Words from Jesus

  • I am your loving and merciful Savior Jesus but I have no use for the unrepentant, selfish sinner in My Kingdom.
  • You have just one God, one Father and those who choose to say they are here on their own doing will see the truth.
  • Those who deny Me will see the darkness for you are here on a mission and that is to come to know and serve Me.
  • Meditate on My Passion and unite yourself to the cross. Follow the path of your Messiah the one who suffered for your sins in the garden, the one who was scourged at the pillar and the one who bared the weight of the Cross and walked the road to Calvary.
  • For it is I Jesus who had the nails driven through My hands and feet as I watched My Mother weep below because she knew how the sins of mankind pierced Me.
  • She knew this was the will of your Heavenly Father.
  • My people, it is I Jesus who suffered that for you, now come to Me in silence and prepare your soul.
  • Pick up your cross and allow Me to assist you in your mission.
