Apocalyptic Reflection


Ferocious rain whips against this old wooden house as thunder rumbles and lightning flashes apocalyptically across the night sky. What is it about Stations of the Cross on a Texan Thursday evening that brings this on. I don't know, I can't fathom the ways of our old enemy the Weather, but it seems appropriate to this evening's devotion.

After all, what is the crucifixion if not the seeming triumph of Antichrist and with that we're reminded of a bestial number, a threefold series of sixes. St. John casts light on infernal mathematics in his Gospel.

At the sixth hour Christ is met by the harlot at the well. Again at the sixth hour, the followers of Caiaphas the false prophet stamp themselves with the mark of the beast, crying out, "We have no king but Caesar." Then darkness falls upon the land at the sixth hour as Jesus hangs dying on Calvary.

There it is, 666 and the character of Antichrist spelled out, whorish infidelity, idolatrous irreligion, and the murderous extinction of life itself. Such is Satan's revolt against God and the serpent appeared to have won, but not so fast.

The Samaritan woman at the well repents and becomes a great evangelist and martyr, St. Photina, in receipt of living water. The false prophets are swept away and the darkness of the cross gives out to the light of Easter and the empty tomb. Life, light and truth win over the deathly night of the beast.

All this played out in Christ's life, setting the template, model, figure and type of the final battle between good and evil. Every day draws us closer to this point and with it the lines are ever more clearly drawn and distinct. Hasten to enlist on the right side of this divide.

In the meanwhile, thunder and lightning crash down with the very force of the Eschaton itself.

Here endeth the Lesson,

The Democratic Socialist’s and the Progressive Leftist Media Dread the news that is coming out NOW As Tucker Carlson has been Fully Revealing the January 6th Truth. The ENTIRE Truth is finally coming out, now that Tucker Carlson has the entire video.
The J6 Committee, especially Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, and Liz Cheney now claiming they never had access to any security footage.. The Police "acted as tour guide" , The lies keep coming. They're shitting their pants now that the media has access to all the footage. The entire committee’s sham needs to be investigated..They All have been caught red-handed denying these defendants of their civil rights and that's the best that they can do. Those people should not be in prison, the Capital Police officers were actually opening locked doors to let the protesters in. They actually gave the Viking guy a tour of the building..

Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, and Liz Cheney and many of the others should be in prison instead of the protesters.
Now, I'm waiting for the segment when the BLM supporting Capital Cop shot That Poor Unarmed Woman Ashli Babbitt, and Murdered her..

Thank you Tucker Carlson for showing us the truth. And now the far left can realize there WAS NO INSURRECTION It was all a Democratic Scam!

Well it's all a bit odd, Chic. If it was such a heinous insurrection, which of course it was, why did the very people entrusted with the defense of our nation allow the seditionists into the hallowed halls of our Capitol.

Were they traitors?

Reflect, meanwhile, on their number.
