I CAME TO CALL SINNERS
On January 10, 2013 Jesus gave a prophecy, one of the series being posted here at Life in the Spirit. In it He explained why He is calling us at this time, or at any time, for that matter. All indents are directly from the prophecy. All comment is mine, and may or may not be inspired.
You who are now listening and envisioning Me, I came that you might have life unto the full.
He wants us to have a full life. But, you say, I have a full life. In that case, you won't be offended or challenged by the posting of Monsignor Charles Pope over at the Archdiocese of Washington today here. Don't forget to watch the video at the bottom. Facebook would not allow it to be shown through Facebook, so it must be very contentious.
Sin has robbed you of all that I had planned out of love for all humanity, burdening you with hardships.
As Jesus explains to us, sin has gotten in the middle between us and a full life. You know, we all have our favorite sins, the things that we do so habitually, that we don't even think of them as sins, if we think of anything as a sin. But, just because we do not think they are sins does not make it so. The man who commits adultery "because his wife does not understand him," or the person who lives in a homosexual relationship because he/she "would not choose to be a homosexual" is deluded, as we all are in some ways into thinking that our feelings can direct our actions and thoughts, and we are not responsible for them. But, for the unhappy adulterer (at least after the moments of sexual pleasure wear off) or the unhappy homosexual (when he or she knows in the heart that what he/she is doing is not right) and all of us whatever our sin/drug of choice is know that our sins cause us to carry a heavy burden.
But I have redeemed you, and each of you, if not already, will experience a moment of awakening to the Truth.
How many of us ponder that Jesus REDEEMED us individually? How awake are we to the Truth of that ? Jesus says here that we will experience that moment of Truth.
This is the moment when you know Whose you are and that you are greatly loved and treasured.
What will that awakening feel like? At that moment, we will know that we belong to God, and that we are greatly loved by Him, and in fact He considers us a treasure. In that moment of Truth, we also know that it is He we have offended in ways we never even really knew, but that His love for us covers over all those sins.
But, why do so few even think about God, or if they do think badly of Him?
The evil one convinces many, that I do not exist and that I am a harsh and uncaring God.
Ah! There is another actor on the cosmic stage, the "evil one" or Satan. Satan not only convinces many that God does not exist. He also has many of us convinced that he does not exist, that he too is a figment of our imagination. Though that probably hurts his ego, it serves his purpose.
But God is ever able to thwart Satan's purpose.
But the Truth is that I humbled Myself to associate perfectly with you and all humanity.
We tend to forget that Jesus did humble himself to come to earth and live with us. He is not an impersonal God, but a very personal God.
I am a personal God who sees and cares about each breath, and thought, and every aspect of your lives.
He cares about each breath I take? And every thought? Every aspect of my life? And not only me and you, but every person on the face of the earth, and all those who have died and gone before. Sounds pretty personal to me.
My greatest joy will be to see you enjoy Paradise, which I formed for you for all eternity.
So, what is all this love God has for us about. He wants us in eternal paradise with Him But for many of us, we cannot see past the earth we are on here, and the simple life (though we think it is complex) that we live here on terra firma, though the terra does not seem so firma any more.
Some of My people are angry Souls, who without Me in their lives, hate everyone and all created things. Hatred consumes them, and you My faithful servants, must inform them of My forgiving love, and that it is never too late, even to the last moment of their lives.
There are people on the earth whose lives are filled with hatred. It does not manifest always in violence. Sometimes these people just have not much good to say about people and places and things. This kind of hatred looks benign, but is hatred just the same.
But, God is making it our job not to leave them in their hatred, but to love them and let them know that He loves them. Oh, and His love is forgiving. One of the things that hatred is really about is the self, when the person sees that the self is not good enough. Self hatred tends to manifest as hatred of others.
But, God can heal all of that hatred, and fill the person with joy. When a Grumpy Gus becomes a Happy Harry, the heavens rejoice. And for the GG to become an HH, really takes letting go; letting go of a life on unmet expectations, and sadness.When they open the door of their hearts, I receive them, they feel love possibly for the first time in a long time, and they experience a joy that transcends all sadness and pain.All the hurt and the ways that others have let them down, has been put behind them and they are unburdened.
You see, when I am given permission to take over a person's life, I do all the work that needs to be done, they need only cooperate and receive.In the beginning, you are not able to do for yourself, what My Holy Spirit accomplishes within you.
All God wants from you and me is PERMISSION; permission to let Him take over our lives. That is the hardest thing to do for us humans. We think we are in charge, and if we let go, who is out there to take charge for us? Why not ask God and find out? What can it hurt? If you ask God to help you our, and He doesn't exist or doesn't really love you, what have you lost? You tried and it didn't work. But it was worth a try.
However, it will work, because all God wants from you is a little "yes".
Little by little, I allow Faith which was given to you in Baptism, to flex its muscle, so to speak, and you learn to be faithful in small things.I will eventually call upon you to grow in courage, your efforts are essential, it doesn't just happen, and you will be strengthened for greater responsibility, each has a mission in life.
If you say yes, He will do it all until you are able to take baby steps on your own in your faith, and you will grow stronger, more courageous, and happier than you can imagine, with only peace in your heart - real peace in your heart, not the kind that comes and goes depending on your mood, and circumstances. Real peace.
Many of you have endeared yourselves to the Blessed Mother, this was My heart's deepest longing at the Cross, when I gave Her to you, and She has been drawing you to Me more each day.
Mary is there to help us; to help us draw closer to Jesus. Jesus left her here on earth as our Mother, a better mother than our own human mother, because she has complete and direct access to God all the time, and because she carried the Son of God inside her, and was formed by God for that purpose, and to be our Mother.
This is the tough part, but it is necessary. We must not only follow Jesus, but we must forgive all those along our path who hurt us on our journey. Why is that so important? It is important for us to not harbor hatred and anger to others, because it turns us away from God, but our hatred sits on top of theirs and weighs them down even further. Forgiving and loving those it is hard to love takes burdens off of them, and helps them to see what we are called to see,In the coming time that remains to you, follow Me and forgive those who will be opposing and persecuting you, causing more hardships than you already endure.
