The Door to Heaven – Extract No. DH-73
Beloved one, how could I miss this appointment when it is your Anniversary? Let us talk a bit about prayer. I want you to write down for all men what I am going to say to you about this topic, though you must put these Messages away until I authorize you to use them. They need to receive the running, limpid water to care for the garden in which their God lives permanently.
I want you to always see Me as your help and source of life. This means that you must put your temptations of falseness, lies, the sweet attractions of the world to one side and to come and delight in My Love. If you are at peace let My Love be the catalyst for your enthusiasm, of your drive... Love Me with all your heart and let Me be your Teacher. Read John 16.
I love you so much that, however many sinners deserve to go to Hell, I do not want any of them to be lost. I want to save My creature because the moment of opening the Door to Heaven to them has been fraught with too much pain. I want all of you to recover your grace and obtain eternal salvation through confession. Without prayer, the punishment cannot be suspended because, how can you ask for it?
I say to you in Jeremiah 23,3 so that you may ask Me. In John 15,7 I invite you to ask Me.
You, men, when you receive a request from someone who has offended you, normally reproach them for their fault. I reproach you for the offenses that you have committed against My sanctity, but at the moment when I see your faithfulness, I hear your entreaties and I forgive you. I listen to your requests, as long as they do not oppose your sanctification or the salvation of your soul.
Why do you complain about Me? Complain about yourselves as you do not receive graces since you do not know how to ask for them. Sometimes through a lack of faith and others, because when you know you lack merits, you do not ask My Father in My Name or by My merits.
Those who govern the world grant a limited number of people an audience and not many times a year. But I grant audiences always and to whoever requests one. I listen to all My children.
Beloved one, tell man not to let the glory of the world attract him in such a way that he draws away from Me. And you, pray for wisdom so that other people’s errors and falsities might not upset you and be a disadvantage… Let Me prevent any mistake that might affect your progress. Beware of those sweet deceptions. Pray and be strong through perseverance. May your spirit not be broken with invalid arguments.
I am embracing you, now, I am teaching you - through My Spirit - to love Me unconditionally and to give Me your whole being so that you can reap the rewards and be with Me forever in My infinite Love.
Prayer is necessary to achieve eternal life. Teach everyone about the value of prayer, since I, Myself, became their debtor with My promises. In John 16,24, in Matthew 26,41 and Luke 18,1 I give them My seal. In Ecclesiasticus (Sirach) 2,10 a Prophet tells them that there has not been, nor will there be, anybody who asks and God does not listen. Did any of My Prophets ever lie?
I promised you that I would protect whoever placed their hope in Me... I invite you to do it; how can I deceive you?
We will continue with this topic tomorrow. Now, go to bed, My sweet child, and lie down on this ardent heart, letting its flames consume you in the Love that I sowed just over 53 years ago in your mother's womb…
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.
