Surrender Your Love to Me and the Desire
to Sin Will Not Remain in You
God the Father
[Message for a dear friend]
My son, just as I have determined the number of days in life, the degrees of sanctity or of talent I wish to give to each man, so I have also determined the number of sins I want to forgive in each one of you. When the measure is full, there is no place for forgiveness.
I am ready to heal those to have the desire and will to mend their lives. But I cannot forgive he who lives stubbornly in sin. I forgive sins but not the intention of sinning.
You cannot protest that I forgive a hundred sins to one, and take away life and condemn to Hell when a third or fourth sin was committed. How many have been sent to Hell for the first sin they committed! Was not a fig tree cursed when first seen?
Do not say then: "Just as God forgave my other sins, He will forgive me this one." Do not say it, because if you add a new sin to the one that was forgiven, you must fear this one being added to the first and in that manner the number will be completed, and you abandoned.
Many reach the determined number, are assaulted by death and dragged to eternal fire. They live in delight and in an instant go down to the grave.
Be sure that I await and suffer, but I do not await and suffer forever... I have patience, but once I reach the limit, I punish the first sins and the last. And the greater My patience, the greater the punishment. Woe be to those who turn back to vomit after seeing the light!
Surrender your love and in so doing, the desire to sin again will not remain in you. I promise to help you in your effort... You need to walk in faith, hope, truth and love. If you walk through faith, the senses will be eradicated of false hopes and you will no longer seek worldly goods – created by the hands of men - but then, when living in faith, the power of My Grace will rise to assist you.
I solemnly tell you that the way of love is refined from the inside. When you let it go, it carefully searches a place to rest but, committed to you, always returns faithfully to you, because the more you let it go, give it freedom, the more it will return to you, increased... As your senses were eradicated from created things, it remains firm in faith and faith becomes the infinite fountain, the gateway where love resides.
In the same way, when you abandon yourself in Divine Providence, in such abandonment you can embrace all your being in Me. This can only be brought about by love. When you abandon yourself in Me, I ensure a complete union: only My Will can satisfy you. Be sure that each moment is special, because I use love to reveal My Will.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Through the rest of 2002, Scoop will be publishing a series of daily reflections on spiritual matters from Bolivian author Katya Rivas. Rivas, has received an official imprimatur from the Catholic Church for several books she says she was instructed to write by Jesus Christ, Mary and various Angels. Scoop’s extract, above, comes from Rivas’s book “The Door to Heaven”. In 1999 Katya Rivas was the subject of a top-rating documentary show hosted by Mike Willessee (see Scoop TV review - Jesus Christ Tells FOXNews He Wants To Hug World and Scoop Images ). More recently Rivas says she was instructed by Jesus to have her books translated and published on the internet with the intention of having the books distributed to as wide an audience as possible. Several of the books can now be read online at http://www.greatcrusade.org/, and more are coming soon.
