Follow My Divine Love
The divine resonance that is produced in each one of you who hears My Word is all Mine and no one, not even you, could add even the smallest vibration to this sentiment. I am the one who acts; let your God act in the temple that I have made for Myself, creating you like Me and regenerating you to the new life in order to then communicate to you My own life.
Do you not see that I have cause to incite you and conveniently instruct you on how to follow My norms of love? Follow them and you will get to that most beautiful point, the one to which I have predestined you.
I tell you many things and all are appropriate to your beloved souls; perhaps I tell you so many that you have difficulty in the choice. But, since all are good, take them as they come and meditate. The dominant topic is love. And so it is: love dominates Me and I want it to dominate you too. Listen to these exhortations and everything will be understood, nothing will remain forgotten. For, if you dedicate yourselves to love, as a result you will have everything with you and nothing will escape you, because each time you will return to My lesson about the need to do everything with humility. The lesson on the duty to help your loved ones will come back; in love you will find the essential reasons for all acts of virtue, of the sorrow of having offended Me by sin. What is more, I tell you that in loving your spirit will be filled with all the virtues without you noticing it.
Therefore, I ask you for love. And who gives you love if you yourselves do not even have a crumb on your behalf? You know, My little ones, ask Me for it; desire to love and I will be happy to make you great in love.
How happy is the heart of the lover! And, why? Because it sees the loved one happy and also because it is true that everything the loved one asks for, will be granted. For that reason the lover is tranquil. He knows that I will give all help and for the same reason takes care only to stay in My arms, everything else being in order.
The life I give you has this precise object, to love Me. What is the use of everything else? It is useful only if it serves to love Me, since if your life points to a different end than Me, it deceives itself and tries to deceive. Little by little you all will take into consideration these words that I state because of your affection, because I am very interested that they do not escape you and that you capture them all and transform them into acts of love.
Look, My beloved ones: I have not said good works because it would have been the same, I have said works of love, so that you will erase from your mind the concept of usefulness, the calculation of the supernatural. In other words, so that you may move away as far as possible from concupiscent love, which is holy in the act of good, nevertheless, it is not divine love but love of one’s own well-being.
Do you want merits? Do you want to get good fruit from your works?
Do it without thinking about yourselves but of Me who proposes them. The merits will be enormous, greater than the ones pursued for love of chaste concupiscence. The prize? Very big; it will be bigger than the one procured with the limited vision of one’s own good, or of another creature.
Therefore, think and follow My Divine Love and you will have much more than you expect.

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.
