When the Son of Man Comes-the Warning Part II

Come Holy Spirit of Truth

Concluding with what we began in the first part of this post, related to the message of 11/25/12 given by Our Lady to the world which said:

“Dear children! In this time of grace, I call all of you to renew prayer. Open yourselves to Holy Confession so that each of you may accept my call with the whole heart. I am with you and I protect you from the ruin of sin, but you must open yourselves to the way of conversion and holiness, that your heart may burn out of love for God. Give Him time and He will give Himself to you and thus, in the will of God you will discover the love and the joy of living. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

Our Lady reminds us that we are in a time of grace. She said, “I call all of you to renew prayer… The term ALL OF YOU MEANS EVERY HUMAN BEING. She is leaving no body out. Every human being is called to turn to God in prayer. When we pray, we are open to her if we are praying with the heart. If we are praying with the heart, then we are able to examine ourselves and realize that we need holy confession, so that every human being will begin to purge from his heart sin and be open to grace to be “able to accept her call with whole hearts.

The Mother of God, your Mother and my Mother is here now in this world. She comes from eternity, God’s time in Heaven to enter into time in this hour of tribulation to protect us from ruin and sin, (as she said in the message above) and from satan who is cunning and leading many hearts to perdition, (message of 10/25/12)

She cannot help any of her children if they are not open to her, because she will not force herself over anyone’s free will.. We have to desire this with our whole heart to be open, our hearts must burn in love for God. Think about this. A heart that burns in love is a heart filled with the flames of love, it is refined, made holy and pure. We only have need to look at the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart to understand. These Two hearts are flaming hearts filled with the fire of the Holy Spirit.

Make our hearts like unto thine

The Two Hearts of Jesus and mercy however, have been pierced, scorned, unloved, wounded, mocked, humiliated, and suffered all kinds of indifference and tortures. Both of the Two Hearts of Jesus and Mary never faltered in faith, or for their love of God the Father and neighbor. Their hearts are always fixed on the work of redemption, and overcame such trials and triumph over the sins of the world.

In their humanity they grew into holiness; (Lk. 2) They grew in wisdom and in stature with a deep knowledge and understanding of God. Blessed Mother had 33 years of life with her Son on earth. 30 of those years were her Nazareth time alone with him in complete intimacy with God. Until the final (3) years when Jesus began His public mission for the salvation of souls. We know this by faith, and tradition of the Catholic faith. They grew in the Holy Spirit until they were ready to stand firm for the day that came when Jesus would suffer and die on the cross for the sins of men while Our Lady was able to stand by and profess, ‘Amen so be it.”

So here we are today, 31+ years of Medjugorje. Our Nazareth years with the Mother of God who is forming us in her Son, in the same spirit she was given in her earthly life. 31 years of a time of grace where the veil of heaven is lifted so that we can come to know the Lord and encounter Him in our prayer.

Our Lady has come to us. The grace we have is her time with us. This is our Nazareth time with her. She gives herself freely with open arms to those who are open to her, and to give us her Son, so that Jesus her Son will be so called impregnated in our souls and in the heart, and grow to maturity in us.

She comes as the Mother of the New Advent filled with the Word of God, to tell the world that God exists. She magnifies the Lord as the Woman clothed with the Sun in her appearance, that is with the light of God to give light to the world that God exists. She has come to crush the head of satan with her heel, that is her virtues, her way of holiness living in human souls. She has come to put emnity between the seed of satan, and has been planting her little seeds all over the globe.

I am leading on the path which leads to heaven…

If you have gone to Medjugorje, the seeds of Our Lady’s virtues have been planted in you. You dear children of Mary are called to cultivate and bring life to the seed through prayer and sacramental living.

You see, if we live the message as her witness, sin will be defeated in you, and virtue will triumph, which opposes the proud and lawless one.

Time has to be made for God to accomplish her work in the heart. Time given to God allows the Lord to plant this seeds of life in the heart. If we are not praying we are not open. If we are not going to confession, then the marks of sin remain on the soul and leads one into further darkness, and farther away from God. There are many who are withholding as well in the confessional, not confessing deep rooted sins, which still leaves the soul into darkness.

If we go to Confession, our souls is returned to sanctifying grace, made clean in the mercy of God, then God freely gives Himself to the soul and the Kingdom of God comes upon him, then Jesus will come into the areas of the heart where He wants new life to be formed in us.

When one is living with God – he has everything. Life without God has no future or hope. But when one is living in the will of God He discovers the love and joy of living, just as our Lady said above in her message.

Now friends, look around you; for the day of tribulation is here and covers the globe – assaulting everyone on earth as the Lord said it would. Is there anyone who is not on the cross today?

Now we will see who can withstand this time of tribulation, and who remains faithful to God in this YEAR OF FAITH. We have a great opportunity in this time to exercise faith, and watch God work His greatest miracles. It was faith that moved the heart of Jesus to such miracles. This is a time to go deeper in faith and be a sign and witness to faith and the presence of Our Lady in the world especially to those who do not know the love of God.

The Lord said to pray int he gospels, pray that you are able to withstand and have the strength to escape the tribulation. Ask the Lord to pray for you in this way, as He did with His apostles, knowing their weakness and knowing ours. The day is coming friends when the Lord will reveal Himself to the world. The great sign is coming when every human being will look upon Him Whom they have pierced and all will see himself in truth as the Lord sees them.

This is my beloved Son, listen to Him

Will you be able to stand firm before the Son of Man in your state in life today? This is the question you must ask.

Some will die of fright when this day comes. Some will tear at the flesh and will not be able to endure. But that day is imminent and looming over the world.

The answer is to walk with Our Lady in this time, who has said so often, “I am here to help you.” She will clothe us in her holy garments, for the day that comes.

Rejoice! Your redemption is at hand. The Kingdom of God is near. Come Lord Jesus!

When the Son of Man Comes-the Warning – Part 1

I am granting the world a time of mercy (Diary of St. Faustina)

In the past couple of days I have been resting with the Lord and there have been a few things that have just been repeating within me. I was determined to understand and begged the Lord for His light. So after much time in contemplation the Lord seemed to have heard me in prayer, and I received a deeper understanding of Our Lady’s 11/25/12 message, which on the surface would appear to be again just a normal message. I was able to see this message in a whole different light.

As a reminder, this is the message Our Lady just gave to the world on 11/25/12 pending the 2nd of the month message to come: I encourage the reader to take this to their own private prayer.

“Dear children! In this time of grace, I call all of you to renew prayer. Open yourselves to Holy Confession so that each of you may accept my call with the whole heart. I am with you and I protect you from the ruin of sin, but you must open yourselves to the way of conversion and holiness, that your heart may burn out of love for God. Give Him time and He will give Himself to you and thus, in the will of God you will discover the love and the joy of living. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

I will be making this post in (2) parts, to give the reader time to sort and reflect for themselves.

We have been hearing the readings of the Mass which conclude the liturgical year with the Feast of Christ the King, and the reign of Jesus Christ and the Kingdom of God.

However today’s reading in the gospel of Luke ended with the words “your redemption is at hand. Luke 21

From the beginning of the liturgical year, the Lord has been giving me a word in my private prayer. We have as a family have gone through much tribulation in this past year, and I would often say to the Lord light heartedly, “I’m not feeling very redeemed.” So I have been very perplexed by what He meant when He said this, trying to understand what this is all about. Today I felt like I just wanted to put my foot down and try to understand what He was saying.

So I dove a little deeper into Luke’s gospel chapter 21:25-36, where we are today in the daily reading awaiting the reign of Jesus Christ our Soverign King. The Lord led me to begin with verse 21:25 which said,

“…There will be signs in the sun, the moon and the stars and on earth nations will be in dismay, perplexed by the roaring of the sea and the waves…”

I thought ‘YES, this is is all occurring now especially coming from a huge mega storm Hurricane Sandy on the east coast, and all the more events; so yes there are signs in the heavens. Those who have been to Medjguroje have seen many phenomena especially with the dancing sun, falling stars and the moon miracles that have occurred.

Of course science would give its own explanation forgoing that God is the master of the Universe and of Creation, and all these things occur by His design. There have been many sightings of the face of Jesus, Blessed Mother, angels, etal in the clouds and amidst many storms, that are posted all over the place, and we can say personally we have witnessed them ourselves in person.

So it is safe to say, yes, these things are occurring. So I went on reflecting:

“…People will die of fright in anticipation of what is coming upon the world for the powers of heaven will be shaken, and then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory…” (Luke 21)

Your redemption is at hand

“…But when these signs begin to happen, stand erect and raise your heads because your redemption is at hand. (the Lord gives the example of the sign of the fig tree); in the same way when you see these things happening know that the Kingdom of God is near. Amen I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things have taken place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away…”

This discourse the Lord gave to His apostles before He was about to be put to death.

I recalled the word of God to St. Faustina when He said that His Kingdom on earth is His life in the human soul. (Diary 1784) So I began to understand this reading in this light. But deep within, I knew there was more to this, and took to heart the close of this discourse from the Words of Jesus:

“…Beware that your hearts do not become drowsy from carousing and drunkenness, and the anxieties of daily life and that day catch you by surprise, like a trip. For that day will assult everyone who lives on the face of the earth. Be vigilant at all times, and pray that you have the strength to escape the tribulation that are imminent and to stand before the Son of Man…”

For anyone who has eyes to see, or ears to hear and a listening heart, we would see these days as the Lord speaks are occurring, by the “sign of the times in which we are living.” Our Lady often says, “see the sign of the times in which you are living…” See is the key word, look and see what is happening.

Our Lady is here to help us in this time, preparing us to meet her Son, preparing us to encounter Him, but maybe something more. She has said often we must pray to comprehend why she is with us and to comprehend her message. The Holy Spirit will bring light in the prayer, when the heart is open to hear what she is saying. Our Lady is only giving hints of the purpose for her coming, and we are called to ask, seek and find.

Personally, I am affirmed that this is the time of tribulation for this generation now by the signs that have been given.

However, throughout history there have been many tribulation times for the Church for certain generations of a people who strayed from the path of God.

But today Our Lady makes it clear that this time is different. This time is her time she said. This is a time of grace (she just said that in her message of 11/25/12 again. This is a time of mercy, said the Lord to St. Faustina who was told that she would prepare the world for His final coming.

So there is clearly something unique about this time we are living in the present day. And above all, for this generation, Our Lady has revealed that satan is unchained on many occasions; it seems that all of hell is unleashed on the earth, affirming the words of God who said above, “…for that day will assault the everyone who lives on the face of the earth; be vigilant at all times…”

I will conclude here and continue in part II
