We Are the Brides of Christ

I remember my mother telling me when I was young that my mother said a few years after her marriage she would look back on her wedding day and thought to herself that she was glad that she thought she loved my father, otherwise she would not of married him, but now she really does love him. And then a few more years past and she would make the same mistake. After fifteen of marriage, it finally dawned on her that she had always loved him, but the love was always increasing so much so that the previous year didn’t look like love to her. That is how our marriage with Christ is like. Our love keeps growing and our hearts desire to please Him grows so much stronger, that the previous years we consider ourselves extremely selfish in our service to Him. We are always selfish, but if we are trying not to be, that pleases God tremendously, more than it does us. While we are growing more and more in love with our God, we become more critical of our services to Him, because we become more and more aware how much more God deserves to be loved by us.

Romans 8:35-39. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?  As it is written: For your sake we face death all day long: we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered. No, in all these things we are more than conquerors that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Now we may have heard this a million of times and no longer be able to appreciate what St. Paul is saying here. But when you are going through a hard time it starts to have a much deeper meaning than during more peaceful times. Being married to Christ in this world is like a roller-coaster. You are up or down all through your life. Not so if we were living in a world that truly worship’s God our Creator, because His Will is for us to love one another unconditionally. There are plenty people who think they are serving God, but as Jesus said they never knew God, if they did know God they would not be persecuting Him. God is a God of Love not hate.

When you believe you can’t take it anymore but cry out to God anyway, He comes in such a way that you are strengthen and so keep going further. I don’t know how many times I have said there is no way I am going to write another article and then I find God gives me an article to write that I just have to do and when it is done it is usually one of my better articles. I don’t know why God wants me to write, because I feel like I am not doing such a good job, but for some reason it seems God wants me to do it. So I am sure you are finding it out for yourself, you decide I am not doing such a great job serving God in this area, so I won’t do it anymore and then God gives you courage to continue. We are called to work for Him in season and out of season. That verse in the bible is making more sense to me than ever before.

I have been told once by my mother, in marriage you go through the dry season, when you and your spouse basically gets into a rut and you know word by word what your spouse is going to say and do. In other words it is a very boring period of time in your marriage and then all of a sudden it is like a second honey moon breaks out and it is far better than the first honey moon and the whole marriage is like that. You have to go through a dry season first and then a better honey moon period than the previous honey moon, will follow. Well it is like that when you are married to Christ. When it is dry season, you got to hang in there regardless of its cost and after you persevered through those hard times, the honey moon arrives and it is so exciting, far better than the previous honey moons you have ever had with Him.

God Gives Grace to the Humble

Matthew 23:12 “Whoever makes himself great will be made humble. Whoever makes himself humble will be made great.”

It is very rare when we see somebody who is so humble that all their ways are holy through and through. Most of us are still learning. It has taken me a life time to realise that while I am being humble God gives me beautiful gifts and then I start to think I am somebody and then straight away God gives me some trouble to endure to humble me back down again. I have finally learnt what I am supposed to do. I am to remind myself all the time that I am a great sinner and because of God’s great love for me and the whole of the human race He forgives our sins through the blood of Jesus. Now I knew this in up to a point, but God has to teach it so strongly that it becomes more than theory and becomes a way of life.

I believe Jesus is on His way and is getting everything prepared for His coming. Remember He would want to hold off as long as He can to save as many souls as possible. The thing I am noticing and I wouldn’t mind betting you are experiencing something similar, is that God seems to be giving me a crash course on what He expects of me. God’s teachings have always been very important to me, but there is defiantly a feeling of urgency.


Sometimes I don’t know if it is me I am listening to or it is God’s Spirit directing me. Jesus explains in the Gospel during the last days it is like we are going to go through birth pains. And the pains increase in intensity as the time gets closer to when He comes. I have never had given birth to a child before, but I hear often when a women is near her time, she often finds herself getting busy like doing the housework. Like a bird has a need to get the nest ready in time. I believe that is what God is doing to me. I have heard about the three days and night of darkness, when hell will be let loose basically. We are told to stay indoors and cover our windows with blankets so we won’t see outside, because it is going to really frighten us. I know it sounds strange to cover windows if it is going to be dark, but there must be a reason for it, for them to tell us to do it. We must be able to see something even though the sky is going to be blacker then black. The Rapture is apparently going to happen a little time after the three days and nights of darkness. This is what I believe.

People who are proud and think they are good, watch out, because we can only enter into heaven if we are fully aware that we do not deserve to go to heaven. It is only because of God’s Great Love and Mercy that He sent His Only Son on our behalf to pay the full price of our sins. We are not good. We are very skilled and masters of great wickedness. Don’t consider you are better than another person either. We all do it and it is our down fall. The more spiritual gifted we are, often it is because God choses the weakest or the most sinful to show off His glory. When people see God choses those kind of people to do great things in His Name, it gives people hope that He would use them also.

People Have a Tendency to go to Extremes

Don’t go to the other extreme which we are all equally good at and that is to keep our eyes on only our sins and not look at the Love Jesus has for you. The straight and narrow road, is to not go to those two extremes. Admit you are a terrible sinner and be truly sorrow for your sins, because you love God so much that you don’t want to hurt Him in any way. Then believe you are forgiven and I am afraid it is a daily process. One day you are humbler than another, but if you are genuinely seek to please God, you already have. So don’t let Satan bring you down by trying to get you to think you are either a saint or a sinner. You are both, as all God’s children that follow Jesus His Son faithfully.

Itching Ears

2 Timothy 4:2-3. Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage – with great patience and care-full instruction. For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.

This passage has always apply to every time in Christian history, but never so true as it is now. You see Churches overflowing, not because they teach the truth, but because they know what people want to hear. They become wealthy, preaching lies, because that is what people want to hear. Some visionaries are saying the true church may only have about forty people in it if they are lucky. But they will be sincere. Saint Teresa said something like this I rather have ten true, faithful men serving God then ten thousand that are not true. And in the bible it says God can win a war with only a few people as well as many. After all it is God who gives us victory not the strength of horses as King David said in the Psalms.

The Remnant Church

The Remnant Church is after all called the Remnant Church for a reason. Many people call themselves Christian but in fact give Christians a very bad name, because they are what Jesus refers to as goats. Jesus is the good shepherd who watches over His sheep. He died an extremely cruel death so that we can be saved and made worthy so that we can enter into His Kingdom. But many Christians do not like His laws. They want to dress them up so that they can live selfishly for themselves. No way will they enter the Kingdom of Heaven with that mindset.

Satan is ambitiously attacking what God prices the most. His race is hated more than any other race in the world. And we all know why! They are the chosen people of God. Then there is the spiritual Israel, (the Christian people), which is hated more then any other religion in the world. Why? Because God loves us so much. What God loves, Satan hates with a hatred of hell fire. We have to expect being hated for God. Jesus said if they hated me, they are going to hate you. This is true. Look at all the churches of God which church is hated more than any other church in God’s Kingdom. The Catholic Church.

Matthew 16:18-19. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

The Catholic Church

The Catholic Church is hated more than any other church of God. There is a very good reason for it. Jesus gave His Authority to govern the church to Saint Peter. Even in the early days there was a great deal of competition going on. There were break- a- ways even then. The truth still remains that Jesus handed over the reins to Saint Peter, not Saint John, Saint Mark and etc. All early churches were originally started with an apostle of Jesus. Something the Protestants cannot brag about.

But still the truth remains, Jesus handed the keys of heaven over to Saint Peter not to the other apostles. The Catholic Church first pope far as we are concern is Saint Peter. All the popes can be traced back down to Saint Peter. Why would people argue against that? Isn’t it simple? Satan is the only one that will profit with the church being divided. In war the first job is to divide and then conquer. When you do that! you weaken the enemy and it is a lot easier to conquer them. Isn’t that what Satan is aiming at? To weaken the Church of God, so that he can bring down and cast as many souls to hell as possible?

Satan Attacking the Catholic Church

There is a Catholic prophetess that goes by the name Maria Divine Mercy. I have been following the prophecies that God has given her for years. And one prophecy she was told by Mary that the keys of the Vatican was taken back when pope Francis was elected in. there is another prophecy Mary spoke to some children in Garabandal in 1961 and particular to one of the girls Mary told her how many more popes there will come in the future and she was told one pope Mary doesn’t count. Which one would that be? Pope Francis. There has never been a person so harmful to the Catholic Church in all history. Why is Satan attacking all churches and especially the Catholic Church so viciously now more than any other time in history? It is because his time is so, so short. He wants to dam as many souls to hell as possible. And he is roaring like a lion trying to devour anybody he can.

People Love a Scandal

People are weak minded and Satan knows it. Spread a scandal around and most people will fall for it. The crueller the scandal is about somebody, country or church etc. the more people will fall for it. Must be because deep down people love a scandal. In the Old Testament it says the worst thing you can do to someone is destroy their reputation. Many so call Christians are no different from the people of the world, because unfortunately many enjoy what people call a ‘good scandal’ except when they are the ones being targeted.

Many people complain that the Catholic faith has no sound doctrine. One thing many don’t seem to realise for starters that the majority of what Catholic and Protestants believe is identical. I would say about ninety eight percent of what Catholics teach is exactly the same what Protestant teach. You wouldn’t think so when you read Protestant books. I don’t know how many Protestant books I have read, basically brag about their superior knowledge about ‘grace’ as if Catholics have a different belief on how to get to heaven.

Catholics Beliefs

We have the same beliefs about how to get to heaven as they do. Nobody can enter heaven by no other means than through Jesus Christ our Saviour. He is the door to heaven. He paid the full price of all our sins. No works that we can do is worthy of God. He has to clean up everything we give Him, because nothing, other than the works of Jesus and only His sacrifice is worthy of God. And because of God’s generosity He accept Jesus efforts to save us. Jesus paid the ransom of all our sins so we can be made worthy to enter the Kingdom of Heaven forever and ever if we believe in Him. Too truly believe in Him I might add is to follow Him. You don’t follow somebody you don’t believe in.

Now far as things like what people call dogmas of the Catholic Church. They say it is not biblical. Well you be surprise how biblical they are. I have found a place to buy good Catholic books that sell books that answers all those kind of questions. It is called ‘Sopia Institute Press.’ The web address is sophiainstitute.com. There are so many good books I would love to buy from her. Catholics as a rule don’t seem to stick up for the Catholic Faith like Protestant stick up for theirs. And because there is so many good Catholic books that are sticking up for the Catholic’s beliefs I wonder if they are all ex-Protestants such as I am. Because we were all raised to protest. I am just wondering.



God is Pouring His Spirit out like Never Before.

We all need help to discern sometimes whether a vision or a visitation is from God, and if you are on your own, you can only pray about it and check it out if it agrees with the bible. My mother once complained to God that she wanted a perfect spiritual director to guide her and Jesus appeared to her and said ‘Aren’t I am enough.’ She grudgingly accepted it and then two months down the track she complained to God again and Jesus appeared a second time and said ‘you can if you want, but it is going to be useless.’ So she thought if it is going to be useless why bother. Now a great many people are going to complain for starters and say that was not from the Lord. The thing is we are all individual and God knows the best path for you and what He wants to accomplish in you.


I personally believe that in many ways my generation had to be self-taught in this area, since it wasn’t sociable acceptable amongst Christians to have supernatural gifts, especially speaking openly about it. I know there have always been people that God has used in a big way for many people to be healed, prophesy to etc. they are the lucky ones. Most of us were hushed up. What I am trying to say is what took my generation a lifetime to learn, this generation coming up will only take a very little time to learn if they are genuinely interested in walking with God, because they have a great many more teachers out there now. And also I believe the countless martyrs that have been put to death and still are being put to death for their belief in Jesus is not wasted. Because I believe God is rewarding the martyrs sacrifice in union with Jesus sacrifice on the cross, by releasing greater graces for the world to come to know Jesus and being filled with the gifts of the Holy Spirit in a most powerful way.

We are Called to be Co-Redeemers

It is a Catholic belief not shared by most Protestants. Protestants will say there is only one Redeemer and Jesus paid it all and that is that. What Catholics believe is all Christians are to follow Jesus all the way to Calvary, which means we are called to help save the world and one way to do that is to suffer as Jesus suffered. Now this is the tricky bit I find hard to explain, other people do a better job than I do but here goes. Jesus is the one only Redeemer. If Jesus didn’t pay for our sins all our efforts trying to help Jesus, save souls would be completely useless that includes evangelising. You can evangelise to someone all you like, but if you not backed up by grace you can forget it, you can’t save your own soul never alone somebody else’s.

God likes to work through His people. He doesn’t need anybody to help. It is just God’s way, He loves us to join in. It reminds me of the time when I was a small child. My mother would say ‘let’s make a cake.’ My mother did everything, got the bowl out, put all the ingredients in, stirred the cake mixture and then she would hand me over the wooden spoon, I would stirred it a couple of times and then she would put the cake mixture in the oven. Now far as I was concern I helped made the cake and my mother encourage me to think so. Our Heavenly Father is far more loving towards us than any parent on earth. He loves us to join in and do our little bit even though it is totally unnecessary.

God Rewards Christian Martyrs

Martyrs sacrifice their life for God, there is no sacrifice greater than that. So surely it stands to reason that God is going to reward them in very majestic manner. He is going to reward them more than any other person serving Him. When we pray we pray that God will spread His healing grace or saving grace on people all over the world and think nothing strange about it. What a great many people don’t seem to understand our whole life if lived for God is a prayer. God will reward you for living in union with Him. You live in union with Him when you let Jesus have His way with you.

I just believe that Christians Martyrs have made way for grace to spread throughout the whole world. I believe many conversion are taking place, because God has accepted their sacrifice so much so that He is rewarding them of souls being saved in a very powerful way. I believe when we make any kind of sacrifice and give it to God in union with Jesus suffering out of love and humility God always rewards us as if it was Jesus who made that sacrifice.

Reconcilliation between the Churches

Ephesians 6: 10-12

Be strong in the Lord and in his great power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can fight against the devil’s tricks. Our fight is not against people on earth but against the rulers and authorities and the powers of the world’s darkness, against the spiritual powers of evil in heavenly world.

I have to admit that sometimes I can get extremely hurt and angry when I hear people treating my faith as a Catholic like we are heathens. I realise that the fight is not between people but rather we are fighting the devil and the fallen angel’s influences on us and the world. So being angry with people is actually falling in the trap the devil is setting up for me. Not only to do me harm but everybody else who has a taste of my anger.

The importance of Forgiveness

All Christians if we listen to the loving words of Our Lord will be reconciled with Him. If we forgive others only then are we forgiven ourselves. It is a truth we can’t run away from. The problem I see in this world, people insist on living in a fantasy where they make their own rules and think they can get away with it. If you put your hand on a hot stove, your hand will burn, it is a fact of life. It saddens me to see people will refuse to believe in God and will not even try to obey His commandments and think there will be no negative results. There is a hell and too many people are going there minute by minute, forever. Christians included.

I remember I did a very stupid thing when I was about the age of eight years old. I use to visit a friend’s place. She lived opposite to a very old and run down cemetery. I seem to always come home at dusk and passing the cemetery at that time use to scare me. I suppose out of fear, I dared the most evil spirit to chase me down the block. I hadn’t even finished the dare and a very evil spirit was behind me. I looked up to God for help and saw a very small white cloud on top of me and it was moving towards the end of the block so I raced after it. I was using the cloud as a focus point to communicate to God. I remember saying to God you can forget the fire and brimstone in hell, just being with this one demon for eternity is a hell I would not be able to endure. When I finally got to the end of the block, all the clouds became alive and I could see that the angles and saints in heaven were jumping up and down with joy of my escape.

Demons in Hell

If that one demon was too much to bear, think of all the trillions of demons we would have to live with for ever, tormenting us because we were too proud to accept the teachings of Jesus Christ and obey Him. That is where so many people are going. I think to myself all the beautiful things God has given us, the sun, moon, the earth and each other and yet we chose to worship ourselves and then lose everything and a whole lot more that He is willing to give us in heaven.

I believe God has put a very strong calling in me to educate what Catholics actually believe in. I do believe many people really think they know what Catholics believe in but have been wrongly educated by well-meaning Christians, causing unnecessary sorrow to many people. A good idea is to try to put yourself in the person’s shoes that you are questioning. Human’s beings tend to rush in and judge others without getting the facts. Most of the time we judge people from wrong information.  In Psalms I think it says people judge by outward appearances. God looks into people’s hearts. He knows everything and He is the only one qualified to judge anybody. And He is so merciful unlike the human race.

There are many good Christians out there that do love one another, despite what church you go to. I believe they are the mature Christians that lead people to Christ. Those who still are acting like little children, fighting amongst themselves are not leading people to Christ, but in fact are doing the opposite. Jesus said we will show people of the world that we are His true disciples by the way we love one another. Also loving our enemies is a very difficult thing when we let our human nature get in the way. People of the world don’t love their enemies. it is something that they do not understand about Christians, but at the same time it attracts them and then they start asking questions, hopefully to God. Many have converted because of this unique feature of the Christian faith. It is no small deal to love one another as Jesus loves us. It wins souls like no other way.

When we pray for Healing, is it God’s Will to Heal every time?

is(14)Personally I don’t think it is God’s Will to heal you every time in this life. In Heaven we are all going to be completely healed. In this life I believe God does use sickness for many reasons. I don’t believe we should presume God doesn’t want to heal us. I believe we should always pray for healing, but sometimes I believe we do get a ‘no’ or at least God may want to delay the healing for another date. God will always answers prayers in a way that is best for our souls and people He wants you to help in some way.

Job 1:21

“Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart.’ The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised.”

If you read up on Job, the devil really attacked him in every way he could. Job learnt humility and a true appreciation of God’s sovereignty, through his tragedies. It wasn’t done just for Job’s sake, but we all learn from his experiences and get encouragement from Job’s trials. This applies to our trials that Satan brings on us. God is in complete control, but sometimes even after a great many prayers and fasting, God seems not to be listening to us. God is very attentive to our cries, but He also knows sometimes we need trials to learn a great many things for our souls and others benefits.

I have had many trials and the result of them cause me to be very deprived of sleep, for at least four decades. One part of my life, I would go to work and I would know by rights I should have been dead of sheer exhaustion. My body was in pain through lack of sleep and the thing I noticed despite of the credible exhaustion that I suffered, I would work harder than many people at work did. I was in constant amazement that God gave me the grace to work, when I knew I should have been dead. It was a miracle and I knew it. Four decades later it seemed that God put into my heart to call on Him for deliverance and healing of this problem. I knew I had some work to do for the Lord and yet I was dying. So I knew it wasn’t God’s will for me to die and since doctors couldn’t help me there was no other alternative but turn to God and start asking for the gift of faith, so that I could be healed and do the work God called me to do.

I bringing this up, because I believe God was using my sickness for those many years, because it was serving a purpose and then came a time when God put it into my heart, He was now wanting me to grow another way. I remember my mother told me once that my father’s family, was trying to stop my father from marrying my mother, because she was sickly. They said if you marry her you will get nothing but medical bills. What happened, it wasn’t my mother that brought in all the medical bills but my father. He became sick two years into the marriage. What my mother said was before the illness came onto him, my father had a chip on his shoulder, believing the world owed him something and he didn’t have any time for people who were sick. My father became sick when I was about a year old, so I only knew him as a sick man. My mother said it changed him. He became a very compassionate man towards other people especially those who were suffering. His heart softened towards his fellow man and he was a very good father, unlike his father.

This is one of the things that Protestants and Catholics tend not to agree with. I have read many Protestants books using the bible passages where Jesus heals everybody, not one person He didn’t heal. I also heard Protestants say that they were told by Jesus the part of the Lord’s Prayer when it says ‘Thy kingdom come Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.’ So in other words it is not God’s will that we are sick. Of course it is all true. Jesus never lies. I remember writing an article on ‘closed minds.’ Saying what Jesus will say to Protestants He will not necessary say to Catholics and it also applies what Jesus will say to Catholics, He doesn’t necessary say to Protestants. I know at this point people are going to think that I am committing blaspheme here. But I am not. God will speak to you where you are at. The more open you are to God the more He is able to explain everything to you. Nobody knows it all, we are all learning more and more about God and His ways every day.

I remember reading a Catholic who just received the gift of faith healing, so he went to the hospital and prayed for every sick person there. He came back home angry with God and told Him that he prayed for everybody and not one person got well. God then replied to him, ‘did I ask you to pray for them.’ Faith healers will pray over people and they will find not every one of them gets healed. Some of the faith healers will say it is the sick persons fault for not having enough faith. I also have heard where other faith healers will go up to a perfect stranger who is an atheist and pray over them and they will be healed.

I believe generally speaking Protestants tend to lean more to reaping and Catholics tend to lean more to sowing. Reaping and sowing require different skills. For example I remember a Catholic monk was talking to a crowd of people and he looked straight at me and he said ‘I don’t understand these stay people.’ For me it was obvious he wasn’t called to be a sower. He was called to reap. If you are called to reap in the harvest that God has sent you, you will need to be fairly healthy physically. To get around here and there and preach and heal and counsel etc. you need to have a healthy mind and body.

People who are sowers are called to full time intercession, most of the time. Travelling and full time intercession work doesn’t as a rule go together. And quiet often not always, sowers may be called to be what Catholics call being a ‘victim for God.’ Sickness is not an uncommon calling for this group. One saint that I love very much, because she has taught me so much and inspired me a great deal to carry my cross as well as Saint Francis’s Assis, is Sr. Josefa Menendez. Jesus communicated to her all the time. Her mother superior and other people looking after her spiritual progress would test her many times to make sure it was indeed Jesus communicating to her. The suffering Sr. Josefa was called to suffer for the Lord and on behalf of mankind, demanded so much courage that I can’t help loving her for what she has done for God and for her fellow man in union with the suffering of Jesus Christ.

Suffering has a place in our redemption and the ones God has called us to help. My sleep has improved incredibly so. It has taken over a year to get this far. I am still weak and exhausted, but my sleep has much improved. The time has not been wasted, because God has taught me so much about Himself that I would not have ever known. There is so much to learn and I know even when we are in heaven, we are going to learn about the marvels of God for ever, because there is no end to His greatness.

Novena Prayer through Sr. Josefa Menendez

isH87QAJS3Sister Josefa has to be one saint that has impressed me to follow Jesus more than any other, including saints in the Holy Bible. She suffered incredibly so for the love of God. Not many people can boast of descending into hell on a regular basis every week, thinking she is dammed forever and the Devil and all the demons believe it to be too, over and over again. God placed her there time after time to be a victim for souls, so that they may be saved from eternal fires. Not just for an hour at a time, often hours at a time.

She is so powerful, every time I say this novena with a humble heart, I always feel the power of God’s presence at the beginning at the novena. It is a truly a powerful novena, because of her faithfulness to suffer for Jesus and for souls, on His terms. Once again to suffer isn’t what it is all about, we can suffer and suffer and not save our own soul, but if it is done in obedience to God and in union with His suffering it has great merit. This is how God finds out the sheep from the goats. Goats will run from suffering, they only want the good things in life.

People might be confused why at the end of the novena we would offer up three prayers of Glory be’s, in honour of her. Some people would say straight out that is worshiping the saint, who is not canonised but I believe is more of a saint then many that are. Catholics do not consider that is worshiping at all but honouring her of her obedience to God. It might not seem obvious to a Protestant but we are in fact saying How Great Art God who can raise a lowly servant such as her and turn her into something so great that I envy her holiness to such a degree I want to follow Jesus as much as she did, if not to my very best for the Glory of God. 

The Novena Prayer

O Jesus, full of Grace and Charity, Victim for sinners, so impelled by Love for us that You willed to die on the cross, I humbly beseech You to glorify in Heaven and on earth The Servant of God and Victim Soul, Sr. Josefa Menendez, who faithfully participated in Your passion and shared Your sufferings, to prepare the way for The Devotion to the Divine Mercy, for the salvation of souls, and for the Glory of Your Heavenly Father. With confidence I beg You to grant me, through her intercession, the Grace of: ………. Make your request here.

Followed by one decade of the Rosary, or one decade of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy

And then

“Glory be the to the Father …. (Three times) In honour of Sr. Josefa

When you offer up a novena it is usually said for nine days in a row. You can actually say it as many times as you like, there is no law in Heaven that prevents you from doing what the Lord has put in your heart to do.



When You are Hurting Stay Focus on Jesus

I have just recently watched a video of a young women’s vision through a dream she had, of what martyrs in the great tribulation in the last days will suffer, on the internet and it really scared me. Also some visionaries have being saying that some people will choose to stay behind after the rapture, to help other Christians that are left behind. Another visionary said that Jesus was going to take His bride last June, but because of prayers it was delayed. Jesus has told her it is going to be delayed by months, not years. This visionary I do trust, because you can hear it in her voice that she is closely connected with God.

Praying for Martyrs

So as a result I have been praying and fasting for martyrs especially the martyrs in the great tribulation that their faith will be strong enough to make it. I am receiving so much grace and reassurance from God that I feel like He is saying, if we stay close to Him, all things will work out well. So it got me thinking about the young women’s vision. So many Christians were committing suicide, rather than face being tortured by the Anti-Christ and his men. I thought I could easily be one of them, then I remembered a few favourite passages that I have wrote down, they didn’t come from the Bible. There are great many things in the Bible that strengthens me, especially lately. The one I want to show you, is one promise from God by a Catholic prophet, that I read every day for years.

‘No matter what the enemy presents in your path, your God is with you, upholding you. Know that I am quite able to render you strong if you will only look to me. Relying on my power to see you through.’

Another passage that helps me and once again I read every day for years to strengthen me, came from a book called “He and i” by Gabrielle Bossis. Jesus tells her;

If you want to gain strength to make a sacrifice, don’t look at the sacrifice. Look at My joy.

And another one from the same person;

You are still too little for me to tell you that the only end is suffering, for suffering, you see, is the surest way of coming close to me and being like me.


My conclusion is simply stay focus on Jesus, don’t look at yourself at all. If you look at your weakness you will fall. If you keep your eyes on Jesus, He will give you all you need to get you through everything and anything. Even if it is by supernatural means. Now everybody is going to tell me, ‘I could have told you that.’ So could I have told myself that, but for some reason when we face a problem with fear, we forget all that we have been taught in a moment. So it is real important to pray to forget self and only keep your eyes on Jesus. Now I know there are some occasions we can’t keep our minds on Jesus, but the more you think of Him, the more you commune with Him, the more He becomes part of you and you Him. So He does become your life. When you live for Jesus alone, you will experience His peace in everything that comes your way.

Difference Between A Curse and A Calling

Romans 12:2

Do not be shaped by this world; instead be changed within by a new way of thinking. Then you will be able to decide what God wants for you; you will know what is good and pleasing to him and what is perfect.

The more you love God, the closer He will bring you to Himself and reveal His secrets. The world always confuses you when you listen to it. It preaches the very opposite of what God teachers us. When we worry about things, we don’t think clearly enough, neither can we discern God’s voice. It is so important to have quiet times with God. God is always talking to you. We have to learn how to recognise Him, so ask Him often until He is ready to show you. Plenty of times we are too busy to even try to listen to Him. Demons also talks to you all day long and for some reason we tend to listen to Satan’s voice more clearly and obey him rather than God.

A Curse Can be Disguised As A Calling

People might be saying things like ‘no way would I ever obey Satan.’ The thing is every time you give into a temptation, which is evil, you are giving into the demonic world. God never temps you to do evil. All curses; which are the result of sin, come from Satan indirectly or directly. People often blame God for all the evil in the world when they should blame people for letting Satan working in them. Satan will often use people to do his dirty work. He loves using Christians, who think they are actually doing the will of God, but are not. And they in fact do the most harm. People whether they like us or not, do expect us to behave in a Christlike fashion and when we don’t, they use it as an excuse to say Jesus is not the Son of God. And that all Christians are following a false god. That Jesus is just a man, not the Son of God at all. We all have been there, believing at some point we are doing the will of God, only to find out later that we have made a very big mistake. Doing God’s will, will always give us peace, even in the midst of a huge battle.

Ephesians 6:10-12

Be strong in the Lord and in his great power. Put on the full armour of God so that you can fight against the devil’s evil tricks. Our fight is not against people on earth but against the rulers and authorities and the powers of this world’s darkness, against the spiritual powers of evil in the heavenly world.

People don’t realise that poverty for example could be a curse. It may be the will of God that you are free of sickness, so that you can get in and do the work God is calling you to do. Sometimes it is God’s will that you seek poverty for the glory of God and sometimes God does use sickness for His glory. The trick is knowing the will of God. When it is a calling; you are just drawn to it. And you can’t always explain why. I am not particularly interested in wealth, but spiritual wealth. If I was wealthy according to the world, it would make me unhappy. I would find it a distraction from my real calling. Other people are called to be wealthy to serve God with it. And show the world that there is far more important things then fame and wealth. In their own way they will draw people to understand how good kind and loving our God is.

I was amazed to find out just how many holy saints are among the royalty. King Henry the eight destroyed a church, because it housed many Catholic saints, who  bodies were incorruptible. He was destroying the evidence, that God was pleased with all these saints. A great many of them were royalty. I always had a bad opinion of the royalty ability to stay true to God. I thought they had too many temptations to stay on the straight and narrow road that leads to eternal life. When I read that I repented.

What A Force Calling May Look Like

1 Timothy 6:6-10

Serving God does make us rich, if we are satisfied with what we have. We brought nothing into the world, so we can take nothing out. But, if we have food and clothes, we will be satisfied with that. Those who want to become rich bring temptation to themselves and are caught in a trap. They want many foolish and harmful things that ruin and destroy people. The love of money causes all kinds of evil. Some people have left the faith, because they wanted to get more money, but they have caused themselves much sorrow.

I think that really explains things well. If what you want, brings sorrow, if it keeps your mind off God, if you become obsessive about it to the point you become blind sighted, about the people you are called to love and nurture, if the door keeps closing on your face and will not open, if it becomes a god to you. If it does not produce a greater love for God you can guarantee it is not a calling from God. Even a true calling can cause sorrow, because the calling becomes more important than God. Sometimes we want to answer a calling our way and our timing. It never works out well for us and the people around us. You have to learn to let go and trust God. And genuinely seek to please God and that it is not always about ‘you.’ When we are cursed by Satan, it takes away the glow in our lives. Our minds and hearts are more on what is working against us. There is plenty of sorrow and bitterness.

A True Calling from God

When it is a calling and we doing it for the love of God. It has the effect of bring us closer to God and the people he has brought into our lives. Everything just opens up to us and made easy. It feels like it is meant to be, we feel free and completely contented with our lot in life. There is no envy of other people’s calling, because we know we are doing what God wants of us. Now after saying all that, it doesn’t mean we won’t have to suffer and share the suffering of Christ, because we will. It just that we are made for that particular cross. And God knows how to lift us up when we can’t take it anymore.

One day I was looking at a picture of the crucified Lord. And something within me felt compassion for Him, so much so I wanted to give Him something of what He gave me, back to Him. To show my appreciation of what He gave me. You get it, I was being called to give God permission to make me a martyr for Him. And He responded to it instantly, letting me know that it will happen one day, but not just yet, but He was making preparations for it. He showed me how much joy it gave Him that I offered. If your suffering, whatever it is, if it is united with Jesus’s suffering, God will then release even more grace to people who will not recognise Jesus as the true Saviour. We are all called to save souls one way or another in union with Jesus.

Delivering Yourself from Demons

Ephesians 6:16

In addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.

The faith he is talking about is not faith in your faith, rather faith in the love of Jesus has for you and that He has truly paid the price to free you from your sins, curses and other evil circumstance.

In this article I am using my own experience to help me explain to you how you might be able to deliver yourself from demons. They say it is best to get somebody experienced in deliverance to delivery you first and then you will be better be able to continue from there. They say that the born again Christians all have the ability to do it. If you are not born again you will need to go to an experience person who can do this. And before you can be delivered you have to repent and hand your life over to Jesus.

Demons Are Not Bigger Than God

People are often too afraid to think or talk about demons as if they are bigger than God. I had recently a wonderful experience which the Lord blessed me. I could see that we are so tiny before God. If it was us looking from His place, we would not be able to see ourselves at all! We are that tiny. And then a  thought came to me that Satan is just a speck before God. With that I felt Satan’s presence straight away and he was so angry with me, because it was a truth that he could no longer hide from me.

People are too afraid to combat demons. You might hear people say it is written in the bible, to flee from Satan. If you are going to fight the good fight how can you run from Satan. The more you are in love with God, the more Satan follows you and tries to bully you into thinking he can’t be beaten. Satan has power over you, if you are too afraid of him to fight him in Jesus’s name. There are people who are too keen to fight him and that comes out of pride. But if you are minding your own business and then he shows up, you have to take a stand. You have to believe Jesus is all for you and has the power, the means and the will to protect you.

An Angry Demon

I had an interesting experience not that long ago. I have been learning how to cast out demons in Jesus’s name for about a year now and was starting to grow more confident in that area. When just out of the blew, I looked down on my finger that I use to wear my favourite ring on. There was a huge wart appearing and I could see a demon in it and he was so angry with me. I knew he had chosen to put a wart on that finger, to get back at me for casting out some demons. I had been casting out demons like restlessness, stress things like that in Jesus’s name, but never for healing. So this was new challenge for me. I called out Jesus’s name a few times, while looking at the wart, at least two times it was invisible and then came back again. I knew God was telling me if you only believe in me,I would get rid of the whole wart in an instant. Well my faith wasn’t that strong. I called on Jesus’s name the next day over the wart and it took a little while say roughly four to six days before it went, completely away.

Casting Out Demons Is Not Always Scary

When I started to deliver myself from demons in Jesus’s name, which was about a year ago, I found it is no way frightening. I have had frightening demons attacks before many years ago, so I know they can be terrify when they wage war on you. But at that time I did not know how to bind them. I just kept praying the ‘Hail Mary’s ‘prayers and eventually God would put another prayer in my head and then I would say it and it usually got rid of the demon. I believe it was meant to be that way in those days, to expiate sin. Catholics believe sometimes God wants us to suffer with His Son so that more grace will be sent out to the world. The thing is Jesus has paid the full price of our redemption, but not everybody is willing to receive it. So God wants us to share a little of Jesus suffering, so as to give them more grace in the hope they will receive it this time. Our suffering is useless if we do not unite it with Jesus’s suffering. isW102ZQ1L

I remember for example once I was being attack and for some unknown reason I stopped praying and I could see the demon, he could not believe in his luck and straight away I felt his claws go straight in and through me. I then quickly started praying ‘The Hail Mary prayers’ again and when I finish saying my prayer the claws went straight out. Mary’s prayers are powerful, they are not to be underestimated.

I have three books in my possessions that have really helped me, understand more about self-deliverance.  The very first time I tried to deliver myself, I used a book that came with four CD’s explaining deliverance. So when the person explained it all, it was now turn to start praying for deliverance. I was not sure what was going to happen. If it would work or not, because I have tried to cast out demons before awhile back and it did not work. To my surprise after repeating what he said, demons did go. Not all the demons in me have gone, but I was amaze that any left me at all. Notice I did not have much faith. But the faith I did possess was in the love of God had for me.

There are many and many Christians, who do not believe Christians can be troubled by demons living inside them. But just think for one moment. What are demons? When a person is casting out demons they might say things like. ‘ I cast out the demon of pride or bitterness or addictions or lust or lying spirt etc.’ The list goes on and on. Now have a real good look inside of you, what demons do you have? Be honest. We all have them.

People Can Use Demons As An Excuse for Their Behavour

The church stopped preaching about demons, because people would say things like ‘it was the demon that made me do it.’ We are all called to fight the good fight, there is nobody exempt from it. If you do not fight, those demons are going to make your life very difficult to endure and might end your life prematurely.  It is not God’s will that we should be a slave to demons, we are all called to be free in Christ Jesus. In one of the books he believes delivering yourself from demons is an ongoing exercise.

I have read, demons may leave the body through coughing, yawning or crying, I think there are probably other ways too, but this is a good start. When the demons left me the first time around it was coughing. I tried it another day and I was crying and I had great difficulty repeating the words after him, because I was crying so much. In other words Jesus was casting the demons out before I could finish asking Him to do so. I now notice if you have a thought that really affects your heart in praising God, that will also releases God power to remove the demon.

I think everybody has to find their own way, but through the help of these three books I found a way that has worked for me. My biggest problem at first was hearing everybody saying, you have to have faith, before any miracles can happen. My question was always how do you get this faith?  I found praising God and letting yourself go and be a child again is the best way to grow in faith. Because more times than not God will respond to you in a supernatural way, to reveal something to you. When you praise Him, just because you love Him, not because you want to get something from Him. Really has a strong affect on God. Just put ourselves in His place, we hate being used, so does God.

An Important Trick

I find when after you just cast out the demons in the name of Jesus. You exhale and it then starts the ball rolling for some reason. You find you may cough, cry or yawn is a good sign they have left. Demon are like gangs.  More likely than not you will have to cast out many demons. It is hard work and some people’s faith is stronger than others. Some people call out the chief demon, (the top dog). If you can do that all the demons under him will leave instantly, after their leader.

The next step is to keep them out. With me they try to bring doubt into me that they have indeed left or that it is easy for them to come back in again.  I believe everybody will have their own method in keeping them out, but keeping your eyes on the glory of God and His power and love for you is important. After a few months of this, one day it just dawn on me, the demons can’t get in without my say so. They can bully or they like but they simply can’t get in without my permission, I was looking at my favourite picture of Jesus at the time, and Jesus materialised in the Spirit and told me it was correct, they can’t get in unless I let them. I found you can also just rebuke them in Jesus name and they go.
