Hello, Brothers and Sisters and Heartdwellers family.
May we all be given the grace to love Jesus through Adoration in the Blessed Sacrament, and receive all that He wants to give us.
I woke up this morning and I was rushing to get out of the door into prayer. I found myself feeling impatience and anxious. I live in the community commons now where everything is so busy and loud with people coming and going. So I always find myself trying to get away before I get snagged by someone. I know, it’s not right. Then I met a brother as I was about to leave, and questioned him [about] fixing up his hermitage for his family.
To be honest, I had already judged and criticized in my heart this act and thought a better Franciscan way would be to accept the hermitage for how it was, to show our faithfulness to Lady Poverty. Either way, I was wrong to have that in my heart, and as we had the conversation, I could feel pride rise up in me. I left afterward to prayer, feeling terrible for my attitude. So I was asking the Lord to forgive me the whole morning and called the brother asking him to forgive me for my attitude.
Then I began to meditate on the Rhemas He had given me this morning, I picked up from my deck before stepping out the door. And I knew it all had to do with the trip and what I was suffering, and would suffer in preparation.
The rhemas read,
“I have prepared the way before you, and I will remove the obstacles that will arise as easily as a child removes a leaf from the ground, before him, while he plays. Adore Me, and keep Me company, for this is what I ask of you and I will do the rest.”
I thought, Wow, Lord! Thank you!
The second said,
“Give me Your Love, that it may give me strength to suffer all for the love of Thee.”
The [third] said,
“Tell Him simply: My Jesus why have you put me to such a hard test? You know how I suffer from your absence.”
And lastly the prayer of Judith:
It is a prayer for one facing obstacles, persecutions & adversities….
“Oh my God, hear me. It is You who was the author of past events and of what preceded and followed them. The present and the future, You planned! Whatever You devise, comes into being. The things You decide upon, come forward and say, “Here we are!” All Your ways are in readiness, and Your judgments are made with foreknowledge. Here is a vast force, filled with pride and boasting of their power, trusting in themselves. They do not know that, You, the Lord, crush warfare! LORD is Your name. Shutter their strength in Your might and crush their force in Your wrath; for they have resolved to profane Your work, to defile the Church where Your glorious Name resides to overthrow Your altar. See their pride and send forth Your wrath upon their heads. Strengthen me, O God! Crush their pride with Your hands. Your strength is not in numbers, nor does Your power depend upon men, but YOU are God of the lowly, the Helper of the oppressed, the Supporter of the weak.”
Wow! And all my songs in worship were about the power of prayer! And just then I received a text from one of our priests, in another part of the world, who said she got a reading from a St. Faustina book, to “tell the Mother superior to do Adoration in the community to implore mercy for the whole world.”
I thought, “Hmm, Lord, this is really important to you! And maybe you don’t want just the community doing it, but all the priests to do it as well.
So after receiving the Lord, I knew he wanted to speak to me.
So I began:
Good morning, Lord. I’m sorry for my failures this morning. Thank you so much for your grace and patience with me. Jesus, what is on your heart?
“My beloved you are forgiven, but it’s important for you to put on your armor right before you get out of bed. Ask your guardian angel to remind you, and always know where there is a lack of patience in anything, there are all the other sister-sins there and demons ready to set you up for a trap. I have told you with these souls; your job is not to correct unless I bring it up for you to do so. Nor is it your job to criticize or judge. But rather to love, and you teach by example, Beloved. I am leading each one of them and as you pray, I will bring conviction to their hearts with things that are disordered. So trust Me, and leave it all in My hands, beloved little one.
I want your heart to be in a place of gratitude these next couple of days. Gratitude and strong praise, that will give you such fortitude to withstand any winds that may come, and be very excited and expectant to what I am going to do! I gave you My sentiments this morning concerning Adoration. That is the secret, Beloved, to your peace, to your love for Me, and to the work that I have prepared for you and all My beloved brides.
You cannot fathom the power of My real presence in the Blessed Sacrament and the protection that it carries when a soul devotes themselves to be with Me, stay with Me and adore Me! This is one thing missing in the community that I want to be established. So please, let that be a priority today, Beloved. I also want that established with all our priests, an Adoration schedule.
There are many around the world, so you can work out a time that I will be continuously adored 24/7. This is all in preparation for the work I have destined for you all, and to prepare the way for the work you will be doing in Sierra Leone and the other nations as well.
Beloved ones, in Adoration your enemies are scattered! Their plans, their whims, their assignments against you and those you love, are utterly destroyed. Deliverance takes place not only in yourself, but in others, those whom you are praying for. What is troubling you? What is ailing you, what hasn’t bowed down to prayer? Come and sit before Me in Adoration My beloved brides, and I will give you the necessary grace to persevere in your trials, and at My appointed time to cause these giants to fall and mountains to be cast into the sea.”
A thought came to my mind: If you have troubled marriages – adore Jesus! Spend time with Him in Adoration and He will bring such healing, reconciliation, and restoration! Putting the demons to flight!
“You all are called to be My adoring brides, and your life will be a testimony of My very real presence, because you cannot leave the glory of My divine face in the Blessed Sacrament and not be changed. Impossible! Every time you adore Me, you are transforming into the One you spend the most time with. You will begin to look like Me, act like Me, and think like Me.
All the gifts and work I have put in your hands to do will come effortlessly when you make time in your day to adore Me. If you are called to preach or teach, there is no need to become learned, full of knowledge and scripture, but rather if you adore Me, you will obtain the grace of infusion! You will have My mind and the presence of My Holy Spirit will be so one with you that when you speak and teach, it will be as though they hear God speaking, teaching, and preaching. So great will be your anointing!
If you must create, do art, music or serve – after Adoration would be the best time! For you will be in Me, and I in you. We will move seamlessly and beautifully, creating together from one thing to another.
If I have called out to missions, or out into the byways, the highways to touch the lives of the poor, helpless little one or to those with hardened hearts – you need not fear your enemies or the opposition in that land. Rather, adore Me in the Sacrament of My love! Obstacles will be obliterated, doors will swing wide open, and favor and the heart of the people will be given to you, because you have chosen the better portion to adore Me instead.
That is the secret to the success of true ministry that impacts eternity: it’s Adoration. Many will come to you and ask, ‘what did you do? What did you pray for? Who did you know?’ And your answer My brides will be, ‘I know only one in whom My help comes from, and I adored Him day and night, night and day in the Blessed Sacrament. All I did was sit still and give my time to Him and He gave Me the inspiration, He gave me the favor, He divinely connected me and He made a way.’ So that souls all cross My Body will come to know My presence in the Eucharist.
You have been praying for a Eucharistic revival, My beloved little one, and it starts with you. This is the start of it! If you would obey Me, be diligent, faithful in this daily, and teach others the same, I will pour out My blessing upon you all in such a great measure that you will not be able to contain it.
My beloved brides, give Me just an hour of your time! Start there, and I will give all you have ever asked for, for the kingdom of this earth is Mine and all that is in it. And what is Mine, is yours.
So come! Stay with Me! Love on Me and be with Me. Come receive all that I have for you and have prepared for you before the foundation of the earth.”
That was the end of Jesus’ message.
And I can testify to this!
Just in a week’s time when the Lord gave me the Rhema concerning being really serious about Adoration and leaving my worries there, that he would remove the obstacles – He did! Now Derrick is excited about me coming to the trip and the intense warfare around us and tension has diminished greatly. I am believing the Lord to really prepare the way for us and the mission he has there for us. I also have been praying that he would open his eyes with visions and dreams concerning God’s will, and he had a dream about Heartdwellers doing an event in one of the nations of Africa. He was there with me, and we were giving free bikes away. He hasn’t dreamed in forever, but is very prophetic.
I just whispered in my heart as he told me these things, “Thank you, Jesus! Thank you for what you’re doing and [for] answering my prayers as I just sit before you and trust you to take care of things!” And He is doing it! He will do it for you also.
You can do Adoration online. There are so many YouTube channels that are chapels that provide 24-hour Adoration, and Jesus has made it clear He is just as present there, as He would be if you had the Blessed Sacrament in front of you.
For those who are new to the channel and don’t know what the Blessed Sacrament is, we have a playlist where Jesus teaches on that, and adoration as well. So join us, family! Pick an hour out of your day to give Jesus your time in Adoration and your whole life will change!
God bless you, family! Until the next message.
