The Divine Will

The coming of the Kingdom

Thy Kingdom come. Thy Will be done on earth as it is in heaven (Mt 6:10).

Many, especially in a not insubstantial part of the Catholic Church in America (particularly among the laity), are expecting and desiring a visible coming of the Kingdom of God on earth. But this is false and akin to the notion that Judas Iscariot originally had in desiring Christ to establish His kingdom on earth by overthrowing the Romans from their positions of power over Israel. It is the same mistake, the same fallacy; the same error.

It does not come from God.

The coming of the Kingdom in this intermediate time of humankind’s salvation history is internal, not external. There will be no flashing chariots of fire and visible multitudes of angels riding the clouds, with the King of Kings descending openly from the skies to, at last, separate the sheep from the goats. The coming at this point in time will be quiet, without fanfare.

It will be the descent of the Kingdom of the Divine Will upon humanity; a gift of grace originally possessed in full by Saint Adam and that will be accepted by some, but rejected by others. And those who insist on deliberately rejecting this gratuitous gift of mercy from God will suffer – more so than those who accept it. None, however, will have any doubt as to what is happening, even though some will still attempt to ‘explain’ it away.

It will be the commencement of the eighth stage of the process of deification as outlined by Saint Peter of Damascus and the first two stages (of this eighth stage) as elaborated by Saint Gregory of Palamas. It will be the period that Saint Louis de Montfort referred to when he used the metaphor about the cedars of Lebanon towering above the little shrubs with regard to emerging saints of the period. Every single person on earth will see God within themselves, will know He is God, and will be free to either accept or reject Him.

Everyone will be given this chance, this choice. Believers and unbelievers alike.

Above all, however, the coming of the Kingdom will mark the process whereby Jews and Christians will at last be united. All the Churches will similarly re-unite and become One Church, as it was at the beginning of its history, under One God and Father; One Savior, the Redeemer, Jesus Christ; through the Holy Spirit. And the whole world shall witness the stupefying phenomenon, never before manifested, of

Let all of them be one as We are One (Jn 17:21).

The reign of the Divine Paternal Heart will come openly on earth.

What the Catholic Church is going through right now, both inside and outside of Herself, is just a necessary prelude to the above. No more, no less.

What is the will of God for mankind? – Response to a question

The question was asked, “What is the will of God for mankind?” The answer is, that each and every individual on the face of this earth returns to live in the Divine Heart of God the Father – that Heart from which, with such love, the individual was created in the first instance. The Almighty Father wants all His children to return to Him. Only when that occurs will the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary be complete.

What is the Divine Will? Response to a question

That every single human person on the face of this earth returns to live, out of their own free will, in the bosom, the Divine Heart of God the Father.

The Will of the Almighty Father

Christ said, “Have you not read that from the beginning the Creator made them male and female and said, ‘For this reason, a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh?’ So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore, what God has joined together, no human being must separate” (Mt 19:4-6).

The Divine Will of God the Almighty Father in relation to marriage, for those who are baptized Christians, is that one man and one woman give themselves to each other, with the intent for life, in and through the covenant of sacramental marriage. Anything else is neither of God, nor from God, despite man-made revisionism and precludes grace, because the Holy Spirit Who is God cannot live where the darkness of sin resides.

What is the Divine Will of God? Response to a question

The question was asked, “What is the Divine Will of God?” The brief answer is very simple: that we return to live habitually in the Divine Heart of God our Father.

What is the Will of God the Father? Response to a question

The question was asked, “What is the will of God the Father?” The brief answer is that the Will of God the Father is that all humanity returns to live in Him, for Him, in an eternity of reciprocal love, peace, joy and happiness. The Will of the Eternal Father is the Divine Will.

What is the divine will of God for mankind?

The question was asked, “What is the divine will of God for mankind?” A lot can be and has been said about this. But the succint answer is that none of us were created to live apart from our Heavenly Father. The Will of God is that all His children, all mankind, returns to live in His Divine Heart, so that true peace and His Kingdom can come on earth (Mt 6:10). This will fulfil Christ the Priest’s prayer to the Father, “May they all be one. Father, may they be one in Us as You are in Me and I am in You” (Jn 17:21).

What is the meaning of the divine inheritance?

The question was asked, “What does ‘the divine inheritance’ mean?” The response is simple, though by no means brief if answered in depth. The divine inheritance means we are called to literally inherit everything God the Father has, with Himself as Perfect Love above all else. And you have no idea what that is like, what perfect bliss and joy it entails, until you have tasted it.  (more…)

The Kingdom of Love – 1

How beautiful and incomparable is the Kingdom of Pure Love! Oh, if everyone knew what it was like! Yet many of us still do not know that it is very real and others do not want to know. What we are missing out on, as a human family! If only we opened our hearts, just a little. Yet grace is required to do so and many do not want grace, even though it is free for the asking. That is the situation (more…)

Thy Kingdom come – 1 – Thought for the day

“Thy Kingdom come:” how beautiful and profound are those three words in the Lord’s prayer. Inherently, though some are still unaware of this, those three words of Jesus Christ, which He taught us to say daily, mean that we are asking our beautiful Father to come and live in us as we live in Him. This as wherever there is the Almighty Father there is the Kingdom, because the Father Himself is the Kingdom and provides the kingdom for His faithful children to enjoy. Ergo “Thy Kingdom come” is the coming and reigning of the Divine Will on earth.

Fidelity – The key to the Father’s Heart

Fidelity in Christ is the key which opens the door to our Almighty Father’s Heart, as He is unable to resist the pleas and supplications of those who remain faithful to Him, especially when under duress. Love Him, therefore, above all else. Put His Will  before yours and ask Him for the grace of perseverance to retain your spiritual integrity. He will give you this grace without fail, as it (more…)

Description of the Virgin Mary, the Mother of God – 1

FOR THE GLORY OF GOD THE FATHER

Our Lady of LongmeadowYou came that weekday morning in response to my question, “Is this church a (spiritually) safe place to be in?” A question I had been repeatedly but silently asking myself when I decided to return to the Church, after having attended Mass in some neighboring churches but in which heterodoxy and illicitness were both prevalent to some degree or another and unashamedly passed off as the new norm.

There you, the Virgin Mary, the Mother of God – given to me by your Son when you were at the foot of His Cross and by the Father’s Divine Will, to be also my Mother as the Mother of all mankind – suddenly stood, in the main aisle of the church; at the fifth pew from the (more…)
