THE SECOND COMMAND: DO NOT TAKE THE NAME OF THE LORD IN VAIN
Lesson Meditation #92
(Imparted on February 21, 1995 to the Hidden Flower by Our Lord)
Beloved Hidden Flower of My Mother's Immaculate Heart, I love and bless you. Unite all to My Passion, for I wish to give My Infinite Mercy to all of My children.
Today I will speak on My Second Commandment which admonishes those who love Me that: "Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain."
How clever is My enemy satan! How he has tricked you and saturated your world with total chaos. Your world decrees profanity which is rampant, and by laws of man, guide- lines are established to reduce profane language from being printed in your papers, or voiced in your world of electronic communications. Therefore, you are barraged by words which have derogatory meanings, or which you use as slang in order to prove your verbal skills. But, woe to all who are careful not to swear, but who use My Holy Name in every sentence of phrase!
I do solemnly tell you that just as Sacred Scripture tells you, so it shall be: Every knee shall bend at the sound of My Name. Yes, even the mountains will bow low. All creation shall bow before Me, for I Am.
How dare you who are all My Children, speak My Name with careless breath and no conscious thought of Whom you are speaking? I will give you examples: In your moves and on your television, you have laws which prohibit certain slang or swear words. These words are deleted from the dialogue, while the use of My Holy Name in the most unholy of circumstances, all manner of violence, lust, envy, adultery, is so common that merely a handful of My little faithful ones hear My Name thus profaned, and make instant reparation to Me.
Do you speak My Name out of loving reverence, respect, honor and adoration? No! You use it at every instance to express your fear, your anxiety, your cruelty which you are about to undertake. Do you recognize, My little children, why your world is submerged in Spiritual Darkness? Do you not recognize the work of satan?
I created you. I gave to you the gift of speech that from your mouth would issue forth words of praise and love to Me, and to your neighbor. And what have you done?
You have used My gift to be uncharitable, abusive and vulgar. Before Me your words are the sound of Hell and the breath by which they are spoken bears the stench of hell. You come to Church to worship and adore Me, but when My Most Holy Name is spoken you do not recognize it, and not recognizing it you give no sign of respect by bowing you head.
Oh! Do not say that such a display of holy reverence belongs to a time long-past and that in your day such reverence is misplaced and antiquated. Am I antiquated? I Am Who Am. Eternal. Never-changing. All the hosts of heaven ceaselessly praise My Name which is their joy. Are you who are made in My image and likeness to do less when I have made you My children, My heirs?
Reverence must always be given to Me in every utterance of speech, for I alone Am worthy of all reverence. If you were to understand and obey this, My Second Command, how quickly would My Mother's Immaculate Heart Triumph and virtue would reign in the hearts of My children.
But, woe, the Spiritual Darkness is now a thick veil over your eyes, over your heart, and thus your soul suffocates. Daily blasphemy crashes against Heaven, while all the angels and saints bow their heads in deepest sorrow, and yet raise their voices even higher in praise of Me, for they who see me know fully the Sanctity of My Name.
By My Second Command you are bound to the Truth in all manner of speech because I Am Truth! You are bound to sincerity in what you say, for every utterance is known to Me. You are bound to keep promises or vows made in My Name, nor may you abuse My Name and sin against Me by calling upon Me to witness lies, slander, blasphemy, heresy, or any manner of evil speech.
Behold, I Am not leased with those who tamper with Sacred Scripture, who intellectually consider themselves of greater learning and wisdom than I. Woe to those who establish themselves as authority over My Word and proceed to interpret My Word rather than discerning My Word as the Holy Spirit guides.
Woe to those in authority who alter Sacred Scripture, changing Divine Revelation to accommodate social norms and customs of society. I Am Unchanging. The same-as I Who Am Uncreated can not change, My Words to you do not change.
By whose authority do you make or seek to make these changes, where My Most Holy Name becomes a common name? By what law do you justify and rationalize your abuse of My Name in every form of writing, entertainment, and language which communi-cates your opinion to the ears of another person?
Woe to all who abuse My Holy Name and yet profess to know Me, to love me and to serve Me! You shall be cast aside into the fire, for I shall not know you for your do not know Me.
In these End Times I tell My children that if the Chastisements are to be mitigated, if the Divine Justice is to be swift and Merciful, then obey My Second Commandment and give all honor and reverence to My Most Holy Name at every moment. If you obey My Command, then you are in the Refuge of My Sacred heart and you have nothing to fear.
Hear Me, oh My children. Imitate the angels and saints in Heaven, and you will swiftly join them in ceaseless praise of Me.
Prepare and obey My Command, for I solemnly tell you: I Come!
