Goodmorning Disciples of Jesus Christ. Happy Palm Sunday! We must spend this week in solemn prayer and adoration of Our Lord in the Holy week before His death and resurrection. Not sure how many posts we will work on this week since it is Holy Week. We all need to spend as much time with Our Lord as possible, so that is what we also will be doing.
Yesterday, we discussed how we have been deceived, and allured by the elites and many world leaders into a Beast System without us realizing it. Today, we are going to re-post what we also wrote a few years ago from July 2020 about what the first beast actually is instead of who it is. We know the antichrist is soon going to make his appearance, but Our Lord has put it in our hearts to explain how the tentacles of Satan have put together this beast system that we are now living in because of the deception we have fallen into with advancing technology, the media, celebrities, and everything that influences our societies. Of course, this all comes from removing God from our lives, and governments, and allowing sin to rule everything. Even with all of the appeals and warnings Our Blessed Mother has made to us this last century, to repent and turn back to God, we are still blinded by sin, and have allowed the cup of iniquity to overflow. Here is what we wrote about the First Beast, and this ties into what we posted in August 2020 about falling into a Beast System. https://liveandloveforjesus.com/2020/07/23/who-is-the-first-beast-in-the-book-of-revelation-131-9-also-messages-from-luz-de-maria-on-the-antichrist-put-together-by-charles-and-light-of-mary-website/.

Here is all of the Gospel of John, Chapter 12. Wow, what a powerful word of God! https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=john%2012&version=NIV.
Jesus Anointed at Bethany
“12 Six days before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethany, where Lazarus lived, whom Jesus had raised from the dead. 2 Here a dinner was given in Jesus’ honor. Martha served, while Lazarus was among those reclining at the table with him. 3 Then Mary took about a pint[a] of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus’ feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.
4 But one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, who was later to betray him, objected, 5 “Why wasn’t this perfume sold and the money given to the poor? It was worth a year’s wages.[b]” 6 He did not say this because he cared about the poor but because he was a thief; as keeper of the money bag, he used to help himself to what was put into it.
7 “Leave her alone,” Jesus replied. “It was intended that she should save this perfume for the day of my burial. 8 You will always have the poor among you,[c] but you will not always have me.”
9 Meanwhile a large crowd of Jews found out that Jesus was there and came, not only because of him but also to see Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead. 10 So the chief priests made plans to kill Lazarus as well, 11 for on account of him many of the Jews were going over to Jesus and believing in him.
Jesus Comes to Jerusalem as King
12 The next day the great crowd that had come for the festival heard that Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem. 13 They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting,
“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”[e]
“Blessed is the king of Israel!”
14 Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it, as it is written:
15 “Do not be afraid, Daughter Zion;
see, your king is coming,
seated on a donkey’s colt.”[f]
16 At first his disciples did not understand all this. Only after Jesus was glorified did they realize that these things had been written about him and that these things had been done to him.
17 Now the crowd that was with him when he called Lazarus from the tomb and raised him from the dead continued to spread the word. 18 Many people, because they had heard that he had performed this sign, went out to meet him. 19 So the Pharisees said to one another, “See, this is getting us nowhere. Look how the whole world has gone after him!”
Jesus Predicts His Death
20 Now there were some Greeks among those who went up to worship at the festival. 21 They came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, with a request. “Sir,” they said, “we would like to see Jesus.” 22 Philip went to tell Andrew; Andrew and Philip in turn told Jesus.
23 Jesus replied, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. 24 Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. 25 Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. 26 Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.
27 “Now my soul is troubled, and what shall I say? ‘Father, save me from this hour’? No, it was for this very reason I came to this hour. 28 Father, glorify your name!”
Then a voice came from heaven, “I have glorified it, and will glorify it again.” 29 The crowd that was there and heard it said it had thundered; others said an angel had spoken to him.
30 Jesus said, “This voice was for your benefit, not mine. 31 Now is the time for judgment on this world; now the prince of this world will be driven out. 32 And I, when I am lifted up[g] from the earth, will draw all people to myself.” 33 He said this to show the kind of death he was going to die.
34 The crowd spoke up, “We have heard from the Law that the Messiah will remain forever, so how can you say, ‘The Son of Man must be lifted up’? Who is this ‘Son of Man’?”
35 Then Jesus told them, “You are going to have the light just a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, before darkness overtakes you. Whoever walks in the dark does not know where they are going. 36 Believe in the light while you have the light, so that you may become children of light.” When he had finished speaking, Jesus left and hid himself from them.
Belief and Unbelief Among the Jews
37 Even after Jesus had performed so many signs in their presence, they still would not believe in him. 38 This was to fulfill the word of Isaiah the prophet:
“Lord, who has believed our message
and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?”[h]
39 For this reason they could not believe, because, as Isaiah says elsewhere:
40 “He has blinded their eyes
and hardened their hearts,
so they can neither see with their eyes,
nor understand with their hearts,
nor turn—and I would heal them.”[i]
41 Isaiah said this because he saw Jesus’ glory and spoke about him.
42 Yet at the same time many even among the leaders believed in him. But because of the Pharisees they would not openly acknowledge their faith for fear they would be put out of the synagogue; 43 for they loved human praise more than praise from God.
44 Then Jesus cried out, “Whoever believes in me does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent me. 45 The one who looks at me is seeing the one who sent me. 46 I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.
47 “If anyone hears my words but does not keep them, I do not judge that person. For I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world. 48 There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; the very words I have spoken will condemn them at the last day. 49 For I did not speak on my own, but the Father who sent me commanded me to say all that I have spoken. 50 I know that his command leads to eternal life. So whatever I say is just what the Father has told me to say.”
Wow! If we look at verses 23 through 26, we see that Our Lord, Jesus Christ is explaining to us that when He dies, (He is the seed or kernel of wheat) that will produce many seeds! We are those that that follow Him as His Servants and Our Father in Heaven will honor all of those that follow Our Lord, Jesus Christ. However, we must also be willing to give up our lives for Our Lord as His Disciples and those that FOLLOW Jesus Christ, if it comes to this final test of Faithfulness to Him as Our King!
Then, if we look at verses 27 through 30, Our Lord explained that He is the light that will glorify the Father, and then Our Heavenly Father spoke to the people from Heaven! How can these people not be amazed at a voice coming from Heaven, and still be in the dark? It is because those that hated Jesus Christ, would not accept Him as the Messiah, and the Son of God, no matter what amazing miracle occurred before their eyes. This is going to happen again when the Warning/Illumination of Conscience occurs, and Our Lord speaks to our hearts. There will still be those that will refuse to believe that actually was Jesus Christ, Our Savior showing us His Divine Mercy! This is why it is so important to spread the message that the Warning is coming soon, and to allow Our Lord to enter our hearts to show us how we must Repent of our sins and turn back to Him.
Then, if we look at verses 42 through 46, we see that Jesus is telling us that we will be tested just like the Pharisees, and to not be afraid to acknowledge and profess our Faith in Our Lord, Jesus Christ! No matter what form of persecution that will come against us, we must profess Our Faith in God, and Our Lord Jesus Christ, as the Son of God that came down from Heaven and saved us from our sins for eternal salvation! We must not focus on this physical life as His Disciples, but eternal life with Him and Our Heavenly Father. Even though we know we are protected by His Precious Blood, we must still live in Our Lord’s Divine Will, and that may mean giving up our lives for Him, as He explained to us in verse 25.
Let us Pray – Lord, we follow You as Your Disciples to the end of this life, so that we may dine with You at Your Heavenly banquet in eternal life. Please give us the strength, endurance, and fortitude to be Your Saints that are willing to lay down our lives for You. Please remove all fear, all anxiety, all uncertainty, and transform us into the saints that have our robes washed white in the Blood of the Lamb. Please continue to remove all of our defects and stains of sin as we enter this Holy Week in contemplation of the sacrifice You made for us during Your Passion, and Death that will lead to Your victory in Your Resurrection. We love and need all of Your Graces now to be able to endure what is coming and to stand any trial, persecution and test that comes our way. Thank You for Your love. Amen.
Here is the latest Mystic Post TV video regarding the prophetic messages of Blessed Elena Aiello. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OuVIu_nWNrc.
It does appear that Blessed Elena’s prophetic messages are coming to fulfillment. Here are her messages in written form posted by the Jesus Maria website. Take a look at her prophetic messages from 1959 until 1961. Simply amazing! http://www.jesusmariasite.org/the-prophecies-of-sister-elena-aliello/.
We have to recall that Pedro Regis also prophesied from Our Blessed Mother that Rome, Italy will be attacked and taken over. We also believe these prophetic messages from both Blessed Elena Aiello, and Pedro Regis will be fulfilled. We must continue to pray for God’s Mercy for the whole world and for the Pope to be in God’s Divine Will.

Here is a report from Fox News with Raymond Arroyo on President Obama making his appearance at the White House. Hmmm, what is he doing there? Doesn’t anyone else think this is unusual? Is President Obama really calling the shots at the white house as we move deeper into the labor pangs and inching closer and closer to world war? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bNIu5o5xzcw.
