Jesus said: “My people, in today’s Gospel I spoke to Nicodemus about being born again in the Spirit which he did not understand: (Jn 3:5,6) ‘Amen, amen, I say to thee, unless a man be born again of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.’ It was My death and Resurrection that has enabled everyone the opportunity to have eternal life with Me in heaven. Being born in this life only concerns you with an earthly existence. Being born in the Holy Spirit means you are first sacramentally gifted in grace by Baptism and Confirmation to have the ability to come to know Me in faith. Faith is truly a gift which means there needs to be a spiritual commitment to believe in Me and follow My Commandments, as well as consecrating everything over to Me. This commitment means that you accept Me as Master over your life, and that I am truly your Savior. Together with My gift on the cross, My gift of faith through the sacraments, and your personal repentance and acceptance of Me, you will be open to eternal life in My Kingdom. It is by this process of conversion to the faith and being lived out in life that you are reborn in the Spirit.”
Jesus said: “My people, there are many earthly addictions in this world, and they all have demons associated with them. In the beginning letting something control you briefly does not seem threatening at first. Gradually, it becomes like a spider’s web where it is almost impossible by yourself to stop your addiction. In the vision you are seeing how computer games have a fascination to play, but they can control you in an addictive way if you allow them. My message to you, that I have given many times, is do not allow anything of this world to so control you that you cannot stop. Even if you need to seek counseling or treatment to bring your addiction to an end, it is much better than letting these demons have control over you. In some cases exorcism prayers or deliverance prayers may be required to help someone break any addiction. Substance abuse addictions are even more troublesome than computer addictions. Treat all potential addictions with respect, and do not start the one drink or one computer game that could control you, especially if you have had bad experiences before. Focus on Me more in your prayers so you are led by My mission than your own desires for pleasure. The devil is waiting at the door to entice you into his addictive temptations. Ask My help and refuse all of these enticements.”
