Democracy is from Hell
Unpopular message of the day:
It is hard for man to look at himself in honesty and shatter the belief system he has been born into, in order to pursue the truth. I understand intimately how the truth can seem bitter at first, but when pursued to its apex, can also bring a great hope. Now is the time where we need to pursue this truth especially in regard to our man made political systems; namely the democratic republics and on the other end, communism.
They are both diabolically inspired with the monarchy being the only divinely appointed order. Now I will not say that God abandons systems that are not pleasing to Him all together, He can and does work through them but ultimately we know that we are made in the image of God and the KINGDOM of heaven is in fact a Monarchy. One does not need to look too far back in history to see the divine hand in the lives of the kings and queens. Like every human endeavor there was corruption, but at least the appearance was given that the will of God was taken into consideration.
I want to consider the following private revelations for a minute:
Our Lady of the Good Event: “Thus, I make it known to you that from the end of the 19th century and from shortly after the middle of the 20th century, in what is today the Colony and will then be the Republic of Ecuador, the passions will erupt and there will be a total corruption of customs, for Satan will reign almost completely by means of the Masonic Sects. They will focus principally on the children in order to sustain this general corruption. Woe to the children of these times!

The evil ones will plot conspiracies against the Church to overthrow it. (August 19, 1878) + (Oct. 14, 1878) (July 23, 1925) A time of martyrdom is coming. (Oct. 14, 1878)
In the 'Chamber of Hell' in Paris, the black laws will be passed- they will be of a type of refinement and unprecedented evil that will be directed against the Faith and the Church, an attempt to erase everything of God. "They will go to the point of effacing the arts and to remake them under a hideous form, terrible and all that they prepare and approach." (Nov. 16, 1920)
(Observations: Our Lord mentions the 'terrible laws' that will come out – this must be another warning about the evil 'Red' government that will rise up and that will suppress the Church and all her moral teachings. Our Lord also warns they will destroy the arts to achieve their purpose of effacing God and His laws from the minds and hearts of the people – and it is obvious this is not just the plastic arts, but the other humanities and liberal arts – such as theology, philosophy, history, law, etc. The evil is described as 'refined' - meaning so smooth and subtle, we will hardly notice how it is being slipped in until it is almost too late.
In fact, we are seeing this take effect in the world right now to pave the way. Universities have become ultra left liberal breeding grounds, and many so-called Catholic universities are anything but Catholic. Theology and philosophy courses have become liberal and slanted away from anything resembling the conservative side. You can now be 'any gender you want', and we see now history is being rewritten or erased, statues are being pulled down. If someone doesn't agree with a historical figure, they are now being 'air brushed' from history. Socialism and even Communism are now becoming popular among the younger generation. We are told to hate Columbus for his 'tyranical destruction' of the indigenous peoples' pagan worship and to be ashamed of our Christian missionary history. Even literature departments are not spared – several years ago I browsed every major college website in the USA and the UK with an English department, and all of them either have a professor whose main subject is 'Queer theory or culture', or, their department offers courses on 'queer' culture and literature, etc. Parents who think English Lit is okay, or the arts, probably have no idea what colleges are teaching these days! If you are conservative at all now, you will hardly stand a chance at a university campus.)
About modern Democracy - it is from HELL ITSELF - the 'Luciferian Regime par excellence'. (April 20, 1874)
(*) France will pay for its 200 years of democracy and its anti christian regime - having abolished the absolute Catholic monarchy of France, (i.e during the Masonically influenced French Revolution), but the monarchy will eventually be restored. (April 20, 1874)
(INTERESTING OBSERVATIONS ABOUT TIMING: France officially ceased to be a Catholic nation and became a secular state when it abolished its absolute Catholic monarchy and adopted its first Constitution after the French Revolution in 1791 - France was declared a Republic in 1792.
Since 200 years had not passed when this prophecy was made in 1874 - the 200 years obviously refers to when France could expect the major chastisements - which means anytime from 1991-1992 onwards: the end of the 20th century and into the 21st. This fits in exactly with the chastisement timing revealed by other mystics.)
(*) Also, a cryptic prophecy that the date of the feast of the 'Queenship of Mary' would be changed to the end of the Octave of the Assumption - we are apparently to be on or guard regarding the chastisements from this time onwards when it happens. (August 1920)
(NOTE: Again interesting timing - this Feast didn't exist when she made this cryptic prophecy in 1920 - it was instituted in 1954 and the feast day was originally on May 31. It was changed to August 22 to the end of the Octave of the Assumption in 1969 - right when Vatican II was happening.)
Wow! to me it sounds like the Blessed mother and holy prophets would be called conspiracy theorists today. Let us now continue on to a human source via the book "Proofs of a Conspiracy" by John Robison written in 1798, in which he outlines the beginning of the secret societies and their plans to subvert the church via a democratic society which was born the the French lodges and seen on full display in the French Revolution.
"Under the protection of masonic secrecy, they panned schemes of a different kind, and instead of more Order of Chivalry directed against the enemies of their faith, they formed associations in opposition to the ridiculous and oppressive ceremonies and superstitions of the church."
The author describes the Illuminati as follows:
"The order was said to abjure Christianity, and refuse admission into the higher degrees to all who adhered to any of the three confessions. Sensual pleasures were restored to the rank they held in the Epicurean philosophy. Self-murder was justified on stoical principles. In the Lodges, death was declared an eternal sleep; patriotism and loyalty were called narrow-minded prejudices, and incompatible with universal benevolence; continual declamations were made on liberty and equality as the unalienable rights of man. The baneful influence of accumulated property was declared and insurmountable obstacle to the happiness of any nation who's chief laws were framed for its protection and increase....They concluded by saying that THE METHOD OF EDUCATION MADE THEM ALL SPIES ON EACH OTHER AND ON ALL AROUND THEM."
He goes on to describe the French Revolution as follows
"...politcal occurrences in France gave exercise and full scope for the operation of that spirit of revolt which had long growled in secret.....The cosmo-poltical and skeptical opinions and sentiments so much cultivated in all the lodges of the Philalethes has by this time been openly professed by many of the sages of France and artfully interwoven with their statistical economics. The many contests between the King and the Parliament of Paris about the registration of his edicts, had given occasion to much discussion and had made the public familiarly acquainted with topics altogether unsuitable to the absolutely monarchy of France....he then goes on to state that the view began to switch to a VERY LIBERAL INTERPRETATION OF THE ROLE OF GOVERNMENT."
Ah and just like that we all became "enlightened" thanks to Lucifer himself.
So as Americans, we must ask ourselves, are the most conservative among us still really "Liberal" in the grand scheme of history? I would argue yes.
"For when Kingship is weak, the powerful oppress and destroy." - Hilaire Bellloc
If one decides to research my beloved patron saint, Joan of Arc, it won't take long to stumble across Catholics and non-catholics alike who make her out to be the leader of "women's rights" and the "feminist movement."
Take for example this line in an article written by a Kate Mcguire on May 6 2013 titled Joan of Arc: Feminist Leader, Prophet, Influence to allThe ultimate role model for young girls to aspire to be something more. I'm sorry but this headline is straight up offensive...something more? something more than what, being a girl? what's wrong with being a girl? Why do feminists hate themselves so much?
The offensive and wrong headline is bad enough but she then goes on to state the following about Joan:
"A dedicated, driven, and passionate Christian, Joan of Arc (also known from her family name, Jeanne la Pucelle) has risen as a leader of the Catholic Church since her execution in Rouen’s Old Market Square. Joan comes as a symbol of not only peace and a glorified martyr, but as one of the first recognized feminists of the time."
She further goes on to make the connection between Joan and the Salem Witch trials which is not the same at all and is horribly offensive to pius ears.
Lord have Mercy... the modern woman cannot see the heights from which she has fallen. This is just one example of many regarding the fact that Joan has been one of *if not the* most misunderstood saints in the Catholic Church. Far from throwing off the yoke of gender roles and the natural/divine authority structure both in the family and in society, she came to restore proper authority and order. That was literally her whole mission. When is the last time you heard a feminist talk favorably about monarchies? They don't because they have a problem accepting the divine authority structure which is why they are feminists to begin with. The entire point of feminism is to revolt or rebel against a patriarchal system. They can't for one second of their miserable and prideful lives fathom the fact that God's system involves authority and hierarchy.... WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT JOAN FOUGHT TO RESTORE.
Feminists do not believe that the man is the head of the family or that the family represents a miniature kingdom within society, therefore they definetely reject the male king as having ultimate God given authority to rule over society at large.
Feminists do not believe that God is big into roles both within the family and outside of the family which is the total opposite of what Joan of Arc knew to be true. Her entire mission was to help God restore King Charles VII to his rightful throne that was usurped by England during the 100 year war. If she was here today, she would tell all you women to stop trying to usurp your husband's GOD GIVEN role of which you have no authority to try to do. Remember what happened the last time the roles got confused...namely in the garden of eden? Yeah all of humanity fell when Adam submitted his authority to his wife and choose to go against God and eat the bad fruit.
When you take a closer look, there is absolutely nothing compatible between the feminists and Saint Joan, and I mean nothing.
One claim that is frequently made is that Joan proves that women can fight and have the same strength of men. This is a lie of the devil. Joan's success was due to exactly 2 things 1) submission to God and His church which allowed the Holy Spirit to work in her. 2) Her ability to inspire MEN to fight for her cause.
Let's consider another view point that historians put forth:
Historians have debated Joan's contributions for centuries. Bernard Montgomery fenced his opinion by stating that he never determined "whether Joan had any God-given military ability herself or whether she was merely a tool in the hands of the French generals."15 By "tool," Montgomery meant that Joan merely inspired men to fight and contributed little else. It is true that Joan inspired. In most of her engagements, she carried a white banner that depicted Jesus, the Virgin Mary, and two angels. This banner was easily recognizable by the French and their opponents. Circumstances--whether they were miraculous or just great war stories--showed that her aggressive approach inspired the French and frightened the English. While trying to lift the siege at Orléans, there were several instances where Joan inspired the troops to press their fight in the midst of panic. On May 4, the French attacked an English fortification without Joan. As she rushed to the frontlines, "she found many wounded, which distressed her greatly."16 Seeing the gruesome sight of retreating, wounded troops must have discouraged her as it would any soldier, but she pressed on and pushed the French to continue their attack. They took the fort and "many English were killed."17 During an attack on another English fort outside Orléans, an arrow hit Joan above the breast in plain sight of everyone in the battle. While Joan had her wounds dressed, the French, who had been attacking all day long, faltered. As her troops were retreating, Joan returned, stuck her banner on the edge of the ditch surrounding the fort, and declared, "[T]here should be no retreat."18 Both the French and English soldiers who previously thought she was dead--or at least mortally wounded--were shocked. The French gained courage and attacked; the English were afraid and fled. Joan's troops took the fort with little resistance. Most of the English drowned in their retreat when they crowded a weak bridge that collapsed over the Loire River. There is precedence for a military commander encouraging troops with his mere presence at the front lines. Julius Caesar bragged how his presence at a battle in Gaul gave "fresh heart and hope" to his troops and "each man wanted to do his best under the eyes of his commander-in-chief."19 Joan with her banner had a stronger effect, because she not only brought courage to her men, but she also instilled fear in her opponents. At Montépilloy, an open-field battle, Joan struggled to get the English and the Burgundians to leave their defensive positions. Joan rode out and taunted her opponents, but the commander would not order an attack "for he feared that his army would be demoralized at the sight of Joan's banner."20
This intimidation factor followed Joan from May through September 1429, where more than thirty cities surrendered without a fight. These cities, however, had more to fear than Joan's banner. By July, the French had killed upwards of 3,500 English troops.21 Before Joan fought her first battle, she sent a letter to the English demanding that they surrender all their French cities and leave the continent. Those that did "not obey, I shall have them all killed."22 These were not empty threats. At the Siege of Jargeau, 700 English troops defended the town for two days. After the first night of fighting, Joan demanded the town's capitulation or "you will be massacred."23 The English refused and Joan's cannons bombarded the town. Eventually, the French assaulted the walls and killed as many as 1,100 people, which means the dead included English troops and French civilians.24 This was not the only incident of massacres that Joan left in her trail and word of these events surely preceded her throughout France. Joan and her banner inspired her troops and struck fear in her enemies, but the massacres certainly aided her in the thirty-plus bloodless capitulations.
I can not even imagine how horrified Joan must be from Heaven that the feminists have made her a poster child for their satanic and disordered campaign, which is the complete opposite of everything she fought for.
Saint Joan of Arc pray for us, and help us to restore proper and divine order here on Earth!
Many mystics and even scripture itself supports this idea that prior to the arrival of the anti-christ (the ultimate persecutor) there will be cataclysmic events that will shake the created order though natural disasters, wars, and spiritual attacks by satan and his minions who will extraordinary power. Many Marian apparitions speak to the chastisements that will come due to man's sinfulness (La Salette, Fatima, Akita, Our Lady of the Good Event to name a few), and the fact that satan and his minions have corrupted society through the free masonic sects (Our Lady of the Good Event). The recourse we have to mitigate these chastisements are prayer (the rosary in particular), penance, living a Christian life, sacrifice and suffering.

Many mystics hold to the notion of a satanic century or era within the 5th epoch of which Venerable Holhauzer tells us we are living but for simplicities sake I will summarize only a few:
As a general overview this is a summary of Venerable Holzhauser's timeline of epochs of which we are in the 5th, bordering on the 6th and Satan is not happy about it. He notes that the 6th and 7th epochs will be very short.
1) The first age or special epoch of the Church begins with Jesus Christ and lasts until the first persecution under the pagan emperor, Nero.
2) The second, from Nero to Constantine the Great
3) The third, from Constantine to Charlemagne
4) The fourth, from Charlemagne to Charles V, the pontificate of Leo X., and the heresy of Martin Luther
5) The fifth age, from Luther up until.. (other mystics have stated that this will last until around the mid 21st century)
6) The sixth age, which begin with the arrival of the Great Monarch and Angelic Pontiff – this will be the Age of Concolation for the Church, the promised Age of Peace. The Age of Peace of the Sixth Age will end with the rise of the Antichrist, but the Sixth Age itself won't end until the Second Coming of Christ.
7) The seventh will introduce the elect to the 'eternal sabbath' – i.e. The Second Coming of Christ when the Last Day occurs, the Last Judgement takes place and Eternity begins with the New Heaven and the New Earth.
This is what he has to say about the 5th Epoch that we are currently in:
“The fifth period of the Church, which began circa 1520, will end with the arrival of the holy Pope and of the powerful Monarch who is called "Help From God" because he will restore everything [in Christ]…”
“The fifth period is one of affliction, desolation, humiliation, and poverty for the Church. Jesus Christ will purify His people through cruel wars, famines, plagues, epidemics, and other horrible calamities. He will also afflict and weaken the Latin Church with many heresies. It is a period of defections, calamities and exterminations. Those Christians who survive the sword, plague and famines, will be few on earth. Nations will fight against nations and will be desolated by internecine dissensions…”
“During this period the Wisdom of God guides the Church in. several ways: 1) by chastising the Church so that riches may not corrupt her completely; 2) by interposing the Council of Trent like a light in the darkness, so that the Christians who see the light may know what to believe, 3) by setting St. Ignatius and his Society in opposition to Luther and other heretics (i.e note the Jesuits were a force to be reckoned with in oppsoing the Lutheran heresies at the time, hence it is no wonder they came under such attack later) ; 4) by carrying to remote lands the Faith which has been banned in most of Europe…”
(NOTE: while this interpretation starts with the beginning of the Fifth period which means the rise of Luther, Ven. Holzhauser obvsiouly predicted that the heresies Luther started would continue to wreak havoc and grow until the Great Monarch and Angelic Pontiff bring about the restoration of the Church hence - the COUNCIL OF TRENT not only was but will continue to be a guiding light in the time of darkness of the Church. According to Ven. Holzhuaser then, those who stay true to the declarations of the Council of Trent will not be led astray from the true Faith. Of interest, Bl. Catherine of Racconigi predicted that the aims of the Council of Trent would be fully accomplished with the arrival of Great Monarch and Angelic Pontiff.)
“During this period, many men will abuse the freedom of conscience conceded to them. It is of such men that Jude the Apostle spoke when he said, ‘These men blaspheme whatever they do not understand; and they corrupt whatever they know naturally as irrational animals do… They feast together without restraint, feeding themselves, grumbling murmurers, walking according to their
lusts; their mouth speaketh proud things, they admire people for the sake of gain; they bring about division, sensual men, having not the spirit.’”
“During this unhappy period, there will be laxity in divine and human precepts. Discipline will suffer. The Holy Canons will be completely disregarded, and the Clergy will not respect the laws of the Church. Everyone will be carried away and led to believe and to do what he fancies,according to the manner of the flesh…”
“They will ridicule Christian simplicity; they will call it folly and nonsense, but they will have the highest regard for advanced knowledge, and for the skill by which the axioms of the law, the precepts of morality, the Holy Canons and religious dogmas are clouded by senseless questions and elaborate arguments. As a result, no principle at all, however holy, authentic, ancient, and certain it may be, will remain free of censure, criticism, false interpretation, modification, and delimitation by man…”
(NOTE: apparently, Ven. Holzhausuer's comments on the time of corruption before the renewal of the Church. The world will grow corrupt and the Church will also fall into decay as it turns on its ancient Traditions and twists it to suit the times. Note the word 'modification'.)
“These are evil times, a century full of dangers and calamities. Heresy is everywhere, and the followers of heresy are in power almost everywhere. Bishops, prelates, and priests say that they are doing their duty, that they are vigilant, and that they live as befits their state in life. In like manner, therefore, they all seek excuses. But God will permit a great evil against His Church: Heretics and tyrants will come suddenly and unexpectedly; they will break into the Church while bishops, prelates and priests are asleep. They will enter Italy and lay Rome waste; they will burn down the churches and destroy everything.…”
“The Great Monarch will come when the Latin Church is desolated, humiliated, and afflicted with many heresies….”
(OBSERVATION: Ven. Holzhauser notes this period of degradation will LAST A CENTURY. He predicts this century of heretical intrusions and moral laxity int he Church will apparently be nearing its climax or basically reaching its end when ROME IS BURNED AND LAID WASTE. In another prediction, Ven. Holzhauser says Satan will be bound for a time when the Great Monarch comes, which means SATAN will be given liberty BEFORE ROME BURNS AND THE RENEWAL BEGINS. So, could this be another prediction of 'SATAN's CENTURY' as foreseen by Pope Leo XIII? If so, re will be nearing the end of Satan's Century when Rome burns and is laid waste.)
Which brings us to:
One of the private revelations that most stands out in regard to this pre anti-christ era is a vision given to Pope Leo VIII
On October 13, 1884, Pope Leo XIII had a remarkable vision 33 years before the Miracle of the Sun would take place at Fatima.
When the aged Pontiff had finished celebrating Mass in his private Vatican Chapel, attended by a few Cardinals and members of the Vatican staff, he suddenly stopped at the foot of the altar. He stood there for about ten minutes, as if in a trance, his face white. Some accounts are more dramatic, saying he collapsed in shock and looked as is he were dead. After this strange incident, he immediately went from the Chapel to his office where he composed the now famous prayer to St. Michael, with instructions it be said after all Low Masses everywhere.
When asked what had happened, he explained that, as he was about to leave the foot of the altar, he suddenly heard voices - two voices, one kind and gentle, the other guttural and harsh. They seemed to come from near the tabernacle. As he listened, he heard the following conversation:
The guttural voice, the voice of Satan in his pride, boasted to Our Lord: "I can destroy your Church."
The gentle voice of Our Lord: "You can? Then go ahead and do so."
Satan: "To do so, I need more time and more power."
Our Lord: "How much time? How much power?
Satan: "75 to 100 years, and a greater power over those who will give themselves over to my service."
Our Lord: "You have the time, you will have the power. Do with them what you will."
Some accounts tell that Pope Leo also saw the 'demonic century', the wars, the genocides and the schisms that would occur, the demons attacking the Church, and finally, witnessing St. Michael casting them down.
In 1886, Pope Leo XIII decreed that this prayer to St. Michael be said at the end of "low" Mass (not "high", or sung Masses) throughout the universal Church, along with the Salve Regina (Hail, Holy Queen); also three Hail Mary's and the prayer 'O God, Our Refuge and Our Strength'.
Another profound mystic that does not get nearly enough recognition is Marie-Julie Jahenny (1850-1941)
You can read her prophecies here greatmonarch-angelicpontiffprophecies.blogspot.com/p/blog-page_62.html
She had this to say about our times:
Marie-Julie Jahenny saw in a vision that when Christ ascended into Heaven, Satan appeared before Him and demanded more power. He was promised a period of freedom and would be left free to tempt mankind without limit. His evil conquests would be so great that his followers would exceed those of Our Lord - the peak of Satan's triumph would come when civil war breaks out in Europe -( the disastrous anti-clerical civil war that would start in Paris and spread through France.) Marie-Julie was told they were ALREADY IN SATAN'S AGE - (August 30, 1880)
The ABYSS (HELL) IS WORKING ON EARTH - Leading souls to hell. (July 30, 1925)
The Lord will grant complete freedom and power to the evil ones for a time - (August 19, 1878)
(Marie-Julie was told they would be granted their complete freedom 'soon' - this warning came 5 years before Pope Leo XIII would receive his famous vision of 'Satan's Century' in 1883)
The length of this great freedom given to Satan is also a WARNING - if they are granted great freedom, God is also reserving a punishment for them as equal to the freedom they were allowed to have: (August 18, 1878)
The people of the earth will have grown so evil and corrupt and have such a lack of faith, that even if God and Our Lady were to work more marvellous wonders than those seen in Judea during Our Lord's life, or any miracle of the past, the people would not convert. Therefore, God will not send marvels, but blows and decimation to cleanse an unbelieving generation. (Sept. 16, 1904)
Demons will congregate - MANY IN THE FORM OF MAN - they will bring about false miracles- many of these demons even wear even the habits of the true servants of God - they will have a strange, ferocious hunger for human flesh and blood - they crave the death and bloodshed of the true faithful - (i.e they plot the genocidal persecution.) (Sept. 29, 1880)
NOW IS THE TIME TO DECLARE WHAT SIDE YOU ARE ON - either to live and die in the Catholic Faith, or to choose the side of the enemies. "It is time to look up to Heaven because in all the corners of the Earth YOU WILL FIND THE ANTICHRISTS, AS IN THE TIME OF THE LAST JUDGEMENT, that will travel the whole world to pervert, to weaken by their threats the faith of Christians." (Sept. 20, 1881)
A FALSE APOSTATE RELIGION RESEMBLING ISLAM WILL BE ESTABLISHED by force by authorities - Catholics who have lost grace will happily enter into it. It will be a 'happy happy' religion of a 'merry heart' that will be completely divested of the Sacraments of the Church. To escape the threat of death and the sufferings cause by persecutions, many will enter into this false religion to save themselves. Many bishops will enter and lead souls to Hell. The youth will be spoiled at this time - the purification of souls will be terrible. (June 9, 1881)
A NEW DIABOLICAL 'WORSHIP SERVICE or universal ECUMENICAL STYLE service will be introduced by Satan - the ministers shall wear red cloaks, or simply red, they will have a little bread and water for the service, but no valid consecration. They will be permitted to say it everywhere, under the open sky, and in 'all houses' (i.e possibly a cryptic reference to all places and churches of worship of all denominations) (June 28, 1880) (NOTE: no wine is mentioned as part of this service - this would fit with the Islamic-like new religion that will be forced upon people as wine is forbidden in Islam.)
Her prophecies seem to carry a theme that France will experience all the chastisements first as she is the eldest daughter of the church and the birth place of the false enlightenment was France with its French Revolution. She further goes on to describe chastisements and warnings for France, Rome, and the church which there is not room to get into here but they involve a period of terrifying events including the three days of darkness and whole nations seemingly being destroyed as punishment for our anti-christian ways.
Times will get increasingly worse but do not fear...help is on the way!

I came home from Iraq in 2010 at the age of just 20 years old. like many of my generation, I struggled for years with trying to find my place in the world (sometimes with disastrous consequences). I often felt restless and that everything I was ever going to do paled in comparison to the war I had just been a part of. Oh how wrong I was. The Lord in all of his mercy woke me up to the fact that the most important battle I will ever fight is one that can't always be seen; The one for my soul and for the souls around me. It is against powers and principalities who influence the earthly enemies I had just encountered. Over the last 5 years or so, I have become intimately aware of this battle, and more importantly how to fight it! Although the weapons are different, the concepts are the same. My mission is now to share my knowledge with others, especially my fellow combat veterans who are struggling in the midsts of dysfunction or an identity crisis. I assure you brothers and sisters, we are in the fight of our lives.
