Jesus Does The Will of His Father…Our Eternal Father

Jesus Does The Will of His Father…Our Eternal Father

JESUS DOES THE WILL OF THE FATHER

Of My Passion, I want you to consider above all, the bitterness that was caused by My knowing the sins, that darkening the mind of man, lead him to aberrations Most of the time these sins are accepted as a fruit of natural inclinations that, it is said, cannot be opposed by one’s own will.  Today, many souls are in grave sin, blaming others or fate, without the possibility of getting rid of them.  I saw this in Gethsemane and I know the great evil that My soul would absorb.  So many are lost like that and how I suffered for them!

Thus by My example, by washing their feet and becoming their Food, I taught My Apostles to mutually support each other.  The hour was approaching for which the Son of God had been made man and Redeemer of the human race; for which He was going to still His Blood and give His Life for the world.

At that moment I wanted to be in prayer and give Myself to the Will of My Father……It was then that My Will as a man conquered the natural resistance to the great suffering prepared for Me by Our Father, who you see was hurting more than Myself.  Then, among those lost souls, I surrendered My Own Soul to repair that, which had already become corrupt.  My Omnipotence can do all, but wants littleness upon which to add of the other, and this littleness, I Myself offer it with infinite Love.

My Passion……..what a bottomless abyss of bitterness within which it enclosed itself!

How mistakenly remote is he who believes he comprehends it, yet only thinks of the terrible sufferings of My Body.

Dear souls, learn from your Model that the only necessary thing, even if your nature rebels, is to submit yourself with humility and to surrender yourself to fulfil the Will of God.

I also wanted to teach souls that all-important acts must be prepared and revitalised through prayer.  In prayer the soul is fortified for the most difficult things and God communicates with the soul, gives it advice, and inspires it even when it (the soul) is not aware of it.

I withdrew to the Garden with three of My Disciples, in order to teach them that the three Powers of the soul should accompany and help them in prayer.

Remember, from memory, the divine benefits, the perfection of God: HIS KINDNESS, HIS POWER, HIS MERCY, and the Love that He has for you.  Afterwards, look with understanding on how to correspond to the marvels that He has done for you…….Through prayer, in your retreat and silence, allow your will to be moved to do more and the best for God, and to be consecrated for the salvation of souls, whether by means of your apostolic work or by your humble and hidden life.

Prostrate yourselves humbly as creatures in the presence of their Creator, and adore His designs over you, whatever they may be, committing your will to the Divine One.

In this way I offered Myself to fulfil the work of redeeming the world.  Ah! What a moment it was when I felt all those torments come over Me, the torments I was to suffer in My Passion:  the slander, the insults, the scourging, the kicks, the Crown of Thorns, the thirst, the cross……

All that passed before My eyes at the same time that an intense pain hurt My Heart; the offences, the sins, and the abominations that would be committed in the passing of time.  And I not only saw them, but I felt reinvested with all those horrors, and in this way I presented Myself to My Celestial Father to implore Mercy.

I offered Myself as a lily to calm His Anger and appease His Wrath.  Nevertheless, with so many crimes and so many sins, My human nature experienced a mortal agony to the point of sweating blood.

Is it possible for this anguish and this Blood to be useless for so many souls?…….My Love was the origin of My Passion.  If I had not wanted it, who would have been able to touch Me?  I wanted it and to accomplish this, I used the cruellest amongst men.

Before suffering, I knew in Myself all suffering and I could evaluate it entirely.  But then, when I wanted to suffer, in addition to full knowledge and appraisal, I had the human sensation of all sufferings.  I took all of them.

Speaking of My Passion, I cannot go into so much detail.  Because of your human nature, you could not begin to understand the enormous extent of the pains that I have suffered.

Yes, I illuminate you, but I stay within a limit beyond which you cannot advance.

But today the world will know more than I have allowed up to now, because My Father wants it this way.  For that reason, a ray of love flourishes in My Church because of all the changing circumstances that took Me from the Garden to Calvary.  More than to anyone else, I manifest My Passion to the loved ones I had in The Garden.  They are able to mention something that adapts to the mind of present-day travellers.  And if they can, they should do it; For you and for many others, in comfort for the souls and for the Glory of The Holy Trinity who desires that My Suffering in Gethsemane be known.

My soul is sad until death.  While the sadness of not being physically well could be the cause of death, I wanted to experience the sadness of the spirit, which consisted of the complete absence of the influence of The Divinity and the heartbreaking presence of the causes of My Passion.

In My Spirit, which was agonizing unto death, were present all the reasons that impelled Me to bring Love to earth.  Foremost were the offences made against My suffering Divinity as a man, yet with the consciousness of God.  You cannot find anything like this type of suffering because the man who sins understands, with My Light, the part that corresponds to him and many times, imperfectly, he did not see what sin is like in front of Me.  For that reason, it is clear that only God can know the importance of an offence done to Him.

Nevertheless, humanity should be able to offer complete knowledge, true sorrow, and repentance to The Divinity, and I can let humanity do so whenever it wishes.  I do this in fact by offering My knowledge that has worked within Me, a man, a human who bore the offences against God.

This was My wish: that through Me, the repented sinner would have the way of presenting to His God the knowledge of the committed offence, and that I, in My Divinity, could also receive the full understanding of what he has done against Me.

Enough for today you do not know how much you console Me when you give yourself to Me with entire abandonment……

I was sad unto death because I could see everywhere the huge accumulation of the offences committed.  And if for one I experienced a death without comparison, what could I have experienced for the combination of all the offences?  “ Sad is My Soul unto death………” a sadness which produced in Me the abandonment of all strength; a sadness which had as a centre in Me The Divinity towards which would converge the tide of the faults and the stench of souls corroded by all types of vices.  For that reason, I was at the same time target and arrow – as God, the target; ad Man, the arrow.  As soon as I had absorbed all sin, I appeared before My Father as the only offender.  Greater sadness than this could not exist, and I wanted to take all of it, for the Love of the Father, and for Mercy to all of you.

If he does not pay attention to this matter, man ponders in vain over the meaning of theses words, which include all My Essence as God and Man.  Look at Me in this gigantic prison of spirit.  Do I not deserve love if I struggled and suffered so much?  Do I not deserve for creatures to count on Me as their own, knowing that I give Myself entirely without reserve?  Drink all of you from My inexhaustible fountain of goodness.  Drink! I offer you My Sadness in The Garden; give Me your sadness, all your sadness.  I want to make of your sadness a bouquet of violets, whose perfume is constantly directed towards My Divinity.

“Father, if it is possible, take this Cup away from Me, but let not My Will but Yours be done.”  I said this in the height of bitterness, when the load that weighed upon Me had become so bloody that My Soul found itself in the most unbelievable darkness.  I said it to the Eternal Father because, upon assuming all the blame, I presented Myself before Him as the only sinner against whom all His Divine Justice was discharged.  And feeling deprived of My Divinity, only humanity appeared before Me.

Take from Me, O Father, this extremely bitter chalice that you present to Me, and that I accepted for Your Love when I came to this world.  I have arrived at a point in which I do not even recognize Myself.  You, O Father, Who loves Me has made sin My inheritance and this makes My presence before You unbearable.  The ingratitude of human beings is known to Me but how will I endure seeing Myself alone?  My God, have pity on the great solitude in which I find Myself.  Why do even You want to abandon Me?  What help shall I find then in such great desolation?  Why do You also strike Me this way?  Yes, You deprive Me of You.  I feel like I am going down in such an abyss that I do not even recognize your hand in such a tragic situation.  The Blood that oozes out of My Body gives You testimony of My annihilation under Your powerful hand.

Thus, I cried; I fell.  But then I continued:  It is just, Holy Eternal Father, that You do of Me what You want.  My life is not Mine, it belongs totally to You.  I do not want that My Will be done, but rather Yours.  I have accepted a death on The Cross, I accept also the apparent death of My Divinity.

It is just.  All this I should give You and, before everything, I should offer You the holocaust of My Divinity which unites Me to You.  Yes, Father, with the Blood that

The Eternal Rewards Of Jesus Christ

The Eternal Rewards Of Jesus Christ

What does your eternal future hold? For most Christians, the blessed hope is that once the rapture occurs or they depart from this world after death, they will spend eternity in heaven with Jesus Christ. For those who trust in Him, this is true.

However, few Christians realize they will also face judgment before Jesus Christ. Not judgment for our sins, which were cleansed by Christ’s blood on the cross. But judgment for our works here on earth. Jesus will hold each of us accountable for the deeds performed in our earthly lives, and although our eternal destiny is never in question, the size and scope of our reward is.

Jesus Christ as the Ultimate Judge

The scriptures are filled with references to the ultimate judgment of our works, yet somehow many Christians have either failed to understand, or have chosen to ignore, what the bible says. Nevertheless, we will be judged. Paul makes this clear in his letter to the Corinthians:

”For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body.” 2 Corinthians 5:10 (NLT)

Jesus confirms Paul’s assertion, revealing that each of us will be held accountable for every idle word we speak!

”And I tell you this, you must give an account on judgment day for every idle word you speak.” Matthew 12:36 (NLT)

Not Everyone Will Have the Same Status in Heaven

This leads us to another myth which has taken hold of the Christian community – that everyone will enjoy equal standing in heaven. This is not true. Although God loves each of us without end, some will be given positions of higher status, authority, and responsibility than others. In the Book of Matthew, Jesus reveals this truth:

”So if you ignore the least commandment and teach others to do the same, you will be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven. But anyone who obeys God’s laws and teaches them will be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven.” Matthew 5:19 (NLT)

”But many who seem to be important now will be the least important then, and those who are considered least here will be the greatest then.” Matthew 19:30 (NLT)

If everyone is equal in heaven, then how can some be “greatest” while others are “least”? This is not a contradiction, but an indication of the true nature of heaven. Whether or not our earthly deeds are deserving of gain or loss is completely dependent upon what we do in our earthly lives. Heaven will simply be a place where true justice will reign.

Eternal Treasures in Heaven

Jesus, knowing the nature of heaven and the rewards that await us, discouraged us from becoming captives of this world and its fleeting pleasures. Instead, he encouraged us to focus on the accumulation of heavenly treasures:

”Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.” Matthew 6:19-21 (NLT)

Our treasures in heaven are eternal. Why then do so many of us spend a lifetime hoarding earthly treasures – cars, houses, stocks, and bonds – when everyone of us knows they are only temporary in nature? We can’t take our earthly treasures to heaven, but we can take our heavenly rewards. And if any doubt persists as to how the treasures of heaven compare to the treasures of this world, listen to what Paul has to say on the subject:

”That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, ‘No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.'” 1 Corinthians 2:9 (NLT)

Despite this knowledge, millions aspire to live in earthly mansions, while Jesus continues to prepare for us our own heavenly mansions – eternal abodes that will never catch fire, flood, get termites, or experience any of the headaches of earthly dwellings:

”There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you?” John 14:2 (NLT)

Why then, are so many of us concerned with where we live?

Christ Will Award Us with Crowns

Some of our heavenly treasure will take the form of rewards we receive from Jesus Christ.

”For no one can lay any foundation other than the one we already have – Jesus Christ. Anyone who builds on that foundation may use a variety of materials – gold, silver, jewels, wood, hay, or straw. But on the judgment day, fire will reveal what kind of work each builder has done. The fire will show if a person’s work has any value. If the work survives, that builder will receive a reward. But if the work is burned up, the builder will suffer great loss. The builder will be saved, but like someone barely escaping through a wall of flames.” 1 Corinthians 3:11-15 (NLT)

For the Christian, belief in Jesus Christ is only a beginning. This is the foundation of our holy existence, and no one can lay a foundation other than Christ. Upon this foundation, we are expected to build a portfolio of works which benefit the Lord. Not one of these works is necessary for our salvation, but if we truly believe in Him, it will be our pleasure to perform such works. On the day of judgment, each work will be tested to see if it has eternal value. Only that which has everlasting value will result in reward.

So how do we know what works will have everlasting value? We must remember it is not our deed alone the Lord will judge, but the motive which caused us to perform the deed in the first place. The Lord, who knows the deepest secrets of our hearts and minds, will know the motives upon which our earthly lives were built. And the only motive which will result in a reward is one that desires glory for Jesus Christ.

Among the many rewards we’re eligible to receive, the bible specifically mentions five crowns:

The Crown of Victory

”Don’t you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win! All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize. So I run with purpose in every step. I am not just shadowboxing. I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should. Otherwise, I fear that after preaching to others I myself might be disqualified.” 1 Corinthians 9:25 (NLT)

The prize to which Paul refers is a crown. This crown is reserved for those who, through careful discipline, have overcome the desires of the flesh. Through means of the Holy Spirit, they have managed to gradually wane themselves from the power of the temptations of this world. Just as an athlete trains to perfect his performance in an athletic contest, Christians must train themselves to overcome the desires of the flesh.

If you want to win this crown, make sure to listen to and abide by the Holy Spirit within you. Train yourself so that your every thought, feeling, and action is measured and judged in accordance to God’s will for your life.

The Crown of Rejoicing

”Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stay true to the Lord. I love you and long to see you, dear friends, for you are my joy and the crown I receive for my work.” Philippians 4:1 (NLT)

”After all, what gives us hope and joy, and what will be our proud reward and crown as we stand before our Lord Jesus when he returns? It is you! Yes, you are our pride and joy.” 1 Thessalonians 2:19-20 (NLT)

This crown is reserved for those whose efforts have led to others becoming believers in the Lord Jesus Christ. As Paul states, this crown will be a source of pride and joy for all of eternity, represented not only in the form of a crown, but in the form of actual fellow Christians who will be a source of joy for the Lord for all of eternity.

If you want to win this crown, make sure to share the Gospel of Christ with others whenever God presents an opportunity.

The Crown of Righteousness

”And now the prize awaits me – the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give me on the day of his return. And the prize is not just for me but for all who eagerly look forward to his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:8 (NLT)

This crown is reserved for those who eagerly and patiently await the promised return of Jesus Christ. Throughout the scriptures, Jesus encourages us to be good and faithful servants, prepared for the master’s return. One day, He will come “like a thief in the night” – unexpectedly – and only those who have lived their lives in daily anticipation of this moment will be awarded this crown.

If you want to win this crown, make sure to live every day of your life with the constant expectation that Christ could return at a moment’s notice.

The Crown of Life

”God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.” James 1:12 (NLT)

”Don’t be afraid of what you are about to suffer. The devil will throw some of you into prison to test you. You will suffer for ten days. But if you remain faithful even when facing death, I will give you the crown of life.” Revelation 2:10 (NLT)

This crown is reserved for those who endure testing, temptation, persecution, suffering, and martyrdom for Jesus Christ. Believing in Christ
