1997.12.25 The Word of God 1 at the feast of the saint hierarch Spyridon 2 My people, My people, I, the Lord, come again to you and I set down as word in you. I come, son, to you to measure your creature. Amen. I work over you with a threefold blessing, in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. The saints want to compare with you, and you should not let Me down, son, as the saints of My heaven have great honor for you, for they see, who you are; they see My work with you, My people. The saints look at My word with you, and they feed on My word as you do, and the saints want you to hear and to understand My word by the ear of the spirit, as they do, not by the ear of the body. Everybody hears from God by the ear of the body, but the body is of no use to the spirit, and it stands against it, as it is written: «The Spirit lusts against the flesh, and the flesh against the Spirit». The entire world is flesh and celebrates its feasts in the flesh, even if it, the world, makes use of My days of feasts. The world has turned My days of feast upside down, and I have no more joy from the joys of the world, as the joys of the world are for the world, not for Me and not for My saints. My Romanian people celebrates the feast of My birth among the people today, and the heaven celebrates the hierarch Spiridon, for this celebration is also held in heaven today. (See the selection topic: „The changing of the holidays – renunciation of faith”, r.n.) Everything is upside down on the earth, and I went as word among the great people of the Romanian people, and among those, who call themselves the church of the Romanian people, and I told them to set down with the heavenly ones, and to put back to their place, those that were changed from their place 3 , as the saints of My heaven, always, always ask Me: «Lord, until when?» It is not the celebration of My birth today, and the world celebrates itself and not Me. The world rejoices without Me, as this is how the world got used to do. But you, My people, are not from the world, as I am also not from the world. I, son, do not have room with those of Mine in the world, as you also do not have any room in it. The world rejoices and you cry with Me of My mourning and of My saints’, but My day is coming when the world will cry for its morning, and you will rejoice with My joy, as this is written in the Scripture. I travail again for the world, as you also do, but after this birth, we will forget about pains for joy, that the world that was not born from above, was born from heaven now. It is written that he, who is not born from above, cannot be of the heavenly kingdom on the earth, and behold, the world is the king on the earth, and it would like to be in heaven likewise, but the heaven is that which is not seen, as the eyes of the body do not see the Lord and those from heaven of the Lord. God’s Word in „Holy Citadel New Jerusalem” monastery, Glodeni – Romania, redactor note. Translated by I.A., r.n. 3 The Church Calendar (in Romania) up to 1924 was the same as that of Nicaea, based on severe apostolic canons, but in 1924, the Scripture of the prophet Daniel was fulfilled: «the people made bold to even change the times», when the primate metropolitan (Primate metropolitan = (in the past) a title given to the first metropolitan of a country; today it would be equal to that of a patriarch) of that time, Miron Cristea, introduced the Gregorian Calendar (Catholic) as result of a „pan-Orthodox” congress that took place in 1923, in Constantinople. At that congress, the patriarch of that time, Meletie, proposed the acceptance of the „revised” Julian Calendar, which was in accord with the Catholic one for a period up to the year 2800 and „it was allowing that all the feasts to be celebrated at the same time with those of other confessions”; «… and he shall wear out the saints of the Most High and he shall think to change the times and the law…» (Daniel 7/25).r.n. 1 2 1
