At the hour of

claim of not knowing the truth. All souls are given an opportunity to accept my
mercy, even if at the last breath.

Ac 12319..,

Prophecy states God's Great Warning to be given every person on the earth can be compared to a near death experience.

When?

No one knows the exact time. Heaven only says "soon."
From Garabandal prophecy, the Great Warning will happen when things in the world are at their worst.

I don't know Ac 12319.., the prophetic doesn't say exactly. I believe in God's greatest attribute, His mercy and that He would say this. I rely on what the messages do do say which confirm what the Church has always taught. God states again in the messages to Cletus, GSWYL, a basic spiritual fact

"Any mortal sin will cast you into hell."

Why everyone should take gravely serious..."repent and be baptized."

Baptism first, you must be baptized. That's how you first
receive God's grace (sanctifying grace), His presence in your soul. And the only way we lose God's grace after Baptism is when we commit a serious sin, called a mortal sin. Simple advise to keep God's grace in your soul...#1. frequent confession and #2. a daily prayer life.

There are many "examine your conscience" sites to help if it's been a long time since you last confessed your sins to God. I share this as a help to non-Catholic Christians who don't believe in Catholic Confession. Most often you'll see they take you through the 10 Commandments. The faith is so weak in our time, the secular world doesn't recognize mortal sin instead, they put it into law!

So ask God in prayer for the help to recall your mortal sins. This is why Catholics pray after making their confession of their sins to the priest, while still in the confessional...we pray the Act of Contrition out loud and part of that prayer are the words..."With the help of Thy grace, I shall confess my sins"...

Don't die in mortal sin, confess with true repentance all mortal sins. There are lessor sins, they are called venial sin. You can confess them too if you wish.

Catholics, go to Confession.

All I ever do is repeat. Jesus is faithful to us, didn't He say "I remember your sins no more." But we must
confess them first.

ACT OF CONTRITION

O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended You, and I detest all my sins because I dread the loss of Heaven and the pains of Hell, but most of all because they offend You, my God, Who are are deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Your grace, to confess my sins, to do penance, and to amend my life.
Amen.

The End of the Story

January 17, 2011

Go forward now in peace and joy, for the beginning of the end has come. At the end of a story, events line up, come into focus and are all tied together. Then we understand. So it is with God's story. Events will make sense, come into clearer focus, and you will understand and go on with singular purpose. So it will be, according to My word, says the Lord. It's the end of the beginning and the beginning of the end. So be it.

DENISE MEARS

01/17/11

Come and learn of My Ways.

Come in this season of My Great blessing and turn your hearts toward Me. You have searched and found none to compare; yet you continue along that path. Let the witness of the stars show forth My Greatness. The fields, My fields, are white with harvest. You say you are not ready to go out to pluck but I say you are more than ready. My Spirit will guide and My voice will come forth. If there is one heart ready to receive, you should go. If there is one mind calling out for peace, you should go. Reach forth your hand and give My Heart. Call a fast, as many, and prepare the way.

Rebel not against the voice of your God. Seek My Guidance and I will show the way. Seek My Words and you will hear. Do not make the same mistakes for that road leads back to this place. It will become a path of wondering in a wilderness. Round and round a mountain of doubt and fear; of uncertainty and chaos.

Reach out and be drawn by My Hand of compassion for no one knows you as I. If you knew the time that has come upon this creation, no person, place or thing could keep you from entering in fully to My pathway. If you knew the day that has come upon you, you would not busy yourself in things of this world but be about My Work. My return is near, even at the door. The hope of My Heart is to see all come to repentance and worship Me with all your spirit, soul and body.

This is a time like no other. My Hand will come forth to judge all of your doings. Begin now to seek after your God for time runs out and I will shut the door. I know your heart towards Me and I will judge the intents of your heart. Choose this day who you will serve.

Re: God is preparing everyone for the Great Warning
Thanks Ac 10373..,

From GOD SPEAKS WILL YOU LISTEN, some words excerpted in the
last post. Whoever is reading this, no matter your faith background you gotta turn to Our Lord now! Look at the initial words in the first sentence, it is all happening!

And the choices, God knows and shares to help us, not everyone will make it to the refuges. Pray to know and accept God's will for you. It will be one or the other, NEVER the mark/the chip, you can't be part of that bunch. Pray for the grace now, God send me Your grace, help me.

"The famine, pestilence,
war, and financial collapse will allow the man of sin to seduce and control the majority of
mankind. It is the lack of repentance and rejection of my mercy that causes the events to
unfold. My faithful, do not be deceived. These are many false messengers proclaiming all
of my people will be taken to refuges. For I prophesy to you, many of my faithful will be
tortured, imprisoned, and martyred for their faith. Many more of my faithful will deny me
to save their lives. This will cause you to take the mark of the beast and enter eternal
torment. There will be a portion of my faithful, who will be led to my refuges by their
guardian angels. You have no guarantee you will be among those called to my refuges.
Prepare yourself for hardship, suffering, and the way of the cross. Offer yourself a living
sacrifice to my Father. Live in my joy and peace."
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1214025



God's words in 2006 given to His messenger Cletus are
confirmed in a recent message given at the end of December to John Leary.

Read other revelation concerning the refuges, the Chastisement (3 days of darkness)...and more on the Great Warning.



Thursday, December 30, 2010:
Jesus said: “My people, you have read of St. John the Baptist in chains, and also St. Peter and St. Paul. Many of My disciples and apostles were captured in prison with chains, and later they were martyred for their faith. This religious persecution is about to be repeated in the coming tribulation. You will again see some of My people shackled on trains and delivered to the current death camps for execution. This is why I am preparing refuges with people that I have inspired, so My faithful will have places to go in order to avoid being captured by the one world people. Some will be martyred for their faith, but I will lessen the pain to allow them to endure it. These martyrs will become instant saints in heaven. For those, who come to My refuges, they will be protected from harm by My angels, and I will provide for their needs during the reign of the Antichrist. Have no fear, for I will give you My peace in all of this struggle. After the Antichrist’s time, I will come with My victory over all the evil ones, and I will establish My Era of Peace.”

Prayer Group:
Jesus said: “My people, this spinning globe is a sign of how I will speed up the earth on its axis so the time of the tribulation will be shortened for the sake of the elect. The football field represents the time from September to February when the Warning will most likely occur. My people can prepare themselves with prayer and Confession of their unforgiven sins. The Warning will be your sign of the events that will lead up to the coming of the Antichrist into power.”

Jesus said: “My people, at the end of the tribulation I will bring My Comet of Chastisement to enable My victory over all of the evil ones. As the comet strikes the earth, many volcanoes will erupt, and the ash will block out the sun creating the Three Days of Darkness. In the vision you are seeing 72 hour blessed candles that will give the only light during this darkness. Remember to take such a candle with you in your backpacks on your way to My refuges.”

Jesus said: “My people, I have asked My refuge builders to have one building dedicated for sleeping quarters for My faithful. This is why you are looking at the roof of such a building, as I will multiply such buildings as needed. Those, who are preparing their refuges, need to have some food, fuel, and water so I could multiply these things that people need for their survival.”

Jesus said: “My people, all of My faithful that come to My refuges know and follow My Commandments. Among all the buildings that will house My faithful, you will all be on the honor system with no stealing accepted. You will all be in loving communities that will not require locks as you do now in the world where there are thieves. Just as you trust in Me, so you will have to trust each other because everything belongs to Me, and I share it with all of you. By helping each other to survive by using your own talents, everyone will have what they need. Be loving of each other as you pray to Me. You are all one family with Me as I protect you from the evil ones.”

In a homily on February 21st, 2001, Pope John Paul welcomed, in his words, "people from every part of the world." He went on to say,
You come from 27 countries on four continents and speak various languages. Is this not a sign of the Church’s ability, now that she has spread to every corner of the globe, to understand peoples with different traditions and languages, in order to bring to all the message of Christ? —JOHN PAUL II, Homily, Feb 21, 2001;

Would this not constitute a fulfillment of Matt 24:14 where it says:

This gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, as a testimony to all nations; and then the end will come (Matt 24:14)?

Re: God is preparing everyone for the Great Warning
When the Gospel is preached throughout the world (Matthew 24:14) is fulfilled by the Internet.

Steve Ray, and other RC apologists are amazing. It's like they have in their memory every faith subject and Scripture to confirm from the Old and the New Testament!

It's really true, not one verse in the Holy Bible, Old and New Testament conflicts with the other if you follow the RCC's interpretation.

I learn something new, every time I read the faith explained using Scripture by another apologist, John Martignoni.

The Eleventh Hour – My Truth

January 20, 2011

In the eleventh hour My truth shall resound in hearts, bringing new hope.
Those who have doubted My word will no longer walk in unbelief,
for they will be strengthened in power and might to follow My edicts with precision.

I am the One True God. My words of truth shall prevail in hearts.
My words are spoken out of a heart of love and devotion to My beloved,
and you will see the wonder of a totally new hour,
beloved, a totally new hour replete with the wonder of Who I am to you
and what I am doing to bring this eleventh hour to a close and the wonder of eternity to the forefront!!!

Re: God is preparing everyone for the Great Warning
Floating high above the Church of the Immaculate Conception, the symphony of bells calls the Catholics of Morris, Illinois, to worship on this February morning. Far below the bell tower, the nave slowly fills with people as I let my prayers ride upon the sound. It is a miracle that my wife and I are here today. A short year ago, I had told my Protestant pastor that I was going to pray for the Catholic people during Lent, that they would come to know the Lord. Now, here I am in this church, eyes clouding with tears, heart filled with peace and wonder—a Catholic once again.

I have become graciously undone. All the things I thought I knew, all of my clever reasons for ridiculing these people, lie mercifully in ruins behind me. Heaped there also is my self-righteous façade, a victim of the Truth. This morning, with nothing else to give God but my ragged self, I will offer that to him again. In a short time, he will give himself to my wife and me in a very real way. The priest will say, "The Body of Christ," and we will say, "Amen!" We will proclaim that which the Church has proclaimed for two thousand years: that Jesus is really and truly present in the Eucharist. Sitting here now, with the sounds and the sights of Catholicism above and around me and with the expectation of the Eucharist before me, I am filled with awe. What a year! What a tumultuous and glorious journey!

"I was born and raised in a Catholic home." This sentence, repeated in all too many conversion stories, must be included in mine. It seems so much more tragic to preface a testimony with this sentence than to relay a happy conversion story that starts, "I was born and raised a staunch Calvinist, but then. . . ." Why? Because when the story concerns a cradle Catholic, it signals that something was missing from what should have been the most wonderful, grace-filled Christian experience on earth. Yes, the good news is that these Catholics have come home, but the disturbing news is that these people felt the need to leave the Church of their youth to recognize God’s love.

Often, in an attempt to assuage the guilt of having left the Church over such issues as clerical abuse, lack of spiritual formation, or coldness in the local parish, an ex-Catholic will turn against the Church and become viciously anti-Catholic. This happened with me. I was not really anti-Catholic when I left the Church, nor did I leave for any heavy doctrinal reason. I left for emotional ones. At the time of my departure, I was very pro-Catholic and longed for the Church to meet my spiritual needs, but was angry that it didn’t.

I left the Church in 1992, joining a small, loving, Protestant church. Eventually I would become an elder of this church, lead men’s Bible studies, and host weekly prayer meetings. Independently of anything taught from the pulpit of this church, I grew even angrier and proceeded to build a doctrinal case against Rome. Every evening, my grudge against the Church edged toward full-blown hatred as I reveled in the writings of professional anti-Catholics such as Dave Hunt and James G. McCarthy. Many a dark night slipped by as I continually "let the sun go down on my anger." Woe to the unprepared Catholic who crossed my path at that time! Woe to my Catholic family members! Hunt’s and McCarthy’s books allowed me to build an airtight case against the Church, but I never considered that if air could not get in or out, neither could the Light. And so, in the darkness of my prejudice, I grew as a misshapen plant. I bore bitter fruit on twisted branches.

I wrote anti-Catholic tracts and opened a post office box with the intent of distributing them. I spent long hours in the library researching local Catholic history in order to compile a "spiritual map" of my community. On a large street map, I marked the location of each Catholic Church with an X (eight in all). This mapping was done in order to target Catholic churches for intense intercessory prayer campaigns. I wasn’t praying for anything so noble as an increase in vocations in the Catholic Church; I simply wanted all the Catholic churches in my community to be emptied. I went to many of these churches, anointed the buildings with oil, and prayed for the salvation of the members there.

In the midst of all this, something miraculous happened. I heard a sermon by a Fundamentalist pastor who seemed to hate the Church as much as I did. In a pivotal moment of my spiritual life, I listened to him and comprehended just what I had become. Suddenly, as when Nathan the prophet confronted the murderous King David, I could almost hear God say, "You are that man, Mark!" It was as if someone had held a mirror up to my face and I saw that I had become terribly disfigured. Hate had turned me into a monster. I listened to this anti-Catholic preacher, I vividly remember wondering what heaven would be like—filled with only the "righteous" like him and me? I came to the conclusion that heaven would be a miserable place if that were so!

Within a month of hearing this sermon, I picked up a book by an "obscure" Catholic named Mother Teresa. A Simple Path challenged my whole conception of Christian service. Here was an elderly nun selflessly giving her whole life to Christ, but there was just one problem: She prayed the rosary! What was I to do? I knew that the rosary was an instrument used in "idolatrous" prayers to Mary; how could this woman serve God and Satan too? For the answer, I turned to Dave Hunt’s book, A Woman Rides the Beast, where he reassured me that "her [Mother Teresa’s] evangelism leads no one to Christ." For some strange (and merciful) reason I didn’t buy Hunt’s counsel this time. I began to wonder, Am I just gathering around me a great number of teachers to say what my itching ears want to hear?

I shared Mother Teresa’s book with my pastor, a kind and compassionate man whom I love deeply, and he was so moved that he preached a sermon on it. Contrary to Dave Hunt’s assertion, people in this Protestant congregation were brought closer to Christ because of this nun’s witness. Seeing this, I knew I had to alter radically my opinion of at least one Catholic, a tiny nun from Calcutta.

I was devastated by all that was being revealed to me about my prejudices. I was horrified by the prospect that some of the very people I had been persecuting may have in fact been "saved." I, of course, had no intention of going back to the Catholic Church, but at least I would be more charitable in my assessment of Catholics. Not wanting to concede too much, I resolved to re-read Dave Hunt’s book to see what I could salvage of my case against the Church.

I started reading A Woman Rides the Beast for a second time, but this time something was different. Whereas in the past this book made me feel smug about my escape from the "Whore of Babylon," it now caused my case to collapse in ruins. This book is so internally inconsistent and mean-spirited that I could only shake when I read it again. If Hunt had written in the same manner about the Jewish people, he would be termed an anti-Semite and be featured on Nightline. Consider the following quotation: "Those conditioned to believe that wine had become Christ’s blood were able to believe Hitler’s myth of blood as well." How could I have been so blind to his prejudice?

As I studied this book, something else became apparent. In his rush to pummel Catholics, Hunt also wounded Martin Luther. With his assault on Luther’s "heretical" belief in the Real Presence, he shook my trust in sola scriptura. Luther and Hunt both believe that Scripture alone should be used to determine doctrine. Yet, while using Scripture, these men were at opposite ends of the spectrum on what seemed to be a key doctrinal question: Is Christ physically present in the Eucharist? Hunt said this belief was "a fantasy" and "a foolish heresy" and cited many verses to support his belief. Luther disagreed, as he explained in A Treatise Concerning the Blessed Sacrament and Concerning the Brotherhood:

" There are those who practice their arts and subtleties to such an extent that they ask where the bread remains when it is changed into Christ’s flesh and the wine when it is changed into his blood; also in what manner the whole Christ, his flesh and blood, can be comprehended in so small a portion of bread and wine. What does it matter? It is enough to know that it is a divine sign, in which Christ’s flesh and blood are truly present—how and where, we leave to him.".

Hunt claimed that Luther had been unable to jettison this belief from his Catholic upbringing, but Luther’s writings clearly show that he used Scripture to support this belief, as is shown in his Small Catechism:

" What is the sacrament of the altar? It is the true body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, under the bread and wine, instituted by Christ himself for us Christians to eat and drink. Where is this written? The holy Evangelists, Matthew, Mark, and Luke, together with St. Paul, write thus: ‘Our Lord Jesus Christ, in the night in which he was betrayed, took bread; and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, Take, eat; this is my body, which is given for you; this do in remembrance of me.’"

Hunt had a problem, and so did I. Using Scripture alone, we had come to an impasse. Sola scriptura did not seem to be a valid method for solving this important doctrinal dispute. Either Hunt was right or Martin Luther was right—or both were wrong. In any event, sola scriptura had failed to weed out an error in doctrine. Someone was teaching a lie, but who? What Luther (using Scripture) saw as the Body and Blood of our Lord, Hunt (using Scripture) saw as a fantasy and heresy.

I saw that it ultimately came down to a standoff between Dave Hunt’s and Martin Luther’s interpretations of Scripture. I started to wonder, Am I just following the "traditions of men" by trusting Hunt, or am I following the intentions of Christ? This question started to burn inside of me. How would I resolve it?

I was dismayed to discover that I could not even bring this disagreement to the "church" as instructed by Jesus in Matthew 18. In this discourse to the disciples, he outlined a three-step procedure to use if one had something against a brother. Included were the consequences to be incurred if one would not submit to correction. I reasoned that Hunt’s charge of heresy would qualify as having "ought against a brother." Jesus’ solution was not to take this problem to Scripture (remember, that’s how we arrived at this impasse), but instead to take it to "the Church." It suddenly became clear that I couldn’t do this. Which Protestant church would I have brought it to? Dave Hunt’s church? The Lutheran church that he had charged with heresy? Perhaps a "neutral" Protestant denomination like the Baptists? If the Baptists, which Baptist church? The Regular Baptists? The Southern Baptists? The American Baptists? Which one of the thousands of Protestant denominations should I bring it to?

Which Protestant church would be given the final authority to cast one or both of these men out as "tax collectors and sinners"? And if they were cast out, what would stop them from simply starting up another church, one custom-tailored to their own particular teachings? The end result could be two new denominations—and a direct repudiation of Christ’s command that this excommunication would be binding "in heaven and on earth."

I began to see that, in spite of the Protestant insistence on the Bible being the "court of last appeal," sola scriptura was an unworkable doctrine. Without an authoritative Church with the authority to bind and loose (in heaven and on earth), Jesus’ solution for conflict resolution in was ludicrous. I reasoned that Jesus loves us too much to give us worthless solutions; therefore, this authoritative Church must exist today, just as it must have existed from the time he issued the command. This Church must have been exercising this authority throughout Christian history, definitively judging heresies such as Gnosticism and Pelagianism as being contrary to the Truth.

I read the Church Fathers and saw that the belief in the Real Presence could be traced back to the early martyrs; the early Church consistently held that Jesus was really present in the Eucharist. From this discovery I developed for the Eucharist an intense hunger that would not dissipate. I wanted to belong to a living Church tradition, to be joined to a family that had its beginnings in the Upper Room and that had continued to defend the faith until this present day.

I discovered that I didn’t have to search for a Church to weigh the merits of Luther’s doctrine. Jesus Christ already had established a Church that had done just that. In the end, Dave Hunt had done what the Catholic Church had failed to do. He had destroyed my trust in sola scriptura.

With these revelations came a necessary pruning. As branch after twisted branch of prejudice was cut off, I felt great pain and turmoil. I know that, were it not for the love of my wife and the grace of God, I would not have survived the process. I did not want to leave the wonderful people at my church, and, as sad as it might sound, I did not want to leave the comfort of the dark little box into which I had tried to squeeze the richness of Christianity. On another level, I did not want to commit my life to a Church with which I was still angry. I did not want to eat the crow that people would be lining up to feed me. Not surprisingly, this thinly-veiled pride was the last obstacle to be overcome.

But I learned to lay my pride and anger aside as I prayed about Jesus’ question in Luke 6:46, "And why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say?" I slowly came to a conclusion: If someone is serious about obeying Christ, and if that person makes an honest and careful study of both Scripture and Church history, he ultimately will feel compelled to come into the bosom of the Church—or suffer the utter misery of living a life of compromise.

My return to the Church happened on a quiet evening at the local monastery. There was no fanfare, no grand ceremony. I sincerely stated my intention to obey the teachings of the Church by making a profession of faith, and then went to confession with my family. Together with our fellow Catholics, we received our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament during a public Mass. After a four-year rejection of the Eucharist, I could only weep. The sublime nature of the moment was heightened by the realization that this church had been marked by a small X on my map.

On the edge of the woods near the monastery stands a statue of Jesus with arms outstretched. A detail of this statue had caught my attention while compiling my map two years earlier: The statue had no right hand. Such was my suspicion of the Church that this missing hand was proof to me of Rome’s diabolical nature. The Bible had much to say about the importance of God’s mighty right hand, and here was a symbol of the Catholic Church’s negation of God’s power. So, X marked the spot.

I pointed to the statue during one of my first meetings with the priest who brought me home. "See," I challenged, "Christ has no right hand!" Father Gabriel turned calmly toward me and said, "Mark, you are his right hand." My thoughts turned to Mother Teresa and my own stumbling journey to this place, and conviction followed.

I had been so intent upon making God do my will that I hadn’t even considered following Christ’s insistent call to humble service. The sheer arrogance of my approach to "healing" the spiritual wounds of my community became brutally apparent.

Now, when I leave Mass at the monastery, I can see this statue that still challenges me to continue this lifelong process of dying to self.

The Wow Factor!



February 24, 2009



wow – winner, triumph, smash, sensation, knockout



I am presenting the WOW factor in the coming scenario. I want you ready to receive all that I have for you. I want your heart open to all that is coming your way. Get prepared, beloved, for the most amazing. This WOW factor goes out the roof. The WOW factor will be so high on the WOW scale that you will be amazed, simply amazed, at your Beloved’s presentation.



Let Me tell you some things about this WOW factor that is coming your way. Let Me tell you some things that will peak your interest: Your God has gone to great lengths to bring about the most stupendous scenario for which a heart could long. Your God is bringing forth a scenario that will not only get the world’s attention, but will keep the world’s attention until My return. It will awaken hearts. It will cause many to see things from the proper perspective. It will cause many to come into a relationship with the living God that they never dreamed of having. It will show truths clearly in a fashion that you will be happy and most willing to embrace. It will show the manifestation of My presence in astounding ways. Yes, My beloved, the WOW factor of the living God, your God, is about to be shot OUT the roof, and when this occurs you will applaud Me. You will applaud Me, declaring that I not only live, I am not only ALIVE, I am PRESENT in your life in a most fascinating way.



That is all about the WOW factor for now, but look forward to hearing more. Look forward to leaning more and more about the stupendous hour that will soon be presented, and know that it is coming at great expense, at great expense paid for in advance by your Beloved, your Savior, your God!!!

Re: God is preparing everyone for the Great Warning
Judy is the messenger who was inspired for a third time to repost a message from God the Father saying there is no Rapture. The Rapture is a man-made teaching.

Don't you think the Father is gently sharing when you come
together to worship, this is the fullness. It's not about
fellowship. God is preparing our brothers and sisters in
Christ to understand and accept the Holy Sacrifice of the
Mass.

+ + +



Message to JUDY BAUMAN


January 27, 2011

An exhortation from the Father: Living Stones

Fellowship is important, or I would not have set up My church the way I have. It is the Living Stones which I have hewn must come together to form the building. I dwell in each of you to a determined measure, but in and of yourselves I can only fill you up so much. However, when you all come together the filling in each one of you is combined. This is the fullness that you sense in the corporate setting - the fullness of joy, the fullness of My Spirit. The fruits of My Spirit are all there and the joy that comes from that will strengthen and empower you.

In the places [in My church] where the leaven of the Pharisees has overtaken, you will not have this joy. The joy of those who walk in My Spirit will be full of glory - it is the joy unspeakable. There are also places [in My church] full of the leaven of Herod. It is a worldly yeast that has worked its way in and puffed up the whole congregation. Both the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod puff up and make [those who partake of it] haughty. Pride is always the root! So beware of this when searching out a Body to be connected and attached to.

My church will be built and it will be built to My specifications. If My specifications are not followed exactly, then I will tear down that building and begin again. My foundation is always the same - Jesus is the foundation. He is the Christ and the Only One worthy to open the scrolls. To Him be given the glory or the building will crumble. The works of man must all pass through His eyes of fire. What is left standing will remain.

The church will take on a new look in the coming days. It will not be people coming week in and week out to do their "time" for God, but it will be Living Stones being fitted together by the Hand of the Master Builder Himself. Did Jesus tell His disciples that He was going to make a place?

Do you not know yet nor do you not see that you are the temple of the Living God? Have I not placed My Spirit in you? Are not all My promises, "Yes" in Christ Jesus? Is it now possible for you to say together in one voice, "Amen" to the glory of your Father?

Seek My promises for the Body of Christ and know that I have spoken, "Yes" to them all. You who are called by My name say, "Amen!" Then you will see My glory coming into the Living Stones and you will see a new and glorious church arise in great hope.

This is not for another time. This is for now.

Greetings

This what I received from the Lord
January 1, 2011


The new way is coming in the most unusual way.
All things are possible through me.
The invitation is to all and to all who want it.
Who want me and my ways.

Come it is the advent of worship in it's fullest.
All the things you have heard of and known are here.
It is all starting.
The thread is unraveling now.
My people will come forth.
The oldest to the youngest will know.
Your invitation is only from me and no other.
Your salvation is mine.
You have been chosen above all else.
You are a chosen people by me.
By my choosing.
There is no others around that can compare.
Trust me for I am about to bring it full circle.
Watch what I am about to perform.
I will perform it in you.

I will perform my word that has been spoken.
I have spoken.
You will be with me at my side in the day of battle.
The battles to be fought for the end times.
The Reigning King.
I have come to fight the powers of darkness to rescue my people.
And set the captives free.
I will be with my people in perfect unison.
I am coming to set the wrongs right.
I am coming to gather my people to myself.
They will serve me and be my people.
I have an everlasting love for my people and my kingdom does not end.
The estimation by many will be wrong about who I am.
I will make myself known and will be felt everywhere.

There will be no mistake that it is I.
It will be known that things are changing all around because it is Me.
It will be the knowing of me that will be changing the hearts.
It will be unmistakeable.
It is not a surprise to many that these things will change.
Even the evil one is now on notice.
Man's meddeling into the affairs of God are now over.
No more will man have an effect by man's ways.
It is now just the remains by those actions.
Now the rest of restoration can begin.
All restoration can now be finished.
For there is nothing new under the sun
The dominion of man is now over.
I will now come to take my people back and now finish in them what I started.
I have come to restore all things.
I am coming to rule and reign with the overcomers.
I am not slack regarding my promises.

Re: God is preparing everyone for the Great Warning
Floating high above the Church of the Immaculate Conception, the symphony of bells calls the Catholics of Morris, Illinois, to worship on this February morning. Far below the bell tower, the nave slowly fills with people as I let my prayers ride upon the sound. It is a miracle that my wife and I are here today. A short year ago, I had told my Protestant pastor that I was going to pray for the Catholic people during Lent, that they would come to know the Lord. Now, here I am in this church, eyes clouding with tears, heart filled with peace and wonder—a Catholic once again.

I have become graciously undone. All the things I thought I knew, all of my clever reasons for ridiculing these people, lie mercifully in ruins behind me. Heaped there also is my self-righteous façade, a victim of the Truth. This morning, with nothing else to give God but my ragged self, I will offer that to him again. In a short time, he will give himself to my wife and me in a very real way. The priest will say, "The Body of Christ," and we will say, "Amen!" We will proclaim that which the Church has proclaimed for two thousand years: that Jesus is really and truly present in the Eucharist. Sitting here now, with the sounds and the sights of Catholicism above and around me and with the expectation of the Eucharist before me, I am filled with awe. What a year! What a tumultuous and glorious journey!

"I was born and raised in a Catholic home." This sentence, repeated in all too many conversion stories, must be included in mine. It seems so much more tragic to preface a testimony with this sentence than to relay a happy conversion story that starts, "I was born and raised a staunch Calvinist, but then. . . ." Why? Because when the story concerns a cradle Catholic, it signals that something was missing from what should have been the most wonderful, grace-filled Christian experience on earth. Yes, the good news is that these Catholics have come home, but the disturbing news is that these people felt the need to leave the Church of their youth to recognize God’s love.

Often, in an attempt to assuage the guilt of having left the Church over such issues as clerical abuse, lack of spiritual formation, or coldness in the local parish, an ex-Catholic will turn against the Church and become viciously anti-Catholic. This happened with me. I was not really anti-Catholic when I left the Church, nor did I leave for any heavy doctrinal reason. I left for emotional ones. At the time of my departure, I was very pro-Catholic and longed for the Church to meet my spiritual needs, but was angry that it didn’t.

I left the Church in 1992, joining a small, loving, Protestant church. Eventually I would become an elder of this church, lead men’s Bible studies, and host weekly prayer meetings. Independently of anything taught from the pulpit of this church, I grew even angrier and proceeded to build a doctrinal case against Rome. Every evening, my grudge against the Church edged toward full-blown hatred as I reveled in the writings of professional anti-Catholics such as Dave Hunt and James G. McCarthy. Many a dark night slipped by as I continually "let the sun go down on my anger." Woe to the unprepared Catholic who crossed my path at that time! Woe to my Catholic family members! Hunt’s and McCarthy’s books allowed me to build an airtight case against the Church, but I never considered that if air could not get in or out, neither could the Light. And so, in the darkness of my prejudice, I grew as a misshapen plant. I bore bitter fruit on twisted branches.

I wrote anti-Catholic tracts and opened a post office box with the intent of distributing them. I spent long hours in the library researching local Catholic history in order to compile a "spiritual map" of my community. On a large street map, I marked the location of each Catholic Church with an X (eight in all). This mapping was done in order to target Catholic churches for intense intercessory prayer campaigns. I wasn’t praying for anything so noble as an increase in vocations in the Catholic Church; I simply wanted all the Catholic churches in my community to be emptied. I went to many of these churches, anointed the buildings with oil, and prayed for the salvation of the members there.

In the midst of all this, something miraculous happened. I heard a sermon by a Fundamentalist pastor who seemed to hate the Church as much as I did. In a pivotal moment of my spiritual life, I listened to him and comprehended just what I had become. Suddenly, as when Nathan the prophet confronted the murderous King David, I could almost hear God say, "You are that man, Mark!" It was as if someone had held a mirror up to my face and I saw that I had become terribly disfigured. Hate had turned me into a monster. I listened to this anti-Catholic preacher, I vividly remember wondering what heaven would be like—filled with only the "righteous" like him and me? I came to the conclusion that heaven would be a miserable place if that were so!

Within a month of hearing this sermon, I picked up a book by an "obscure" Catholic named Mother Teresa. A Simple Path challenged my whole conception of Christian service. Here was an elderly nun selflessly giving her whole life to Christ, but there was just one problem: She prayed the rosary! What was I to do? I knew that the rosary was an instrument used in "idolatrous" prayers to Mary; how could this woman serve God and Satan too? For the answer, I turned to Dave Hunt’s book, A Woman Rides the Beast, where he reassured me that "her [Mother Teresa’s] evangelism leads no one to Christ." For some strange (and merciful) reason I didn’t buy Hunt’s counsel this time. I began to wonder, Am I just gathering around me a great number of teachers to say what my itching ears want to hear?

I shared Mother Teresa’s book with my pastor, a kind and compassionate man whom I love deeply, and he was so moved that he preached a sermon on it. Contrary to Dave Hunt’s assertion, people in this Protestant congregation were brought closer to Christ because of this nun’s witness. Seeing this, I knew I had to alter radically my opinion of at least one Catholic, a tiny nun from Calcutta.

I was devastated by all that was being revealed to me about my prejudices. I was horrified by the prospect that some of the very people I had been persecuting may have in fact been "saved." I, of course, had no intention of going back to the Catholic Church, but at least I would be more charitable in my assessment of Catholics. Not wanting to concede too much, I resolved to re-read Dave Hunt’s book to see what I could salvage of my case against the Church.

I started reading A Woman Rides the Beast for a second time, but this time something was different. Whereas in the past this book made me feel smug about my escape from the "Whore of Babylon," it now caused my case to collapse in ruins. This book is so internally inconsistent and mean-spirited that I could only shake when I read it again. If Hunt had written in the same manner about the Jewish people, he would be termed an anti-Semite and be featured on Nightline. Consider the following quotation: "Those conditioned to believe that wine had become Christ’s blood were able to believe Hitler’s myth of blood as well." How could I have been so blind to his prejudice?

As I studied this book, something else became apparent. In his rush to pummel Catholics, Hunt also wounded Martin Luther. With his assault on Luther’s "heretical" belief in the Real Presence, he shook my trust in sola scriptura. Luther and Hunt both believe that Scripture alone should be used to determine doctrine. Yet, while using Scripture, these men were at opposite ends of the spectrum on what seemed to be a key doctrinal question: Is Christ physically present in the Eucharist? Hunt said this belief was "a fantasy" and "a foolish heresy" and cited many verses to support his belief. Luther disagreed, as he explained in A Treatise Concerning the Blessed Sacrament and Concerning the Brotherhood:

" There are those who practice their arts and subtleties to such an extent that they ask where the bread remains when it is changed into Christ’s flesh and the wine when it is changed into his blood; also in what manner the whole Christ, his flesh and blood, can be comprehended in so small a portion of bread and wine. What does it matter? It is enough to know that it is a divine sign, in which Christ’s flesh and blood are truly present—how and where, we leave to him.".

Hunt claimed that Luther had been unable to jettison this belief from his Catholic upbringing, but Luther’s writings clearly show that he used Scripture to support this belief, as is shown in his Small Catechism:

" What is the sacrament of the altar? It is the true body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, under the bread and wine, instituted by Christ himself for us Christians to eat and drink. Where is this written? The holy Evangelists, Matthew, Mark, and Luke, together with St. Paul, write thus: ‘Our Lord Jesus Christ, in the night in which he was betrayed, took bread; and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, Take, eat; this is my body, which is given for you; this do in remembrance of me.’"

Hunt had a problem, and so did I. Using Scripture alone, we had come to an impasse. Sola scriptura did not seem to be a valid method for solving this important doctrinal dispute. Either Hunt was right or Martin Luther was right—or both were wrong. In any event, sola scriptura had failed to weed out an error in doctrine. Someone was teaching a lie, but who? What Luther (using Scripture) saw as the Body and Blood of our Lord, Hunt (using Scripture) saw as a fantasy and heresy.

I saw that it ultimately came down to a standoff between Dave Hunt’s and Martin Luther’s interpretations of Scripture. I started to wonder, Am I just following the "traditions of men" by trusting Hunt, or am I following the intentions of Christ? This question started to burn inside of me. How would I resolve it?

I was dismayed to discover that I could not even bring this disagreement to the "church" as instructed by Jesus in Matthew 18. In this discourse to the disciples, he outlined a three-step procedure to use if one had something against a brother. Included were the consequences to be incurred if one would not submit to correction. I reasoned that Hunt’s charge of heresy would qualify as having "ought against a brother." Jesus’ solution was not to take this problem to Scripture (remember, that’s how we arrived at this impasse), but instead to take it to "the Church." It suddenly became clear that I couldn’t do this. Which Protestant church would I have brought it to? Dave Hunt’s church? The Lutheran church that he had charged with heresy? Perhaps a "neutral" Protestant denomination like the Baptists? If the Baptists, which Baptist church? The Regular Baptists? The Southern Baptists? The American Baptists? Which one of the thousands of Protestant denominations should I bring it to?

Which Protestant church would be given the final authority to cast one or both of these men out as "tax collectors and sinners"? And if they were cast out, what would stop them from simply starting up another church, one custom-tailored to their own particular teachings? The end result could be two new denominations—and a direct repudiation of Christ’s command that this excommunication would be binding "in heaven and on earth."

I began to see that, in spite of the Protestant insistence on the Bible being the "court of last appeal," sola scriptura was an unworkable doctrine. Without an authoritative Church with the authority to bind and loose (in heaven and on earth), Jesus’ solution for conflict resolution in was ludicrous. I reasoned that Jesus loves us too much to give us worthless solutions; therefore, this authoritative Church must exist today, just as it must have existed from the time he issued the command. This Church must have been exercising this authority throughout Christian history, definitively judging heresies such as Gnosticism and Pelagianism as being contrary to the Truth.

I read the Church Fathers and saw that the belief in the Real Presence could be traced back to the early martyrs; the early Church consistently held that Jesus was really present in the Eucharist. From this discovery I developed for the Eucharist an intense hunger that would not dissipate. I wanted to belong to a living Church tradition, to be joined to a family that had its beginnings in the Upper Room and that had continued to defend the faith until this present day.

I discovered that I didn’t have to search for a Church to weigh the merits of Luther’s doctrine. Jesus Christ already had established a Church that had done just that. In the end, Dave Hunt had done what the Catholic Church had failed to do. He had destroyed my trust in sola scriptura.

With these revelations came a necessary pruning. As branch after twisted branch of prejudice was cut off, I felt great pain and turmoil. I know that, were it not for the love of my wife and the grace of God, I would not have survived the process. I did not want to leave the wonderful people at my church, and, as sad as it might sound, I did not want to leave the comfort of the dark little box into which I had tried to squeeze the richness of Christianity. On another level, I did not want to commit my life to a Church with which I was still angry. I did not want to eat the crow that people would be lining up to feed me. Not surprisingly, this thinly-veiled pride was the last obstacle to be overcome.

But I learned to lay my pride and anger aside as I prayed about Jesus’ question in Luke 6:46, "And why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say?" I slowly came to a conclusion: If someone is serious about obeying Christ, and if that person makes an honest and careful study of both Scripture and Church history, he ultimately will feel compelled to come into the bosom of the Church—or suffer the utter misery of living a life of compromise.

My return to the Church happened on a quiet evening at the local monastery. There was no fanfare, no grand ceremony. I sincerely stated my intention to obey the teachings of the Church by making a profession of faith, and then went to confession with my family. Together with our fellow Catholics, we received our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament during a public Mass. After a four-year rejection of the Eucharist, I could only weep. The sublime nature of the moment was heightened by the realization that this church had been marked by a small X on my map.

On the edge of the woods near the monastery stands a statue of Jesus with arms outstretched. A detail of this statue had caught my attention while compiling my map two years earlier: The statue had no right hand. Such was my suspicion of the Church that this missing hand was proof to me of Rome’s diabolical nature. The Bible had much to say about the importance of God’s mighty right hand, and here was a symbol of the Catholic Church’s negation of God’s power. So, X marked the spot.

I pointed to the statue during one of my first meetings with the priest who brought me home. "See," I challenged, "Christ has no right hand!" Father Gabriel turned calmly toward me and said, "Mark, you are his right hand." My thoughts turned to Mother Teresa and my own stumbling journey to this place, and conviction followed.

I had been so intent upon making God do my will that I hadn’t even considered following Christ’s insistent call to humble service. The sheer arrogance of my approach to "healing" the spiritual wounds of my community became brutally apparent.

Now, when I leave Mass at the monastery, I can see this statue that still challenges me to continue this lifelong process of dying to self.

What I love about this site is that there are the most gullible people in the world right here so be proud of yourselves. So lady comes on with this stupid nonsense and everyone bits the bullet. This wow factor is no in Scripture yet Christians and non Christians suck it up. What Scripture I ask is referring to this wow factor. Notice the silence or made up nonsense. Where is this nonsense in Matt 24 ? Now for the non Christians why do you believe this ? And for the starter of this thread are you on drugs or just your imagination running freely ?

mrsnacks, Hi,

Step up to the plate, you give me the Scripture that says
all of God's revelation is contained in the Bible AND that
the Bible is our only authority?

You can't. No Protestant has been able to...ever.

To help, the Great Warning is spoken of in Revelation 6,
the last verses...14 on....I believe.

Now it's your turn.

Re: God is preparing everyone for the Great Warning
Some Christians getting upset because they see the Protestant
messages are pointing to the Great Warning.

They shouldn't be...at long last we will all believe the same.

Re: God is preparing everyone for the Great Warning
The bolded, it's the Great Warning. Again, what is
worship in it's fullness? The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
Christians are going to be brought full circle to what
the Apostles were taught and believed.

Greetings

This what I received from the Lord
January 1, 2011


The new way is coming in the most unusual way.
All things are possible through me.
The invitation is to all and to all who want it.
Who want me and my ways.

Come it is the advent of worship in it's fullest.
All the things you have heard of and known are here.
It is all starting.
The thread is unraveling now.
My people will come forth.
The oldest to the youngest will know.
Your invitation is only from me and no other.
Your salvation is mine.
You have been chosen above all else.
You are a chosen people by me.
By my choosing.
There is no others around that can compare.
Trust me for I am about to bring it full circle.
Watch what I am about to perform.
I will perform it in you.

I will perform my word that has been spoken.
I have spoken.
You will be with me at my side in the day of battle.
The battles to be fought for the end times.
The Reigning King.
I have come to fight the powers of darkness to rescue my people.
And set the captives free.
I will be with my people in perfect unison.
I am coming to set the wrongs right.
I am coming to gather my people to myself.
They will serve me and be my people.
I have an everlasting love for my people and my kingdom does not end.
The estimation by many will be wrong about who I am.
I will make myself known and will be felt everywhere.

There will be no mistake that it is I.
It will be known that things are changing all around because it is Me.
It will be the knowing of me that will be changing the hearts.
It will be unmistakeable.
It is not a surprise to many that these things will change.
Even the evil one is now on notice.
Man's meddeling into the affairs of God are now over.
No more will man have an effect by man's ways.
It is now just the remains by those actions.
Now the rest of restoration can begin.
All restoration can now be finished.
For there is nothing new under the sun
The dominion of man is now over.
I will now come to take my people back and now finish in them what I started.
I have come to restore all things.
I am coming to rule and reign with the overcomers.
I am not slack regarding my promises.

No hard feelings to those who recently replied and I commented to...my intention was to show you.

I placed the bolded lines together.

Roman Catholicism will be "the new way" for former Catholics and cafeteria Catholics, definitely for our Protestant brothers and sister and revealed in a most unusual way...interiorly...to each person.
Only the RCC claims to have the fullness of truth, it follows she has the greatest means of worship, the Holy
Sacrifice of the Mass.
It's going to be a shock to find out who Jesus is..accepting His Church for the unprepared and those
who have been "wrong" all their lives, most not their
fault, from childhood taught falsehoods about
the RCC.
Trust what you are shown, it is full circle. If you
read what the men taught by the Apostles believed you
will understand it comes around to the beginning.
In the beginning there was one Church.
"perform it in you" of course is the Great Warning

and the last two ~

Once God shows you, how can there be doubt? Hearts
will be changed. This will be like Pentecost but for
the entire world, truly unmisteable.

Re: God is preparing everyone for the Great Warning
Who was given the "keys" of authority in the New Covenant?
Peter. Jesus established an authority and a hierarchy when
He established His Church.

So close, BRADY MATHIS using this Scriptural confirmation yet so far away. It's going to take God to show our brothers and Sisters in Christ.

These days are opportune moments for breakthrough. Opening and closing doors in the spirit will have quick and powerful effects on many levels. If you will discern your present situations in terms of what you will permit or prohibit and make a spiritual transaction of authority to open the doors of My purposes or close the door against Satan’s destruction it will be done. Take the time to look and I will show you what you need to know and how to pray in the moment. Go boldly, rejoicing though the gates that are opened before you!

Isaiah 22:22
The key of the house of David I will lay on his shoulder; So he shall open, and no one shall shut; And he shall shut, and no one shall open.

Re: God is preparing everyone for the Great Warning
90:14 And I saw till that Man who had written down the names of the shepherds and brought them up to the LORD of the sheep came, and He helped that buck and showed it everything, that its help had come down. 90:15 And I saw till that LORD of the sheep came to them in anger, and all who saw HIM fled, and all fell into HIS shadow before HIS face.
I'm sorry but this does not make sense. It could be referring to anything. It could be about God in New Zealand.

Let Me tell you some things about this WOW factor that is coming your way. Let Me tell you some things that will peak your interest: Your God has gone to great lengths to bring about the most stupendous scenario for which a heart could long. Your God is bringing forth a scenario that will not only get the world’s attention, but will keep the world’s attention until My return. It will awaken hearts. It will cause many to see things from the proper perspective. It will cause many to come into a relationship with the living God that they never dreamed of having. It will show truths clearly in a fashion that you will be happy and most willing to embrace. It will show the manifestation of My presence in astounding ways. Yes, My beloved, the WOW factor of the living God, your God, is about to be shot OUT the roof, and when this occurs you will applaud Me. You will applaud Me, declaring that I not only live, I am not only ALIVE, I am PRESENT in your life in a most fascinating way.
Wow, what a load of bull. I'll give you the wow factor!!

Hi,

Are you a Catholic disbelieving a Protestant messenger?

Mary Clark is Protestant friend. The "Wow" factor is the
Great Warning. "It will awaken hearts"...sounds like the
"awakening"...which is the Protestant term in current prophecy for the Great Warning.

Ask yourself...what is "the manifestation of My presence?"
Referring to Our Lord's presence and how is that denied
today in Protestantism? Really since 1517.

Christ's presence in the Holy Eucharist.

Re: God is preparing everyone for the Great Warning
I feel the "Vicar" is not reliable anymore, because God is sending direct messages to others than him.

Is the reason that the Church has been taken over by a protestant Anti-pope already?

If not, could it be that the Church as a Temple of God has no mission anymore beside causing only to mislead people.

In that case I believe in Jesus' Word that we should perhaps know that the Temple of God is our bodies and the Holy of Holies is our hearts.

So then the "abomination of desolation" is what we get when we listen to the churches to day. That we shall believe in another gospel than what Jesus and the apostles preached.

This I believe can be the WOW-factor in these messages. Concerning all the speaking of "changing of the hearts", is that the real "abomination of desolation" perhaps?

No offense...just a question.

However, by the way, Jesus has said that not even a little tudle shall be added or taken away from His Word.

Concerning "the restoration", didn't Jesus also say that "the Earth and the Heavens" shall flee away before His face and that He will make a New Heaven and a New Earth. (Rev 20:11 and Rev 21:1)

Rev 20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.


Rev 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
