The Word of God in Romania 2004.01.07 - The Word of God at the feast of the Lord s Birth (the Nativity)

2004.01.07. The Word of God 1 at the feast of the Lord’s Birth (the Nativity) 2 I become the word of feast of the memorial of My birth of the Virgin mother two thou- sand years ago, for it is written: «He was in the world and the world was made through Him, and the world didn’t recognize Him. He came to His own, and those who were His own didn’t receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become God’s chil- dren, to those who believe in His name». (John 1:10-12) Amen, amen, amen. Oh, children who believe that I came from the Father and from the Virgin mother to make the world again! Oh, how sweetly and how longingly My mother, the Virgin, read the Scriptures of My coming, by whom I made Myself known over the earth, and then I also made My Father known, for the beloved John said: «No one has seen God at any time. The One and only Son, Who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him, for the Son and the Word of the Father became flesh and lived among us. And we saw His glory, such glory as of the One and only Son of the Father, full of grace and truth». (John 1:14, 18) Amen. Oh, children who believe that I came from the bosom of the Father and I became flesh and that I also declared the Father! Oh, sons, I have come as word at the manger of My word to inhabit in you and among you full of grace and full truth and to declare to you the Father, Whom no one has ever seen but His only Son, born of Him, from the Father, sons. Amen. I have come with My mother, the Virgin, of whom I receive the body of a man, and we went to speak about pain, about love and about humility, and to comfort each other in our pains, for we are without any joys, but we do have a rich life, for I told you that the people who has water has what to drink of; it has life from heaven and it is not overcome, but it is humbled instead and I am well pleased with it and for it, because the one who is humble just as I was, is My love, and I am his love, and that one knows Me and follows Me and becomes My image and My likeness, for I am the humble One, and that is why I am He Who is, and I am, becoming humble before the man, for this is how God is. Amen. Oh, how beautifully the shepherds of the sheep believed in the night of My birth! I sent My angel and there was a great light around them and he gave them the good news about My birth, and then a heavenly host got together at the news of My angel and they all sang glory to the Lord both in heaven and on earth, and good news and peace among the people, and then the angels went up from them into heaven, and the shepherds came to Bethlehem and found Me and believed and confessed with a great joy the sight of the annunciation of My angel. Amen. Oh, My people, I am celebrated with My birth among the people and My mother is sweet upon Me and upon you in My word between Me and her, and her word between her and Me. Amen, amen, amen. — My Son, my son born of the Father and of me, the one who is forever Virgin! Oh, the man does not put an end to his thinking to be careful with much pain, much love and much humility at Your birth from me, at the sufferance of this mystery, which You have been carrying for seven centuries, dear Son, the only One born of the Father and of me. Let Your speaking with me before our people of today be for its building, for the pain, for the love and for the 1 2 God’s Word in „Holy Citadel New Jerusalem” monastery, Glodeni – Romania, redactor note.
