"Remember that in the end all of you will be called to account for your actions"
MariaMostHoly1"I will console you! Am I not the Mother of your Redeemer? I cannot let my children, redeemed by the blood of my Son, fall into the fear and the darkness that the world serves you in large quantities. You are certainly not navigating tranquil waters but I, precisely for this reason, do not leave you without my protection, not even for an instant. My dear children, continue to pray with the rosary in hand, the only weapon that protects you and that will protect you until the end. Your earth is prostrate; it no longer supports your daily acts of destruction. If you cannot respect your earth, which supports you, how can you believe without seeing in the heaven that is above you? But there am I, all my angels, all the saints that have gone before you and who intercede continually for you and those dear to you. Believe, love, pray: if one of these words is missing from your life, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. Only by considering these three little words can you think about the kingdom of God that waits for you with joy. My dear children, there is no more love in you. You live to stockpile all that seems useful to you but it is not useful. Place yourselves in silence for a moment, meditate on these three words, think about how much you could have lost until now without bringing to fulfillment three healthy and blessed sentiments. Withdraw into silence. I assure you that you will be able to hear our voices, which suggest to you the right prayers to move the heart of that God who receives from his children only offenses. I bless you. Be serene even if these times are not the best. Remember, I am with you."

" The “yes” or “no” to salvation will be precisely the respect that you will have had toward these ten counsels"
Jesus"My such dearly beloved children, respect for my commandments will be your salvation. You have joked around too much already – now seek to recover what you have lost. You chase after the latest fashions and seek to follow them to the letter in order to be up to the standards of or at least on par with those who count the most. My children, from now on let your way of following be to recognize the commandments as the only way of life to follow in order to remain on the crest of the wave not just for a period of time, but for all eternity. I have told you many times that my commandments are “counsels” for being able to merit my Kingdom with the greatest possibility at your last choice. The “yes” or “no” to salvation will be precisely the respect that you will have had toward these ten counsels. As a father cares about the education of his own children for success in this life, so your Father who is in heaven educates you for ultimate success, that of meriting eternal life. You shall not have any other god beside Me. All the gods that you often put in pride of place will carry you off the path. Recognize in time that what one should follow absolutely is the will of God. Let the will of my Father be your guide, your route, your arrival. The world is carrying you ever farther from my ways. Seek to return soon to the will of the Father. Playing for yet more time could turn out negative. Open the catechism; return, children, study to the depths what you need most to travel along the right way. I bless you. Be true witnesses. Seek to speak to your brethren, tell them that salvation comes only in respect for the commandments."

"Soon my Father will choose to purify the earth that he has created"
Jesus"I am with you and my Mother is with Me. I see in your hearts uncertainty and fear, but do you know why? Your spirit has been silenced and distanced. My very dear children, how is it that you do not understand that your times have reached the end? I would like that my little remnant keep vigil even over those brethren dazed and confused by the vicissitudes that you are going through. Children, bear witness that without Me and my Father you will not go far. I assure you that your fears will disappear only when you understand that decisions come always and everywhere from on high. One God, one Lord, one Creator. You are in our hands and, if you wish, you will feel safe. If you give your trust only to that which the world offers you, you will have nothing but delusions. You do not understand that on your own you cannot live in my graces. If you do not decide as soon as possible to entrust your life into our reliable hands, you will lose without having realized true willing – that of God, that is, of the best for you. Choose to bow your heads. If you understand that the greatest love comes from God, then you will resolve all your problems. Soon my Father will choose to purify the earth that he has created with all possible love. You have destroyed all that you have that is good and just. All will return, after its purification, to the way it was from the beginning. Do not waste any more time. Reflect and choose eternal life, where there will no longer be either suffering or death. I want you with Me. The Mother, She too extends her hands and blesses you."

Our Lady of Anguera"Dear children, the day will come when many fervent in faith will retreat, for they will be afraid to testify to the faith because of the great persecution that there will be. I am your Sorrowful Mother and I suffer for what comes to you. Bend your knees in prayer and seek strength in the Words of My Jesus and in the Eucharist. The brightness of truth will fade in many places and that which is false will be embraced. These are the most painful times for the righteous. Courage. Do not depart from the truth. Whatever happens, stay with Jesus and with the true Magisterium of His Church. This is the message I give you today in the name of the Most Holy Trinity. Thank you for having allowed Me to gather you here once more. I bless you, in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen. Be at peace."

Our Lady of Anguera"Dear children, God has sent Me to you to tell you that this is the opportune time for your return. Do not fold your arms. What you have to do, do not leave for tomorrow. Humanity will drink the bitter chalice of pain because men have turned away from the Creator. Pray much before the cross and plead the mercy of God for your lives. I suffer for what comes to you. Seek strength in the Gospel and in the Eucharist. When all seems lost, the Victory of God will come for the righteous. Do not retreat. I am your Mother and I love you. Courage. This is the message I give you today in the name of the Most Holy Trinity. Thank you for having allowed Me to gather you here once more. I bless you, in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen. Be at peace."

Our Lady of Anguera"Dear children, you are the Lord’s Possession. Give Him your very existence. Do not allow your freedom to keep you from feeling the Presence of the Lord and His Inspirations for your lives. Be obedient. The Lord needs men and women of courage. Testify everywhere to the Gospel of My Jesus. Show all, with your examples and words, that you are in the world, but not of the world. You are living in the time of Great Tribulation, but the worst is yet to come. Be attentive. Love and defend the truth. Do not fold your arms. I am your Sorrowful Mother and I suffer because of your sufferings. The Great Vessel will move away from the route leading to to Safe Harbor and many will be lost. It will be a time of great pain for those who love the truth. Bend your knees in prayer. Only by the power of prayer can you overcome the devil. Onward without fear. This is the message I give you today in the name of the Most Holy Trinity. Thank you for having allowed Me to gather you here once more. I bless you, in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen. Be at peace."

Nostra Signora di Medjugorje"Dear children, with a motherly love I am calling you to open hearts to peace; to open hearts to my Son, so that in your hearts love for my Son may sing, because only out of that love peace comes in the soul. My children, I know that you have goodness, I know that you have love – a merciful love, but many of my children still have a closed heart. They think that they can do it without directing their thoughts towards the Heavenly Father who illuminates-towards my Son who is always with you anew in the Eucharist and who desires to listen to you. My children, why do you not speak to Him? The life of each of you is important and precious, because it is a gift from the Heavenly Father for eternity. Therefore, do not ever forget to keep on thanking Him: speak to Him. I know, my children, that what is to come afterwards is unknown to you, but when your hereafter comes you will receive all the answers. My motherly love desires that you be ready. My children, by your life keep putting good feelings in the hearts of the people whom you meet, feelings of peace, goodness, love and forgiveness. Through prayer, hearken to what My Son is saying and act accordingly. Anew, I am calling you to prayer for your shepherds, for those whom my Son has called. Remember that they need prayers and love. Thank you."

That is why I am calling you to pray to Him and to trust in Him, because He is your refuge from every evil that lurks and carries souls far from the grace and joy to which you are all called. Little children, live Heaven here on earth so that it will be good for you; and may the commandments of God be a light on your way. I am with you and I love you all with my motherly love. Thank you for having responded to my call."

John Leary: MessagesJesus said: “My people, you are seeing droughts, fires, record high temperatures, and floods from heavy rains. I told you that America will be punished for your sins by natural disasters. In the vision you are seeing food being heated in a crude outdoor oven using wood. As you approach the tribulation time, you will be in need of food and water. Your money will fail, and you will need the protection of My refuges from the evil ones. You will have daily Holy Communion from My angels or a priest. You could even survive on My Blessed Sacrament alone. So have no fear of what you will eat or drink, or where you will stay. My angels will guide you and protect you at the nearest refuge."
July 26, 2018: (St. Anne & St. Joachim)
John Leary: MessagesJesus said: “My people, just as you see this black water rising all over the world, it is a sign of how the evil is increasing in the world. You are seeing many volcanoes erupting all over the world. I have told you before that there are demons coming up into the world through your active volcanoes, like in Hawaii. I know the evil ones are gaining in power, but My power is greater, so do not fear these evil ones. When you are being attacked by evil around you, call on Me, and I will bring legions of My angels to defend you. Evil will appear to be winning on the world stage, but fear not because My angels are preparing for My great victory over the Antichrist, the demons, and the evil people. Once I come in victory, all of these evil ones will be cast into hell. Then I will recreate the earth, and I will bring My faithful into My Era of Peace, and later into heaven.”
July 27, 2018
John Leary: MessagesJesus said: “My people, in the vision I am showing you an earthly king who will declare his kingdom all over the earth. For My faithful this will be the Antichrist, and he will be assisted by the false prophet, and Satan himself as a black ugly demon. You are looking at the beginning of the tribulation time. After the six weeks of reparation after the Warning, I want My people to get rid of your TVs, cell phones, computers, radios, and any other screens or devices connected to the internet. This is so you do not look at the eyes of the Antichrist, or listen to his words, or he could control your mind and soul to worship him. Refuse to take the mark of the beast or a computer chip in your body, that also could control your mind. I will warn My faithful at the proper time to leave for My refuges of protection from the evil ones. At My refuges you will see My luminous cross, and when you look on it in faith, you will be healed of your physical and spiritual ills. I am the only King of the Universe, and I am the only One to be worshiped. All other people and gods are not to be worshiped, or you will sin against My First Commandment. Just as you have My Blessed Sacrament before you now, so you will have perpetual Adoration of My Eucharist at every refuge. With daily Holy Communion given to you by My angels, I will feed you My Real Presence, and My love will permeate your body and soul to give you strength to bear this evil time to come. Trust in Me to have My angels protect you, and guide you to My refuges. Pray for all of My refuge builders who are preparing safe places for My faithful. You will need My cross on your foreheads by My angels, in order to enter My refuges. Give praise and glory to Me for protecting you and leading you into My Era of Peace.”

John Leary: MessagesJesus said: “My people, I am showing you in the vision another example of man’s pride. Some people boasted about the Titanic: ‘Not even God Himself could sink this ship’. Little did the builders know that the Titanic would sink on its maiden voyage. When man openly defies Me that I could not sink this ship, he is calling down My justice upon this ship. You know the history of the sinking of the Titanic by an iceberg. There is another challenge by the people of America when I allowed the destruction of your Twin Towers in New York City. This was a terrorist attack, but it was planned in advance when your buildings were taken down for a financial profit from the insurance. Your leaders spoke out to rebuild these buildings, but it was in defiance of My judgment that this was done. Even the words are put on the Freedom Tower by your previous President: ‘We remember. We rebuild. We come back stronger.’ Because you built this Freedom Tower in defiance of My judgment, you will see its collapse, as it will be destroyed again. When you openly defy Me as with the Tower of Babel, the Titanic, and the Freedom Tower, you are calling down My judgment upon you. Be prepared for such a destruction of your man-made tower that you have made into an idol. I love your people, but you will be chastised for your abortions and your sexual sins.”

John Leary: MessagesJesus said: “My people, in the vision you are seeing the eyes of the Antichrist that look like the eyes of a serpent. This is what I do not want you to look at, or the Antichrist could mesmerize you to worship him. After six weeks after the Warning, avoid all of your screen devices so you do not look at him or listen to him, because he will control all of the means of communication. When your lives and souls are in danger of being lost, I will call My faithful to come to My refuges. My angels will place an invisible shield over My faithful, and your refuges will be protected from the evil ones, and no harm will come to you, even now at My refuges. Trust in My protection because My angels will protect your souls as well as your bodies. In the Gospel you saw how I multiplied the bread and the fish for the 5,000. So My angels will give you daily Holy Communion, if you do not have a priest. My angels will also multiply your food, water, and fuels at My refuges, but you must pray and accept My gifts with faith that I can do the impossible for you. As more people come to your refuge, My angels will also multiply your buildings, or add floors to your existing buildings, so every person will have their own place. The evil of the tribulation will test you with the evil ones, because this will be your purgatory on earth. But I will be beside you to protect you. Do not fear the evil ones because My power is greater that all of them. Trust in Me to provide for all of your needs. St. Anne and I are blessing all of you to protect you on your way home.”
July 30, 2018: (St. John Chrysologus)
John Leary: MessagesJesus said: “My people, I treat you as a mother because you are all of My creations. This is why I love you so much, and I want you to love Me in return for all I have done for you. In the Book of Jeremiah, Jeremiah showed you how his loincloth rotted, and it was good for nothing. Then I spoke to Jeremiah how Israel would rot from its sins and idol worship. Later, Israel was defeated and carried off to Babylon as a punishment for their offenses. America is also rotting from its abortions, sexual sins, and idol worship of money and pleasures. You are falling into the same sins, and your country is on its way to destruction from natural disasters and the one world people. When your lives are in danger, I will call you to My refuges of protection. My faithful will be rewarded in My Era of Peace, but the evil ones will be cast down into the eternal flames of hell.”

God the Father"Relief can come in many forms. It can be cool weather after oppressive heat. It can be peace amongst opposing parties. It can be food in the presence of starvation. It can be faith in the presence of disbelief. Whatever the situation, relief is a grace from Heaven. Sometimes, if the soul is too dependent on himself, I step back and withhold relief. Other times, the soul is very good at offering everything up, so again I wait judiciously. There are times when the soul doesn't even recognize his needs until I step in and offer relief. I see all and know all. I am always with you offering relief at the perfect time. Never despair."

Unity is strength. The enemy tries to sew division wherever he can. This is why you see such division in the political arena. Satan uses the spirit of ambition as a tool. Be united in good and oppose evil as you discern it to be. Pray for a strong gift of discernment. The enemy hides his agenda until he has a strong foothold."

God the Father"Children, often you do not grasp the significance of events in your midst. So, it is, with My Patriarchal Blessing. Some who live so nearby did not make the effort to be here (The apparition site of Maranatha Spring and Shrine).* Others, traveled great distances to come and were in deep appreciation for what they received. My Blessing carried with it a spiritual cleansing, as hearts were given clarity as to their sins and weaknesses. A fortune of graces was spread across the property. Throughout history mankind has not received such Heavenly support. I offer it during these times, as soon, I must intervene and call to task the evil that is overwhelming the heart of the world. Many await dates and certain events as signs of the coming chastisement. You do not have to look far, as 'Holy Fire' - greater than any in history - is consuming thousands of acres in the western part of your country (Catastrophic and Historic wildfires in California, U.S.A.).** Do not anticipate any one event or establish a timeline of events. Prepare your hearts every day to accept My schedule - known only to Me. Each present moment is a gift. Explore it with meekness and simplicity. I am embracing those who embrace My Will."

In the illness you (the seer Maureen Sweeney-Kyle)* are now experiencing, people stay close to you to meet your every need. The world is undergoing a spiritual illness. But for the most part, they do not seek closeness to Me to find a solution. I desire to help both in big and in little ways. Ask Me and you will see changes. Do not wait until you are desperate for help. It is alright to ask for help to avoid a desperate situation. I am your Father - both in good times and in bad. I share your laughter and suffer with you your tears. I am always next to you ready to listen."

Pray "The United Hearts", the source of all Grace, Mercy and Love

June 6, 2018 - Message from God the Father
Dio Padre"I am the Creator of every present moment. I am Father of all life. I come today to point out that Our United Hearts - remember it is My Light* that surrounds the Hearts of Jesus and Mary - are the epitome of Holy and Divine Love. Do not be mistaken or be led away from this Truth. Honor Our United Hearts as the source of all Grace, every Mercy and immeasurable Love. Have confidence in what I am saying to you today. When you believe this, it will be easy for you to trust in Our Hearts in every present moment. Every strength that you lack in your own human heart is here present in Our United Hearts. These days, the enemy shows himself in doubts and skepticism. The United Hearts receive the same disrespect as the Holy Eucharist in the world. Those who believe must be brave apostles of love. Like little children they should eagerly share the knowledge of Our United Hearts when and where they can. The apostles of love are the consolation and joy of My Heart."

Satan flees before this title. It gives the soul clarity of purpose and a strong sense of good versus evil. I will refuse no one their chance to petition My Heart under this title. None will be left unaided. My special attention rests upon those devoted to Me as Refuge of Holy Love. My Heart is the hope of the future. Herein lies the key to peace in hearts and in the world. If only all hearts would seek out Holy Love, every problem would dissolve in your midst. Today, My prayer is that more listen and accept the Truth I am giving you. Let it be a Call heard around the world. Live in Holy Love."

Message of God the Father for the Year 2018

MESSAGE OF GOD THE FATHER for YEAR 2018

God the Father(January 1, 2018) "I am God the Father, Creator of all good. Today, as this New Year unfolds, I come to reveal to you directions and warnings which will be necessary to know ahead of time. The collusions between Russia, China, North Korea and Iran will become more open and obvious. Their evil tilts towards the promotion of a One World Order - a government of evil. There will be even greater friction between Israel and its neighboring countries. President Trump will have to take a firm stand." "In this country (USA) you will see greater chasms between liberalism and conservatism. While the economy strengthens, the good of this administration will continue to be downplayed. Stricter policies against terrorism will be put into place. This will affect immigration." "The great and natural resources of this country will be brought to the forefront and strengthen the national image. This Ministry (Maranatha Spring and Shrine) will continue to be a solace to the Remnant Faithful. Many changes are in hearts in Rome - changes heretofore unthought of. If they come to light, people will need to choose between obedience to title and authority or obedience to the Truth. The focus of the Church will be on more liberal stands on moral issues." "Continue your many rosaries and Masses for the Remnant. In the world, the Remnant is comprised of those conservatives unwilling to compromise the Truth.""

Holy Love: Messages - October 7, 2017
Our Lady of Fatima. She says: "Praise be to Jesus."
Holy Love"Dear children, I come to remind you of the power of your prayers. One 'Hail Mary' prayed from the heart has the power to convert a soul, stop a war or unravel evil plans hidden in hearts. When your prayers are united with all the prayer recited in that moment around the world, one prayer has infinite power. Think then of the power of one rosary. Consider the effect of many rosaries prayed throughout the day. Do not allow Satan to discourage your prayer efforts. Celebrate the gift of the Rosary today. Today, I come specifically to draw the world into unitive prayer. This unitive prayer has the potential to uncover and reverse evil. When you begin to pray, say, 'I unite my prayers to all the prayers being prayed around the world in this present moment.' I take this collective prayer and use it as a barrier against the evil that is in hearts all over the world. I do not come to sensationalize the dangers of these times, but to unite you in an ongoing effort of prayer against evil."
