Evil Portent For NASA & Hollywood
NASA Meets Hollywood
Two Evil Portents
For at what stage would that passion rest when once it has lodged in a proud spirit, until by a succession of advances it has reached even the throne. And to obtain such advances nothing avails but unscrupulous ambition. But unscrupulous ambition has nothing to work upon, save in a nation corrupted by avarice and luxury. Moreover, a people becomes avaricious and luxurious by prosperity; and it was this which that very prudent man Nasica was endeavouring to avoid when he opposed the destruction of the greatest, strongest, wealthiest city of Rome's enemy. He thought that thus fear would act as a curb on lust, and that lust being curbed would not run riot in luxury, and that luxury being prevented avarice would be at an end; and that these vices being banished, virtue would flourish and increase the great profit of the state; and liberty, the fit companion of virtue, would abide unfettered. For similar reasons, and animated by the same considerate patriotism, that same chief pontiff of yours— I still refer to him who was adjudged Rome's best man without one dissenting voice— threw cold water on the proposal of the senate to build a circle of seats round the theatre, and in a very weighty speech warned them against allowing the luxurious manners of Greece to sap the Roman manliness, and persuaded them not to yield to the enervating and emasculating influence of foreign licentiousness. So authoritative and forcible were his words, that the senate was moved to prohibit the use even of those benches which hitherto had been customarily brought to the theatre for the temporary use of the citizens. How eagerly would such a man as this have banished from Rome the scenic exhibitions themselves, had he dared to oppose the authority of those whom he supposed to be gods! For he did not know that they were malicious devils; or if he did, he supposed they should rather be propitiated than despised. For there had not yet been revealed to the Gentiles the heavenly doctrine which should purify their hearts by faith, and transform their natural disposition by humble godliness, and turn them from the service of proud devils to seek the things that are in heaven, or even above the heavens.
Know then, you who are ignorant of this, and you who feign ignorance be reminded, while you murmur against Him who has freed you from such rulers, that the scenic games, exhibitions of shameless folly and license, were established at Rome, not by men's vicious cravings, but by the appointment of your gods. Much more pardonably might you have rendered divine honors to Scipio than to such gods as these. The gods were not so moral as their pontiff. But give me now your attention, if your mind, inebriated by its deep notations of error, can take in any sober truth. The gods enjoined that games be exhibited in their honor to stay a physical pestilence; their pontiff prohibited the theatre from being constructed, to prevent a moral pestilence. If, then, there remains in you sufficient mental enlightenment to prefer the soul to the body, choose whom you will worship. Besides, though the pestilence was stayed, this was not because the voluptuous madness of stage-plays had taken possession of a warlike people hitherto accustomed only to the games of the circus; but these astute and wicked spirits, foreseeing that in due course the pestilence would shortly cease, took occasion to infect, not the bodies, but the morals of their worshippers, with a far more serious disease. And in this pestilence these gods find great enjoyment, because it benighted the minds of men with so gross a darkness and dishonored them with so foul a deformity, that even quite recently (will posterity be able to credit it?) some of those who fled from the sack of Rome and found refuge in Carthage, were so infected with this disease, that day after day they seemed to contend with one another who should most madly run after the actors in the theatres.
Oh infatuated men, what is this blindness, or rather madness, which possesses you? How is it that while, as we hear, even the eastern nations are bewailing your ruin, and while powerful states in the most remote parts of the earth are mourning your fall as a public calamity, you yourselves should be crowding to the theatres, should be pouring into them and filling them; and, in short, be playing a madder part now than ever before? This was the foul plague-spot, this the wreck of virtue and honor that Scipio sought to preserve you from when he prohibited the construction of theatres; this was his reason for desiring that you might still have an enemy to fear, seeing as he did how easily prosperity would corrupt and destroy you. He did not consider that republic flourishing whose walls stand, but whose morals are in ruins. But the seductions of evil-minded devils had more influence with you than the precautions of prudent men. Hence the injuries you do, you will not permit to be imputed to you: but the injuries you suffer, you impute to Christianity. Depraved by good fortune, and not chastened by adversity, what you desire in the restoration of a peaceful and secure state, is not the tranquillity of the commonwealth, but the impunity of your own vicious luxury. Scipio wished you to be hard pressed by an enemy, that you might not abandon yourselves to luxurious manners; but so abandoned are you, that not even when crushed by the enemy is your luxury repressed. You have missed the profit of your calamity; you have been made most wretched, and have remained most profligate. St. Augustine City of God
Hollywood has served us a bit of Hell. Hollywood has spread a great moral pestilence over the land for the last 100 years. Now the game is up. Following this great modern day moral pestilence a physical pestilence will soon follow.
The above quote is from book I of the City of God chapters 31-33. Important to post all three chapters to understand that the pagan Romans were first tormented with physical pestilences, allowed by the Blessed Trinity to punish the errors of the pagans. Hell was allowed to spread the physical pestilences and Hell did a good job.
According to St. Augustine in order to rid themselves of the physical pestilence many Romans built theaters believing that that the gods enjoined the immoral games exhibited in their honor. The more immoral plays on display and the more Romans in attendance at these immoral plays honoring their gods would help stay the physical pestilence.
Scipio prohibited the theatre from being constructed, to prevent a moral pestilence.
The honor given to their gods stayed the physical pestilence, but because the Romans did not listen to Scipio and a greater moral pestilence followed.
Interesting to note is the role that hell played in first inflicting the physical pestilence only to stop it in order to inflict the Romans with a greater moral pestilence.
Ordering of torments:
1. Physical pestilence
2. Moral pestilence
The Blessed Trinity allowed the Romans to be tormented by one pestilence at a time using hell to spread first: the physical pestilence and then the greater moral pestilence.
In 2012 the ordering of pestilence is reversed. What the Romans suffered first, we will suffer second.
I hope you understand this. America is tormented by a great moral pestilence. This is the first pestilence.
The physical pestilence is yet to appear. Do you understand this?
If not, it is because the lot of you believe that you are healthy enough no to suffer any type of physical pestilence.
But the Blessed Mother has said differently. You will suffer.
The Mother of God warns the modern world of the coming physical pestilence:
"Both physical and moral punishments will be suffered. God will abandon men to themselves and will send chastisements one after the other for over 35 years." Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
"The earth will be struck with plagues of all kinds;" [Mélanie added here: "Besides pestilence and famine, which will be widespread"] "there will be wars up to the last war," Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
"Woe to the inhabitants of the earth. There will be bloody wars, and famines; plagues and contagious diseases" Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
"If you have corn, you must not sow it. The beasts will eat all that you sow. And all that grows will fall to dust when you thresh it. A great famine will come. Before the famine comes, children under the age of seven will begin to tremble and will die in the arms of those who hold them. The others will do penance through hunger. The nuts will go bad, the grapes will become rotten." Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)The words of Our Lady have yet to be fulfilled. The physical pestilence is now upon us. Hollywood has served its purpose in spreading the Moral pestilence, it is time for the demise of Hollywood. Hollywood is no longer needed. This is the meaning of Evil Portent For Hollywood Fulfilled.
Get ready to suffer by physical pestilence. Hollywood, you are no longer needed.
As for NASA it has reached the height of man's pride. The tower of Babel was destroyed by God and God will destroy the modern day space Industry as well. God will put man back in his place.
You may read many articles written by evangelicals comparing NASA to the tower of Babel, but none of these articles tell you why NASA is similar to the Tower of Babel other than to point out the money spent by NASA etc....
There is a reason for comparing NASA to the Tower of Babel and that is found in the work of St. Thomas Aquinas and the doctrine of the fire of the final conflagration.
The doctrine of the fire of the final conflagration is a Roman Catholic doctrine, it is not a protestant doctrine, simply because all of protestantism is in error, so many protestant will not pick up on this doctrine, it will not make sense to them.
The doctrine is very simple - all the works of men have to be burnt up in the fire of the final conflagration in order to cleanse the world of all sin. According to St Thomas, original sin has infected the world, original sin has touched everything in this world and has to be cleansed at the end of days. Nothing will escape this cleansing. Everything must be cleansed afrom the stain of original sin, and the fire from the bowels of the earth will be the cleansing instrument.
This cleansing fire is the same fire that burns right now in the pit of hell that torments those who you once loved and this is the same fire that purifies those souls in purgatory so that one day they can reach their final end - the final beatitude.
This cleansing fire still has one more work to at the end of days. Now in order to cleanse all the sinful works of man, all man-made works shot into space have to be brought back to this world. Why?
The cleansing fire of the final conflagration will come from the bowels of the earth to reach a height no greater than the height that the waters of the deluged reached, and that is 29, 051 ft or approximately 15 cubits above the highest mountain top.
This fire will not come from the Sun, nor will it rise from the bowels of the earth to exceed the 29,051 ft boundary. This means that all the works of men must be at this 29,051 ft level or below in order to be cleansed. This is the work that the fire will do - burn up everything so that no stain of original sin remains, and in order to do this God will bring back everything that man every shot into space.
Greater detail on the doctrine of the final conflagration of St Thomas follows:
According to St. Thomas Aquinas, the fire of the final conflagration will destroy all the works of men. Every single work by the hand of man will be cleansed by the fire of the final conflagration - St. Thomas Aquinas tells us: "that since the world was, in a way, made for man's sake, it follows that, when man shall be glorified in the body, the other bodies of the world shall also be changed to a better state, so that it is rendered a more fitting place for him and more pleasant to look upon. Now in order that man obtain the glory of the body, it behooves first of all those things to be removed which are opposed to glory. There are two, namely the corruption and stain of sin---because according to 1 Cor. 15:50, "neither shall corruption possess incorruption," and all the unclean shall be without the city of glory (Apoc. 22:15)---and again, the elements require to be cleansed from the contrary dispositions, ere they be brought to the newness of glory, proportionately to what we have said with regard to man. Now although, properly speaking, a corporeal thing cannot be the subject of the stain of sin, nevertheless, on account of sin corporeal things contract a certain unfittingness for being appointed to spiritual purposes; and for this reason we find that places where crimes have been committed are reckoned unfit for the performance of sacred actions therein, unless they be cleansed beforehand. Accordingly that part of the world which is given to our use contracts from men's sins a certain unfitness for being glorified, wherefore in this respect it needs to be cleansed. In like manner with regard to the intervening space, on account of the contact of the elements, there are many corruptions, generations and alterations of the elements, which diminish their purity: wherefore the elements need to be cleansed from these also, so that they be fit to receive the newness of glory."
St. Thomas Aquinas tells us that fire will be the cleansing instrument: "As stated above (A) this cleansing of the world will remove from it the stain contracted from sin, and the impurity resulting from mixture, and will be a disposition to the perfection of glory; and consequently in this threefold respect it will be most fitting for it to be effected by fire. First, because since fire is the most noble of the elements, its natural properties are more like the properties of glory, and this is especially clear in regard to light. Secondly, because fire, on account of the efficacy of its active virtue, is not as susceptible as the other elements to the admixture of a foreign matter. Thirdly, because the sphere of fire is far removed from our abode; nor are we so familiar with the use of fire as with that of earth, water, and air, so that it is not so liable to depreciation. Moreover, it is most efficacious in cleansing and in separating by a process of rarefaction."
St. Thomas Aquinas tells us that this fire will not exceed the bounds which were cleansed by waters of the deluge: "I answer that, Some [*St. Bonaventure, Sentent. iv, D, 47, A, Q] say that the fire in question will rise to the summit of the space containing the four elements: so that the elements would be entirely cleansed both from the stain of sin by which also the higher parts of the elements were infected (as instanced by the smoke of idolatry which stained the higher regions), and again from corruption, since the elements are corruptible in all their parts. But this opinion is opposed to the authority of Scripture, because it is written (2 Pet. 3:7) that those heavens are "kept in store unto fire," which were cleansed by water; and Augustine says (De Civ. Dei xx, 18) that "the same world which perished in the deluge is reserved unto fire." Now it is clear that the waters of the deluge did not rise to the summit of the space occupied by the elements, but only 15 cubits above the mountain tops; and moreover it is known that vapors or any smoke whatever rising from the earth cannot pierce the entire sphere of fire so as to reach its summit; and so the stain of sin did not reach the aforesaid space. Nor can the elements be cleansed from corruptibility by the removal of something that might be consumed by fire: whereas it will be possible for the impurities of the elements arising from their mingling together to be consumed by fire. And these impurities are chiefly round about the earth as far as the middle of the air: wherefore the fire of the final conflagration will cleanse up to that point, since the waters of the deluge rose to a height which can be approximately calculated from the height of the mountains which they surpassed in a fixed measure."
Now it stands to reason that if what St. Thomas Aquinas states is true:
1. that fire of the final conflagration will not exceed the bounds which were cleansed by waters of the deluge (only 15 cubits above the mountain tops)
2. and all of the sinful works of men are to be destroyed in this final conflagration.
Then all of the works of men will one day occupy or reach a height no greater than the 15 cubits above the mountain tops, which was boundary of the waters of the deluge.
What follows then is that all modern man-made works that had left the orbit of the earth such as NASA's Mars Rover Spirit and all other spacecrafts will return to the place in which they were created, which will be below the boundary set by the waters of the deluge and that is 15 cubits above the mountain tops.
Again the Mars Rover Spirit along with all man-made space objects will one day return to the earth.
