"Who will remain faithful in the great and terrible persecution?"
Simple Path 4-B / topic – Fear vs. Trust
Christ’s Crusade of Victim Souls vs. Satan’s new World Order, “Be not Afraid” Part III.
Message to the LC 9/30/19
The Mystery of the Cross is unveiled to the pure and innocent of heart. Its meaning with its power and glory is known and understood by My little ones that approach Me with sincerity and simplicity of heart. Those that allow the Holy Spirit to destroy their plans, expectations, perceptions, and desires to enter into the Mystery of Divine Love.
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 werehumbled 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 most people because they are not willing to allow the Spirit to pierce through their pride, control, stubbornness, plans, and self.
Continue to enter through the passage I have created for you with the innocence of My little ones, and receive the graces of Abba’s love, protection in maintaining perfect peace, and the joy of the saints who live with perfect faith and hope in the knowledge of Divine Love. Once My apostles received the knowledge of My death and resurrection, they lived in the power of the Holy Spirit amidst great tribulations and darkness. Fear no longer had a hold on them. It is the same for you during these times of tribulations and great darkness – My hidden martyrs of loveliving in the knowledge of Divine Love through the Mystery of the Cross will shine like bright stars during the darkness of the great persecution. Persevere living as My hidden martyrs of the end times.
o “Fear no longer had a hold on them” doesn’t mean that we don’t fear, but that our fear no longer controls us. Divine Love moves us through our fear!
- St John Paul II, Simple Path p.409:
“We must be prepared to undergo great trials in the not-too-distant future; trials that will require us to be ready to give up even our lives, and a total gift of self to Christ and for Christ.”
- 2/15/13 BE MY COMPANION OF LOVE Path p.126 – “Who will remain faithful during the great and terrible persecution?”
- 4/10/12 A CRUSADE OF VICTIM SOULS – “My crusade of victim souls will have to suffer greatly and be formed to perfection in love to fight this fierce battle but know that My Cross has triumphed.”
Mathew 14:22-33 Jesus Walks on the Water
Mt 22 "Then he made the disciples get into the boat and go before him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds. 23 And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone, 24, but the boat by this time was many furlongs distant from the land, beaten by the waves; for the wind was against them. 25 And in the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea. 26 But when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were terrified, saying, "It is a ghost!" And they cried out for fear. 27 But immediately he spoke to them, saying, "Take heart, it is I; have no fear." 28 And Peter answered him, "Lord, if it is you, bid me come to you on the water." 29 He said, "Come." So Peter got out of the boat and walked on water and came to Jesus; 30 but when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, "Lord, save me." 31 Jesus immediately reached out his hand and caught him, saying to him, "O man of little faith, why did you doubt?" 32 And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased. 33 And those in the boat worshiped him, saying, 'Truly you are the Son of God.'"
A priest in his homily compared this Gospel to what a race car driver told him:
· Rule #1 – When you’re driving close to the wall, do not look at the wall, or chances are you will hit it. Keep your eyes on where you want to go.
· Rule #2. If there is a crash, don’t look at the crash but stay focused on where you want to go.
When Peter looked at the storm, and away from Jesus, he began to sink. We, too, can focus on Covid19, the many serious world problems--the storms—and lose our focus on Jesus and our goal, which is The Cross, to usher in the era of peace.

My little one, My passion has begun again for My Body the Church. It is a time of intense silence and suffering. My Body, too, will be stripped of all her earthly glory. She, too, will be made naked before the world. Her members living the passion as one with Me, her Head, will obtain my Body's sanctification. Her glory will shine like the radiance of the sun through the purity of its few victims of love, and these few, united as one in My sacrifice of love, will usher in the new dawn for My Church and world. Know that I have found favor with you and my little mustard seed of Love Crucified. Persevere in My Love crucified.
- Luke 1:30 “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.”
The moment our gaze turns away from Jesus, like Peter, we doubt, and the darkness seems overwhelming.
· “what is a disordered desire?” “Anything that takes your gaze from Me.”
· When the race driver was asked, “Then why are there so many accidents?” He answered, “Because they succumb to the TEMPTATION to look at the wall or accident.”
We, too, must battle the temptation to focus on the evil of our times, which would bring us to doubt who we are in Christ and His promise of the power given to God’s hidden victim souls to battle this darkness and conquer it.
· Temptation > fear > doubt
- Friend in room quarantined for Covid… Can't attend Mass nor receive Jesus sacramentally. Superior gave her the Ok to come out after the 12th day, but another doctor called her & said she should remain quarantined for 3 weeks….
The Dolorous Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ by Anne Catherine Emmerich p.108
When our Redeemer, on Mt Olivet, was pleased to experience and overcome that violent repugnance of human nature to suffering and death which constitutes a portion of all sufferings, the tempter was permitted to do to him what he does to all men who desire to sacrifice themselves in a holy cause….
Father, if you are willing, remove this chalice from me; nevertheless, not my will, but yours, be done. Luke 22:42
….a succession of new and terrifying visions were presented before His eyes, and that feeling of doubt and anxiety which a man on the point of making some great sacrifice always experiences, arose in the soul of our Lord, as He asked Himself the tremendous question: ‘And what good will result from this sacrifice?’
Approach all fear with the 5 stones for battle:
1. Humility – knowing our nothingness, weakness, fears, wounds, limitations… and knowing who God is as ALL goodness, love, power and that He as our Spouse, Protector, Defender is with us.
o Ex. Maria sick (Is. 41:13)
2. Purity – a heart purified of self—of all our desires, plans, intentions, to desire solely the Cross
3. Simplicity – in BELIEVING that God conquered darkness and death through the Cross—suffering solely for Love.
4. Trust – abandoned to the will of God, which is the Mystery of the Cross
o Ex. Juliana visiting her dad in Miami
5. Courage – to choose to do what is most difficult -Love
“For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the spirit of sonship.”
o Ex. My fears with Covid kept me away from loving my family – I was enslaved
Why do we fear?
- We believe the lies
“I have to be perfect to be loved.”
Fear of going to purgatory – “God is so demanding, and I will never be holy enough…”
- We have not come to know the truth of who God is.
Example: Consecrated woman – feared that if she gave her yes to be God’s victim soul, God would ask something too difficult from her.
What is the lie? God doesn’t’ love me; I’m not enough; God is very demanding…. The lie is rooted in a falsehood of who Abba is. This lie's origin is the first lie Satan spoke to Eve about God (Genesis 3:1-5). When Eve believes the lie, she doubts the truth of who God is.
The truth is that ABBA loves us and created us to be happy with Him. He has given us rules and boundaries to protect and defend us from Satan’s darkness that only serves to enslave us. God desires our freedom to know and receive His love, to participate in the ecstasy of His Trinitarian love. He invites us to be one with Christ the Victim, not to squash us and make us miserable in suffering, but to set us free to experience pure divine Love and to participate in Love so that we can experience true fulfillment and joy in this life and its fullness in heaven.
Fear of suffering and death
This truth is the power of God to cast out fear.
- Isaiah 41:13-20
“For I, the LORD your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, "Fear not, I will help you."
o God speaks with tenderness;
Fear not, you worm Jacob, you men of Israel! I will help you, says the LORD; your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel.
o It is the worm Jacob; so little, so weak, so despised and trampled on by everybody. Worms, but not vipers, not of the serpent's seed. Every part of God's word is calculated to humble man's pride and to make him appear little in his own eyes. The Lord will help them, for he is their Redeemer.
o The Mystery of the Cross is unveiled to the pure and innocent of heart. Its meaning with its power and glory is known and understood by My little ones that approach Me with sincerity and simplicity of heart. Those that allow the Holy Spirit to destroy their plans, expectations, perceptions, and desires to enter into the Mystery of Divine Love.
Behold, I will make of you a threshing sledge, new, sharp, and having teeth; you shall thresh the mountains and crush them, and you shall make the hills like chaff; 16 You shall winnow them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the tempest shall scatter them. And you shall rejoice in the LORD; in the Holy One of Israel, you shall glory.
o The Lord will make Jacob become a threshing instrument. This has fulfillment in the triumphs of the gospel of Christ, and of all faithful followers of Christ, over the power of darkness.

Satan is working to bring forth his new world order of destruction, but My crusade of victim souls will possess the power of God to crush the head of Satan.
1 John 4:18-21 – “There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love. 19 We love, because He first loved us. 20 If someone says, “I love God,” and yet he hates his brother or sister, he is a liar; for the one who does not love his brother and sister whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen. 21 And this commandment we have from Him, that the one who loves God must also love his brother and sister.”
FEAR > PARALYSIS > SUFFOCATES FAITH, HOPE & LOVE

I bring glad tidings to you. The Father has found favor with you (LC). You have listened to My voice, bringing you out of the desert into new life. Be diligent, My little ones, be diligent! For the God of heaven and earth will shake the earth. A new dawn is coming upon the earth. You, My holy remnant, if you remain faithful during the time of great darkness, will see the Light of the new dawn rising from the east. Persevere!
FAITH, HOPE > PEACE & JOY
Continue to enter through the passage I have created for you with the innocence of My little ones, and receive the graces of Abba’s love, protection in maintaining perfect peace, and the joy of the saints who live with perfect faith and hope in the knowledge of Divine Love.
HW: Confront our fears. How have I lived these months with Covid? What are my fears? What lies are connected to my fears?
