The Door to Heaven – Extract No. DH-93.2
Charity also demands that we be meek with others, especially with our enemies. When someone is annoying and bothers you with their words, reply kindly and you will see that he is immediately placated. However, if you get annoyed and respond harshly, you will increase the annoyance of the other and get more annoyed yourself, so that you will be in danger of losing the soul. When you have exploded with someone, charity demands that you be humble with the person whom you have offended and that you ask for forgiveness.
And, finally, charity also calls you to correct the one who sins and wanders from My path. Is it not cruelty to watch a blind man walk towards the edge of a precipice and not bother to warn him of the danger ahead? We have discussed this before; go back and review it.
There are people who say they love their fellow man, but then they cannot be bothered to make the minimum effort to help people in trouble. To these people I say that giving to others frees a man from death and helps him to receive Mercy and attain everlasting life. Thus, I say to you that just as you judge others, so shall you be judged. This is because I receive all acts of charity done for your brothers just as if they had been done for Me. Make sure you understand that those who have goods in this world and ignore a brother in need, close the gates of Heaven because they do not have the Love of God.
When you are not able to do good to the enemy who persecutes and slanders you, not only do I command you to forgive your enemy, but to pray for him just as I gave you the example on the Cross.
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.
