Tuesday, August 30, 2011:
Jesus said: “My people, in the Gospel you read of how I commanded the demon to leave that man. Many of the people of that town marveled at My authority to the demon to leave with My word alone. They did not realize that I was the Second Person of God, but the demons recognized who I was and I told them to be quiet. Some people do not recognize their own demons in their personal addictions. There are demons associated with drinking, smoking, gambling, drugs, computers, and overeating. It is the excessive use of these things that makes them sins because you are abusing your body, and making these things idols instead of following My ways. Make an examination of your own life to see if anything is controlling you. Once you realize any bad habits, then you could work to try and put them out of your life. If you know your addictions and do not do anything to correct them, then you are allowing these demons to control you. Call on My help to rid these demons as I cast the demon out of the person in the Gospel.”

Jesus said: “My people, when I said this storm was a wake-up call, many did not fully comprehend the enormous amount of destruction that could come from wind and rain from such a large storm. As more and more details are discovered of the flooding, roads destroyed, and power outages, people are seeing how much damage was done to the infrastructures of so many states. It is comforting to see how many people reached out to help rescue those in danger. In disasters like this it is important that you help each other to restore roads and electricity. By neighbors helping each other, you can get back to normal means of living. While some jobs were lost, other jobs for repairs are available. Payment for repairs may be a long time coming, so some jobs may be for charity until funds are available. You can see help coming from other states just to provide the needed equipment. Food and water are being rushed to those people who are stranded and homeless. You may be called to donate money, or work to help the people in disaster areas. When I ask you to love your neighbor, this is the best kind of opportunity to offer your services, even if it is done for no payment.”
