Goodmorning Disciples of Jesus Christ. It is difficult to be joyful the day after the death of Pope Benedict XVI. However, after praying for the repose of Pope Benedict’s soul at a Requiem Holy Mass yesterday that our Priest had at our Church, we must continue to go back to being joyful for Our Lord to Serve Him and keep going because this is what Pope Benedict would have wanted for us to do for God. Here is today’s New Year’s Day Holy Mass at St. Mary’s Parish in Ottawa, Canada. It is also the Solemnity of Mary, the Holy Mother of God! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tt3vzPVvJ8A.
Here is Anthony Stein’s reporting on the death of Pope Benedict Emeritus XVI. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZmY2GoWFzTQ.
Here is a Plenary Indulgence you can receive at Holy Mass today to offer up for Pope Benedict XVI if you wish. We also said this prayer yesterday but believe you can only gain one Plenary Indulgence or Partial Indulgence for yesterday or today. https://connect.xfinity.com/appsuite/api/oxodocumentconverter?session=5d6a9382b41d478c9db371a576d53cf8&uid=1672489504098.5982&action=getdocument&documentformat=pdf&priority=instant&filename=New%20Years%20Plenary%20Indulgence.pdf&id=89906&folder_id=default0%2FINBOX&mimetype=application%2Fpdf&revtag=revtag-498&nocache=499&source=mail&attached=2&cryptoAuth=&decrypt=false.
Today, we are going to discuss what appears to be the continuing fulfillment of God’s Holy Word in Luke 21:7-28. Here it is, https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Luke%2021%3A7-28&version=NIV.
7 “Teacher,” they asked, “when will these things happen? And what will be the sign that they are about to take place?”
8 He replied: “Watch out that you are not deceived. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am he,’ and, ‘The time is near.’ Do not follow them. 9 When you hear of wars and uprisings, do not be frightened. These things must happen first, but the end will not come right away.”
10 Then he said to them: “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. 11 There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.
12 “But before all this, they will seize you and persecute you. They will hand you over to synagogues and put you in prison, and you will be brought before kings and governors, and all on account of my name. 13 And so you will bear testimony to me. 14 But make up your mind not to worry beforehand how you will defend yourselves. 15 For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict. 16 You will be betrayed even by parents, brothers and sisters, relatives and friends, and they will put some of you to death. 17 Everyone will hate you because of me. 18 But not a hair of your head will perish. 19 Stand firm, and you will win life.
20 “When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies, you will know that its desolation is near. 21 Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those in the city get out, and let those in the country not enter the city. 22 For this is the time of punishment in fulfillment of all that has been written. 23 How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! There will be great distress in the land and wrath against this people. 24 They will fall by the sword and will be taken as prisoners to all the nations. Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.
25 “There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. 26 People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. 27 At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”
In discernment of the Scriptures of what Our Lord has shown us is that we have been at Seal 3 for a little while now, most likely because God has delayed the action of the elites for the salvation of souls. However, it does appear that events are continuing to speed up again and the Prophets in this blog keep pointing to the Great Tribulation getting ready to occur. However, if we study the Scriptures above, Our Lord has given us a timeline of Seals 4, 5 and 6, and eventually 7, where Our Lord comes back to judge the Earth. How much time is between each Seal being opened by Our Lord, we will not know, and we can’t presume to know this information. However, with the recent death of Pope Benedict XVI, it does appear that everything keeps moving quickly to Seal 4 being opened. If you read verses 8 and 9 above, we can see that we are currently in this period of time of Nation rising against Nation, famines, great earthquakes, and pestilences in various places, fearful events and great signs from heaven. But Our Lord said here, “Do not be frightened, for these things must happen first, but the end will not come right away.”
Also, we are beginning to hear about Rabbis already holding meetings with Messiah. So, could this be what Our Lord referenced in verse 8 above? Maybe this is just one example of many to come, even though the Messiah for the Jews is different than Our Lord, Jesus Christ, because many Jewish people still do not believe that Jesus Christ, Our King, is the true and only Messiah. https://www.israeltoday.co.il/read/israeli-rabbi-says-hes-already-holding-meetings-with-messiah/.
As these Seals being opened by Our Lord continue to overlap, the most likely next big event will be large earthquakes. Notice Our Lord said in verse 11, “great earthquakes”. We are just now beginning to see these go into the 7.0 plus Richter scale. The largest lately was the one that occurred off the coast of California by San Francisco 11 days ago that was a 6.4. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XiYjhL6VlWM.
We must remember that these events will keep getting worse, because we are both in the labor pains and the Seals being opened by Our Lord, and the Seals are the overall big picture of everything that takes place in the Book of Revelation. Many may disagree with our discernment, and that is okay, because this is just what the Holy Spirit has shown us.
So, according to Our Lord, all of these things must happen first. The Warning/Illumination of Conscience, we still believe will occur during Seal 4, and it will be God’s Act of Mercy to turn back to Him before we move into Seals 5 and 6 of the coming Persecution and the sky appearing to literally fall to the Earth before Our Lord returns as the Just Judge with His wrath. This is why in Seal 6 every person hides themselves in mountain crags and begs for the mountains to fall on them and hide them from the “wrath of the Lamb.” We will not be subjected to God’s wrath, because we are His Children. This last seal being opened in Seal 7 is God’s wrath, and we (His Children) will already be sheltered by God in a Refuge of His Sacred Heart both Spiritually and physically if we are chosen by God as the Remnant, or we have already been martyred for God in Seal 5, also what Our Lord describes in verses 12 through 19 above in Luke 21: 7-28 (notice these verses and Chapter in Luke are all multiples of 7, meaning completeness). Our protection by God is explained in Chapter 7 as the “Triumph of the Elect”, of the Book of Revelation which will also be the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Our Blessed Mother (Completeness) because we have all assisted Her and Our Lord with the salvation of souls. Here is what we wrote on what we discerned from the Holy Spirit a few months ago. https://liveandloveforjesus.com/2022/08/17/how-our-lord-showed-me-that-our-blessed-mother-is-taking-us-to-a-refuge-in-revelation-chapter-12-and-we-are-part-of-the-elect-in-revelation-chapter-7-also-we-must-continue-to-study-the-prophetic-me/.
Here is an excerpt from Daniel O’Connor’s blog about being ready for what is about to come upon us suddenly, but not unexpectedly, because we have been prepared by Our Blessed Mother, and by the Saints, Mystics and Prophets. Here is a word of encouragement from Professor Daniel O’Connor on Mother and Refuge of the End Times. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GR5b6_PKS0A.
Here are the latest messages from Prophet John Leary. Look at what John Leary received as a locution from St. John the Apostle on December 27, 2022. http://www.johnleary.com/index.php/2022/12/30/tuesday-december-27-2022/.
Here are more messages given to Prophet John Leary for this past week. http://www.johnleary.com/index.php/2022/12/page/3/?cat=3&order=ASC.
Here is a video from Quo Vadis with the most recent message given to Luz De Maria from Our Blessed Mother on December 27, 2022. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBdwD-LwfyM.
Here is another video by Quo Vadis with an older message given to Father Stefano Gobbi from Our Blessed Mother on the great Apostacy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Be2k2OboLjE.
Here is a message from Mystic Post TV with a video from Father Michel Rodrigue on the coming darkness coming upon the world. Many people have stated that Father Michel Rodrigue’s prophetic message about both Pope Benedict and Pope Francis being martyred did not become fulfilled because Pope Benedict died yesterday, only after a day of us knowing about his illness. So, what we must discern here is that we know Pope Benedict has died, but do we truly know what he died from, and why he suddenly passed on the last day of the year of 2022? Do we know that he was not martyred? Only God knows the Truth, but it does bring us closer to the possibility of events being fulfilled very soon, and we best keep preparing like the wise virgins. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_BLHnwLbzs.
Here is the best of U.S. Grace Force that they put together for the end of the year 2022. I have not personally viewed this yet, but I am sure it is good. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZrvQhe7vUU.
Also, for those that have been battling the dark night of the senses, like myself, here is a teaching from blogger MathewSix25to34. I was researching his blog posts and found his Rumble videos on how to fight through the Spiritual battles. This is an excellent teaching from him because we have looked at what St. John of the Cross has taught us on how to accept this gift from God and allow God to work on us for our continued transformation into Saints. However, MatthewSix25to34 brings us a practical interpretation he received from God about all Truths and how to combat these evil attacks from Satan with God’s Truth. https://rumble.com/vhjyzn-the-fourth-principle-how-to-take-apart-a-demonic-attack-and-maybe-find-a-tr.html.
