Sacred Heart of Jesus have mercy on us

Notes of meeting on 5 August 2014

Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
He wants to draw our cold hearts into the warmth of His loving Heart.
He wants to draw all people close to His Heart
Blood and water flow from Him over all.

2 Timothy 2 v 11 - 26
11 Here is a saying that you can rely on: If we have died with him, then we shall live with him.
12 If we persevere, then we shall reign with him. If we disown him, then he will disown us.
13 If we are faithless, he is faithful still, for he cannot disown his own self.
14 Remind them of this; and tell them in the name of God that there must be no wrangling about words: all that this ever achieves is the destruction of those who are listening.
15 Make every effort to present yourself before God as a proven worker who has no need to be ashamed, but who keeps the message of truth on a straight path.
16 Have nothing to do with godless philosophical discussions -- they only lead further and further away from true religion.
17 Talk of this kind spreads corruption like gangrene, as in the case of Hymenaeus and Philetus,
18 the men who have gone astray from the truth, claiming that the resurrection has already taken place. They are upsetting some people's faith.
19 However, God's solid foundation-stone stands firm, and this is the seal on it: 'The Lord knows those who are his own' and 'All who call on the name of the Lord must avoid evil.'
20 Not all the dishes in a large house are made of gold and silver; some are made of wood or earthenware: the former are held in honour, the latter held cheap.
21 If someone holds himself aloof from these faults I speak of, he will be a vessel held in honour, dedicated and fit for the Master, ready for any good work.
22 Turn away from the passions of youth, concentrate on uprightness, faith, love and peace, in union with all those who call on the Lord with a pure heart.
23 Avoid these foolish and undisciplined speculations, understanding that they only give rise to quarrels;
24 and a servant of the Lord must not engage in quarrels, but must be kind to everyone, a good teacher, and patient.
25 He must be gentle when he corrects people who oppose him, in the hope that God may give them a change of mind so that they recognise the truth
26 and come to their senses, escaping the trap of the devil who made them his captives and subjected them to his will.

Working for the harvest

Notes of meeting on 29 July 2014

Picture of people gathering in the wheat which was ripe and fully laden.
The workers were gathering the sheaves and bringing them to a beautiful young woman dressed in workers clothes and a scarf around her head. She was happy with the yield.
The woman was our Blessed Mother and she gathered up the sheaves and presented them to her Son and they both were happy and joyous.
Jesus then directed his Mother to other fields and so the workers joined her in harvesting these crops also, some were good, some variable but all were gathered in joy. Even he crops that were of poor quality or diseased were saved by the diligent application of the workers.

It was felt that Jesus was saying to us that if we work through Mary even hopeless cases can be saved. She, under the direction of her Son, works so hard to save all her children.

Luke 18 v 1 -8
1 Then he told them a parable about the need to pray continually and never lose heart.
2 'There was a judge in a certain town,' he said, 'who had neither fear of God nor respect for anyone.
3 In the same town there was also a widow who kept on coming to him and saying, "I want justice from you against my enemy!"
4 For a long time he refused, but at last he said to himself, "Even though I have neither fear of God nor respect for any human person,
5 I must give this widow her just rights since she keeps pestering me, or she will come and slap me in the face." '
6 And the Lord said, 'You notice what the unjust judge has to say?
7 Now, will not God see justice done to his elect if they keep calling to him day and night even though he still delays to help them?
8 I promise you, he will see justice done to them, and done speedily. But when the Son of man comes, will he find any faith on earth?'

Galatians 5 v 18 - 26
18 But when you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law.
19 When self-indulgence is at work the results are obvious: sexual vice, impurity, and sensuality,
20 the worship of false gods and sorcery; antagonisms and rivalry, jealousy, bad temper and quarrels, disagreements,
21 factions and malice, drunkenness, orgies and all such things. And about these, I tell you now as I have told you in the past, that people who behave in these ways will not inherit the kingdom of God.
22 On the other hand the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, trustfulness,
23 gentleness and self-control; no law can touch such things as these.
24 All who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified self with all its passions and its desires.
25 Since we are living by the Spirit, let our behaviour be guided by the Spirit
26 and let us not be conceited or provocative and envious of one another.

so that all the earth's inhabitants may acknowledge that you are the Lord the everlasting God.

Notes of Praise and Intercession Meeting 22 July 2014

Picture of the whole world one half in light the other in darkness.Then the whole world was plunged in darkness and it was if the whole world was in despair. The world was in turmoil there was weeping, groaning and lots of tears.
Suddenly a huge light appeared and enveloped the world turning the night into day the whole of the world was lit by the piercing but gentle light. People were on their knees bowing their heads, some in gratefulness, some in shame, but all were touched by the gentle penetrating light.
All the people confessed or gave praise and not one person failed to acknowledge that the Redeemer was at work. The knowledge was in each persons heart that Jesus the Strong Deliverer was present. The Prince of Peace was working a great miracle on mankind and there couldn't be the slightest doubt in any heart who he was be they Christian, Jew, Buddhist, Muslim or evildoer. In each heart was felt an overwhelming gratitude for the love Jesus bore for each person.
All who were in conflicts lay down their arms and embraced their enemies, all those who had cheated or defamed anyone begged for forgiveness and embraced. Even the animals stopped foraging and eating instinctively knowing that something wonderful was happening.
Heaven had reached down to earth and Satan and his darkness had no where to go and plunged into their own void.
It was a glorious sight to see humanity with its Father God, Jesus the Son and the Spirit of Light.
Jesus walked among us once more and we could feel we were home.
Our pleas had been answered, we were truly all brothers and sisters in Jesus our Deliverer.

Ecclesiasticus 36 v 16-17
16 Grant, Lord, the prayer of your servants, in the terms of Aaron's blessing on your people,
17 so that all the earth's inhabitants may acknowledge that you are the Lord, the everlasting God.

It is by the merits (fruits) of the love of God expressed in the life death resurrection ascension of Jesus and the gift of the Spirit that we are saved and have new life.

Trust in Him who made you. Abandon yourself to Me.

Rescue me

Notes of Meeting on 15 July 2014

Picture of a man whose soul was to be judged. Satan came to him and revealed his true self as the murderer, Satan mortally wounded the man and claimed him for himself. The man seemed to be being impelled into a vortex of blackness which was Hell. The man was terrified yet in his mind he realised that he had wasted his life doing terrible things and even acting against God and his people. He knew that he deserved to go to Hell.

Then the man could hear the gentle voice of a woman at prayer and several others all pleading for him. In his terror he screamed out 'Jesus please help me, Jesus please hear me, Jesus I'm sorry'.

Then the Cross of Christ went into the vortex and the man grasped onto it laying himself upon it like a person in a storm at sea hanging onto driftwood. He clung to the Cross crying all the time 'I'm sorry, forgive me'. All was all peaceful and the woman came and helped to release his fingers from the Cross and as she did so the man realised that he had been laying on the crucified Christ and that he was covered in His Blood.
Our Lady covered the man in her mantle and led him away, his face was at peace, full of relief and wonder and in his gratitude he couldn't stop saying 'Thank you'. The man's mortal wound had also been healed.

Hebrews 10 v 17
Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more.

In the picture above it was felt that Jesus was asking us to keep up our prayers and showing us how our prayers united with Our Blessed Mothers really are effective.
The prayers helped release the grace that allowed the man to call out for mercy even at the very doorway to Hell.
We are not children any more to be fed milk, we are part of Jesus' Body and partake in the real food that is his Body and Blood. We need also to take up our cross, which is His Cross, and stand our ground with courage against the evil one.
The Body and Blood of Christ will fortify us in carrying out the call and work he has for us.
he loves even the most hardened sinner and asks us to cooperate in his work. He loves us!

Psalm 119 v 169-170
169 May my cry approach your presence, Yahweh; by your word give me understanding.
170 May my prayer come into your presence, rescue me as you have promised.

1 John 5 v 1 -13
1 Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is a child of God, and whoever loves the father loves the son.
2 In this way we know that we love God's children, when we love God and keep his commandments.
3 This is what the love of God is: keeping his commandments. Nor are his commandments burdensome,
4 because every child of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world -- our faith.
5 Who can overcome the world but the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
6 He it is who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ, not with water alone but with water and blood, and it is the Spirit that bears witness, for the Spirit is Truth.
7 So there are three witnesses,
8 the Spirit, water and blood; and the three of them coincide.
9 If we accept the testimony of human witnesses, God's testimony is greater, for this is God's testimony which he gave about his Son.
10 Whoever believes in the Son of God has this testimony within him, and whoever does not believe is making God a liar, because he has not believed the testimony God has given about his Son.
11 This is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
12 Whoever has the Son has life, and whoever has not the Son of God has not life.
13 I have written this to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.

Matthew 12 v 10 - 21
10 now a man was there with a withered hand. They asked him, 'Is it permitted to cure somebody on the Sabbath day?' hoping for something to charge him with.
11 But he said to them, 'If any one of you here had only one sheep and it fell down a hole on the Sabbath day, would he not get hold of it and lift it out?
12 Now a man is far more important than a sheep, so it follows that it is permitted on the Sabbath day to do good.'
13 Then he said to the man, 'Stretch out your hand.' He stretched it out and his hand was restored, as sound as the other one.
14 At this the Pharisees went out and began to plot against him, discussing how to destroy him.
15 Jesus knew this and withdrew from the district. Many followed him and he cured them all
16 but warned them not to make him known.
17 This was to fulfil what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah:
18 Look! My servant whom I have chosen, my beloved, in whom my soul delights, I will send my Spirit upon him, and he will present judgement to the nations;
19 he will not brawl or cry out, his voice is not heard in the streets,
20 he will not break the crushed reed, or snuff the faltering wick,
21 until he has made judgement victorious; in him the nations will put their hope.

Come be infilled by Me your Saviour

Notes of meeting on 8 July 2014 
Picture of a plant in the desert that could find no moisture or nutrients and it was getting critical so with one last effort it sent forth its largest tap root to search and find, and yes it found not only water and nutrients but also a gardener who took pity upon it, pruned it, shaped it and spoke lovingly to it. the little plant blossomed and grew so beautiful it's rare flowers were a sight to behold.
The gardener lovingly placed the plant near an Oasis so at all times it could receive the water and feed that it needed.
Then Jesus with his heart exposed with across in the centre. He came to each person separately and placed this cross deep in to the heart of each person. As he pulled the cross back out it left a clear imprint of a cross in each persons heart feeding and nurturing watering and speaking to that heart lovingly. The heart of each person grew in beauty and stature as long as the heart listened and turned towards the heavenly gardener Jesus who is the Oasis of Life
"Come be infilled by Me your Saviour"

1 Corinthians 4
1 People should think of us as Christ's servants, stewards entrusted with the mysteries of God.
2 In such a matter, what is expected of stewards is that each one should be found trustworthy.
3 It is of no importance to me how you or any other human court may judge me: I will not even be the judge of my own self.
4 It is true that my conscience does not reproach me, but that is not enough to justify me: it is the Lord who is my judge.
5 For that reason, do not judge anything before the due time, until the Lord comes; he will bring to light everything that is hidden in darkness and reveal the designs of all hearts. Then everyone will receive from God the appropriate commendation.
6 I have applied all this to myself and Apollos for your sakes, so that you can learn how the saying, 'Nothing beyond what is written' is true of us: no individual among you must become filled with his own importance and make comparisons, to anothers detriment.
7 Who made you so important? What have you got that was not given to you? And if it was given to you, why are you boasting as though it were your own?
8 You already have everything -- you are rich already -- you have come into your kingdom, without any help from us! Well, I wish you were kings and we could be kings with you!
9 For it seems to me that God has put us apostles on show right at the end, like men condemned to death: we have been exhibited as a spectacle to the whole universe, both angelic and human.
10 Here we are, fools for Christ's sake, while you are the clever ones in Christ; we are weak, while you are strong; you are honoured, while we are disgraced.
11 To this day, we go short of food and drink and clothes, we are beaten up and we have no homes;
12 we earn our living by labouring with our own hands; when we are cursed, we answer with a blessing; when we are hounded, we endure it passively;
13 when we are insulted, we give a courteous answer. We are treated even now as the dregs of the world, the very lowest scum.
14 I am writing all this not to make you ashamed but simply to remind you, as my dear children;
15 for even though you might have ten thousand slaves to look after you in Christ, you still have no more than one father, and it was I who fathered you in Christ Jesus, by the gospel.
16 That is why I urge you to take me as your pattern
17 and why I have sent you Timothy, a dear and faithful son to me in the Lord, who will remind you of my principles of conduct in Christ, as I teach them everywhere in every church.
18 On the assumption that I was not coming to you, some of you have become filled with your own self-importance;
19 but I shall be coming to you soon, the Lord willing, and then I shall find out not what these self-important people say, but what power they have.
20 For the kingdom of God consists not in spoken words but in power.
21 What do you want then? Am I to come to you with a stick in my hand or in love, and with a spirit of gentleness? 

Everything we have comes from God all is a gift - the Cross, the Blood of Jesus, the Water of the Spirit, Salvation
