1 Corinthians 13: 4-13

Love is always patient and kind; love is never jealous; love is not boastful or conceited, it is never rude and never seeks its own advantage, it does not take offence or store up grievances. Love does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but finds its joy in the truth. It is always ready to make allowances, to trust, to hope and to endure whatever comes.

Love never comes to an end. But if there are prophecies, they will be done away with; if tongues, they will fall silent; and if knowledge, it will be done away with. For we know only imperfectly, and we prophesy imperfectly; but once perfection comes, all imperfect things will done away with. When I was a child, I used to talk like a child, and see things as a child does, and think like a child; but now that I have become a adult, I have finished with all childish ways. Now we see only reflections in a mirror, mere riddles, but then we shall be seeing face to face. Now, I can know only imperfectly; but then I shall know just as fully as I am myself known.

As it is, these remain: faith, hope, and love, the three of them; and the greatest of them is love.

 

  

 

On Suffering

 

October 27, 1993 - 6:00p.m. (excerpt)

Jesus: My soul is sad even to the point of death. Come and wait with Me that you might know the love I have for you. Comfort, oh comfort! I indeed am God and I care for the pain in your soul. I suffered too. I know suffering. I know longing in My heart for souls that are dead in sin and do not come to Me. I suffer for love of thee. Come to Me that I might make you whole, that I may breathe My life into your withered soul and comfort you in your sorrow! You are My child and I watch you and feel your pain. Your pain is not in vain. It is in suffering that you share in My life! Walk My passion with Me and know Me better. The way to Me is the way of the cross. Do not put your cross down. Bear all I send to you and praise your heavenly Father Who loves you! To give up My cross is to give up Me. "Oh, but," you say, "I want to know You, Lord." To know Me is to carry My cross, not to put it down. Carry the little crosses I give you every day and you will know Me more and more for I am in your life today in that cross. Will you embrace Me or turn away? Suffer with Me whenever it comes your way. It is a gift I give to you to be closer to Me.

Oh, ye little ones, you do such foolish things and you do not know what will really light the path. You use oil or water or whatever, but nothing will light your path but My light. I give you fuel for the fire. I give you energy for your way and you go to so many stupid places. Come to Me, My babies. Make your heart an open door. Open the gates to Me and all I give you. Whatever comes in your heart from Me accept as given from Him Who loves you. I love you so.

Now listen to My words: your longing is right for My love. You cannot comprehend My love now. Your heart longs for Me, child. That is suffering. I love for you to long for Me. I am here even when you do not feel Me. In sorrow, I am closest to you. I love you so intently. My heart is on fire for love of you. It is in suffering that I am closest. I am the light to the dark world and I come to this world in you. Will you come and let Me dwell in your soul and cast My light from you? I am the Good Shepherd. I know Mine and Mine know Me. Come little lambs, let Me hold and comfort you. I am your true love.

December 25, 2006 message continues

Messenger:            Jesus even took on our poverty
                            We are poor in knowing real love many times —
                            God came upon the beasts and
                                shepherds

                        The priest at Mass said —
                            Every child is a symbol of hope
                            Who knows how that child will effect
                                this world.

                            There was the smelly shepherds and the Mighty Kings.
                                High and Love — both were there at Christ's birth.
                                Shepherds are visited by angels.

 


                        Look an animals
                            Ferocious lions
                            Little simple lambs

                        People come in different shapes and sizes —

                        Some just say "no" to God's will
                            they want dominance
                        Some say "yes" like - Mary to God's will --
                        Some say "maybe" and go either way

 


                        Son of God came to give us a sharing in His life
                        God came to raise us up
                        To help us -- for we were enslaved in sin
                        Jesus came to teach us love --
                        This is our mission in the Shepherds of Christ
                            to teach this love --
                        Jesus' love letters are to tell us how He loves us --
                        Jesus' love letters tells us how He wants us to love Him.

                            Peace on earth good will to men!

                            How can we call ourselves instruments
                        of love when we are filled with tension —
                        ready to provoke others and try to get us
                        to act out their pain.

                            Pain and sins are inside of us.
                        A person who is argumentative is not
                        acting like Jesus.

                            Whenever one is smiling — they come
                        to cause turmoil because they feel this
                        way inside.

                                God is love —

                                God is always love —

                                God wants us to love —

                            Heaven is one —

                            Live in unity and peace and love.

                        When pain arises people can turn to
                                addictive things —
                                alcohol
                                work
                                food
                                controlling behavior

                        The ideal is to not be attached to
                            inordinate things —

                        Wanting things we cannot have —
                        Hurting others because of hurtful
                            failed relationships.

                        Wanting the familiar when now it
                            can be a poison to our soul.

                        We must be attuned to God's will
                            ALWAYS.

                        Our peace is never controlled by those things outside of us
                            or by temptations to negativism inside of us.

                        We are one with God called deeply to this mission for the sake of souls.
                        We must be so one with the gift of the Christ child given to us today
                            and the purity of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

                        Fr. Carter died 6 years ago —
                        I had pain — I, to my knowledge
                            never punished anyone —

                        I tried to carry out the mission God
                            wants —

                        I still cry when I think of him
                            sometimes — I miss him,
                            but he is with us all in heaven —

                        It was God's will he died — he
                            died — at least in his
                            permissive will, God took
                            Fr. Carter ——

                        God has carried on this mission as He
                            desires — it was not Fr. Carter's
                            or mine or John's —

                        Jesus is the head of this Movement —
                        Jesus wants peace and love and joy to
                            abound on this earth —

                        Men to be loving —

                        He called us to spread unity and love —

                        To see the vision of this mission —

                        Spreading oneness with the Consecration
                            to the 2 Hearts - all over the world.

                        Spreading the Newsletters to 190 countries
                            centered in God's love and
                            consecration to the 2 Hearts.

                        God is love.

                        God wants this thirsty earth to
                            know His love.

                        A man was filled with tension — he is
                            full of unforgiveness —
                            how will he be loving —
                            peaceful.

                        Jesus loved so much — He died on the
                            cross.

                        Jesus is Savior for those
                            enslaved in sin.

                        Today is an opportunity to really pray.

                        The devil will be working to try to divide and
                            we have to focus on Jesus and still focus on others.

                        But for everything that God gives to us today special grace
                            the devil will try to get many to focus on themselves
                            and miss the great gift of this day to pray.

                        I know God will give great grace for those who are praying
                            for the love of Jesus to be in the hearts of many who feel selfish,
                            separated families - mixed marriages - wounds so deep only God can heal.

                        God has given us the gifts of a lifetime this year and we must pray -
                            not try to deal with them or correct them.

                        Only by God's might will the earth be lighted by the fire of His love.

                        God has called us to be instrumental in this.

                        We are always one with Jesus' fiery heart
                            even when we are disappointed or people provoke us.

                        That is what holiness is controlling ourselves in love
                            when others may give into manipulating things.

 

Isaiah 9: 1

The people that walked in darkness
    have seen a great light;
on the inhabitants of a country
    in shadow dark as death
        light has blazed forth.

 


Messenger:          See love through the eyes of children —
                            they do not have hardened hearts —
                            hearts filled with pain and division —

                        They want love in their hearts —

                        They have joy.

                        They forgive.

                        A car had a big wreck
                            until it was repaired —
                            it remained wrecked —

                        It is time to beg God to heal the wounded hearts
                            so hearts are full of love and unity, but
                            if pain controls our hearts — we become
                            self-focused — rather than other focused.

                        The word is love, compassion, forgiveness
                            living in the truth.

                        God wants to be close to us and God wants us to be close to Him.
