April 27, 2008

                Jesus:

                I am all wise

                My wisdom reaches to the earth in those
                    who open their hearts to My Voice

                Everything has its place in the pattern of
                    divine providence

                It is My Plan to put you in the world
                It is My Plan to give you these talents
                It is My Purpose to use the Shepherds of Christ to
                    help to bring to completion the mission My Mother
                    began at Fatima

                It is the Plan of the Father, Mary would be
                    My Mother

               

                R. Mary is the Mother of God —
                Mary was made perfect by God
                God is all holy and all perfect —
                Mary to be the Mother of God must therefore
                    be all holy and all perfect —
                God made Mary the perfect woman.
                God chose Mary to be the Mother of God.
                Jesus is sinless, Jesus the essence
                    of holiness —

 

                To be more and more in the image and likeness
                of God a person has a lifetime to grow in
                greater holiness and learn more and more to
                not sin —
                Adam and Eve were disobedient
                Adam and Eve were rebellious
                The opposite of rebelliousness is holiness

 

 

                Sin is disorder
                Disorder is because of original sin
                Mary is sinless —

                God preserved Mary from both original
                    and actual sin —

                Mary had a human mother and father —

                    All the descendants of Adam and Eve, except
                Mary, had original sin at the moment of
                conception in the womb of their mothers.

                Mary was preserved from original sin from
                    the very moment of her conception in the
                    womb of her mother.

                Mary did not need to be cleansed of original sin —
                Mary never contracted this stain of sin —

                This is the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception
                    of the Mother of God —

                Mary told Bernadette she is the Immaculate
                    Conception —

                Mary was preserved from the stain of
                    original sin from the first moment of
                    her conception in the womb of her
                    mother —

                This is not the same as the Virgin Birth
                    of Christ — Christ was conceived in the
                    womb of Mary by the Holy Spirit.

                As the goodness of parents brings honor
                    to the children —
                    so too the sinfulness of parents
                    bring shame to children —

                Think of the parents of today sinning by
                    divorce after divorce against the
                    Church and
                    parents killing babies —
                    like God doesn't see their sin and actions —

                Jesus died for these sins on the cross —

   

1 John 1: 8-10

If we say, ‘We have no sin,’
we are deceiving ourselves,
and truth has no place in us;
if we acknowledge our sins,
he is trustworthy and upright,
so that he will forgive our sins
and will cleanse us from all evil.
If we say, ‘We have never sinned,’
we make him a liar,
and his word has no place in us.

   

                God gave Mary the fullness of grace —
                Christ is the source of grace to all men.
                Christ took His flesh from Mary —
                Christ was formed in her womb

                The more we are one with Christ —
                    the more intimate with Him —
                    the more we share in His grace —

                Mary received the fullness of grace not
                    granted to any other creature —
                    Mary was Immaculately conceived
                    Mary is the Mother of God —
                    Jesus ascended to heaven
                    Mary was assumed into heaven —
                    Mary is a Virgin
                    Mary conceived Christ as a Virgin

                First we see the image of Mary at Clearwater —

    

 

                    the sign of the rainbow

                When the human race was so corrupt at
                    the time of Noah — God found
                    favor with Noah —
                    He flooded the earth and he made
                        this promise

     

Genesis 9: 12-16

    ‘And this’, God said, ‘is the sign of the covenant which I now make between myself and you and every living creature with you for all ages to come: I now set my bow in the clouds and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. When I gather the clouds over the earth and the bow appears in the clouds, I shall recall the covenant between myself and you and every living creature, in a word all living things, and never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all living things. When the bow is in the clouds I shall see it and call to mind the eternal covenant between God and every living creature on earth, that is, all living things.’ 

 

Genesis 7: 11-12

    In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, and on the seventeenth day of the month, that very day all the springs of the great deep burst through, and the sluices of heaven opened. And heavy rain fell on earth for forty days and forty nights.

      

 

        

 

Genesis 7: 11-24

    In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, and on the seventeenth day of the month, that very day all the springs of the great deep burst through, and the sluices of heaven opened. And heavy rain fell on earth for forty days and forty nights.

    That very day Noah and his sons Shem, Ham and Japheth boarded the ark, with Noah’s wife and the three wives of his sons, and with them every species of wild animal, every species of cattle, every species of creeping things that creep along the ground, every species of bird, everything that flies, everything with wings. One pair of all that was alive and had the breath of life boarded the ark with Noah, and those that went aboard were a male and female of all that was alive, as God had commanded him. 
    Then Yahweh shut him in.

The flood lasted forty days on earth. The waters swelled, lifting the ark until it floated off the ground. The waters rose, swelling higher above the ground, and the ark drifted away over the waters. The waters rose higher and higher above the ground until all the highest mountains under the whole of heaven were submerged. The waters reached their peak fifteen cubits above the submerged mountains. And all living things that stirred on earth perished; birds, cattle, wild animals, all the creatures swarming over the earth, and all human beings. Everything with the least breath of life in its nostrils, everything on dry land, died. Every living thing on the face of the earth was wiped out, people, animals, creeping things and birds; they were wiped off the earth and only Noah was left, and those with him in the ark. The waters maintained their level on earth for a hundred and fifty days.

 

Genesis 9: 12-16

    ‘And this’, God said, ‘is the sign of the covenant which I now make between myself and you and every living creature with you for all ages to come: I now set my bow in the clouds and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. When I gather the clouds over the earth and the bow appears in the clouds, I shall recall the covenant between myself and you and every living creature, in a word all living things, and never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all living things. When the bow is in the clouds I shall see it and call to mind the eternal covenant between God and every living creature on earth, that is, all living things.’ 

     

Matthew 4: 1-2

Then Jesus was led by the Spirit out into the desert to be put to the test by the devil. He fasted for forty days and forty nights, after which he was hungry,

       

  

From Tell My People

The Holy Spirit

Jesus: "My beloved friend, tell My people to pray daily to the Holy Spirit. They are to pray for an increase in His gifts. My people must realize that the Holy Spirit comes to transform them. The Spirit desires to transform you more and more according to My image. Those who are docile to His touch become increasingly shaped in My likeness. He performs this marvel within Mary's Immaculate Heart. The more one dwells in My Mother's Heart, the more active are the workings of the Spirit. The Spirit leads Mary to place you within My own Heart. In both Our Hearts, then, your transformation continues. The more you are formed after My own Heart, the more I lead you to the bosom of My Father. Tell My people all this. Tell them to pray daily for a greater appreciation of these wondrous gifts. I am Lord and Master. All who come to My Heart will be on fire to receive the gifts of the Spirit in ever greater measure! I love and bless My people!"

Reflection: The Holy Spirit is given to us to fashion us ever more according to the likeness of Jesus. And the more we are like Jesus, the more Jesus leads us to the Father. Do we, each day, pray to the Holy Spirit to be more open to His transforming influence? Do we strive each day to grow in union with Mary? The greater our union with our Mother, the spouse of the Holy Spirit, the greater is the transforming action of the Holy Spirit within us.

                Mary is a Virgin
                Mary and Joseph though married did
                    not break that Virginity.

                Mary obeyed the will of God
                Christ is the true Son of God
                Mary is the Mother of God

   

                    From the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Virgin most prudent,
Virgin most venerable,
Virgin most renowned,
Virgin most powerful,
Virgin most merciful,
Virgin most faithful,

    

                When Mary appeared on April 13 —
                    the whole Church on the left
                    side was filled with a yellow light —

                It is that light I know like a reflective
                    glass and cast in a glow of yellow —
                    it is so awesome —
                    I cannot even describe it in earthly terms

                Christ came — the Son of God to take
                    away the sins of the world —

                When I received a rosary on Wednesday this week
                    the beauty of that celestial veil I cannot
                    even explain as I described the true
                    presence of God in the Blessed Sacrament —

                Christ came that all men might be
                    reborn spiritually of the Holy
                    Spirit —

                Christ would not be born in a womb
                    with original sin —

                Christ came to take away the sins of men.
                Mary is a Virgin
                God picked Joseph to be her husband
                But Mary remained a Virgin

                Christ had the protection and care of
                    a human father.

                Had Mary not been married to Joseph
                    some may have considered her
                    an adulteress and she could
                    have been stoned to death.

                Mary and Joseph were married,
                    but Mary remained a Virgin —

                Mary was the Mother of God
                Mary conceived through the power of
                    the Holy Spirit

                God is imparting to us in the Shepherds of Christ
                    His vision

                Seeing through His eyes in a world
                    who is tainted — TRUTH

                What if Joseph fought Mary — would
                    God have put up with this
                    Joseph supported Mary

                Pentecost is about the
                    Holy Spirit coming to help us —
                        support us
                        give us wisdom
                        tell the truth —
                    The truth of God in us —
                    God counseling us

                40 days God flooded the earth
                40 days Christ was in the desert
                When He came out the devil tried
                    to tempt Him

    

Matthew 4: 1-11

Then Jesus was led by the Spirit out into the desert to be put to the test by the devil. He fasted for forty days and forty nights, after which he was hungry, and the tester came and said to him, ‘If you are Son of God, tell these stones to turn into loaves.’ But he replied, ‘Scripture says: 

    Human beings live not on bread alone 
    but on every word 
        that comes from the mouth of God.’ 

The devil then took him to the holy city and set him on the parapet of the Temple. ‘If you are Son of God,’ he said, ‘throw yourself down; for scripture says: 

    He has given his angels orders about you, 
   
and they will carry you in their arms 
    in case you trip over a stone.’ 

Jesus said to him, ‘Scripture also says: 

    Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’ 

Next, taking him to a very high mountain, the devil showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendour. And he said to him, ‘I will give you all these, if you fall at my feet and do me homage.’ Then Jesus replied, ‘Away with you, Satan! For scripture says: 

    The Lord your God is the one 
        to whom you must do homage, 
    him alone you must serve.’ 

Then the devil left him, and suddenly angels appeared and looked after him.

     

                Then we celebrate the 40 days of
                    Resurrection to
                    Pentecost
               
                Christ ascended into heaven
                    9 days before Pentecost

    

 Luke 24:50-53

Then he took them out as far as the outskirts of Bethany, and raising his hands he blessed them. Now as he blessed them, he withdrew from them and was carried up to heaven. They worshipped him and then went back to Jerusalem full of joy; and they were continually in the Temple praising God.

     

Acts 2: 1-4

When Pentecost day came round, they had all met together, when suddenly there came from heaven a sound as of a violent wind which filled the entire house in which they were sitting; and there appeared to them tongues as of fire; these separated and came to rest on the head of each of them. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak different languages as the Spirit gave them power to express themselves. 

 

                God is ordered
                God shows us sin is disordered

                When Adam and Eve sinned —
                    the weather became disordered
                    the animals were affected
                    man has tendencies of sin —
                    rebelliousness ————> rather than obedience

                Disobedience is
                    disorder
                    in heaven there is perfect
                        obedience
                        poverty
                        chastity

                People in religious orders are called
                    to live greater poverty,
                    chastity, obedience in the world

                People in religious orders are to
                    help prepare others for heaven through
                    their lives of being deeply
                    united to Christ and modeling
                    their lives after Jesus and Mary

                Mary — the sinless one —
                    her image first in Clearwater
                        New Eve

  

 

                Next Jesus the Son of God —
                    the New Adam —
                    His Image in Clearwater

 

February 5, 2001

   

                How we offend God by not giving Him
                    the honor and respect, praise and
                    love that is His due —

                He called Clearwater and China
                    retreats to do this — to praise and
                    love and honor Him and Mary's image
                    and Jesus' image even appeared
                    in Clearwater
