That Spirit Is the One
That from Here on Remains with You
I am happy that you seek My consolation and that you place it before everything else. But take heed: I possess in Me the consolation without sharing it with you, just so that, deprived of such sentiment, you will make an effort to thirst.
Do you want peace? Do you seek tranquility? You have it because you are in agreement with Me. You lack the sentiment of peace, you seek pleasant tranquility; but how will it help you now?
Think of Me, not of yourself. Think of My happiness and be happy with it. You truly love Me if you enjoy My tranquil goodness. Of this you can be sure, and surer than ever that you can never go through the grief of not feeling the benefit of My Love.
I call you through impassable roads. Come to the chaste Love; come to the Kingdom where no shade blocks the luminous sun of My intoxicating and inconceivable happiness.
I have spoken to
you; I who am the infinite Love, the Love that picked you
up, wounded from the road of perdition. I have spoken to
you, I who am the
Omnipotence, the Light, and the most perfect Trinity. I have been preparing you and, through you, many brethren attacked by evil today. I have been educating you all, trying to teach you, especially love and unity, and charity among yourselves… If some of you have assimilated and others have not, it is a pity. This Great Crusade of Love is almost over and now you will verify the abandonment.
It will not be for long, do not be afflicted - rest, and wake up… From the road of forgiveness you have come to the road of gratitude, from this one to the love of tenderness, from tenderness to the joy of loving Me and listening, from there to the destruction of your self-esteem in order to continue transforming you completely. By the way, it has been a long time that I have been managing this, and you have now arrived at the golden threshold where it is written: "love is worthy of being loved only for itself."
Knock, even if you do not hear Me, knock again; the great Spirit that has directed you on earth will have you enter into the pure, most ardent love. That Spirit, from here on, remains with you to guide your steps with Wisdom towards the road of love and surrender.
For your consolation and greatest certainty I must assert once more that it is an unworthy spirit, disguised in its favorite vestments of arrogance, division, lies, and deceit, that has approached many of My children with false messages and deceiving prophecies. My little children, several times you have been able to verify it because each prophecy has been cloaked with an element that was never fulfilled.
Therefore, stay where you are, growing together. A little longer and you will have to nourish yourselves with the Banquet that My Mother, the Blessed in Heaven, and I have been serving you with humility, and with concrete things that you have been able to continue verifying. Do not participate in a dangerous yet certainly useless game. Do not allow yourselves to be seduced by the song of the mermaids that sweetens the ear. Do everything possible to remove the cause of hindrance… I do not want to see you disoriented by the gyrations that Satan may do.
Renounce evil, arrogance, and destructive pride; accept the virtues I give you: humility, patience, faith, hope, and charity to the body and soul. Accept the virtue of loving the Love of Loves.
It does not matter that you do not feel Me so perceptibly close, I am with you all until the consummation of time. I am the loving Father to whoever loves and obeys Me, and severe Judge to whoever refuses Me a heartbeat of love and obedience. His Misery is great, but My Mercy is infinite.
Be tolerant towards your brethren, even when they walk away; not to everyone have I given ten talents… The sun does not cease shining during an eclipse; the celestial bodies are the ones that intervene and obstruct its vision. They are the nebulae of the faith!
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.

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.
