DEMONS & SPIRITUAL WARFARE

SPIRITUAL WARFARE: 25 TRUTHS

Christ is speaking to St. Faustina who lives in a convent about the 25 truths about demons and spiritual warfare.

Heaven Hell Spiritual Warfare

Jesus began, “My daughter, I want to teach you about spiritual warfare(Diary 1760)(The Lord’s words are in bold text; commentaries follow.)

spiritual warfare

  1. Never trust in yourself but abandon yourself totally to My Will.

Trust is a spiritual weapon. Trust is part of the shield of faith that St. Paul mentions in the following chapter six of Ephesians: the armor of God. Abandonment to God’s will is an act of trust; faith in action dispels evil spirits.

  1. In desolation, darkness and various doubts, have recourse to Me and to your spiritual director. He will always answer you in My name.

In times of spiritual warfare, immediately pray to Jesus. Invoke His Holy Name that is feared in the netherworld. Bring darkness into the light by telling a spiritual director or confessor and follow his/her instruction.

  1. Do not bargain with any temptation; lock yourself immediately in My Heart.

NEVER FACE THE FUTURE ALONE

You Will Never Face the Future Alone.

How worthwhile are you? You are infinitely valuable to God. First, God created you. Second, Jesus died for you. Third, he puts his Spirit within you. Fourth, he wants you to be with him forever in eternity. That’s how valuable you are to God. You are infinitely valuable to God.

Face Future Trust

There is nothing to fear when you know God is near. On your own you might drown, but God has said, “I will never abandon you or leave you” Hebrews 13:5 Some of you feel alone right now. You may feel it, but you’re not! You’re not alone. God sees what you’re going through. God cares about what you’re going through. God’s going through that situation with you, and He will help you out if you trust Him.

Face Future Trust

The ultimate test of faith is not how loudly you praise God in happy times but how deeply you trust him in dark times.Face Future Trust Continue reading NEVER FACE THE FUTURE ALONE

CATHOLICS OFFERING A BETTER LIFE

 A BETTER LIFE

The mission of Catholics is the offering a better life to people. Yet, organizations like churches tend to become preoccupied with day to day problems and pressures.

 If you went to an ice cream store and there was no ice cream, there is a problem. A local church community can go year after year with almost no outreach to the “unchurched” in their area and yet think there is no problem. Let me tell you, there is a problem. It may be simply that Catholics are not excited about sharing our good news that knowing and following Christ is the best way to live.

In the early days, the Church was unstoppable; they followed a simple strategy. They were courageous in telling their story and they made people feel welcome in their community. They invited people to their outreach events for lack of a proper word. 

They received help from the Holy Spirit.

Better Life

But why hasn’t the Glory of the Holy Spirit visited charismatic churches in a big way?

The Holy Spirit showers His disciples with numerous gifts including the gift of healing and the power to deliver away evil spirits. He is as active today as He was 2000 years ago. He provides the necessary tools to disciples who are missionary-oriented. This was part of Jesus’ marching orders:

He (Jesus) said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons...they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”                                                                                       Mark 16:  15-18
