Few Will Remain Faithful
God in His infinite goodness will conquer the beast with the few little pure victims of love Message 1/4/2022
My little one, the time approaches for the great persecution of My followers. I, as I did with My apostles, disciples, Mother, and friends, am preparing you for this difficult hour. Few will remain faithful, My little one. Judas betrayed Me because his passions had not been purified. His zeal for his desires, power, and riches darkened his soul so that Satan could manipulate him
This is what will happen again at the final hour. I will be betrayed by those closest to Me, My consecrated souls because the darkness within their hearts has not been purified, and Satan will deceive them until it's too late. My small community of Love Crucified will also suffer this devastation because not all have listened and responded to My voice, preparing them for these difficult times.
Remain in the Immaculate Heart of Mary in silence and prayer, pondering the words I have spoken to you, and you (plural) will have the purity of heart to persevere till the end.
Encourage My little mustard seed to persevere living the Simple Path I continue guiding you (plural) in.
1– What are the two forces in the decisive battle being waged?
Mark Mallett expresses it simply and clearly in his blog of 1/5/22:
Powerful economic and political powers
intent upon reducing and controlling the population.
Those defending life, dignity, and freedom.
We cannot serve two masters. We each must choose which side of this battle we are on. The Lord has been very clear in His messages to us that it will be only His followers who will be persecuted. He continuously lets us know that few will remain faithful. Why? Because His followers are those who are willing to deny themselves, meaning those willing to deny their desires, including good desires to maintain employment, comforts of life, attachments to many things, etc., to pick up their Cross and follow Him to be crucified.
The Lord is letting us know in advance that He will be betrayed again by those closest to Him because of the darkness that remains in their hearts. He also is clear that those who persevere till the end will be those who remain in the Immaculate Heart of Mary in silence and prayer and possess a pure heart.
In 2020 the LC Encounter was on the 1st nail of crucifixion, the purification of our desires. It was the beginning of the pandemic. How providential that God in His infinite goodness was bringing us to the death of our desires, expectations, and attachments. A very difficult purification which many of us have been living for the past two years. Without this death to self, we cannot persevere as God’s victim souls, one with the Crucified.
2– 1st Nail of our Interior Crucifixion, Purification of our Desires
LC Encounter 2020, 2nd Reflection
The Purification of Your Desires —Diary of a MOC. p.187
The purification of your desires is the first stage of purification in My Sacred Heart. You begin to move only according to My desires and not yours. You no longer do what you want to do, nor go where you want to go, but now, you go only where I take you. You choose to live each day according to what is most difficult, not what is easiest. This will require a greater discipline of your will, greater silence, and stillness of soul in Me. 1/16/14
As I read these words again this week, words that were given by the Lord in 2014, they took on a new perspective after two years of the pandemic and the “Great Reset” of the one world order with its anti-Gospel agenda against life, dignity, and freedom. Many people can no longer do what they want to do nor go where they want to go unless they have received the mRNA vaccine. But the Lord was preparing us as His victim souls by letting us know, as He did with Peter, that we will go only where He takes us. Where is He taking us? To the Cross to be persecuted with Him, to participate in Divine Love as one with His sacrifice of love to win this battle and usher in the Reign of the Immaculate Heart of Mary with the Reign of the Holy Spirit and the Eucharistic Reign of Jesus.
My apostles at first could not receive the mystery of God’s plan of salvation, which opens the passage to enter into God through His Son, because their desires and expectations kept their minds and hearts concealed to the knowledge of God’s love, but when their expectations and desires were shattered, and their hearts were humbled in grief, the Holy Spirit could begin to reveal to them the Mystery of Divine Love found and encountered in the Cross and through the Cross. To this day, the Mystery of the Cross continues to be veiled to the majority of people because they are not willing to allow the Spirit to pierce through their pride, control, stubbornness, plans, and self…
The apostles are “overwhelmed with grief” (Mt17:23) because Jesus, for the 2nd time, has told them that He is going to be killed and that He will be raised on the 3rd day (17:22). They are overwhelmed with grief because they have truly come to know Jesus as the Messiah, the Son of God, and they have come to love Him, but their grief is not yet fully purified. The intentions of their hearts are not yet pure; therefore, their love is not yet filial love—pure love.
Their grief is “overwhelming” because a very painful process of purification is actually taking place in their hearts—“the circumcision of the foreskin of their hearts” (Deuteronomy 10:16). The disciples have their desires and expectations of Jesus. They have their own desires of what life ministering with Jesus should be.
These are good human desires, plans, and expectations, but the ways of God are not the ways of men— “Get behind me Satan…for you are setting your mind not on divine things but on human things.” (Mt 16:23) Their hearts need to undergo the painful process of the circumcision of their desires. The deep desires of their hearts are being “cut out,” crucified, put to death, and this personal death within the depth of their hearts is overwhelming them with grief. Yet, this painful death of their deepest desires and longings is the only means to PURE LOVE. This is the First Nail of crucifixion with Jesus.
The surgical removal of a boy’s foreskin is painful. Our desires are the foreskin attached to our hearts. The Divine Physician comes to cut away this foreskin because it keeps our hearts attached to our “I’ and not to God. When the skin is removed, the boy feels greater sensitivity. This, too, is what happens to our hearts—When the foreskin of our desires is removed, our hearts become more sensitive to God; they have a greater capacity to know Him and to understand His ways. Our hearts then become more attached to God, able to live in greater TRUST and ABANDONMENT to His Will.
We too have many good desires, but they are attached to our wills and ego:
Desires to have those we love freed from their oppressions, healed of their wounds and disorders, and set free to love us. We want our desires fulfilled according to our ways– which is not the cross and suffering, so we control, insist, push, pull and force to try to change the ones we love. (“Love does not insist on its own way” (1Cor.13:5)
If our desires are still attached to our way of life, we will begin to choose and discard the words of God spoken to us to prepare us as His victim warriors for this battle. We will look for other voices to justify our desires to save ourselves, and we will discard the words that challenge us to suffer as one in Christ’s sacrifice of love. Just as many Catholics choose what they want to follow and discard the rest, mainly the Church’s teachings on sexuality, birth control, abortion, and all the difficult teachings that require sacrifice and dying to our passions and desires of the flesh. We, too, in LC, can begin to pick and choose only what fits into our desires.
