Volume V Lesson #18

MY LITTLE CHILDREN, MY SAINTS
My dear little one, I love My people. I love to be with them. I am the innocent, gentle Son of Man who was betrayed and condemned to death. I in My innocence carried sorrow in My heart for all the world. The wickedness of the world stood before Me and condemned Me. Yet the world thought it was I who stood in sentence before them. My acceptance of their sentence was so that they would not die. I accepted the sentence of death for them, for all people, that the body might die by the sword but the soul could live forever for all those who believed in Love. The foolish man is one who does not believe in God. For those who do not believe God exists will betray their very selves, and their own wickedness will condemn them. But for those who believe in My salvation through My victory in death will joyously celebrate and be with their gentle God. The wicked and righteous shall be slain by their very own sword, but the innocent and meek of heart shall live for all eternity. I shall stand by My people always even though many, one by one, have chosen and are choosing to walk away from Me. Those who desire to remain with Me, I in My infinite wisdom chastise now in order that they will reign with Me and share in My glory. I desire to teach them now and encourage them to be “little” children, little in all ways: actions, thoughts, deeds and speech; little through simplicity and humility of heart.
Do not mistake littleness with lack of power. Littleness is detachment from possessions and is purity of heart. It is simpleness and the wisdom to avoid the influence of wickedness. Littleness is not associated with the lack of wealth, prestige or success. Those who are little joyfully surrender all their attachments to this world and persevere with endurance. It does not bother them not to have any attachments because they are dependent on Me and are attached to Me. Initially the surrender of their possessions may involve disheartening feelings along with temptations for the sweet enticements of the world; but as My little ones accept and renew daily their invitation to allow Me to love them, they master their feelings and find that even their feelings are attachments and obstacles to purity and humility of heart. They, with time and perseverance, become little children, pure and joyfully free, yet powerful and full of My heavenly treasures.
O’ little one, how I invite all people to share in My great glory as My saints. My saints were little in the world, yet powerful because they chose to master their feelings by surrendering any possession or attachments to the world which might have prevented them from listening to My will and responding. The less the world gave to them, the more they received from Me. I invite all My people to be My little children, My saints. I love all and call all to My Heart. I wait to see who will answer and respond to My call from heaven above, for those who respond will be My little children, My saints. Bless you, little one, and continue to pray for all people in the world and for peace and unity.
