People are so busy with their lives they do not recognise their Redeemer

Notes of meeting on 24 May 2016

Picture of Jesus quietly walking by the sea. Everything was still as it was very early; the sun was just rising and the waves quietly lapping on the shore. As he walked many people came to the beach bringing things with them, parasols, food, beach balls, ready for fun. Our Lord kept on walking, the children looked up recognising him, but their parents called them to come eat or play.
Jesus was very lonely and hurt that nobody else recognised him or greeted him but he took comfort from the children.

Jesus says:
"My people look around. People are so busy with their lives they do not recognise their Redeemer, the lover of their souls, they are indifferent to my ways so much so they don't even feel or see me any more. Their hearts are enrapt of the things of this world, Satan has seduced them.
Pray for my poor people that the Holy Spirit will undo the damage inflicted upon their souls and that the Holy Spirit will convict them of my burning love so that once more, like little children, they will look for me and I will greet them as my true sons and daughter for I love them so. My heart pines for them with an unending thirst.
Pray my loyal ones for those whose eyes do not see for those whose ears do not hear and those whose hearts do not feel.
I bless you, Jesus"

Mathew 10- v 26 - 42
26 'So do not be afraid of them. Everything now covered up will be uncovered, and everything now hidden will be made clear.
27 What I say to you in the dark, tell in the daylight; what you hear in whispers, proclaim from the housetops.
28 'Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; fear him rather who can destroy both body and soul in hell.
29 Can you not buy two sparrows for a penny? And yet not one falls to the ground without your Father knowing.
30 Why, every hair on your head has been counted.
31 So there is no need to be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
32 'So if anyone declares himself for me in the presence of human beings, I will declare myself for him in the presence of my Father in heaven.
33 But the one who disowns me in the presence of human beings, I will disown in the presence of my Father in heaven.
34 'Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth: it is not peace I have come to bring, but a sword.
35 For I have come to set son against father, daughter against mother, daughter-in-law against mother-in-law;
36 a person's enemies will be the members of his own household.
37 'No one who prefers father or mother to me is worthy of me. No one who prefers son or daughter to me is worthy of me.
38 Anyone who does not take his cross and follow in my footsteps is not worthy of me.
39 Anyone who finds his life will lose it; anyone who loses his life for my sake will find it.
40 'Anyone who welcomes you welcomes me; and anyone who welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me.
41 'Anyone who welcomes a prophet because he is a prophet will have a prophet's reward; and anyone who welcomes an upright person because he is upright will have the reward of an upright person.
42 'If anyone gives so much as a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is a disciple, then in truth I tell you, he will most certainly not go without his reward.'

I have heard your cry. Your cry for mercy. Your cry for strength. I have heard your cry.

I shall pour out my Spirit

Notes of meeting on 17 May 2016

Picture of a great flame descending upon us all, the flame separated and entered into each persons heart and spiritual being, healing and cleansing. The flame then came together again and in front of us burning brightly, within was what looked like a bush but was in fact a vine, the fire consumed it but didn't harm its green verdant leaves. Then the flame disappeared heaven bound.
The vine was lush and laden with juicy fat grapes ready for harvest.

Jesus says:
"My people I send My Spirit to each one of you not only to cleanse and heal but to fortify your strength. This flame will grow within you and will be seen by all in a tangible way drawing them to you and to Me.
Be not timid but reach out for you have the gifts within you, My Holy Spirit will teach you how to call men in My Name and to share all that He has given you.
I long for so many souls, My Heart burns with love for them. My people be bold, pray to Our Mother and the Holy Spirit for Mercy rich in salvation for your brothers and sisters.
Do not be afraid I am with you.
Your Jesus."

Acts 2 v 16 -21
16 On the contrary, this is what the prophet was saying:
17 In the last days -- the Lord declares -- I shall pour out my Spirit on all humanity. Your sons and daughters shall prophesy, your young people shall see visions, your old people dream dreams.
18 Even on the slaves, men and women, shall I pour out my Spirit.
19 I will show portents in the sky above and signs on the earth below.
20 The sun will be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the day of the Lord comes, that great and terrible Day.
21 And all who call on the name of the Lord will be saved.

Galatians 5
1 Christ set us free, so that we should remain free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be fastened again to the yoke of slavery.
2 I, Paul, give you my word that if you accept circumcision, Christ will be of no benefit to you at all.
3 I give my assurance once again to every man who accepts circumcision that he is under obligation to keep the whole Law;
4 once you seek to be reckoned as upright through the Law, then you have separated yourself from Christ, you have fallen away from grace.
5 We are led by the Spirit to wait in the confident hope of saving justice through faith,
6 since in Christ Jesus it is not being circumcised or being uncircumcised that can effect anything -- only faith working through love.
7 You began your race well; who came to obstruct you and stop you obeying the truth?
8 It was certainly not any prompting from him who called you!
9 A pinch of yeast ferments the whole batch.
10 But I feel sure that, united in the Lord, you will not be led astray, and that anyone who makes trouble with you will be condemned, no matter who he is.
11 And I, brothers -- if I were still preaching circumcision, why should I still be persecuted? For then the obstacle which is the cross would have no point any more.
12 I could wish that those who are unsettling you would go further and mutilate themselves. 
13 After all, brothers, you were called to be free; do not use your freedom as an opening for self-indulgence, but be servants to one another in love,
14 since the whole of the Law is summarised in the one commandment: You must love your neighbour as yourself.
15 If you go snapping at one another and tearing one another to pieces, take care: you will be eaten up by one another.
16 Instead, I tell you, be guided by the Spirit, and you will no longer yield to self-indulgence.
17 The desires of self-indulgence are always in opposition to the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are in opposition to self-indulgence: they are opposites, one against the other; that is how you are prevented from doing the things that you want to.
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.

Avoid what is evil; stick to what is good

Notes of meeting on 10 May 2016

Psalm 95
1 Come, let us cry out with joy to Yahweh, acclaim the rock of our salvation.
2 Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving, acclaim him with music.
3 For Yahweh is a great God, a king greater than all the gods.
4 In his power are the depths of the earth, the peaks of the mountains are his;
5 the sea belongs to him, for he made it, and the dry land, moulded by his hands.
6 Come, let us bow low and do reverence; kneel before Yahweh who made us!
7 For he is our God, and we the people of his sheepfold, the flock of his hand. If only you would listen to him today!
8 Do not harden your hearts as at Meribah, as at the time of Massah in the desert,
9 when your ancestors challenged me, put me to the test, and saw what I could do!
10 For forty years that generation sickened me, and I said, 'Always fickle hearts; they cannot grasp my ways.'
11 Then in my anger I swore they would never enter my place of rest.

Matthew 5 v 17 - 20
17 'Do not imagine that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets. I have come not to abolish but to complete them.
18 In truth I tell you, till heaven and earth disappear, not one dot, not one little stroke, is to disappear from the Law until all its purpose is achieved.
19 Therefore, anyone who infringes even one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be considered the least in the kingdom of Heaven; but the person who keeps them and teaches them will be considered great in the kingdom of Heaven.
20 'For I tell you, if your uprightness does not surpass that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never get into the kingdom of Heaven.

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 half-heartedly 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.

I breathe out My Spirit

Notes from Night Praise and Intercession for 'The Gift' in Hexham & Newcastle Diocese 5 May 2016

Picture of a large beautifully lit cloud above us, from within reaching down was a large hand, rays of light emitted from the hand and met the Earth.
Everyone of us felt these rays of light go through our hearts, minds and bodies and each person felt enlivened and able to pray and praise in union with and to the Holy Spirit.
Even people who did not believe or pray could feel deep within their being something happening; an opening of heart and mind.
The blessing caused light to go into places of darkness which cleansed and healed; it caused restitution.
Jesus says:
"Before you were born you were the Beloved of My Heart, your names are engraved on My Heart, you are precious in my sight, each of you was planted in the exact place for a purpose.
When you praise, worship, pray, sacrifice, love and honour Me and keep My Father's commandments you each reflect back to Me the Great Light of Heaven. This both pleases Me and consoles Me, for it is you who bring light upon the Earth in these dark times.
In spite of the darkness you reflect all that is good upon and in the Earth and this brings us much joy.
Receive the gift of My Holy Spirit with your hearts and you will burn with the everlasting fire of My Love. This will attract others who may only have a spark of light within them to turn to Me and they too shall become ablaze with the love and like beacons they will light the way to still more of My people.
Be open My people, the Great Gift of the Holy Spirit will lead you and teach you to become lights in darkness.
Like fishers of men in the deep, you will bring many to the Kingdom.
I bless you all, your Jesus."

Picture of white horses with angel riders moving through the North East.

I breathe My Spirit on you.
A Spirit of Power, a Spirit of Joy, a Spirit overflowing.
I breathe out My Spirit, I breathe out My Spirit, I breathe out My Spirit.

Mary Bride of the Spirit pray for us.

May Prayer Intention (2016)

May Prayer Intention 2016

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of thy faithful and enkindle in them the fire of thy love.
Send forth thy Spirit and they shall be created.
And thou shall renew the face of the earth.
O God who hast taught the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit, grant that by the gift of the same Spirit we may be always truly wise, and ever rejoice in his consolation, through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Mary, Bride of the Spirit, pray for us.

you have received pity

Notes from meeting on 26 April 2016

Picture of Our Lord with His Most Sacred Heart exposed. A spurt of blood poured forth like a fountain. The Holy Spirit caused a breeze to blow the blood over our sorrowful world.
The blood streamed and broke into minute droplets cascading over many countries, some parts of the world needed more than others. The West seemed to need more of Jesus' merciful blood than anywhere else. The need was severe.
His Heart poured forth the stream of life blood and then His Heart produced cleansing water which gushed down upon the people.
With this outpouring Satan seemed to loose his grip on the people in most need and they began to shout 'Jesus help me' 'Son of God have mercy' 'Pity me'. It was as though the scales had been lifted from their eyes, hearts and minds. They felt free and could think and feel and see more clearly in some cases for the first time in years, wholesome thoughts, loving thoughts, heartfelt prayers.
The world looked more verdant and green, the seas looked deep azure and were clear. Satan was loosing his grip, peace was coming.
Mary says:
"My children, your Mother begs you to pray more earnestly for the World and all her peoples.
Satan is trying to dull the minds and hearts of everyone to the words of my Son Jesus, to counteract and overcome these wiles of Satan pray for yourselves and those in most need, especially those who would be lost, to receive the Mercy of God and the Holy Spirit to work in their lives and hearts.
Together with sacrifice and much prayer Peace will reign and my Immaculate Heart will triumph over Satan. My little ones pray through my  Immaculate Heart and the Sacred Heart of my Son Jesus for nothing is impossible in the Father's plans when prayed in this way.
I bless you in Jesus' name. Mary."

1 Peter v 1-10
1 Rid yourselves, then, of all spite, deceit, hypocrisy, envy and carping criticism.
2 Like new-born babies all your longing should be for milk -- the unadulterated spiritual milk -- which will help you to grow up to salvation,
3 at any rate if you have tasted that the Lord is good .
4 He is the living stone, rejected by human beings but chosen by God and precious to him; set yourselves close to him
5 so that you, too, may be living stones making a spiritual house as a holy priesthood to offer the spiritual sacrifices made acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
6 As scripture says: Now I am laying a stone in Zion, a chosen, precious cornerstone and no one who relies on this will be brought to disgrace.
7 To you believers it brings honour. But for unbelievers, it is rather a stone which the builders rejected that became a cornerstone,
8 a stumbling stone, a rock to trip people up. They stumble over it because they do not believe in the Word; it was the fate in store for them.
9 But you are a chosen race, a kingdom of priests, a holy nation, a people to be a personal possession to sing the praises of God who called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.
10 Once you were a non-people and now you are the People of God; once you were outside his pity; now you have received pity.

Where two or three are gathered there I am in the midst.
Thank you Jesus that you are with us as we meet together just as you were when the apostle and disciples met together.
