Through His Instrument, the Girl of My Will in Jesus

The Girl of My Will in Jesus in the Holy Spirit: When we look at this light[1], we try to identify with Jesus: Jesus is the Light, we are the light in Jesus.

Everything that we are is because of graces: to us, the divine light is like the source that leads us to where we must be.

We walk in these times through darkness; we walk through a world of people who have lost faith, a world that controls faith, a world of people who believe they have faith while they don’t give themselves to God, while they don’t have trust when Jesus speaks.

We have received teachings of love from God, and those teachings of love have led us to where we are today.

To us, the cross is a path of life; the Cross: is Jesus.

When we hear speak of the cross, we, the children of God, we think of Jesus of Nazareth right away – the One who allowed himself to be taken by human will, the One who let himself be crucified out of love for us.

It was human will that crucified Jesus; it was human will that wanted to contradict what he was teaching.

The children of God are beings who want to live in the truth, who want to be nourished by love; God's children are thirsty, but human will, it doesn’t feed us, human will doesn’t give us to drink, and so we’re always hungry, we’re always thirsty.

Those who crucified Jesus were like this; they knew the laws; those laws, they would put them before God's children, they nourished them with laws, they would give them to drink and that water was God's law, and so, everything was well-presented to them.

This was how they should have been, but they were doing all this with their human will; their human will was always placed before the child of God. They were nourishing God's children, but they were God's children as well.

However, their human will was very powerful; they didn’t want to be disturbed. The law was for them a means to nourish God's children, to give them to drink, and those who didn’t want that nourishment, those who didn’t want to drink that nourishment, these were cast aside.

We need only think of the tax collector! By the way, Jesus, through the almightiness of his love, spoke to us about the tax collector. All this was to say that the Pharisees were children of God, but that they had their human will: they were making God's children suffer.

They would feed them but, they, they didn’t put their love into that food. They would give them to drink, but they wouldn’t put any love into that drink. And so, what they were receiving was something without flavour.

The laws of God are love, the laws of God are a means to guide us in the darkness. This hasn’t changed because before Jesus came on earth, God the Father had given laws. God the Father had wanted to guide them, his children, who were walking in darkness, because his children were living in poverty due to human will; his children were slaves due to human will.

And so, God loved his children; God gave them laws, laws that were meant to be love, not laws that would show them that they had to listen – this would have been difficult, hard.

No, these were laws of love to protect them from Satan because they were walking in darkness; but those laws came from whom? They came from God, they came from The Love himself.

So, those laws were meant to bring peace, were meant to bring joy to God's children, but they were in so much pain, so much pain, that they were moving forward in great suffering; they were always contradicting what God was saying through Moses.

Remember that Moses stayed with them a long time, helping them to understand the law, and they always managed to contradict, and so they were always contradicting; then God showed them that he, he was the Almightiness.

We remember the serpent made of metal and placed above a cross… well, those who were gazing upon it and had been bitten by snakes, were healed.

But this was because their human will was so strong that they, they weren't always ready to follow that law, that law of love. And so, God was showing them that despite their stubbornness, he loved them; he was showing them his love. The serpent of bronze represented his love: “I love you; even though you do not listen to me, I go on loving you.”

And so, they walked on as they were: stiff-necked children, children who were not always ready to follow his laws of love. So, those children lived in the consequence of what they were.

They were the ones who chose to always criticize when Moses was speaking. When something didn’t please them, they let it be known; and so, Moses, he was always ready to listen to God's voice to try and calm God's anger.

Because God, he was a God of power, a God filled with love. When we see our children becoming lost, when we see our children stray, well, we have a tendency to say, “Are you going to listen? Don’t go out into the street; don’t talk to strangers; you came home late last night, you’re grounded for a week.” Well, these are our words.

But God, he's a God of love; he has the right to put us in our place. If we, we give ourselves that right, that’s because we have a God who puts us back in our place out of love. And so, God has made his almightiness known in order to guide his children until today.

God gave us his Son out of love; he put him on the Cross because it was God who allowed it; God the Father allowed that his Son be crucified out of love for us.

He accepted everything, his Son, out of love for us: he's the Light of the world, he's the Way that shows us that his Father's laws are love, that his Father's laws are living, that his Father's laws are nourishment for us, a beverage of love; and so, we go forward in all this.

What the Holy Spirit wants to enable us to understand is that when we accept this, we also become light.

Jesus is the Light of the world; he accepted everything from his Father; he's the guide who led us where we are today.

Through the darkness, we went forward; we had our eyes fixed on the Cross, and we went forward; there were many obstacles and yet, we arrived where we are without fear, with joy, abandonment, renunciation.

Oh! It wasn’t always like this in our life – we have often gone astray, but Jesus, he was lighting up the darkness the whole time and our heart was always attached to his Heart; he was nourishing us with his Flesh, he was nourishing us with his Blood of love.

For our brothers, our sisters, we are lights as well, because we have accepted that nourishment; we have become lights, we accept, in turn, to be the cross.

In our lives, it isn't easy to have children who use drugs, children who leave home, their own home, to go somewhere else and make another home. We see our grandchildren who are torn apart by this separation and we go forward, we go forward, we go forward, and we learn to always love them.

God is teaching us to accept all this, to not judge them just as he did not judge us; and so, for the sake of our children, we must be lights in the night because they’re living their night: the darkness.

And so, let’s go on; we are the light; all together, we live in Jesus: we are the cross, we are the cross of love.

Jesus, our God of love, conquered evil. And so, when we give our yes, we accept that Jesus lived evil, and our faith increases, our joy increases, our peace increases. We look at Jesus and we taste our victory over evil.

Because when we see a child who has committed suicide, our child who committed suicide, we cry over our child. When we really believe in Jesus’ love, when we really believe that that child is saved through Jesus’ love, that’s when we conquer evil: we believe more in a victorious Jesus than in our pain, than in our despair.

We stop digging our own grave, we come back to life, because when we believe that Jesus loved our child, that he bore his suicide on the cross, that he brought it unto death, well then, we live our victory.

Our child, our child who saw Jesus, our child who had a choice to make: “Choose me, do not choose evil”, our child who committed suicide because he lacked love, he sees The Love in front of him, he throws himself into the arms of The Love.

Jesus doesn’t cross his arms, saying, “No, you committed suicide, you should not have done that; my Father's law says, ‘You shall not kill.’ This is murder, I do not forgive you.” Isn't this a lack of mercy? Isn't this a failing towards his Father's law?

Up to the last minute, we have a choice to make; God's law says, “No murder; you do not have the right to take your life for I am the Master of life.”

When our child presents himself before God, he's still alive; yes, he took his life on earth, his earthly life, but his soul has not yet known death, eternal death.

So, he must go all the way to the end of that law, all the way to the end: “Choose life; you do not have the right to choose death; you do not have the right to kill your soul.” And Jesus is there up to the very last, very last fraction of that child’s life so he can enable him to taste his love, to enable him to taste the Father's love, and his law of love.

When the child says, “Yes, yes, everything for you God, I want love,” then, he has said yes; then, he's carrying out his Father's law of love to the very end.

The law is living, the Ten Commandments of God are living; they’re not something for earth and afterwards, between earth and the judgement, they disappear – they are living, they are eternal.

So, at the moment of his judgement, these laws, these ten laws are still before the child, and the child must still judge, judge himself: “Am I going to follow God's law or am I going to refuse God's law?” And this is how far it goes.

Then, when the child says, “Jesus, I love you,” well, he has just said yes, yes to God's law. Then, he doesn’t come to know eternal death, and therefore, there is no murder – there is life.

We haven’t understood God's laws: God's laws are love, God's laws are mercy, God's laws are light, God's laws are love eternally: infinite love that gives itself, that gives itself, that gives itself, that never stops giving itself – this is the Light.

The laws of love enable us to see; they enable us to understand that God loves us unconditionally, and that if we die in Jesus, if we want Jesus, then we ourselves are eternal love, we are light.

This is what it means to live in the cross, this is carrying the cross, this is to want to live on earth in a world of misery, in a world of tears, in a world where we have to work to go towards the Kingdom of God; the journey towards the Kingdom of God will last until the moment when we enter his Kingdom.

We are victorious over evil, we are the light; to us, the cross is victory; we are all in the Cross, we are all the light of the Cross.

To us, the cross is a sign of eternal life and that sign of eternal life is us.

Jesus is the Cross: when we look at the cross, what are we looking at – the wood behind Jesus? We’re looking at Jesus: we’re looking at Jesus with his arms spread out, attached to a piece of wood; we’re looking at Jesus who lets his Blood flow over us.

When he lets his Blood flow upon the cross, he's letting his Blood flow over us. Jesus is the Light, Jesus is the Victory, Jesus is The Love: the cross is us, it is sin.

The cross represents what we caused Jesus to endure: we whipped Jesus, we laid him on the ground, we crucified him. The nails that are on the cross, well, that’s us, that’s all the evil we accepted.

We attached Jesus to our sins, to our lives, and Jesus accepted out of love; God the Father accepted out of love, the Holy Spirit enables us to understand this out of love.

The cross is us; the Blood of Jesus that flowed on the cross turned us into children of light, turned us into victorious children, turned us into glorious children; but in order to be glorious, we must go to the very end, we must accept to live in the cross, we must accept to carry the cross of all our brothers and our sisters of the whole world all the way to the end, in order to be glorified.

All our brothers and our sisters are part of us; there isn't a single part inside us that isn't in my brother, that isn't in my sister, and this has been so since Adam and Eve. We’re part of the same flesh, and so we’re all together.

My brother’s suffering, my sister’s, whether it’s in the past, present, or future, is part of me – therefore, it’s my cross. But when I give Jesus my suffering, when I give Jesus my despair, when I give Jesus what worries me, my doubts, then, in order to transform me, Jesus carries, carries what makes me a child of suffering.

He wants to take everything out of love so that I can really be the light, the light among other lights, because when I accept to look at my brother who insults me and that I'm still learning to love him more and more deeply, I'm no longer myself. To him, I'm the light, for what I am is Jesus.

When one of my children comes home and says, “You and your religion,” well, I continue loving him. To him, I'm the hope he's losing, I'm the lifebuoy he needs because he listened to this world; he's lost inside himself with all his misery, and so, I become for him a light in his darkness, I'm what God wants me to be for him – his support: I carry his cross.

We’re either light or we aren’t, we’re either good or we aren’t, we’re either true or we aren’t, truth or we aren’t; we can't be lukewarm because when we’re lukewarm, we aren’t light; we become like a shadow of ourselves.

We must be light, we must be the cross for our brothers and our sisters, the glorious Cross, the victorious Cross, the Cross that lights up the darkness. This is what we are; Jesus speaks to us through the cross.

When they look at us, they see people who have: a different language than theirs, who have different words that nourish us although they refuse to eat, who have a look that brings hope although they turn their eyes away from us – we become for them listeners, with our hearing turned towards Heaven, towards what they are on the inside, because inside them is Heaven: the Trinity is there and therefore, so is Heaven.

We are movements: yes, we welcome them; yes, we give them a meal; yes, we say we go to mass and we bring them with us, we don’t refuse them; yes, we don’t close our door to them because they’re bringing someone else and this bothers us. We are either movements of love or we aren’t: to them, we’re witnesses of the victorious Cross.

They don’t yet understand this cross because they haven’t yet tasted it, but they need to see it, they need to be around the luminous Cross.

They need this, they need to believe in something, they need true feelings, unconditional love.

They don’t need parents who say, “If you don’t like my way of thinking, well then, there's the door; if you don’t behave properly, one day God will show you what you have done and you'll suffer because of this.”

They know all this; they know because in their heart of hearts, they haven’t forgotten what it means to behave well before the laws of love.

No matter where in the world, there are always those who don’t know the Ten Commandments of God and yet, they know they must respect their elder – the father, the mother; they know they must not steal from their neighbour; they know they must not kill their child, rape him; they know all this, but how come they know human laws?

Human laws simply took the Ten Commandments of God and they placed them before humans to show them: “Okay, this isn't bad! This indicates that there can be order on earth!” They had to get those laws from somewhere, and so, they took them from the Ten Commandments of God.

How come there are those who never learned the Ten Commandments of God and in tribes living far away, they put them into practice? This is because it was in their flesh: the flesh of the Flesh that nourishes, the flesh of the Flesh that quenches, the flesh of the Flesh that loves, the flesh of the Flesh that respects, the flesh of the Flesh that goes forward and that believes in a Being superior to them: they haven’t learned anything but they know.

That’s because we carry them within us and we’re in them; everywhere on earth where there's a child of God, we’re there; this is unity, this is God's victory, this is the glorious Cross: we’re all in the Cross.

Let’s stop saying, “Bah! What is that? What is this cross of yours? What, what is your cross? If a cross is planted in the ground, and the top of it is pointing towards the sky and its arms are open wide to the world, that’s a cross, that’s a cross!”

This always reminds us that Jesus placed himself on the cross; let’s stop fighting by saying, “I'm the one who has the real cross. Yours, it isn't in the very presence of God.”

When a cross reminds us of the Ten Commandments of God, when a cross reminds us that we must love our brothers and our sisters, when a cross reminds us that Jesus is present, when a cross says to us, “Go pray, pray for your brother, pray for your enemy,” Jesus is present.

We can't not love the Cross that is Jesus and feel indifference; we can't do this – it’s like two opposites – this is love, this is love, this is to believe, this is to believe.

The Cross is Jesus: the cross is living; the cross is our life; the cross is our sufferings; the cross is mercy; the Cross is our Saviour; the Cross is the Resurrection, our victory.

This is what the cross is about, this is what we must believe; when this enters inside us, we don’t need to fight – it’s there, it’s present.

If someone argues, saying, “Your cross, I don’t believe in it,” this is: human will, human will that forms your thoughts, human will that wounds you, human will that leads you to not believe, human will that doesn’t accept the Precious Blood of Jesus, human will that judges those who don’t see, human will that leads you where you are – incapable of grasping God's power, God's infinite love. So, let’s pray, let’s pray as the cross has always shown us.

For when we’re on the cross, we pray, “Father, forgive them, they know not what they do.” Jesus prayed, and so, let’s also pray.

If only one person says to you that they don’t approve of a certain cross you have in your home, well then, let’s pray and let’s not say a single word. We don’t have the right to judge our brother or sister; this goes against the laws of God. This is what we must believe, this is our life: we must love unconditionally, we must follow the crosses of love.

Cross of love: this is all those who follow Jesus, this is all those who place their feet in the footsteps of Christ, this is what we are.

We must love unconditionally, we must shut our eyes to the world and open them in Jesus; then we’ll be in the light, and the only way to be in that light is to enter within ourselves.

If we keep our eyes fixed on what is external, we will always be blinded by the lights of this world, and the lights of this world don’t have the grace to bring us peace and joy; they don’t have the grace to give us rest so we can all be in God's hands.

If we have no rest, we don’t have abandonment, for we’re always inclined to want to know; and so, as we always want to know, we exhaust ourselves, we’re tired.

The children of this world are tired of always seeking what is inside them; they want to find solutions to heal from cancer, to heal from an illness, whatever it may be.

They haven’t found what is inside them: victorious Jesus, the Light of the world, the Almightiness; this, this is inside us.

Now, we will stop to take a rest. Thank you.
