The Word of God in Romania 1997.04.27 - The Word of God at the Feast of the Lord's Resurrection

1997.04.27 The Word of God 1 at the Feast of the Lord’s Resurrection 2 It is a feast in you, Jerusalem. It is a feast of resurrection, My people. My resurrection from the dead has left a day of everlasting feast for the Christians. Oh, Christian people, I am the Lord of the resurrection and I come to you with the greeting of the day: Christ is risen! Christ is risen! Christ is risen! I am the Resurrected Lord, and I rejoice with you, Jerusalem, on the earth. I am and I tell you too, sons: rejoice! Amen. Rejoice as you know how to rejoice with a heavenly feast over you, with repentance over you and with a holy joy among you. I, the Lord of the resurrection, have spoken to the prudes and to My disciples after I resur- rected. I, the resurrected Lord, also speak with you in a celebration of resurrection, My Christian people, My faithful people. Oh, who I spoke with after My resurrection? To whom I appeared after I was resurrected? I appeared to those who believed in Me, to those who walked with Me until the time of My passions and in the time of My passions. I did not appear to the world. Loved Jerusa- lem, be careful what I speak with you today: I did not appear resurrected to the world. I appeared to those who had the power to believe and to those who had the courage to testify about Me to the world, so that the testimony of My resurrection from the dead may be established over the ages. The unbelief is death, and I did not say: «The one who believes in Me will never taste death», and he, who does not believe in Me remains in unbelief. The man is never satisfied with unbelief, but blessed it is the faithful one, for he is in Me, the Living One, and I am in him. Oh, My Christian people, the man on the earth is no longer satisfied with unbelief, and I am with those who believe in Me and I appear and speak to them, as I did two thousand years ago on the day of My resurrection, and as I have always done over the faithful ones. The man believes into My resurrection, and for it he makes a feast for him, not for Me, the resur- rected One. The people gather together to celebrate My resurrection and clink glasses with intox- icating drinks and kill birds and animals during the week of My passions and they cook many kinds of food and pagan relishes and they say that they are Christian traditions and, eating and drinking and enjoying with their bodies, they celebrate themselves, not Me. Only the Christians know how to celebrate Me. (See the selection topic: „What defiles a man, what enters or what comes out of him? ”, r.n.) Oh, My people, these customs are not Christian customs, which are celebrated by the peo- ple in memory of My resurrection. But what are these customs? They are pagan customs that the pagans have been celebrating against the remembrance of My day of resurrection. The Christians were not celebrating with eating and drinking and enjoyments. They were celebrating with days of holy humility, of holy and true joy, of holy comfort upon them and they were not preparing dishes and all kinds of desires for themselves. They were preparing their soul and body for Me, and they were rejoicing heavenly on the earth. The pagans were not taking into consideration the remembrance of My resurrection day, celebrating My resurrection in lusts, in pagan eating and fleshly customs like today, My people, as the pagans are those who do not live in a Christian way before Me. And those who live as I taught them, they are called Christians after My name from heaven. I did not tell My disciples to sit down to eating and drinking on the day of My resurrection, 1 2 God’s Word in „Holy Citadel New Jerusalem” monastery, Glodeni – Romania, redactor note.
