Hello brothers and sisters and Heartdwellers family. May you all be blessed.
This morning in prayer I woke up feeling so weary physically and spiritually. There have been many things I have been praying for and haven’t seen much change. As the Lord continues to tell me to wait and trust him, it hasn’t been easy and I was finding it difficult again to hear from the Lord and really wobbly about my discernment. However, I felt an overwhelming feeling of discouragement this morning as I tried to push through in worship.
Then Mother Elizabeth got a phone call from Mother Clare needing prayer as she was feeling discouraged and a walk blocking her from hearing from the Lord. As I overheard their conversations and received the prayer alert. I thought to myself, wow I am feeling the same thing too, this must be an assignment. I forget that I have intercessors as well whom I can call on for prayer when I am going through a difficult time, I am new to all of this. So Immediately reached out to my intercessors and enlisted their help to pray for me and Mother Clare for breakthrough.
After prayer, I knew the Lord wanted to speak to me, so I stepped out in faith despite how I was feeling with anxiety, if I would discern his voice correctly and just began to write.
I came before him saying, good morning Jesus, what’s on your heart?
“Beloved thank you you for pressing through and being here with me.I always have so much to tell you if you would, but only come”
I then saw Jesus in what seemed like a garden with white lines on, under a huge cherry blossom tree. He walked up to me and held me so tightly in such a warm embrace. I didn’t want to let go because I had been having feelings of insecurity rise up again between him and I and everything else, it felt so good to be with him.
I said, Thank you Lord for your sweet embrace. Oh, how much I need this right now
“I need it to beloved, I do” ( as He kissed on the forehead). Then we walked in the garden side by side as he continued speaking
It may seem like I am asking much from you because I am my little one. I need everything you can offer and sacrifice for this Holy Week. Do you know why it’s so important?”
“Although, unbeknownst to my disciples, at the time leading up to my death I was preparing them, strengthening them to stand alone in me. I knew they would all be scattered and in those three days leading up to my resurrection tormented mercilessly by the devils with doubt, discouragement, confusion and lies. So that they would all abandon their post, abandon their call and their apostolate in Me, for my Church. However, in that trial the Father used it to strengthen their resolve and even after Mary Magdalenes’ announcement of my resurrection many still doubted until I revealed myself to them.
In the tomb, my body was laid to rest, but I was very much at work. For on those days I entered the depths of hell to preach to the souls the good news and retrieve the keys of death from Satan himself.
1 Peter 3:19-20
After being made alive, he went and made proclamation to the imprisoned spirits— to those who were disobedient long ago when God waited patiently in the days of Noah while the ark was being built. In it only a few people, eight in all, were saved through water,
All those in purgatory or limbo who had waited for the messiah were released to be in paradise with me, just as the thief on the cross. It was a day that the captives where set free, those who were imprisoned, those where going to be imprisoned and those to come. I redeemed all of mankind with the final blow of love to my side. The demons where the only ones caged and confined to different arid places of the world as My Angels bound them, no longer to torment the souls of earth so freely because all authority had been taken from them and given to Me which I have given you and all my beloved disciples.”
Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
“My beloved brides, this Holy Week I desire for you to really enter into my passion. Offer me everything not one sacrifice or suffering I permit will be wasted. So many graces will be released on souls, on your loved ones and, on you. A shower of graces I pour out to my faithful ones and on the last three days stay with Me in the tomb. Meet Me there, for that is when I was left alone. Come be with My Mother and clean my wounds, prepare Me for burial and weep at your beloved savior who took every blow, every lash, every punch, every spittle, and every curse word just for you. Cloth me with your tears of repentance and of thanksgiving. Wrapping my naked and cold body with your praise and prayers, for so many who don’t acknowledge Me, love Me or thank Me everyday. Then on Easter I want you to arise with expectation, that your God has risen, is alive and has conquered death to bring restoration to every dead thing in your life. To bring hope again where there has been barrenness, and to resurrect stolen vision, stolen dreams and stolen gifts, and will appear to you to wash away all doubt and discouragement that has assailed you. My beautiful brides accompany me in this Holy Week and the tombs in your life will be opened.”
That was the end of Jesus message
After receiving this message, I went to the Bible promise to discern this was from the Lord and one of the readings I got were Lying which almost always means a lying spirit. I was struck with fear and anxiety all over again . So I asked Mother Elizabeth to help me discern the message and she got lying twice. I thought oh no Lord, what have I done to open the door to a lying spirit which discouraged me all over again. Then Mother Elizabeth thought, to go deeper in discernment thinking that the Lord was saying I was being pelted with lies. So she went to the Lord again for another reading on discernment and got “Joy”. Wheew, so you see I am still learning in discernment so grateful for her being prompted by Holy Spirit like because I could’ve easily discarded this message and fallen into deeper discouragement.
I then went to pull rhemas and the Lord was so wonderful, all the cards I got were so encouraging and spoke about my situation and even some things Jesus said in the message. I even shared it with Mother Clare so she could be encouraged. The first rhema said “Your being pelted with lies and discouragement with a picture of a young lady holding her shield of faith to stop the many fiery darts from hitting her then it ended with, Put on the armor and stand!”. I realized I didn’t put on my helmet first thing when I got out of bed but a little later I have learned my lesson not to do that again. Second rhema card said, “Don’t lose heart if it is your lot to work a lot and gather little. If you considered what one soul alone cost Jesus, you would never complain” St. Padre Pio. I thought ouch, but so true so I asked Papa Pio to please help me not to complain again. The last rhema card said, “I will make My goodness pass before you” definitely confirming the message. Thank you Lord, He truly knows how to pull us up and out of the pit.
So for those who maybe new to observing Holy Week it begins this Sunday March 28th and ends on April 3rd Easter Sunday.It is a week to prepare your heart to be the tomb where Jesus can find his rest, be nurtured, be praised and be resurrected in you! This week we recall the events leading up to Jesus’ death on the cross and his Resurrection. It includes five days of very special significance and I want to provide some ideas for you to really enter into the Lords passion this week.
The first is Palm Sunday, March 28th, which commemorates Jesus’ humble entry (on a donkey) into Jerusalem to observe Passover. He was greeted by crowds of people who spread their cloaks and laid palm leaves in his path and proclaimed him the Son of David
John 12: 12-16
12 The next day the great crowd that had come for the festival heard that Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem. 13 They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting,
“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”
“Blessed is the king of Israel!”
14 Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it, as it is written:
“Do not be afraid, Daughter Zion;
see, your king is coming,
seated on a donkey’s colt.”[
16 At first his disciples did not understand all this. Only after Jesus was glorified did they realize that these things had been written about him and that these things had been done to him
You can celebrate Palm Sunday by making it a family affair, especially if you have children. You can create palm branches from construction paper, then share the story of Jesus triumphant entry in to Jersusalmen and read Psalms that sing of his praise. We will be doing our own procession here in the community and end with praise and thanksgiving.
Maundy Thursday marks Jesus’ institution at the Last Supper of the Eucharist.
John 13: 1-5
It was just before the Passover Festival. Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.
2 The evening meal was in progress, and the devil had already prompted Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, to betray Jesus. 3 Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; 4 so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. 5 After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.
This is a great opportunity for you and your family to do communion or go to a mass if that is available and then wash each others feet. In humble rememberance that the first is always last and we are to imitate our beloved Jesus by serving all.
Good Friday commemorates Jesus’ suffering and death on the cross; it is traditionally a day of sorrow, penance, and fasting. Here we fast until 5pm and then we do the stations of the cross to meditate on Jesus suffering and meeting Blessed Mother there. I would encourage you all to go much deeper and use your sanctified imagination in prayer this day and enter into the tomb. The Holy Spirit has taken me there before and I will never forget it. Be there right when they are preparing Jesus for burial and help Blessed Mother clean his wounds, and wrap him with the shroud. Here in the community we will watch the Passion of the Christ and I encourage every believer to do that on Good Friday. There is nothing quite like entering into the Lords passion because there you meet love face to face and you will never be the same.
Holy Saturday also called Easter Vigil, is the traditional end of Lent. This is a solemn day of remembrance, where we cover Jesus in the Eucharist in all the tabernacles in the community in remembrance that he is in the tomb and how it would feel at the loss of his presence. It is a sober day to put yourself in the disciples shoes, to feel their grief of the loss of their master, friend and savior. You can then contemplate Blessed Mothers sentiments as I believe she was immersed in prayer and thanksgiving with great faith and anticipation that her son would rise the next morning. In prayer enter into the tomb again and just sit and stay there at his side in the tomb, in silence remembering the day that love laid itself down for you, that you might have life instead.
Easter Sunday s the celebration of Jesus’ Resurrection, on the third day after his crucifixion. Don’t just dress up in pretty outfits and hats and go to church to hear an easter message. Go much deeper my beloved dear ones, have a simple communion service now with the risen King and you praise the Lord in thanksgiving for giving us His Son Jesus. Offer your entire day for lost souls and those in purgatory because many graces of conversion are released that day. Pray for the many souls who still don’t know and still don’t believe that Jesus Christ is Lord.
God bless you all until the next message
