Not to scandalize but to warn you of mercy
I do apologize for any scandal I cause by this blog. I can only defend it by writing we should know to what depths out fallen human nature treated the God of our Salvation and the twisted pride that will cause us not to see what god intends for our salvation and what He will do that is to what depths of love He will go to save us. How truly great is the mercy and forgiveness he has for those who repent. I do find it wryly and bitterly amusing that there is no real attempt made by use His children to have sympathy and empathy for the suffering Of the Son and the attempts by the father to provide the sacrificial lamb of providence for our salvation. We rush to see prophets, visionaries and locutionists, just to bathe in their claimed glory and pay no real attention to what we should be understanding.
For a long time I have thoughts or instructions that happen deep inside late at night and what is poetically called the hush of dawn. Truth to tell I have a great unwillingness to share some of them. Prayer and fasting never shifts them, the use of the Holy Name does not drive them away and it is odd at each thought they do not expand. They are always the same and they have lasted in one case for several years. It would probably be cathartic and in my interest to place them upon paper. One became loud, clear and in the front and center of my mind when I was asked about the recent Visions of Mary's presence amongst us. Perhaps there are to be many of them but they are or will not be of the Prophetic Kind. At this time I should like to make it clear and ask you to help yourself by considering what a true prophet is and read the scriptures to confirm in your mind, to strengthen what facts a prophet should produce. The Prophet is a man of God and not necessarily holy, just a mouth who is earning his salvation by speaking God's words no matter how frightening they seem. They instill by a sense of duty fortitude and even more so they are a test that brings the prophet closer to God, reaps him many graces. A prophet is a man because man's nature calls him to arms, while a visionary is always in a true sense a woman whose natural concern is the development both in numbers and learning of the tribe. A woman every time sees love and is driven by love and concern and teaches thus. A man cries warning or beware and even let us be honest guards the safety and property of the tribe. If necessary with wrath and anger at the danger he instinctively perceives, as Sampson filled with the Spirit attacked with the jawbone of an ass and killed many, or as he tore the lion apart like a kid, or as sentinel both inside and outside the walls of protection that surrounds the tribe, its women and its children and property.
Now getting back to those and these are the first two deep thoughts of what I have known for a while and what I find hard to tell you.
The first is, our Lord Jesus Christ is the forgiveness of sins and He earnt the power to forgive them. How I thought, did He earn that power to give forgiveness to those who are sorry they committed pride, envy, gluttony, lust, anger, greed and sloth and all derivations rooted from them. There could not have been one sin that Christ did not be tempted with or was practiced upon Him. How could He face us from His Throne of judgment if we could say, "How would You know?" And prideful sinners would. Was Christ proud of course not but despair is a sin of pride and He was tempted. Did He not pray against temptation with, "Take this Chalice from Me" or "My God, My God why have you deserted me?" All this happened when the world's sins were fully fashioned and placed upon Him, with His passion upon Him, and the form of the Cross looming over Him, He prayed for help to persist. We call it or at least the Church named it His dereliction. God, His Father had to leave because of sin. Despair, depression comes to us as we omitting God from our equation are in despair because we cannot live with the pain of the world's pressure.
Jesus prayed all the time for his Father's help, through prayer He made Himself busy and cured our illnesses both spiritual and temporal. He walked and talked. As I said every deadly sin was practiced on Him or tempted Him even sexual lust. It had to be. Here is what will scandalize you or most of you. Christ, because of their nature of His temple guards during his passion, was raped, late or better early in the Friday morning. They were descendants of the Alexander's Greek army probably spartan and even the Romans spoke about the Greek Disease an overly longing for the beauty of men's bodies. Now perhaps you understand my unwillingness to write of this. But what is hope or is there any hope for the disorder in mans sexuality to be forgiven if Jesus had not faced it in this world. Why I ask did the Apostles not write of it , were not allowed to witness this despicable act, for the same reason you are abhorrent at these words as you read them. St Catherine of Sienna must have had some knowledge of this disorder and can be seen in her statement, "Even the Devil is disgusted at the act of Sodomy. He leaves disgusted at its completion". There is no way our Siennese sister Kate committed this sin but she was privileged to know the depths of disgust that went beyond heaven at its performance. It severely offended the fallen angel of light who was at one time an example of beauty. I say this if Jesus can forgive such a dreadful personal attack committed during His meek helplessness then so should we no matter how hard it may be.
The second thought I have and this is been with me longer than the above. I have been told politely with words in my mind that soon there will be only one who will speak for us. Be careful again to understand those words. Your question must be if we have a movement in our minds that the end might be near then what should we expect. Put it this way what would a providential God or how would a providential God tell or show where we stand before His Judgment? Is He not the most perfect of all and therefore would His perfection be perfectly fair? Would He do everything He can to prepare us for the time He will have to judge us? I think so. There will be no way any one can say You never gave me a chance. You knew I am sinful. In His way that will of course scandalize many He will show us in His time. Be careful now of any claims to from anyone to have the ears or instructions of God or from Heaven, doubly careful in every way for evil will double its work to keep you his. If you disparage all you have read and if you have gotten this far down the page. Remember this warning of the evil that will become fiercer and that we might end up with God having nothing to give us. His next move as we stand before Him might be to give us a flame to purify us or a flame to burn us with its hatred.
