Pope Benedict, St Bonaventure on “the Seal of the LIving God”.

AM+DG

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).

 Revelation7: 2-4

“…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: …”

Rev 14:1

“[1] 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:

Daniel 10:21
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!!!

Thoughts for the Fifth Day of Christmas: St John Henry Newman and the Lesson of Joy

AM+DG

(continued from yesterday’s post: Thoughts for the Fourth Day of Christmas)

The second lesson is that of joy, as Newman relates.

“Fear not,” said the Angel, “for behold I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.” And then, when he had finished his announcement, suddenly there was with the Angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will towards men.”

Such were the words which the blessed Spirits who minister to Christ and His Saints, spoke on that gracious night to the shepherds, to rouse them out of their cold and famished mood into great joy; to teach them that they were objects of God’s love as much as the greatest of men on earth; nay more so, for to them first He had imparted the news of what that night was happening. His Son was then born into the world. Such events are told to friends and intimates, to those whom we love, to those who will sympathize with us, not to strangers.

How could Almighty God be more gracious, and show His favor more impressively to the lowly and the friendless, than by hastening (if I may use the term) to confide the great, the joyful secret to the shepherds keeping watch over their sheep by night?

Christmas is a day of great joy, one in which the poor and lowly of the world are lifted up and become heirs of the Kingdom of Heaven. No matter our social status in the world, God loves us and calls us back to himself.

This is the great joy of Christmas, which all the world can partake in.

Feast of the Guardian Angels – for our times

Feast of the Guardian Angels 2nd October, 2015

This morning at Mass, I thought that the Reading seemed to be especially for us in these end times. Our angels would lead us (just as they did Moses and the Israelites who were in the Desert on their way to the Promised Land.) If we listen to our angel, God will protect us against our enemies.

Epistle (Traditional Latin Mass)  Exodus 23: 20-23

 Behold I will send my angel, who shall go before thee,

and keep thee in thy journey,

and bring thee into the place that I have prepared.

Take notice of him, and hear his voice,

and do not think him one to be condemned:

for he will not forgive when thou hast sinned,

and my name is in him.

But if thou wilt hear his voice, and do all that I speak,

I will be an enemy to thy enemies, and will afflict them that afflict thee.

And my angel shall go before thee

A Tribute to Our Guardian Angels Part V: My Angel Speaks

guardian_angel
Once, when I was about 25, I got really ill. It was hard to understand what happened and why, but I believe that it may have been a spiritual attack.I had been spending a lot of time in prayer, Mass and Adoration- more than ever. I started and ran a lunchtime prayer group for schoolkids and led them in the Rosary.

Then around the time of the school holidays, I suddenly became excessively tired as if my body was made of lead. I could not go anywhere. In actual fact, this overwhelming fatigue only allowed me to be out of bed for about 3 hrs a day in total. 

I saw our doctor who ran tests but could find no physical reason. He asked me if I had recently undergone  a terrible stress such as a marriage break up, but that was not the case- there was nothing.I was perplexed, sad and frustrated. After nearly 6 weeks of this, I was beginning to despair of ever getting better. I was not able to attend weekday Mass anymore or do any chores. I was a burden to my husband and not much fun to my young daughter, either. Mostly I was worried because I thought that in this state I wouldn't be able to work and help support our family, especially by paying the mortgage. I wondered, with sadness, what would become of us!

I sat down and cried alone on my bed; God and I had a 'heart to heart' where I just poured out these fears and my sadness, asking Him interiorly what would become of me, and of course, to help me. Then at my right shoulder I heard a voice answer; loud, deep and clear- a man's voice, as if someone was standing right there! He said "You'll be alright" in a very matter of fact voice. It was authoritative more than comforting, but the shock of hearing "a voice" made me stop crying immediately!

It didn't sound like I thought Jesus would sound, so I thought it had to be my guardian angel. I believed him, because he was so authoritative sounding, even though I didn't understand 'how' I'd get better, when they didn't even know what was wrong with me! And no, I wasn't going crazy... I had never heard an 'exterior' voice before, or since! 

I have heard an inner voice before, for example telling me to pray for someone, or giving me enlightened responses in situations, but this was completely different! This was an actual voice. How do you know the difference you ask? You know; believe me! It didn't even 'sound like' my inner voice. 

I have pondered on it many times over the years and I can explain how I knew with such certainty,  that I had heard an actual voice. An inner voice is one that you hear inside (in your heart and mind) but you don't hear it in 'one ear'! Also I felt, as well as heard, the sound of that voice reverberate in my ear drum; I felt the physical vibration of its timbre. And I even heard it's direction- over my right shoulder, as if a man was standing right beside my bed. It made me jump!

You always think you'd love to hear Jesus speak, Mary or an angel but (at least in this case) when it happened, it was a shock! The good news is that I did miraculously get better, gradually but quickly, within a fortnight of returning to work, although they never did find out what had been wrong with me.

For all the prayers, guidance, comfort and protection I've always had from you -because of God's great love, thank you guardian angel!! I know I have vexed you greatly at times. Please forgive me and help me stay true to Jesus!

MDM Messages- Jesus to Mankind CP Meeting Thursday, 16th July, 2015.

The following words from God were opened upon by different volunteers and read aloud at the conclusion of our prayer group meeting:

Tobias 6

By the angel’s advice young Tobias taketh hold on a fish that assaulteth him. Reserveth the heart, the gall, and the liver for medicines. They lodge at the house of Raguel, whose daughter Sara, Tobias is to marry; she had before been married to seven husbands, who were all slain by a devil.

[1] And Tobias went forward, and the dog followed him, and he lodged the first night by the river of Tigris. [2] And he went out to wash his feet, and behold a monstrous fish came up to devour him. [3] And Tobias being afraid of him, cried out with a loud voice, saying: Sir, he cometh upon me. [4] And the angel said to him: Take him by the gill, and draw him to thee. And when he had done so, he drew him out upon the land, and he began to pant before his feet. [5] Then the angel said to him: Take out the entrails of the fish, and lay up his heart, and his gall, and his liver for thee: for these are necessary for useful medicines.

[6] And when he had done so, he roasted the flesh thereof, and they took it with them in the way: the rest they salted as much as might serve them, till they came to Rages the city of the Medes. [7] Then Tobias asked the angel, and said to him: I beseech thee, brother Azarias, tell me what remedies are these things good for, which thou hast bid me keep of the fish? [8] And the angel, answering, said to him: If thou put a little piece of its heart upon coals, the smoke thereof driveth away all kind of devils, either from man or from woman, so that they come no more to them. [9] And the gall is good for anointing the eyes, in which there is a white speck, and they shall be cured. [10] And Tobias said to him: Where wilt thou that we lodge?

[8] Its heart: The liver (ver. 19) God was pleased to give these things a virtue against those proud spirits, to make them, who affected to be like the Most High, subject to such mean corporeal creatures as instruments of his power.

[11] And the angel answering, said: Here is one whose name is Raguel, a near kinsman of thy tribe, and he hath a daughter named Sara, but he hath no son nor any other daughter beside her. [12] All his substance is due to thee, and thou must take her to wife. [13] Ask her therefore of her father, and he will give her thee to wife. [14] Then Tobias answered, and said: I hear that she hath been given to seven husbands, and they all died: moreover I have heard, that a devil killed them. [15] Now I am afraid, lest the same thing should happen to me also: and whereas I am the only child of my parents, I should bring down their old age with sorrow to hell.

[15] Hell: That is, to the place where the souls of the good were kept before the coming of Christ.

[16] Then the angel Raphael said to him: Hear me, and I will shew thee who they are, over whom the devil can prevail. [17] For they who in such manner receive matrimony, as to shut out God from themselves, and from their mind, and to give themselves to their lust, as the horse and mule, which have not understanding, over them the devil hath power. [18] But thou when thou shalt take her, go into the chamber, and for three days keep thyself continent from her, and give thyself to nothing else but to prayers with her. [19] And on that night lay the liver of the fish on the fire, and the devil shall be driven away. [20] But the second night thou shalt be admitted into the society of the holy Patriarchs.

[21] And the third night thou shalt obtain a blessing that sound children may be born of you. [22] And when the third night is past, thou shalt take the virgin with the fear of the Lord, moved rather for love of children than for lust, that in the seed of Abraham thou mayst obtain a blessing in children.

God the Father: I will wipe out their false churches, their wicked cults, their false idols, their cities and their nations

Sunday, 15 July 2012 @ 17:45
Message 488
(received during adoration of the Holy Eucharist)
My dearest daughter it is difficult for My children to remain free of sin because of the curse inflicted upon them by the hand of the serpent.
Never do I expect My children to be completely free of sin at all times for this is impossible.
It is important that anyone who knows the teachings of My Son’s Church on Earth to seek repentance for your sins as often as possible.
Through repentance it will be easier to remain in a state of grace and this will create a barrier to further temptation.
My children you are now about to witness great everlasting changes in the world.
They will happen after The Warning takes place.
While many will ignore these messages from Heaven, it is important for those who accept them as the word of God to prepare.
You are the link in my armour against the enemy and through your faith I will lift you up and protect you against the persecution.
It will be your love for My Son, Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the universe, that I will be able to salvage those children who cannot abide the light of God.
Your consecration of love, suffering and prayers will be their saving grace from the fires of Hell.
Be not afraid for yourselves but for those who not only cannot see, but who refuse to see, the times in which you are living today.
The preparations are complete and the time is ripe for the changes to commence for I will not allow the beast to steal souls.
This intervention, promised to mankind for so long will take place very soon and then the battle will begin to save My children.
Do not fear my hand for, when it falls, it will be used to punish those who are trying to destroy My children.
I will stop them from deceiving souls.
I will stop them from their murderous intent and I will wipe out their false Churches, their wicked cults, their false idols, their cities and their nations if they continue to reject the hand that feeds them.
They have been warned.
You, my beloved children will help My Son to save them.
Never fear because those with the seal of the living God are not only protected but are given the graces to defend the word of God so that as many souls as possible will be given the gift of life.
Your beloved Father
God the Most High

Heaven rejoices at your final surrender.
But now you will have to prepare yourself to help save millions of souls.
My daughter, the task I ask of you is enormous in human terms.
You, My daughter, will be the messenger to the world of the largest volume of my holy word, for the world to prepare for my second coming.
They, my precious children whom I love with a deep passion beyond your knowing, must be drawn back to my most Sacred Heart before it is too late.
You, My daughter, will be expected to deliver my word to mankind.
This is no easy task.
You will suffer because of it, but you must understand that this now is your duty to me.

You are living in the time when many of God’s children have become pagans

Friday, 22 February 2013 @ 23:00
Message 712
My dearly beloved daughter, you are living in the time when many of God’s children have become pagans.
Even those born as Jews and Christians have now resorted to different kinds of idolatry, as foretold.
How it offends me to witness the respect, which God’s children hold in their hearts for self-gratification and a belief in false Gods, which exist only in their minds.
The surges of new age spiritualism and a passion for all things, which relate to the calming of the mind, amount to one thing.
These people are in darkness because they refuse to acknowledge me, Jesus Christ.
By blocking out the light of God, deliberately, they leave themselves open to the darkness of the spirit of evil.
Satan and his demons prey on such souls and cause, within them, a terrible stark emptiness, which no matter what new age spiritual remedies they seek, they will never find comfort, for this is not the natural habitat into which they were born.
The paganism which has gripped humanity at this time is at its highest since before the time I, Jesus Christ, was born on Earth.
Although the world was given the truth of the existence of God, and even though I, through My Death on the cross, saved them from damnation, they still turn their backs.
Self-obsession, adulation and a love of worldly excesses, is the scourge of mankind and it comes from a desperate sense of unease, disquiet and barrenness.
Idolatry – a love of famous people, false Gods and the display of pagan objects – bring a cloud of darkness upon all those who are passionate about such pursuits.
Christians suffer ridicule by the hands of such people, but through their suffering and prayers, they can help to save their fellow human beings from the fires of Hell.
When you flirt with these false idols, you play with the demons from Hell, sent to drag you into the abyss for eternity.
Never believe that such pagan practices are harmless, because they are not.
When you spend your time and your mind in such distractions you shut yourself away from God and eternal life.
Wake up to the truth.
I am the truth.
There is no other way to eternal happiness, only through I, Jesus Christ, the Son of Man.
I come now to reveal the truth, so that I can save you again and bring you eternal life by helping you to salvage your souls.
Your Jesus
(* Editor’s note: Emphasis is mine as relates to the following: The reading above was a timely confirmation, as was the Chapter of Tobit. A young woman we know had recently been to see a ‘bible-quoting’ medium/physic who involved her in New Age practices. A few weeks later, she came down with a debilitating mental illness with schizophrenia-like symptoms.  I believed it was a spiritual manifestation. We are praying for her delivery, healing and for her whole family to come to know God .)
