Away from the Noise of the
World You Will Be Near
Away from the noise of the world you will be near Me. Near and not far, faithful and secure, good and not tasteless: these are the three stages that you must fulfill in order to possess Me much more than in the past… You must study from the book of life, and only at times will you be able to raise your eyes to see Me in a less indirect way. I am preparing you for the eternal nuptials and I am jealous of your soul. Summon up courage from time to time, consider that I guide you; furthermore, I bring you to Me because away from Me nothing can happen. Sin itself that is outside My Will, cannot be committed without man making use of what I have given Him and maintained.
Hence, how wise is he who allows himself to be led by Me! It seems that the creature abandoned to Me does not act, nevertheless, he acts with so much effectiveness that he has the divine strength in him and diffuses it to those who are near and far. On the other hand, what ignorance to want to govern himself!
You are familiar with some roads that lead to surrender. I Myself led you and manifested to you beauty and difficulties because I love you very much. Now, look how your experiences will be transformed into a new experience, holier and more divine. Enough with abandonment: now you must travel the road of uniformity. I wait for you here; I direct you and here you will find My stability.
I speak to you in the name of Love. I am the Love that attracted you; you are the spark I have released. Do you see how much human trash lies in the mud of sin? My spark, where do you want to go: do you want to return to Me or attach yourself to that trash? Do not tell Me that you do not want to choose, because you are capable of doing it.
Now that you have chosen, I will reward you: know that soon I will give exterior shape to your election and she, whom you think about with true filial enthusiasm, will be joyous. Together you will do her work. Act without hesitation.

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.
