Mount Your Horses Through the Storm

Note: These are supplemental notes. To get a fuller and richer understanding of this teaching, we recommend you listen to the audio.
This is a follow up to Canaanite woman.
The Lord told us to mount our horses to battle. How have we fared under trials?
The Lord's message, 8/6/17
… this is a time of an outpouring of grace for My little mustard seed. You are each being given the grace to be transformed into My living hosts to bless, release from bondage and set free countless souls. See yourselves as My warriors riding out into the horizon. This holy fleet is the Light of God’s love that has the power to cast into hell the spirits of darkness that are now covering the earth. My triumph will be a great triumph accomplished through the most hidden force of God – the hidden martyrdom of My Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of My Mother.
*Respond by suffering all with Me in My sacrifice of love.
*Respond with courage and zeal believing that God has chosen you to participate in the triumph of My crucified love to save the world.
*Believe, that as My warriors – the hidden anawims of God – you have mounted your horses and have begun to fight the great battle for the salvation of the world.
*Remain steadfast in living daily what I have taught you.
*Do not be afraid, for the triumph of My Sacred Heart, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, is close at hand.
*Usher in the triumph of our Two Hearts.
Meditation of the message
1. this is a time of an outpouring of grace for My little mustard seed. You are each being given the grace to be transformed into My living hosts to bless, release from bondage and set free countless souls.
Did I respond to grace?
• What grace did I receive this month to help my transformation into a "living host”? The grace is usually a profound piercing, a storm, that was unexpected.
• Was I able to see this piercing as God’s grace or, like the Israelites, did I enter fear, doubt, discouragement, anxiety, grumbling…?
Did I read and forget or did it become flesh of my flesh?
• Many times, we read the words the Lord gives us but the message remains disconnected from our lives. We read and then FORGET. We receive a teaching and then forget. The messages & teachings, like the Path, need to become flesh of our flesh, one with us. Until this happens in every MOC and MC, we are not transformed into the LIVING PATH, a LIVING HOST.
The graces are not what we expected
• When I first received this message I never imagined that the grace of transformation I was receiving from the Lord would come in the form of a category 5 hurricane.
• “We are not able to believe that God will do the impossible with the impossibles. Fear becomes an obstacle to faith. The spirits of fear, doubt and discouragement quickly spread among the entire community. It’s amazing how quickly fear, confusion, discouragement and despair can spread throughout a group of people.”
2 Warriors -the hidden force- has power to defeat the darkness
See yourselves as My warriors riding out into the horizon. This holy fleet is the Light of God’s love that has the power to cast into hell the spirits of darkness that are now covering the earth. My triumph will be a great triumph accomplished through the most hidden force of God – the hidden martyrdom of My Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of My Mother.
God has chosen you to participate in the triumph of My crucified love to save the world.
We mount our horses when we embrace the storm as a grace.
• The “white horse” is an allegory for a spiritual reality. The grace, the storm, is what mounts us on our horse. Was I able to mount my horse with the particular grace I received?
*As I now reflect I realize that, for me, the hurricane itself was not the grace to mount my horse, the grace was rather the trial by fire of my faith: the pain I was living as I witnessed the lack of faith & hope in some of my family members. How many souls I love do not have a LIVING FAITH established upon a personal relationship with Christ, therefore, when the storm came some were falling apart through anger, bitterness, frustration, and even sarcasm towards faith, hope and love. Living in close quarters for a week with so many people, I was confronted with many faults, disorders….
3. Respond by suffering all with Me in My sacrifice of love.
• We ride our horse as we RESPOND, as the Lord told us, suffering as one with His sacrifice of love, BELIEVING that we have been chosen by God to fight this holy war for the salvation of the world.
*Were these words from our Lord, contained in this last message, present in our hearts while we lived our storms, or did we FORGET?
• I needed to ride my white horse by receiving the piercings of the lack of faith and indifference from those that I love so much and choosing to suffer with Jesus in silence and love and with perfect faith that this hidden suffering in Christ is setting many free from bondage.
4. Respond with courage and zeal believing that God has chosen you to participate in the triumph of My crucified love to save the world. Believe, that as My warriors – the hidden anawims of God – you have mounted your horses and have begun to fight the great battle for the salvation of the world.
• The Lord has been specific with us concerning demons we each must fight against as His hidden victims of love: demons of lust, pornography, shame, pride, arrogance and fear.
• Have I been able to recognize the demons I am called to fight against through the piercings I have received?
• I realized that I was battling the demons of pride, arrogance, worldliness & indifference. I had to REPENT from frustration, anger, discouragement and the desire to separate, so that I could REMAIN on my horse in battle. Satan wants to throw each of us off our horses. I had to bring to the foot of the cross everything in my heart that was not pure and from God and suffer the PURE PAIN.
• For us to REMAIN on our horses in battle SILENCE is of the essence!!!!!! Without silence we cannot ENTER THE PURE PAIN in Christ which holds the SWORD OF THE SPIRIT. Without silence we lose our weapon, our sword!!!! Without silence we fall, like the Israelites, into grumbling. Through DISTRACTIONS, Satan will attempt to disarm us of our power. This holy fleet is the Light of God’s love that has the power to cast into hell the spirits of darkness that are now covering the earth.
Message 102- Through the Arms of Silence Embrace My Crucified Body,
Silence allows you to embrace fully the sorrow of your heart. Silence allows you to enter fully the sorrow I am permitting in your heart. As you embrace this pain and suffering, you are embracing Me. You are embracing My pain and suffering and thus entering My Heart, for My Heart is all pain and love.
Message 104 – Silence is your soul in communion with God. It is in silence that you come to hear the voice of God. It is in silence that you come to see the face of God. It is in silence that you come to feel the touch of God. Silence is the embrace of love between a soul and God.
5. We learned about 5 virtues of the Canaanite woman that are needed for STEADFAST FAITH:
(1) vulnerability (2) Perseverance (3) Homage (4) faith tried by fire (5) Faith that has the power to cast out demons
• How did I live these virtues during the storm of my life?
• What self-knowledge have I received?
1) Vulnerability -this we have covered in other talks. In Christ we render our heart open to be pierced
2) Perseverance -Persevere in prayer; persevere in wearing the crown of many thorns; persevere in love by suffering all as ONE with the pierced Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart.
3) Homage – The cananite women honored Jesus: “Lord help me.”
• During the storm seeing my weakness did I come to the Lord in homage saying, “Lord help me. This is impossible for me but for you nothing is impossible.”
• Was my every breath gratitude to God for the grace of this storm? "The prayer of gratitude and thanksgiving should be your every breath". (Path #97. p278)
• "This perfects a soul quickly in abandonment and trust until you come to experience all, the good and what you perceive as bad, as a gift of My love for you". The gift of knowing with your mind, heart and soul that the love of God only desires to make of you the new creation you were created to be from the beginning of time, a creation in the image and likeness of God as holy sons and daughters of the Most High. (Path #115. p310)
4) Faith tried by fire
• How was my faith tried in the furnace of the Sacred Heart during this trial?
• What seemingly harsh words from others set me off and brought me into anger, doubt and discouragement?
6. To have the humility and faith of the Canaanite woman is rare. We too must be transparent before God to recognize, through self-knowledge, how our hardened hearts continue to be like the Israelite people. We must understand that we are in a process, from hearts like the Israelites to hearts of great faith and trust like the Canaanite woman. God is promising us transformation into living hosts and we must be receptive and docile to this process.
7. The grace of Pope Francis’s visit to Colombia.
*The Pope named the wounds of Colombia. We have learned in our Path the importance of NAMING THE WOUND. These wounds are in the hearts of all the Colombian people. The MOC and MC in Colombia have a special mission. Because they have been granted by God the healing of these wounds through the teachings of our Path, they MUST now live their hidden martyrdom as one with Jesus and Mary’s watering the seeds that were planted in a multitude of hearts with the Pope’s visit. They must be the hidden victim souls so that these seeds do not die amidst the rocks and thorns and bear no fruit.
Our community cannot forget that we were given two prophesies for Colombia:
PROPHECY FOR COLOMBIA #1 6/24/14
Colombia has been a chosen land of God destined to bring the Light of God to the world.
Colombia has been showered with heavenly graces, and therefore, Satan has also come to spread his darkness and lies.
My Colombian people need to repent with tears of supplication and the sacrifice of a contrite heart.
My Love Crucified has now entered this country through the living sacrifice of My victim souls of love and reparation.
I desire to raise up My army of victim souls in Colombia to pierce de darkness of Satan. Many of my Colombian people have fallen asleep, and like a thief in the night, Satan has entered and planted his seeds of discord, sin and evil. I am now entrusting you the mission to raise up My army of victim souls, for the future of this country, selected by God to be the salt of the world, is in danger.
Do not be afraid to proclaim My Love Crucified as the way to conquer Colombia back to God.
PROPHECY FOR COLOMBIA #2 6/25/14
Rf. Jeremia 16:5
My people have forsaken Me with the idols of adultery, the occult, lust and impurities of all kinds… God in His infinite mercy is granting the people of Colombia a certain amount of time to repent…
They need to turn their eyes toward My love crucified. The Holy Spirit, through the power of My love crucified, will grant them the gift of self-knowledge, to see with new eyes the darkness within them. Then, as they repent, I will come and raise them out of the pit of hell… It is the grace of my victim souls that God will use to bring many to this repentance of heart, mind and soul. Love crucified is now to enter Colombia with the force of the Holy Spirit to help raise up my victims of love, for the great battle has begun…
