PRIDE AND HUMILITY

SPIRITUALLY ARROGANT

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.

“Far be it from You, Lord; this shall not happen to You!” MATTHEW 16:22


See how many times the disciples tried to correct the Lord. See how many times they argued with the Lord. See how many times their thoughts contradicted the Master. See how many times they urged Him to take action. And the Lord, ever patient, would correct them.

 

In every case, we see that He is the Lord, and they are the disciples. The roles must never be confused. He is the Master, and we are His servants. We do not command Him, but He commands us. We do not lead Him, but He leads us. He was not created for us, but we were created for Him. He does not serve us according to our pleasure, but we serve Him according to His pleasure. So we must be adjusted to Him, and not the other way around. The Lord will never apologize to us and say, “I’m sorry, I was wrong. We’ll do it your way.” How laughable! How absurd! But we often live as if we expect Him to do that very thing. We have not humbled ourselves.

Marvin Pressman

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

PRIDE: TO ACQUIRE POWER

TO ACQUIRE POWER

Do you find yourself continually striving to acquire power? When you give advice, do you want to know whether it is being followed or not? There is a pattern: when you offer help, you expect to be thanked; when you give money, you expect it to be spent your way; when you do something good, you want to be remembered. You are concerned that you not be forgotten and that somehow you will live on in the thoughts and deeds of others.

PRIDE: TO ACQUIRE POWER

“Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you”                                                                                                                                                    James 4:10                                                                                                                                               There is blessing found in humility. When we hold on to pride, there are consequences that result.

THOSE OPPOSING CATHOLIC ORTHODOX UNITY

CHRISTIAN UNITYCATHOLIC ORTHODOX UNITY

“Vassula, when I see how so many of My sacerdotal souls deny my signs and My Works, how they treat those to whom I have given My graces and remind the world I am among you, I grieve … they are unwillingly damaging My Body, I ache!  They deny My Works, thus making deserts instead of making the land fertile! ”                                                                                 Vassual:  Lord, if they deny Your works there must be reasons!

CATHOLIC ORTHODOX UNITY

Vassula writes down the messages which she receives in a stately handwriting, quite distinct from her own.   She hears, interiorly, a voice first, then , when she has to write down what she has heard, her writing changes.                                                                                  TLIG.org

Spiritually they are dead; they are deserts themselves and when they spot a flower in that great wilderness they made, they rush to it and trample on it, destroying it.”  Why?

Why? it is a misfit in their wilderness, they make sure that their desert stays arid! I find no holiness in them, none, what have they to offer Me?             Protection Lord! Protection not to distort Your Word!

“No, they are not protecting Me, they are denying Me as God; they deny My Infinite Wealth, they deny My Omnipotency, they are comparing themselves to Me; do you know what they are doing? they are promoting atheism, they are multiplying My scourgers, they are increasing spiritual deafness, they are not defending Me, they are deriding Me!”                                                                                           July 7, 1987

“What grieves Me most is to see My own sacerdotal souls doubting My Works, refusing to believe, thus “remoting” Me instead of promoting MeHow could you possibly compare My works with human works; science cannot be compared with Heavenly Works, it is as if you want to compare Me with men!”                                                                   July 9, 1987

Philosophy cannot be compared to spirituality, never; that is one of the main reasons why all those in power and who call themselves wise will mock you, will scorn you, will deject you, will scrutinize you; so be prepared, beloved, for the wolves to hound you; do not fear, I will be near you.”                                                                                           August 5, 1987

Why this arrogance among the nations, these futile plots among the people? I had selected Peter, a man after My own Heart, the rock, on whom I would build My Church; why then distort My Command?                              Whom are You referring to, Lord?

I am speaking to those who scheme and plot against My foundation, do you not realize that your plots will lay futile?                                                                         Lord, I do not know whom are you referring to.

I know, Vassula, all this is obscure to you, but it is as clear as day for those deceivers! My Eyes are fixed upon them; My sword lifted and ready to strike; they know themselves and believe Me, their days are numbered; yes, cast your eyes around you, deceivers! Why are you surprised? You will perish for I am doing something in these days that it will be hard to believe had you been told of it! ”         November 8, 1987

When our Lord … was talking about those working for UNITY. Usually when the ecclesiastical authorities meet to be able to find a solution, what happens is the following: the one who comes to face the other one hopes that the one facing him will be the one will give in ‘something’; in the end it ends up by no one giving much. This was given me to understand by the Lord, yesterday night.                                                                                                                                                 December 8, 1987 Continue reading THOSE OPPOSING CATHOLIC ORTHODOX UNITY

WHAT IS A TRUE LIFE IN GOD? 2

TRUE LIFE IN GOD

Untitled-3 Untitled-4 Untitled-5

Vassula Reydon received a host of messages from God, which she compiled in her notebooks, called True Life in God. The following excerpts come from her conversations with Jesus:

“Let it be known that My Holy Shroud is indeed authentic, It is the same that covered Me; blessed by Me.”                            October 2, 1987

 “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me  to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
                                                                                         Luke 4:18-19

“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways  and My thoughts than your thoughts.”  Isaiah 55:9

“Bless the LORD, O my soul; and all my being, bless His holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits. He pardons all your iniquities, He heals all your ills. He redeems your life from destruction, He crowns you with kindness and compassion.”                                                                                     Psalms 103:1-4

“Come and listen to My Heart’s desires: for the sake of the love … Are you still willing to follow in My stride? Are you willing to sacrifice your time for My Interests?  Are you ready to crown My Plan with success so that all Heaven with joy hails My victory?  Are you willing to respond to My needs with fervor and anxiety to please Me, your Saviour?

If you allow Me to use you, I will invest your soul with My Divinity, with My Splendor, with My Seal …. we have only a mile to go, My friends, only a mile longer.”                                                                          May 21, 1994

“I enjoy sharing My plans with you; this Work is not yours but Mine; I just need your will and your consent to complete My Work; are you still willing to remain the instrument of My desires?”             June 17, 1994

“Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”                                                                                             James 1: 22

Honor your Father and your Mother

“Scriptures say: “with all your heart honor your father, never forget the birth pangs of your mother; remember that you owe your birth to them; how can you repay them for what they have done for you?”  Ecclesiastes 4:14  and you are to follow this Commandment: honor your father and your mother; why are so many of you surprised that so few follow this Commandment? Foolish and wicked notions led these children astray into worshiping empty productions, filling their spirit from early childhood with a spirit of sluggishness; many parents have not given their children that ever flowing Source of My Spirit; Wisdom was calling them day and night, but this generation barred Her out, and every day that passed, your children strayed further and further from the Path leading to Me; if any one, young or old, acknowledges Me as their God, they would reflect My Image, and out of love, would obey and honor their parents as they would be obeying and honoring Me; but all things that are conformed to the world have depraved these children from coming to Me; love is missing.” 

“This generation’s minds are empty and so Darkness came and filled them up; for the image of becoming a philosopher is more important in their eyes than My Eternal Glory;  then, their lack of holiness is consumed by passion and from early youth go out and dishonor their own bodies.”                                                                                       August 5,1990

Humility

To begin with, God knew you from all eternity: to be weak and wretched, but He love you just the same. Your ineffable weakness and misery attracts Him. He rejoices on how He will remedy your injustices.

“Children are God’s weakness, because they let Him form them. In the same way, when we make ourselves smaller humbly, we are easier to handle. Our insufficiency will glorify His Suffice.”        January 30, 1986

“Offer God your will in surrendering to Him. This is the most beautiful thing that you can offer God.  Seek God’s interests and not yours.”

“I am limiting you for the reasons I have; guiding you blindly pleases Me, it glorifies Me; then, I want that this become a lesson for those whose wisdom blinds them; I want you innocent, simple; guiding you in this special way was so that My religious souls understand that I, the Lord, give abundantly.”                                                                September 23, 1987

Spirituality

“Divine Works are beyond human understanding; many souls do not respond to My Works for these souls seldom want to change;”

 “These souls are attached to the world, to what is material; even though they call themselves spiritual, 1 Corinthians 2:14 they are not since they cling on what they see with their physical eyes and touch with their body; they are stubborn, living aridly; their heart will not open to let My Divinity pour into them;”

“Yes, there are many factors that obstruct them from dwelling in My Light; I have said and will repeat again and again these very important words: “anyone who does not welcome the Kingdom of God like a little child, will never enter it”; be innocent, believe in a child-like-faith, then My Divine Light will encompass you and you, like a flower, will face the sun and open, allowing My Light to pour in you.”              May 16, 1988
