“No one can serve two masters. He will either hate the one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. Therefore, I tell you, do not worry about your life– what you shall eat or drink– or about your body– what you will 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? Can any of you, by worrying, add a single moment to your life span?

“Why are you anxious about clothes? Learn from the way the wildflowers 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. If God so clothes the grass of the field, which grows today and is thrown into the oven tomorrow, will He not much more provide for you, oh you of little faith?

“So do not worry and say, what are we to eat? Or what shall we drink? Or what are we to wear? All these things the pagans seek. Your Heavenly Father knows that you need them all.

“But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be given you besides. Do not worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow will take care of itself. Sufficient for a day is its own evil.”

This is Mejanomics with a Friend of Medjugorje.

[Revelation 3:15-16]

“I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot.  I would that wert cold or hot.  So then because thou art lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth.”

 

[A Friend of Medjugorje]

I received a letter today.  It makes me want to vomit.  It makes me angry.  Oh, we are not supposed to be angry?  Jesus sometimes was angry.  So, this letter is going to be read to you.

[Letter]

Dear Friend of Medjugorje,

“Not living the Sabbath is a big deal and if you do not change how you live this Commandment, you will be CURSED!”

I have read your latest bulletin on the Sabbath Day and found it puzzling.  The Pharisees condemned Jesus for working on the Sabbath and are you condemning people who must do good work on the Sabbath like policemen or firemen or doctors or nurses or pharmacists or soldiers?

Jesus said that He has come to serve, not to be served and what about folks who serve food like cooks who provide food for hungry people, and waitresses and waiters who serve.  Perhaps these folks must work on the Sabbath in order to provide for their children or pay the rent.  They are serving others as Jesus did on the Sabbath.  The Jews were so strict about the Sabbath that they had to prepare food a day ahead and could only walk a certain distance and condemned Jesus for saying “take up they pallet and walk” to the healed man.

Jesus also said that the Sabbath was made for man, not for God as God needs nothing.  The Sabbath was a gift of rest for man, not something demanded by God.  Keep Holy the Sabbath day may include pulling your donkey out of a cistern, healing a fellow man as Jesus did, or serving people food or protecting or caring for mankind.

Would you condemn these folks to hell?  I am sure Jesus would not.  Jesus said, “A new commandment I give to you.  Love one another AS I have loved you!”  Love covers many sins and there are many ways of showing love and serving on the Sabbath.  Be very carful how you judge people’s actions unless you walk in their shoes.  Let Jesus decide wo is keeping a holy Sabbath by laying down their lives for others.  Priest work on the Sabbath also.  Be very careful what you say when you are speaking for Our Blessed Mother!

 

[A Friend of Medjugorje]

This individual is no different from the Pharisees.  They were wrong and you are dead wrong.  You take the position, neither cold nor hot.  That is a Commandment.  It is the 3rd Commandment.  The first three Commandments are about God.  She wrote about that it was for man and for his rest.  The first three Commandments concern God.  The other seven are concerned with man.

I reject everything you say.  Obviously, I don’t reject about the policemen have to work, the doctor has to go to the emergency.  I didn’t write anything against that.  And I stand behind the book I wrote years ago, Christians are Destroying Christendom. That is the title and that is what is happening.  Our world is falling apart because of the Sabbath.  It seems like not a big deal to go eat or go get gas or go to a movie on Sunday.  I am telling you it is wrong.  You are paying people to work for you.

Talking about waiters or waitresses, who have to pay the rent, you have six days to do that.  Your letter is justification to break a serious, very serious Commandment.  It doesn’t seem like a big deal.  The first step of everything happening, falling apart, is not honoring God on the Sabbath.  I did not write in the book that you can’t get your ox out of the well.  In 2006, Pope Benedict, on Good Friday, he went to the Colosseum.  I read the article the next day, and it hit me what he did.  He went to each station and made a statement.  At the third station, Pope Benedict said quote,

“We have lost our sense of sin!  Today a slick campaign of propaganda is spreading an empty void of defense of evil, a senseless cult of satan, a mindless desire of transgression, a dishonest and frivolous freedom, exalting impulsiveness, immorality, and selfishness.”

What is incredible about this is it is a statement that contradicts this letter.  How is it that he says this at the third station and what we are talking about is the Third Commandment.  That is not by accident.  Our Lady says nothing is by chance.  Benedict’s statement perfectly kills most of the points of what this letter says.  Our Lady is here to protect us.  She has told us to live the Commandments.

The only time Marija has heard Jesus as a baby was on Christmas when He said, “Live My Commandments!”  Not dilute them, not make them adapted to your lifestyle and what you want to do.  October 25, 1993, Our Lady says, “I love you and wish to protect you from every evil, but you do not desire it.”

And that is what is happening.  I want to do what I want to on Sunday.  It is not a big deal.  In the book of James, it says, “If you break one of the commandments, you broke all ten.”  In this message, Our Lady continues, She says,

“Dear children, I cannot help you if you do not live God’s Commandments.”

I stand strong that Christendom has fallen away from that third Commandment and almost nobody is following it.  But you know what?  There are three monolithic religions:  the Jewish religion, Christendom and Muslim.  They share the same Commandments.  The first one and the third ones are doing that.  We aren’t.  And that is why Christendom is in the decline, across the whole world.  There are recent statistics that show this.

Anybody with common sense understands what the Pharisees was saying about Jesus, not healing somebody on the Sabbath or not walking too far or, as she said, a donkey out of the cistern and then she says, would you condemn these folks to hell?  No!  But we are going to hell right now.  This nation is going to hell.  Why is it going?  I am telling you, the first break, the falling of our culture is what broke away.

My wife’s family lived way in the country and when we first got married, they didn’t even go fishing on Sundays.  It is an amazing thing when I heard that because by then, Catholicism wasn’t doing that.  The Protestants were real reserved.  That day, not even going fishing.  Why did they have that belief so strong that that was wrong.  You could say that’s stupid.

But you know what, the culture was good.  Everybody was safe.  There was no shootings and a hundred other things that we don’t have today.  She said, will you condemn these folks to hell?  And then she says, “I am sure Jesus would not.”  It is true.  Jesus doesn’t send anybody to hell.  They send themselves to hell.  And don’t tell me our country is not at the gates of hell right now.  Priests work on the Sabbath.  I know that.  That is what they are supposed to do.  You are putting me in that position as a Pharisee and that is what you are.

Be very careful for what you say when you are speaking for the Blessed Mother.  I stand by every word, every letter I put in the book and I reject your justification.  In this is what is wrong with Christendom.  You listening to this, you have the book, Christians Destroying Christendom, if you don’t have it, order it.  We will put a download so that you can have that.

What I do say to you lady, Revelation 3:15-17, I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot.  I could wish you were cold or hot so then because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of my mouth.  And that is what is wrong with Christendom and people like you by denying the Third Commandment.

When I read this letter this morning, my blood started boiling because its people like you is destroying this nation and our future. The result of this of not keeping the Sabbath and it’s turned into the most business day of commerce than any other day of the week. I’m talking about entertainment, food, etc.

Now we have the banks are crashing, the economy is bad and it’s getting worse, worldwide, everywhere. You are going to be losing things that you think you can hold onto. But we have an economic system that is dying, and I’ve been begging you to take your money out of the system. It is not of God, and it is flagrant violations of Sunday.

Every day we are researching and see what is happening and I’ve been pleading to you to save what you got, preserve it, change your system and how you do things. You cannot follow the culture. From the Sunday, from the money, from the stock markets, the retirements, all these things, you have to get out now and change the direction.

In Exodus, it says: “I will work such marvels as it has never been rout to any nation anywhere on earth so that this people among whom you live may see how awe-inspiring are the deeds which I, the Lord, will do at your side. But you, on your part, must keep the Commandments I am giving you today.” So, we’re going to hear now, more bad news of what is taking place now. Century Silver.

 

[Century Silver Exchange]

Well, a Friend of Medjugorje, you’ve always said we don’t have an economic problem, we have a morality problem, but that the morality problem is what really fruits out into the economic problem and what has been going on in the past two days is what many are calling bank failures part two. We have the beginning of the bank failures this year in March.

And now we have round two beginning, it started on Monday evening with First Republic Bank. First Republic Bank was one of the big banks that was in trouble earlier in March, but they got a thirty billion dollar infusion from eleven different banks that kept them afloat.

But in the last three days they have gone into, what many in the market are calling a freefall. And I’ll explain it like this. They, in the stock market world, big companies do what’s called an earnings call when they get on the phone with investors and traders, and they talk about the strength of their business and what happened in one quarter of that business’ operations.

Well, First Republic Bank, in their earnings call on Monday, reported that they had about a hundred billion dollars in deposits leave their bank in the first quarter of this year. That hundred billion dollars that left the bank was more than half of the money they had in the bank at the end of 2022.

Immediately following this earnings call, in which they basically reported really bad news, the stock price dropped just overnight and into the next morning by about 70%, from sixteen dollars a share down to six dollars a share which is a heavy, heavy market indicator that there is massive trouble. Normally, during these earnings calls the executives will hang on the line to field and answer questions from investors, but they just closed the meeting and refused to answer any questions which means they’re in trouble and they don’t want to talk about it.

So basically, what people are saying int the market right now, analysts, is that First Republic Bank is done. And again, the question becomes what happens to all these depositors that have money in the bank? What are we going to do now? Another bailout? Like what happened in March? You can really only push the system so far and do so many bailouts or what begins to happen is everybody begins to lose confidence in the entire system and people are going to start the nationwide run-on banks.

Many people may be thinking though, well if they just keep their money in a safe bank, like a big bank, a JP Morgan, Chase or Wells Fargo or something like that, that their money is going to be safe in the big banks, but many of you will recall an article that we sent out a couple of weeks ago, in which we explained that no matter what, at this point, holding dollars is a lose-lose situation.

Scenario one, you leave your money in the bank and it collapses and you lose your money that way. Scenario two, you leave your money in the bank, and it doesn’t collapse, but you can very well bet that you’re going to lose almost all of your purchasing power through the ravages of inflation which we, in American, have set ourselves up for, but this is an international worldwide phenomenon that inflation is going to be raging, even worse, worldwide.

 

[A Friend of Medjugorje]

A few shows ago, we talked about Ernest Hemingway, he had a character in his book and a question was asked of him, the character, how did you go bankrupt? And he said, “Gradually. Then suddenly.” So, we see these banks going down like dominoes and God’s giving us a grace to think as Our Lady has talked about to follow my messages so that it would go well for you. The writing is on the wall.

We’ve had people tell us they were going to pay the penalties to get their retirements, and they don’t get it. It’s dragged out and it’s difficult and some people aren’t getting it. We got a feedback from a listener in Australia. This is worldwide. You can’t get your own money back. This woman is fighting to get her retirement. She gives us a feedback that you’re going to listen to now.

 

[Ruth]

Dear Friend of Medjugorje,

I have been watching your posts that are trying to support us about the worthlessness coming for paper money and where it is held. Are you sure it is only a hundred times??

I have reached preservation age and can apply for my superannuation annuity if I am retired. I have resigned from my job to access my retirement funds. I am hoping to pay off the mortgage for my house which has raised garden beds.

Concerning getting my retirement:

WOW. You are totally correct about the ‘system’ not wanting to let go. I still have not been approved access for my Retirement funds two weeks later (they advertise three days for the claim to be paid). My request was sent through the ‘Member Protection Team’ to check my identity after already submitting my passport details and birth certificate details ready for the claim.

I was emailed 7 days later with a request to send a certified copy of a photo ID along with the statements from the nominated bank account. A day later, a judge was to identify my Driver’s license to ensure that it was the same as the copied scan ready for submitting. I had to take a selfie photo holding said certified document.

I have put in a complaint about this now becoming harassment.  After which I then couldn’t log into my account online. I have once again rung the Super Fund and asked why my online account log is not accessible. I am still waiting for my super fund payout. I am going to submit a complaint of this shabby treatment. It is really harassment by a big company on the small person.

Thank you, Friend of Medjugorje, for having the strength to survive all that you and your family and friends have been and still go through to support us.

 

[A Friend of Medjugorje]

We are hearing from people that are trying to get their retirement, willing to pay their penalty and the taxes and they’re not getting it. They have had to get an attorney to get it and still, they have problems. If you look at everybody’s retirement, it’s not there. The first people who are getting their money is going to go get it. You can do it gradually now; later, suddenly, everybody is going to want their money. We want it now, we want it now. Just like 1929, in one day.

And that’s why I am begging for you, for your future, your family. People are waking up. Just in the last three weeks, we got a mini stampede to Century Silver. So, what has happened in the last three weeks?

 

[Century Silver Exchange]

Well, that’s a good way to describe it, as a mini stampede and um, because there are a lot of people flooding through the doors right now and they are kind of trampling on top of each other. But in the last four weeks, people have exchanged, with Century Silver, about three million dollars for the Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Round. And that’s a really, really rapid pace. Probably faster than what we have ever seen in our history in 12 years.

What we’re talking about here, the money leaving the banks and people trying to get their money out of retirement accounts is exactly what people who are, quote, “in the know,” are doing and um, the example that you gave of this woman from Australia, highlights a point and what many people don’t understand is that if you have money in the bank, and you have money in a retirement account, or a 401k or something like that, it is not your money.

You think it’s your money. It does not become your money until you have it in your hands under your own roof and that doesn’t mean cashing out and putting it in a bank account. A phrase that you’ve used often, a Friend of Medjugorje, and that we echo repeatedly is, if you don’t physically hold it, then you don’t own it, and that particularly refers to physical silver.

Even just pulling your money out of a retirement account and keeping it in cash, so to speak, in your bank or even cash under your mattress, you don’t really own anything but paper. The only way to really take possession of your wealth is to put it into physical silver with the Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Round. You can contact us at Century Silver Exchange by calling 877-936-7686, that’s 877-936-7686.

You need to share this type of information with as many people as possible. It is part of the evangelization of the messages, but part, what a Friend of Medjugorje has talked about repeatedly, that this is part of the physical implementation of Our Lady’s messages into life and separating yourself from the antichrist systems. We will provide free information on the Miraculous Medal Medjugorje Rounds to anybody that you want us to.

We can ship the materials directly to you, for you to give out or we can drop ship to whoever you ask us to if you provide address information. Century Silver Exchange is a For Profit subsidiary of Caritas of Birmingham. It bears its own expenses and pays income taxes on any earnings. If there are any earnings left over at year end, it may make a dividend donation to Caritas to further its missions’ efforts.

 

[A Friend of Medjugorje]

You don’t have to send me a letter, like this lady about the Sabbath. It’s written on the wall. So, I don’t want to hear nothing about, “Why are we talking about silver? You shouldn’t be mentioning silver with Our Lady.” Really? Do you know what Our Lady did? Do you know what She did? Do you know what Joseph did? They took all their gold to Egypt and was able to live there. Isn’t that interesting? If you want to ignore that, go ahead, but you will regret that. There is no time to waste.

 

[Commercial]

How does God deal with nations that have no spirit. One of the founding fathers, George Mason, said, “As nations cannot be rewarded or punished in the next world, they must be in this. By an inevitable chain of causes and effects, Providence punishes national sins by national calamities. When we look at the events around us are we perhaps blind to see what is so plainly before us. The continual stripping away of religious freedoms, and the barrage of laws, regulations, and more laws, the oppressive structure to promote sin through new laws, and on and on. The Scripture so clearly show that when God’s people turned away from Him, it resulted in the loss of freedom and liberty.

For years, Our Lady of Medjugorje has told us, invited us and encouraged us towards reconciling us as a people as well as individually back to God. This July 4th will be special for our nation. Come to the Field at Caritas in Alabama, July 1-5th. Join with thousands across the nations in praying for the resurrection and renewal of ourselves and our country. July 1-5, a Fourth of July in Alabama that will change your life and this nation. Go to Mej.com for more details. Mej, spelled, M-E-J.com or call Caritas as 205-672-2000 USA.

 

[A Friend of Medjugorje]

What you just heard advertised, encourage everybody, every prayer group across this nation. It’s one good thing we can do. And the whole theme on this broadcast, from the letter to the declining of our nation, to the economics and the time we’re in can be described in one message Our Lady says on February 2, 2009:

“…Do not lose time because you are not it’s master…”

The clock is ticking. We are shouting for you to hear and to understand to make moves now. Come July 1-5th and act on everything you’ve just heard on this broadcast. We wish you Our Lady, we love you, goodnight.

    “Nothing is by chance”. I had not listened to this broadcast yet until after Church today. I hadn’t even pulled it up to see what the topic was until after I got home.

    I had just left Church today with my family, only to learn that we weren’t going straight home, but to the store instead for some stuff. Well, long story-short, everything contained within the letter from all the justifications and arguments made in said letter, to FoM’s reaction and scandalized outrage was pretty much exactly how my argument with my folks played out today. My folks made all the excuses about doctors in emergencies, ohhh you gotta tend the chicken coup on a Sunday or else it gets messy and they get sick! Well, I don’t know anything about raising chickens, but I kept trying to remind them about the whole…don’t make others work for you on the Sabbath such as going to the store. It was like talking to a wall though. It is just so aggravating to see people…anywhere, regardless of who they are, who claim to be Christians, care so little about following God’s Commandments. It is one thing to mess up and make an honest mistake. Everyone messes up, but to openly violate the 3rd Commandment immediately after mass to get some groceries when said supplies could have been fetched literally any other day of the week and then make excuses and justifications for it. As annoyed as I am, I guess it just reminds me just how decayed the faith as become. Of course, vast majority of priests I’ve seen would never address such a thing with the congregation in any effort to get Christians to follow the Commandments to the letter, but that is another topic.

    Thanks for these words, FoM, because it really helps upon seeing that I’m at least on the right track with this one. May the Lord continue to bless Caritas.

    But if I remember correctly, the Miraculous Medal cannot be shifted overseas outside the USA. Is it not a grace that Heaven gave especially to the USA? If it can be shifted to Taiwan, I would love to purchase some Miraculous Medal Round.

      Same here in the UK. I would like to, love to, buy at least 4 Miraculous Medal Silver Rounds for my family, to assist in evangelisation. I have bought a little bit of silver troy to leave them but it isn’t the same as consecrated silver.

      Friend of Medjugorje I agree with your words about policeman and doctors having to work and responding to emergencies even relating to animals. This matches my understanding of healing on the Sabbath.

      Yes in the words of Lord Jesus the Sabbath was given for man, not man for the Sabbath BUT it was given for man to keep holy NOT for us to do as we please on that day and certainly not to live like any other day. Jesus’s words that the Sabbath was given for man, can easily be reconciled to the Commandment: “Keep Holy the Sabbath Day.” THAT is the gift of the Sabbath to us. That is what God wanted to give us – the experience of keeping Holy the Sabbath Day and all the Blessings that follow when we observe this – when Jesus said the Sabbath was given for man, not man for the Sabbath. I have given this quite a bit of thought and it is very easy to reconcile Lord Jesus’s words with the 3rd Commandment.

    Mathew 7:13-14
    Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the road broad that leads to destruction, and those who enter through it are many. How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to life. And those who find it are few.

    The broad road is bumper to bumper with lukewarm people. If most of the world is going the same direction as you are, then that is a very good indication that going the opposite way is the right move. We need to be narrow minded. Meaning heading towards the narrow gate. We will be living constricted. Meaning saying no to what the culture says yes to. We have to pray and ask Our Lady to help us do it. FOM is right in being angry, I’m angry too. There is too much compromise and God ends up in last place over and over and over again!

    I 100% agree with you FOM regarding the sabbath and the 3rd commandment. It just makes sense that it is our fault and I think you or someone else said abortion will be gone only when we start to obey all the commandments, God will listen to us again only when we obey him as a whole. I don’t mean he doesn’t listen to individuals with graces attached by him, but as a nation he will only help when the majority are back honouring Our God as we should do. As I am from Australia I had a hassle recently regarding my retirement account (we have different names down here and call them Superannuation Funds) because they are obviously trying to slow down the physical ownership of silver. This company is backed by one of our State Governments and I had to reidentify my retirement account again (even though I had already purchased Gold and Silver many times previously). Further, this company had a bad story appear in the news suddenly that they weren’t selling 99.9999% silver and gold as advertised. The story was easily debunked but no doubt had an effect on some people down under buying Gods metals. Keep up the great work FOM, you are over the target when you get criticized. God Bless.

I don’t mean he doesn’t listen to individuals with graces attached by him, but as a nation he will only help when the majority are back honouring Our God as we should do. As I am from Australia I had a hassle recently regarding my retirement account (we have different names down here and call them Superannuation Funds) because they are obviously trying to slow down the physical ownership of silver. This company is backed by one of our State Governments and I had to reidentify my retirement account again (even though I had already purchased Gold and Silver many times previously). Further, this company had a bad story appear in the news suddenly that they weren’t selling 99.9999% silver and gold as advertised. The story was easily debunked but no doubt had an effect on some people down under buying Gods metals. Keep up the great work FOM, you are over the target when you get criticized. God Bless.
