Commemorating The First Day The Gospel Was Proclaimed

SJP Fasting Reminder Header

"In prayer you shall perceive ... the way out of every situation that has no exit." 
Medjugorje March 28, 1985

"Do novenas of fasting and renunciation so that satan be far from you and grace be around you"                                                                                                             -  Medjugorje July 25, 2005


Today is Friday, our core fasting day.


Today however, is also one of the great feasts in church history – commemorating the first moment the savior was recognized, the first occasion when the gospel was proclaimed.


Mary’s voice in this process is an interesting consideration isn’t it? Her voice, what the famous Harvard Business School professor said was so special when he heard it, that Mary’s voice even eclipsed her beauty and eclipsed the majesty the professor saw with the angels surrounding her.


Consider just as God spoke and it was His voice and word that created the universe from nothing. Then it was Mary’s spoken words, “Be it done unto me, according to Your will” that were the “go” signal in all of heaven that caused Jesus to leap from his throne over the universe and take up shelter as an embryo in her womb.


Once again it was Mary’s voice that hearkened in the first proclamation of the gospel. as we see in scripture’s words studied across the world this day in Luke 1:44:


behold, when the voice of your greeting came to my ears, the babe in my womb leaped for joy.


Because of this great feast, we think the joy of the occasion in heaven supersedes the obligation to fast, and we are going to celebrate by only fasting for two meals today and celebrate savoring one full meal. Normally a feast would suggest having meals throughout the day and many of you may choose to celebrate in such a manner which is very justifiable.


However, we are of the mindset that we are now at war.


And war requires a different level of sacrifice for both survival and victory.


Specifically, we believe war has been declared on America although our politicians have been bribed to suppress awareness of this attack rather than sounding the alarm and calling our nation to its defenses.


satan’s declaration of war on America has been concurrent with his declaration of war on the church. satan’s strategy has been brilliant, all encompassing, and remarkably successful. Both institutions, America and the church, are reeling from the assault that has blitzkrieged all areas of existence. But don’t despair as both will be restored to glory.


The price of victory in World War II was the sacrifice of Normandy and similar sacrifices by our patriots on all of the battlefields they fought. The generations before us gave everything for our freedom and faith.


And so we encourage you to recognize this state of battle that we are in and although we celebrate today, decide to join us in extended fasting.


Below is a link to an interview we recorded in April speaking to these wars on the church and America in more detail. We were not able to delve into all of the details as to what American and church leadership are doing in this war against patriots and believers, but we hope it is informative.  Most notably Heaven shows us the prescription for protection in this war – ongoing novenas of fasting and concurrent novenas of reparation that will keep evil at bay like an intimidating army would do for its citizens. What a fabulous insight.


We do mention the importance for families to allocate to physical gold and silver. If you desire to have your family protected from the debt crisis that is unfolding, history suggests you want an appropriate allocation to gold and silver. The precious metals carry no guarantees, but if you look back in history, throughout the centuries gold and silver would have protected families in the past, so the chances are that metals will continue to do so.   Be sure you understand financial history if you are charged with safeguarding family’s wealth. Don’t take a so-called expert’s opinion as to what is an ideal allocation to gold – have them show you the math behind their assertions on how the components of your portfolio fit together. Math and the history of finance lead investors to gold.


So today, while being aware of the war around us, offering our small sacrifice with a partial day’s fast like David did on occasion in Scriptures, we celebrate this great feast and ask the Holy Spirit to fill us like he did Elizabeth that we may understand and see truth.


Enjoy this summer weekend. God bless. 


War Has Been Declared on America & The Mold for $50,000 Gold Is Set

LUKE 1:39-56

39In those days Mary arose and went with haste into the hill country, to a city of Judah, 40and she entered the house of Zechari'ah and greeted Elizabeth. 41And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit 42and she exclaimed with a loud cry, "Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! 43And why is this granted me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44For behold, when the voice of your greeting came to my ears, the babe in my womb leaped for joy. 45And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfilment of what was spoken to her from the Lord." 46And Mary said, "My soul magnifies the Lord, 47and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, 48for he has regarded the low estate of his handmaiden. For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed; 49for he who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is his name. 50And his mercy is on those who fear him from generation to generation. 51He has shown strength with his arm, he has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts, 52he has put down the mighty from their thrones, and exalted those of low degree; 53he has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he has sent empty away. 54He has helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy, 55as he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his posterity forever." 56And Mary remained with her about three months and returned to her home.

Why We Fast – Our Core Fasting Intentions

1) We add the new fasting intention of taking back the church from evil. We submit the three-step process to achieve this victory is 1-Repent, 2-Prayer & Fasting and, 3-Imitate our Savior by throwing the evil leadership from the church. We will seek to emulate the Savior in our effort to End the USCCB, an organization that has been devastating to the church.  (“You shall know the spirit by the fruits” - Matt. 7:16)

2) For the Holy Spirit to reign down upon America, renewing our land as the Christian, capitalist meritocracy we were founded to be.

3) For the protection of our police, firefighters, military and their families from harm and that the Lord bless their courageous generosity on our behalf.

4) For the protection of the families who fast with us, and for God’s blessings of abundance upon them and that true to His word, we will be able to witness that He prospered us in famine.

Would you like to learn more about fasting?

We maintain a repository of ideas and information we have learned over the last decade while fasting weekly for America. From scientific studies on the benefits of fasting, to the differences between intermittent dieting vs intermittent fasting, to scriptural references regarding the power of fasting to the history of first century Christians who stated believers are obligated to fast weekly, we hope you will find numerous insights with our free resource located here.

Together let us also implore Heaven while fasting for intentions you have highlighted:

4) For all patriots who put themselves on the front lines in combatting evil and for all of the warriors who are stepping up around the nation to fight for the gospel – May The Father cover them in the blood of our savior,  protect them and their families from evil and bring victory to their endeavors.

5) For priests, ministers and all who aspire to lead others to the Lord, that the Holy Spirit will reign down upon them as at Pentecost filling them to overflowing. 

6) For the Americans jailed after January 6th who were admitted to the Capitol building by the police, and who were not found to have destroyed any property at the capitol yet who have been held captive ever since on our own soil - That God's Spirit will move quickly to bring justice back to this land and free them.
