Zephaniah: “Be Catholic!”

Zep 3:1-2, 9-13 is a clear warning of what is coming. God is going to punish those who rebel against Him: “Thus says the LORD: Woe to the city, rebellious and polluted, to the tyrannical city! She hears no voice, accepts no correction; In the LORD she has not trusted, to her God she has not drawn near.”This describes every person and every denomination that has abandoned The Church Jesus Founded.

The Book of Revelation, Chapter 20 describes the “The Thousand Year Reign” of The Catholic Church over Christendom. That age ended with Luther and the fragmentation of The Only Church Jesus Founded by the dragon from the Abyss. Luther’s fragmentation of Catholic Europe into what are now 43,000 individual little schisms was followed by even worse heresies. After the Protestants brought division, the vainest of humans promised that they could provide all the enlightenment that anyone could need. Then, heretics in France and Russia brought murderous new governments into being, serving the idol of Equality with guillotines and gulags.

Now, hordes of haters invade nations that were once Catholic. We look in vain to our leaders for help. God has paralyzed them with fear and bribes. Destruction, slaughter, rape, pillaging, and slavery are inevitable. After the agony of realizing what will happen to their families, lives, and property, some will have enough sense to realize: “If we were faithful to The Only Church Jesus Founded, we would have the unity to stop evils like abortion and invasion. We did not do that. We divided our most moral and caring people into an insane 43,000 schisms. Each of them, we see now, was invented by a self-aggrandizing ego-maniac who didn’t care what damage he would do.”

Our only hope? That those intelligent enough to understand may return to The Church Jesus Founded.

“For then I will change and purify the lips of the peoples, That they all may call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one accord (and not an insane 43,000 Protestant schisms); From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia and as far as the recesses of the North, they shall bring me offerings.

God promises that His help cleanses us, inside and out. “On that day You need not be ashamed of all your deeds, your rebellious actions against me; For then will I remove from your midst the proud braggarts (those who invented their own religions and confused My people), And you shall no longer exalt yourself on my holy mountain.” (You will no longer call yourselves “believers” while refusing to actually believe in me, but worshiping your own vanities, instead.)

“But I will leave as a remnant in your midst a people humble and lowly, (Obedient Catholics!) Who shall take refuge in the name of the LORD: the remnant of Israel.
Those remaining will be obedient to The Only Church Jesus Founded. “They shall do no wrong and speak no lies; Nor shall there be found in their mouths a deceitful tongue; They shall pasture and couch their flocks with none to disturb them.” Zephaniah: “Be Catholic!”

The sooner that all who understand return, the sooner that death and destruction will stop. The longer we wait, the more of us and our children will suffer and die. Some do not care. Some ignore the promise of the very God in Whom they say they believe. The Prophet’s words should help us to heed the underlying warning of Zephaniah: “Be Catholic!” Pray that our Protestant friends understand before their divisions are the death of us all.
