CHRISTIAN MEDITATION 2

Untitled-1

“Be Still an Know that I am God”

 A strong believer in Christian meditation, Padre Pio stated: “Through the study of books one seeks God; by meditation one finds Him”.  

Meditation involves coming to a stillness of spirit and a stillness of body. The extraordinary thing is that, in spite of all the distractions of the modern world, this silence is perfectly possible for all of us. To attain this silence and stillness we have to devote time, energy, and love.

The way we set out on this pilgrimage is to recite a short phrase, a word that today is commonly called a mantra. The mantra is simply a means of turning our attention beyond ourselves, a method of drawing us away from our own thoughts and concerns. The real work of meditation is to attain harmony of body, mind, and spirit. This is the aim given us by the psalmist: “Be still and know that I am God“. In meditation we turn the searchlight of consciousness off ourselves.

In meditation we are not thinking of or imagining God at all. In meditation we seek to do something immeasurably greater: we seek to be with God, to be with Jesus, to be with his Holy Spirit. In meditation we go beyond thoughts, even holy thoughts. Meditation is concerned not with thinking, but with being. Our aim for Christian prayer is to allow God’s mysterious and silent presence within us to become the reality which gives meaning, shape, and purpose to everything we are. The task of meditation, therefore, is to bring our distracted mind to stillness, silence, and concentration.

To meditate, seek a quiet place, and find a comfortable upright sitting position. Close your eyes gently. Sit relaxed but alert. Silently, interiorly, begin to say a single work. We recommend the prayer phrase “Maranatha”. It is utterly simple. Say it like this, MA-RA-NA-THA. Four equally stressed syllables. Some people say the work in conjunction with their calm and regular breathing. The speed should be fairly slow and fairly rhythmical. Continue reading CHRISTIAN MEDITATION 2

THE NORMAL DECENT LIFE 2

MAGIC OF ENTHUSIASM

What’s wrong with living a normal decent life and going to church on Sundays?  It is possible to live uninvolved with the work of God, with all our efforts directed toward our own prosperity and self-fulfillment.

 We may even catch ourselves thinking that we will surely have no experiences of God like those of the saints.  Yet why did not those who knew Jesus and loved Him not recognize Him after the resurrection?  Could it be that only those with faith eyes, that were sharpened, knew Him?  In fact, when we do make some faith assessments of our lives, we marvel that God actually saved us in circumstances so ordinary.  Most of the time we miss it.Faith

Through faith and in joy we can begin to have our own religious experiences.  You will be amazed when you plod through each day with a little faith to assess events.  The sacred and the secular become one — even the everyday stupid details, arguments, or chats.  Most of the time we miss the significance of the daily because we are always waiting for dramatic situations to arise.  Continue reading THE NORMAL DECENT LIFE 2

LIFE AFTER DEATH  2

KINGDOM OF GOD: LIFE AFTER DEATH

There is pseudo-scientific evidence for those who still wonder or who can never comprehend anything in the spiritual realm. There are well documented personal encounters in a life after death occurrence where people died for short periods of time and came back to relate their experiences: a voyage in a long tunnel toward a light that most believed it to be God. Their whole life passed before them in seconds while in the presence of a judgment of a Supreme Being. Thereafter they are momentarily reunited with people that had died previously in an unbelievable peaceful milieu from which they did not wish to leave. Obviously in this life-after-death experience, their spirit was always forced to return to their bodies.

Conversely in a few instances the spirit was drawn into a more foreboding place. In one true story, a recovering drug addict thanked his assailant, a drug enforcer for saving his life, the life of his wife and his two children. In the hospital emergency where he died for a half hour, his spirit witnessed a foul frightening abyss. This experience scared him so much that he eventually became a born-again Christian. He was enthusiastic to recall this story to the drug enforcer who had broken his arm in many places; he wanted to tell him that he forgave him.

Stories like this appeared in the book section of the Reader’s Digest collected by a heart surgeon. This was based on a book, LIFE AFTER DEATH, written about 250 people from all over the continent who experienced similar phenomena and who did not know each other. This article attracted so much attention that the Reader’s Digest devoted the book section of a subsequent month based on all the letters they were receiving.

A recent Angus Reid poll (Feb/96) found that most Canadians are interested in almost everything spiritual-except the churches.

IN GOD WHOM WE TRUST 2        

          Untitled-7

HOPE AND TRUST 

The Lord has fairly specific plans for us and it is possible to find out what they are. We have to believe IN GOD WHOM WE TRUST: God  is anxious to communicate with us and would do just that if only we would get serious about hearing from Him. The problem is that we are attached to doing our own will. We have to have a real desire to do what God wants. That is Hope and Trust.hope trust

Nothing else in the whole world is worth doing more than the will of God. Of course, if we want to know the Lord’s will, if we want the wisdom, we have got to ask. (James 1:4) We have to seek the Lord’s will while telling Him that we will do it whatever it is. Until we say that prayer of abandonment, the Lord will have difficulty getting through to us. Then the waiting becomes the toughest part of the equation. We have to become skilled in waiting for Him Psalm: 37:7

One form of discernment occurs with a group of people committed to each other. Through coincidences or unexpected happenings one member will think he or she has caught the Lord’s direction. The group will respond to an authentic word when they hear it from a member. There is a peace in their hearts that is hard to mistake. No major moves are made without receiving the Word.

One final word of caution: we have to know it is all right with God if we get it wrong. He can deal with our mistakes. His plan is very flexible. Honest mistakes are part of the learning process. So we shouldn’t take ourselves seriously. God knows we are often imperfect and fallible. We may discover the hard way that something that was not God led at all was a complete waste of time, energy and money.

All the wisdom on earth does not compare to divine wisdom, the gift of God, and insight into His will for all of us. That’s the wisdom that you want. If the Lord has a plan for you, it must be assumed first, that He is willing to convey this wisdom to you, and second, that there is a way that you can get hold of it.

Divine Justice of God 2

Thunder of Justice

    Divine Justice  

This hour of Mercy is about to end and all the earth, all mankind, will see and feel the hour of God’s Divine Justice.  His chastisement is upon you.  The entire earth WILL be purged and all mankind will suffer greatly!

       This day is upon you when every nation, every island is about to feel God’s mighty wrath. 

Many areas will be completely annihilated- -gone forever.  Millions of lives will be lost, many forever.

       Children, I tell you a great destruction with much persecution is NOW coming to earth.  God’s arm IS falling.  No one anywhere will escape it.  Sin and ill-pleasure has blinded most of mankind.  The stars will fall, the sun too.  Storms of all sorts will penetrate the earth.  Men will know terrible fear as the Voice of God thunders in their ears.

       The sky will darken, the air will be rancid, the water poisonous, the food tainted.  Temperatures will escalate and plummet within hours.  Sickness and suffering will be everywhere.                                           
       Yes, the entire earth WILL shake and all will feel it.  As our God has said, ‘all will worsen’ yet few are concerned for sin and Satan has such a firm hold on them.  They cannot see past their present moment of sinful pleasure.  They are blinded to reality for their souls have been abducted by the devil. 

       You can no longer be lukewarm.  You must choose sides today.  By choosing God you will receive strength and peace to see you through it all.  His great Divine Light WILL lead you.  He will remove all fear from your hearts and minds for His Mercy endures forever to those who love, follow, obey and fear Him.

To procrastinate is foolish for tomorrow may be too late.  Remember, you know not the day OR the hour when the Master will call you.  Be prepared!  Believe!

New-Age

The New Age Movement

Then God spoke, “This day will see much turmoil for the quakes will increase and the core of the earth will split thus the earth will be loosed from its axis! Such a crisis has never been seen since the creation of the world. Sins of magnitude proportion have caused the hand of justice to fall, to destroy, to annihilate.

Each day, each hour brings you closer to the demise of life on earth as you know it. Each time there is a quake this great catastrophe becomes closer to reality. And it will be !!!

I say to My own- -be ready for the moment is nigh. Then all I’ve spoken of WILL begin- -everywhere. Rest assured that I will take care of My own.

Thousands are already homeless and hungry. Soon they will also feel the cold and need coverings (clothing). Their land lies barren and many shelters (local and state) are already overcrowded.

This is just the beginning! People do not see or understand the real cause of all these events. All is punishment for your many free will sins. No part of the world is exempt! No human is sinless! Each time you hear the news or read of it you will see that all is worsening.

My heart is greatly afflicted because of the numbers of sin in the world.
There is no end to abortion … and now Satan has begun to use all his powers to thrust his own religion into the world. Truly he has given the New Age movement great powers.
I have come to tell you that these are lying wonders he works, and that you are now living in the Age of Lying Wonders.

My dear children, please amend your ways and pray for those who are involved in witchcraft and the New Age movement.

Love-Cold

Love Gone Cold

In just one single generation, our “intellectuals” have persuaded, what is now a majority, that human life in the womb is disposable; that old-age, depression, and sickness are reasons to end your life; that your biological sex is irrelevant, and that exploration of what was once considered devious and perverted behavior is now “healthy” and “good”. Suicide rates are climbing and considered “epidemic” in many countries, and it is no wonder: we are a generation taught that there is no God, that everything is random evolution, that we ourselves are not only meaningless particles, but the worst enemies of the planet. And perhaps the greatest attack on human dignity and worth is the plague of pornography that, almost single-handedly, is destroying self and mutual respect and the true meaning of beauty in the greater portion of the population. When we hate ourselves, how can we love our neighbor? When the view of one’s own sexuality and meaning is twisted, how can we view others otherwise?

Thus, with such an attack on the value of life, sexuality, and the family—in a word, all that is good—it now makes complete sense why St. Paul penned these words:
Understand this: there will be terrifying times in the last days. People will be self-centered and lovers of money, proud, haughty, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, irreligious, callous, implacable, slanderous, licentious, brutal, hating what is good, traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, as they make a pretense of religion but deny its power.                                                                                                 2 Timothy 3:2-5

Forget earthquakes, plagues, and famines—the above, to me, is one of the greatest “signs of the times.” Indeed, speaking of the “end times”, Our Lord Himself correlated lawlessness with an accompanying decline in civility:
because of the increase of evildoing, the love of many will grow cold.                                                                                                                    Matthew 24:12

Consequence of Sin

October 14, 2011–155

All this is a consequence of sin: the wold is saturated with the blood of innocents. God’s children have accepted to live in all sorts of sin and worst still, they don’t believe that sin exists: they have banished the word from their language. All is permitted—even the sins against nature. They don’t think of the Commandments and the laws of God. Many even attack the Church.

Different Sects

December 12, 2011 –141

It had been announced at Fatima (1916—one hundred years ago) and at Salette (1846) that the Church will undergo great persecutions; without any resistance, people will listen to false prophets.

There are so many different sects that abound through the world, who have as its goal to destroy Christ and all that is sacred in His churches. These sects include masons, Rosicrucianism (La RoseCroix), New Age, Occult Science, etc.  “You will not have other gods except Me. I am the Lord, your God.” Deuteronomy 5 The Churches are nearly empty: the third commandment is almost forgotten and we exlude God on the day that is reserved for Him. God gave us six days and on the seventh day, He asks us to honor Him and to meditate on His Word.

September 19, 2011 — 144

Occult sciences and false doctrines enslave souls. See a priest for deliverance.

People believe in everything except the holy Bible (doctrine). My Immaculate Heart is most afflicted at the sight of the great number of children who have let themselves be shackled by occult sciences of all kinds, by the New Age… You are led to believe that these practices do no harm and on the contrary, that they are good for your health, to be in shape, to remain autonomous, that these techniques are safe, etc. Look at how many people of all ages have fallen into these traps, even children in school. Yet, we conceal from you what is behind all of this.

Satan himself is camouflaged as an angel of light and makes you believe blindly in yoga, in reiki, in tai-chi, in therapeutic touch, in esotericism, in energy transfer and in so many other things that have as a goal to distance you totally from you Lord and your God, your Father.

Saint Paul has told you: “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires” 2 Timothy 4, 3. This is the period that you are in.

Discern what pleases the Lord, I beg you, my children, and take no part in the sterile works of the darkness, for the Lord has told you: “You shall have no other Gods before Me. I am the Lord, your God.” Deuteronomy 5

“I am the Light of the World. Those who follow Me will not walk in darkness, but will have the Light of life.”                                           John 8:12

Divine Mercy: the Second Coming

ASTONISHING PREDICTIONS

God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions  shows 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.

The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.

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

Christianity and Hinduism Differences

BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!

Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is  a relationship with God, your Creator,  in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles.  

HOW DO WE KNOW THIS?

1. DELIVERANCE?

Some Christian disciples use deliverance to deliver away evil spirits influencing people. These evil spirits cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress. 

2. COMPLETE SENSE OF PEACE?

After you have been delivered from evil influences, you will have a definite physical experience of a complete sense of peace.

3.  HEALING?

Once you experience a physical sense of peace because of deliverance, you know that you will be healed. This helps you build up your faith, which is very crucial: No faith! No healing!

Some Christian disciples have the gift of healing.   Only the Name of Jesus Christ makes healing and deliverance possible.

THE WHOLE FAMILY BENEFITS

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.

AN EXPERIMENT OF GOD’S TOUCH 2

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.
