God the Father is pure, immaculate and terrifyingly majestic in His holiness. They are a purity and holiness which need to be witnessed, to start being comprehended. How can we expect Him to come and reside in us with His Presence, which He so intensely desires to do – a gift, a grace He wishes to bestow on all who would accept Him with their whole hearts – when we keep refusing to even attempt to become pure?
Purification in the desert is an ascent, for all our untoward attachments are removed so the Holy Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – can come and live in us. If we are not thoroughly purified this way, how can we open ourselves up sufficiently for Them to come and live in us with power and might? Perfect light and life cannot dwell where darkness resides. This is why we are presently being (more…)
An endless abyss, a bottomless void, of acute desolation. Then intense, unremitting hatred from Satan and his demons with petrifying terror, while they grab at you from every side; at times almost literally dislocating your limbs and ripping your heart out from your body, to pull you (more…)
How shall we be living in the era of peace, after the great Chastisement has been fulfilled? Unlike for many, if not most, of us living presently in the era of the flesh, during the era of peace we will be living thoroughly spiritualized lives – lives we cannot even begin to conceive of, right now – because the said era will, in effect, be the era of the Reign of the Father, in the intensely Eucharistic (more…)
Why we need, both individually and as a people, the Purification and Illumination that are coming
We cannot acquire true love for God the Father and worship Him in Spirit and in Truth, as He so profoundly and longstandingly desires us to do, unless the heart of our souls (the nous) has first been purified and illuminated. This because it is precisely the heart of the soul that “is (more…)
The illumination of one’s soul, better known as the illumination of conscience, is in essence and fact the healing of the soul that is ill, for it entails reopening the heart of the soul, the nous, to God the Father and His Truth, Jesus Christ; hence, to Knowledge – true (interior, experiential) knowledge – of God, after it has been closed and repeatedly (more…)
“The hour comes and now is, when the true adorers shall adore the Father in Spirit and in Truth. For the Father also seeks such to adore Him. God is a spirit and they that adore Him must adore Him in Spirit and in Truth” (Jn 4:23-24).
But what does it mean to worship God the Father in Spirit and in Truth? How do we (more…)
We have been created in the Image and Likeness of God. However, through both the sin of our First Parents and our ongoing sinfulness, we have proceeded to lose a lot of our likeness. Let us, therefore, work to recapture as much as possible of the likeness that we have lost, in terms of our open cooperation with grace, so that the Holy Spirit will find us ready to welcome His abundance fully during the forthcoming era of Peace.
The utmost desire of the Divine Heart of God our Father is that we wholeheartedly accept Him to live with us, in intimate union with each and every single one of His children on earth, all the days of our lives. Our Father’s greatest and, so far, largely unsatiated desire is that He comes to live, walk, and rest in us, as He originally (more…)
The vision of the Divine Light, that is, “The full vision of the divinity having become perceptible in the uncreated Light, in its deifying grace, is ‘the mystery of the eighth day;’ it belongs to the future age. However those who are worthy of it attain the sight of ‘the Kingdom of God come with power’ (Mk 9:1) in this life, as the three apostles saw it on Mount Tabor” (Lossky, In the image and likeness of God, pp. 59-60).
The Icon of the Divine Heart of God the Father: Part 3 – The Meaning of the Ecumenical Icon
In addition to all the aims already explicated in both the introduction and the Father’s revelations, God the Father specifically requested that an “intentionally ecumenical” (unpublished message, 9/15/11) icon be made of His Divine Heart Encompassing All (more…)
We shall delight thoroughly in God the Almighty Father and He shall delight in us. We shall live fully with Him, in Him, for Him and through Him; while He shall live with us, in us, for us and through us. We shall be truly His children and He shall be our One, (more…)
Our Glorious, Heavenly Father desires profoundly that all families, individuals, communities, and societies start holding weekly cenacles to His Divine Heart. God the Father desires this because He wants to be a central part and parcel of our daily lives. As such, Our generous Father has attached the promise (more…)
After the Great Chastisement which is forthcoming, we will start living in the era of the 8th day: the New Israel, the New Jerusalem come down from Heaven (Rv 21). But living in the era of the 8th day, is both living in the era of the Divine Will and the era of theosis (the deification of man), for we will be living in the Divine Light. This will occur because the (more…)
Our Almighty Father is holy and pure, sheer glorious Light. As such we cannot expect to meet Him, to enter into and reside in His Kingdom, no matter how much we love Him or indeed say that we love Him. Unless we become similarly holy and pure in our minds, hearts, bodies, and souls. So why would we not, at the very least, take seriously our striving in (more…)
The upcoming Glorious (Eucharistic) Reign is the coming on earth of the heavenly Jerusalem (Rv. 21:1-27). However it is also the Reign of God the Father, the Reign of His Divine Will, and the Reign of the Divine Family, in the era of the Holy Spirit. Thus the upcoming Reign of the Father, with and in all of His children on earth serving as living Tabernacles (more…)
“39. The Church, whose mystery is being set forth by this Sacred Synod, is believed to be indefectibly holy. Indeed Christ, the Son of God, who with the Father and the Spirit is praised as “uniquely holy,” (1*) loved the Church as His bride, delivering Himself up for her. He did this that He might sanctify her.(214) He united her to Himself as His own body and brought it to perfection by the gift (more…)
