TO PERSEVERE: KEEP THE COMMANDS AND COVET NOT
Lesson Meditation #100
(Imparted on February 28, 1995 to the Hidden Flower by Our Lady)
Beloved Hidden Flower of my Immaculate Heart, I love you. I give to you my Divine Son's Peace. I come today to speak to all my children concerning that Commandment which states: "Thou shalt not covet Thy neighbor's wife," and "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors goods."
My Divine Son, in His lessons, had addressed these Commands which are linked to the other Commands. By these Commandments, my children, God wishes for each of you to seek Him alone, and by your loving service to Him, rejoice in His Providence which lack nothing and supplies all your needs.
These Commandments oblige you through a constant check of your human intellect and passions, to accept that which God has given you, to bless His name for all He gives, and it obliges you to rejoice also at the blessings and gifts He bestows upon others.
These Commandments are kept by purity of the heart, my children. There can be only true humility of heart in the soul which abides by these commands. There can be no self-seeking, jealousy, envy, bitterness or anger in you. All of these things come from your pride and are stirred up by satan's wiles. To keep these commands is to keep custody of all your senses, and to make serious constant effort to avoid temptations against these Commands.
Thus, I do solemnly say to you who live in these days of spiritual darkness! "Turn off your television, lest your eyes behold temptations of the flesh. Turn off your radios and stereos lest your ears be led to revel in sins against purity and charity.
All things which arouse your passions and lead you to impurity are of satan. Thus, if you are not alert, the evil one will snare you easily by means of reading material, television, radio, stereo, concerts and all forms of unholy entertainment.
My children, the impure thoughts, words and deeds of these end times are clear signs that God's Law has been abandoned, as Scripture foretells.
I, your Mother, whose heart is Immaculate, call you back to a life of virtue and holiness, so that I may lead you to the Refuge of my Son's Sacred Heart.
All the Commandments are linked together. To Love God is to keep all of them, and to go beyond their words to the depth of sacrifice and virtue lived to an heroic degree by God's grace.
Seek this, my little ones, and pray for the grace of perseverance in this time of spiritual darkness. I, your Mother, will help you.
I love and bless you. Thank you for responding to my Call!
