Exciting times…no?… Yes, exciting times…

Posted by Anne Elizabeth on January 27, 2018

Be not afraid! Jesus we TRUST in you!

I begin today’s offering with a beautiful reminder:

If My people, who are called by My name, HUMBLE THEMSELVES, and PRAY and SEEK My face, and TURN from their WICKED WAYS, then I will hear from Heaven, and I will FORGIVE their sin and HEAL their land. ~2 Chron 7:14, emphasis added by me.

May I recommend that ya’ll write that down multiple times and place this verse throughout your home as it will encourage you during the difficult days ahead. For as the LORD said through His servant, Joshua:

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; be not frightened, neither dismayed, for the LORD, your GOD, is with you wherever you go. ~Joshua 1:9, emphasis added by me.

PRAYER…Prayer…prayer

What the Church teaches…

It’s all about PRAYER, folks. Why? Because it’s THAT IMPORTANT. The Catechism of the Catholic Church states:

[Prayer is] the elevation of the mind and heart to God in praise of His GLORY; 

But that’s not all… there’s more!

[Prayer is also] a petition made to God for some desired good, OR in thanksgiving for a good received, OR in intercession for others before GOD.

You see, we not only give praise to God, give thanks to God, make petitions to God, BUT we also INTERCEED for one another before God – that is pray for each other in our needs and times of struggle. The Catechism concludes:

Through prayer the Christian experiences a communion with God through Christ in the Church. ~Glossary of Terms, emphasis added by me.

So it’s an all-inclusive practice that benefits everyone and makes us more aware of the goodness and generosity of our Creator in His GLORY. Did you know that PART FOUR of the catechism is all about PRAYER? Doesn’t that suggest that PRAYER is IMPORTANT???

Wake up! The time has come, the time is NOW.

More so now than ever before!  In my last post I gave more than adequate scripture support to suggest that we are now entering into a time of purification.

To be sure, it won’t be easy or pleasant. Like whenever we work on purifying ourselves – be it a detox regiment or reflection on where our particular life is headed – there are moments of absolute discomfort, agony, and in some cases a need for a 180-turnaround! Right?

So, too, should we expect the same for the purification of mankind. Take a look at Salvation History, replete with purifications!

Even when Moses was told to lead the people of Israel out of Egypt, there had to be some purification of the Egyptians before they could leave Egypt (10 plagues); and even of Israel before she was able to cross into the Promise Land (golden calf; biting serpents; 40 years of wandering when it should have only taken a couple of weeks…etc…etc)… So this ain’t going to be “a piece of cake”, and we need all the help we can get to make the necessary changes within ourselves to “cross over the Jordon into the Promise Land” – aka the Era of Peace.

Our Lady, Queen of Peace, as painted by description from the visionaries…

Now, I’m not ashamed to admit that, just before I remembered that yesterday was the 25th, I was having a “moaning moment” with Jesus about this calling to fulltime Prayer and Fasting. I asked for something so OBVIOUS that I couldn’t argue my way out of it OR make any more excuses for not following through with what He’s asking me to do.

Here’s what He gave to me… and to the World… Medjugorje, Jan 25th, 2018, emphasis added by moi:

Dear Children! May this time be for YOU a time of PRAYER, so that the Holy Spirit, through prayer, may descend upon you and give YOU conversion

Golly, does that sound familiar?!?! Last week’s post is listed below this one. 😉

Hey, guess what’s even coooler???

When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place… All these with one accord DEVOTED THEMSELVES to PRAYER… And suddenly a SOUND came from Heaven like the rush of a mighty wind, and it filled the house where they were…and there appeared to them tongues of fire… resting on each one of them. And they were filled with the Holy Spirit… ~Acts 1:14a; 2:1-4a

On that day, the Apostles became true Apostles! They spoke boldly and clearly of the TRUTH of Jesus Christ. Do you know that the great Marian Saint, St Louis de Montfort – who gave us the first consecration formula to the Sacred Heart through the Immaculate Heart that all others are based on (St Mother Teresa’s, St Maximilian Kolbe, 33 Days to Morning Glory), wrote in his devotion this very event as given to Marjia:

The Holy Spirit, finding His dear spouse present [Mary, Mother of God], again in souls, will come down INTO THEM with GREAT POWER. He will fill them with His Gifts, ESPECIALLY WISDOM, by which THEY will produce wonders of GRACE… [they] will hide themselves completely in the depths of her soul… those richest in GRACE and VIRTUE will be the most assiduous [consistent with commitment] in praying to the Blessed Virgin Mary…as a powerful helper to assist them…  True Devotion to Mary, #217 and #46

Which is an echo from Jan 2nd’s message to Mirjana:

I, the mother, am coming to help you to come to know TRUE FAITH – living and profound – so as to help you to truly love.

So back to January 25th Message. Mom tells us plainly what we NEED to DO at this time:

Open your hearts AND read the SACRED SCRIPTURES, that through the testimonies you also may be closer to God.

 Anyone doing any bible study? May I highly recommend doing one on Prayer. As noted in my last post, the book Battle Plan for Prayer is an excellent resource! Because Our Lady continues:

Above EVERYTHING, little Children, SEEK GOD and the THINGS OF GOD and leave earthly ones to the earth…

 Like mindless entertainment – video games, TV, wasting vast amounts of time in social media platforms, gambling on the internet, viewing inappropriate sites that lead to infidelity, etc, etc…

because satan IS ATTRACTING YOU to the dust and sin…

This world and all the pleasures it offers IS temporary, meaningless in eternity ’cause it’s passing away…

All flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of the field… The grass withers, and the flower fades, but the Word of the LORD abides forever. ~Is 40:6b, 8

For if God did not spare the angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to pits of nether gloom to be kept until the judgment;

If He did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a herald of righteousness, with seven other persons, when He brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly;

If by turning the cities of Sodom and Gomor’ah to ashes He condemned them to extinction and made them an example to those who were to be ungodly; and He rescued righteous Lot, greatly distressed by the licentiousness of the wicked…

THEN the LORD knows how to rescue the godly from trial (see Rev 3:10-11), and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment, and especially those who indulge in the lust of defiling passion and despise authority~2Peter 2:4-10 

Because Mom reminds us of this TRUTH that can apply to ALL those who REPENT and RETURN to God with their whole hearts – even at the last minute (Read Mt 20: 1-16):

YOU ARE CALLED to HOLINESS and CREATED for HEAVEN; therefore, SEEK HEAVEN and the things of Heaven. Thank you for having responded to my call. ~Monthly Message, Medjugorje, January 25, 2018, to Marjia, emphasis added by me.

Got Prayer? Visit this PAGE for a suggested format that can be adapted to your schedule so that you can put more prayer into your life.

My final offering comes from my favorite fellow blogger:

Medjugorje is becoming the center of attention even more these days as the Vatican has recently permitted “official” pilgrimages to the apparition site. As well, a report of the papal Commission studying Medjugorje was leaked to the press revealing not only that the first apparitions are deemed supernatural, but that there is a fairly positive outlook on the remaining. At the same time as the Vatican seemingly moves toward a positive position, some Catholic apologists are strangely attacking (with tired old arguments) what is arguably the greatest site for conversions since the Acts of the Apostles.

Time to buckle down… batten down the hatches… make ready for the storm…

Posted by Anne Elizabeth on January 17, 2018

Come all who labor and I will give you rest. ~Mt 11:28

In a book titled, The Battle Plan for Prayer, the Kendricks write:

When you align your goals with His Kingdom goals, He promises to provide everything needed for your life to flourish. ~pg 131

Or put in another way:

…Seek ye first His Kingdom and His righteousness, and all things shall be yours as well. ~Mt 6:33

Sacred Heart of Jesus, Immaculate Heart of Mary, please pray for us.

In December of last year (2017), Our Lady made her annual appearance to the youngest of the Medjugorje seers, Jacov, and reminded us of something VERY IMPORTANT, that all of us need to do, especially NOW and in the coming storm. She said:

Dear children, Today, on this day of grace, I am calling you to ask the Lord for the gift of faith. My children, decide for God and begin to live and to believe in that what God is calling you to. To believe, my children, means to surrender your lives into God’s hands – the hands of the Lord who created you and who loves you immeasurably. ~Monthly Message, in part, Dec 25th, Jacov of Medjugorje, emphasis added by me.

Which, of course, was further confirmation for me – and indeed for all those who have received and embraced the call to fulltime Prayer and Fasting; but also to those who will continue in the world to be an example of faithfulness to the Gospel message.

Mom said in her July, 2017, message:

My heart is suffering. Sins are multiplying, they are too numerous.

And since the world has made no visible improvement in its practice of morality and the respect and dignity for every human life, then the above message is even MORE meaningful. I mean, one only has to took at our insane weather patterns to know that things are not right. Nature, herself, is now in the throws of confusion.

rumors…earthquakes…plagues…nation against nation…

So, when Mom came for her monthly appearance on Jan 2, 2018, to Mirjana and gave us a different kind of message, I knew things are about to become really interesting and all that time before (2017, but my time of response for me: August to December) was truly prepatory, and now is the time to be ready and stay focused on Christ.

A BRIEF RECAP

The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches that:

Before Christ’s second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers.  

How much confusion is there now, in the Church, with regards to Cardinals and Bishops flat out ignoring the teachings of Christ and instead manipulating His words to suit their agendas? PRAY for our shepherds!!!

The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth will unveil the “mystery of iniquity” in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth.

Remember, brethren, we cannot have REAL PEACE with false mercy. We cannot ask GOD to BLESS US and yet be living in GRAVE SIN

The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of His Messiah come in the flesh~CCC§675

Mom’s July message continues…

But with the help of those who are humblemodest, filled with Love (aka GOD), hidden

But when you PRAY, go into your room and shut the door and PRAY to your Father Who is in secret; and your Father Who sees in secret will reward you. ~Mt 6:6

Come , My people, enter your chambers and shut your doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until the wrath has passed… ~Isaiah 26:20

Message continues…

holy (need to pray for this daily), my heart will triumph! ~July 2, 2017, message in part, emphasis added by me.

Those of us called to pray have a really AWESOME opportunity to participate in the most AMAZING event ever recorded in human history second only to the Resurrection of Christ! Which is why the Church further teaches in Catechism No 677:

The Church will enter the GLORY of the Kingdom ONLY through this FINAL PASSOVER, when she will follow her LORD in His death AND resurrection…

For behold, the LORD is coming forth out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity, and the earth will disclose the blood shed upon her, and will no more cover her slain. ~Isaiah 26:21

But he who endures to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, as a testimony to the nations;… ~Mt 24:13, 14  

Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the Kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear~Mt 13:43

What are we called to do, then, as events will continue to unfold, shaking the faith of many believers? How are we to keep our focus on Christ? The message of July continues…

Therefore, my children, LOVE ALL those who DO NOT KNOW my Son so that through PRAYER and the LOVE that comes through PRAYER, [that] they may become better; that the goodness that is in them may win. ~July 2, 2017, in part message to Mirjana, emphasis added by me.

The prayer of a righteous man has great power in its effects. ~James 5:16b

Again, to quote the Kendricks book, A Battle Plan for Prayer, they point out:

It is HIS PERFECT PLAN that will bring Him the most pleasure…what will yield Him the MOST GLORY… GOD’s Will IS to ADVANCE HIS KINGDOM. ~pg 130

Doesn’t that suggest something to us???

Be not afraid! Jesus we TRUST in you!

Be not afraid of this coming storm unless…

Yes, unless you are one of many who are participating in a moral evil and refuse to repent of it:

Many of my children are seeking consolation, but no one is offering it to them. I also see those who are doing evil… They have not come to know my Son… many souls are in sin because there are not those who [will]… pray for their conversion. ~Monthly message in part, November 2nd to Mirjana

In a book I read recently it states:

Love can never REST until all evil is over come and swallowed up in victory… until REAL PEACE, which is perfect harmony with the Law of Love, is brought to the hearts of all men everywhere.

Which to me is a reflection of the following passages:

The Son of Man will send His angels, and they will gather out of His Kingdom all causes of sin and all evildoers, and throw them into the furnace of fire; there they will weep and gnash their teeth. Mt 13:41-4

So if this is you, do you really want to delay??? I mean, living in mortal sin (read Romans 1:18-32, if your not sure what mortal sin means), doesn’t look like the best way to spend your eternity. 😦

I repeat, before we have that TRUE PEACE mentioned above and often referred to The Era of Peace, as promised at Fatima by Our Lady, the first must happen – PURIFICATION – CCC§675

Judgment

Which leads into my final offering for this particular post… The January 2, 2018, message to Mirjana as referenced above. There is MUCH to be said about it, so please take a moment to open THIS PAGE which has corresponding scriptures with the underlined parts, all emphasis is added by me, all is based on what I see around me and in the world:

Dear children, When love is beginning to disappear on earth, when the way of salvation is not being found,…

I, the mother, am coming to help you to come to know true faith – living and profound – so as to help you to truly love.

As a mother, I am longing for your mutual love, goodness, and purity. My desire is that you be just and that you love each other.

My children, be joyful in your soul, be pure, be children.

My Son used to say that He loves to be among pure hearts, because pure hearts are always young and joyful.

My Son said to you to forgive and to love each other. I know that this is not always easy. Suffering makes you grow in spirit. For you to spiritually grow all the more, you must sincerely and truly forgive and love.

Many of my children on earth do not know my Son, they do not love Him; but you who do love my Son, you who carry Him in your heart, pray, pray and in praying feel my Son beside you. May your soul breathe in His spirit.

I am among you and am speaking about little and great things.

I will not grow tired speaking to you about my Son – the true love. Therefore, my children, open your hearts to me. Permit me to lead you as a mother. Be apostles of the love of my Son and of me. As a mother I implore you not to forget those whom my Son has called to lead you [PRAY for our shepherds!]. Carry them in your heart and pray for them. Thank you.
