TEACHING OF THOMAS “MAC” SMITH

MARY’S HOUSE

VILLE PLATTE, LOUISIANA

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

 

 

***Teaching from The Blood of the Lamb with Our Lady of the Most Precious Blood (June 27, 2011, pp.404-406).

 

I want to teach you the Armada Rosary. The Armada Rosary is very powerful.

It is in thirty-two countries now, it is going around the world very fast because

there is not much time.

        

         It may seem to you that nothing is happening. My children, I tell you it is the

contrary. There is tremendous battle between heaven and hell, principalities,

Satan is over your soul to destroy the Church. If you stay faithful to My Heart

and the Heart of my Son, in adoration to God the Father, you will have the

fullness of the Holy Spirit and you will have nothing to worry about, nothing.

 

This is all on a spiritual level. It’s not going to guarantee you anything physically. That statement she said first, “I want to teach you the Armanda Rosary.” Well, she’s done that. Now it’s going to spread. Secondly,

 

No matter what happens, do not listen to people about prophesy of what God

         is going to do; no one knows for sure. Some things that He wants to do, like

         the second coming, no one knows but the Father.

 

         The Father has commissioned me to convert to the grace of God, healing and

         teaching, take from your souls fear and uncertainty about the world that sur-

         rounds you. My Son’s Heart can give you the power of love and peach that

         nobody can understand.

 

This is coming to this group particularly. I have been telling you this for the last two months. She says it over and over. She says it in those messages. What does that mean? It means that any time you pray, you are praying for the world. We don’t know any more after that. God the Father is doing something with those prayers. He is empowering them in a special way. So take it very seriously.

 

You can tell only the few show up. The girl that came here that prays all the time didn’t come back. She was very receptive, but she didn’t come back because she wasn’t supposed to. I really believe that God has really limited this group. People will come here but they won’t stay. They may get something out of it, but they won’t stay. The next point is:

 

It is very simple, God loves us. In Baptism He cleanses us; in Confirmation

He pours out the gifts of the Holy Spirit over us; and in Confession, again

His mercy.

 

Of course, all of it leads to the Holy Eucharist, which is everything. That’s the thing that really makes the Church a church. That’s why Mass is important. You get the Eucharist there. Otherwise, it’s in the Word. The Word and the Eucharist are the two things that we have that nobody else has. We have the Word. They have the Word, but we have the Word guaranteed. We have the Eucharist, of course, and nobody else has that.

 

         God is love. Once you experience the love of God through the Holy

         Spirit, your life will never be the same.

 

She is talking about the spiritual uplifting of the Holy Spirit. You have all that, I think. Don’t you?

 

         In their fault, many priests do not teach this to their people. Many do not

         accept these scripture teachings themselves.

 

Where are they going to teach you? They will teach you anywhere except the individual priest like Father Nunez and Father Domingue.

 

         Venezuela is close to my Heart because of your faith. Your faith is so strong

and impressive and I will never leave you.

 

Their faith tells you that she hasn’t left. With all the things that have happened to them, I think she has, but they are not out through the end. They have five thousand people marching. Today 75 to 100 have been killed by soldiers. The soldiers are getting tired of shooting their own people, too. There’s the first crack in Maduro’s army. A police officer got in a helicopter and went around and shot the Supreme Court building and justice department. They are going to get that guy out.

 

         I want you to trust me. Let me be your mother and I will take care of every-

         thing else in your life. Miracles are going to happen; signs and wonders

         are going to happen through Venezuela because the Father chose this

         country.

 

They had it and they lost it. Now what’s going to happen when they come on top? It’s the richest country in the world with natural resources. This guy is taking over all of it, the Communist Party. He’s going to go over this entire thing. They are going to get rid of him but they have to wait for God’s time.

 

It’s the same thing here; now it’s time. It doesn’t make any difference to me if the priests aren’t doing anything around here. I am going to go to the paper and all that stuff, you know. I am going to send the Bishop those letters, my comments, and a check for $100 to enlist in his Centennial fundraising that he sent me.

 

         There are very hard times in some people because they claim the evil,

the red dragon.

 

That’s the first thing I saw where I said my prayer in Venezuela. It was my first prayer. The red dragon and the Blessed Mother were standing next to each other. The red dragon is Satan and the red dragon is powerful.

 

They send me messages asking when I will come to Venezuela. I don’t know. I can’t go now, but I am walking somewhat. I feel my body straightening out. It’s amazing. I stand up by myself. I guess that’s the results of that regular heartbeat.

 

Many priests received soaking prayer from me in Venezuela.

 

         I want every priest in this country, if possible, to receive soaking prayer

         from Father Thomas. Many have already received it. Once they receive

         this, it changes them and they can give you soaking prayer and you can

         give soaking prayer to hundreds of people.

 

I don’t know what they are doing over there now. I haven’t been there in over a year. I was with Victoria in Portugal and Spain. She was my interpreter and gave me my medicine.

 

         Father Thomas is going to write another article on better explaining

         this, this time.

 

         My dear Son suffered so hard and so much for you, and when I say

         you, I mean every soul in this world, good or bad.

 

Every soul that has ever been created in 300,000 years, I wonder what man was like then. He was great and he lost it. The gods that they were talking about in the Old Testament were those men who walked around. When they sinned, or Adam sinned, whoever he was, and Eve, they lost all that good quality and characteristics of it. Their souls were removed from God’s favor. That’s why the Old Testament prepares for when Jesus comes 300,000 years later.

 

They found the oldest man now is about 300,000 years old. The universe is billions of years old. All this time with God, we didn’t know about it. They have proven now the universe had a prime mover and they call him God. They just proved it scientifically. How do you get started? Who started Him? That’s a mystery. He is before and after and everything else.

 

He created man, who has a special privilege of free will to be for or against Him. The ones for Him are going to heaven. The ones against Him are going to hell. There are people who have been against Him.

 

She is talking about God’s love for us in this book because that is important to know. If you know that, you are pretty well at rest. If you don’t know that, you are all in the head and everything has to be logical. You are miserable. I know because I have been there.

 

         He loves you so much He is just burning up with desire to bring you

         into His Heart…

 

He is burning so much with desire to bring you into His Heart. Can you imagine God feeling that way about us? Well, you think about what we are, what we can become. When we die, we’ll be given that or we’ll take a walk to hell. I don’t know how many people go to hell, but quite a few, I guess.

 

         …to sit down inside His Heart and soak up His love; so He does not

want your good works, He wants, as He often says, your recklessness…

 

Recklessness. Do you know what recklessness means? Sin. A reckless soul is someone who is not associated with God and sins. When we sin, we don’t claim God’s existence, but we come back to it in confession. People can confess different ways.

 

         …and by offering your recklessness up to Him, He can save many souls

from going to hell. So, you can see now the plan!

 

The plan is for you to fall in love with God in prayer. God’s love goes out. People receive it and they get saved or they reject it.

 

         Never forget the power of prayer.

 

That’s the third thing—the power of prayer. She said that we know that.

 

I have always said, I can tell how much a person loves God by how much

         they love to pray.

 

That’s all there is to it. It’s simple. We need to take all these other things and throw them away. Just say that one thing right there—how much you love to pray. You can pray different ways. You can talk to Him. You can do whatever you do.

 

Christians have that intimacy with Jesus. They can pray. They can talk to Him. They can explain their ups and downs. They can intercede for their brothers and sisters. They can intercede for the Church. Christianity is quite a group.

 

It’s amazing how they got Christianity in this world today. You think about it. Half of this country doesn’t believe in God. They say they don’t but they will later. They don’t have any teaching. They are not getting any history in school. These are college graduates who can’t tell you who the first president was. They have taken history out because they want to destroy the past. It is a deliberate attempt to destroy the past and 90% of the colleges are liberal teachers. That’s where we got it made. We got a bad taste right there.

 

They do not believe in God. Their god is the production of man. That’s what Trump is fighting right now. I don’t know whether he will win or not, but, I tell you, he is fighting it. As much as I have tried to get him out of my life, I can’t do it because what he does is right. I don’t care what he has been. What he is doing as president now is right. He talks about God all the time. That sells me.

 

How can a man that is evil talk about God all the time? How can you say we are witnessing to God? We are God’s people. Some people have come around to realize that God won that election for him. He couldn’t have won it any other way. They blamed Russia. That’s a distraction to keep him from doing anything. They are thinking that they can do this for four years and he gets unelected. Who are they going to run? They aren’t building anybody up to run.

 

         I have here with me tonight three million angels circling in another

         dimension, blessing you, praising you to the Father.

 

We have to think about these things she’s offering us. We don’t. Of course, it’s my fault. I haven’t taught them well, but I am learning them now.

         “Learn from Me for I am meek and humble of heart,” said my Son…

 

The power of prayer. Meek and humble of heart. You take a person like that and you have a solid person. If we try to be humble of heart, that’s the best thing we can do. Saying “No” to the person we chew out because they say things, not saying it anymore. You can think it, but don’t say it.

 

…and I want you to learn that in this meekness and humble of heart

you will find God.

 

You will find Him in prayer. You will find Him in the humble of heart. He is humble of heart. He has to be to put up with us and all the stuff we do.

 

There will be a war. (That’s the fourth one.) I will not tell you when, but

there is a war. (She said this six years ago.) There is war everywhere,

volcanoes, earthquakes, but God did not cause this; men did it with

his greed and his power, but your prayers can change the world.

 

There is going to be a war. What happens if enough people pray? There won’t be a war. But there is going to be a war.

 

Here is something that she said in Venezuela. I wonder if it shifted to Ville Platte.

 

Venezuela will shine the lights of my Throne, millions will be converted.

 

That’s a real prophecy. How are you going to do that? You’re not; God is going to do it. I wonder what He is going to do over there. He will turn that place around because it’s the peak of Latin America. If Venezuela goes down, Iran will build an atomic receptor there in the Venezuelan mountains. They killed all the Amazon Indians. If they get that, we are surrounded. Of course, Trump is not going to let them have that. They are going to get out of there. It’s just when to do it. Nobody knows when. It’s hard to figure out; Maybe God will tell him.

 

         It sounds out of reach but not really. That the second person of the

Blessed Trinity should become one of us and dies a horrible death

and guarantees us a resurrection seems out of reach but is not.

Tonight, when you get prayed for, I will be behind you, I will have

my hand on you.

 

That’s what she tells these people. They get healed and converted like mad. I just can’t go any more. Other priests are doing it, too, over there. That’s all they have there. They don’t have any money, food, medicine. They’re dying. They’re dying in the streets. That death is going to give them victory.

 

Father Thomas has the hands of God the Father, which is his

         unique anointing; he has to have this in order to do what I want

         him to do.

 

God gave me this gift. All I have to think about is the gift. I don’t think about anything else when I pray for people. Evidently a lot of them got healed. I don’t know. I don’t remember.

 

Again, I love you so very, very, very much. You cannot imagine

         how much I love each one of you.

 

Isn’t that something to know that, to believe it?

 

All I want you to do is to love and pray.

 

That’s just one message from her. This book is fascinating! I am just really learning things from it. Yet, I wrote it. Like the prayer of the anointing of the Armada, I wrote it all in there. I don’t remember a thing.

TEACHING OF “MAC SMITH”

HOME OF LONNIE RICHARD

BRANCH, LA, USA

 

Says the Lord God, “I am always thinking about you and watching everything you do that concerns you”. We need to think about that because that’s exactly being aware of the Divine Presence in our soul.

 Baptism brought that in. Confirmation strengthened it. Then you have Confession. You have the Eucharist. You have the Sacrament of Matrimony, Sacrament of the Priesthood, some married and some not married, the Eastern Rites marry. Then you have the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick which give us continued health here. It will also give you a plenary indulgence if you go to confession and communion, or communion and confession, or whatever. However, you need to be in the state of grace at least

Many don’t know what all the Sacrament of the Eucharist does yet. They know that it takes away sin,heals you, and gives you prophetic insight. The Lord knows that you have a lot of hard hurdles. He knows that you are not perfect because you are human beings. They are divine. He is the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The angels and Mary and the other Christians, all kinds of Christians that are relate to us, are praying all the time. I don’t know whether we are aware of that.

When she comes or He comes there are angels all around. I don’t know they are there. I can hear them. Once in a while they are in my room at night. I hear them rumbling around. This is kind of a small area to fit 17, 000 angels. St. Thomas asked, “How many angels can you get on a pin point. That was the question to study. He asked his students that . They said, “As many as you need.” He said, “Why?” They said, “Because they don’t occupy space. They float through space. They are from another dimension.” This is just like Our Lady who can appear here and 300 hundred other places at the same time. How does she do that? It is simple with God. We just don’t have any idea what that is and we won’t until we die and we see Him. We will have all these graces of all these things.

They know, for example, from that psychiatrist who wrote the book Life After Life. That is a good book to read. He wrote about one lady having died and was dead for about four days. She wanted to see her sister in Mississippi and got there, 700 miles, just like that (finger snap). She wanted to see something else. She got it just like that (finger snap). Then when she came back to earth, she couldn’t see anything. So we are blinded by our nature. Yet by our nature we are lifted up to Heaven because of this Baptism. It brought us into faith. You can’t believe in the Blessed Mother without faith. You can’t believe that Jesus is God without faith. You can think that He was a powerful man and that She was a nice lady but She doesn’t have any heavenly dimensions. But if you have faith you know that.

People that have faith are people who are working the will of God on earth as it is in Heaven, who are forgiving and can be forgiven. You can’t go anywhere unless you forgive. Forgiveness leads us into the life of God. A lot of people can’t forgive themselves. That is something they have to work on and they have to have divine healing for that. You actually cannot have natural healing for that. You can have a healing but you can’t have a natural healing because why are you getting healed? Are you getting healed to preserve your life here or to go to heaven? That’s the difference between those with faith and without faith.

 Jesus said unless you have faith of a child, you shall not go to heaven. That is something to think about, the faith of a child. I have known when children pray with it usually happens because they don’t have doubts. We are talking about little children. They don’t have any doubts. They do not doubt that Jesus is God. They do not doubt that Mary is the Queen of Heaven when they are being exposed to it in the right way. That is our job. So that is the important thing about that.

 You have all these concerns daily when you get away from God, which we all do at times. Go back into His presence by praising Him, worshiping Him, worshiping His Name. Become active in Him with yourself or whisper. It doesn’t make any difference. Get to where you have a conversation with God all day long in a way.

 I noticed that I wasn’t praying as much when I came out of surgery, but I was talking to God all the time. I didn’t think much about that. He told me that is what you are going to do from now on. When you give a talk I will talk through you, like He is doing now. I know that. I feel it. I feel it every talk I give now. I feel it when I talk to people in counseling. Now, I doubt it sometimes but He brings me to reality.

 There isn’t one hurt you have that cannot be treated and healed, emotionally, physically and spiritually if you come to the presence of the Trinity in Jesus Christ, the God Man. That is where all these words come from. The Holy Spirit took over the Church after Jesus ascended into Heaven. The Holy Spirit runs the Church now. The Holy Spirit has kept that Church in unity from Peter until now through the popes. That is a man-made thing that is indispensable because that is the way God made it, just like He made the earth the way He made it. Sixty million years ago there were dinosaurs. I don’t think there was man at that time because the dinosaurs would have eaten them. You can see, if you look around the earth, it is pretty. I notice when you come through here and go through other parts of South Louisiana you can see the beauty of it. In the winter even the trees are stripped down and are awaiting the resurrection of the life to come to the tree. The flowers, all of them, are waiting for it. It is the same with us. We are going to the resurrection or we are going to this direction, whatever you want to call it. I don’t think anyone here is going to hell. We could though. We could turn but we won’t if you keep building it up.

 How are things going to change in this world? It will only change through prayer. I came to that realization in a hurry. How do you pray? It is the way you talk to God. Set your goal for two minutes a day to be with Him alone. That is going to be hard to do because you are going to have distractions. It is like this guy who went to the priest and the priest said, “I have distractions when I pray.” This guy said that he doesn’t have distractions. The priest said, “Oh, really? Say the Our Father.” The guy said “Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom… By the way, what are we having for dinner?” You see, he got distracted just like that. Now the devil is doing that or we are doing it. Don’t worry about it. You are going to have them. Keep trying to be with Him. Keep trying to be in His presence. You have to get your mind fixed on that. You can see Jesus any way you want to see Him. That is who you see when you pray. That is who you want to see when you pray.

 I will read a scripture now: “Let God have all of your worries and cares for He is always thinking about you and watching everything that concerns you.” ( 1 Peter 5:7 )

 Another scripture is Mathew 28:18: Jesus came and said to the disciples, “All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth.” What did He do? He passed it on to His disciples. “What sins you shall forgive are forgiven and what sins you shall loose are loosened in the kingdom of heaven.”

 That is tremendous power, I know. That is what everyone doubts. It is floating around out there. I ‘d say that I don’t know about the Hindus. I don’t know how they are going to get to heaven except through the heart. Their heart has to be trying to seek the one God. What is going to happen to the people who believe in more than one God? I don’t know what is going to happen to those people. I am not going to worry about it. I pray for them. I think that they are going to be alright if they are good people. But they are not going to have the background that you have. They are not going to have the gifts when you die. But they will be perfectly happy like you will be perfectly happy in whatever you are doing.

 Another one is from Mathew 18:1-4. This is a good one because it shows us what kind of attitude we have to have. At that time the disciples approached Jesus and said, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” Jesus kind of looked at them for awhile like why are you asking after all I taught you? You don’t know? They don’t know because they are still working on unknowns. Because we are humans we forget.

 He called a little child and had him stand among them. He said, “I tell you the truth. Unless you change and become like little children you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” What does that mean? We have to have the attitude of the simplicity of a child. God is simple. The person that gets up everyday and says, “I love You, Lord. I want to serve You. Take my day and do with it what you will”, they will go to heaven. I don’t care what it is. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. John the Baptist, they said, was. Jesus said what a great prophet he was. But I’ll tell you, a person that is baptized is far greater than he is. Now we know that John the Baptist is a saint but he was using that as an example of greatness and the simple act of baptism or some kind – desire, body and water, that can cover just about everybody that wants it. You have to want God before you have God and He gives you that first impulse to do. You go and do whatever you want to do with it. It all comes down to that, you know.

 Let Me have all your worries and cares. That may sound easy but it is not. You are accustomed to worry thoughts roaming freely in your brain. They roam in mine. I don’t know about yours. So you must train yourself to bring all your cares into My presence. I have experienced this in the last three or four months. I had to re-discipline myself because my head wasn’t in too good shape when I left here. I had to find a new way to come to God. I found that way.

 Remember that you are never alone in your struggles. That was the first thing I had to really believe. No matter if I am away from God or whatever, He is with me. I can help you because I have all authority in heaven and on earth. Jesus says that. I can help you. All authority is given to me in heaven and on earth. Do you really believe that ? You know that you have to ask yourself the question. Have you even thought about it? We have to think about it if we want to go to heaven.

 My presence, let go of your words as you come into His presence, Savior of the world Who forgave us; Who gives us His grace and Who will give back our glorified bodies ar the end of time. Come into My presence, My presence is important. The fact that He is present, one of us is important. It is important out there, so it is important what we do there, and what they do to us. So what do you do? You forget. Let go of your worries and cares. So you cling to Me like children in rest. You walk into a kindergarten to pick up a child and you see they are all sleeping. They are in total peace. That’s the way it is in heaven and somewhat should be on earth. Amen!

PHILIPPANS 4: 8

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy, meditate on these things.

JOHN 10: 27

My sheep listen to my voice, I know them and they know me.

PSALM 16: 11

You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at you right hand are pleasures forevermore.

NUMBERS 6: 25

The Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you.

PSALM 73: 23-26

Yet I am always with you, you hold me by my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory. Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire but you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

PROVERBS 28: 26

He who trusts in himself is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom is kept safe.

PROVERBS 18: 1O

The name of the Lord is a stroong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.

Mac discusses a meditation from JESUS TODAY by Sarah Young

I am the One who keeps you safe.” That is God. There is nothing we want more than to feel safe.

You tend to rely heavily on your thinking and plannibg, as if that is where your security lies.” Remember, a man who trusts himself is a fool.

When you start to feel anxious about something, your mind goes into overdrive – searching for solutions, seaarching for security. All the while I am with you, holding you by your right hand.” While we are searching, do we realize where that security lies? The more we realize that , the closer we are to God. The closer we to God, no mater whether it is in life or death or suffering or what, we are safe. We are getting there. We have all our years to love that on earth. Beware of trusting in yourself – which is foolish. Instead, walk in wisdom and you will be kept safe. Because you walk in wisdom, you are walking to learn. That is what wisdom does, it gives you the ability to learn.

The essence of wisdom is to trust in Me more than in yourself or other people. I stand ready to guide you with My counsel, so bring all your concerns to Me.” You know, I know a lot of people live this life. I have to be positive about that, but there are a whole lot that don’t. They don’t even want to ohear about it. We have to pray for them. They seek their pleasure in murder, rape, torture, hold-ups and robberies. Then there are others who do a more refined way of just being ini themselves all the time getting what they want. Then there are the others who don’t know what to do. They don’t know what to do. They have to build. All of tem have to build. Every soul is loved by God just as much as He loves us. It is up to us around the people that are brought to us to pray for them. We can do nothing else, but prayer might save their soul.

When you are feeling confused, it may be helpful to write out your prayers,…” If you are really confused and you can’t think, it would be good to write your prayers out and read them. Just like that. That sterling part of your awareness will come back. If is doesn’t come back, so what? WE are not God. If it doesn’t come back, then He didn’t give it to us. He gave us to write it out and say prayers.

…asking Me to show you the way forward.” That is the way He goes, forward. He does not go backwards. He does not live in the past. Once we confess our sins it is over except for the state of the Spirit, so remain with it. It can’t get us back in the past.

Then wait in My presence, giving Metime to guide your mind while you focus on Me and My word.” This is the Bible, of course. In other words, He is giving people, though we a Bible, it is the Old Testament and the New Testament. That is the one we reaad when we want to know for sure whar He said. The other things are said but the other things are part of tradition which He said to different people all through the ages. That is 2000 years, maybe even 4000 years.i

You can whisper, “Jesus”, to help you stay focused.” There is nothing we can add to that. Jesus is a name that embraces all names, all parts of life. Jesus. Treasure that name. Say it over and over again. Jesus. That will help you stay focused. You know, if you can’t think of anything, say Jesus. That is saying it all. His blood and His name.

My Name – representing all that I AM – is a strong tower; those who run to it are safe.” I Am that I Am He told Moses. Moses said how am I going to go down and tell that that “I AM” sent me? He said that you just tell them tha what you do came from Me. That is how we do , too, the things we do in our struggles, in our glory, in what we have.

JESUS. I AM. My name representing all that I am is a strong tower. Not power, but tower of strength. All of you who run to it are safe. You are sll safe if you run to that name. That is the name that made a difference in the world. The other religions have things but thay don’t have Jesus.

So tonight when you go to bed, just say thaqt name, Jesus. It strikes you. If that is the one word that you can say before you die that will save you, it is that name , JESUS. Amen!

REVELATION EPILOGUE

TEACHING BY REV. THOMAS MAC SMITH

This is where John sees the angels standing. The seven angels, but there are other angels of seven places he stands of seven cities, seven churches and he’s guarding against these things. I am going to read today about the thousand year reign and the new heaven and the new earth. I am going to read Chapters 20 and 21 of the Book of Revelation. They bring the good news and show you the hope that we have.

CHAPTER 20: The Thousand-year Reign Then I saw an angel come down from heaven, holding in his hand the key to the abyss and a heavy chain. [This is the key to hell with the heavy chain. He’ll wrap Satan up. He seized the dragon and that’s Satan. That’s what we saw in Venezuela, the red dragon. At the point of Venezuela with the Blessed Mother coming with the altar, with the Armada, and she’s starting a war in Latin America. Satan has control of Latin America. We saw that eight years ago and there’s one here, too, but I don’t know where he is.] He seized the dragon, the ancient serpent, which is the Devil or Satan, and tied it up for a thousand years and threw it into the abyss, which he locked over it and sealed, so that it could no longer lead the nations astray until the thousand years are completed. [So there will be a thousand years of peace, whole peace.] After this, it is to be released for a short time.

Then I saw thrones [They’re angels.]; those who sat on them were entrusted with judgement. I also saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus [You got them now. They are getting beheaded left and right.] and for the word of God, and who had not worshiped the beast or its image nor had accepted its mark on their foreheads or hands. They came to life and they reigned with Christ for a thousand years. [That’s after he comes back. He starts to reign for a thousand years. That’s going to be a long time. That’s 10 centuries.] The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were over. This is the first resurrection. [The defeat of the dead and the body didn’t come to life until after the thousand years were completed and he rose them up. They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. If they reigned with Christ they are going to be in the highest heaven. They are going to be the people who died before and would be resurrected because the devil is going to be released again for a short period of time. You know a short period of time to God in the Bible isn’t very long, is it? It will be long. The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were over.] This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is the one who shares in the first resurrection. [They go to heaven.] The second death has no power over these; they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will reign with him for the thousand years. [All those people will be priests of God, all of them.]

When the thousand years are completed, Satan will be released from his prison. He will go out to deceive the nations at the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, [Those are symbols. The north, south, east and west are where there. They didn’t even know that the earth was round then.] to gather for battle; their number is like the sand of the sea. They invaded the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the holy ones and the beloved city. But fire came down from heaven and consumed them. [God did it. He killed them.] The Devil who had led them astray was thrown into the pool of fire and sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet were. There they will be there tormented day and night forever and ever. [So after the thousand years were over, he was in hell for good.]

[It’s important to fight the devil. I am going to fight him. I might get thrown out of the Church, but I will fight him. I won’t be allowed to do it in the Church. They don’t believe in it. That’s one of his poisons. That came out of the Vatican Council. Now, they didn’t come out because there is the devil and exorcism. They are doing exorcisms now. They are doing things against the devil in the rest of the world, in Rome and everywhere. This Pope is fine. He is going around and is getting them to fight the devil. But he has to go into every country. He is running into resistance.]

The Large White Throne Next I saw a large white throne and the one who was sitting on it. The earth and the sky fled them from his presence and there was no place for them. [There was no light as we know it, just everything was bright. There was bright heavenly light.] I saw the dead, the great and the lowly, standing before the throne, and scrolls were opened. Then another scroll was opened, the book of life. The dead were judged according to their deeds, by what was written on the scrolls. The sea gave up its dead; then Death and Hades gave up their dead. All the dead were judged according to their deeds. Then Death and Hades were thrown into the pool of fire. This pool of fire is the second death. Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the pool of fire. [That’s hell. That is terrible and then we have the next to the last chapter, chapter 21. That’s the new heaven and the new earth. The new heaven and new earth will be created. All of that is going to be done in maybe a second. He comes down in the pool of fire. He comes down to get rid of it. He comes down to wash it out. He comes down to set the heaven and earth. It will be like a new Garden of Eden.]

CHAPTER 21: The New Heaven and the New Earth Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth. The former heaven and the former earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. [The oceans were gone and ¾ of our resistance water; so all of it was land.] I also saw the holy city, a new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. [I saw the holy city, that’s the new heaven and new earth, and new Jerusalem. Rome is the New Jerusalem. It is the new capital of salvation.] I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, God’s dwelling is with the human race. [God is now dwelling with the human race. That’s going to be something isn’t it?] He will dwell with them and they will be his people and God himself will always be with them as their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, wailing or pain for the old order has passed away.

The one who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” Then he said, “Write these words down, for they are trustworthy and true.” He said to me, “They are accomplished.” I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give the gift from the spring of life-giving water. The victor will inherit these gifts, and I shall be his God, and he will be my son. But as for cowards, the unfaithful, the depraved, murderers, the unchaste, sorcerers [They are witches.], idol-worshipers, and deceivers of every sort, their lot is in the burning pool of fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”

The New Jerusalem [The new Jerusalem, that’s the new heaven.] One of the seven angels who held the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came and said to me, “Come here. I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.” He took me in a spirit to a great, high mountain and showed me the holy city Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God. It gleamed with the splendor of God. Its radiance was likes that of a precious stone, like jasper, clear as crystal. It had a massive, high wall, with twelve gates where twelve angels were stationed and on which names were inscribed the names of the twelve tribes of the Israelites. There were three gates facing east, three north, three south, and three west. The wall of the city had twelve courses of stones as its foundation, on which were inscribed the twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. [From each one of these tribes of the apostles was a person living.]

The one who spoke to me held a gold measuring rod to measure the city, its gates, and its wall. The city was square, its length the same as also its width. He measured the city with the rod and found it fifteen hundred miles in length and width and height. [That’s not very big for the human race, is it?] He also measured its wall: one hundred and forty-four cubits according to the standard unit of measurement the angel used. The wall was constructed of jasper, while the city was pure gold, clear as glass. [Can you imagine a city of glass and that big?] The foundations of the city wall were decorated with every precious stone; the first course of stones was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald, the fifth sardonyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh hyacinth, and the twelfth amethyst. The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each of the gates made from a single pearl; and the street of the city was of pure gold, transparent as glass.

I saw no temple in the city, for its temple is the Lord God almighty and the Lamb. The city had no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gave it light, and its lamp was the Lamb. The nations will walk by its light, and to it the kings of the earth will bring their treasure. During the day its gates will never be shut, and there will be no night there. The treasure and wealth of the nations will be brought there, but nothing unclean will enter it, nor anyone who does abominable things or tells lies. Only those will enter whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life.[Again they are dying.]

CHAPTER 22: Then the angel showed me the river of life-giving water, sparkling like crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of its street. On either side of the river grew the tree of life that produces fruit twelve times a year, once each month; the leaves of the trees serve as medicine for the nations. [There will be no doctors.] Nothing accursed will be found there anymore. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him. They will look upon his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. Night will be no more, nor will they need light from lamp or sun, for the Lord God shall give them light, and they shall reign forever and ever. [So, if you need anything, it is on those trees. These trees reproduce. There’s supposed to be those trees now.]

EPILOGUE: And he said to me, “These words are trustworthy and true, and the Lord, the God of prophetic spirits, sent his angel to show his servants what must happen soon.”

Behold I am coming soon.” Blessed is the one who keeps the prophetic message of this book.

It is I, John, who heard and saw these things, and when I heard and saw them I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who showed them to me. But he said to me, “Don’t! I am a fellow servant of yours and of your brothers the prophets and of those who keep the message of this book. Worship God.” [I am the same as you are.]

Then he said to me, “Do not seal up the prophetic words of this book, for the appointed time is near. Let the wicked still act wickedly, and the filthy still be filthy. The righteous must still do right, and the holy still be holy.”

“Behold, I am coming soon. I bring with me the recompense I will give to each according to his deeds. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”

Blessed are they who wash their robes so as to have the right to the tree of life and enter the city through its gates. Outside are the dogs, the sorcerers, the unchaste, the murderers, the idol-worshipers, and all who love and practice deceit.

“I, Jesus, sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the root and offspring of David, the bright morning star.”

The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” Let the hearer say, “Come.” Let the one who thirsts come forward, and the one who wants it receive the gift of life-giving water.

I warn everyone who hears the prophetic words in this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book, and if anyone takes away from the words in this prophetic book, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city described in this book.

The one who gives this testimony says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!

The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all.

[That’s why all the Masses, all the confessions, all the good works, all of these things follow up in the book of life. You can’t be in that book of life fully until you complete everything and to be done in purgatory, too. But the Church has been given the Alpha and Omega and it is God. The Church is God. So we can say you get a plenary indulgence. So this is the Year of Mercy which is over in November. You don’t have much time. I wonder how people are going through the doors. You need to go.]

TEACHING ON THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES AND

                        THE BOOK OF REVELATION           

BY THOMAS MAC SMITH

                                                      MAY 16, 2016

 

I want to explain about Our Lady’s message tonight because it is very important.  The Book of Revelation and the Acts of the Apostles are the two most important books in the New Testament.  The Acts of the Apostles are the history of the early Church, how it got started and it brings in to date the great things that Jesus did, which of course, was die on the cross; he gave us his body and blood forever, which was the eternal sign forever, that the Church is eternal.  I don’t think people realize that, but it was something Jesus did not have to do.  He could have just died, rose again and saved the world. But he did much more than that,  with the abundance of teachings in the Old Testament and the New Testament, actually the New Testament is the other practical writings that he gave.   And then the writings of Paul and Peter, Titus, the First Corinthians, Second Corinthians are very famous books.  All of these have very important writings in them because they contain the truths of humanity.  They are the real truths.  They weren’t some kind of super-natural truths.  They brought humanity into God.  They brought humanity into salvation and that’s what was important about them.  The gifts of the Holy Spirit and of course, the Holy Spirit came after Jesus ascended to the Father and sits at His right hand and then he will come again to judge the living and the dead at the end of the world.

Then the Holy Spirit came and everything else has been from the Holy Spirit, all the gifts everything really, Jesus’ birth, everything is from the Holy Spirit.  When you look at it and go over it carefully, it is the Holy Spirit that did all of this.  He is in each one of us.   He gave each one of us these gifts and he expects us to not only take the gifts, but also to give them out; to give it to others; to give it to those who have left the Church, which by the way, these Community Churches around the country are mostly Catholics.  They are fallen away Catholics because the Catholics got married again or they got married two or three times.  We are doing everything wrong.  Everything wrong and this has got to stop and it is going to stop.  How it stops and when it stops? I don’t know, but I know we have to keep praying for our own soul and for the souls of those who have fallen away from us.  Because they are going to come back and they are going to come back into Church like a storm.  And behold the priest that tries to stop it.  It’s going to be bad for him.  That is a warning, by the way, that Jesus has given. He also has given out the supreme law, which is to forgive.  To forgive our selves, to forgive those who have left the Church, sin, to forgive them all.  We have to forgive in order for us to be able to have heaven on Earth and heaven in Heaven.  And we can have heaven on earth.  We can’t have it quiet as well as we’ll have when we get there, but we can have it.  If you are in a state of grace right now you’ve got heaven on earth.  Did you know that?  Now your body doesn’t feel it because your body is being punished.  It is always going to be punished until we die and then we resurrect with a new life and then it will begin to roll on, roll on.

The Book of Revelation, twenty-three chapters tells the whole story; tells who Jesus is, the Alpha, the Omega, the four horses of the Apocalypse.

All of these things are beautiful and we have to be able to get into these in this miserable world because if we don’t, we will be miserable.  We are going to be miserable even when we do, if Satan has anything to do with it.  But he can’t do anything unless we let him do it.

People are looking worse than they ever looked; children are born in conditions which make them look terrible. But that is not the way it is always going to be; it is  going to be beautiful, absolutely beautiful.

I sit here and I sit during the day and I sit in my room, then I go out then I come back.  Every one of those steps can be a step toward heaven or a step toward hell.  It’s up to me.  I am not responsible for what you do.  I am responsible for telling you what to do, to suggest ways for you to do it easier, to listen to your problems, but I am not responsible for what you do or who you are.  I am responsible for who I am.  A lot of people go around saving other people and they don’t take responsibility for themselves and they are in trouble.  So we have to pray for them that they realize that they have this gift for themselves, primarily.  It wouldn’t make any sense if God gave this gift to everybody else and didn’t give it to us.  As a person, it would not make any sense at all.  And it wouldn’t be a gift if we didn’t give it from our self to others.

So you see, no matter how the world is, how bad it is, how crooked people are, how dirty they are, what kind of tricks they pull, it is what we are doing that counts.  In this room, what we doing, that is what counts. Out on the streets, what are they doing? How much are they aware of this themselves? This is what they have to learn from the Church.  This is what they have to learn because if they don’t learn it, we failed.  But if we have done everything we can for ourselves we are automatically going to do it for others and then we will have succeeded.  The most important person in the world today to you and me is us, then comes the rest of the people and that is the way is has to be with everybody. In the Book of Revelation and the Acts of the Apostles, along with the gospels and within it is the story and the means to get there.  Amen

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TEACHING ON THE HEART

BY THOMAS MAC SMITH

APRIL 4, 2016

 

 Well, I thought that tonight I would again chat about the “Heart”. Just because we have the heart does not mean we shouldn’t intensify our faith. The heart is what we measure ourselves with. If you look at the mind it will drive you crazy, it doesn’t make sense. But your heart is real because it really uses everything you have, physically, mentally and spiritually. Everything is in the heart, unless the heart stops. Then it all stops except the spiritual body and the soul which will go its own way. In these days, especially, it seems like we have gotten higher in one way and lower in another way.

 The Church is going strong in the world but it is not going strong enough and that is because some churches are only pursuing things that are needs. We have the Mass and we have the Sacraments and we have those things that most people believe in.

 Many people believe in prayer also but when it comes to how to pray, many don’t know how to pray, but they think they do. They pray with their mind. You can pray with your mind except your mind makes errors. It not only makes errors, it can’t go far enough. That is when you rely on the heart, but you have to know what the heart is doing. You have to know what the heart is there for.

 When you examine your conscious or you think about God or the Blessed Mother or a Saint or when you are praying for someone or for yourself, it is good to look at your heart first. Look at your heart because that will tell you really where you are. The mind can absorb but it can also be used by Satan; the heart can’t, unless you let it. The heart can’t go anywhere unless you let it go. This is the thing that is going to be necessary this year; that our hearts become more inflamed with the love of God. You can never love God too much and you can never love Him enough. But you can forgive. You can forgive anybody, which we do sometimes. We all sin, but the heart forgives. Your mind does not forgive. You can think about forgiving, but it cannot forgive. Your heart can and your heart can seek forgiveness from God in different ways. The best way is through confession, because you have the successor of Christ (the priests) and the Acts of the Apostles there for absolution.

 You talk about a plenary indulgence, well now all you have to do is go through the Church door of Mercy and then go to confession within twenty days, receive communion and attend Mass. And did you know that every third Thursday night in Plaisance at St. Joseph Catholic Church, you can get a plenary indulgence by going to confession, receiving communion and getting anointed? You can. get it right there, period. At least you will go straight to Heaven. You also can get it for a soul in Purgatory or some other soul. These are the things that we need to think about. The Rosary, that is the most powerful prayer besides the Mass; Divine Mercy is another one, then there are other prayers, all kinds of prayers. These are the ones that really are there that God gave us to save our souls and the save the souls of others. But if you are just there to save your soul you are not going to do it. You are not going to do it just to save your soul. There is no such thing as loving and just keeping it for yourself. It has to go outside of you to others and you may not even know it. For example, if you are living with someone whose heart is not into God or lost, give your heart to them. Give your heart to your children. Some of your children are not doing right. Many children in the United States are not doing right. They do not know that God is trying to get into their hearts. They do not even bother to say the Our Father. That is how removed they are now. And we pray for them because God is the One who converts them. We have the on going prayer that Our Lord gave us for their safety and salvation. The Our Father is the perfect prayer.

 The curses are powerful. Let me tell you, witchcraft, voodoo, Santeria, Satanism are also powerful. In Venezuela they are really powerful. Up in the mountains they are in full force; the sect of one of those is throwing curses on all the people. I prayed over 30,000 people they say, I don’t know. But I tell you one thing, a fourth of them had personal spirits. I just call it voodoo. But by the power of the Blood of Jesus and the power of His Holy Name, I say “get out of here” and just like that they go. I must have special graces then. And I must be given special graces to pray over so many people for 30 seconds to a minute, for up to 16 hours. I couldn’t stand up afterwards.

 At nighttime I was tired. I was tired for two weeks and when I got back here I was sick. But God had given me the graces to get through it, to pray for all the people and He will do it again. I just about get as tired here with you as I did there, that shows that it is grace that is doing it. It is the same thing with you, but you have to think about it.

 You also need to think about what you have in material things as compared to the world. Though all of us are created equal, they do not eat. They may eat one meal a day. Sometimes they have to go to the neighbors to pick vegetables off the trees or they share the cows. They make it. It is just awful. Their houses are on the highways, in the mountains, shacks. It is because there is no money in Venezuela. The inflation is 400%, one thousand bolivars to one dollar. It used to be ten bolivars to one dollar. That is how much money Muldero and the government have stolen and kept from the people. They kept a whole warehouse full of food, five million dollars worth of food. It is not going to the people like it should be. Thank God that the new Congress was voted in and the old were voted out. The people have one thing that could carry them through, but they have a tough time. So t or they are going to have a reprimand or they are going to ask Muldero to leave.

 In two or three years they will get back to normal. Normal was 50% -60% were poor. Now 70% of the people are poor and the poor don’t have as much. They do not have any federal assistance. They don’t have any medicines, none. Medication can’t get into the country. Here we have medicines. We have food stamps. We have all that stuff, plus people have jobs. Yet there are still twenty, thirty, forty, fifty sixty million people not even on that. So if you want something to pray for, pray for that.

 I know that we pray here and that is why we are protected. If we should quit, watch what could happen. In Louisiana, this area is protected more than any other area. The storms that are predicted to come through here don’t come here. They go to other places in Louisiana, but they don’t come here. That is because of the meetings we have and the prayers we say. But now we are going to have to do what we can, that’s all. Nobody is asking you to do anything else. Pray for our leaders, especially those that aren’t doing anything but the costing the people a lot of money.

 Just think what would happen if every Catholic went through a “Door of Mercy” and started praying. I guarantee you this world would be different. And then Jesus would come here as KING. We would never have to worry again. We would have different bodies. We would have everything. We wouldn’t have to die to continue to live here. But that is not going to happen right now.

 What can happen is that you can say an extra Our Father and an extra Hail Mary for a person who needs his/ her soul saved. If they don’t have a soul, the devil has their soul. I see them. They even come to my office in Ville Platte, but they have a soul when they leave. They are shown how to get it back or they wouldn’t be here; they would be out practicing witchcraft someplace. So this is beautiful here, even though there aren’t very many; it varies – half-full to a house full. We don’t have to have a full house. You have to keep having faith in the future; faith in the future and hope is for tomorrow. You see that is what we are looking forward to and then seeing somebody converted that you prayed for. WOW! Or somebody converted that you prayed for that you do not know, but he got converted though somewhere. These are the things that are important.

 Whether you have a car, two cars, three cars, a house, they are all important. Plenty of food, that’s important. Extra money, that is important. But, none of this is important if you don’t pray to God. None of it. Thank God you have what you have.

 The greatest miracle you know in the world is every morning when you open your eyes. People do not think about that. You can just not wake up you know. You wake up and you open your eyes and look forward to what you have. Some don’t have anything and need assistance; that is what I am all about. I don’t know what you are about, but I think you are about some of that. And that is what we need, to continue praying for the conversion of the heart to God.

 I am a sinner. I sin but I get rid of it by confession. But I sin again, but I get rid of it. That is kind of funny, but it is the truth.

 Our physical pains are really bad for some people, but it is nothing like Hell, I can you that. Your physical pains are your chance to be a saint. All saints were sinners. There was not a single life that wasn’t a sinner except the Blessed Virgin. I have this book by Bob and Penny Lord about the Saints that saw Heaven, Hell and Purgatory. Every Saint was a sinner before and they saw that. I don’t know if all those visions were true or not or whether they were pertinent to them, but they do exist. I want to tell you the only I want to be is in Heaven. If I am in purgatory, I want out fast. And hell, I don’t even want to talk about it. It;s here. It’s rotten.

 

TEACHING ON THE HEART

                                                   BY THOMAS MAC SMITH

 

Well, I thought I give a chat tonight again about the “Heart”. Just because we have the heart does not mean we shouldn’t intensify our faith. The heart is what we measure ourselves with.   You look at the mind it will drive you crazy. It doesn’t make any sense. But your heart is what is real because it really uses everything you have. It’s physically, mentally and spiritually everything is in the heart. Unless the heart stops, it all stops except the spiritual body and the soul which will go its way. In these days, especially it seems like we have gotten higher in one way and lower in another way.

The Church is going strong in the world, but its not going enough and its because the local churches are really pursuing things that are needs. We have the mass and we have the sacraments. We have those that most people believe in.

But when it comes to prayer, a lot of people believe in that too. When it comes to how to pray, a lot of people don’t know how to pray, but they think they do. They pray with their mind. You can pray with your mind except your mind makes errors. It not only makes errors, it can’t go far enough. That’s when it relies on the heart, but has to know what its doing. It has to know what the heart is there for.

When you examine your conscious or you think about God or the Blessed Mother or a saint or when you are praying for someone or for yourself, it’s good to look at your heart first. Look at your heart because that will tell you really where you are. The mind can absorb and it can also be used by Satan, but the heart can’t not unless you let it. The heart can’t go anywhere unless you let it go. This is the thing that’s going to be so necessary this year.   These hearts become more enflamed with the love of God. You can never love God too much and you can never love him enough.

But you can forgive anybody, which we do sometimes. We all sin, but the heart forgives. Your mind does not forgive. You can think about forgiving, but it cannot forgive. Your heart can and your heart can seek forgiveness from God different ways. The best way is through confession, because you have the successor of Christ (the priest) and the Acts of the Apostles there for the absolution.

You talk about a plenary indulgence, well now all you have to do is go through the Church door in essence and then you go to confession within (20) twenty days, receive communion and attend mass. But did you know every third or fourth Thursday night in Plaisance at (St. Joseph’s Catholic Church) you can get a plenary indulgence by going to confession, communion and getting anointed? You can get it right there, period. At least you go straight to heaven. You also can get it for a soul in Purgatory or some other soul. These are the things we are to think about.

TheRosary, that is the most powerful prayer besides the mass; Divine Mercy is another one. Then, there’s other prayers, all kinds of prayers. But those are the ones that really are there that God gave us to save our soul and to save other souls. And if you just there to save your soul you are not going to do it. You are not going to do it just to save your soul. There is no such thing of loving and just keeping it for your self. It has to go outside of you to others. You may not even know it. For example, if you are living with someone whose heart is not into God or lost, give your heart to them. Give your heart to your children. Some of your children are not doing right. A whole lot of children in the United States are not doing right. They do not even know that God is trying to get into their heart. They do not even bother to say the Our Father. That is how removed they are now. And we pray for them because God is the one who converts them.  We have the on going prayer that Our Lady gave us for their safety and salvation. The Our Father is the perfect prayer.

The curses are powerful. Let me tell you witchcraft, voodoo, santeria, satanism are also powerful. In Venezuela they’re really powerful. Up in the mountains they are in full force, the sect of one of those is throwing curses on all people. I prayed over 30,000 people they say, I do not know. But I’ll tell you one thing, a fourth of them had personal spirits. I just called it voodoo. By the power of the Blood of Jesus and the power of His Holy Name, get out of here. Just like that they go. I must have special graces then. Because I must have special graces to pray over people 30 seconds to a minute if you take that many people into consideration. You couldn’t go from 6 to 16 hours administering prayer. I couldn’t stand up afterwards.

At nighttime, I could use my sleep machine and sometimes I couldn’t. I was tired. I was tired for two weeks when I got back, sick, diarrhea vomiting, etc. I had all those things. God gave me all the graces to get through it to pray for the people and he will do it again. I don’t get tired here as I did there. I just about get as tired right now with you all as I did then. That shows you its grace that is doing it. It’s the same thing with you, but you have to think about it. You have to think about what you have. Think about what you have in comparison to the world and you have the material things some of you.

Though all of us are equal. They don’t eat. They may eat one meal a day. Sometimes they have to go to the neighbors and to pick the vegetables off the trees or they share cows. They make it. It’s just awful. Their houses are on the highways in the mountains, shacks. It’s because there is no money in Venezuela. The inflation is 400%, one thousand bolivars to one dollar. It used to be ten bolivars to one dollar. That’s how much money they have stolen and kept from the people. They kept a whole warehouse full of food, five million dollars worth of food. It’s not going to the people that it should be going to. Thank God that Congress was voted in and they were voted out. They have one thing and that could carry them through, but they have a tough time.

So they are going to have a reprimand or they are going to ask some man to leave.   In two or three years they’ll get back to normal. Normal was 50%, 60% were poor.

This time 70% of the people are poor and the poor don’t have as much. They do not have any federal assistance. They don’t have any medicines, none. Medication can’t get into the country. Here we have medicines. We have food stamps. We have all that stuff. Plus other people have jobs yet there are still twenty, thirty, forty, fifty, sixty million people not even on that. So if you want something to pray for, pray for that.

I know that we pray here and that’s why we are protected. If we should quit, watch what happens. In Louisiana, this area is protected more than any other area. The storms that are predicted to come through here don’t get here. They go to other places in Louisiana, but they don’t come here. That is because of the meetings we have and the prayers we say. But now we are going have to do what we can that’s all. Nobody is asking you to do anything else.

The leaders, the ones that are suppose to be doing it, some are doing it some aren’t. Turn to the ones that aren’t because they are costing people a whole lot.   Just think if everybody went through a door and starting prayer, every Catholic in the world, what would happen? I guarantee you this whole world would be different. And then Jesus would come here as KING. We would never have to worry again. We would have different bodies.   We would have everything. We wouldn’t have to die to continue to live here. But that is not going to happen right now.

What can happen you can say an extra Our Father and an extra Hail Mary for somebody that have a soul. If they don’t have a soul, the devil has their soul. I see them. They even come to my office in Ville Platte, but they have a soul when they leave. Because they’re shown how to get it back or they would not be there. They would be out practicing witchcraft someplace. So this is beautiful here even though there aren’t very many, even though it varies, have a full house, don’t have a full house. You have to keep having faith in the future. Faith in the future and hope is for tomorrow. You see that is what we are looking forward to and then seeing somebody converting that you prayed for. Wow! Or somebody converted that you prayed for that you do not know, but he got converted though somewhere. These are the things that are important.

Whether you have a car, two cars, three cars, a house they are all important. Plenty of food, that’s important. Extra money, that is important, but none of this is important if you don’t pray to God, None of it. Thank God you have what you have.

The greatest miracle you know in the world is every morning when you open your eyes. People don’t think about that. He can just not wake up you know. You wake up and you open your eyes and look forward to what you have. Some don’t have anything and need assistance; that is what I am all about. I don’t know what you are about, but I think you are about some of that. And that is what we need to continue to pray for the conversion of the heart to God.

I am a sinner, I sin, but I get rid of it by confession. But I sin again, but I get rid of it. That is kind of funny, but it is the truth.

Our physical pains, they are bad for some people. But it is nothing like hell, I can tell you.   Your physical pains are your chance to be a saint. All saints were sinners. There was not a single life that wasn’t a sinner except the Blessed Virgin.  I have this book by Bob and Penny Lord about the saints that saw Heaven Hell and Purgatory. Every one was a sinner before and they saw that. I don’t know whether all those visions were true or not or whether they were pertinent to them. But they do exist. I want to tell you the only place I want to be is in Heaven. If I am in purgatory, I want out of there fast. And hell, I don’t want to even talk about it. It’s there. It’s rotten.

 

Our Lady of the Most Precious Blood- Venezuela Mission                                             And Teaching on Matthew 6  

                                                   By Thomas Mac Smith                  

                                                          October 16, 2015

After I am going to Venezuela, which I am going from February to March 15th until they get that thing ready. They’ve got the land and everything. So, we’ll probably have a mass. It won’t be long in Venezuela itself until they will put fifty thousand people there. It’ll be all over the world. The grotto will be first besides the stature of the Blessed Mother will be five foot four; the crucifix of Our Lord; two angels, an altar in the front of the grotto on beautiful land. I have never seen such beautiful land in the world. They have horses grazing on the land. She told them to have it ready by December and the engineers and everybody are out there working. It’s very fortunate, it’s two thousand somewhat feet up in the air and oversees two towns. It has about fifteen parking rows because they are all farmers and it’s all paved. The most anybody will have to walk is about a quarter of a mile. They will also have a lift. There will be plenty room for cars. That is all set up. They will build the Church eventually near the Blessed Mother and a church to God the Father, which will be the only church to God the Father in the world. We have the Stations of the Cross down on the other side of the grotto that go around and on the other side going this way is the view of the creation of the Lord. You will have a gazebo so people could sit and pray. I understand they may want to build monastery. So that’s the way that’s set up. It wasn’t overnight. It took seven or eight years to get this.

Over here, (Louisiana) we have the IRS papers and changed the Mission’s name from the old group to this group.   We have opened a bank account here. We can start going whenever we go. Right now the shrine is at the Fontenot’s house, (Mary’s House). It will probably be a big part of it anyhow since those statues are all over there.

When I get back from Venezuela, I will be able to go to Baton Rouge, Raceland, etc. for a short time. We will have in-house healing service and will be about fifteen a year, I guess, maybe more.

I will be writing in depth about “Soaking Prayer”. What it is, it is not just for a person to show up to get prayed for. It is a combination of various things, counseling, prayer for the mind, prayer for the body, prayer for the soul. It will be hands on healing. It is all that so it needs to be explained. We haven’t explained that yet so people do not know what that means, but they will once we get through. We will put out sheets explaining soaking prayer.

I will be in Venezuela part of February and part of March. Need to get scheduling done, first come, first served.

I want to share with you an experience I have had since I have been sick. It has come to fruition in the last three months. It was there the other night when I prayed.

I had this vision of the Blessed Trinity, the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. The Blessed Mother is with them and St. Michael is also there with all the saints around them. The important thing about this is that it saturated me as a matter of faith and mercy. It’s to teach you how to pray: faith and mercy. If you don’t have those two, you do not have any prayer anyhow. You may think you do, but you don’t. So, when I am praying now with people, soaking prayer and everything I do not do anything, but hold my hand. I’ll pray in tongues if I have to, to myself, because that prayer goes to God he translates it anyhow. You can get a signal from the heart of Jesus that something has happened to the person. That is what you get. That’s happened every time. The Lord said at least ten miracles that happened since then. ***I don’t determine that of course you know. It’s something that comes with the title I was given when the picture that was taken by that lady. I’m “The Blood of the Lamb” and the title of The Blood of the Lamb is now there. So that’s where I am coming from when I am praying. I am not going through any emotional thing during the healing service. You can tell me what you want, I’ll lay hands and we’ll pray.

Now, when it comes to soaking prayer that’s different. If you have emotional things you have to get rid of first then do soaking prayer as far as to laying down and the healing.

Sometimes people have emotional stuff they need to get out. They haven’t done it before. So that is what it’s all about. So you see, it’s going to be quiet involved after March. I’m telling you all because I wanted to say it myself and get it out of my system. I was going to say it last night, but I did not feel like getting up there. I didn’t feel good last night. Whoever was there got what was given to them because it’s coming from there it’s not coming from here.   Now it’s going to communion and you to God with faith, coming back with the faith to grow the grace of faith, the grace of faith, coming back growing. But also, it has the mercy of God. The mercy of God is the Eucharist. Jesus does not have to heal any of us, but out of mercy he does. He (leans) for mercy, of course, the gifts of love and everything else, that’s all on that. I don’t think there’s anyone above soaking prayer, but at the same time you could go along with your life without soaking prayer. You can pray the regular way and all of that. I’m talking to myself into a lot of work here, but I don’t know of anybody else that does it. I’m sure there are priests that pray and pray effectively, but not many of them are doing that either. So, we’ve got to start this. We got to start and it’s got to go to the outside world. It has to go outside the Church. The Church is fifty percent decline in population. You do not know what is going on in the big cities. It’s going to open up. This Pope is going to open it up. Some of these bishops are doing it too.

My teaching is based entirely on that.

 

MATTHEW 6

You will find it on Matthew 6, the last part of Matthew 6.

“Therefore, I tell you, do not worry about your life, whether you will eat or drink or about your body or what you are going to wear. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds in the sky, they do not sow or reap, they gather nothing into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are not you more important than they?” Do you not think you’re more important than a bird? You see with us it takes faith. It takes faith he is going to do it and it takes faith that he won’t do what we want but what he wants. “Why are you anxious about clothes? Learn from the way the wild flowers grow. They do not work or spin. But I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was clothed like one of them.” Take a rose, you know and see how perfectly that rose is made. Solomon did not do that. Man can’t do anything perfect. Human nature can, because it’s created by God directly, now human nature is having a hard time, but we can see that we’ve got to strive for perfection. The same thing with the mass, confession, communion, it is like Father Nunez said last night, “THIS IS MY BODY.” It is not, this bread represents the body; this is the body of Christ, “THIS IS MY BLOOD”, the wine. Other Churches say whatever, but they do not say it is. It is my body and it is my blood, because the first place they can’t say it. Only a priest can say it with the apostolic succession back to Peter. Any priest can say it. You are praying that with your faith you have it made. It will keep you going. You may not think you have it made, you may feel bad, you may have headaches, toe aches, whatever, back aches, stomach aches, but it’s soul. It’s soul. The soul is clean from top to bottom. It will tell you in a way to get it clean if you do not believe it is. Go to confession do it right at the healing mass, go to communion and say the “Life Offering Prayer, Sacrament”. That will do it. Every sin you ever committed that will take away, every sin and any time in purgatory. How many people you think know that? How many people have been told that? It’s a matter of work. It’s a matter of explanation according to God’s word not our words. “THIS IS MY BODY’ that is God’s word. That’s a word we carry on. “THIS IS MY BLOOD”. It’s God’s word. It’s not this represents this, its grape juice, etc. Although grape juice, I think, its Welch’s, can be used by priests who are extremely alcoholic. They have permission to use that because they found out you can’t get all the alcohol out of a grape. So, you are still drinking alcohol when you are drinking grape juice.

“If God so clothes the grass of the field, which grows today and is thrown in the oven tomorrow, will he not much more provide for you?” Do you have faith to believe that? Do you have faith to know that you can go to God through the Church? Speaking to these Catholics now, you can go to God through other ways too, through your heart. That is the most important thing to anybody, anyway. “Will he not much more provide for you, O you of little faith?” That’s Jesus saying that, “O you of little faith”. I know that I did not have the faith that I have had before, but I still have a lot more to go. A whole lot more and I only know when I am almost done because I can’t figure it out anymore. It all comes down. I’ve got to that point though where knowledge comes down, it does not go up. And we can all get there in different ways, no matter what you do, washing dishes, cleaning the house, scrubbing the floors, cleaning the yard, working your job, whatever. All of that is faith, if you want it to be.   Although it’s a means of the grace of faith and it gives us some faith and the grace of faith. Faith is I believe, believe what? The grace of faith is I believe in God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. I believe they are perfect and they can answer, but they can only answer the way we are or they can answer at someone else’s request that we get better.

Do not worry and say, “What are we to eat?” or ”What are we to drink?” or “What are we to wear?” You know those questions are asked quiet a bit in our society. Do you know there is a place in Africa where they were surrounded in a circle and you put water and mud and something else and made little biscuits just to eat something for their stomach? Yes, who do you think will answer to God for that? It’s somebody’s fault. I am not saying it’s you’ll fault, but somebody’s fault, some government’s fault.

We are not just suppose to give to the poor because the poor who gives to the poor because they’re us. And by giving we get. That’s the important thing, remember, maybe only five dollars, but that’s all we got that is all we need. It’s not how much. It’s the attitude of faith, mercy, love and forgiveness. Those are the four elements.

All these things the pagans seek. Pagans, those who don’t believe in God, those who don’t have the faith in God, they are going to seek all of this and they do, but they don’t have any faith, but grace. Now there are people who have faith with grace who seek him too. And that’s what poses (imperfection?), but don’t get me wrong you’ve got to have money, but I mean there is a little to share. And if you can and you got money you got trouble.

Your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. He knows that you need those things, but at the same time, you know you don’t have to keep them all either. Have you ever seen a hearse with a gold coin carrying the guy’s stuff with him to his grave, his money and everything? They might as well do that because that’s the way he lived. That is the people that I am talking about.

“But seek first the kingdom of God.” You seek that first with I love you, I believe in you because you are God and you’re perfect and I am imperfect; but I can grow in perfection by having faith and loving you. You are not ever going to be perfect until you get to heaven. That’s where we all want to go, I hope.   “Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be given you besides?” His righteousness is aware of this thing here, what you are doing now and that makes you happy. There is no such thing, as I’ve never seen a billionaire hardly exempt.

“Do not worry about tomorrow; tomorrow is going to take care of itself.” Yesterday is gone.   As soon as we have been forgiven or we have forgiven and have done God’s will in a way. It is sufficient for a day is its own evil. Sufficient for today is its own evil. That is kind about what we are going to do on this earth. That is about the way it is and you can thank all the laws of the Church, the commands and all of this. You know, you didn’t have a Catholic Church really just like you have now until sixteenth – fifteenth century. I mean it was in much worse shape than it is now because they did not have a way to communicate with each other except by horse or boat. So you see now we are aware of our problems. We’re really aware of it. So that is good. Now comes the choice, do I just refuse to believe that? Yes. Are you at the point to believe that? Yes. There’s still two choices, one goes to heaven, one goes to hell.

 

WHAT IS SOAKING PRAYER?

Soaking prayer is a prayer of the Holy Spirit based on Mk. 8:22-25 where Jesus healed the blind man of Bethsaida by touching him twice. The first time Jesus touched the man’s eyes his vision improved, though his eyesight was not completely restored until the man was touched by Jesus the second time.

God the Father has designated the use of soaking prayer as a very simple means of healing each other in Church, in the home, or in hospitals – not just healing them for their earthly lives but giving them an experience of the love of God.

Soaking prayer is the infusion of the Holy Spirit through different layers of your personal history for healing so that over time you will be able to see yourself as God sees you. Soaking prayer takes time. It is an organic process. Soaking prayer affects one as does a laser. If steadily applied, it goes deeper and deeper into the person, body and soul. Over time it penetrates through the layers of the inner-self. When it penetrates deeply, the love you have for God and for your soul comes back up through your senses healing your body and your spirit. The soul feeds the body, and the person grows with the grace of God and will exude the grace of God. Soaking prayer goes into the person like an IV treatment of the Holy Spirit. This healing treatment goes into the brain, through the whole body, and into the soul. The Holy Spirit descends and transmits healing grace and life through the brain and then into the self. Soaking prayer is an extension of the power of God’s love into a person’s spirit and soul. As the spirit and soul of a person is healed in God’s love through soaking prayer, the person grows into accepting and loving God’s will.

Thus soaking prayer is an anointing of the Holy Spirit, administered through the laying on of hands for an indefinite period of time. This type of prayer is Spirit-led and is meant to give a gradual healing. Improvement comes prayer by prayer. Soaking prayer can be given on a random, daily, bi-weekly, weekly, bi-monthly, or monthly basis, depending upon the need. This can be determined through discernment in prayer and good judgment according to the needs of the one receiving and the one giving soaking prayer.

 

THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF SOAKING PRAYER IS TO RESTORE THE SOUL TO ITS

ORIGINAL BEAUTY AND PURITY OF THE DAY IT WAS BAPTIZED

 

A WORD ABOUT OUR WOUNDEDNESS

At Baptism our souls were made pure. God, who created us for Himself, instilled in us a deep desire for closeness with Him, our family, and with others. We longed to love and to be loved. As time went on we may have become negatively affected by some of the experiences of our home lives and by our negative experience in the world. Some of these negative experiences aided our inability to make good moral judgments resulting in poor choices (personal sin). Other negative experiences were the result of circumstances beyond our control which may have left us with painful memories and areas of unhealed emotion. These experiences may have caused us to feel toxically shamed. Over time toxic shame changed our areas of unhealed emotion into areas of “hardness of heart” or unforgiveness.

We may have developed negative “soul ties” to others through immoral or amoral relationships which became stumbling blocks to growth in our faith walk with God. These negative “soul ties” frustrated our desire for close and lasting relationships, deepening our pain and increasing our inability to overcome our negative past. Over time we accumulated layer upon layer of pain, shame, embarrassment, anger, guilt and frustration. These feelings empowered our unforgiveness and are types of woundedness. We all have experienced these feeling on some level.

These painful memories, attached to our woundedness, are stored away by the brain in an effort to find happiness and balance in our daily lives. Not all of these memories, though, are stored by the brain in our subconscious. The brain can sometimes transfer and store these painful memories in different parts of the body. These are called “body memories”. Besides our normal emotional responses, when under stress we may experience physical symptoms such as a stiff neck, headaches, back or shoulder pain, etc. because of “body memories”. Through soaking prayer, the infusion of the Holy Spirit seeps down into the person’s mind and soul healing one layer of woundedness, one painful memory, one unhealed emotion, one sin at a time. The Holy Spirit “soaks it up” to the Cross releasing “body memories”, and will continue doing this until the person is fully healed. Results come as God peels away the layers within us. He works within, healing and strengthening us. By removing our resistance to His healing grace we allow God to make us whole and feel His Presence in the depth of our soul. We experience the love He has for us on the cross.

To assist the Holy Spirit in our healing, we must firmly reject all that does not bear the mark of peace in our lives. It takes a firm act of the will to rid ourselves of negative attachments. Sometimes we are not even aware of our attachments. Opening our heart to God’s light and grace in our personal prayer life will assist in the release to these attachments. Our ongoing inner healing is vital to the ministry of soaking prayer. It is Our Lady’s intention to rise up many people who know the Holy Spirit through the gifts of prayer and gifts of healing.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS IN ADMINISTRATION OF SOAKING PRAYER

You have “entered in” the life of the Spirit and are now progressing in your faith walk with the Lord and His mother. You have received this teaching in your heart and have yourself been the recipient of soaking prayer. You are now qualified to administer soaking prayer if you feel led by the Lord. Prepare your heart and soul prior to ministry. Seek the sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist. Offer mass or a holy hour for those to whom you will bring God’s anointing through soaking prayer. Ask the Lord to grant you compassion for His people, that you may see others as He sees them.

Remember that in Soaking Prayer you are the conduit of the Holy Spirit. Therefore soaking prayer is Spirit-led and both the person giving and the one receiving prayer should be open to the healing power of the Holy Spirit.

Spiritual protection should be prayed for all concerned each and every time you engage in soaking prayer. The Whole Armor of God is an excellent prayer taken from Ephesians 6:10-18 where we ask him to place His armor upon us as we go into the battle for souls. The Anima Christi unites us in the divinity and passion of Christ. These prayers are found on the last page of this teaching and provide strong protection.

When your prayers of protection are in place, silence reigns. This is a social ministry done one-on-one in silence. The receiver of soaking prayer may sit in a pew or in a chair unless they are bedridden due to illness. The administrator (conduit) of the soaking prayer will sit, stand or kneel behind the one receiving soaking prayer and lay their hands on the back of the neck and shoulders, or upper back of the person. The area of the heart and lungs on the back is also a good choice of where to lay hands. In case of a bedridden recipient, the administrator may stand or sit next to the bed and gently touch the recipient’s hand, arm or shoulder and begin praying in silence. Some who seek soaking prayer choose to not be touched. In these cases the administrator will extend their hands toward the person and begin praying. Continue with the laying of hands or the extending of hands as the person is comfortable.

  1. Invite the Holy Spirit to “enter in” and heal this person. This anointing is administered quietly. Romans 8:26 “for we do not know how to pray as we ought…” If you feel led to pray in your native language or in tongues, it must be done silently.
  2. Feeling warmth or heat coming from the hands of the one giving prayer is a common charism of soaking prayer. The absence of this charism is not to be taken as the absence of the action of the Holy Spirit. This charism is given according to the will and desire of the Holy Spirit. The quality of the anointing is never to be judged by the degree of heat felt in the hands during soaking prayer. A powerful anointing can be given with little to no effect sensed by the administrator.

Soaking prayer ends when the conduit of the prayer feels an interior “disconnect” with the recipient of soaking prayer. Be rather cautious about this. In soaking prayer, the Holy Spirit may flow through you in discernible “waves”. You may be able to feel the ebb and flow of the Holy Spirit as He moves through you into the person receiving soaking prayer. It is when this ebb and flow stops that the anointing is finished for that time. Sometimes the ebb and flow is barely discernible. During these times you interiorly “know” or “sense” that the action of the Holy Spirit is complete.

  1. The power of the Holy Spirit may be felt by both the one giving and the one receiving prayer. This is dependent upon the will of God and the openness of the one giving or receiving prayer.
  2. Sometimes we may pick up in our spirit the pain, woundedness or tension of the person receiving this anointing. This may be the work of the Holy Spirit, recalling to the mind of this person a memory he would have him surrender to Him for healing, or calling him to forgiveness in a situation. If you discern through the Holy Spirit that the one receiving soaking prayer has deep woundedness beyond your capacity to minister, gently remove your hands, thus ending the soaking prayer. You may then suggest the person seek counsel with a priest or other professional.
  3. Refrain from thinking of people categorically such as “the one with the emotional problems”, “the one with leg problems”, or “the one who has come for prayer many, many times”. Be patient with the sick and with their healing. Soaking prayer takes time.
  4. Administering soaking prayer can be done in the constraints of a prayer meeting.

 

 

Don’t Invite Any “Angels” Into Your Home Until You Know Who They Are – and Who they Aren’t

One of our readers was kind enough to send us an e-mail she received which offered her an opportunity to invite three “angels” into her life for five days. Believe it or not, people are actually falling for this and going through all the prescribed rituals to allow these unnamed spirits into their lives!

These so-called angels are referred to as The Gift, which derived from a German medium named Irma who claims they were channeled to her after she watched the movie, “Pay It Forward.” This movie was about a troubled 11 year-old boy named Trevor (Haley Joel Osment) whose teacher (Kevin Spacey) asks him to come up with a practical way to make the world better and to put it into action. Trevor comes up with the notion of Pay It Forward, which is to do a favor for three people without being asked, then ask them to do the same for three others.

Irma apparently decided that sending occult spirits to her friends would make the world a better place. Calling them “angels,” she claims they can help recipients “take part in raising the consciousness of the planet by beginning with your innermost sacred desires.” These “angels” can also help to accelerate the recipient’s “personal growth and awareness” and will help with any “project/evolution” needed during the five day period. At the end of this time, they are to send the “angels” to three others.

A small ceremony must take place to welcome the “angels” which consists of setting up a special place in the home to erect a shrine. This altar must contain a white candle which the recipient has blessed, a white flower, three prayer requests written down and put in an envelope, with an apple (yes, an apple) placed on top of the envelope.

“Before you greet the Angels, light the candle and tend to it while the Angels stay with you,” the e-mail reads. “If the candle should finish, start a new one. Keep a white candle burning while they are with you. You can put it out when you are not home and re-light or light another one when you return; just bless it again. At the agreed time (when I release the Angels to you) you open the door (literally) and welcome the Angels by saying:

“Welcome Angels that have been sent to me. Please, come in! Thank you for coming here and blessing all the people that I come in contact with and that enter my home. Thank you for choosing me and my loved ones to spread the blessings of joy, love, wisdom and accelerated growth and evolution. Thank you for assisting me and manifesting my three prayers that lay on my heart.”

On the day the “angels” leave, the recipient is to open the door and send them off  to the three people chosen to receive them, who in turn open their door and welcome them at the same time.

The e-mail includes a kind of testimony from the “angels” in which they claim to desire only to “grace everyone’s lives with a taste of Divine love, grace and the blessings of God.”

They go on to describe their “energy” as subtle, gentle and powerful. “It seeks the low places like water to nurture, correct and allow healing energy to grow.”

They claim to be non-judgmental spirits who are only interested in helping people. “So enjoy and relax. Take in our love. Do not be afraid of any piles of dust in the corners of your house, your psyche or your soul. We will lovingly help you clean them up.”

Calling themselves the “wash maidens of the earth”, they claim they want to be respectful of our “Divine nature” and only come into people’s homes in order to “let grace have a face.”

“We love co-creating the world you want to create. The energy of your desires and needs comes from you but we often provide the horsepower to give you the edge energetically to make it happen with more ease and grace. Our work is as simple as this.”

First of all, there’s no such thing as a helping angel who is at the beck and call of human beings. Angels do not respond to the command of mediums; they are pure spirits who are at the command of God alone.

“Christ is the center of the angelic world. They are his angels: ‘When the Son of man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him. They belong to him because they were created through and for him: ‘for in him all things were created in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or authorities – all things were created through him and for him.’ They belong to him still more because he has made them messengers of his saving plan: ‘Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to serve, for the sake of those who are to obtain salvation?’” (Catechism No. 331)

You can be sure that whoever – or whatever – Irma is sending around are not angels of God. Anyone who invites them into their home does so at their own risk.

               Luke   Chapter   1

              By Rev. Thomas Mac Smith

I want to go through today what I think we need to get a concept of around Christmas time.  I want to go through three things that happened in scripture and are going to happen. Why Jesus came?  He came to proclaim the gospel.  He was the gospel.  He came himself.  He came to heal the sick and he came to deliver us from evil.  Well that last one, he’s got a job on his hands because this is the war.  This is it.  That has lasted for five hundred years.

In Genesis, when God said ok I am going to send another woman.  I will send “The Woman” and she is going to give you a savior in a way.  What He really said was she is going to take away all the effects of original sin and crush satan’s head at the end.  That kept on going.  She was immaculately conceived in actual history, but it’s already predicated by God the Father in his mind.  Because of the merits of Jesus Christ on the cross, he could borrow from them.  Do you want to know why?   There is no time with God.  Do you know you and I are in heaven or hell right now in his mind?  It’s a scary thought, isn’t it?  That’s what we’re dealing with.  It is a happy thought in faith, but we have to work for it.  We have all the things they are and that’s why healing is so important.  Healing of the heart; getting a person to love God through the heart like Mary does.  That’s why we have the Sacred Heart because that is the only thing important to God.  Where is your heart?  I don’t care what you don’t know.  Where is your heart?  That is so important.  That is why the Church had the homes with the two hearts in it, because the Angel of Death will pass over their house just like he did with the Blood of the Lamb.

We are going to go over various censuses now.  I’ll go into one thing of how Jesus did healing.  How the people reacted.  How many of you have been to Israel?  There is a house in Capernaum that I will tell you about later.

We have the first part of the fulfillment of God’s prophecy in the infancy narrative.  This is during the birth of Jesus and his infancy.  This starts with the announcement and the horn of the Angel Gabriel and the birth of God.   In the days of Herod, King of Judah there was a priest named Zechariah of the priestly division of Abuja.   His wife was from the daughters of Aaron and her name was Elizabeth.  Both were righteous in the eyes of God observing all of the commandments and ordinances of the Lord

1.They had no child.  That is why anybody who wants a child comes up to me because we’re batting about nine hundred on that.  I think I prayed over three hundred twenty women and about three hundred conceived.  It’s a gift that I didn’t know I had.  I told them what to do and told them how to do deliverance and to do genetic family healing, genetic healing, curses all that over that little baby in the Mother’s stomach.  Now we welcome the little child into the world, tell the child how much we love you, tell that child you do not need to be afraid because your Mother is going to be perfectly healthy when you come out.  I can’t wait to see you.  I’ve said that to every pregnant woman I’ve prayed over.  I am just pronouncing the word of God, said yes; she is going to get pregnant.  Hear what the doctor said, she will get pregnant.  We can prove it.  Have you ever been taught about that? Has anyone told you about that?

The Bible says, Elizabeth was barren and both she and her husband Zechariah were advanced in years.  She was about seventy to ninety years old, I think.   Once Zechariah was serving as priest in his division, division’s term before God according to practice of the priestly service, he was chosen by lot to enter the sanctuary of the Lord to burn incense.  That’s why we have incense before mass and prayer.  Then, when all the whole assembly of the people must pray outside at the hour of the incense offering, the Angel of the Lord appeared to him standing in the rite of the altar of incense.  Zechariah was troubled of what he saw and a figure came upon him.  What does the devil say? Fear everything.  What did the angel say?  Do not be afraid.  What did Our Lady tell Juan Gil, visionary from Venezuela? “Do not be afraid”.  That is what she tells you “Don’t be afraid, I am with you”.  God, how am I going to get people to believe that?  I do not know how God will do that.  Your wife, Elizabeth will bear you a son and you shall name him John.  There is no other named John in the Bible.  John, what can’t we call him Jack?  No, John.  You shall name him John and you will have joy and gladness and many will rejoice at this birth.  That’s must have been a beautiful clear night, the stars are shining, the angels were around, even, then, and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit.  Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?  Even from his Mother’s womb, every child I’ve pray over has received the baptism of the Holy Spirit.  That’s why any child that’s aborted or dies or martyred goes straight to heaven.  I got into a big argument with a theologian one time and when I said that and the theologian said,”No, they are going to hell or purgatory or limbo”.  I told him God would not allow somebody who is not responsible to wonder about like a piece of meat and he said ‘I never thought about that”.  I said, “Please do think more”.  So that is what happens, that child goes straight to heaven even in a miscarriage etc.  If you have a miscarriage, you have a baby up there in heaven.  It’s your own with your own blood, with the grace of God inside of you.  It is so hard when people come to me and say I had three miscarriages and I say, yes, you have three children up there waiting for you and one on the way.  It’s going to stay with you.  They ask is it a boy or a girl?  Well, I do not know.  I just know what the word of God says.

And he will turn and many of the children of Israel to the Lord their God.  Or we going to turn anybody to the Lord our God or are we going to sit down and do nothing.  If you want to stay home, pray.  Everybody should have a little altar and pray.  It is so powerful.  Because why?  God said it. You had to do it.   And he said you have to do it, he will give you the means to do it.

He will go before him in spirit and the power of Elijah.  The power of Elijah to turn the hearts of the fathers toward children, fathers?   What fathers?   Forty percent of the children do not have a father.  So, who will take your place?  God the Father.   It’s going to come, even the politicians recognize this.

To turn the hearts of the fathers toward children and the disobedient to the understanding of the righteous to prepare a people for the Lord; Why?  I am an old man and my wife is advanced in years, he says.  An angel said to him in reply, “And Gabriel who stands before God, I was sent to speak to you and to announce to you this good news.  And now you will be speechless and unable to talk until the day these things takes place, because you did not believe the direct word from God.  You did not believe my words which will be fulfilled at the proper time”.  You know it’s easy to say see you Tuesday at 3 p.m.  “Meanwhile, the people were waiting for Zechariah and were amazed that he stayed so long in the sanctuary”.  I mean no one has had that long of a conversation with God that I know of except those listening to Jesus talk.  “Meanwhile, the people waiting for Zachariah were amazed that he stayed, but when he came out, he was unable to speak.  He was dumb.  He came against the word of God, he was dumb.   And God punished him that way because he knew what he did wrong.  He is not going to do that to people who don’t know.  When he came out, he realized he had seen a vision in the sanctuary; he was gesturing to them as he stepped out, but remained mute.  Then, when his days of ministering were completed, he went home.  After this time, his wife Elizabeth conceived and she went into seclusion for five months saying, so, as the Lord has done for me at a time when he has seen fit to take away my disgrace before others”.

God wants me to pray over every pregnant woman.  If God doesn’t do it, he has a reason or the people do not believe.  They get mute.   Abortion, if people really believe this thing, how many people would do where they could not stop abortions, right here with God.

I’m talking to the wrong people, I know that right now, but I want you to understand if you do not want to give to someone else what you have inside of you and your faith to live by.   I’ll stand on this with my life, I swear that to God.   I sworn to him and Michael the Archangel came and make me do it again.

About two years ago.   The last time was in Venezuela and painted a tremendous vision on the wall.  There is a mystic that’s painted over in Venezuela, the lady did her homework, and I don’t think she knew what she was doing.

In comes what, the next big event, the next announcement.  “Your wife will conceive, she will bear a son, his name is John and he is going to be filled with the Holy Spirit at the sixth month.  Do you want to know why?  Who is it that comes to the Mother of my Lord?  Mary.   And John leaps in Elizabeth’s womb at that time”.

“In the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God to the town of Galilee called Nazareth to a virgin, betrothed to a man named Joseph, who prayed all the time because she had only grace.  She did not have any evil at all so all she did all the time was pray.  Of the house of David, the virgin’s name was Mary or as the Hebrew says (Marih).  Coming to her he said, Ave Maria Gracias.  The Immaculate Conception again, right?  They did not have baptism in those days.  Hail full of grace, hail highly favored- one, the Lord is with you now inside of you.  She was greatly troubled and a very humble person.  Mary asked a very rational question, how am I going to do this?  I do not have even a boyfriend, but you see the angel went over that.  She was greatly troubled when it was said and pondered what a greeting might be “.  The angel said to her,” Do not be afraid”.  Here we go again, when it’s coming from God and when it comes from not being afraid, it’s God.  When it coming like that, you better watch out; you have to learn about the enemy.

She was greatly troubled at what was said and pondered what sort of greeting this might be. The angel read her mind.   Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary for you has found favor with God.  Behold you will conceive in your womb and bear a son and you shall name him Jesus, (Yeshuwa.)   (Yeshuwa) means God with us who saves in Hebrew.   He will be great and he will be called Son of the Most High.  And the Lord God will give him the throne of David, his father and he will rule over the house of Jacob forever and of his kingdom there will be no end.  He will rule over the house of Jacob forever.  Mary said to the angel, how can this be since I have had no relations with a man?  The Holy Spirit will come upon you, the power of the Most High will overshadow you.  Therefore, the child to be born will be called Holy, the Son of God.  Therefore and behold Elizabeth, your relative has also conceived a son in her old age, estimated between 70 and 90 years old; And this is her sixth month for her  who was called barren. Mary said,” Behold I am the handmaid of the Lord.  May it be done to me according to your word”.  And the angel disappears.

Mary goes to see Elizabeth.  During those days, Mary sat out and traveled to the hill country in haste tothe town in Judah, where she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth.  Remember, she was his wife.  Elizabeth says here you are most blessed among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb.  How did she know that?  So how does this happen to me that the Mother of my Lord should come to me.  My God what love, so much love.  How does this happen to me?  We all can ask ourselves that question.  Why do I have the faith and somebody on the other side of the room does not know Jesus?  Why does this happen to me? How?  Because God said so, it all has to do with generations.  For the moment the sound of her greeting reached my ears, the infant in my womb leap for joy.  Blessed are you who believe that was spoken to you by the Lord God would be fulfilled.  So she identified her and then she says”my soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord.  My spirit rejoices in God my savior for he has looked upon his handmaid’s lowliness and behold from now on all ages will call me blessed.  The Mighty One has done great things for me and holy is his name.  His mercy is from age to age to those who fear him”.  You show might with his arm as dispersed to arrogant of the mind and heart.  That’s going to come.  He has thrown down the rulers from their thrones to be lifted up to the lowly.  The hungry he has filled with good things and to the rich he has sent away empty.  He does not mean people who have will, he means greedy people.  He has helped Israel his servant, remembering his mercy.  According to his promise to our fathers, this is the Catholic Church now and to Abraham and his descendants.   Mary remained with Elizabeth about three months and then returned to her home.

The birth of Jesus comes in Chapter 2 of Luke.   You would have Christmas Eve, in those days, a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that the whole world should be enrolled for taxes.   Joseph and Mary went up from Galilee from the town of Nazareth to Judea, to the city of David that is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David to be enrolled.  While they were there, the time came for Mary to give birth to her firstborn son.  She wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.  How many people are saying that now?  He has a place, it’s on the altar, and it’s called”Perpetual Adoration”.  When you get in the aurora of God so strong, your mind and your soul can carry right inside that lieu to the Blessed Sacrament, the monstrance.  You will be present with him that way.  That’s why you see some saints kneel in lieu of the Blessed Sacrament for hours because they are not there, they are in there.  We have this saying in The Canticle of Zechariah that Zechariah, John‘s father filled with the Holy Spirit prophesied “Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel”.  This is what every priest says every morning in his breviary.  “For he has visited and brought redemption to his people; He has raised up a horn for our salvation within the house of David his servant even as he promised through the mouth of his holy prophets from of old: salvation from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us”.  Listen well because there are a whole lot of them around.  It’s not just Catholics; it’s anybody who has anything to do with Jesus Christ.  “To showmercy to our fathers and to be mindful of his holy covenant to baptize; and to the oath he swore to Abraham our father, and to grant us that rescue from the hand of enemies, without fear we might worship him in holiness and righteousness before him all our days.  And you, child, will be called Prophet of the Most High, for you will go before the Lord to prepare his ways, to give his people knowledge of salvation through the forgiveness of sins, because the tender mercy of our God by whom the daybreak from on high will visit us to shine on those who sit in darkness and death’s shadow, to guide our feet into the paths of peace.   After the child grew and became strong in spirit, and he was in the desert until the day of his manifestation to Israel”.  Read that for Christmas.  Read it every day and let it become part of you and watch how you feel in January.   MERRY CHRISTMAS!

 

 

 

THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION by Mac Smith

A Given Salvation Historical Fact

No Mary——No Jesus

The evolution of the women in the Bible culminates with the Immaculate Conception, which is the conception of Mary without original sin. The conception of the Son of God, Jesus, by a virgin and becoming the nature of the flesh of man in the womb of the blessed Virgin Mary and the Incarnation, “and the Word became flesh” could not have happened without the Immaculate Conception of Our Blessed Mother, Queen of Heaven and Earth.

The main focus of this article is the biblical evolution of the Blessed Virgin Mary. How someone cannot be aware of the Blessed Virgin Mary’s prophetic quest, in its own sense, a denial of how and why Jesus Christ (the Son of God, Incarnate) from the Book of Genesis (which contained the prophecy of the Woman and her seed) to the Immaculate Conception, to the virgin birth (the fruit of her womb, Jesus) is incomprehensible to me. Why is Mary important to Christianity? St. Theresa of Calcutta answered this very question to a Baptist donor —-“No Mary —- No Jesus!”

To see Mary’s importance we need to go where the creation of man and woman originated and just take the Holy Bible, so sacred, with a literal translation. The scriptures show us the truth about Mary’s importance.

From Genesis 3:1 to the Book of Revelation

Let’s start with Luke. (1:26-27) “Fear not, Mary, you have found grace with God.” (Luke 1-30) The same angel was sent to comfort Joseph. (Matthew 1-20) Then comes John (1:46), and the key word here is Nazareth, which means a flower or a seed. This flower was communicated to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (especially Isaiah) and it should flower at this time and bring forth the fruit of the woman’s womb, who is our savior. We should also note at this point that Galilee means “transformation.” It is aptly named for all the seeds and fruits of the Old Testament are transformed into reality when the Savior appeared (Matthew 18:3) from of an immaculately-conceived virgin.

So from Matthew, (18:3) we go back to Luke. (2:48)

Luke tells us that Jesus was with Mary and Joseph and was subject to them. What? A woman would find the Christ child in the temple and would give the son of God a command to come back with her and Joseph.  He was subject to her and his foster father, Joseph. (Luke 2:51) God became subject to man. That God should obey a woman is a conclusion beyond parallel. That the son of God should obey a woman’s command is a glory beyond compare.  It is all in the Holy Bible.

Mary’s diverse motherhood is found in these passages. (Luke l:43 and John 2:11) In the Gospels, she is called “the Mother of Jesus.” Mary is acclaimed by Elizabeth at the prompting of the “Spirit” as the mother of my Lord” even before the birth of her son, Jesus, the Son of God. This person, Jesus, who was conceived as a man by the Holy Spirit, and who would truly become her son according to the flesh (“and the Word became flesh,”) was none other than the Father’s eternal Son, the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity.

I want to stress here that Jesus is not part God and part man. Jesus is the Son of God, by nature, and not by adoption. The Son is begotten of the same substance (homoousios) as the Father. Therefore Jesus is separately the Son of God who, without ceasing, became a man and our brother, because he was “conceived by the Holy Spirit.” Refer for the above: Philippians 2:5-8, Letter to the Hebrews 10:5-7, and John 4:2.

Therefore, the Annunciation to Mary is her inauguration to “the fullness of time.” Galatians 4:4, Luke 1:34.

Biblically we have Eve, Sarah, Ruth, etc. on to the Annunciation, “Hail full of Grace.” The Father ordained from the foundation of the world the woman who was immaculately conceived, because the nature of God the Son could not be tainted with original sin. Not only was Mary, by necessity, conceived without sin, she also gave birth as a virgin, to the fruit of her womb, Jesus.

Our Lady became the fulfillment of Eve (prototype,) the New Ark of the Covenant, the new Eve, the fulfillment of the prototype of the Queen Mother. Refer to Psalm 45, the royal enthronement psalm. It was not the wife of the King, but the Queen Mother, who was seated at the right hand of the King. Also Mary is the fulfillment of the prototype Ark of the Covenant. The prototype can never be greater than its fulfillment.

Therefore only a virgin immaculately conceived could make the “fullness of time” of God’s eternal plan of salvation.

HAIL MARY! FULL OF GRACE

Yes. No Mary, no Jesus is the beginning of the fullness of time.

 

Letter to the people of Venezuela

By Thomas “Mac” Smith

 

Venezuela:   Have faith I have not forsaken you, you are a nation loved by God, and you are the nation chosen yesterday and today to be as Our Lady The Most Precious Blood states so many times, “The gateway to be my evangelization to Latin America.”  I say to you today, that you with Our Lady The Most Precious Blood will defeat satan, whose time is short because God loves you and needs your faith.  I love you Venezuela and in the past ten years I have prayed over thousands of you in every state in Venezuela.  You have become my family, even though I am just one human being, a servant of the Lord.  I miss you, my fellow souls of Venezuela. I miss you very much.

One of the “Red Dragons” is dead.  Many of his disciples with the help of another country are trying to strip you of your identity.  Not So!  They cannot take your faith from you.  They cannot take away God’s love for you.  Each one of you are a child of God, individually created never to be imitated.  You have seen the healing power of God that has touched many of you, the miracles and the messages from the Mother of the Son of God.  If you have read some of the messages given by Our Lady about the people of Venezuela you can have nothing but hope.  Pray constantly for each other.  That mountain (Mt. Torres) is our victory sign, and it will be until God says otherwise.  Together, we have climbed the Mountain and placed Our Lady The Most Precious Blood and The Cross she designed.  Her statue and The Cross she designed cast a ray of hope over all of Venezuela and Latin America, prophetically, as the gate way to Latin America.  I will come back, God willing, to experience the miracle, to evangelize Latin America.  Our Lady The Most Precious Blood “Rosary of the Armada” and the mission of The Blood of the Lamb given to me by God The Father,  by The Eternal Father’s design will sail and drive satan to the very gates in the sea of hell; All of this is documented on www.thebloodofthelamb.net.  Look and you will see how far we have come with all this grace and development of the apparition  site on the Mountain with God The Father’s house. (Church).  When God acts, his prophecy in Venezuela, this will come to pass.

Meanwhile, let us keep each other in prayer.  I will be in touch and I, with God’s will, will be back as soon as Our Lady permits.

Meanwhile, let us keep each other in prayer.  I will be in touch and I, with God’s will, will be back as soon as Our Lady permits.

To close I am inserting a section from Our Lady The Most Precious Blood apparition message in Ville Platte on Monday, April 7, 2014.

“We link Ville Platte, Louisiana and Plaisance, St. Ann’s Church in Frilot Cove, Louisiana, linking to Venezuela, who is undergoing tremendous pain right now suffering for all of you and the rest of the world.   People are being murdered, priests are being shot, they are keeping people from getting food and the Communists are trying to take over.  I say, as The Mother the Immaculate Conception, and The  Mother of Jesus Christ and all mankind, satan and his allegiances will be defeated, and the Communist are trying to take by way of Venezuela, all of Latin America.  Not So! Not So!  This will not happen.  I have promised, I have come for ten years to Venezuela and, I did not come to see the devil win that country.  Evil will be defeated and Venezuela will be forever free.”

Thank you for answering my call.

OLMPB request fasting

In a recent prophesy of Our Lady the Most Precious Blood , Our Lady ask that we fast one day a week on bread and water. Eat bread and water for breakfast and lunch and eat a regular meal for supper. She wants us to do this so that what She wants done will be done.

 

Teaching on Soaking Prayer as Given by Our Lady of the Most Precious Blood through Her Messages and by Thomas “Mac” Smith

Our Lady has encouraged us to learn about “soaking prayer” so as to use this type of healing prayer in ministry.  What, one may ask, is soaking prayer, why is it necessary and how do I prepare myself and use it in ministry?

WHAT IS SOAKING PRAYER?

Soaking prayer is a prayer of the Holy Spirit based on Mk. 8: 22-25 where Jesus healed the blind man of Bethsaida by touching him twice.  The first time Jesus touched the man’s eyes his vision improved though his eyesight was not completely restored until the man was touched by Jesus the second time.

God the Father has designated the use of soaking prayer as a very simple means of healing each other  in church, in the home or in hospitals-not just healing them for their earthly lives but giving them an experience of the love of God.

Soaking prayer is the infusion of the Holy Spirit through different layers of your personal history for healing so that over time you will be able to see yourself as God sees you.  Soaking prayer takes time.  It is an organic process. Soaking prayer affects one as does a laser.  If steadily applied, it goes deeper and deeper into the person, body and soul. Over time it penetrates through the layers of the inner-self.  When it penetrates deeply, the love you have for God and for your soul comes back up through your senses healing your body and your spirit.  The soul feeds the body, and the person grows with the grace of God and will exude the grace of God.

Soaking prayer goes into the person like an IV treatment of the Holy Spirit. This healing treatment goes into the brain, through the whole body, and into the soul.  The Holy Spirit descends and transmits healing grace and life through the brain and then into the self.  Soaking prayer is an extension of the power of God’s Love into a person’s spirit and soul.  As the spirit and soul of a person is healed in God’s Love through soaking prayer, the person grows into accepting and loving God’s Will.

Thus soaking prayer is an anointing of the Holy Spirit, administered through the laying on of hands for an indefinite period of time.  This type of prayer is Spirit-led and is meant to give a gradual healing.  Improvement comes prayer by prayer.  Soaking prayer can be given on a random, daily, bi-weekly, weekly, bi-monthly, or monthly basis, depending upon the need.  This can be determined through discernment in prayer and good judgment according to the needs of the one receiving and the one giving soaking prayer.

 

THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF SOAKING PRAYER IS TO RESTORE THE SOUL TO ITS ORIGINAL BEAUTY AND PURITY OF THE DAY IT WAS BAPTIZED.

A WORD ABOUT OUR WOUNDEDNESS

At Baptism our souls were made pure.  God, Who created us for Himself, instilled in us a deep desire for closeness with Him, our family and with others.  We longed to love and to be loved.   As time went on we may have become negatively affected by some of the experiences of our home lives and by our negative experiences in the world.  Some of these negative experiences aided our inability to make good moral judgments resulting in poor choices (personal sin).  Other negative experiences were the result of circumstances beyond our control which may have left us with painful memories and areas of unhealed emotion.  These experiences may have caused us to feel toxically shamed. Over time toxic shame changed our areas of unhealed emotion into areas of “hardness of heart” or unforgiveness.

We may have developed negative “soul ties” to others through immoral or amoral relationships which became stumbling blocks to growth in our faith walk with God.  These negative “soul ties” frustrated our desire for close and lasting relationships, deepening our pain and increasing our inability to overcome our negative past.  Over time we accumulated layer upon layer of pain, shame, embarrassment, anger, guilt and frustration.  These feelings empowered our unforgiveness and are types of woundedness.  We all have experienced these feelings on some level.

These painful memories, attached to our woundedness, are stored away by the brain in an effort to find happiness and balance in our daily lives.  Not all of these memories, though, are stored by the brain in our subconscious.  The brain can sometimes transfer and store these painful memories in different parts of the body.  These are called “body memories”.  Besides our normal emotional responses, when under stress we may experience physical symptoms such as a stiff neck, headaches, back or shoulder pain, etc. because of “body memories”.

Through soaking prayer, the infusion of the Holy Spirit seeps down into the person’s mind and soul healing one layer of woundedness, one painful memory, one unhealed emotion, one sin at a time.  The Holy Spirit “soaks it up” to the Cross releasing “body memories”, and will continue doing this until the person is fully healed.  Results come as God peels away the layers within us.  He works within, healing and strengthening us.  By removing our resistance to His healing Grace we allow God to make us whole and feel His Presence in the depth of our soul.  We experience the Love He has for us on the Cross.

To assist the Holy Spirit in our healing we must firmly reject all that does not bear the mark of peace in our lives.  It takes a firm act of the will to rid ourselves of negative attachments.  Sometimes we are not even aware of our attachments.  Opening our hearts to God’s Light and Grace in our personal prayer life will assist in the release of these attachments.  Our ongoing inner healing is vital to the ministry of soaking prayer.  It is Our Lady’s intention to raise up many people who know the Holy Spirit through turning their lives over to Him. Through surrender to the Holy Spirit come the gifts of prayer and the gifts of healing.

 

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS IN ADMINISTRATION OF SOAKING PRAYER

You have “entered in” the Life of the Spirit and are now progressing in your faith walk with the Lord and His mother. You have received this teaching in your heart and have yourself been the recipient of soaking prayer.  You are now qualified to administer soaking prayer if you feel led by the Lord.  Prepare your heart and soul prior to ministry.  Seek the sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist.  Offer mass or a holy hour for those to whom you will bring God’s anointing through soaking prayer.  Ask the Lord to grant you compassion for His people, that you may see others as He sees them.

Remember that in soaking prayer you are the conduit of the Holy Spirit.  Therefore soaking prayer is Spirit-led and both the person giving and the one receiving prayer should be open to the healing power of the Holy Spirit.

Spiritual protection should be prayed for all concerned each and every time you engage in soaking prayer.  The Whole Armor of God is an excellent prayer taken from Ephesians 6: 10-18 where we ask God to place His armor upon us as we go into the battle for souls.  The Anima Christi unites us in the Divinity and Passion of Christ.   These prayers are found on the last page of this teaching and provide strong protection.

When your prayers of protection are in place, silence reigns.  This is a social ministry done one-on-one in silence.   The receiver of soaking prayer may sit in a pew or in a chair unless they are bedridden due to illness.  The administrator (conduit) of the soaking prayer will sit, stand or kneel behind the one receiving soaking prayer and lay their hands on the back of the neck and shoulders, or upper back of the person.  The area of the heart and lungs on the back is also a good choice of where to lay hands. In the case of a bedridden recipient, the administrator may stand or sit next to the bed and gently touch the recipient’s hand, arm or shoulder and begin praying in silence.  Some who seek soaking prayer choose to not be touched.  In these cases the administrator will extend their hands toward the person and begin praying.  Continue with the laying-on of hands or the extending of hands as the person is comfortable.

1). Invite the Holy Spirit to “enter in” and heal this person.  This anointing is administered quietly.    Romans 8:26- “for we do not know how to pray as we ought…”  If you feel led to pray in your native language or in tongues, it must be done silently.

2). Feeling warmth or heat coming from the hands of the one giving prayer is a common charism of soaking prayer.  The absence of this charism is not to be taken as the absence of the action of the Holy Spirit.  This charism is given according to the Will and Desire of the Holy Spirit.  The quality of the anointing is never to be judged by the degree of heat felt in the hands during soaking prayer.  A powerful anointing can be given with little to no effect sensed by the administrator.

3). Soaking prayer ends when the conduit of the prayer feels an interior “disconnect” with the recipient of soaking prayer.  Be rather cautious about this.  In soaking prayer, the Holy Spirit may flow through you in discernable “waves”.  You may be able to feel the ebb and flow of the Holy Spirit as He moves through you into the person receiving soaking prayer.   It is when this ebb and flow stops that the anointing is finished for that time.  Sometimes the ebb and flow is barely discernable.  During these times you interiorly “know” or “sense” that the action of the Holy Spirit is complete.

4). The power or presence of the Holy Spirit may be felt by both the one giving and the one receiving prayer.  This is dependent upon the Will of God and the openness of the one giving or receiving prayer.

5). Sometimes we may pick up in our spirit the pain, woundedness or tension of the person receiving this anointing. This may be the work of the Holy Spirit, recalling to the mind of this person a memory He would have them surrender to Him for healing, or calling them to forgiveness in a situation.  If you discern through the Holy Spirit that the one receiving soaking prayer has deep woundedness beyond your capacity to minister, gently remove your hands, thus ending the soaking prayer.  You may then suggest the person seek counsel with a priest or other professional.

6).   Refrain from thinking of people categorically such as “the one with emotional problems”, “the one with leg problems” or “the one who has come for prayer many, many times”.  Be patient with the sick and with their healing.  Soaking prayer takes time.

7). Administering soaking prayer could be done in the constraints of a prayer meeting.

GEOGRAPHY OF THE JOURNEY OF A SOUL WITH GOD

Our Lady wants us to develop a close personal prayer life with her and especially with her Son.  Without prayer there is no hope.  Without prayer there would be no way to reach God, for prayer is the language between God and the soul He has created.  Outlined below are steps to assist you in deepening your prayer life.  Read through them prayerfully and slowly.  Allow the Holy Spirit to guide your prayer life.  We are always in the process of growing in God’s Grace.

1). Create a sacred place for yourself.  Make it comfortable.  Enter into your “presence of God” place as a servant, just as you are. Our Lady has said that only by being a servant to someone can you understand love, and you can only understand love when you yield to the Holy Spirit and let Him come into your soul.

2). Come into the presence of God.  An example of a prayer to settle yourself:  “You, Jesus, are my Savior; You, Jesus, are my Healer; You, Jesus, are all my Praise.  Come, Lord Jesus.  Come, Holy Spirit.”

3). Ask the Lord to lead you into the quietness of His Presence.  (Ps. 46:11- “Be still and know that I Am God.”).  In the quiet we can receive from the Holy Spirit a “word” not heard with human ears but felt in our hearts-a word of peace or consolation, or sometimes a word of correction.  The Holy Spirit does not judge us.  He lets us know softly where we have gone wrong and encourages us in our good works. God speaks to all of us at times, but we have to listen.

4). Use guided meditation in prayer making use of the mind, memory, and imagination.  Sit quietly and let God come into your soul.  Place yourself in the gospel stories and allow Jesus to minister to you as did His apostles or others He healed.  If you stay focused on the Word of God, Who is Jesus, you cannot stay depressed.

5). Use “Divine Studying” or concentrated reflection on Scripture to learn of the attributes of God.  (Psalms-sometimes called “the Wisdom of God”, Isaiah, Gospel of John, daily Mass readings).

6). Learn to love the Will of God—ask for the grace “to do Your Will”.  An obedient soul is a soul that The Father treasures greatly. Pray to have a teachable spirit. Learn to love His Will, learn to become part of His Will and you will be greatly blessed.  Go to mass and receive Jesus in the Eucharist often.  Confess your sins regularly and be made clean so that the Father can take you in His hand with great pleasure and delight.

7). Seek a pure heart.  Scripture speaks about having a pure heart. (Mt. 5: 8 – the Beatitudes).  A pure heart is a heart that has learned to love the Will of God.  God wants from all of us a pure heart, because a pure heart sees the things of God clearly.  A pure heart is a sacrificial heart.  It is a heart that will lay down its life for God.  Our Lady says that if you have a pure heart, you must pray for those who do not have a pure heart so that they may receive one.

8). Seek a relationship with the Blessed Virgin Mary.  Pray the rosary.  Consecrate yourself to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  Though there is little about Our Lady in The Holy Bible, there are books written from private revelations that can explain about her life and mission on earth.  Ex.: “The Mystical City of God” by Venerable Mary of Agreda; The Life of Mary as Seen by the Mystics by Raphael Brown.

9). Pray for your enemies.  Hold no unforgiveness in your heart for anyone.  We must pray hard to forgive those who have hurt us and even for those who have tried to destroy us.  In the act of forgiving we allow God to soften a hardened area in our heart. This action allows those who have caused us pain to be released from the bondage of our unforgiveness. In Matthew 6: 14-15 Jesus says, “If you forgive the faults of others, your heavenly Father will forgive you yours.  If you do not forgive others, neither will your Father forgive you.”  Soaking prayer brings us to a place where we can readily forgive, opening us up to further inner healing.

10). Look to the saints. Reading the lives of the saints is a highly recommended way to strengthen your prayer life and deepen your faith in the Trinity.

FINAL NOTES

  • Remember, what is given as a deposit in our soul through soaking prayer can never be taken away.
  • Pain and suffering in life do not ever go away completely, but through soaking prayer those giving and those receiving this anointing will experience Peace of soul.
  • Staying protected through prayer, especially The Whole Armor of God Prayer and the Amima Christi, frequent confession, receiving Jesus in the Eucharist and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament are our sustenance in this ministry.
  •    Being disciplined and committed through daily prayer and reflection upon scripture, having a spirit of obedience and a teachable spirit are also necessary.
  • Unforgiveness is the greatest obstacle to God’s Healing Grace therefore forgiveness of others is imperative in this ministry.

Prayers of Protection to be Prayed Before Proceeding with Soaking Prayer

 The Whole Armor of God

In the name of Jesus and by His blood, I put on the helmet of salvation. I put on the breastplate of His righteousness. I put on the girdle of truth. My feet are shod with the preparation of the Gospel of peace. In my left hand I take the shield of faith, wherewith I may quench all the fiery darts of the wicked and in my right hand I take the sword of the Spirit which is God’s Word and I cut myself free from everything that is not of God’s Spirit. I wash my mind in the blood of Jesus and I march behind the barricade of the Cross of Calvary led by His Spirit and cleaned by His blood.                                                                      Father, into Thy hands I commit my spirit, soul and body, in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Anima Christi

Soul of Christ, sanctify me.

Body of Christ, save me.

Blood of Christ, inebriate me.

Water from the side of Christ, wash me.

Passion of Christ strengthen me.

O good Jesus, hear me.  Within Thy wounds, hide me.

Suffer me never to be separated from Thee.

From the malicious enemy defend me.

In the hour of my death call me and bid me come to Thee,

That with Thy saints I may praise Thee forever and ever.  Amen

May God bless you abundantly for participating in this ministry!  By loving what you do for the love of God, you will find that you will have a much more rewarding life.

TEACHING ON THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES AND

THE BOOK OF REVELATION            BY THOMAS MAC SMITH

MAY 16, 2016

 

 

I want to explain about Our Lady’s message tonight because it is very important.  The Book of Revelation and the Acts of the Apostles are the two most important books in the New Testament.  The Acts of the Apostles are the history of the early Church, how it got started and it brings in to date the great things that Jesus did, which of course, was die on the cross; he gave us his body and blood forever, which was the eternal sign forever, that the Church is eternal.  I don’t think people realize that, but it was something Jesus did not have to do.  He could have just died, rose again and saved the world. But he did much more than that,  with the abundance of teachings in the Old Testament and the New Testament, actually the New Testament is the other practical writings that he gave.   And then the writings of Paul and Peter, Titus, the First Corinthians, Second Corinthians are very famous books.  All of these have very important writings in them because they contain the truths of humanity.  They are the real truths.  They weren’t some kind of super-natural truths.  They brought humanity into God.  They brought humanity into salvation and that’s what was important about them.  The gifts of the Holy Spirit and of course, the Holy Spirit came after Jesus ascended to the Father and sits at His right hand and then he will come again to judge the living and the dead at the end of the world.

 

 

 

Then the Holy Spirit came and everything else has been from the Holy Spirit, all the gifts everything really, Jesus’ birth, everything is from the Holy Spirit.  When you look at it and go over it carefully, it is the Holy Spirit that did all of this.  He is in each one of us.   He gave each one of us these gifts and he expects us to not only take the gifts, but also to give them out; to give it to others; to give it to those who have left the Church, which by the way, these Community Churches around the country are mostly Catholics.  They are fallen away Catholics because the Catholics got married again or they got married two or three times.  We are doing everything wrong.  Everything wrong and this has got to stop and it is going to stop.  How it stops and when it stops? I don’t know, but I know we have to keep praying for our own soul and for the souls of those who have fallen away from us.  Because they are going to come back and they are going to come back into Church like a storm.  And behold the priest that tries to stop it.  It’s going to be bad for him.  That is a warning, by the way, that Jesus has given. He also has given out the supreme law, which is to forgive.  To forgive our selves, to forgive those who have left the Church, sin, to forgive them all.  We have to forgive in order for us to be able to have heaven on Earth and heaven in Heaven.  And we can have heaven on earth.  We can’t have it quiet as well as we’ll have when we get there, but we can have it.  If you are in a state of grace right now you’ve got heaven on earth.  Did you know that?  Now your body doesn’t feel it because your body is being punished.  It is always going to be punished until we die and then we resurrect with a new life and then it will begin to roll on, roll on.

 

The Book of Revelation, twenty-three chapters tells the whole story; tells who Jesus is, the Alpha, the Omega, the four horses of the Apocalypse.

 

All of these things are beautiful and we have to be able to get into these in this miserable world because if we don’t, we will be miserable.  We are going to be miserable even when we do, if Satan has anything to do with it.  But he can’t do anything unless we let him do it.

 

People are looking worse than they ever looked; children are born in conditions which make them look terrible. But that is not the way it is always going to be; it is  going to be beautiful, absolutely beautiful.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I sit here and I sit during the day and I sit in my room, then I go out then I come back.  Every one of those steps can be a step toward heaven or a step toward hell.  It’s up to me.  I am not responsible for what you do.  I am responsible for telling you what to do, to suggest ways for you to do it easier, to listen to your problems, but I am not responsible for what you do or who you are.  I am responsible for who I am.  A lot of people go around saving other people and they don’t take responsibility for themselves and they are in trouble.  So we have to pray for them that they realize that they have this gift for themselves, primarily.  It wouldn’t make any sense if God gave this gift to everybody else and didn’t give it to us.  As a person, it would not make any sense at all.  And it wouldn’t be a gift if we didn’t give it from our self to others.

 

 

So you see, no matter how the world is, how bad it is, how crooked people are, how dirty they are, what kind of tricks they pull, it is what we are doing that counts.  In this room, what we doing, that is what counts. Out on the streets, what are they doing? How much are they aware of this themselves? This is what they have to learn from the Church.  This is what they have to learn because if they don’t learn it, we failed.  But if we have done everything we can for ourselves we are automatically going to do it for others and then we will have succeeded.  The most important person in the world today to you and me is us, then comes the rest of the people and that is the way is has to be with everybody. In the Book of Revelation and the Acts of the Apostles, along with the gospels and within it is the story and the means to get there.  Amen

PHILIPPANS 4: 8

 

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy, meditate on these things.

 

JOHN 10: 27

 

My sheep listen to my voice, I know them and they know me.

 

PSALM 16: 11

 

You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at you right hand are pleasures forevermore.

 

NUMBERS 6: 25

 

The Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you.

 

PSALM 73: 23-26

 

Yet I am always with you, you hold me by my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory. Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire but you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

 

PROVERBS 28: 26

 

He who trusts in himself is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom is kept safe.

 

PROVERBS 18: 1O

 

The name of the Lord is a stroong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.

 

 

 

 

Mac discusses a meditation from JESUS TODAY by Sarah Young

 

I am the One who keeps you safe.” That is God. There is nothing we want more than to feel safe.

 

You tend to rely heavily on your thinking and plannibg, as if that is where your security lies.” Remember, a man who trusts himself is a fool.

 

When you start to feel anxious about something, your mind goes into overdrive – searching for solutions, seaarching for security. All the while I am with you, holding you by your right hand.” While we are searching, do we realize where that security lies? The more we realize that , the closer we are to God. The closer we to God, no mater whether it is in life or death or suffering or what, we are safe. We are getting there. We have all our years to love that on earth. Beware of trusting in yourself – which is foolish. Instead, walk in wisdom and you will be kept safe. Because you walk in wisdom, you are walking to learn. That is what wisdom does, it gives you the ability to learn.

 

The essence of wisdom is to trust in Me more than in yourself or other people. I stand ready to guide you with My counsel, so bring all your concerns to Me.” You know, I know a lot of people live this life. I have to be positive about that, but there are a whole lot that don’t. They don’t even want to ohear about it. We have to pray for them. They seek their pleasure in murder, rape, torture, hold-ups and robberies. Then there are others who do a more refined way of just being ini themselves all the time getting what they want. Then there are the others who don’t know what to do. They don’t know what to do. They have to build. All of tem have to build. Every soul is loved by God just as much as He loves us. It is up to us around the people that are brought to us to pray for them. We can do nothing else, but prayer might save their soul.

 

When you are feeling confused, it may be helpful to write out your prayers,…” If you are really confused and you can’t think, it would be good to write your prayers out and read them. Just like that. That sterling part of your awareness will come back. If is doesn’t come back, so what? WE are not God. If it doesn’t come back, then He didn’t give it to us. He gave us to write it out and say prqayers.

 

…asking Me to show you the way forward.” That is the way He goes, forward. He does not go backwards. He does not live in the past. Once we confess our sins it is over except for the state of the Spirit, so remain with it. It can’t get us back in the past.

 

Then wait in My presence, giving Metime to guide your mind while you focus on Me and My word.” This is the Bible, of course. In other words, He is giving people, though we a Bible, it is the Old Testament and the New Testament. That is the one we reaad when we want to know for sure whar He said. The other things are said but the other things are part of tradition which He said to different people all through the ages. That is 2000 years, maybe even 4000 years.i

 

You can whisper, “Jesus”, to help you stay focused.” There is nothing we can add to that. Jesus is a name that embraces all names, all parts of life. Jesus. Treasure that name. Say it over and over again. Jesus. That will help you stay focused. You know, if you can’t think of anything, say Jesus. That is saying it all. His blood and His name.

 

My Name – representing all that I AM – is a strong tower; those who run to it are safe.” I Am that I Am He told Moses. Moses said how am I going to go down and tell that that “I AM” sent me? He said that you just tell them tha what you do came from Me. That is how we do , too, the things we do in our struggles, in our glory, in what we have.

JESUS. I AM. My name representing all that I am is a strong tower. Not power, but tower of strength. All of you who run to it are safe. You are sll safe if you run to that name. That is the name that made a difference in the world. The other religions have things but thay don’t have Jesus.

 

So tonight when you go to bed, just say thaqt name, Jesus. It strikes you. If that is the one word that you can say before you die that will save you, it is that name , JESUS. Amen!
