Are You the One
who flashes Your Light in our hearts?
Are You, Shaddai,
whom we considered so far beyond our reach,
that now show Yourself to us,
You who are clothed in fearful splendour?
behold! I Am;
Theme, and Song of my life,
are You really doing something
that exceeds our knowledge and understanding?
I Am; I am fulfilling My Promise;
Ointment of my eyes, am I seeing right?
are You, in Your faithful Love,
despatching from above Your Holy Spirit?
yes! how much more could I have spoken? Vassula, you see? I am coming down to be with you; My beloved ones, the Father said He will keep neither the records nor take account in His books, 1 but He will send you an outpour of His Holy Spirit quicker than planned;
why, the Evil one is challenging My Power and his threats are pouring down against My Church; so why do I have to delay or keep silent anymore? now, I, Myself, will challenge him with the Power of My Holy Spirit and draw each one of you into My Sacred Heart; I will draw all of you who want into an intimate union with Me, so that many of you will be favoured with the mystery of your Salvation, which is My Cross; I will enwrap your soul and keep you thus, in perfect union with Me;
and by grace I shall draw from you greater sacrifices, greater amendments; I shall draw you into a greater interior life and higher forms of prayer …. and, just as the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve, I will teach you too, to do the same;
and you, little child, bear My Cross of Unity, together with Me and allow yourself to be guided by My Spirit, He will be the Sign for you and your guarantee, 2 that you come from Me; My favour rests upon you;
– I still have many favours in store for you, generation, favours that will lead you into sanctity and into My Kingdom; so I tell you, you who would be ready to judge, do not start judging according to appearances, prematurely, let your judgement mature and be according to what is good and right;
– today I cry out as I once did in Jerusalem: “if anyone is thirsty, come! let him come to Me! come and drink, you who believe in Me! for from My Sacred Heart flows fountains of living water! come and refresh yourselves, come and revive! then, the light of your eyes will become the light of My Spirit;”
– many of you have made out of My Kingdom a Kingdom of words alone; I tell you: My Kingdom is Power; 3 I will visit anyone who thirsts for Me in one way or another, and with great power I will restore My Kingdom;
I thank You that You are pouring out
Your Riches, Your Gifts and Your Favours on us, O Lord!
With the Power of Your Spirit,
You will destroy the wisdom of the wise
and bring to nothing all the learning of the learned;
You will scatter the philosophers and bring them down;
O Holy One, come!
demonstrate the Power of Your Power, 4
demonstrate the Power of Your Holy Spirit,
demonstrate the Power of Your Goodness,
demonstrate the Power of Your Faithfulness,
Your Intimacy, Your Joy, and Your Love;
Leavened we must become; 5
grant us then this favour, O Lord,
grant us this favour to overpower evil,
and get rid of all the old yeast of evil and wickedness
that still remains in us,
by replacing it by a fresh batch of yeast!
listen: My Spirit will wield His Great Authority over many nations and adjudicate between many people; 6 this will be done to fulfil the words when I asked you to prophesy;
Goodness is with you! never doubt …. seek Me always, it pleases Me; seek Me always, it pleases Me; let your hand remain in Mine and you shall not wander astray ….
I bless you;
