Messenger: Jesus wishes all to read the entire chapter, John 16. Included here are verses 1-15.
I have told you all this
so that you may not fall away.
They will expel you
from the synagogues,
and indeed the time is coming
when anyone who kills you
will think he is doing
a holy service to God.
They will do these things
because they have never known
either the Father or me.
But I have told you all this,
so that when the time for it comes
you may remember that I told you.
The coming of the Paraclete
I did not tell you this from the beginning,
because I was with you;
but now I am going to the one
who sent me.
Not one of you asks,
'Where are you going?'
Yet you are sad at heart
because I have told you this.
Still, I am telling you the truth:
it is for your own good that I am going,
because unless I go,
the Paraclete will not come to you;
but if I go,
I will send him to you.
And when he comes,
he will show the world how wrong it was,
and about who was in the right,
and about judgement:
in that they refuse to believe in me;
about who was in the right:
in that I am going to the Father
and you will see me no more;
in that the prince of this world
is already condemned.
I still have many things to say to you
but they would be too much for you
to bear now.
However, when the Spirit of truth comes
he will lead you to the complete truth,
since he will not be speaking
of his own accord,
but will say only what he has been told;
and he will reveal to you
the things to come.
He will glorify me,
since all he reveals to you
will be taken from what is mine.
Everything the Father has is mine;
that is why I said:
all he reveals to you
will be taken from what is mine.
Jesus speaks: My dear child, I speak to you of lying. In the end there will be no more lies. Man must live by the truth. I speak of a man at work who is under the authority of another. If in a business setting men are dishonest, if they are not moral in their business dealings, then those beneath them will have tremendous problems if they are trying to do what is right. Many men have spent sleepless nights because of the lies of the boss concerning money or other matters. One cannot look another in the face and out and out lie and feel good about it. However, many times Satan will create confusion in a just man's soul trying to get the person to feel he has sinned when he has not. The bottom line is this. If you did not lie, if you have tried to do all to arrive at the truth and others above you lie and cheat or steal, you will not be held accountable for their lies. You must seek after the truth, but you cannot control the actions of others. I am not telling you to ever look the other way. Many men have spent sleepless nights trying to figure out the way they must conduct their lives.
I ask you to be pure. I ask you to operate in love. I ask you to pray. I ask you to lead others to the truth. I ask you to love Me.
Many times after one's confession, Satan will work to make the pure soul feel guilty. Satan is at work always trying to confuse your thoughts. As the days proceed onward, he will become stronger and you will have to battle him more and more. You must do what you feel God is telling you to do. I ask you to pray fervently to do God's will.
The young people of the earth are misinformed. They think they can watch evil talk shows, movies with sin on the screen before them, and have all this not affect their lives. You must watch that which is pure. Your world has become very tainted in their ways. If someone tells you to kill another, you know it is wrong. Once you begin to bend the Ten Commandments where does it stop? For example, sometimes a married man tells himself that when he is not loved by his wife, it is permissible to have sexual intercourse with his secretary.
A child that wishes to use drugs may lie to his parents, teachers and everyone else in order to do what he wants.
A person that wishes to do God's will must pray fervently to God to guide him in his decisions.
It is never right to steal money from another person. Satan will create bizarre cases to try to bend the rules.
Many times people who are motivated by Satan create the most bizarre cases to see if they can catch the Church in an error.
The bottom line is they are coming, very many times, from an unwillingness to do what the Church teaches. They want to live the way they want. Consequently, they try to discredit the institution to make themselves right.
I give you the Commandments and My word. Satan will continue more and more in this evil age to discredit the truth and create problems by confusing the issues.
The more one has practiced lying and cheating, engaged in sexual contact that is sinful, the easier it is to so act.
It is very damaging to the youth when they watch evil before them and hear alluring songs, etc.
It is very damaging to the youth when they see music videos containing sinful material.
You cannot control the world. The men whipped Me, they committed ill deeds against Me. To argue with the men that whipped Me would have done no good.
They had tried Me, they had found Me guilty. I was the victim. They put Me to death.
Today your world is teaching people to think of themselves many times as victims so that they can excuse themselves and feel they are not at fault.
You must live in the truth. If you dwell in My Heart, you live in Me. I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. They will try you before the Sanhedrin. I will give you your defense.
The Reign of My Heart is at hand, but first must come the wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Keep your children pure from an early age, for the world filled with its lies will try to fill their souls soon enough.
The philosophy being this:
'Come to me, all you who labour and are overburdened, and I will give you rest.
Jesus speaks: You will have to live with the evil in the world, you cannot control the actions of others. You must pray for your Church and the world, and do all you can to promote good.
Your job is to help to lead the souls home to My Heart.
To decide how to act morally is not always easy in an evil age.
The human soul is most fragile. It must be fed the truth. Little children are being told about evil and its ways before they know the truth.
I tell you this, you must lead the world into consecration.
In your conscience you must be right with your God.
The period when you struggle with the right decisions is a period in which you can grow tremendously.
Eve may have not wanted the fruit of the tree. The devil lured her into wanting it with his fallacious reasoning. Once she thought she wanted it, she ate freely and disobeyed her God. The devil lures men into sin. The graphic details of the television and videos lure the youth into wanting many things they never would have known about.
Mary cries for her children. You must lead souls into consecration and tell them to pray the rosary. Tell all the people to wear a scapular.
It will become more and more difficult to defend yourselves in this evil age. You will need the weapons Mary gives you as defense against the evil one.
Mary is the Mother of all, not two or three, or some. Mary is the Mother of all God's children, the ones engaging in evil, the ones struggling to stay pure.
Think of how it is with your children. When you feel one is about to "fall in a pit" you pray for him the most. Mary comes, she appears to ask you to pray for her children.
I love you so much, be at peace. My way is peace and joy. Satan creates problems that are confusing to get you in a net. You must do the Father's will, do not give in to Satan if he taunts you.
Consecrate your hearts and live in My truth.
My chosen ones, many will not understand your ways because theirs have become so far from the truth.
You must live according to the Father's will.
I love you, Jesus.
Jesus speaks: I speak to you of trust.
My child, since evil has entered the world one cannot trust everyone, because some act in evil ways.
In the Reign of the Sacred Heart all will be able to trust one another. There will be this great period of peace.
As it is today, one must decide if the other is truly living as they should . . . The one who prays and tries to live according to God's will, will make the best choices.
If you all would live according to God's will, you would all live in great harmony.
In consecration one gives his heart to Me. I am the Truth, the more you dwell in My Heart, the more the truth will be in you. One must judge rightly what is right, what is wrong. The more you know the truth and realize how the world has veered from the truth, the more necessary it is to judge what is right and what is wrong so that you can make the correct choice.
In trying to see what is right and what is wrong in situations, you will experience that people will not wish you to ask questions. This can be from the evil one. You must know why you are doing things, but you must trust as far as prudently possible. Your children can be led astray. Yet children do not wish you to question. Someone may want you to do something immediately, but they do not wish you to question. You have the right to question others when it involves yourself. You can do so lovingly. A parent must question the children sometimes. Satan wishes to block communications, especially when evil is being done. Satan wishes people to act abruptly without questions.
You can have complete trust in My Sacred Heart. If there were no evil in the world, you would not have to discern things so much. You can go from one extreme to the other. You may trust totally in this world, the media, the television, doctors, priests, teachers anyone in authority, or you may not trust at all. Satan can play up incidents in your mind that can cause tremendous problems in your lives.
When you are faced with a dilemma, you can trust in Me. Consecrate your heart often to My Heart and consecrate the person or persons in question to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Cast the devil into hell. Pray that the Blood of Jesus is spread on them and you. See that person or persons in the Heart of My Mother and My Sacred Heart. See the Blood of Jesus spread on them. My precious Blood will protect you from the evil one. Dwelling in Our Hearts will protect you. Pray to St. Michael.
Do not give in to the trap of Satan who says that you need not question things around you. Satan wants his activities to remain veiled. He does not wish you to question, for in questioning one is seeking the truth. This should be done in love.
It is helpful to communicate with your intimate friends in order to share your thoughts and arrive at the truth.
You can always trust in My Sacred Heart.
I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.
The more men dwell in My Heart, the more they will live in truth. If everyone were doing God's will, you could easily trust others. But because many do evil things to their brothers, because there is so much evil in the world, it is more difficult to discern the correct choice.
You must always strive to do God's will. You must decide in your heart. People in authority can tell you incorrect things, and you may have to obey. But they can never tell you to sin. No person in authority has the right to tell you to sin.
As much as possible, you must trust your doctor and dentist, your priest, policemen, etc. You must pray for them. You must pray for all in authority, consecrate their hearts to Our Hearts and spread the Blood of Jesus on them. Go to people who you know are honest and love God.
I give you My prayers. I am the Good Shepherd. Repeat often: "Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in Thee."
I ask you to pray the prayers in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual for the renewal of the Church and the world.
