Monday, May 5, 2014:
Jesus said: “My people, St. Stephen was well gifted in his debating skills, and he taught about faith in Me. Those, who challenged him in debate, were no match for his skills. The people were so frustrated with him and his teachings, that they brought false witnesses against him before the Sanhedrin. Later, they would even try to kill him. In today’s world you also have people that do not want to hear Christian teachings that criticize their sinful lifestyles. You are always seeing battles with people favoring abortion, living together without marriage, and homosexual marriage. You have the truth from Me that these things are mortal sins, and they threaten people’s souls in going to hell. Still these people do not want to answer your protests, so they find ways to criticize you for your proper beliefs. They do not want to argue against the truth, so they call you names and even persecute you. In the end times, these evil people will even try to kill you because they get their orders from Satan himself. When people threaten to kill you, like they did to St. Stephen, then you will need to come to My refuges of protection. Keep close to Me, and never deny your faith, even if people threaten to kill you.”

Jesus said: “My people, in the Acts of the Apostles, St. Stephen was looking up to see Me in heaven as I lessened the pain of his being stoned to death. He forgave the people who were stoning him. St. Stephen was faithful to Me, even though the Jews were doing an injustice to him for speaking out the truth about Me. There have been many martyrs who would rather die for their faith, than deny Me. All of My followers should love Me so much. These martyrs are with Me in heaven in a higher place than other souls. In the vision I gave a brief look at what St. Stephen was seeing while he was being stoned. The glory of heaven is very much desired, and not everyone receives this view of My glory. I promise all of My faithful an eternal place with Me in heaven for all those who suffer on earth, especially any persecution for My Name’s sake.”
