My dear little children, praised be Jesus!
There are many people who associate God with punishment.
They are afraid that God will afflict them with sorrow.
The truth is that the closer you are drawn to the Lord, the more you will embrace His Love and see how loving He is and how much He loves you.
Jesus can fill you with His Peace, and you can be joyful, free little children.
It is wise to have a holy fear of God, but unwise to avoid Him because you are afraid of Him or what He might ask of you.
Entrust all of yourselves to Jesus.
Do not be afraid.
You will rejoice and come to know the Truth of His Love.
Only those of you, little children, who embrace the Truth of His Love without conditions will be inebriated by His Love and radiate His Joy and Love and Mercy.
You cannot fully understand what His Mercy entails until you fully embrace His Love.
I love you, little children and I take your petitions to Jesus this night.
It is not sacrifice Jesus desires, but a humble contrite heart, a heart which loves and then can be merciful.
Mortify your selfishness, and embrace love.
Love others first, and you will meet the merciful Savior.
Peace to you.
I bless you in the Name of Jesus, your gentle, loving and merciful Savior.
Thank you for responding to my call.
