It is Satan, not Jesus, who presently rules the world. One simply has to look around at all the sin and apostacy in the world to see that this is true. The Book of Revelations clearly states that Jesus, and His Angels, conquer and dethrone our present world's ruler, who is Satan, at our future battle of Armageddon. The twelve stars, which adorn Mary in her apparitions, represent Jesus' Twelve Apostles. Catholic clergy are Christ's Twelve Apostles on earth. In scriptures, Jesus clearly tells us that, in His Kingdom, He will Rule the world, with, and through, His Apostles. Jesus will conquer the world, at the Battle of Armageddon, with and through His great Combat Angels of the Apocalypse, who are Christ's Apostles on earth, who are Catholic Clergy.
With Jesus, a descendant of king David, Ruling the world, Israel is restored and Zion is born. Under Messianic Reign, Zion is Jesus' Holy City. Zion is where Jesus' subjects live. Outside the gates of Zion is where the spiritually dead, defeated subjects of Satan, physically live. In Jesus' Kingdom Come, which is Zion under Christ's Rule, God's Will, will be done. Let Jesus Rule! Let God's Kingdom Come! Praise be to God's Son, Jesus Christ, our coming King! Halelujah!
With Jesus, a descendant of King David, taking up His throne over the world at Armageddon, Israel is restored. The Messianic Reign globe with the cross on top is quite a bit smaller than the larger globe with Satan, depicted as a serpent, on top of it. In Christ's Kingdom of Zion, which is to come, God's will is done. The prideful non-repentant who choose Satan's will, which Satan's will is man's evil pride on earth, are chained in hell by Apocalyptic Angels. Only a remnant of Israel return to Zion when God restores the Kingdom to Israel, upon Messianic Reign at Armageddon. The rest are put under Jesus feet, by the Father, through the help of His army of warrior angels. Christ's Kingdom of Zion is no doubt going to be smaller than our present world ruled by Satan. However, when Satan's followers see our 'Light to the Nations', who is our King Jesus Christ, coming in His glory and shining bright atop mount Zion, many repent, seek absolution of their sins, and pass through the gates of Zion to be with Jesus. Jesus brings His brothers and sisters of Israel, and the world, home to God our Father, upon the restoration of Israel. God has promised that He will do this and this is what He will do.
I, Steven Merten, author of www.ILOVEYOUGOD.com have been working on my, "I Love You, God", for forty five years. I have devoted my life to her. I have spent well over one hundred thousand hours, in deep prayer, contemplation and scriptural study, seeking out God's will and placing what I have found into my 'I Love You, God'. In 1986, I painted, with the help of my cousin, Faye (Merten) Lubniewski, the globe-cross cover of my 'I Love You, God'. My painting, since its inception in my heart, has been a picture of the Kingdom of God. Love for God is the Kingdom of God. Love for God is accomplished, on earth, through human free-willed obedience to God's Will. My painting is a picture of the earth, with a cross on top of it, generating a bountiful harvest of love for God, as depicted in Christ's 'Kingdom parables'. My globe with a cross on top, generating a bountiful harvest of love for God, has always been www.ILOVEYOUGOD.com's icon and calling card; The painting is what identifies her.
Just lately, in December of 2011, I was reading a book on the blessed Mother of Fatima. There it was, my, or shall I say, what I thought was my, 'I Love You, God' adorning the Blessed Mother's necklace. I now see that it is not my globe-cross in the Blessed Mother's hands, but Her globe-cross which has sprung forth from my heart. I humbly subject myself to the service of the Blessed Mother, Jesus, and God our Father. From day one, I have always realized that www.ILOVEYOUGOD.com was far greater than I, or any man, could have conceived without God's help. I have always treated my 'I Love You, God' as if she were one of my cherished children, conceived from God. Read www.ILOVEYOUGOD.com and tell me if you think she is a creation of man or a gift from God, delivered at the hands of the Blessed Mother Mary. I am not trying to be pompous, but only humbly honest.
Though I, author of 'I Love You, God' have felt the hand of the Holy Spirit guiding me, as a great number of other Christians have also felt, I have never had any visions or voices from heaven talking to me. I have no proof or signed statement from God that my 'I Love You, God' is a gift, from God to mankind, conceived on earth, through me. This is something the Church, and the people of the world, must decipher on their own. I only humbly decipher scriptures, and apparitions from Mary, and report what I see in the globe-cross which Mary holds in her modern day apparitions.
I only work to decipher scriptures, and now, from 2006 on, Mary's apparitions. I do not present any new scriptures or messages from Mary. The bible, and what is given to us by the seers of Mary's apparitions, are the boarders of what I use to decipher God's will. I only decipher. The conclusions 'I Love You, God' readers make must always be based on the scriptures 'I Love You, God' presents, and never based on what author Steven Merten says. I only decipher scriptures. I do not write scriptures.
From Pope Benedict's latest comments, on his latest trip to Fatima, I think he is presently aligning Christ's troops, who are Catholic Clergy, for battle with Satan at Armageddon. According to the Book of Revelation, Messianic Enthronement happens at the very moment, which Christ's troops who are Apostolic Successors, use their Christ given power of the 'Keys to the Kingdom' to put Christ's law into enforcement over the whole world. I think it is Pope Benedict’s intention to soon take us into the Promised Land Two of Zion, through the enthronement of Jesus as King and Ruler of the world. 'I Love You, God' has, deciphered from scriptures, the path to Zion and Messianic Reign. I believe Pope Benedict XVI has read www.ILOVEYOUGOD.com and he is presently using her as a road map to take us into Zion. Of course our Pope can simply tell us whether this is the truth or not.
Sister Lucia is the visionary and receiver of the ‘Third Secret of Fatima’. Sister Lucia states that the Blessed Mother told her that she was not the one to decipher the message. I place www.ILOVEYOUGOD.com as a contender as the one to decipher Messianic Reign Mother Mary's message of the Third Secret of Fatima. I, Steven Merten, author of, or better said, conceiver of, 'I Love You, God', humbly place www.ILOVEYOUGOD.com as a contender for the position of the message that the great messenger brings to earth in the era of the apocalypse. It is not Archangel Michael, the great messenger, himself who shines forth at the Apocalypse, but his message. I put forth www.ILOVEYOUGOD.com as a contender for the position of the message that Michael delivers, from Mary, which she received from God. www.ILOVEYOUGOD.com is simply that powerful. It is a gift from God. I am only the one to conceive her, as a parent conceives the gift of a child from God. The Pope, Bishops and people of the world are free to decide if I have deciphered this correctly.
The weapon Archangel Michael carries, portrayed as a rod or sword, is the sword of Christ’s mouth, Church anathema. Church anathema is the Church’s Christ given power to call upon Him to bind people to their sins. Anathema is Christ’s, and His soldiers', weapon, on the battlefield of Armageddon. Anathema is a spiritual death weapon. The globe cross Michael carries symbolizes 'Thy Kingdom Come' of Messianic Reign. Jesus, with Archangel Michael and his angels, ushers in Messianic Reign on the battlefield of Armageddon.
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. She was with child and wailed aloud in pain as she labored to give birth. 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 diadems. Its tail swept away a third of the stars in the sky and hurled them down to the earth. Then the dragon stood before the woman about to give birth, to devour her child when she gave birth. She gave birth to a son, a male child, destined to rule all the nations with an iron rod. Her child was caught up to God and his throne. 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. Then war broke out in heaven; 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, was thrown down to earth, and its angels were thrown down with it. 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.
www.ILOVEYOUGOD.com welcomes sparing and debate with any other legitimate challengers for this position. When we go into Messianic Reign, Archangel Michael will be, or have been, here on earth. Leading Christ's troops into combat with Satan, under Christ's command, and defeating Satan, and then delivering us into Messianic Reign and Zion, is simply what Michael does. It is our King Jesus, Commanding and fighting Satan, from heaven, through His army on earth. Michael and his angels, deployed by Jesus, with Christ's weapon, are Christ's fighting force on earth at Armageddon. The moment Christ's followers, on earth, are living in Zion, Archangel Michael, the great messenger, will have been here, on earth.
I ask the future citizens of Zion, from the prospective of living in Zion under Messianic Reign, with the Battle of Armageddon, by then, in thier past, to judge whether or not my, copywrite dated, www.ILOVEYOUGOD.com has deciphered the Blessed Mother's message of the coming of Messianic Reign, correctly. Thank you and may God bless you all.
