To spend so much time in empty pursuits while the Lord of glory sits alone in the tabernacles — it is travesty
January 14th, 2012
Habakkuk 2:13-14 Is not this from the LORD of hosts: peoples toil for the flames, and nations grow weary for nought! But the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the LORD’S glory as water covers the sea.
“Beloved child, how humanity busies itself with matters that have no meaning! How they spend themselves on building things that cannot last! To spend so much time in empty pursuits while the Lord of glory sits alone in the tabernacles—it is travesty! I wait for souls to come and no one comes. Do they not know that I have come infinitely farther than they are asked to come? I have imprisoned myself in a humble morsel of bread for their sake—I do not do it for MY sake! I am left alone. Is there no one to offer gratitude? No one to offer praise? No one even who will come to offer petitions? Children, know that when you come, I am filling you with all the unclaimed gifts of those who neglect me. To him who has, more will be given, but to him who has not, even what little he had will be taken away.* Children, come!”
Jesus, Beloved, I offer you the gratitude of the Gloriana for your humble presence in all the tabernacles of the world. I praise your holy name for giving us this indescribable gift, for making yourself wholly accessible to mere creatures. In the Divine Will I prostrate myself before all the tabernacles of the world, in the name of everyone from Adam to the last man, in reparation for all the many hours you are alone. Jesus, Lord, have mercy on us for we have sinned. Amen.
