Goodmorning Disciples of Jesus Christ. Today, we are going to reflect on Scriptures that teach us to depend on God for all of our needs because He tells us, as He did St. Paul, that His Grace is all that we need to sustain us. For those of us that have consecrated our homes to God Our Father through the Holy Family and through the Immaculate Heart and Sacred Heart, this Dependence, Faith, and Trust in Our Lord, must be declared and prayed daily in our homes along with Adoration of Our Lord. This is because, our survival will totally be dependent on God for His protection and multiplication of food, water, and fuels for sustainment. So, even if we post a list of varying supplies that may still be needed in refuges, it only means that we are relying on Our Lord to bring us these items we don’t have, or for Him to multiply these items. For those that are waiting on their Guardian Angels to lead them to a refuge, you are also dependent on Our Lord, because it will be God’s Heavenly Legions of Angels that will lead us to places of protection. So, there is no way any of us can do this without Our Lord’s Heavenly assistance at all times, and this is part of our purification as His saints. This is explained to us several times throughout God’s Holy Word, and most specifically to St. Paul in 2 Corinthians, 12:1-10. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Corinthians+12%3a1%e2%80%9310.
Paul’s Vision and His Thorn
12 I must go on boasting. Although there is nothing to be gained, I will go on to visions and revelations from the Lord. 2 I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven. Whether it was in the body or out of the body I do not know—God knows. 3 And I know that this man—whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, but God knows— 4 was caught up to paradise and heard inexpressible things, things that no one is permitted to tell. 5 I will boast about a man like that, but I will not boast about myself, except about my weaknesses. 6 Even if I should choose to boast, I would not be a fool, because I would be speaking the truth. But I refrain, so no one will think more of me than is warranted by what I do or say, 7 or because of these surpassingly great revelations. Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. 8 Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. 9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
We see that St. Paul was afflicted with a thorn in his flesh to keep him from being conceited by the many revelations Our Lord was giving him to teach the Disciples. When St. Paul asked Our Lord to remove this thorn, Our Lord said to him, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Our Lord was teaching St. Paul, as well as us as His Disciples, the virtue of Humility. This is why we must always acquire this virtue before we ever move from the purgative stage of the Spiritual life to the Illuminative stage. This time we are living in also will be all of our purification and purging we must endure as we enter into these trials of hardships we are going to experience during this Purification. Our Lord is not punishing us, He is purifying us! We must be refined into the saints God is asking us to be without spot or blemish, just like He had His Apostles and St. Paul endure. We are now on the fast track to sainthood, if we can endure all of the trials and tribulations by remaining Faithful to God until the end. It will be our humbleness that we pour out to God, pray and call out to Him for His Forgiveness, Mercy, Protection, and sustainment of food and water over these next few years that will purify us to make us strong like St. Paul in our moments of weakness.
Here are many Scriptures that reference dependence on God. https://www.cgg.org/index.cfm/library/verses/id/574/dependence-upon-god-verses.htm#:~:text=%20Bible%20Verses%20about%20Dependence%20Upon%20God%20,Me%2C%20and%20I%20in%20him%2C%20bears…%20More%20.
Let us Pray – Lord, we call out to You Our Heavenly Father, for all of Your Grace and Mercy to sustain us as Your Children. We can do nothing without You Father, and we know that because we are Your Children, You will sustain us in everything we need, just like You have told us. We call upon Our Lord, Jesus Christ, to lead us in these times of trouble, and we thank Him for any purification that we may still need to become His saints without spot or blemish to join Him at the Heavenly banquet. We continue to pray for increased Faith, Courage, and Boldness to be like St. Paul, the Apostle, so that we may sufficiently Serve You with all of our hearts, minds, and souls. We also ask for the continued prayers and intercession of Our Blessed Mother, and all of the Angels and Saints as we await in joyful Hope for the coming of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Here is the message from Saint Michael the Archangel about staying in your homes during the social and economic collapse that will occur all over the world. This is why you must have at least 5 to 6 months of food and water in your homes. We can have Faith that Our Lord will multiply food and water, but we must try and obtain as much food and water now, while we still can before collapse begins and people who do not depend on God, will start running in the streets for survival. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bSAF-d5dndI.

Also, here are some suggestions from Mary Ann and others about thinking outside the box on what else may be needed at refuges for survival. Again, we are dependent on Our Lord to provide, however if He has put it on your hearts to bring any of these items in your cars as you are being led to a refuge, please do so. Some of these items may be provided by the heavenly Angels, however God speaks to us also to help others because we have all Surrendered to Him and His Divine Will. So, pray about everything and do nothing without asking Our Lord in prayer. Here is what Mary Ann sent recently.
For those with wells: Manual hand pump, Generator with backup fuel, Extra parts Hoses Timers. For those with or without wells: Purchase Potable water tanks that can be stored inside a garage or shed. A 435-gallon tank will fit into a standard garage. Purchase Rain barrels that can be position under downspouts to collect water. (Coca Cola plants sell their 50-gallon empty plastic containers inexpensively. You have to clean the insides.) Fill all large empty containers such as detergents, cleaners, etc. with water & store to use for non-drinking purposes in case of an emergency. In case of natural disasters fill tubs, pails & sinks with water to use for flushing and cleaning. Clean snow can be melted for water/to fill containers. Purchase a Berkey water filter to purify drinking water. Purchase water purifier tablets & other means to purify drinking water.
Consider long term water needs and utilize the water that’s available now to address them. For example, if you will have to can items in your freezer if we lose power, wash your canning jars in your dishwasher now then wrap them in plastic to keep them clean. Planning to clean carpets, curtains, bedspreads, etc.? Do it now while water is easily available.
If planting a vegetable garden, consider methods to water it with limited water.
A large plastic tub for washing clothes and another tub for rinsing clothes would limit water use. The water could then be recycled to flush toilets, wash floors. The rinse water could water vegetable gardens.
Thank you, Mary Ann, and all of those that are contributing to thinking outside of the box for our refuges.
Emmanuel – “God is with Us.” Jesus, We Trust in You. Precious Blood of Jesus Christ, save us and the whole world, have Mercy on us sinners. Abba, Father, Thy Will Be Done.
