We ARE in Lent: in more ways than one!

AM+DG

(This post refers to our JtM Prayer group meetings on 28th Feb; and on the 7th March. This post is about our meeting and the actual messages read on 7th March, 2019.  (See  https://remnantdisciplesjtm.com/2019/03/09/jtm-crusade-prayer-meeting-on-thurs-7th-march-2019/  for the exact words of the readings.)

The themes seemed to be a continuation from our last Thursday Meeting on 28 Feb. (Last week’s we had already discussed: See:   https://remnantdisciplesjtm.com/2019/03/08/the-modern-day-king-herod-and-the-thorn-in-his-side-cardinal-pell/ )

It seems that Jesus had an interesting sequence of messages planned for us and He is drawing attention to the season. Not just the literal season but our ‘season’ in Biblical History. He is drawing our attention to the signs of the times as He warns us in the Gospels:

“Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near, so also, when you see all these things, you know that he is near, right at the very gates.” (Matt. 24: 32-35)

Read all of Matthew Chapter 24 (see http://www.usccb.org/bible/matthew/24  ) and pray for understanding about the signs being provided.

So why do I say that Jesus was drawing attention to the parallel of the seasons? Between the Catholic Church, the world and His Word?

Several things are overlapping in the history of His Church, in her current season- which is one of mourning (for the extent of child abuse, for the killing and persecution of true brothers and sisters in Christ and for the abandonment of true Teaching focusing on God’s Word) as well as the literal season of Lent in the liturgical cycle; there are things happening to Christians everywhere, in the natural world as well as the political one which fulfill Biblical prophecy. In fact, as I write this on March 8th (the First Friday in Lent), we see the danger of the Abomination of Desolation being set up to be introduced into the Temple of God. More on that later.

This is how Our Lord is opening our eyes even further at our prayer group, through a sequence of readings on a particular day…

Firstly, last week’s reading was about John the Baptist. We used a different bible and a different person opened it- but again, this week, it was about John the Baptist; at the beginning of his ministry in the Gospel of Mark- just before the official start of Jesus’ public ministry.

The themes were fasting, turning from sin, evangelization… “Lent!” my mum observed, whose season started for us the day before (on Ash Wednesday).  In actual fact, we finished the reading in Mark with Jesus in the desert for 40 days rejecting temptation- which is the exact reason- a direct connection to why we practice self-denial, turning from sin and renewal of our baptismal promises in Lent- which lasts 40 days. Because of this desert experience of Jesus and the exhortations of St. John. Furthermore, what does John the Baptist do, except prepare a way for The Lord?

Is this not what he exhorts us to do also, in relation to Christ’s Second Coming? In preparation for the Great Tribulation? Would not God warn us again? Through His prophets or through one specific prophet; especially if we were entering the times immediately preceding His Second Coming? Like a modern day John the Baptist? This is exactly what He has done through the Book of Truth – prophesied in Daniel to be revealed in these times.

man-shall-not-live-by-bread-alone-but-by-every-word-that-proceeds-from-the-mouth-of-god-jesus-christ

The second and third readings at our Thursday prayer groups are always from this Book of Truth, which was given through one of God’s prophets: specifically to prepare His people (all of you) for His Second Coming and to lead us through the chastisements and Tribulation. God said He would send this (in Daniel); and that the Lamb of God (Jesus) would open the Seal and that He is the only One who can reveal the contents. So those of you who believe in the Second Coming, should have been expecting these prophecies to be revealed in these times.

Our second reading from the Book of Truth was about looking forward with hope – to a glorious future after all the terrible chastisements and the reign of the AC. It is like the hope of the Resurrection celebrated at Easter, at the end of Lent.  The second resurrection is that of the dead, and the fulfillment of God’s Promise on earth (as it is in heaven.) There is no Easter without the Passion and the Cross, as we are undergoing now. I made that connection because mum drew the parallel to Lent.

It seemed like a sequence of messages: two about John leading us to Jesus, and then pointing to the Resurrection.

 

The last reading was a prophecy which again, now, we see being fulfilled. The news that came in today was ringing of long prophesied future changes in the Mass. The Trojan – horse mechanism is that of the Youth Synod and the Plenary Council (in Australia), even Bishop Conferences in other countries. More about that in the next article – so the alarm can be sounded!

A final note:

If you have not read the Book of Truth, how do you expect to be prepared for Christ’s Second Coming? Do not reject God’s word through His prophets.

He has always sent them for a reason. 

 

Another Perspective: The Great Cover Up

My reflections on the Prayer Group’s Bible Reading:

The theme of our Bible reading draws attention to a cover up of Truth that had enormous consequences.

Matthew 28: 11 -20 The Report of the Guard

The full bible reading, in context, can be found here:
The bible reading’s theme was clearly cover up.
Non-believers will do this in our age, especially in regards to sex abuse.
While being seen to do the right thing and holding up appearances; just like the Pharisees did, who lied and did not allow the Jews to hear the Truth about Jesus’ Resurrection from the lips of their leaders, and so prevented their Salvation, so do the Pharisees of our age. A cover up with enormous consequences.
The disciples, however, were led by ‘the only One with all power in heaven and on earth’ so their message, though harder to receive, and though denied by rightful authority, spread all over the earth.
Meanwhile, the Catholic Church in the Sex Abuse Summit is admonished by its people and the Holy Ghost, to tell the Truth and not participate in another grand cover-up which effectively chooses evil over good. They are charged to be bold, courageous and trust in The Lord. These people, like the then little-known disciples, are making the truth known, despite denials and lies. We must do the same.

Now is not the time is to be silent.

 

In case you missed it: Samson And Delilah! (Relevance for our times)

Commentary on the Bible reading from last prayer group:

We always think about what is God trying to say to us today, through His Word, in the circumstances of our lives. Sometimes we see connections more easily than at other times..

In the story we interpreted Samson  as symbolizing God’s chosen race and the enemy/temptress as Delilah.  (In fact, Samson had been dedicated to God at birth).

Samson felt very close to Delilah and didn’t seem to take all her plottings very seriously. He was deceived by lust whereas she, by power and money. We perceived that she pestered and plotted against Samson continually until Samson was tired and weary and, in a moment of weakness, told the enemy what they wanted to know.

He let down his guard; he told them all that was in his heart! We Christians – as part of the Remnant of God’s people – will also be pestered and provoked, perhaps by people close to us, whom we don’t expect.

Samson was persecuted (eyes gouged out) and imprisoned. But his hair ( the source of his strength) started to regrow. The Christian remnant today will also be similarly pestered and persecuted, and even imprisoned; when we let our guard down. But our strength (Faith in the Lord) will be restored – so that we can fight another day!

When we fall, or falter or fail, we must be penitent and call on God. God answered Samson’s prayers and his strength returned. What happened next to the enemy is quite spectacular! Read the whole story here:

http://www.usccb.org/bible/judges/16

Remember that the enemy will never defeat God’s people.

With God at our side, who can defeat us?

 

 

 

Reclaim New Year’s Day (follow up). My Word will spread in Australia and New Zealand

Message from Jesus given on February 10, 2013 @ 2:18am:

My Word will spread in Australia and New Zealand

My beloved disciples, how you bring tears of relief to My Sacred Eyes.

Your beautiful Nations, full of rich abundant natural resources, are empty of soul.  The Nations of Australia and New Zealand are lush, on the one hand, because of the Gift My Father has bequeathed you, and on the other, they are barren.

I call on your Nations, now, to help Me to ignite your faith and spread My Holy Word, so that it will nurture the souls of all God’s children in your countries.

My Word will be spread in Australia, through this, My last Mission to save souls on earth.You, My daughter, will be given the Gift of the Holy Spirit in order to bring Me the souls I crave for. You, My followers, have a heavy load to bear, because the Word of God, is unknown to millions, among your nation. Very few churches, within the Christian community, are used in the way they should be. They are empty shells and I Am displeased at the weak faith, which exists amongst you. You have much to learn and much to gain, when you follow Me – by your own free will – on the Path of Truth.

My plan to prepare your souls and to request your help to save those souls, who do not believe in God, is great. My Mission is to call out to atheists and cover them with My Holy Spirit, so that My Voice is heard, quickly.

Here is a special Crusade Prayer, for the Salvation of Australia and New Zealand.

Crusade Prayer (99) For the Salvation of Australia and New Zealand

O God, the Almighty Father, in the Name of Your beloved Son, Jesus Christ, have Mercy on all of your children in Australia and New Zealand.

Forgive us our rejection of Your Holy Word.

Forgive us the sin of indifference.

Rid us of our pagan culture and cover us with the Graces we need to inspire hope, faith, and charity among our brothers and sisters.

We beg You for the Gift of Discernment and ask that You grant all of us the Blessings we need to ensure that only the Truth of Your Holy Word can be heard and that all souls are granted the keys to eternal life.

Amen.

Very soon, My Holy Spirit will devour your souls and you will march forth with a calm confidence, as you declare the Truth to all of those you come into contact with.

 

Be thankful for this blessing, which I now cover your Nations with.

I love you and I trust you will respond to My Call.

Your Jesus.

Heal Our Nations

 

Reclaim New Year’s Day! A call to pray for the salvation of souls and for your country

A call to all people to reclaim this day by remembering to Whom it truly belongs.
What will you be doing on New Year’s Eve? How do you celebrate, or what do you do, on the first day of the year?
On the 1st January, Catholics celebrate the Feast of Mary, Mother of God.  In this, we recognise that God became flesh within the womb of a woman; one who would be forever blessed and whose name was Mary. Honouring the Mother of God, pleases the Holy Trinity, Who could not have loved her- (God’s own beloved, created) more.
Mary Mother of God
It is Mary, in her role, who shows us that Christ is truly God and truly man; One with us and yet Divine. Most importantly on this day, I take time out to pray Holy Mass and spend time with God.

This is because all the celebrations of New Year’s Eve: the resolutions, the fireworks, the happiness & prosperity wishes, are meaningless; if not anchored in and for Christ. It is an empty pagan celebration and yet, New Year’s Day truly belongs to Christ. Why?
Because all days, all time, all future and even the past, belongs to Him! Not just New Year’s Day, but every day. We need to thank Him for this! And we need to participate in the great work of Salvation to which He has commissioned us! We need to pray to God for our country and for our fellow man with fervent hearts; full of love and compassion, full of faith and hope, in union with the Holy Spirit, Who comes to a truly humble and God-centred heart.
In the Book of Truth, Jesus asks us to pray daily, and fervently, like this for the Salvation of Souls. He invites us to participate in the Mission of Salvation, for which He, Himself, has sent out the call to all mankind- so that all nations, all faiths, all creeds, all nationalities will hear His Call and respond with a resounding “Yes, Lord!”
pray at sunrise
In the Book of Truth, He also tells us that not everyone will be a Crusade Prayer Warrior but that there are many others in His remnant army who are equally important, who do His Work and who belong to Him. We must join with them in prayer also to become His formidable spiritual army!
Therefore, I am adding this call to prayer for the Salvation of souls and for the nations of the world, until all are under His Feet. When I read of the Sunrise Prayer Relay on New Year’s Day, I knew that the remnant army was swelling up to do God’s Will in every He must reigncorner of the earth. I knew that what God had urgently called us to do, He was calling others to do, in their hearts too!
Read a little more about how another soul felt the call to prayer and to respond to God’s invitation, who then began to co-ordinate the prayer relay. The link is at the bottom of this post.
The Lord asks this of you, too! It doesn’t matter who you are or whether you feel worthy or able. It doesn’t matter if you can’t get up at sunrise; your own prayer in your own way, does matter!
Rise up and start the year with Christ. Do not hesitate to respond. New Year’s Day approaches and the call to prayer around the globe awaits for you to be part of it, too. Consecrate all things to Christ. Pray for the souls of every man, woman and child alive on the earth today.

7 year old evangelizing

AM+DG

Saturday 8th December, 2018

My seven year old son told me, over a leisurely lunch later that day (SaturdayBoys basketball),  told me what had transpired at morning at Basketball.
He had been learning junior basketball skills at a kids’ session for an hour that morning with some other young girls and boys, aged between 5 and 8 years old.
He was wearing his scapular under his training shirt. This is worn over the shoulders under a shirt.brown scapular
Two other boys noticed it.
One of them pointed it out and asked:
“What’s that?”
“It’s my scapular,” he answered.
 The other boy laughed at him…
Without blinking an eyelid, my son pointedly and matter of factly said in reply :
 “Don’t you know who made you?”
Then the boy just walked away.
What a clever response!  I think his angel was in on that one!!

Hiding in Plain Sight: the boasts of Satan destroying Christ’s Church

There seems to be a theme emerging in some pieces of art which are approved by Church leaders, commissioned by them and/or on church property.

Last year’s nativity scene (2017) featured part of a church with broken, crumbling, destroyed walls and a mostly missing, broken cupola. It also featured a cracked painted portrait of the Blessed Virgin Mary on the crumbling side wall.

presepe-vaticano-panoramica

 

Secondly,  there is the latest light show seen throughout Rome on the facade of  Santa Maria Minerva, in October 2018 . It clearly features destructions and distortions which are quite disturbing!

Watch the video below

Lastly, listen to the speeches or words of some of the Vatican approved ‘on trend’ bishops: Bishop Long has said more than once that it is time for the old church to be replaced- by a new model.

Here is an extract from a recent  address given by the Bishop of Parramatta, Most Rev Vincent Long Van Nguyen OFM Conv, to the National Council of Priests, Canberra, Australia, on 11 September 2018, and to the National Assembly of Diocesan Priests, Christchurch, New Zealand, 13 September 2018:

BREAKING OPEN THE PRIESTHOOD:

The separated, exalted and elitist priesthood, which is a byproduct of the ecclesiology that emphasises the perfection of the Church must be consigned to the past. This kind of priesthood has been mystified by a notion that a priest has exclusive and privileged access to the divine.

This religious elevation is suspect and unreal to say the least in the light of the clerical sexual abuse crisis. In fact, such an image of a priest has become discredited and shattered. There is no going back to the self-enclosed, elevated and exalted clerical world. Your magnificent Cathedral of Christchurch, which was destroyed by the recent earthquake may or may not be rebuilt because of the extent of the damage. We can be certain that the pieces of the old exalted and elitist priesthood cannot be put back together.

The myth of the mysterious, heroic, uncontaminated, unblemished “men in black” has imploded.

Instead of doctoring the image and reviving the mythology and mystique of the priesthood of yesterday, we can accept that what has been destroyed is irretrievable. Perhaps the end of the old world could lead to a new era and the current crisis offers the priesthood a chance to free itself from the manacle of clericalism.

The priest is not a lone and exalted figure, exclusively chosen and gifted with something which most people do not have. Rather, the priest is the presence in whom the implicit priesthood of the baptised is called to become explicit and active. In this way, we learn to discover a deeper and more holistic identity as members of the People of God and as presbyters in the sense of going in front leading people but not hermetically sealed from them.

Also recently he advocated for women priests and used words in his speech which supported the pouring of new wine into old skins, even while knowing that Jesus warns against this in the Gospels and that it results in destruction… which Long sees as a good thing. A summary of his address with some of his key statements and an analysis can be found here:

https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/australian-bishop-female-priests-would-be-like-new-wine-in-old-wine

Friends of PF have described him as desiring complete and total change in the Church and as having a radical agenda which he will implement with or without the help of Synods (because after all he is also known as the ‘Dictator Pope’ by some).

George Neumayr writes in his book, ‘The Political Pope’, (according to an interview by Maike Hickson) that Pope Francis is sympathetic and supportive of the “radical political agenda of the global left” and is an “ecclesiastical equivalent of Barack Obama”. Source below:

https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/a-communist-pope-an-interview-with-author-george-neumayr

Just search ‘radical agenda Pope Francis’ and see all the information that comes up. How will he destroy the church with his radical agenda? The answer is in the intentions and actions of the Freemasons in the Catholic Church which we can see playing out before our eyes. Here is an extract from their plan:

“Our ultimate end is that of Voltaire and the French Revolution-the final destruction of Catholicism, and even in the Christian idea… The task that we are to undertake…may take years, perhaps a century… We do not intend to win the Popes to our cause,… our principles, propagators of our ideas… Now then, to assure ourselves a Pope of the required dimensions, it is a question first of shaping for this Pope a generation worthy of the reign we are dreaming of…”In a hundred years time . . . bishops and priests will think they are marching behind the banner of the keys of Peter when in fact they will be following our flag . . . The reforms will have to be brought about in the name of obedience.” (The Permanent Instruction of the Alta Vendita, the Masonic plan to infiltrate the Catholic Church)

Source: https://stevensperay.wordpress.com/freemasons-and-communists-plan/

One of the more specific ways in which Francis seeks to achieve this is through synodality as explained here:

https://orthosphere.wordpress.com/2013/12/04/pope-francis-and-synodality/

There have been many strange, anti-Christian and foreign, pagan, sometimes what appears to be demonic imagery used in surprising places in connection with the Church of Rome. The first such image “Fiat Lux: Illuminating our Common Home” was a result of the encyclical “Laudato Si”  and was projected onto the Vatican on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception: (2015)

“On December 8, a coalition convened by the World Bank Group’s Connect4Climate initiative presented a gift of contemporary public art entitled “Fiat Lux: Illuminating our Common Home” to Pope Francis on the opening day of the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy,…”

So when you see imagery or videos or artworks featuring destruction of the Church or sentiments or ideals or imagery/symbols connected to the Church or you see anti-Christian ideals and imagery, realise that they are bolding boasting of their new agenda and preparing you for their One World Church. They barely even hide it anymore!

Remember Satan’s boast to Pope Leo XIII via a mystical vision?

“I can destroy your Church.” growled the guttural voice, the voice of Satan in his pride, boasting to Our Lord.

Read the detail of this vision of Pope Leo XIII because it is clear in the longer and original form of the prayer that he composed, the intricate details of what he saw regarding the Church of the future.

That time is now.
