This journal entry really pulled at me and I felt the desire to post it early. She asks Him candidly, "What do these words of Jesus's , that it is only for You Father to know the hour of the Restoration of Your Kingdom, have to do with the Holy Octave of Consecration?" It particularly moved me when Father said, "Who will be ready? Who will be awake? Who will be prepared?"
It is a daily challenge we all face. With Mary and through our Consecration to Father and our fiat, we pray that more children of God embrace all the graces that are being poured out in these times of Mercy and respond now... Oh Dear Father! Increase and multiply your little Transformers on earth and usher in Your Holy Era and Reign!
Here's the jrnl entry...
Father, if it is Your Will, would You offer us some insight on Acts 1:6-7: “Lord wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? But he said to them: It is not for you to know the times or moments, which the Father hath put in his own power.” Jesus said it is not for us to know the time or moment of the restoration of the Kingdom. Is there any connection between the restoration of the Kingdom to Israel and the Holy Octave of Consecration? If it pleases You to respond to this, Father, your daughter is listening.
Be at Peace, My daughter: Let the gentle calm of the day’s end settle over you. My Kingdom. What is My Kingdom? A Kingdom is something a King reigns over. But it is more. It is a place where he lives. A place that he protects. A place where he maintains peace and dispenses justice. A good king is just and fair and is loved by his people. Ideally, a kingdom exists in harmony and affords the people security and happiness. A king should be honored and respected by his people. All these things are true of a kingdom, are they not, Barbara Rose?
Yes, ideally, Father.
You ask Me if the restoration of the Kingdom to Israel is somehow connected to the Holy Octave of Consecration. First of all, a king should be present to his people, not only to afford them protection but to give them hope and heart. Do I truly dwell with My children? Do they see and hear Me in their lives? Secondly, do My children honor and respect Me? How so, My daughter? Thirdly, do My children feel security and happiness in the realm they now live in? Perhaps on a superficial level.
For a kingdom to come, my children must acknowledge their king. They must recognize that there is indeed a kingdom. The Kingdom of God is not forced upon My children. They must choose to enter it. They must choose to return home to their Father. So many images: Father and Paradise, King and King- dom, the New Jerusalem. What does all this mean?
Expressed in simple terms, I speak of My children returning home to Me. Where I am, so is heaven, so is Paradise, so is the New Jerusalem. As I have explained to you before, little one, the Kingdom will not come from without but from within. How can it ever come if My children refuse to see it, acknowledge it? Even more, they must want it. How many of My children acknowledge that it exists? How many bid it come? How can they? They have no knowledge or belief in it. When the cutting edge of Truth slices through the illusion that is the world, those who are not prepared will have difficulty in adjusting to the light which will penetrate powerfully into each and every soul.
Who will welcome this kingdom? Who will embrace this kingdom? Who will battle and overcome for this kingdom? Remember what I have told you—the children of God can have no kingdom restored to them, O Israel, until they know, love, and honor their Creator and Father. Then and only then will the Kingdom truly settle into the hearts of My children and My Kingdom will be realized on earth. Stages and degrees have been involved in the coming of this Kingdom—the restoration of the children of God to their Father. Now is the time that it comes into clearer and clearer relief—toward final realization.
Do you need to ask, Barbara Rose? Truly, in your heart you know the answer. You have outlined the path of My children’s journey home—culminating in an Octave Consecration and Feast Day. Can you not see? The prodigal children will at last have found their Father. They will celebrate with joy. For in finding Him, they are no longer lost. Having been dead, they are now come to life.
As I requested an 8-day feast in Old Testament times, so now My children re- spond to My desire to be known, loved, and honored at this time, in this way.
And as with the final day of assembly, this consecration feast day will serve to regather ALL My children. The spirit will move mightily in this effort.
My children’s response—so sweet and simple: “I love You, Father, and I give myself to You.” And I will come to dwell with you and I will be your God and you will be my people—I am your Father and you are My children. And once you have found your way home, you will look around you and realize that you are loved and protected for all time. For you are now in the Kingdom. The Kingdom has come and it dwells in you as you dwell in it. Do you comprehend what I am saying to you, daughter?
My children must acknowledge My existence. They must see that I am truly their Father. They must choose to leave the world of sin and disobedience and come to Me—in humility and trust. And I will shower them with such tender love as they have never before experienced or imagined. Do you see now how the Holy Octave of Consecration to God Your Father leads to the restoration of the Kingdom to Israel—My children?
I believe so, Father.
There should be joy and celebration. As in the return of the prodigal son!
Gal 4:1-7—“Now I say, as long as the heir is a child, he differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; but is under tutors and governors until the time appointed by the father: so we also, when we were children, were serving under the elements of the world. But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent his son, made of a woman, made under the law: that he might redeem them who were under the law: that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because you are sons, God hath sent the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying: Abba, Father. Therefore now he is not a servant, but a son. And if a son, an heir also through God.”
And so, daughter, from servitude to sonship—and now is time for the children of God to return home. Thus will the Kingdom of God be restored to Israel—My children, all. A parting thought, daughter. The prodigal son, by choice, returned to his father. By choice, always by choice. Sleep in My Peace, little one.
Ps. I would like to apologize for previously digressing from posting ONLY Tree of Life content, which I had mentioned I wanted Abbacasita to be mainly be a place for. I do try, but, imperfect as I am, I find it difficult to do always, particularly now with the healing God is doing in me. Thanks and peace. Lstar.
