Evening Reflections on Persecution: 23rd May

AM+DG

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

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

 

 

 

 

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

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

Immaculate Heart

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

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

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

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

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

We were safe but he caused one trouble after another!

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

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

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

Comment by RemnantSurvivor:

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

(Crusader Will) – Shifting of the Blocks

Crusader Will is back. See his latest contribution below:

“Crusader Will reflects on changes in his circumstances and in the world scene over seven years into advancing age.

SHIFTING OF THE BLOCKS

i

Once I’d wait all year for it to get warm.

Now I can’t wait for it to get cool.

Erratic behaviour is now the norm

At the climax to Satan’s age-old rule.

 

I was told I would ‘come into my own’           

At ’62’. But my initial guess

That it concerned my age was overthrown

When the reference proved to be my address.

 

Shrunk have my horizons. Big City scope            

Eludes a small-town shift. Public transport

Is limited; most people drive. There’s no hope

For the pedestrian but to resort

 

To the furnace of the street, and the relief

Of the hat, the occasional awning

And the well-spaced tree. It’s past all belief.

An abyss of stuck-at-home is yawning

 

Unless I step out in faith: opt for the good    

As Christ’s Church is being split and contents hurled

To the ground, worshipers blinded by falsehood

                                  Into thinking all is well with the world.

 

Economics made me move. But all right      

Much in my world was, and I had certain plans

That even gave a reporter delight

To report. What hopefulness is a man’s.

 

The Church, the stage. A garden, photographs

And poems: all exercised my mind. I walked

Everywhere, even biked. A load of laughs

Not everything in my health was, but i balked

 

At few initiatives. I joined a troupe

Of entertainers. A charity cafe

Saw me wash dishes as well as serve soup.

A one-man show I wrote; work-shopped an old play;

 

While a visit to friends capped off a trip

To an overseas touring exhibition

Of Grace Kelly’s costumes and clothes, in whose grip

I wrote a piece on her life. This mission

 

I have still to completely accomplish.

And hope will segue into another piece

Of quasi-apocalyptic anguish

As Church-and-State transitional woes increase.

Task still in progress as I stem the decline

In my physical and artistic powers,

Where changes in tolerance work to consign

Me and my race to our darkest-veering hours.           

ii

Now we must be circumspect. I feel alone,

Utterly alone.  I don’t know who to trust

in a town whose truth-awareness at-the-bone

Stays unsounded: lurking beneath a tough crust.

 

Back to Grace: a Hopkins-like verse come-back

(Hand ‘a little out’ at first). I need a theme

To tempt my inner Muse to take up the slack.

That, or a cooler climate for the dream.

 

A ‘state of grace’ is indeed my prime concern;

Eternal salvation a personal quest –

And a spur to intercession as hordes burn

In hell,  untaught how to gain eternal rest.

 

In my country we run the gamut of modes        

Of allegiance: God, gods. no god at all,

Or the Prince of Darkness, who makes great inroads

Even on the once-true, who have the gall

 

To desecrate the very House of the Lord.

Never were the Seven Deadly Sins so bold,

So many ancient virtues put to the sword,

                                     So many of the old pieties grown cold.

 

The sordid, the grotesque, mass corruption,

Scorn for the eternal, deadness at the heart.

Many no longer have any compunction

About unrighteousness in trade or in art.

 

All been foretold, of course, though the future

Looked to is either too bleak or too far

To the turnaround for the makeshift suture

To hold. God’s wounds weep over the last hurrah.

Now, Catholic Prophecy  by Yves Dupont

Was published nearly fifty years ago.

Though my Charismatic phase found in this font

Of gloom too Fundamentalist an echo.

 

But Fatima and its plummeting sun

Brought me through to more recent Marian veins

Of forecast too close at hand not to have won

From me the conviction there of great truth-gains.

 

For soon after my Kelly endeavours

Came a plunge into a mission that has, since, 

Wrought a change that once and for all severs

All from all other reasons for existence.         

iii

The aging process and a small town afford

Distinct disadvantages.  Bus lacks have cut

Some interests back; stamina woes have gnawed

At some volunteering; and some doors have shut.

 

Verse I now write mainly to discursive ends,

Sometimes as song parody. Lyrical scope

Only occasional travel now lends.

(Beware of that slippery downward slope.)

 

Then came this poem (after calls to rescue

My lamp from the bushel). A fine-film club

(Complete with soft seats and a piano) grew

A poetry sub-group. Aye, there was the rub.

 

Now I was really ‘coming into my own’.

A small town could provide the right milieu

For testing the waters and getting known

On a small scale and in an esprit de jeu,

 

In temperate times of ‘mellow fruitfulness’

In which my body was holding level

And my mind receiving the astute coolness

Of peer endorsement. Long-last cue to revel.

 

Remains the apocalyptic. I retain

My caution. The lowdown on the Showdown

Lies in Revelation and Daniel. The stain

Of original sin swamps this land this town.

JtM Crusade Prayer Meeting Thursday 23rd February, 2017

A+M+D+G

Prayer Theme: Special Graces

Overview of Readings

  1. Bible: Job 37 (God, Master of all Creation; the marvellous works of God )
  2. B of T:28th July 2011. (victim soul; special graces to endure trials; always call on Our Lady; consecration as a victim soul.)

We only had 2 readings today, as afterwards we needed time to discuss natural remedies for various issues at a time when we will not have access to medicine and/or money. A fellow Crusader presented this, and does a little every now and then. Eventually we will also put them on the website in the appropriate category/menu item.

After the prayers and the readings, we always sing a hymn. Today we sang “Be Thou my vision..”

Bible (USCCB) Reading

  1.   Job: 37

At this, my very heart quakes and leaps out of its place.

2 Listen, oh listen, to the blast of his voice and the sound that issues from his mouth.

3 His lightning is hurled across the heaven, it strikes to the extremities of earth.

4 After it comes a roaring sound, God thunders with majestic voice. He does not check his thunderbolts until his voice resounds no more.

5 Yes, certainly God shows us marvels and does great deeds that we cannot understand.

6 When he says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth!’ to the showers, ‘Now rain hard!’

7 he brings all human activity to a standstill, for everyone to acknowledge his work.

8 The animals go back to their dens and take shelter in their lairs.

9 The storm wind comes from the Mansion of the South, and the north winds usher in the cold.

10 At the breath of God, ice comes next, the surface of the waters hardens over.

11 He weighs the clouds down with moisture, and the storm clouds radiate his lightning.

12 He himself guides their wheeling motion presiding over their seasonal changes. They carry out his orders to the letter all over this earthly world.

13 Whether to punish earth’s peoples or as a work of faithful love, he despatches them.

14 Listen to this, Job, without flinching and reflect on the marvellous works of God.

15 Do you know how God controls them or how his clouds make the lightning flash?

16 Do you know how he balances the clouds — a miracle of consummate skill?

17 When your clothes are hot to your body and the earth lies still under the south wind,

18 can you, like him, stretch out the sky, tempered like a mirror of cast metal?

19 Teach me what we should say to him: but better discuss no further, since we are in the dark.

20 Does he take note when I speak? When human beings give orders, does he take it in?

21 There are times when the light vanishes, behind darkening clouds; then comes the wind, sweeping them away.

22 and brightness spreads from the north. God is clothed in fearful splendour:

23 He, Shaddai, is far beyond our reach. Supreme in power, in equity, excelling in saving justice, yet no oppressor- 24 no wonder then that people fear him: everyone thoughtful holds him in awe!

Readings from the Book of Truth

2.  Message from Virgin Mary: ‘Victim Soul”

28th July, 2011

My child, it is with great joy that I come to help guide you in your Mission to help my beloved Son, Jesus Christ, to save even more souls. Your final surrender to offer to the Most High, God the Father, your agreement to become a victim soul is accepted with great joy in the Heavens.

You, my child, are now going to help save those souls who would otherwise have been destined for the pits of darkness. This offering will be rewarded with special graces to give you the strength to endure trials with greater ease. Your spirit, my child, will now be strengthened so that matters pertaining to the materialistic world will matter little in your eyes.

Always call on me, your Mother and mentor, to bring you into the Bosom of my precious, beloved Son, Jesus Christ and God the Most High. Pray now to prepare adequately to consecrate yourself properly for this important challenge.

I will always cover you with my Holy Mantle and you, my sweet child, will always be close to my Heart.

Your beloved Mother
Queen of the Angels

 

JTM Prayer Group Meeting Thursday 12th November, 2015

The readings are always chosen randomly.on

Prayer theme today: Group F – “Faith, Family, church, Nations”

In brief: (summary)

1. Bible reading: “Do not listen to false prophets among you”                   

2. Book of Truth: God the Father’s authority over this mission  and His greatest gift – the Book of Truth.                                       

3. Book of Truth: The mission has Our Lady’s protection. Hatred is a sign of God’s prophet.                                       

4. Book of Truth: The importance of the Mission and the power prayer for our loved ones and the amazing blessings we receive when we pray for them.

  1. Douay Rheims Bible; Jeremiah 29: 1-9

    Jeremias writeth to the captives in Babylon, exhorting them to be easy there, and not to hearken to false prophets. That they shall be delivered after seventy years. But those that remain in Jerusalem shall perish by the sword, famine, and pestilence. And that Achab, Sedecias, and Semeias, false prophets, shall die miserably.

[1] Now these are the words of the letter which Jeremias the prophet sent from Jerusalem to the residue of the ancients that were carried into captivity, and to the priests, and to the prophets, and to all the people, whom Nabuchodonosor had carried away from Jerusalem to Babylon: [2] After that Jechonias the king, and the queen, and the eunuchs, and the princes of Juda, and of Jerusalem, and the craftsman, and the engravers were departed out of Jerusalem: [3] By the hand of Elasa the son of Saphan, and Gamarias the son of Helcias, whom Sedecias king of Juda sent to Babylon to Nabuchodonosor king of Babylon, saying: [4] Thus saith the Lord of hosts the God of Israel, to all that are carried away captives, whom I have caused to be carried away from Jerusalem to Babylon: [5] Build ye houses, and dwell in them: and plant orchards, and eat the fruit of them.
[6] Take ye wives, and beget sons and daughters: and take wives for your sons, and give your daughters to husbands, and let them bear sons and daughters: and be ye multiplied there, and be not few in number. [7] And seek the peace of the city, to which I have caused you to be carried away captives; and pray to the Lord for it: for in the peace thereof shall be your peace. [8] For thus saith the Lord of hosts the God of Israel: Let not your prophets that are in the midst of you, and your diviners deceive you: and give no heed to your dreams which you dream: [9] For they prophesy falsely to you in my name: and I have not sent them, saith the Lord

2. God the Father: There is nothing that I would not do for My children. No sacrifice is too high

9 February 2014
My dearest daughter, there is nothing that I would not do for My children.
No sacrifice is too high.
I lower myself so that I can place My Heart at their feet and yet they will continue to trample over it.
I humble myself by calling out to them through these messages and they mock me and sneer.
I permitted them to scourge and murder My Son and they underestimate the great sacrifice I made for them, to give them life and free them from slavery to the evil one.
I plead with them to amend their ways and they ignore me.
I sent chosen souls to speak with them and to proclaim my word and they spat in their faces.
I sent punishments upon them and they did not learn from them.
Instead, they claimed that they were merely a twist of fate and had nothing to do with me.
I sent them My Love, through miraculous gifts given to visionaries, seers, Saints and prophets and only a few made use of them.
Mark my words now, the Book of Truth is the greatest gift given by me to the world, since I sent my only son to redeem you.
I bequeath this precious gift so that it will open your heart, free your soul from its attachment to the temptations of the Devil and help prepare you for My Kingdom.
My powerful intervention at this time means that the speed by which my word will spread, as and from today, will shock and surprise many.
When you hear my word, spoken in every tongue, where little organization by the human hand is involved, you will be given the proof of the power of the Holy Spirit.
I will ensure that my work persists.
I will walk over all those who try to halt my hand.
I will push to one side those who are guided by the spirit of evil and deafen the sound of their pitiful voices.
I will, with the swipe of my hand, silence those who try to stop me, when I only desire to save every single soul.
I am determined not to allow this work to be ignored, for once I give my authority to a mission, such as this one, you can be assured that man’s power is nothing compared to it.
Be calm, dear children, and trust in me, your beloved Father.
My Love is so great that it cannot be diluted, no matter how grievously you sin.
I am permitting these trials, tribulations and wicked plans to erase all traces of My Son, but only for a short time.
Never be fearful of my plans, for they have a purpose and that is to wipe out all evil and bring you all a life of glory, in accordance with my holy will.
You have much to look forward to.
All I ask is that you pray and follow all that I have given to you, at this time, through my holy mission to bring you all the ultimate, priceless gift that I have created for you in the new Heaven and the new Earth – my New Paradise – just as it was meant to be when I created adam and eve.
Always remember My Love for you all, when you are feeling weak or vulnerable, for it is so great it is beyond your comprehension.
Your beloved Father
God the Most High

3. Mother of God: You have been sent to prepare the way for His Second Coming

6 April 2013
My child, no matter how lonely or difficult this mission is, you must always continue to obey My Son.
You must respect every request made of you.
You must respond to every task expected of you, even if this means you will incur the wrath of others.
Every single one of God’s visionaries, to whom I appeared, suffered by the hands of those who rejected them cruelly.
Although many of them were eventually believed, you, My child, will suffer the most because you are a prophet of God.
God’s prophets have always stirred up hatred amongst his children, because Satan inflicts his most terrible scourging against those who speak the word of God.
As the end time prophet, your enemies will consist of, not only those who reject and hate My Son, but those who love him.
Your enemies will outnumber all those who came before you.
This is why you must obey My Son at all times and respond to him quickly, for he does these things and asks you to follow his instructions, to keep you safe.
You have been sent to prepare the way for his second coming and with this responsibility will come much sorrow.
As the lies, the hatred and the fierce opposition to these messages continue, you must comfort yourself, because without this mission many more souls would not accept My Son’s mercy.
Pray for every single person who flings abuse at you, because when you pray for them, My Son will enlighten them and soon they will open their eyes to the truth.
I, your Beloved Mother, cover you with my most holy mantle and I crush the head of the serpent every single time he tries to harm you.
So go now, My child, in peace.
Trust in me, the Mother of Salvation, at all times as I guard this special mission.
Trust in My Son, for he knows what he is doing.
Leave all in his sacred hands.
Your Beloved Mother
Mother of God
Mother of Salvation

4. Doubts make you stronger in your love for Me

21 September 2011
I come in the name of Jesus, who came in the flesh and was made man.
My dearly beloved daughter, you are now so very close to My Heart, yet you can feel so far away.
At times you think you have been separated from me, when in fact, you have only drawn closer in union with me.
So strong now, My daughter, I am building your confidence, so that you can continue to proclaim my word to mankind.
This is a very important mission.
Because of the demons unleashed in their millions by Satan in these times, they are attacking you on every corner.
The first people they will use will be believers who will queue up to throw the first stone at you.
As my great act of mercy for mankind gets closer, so too will the demons try to block out the truth and prevent people, good people, from investing the time I need of them to save the souls of My children with no belief at all.
Do not allow cruel slander, which is gathering momentum, to distract you from my work.
Heed now my prophecy.
For every man who repents at this time, three more souls can be saved per man.
Think of it like this.
The blessings bestowed on man who seeks forgiveness will be given to these people’s families.
Every soul who prays to me now and asks me to save their closest family and friends will receive My Mercy in abundance.
Prayer is your salvation, My children.
The more you pray, the more I will open your hearts and reveal my truth.
My favours have now been extended in a way not witnessed on this Earth before.
However, I cannot pour out these powerful graces unless you ask for them.
My daughter, be advised that a viciousness, which will startle you, will now be seen in a mounting attack on these Divine Messages.
Ignore them.
Close your eyes.
Block your ears.
Instead, pray that such souls will see enlightenment.
Doubts, My daughter, are trials experienced, not only by you, but, by My beloved followers.
While they can be unsettling, they are allowed by me to make you all stronger in your love for me.
Relax now, My children.
Accept my word.
Live your lives as I expect you to.
Put your families first, before everything.
They must never be neglected on my behalf.
Pray now with quiet confidence and be assured that my prophecies will unfold at the command of my Eternal Father.
They will happen according to the perfect timing laid down by My Father.
Never forget, My children, that many secrets given to my visionaries and seers, foretelling future events to come, have been mitigated through prayer.
Many, many ecological disasters have been averted because of the devotion shown to my Blessed Mother.
Her devotees have averted many Earthquakes, floods and tsunamis because of their prayers.
Prayer can be very powerful.
One person’s prayers and suffering can save a nation.
Remember that.
I love all, My children.
The power to save each other lays in your hands, children.
Don’t forget what I have said before.
Prayer is your armour against evil in this world.
Prayer can mitigate global disasters.
Keep praying for peace in your world.
Pray, too, for an easy transition to the New Paradise on Earth, which awaits all My children who seek redemption.
Your beloved Jesus
