Thursday, June 9, 2011: (St. Ephrem)
Jesus said: “My people, your farmers take a risk to grow their crops every year. Many farmers got a late start to getting their crops planted because of a cool, wet spring. Now they will need optimal sun and rain to even obtain a marginal crop. If some places have very hot drought conditions or too much rain, then your crops will be reduced further in yield. I have told you to expect continued natural disasters which could even affect more of your crops. Now, you are seeing a considerable amount of fires in the drought areas. If your food becomes scarce, you will see again why it is prudent to have a year’s supply of food for any possible disruptions in your food supply. Pray that people will have enough to eat because some countries already have people dying of starvation.”

Prayer Group:
Jesus said: “My people, this vision of a flame in the middle of a bird cage represents how your souls are prisoners of the worldly distractions around you. The flame represents the grace of the Holy Spirit which you can call on to release your soul so you will be free of the controls of the world. You have the feast of Pentecost coming on Sunday, so call on the Holy Spirit to give you the gifts that you need to carry out your appointed mission in this life.”

Jesus said: “My people, this special water that you see in the vision represents the Baptism of the Holy Spirit that I poured over My apostles. This is how they experienced the tongues of fire over them in the Upper Room. St. John baptized with water, but I baptized with the Holy Spirit in the image of these tongues of fire. My faithful receive this same Baptism when you receive the Holy Spirit in your Confirmation. So as you are baptized and confirmed, My faithful are called to evangelize souls to Me.”

Jesus said: “My people, this experience of being slain in the Spirit does not cause everyone to fall to the ground. When you do not fall down, you are blessed in the Spirit just the same. Those, who do fall down, are graced with souls and hearts that are more open to receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit. These souls, who are slain, are given a grace that gives them peace and rest in the Spirit.”

Jesus said: “My people, you have accepted the symbol of a white dove to represent the peace of the Holy Spirit. This vision of a dove resting on a branch for five hours was your real life experience at this shrine in Betania, Venezuela. This was a special blessing for your pilgrimage to have the grace of the Holy Spirit among you. The Holy Spirit is the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity, and the Three of Us are one God. Continue your novena to the Holy Spirit as you prepare for the great feast of Pentecost.”

Jesus said: “My people, you have been blessed to have the Word of God available to you whenever you read the Bible. It is by the power of the Holy Spirit that the authors of these books were able to write the Word of God down without any interference of the evil one. This is why you can trust the words of Scripture as true, and from God. If you follow the words of Scripture, you have sufficient revelation to be saved in heaven. You have seen various people who have prophetic gifts. These are gifts of the Holy Spirit. You, yourself, know that you are able to write My messages by the power of the Holy Spirit helping you. The Holy Spirit also directs the words of your talks as you pray for His help. All My faithful can call on the Holy Spirit to give them the gifts that they need to accomplish their mission.”

Jesus said: “My son, you and others have been given the gift of some communication with deceased souls. This gift is not something that should be sought for any gain, but it comes freely by the souls who desire to communicate. The words that you receive from such souls are enabled by the Holy Spirit as He helps you to write them down. This is a gift that cannot be demanded by other living people, but they should accept what comes without trying to predispose you. Be thankful to the Holy Spirit for all the gifts and charisms that He bestows on people.”

Jesus said: “My people, I have formed My Church and I have set St. Peter as a rock to be the first Pope. All throughout history the Holy Spirit has guided these leaders in their words and their proclamations. This is another grace and force that has enabled My Church to survive through the years, despite the evil one’s temptations. Continue to pray to the Holy Spirit to inspire My Church’s leaders to proclaim the truth without any heresies.”
