Jesus to Mankind Crusade Prayer Meeting on Mon. 8th Nov. 2021
Prayer Theme: Discipleship (Groups A&E)
Bible: Amos 1: 1-8
Book of Truth: 11th Oct, 2014
Thoughts: In the bible reading, from the prophet Amos, we see God’s response regarding the evil and crimes against His people, Israel. God warns them, through Amos, of how they will be punished. It reassures us that evil will not survive – that God is our King – not earthly rulers.
Once again, the readings complemented each other. God’s Word is always True. The Reading from the Book of Truth was also about God and His people, suffering under evil rulers.
God is always present at our prayer meetings, He is with all those who profess His Holy Word; He reminded us that He will always protect His children and punish evil doers who do them harm. He is our Hope and our Salvation. The Book of Truth is His prophetic Word for his people today, which guides us through these times.
After Prayer group, an interesting conversation came up about the ‘bolt of lightning’. See the story at the end, after the 2 readings.
Amos 1: 1-8
The LORD roars from Zion, and raises his voice from Jerusalem; The pastures of the shepherds languish, and the summit of Carmel withers.
II. ORACLES AGAINST THE NATIONS
For three crimes of Damascus, and now four— I will not take it back— Because they threshed Gilead with sledges of iron,
From the Valley of Aven I will cut off the one enthroned, And the sceptered ruler from Beth-eden; the people of Aram shall be exiled to Kir, says the LORD.
For three crimes of Gaza, and now four— I will not take it back—Because they exiled an entire population, handing them over to Edom, 7 I will send fire upon the wall of Gaza, and it will devour its strongholds;
Reading from the Book of Truth
My dearly beloved daughter, let no one underestimate the Power of God in all things, which may evolve in these times. God’s Power is infinite and not one man can overcome the Divinity or Will of God. Not one enemy of Mine can boast that he is greater than God, Who can, in just one breath, pour down His Justice upon the world. While God is patient, fair, just and full of unconditional Love for all of His children, including the wicked amongst them, He will retaliate against the wickedness of man, caused by the evil influence of the devil.
Cursed are those who rise up against God in defiance against the Holy Word. They will be punished in God’s Time, when they have been given every opportunity to change their ways. Those who worship evil and the beast will be struck by lightning, just as it was when Lucifer was thrown into the infernal abyss, like a bolt of lightning.
When My enemies harm others; try to kill them and maim them, in order to gain power over the weak, they will suffer a terrible chastisement. When genocide, of any kind, is perpetrated upon the innocent by devil worshipers, they will burn in Hell and they will be stopped just when they believe they have succeeded.
Divine Providence will always prevail, for there is no Power more Mighty than He Who created everything out of nothing.
Prayer Group sharing:
I mentioned the image of the lightning bolt which threw Lucifer into Hell. (see reading above), and how in Revelation (!9:20) it is mentioned that the beast and the false prophet were thrown ‘into the fiery pool burning with sulfur’. This is also prophesied in the Book of Truth.
To set the scene, we were all concerned for our children, because the govt. has approved the use of the vc for children aged 5 onwards. Last week it was reported in the News that in Albury, a bus had come to a certain school, loaded up all the students and took them off to receive the vc without parents’ knowledge or permission. Apparently there was also another school involved – hundreds of kilometres away. Then our Prime MInister, Scott Morrison announced that this exact scenario would begin next year. My daughter and granddaughter were at a quiet protest (held in many diverse parks}, where she met many parents and teachers, One was a Deputy Principal of a Catholic primary school who had received advice from Education headquarters, that this would indeed happen. He resigned on the spot.
Then one Crusader, said that she knew someone – a counsellor (where she worked) who had been struck by lightning, and there was no thunder or storm. She said she never had a good feeling about him and his interactions with others, but he never returned to the school after that. He was seen by the cleaner, an ambulance was called at his collapse and his heart was defibrillated. He lived. We reflected that perhaps God had used this for his benefit. (This occurred quite a few years ago.) A fairly new member of our group then stated that she knew of this person and that she and another person had withdrawn their child from the school because of him. We don’t presume to judge anyone, but it seems that God is telling us in these times that He will keep us safe and also give warnings to our enemies to save them. Lightning is indeed a tool used by God as seen in this story and several others.
