“We must go a three days’ journey into the wilderness and sacrifice to the Lord our God as He commands us.” Exodus 8:27
I write in my journal as if the Lord is speaking to me. If the church were to declare what I have written is wrong, the church is correct and I am wrong.
Beloved Lily of the Father,
All of Salvation History from beginning to end is held within the Triduum, the 3 days.
My Mother marks the trajectory. Pay attention to her.
All things are being made transparent to those who KNOW me. If you know me, you know the Father and the Spirit dwells within you.
Have no fear or anxiety about the future. I AM already there. I hold you in the palm of My Hand.
The Smoke of Satan has entered the church.
They have made a God of science, it will reap destruction. Like those who worshipped Baal saw that the God of Israel is a consuming fire, so too will you witness this in these days.
You shall have no other Gods besides me.
Heaven and earth will shake.
Then will come the silence.
All will see who they are.
You will see what you did to me, what you did to my body on the cross.
The more communion you have received in a state of grace the more grace you will have to endure this sight. The sight of my broken body. You will see what you did to me, you did to yourself, you did to others. The shock of it will be immeasurable. It will be your Garden of Gethsemane, seeing what I saw. Held within the Triduum.
You must turn to my mercy at that hour, for the hour justice will come swiftly for those who reject my mercy.
The earth will tremble, fire will fall.
All will be dark for 3 days. If it were any longer you couldn’t bear it.
Prepare your heart to be a sanctuary, a refuge.
I love you and you are mine.
Your Divine Spouse
May God Have Mercy upon us all!
Sitting in church two weeks ago before the start of Sunday mass I asked the Lord for a word and immediately the response was The smoke of Satan has entered the church. I felt him say that what I was experiencing in the natural (a bit of smoke was coming in the church from the open doors due to extremely smoky air caused by forest fires), had already happened in the supernatural.
Thank you and God bless you for all that you share. I must admit, I struggle with this – not with the truth of what you write but my own response. I know that God is all merciful and ready to forgive all that we bring to Him in Confession. He not only forgives but forgets once we confess. I believe that He wants us with Him in Heaven more than even we desire it ourselves. What I can’t fathom is how, faced with ALL that I have done, with the injury I’ve caused myself, others and the Lord Himself, how I could possibly bear it? Even now, knowing that God forgives me completely, I admit to fearing unconfessed sins, or sins poorly confessed; this coming Illumination will confront me with all that, as well as with the effects of what has already been forgiven….how does one stand in the face of all that? I do not doubt His Love but fear my despair. Am I wrong that confession and acts of reparation will not spare me from this nor mitigate its horror? The Illumination will be an act of Love, but I feel completely unequipped to respond….
I think now is the time to ask the Holy Spirit to reveal sins, so you can surrender them freely, and walk in the grace in which you stand.
Your comment was really heartfelt. God bless you! I think many, many people are in your position, as I was there also for nearly two solid years. I will share with you what I felt led to do to be led out of the darkness and torment in my mind and heart. Go back to the basics in the Bible. Until we understand what the death of Jesus on the Cross actually accomplished for us, we will swim in murky uncertainty. It is also part of being transformed by the renewal of your mind. Allow your mind to be renewed. It sounds like “the Accuser” is working you over, and that is where the battle is the most fierce. Ask the Lord to draw all UNgodly mindsets to Himself on the Cross and grant you healing in these areas where Satan is dominating your mind. Guilt is Satan’s greatest weapon against us. He will use it without relenting until we feel God surely is so disgusted with my imperfections why bother. Or, the opposite: increase all works in order to make up for our sins. Both of these positions render us impotent so to speak in bringing others to Christ.
Pray and work on your mind. That is your battle, many peoples battle. Another thing I read that encouraged me was Hope is the helmet of salvation. Without it, we will fall. If we don’t have hope and a healthy mind and heart when we receive our illumination, we will certainly be lost in guilt, shame, and darkness. I’ll pray for you!
We’re forgetting that being naked was a tremendous suffering for our Lord. The Romans did this because it was so demeaning. It added another dimension to the physical agony of the crucified person. So He suffered more because of this than any one else (beside his Mother) could.
Susan and Sally,
God bless you both for your responses to my comment. I brought your words with me in prayer to Mass today, where the Gospel told of Peter sinking when he took his eyes off of Jesus. It occurred to me that I am focused solely on the wounds I’ve caused, “the shock of (which) will be immeasurable.” This makes it near impossible to walk into the future. I have to remember to keep my eyes on Christ as well, who allowed Himself to be wounded for my sake. We, as Church and individuals have to face our Garden of Gethsemane – may God help us to surrender our sins and brokenness to Mercy Himself so that we can walk forward in His grace.
You have given me much to contemplate, as well as a path forward in hope. I am truly grateful.
You’re very welcome, and you are in my daily prayers. Remember that Christ actually desired to die for our sins. And as He reminded me, “you forget My Resurrection!”
Hope and Joy! God bless you.
How is your mom doing? I think of her as a fiery ball of light, ready to take off.
It is coming, very soon. I know, as I had as miraculous opportunity for confession today at eucharistic adoration tonight.
During this time before the Dormition (Assumption) we say the office of the Paraclesis, a liturgical office of petition our Lady. Our Lord appreciated tonight that I said this office before Him.
Mom’s okay James. It’s hard. She cries a lot when she remembers what happened. She asks for him when she doesn’t.
Mom is a fiery ball of light. I keep thinking of Our Lady of Sorrows.
Susan, again thank you for your reflections. I do need to trust in our Lord more. Some days it seems so hard. I feel for your mom. May she find peace.
Thank you. We all need to trust in the Lord more.
As Cardinal Sarah titled his elegant book, “The Day is Far Spent.” Do you think during the warning we will be shone the good we have done? Or just our sins, and the things we could have done but did not? I pray about this often as Divine Mercy gives way, as it must because of our bad behavior, to justice.
I think a warning is always about showing the bad – at the same time God is mercy – so just receive the mercy.
