The Word of God in Romania 2011.12.25 - The Word of God at the feast of Saint hierarch Spyridon

2011.12.25 The Word of God 1 at the feast of Saint hierarch Spyridon 2 The Lord comes on earth as word and He gives Himself to the people to their salvation, and woe to those who have saturated of this food that keeps alive the one who eats it, and who does not only eat bread, as man is used to be fed on earth! The Lord is coming to you as word, oh, people grown with the food of My mouth on your table of word, for you eat of My mouth like a child, to whom his mother gives chewed food of her mouth and thus her son grows up. The devil, hostile to Me and to you, would like and seek that I may no longer come to you with so much word that has so much life in it, to catch you then uncovered and to weaken your watch, your power, then your hope and the work of your salvation; however, I do not let him come and I come to you with My warmth, with My hand above you, to hold your little hand, My people, as I would no longer have you if I did not come to you as word and comfort of word. The world would also like this, that is I may with- draw into heaven with My river of word, for the spirit of the world is jealous of you when he sees that you are Mine on earth. It cannot be counted how much your enemies looked and always go on looking to see that I leave you without My support, without Me, My people. Your enemies lie in ambush; those who are not faithful also stay and look to see what else I am going to put on your table, what else I am going to give you and what I am giving you on My table. They would like you to be like them; to eat what they eat and no longer to take your food of My mouth, but you are in My plan and I work according to it and not after man, for man does many of his works without God, and flesh and blood cannot reveal My coming as word and My calling. Oh, no, it is not flesh and blood that reveals to man those coming from God on earth, but My Father in heaven does this, for man turns from flesh into dust, as he was made flesh from dust and then God gave him breath of life, and flesh desires as much as blood is alive in it, and it cannot inherit the kingdom of the heavens but only when the body of the flesh becomes a temple for the Holy Spirit, a holy body by the holiness in it, a place dwelling for the Lord in it. Oh, My word is not much upon you, My people. You would die without it with you, like those who do no longer hear it, as they do no longer want it; however, salvation is going to be with Me here, not somewhere else, only that the spirit of haughtiness hates man and over- comes him with this work when man does not have a strong watch upon him and his love totally for God in his choice by his steadfastness for the Lord. In heaven among the saints, it is not the feast of My birth now, as the world and the antichrist changed it according to their will without God, (See the selection topic: „The antichrist and the apocalyptic beast”, r.n.) but it is the holy feast of the great miracle worker Spyridon, the one full of longing and full Holy Spirit into the midst of the people in his time, and by whom God worked wondrous miracles on earth, and he worked always miracles upon miracles, as much as he had to aid all the helpless, those unhealed, those poor and sorrowful, and the group of hierarchs from heaven is staying now with Me and with you at My table of word on this day of feast for My archbishop Spyridon. 1 2 God’s Word in „Holy Citadel New Jerusalem” monastery, Glodeni – Romania, redactor note.
