    Jesus on creation.

    Our Lord's message to John Leary

    Saturday, December 17, 2016:
    Jesus said: “My people, you believe that I created the earth and the rest of the universe according to the Book of Genesis. There are some people who believe in the big bang theory, but it does not explain where all the hydrogen came from to make up the stars. I am the First Cause of everything. In today’s Gospel reading you are seeing My genealogy from Abraham down to St. Joseph according to St. Matthew. In St. Luke’s Gospel you see all the generations from St. Joseph down to Adam, the first man, who I created. You have also seen Darwin’s theory of evolution, but there is no way that mutations can change the chromosome counts. If evolution was true, you would still be seeing changes in the animals. But there are no leaps in chromosome counts, because I created everything from the beginning. Scientists, who promote these theories, are mostly atheists who do not believe in My existence. I am still providing miracles for you every day in your births, where I create the life spirit in the soul of every baby at conception. There are so many things that man does not know about life, and when you cannot explain something in reality, you develop strange theories that have no proof. This is why you call the big bang and evolution theories because there is no proof. My believers understand that I am their Creator, and I am worthy of their thanks and their love for creating them. I love all of mankind and all of My creations, because you are My sons and daughters that I love enough to die for on My cross.”

    habits die hard...and many times habits relapse...this is relapse of 2008 church attacks...people commit so many sins...
    sins get publicised as heroic acts...however the sinner gets the reward which he has to bear all by himself without any publicity.....dara singh caused death to missionary and his children....many people hailed him at that time...now he has spent almost life time in prison alone, no one is there to share his agony....maya kodnani who provoked riots in Gujarath is now a mental patient...

    Jesus on Asteroids...

    MESSAGE GIVEN BY OUR LORD TO WILLIAM COSTELLIA – 24th FEBRUARY 2019 – 3.30 PM
    NO. 780

    OUR LORD: “I greet you My beloved son, most pleasing to me: In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. Amen. Be at peace, for today I come to instruct Our children to be ready, for the tribulations are about to fall, as mankind remain stubborn in their ways.”

    “My beloved and holy son, do not be afraid because the world must be chastised, as man goes further into darkness and I cannot allow this to continue. The two asteroids are close by, My son, but not yet naked to the eye. The world will get a shock, because I am going to allow one of them to enter the Earth to wake up mankind, before the Antichrist – the man of unbelievable sin – enters in full, [into] man’s affairs.”

    "Mankind believe that God is asleep as they continue on their merry way, deceiving themselves, as well as their brothers and sisters, that there is no God. But little do they know what will awaken them.”

    O mankind: Do you think little of Me, allowing the sins of the world to continue, believing I am asleep? Little do they know that I am concerned of every effort man makes, but little [is made] on their behalf towards loving God and atoning for their sins.”

    Our Lady on free will choices.

    August 22, 2015.

    Feast of the Queenship of Mary

    Our Lady comes as Our Lady of Grace. She says: "Praise be to Jesus."

    "I am Queen over Heaven and earth not for My own benefit, but to give glory to God. I reign as My Son permits, notwithstanding the free will decisions of mankind. Therefore, My Reign is over good and evil. As Queen of the Holy Angels I continuously send angels to thwart and conquer the evil that is in hearts."

    "My Dominion is never lessened by the free will choices which lead mankind to evil. Rather, My Strength is made manifest by man's weaknesses."

    "I will never turn away from the sincere effort of any soul who seeks My Intercession. I will shed the Light of Truth upon darkness and reveal the motives which lie hidden in hearts, if you beseech Me."

    "As any mother would be, I am continuously solicitous of your every need. As Queen, I take up My Reign with love in any heart that opens to Me."

    "All of Heaven - all of earth - will recognize Me as Queen when My Son returns - all for the glory of God."

    "My Son, in His Great Generosity, has given Me reign over believers and unbelievers alike. I reign over the hearts of those who oppose Me and who oppose the Truth. I reign over all the holy souls in Purgatory, continually presenting their plight to My Divine Son. The greatest sinner is still My child and I will, with love, intercede for him - hoping in the last seconds of life he will turn to the Truth which is Divine Mercy Itself."

    "So you see, no one escapes My Motherly Care. I am always mankind's protection, leading to My Son. I do not voice any opinions apart from My Son, but always reflect His Divine Love."

    God the Father on a spirit of intelligentsia.

    August 8, 2019
    Public


    Once again, I (Maureen) see a Great Flame that I have come to know as the Heart of God the Father. He says: "My children, beware of those who deny the Truth of these Messages.* Many have made gods of money, intellect and their own opinions. Everything given here** is scripturally sound. Each Message is substantiated by a Scripture passage. Heaven offers no Message which is against faith and morals, therefore no Truth can oppose these Words of guidance."

    "There is, these days, a pharisaical spirit in the world. This spirit opposes the Holy Spirit and encourages opposition to the inspirations of the Holy Spirit. It is a spirit of control - a spirit of intelligentsia. Sometimes this pharisaical spirit is actually a spirit of fear."

    "Trustfully surrender to the Truth which is My Paternal Heart - a Heart which longs to embrace each heart and the heart of the world."

    * The Messages of Holy and Divine Love at Maranatha Spring and Shrine.
    ** The apparition site of Maranatha Spring and Shrine.

    Read 1 Thessalonians 2:13+

    And we also thank God constantly for this, that when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men but as what it really is, the word of God, which is at work in you believers.

    God The Father on coming of a defining moment.

    December 14, 2018
    Public

    Once again, I (Maureen) see a Great Flame that I have come to know as the Heart of God the Father. He says: "There is coming a defining moment when every soul will have to choose good or evil - salvation or condemnation. Some will not have time to change the course of their conscience, but will die in their sins."

    "I tell you these things now, to hold the righteous on track and to convict those who have made evil choices. Those most in need of conversion often do not realize it. They make no attempt to live according to My Commandments. Some believe they are living in obedience to My Commandments, but in their compromised state of mind, they have redefined what I command to suit their own lifestyle. At their judgment, there will be no debate."

    "Since you do not know the hour or moment of your final judgment, live wisely and be prepared. Some will come to Me before the massive judgment I refer to. At that moment, I see into their hearts. If they have waited too long to be converted, there will be no more chances."

    Read Luke 12:40; 21:34-36+

    You also must be ready; for the Son of man is coming at an hour you do not expect.

    "But take heed to yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a snare; for it will come upon all who dwell upon the face of the whole earth. But watch at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that will take place, and to stand before the Son of man."

    I was reading in the mainstream media that Jarkhand is the worst state for the Christians for atrocities under the BJP ruling.

    After PM Modi's BJP government has appointed Pratap Sarangi new minister, died Bajrang Dal when Graham Staines was burnt alive with his sons it seems Rashtriya Swayamsevak mission of 'Pehle Kasai, phir Isai (butchers/Muslims first, then Christians)' slowly extended to the rest of India.

    Now the BJP government back to power under CM Yediurappa 'Church attack 2.0' seems to have come back.

    God The Father on gamut of heroism.

    Message to Maureen

    August 18, 2019
    Public


    Once again, I (Maureen) see a Great Flame that I have come to know as the Heart of God the Father. He says: "I wish to address today the topic of heroism. You know someone who is most certainly a war hero and will be rightfully acknowledged as such. In My Eyes, his mother and all those who prayed for him are heroes. So too, are the little souls who pray unceasingly for the intentions of the heart of Heaven - that is My Paternal Heart, My Son's Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Counted, in My Eyes, as heroic are all those who face hopeless situations with courage and persevere. My war heroes are also those who recognize the ongoing war between good and evil and pray for the victory of Truth."

    "If you are charitable towards those in need - physical, spiritual or emotional - you too are a hero to Me, as well as, to those whom you assist. Do not discount any form of charity as an act of heroism. Great heroes who save lives deserve great recognition. I, in no way, make light of this. Consider however, the hidden heroes - for instance- those who save lives by praying against abortion. Further still are the victim souls, who suffer various crosses in silence. There are many and varying heroes in your midst. Pray for all of them."

    Our Lady on Present moment.

    October 9, 2016
    Public

    Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says: "Praise be to Jesus."

    "Dear children, it is never too late to place God in the center of your hearts and allow Him to take charge of the present moment. A good example of this was the historic storm which brushed by your coast in the last few days. Some lost their lives here - many more in the Caribbean. More damage and loss of life would have occurred without prayer. If you do not allow God His rightful place in your hearts soon, He will lift His Hand of Protection from your hearts and your lives."

    "The world is moving at a momentous pace away from God's Will. Even gender is no longer God's Choice, but man's. The most dangerous place in the world is the mother's womb. Yet, while tampering with God's Will, mankind is astonished by the onset of terrorism, and increased natural disasters. He foolishly believes he can control the climate. He only has recourse to God in the hour of desperation."

    "Much of this could be stopped in an effort from the pulpit. This is where the spirit of love of popularity and money wins priority. Many are answerable for this abuse of authority."
