Tidbits, Timelines and Dates

Padre Pio

For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. 2 Peter 1:21

A word of caution here, I am not a big fan of prophecy chasing.  What I mean by that is I definitely believe in prophecy and I definitely believe in heeding the warnings of prophets.  Especially the warnings of Fatima and Akita.  I believe it is okay to read and ponder all that has been said.   What I don’t believe in is trying to know the future, as if we can exact some measure of control over it.  God is the one in control, not us.  When we try to grasp at that which is not ours to grasp we will get smacked down and humbled.  Every. Single. Time.  At least I do anyway.  Whenever I think I know what God planned, I get shown how I didn’t know.  And how God’s plans are beyond my comprehension.  And when we try to know the future it induces fear and anxiety, which pulls us away from God.  We can have a general idea of things, we can even know possibly some detail, but what we don’t know is much larger.  And it is in not knowing we must hand ourselves over to complete trust.  Mostly when God points something out to me, he tells me to PAY ATTENTION.  I do pay attention, I record what He tells me, but it is often only in hindsight that I get the full meaning of what He was telling me.  There is one thing that He tells me over and over, and that is what He seeks from us is union with His will.  He wants us to walk in trust regardless of the storms around us.  He wants us to guard our hearts from evil, which includes not spitting vitriol at our fellow man, which is so so common these days.  The preparation He wants is Spiritual.  Ask for the Gifts of the Spirit.  Ask for your heart and mind to be guarded and call on the angels to assist you with this.  Saint Michael, in particular, should be called on for guarding your mind against false ideology.

So with that said, I just want to simply point out something God keeps showing me.  It is certain dates and certain things to pray for.  I have no idea what it actually means or when they become very important, but I know God wants me to pay attention to them.  As with all things use prayer and discernment.

First, he has been telling me to pray for Panama for almost three years.  He asked me to start praying before it was announced as the place for World Youth Day.  Why?  I don’t know.  We should always always be praying for our Youth, especially for protection of their innocence.  He also pointed out to me that the Blood Moon happens just before World Youth Day.

He also insistently tells me to pray for the Pope.  That’s a no brainer, we should all be doing that.

The date that most often is pointed out to me is September 23.  That is Saint Padre Pio’s Feast day and the day that he died in 1968.  But it also happens to correspond with the following;

Tradition teaches that John the Baptist was conceived on September 23.  He was the prophet who paved the way for Christ.

On September 23, 1973, 5 years after Padre Pio’s death, the Statue of Mary started weeping in Akita, Japan. 

On September 23, 2017, we saw Revelation 12 happen in the sky.

On September 23, 2018 the Jewish Sukkot, also known as the Feast of Tabernacles, started.

This year, the Feast of Tabernacles starts on October 13, 2019.  This corresponds with the last appearance of Our Lady at Fatima.

I don’t really know why this all stands out to me, except I know we are supposed to pray.  I know that we need an outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

As with all things pray and discern.  I thought I would let you all out there know, not so you can worry, but so you can pray.  As you know prayer is powerful and can change things.

God Bless all of you during 2019, may we all grow closer to the Lord.

    Told a friend about you being asked to pray for Panama. Her reply was….I was asked to pray for Panama over a year ago…….I said it is wyd soon.
    She had NIR realized that.

    • Yes. It’s interesting the places I get asked to pray for. Sometimes I have an idea why, other times I don’t know why. I just try to be obedient. But we do all need to be praying for the youth. Last world youth day the Vatican had released that horrible sex education program which after the back lash I think they ended up redoing. With all the scandal in the church they really should leave sex education to the parents and helping parents.

    Hi Linda
    Firstly happy new year to you and your family.
    Prophesy is one of those things which has all intrigued us, we all want to know what is to come. I guess it human nature.
    Sometimes I think not knowing is way better, as long we continue to PRAY and live our lives as we are called to. I believe those of us who truly have the gift of Prophecy and I do mean truly because there seem to be so many people who claim to be told this and shown that, have a big responsibility ( to those much has been given much will be asked) whether we like to acknowledge or not.
    Thanks for your Posts and as always God bless all you do. 🙂

    • I am Susan, not Linda, lol, but I agree with you. It’s human nature. I have just seen some people get really wrapped up and it invokes immense fear and a desire to control in a way that isn’t spiritual. So I caution about that. A friend of mine used to say if you think you’re going to outwit God or you’re going to protect yourself and not help others than you have another thing coming. And I believe that’s true. I think the prophets job is to call people back to God, not predict the future, though God does tell them things. I tend to write a lot less on here than what I feel God tell me and that’s for many reasons, one of which is I can say what I am told, but what it means or how it plays out can be very different from what I envision. And like you said it’s a big responsibility and we will be held to account for every word as Scripture tells us so I just use caution.

      • Phillip Frank says:

        Pope Benedict XVI wrote that prophesy is for the present and not the future. Since some prophesies, especially those that predict chastisments, are dependant on our response to them BEFORE they may happen it is prudent that we should be looking at it’s lesson for us and not towards it’s reported culmination which can be changed by our response.
        Our Lady comments on this reality here:
        “Also, when I predict chastisements to you, remember that everything, at any moment, may be changed by the force of your prayers and your reparative penance.” —(Our Lady to Fr. Stefano Gobbi, #282, To the Priests, Our Lady’s Beloved Sons, 18th Edition.)

      • Yes thank you. God Bless!

    Sorry Susan I don’t know why I wrote Linda :-))
    Of course you a right about a Prophets job being to bring people back to God and so much about predicting the future.
    I might be wrong and if I am it wouldn’t be the first time, but the book of Revelation has a lot of fascination with many different Christian groups probably more so than any Catholic person I have come across because many focus on the end rather than on the now.
