The religious leadership 2000 years ago clamored to be emulated. Their desire was to be honored and revered. They were spiritually arrogant and purposely placed themselves on a pedestal to receive everyone’s praise.
The high and lofty one who lives in eternity, the Holy One, says this: “I live in the high and holy place with those whose spirits are contrite and humble. I restore the crushed spirit of the humble and revive the courage of those with repentant hearts.” Isaiah 57:15
“A humble person has no trouble giving another a higher place than himself. He also acknowledges the greatness of God and how little he knows. A humble person is gentle and never arrogant. He does not show off to make an impression but remains in the truth. He does not rely on his own words but on the Word of God. A humble person cares for others and wishes all to advance. He is quick to pardon and never holds grudges.
He knows that he is weak and in need of God’s strength at every moment. He has no problem to ask another for help and he is always asking the Father for His grace.“
The above messages came to Father Melvin Doucette.
In the Sermon on the Mount, many things that have earthly value are overturned, showing that in Your Kingdom things stand on different, purer standards.
“God blesses those who are poor and realize their need for him, [poor in spirit] for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.” Matthew 5:3
JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU.
Pride is the Cause of Much Evil.
“I love you.
If you are a wise person, you would listen and follow what your Creator tells you. You will not be filled with pride and think you are a law unto yourself. In your poverty of spirit, you will accept to be led by your Father in heaven. You will also worship and adore God and show your love for Him by following the commandments.
Let us look at sin today. Sin is a deliberate offense against God. The root of sin is pride by which a person refuses to obey the law of God. The sinner considers himself or herself equal to God and he or she will not serve. By sin, you break the relationship with the Father, who gives you everything that is good. By committing sin, you break the relationship with Me who redeemed you. You chase Me away from your heart. It expels Me from your life and leaves you in darkness.
Pride is the cause of much evil in the world. A proud person thinks that he or she is equal to God and does not need any help from Me. That person will fall sooner than later. I love a humble person whose trust is in Me.
Your pride is an obstacle to our friendship. It has to be tempered by humility, the virtue which will bring you back to reality.
Many of you, My people, are stubborn for you do not listen to Me. When I call you, you turn your back to Me. Your pride will be your downfall. You are bent on following your own will which is often contrary to mine. If you follow that way, you are on the way to disaster.
The truth is that without Me you cannot do any good. Look into your heart and you will see that you have sinned. You have committed sins and because of those sins I had to suffer My cruel passion and die a horrible death on the cross. I did it all for you whom I love with all My heart.
Be humble and come to ask Me for what you need. Place your life in My hands and let My blood wash you clean. Submit yourself to My will and live according to My word.
Control your anger, your passions, and your tongue. When you are humiliated, think of the many times I was humiliated because of your sins.
Accept humiliations out of love for Me. Do not hold any resentment against any one but forgive them completely with all your heart.
The first of the Beatitudes reads, ‘Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.’
I address each one of you, My friend, with these words of the Beatitudes. A person who is poor in spirit is one who believes and knows the Creator who is Lord over all and has all power.
It is the poor that have great trust in the Father and in Me. You should be always grateful for everything you receive even the least significant.
I will come one day and take such a person with Me to heaven. My dear brother and sister, do not be haughty, bossy, controlling, or proud.
Learn from Me for I am gentle and humble of heart. You will be blessed indeed if you love Me. You truly will be mine; I love you.”
The above messages came to Father Melvin Doucette:
Fr. Melvin Doucette was ordained to the priesthood on and joined the Missionaries of Africa for 29 years in Africa. In contemplative prayer every morning, Fr. Doucette receives by interior locution “messages from heaven” to share with the public.
“Let simplicity and humility be the characteristic traits of your soul. As waters flow from the mountains down into the valleys, so, too, do God’s graces flow only into humble souls.” Diary 55
While the Bible gives us some clues, the 20th century mystic St. Faustina received a particularly vivid vision, which she recorded in her diary. The messages include details of heaven, hell and spiritual warfare.
THE PROBLEM WITH PRIDE
God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions show a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17 (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE.
The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.
Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in China in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today.
In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family. The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ. No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY.
BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!
Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is a relationship with God, your Creator, in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles. How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus Christ.
Many Christian disciples use the gift of healing. They also use deliverance to deliver away evil spirits influencing people. These evil spirits cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress. Only the Name of Jesus Christ makes healing and deliverance possible.
HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?
Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth.
Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.
This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.
He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical sense of peace.
DREAMS AND VISIONS
God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart. God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.
