God is my Search Engine; not Google. Part 3

On Saturday April 2nd, a combination of groups voluntarily gathered together in a large regional serious prayer meeting for some hours . As a Catholic, it is not hard to spend a long time in prayer; in communion with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit as we have a rich tradition of prayer from which to draw. The mood was sombre, for we spend Holy Week reflecting on Christ’s Passion and Death which assists us to recall and confess our sins with deep and true contrition, better appreciating the gift of Salvation wrought for us on Good Friday on the Cross. We love Jesus, we rejoice in His Victory and His Rising and we feel immense gratitude for this Gift, especially in view of our unworthiness. Our aim, on this first Saturday after Easter, which fell the day before Divine Mercy Sunday, was to pray for the many different groups of souls, that they may receive of His Salvation too, in these difficult times and before it’s too late. With the Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia less than a week away, our other immediate concern was that all Christians would see and uphold The Truth of God’s Word, despite the errors which would likely be spread through this modernist assault, disguised as ‘mercy’. We felt, and fear, the ominous rumble of God’s Wrath.

That evening, after our prayer meeting, I opened on:

Wisdom 18: 14-25 (Douay Rheims Bible) 

[14] For while all things were in quiet silence, and the night was in the midst of her course, [15] Thy Almighty Word leapt down from heaven from thy royal throne, as a fierce conqueror into the midst of the land of destruction.

[16] With a sharp sword carrying thy unfeigned commandment, and he stood and filled all things with death, and standing on the earth reached even to heaven. [17] Then suddenly visions of evil dreams troubled them, and fears unlooked for came upon them. [18] And one thrown here, another there, half dead- shewed the cause of his death. [19] For the visions that troubled them foreshewed these things, lest they should perish and not know why they suffered these evils. [20] But the just also were afterwards touched by an assault of death, and there was a disturbance of the multitude in the wilderness: but thy wrath did not long continue.

[21] For a blameless man made haste to pray for the people, bringing forth the shield of his ministry, prayer, and by incense making supplication, withstood the wrath, and put an end to the calamity, shewing that he was thy servant. [22] And he overcame the disturbance, not by strength of body nor with force of arms, but with a word he subdued him that punished them, alleging the oaths and covenant made with the fathers. [23] For when they were now fallen down dead by heaps one upon another, he stood between and stayed the assault, and cut off the way to the living. [24] For in the priestly robe which he wore, was the whole world: and in the four rows of the stones the glory of the fathers was graven, and thy majesty was written upon the diadem of his head. [25] And to these the destroyer gave place, and was afraid of them: for the proof only of wrath was enough.

I believe this is about the coming Chastisement (made clear in verse 20) which follows on from The Warning (or Illumination of Conscience) ( see verses 14-19) confirming that those who will die at ‘the Warning’, may be saved by proclaiming their faults as they are dying, due to the visions (of their guilt) given to them.

Death and chastisement will touch some of the faithful as well (verse 20). But  Christ will shorten the chastisement through His Mercy for the sake of the elect (verses 21-25).

We had been praying by name for those who need healing in body, mind and/or soul (Crusade Prayer 94)  and also for souls who may die during the Warning (Crusade Prayer 1- My Gift to Jesus to Save Souls) which is connected to this interpretation.

I know some people think scripture has only one meaning which can either be applied at the time or to the future, and will think that the passage was only about the Egyptians.  However, some passages as Jesus clearly shows us in the Gospels, applies to both! He Himself fulfilled prophecies in a new way that some had thought already fulfilled like a closed book.  And he Himself, and later His apostles opened the scriptures before our very eyes, that we would see the Eternal Word in the amazing way God created it- as a Living Word and yet the same, yesterday, today and tomorrow.Later this understanding of scripture was confirmed to me through another website quoting the Catechism.

*For more information on Divine Mercy Sunday please visit DivineMercy.org. Those who have not heard of The Warning (otherwise known as The Illumination of Conscience or The Great Day of Mercy)  I will post some information for you soon, but in the meantime you might wish to try Google, or better still…God! While this may sound light-hearted, the truth is that discernment and Wisdom are very important, especially in regard to The Warning, so please humble yourself in sincere prayer to accept all God is offering and the direction in which He will lead you. I will be praying for you and with you, dear brothers and sisters +. Amen
