Thursday, March 19, 2009: (St. Joseph’s Day)

Jesus said: “My people, My foster father, St. Joseph, does not have any words recorded in the Gospels, but surely he had words of love for Me and My Blessed Mother every day that we were together. He was a loving and endearing father, and he provided for us while he was alive. The vision of St. Joseph’s dream was a warning to him for the need to leave for Egypt because Herod was about to declare a decree that all the male children under two would be killed in and around Bethlehem. (Matt. 2:13-23) This warning of an angel is how My faithful are also going to be alerted when it will be the time to go to My refuges before the evil ones will come searching for you in your homes. The angel led St. Joseph, My Blessed Mother, and Myself to a place to stay in Egypt for protection. Later, after Herod died, the angel again warned St. Joseph when it was safe to come back to Nazareth. Your guardian angels will lead you with a sign, just like St. Joseph was led, so you will find the nearest refuge for your protection. Rejoice that your angels are always watching over you. Those, who do not heed this warning of going to My refuges, will risk the chance of being captured at your house and then martyred at the detention centers.”
Prayer Group:
Josyp said: “John, I am happy to have helped you with your book when I volunteered to paint pictures for your mission. Remember the cover of your book as a gift from me. I thank you for our friendship and all that you did to help me. I wish Carol well and all of your prayer group. Thank you for your witness of My artwork that you displayed. Give a word of encouragement to Sam and my children and friends. I will be praying for all of you. If you would be so kind to bring some donations for the funeral to help my family, it would be helpful, understood?”
Jesus said: “My people, I am very grateful to Steve in the beautiful portrayal of St. Padre Pio and his woodcarving with painting. It is a great inspiration for all who see this carving. I love the picture from Mary depicting the crowning of thorns during this Lenten time. Thank you for the suffering Crucifix that was placed on the altar and I thank you for displaying Josyp’s many pictures of Me, My Blessed Mother, the saints and the angels. The relics and the statues also accent My altar for a beautiful time of Adoration and prayer.”
Jesus said: “My people, today you are celebrating the feast day of St. Joseph, My foster father. This vision of where I was born in Bethlehem is a tribute to St. Joseph for bringing My Blessed Mother who was pregnant with Me to Bethlehem. My father had to suffer in not being able to find a better place than this cave of a barn for My birth. It was good that I was born of humble surroundings because I came to help the poor and poor sinners. Pray to St. Joseph to help you in providing for your living conditions.”
Jesus said: “My people, it is appropriate that you have the Easter Candle at your funerals because I am the Resurrection and the Life. You see this candle at your birth when you are baptized into the faith, and you see this candle at your death as you leave this life. It is very hard to suffer the loss of a loved one, especially for a spouse. After a proper time of mourning, it is consoling to know that your loved one is in My hands. Those, who led good lives, may need some purification in purgatory, but they are promised one day to be with Me in heaven as one of My saints. All of you are struggling through this life to one day receive your crown of sainthood.”
Jesus said: “My people, you are seeing mountains of debt accumulating from this attempt by your government to salvage the bad loans that are loading down the taxpayer with years to pay off such a debt. This debt is mortgaging the futures of all of your taxpayers. It could almost be considered a stealing from the future earnings of your children and grandchildren. The truthfulness of all of this spending is that there is not enough money to bail out all of these bad loans. The result of this financial disaster will be lost freedoms and lost control of your government. Pray for My protection at your refuges.”
Jesus said: “My people, you are about half way through your Lenten devotions. I just want to remind you of your intended readings, prayers, and fasting that you promised at the beginning of Lent. Take an inventory of what you are doing now to see if you are keeping faithful to what you intended. If you have fallen lax in any of your devotions, now would be a good time to redirect your efforts toward fulfilling what you wanted to accomplish this Lent. You are doing some extra penances for love of Me so you can improve your spiritual life. Keep up your good work and ask Me to strengthen you in your weak moments.”
Jesus said: “My people, I am happy that you were all thankful to be in attendance at last week’s healing service. It is always beautiful to give witness to prayerful healings of both body and soul. I know there are many believers in My healing powers. Your belief in Me has healed some of your members, and they should be overjoyed to give witness to their healing. Give praise and glory to Me for all healings that were accomplished through My instruments.”
