What does it entail to belong to God – to be able to “stand for God “?
To love God, means to truly love and obey His Word. Many say they are Christian, but they are the first to fall when Truths, as taught by Jesus in the Gospel, are twisted or “added to” to suit our modern society. To be a follower of Christ, is to fight for Him, to follow in His footsteps. If we do that faithfully, we have Jesus’ promise to join Him in His Kingdom.
But to follow Christ, means to suffer just like Him. It means to suffer, to be mocked and falsely accused. In the following message, Jesus tells us what we must do to follow Him. He tells us we suffer because the evil one hates the presence of Jesus in us. Jesus reassures us that He pours many graces over those who truly love Him, and in particular the special Grace of Discernment. We indeed are part of God’s army, because we are soldiers for Christ. In this reading Jesus empowers and reassures us, but He also tells us what happens to those who are not truly His followers.
Heed not the roars of opposition for human opinion means nothing in My Kingdom
30 August 2014 @ 6:15pm; Message 1204
My dearly beloved daughter, perseverance in suffering brings a soul closer to Me and I reward such trials because of it. Never underestimate how My Presence in a soul never goes unnoticed by the evil one, who is drawn quickly towards those souls where My Presence is strongest. Accept suffering in My Name and understand that the reason for it is because of Me. Were I not present the evil one would ignore you.
The Graces, which I lavish on those who love Me the most, and who have shelved every aspect of self-love and pride, includes the Gift of Discernment. This is a very special Gift from Heaven and blessed are those who have the grace to discern the Truth for they are the ones who will never be swayed by falsities. Those of you who are given this Gift will bring Me souls. But for every soul you bring Me, and because of your prayers and suffering, the evil one will try to stop you. Know that the Glory of God which is present by your side will draw forth a terrible venom and you will be cursed in My Name by those weak souls, who are like fodder for Satan and every demon he has released to destroy souls on earth.
Be at peace and know that when you uphold the Truth – the Word of God – in the face of adversity, all Power of Mine is wielded to save souls. For each soul you bring Me I will lavish more Graces upon you and so it will continue. Heed not the roars of opposition for human opinion means nothing in My Kingdom. You must always see one another as if through My Eyes. Have I not told you this before? Don’t you understand the most basic lesson, which I taught during My Time on earth? Love one another as I love you. If you cannot love your enemies then you will find it more difficult to come closer to Me. If you place yourself before others, then you cannot say you love Me unconditionally for if you did you would say to Me
“Jesus I am not worthy to stand before You, but do with me what You will as I will do as You desire.”
Go all of you and remind yourselves as to Who I Am. Only when you live your lives according to My Teachings can you really say you are of Me. You cannot take one part of My Word and proclaim it loudly and then deny other parts. To those who declare their superiority over others, and who present their twisted versions of My Word, and when this results in the drawing of souls away from Me, I say this. The day when I withdraw My Presence in the world, will be when the mighty and the proud will cry tears of anger, and then despair, for they will know then how their deceit caused many souls to fall and the anger of God will make them tremble. There will be screaming and gnashing of teeth. But by then, they will have nowhere to turn. They will have no one to answer to for they will never see My Face.
Keeping in mind this message,we are expected as followers of Christ to help Him save souls :
During August, (the month for the Salvation of Souls), Jesus requests us to:
- spend the month of August praying the Divine Mercy daily for the lost souls who will not survive The Warning.
- Fast one day a week, ( if you are able to).
- Daily Mass and the receiving the Most Holy Eucharist
- Pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet each day at 3 o’clock.
