December 30, 1999:
all that is? And now, likewise as My children, you must give birth to Me—in the way of Mary your Mother. Does this sound too abstract for the human mind to comprehend?...
Little daughter, The Holy Octave of Consecration supplies the answer. You must look again at the great gift I have given you. Acknowledgment, belief, and action—in that order, will move mankind into the heart of the Creator—home to their Father. Your task is not a difficult one. It was designed for the simplest of My souls. The relationship of Father and child—this is the answer
to the ageless puzzle: Who am I? What is my purpose? Because of its simplicity, it has been overlooked in favor of something complex, sophisticated, and challenging. This is man’s pride, not My plan.
I have given you all you must know, but it has been left behind in pursuit of some unobtainable quest. What man seeks now he cannot find—He searches for Me, His God, through the machinations, calculations, and analysis of “his” mind. True, through his thoughts he will find My imprint, My “impression.” But he is building his bridge to God out of inferior materials using an imperfect
All has been given you. There is no more to explain. I will tell you this, little rose of My heart—Love is as simple as a heartfelt word—“Abba,” “Daddy.” I will not apologize if this is not sophisticated enough for My precocious children. I will provide you time to uncover this truth, with the help of My holy hand.
You, too, must believe and tell all who will listen—God is real! Your Father lives. He has come for you, especially in this time. For this, too, is part of My plan. I have come to gather My children, all My children, to My divine paternal heart. The knowledge of My TRUE PATERNITY has been withheld too long—clouded and obscured by omission and lies. This work of Mine began in simplicity and will end in simplicity.
Barbara, use the analogy of a signal. In order to pick it up, you must be pointed in the appropriate direction. They will find Me best in the Blessed Sacrament—and the signal is “love.” Remember that—it is crucial. The divine signal is love—Father to child, child to child, child to Father—always in love. Come to Me tomorrow. I know you wish comfort and direction for the new times which are upon you. I will speak of this more fully at that time. Shalom, daughter of My heart.
We can only acknowledge His truth with an open heart. Only an open heart is ready to perceive and receive the signal of His love. His love surrounds us, He makes sure of this but we miss the opportunities by hardening our hearts to protect ourselves from being hurt.
We simply trust our senses too much and in this we have been deceived. The senses are not our heart, feelings are not our heart, they're on the level of the senses and all our senses were given us as information gatherers, not truth tellers. Since they aren't meant to tell us the truth, only what we perceive, they can influence our minds and betray them. Our minds are meant to sift through the info and make sound deductions and judgments from the info, but as He says they give us only an imprint and impression of what He wants to communicate to us. But our spirit, where our heart lies, can perceive the whole truth without any impediments and without filters or skews.
It is mystical, true, but what is wrong with that? The world has convinced most everyone that what is sensible is better and is a more trustworthy experience, but that is not true. But perhaps that is why people seem to prefer Jesus to the Father, and why our theology is so wrong in thinking that the Father is the hidden and less real part of the Trinity and Jesus is the more real part. Our creed says... visible and invisible... Just because what is spiritual is not measurable in a physical way does not mean it is less real. In fact it is more real. Before God created, He Was. "In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." No Jesus yet, no physical being in God just spirit, and no created beings yet. So how can the physical be more real when the physical was created by the spiritual? How can man and plants and all creation which will die and decompose be more real than what is eternal? What has power over the material world has to be more real than the material world which is held together by the spiritual and is subject in every way to it.
So how does our spirit perceive the truth? First by allowing our heart to be open, Then by relating with Him in prayer. Prayer is sentiment, so communicate your sentiments to Him in whatever way you can and works for you. That is prayer. Then allowing time for silence, allowing time for God who is within you to communicate His sentiments to you. You may or may not experience Him communicate to you in the same way you do with Him, but He will make His sentiments known to you. You may be able to do this at the same time you are communicating your sentiments to Him, it may take time to develop this, or you may be able to be in this state all the time and be able to be interiorly silent so as to be able to perceive Him all the time. And lastly, at some point you will be able to distinguish His communications from others, including the self and evil spirits and learn to trust that which is His. That is often the hardest part, coming to trust when its Him. Most of us were taught that only saints can hear Him and so you can't trust any type of communication since you could never be holy. Yet we are all on a path to mystical union with God from our baptism and we progress in our prayer which corresponds to our degree of union with Him. Besides, His communications give us the peace which surpasses all understanding, the self can not have peace without understanding and the adversary can't give us peace at all only present scenarios which we prefer in our nature or seem to avoid conflict, and that may allow us to have a certain calm but peace is also trust and faith and love and joy and a strength that can not be disturbed easily, and not simply an absence of conflict. His communications also give us clarity, confidence, removes fear,and gives us a docility to His will, "be it done to me according to Thy word." God causes good things in us, the adversary has to work on our senses and/or our mind to deceive us and our spirit will be disturbed by his presence.
May our hearts be ever open to his loving signals that we may receive all He desires to give us, and be open vessels for all those He may desire to give to through us. Amen
