Goodmorning Disciples of Jesus Christ. What we are witnessing today in the growing amount of sin all over the world is the result of people leaving God for paganism, atheistic ideologies, and putting man above God in their own self delusional belief that we know better than God. Father Nolan in his homily on Confraternity of St. Michael the Archangel hits the nail on the head in describing how Satan is slowly manipulating the whole world in falling away from God through pressure and fear instead of leaning into God for increased Faith. Confraternity of St. Michael the Archangel listed this Scripture before Father Nolan gave his homily and we are going to reflect on this today. Here is Jude, Chapter 1. https://www.biblestudytools.com/jude/1.html.
1 Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ and a brother of James, To those who have been called, who are loved in God the Father and kept for Jesus Christ: 2 Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance.
The Sin and Doom of Ungodly People
3 Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt compelled to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to God’s holy people. 4 For certain individuals whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord. 5 Though you already know all this, I want to remind you that the Lord at one time delivered his people out of Egypt, but later destroyed those who did not believe. 6 And the angels who did not keep their positions of authority but abandoned their proper dwelling—these he has kept in darkness, bound with everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day. 7 In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire. 8 In the very same way, on the strength of their dreams these ungodly people pollute their own bodies, reject authority and heap abuse on celestial beings. 9 But even the archangel Michael, when he was disputing with the devil about the body of Moses, did not himself dare to condemn him for slander but said, “The Lord rebuke you!” 10 Yet these people slander whatever they do not understand, and the very things they do understand by instinct—as irrational animals do—will destroy them. 11 Woe to them! They have taken the way of Cain; they have rushed for profit into Balaam’s error; they have been destroyed in Korah’s rebellion. 12 These people are blemishes at your love feasts, eating with you without the slightest qualm—shepherds who feed only themselves. They are clouds without rain, blown along by the wind; autumn trees, without fruit and uprooted—twice dead. 13 They are wild waves of the sea, foaming up their shame; wandering stars, for whom blackest darkness has been reserved forever. 14 Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about them: “See, the Lord is coming with thousands upon thousands of his holy ones 15 to judge everyone, and to convict all of them of all the ungodly acts they have committed in their ungodliness, and of all the defiant words ungodly sinners have spoken against him.” 16 These people are grumblers and faultfinders; they follow their own evil desires; they boast about themselves and flatter others for their own advantage.
A Call to Persevere
17 But, dear friends, remember what the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ foretold. 18 They said to you, “In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires.” 19 These are the people who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit. 20 But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life. 22 Be merciful to those who doubt; 23 save others by snatching them from the fire; to others show mercy, mixed with fear—hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh.
24 To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy— 25 to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.
So, this is exactly what we as God’s Disciples are up against today in these times. People are falling away from God because they were never properly rooted in Christ to begin with, and now Satan is luring them away with what our world is presenting as an accepted and normal modern society. The tentacles of Satan are so deeply entrenched in deception through our governments, the media, our schools, music and television, that people are only believing what they are constantly being fed mentally. Our Spirits are what have to be fed daily to stay nourished and deeply rooted in Christ, because this is the foundation of our Faith. We have explained this thoroughly in this blog of how this all began, but what is even more alarming is that Our Blessed Mother warned us this would happen through Her prophetic messages and warning centuries ago. However, just as St. Jude explained, this is just a repeat of how Satan works his evil in the world and this really is not a surprise as it is a disappointment that Our Lord is finding so many with little faith. God allows us to be tested and the more we follow the world, the more we fall away from God.
However, our role in these end times is exactly what St. Jude said in verses 17 through 23.
“But, dear friends, remember what the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ foretold. They said to you, “In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires.” These are the people who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit. But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life. Be merciful to those who doubt; save others by snatching them from the fire; to others show mercy, mixed with fear—hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh.”
We have the Holy Spirit and His gifts to use today and snatch people from falling into the eternal fire. We must use these gifts everyday now and until Our Lord comes for us, because this is what He is calling us to do as His Children and Disciples. You can’t be a Child of God without also being His Disciple. Whatever service you can do for Our Lord is what He expects of us because we love and honor Him and it is our desire to please Him in service to Him. Our Lord’s desire now and always has been the Salvation of Souls. Please pray today on how we can please Our Lord and assist Him with the Salvation of Souls.
Let us Pray – Lord, we come to You today as Your faithful servants wishing to please You in everything we do in our thoughts, words, actions, deeds and prayers. Please guide us by Your Holy Spirit in assisting You with saving a soul today. Whether it is a kind act, a kind word, or preaching the gospel to someone who will listen, please direct us in all of Your ways so that we may be guided to this soul in need of being snatched away from eternal death. Please guide us in being doers of the word of God, and not just hearers of Your word. We also ask for the graces to do this with love, kindness and patience, just like You taught us dear Lord. We ask this of God Our Father in Your mighty name, Jesus Christ. Amen.
Here is the homily by Father Nolan on Confraternity of St. Michael the Archangel. “It’s Going to End Up Being a Hell on Earth”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvJgIn2CBtE.
Here is Father Dan Reehil with his latest episodes of “Battle Ready”. His guest is Tim Frances from podcast episodes dated December 7, and 8, 2021. Tim Francis explains how he is bringing Catholic back to Catholic faith by explaining the Spiritual side of our faith that many Catholics are lacking today. Amen, this is exactly what St. Jude was referencing above, and Tim is doing his service to Our Lord by spreading faith through a belief in miracles. https://radiomaria.us/category/podcast/battleready/.
Here are the latest messages from Prophet John Leary on his website. http://johnleary.com/.
Friday, December 3, 2021: (St. Francis Xavier)
Jesus said: “My son, every time you travel to give a talk about My messages, I send a legion of angels to protect you. Be sure to pray your St. Michael prayer of the long form as you leave and return. St. Michael will be leading My angels to help you. You have not had many occasions to give talks because of your Covid restrictions. You are still giving your Zoom conferences to make up for not being able to travel as often. My people need to be ready to leave for My refuges, as events are about to bring more persecution of My faithful. Have trust in My protection and faith that I can multiply your food, water, and fuels at your refuges.”
Jesus said: “My people, Russia has troops massing along the Ukrainian border. They are threatening NATO to stand down and not interfere with their expected invasion of the Ukraine. If NATO and America do not come to the aid of a Russian invasion of the Ukraine, then Russia will continue to keep invading countries that used to be part of the old Soviet Union. Be prepared for more wars because Russia and China see Biden’s America as weak and no longer a threat to further takeovers. Be prepared to come to My refuges when the communists could take over your country.”
Here are the latest messages on After the Warning website, the first to Luz De Maria from St. Michael the Archangel on a darkness coming. https://afterthewarning.com/messages-from-heaven/luz-de-maria/2021/december/09/a-darkness-is-coming/.
Here are some videos that the creator of After the Warning website recommends watching before these videos are removed by You Tube. https://afterthewarning.com/messages-from-heaven/miscellaneous-messages/2021/december/09/videos-worth-watching-before-they-are-removed/.
Here are the latest messages to Valentina Papagna, https://afterthewarning.com/messages-from-heaven/valentina-papagna/2021/december/09/latest-messages/.
Kate, who is a follower of this blog asked if Shelley Anna, a visionary we often post through After the Warning website, had any ecclesiastical approval by the Catholic Church. We are still researching this, but here is the You Tube channel Shelley Anna created after receiving messages a few years ago from Our Lord. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2lDoJiV-vGMFyZXsbAYF3A/videos.
The very first video had an image of the Divine Mercy rays coming down out of the Divine Mercy Heart image on an altar in a Church. Mystic Post actually has this in their blog from Shelley Anna. We are still looking for something that signifies Bishop approval but have not discovered it yet. We should always pray for discernment with each message, no matter who the visionary or prophet is, and will continue to do so with Shelley Anna. https://mysticpost.com/2021/04/new-message-from-jesus-and-the-virgin-mary-to-beloved-shelley-anna-place-your-trust-in-me-divine-mercy-miracle/.
