The Coming Persecution
A reading from the Gospel of Saint Luke 21, 12 – 19:
Jesus said, “Before all this happens (He referred to the end of the world), however, they will seize and persecute you, they will hand you over to the synagogue and to prisons, and they will have you led before kings and governors because of my name. It will lead to your giving testimony. Remember, you are not to prepare your defense beforehand, for I myself shall give you a wisdom in speaking that all your adversaries will be powerless to resist or refute. You will even be handed over by parents, brothers, relatives, and friends, and they will put some of you to death. You will be hated by all because of my name, but not a hair on your head will be destroyed. By your perseverance you will secure your lives.”
I went to New Brunswick this afternoon to see my friend. He is working with my lawyer and everything is going well at this time. There is a woman trying to cause trouble and the lawyer said that she was like the devil. So I prayed to the Lord to defeat her. Now I won a great round today concerning her. I am so happy and I pray that the lawyer will soon announce that everything is over. Please pray that the Lord will accomplish a great feat.
Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,
“Have great perseverance My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters when the persecution will begin. The evil people will attack all those who believe in Me. They will be arrested and thrown into prison and they will be brought before the courts and the judges. Remember you will have to give your testimony but do not worry for I will give you the words you will have to say. You will have great wisdom in speaking. Do not be afraid because if you persevere not a hair of your head will be destroyed. So remain always close to Me.
What is horrible in the world today is that there are so many people who have rejected faith and no longer pray or go to church. My heavenly Father is ready to let a great punishment fall on these people if there is not a change soon. Pray My friends, that these may receive the gift of faith and return to believe in Me and to pray. In this way the punishment will be avoided like the people of Nineveh. Pray every day for this great conversation. I bless you all.”
