Message received from Jesus on 14th January 2011
The world you live in is in most dire straights. Confusion and doubt are rampant. This is the work of My adversary. Even My most faithful are being affected. This is meant to cause division. The cup has been tilted, the moral compass swings like a pendulum.
My people must choose for God. As you see cloud formations in rapid motion, soon the thief comes in the night. Quickly, quickly, do not be caught off guard as the bridesmaids left without their oil. My Mother’s pleas have gone unnoticed. The signs of the times you are living in have magnified. Still My people do not take notice for they are caught up in fanciful pleasures and the ways of the world. They have turned a deaf ear.
A light will appear in the sky. All will recognize this sign as supernatural for they will not be able to deny the magnificence of God, the creator of the universe. Let not your hearts be troubled for I come as a just judge and all those that recognize Me as their Lord and their God, I will recognize before My Father. Persecution of My Church is at hand.
Illumination is at hand. Behold this great gift of mercy for all of My people. This is a crucial hour in history. Be brave and steadfast, the hour approaches when all men will see the state of their souls as My Father sees them.
My Mother’s banner waves. I bestow peace and love to My people for a new day dawns. Rejoice I say, rejoice and be glad when these things happen for I say to you, salvation is at hand. I have heard My people’s cry. Stay suited in holy armor, recall your baptismal promises.
I bless and anoint you in my peace and love in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
Commentary on Jesus' message of 14th January 2011 in light of the disaster in Japan
One dictionary definition of a sign is “any object, event, pattern, etc., that conveys a meaning”. What then is the meaning conveyed by the signs of the times we are living in? To answer this question it is necessary to identify the signs, and for that we must have eyes to see them. Jesus spoke of this in an earlier message to Mary. He said,
“Listen, to the silent breeze blowing, watch the signs, they are all around you. Can you feel things beginning to change as My new era is advanced? Do not your special friends and others mention the changes in the world in which you live? All those whose eyes see and ears hear have been moved by My grace to see the darkness of the world. Lucifer is the prince of darkness; he has infiltrated all parts of society and has caused chaos everywhere. So many, many, of My children are lost, allowing themselves to be used as puppets. They have hardened their hearts to Me, their Lord and their God. The pleas of My Mother have gone unnoticed. Wake up, wake up, I say, foolish men.” (April 9, 2006)
The signs then, point simultaneously to the ever growing darkness of the world and the approaching era of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Jesus spoke of the signs again in a message given during November 2007. He said,
“Much chaos and destruction will occur. Do not My people recognize the signs for they are all around you? Even nature revolts, there is evil everywhere. What misfortune awaits My people; they are full of arrogance, pride, and evil. They are but pigs in their own squalor. For surely I tell you, they will cry and wail and grind their teeth. For they worship idols and have put false gods before Me. Perdition will be theirs. Stay steadfast and raise the Banner high, My Maria. Evil is everywhere. The evil one has infiltrated My Church. The mountains will erupt, the earth will shake violently, the skies will part, great thunder and lightening and fire will occur. But, for My faithful, these signs will bring only great anticipation of all new things, for as I usher in My new era, My faithful will be kept under the mantle of My Mother’s protection.” (November 11, 2007)
Have we seen the signs? Is the earthquake in Japan just the latest and most devastating disaster to date? Jesus is asking us to wake up, to be aware of what is going on around us and to choose God. How telling that Jesus says, “the moral compass swings like a pendulum.” A compass is only of any use if it always points north. What hope is there for the world when our guide to right and wrong is in constant motion as if there is no right to be found? Surely God will act to restore the moral compass. Jesus says, “The illumination is at hand”. Jesus has spoken to Mary of this event many times in the past, for example:
“Be at peace, as My Spirit will be heralded in upon the world in the most profound way. The earth will tremble and crack, the skies will open, great crashing thunder will sound, lighting—huge bolts, will illuminate the sky. The consciences of men will be enlightened; this day is approaching. My angels stand ready to sound the trumpets at My command. There will still be some, because of their arrogance, who will curse and run the other way. Their wickedness will blind them. Pray that the lukewarm will once again be faithful and will stand up for the truth. For I am the way, the truth, and the life.” (April 5, 2004)
“Oh, what the folly of foolish men have cost them, for they will run and cry in horror as the state of their souls are revealed to them, for they will see the state of their souls as My Father sees them.” (April 13, 2005)
“Be prepared as the mountains rumble, the sea roars, the winds will blow mightily, and the earth will tremble. The hour has come when men will see their souls as My Father sees them. Pray, for so many of My children will run in horror; pray that My mercy will be theirs.” (March 20, 2006)
Jesus describes this event as a “great gift of mercy for all of My people.” He will invite everyone to accept His mercy, to be faithful, and to stand up for the truth thus restoring the moral compass to the world. It should be expected that such an important event as this, which has been spoken of by many visionaries, be found in Sacred Scripture and not only in private revelation. Based upon the description given to Mary on April 5, 2004 (the earth trembling and cracking, the skies opening, great crashing thunder and huge bolts of lightening illuminating the sky) one can speculate that the event is described in the following passage from the Book of Revelation:
When the Lamb opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. Then I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them. And another angel came and stood at the altar with a golden censer; and he was given much incense to mingle with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar before the throne; and the smoke of the incense rose with the prayers of the saints from the hand of the angel before God. Then the angel took the censer and filled it with fire from the altar and threw it on the earth; and there were peals of thunder, voices, flashes of lightning, and an earthquake..(Revelation 8:1-
Notice too, in the same message on April 5, 2004 Mary was told, “My angels stand ready to sound the trumpets at My command.” and likewise just before the golden censor is mentioned in the Book of Revelation the seven angels who stand before God are given seven trumpets to sound.
How is the golden censor related to the illumination? Before the censor is thrown on to the earth the angel mingles much incense with the prayers of the saints. This action is clearly necessary and it points to the cooperation of the saints with God in obtaining mercy for the world. Think then of the prayers of the saints. For years now the Church has prayed, “For the sake of His sorrowful passion have mercy on us and on the whole world.” This is quoted from the Divine Mercy Chaplet as proposed to Saint Faustina by Jesus and recognised most fully by Pope John Paul II when he inserted the Feast of Divine Mercy into the Liturgical Calendar on the second Sunday of Easter. Without knowing it, the saints have been praying this prayer, and many others, invoking God’s mercy so that the illumination may come.
Jesus says, “the illumination is at hand”, but the exact time is not given, instead He exalts everyone not to be caught off guard as the bridesmaids left without their oil. You can be sure that not one of the thousands of people who died during the earthquake and tsunami in Japan expected to meet the bridegroom on 11th March 2011. Jesus warns of another sign of the times when he says, “Persecution of My Church is at hand.” To those who read this commentary we reiterate, quickly, quickly, choose for God. To those who already have, we reiterate Jesus' closing remarks, “My Mother's banner waves. I bestow peace and love to My people for a new day dawns. Rejoice I say, rejoice and be glad when these things happen for I say to you, salvation is at hand. I have heard My people's cry. Stay suited in holy armor, recall your baptismal promises.”
