Thursday, October 15, 2009: (St. Theresa of Jesus, Avila)

Jesus said: “My people, many times you use mirrors to shave, makeup your face, or try on clothes to see how they fit. This type of reflection is used for your outward appearance. A spiritual reflection requires some quiet time to dwell on how you act and appear to others. If you are not being a good example to others, then that time is well spent in correcting your future behavior. In some ways you act out of habit, and it is hard to break bad habits of anger, swearing, or drinking too much. You are trying to be focused on Me, and by imitating My life, you can change your bad habits. Correcting your faults is a life long work, so do not be discouraged if you fail at times. You can come to Me in Confession to restore grace in your soul as you ask Me for forgiveness. If you recognize your bad actions, and are determined to change your ways, then you are making progress in your spiritual life. If you continue in your bad behavior without either recognizing your sin, or seeing the need to correct it, then you should be praying more in your life to have your eyes of faith opened to make sure you are not a hypocrite. This is another reason to have a good confessor or spiritual director. It is good to make some time to reflect on your actions and your progress toward perfecting your life. Contemplative prayer is also good so you can talk to Me in your own words of informal prayer. At times you need to calm down from all of life’s activities and see if you are doing things out of love for Me or not. If you are, then you are on the right road to holiness. Avoid being selfish in your intentions, so I can use you for the mission I have given you. See the need for constant reflective prayer in your life.”
Prayer Group:
Jesus said: “My people, you remember what the angels said on that glorious morning of My Resurrection. He said: ‘You are looking for the Lord Jesus’ Body, but He is risen and is not here, He will see you in Galilee.’ Another angel said to the women: ‘Why are you looking for the Living One among the dead? He has risen on the third day as he told you.’ I gave many appearances to show My disciples that I have truly risen. This is the Good News of salvation that I died for your sins, and I arose from the dead as My disciples will also rise on the last day. This is your promise that one day you will be with Me in paradise, even as I promised the good thief who called on My mercy.”
Jesus said: “My people, it is obvious how many people put decorations on their houses in preparation for Halloween. There are some misgivings about celebrating a feast for demons and witches which is more about an evil feast day. The real feast is the next day that celebrates All Saints’ Day which is more important. Some are curious and fascinated by evil potions and the occult which you should avoid. You have demon possessions that result from such curiosity. Giving out candy and helping the children is one thing, but be wary of any curiosity in following occult practices. Ask My angels to protect you from any evil influences.”
Jesus said: “My people, you need to protect your children from the subtle influence in Harry Potter books and movies that could lead them into witchcraft, spells, and seance meetings. All of the tarot cards, fortune telling, palm reading, Ouija boards, and New Age teachings are all to be avoided because demons could possess people through these means. By avoiding these movies, you will not be tempted to experiment out of curiosity. You are attacked enough by the devil’s temptations without giving in to their worship and their evil meetings. You are praying for good things for people, while covens worship Satan and pray for evil things over people. Pray for those who are drawn into these evil things, that their souls will be saved from hell.”
Jesus said: “My people, some people are attracted to follow New Age principles and teachings. They have many esoteric practices, demonic potions, and crystals that have curses, spells, or incantations on them that can invite demonic control, even as through Voodoo practices. These people are controlled by astrology and the worship of gods and goddesses. It may take many prayers, fastings, and exorcisms to break people from any evil influence. Possessions by demons and coven meetings are real as they kill animals and mock stolen Communions at their black masses. This is truly why there is a battle of good and evil, and you should be aware of these evil ones who are trying to win souls for Satan.”
Jesus said: “My people, you need to be on guard to protect yourselves from demons and occult people who are trying to attack you. Wear your scapulars, rosaries, Benedictine crosses, holy water, and blessed salt as your weapons against the evil ones. When you feel a coldness and a lack of love coming from someone, there is a chance that you are dealing with a possessed or obsessed person of evil. If you do not have an exorcism priest, then pray with a group in saying your St. Michael prayers and binding of evil spirits prayers. Pray your guardian angel prayer and invoke My Name, ‘Jesus’, over any persons of evil. By being prepared to fight these evil ones, you will not have any fear of them.”
Jesus said: “My people, beware that many addictions of alcohol, drugs, pornography, sexual sins, or overeating, all have demons attached to these bad habits. Once you have been weakened by such sinful behavior, then you are more susceptible to repeat these sins. Do not use pleasures and highs to constantly satisfy your senses, but treat these things with caution that could lead you into worse sins. This is why people with addictions need prayers, fasting, exorcisms, and miracles to even want to be treated for their addictions. Address the demons first and follow this with counseling and rehabilitation. This is another place where you are facing the battle between good and evil.”
Jesus said: “My people, in addition to wearing your blessed sacramentals, I encourage you to improve your spiritual life by becoming close to Me in prayer and My sacraments. You have the grace of Confession to cleanse your soul of sin and restore My grace in your soul. You have My Mass and Communion to heal the wounds of your sins, and bring protection stronger from your guardian angel. Pray your three or four rosaries every day to counter the evil in your world. Visit Me at Adoration or at My tabernacle to receive My words into your heart and soul when you discern things. Loving Me every day in taking up your daily cross will help you battle the evil one’s temptations during the day. Help others as well in their prayer life to be converted and protected by us from the evil ones.”
