Thursday, June 17, 2010:
 Jesus said: “My people, the Israelites were fortunate to have the prophets who I sent to keep bringing them back to Me from worshiping pagan gods. When My people worshiped other gods, I would pull back My blessings and allow their enemies to have the better of any wars. Once the people listened to My prophets and changed their lives, they were restored to the Promised Land, as when they were set free after the Babylonian Exile. America at the outset has been a God-fearing people, but there is an evil that is influencing your people to worship material things as gods instead of Me. Again I send prophets, even in this modern world to try and bring My people back to their senses to give Me proper worship in your churches. Unfortunately, your people do not want to listen to My calls to change your sinful lives, and I am again taking away My blessings. Your enemies of the one world people are being allowed to take over your freedoms. Your people only take notice when you face major disasters, but even after such incidents pass, your people return to their sinful ways. In the days of the early Jewish people, the prophets were persecuted and sometimes killed because the people did not want to hear the truth, and they fell away from Me. I have told you that if they persecuted Me, they will persecute My prophets of today. Do not be surprised that My prophets will again be persecuted and killed as the time of tribulation brings about the evil of the Antichrist. My faithful need to trust in Me to protect them, especially at My refuges.”

Prayer Group:
Jesus said: “My people, you know how much I love all of you because I gave up My earthly life so all of you could have salvation from your sins. I am asking you if you would be ready to die for Me if you had to choose between dying for your faith or living in denial of your faith in Me. Giving up your life for your faith is the decision that made saints out of some of My disciples. Knowing that you will be a saint instantly is a consolation for those who are martyred. Even if you are not called to be a martyr, My disciples can die to self so you can give your will over to My Divine Will. These decisions require a full commitment in the heart and soul to the mission that I have given each of you.”

Jesus said: “My people, making a discernment in your vocation takes a commitment of vows if you choose to be married or to be living a religious life. You are constantly praying for priestly vocations because priests are needed for Mass and the sacraments. Living a celibate life takes a bit of sacrifice in not having a wife and family. Living a married life requires doing all that you can to please your wife or husband, and a commitment in bringing up your children in the faith. Even a single life requires a commitment to live your lives in My service. Walk in faith in your vocation and be faithful to your vows of marriage or the religious life.”

Jesus said: “My people, you go through life every day without always thinking if you are ready to meet Me at your judgment every day. When you are faced with a life threatening disease or cancer, you have a different outlook on the value of every day that you are alive. After living into adulthood, it is easy to assume that your life will go on to an old age. Your time on this earth is finite and you should value every day in how you could serve Me and your neighbor. Do not wait until you are near death to appreciate the gift of life that I have given you. Make daily prayer and good deeds a part of your day’s commitment to loving and serving Me.”

Jesus said: “My people, you have been to funerals enough to know how hard it is to mourn for a parent or another relative. When you hear a eulogy, it gives you pause to consider how the deceased has been a part of your life. You can even think of yourself and how you are a part of other people’s lives. Your life on earth is so short, as time passes you by very quickly. All the more reason to live with love in your heart for everyone. Be a good example of a holy life so others can see you as a model to live their own lives. My prayer warriors need to do all that they can to evangelize souls. Saving souls for Me is one of your greatest acts of kindness that you could do for them.”

Jesus said: “My people, at times you desire to go on retreats to break up your day to day work so you can think about how to involve Me more in your life. Retreats give you a chance to freely express your love for Me and maybe plan how to improve your spiritual life. Making more time for Me and helping your neighbor can expand your ways to express your love for Me. Even if you cannot break away for a retreat, take some time during the day to do a mini-retreat in some quiet contemplative prayer.”

Jesus said: “My people, if you can make some time to help people in an organized charity, it will be rewarding to see those whom you have helped. Some people work in hospices, food shelves, hospitals, or prison work. Whatever way, that you could use your talents to help someone out of charity, will be most appreciated by those who you are helping. You remember the joy in the faces of the people when you brought food to them in their need as you were working for your town’s food shelf. Give a part of yourself to others, and it will make you feel fulfilled that you were able to help someone. Every time that you help someone, you are helping Me in that person also.”

Jesus said: “My people, at times you could see power outages or storm damage that made someone’s home unusable. If your neighbor is in need of food, a place to stay, or you are able to help repair a home, then reach out willingly to help that person. Neighbors should be there to help each other face the disasters of life. Helping people until they can get back on their feet is what you are called to do as a loving Christian. Be willing to give time or money to various charities and you will be storing treasures up in heaven.”
