I Wanted To Die For You
For Me, the miseries of men are the best occasions to prove My omnipotence to them. If the sinner lies prostrated because of his faults, how can I better show him love and power if he moves to desist from sin? Love, because easily I will forgive him; power, because I transform the repugnant one into beauty, and the bad one to good. And of this love, you can give good testimony.
Oh, how beloved you are to Me! I wanted to die for you and I would die again to be able to glorify you next to Me. You form part of a selected group of companion souls of My Passion. And the closer you come to Me, the more you will be tempted; and the more you triumph, the more gifts I shall give you. What more could I give you who struggles only to please Me, while nearly everyone surrounds Me to seek his own interests? Oh, how little they are like Me, the souls who think only of their own gains!
You must understand that My sacrifice was total, that is, a benefit, since from eternity I possess Happiness in essence and My glorified Humanity the same. You cannot add anything to the infinity of My joy, but in an incidental manner.
Do you see how far you have come? Well, I guided you, I moderated you, I conquered you, I stopped you, and I pushed you towards Me. And if I had not done all this, you would now be one of My worst creatures. On the other hand, with My gift of Love, you have become a jewelry case, to which many will have access. Do not suffer, as you are now doing. I order you to write because I am the one who had arranged it in order to confuse those who being fools, think they are wise.
EDITOR’S NOTES: Through the rest of 2003, 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 Great Crusade of Love”. Readers can sign up to recieve daily extracts from Katya Rivas's writings by email at: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/dailykatya/
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. In August 2002 Rivas visited Wellington New Zealand and met with Scoop Editor Alastair Thompson.
