saved and made worthy so that we can enter into His Kingdom. But many Christians do not like His laws. They want to dress them up so that they can live selfishly for themselves. No way will they enter the Kingdom of Heaven with that mindset.
Satan is ambitiously attacking what God prices the most. His race is hated more than any other race in the world. And we all know why! They are the chosen people of God. Then there is the spiritual Israel, (the Christian people), which is hated more then any other religion in the world. Why? Because God loves us so much. What God loves, Satan hates with a hatred of hell fire. We have to expect being hated for God. Jesus said if they hated me, they are going to hate you. This is true. Look at all the churches of God which church is hated more than any other church in God’s Kingdom. The Catholic Church.
Matthew 16:18-19. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
The Catholic Church
The Catholic Church is hated more than any other church of God. There is a very good reason for it. Jesus gave His Authority to govern the church to Saint Peter. Even in the early days there was a great deal of competition going on. There were break- a- ways even then. The truth still remains that Jesus handed over the reins to Saint Peter, not Saint John, Saint Mark and etc. All early churches were originally started with an apostle of Jesus. Something the Protestants cannot brag about.
But still the truth remains, Jesus handed the keys of heaven over to Saint Peter not to the other apostles. The Catholic Church first pope far as we are concern is Saint Peter. All the popes can be traced back down to Saint Peter. Why would people argue against that? Isn’t it simple? Satan is the only one that will profit with the church being divided. In war the first job is to divide and then conquer. When you do that! you weaken the enemy and it is a lot easier to conquer them. Isn’t that what Satan is aiming at? To weaken the Church of God, so that he can bring down and cast as many souls to hell as possible?
Satan Attacking the Catholic Church
There is a Catholic prophetess that goes by the name Maria Divine Mercy. I have been following the prophecies that God has given her for years. And one prophecy she was told by Mary that the keys of the Vatican was taken back when pope Francis was elected in. there is another prophecy Mary spoke to some children in Garabandal in 1961 and particular to one of the girls Mary told her how many more popes there will come in the future and she was told one pope Mary doesn’t count. Which one would that be? Pope Francis. There has never been a person so harmful to the Catholic Church in all history. Why is Satan attacking all churches and especially the Catholic Church so viciously now more than any other time in history? It is because his time is so, so short. He wants to dam as many souls to hell as possible. And he is roaring like a lion trying to devour anybody he can.
People Love a Scandal
People are weak minded and Satan knows it. Spread a scandal around and most people will fall for it. The crueller the scandal is about somebody, country or church etc. the more people will fall for it. Must be because deep down people love a scandal. In the Old Testament it says the worst thing you can do to someone is destroy their reputation. Many so call Christians are no different from the people of the world, because unfortunately many enjoy what people call a ‘good scandal’ except when they are the ones being targeted.
Many people complain that the Catholic faith has no sound doctrine. One thing many don’t seem to realise for starters that the majority of what Catholic and Protestants believe is identical. I would say about ninety eight percent of what Catholics teach is exactly the same what Protestant teach. You wouldn’t think so when you read Protestant books. I don’t know how many Protestant books I have read, basically brag about their superior knowledge about ‘grace’ as if Catholics have a different belief on how to get to heaven.
We have the same beliefs about how to get to heaven as they do. Nobody can enter heaven by no other means than through Jesus Christ our Saviour. He is the door to heaven. He paid the full price of all our sins. No works that we can do is worthy of God. He has to clean up everything we give Him, because nothing, other than the works of Jesus and only His sacrifice is worthy of God. And because of God’s generosity He accept Jesus efforts to save us. Jesus paid the ransom of all our sins so we can be made worthy to enter the Kingdom of Heaven forever and ever if we believe in Him. Too truly believe in Him I might add is to follow Him. You don’t follow somebody you don’t believe in.
Now far as things like what people call dogmas of the Catholic Church. They say it is not biblical. Well you be surprise how biblical they are. I have found a place to buy good Catholic books that sell books that answers all those kind of questions. It is called ‘Sopia Institute Press.’ The web address is sophiainstitute.com. There are so many good books I would love to buy from her. Catholics as a rule don’t seem to stick up for the Catholic Faith like Protestant stick up for theirs. And because there is so many good Catholic books that are sticking up for the Catholic’s beliefs I wonder if they are all ex-Protestants such as I am. Because we were all raised to protest. I am just wondering.
