          “Will you ever understand the ways of God?  No, not completely in this lifetime.  Only in the blessed abode will your vision be purified.  Then you will understand God’s love beyond the finite mind you bear.  Only in humility will God reveal Himself to your heart, for God is humble, and He abides in the humble heart.

          As you cannot understand a sea creature’s visage and form, so you cannot understand God’s thoughts.  God is the great Creator.  He does not create according to your sense of beauty.  He sees beauty in the spider, in the beetle, in the creeping things you fear.  He sees beauty in the scaly skin of the alligator, the fangs of the wolf, the talons of the eagle.  Everything formed is the mind of God creating, exploring, sculpting, shaping, painting, crowning with life.  God is a great artist, genius in His perfection.  He makes textures and smells and sounds and colors.  Who can begin to understand His thoughts?

          You are a created being, formed from the dust of the earth.  God keeps your entity alive with His life breath.  He watches you lovingly, ready to lead and guide you to perfection.  His paths are peaceful, though arduous at times.

          If men would open their minds and hearts to God’s invasive love, their lives would burst forth from the cocoon of the mundane.  They would scale the glorious heights of the spiritual realm.  All these things of sense and matter are only prototypes of the real life, the eternal life with God forever.  These sensual pleasures become roadblocks that bar the way to spiritual realities.  Souls stop at the temporal, never accessing the eternal.  Their eyes deceive them.  I admonished souls to pluck out their eyes if they blocked the way to save their  souls.  Men are blinded and deafened in this world addicted to sense pleasures.  They have lost sight of the eternal truths of God.  They have despised the Scriptures and walked away from the houses of worship.  They have made financial success their idol and have turned away from the simplicity of My friendship.

          My heart is grieved for lost souls burdened by life’s harshness.  For those who once knew Me and loved Me but have cast Me aside for temporal pleasures, My heart aches.  I was once their dearest friend.  Now they no longer speak to Me. 
          Lost friendship … what sadness for Me, their greatest good.”

          “A pure heart pleases Me greatly.  It is so rare in this world today.  A pure heart penetrates the veil separating heaven from earth.  “Only the pure in heart shall see God.”  Light is transparent.  A pure soul is light.  A pure soul is transparent.  Angels are brilliant and beautifully transparent.  I need My human angels on earth to bring the brilliance of heaven to earth.

          To become pure you must spend time becoming purified in My holy presence.  I am all purity and light.  I came as the Light of the world to bring My Father’s holiness to earth.  My followers shine with My brilliant light.  You do not see the light with your physical eyes, but spirits see it.  They breathe a fragrance from the wind of heaven.  It makes them stop, even if only momentarily, to gather their senses together.  How they respond to this gift is an indication of their spiritual sensitivity.  Those recognizing the call of the Lord will respond.  Those in rebellion will walk away, spurning the greatest treasure given to mankind – spiritual enlightenment.

          My holy vessels of light evangelize every place they enter.  They bring the light to the dark, unenlightened places.  They are accepted or rejected according to the dictates of men’s hearts.

          You must stride through life with the nobility of a humble child of God.  Your job is to shine.  Words are unnecessary many times.  They mar the beauty of the transcendent light.  Be a bearer of the Son of God in your soul wherever you go.  You are the monstrance.  I am the power.  I am the healer.  I am the revealer.  You must let it happen.  God’s mysterious ways touch man in a way you never could.  Let Him speak to souls by the light streaming through your countenance.  He needs available vessels with no agenda but God’s agenda.

          “Be ye holy as I am holy.”  Let God’s holiness not only pervade you, but pour out to others.”

          “Purity is excellence attained by the cleansing power of the Blood of Jesus.  Only a pure heart can see God.  God’s gaze purifies the soul from every stain of sin.  God has created man to be pure and holy of heart.  This is his highest excellence.

          How do you keep yourself unspotted from the world?  By falling in love with Jesus, your Purifier.  As you commune intimately with Him, your eye becomes clear, your heart melts before Him, you see the beauty of heaven’s purity.  Your views are altered.  You are changed into the purity of Jesus, whose only desire is to love God and to do His holy and perfect will. 

          Purity is the power of evangelization.  Only a pure soul can reflect the light of Jesus, like the prism of a crystal.  Sin mars the glass, making it appear dim and cloudy, not allowing Jesus to shine through the windows.

          Ask your Jesus to purify you daily from the slightest sin.  There are so many sins that are subtle and hidden.  You need the light of the Holy Spirit to reveal them.  You need His strength to eradicate all uncleanness and vices.

          Lift your face up to Me like a stately sunflower in a garden.  Bend towards the sun at all times.  Let its rays keep you light and bright.  Sway in the gentle breeze of adversity with your eyes stayed upon your immovable God.

          Sprinkle My sunshine everywhere you go, the pure rays of My love.  You will enlighten the world around you and bring joy to the dark places.

          Be the pure little trusting child I created you to be.”

          “My peace flows through a vessel of purity, washed and scoured of all that mars and taints.  The world cannot give you My peace.  The world offers excitement, but not peace.  You must exchange the excitement of the world for My deep abiding peace.    Peace is found in the silence.  The barter for peace is prayer.  As you turn away from the world’s distractions to seek the invisible world of My kingdom, I open the heavens and pour forth My peace into your soul.          Do you desire My serenity and My peace with all your heart?  You shall have it as you spend time in My presence.  My words bring My peace.

          What is peace?  It is a tremendous contentment of soul, a resting place of goodness, laying down on the bed of integrity to slumber in peaceful soul sleep.  Your spirit wakes up to what is really of value to your soul.

          Clasp your hands before you in holy prayer and contemplation and My peace will flood your soul.  You will know that all is well in My kingdom, which is a kingdom of everlasting peace.

          My Mother lived and nourished herself in the holy contemplation of God, her prayer.  Her communion with God’s heart was her life’s strength.  She turned away from the empty clamor of the world’s vanities to seek the solitude of her God of love.  She was renewed and refreshed in the calming presence of her Creator.

          You must turn away from everything that disturbs your peace.  Run away quickly from anything that disturbs your contemplation of God and eternity.  Your life is a prelude to the real life of eternity in the kingdom of God.  Prepare for it fervently by your continual communication and awareness of what God desires.

          Be joyous that your God communes with you so intimately.  His will is your sanctification.  To an open heart, He brings divinity.  Be ready to receive all that God wants to give you by remaining pure, unspotted, and unstained by the world.  Only then will the Holy Trinity dwell in you with great rejoicing.  Peace will reign on earth in a surrendered body.

          See the deeper meaning of life in the stillness of God’s presence.”

          “How do you live the spiritual life day by day?  It is not in knowledge or power of conviction.  Self-effort is the beginning.  Real spiritual living is produced by the Holy Spirit’s presence within you.  He is the sanctifier.  Without Him, you can do nothing to increase your holiness.

          A willing spirit and an open heart pave the way for the Holy Spirit to channel His grace into your soul.  To refer all things to His care is to rely on His supernatural strength, power, and wisdom to bring forth the will of God in your life.

          You must become like a little child, obedient to Jesus in everything.  You must not seek anything other than the tasks He sets before you.  Your obedience proves your love to Him.  It is not your works that impress Him.  Jesus doesn’t need your works.  He needs you to become divinized, so as to live unhindered within you.  His presence alone converts hearts and lives.  His works are just a confirmation of His divinity.

          If you will allow Me to live in you unhindered, I will change your world and the world of those around you.  I may keep you small and hidden, but many glorious marvels will be happening around you and within you.

          To acquire eyes open to heaven, you must retain the wonder and abandonment of a child.  Faith is childlike.  It believes wholeheartedly without proof.

          Trust that I am leading you on a direct path to heaven even though you do not see any results in your life.  I work hidden and unseen, away from the glamour of the world’s ways.

          I walk the earth in a child’s heart.”

           “My heart thrills to see one of My little ones jump into My arms with abandonment and holy confidence.  So many souls are guarded, cautious, discerning, jaded, cynical and calculating.  To see the innocence of a child in a mature adult is to see the kingdom of God on earth.

          Children are pure, innocent, and loving.  They do not calculate their loving gestures.  They love recklessly and with abandon.  They live joyful lives, living and loving as if they are breathing heaven’s atmosphere to earth.  Children’s eyes are luminous, tranquil, pure, and full of light.  They have not been darkened by the world’s impure atmosphere.  The world slowly creeps into a soul, darkening the eye’s light to beauty.  What was once pure and unadulterated becomes foolish and childish.  Trust, the child’s dearest virtue, is crushed.  Cynicism sets in.  Stubbornness and rejection guard the soul from vulnerability.  There is no more reckless abandonment to love.   There is a guarded selfishness, a protective shell in which to retreat and hide.

          I have opened the prison gates of damaged emotions.  You may come out and step into the light My children.  God’s love will heal your wounds.  He will tear down all the walls and strongholds you have erected around yourself.  He will lead you to heaven, going before you as a kindergarten teacher leading her new students lined up obediently behind her.

          God is light, love, and reckless abandonment to Love’s caress.  He invites you to free yourselves of the chains you have shackled yourself with.  Become that free, open, docile, loving child He created you to be.  This is freedom – to become a child of the light fit for heaven’s eternal gaiety.”
