“Dear children! In the great love of God, I come to you today to lead you on the way of humility and meekness. The first station on that way my children is Confession. Reject your arrogance and kneel down before my Son. Comprehend, my children that you have nothing and you can do nothing. The only thing that is yours and what you possess is sin. Be cleansed and accept meekness and humility. My Son could have won with strength, but He chose meekness, humility and love. Follow my Son and give me your hand so that together we may climb the mountain and win. Thank you!”
This message was given on 7/2/07 to the world. And because it is a 2nd of the month message it is addressed to unbelievers. But as I have said many time, we are all unbelievers in truth, so this message speaks to you and to me.
Very strong language from such a loving Mother. But take this message in just that way. The Mother of God who loves her Son, and who is the perfect image of humility speaks truth. We are a very prideful and arrogant people.
Our Lady begins with telling us that she is here because of God’s great love for us. Hearing this we can refer to the scripture in John 3:16-18. God so loves the world, that He sent His Son, not to condemn the world but to save it. Well it is the same for us now. God so loves the world, and His creation that now He sends His Mother to lead us to her Son to bring it to salvation.
Great is the love of God. Now we can hear this word “great” and down play it and say, well that’s nice, or we can take this word “great” and put a heavenly emphasis on it in a universal aspect and say WOW the LOVE OF GOD IS ENDLESS TO PUT UP WITH PEOPLE LIKE US.
Our Lady wants to lead us on a new path. It is a path toward holiness. There is no room for pride or arrogance as she is calling us on the path to holiness. Very simply put, Our Lady says the first step is to go to confession. Examine your conscience and see where pride and arrogance is operating inside of your heart. It could be in areas of selfishness, success, intellectual pride, spiritual pride (which is the worst of all pride – for one who operates in this state easily condemns another one in sin, and does not see the wooden beam in their own eye). We boast in our acheivements, we boast in the God given gifts we have received, and forget where these gifts come from.
How many of us are confessing the sins against the first commandment? That is idolatry? Do you know that there is no one on this earth that is free from this sin? And it is one of the most greatest abominations against God?
And here is Heaven saying to the world, the people of this world, that is every human being on this earth, that you are arrogant and prideful. Does this put things in perspective my friends? Do we hear the seriousness of the message from heaven now?
The Mother makes is clear…she said “comprehend my children…” (these are those children who say that they are hers); “that you have nothing and you can do nothing. The only thing that is yours and what you possess is sin.” OUCH!
We own nothing on this earth. When we leave this earth everything we have in our possession stays. The only thing you take to eternity with you is SIN. That is what you own my friends. Your sin and its marking on your souls.
We should all be crawling on our knees to the Father begging and pleading for mercy. Not only on ourselves, but for the whole world. We should all be fasting, making reparation for the sins, the sacrileges, for the indifferences where God is so offended by arrogant mankind.
To know who you are in truth before the living God, your Creator who gave you life, and to pretend He does not see or hear what or how we are living day to day in sin, is ignorance and absolute blindness of your existence of a human being. This my friends is pride at its best, for one to say they do not need God, or that there is no God, so that they can go on living habitual sinful lives without conscience. And here we are today with a world that is being sucked into a vortex of vileness and its unable to pull itself out.
Our Lady said, “…follow My Son and give me your hand so that together, we may climb the mountain and win.”
Climb the mountain…those who have been to Medjugorje know the meaning of this true and true. To climb the mountains in Medjugorje is not an easy task, and begrudging to say the least. What Our Lady is saying dear friends, this walk with God is not an easy walk, but it is required. Jesus and His Mother however are here now, to hold our hands, and help us make the climb, especially when the climb gets too steep.
She is with us now today. Now is the time of decision. We do not know how much longer the dear Father will let her remain with us. By the sound of her voice, and the tone of her messages recently, many of us do not think this grace will last much longer, because my friends we are ignoring her and not living her messages as a whole people. Some are, but most are not. Just look around you and you will know that what I say is truth.
Today is the 30th Anniversary of her first apparition in Medjugorje, the Feast of St. John the Baptist whose message was “prepare the way of the Lord, make straight His path…” Prepare for Jesus to come into your heart and root out sin. The Mother of God said, “Do not think dear children that Jesus will come again in the manger. No, that is not correct. He will be born in your hearts.” Now this puts it all in perspective. If our hearts are filled with pride and arrogance there is no room for Jesus who is meek and humble of heart.
Just something to reflect for 30 years with the Queen of Peace. Ave Maria!
“…take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves…” (Mt. 11:29)
