Jesus said: “My people, the devil in the serpent attracted man and woman in Adam and Eve to take of the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil by saying they would be like gods. The devil attacked their pride so they could be like Me in knowing about good and evil. After eating the forbidden fruit, it was then that they realized that they were naked, and they hid from God because they were ashamed of their sin. Even today the devil continues to attack your pride by making the people want to run their own lives instead of Me. It is by your pride that the devil tempts you not to go to Confession saying you are good and did not sin. The devil is the great deceiver and liar. He will tell you anything to get you to sin against Me. Do not believe his lies and give him Scriptures as I did to answer his temptations. Do not dwell on temptations or have any fear or worry because you have trust in Me to provide grace and rest for your soul. I pour out My gifts on you, and I see to all of your needs. Most of all have love in your heart for Me and your neighbor as yourself. You must pray much to counter all the evil in your world, and I will send My angels to protect you from the demons. Evil only succeeds where good people do nothing or evil things. By having a heart that loves Me dearly, you will be called to only perform good deeds instead of evil ones. Temptations will be with you until your death, but I am always at your side to lead you on the right path to heaven. Just ask for My help in My Name, and the demons will leave you.”
