You are God’s Children

Dear children!  Listen to me.  I am your Mother...

You know dear friends, as a mother, I often feel like I sound like a broken record to my kids. I have to repeat to them over and over and say the same thing in different ways with the hope that it just might sink in.

And today I feel like I share the heart in this way of the Mother of God; who tirelessly, and repeatedly is saying the same thing to her children.

And boy, its just not sinking in is it as it would appear in this message given on 7/25/12? (see below)

“Dear children! Today I call you to the ‘good’. Be carriers of peace and goodness in this world. Pray that God may give you the strength so that hope and pride may always reign in your heart and life because you are God’s children and carriers of His hope to this world that is without joy in the heart, and is without a future, because it does not have its heart open to God who is your salvation. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

I was able to take some time today and rest on these words before the Most Blessed Sacrament as I often do after Holy Mass. Following is how the prayer went as I reflected on her words from heaven, as the Holy Spirit was giving counsel. And then the Lord spoke in my heart very profound. So take notice of the movement of Spirit as I prayed:

You are God’s children!
– Children reflect the face of their parents – you are to reflect the face of God to a world that does not know God and rejects God
– You are to be a reflection of HOPE and JOY to a world that is falling into despair and does not know joy.
– The children of God have the sword of the Spirit; the Word of God in them that will cut through the most hardened heart; and yes the truth hurts!

YOU ARE GOD’S CHILDREN

Do you embrace your identity in these words?
Can you say I am son/daughter of the living God with my whole heart?

I have spoken of this before my friends. Family honor is the word here. Take pride in your Family honor! Our Lady is not talking about sinful pride. No! She is talking about taking to heart the fact that you are God’s children, church!

Jesus the Son of God lived what a child of God looks like, and brings light into the world and to this day Jesus the Son of God is still rejected by sinners.

If you are truly God’s children; you will reflect the light and the love of Jesus as a way of life. If you have received grace and mercy poured into your heart, it is because He wants you to pour grace and mercy out into the world! Live it!

Our Lady has said on many occasions that this is a time of great graces, but also great is the responsibility on those who are receiving this grace. Be a witness, be a carrier, be a vessel be an apostle, a disciple. How many ways can our dear Mother repeat herself to get the message across?

Pour out what you have received you who call yourselves Children of God!

Our Lady does not mince words. The world is in a state of hopelessness. The hearts of men are hardened to God and do not want to receive God. It this is the direction we choose there is no hope for a future, plan and simple. The world cannot exist without God. It will self destruct.

Why is this so? What’s gone wrong here?

It is because God’s children have squandered the inheritance. God’s children are wasting the graces they are receiving and not spending his talents wisely, but burying the treasure they have received in the ground as if they can keep it for themselves. God’s children are spending the inheritance on a life of dissipation and those who do not know God see His children who live this way, who call themselves Catholic and follow in their footsteps along the path to perdition as condoning the sin.

This child has been dead, but has come to life again!

And then I heard the Lord in the depth of my Heart say:

“Blind guides! Be forewarned – shall you who have received without cost possess what is not yours? Do you fore sake the Divine Giver of gifts and posses the gift as if it belonged to you? From Whom does the treasures of the earth come forth? From Whom do all blessings come? And see how now, right before your very eyes how I begin to strip away O wicked and perverse generation.

Where are you my children? I look down upon the earth and the light is dim. Where are my chosen ones; those who say they are mine? Where are you hiding? Come forth that I may see you and let your light shine, that I may see the beauty and the colors of my creation once more.

Come forth my children; step out of darkness. Fix your gaze upon what is above. Behold! My hand extends out to reach you and uphold you in this hour. Draw from me, Jesus Christ; all that you need to sustain you. Be a light; a ray of hope…”

As this word came in prayer, I saw an image before my eyes.

‘Jesus crucified on the cross hovering over the earth with the darkness of space behind him. From His wounds rays of light burst forth and with His right hand He extended towards the earth as if He is summoning His people to come out of their houses into the streets to look up to Him in the heavens. Extending his hands as if it were an invitation from Him to join Him on the cross.

The rays burst forth from His wounds in His bloodied body and shoot out into the universe and to all parts of the earth, filling up the small little houses in what I hear Him say are called; “spiritual houses.”

I understand He is filling up our spiritual houses to be the carriers of peace and goodness to take the light into a darkened world that does not know Him or His love; and this grace that comes is won by uniting with Him on the cross all of our suffering and daily crosses.

Unite with me my spouse

For those who will say YES to Him, He will empower with strength as Our Lady said in this message, to be that sign of hope for those who do not know hope.’

Step out of yourselves children of God! Step out in faith! Fix your gaze upon Him Whom they have crucified and draw from him all that you need.

Lord empower us to be your children, the visible sign of hope and joy in the midst of this dark world that does not know you and soften the hearts of even the most hardened sinner and set ablaze the cold and lukewarm hearts and all who have rejected you and the gift of salvation.

There is still more to this message, yet for today this is the way the Lord has called me to write. For your own discernment, pray to comprehend the message. Do not just read it and put it aside. Pray to comprehend the message!

Gather into God’s Family Part II

Be born anew in prayer through the Holy Spirit

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!

“I am the vine, you are the branches, apart from me you can do nothing…”

Gather into God’s Family – Part I

Gather into God's Family my children

“Dear children, Today I call you to be born anew in prayer and through the Holy Spirit, to become a new people with my Son; a people who knows that if they have lost God, they have lost themselves; a people who knows that, with God, despite all sufferings and trials, they are secure and saved.

I call you to gather into God’s family and to be strengthened with the Father’s strength.

As individuals, my children, you cannot stop the evil that wants to begin to rule in this world and to destroy it. But, according to God’s will, all together, with my Son, you can change everything and heal the world.

I call you to pray with all your heart for your shepherds [priests], because my Son chose them. Thank you.” (Queen of Peace message of 8/2/11)

I was able to have the opportunity to reflect on the message of 8/2/11 today at a deeper level. I asked Blessed Mother in my prayer to take me into a deeper understanding of the message not only for myself, but to share with all of you.

In the message her voice spoke very loud through the words of;

“… I call you to gather into God’s family and to be strengthened with the Father’s strength.”

It seems this is the center and focus of the whole message and its content. As I reflected deeper into these words, two images came to my heart as follows:

(1) “The image of a huge ship or a sea vessel came to my heart filled with many people and all were clothed in a great light. This vessel was being tossed about in the waves of a great storm and darkness covered the stormy seas. The ship was being steered by a mighty force of wind and treads through the water with ease through the song and prayer of those who travel in its cargo…”

(2) Then the image shifted to another, which was a large and great army marching together in unity, side by side with rosaries in hand. We are all clothed in a golden armor and the mighty power of God, marching forward with great power and strength. Together nothing can stop or penetrate this battalion of apostles for Jesus that Our Lady is leading. The Holy Trinity is above this great army in the heavens guiding the way, while all are marching forward and in truth. The Battle Hymn of Republic than began to sing in my heart.

There are two common themes in these images, that there is great power and strength in numbers, and the importance of unity; having prayer of one mind and heart for the fulfillment of the plans of God.

The Mother of God makes it clear. This battle we are in will not be won single handedly, but only united as one body, many members as the mystical body of Christ, and with and through Jesus Christ, the head of the whole Church.

Jesus has the victory and the triumph and will conquer with great force through His Church.

Each apostle of this army is positioned, and each member of the body have their unique call which they are armed with to fight this war waged against the Church and her members. But most importantly all her members must be united in faith and in prayer.

The Lord is the one in command. We are in great error if we think otherwise.

The Holy Spirit was leading me into an interesting insight, which I find myself to be a great problem and struggle in the Church today. And this needs to be said.

Many fall into the trap or the deception of possessing for themselves their so-called apostolate as their own, failing to see that the One who has called them to the mission gave the gift in the first place for the Church.

We become very territorial about “my mission.” Isn’t that what most say. “The Lord has called ME!” The big word “I” becomes the focus and the focus is lost on the one who qualified the call in us.

Remember dear apostles what has been freely given and freely received, must also be freely let go so the Holy Spirit is free to move as He pleases. Many are quenching this Holy Spirit, because of their sin of avarice and clinging to what does not belong to them in the first place.

Our Lady once said, “we do not possess and own anything of this world, but only our own sin, which remains with us.

If you are a Christian, and living the way of Jesus, there is nothing that we own as members of His mystical body. We are called to be working members of the body in order that Jesus Christ the Godhead may be made manifest in this world that does not know Him.

This world and its possessions are transitory. God gives and He takes away. It is the same with the gift of an apostolate that He forms in us. It is not ours to profit from. How many are there operating outside of the confines of the Church and making great profit I may add. Doing good works, yes! But who are they working for? And what Kingdom are they building?

This mindset needs to go. It needs to be rooted out of God’s House, that is…in God’s family home.

Think about heaven…does anyone possess anything in heaven? No. Is anyone more special in heaven than another;except for Jesus and Mary? No. Some have been elevated by the Church for extraordinary lives lived on earth, but all are equally loved in the eyes of God.

Thus it should be so, here on earth in God’s house, for God’s family. There is no “this is my mission, or yours…” or I this or that is my charism and so on.

There is no profit in this way of thinking my friends, for what the Lord gives as gift, He expects a great return in its place, and a chance for us to win merit for our own salvation, and I emphasize the words “chance to win merit“.

This mission you have been given may be the help you need to win salvation for your own soul, and to help you grow more in virtue. The gift however, is meant to serve His living body in the universal Church for the salvation of souls.

We cannot market the Holy Spirit for profit and possess that which is not ours in the first place. I witness this myself by many in the church. And these are now failing the test.

Use the gift of God you have received to help build up, strengthen and renew the universal church, which is the mystical vessel to which salvation comes to the world. We each possess a piece of building material in the gift received, to build up the majestic Ark of salvation for mankind, to be made ready for all God’s family to enter.

Who robs from the construction site to build His own ship or his kingdom? I think we know who is behind this deception. Surely this ship will sink in the final day; for it sails apart into uncharted waters and will be un-seaworthy.

If we are gathered together as one, all working for the same glory of God and not for our own glory, we are adorned with the strength of the Father Himself. There is much to reflect on already here.

I will conclude here as part I of this reflection, and will continue to pick it up in part II. As usual this message from heaven has a great mystery hidden within the simple words spoken by the dear Mother of God.

“According to the grace of God given to me, like a wise master builder I laid a foundation, and another is building upon it. But each one must be careful how he builds upon it, for no one can lay a foundation other than the one that is there, namely Jesus Christ. If anyone builds on this foundation…the work of each will come to light, for the Day will disclose it. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire itself will test the quality of each ones work…” (1 Cor. 3:10-13)

In other words when the test comes, will the work stand? If it is built for the sake of the name of Jesus Christ, it will stand. If it is built for man’s glory, no glory will come to man.

Prodigal Children, Come Home – Part 4 of 4

Father forgive them, they know not what they are doing...

“Dear children, today I call you to a difficult and painful step for your unity with my Son. I call you to complete admission and confession of sins, to purification. An impure heart cannot be in my Son and with my Son. An impure heart cannot give the fruit of love and unity. An impure heart cannot do correct and just things; it is not an example of the beauty of God’s love to those who surround it and to those who have not come to know that love. 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, set out with me.”

Afterwards Mirjana said that as Our Lady left she saw a scene that showed darkness on the left and a cross in golden light on the right. Mirjana said she believed that this was Our Lady’s way of showing the difference between a purified and unpurified heart.

As we conclude the reflection of the most recent message from the Mother of God given on 7/2/2011, my hope is that an understanding is coming to light of where we are at as a people of God, or better yet, the prodigal family of God.

The Father is waiting for His children to come back home to His embrace, that is every one of us who have squandered the inheritance and His blessings, through the frivolous spending of excessive entertainment and material wants. He is waiting with open arms and has the fattened calf ready for the great feast.

However recall in this parable, it is the prodigal son who admits what He has done, when he has nothing left, and has been stripped of everything including his dignity before returning to His Father’s embrace. And only then does he kneel before the Father and confesses his sin of disobedience and licentious life he spent wandering as the wayward child.

(If necessary, God the Father will permit you to be stripped to nothing if you cannot return on your knees by your own will, for He is determined to have your salvation and knows what is best for you.)

The Father however upon hearing the remorse of His son, forgets it all, and embraces His son with great delight and welcomes him back home with overwhelming joy and celebration.

Come on dear children of the Family of God. It’s time to come home. Admit your sin, and confess it to the one who forgives, receive His absolution and be made pure. This is what the Mother wants for you. She wants you back home with her in the one loving family.

I saw this quote recently. Consider these words and live by them…

“JESUS CHRIST IS NOT A RELIGION, HE IS OUR SAVIOR. THERE IS NO SALVATION GIVEN UNDER ANY OTHER NAME, BUT THROUGH JESUS CHRIST MAY EVER KNEE BEND.”

“All Christians in any state or walk of life are called to the fullness of Christian life and to the perfection of charity. All are called to holiness. Be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect.” (CCC 2013)

The Path to a Pure Heart in God’s Family part 3 of 4

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you...

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)
