Monday, April 7, 2014:
Jesus said: “My people, you are seeing in the story of Susanna in the Book of Daniel how lust can make men desire beautiful women as these elders did. This can also emphasize how false accusations can be a serious injustice if the innocent do not have an advocate. Many men are tempted by your society that flaunts pornography, or women who do not dress properly. Many of your people also are too quick to judge people on things without thinking of their own faults. I am the only One to judge people. You can advise people if you see them living in sinful lifestyles, but do not judge them. All persons have to answer to Me for their actions at the judgement. During Lent all of you should be working on avoiding your sins of the flesh, and avoiding gossip that criticizes people either rightly or wrongly. You have human weaknesses, but you are fasting and praying to control the body’s desires. By focusing more on following My ways, you can detach yourself from such earthly temptations.”

Jesus said: “My people, in the Gospel I told the accusers of an adulteress that whoever is without sin, can throw the first stone. Once they left, I warned the woman not to commit that sin again. I know it is difficult for men and women not to commit sin, so I instituted the sacrament of Reconciliation so you could be forgiven of your future and present sins. I did not condemn the woman of her sin, but I took upon Myself all of your sins so you would not be condemned either. The justice of My heavenly Father was satisfied, when I became sin and suffered for all of you on My cross. Before I gave up My life on the cross, no one could come to heaven, and all the dead had to suffer. Once I resurrected, then the gates of heaven were opened for those souls who are worthy. As one man, Adam, brought sin into the world and all the effects of that sin, so one man, in Me, brought atonement for all sin, and My promise of heaven to those who believe and obey My laws. Rejoice, that I took all the punishment for your sins upon Me, so you could enter heaven. You do not earn heaven, because I have won your salvation on My cross.”
