You Appreciate Man’s Help
More Than Mine
Trust, in order to be complete, should not depend on any human element either today or tomorrow. For the lukewarm it is necessary to find human support because they do not find stability in Me; but My chosen ones should expect it all. I have directed many through the road of perfect trust, but few have arrived where I had called them because, in the blindness of their intelligence, they appreciate man’s help rather then mine. They have believed more in the word of a creature than in that of the Creator. For that reason, there is a crowd of discontented people who are at a standstill at My Father’s house. They are determined and indecisive, dissatisfied and opposed, and they implore Me with desires and words to give them what they long for. Perhaps I do not hear their sighs, do not understand what they long for?
Well I hear them but I pretend not to hear. To these determined and indecisive ones, I have prepared to give them much, much more and My Love forbids Me to listen to them. Many go back because they do not want to understand Me! Many discontented ones ask for a crumb of bread, while I want to give them a magnificent banquet! Courage, My creatures! I want to tell you, My love, the most sublime saints lived similar games and now they rejoice for having left that mouthful with which they would have momentarily satisfied their hunger, because even before calling them to Glory, I made them sit at a table in which they ate, not human crumbs, but the substance and life of My Divinity.
My creatures, satisfy yourselves in Me, because I am eternal and substantial nourishment; consume the chalices I present to you, because in them you will find everlasting sweetness.
What does it matter to the hunter to hurl himself between thicket and thorns, as long as he can reach his prey? I am your prey and I will allow Myself to be completely seized by you when you will have fallen completely into My Love. No mouthfuls for you, I do not wish to give you pieces of bread because I love you with predilection. I want to give you victory over yourselves, not a passing conquest, but an eternal one of such Goodness that encloses all good…

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.
