Bible Reading

Isaiah 8: 11-23

Disciples of Isaiah.

11 For thus said the LORD—his hand strong upon me—warning me not to walk in the way of this people: 12 Do not call conspiracy what this people calls conspiracy, nor fear what they fear, nor feel dread.

13 But conspire with the LORD of hosts; he shall be your fear, he shall be your dread. 14 He shall be a snare, a stone for injury, A rock for stumbling To both the houses of Israel, A trap and a snare to those who dwell in Jerusalem;  15 And many among them shall stumble; fallen and broken; snared and captured.

16 Bind up my testimony, seal the instruction with my disciples. 17 I will trust in the LORD, who is hiding his face from the house of Jacob; yes, I will wait for him. 18 Here am I and the children whom the LORD has given me: we are signs and portents in Israel from the LORD of hosts, who dwells on Mount Zion.

19 And when they say to you, “Inquire of ghosts and soothsayers who chirp and mutter; should not a people inquire of their gods, consulting the dead on behalf of the living, 20 for instruction and testimony? Surely, those who speak like this are the ones for whom there is no dawn.

21 He will pass through it hard-pressed and hungry, and when hungry, shall become enraged, and curse king and gods. He will look upward, 22 and will gaze at the earth, But will see only distress and darkness, oppressive gloom, murky, without light.

The Promise of Salvation Under a New Davidic King.

 23 There is no gloom where there had been distress. Where once he degraded the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, now he has glorified the way of the Sea, the land across the Jordan, Galilee of the Nations.

Readings from the Book of Truth

I come for you to take you to My Father. I come to fulfill His Divine Will and to complete the Covenant

September 17, 2013 @ 10:45pm

My dearly beloved daughter, when you find this Work difficult and hesitate to give the world bad news, you must understand that you are only the messenger. You are an instrument of the Holy God, the Most High and it is your duty to respond to His Call. Your obedience is essential and you must not fear the repercussions, which may befall you as a prophet of the Lord.

All events foretold have been laid down in the beginning and form part of God’s Plan to complete the Covenant to gather His children, finally, so that they can live in harmony in His Divine Will. The final battle between My Father’s hierarchy and the evil one means that many people, who leave themselves exposed, will become infested by sin and will turn against their brothers who remain loyal to God.

When the battle is being fought many wicked atrocities will be carried out, by the enemies of God, against His beloved children. But as I have told you before, they can only go so far, because they do not have the power to destroy humanity, although they believe that they do.

Take comfort, all of you, because My Father will intervene with the wicked actions of those who want to control all nations and He will strike them dead those who dare to hurt His children. Many poor souls will suffer during such persecutions, but My Father is ever-merciful. His Power cannot be touched. His Hand is Almighty. He can, at any time, cast away His enemies. But the prophecies foretold, and which must take place before My Second Coming, are a reality. They will unfold in a way, which may not be obvious to all of you, but know this. Prayer is your weapon. Prayer will provide you with the armour you need to defeat the evil one. Prayer will dilute the impact of war, suffering and every kind of persecution inflicted upon the human race by the enemies of God. Prayer will save you and all those for whom you pray. Your prayers will destroy evil and when the Great Day comes you will cry tears of joy when you witness the New Generation, those billions of people who have been salvaged because of your response to My Call.

While My Messages bring a mixture of sadness, fear, frustration – they also bring hope because they create much conversion. My Father’s Plan is unknown to most of you. What you need to understand is this. His Plan will destroy all His enemies. By allowing all these trials to take place, He will free the human race, at last, from its bondage to sin. Be patient. Be calm. For soon joy, love and peace will finally be yours for eternity.

I come only because we are as one – one holy family in God’s Kingdom. I come for you to take you to My Father. I come to fulfill His Divine Will and to complete the Covenant. I come to bring you the Truth.

Your loving Saviour

Jesus Christ

The Third Seal will be revealed when man will scramble for food as famines grip humanity.

16 March 2013 @ 3:25pm

My dearly beloved daughter, the tides will unleash and the destruction, caused by many wars, will commence as foretold.

The timing of the arrival of the false prophet will coincide with the declaration of wars all over the world. These wars will be triggered instantly and men will cower in fear as the implications become clear. Wars will take root and roll out like storms in the desert, where they will gain momentum and catch all of those who feel that their peace is guaranteed, like a thief in the night.

So many countries will be involved that it will take everyone by surprise. Soon the antichrist will make himself known in the midst of the carnage. Confusion, fear and loss of crops will compound the problem. Not long after, the Third Seal will be revealed when man will scramble for food as famines grip humanity. Starved of food, starved of spirit, starved of help, mankind will grasp at anything or anyone, which offers respite.

The stage will have been set for the antichrist to arrive and announce himself to the world. By this time, mankind will be so relieved because of the man of peace, who offers so much hope, that they will become his willing slaves. They will fall for his elaborate plan to restructure the world and bring all nations together. The plan, they will be told, will be for the good of all and to rid the world of terrorism. The enemies, he will say he fights, and whom he will exert control over, are innocent victims used by him in the deceit, which he will present to the world.

When peace, or what seems like a truce, is restored, then will come the next stage, the unity of all nations, all religions, all countries, into one. This is when the union between the false prophet and the antichrist will become clear.

Those who will have been given the Truth, and whose names are in the Book of the Living, will know what is happening. Others, blind to the Truth of My Teachings, will not be so fortunate. Then it will be a matter of waiting. My Patience will mean that I will strive to save and protect those who will not be able to discern the Truth.

My Patience and My Mercy will result in Divine Intervention on a grand scale to save all God’s children from the grasp of the beast, whose only objective is to encourage sin. For there is one thing you must know; behind the charming allure of the antichrist will lie the plan to encourage sin, so that humanity will make the final choice – to side with the beast in defiance of God. When that time comes and after every attempt is made by Me to save souls it will be over.

Only the elect will be taken into My Kingdom.

Your Jesus

Prayer Theme: Salvation of Souls

Overview of Readings

1.Bible: Isaiah 15: 5-9 (Speaks of famine, rivers filled with blood, chastisments)

2. B of T: 9th, 2011 (God the Father speaks of His last Act of Divine Mercy – the Warning. He tells us time is short and that we must pray for our loved ones. )

3. B of T: 13th February, 2013 (Jesus speaks of the work of Masonry and their plan to destroy the Church – of the false prophet and the antichrist. He tells of how Pope Benedict was forced into this action” (i.e. his resignation).

Bible (Douay Rheims) 

Isaiah 15: 5-9

[5] My heart shall cry to Moab, the bars thereof shall flee unto Segor a heifer of three years old: for by the ascent of Luith they shall go up weeping: and in the way of Oronaim they shall lift up a cry of destruction.

[6] For the waters of Nemrim shall be desolate, for the grass is withered away, the spring is faded, all the greenness is perished. [7] According to the greatness of their work, is their visitation also: they shall lead them to the torrent of the willows. [8] For the cry is gone round about the border of Moab: the howling thereof unto Gallim, and unto the well of Elim the cry thereof. [9] For the waters of Dibon are filled with blood: for I will bring more upon Dibon: the lion upon them that shall flee of Moab, and upon the remnant of the land.

Readings from the Book of Truth

2. God the Father – Heed now My final calling on mankind

13th February, 2013

My daughter, tell the world of the Love I have for all of My creatures everywhere. Also inform them that I will now mastermind the greatest Act of Divine intervention seen on Earth since the Resurrection of My beloved Son Jesus Christ. All is prepared for this Great Act of Mercy, which I have sanctioned to help save all of you.

My Love for you means that while I intend to fight the deceiver in his attempts to destroy mankind I will now allow one last Act of Mercy to convert you. This last Act to redeem you in My Eyes means that man can once again learn the Truth of My Existence.

My children, please bow now and ask for Mercy for your family and loved ones. If they are not in a state of grace, they will find The Warning difficult. You must inform them of the need to meditate on the Truth.

The time is short. The Warning is almost upon you. Once it is over, you will have time to decide which path you wish to choose, the path of Divine Light or the path of the deceiver. The choice will be yours.

After some time if man does not turn his back on his wicked ways I will destroy those countries, which pay homage to The deceiver. They will hide when My Hand falls in punishment, but they will have nowhere to go.

My patience is running out as I now plan to unite all those who believe in Me, the Creator of all things and take them with Me into the New Era of Peace. Those who choose to walk the other way will be cast into the fires of Hell. Heed now this final calling on mankind. This is the time for you to decide your future. Pray for those blind to My Love – for many of them, when the Truth is revealed to them, once more will defy Me and turn their backs.

Your beloved Creator, God the Father,  King of the Most High

3. Masonry has infiltrated My Church, on earth, and soon the schism, as foretold, will create division and disquiet amongst My faithful servants

February 13, 2013

My dearly beloved daughter, there is a rage in Heaven, at this time, as the Crown of Thorns descend to crush My Body, the Catholic Church, on earth.

This prophecy given to you, in much detail, over the last two years, has come to pass. Now, as My other Revelations will soon be realized, very few of My sacred servants will be able to ignore My Pleas to the human race, at this ungodly hour in your time.

They, the wicked group have begun their campaign, to rid the earth of the Truth of My Teachings. My Holy Vicar has been forced into this action and will suffer greatly as a result. Masonry has infiltrated My Church on earth and soon the schism, as foretold, will create division and disquiet amongst My faithful servants.

Many have no idea as to the deceit with which they are being presented. Nor do they know that the foundation of My Church, the Catholic Church, has been crushed to dust. In its place, will rise the abomination and I will intervene and send signs in order to warn every soul of the importance of praying, so that they can discern Truth from fiction.

It is not the collapse of the Catholic Church, which will soon become evident, which will divide the world. It will be their involvement in the creation of a New World Church, a one-world religion, which will introduce paganism and idolatry.

The false prophet has prepared well and his time is coming. In collaboration with the antichrist they will bring the world to its knees. It won’t be to God they will pay homage, it will be to the beast.

I urge all My disciples, My Christian followers, everywhere, to remain calm. Pray for peace and allow Me, your Jesus, to guide you at this time.

I call on all of My cardinals, My bishops and My sacred servants, to unite your flock and remain loyal to My Teachings. Pay close attention to what you will be asked to preach for it will change. Your homilies will be devised and written for a secular world and they will have no substance.

In a bid, to be seen to modernise the Catholic Church, this is what will be presented to you – the promotion of all-inclusive congregations – all religions rolled into one, so-called Christian Unified Church.  All the outward signs may, at first, seem the same, but that is what you are meant to see. Slowly you will no longer recognise My Holy Scripture, as new words, phrases and new formats to the presentation of the Sacraments will be placed before you.

There will be a panic amongst those true loyal conservative priests who will be alarmed at the new modern format the Church will embrace when they will re-launch a new type of modern alternative Church.

It will be through the network of masonry, which is infiltrated in every corner of the Catholic Church, governments and the media, that this abomination will be presented as a great innovation.

This is the beginning of the end. My Presence will be discreetly banished for the new ceremony of the Masses. All the pomp and ceremony will mask an empty tabernacle, for My Divine Presence, will no longer be permitted, by My Father.

You must remain united and, if you are Catholic, continue to attend daily Masses and Holy Communion. For all Christians you must know that, you too, will be lured into the New World Religion, plotted by nations who are in league with the traitors of My Catholic Church. They wish to create a secular, humanistic, façade – a façade, which masks the evil it will promote, subtly.

The battle has begun, but you, My beloved followers, are stronger than you think. I Am here always. I have prepared you well. You must, to survive, say this Crusade Prayer.

Crusade of Prayer (100) For the survival of Christianity

O dear Jesus, we beg You for the skills to survive the trials we now face, as the last True Pope finishes his Mission for You.

Help us to sustain the terrible abuse we will now have to face because of the collapse of the Church, which we once knew.

Never let us deviate from the Truth of Your Divine Word.

Help us to remain silent when the attacks are placed upon our shoulders to entice us to turn our backs on You and the Sacraments you gave the world.

Cover Your Army with the powerful Love we need, like a shield, to protect us against the false prophet and the antichrist.

Help Your Church on earth to spread and multiply, so that they can adhere to the Truth and help you lead our brothers and sisters on the Path of Truth to prepare ourselves, adequately, for Your Second Coming. Amen.

Do not fret, My followers. Everything is in My Sacred Hands. Be patient. Do not justify any of your actions, in My Name, for when you do this, you defend My Word, when all you need to do is to proclaim My Word.

Your Jesus

Coming very soon!!! War, famine…

+AMDG+

World war

A world war nears as tensions continue to rise. The failing economies and the Middle East tensions will boil over. Both sides of this war are funded by the same elite group who are seeking population reduction. Terrorism, civil wars and martial law will be used to maintain people in a state of fear and to control their movement.

The antichrist

As wars escalate, as more countries suffer financial ruin and as despair mounts, the antichrist will appear seemingly out of nowhere and negotiate peace pacts with warring countries. This false peace will be short-lived but it will be long enough in months for the antichrist to ensnare the bulk of the world. A big clue as to who he is will be when he negotiates a two-state solution for Israel between the Jews and Palestinians. The rich and famous will want to be seen with him. He will appear meek and compassionate but will truly be the worst tyrant mankind has ever witnessed.

Famine

There will be famine throughout the world. This will be a coordinated effort by those who swear allegiance to the antichrist. It will be a ploy to enslave people to the antichrist. Prepare now!

One world government, one world currency
The antichrist will bring back prosperity to the world in an elaborate plan. To take part in the return to prosperity will require acceptance of the chip, the ‘mark of the beast’. Without it, you will not be able to make purchases. Do NOT accept the chip! Accepting the chip will also include swearing allegiance to the antichrist and forfeiting your soul to the devil.

War of Persecution

After a short while, the antichrist will leverage the military might of Russia, China and Iran to invade and persecute those who refuse the chip. Mass executions of millions of people who were duped into taking the chip will also occur. Those who die as martyrs swearing allegiance to God will be saved.

Compelling Signs – Darkness of Evil and Blood Moons

+AMDG+

The world is entering a darkness never seen since before God created light.

A darkness of evil that will overtake the earth on multiple fronts including economic collapse, world war, global famine, apostasy, schism of the Catholic Church and all these events are the events initiated by evil.

God will reply with storms that will last weeks, earthquakes that will be felt across multiple countries, volcanoes, shifting weather patterns and the occasional comet. It has already begun!

Douay Rheims Bible Genesis1:14  And God said: Let there be lights made in the firmament of heaven, to divide the day and the night, and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years:

Blood Moons

The term “blood moon” is fairly recent but the events themselves known as “blood moons” date back centuries to the time of Jesus. It represents a tetrad of lunar eclipses [tetrad = group of four].

In this particular definition, blood moons are tetrads of lunar eclipses occurring specifically on the days of Passover – Feast of Tabernacles – Passover – Feast of Tabernacles without any other partial of full lunar eclipses between the 1st Passover and the 2nd Feast of Tabernacles.

This has only occurred 9 times in history. We are currently in the 9th. In the very first tetrad of blood moons, Jesus Christ was crucified. In the other 7, there has always been some calamity or persecution towards Christians or Jews that would occur.

There is nothing to suggest that this time will be any different from the previous 8. If anything, this series of blood moons may be the sign to the culmination of all previous ones as there is a series of additional of eclipses in perfect symmetry in number of days before and after the blood moons that has never occurred in the previous eight tetrads.

If God’s signs hold true, (and there is no reason to believe they wouldn’t given 8 previous instances), Christians and Jews are about to get persecuted. And if the symmetry of the additional eclipses is any harbinger, the persecution will be on a scale never seen before.

Previous blood moon tetrads:

  1.  32-33 Christ Passover and Crucifixion
  2. 162-163 – flood, famine and plague. Rome flooded, martyrdom of Christian by    Romans, and plague that killed 1/3 of the Roman Empire
  3.  795-796 Islamic invasion of Europe
  4.  842-843 Islamic invasion of Rome
  5.  860-861 Arab crusaders slaughter millions of Christians in North Africa and Spain.
  6.  1493-1494 Jews tortured to convert to Christianity; Spanish Inquisition
  7.  1949-1950 Israel war of independence
  8.  1967-1968 Israel 6-day war; US defeated during Tet offensive of Vietnam;  Martin Luther King and JFK assassinated.

Our Prayer theme today: “Discipleship”

The readings are chosen after the Crusade Prayers and after a prayer to the Holy Spirit for guidance and listed below An overview of the readings will be posted below. It is recommended that you read the messages in full by clicking on the link beneath each one.

The Readings today:

  1. Bible (Douay Rheims)

Ezechiel 4:

A prophetic description of the siege of Jerusalem, and the famine that shall reign there.

[1] And thou, O son of man, take thee a tile, and lay it before thee: and draw upon it the plan of the city of Jerusalem. [2] And lay siege against it, and build forts, and cast up a mount, and set a camp against it, and place battering rams round about it. [3] And take unto thee an iron pan, and set it for a wall of iron between thee and the city: and set thy face resolutely against it, and it shall be besieged, and thou shalt lay siege against it: it is a sign to the house of Israel. [4] And thou shalt sleep upon thy left side, and shalt lay the iniquities of the house of Israel upon it, according to the number of the days that thou shalt sleep upon it, and thou shalt take upon thee their iniquity. [5] And I have laid upon thee the years of their iniquity, according to the number of the days three hundred and ninety days: and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Israel.

[6] And when thou hast accomplished this, thou shalt sleep again upon thy right side, and thou shalt take upon thee the iniquity of the house of Juda forty days: a day for a year, yea, a day for a year I have appointed to thee. [7] And thou shalt turn thy face to the siege of Jerusalem, and thy arm shall be stretched out: and thou shalt prophesy against it. [8] Behold I have encompassed thee with bands: and thou shalt not turn thyself from one side to the other, till thou hast ended the days of thy siege. [9] And take to thee wheat and barley, and beans, and lentils, and millet, and fitches, and put them in one vessel, and make thee bread thereof according to the number of the days that thou shalt lie upon thy side: three hundred and ninety days shalt thou eat thereof. [10] And thy meat that thou shalt eat, shall be in weight twenty staters a day: from time to time thou shalt eat it.

[11] And thou shalt drink water by measure, the sixth part of a hin: from time to time thou shalt drink it, [12] And thou shalt eat it as barley bread baked under the ashes: and thou shalt cover it, in their sight, with the dung that cometh out of a man. [13] And the Lord said: So shall the children of Israel eat their bread all filthy among the nations whither I will cast them out. [14] And I said: Ah, ah, ah, O Lord God, behold my soul hath not been defiled, and from my infancy even till now, I have not eaten any thing that died of itself, or was torn by beasts, and no unclean flesh hath entered into my mouth. [15] And he said to me: Behold I have given thee neat’ s dung for man’ s dung, and thou shalt make thy bread therewith.

[16] And he said to me: Son of man: Behold, I will break in pieces the staff of bread in Jerusalem: and they shall eat bread by weight, and with care: and they shall drink water by measure, and in distress. [17] So that when bread and water fail, every man may fall against his brother, and they may pine away in their iniquities.

 

Book of Truth:

2. Mother of Salvation: The antichrist, upon his announcement, will declare that he is a devout Christian

23rd August, 2013

…There is an organized attempt being made to wipe out Christianity and this takes many forms. …. These other creeds will be given great support when they plead for justice, in the name of their rights as citizens. What this will do is to spread further the sins which are abhorrent to my Father.

People will be forced to accept sin in their countries and it will become an offense for Christians to object to these laws. Christians will be viewed as being uncharitable, right wing and out of touch with the human rights of others.

… Sin will cause disease of the flesh in many nations, as the judgements of the Seals are declared by the Saviour of humanity and poured down by the angels of the Lord. Many will be killed in atonement for the wickedness of man. This purification will continue until there will remain only those who are immune to death because of their love for God.

Christians will suffer greatly in a number of ways. Their faith will be taken away from them and in its place an abomination will be witnessed. Their pain, which has already begun, is the same as that experienced by my Son, at this time. Then, they will have to witness an astonishing sight, as the antichrist, upon his announcement, will declare that he is a devout Christian. He will use many extracts from the Bible in his speeches to the world. … Out of his mouth will spill many sweet and comforting words and he will appear to be a godsend, in that he will be seen to amend the wrongs against Christians. He will carefully construct how he is perceived by Christians and especially Roman Catholics, for these will be his main target.

All will admire the antichrist and his so-called christian acts, gestures and his perceived love of Holy Scripture will make him instantly acceptable by many. He will draw all nations together and set about holding ceremonies for other religions and, in particular, pagan organizations, so that they can work together to bring about world peace. He will succeed in uniting countries, which had been enemies up till then. Silence will be heard in war torn countries and his image will appear everywhere. His final, great achievement will be when he brings all those nations he unites, into the domain of the Catholic Church and all other Christian denominations. This unification will form the new, one world religion.

From that day forth, Hell will break loose on Earth and the influence of demons will be at its greatest level since before the great flood. …outside of the churches they will indulge in sin openly, for no sin will shame them. Under the hypnotic direction of the false trinity – the trinity created by Satan – they will crave every kind of sin as a means to sustain their newfound appetite.

This wickedness will include sins of the flesh, where nakedness will be acceptable, as man will become involved in obscene sins of the flesh in public places. Murders will be common and committed by many, including children.

Satanic worship and black masses will take place in many Catholic Churches. Abortion will be seen as a solution for every kind of problem and will be permitted right up to the day of birth.

…. If you are seen with a true Cross you will find that you have committed an offense, because you will be breaking the law. The law in your lands will become a dual law – where politics and religion will be entwined in the new world order.

… So infested will they become that they will betray brother, sister, mother and father, to the authorities, if they should remain loyal to Christianity. Your only hope, children, is prayer to sustain you through this period.

I urge you to keep all holy objects, rosary beads, blessed candles, holy water, a copy of the Bible and the holy daily Missal along with the Crusade of Prayer book. You must keep the Seal of the Living God in your home and on you if possible. My Medal of Salvation will convert those who wear it and they will be shown Mercy by my Son. I now request you, child, to have the Medal of Salvation produced now and a Scapular of the Seal of the Living God made.


Go in peace, children, and be calm as this trial will, because of the Mercy of God, be short. Trust in me, your Mother, as I will be with you always during your trials. You will never be alone.

Your Mother, Mother of Salvation

Overview of the Readings:

The Bible reading from Ezechiel speaks of a siege against Jerusalem and the famine and lack of food, which seemed to mean the punishment God was sending them, with Jeremiah warning them. Their food had to be measured out to survive. Ezechiel had given them instructions according to God’s prophetic Word,

The second reading from the Book of Truth warns us about the advent of the antichrist. It describes how sin will become widespread and acceptable; how Christians will be viewed as uncharitable; how wearing a crucifix will be a crime; of satanic worship, black masses, and of how family members will betray each other to the authorities. Our dearest Mother reminds us how to protect ourselves: – by keeping with us “all holy objects, rosary beads, blessed candles, holy water, a copy of the Bible and the holy daily Missal along with the Crusade of Prayer book. As well as Seal of the Living God in our home and on us, as well as the Medal of Salvation which will convert those who wear it. The Scapular of the Seal is also mentioned.

We are reminded of important information to remind us what discipleship entails, and what will be required of us. We can’t say that we didn’t know. We have to build up our strength and our resources and our armoury.

 

 

Reflection on words from prophet Joel

Tonight’s bible reading:  Joel 2:1-2; 10-17

[1] The word of the Lord that came to Joel the son of Phatuel. [2] Hear this, ye old men, and give ear, all ye inhabitants of the land: did this ever happen in your days, or in the days of your fathers…

[10] The country is destroyed, the ground hath mourned: for the corn is wasted, the wine is confounded, the oil hath languished.

[11] The husbandmen are ashamed, the vinedressers have howled for the wheat, and for the barley, because the harvest of the field is perished. [12] The vineyard is confounded, and the fig tree hath languished: the pomegranate tree, and the palm tree, and the apple tree, and all the trees of the field are withered: because joy is withdrawn from the children of men. [13] Gird yourselves, and lament, O ye priests, howl, ye ministers of the altars: go in, lie in sackcloth, ye ministers of my God: because sacrifice and libation is cut off from the house of your God. [14] Sanctify ye a fast, call an assembly; gather together the ancients, all the inhabitants of the land into the house of your God: and cry ye to the Lord: [15] Ah, ah, ah, for the day: because the day of the Lord is at hand, and it shall come like destruction from the mighty.

[16] Is not your food cut off before your eyes, joy and gladness from the house of our God? [17] The beasts have rotted in their dung, the barns are destroyed, the storehouses are broken down: because the corn is confounded.

Reflection:

I opened directly on Joel 2: 10-17 and also my eye was drawn to the previous page Joel 2: verses 1-2.
In lines 16-17 I thought of how His Word appears to be overturned in order to be forgotten– whereby we would end up with no legacy. This is why the Jews pleaded and fasted- at the thought of their faith disappearing.

Yes the Day of The Lord comes indeed! And it is close. The reference is striking. Even more so because I had no idea there were so many perfectly applicable apocalyptic verses in the bible! And they all make sense right now. Thank you God for speaking with me and warning and reminding us as it encroaches.!
