A vast infernal spirit overshadows our land. In its deepening darkness, madness, wickedness, and evil run rampant throughout our land. We see males as females, females as males, and humans identifying as Zi, Zer, and other such nonsense. There is breakdown of society: thievery of every kind including inflation; terror and murder in the streets, systemic lying, grotesque debauchery and porn, rampant human sacrifice (euthanasia, abortion for any reason), and cannibalization of aborted baby tissue and parts.
Axes are wielded by the wicked against America’s traditional Christian-grounded worldview. Its replacement? Worship of nature: void, matter, energy, and highly evolved god-men politicized as Sustainability, Agenda 2030, the Great Reset, and Transhumanism.
Thus, we see the Constitution ruthlessly trampled underfoot by a completely corrupt, idolatrous ruling class and their greedy global masters—beast men playing at being gods with their genetic modification serums and their global agenda, the infernal Great Reset. The plan is to remake the world via "chaos magic" as instrument of mass destruction and death. Part of this demonic plan is creation of a new man—genetically modified transman—and the purification of the world of genetically evil humans.
Fueling all of this evil is hatred of the Lord our God.
What does all of this add up to?
"... since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, He gave them up to a depraved mind, to do what should not be done." Romans 1:28
"I will make her princes and her wise men drunk, her governors, her prefects and her mighty men, That they may sleep a perpetual sleep and not wake up," declares the King, whose name is the LORD of hosts. (Jeremiah 51:57)
Early Church Father Athanasius explains the fallen human condition and the fatal consequences of rejecting our Creator in favor of satanic idolatry (self-worship) and nature worship of matter, creative energy (evolution), water, fire, and air.
God has made man, said Athanasius, and willed that he should abide in incorruption; but men, having despised and rejected the Transcendent Reality—the higher things and authority of God, devised and contrived evil for themselves, thereby receiving,
"... the condemnation of death with which they had been threatened; and from thenceforth no longer remained as they were made, but were being corrupted according to their devices; and death had the mastery over them as king." (On the Incarnation of the Word, Athanasius)
In willfully falling away from the transcendent knowledge of the Lord our God and just as willfully transgressing against His commandments, God gives them over to wickedness and madness. This action effectively turns them back to their natural state and back to nothing in due time.
For just as God spoke all things and life out of nothing (Genesis 1), this means man’s being has been from nothing as well. Thus,
"...they might look for corruption into nothing in the course of time. For if, out of a former normal state of non-existence they were called into being by the Presence and loving-kindness of the Word, it followed naturally that when men were bereft of the knowledge of God and were turned back to what was not (for what is evil is not, but what is good is), they should, since they derive their being from God who IS, be everlastingly bereft even of being; in other words, that they should be disintegrated and abide in death and corruption. For man is by nature mortal, inasmuch as he is made out of what is not; but by reason of his likeness to Him that is (and if he still preserved this likeness by keeping Him in his knowledge) he would stay his natural corruption, and remain incorrupt; as Wisdom 6:18 says: "The taking heed to His laws is the assurance of immortality" but being incorrupt, he would live henceforth as God, to which I suppose the divine Scripture refers, when it says: "I have said you are gods, and you are all sons of the most Highest; but you die like men, and fall as one of the princes."
The fool who has said in his heart, there is no God (Psalm 14:1) has effectively said to the Creator and sustainer of life and being, "You are not my Father."
The rejection of Father God is for soul and its citadel, spirit (intellect, will, conscience) to disintegrate into the void (nothing) from which men have been called. Thus, the condemned abide increasingly in madness, stupidity, death and corruption even though he or she still lives and is mainly blind to the effects of disintegration and madness:
“But understand this: In the last days terrible times will come. For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy…” 2 Timothy 3: 1-2
In his Lord of the Rings trilogy, Tolkien ingeniously makes 'visible' the invisible process of inner disintegration into nothing and resulting madness and evil with Grima Wormtongue (human kind), Gollum (Hobbit-kind), Orcs (Elf-kind), and other decayed and decaying characters.
Our Lord and Savior, the Living Word spoke all things into existence from nothing and has said:
".... I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing, therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life..."Deuteronomy 30:19-20
The Second Person of the Holy Trinity, the Word become Flesh, Jesus Christ the Physician came to heal the spiritually sick. But whoever rejects the Physician, whether through indifference or hatred and outright denial, rejects His prescription, hence destroys him or herself.
Destruction however, does not mean annihilation of the soul as is commonly thought today. The soul, though immortal, said St. Augustine, nevertheless suffers a kind of death when the living God forsakes it:
"...in that penal and everlasting punishment.... the soul is...said to die because it does not live in connection with God (meaning that) though man does not cease to feel, yet because this feeling is neither sweet... nor wholesome (but) painfully penal, it is (called) death rather than life." (St. Augustine's City of God, Chapter 2, Of that Death Which Can Affect an Immortal Soul, and of that to Which the Body is Subject)
