The Apocalypse, the Book of the Revelation: 11.

All the good in the world that you pretend to do, if you do not confess Jesus Christ from the heart with the mouth and do it in Him and for Him, with NO false gods, is less than meaningless. It only adds to your condemnation.

Have nothing to do with Apostate Rome (second beast of Apocalypse 13). Have nothing to do with the Apostate New World Order with Jerusalem as its head (first beast of Apocalypse 13). 

Pray and watch and wait. God's Holy Prophets Enoch and Elijah will return and witness and fight against the Antichrist. Then Our Only Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ will return from heaven, in the same flesh with which He Ascended two thousand years ago, with all His elect angels and resurrect all men on earth that ever lived, here on earth in the flesh, and judge all men - each individual, for eternity.

[1] -Ver. 2. Forty-two months: three years and a half. The forty two months of thirty days each correspond to the twelve hundred and sixty days of the prophesying of the two witnesses and to the three years and a half of the woman in the wilderness. The period of forty-two months is the symbol of a period, limited in length, and under the control of Him who governs all things. Since we are given no reason to see it otherwise, and the Church Fathers teach that it is a literal length of time at the end of this age in the final fulfillment of this prophecy, we must believe that it is.
[2] -Ver. 3. Two witnesses: Elias and. Enoch, according to the Church Fathers and Doctors.
[3] -Ver. 7. Beast: no beast as yet has been mentioned. This beast symbolizes Antichrist.
[4] -Ver. 11. Three days and a half: this refers to the resurrection of the witnesses.

Gregory III of Rome

Gregory III of Rome

Our father among saints Gregory IIIPope of Rome (731-741), a Syrian by birth, succeeded Pope Gregory II in March 731. He vigorously opposed the iconoclastic controversy in the Byzantine Empire. He died on November 28, 741. St. Gregory is remembered by the Church on December 10.


Gregory was acclaimed pope by the crowds at his predecessor's funeral.
He was the last pope to seek the Byzantine exarch's mandate. Gregory immediately appealed to the Byzantine Emperor Leo III to moderate his position on the iconoclastic controversy. When this elicited no response, Gregory called a synod in November 731, denouncing iconoclasm and excommunicating destroyers of icons. When a messenger carrying the decrees reached the emperor, the latter decided to bring the pope under control. This included appropriating papal territories and transferring ecclesiastical jurisdictions to the Patriarch of Constantinople.
Gregory's support of the empire led him to help contribute to the recapture of Ravenna after it had fallen to the Lombards in 733. However, he also sought to fortify Rome and seek alliance with opponents of the Lombard monarch Liutprand, king of the Lombards, and then from the Franks. He sent embassies to Charles Martel, who made no response, having his own priorities.
Gregory promoted the Church in northern Europe, such as the missions of Saint Boniface in Germany and Willibald in Bohemia. He also bestowed palliums on Egbert of York and Tatwine,Archbishop of Canterbury. He beautified Rome and supported monasticism.

St. Gregory II. Pope and Confessor
HE was born in Rome, to an affluent fortune, and being educated in the palace of the popes, acquired great skill in the holy scriptures and in ecclesiastical affairs, and attained to an eminent degree of sanctity. Pope Sergius I. to whom he was very dear, ordained him subdeacon. Under the succeeding popes, John the sixth and seventh, Sisinnius, and Constantine, he was treasurer of the church, and afterwards library keeper, and was charged with several important commissions. The fifth general council had been held upon the affair of the three chapters, in 553, in the reign of Justinian, and the sixth against the Monothelites, in those of Constantine Pogonatus and Pope Agatho, in 660. With a view of adding a supplement of new canons to those of the aforesaid two councils, the bishops of the Greek church, to the number of two hundred and eleven, held the council called Quini-sext, in a hall of the imperial palace at Constantinople, named Trullus, in 692, which laid a foundation of certain differences in discipline between the Eastern and Western churches; for in the thirteenth canon it was enacted, that a man who was before married should be allowed to receive the holy orders of subdeacon, deacon, or priest, without being obliged to leave his wife, though this was forbidden to bishops. (can. 12.) It was also forbidden (can. 55.) to fast on Saturdays, even in Lent. Pope Sergius I. refused to confirm this council; and, in 695, the emperor Justinian II. surnamed Rhinotmetus, who had succeeded his father, Constantine Pogonatus, in 685, was dethroned for his cruelty, and his nose being slit, (from which circumstances he received his surname,) banished into Chersonesus. First Leontius, then Apsimarus Tiberius ascended the throne; but Justinian recovered it in 705, and invited Pope Constantine into the East, hoping to prevail upon him to confirm the council in Trullo. The pope was received with great honour, and had with him our saint, who, in his name, answered the questions put by the Greeks concerning the said council. After their return to Rome, upon the death of Constantine, Gregory was chosen pope, and ordained on the 19th of May, 715. The emperor Justinian being detested both by the army and people, Bardanes, who took the name of Philippicus, an Armenian, one of his generals, revolted, took Constantinople, put him and his son Tiberius, only seven years old, to death, and usurped the sovereignty in December, 711. In Justinian II. was extinguished the family of Heraclius. Philippicus abetted warmly the heresy of the Monothelites, and caused the sixth council to be prescribed in a pretended synod at Constantinople. His reign was very short; for Artemius, his secretary, who took the name of Anastasius II., deposed him, and stepped into the throne on the 4th of June, 713. By him the Monothelites were expelled; but, after a reign of two years and seven months, seeing one Theodosius chosen emperor by the army which had revolted in January, 716, he withdrew and took the monastic habit at Thessalonica. The Eastern army having proclaimed Leo III., surnamed the Isaurian, emperor on the 25th of March, 717, Theodosius and his son embraced an ecclesiastical state, and lived in peace among the clergy.  1
  Pope Gregory signalized the beginning of his popedom by deposing John VI. the Monothelite, false patriarch of Constantinople, who had been nominated by Philippicus, and he promoted the election of St. Germanus, who was translated to that dignity from Cyzicus, in 715. With unwearied watchfulness and zeal he laid himself out in extirpating heresies on all sides, and in settling a reformation of manners. Besides an hospital for old men, he rebuilt the great monastery near the church of St. Paul at Rome, and, after the death of his mother, in 718, changed her house into the monastery of St. Agatha. The same year he re-established the abbey of Mount Cassino, sending thither, from Rome, the holy abbot St. Petronax to take upon him the government, one hundred and forty years after it had been laid in ruins by the Lombards. This holy abbot lived to see monastic discipline settled here in so flourishing a manner, that in the same century Carloman, duke or prince of the French, Rachis, king of the Lombards, St. Willebald, St. Sturmius, first abbot of Fulda, and other eminent persons, fled to this sanctuary. 1Our holy pope commissioned zealous missionaries to preach the faith in Germany, and consecrated St. Corbinian bishop of Frisingen, and St. Boniface bishop of Mentz. Leo the Isaurian protected the catholic church during the first ten years of his reign, and St. Gregory II. laid up among the archives of his church several letters which he had received from him, from the year 717 to 726, which proved afterwards authentic monuments of his perfidy. For being infatuated by certain Jews, who had gained an ascendant over him by certain pretended astrological predictions, in 726 he commanded holy images to be abolished, and enforced the execution of his edicts of a cruel persecution. St. Germanus, and other orthodox prelates in the East, endeavoured to reclaim him, refused to obey his edicts, and addressed themselves to Pope Gregory. Our saint employed long the arms of tears and entreaties; yet strenuously maintained the people of Italy in their allegiance to their prince, as Anastasius assures us. A rebellion was raised in Sicily, but soon quelled by the death of Artemius, who had assumed the purple. The pope vigorously opposed the mutineers, both here and in other parts of the West. When he was informed that the army at Ravenna and Venice, making zeal a pretence for rebellion, had created a new emperor, he effectually opposed their attempt, and prevented the effect. Several disturbances which were raised in Rome were pacified by his care. Nevertheless he by letters encouraged the pastors of the church to resist the heresy which the emperor endeavoured to establish by bloodshed and violence. The tyrant sent orders to several of his officers, six or seven times, to murder the pope: but he was so faithfully guarded by the Romans and Lombards, that he escaped all their snares. St. Gregory II. held the pontificate fifteen years, eight months, and twenty-three days, and died in 731, on the 10th of February; but the Roman Martyrology consecrates to his memory the 13th, which was probably the day on which his corpse was deposited in the Vatican church.  2

St. Zachary, Pope and Confessor
HE succeeded Gregory III. in 741, and was a man of singular meekness and goodness; and so far from any thought of revenge, that he heaped benefits on those who had persecuted him before his promotion to the pontificate. He loved the clergy and people of Rome to that degree, that he hazarded his life for them on occasion of the troubles which Italy fell into by the rebellion of the dukes of Spoletto and Benevento against King Luitprand. Out of respect to his sanctity and dignity, that king restored to the church of Rome all the places which belonged to it, Ameria, Horta, Narni, Ossimo, Ancona, and the whole territory of Sabina, and sent back the captives without ransom. The Lombards were moved to tears at the devotion with which they heard him perform the divine service. By a journey to Pavia, he obtained also of Luitprand, though with some difficulty, peace for the territory of Ravenna, and the restitution of the places which he had taken from the exarchate. The zeal and prudence of this holy pope appeared in many wholesome regulations, which he had made to reform or settle the discipline and peace of several churches. St. Boniface, the apostle of Germany, wrote to him against a certain priest, named Virgilius; that he laboured to sow the seeds of discord between him and Odilo, duke of Bavaria, and taught, besides other errors, that there were other men under the earth, another sun and moon, and another world. 1 Pope Zachary answered, that if he taught such an error he ought to be deposed. This cannot be understood as a condemnation of the doctrine of Antipodes, or the spherical figure of the earth, as some writers have imagined by mistake. The error here spoken of is that of certain heretics, who maintained that there was another race of men, who did not descend from Adam, and were not redeemed by Christ. Nor did Zachary pronounce any sentence in the case: for in the same letter he ordered that Virgilius should be sent to Rome, that his doctrine might be examined. It seems that he cleared himself: for we find this same Virgilius soon after made bishop of Saltzburgh. 2 Certain Venetian merchants having bought at Rome many slaves to sell to the Moors in Africa, St. Zachary forbade such an iniquitous traffic, and, paying the merchants their price, gave the slaves their liberty. He adorned Rome with sacred buildings, and with great foundations in favour of the poor and pilgrims, and gave every year a considerable sum to furnish oil for the lamps in St. Peter’s church. He died in 752, in the month of March, and is honoured in the Roman Martyrology on this day. See his letters and the Pontificals, t. 6. Conc. also Fleury, l. 42. t. 9. p. 349.  1
Note 1. Quod alius mondus et alii homines sub terra sint, seu alius sol et luna. (Ep. 10. t. 6. Conc. p. 15. 21. et Bibl. Patr. inter Epist. S. Bonif.) To imagine different worlds of men upon earth, some not descending from Adam, nor redeemed by Christ, is contrary to the holy scriptures, and therefore justly condemned as erroneous, as Baronius observes. (add. ann. 784. n. 12.) [back]
Note 2. Many ancient philosophers thought the earth flat, not spherical, and believed no Antipodes. Several fathers adopted this vulgar error in philosophy, in which faith no way interferes, as St. Austin, (1. 16. de Civ. Dei. c. 9.) Bede, (l. 4. de Principiis Philos.) and Cosmas the Egyptian, surnamed Indicopleustes. It is, however, a mistake to imagine, with Montfaucon, in his preface to this last-mentioned author, that this was the general opinion of Christian philosophers down to the fifteenth century. For the learned Philophonus demonstrated before the modern discoveries, (de Mundi Creat. l. 3. c. 13.) that the greater part of the fathers teach the world to be a sphere, as Saint Basil, the two SS. Gregories, of Nazianzum and of Nyssa, Saint Athanasius, &c. And several amongst them mention Antipodes, as Saint Hilary, (in Ps. 2. n. 32.) Origen, (l. 2. de princip. c. 3.) Saint Clement, pope, &c. [back]

The Justice of God: The New Age is the same old lie of Satan and all of paganism

The Justice of God: The New Age is the same old lie of Satan and all of paganism

All the Influx into Western Societies and any society in the world where Christian faith ruled the people, traditionally based on Christian Revelation, of Hinduism and Buddhism and Mesopotamian and Graeco-Egyptian Religions and Ancient Near Eastern Mysticism and American Indian Shamanism and all the rest of paganism and modern proponents thereof and all of the pay for hire teachers of these pagan assaults on the truth of God are nothing but the false prophets that Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ foretold would come. He warned us to have nothing to do with them. 

Matthew Chapter 24

24:10 And then shall many be scandalized and shall betray one another and shall hate one another.
24:11 And many false prophets shall rise and shall seduce many.
The false prophets began in increasing numbers and venom in the 19th century and continued into the 20th/21st centuries. Primarily this is all the Satanic Zionist and Eastern pagan religions and Occult theosophies etc. and Syncretist and Ecumenist, including Pantheistic Communist, movements as well. Bahai is only one of many Syncretist examples. Sergei Bulgakov is the primary Pantheistic Communist example and was subsumed later by the Vatican and Orthodox Patriarch of Constantinople led Ecumenist movement of Apostasy of which Bulgakov was a primary instigator to begin with.

Especially the false prophets are the Vatican false popes in the 20th/21st centuries - John XXIII, Paul VI, John Paul I and John Paul II and Benedict XVI and any after them. Many other false prophets arise then as well. All of them are condemned.

24:12 And because iniquity hath abounded, the charity of many shall grow cold.
24:13 But he that shall persevere to the end, he shall be saved.24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world, for a testimony to all nations: and then shall the consummation come.
Those false prophets are all centered on the 'rebuilt temple.' This is true whether they know it or admit it or not, and are they are nevertheless always fully responsible for all the false blasphemous pseudo doctrines and prophecies they spew out. The 'rebuilt temple' is the Abomination of Desolation - the abominable rebuilt temple of Satan which will take place in the future in the place where the Temple of God HAD stood 2,000 years ago. That Temple of God was desecrated forevermore when the Jews in it blasphemed God and His Christ in 65 A.D., and after, by altering the so called 18 Temple Benedictions to include curses against God, His Christ and Christians. God used the Roman general Titus in 68 through 70 A.D. to destroy that temple utterly, as the Lord Jesus Christ said would happen, not a stone upon a stone was left. Titus took all the stones of the temple apart. The so -called wailing wall is an outer Roman retaining wall and not part of the temple building itself.

24:15 When therefore you shall see the abomination of desolation, which was spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place: he that readeth let him understand.
24:16 Then they that are in Judea, let them flee to the mountains:
24:17 And he that is on the housetop, let him not come down to take any thing out of his house:
24:18 And he that is in the field, let him not go back to take his coat.
24:19 And woe to them that are with child and that give suck in those days.
24:20 But pray that your flight be not in the winter or on the sabbath.
24:21 For there shall be then great tribulation, such as hath not been from the beginning of the world until now, neither shall be.
24:22 And unless those days had been shortened, no flesh should be saved: but for the sake of the elect those days shall be shortened.
The wave of false Christs and false prophets increases hugely prior to the temple rebuilding and just after it. Even more than the former false prophets and with them, they all are totally condemned by God (especially the Vatican false popes John XXIII, Paul VI, John Paul I and John Paul II and Benedict XVI and all the Ecumenists and any after them). All of the former false prophets and these become increasingly rapacious and bold to do what Satan instigates them to do. All of them are condemned by God. We are to have nothing to do with any of them at all.

24:23 Then if any man shall say to you, Lo here is Christ, or there: do not believe him.
24:24 For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets and shall shew great signs and wonders, insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect.

24:25 Behold I have told it to you, beforehand.
Do not go into them!

24:26 If therefore they shall say to you, Behold he is in the desert: go ye not out. Behold he is in the inner rooms: believe it not.
24:27 For as lightning cometh out of the east and appeareth even into the west: so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
24:28 Wheresoever the body shall be, there shall the eagles also be gathered together.

Wheresoever, etc. . .The coming of Christ shall be sudden, and manifest to all the world, like lightning: and wheresoever he shall come, thither shall all mankind, living and dead, be gathered to him for judgment, as eagles are gathered about a dead body. Those on Christ's right hand shall go into the eternal kingdom of God and those on Christ's left hand, with the False Prophet and the Antichrist and the Devil and the fallen angels and demons, into hell in eternal torment forevermore.

See this in the below, "Simon pretended that Helen was the reincarnation of Helen of Troy." where Simon Magus, the prime progenitor of the Gnostics in New Testament times (based on the pre-Christian Gnostic Naasseni and the Ophites [both Satanist 'serpent worshippers']) included the false doctrine of reincarnation from the Gnostics with all the other lies of the Satanist serpent worshippers. Reincarnation in all its various forms (all false) were laced throughout Gnosticism. In the true teaching of the Gospel, all of Gnosticism and Reincarnation are always totally condemned as lies leading straight to hell.

The Catholic Creed: God, His Infinite Existence and Governing Presence in His creation and His forgiveness of sin

God, His Infinite Existence and Governing Presence in His creation and His forgiveness of sin

GOD is the Truth. The Most Holy Trinity is God and none other is God. The Most Holy Trinity is Three Persons Who are One God. These Three Persons are The Father and the Son, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. The Father is the fountainhead of the Trinity, the Son proceeds from His engendering in the Father’s bosom, the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father in the unity of the engendering of the Son from the Father. This procession of the Son and the Holy Spirit from the Father is immortal from before all time and creation and unto eternity never-ending. This Triune God alone has Aseity, that He is immortal without beginning and without end, self sustained in His existence which preceded all time and creation and, His existence, continues forever; God’s existence is infinite. This God is above all that He has created and transcendent in all that He has created. There is nothing apart from nor outside of God that He has not created. He created all that has been created ex nihilo, that is from nothing by His infinite power. Nothing that is created has aseity. Time is only an aspect of that which has been created by God. Time is therefore part of God’s creation. God is not limited by His creation, this includes that God is not limited by time. God is Omnipotent and Omniscient and Ubiquitos and with eternal complete foresight: Almighty and All seeing and knowing and equally present everywhere and knowing all things before their creation and all events before they come to pass unto eternity. There is no way to God but through the Second Person of the Most Holy Trinity Who is the Lord Jesus Christ, in Whom alone there is salvation by His Most Holy Cross and Resurrection. Creation had a beginning but will continue unto the eternal ages to come. At the return of Jesus Christ from God the Father’s right hand in the third heaven and the just judgement of Christ of His creatures, creation will be cleansed by fire (the damned, both angels and men consigned to hell forever) and renewed with paradise restored, with the presence around God of all His elect angels and saints, and continue in this way forever.

Salvation by Christ is by His Kenosis (the elect angels do not stand in need of salvation for they never sinned and are God’s servants forever).

Holy Holy Holy Lord God of hosts who will return in glory and in flaming fire taking vengeance upon those who know not God and who obey not the Lord Jesus Christ

1 ¶ For every high priest taken from among men is ordained for men in the things that appertain to God, that he may offer up gifts and sacrifices for sins:
2 Who can have compassion on them that are ignorant and that err: because he himself also is compassed with infirmity.
3 And therefore he ought, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for sins.
4 Neither doth any man take the honour to himself, but he that is called by God, as Aaron was.
5 So Christ also did not glorify himself, that he might be made a high priest: but he that said unto him: Thou art my Son: this day have I begotten thee.
6 As he saith also in another place: Thou art a priest for ever, according to the order of Melchisedech.
7 Who in the days of his flesh, with a strong cry and tears, offering up prayers and supplications to him that was able to save him from death, was heard for his reverence.
8 And whereas indeed he was the Son of God, he learned obedience by the things which he suffered.
9 And being consummated, he became, to all that obey him, the cause of eternal salvation:
10 ¶ Called by God a high priest, according to the order of Melchisedech.
11 Of whom we have much to say and hard to be intelligibly uttered: because you are become weak to hear.
12 For whereas for the time you ought to be masters, you have need to be taught again what are the first elements of the words of God: and you are become such as have need of milk and not of strong meat.
13 For every one that is a partaker of milk is unskilful in the word of justice: for he is a little child.
14 But strong meat is for the perfect: for them who by custom have their senses exercised to the discerning of good and evil.

St. Paul explains this same thing with different wording in Philippians.
5 For let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
6 Who being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
7 But emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in the likeness of men, and in habit found as a man.
8 He humbled himself, becoming obedient unto death, even to the death of the cross.
9 For which cause, God also hath exalted him and hath given him a name which is above all names:
10 That in the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those that are in heaven, on earth, and under the earth:
11 And that every tongue should confess that the Lord Jesus Christ is in the glory of God the Father.

This is crucial to our understanding of Christ’s mission to save us. In the above “emptied” is kenosis in the Greek. Christ’s kenosis (He Who is the Immortal Son of God and has always existed from before He created anything, His emptying out of Himself for us and to us) consists of “taking the form of a servant” at His incarnation of the Blessed Virgin Mary by the Holy Spirit, “being made in the likeness of men” extremely important — His incarnation in the flesh, “in habit found as a man” this part explains phrases like “learned obedience”. Jesus never had to learn anything for Himself since He is God and Omniscient – All Knowing. But He willed to be born and grow up and be taught by Joseph and Mary. Think about it, it was the Blessed Virgin who taught Him the Psalms that He was the Mediator for David to receive by inspiration of the Holy Spirit and record for us. In simple terms He taught David the Psalms and willed that Mary would teach Him on earth the same psalms, though, of course He knew them already. So all references to His learning and growing and being perfected are only those things that He willed to go through for two basic reasons for our sakes. Number two first: to show us what our attitude and efforts should be on His behalf as His ambassadors to the rest of mankind. He “learned” but is actually teaching us. Number one in importance: “being made in the likeness of men” extremely important — His incarnation in the flesh. St. Athanasius Contra Mundum (against the world [opposing heresy]) addresses this when he explains that had Christ the Immortal Son of the Father in the Unity and Power of the Holy Spirit simply have erased Adam’s sin then the natural debt we all inherited to die from that sin would have meant that all men would die forever and be lost since God doesn’t lie and He pronounced that the separation of man from God due to sin would by the natural property of human nature make anything else impossible. In other words if God simply erased the sin He would have erased men as well thereby. Worst yet, St. Athanasius tells us, the devil would thereby have won that round. But what God did, the Son, Who because of His Divine substance/essence – nature cannot die, is to take upon himself the real human nature of all men subsumed from Mary — and therefore of Adam (see the genealogies in St. Matthew’s, Chapter 1, and St. Luke’s, Chapter 3, Gospels; in St. Luke’s Gospel all the way back to Adam). Since of Adam, then, of all men. Since He had and has that nature in total union with His divine nature, when he suffered and died (it is in this sense that St. Paul says “learned obedience”) in our place as the ransom from death then we become sons and daughters by adoption unto real eternal life at the future Return of Christ and the General Resurrection of the flesh, each of us, our bodies reunited with our same soul and same spirit. Therefore death, which insured that God’s law would be obeyed, was originally God’s way to insure that man would not become a diabolic creature totally in bondage to the devil, incapable of being in union with the Holy God, Himself. Christ took death, merited by all men, upon Himself preserving what God had said to Adam and Eve “upon that day (of disobedience) you will die”. Therefore, Christ’s death, then becomes the ransom to bring us out of thralldom to the devil and into union with God in Christ. Christ’s Resurrection then becomes the guarantor of our resurrection — which will absolutely happen. This is a brief description of Christ’s kenosis. Christ’s kenosis is the weightiest subject in the whole Bible. Christ’s obedience loosed the debt of Adam’s disobedience as Mary’s obedience undid the knot of Eve’s disobedience (that last is from St. Irenaeus). A note of warning: those who retie the knot of Eve’s disobedience and who bind themselves again in the debt of Adam’s disobedience by becoming part of pagan religions, who profess atheism or agnosticism, who follow after the Antichrist or who walk not in God’s commandments though they pretend to be Christ’s, will certainly be resurrected, but to eternal undying destruction in the lake of fire with the devil and all the fallen angels and all of the demons. Only the saints will inherit paradise with the elect angels in this universe recreated by God at the second coming of Jesus Christ at the end of this age of grace.


Note, before we go to the below, Islam teaches people to pray to Allah (swt), who the Holy Qur'an explicity says is the Triune God of Allah (Father), Word (Son), Spirit (Holy Spirit). Therefore when they confess their sins to Allah (and they certainly do), then they are confessing to Jesus Christ, the Son, according to the Holy Qur'an. Jesus Christ, 'Isa al Maseeh, is the one that Muslims and Christians both also profess is the only Messiah. See Final Trial.

God’s omniscience and his forgiveness of sin.
God alone forgives sin. That is, christ alone forgives sin since he is god in the flesh and the only mediator between god and man, for no one can come to the father except through jesus christ, and he is the high priest of god appointed by the father to be the only one we can approach for forgiveness of sins. See Apostle.

In the passage from hebrews quoted below saint paul affirms that god is present everywhere and sees everything – totally knows all things; that god is omnipresent and omniscient. God is equally present everywhere, this is the truth that god is ubiquitous.

In the following, the word of god is jesus christ himself.
12 For the word of god is living and effectual, and more piercing than any two edged sword, and reaching unto where the soul and the spirit unite, and of the joining with what is enclosed within, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
13 And there is no creature hidden from his sight; but all things are naked and open to his eyes, to whom we have to answer.
14 Having therefore a great high priest who has passed into the heavens, jesus the son of god, let us hold fast our confession.
15 For we have not a high priest, who can not have compassion on our infirmities, but one tried in all things like as we are, except without sin.
16 Let us therefore go with confidence to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

St. Paul's epistle to the Hebrews chapter 4
God is ubiquituos (totally present and all seeing and all knowing equally everywhere throughout his creation), and he has given men free will.
Therefore it is very important concerning where the mark of sin is in a man.
Memory is the knowledge of the experience of (retained by) the self, i.e. Sentience of self experience – sentience = consciousness. My memory = my sentience of my experience; sentience of sentience = memory, self is created, one’s soul, a person’s memory is of his experience of his own self not another’s – man or demon or devil – god’s holy angels, with god’s permission, see more.

God has the total experience of every creature of his known by his (nous) mind, but not all are encompassed by his (uncreated) wisdom – that which is outside of his wisdom, which is the holy spirit who is given to and through jesus christ god’s immortal son, is sin, i.e. Darkness –no part in life eternal who is his immortal son jesus christ. These sins abide in the memory of the self which is a man’s soul, unless a man confess his sins to christ and be forgiven and therfore cleansed by him alone who is ubiquitous and therefore present with all men in this life. (those who do not are therfore headed for hell. This is where, at the bottom of the abyss, beneath the universe, the abode of the damned is; the outer darkness consumed eternally by the unquenchable fire of god’s wrath; which jesus christ also referred to as gehenna [ge-hinnom in hebrew]. This is hell; the one place of damnation, which by god’s command exists and will continue to exist eternally, but where god’s presence by the holy spirit who is his uncreated wisdom, is not. It exists by the power of god with an energy given by him to keep it in place but totally without the holy spirit and therefore also totally without any sanctifying grace. This is forever, with no redemption there at all ever. This is the abode of the damned: the devil and all the rest of the fallen angels, all the demons and all men who are not saved by coming to christ, in repentance of their sins, and receiving the forgiveness of christ. Young children are not held accountable, for 
they cannot form the requisite intent to be held guilty of any sin.)

Four basic elements created by god are fire, spirit, water, earth (do not 
confuse this with the scientist’s theories)

Pagan has 6 and is disordered (we do not need to involve ourselves in their confusion)

Four realms of god, which he made from the elements he created, are:
1) inanimate realm
2) simple life realm
3) sentient realm
4) eternal life realm
Pagan –
1) confusion about anything
2) totally seared conscience
3) will do anything evil
4) utter destruction comes upon them

1) the nature of good is life – god the holy trinity, the father and the son and the holy spirit is the author thereof:

(In the below: The opposition is the destruction of those who oppose - it is not complimentary as liars make it to be. See below for #2 through #4, the evil oppositions of the devil. damned are all of those who align themselves with those oppositions.)

1) the inanimate realm, god created the universe of the four basic elements of fire, spirit, water, earth and then made from this inanimate realm living creatures and man who he made sentient and destined for eternal life before the fall of adam; again destined for eternal life at our redemption in christ.

This is creation in one day encompassing the six days which also show forth the ages of the church from the time of adam to christ and the seventh day, christ’s future return, and the eighth day, the endless ages of ages of christ with the saved and his elect angels in this universe recreated then at the second coming of christ. 

This is opposed by
#2) the nature of evil, belial (nothingness), the devil, which is death – the devil (diabolos) is the author of sin and death.

2) simple life realm, which is god creating man (the first formed man – adam) from the moist earth {- and breathed into him and he became a living soul, see 3) below}

This is opposed by
#3) the devil’s temptation to abandon the source of life who is god.

3) the sentient realm, which is adam the living soul quickened by the spirit of god. 

This is opposed by the
#4) devil’s prompting to sin (causing death) which is evil which is trying, with others trying to do the same or tempting others to do the same, to be your own god.

4) the eternal life realm, which are those creatures who possess an eternal self and are faithful to god. These are the holy angels and men who are christ’s (the saints). 

This is opposed by
#4) the lie which is that the evil that comes from the devil actually comes from god.

This #2) nature of the devil (evil nothingness death) is to envy god prompting the devil’s sin (trying to replace god) which is #3) the devil’s lie (that god did not tell the truth when god said to adam that for adam to abandon god would cause adam’s death) which is the devil's temptation which is #4) to cause adam to sin which is #3) and tempting men to continue to tell the lie #4) therefore cutting them off from the life that is in christ jesus the only redeemer and therefore saviour of the whole world of those who are saved (the saved includes adam and eve who repented).

All creatures who are created by God in the eternal life realm, i. e. Angels and Men, who are not faithful to God are damned forever. There is no repentance offered to the evil Angels - their decision to depart from God was once forever due to their intrinsic nature as spirits. Men have this life ONLY to repent of their sins and believe in Christ and be saved. Innocent children, who have, as St. Irenaeus says, no knowledge of sin (due to their young age), are not condemned.

The nature of the devil is evil (envy), death-sin, liar;
therefore the devil, the antichrist, the false prophet are the ultimate evil.

Cry out, do not cease, like a
trumpet raise thy voice,
and reveal to my people their
wicked deeds and to the house
of jacob their sins.
Isaias 58, 1

Say this prayer of repentance, daily:
Against you, you alone, Jesus Christ, have we sinned and done evil in your sight, forgive us our sins, purge us with hyssop and we shall be cleansed, wash us and we shall be made whiter than snow, make the bones you have numbered to rejoice.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son and Word of the living God in the unity and power of your Holy Spirit, with and by the prayers of your all-pure mother and of all your saints and elect angels, have mercy and deliver us.

The following is Saint Polycarp's prayer at the stake just before he was burned to death for refusing to compromise his faith in jesus christ by worshipping ceasar and the roman gods. Saint Polycarp's faith is a saving faith, anything less is not.

He was not nailed but bound. and bound thus, with his hands behind his back, he seemed like a lambchosen from the flock for the sacrifice, prepared as a holocaust pleasing to God; and raising his eyes to heaven he said:

"Lord, God almighty, Father of Jesus Christ, your blessed and beloved Son who has taught us to know you.

God of the angels, of the whole of creation, of the whole race of the just who live in your presence: i bless you because you have judged me worthy of this day and of this hour; worthy to be added to the number of the martyrs; worthy to drink the chalice of your Christ, so as to rise up to eternal life in body and soul in the immortality of the Holy Spirit.

May i today be numbered among the martyrs in your presence as a precious and acceptable victim; bring to completion that which your will has prepared and revealed to me; God, faithful and true, for this grace and for all the others, i praise you, i glorify you, and bless you through our eternal heavenly priest, your beloved Son, Jesus Christ.

Through him, with him, and with the Holy Spirit, may you be glorified now and through all ages."

Polycarp of Smyrna
Prayer to Christ

The following is a theological explanation of how God is ubiquitously present (totally present everywhere at all times); since God created everything (except himself, always having existed, which quality is called aseity), the willful misuse of anything or anybody including oneself, is sin against God himself, who is present in all of his creation. God’s creation is composed of elements (the basic biblical elements are: fire, spirit, water, earth, called in Greek, ‘stoichea’). There are also four basic realms which are all part of God’s created cosmos: the realm of those who are created with a beginning and an eternal life, i.e. angels and men, the realm of creatures with a sentient soul but no eternal life, i.e. animals, the realm of those things created with life but not a thinking or an aware mind, i.e. plants, the realm of things created and therefore having an existence sustained by God but with no self, no consciousness, nor life, i.e. the realm of the inanimate. In all of this all misuse of any of this is sin, the misuse of the elements is sorcery and magic, the misuse of the creatures of God is idolatry and when the two misuses are combined it is the sin of witchcraft – all of these sins are instigated by Satan whom Jesus told us in St. John’s Gospel is a murderer and liar from the beginning (Gospel of St. John chapter 8 verse 44). In this verse, in which Jesus condemns those who held a superficial profession of faith in God, is the absolute definition of sin from the sin of Satan and the other fallen angels and then the fall of Adam and Eve and every other sin there ever has been or will be: “the Father from whom you are is the devil, and the desires of the Father of you it is your will to do. That one was a murderer from the beginning and has not stood in the truth, because truth is not in him. When he speaks the lie he speaks from his very nature, because he is a liar and the Father of lies.” in this extremely important verse is the definition of what Jesus also informs us of in his rebuke to the devil in St. Matthew’s Gospel chapter 4 verse 10: then Jesus said to him, “begone, Satan! for it is written, the Lord your God shall you worship and him only shall you serve.” angels are created noetic spirits (spirits, each with a self identity and an individual mind) and their nature at the moment of their creation is good; they are endowed with a free will. Satan and the rest of the fallen angels chose to deny God and all worship and service of God, i.e. to apostasize from God, and be their own gods (they are the false gods behind all of the pagan religions, Buddhism, Hinduism, false Islam which uses idolatry and magic (as opposed to true Islam which does not) etc., and idols and are the instigating spirits of sorcery and magic and all sin). This decision on their part immediately and irrevocably separated them from the Holy Spirit of God and therefore, at that moment their natures became evil forevermore. Men are a different case; their souls are where their self exists. Men possess free will to make the decision whether or not to worship and serve the true God; however, unlike the angels, men’s existence is in the flesh. Therefore a man’s decision is made in the flesh. God fixed the nature of man’s flesh to remain incorrupt and not know death ever, as long as man did not transgress God’s commandment not to stray from the worship and service of God who is the only Creator of all and source of life (which commandment is given universally to all angels and men). The nature of man’s flesh, as created by God, parted from perfect obedience of man and therefore indwelling of God by his spirit with incorruption, has a limited life span by God’s command. Therefore, unlike the angels who cannot die as men die in the flesh, man has a time here on earth in his flesh to make his decision whether or not to worship and serve the living God and inherit life eternal, i.e. incorruption. Adam was created in the flesh and sinned in the flesh and therefore men inherit, not sin, but death in the flesh because of Adam’s sin. Men’s decision is irrevocably fixed at the moment of their death. Beginning with Adam (the first formed man and there are none of any sort before him) all men’s souls are formed to their bodies; their souls are where their self exists eternally. Man at his creation (Adam) and each man thereafter at his soul’s creation by God at the moment of conception in the man’s body is a person. Each person is a threefold existence of spirit from God, soul created by God and body made of the elements created by God. Unrepentant sinners who go to hell upon their death and the lake of fire at the final judgement are devoid of any spirit of God forevermore. Their same souls and bodies alone (no spirit) are resurrected reunited by Christ forevermore at the resurrection of all men in the future and then condemned at that time to the lake of fire (at the bottom of the abyss beneath the universe). The saints (all of the saved from the first adam on) will be resurrected with their same spirits souls and bodies reunited (all diseases of the former life healed) and inherit life eternal with Christ incorrupt as he is uncorrupt, in this universe (God’s creation) recreated at that time unto the endless ages of ages to come. The reason for our resurrection is that Christ, by virtue of his being God, in taking the flesh of the blessed virgin Mary (who was descended from Adam 70 generations before, as well as all men – recounted in the Gospel of St. Luke chapter 3 verses 23-38) therefore took the flesh of all men, Adam and all men ever descended from Adam, and thereby took the punishment of death (upon his cross) that had been decreed by him upon men for Adam’s sin, upon himself.

Note: in the passage from St. John’s Gospel that “…the desires of the Father of you (the devil) it is your will to do. That one was a murderer from the beginning and has not stood in the truth…”. Men (who are old enough to form the requisite intention and never before that does any man sin) sin by their willing to do it. It is true, of course, that the devil tempted Adam and Eve with his own self temptation, i.e. to be their own gods, in order to draw them to the worship of himself. Adam and Eve could have said no. They chose to sin as do all men who sin. The devil was by virtue of his angelic nature (noetic), therefore having an immediate knowledge of right and wrong upon his creation, to be held immediately and irrevocably bound by his apostasy from the moment of his sin (see book of the holy prophet of God, Ezechiel, chapter 28 verses 12b through 19.)

The following describes God’s holy presence throughout his creation. Therefore, as said above, any and all apostasy from he who created all of creation and any and all misuse of his creation (that is: in transgressing his commandments in any of these cases) by any of his creatures is sin. All angels, and all men who have reached the age of reason, are responsible to God for their thoughts, intentions, words, deeds and in both commission and omission in all of this and will answer to him who is the just judge. We men absolutely need our redeemer Saviour Jesus Christ. The elect angels worship and serve him but do not stand in need of salvation since they have never sinned. The devil and the rest of the fallen angels are damned forever.

4. Now those who were scattered abroad went about preaching the word. 5. And, Philip went down to the city of Samaria and preached the Christ to them. 6. And the crowds with one accord gave heed to what was said by Philip, listening to him and seeing the miracles that he worked (by the power of the Holy Spirit). 7. For many of those having unclean spirits, crying with a loud voice, went out. {Note: this is the direct translation from the Latin and also from the Greek [by the late 1940's CCD Catholic translators] - those with the unclean spirits went out; i.e. they left, driven out by the Holy Spirit. It was a typical practice in ancient paganism, and also in the modern descendants of that infidelity to the true living God (Buddhism - especially Tibetan tantrism and Japanese esoteric/exoteric Mahayana - Nicherin Shoshu for instance, Hinduism, heretical Sufi mystics for instance, etc.), to purposely obsess themselves (cause their own possession) with demonic spirits. Doing the same thing is the basis of the so-called "catholic charismatic movement" which is total heresy. The true God, worshipped traditionally through the centuries by the One Holy Apostolic Catholic Church, Orthodox in doctrine and profession of the one true saving faith, will NOT tolerate the spirits of the false gods which God forbade by the first commandment "thou shalt not have strange gods before Me".}

8. So there was great joy in that city. {That the worshippers of the false gods had been driven out}

9. Now a man named Simon had previously been practicing sorcery in that city and astounding the people of Samaria, claiming to be someone great; 10. and all from least to greatest listened to him, saying, "This man is the power of God, which is called great." 11. And they gave heed to him because for a long time he had bewitched them with his sorceries. 12. But when they believed Philip as he preached the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. 13. And Simon also himself believed, and after his baptism attached himself to Philip and at sight of the signs and exceedingly great miracles being wrought, he was amazed.

14. Now when the apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent to them Peter and John. 15. On their arrival they prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Spirit; 16. for as yet he had not come upon any of them {that had been baptized by Phillip, however at the miracles of Phillip the self possessed by demons had been driven out by the power of the Holy Spirit}, but they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 17. Then they laid their hands on them and they received the Holy Spirit. 18. But when Simon saw that the Holy Spirit was given through the laying on of the apostles hands {not laid on this Simon and the Holy Spirit absolutely not given to him}, he offered them money, 19. saying, "Give me also this power, so that anyone on whom I lay my hands may receive the Holy Spirit." But Peter. said to him, 20. "Thy money go to destruction with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God could be purchased with money. 21. Thou hast no part or lot in this matter; for thy heart is not right before God."

Note: Simony, using the Gospel for money making purposes (it is alright for a man to pray that God give him work to make a living, that is quite different), and blaspheming the Holy Spirit are both immediate and direct reasons for the complete damnation of infidels and heretics by God, which God will do! The complete history of Simon Magus (Simon the magician) who is referred to in the above passage is given in the Church Fathers, especially St. Irenaeus and St. Hippolytus, and others. Simon's final damnation is here prophesied by St. Peter, although for a while Simon pretended to repent, but went on to even more blasphemous and absurd and dirty schemes with a prostitute named Helen. Simon pretended that Helen was the reincarnation of Helen of Troy. According to St. Irenaeus and St. Hippolytus and the other Church Fathers writing on the subject, Simon is the father of the ancient heresy against the Church which is called Gnosticism. The Gnostics followed in the footsteps of the Naaseni (ancient serpent worshippers that had apostasized from the true God and turned, on purpose, to worship Satan). Amongst other offenses of which the Gnostics were guilty were: committing abortion, pretending to forgive sins by their own power and partaking in and encouraging sexual sins - especially taking advantage of women. The modern Gnostics would be those who, today, molest young people sexually, priests who take license with women parishioners sexually and/or brow beat them for money and the ecumenists who claim that the false gods of Buddhism and Hinduism and paganism in general etc. are to be tolerated. The Church Fathers further taught that the ringleaders of this sort of thing, especially priests and bishops, are to be driven out and not even offered absolution, but the little folks who have been mislead should repent of this and have nothing to do with the apostate priests and bishops.


In the Gospel of St. Mark in the 13th chapter, Jesus' discourse on the signs immediately preceding His second coming (in the same flesh in which He, the incarnate God was crucified, died, buried and resurrected and ascended to the Father's right hand in heaven, returning therefrom to raise and judge all men), in the 22nd verse Jesus gives us a severe warning: "For false christs and false prophets will arise, and will show signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect." verse 23. "Be on your guard, therefore; behold, I have told you all things beforehand." In the 22nd verse the word 'astray' is the same word in the Greek as in St. Paul's 1st epistle to St. Timothy in the 6th chapter, the 10th verse, translated as 'erred': "For the desire of money is the root of all evils; which some coveting have erred from the faith, and have entangled themselves in many sorrows." (From Thayer's Lexicon: apo-planaoo, 1 aor. pass. apeplanethen; 'to cause to go astray', trop. 'to lead away from the truth to error': Mk. xiii. 22; pass. to go astray, stray away from: 1 Tim. vi. 10.) In both cases it means to deny Christ and the faith and therefore to not be saved but be judged and condemned by Christ into hell. Also, quoted under The Angel's Promise, see below in Apocalypse 18th chapter verse 23b: "because thy merchants were the great men of the earth, for by thy witchcraft (pharmakeia) all the nations have been led astray." led astray here is a closely related word in the Greek, eplanethesan. In all these cases it means led to transgress against God and be damned by Christ, not saved by Him.

From "The Didache"; the Apostolic directions to Christians. This is the earliest Christian book in existence.
"Thou shalt not murder a child by abortion." 2:2
"The Way of Death is filled with people who are ... murderers of children and abortionists of God's creatures." 5:1-2
How Christians Should Live

13. For you have been called to liberty, brethren; only do not use liberty as an occasion for sensuality, but by charity serve one another. 14. For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word: Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. 15. But if you bite and devour one another, take heed or you will be consumed by one another. (signifies the complete ruin of the Christian Community)
16. But I say: Walk in the Spirit, and you will not fulfill the lusts of the flesh. 17. For the flesh lusts against the spirit, and the spirit against the flesh; for these are opposed to each other, so that you do not do what you would. 18. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law. 19. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are immorality, uncleanness, licentiousness, 20. idolatry, witchcrafts (pharmekeia), enmities; contentions, jealousies, anger, quarrels, factions, parties, 21. envies; murders, drunkenness, carousings, and suchlike. And concerning these I warn you, as I have warned you, that they who do such things will not attain the kingdom of God. 22. But the fruit of the Spirit is: charity, joy, peace; patience, kindness, goodness, 23. faith, modesty, continency. Against such things there is no law. 24. And they who belong to Christ have crucified their flesh with its passions and desires. 25. If we live by the Spirit, by the Spirit let us also walk. 26. Let us not become desirous of vainglory, provoking one another, envying one another. - from Galatians Chapter 5

The Angel's Promise

21. And a strong angel took up a stone, as it were a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, "With this violence will Babylon; the great city, be overthrown, and will not be found any more. 22. And the sound of harpers and musicians and flute-players and trumpet will not be heard in thee any more; and no craftsman of any craft will be found in thee any more; and sound of millstone will not be heard in thee any more. 23. And light of lamp will not shine in thee any more; and voice of bridegroom and of bride will not be heard in thee any more; because thy merchants were the great men of the earth, for by thy witchcraft (pharmakeia - note 1) all the nations have been led astray. 24. And in her was found blood of prophets and of saints, and of all who have been slain upon the earth." - from Apocalypse Chapter 18

note 1 - Pharmakoi: sorcerer (or sorceress); pharmakon: sorcerer's sacrifice; pharmakos: sorcery; pharmakeia: witchcraft - all the foregoing offered to Satan via idolatry (idoololatreia); in this description, especially including the idolatry of mammon that Christ condemned as being damned.

The Truth is here:
The Catholic Creed: The Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ

From the: CATHOLIC DICTIONARY The Catholic Press, Inc. CHICAGO, ILLINOIS Imprimatur + Samuel Cardinal Stritch Archbishop of Chicago - Chicago, August 5, 1950
Resurrection of Christ. The greatest of all Christ's miracles and the proof of His divine mission. For although He worked many other wonders, yet without His Resurrection, as Saint Paul states (1 Cor. 15:17), our faith would be vain and we would still be in our sins. The reason for this is that resurrection from the dead was the sign which Christ Himself promised as the proof of His divine mission (Matt. 12:38 - 41; John 2:19), and had He failed to return to life on the third day He would have been convicted of being an imposter. His enemies, the priests and Pharisees, understood full well the importance of this sign, and therefore took precautions to seal the tomb and post guards (Matt. 27:62 - 66). Since these arrangements excluded the possibility of fraud, they thereby increased for posterity the certainty of the miracle. The Resurrection was not an apparent return or a mere hallucination of the Apostles, but resumption by Christ of His human body. It is a historical fact attested by witnesses who could neither deceive, wish to deceive, nor be deceived. Those whom the Bible mentions as having seen the Risen Christ include: Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome; the Apostles; Cleophas and another disciple at Emmaus; Saint Paul; more than 500 disciples. Of the fact of Christ's Resurrec­tion, therefore, there can be no doubt (Matt. 28; Mark 16; Luke 24; John 20). The Apostles bore witness to it constantly; in fact, it formed the basis of their entire preaching (e.g., Acts 2:24-32; 2 Cor. 5:15; 2 Tim. 2:8). Not only is it the foundation of our faith; it is also the pledge and example of our own resurrection. Easter Sunday is the Feast of the Resurrection. Resurrection of the Body. The doctrine that the souls of all men, both good and bad, will be reunited to their bodies at the second coming of Christ. Just as the body shares in the good acts or in the sins of the soul in this life, so it will share in its reward or in its punishment in eternity. Each soul will be reunited, by the power of God, to identically the same body which it inhabited in this life. The risen body, will be without any defect of human nature and will be invested with the special qualities of the glorified body. This doctrine is the 11th article of the Creed, and one of the principal doctrines of our Faith. This consoling truth was known to the orthodox Jews of the Old Testament (2 Mach. 7:9-11) and was more clearly and emphatically taught by Our Lord on various occasions (Matt. 22:23-32; John 5: 28-29). Indeed, by Himself rising from the dead, Christ gave us a pattern and a pledge of our own resurrection (1 Cor. 15:20-23; 1 Thess. 4:13); for at His command on the last day our bodies will be restored to us in a condition like to His own glorified body: subject to our souls, and immune from decay, suffering, and death (1 Cor. 15:42-44).

For Psalms see:

Our Lord Jesus Christ taught us to pray -

Mt:6:9-13:9 ¶ Thus therefore shall you pray: Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our supersubstantial bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we also forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation. But deliver us from evil. Amen. 

Not only did Our Lord Jesus Christ teach us to pray that we be delivered from evil (the evil one and all of it's minions), but He gave us power over the evil spirits.


1 ¶ Then calling together the twelve apostles, he gave them power and authority over all devils and to cure diseases. (DRV)

The Apostles following Our Lord Jesus Christ's teaching, taught us to have nothing to do with idolatry and sorcery and magic (which is what the verse below refers to) which is the demons and devils and practices of paganism .

29 That you abstain from things sacrificed to idols and from blood and from things strangled and from fornication: from which things keeping yourselves, you shall do well. Fare ye well. (DRV)

The risen Jesus Christ prophesies of those who will not turn from the demons and devils and practices of paganism.
Rv:9:21:21 Neither did they penance from their murders nor from their sorceries nor from their fornication nor from their thefts. (DRV)

We are to have nothing to do with the demons and devils and practices of paganism - and those who are part of that for they have chosen eternal death (damnation) for themselves.
2Cor:2:14-17:14 Now thanks be to God, who always maketh us to triumph in Christ Jesus and manifesteth the odour of his knowledge by us in every place.
15 For we are the good odour of Christ unto God, in them that are saved and in them that perish.
16 To the one indeed the odour of death unto death: but to the others the odour of life unto life. And for these things who is so sufficient?
17 For we are not as many, adulterating the word of God: but with sincerity: but as from God, before God, in Christ we speak.

Instead we are to remain apart from the demons and devils and practices of paganism and those who are part of that.
2Cor:6:14-18:14 Bear not the yoke with unbelievers. For what participation hath justice with injustice? Or what fellowship hath light with darkness?
15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath the faithful with the unbeliever?
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God: as God saith: I will dwell in them and walk among them. And I will be their God: and they shall be my people.
17 Wherefore: Go out from among them and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing:
18 And I will receive you. And will be a Father to you: and you shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

Since we have been delivered from the power of darkness -
Col:1:13:13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness and hath translated us into the kingdom of the Son of his love, (DRV)

Our first rank of prayer is against evil and the evil powers so that we remain apart from the infidelity of paganism and others are delivered therefrom into the kingdom of Our Only Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. For Our Lord Jesus Christ lives and teaches us that there is no communion of the kingdom of God and paganism, nor can there ever be.
Jn:1:5:5 ¶ And the light shineth in darkness: and the darkness did not comprehend it. (DRV)
Therefore by the power of the Cross of Christ (Jn:3:14) we Pray Against Evil and those who chose to be part of that and the wrath of God remains on them -
Jn:3:14-21,36:14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so must the Son of man be lifted up:
15 That whosoever believeth in him may not perish, but may have life everlasting.
16 For God so loved the world, as to give his only begotten Son: that whosoever believeth in him may not perish, but may have life everlasting.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world, to judge the world: but that the world may be saved by him.
18 He that believeth in him is not judged. But he that doth not believe is already judged: because he believeth not in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the judgment: Because the light is come into the world and men loved darkness rather than the light: for their works were evil.
20 For every one that doth evil hateth the light and cometh not to the light, that his works may not be reproved.
21 But he that doth truth cometh to the light, that his works may be made manifest: because they are done in God.
36 He that believeth in the Son hath life everlasting: but he that believeth not the Son shall not see life: but the wrath of God abideth on him.

The early Church did the same, they Prayed Against Evil and the practitioners thereof, and the Church has always done this. From the Liturgy of St. Mark:

Bless our meetings, O Lord.
Utterly uproot all idolatry from the world.
Crush under our feet Satan.
Humble now, as at all times, the enemies of Thy Church.
Lay bare their pride.
Speedily show them their weakness.
Bring to naught the wicked plots they contrive against us.Arise, O Lord, and let Thine enemies be scattered, and let all who hate Thy holy name be put to flight.
