TEACHINGS OF THE LORD

It is I, Jesus.  Child, write.

Today I come and thank you for your offerings and your obedience.  You paced yourself this day in order to gather strength as I asked.  It is not easy to have to put aside what you desire to do in order to maintain strength in order to do what is needed to be done.  All who are chronically ill must learn to prioritize what is needed to be done. 

In this day of go-go-go, it is hard to stand firm and humbly say ‘I cannot do that’.  In the end you accomplish more than those who are healthy but running in all directions.  It is easier to grow spiritually when your life is ordered and structured.

I bless every effort made to help others who are ill to see the good that they can do, even if severely limited in strength.

I bless you.

Today I come and speak of obedience.

Child, you have done all I have asked these last few days.  You are testing the freedom you feel and trying to find a balance between what has been and what is opening up.  You said today to yourself, ‘I have not felt like this since 1990’.  You feel good in your own skin, as you said.  You see how these last few years have strengthened both you and little one in your love for Me and for each other, and you rejoice in this.  You see, also, how you were trying so hard to live up to what you believed I desired.  It stifled a part of your natural outlook on life, and how you would naturally move through circumstances.  You have a natural joy of life.  You have felt at times inhibited in expressing who you are. 

I told you a few days ago that you had tried to live up to the expectations of others.  You have learned you do not need to do this to please Me.  I want you to be who you are.  I chose you and little one because of who you are.  If I wanted something different, I would have chosen someone else.  I do want you to be all that I created you to be, the both of you.  I do not want you to stagnate, but I do not want you to turn into someone you aren’t.  If you look at the lives of the saints that you know, they remained who they were as they grew in holiness.  They used their God-given personalities and talents to grow spiritually. 

This is a truth that is hard for My children to understand.  They are always trying to change into somebody else.  They read books on how to be slimmer, grow taller, grow smarter.  No one seems to like who they are.  Improving one’s self in areas is alright as long as it is not done because you don’t like yourself.  The world holds up a standard that is false and impossible to meet.  It tries to make everyone the same, and because that is impossible, so many are unhappy with themselves and with their lives.  They become self-absorbed and miss the joy and the beauty in their lives. 

Almost everyone who will come here (Yahweh Shalom) will think of themselves as defective.  This self-diagnosis keeps them from growing spiritually.

I ask that you and little one help those who come to appreciate who they are so that I may open their hearts to Me and to those around them.

I bless every effort made to gather with Me souls for the Kingdom. 

I bless you.

It is I, Jesus.  Child, write.

Today I come and thank you for your love, perseverance, and trust.  Both you and little one worked for My Glory by doing all in your day with love.

Child, you stepped out and did with confidence what you thought best.  You trusted and asked for counsel and then proceeded.  You have learned to act with decisiveness.

I desire My children seek Me, not trembling with fear of making a mistake, but in trust, in confidence.  What you did this day is a small thing by worldly standards, and some would even laugh that you sought counsel first in such a small matter, but decisiveness in small matters leads to decisiveness in great ones.  How many live their lives never moving forward because they are afraid to make a decision.  Making informed decisions is a necessity in life, both physically and spiritually. 

I wish to speak about indecisiveness in the spiritual life.  So many fall into inertia because they are afraid of making the wrong choice and failing to please Me.  I have taught you that when you seek My will through prayer, counsel, and in trust, you cannot fail Me because I will not permit you to fail.  If I must move Heaven and earth, I will do so because of your trust, love, and obedience.  My Power can make all things right.

I bless every effort made to teach My children this Truth.

I bless you.

It is I, Jesus.  Child, write.

Today I come and thank you both for serving Me. 

Each month little one prepares the messages and makes them ready to mail.  This is time consuming and takes several hours.  The benefit that is reaped from your work, little one, is beyond your understanding or imaginings.  So many hearts are changed through these messages.  The impact will only be known on the last Day.

Today both of you have pondered many things.  Each seeking My Will, and the best way to accomplish My Will.  Each of you have trust in Me beyond your realization.  I thank you both.  I will help you always in all your needs.

I bless every effort made to gather with Me souls for the Kingdom.

I bless you.

It is I, Jesus.  Child, write.

Today I come and give you comfort.  You each have struggled this day with problems that touch the heart.  You each have prayed and tried to discern the best course to take.  I thank you for your trust, and I thank you for your caring.  It is always difficult to take stands on matters of the heart.  I will give you the strength and the courage to do what your heart tells you is correct.

I bless every effort made to grow in trust, in love, and in abandonment to Me.

I bless you.

It is I, Jesus.  Child, write.

Today I come and thank you for your love and for offering all in this day for the conversion of souls and the opening of hearts to Me.  Through your tears and suffering this day you have drawn souls to Me.  You both offered all and I received your offering as a precious gift. 

I ask that you and little one rest this night in My Sacred Heart.  Be at peace, all Heaven prayed this day that you might be comforted.

I bless you both and ask that you always comfort others in their trials, in their tears.

I bless you.

It is I, Jesus.  Child, write.

Today I come to speak of trust. 

You both walk in trust with Me.  Few have been able to so thoroughly abandon to Me.  Few have so completely surrendered their lives, their dreams, their hopes in order to follow Me.  This may sound absurd, but it is true.  The Saints have all abandoned as you have, but most souls do not.  They love Me, but not without conditions. 

Today your Holy Mother spoke to you, child, about your life.  You did not consider what it might cost you; you only did not want to know the specifics for fear of pride. 

Both you and little one hold tight to Me and walk where I walk, do what I ask, and do so like small children, confident in their Father.

I bless you both for your faith, trust, and love.

I bless you.

It is I, Jesus.  Child, write.

Today I come and thank you for your patience and obedience.

Child, it is difficult for you and little one, I know, but this week you will see how difficult it is in so many families in your country.  In other nations families always lived together or in close proximity.  They are together every day; grandparents, aunts, uncles, all taking care of the children and each other.  This is normal and they would not understand, or want, any other way of life.  Your nation has had little of this except in the mountainous areas.  Their family life is still practiced in the old ways. 

So many children are being raised by strangers in your nation.  No wonder they cannot find the security they need.  Now with the dissolution of the family many grandparents are the sole custodian and role model for their grandchildren.  The parents of these children have simply walked away from their responsibility, and, also, as the economy continues to fracture the young parents are having to move back with their parents in order to have a place to live and food to eat.  This will continue to grow and it will help to re-establish the family unit.

I bless every effort made in growing in understanding of the problems of the young.

I bless you.

It is I, Jesus.  Child, write.

Today I come and thank you for your love and generosity.

Child, you and little one always put others before yourselves, and today was no exception.  You saw to the comfort of others and you trusted in Me to make everything work out.  I bless your generous hearts.

I bless every effort made to see to the needs of My children.

I bless you.

It is I, Jesus.  Child, write.

Today I come and speak of absolute authority.

Child, you have spoken with Adam about many things today.  You have spoken about formula and prayer from the heart.  You have spoken of papal authority and those who oppose it. 

All authority comes from Me.  Only I have absolute authority, for if someone oversteps the authority I have given them, I can and will remove them.  I teach respect for authority, true authority, for it is mandated by the Father.  Authority cannot be abused, for to do so will eventually bring about rebellion and disobedience to all authority.  The world is in a time of transition.  Those who through pride believe they have absolute authority will soon find that they must bow before God.  The pride of a few is causing rebellion all over the earth.  War is so commonplace that it is virtually ignored.  It has become a way of life.  In some areas generations have never known peace.  Those who have abused the authority granted them will soon find themselves powerless before the Almighty.  Pray for these for they are in for a rude awakening.  Pray that this time of transition may be brief, and those who truly seek Peace will stand united before God and man.

I bless every effort made to bring peace into every situation.

I bless you.

It is I, Jesus.  Child, write.

Today I come to speak of trust. 

Today you both have acted with trust in Me.  You went about your day doing what was necessary, and, child, you paced yourself this afternoon even though there were things you wanted to do.  You trust in Me to provide time and energy for the things that need to be done, or you want to do, if you are obedient to My daily guidance.  You know that through obedience all things are accomplished in a timely and proper fashion.

I ask you and little one to share the lessons you learn and help others to grow in trust.

I bless every effort made to grow in love and trust.

I bless you.

It is I, Jesus.  Child, write.

Today I come to speak of fidelity.

Child, this day has been one of ups and downs.  You wondered if the call you received was the trust I was asking of you.  Yes.  The retreats will be, and you are right that many of the people want everything provided for them.  You were not upset about the turn of events and have given it over to Me.  You are thinking over what is possible and what may be beyond you.  You weigh health in both you and little one, financial provision, and if anyone really cares.  You have wondered if you should just let it all lay because you cannot see the path you are on.  Your wondering is not infidelity, for if things would open suddenly you would respond quickly to do My Will and to help your neighbor.  (Jesus lifted my head.)

Child, you and little one have succeeded in doing My Will.  I ask that you be patient and allow Me to unfold all things.  Until I open the way fully, do as you have contemplated.  Rest physically and spiritually, the both of you.  Your daily lives are works of mercy, love and perseverance.

I bless every effort made to gather souls with Me.

I bless you.

It is I, Jesus.  Child, write.

Today I come and thank you for your joy, your peace, and your trust. 

Little children, you do not know how you delight the Heart of your Father in Heaven.  You seldom fuss about not having this or that.  You make do with what you have, and even come up with unique ways to improve what you have.  Today you have done small tasks, but you were delighted with the results.  You take what is old, you refurbish it, and delight in your work. 

If My children would worry less about acquiring what is new or different, and just be at peace with what they have, they, too, would find joy in being creative.  The joy you two share in each other and what you do for each other is a treasure that nothing that the world has to offer can match. 

Be blessed, little children, and continue on the path of Wisdom.

I bless every effort made to share what you have learned and what you have with others.

I bless you.

It is I, Jesus.  Child, write.

Today I come and celebrate with you the Gift that the Father wanted for His children.  By His Will on Holy Thursday I instituted the Sacrament of My Body and Blood.  I gave to you My Very Self; Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity as a remedy for your Souls, and as a way that I may be with you in an intimate way, and you with Me; God drawing His children to Him and sharing with them in an unprecedented way. 

How many Souls have come to live in union with the Most Holy Trinity through this Sacrament of Love?

I ask My children to rejoice in this Gift and to come often to Me in Holy Communion.  Come with your hearts prepared to receive your God.  Offer to Me your love, your joys, your sorrows, your littleness, and I will nourish you, heal you, rejoice with you, shed tears with you, and make you great in the Kingdom.

I bless every effort made to share with others your knowledge and your love for Me in this Sacrament.

I bless you.

It is I, Jesus.  Child, write.

Today I come and thank you for your trust, your peace, your grateful hearts.

Child, you and little one place your trust in Me in a way that few have been able to do.  You are at peace with whatever My Will is.  If I provide for your needs, you rejoice, and if you have to wait upon Me to provide, you rejoice and have peace.  You have understood that I provide all that is needed when it is needed, and if something is slow in coming, you realize that there truly is no need for it yet. 

How many in your generation would drive an automobile in the condition and age as yours without worry simply because I say it will run until you need another?  You have taken it on long trips asking Me first if you should take it, and when I reply ‘Yes’ you give it not another thought, and at the end of the trip you thank Me with a sincere heart for My protection and the gift of having transportation.  Because of your trust I am now providing for you what I promised.

I ask that you ask Monsignor’s permission to keep this gift that I am providing through the generosity of others.  You are, both of you, the miracle that others ask to see.  May eyes be opened to see and may they learn from you.

I bless you both.  Rejoice.  Alleluia.  Amen.

It is I, Jesus.  Child, write.

Today I come and thank you for your love. 

Today you have both served Me by going about your day doing your work in peace, joy, and trust in Me.  Yesterday I spoke of your trust and how I make provision for all your needs because of this trust.  Each day you ask Me to be with you and so I am.

Love unites Me to you and you to Me.  Love and trust enables you to walk with Me at My pace.  I bless you for your confidence in Me, for your perseverance in doing what I ask of you.

I bless every effort made to walk with Me, to gather souls with Me for the Kingdom.

I bless you.
