Part 666 ... The Puppet Master

Delusions of Grandeur

Wikipedia defines "delusions of grandeur" as being:

Grandiose delusions (GD) or delusions of grandeur are a subtype of delusion that occur in patients suffering from a wide range of psychiatric diseases, including two-thirds of patients in manic state of bipolar disorder, half of those with schizophrenia, patients with the grandiose subtype of delusional disorder, and a substantial portion of those with substance abuse disorders. GDs are characterized by fantastical beliefs that one is famous, omnipotent, wealthy, or otherwise very powerful. The delusions are generally fantastic and typically have a religious, science fictional, or supernatural theme. There is a relative lack of research into GD, in contrast to persecutory delusions and auditory hallucinations. About 10% of healthy people experience grandiose thoughts but do not meet full criteria for a diagnosis of GD.

Symptoms

According to the DSM-IV-TR diagnostic criteria for delusional disorders, grandiose-type symptoms include grossly exaggerated beliefs of:

  • self-worth

  • power

  • knowledge

  • identity

  • exceptional relationship to a divinity or famous person.

For example, a patient who has fictitious beliefs about his or her power or authority may believe himself or herself to be a ruling monarch who deserves to be treated like royalty. There are substantial differences in the degree of grandiosity linked with grandiose delusions in different patients. Some patients believe they are God, the Queen of England, a president's son, a famous rock star, and so on. Others are not as expansive and think they are skilled sports-persons or great inventors.

Daemon’s delusion centered on the belief that he actually was a legitimately elected Abbot Superior of a Benedictine Monastery that the prophet Joseph, before his fall from grace, had been told by God would be the last “true” remnant of the Catholic Church on Earth, remaining so until Christ’s Second Coming. He believed with all his heart, mind and soul that he was now Joseph’s replacement, the chosen of God to receive divine revelation that, if heeded, would lead all souls who would listen, obey and tithe (donate) to their salvation.

To his credit … Daemon intentions, in the begining, were honorable and he didn’t take the responsibility he believed he had lightly. The weight of that responsibility, at times, caused him great physical and mental anguish. He was convinced that God was his "Guide and Stay".

Maahes enjoyed playing the “puppet master” and had Daemon dangling in any and all directions that he wanted him to go.

Eschatology (End-Times) was the first string Maahes pulled and Daemon responded accordingly, ignoring completely what Christ himself had said on the subjet.

Mathew 24: 36-39

(36) "But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only".

(37) "But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be".

(38) "For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,"

(39) "And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be".

Sowing the seed of “FEAR” into the hearts of the superstitious has always played well into the hands of theological charlatans. That strategy has worked successfully since the beginning of the world and will continue to work its darkened wonders until the world’s bitter end. Few there are who have ever read and understood that no one knows, not even the angels of heaven know the hour at which Christ will return. Only God knows. Man is simply instructed to live their lives accordingly to the laws handed down, preparing themselves to be worthy to meet their Lord and Savior on the day he returns in Glory.

Sacrifice

Daemon’s first official directive as the MHOSJ’s new Superior was the implicit adoption and implementation of the sedevacantist position; which was a complete 180° about face from what Joseph, the monastery’s founder, had professed. He willingly sacrificed the Lamb of God.

His second official directive was, as inane as the first, the immediate cessation of all forms of publically recognized “Pastoral Care” commonly administered by a priest (i.e. the mass, the sacraments including confession, marriages, funerals, etc.) as all existing priests who submitted to the will of the Vatican II Church were manifest heretics, like the Pope himself, and thus could NOT be associated with without incurring upon themselves a “mortal sin”. He sacrificed, once again, the Lamb of God.

All those who thought that these radically imposed changes would drastically reduce or cut off the verbal and financial support that the MHOSJ had been receiving from their loyal cyber congregation were rudely mistaken. The news actually increased the monastery’s internet popularity resulting in augmenting book store purchases and charitable donations.

“Jack Pot”, Maahes exclaimed while rubbing his hands together with glee.

Yet, it was not all to be fun and games. The outrage and outcry leveled at Daemon by the monastery’s “temporal” parishioners, the parish priest and the diocese proved to be more of a headache than he an anticipated. The local traditional Church authorities reported Daemon to the Holy See for his apostasy, heresy and schism and he was summarily excommunicated from the Universal Church. Of course, the decree meant nothing to Daemon as being a sedevacantist he didn’t recognize the Apostate Church’s authority over him.

It has been many years since the MHOSJ sold their premises, abandoning the church and ministry that Joseph had established out of his love for the theological disenfranchised members of a renegade Catholic Church. They fled the city and moved their “business of religion” out onto a rural farm far away from the accusing eyes of those temporal souls they had unjustly forsaken.

With Maahes still manipulating Daemon’s strings, the MHOSJ has successfully enlarged the scope of their cyber ministry internationally. They have chosen of their own free will to serve “the Beast”; becoming more adept and cunning in propagating their charismatic partial-truths designed to scatter Christ’s flock even further away from the truth of the Universal “Catholic” Church.

Daemon reign within the MHOSJ has not emulated the personage of Christ but rather that of the infamous compulsive and corrupt Roman Emperor who ruled from 54-68, Nero.

The first persecution of Christians organized by the Roman government took place under the rule of this first century tyrant. Edward Gibbon, in states in his book “The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire”, on page 309:

"By embracing the faith of the Gospel the Christians incurred the supposed guilt of an unnatural and unpardonable offence. They dissolved the sacred ties of custom and education, violated the religious institutions of their country, and presumptuously despised whatever their fathers had believed as true, or had reverenced as sacred".

Torches of Nero

Similarly, Daemon rules with an iron fist and seeks to impose unpardonable blame on all those who do not subscribe to the sedevacantist position; belittling and falsely accusing them of heresy.

Nero was rumored to have had captured Christians dipped in oil and set on fire in his garden at night as a source of light.

For his amusement, Daemon simple condemns all those he faults for questioning his obscure belief-system into the lakes of fire in hell.

Nero burned Rome. Daemon symbolically burns the cross.

Nero was finally driven from power and when a false rumor reached his ear that had been denounced as a public enemy of Rome and would be arrested and executed, he committed suicide on 9 June 68 (the first Roman emperor to do so).

Daemon, on the other hand, ruthlessly / narcissistically clings to power believing he is “God’s Chosen” but anyone, not living in the shadows of demonic possession, understands that it’s obviously not the God of Heaven that he serves. He has not only served his master by fooling thousands upon thousands to follow him into the abyss … but he has also fooled himself and thus has sealed his fate.

Matthew 7:21-23

(21) “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of My Father in heaven”.

(22) “Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’”

(23) “Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you workers of lawlessness.’”…

As Joseph was a physical cripple, Daemon has become a “spiritual cripple” and limps along following in the footstep of “the Beast” who beckons him, doing his bidding, persecuting true Christians for their traditional beliefs.

The Beast / Anti-Christ

Maahes is proud of whom and what Daemon has become; as they both now are in sync and serve the same master and his insidious plan. And that plan is designed to entice and coax “scattered sheep” everywhere into seeing a “Good Shepherd” where there actually is none. But Daemon is only one of many “Butchers of Souls”, spread out across the internet, employed in the service of the “Beast”.

Well then, who is this “Beast” and what is his name?

One who understands can calculate the number of the beast, for it is a number that stands for a person. His number is six hundred and sixty-six” (Rev. 13:18)

In Hebrew numerology of “Gematria” the name Nero Caesar is calculated as the number 666. The saying goes “Caesar is Rome and Rome is Caesar” … an adulterous, abominable, idolatrous epic time in History, not so different from the state of the world today.

It should be remembered that the book of Revelation was written by the apostle John on the island of Patmos (around the year 95 A.D.). Only John knew who he was actually referring to in Rev. 13:18.

The antichrist (Beast) has been active in the world since the first century. It is ludicrous to be looking for signs now. St. John noted this fact, "But every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world" (1 John 4:3)

Isn’t it high time to wake up / shake yourself free from the hypnotic rhetoric, mischievous partial-truths, falsehoods and blasphemies rendered by the likes of Daemon; which are intended to sow fear into the hearts of traditional Catholics who are insecure in matters of their “Faith” since the Vatican II Council?

Why should you fear the “End Times”? The “End-Times” commenced with the crucifixion and “death” of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, nearly 2 millennia ago, and will be terminated with His “resurrection”; which remains futuristic, as only God knows when that date will be (Mathew 24: 36-39).

End Times

But for the curious, let it be known that the traditional Catholic Church has NEVER instructed us to shun the study of “End Times”. We have merely been instructed to approach any end-time prophecy with a critical / prayer filled eye.

The study should edify the soul

Studying end time prophets should draw us closer to God, not away from Him. It should not bring on a morbid preoccupation of the end times, to the exclusion of Christian charity and duties. It should not lead you to wish for or seek the damnation of others or to hasten destruction of the world, etc.

Amos 5:18

Woe to you who desire the day of the Lord! For what good is the day of the Lord to you? It will be darkness, and not light”.

The study should not lead to Errors of Faith

The study of end time prophecies should not lead you into beliefs contrary to the teaching of the Holy Catholic Church. You should be suspicious of any revelation that purports or promotes dogmatic errors.

Deuteronomy 13:1-3

(1) "If there arises among you a prophet or a dreamer of dreams, and he gives you a sign or a wonder",

(2) "and the sign or the wonder comes to pass, of which he spoke to you, saying, ‘Let us go after other gods’—which you have not known—‘and let us serve them,’"

(3) “you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams, for the Lord your God is testing you to know whether you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul”.

Beware of false prophets! How many times do you have to be warned?

False Prophet
Matthew 7:14-16

(14) “But small is the gate and narrow the way that leads to life, and only a few find it”.

(15) “Beware of false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves”.

(16) “By their fruit you will recognize them. Are grapes gathered from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?"

Timothy 4:1-3

(1) "Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;"

(2) "Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;"

(3) "Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth."

Daemon is NOT a prophet! He’s not even a legitimately ordained Benedictine Abbot Superior. He is a charlatan who has had magnificent results in using the “skill of deceit”. His guilt, if left unrepentant, will result in his eternal damnation. And to this date Daemon has shown no remorse.

Luke 7: 1-3

(1) “Jesus said to His disciples, “It is inevitable that stumbling blocks will come, but woe to the one through whom they come!"

(2) “It would be better for him to have a millstone hung around his neck and to be thrown into the sea than to cause one of these little ones to stumble".

(3) “Watch yourselves. If your brother sins, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him."

The MHOSJ is NOT the last remnant Church on Earth! All breakaway, schismatic Protestant denominations make this inane claim. Put your trust in the Lord when he said:

Last Remnant Church
Matthew 16: 17-19

(17) “Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah! For this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by My Father in heaven."

(18) “And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it."

(19) “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on the earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

Do NOT seek after signs! Enough of them have been righteously given already.

Matthew 16:4

A wicked and adulterous generation looks for a sign, but none will be given it except the sign of Jonah.” Jesus then left them and went away."

The sign of Jonah was when Jesus died and then was resurrected. Jonah was in the belly of a whale for three days. Jesus was in the grave for three days.

And above all else, do NOT yearn to die for Christ but rather earnestly seek to LIVE for Him, following Him for He is truly the “good shepherd”. Those who have not taken monastic vows should step boldly out into the light of this day that God has given and profit in it as a Christian thanking the Lord for all the blessings within this world that He has provided for us.

Who am I to tell you this story?

Daemon will first tell you that what I am saying is nothing more than the obstinate ramblings of a madman, a heretic standing at the crossroads at 23rd Street.

I can tell you that I am not worthy to be considered the dust off the sandals of a prophet nor do I claim to be one. I am just like you, in the sense that, I’m a traveler on this straight and narrow road leading either to salvation or oblivion. Yet, today I feel compelled to proclaim loudly that all those, like me, who do not subscribe to and/or accept Daemons “delusions of grandeur” need not fear the expected rude / harsh / venomous accusations and brutal condemnations of this malevolent Abbot Superior of a heretic sect.

I believe that I am not alone when I say that we are NOT so blind as NOT to recognize, if we consider the facts, that this protégé of the devil bears false witness against us by condemning us simply because we have uncovered his heinous plan.

It becomes evident to the faithful that by remaining stalwart in our convictions, holding securely on to the principles of Christ’s Church that we can and will defeat this enemy of the not so common … common sense.

We can and must refuse to surrender to the malicious fear tactics hurled against us by this miscreant. We may be considered “sheep”, as in those found in Christ’s flock, but we are not the type to be blindly led into his unholy heretical ranks (corral) and thus to be slaughtered.

Faith & Forgiveness

We must remain bolstered in our faith; trusting in our Lord Jesus Christ, giving thanks to God that he has blessed our “eyes to see” through “the Beast’s” demonic ruse.

I declare that the true servants of Christ will never put their trust in any “man” who claims he’s God’s chosen for we know he lies and that he dangles from the strings of the puppet master, Maahes.

There is and only has been one redeemer; and that is our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He is the only shepherd capable of leading us safely Home.

We must remain steadfast, holding true to our traditional Catholic faith, even in these confusing / trying times within the traditional Catholic Church, and refuse to be lured to our ultimate destruction by believing, for a single moment Daemon’s or his cohorts “Enchanting Lustful Lies”.

You too are standing with me at the crossroads but it is your choice alone as to the direction you’ll choose to carry on.

Pax Tecum! (May peace be with you)
