Galatians 5: 18-25

But when you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law. When self-indulgence is at work the results are obvious: sexual vice, impurity, and sensuality, the worship of false gods and sorcery; antagonisms and rivalry, jealousy, bad temper and quarrels, disagreements, factions and malice, drunkenness, orgies and all such things. And about these, I tell you now as I have told you in the past, that people who behave in these ways will not inherit the kingdom of God. On the other hand the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, trustfulness, gentleness and self-control; no law can touch such things as these. All who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified self with all its passions and its desires.

    Since we are living by the Spirit, let our behaviour be guided by the Spirit and let us not be conceited or provocative and envious of one another.

 

Luke 11: 42-46

But alas for you Pharisees, because you pay your tithe of mint and rue and all sorts of garden herbs and neglect justice and the love of God! These you should have practised, without neglecting the others. Alas for you Pharisees, because you like to take the seats of honour in the synagogues and to be greeted respectfully in the market squares! Alas for you, because you are like the unmarked tombs that people walk on without knowing it!'

    A lawyer then spoke up. 'Master,' he said, 'when you speak like this you insult us too.' But he said, 'Alas for you lawyers as well, because you load on people burdens that are unendurable, burdens that you yourselves do not touch with your fingertips.

 

                The Law is to point out what is wrong —

                    But law itself does not keep us from
                        doing wrong —

                    We may not be concerned about leading the people —

                        only learning about places of honor
                        for ourselves.

                    God calls us to love —

                        not to poke at others how they should
                        obey the law and not obey ourselves —

                    What is in the heart?

                    Is there love?

                    Is there obedience to God's law in love?

       

I Am Calling You to Love

February 21, 1994

Jesus: You are My servant. You are My very dear servant. I am coming to you with such love. Focus not on any distractions that Satan places in your path. Focus on Me, the Eternal Word, come to you, My child, with great love and eagerness to deliver My message to you.

I am He Who wants you to place all worries aside. Any kind of mental anguish is indeed a work of Satan. He tells you things in your mind, he wants you to get angry, he wants to create division, he wants you to take your focus off of God, he is constantly full of talk in your head to create a problem for you.

You are My ardent love. You take your thoughts and discipline them. Focus on My Passion. See Me bloodied, bruised, beaten, crowned with thorns, My hands tied. See Me weak and worn and and trudging on My way to Calvary. See Me agonizing over love of you. Think of this, My child, how much I love you to come to this earth—God, to be born a mere human for love of thee and then to suffer such brutality for love of you.

I loved you to My death on this cross. I withstood such horridness, profuse bleeding, wounds, insults, mistreatment, kicking, spitting and poking. I, God-made-man, walked this awful journey to Calvary. I walked it alone. I watched My mother suffer such anguish! This alone was such torment! What more could I do for love of you? What more can I say now? What more do you want? What more, My child?

It wounds My aching heart, but for love of you I sit as a prisoner in the tabernacle and I wait for you. I wait, I wait, I wait. My intense love bids Me to wait for you!

What do I say to you? I, God, come to you in Holy Communion. I love you unconditionally with such love you cannot even fathom and you turn away and run after such senseless things. I am lamenting the loss of your love. I am lamenting the time you spend in other things, and for what? It is God Who waits for you. I wait! I am here, God-made-man, Jesus Christ! I wait, I wait!

You have 24 hours a day and you do not have one hour for the Son of Man? What do you do? What is important to you? I am God! What could be more important than God, Who is waiting for you? I am Number One. The First Commandment says, "I am the Lord thy God. Thou shalt not have any gods before Me."

What is your god? Who speaks to you? Whom do you spend your time with? Where are your thoughts? Whom do you ponder over in your mind? What things are so important to you? Do you listen to the First Commandment? Do you not hear My Commandment to love God and love one another? Is this your concern? What are the Commandments to you, little things you follow after you do what you want first?

Do you do the will of The Father? He wills you to keep the commandments. An act of following My will pleases Me far more than a day of mortification. Are you doing My will or yours? Do you pick your good works, prayers, etc., and is doing what you will a good thing? Or do you earnestly sit in silence and listen to the promptings I give you in the heart?

"Oh, I have time to recite all these prayers, but not to sit in silence and listen to You, Lord." I am calling you to love of God and love of your brothers. Loving God is action from the heart. You sit, you in silence, with your lover, and you ponder Him with ardent love. If you want to recite prayers, it only comes from great love first. It comes from great, ardent, longing and loving of the heart, not sitting and endlessly doing your quota today. To do your prayers every day is great if you are doing it out of intense love for Me. You must have this great love to pray these prayers from the heart!

Many say prayer after prayer after prayer, a task they give themselves like brushing their teeth. I call you to love of God. Love is from the heart. I want your love. I want you to sit and be with Me as an ardent lover. I do not want you heartlessly reciting prayers at Me and ignoring Me. Would you do this to your lover?

I want a love relationship with Me. I want you to know I am a true person. I want your time with Me to come from great love. You long to come and sit with Me. I am real. I am a person. I am Jesus, sitting in the tabernacle waiting for you!

Do you love God first? Do you know what love is at all? Is your love for Me a chain of prayers you say every day, just to put in your time? What lover would put up with a relationship like the one you are giving Me? Do you follow My command to love God and love your neighbor? I do not say to spend time doing busy prayers with God and just tolerating your brother.

Love is an action from the heart. It evolves from such longing and heartfelt feelings. I call you to love God. What are you doing to follow this commandment?

I am a heart on fire for love of you. I am the lover Who is waiting for you in every tabernacle in this world. I am waiting, My beloved, with a heart on fire for love of you and what are you doing, little ones? You come in a rush and you throw prayers in My face. You pray to Me at bedtime, half asleep, and your mouths are running like a machine. This, child, is love? What lover would stay around for such coldness. You treat Me coldly. My heart aches for love of you, little one. It is a burning furnace on fire with ardent love—hot and burning, yearning, deepest love—and you, My child, come with such indifference and coldness.

I want your love. I want to share a love affair with you. My heart aches over this coldness and indifference. My heart is in such anguish for love of you. Some in their busy lives never even come or do not even know Me. My heart is aching. You know of the treasure here. Do you spread the love of God to your brothers or do you worry about what they may think? You can talk about the weather and the sick society, but you can't talk to a stranger about the love of God!

If you love your brother, you will preach My love in your very being. You will not get bowed down by Satan and cast a dark shadow on this world.

You, little ones, don't know how to love God and you don't know how to love your brothers. Listen to Me here and be taught My ways! I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God and I am speaking to you. These are the words of Jesus Christ for His beloved ones

I want to teach all about love, My love for them and their love for Me. Do you know how to love Me? My beloved ones come, day after day, and recite prayers in My face and don't have any actions in their hearts. This is not love. It is coldness. I call you to love in your heart, burning for the God Who is so good and loves you so much He died for you! I gave My life for you. I love you this way this very day. My love never changes. I burn for love for you.

Preach the Real Presence. Shout it from the housetops: Jesus is the Lord. He is God and He is with you this very day. He waits for you in Communion with ardent love.

I am God. You have the true treasure. Is anything of any more account than this? You are so blind and so silly.

Shout it from the housetops, "Jesus is Lord and He is in the Eucharist and in the Tabernacle."

Your King waits for you. Preach the True Presence. Mary leads you to the ardent, burning love of her Son, the love of Jesus. Alleluia.

I am Who am. I am your God!

                We can pray the rosary for 60 years so I say

                    "Oh I prayed the rosary every day for
                        60 years"

                    or do we pray because of love.

                We constantly remember it's not repetitious
                    words but lifting our minds and hearts
                    to God.

                We have an obligation to worship our
                    heavenly Father —

                The law can tell us what is wrong,

                    but only the Holy Spirit can help us from doing
                    wrong — only God can help us from doing wrong.
