Therefore, I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven people, but blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. Matthew 12:30-31
I was looking at the dire state of the world today and everything that is happening. And while speaking with the Lord it’s as if it became clear that everything we are experiencing is a symptom. It is a symptom of sin.
Viruses, racism, rioting and even the wrecking of the environment, they are all caused by sin. And our society is largely screaming at other people stating that these other people are the problem, but that is exactly backwards. The antibody of the COVID19 virus is called “Luciferase”. Lucifer isn’t even hiding any more. And while everyone I know condemns what happened to George Floyd as abject atrocity, the BLM website states, “We disrupt the Western – prescribed nuclear family structure by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents and children are comfortable.” This ignores the command of God that “a man leave his mother and father and cleave to his wife.” In fact the site seems to ignore Father’s all together. George Floyd was a father of five children, does his Fatherhood matter to an organization that specifically states the degradation of patriarchy on their website? It’s exactly backwards. The blessings of the Black Father should be restored not torn down if you want healing. Black lives do matter. They matter to the Father in heaven and the Blessings of the Father are for all of us. While righteous anger is warranted in the face of injustice when it turns to rage and rioting and destruction of property it becomes a violation of the seventh commandment. Do we support that? When it comes to climate change advocates deny the goodness of human beings made in the image and likeness of God, and their solutions involve abortion, contraception, and the general depopulation of the planet. Again, the exact opposite of what the Lord commanded when he said, “be fruitful and multipy.”
While we should as Catholics stand up against injustice, it is the injustice of sin that afflicts us all. First, we need to know what sin is as defined by the church which is God’s representative on earth and then we should start purging sin from our own lives which enables us to bring true love to society.
In the words of G.K. Chesterton on what is wrong with the world he stated, “I am.“
There is no humility, no mercy, no forgiveness, no love. We need to repent and believe in the Gospel. But that involves admitting where we are wrong.
I was pondering all these things when I heard the Lord speak to me. As always when I record what pops in my head from my journal it is for your discernment. If the church were to come out and say that what I have written is wrong, then the church is correct and I am wrong.
This is what I recorded yesterday, June 9, 2020 on the Feast of Saint Ephram;
Beloved Lily of the Father,
The climate is changing, but not in the way you think. It changes because of the blackening of the soul of man. It is sin that emanates the heat of destruction.
EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED.
Sin is not something in a vacuum by itself. Its effects permeate all of creation.
When creation is properly ordered to the Father who is LOVE AND PROTECTION the breath of life permeates throughout everything.
The Son gives life, as the sun gives life. A beacon of light permeating creation.
When sin becomes all encompassing, like my body on the cross, everything becomes ugly and distorted.
Creation, the church, they are all connected.
In order to purify you must pass through the cross. The skies tell the story of the sin of mankind.
Nothing will work as it should. Silence will engulf your technology.
In this emptiness is surrender.
In surrender the Glory of God will fill you. Do not be afraid of the whirlwind.
In the immensity that engulfs you your souls will be purfied, you will be amazed at the miracles I AM.
If the Holy Spirit is the action of God, the Love of God proceeding from the Father and the Son, then when mankind collectively turns away from God, then man, including creation, is blaspheming the Holy Spirit, the unforgiveable sin. The result of this brings mass destruction because it is a total rejection of the action of God.
It seems that biblically speaking, if more than just one man believes, then God spares.
In looking at the story of Noah, polygamy was rampant, which would mean fatherless children were running around as one man could not possibly protect and care for the many children of many wives, many if not most women would be left alone to care and protect the children. Both Noah and even Job had only one wife. Even in the story of Lot, we see the bargaining with God to save them, the sexual immorality of Sodom – but God still willing to spare even for a few; only he can’t find them.
Is this where we are? Do we reject Fatherhood? When the Son of Man returns will he find faith?
This is why I believe I see a map of Golden Souls in my prayer. This is why we need to be living Sanctuaries. If we believe all that the Holy Catholic Church teaches and professes, even the hard things, then the Holy Spirit ACTS in us, and we become the light in the darkness. Just a few souls acting in the Spirit can bring the Glory of God to this broken planet of ours.
We are attached to so many things other than God. I suspect in the days ahead we will all be tested. We will cry out to God. We must become detached from the world in order to purify it. Then and only then will the Kingdom of God reign on earth as it is in heaven.
In the end it is Jesus that matters and God alone who is good and can heal us.
You are correct “Lucifer isn’t even hiding any more” and really hasn’t for some time now. He has a dark sense of humor and he he uses us to convict ourselves. As an example there is an old phrase “to 86 someone” that means to kill them. Is it any wonder that the abortion pill RU486 reads like a question? Are You For 86? (Are you for Murder?), if you take the pill the answer is yes!
God is merciful, the current rioters are not, burning down businesses etc. All satan can do is destroy and that is what he is accomplished at. As we look now we can see many doing his work, and it is not at all good (Only God is good).
From the Nicene Creed “I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son”, but to better understand this the technical term is the Holy Spirit spirates from the Father and the Son (the word has the same root as aspirate). The definition of Spirate is “the action of breathing as a creative or life-giving function of God.” When God created human life, he did it by making Adam out of clay and breathing into his nostrils. That breath of life is the action of the Holy Spirit. Read in scripture where the breath of life is referenced, these verses include: Genesis 2:7, Genesis 6:17, Acts 17:25, Job 27:3, Job 33:4, Isaiah 42:5, Isaiah 57:16, Revelation 11:11 and there are others. John 3:8 states “Jesus said to Nicodemus, “Do not be surprised that I said to you that you must be born again. The spirit breathes where he will and you hear his voice but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone born of the spirit.”
Why do I mention this? Satan wants to be like God but is his opposite in nature. In John 8:44 we find “He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in truth, because there is no truth in him.” So the Holy Spirit is the breath of Life and Satan is a murderer and a liar.
It is interesting that the current pandemic plague Covid-19 is a corona virus (Corona meaning Crown due to its spiky appearance (think crown of thorns)) and is passed from the breath. So this plague is a breath of illness or death vs the breath of life that is the spiration of the Holy Spirit. We need to turn back to God and pray for God to act through the Holy Spirit/breath of life to remove this evil.
Job 34:14-15 states: “If he were to set his mind to it, gather to himself his spirit and breath, All flesh would perish together, and mortals return to dust”
On further reflection on what you wrote,
* “… it is the injustice of sin that afflicts us all.”
* “EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED.”
* “Sin is not something in a vacuum by itself. Its effects permeate all of creation.”
I think our response to the mercy and Love of God dictates a self imposed response. God is Love, all he does is Love. If we cooperate with the will of God we get Love, mercy, compassion, wisdom etc. If we do not we get suffering, hopelessness, anger, fear etc. This goes right to our final destination, as it is all interconnected.
I find it interesting that God the Father appeared as the burning bush. The Holy Spirit appeared as tongue’s of flame etc. God has a burning love, the purification in Purgatory is as fire etc. So the fires of Hell may well be that rejected love of God that would purify if the creature were to actively participate in the Will of God. Love as I understand it is defined as: Love is the active participation in the Will of God. That definition is important in understanding what follows.
Heaven, Purgatory and Hell are all a consequence of the perfect love of God. Since every act of God is an act of love, how do we explain Purgatory and Hell? God is omnipresent, as such he is in all places including here, Heaven, Purgatory and Hell. As such our response and discernment of God’s presence greatly affects the state of or souls. Heaven is a given, it is the presence in the fullness of God’s Love.
‘…we recognize that “heaven” is where the will of God is done, and that “earth” becomes “heaven”—i.e., the place of the presence of love, of goodness, of truth and of divine beauty—only if on earth the will of God is done.’ —POPE BENEDICT XVI, General Audience, February 1st, 2012, Vatican City
This is why when Jesus was asked how we should pray he said: “Our Father who art in Heaven… Thy kingdom come they will be done on earth as it is in heaven…”
It is the rejection of God and his Love that causes or ultimate sufferings. One suffers in purgatory as a direct result and consequence of the unrepentant separation the person has placed between themselves and God. Those in purgatory desire God, have hope with the knowledge they will be purified, but suffer the burning desire caused by their self-separation from God. They cannot fully partake in the presence of God’s Love due to their imperfection resulting in their separation which causes them their suffering. Those in Hell have completely rejected God, so the presence of the Love of God rejected causes them indescribable suffering (fire of hell). They have no hope in God and refuse to be purified, so their suffering is self-imposed, complete and never ends. God is love and all he does is loving, he is not causing the suffering, it is self imposed and chosen. If in our sin we turn to God in trust with hope and ask for his mercy, it completely changes the effect of his Justice (how we experience the unquenchable burning love of God!). Since God is Love, we choose if we accept or reject that love and the degree of that acceptance or rejection becomes our greatest joy or suffering.
As you said: “… it is the injustice of sin that afflicts us all.”, “Sin is not something in a vacuum by itself. Its effects permeate all of creation.”, EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED.”
Yes if God stopped loving us we would cease to be. Even the existence of hell is because of the love of God. Our suffering being our rejection of it.
