WARNING END TIMES 2

Warning of End Times

HERE IS THE WARNING of END TIMES: “My cries resound and shake the entire heavens leaving all My angels trembling for what has to come, I am a God of Justice and My Eyes have grown weary watching hypocrisy, atheism, immorality; My creation has become, in its decadence, a replica of what Sodom was; I will thunder you with My Justice as I have thundered the Sodomites; repent, creation, before I come;

I have indeed forewarned you many a time but you have not followed My instructions; I have raised up saints to warn you, but daughter, they have closed their hearts; My creation would rather live in lust and ignore Me; I have given them signs to awaken them.”                        

Vassula writes down the messages which she receives in a stately handwriting, quite distinct from her own. (unity)  She hears, interiorly, a voice first, then , when she has to write down what she has heard, her writing changes.                                                                                  TLIG.org

“I wish that these parts of Timothy be read in public as a warning:            1 Timothy 4:1-16, and 6:20-21 and 2 Timothy 2:14-26; these prophecies were especially pronounced for your times; then in                    2 Timothy 3:1-17 in this passage it foretells the state of your era, to be found now; for these are the last days before the end of Times.”                                                                                                                  June 2, 1988

“My Ecclesia will revive, but before this renewal She will suffer even more; She is in the beginning of Her Tribulations;

My Cup of Justice… is very near to spill over; it will only pour out on you, creation, revealing the anathema prophesied long ago; you will be plunged into darkness; I will come to you like a thief, unexpected.

“Daughter, have My Peace and be willing and eager to receive Me; I tell you most solemnly, the hours are fleeing, dissolving like shadows and already you are living in the first signs of My Return; already the first birth pangs have started, but like Folly, My creation laughs it off, rejecting My first signs, they refuse to believe that the birth pangs have already begun!”                                                                                 August 25, 1988

“Your perversity, generation, and your disloyalty have pierced all Eternity, leaving the pillars of heaven trembling, your iniquities have made destitute your spirit from all wisdom; if you knew how My angels tremble to see what is awaiting you … earth that will be covered by your own blood by your apostasy! Earth who will tear yourself to pieces before the very eyes of My angels! If you all understood the tremor that has to come you would not waste, as it is now, your breath in empty words and in godlessness.                                                                    May 1, 1989

I, the Lord, pour out My Spirit to prepare you, to teach you from heaven, and call for your repentance and call you for your conversion, I am a God of Mercy who bends all the way down to you in these days of Grace to save you.”

“I come to deliver you from evil, I do not come to menace you, I only come to warn you out of My Infinite Mercy; My very core yearns to possess you and make you Mine for all Eternity and invest you in dazzling white robes; My Heart seeks desperately to drag you away from your abominations; I am calling but so many of you today would not answer, I speak through weak instruments but many of you would not listen; instead these people treat My messengers as impostors, these people would rather choose to do what displeases Me most: take their life… 1.”                                

1take their life…” Just three words that mean much more than that. It also means that those who attack the Holy Spirit and suppress It, the Holy Spirit who speaks through the messengers, suppressing the warnings of God. These people are responsible for the souls that shall be lost. The Holy Spirit of Grace today has chosen to wake us up with what our generation needs: multiplication of revelations, messages through apparitions. Fatima’s call was not taken seriously, it was ignored for 13 years. It was a warning. The result was the Second World War and communism.                                     April 10, 1990

I saw in a vision that I was looking from outside a window. It was daylight. Suddenly the earth started to shake violently under my feet. The ground was going up and down. The earthquake was eight points. It was not stopping. I looked from the window at the sky because it was losing its luminosity. I was staring up at the heavens while they were becoming darker by the second until they reached to become full night. Then I saw the stars falling, or rather, it seemed like they were speeding away from the eastern horizon to the western horizon; it seemed like they were leaving the heavens. Then the tremor stopped and there was a menacing darkness. I saw that I had a faint light in my room. I looked out of the window, but there were about three or four houses which had a light in the whole town.                                                                                                                         July 21, 1990

“My Perpetual Sacrifice you have abolished from within you because you have lost your faith, generation; how many of you are thirsty for Me? very few come to drink Me, and yet you can drink Me without money; who is hungry for Me? you can have Me free, at no cost at all; yet almost no one is hungry to eat Me.”                                   June 6, 1991

“Do not be afraid when the hour of great distress comes if you were constant and kept your faith, for this Hour has to come to change the face of this earth; thus everything said at Fatima will be accomplished.”

“The earth will shiver and shake – Every evil built into Towers will collapse into a heap of rubble and be buried in the dust of sin! Above, the Heavens will shake and the foundations of the earth will rock! Pray that the Father’s Hand will not come down in winter.”                                                                                                                                                September 11, 1991

“I had warned you, but you paid no heed; My suffering is great but how else am I to expel the merchants from within My Church? How am I to throw out the vipers from their nests inside My Sanctuary if I am not to come with Flame and a Blazing Fire? Traders, merchants, the lot will be extirpated and this could be done only by Fire!”    November 13, 1991

“Mankind are celebrating these days without My Holy Name; My Holy Name has been abolished and they take the day of My Birth as a great holiday of leisure, worshiping idols;

Satan has entered into the hearts of My children, finding them weak and asleep; I have warned the world; Fatima’s Message speaks: that in My Day I shall make the sun go down at noon and darken the earth in broad daylight; I will allow the Dragon to bite this sinful generation and hurl a Fire the world has never seen before or will ever come to see again, to burn her innumerable crimes.”                      December 24, 1991

“When you will hear peals of thunder and see flashes of lightning know that the Hour of My Justice has come; the earth will shake and like a shooting star, will reel from its place, Isaiah 13:13 extirpating mountains and islands out of their places; entire nations will be annihilated; the sky will disappear like a scroll rolling up,                   Revelation 6:14  as you saw it in your vision, daughter;    July 21, 1990 

warning end times

A great agony will befall on all the citizens; and woe to the unbeliever! Hear Me: and should men say to you today: ‘ah, but the Living One will have Mercy upon us, your prophecy is not from God but from your own spirit;’ tell them: although you are reputed to be alive, you are dead; your incredulity condemns you, because you refused to believe in My time of Mercy and prohibited My Voice to spread through My mouthpieces to warn and save My creatures, you shall die too as the bad.”                                                                                               February 18, 1993

When My Day comes, the sun will turn as black as coarse sackcloth; the moon will be aflame and the very foundations of the earth will shake, and like entrails pouring out of an abdomen, the earth will vomit out its demons; when this happens, men will long for death but will not find it! then, the sky will roll like a scroll and immediately will dissolve in flames and all the elements will melt in the heat; that day is coming and sooner than you think; I will fulfill these prophecies in your own lifetime.

 

warning end times

When that Day comes, good and bad will perish alike; the bad for having displayed only wickedness and the good for not hearing My warnings; although you had seen many things, you did not observe them; and although your ears were open you did not hear Me; which of you is listening now?

When all these things will have come to pass, I will re-erect My Perpetual Sacrifice into the Holy Place as it was in the days of old; immediately after, all the nations and all the inhabitants of the earth Revelation 6:15-17 will worship Me and will acknowledge Me as the Sacrificial Lamb in the Perpetual Sacrifice – the ban will be lifted (of the Perpetual Sacrifice) Revelation 22:3 and My Perpetual Sacrifice will be in its Holy Place again; from thereon it will never be night again because My Presence (In the Eucharist, the Holy Sacrifice)  will be shining on all of you; Revelation 22:5 Then, once again, everyone will come and drink My Blood and eat My Body, recognising My Sacrifice; everyone will, with one voice and one heart, serve Me day and night in My Sanctuary, and I will spread My Word in each heart.”                                                                                                                                          December 22, 1993

“Creation, do not be locked in the same sleep for ever; I mean to display the holiness of My great Name among the entire earth, yes, even to the pagans I will display the holiness of My Name;                 Matthew 24.30

Creation, the various crops are not what nourishes you and maintains you on your feet, but My Word, which preserves all who trust in Me; this is why I ask all of you to approach Me, you who love Me, and inherit the Kingdom prepared for you since the foundation of the world! do not say: “Our Master is taking His time,” then set about sinning; what makes you believe you could remain unnoticed in your sin? If My Return comes slowly, wait, for come It will, and without fail; the Master will come on a day you do not expect.”                                             April 12, 1994

“My Love for souls passes every possible understanding and I tell you, My thirst for wretched souls is great! how can I then remain indifferent, My Vassula? How? When hordes of nations fall into apostasy and rebellion? Today’s rebellion is even greater than the Great Rebellion known in the past; does a shepherd abandon his flock? I am your Shepherd and I love My little flock.”                                         June 26, 1994

Vassula Reydon received a host of messages from God, which she compiled in her notebooks, called True Life in God. The above excerpts come from her conversations with Jesus.

WHAT DOES GOD REALLY WANT?

In the words of the poet, E.E. Cummings, that “the ears of my ears awake and the eyes of my eyes are opened”.

ASTONISHING PREDICTIONS

God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions  show a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17  (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE.

Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in China in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today.

CHINA AND THE HOLY SPIRIT

In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family.  The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ.  No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY.

HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?

Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth. 

Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.

This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels  two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.

He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical  sense of peace.

DREAMS AND VISIONS

God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart.  God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.

THE SECOND PENTECOST 2

New Second Pentecost

Second Pentecost 

God is counting the days, the days where He will pour on you like dew reviving you again into a New and Bountiful Garden; this will be known as the New or Second Pentecost; come and kneel all of you and pray to the Lord for the Glorious Event; pray for this Coming.”               August 9, 1988

Vassula Reydon, who is on the podium, received a host of messages from God, which she compiled in her notebooks, called True Life in God. The following excerpts come from her conversations with Jesus:

“Today, I invite you all to pray with fervor for the renewal of the Church, for the second Coming of the Lord: for the second Pentecost                                                                                                                                                 April 22, 1990

New Second Pentecost

“I have little time left now; these Times of Mercy and Grace are almost over; I am not concealing My Plans, nor am I hiding My Face, I am revealing as never before My Face; and you, My beloved ones, your duty is to go and spread these Messages of the Second Pentecost, and what the Spirit teaches.”                                                                             August 6, 1991

“I will send you My Holy Spirit in full force on all mankind, and as a fore sign I will display portents in heaven as never before; there will be a second Pentecost so that My Kingdom on earth will be restored; many of you ask: “when? when will all these things take place?” it is not for anyone to know times or dates that the Father has decided by His own authority.”                                                                                  December 10,1995

The time for your purification is drawing near; what I will do is out of love, your purification will be to save you from the gates of hell; I will descend upon you like Lightning and renew you with My Fire; My Spirit of Love will redeem you by drawing you into Love and consume you into a living flame of love; I will let My Spirit pour out of heaven and purify your blemished souls into holy spotless souls, purifying you as gold is purified in fire; you will recognise the Time of Salvation and when My Spirit of Love will descend; unless this happens you will not see the New Heavens, nor the New Earth I foretold you;

My child, by My Fire, by My Love, by My Mercy and by My Justice, My seeds (us) will sprout and open like new lilies which face the sun, seeking My Light and My Dew; and I will pour from My Heavens My Light, embellishing you, and My Dew, nourishing you, to see a new era of Love;

By My Power, I will sweep away all iniquity, perversion and evil; I will descend upon you like a violent torrent of cleansing waters and wash away all your evil and leave you standing upright as columns of pure gold.”                                                                                                      August 17, 1988

CATASTROPHES: SIGNS & WARNINGS 2

1. SIGNS and WARNINGS

SIGNS & WARNINGS

Untitled-1 - Copy

                                                                                      A Cross in the Sky

August 4th, 2012 –126
Prepare, my children, you will soon start to see things that have never been seen, the time remaining will be increasingly shortened. Everything will soon change and people will not have time to convert, to change their conduct, because they will have left everything to the last moment. Convert, make peace with God, time is quite short.

I have told you to look to the sky, for a great sign will appear. It will be the Glorious Cross of my dieing Son Jesus and everyone will see it. It is the sign for you to prepare for the Illumination of Consciences; it will come from the east to wake up all of humanity. Look at the sky and you will see.

From The Illumination of Conscience by Sulema  2011 -2014:

July 7, 2011–113

See how the seasons are changing now: spring is different and the summer is sometimes hot and sometimes cold. As a consequence of the displacement of the axis of the earth, we will see dramatic changes.

August 5, 2011–127

You have already seen signs of dead birds and signs of dead fish on the beaches around the world.

Your Sacred Heart of Jesus: Vol 2, November 29, 2012–175
Here come dark days, sad, where the suffering will be so great that living will envy the dead.

Look around you how the distress is great; people no longer know what to believe, who to follow; everything is in shambles. Follow My road, My children, for it is late, the transformation of the earth has already begun. Soon you will start to live extreme meteorological changes. Winter will be very different, My children, at times it will be hot, and sometimes for long periods. Summer also will be very hot, there will be areas that will become unlivable, which you will soon see.

Last October, you saw hurricane Sandy and the great damage that it left in its wake. I tell you, hurricane Sandy was a beginning of the transformation of the earth. You will see how everything will worsen; the wind will be relentless in its course.

What will it take to wake you and make you understand the language of nature? She [nature] is talking to you, listen to her! She asks you to cease offending God, the Creator, to stop disobeying Him and to follow His Laws of Love.

Hurricane Sandy

Hurricane Sandy

2. The Warning

August 1, 2011–125

These events will begin gradually in different parts of the world. Then there will be a great catastrophic event:

 Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming.” Matthew 24:42

Take My words seriously, for very shortly you could regret it. The hour is grave; pray, adore, repent of all the evil that you have committed, in the sacrament of reconciliation in order to be in a state of grace when the time comes.

Don’t say that there have always been warnings like this. This warning is true and you will be very surprised.

Mary Queen of Peace: April 6, 201, Vol 342
My Immaculate Heart bleeds from seeing these days of sorrow that approach.

My Son has told you that the secret of Fatima is being accomplished; you are living the beginning of the end of times. Do not be afraid of the coming days, the Glorious Return of my Son must be prepared; these events are necessary, they are before you. The world will suffer from new diseases and plagues, you will see great phenomena in the Sky, floods will be more serious, for the water will clean the earth and fire will purify it. The fury of nature will surpass everything you have seen in the past, the earth will shake in its depths.

I come to prepare you to traverse these days of purification, and it is why I ask you to consecrate yourself to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and to my Immaculate Heart, your only refuge, where you will be sheltered from all kinds of bad weather.

3. Brutal Catastrophes

April 27, 2011–81 

 You are being warned so that you may better prepare.  It has already begun. Man is destroying everything and no one is taking responsibility. The world will undergo a very great economic chaos. It will be necessary to live with just essentials and to learn how to share what you have.

We are talking about all kinds of catastrophes: earthquakes, tsunamis, flooding, freezing, blistering winds and storms, mortal heat, and comet invasions – things that you would never believe possible in a few places throughout the world.  Europe will have a very heavy cross to carry and the United States will be seriously affected. Canada will not escape some trials.

September 30, 2011–148

The Indian Plate will set in motion a large tsunami. The turbulent power of the oceans will scare humanity. (The Indian Plate or India Plate is a major tectonic plate straddling the equator in the eastern hemisphere.) Continue reading CATASTROPHES: SIGNS & WARNINGS 2

The World Problem 2

World Problem

–Bertrand Russell

THE WORLD PROBLEM

The World Bank estimates that the world problem is that a quarter of the world is chronically under nourished. It is shocking to know that this problem has been with us for centuries. This problem seems too remote for most people. Hunger continues to initiate the most violent wars. People who are out of work and are starving are the stuff of which dictatorships are made. Yet, no one truly desires anyone to suffer or starve.

A Meaningful Existence

Most of us live for tomorrow: it will be better, richer, wiser and more secure. We are all searching for something that will make our existence more meaningful. Even the ancient Egyptians believed that upon death they would have to answer two questions: “Did you bring joy?” and “Did you find joy?” We truly have an obligation to be the best person that we can. Any new learning, which will aid us in obtaining that goal, will benefit  everyone. Each of us has something special to contribute. There is something that each of us can do if we are willing. Finding ways to become involved is a good beginning. We can use the time that we are given to give birth to our potential — our human trademark. We are challenged  to see new possibilities. We are living at a time of abundant new beginnings.  It is actually exciting when people come to grips with their own uniqueness as individuals. We are constantly told that nothing is free and that every investment has to have a return. Yet, over 50% of people volunteer their time at something to improve society.

An Earthly Paradise

The Buddhist tell a story of the frog lodged at the bottom of the well, which cannot  ever understand the limitless expanse of the sky. If we can only step out of our own perceptual traps, we can begin to see the beauty and goodness. An earthly paradise is not some far-off impossible destination. It can be a loving voyage in the here and now. We are responsible for creating our own paradise and the time to start the voyage is NOW.

The Save-the-World Mind Set

We are living through a period of an unprecedented social and technological change.  This rapid advancement in technology and human networks have exponentially opened up new pathways to actualizing one’s passions. People want to broadcast and express themselves and even cultivate a following. There is an increased global awareness and connections to others in remote areas. Many people do not associate helping the poor around the world as a calling from God. They think that Christianity is a laundry list of vague beliefs that have little meaning on how they spend their time. Actually, they lack a deep understanding of their faith and that following Jesus is a way of life..

Many people aspire to science-related careers. Some people assume that science has cornered the world on knowledge: things are only true when they are tested with scientific methods. There is a name for this: scientism. This thinking must not become more important than obedience to God.

Here is what Sir Isaac Newton said about his belief: “ I have a fundamental belief in the Bible as the Word of God, written by those who were inspired. I study the Bible daily.” He credited his Creator with the existence of the universe. Each moment has a life upon itself with as much potential for joy and happiness as we are willing to bring to it: life is wonderful; joy is our birthright and love is what it is all about.

Love

Having more of anything other than the love for God and neighbor will leave you dissatisfied with relationships and possessions. To love is the greatest of human experience and sooner or later we discover that life without it is empty and meaningless. Love is always worth the effort. Kindness in giving creates love. Each of us bears a torch but we must keep it lit. The hope of tomorrow is that these blazing torches will provide hope for tomorrow. We want to leave the world a better place for our having to be in it.

To Build a Team

Today people don’t want to be only hearers of faith but also doers — to put feet to their faith: action on behalf of others. This is empathy: the ability to understand and take on yourself the burden of others to serve and restore God’s world. God has made all things and He is making all things new for you. So what has God called you to do in partnership with the community of Christ-followers?  How can you be on a mission in the world for Christ, based on what you are gifted to do?

The Prophecy: “It will all come about when history has been completed. God will then bring together all things in heaven and on earth under one ruler. The ruler is Christ.”                      Ephesians 1:10

The Timing and Seasons of God

“Follow the way of love and eagerly desire gifts of the Spirit, especially prophecy.”                                                                    Corinthians 14:1

The Prophet, Isaiah, prophesied in his day 700 years before Christ: “For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace.         Isaiah 9:6

“Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away.”                                            Matthew 24:34

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.”                                                                                                 Isaiah 55: 8, 9

“But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.”                                                                                                                                                      2 Peter 3:8

So what is God saying to us through his Word?

“After two days He will revive us; on the third day He will restore us, that we may live in His presence.” Hosea 6:2 This means that God has a plan and a purpose in His will: a restoration and release of all things spoken of by the apostles and prophets: “for time is at hand” Revelation 22:10 “For the Lord will carry out his sentence on earth with speed and finality.”                                                                     Romans 9:28

See, I am doing a new thing!

“Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:19 A new thing? Wow!  God is about to do things in and through His Church.

If we will hear God’s Word and believe in it, we can be God’s prophetic pioneers who will help God fulfill it. After all we are co-laborers with God. “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know Him. Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. All who have this hope in Him purify themselves, just as He is pure.”                                                                                                                                              1 John 3:1-3

So Christ suffered and died for our sins so that He might bring “many sons unto glory.” Hebrews 2:10 That means that God has predestined that there will be those who will think God’s thoughts, manifest His majesty, portray His power and glorify His grace without pain and confusion. This will come about like a butterfly emerging from its cocoon.

 Yet every restoration brings a revolution. New wine cannot be contained in old wineskins: it will burst forth. ”They pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.”                  Matthew 9:17

How will this begin?

MIRACLE OF LOVE 2

MIRACLE OF LOVE

MIRACLE OF LOVE

Depending on God means depending on love. When we choose to love, or choose to allow our minds to be one with God, then life becomes wonderful.

When we shift to a give-mentality from a get-mentality, we believe that we have so much abundance that we can afford to give it away. Then God gives to us in return. When you give all your gifts in service to the world, you will become inspired with new energy. You are motivated when you know that your love is being used to heal all wounds.

YOUR LOVE AND GRACE

Take, Lord, receive all I am and all I’ll ever have. You have given all to me. I return it. Give me only your love and your grace. That’s enough for me.

As long as we are willing to be used in His service, He will give us miraculous powers. No one has any more potential than anyone else for spreading the love of God. Just relax and let it be. Our power is the Spirit within us. Don’t be frightened by our own light — it is meant to shine. Continue reading MIRACLE OF LOVE 2

PRAISE WORKS 2

PRAISE WORKS

Praise and Thanksgiving

Praise and thanksgiving are often united in the same text. We enjoy being loved and thanked, as does God. God is worthy of our praise daily because of all the wonderful gifts that He gives us.

God doesn’t want groveling subjects. He wants love and friendship. Genuine praise and prayer is the act of loving. Be moved to love God with your whole heart and with your whole mind and with your whole strength.

The prayer of praise is the highest form of communion with God. It releases a great deal of power of God in our lives. There is a ladder of praise. Climb it by learning to praise God in all things. Those who make it will find a way to live in continual joy and praise on earth now — not at some distant future.
Praise Him for the mighty things He has done!                  Psalm 150:1

They must thank Him for His constant love, for the wonderful things He did for them!                                                                     Psalm 107:8 Continue reading PRAISE WORKS 2

CLOSE TO GOD 2

HOW CLOSE TO GOD DO YOU WANT TO BE?

CHRIST’S MASS: HOLY COMMUNION

The Sacrifice began in the Upper Room, where Jesus voluntarily offered Himself as the living High Priest, the victim and the Lamb of God to be sacrificed at Calvary, which took place with His death. Jesus was celebrating the Jewish Passover, where from the days of the Passover and the Exodus, the Israelites commemorated God’s words. This one “Sacrifice of Praise” (Hebrews 13: 15) transcends time with the words Jesus said at the Last Supper, “Do this, in commemoration of Me”. This is known as Holy Communion and this is where you can become close to God.Holy Communion CLOSE TO GOD

At the mass, as at the sacrifice of Calvary, Jesus Christ, God/man is offered in sacrifice. A Victim must be offered and partaken of. Our Lord, the living High Priest is standing at the altar during each consecration: “A Lamb standing, a Lamb that had been slain “(Revelation 5: 6). He shows his wounds to the Father on behalf of the assembly at mass lead by the priest so that He “might lead you to God. He was put to death insofar as fleshly existence goes, but was given life in the realm of the spirit.” (1 Peter 3: 18) So we participate with “a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ “(1 Peter 2: 5). Christ has died. Christ has risen. Christ is with us. Christ will come again in glory.

Try to imagine the scene of the Last Supper and imagine Jesus speaking His Word to you personally and uniquely, “This is My body … this is My blood.” St. Paul writes, “Is not the cup of blessing we bless a sharing in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread we break a sharing in the body of Christ?” (1 Corinthians 10: 16). The Savior spoke of the need for us to eat His flesh and drink His blood in order to have life (John 6: 54). We come to the One who overcame death, the Living Lord, whom we receive. What a presence!

Historically, Jesus came to restore communion between God and man that was lost in the Garden of Eden. He came from Bethlehem (House of Bread) to Jerusalem to give us the Bread of Life. It is this “daily sacrifice” (Daniel 11: 31) and this “pure offering” (Malachi 1: 11) that brings us so close to God. What a moment! What a feeling of love and peace! What a gift from your Friend on your journey!

The Eucharist represents the presence and the absence of Our Lord. It makes the past become present to us and keeps our sights on the future.

You usually value the intimacy of human friendship. Actually the Lord Himself fills you with the love, that your heart craves. He is your faithful Companion and your most gentle and compassionate Lover. When everything seems to be against you, you still have your God. The trust in His strength is the only weapon that you need.

So we all must travel a spiritual journey — the journey of our own lifetime. The bread of life in the “daily sacrifice” is our spiritual food. For some to accept this way of thinking requires something called faith: the belief in what may appear to be the unknown: “I am the Resurrection and the Life. Those who believe in Me will live, even though they die: and whoever lives and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this? Continue reading CLOSE TO GOD 2
