Lesson/Meditation #79:

TO COUNSEL THE DOUBTFUL

(Imparted on February 8, 1995 to the Hidden Flower by Our Lord)

      Beloved Hidden Flower of My Motherís Immaculate Heart, I Am here with you and with joy do I come for your heart and soul remain little and humble before Me!

      As I continue to teach you, we go on to that Spiritual Work of Mercy most properly termed "To Counsel the Doubtful".

      O! little ones, how much doubt there is in your world! How much doubt drowns out My Light and prevents The Holy Spirit to work in your soul. O! I seep because satan has entered into My One True Church, so that the voice of My True Vicar on Earth is ridiculed and disobeyed. Now confusion and doubt are so rampant that priest is set against priest, and My little sheep are floundering in a mire of satanís lies.

      But do not be afraid or fear, for I Am with you, and where I Am all doubt must flee for he whose faith is rich and deep, and whose heart is wholly set upon Me, lives in Truth.

      How then are you, in these days of confusion and doubt, to Counsel The Doubtful? First, you must do as My Holy Mother beseeches you. Pray, fast, make sacrifice and be reconciled. Go to Holy Mass frequently, remembering always that it is the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Receive Me worthily in the Most Blessed Sacrament and allow Me to abide in you.

      The Holy Spirit, The Sanctifier is He Who purifies you, transforms you into My image and likeness. The Holy Spirit must dwell in your soul where your faith is continually strengthened through grace, and through infused knowledge. In all things you must permit the Holy Spirit to guide you.

      Little children of My Most Sacred Heart in these end times doubt is everywhere, like a weed which chokes out faith. But where faith is deep there is no doubt, for there I Am to be found and there is great spiritual Light.

      Yes, this is truly the time of great persecution of all My faithful little ones. And yet it is your holy duty to Counsel the Doubtful. You must first have your own spiritual house, that is your soul, in order. Your life must be an example at all times of your faith, so that walking in My Holy Will you do not abandon the Way of Salvation at every new or fleeting idea of man. No, you must be as a rock, unmoveable, yet always pliable so as to know and accept My Holy Will!

      Then you allow the Holy Spirit to guide you. To Counsel the Doubtful is to open to them My Infinite Merits, My Infinite Mercy. You must be of great courage and speak to all of Me as the Spirit prompts you, holding out to the doubtful, timid soul a lifeline to My Most Sacred Heart. Gently, lovingly, without fear, anxiety or frustration, you speak to all who are doubtful of the Truth, and you lead them through your own example, through your prayers and sacrifices, through solid instruction in the One True Faith, so that the way of salvation may become for them illuminated by My graces, Merits and Mercy.

      You must speak about the horrors of sin and how My enemy deceives you by every means, particularly in your mind and through your human senses. You must guide the doubting soul to one of My holy priests, and you must also help the doubting soul by means of sound theological doctrine that is in full union with the magisterium of My One True Church and the Voice of My Holy Vicar Pope John Paul II.

      Allow your lives to be lives of prayer, and go frequently to the sacraments which I give to you. Only if you are strong in Me will you be able to Counsel The Doubtful.

      You, My little ones who are filled with the Holy Spirit know how confused My children are in these end times when every heresy abounds, when evil is ruler, when virtue is mocked and My One True Church will be rocked by blatant schism.

      Love all in My Name. Prayer is essential if you Love. Sacrifice and Suffering form My Cross upon your heart and soul and anchor you in My Cross.

      Little ones, truly you live in the times where all who remain faithful to Me shall understand in a very clear way all I suffered for Love of you. The faithful remnant, though small, shall cry out to me in One Voice of unity of mind and heart through the grace of The Holy Spirit.

      Know that I do not abandon you, yet I do solemnly warn you of the grave dangers yet to come. I beseech you to pour out your faith generously by giving Counsel To The Doubtful, so that many of My little ones shall be saved. I love and bless you. I give to you My Peace. Hear My Words. Live them and give them to all so that fear may be annihilated and doubt will be turned to deep faith.
