Want to share with everyone a visitation I had of Jesus Christ in the early 1990’s.. I posted this over at the Heart Dwelling With Jesus wordpress blog, but I also want to ‘reblog” it here as well.. since it has to do with our beautiful King in Exile.. Yes, He is Real.. and Alive and Well., and He definitely is Who He said He Is!

Heart Dwelling With Jesus

1Jesus  painting by Akiane

“….yes, our Father’s Son is truly the Catch of the eons! 🙂         I’ll never forget years ago having a visitation from Him..   I was not permitted to SEE Him, but I heard Him speak to me, and I felt His presence so strongly in my room.      My mother had asked me to pray for my sister and father as there was a fued going on between them that was threatening to break up our family.      I agonized in prayer over them one night, but started feeling stomach cramps from the frustration.   I stopped praying and began complaining to the Lord in prayer, ‘God, it’s NOT Fair that I’m even getting a stomach ulcer over those two!”   I complained.     Suddenly I felt His presence at the left foot of my bed from where I was laying..  (From where He was standing, it would be the right foot…

   Abandonment to God:

Jesus’s Recorded Message to His Prophet of our Time-  Don (Fr) Dolindo Ruotolo

On November 19, 1970 Don (Fr) Dolindo Ruotolo died at the age of 88. Padre Pio once said of this priest from Naples, Italy, “The whole of paradise is in your soul.” His name “Dolindo” means “Pain” and his life was rich with this pain. As a child, a teenager, a seminarian and a priest, he experienced humiliation, which was the realization of the prophetic words of a bishop who said “You will be a martyr, but in your heart, not with your blood.”

In his profound humility, he was able to hear the words of God. Even with his hidden life he was one of the greatest prophets of the last century. He wrote to Bishop Hnilica in 1965 that a new John will rise out of Poland with heroic steps to break the chains beyond the boundaries imposed by the communist tyranny. On this postcard, he wrote words of consolation for Poland and all the countries suffering under the communist regime. This prophecy was realized in the papacy of John Paul II.

In his tremendous suffering, Dolindo became more and more a child who lived his self-offering to the Divine Father. “I am totally poor, a poor nothing. My strength is my prayer, my leader is the will of God which I let take me by the hand. My security over the uneven path is the heavenly mother Mary.”

One of the treasures from the words which Jesus spoke to Dolindo was the teaching about total abandonment to God.     Here are the recorded words from Jesus to Dolindo regarding this: 

Why do you confuse yourselves by worrying?
Leave the care of your affairs to me and everything will be peaceful. I say to you in truth that every act of true, blind, complete surrender to me produces the effect that you desire and
resolves all difficult situations.

Surrender to me does not mean to fret, to be upset, or to lose hope, nor does it mean offering to me a worried prayer asking me to follow you and change your worry into prayer. It is against this
surrender, deeply against it, to worry, to be nervous and to desire to think about the consequences of anything. It is like the confusion that children feel when they ask their mother to see to their needs, and then try to take care of those needs for themselves so that their childlike efforts get in their mother’s way.

Surrender means to placidly close the eyes of the soul, to turn away from thoughts of tribulation and to put yourself in my care, so that only I act. Saying “You take care of it.”

How many things I do when the soul, in so much spiritual and material need turns to me, looks at me and says to me; “You take care of it,” then close its eyes and rests. In pain you pray for me to act, but that I act in the way you want. You do not turn to me, instead, you want me to adapt to your ideas. You are not sick people who ask the doctor to cure you, but rather sick people who tell the doctor how to. So do not act this way, but pray as I taught you in the Our Father: “Hallowed be thy Name”, that is, be glorified in my need. “Thy kingdom come”, that is, let all that is in us and in the world be in accord with your kingdom. “Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven”, that is,in our need, decide as you see fit for our temporal and eternal life. If you say to me truly: “Thy will be done”. Which is the same as saying: “You take care of it”. I will intervene with all my omnipotence, and I will resolve the most difficult situations.

You see evil growing instead of weakening? Do not worry, Close your eyes and say to me with faith: “Thy will be done, You take care of it.” I say to you that I will take care of it, and that I will
intervene as does a doctor and I will accomplish miracles when they are needed. Do you see that the sick person is getting worse? Do not be upset, but close your eyes and say “You take care of it.” I say to you that I will take care of it, and that there is no medicine more powerful than my loving intervention. By my love, I promise this to you.

And when I must lead you on a path different from the one you see, I will prepare you; I will carry you in my arms; I will let you find yourself, like children who have fallen asleep in their
mother’s arms, on the other bank of the river.  What troubles you and hurts you immensely are your reason, your thoughts and worry, and your desire at all costs to deal with what afflicts you.

You are sleepless; you want to judge everything, direct everything and see to everything and you surrender to human strength, or worse- to men themselves, trusting in their intervention,- this is what hinders my words and my views. Oh how much I wish from you this surrender, to help you and how I suffer when I see you so agitated! Satan tries to do exactly this: to agitate you and to remove you from my protection and to throw you into the jaws of human initiative. So, trust only in me, rest in me, surrender to me in everything.

I perform miracles in proportion to your full surrender to me and to your not thinking of yourselves. I sow treasure troves of graces when you are in the deepest poverty. No person of reason, no thinker, has ever performed miracles, not even among the saints. He does divine works whosoever surrenders to God. So don’t think about it any more, because you mind is acute and for you it is very hard to see evil and to trust in me and to not think of yourself. Do this for all your needs, do this all of you and you will see great continual silent miracles. I will take care of things, I promise this to you.

Close your eyes and let yourself be carried away on the flowing current of my grace; close your eyes and do not think of the present, turning your thoughts away from the future just as you would from temptation. Repose in me, believing in my goodness, and I promise you by my love that if you say “You take care of it.” I will take care of it all; I will console you, liberate you and guide you.

Pray always in readiness to surrender, and you will receive from it great peace and great rewards, even when I confer on you the grace of immolation, of repentance and of love. Then what
does suffering matter? It seems impossible to you? Close your eyes and say with all your soul, “Jesus, you take care of it.” Do not be afraid, I will take care of things and you will bless my name by humbling yourself. A thousand prayers cannot equal one single act of surrender, remember this well. There is no novena more effective than this: “O Jesus, I surrender myself to you, take care of everything!”

Jesus, I trust in you!

Jesus going through Hell on the cross - Copy (2)

Jesus’ s Hell on the Cross

The above painting and description below is by Alexandra Kinast and was inspired by the Holy Spirit who gave her a “daydream” (vision) of Jesus Christ on the cross:

“Had an usual daydream about Jesus last night (will type  out later but feel nauseated and have a headache; I sort of wanted to sleep but couldn’t)  I tried to paint Him on the cross, but most of my paints were are the mural site and small brushes and the canvas wasn’t big enough.

… In the daydream I was trying to pull the huge spikes out of Jesus’ feet but couldn’t.  It was impossible; they wouldn’t budge.  Also the sky was a dark stormy purple and the land up there on the hill (Golgatha)  as dust and quartz rock.
His face was battered- so much blood… all over…and a massive head wound…
Here is the purple sky, but also his brilliance coming off him… the face should have more detail and I couldn’t put highlights with white in it because the white is at the mural site.”

This past Saturday morning, I was meditating on Jesus…. what Hell He went through ..especially during what we call His ‘Passion’,  yet in spite of the Hell, what love and majesty He expressed while undergoing the torment He did…   and  then what affliction He experienced throughout His earthly life, and how the cross He carried was not just the physical cross on His way to Golgotha., but His whole life was a Cross , yet He carried it joyfully , and with love for the Father and for mankind.

Opening to His words to Gabrielle Bossis that she recorded in the journal, “He and I”,  I came upon the following that gives hints of His life of the cross.       “Be one with Me as you suffer in your body, as though I had been mocked and scourged this morning.”

“Even before My crucifixion, in My journeyings, and My work, I suffered much physical fatigue.  Sometimes moral depression too, in the midst of so much human misunderstanding.  So weak and depressed, come close to Me as though you had chosen to be at the end of your resources just in order to reach Me…”

And then I opened to this!   “Do you remember the heat of the Sahara?  The desert burns less than I.  Can you understand My thirst for your awareness of Me, for your desire to be pleasing to Me, for your gratitude for My pitiable sufferings, your compassion for all the disgrace, the filth, the hatred I received during the night before My crucifixion and on the morning of My death?   And for the blows, and the torture of My body and mind.  Do you sometimes think of it?  Can you measure this love that made Me give Myself up when I could have escaped into the Invisible?  It was My love that went out to meet the torture.”

But through it all, He experienced a joy through His sufferings that goes beyond the level of joy we understand..   His joy was the joy of offering Himself to the Father in perfect obedience.   Every trial for Jesus was yet another opportunity He received to offer the Father a sacrifice of true unselfish love.    Many in Isreal quite frequently offered the Father animal sacrifices at the Temple but the  Sacrifice the Father was most pleased with was His Son’s sacrifice..      Jesus offered the sacrifice of Himself outside the Temple and outside Jerusalem’s gates.
