Today’s apparition of Our Lady to Medjugorje visionary Mirjana took place at the Blue Cross on Apparition Mountain. Some pilgrims began their way as early as last night, and spent the night on the mountain. It was cloudy with a slight drizzle throughout the night. Early in the morning the sky cleared and dawn began to break over the village of Medjugorje. Rosaries and singing went on throughout the night and into the morning. Around 8:20 am, Mirjana arrived in anticipation of Our Lady’s apparition. Our Lady came around 8:45, and the apparition lasted about 6 minutes. Following is the description and message from Our Lady to Mirjana October 2, 2010.
Our Lady of Medjugorje’s October 2, 2010, Message
on the day for non-believers through Mirjana
The Battle, The Weapon, Patiently Wait, Apostles, Triumph –
A ‘Wow’ Message from Our Lady
In the dark, at 3:30 a.m. in the bedroom of the home in Alabama where Our Lady has appeared to Medjugorje visionary Marija so many times, this short prayer was prayed before this second of the month message was read:
“My Lord…please…give my heart wisdom and understanding of humility…”
Naturally, to read Our Lady’s words and see the word “humble” twice in the first sentence, the word “heart” in the second sentence, and then “humble” a third time in the message is moving to one’s heart, having just prayed for such. At the same time, Our Lady wants to connect with all of us in order to “…make you capable of recognizing God’s signs…” These encounters come upon one as a sweet gentle breeze, but with the impact upon the heart as a mighty wind.
Our Lady desires strongly and urgently, because of the signs of the times, to show you the Truth. She desires this so that you can display Truth with your life and in humble love, especially to those who “seek their truth in darkness of lies.” Everyone has their own truth which they believe, but not everyone has Truth. There is a great battle in our midst. You must understand Truth and then live it in such a way as to witness Truth in your life. The weapon, the most powerful armament to have in your life is Truth presented with constant and unwavering patience and boundless love. The contemplation of a personal message given by Our Lady through Marija on this 24th anniversary coming up this October 6, in which Our Lady said in part of the message, to “live in humility,” adds particular potency to today’s message. The October 6, 1986 message has been in the heart, these days, for reflection and renewal and is a sign to you that humility is a keystone for anyone wishing to enter into the life God has for you. When we approach Him as the nothings that we are, the contrast of His holiness can then shine upon us making us truly see what we are, the worm within us, and thereby we are led to be in awe of His love that He calls us His sons.
The following must read was written eleven days ago, on September 21, 2010 by A Friend of Medjugorje for Caritas of Birmingham’s monthly newsletter called Words of the Harvesters. It is a preface to Our Lady’s message given “today” October 2, 2010. It is a must read because Our Lady mentioned the “darkness of lies” and also “truth”. What is truth?
Witnessing the Death of Civilization
I run from hate
I run from prejudice, I run from pessimists
but I run too late
I run my life, or is it running me
Run from my past, I run too fast
Or too slow it seems
When lies become the truth
That’s when I run to You
This world keeps spinning faster
To a new disaster
So I run to You
I run to You
When it all starts coming undone
You’re the only One I run to
I run to You
Never before have so many lies been put forth in society than in our time. Distortions of the truth, from the news, advertising, consumerism, politicians, the government, educational institutions, the money system, relationships and a thousand more things which could be named, the lie of it all abounds. If you scoff at this statement, you are very clouded in your ability to see what is going on around you. To the degree one looks with the “glasses,” known as Our Lady’s messages, to judge the condition of man’s present culture and where it’s headed is to the degree you will see the lie of it all. Where is the truth? Pontius Pilate asked Jesus, “What is truth?” Our Lady has told us what is truth. Our Lady said:
June 16, 1983
The absence of truth means there is an absence of God in the world. This holds true for the Christian’s heart as well. Many Christians, Our Lady says, live like pagans.
Therefore, many Christians do not have God in their hearts in the first place, and therefore, do not accept truth, despite the multitudes who would believe that they have truth. Because truth holds together and builds culture, untruth leads to the culture spinning faster and further apart, heading it towards disaster. As culture falls more towards lies than towards truth, it changes into a civilization. Civilizations are what we look at as people in the past. All cultures which turned to lies became civilizations. Our present civilization is just such—a civilization which is without a future. It is no longer a culture built on truth, which was what caused it to thrive and grow. Rather, we have become a civilization based in lies and, therefore, we are in decline. The culture is dying, as the judgment of truth is against this present generation’s wayward ways. How can it be said as full truth that our civilization is without a future? The judgment of truth is the judgment of God. Jesus is the only future. If God is Truth, Jesus, Son of God, is Truth. It is Truth, Our Lady Herself, who said Jesus is the only future. Our Lady said:
December 25, 2008
The world is rejecting Jesus. It is happening through the courts, the choice of entertainments and lifestyles, in government and politics. In virtually every aspect of society, Jesus is being rejected. But Truth’s light will drive away all darkness. Being that the world is in darkness, it is, therefore, headed for a crash. Though at the moment this is prophetically stated, the present way of life of this society will become known as a civilization that joined the many others of history. Yet the moral decline of those past civilizations did not reach the measure of depravity we, in our time, have. A grossly erred civilization built on lies cannot, will not, nor has ever withstood the forces of confrontation when truth was laid in its path. The stone wall of truth crushes that which runs into it. This civilization is headed straight for the wall of God’s truth. When God visits the earth, He actually comes among His people. The confrontation between the two conflicting sides will result in only one being victorious. It will be a clear victory. The track record of survival of all civilizations in history who pit their lies vs. truth is “0” victories. When God comes among His people, His track record of truth vs. lies is 100% victorious. When evil matures to the point of no return, history shows that God’s decisions are decisive.
The Messenger of God comes among His children. God tells the Messenger what to say to His people. The Woman tells us God’s message, His desires, His plans, His warning of satan who will rob you of the joy of life. Our Lady said:
July 25, 1985
By contrast the voices of society tell us satan’s message, satan’s desires, satan’s warning that God is the one who will rob you of the joy of life. Today, September 21, 2010, as this was being written, we were faxed a report from a supporter that a bureau made up of economic academies declared the 2008-2010 recession is officially over! Do you believe this? Do you believe it because this is declared by the “Learned” who are known as experts? Or does the Holy Spirit tell you something else than the academies? What does Scripture tell you? It tells you this is another lie, a lie to make you not sure of the way Our Lady is calling and guiding you in – a change of direction. Our Lady said:
February 21, 1982
The lie is to convince you this civilization is recovering, so just relax. We are going back to the economic days of 2007 — Boom days! Yes, the academic bureau panel said there are still difficulties ahead, but the recession is over!!
We tell you it cannot be over, it is impossible. How can it not be over? How is this impossible? Our Lady’s messages and the Scriptures show it to be so. When there is a spiritual recession, it will result in a recession of the world’s well-being. You will not, you cannot be in spiritual decline and the civilization and its other elements prosper. The way of life is intrinsically connected to a good or bad well-being, depending on the moral condition of society. This is why we must oppose the acceptance of sin in society and in our laws which would protect sin as normal behavior. For example, it is not accepted of those who claim a right to run a red light, that they should have the freedom to do so. Why do we not allow such a right? What if they say: “I cannot help it. I confess I was born a red light runner. I, therefore, want the public to accept me for who and what I am.” Would this be absurd? Of course it would. But far more absurd is to accept and give rights to immoral behavior. Throughout our culture, there are agendas set in motion with countless efforts to force society to accept as normal behavior, abnormal behavior. This always, always leads to the destruction of the culture, turning it into a past civilization, if there is no public resistance and the reversing of these agendas and laws. Many Christians think: “Well, if this group or another group wants the right to live sin, they should have that right. It’s their business.” Many Christians say, “Who am I to say others cannot be socially accepted if they are living in sin?” Then who are you to say a stoplight runner, who believes it is his right to run red lights, should not have that right? Of course, you would say, “No, you have no right even though you believe you should have the right to run a red light.” But why? Because there are things that are right and wrong by nature. There is a black and white difference in being right by nature as opposed to being wrong by nature. There is no gray zone. In fact, as clear as this example is as to the damaging consequences of being a red light runner, this example still leans more to a gray zone, when compared to the sinful behavior that many Christians are giving way to having protected in our law and culture. In this latter scenario, there is no area of grayness.
Studying history, the prevalent immorality cultured in society is shown more dangerous than people who began running red lights as their right. Running red lights would hurt or kill some. But public acceptance of sin and allowing it to enter the life of the culture, without resistance and stopping it, leads to the whole public being hurt and killed. God’s judgment visits not only those who choose to live depraved lifestyles, but also those who accept it into society. Do you not get it? Do you not see the lie? Do you not see the truth? You cannot live, go to church and yet accept pagan ways in the culture without the whole civilization dying. With acceptance, even though you do not agree with the sin, you become an accessory. The attitude that says, “Who am I to say to another, we will not accept blatant sin in the culture,” will cause you to be judged with the sin.
So, what is truth? All that is of God. So, what is the lie? All that is of satan. We cannot accept, as a culture, by or through apathy, the change of common law that would allow new trends or new protective laws which sanitize sins. To do so would make us a people traveling the path that would lead into a stone wall of truth, wrecking civilization, as once was said, “into the trash heap of history.” Our Lady is coming, as God’s Messenger of truth to give us warnings from God to come back to His way, His commandments, His love, His mercy, and His forgiveness. For those who do not, a stone wall is around the curve.
You will be receiving in a week or so a very important announcement. The Fifth Report Update of Retooling the Tabernacle of Our Lady’s Messages. The Retooling is a massive plan for the inculturalization of Our Lady’s messages throughout the world. It is the most important spiritual project in the world of the Medjugorje Movement. (This was written to Caritas’ mail list. If you electronically mail us your physical address – see below – or call Caritas at 205-672-2000, you can receive free from us the special announcement).
The results of the Retooling will impact the whole world. The timing of this large project, to culturalize the message around the world with the written word, is to give “how to’s” through the message to transform and birth new cultures which will rise up out of the “trash heap of history.” Paralleling this at the same time, the written messages will be the means which will annihilate present civilization into the trash heap of those societies who fell throughout history. Though many will not fully grasp what is written, the going away of life as we know it, and how crushing it will be, cannot be measured or even imagined by all in the present. The destruction of the present and the birth of new cultures will experience the labor of birth in very painful ways. All that can be said is, now is the time. Now is Her time, and all who contribute to Her efforts will walk toward the light of truth. It won’t be found in other religions. While respect for other religions is a Christian tenet, we cannot deny Our Lady’s words to them.
December 25, 2008
All else, all other religions, all movements, sects, and ways will fail. Why? Because Our Lady says so.
July 25, 2010
Please be in serious prayer about the 5th update. Of all updates, this is the most important and one which you will find more interesting than the other updates in bringing Truth to the world by bringing His Mother to the world.
In the Hope of Truth
In the Love of Our Lady,
A Note from Caritas of Birmingham/Medjugorje.com:
Our Lady speaks of victory in Her message today. She said: “…I will triumph…” In order to have “victory” and to “triumph”, it means that there is a battle, in which one side is defeated while the other is victorious. In the above article, it speaks of the necessary death of civilization that will pave the way for Our Lady’s way recreating the culture that will bring in a new springtime of the Church. We see a great parallel between what Our Lady said in Her message today and these thoughts She inspired in the above writing. For that reason, we encourage you to take the time to reread both the message and this article several times together, to gain greater insight in “recognizing God’s signs” in “the present time.”
October 2, 2010
Again, the above article, “Witnessing the Death of Civilization”, was written on September 21st. In light of this connection to Our Lady’s October 2, 2010 message, we think you would be very interested in the free Retooling update which speaks about being an apostle as Our Lady mentioned in Her October 2, 2010 message today.
Join the Caritas Community in Their Annual 9-Day Bread and Water Fasting Novena – Oct. 25-Nov. 2, 2010
For the 9-day fasting novena you will be assigned a single day of 2011 in which your fast will be offered to bind satan from his activity for our Nation and the world. You can call Caritas of Birmingham to receive the day your fast will sponsor. Your day is assigned in the order you call us. You may call 205-672-2000 to be given the day of 2011 that your 9-day fasting novena, beginning October 25, 2010, and finishing November 2, 2010, will cover. It is important you receive a day so that we can be sure all 365 days of 2011 will be covered by an individual with a 9-day fast. Again the 9-day fasting novena is October 25-November 2, 2010, and your assigned day for 2011 is not a fast day, rather the day that you are assigned in 2011 to be covered in prayer by your October 25–November 2, 2010, 9-day fast.
On March 18, 1996, in a message given through Mirjana, Our Lady said: “…On this message, which I give you today through my servant, I desire for you to reflect a long time…” “In the past, Our Lady has never used a title such as this in any public message given to any one of the six visionaries, nor has it been Her custom to patronize them with useless words or exaggerations. What Our Lady said, She meant. Our Lady is known as a servant, so much so that She obtained and now holds Her position in Heaven and upon the earth through Her earthly life of obedience and service.”
