CHINESE CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION 2

The new laws give Communist Party officials the authority to bar children from religious services, decide the content of religious instruction, and approve or disapprove of the time and place of religious services.

CHINESE CHRISTIANS PERSECUTED

 

The State Administration for Religious Affairs (SARA) has a new law with the assurance that all Chinese citizens are free to believe whatever they want and to engage in religious activity—as long as it’s within the tighter limits. The regulations include:

  • No religious activities that are not approved by SARA.
  • No one may provide a venue for religious services that are not approved by SARA.
  • No publishing religious materials without approval from SARA.
  • No foreign or domestic donations may be made to any religious organization that hasn’t been approved by SARA.
  • No one may call themselves a pastor without the approval of SARA.
  • No international religious exchanges may happen without the approval of SARA.
  • No one may study theology at school without the approval of SARA.

CHINESE CHRISTIANS PERSECUTED

The destruction of Golden Lampstand Church, where more than 50,000 Christians reportedly worshiped, was planted with explosives in an underground worship hall to demolish the building. It had been constructed with nearly $2.6m (£1.9m) in contributions from local worshippers in one of China’s poorest regions. 

The church had faced “repeated persecution” by the Chinese government, said ChinaAid. Hundreds of police and hired thugs smashed the building and seized Bibles in an earlier crackdown in 2009 that ended with the arrest of church leaders.

Those church leaders were given prison sentences of up to seven years for charges of illegally occupying farmland and disturbing traffic order, according to state media. The church was allegedly constructed nearly a decade ago in violation of building codes.

CHINESE CHRISTIANS PERSECUTED

Christians and human rights advocates are alarmed over an aggressive crackdown on house churches in China, where the faithful are forced to call their gatherings “patriotic” assemblies or sent to prison where they can face torture, according to a new report.

Large fines can be imposed on unsanctioned activities. For example, organizers of unapproved overseas trips for believers to attend conferences, or for Catholics to attend papal Masses, could be fined up to $30,000.

  • No one may use their home for religious practices that are not approved by SARA (including home or family Bible studies).

CHINESE CHRISTIANS PERSECUTED

After each crackdown, people follow Jesus even more fervent.

CHINESE CHRISTIANS PERSECUTED

Throughout the past 2,000 years,  many empires have fallen; the only thing that hasn’t perished is the church, How can the eradication of churches be possible? The authorities are not God. 

Freedom of religion in China is provided for in the Constitution of the People’s Republic of China, with an important caveat: the government protects what it calls “normal religious activity,” defined in practice as activities that take place within government-sanctioned religious organizations and registered places of worship.

Constitution of China, Article 36: Freedom of Religion

No state organ, public organization or individual may discriminate against citizens who believe in, or do not believe in, any religion. The state protects “normal religious activities.”

In the Chinese legal system courts do not have the power of judicial review. In other words, they cannot consider the constitution when deciding cases.  A judge  cannot make an interpretation of the Constitution; that is as sensible as saying a judge cannot make a judgment on rape cases because it would be too embarrassing.

People can believe what they want, but the state reserves the right to set the boundaries within which their beliefs can be practiced.

To use an analogy, we will introduce small adjustments, which SARA alone decide what is” normal freedom activities”.

  • You have the freedom to go anywhere in China, but you can only walk.
  • You can associate with anyone in China that you like, except those with yellow skin.
  • You have freedom of speech and freedom to talk to each other in China, except you cannot use any Chinese language.
  • You have the freedom of the press, except you must use the oldest Gutenberg press.
  • You are free to choose your state in life, except any job that pays you a salary.
  • You have the freedom of religion, but SARA set the boundaries:
    • You must face your backside to the altar of worship when worshiping.
    • You have to worship outside only in the rain or snow without umbrellas.
    • You can only worship  in the morning between 1:00 am to 3:00 am.
    • You must worship our supreme leader’s wife’s cat.

God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions  show a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17  (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE.

CHINA DECEASED RELATIVES

Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today.

CHINA AND THE HOLY SPIRIT

In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family.  The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the Chinese family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ.  No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY. 

Christianity and Hinduism Differences

BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!

Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is  a relationship with God, your Creator,  in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles.  How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus Christ.

HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?

Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth. 

Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.

This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels  two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.

He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical  sense of peace.

DREAMS AND VISIONS

God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart.  God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.

CHINA & DECEASED RELATIVES 2

In China, 44 percent of religiously unaffiliated people have worshiped at a burial site in the past year. Yet, many young Chinese look down on these traditions, calling them “superstitious” and “old-fashioned.”

CHINA AND DECEASED RELATIVES
A Chinese man brings flowers to the grave site of his deceased relatives to mark the Qingming.

Local funerals involve much pomp and ceremony; the family uses extravagance to demonstrate their love for the deceased. The night vigil shows a sign of respect. 

CHINA DECEASED RELATIVES

How would we both honor the meaning of Christian funerals and also Chinese traditions? Both are different. Some think that Christianity shows excessive love for foreign things.  They say it shows a rejection of one’s roots. Yet, these traditional funeral ceremonies seemed strange to many of a younger generation.

CAN SAINTS IN HEAVEN HEAR OUR PRAYERS?

A Christian funeral with Christian meaning  includes important prayers for the deceased.  Catholics believe in offering prayers for deceased relatives

 “In heaven the elders and angels offer up the prayers of the saints [on earth] as incense before the throne of God”                                                                                                                                                     Revelation 5:8; 8:3-4

This implies that the angels and elders (holy Christians  now in heaven) hear the prayers of every Christian on earth, and join their prayer now with ours: they can hear our prayers for the deceased.

SPIRIT-FILLED CHINA

The Charismatic Movement with the Holy Spirit has exploded at an amazing rate. It is the fastest-growing religious movement in the world. Charismatics now number more than half a billion worldwide. 

The Holy Spirit works with Spirit-filled ministries, especially in China. The majority of the estimated 100 million Chinese believers have come to Christ through Holy Spirit preaching and teaching. They are converted because of the work of the Holy Spirit in healing the sick and performing all kinds of miracles.

 Persecuted churches experience the Holy Spirit. We can see God do the miraculous right now in the persecuted Church. 

Three-Self Churches on the other hand never experienced that kind of explosive growth. Until now. Sun, the pastor, said the Holy Spirit showed up while he was preaching at his Three-Self Church:

“We were in the middle of the service. Suddenly everyone at the church felt the Holy Spirit anointing fall. Some couldn’t stand straight;others fell down. Some were dizzy and nauseous. When the worship began, people started crying. After the service, some were being healed. I saw demons being chased away from people’s bodies.”

This story spread very quickly and other pastors wanted to know how to experience the same anointing of the Holy Spirit.

JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU.

CHINA DECEASED RELATIVES

WE LOVE YOU.

“I Love you. I bless you all, My brothers and sisters.

Walk today as children of the light, redeemed in My blood and filled with the Holy Spirit. Accept the cross that is yours and allow Me to help you carry it.

Remember My grace is sufficient for you. Do not rely on your own power to do anything or to oppose the evil one. Humble yourself and call upon Me and I will help you. Without Me you cannot do anything good.

My sacrifice on the cross was necessary for your salvation. Sin had blocked your entrance into heaven and your life on earth was lived in darkness. I paid the supreme sacrifice for your sins by My death on the cross. I won for you eternal life, which you receive if you believe in Me and commit yourself completely to Me and repent of your sins.

If you love Me, I will come every day to live in your heart together with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Invite us and we will come and live in you. Come and keep us company by spending time with us every day.

We want you as a friend who visits us regularly. We will renew you completely and enlighten your path. WE LOVE YOU.”

CHINA DECEASED RELATIVESGod Still Uses Dreams and Visions to Speak to You, but There’s a Catch!

God has always desired to communicate with His people. Dreams and visions are perhaps some of the most common ways God has communicated with humankind. The Bible contains more than 50 references to dreams and visions in which God delivered messages.

I pray for you in the Name of Jesus Christ, my dear reader: that you will receive a vision or a dream, which you will know is from the Christian God.

God still speaks today through dreams and visions, but only those who have their hearts and spirits tuned to Him will hear and receive all that God has for them.  It cost nothing to ask from the heart for a vision or dream. Try it and see!

AN EXPERIMENT OF GOD’S TOUCH 2

GOD’S TOUCH

Without expecting anything, simply say, “I love you, Jesus” with your whole heart. Something that was a simple thought experiment can turn into something spectacular. A flood of energy can enter.

It is actually more of an intellectual and psychological strain not to believe in God than to believe: it’s about no hopelessness, not shutting out spirituality and coming to grips with the infinite. Logically, there is some sort of organized principal above or something unexplained but at least accessible to you right now!

 EXPERIMENT OF GOD’S TOUCH

What would happen if you let down your guard and stop resisting Christianity for a little experiment? What if you let Jesus in? Without expecting anything, simply say, “I love you, Jesus” with your whole heart. Someone like you tried this. Something that was a simple thought experiment turned into something spectacular. A flood of energy entered into that person.

You may be at the door, but you are afraid to enter.

Alternatively, you may wish to be more truthful about your relationship with Jesus. You need to build up this love relationship. A relationship means that you have to at least know a little about Jesus. It can start by reading a short biography of Jesus in the gospel of Luke. Later you can promote yourself to the gospel about love: the gospel of John. Now try an experiment that has been successful with other unbelievers.

A relationship means communication both ways. You can start by saying something others have said,”Jesus, if you exist, don’t be coy. You could just show yourself to me.”

What happened?

Immediately, I felt His Presence. I cannot adequately describe this: words fail. It was not a light, but a Person, fully, as if walking beside me, yet not of a man walking, but rather a source of pure light, pure heat: an irradiation of perfect Love, more real than the world around me and therefore tending to blot it out. I did not have to ask, “Are you the Christ?” for I knew this already.                                                                David Warren

 EXPERIMENT OF GOD’S TOUCH

You can classify this as a miracle: a  surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore considered to be the work of a divine source. Do you believe in miracles? Try reading about or visiting Lourdes or Fatima. You will be convinced that miracles do happen.

Once experiencing this connection, the stories and the healing in the Bible become very real: only God could do such things. Suddenly you realize you are reading the Word of God to His people. It is like a light switch that is turned on in your soul. You had been blind and now you can see.

The Mouse’s Search for the Cat

There is a mountain analogy: the roads go up, not down; that man makes the roads, not God; that religion is man’s search for God, not God’s search for man.  C. S. Lewis says this sounds like “the mouse’s search for the cat”.

Confucianism

Christianity is not a system of man’s search for God but a story of God’s search for man.  True religion is not like a cloud of incense wafting up, but it is like a Father’s hand thrust downward to rescue us who are fallen. 

Confusianism

JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU.

EXPERIMENT OF GOD’S TOUCH

“I love you.

You Need to Commit your Life to Me.

Pride is the cause of much destruction and it is the result of many hurts and sufferings of many people. Pride always goes before every sin. It is the cause of division, resentment, jealousy and envy. There are great divisions among Christians today because of pride.

Today there are many churches and they are all claiming to have the truth and yet they are teaching different and opposing doctrine. How necessary it is to keep pride in check!

Think of this truth, My friend, that you have all sinned and are unable to save yourselves by your own efforts. I am your only Savior but I cannot save you without your cooperation. You have to be humble to submit your whole self to Me.

If you accept Me as your Savior, you have to allow Me to teach you through the Church I founded. You need to commit your life to Me and be converted. You will be transformed through Me and I will live in you and you in Me.

It is in living in Me that you will be able to follow My will and one day to be united in Me forever in heaven. Do not let your pride destroy what I want to give you. Come in humility and obedience and you will climb the mountain with Me. I love you.”

The Word of God: came to us from the Bible

In the beginning God made from nothing the heavens and the earth.”                                                                                                           Genesis 1:1

“He made from one blood all nations who live on the earth. He set the times and places where they should live. They were to look for God. Then they might feel after Him and find Him because He is not far from each one of us. It is in Him that we live and move and keep on living.”                                                                                    Acts 17:26-28

 “The heavens are telling of the greatness of God and the great open spaces above show the work of His hands.”             Psalm 19:1

”Lord, You have been the place of comfort for all people of all time. Before the mountains were born, before You gave birth to the earth and the world, forever and ever, You are God.”   Psalm 90:1, 2

“The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’”                        Psalm 14:1

ASTONISHING PREDICTIONS

The BIBLE is divinely inspired by God. How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions of a possible 48 astonishing predictions l have a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17   (100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST be true.

DIVINE OR HUMAN CALIPHS

Here is a passage that comes from a BIBLE:

 “See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and vain deceit, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.” Colossians 2:8

Let’s analyze this more closely:

 See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception [pseudo-intellectual babble], according to the tradition [and musings] of mere men, following the elementary principles of this world, rather than following [the truth—the teachings of] Christ.                                                                  Colossians 2:8

So, one should not accept philosophy of mere speculation and imagination, but of the modest, laborious investigation of facts.

Vain Deceit is, that which is vain and empty, and has no solid foundation, and even deceitful and delusional.

Christianity is not a philosophy, but a relationship with God in Christ TODAYnot knowledge of abstract principles.

How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus. 

GOD’S HEALING ASSURED

 HEALING?

Many Christians have been given the gift of healing and deliverance to be able to deliver away evil spirits influencing  Muslims, which cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress.  This healing and deliverance is successful only in the Name of Jesus Christ: EXPERIMENT OF GOD’S TOUCH

HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?

Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth.

He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those involved in the healing actually feel a complete physical  sense of peace that is unmistakable.

EXPERIMENT OF GOD’S TOUCH

When God heals in this way, He is giving a message to those being healed for a change of heart even without one’s faith. In His wisdom,, He knows faith will be developed. Dreams or visions often accompany this experience especially among non-Christians.

God Still Uses Dreams and Visions to Speak to You, but There’s a Catch!

God has always desired to communicate with His people. Dreams and visions are perhaps some of the most common ways God has communicated with humankind. The Bible contains more than 50 references to dreams and visions in which God delivered messages.

God still speaks today through dreams and visions, but only those who have their hearts and spirits tuned to Him will hear and receive all that God has for them.  It cost nothing to ask from the heart for a vision or dream. Try it and see!

ISN’T ANYTHING POSSIBLE FOR GOD?

Initially Christianity may not be attractive, especially when in their arrogance Christians seem to believe that all non-Christians were doomed to go to hell. Yet, if a non-Christian was judged by God, He would not be judged according to the same standards as a Christian, who would be more accountable because of the privilege of knowing the full truth. The non-Christian will be given in all eventualities some latitude because your God, the Creator, is above all merciful.

Further, how ridiculous it would be to believe that a God would limit Himself to become a human being in the name of Jesus Christ. Other religions had wise men like the Dalai Lama, Guru Nanak or Muhammad, who tried to build ladders up to God, yet this approach seems man-made. Christianity is the reverse: it teaches that God Himself chose to come down to our level in order to bridge the gap. This gives the Bible much more authority: for it is God who speaks in the voice of the Church—“I baptize you …””I forgive you your sins…” “This is My body…”

God’s own revelation to us is far better than anything man could invent on his own. This would be the ultimate truth. Further, wasn’t anything possible for God even though it may appear unbelievable?

LIFE AFTER DEATH: the Final Argument

How did hundreds of people — doctors, airline pilots, bank presidents , tenured professors– who didn’t need to make up wild stories to make money (and would lose professional credibility doing so), come to describe an amazing similar place.

There has never been a sighting of Guru Nanak, Krishna or Moksha in any Near Death Experiences.

God tells Isaiah His Holy City (HEAVEN) will be a place of beauty and joy, with plants and trees, vineyards and fruit, mountains and valleys, where all the creatures finally will live in harmony — as we intuitively know it should be.

Conversing with God is Prayer.  One can make this more of a reality by speaking in terms of weandus, to show that one is united to God daily: “we are one.”  When you have a coffee, you have coffee for two. It is always “we” or “us” who are having coffee.     

“Remember My Presence; do you know how much I desire this meditation upon My Presence? My Presence is also a very important Mystery that most of you seem to forget; meditate on My Presence; children, whom I love with an everlasting love, please Me by remembering My actual Presence; train yourselves by using these words, we, us, you and I, I and you, us; include Me in your activities, in your discussions and in your thoughts; respect My Presence, never forgetting that I am the Holy One; by remembering Me, you will sin less knowing and remembering that I Am with you.”  October 24, 1988

POWER OF PRAYER

“Many of you pray; but your prayers do not reach Me; learn how to pray, let Me feel you; many prayers are spilled on earth, never reaching Me;   You mean lip-service, Lord?   Yes, I mean lip service.”                                                                                                                                             February 19, 1988

Here are the prayers Jesus recommends us to pray daily:

Novena of Confidence to the Sacred Heart

O Lord, Jesus Christ
To Your Most Sacred Heart,
I confide this intention…
(Here mention your request)
Only look upon me
Then do what Your Heart inspires…
Let Your Sacred Heart decide…
I count on It… I trust in It…
I throw myself on Its Mercy…

Lord Jesus! You will not fail me,
Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in Thee.
Sacred Heart of Jesus,
I believe in Thy love for me.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy Kingdom Come.

O Sacred Heart of Jesus,
I have asked for many favors,
but I earnestly implore this one.
Take it, place it in Thy Sacred Heart.
When the Eternal Father sees it covered with Thy Precious Blood,
He will not refuse it.
It will no longer be my prayer but Thine, O Jesus.

O Sacred Heart of Jesus,
I place my trust in Thee,
Let me never be confounded. Amen.

Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel

St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in the day of battle,
be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host,
by the Power of God,
cast into hell Satan and all the other evil spirits,
who prowl through the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

The Memorare of St. Bernard

Remember,
O Most Gracious Virgin Mary
that never was it known
that anyone who fled to Thy protection,
implored Thy help and sought Thy intercession,
was left unaided.

Inspired with this confidence,
I fly unto Thee,
O Virgin of virgins, my Mother!
to Thee I come, before Thee I stand,
sinful and sorrowful.

O Mother of the Word Incarnate!
dislike not my petitions,
But in Thy Mercy,
hear and answer me. Amen.”

JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU.

POWER OF PRAYER

I will Renew you Completely.

“I love you, My friend, who believe with great conviction that I am your Savior and Lord.

You have a thirst for My words, My teachings, and you spend time reading religious and holy books. If you love Me, you will come to know Me and listen to My words especially My words in the Gospels.

When you pray, pray from your heart, I need prayers that come from your heart and not from your lips; do not pray quickly, recollect yourselves and pray slower, looking at Me: I am Present, let your prayers reach Me;

Learn to be in constant prayer, by this I do not mean to have you on your knees endless hours, no, but just in remembering My Presence, you will be in constant prayer; your minds will be lifted towards Me; all that you say, or do, or think will be for Me.

I want you all to renew your love for Me. I make all things new. If you allow Me, I will renew your heart and strengthen your faith.

I wish to renew your minds by removing all that is not of Me. May you be filled with thoughts of lasting value especially about spiritual realities and not just about material things and pleasure.

I predicted My Passion and Death many times while I was on earth. I knew this because of what the Father told Me in prayer. It is very important for you all to pray especially to have this heart to heart prayer with Me.

You have to open your interior faculties in order to be close to Me. Your interior eyes have to be opened so I can show you spiritual realities. Your ears of the heart have to be opened to hear My little voice in your heart. I will speak to your heart if you listen to Me.

Spend time with Me in prayer and I will renew you completely in mind, heart and spirit. Ask and you shall receive. I embrace you all.”

The above messages came to Father Melvin Doucette:

Fr. Melvin Doucette was ordained to the priesthood on and joined the Missionaries of Africa for 29 years in Africa. In contemplative prayer every morning, Fr. Doucette receives by interior locution “messages from heaven” to share with the public.

THE 10 NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCES

NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE

Our Near Death Experiences showed us that God has prepared a future for you filled with more exhilaration and excitement. It will be the most breathtaking beauty, more love and depth with friends and family than you have ever experienced on earth.

Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away …He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Revelation 21:1, 4

How did hundreds of people — doctors, airline pilots, bank presidents , tenured professors– who didn’t need to make up wild stories to make money (and would lose professional credibility doing so),  describe such an amazing similar place.

The prophets like Isaiah were told by God that the new Heaven and new earth will have similarities to the beauty of the present earth, but restored and improved:

“See, I will create
    new heavens and a new earth.
The former things will not be remembered,
    nor will they come to mind.
But be glad and rejoice forever
    in what I will create,
for I will create Jerusalem to be a delight
    and its people a joy.

They will build houses and dwell in them;
    they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit.

Before they call I will answer;
    while they are still speaking I will hear.
 The wolf and the lamb will feed together,
    and the lion will eat straw like the ox,
    and dust will be the serpent’s food.
They will neither harm nor destroy
    on all my holy mountain,”
says the Lord.:”                                            Isaiah 65:17,18;24,25

God tells Isaiah His Holy City will be a place of beauty and joy, with plants and trees, vineyards and fruit, mountains and valleys, where all the creatures finally will live in harmony — as we intuitively know it should be.

A FEELING OF OVERWHELMING LOVE

In 69% of the cases, people who experienced Near Death (NDE) felt that they were in the presence of an overwhelming love in the company of family and friends or other mystical bodies.

“The kind of love I experienced cannot be expressed in words” in an unworldly realm. It is beyond our finite, earthly language.

NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE

1. MENTAL TELEPATHY

There was an ability to communicate with the people or entities through a kind of mental telepathy.  This was reported by 65% of the experiences.

2. GOD

Meeting a figure that appeared to be God or some Divine Being was reported by 56% of experiences. Interestingly, 75% of people who consider themselves atheists reported these divine figures.

3. TREMENDOUS ECSTASY

A tremendous joy of being in this place: free of their bodies and earthly troubles, and in the presence of loving beings. This incredible peace was experienced by 76%. It was a heightened sense of being more alert than normal: no more pain and doubts.

imagine heaven

4. UNLIMITED KNOWLEDGE

Many times (56%) they were in the presence of unlimited knowledge, and sometimes even received some or all of this knowledge, as if the wisdom and secrets of the universe were shared with them (which were lost on returning to earth). Heavenly travel was at the speed of thought.

5. AFTERLIFE LEVELS

They traveled through or were made aware of different levels or realms. Some were even shown – even experienced – what they thought was Hell, a place a great anguish.

6. TOLD NOT READY

Just less than half (46%) of NDE  say that their time in the afterlife came to a kind of barrier where a decision had to be made: to stay in the afterlife or return to life on Earth. They are  reluctant to return, even if they are told they have a mission to complete.  Is it any wonder why they would not want to return to earth.

7. SHOWN THE FUTURE

In 44% of the cases, people were given the knowledge of future events. They could be future world events, or they could be events specific to the life of the person.

8. THE TUNNEL

NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE

The “tunnel of light” has become almost a trademark of the near-death experience for 65% of people. Others feelings include feeling out of the body, rushing toward a mystical brilliant  light, moving rapidly through a passageway or up a staircase.

9. A DEBATE WITHOUT RESOLUTION

Most people who experience the NDE cannot be convinced that what they went through was not real, and it is proof for them that there is life after death.

10. LIFE REVIEW

The review of one’s life was common in 62% of the cases. Some felt like they were witness to every event and detail of their lives. In some cases, a small kindness turned out to be significant.

“For there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known.”                                  Matthew 10:26

In this life review, the person can see what he or she did in life that really matters to God. Ultimately, what matters to God is how we treat others. Do we love unconditionally the way God loves us? Are we living a life for ourselves, fulfilling our desires but maybe not what God wants for us, OR are we living a life that allows God’s will to be done. That is, are we living a life for His purpose or ours?

Paul had a Near Death Experience:

Awaiting the New Body

“1For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, because when we are clothed, we will not be found naked. For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life.

We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So we make it our goal to please Him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it                                                                                                                               2 Corinthians 5:1-4; 8-9

Don’t wait for your life review to live for what matters!Near Death Experience
The message is clear: Live now for what really matters!

CAN RELATIVES IN HEAVEN HEAR OUR PRAYERS? 2

CAN SAINTS IN HEAVEN HEAR OUR PRAYERS?

 “In heaven the elders and angels offer up the prayers of the saints [on earth] as incense before the throne of God”                                                                                                                                                      Revelation 5:8; 8:3-4

 This implies that the angels and elders (holy Christians now in heaven) hear the prayers of every Christian on earth, and join their prayer now with ours: they can hear our prayers.

We can indeed ask the angels and saints for their prayers. They can hear us and respond to us by praying for us. This is not idolatry. Idolatry would only occur if one believed that a saint or angel would give you something that our Lord would not.      

God provides everything we need for us to be transformed into the image of Christ in this life.

If we die in the state of grace but before we have been fully conformed to the image of Christ, purgatory will complete that process for us.  The process of purgatory has been compared to the refiners touch. The souls of our loved ones must be saved by prayer from torments .

RELATIVES HEAVEN PRAYERS

LOST IN PURGATORY: the Immortal Soul

“Then in anger his master handed him over to the torturers until he should pay back the whole debt. So will my heavenly Father do to you, unless each of you forgives his brother from his heart.”                                                                                                              Matthew 18: 34,35

Doesn’t that sound like a form of purgatory to you: until he should pay back the whole debt.”?

Message from a soul in Purgatory to a mystic:                                                         “I know when you pray for me, and it is the same with all of the other souls here in Purgatory. Very few of us here get any prayers; the majority of us are totally abandoned, with no thought or prayers offered for us from those on earth Continue to pray; I will repay you later on. When I am released you will see that I will do far more for you than you have ever done for me.”

YOUR LOVED ONES

As we get older, the majority of those we love best are dead. What sort of intercourse with God could we have, if what we love best were not important to Him?                                                            C.S. Lewis

So where does that leave your loved one? You probably never even considered the possibility of purgatory: no thought, no prayers, no hope. You may even have been taught that there is no purgatory, because it has not been mentioned specifically by name in the Bible.

RELATIVES HEAVEN PRAYERS

YOUR LOVED ONES ARE TOTALLY HELPLESS.

But your loved ones could be in purgatory and they can no longer do anything for themselves; they are totally helpless. If the living does not pray for them; they are totally abandoned. Therefore, it is very important to realize the immense power and the incredible power that each one of us has in our hands to relieve your loved ones who suffer.

RELATIVES HEAVEN PRAYERS

KNOWING HOW TO PRAY

Most people who do not pray simply do not know how to begin. Others don’t pray because they think that the problems are too small to worry God. Still others feel that they have no right to pray because of their sins that disqualify them.

The people in your life need you to be a person of thoughtfully intense and habitual prayer. Pray for those whose lives have crossed yours.

PRAYING FOR OTHERS WHO ARE LIVING NOW

When you offer to pray for someone, simply tell them that you have been praying for them and their hearts will begin to change. “I never made more progress in my spiritual life, as when I began to devote myself to praying for others.”                              St. Theresa of Avila

JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU.

RELATIVES HEAVEN PRAYERS

Prayer is of the Utmost Importance.

“Come near to me, I embrace you for I love you.

So few people pray these days.  Many go for days without saying a prayer, without lifting their hearts and minds to Me.  They are pre-occupied with the things of the world such as money and pleasure, but neglect the things of the spirit. They care little for their Creator or their Redeemer.

Yet, prayer is of the utmost importance for Christians. You cannot be a Christian if you do not pray. I’ve taught you this excellent prayer, contemplative prayer, which I favor so much. 

Most people can pray in this way if they apply themselves. I give the grace of contemplative prayer to all who ask with faith. Do you believe Me? 

I am calling you, My dear friend, to begin by spending time with Me.  I will lead you up the mountain for I want a close relationship with you. I will soften your heart and empty it of pride, resentment, and hurts. You must desire this relationship with me and submit yourself completely with Me. My grace is there for you if you wish to cooperate with it.

Come and live in my heart and remember I love you. I am ready to warm your cold heart. I am waiting for you today.                                            I bless you with My peace.”

GOD’S HEALING ASSURED 2

HEALING FROM GOD’S MERCY 

 God in His mercy has decreed blessing for us by sending Christ to take the curse of disease and sickness from us and bring healing.

“He himself bore our sins” in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by His wounds you have been healed.”                                                                                  1 Peter 2:24

These are the exact words that a Divine Healer say when they lay hands on someone for healing: IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST AND BY HIS WOUNDS, YOU (NAME) ARE HEALED OF (AFFLICTION). 

This is assured for any affliction even cancer and any addiction.  The spirit world knows no limitation: long distance healing is also assured.

This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah: He took up our infirmities and bore our diseases.”      Matthew 8:17 

Jesus used the authority of the Father given to Christ over heaven and earth Matthew. 28:18, to “pray over” James 5:14 the sick and command the enemy to go. “Whatever you ask in My Name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.”If you ask Me anything in My Name, I will do it.”                                           John 14:14

MERCY HEALING

Some Christians pray for healing as if asking for a favor from God. In seeking healing we are not to ask God for a favor; instead, we are to glorify the Father by expecting the justice due us as a result of Christ’s awesome work for us… And we will receive it. Quit begging. Quit asking for a favor – expect God’s mercy.

ST. FAUSTINA

Words of Jesus to St. Faustina:I have opened My Heart as a living fountain of mercy. Let all souls draw life from it. Let them approach this sea of mercy with great trust. Sinners will attain justification, and the just will be confirmed in good“.                                      Diary 1520

Healing Mercy

Faith or Physician?

The justification for relying on faith healing over conventional medicine comes from a belief that turning to man is diametrically opposed to turning to God. In other words, you can either turn to God for help, or you can turn to man for help – but not both. “It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.”Psalm 118:8

Jesus Christ said, “Those who are well do not need a physician, but those who are sick” Luke 5:31 Christ doesn’t give so much as a hint at disapproval of physicians.

God wants us to examine any health problem and make wise decisions, while looking to Him to lead and guide us in those decisions. That is what God expects us to do in all aspects of this life “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”.                                                                                              Proverbs 3:5-6

In any decision of any consequence we have to make, it should be our way of life and our habit to go to God for help and wisdom — and this applies when seeking medical attention or health advice for illness as well as in any other aspect of life.

When we submit ourselves to Christ, the heart is united with His heart, the will is merged in His will, the mind becomes one with His mind, the thoughts are brought into captivity to Him; we live His life. This is what it means to be “clothed with the garment of His righteousness”.                                                                                          Isaiah 61:10

Ten Scripture Verses On Healing

Healing Authority

Romans 10 tells us that faith comes from hearing and hearing from the word of Christ. To help us believe God for healing ourselves, our friends and our families it helps to have a good grasp of the Scriptures concerning healing.

The following Scriptures are condensed enough to be printed and folded, carried around and re-read.

GOD’S HEALING

  1. If My people who are called by My Name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.                                                                                                                  2 Chronicles 7:14
  2. O LORD my God, I cried out to You, And You healed me.                                                                                                                                                     Psalms 30:2                                                                                                                                                 
  3.  Bless the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His                           holy Name!                                                                                                                Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits:                        Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases,                  Who redeems your life from destruction,                                                              Who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies.                                                                                                                                        Psalms 103:1-4
  4. He heals the broken-hearted And binds up their wounds.                                                                                                                                             Psalms 147: 3       
  5. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.                                                                         Isaiah 53:5
  6. The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, Because the LORD has anointed Me: To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the broken-hearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound.                                                                                                                         Isaiah 61:1                                                                                                 
  7. And when He had called His twelve disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease.                                               Matthew 10:1
  8. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.                                      Matthew 10:8
  9.  And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God.                                                        Luke 17:15
  10. And He said to her, “…your faith has made you well. Go in peace.”                                                                                                                                     Luke 8:48

The Expert who can Repair & Renew any Person

“I love you.

I am showing you a broken cup. As you can see, it is no good for anything. It is only fit for the rubbish heap.

GOD HEALING

However, if it was repaired by an expert, it could be used again as if it was new. This cup can be you or any person who has sinned and turned away from Me.

You are damaged and unable to accomplish what you are supposed to do. You have brought this situation upon yourself when you refuse to follow the commandments of God. There is, though, a Master Craftsman who can repair the damage.

I am that Expert who can repair and renew any person whom sin has damaged. Come to Me, My brother and sister, and repent of your sins and I will restore you to your greatness as a child of the Father. As the craftsman can repair the broken cup so that it can be useful again, I too can repair your brokenness and fill you with joy and peace. I can repair the relationships which your acts have severed. The sense of loss can be restored with the sense of belonging to the household of the Father.

GOD HEALING

My friend, come to Me with repentance in your heart and I will restore you to your exalted place as the beloved of the Father and My dear brother or sister. I love you.”

AMAZING PRAYER 2

WE CAN LET GOD TOUCH OTHERS

Prayer is also part of social involvement. One should always be embedded in the life of the community.  Prayer develops a compassionate heart.  The joy that compassion brings is one of the best kept secrets of humanity. To pray for others is to make them part of ourselves and our concerns.  Prayer allows us to give up all that divides us from others so that we can let God touch them in us.

We learn that we are not the boss of our life, but that God wants to lead our life into green pastures. We learn to discover that God plays a role in our lives, an all-determining role, for the salvation and healing of ourselves and the world.

Prayer without action is meaningless.  Vocation means “to call”. God is always active in our lives. He always calls; he always asks us to take up our crosses and follow Him. 

power prayer jeremiah

Can anyone hide themselves in secret places so I shall not see them?  Am I only a God nearby,” declares the Lord, “and not a God far away? Who can hide in secret places so that I cannot see them?”declares the Lord. Do not I fill heaven and earth?” declares the Lord.”                                                                                       Jeremiah 23:23,24

  Simply get to know God by contemplating His attributes every day. When you call out to Him,       you won’t get voice mail.

Pray and Persevere in Prayer

“There are times in life when the soul finds comfort only in profound prayer. Would that souls knew how to persevere in prayer at such times. This is very important.”                      Diary 860

 It was only Saint Faustina to whom Jesus gave explicit instructions to write His words regarding the new devotion that He wished to establish in the world. This diary is an actual record of Jesus’ words to St. Faustina.

Diary St. Faustina prayer

Let the soul be aware that, in order to pray and persevere in prayer, one must arm oneself with patience and cope bravely with exterior and interior difficulties. The interior difficulties are discouragement, dryness, heaviness of spirit and temptations. The exterior difficulties are human respect and time; one must observe the time set apart for prayer.                                                                                                                  Diary 147

Knowing how to pray with skill can change the atmosphere. There are people who pray for their brother for 20 to 30 years without results. You will say that he doesn’t listen to you, but God knows who your brother will listen to, and He will send that person to talk to your brother.

If you have been praying for your brother, there is nothing wrong with him except the devil.

“The god of this world [Satan] has blinded the minds of the unbelieving to prevent them from seeing the illuminating light of the gospel of the glory of Christ”                                          2 Corinthians 4:4

Now you know the problem isn’t your brother it’s the devil! You must bind the devil out of your brother’s way.  This can be  a long distance prayer over the phone. The Spiritual World has no human boundaries.

TO ENTER GATE OF HEAVEN 2

 WHAT CAN YOU SAY TO ENTER HEAVEN?

One of the greatest gifts we can offer our family and friends is helping them to die well. We have to sit quietly with them and say: “Do not be afraid … I love you, God loves you … it’s time for you to go in peace. … I won’t cling to you any longer … I set you free to go home … go gently, go with my love.” It is the greatest gift that you can give.

DEATH BETTER

When Jesus died he said: “Father, into your hands I commit My Spirit”. Luke 23:46 It is good to repeat these words often with our dying friends. 

WHAT IS THE NEXT STEP?

“The LORD is my Shepherd; I shall not want … and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD for years to come.”                          Psalms 23:1, 6

 Death frees us from the boundaries of chronology and brings us into God’s “time,” which is timeless. There is no “past,” “present,” or “future.” 

ONE OF THE GREATEST POEMS EVER WRITTEN

‘Holy Sonnet 10: Death, Be Not Proud‘ by John Donne (1572-1631)

Death, be not proud, though some have called you
Mighty and dreadful; for you art not so;
For those whom you think, you do overthrow
Die not, poor Death, nor yet can you kill me.
From rest and sleep, which but your pictures be,
Much pleasure; then from thee much more must flow,
And soon our best men with you do go,
Rest of their bones, and soul’s delivery.
You art slave to fate, chance, kings, and desperate men,
And do with poison, war, and sickness dwell,
And poppy or charms can make us sleep as well
And better than your stroke; why swell you then?
One short sleep past, we wake eternally
And death shall be no more; Death, you shalt die.

Death has always been a subject that’s instilled people with terror and despair, yet this poem provides us with hope.

When he says “From rest and sleep, which but your pictures be, / Much pleasure,” he compares death to being asleep, making it sound a lot less terrifying. Similarly, when he saysOne short sleep past, we wake eternally / And death shall be no more, he explains that if one truly believes in the eternal life of the soul, then death is nothing but a blessing.  

Death is so ever-present in our lives, and the fear of death is undoubtedly a natural instinct. 

HOW DO IT GET INTO HEAVEN?

GATE TO HEAVENGATE TO HEAVEN

Let me ask you a question: when you die, where will your soul go? Heaven? Hell? Nowhere? Not sure?

I know where my soul will go when I die. Wouldn’t you like to be absolutely 100% sure where yours will go? If you could get into the gate to heaven when you die, wouldn’t you do whatever it takes to be sure that that is where your soul is going?

Do you know what signs Jesus will be looking for to see if He recognizes you as one of His own?

  1. Have you sinned? Don’t think so? Ever told a lie, even a little white lie? Ever stolen something, even just a penny? Have you ever known it was right to do something, and then not done it?

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23.  You may be a good person, but even sinning just once (which we all have) we still fall short of the Glory of God, because God is without sin.

GATE TO HEAVEN

    2. We still have hope: Now, we know that God isn’t going to let sin into heaven.  But we just established that every single person on earth has sinned, this isn’t looking so good for you and me to get into heaven is it? But luckily for us, there’s good news.

“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”                                                     Romans 6:23

GATE TO HEAVEN

     3. You might be saying to yourself, “I don’t know how to accept Jesus as my savior or how to confess my sins.”

Have no fear. If you are ready today to accept Jesus Christ as your savior, then pray with me by following the prayer below:

“Jesus, I know that I’m a sinner and that I need Your help to save my soul. I know that you are the Son of God, and I want to thank you for dying on the cross for me so that I don’t have to pay for my sins, and so that I can have eternal life through you. Please come into my heart Lord and save me. Please forgive me for my sins and help me to repent and be a better person for You. I love You, Lord, and thank You for Your sacrifice. In Your name Lord, amen.”

    4.  There is no guilt and no reason to feel guilty. The Bible says we are sinners by nature. God does not expect us to feel guilty. What he does want us to feel is love for Him. He wants us to be with us in heaven, which is why we must accept his Son.

    5.  Now why would God feel it is necessary to be saved? What is there to be saved from? Hell. Where is the opposite of hell after you die? Heaven. You are being saved from Hell.

    6.  After we are saved, there is a change that takes place within us… we should want to do things to please God, not disappoint Him. God does not expect you to lead a perfect life… he doesn’t. But when you are saved, there is a spiritual “rebirth”.

GATE TO HEAVEN

 What are you doing today to prepare for that crucial moment when time has run out?

But we come from God and belong to God…”                            1 John 4:4

‘”In my Father’s house are many mansions.”                           John 14:2-3 

When you stand at the gate of heaven and God says, “Why should I let you in?” What answer will you give?

“I lived a good life.” “I gave money to good causes.”    “We’re happy for you, but you weren’t good enough.”

You will know the answer before you get there and you can know for sure that heaven’s gate will open for you. How?

Very simple. 

“If you say with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved from the punishment of sin.”                                                                    Romans 10:9

Gate to Heaven

The fact that there’s a highway to hell and only a stairway to heaven says a lot about anticipated traffic numbers.  

JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU.

Gate to Heaven

The Road to Heaven

“I love you.

I’m showing you two roads that disappear far in the west where the sun sets.Gate to Heaven

One is a pleasure to travel on. It is straight, smooth and wide.  Many are traveling that road but it only leads to death and emptiness.  None of My friends travel along that road.

Then there is another road with sharp turns, water and mud in places and it is narrow here and there. At the end of this road one finds life, the fullness of life. This is the road I follow and I lead all My friends along it.

The first road is the way of the world filled with pleasure, the following of one’s own will and the false notion that with money one can buy everything one needs. Their companion is the evil one. At the end of such a life there is only death and despair because they will not attain to eternal life. 

However, those traveling on the other road will have sufferings and trials. They will make an effort to follow God’s will instead of their own.

I will lead them and bring them to life and eternal happiness forever in heaven. My dear friend, do not be afraid of trials and suffering but face them with Me at your side.

May your heart be attuned to Mine. Come and walk with Me in deep friendship every day of your life. I bless you all.”

The above messages came to Father Melvin Doucette:

Fr. Melvin Doucette was ordained to the priesthood on and joined the Missionaries of Africa for 29 years in Africa. In contemplative prayer every morning, Fr. Doucette receives by interior locution “messages from heaven” to share with the public.

Why Pray? 2

WHY PRAY?
Why Pray

God wills us to pray in order to develop an incredible fellowship with Him. In fact, we are all wired for this. Why pray? As  St. Augustine once said, “You have made us for Yourself; and our hearts are restless until they find their rest in you.

The vast company of faithful in other world religions testify that prayer makes a tremendous difference in one’s life. Most of us cannot function either well  or long without prayer.Why Pray

Contemporary man has rediscovered the sacred, even if he does not always know how to identify it. Is man truly capable of knowing something beyond what he sees with his eyes or hears with his ears?

Man recognizes himself as an ethical being, capable of acting according to criteria of good and evil, and not only those of profit and pleasure. He also recognizes himself as a spiritual being, capable of putting himself in contact with God.  

Prayer is the first verification of such a reality. That is how a conversation begins with your Creator.

 Of course, there are those who say “I believe in Jesus Christ”, but they don’t affect the way they live. The answer is not that we now have to add hard work to our faith; rather, we haven’t truly understood or believed in Jesus at all.

prayer

Try reading Psalm 23 for three weeks. It begins with, “The Lord is my Shepherd… ” and ends with, “I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” You will notice the difference. This is a prayer of affirmation — not a prayer of petition, asking for favors. It will move you so much, that you will want to make it part of your daily spiritual life from now on.

Have you ever directed your prayers inwardly rather than outwardly to the God -in-the-sky?

“Pray as if you were to die tomorrow.”                                 Benjamin Franklin

Most of our lives our prayers lack genuine honesty and depth or passion. We sometimes pray in an automated mode.

god proof

 “And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him. ”  Matthew 6:7-8

The Psalms are a supreme way of real praying. They help us fulfill a longing for a contact with the Divine Will of God– filled with honesty and flowing from the very core of our being.  The ultimate goal is to feel totally one with everything — liberated and enlightened with your Divine Creator. This is the goal of all major faiths in the world: a union with God and all creation.

All the faiths, with the exception of Buddhism, teach that there is a God who is not a “Person” who has created the cosmos.  It is possible to know and experience this personal Spiritual Source and it is our entire purpose in life to do so. These similarities are astounding even though there are differences: St. Paul’s idea of God-union was different from all other faiths: he insisted that Christ was the sole mediator of union with God. Our goal of being one with the Creator goes further: we ultimately all wish to share in the final bliss called heaven as fellow-heirs with God Himself, whom we will meet face to face.

While praying for others, imagine God’s Light of pure love surrounding your friend or relative — dazzling and protective. Visualize how he or she is being raised up and held by you in the light — asking for his or her health to be restored. If you yourself are suffering from fear or anxiety, you can also visualize how God’s power and strength are with you while you pray with eyes of faith knowing that there are forces of energy on your side at those moments. You eventually come to the realization that you are forced to ” let go and let God” because it is too much for you. “For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.”                                                                                         Timothy 1:7 

Why Pray

Looking back at your life, you will acknowledge how any apparent evil has become good. Even better, “What am I most thankful to God for at this exact moment in time?”

Let us not forget the prayers of praise and thanksgiving. If you forget about your own Creator, you will quickly replace Him with a host of other forms of worship:  sports, sex, electronic devices, etc.

One prays with the body as well as with the soul — whether it is on your knees or with raised hands.  The act of chanting or singing stimulates glands and organs of your body.

“Teach us to pray”

Here is what St. Augustine said about teaching us to pray:

My brethren, do you imagine God is ignorant of what you need? He who knows our distress foreknows our desires also. That is why, in teaching them the Our Father, the Lord counseled his disciples not to use many words: “When you pray, do not keep babbling because your Father knows what you need before you ask him” Matthew 6, 7-8. If our Father already knows what we need, why tell him about it even in few words?… If you know about it, Lord, do we even need to pray?

However, he who says to us here: “Do not use many words in your prayers” says to us elsewhere: “Ask and you will receive”, and so that we don’t think this is said casually, he adds: “Seek and you will find”, and so that we don’t think this to be a mere figure of speech, see how he concludes: “Knock and it will be opened to you”        Matthew 7,7

So what he wants is for you to begin by asking so as to receive, to set yourself to seeking in order to find and not to stop knocking so as to enter in the end… Why ask? Why seek? Why knock? Why weary ourselves with praying, seeking, knocking as though we had to inform him who already knows it all? We even read elsewhere:  “Pray always without becoming weary”         Luke 18,1

Well, to clear up this mystery, ask, seek, knock! If He disguises this mystery it is because He wants to move you to seek and find the explanation for yourself. We should all encourage ourselves to pray.

JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU.

We Live in your Hearts if you Open them to us.

“I love you.

My dear friend, yes we live in your heart if you open them to us. Is there a greater gift than to receive your God in your heart? We love you and make our home in you. It is my joy to come and live in you.

All you need to do is to invite us in and repent of all your sins. Believe the words of the Gospel of John concerning this teaching which is called the Indwelling.

Come often to join us in your heart by praise and adoration. If you are joined with us, We will give you the great gift of peace. Your heart will be that little corner of heaven where joy will reign always.

If you truly love Me, you would be faithful to Me every day. My friends do not compromise with what is opposed to Me. Get rid of all doubts and accept Me with all your heart. If your heart is divided, you cannot advance and My grace in you is useless. May your faith be strong to believe that I am alive and that I love you.

Commit your whole life to Me and you will live in the power of the Holy Spirit. Be constant in prayer so that our relationship may grow and you will live in the light. I cherish all My faithful friends for I know I can count on them to carry out My will. They will not run away when it is difficult but they will rely on My grace to live through these difficult days.

Be on the watch though for temptations so that you do not fall into sin. Remain close to the Father, the Holy Spirit and me. In heaven, you will be perfectly united with us forever.

Today be a home for Us and show Us your love. We bless you with our love.”
