Emmanuel, God is with us

Emmanuel, God is with us Catholic Gospels - Matthew, Luke, Mark, John - Inspirations of the Holy Spirit Matthew 1:18-24

18 Now the generation of Christ was in this wise. When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child, of the Holy Ghost.
19 Whereupon Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing publicly to expose her, was minded to put her away privately.
20 But while he thought on these things, behold the angel of the Lord appeared to him in his sleep, saying: Joseph, son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife, for that which is conceived in her, is of the Holy Ghost.
21 And she shall bring forth a son: and thou shalt call his name JESUS. For he shall save his people from their sins.
22 Now all this was done that it might be fulfilled which the Lord spoke by the prophet, saying:
23 Behold a virgin shall be with child, and bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
24 And Joseph rising up from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him, and took unto him his wife.

Inspiration of the Holy Spirit - From the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Fourth Sunday of Advent - Emmanuel, God is with us Behold a virgin shall be with child, and bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which means God with us.

God is with you, do you realize what this means? It means that I am with you, and indeed I will be with you until the end of times. For those who donít accept my word it is hard to believe. I feel compassion for them since they are blind and donít see with the eyes of the spirit. They rejected me even before I came, they rejected me when I became incarnate of the Blessed Virgin Mary my mother, and they still reject me now because their hearts are like rocks that harden more and more by their materialism.

God is Spirit, and the Spirit was clothed with the flesh of the Virgin Mary to give life to the world. I am Spirit, the living Spirit of God that has always existed. My name is I am, therefore I existed before creation and I will always exist, because I am the Eternal Spirit, the One who has created every thing that exists. I am existence itself. Nothing can have life unless I give it, I am life and I give life with love. I came to renew your lives, which were defiled by the consequences of the original sin of Adam and Eve; I have washed them pure with my blood so that they can share in my spirit.

I am the Eternal Spirit of God, the Power of creation, the Love that binds everything that I breathe upon. Without my spirit you are nothing, therefore come closer to me, drink from my spirit and live.

The times for the harvesting are approaching and just as I have said, Judgment will come upon everyone. Live your lives for the Kingdom that I am offering, where you will enjoy peace, love, joy, holiness, justice, truth and integrity. Donít wait until you can live no more to become spiritual, open your hearts to my Kingdom now, and begin to enjoy the gift that I am offering everyone.

From all generations there have been souls who have opened their hearts to my call and have allowed my spirit to sanctify them. I desire to fill all of you abundantly with my spirit, I desire to transfigure your wretched bodies into perfect beings in the image of my divinity, I desire all of you to become like me.

But I can not act unless you let me enter your souls, you are temples of the spirit of God and yet your reject me, your are surrounded by material things and make them your desire and treasure, you become so materialistic that you harden your hearts and end up having false gods. This is my disappointment, but I take this opportunity to remind you once more of the importance to live just for me.

Desire me above all things, need me more than your own breath, desire to be filled with my Holy Spirit, to be sanctified by my holiness and to be transfigured and divinised by my love.

I will be very happy to listen to those who burn with desire for me, I will come running to listen to their prayers, I will answer the call of all those who love me.
