Evening Reflections on Persecution: 23rd May

AM+DG

(Email from RemnantchildofMary on Thurs. 23rd May to RemnantSurvivor):

“… you know how we were talking about persecution yesterday? Well, that was tonight’s reading for me/us.” (See picture of reading attached)

 

 

 

 

Often at night, I open on a reading in The Book of Truth or in my Bible for prayer and reflection before I go to sleep.  The relevance was pointed.

Mum and I had just been discussing how everyone had been suffering persecution of some form lately. Some  of it is simply completely unfair criticism, out of the blue and involves unusual aggression while we go about our daily duties striving to do good.  These unprovoked attacks tend to blindside us and hurt and tear at the heart. I remember thinking that it was like the crown of thorns pressing against the heart, bruising but not quite piercing it- as Mary must have suffered interiorly on many an occasion.

Immaculate Heart

While the latest attack had not been in regards to The Mission, several previous attacks have been; many of them aimed at my mum, most likely because she holds a “Jesus to Mankind prayer group” dedicated to this Mission.

Feeling this pain in my heart, last Saturday, I prayed sincerely for my persecutor at morning Mass. When we exchanged the sign of Peace, I mentally asked for Christ’s Peace to be sent to the person and at that same moment, I felt it come and rest on me. That was the Holy Spirit I think. I knew I could handle another attack more patiently then and forgiving -which is why I felt much better and ok about returning into the situation on Monday.

It was this line from the message that particularly resonated with me, therefore:

“Every time this happens, know that I will engulf you with My Protection and you will be aware of My Presence within you, for it is not you they fight, it is I.”

Lastly, I think I had been warned about attacks in a dream that I had a couple nights beforehand. In the dream, I was constantly blocking Satan’s attacks, which kept coming, and that seems to be confirmed in this message that I randomly opened on, too. In the dream, the action of the devil just kept repeating over and over, same attack,  but aimed at endangering different people I loved and I just kept praying the Seal- which was effectiveSatan couldn’t overpower me because of God; but still, it was pretty annoying the way he wouldn’t let up!! 

We were safe but he caused one trouble after another!

In the end, the issue that I had prayed for, seemed to miraculously resolve itself on Wednesday ( a week later) when the person decided to talk to me. This itself seems to be connected to divine intervention because an earlier Novena to St Rita for this person (who is good at intervening in impossible feuds) had been efficacious and the day it was resolved happened to be the Feast Day of St. Rita, which I realised afterwards.

If you want to read the full message about persecution, it can be found here:

Satan cannot defeat us when any attacks are offered up to Him with love and humility (without resentfulness) on behalf of souls- especially those causing us pain. We need to repay evil or hurt with Love. Love your enemies. Do good to those who hate you. Satan stands to lose more that way as our actions save souls and console Our Lord as nothing else can. It also returns peace to us.

Comment by RemnantSurvivor:

I think many of us (Crusaders) will have experienced attacks/persecution – sometimes for no apparent reason. These attacks come in many forms, our work, our children and families, personal relationships, etc. It will keep happening. We just have to be strong, persevere in prayer and ignore the evil one, who won’t give up. Remember that Jesus is always with us, at our side.

Crusaders are an Army!!!

AM+DG

Crusaders are an ARMY!

  1. An army has a leader – a General .
  2. An army has a mission to defeat the enemy that threatens them.
  3. An army has weapons – that are approved of, and supplied by the Army Leader/General. The weapons chosen are the best weapons available that are needed to defeat the enemy.
  4. An army has a handbook, with its ideals, procedures and instructions and logo and rules. This must be followed.
  5. Soldiers must be obedient to their leader and their mission.
  6. An army has a hierarchy. There are soldiers, sergeants, lieutenants
  7. An army has a uniform
  8. The soldiers are as one in their mission, in their battle formation, in their allegiance to their leader and their country, and in obedience. This is the key to victory..
  1. Crusade Prayer Groups are part of an army – the Remnant Army.

The crusaders are the soldiers.

Our Leader is Jesus Himself – Who gave us the mission and Who gave us instructions and a battle plan.

Thoughts: Not following the General/Commander’s orders and not following the battle plan would be disastrous in a war. Soldiers would not dream of it.

 

  1. The Mission is the ‘Salvation of Souls’.

The enemy is not flesh and blood.

In order to win the battle, we must be as one.

 

  1. The weapons we are given are the Crusade Prayers, the Holy Rosary, and the Divine Mercy Chaplet.

These prayers were written in Heaven and promise extraordinary Graces.”  (11 Nov. 2012)

I will provide you, My army, with Prayers that will need to be recited to save souls.” (23 Oct. 2011)

“My followers are requested to recite these Prayers, which I will give you every day to save souls.” (17 Nov. 2011)

“My dear children, it is important that all of you recite the Crusade Prayers and my most Holy Rosary as part of your daily prayers” ((10 Feb. 2015))

“The power of prayer and, especially, the recital of the Holy Rosary, which renders the beast impotent, cannot be underestimated. To save more souls you must also recite the Divine Mercy Chaplet.   (7 March, 2013)

 

Power of Crusade Prayers:

Just one Crusade Prayer, said from the heart, is enough for Me to destroy the power of arrogant political leaders, who do not have a conscience” (29 Aug. 2013).

The Rosary is a most powerful weapon, and Jesus told us that the Crusade prayers are 30 times more powerful than other prayers.

Jesus told us that if people can stay after the prayers are said, that the remainder of the Mysteries of the Rosary should be said.Those who can remain afterwards may say the remaining Mysteries of the Rosary (Red Crusade Prayer Book p. 12)

Thoughts: In an army, only weapons that are approved by the General may be used. It is obvious that if the weapons were switched, or supplied with bullets that are inferior – that this would endanger the mission. This could happen by a traitor, an intruder or by someone who has no authority. It could mean the loss of the war. So let’s only use the prayers provided by Jesus – after all they are 30 times more powerful!! Why would you say other prayers??

 

  1. The handbook for the Remnant Army is the Book of Truth, the Crusade Prayer Book and the Bible.

Book of Truth:

 “Only these messages can reveal the secrets of times to come and offer the blessings needed by all of God’s children up to the last day..(18 June, 2012)

This may be a time of confusion, division, sadness and a longing for those who represent Me on this earth to proclaim the Truth. But know this. I Am the Truth. The Truth never dies. My Kingdom is eternal and you, My beloved children, belong to Me. Come. Stay close to Me. I will lead you to your rightful inheritance. Trust in Me. Listen to Me through these Messages – the Book of Truth. “ (6 May, 2015)

“Be wary of anyone who comes forward and who says they have been sent by Me, to help spread My Word….. But out they will come, these false prophets, in their droves, each one trying to outdo the other. They will then try to use this Mission to garner support, so that they can spread untruths.” (Nov. 23, 2014) 

“My word is the end.  It is final.  There can be no other word My Voice speaks to the world through these Messages“ (May 13, 2013)

On False Prophets, Jesus said:(October 26, 2013):

“What must I do to make you listen? What must I do to stop your wandering and seeking out other forms of titillation? Why will you not trust in Me? You waste so much precious time seeking out fortune telling, which flows like venom out of the mouths of so-called mystics and sensation seekers, that you insult Me by turning away from Me. I Am here. These are My Words. What else do you seek, for you will only find the Truth from My Mouth?…

When I speak, I desire that you listen. I cannot force you. You may look everywhere and try to find My Messages, given to prepare the world for My Second Coming at this time, and you won’t find them. My public Messages to prepare you for this, the final stage before My Covenant is fulfilled, can only be found in the Book of Truth.”

My dearly beloved daughter it must be known that those who profess to come in My Name, as prophets, but who do not speak in the tongues from Heaven, are increasing in numbers. So many of these souls are being infected by fallen angels and speak in carefully constructed, but loving tones, reminiscent of what you would expect to be My Sacred Voice. Oh how My poor devoted followers are being deceived now and how confused they will be. Who to trust? Who to follow? Who to believe? Did I not say that many will come in My Name but few with speak with My Voice? There are fewer than twenty who have permission to impart to the world the Word of God and this    … (28 June 2012)

… Only My Voice brings you the news as to what it is My Father wishes His children to know. …You will not hear the Truth anywhere else, in relation to My Second Coming, for not one amongst you has been given the Authority to speak to the whole world on behalf of the One Who created you.

As the true end time prophet reveals to you the Truth, so too will the counterfeit raise his voice, like a lamb who will speak as if it he speaks the True Word of God. Then as the king of the Earth – the evil one – fights against Heaven’s intervention, hundreds of false prophets will rise among you and they will never tell you the Truth. Their visions and their words, which spring from their own imaginations – and in many cases, from the spirit of evil – will reveal to you the good things you want to hear. …The Truth prepares you to deal with the reality of difficult times, foretold in My Father’s Book. It is given to you to make you strong. But the false prophets, who roam among you, will confuse you and tell you that all things are good – when they are bad, and holy – when they are not. They will shield the wolves who want to devour the souls of God’s children. Their words of love and their quotes from Holy Scripture serve only to deceive you. … Woe to all of you imposters,…. (Dec. 4, 2013) 

Thoughts: Be satisfied with God’s Words in the Book of Truth. Don’t be even tempted to look at the words of other mystics. We could be easily fooled. Don’t risk it.  Remember, Jesus told us that there were less than 20 authentic visionaries in the world today. The Book of Truth is all we need.!!!

The Crusade Prayer Book:

“Prayer Books to be used” (17 January, 2013)

Thoughts: One might wonder what this means. Prayer Books only have Crusade Prayers in them – no other prayers. This instruction links up with the one above – that only messages from the Book of Truth be used. (see point above)

If this is the case why would anyone include weapons (prayers) that are not approved or recommended by the Army Commander?

 

The Holy Bible:

I urge My followers to remind people of the importance of reading the Holy Bible, the Word set out, according to the Will of My Father.” .(23 January, 2013)

Today, My Word is spoken, yet again, to instil in the minds of people, today, the importance of My Teachings. Failure to accept the Word of God results in the death of the soul. (23 Jan 2013)

 

  1. As Crusaders – part of the Remnant Army – we must be obedient to our Leader – Jesus Himself.

You, My disciples, are under My direction. . (11 Nov 2012)

“It is because you are protected by My Father, and guided by Me directly, that you will succeed” (11 Nov.2012).

“I will bless each Prayer Group, when they agree to My Direction.” (17 January 2013)

“I thank those who have followed My instructions and show obedience.” (11 Nov 2012)

 

  1. The Remnant Army also has a hierarchy:

Jesus; Maria; a group of people sent to her by Jesus to be the co-ordinators in each region of the world. Maria is instructed by Jesus.

“You must work closely, in love and harmony, and keep in touch with My daughter, Maria. I have instructed her to assist, where possible, in guiding you. I have sent her a group of people who will co-ordinate these groups in different regions in the world. You must each focus on your own region and link with each other.  Maria will be instructed, by Me, as to how I need them to be managed and the format I desire.”

Thought:  Don’t try to do your own thing. Obey Jesus and the people He has chosen. That would be insubordination and disobedience to Jesus’ authority.

7. An army has a uniform.

The uniform shows where your allegiance lies. It identifies you. Everyone, when they see a soldier in uniform, know what to expect. The uniform will also have a logo.

Crusaders have a uniform – the Seal of the living God Scapular, the Medal of Salvation. Our logo is the Seal of the Living God.

 

8. Crusaders must be one

Jesus told us that there would be problems in our prayer groups:

“…To My followers, you must prepare now for the terrible trials, which you will have to face because of your response to My call. Everything will be done to cause disruption to your Prayer Groups…

Do not allow differences of opinion to halt this Work. This is a time when Satan will try to drive a wedge between you all” (January 17, 2013)

Thoughts: Let’s be prepared. Don’t allow disruption. Obey Jesus. If people leave the prayer group because they don’t like the rules, let them go. This might not be the right type of prayer group for them.

In Conclusion:

Surely we do not want to be the soldiers that destroy or undermine the mission! The Crusader must be true to the Mission that Jesus gave us and be true and obedient to Jesus Himself. We must obey Him in every detail.

“My children, you must seek out the comfort of each other, as you gather, at every corner of the earth, to form My Son’s Remnant Army. … You must remain united, my little children, because my Son needs your love and commitment, so that He can save humanity. You will, however, become a target for the evil one who will raise every demon, under his wing, to infiltrate you and cause division. Recognise these attempts, for what they are and trust, completely, in my Son. Call on me, your beloved Mother, to keep your Crusade Prayer Groups united.” (Feb. 5, 2013)

 “To My followers, you must prepare now for the terrible trials, which you will have to face because of your response to My call. Everything will be done to cause disruption to your Prayer Groups. … I urge you to work together in peace and harmony. Do not allow differences of opinion to halt this Work. This is a time when Satan will try to drive a wedge between you all, so that the Crusade Prayers are not spread globally, as dictated by Me.” (January 17, 2013)

Prepare for this global Mission, like no other. It is the Final Mission to save souls and every step of the way is dictated by Me, Jesus Christ.” (January 17, 2013)

So let’s all unite as one formidable army – making sure our prayer groups are obedient to Jesus’ instructions. 

 

Crusade Prayer P 121 :

 Allegiance to the Army of Jesus Christ

Sept.15, 2013″

“This Army has been given great Graces by Me and by the Power of the Holy Spirit they will keep the Flame of Christianity burning  and they will carry the Torch of Truth until the Final Day.”

We stand united to Your Sacred Heart, dear Jesus. We speak with authority the True Word of God. We will walk to the ends of the Earth to spread the Truth. We will never accept any new false doctrine in Your Name, other than that You taught us Yourself. We remain true, loyal and steadfast in our faith. We will treat those who betray You with love and compassion, in the hope that they will come back to You. We will be firm, but patient, with those who persecute us in Your Name. We will walk victorious all the way to Your New Paradise. We promise, that through our pain and suffering, we will bring You all those lost souls who are starved of Your Love. Please accept our prayers for all sinners in the world, so that we can become one family, united in love for You, in the New Era of Peace. Amen.

Crusade Prayer  P 143 :

To protect the Mission of Salvation   

(March 25, 2014)

O Mother of Salvation, protect this Mission, a Gift from God, to bring Eternal Life to all of His children everywhere. Please intervene, on our behalf, through your beloved Son, Jesus Christ, to give us the courage to carry out our duties to serve God at all times and especially when we suffer because of this. Help this Mission to convert billions of souls, in accordance with the Divine Will of God and to turn those hearts of stone into loving servants of your Son. Give all of us who serve Jesus in this Mission the strength to overcome the hatred and the persecution of the Cross and to welcome the suffering that comes with it, with a generosity of heart and with full acceptance of what may come ahead. Amen.

Crusade Prayer  155 :

For Protection of the Mission of Salvation

(June 8, 2014)

 “You must present your  prayers each day to my Son, for the protection of this Mission against the hatred of Satan. When you do this, every Blessing will be given to you”.

O dearest Mother of Salvation, hear our call for the protection of the Mission of Salvation and for the protection of God‘s children. We pray for those who defy the Will of God in this great moment in history. We ask that you protect all those who respond to your call and the Word of God, to save everyone from the enemies of God. Please help release those souls, who fall prey to the deceit of the devil and open their eyes to the Truth. O Mother of Salvation, help us poor sinners to be made worthy, to receive the Grace of perseverance at our time of suffering in the Name of your beloved Son, Jesus Christ.  Protect this Mission from harm.  Protect your children from persecution. Cover all of us with your Most Holy Mantle and favour us with the Gift of retaining our faith, every time we are challenged for speaking the Truth, for conveying the Holy Word of God, for the rest of our days now and forever. Amen.
