Sept. 2, 2013 Medjugorje Message for Unbelievers

Mirjana’s September 2, 2013

Dear children; I love you all. All of you, all of my children, all of you are in my heart. All of you have my motherly love and I desire to lead all of you to come to know God’s joy. This is why I am calling you.

I need humble apostles who, with an open heart, will accept the Word of God and help others to comprehend the meaning of their life alongside God’s word.

To be able to do this, my children, through prayer and fasting you must learn to listen with the heart and to learn to keep submitting yourselves. You must learn to keep rejecting everything that distances you from God’s word and to yearn only for that which draws you closer to it.

Do not be afraid. I am here. You are not alone. I am imploring the Holy Spirit to renew and strengthen you. I am imploring the Holy Spirit that, as you help others, you too may be healed. I am imploring Him that, through Him, you may be God’s children and my apostles.

For the sake of Jesus, for the sake of my Son, love those whom he has called and long for the blessing only from the hands which He has consecrated.

Do not permit evil to come to reign. Anew I repeat – only alongside your shepherds will my heart triumph. Do not permit evil to separate you from your shepherds. Thank you.

Do not be afraid

Do not be afraid

"I want to be a sign to others"

“I want to be a sign to others”

“Dear children! Also today, the Most High is giving me the grace to be with you and to lead you towards conversion. Every day I am sowing and am calling you to conversion, that you may be prayer, peace, love – the grain that by dying will give birth a hundredfold. I do not desire for you, dear children, to have to repent for everything that you could have done but did not want to. Therefore, little children, again, with enthusiasm say: ‘I want to be a sign to others.’ Thank you for having responded to my call.”

Freedom comes under the Law

Freedom comes under the Law

Freedom comes under the Law

Praise be Jesus Christ! I’ve often said I do not write unless I feel called to write. Today the Lord was clear that He wanted this teaching that He gave me to be shared, especially in this Nation where the Constitutional Law is always threatened and under attack. It makes sense now why freedom and liberty are at stake. Here is why as I understood it….

The Lord led me to the scripture of Galatians 3. I reviewed the whole chapter, trying to understand what was being said to me in this whole reading where St. Paul admonishes the Galatian people for their lack of understanding and returning to their former way of life. He reminds them that they are Christs’ body and that the error of the Jews was following the letter of the law” and not the “heart of the law”. Sounds like a form of religiosity which many of us fall into.

The Law of God, has been established to show His people, what sin is. It is a separation of the wheat from the chaff so to say, God’s children vs. satan’s children.

However even Law abiding sinners; even though we commit sin against the Law, the Lord has established his covenant with the forefathers and prophets before us. The promise of God, ie the covenant will never be broken as in this scripture as St. Paul declares. St. Paul speaks of the forefathers of his time with Abraham; but the covenant continues in Isaac, Jacob, Moses, David all the way to the fulfillment of the Law in Jesus Christ, His only begotten Son.

The Lord told Abraham to take his “only son” Isaac with him for a sacrifice. The only son of Abraham I thought. Wait a minute, there is Ishmael. He is a son of Abraham also but the Lord seems to be saying, “not so”. But the word clearly said, “your only son” Isaac.

Isaac is the son of the promise or the covenant and legitimate son under the marriage law which ultimately is the line of the chosen people to Jesus Christ. The son of the covenant is not through a concubine. Even though Abraham sinned against the Lord by having relations with Hagar this did not stop the Lord from fulfilling his covenant conceiving his son Isaac.

I have learned that once God speaks, it is finished. Once God begins something Our Lady has said in Medjugorje, nothing can stop it. When the Lord speaks, something is done. No man on earth can stop what the Lord begins no matter how hard he tries. Man may get in the way and the spoken word may be delayed or have its time, but if it is spoken, its already done in eternity. In this light then we can see how the bible is a living Word spoken Word of God. Its eternal and is the same from the beginning when the words were first spoken and then written down.

May God thy gold refine

May God thy gold refine

Now a greater light came in this understanding to explain further the truth. I thank the Lord for His goodness, and I leave the rest to you for your own prayer and discernment.

It has been touted on many occasions that the illegitimate children of Abraham say that their law is above the law of God and the law of this land. The Constitution of the United States of America (and I am not one who is well versed in history by no means); written by the forefathers of this great nation has her foundation established in the union of the ‘United States’ – that is states united. The Laws of this Nation are founded on the laws and principals of the Commandments of God, rooted in Christian principals.

one Nation under God

one Nation under God

The Commandments of God are written in stone from the biblical text; meaning they are firm, NEVER to be changed or amended. No man has the power to change the commandments of God, nor will they ever have the power to change or delete the commandments of God as many man made institutions are still trying to omit in this time. These commandments are the Eternal Law, bound up and sealed in heaven, and God’s Almighty Justice is governed by them.

The forefathers of this nation bound to the Laws of God as Christian men, formed the Constitution in this principal.

The Lord continued in prayer to show an image of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence as a document of gold and covered in light as if it is itself a covenant between God and man, with the forefathers of this nation.

(Why was the Lord showing me this, I am asking). I then began to understand, that the enemy through the people who oppose the Lord and His laws is making a statement that the Constitution is an obstacle to them in what they want to accomplish with their agenda and their anti-Christ policies. Praise God it is so! May the Lord remember His promise He made to our forefathers which He established in this land and which is also consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Establish justice and unity

Establish justice and unity

Let our prayer be of such that Jesus Christ the universal and eternal covenant between God and man who poured out His precious blood for all generations may continue to bless and sanctify through His most precious blood the world and this great nation, that we may be a people as it was declared at the first day of independence, “one Nation UNDER GOD indivisible, with liberty and justice for all…may God thy gold refine”…through her purification (justification) to be a light once more to the nations.

Gal. 3:23-29, 4:6-7 “Before faith came, we were held in custody under, confined for faith that was to be revealed. Consequently the law was our disciplinary for Christ that we might be justified by faith. But now that faith has come we are no longer under a disciplinarian . For through faith you are all children of God in Christ Jesus. For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourself with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free person, there is not male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendents, heirs according to the promise…As proof that you are children, God sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts crying out, ‘Abba Father!’. So you are no longer a slave, but a child and if a child then also an heir, through God…”

Freedom comes under the Law; freedom comes in Truth.

“Dear children, today I invite you to pray for peace. At this time, peace is threatened in a special way and I am seeking from you to renew fasting and prayer in your families. Dear children, I desire you to grasp the seriousness of the situation and that much of what will happen depends on your prayers, and you are praying a little bit! Dear children, I am with you and I am inviting you to begin to pray and fast seriously as in the first days of my coming. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (7/25/91)

Are we taking the message serious yet? Our future depends on our response to God’s call to conversion and our prayer. Live the message!

Pray little children, pray without ceasing until your heart opens to God’s love. I am with you and I intercede for all of you and I pray for your conversion.

Thank you for having responded to my call.

You are Far From my Heart

You are still far from me.  Work on your conversion all the more

Dear children, Pray, pray, keep praying until your heart opens in faith as a flower opens to the warm rays of the sun. This is a time of grace which God gives you through my presence but you are far from my heart, therefore, I call you to personal conversion and to family prayer. May Sacred Scripture always be an incentive for you. I bless you all with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.

How sad it is to hear that after 32 + years Our Lady is still saying that we as Church are still far from her. Conversion is most important in this time, especially in the family.

Pray, pray, pray, and pray unceasingly. This is non-stop prayer. This is what is most important in this time. There is nothing more important. We do not know how long the Lord will permit this time of grace. Therefore, pray and console the sorrowful heart of your Mother.

Ave Maria!

Death of a Wolf – The Affects of Sin on our souls

The world of today has become numb to sin

I pulled the following reflection from Sr. Emmanuel @ “Children of Medjugorje” and the cause of sin to the soul. Very enlightening.

Death of the Wolf.

On August 12th, an American priest illustrated a striking story in his homily, a kind of parable about how sin affects and harms the soul. “In Alaska, the Eskimos have a unique way of both living and protecting themselves. Now when there is a danger of wolves, the Eskimos go out and scope the area and its circumference where they have sighted the wolf. Then, they take a 10-12 inch blade, and they cover it in blood and they freeze it. Again they cover it with blood and freeze it. They do it a third and fourth time. Once this process is finished, they take the blade and visit the site where the wolf’s tracks have been located. They lodge the blade in the ground so that it cannot be moved, and they sprinkle blood around it in order to attract the wolf. Then they wait.

The wolf comes around. He likes what he sees and he likes what he smells. He first licks the blood on the snow. Attracted by what he tastes, he draws closer to the blade. He begins to lick it. He licks through the first layer and then through the second. By the time he reaches the third layer, his tongue becomes numb due to the ice. Little does he know what waits for him beneath that last layer of blood! He licks and licks without realizing that he begins to cut his tongue to pieces. By the time he finishes and takes one last gulp, he swallows his own tongue and inevitably chokes to death. The next day the Eskimos come and pick up the carcass and enjoy safety once again.”

Like wolves, we are attracted, affected and eventually destroyed by sin. We seek immediate pleasure – this is the problem of our society, which is especially affecting the youth. The media makes the habit of calling what is good, evil and what is evil, good. As the tongue of the wolf becomes numb by the frozen blood, in the same way the world of today has become numb to sin. People do not know what sin is anymore and do not recognize where evil is; they do not believe that sin exists. Sin is attractive. We like what we see. We like what we smell. We blindly follow our senses and in so doing we find the blade hidden there. Without Jesus in our life, before long, we will end up like the wolf.

Last May, Our Lady said, “I, as a mother, desire to save you from restlessness, despair and eternal exile. My Son, by His death on the Cross, showed how much He loves you; He sacrificed Himself for your sake and the sake of your sins. Do not keep rejecting His sacrifice and do not keep renewing His sufferings with your sins! Do not keep shutting the doors of Heaven to yourselves!” And in June,”My children, great is the responsibility upon you. I desire that by your example you help sinners regain their sight, enrich their poor souls and bring them back into my embrace. Therefore, pray, pray, fast and confess regularly. If receiving my Son in the Eucharist is the center of your life, then do not be afraid, you can do everything.

“…I call you to conversion and holiness…”

“Dear children! Also today I call you to conversion and to holiness. God desires to give you joy and peace through prayer but you, little children, are still far away – attached to the earth and to earthly things. Therefore, I call you anew: open your heart and your sight towards God and the things of God – and joy and peace will come to reign in your hearts. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

As we enter the eve of Pentecost, (for the sake of those who do not know it is the birthday of the universal Christian Church). The promised Advocate that Jesus spoke of, the Holy Spirit comes to bring life to the Church and moves human hearts to God bringing them to conversion. I have to admit, I found myself in anticipation, wondering what Our Lady’s message would be.

I have spent this whole novena of Pentecost in recovery from a recent surgery I had that has kept me down for several days. It has allowed me to enter into the suffering of Christ uniting my own suffering with his, embracing my human weakness in infirmity, and having something else to offer so that the Lord may pour out his grace all the more over His bride.

To most, Our Lady’s message probably seems not too much out of the ordinary. But we should never under estimate words that come from Heaven. Keep in mind, the Mother of God never acts on her own. She is SENT by God. She is conveying this message to the world that comes from God Himself.

Therefore we have to look at the word as a living word in the present moment. Heaven is on a set schedule, and is determined to change this wayward human race around to once more living as a people of God as in the first days when Christ entered time.

The first part of the message said, “Dear children! ALSO TODAY I CALL YOU TO CONVERSION AND TO HOLINESS.”

Conversion – I looked up the definition of conversion. I found (9) references to this word. They are listed below and pulled from this list what this word conversion could possibly mean for you the reader in your state in life:

The noun CONVERSION has 9 senses:
1. an event that results in a transformation
4. a spiritual enlightenment causing a person to lead a new life
6. a change of religion
9. the act of changing from one use or function or purpose to another

Some may be called to complete transformation in their spiritual life. Some may be called to transformation in the way they are living our their vocation. Some may be called to change their religion seeking deeper truth. Some may be called to complete change of lifestyle.

Come follow me

Conversion for me is to grow more in the virtue of love. Therefore I move on to the next call in this message, as she did not only says we are called to conversion, but also to HOLINESS.

1. Sacredness
2. Purity
3. righteousness, piety
4. Virtuous

These are just some of the words that describe the word Holiness. But in all, holiness is a way of life. The catechism of the Catholic Church says that ALL CHRISTIANS ARE CALLED TO HOLINESS.

At the end of the book of revelation, speaking about the kingdom of God, it says, “nothing unclean will enter…”

Therefore, there are many, many biblical hints to describe what holiness may be. In my own understanding, I see it as living a life of virtue. Our Lady is the immaculate model of living virtue in the flesh. If we want to know what holiness looks like we need to go to the perfect image given to man for our example.

Holiness comes in identity; that is knowing who you really are.

We forget that the number one driving sin of man is pride. The opposite of pride is humility. This could be one area of practice that we can begin TODAY as our Lady said, to grow in the virtue of humility. The Litany of Humility has all kinds of good points to begin with in stripping us of our self love. (Keep in mind that I am only touching briefly on this subject and still trying to keep this a simple as possible.)

Another way of holiness is putting to life the Beatitude way of living, meditating on the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew’s gospel, chapter 5. Plenty there to work on for one striving to perfection.

We need to listen in the heart however, to where God is calling us to begin our conversion. St. John the Baptist said, I must decrease, so that He may increase. A part of me has to die, so that more of Jesus can live in me.

Our Lady made no bones, that we her children, we the world are still clinging to earth and earthly things.

Folks when I hear these words, I hear that the world needs to be stripped of all attachments to sin. If we are attached to material things, then we are clinging to false gods, which is idolatry. We are putting these things above God!

Where your treasure is, there will your heart be…

If we study our biblical history, idolatry is the number one abomination to God and great chastisements fell upon his people to purify them of their idolatry. If we cannot do it on our own, the Lord is determined to have our salvation, He will do it for us!

False gods and Idolatry needs to go!

Our Lady concludes saying, “…Therefore, I call you anew open your heart and your sight towards God and the things of God…and joy and peace will come to reign in your hearts…”

Anew she says; anew is to begin again, try again, and keep trying to work on this. Keep the eyes of your heart on Jesus, and the things of God. Things of God are heavenly things, living the sacramental life, living the commandments, living as the first Christians did all for the good of neighbor and less of self love.

Wouldn’t any Mother want their child to know joy and peace? Do you think Our Mother in heaven wants to see us in such fear, worry and anxiety especially when she knows what the Father can do for His own children. But there are requirements to attain this internal peace, and this internal joy.

Jesus said, His peace is not of this world. We have to look at this by the way He was driven to the cross. His peace and joy were never shaken. He knew Who He was. He knew what He came to do, and was determined to accomplish it.

Where are we in our Christian identity? Are we affirmed that we are Christians? How is our inner peace? Are we fearful of the future?

If we are living the call of Blessed Mother, we would be unshaken by the events occurring around us, and becoming more active in witnessing our Christian vocation and way of life and standing up for God and defending Him as children would defend their parents if they are threatened. Keep in mind how the Lord comes to our rescue when we need him. Can’t we do just a little bit of the same? We all have a part in this plan. Time to act.

I hope we can see as we reflect more on this message the wisdom in these simple words. I could go on and on, but for the sake of the ready, I will continue as the Holy Spirit continues to unveil His wisdom in this word from Heaven. LIVE THE MESSAGE!
