Concluding with what we began in the first part of this post, related to the message of 11/25/12 given by Our Lady to the world which said:
“Dear children! In this time of grace, I call all of you to renew prayer. Open yourselves to Holy Confession so that each of you may accept my call with the whole heart. I am with you and I protect you from the ruin of sin, but you must open yourselves to the way of conversion and holiness, that your heart may burn out of love for God. Give Him time and He will give Himself to you and thus, in the will of God you will discover the love and the joy of living. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
Our Lady reminds us that we are in a time of grace. She said, “I call all of you to renew prayer…” The term ALL OF YOU MEANS EVERY HUMAN BEING. She is leaving no body out. Every human being is called to turn to God in prayer. When we pray, we are open to her if we are praying with the heart. If we are praying with the heart, then we are able to examine ourselves and realize that we need holy confession, so that every human being will begin to purge from his heart sin and be open to grace to be “able to accept her call with whole hearts.“
The Mother of God, your Mother and my Mother is here now in this world. She comes from eternity, God’s time in Heaven to enter into time in this hour of tribulation to protect us from ruin and sin, (as she said in the message above) and from satan who is cunning and leading many hearts to perdition, (message of 10/25/12)
She cannot help any of her children if they are not open to her, because she will not force herself over anyone’s free will.. We have to desire this with our whole heart to be open, our hearts must burn in love for God. Think about this. A heart that burns in love is a heart filled with the flames of love, it is refined, made holy and pure. We only have need to look at the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart to understand. These Two hearts are flaming hearts filled with the fire of the Holy Spirit.
The Two Hearts of Jesus and mercy however, have been pierced, scorned, unloved, wounded, mocked, humiliated, and suffered all kinds of indifference and tortures. Both of the Two Hearts of Jesus and Mary never faltered in faith, or for their love of God the Father and neighbor. Their hearts are always fixed on the work of redemption, and overcame such trials and triumph over the sins of the world.
In their humanity they grew into holiness; (Lk. 2) They grew in wisdom and in stature with a deep knowledge and understanding of God. Blessed Mother had 33 years of life with her Son on earth. 30 of those years were her Nazareth time alone with him in complete intimacy with God. Until the final (3) years when Jesus began His public mission for the salvation of souls. We know this by faith, and tradition of the Catholic faith. They grew in the Holy Spirit until they were ready to stand firm for the day that came when Jesus would suffer and die on the cross for the sins of men while Our Lady was able to stand by and profess, ‘Amen so be it.”
So here we are today, 31+ years of Medjugorje. Our Nazareth years with the Mother of God who is forming us in her Son, in the same spirit she was given in her earthly life. 31 years of a time of grace where the veil of heaven is lifted so that we can come to know the Lord and encounter Him in our prayer.
Our Lady has come to us. The grace we have is her time with us. This is our Nazareth time with her. She gives herself freely with open arms to those who are open to her, and to give us her Son, so that Jesus her Son will be so called impregnated in our souls and in the heart, and grow to maturity in us.
She comes as the Mother of the New Advent filled with the Word of God, to tell the world that God exists. She magnifies the Lord as the Woman clothed with the Sun in her appearance, that is with the light of God to give light to the world that God exists. She has come to crush the head of satan with her heel, that is her virtues, her way of holiness living in human souls. She has come to put emnity between the seed of satan, and has been planting her little seeds all over the globe.
If you have gone to Medjugorje, the seeds of Our Lady’s virtues have been planted in you. You dear children of Mary are called to cultivate and bring life to the seed through prayer and sacramental living.
You see, if we live the message as her witness, sin will be defeated in you, and virtue will triumph, which opposes the proud and lawless one.
Time has to be made for God to accomplish her work in the heart. Time given to God allows the Lord to plant this seeds of life in the heart. If we are not praying we are not open. If we are not going to confession, then the marks of sin remain on the soul and leads one into further darkness, and farther away from God. There are many who are withholding as well in the confessional, not confessing deep rooted sins, which still leaves the soul into darkness.
If we go to Confession, our souls is returned to sanctifying grace, made clean in the mercy of God, then God freely gives Himself to the soul and the Kingdom of God comes upon him, then Jesus will come into the areas of the heart where He wants new life to be formed in us.
When one is living with God – he has everything. Life without God has no future or hope. But when one is living in the will of God He discovers the love and joy of living, just as our Lady said above in her message.
Now friends, look around you; for the day of tribulation is here and covers the globe – assaulting everyone on earth as the Lord said it would. Is there anyone who is not on the cross today?
Now we will see who can withstand this time of tribulation, and who remains faithful to God in this YEAR OF FAITH. We have a great opportunity in this time to exercise faith, and watch God work His greatest miracles. It was faith that moved the heart of Jesus to such miracles. This is a time to go deeper in faith and be a sign and witness to faith and the presence of Our Lady in the world especially to those who do not know the love of God.
The Lord said to pray int he gospels, pray that you are able to withstand and have the strength to escape the tribulation. Ask the Lord to pray for you in this way, as He did with His apostles, knowing their weakness and knowing ours. The day is coming friends when the Lord will reveal Himself to the world. The great sign is coming when every human being will look upon Him Whom they have pierced and all will see himself in truth as the Lord sees them.
Will you be able to stand firm before the Son of Man in your state in life today? This is the question you must ask.
Some will die of fright when this day comes. Some will tear at the flesh and will not be able to endure. But that day is imminent and looming over the world.
The answer is to walk with Our Lady in this time, who has said so often, “I am here to help you.” She will clothe us in her holy garments, for the day that comes.
Rejoice! Your redemption is at hand. The Kingdom of God is near. Come Lord Jesus!
