Know Better the Sower of Discord
Crueler than the worst tyrant is the devil that tries to subjugate the greatest possible number of souls, with astuteness and deceits. He wants to have a kingdom in which, without being seen, he would be heard willingly and not by force as it happens in his reign of hate, fury and discord.
He wants vainly to snatch away from Me the power that My Father has given Me and of which I am very jealous. He takes pleasure in the acquiescence of humans and he boasts of this among his own.
It is necessary that you know better the purposes of the sower of discord so as to be able to confront him and beat him. It is necessary to see in the tempter the procedure that distinguishes him amongst all the sinners, in order to give him the lesson he deserves. And I listen to you attentively when you ask for refuge and strength to combat the filthy one, the lying detractor of My power.
Know, children, that in guiding you, having some contact with the enemy is necessary because I want to unite you to Myself in combat with him, so that later I can glorify you as conquerors of he who hates Me. If these combats were not given, My work of Love would not be complete; therefore, it is not necessary to have fear. Confidence in Me and fear, not of Satan, but of yourselves – this is enough to obtain the victory.
Know that there does not exist a greater disgrace for him, plague and condemnation from Heaven, than seeing himself beaten by any person. Having experienced such defeats, he always comes back for his satanic pleasure of making war, destroying what I have given to men with so much generosity.
If he would not put obstacles, one could stay longer in the state of Grace. But by My giving him permission, the rebel would like to split My structures, without taking into consideration that I, many times, serve Myself of his work in order to take a soul to the opposite of what he has schemed.
He who laments over the work of the evil one, must be aware of these aspects:
- he would not be better than Satan if I abandoned him to himself;
- and the fact that I would have a human experience is a very major reason to accept, as desired by God, the annoyances of Lucifer or of his perfidious comrades of disgrace.
Do not be terrified, have fear, or uncertainty, but rather have a firm confidence in My power, and I shall make you participants of My Wisdom to defeat our common enemy. You do not see him, but he is present and being astute, he presumes to be what he is not, but I dominate and I defeat him, and one look from Me makes him run far away.
I tell you today and when it happens, every word of Mine will confirm how much I love you and how I seek to protect you in all things…
