In Matthew Jesus was tested by the Pharisees to give them a sign. They asked him disingenuously ‘Teacher could you give us a sign’. Of course he knew their hearts and that the words they said veiled an overall disbelief that he Jesus was the Son of Man.
During the early stages of receiving messages Jesus taught us much about human nature mainly by trial and error. He knew it would be a wonderful shock for my wife and I to experience Our Lord in this way. My wife as a vessel and myself as a witness.
As a witness I would ask all types of questions. Some of these questions were banal in reflection. Jesus understood my curiosity and kindly gave way and would allow me to know things. We discovered over time that Jesus doesn’t like this. I would say sorry to Jesus and he would reply ‘its ok you are curious’.
Later Jesus would explain that curiosity is not always a good thing. My wife is not curious and is a humble person. She genuinely doesn’t want to know who killed JFK or why the earth was created. My mind is always active and I believe my thinking at times can be entwined with my pride. The heart is more important than the mind. Once the heart changes then the mind does. Not the other way round. Like in cases of evil. A dark heart will create dark thinking then evil actions. It all starts in the heart.
Over time Jesus would indicate that he would speak when he wanted to and revealed what he allowed us to know. Jesus is kind and gentle but he does also need due honour because he is God. We just can’t go up to God and ask this and that.
Jesus ultimately dotes on my wife. He has immense love for her. Also he wants her undivided attention. Over the last month our lives have been arranged in a way that can allow for this. Jesus has told us that my wife has a specific role after the warning. That people will want to experience Him through her and people will be driven to see her for this purpose.
Over the last six weeks my wife has been having spots before her eyes. She has a condition called CNVM which can lead to blindness. This is an upset of course but I also see it as part of Jesus arranging my wife’s life so that she can be closer to him. Hopefully she will not go blind but if she does I can see the purpose.
Jesus’s whole mission with us has been about love. Imparting loving words to my wife and the world. He also has revealed his pain and suffering at being rejected. His words to us are not apocalyptic but about love. Jesus wants people to experience his truth through his loving words. My sense is that because of human curiosity many can be drawn to the curiosity and titillation of apocalyptic prophecy. Words that create shock and worry in my mind are best avoided.Surely trust and prayer are our best routes. Anything that ruins our peace can distract from prayer. It’s clear that there are evil people on earth who are doing Satan’s destructive bidding. How many times do we have to remind ourselves of this? Trust and prayer. Engage the heart in prayer especially in our Rosaries and Divine Mercies.
The world needs this.
