Jesus to Mankind Crusade Prayer Meeting on Thurs. 30th Sept. 2021
Prayer Theme: Suffering and Persecution (Groups A&H)
Bible: Tobit 14: 1-7
Book of Truth: 16th March, 2013
Thoughts: The Bible reading was a surprise to us, as yesterday was the feast of St Michael and angels. The story which leads up to this is about how St.Raphael accompanied Tobias on his long journey for his father – Tobit (who had always faithful to God and showed immeasurable charity to his neighbour). It tells of how he became blind and had no way to earn a living for his family.
The Bible Reading we opened up on, was the last chapter and shows how, after many trials in which Tobit always remained faithful to God, he was rewarded with prosperity, but he continued to “fear God and give alms”.
God’s Truth applies to all ages. We will do well to take heed. We are also seeing prophecies fulfilled, idols replacing God and many in error. We too, need St Raphael to accompany us on our journeys, to heal us, to protect us, to cast out demons.
Tobit 14: 1-7
1 So the words of Tobit’s hymn of praise came to an end. Tobit died in peace at the age of a hundred and twelve and was buried with honor in Nineveh.
2He was fifty-eight years old when he lost his eyesight, and after he recovered it he lived in prosperity, giving alms; he continued to fear God and give thanks to the divine Majesty.
3As he was dying, he summoned his son Tobiah and Tobiah’s seven sons, and commanded him, “Son, take your children 4 and flee into Media, for I believe God’s word that Nahum spoke against Nineveh. It will all happen and will overtake Assyria and Nineveh; indeed all that was said by Israel’s prophets whom God sent will come to pass. Not one of all their words will remain unfulfilled, but everything will take place in the time appointed for it. So it will be safer in Media than in Assyria or Babylon. For I know and believe that whatever God has said will be accomplished. It will happen, and not a single word of the prophecies will fail.
As for our kindred who dwell in the land of Israel, they will all be scattered and taken into captivity from the good land. All the land of Israel will become a wilderness; even Samaria and Jerusalem will be a wilderness! For a time, the house of God will be desolate and will be burned.
5 But God will again have mercy on them and bring them back to the land of Israel. They will build the house again, but it will not be like the first until the era when the appointed times will be completed. Afterward all of them will return from their captivity, and they will rebuild Jerusalem with due honor. In it the house of God will also be rebuilt, just as the prophets of Israel said of it.
All the nations of the world will turn and reverence God in truth; all will cast away their idols, which have deceitfully led them into error.
7 They will bless the God of the ages in righteousness. All the Israelites truly mindful of God, who are to be saved in those days, will be gathered together and will come to Jerusalem; in security will they dwell forever in the land of Abraham, which will be given to them. Those who love God sincerely will rejoice, but those who commit sin and wickedness will disappear completely from the land.
Reading from the Book of Truth
My dearly beloved daughter, the tides will unleash and the destruction, caustarved of foo,sed by many wars, will commence as foretold.
The timing of the arrival of the false prophet will coincide with the declaration of wars all over the world. These wars will be triggered instantly and men will cower in fear as the implications become clear. Wars will take root and roll out like storms in the desert, where they will gain momentum and catch all of those who feel that their peace is guaranteed, like a thief in the night.
So many countries will be involved that it will take everyone by surprise. Soon the antichrist will make himself known in the midst of the carnage. Confusion, fear and loss of crops will compound the problem. Not long after, the Third Seal will be revealed when man will scramble for food as famines grip humanity. Starved of food, starved of spirit, starved of help, mankind will grasp at anything or anyone, which offers respite.The stage will have been set for the antichrist to arrive and announce himself to the world. By this time, mankind will be so relieved because of the man of peace, who offers so much hope, that they will become his willing slaves. They will fall for his elaborate plan to restructure the world and bring all nations together. The plan, they will be told, will be for the good of all and to rid the world of terrorism. The enemies, he will say he fights, and whom he will exert control over, are innocent victims used by him in the deceit, which he will present to the world.
When peace, or what seems like a truce, is restored, then will come the next stage, the unity of all nations, all religions, all countries, into one. This is when the union between the false prophet and the antichrist will become clear.
Those who will have been given the Truth, and whose names are in the Book of the Living, will know what is happening. Others, blind to the Truth of My Teachings, will not be so fortunate. Then it will be a matter of waiting. My Patience will mean that I will strive to save and protect those who will not be able to discern the Truth.
My Patience and My Mercy will result in Divine Intervention on a grand scale to save all God’s children from the grasp of the beast, whose only objective is to encourage sin. For there is one thing you must know; behind the charming allure of the antichrist will lie the plan to encourage sin, so that humanity will make the final choice – to side with the beast in defiance of God. When that time comes and after every attempt is made by Me to save souls it will be over.
Only the elect will be taken into My Kingdom.
