The Anti Christ spirit has been alive and well, and rebellious, since Lucifer in Heaven, along with his band of like minded merry makers, leaving the Godhead forever to form their own power and nefarious interpretations cast out by I AM from Heaven, free to a point to tempt man to do the same.
Then along came Judas, again breaking from the inside, betraying God in Christ Jesus, for silver.
Power and silver.
This proximity to God in His Church, where He is found in form and substance, is exactly where Satan will always want to stir, as his power is increased. The Catholic Church must be slandered and mortally wounded by her enemies on the ground and in the air. The Church shall be greatly wounded. She shall not be mortally wounded, but a remnant refined as silver.
From the 12 that Jesus chose he was doubted, denied and betrayed, yet there are some that are both incredulous and delighted when it is found that His Church is still comprised of flawed human beings. Pray for them.
Peace be to you
