We continue the reflection of the recent message of Our Lady given on 7/2/2011, I want to remind the reader this one thing that the Queen of Peace said at the beginning of the year 2011.
“Dear Children, you are God’s Family…”
Reflect on these words as a reminder of who we are. We are God’s people. We are God’s children. Children learn from their parents. Children are to model their parents and parental role as they become adult children.
We are God’s people, and belonged to God first.
In the previous reflection part 2, I said I once asked God Who am I? Over the course of 20 years in my conversion experience and growing in relationship in the family of God, I have come to know who I am and why I was sent to this earth, and what my purpose is. I now have an absolute identity in the eyes of God.
Having an identity and knowing why the Lord formed you in the womb and put His Spirit in you, makes the purpose of life all the more worth living. I have no other desire but to get to heaven to be once more with my heavenly family. That is where I want to be. But I know the road is narrow, and I have to pass through this deserted exiled world and persevere to the end until I get there.
But I have a road map. This road map consists of the Sacred Scriptures, and the messages of the Mother of God. It is the quickest way out of the desert.
I have passed through the fiery furnace of purification countless times. I know I am not done yet. But I do know I am being led on the right path with my dear Mother holding my hand walking with me, teaching me, guiding me and protecting me along the way.
When I need to rest and the journey gets to hard, I rest with her, and just let she and Jesus hold me until I am able to go on.
So now, the path to a pure heart. It is simply put, and it is the most repeated word in the Holy Bible, “live the commandments, do not forsake the Commandments, live the Beatitudes, and grow in virtue.”
Simple right? Not so!
We are a weak and fallen in nature people. Our natural inclination in the flesh is to sin. Sin is the enemy of the flesh. The flesh and the spirit are opposed to each other says St. Paul, Romans chapter 8
God knows the weakness of man. Which is why God has given us a road map in the way to follow Him on our way back to our true home. If you want to know how to get to heaven, it is all mapped out for us. If we are uncertain of the direction to walk, the universal Church is steering the ship and the course for us. The answer is with the authority Jesus left for us on this earth. The Holy Catholic Apostolic Church.
God calls His people to live His commandments. This was the call of Moses who was to lead a nation out of sin and bondage and was handed the Commandments from God; or more simply put, the household rules to live in God’s family, as God’s children. These Commandments and precepts are the absolute authority over the human being. Remember, Jesus said He did not come to abolish the Law of God, but to fulfill it. Therefore we as God’s people, God’s family are not here to abolish the Law of God as our government wants to do, but to live it, and fulfill it as our savior did.
For this purpose, and for the purpose of Our Lady’s message of 7/2/2011, the Mother is calling us to set out with her, that is to walk with her and her way to the heart of her Son. But we need to begin by confessing the offenses that separated us from Him. We have to admit that we have broken the house rules. She wants us to see it first and admit it, confess it, and make it right as a good Mother would want in her home to keep peace.
Really, does this sound reasonable to ask of her children? She knows what’s going to upset the Father. She knows the Father’s justice, and wants to spare her children from the justice of God which my friends WE REALLY DESERVE.
In the Ten Commandments the Lord demands parents to raise their children in the Lord, and DRILL HIS COMMANDMENTS INTO THEIR MIIND from generation to generation. Parents are to live by good example since the family and the parents of the family are the first teachers to their children.
The family is the original cell of society. If there is a breakdown in society, it is because there is a breakdown in the family. The family is the first school of love in the proper order of God’s family handed down from us from the beginning of time.
This my friends however as the Lord says to His people is a ‘wicked and perverse generation.’ And that we are and we will go down in history as just this! We are the wayward children of Israel in the bible. And just as historically taught of this people, we the people of God have been handed over to the enemy to have his way over us.
Remember, the Lord has allowed satan to try the Church for a period of time. Our Lady said this, and it is documented by former popes. That time is now. The Lord has permitted this to test the fidelity of His people. We have become as a people of God, as one human race, an adulterous bride who is aborting the seed of the Word gifted to us from the bridegroom Jesus Christ.
I am convinced that until we are able to give birth to the Word of God in the world, will not abortion stop, because we are spiritually aborting the seed of Jesus planted in our hearts, which has manifested into these physical abortions.
The Queen of Peace concludes this message given on 7/2/2011 with these words…
“…You my children are gathering around me full of enthusiasm, desire and expectations, and I implore the Good Father to, through the Holy Spirit, put my Son, faith into your purified hearts. My children, obey me, and set out with me…”
This is what the Mother is asking the Father to do? She is asking the Father by the power of the Holy Spirit, put Jesus and faith into hearts that are open to receive Him after they have been purified in confession. Where there is the Mother, and the Holy Spirit, Jesus is going to be born.
But look at what Blessed Mother said to her children, “you my children are gathering around me full of enthusiasm, desire and expectation…”
What frame of mind are we going to meet her? Enthusiasm is good, desire is good, but what happens when we expect something and it is not met? We get disappointed, and let down and then grow angry.
What expectations do we have when we go to meet her? What grand imaginations we have in our expectations. Should we go with expectation to meet the Mother of God? Absolutely not prideful man! We should expect nothing! She is a gift!
Why did she say this to her own children?
Go back to her opening words…”I call you to a difficult and painful step for your unity with my Son…”
Are we expecting the cross when we come to her or go to Medjugorje? No! I am sure most are not.
Most are expecting to see the wonders and awes of Medjugorje. But this is not what Medjugorje is about. Medjugorje is about the call to conversion, living the way of the Cross as following Jesus and fulfilling the Fatima apparitions to holiness in the vocation of marriage, holy orders and religious life. She is calling us to an extraordinary way of life unknown to this world today of entertainment and comfort. We are called to perfect love, to sacrifice our lives for the salvation of souls, to lay our lives down for ones friend…
If you are living the call and the message of Medjugorje, you know to the depth of your being how difficult it is to put this to life in this world, how painful it is to see the Mother of God rejected by her own Church, her own children in the Church, her own priest sons, by her own family.
You know how painful it is to see Jesus rejected by the world, to see God rejected and removed from the mouths and the gov’t places. You are being persecuted as He was, you are suffering and carrying heavy and laden burdens…as intercessors for a broken and unfaithful world.
The world needs its Mother to love it, to heal it and to comfort it. The world needs its Father, its Creator to usher us back into a community of peace once more. The world needs its savior to come and claim the Victory once and for all. The world needs the Holy Spirit to come in Truth and convict it in truth and remind us of all that Jesus taught us. The world cannot live without God.
Below is a prayer of reparation to God for the United States. Please keep this prayer at the forefront for the sake of the Family of God…
Prayer for the United States
O Merciful GOd, we cry to Thee for pardon and for mercy. We are “an unbelieving and perverse generation”. We are disobedient, disloyal and ungrateful to Thee. We have excluded Thee from our homes, our schools, our business places. We are no longer worthy to be called Thy children. But Merciful God, spare my country!
Forgive us! Save us from the scourge which we have deserved, especially the killing of the innocent unborn babies. Teach us Thy law and move our wills to serve Thee, henceforth. Merciful God, please spare America!
God Almighty, Lord of all nations, bless us all with lasting peace; give us strength in tribulations; may Thy blessings never cease. We shall always sing Thy praise: Holy, Holy, Holy God our Lord. Amen.
“Blessed are the peacemakers, they shall be called children of God…” (Matt. 5)
