Friday, August 3, 2012:
Jesus said: “My son, you are reading in Jeremiah how he was chastising the people for their sins, and God would bring punishment upon the Israelites if they did not change their ways. (Jeremiah 26:1-10) The people even threatened to kill him until he explained that it was God who told him to speak these words. He was later killed as were many of the prophets with similar words. The Israelites did not want to hear the chastising words of the prophets. Israel was later conquered and forced into the Babylonian Exile for seventy years. Even in today’s world, the words of My prophets are also not being heeded, and My punishment will come against America because the people are not repenting of their sins. Just as the people killed the prophets of old, the people of today will also reject your words, and you will have to go into hiding for fear of your life as well. These sinful people do not want to change their ways, and they resent prophets telling them what to do. As a result of this resentment and the coming evil tribulation, My prophets will also be in danger of losing their lives for preaching what I have given them. Even if My prophets are martyred, it is more important to carry on their mission of warning souls to repent and be converted to faith in Me. Rejoice in your mission to save souls.”

Jesus said: “My people, there are many prophecies in the Old Testament that spoke of the promise of a Messiah sent by God. I told the people that I was the Messiah pointed out by St. John the Baptist when he called Me the ‘Lamb of God’. Still the people did not want to accept Me. Instead, they said that I was a blasphemer, and they crucified Me on the cross. My coming to earth was a fulfillment of the Old Testament. I did not come to change the law, but to fulfill it. I died so all of mankind could be freed of their sins, and I brought salvation to everyone in My sacrifice. I have left you with My Eucharistic gift of My Body and Blood under the appearances of bread and wine. I am with you always in My consecrated Hosts in My tabernacle. I thank you for coming to this Divine Mercy Holy Hour, and My Benediction to recite My Divine praises.”
