MEDJUGORJE: THE MESSAGE PSALM 22


                             MEDJUGORJE THE MESSAGE: The Lord is NOT my SHEPHERD?
                                                                        
                                                                                     

                                                                   PSALM 22 (23 KJV)
                                                                         
                                 Dominus regit me. God's spiritual benefits to faithful souls.

[1] A psalm for David. The Lord ruleth me: and I shall want nothing. [2] He hath set me in a place of pasture. He hath brought me up, on the water of refreshment: [3] He hath converted my soul. He hath led me on the paths of justice, for his own name' s sake. [4] For though I should walk in the midst of the shadow of death, I will fear no evils, for thou art with me. Thy rod and thy staff, they have comforted me. [5] Thou hast prepared a table before me against them that afflict me. Thou hast anointed my head with oil; and my chalice which inebriateth me, how goodly is it!

[1] Ruleth me: In Hebrew, Is my shepherd, viz., to feed, guide, and govern me.

[6] And thy mercy will follow me all the days of my life. And that I may dwell in the house of the Lord unto length of days
                                                             



                                                                 
 .....now at MEDJUGORJE we see the Lord has not left us with a Shepherd...it follows we are in want..in want of justice in want of unity in want of truth...since we are told by the advocates of the visions that the local ordinary is not competent...so the sheep are scattered so to speak...if one is to wait for a ruling from the Vatican then in the meantime we see that Jesus has left us orphans to fend for ourselves...now this implies that God who is omniscient has erred in judgement....it means that this local ordinary in good standing has some defect which makes him delinquent of reason or wisdom or discernment....we are told that the Vatican itself has made a mistake...through the appointment of two successive bishops...indeed the holy spirit has picked the wrong person to be bishop of Mostar....the spirit has erred twice...so by association the holy spirit is incompetent..since it is the holy spirit who speaks through the office of bishop who is not promoting sin...
                                                             



                                                   

“The Paraclete, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, will teach you everything, and remind you of all that I have said to you …

“When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own, but will speak whatever He hears, and He will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, because He will take what is mine and declare it to you.” (John 14 and 16).

Since that first Pentecost, the Spirit has been with the Church of Jesus in many ways, but one of the most concrete ways in which we see the Holy Spirit at work is through the ministry of bishops.

Bishops are successors of the Apostles, upon whom the Spirit first fell like tongues of flame. Their task, indeed my task, is to do something of that which Jesus said the Spirit would do in His Church: to live with and among God’s people, to teach them everything that Jesus taught, and to lead them into all truth”.....

                                                        ...now God has also set those people who abide by his shepherds into a place of pasture which is within the sheepfold( the Church)...either we are in this church spiritually and substantially conjoined to the bosom of the church through the sacraments under supervision of the bishops themselves....or we are only in this church in a physical sense..whereby we show up and talk the talk but do not walk the walk... we do not live in love since we do not respect rightfully appointed heirs to the apostles....we do not aspire for justice since we are guiding our brothers and sisters by our own reason and not through the church...indeed we open ourselves to the possibility of falling into a pit...

...the rod and the staff of God are his justice and his word..and this staff also alludes to the staff of the bishop or his crozier (Pastoral Staff)...so we see we can have no comfort without the staff of the bishop..this symbolizes justice and the allegiance to every word of God as it proceeds from his mouth (intellect) through the bible and customs edicts and traditions of the church....

..to say as i have heard that the Vatican supersedes the local bishop is nonsense since we are then still left without a decision..in the mean time we are unprotected from error....we are left to ourselves to decide..indeed this is not the catholic church..it is Unitarianism..a heresy
                                                                               
                                                                         

..indeed God is naturally present to every created thing in every way irregardless of location..God is also gracefully present in accordance to a person’s interior disposition...God is also attentively present to those who call on him by order of his will...Supremely God is present in the order of his Son (Jesus)..and finally God is mystically present through his universal church which guards the earth from the gates of hell...and so we see that in MEDJUGORJE God is not actively present or mystically present through his church and his heir the local bishop of Mostar who is indeed incompetent as we are told by the advocates of MEDJUGORJE....in MEDJUGORJE we are not guarded from the gates of hell because we are not sure according to the advocates of MEDJUGORJE as to what the church’s stance is...indeed by them we are told the church has sanctioned pilgrimages and no decision has been made however this is a case of the church contradicting itself through a magisterial miscommunication....

...the table God has prepared is the banquet feast of the mystical wedding in heaven which occurs after death and at the final judgement when the church is finally wed to her mystical groom ..this is achieved through obedience to the grooms wishes......the table can also be considered to be the last supper table where Jesus sat and ate with his disciples the first apostles..and so the table prepared for us in a spiritual sense is one in which we are partakers of the spirit of the succession of the apostles..at this table we will be provided with the food of the spirit which will protect us from those who want to afflict us  (sins and temptations) ...on the contrary at MEDJUGORJE our table will be overturned since Jesus will use our sins as our chastisement against us...

....  in MEDJUGORJE we see the table prepared as described in scripture...
 
                                                                      

14 In the temple precincts he came upon merchants selling oxen, sheep and doves, and moneychangers seated at tables. 15 And when he had made a kind of whip from cords, he drove everyone, including sheep and oxen, out of the temple, swept away the gold of the money changers, and knocked over their tables. 16 To those selling doves he said, “Get Out of here! And stop making my Father’s house into a marketplace.” 17 His disciples then remembered that it is written: “Zeal for your house consumes me.”....John 2:14-17
 

Thomas Aquinas tells us in his commentary of the Gospel of St. John...

383 This can be understood mystically in three ways. First of all, the merchants signify those who sell or buy the things of the Church: for the oxen, sheep and doves signify the spiritual goods of the Church and the things connected with them. These goods have been consecrated and authenticated by the teachings of the apostles and doctors, signified by the oxen: “When there is an abundant harvest the strength of the ox is evident” (Prv 14:4); and by the blood of the martyrs, who are signified by the sheep: so it is said for them: “We are regarded as sheep for the slaughter” (Rom 8:36): and by the gifts of the Holy Spirit, signified by the doves, for as stated above, the Holy Spirit appeared in the form of a dove. Therefore, those who presume to sell the spiritual goods of the Church and the goods connected with them are selling the teachings of the apostles, the blood of the martyrs, and the gifts of the Holy Spirit”….and he continues…

“He drives the men out with a whip; and this is what he says, when he had made a kind of whip from cords. This is something that could be done only by divine power. For as Origen says, the divine power of Jesus was as able, when he willed, to quench the swelling anger of men as to still the storms of minds: “The Lord brings to nought the thoughts of men” (Ps 32:10). He makes the whip from cords because, as Augustine says, it is from our own sins that he forms the matter with which he punishes us: for a series of sins, in which sins are added to sins, is called a cord: “He is bound fast by the cords of his own sins” (Prv 5:22); “Woe to you who haul wickedness with cords” (Is 5:18). Then, just as he drove the merchants from the temple, so he swept away the gold of the moneychangers and knocked over their tables”

..Jesus will come upon the merchants or in this case the SEERS of MEDJUGORJE and overturn their table and banish them(the edict of the Bishop of Mostar) ...these SEERSwho are selling oxen(obedience) the ox is an obedient animal, sheep (the faithful and the meek) to which the seers of MEDJUGORJE are trying to mislead, and doves (the symbol of peace and the holy spirit) by saying the SEERS themselves are over the authority of the local ordinary who we are told is incompetent????....the SEERS usurp the church and are a new vessel of the Holy Spirit....indeed this is interesting..we are told the Paraclete dwells substantially inside the church and works through its organs we as christians are moved by its fruits...since the SEERS have become  a new authority we see something novel happening.... because of this usurping of the HOLY SPIRIT...we see sins which are directly against the HOLY SPIRIT....PRESUMPTION, OBSTINANCY, RESISTING THE KNOWN TRUTH, ENVY OF AUTHORITY  OR ANOTHER'S SPIRITUAL WELFARE(the local bishop)....

....the  chalice which inebriates can be understood in a physical way as the chalice of the mass..or it is the cup of obedience as Jesus in his passion mentioned..Lord please take this cup from me...however in MEDJUGORJE we have no cup of obedience..and so we have no inebriation with virtue...the reason is not inebriated with faith in the creeds and traditions of the true church...the reason is instead inebriated by its own fantasy since advocates are not following rightful authority...the cup is empty of the spirit of unity and filled with the beautiful poison of inordinate self-love in dereliction of the duty to act from due diligence and  prudence....
                                                                    

 
..indeed much more can be said..let us all examine ourselves through a recollected spirit so that we do not become overzealous and lose scope of our neighbour but ending up in the snare of pandering to our self-serving needs and wants.....amen
