From St Paul: ‘ 5 Don’t you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? 6 And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. 7 For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way‘
For over fifty years I’ve lived in London. During December and January it can get windy. I’ve never heard the wind howl and whistle accept for two occasions. One was December 2019/January 2020 before the widespread outbreak of Covid. Also at this time there was tension between Iran and USA .War was diverted due to prayer and sacrifice of allocated suffering souls across the world. I believe this howling is a battle in the unseen world manifesting. The wind has been howling and whistling again tonight.
Last Saturday I was sitting on the bus and was wondering about Benedict hoping he would be recovering. Then the very sad news came through that he had died. Over last weekend I felt so sad for him like millions of Catholics around the world. Due to his frailty he became a fading symbol of truth and tradition. The tears I cried gave me some realisation that I hadn’t had before. His role for the last 9 years had become Christ like in its suffering. Similarly Padre Pio obediently suffered at the hands of the hierarchy of the church he loved. Benedicts suffering we would not know about and can only guess the form it took but I know for sure he was suffering. Jesus told my wife in 2019 that he was suffering tremendously/he needed prayer and that he would be martyred. Now this does not appear to be the case as it is presented in the news. I believe Bergoglio has the power to be protected by the media as well as control activities within the walls of the Vatican. After all He is the head of state.
Dr Taylor Marshall has touched on something which I believe is inspired from Heaven. This is that Benedict was the Katechon. The Katechon is mentioned in Thessalonians as the force or individual who would ‘restrain’ the AC. Once this was released there would only be the prayers of the remnant to mitigate or block. I know that someone had mentioned that St Joseph would be the Katechon from Heaven. I’m not sure who had mentioned this. Its interesting to mention that Benedict’s real first name was Joseph.
This brings me on to the issue of suffering. I believe Benedict willingly took suffering upon himself and was ultimately martyred. I believe now Jesus is distributing this suffering amongst the remnant. I believe this suffering would be to enrich and change the Remnant by suffering. Much like when glass is made only possible by fire. Parts of the personality are shifted around then removed causing a struggle within the individual as they are forced to embrace humility. Resisting the cross you’ve been given will only cause more pain and even boiling anger.
For me it started on the 31st December. I get waves of intense suffering then it goes then comes back. I had this December 2019 for three months. I believe it’s a portion of Jesus suffering. It’s easy to overlook the psychological suffering Our Lord endured and still does because of the physical wounds we associate with his passion.
Jesus suffers right now because of two reasons:
1 People have turned away from him and turn towards sin instead
2 Abuses against the Eucharist which are intensified now and are about to worsen.
When Jesus first spoke to my wife he kept mentioning his pain and suffering. We didn’t understand at the time. It was like a person locked out in the rain with nowhere to rest and everyone was ignoring him. Awful for Our Lord and he feels this now.
Maybe Benedict being taken now could signify a new zenith in the abuses towards Jesus’s body in Eucharist. I’m sure there is a link there.
In conversation with someone recently they asked me formally ‘ are you looking forward to Christmas’.I mentioned it would be nice to relax at home but I also said that most people ignore what Christmas really means . I tried to use a symbolic example for this person to understand. I said’ imagine if there was a big party held in your honour but for some reason you were forbidden to attend the celebrations and the organisers of the party made sure everyone never mentioned your name. On top of this the party goes ahead and everyone is having ‘fun’ This person had never thought of it that way.
Jesus is locked out from his own birthday celebrations. His name forbidden.
30It will be just like that on the day the Son of Man is revealed. 31On that day, let no one on the housetop come down to retrieve his possessions. Likewise, let no one in the field return for anything he has left behind. 32Remember Lot’s wife! 33Whoever tries to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life will preserve it. 34I tell you, on that night two people will be in one bed: One will be taken and the other left. 35Two women will be grinding grain together: One will be taken and the other left.”e
It occured to me today the probable prophetic significance of this. At Mass it’s mainly a wealthy and elderly laity influencing the priest .In some cases they push the culture of fear to block others from receiving the Eucharist on the tongue from a priest. My wife and I are allowed to receive on the tongue from the priest but are told to come along at the end. ‘The last will be first’. We are not seeking to save our physical lives but nourish our souls with the blessed body of our lord Jesus. Fear should not be in the house of God. Jesus wants to feed his children as they should be fed. The wrong Catholics are first in line at the moment. They have their mortality, family legacy and money to worry about. Most covid mortalities are in the over 70s.
These fearful and influential Catholics have a similar angst that the secular apocolyptic eco protestors have. They worry about their physical death and not the soul. They worry about their genetic legacy.
Jesus was talking about the coming of the kingdom when he mentioned those who seek to save their lives will lose it.
Since a few weeks ago my wife and I wake up in the night .We pray rosaries and divine mercies then go back to sleep. I believe Jesus is requesting this for the time we are in. Most spiritual experiences occur when I’ve increased my prayer. Earlier this month I had a vision which I have been meaning to write about but I’ve only found the time to do so now.
There are types of dreams; some are psychological dreams or spiritual dreams. Psychological dreams are made up of our hopes fears and relationships. These are jumbled up in a washing machine of formed experiences. Then there are spiritual dreams occurring due to a spiritual receptivity because of prayer or a gift.
This vision I had was after a psychological dream and as usual it was very brief. These experiences are brief but are loaded with a timed unpacking as the experience starts to make sense over time. I think this is a’ knowledge’ attached to the vision.
In the vision I stood inside a cave and could see an opening in front of me. Around me was the muttering complaining and suspicion in words of the disciples about Judas. The words intimated that he couldn’t be trusted and that he was a danger to them all potentially. Jesus was there but his back was to me and he was facing the mouth opening of the cave which showed daylight before him. I didn’t see Jesus’s face but I knew it was him. All of a sudden Judas ran to the opening of the cave from the outside. It was like he was running to see them all to tell them something. He was out of breath and excitable talking very quickly. Suddenly Jesus put his thumb or hand on his forehead. This instantly calmed him. His dropped to his knees in ecstasy and reverence. Jesus was loving towards him as he was to everyone not having the human discriminate emotions that we all suffer from as fallen humans. Judas was thin with a beard about 5ft 5. Jesus was much taller as represented in the Turin shroud. Judas slightly resembled some pictures seen of Jesus.
I have reflected in what this all means. Simply I think it means that Jesus of course knew Judas’s eventual role but he still loved him and carried on displaying the love despite the disciples mentioning their suspicions. Similarly when Jesus was nailed to the cross he prayed with love, his love increased despite the terrible suffering.The cave must have been some hideout in the last days leading up to the passion. It must have been a difficult time
The pre frontal cortex is situated on the flat front of the forehead. Its where the personality and wiring of the brain intersect. For the 144,000 this is where the name of God is written on the forehead. I have this sensation on my forehead during prayer and at mass. So this feeling of being calmed I have experienced. It starts as a subtle peace and then at times can cover the whole forehead.
Maybe this was a common event in Jesus healing ministry where he would calmly approach an agitated excitable person and calm their personality by touching their forehead.
Attached a picture of Jesus by Rembrandt but this is the closest example I could find of the resemblance of Judas.
