3:17 – 4:27 pm (a very personal message)
“Take heed, therefore, My son, that thou treat not curiously of these things which exceed thy knowledge…” My Imitation of Christ.
I was so sad at Mass today. I felt as if this whole world is so terrible and not worth saving but for kids. No wonder You want us to be like kids. They don’t worry. They expect.
(There was a lot more to our conversation which I've omitted, but I believe this applies to all of us.
Belovéd Child, do you not know by now, I am in your Heart always and I am the very source of your precious Life? I am yours as a father is to a daughter. I calm you when you are anxious and applaud you when you are pleased. Child, is humility so difficult for you when it is given to you by Me or in My Name? Would you prefer the riches of the World over that which I have for you? Why are you anxious about that which is so temporal? Worry about your Soul and think only of Eternal Life. Embrace your state of humility. Do not concern yourself with the memories of this World but know that I am ever pleased and delighted with you, Belovéd Child. I speak plainly to My Cherished Monkey. You worry too often about things I have already answered or planned. Believe that your Eternal Father and Loving Lord looks after you always with great joy and Love and I do not abandon you. Worry only about being My Obedient Child. Leave your Heart perpetually open to My work for you and in obedience of My Will. My plans for you are perfect and drawn by the hand of Love and Divinity.
I touch each Child thus and have great plans for the littlest Child and plans for those you would consider great. Child, think on this. I can give to you or any of My Belovéd Children all the riches of this World. You have seen those who have so much more than you, as you think in your Worldly mind. There are many who you would say have far less than you and in this World, it gives you higher position here. You have heard Me say often, do not judge. Do not judge the severity of sins in your Brothers and Sisters, because only I can judge, and every one of My Belovéd Children are sinful creatures. But think and pray about this. Many of those men who are surrounded by the exorbitant wealth of this World are led by avarice and corrupted minds and Souls. Many have succumbed to overbearing pride and have forgotten the poor and lowly. Many engage in such debauchery as to make the Angels in Heaven gasp in disgust and turn their Holy Eyes away from the World they so joyfully gaze upon. Many, many in their riches do not know Me or, indeed, know Me but choose to denigrate Me and My Son, the Christ Jesus. Oh, the wealthy of this World are very blessed in their riches, say you, but I say no. Do not fall into the trap of temporal desires and cheap treasures.
If you did not know Me or chose to dismiss My Loving Heart, would you be better or worse off than rich men? Who will have riches and Divine joy in Eternity? You who know Me and are humbled and impoverished and sick and faced with such hardships, and yet you do not turn your back on your Lord God and Father, because your faith in My Great Love for you is tested by fire and has emerged strong and unbreakable? Or shall I decorate the whole of Heaven with the Men who placed wealth above the Lord God and Heavenly King, My Belovéd Son, Christ Jesus? Will these men live in Eternal joy or will avarice have doomed their Souls?
Child, count yourself with those who are Blessed. You do not make your mark here in this prideful World, but stamp it upon My Own Heart by your Love and Obedience to Me.
Father, I know pride is my problem and thanks for showing me (again). But I don’t think I’m very obedient to You. I’m stubborn and forget me trying to behave like a saint. I just fail You so much and I’m in a perpetual state of guilt over it. That makes me angrier at myself because I don’t want to be propelled by guilt to do whatever for you. If I am, THEN it's like it doesn’t count. And THEN, when I reason things out, it’s my pride that mucks up all the answers I thought I had. And THEN, what about the state of this world? I was partly mopey over it again, and I couldn’t help hoping for the “Grand Whatever,” even though You always tell me not to wish for it. Father, in my pride, I’m also nosey and looking for action. See?? In wanting something “interesting” to happen, I am being disobedient TWICE!! because I’m not content in being calm and quiet. I'm like that pain in the neck kid who wants perpetual entertainment. Why do You bother with Me??
Child, in your doubt, I am offended. My Love for you does not grow tepid when you are disobedient or inattentive. I have made you and I know every particle of your being, Child. I have placed your curiosity in your head and generosity in your Heart. I have given you your impatience and your joyful nature. For I am your Lord God and Eternal Father. I have known you always, and thus, your frustrations and agonies are not a mystery or surprise to Me. My joy is in seeing you try so hard to be obedient, and even in failing, knowing and trying again.
Belovéd Child, where you are impatient and overbearing, I am patient and gentle. Where you are bored or saddened by this World, I am content and BIG. The World does nothing that I cannot see or undo or repair.
I am the Lord God and I have created this World for My Children. I have placed each leaf on each tree and every animal in its lair and I have created each of My Belovéd Children with Great Love and a tenderness of Heart you cannot, in your delightful smallness, fathom. You are right to be such small and Belovéd Children. You are in need of constant protection by your Heavenly Parent and I look over you with such Love and hope. [This was so affectionate and indulgent.]
Children, do not ever believe I ignore you or your prayers. I do not ignore your pleas and hear every prayer. Do you trust in My Answers, My Children? Or do you fight My Divine Will and thereby question My Great Love for you?
Oh, Children of My Light, pray and cease concerning yourselves with the temporal. Do not spend your precious time riddling about your Lives here. Trust in Me. Know that those difficulties you face today are in reparation for Man’s sins and you save so many Souls by your suffering. And so, you see suffering as the furthest circumstance from joy, but, My Children, your suffering now is cause for TREMENDOUS joy later in Eternal Life where you shall be met with Great Love and boundless gifts for your obedience and trust. Thus, My Children, trust Me even in your sufferings, be they big or small.
Belovéd Children, you must use your Time in prayer. Dedicate yourselves to the Eucharist that is God, made through the utter Sacrifice of My Belovéd Son, the Christ Jesus, (who) died upon the Cross. He has prepared the doors to Mercy and they are opened to each of you with such Love. Belovéd Children, I forgive your every sin and lift you up. You need only come to Me, Children. I long to heal your broken Hearts and cleanse your Souls of sin. Children, you are for Me as I am for you. Sons and Father. Father and Son. You are My Belovéd Children. Come to your Loving Lord God and Merciful Father. Allow Me to lead you to Heaven by the righteous path My Belovéd Son laid out for you by His HUGE Sacrifice.
Oh, Children, do not let this great gift of Mercy pass you by. It is surely an ineffable and invaluable gift. Do not be the one to understand this regrettably late when you stand before Righteous Judgment. Children, come to Me in My Mercy, and I shall make you Whole. Do not wait, and pray for those who are unmoving, for so soon they will be severely pushed to move. Let them come to Me of their own volition, for to be forced is doubly terrible. [Our prayer helps them see God now, instead of them not walking with God and being pushed.]
Children, know I say to pray, to be obedient, to partake of the Most Precious Body of the Lamb. Partake of the Eucharist that is God often, daily. Children, I say this to you with urgency. It is your choice, but a Father who Loves His Children does everything in His Power to protect His Children and bring them succor and solace in their Times of need. Seek My Mercy through devout and Heart-filled penances or reconciliation. Do not dismiss these Blesséd things, for these are what sustain your Souls and provide you strength when your faith and trust in Me (are) most threatened. You are guided clearly by the Spirit that descends into this World that you may easily distinguish between that which is truly white and made up of only truth from that which is black, hiding in the guise of white.
Children, increase your trust in Me. Pray. Let the foundations of your Love for Me be made immovable, for it is the most prayerful and most devout who shall be tested harshly. Pray, My Children, for constant prayer strengthens you and brings Souls to Me (so) that they are protected by My Love and righteousness, and their Souls are preserved from the darkness that is hell. Belovéd Children, so many fall. So many shall fall because this World has dismissed My Laws and the Divinity of My Most Belovéd Son, the Christ Jesus. So many of My Children have been fooled into believing nothing but this World exists. That sin that is unrecognized goes unpunished. That this Life is meant to be used in such a way that has brought the degree and quantity and calibre of sin to garish and horrid places or things. The debauchery within this World warps so many of My Belovéd Children, and My Loving and Divine Heart breaks minutely as I watch My Children ignore Me. My Pleas, My invitations to Love and Mercy, and My urgent warnings too.
Children, come to Me now. Do you think the earth will cease purging itself of its disgust for your sinful actions? It is due to your great sins that more, greater storms shall come. Greater than even the greatest you have seen, and fires will run faster and in great largeness across the lands throughout this World and the earth shall spew its fire and ash in places unexpected and the groans of earth shall grow louder and more fearsome. Thus, Children, pray. Your prayers mitigate and postpone the greatest of disasters, yet many big or surprising disasters will befall this World. If calamity cannot open the eyes of My Children, the Hand of God shall reach down into this World and demonstrate the justice and righteousness of your Lord God and Father, and you will know the Souls of your own Hearts.
Pray, Belovéd Children. Pray for those who sin against Me so recklessly and without regard for My Warnings or for Judgement. Pray for My Belovéd Servants who will also suffer for their devotion to the Christ. My Servants will be greatly tested and will be waylaid by their brethren. Do not be saddened, My Faithful Children. Reside in My Sacred and penetrating Heart. Let your trust and Love for your Lord God remain firm. I am with you always and wait with great ardor to give you such sweet gifts!
Belovéd Children, pray and pray deeply or intently for those who murder and destroy My Precious Little Flowers. Their punishment will be meted out quickly and without Mercy. Theirs shall be a darkened hell, and thus, they must come to Me for My Love and Mercy in reparation for their grave sin.
Children, your Time is gone. You have no Time to be argumentative or stubborn. It is now in these very days that your Hearts should be in constant and dedicated prayer. Thus, My Children, pray. Pray and know fully I answer your sweet pleas with a Loving Heart and with the wisdom of an attentive parent. Peace, My Children. Peace in these days.
