The prophecies of Saint Nilus from centuries ago indicate how loyalty has flown the coop today!
In examining the aspect of loyalty to Holy Mother Church, we come upon the agenda of the New Age movement which over the past two centuries - particularly the last forty years - has lured so many of the faithful away through the clever wiles of the evil one who masquerades the truth just as prophesied by Saint Niles or Nilus who lived to be 95. For the third part on Loyalty, click on WHERE IS HOLY MOTHER CHURCH HEADING AS WE NEAR THE MILLENNIUM?
The Thirty-Fifth Clarion: LOYALTY
"Exhort servants to be obedient to their masters, in all things pleasing, not contradicting, not defrauding, but in all things showing good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God, our Savior in all things."
Titus 2: 9-10
We climaxed the last installment with the statement: "It is the deceivers who are being deceived!
This is the quintessence of the New Age movement."
It matters not how intellectual we've become in this so-called enlightened
age of ever-advancing scientific achievements. It matters not what
'scientists' theorize as to the origin of the universe, its size, age,
on-going changes. It matters not whether scientists have explored the
realm of genetic engineering, and that we've reached an age where 'life'
can be and is created in a test tube, and that we can more or less pick
what we want a child to be fro the moment of conception. Oh, it matters
that all of the above is not only possible, but reality. It matters
because none of these things are of God, for God, or from Him!!! This is
where loyalty comes in. Are we loyal to Him, the Creator of All? Are we
loyal to the commands He has given us, and by which He expects us as His
children to live? Loyalty to God must come first in our life, or we're
already on the wrong path and were not going to make any headway no matter
what we do. If we don't have God, we've lost the whole purpose of life and
our existence on earth.
Consider what Saint Nilus, a little-known saintly prophet of the 400's
foretold fifteen centuries ago:
"After the year 1900, toward the middle of
the 20th century, the people of that time will become unrecognizable. When
the time for the Advent of the Antichrist approaches, people's minds will
grow cloudy from carnal passions, and dishonor and lawlessness will grow
stronger. Then the world will become unrecognizable. People's appearances
will change, and it will be impossible to distinguish men from women due to
their shamelessness in dress and style of hair. These people will be cruel
and will be like wild animals because of the temptations of the antichrist.
There will be no respect for parents and elders, love will disappear, and
Christian pastors, bishops, and priests will become vain men, completely
failing to distinguish the right-hand from the left. At that time the
morals and traditions of Christians and of the Church will change. People
will abandon modesty, and dissipation will reign. Falsehood and greed will
attain great proportions, and woe to those who pile up treasures. Lust,
adultery, homosexuality, secret deeds, and murder will rule in society.
"At that future time, due to the power of such great crimes and
licentiousness, people will be deprived of the grace of the Holy Spirit,
which they received in Holy Baptism and equally of remorse.
"The Churches of God will be deprived of God-fearing and pious pastors,
and woe to the Christians remaining in the world at that time; they will
completely lose their faith because they will lack the opportunity of
seeing the light of knowledge from anyone at all. Then they will separate
themselves out of the world in holy refuges in search of lightening their
spiritual suffering, but everywhere they will meet obstacles and
constraints. And all this will result from the fact that the Antichrist
wants to be Lord over everything and become the ruler of the whole
universe, and he will produce miracles and fantastic signs. He will also
give depraved wisdom to an unhappy man so that he will discover a way by
which one man can carry on a conversation with another from one end of the
earth to the other. At that time men will also fly through the air like
birds and descend to the bottom of the sea like fish. And when they have
achieved all this, these unhappy people spend their lives in comfort
without knowing, poor souls, that it is deceit of the Antichrist. And, the
impious one! - he will so complete science with vanity that it will go off
the right path and lead people to lose faith in the existence of God in
"Then the All-Good God will see the downfall of the human race and will
shorten the days for the sake of those few who are being saved, because the
enemy wants to lead even the chosen into temptation, if that is
possible…then the sword of chastisement will suddenly appear and kill the
perverter and his servants."
When you consider the times St. Nilus received this message, you know it
came from the Holy Spirit. In addition, study St. Matthew's Gospel, the
Apocalypse (Revelation), as well as the messages of LaSalette and other
recent messages from Akita, Betania, El Escorial, Garabandal, etc., and
you'll see it almost sounds world-for word at times. Is there any doubt
God is trying to warn us of the spiritual pitfalls ahead through His
messengers and His Blessed Mother who He's sent in record number of
appearances toward the end of this second millennium to prepare us against
this New Age mentality in these end times.
New Age shrewdly masquerades that we can be God - not like God in His image
and likeness, but actually be gods. It has a familiar ring to it, doesn't
it? Wasn't that the rationale a certain serpent used with Adam and Eve,
that he thrust upon Jesus in the desert?
Next installment: part four on loyalty.
"Let the ego of your soul rule and you shall see with the Light of Truth."
Those are the words of the Blessed Mother Mary in her 159th and 160th messages to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart, which we bring you today. Our Lady implores her children to be aware of the half-truths spread by satan, and to remain loyal to her Divine Son and she promises she will protect us all beneath her Immaculate and protective mantle of love. The times are going to get increasingly worse as the years go by from a moral, conscience scope and and we need to be free of sin and keep our lamps lit for we know not the hour.

Message One Hundred Fifty-Nine, March 3, 1992
(Imparted to the Hidden Flower by the Immaculate Heart of Mary)
Beloved Hidden Flower, to all my beloved children I say: Prepare your hearts as the Holy Season of Lent begins. Do not be gloomy, nor think of a long penance. Rejoice that Almighty God has given you yet another opportunity to love Him and to purify your hearts.
I solemnly tell you that this Holy Season is for all the world the Way of the Cross, the entrance upon the way of the great chastisement which shall separate the wheat from the chaff. I desire all my children to be wheat, a bountiful blessing to God. But you have not understood my messages, nor have you converted your hearts. I am asking each of you to joyfully take up your cross and follow my Divine Son as He walks with agony to a cruel death that leads to the Salvation of the world.
Dear little ones, I say to you again: Open your hearts. Permit the Holy Spirit to enlighten you. O! Do not slumber any longer, for the time is NOW when you must decide for God, or for the beast of darkness.
Behold! Look to the skies. There you shall see many wondrous signs. Behold! Look to the world. In every corner of the earth its foundations shake. The seals have been broken and the Holy Scriptures are to be fulfilled. Do not remain blind because of your ego. Let the ego of your soul rule and you shall see with the Light of Truth.
O! Poor little ones so ensnared by the world! How easily the demon seduces you, lulls you into false security and deadens your conscience.
Awaken now, for your Heavenly Mother calls you into her army, an army which shall help in God's eternal plan to forever seal the beast in hell and bring to fruition the Reign of the Sacred Heart.
Why do you continue to doubt? Why are my children disinterested, swept away by the demon's sly lies and half-truths?
I have asked you to become living prayers and I ask again this total commitment from all my little ones. It is essential for each of you to renew and re-dedicate yourselves to my Son through my Immaculate Heart during this Season of Lent.
You must fruitfully use these days to advance in holiness, in meekness and humility, simplicity and trust. I solemnly tell you there shall be such events in your world that shall bring to their knees many of my children. There will be tears and terror in many places, and many shall convert, for such is the Loving Mercy of God. But do not tarry, for the evil one pushes his plan to its culmination.
O! My Son's beloved Church, the Roman Catholic Church, shall be torn apart in spirit and in flesh! Great shall be the apostasy, and great the number of my little ones who shall be swept along in a tidal wave of utter blasphemy.
The moment is here. Awake! I solemnly tell you that if your heart is just and upright you shall not be swept away, but rather shall be gathered beneath my Immaculate Mantle. Those who persevere are "little" humble souls who strive to do God's Holy Will and never their own. They shall fight valiantly, while the learned and mighty shall slide heedlessly to the abyss.
Thank you for responding to my Call!
Message One Hundred Sixty, March 3, 1992
(Imparted to the Hidden Flower by the Immaculate Heart of Mary)
Beloved Hidden Flower, today I say: Pray! Pray! Pray! Pray for Unity of mind and heart through the grace of the Holy Spirit. Then shall you comprehend my words and realize God shall accomplish this unity in one swift supernatural moment which shall sweep the earth. My children proclaim my messages of unity, but my children interpret my words with finite, fallible thought and distort the Truth of my words, which I speak by God's authority.
If you wish to know and proclaim the Truth, then you must walk with my Son and be crucified with Him to the world and to your flesh. Let this Lenten Season purify your intentions by the grace of the Holy Spirit. Let this Lenten Season assist you to root out all excesses, that God alone may reign supreme.
How I love all my little ones. How I grieve over dissension which is always from the evil one.
Little ones, hear me. The beast, the antichrist, has maneuvered all his demons into position. He laughs and scorns my precious army, so small next to his. I desire to bring my little ones to my Son's Heart, but you must help me.
Die to yourselves now that God may grant the triumph of my Immaculate Heart before the grave chaos sweeps many into the abyss.
I am your Mother. I love you. Please heed my words. I give you God's peace. I shall be with you on your walk to Calvary. I shall comfort you and encourage you. With eyes fixed on my Divine Son, you shall gain eternal life I bless and kiss you. Thank you for responding to my Call!

FEAST OF THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS
This special feast set aside to honor the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus is a tribute to the devotion to the Sacred Heart which illustrates Christ's love, divine and human for all his children symbolized in His Own physical Heart. It is also a symbol of His Divine Triune Love where Jesus shares with the Father, Holy Spirit and through the Son, with mankind, manifesting this love so that He became man, subjecting Himself to the weakness of man so that we could have life and have it more abundantly (cf. John 10:10) for Colossians 2: 9 sums it up, "For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily, and in Him Who is the Head of every Principality and Power you have received of that fullness." Devotion to His Sacred Heart can be traced to many mystics over the years beginning with Saint Bernard of Clairvaux in the 12th Century then Saints Bonaventure and Gertrude in the 13th Century, followed by Saint Frances of Rome in the 15th Century and Saint Francis de Sales, Saint John Eudes and Saint Margaret Mary Alocoque in the 17th Century. It was the latter who received apparitions and locutions while in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament that gave the greatest impetus to this devotion and passed down the Twelve Promises of the Sacred Heart. This led to the establishment of the Nine First Friday devotion which promises final penitence to those who receive Holy Communion on the first Friday of nine consecutive months.
May 25th Medjugorje Monthly Message
Dear children! Today I call you, through prayer and sacrifice, to prepare
yourselves for the coming of the Holy Spirit. Little children, this is a time of grace and so, again, I call
you to decide for God the Creator. Allow Him to transform and change you. May your heart be
prepared to listen to, and live, everything which the Holy Spirit has in His plan for each of you. Little
children, allow the Holy Spirit to lead you on the way of truth and salvation towards eternal life. Thank you for having responded to my call.

CONSECRATION TO THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS
Jesus, we know that You are merciful and that You have offered Your Heart
for us. It is crowned with thorns and with our sins. We know that You
implore us constantly so that we do not go astray. Jesus, remember us when
we are in sin. By means of your Heart make all men love one another. Make
hate disappear from amongst men. Show us Your love. We all love You and
want You to protect us with Your Shepherd's Heart and free us from every
sin. Jesus, enter into every heart! Be patient and never desist. We are
still closed because we have not understood Your Love. Knock continuously,
O Good Jesus, make us open our hearts to You at least in the moment we
remember Your Passion suffered for us. Amen.
