Aug 23rd, 2013
Our Lord and Our Lady have begun to speak again about the Middle East unrest. I believe that these words need to be published immediately.
I must speak clearly and quickly. The situation is more than urgent. The fires of Syria will spill over. They can no longer be contained. The leader is too determined. He will never surrender or agree to any compromise, even if he is surrounded by his enemies. Also, he has at his disposal great weapons that he has both stored up and that he constantly receives from outside. Third, his opposition is not a united force. They come from various groups with quite differing goals. Their hearts are not one, nor do all seek the same solution.
Syria’s leadership remains in power even though many thought that he would topple like the other leaders. He has deepened his foundation and drawn around him those who will be faithful, even if just for fear of their own lives. This is the situation today. What will tomorrow bring? That is why I speak.
Many see Syria as a contained threat. They lament that there was no concerted action taken in the beginning. However, I am not speaking about the past. It is the future that holds the greatest fire. The destruction in Syria will spill over and will begin to go beyond its borders. The fires will feed on other lands and other peoples. Again, because of the confusion among world leaders, it will become too late to respond. More people will be sacrificed to this demonic evil.
Even this phase will not be the end, but only a preparation for destruction in that area that no one can imagine. This new destruction will not come immediately but will inevitably happen.
President Obama is both confused and criticized. This is dangerous. If he acts precipitously to overcome the criticism, he will cause greater destruction to occur.
2. The Spirit’s Anointing
Aug 23rd, 2013
The heavenly Father had given Jesus definite tasks to accomplish. He had to preach, to heal , and to raise from the dead. He also had to be obedient even to his death on the cross. To fulfill the Father’s will Jesus was anointed with the Holy Spirit at his Baptism. Even before that, Jesus was led by the Spirit. That is why he knew to remain in the temple (his Father’s house) when he was 12 years old.
Jesus was quite aware of the Spirit’s anointing. He told those in the Nazareth synagogue, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor”.
He also knew that the Father would send the Paraclete, the Spirit of Truth upon the disciples. He prophesied, “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes down upon you”. He commanded the disciples not to leave Jerusalem but to wait for the Holy Spirit, the promise of the Father.
The Father had his task of creation. Jesus had his task of redemption. The Spirit has his task of sanctification. He fulfills this task every day but he needs the cooperation of the baptized to fulfill it.
3. Changed Lives
Aug 24th, 2013
The Holy Spirit brought about many miracles among the early disciples but his greatest manifestation was their changed lives. A great holiness came upon the Early Church. Each person was a new creation. The former sins were put away and goodness filled them.
They rejoiced to be with each other, to share in the prayers, the Eucharist and their common life. When people came into Jesus’ presence, they knew that they had to change their life. If not, they departed (as Judas at the Last Supper). So it was with the early community, formed by the Spirit of Jesus. The Church’s fervor called the person to goodness. The Holy Spirit used this community as his instrument in changing lives. This was the secret of the Church’s tremendous growth.
4. The Believing Community
Aug 25th, 2013
Do not be surprised at all that I reveal about my spouse, the Spirit of Jesus, because so much has been hidden for so long. Today, I will speak of the community of believers which he formed by the powers of Baptism. Much is lacking in the Church because the powers of Baptism are unknown. They are unknown because there exists no true community of believers who manifest these powers and can communicate them to the newly baptized.
Recall the scenes of the Early Church. Because of a special joy, all the believers wanted to come together. The Spirit joined their hearts in the gift of religious experiences. They knew that the Spirit was in their midst. His signs and wonders manifested him. He became present to each believer by his living flame. This is what is missing today, a community which daily experiences the fire of the Spirit and communicates this fire to new believers.
2. Syria – The Precursor
Aug 26th, 2013
What will I say about Syria? The events have begun and will lead to other more destructive events and., then, to even more destruction. The fuse has been lit and is now burning. Syria is not the place of the great future explosion or of the greatest destruction, but Syria is the precursor of these events. Syria, even with all of its turmoil does not possess the great weapons or the destructive powers possessed by other nations.
However, its role as precursor should alert everyone that the time before wide scale destruction is very short – far closer than anyone expects. Other leaders see that Syria has survived by using weapons that all the world has banned. In this sense, he is the precursor of later events.
Israel knows that it is alone and cannot firmly count on anyone. It also knows the precarious state of its own survival. It must plot its own course and its own actions. It cannot wait or hold back. It knows that it will suffer attacks and looks only to minimize the destruction.
America, oh America, you were to be the source of world peace but you have been so weakened. You have gone astray. You have neither the might nor the will to fulfill the tasks I had in store for you
5. The Mighty Rivers
Aug 26th, 2013
The Holy Spirit comes as a mighty river. The soul finds itself filled with a great joy. Tears flow. Emotions pour out. The soul feels like some divine fire pierced its heart. The soul has no doubt. No one needs to explain the Holy Spirit who now works so powerfully within.
At other times, the Spirit comes like a quiet stream. Again, the soul cannot doubt. Peace, a deep and lasting peace, covers the soul. It believes and hopes in God with no effort at all. Some divine power surrounds the soul All is different. Again, the soul knows that it abides in God’s loving hands.
There are two secrets to this great release of the Holy Spirit. First, the person must know and seek these powers. The Spirit wants to flow like a mighty river. Second, the community must believe in these powers. How can the person know unless the community believes and manifests the joy and fervor of the Spirit’s presence? I want the Church to become communities of the Holy Spirit. Anything else will completely fail. The Spirit will bring about a victory march. Without his powers, all will be defeat. This call is very deep. A superficial response loses everything.
3. Importance of Jordan
Aug 27th, 2013
I hold Israel at the center of my heart. I was born in Israel and the great events of the world’s redemption took place there.
The ring of protection around Israel is being stripped away and replaced by enemies. Israel’s most important protection is Jordan. I want you to pray for the stability of Jordan. The longer that Jordan remains stable, the safer is Israel and the more the demonic timetable is pushed back.
If Jordan remains stable, Israel will be able to plan its own defense because everything will not suddenly collapse, leaving no time for self-defense. Jordan’s border with Israel is very important. If Jordan collapses and falls under terrorist control, then Israel’s border can easily be pierced. Attacks from Lebanon and the Gaza Strip will never have the power which an attack from Jordanian territory would have. Jordan is key to Israel’s survival.
7. The Spirit Forms Community
Aug 28th, 2013
The Early Church was a community filled with great signs and wonders, the works performed by the Holy Spirit through the believers. You cannot understand these phenomena without grasping the intense life of that beginning community. Today, even Catholics do not enjoy a community. After mass, they often return to their individual lives.
In the beginning, the Spirit’s fire led the people to fuse their lives. They became a family, joined as brothers and sisters. They praised God together. They shared their stories and they gathered others. In this intense sharing, they experienced the Spirit’s powers. He healed. He prophesied. He raised up teachers and leaders. Within the community, all of these powers were expected. The people had intense faith. If they withdrew from the community, they returned to a world without faith, and they lost these manifestations. Experiencing the Spirit’s powers depends on the closeness and fervor of the community of believers.
The Spirit wants to restore these powers. Catholics must understand and be willing to join regularly with others. This is the secret of true Church renewal.
8. Gifts of Service
Aug 29th, 2013
The Holy Spirit wants to pour out these gifts of service but so many do not even know what they are or how they are received. St. Paul writes, “I do not want you to be in ignorance of the spiritual gifts” (1Cor.12:1). This ignorance is widespread and believers do not come together. How can a person use a gift of service when there is nobody to serve? These gifts flourish when believers know about them and gather in the Spirit.
At Medjugorje, I spoke often of these little groups of prayer, but who has heard my plea? So, I make it again. The renewal of the Church depends totally upon the Holy Spirit. He wants to be known and to show forth his power. He will pour out these powerful gifts if believers come together.
Satan wants to isolate the believer and to immerse him in the world. The Spirit calls the believer out of the world so he can join with others. Today, so many do not even go to mass. How can the Spirit give them power to serve? Those that go to mass, are in ignorance of the spiritual gifts and do not gather with other believers in prayer.
Is it any wonder why the Church is weak? I am trying to explain the secrets of the Spirit’s workings. Just begin. Study the books. Come together. I will be in your midst to lead you. Do it today. Remember, the time is very, very short.
9. Importance of Prophesy
Aug 30th, 2013
Today, I will speak of the importance to the Church of prophetic visions and words. Later, I will teach about the use of prophesy. Look again at the Early Church. How did this great missionary enterprise reach the end of the known world in just a few decades? Was this the work of human genius? Not at all. Read the scriptures. All was guided by the revealing gifts of the Spirit.
By a prophetic vision, Peter knew to go to the home of Cornelius, the Gentile (Acts C10). By prophetic words spoken at Antioch, Barnabas and Saul were sent forth on the great missionary journey (Acts C13). On the second journey, the Holy “Spirit did not allow Paul to preach in Asia. Instead, a prophetic vision called him to Macedonia in Europe (Acts C16). Later, when Paul was to return to Jerusalem, he already knew clearly that he would be taken prisoner because of a prophecy given by Agabus (Acts 21:10-11_. While in custody, the Lord himself told Paul, that, having preached the gospel in Jerusalem, he would also bear witness in Rome (Acts 23:11).
Where would the Early Church have been without the Holy Spirit’s prophetic revelations? The community would be floundering and subjected to every kind of failure. Such is the plight of today’s Church because the prophetic word is not spoken and the prophetic vision is not received.
Prophecy is not an extraordinary experience like God speaking from the mountaintop amid thunder and lightning. Prophecy is a quiet voice, heard within the heart.
At times the Spirit reveals the Father’s will for the soul. These words are just for the person. Sometimes, the words are for another person, a group, for the Church, or even for the whole world (such as these locutions). This is what I will explain.
10. The Importance of Prophesy
Aug 31st, 2013
Prophecy is very important because it is the word of God. Paul writes, “Strive eagerly for the spiritual gifts, above all that you may prophesy” (1Cor.14:1) because “whoever prophesies builds up the Church (V4).
The Spirit has already given God’s word in the Bible and in the authoritative teachings of the Church. True prophesy never contradicts that word but applies the word and explains God’s plan in individual circumstance.
How the Holy Spirit wants to speak out! Through the gift of prophesy he guides the individual speaks to congregations and even leads the entire Church. To set aside this spiritual gift is to walk in a useless darkness. I ask “Can human solutions save the Church? Can the thoughts of man, even the thoughts of bishops and popes adequately guide the Church? God’s plans are hidden and he reveals the great mysteries through the prophets.
Oh, when will the spiritual gift of prophecy come forth to illumine the Church? When will those who guide my Church accept the prophetic word? Even when I speak in authorized apparitions, the words are set aside.
The future of the Church will be filled with a great light and power resulting from the Spirit pouring out his prophetic word. As Peter said, “Your sons and your daughters will prophesy.” (Acts 2:17). Yes, all from the greatest to the least will speak God’s word and new life will flow out.
11. Evangelizing and Miracles
Sep 1st, 2013
The evangelizing success of the Early Church depended much on signs and wonders. When Peter healed the lame man in the temple, 5000 came to believe (Acts 4:4). When Paul healed Publius at Malta, the whole island believed (and remains Catholic until today). When Philip went to Samaria, he drove out many demons. Paralyzed and crippled people were cured. Great joy, came upon the city and many were baptized. (Acts C7).
These events parallel the ministry of Jesus. He preached that the kingdom of God was present. His miracles showed the people that his preaching was true. Jesus told his disciples to proclaim the gospel to every creature and to baptize those who believed. He promised that signs would accompany the preaching, that they would drive out demons and heal the sick by laying hands. Evangelization and miracles should go together.
Widespread evangelizing without widespread signs and wonders is impossible. Many try to preach but (as Paul says) are ignorant of these spiritual gifts of healing, raising from the dead and driving out demons. Their harvest is bound to be small.
4. Annihilation of the Nations
Sep 2nd, 2013
Syria will destabilize the Middle East but it will not be the focal point of the second stage of destruction. Until now, with the civil uprisings, the destruction has been internal to each nation.
The second step is war between nations. In this war, other countries will inevitably be drawn in. Although seemingly small, no power will be present to prevent this conflict.
The third stage is the annihilation of some nations as prophesied at Fatima. This will have horrible, unimaginable consequences for the whole world, which will never be the same.
For 2000 years, Satan has planned this annihilation as his way of claiming back the world that I redeemed by my blood. I do not want this annihilation. That is why my mother has spoken so often and why I am now speaking so clearly. The world must be told that the annihilation of the nations is not far away. If the Church does not want to reveal the truths contained in the Fatima secret, then I will use this little voice to do so.
12. Discernment of Spirits
Sep 2nd, 2013
Discernment of Spirits is a very important spiritual gift which is also unknown to most. There are three “spirits” – the Holy Spirit, the human spirit and the diabolical spirit. The Holy Spirit guided Jesus to stay behind in the temple. When I asked, “Son, why have you done this to us?” He replied, “Should I not be in my Father’s house?” The Holy Spirit told him to stay in the temple.
When Peter refused to believe that Jesus would suffer and when he refused to allow Jesus to wash his feet, until he was corrected, Peter was acting in the human spirit.
When Judas betrayed Jesus and left the Last Supper, he was acting under the demonic spirit which controlled his heart. “It was night”.
The human spirit stands between God’s Spirit (who invites it to goodness) and the demonic spirit that uses every opportunity to enslave it to darkness. If people do not pray, their human spirit, with all its passion, ambitions and weaknesses will inevitably make false steps and walk in diabolical darkness. How much the soul needs to discern which spirit is guiding its decisions.
13. Discerning the Evil One
Sep 3rd, 2013
The spirit of evil is most effective when he is hidden and people do not realize that he is at work. The gift of discernment unmasks him, reveals him, and shows the person how to be freed from his power.
He is the spirit of lies, confusion and division. He is the spirit of wars, suffering and destruction. He is the spirit of lust. (Oh, how this spirit has gone forth upon the world.) He is the spirit of death in abortions and of hatred in relationships. He is the spirit of greed that drives a person to seek avariciously and to forget his neighbor. He is the spirit of infidelity that leads a spouse into illicit relationships. He is the spirit of addictions that claims alcoholics and those who use drugs.
He is the spirit of division that divides and destroys families; the spirit of hatred and revenge which resists God’s gift of forgiving others. He is the spirit of rebellion when people say, “I will not serve God.” How extensive is his influence. Because he is not seen, he goes undetected.
He is everywhere, but must act only on the surface until he discovers some door into the human heart. Then he enters, until he is revealed and renounced.
