As we continue with the reflection of our Lady’s message given through Mirjana on 8/2/11 and where we left off in part I of the reflection it is safe to say, and I am sure many will agree, that there are many divisions and agendas in the House of God and for this case we are going to say in God’s Family.
Many in the family of God today are of a thinking that they are the one who is right, self righteous, boast in this idealism that everyone is a greater sinner than ourself.
Just yesterday as one example I posted the ABC news source recently aired about Medjugorje and the apparitions of Our Lady. One single woman claiming her Catholic identity outright attacked the posting claiming everyone involved or believing in Medjugorje is a fornicator and satan worshipper.
Where is the Christian attitude here? I hear only the accusers voice, which to me personally if the enemy is speaking this loud, there must have been great fruit that came for it to retaliate in such a way. Therefore praise God.
But case in point…one example of division. Can we judge faith? If one believe and another does not, are we to judge what someone believes? In this same ABC report, Vicka was asked “what do you say to those who do not believe?” Her response was, “I love all believers and non-believers…”
We have to love people where they are at in their state in life and accept them in this way.
We forget the keys of the Kingdom were given by Jesus Christ to Peter to Whom the apostolic mission would continue from generation to generation on earth.
Here is where the authority lies – Peter the Rock! Jesus the Son of God gave authority to no one else on earth.
The spirit of the world master minded by satan seeks only to destroy the world, the Church, her members, and especially the shepherds and apostles chosen by God. It hates, and only hates, and wants to kill and use any measure to destroy what is of God.
The Lord however in His will, wants to keep His mystical body; His family with a Mother and a Father united with the same mind and heart to keep the family together, praying together and staying together in unity with one voice of prayer and adoration. And where there is unity, there is power!
The Father as Creator has ordained it so for this unity to come and pass through only Jesus Christ, His only begotten Son. It is through the way of Jesus we must “Passover” to be born anew as Our Lady speaks of often.
The way of passover is through the way of Jesus Christ who has been given as gift to the world. In Jesus Christ, we reject sin, the world, the flesh and the devil by order of our baptism into new life with Him, and pick up our daily crosses, whatever that cross may be for us. We carry it with love, embrace it, love it (that is he or she); and press into it.
Give thought to the family of God for a moment, which is a perfect family.
There is a good Mother (Blessed Virgin Mary) and a good Father.
There is the first born; Jesus Christ and those adopted through Him by order of baptism. Then there are those who come from a different sheepfold, that is those of other faiths and denominations.
But all are created by the same Creator, One Creator and one and the same God who all dwell under the universal soverignty and protection of the Creator, God.
Universal members with one universal Father and Mother. What is the one desire then of a Father and Mother for their children?
That is that the children love each other and remain united in the same family obedient to Father and Mother for their well being.
What happens when families are divided, torn apart, broken down or divorced, saying maybe missing a Father and a Mother?
Very simple…there is discord, divisions, hatred, anger war and so on among the members of the family and its children, each one taking the side of another. And look at the sin that comes with it, and the impact it has on the children and generations to come.
Together in unity the family is strong and can bear whatever may come its way. But if divided all seems lost and many fall into despair.
Does a loving Father and Mother want this to happen in their families? Absolutely not!
The Mother and Father must first pull together themselves for the sake of the family and the children and unite as one body to strengthen the unit.
Isn’t it obvious then why the Father in Heaven has sent the Mother to help us this way, and to teach us how to live as God’s people? She is gathering us back into God’s family, and with great hopes we can do it, if we listen to her and put to life the messages she is giving to the world in our daily life. She does not want to see her children get the divine spanking, as most Mothers do not want for their children, but will heed to the authority of the Father if necessary.
Our Lady begins her message with “I call you to be born anew in prayer and through the Holy Spirit, to become NEW PEOPLE WITH MY SON…”
If we are secure in Jesus knowing we cannot do anything without Him, we are able to press into all sufferings and trials knowing He is our savior and our secure way.
Let us all pray for the gift of unity to come among the people of God, to build a Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. Ave Maria!
