It is not a physical structure I ask for—but rather the hearts of My children.
What good would a structure be without the open and yearning hearts of My
children for their Father? This is My Church, My dwelling place—the human
heart… Little one, go where I lead you, when I lead you. For now, My children
must meet Me in their hearts—if they are to recover and survive. So much for
later— Now go to My holy Word and read. My peace is with you, little one.
...Be at peace in My holy and ordained Spirit. Let nothing trouble you. Now as
regards your request for help: I am always with you and I remain ever vigilant
in My attempts to guide you in your efforts. However, you must act in union
with My Spirit if you hope to obtain My help, little one. Pray to My Holy Spirit
and He will come to you. Demonstrate the efficacy of this in the output of your
work. Listen to My words to you on this evening: Trust, never falter in your
understanding of My words. All else will follow. Trust Me. Now sleep in My
What God does, He does well. Look at the Blessed Virgin Mary, the New Ark of the Covenant, a flawless Construction and the "I am the Immaculate Conception" she told St. Bernadette. The House of God's first coming to earth in the Second Person as Jesus and Now, God the Father (the preeminent figure of the Godhead...the Creator and Lord of all that is, the unbegotten, uncreated One... from which all things usher forth from!) is going to come to dwell on Earth, in and with His children!
Jesus is coming to hand over everything back to Father and rightly (purchased by His Precious Blood) reclaims it for Him.. as is worthy of Father. Is this perhaps the Wedding Feast of the Lamb? Father does prophecy to us a time of Restoration and a coming divine intervention, the Act of Transformation.
We don't need to be afraid because, although traditionally many of the Saints and prophets mention an awareness of their sinfulness as they draw closer to God, in the relationship Father establishes with Barbara, it is not one where He is inviting Her to look at her flaws. Does this mean we should judge it as heresy? Let us consider this, His predominant emphasis in the Seeing with the Eyes of the Soul messages is that we look and focus on Him, on the Light, and not the shadows. I have a theory that it is precisely because the audience He has chosen through Barbara is primarily adults who suffered some form of abuse as children and live the effects of unreconciled trauma. God treats people who are deliberately closed off and people who are from illness completely different and so should we.
Consider: 1) It is by far, the most gentle encounter the human race has ever had with His God. 2) Father chooses Barbara, an American average family woman in her mid 40's and gives her the Holy Octave of Consecration ( & daily renewal in the Chaplet), and the Feast Day to promulgate and invites her to develop a relationship with her Father by practicing sharing her day with Him and relating to Him in all things, for her consolation and growth in self-knowledge. He mentions briefly to listen to the Holy Spirit seeking God's will and that suffering, acts of charity and prayers for others are important too. That is it. He invites all His children to this intimate relationship with Him, through Barbara..."orphans no more" but home with our Heavenly Father. It is the essence of her mission.
My theory is that He is keenly aware, more than even we can possibly be, that there are parts of us fixated on trauma that we can't completely control and it is a total martyrdom... it is enough. Doesn't it make sense? Do you ask a chemo patient to fast on bread and water? No, you nurture them, assure them in doting and endless ways that they are loved and safe and good, so they can continue to keep their hearts open and trust. And that is what is most important here. Only open hearts can receive God's grace and dwelling. It is open hearts that can be sanctified, which is His job, not our responsibility. Our part is to remain open, and that is almost impossible for abuse victims, I can say so, being one myself and knowing so many that it seems to me most people. The accuser has a great foothold here and the shame that people hold on to for so many unknown reasons is enough of a burden. "My burden is light" Jesus assures us, is not something they are free to experience, but rather, it is a holy martyrdom to choose to oppose severity and choose mercy. The fear of retribution and pride from abuse is so conditioned and in many cases compulsive that this is enough alone for them to do. Hence Father saying, " I ask so very little of My children in this time." And also, "Many can no longer change, you (Barbara) give your fiat to Me for them." (paraphrased).
This Image of our Father is sadly, so very new to the Church, that many of it's administrators and those with pharisaical spirit will prevent, reject and crucify this Image of a Merciful God and Father in the same way it did in Jesus. Which is so very awful, since the abused victim lambs, we, our country in it's imminent crisis, needs this encouragement to the point of being critical. Father is coming to us, for us, in our present need. He said, "The deprivation of My children is preparing the world for My coming." And that the victims of this culture are the ones more fit for His Kingdom. And that He was coming Himself, our Eternal Father, to defend us. Jesus told St. Faustina (Day 6 DM novena) that children (spiritual and actual) were the ones who most resemble Him." People who are abused retain parts of them that remain repressed (often the parts with only the maturity of a child) their entire lives until they are healed and reintegrated. We find this healing when we learn to depend on Him... as only He can heal.
...–action cannot stand alone without the companion piece of solitude and prayer. Here you are nourished for your responses and expressions in the outside, the external world. There is a universe within you. It is My Kingdom–come! And here the two realities are bound, linked, entwined to a seamless whole, for I am within you and without you. You are in Me as I am in you, joined together as one unified whole–Father and child in an eternal embrace of love. Think on this, little one, and believe. I am with you–always. My peace I give to you. Shalom. (October 25, l999)
We are made for union. Union with Love. We are not enthused about heart surgery, but try to see it this way, as a flow of pure clean water from an Alpine waterfall detaching debris that has built up along the banks that became stagnant during a drought... maybe there was even pollution. Would you focus on the soothing exhilaration and beautiful power of the spring? or the debris? Abuse does fixate our focus on the shadows and debris like a deer to headlights, trauma does that, but God can redirect our focus and it is right that we work ardently to refocus on what is truth, love and light and not darkness. In fact, it may very well be the only thing necessary now.
God being the Giver of Love, unconditional, and we being the receivers and with our hearts being open to receiving His love and then surrendering and offering back...
May God free us from our fears and errors about sufferings... suffering in fact, gives our spirits wings to fly.
My children must meet Me in their hearts—if they are to recover and survive. So much for later--
