The Gospel of John – Introduction.
“… The gospel contains many details about Jesus not found in the synoptic gospels, e.g., that Jesus engaged in a baptizing ministry (Jn 3:22) before he changed to one of preaching and signs; that Jesus’ public ministry lasted for several years (see note on Jn 2:13); that he traveled to Jerusalem for various festivals and met serious opposition long before his death (Jn 2:14–25; 5; 7–8); and that he was put to death on the day before Passover (Jn 18:28). These events are not always in chronological order because of the development and editing that took place. However, the accuracy of much of the detail of the fourth gospel constitutes a strong argument that the Johannine tradition rests upon the testimony of an eyewitness. Although tradition identified this person as John, the son of Zebedee, most modern scholars find that the evidence does not support this.
The fourth gospel is not simply history; the narrative has been organized and adapted to serve the evangelist’s theological purposes as well. Among them are the opposition to the synagogue of the day and to John the Baptist’s followers, who tried to exalt their master at Jesus’ expense, the desire to show that Jesus was the Messiah, and the desire to convince Christians that their religious belief and practice must be rooted in Jesus. Such theological purposes have impelled the evangelist to emphasize motifs that were not so clear in the synoptic account of Jesus’ ministry, e.g., the explicit emphasis on his divinity.
The polemic between synagogue and church produced bitter and harsh invective, especially regarding the hostility toward Jesus of the authorities—Pharisees and Sadducees—who are combined and referred to frequently as “the Jews” (see note on Jn 1:19). These opponents are even described in Jn 8:44 as springing from their father the devil, whose conduct they imitate in opposing God by rejecting Jesus, whom God has sent. On the other hand, the author of this gospel seems to take pains to show that women are not inferior to men in the Christian community: the woman at the well in Samaria (Jn 4) is presented as a prototype of a missionary (Jn 4:4–42), and the first witness of the resurrection is a woman (Jn 20:11–18) ….”
Comment: The introduction was 2 pages long, but we only read part of it. You might think that we should close and re-open the book, but we don’t do this in circumstances such as this, for after all, we pray to the Holy Spirit before opening the books. We thought that what we read was to alert us to why this Gospel is written in such a different manner with its various emphases. We know that the FP/PF often twists and distorts Scripture. We need to be more familiar with these things, because when a new Mass Book finally comes out, we have to be able to recognize what is false, so that we are not deceived. This is confirmed in the last reading from the BoT “…Slowly you will no longer recognise My Holy Scripture…”. The other reading talks about the medal and the protection it offers. All the readings today n, indeed, seem to be about our “protection” – the theme of the prayers today.
Readings from the Book of Truth
Earthquakes will be of such magnitude that they will be felt across multiple countries, at the same time
20 February 2014 @ 6:39pm
My dearly beloved daughter, when the time comes for Me to make Myself known, at My Second Coming, you will not recognise the world, for it will have changed so much.
The speed at which humanity will fall into the depths of sin will shock you. Every ugly sin of the flesh will be visible and many will have to watch these sins committed in public places. Very little shame will be shown by the culprits who, like lions in a feeding frenzy, will sink to the lowest depths of depravity, not seen since the days of Sodom and Gomorrah. Such will the infestation of humanity be, brought about by the evil one, that murders will be committed everywhere and suicide will be rampant. As Satan devours souls, he will ensure that every Law laid down by My Father will be broken. Cold hearts, barren souls and obsession with false gods and evil spirits, will replace the love, which still exists at this time in the world.
My Name will be used to mouth obscenities and they will curse one another in their hearts. My daughter, the Truth can be unbearable at times, but justice will be handed down, by My Father, upon those lands which desecrate His Word. All the punishments handed down by My Father will take place before My Second Coming. Cities will disappear, countries will be awash with the tides of My Father’s Anger and earthquakes will be of such magnitude, that they will be felt across multiple countries, at the same time.
My daughter, you have already been given the information about those cities, which will suffer greatly. You must offer Me your tears, in atonements for the sins of those whose fate lies in darkness. Without your suffering, I cannot do what is needed to save these souls. So please, be generous with your pain and I will show Mercy, for those whom you place before Me.
Mountains will sink, lakes will merge with the seas and lands will be reduced by one third. Rainfall, which matches My Tears of Sorrow, because of the hatred in men’s hearts, will be constant, until My Tears are wiped away, through the reconciliation of sinners, who will be converted.
Know now, that Gifts given to the world by My Mother, over the centuries, must be used to protect yourselves. Know also, that the Medal of Salvation – more powerful than any other – will be your defense against the lure of the antichrist. Every attempt will be made to stop the Medal of Salvation, but nothing will stop the Powers associated with this Gift.
My beloved followers, you must focus on prayer in these days and place all your trust in Me, for those who are Mine will be protected and you will be My reason for showing Mercy to the afflicted and the heathen. You must never weaken or give up, because if you do, you will find this path towards Me impossible to navigate without My Light, which will be needed every step of the way, if you are to complete this journey.
Masonry has infiltrated My Church, on earth, and soon the schism, as foretold, will create division and disquiet amongst My faithful servants
13 February 2013 @ 11:20am
My dearly beloved daughter, there is a rage in Heaven, at this time, as the Crown of Thorns descend to crush My Body, the Catholic Church, on earth.
This prophecy given to you, in much detail, over the last two years, has come to pass. Now, as My other Revelations will soon be realized, very few of My sacred servants will be able to ignore My Pleas to the human race, at this ungodly hour in your time.
They, the wicked group have begun their campaign, to rid the earth of the Truth of My Teachings. My Holy Vicar has been forced into this action and will suffer greatly as a result. Masonry has infiltrated My Churchon earth and soon the schism, as foretold, will create division and disquiet amongst My faithful servants.
Many have no idea as to the deceit with which they are being presented. Nor do they know that the foundation of My Church, the Catholic Church, has been crushed to dust. In its place, will rise the abomination and I will intervene and send signs in order to warn every soul of the importance of praying, so that they can discern Truth from fiction.
It is not the collapse of the Catholic Church, which will soon become evident, which will divide the world. It will be their involvement in the creation of a New World Church, a one-world religion, which will introduce paganism and idolatry.
The false prophet has prepared well and his time is coming. In collaboration with the antichristthey will bring the world to its knees. It won’t be to God they will pay homage, it will be to the beast.
I urge all My disciples, My Christian followers, everywhere, to remain calm. Pray for peace and allow Me, your Jesus, to guide you at this time.
I call on all of My cardinals, My bishops and My sacred servants, to unite your flock and remain loyal to My Teachings. Pay close attention to what you will be asked to preach for it will change. Your homilies will be devised and written for a secular world and they will have no substance.
In a bid, to be seen to modernise the Catholic Church, this is what will be presented to you -the promotion of all-inclusive congregations – all religions rolled into one, so-called Christian Unified Church. All the outward signs may, at first, seem the same, but that is what you are meant to see. Slowly you will no longer recognise My Holy Scripture,as new words, phrases and new formats to the presentation of the Sacramentswill be placed before you.
There will be a panic amongst those true loyal conservative priests who will be alarmed at the new modern format the Church will embrace when they will re-launch a new type of modern alternative Church.
It will be through the network of masonry, which is infiltrated in every corner of the Catholic Church, governments and the media, that this abomination will be presented as a great innovation.
This is the beginning of the end. My Presence will be discreetly banished for the new ceremony of the Masses.
All the pomp and ceremony will mask an empty tabernacle, for My Divine Presence, will no longer be permitted, by My Father.
You must remain united and, if you are Catholic, continue to attend daily Masses and Holy Communion. For all Christians you must know that, you too, will be lured into the New World Religion, plotted by nations who are in league with the traitors of My Catholic Church. They wish to create a secular, humanistic, façade – a façade, which masks the evil it will promote, subtly.
The battle has begun, but you, My beloved followers, are stronger than you think. I Am here always. I have prepared you well. You must, to survive, say this Crusade Prayer.
Crusade of Prayer (100) For the survival of Christianity
O dear Jesus, we beg You for the skills to survive the trials we now face, as the last True Pope finishes his Mission for You.
Help us to sustain the terrible abuse we will now have to face because of the collapse of the Church, which we once knew.
Never let us deviate from the Truth of Your Divine Word.
Help us to remain silent when the attacks are placed upon our shoulders to entice us to turn our backs on You and the Sacraments you gave the world.
Cover Your Army with the powerful Love we need, like a shield, to protect us against the false prophet and the antichrist.
Help Your Church on earth to spread and multiply, so that they can adhere to the Truth and help you lead our brothers and sisters on the Path of Truth to prepare ourselves, adequately, for Your Second Coming. Amen.
Do not fret, My followers. Everything is in My Sacred Hands.Be patient. Do not justify any of your actions, in My Name, for when you do this, you defend My Word, when all you need to do is to proclaim My Word.
Thank you, Jesus for being with us to guide us today.
