Meaning of Repent

I looked up ‘The Compact Macquarie Dictionary.  I thought it is worthwhile because it cleared my head about what exactly is repenting. We all know it is to be sorry for our sins and try our hardest not to do it again. And pray over it so that we eventually overcome our weakness through grace. But I just had to look up the dictionary, to see if this makes some of you more at ease as it did me.

is(7)Meaning of repent: to feel self-reproach, compunction, or contrition for past conduct, change one’s mind regarding past actions in consequence of dissatisfaction with it or with its results, be penanced in regard with self-reproach or contrition. To feel sorry for; regret.

I did some meditating on it, because Satan has been trying his hardest to make out (like he always does) that I won’t be ready when Jesus comes for me. I know many are in the same boat. I was thinking some of us would all like to know where we stand with God. I realised I tend to say short repeated prayers a lot, but don’t say as many praises to God, in my own words. I thank Him a great deal in my own words. So I am writing this article for those who have the same problem. I keep telling us in my articles ‘don’t listen to Satan’s lies’ because he does it to me all the time. He wants us to give up the good fight as we all know, so don’t give in eventually you will get it right, if you pray all the time about it.

I didn’t come from a family that gave away compliments that often, and it seems I don’t give much praise to God either, in my own words. At least not enough. Yesterday I did.  Using my own words and I did feel a rush of energy every time I did it. The doubts have gone away and now I know the weapon I will use. Deep down I always knew and I have even wrote about it. The weapon is to get intimate with God through praising Him as much as possible. I realise this more than ever now, how much He just wants a normal relationship with us. He is hungry for us to give Him gratitude and praise. In other words lots of love. He is very affection when He appears to me. And I have always praised Him, but not enough in my own words. I think the closer you get to God, the more Satan attacks you, and especially now, as it is getter ever so close, when Jesus will take His faithful Brides with Him to the wedding feast in heaven.

Trust God is so important, but we humans are not naturally trustworthy ourselves, and so we have difficulties trusting God when we need to the most. I have found you need to trust Him especially when you don’t feel Him close. Because that is when all the temptations of doubts come. When you look back or look around how much God comes through, when you are humbly and earnestly ask Him for His help; always helps to get out of that negative state. When I am busy praising God, no negative thoughts can come through. So it is the perfect weapon, because there is a great deal of joy that comes from praising God.


Jesus is the Light of the World

John 8:12 the One New Man Bible Translation, in this translation Y’shua is the Hebrew name of Jesus.

So Y’shua spoke to them again saying, “I am the Light of the world: the one who follows Me could not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

When I was a very young adolescent, I wanted so badly to understand what everybody was talking about when they would refer to Jesus as the Light. So I would beg God for an answer. We may think God has funny ways of teaching us, but He doesn’t miss His target for those who are really seeking. I was in church one day and I was listening to a sermon. I can’t recall what the sermon was about, but ‘light dawned’ I understood the message and by doing that God revealed how Jesus is the Light. Jesus being the Light of the world, can be explained many different ways and it all be true. The Bible is so deep we can read a verse, and get something new out of it many times over. If we are very one with His Spirit. Because His Holy Spirit give us light also, on what the Living Word is all about.

Jesus is the Light

isWNUVGOVLYou can see in the light, but not in darkness. The light shows up everything, nothing can be hidden in the light, but in darkness everything is hidden. In the light you can see your way, but in darkness you stumble and fall. Jesus is the Living Word and so the Word lights up the way. Jesus is the way, His light which is of Himself. He lights up the way and is the only way to life and the means to enter the kingdom of God.

The Word is Living

The Word of God is living, many people can personally testified to that. At different times the Word of the Holy Bible has come literally, visibly alive. In my case one day I was writing a book in my early years that I never got to finished it. I was looking through the Bible, trying to find a verse that I needed for my book, and different verses literally said ‘take me’ with such urgency. The Word is alive and so we should treat His Words with such reverence.

We must ask for revelation, even if it takes a while to receive it. Really only God can make things clear for you. The Holy Spirit will give you clarity. You will be probably be very surprise and delighted how He does it.

Jesus is the Vine, we are the Branches

We are constantly growing in the Lord. Learning more and more about Him and what our real relationship with Him should be like and what it should not be like. God has open my eyes more deeply about John Gospel.

John 15: 1-2. This interpretations is from the One New Man Bible.

I am the true vine and My Father is the farmer. He removes every branch in me if it does not bear fruit. And He prunes every branch that bears fruit so that it would bear much more fruit.

More we Die to Self The More Christ Lives in Us

I couldn’t really understand about Jesus being the vine and we being the branches clearly, once. I use to think how can I let God work through me and stop trying to use my own strength. Well I think St. Paul says you have to work as if there is no God at first. I believe what he meant was, as times goes on you become more and more one with Him. Through bowing down to God and constantly calling on Him to work through you. The more you practise your love for Him, through all your devotions and prepare to die to self-love, (selfish love of self) you will start to experience a new you. Dying to self is very hard and that is the pruning part. Pruning really is a painful experience as we all know, but if you persevere until the work God is doing on you, you will become more and more one with God. People will start to feel a presence around you. For example they may say ‘there is something different about you’ and you might say ‘what do you mean?’ And they might reply ‘I don’t know you don’t seem stress’.  Sometimes you might feel a real nice you and you start to connect what is going on, only because you prayed for understanding of this verse and asked Him to reveal Himself in you.

The Holy Trinity

The Holy Trinity is a very tricky thing to explain and understand. God is three person and yet one God. You can’t be filled with the Holy Spirit and Jesus not be present there, or even the Father for that matter. So when we are one with the vine (Jesus) His life flows through us. And we start to take on His nature. More and more as time passes. Some people become saints overnight, because they really give their all overnight. Some grow slowly. I feel we are in an era of acceleration. Where we are going through the paces a lot quicker than other generations. Because Jesus is getting His church ready for action. First I believe we will be persecuted so badly. I believe martyrs (pruning) God releases much fruit (grace), because of their labours. Once the faithful are raptured, that is when we are going to see the greatest conversion to Christ I believe. I know there is many conversion are beginning to happen now, but I really think things are going to really get a move on after the faithful Church (Bride) is removed. People will have to think twice about the teachings of Christ then.

Getting back to what I was saying, the more you grow spiritual the less interested you become with the worldly things. God becomes your whole reason for living, He becomes your life. If that is you? Have you noticed sometimes you might become aware of a real nice you, that you know it isn’t you? That might sound complicating or even untrue to some. If you ask God to reveal Himself in you, over a period of time He will. Or somebody else will notice the Jesus/ Holy Spirit in you or around you. I remember the first time I asked Jesus to reveal Himself in me. When I was young I use to say ‘I see’ a lot. One morning I read something in the Bible that the Holy Spirit gave me clarity and instead of saying ‘I see’ I said ‘I understand.’  Then I felt Jesus in me smiling and said ‘I see’. That happen because I prayed about it. So if you think I am saying something that sounds far fetch to you, please pray on it. Ask???? Always ask, because we miss out on a lot of things, because we don’t ask for revelations. And it is also very hard to explain spiritual things, so I am probably not doing a good job.  This is my best however. Just hope that Jesus/Holy Spirit will reveal this to you so that you know what I am trying to explain.

The Perfection of a Soul

isZJPOFTZOThere are different levels of perfection and holiness. Like stars, some are brighter and bigger than others. Same with Jesus disciples. The more you are willing to deny yourself and suffer for love of God, the more Jesus will shine in you. God’s Spirit will fill us up with Himself accordingly to how much we have suffered through our trials for Him. He has shown me this was so, many years ago. So it is a real truth. It is not poetry, but living truth. Souls are also often referred to as gardens. The holier you become more beautiful is your garden.

John 15: 4-5

You must now dwell in Me and I in you. Just as the branch is not able to bear fruit by itself unless it would remain in the vine, so you could not bear fruit unless you would dwell continuously in Me. I am the vine, you are the branches. The one who dwells in Me and I in him, this one bears much fruit, because apart from Me you are not able to do anything.

Holy saints notice they do have a divine presence in them, and they do serve God with more tenderness than most people, and they are sweet and meek and humble of heart. They are very Christ like, because Christ truly does live in them. And we will see their full glory in Christ in heaven. And that is going to be some sight.


Novena of the Holy Souls in Purgatory

This novena I said once many years ago. I had a boss once that was giving me a very difficult time and I wanted her conversion not for her sake or even Jesus sake, but for my own. And I said to God I can’t pray for her out of love, but I have nothing against her relatives in purgatory. I offered up a week and I prayed real hard for her relatives in purgatory. She was converted not that long after I said the novena. I waited for a year to see if she would back slide, but she didn’t and she attended daily Mass top everything else off. So I recommend this novena very much.

Holy souls in purgatory, who are the certain heirs of heaven, souls most dear to Jesus and to Mary, obtain for me through your intercession the grace to lead a holy life, to die a happy death and to attain to the blessedness of eternity in heaven.

Holy souls in purgatory, I offer to God on your behalf the merit of all my works and sufferings of this day (week, month, or whatever period of time one wishes to designate).

I ask that once you have been admitted to the beatific vision of God where all pain ceases that you will remember me and grant me the request that I ask of you in this present moment.

I ask that once you have been admitted to the beatific vision of God where all pain ceases that you will remember me and grant me the request that I ask of you in this present moment.

Have Faith

God’s Justice is scary, because of our great many sins. If we don’t watch it, we can forget that the payment of our sins, Jesus has already paid it in full. Jesus experience the justice that we should of. And it would be infinite, because we have sinned against an infinite God. Jesus sacrifice to free us, is unspeakable. And like children, they never appreciate what sacrifices their parents have made for them. Until they grow up and become parents themselves. When we grow up spiritually we have to be prepared to share the load of our fellow man’s sorrows.

isPMK3SZJMJesus first saved you and then you became a Bride of Christ. If you don’t have faith first that Jesus saved you because He is so deeply in love with you, you won’t be able to believe He loves you enough for you to be a Bride of Christ. This also applies to men. The marriage with the Son of Man who is also the Son of God, is spiritual. Marriages on earth are supposed to reflect this mystical marriage with Christ. But many marriages as we know do not. Jesus saved us not because any of us deserves it, but always because God just loves us beyond our little minds can comprehend. It is easy to be saved all, you have to do is to want to be saved and put your trust in Jesus that He has saved you. And you also need a repented heart. And realise He did it because He wanted to save you. He saved us out of love not duty, but even Deep Oceans of love is a poor example. The universe is not bigger enough to fill His love for you alone. My sister was told that by God. God is massive and His love is just as big as He is. The enemy is trying his hardest to wear out God’s children at the moment by keeping them in fear that maybe they are not deserving enough for salvation. Nobody is deserving enough. Just admit you are a very bad sinner and have no real idea why God loves us so much. He just does. Love Him all the more for it.

Jeremiah 33:11

Give thanks to the Lord of hosts, for the Lord is good, for His steadfast love endures forever!

Psalm 96: 1-2

Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth. Sing to the Lord, praise His name; proclaim His salvation day after day.

Baptism of the Holy Spirit

I just heard a wonderful message from the Lord through Terri Taplin You Tube channel I think message 289. Most people have been told you can only be baptised by the Holy Spirit if you speak in tongues etc. Jesus is saying not to listen to man’s religion.  Jesus says when you become a born again Christian and you ask Jesus to enter into your heart, He does. You are not a sinner in the same way as those who are not born again. If you have a repented heart and trust Him, you are forgiven. When we receive the water baptism we are baptised of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Matthew 28:20

Baptise them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

So it very Biblical. We have our Bibles for now, to study what Jesus is saying, but in the near future it will become illegal to have one that is what the prophets are saying. We can confuse one another and sometimes it is deliberate and at other times it is the blind leading the blind, and we all been there at certain times in our lives. We receive the Holy Spirit not because we deserve it. Look at St. Peter, he denied Jesus three times and received the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. If you are in love with Him and have a repented heart and been water baptised and give yourself up to the Holy Trinity, you are all his.

Over a period of time you will start to sense Him in you, and other people will too from time to time. Not always. I feel God works best when you don’t know He is in you, working through you. Once you recognise Him, I think we tend to spoil things because of our pride. I thought this news would bring a great deal of joy to many people who are confused about the baptism of the Holy Spirit.


Prayer to Our Lord Jesus Crucified

isW102ZQ1LHeavenly Father; in the holy name of your Son Jesus, crucified for my sins, and in the love of the Holy Spirit, I come very humbly before you, with sorrow for my sins. Through the intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer you the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross, which I live as I receive Him in the Holy Eucharist. Lord Jesus crucified; I humbly speak to you, in the Presence of Mary our Blessed Mother. I acknowledge that you suffered so much for me and for all, and that we are indebted to you forever.

Lord; I appreciate very much your sufferings for me and for the rest of humanity. I thank you for saving me through your crushing pain, through your many wounds, through your tiredness and agony and through your Precious Blood shed with so much pain and love for us; through your difficulty to breath, through your sweat and tears, through your merciful patience, through every effort that you made and through your total offering for my sins and for the sins of the whole world.

Lord I complain sometimes when I have a little misfortune, a wound or when I am sick or tired; rejected, despised or prosecuted. But you were covered through your entire body with painful wounds; you were pieced with pain by the crown of thorns, you were stripped of your flesh by the scourging, you were insulted with terrible blasphemies, you were spat upon, you were humiliated, you were inflicted new wounds upon your wounded shoulder by the crushing weight of the cross, you were inflicted more wounds upon your wounds by the brutal stripping of your garments, you were pierced painfully by the nails on the cross, you were hanged upon the cross to bleed painfully to death, you suffered asphyxiation as you found it very painful to breathe, a yet your physical agony was only part of your suffering compared to your spiritual agony because you are God, and your holy soul was sorrowful unto death as you surrendered your life in exchange for our eternal life.

You saw the ingratitude of men for your great sacrifice, and you suffered for the pride of our sins, for the aggressiveness of those whom you created with so much love, for the hatred of men who always receive all your love, if only they come to you.

My Lord Jesus crucified, I come humbly before you, everlasting fountain of healing and life, Powerful source of our Resurrection, food for our souls in the Holy Eucharist, eternal refuge of Divine Light, gate to the Majesty and Glory of the Father and our only hope and salvation.

Divine Merciful Lord, I pray and beseech on behalf of all humanity for your Mercy and compassion, for your healing and blessings and for your Salvation.

Oh Precious treasure from Heaven, you who are hidden to the proud, fill my heart with humility and purity that I may be worthy to receive the promises of everlasting life in your Glory with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Amen.


This prayer was composed by Joseph of Jesus and Mary.


Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart

isO Sacred Heart of Jesus, to Thee I consecrate and offer up my person and my life, my actions, trials, and sufferings, that my entire being may henceforth only be employed in loving, honouring and glorifying Thee. This is my irrevocable will, to belong entirely to Thee, and to do all for Thy love, renouncing with my whole heart all that can displease Thee. I take thee, O Sacred Heart for my sole object of my love, the protection of my life, the pledge of my salvation, the remedy of my frailty and inconstancy, the reparation for all the defects of my life, and my secure refuge at the hour of my death. Be Thou, O Most Merciful Heart, my justification before God Thy Father, and screen me from His anger which I have so justly merited. I fear all from my own weakness and malice, but placing my entire confidence in Thee, O Heart of Love, I hope all from Thine infinite Goodness. Annihilate in me all that can displease or resist Thee. Imprint Thy pure love so deeply in my heart that I may never forget Thee or be separated from Thee. I beseech Thee, through Thine infinite Goodness, grant that my name be engraved upon Thy Heart, for in this I place all my happiness and all my glory, to live and to die as one of Thy devoted servants. Amen

Praise Him and Bless His Name

is(16)When we praise God out of pure love, not thinking of what we will get out of it, is when God gives His graces to us the most. If you praise Him just to get something, isn’t that similar to us when we do something for somebody just to get something back in return? It becomes a business deal, not an act of love and appreciation. God wants our love. If you new at this, just listen to beautiful worship songs that touch your heart, or something else that does this to you. Don’t worry about your concerns, just hand them over to Him in faith that He will deal with it. Then sing along with your favourite worship music and allow yourself to be lost in praising God. That is one of the ways to God’s heart. The same with us. When somebody pleases us just to please us, softens our hearts and we respond with appreciation. Presuming you are a nice person, which I think you must be to read this article. We are made in God’s image, that is the nice side of our natures, but the evil side is in the image of the evil one. You will end up looking like your Father. Hopeful it is God who is Your Father, because that is what we originally were created in. Look at babies aren’t they sweet, and wonderfully beautiful. As they grow up it maybe a different story, depending on who they serve.

If You are Worried about the Rapture

If you are worried if you are ready or worthy enough to be taken up at the rapture or not. My advice is hand the problem to Jesus, knowing He wants you more than you do to be ready. So if you hand the problem to Him in faith and then praise Him just for the sake of praising Him. It will get your mind of the lies Satan is telling you and you will be in a better position to listen to the Love Jesus is telling you. You must realize it is not about you at all. It is all about His Love, compassion and mercy. He saved you, and paid the price you couldn’t pay on the cross for you. It doesn’t depend how long you have followed Him either. You can be saved at the last moment if you hand yourself completely over to Him. Forget your past sins and hand them over to Jesus. He will take care of things. He will wash you clean of all your sins with His blood if you just believe and receive His love for you. You must be sold out to Him. If you are all His, He will gladly take you. Praising is where you beginning to have a relationship with Him. Praising Him keeps your mind of all the negative thinking that you are not worth it. Instead you look at His great eternal Love for you. That is very important. It is all about His greatness. What better way of showing it by being merciful to somebody who doesn’t deserve it, such us weaklings.

A Dream

I had a dream many years ago that came from God. If you are not sure it came from God, you must ask Him. You need to discern everything somebody tells you. In my dream on the left side was frightening because I saw a regular mean army of tanks, missiles etc… And it was going to attack God’s children with so much aggression. I was getting worried, but when I looked at the right side God’s children were all jumping up and down praising God. That is how we are going to win the war that is coming up. Sure there will be other things beside this, but the main victory for us is going to be our relationship with God. And that is going to be a loving freeing relationship. So no wonder there is so much joy in God’s kingdom especially during the 1,000 years of peace. Love is wonderful not so with hate and domination. It now reminds me of a vision my mother had of aggression against God. The aggression was like a solid rod, it couldn’t win because God is love, love was like the air, and the rod couldn’t attack it because it needed something hard as well to do any harm.

Praising with joy in our hearts. When we do this, do you think we are going to be out doing God’s love for us? He will give you your heart’s desire, providing it is not going to be harmful, or He wants to give you something better. Maybe straight away or a few years later when you are spiritually mature enough to receive it.

isZJPOFTZOWe know there is a war coming. In the Bible the Great Tribulation the war is going to last seven years. And half of this the Anti-Christ is going to have full control of the world. The thing is when he is the most proudest that is when Jesus will come to reclaim His kingdom. The Anti-Christ and all those who serve him will be thrown into hell. We will have one thousand years of peace with Jesus on earth reigning. I mention this because a prophetess was told by Jesus that He has shorten the Anti-Christ reign because sacrifices were made. He didn’t say by how much. So this message has given me so much joy in thinking it could be shorten even more. I once said to Jesus ‘wouldn’t it be good if it was shortened by fifteen months and Jesus appeared so happy as if it was possible, if we were willing to make the necessary sacrifice and prayers. I do trust this women, she goes by the name Maria Divine Mercy. If you check out her sight I am sure most of you will trust her too.

Psalm 44: 6-8

I put no trust in my bow, my sword does not bring me victory; but You give us victory over our enemies, You put our adversaries to shame. In God we make our boast all day long, and we will praise Your name forever.

Praising God is even more important than intercession prayers. Praising God builds a living relationship with you and God over a period of time. And when you really love Him, you will know His Will for you, you will know what to pray about as well.


A Vision of a Burnt Out City

During my quiet times I received a very disturbing vision. I saw I believe a great big city that a fire went through it. I am not sure if it was the efforts of a nuclear or a comet or what? It was flattened and had only one sky scrapper standing. The whole city was like charcoal. Very lifeless looking and all grey. There was no colour except in one spot. The thing that really impressed me the most was, there was a very faint light in one spot. It was faint and weak looking. It seemed to be a person or a family that had survived.  The person seemed to be turning to Mary the Mother of Jesus for help. I saw a picture of a woman that had the clothes of that era that Mary was alive in, and she looked liked a religious picture of Mary also. So that is why I thought the person may have been praying the rosary for example. I also saw what looked liked a solid stone circular shaped that had a round hole in it and it was like in the air. The power that came from that hole was all powerful and merciful, flowing from it. It was pouring out from the hole I believe to the person praying. Jesus sacrifice still made Mercy possible even in the times of God’s great Justice. I believe also Mary is a very important intercessor during those times, because peoples faith might be too weak to believe God will hear their prayer.I felt God was showing me that even though the persons’ faith was weak it was also powerful, because God is powerful.

isWNUVGOVLWhen we say the rosary, we are actually meditating on scripture and asking Mary to pray on our behalf. Saying the rosary has 15 promises attached to those who say it. The promises were not made up by somebody, but came from God through Mary to two saints to spread the devotion all over the world. The saints were St. Dominic and Blessed Alain. At Fatima (1917) Our Lady said: “I am the Lady of the Rosary. Pray the rosary every day to obtain peace for the world.” So that is why I think the person was saying the rosary. The person’s faith was weak, but because God is a very generous and even during His wrath the prayer was strong. You only need a faith of a mustard seed to move mountains according to what Jesus teachings.

So I think this vision is to encourage people to realise doesn’t matter how weak your faith is, it is still important to God and God will act on it. I also believe this vision is also backing up the importance of the communion of saints. Alone we can’t make it, but with the help of all the angels and saints in heaven, we have a strong army of people helping us, who are in a very good position to intercede for us. They made it and really have faith in God’s mercy, because they see it in all its glory, even in times of what looks hopeless to us. It is never hopeless to God. But there is a prophesy in Revelation in the back of the Bible that the Anti-Christ will rule the earth for three and half years. During that time the martyrs are going to be cruelly tortured like never known in history. So they are in need of prayers now. I pray for them even now, because I know God will answer them. The more we pray the more we will help them. To me prayer is a bit like saving your money. The more you can save the more expensive an item you can buy. Just look at houses for example, the more expensive it is the grander it should be. Our prayers to me are like that, the more we prayer the more help will come their way if we pray in faith and humility and love.
