Prayer Theme: Core  prayers plus Protection (Groups A and C)

Bible Reading: 1 Samuel 1

Book of Truth: 3 Jan. 2013

Book of Truth: 2 April. 2012

Comment: In the Bible Reading, Hannah was childless- she suffered and was also persecuted. However, she had great Faith. She went to the temple and “poured out her heart” to the Lord, and “give him to the Lord”. Eli, the priest, prayed that the Lord grant her request.  She went home and was no longer downhearted. (She had faith that her request would be heard.) She had a child, after he was weaned took him to the Temple and presented him to the priest, Eli. She told him that she would dedicate him to the Lord for as long as he lives. Finally, “they worshipped there before the Lord.”

This reading teaches us that God sees our suffering and also our faithfulness and hears our prayer. The priest, Eli, also played a part. We receive many Graces through the priests, which are our spiritual fathers, who pray for their flock and offer up for the Everlasting Sacrifice to God for us. We must always offer thanksgiving for special graces granted to us and worship  and adore our God. The reading teaches us of the value of our priests sent to us by God, and of the value of the Sacrifice they offer for our salvation. The other 2 readings also echo the message that we must call on God.

Bible Reading

1 Samuel 1

There was a certain man from Ramathaim, a Zuphite from the hill country of Ephraim. His name was Elkanah, the son of Jeroham, son of Elihu, son of Tohu, son of Zuph, an Ephraimite. He had two wives, one named Hannah, the other Peninnah; Peninnah had children, but Hannah had no children. 3 Each year this man went up from his city to worship and offer sacrifice to the LORD of hosts at Shiloh, where the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were ministering as priests of the LORD.
4 When the day came for Elkanah to offer sacrifice, he used to give portions to his wife Peninnah and to all her sons and daughters, 5 but he would give a double portion to Hannah because he loved her, though the LORD had closed her womb. 5 Her rival, to upset her, would torment her constantly, since the LORD had closed her womb. 7 Year after year, when she went up to the house of the LORD, Peninnah would provoke her, and Hannah would weep and refuse to eat. 8 Elkanah, her husband, would say to her: “Hannah, why are you weeping? Why are you not eating? Why are you so miserable? Am I not better for you than ten sons?”

Hannah’s Prayer. 9 Hannah rose after one such meal at Shiloh, and presented herself before the LORD; at the time Eli the priest was sitting on a chair near the doorpost of the LORD’s temple. 10 In her bitterness she prayed to the LORD, weeping freely, 11 and made this vow: “O LORD of hosts, if you look with pity on the hardship of your servant, if you remember me and do not forget me, if you give your handmaid a male child, I will give him to the LORD all the days of his life. No razor shall ever touch his head.” 12 As she continued praying before the LORD, Eli watched her mouth, 13 for Hannah was praying silently; though her lips were moving, her voice could not be heard. Eli, thinking she was drunk, 14 said to her, “How long will you make a drunken spectacle of yourself? Sober up from your wine!” 15 “No, my lord!” Hannah answered. “I am an unhappy woman. I have had neither wine nor liquor; I was only pouring out my heart to the LORD. 16 Do not think your servant a worthless woman; my prayer has been prompted by my deep sorrow and misery.” 17 Eli said, “Go in peace, and may the God of Israel grant you what you have requested.” 18 She replied, “Let your servant find favor in your eyes,” and left. She went to her quarters, ate and drank with her husband, and no longer appeared downhearted. 19 Early the next morning they worshiped before the LORD, and then returned to their home in Ramah. When they returned Elkanah had intercourse with his wife Hannah, and the LORD remembered her.

Hannah Bears a Son. 20 She conceived and, at the end of her pregnancy, bore a son whom she named Samuel. “Because I asked the LORD for him.” 21 The next time her husband Elkanah was going up with the rest of his household to offer the customary sacrifice to the LORD and to fulfill his vows, 22 Hannah did not go, explaining to her husband, “Once the child is weaned, I will take him to appear before the LORD and leave him there forever.” 2 Her husband Elkanah answered her: “Do what you think best; wait until you have weaned him. Only may the LORD fulfill his word!” And so she remained at home and nursed her son until she had weaned him.

Hannah Presents Samuel to the Lord. 24 Once he was weaned, she brought him up with her, along with a three-year-old bull, an ephah of flour, and a skin of wine, and presented him at the house of the LORD in Shiloh. 25 After they had slaughtered the bull, they brought the child to Eli. 26 Then Hannah spoke up: “Excuse me, my lord! As you live, my lord, I am the woman who stood here near you, praying to the LORD. 27 I prayed for this child, and the LORD granted my request. 28 Now I, in turn, give him to the LORD; as long as he lives, he shall be dedicated to the LORD. Then they worshiped there before the LORD.

Reading from the Book of Truth

I call out to all those who are unsure as to whether I Exist, or not

January 3, 2013 @ 9:10pm

My dearly beloved daughter, I call out to all those who are unsure as to whether I Exist, or not.

I realise how difficult it is for you to believe in a life, other than the one you live now. I know that you find it hard to accept in My Divine Presence. Yet, know that when you love someone, that the Presence of God, in your soul, allows for this Gift. Use this love to call on Me and I will speak to your heart.

This is an age where, very soon, you will know, instinctively, that many events in the world are being caused by the evil present in the hearts of men with cruelty in their souls.

This is the time when I will make My Voice heard amongst you. I speak through My prophets in order to enlighten you so that I can show you the Love that I have for you. Do not pull away from Me. There is a spark of recognition for Me within your soul. Now is the time for you to ponder on your future, for you must know this. Without Me; without My Love and My Mercy, you will never find peace.

I Am the Truth. I bring news, which may not sit comfortably with you, but I speak the Truth. The Truth is difficult, in the beginning, to accept because it reveals the bad as well as the good. People only want to see the pleasant side, but very often, the exterior of warm pleasantries simply cover up the Truth. Many cannot savour the Truth – the Existence of God, the Creator of all things – yet, they are prepared to accept falsities, which are presented to them.

These are just passing forms of titillation and are meaningless. They succeed in distracting you and give you a false sense of security. But they have no substance.

Remember, your time on earth is simply a form of exile, brought about by sin.

I came to salvage the human race from sin, when I came the first time. Sadly, I was not welcomed. I was murdered and died on the Cross before I could claim My Kingdom. Now I will come again, as foretold, to claim the Kingdom, promised to Me by My Beloved Father. This time, I will prepare all of you for this event, for I promise you now, the greatest gift of all.

You, are a child of God, whether or not you accept this fact. You are very much loved. I will enlighten you, if you come to Me and ask Me to help you. There is nothing to fear, because I am your beloved Jesus, and for you, I died a death of great suffering. Your own suffering, where you wander lost, in confusion, and where you find it impossible to find peace, is almost over.

Come, follow Me. I have great plans and My Divinity will be proven to all. Even those who continue to reject Me will be presented with the Truth, when My Glorious Second Coming is witnessed by over seven billion people.

No one will deny I Exist then. They will find it impossible, yet many will refuse to accept the New Kingdom, which I will unveil for all of God’s children.

Do not turn away, for I wish to save you and take you, and the whole of humanity, into the inheritance for which you were all born.

Your beloved Jesus

Let them pray to Me, for discernment

2 April 2012 @ 3:30pm

My dearest beloved daughter, you must rest now, for the attacks by those who cannot accept My True Word, continue.

You are not permitted to defend My Word, but now I Am instructing you not to engage with those who doubt My Word, for that is not your responsibility.

My daughter, no matter how tempting it is to prove the authenticity of My Most Holy Word for humanity in these the times, you must not do this.

I never responded to My executioners, during My Crucifixion. You must not try to respond to those who wish to persecute Me, through My Messages.

It is not you, my daughter, they are angry with; it is I.

I can only tell the world how to prepare for My Second Coming. I cannot force them.

Ignore such taunts. Many are from genuine souls, who feel the need to ask questions. But, you are not permitted to do so. Let them pray to Me for discernment. Only I have responsibility for their souls. Even when you offer suffering to save souls, it is still not your responsibility.

So go and tell those who are in doubt, like My apostle Thomas, it was I who faced him, after My Resurrection, when I stood before him. It was only when he touched My Wounds that he fully believed.

Sadly, many souls in the world are not afforded this luxury.

They must know time is short, in order to prepare their souls. It is their own free choice whether or not they respond to My Call.

Your Jesus
