Got Jesus in YOUR boat???

Posted by Anne Elizabeth on July 13, 2018

Only two people responded to my request for help. Having dealt with that disappointment, I’ve seen God  work in a surprising way. As I continue to deal with declining health, I thought this might be a good time to republish a few writings that hold good meaning. 

Yes, we are in the days of “increased wickedness”, so it is obvious that Jesus’ words are coming to pass, “the love of men’s hearts will grow cold.” (Mt 24:12) Yet, those who hold tight to Christ will find themselves in a SAFE Harbor… Though I’ve said many times lately, “Jesus, I don’t understand why. But you’re will be done, not mine.” I’ve also been reminded that Jesus IS FAITHFUL and TRUE (BOTH/AND = good Theology!)
Jesus, I TRUST in YOU!

PREPARE!

Got Jesus in YOUR boat?

Are YOU on the Ark of the New Convenant?

*** 33 Days of Morning Glory!

Time is very short

If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God… (1)

Put to death therefore what is earthly in you; fornication, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.  On account of these, the wrath of God is coming(2)

We’ve done this to ourselves, by our own actions, we’ve forced the Hand of God to come upon us…

And YET, for those who BELIEVE, and are willing to intercede for the evils done in this world…

Continue steadfast in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving… Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  (3)

The coming of the lawless one by the activity of Satan will be with all power and with pretended signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are to perish, because they refused to love the TRUTH and so be saved… (4)

Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them… when anything is exposed by the LIGHT it becomes visible… Therefore it is said, “Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light.”(5)

…[Make] the most of [this] time, because the days are EVIL(6)

Therefore, God sends upon them a strong delusion, to make them believe what is false, so that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (7)

For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ.  And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.  So it is not strange if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness.  Their end will correspond to their deeds. (8)

Now the works of the flesh are plain: fornication, impurity, licentiousness, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, anger, selfishness, dissension, party spirit, envy, drunkenness, carousing, and the like… those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. (9)

[Therefore], be watchful, stand firm in your FAITH, be COURAGEOUS, be STRONG.  Let all that you do be done in LOVE. (10)

Let not sin… reign in your mortal bodies, to make you obey their passions.  Do not yield your members to sin as instruments of wickedness, but yield yourselves to God as [people] who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments of righteousness. (11)

Changes are coming that will catch many off guard…

Got Jesus in YOUR boat?

When people say, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as travail comes upon a woman with child, and there will be no escape. (12)

The Last Hour…

A Month Devoted to the Sacred Heart of Jesus…

Posted by Anne Elizabeth on June 8, 2018

“I have come that you might have LIFE!”

I begin with some necessary reads…

The Joy of Jesus

The Parallel DeceptionTIMELY!

Real Time : and the signs of the times in our world today

In the post before the last I wrote on the subject of the Two Hearts (Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary), and how God has provided us with this devotion to prepare us for the coming purification that will be for ALL the earth and its people.

Oddly enough, before I was granted the time to sit down and type, several wonderful resources came my way to make this post as meaningful as possible… 

An e-mail from an apostolate I subscribe to gave a good description of there where this devotion came from…

Then the Monthly Message arrived and gave further food for thought and confirmed what many have already warned…Change is upon us!

And then lastly, Mark posted a blog that ties all this together.  To quote Hannable from the A-Team, “I love it when a plan comes together!”…Of course, God’s plans ALWAYS comes together. 🙂

FIRST: THE DEVOTION

Why THIS devotion?  An additional question, Why did Christ die for us?

ANSWER…

“In this fundamental devotion we have a synthesis of all the mystery of our redemption — of an infinite love that was ready to suffer death and be despised for our salvation.”

And how does God’s people choose to respond to this overwhelming gift of LOVE?…

“In return, He finds in so many human hearts nothing but hardness, forgetfulness, contempt and ingratitude: Jesus loves and yet is not loved;

“You cannot give what you do not have…” Fireproof, 2009, source: Google Pics

I recently re-watched a favorite movie of mine, Fireproof , that has a wonderful line in it.  If you haven’t already seen the picture, no worries, this won’t spoil a thing for you.  But Caleb Holt, the main character, is trying to show love and respect for his wife and his wife isn’t responding the way Caleb thinks she should.  So in his frustration he asks his Dad,

How am I suppose to show love over and over again to someone who constantly rejects me?!”

And his dad, while standing at the foot of a wooden cross in the clearing where they’re at, responds with,

“That’s a very good question.”

“His love is not even known because we will not deign to receive the gifts by which He proves His love, or listen to the secret and tender words of love that He wishes to speak to our hearts. ~Monsignor Ignacio Barreiro-Carámbula, HLI’s Interim President, July 1, 2011.

Yes, the world is the same.  Christ demonstrates His LOVE for us over and over again, and yet how many of His creation reject Him and His gift of LOVE?

Following the teachings of Saint Claude De La Colombière, we see how the Heart of Christ is always burning with love for men (symbolized by the flames coming from His Heart as we see in many paintings), always open to shower graces and blessings upon us, always touched by our sorrows, always eager to impart its treasures to us and give Himself to us, always ready to receive us, to be our refuge and dwelling place and our heaven even in this world. ~Ibid…emphasis added.

“Come all who are weary, and I will give you rest.”

FOR THOSE ALREADY IN SERVICE…

In this month’s message, Jesus reminds those who have answered the call to His service that we must…

act as holy hands and hearts. Your holy hands and your holy hearts are used to gently tap others, into service, into healing and into love for Me and all of the Father’s children on earth.

How earnestly I ask the Father for greater blessings for you. How earnestly I prompt you, through the Spirit, to continue on in service.

For it is in our service that Jesus is able to work through us to reach others…

You see…not only do I move through you to others, but I minister to you in a continuous way so that you are sustained…. I want you to understand that if you say no to Me, there are others who will not be comforted and others who will not be blessed and instructed through you.

So we must continue to resolve to GROW in HOLINESS and continue on a DAILY BASIS to renew our devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus AND to the Immaculate Heart of His/and our Mother…

“The heart that resembles that of Christ more than any other is without a doubt the Heart of Mary, His Immaculate Mother, and for this very reason the liturgy holds them up together for our veneration. Responding to the Virgin’s invitation at Fatima, let us entrust the whole world to her Immaculate Heart… so that it may experience the merciful love of God and know true peace.” ~Pope Benedict XVI, Sunday June 5, 2005, Angules Greeting.

We’re never alone, Christ will NEVER abandon us…and not only that, He has promised extra special graces for those who serve…

I know that there are times when you need encouragement, so at this time, I will send you evidence of either your progress or of the effect of your willingness to serve on others. Look for this, dear apostles, and then you will know that I AM with you and that I AM using your presence on earth…in this time of change~Monthly Message, ‘Anne’ Lay apostle, July, 2011.

And this ON TOP OF the promised already made for those who have a devotion to His Sacred Heart…

Of the many promises Our Lord Jesus Christ did reveal to Saint Margaret Mary in favor of souls devoted to His Sacred Heart the principal ones are as follows:

1. I will give them all the graces necessary for their state of life.

2. I will give peace in their families.

3. I will console them in all their troubles.

4. I will be their refuge in life and especially in death.

5. I will abundantly bless all their undertakings.

6. Sinners shall find in my Heart the source and infinite ocean of mercy.

7. Tepid souls shall become fervent.

8. Fervent souls shall rise speedily to great perfection.

9. I will bless those places wherein the image of My Sacred Heart shall be exposed and venerated.

10. I will give to priests the power to touch the most hardened hearts.

11. Persons who propagate this devotion shall have their names eternally written in my Heart.

12. In the excess of the mercy of my Heart, I promise you that My all powerful love will grant to all those who will receive Communion on the First Fridays, for nine consecutive months, the grace of final repentance: they will not die in My displeasure, nor without receiving the sacraments; and My Heart will be their secure refuge in that last hour.

So with all of this, we have the tools to be ready for that great time of Evangelisation that will follow on the heals of the Church’s purification as taught in our Sacred History and found in the Catechism of the Catholic Church…

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

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 all nations; and then the end will come. ~Mt24: 13-14

Mark’s post is a VITAL FOLLOW-UP to this post and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND reading it…

The Hour of the Laity

I pray that God will reach out to many wandering hearts and many servants whose hearts have grown cold to bring His Life and His Love to all who seek Him out…

Behold, I stand at the door and knock; IF ANY ONE hears My voice and opens the door [to your heart], I will come in to him and eat with him and he with Me. ~Rev 3:20

Finally…

As the heavenly music continues to sound in my ears, I pass on this wonderful Blog-cast that reminds us the NEED to REMAIN in GOD and FOLLOW HIS COMMANDS with all our heart. The Eucharist IS our FOCUS!
