on the day of salvation I have helped you

Notes of meeting on 2 September 2014

A picture of the Holy Family ,baby Jesus, Mary and Joseph with the angels, saints, martyrs and the Apostles.  The light of the Holt Spirit surrounded them. They were all at peace.
We were praying for our loved ones and those dear to us and also for ourselves for graces.
The light became stronger and the baby Jesus disappeared in his place came the crucified Christ in the centre of us all.
Jesus said:
"Bring to Me in prayer all those who do not know Me, all those who are indifferent to Me, all those who actively work against Me and especially those who this night, if it were not for my suffering on this Cross and Our Mothers and your prayers, would be entering Hell.
Bring them in your hearts before My Cross, pray earnestly with your hearts and with my Blessed Mother.
Although I require you to do this I ask you as a brother with much love for you to help save your brothers and sisters for I am bereft I love them so. Help Me my little flock , my loyal sheep, help Me to save those who are lost by your sacrifice and prayer.
See how your Mother weeps with Me for them.
My love for them overwhelms My Weeping Heart.
Pray with our Mother. I love you.

2 Corinthians 6 v 2
 As he said, 'At the time of my favour I have answered you; on the day of salvation I have helped you'; well, now is the real time of favour, now the day of salvation is here.

I Peter 3 v 8 -
Finally: you should all agree among yourselves and be sympathetic; love the brothers, have compassion and be self-effacing.

1 John 2
1 My children, I am writing this to prevent you from sinning; but if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ, the upright.
2 He is the sacrifice to expiate our sins, and not only ours, but also those of the whole world.

Also read Hebrews 11

He alone is my rock, my safety, my stronghold,

Notes of Praise and Intercession Night 26 August 2014

Picture of a lovely huge walled garden which contained a vineyard, some arable land growing wheat, a large veg patch and a flower garden. People were working hard but joyfully. Jesus was working and advising them how to grow the plants, vines, vegetables and flowers to there full potential.
Then Jesus went outside through a door in the wall where a court was convening. A poor man was bound from shoulder to foot in strong black netting which was attached to the wrist of a very dark almost handsome man who strangely repellent to all at the court.
Jesus took his place and the man who held the captive (who was in so much terror he couldn't speak) began by saying "This man is mine, he hasn't one redeeming quality in your eyes. So why has this court been convened."
Jesus replied "To make sure he has no redeeming point in his life."
The dark man began to laugh saying "You cannot have him."
Then from the back of the court a woman passed a note to Jesus,who was looking intently at the captive, and she knelt down.
The note said 'Remember his Mothers prayers.'
Jesus studied the captive some more and the sorrow in Jesus' Heart made it bleed.
The woman passed a second note that said 'Remember when he loved and nursed his earthly Father just as you nursed and loved Joseph your earthly Father.
Jesus felt all his woulds open up and bleed.
By now Satan's face was scowling he knew he was losing the case. He looked at the woman with loathing.
Jesus said "Unbind and release him because of the one good deed he has done, I will question him."
Satan did with bad grace release him.
The woman sent another note 'Could he not work hard in the Kingdom, sowing your seeds of love in the hardest of ground, men's hearts. He knows that he does not want anyone else to face what he has."
Jesus folded up the note.
He said "My Son what do you say."
The captive replied "I will do anything to put it right."
"So be it" said Jesus "You will work hard with joy in your heart, you are released from Satan's servitude, come serve Me." Jesus embraced him.
The man kept saying over and over "Thank you, Praise you, Glory to you Jesus and thank your dear Mother for me." He was completely healed and full of love.

Romans 12  v 9 - 21
9 Let love be without any pretence. Avoid what is evil; stick to what is good.
10 In brotherly love let your feelings of deep affection for one another come to expression and regard others as more important than yourself.
11 In the service of the Lord, work not halfheartedly but with conscientiousness and an eager spirit.
12 Be joyful in hope, persevere in hardship; keep praying regularly;
13 share with any of God's holy people who are in need; look for opportunities to be hospitable.
14 Bless your persecutors; never curse them, bless them.
15 Rejoice with others when they rejoice, and be sad with those in sorrow.
16 Give the same consideration to all others alike. Pay no regard to social standing, but meet humble people on their own terms. Do not congratulate yourself on your own wisdom.
17 Never pay back evil with evil, but bear in mind the ideals that all regard with respect.
18 As much as possible, and to the utmost of your ability, be at peace with everyone.
19 Never try to get revenge: leave that, my dear friends, to the Retribution. As scripture says: Vengeance is mine -- I will pay them back, the Lord promises.
20 And more: If your enemy is hungry, give him something to eat; if thirsty, something to drink. By this, you will be heaping red-hot coals on his head.
21 Do not be mastered by evil, but master evil with good.

Proverbs 3 v 5
5 Trust wholeheartedly in Yahweh, put no faith in your own perception; 

Psalm 62 v 5-8
5 Rest in God alone, my soul! He is the source of my hope.
6 He alone is my rock, my safety, my stronghold, so that I stand unwavering.
7 In God is my safety and my glory, the rock of my strength. In God is my refuge;
8 trust in him, you people, at all times. Pour out your hearts to him, God is a refuge for us.
Matthew 16 v 13-20
 13 When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi he put this question to his disciples, 'Who do people say the Son of man is?'
14 And they said, 'Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.'
15 'But you,' he said, 'who do you say I am?'
16 Then Simon Peter spoke up and said, 'You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.'
17 Jesus replied, 'Simon son of Jonah, you are a blessed man! Because it was no human agency that revealed this to you but my Father in heaven.
18 So I now say to you: You are Peter and on this rock I will build my community. And the gates of the underworld can never overpower it.
19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of Heaven: whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven; whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.'
20 Then he gave the disciples strict orders not to say to anyone that he was the Christ.

 Mathew 4 v 4
 4 But he replied, 'Scripture says: Human beings live not on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'

at the service of others

Notes of meeting on 19 August 2014

Picture of Mary on her knees beseeching the Father for extra graces for this group, her child Theotokos. In all humbleness she asked the Father that through the sacrifice of her Son Jesus He would send the Holy Spirit with another anointing for all her children.
Then a great light appeared and hovered around her, in her hands was what looked like a rainbow of all colours. The light seemed to endow her many graces which she poured upon us. This gift of extra graces is for us to carry on with the important role of praying fr all souls especially those lost to Jesus.
The graces were :
Love, Faith, Wisdom,Humbleness of Heart, Discernment, Knowledge, prayer and Perseverance especially for our brothers and sisters in Christ but also for all peoples of any grace colour or creed.

Psalm 119 v 1-8
 1 How blessed are those whose way is blameless, who walk in the Law of Yahweh!
2 Blessed are those who observe his instructions, who seek him with all their hearts,
3 and, doing no evil, who walk in his ways.
4 You lay down your precepts to be carefully kept.
5 May my ways be steady in doing your will.
6 Then I shall not be shamed, if my gaze is fixed on your commandments.
7 I thank you with a sincere heart for teaching me your upright judgements.
8 I shall do your will; do not ever abandon me wholly.

1 Peter 4 v 7 - 11
7 The end of all things is near, so keep your minds calm and sober for prayer.
8 Above all preserve an intense love for each other, since love covers over many a sin.
9 Welcome each other into your houses without grumbling.
10 Each one of you has received a special grace, so, like good stewards responsible for all these varied graces of God, put it at the service of others.
11 If anyone is a speaker, let it be as the words of God, if anyone serves, let it be as in strength granted by God; so that in everything God may receive the glory, through Jesus Christ, since to him alone belong all glory and power for ever and ever. Amen.
