The Book of Truth, St Francis of Assisi, St Bonaventure and Joseph Ratzinger and Era of peace
“…St Bonaventure, the seventh leader of the Franciscan Order, after having a mystical experience on Mount La Verna (the site of St Francis’ stigmatisation)…”
As Joseph Ratzinger reminds us in “The Theology of History in St Bonaventure”, the Stigmata of St Francis reveals him as the angel in the Book of Revelation who ascends ‘from the rising of the sun’ and carries ‘the seal of the living God’ and has power to seal the ‘servants of God in their foreheads’ (Revelation 7:2).
St Bonaventure and Ratzinger both contend that St Francis will in the future bring about a new Order of Franciscans who will emulate the original perfection that Francis manifested and will usher in an era of Peace in the world, in preparation for the final coming of Christ.
For me, (except for the Book of Truth) the key prophecy foretelling the state of the papacy today, has always been that of St. Francis of Assisi. To teach people the Truth, you have to start with something that people will be able to accept. Who would question St Francis?
“ 2. The devils will have unusual power, the immaculate purity of our Order, and of others, will be so much obscured that there will be very few Christians who will obey the true Sovereign Pontiff and the Roman Church with loyal hearts and perfect charity. At the time of this tribulation a man, not canonically elected, will be raised to the Pontificate, who, by his cunning, will endeavour to draw many into error and death.
“3. Then scandals will be multiplied, our Order will be divided, and many others will be entirely destroyed, because they will consent to error instead of opposing it.
“4. There will be such diversity of opinions and schisms among the people, the religious and the clergy, that, except those days were shortened, according to the words of the Gospel, even the elect would be led into error, were they not specially guided, amid such great confusion, by the immense mercy of God.”
“7. Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it under foot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor, but a destroyer.”
The previous quote (from “Jesus risen”) above tells us much more – indeed of a connection between St Francis, St Bonaventure and Pope Benedict – specifically – about the “Seal of the Living God”, the “era of peace” and the “final coming of Christ”.
This, indeed, is Good News. Because, when people are afraid to read the Book of Truth, we have other sources to quote, to lead them towards the Truth.
The Book of Revelation tells us about the “Seal on the foreheads” and how this Seal was carried by an angel, before people were sealed with it on their foreheads. Therefore, this “Seal of the Living God” is both an object, as well as a mark (an indelible, spiritual mark that sets us aside as belonging to God).
“…Then I saw another angel come up from the East, holding the seal of the living God. He cried out in a loud voice to the four angels who were given power to damage the land and the sea,
3“Do not damage the land or the sea or the trees until we put the seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.”
4 I heard the number of those who had been marked with the seal, one hundred and forty-four thousand marked from every tribe of the Israelites: …”
“ And I beheld, and lo a lamb stood upon mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty-four thousand, having his name, and the name of his Father, written on their forehead.”
This concept is not surprising . Kings have always had seals to mark their Kingship and their property. In the days of old, a king‘s seal (on a letter, for example) would give protection to those who bore it.
Therefore it is to be noted, that Pope Benedict (Ratzinger), in quoting St Bonaventure, recognizes the significance of this Seal.
In this unbelieving and deceptive world, however, the fact that we have a “Seal of the Living God” mentioned in the Book of Truth, is held as being wrong, or even heretical, when we print it and put it in our homes for protection, or wear it as a scapular. Most priests dismiss it as soon as they know that it comes from the Book of Truth. They say it is simply a “spiritual mark”. However, Scripture itself refutes this.
It is so reassuring, therefore, in knowing that there is a saint, and our dearly beloved Pope Benedict, that holds this to be true. There have been many testimonies, as to the power of this “Seal”. By possessing it, and praying the prayer that goes with it, we are marked spiritually with an indelible mark that sets us aside.
Book of Truth On “the Seal” (extracts from messages)
“My promise is this, children. I will protect all of My children who have the seal of My love embedded in their souls. You will be spared the persecution so that you remain strong to pray with all your might for these wicked people. (God of The Most High, February 14, 2012)
I desire to take all of you, loving children, who know and understand My Love for you, into My beautiful New Paradise on earth. I promise you, that the persecution will be swift, and that you will be protected. For I now bequeath the Seal of My Love and Protection. With this, you will escape the notice of those who will cause hardship in your countries. My Seal is My promise of Salvation. My Power will surge through you, with this Seal, and no harm will come to you. This is a miracle, children, and only those who bow before Me, their Lord and Creator of all things, as little children with love in their hearts for Me, can be blessed with this Divine Gift. (God of The Most High, February 20, 2012)
My daughter the time has come for the first of the seals to be broken and how this saddens Me. I have promised that before this happens I will offer My Seal of Protection on the foreheads of all those who believe in Me. Now I give you, children, a last chance to stand up and decide. You are either for Me or against Me. The choice is yours. If you accept My Seal of Love you will be within My protection at all times. This protection will cover your families. This is My final call to offer you My Seal of Love. To those who know Me, and accept My Seal, know that you will have eternal life. (God of The Most High, February 21, 2012)

New readers might like to know also that the Book of Truth is fulfilment of Scripture:
Bible: USCCB – U .S. Conference of Catholic Bishops
“ but I shall tell you what is written in the book of truth. No one supports me against these except Michael, your prince,”
In this final battle of Good against Evil, God would not forsake His people.
The Seal of the Living God described in the Book of Revelation and the Book of Truth is the fulfilment of that promise!!!
