2008.12.25 — The Word of God at the feast of the saint hierarch Spyridon

The Word of God[1] at the feast of the saint hierarch Spyridon[2]

Peace to you, My people, in a day of bishop’s feast! Peace to the Romanian people, and let days with confessor saints from heaven come down over its head, the spirit of confession, from where God’s peace comes upon it, if the Lord is well pleased, if this nation has in it sons well pleased by God. Amen.

I come into the book as word and I find watch at the gates for My coming. Oh, you should also watch, My people, and be good soil to bring forth fruit, because I am the Sower, Who sows My word upon you, so that you may hear it and listen to it and then bring forth fruit, son. You are given to know the mysteries of God’s kingdom, well sons, but for those outside everything is done in parables, so that by seeing with their eyes they may not see and hearing with their ears they may not hear, lest they may come back and I heal them, as the prophets wrote. (See the selection topic: „About the kingdom of God”, r.n.) And behold, it is the same now the parable of the seed which falls from the mouth of the sowers over those by the roadside, to whom the word is given, but satan comes and takes it away from their heart, or over those who are in a rocky soil, who hear it immediately and rejoice over it, but by not having any root they resist for a while and when the trial comes they fall; or over those on whom it is sown among thorns, who hear the word but the worries make it unfruitful in them.

Oh, My people, the Scriptures have always, always been fulfilled for those who are good and for those who are evil, and many from the servants of the church and from other people believe in this word, but the servants of the church do not confess it so that they may not lose their greatness, for it is written: «They loved human praise more than God’s praise, and seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear that they may not come back to forgive their many sins and to heal them because I am good».

The man is of clay and the same is his love. Oh, only if he lets himself be made by My hand, only in this way he would have part of holy faith in God’s works, and behold, those who were once enlightened by the gift of faith in God’s works, only those are tested by unbelief; however there is not unbelief but rather something else. When man is inclined to the evil things after he walks with Me, then he tries to cover himself as though God is not on the way with him, and by this he covers his sliding, and besides this there is also the lack of God fear, for I, the Lord, take away My gifts from the one sliding on his way and I leave him with his money.

Oh, what great and heavenly signs My testifying and miracle-working saints worked by their faith over the unfaithful and stiff-necked people when it came to have faith! What did they understand; those who saw in the time of confession My bishop Spyridon made for God? If the man does not want to believe, shall I not speak over him as though it is not fulfilled and as he would like to see the fulfillments of My word? However, did I not say that My kingdom is not of this world and that it is in man if it really is? And if you do not have it in you, what do you want to see, unfaithful sons because of your stubbornness when it comes to believe the word sown over you from the mouth of the sower, who always gets out and sows his seed? Satan comes at the mouth of your heart and snatches the word sown by Me in you, and even if you rejoice over it immediately, by having no root and by staying on rocky ground, then you stand for a while, and when the trial comes then you stumble, and if you are sowed among thorns, they choke you, and My seed sown upon remains without any fruit, and behold, there is not unbelief, but it is rather something else; it is that which is written in the parable of the sower who comes to sow his seed and only those who are sowed on good ground are those who listen to the word, fulfill it and give fruit. Amen.

My bishop Spyridon becomes a confessor on My right side, for this day is his day of celebration among saints, the day when he came from earth to heaven, a servant among saints both for the faithful ones and for the unfaithful who ask for signs to see, but those who want this become even more stiff-necked and even greater crucifiers for those who sow God’s word over them to the repentance of the sinful man.

Come, come great bishop, come and become a sower and may your coming down from heaven on earth be blessed, for those who are sowed on good ground are those who listen to the word, receive it and give fruit; one thirty, on sixty and another a hundred, as My mouth prophesied two thousand years ago when I was teaching the man about the faith and its gifts, which gives forth in those who are faithful by My word sowed on them. Amen, amen, amen.

– Come, great Lord, come to sow the seed of Your word, for its fulfillments are mysterious for those outside, for whom everything is done in parables, that seeing they may not see and hearing they may not hear with their ears lest they may get up and come to You to forgive their sins and heal them from their sins. Oh, what kind of fulfillments could those in the time of my testimony on earth see and understand, when You and I made great signs among those gathered at the Synod bishops for the destiny of the faith of the church, Lord? Oh, what miracles can they see now, those who look with their eyes and do not see, or those who hearing do not hear in order to come to You to heal them? The miracle would be the man’s resurrection from his sin, for man is taken out of dust, poor of him, and he does not understand the mysteries of the kingdom of the heavens if everything he does is clay, is dust. Oh, if You spoke through the Scriptures and by Your Spirit that You would come and shepherd all the nations with an iron rod, and if this is not fulfilled upon man, then You are not a fulfiller, or is the man, he who not receives You as Shepherd on him? Oh, if the man worked heaven on earth, then he would see Your great fulfillment with man, for You told the sons of Your church to say: «May Your will be done in heaven as on earth, Lord», and if the man does not work on earth as in heaven, what does the man want to see in order to believe? And I tell the man this:

What do you want man, to see and not believe? Oh, in order for you not to believe, you do not need to see, and you commit this sin of unbelief without seeing something in order to do it, but why would you need something to see in order to believe? Oh, if you are not good soil, then this is the guilt, why you do not receive God’s word in you, the word of your making from the mouth of the sower, who sows his seed upon you. Oh, there is no need for visible fulfillments as on earth, the fulfillments for those that would be to believe, but a heart full of God’s fear is needed instead and then love for God so that you may listen to the Lord’s word, to receive it and to be fruitful with it. Oh, do not forget the Lord, Who said that the kingdom of the heavens was not coming in a visible way, because it is not of this world but it comes mysteriously and dwells inside the man and it makes the man its palace, which the unfaithful people, because of their wicked deeds, do not look at and do not understand God’s kingdom in man.

Oh, people nourished by the Lord in His way with you! Oh, do not let satan come into your heart and take the word sowed into it! Oh, seek to ask from the Lord to have a root, lest you rejoice immediately over the hearing of His word and then only to wither away and stumble in time of trial. If your destiny keeps you among thorns, see that the worries of life may not make you bow and the word of the Lord and then His greatness to become unfruitful in you. Seek to fulfill in you the Lord, the Sower, and the fruit of His seed. Oh, do not let yourself be put down by those on earth, which can choke your care for the love from above! I was a great bishop in grace, but I did not make the Lord weak in me in the time when I was taking care of everything that had to be worked so that the Lord’s church could be taken care of. The Lord was wonderful in me and He worked signs and miracles through me likewise over those who doubted of His godliness. Oh, how beautifully my faith confessed God, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit! Oh, how beautiful the Lord is in the saints on earth, where His love is long enduring and full of goodness! It does not know about envy, vainglory, haughtiness, because it does not seek after its own benefits, and that is why it does not get angry or takes evil into consideration, but with great propriety it rejoices over the truth and not over injustice, and it is patient, it believes all things, hopes all things and endures all things, and that is why it does not fail. Amen. I lead you through my seed sowed upon you. Amen.

Oh, sons, make another little book and take out on it the work of love, well sons. Man is clay like any other things that he has worked, but if he works the book of the love, he becomes its palace; man becomes God’s palace on earth if he does not lose his love. Oh, let each other know the straining of your soul and work everything as for the Lord and then as for you, and you will be the fruit of love, and the Lord will shine on earth more and more powerfully with His kingdom in you and among you. Peace to you! The world celebrates as it knows the Christmas, that which is fallen from its place among feasts[3], but you should celebrate my feast of ascending to heaven from earth. Oh, set me as an intercessor between you and God, for the saints stay quietly and only if they are asked for help do they work the Lord’s things for those who rely on the Lord and His saints in everything they achieve in the Lord with love, sons. Amen.

However, You, Lord, as You were, You are today and tomorrow too, wonderful, wonderful in Your saints and among them with Your glory. Amen. Oh, give Your people the virtue of love! It makes him enduring as it is and it makes him wonderful when You are wonderful in the saints, oh, Lord, and let him love in this way in order to be, oh, Lord, and let him always, always stay in this way before You. Amen, amen, amen.

This is how you are to be My people, as My saints ordain for you to be before Me! Oh, My teaching and that of My archbishop Spyridon have been sweet in this day, only that it may stick, for sweetness sticks to sweetness. Amen.

Peace to the Romanian people! Furthermore, I will always speak peace over it, for I want to become the wonderful One into its midst. My love is long enduring and full of goodness and that is why it does not fail. This is how you are to live into the midst of the Romanian nation, My people, and you should be the seed I have sowed in its land, and from place to place, to fall on good ground and give forth fruit and bring Me ears of wheat, and I will reward you and I will always, always give you My coming, for only that is what it keeps you alive in this hard and full of temptation time and it keeps you from the sin of unbelief, and after it, I will give you its joy and wonder, I, the wonderful One within My saints and among them, My people. Amen, amen, amen.

[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 — of that time, Miron Cristea, (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) 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, (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/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.

[4] Old Style (O.S.) and New Style (N.S.) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_Style_and_New_Style_dates) are sometimes used with dates to indicate either whether the start of the Julian year has been adjusted to start on 1 January (N.S.) even though documents written at the time use a different start of year (O.S.), or whether a date conforms to the Julian calendar (O.S.), formerly in use in many countries, rather than the Gregorian (N.S.)
