The Wisdom and Hope we need (from Pope Benedict XVI)

AM+DG

We must always strive to have Faith, Hope and Charity. We have Christ as our Head – He leads us! We also have a true pope, Pope Benedict XVI who has not renounced the title of Vicar of Christ. Not many know and obey the true Roman Pontiff at this time!

Although the Chair of St Peter has an impostor on it, Pope Benedict still lives- and occasionally still speaks or writes. Occasionally his words reach us, outside his virtual prison of silence. He has left a legacy of writings over the years and even in more recent times, from which we can draw much information and wisdom. Sometimes he appears to give pointed messages such as, “The Lord wins in the end.”

Pope Benedict, in many speeches and encyclicals which share his wisdom, seeks to lead us. The article below holds much to encourage us. Look to him to be led, look to God and to the Saints. Remember, God knows what He is doing and we must trust in Him!

“Benedict XVI Warned Us Years Ago of Dangers Ahead

Several times during his pontificate, Pope Benedict XVI sounded the alarm about the direction society was taking, and told us what we must do in response.

Joseph Pronechen January 2, 2021

Like the seers and prophets of old, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI several times warned about the direction society was taking and where it was heading, and what we should do.

“In the Old and New Testaments, the Lord proclaims judgment on the unfaithful vineyard,” Benedict XVI said in his homily to bishops gathered together in October 2005.

“The threat of judgment also concerns us, the Church in Europe, Europe and the West in general. … The Lord is also crying out to our ears… ‘If you do not repent I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place.’ Light can also be taken away from us and we do well to let this warning ring out with its full seriousness in our hearts, while crying to the Lord: ‘Help us to repent! Give all of us the grace of true renewal! Do not allow your light in our midst to blow out! Strengthen our faith, our hope and our love, so that we can bear good fruit!’”

During his 2010 Christmas greetings he warned, “The Book of Revelation (18:13) includes among the great sins of Babylon — … — the fact that it trades with bodies and souls and treats them as commodities. …”

Benedict warned that this fatal misunderstanding of freedom… actually undermines man’s freedom and ultimately destroys it.”


Benedict put a spotlight on the “power of terroristic ideologies. Violent acts are apparently made in the name of God, …  then the drugs “like a voracious beast clawing “all parts of the world ..;.Or even the way of living proclaimed by public opinion: today we must do things like this, marriage no longer counts, chastity is no longer a virtue, and so on.”

Earlier in 2010 Benedict also turned to the Book of Revelation. “Concerning this battle in which we find ourselves, of this taking power away from God, of this fall of false gods, that fall because they are not deities, but powers that can destroy the world, Chapter 12 of Revelations mentions these, …” He focused in on the river of water the dragon spews at the fleeing woman.

Benedict looked on the river as “the currents that dominate all and wish to make faith in the Church disappear, the Church that seems no longer to have a place in the face of the force of these currents that impose themselves as the only rationality, as the only way to live.”

On Pentecost 2012, in his homily Benedict reminded about Babel and its tower, “a kingdom in which men had concentrated so much power that they thought they no longer needed to rely on a distant God and that they were powerful enough to be able to build a way to heaven by themselves in order to open its gates and usurp God’s place.”

This biblical account holds “a perennial truth” we see in history and in our world. The progress of science and technology have enabled us to dominate the forces of nature, to manipulate the elements and to reproduce living beings, almost to the point of manufacturing the very human being. In this situation praying to God seems obsolete or pointless, because we ourselves can construct and achieve whatever we like… Yet we do not realize that we are reliving the same experience as Babel….

Benedict (affirmed) that Sacred Scripture tells us unity can “only exist as a gift of God’s Spirit who will give us a new heart and a new language, a new ability to communicate. And this is what happened at Pentecost.”

In Caritas in Veritate he warned again, “A humanism which excludes God is an inhuman humanism. Only a humanism open to the Absolute can guide us in the promotion and building of forms of social and civic life.”

In 2010, during his Christmas greetings, Benedict echoed the prophets of old, saying, “Excita, Domine, potentiam tuam, et veni (Stir up, O Lord, your power and come).”

“Repeatedly during the season of Advent the Church’s liturgy prays in these or similar words. They are invocations that were probably formulated as the Roman Empire was in decline. … The sun was setting over an entire world. Frequent natural disasters further increased this sense of insecurity. There was no power in sight that could put a stop to this decline. All the more insistent, then, was the invocation of the power of God: the plea that he might come and protect his people from all these threats.”


Benedict did not leave us without hope and without a way forward and out. For instance, he said in Light of the World, “The Church is always called upon to do what God asked of Abraham, which is to see to it that there are enough righteous men to repress evil and destruction.”

Hope and Action

When Benedict talked about Revelation 12 and the water spewed at the Woman and her Child, he emphasized something other than the possible harm. The Woman is not harmed because “the earth that absorbs these currents is the faith of the simple people, that does not allow itself to be overcome by these rivers and that saves the Mother and saves the Son.…”

Benedict added that Psalm 82 has a “final word” on a source of the problem and solution even after verse 5 laments that “the foundations of the earth are shaken. We see this today, with the climatic problems, how the foundations of the earth are shaken, how they are threatened by our behavior. The external foundations are shaken because the internal foundations are shaken, the moral and religious foundations, the faith that follows the right way of living. And we know that faith is the foundation, and, undoubtedly, the foundations of the earth cannot be shaken if they remain close to the faith, to true wisdom.”

But Benedict… asserted, “History, in fact, is not in the hands of the powers of darkness, chance or human decisions alone. When evil energy that we see is unleashed, when Satan vehemently bursts in, when a multitude of scourges and ills surface, the Lord, the supreme arbiter of historical events, arises. He leads history wisely towards the dawn of the new heavens and the new earth of which, in the image of the new Jerusalem, the last part of the Book of Revelation sings.”

And in the 2010 speech he directed us to hope and to a solution as he quoted Psalm 82:8: “Rise up, O God, judge the earth; for all the nations belong to you!”

Then he ended with this plea:

“Thus we say to the Lord:

‘Arise at this moment, take the world in your hands,

protect your Church,

protect humanity,

protect the earth.’

And we once again entrust ourselves to the Mother of God, Mary, and pray:

You, the great believer, you who have opened the earth to the heavens, help us, open the doors today as well, that truth may win, the will of God, which is the true good, the true salvation of the world.’ Amen.”

Early in January, 2012, through The Book of Truth, we were given a prayer to pray for Pope Benedict; it was to keep him safe and enable him to lead us. Read the prayer below:

Crusade Prayer (23) for Pope Benedict’s safety

O My Eternal Father, on behalf of Your beloved Son, Jesus Christ, and the suffering He endured to save the world from sin, I pray now that You protect Your Holy Vicar, Pope Benedict, Head of Your Church on Earth, so that he too can help save Your children, and all Your sacred servants, from the scourge of Satan, and his dominion of fallen angels who walk the Earth, stealing souls.

O Father, protect Your Pope so that Your children can be guided on the True Path towards Your New Paradise on Earth.

Amen.

A link to the message that came with the prayer is here: https://missionofsalvation.com/message-0320/

The first line of this message especially gives us hope:

“My child, Satan’s power is getting weaker by the day, as the Holy Spirit continues to spread His wings over all of God’s children.”

The Nativity Scene: It’s Ugly and Lifeless…but what does it mean?

Mummified baby Jesus?

No sign is insignificant. Before we turn from it, in disgust, we must analyse it, for its message, and react appropriately.

I think Holy Masses of reparation are in order. Put on sackcloth and fasting over this abomination…for this is the sign which welcomes in Communism, atheism and the new world order.

What am I talking about? The sneering sign given by the communist, globalist ‘usurper’ in the Vatican this Christmas; an affront to God and to mankind: the 2020 Nativity. Let’s look at it closely.

The angel has a halo -but the Holy Family figures do not. The angel looks like an Egyptian mummy; not an Egyptian moving figure, but a sarcophagus. It has wasp-like nest decorations growing on its walls/wings. Its body is like a wooden reel.

The Virgin Mary figure is broad-shouldered, does not seem girl-like and is not only ugly, with unnatural yellow coils for hair, her body constructed in obvious pieces, but she has been given a look of terror on her face. Wide-eyed, worried eyebrows. Hands glued together in prayer.

None look at the Christ-child in adoration. He is ignored– gazes are directed outward. He is dressed in some strange frilly cement frock with a cement wig. He looks empty of life and as un-Christ-like, as unhuman– or peg doll-like, as possible. His head is much wider than even the Virgin Mother’s. St. Joseph’s head is equally misshapen and ugly– features out of proportion to his head. They all look stiff and doll-like; parodies of God’s most precious handiwork.

And have you looked closely at the animals? Firstly, they are more naturalistic than the figures, which is incongruous.

Secondly, the donkey (usually a humble figure symbolising the carrying of Christ) is facing the sheepa sheep which has the horns of a goat and the face of a wolf or lion, in hunt. It appears to be quite deliberately “a wolf in sheep’s clothing”. They actually are both facing each other antagonistically: the donkey ears are right back, it’s brow furrowed, eyes glaring, it’s nostrils flared and it’s lower lip dropped and curled. It’s neck is arched. It is full of venom or, at least, is ready to fight.

It is clearly at war with the wolf in sheep’s clothing whose demeanour has the steady, fixed, direct gaze of an animal posed to pounce– crouched directly opposite, and staring down, the donkey. The wolf’s lips are not drawn because it is not warning an adversary, it has lined up it’s prey for the killin its direct gaze. It is self-assured.

All of the side figures equally have roles and equally represent something: including an astronaut and nasty, Moloch-like figure. The original set apparently also had a Muslim, a Jew and an executioner, so you can see the sort of nativity set they come from… but these were left out on this occasion. ( See here: https://www.inspiredtraveler.ca/photos-they-installed-a-manger-in-the-vatican-that-includes-the-figure-of-an-astronaut/)

There is also however a baying goose (showing it is in danger), and a turkey (both signifying Capitalism) not to mention a pied piper -“in action”. With the wolf ready to make short work of the humble donkey– who carried both The Blessed Mother and Our Lord, it seems logical the goose and turkey are next. The Pied Piper is bringing them in. Have you latched on to the narrative yet?

Basically, it’s another Nativity scene from hell. Remember the erotic one a few years ago? See our analysis “The Nativity Scene of the anti-church”  here:

Impressions

“Following last year’s hideous display of bad taste and politically correct pandering, this year’s Nativity scene in St. Peter’s Square plunges to the nadir of this annus horribilis.”

  •  Remnant Disciple observed: This Nativity scene is horrific.The one in 2017 was pretty bad – the “works of mercy” one. This one, however, speaks of paganism (Characters looking like Egyptian mummies); objects. There are no human images they look like stoneno soulno “likeness of God”. 
The devil hates Jesus, Mary and mankind: so yes – it is demonic.
It is a sign of how the Catholic Faith is being manipulated and twisted and turned upside down. Holiness is portrayed in beauty (likeness of God).

 

  • Remnant Child of Mary observed: All I can currently think is that this “display” is an embarrassment to Christianity. Not worthy. Not holy. Not even nice!! 
It is ugly, immature, industrial, unimaginative and even boorish.  They seek the reduce Faith to as far from our human reality and our spiritual beauty, as possible. They are a deliberate insult-who would worship before these??!!And I think they are an insult telling us that “communist rule is coming.Pretend you like it- or else. Because you can’t do anything about it anyway.” That’s why this is lifeless, machine-like, over-sized/dominating ugly and imposed. Furthermore their choice is challenging us because they think we can’t do anything about it. It’s as if they are sayingLook at the message (which is really a Masonic insult) we just displayed -and you won’t /can’t do a thing!” I’d like to think we can! I think the communist connection is clear.
 
 Freemasons:
1. They hate God and worship Satan (in whatever form people choose)
2. Freemasonry refers to its god as the Great Architect of the Universe. In honoring this generic “Great Architect,” the person involved in Freemasonry does not worship the God of the Bible but another god. This nativity honours construction it seems.
 
Communism  honours the industrial, practical, inexpensive, impersonal and unspiritual (or atheist). The display also is thrust upon a world, imposing in size and style for no reason other than it can. It aims to be pointless- in order to make a point. They are trying to say that Christianity is pointless.
 

Messages from the Book of Truth

  • Mother of Salvation: Not one door was opened to allow my Son to come into the world with dignity

July 3, 2013 @ 12:57pm

“... When I was about to give birth, not one door was opened to allow my Son to come into the world with dignity. As each door was slammed in the Face of God, Who sent His only Son to redeem man from sin, it will be just the same as God now prepares the way for the Second Coming of His Son.

As God prepares the world for this great day, doors will again be shut, in defiance, against the Word of God. You, as the messenger, will continue to face fierce opposition. Many will not only keep their doors closed – this will only be one insult – they will scream terrible obscenities and hurt you, my child, because they do not want to hear the Word of God.

The spirit of evil prevails at this crucial time in the history of mankind and will crush even the most holy amongst God’s children. Only the most courageous will withstand the spirit of evil, which will infest millions so that they will reject the Mercy of my Son.

.Remember, the battle for souls is being fought by the angels and saints in my Father’s Kingdom, against the deceiver.…”

And a  Message of Hope for Christmas:

Oh what joy it would bring Me were they to turn to Me on Christmas Day

22 December 2014 @ 8:45pm

My dearly beloved daughter, this is a message for the world, for Christmas Day. As all of you celebrate My Birthday, allow Me to enter your heart on this special day – for this day is MineInvite Me into your home as a favoured guest and introduce Me to those amongst your family, friends and neighbours, who may have forgotten about Me. Christmas may be a celebration about Me, but I am ignored amidst the great rejoicings, which take place. Allow mention of Me to gladden your hearts, to bring you joy and to bring you hope for the future – a future I secured for you from the day I was born.

Remind those who no longer revere Me, of the love that I have for them and how I long to be part of their lives again. Oh what joy it would bring Me were they to turn to Me on Christmas Day and ask Me to bring them My Peace and My Love.  If they would come to Me on Christmas Day I would envelop them into the safety of My Divine refuge and never let them separate from Me again.

My beloved followers, you are My Family, and I am your family. Through My Mercy, I take you into the Bosom of My Beloved Father, who loves you with the passion of a tender-hearted parent. Oh how He loves you and how much pleasure He feels when you acknowledge Me, and call on Me, for My Help.

You mean everything to Me and My Love for you is all encompassing, way beyond your comprehension. It is therefore with a fiery compassion and fierce determination that I will fight for every one of you, to save you from the wickedness of My enemies. I guard your souls with great jealousy and will fight the good fight to bring you safe and sound into My Kingdom. No matter how I am opposed; how much Christians have to suffer humiliation in My Name; however much seduction is placed before you by My adversary – I will win this battle for souls. That is a fact for nothing can stand between God and His children for He will not permit it. The man who does, will be toppled. Hatred will be destroyed and lies will be revealed for the shallowness upon which they were created. The Truth will stand the test of time.

I am coming soon to unite God’s children – His precious family. Lift your hearts, do not allow My foes to dampen your spirit and let hope be your only thought. Have complete confidence in My Great Mercy and be ready to welcome Me, your Saviour and Redeemer, back into your lives.  Rejoice, for My Promises will bring with them a cause for the greatest joy. This Christmas will be joyful, for My Time is short.

Your beloved Jesus

Message 1293

Finally:

Well, one thing is sure. Each year, each month, each week, there is more mockery and blasphemy of Christ and His Church. The evil one is trying his hardest to destroy any Faith that is left in this world.

However, do not let that happen! As the world turns away from ugliness, share the true beauty of God and His Teachings. Share His Love and the Hope we have through Faith at Christmas. Jesus says to look out for opportunities to re-introduce Him into people’s hearts, in little ways this Christmas. Our Blessed Mother of Salvation will help us!

This little musical narrative reflection reminds us how to welcome people in at Christmas. Enjoy! (From Remnantdisciples JtM)

 

 

 

A Message of Hope and Consolation for Christians

AM+DG

This message was part of a recent statewide zoom prayer meeting. It was from Volume 5 of the Book of Truth messages.It is a great source of Hope and Consolation for us. It describes to us how much Jesus loves us and fights for us. Jesus knows what we are experiencing and gives us much hope and joy in looking forward to the New Kingdom. (Remnant Disciple)

Never before, since My Crucifixion, has Christianity endured such persecution

06 May 2015 @ 10:31pm

My dearly beloved daughter, My Tears flow in great torrents at this time as the Holy Word of God is being torn asunder.

Love for Me, Jesus Christ, has dissipated and the spirit of My Church is drying up so that, soon, it will become but just a desert. It will be bereft of life and only the true faithful among My Church will keep the Heart of My Love beating steadily, while everything else, which surrounds it, will become dehydrated with every ounce of life sucked from it.
Never before, since My Crucifixion, has Christianity endured such persecution because of contempt against the Word of God.

All that is held sacred in My Father’s Heavenly Kingdom is being decimated by man, whose heart no longer feels love for his Creator God the Most High.Those who remain faithful to Him, and who love and cherish Him, will feel His Pain within their hearts like a sword, which pierces and inflicts terrible suffering but which will not kill. For those with true love for God will be unable to separate from Him because they are attached to Him by an umbilical cord, which cannot be severed.

God, through His Mercy, will destroy His enemies who try to steal the souls of those whose names are contained in the Book of Life. My Time is almost upon you.

Never give up hope or despair, when you witness the work of My nemesis and the speed by which his cunning wicked ways are accepted by unsuspecting souls. I Am first most a God of Great Patience and My Mercy will be poured over the human race in abundance amidst the flames of My Love. These flames will instil a renewal of faith in Me by those who have fallen away from Me, just as they will destroy Satan and every demon and fallen angel who hold hostage those souls who belong to Me,but who have separated from Me.

My Time will come, but not before the world will see the signs foretold in the Book of Revelation and the Book of Truth. Do not fear Me. Prepare for Me. Reject the false promises made by My enemies. Remain true, always, to My Word. My enemies will have no part in My Kingdom. My beloved faithful, including those who call out to Me, during the Warning, will never die. For theirs is the New Kingdom – My Kingdom – the One promised to Me, the Messiah, the King for all time – a world without end.

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. It is God’s Gift to you so that you will never forget My Promise to come again to judge the living those alive on this earth as well as those who died in My Favour.

I will show signs of every kind all over the world now. Those who are blessed with the Gift of the Holy Spirit, will know they have been sent to you by the Command of My beloved Father.

Go in Peace. Listen to Me only through these messages at this time.
I love you all dearly and I have claimed you as Mine. Let no man attempt to steal one single soul from Me, for he will suffer eternal torment for his actions.

Your Jesus

SERVANT of God Sr. Lucia Santos gave a most prescient word regarding the coming times that we are now living:

People must recite the Rosary every day. Our Lady repeated this in all her apparitions, as if to arm us in advance against these times of diabolical disorientation, so that we would not let ourselves be fooled by false doctrines, and that through prayer, the elevation of our soul to God would not be diminished…. This is a diabolical disorientation invading the world and misleading souls! It is necessary to stand up to it… —Sister Lucy, to her friend Dona Maria Teresa da Cunha

This “diabolical disorientation” is manifesting in confusion, fear, and division, not only in every day life but notably in the field of science. One of the main reasons for this disorientation is that the voice of the Church is no longer heard, or rather, respected; the sexual and financial scandals that have rocked the clergy have taken a catastrophic toll on credibility.

JtM Crusade Prayer Meeting zooming along on Thurs. 23rd April, 2020

AM+DG

Prayer Theme: Daily prayers plus Suffering and Persecution

Bible Reading: Song of Songs 7:12-14

Book of Truth: 8th Aug., 2011

Editor’s note: The readings seemed to be about God’s Love for us. The reading from the Book of Truth was consoling and something to be joyful for – especially in these times when things look to become very difficult. Jesus knows how we feel and He reaches out to us to encourage us. The phrase ‘the days are getting shorter..’ brought a smile to my face because here it is Autumn and they really are getting shorter. It seems to me that every week Jesus knows exactly what it is that we should read. But then again – we know that He is present at every prayer group as He told us in the Book of Truth.

Reading from the Bible

Song of Songs 7:12-14

Come, my lover! Let us go out to the fields,

let us pass the night among the henna.

13 Let us go early to the vineyards, and see

if the vines are in bloom,

If the buds have opened,

if the pomegranates have blossomed;

There will I give you my love.

14 The mandrakes give forth fragrance,

and over our doors are all choice fruits;

Fruits both fresh and dried, my lover,

have I kept in store for you.

 

Reading from the Book of Truth

Children, do not become discouraged by tales of despair facing mankind

08 August 2011 @ 7:45pm

My dearly beloved daughter, it is days since I communicated with you. This wasto give you a chance to listen to the advice of My beloved Father, God the Most High, to help you understand the role of suffering to save souls.

Red sky

The days now are getting shorter as the time for The Warning draws nearer. All is set for the Flames of My Love, which will envelop the whole world as one. The angels, the choirs in Heaven await now the Day of Glory when I return to give man his last opportunity to accept My Existence and that of My Eternal Father.

Children, do not become discouraged by rumour or tales of despair facing mankind, instead, look to Me now and confide in Me your fears. Mankind will be given such a wonderful Gift. Not only will man encounter Me, face-to-face but they will be overjoyed to learn and see the Truth presented before their very eyes.

This is to be a great day in history when hope and love will be shown to all of you. Even hardened sinners will fall down and weep tears of remorse. This is good news, children, for all can be saved if they abandon their pride and ego. All, through their own free will, are to be united to allow Me to enter their hearts so that they can be guided towards the Light.

For many sinners in mortal sin, this Light will burn their eyes and their soul. It will be painful. If they can only endure the fright of seeing how they offend Me, they will become strong and will convert.

So, children of My army, I say to you now. Smile, for the event will be the most extraordinary in your lives and your existing love for Me and My Eternal Father will infuse your soul. So much love will infiltrate your minds, bodies and souls that you will be renewed in spirit forever. Pray now, for all of you, for the time is short. The world is being prepared now for The Warningso that all will be ready for My great Gift.

Continue, My children, with devotion, this Month of the Salvation of Souls, for by the end of August millions of souls will be saved through your efforts.

Remember, children, I Am present in your lives every day. Watching. Guiding. I love all of you. Remain loyal to My wishes to save tortured souls.

Jesus Christ

 

Thank you Jesus, for being present at our Prayer Group today.

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.

Today (27th August) we met a fellow Crusader who was alone in a nearby country who came to visit family. He had found us through our site and contact details. He wanted to meet us. We had been keeping in touch through email. Saturday was the only day available, and many of us could not attend. However, I just prayed that the Lord would send the people to our prayer meeting that He wanted to come (as I always do). There happened to be about 8 of us. Many co-incidences had happened to Crusader X,  even finding another crusader who happened to know of us (and was on my email list). This had occurred when he went looking for a church for Mass and Confession. He had left his Crusader prayer book on the seat whilst he went into confession. The Lord seems to direct us and puts us in touch with each other.

At the end of the prayer meeting and the readings, one of our group jumped up and told our Crusader friend that he would go home and form a prayer group. We assured him that even if there were only 2, Jesus would bring the people to him.

Below is a summary of our meeting today.

Prayer Group theme: General collection of mixed prayers with various themes.

Overview of Readings

1.Bible: John 21:9-14 – (The disciples had been fishing) they have a big catch of 153 fish.  When they returned to shore, Jesus had cooked them breakfast

2. 24th April, 2011 (Book of Truth) -“Convert others at every opportunity“; Jesus tells us of people’s reactions and how to deal with them.

3. 16th December, 2012  (Book of Truth)- “I bring hope. I bring Mercy. I bring Salvation” More advice from Jesus.

We had met to welcome a new crusader (disciple). The first reading was about the first disciples trying to catch fish, until Jesus told them how to do it. They caught 153 big ones (the number of Hail Marys in the Rosary (i.e. the original, Joyful Sorrowful and Glorious Mysteries when said in one go.) Jesus met them on the shore and cooked them breakfast. Likewise, we had lunch afterwards, as we always do, and Jesus provided for us, in the readings, instructions on what obstacles we would face as disciples, and how to deal with them. He tells us to convert others at every opportunity. We think the readings today were meant especially for our new crusader friend. He had never been to any type of Crusade Prayer meeting. Today he got the best instructions one could have – from the Master Himself.

 

The Readings

John 21:9-14

[9] As soon then as they came to land, they saw hot coals lying, and a fish laid thereon, and bread. [10] Jesus saith to them: Bring hither of the fishes which you have now caught.

[11] Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land, full of great fishes, one hundred and fifty-three. And although there were so many, the net was not broken. [12] Jesus saith to them: Come, and dine. And none of them who were at meat, durst ask him: Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord. [13] And Jesus cometh and taketh bread, and giveth them, and fish in like manner. [14] This is now the third time that Jesus was manifested to his disciples, after he was risen from the dead.

Convert others at every opportunity

Easter Sunday 24th April 2011

My dearly beloved daughter,

Today is significant in that my rising from the dead has fulfilled my promises to man, that by rising i will help lift all of you towards the light of heaven.
rise now, all of you, and come towards me and your own salvation.
my children, you must convert others at every opportunity.
the more you explain and the more you show those weak souls the love in your heart, then the final outcome will be achieved when you convert another soul. I will shower you with great blessings. This is a very special gift from me and represents an act of great mercy on your part.

Conversion, my children, will save souls. When a conversion takes place, this then spreads to those friends and acquaintances of the person who has been converted.Conversion spreads conversion. No matter if you are laughed at, or treated as if you are speaking nonsense. It takes much bravery on your part, my beloved loyal followers. but each time you stand up and explain my teachings to others, people will listen. While some may smile at you and appear not to take you seriously, deep down many will listen to what you have to say. When the Holy Spirit works through you during your work, the recipient will feel a tug at their heart. Yet they won’t know why. Then you will draw them closer.

Some people will be slow to respond. But be patient. They will begin to yield by degrees. First they will ask you a question. This will usually relate to whether something is right, or whether it is wrong. It will be then that the conversion takes root. Never give up spreading the truth of my teaching. This does not have to be done like a preacher. Rather it can be very subtle. Convert others in your everyday lives through ordinary conversation. This way people will be more receptive.

My children, you will feel shocked however, at other people’s reaction, especially those who are living their lives in denial and darkness. Their response will be aggressive and mocking in tone. You will be asked whether you really believe in such rubbish.Then you will be scolded and insulted. Your intelligence will be called into question. You will be accused of turning to religion because of personal difficulties. You will feel embarrassed from time to time and may find it hard to defend yourself. Stay silent in such situations.
Then simply ask questions from time to time. Ask such souls, “why do you feel like this”?The more questions you ask of them the more these people will begin to evaluate their own answers. You will not convince everyone of the truth. However, every attempt on your part will raise you up in my eyes.

Go now, my children. Convert in my name and you will be bestowed with many, many graces.
Your beloved Saviour
Jesus Christ

I bring hope. I bring Mercy. I bring Salvation

December 16, 2012

My dearly beloved daughter, it is important that My disciples do not cause fear in the hearts of their friends and families because of My Messages to you at this time.

I come to you all at this time to speak with you from Heaven in order to prepare you. I do this with love and joy in My Heart. I come to help those who believe in Me so that they will be ready to accept Me in the state of grace needed to reign with Me in My Kingdom.

I come also to plead with those who cannot understand the meaning of God’s Creation, especially those souls who use human reasoning to define everything in their lives. They believe only in what they can see or touch. These same souls will accept lies from those they believe are to be respected in their societies and nations. How easily they are fooled by the lies of man and how weak they are in that they reject the Truth of their Creation.

My task is to help you all. Not to threaten, but to draw you closer to Me so that you will receive comfort.

My Kingdom is your home. You must not feel any pressure to reject your family, so that you can unite your heart with Mine. Instead bring to Me your family through your prayers. Many will hurt you when you proclaim the Truth of My Word. But that is okay. Do not challenge them and try to force them against their will. I will take them into My Light of Protection when you recite Crusade Prayer (13) Prayer calling for Immunity.

I Am full of love for you. Those who believe in Me will be greatly comforted by My Second Coming. Those other souls can be saved by your prayers. This is why I prepare you now. It is to save all of you so that you can enjoy the New Heavens and the New Earth.

I bring hope. I bring Mercy. I bring salvation. I bring to a conclusion the final covenant, the final age, which will be the fulfilment of My Father’s Will.

Never fear Me for I Am your family, joined by My Flesh and Blood, by My Humanity, as well as by My Divinity.

Be at peace, My beloved followers. Rest on My Shoulder for My Love and Mercy is greater than any of you know. This is a time for rejoicing, not sorrow, for I have given you the Gift of Salvation. This Gift is for you as well as those who are lost. It is for everyone.

Your Beloved Jesus

 

“My God, My God, why have You abandoned Me?”

At our prayer group on Thursday 4th  August, one of the readings was about the Crucifixion of Christ and the Crucifixion of the Mystical Body of Christ. This reading reminded Donna of something –  a revelation she was once given to understand.

She said  ” Do you know what? I want to share something. I don’t know if I’ve told you before…?: My God, my God! Why have you forsaken me?’ – that doesn’t mean what you think it means. It means so much more. We don’t need to wonder what Jesus meant. We can know.

Imagine if I was dying and in agony. If I said aloud “Our Father Who art in heaven…“- you would know what I meant.

It’s a prayer and you would assume that I was praying that prayer, even if I did not finish the words out loud. You might even finish praying it for me…The same can be said of many common prayers we share; we only need two words or so to know what that person means and is praying.

Well, that’s what Jesus was doing. Just before He died, when He cried out those words. He wasn’t asking God a question.

He was praying a psalmand every Jew there, within earshot, would have known the words and would have known who He was quoting. They knew the end of it. It was a sign for them and for us.

You have to read the whole prayer to know what Jesus meant what He indicated or signified. It changes everything. It uses the words of the prophet Isaiah.  It’s in one of the psalms,” finished Donna.

I was thinking – “Which one? – There are 150 of them.” One of our other members immediately got a bible and opened it up and found it almost immediately! It was Psalm 22It is reproduced below. We know that the New Testament is the completion of the Covenant of the Old Testament.

Jesus was reciting one of David’s psalms, which quoted Isaiah. If you read to the end, we find that it is a prayer of Hope, and Faith and Victory. It shows Jesus to be the Messiah, Who has perfectly fulfilled the prophecies made by Isaiah.

 Psalm 22

2. My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?

Why so far from my call for help,

from my cries of anguish?

3.My God, I call by day, but You do not answer;

by night, but I have no relief.

4.Yet you are enthroned as the Holy One;

You are the glory of Israel.

5.In You our fathers trusted;

they trusted and You rescued them.

6.To You they cried out and they escaped;

in You they trusted and were not disappointed.

7. But I am a worm, not a man,

scorned by men, despised by the people.

8.All who see me mock me;

they curl their lips and jeer;

they shake their heads at me:

9.“He relied on the LORD—let Him deliver him;

if he loves him, let Him rescue him.”

10. For you drew me forth from the womb,

made me safe at my mother’s breasts.

11. Upon you I was thrust from the womb;

since my mother bore me you are my God.

12. Do not stay far from me,

for trouble is near,

and there is no one to help.

II

13. Many bulls surround me;

fierce bulls of Bashan encircle me.

14. They open their mouths against me,

lions that rend and roar.

15. Like water my life drains away;

all my bones are disjointed.

My heart has become like wax,

it melts away within me.

16. As dry as a potsherd is my throat;

my tongue cleaves to my palate;

you lay me in the dust of death

17. Dogs surround me;

a pack of evildoers closes in on me.

They have pierced my hands and my feet

18. I can count all my bones.

They stare at me and gloat;

19. they divide my garments among them;

for my clothing they cast lots.

20. But You, LORD, do not stay far off;

My strength, come quickly to help Me.

21. Deliver my soul from the sword,

my life from the grip of the dog.

22. Save me from the lion’s mouth,

my poor life from the horns of wild bulls.

III

23. Then I will proclaim your name to my brethren;

in the assembly I will praise you:

24. “You who fear the LORD, give praise!

All descendants of Jacob, give honor;

show reverence, all descendants of Israel!

25. For he has not spurned or disdained

the misery of this poor wretch,

Did not turn away from me,

but heard me when I cried out.

26. I will offer praise in the great assembly;

my vows I will fulfill before those who fear Him.

27. The poor * will eat their fill;

those who seek the LORD will offer praise.

May your hearts enjoy life forever!”

IV

28. All the ends of the earth

will remember and turn to the LORD;

All the families of nations

will bow low before Him.

29. For kingship belongs to the LORD,

the ruler over the nations.

30 * All who sleep in the earth

will bow low before God;

All who have gone down into the dust

will kneel in homage.

31.And I will live for the LORD;

my descendants will serve you.

32. The generation to come will be told of the Lord,

       that they may proclaim to a people yet unborn

       the deliverance You have brought.
