Pope Benedict Vs. Francis Part 4

AM+DG

The English Denzinger site (which was run by (20) priests, and which (strangely??) has not been active for a few years, was invaluable and priceless in terms of comparing everything Francis claimed to what authentic Church Teaching says.

The following is an example of one article I had saved. It is very long, so I will post just a few bits every day. The following continues from yesterday’s post.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++

Benedict XVI…

…judges Francis’ idea that Koran is a book of peace

 

  • There is no peace without justice

You know, as I do, that authentic peace is only possible when justice reigns. Our world is thirsting for peace and justice. (Benedict XVI. Address to the new ambassadors to the Holy See, December 18, 2008)

  • Peace is a heavenly gift and a divine grace that demands conforming human history to the divine order

Seen in this way, peace appears as a heavenly gift and a divine grace which demands at every level the exercise of the highest responsibility: that of conforming human history–in truth, justice, freedom and love–to the divine order. Whenever there is a loss of fidelity to the transcendent order, and a loss of respect for that ‘grammar’ of dialogue which is the universal moral law written on human hearts, whenever the integral development of the person and the protection of his fundamental rights are hindered or denied, whenever countless people are forced to endure intolerable injustices and inequalities, how can we hope that the good of peace will be realized? The essential elements which make up the truth of that good are missing. Saint Augustine described peace as tranquillitas Ordinis (De Civitate Dei, XIX, 13) the tranquillity of order. By this, he meant a situation which ultimately enables the truth about man to be fully respected and realized. (Benedict XVI. Message for the celebration of the XXXIX World Day of Peace, no. 4, January 1, 2006)

  • Peace also demands of everyone a personal response consistent with God’s plan – according to the ‘grammar’ written on human hearts

The transcendent ‘grammar’, that is to say the body of rules for individual action and the reciprocal relationships of persons in accordance with justice and solidarity, is inscribed on human consciences, in which the wise plan of God is reflected. As I recently had occasion to reaffirm: ‘we believe that at the beginning of everything is the Eternal Word, Reason and not Unreason’ (Homily at Regensburg, 12 September 2006). Peace is thus also a task demanding of everyone a personal response consistent with God’s plan. The criterion inspiring this response can only be respect for the ‘grammar’ written on human hearts by the divine Creator. (Benedict XVI. Message for the celebration of the XL World Day of Peace, January 1, 2007)

  • Recognition and respect for natural law: fundamental presupposition for authentic peace

Recognition and respect for natural law represents the foundation for a dialogue between the followers of the different religions and between believers and non-believers. As a great point of convergence, this is also a fundamental presupposition for authentic peace. (Benedict XVI. Message for the celebration of the XL World Day of Peace, January 1, 2007)

  • Peace on earth cannot be found without reconciliation with God

Peace on earth cannot be found without reconciliation with God, without harmony between Heaven and earth. (Benedict XVI. Address to the members of the Roman Curia, December 22. 2006)

  • Sin: a progressive rejection of peace

Mankind can overcome that progressive dimming and rejection of peace which is sin in all its forms. (Benedict XVI. Message for the celebration of the XLVI World Day of Peace, no. 3, January 1. 2013)

  • It is only through the Redemption that man can overcome the progressive rejection of peace, and be an authentic peacemaker

To become authentic peacemakers, it is fundamental to keep in mind our transcendent dimension and to enter into constant dialogue with God, the Father of mercy, whereby we implore the redemption achieved for us by his only-begotten Son. In this way mankind can overcome that progressive dimming and rejection of peace which is sin in all its forms: selfishness and violence, greed and the will to power and dominion, intolerance, hatred and unjust structures. (Benedict XVI. Message for the celebration of the XLVI World Day of Peace, no. 3, January 1. 2013)

  • True peace comes from Christ

True peace comes from Christ (cf. Jn 14:27). It cannot be compared with the peace that the world gives. It is not the fruit of negotiations and diplomatic agreements based on particular interests. It is the peace of a humanity reconciled with itself in God, a peace of which the Church is the sacrament. (Benedict XVI. Apostolic exhortation Africae munus, no. 30, November 30, 2011)

  • Wherever Christ is welcomed, islands of peace develop

Et erit iste pax’ – this will be peace, the Prophet Micah says (Mic 5:4) about the future ruler of Israel, whose birth in Bethlehem he announces. The Angels said to the shepherds grazing their flocks in the fields around Bethlehem: ‘on earth peace among men’, the expected One has arrived (Lk 2:14). He himself, Christ, the Lord, said to his disciples: ‘Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you’ (Jn 14:27). It is from these words that the liturgical greeting developed: ‘Peace be with you’. This peace that is communicated in the liturgy is Christ himself. He gives himself to us as peace, as reconciliation beyond all frontiers. Wherever he is welcomed, islands of peace develop. (Benedict XVI. Address to the Roman Curia, December 22, 2006)

  • Peace in this world always remains weak and fragile for it implies opening our hearts to God

We human beings would have liked Christ to banish all wars once and for all, to destroy weapons and establish universal peace. But we have to learn that peace cannot be attained only from the outside with structures, and that the attempt to establish it with violence leads only to ever new violence. We must learn that peace – as the Angel of Bethlehem said – is connected with eudokia, with the opening of our hearts to God. We must learn that peace can only exist if hatred and selfishness are overcome from within. The human being must be renewed from within, must become new and different. Thus, peace in this world always remains weak and fragile. We suffer from this. For this very reason we are called especially to let ourselves be penetrated within by God’s peace and to take his power into the world. All that was wrought in and through the Sacrament of Baptism must be fulfilled in our lives: the dying of the former self, hence, the rebirth of the new. And we will pray to the Lord insistently over and over again: Please move hearts! Make us new people! Help the reason of peace to overcome the irrationality of violence! Make us bearers of your peace! (Benedict XVI. Address to the Roman Curia, December 22, 2006)

  • Jesus builds the great new community of new men who place their will in his

The stable becomes a palace – and setting out from this starting-point, Jesus builds the great new community, whose key-word the angels sing at the hour of his birth: ‘Glory to God in the highest, and peace on earth to those whom he loves’ – those who place their will in his, in this way becoming men of God, new men, a new world. (Benedict XVI. Homily for the Solemnity of the Nativity of the Lord, December 25, 2007)

  • Christ is our true peace: in him there is but one family reconciled in love

‘Peace is not merely the absence of war, and it is not limited to maintaining a balance of powers between adversaries. Peace cannot be attained on earth without safeguarding the goods of persons, free communication among men, respect for the dignity of persons and peoples, and the assiduous practice of fraternity’. We Christians believe that Christ is our true peace: in him, by his Cross, God has reconciled the world to himself and has broken down the walls of division that separated us from one another (cf. Eph 2:14 – 18); in him, there is but one family, reconciled in love. (Benedict XVI. Message for the celebration of the XLV World Day of Peace, no. 5, January 1, 2012)

  • If peace is to be authentic and lasting it must be built on the bedrock of the truth about God and the truth about man

For her part, the Church, in fidelity to the mission she has received from her Founder, is committed to proclaiming everywhere ‘the Gospel of peace’. In the firm conviction that she offers an indispensable service to all those who strive to promote peace, she reminds everyone that, if peace is to be authentic and lasting, it must be built on the bedrock of the truth about God and the truth about man. This truth alone can create a sensitivity to justice and openness to love and solidarity, while encouraging everyone to work for a truly free and harmonious human family. The foundations of authentic peace rest on the truth about God and man. (Benedict XVI. Message for the celebration of the XXXIX World Day of Peace, no. 15, January 1, 2006)

  • Any authentic search for peace must begin with the realization that the problem of truth and untruth is the concern of every man and woman

Who and what, then, can prevent the coming of peace? Sacred Scripture, in its very first book, Genesis, points to the lie told at the very beginning of history by the animal with a forked tongue, whom the Evangelist John calls ‘the father of lies’ (Jn 8:44). Lying is also one of the sins spoken of in the final chapter of the last book of the Bible, Revelation, which bars liars from the heavenly Jerusalem: ‘outside are… all who love falsehood’ (Jn 22:15). Lying is linked to the tragedy of sin and its perverse consequences, which have had, and continue to have, devastating effects on the lives of individuals and nations. […] Any authentic search for peace must begin with the realization that the problem of truth and untruth is the concern of every man and woman; it is decisive for the peaceful future of our planet. (Benedict XVI. Message for the celebration of the XXXIX World Day of Peace, January 1, 2006)

  • A fundamental presupposition for authentic peace: respect for the Natural Law– to carry out the divine plan inscribed in the nature of human beings

From this standpoint, the norms of the natural law should not be viewed as externally imposed decrees, as restraints upon human freedom. Rather, they should be welcomed as a call to carry out faithfully the universal divine plan inscribed in the nature of human beings. Guided by these norms, all peoples – within their respective cultures – can draw near to the greatest mystery, which is the mystery of God. Today too, recognition and respect for natural law represents the foundation for a dialogue between the followers of the different religions and between believers and non-believers. As a great point of convergence, this is also a fundamental presupposition for authentic peace. (Benedict XVI. Message for the celebration of the XL World Day of Peace, January 1, 2007)

  • Violence is incompatible with the nature of God and the nature of the soul

I was reminded of all this recently, when I read the edition by Professor Theodore Khoury (Münster) of part of the dialogue carried on – perhaps in 1391 in the winter barracks near Ankara – by the erudite Byzantine emperor Manuel II Paleologus and an educated Persian on the subject of Christianity and Islam, and the truth of both. […] The dialogue ranges widely over the structures of faith contained in the Bible and in the Qur’an, and deals especially with the image of God and of man, while necessarily returning repeatedly to the relationship between – as they were called – three ‘Laws’ or ‘rules of life’: the Old Testament, the New Testament and the Qur’an. […] In the seventh conversation (διάλεξις – controversy) edited by Professor Khoury, the emperor touches on the theme of the holy war. The emperor must have known that surah 2, 256 reads: ‘There is no compulsion in religion’. According to some of the experts, this is probably one of the suras of the early period, when Mohammed was still powerless and under threat. But naturally the emperor also knew the instructions, developed later and recorded in the Qur’an, concerning holy war. Without descending to details, such as the difference in treatment accorded to those who have the ‘Book’ and the ‘infidels’, he addresses his interlocutor with a startling brusqueness, a brusqueness that we find unacceptable, on the central question about the relationship between religion and violence in general, saying: ‘Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.’ The emperor, after having expressed himself so forcefully, goes on to explain in detail the reasons why spreading the faith through violence is something unreasonable. Violence is incompatible with the nature of God and the nature of the soul. ‘God’, he says, ‘is not pleased by blood – and not acting reasonably (σὺν λόγω) is contrary to God’s nature. Faith is born of the soul, not the body. Whoever would lead someone to faith needs the ability to speak well and to reason properly, without violence and threats… To convince a reasonable soul, one does not need a strong arm, or weapons of any kind, or any other means of threatening a person with death…’. The decisive statement in this argument against violent conversion is this; not to act in accordance with reason is contrary to God’s nature. The editor, Theodore Khoury, observes: For the emperor, as a Byzantine shaped by Greek philosophy, this statement is self-evident. But for Muslim teaching, God is absolutely transcendent. His will is not bound up with any of our categories, even that of rationality. Here Khoury quotes a work of the noted French Islamist R. Arnaldez, who points out that Ibn Hazm went so far as to state that God is not bound even by his own word, and that nothing would oblige him to reveal the truth to us. Were it God’s will, we would even have to practice idolatry. (Benedict XVI. Address in the University of Regensburg, September 12, 2006)

  • Sufferings of the Christian community in Iraq

Sadly, the year now ending has again been marked by persecution, discrimination, terrible acts of violence and religious intolerance. My thoughts turn in a special way to the beloved country of Iraq, which continues to be a theatre of violence and strife as it makes its way towards a future of stability and reconciliation. I think of the recent sufferings of the Christian community, and in particular the reprehensible attack on the Syro-Catholic Cathedral of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Baghdad, where on 31 October two priests and over fifty faithful were killed as they gathered for the celebration of Holy Mass. In the days that followed, other attacks ensued, even on private homes, spreading fear within the Christian community and a desire on the part of many to emigrate in search of a better life. I assure them of my own closeness and that of the entire Church, a closeness which found concrete expression in the recent Special Assembly for the Middle East of the Synod of Bishops. The Synod encouraged the Catholic communities in Iraq and throughout the Middle East to live in communion and to continue to offer a courageous witness of faith in those lands. (Benedict XVI. Message for the celebration of the XLIV World Day of Peace, no. 1, January 1, 2011)

  • Numerous conflicts causing bloodshed in our human family, beginning with that privileged region in God’s plan, the Middle East

Consequently, if the glorification of God and earthly peace are closely linked, it seems evident that peace is both God’s gift and a human task, one which demands our free and conscious response. For this reason, I wished my annual Message for the World Day of Peace to bear the title: Blessed are the Peacemakers. Civil and political authorities before all others have a grave responsibility to work for peace. They are the first called to resolve the numerous conflicts causing bloodshed in our human family, beginning with that privileged region in God’s plan, the Middle East. I think first and foremost of Syria, torn apart by endless slaughter and the scene of dreadful suffering among its civilian population. I renew my appeal for a ceasefire and the inauguration as quickly as possible of a constructive dialogue aimed at putting an end to a conflict which will know no victors but only vanquished if it continues, leaving behind it nothing but a field of ruins. Your Excellencies, allow me to ask you to continue to make your Governments aware of this, so that essential aid will urgently be made available to face this grave humanitarian situation. I now turn with deep concern towards the Holy Land. Following Palestine’s recognition as a Non-Member Observer State of the United Nations, I again express the hope that, with the support of the international community, Israelis and Palestinians will commit themselves to peaceful coexistence within the framework of two sovereign states, where respect for justice and the legitimate aspirations of the two peoples will be preserved and guaranteed. Jerusalem, become what your name signifies! A city of peace and not of division; a prophecy of the Kingdom of God and not a byword for instability and opposition!

As I turn my thoughts towards the beloved Iraqi people, I express my hope that they will pursue the path of reconciliation in order to arrive at the stability for which they long.

In Lebanon, where last September I met the various groups which make up society, may the many religious traditions there be cultivated by all as a true treasure for the country and for the whole region, and may Christians offer an effective witness for the building of a future of peace, together with all men and women of good will!

In North Africa too, cooperation between all the members of society is of primary concern, and each must be guaranteed full citizenship, the liberty publicly to profess their religion and the ability to contribute to the common good. I assure all Egyptians of my closeness and my prayers at this time when new institutions are being set in place.

Turning to sub-Saharan Africa, I encourage the efforts being made to build peace, especially in those places where the wounds of war remain open and where their grave humanitarian consequences are being felt. I think particularly of the Horn of Africa, and the East of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where new of acts of violence have erupted, forcing many people to abandon their homes, families and surroundings. Nor can I fail to mention other threats looming on the horizon. Nigeria is regularly the scene of terrorist attacks which reap victims above all among the Christian faithful gathered in prayer, as if hatred intended to turn temples of prayer and peace into places of fear and division. I was deeply saddened to learn that, even in the days when we celebrated Christmas, some Christians were barbarously put to death. Mali is also torn by violence and marked by a profound institutional and social crisis, one which calls for the effective attention of the international community. In the Central African Republic, I hope that the talks announced as taking place shortly will restore stability and spare the people from reliving the throes of civil war. (Benedict XVI. Address to the members of the Diplomatic Corps accredited to the Holy See, January 7, 2013)

Readings

Bible: Psalms 97 & 98

Book of Truth: 13 Nov. 2014

Book of Truth: 2 Aug. 2012

Today, the Feast of the Assumption, one of us was recounting how, after Mass, a few of the men were gathered together and speaking of what is happening in the church and the world. (i.e. the “crucifixion” of the Church.) What started it was the horrendous extreme abortion bill currently before our Parliament and also other world and local events. Some of these people were previously sceptics as regarding all these things, but they are beginning to join the dots. The end of their conversation even mentioned the “End times” and the  “New Jerusalem”. Well, as has happened many times before, Jesus had an answer for us. The readings seem to emphasize what we need to know.

Thank you Jesus for always being present at our Prayer group.

Bible Reading

Psalm 97: Divine Ruler of All

The LORD is king; let the earth rejoice; let the many islands be glad.

2 Cloud and darkness surround him; justice and right are the foundation of his throne.3 Fire goes before him,consuming his foes on every side.

4 His lightning illumines the world; the earth sees and trembles. 5 The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, before the Lord of all the earth.

6 The heavens proclaim his justice; all peoples see his glory.

7 All who serve idols are put to shame, who glory in worthless things; all gods bow down before him.8 Zion hears and is glad,and the daughters of Judah rejoice because of your judgments, O LORD.

9 For you, LORD, are the Most High over all the earth, exalted far above all gods. 10 You who love the LORD, hate evil, he protects the souls of the faithful, rescues them from the hand of the wicked.

11 Light dawns for the just, and gladness for the honest of heart.

12 Rejoice in the LORD, you just, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

Psalm 98: Coming of God

Sing a new song to the LORD, for he has done marvelous deeds. His right hand and holy arm have won the victory.

2 The LORD has made his victory known; has revealed his triumph in the sight of the nations,3 He has remembered his mercy and faithfulness toward the house of Israel. All the ends of the earth have seen the victory of our God.

4 Shout with joy to the LORD, all the earth;break into song; sing praise. 5 Sing praise to the LORD with the lyre, with the lyre and melodious song.6 With trumpets and the sound of the horn shout with joy to the King, the LORD.

7 Let the sea and what fills it resound,the world and those who dwell there. 8 Let the rivers clap their hands, the mountains shout with them for joy,

9 Before the LORD who comes, who comes to govern the earth, To govern the world with justice and the peoples with fairness.

Readings from the Book of Truth

I was deemed to be a wicked man and a false prophet and so they scourged Me

13 November 2014 @ 11:10am

My dearly beloved daughter, I reveal to you today one of the greatest mysteries of the end times.

The Crucifixion and the darkness covering the world.

The sequence of events leading up to the last day is akin to My Crucifixion, which will be re-enacted in every stage, right up to the day when I will come again to salvage the world.

When I was in the Garden of Gethsemane, I was isolated, alone and grief-stricken, because very few believed that I spoke the Truth.  My love for My Father sustained Me, but My love for humanity meant that the torment which I endured, including mental and physical torture at the hands of satan, was accepted by Me, albeit with tremendous effort.

How I suffered in that Garden.  How I begged My Father for relief.  How heartbroken I was when the evil one showed Me how the world would end.  He taunted Me, laughed at Me, spat at Me and scoffed, when he showed Me the souls of My enemies, who would, one day, tell the world that they served My Church.  This was like being shown My beloved apostles, denounce Me and then pledge their allegiance to satan. He showed Me the souls of the faithful, whose voices would be deemed to be that of radical bigots and who would be accused of terrible crimes.  I saw those who said that they represented Me, persecute the prophets and the visionaries, as well as those who would seek their destruction.  I had to endure great darkness when I saw the world, which I once inhabited, become not only blind as to who I am, but who would never have been told about Me.

I was thrown to the ground, My Face pressed into the soil, kicked, whipped and My clothes torn off by satan.  He tormented Me, beyond My human capacity and under extreme endurance of the physical body. Despite this, I was given the strength to continue to face My inevitable Crucifixion, which terrified Me.  My love for man, however, superseded My human fear.

My sacred servants, who will refuse to denounce Me, will also suffer a similar isolation. They will be disgraced and cast aside.  Their isolation, will not be condemned by My Church, because of fear within it.

When I was scourged, those who carried out the most cruel and vile acts upon My Body rejoiced.  I was deemed to be a wicked man and a false prophet and so they scourged Me.
They boasted of their holiness, their righteousness and their knowledge of Holy Scriptures, while they vilified My Body. They failed to accept the prophecy of all that their Messiah would come to save them. Those who will proclaim My Second Coming will endure the same treatment.

When they stripped Me naked, they wanted to humiliate Me further and so they dressed Me in a red rag that barely covered Me, to further desecrate My Body.  But, when they plunged thorns, like needles, into My Head, they declared that the Son of Man was an imposter and therefore not worthy of acceptance. They tore My Eye out of its socket, but the pain was inconsequential, compared with their declaration, that I was not accepted as the Saviour of God’s children.

All of these things are to be re-enacted soon, when I, Jesus Christ, as Head of My Church, will be discarded and My Crown taken away from Me.  A false leader, the antichrist, will be substituted as My Head, and unlike the Sacrificial Lamb, he will wear a glittering crown of gold. Beneath this façade will lie a rotten core, and along with the lies, falsities, blasphemies and heresies that will pour from his mouth, he will deliver everything as if it were like the honey, which pours from the honeybee’s hive.  Be under no illusion, the beast will have a beautiful appearance, his voice soothing, his demeanour grand. He will be handsome and appealing, but out of his mouth will pour venom that will poison your soul.

When I carried My Cross, I could not do this on My own.  It was so heavy that I could only take one step at a time and walk very slowly.  My Body was torn in many places and because of the blood loss I fainted many times, so weak was I.  I was blinded in one eye and the  thorns on My Head meant that the Blood, which poured from My Wounds, had to be continually wiped away by those who walked alongside Me.  Otherwise, I would never have been able to take another step forward.

The same will be true of My Remnant Church, the last stable of My Body. They will march, just like I did, with a heavy cross, but despite the pain, the abuse, the suffering and the bloodshed, they will endure until the end.  For My Precious Blood will flow over their souls in tandem with My Own Sorrow – My Own Crucifixion.  And, on the day, when they will no longer hold the daily Sacrifices of the Mass, My Presence will become extinct.  When the day arrives for My Body – My Church on earth – to be finally plundered, crucified and desecrated, all will change forever.

It is My Body, My church, while still alive in the world, which sustains life.  But when it is destroyed, life, as you know it, will be over. When My Church is betrayed, sacrificed and discarded, just like My Crucifixion, this will mark the end of time.

Your Jesus

 

God the Father: Just as My Son was crucified so, too, will His Church on earth be crucified.

2 August 2012 @ 10:06pm

My dearest daughter, the trial of My Son’s Church on earth has already commenced.

The scourging, the persecution is about to begin.

Just as My Son was crucified so, too, will His Church on earth be crucified.

The trial is taking place now.

My Son was sent to save humanity from the fires of Hell.

His Death on the Cross, a terrible cruel atrocity, was permitted by Me as a means to offer My children a future.

My Son’s Body became His Church on earth. His priests and sacred servants took the place of His apostles.

Now, as He returns again to redeem mankind and claim My precious children, so that they can enter My Paradise, history will be repeated.

My Son preached the Truth and he gathered many people who followed His teachings who did not doubt His Word.

Then He was betrayed by those close to Him and devoted to Him within His ranks.

His Church, the Catholic Church, was also betrayed within its own corridors.

The temptation by Satan brought this about and a great evil was responsible for the demise of My Son.

In His Church today its demise commenced some time ago. As with My Son, many followers loyal to the Holy Word laid down by Me, deserted Him.

Then began the trial where My Son was accused of heresy. So too has My Son’s Church on earth suffered the same fate.

Through the wicked amongst them, who committed grave offenses against humanity, many loyal followers deserted the Church.

In turn they deserted My Son and discarded His teachings.

The trial of My Son’s Church on earth has rendered its priests silent when it comes to defending My Son’s teachings.

They are afraid of offending those  who deny My Son because of the sins of those amongst them.

My Son’s Church now faces the greatest trial of all not seen since the Crucifixion of My Beloved Son.

His Church is being mocked unmercifully, not just by its enemies from outside but from its enemies within.

The Crown of Thorns will now be placed on the Head of My Son’s Church and few of his followers will stand by him.

Just as My Son’s apostles, with the exception of John, deserted Him during His trial and execution so, too, will those in high places within the Vatican desert My Holy Vicar.

He will, as Head of the Catholic Church, be forced to walk a terrible path in disgrace through no fault of his own.

While he will be whipped, sneered at and made to look foolish it is not he they will vent their rage at. It will be against the Truth of the Church, the Christian Church, formed because of My Son’s Sacrifice that they will pour out their hatred upon.

Christianity will be scourged in every crevice, in every nation, in every place of worship until it is weak with exhaustion.

As it will be led up the road to Calvary, just as My Son was led, it will be tied and secured with ropes to render it impossible to escape the torment.

Then, as it climbs the hill, it will be pelted with stones, spat upon and jeered at all the way to the top.

Then it will be nailed to the Cross.

Little sympathy will be shown for it by those who blame the Church for its sins against the innocent when they will condemn the Head of the Church, My Son.

They will blame Him for the sins of others caused by the temptation of Satan.

When they have nailed My Son’s Church to the Cross they will send hundreds of guards, just like the six hundred soldiers who stood on Calvary to ensure that not one morsel of Flesh escapes without punishment.

Not one servant of His Church, who proclaim loyalty to it, will be allowed to escape.

When the Church has been crucified, they will ensure that it is starved of food and water until its dying breath.

All its disciples, just as it was with My Son’s apostles, will be nowhere to be seen.

They will go into hiding for fear of reprisals.

In what will seem to be its dying breath, all will become silent until the cheer of those who crucified the Church will deafen the entire world with its false doctrine.

The voice of the new head of the church, the imposter, the False Prophet, will ring out.

All will fall in thanksgiving to Me, God the Most High, with relief. For this will seem to represent a new beginning.

It will be then that My Son’s Presence will no longer grace the altars within this church for this cannot be.

It will be then that My Hand, in chastisement, will fall in punishment.

This is when the Battle of Armageddon will begin.

This is when I will come, through My Son, to save souls.

Do not deny this prophecy.

Do not hide behind false securities for this day must come.

The Crucifixion of My Son’s Church must come about because of the Final Covenant.

But then the Glorious Resurrection of the Church, the New Jerusalem, will wipe out all the tears, all the suffering and then the New Era will come.

Trust in My Son at all times.

 

Never fear for I am your Father and I will come to renew the earth and gather all of My children in this final miracle foretold in the Book of Daniel.

Do not reject My Divine intervention for I speak the Truth.

My Father’s punishments have begun and the world will witness many more ecological upheavals

November 12, 2013 @ 3:52pm

My dearly beloved daughter, it is a mistake to believe that God would not mete out His Justice in the world at this time. My Father’s punishments have begunand the world will witness many more ecological upheavals as the purification of the Earth begins.

The preparations are now underway and soon the enemies of God will be weeded out and punished, for they will never turn and ask for My Mercy. My Father’s Anger is great and woe to those who defy the Word of God, for they will be felled and trampled upon,as thefinal cleansing of the Earth will clash with the infestation of the evil one – all at the same time.

When you see nature’s elements react fiercely, you will know that the Hand of Justice has fallen. The pride of man, his self-obsession and his belief in his own flawed intelligence in spiritual matters, have brought upon the human racethe outpouring of fire from the four bowls upon the four corners of the Earth.

You have ignored the warningsand so the battle to destroy sin has well and truly commenced.

Jesus Christ

The lords of the Philistines came up to her and said, “Trick him and find out where he gets his great strength, and how we may overcome and bind him so as to make him helpless. Then for our part, we will each give you eleven hundred pieces of silver.”

So Delilah said to Samson, “Tell me where you get your great strength and how you may be bound so as to be made helpless.” “If they bind me with seven fresh bowstrings that have not dried,” Samson answered her, “I shall grow weaker and be like anyone else.” So the lords of the Philistines brought her seven fresh bowstrings that had not dried, and she bound him with them. She had men lying in wait in the room, and she said to him, “The Philistines are upon you, Samson!” But he snapped the bowstrings as a thread of tow is snapped by a whiff of flame; and his strength remained unexplained.

10 Delilah said to Samson, “You have mocked me and told me lies. Now tell me how you may be bound.” 11“If they bind me tight with new ropes, with which no work has been done,” he answered her, “I shall grow weaker and be like anyone else.” 12 So Delilah took new ropes and bound him with them. Then she said to him, “The Philistines are upon you, Samson!” For there were men lying in wait in the room. But he snapped the ropes off his arms like thread.

13 Delilah said to Samson again, “Up to now you have mocked me and told me lies. Tell me how you may be bound.” He said to her, “If you weave the seven locks of my hair into the web and fasten them with the pin, I shall grow weaker and be like anyone else.” 14 So when he went to bed, Delilah took the seven locks of his hair and wove them into the web, and fastened them with the pin. Then she said, “The Philistines are upon you, Samson!” Awakening from his sleep, he pulled out both the loom and the web.

15 Then she said to him, “How can you say ‘I love you’ when your heart is not mine? Three times already you have mocked me, and not told me where you get your great strength!” 16 She pressed him continually and pestered him till he was deathly weary of it. 17 So he told her all that was in his heart and said, “No razor has touched my head, for I have been a nazirite for God from my mother’s womb. If I am shaved, my strength will leave me, and I shall grow weaker and be like anyone else.” 18 When Delilah realized that he had told her all that was in his heart, she summoned the lords of the Philistines, saying, “Come up this time, for he has told me all that is in his heart.” So the lords of the Philistines came to her and brought the money with them. 19 She put him to sleep on her lap, and called for a man who shaved off the seven locks of his hair. He immediately became helpless, for his strength had left him. 20 When she said “The Philistines are upon you, Samson!” he woke from his sleep and thought, “I will go out as I have done time and again and shake myself free.” He did not realize that the LORD had left him. 21 But the Philistines seized him and gouged out his eyes. Then they brought him down to Gaza and bound him with bronze fetters, and he was put to grinding grain in the prison. 22 But the hair of his head began to grow as soon as it was shaved.

Brief comment on the Bible reading: (Prayer group)

Tells the story of Samson (God’s chosen race) and the enemy (Delilah). The enemy pestered and plotted against Samson continually until Samsonwas tired and weary and, in a moment of weakness, told the enemy what they wanted to know. He was persecuted (eyes gouged out) and imprisoned. But his hair ( the source of his strength) started to regrow. The Christian remnant today will also be similarly pestered and persecuted when we let our guard down. But our strength (Faith in the Lord) will regrow – so that we can fight another day.

 

Readings from the Book of Truth

My Justice will befall all those who prevent the Holy Word of God from being made known in the world

June 27, 2013 @ 11:20pm

My dearly beloved daughter, do not allow My Revelations to cause you grief or fear. You are being guided and even when the suffering becomes intolerable, please remember My Words.

My Father promised, through the prophets of old, that He would send the final prophet, the final messenger. No matter how fearful this may be or how terrified this makes you feel, know that it is by this act that the Final Covenant of God can be brought to fruition.

I tell you now, fear those of you who insult the Word of God. Cast your eyes down and cover them with your hands, particularly those of you who spit in My Face, at this time, because of these, My Messages of Reconciliation. You are not worthy to stand in My Presence. You who mock Me now will fret and continue to fret until the Great Day, for you will have lost Me the souls I so desire.

To My sacred servants, who sneer at My intervention, through these Messages, your day will come when I will ask you this. While you spent so much of your time denying My True Voice, how many souls have you sent to Me? And how many have you turned away from Me by those acts, by which I will Judge you?

Those among you, who shout blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, know that before the Great Day, and as a sign to all, you will be struck down. Not one word will escape from your lips and by this deed, you will be known amongst your flock – the same flock you told to ignore these Messages, for they do not come from God. On that day, your followers will know the Truth and you will fall before Me. I make no apology for this warning. If you defile the Word of the Holy Spirit, I will cut you off from Me and there will be terrible cries by you and all those you will bring with you into the wilderness.

My Justice will befall all those who prevent the Holy Word of God from being made known in the world. Theirs will be the worst punishment, for the pain they will experience will be worse than those in the lowest level of Purgatory. Your wickedness shocks many good innocent souls, who are faithful to My Church on Earth. Your cruelty, which will be revealed in time, will be seen by many and then your true allegiance to the Word of God will be finally tested. Then you will stand before Me on the Great Day when I come to reclaim all of God’s children – when I come to free them from exile and take them to their final home of Love and Peace into the New Era of My New Paradise. This is when Heaven and Earth become one.

Your Saviour

Jesus Christ

The Fire of the Holy Spirit will be felt in the hearts of everyone

December 9, 2012 @ 7:00pm

My dearly beloved daughter, it is My desire, not to frighten My followers, but rather, to demonstrate the Love and Compassion which I hold in My Heart for every man, woman and child.

It is because of My Love for every one of God’s children, including those who defy the Word of God, that I wish to cover them with My Flame of Mercy.

Be prepared, all of you, for soon you will witness the Power of God and His Divine Intervention in the world, when He will stop all that is, for a period of fifteen minutes.

The Fire of the Holy Spirit will be felt in the hearts of everyone.

For those who are in a state of grace, it will be a feeling of joy, love and compassion for Me, your Jesus.

For those in a state of venial sin, you will feel the pain of Purgatory, but you will soon be purified and then you will feel a deep peace and love within your hearts for Me.

For those of you in mortal sin, you will experience the wretchedness and pain as if you have been plunged into the fires of Hell.

Some of you, in this state of sin, will beg for My forgiveness and favour to stop your internal suffering. This I will grant to you if you can find true remorse in your heart and accept that your sins cause Me grievous hurt and pain for they insult God.

Then there will be those poor unfortunate souls who will spit at Me, fight with Me and then turn their backs. The terror, they will feel, will be because their souls are infested by Satan.

They will not be able to stand the pain when they witness My Light and they will run into the embrace of the evil one whose darkness brings them comfort.

Finally there will be those who will die instantly because of the shock they will experience. Please pray for these souls every day, for your prayers will gain for them entrance to My Kingdom.

This is one of the greatest miracles ever accorded to God’s children.

My Revelation to you, during this event, will wake you up to the fact that My Promise, to come back to save the human race so they can inherit the Glorious Life ahead, will soon be realised.

Your Jesus

JTM Prayer Meeting Thursday 24th September, 2015

Today’s Crusade Prayer Theme: Special Graces

Readings are chosen at random.

We had a visitor today – the son of a prayer group member, for whom we have been praying and trying to help. See comment at the end of this post.

Why God, the Eternal Father, is sending new prophets into the world

13 May 2011

My dearly beloved daughter, for the doubters, especially My sacred servants, who may dismiss My Word through these Messages, this is what I would like to say to them. Increase your faith in Me by acknowledging that My Word was given to the world not only during My time on Earth, but through the power of the Holy Spirit after that.

Since the beginning of time, God, My Eternal Father, has communicated to mankind through the prophets; in this way the Teachings of the Truth were made known to man to ensure that their faith remained strong. Other revelations and lessons in the Truth were also given to mankind through the Apostles, other devout disciples and through the prophet, John the Evangelist. After that My Word, My Teachings and everything that man needed to bring him the salvation he needs was in order. Now that the world is facing the biggest shift in its history, God, My Eternal Father, has sent new prophets to the world. These prophets, make no mistake, do not bring you new teachings, for that is not necessary. Instead they are being sent for three reasons.

The first is to remind mankind of the Truth contained in the Book of Revelation. The second is to make man alert to the times he is living in so that he can rekindle his faith. The third is to help spread conversion so that My followers can form the biggest army of all in order to save souls. I am communicating through this prophet and others, so that My Word is heard in every corner of the world.

Remember My absolute love and compassion
Listen carefully to all these Messages, which not only proclaim My Word as you know it, but, which reveal to you My absolute love and compassion for every single one of you. Remember too, My Great Mercy. All sinners will be forgiven once they ask for redemption.

Importance of the Rosary and Divine Mercy
While ecological disasters will occur, please remember that prayer including the recital of the Rosary and the Divine Mercy will help avert much of it. Remember, My cherished children, that you who believe in Me and My Eternal Father and who follow My instructions have nothing to fear. Also let Me remind you that because of the two great acts of Mercy being given to you – the gift of the Holy Spirit, which burst upon the entire world a few days ago and the Great Warning, millions will be converted to the Truth. This will be a great miracle, and one which will bring joy to the multitudes.

The persecution by the red dragon and those not of God
While Satan will rise through his poor, misguided followers whom he pulls away from Me – their only hope of eternal salvation – this will be for just a short period. It will, I must warn you though, be a frightening period of persecution headed by the red dragon and those political entities, not of God. Through prayer and the sacraments you will find the strength to persevere during these trials. All of these events have been foretold and must come to pass, so that evil can be finally stamped out in the world. It is necessary, therefore, that this purification and series of chastisements take place; because only then will the world be ready for the New Paradise on Earth. Never ignore My calling.
It is only when you see the prophecies revealed to you by My chosen messengers begin to materialize that you will know for sure that it is I who speaks with you.
Your Divine Saviour
Jesus Christ

Despite My Divinity, I feel sickened by and disgusted with the sins of man

14 January 2013
My dearly beloved daughter, the time for preparation for The Warning is short.
This is a time when, no matter how painful the persecution is, you must ignore everything except my holy word.
As the preparations begin, let no one stop you, My beloved followers, as you prepare your souls and pray for those who will die in mortal sin during The Warning.
You, my followers and My sacred Servants, will endure, now, the pain I feel, as I look down upon wretched sinners.
Despite my Divinity, I feel sickened by, and disgusted with, the sins of man, as they are paraded before my eyes.
Their arrogance, the insolence and the pride, demonstrated by these sinners, emulate, exactly, the traits of Satan and his demons.
These same evil spirits have devoured the souls of God’s children, so that they no longer seem like the children they once were, when they took their first breath.
So stuffed with pride, and convinced of their own invincibility, are they, that they are no longer capable of allowing the spirit of God to touch their souls.
This is why they need your prayers.
I bless you with the grace to save these souls and you must, for my sake, help me to help them.
Not content in satisfying his own lusts to feed his bodily desires, man then feels he must interfere with my creation.
He then takes steps where he tries, not only to emulate the power of God, when it comes to the creation of human life and the taking of human life, he thinks he has the power to replace the existence of God.
He believes now in his own Divinity, which is nothing but a lie placed within his soul by Satan, to whom he has pledged his allegiance.
These steps, which man now takes, go beyond the boundaries permitted by God.
Now that the Churches of God are to be besieged by the spirit of evil, from enemies and imposters, the punishment will finally descend upon the Earth.
My Father’s power will be witnessed and his punishment will be severe.
It will shock even the most arrogant sinner, who will be in no doubt whose hand has fallen upon the Earth.
My Father will do this in order to rid the Earth of wickedness, while enabling, at the same time, the growth of his army of loyal followers who will help in the salvation of souls.
Sin has damaged the Earth you walk on and it can be seen in disease, pollution and the corruption among your governments.
The stain of sin covers the world, so that it has become a disgusting and vile thing in the eyes of My Father.
He, who created the world as a place where he could nurture his family, is heartbroken.
My Father is also angry and the scales of justice have now tipped.
His punishment cannot be stopped where it has become necessary.
Help your brothers and sisters, especially those who have created laws which interfere with those created by God, the Most High.
You must do this through the Crusade Prayers.
Be strong.
Be brave.
Be hopeful and fear nothing, if you love me.
Your Jesus

Douay Rheims Bible: Psalm 18

[1] Unto the end. A psalm for David. [2] The heavens shew forth the glory of God, and the firmament declareth the work of his hands. [3] Day to day uttereth speech, and night to night sheweth knowledge. [4] There are no speeches nor languages, where their voices are not heard. [5] Their sound hath gone forth into all the earth: and their words unto the ends of the world.

[6] He hath set his tabernacle in the sun: and he, as a bridegroom coming out of his bride chamber, Hath rejoiced as a giant to run the way: [7] His going out is from the end of heaven, And his circuit even to the end thereof: and there is no one that can hide himself from his heat. [8] The law of the Lord is unspotted, converting souls: the testimony of the Lord is faithful, giving wisdom to little ones. [9] The justices of the Lord are right, rejoicing hearts: the commandment of the Lord is lightsome, enlightening the eyes. [10] The fear of the Lord is holy, enduring for ever and ever: the judgments of the Lord are true, justified in themselves.

[11] More to be desired than gold and many precious stones: and sweeter than honey and the honeycomb. [12] For thy servant keepeth them, and in keeping them there is a great reward. [13] Who can understand sins? from my secret ones cleanse me, O Lord: [14] And from those of others spare thy servant. If they shall have no dominion over me, then shall I be without spot: and I shall be cleansed from the greatest sin. [15] And the words of my mouth shall be such as may please: and the meditation of my heart always in thy sight. O Lord, my helper, and my redeemer.

Wrong will be seen as right and right will be seen as wrong

6 March 2014
My dearly beloved daughter, when people try to encourage others to sin, they do this in various ways, which may not seem apparent.
The temptation to sin is a seductive one and the victim will always find it difficult to pull away.
In the case of theft, the sinner will be attracted to the grand prize, which will be his, should he agree to steal.
In the case of physical assault and bodily harm inflicted on another, the victim will be seduced by hatred, presented to him as being a good thing.
He will be convinced that he is simply involved in a punishment, which is necessary, in the name of justice.
In other cases, the victim will be drawn into committing sin and will see nothing wrong with it, because the allure will be so attractive.
Sin and the temptation to engage in the act will always be presented as being a good thing, harmless, and in many cases will be perceived as being right.
Wrong will be seen as right and right will be seen as wrong.
Every thing Satan is involved with, and particularly when he tempts man, with every conceivable reason, to turn his back on God, will be back to front.
Everywhere Satan is present there will be confusion.
Nothing will be as it should be.
Nothing good can come from his infestation.
Souls who participate in his schemes will, during and after the sin has been committed, suffer from a deep unsettling conscience.
The important lesson here is to avoid situations where you are faced with temptation.
To do this, you must pray for the strength to remain in a state of grace.
Let no man ever believe he has enough will power to withstand the pressures placed upon him by the spirit of evil.
When you believe this, you will fall suddenly and unexpectedly.
You must remain alert, every minute of every day, for you never know when the evil one is at work.
He is very cunning and very careful.
For many, they have no idea how Satan works, but one thing is clear.
He will bring you nothing but misery and sorrow.
You must, therefore, pray each day the prayer to Saint Michael.
Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray and do thou o prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into Hell Satan and all the evil spirits who roam the world seeking the ruin of souls.
Amen.
Satan and every demon, who roam the Earth, are working, very hard, to take you away from me at this time – more than any other time since I walked the Earth.
You must keep your eyes on me and listen to me, so that I can continue to protect you.
Your Jesus

The Power of the Crusade Prayers and the Messages:

Once more, God in His benevolence has picked readings for us which explain the theme that we prayed for today. Most of all, through these readings and these prayers, a most amazing thing happened. The visitor who joined us, and for whom we had been praying and trying to help in his unbelief and onslaught against the Faith, declared at the end of the prayer group that each word was meant for him. God worked quietly on him during our prayers. We will post his story as soon as we are able. Look for it under “Signs and Wonders”.
These prayers are so powerful – as has been shown to us many times.
Praise be to God!

Archbishop Anthony Fisher keeps up the pressure

As mentioned in previous post, Archbishop Anthony Fisher O.P. delivered a lecture on 2nd July at St Mary’s Cathedral College Hall. His topic was

“Same-Sex ‘Marriage’: Evolution or Deconstruction of Marriage and the Family?” Defence of the Faith Lecture, Order of Malta NSW Branch
Picture1

His introduction sums up the stance he took, which was to convince everybody, not just those with Faith. He emphasis shows his viewpoint – that it is not “a done deal” – that we must fight, and fighting he is. See previous blog with details.

“The campaign to redefine marriage has recently gained such momentum – with now three and soon four bills before the Commonwealth Parliament – that many think it is inevitable; this can leave those with misgivings feeling that they are already losers in a done deal. Some think it’s the inexorable progress of liberty and equality – which leaves the doubters ‘on the wrong side of history’. In this context supporters of classical marriage are presumed to have no real arguments to offer. So tonight I want to offer some reasons – not decrees from on high or from the past, not expressions of hatred or prejudice – but reasons I hope anyone can understand. I also hope you find these reasons persuasive and helpful in proclaiming and witnessing to true marriage among your families, friends and colleagues. But even if you disagree with me on this matter, I hope tonight’s talk will help you understand why Australian law has always held, and many people still hold, that marriage is for people of opposite sex.

I will examine five common slogans in this debate – that it’s all about justice, that sexual differences don’t matter, that it’s all about love, that it’s all about the numbers and that it doesn’t affect me. Along the way I will be offering some reasons for preserving the classical understanding of marriage rather than redefining it to include same-sex ‘marriage’ (SSM)[1].”
