Bible Reading

2 Corinthians 12: 1-10

I must boast; not that it is profitable, but I will go on to visions and revelations of the Lord. I know someone in Christ who, fourteen years ago (whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows), was caught up to the third heaven. 3 And I know that this person (whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows) 4 was caught up into Paradise and heard ineffable things, which no one may utter. About this person I will boast, but about myself I will not boast, except about my weaknesses. 6 Although if I should wish to boast, I would not be foolish, for I would be telling the truth. But I refrain, so that no one may think more of me than what he sees in me or hears from me 7 because of the abundance of the revelations. Therefore, that I might not become too elated, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, an angel of Satan, to beat me, to keep me from being too elated. Three times I begged the Lord about this, that it might leave me, 9 but he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness.” I will rather boast most gladly of my weaknesses, in order that the power of Christ may dwell with me. 10 Therefore, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and constraints, for the sake of Christ; for when I am weak, then I am strong.

(St Paul reminds us that  while doing God’s work as part of the Remnant Army, there will always be problems,  but God’s grace is all we need – so we should be “content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions and constraints for the sake of Christ”. In fact, that is what we should boast about.)

My Second Coming cannot take place until the contamination of sin has been eradicated

August 21, 2013 @ 6:05pm

My dearly beloved daughter, the renewal and purification of the Earth has now commenced as My Time draws near. My Second Coming cannot take place until the contamination of sin has been eradicated, through the cleansing needed on this Earth.

As the Earth will be purified, souls of every creed will be plunged into a renewal of the spirit and many will endure a terrible spiritual battle. They will not understand what they are enduring, but I will allow this because of My Mercy. In order to be fit to stand before Me and to be given Eternal Life in the New Paradise, souls must first be purified. This purification will take place on Earth, for those who will live through the persecution of the antichrist, as well as for those who will live through the transition into the New Paradise. The Earth will, at the same time, commence its own renewal and all evil will be weeded out, stage by stage.

Be thankful that My Father has not lost His Patience and that He does not punish His children, according to the severity of their sins. Be thankful also that He does not just turn His Back now and simply take those souls who truly love Him away from this Earth, which by its iniquity, disgusts Him.

My Father perseveres because His children are His Creation and He will not allow them to be taken by Satan. So jealous was Lucifer, that when My Father created man in His Own Likeness, he vowed to fight to the last day in order to turn man against his Creator.

My Father will intervene, out of Love, in order to render powerless the strength of Satan. Every attempt, of Satan’s version of the Triune God, comprising of the false prophet, the antichrist and the spirit of evil, will be thwarted. This battle will be ugly, unfair to many souls, who will be too weak to wrestle free from the grip of evil, but it will be won by Almighty God.

You must, all of you, turn to My Father and beg Him to salvage your souls and to protect you from following the beast on the road to perdition.

Your Jesus

God the Father: Without Me you could not exist

October 28, 2014 @ 8:20pm

My dearest daughter, My children must know that there is only one God. Only one.  Any other exists only in the minds of man. Any other god is an abomination in My Eyes and the man who succumbs to worshipping false gods, serves only the devil, who delights in man’s fall from grace.

I Am the Beginning and the End. Nothing can prevail against Me. Even the demons and fallen angels, which I cast into the abyss, will never stand before Me and challenge Me, for they are without such power.

So many religions have been founded by fallible man, and this has caused much confusion.  From the beginning I spoke with One Voice and, until the end, there can only be One Voice. The world is Mine for I created it.  I created every living thing. I also created My Heavenly Hierarchy from which I threw out those angels who defied and betrayed Me.  Many of these fallen angels communicate with My children who have created a new age form of spiritualism. I warn those of you who adore false gods, through the pursuit of such practices. Such spiritualism will expose your souls to evil spirits whose only desire is to destroy your souls.

These false angels are demons, disguised as living spirits of the light, and they will seduce you into believing falsities.  Every lie about My Heavenly Hierarchy will be fed to you so that you will place all your needs before satan and evil spirits. All they do is savage your souls like wild beasts and then leave you empty and bereft of any love.  At first, when you give yourself over to such idolatry, you will be given a false sense of peace.  Demons can give such powers but they are short-lived. For once they gain access to your souls, they will torment you and goad you into demonic acts.

I Am all that was in the Beginning and I Am the End. All begins and ends with Me.  When you place false gods before Me, and do this because of your selfish desire to seek pleasure, power and control of your destiny, you are guilty of breaking My First Commandment.

Without Me you could not exist. Without Me you have no future. Without My Son you cannot come to Me.  Reject My only beloved Son, Jesus Christ, the True Messiah, and you reject Me.

The Truth was first given to the world when paganism was rife. The Truth was given to the world with the birth of My Son and generations were converted. The Truth is being given again to the world now, as the great apostasy strangles the souls of those who believe in My Son, and at a time when paganism is rife again. Just as it was in the beginning when I was rejected by ungrateful men so, too, will it be in the end, when men’s hearts will turn to stone and their souls, will be given away freely to the devil. Then, the world as you know it, will be no more as the New Heaven and the New Earth merge as one. Finally, peace will reign again and I will unite those who choose to come with Me.

Your beloved Father
God the Most High

Bible Reading

Matthew 12: 22-37

Jesus and Beelzebul. 22 Then they brought to him a demoniac who was blind and mute. He cured the mute person so that he could speak and see. 23 All the crowd was astounded, and said, “Could this perhaps be the Son of David?” 24 But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, “This man drives out demons only by the power of Beelzebul, the prince of demons.” 25 But he knew what they were thinking and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be laid waste, and no town or house divided against itself will stand. 26 And if Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself; how, then, will his kingdom stand? 27 And if I drive out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your own people drive them out? Therefore they will be your judges. 28 But if it is by the Spirit of God that I drive out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. 29 How can anyone enter a strong man’s house and steal his property, unless he first ties up the strong man? Then he can plunder his house. 30 Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters. 31 Therefore, I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven people, but blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. 32 And whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven; but whoever speaks against the holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.

A Tree and Its Fruits. 33Either declare the tree good and its fruit is good, or declare the tree rotten and its fruit is rotten, for a tree is known by its fruit. 34 You brood of vipers, how can you say good things when you are evil? For from the fullness of the heart the mouth speaks. 35 A good person brings forth good out of a store of goodness, but an evil person brings forth evil out of a store of evil. 36 I tell you, on the day of judgment people will render an account for every careless word they speak. 37 By your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.”

Do not cut yourself off from Me. If you do, there will be great weeping

September 5, 2014 @ 8:45pm

My dearly beloved daughter, let it be known that death has no power over those of Mine, whose faith has sustained them right up to their last breath. These souls have no fear of physical death because they know that Eternal Life begins at that time.  I await such souls with open arms and they run like little children towards the Light of My Love. I embrace them and take them into My Kingdom, awaiting each and every such soul in the presence of the Hierarchy of Angels and all the saints – then great rejoicing takes place.

I reunite them with their families and there is much joy, love and excitement. No more tears. No memories of the sufferings, which they endured on earth, remain. All worries, sadness and despair are wiped away and forgotten, in an instant. Death opens the door for those who die in a state of Grace as new life begins.For every soul who is welcomed into My Kingdom, there are different levels, and each one is accorded their reward, based on the Glory, which they have given to God.

For souls who die in a state of sin, know that I Am All Merciful and, after their purification, they will be welcomed into My Kingdom. Always pray for such souls because they cannot pray for themselves at that stage.  Your prayers will be heard and I will await these souls with open and loving arms. It is important for every child of God to understand one important thing about life after death. You must ask Me, Your Jesus, to forgive you; your failings; your weaknesses and your iniquities, before you die, for it is then that My Mercy is at its greatestIf you do not believe in God, you reject Eternal Life. Without love for God, love cannot be yours after death.  I Am Love and without Me, you will feel nothing but pain. Separation from God is to be feared. If you feel confused about My Existence, then you must simply ask Me to show you a sign of My Love, and I will respond.

Do not cut yourself off from Me. If you do, there will be great weeping and you can never be consoled, for I will be unable to help you.My Kingdom will give you Eternal Life but you must ask Me for My Help by reciting this prayer.

Crusade Prayer (165) For the Gift of Eternal Life

Jesus help me to believe in Your Existence. Give me a sign so that my heart can respond to You. Fill my empty soul with the Grace that I need to open my mind and my heart to Your Love. Have Mercy on me, and cleanse my soul from every wrongdoing, that I have committed in my life. Forgive me for rejecting You, but please fill me with the love that I need, to be made worthy of Eternal Life. Help me to know You, to see Your Presence in other people and fill me with the Grace to recognise the Sign of God in every beautiful Gift which You have given the human race. Help me to understand Your Ways and save me from the separation and the pain of darkness that I feel in my soul. Amen.

Do not allow human pride, intellectual analysis or opinion to sway you from the Truth.  As a child of God you are very precious to Me. Do not let Me lose you.Come. I Am Here. I Am Real. Let Me fill your soul with My Presence.  Once that happens you will find it difficult to ignore Me.

I love you all. I bless you. I await your response.

Your Jesus

After this reading, (which was chosen by another prayer group member, but was read by Crusader D) she went to close the book, but for some reason, D’s thumb suddenly stopped it from closing.  It was not an accident but a decisive movement and she doesn’t know why she did it. She looked down and her eyes fell immediately where her thumb was placed: to the heading of the article on that page, “My most esteemed bishop …”. We were all feeling pretty sad for Cardinal Pell, and just before the meeting had been discussing recent events and the prayers /Masses we were saying and offering up for him. We were talking about how there was a strong air of hate in society and priests were afraid to go out in public.

Everything was taken from Him – his Rosary beads etc, and he was not allowed to even say a private Mass in his gaol cell (according to Victorian law). Jesus was reminding us that He was with us in our sadness, and that He was also with our beloved Cardinal. We know that this hate is just a foretaste of what is to come in the future. We didn’t read the reading because we had looked at it many times in the past few weeks. We went on to the next Crusader who had chosen a reading (randomly, as always) and the heading also seemed also to be speaking to us re: the Cardinal Pell situation.

Pray for those who cause you pain

21 March 2011 @ 11:00pm

Tonight, My beloved daughter, you feel a peace, which you have not felt for such a long time. You, My daughter, have been tortured by the deceiver and now, through the graces that I have bestowed no longer feel the effects of such attacks.

I have sent you a clean soul, full of love, to help guide you. He will hold your hand and lead you towards Me and the Truth. You, My beloved daughter, now understand what it is like to suffer in My Name. You know what it is like to be mocked in public, ridiculed behind your back, accused of wrongdoing, of which you are not guilty, and all, in My Name.

Rejoice, My daughter, for this means that you have now become closer in union with Me. Prayer, as you now finally understand, will keep you in a state of grace and peace.

My daughter, do not judge those who cause you pain. Pray for them. Forgive them. But you have already done that haven’t you? Now you understand the Truth of My Teachings. I will make you stronger and stronger, My daughter. Never fear. As I have told you before, the deceiver will never steal your soul. I hold you close in My Arms and vow that should you stray I will always draw you back to Me.

You must now gain the strength and courage to communicate My Divine Messages to mankind. They are urgent. You know what to do. Call Me into your heart every minute of the day.

I love you, My brave, precious daughter. I Am proud of you in the way you calmly defended the Truth and did not deny these Sacred Messages, because you now know the Truth.

Your loving Saviour, Jesus Christ.

The Report of the Guard 11 While they were going, some of the guard went into the city and told the chief priests all that had happened.12 They assembled with the elders and took counsel; then they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers, 13 telling them, “You are to say, ‘His disciples came by night and stole him while we were asleep.’ 14 And if this gets to the ears of the governor, we will satisfy [him] and keep you out of trouble.” 15 The soldiers took the money and did as they were instructed. And this story has circulated among the Jews to the present [day]

Prepare your family to witness My Cross in the Sky

8 June 2011 @ 4:45pm

My dearly beloved daughter, I must share with you the feelings I Am enduring now. The first is one of happiness, because I Am to bring so much Mercy to My children during the Illumination of Conscience, which is close. And then there are My Tears of great sadness, for those oblivious to this event and who are unprepared.

My children will need to tell as many of their friends and family of this Great Event in order to save their souls. No matter if they smile and ridicule your claims, for afterwards, they will thank you. Tell them the Truth. Ask them to open their minds.

They should be made aware of what they will witness, because when they see My Cross in the sky they will be prepared. That is all they need to understand. Then they will accept the discomfort they will endure when their past lives are played out before their eyes. Tell them to review their life and remind them of the harm that they may have inflicted on their fellow brothers and sisters.

Spread My Word after the Warning
My children, as soon as The Warning happens and when conversion takes place move quickly to spread My Most Holy Word. There is an urgency to this because this will be a crucial period. That is when, through the work of My beloved followers everywhere, that My children will stay on the right path. It will be the time when prayer and conversion can dilute the impact of the havoc, which will come about through the reign of both the antichrist and the false prophet.

Accept the Truth now for what it is. Do not fear the Truth. Embrace it; for when you do, you will be set free and your confidence in Me will enable you to defend My Word properly. Fear will hold you back, My precious children. Courage will win souls. Your battle, on My behalf, will ease My suffering and bring eternal life to so many more souls who desperately need your help.

My Love for you, children, is all-encompassing and never waivers in its intensity. My Cross is heavy, but when you take it up with love in your hearts, your load will be light. You My beloved followers, sacred servants and lay people, are My future army to help defeat Satan. Pray now for the strength to deal with the challenges to your faith.

Lead by example and the Gift I Am bestowing on each of you who pledges his or her allegiance to Me will create instant conversion when you speak My Most Holy Word.

Remember, I Am with you all the time now. Many of you who have been close to Me for some time will now experience a stronger sense of the Holy Spirit and the power of discernment, which will astonish you. Accept this as one of the greatest Gifts being given to man today. I have not bestowed a multitude of such graces since My apostles were given the precious Gifts through The Holy Spirit.

You, My followers, including My sacred servants, are My True Church. I will, with the help of God the Eternal Father, lead you so you can march with all My children towards the New Paradise, which awaits you all.

Your loving Saviour
Jesus Christ

Reading from the Book of Truth

Finally, the Jews will be shown the proof of My Father’s Covenant

February 11, 2014 @ 11:41pm

My dearly beloved daughter, how this Mission has grown and how it will evolve very quickly now, as I prepare for My Time to come.

I have begun the next plan to bring awareness to all of God’s children of the great new world, which awaits you and this preparation will be in stages. The first stage is purification. This will mean disruptions, climate changes, upheavals and a terrible apostasy, which will sweep the Earth. These will all take place at the same time. Then, My Church will fall and only the Remnant will hold on to the Truth and bear witness to My Holy Word. 

I will gather people from every corner of the world – every Christian faith, first. Then I will draw others to Me. Finally, the Jews will be shown the proof of My Father’s Covenant and they will be brought into the Kingdom of God, as foretold.

Many voices now drown out My Own Voice, but yet it will only be My Voice which they will notice, for My Tongue is like a sword and My Presence like a fork of lightning. When I make My Presence felt, it will be in the most humble of abodes and shared with kind souls – the gentle, as well as the astute. I will make My Presence known amongst the heathen and, for the first time, they will question their future eternity and begin to open their hearts to Me. You see, not one soul will be left untouched. Some will not welcome Me, but they will know that I Am there.

My Time to make My Presence felt, by the Power of the Holy Spirit, is very near. I desire that you reconcile your souls before Me and be ready to receive Me, for you will not know the time or the hour. One thing I will tell you is that it will be sudden.

Your beloved Jesus

Man must strive, at all times, to be like Me
4 February 2013

My dearly beloved daughter, as the calamities grow, all around the Earth, on a simple level, man must strive, at all times, to be like me.
In your daily lives, it is important to treat others as I have taught you, during my time on Earth.

You must always think, first, before you take any action, which will affect another person in ways, which could cause conflict.
When you are asked for help, give it.
If someone creates a row with you, which you know will cause hurt to others, you must stop this.
How you communicate with others will have a direct effect on your peace of mind.
Treat others unfairly, speak ill of them or try to cheat them, and you will do this unto yourself.
For I will judge you, as you treat others.

Anything good within your hearts can be nurtured to enable you to become a vessel, so you can treat others as I would treat them.
For, every action you take to please me gives great glory to God.
Always seek out the truth in your daily lives, as it will help you in your struggle against the evil, which you will find yourselves pitted against, during every stage of this journey with me.
Your Jesus

These vile acts must come to pass, as the Earth is being purified
 24 April 2013

My dearly beloved daughter, as I continue to cleanse the world with my gift of the Holy Spirit, greater hatred for me, Jesus Christ, ensues.
As my presence increases within the hearts of man, the amount of hatred will be seen through the actions of those who contradict my most holy word.

Those who continue to bring in laws, which blaspheme against God, will increase every effort to defile the word of God.
These vile acts must come to pass, as the Earth is being purified.
As the cleansing intensifies, so too will the evil of sin be exposed to you.
You will notice that every conceivable act, which is against God, will be promoted by those enemies of mine.

Many will profess their innocence, but these acts will not be accepted by those of mine, who know the truth.
The gift of discernment, which I bequeath to many souls, means that these evil acts perpetrated by those in positions of power, who control nations, will be seen for what they are – the work of Satan.

Satan’s evil spirits have increased their presence in the souls of those who do not believe in God.
Not content are they that such souls turn their backs on God, these wicked spirits goad these people into promoting the most vile sins.
In time, these souls become so corrupt and full of hatred for God, that they will plunge into a darkness, which will never be able to tolerate the light of God.

Remember, My Mercy is great.
It will only be by My Mercy that these people can be saved.
There is no other hope for them, for many of these tortured souls are not capable, by their own free will – so infested are they – of asking for My Hand of Mercy.

Those of you who know me and who love me must help these poor people by begging for the salvation of their souls.
You must ask that they turn to me now, so that I can intervene to stop the persecution they intend to inflict upon the world.
You must beg me, through personal sacrifice, that they are stopped from the genocide they are planning.
The worst form of genocide will be seen through unjust wars and the murder of the innocent in their mothers’ wombs.
Your Jesus

Mother of Salvation: My Son has sent no one to distract you from these Messages
August 6, 2014

My dear children, be mindful of those who persecute you in the Name of my Son, Jesus Christ, as they will be careful to hide behind a veneer of holiness. The evil one will never present as he really is, because he is far too cunning. He will, instead, through the souls he influences, approach you with a façade of love and many will fall for this deceit. The words he uses may seem soothing and enticing, but they will leave an uneasy feeling in your soul.

When Messages are given to the world by the command of my Eternal Father, they will never make demands of you. They will never give a man power over you to encourage you to pledge allegiance to any living person.

All glory must be to God. No man can promise you salvation, as this can only come from God. You may prepare your souls as you have been taught by my Son, Jesus Christ, and receive the Sacraments. You may accept the Gifts of Graces given to you, through me, the Immaculate Virgin Mary, but you do not need permission from anyone in order to be made worthy to serve my Son, in this or any other mission, sanctioned in Heaven.

Be wary of the enemies of my Son, as they are everywhere, doing all in their power to blind humanity from the Truth of my Son’s Promise to come again. He will return soon and then the Truth will be made known and all that He promised will come to light. Until the great Day of the Lord you must only focus on my Son and place all your trust in Him. My Son has sent no one to distract you from these Messages, the last of their kind, and any one who claims otherwise does not come from Him.

Trust, trust, trust in the Mercy of my Son. Listen to what He has taught you – all is contained in the Holy Bible. His Word is simple. It is not complicated. Just follow His Teachings, which span over 2,000 years and then you will find peace.
Your Beloved Mother
Mother of Salvation

Douay Rheims. Epistle of St Paul to Romans: 11(1-12)
[1] I say then: Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.
[2] God hath not cast away his people, which he foreknew. Know you not what the scripture saith of Elias; how he calleth on God against Israel?
[3] Lord, they have slain thy prophets, they have dug down thy altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.
[4] But what saith the divine answer to him? I have left me seven thousand men, that have not bowed their knees to Baal. [5] Even so then at this present time also, there is a remnant saved according to the election of grace.
[6] And if by grace, it is not now by works: otherwise grace is no more grace
[7] What then? That which Israel sought, he hath not obtained: but the election hath obtained it; and the rest have been blinded.
[8] As it is written: God hath given them the spirit of insensibility; eyes that they should not see; and ears that they should not hear, until this present day.
[9] And David saith: Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumbling block, and a recompense unto them. [10] Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see: and bow down their back always.
[11] I say then, have they so stumbled, that they should fall? God forbid. But by their offence, salvation is come to the Gentiles, that they may be emulous of them. [12] Now if the offence of them be the riches of the world, and the diminution of them, the riches of the Gentiles; how much more the fulness of them

Notes: (as per Bible)[4] Seven thousand: This is very ill alleged by some, against the perpetual visibility of the church of Christ; the more, because however the number of the faithful might be abridged by the persecution of Jezabel in the kingdom of the ten tribes, the church was at the same time in a most flourishing condition (under Asa and Josaphat) in the kingdom of Judah.
[6] It is not now by works: If salvation were to come by works, done by nature, without faith and grace, salvation would not be a grace or favour, but a debt; but such dead works are indeed of no value in the sight of God towards salvation. It is not the same with regard to works done with, and by, God’s grace; for to such works as these, he has promised eternal salvation.
[8] God hath given them: Not by his working or acting in them; but by his permission, and by withdrawing his grace in punishment of their obstinacy.
