We continue from Part 1 of 4 the Difficult and painful way to Jesus we go on to reflect on the Mother’s message from 7/2/11.
The next part of the message from Our Lady is this… she describes very clearly what damage is done by an impure heart:
“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.
AN IMPURE HEART 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….”
These are very strong points made of the infectious disease of the impure heart.
IMPURE HEART… is the word the Blessed Mother uses…there is no accident in these words…heaven does not make mistakes…
(Dear friends, please realize I am not preaching, but speaking from experience. What I speak is what God has shown us in my own life through my own sinful ways as one who was literally destined for hell at one point in her life. Our Lady, my dear Mother, pulled me out of the pit, and walked with me into a new life with her. Please take to heart these words…they are very serious my friends, very serious…and those who know me know that I tell it like it is very boldly.)
What is an impure heart?
This is a heart that entertains sin. It is filled with lust, greed, idolatry, drunkenness, pornography, fornication (which is sex outside of marriage); adultery (sex with someone other than your spouse); homosexuality, addictions, vices and you name it I can go on…An impure heart is selfish, prideful, envious, deceitful, angry or hateful. It is gluttonous, slothful and covets or desires wants and never happy with what it has as gift…an impure heart desires the world and its things and puts God behind the worldly things…
There are so many lessons of impurity in the bible.
Jesus said, “even when a man looks at a woman with lust he has already committed adultery with her in the heart….” THAT’S AN IMPURE HEART
A person whose heart is filled with such darkness has breached His covenant with God and leaves no room for God in it. He has broken faith with God and rejects God. It is repeated throughout the scriptures what happens to the one who commits such sin and does not repent from it. The Lord said very clearly that those who do such things and live in such a manner cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
And much worst if this person of impurity is receiving Holy Communion with such sin and knowledge of it; it is a grave and mortal sin, male or female alike.
Now look around you. Look within your own heart. You only need to go as far as your local high school, or college campus to see what we as parents have condoned and taught in the home to our children, because these youth are living out impurity in epidemic proportion. Look at what we entertain in our homes. Look at what we entertain in the media, televisions, movies, video games and more…
Guess who is going to answer for this on judgement day?
It will not be just the children who will be judged by behavior. And honestly any parent who loves their child would not desire hell for their child. But the parent themselves will be in a worst place than the child…because the Lord said…“it would be better for that one to tie a millstone around his neck and be throne into the sea for leading these little ones to sin…”
Yes parents! You will stand before God on your judgement day and will have to atone for how you led your children on the path of hell, because they were not taught about God in the home, or His commandments.
Two of the visionaries, Vicka and Jacov were taken to heaven, hell and purgatory in the early days of the apparitions. Vicka describes what she saw on each account. About hell she said she saw a young woman who was very beautiful on earth entering the flames of hell, cursing God and her parents for not teaching her about God. And when she came out of the flames of hell, she was a gross beast.
This witness when I heard it made me really think about my role as Mother. And boy was I a vigilant mother. The thought of seeing my beautiful daughters in hell horrified me. And I knew I had to do whatever it take to make sure they only sought heaven.
My daughters know that I love them, and I begged them as a mother with countless tears to please keep their eyes on Jesus and Mary. I confessed to them that I am not a perfect mother and I will for sure let them down in my imperfections. But I am a mother that loves them and wants the best for them. The best is heaven. Not things of the world. But only heaven.
I teach my children to go to the Mother of God when they need me. Because the Mother of God teaches me how to be like her, and to be the mother my children need me to be.
So what I am saying again I repeat; comes from experience. We had to learn this my friends in our own home and decide for change.
When our sin was brought to light to us, we just about died, knowing the future salvation of our children was hell. Not only for ourselves, but we were leading them there.
My husband and I had committed every sin against the sacrament of marriage and were living licentious lives before marriage, and committed almost every abomination in the eyes of God, from the beginning of our relationship with co-habitation, fornication, birth control, partying non-stop, and more…
We also lived the fruits of our sin, which was a horrible situation in our marriage, division, abuse, adultery, pornography and so on. It got completely out of control. Until the day I turned to the Lord and cried out and said, “I believe in my marriage sacrament, I believe you do not want us to divorce, so you need to fix this.”
The Lord then began to show me, that if this is what I wanted, then I needed to change first. I thought I was fine, that it was all him, (my husband that is). Then I learned the change first comes from the individual then flows into the family.
It was not easy at first to admit we had done such a thing when the light was shown. But worst for us, we had to change it completely as a whole new way of life. It has taken us 20 years of a life of conversion, absolute stripping and spiritual battles one right after the other to be freed from our sins that we have founded and built in this marriage. We built our house on sand, not on Rock or the foundation of Jesus Christ.
The former way had to go and we had to start from the beginning. And that meant to go to the roots of our existence. I was asking questions like this, “God, why did you create me? Who am I?”
In the end and throughout my journey the Lord began to show me just this. Who I am. I am the beloved daughter of the Father, I am the spouse of Jesus Christ, and I am the living vessel of the Holy Spirit, and the little, little girl of the Mother of God…This is who I am from my conception I have lived the experience of seeing myself born out of the Heart of the Father and placed into the womb of my Mother.
Looking back on it all now, there are no words that express the gratitude we have for the generous mercy of God, and why He has permitted us this great grace to come in communion with Him once more.
We deserve hell my friends, I deserve hell. But the Lord wills the salvation of souls. He died for this reason. He wants our souls, and He thirsts for our souls, and agonizes for our souls. He only needs a willing heart to say yes to Him, a willing heart that desires purity and holiness and union with Him.
If you do not believe me that your sins affect your children, you can seek the gospels for your proof, beginning with Adam and Eve, the first parents of the human race.
I know this is hard to swallow, but it is the truth.
God said to Adam ‘the man’ after taking the bite of the forbidden fruit … “where are you?” How could you have let this happen? I gave you a gift, you were supposed to care for it and cultivate what is most precious to me…”
The result of parental sin is passed on to the children, and its been this way from the beginning of man’s existence. Children learn sin first in the home. Children also first learn love and virtue in the home. We have a choice to make and which path to follow. We can follow and choose God, or satan there is no in between.
A very well known priest used to say, “in the end you and I are going to be in heaven or in hell, winners or losers; it is that simple.
I hope eyes and hearts are opening now to the seriousness of this call of the Mother of God who lovingly is correcting her wayward children. And this is only the beginning of the message which will continue in parts.
We are today living the bible and so many choose not to see it.
“Blessed are the pure in heart, they shall see God…” (Mt. 5)
