July 1, 2013 Preparing for the Consecration
Even the Church does not understand. I must explain even more deeply the gift of placing Fatima on the lampstand. This, of course, is a decision of the Holy Father but all the bishops and, all the Church with them, must be involved. All must know of this moment and all must prepare in the greatest of faith. Doubts and fears must be cast out. This moment will have great results.
A special day must be chosen and all will agree that this is the perfect choice. Of course, Satan will stir up the forces of nature all across the world. However, this will be a sign.
The physical light of the sun casts out the darkness and the seas will be stilled.
Then, will come the great moment. All the Church will have been praying fasting and expecting.
When the words of consecration are said, the gift will be sealed forever, totally protected because the whole Church has fully participated. How I look forward to that day.
July 2, 2013 The Unperceived Darkness
Darkness covers the whole earth. This darkness is not perceived because it lies in the heart of every person. This unperceived darkness also exists in the structures of human society. It governs the relationship between nations and the relationships between people, especially in the most important place of all, the family.
From this darkness comes every human problem and the inability to finding lasting solutions.
From this darkness comes the multiplication and the complication of these problems. Every problem of mankind flows from this darkness which has now led man on this road of destruction.
No human power can free him. Every human attempt only shares in this human darkness. A new light is needed, a light that has nothing in common with the darkness. When will the pure light of Fatima be released so the darkness can be overcome?
Blessed are those who work for this goal. Woe to those who speak against it.
July 3, 2013 The Heavenly Rain
Fatima is like heavenly rain that will dampen the whole world, extinguishing the fires that now blaze out of control. These are the great fires of anger and hatred that exist between people and cultures, the fires of greed and dishonesty in the hearts of leaders, the fires of passions and deceit in the hearts of individuals. All of these fires will begin to face a new enemy in the heavenly rains of Fatima.
Man cannot put out these fires. He does not even understand them. He is totally helpless in the face of the demonic destruction. However, Satan knows that his fires, no matter how powerful and widespread, are no match for the heavenly rain. That is why he fears so greatly the unleashing of the Fatima gift.
July 4, 2013 The Waves of Fatima
I will continue to speak of the hidden powers of the Fatima gift.
Mankind has suffered from the waves of iniquity which have continually washed upon its shores.
The first wave prepares for the second, which is always more powerful and more extensive. When one wave ceases, the other comes, extending the evil. Is not the shore helpless against the waves? Can the shore say to the ocean, “Send me no more”? Even if some resist the evil, yet another wave, and another, quickly follows, eroding every barrier. Such is the current state of mankind.
I promise you a new ocean, the ocean of Fatima blessings, which will constantly beat upon the shore, removing evil and giving hope, turning back the terrible gains of inequity and restoring religious life. I promise that these waves will not stop. Human efforts to block them will fail. I will gather a people purified in my ocean.
July 5, 2013 The Good Samaritan
Mankind is helpless and wounded. Like the man who fell in among robbers, he lays by the wayside and so many pass him by, until someone stops and bows down to see his plight. At Fatima, I have come down because I saw the state of mankind. Now, the wounds have multiplied and the helplessness spreads everywhere, like a growing infection.
Fatima is my pledge and my promise. I will continually come down. I will come down everywhere, especially when I am asked. I will come down to nations, to families and to all who are in need. I will come down in public manifestations and quietly within people’s hearts. The whole world will experience my care. Whatever the cost, I am ready to pay the innkeeper.
July 6, 2013 Mary’s Requests
What do I ask of you so that these Fatima blessings are received? First, you must believe in me and in all that I have promised. My name must be on your lips and in your heart. You must trust and be filled with confidence that my gifts are all you need for your eternal salvation and your earthly happiness.
Second, you must love one another and forgive what happens each day. You must be concerned that everyone knows and loves me. No one must be left behind.
Finally, you must keep God’s law. At this point, many falter because they fear. I will help you. I ask only a willing heart that tries each day to fulfill God’s will. Fulfill these three requests and the ocean of Fatima will fill your life.
July 8, 2013 To Church Leaders
I raise my voice strongly to Church leaders – bishops, priests, deacons, religious, laity in key positions. You must join me. You cannot sit on the sidelines. Your voices also must be raised. Where your heart is, there also should be your voice.
You must encourage the Holy Father. Let him know that you support him and want him to consecrate Russia to my Immaculate Heart. When he sees your overwhelming support, he will move much more quickly. He, too, will see the urgency and the fruitfulness. He will see that consecrating Russia will unite the Church, not divide it.
This, however, is not enough. Is there not a part of the Church, no matter how small, in which you hold some role of authority? Consecrate that part to my Immaculate Heart. Get your people to make their consecration. I will see their holy desires and I will come. I will make my presence known by signs and my power known by miracles. These graces I pour out upon all who openly profess their devotion to me.
The Gifts in Mary’s Heart (July 9 to July 19, 2013)
July 9, 2013 Advertising the Gifts
I must once again go deep into my heart and bring forth the gifts. They lie there, waiting for you to seek them and open them. I must be like an advertiser who wants you to know all the benefits you will gain from his products so you are attracted and convinced. I will do the same.
Often I say, “Come into my heart and discover all the gifts that I have for you”. I must do more. I must describe each gift, show how easily you can gain it and all the blessings you will experience.
My heart holds gifts for everyone in the world. In my heart, all find the gifts meant for them. No one goes away disappointed. All the gifts are free, already paid for by the death of my Son, Jesus. Let us begin.
July 10, 2013 Lifting Anxiety and Burdens
First, I speak about peace because there is no peace in the world or peace in the human heart.
O reader, your heart is filled with anxieties of every kind. You do all you can to free yourself but you only get more entangled. When you enter my Immaculate Heart, you must always leave your anxieties there. You must give me your burdens. I want them. For you, they are heavy weights. For me, they are like the tiniest feathers which I easily lift up. For you, they are great difficulties. For me, they are great joys, the joy of a mother who frees her children.
When you enter my heart, be sure to bring all your burdens. As you mention them, you will recall others and you will see all the harm they are doing to you. That is only the first step. You must leave your burdens with me. They are your gifts to me.
When your prayer is over and you leave my heart to return to your tasks, I will be disappointed if you take any of these anxieties with you. If you do, then return again and again to my heart until they are all left behind. My peace will flood you and you will give me thanks.
July 11, 2013 A Mother’s Voice
In my heart, O reader, you can hear the voice of divine knowledge. I always said “yes” to God’s will and with each yes, greater divine light was given to me. I understood all the aspects of God’s plan. I easily distinguished light from darkness and true light from false lights. As you enter my heart, you will hear my voice, a mother’s voice that will save you.
In the world, and even in your own heart, you hear false and destructive voices which lead you into darkness. You have listened for so long to these voices, that your whole life has become clouded in darkness. You ask, “Where is the light? Where have I gone wrong? How can I gain again what I had?” In my heart you will hear my voice. Enter my heart. Hear my voice. Do this always, every day and every hour. I will lead you back to the light and you will tell others.
July 12, 2013 The Burning Divine Fire
In my heart, you will find a burning divine fire that will melt you. O reader, your own heart is wounded and isolated, sometimes even broken by the burdens and strife. You seek relief in so many ways, some of them sinful. All of these unresolved conflicts multiply. They remain within you and become infected.
Where is your relief? I reveal this burning fire and invite you to enter. Do not be afraid. It is a fire containing every blessing. Each time you come, the fire will purify you, free you, cast out your burdens, remove the anger and give you light.
In strife and contentions, you often ask, “How do I respond?” Enter the divine fire and you will make the perfect response. Oh, how many gifts in my heart and how few know about them!
July 13, 2013 The Three Gifts of Light
My heart is filled with every light. Whoever enters is immediately touched by that light.
First, they see how many times they have acted in darkness. They understand the foolishness of their decisions. They have been like Esau.
They have sold their baptismal inheritance for a bowl of soup. They repent of their sins and seek pardon.
As they enter more deeply, my light penetrates their being. They see their selfishness in relationships and their poor choices. They have fished all night in the darkness and have caught nothing of value. My light reveals what to do so their lives have true value.
Now, I come to the greatest gift. In my light, they will see my Son, Jesus, and the great love he has for them. They will come to know him and the power of his resurrection. Anyone who abides in my light will become a new person, putting away the deeds and feelings of darkness.
July 14, 2013 The Gift of Truth
As you enter my heart you will encounter the Holy Spirit of truth. This light should fill your soul and all your thoughts and decisions. Truth is a mantle with which I cover and protect my special ones. They live only in the truth of God’s word and commandments.
They do not call evil good, nor do they pretend that they can do whatever they wish. They know that God is truth and that his laws are sacred. They listen to the Church, as an authentic voice of truth, guided infallibly by the Holy Spirit. They rejoice in the truth and want to know all that is revealed by God.
They do not avoid the light of truth nor put it under a bushel basket. They do not live in the darkness nor in the evil that grows in darkness. They hate lies because Satan is the Father of lies. When the light comes, they abide in it, grateful for its blessings and wanting no other gift. They are my true and faithful children whom I will never, never let go.
July 15, 2013 The Emptiness of the Tomb
Finally, I come to the greatest gift in my heart, pure love for God and for others. This love is a divine fire that the heavenly Father placed in my heart at the first moment of my conception. As I accepted this fire with a total “yes”, it continually descended from the bosom of the Trinity.
Then, the Holy Spirit overshadowed me and the Word became flesh within. For nine months, the Word fed this divine fire. When I gave birth, I saw the face of Jesus for the first time. All of my motherly affections were touched by this divine fire.
As I watched Jesus grow, this fire grew also. When I sacrificed him upon the cross, only the divine fire could fill my emptiness. The full emptiness came with his burial, as the stone was rolled in front of the tomb. No one on earth nor even the angels in heaven could understand that darkness. Only the divine fire sustained me. This is the beginning teaching on this heavenly fire.
July 16, 2013 The Fire of Love
On Saturday, I was in the deepest darkness. Only by faith could I cling to my God, who was preparing me to be the repository of the divine fire of love.
As soon as my Son rose from the dead, I knew that the whole world had changed. The cosmos was purified. The powers of darkness received a mortal wound and the divine life of grace was now available to all. Such is the great mystery that I held in my heart and which I now reveal.
All the divine love, needed by every person in the world was placed in my heart. Why was I given the power of the resurrection? Why did my heart receive the divine fire? Because Satan could never destroy that fire but he could cover it over by his darkness. That is what he has done. Modern man walks in Satanic darkness because he cannot find the fire of the resurrection.
Only when my Immaculate Heart is exalted according to the Father’s divine plan will Satan’s cover be removed and all the world will see clearly to enter this fire of love.
When Jesus appeared to me it was not just for a short time as he did to the disciples. He remained with me with his permanent risen presence. I was continually taken up in the resurrection glory. Later, when he ascended to heaven, my spirit joined him in the glory of the Trinity. All that was lacking was my bodily assumption which would happen in a few years.
In the meantime, I would be with the disciples, explaining to them the full power and glory of the resurrection. This is my task to the present day, the one that absorbs me in the great time of darkness. Satan is trying to obscure, to cover over, to hide the glory of Jesus’ resurrection. He does not want my Immaculate Heart to be exalted because Jesus has prepared my heart for this very moment of human history. Oh, when will this happen? When will Russia be consecrated to my Immaculate Heart? Until that moment, the darkness will increase.
July 18, 2013 The Mystery Revealed
Just as God revealed to St. Paul the mystery that the Gentiles were co-heirs with the Jews to the riches of Christ, so I now reveal this great mystery that the full power and glory of Jesus’ resurrection can be found in my Immaculate Heart.
Why has this mystery been kept hidden? Why is it now being revealed? In the Ages of Faith, all accepted Jesus. The power and glory of his resurrection was seen by all. Now, Satan has been covering over these lights. The world lives in a new darkness, never present since the gospel was preached to the whole world.
The heavenly Father decreed this mystery from the beginning, when he promised that a woman would bring forth a Son (Gen.3:15). Now he has now decided to reveal this to the whole world.
I am using these little locutions (themselves so hidden) to explain this mystery.
O reader, you need not wait. To you, the mystery is revealed. You believe. I invite you to enter my heart and find there the glory of Jesus’ resurrection.
July 19, 2013 Decades of Darkness
I have poured out the desires of my heart but I have not been able to pour forth the divine fire that abides in my heart. How I suffer from these flames that should have already been released upon the world. How much different the human history of the 20th century would have been if only my requests at Fatima had been heeded.
I made so many promises but few believed me or fulfilled what I asked. Now, I plead again, through these little locutions, so hidden yet so clear. These words reveal my longings.
For all these decades, I have watched the human race become entangled in darkness, violence, wars, addictions and sufferings. Even worse, I have seen millions of souls lost forever in the eternal flames of hell. This is the vision I gave to the three children.
Now I make this final plea. Yes, it is final. The time is so very short. The catastrophes are at hand, yet still able to be avoided. That is why I plead with such urgency. Holy Father, consecrate Russia to my Immaculate Heart so the great mystery can be released. O reader, you must enter immediately. So little time is left.
Explaining Supernatural Mysteries (July 20 to July 31, 2013)
July 20, 2013 The World-wide Suffering
I turn now to all the suffering in the world. Has not the heavenly Father provided all the resources needed for human life? Then, why are so many starving and living in such ungodly circumstances? This is because the human heart has constructed twisted economic systems, because world leaders protect their own political interests, offering solutions that have never answered the real problems.
This is the suffering of a mother’s heart, the daily, constant, seemingly impossible burden of a human race immersed in suffering because the blessings intended by the heavenly Father never reach them.
New river must flow, the heavenly waters of divine help stored in my Immaculate Heart. The whole world will change when my Immaculate Heart is exalted upon the lampstand.
July 21, 2013 The Powerful River and Waterfall
I see a river, a mighty river. At the end of this mighty river is a waterfall, after which there is no hope of survival. I see the human race, hurrying along to its goals, fully intent on what the human heart cherishes for itself.
I see Satan using every possible deception, knowing that he can lead all mankind to the waterfall. How well he has succeeded, always hiding from mankind his plans for the world’s destruction.
This is the sorrow of my heart which cannot be assuaged. So many do not know how to be saved from this destruction. What can I do? Will it not demand an extraordinary intervention?
Even though some will not be saved, I must do all I can.
O reader, listen to my words. Your mother is trying to save you. The time is short. The river that pulls you is powerful. Do not waste a minute. Listen to my call within your heart right now.
July 22, 2013 The Road of Deception
Mankind’s heart can be deceived because he does not glorify God. He chooses other gods, false gods that he creates. As the decades and the centuries go on, he completely loses his way and totally forgets that he was created to glorify God. Glorifying God would protect his heart and he would not be led astray.
After all these centuries of having the true God replaced by the god of reason, mankind is totally lost, entrapped on a road of total deception. He is the easy victim of the Evil One, and he will fall more and more prey to his deceptions.
What is the answer? The Spirit of Jesus must be poured forth. This Spirit must cover the whole world, offering to every human being the true light. The whole world must be invited again, by a unique outpouring of the Spirit, to glorify God and to leave behind this road of deceptions.
July 23, 2013 The Demonic Fires
Because the demonic fire pours out everywhere, I want everyone to recognize it. Where the demonic fire exists, suffering is inflicted by man against man. The demonic fire exists where there are wars, violence and uprisings; when the peace of a social order is suddenly in shreds; when weapons are multiplied and arms sales increase; when money is spent that really does not exist; when countries, rich and poor, amass gigantic debts; when the rights of people are trampled upon; when people must live in squalor; when drugs are bought and sold; when corruption fills public life; when lies are told to cover up the truth; when lust controls people’s hearts and when the Church’s teachings are set aside.
The list is really too short, not at all describing the full effects of the demonic fire. Truly, the demonic fires pour forth everywhere. Yet, the fires in my heart are still not released. No wonder mankind rushes headlong into these destructive fires. No antidote is present. When will the day come when all the world will know and love the fires in my heart?
I want to explain the great mysteries of suffering and death. The heavenly Father so loved the first human persons he created that he gave them special gifts, called preternatural. By these powers, they could not suffer or die.
Satan was filled with jealousy and rage because lowly human persons enjoyed these special divine protections. He conceived his plan to bring those first persons away from their very special condition and to bring them into his seduction, filled with sufferings.
As these human persons, deceived by Satan’s lies, followed his promptings, they, too, were plunged into his sufferings. These preternatural gifts were lost. This is now the permanent state of the human race. Every person born into the world is subjected to Satan’s sufferings and to death. I will speak now of my own Son’s sufferings and death.
During his lifetime, Jesus frequently destroyed human sufferings by his healing actions. For some people, he even reversed the power of death. However, all of these were just partial victories. Satan’s kingdom was still safe in the center of his stronghold.
Jesus’ final and complete victory began in the Garden of Gethsemane. There, he asked his heavenly Father if it were possible to avoid the Way of the Cross. The Father explained that Jesus had to reach the very stronghold of Satan. Every king, (even Satan) protects his stronghold with guards and gates. As Jesus accepted this task from the Father, namely to invade Satan’s central stronghold and engage him in combat, his suffering began. The soldiers, led by Judas, came to arrest him.
Getting to the Stronghold
The scourging, the crowning of thorns, the various trials before the Sanhedrin and Pilate, and even the way of the cross were just the preliminary obstacles that Jesus had to go through to reach the central stronghold.
Only as he was lifted up on the cross, did the mortal combat begin. I was there, not merely as a witness, but to engage in the battle with Jesus. That is why I am the co-redemptrix of the human race.
How great was that battle – back and forth. One part would be conquered and then a greater Satanic response would be released. Jesus’ sufferings continued to escalate as he entered deeper and deeper into the Satanic stronghold. By his fidelity and my cooperation, we finally reached the center of Satan’s kingdom.
Standing Before Satan’s Throne
We were together, our hearts locked together by the greatest human and divine love that has ever existed. Satan did not just confront his Creator but a creature, whom he so much despised.
He was surprised that we had penetrated into his great secrecy. He saw his own folly in stirring up the Jewish leaders and in leading Pilate to condemn Jesus. He, by his foolishness, had allowed us to arrive for this mortal combat.
Satan’s Futile Attempt
Totally dedicated to evil, he again used his great deceptions. He even repeated the temptations in the desert, offering Jesus once more all the kingdoms of the earth. Over these temptations, Jesus had already won his victories. He offered to lessen my sufferings and to make my way easy and light, but I rejected his false offers. I would always be the suffering Mother to bring forth my children.
His Final Tactic
Then came the final moment, the ultimate struggle, evidenced by Jesus’ words, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” In his cleverness, he covered over the light that Jesus had always enjoyed. From the first moment of his conception, Jesus knew that he was the Beloved Son of God. Frequently, as at his Baptism and Transfiguration, the Father had assured Jesus of these special prerogatives. Even in the garden, Jesus knew that he was the Beloved Son.
Now, that light was covered over. The Father did not hide himself but Satan, by his great intellect, saw how to cover over the Father’s face.
The Victory of Mutual Love
This was darkness, for both Jesus and myself. We had only each other. The darkness was complete and total. Our love for each other was the only light that we enjoyed and we remained embraced in our mutual love until the end. At the end, there seemed to be no faith, nor even hope. Especially, there seemed to be not even love for the Father. All that we knew is that we loved one another. Together, we redeemed the human race. Jesus and I destroyed Satan in the very heart of his stronghold. His kingdom was divided and would not stand.
Today, he still roams the earth looking for those whom he would devour. However, he knows that his days are numbered and that, at the end of time, he will be cast forever into hell, never to have access to the saints. His kingdom is condemned forever.
I needed to teach this all at once. There is much more to say.
July 25, 2013 Avoiding Chastisements
There is a question. “If Jesus and I won the mortal combat on Calvary and destroyed the stronghold of Satan so that his kingdom is divided and he will be cast into hall forever, then why did this not happen immediately? Why does he still roam about the world seeking the ruin of souls?”
Remember the owner of the field who planted good seed but the devil planted weeds. When both came up, his servants wanted to remove the weeds. However, the wise owner said, “Let both grow together, lest in pulling out the weeds, you might destroy the wheat. At harvest time, we will separate the weeds and the wheat”.
Human life is meant to be a time of separation from Satan through the vows taken at Baptism.
The people are asked, “Do you renounce Satan, and all his attractions, and all his works?”
After everyone answers “yes”, the kingdom of God claims the person by Baptism. Yet, how many live out these vows? Instead of renouncing Satan, they seek him out. They cling to him by their daily choices. Instead of separating themselves and entering fully into the kingdom, they are caught up in the world’s darkness and they walk his paths.
For the heavenly Father to suddenly and forcibly attempt to remove Satan’s hold upon the human race would cause what is called a “chastisement”. That is what I am trying to avoid chastisements by these messages.
July 26, 2013 Why Chastisements are Possible
Satan’s hand is everywhere. He corrupts the human heart. He darkens man’s intellect. He leads astray, incites violence, provides weapons, places the most clever lies on people’s lips. He incites to anger, attracts to lust and to the sordid gains of greed. He enters every aspect of human life, gains a foothold and never leaves.
Man, having no idea of his foe and no concept that he is entrapped by a superior intellect, rejects God’s help, sets aside God’s law and turns away from God’s path.
However, the heavenly Father will not let go if his creation. He made that decision centuries ago when he made a covenant with Noah, and later, with Abraham. The Father has two ways to reclaim his creation, the road of faith or the road of chastisements. I constantly visit my children and give these messages so that the human race is converted, chooses the road of faith and avoids the road of divine chastisements.
July 27, 2013 Holding Us Close
When the weather is clear, a mother allows her little children to wander and be free. When the clouds gather, she draws them closer. When the great storms lash the house, she holds them close to herself.
From all these messages and from all the world’s events, everyone should see that the clouds are gathering and the great storms are on the horizon. So, I begin to gather my children. I cannot allow them to wander, even though I would want them to be free.
This gift of drawing them to myself has already begun. With all of apparitions and messages, I am releasing a powerful force that attracts everyone to my side. This is your only safety in the great storms that lie ahead.
Interpret events correctly. When you suffer disappointment, when doors close to you and opportunities are denied, even when friendships are broken or good times that you enjoyed happen no more, see these as moments when your freedom is limited so I can draw you closer to myself.
July 28, 2013 Changing the World Into A Middle East
I see the clouds gathering on the horizon. I know their strength and the extent of their powers. They are fierce and want to spread their darkness of destruction everywhere. So, I am trying to gather all my children, drawing them closer to myself more than ever before.
Some parts of the world have already experienced these storms of violence. Human life is disrupted. Many are killed and wounded. Society is ripped apart. Many lose faith. Others cling to their beliefs but are isolated, unable to gather any more in their churches.
Look at the Middle East! That is the picture of life when the storm clouds release their rain of destruction. You say, ‘It cannot happen here”. Does not Satan have his eye on you? Is he not plotting, even now, how to change the whole world into a Middle East? Only one wall will protect you, the wall of my Immaculate Heart. How I want the whole world to seek its protection!
July 29, 2013 Knocking On Every Door
No one will turn me away from my task. Because I see the storm clouds gathering, I will search even more for all my children. I will appear to visionaries and give locutions. I will go to every heart. I will knock on every door. When you see this multiplication of my appearances and of my messages, do not discount them. They are a sign to you.
I will bring about a new wind of the Holy Spirit. He will breathe afresh on mankind. He will pour out his divine fire. He is my spouse, always accompanying me and blessing my efforts.
Not much time remains. When I visit you, do not delay. When I call you, do not put off my invitation. You do not see what lies ahead and you need desperately what I offer.
July 30, 2013 The Hidden Doors
My words flow easily because I see the situation so clearly. My children are being surrounded on all sides, so that they cannot escape the evil that awaits the human race.
However, I see doors that can help every one of my children. These doors are hidden and not easy to find. However, if they develop a close friendship with me, I will lead them in the great times of distress that lie ahead.
The time is so urgent. Increase your friendship with me. Say the rosary, the chain that links you to me. Never allow that chain to be broken. Always strengthen it and in the times of chastisements, you will not be lost. Your heavenly mother speaks so clearly.
July 31, 2013 Do Not Wait
God does not condemn anyone who turns to him in sincerity of heart. I repeat, no one is turned away. All are welcome. The only condition is to turn away from sin and accept the Holy Spirit of Jesus. Many do not hear that message. Others hear, but do not listen. Only a few listen, repent and come to me.
Although my voice goes forth in so many ways, people do not see the seriousness of these messages. I must do more. I must add signs that awaken people from their sleep of death and I must add wonders that breathe hope into their hearts. Then, many will come and be saved from the future destruction that Satan has planned. Do not wait. When the destruction begin, it will be too late.
The Heavenly Realm (August 1 to August 9, 2013)
August 1, 2013 Jesus’ Kingdom
I see Satan’s kingdom with all of its evil plans and powers of destruction. However, I also see the beautiful kingdom that Jesus preached. Through Jesus, this kingdom has come upon the earth. However each person must believe in Jesus and be baptized, so the kingdom can come in its fullness. This is what I will describe in these coming days. Let us begin.
Originally, the kingdom of God was firmly established and mankind enjoyed a close friendship with God that no one on earth can even imagine. However mankind freely chose to turn away from God. (Such was the powerful deceit of the Evil One.) However, God had the final word promising that Jesus would be sent. Speaking to Satan, God said, “I will put an enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers.” (Gen.3:15)
I will be describing this heavenly realm which Jesus has brought to earth.
August 2, 2013 Clothed With Divine Life
So much to pour out of my heart! I rejoice to speak out. The kingdom of Jesus begins by clothing the soul in divine grace, the life of the Trinity. The soul is snatched away from Satan’s grasp, transferred from the kingdom of darkness and into Jesus’ kingdom of light.
The soul becomes a new creation, filled with supernatural powers. The soul becomes a child of God and an heir with Jesus, its brother. Such is the glory and dignity conferred as the soul is clothed with divine grace. This begins my explanation of heavenly life, a gift which Jesus restored to the human race.
August 3, 2013 Life Within Jesus
This divine life is the same life that I received at the moment of my Immaculate Conception.
The person becomes a child of the Trinity and enjoys the life of the Father, Son and Spirit.
This life flowed within Jesus and is given to all who believe in him and are baptized.
I see everyone in the world. Some have this divine life and others do not. I sorrow over every human suffering, large or small, but I sorrow the most over those who do not have this divine life.
Jesus always told people to seek true life and to be rich in heavenly things. He was speaking about this divine life that I will explain each day.
August 4, 2013 A Community Filled With Divine Life
Reader, I must first explain the state of the human race and how you can gain the divine life.
The heavenly Father so loved these newly created human persons that he clothed them in divine life and they enjoyed a friendship with him. However, they were deceived by the Prince of Darkness and made the horrible mistake of disobeying God and forfeiting this divine life. They and all their children were led into the darkness where mankind still abides. This is the first truth. Mankind is born into darkness.
However, the Father sent Jesus, the light of the world, to save mankind from this death and darkness. By my Immaculate Conception, I was the first to be rescued. As Jesus preached and gathered disciples, others came into the light. The divine gift was sealed by Jesus appearing after his death and resurrection to those whom he had chosen beforehand. When these disciples received the Holy Spirit, Jesus’ community, filled with divine life, was ready to share that life with the whole world. This was the beginning gift of the Father.
August 5, 2013 Believe, Repent and Be Baptized
This little community filled with divine life and knew exactly what to do. Jesus had instructed them to preach to the whole world and to make disciples of the nations. These disciples told the whole world about Jesus’ death and resurrection and of his promise of eternal life to all who believe in his power and his name. They invited all who believed their preaching to be baptized.
In this way, divine life went out from this little community to the whole world, just as it does today. I am the world’s preacher and I invite you, if you have not been baptized, to believe in Jesus, to repent of your sins, and to be baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. In this way, the divine life of Jesus will make you a new creation.
August 6, 2013 A Child of God
When the Holy Spirit of Jesus enters by Baptism, the soul becomes a new creation and a child of God. They are filled with divine powers and many potentialities that are released by the other sacraments. All is contained in the baptismal gift, even their specific call to serve the Church and the world. So much to explain in the coming days! Where will I begin?
I will start with the soul becoming a child of God. Jesus alone enjoys this power to make you a child of God. John writes “But to those who did accept him, he gave power to become children of God to those who believe in his name” (1:12). The human family was divided, cast into darkness and burdened with sin. Jesus formed a new family and Baptism is the birth into this family. All the angels and saints are also members of this family. They help the soul to reach heaven.
However, every child of God must freely choose to remain in the Father’s house. Everyone is free, like the Prodigal Son, to take their inheritance and to leave. My heart sorrows because so many have made that choice. How I want them to repent and to say, “I will return to my Father’s house”. I search for these souls. I even allow them to experience hardships so they understand the blessings they used to enjoy.
So much to explain. The gifts of the heavenly realm are infinite.
August 7, 2013 The Seed of Faith
Just as the newly born infant has many powers that will increase as he grows up, so this divine life contains powers that are meant to grow. These powers are like seeds planted in the soul. Unfortunately, the ground might not receive this seed fully and there is no harvest. I will explain what happens when the divine life is fully welcomed. I will begin with the power of faith.
Faith opens the door to the heavenly realm and the soul experiences a new life. When a child becomes an adolescent, they experience a new world of human relationships. By faith, the soul sees the great possibilities of a life with the Father. It realizes the great love of Jesus who gained these heavenly riches by his death. The soul sees that I am its heavenly mother.
All is new. Another world and new possibilities come into sight. Suddenly, the soul begins to hope.
August 8, 2013 Heaven Can Be Mine
As faith opens the heavenly doors the soul begins to realize, “All of this can be mine. I can live forever. I can be perfectly happy.” Joy fills them and they are ready to sell all they have to gain Jesus’ kingdom.
Contained in this hope is a purpose that will never disappoint them and a goal which they know is not an illusion because it is based upon the promises of God himself. Filled with faith and surrounded by divine hope, they realize that the Father is inviting them to make a decision.
By faith, the door is open. By hope, the person sees the Father’s heavenly gifts. However, only by love can the soul embrace the kingdom. This is the divine question. Will they love God above all things and open their lives to his intrusions?
August 9, 2013 Being United By Love
Faith and hope are divine powers that lift the soul, like a rocket, far into the mysteries of the heavenly realm. The soul arrives into the presence of God and is overwhelmed by these inner powers that constantly push the soul deeper and deeper into God’s life.
Suddenly, another power emerges that was hidden until now. The soul experiences an invitation, as God himself speaks “Do you want to be one with me, bonded together forever?” How is this possible? Yet, the soul experiences supernatural charity, an urge to surrender to divine love.
The soul also sees the cost of this surrender. All that is self will be burned away. Only God’s life of Baptism will remain. (Some walk away sad, like the rich young man.) At this moment, I stand with the soul who sees that I fully accepted divine love. I help the soul to accept this baptismal power of faith, hope and love. With that surrender, the divine life contained in the baptismal seed can break out of its protective shell.
The Heavenly Mysteries (August 10 to August 21, 2013)
August 10, 2013 God’s Call
Invited to be one with God, the soul allows infused charity to plunge it into the very center of God’s mysteries where all becomes clear. The soul realizes, “God created me. I came from his hands. He gave me a name and placed me in the middle of his people. He gave me a task, with only so much time to accomplish it. He gave me Mary as my mother, and the angels and saints as my companions”.
The mysteries continue to unfold. “He gave me my parents and my family. I was born in a definite place and time, the perfect circumstances, the culture in which I will spread his kingdom”. In this way, God’s call contained in the divine life is released. Happy the soul who hears God’s voice and believes and acts.
August 11, 2013 The Battle Within
Divine life transfers the soul from the Kingdom of Darkness into Jesus’ Kingdom of Light.
However, because every soul retains remnants and vestiges of darkness it perceives a war going on within. Two powers battle for the soul. A wise soul realizes both the pull of darkness (back to its previous selfish state) and the power of this new divine life that wants to establish the soul forever into the kingdom of light.
Many souls have no idea of this daily struggle. They have little interest in the divine life of their Baptism and as a result, the original victory is surrendered. The soul forsakes the light and lives in darkness.
O soul, let me awaken you to the great powers of divine life already infused into you. These powers will propel you into the heart of Jesus and will help you to live as he lived. Let these powers be released. I will give you the secret – consecrate yourself to my Immaculate Heart and the powers of the Spirit will flow freely.
August 12, 2013 Confirmation
This divine life within the soul contains every power which the soul needs to become holy and united with God forever. Because this life always strives for growth and completeness, the heavenly Father has provided special, external helps, called sacraments, that serve this divine life and bring it to its fullness.
Confirmation is the sacrament of Christian adulthood. A child experiences two lives. The first is lived in the context of the family, the years of growing up. The second occurs as the child grows and leaves the parent’s home for a life in the world.
Within the family, all is provided and the child lives dependently. A time comes for the child to shed this dependency and to forge his own way. Obviously, he must develop different skills and he needs much greater understanding.
This is an example of the graces given at Confirmation, which equips the soul to find its way and to cope with the problems presented by adulthood.
August 13, 2013 Confession and the Earthly Battlefield
Although filled with divine life, the soul remains all during its earthly life on the battlefield between good and evil. In the midst of this daily battle, the soul might sustain some wounds. We call these venial sins. At times, in the great darkness of the battle, the divine life might even be struck a mortal blow (called mortal sin).
Jesus has foreseen these moments of wounds and even possible spiritual death. He has provided two gifts, one interior and the other exterior. The baptized soul has been permanently changed. Even in spiritual death, it retains the capacity to be restored to life. The powers of Baptism can be stirred again into the flame of life.
Second, Jesus has provided the sacrament of confession and has given the Church (who baptized the soul) the power to heal the wounds of venial sin and to raise to life any soul that has died by mortal sin. Tomorrow, I will explain this sacrament in great detail.
August 14, 2013 Sacrament of Confession
Baptism cleanses the soul and pours out a divine life that is spotless. However, this life is received by a human person who will be subjected to many temptations. The years are long and the battles are great. The soul needs help. Can they not be baptized again? Does not this divine life carry within itself the power to constantly respond to divine forgiveness?
My son, Jesus, has prepared everything. He has foreseen these struggles and even sins committed after Baptism. When he told his apostles, “ Receive the Holy Spirit, whose sins you forgive, shall be forgiven”, he foresaw every soul who would need the second Baptism of confession. He foresaw. He made provision. He established another sacrament. He gave this power to his Church.
O Reader, take advantage of this sacrament. Do not put it aside. It contains special powers of restoring and cleansing your divine life. Go to confession. I will wait for you there.
August 15, 2013 Holy Communion
Who can speak fully of this mystery? Even my own lips cannot find words to adequately praise this divine gift. The mystery began when the Holy Spirit overshadowed me and formed the humanity of Jesus from my body and blood.
During his ministry, Jesus promised to give his body and blood as food and drink even saying, “Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life and I will raise him on the last day” (Jn.6:54). Many did not believe and they walked away.
Finally, on the night that Judas betrayed him, Jesus said to his disciples, “Take and eat. This is my Body. Take and drink, this is the cup of my blood. Do this in remembrance of me”.
What happened that night at an unknown table in Jerusalem, is now celebrated every day on thousands of altars in every part of the world. Holy souls are nourished. Weak souls are strengthened. Sinful souls are invited to repent so they, too, can receive. All are invited.
How can I describe this mystery? Tomorrow, I will speak of my own First Communion.
August 16, 2013 Mary’s First Communion
After Pentecost, I gathered, just like the other believers, to celebrate the mystery of the Eucharist and to receive Holy Communion. I will try to explain my inner feelings and all that happened to me.
First, I was filled with the greatest expectation. I had given Jesus his body and blood. Now, I was to receive it. Jesus would again live within me (how familiar this would be to him). His Body and Blood, of course, had been changed. He had lived his life of obedience. He had died and had risen into glory and his body had ascended into its place within the Trinity (where all the just will join him).
When Jesus came to me in Communion, he stirred up all my human memories. When devout souls communicate, they try to recall the stories of Jesus, imagining some event in the gospels. For myself, my own heart overflows with maternal memories. I pondered Jesus’ every word and deed. At Communion, all of these were stirred. I relived every event. All the mysteries came alive.
At this First Communion, I was immersed again in my entire life with Jesus. Together, we relived all the memories. They were, in a sense, more real than when they happened because Jesus was not outside of me but within. What a union we enjoyed and what emotions filled my heart. I possessed the One who had created me and the one to whom I gave his Body and Blood.
August 17, 2013 Mary and Communion
He to whom I had given birth, whom I accompanied to the cross and had experienced in the glory of the resurrection, had now returned to me through this mystery of Holy Communion. During pregnancy, a mother enjoys a relationship with the child of her womb. She imagines what it will be like to hold the child, to feed the child and to watch the child grow.
When Jesus returned and I once more held him in my heart, my relationship to him was not imaginary. Together we had redeemed the world. Every soul was in our hearts. O Reader, on the day of my First Holy Communion, you were there. We spoke of you . We thought of you. We planned for you all that we would do. We even thought of these words that I would speak to you. Listen closely to me now. “Holy Communion contains every blessing of God. In that mystery, Jesus and I come to you and offer you every gift. In Holy Communion, I enter your heart with Jesus. Desire this bread come down from heaven and receive it as often as possible. With Jesus, I will come.”
August 18, 2013 Holy Orders
How I loved the little community with whom I gathered regularly to receive Communion. The apostles assumed their active role. They would preach about Jesus and then point me out as “the mother of Jesus”. That is how the Beloved Disciple always wrote of me, “The mother of Jesus was there”. Also, the believers would ask me about Jesus and I would share little stories so they could more easily love him.
The community continued to grow, causing an obvious need of expansion of ministry. The twelve handled this crisis so well, laying hands upon seven men chosen by the community. This became a regular pattern as new growth and new needs happened. The apostles would lay hands so that each new community had the Eucharist. How important is the Eucharist and how necessary is the priesthood that consecrates the holy species.
August 19, 2013 Permanent Marriages
Gathering with the community of believers, I could see the new powers of the divine life which they received at their Baptism. The men had a much greater respect for the women. Women were seen as equals, for in Jesus there was no Greek and Jew. All were believers, sharing the divine life.
A great purity of life came upon the believers and they began to live out the ideals of marriage that, formerly, had seemed impossible. Jesus taught a higher morality. There was to be no divorce. Among the believers in this time of intense devotion, the men answered this call. Marriage became a permanent commitment. These enduring marriages were a sign to all of the great powers given by the Holy Spirit. A new culture began, that transformed history. Such is the great power of the baptismal life.
August 20, 2013 Prayer for the Dying
A special moment came when a believer died. For some, this was the great victory of martyrdom.
Their names were venerated and their stories recorded by the community. Others died a natural death. In every case, great joy filled the community because Jesus had destroyed the veil that had hidden life after death.
Devout Jews had debated the question of the existence of life after death. Even those who believed were not sure what that life would be like. Jesus, by his rising, cast great light on this darkness. We rejoiced that these deaths took place after the resurrection because we knew that Baptism had conferred the divine life lost by sin.
Now, I come to my point. Whenever a believer was dying, we gathered for prayers. The apostles (or a leader of the community) laid hands in faith that in Jesus’ name healing and full forgiveness would be given. These acts strengthened the dying. Many got well. Others received the great peace of full reconciliation. After death, we cared faithfully for the body that had been a temple of the Holy Spirit. This was the faith and practice of the Early Community.
August 21, 2013 Early Missionaries
The little community of believers knew exactly what to do. They went to every town and village, preaching the good news that Jesus had died and risen. They wanted people to repent and to believe. They baptized the believers, bestowing this powerful divine life that I have just described. They trusted this divine life, the Holy Spirit himself, to transform the new believer. They knew all the helps that Jesus had provided to foster this divine life.
My Church must go back and learn the secrets of the Early Church. They must learn to release the powers of Baptism which are often tied up because of ignorance and lack of faith.
The divine life within the person, and nothing else, can transform the soul so it lives as Jesus lived. Every other approach is doomed to failure. The secret lies in the presence and power of the Holy Spirit in each believer.
(Special Locution – The Fires of Syria
Aug23 - Sept6
1. Introduction Special Locution – The Fires of Syria
Introduction Our Lord and Our Lady have begun to speak again about the Middle East unrest. I believe that these words need to be published immediately. Monsignor Esseff
I must speak clearly and quickly. The situation is more than urgent. The fires of Syria will spill over. They can no longer be contained. The leader is too determined. He will never surrender or agree to any compromise, even if he is surrounded by his enemies. Also, he has at his disposal great weapons that he has both stored up and that he constantly receives from outside. Third, his opposition is not a united force. They come from various groups with quite differing goals. Their hearts are not one, nor do all seek the same solution.
Syria’s leadership remains in power even though many thought that he would topple like the other leaders. He has deepened his foundation and drawn around him those who will be faithful, even if just for fear of their own lives. This is the situation today. What will tomorrow bring? That is why I speak.
Many see Syria as a contained threat. They lament that there was no concerted action taken in the beginning. However, I am not speaking about the past. It is the future that holds the greatest fire. The destruction in Syria will spill over and will begin to go beyond its borders. The fires will feed on other lands and other peoples. Again, because of the confusion among world leaders, it will become too late to respond. More people will be sacrificed to this demonic evil.
Even this phase will not be the end, but only a preparation for destruction in that area that no one can imagine. This new destruction will not come immediately but will inevitably happen.
President Obama is both confused and criticized. This is dangerous. If he acts precipitously to overcome the criticism, he will cause greater destruction to occur.
2. Syria – The Precursor
Special Locution – The Fires of Syria
What will I say about Syria? The events have begun and will lead to other more destructive events and., then, to even more destruction. The fuse has been lit and is now burning. Syria is not the place of the great future explosion or of the greatest destruction, but Syria is the precursor of these events. Syria, even with all of its turmoil does not possess the great weapons or the destructive powers possessed by other nations.
However, its role as precursor should alert everyone that the time before wide scale destruction is very short – far closer than anyone expects. Other leaders see that Syria has survived by using weapons that all the world has banned. In this sense, he is the precursor of later events.
Israel knows that it is alone and cannot firmly count on anyone. It also knows the precarious state of its own survival. It must plot its own course and its own actions. It cannot wait or hold back. It knows that it will suffer attacks and looks only to minimize the destruction.
America, oh America, you were to be the source of world peace but you have been so weakened. You have gone astray. You have neither the might nor the will to fulfill the tasks I had in store for you
3. Importance of Jordan
Special Locution – The Fires of Syria
I hold Israel at the center of my heart. I was born in Israel and the great events of the world’s redemption took place there.
The ring of protection around Israel is being stripped away and replaced by enemies. Israel’s most important protection is Jordan. I want you to pray for the stability of Jordan. The longer that Jordan remains stable, the safer is Israel and the more the demonic timetable is pushed back.
If Jordan remains stable, Israel will be able to plan its own defense because everything will not suddenly collapse, leaving no time for self-defense. Jordan’s border with Israel is very important. If Jordan collapses and falls under terrorist control, then Israel’s border can easily be pierced. Attacks from Lebanon and the Gaza Strip will never have the power which an attack from Jordanian territory would have. Jordan is key to Israel’s survival.
September 2nd , 2013
4. Annihilation of the Nations
Syria will destabilize the Middle East but it will not be the focal point of the second stage of destruction. Until now, with the civil uprisings, the destruction has been internal to each nation.
The second step is war between nations. In this war, other countries will inevitably be drawn in. Although seemingly small, no power will be present to prevent this conflict.
The third stage is the annihilation of some nations as prophesied at Fatima. This will have horrible, unimaginable consequences for the whole world, which will never be the same.
For 2000 years, Satan has planned this annihilation as his way of claiming back the world that I redeemed by my blood. I do not want this annihilation. That is why my mother has spoken so often and why I am now speaking so clearly. The world must be told that the annihilation of the nations is not far away. If the Church does not want to reveal the truths contained in the Fatima secret, then I will use this little voice to do so.
September 4th, 2013
5. A Terrible Mistake
The fires of Syria contain unimaginable evil that can easily break forth to cause greater destruction. This will encompass the Middle East and beyond.
President Obama has placed his finger upon the trigger and is about to fire missiles into this fire. He does not realize the untold harm, the great loss of life and the retaliation that awaits such an action.
How has he come to this foolish position? Satan has led him to this point. If he takes this step, he will plunge America into a fire that will not be shaken off. What a terrible, terrible mistake.
The Holy Father has taken the correct course, asking for prayer and fasting. From this will come a wave of peace that will surprise many. In the coming days, war and peace will clash. Pray and fast for peace.
September 6th, 2013
The Fires of Syria
President Obama will return home from the G-20 summit knowing how little support he has from the international community for military action against Syria. When he arrives home, he will also see that his support is divided. He will fight on, feeling that he is in a moral crusade when really it is Satan who is pushing him.
Satan loves weapons, suffering and death. He sees that America has more weapons than anyone else. He knows that if some of these weapons are released in a limited offensive that the attraction to use greater weapons will be too strong to resist. All Satan needs is for America to release one missile and he will have access to the whole arsenal. No one can predict what weapons will be used or not used. Such is the seriousness of these choices. )
Explaining the Power of the Holy Spirit in the Baptized (Aug. 22 to Sept. 6, 2013)
August 22, 2013 Using Our Human Natures
All three divine persons manifest their presence and power. The Father’s power is seen in the magnificence of all creation. The Word is manifested in all the words and deeds of Jesus. The Spirit, too, wants to manifest his power. In these daily visitations, I will explain this mystery that is covered over and forgotten, causing the Spirit to be called the “hidden” and “forgotten” person of the Trinity (which he is not supposed to be).
In the great mystery of my womb, the Word became flesh, taking to himself a new human nature. He used his humanity to reveal himself. The Holy Spirit acts quite differently. He assumes no new human nature, but uses each baptized person as his instrument. As the baptized person allows the Spirit to act through him, the Church and the world see the reality of the Spirit and are blessed by his actions.
August 23, 2013 The Spirit’s Anointing
The heavenly Father had given Jesus definite tasks to accomplish. He had to preach, to heal, and to raise from the dead. He also had to be obedient even to his death on the cross. To fulfill the Father’s will Jesus was anointed with the Holy Spirit at his Baptism. Even before that, Jesus was led by the Spirit. That is why he knew to remain in the temple (his Father’s house) when he was 12 years old.
Jesus was quite aware of the Spirit’s anointing. He told those in the Nazareth synagogue, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor”.
He also knew that the Father would send the Paraclete, the Spirit of Truth upon the disciples. He prophesied, “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes down upon you”. He commanded the disciples not to leave Jerusalem but to wait for the Holy Spirit, the promise of the Father.
The Father had his task of creation. Jesus had his task of redemption. The Spirit has his task of sanctification. He fulfills this task every day but he needs the cooperation of the baptized to fulfill it.
August 24, 2013 Changed Lives
The Holy Spirit brought about many miracles among the early disciples but his greatest manifestation was their changed lives. A great holiness came upon the Early Church. Each person was a new creation. The former sins were put away and goodness filled them.
They rejoiced to be with each other, to share in the prayers, the Eucharist and their common life. When people came into Jesus’ presence, they knew that they had to change their life. If not, they departed (as Judas at the Last Supper). So it was with the early community, formed by the Spirit of Jesus. The Church’s fervor called the person to goodness. The Holy Spirit used this community as his instrument in changing lives. This was the secret of the Church’s tremendous growth.
August 25, 2013 The Believing Community
Do not be surprised at all that I reveal about my spouse, the Spirit of Jesus, because so much has been hidden for so long. Today, I will speak of the community of believers which he formed by the powers of Baptism. Much is lacking in the Church because the powers of Baptism are unknown. They are unknown because there exists no true community of believers who manifest these powers and can communicate them to the newly baptized.
Recall the scenes of the Early Church. Because of a special joy, all the believers wanted to come together. The Spirit joined their hearts in the gift of religious experiences. They knew that the Spirit was in their midst. His signs and wonders manifested him. He became present to each believer by his living flame. This is what is missing today, a community which daily experiences the fire of the Spirit and communicates this fire to new believers.
August 26, 2013 The Mighty Rivers
The Holy Spirit comes as a mighty river. The soul finds itself filled with a great joy. Tears flow. Emotions pour out. The soul feels like some divine fire pierced its heart. The soul has no doubt. No one needs to explain the Holy Spirit who now works so powerfully within.
At other times, the Spirit comes like a quiet stream. Again, the soul cannot doubt. Peace, a deep and lasting peace, covers the soul. It believes and hopes in God with no effort at all.
Some divine power surrounds the soul All is different. Again, the soul knows that it abides in God’s loving hands.
There are two secrets to this great release of the Holy Spirit. First, the person must know and seek these powers. The Spirit wants to flow like a mighty river. Second, the community must believe in these powers. How can the person know unless the community believes and manifests the joy and fervor of the Spirit’s presence? I want the Church to become communities of the Holy Spirit. Anything else will completely fail. The Spirit will bring about a victory march. Without his powers, all will be defeat. This call is very deep. A superficial response loses everything.
August 27, 2013 The Great Manifestations
Jesus was born quietly in a hidden manger in Bethlehem. However, at the great feast of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit came in a great manifestation of power in the very center of Jerusalem. From the very beginning, he wanted the whole world to know that he had come and would abide until the end of time.
On Pentecost, we were gathered in the Upper Room, faithful to Jesus’ command to wait in Jerusalem until anointed with the Spirit. Each day, we continued in prayer and great expectancy. Suddenly, we heard a noise like a mighty wind that filled the room. Then, we saw tongues like fire that parted and rested on each of us. For the first time, under the Spirit’s power, we began to speak in different tongues. This was the first and abiding manifestation of the Spirit.
This manifestation would constantly happen when the Spirit was given. Cornelius and his family spoke in tongues (The Pentecost of the Gentiles – Acts 10; 44-49). The disciples of Ephesus spoke in tongues (Acts 19:6). This powerful manifestation was so common in the Early Church that Paul wrote to the Corinthians, “I should like all of you to speak in tongues, but even more to prophesy (1Cor.14:5). How important are all the Spirit’s manifestations. Yet, they are mostly unknown in the Church. The Holy Spirit, alas, remains hidden and unknown.
August 28, 2013 The Spirit Forms Community
The Early Church was a community filled with great signs and wonders, the works performed by the Holy Spirit through the believers. You cannot understand these phenomena without grasping the intense life of that beginning community. Today, even Catholics do not enjoy a community.
After mass, they often return to their individual lives.
In the beginning, the Spirit’s fire led the people to fuse their lives. They became a family, joined as brothers and sisters. They praised God together. They shared their stories and they gathered others. In this intense sharing, they experienced the Spirit’s powers. He healed. He prophesied. He raised up teachers and leaders. Within the community, all of these powers were expected. The people had intense faith. If they withdrew from the community, they returned to a world without faith, and they lost these manifestations. Experiencing the Spirit’s powers depends on the closeness and fervor of the community of believers.
The Spirit wants to restore these powers. Catholics must understand and be willing to join regularly with others. This is the secret of true Church renewal.
August 29, 2013 Gifts of Service
The Holy Spirit wants to pour out these gifts of service but so many do not even know what they are or how they are received. St. Paul writes, “I do not want you to be in ignorance of the spiritual gifts” (1Cor.12:1). This ignorance is widespread and believers do not come together. How can a person use a gift of service when there is nobody to serve? These gifts flourish when believers know about them and gather in the Spirit.
At Medjugorje, I spoke often of these little groups of prayer, but who has heard my plea? So, I make it again. The renewal of the Church depends totally upon the Holy Spirit. He wants to be known and to show forth his power. He will pour out these powerful gifts if believers come together.
Satan wants to isolate the believer and to immerse him in the world. The Spirit calls the believer out of the world so he can join with others. Today, so many do not even go to mass.
How can the Spirit give them power to serve? Those that go to mass, are in ignorance of the spiritual gifts and do not gather with other believers in prayer.
Is it any wonder why the Church is weak? I am trying to explain the secrets of the Spirit’s workings. Just begin. Study the books. Come together. I will be in your midst to lead you. Do it today. Remember, the time is very, very short.
August 30, 2013 Importance of Prophesy
Today, I will speak of the importance to the Church of prophetic visions and words. Later, I will teach about the use of prophesy. Look again at the Early Church. How did this great missionary enterprise reach the end of the known world in just a few decades? Was this the work of human genius? Not at all. Read the scriptures. All was guided by the revealing gifts of the Spirit.
By a prophetic vision, Peter knew to go to the home of Cornelius, the Gentile (Acts C10). By prophetic words spoken at Antioch, Barnabas and Saul were sent forth on the great missionary journey (Acts C13). On the second journey, the Holy “Spirit did not allow Paul to preach in Asia. Instead, a prophetic vision called him to Macedonia in Europe (Acts C16). Later, when Paul was to return to Jerusalem, he already knew clearly that he would be taken prisoner because of a prophecy given by Agabus (Acts 21:10-11). While in custody, the Lord himself told Paul, that, having preached the gospel in Jerusalem, he would also bear witness in Rome (Acts 23:11).
Where would the Early Church have been without the Holy Spirit’s prophetic revelations? The community would be floundering and subjected to every kind of failure. Such is the plight of today’s Church because the prophetic word is not spoken and the prophetic vision is not received.
Prophecy is not an extraordinary experience like God speaking from the mountaintop amid thunder and lightning. Prophecy is a quiet voice, heard within the heart.
At times the Spirit reveals the Father’s will for the soul. These words are just for the person. Sometimes, the words are for another person, a group, for the Church, or even for the whole world (such as these locutions). This is what I will explain.
August 31, 2013 The Importance of Prophesy
Prophecy is very important because it is the word of God. Paul writes, “Strive eagerly for the spiritual gifts, above all that you may prophesy” (1Cor.14:1) because “whoever prophesies builds up the Church (V4).
The Spirit has already given God’s word in the Bible and in the authoritative teachings of the Church. True prophesy never contradicts that word but applies the word and explains God’s plan in individual circumstance.
How the Holy Spirit wants to speak out! Through the gift of prophesy he guides the individual speaks to congregations and even leads the entire Church. To set aside this spiritual gift is to walk in a useless darkness. I ask “Can human solutions save the Church? Can the thoughts of man, even the thoughts of bishops and popes adequately guide the Church? God’s plans are hidden and he reveals the great mysteries through the prophets.
Oh, when will the spiritual gift of prophecy come forth to illumine the Church? When will those who guide my Church accept the prophetic word? Even when I speak in authorized apparitions, the words are set aside.
The future of the Church will be filled with a great light and power resulting from the Spirit pouring out his prophetic word. As Peter said, “Your sons and your daughters will prophesy.” (Acts 2:17). Yes, all from the greatest to the least will speak God’s word and new life will flow out.
