Living in the Two Hearts

My Spiritual Insights and Musings

This Past Monday and the Monthly Message…

Posted by Anne Elizabeth on February 23, 2010

As many of you may recall from earlier posts my mention of the group, Lay Apostolate of Christ the Returning King, whose chosen vessel for communicating the Returning King’s messages is “Anne” a Lay Apostle.  Just enter “lay apostle” in the search window on my blog for those postings.

At any rate, she came to speak at one of our local Catholic Churches, here in Steubenville, just this past Monday.  Her message was one of great hope and encouragement for us fellow lay apostles who have taken up our crosses to follow the Returning King (cf. Mark 8:34).  Below are excerpts from this month’s (Feb) message, as well as from previous months, which highlight what Monday was all about.  Again, if you want to know more about this APPROVED group within our Church, I highly recommend visiting their site via the link at the top of this page.

The Message of Hope:

We are moving into an age of obedience [for] a great renewal is taking place…

At this time I would like you, My beloved apostles, to also accept that your view is limited. In seeking the good of all of God’s children, I must allow changes to come which will impact all of God’s children. I do this to bring about the goodness and peace I refer to but the change will be gradual in terms of the benefits to come. ~Message: November, 2008

Your soul is open to receiving heavenly graces, not just for you but for the whole world. Imagine how beautiful a soul looks to heaven when that soul is an open recipient of heavenly graces. ~Message: July, 2009.

My beloved apostles, I am preparing you for a new time which will bring you joy because you will serve peacefully [and] in complete trust. ~Message: September, 2009

This renewal fills us with light [for] we are sent into the World to be the Light of Christ:

Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” ~Jn 8:12

Disbursing the darkness for this is the advent of the Second Coming – the Return of the King –  one soul at a time.

Just as the weeds are gathered and burned with fire, so will it be at the close of the age. The Son of man will send His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all causes of sin and all evildoers, and throw them into the furnace of fire; there men will weep and gnash their teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. ~Mt 13: 40-43

Just recently we had a 18 to 20 inches dumped on this region with the snow piled even higher after the plows came through.  My good friend, Carol, had the interesting problem of being completely blocked in her driveway by a wall of snow.  No one could park their cars on her street either, unless a section was dug out by a resident for parking purposes.

One Sunday, after having volunteered to take her to Mass, the Lord instructed me (with the help of my angels – thank heavens!), to begin the process of shoveling an open space for a visiting car to park, and a clear driveway for Carol to get her vehicle out.

Now, this was a daunting task, I wasn’t that keen on doing it, but I had already reminded myself about the need of total obedience to the Will of the Father.  So, with Carol’s (rather awesome and ergonomic), shovel in hand, my angels and I began the task of “digging her out”.  It’s important to note that two men were doing the same thing for the neighbor next door and NOT ONE of them offered to help.

The age of chivalry is dead, and that of economists, calculators, and suffragettes has succeeded. ~Edmund Burke, on his reflections of the French Revolution.

So we began at the top of the snow pile and worked our way down.  The shovel made it easy to use arm-muscles rather than back-muscles.  About 3/4 of the way through the snow I received a “head’s up” that Carol was coming to relieve me of the shoveling but that I should politely refuse with the words, “I’m almost finished.  If I stop now, I’ll never get this done.”

Sure enough, moments later, Carol came outside “booted and spurred”, ready to relieve me of the shoveling.  The conversation transpired as I had been instructed.  She returned to the house to make my desert of choice, and I returned to the task of completing the job begun.  One thing I did learn from Carol, that took me completely by surprise, was the time it had been since I had started: Less than 1 hour.  If you had seen the snow you would KNOW this was a definite miracle!

I was tired, but not overly tired.  I was sore, but not hurting.  As I shoveled the last few piles of snow my angles told me the following: 

Thus it will be at the end of this age.  All the wickedness and evil that exists in the world today will be gathered swiftly and removed within a “blink of an eye”.

Lo! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,  in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound…and we shall be changed. ~1 Cor 15: 51-52

Many Church Fathers tell us the same thing while including ALL of Creation:

Creation, reborn and freed from bondage, will yield an abundance of food of all kind from the heaven’s dew and the fertility of the earth. ~ St Irenaeus, Adversus Haereses.

We do confess that a kingdom is promised to us upon the earth, although before heaven, only in another state of existence… ~Tertullian, Nicene Church Father, (155-240 AD) [emphasis added]

“Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” ~Mt 6:10

But before the age is renewed, the Church must follow her Lord in His Passion:

Before Christ’s second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers.  The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth will unveil the mystery of iniquity in the form of a religious deception offering many men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the Truth… ~CCC§675

They will imprison very many persons, and will be guilty of more massacres [as if the 55+ million babies killed in Abortion around the globe isn’t enough].  They will attempt to kill all priests and all the religious.  But this shall NOT LAST LONG.  People will imagine that all is lost; but the good God shall save all.  It will be like a sign of the last judgment… Religion shall flourish again better than ever before! ~St John Vianne, The Christian Trumpet (emphasis ADDED).

Thus those of us who are called to the service of Our Risen Lord through His Holy Mother must be ever VIGILANT and CONSTANT in our service within our daily lives.

Rejoice in the rhythm of your day [for] you are being “smoothed” into holiness like a rock in a riverbed is shaped and polished by the waters that flow over  it.  But BEWARE and BE CAREFUL to distinguish between heaven and hell.

Heaven whispers, “I love you!  You are in my Love and all things are possible in My Love.”

While Hell whispers, “You are insufficient and inadequate for this task…”OR SOMETIMES IT’S…“You are so much better than everybody else.  Look how great you are doing with holiness compared to others who don’t seem to understand.”

The wandering soul is attacked with pride or with no sense of self-worth…

My “rule of thumb”, if it brings discouragement, despair, and a heavy burden – that’s a Satan attack.  If there is peace (even in chaos), calm, and a sense of well-being – this IS heaven.

I offer you understanding of the relationship between sacrifice and holiness. I offer you soothing graces to assist you in preparing your soul for heaven and bringing others comfort and grace.

Dearest apostles, you are surrounded by heaven. You are surrounded by grace which supports you, even when you feel you are unsupported. ~Message:  February, 2010.

In your current state of Life:

Just as Peter had to have humility to accept the BIG plans Jesus had for him, so too do we need to humble ourselves and accept His will for our happiness in our lives.

Those who are Single: In your daily toil, work on becoming the “right person”, that is,  fully you in your individual uniqueness, living your life for the Glory of God.

Married Persons: Heaven has such hope for our marriages.  For Marriage is the SUREST way of Sainthood.  Familiarity should bring reverence for each other with gentle and respectful conversations included in your communication with one another.  You must be a servant to the other in that you assist each other in the obtaining of holiness.  Lastly, NEVER compare your marriage with any other marriage.  You have an unrepeatable person with you , so how can you have the same marriage as another?

Priests:  You are as fathers to us all, “it’s the Dad thing”.  God flows powerfully through you, therefore you must be disciplined in ALL things.  But ESPECIALLY in your sexuality and celibacy.  Chasity is an on-going job that MUST be lived moment by moment, but it is ALSO a GIFT from God.  Which means, He has all the “instruction manuals”, all the GRACES that you’ll ever need to keep this gift, so that you can GIVE this GIFT to the Church in which you serve.

Religious: Your spouse is Jesus, the only Son of God, thus you MUST COMMIT yourselves to Him DAILY and not become distracted by the work load that is placed upon you or that you have chosen for yourself.  Christ IS your CENTER..  FOCUS thus on Him!  Maintain the RIGHT VISION so that you may receive UNITY and OBEDIENCE.  Two exceptionally important virtues to have when choosing Religious Life.

Closing Reminder to EVERYONE in the service of the Returning King:  YOU ARE LOVED!  YOU ARE PROTECTED BY HEAVEN!  REMAIN ON THE STEADY COURSE GOD HAS PLACED YOU UPON.

Beloved apostles, you are trying so hard to serve heaven. Please believe that heaven is serving you, too. You are protected and loved. You need only remain on the course I have laid out for you and all will be well. ~Message: February, 2010.
