Jeremiah 6:1 Blow the trumpet in Tekoa, and raise a signal on Beth-haccherem; for evil looms out of the north, and great destruction.
“Beloved, do not despair at these words. They do not signal an end, but a beginning. The glory of the Lord has yet to be seen, and what a sight it will be! All heaven is waiting in joyful expectation. Then raise your heads, my children. Do not lose hope, no matter what you see. For the glory of the Lord is a promise you can rely on, a hope you can cling to, a joy beyond anticipation. Be hopeful, my beloved ones, and pray for the virtues, especially courage. I will not deny the higher gifts to those who ask, so ask! Children I am near.”
O beloved Father of my heart, I praise and thank you for these words of love and encouragement. In the Divine Will in the name of everyone and through the Flame of Love, I implore your gracious gifts, all the virtues, especially courage, and all the higher gifts. Lord, we have no hope but you, no joy but you, no promise but you. Maranatha! May your kingdom come and come quickly! Amen.
Ezra 6:3 King Cyrus issued a decree: Concerning the house of God at Jerusalem, let the house be rebuilt.”
“My beloved, can there be any doubt that my house must be rebuilt? Yet, I do not speak of a temple made of stones, but the temple of the Holy Spirit, which is the human heart. Humanity has pulverized the temple within their own breasts. Now the exile begins, when each one feels the absence of God. Woe to you! There is much to suffer. Yet, I issue a decree: The temple of the human heart shall be rebuilt. What you labour for will come to birth, not stillborn, but robust, healthy, and strong. You will rejoice at the new life of the temple and will think on the sufferings no more. Once the temple of the human heart has been put in right order, all else will naturally follow. Then do not fear the sufferings of the present moment, but let your panting and pushing usher in a new era of peace and abundant joy.”
O Father, thank you! Give us strength in the Divine Will to bring to birth the Era of Peace. Take all our panting and pushing and use it all for your glorious purposes. Help us to remain faithful, even in time of dire darkness and abandonment. Let our wills be one with yours so that in every moment we may say with Jesus and Mary, “Fiat! Here I am Lord, I come to live in your holy and adorable Will.” Amen.
Psalm 9:15 The nations have sunk in the pit that they made; in the net that they hid has their own foot been caught.
“Beloved, there is indeed much more to come. For those people and nations that do not repent of their evil ways, sorrow and woe will fall upon them. They will reap a bitter harvest, exactly what they have sown. But do not despair, my little ones, for unless the sinner feels the pain of his own sin, his chance for repentance lessens. A good parent does not shield his child from consequences, but certainly his vigilance and care for that child increases. When the child returns contrite in spirit, the parent is waiting with arms outstretched. So it is with the great and many sinners of this age. Their bitter harvest will sour their own stomachs. But when they return to me contrite in spirit, I will be waiting with outstretched arms. Pray for their conversion, dear children. Be tireless workers in the sweet harvest of souls.”
Merciful Father, in the Divine Will I offer you all the sufferings of all the saints throughout history, linked to the pure suffering of the Cross, for the conversion of all sinners—individuals and nations. In the Divine Will use all these sufferings, as well as my poor offerings, to fill your crown with the jewels of converted sinners. May our Mother intercede on our behalf. Amen
Joel 1:15 Alas for the day! For the day of the Lord is near, and as destruction from the Almighty it comes.
“Beloved, the labor pains are in full blossom, yet the labor is not over. For just as for a woman nearing the time of giving birth the pains intensify, so too you will see much more in the coming days. Just as a woman has to keep in mind what she is laboring for, so you too should keep in your mind the promised Era of Peace. Crucifixion must come before resurrection. Like the woman, keep breathing, keep praying, and concentrate on the work at hand. All shall be well dear children. I am near.”
Beloved Father of my heart, I love you! In your mercy, keep us from despair as we labor to give birth to your gift of peace. What joy that will bring to us. May your kingdom come and come quickly. Amen.
Zephaniah 1:17 I will bring such distress upon people that they shall walk like the blind, because they have sinned against the Lord.
“Oh my child, how I long to take all my dear children to my breast to comfort, heal, and restore them. But they turn away from my love, from my merciful heart. They run headlong into their own grief and destruction. In their sinful folly, they bring distress on their own heads. Woe to all the inhabitants of the earth! Sorrow and woe! Little remnant, do all you can in prayer and sacrifice to offer reparation to my much-wounded heart. Do you think I take delight in the death of the sinner? On the contrary—I long for him to turn back to me and live. Pray constantly, dear children. I am coming to restore the earth, but first, what is corrupted must be destroyed. Lean close, my children. I am with you through it all.”
O my Jesus, draw me closer to your merciful heart than I could ever manage on my own power. Take all that I have to give, my joys and sorrows, my weakness, my love. Take my every thought, word, deed, heartbeat and breath, purified in the Flame of Love, and in the Divine Will apply it where it would do the most good. Jesus, I love you, I trust you, I surrender myself joyfully to your loving, perfect plan for all humanity. Maranatha! Come, Lord Jesus! Renew the face of the earth!
Matthew 5:11-12 “Blessed are you when people revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”
“Children do not fear persecution. It is a sign of great favor. Do not fear that which can harm the body, but cling to me as a little child clings to its mother or father. Let go of your fears. Trust in me. Know that I am most near to you in your times of great trial. Remain steadfast. Defend me and I will defend you—it is that simple. Those who do not lose faith will be richly rewarded. Ah, but this is not difficult—even under duress—for the one who places all her trust in me and none in herself. Left to yourself, you will crumble and fall. But I am ready with untold gifts if you place all your trust in me. Yet, even if you crumble, draw near to me and I will move you faster and farther than you dreamed possible. Give me your weakness and let me transform it. Do you see now why you must not be afraid? Look at me. See my love for you. Enter into my pierced heart. There you will be perfectly safe. Come to me, my children. Draw near.”
O my Jesus, give us joy in all circumstances, the joy of knowing that you are near, so near to us. Take your hand, Jesus, and lift us into your pierced heart. Plant us firmly there, Beloved, so that we will not be put to shame, but will use the gifts you offer to defend you and your Bride. Jesus, I trust in you. I love you! By your grace, may your name always be glorified in me. Amen.
Matthew 5:10 “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
“Beloved, do not fear persecution, but see it as a sign of great favor. Through it you grow to resemble me more and more. When the Father looks at one who has been persecuted for my sake, he does not see a weak and weary soul, but only the glory of the Crucified. Pray for strength to endure all that will gain you the kingdom. Persevere, and the God of all mercy will reward you with a glorious crown. I am with all those who suffer for my sake. I am very near to them. Let no one despair, but let all those who are persecuted for my sake be filled with the joy that surpasses all understanding.”
Oh my Jesus, thank you for your nearness and for this timely word of encouragement. Give us strength. Help us to persevere. Let us feel your nearness in our time of need, and if we do not feel it, give us the grace to trust in your unfelt nearness with all our hearts. Jesus, we trust in you. Thank you for all your favors—whatever form they take. Amen.
Matthew 2:17-18 (After the slaughter of the innocents by Herod) Then was fulfilled what had been spoken through the prophet Jeremiah: ‘A voice was heard in Ramah, wailing and loud lamentation, Rachel weeping for her children; she refused to be consoled, because they are no more.’
“My child, who is weeping for the children now? Not only are the innocent being slaughtered, but innocence itself is being slaughtered. The Son of Man again has no place to lay his head, for filth covers the earth. My child, heaven weeps over the loss of innocence. The brightest light has been extinguished from the earth. Weep and wail, my children, over the slaughter. Gird your loins, for the King of Glory will not allow wickedness to triumph. The days of evil are numbered and the enemy grows frantic. Cling to me, cling to my Mother. We are near to you. Be ready, dear soldiers. Fight the good fight with every spiritual weapon I have given you. The triumph is near.”
Oh my Jesus, in the Divine Will I offer all the Masses offered from the Last Supper to the last Mass, in reparation for the slaughter of innocents through abortion, and the slaughter of innocence through pornography and vile teachings. Lord have mercy on us. Flame of Love work in us to defeat evil and blind the enemy. May innumerable souls take up the special graces you offer. Jesus and Mary, lead us! Protect us! Fight in us! We place all our trust in you. Amen.
(Here is a Novena to the Holy Innocents for the protection of children.)
Ezekiel 9:3-6 The Lord called to the man clothed in linen, who had the writing-case at his side, and said to him, ‘Go through the city, through Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of those who sigh and groan over all the abominations that are committed in it.’ To the others he said in my hearing, ‘Pass through the city after him, and kill; your eye shall not spare, and you shall show no pity. Cut down old men, young men and young women, little children and women, but touch no one who has the mark. And begin at my sanctuary.
“My child, weep and wail, sigh and groan over what sin has purchased for the world. For it has purchased annihilation many times over. Yet I tell you, do not despair; remain in hope. Pray for all, but especially those who will die suddenly. The greatest tragedy of all is a lost soul, and so many have no one to pray for them. My little warriors, you have much work to do. Do not let one of my little ones be lost for lack of prayer. I am granting many graces. Ask and you shall receive—grace up on grace—so that your work for souls will bear abundant fruit. Children, PRAY, and offer sacrifices. Multiply them in the Divine Will and you will see miracles. The floodgates have been opened. Give me everything and I will give you more than you can imagine!”
O my beloved Father, grace upon grace! In the divine will grant us all we need to complete the task set before us. We praise you and thank you for calling us and equipping us for this important work. Jesus we trust in you—save souls! Amen.
Jeremiah 9: 6-7 Oppression upon oppression, deceit upon deceit! They refuse to know me, says the Lord. Therefore, thus says the Lord of hosts: I will now refine and test them, for what else can I do with my sinful people?
“Oh my beloved, what sorrow is coming to sinful humanity, but what joy as well! Remember this when the hour is dark, when you feel the crushing weight upon you that sin has purchased: that the measure of joy which follows the sorrow will be so much greater as to render the sorrow a distant memory. Just as you will not be able to imagine joy in the deepest darkness, so too when the darkness is banished, will you be unable to imagine such depths of sorrow. Children, when the Healer binds your wounds, he does it so completely as to banish the pain even from memory! Yes, I am making all things new! Cling to hope with joy, my children. I have come that my joy may be in you and your joy may be complete. Live my will in each moment, dear children, and be at peace. Shalom.”
O my Jesus, what hope! What joy to anticipate so glorious a day as the day you come to deliver us from darkness and bind our wounds. Jesus in your mercy, keep us from despair. Help us to cling to you with an act of the will, even when we cannot feel your presence. Help us cling to you in the rosary. Jesus and Mary we trust in you! Take care of everything! Amen.
