2008.01.19. The Word of God 1 at the feast of the Lord’s Baptism 2 The Spirit of God is hovering over the waters and the angel of the waters is coming and putting the Spirit in the waters by the word spoken over the waters so that they may be sanctified by the power of the word and by the grace from God, coming down from God over the faithful to those whom the Lord has given power to become sons from God by their faith, for this is how I, the Lord, spoke to My disciples two thousand years ago through My Holy Spirit: «He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become God’s children, to those who believe in His name, for the Word Who was in the beginning became flesh, and lived among people, and those who received Him saw His glory, such glory as of the one and only Son of the Father, full of grace and truth», as it is written. Amen. (See John 1:11-14) Peace to you, to those who have come to take water of Epiphany, and I, the Lord, teach you the spirit of faith, to receive of this spirit of God giving birth in man and to be able to love God, for no one is able to believe Him, but only those who love Him. The one who takes holy water with a spirit of Epiphany upon it by the word spoken over the waters to be holy and to have in them power of cleansing and healing, that one believes then in this water and gives it a place of honor in his house and in his life. This is how you are supposed to do as well, for the word which comes out of My mouth to cleanse you, to sanctify you and then to guide you when you take it to honor it in your hearts and over your lives after that, for as the Spirit, Whom you do not see that is hovering above the waters in this day to sanctify them at the worked spoken upon them, as you believe in the Spirit, Who sanctifies the waters with- out seeing Him, the same with My word, which you do not see but you hear it after it comes out of My mouth like a big river, in the same way it washes the man inside and outside of him if the man knows to believe, loving with power the God, Who gives life of His life to the man, if he is able to believe as he believes in the power of the water sanctified by the word and by the Holy Spirit at the speaking of the word which calls the Holy Spirit over the waters. Amen. In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and God was the Word, and This was from the very beginning with God, and all things were made through Him. When God made the heaven and the earth, the earth was formless and empty and darkness was on the surface of the deep, and God’s Spirit was hovering over the surface of the waters. Then the Word, Who was in the beginning, spoke the word by the Spirit and al were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made of everything that has been made, and in Him was life, and then, two thousand years ago, the Word became flesh and lived among people, full of grace and truth, as it is written about My glory from the Father. Amen. Oh, it is not hard for the man to believe in My word, which made the heaven and the earth in the beginning when the earth was formless and void, when it was not made and empty. Oh, it is not hard for the man to believe in My word, which was hovering over the waters in the beginning and took the earth out of the waters. Behold, the man believes in the holy water with a spirit of Epiphany, but he needs to know how it is sanctified. The Spirit of God hovers over it and the word of God sets over it holiness and power of word and healing and faith. 1 2 God’s Word in „Holy Citadel New Jerusalem” monastery, Glodeni – Romania, redactor note.
