2005.03.20. The Word of God 1 on the first Sunday of the Lent, of the Orthodoxy 2 Be attentive, children who are My gates of entrance into Jerusalem! Let My power be in you, for you are weak and small for My heaviness upon you. Listen with wisdom and give Me power to strengthen you, for you are wise and know what I tell you by what I tell you. In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, I touch you and I take away your weakness and I strengthen your wisdom and its body, for you are the temple of the Holy Spirit, a dwelling place of the wisdom from above. Let everything that stands against Me and against you for My word, which is settling down today in its book with you, come down and stand aside and you should give yourselves up to Me because I can. Amen, amen, amen. Oh, how much power I had in My apostle Paul! And he said: «When I am weak, then am I strong, and then the Lord can». (See 2 Cor. 12:10) Oh, how much I can work in the one who lets himself under My power in the time of his weaknesses, by coming to Me to revive him, as David was doing and saying in his weaknesses: «I have looked out for the Lord, waiting for Him to save Me from the lack of the soul and from storm». Amen. My work is the man, My people. My work is to bring the man back to the Father. Oh, I have always asked you and much and I have asked you to take great care of My coming down as word on to the earth and to help Me, for I have told you that it is not I but the man who has to come. All the creature has been waiting for the man, not for Me, for I am, but the man is not. Oh, the man cannot learn to be, to take life from Me and to put it upon him and to believe that he can do My will. Nothing is beyond man’s power if he wants to believe that I am. I can, but I cannot without man. I can do everything that I have to do, but only through the man with a measureless faith and the same it has to be with his humility. I made the man for Me. I made him and I gave him life, and then I told him to work it and to keep it, and to be able to rest with My love in man, in My house, My people. I told him, when I made him, to have life with obedience, for this means for the man to love Me; Me and not himself. Oh, who is to tell the man what God means, what man means, what God with man and man with God mean? Who is to tell the man? I tell him, I, for I am the Word, but even this, the man did not want to understand sufficiently, that is to let Me, the word, and not him. And because he did not want to know and to work like this, I told him afterwards: «For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned, for each one will give account of everything that is inside of him and outside of him». (See also Matt. 12:37) I gave life to the man after I had made him. I opened My mouth and I breathed over him and he received life, and he received soul, and I told him to work and to keep his life that I gave him and to listen as I told him. However, even from the very beginning he received the spirit of disobedience, God’s adversary, and then the man was not able to love Me and did no longer work and did no longer keep his life. I gave him life and I gave it to him to be beautiful and to listen to My will and to love Me, because I did not make him for another reason. Oh, man, My sufferance! If I give you life then when you are born of the man by the man’s will, then you should grow and know Me then through the creatures and to seek to listen 1 2 God’s Word in „Holy Citadel New Jerusalem” monastery, Glodeni – Romania, redactor note.
