Ezekiel 43:8-9 They profaned my holy name by their abominable deeds; therefore I consumed them in my wrath. From now on they shall put far from me their harlotry and the corpses of their kings, and I will dwell in their midst forever.
“My little children, there is much to come and you will have much to endure. Indeed it has begun already and some of you are already being asked to bear the burden of suffering. I am with you my children! Believe me when I say this. Lay your cares upon me, for the cross I bore is your chariot to eternal life. Embrace your cross as I did and I will see to your joy myself. My children, the sufferings you endure, the cross you carry, they are tailor-made for you. But still, suffering is suffering and the wages of sin must be paid. Those who suffer now for Christ are fighting a great spiritual battle. They carry tremendous scars and wounds, but if they remain faithful, their victory in me will astound them. Stay the course faithful souls! I am near to you and I love you.”
O Lord, we are weary and yet the battle has just begun. Strengthen us O Lord, in your mercy. We are so weak, but we desire to live in your holy will for the sake of the souls you love so much. Jesus we trust in you. Save souls!
