BOOK OF REVELATION
GOD’S PHROPHESY TO JOHN,
CHAPTER 1 – 3 and 12
(The Book of Revelation chapter 1, 2, 3 and 12 is translated
based on the recording of the presentation in Semarang
on 14 January 2003, as the guidance of John, the apostle,
on 6 December 2002 at Purwokerto)
The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave to him, to show
his servants what must happen soon. He made it known by sending
his angel to his servant John,
The Revelation book is not a work of literature, but it is the Word of
God, so it cannot be looked at as a work of literature. The Bible is
not a work of literature but the Word of everlasting God, so whatever
is said here, whatever must shortly come to pass, it is also applicable
to us now. Lord Jesus granted this Revelation to John, the apostle, to
be passed down to His children, i.e. to us all.
(He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John,)
who gives witness to the word of God and to the testimony of
Jesus Christ by reporting what he saw.
John, the apostle testified about the Word of God which was Jesus Himself
and about who Jesus Christ was, as the live witness whom saw everything
done by Jesus. John, the apostle is the most loyal and beloved Jesus’ disciple.
He is the first joined disciple. John, the apostle, before, was a disciple
of John, the Baptist, together with Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter.
And to them, John, the Baptist, pointed to Jesus: “Look, He is
the Lamb of God who carries the sins of the world”. Since that
time, John and Andrew followed Jesus, then Jesus asked: “What do
you want?” (John1:35-39). “Where does Master live?” asked
John. “Follow Me”. Then they lived with Jesus, talked, and
they went back to Galilee. In the New Testament, we read that Jesus called
His first disciples: Simon, Andrew, John and James, and they all followed
Him right away. John followed everything in Jesus’ life from the
beginning, faithfully until Jesus died on the cross. To John, the apostle,
Lord Jesus gave Mother Mary to be his mother, and John himself represented
all of us (John 19:27). They lived together until Mother Mary was taken
up to Heaven. This completed Jesus’ journey and the disciples;
it completed what must be told. But this was not just it, because, beside
The Gospel of John, there is an additional Book from John, namely “THE
BOOK OF REVELATION”.
of Revelation is not what John had experienced but was what granted
to him both by visions and also by heavenly voices. Why was this
Revelation given to John? Because John was the most faithful apostle
and John was living with Mary, Jesus’ mother. Why was John,
the apostle, given to The Community of Charity Services of the Blessed
Mother? Because this community, always work together with Mother
Mary. That is why we should be happy, here it is said:
blessed is the one who reads aloud and blessed are those who
listen to this prophetic message and heed what is written in
it, for the appointed time is near.
We are called blessed, because we read, hear, and obey this prophecy.
The journey of the Community of Charity Services of the Blessed Mother
is the journey of fulfillment of the Revelation. The phrase said, “the
time is at hand”; what was said here was not the
prophecy of the end of the world. The time
is at hand for the purification of the world, for this
part of the Book of Revelation does not speak of the end of world, but
the preparation of the time before the end of the world. At the end of
the Book of Revelation, we will read MARANATHA, “Come, O Lord Jesus!” Thus,
Lord Jesus has not come yet for the second time, according to the prophecy
in this part of the Book of Revelation. The Book of Revelation is given
to prepare us and to explain about the time of purification of the world.
John, to the seven churches in Asia: grace to you and peace
from him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the
seven spirits before his throne,
This was addressed to the seven Churches in Asia. During the time this
book was written at John, the apostle’s old age in Patmos Island,
it was addressed to the Churches in Asia, but the Word of God is alive
and everlasting, so it is also addressed to us. The number of seven (7)
represents a perfect number; it is addressed to all of God’s children
throughout the world. Greeting from Him which is, and which was, and
which is to come, it is the greeting from God Himself. The everlasting
God and it is said,
and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn
of the dead and ruler of the kings of the earth.
This does not mean there is a difference between The Everlasting God
and Jesus Christ, but it is told from Jesus Christ because men know Jesus
Christ. So, John, the apostle conveyed the greeting from Jesus who was
dead and rose from the dead and the Ruler of the kings of the earth.
Then there was praise: To him who loves
us and has freed us from our sins by his blood,
who has made us into a kingdom, priests for his God and Father,
to him be glory and power forever (and ever). Amen.
John, the apostle, invited us to praise Him, Who took our sins away by
His blood. Jesus Who gathered us into the kingdom of God’s children.
He made us priests; God’s priests, who were assigned to sanctify
God’s children. To Jesus - be glory and power forever and ever.
Behold, he is coming amid the clouds, and every eye will see
him, even those who pierced him. All the peoples of the earth
will lament him. Yes. Amen.
John, the apostle, prophesied the coming of Jesus at the end of the world.
He comes on the clouds, and every one shall see Him, His followers and
also those who betrayed, refused, and pierced Him. All nations of the
earth will mourn over of Him.
am the Alpha and the Omega," says the Lord God, "the
one who is and who was and who is to come, the almighty."
Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, which is and which was,
and which is to come, all have one meaning: the everlasting God which
is Jesus Christ Himself.
I, John, your brother, who share with you the distress, the
kingdom, and the endurance we have in Jesus,
John, the apostle, made himself equal to us as brother and companion
in sharing our suffering, because he was alienated in Patmos Island.
But just there he had the assignment by God to write the Book of Revelation.
In the kingdom of God’s children, we are waiting patiently for
Jesus Christ. We all, in the Community of Charity Services of the Blessed
Mother are addressed by John, since the community patiently waits for
Jesus Christ. I found myself on the
island called Patmos because I proclaimed God's word and gave testimony
to Jesus. John was in Patmos Island as he was alienated
because of Jesus, because of his testimony of Jesus.
I was caught up in spirit on the Lord's day
On the Lord’s Day, but actually everyday is the Lord’s Day.
Everyday is the Lord’s Day also for us. The words I
was in the Spirit showed that from then on John
was fully guided by Jesus’ Spirit, The Holy Spirit. (What we experience
in the Community of Charity Services of the Blessed Mother, while listening
to Lord Jesus and Mother Mary, the outsider who do not understand, said
that she, ‘the chosen’ one who was to deliver those messages,
was ‘possessed’ by Lord Jesus and Mother Mary. They addressed
that cynically to Agnes. But we know from the Book of Revelation that
the actual thing is, she was not possessed by something bad, but guided
by The Spirit, and that is different. Possessed by something means being
powerless and with dark souls. But in Spirit means we are in God’s
own Spirit, is being possessed by the Holy Spirit, just like what happened
to John. That what actually happens when Lord Jesus and Mother Mary deliver
Their messages through Their Microphone, Agnes Sawarno) and
heard behind me a voice as loud as a trumpet,
which said, "Write on a scroll what you see and send it
to the seven churches: to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira,
Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea."
There are seven churches in Asia then, but as I said it represents all
God’s churches. There are seven churches whose conditions will
be discussed one by one. These conditions also apply to us now with the
same condition then. Once again, God’s Word is everlasting, thus
it also applies to these days. There are warnings and confirmation in
each letter to each God’s church, which we will discuss later.
Then I turned to see whose voice it was that spoke to me, and
when I turned, I saw seven gold lampstands.
and in the midst of the lampstands one like a son of man,
Who is the Son of man? He is Jesus Himself. John said, He was like the
Son of man because he hardly knew Him as he knew Jesus in His ordinary
time. Here, the Son of man appeared with all His Glories: wearing
an ankle-length robe, with a gold sash around his chest
The hair of his head was as white as white wool or as snow, and
his eyes were like a fiery flame.
His feet were like polished brass refined in a furnace, and his
voice was like the sound of rushing water.
1:16 In his right hand he held seven stars. A sharp two-edged sword came
out of his mouth, and his face shone like the sun at its brightest.
John will use all the characteristics of the Son of man in all His glory,
later, to explain every address to the seven churches, by saying Who
He was, namely the Son of man, Who was Jesus Himself. And John would
explain in the periscopes that followed, that those characteristics were
aimed at the situation of each of the churches.
When I caught sight of him, I fell down at his feet as though
Why did John, the apostle fell at His feet? Because he saw God the Lord,
in all His glory, and he realized how unworthy he was as man. He fell
at His feet like a dead man. He touched
me with his right hand and said, "Do not be afraid. (To
us in this Community of Charity Services of the Blessed Mother, how often
we hear this greeting, either publicly or individually. Jesus said, ‘Fear
not’ and is usually followed by you are not alone; fear not, I
am with you; fear not, I strengthen you, and so on). it is I, I
am the first and the last,
the one who lives. Once I was dead, but now I am alive forever
and ever. I hold the keys to death and the netherworld.
Jesus confirmed to John not to be afraid, because This was really Jesus
he knew, but Jesus in all His glory. This is Jesus, The Everlasting God.
John knew Jesus had died, risen, and appeared Himself, then ascended
to heaven, but John has just seen that He is alive eternally, and He
has the power over the death.
Write down, therefore, what you have seen, and what is happening,
and what will happen afterwards
Write this down, said Jesus. Write it as My command, the Almighty God,
The Eternal God and Powerful that you knew as Jesus who had died but
lived again. Write what you see now! Once again the word ‘now’ is
everlasting, because it applies right now, and what will happen next.
This is the secret meaning of the seven stars you saw in my
right hand, and of the seven gold lampstands: the seven stars
are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands
are the seven churches.
This is the secret. We will also find many symbolic words such as: star,
candlesticks, dragon, seals, horse, trumpet, chalice and many more later.
The angels are also symbols. The secret of seven stars is the seven churches
angels, and the seven candlesticks are the seven churches themselves.
The church angel means the wholly faith or the well maintained faith
situation in the church.
hear the first greeting to the Ephesus church in chapter 2:
To the angel of the church in Ephesus, write this: 'The one
who holds the seven stars in his right hand and walks in the
midst of the seven gold lampstands says this:
Jesus, God, it is He Who said the words. He held the faith of seven churches
in His hand. He knew the churches well, in other words; He held them
in His hands. He walked amongst His churches throughout the world (Cf. “I
am with you always, even unto the end of the world” Matthew 28:20)
His message to Ephesus church:
know your works, your labor, and your endurance, and that you
cannot tolerate the wicked; you have tested those who call
themselves apostles but are not, and discovered that they are
Jesus acknowledged His churches’ works since He was among them.
Their works were impatiently analyzing the wrong teachings. That is what
the meaning of God’s Words here. You are impatient with bad people;
you try on them who called themselves apostles. It applies these days,
too. They do not easily believe what anyone says as something new. They
diligently do it; trying it out because that is their tasks. Because
He said that He knew their tasks, testing everything, indeed was the
Church responsibility. Jesus said, “I
know your works!” (Let’s say now Jesus
is speaking to the Church Hierarchy: I know you are testing the Community
of Charity Services of the Blessed Mother, just as they did it to the
others. This is what is happening now, as we heard from John, the apostle,
related to our community). I know you are testing them for you had tested
many communities in the past and found them deceivers.
Moreover, you have endurance and have suffered for my name,
and you have not grown weary
It is true that they do not ever get tired. Jesus said, “I know”,
Jesus did not say I appraise you, no! He said I knew about your works,
but in verse 4, He said:
Yet I hold this against you:
How could Jesus be possible to have something against His own Church?
His Church hierarchy is diligently testing ‘everything new’,
so the Church remains faithful in Righteousness. Jesus criticized them
not because of the work but because you
have lost the love you had at first. Which is the
right ways of acting as a leader: with love, investigating and observing
among everything with love. Jesus criticized their ways in their leaving
out love. Here is said “I criticized you”, because you have
left your first love; you are no longer using your wisdom, you are using
judgment, instead. The final judgment is given before the investigation
Realize how far you have fallen. Repent, and do the works you
did at first. which are shepherding God’s
children with love Otherwise,
I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place,
It was previously said that the seven candlesticks were the seven Churches.
If the Churches were taken away, to whom the words were addressed? It
was addressed to the leaders of the folks, which are the priests, the
bishops, and our shepherds. If priests and shepherds do not have folks,
what was left to them? …….Jesus said, unless you repent.
But you have this in your favor: you hate the works of the
Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
In God’s Revelation to John, there were also messages written for
the time being. That time, the Nicolaitans’ followers belonged
to a community that screwed up Jesus’ teachings. Jesus hated them
for screwing up His teachings. ‘Hate’ which means He feels
sad knowing they would not have Salvation. And the Hierarchy hated them
here is said
Whoever has ears ought to hear what the Spirit says to the
churches. The Spirit here is Spirit of
Christ Himself. To the victor
I will give the right to eat from the tree of life that is
in the garden of God.
Let us have a quick look. The word ‘overcome’ always
reflects a situation of war or trial, one wins and the other looses.
Here, is a prophecy of a situation after the purification of the world,
after the three days of darkness. Who would win? They will be those who
believe Mother Mary’s messages, who believe in Mother Mary’s
prophecy about the world purification, which had actually been prophesied
in the Book of Revelation. We will see it later. It is said to whom that
overcomes; I will give to eat of the tree of life. (As Mother Mary’s
messages said, when we were serving in Pangudiluhur Middle school (SMP)
in 1999, “Don’t you ask what will happen after the purification
of the world finished, what will you eat, what will you drink, what will
you wear, for God Himself will feed you. Yes, that is Heavenly word).
It is again said here, ‘I will give to eat of the tree
of life’, which means that we do not have to worry as
we will not die of hunger. We will live spiritually from the tree of
life from God’s Garden of Eden.
the angel of the church in Smyrna, write this: " 'The first
and the last, who once died but came to life, says this:
the word of Jesus Himself.
know your tribulation and poverty, but you are rich. I know
the slander of those who claim to be Jews and are not, but
rather are members of the assembly of Satan.
Jesus knows the situation of His Church in Smyrna. This situation exists
also these days. Jesus knows because He is walking between the
golden candlesticks. He is always present among His Church.
Thus, He knows if they have tribulation because they are poor,
but they are actually rich, rich in Jesus. He knows that they
are slandered. It is said people called themselves Jews, those who knew
of Moses’ Torah, but they are actually the synagogues of
Satan, because they do not practice the Torah. It also happens
today, people say they know God’s laws, but it is actually not
God’s true laws, it is what they created from ‘their god’ and
they declared themselves as if they were the real synagogue, while they
are actually the synagogues of Satan.
Do not be afraid of anything that you are going to suffer.
Indeed, the devil will throw some of you into prison that you
may be tested, and you will face an ordeal for ten days.
10 days is a symbolic word, the length could be longer or shorter depending
on one who is experiencing it. Shall cast into prison means ‘will
experience no liberty to express his faith’. Behold, the
devil will cast you, so you will have tribulation, you will
be tried. Remain faithful until death,
not only for ten days but be faithful unto death, which means, you are
to be faithful, even though, because of it, you will die. It is stressed
upon us; this is really our choice, whether or not we want to be faithful.
The faithfulness could cost our lives. But, if we are faithful until
the end, and I will give you the crown
of life. What is the crown of life? It is the everlasting
Whoever has ears ought to hear what the Spirit says to the
churches. The victor shall not be harmed by the second death.
Earlier it was said to be faithful until the end, even though, you will
suffer. There, we will face the first death. But the faithful ones will
not be hurt of the second death. What does it mean by second death? It
is the end of the world. Those who are not faithful will die, and at
the end of the world they will die for the second time in everlasting
suffering. For those who are faithful, they will not suffer from anything
at the end of the world, for they will receive the everlasting life and
Then here is a situation of Pergamum Church, which is also the same situation
as ours these days.
the angel of the church in Pergamum, write this: " 'The
one with the sharp two-edged sword says this:
the meaning of sharp sword is when used to cut, will not cut from the
right or left side only, but at all angles.
2:13 "I know that you live
where Satan's throne is, and yet you hold fast to my name and have
not denied your faith in me, not even in the days of Antipas, my
faithful witness, who was martyred among you, where Satan lives.
" I know that you live where Satan's throne is, What
kind of situation is this? Which Church is this addressed to? "I
know that you live where Satan's throne is, Then, we had
enlightenment from John, the apostle, in which situation people live, like it
is stated in this verse. Do you know where God’s Church stays at this moment in
Satan's throne? Look at the situation in Ambon and Poso.
There, God’s Churches suffer from the evil’s powers, among them who
accept Satan as their King.
yet you hold fast to my name and have not denied your faith in
me, not even in the days of Antipas, my faithful witness, who
was martyred among you, where Satan lives.
At that time (in ancient Church), Jesus’ martyrs were killed because
of their faith. But this also applies to Jesus’ martyrs who were
killed in Ambon, in Poso, and in many other places in our country, where
Jesus’ followers were killed because of their faiths.
Yet I have a few things against you. You have some people there
who hold to the teaching of Balaam, who instructed Balak to put
a stumbling block before the Israelites: to eat food sacrificed
to idols and to play the harlot.
(Then, we had an enlightenment that this also happened at this time in
Ambon and Poso). Let’s go back to the Old Testament to the King
of Balak era, those who fought against Israel. They gave advices to cast
a stumbling block at Israel people. Bileam was one of them; we could
say he was a shaman who gave wrong advices to the Israel people to eat
things sacrificed into idols and to commit fornication. What it means
by fornication is not anything related to sex, but casting aspersions
in faith. This situation is being done these days; there are some people
among you who eat things sacrificed unto idols, it casts aspersions in
faith. What does it mean? We know the situation either in Ambon or Poso
among God’s children. They take revenge of God’s children
by killing the enemies. Luckily, the Catholic God’s children are
not included among them.
Likewise, you also have some people who hold to the teaching
of (the) Nicolaitans.
So, some people claim themselves Christian, but they actually digress
Therefore, repent. Otherwise, I will come to you quickly and
wage war against them with the sword of my mouth.
His sword with two eyes, this will cut those who use God’s name
to kill others. Thus the enemies will be defeated, but they, who used
God’s name to kill, will also be killed. And if they get killed,
do not cry and ask: “We were in war because of His name, why God
left us?” No, God never asked us to kill our enemies, but to forgive.
Whoever has ears ought to hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
To the victor I shall give some of the hidden manna;
Manna was the food in the desert for the children of Israel when the
food stock finished. The hidden manna will be given to us when we overcome
the three days of darkness. It is said it is hidden, we don’t know
it yet, but we will get that food. We will not be hungry; don’t
be afraid. Be diligent and be faithful so we will overcome it with Jesus
until that day comes.
And this is important: I shall also
give a white amulet upon which is inscribed a new name, which no one
knows except the one who receives it.
In the beginning of Mother Mary’s messages, “My children
who are united in the Community of Charity Services of the Blessed Mother
will receive ‘seals’. The seals are what will be provided.
Previously, we were wondering what seals will be given by Mother Mary?
We have the seal of baptism, what other seals will be given? We understood
we had been given something unique; the Community of Charity Services
of the Blessed Mother has been given a ‘personal touch’,
the touch of God’s love. We can feel the presence of Lord Jesus
and Mother Mary. Is this the seal? Should not the seals be visible for
one who will be saved?
What is the seal? Here it is told they would receive, I
shall also give a white amulet upon which is inscribed a new name,
Who is the new name from? Is the new name for us? Later, we will get
to know about that. New name, who is it from? No one knows unless one
received it. We know that new name and He would give the new name to
us. He knew and He saved us, but the enemies do not know. And they do
not have the white stone, the seal with the new name. It is the new name
And an understanding about it was given to the Community of Charity Services
of the Blessed Mother. The new name of Jesus is God Himself Who is The
Father, The Everlasting God. Jesus is the Father Himself; He is the only
God. We know the Holy Trinity, Who is the same God incarnated into a
Man and gave His Holy Spirit to guide us until He comes to pick up our
souls. In this community, we know about it, as we got enlightenment.
But the Book of Revelation also tells about it. The one and only God
is Jesus. Who are we to be told this? We could not boast to say that
we know the secret. Not that! So from now on we no longer duplicate God,
i.e. having another deity besides God, because we would not find any
other God. We worship Jesus, not only as The Savior, not only as The
Man Who saved us (God incarnated into man), but because He is The actual
One God. And we know that, we could be certain we could overcome with
Him if we hold on to Him. That is why the secret was given to us, not
for us to keep but for us to convey bravely by saying: “When the
end of the world comes, the Name of Jesus will no longer exist, He is
The Everlasting God, and there is no other God. Thus, anything Jesus
says, anything Jesus does is the Truth, since He is the Truth Himself.
He is The Absolute Truth; He Himself is the Way and Truth, and Life!
the angel of the church in Thyatira, write this: " 'The
Son of God, whose eyes are like a fiery flame and whose feet
are like polished brass, says this:
He is Jesus Himself. Why does it still use the term ‘Son of God’,
Why does it? Because, we know this term; if we have to face directly
The One God, Who we never come into contact, it will be hard for us to
understand Him. No one has met God except for One Who come from heaven.
We know Jesus that has been given to us, and we have accepted all His
teachings in Church. We know Jesus, for that reason we still use the
term of language, but after the end of the world, the name of Jesus will
no longer exist. It is The Everlasting God. (as per Lord Jesus’ messages
2:19 I know your works, your
love, faith, service, and endurance, and that your last works are
greater than the first.
He told the message like this: I know your activities, your love, your
faith, your service and your perseverance, and I know how you are still
making progress. Which situation is described here? It is the situation
of the communities that work diligently and hard conveying Jesus. There
are many communities go globally. This is the evangelism movement, a
preaching movement, and a movement of telling the Good News from God
constantly and thundered.
Yet I hold this against you, that you tolerate the woman Jezebel,
who calls herself a prophetess, who teaches and misleads my
servants to play the harlot and to eat food sacrificed to idols.
What does this mean? Jesus disapproved them for letting Jezebel (during
Ancient Church, she was Nicolas’ follower) cast aspersions in God’s
teachings. Here it is said eating food
which has been sacrificed to idols, which means
doing bad things, away from God’s teaching itself. What does this
mean? To whom does God address it? Doing big jobs in preaching the Kingdom
of God but casting aspersions at the same time? Who are they? (Without
intention of, judging any communities). We see many preaching communities;
they go to Singapore to serve Indonesian God’s children in Singapore,
some go to Australia to visit Perth, Sidney, Melbourne, Adelaide, and
many more with the by plane-invitation. Some go around within Indonesia.
Some have their worships thundered inside the luxurious hotels with an
awesome sound system. Some have it at the Senayan stadium and spend millions
of rupiahs. This is what Jesus said; “I disapprove you for preaching
the Kingdom of God”. The Good news must be told to people who suffer
and poor, this is the intention of Jesus besides making people repent.
But it is not preached with any commercial intentions since we got it
free, so must give it to others free!
I have given her time to repent, but she refuses to repent of
Jesus already gave time to change which means advices were given before.
So I will cast her on a sickbed and plunge those who commit adultery
with her into intense suffering unless they repent of her works.
Her refers to Jezebel and adultery means the cast aspersions of faith.
But the meaning of ‘cast into a bed’ is nothing like curse
of getting AIDS or HIV and so on. The sick has nothing to do with the
symbol of bed. It means here the big tribulations; they will get into
2:23 I will also put her children to death. Thus shall all the churches
come to know that I am the searcher of hearts and minds and that
I will give each of you what your works deserve.
Her children mean those who accept her teachings and they continued it.
We see many denominations, new spitted churches; and they are countless.
Starting from one big Church scattered to hundreds of new churches. Previous
denominations that do not have anything in common anymore will create
a new community, they will gather their own followers, and they serve
there. And when the community gets big, they will have a place to worship.
Later, they will have problems in splitting the profit, one feels cheated
by the others, and then they will move again and create a different community,
on and on like that. We cannot even track how many denominations have
been created all these times. I will give great tribulation to them and
their children who are their followers. I
will also put her children to death. Thus shall all the churches come
to know that I am the searcher of hearts and minds From
outside, we might look how great their communities are, but God knows
their reins and hearts
will give each of you what your works deserve. Everyone
who did this cast aspersions.
But I say to the rest of you in Thyatira, who do not uphold
this teaching and know nothing of the so-called deep secrets
of Satan: on you I will place no further burden,
This was addressed to the rest of Thyatira Church, or any Churches with
the related situation as Thyatira, who did not follow the wrong teachings,
which were taught by the preacher and did not study anything that can
be related with Satan. (Once again without the intention of judging others,
there are many preachers and also men’s servers claim themselves
as “God’s servants” and said “I want to serve
totally, therefore I’m asking God for grant from above”.
And this grant from above is asked with force by learning the depths
of Satan. Then they start learning all kinds of teachings, so with this
teaching they could serve God’s children and they could heal people.
John, the apostle, revealed so much here. Those teachings they learn
are the depths of Satan, which they say they use to help heal and solve
people’s problems by shortcuts, instantly. That is the depths of
Satan, which comes from the power of Satan. A Grant from above is not
asked and it is impossible to learn, especially ask with force. Because
anything uses forces come from the evil, a grant from above is granted).
Jesus said, for those who did not follow the false preaching, He would
put upon them no other burden.
except that you must hold fast to what you have until I come
Hold fast what is with you; it is faith. But faith is not enough, because
anyone could say I have ‘faith’. We all have faith in God;
the One God. So God is the only One God. In Pancasila, the first verse
says God is the Divinity of The Holy One; that means Indonesian people
believe in One God. Well, if He is One, our God is the same. Therefore,
does everyone have faith in the same God? NO! Said John, the apostle.
It is not enough to just have faith, but must have faith in Jesus! That
is why do not just hold on to your faith, but hold your faith in Jesus.
In fact, just hold fast to Jesus only. Only Jesus! Hold fast to Him until
To the victor, who keeps to my ways until the end, I will give
authority over the nations.
What are God’s works? We know God’s works from the name Mother
Mary gave to us: The Community of Charity Services of the Blessed Mother.
Our assignment is the work of charity services.
He will rule them with an iron rod. Like clay vessels will
they be smashed,
just as I received authority from my Father. And to him I will
give the morning star.
an interesting verse, and we; the Community of Charity Services of
the Blessed Mother should know this verse well. To anyone who overcomes
the three days of darkness and do the works of the charity services,
He will give authorities to rule nations. What do you interpret authorities
to rule nations? It is the ability to rule nations, but we must remember
in The New Testament what Jesus said, “Other leaders, leaders
of world kingdoms are ruling with a rod of iron. But you, if you
rule, you must serve. That is the charity services. Thus, authorities
are given to us, not to rule but to serve the nations; means serve
a lot of people. He will rule them
with an iron rod don’t get the wrong meaning;
the rod of iron has a symbolic meaning. In the Book of Revelation
it means the huge power with Jesus. Jesus will rule with a rod of
iron means: He would rule with His wholly love, for His power is
just Love. As the vessels of a potter shall they be crushed, this
is those who are served by love, they will be crushed to be shaped
again. This is the same ability given by Father to Jesus while He
was serving us. And what makes us happy the most is that to
us will be given the morning star. Who is the morning star? That
is Mother Mary! The Book of Revelation talks about it and
the Hierarchy did not open their eyes when we came as The Community
of Charity Services of Blessed Mother. She Herself made this community,
named it, leads, and serves. Therefore, we received this grant from
above, the Morning star.
Whoever has ears ought to hear what the Spirit says to the
the angel of the church in Sardis, write this: " 'The
one who has the seven spirits of God and the seven stars says
He is Jesus, with the Seven God’s Spirit, which means the fulfillment
of God’s Spirit in God’s Glory, while the seven stars are
the seven Churches’ angels. Jesus, God, is the One that has everything!
know your works, that you have the reputation of being alive,
but you are dead.
My dear brother and sister, watch out for this message could be addressed
to us. Watch out as the Community of Charity Services of the Blessed
Mother whom constantly receives advices from Mother Mary to always be
humble and be gentle. One day we could stumble, and we will be arrogant
as the member of community with Mother Mary, a golden child of God community,
and a community with John, the apostle, as the special mentor, we could
slip of this arrogances that makes us preach about ourselves and say, ‘I
live because God gives me Spirit, I get tutor from John, the apostle,
and I get guidance from Mother Mary Herself’, but in real life
nothing shows, only lips service. My preaching is only lips service and
my own thoughts and not the preaching with heart, no more love preaching.
Watch out for this message is addressed to us. You live, which means
you say you live, but actually you are dead, which means you can do anything,
but actually you do not get anything from it. Watch out because that
means you will end soon.
Be watchful and strengthen what is left, which is going to
die, for I have not found your works complete in the sight
of my God.
Jesus already said, “Let you be perfect as your Father is in Heaven;
He is perfect”. That is our direction, our destination, one day
we will be like that, be perfect, so we are worthy to be called God’s
children. But Mother Mary always comforts us, “God does not require
you to be holy, God only asks you to be a good person, especially a faithful
one, no bounds of love”. That is what Mother Mary said, but our
destination is to be perfect so whatever we offer to God will be perfect
before God. Be perfect before God does not mean great or big jobs. “Big
job you accomplished but you grumbled and you completed only with your
thoughts and arrogances, it is nothing before God. A small job you did
in whole heartedness that is the perfect offer before God”. But
the warning here is for I have not found your works, even small one that
is complete in the sight of my God.
Remember then how you accepted and heard; keep it, and repent.
For each one of us, we have received “the personal touch”,
very personal. Therefore, we joined the Community of Charity Services
of the Blessed Mother; no one among us was just to follow the crowds.
We all received the personal touch and decided, “Yes”, I
want to work with Mother Mary; and “Yes”, we then joined
the Community of Charity Services of the Blessed Mother. Because we do
not have a registration form, so we come for ourselves. Before, we did
not know each other, now we could greet each other; everyone is our brother
or sister whom we did not know before, why? Each one of us has received
the personal touch. Therefore, as a remainder, remember how you received
that personal touch. Remember how you were moved then and you became
alive. I want to start a new live. But when we live with the community
and we fall down through our arrogances, we are dead. But Jesus does
not want us dead, He reminds us, ‘get up’ and make it live
again what is nearly dead. How? Look back how you were called; remember
your repentance and you said, “I now live, for God Himself came
to me and saved me”. That is the experience of us all, each one
of us. None forced us, even though I spoke for five hours, nothing could
convince you. But we all received the personal touch and God said, “I
am who I am, I am with you, you are not alone, I strengthen you”.
Then we experienced it, did not we? This is my Lord, I believe in Him
and I have a pledge to renew my life; for He Himself came to save me,
it turned out He had never left me. But later we faded, poor thing! Therefore
He has reminded us to look back how we received the personal touch from
Him the first time.
then how you accepted and heard; keep it, and repent. If you
are not watchful, I will come like a thief, and you will never
know at what hour I will come upon you.
The word ‘watch out’ is scattered around either in God’s
messages or Mother Mary’s messages to this community. Be ‘on
watch’! What does be on watch mean? It is not to stay awake and
pray until dawn; not that! Be ‘on watch’ means doing the
charity services all the time, therefore we have to be ‘on watch’.
That is the wealth we could take, if we do not have anything, the door
of Heaven will be shut for us. Our wealth is within our brethrens. Mother
Mary, explained ‘be on watch’ as doing the charity services
all times, if not, we are not part of the community of charity services.
We only carry that name and feel alive by that name, but actually we
are dead, since we do not do anything, just waiting.
However, you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled
their garments; they will walk with me dressed in white, because
they are worthy.
But there are some of you who take good care of themselves.
The victor will thus be dressed in white, and I will never
erase his name from the book of life but will acknowledge his
name in the presence of my Father and of his angels.
Here John, the apostle, prophesied the end of the world where people
come with white clothes. This is also prophesied in the Book of Revelation,
what will happen then, but it does not talk about the end of the world
itself. What happened was people were walking wearing white clothes,
washed by the blood of The Lamb. Our name will be in the Book of Life
and Jesus Himself would acknowledge our names before God, when He will
We remember the stories of the end of the world in the Synoptic Gospels,
there it is said, people came and knocked on the door, or about the story
of five wise women and five stupid women who knocked on the door, but
Jesus claimed He did not know them. But we, who overcome will be taken
by Jesus to His Father, He would acknowledge our names.
Whoever has ears ought to hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
The spirit is God’s Spirit Himself.
the angel of the church in Philadelphia, write this: " 'The
holy one, the true, who holds the key of David, who opens and
no one shall close, who closes and no one shall open, says this:
Who was He? Jesus Himself. What does it mean by having the key of David?
The key of David is the Key to Heavenly Kingdom. When He opens, no one
can shut it, what does it mean? When we open our hearts, God will open
them widely. Even when we just open our hearts a little bit, God will
open them widely and He would give us enlightenment. And no one can close,
stop, or break it. What has been told to us, what has been explained
and given enlightenment to us to understand, no one can shut it. No one
can stop this preaching, nor deny what we receive what has been revealed
to us comes from the Truth. There are many things revealed to us, which
had never been told before, for example, about Mother Mary, our Mother.
We received in messages to the community that the spirit of Mother Mary
was already there before God created the earth (Cf. Proverbs 8:22-31). “This
is not in the Holy Bible; how could you ever say that? Heresy!” This
community is overcome with heresy, preaching something not written in
the Holy Bible… John, the apostle, wrote in the Bible, “Not
all could be putting in writing, if so, no book could fit it in”.
This is only part of it. The Old Testament also wrote that prophets long
before Jesus, already prophesied the coming of Jesus and about a virgin.
Why is that? Because the spirit of Mary existed before men were created,
this was in God’s plan. God will create men and He will save them;
He Himself would save men from the womb of a virgin. This is not written
in the Bible, but we have received it. And what we have received, no
one can deny it. What has been revealed, no one can shut it. Once someone
opens his heart, no one can shut it. Do not let Satan fool us, so we
shut down our hearts by ourselves, because others cannot do it.
Once whose heart has been shut, no one can open it. This is a warning
for those who harden their hearts; it will be even harder. Those who
shut their hearts can never be opened again. This is a very serious warning.
know your works (behold, I have left an open door before you,
which no one can close). You have limited strength, and yet
you have kept my word and have not denied my name.
was our enlightenment.
knew even though Mary was pregnant she remained virgin.
A virgin is pregnant. But the Bible does not say Mary stayed
virgin after she had the baby Jesus. It did not explain
it explicitly. It is said Josef took Mary as his wife,
and he did not sleep with her until she had the baby, as
if after that there were Jesus’ brothers/sisters,
children of Josef and Mary. This is how Protestant Churches
looked at Mary. It still made her Jesus’ mother,
God’s mother. NO!! Mary is the everlasting virgin, “it
is that God dwells in the womb of Mary.” Saint Josef
who came spiritually to Agnes gave enlightenment to us,
saying: “Jesus was not born biologically”.
You all probably have not heard of Saint Josef’s
visit, three times to stress again that the spirit of Mary
had existed before the earth was created; and that Mary
remained virgin. Saint Josef also reminded us that we all
were part of God’s covenant in saving men, thus,
step in, be part of the covenant and do not just listen
or say “Yes, I believe in that covenant”, but
get involved in the covenant. As Saint Josef, he already
knew from the Old Testament that would be a Messiah. But
Saint Josef seemed to have been no body, he became the
husband of Mary, but he did not have any part of the birth
of Jesus. Saint Josef understood about the Plan of God
and got involved in that covenant; thus, he could follow
lightly without any burden. If we join this community,
step in and work. If we work, we will understand constantly.
When we joined, having participated many times but still
in doubts, cannot accept wholeheartedly after receiving
many personal touches, and still ask, “Is it true?”,
we lose out. While if we join and right away are part of
it, we will get enlightenment, we will get strengths, and
our faith will gain.
Jesus was born in Bethlehem, not biologically. As Mary lay down peacefully,
she knew it was time to give birth. The cave turned extremely bright
and the angels’ choir was heard inside the cave (Saint Josef
described the heavenly hymns as not loud but sweet, and it was comforting.)
Suddenly, Baby Jesus appeared in Mary’s lap, there was no bleeding
as in a normal process of giving birth, nothing at all. How could
it be? Jesus is God and He came and stayed inside Mary’s womb,
the Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the Most High
will cover you with its shadow………… God’s
Spirit worked. Mary was conceived by the Holy Spirit, this is as
a human term, but Saint Josef said, “Mary was not pregnant,
but God stayed in her womb”. This is the more proper
phrase given to this community. There is no enlightenment like this
in the Bible. Now we know who Mother Mary is. What is her role, and
what is her role fulfillment. Mother Mary is truly a Co-redemptory.
have limited strength, and yet you have kept my word and have
not denied my name.
This is comforting for us, the Community of Charity Services of the Blessed
Mother. Our strength is nothing, and is not comparable with that of any
other communities that have many great facilities. Who are we? However,
yet you have kept my word,
obeyed God’s messages and have
not denied my name.
Behold, I will make those of the assembly of Satan who claim
to be Jews and are not, but are lying
The synagogue of satan, who are they? They are the ones who surrender
under satan’s authority, they are united with satan; they might
not have known Jesus yet, but also those who left Jesus. Many of our
brothers/sisters are brought to us. They came from that group and received
the wrong teachings; God’s children were followers of that group
and practiced those spiritualistic things. They used those things as
charm or inner power, put inside their body by the teacher.
I will make them come and fall prostrate at your feet, and
they will realize that I love you.
During our services throughout our country, we have experienced much
repentance with great joy; God’s children return to Jesus wholly.
Our children are called and picked up by God; if God had not come to
pick them up, he would not have come to Him himself. God picked him up.
This is why God is using this ‘way’; “I came to pick
up My children for they are not able to return to Me by themselves.” God
does more as compared with the parable of the prodigal son. Here, He
came to pick up His children. (They are the youths of Semarang Archdiocese
who repented and called to live a religious life).
Because you have kept my message of endurance, I will keep
you safe in the time of trial that is going to come to the
whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth.
This is the verse for the Community of Charity Services of the Blessed
Mother, which confirmed our preaching. This is the three days of darkness.
Therefore, when people ask us, what the three days of darkness is as
we preach to our brethrens, it is the day of temptation to attempt those
who live on earth. The day of temptation to purify them, will decide
whether or not they are pure. Will they overcome or will they not? Please
look at the Book of Revelation chapter 3 verse 10, it has been prophesied
by John, the apostle.
I am coming quickly. Hold fast to what you have, so that no
one may take your crown.
Hold on only to Jesus and the meaning of the crown is the eternal life.
The victor I will make into a pillar in the temple of my God,
and he will never leave it again.
I will make them a pillar in the temple of My God. The temple of God
is God’s home, where God’s children live, where the Kingdom
of God is built. I will make a pillar of them who overcome. If we overcome,
we will still have the tasks to gather those who are saved on that temptation
day (as Mother Mary’s messages). Therefore, after the three days
of darkness, we who were prepared, will overcome; but there will be people
who suffer and repent, and because they repent; they will be saved as
well. Then, we will gather them; we will be sent to pick them up anywhere
since we are pillars, he will never
leave it again, we are already inside the temple
as pillars, we will go no more out. On

Thus, the second part of chapter 3 fits for the Community of Charity
Services of the Blessed Mother.
To the angel of the church in Laodicea, write this: The Amen,
the faithful and true witness, the source of God's creation,
He is Jesus. It is said He is the beginning of God’s creation,
but it does not mean Jesus was God’s creation; He was witness from
the very beginning when God started His creation. “At the beginning
was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. All things
were made by Him; and without Him was not anything made that was made.” (John
I know your works; I know that you are neither cold nor hot.
I wish you were either cold or hot.
3:16 So, because you are lukewarm, neither hot nor cold, I will spit
you out of my mouth.
as this could be addressed to us. Who is neither cold nor hot? They
who are always in doubt. Even though they participate and are diligent,
claim they are faithful but they are in doubts, why? Because, they
never do anything at all. They only came to receive, they will never
give, to be served but they never want to serve. Yes, because they
are in doubt. When you believe, you ought to serve, you will be brave,
will go forward, will be brave to convey. You are convinced to serve
but if you are neither hot nor cold I
will spit you out of my mouth. What does it
mean? You will no longer be used and you will be thrown out.
For you say, 'I am rich and affluent and have no need of anything,'
and yet do not realize that you are wretched, pitiable, poor,
blind, and naked.
I advise you to buy from me gold refined by fire
I am rich,
I have enough, and I know everything; that is enough! I do not need
anything more! I am rich and increased in goods. I will choose for
myself what I want. I want to get involved but I will filter. This
is he who does not want to be guided by God. God said test anything
and keep the good ones. Test it! Do not choose what you want, only
the good parts that you want. I am rich, and increased in goods,
I do not need anything. It is a pity because this is actually a sign
that you are in doubt and when you are in doubt, you are not neither
cold nor hot. Remember you will be spit out of God’s mouth. and
yet do not realize that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind,
and naked, I advise you to buy from me gold refined by fire
Here we are reminded of those in doubt who feel that they have enough,
but they are actually poor, do not have anything. Once again your wealth
is actually what have you given to other brethrens. Charity services
are your wealth. Your wealth lies within your brethrens. It is not what
we gather, but your wealth lies within your brethrens. When you do not
realize this, you actually do not know how miserable, poor, blind, and
naked you are. It is shameful to claim yourself as God’s children. I
advise you to buy from me gold refined by fire,
which means for you to take, accept from Jesus, ask from Jesus His True
teachings; His genuine teachings. What is True, Pure, just like gold
tried in the fire?
So that you may be rich,
for you to know truly or what you need to believe and do and
white garments to put on so that your shameful nakedness. So
that you will not be seen that you actually know nothing may
not be exposed, and buy ointment to smear on your eyes so that
you may see, and walk no longer in darkness.
Those whom I love, I reprove and chastise.
This is a truly comfort from Jesus. We have heard messages from Lord
Jesus to the seven churches and this is the church of Laodiceans. How
hard God is; so what can we do? Anything we do, does it count before
God? It is small what we do. God said as many I love, I rebuke and chasten,
really hard when He chastens us, Be
earnest, therefore, and repent.
Be zealous! Surrender! This is why Mother Mary taught us the Abandonment
prayer. Entrust to God to be rebuked and chastened and repent. For this
verse 19, it is said to us that we are loved by God, for that we would
suffer as we are purified. And by being zealous and entrusted to God,
we could feel how this suffering is a tool for us to be pure.
Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice
and opens the door, (then) I will enter his house and dine
with him, and he with me.
Several times Mrs. Agnes got this message from God: “Agnes, to
tell the truth, I stand before the door of my Children’s heart
and I knock it, but the door has never been opened, the door is shut,
and I cannot do anything for them. Every time I knock the door, it is
always shut.” Meanwhile, Mother Mary said: “Open your heart
a little bit only, if you open it just a little bit, the power
of God will go and open it widely.” “I
will enter his house and dine with him, and he with me” When
we are on e in God, we will not have deficiency in anything, we should
not be afraid of anything. But God can not open the door from outside
(it is described by the painting of Jesus knocks at the door without
the door knob/handle outside). Once again Jesus will never batter down
the door, Jesus knocks the door, and Jesus is tender loving God. Who
likes to force and hit here and there is Satan.
“ I will enter and find
him, I will eat with him and he will eat together with Me”. Jesus
constantly offers His fully involvement, so that we are wholly
united in Him. By uniting with Him, we could bear fruit, be diligent,
and holding out in allegiance.
I will give the victor the right to sit with me on my throne,
as I myself first won the victory and sit with my Father on
Reign together with Jesus who is God. Again here we see as if Jesus is
one person and God is another. There is one sits at the right hand of
the Father. Right side means the best place. Sitting together with the
Father, even though Father and I are one. Jesus Himself said that, here
again Jesus person because we know Him, thus it is always repeated.
Whoever has ears ought to hear what the Spirit says to the
This is the first three chapters of Revelation Book, which is good for
our guide as the Community of Charity Services of the Blessed Mother.
This is the real situation now and we are being reminded. If you go deeper
in it, you will see how the community of charity services by the Blessed
Mother is the Prophecy fulfillment from the Revelation Book. We
may testify about it. That is true! It’s time now! (Mother Mary
Message September 2003). Why did not John, the apostle reveal the Revelation
book since 1995? Because the time is getting near, that is why it is
revealed now; we get deeper and broader enlightenment about it.
A great sign appeared in the sky, a woman clothed with the
sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown
of twelve stars.
(It is suggested that Mother Mary’s children of Community of Charity
Services of the Blessed Mother, to know Revelation chapter 12 well).
The prophecy to John was about a woman who appeared as a great sign in
heaven. This prophecy to John has been explained many times by Mother
Mary, not only to the Community of Charity Services of the Blessed Mother,
but also in many of Her apparitions with many messages throughout the
world (since her last Fatima apparitions in October 13, 1917).

crescent moon under her feet that is the painting of Mary in the

if you see the picture, Mary was clothed with the sun. Mary already

by stressing that the One we should worship is not thirst of blood,
but is God whom wanted to give His blood to redeem men’s
sins. God is Jesus, Mary’s child)
not talk about the apparition in other places, but let us talk about
what we received from Mother Mary in Community of Charity Services
by the Blessed Mother. Everywhere throughout our country, Mary has
given her love sign, which is miracle of the sun.
has been repeatedly given as love sign, comfort, and confirmation.
It is not for that sign, one believes, but because we believe, we
could see the sign. So, believe first then will get to see the sign.
Don’t be in doubt for those have not seen the sign, soon you
will get the grant from above. You will get the love from Mother
Mary. Those, whom could see, please not to forget to pray for your
messages, Mother Mary said “.. Unto you have given the sign.
This is the sign has been prophesied by John in Revelation.” That
is why we are so closed with John, the apostle, because he is the
one talked about that sign. John, the apostle knew the secret well,
was told by Mother Mary and Lord Jesus; the understandings were given
by Mother Mary. And John, the apostle guides us.
words, the stamp of Community of Charity Services of the Blessed
Mother has been plenty if the hierarchy wanted to open its eyes.
But one must believe first before getting the understandings, not
understand first then believe. “What you do not understand,
reflects them, and brings them into your prayer. Do not judge when
you do not understand. But when you believe, you will get enlightenment.” (Mother
Mary’s messages repeated).
there appeared the great wonder in heaven, since when?
We do not know! Also, when the purification comes; Does a big sign
in the sky precede it before? We do not know. The community of
charity services did not receive that prophecy, but a great wonder
in the sky and everyone could see it, not only the sun, but Mother
Mary also. That was what happened in Sendangsono on March 24, 1995;
thousands of people saw the miracle of sun. This was when the community
was not formed yet, Mother Mary already gave the sign, where thousands
of people gathered in Sendang sono on March 24 1995 (I have heard
tens people gave their testimony of miracle of the sun given at
3 Pm until sunset). But what given to Mrs. Agnes, not only the
miracle of sun, but Mother Mary Herself was present for Mrs. Agnes
was chosen and prepared to work together with Mother Mary, together
with the community of charity services by the Blessed Mother to
convey Heavenly messages.
She was with child and wailed aloud in pain as she labored
to give birth.
Who was that pregnant and giving birth? That was Mary. But, what was
told to the community Mary did not feel pain at giving birth. Isn’t
it a controversy? No it is not! But why is that? What it means by she
was crying, travailing in birth, and pained was the crying of her heart.
Her pain started ever since she was pregnant of Jesus. She knew Jesus;
her Child was going to suffer. How did she know? Wasn’t she untold
then? Mary was a Bible/torah’s lover; She knew all the prophets’ prophecy
about the messiah.
And she knew her Child was the world redemptory; she knew for Gabriel
angel had told her the Good news. Gabriel had told her all those great
things; He would be King, David’s throne would be granted to Him,
all great things.
knew besides those great things would be given to Him, He would suffer
as well; as He was God’s servant and must suffer. He would
be cast; people avoid Him as He had leprosy with the damaged face.
Mary knew all that. Therefore, ever since she was pregnant, her heart
cried, as she knew her son would suffer. And the same with us, her
heart also cries for us, her children received from Lord Jesus.
in pain to see her children, all of us, whom were born from the Church’s
womb, for Mary is a Mother of Church. She is in pain to see us suffer;
that is why the blessed Mother in heaven with God’s approval,
came to bring us back wholly to God. This is what it meant: the woman
cried in pain, not because she was giving birth in pain, because
she gave birth to Jesus not with pain but joyfully.
Then another sign appeared in the sky; it was a huge red dragon,
with seven heads and ten horns, and on its heads were seven
The description: number of seven is the perfect number when describing
mighty power of the dragon.
Its tail swept away a third of the stars in the sky and hurled
them down to the earth.
Again the symbol of star, secret of stars is the angels. He swept one
third of God’s angels whom were casted off the earth for they were
Then the dragon stood before
the woman about to give birth, to devour her child when she gave
birth. Soon after Jesus was born already threatened
to get killed as per Herodian’s command.
She gave birth to a son, a male child, destined to rule all
the nations with an iron rod.
Once again the rod of iron is not violence but almighty power, which
is Jesus’ love. Her child was
caught up to God and his throne. The words: was
caught up here, does not mean Mary lost Jesus just like that, but describing
similar to what actually happened. Mary soon lost her Child; even it
started when Jesus was lost in Synagogue at the age of 12. She lost Jesus
then and after Josef passed away, Jesus made His public appearance, and
it can be said Mary was left alone. (Even though she might have participated
in His works because many times Mary was involved in Jesus preached,
traveling all Israel areas).
The Child was caught up which means the child went teaching and doing
works, then later suffered and died in a humiliating way. The child was
caught up from her, and was taken to God and His throne, and finally
her Son was ascended to heaven.
The woman herself fled into the desert where she had a place
prepared by God, that there she might be taken care of for
twelve hundred and sixty days.
The number in Revelation cannot be interpreted literally. The woman fled
into the wilderness, means the woman is hiding temporarily, we could
say it also she is in silence for a while. But since 10 to 20 century
and now 21 century, these are Mary’s centuries. Mary has stepped
out of her hiding place. But before then, Mary had already worked. Since
the first century Mary made an appearance to Jacob disciple in Spain
(the Lady of the Pillar), where Mary appeared to Jacob disciple on pillars
at a church.
That was the first Mary’s apparition first written in first century.
So that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and sixty days.
What was it for? When the time comes, she would come and start having
a war with the dragon and the dragon would be defeated!
Then war broke out in heaven;
John, the apostle again told the first situation when Michael the Angel
fought against Lucifer. Thus, the Revelation Book told what happened
then. Michael and his angels battled
against the dragon. The dragon and its angels fought back,
but they did not prevail and there was no longer any place
for them in heaven.
The huge dragon, the ancient serpent, who is called the Devil
and Satan, who deceived the whole world,
So, please Remember: the Revelation book always reminds us that the dragon/Satan/devil
deceives the whole world. Was thrown
down to earth, and its angels were thrown down with it.
There, he will be the ruler of this world. John, the apostle jumped again
in victory hymn:
Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: "Now have salvation
and power come, and the kingdom of our God and the authority
of his Anointed. For the accuser of our brothers is cast out,
who accuses them before our God day and night.
This moment is coming soon, when the three days of darkness comes upon
the earth. Who is our accuser? Satan and his followers with all their
cunnings is our accuser; they trick us. When we are tricked, they would
come to God and accuse us, they are our followers; he is like this, like
that, and so on. That is the characteristics of Satan. That is their
job; they are sly to trap us, but who will come to defend us? He is Jesus;
He would come, (and said, nevertheless, I know he tried to confess his
sins at the confession room every time he sinned; this is a sign of being
faithful, even later he would sin again).
They conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word
of their testimony;
Who are they overcame him by the blood of the lamb? We are; we overcame
Satan with our testimony because we dare to tell the Truth. Love
for life did not deter them from death. They are the martyrs.
Therefore, rejoice, you heavens, and you who dwell in them.
But woe to you, earth and sea, for the Devil has come down
to you in great fury, for he knows he has but a short time."
Those who believe and are being reminded, “Time is near”.
When the dragon saw that it had been thrown down to the earth;
it pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child.
Then Satan started to chase Mary. This is told with the story of Mary
and Josef took Jesus to evacuate to Egypt, and constantly moved from
place to place because Herodian worked together with the Romans. Therefore
wherever the Romans’ authority is, Herodian could team up the Romans
But the woman was given the two wings of the great eagle, so
that she could fly to her place in the desert, where, far from
the serpent, she was taken care of for a year, two years, and
This was telling about Mary’s struggle, in many events, where Satan
many times would turn down Mary’s work, but she has always won.
We could see Mary’s victory as Pope Pius V included October 7 as “Mary,
Queen of Rosary”. This was the great Mary’s victory, it was
one of those was written.
And Pope John Paul II invited us to declare on October 2002 as “Rosary
year”. The year of praying so we overcome also.
The serpent, however, spewed a torrent of water out of his
mouth after the woman to sweep her away with the current.
This is also one of Satan’s works to fail Mary’s works.
But the earth helped the woman and opened its mouth and swallowed
the flood that the dragon spewed out of its mouth.
Again Mary won; Mary always wins since God is with her.
Then the dragon became angry with the woman and went off to
wage war against the rest of her offspring, those who keep
God's commandments and bear witness to Jesus.
Who are they? It is we, all Mary’s children. Thus, it is said who
suffer the most by Satan’s tricks? It is God’s children,
especially Mary’s children. Why is it? Because Satan knows that
with Mary we should win (and we ask: how come bad people live nicely?
Have good wealth, why is he successful, or look successful? How come
people that pray diligently, try to get closer to God suffer? Come closer
to God so things would be better. What is it better? Prices are high?
Then we will demonstrate. Those who demonstrate must not be God’s
children; those who get angry must not be God’s children).
That is how Satan gets God’s children with his tricks to complain,
to get angry, to rebel, to protest, and not to take the suffering as
something beautiful. Satan will always fool God’s children, so
he went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which is we, Mary’s
spiritual children who obey God’s commandments and have Jesus’ testimony.
Here we are praised for obeying God’s commandments; we have testimony
of Jesus, and say we are willing to suffer until our deaths for we would
grant the crown of everlasting live.
It took its position on the sand of the sea.
And is waiting for the right moment. Don’t be fooled by his tricks
when we meet him. Get ourselves closer to God and He would save us.
