Portugal’s Fires 2017: What the Pope Blesses, the Lord Curses

High Park fire

Shaun Willcock:

“And now, O ye priests, this commandment is for you.  If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith the Lord of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart.” (Malachi 2:1,2)

  In the Scripture above, the Lord sent a curse upon the Jewish priests, and cursed their blessings.  For they were false priests.  This can mean He cursed what they had been blessed with; but also, that He cursed the blessings they pronounced on others.

The priests of Rome are false priests as well.  The only difference is that the Jewish priesthood was ordained of God for a specific time and purpose, whereas the Romish priesthood never was.  And if the Lord cursed the blessings of the Jewish priests, He most certainly curses the blessings of the priests of Rome.  Most especially, He curses that which the pope of Rome, the great high priest of the greatest false religion which has ever existed, blesses.

In June 2017 the sovereign Lord, once again, cursed what the Roman Antichrist blessed, when the worst fires in Portugal’s history swept through its central region.

Does the reader see the hand of God in what occurred in Portugal?  It should make one’s hair stand on end, and humble one into the dust before God!

For Francis I arrived in Portugal in May 2017, being welcomed by the country’s president and adoringly followed by vast crowds of Roman Catholic faithful.  His purpose for being in the country?  To “canonise” two of the three shepherd children who, at Fatima in Portugal a hundred years ago in 1917, claimed to have received visits from the Virgin Mary and messages from her.  I recently wrote a detailed article examining the so-called Fatima apparitions, entitled The Lying “Lady” of Fatima: Seers and Secrets, Deception and Delusion, and the Politics of Global Power.[1]  The reader is urged to carefully read that article.  The entire Fatima deception is all to do with increasing the power of the Vatican over the earth.

And in June – just a month after the papal visit – central Portugal experienced a series of deadly wildfires, with the largest loss of life due to such fires in Portugal’s history!  Dozens perished in the flames, many dying as they tried to flee in their cars.  So great was the catastrophe that Spain, France and Italy sent water-dropping planes, and the EU and UN also pledged assistance.  The Portuguese prime minister said, “The fire has reached a level of human tragedy that we have never seen before.”  And a local mayor of one of the affected areas said, “It does not seem real, it is out of this world…. It is a real inferno, we have never seen anything like that.”

Note: Fatima is in central Portugal!  The fires were in Pedrogao Grande, a municipality in Leiria District.  The city of Leiria is the capital of Leiria District, and is also the seat of the Roman Catholic diocese of Leiria-Fatima.  It was in fact to the bishop of Leiria that one of the Fatima child “seers”, Lucia dos Santos, entrusted the so-called “third secret” of Fatima in a sealed envelope.  She had written it down on the orders of the bishop of Leiria.

Francis I visits Fatima, being welcomed by the Portuguese president; and a month later the Portuguese president is visiting the Leiria region to meet with the families of the victims of the devastating fires.  Coincidence?  Not in the least.  It was Divine judgment.  We feel deep compassion for and sympathy with the suffering people of Portugal at such a time of great tragedy.  Truly, the hearts of all should break when they consider the extent of the suffering and pain there.  But let us not be found speaking as the foolish, the ignorant, and atheistic speak, when they start blaming God or saying such stupid things as, “How could a loving God allow this?”  or, “How can there be a God?”  When men blaspheme the sovereign Lord of heaven and earth day and night; when they worship idols in direct violation of His holy Word; when they give heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils, and uphold the foolish lies of human beings as if they carried equal or greater weight than the Word of the living God; when they exalt a sinful man as the “Vicar of Christ” and believe him to be the representative of God on earth; when they cry out for this wicked man’s “blessing” and hang on his every word of blasphemy and idolatry; then at some point the judgment of God must fall, and often it has fallen very swiftly.  He says: “I am the Lord: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images” (Isa. 42:8).

On Anarchy and Guy Fawkes

Guy Fawkes before James VI and I

Continuing Counter Reformation on the motives of Guy Fawkes:

“While anarchists may be right that Fawkes was the only person ever to enter Parliament with honest intentions, they’ve forgotten what those intentions were. Fawkes wasn’t trying to destroy an evil theocracy, he was trying to install one.”

Clever Arminius

1187339_85389071“Questions about Arminius’ doctrine arose as early as 1590… By 1596, after studying Romans chapter 9, he concluded that… God has willed to accept those who seek acceptance with Him by faith. This was a clever move. He appeared to be defending justification by faith all the while redefining the doctrine of election and the definition of faith… Confessional pastors and theologians in the Netherlands and elsewhere began to sound the alarm. Dialogues were conducted and Arminius said the right things… Despite swirling doubts, the regents of the University of Leiden appointed Arminius to professor of theology. Almost immediately, Arminius was controversial. He was reported to teach that God elects those whom he foreknows would believe. He also raised questions about the Reformed doctrine of the covenant of works. In public, however, Arminius went out of his way to agree with his orthodox colleagues.”

Earth’s Record 41 Billion-Dollar Weather Disasters of 2013

Earth’s Record 41 Billion-Dollar Weather Disasters of 2013

Dr. Jeff Masters writes:

Earth set a new record for billion-dollar weather disasters in 2013 with 41, said insurance broker Aon Benfield in their Annual Global Climate and Catastrophe Report issued this week. Despite the record number of billion-dollar disasters, weather-related natural disaster losses (excluding earthquakes) were only slightly above average in 2013, and well below what occurred in 2012. That’s because 2013 lacked a U.S. mega-disaster like Hurricane Sandy ($65 billion in damage) or the 2012 drought ($30 billion in damage.) The most expensive global disaster of 2013 was the June flood in Central Europe, which cost $22 billion. The deadliest disaster was Super Typhoon Haiyan, which killed about 8,000 people in the Philippines. Six countries set records for most expensive weather-related disaster in their history, as tabulated by EM-DAT, the International Disaster Database, and adjusted for inflation:

Germany, June flooding, $16 billion. Previous record: $15 billion in damage from the August 2002 Elbe River floods.
Philippines, Super Typhoon Haiyan, $13 billion. Previous record: $2.2 billion, August 2013 floods near Manila.
Austria, June flooding, $4 billion. Previous record: $3.1 billion in damage from the August 2002 floods.
Czech Republic, June flooding, $1.5 billion. Previous record: $0.3 billion in damage from the August 2002 floods.
New Zealand, Jan – May Drought, $1.6 billion. Previous record: $0.3 billion, January 2001 heat wave.
Cambodia, Oct – Nov floods, $1 billion. Previous record: $0.5 billion, August 2011 flood.

The Truth: Why Are Millions Of Fish Suddenly Dying In Mass Death Events All Over The Planet?

1418624_98612786

Millions upon millions of fish are suddenly dying in mass death events all over the world, and nobody seems to know why it is happening.  In many of the news reports that are linked to below, locals are quoted as saying that they have never seen anything like this before.  So is there a connection between all of the fish deaths that are now occurring all over the planet?  If there is a connection, is there anything that we can do to stop the fish die-off?  Sadly, because the big mainstream news networks in the United States have been virtually silent about this phenomenon, most Americans have absolutely no idea that it is happening.  Millions of fish are dying in mass death events every single month and most of the public is totally clueless.

Impending Economic Collapse?

1155587_69316675Revelation 16:16-19:

And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon [a primarily spiritual battle against biblical Christianity acted out on earth through political and judicial decisions, employment conditions, social and cultural hostility towards biblical Christians, etc.].

And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.

And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great [earthquake = prophetic language for a drastic change or upheaval in the social, political, religious, and/or economic order].

And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell:…[quite possibly a global economic collapse]
