Luke: 6:43-45 “No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. Each tree is recognized by its own fruit. People do not pick figs from thornbushes, or grapes from briers. A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of – I was thinking more about why many people including the Protestants seem to believe all the apparitions of Mary as being false and many seem to believe it is from the devil. It is true for sure we have to test out every spirit and that is what the Vatican does constantly. There was a saying in the Catholic Church ‘the quickest way to get persecuted by the Catholic Church is to say that you had a vision.’ You only have to look back at history to see how true this saying is.
Jesus Rocked the Boat
Most saints were given an extremely hard time while they were alive, because the church would not believe them. When the saints were safely buried and out of harm’s way, the church often canonised them. Saints are like Jesus they often rock the boat. People don’t like to be told they are wrong for one thing. They don’t like their spirituality to be upgraded. They want to stay in their comfort zone. If we are to follow Jesus we can’t do that. If we want to stay comfortable, we are going to find that we are on the road to hell not heaven. To follow Jesus you are always climbing to higher places of righteousness. Climbing higher and higher up God’s Mountain is never easy nor comfortable.
1 Corinthians 13:7-8. (Love) always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. Love never fails – What is the fruit of a believer in Jesus? Love!! Love of God and love of neighbour. Love is not always sweet and mushy. True love will speak out and even correct you if necessary. Because love doesn’t want you to waste your life and it is always wanting the best for you. Love is not weak. Love can be cruel to be kind even. People these days hate discipline more than any other generation in history before it, far as I am concern. The fruit of a true disciple of Jesus is explained to me well in 1 John4:7. Let us love another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.
Look Closely At the Apparitions of Mary
All these apparitions of Mary if you look closely and honestly you will see the fruit that has been offering to us by her, it is always for us to grow with love of God and our neighbour. If the apparitions were of the devil he would do the very opposite. He would teach us it is OK to be lazy spiritually, so that you will not advance in the Kingdom of God. Mary doesn’t teach laziness, she is telling us to pull up our socks. She is saying pray harder, obey the commandments of God like never before, because your soul and our world depends on it. She approaches everybody with love, she doesn’t encourage vanity or snobbery but humility and love in all her seers. She doesn’t draw people to worship her regardless of what people say, her attention is always bringing us closer to God through her Son Jesus. That is not what the devil would do.
Testing Out the Spirits
If it is the devil all the seers would be proud and educating everybody to take the easy and broad road to hell. Mary teachers us to follow Jesus by the narrow and straight road that only a few find and are willing to travel, because it is a hard and difficult road. Mary doesn’t teach to follow Jesus is going to be easy, she is teaching us not to get too comfortable here on earth as if this is our eternal home. Many people including Christians do live on earth as if we are not going to leave it. How dangerous. All the disciples with the exception of John were martyred to death, because they taught what the religious of the day did not like. What they taught was truth and it didn’t flatter their egos. Satan and all his followers’ uses flattery to get you to do what they want you to do. And so many people fall for it.
We All Need Help
God and His Children including the Mother of Jesus, speaks on the true path to enter the Kingdom of heaven, because they are sincere in wanting you to arrive in God’s Kingdom. People who follow the devil will say what you what to hear, so that they then can win your trust to get you to do what they want you to do and it is always to rob you of your inheritance that God is offering you. The journey to heaven is not a push over. There are many trials to overcome and we all need to know how to handle these trials. Not one of us can do it on our own. That is why I love and preach the importance of practising the communion of saints so much. We all can do with extra help from the saints who have made it to heaven, they know the way. After all they have arrived!!! When you ask them to help you, they do according to your faith. The more you believe they will intercede on your behalf, the more spectacular the prayer gets answered. Saints are very kind people, because they are in the image of God. They no longer suffer imperfections like we do. They love you more than you love yourself. All of the inhabitants of heaven does. They all do the will of God in heaven, not like earth.
