My Daughter, Suffering will be sign to you that I am with you(669)
Be afraid of nothing; love will give you strength and make the realization of this easy.(372)
What are you afraid of? If you are with Me, who will dare touch you? (792)
And the one that really made cry the first time I read it and touched me when I heard it is this one.
I shall give you a small portion of My Passion, but do not be afraid, be brave; do not seek relief, but accept everything with submission to My will. (1053)
Yes they are excerpts from the Diary of St Faustina, God’s Secretary of Mercy. (This is where you can get a copy of the Diary)
Dear friends in Jesus Christ,
As our Pastoral work goes, many a times we feel the Weight of world, its leaders, its rules, its laws, its society, that they all want to persecute you, to get you down to the very bottom, to hit you with everything they have got.
You know why?
Because this is the battle which Jesus foretold through St Paul in Ephesians 6:12 “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
If they proclaim you as wrong, if you condemn you as incorrect, when they tell you Apologize for telling the truth.
This is for you!
Yes I wanna be Guilty, if that means doing His will, to do His will. Oh Hallelujah
Common! Bring it on!
You can be a Saint
In time of peril when the whole world is crashing down upon us, I tell you this that Being a saint, is never been so easy.
I told you before that W+w = Saint ( I’m sorry that what St. Maximilian Kolbe said not me, the Saint of the Auschwitz, the Nazi Death Camp)
John Paul II declared him “The Patron Saint of Our Difficult Century”
Where W = Gods will , w = Our Will to do God’s will makes us Saint. And yes it did, just read his life.
So this is my Bold Proclamation to you today, In face persecution say Yes Lord I accept you, I know you are in control, I know this cross is not empty, you are there, let them come with all they have for my victory is already won by you at that cross, and this cross, and in every cross.
Make no mistake friend, Sacraments, does include us in the Body of Christ, so as we call call ourselves Christians, but Jesus Christ explicitly told us that “For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.” in Matthew 12.50
But does that mean sacraments are void?
But no means, they are the graces that we need to do the Will of our Father, Son and Spirit.
Everybody falls, everybody sins, but please remember that does separate us from our God, but only to the time when we have no confessed our sins in the Sacrament of reconciliation by repenting.
So this is what I’m telling you today, Christians you are no exception to the Word of God, you of all people should know that God has expressed to us though the Sacred Scripture.
John 1:1 says “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
Prophesy to His Believers
So this my friend, I’m telling you, my brothers and sisters as Jesus has said it boldly before everyone, as i say it before my future, my family, and before the courts of the world that.
“Brothers will turn against their own brothers and hand them over to be killed. Fathers will hand over their own children to be killed. Children will fight against their own parents and will have them killed. Everyone will hate you because you follow me. But the one who remains faithful to the end will be saved. When you are treated badly in one city, go to another city. I promise you that you will not finish going to all the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes again.” – Matthew 10:21-23
But if this is persecution how can still do Lords work? Well lets follow Him on what He says through St Paul “He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. – Philippians 1:6
And through Prophet Jeremiah Do not be afraid of them, For I am with you to deliver you,” declares the LORD. Jeremiah 1:8
Now, gird up your loins and arise, and speak to them all which I command you. Do not be dismayed before them, or I will dismay you before them. “Now behold, I have made you today as a fortified city and as a pillar of iron and as walls of bronze against the whole land, to the kings of Judah, to its princes, to its priests and to the people of the land. “They will fight against you, but they will not overcome you, for I am with you to deliver you,” declares the LORD. Jeremiah 1:17-19
But that does not mean Fight them, but as
Romans 12 says 14 Bless those who persecute you. Bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; weep with those who weep. 16 Live in harmony with one another.
“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
if he is thirsty, give him a drink.
For in so doing,
you will heap burning coals on his head.”
21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
“If you going though a trial and suffering and God seems to be miles away, remember in a Test the Teacher is Always Quiet, but that does not mean He’s not present. Oh He’ is very much with you, more than you know.”
Now to the Conclusion, you wanted know right why they do what they do?
Just look at picture for few moments and you will understand what I’m trying to tell you today.
See Darkness is the absence of light. And you see that in the Candle above you, that the more the light is the greater is the darkness. But even with its greatness it cannot penetrate the Light, which illuminates so brightly.
So this proves that when you say the truth, people don’t like it, and the number who have their version of Jesus Christ, who has their own thoughts as how God revealed though us, this comes as a blow, because it shakes their fundamental thoughts, the thoughts that has dominated them since their introduction to this faith.
Now, I wont blame them, and I don’t want you to blame them too! For this is not a blame game, this is me telling you, forgive them for they don’t know what is wrong and what is write. Because years of practicing what they believe has blurred the vision of truth and lie.
This is Mercy in Misery, trust me when I tell you, that they are in the lives are fighting themselves, and they are fighting themselves, sometimes even greater wars than what we are fighting. So I tell you friends, we can but forgive them, because then only we can become channels of Mercy, the real mercy of God, channeling directly at their misery.
After all, we want them to be saved, right? Jesus will ask us on the last day, The day of Judgement, your brothers and sisters were suffering, what did you do to save him?
I tell you Let us give them the very best thing that we have Gods mercy, for our Belief, Faith and life is based on God’s infinite love and mercy.
See Darkness in world wants wants to feel light, they also want to know what is the secret that makes the light to lit. But it cannot because there is a big difference in between what they want and how they want it.
Problem is there is only one way to attain it.
And I will scream this out to out.
Submit, Surrender, Love, Forgive, Show Mercy, Preach, Live, Bring Life, Give life, Defend and Save it at all cost.
I know its a couple of words, but they all mean the same thing Love, they all mean God as God is but Love.
Remember the Last Supper, the Most Powerful Experience of the Apostles of Jesus, where Jesus reveals them His Mission Statement, and the Mission Statement of Every Christian and how it can be achieved.
This is so powerful that every Sunday the Roman Catholic Church celebrates the Last Supper with the Apostles and Disciples of today. (Read the below chapters from the Gospel of the Heart, Gospel of John)
Lord thank you for the grace, of sufferings, thank you Lord, for sharing us that we are on the right path, that is why we are persecuted for your sake, Lord help us to accept our suffering, with deep love for you, and understand you more, let us Lord feel your presence as you promised to St Faustina, during our trails and temptations and most of all in our persecutions.
Lord Help us to be weak as we should be so that your power can over power us, Help us to be Strong as we should be to proclaim your Kingdom even when we face tough and tougher persecution, even death.
Let us be examples Lord, examples of your army of Saints, who will not be shaken, by anything, but with your grace and power lead them to you.
Oh Mary Mother of God, when we fail, lead us back to Jesus, oh First Disciple, Gods chosen one, pray for us in every moment, wash us clean with the Blood and Water which gushed forth from His pierced Side.
Oh Queen of Heaven and of the Kingdom come, Lead us & make us worthy to be present in front of our King, so that we may boldly proclaim in this world and in the next that we are ready for Our King, Queen and the Kingdom that we are going to live. Hallelujah Praise the Lord, the Father, Son and Spirit.
Go Change the World!
