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.
