Tuesday, April 23, 2013:
Jesus said: “My people, in Antioch My faithful were called Christians for the first time. Once they were identified, the Romans sought them out for persecution. Even today, Christians are mocked and put down because the evil ones of your society have no love for Me or for God the Father. When you fight against abortion and gay marriage, these evil ones will single you out for persecution in your own land. Those, who follow earthly desires and avoid My Commandments, want to have their earthly pleasures without being criticized for being sinners. You all are sinners, and you all are in need of My forgiveness. This is why you need to evangelize sinners to follow Me, but they will resist your pleas, and you may face prison and persecution because of My Name. Christians are the targets of the evil one world people, so they will eventually have to come to My refuges to protect their souls and their lives.”

Jesus said: “My people, in the early spring it takes time to clean out all the dead branches and debris from the winter. Then you may have to fertilize your lawn so it can green up without so many weeds. Cleaning out the weeds comes later, as well as trimming any bushes. Maintaining a neat yard requires work. Maintaining a pure soul free from sin, also requires work. In the natural world you find defects that require pruning. In the spiritual world you also deal with the consequences of Adam’s sin in trying to prune the body’s desire for pleasures and comforts. The soul has to keep the body in check from its sinful desires. This is why daily prayer and occasional fasting are needed to restrict the body’s wants. Keep striving to keep a pure soul to please Me in how I want you to live. You may need at least monthly Confession to keep your soul pure in My grace. By holding on to peace in your soul, you will be ready to meet Me at your judgment.”
