Fight the right battle. 

You feel like you’re spinning your wheels, laboring till you’re exhausted but seeing little permanent fruit. You’re depressed that certain relationships are a perpetual painful morass. You’re frustrated that the numerous “prescriptions” of faith that you’ve tried are not working. I get it. We expend a lot of energy fighting the wrong battles, and such futility is an underlying cause of anxiety.

This episode explores how to fight the right battle: how to work with the Holy Spirit for lasting peace rather than against Him. Our focus is on temporary relief, while His is on our permanent rest in Him. So we must determine to lean into the difficulties He allows and “suffer creatively,” as St. John of the Cross says. 

Overview:

Minutes 00:12:00 – Biblical definition of sin as destruction and “stain”; sin we commit and sin committed against us, and the anxiety effect

Minutes 12:01-24:00 –  Predominant fault and particular vices; identifying patterns in relationships and circumstances  

Minutes 24:01-36:00 – Historical emotions and woundedness as the root of predominant fault

Minutes 36:01-48:00 – The real battle and the real authority

It may seem like an oxymoron, but rest is a discipline.

The number one thing you need to know in battling anxiety is that it does not come from God. “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and self-control” (2 Tim 1:7). Anxiety is an attack of the enemy, therefore we must close the doors of vulnerability that our unresolved experiences in life have left open. What are those doors? This episode explores the open doors and how to close them once and for all.

WHAT WE DISCUSSED | SHOW NOTES

Overview:

Minutes 00:12:00 – Biblical rest as “one, peace, rest”–giving over, blissful relaxation–that “transcends” human understanding, meaning “to hold above, rise above, to be superior.”

Minutes 12:01-24:00 –  Simple biblical command is: do not worry. Have no anxiety. Worry = “to strangle, to choke.” 

Minutes 24:01-36:00 – The root of anxiety as demonic harassment; divine biblical law is to forgive until complete; soul ties

Minutes 36:01-48:00 – Open doors: unforgiveness, soul ties, predominant fault

St. Joseph is stepping into a more visible role in the Church right now, and inviting you to develop a relationship with him. In learning about his roles as prophet, priest, and king of the Holy Family and prince of the Church, we get to know him more personally, and how he operates in those roles on our behalf. In conclusion of our series, I’d like to leave you with a list of prayers for the Year of St. Joseph, here at this link.

Every man is called to fatherhood and priesthood by virtue of his masculinity. Like Abraham, the Father of Faith, whose faith was “accounted” to him as righteousness, St. Joseph’s accumulated acts of sacrificial faith in his role of father and priest of the Holy Family formed him and made him capable for his larger role as the Pillar of Families for the whole Church.

In accepting and receiving our men, faults and all–husbands, sons, priests, fathers–we receive Joseph, in a sense. We participate in nurturing their role as priests and fathers knowing that St. Joseph works through them on our behalf in, with, and through Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit.

In this episode we explore Old Testament Joseph’s life, because in order to understand St. Joseph as patron of the Church, we must know something of his ancestor, OT Joseph, for whom he is named. Psalm 105 gives us a snapshot of OT Joseph, and a prophecy of NT Joseph:

When he summoned a famine on the land, and broke every staff of bread, he had sent a man ahead of them, Joseph, who was sold as a slave. His feet were hurt with fetters, his neck was put in a collar of iron; until what he had said came to pass the word of the Lord tested him. The king sent and released him, the ruler of the peoples set him free; he made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his possessions, to instruct his princes at his pleasure, and to teach his elders wisdom” (Ps 105:16-22, emphasis mine).

Week 7 | Psalm 143 [142]

 

A Psalm of David.

143 Hear my prayer, O Lord;
give ear to my supplications!
    In thy faithfulness answer me, in thy righteousness!
Enter not into judgment with thy servant;
    for no man living is righteous before thee.

For the enemy has pursued me;
    he has crushed my life to the ground;
    he has made me sit in darkness like those long dead.
Therefore my spirit faints within me;
    my heart within me is appalled.

I remember the days of old,
    I meditate on all that thou hast done;
    I muse on what thy hands have wrought.
I stretch out my hands to thee;
    my soul thirsts for thee like a parched land. Selah

Make haste to answer me, O Lord!
    My spirit fails!
Hide not thy face from me,
    lest I be like those who go down to the Pit.
Let me hear in the morning of thy steadfast love,
    for in thee I put my trust.
Teach me the way I should go,
    for to thee I lift up my soul.

Deliver me, O Lord, from my enemies!
    I have fled to thee for refuge!
10 Teach me to do thy will,
    for thou art my God!
Let thy good spirit lead me
    on a level path!

11 For thy name’s sake, O Lord, preserve my life!
    In thy righteousness bring me out of trouble!
12 And in thy steadfast love cut off my enemies,
    and destroy all my adversaries,
    for I am thy servant.

Week 6 | Psalm 130 [129]

 

A Song of Ascents

130 Out of the depths I cry to thee, O Lord!
Lord, hear my voice!
Let thy ears be attentive
    to the voice of my supplications!

If thou, O Lord, shouldst mark iniquities,
    Lord, who could stand?
But there is forgiveness with thee,
    that thou mayest be feared.

I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
    and in his word I hope;
my soul waits for the Lord
    more than watchmen for the morning,
    more than watchmen for the morning.

O Israel, hope in the Lord!
    For with the Lord there is steadfast love,
    and with him is plenteous redemption.
And he will redeem Israel
    from all his iniquities.

Week 5 | Psalm 102 [101]

 

A prayer of one afflicted, when he is faint and pours out his complaint before the Lord.

102 Hear my prayer, O Lord;
let my cry come to thee!
Do not hide thy face from me
    in the day of my distress!
Incline thy ear to me;
    answer me speedily in the day when I call!

For my days pass away like smoke,
    and my bones burn like a furnace.
My heart is smitten like grass, and withered;
    I forget to eat my bread.
Because of my loud groaning
    my bones cleave to my flesh.
I am like a vulture of the wilderness,
    like an owl of the waste places;
I lie awake,
    I am like a lonely bird on the housetop.
All the day my enemies taunt me,
    those who deride me use my name for a curse.
For I eat ashes like bread,
    and mingle tears with my drink,
10 because of thy indignation and anger;
    for thou hast taken me up and thrown me away.
11 My days are like an evening shadow;
    I wither away like grass.

12 But thou, O Lord, art enthroned for ever;
    thy name endures to all generations.
13 Thou wilt arise and have pity on Zion;
    it is the time to favor her;
    the appointed time has come.
14 For thy servants hold her stones dear,
    and have pity on her dust.
15 The nations will fear the name of the Lord,
    and all the kings of the earth thy glory.
16 For the Lord will build up Zion,
    he will appear in his glory;
17 he will regard the prayer of the destitute,
    and will not despise their supplication.

18 Let this be recorded for a generation to come,
    so that a people yet unborn may praise the Lord:
19 that he looked down from his holy height,
    from heaven the Lord looked at the earth,
20 to hear the groans of the prisoners,
    to set free those who were doomed to die;
21 that men may declare in Zion the name of the Lord,
    and in Jerusalem his praise,
22 when peoples gather together,
    and kingdoms, to worship the Lord.

23 He has broken my strength in midcourse;
    he has shortened my days.
24 “O my God,” I say, “take me not hence
    in the midst of my days,
thou whose years endure
    throughout all generations!”

25 Of old thou didst lay the foundation of the earth,
    and the heavens are the work of thy hands.
26 They will perish, but thou dost endure;
    they will all wear out like a garment.
Thou changest them like raiment, and they pass away;
27     but thou art the same, and thy years have no end.
28 The children of thy servants shall dwell secure;
    their posterity shall be established before thee.

Week 4 | Psalm 51 [50]

 

TO THE CHOIRMASTER. A PSALM OF DAVID, WHEN NATHAN THE PROPHET CAME TO HIM, AFTER HE HAD GONE IN TO BATHSHEBA.

51 Have mercy on me, O God, according to thy steadfast love;
    according to thy abundant mercy blot out my transgressions.
Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
    and cleanse me from my sin!

For I know my transgressions,
    and my sin is ever before me.
Against thee, thee only, have I sinned,
    and done that which is evil in thy sight,
so that thou art justified in thy sentence
    and blameless in thy judgment.
Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity,
    and in sin did my mother conceive me.

Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward being;
    therefore teach me wisdom in my secret heart.
Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
    wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
Fill me with joy and gladness;
    let the bones which thou hast broken rejoice.
Hide thy face from my sins,
    and blot out all my iniquities.

10 Create in me a clean heart, O God,
    and put a new and right spirit within me.
11 Cast me not away from thy presence,
    and take not thy holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the joy of thy salvation,
    and uphold me with a willing spirit.

13 Then I will teach transgressors thy ways,
    and sinners will return to thee.
14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God,
    thou God of my salvation,
    and my tongue will sing aloud of thy deliverance.

15 O Lord, open thou my lips,
    and my mouth shall show forth thy praise.
16 For thou hast no delight in sacrifice;
    were I to give a burnt offering, thou wouldst not be pleased.
17 The sacrifice acceptable to God is a broken spirit;
    a broken and contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

18 Do good to Zion in thy good pleasure;
    rebuild the walls of Jerusalem,
19 then wilt thou delight in right sacrifices,
    in burnt offerings and whole burnt offerings;
    then bulls will be offered on thy altar.

psalm-38.jpg

 

Week 3 | Psalm 38 [37]

 

A Psalm of David, for the memorial offering.

38 Lord, rebuke me not in thy anger,
    nor chasten me in thy wrath!
For thy arrows have sunk into me,
    and thy hand has come down on me.

There is no soundness in my flesh
    because of thy indignation;
there is no health in my bones
    because of my sin.
For my iniquities have gone over my head;
    they weigh like a burden too heavy for me.

My wounds grow foul and fester
    because of my foolishness,
I am utterly bowed down and prostrate;
    all the day I go about mourning.
For my loins are filled with burning,
    and there is no soundness in my flesh.
I am utterly spent and crushed;
    I groan because of the tumult of my heart.

Lord, all my longing is known to thee,
    my sighing is not hidden from thee.
10 My heart throbs, my strength fails me;
    and the light of my eyes—it also has gone from me.
11 My friends and companions stand aloof from my plague,
    and my kinsmen stand afar off.

12 Those who seek my life lay their snares,
    those who seek my hurt speak of ruin,
    and meditate treachery all the day long.

13 But I am like a deaf man, I do not hear,
    like a dumb man who does not open his mouth.
14 Yea, I am like a man who does not hear,
    and in whose mouth are no rebukes.

15 But for thee, O Lord, do I wait;
    it is thou, O Lord my God, who wilt answer.
16 For I pray, “Only let them not rejoice over me,
    who boast against me when my foot slips!”

17 For I am ready to fall,
    and my pain is ever with me.
18 I confess my iniquity,
    I am sorry for my sin.
19 Those who are my foes without cause are mighty,
    and many are those who hate me wrongfully.
20 Those who render me evil for good
    are my adversaries because I follow after good.

21 Do not forsake me, O Lord!
    O my God, be not far from me!
22 Make haste to help me,
    O Lord, my salvation!

Week 2 | Psalm 32 [31]

 

The Joy of Forgiveness

A Psalm of David. A Maskil.

32 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,
    whose sin is covered.
Blessed is the man to whom the Lord imputes no iniquity,
    and in whose spirit there is no deceit.

When I declared not my sin, my body wasted away
    through my groaning all day long.
For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me;
    my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer. Selah

I acknowledged my sin to thee,
    and I did not hide my iniquity;
I said, “I will confess my trangressions to the Lord”;
    then thou didst forgive the guilt of my sin. Selah

Therefore let every one who is godly
    offer prayer to thee;
at a time of distress, in the rush of great waters,
    they shall not reach him.
Thou art a hiding place for me,
    thou preservest me from trouble;
    thou dost encompass me with deliverance. Selah

I will instruct you and teach you
    the way you should go;
    I will counsel you with my eye upon you.
Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding,
    which must be curbed with bit and bridle,
    else it will not keep with you.

10 Many are the pangs of the wicked;
    but steadfast love surrounds him who trusts in the Lord.
11 Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous,
    and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!

Week 1 | Psalm 6

 

To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments; according to The Sheminith. A Psalm of David.

Lord, rebuke me not in thy anger,
nor chasten me in thy wrath.
Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am languishing;
    Lord, heal me, for my bones are troubled.
My soul also is sorely troubled.
    But thou, O Lord—how long?

Turn, O Lord, save my life;
    deliver me for the sake of thy steadfast love.
For in death there is no remembrance of thee;
    in Sheol who can give thee praise?

I am weary with my moaning;
    every night I flood my bed with tears;
    I drench my couch with my weeping.
My eye wastes away because of grief,
    it grows weak because of all my foes.

Depart from me, all you workers of evil;
    for the Lord has heard the sound of my weeping.
The Lord has heard my supplication;
    the Lord accepts my prayer.
10 All my enemies shall be ashamed and sorely troubled;
    they shall turn back, and be put to shame in a moment.

“Antichrist will be of Jewish extraction, of the tribe of Dan, will be circumcised, will rebuild Jerusalem and the Jewish temple, in which he will set himself up as God. Likewise he is to begin his work of seduction among the Jews who will accept him as their Messiah. Thus Irenaeus says of Antichrist: ‘Jeremiah does not merely point out his sudden coming, but he even indicates the tribe from which he shall come, where he says, “We shall hear the voice of his swift horses from Dan–he shall come and devour the earth”‘ (Jer 8:16).” -1936 Catholic Encyclopedia

WHAT WE DISCUSSED | SHOW NOTES

Scripture References for the Show

The Antichrist will offer a social justice messianism, through which outward forms of worship will be gutted of their power (2 Tim 3:5).  

Background on Dan, “Dan” meaning “judge”

  • Genesis 30, Dan born of Rachel’s maid Bilhah
  • Genesis 31, Rachael takes her father’s idols
  • Genesis 49:16-17, Prophecy of Dan as judge of his people
  • Judges 17-18, Story of Dan’s idolatry
  • 1 Kings 29-30, Jeroboam sets up idolatrous worship center in Dan
  • Jeremiah 18:6, Irenaeus quotes this verse in Against Heresies to indicate Antichrist will be Jewish, from the tribe of Dan. Sts. Hippolytus, Augustine, Prosper, Gregory the Great, and others all believe Antichrist will be Jewish, from the tribe of Dan.

John 5:43, “I am come in the name of my Father, and you receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him you will receive.”

Minutes 36:01-48:00 – Old Testament exploration of “Dan”

SONJA’S IMPORTANT ESCHATOLOGICAL QUALIFICATION

Catholic eschatology is what’s called “speculative theology.” This designation means little has been defined by the Magisterium concerning the end times, so the subject is open for speculation and development by Catholics seeking truth via Sacred Tradition (history) and Sacred Scripture. I attempt throughout the series to make clear what is public revelation and therefore part of the Deposit of Faith, and what is approved private revelation and not a matter of adherence.

Dr. Scott Hahn most recently put forth the liturgical and historical interpretation of the Book of Revelation without alleging that there is no end times application. Many non-Catholics hold to either this interpretation or an eschatological interpretation; the Church maintains that the proper interpretation is not either history or prophecy, but both history and prophecy, as biblical prophecy and apocalyptic literature always is: there is usually more than one fulfillment of prophecy.

Because much of eschatology is a matter of speculative theology, we are free to ruminate and speculate.

Trial, Tribulation, and Triumph: Before, During, and After Antichrist, by Desmond Birch

Early Church (Ante-Nicene Fathers

Didache

‘In things of faith and morals, the true sense of Holy Scripture is held by the Church, whose place it is to judge the interpretation of the Scriptures (1 Tim 3:15); and it is permitted to no one to interpret Holy Scripture against such sense or against the unanimous agreement of the Fathers'( 34). ‘What can be a greater sign of pride than to refuse to study the Books of the divine mysteries by the help of those who have interpreted them?’ (37, Providentissimus Deus).

“In all of Christ’s disciples the Spirit arouses the desire to be peacefully united, in the manner determined by Christ, as one flock under one shepherd. The journey of the Church, especially in our own time, is marked by the sign of ecumenism: Christians are seeking ways to restore that unity which Christ implored from the Father for his disciples on the day before his Passion: ‘That they may all be one; even as you, Father, are in me, and I in you that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me’ (Jn. 17:21). The unity of Christ’s disciples, therefore, is a great sign given in order to kindle faith in the world while their division constitutes a scandal” (Redemptoris Mater, St. John Paul II).

“The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, and various nations will be destroyed…But in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph…and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world.

Have you put the pieces together yet? Over the last several decades, Ch1n@ has bought (controls) enough decision makers in politics; entertainment; media; sports; medicine; science; finance; and education, that, together, they have manufactured enough mass-scare events to condition the country (world) to accept with increasing intensity the control and moral confusion of C0mmunism. The fake elec7ion was simply to keep the gravy train running. The American taxpayer is the global cash cow. Ch1n@ has succeeded where the Soviet Union never could: they have succeeded in taking over the country without firing a shot. Expect a big disarmament event at anytime.

Maybe you think it’s all fine. Your choice. Jesus said discern the times, and there is enough information to reveal the big picture, now, although you have to look for it.

So now what?

You know that feeling you’ve had for about a month, that *something big is coming*? That foreboding, anxiety, and unexplainable – dare I say – weird excitement? Yeah, me too. I believe God is about to do something apocalyptic, something wondrous, something on the scale of the Illumination of Conscience, in which the whole world is affected. What is it? I don’t know, I only know something is coming. The daily readings have been full of this.

I haven’t talked to anyone who knows what to “do.” I, personally, have only been told “PREACH.” So I think we have to wait for instructions from the Holy Spirit. But get ready.

Yes, we are at the end. But not the end, end. There are still quite a few events that Scripture tells us about that have not yet occurred.

But we are closer than ever before, as for the first time in history there is a global economic system coming online early this year, and because of Covid nations are cooperating in ways they never have before. But before the end, some glorious things will happen too.

The vowels necessary to pronounce the sacred Name of God, revealed to Moses in the burning bush, are found again in the Hebrew name of Jesus, Emmanuel, with the addition of the consonants from the verb “to save.”

“In this way, while the Name of God is so holy, mysterious, and pure that it cannot be pronounced by a human mouth, the addition of Christ’s divine will to save mankind “translates,” that is, transfers, the sanctity of God to our level as creatures and at last makes it possible for us, too, to pronounce God’s true Name, which cannot be any other than Jesus, and thus be saved. All else that we subsequently come to know about God rests on this primary revelation: He is the One who saves us in Jesus” (Vol. 1 of Fire of Mercy, Heart of the Word).

“In a word, the kingdom of God is the manifestation and the realization of God’s plan of salvation in all its fullness. The kingdom of God is not a concept, a doctrine, or a program subject to free interpretation, but is before all else a person with the face and name of Jesus of Nazareth, the image of the invisible God” (Redemptoris Missio, 15, 23).

The kingdom you live for is the kingdom you’re building. The kingdom you’re building is the kingdom you experience. If you’re not experiencing peace in an area of your life (domain), you are being influenced by the enemy and are unconsciously allowing him to steal your rightful domain. “For the kingdom of God is righteousness, peace and joy” (Rom 14:17).
