Jesus said: “My people, the Jewish leaders were always questioning My authority, and how I could perform miracles.  I did not want to reveal My true identity as part of My Messianic secret.  So I posed another question to them about St. John the Baptist, if his Baptism was from heaven or from men.  Since they did not want to answer Me, then I did not answer them.  This incident happened after I had chased the money changers out of the Temple.  I spoke to the people and these leaders in parables, so they did not understand My true purpose.  Later, I would explain the parables to My apostles.  In essence, I received My authority from God the Father, who sent Me, but this would be revealed later when I spoke plainly before I was crucified.  Another reason that the Scribes and Pharisees questioned My authority, is because My miracles and My teachings threatened their own authority over the people.  They saw many people believe in Me, especially after I raised Lazarus from the dead.  This is why they wanted to kill Me, so I could no longer lead the people away from their control.  Even today, Christians are being persecuted because the sinners do not want their sins exposed, and they want to silence any criticism.  They will want to kill My faithful because they do not want people telling them how to live holy lives, since they love their sins more than Me.  Despite any persecution, My people need to warn sinners that it is necessary to repent and be converted, in order to be saved in heaven.”

Jesus said: “My people,  I want to emphasize to you that hell exists, and the evil demons exist.  I made hell originally for a place of punishment for the bad angels who would not serve Me.  Hell is eternal, and there are souls who refuse to serve and love Me.  They condemn themselves to the eternal flames of hell as well.  You have My Commandments to love Me and your neighbor.  In order to enter heaven, a soul needs to repent of its sins, and accept Me as Lord and Savior of its life.  Even on earth you have punishment for crimes against others.  I am infinitely merciful, but I am infinitely just as well.  If the devil or certain faiths can get you to believe that there is no punishment for sin in hell, or that the demons to not exist, then these evil ones could cause you to be lost forever in hell.  I call people to love Me, but I do not force My love on them, because I want them to love Me of their own free will.  When Adam and Eve sinned, they were punished with death, sickness, and the need to work for a living.  You all are weak to sin, but I came to the earth to sacrifice My life to atone for all of your sins.  I offer everyone salvation, if they accept Me and seek My forgiveness.  If there were no punishment for sin, then I would not have died to save souls from hell.  In conclusion, there is an eternal judgment to hell’s fires for those souls who reject Me and fail to love Me.  There is also a beautiful place in heaven that awaits souls who repent of their sins and love Me.  I have given you My sacraments for grace, and you have Confession where you are absolved of your sins, when you are sorry and repent.  There is also a purgatory where souls, who are not condemned to hell, need to be purified and make reparation for their past sins.  My justice is carried out as all souls are brought to their judgment, when they have to make an accounting for all of their actions during their life on earth.”
