Sunday, January 9, 2011: (Baptism of Jesus)
Jesus said: “My people, when I was baptized, this represented My institution of this act as a sacrament. By My death on the cross, I paid the price for all of mankind’s sins so that all original sin, and actual sins can be forgiven. Now, when people die, they will not remain in the place of the dead as before because of Adam’s sin. The gates of heaven have now been opened for all who are worthy. Even when you come to Confession and at Baptism, this scrub brush of My grace and absolution washes your souls clean of your sins, and replaces your sins with the grace of My sacrament. Another manifestation at My Baptism is the witness to the Blessed Trinity. You were told of the dove’s presence representing the Holy Spirit, and the words of God the Father were heard: ‘This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.’ My Baptism not only brings your Christmas season to a close, but it also started My public mission as St. John pointed Me out as the ‘Lamb of God’. Then some disciples started following Me as a result.”
