Good Friday

By Anna Von Reitz

Things are always strange on Good Friday.  All over the world, Stigmatics are suffering.  Strange wounds appear on their flesh.  They experience in real time the agony of crucifixion.  This happens to them every year.  Of course, they know the story.  In some sense, they know why it happens: it's because the countenance of Jesus is lifted up on them. They take on His Image and share in His suffering. 

Stigmatics have been studied for hundreds of years.  They have been subjected to all sorts of mental and physical tests, discounted as "hysterics" and venerated at the same time.  Most of them are perfectly normal people, except that they carry enigmatic scars--- tiny scars on their foreheads, larger scars on their hands and wrists and feet and ankles, and a large scar like a knife scar on their sides. 

You might think that they would appear predominantly in Christian countries and certainly only among Christians, but such is not the case.  Stigmatics appear all over the world, in many unexpected places, among people who are not Christians, as well as among the devout.  Imagine the consternation and wonderment of Muslim parents whose son suddenly and inexplicable displays the signs of the stigmata?   Or the Buddhist monk who looks down at his wrist and sees (and feels) a nail hole? 

Today, a Stigmatic, the friend of a friend who lives in Lebanon, is suffering.  He will come to the verge of death, and appear to be dead, and then, the miracle begins....the clocks stop....blood returns to his cheek.  The wounds heal as quickly as they appeared, and by the second or third day of April this year, he will appear as before, a mild-mannered man with gentle eyes, unremarkable except -- if you look-- you will see the telltale scars on his forehead and wrists. 

"Pick up your cross, and follow me," the words of the Word repeat in my head.  

Follow me, so that you are no longer afraid of suffering or ridicule or death.  Follow me, so that you can pass through death to eternal life. Follow me, because I am the Way -- literally. Follow my path and my footsteps.  Observe them well.  Follow me, because despite all appearances otherwise, I am Heaven-bound. 

What a steep and rocky way!  What a path, drenched in injustice and pain?  Yet, what should we expect?  That Heaven would be easy to attain?

In my work, I meet a great many people who have been dreadfully abused, and often, they are the children of others, who were abused for generations prior to this.  And always, they seek control.  

They believe that if they were in control, everything would be better and different, but the truth is that we abuse others because we have learned all about abuse, but very little about nurturing or compassion.  

And so, the cycle of suffering continues on.   Just look at Israel today.  "Never again!" they say, and yet, look at what they do.  

The oppressed become the oppressors who become the oppressed who become the oppressors.  Nobody stops the merry-go-round and actually stops abuse.  They just change targets and keep on shooting. 

Just like the hypocrites who abolished private slave ownership with one hand, and opened up the doors to public slave ownership with the other. 

This is the Great Mystery we are heir to--- the mystery of love in the midst of undeserving, the mystery of love that transcends fear and pain, abuse and injustice, loss and oppression of every kind.  

And Golgotha is the final lesson.

Since the garden of Eden, Adam and men have continued to blame Eve and all women for the natural physical and spiritual consequences of their own personal freewill choice to SIN and breach God's universal Golden rule of "do no harm" and breach God's simply understood 10 commandments passed to us through Moses and the teachings of the our heavenly Father passed to us through his earthly born son the Christ Jesus and the teachings of Mother Mary and all of the historical teachings of the obedient Saints and prophets who taught that it is our duty to each other and our Father in Heaven and Creator to care, support and love one another, not fight, make war, create physical and emotional pain of hatred for personal temporary control and selfish self serving earthly gain.
Women who act like selfish self serving men today are also part of the problem and we see this everyday in Politics and business and even families.
The sins of the forefathers continues generations after generation children are abused and taught abuse and self serving selfish actions are the only way in adult life to win and succeed in life.
No one is perfect and we all thoughtlessly and negligently unconsciously make reckless selfish decisions that harm others.
Those who seek a loving afterlife in heaven repent and make amends before the spiritual soul is released from the temporary biological physical body at death.
Those who fail to do so risk a hell like purgatory of their own making or even worse the second death condemned to having their individual spiritual identities being recycled in the void........
It gives me no joy to know many of my earthly incarnate spiritual brothers and sisters will not be joining me in the loving, peaceful Kingdom of heaven because they have failed to repent and make amends while alive for making life on earth a living Hell for the rest of us.
The teachings of Jesus tell us not to pray (or become spiritual energy prey) by worshiping idols and false gods in false temples, but instead, directly privately pray through the inner heart temple to our Father in Heaven and the Christ Jesus his son.
Today I pray for all the lost spiritual Souls embodied on Earth who put earthly temporary power, control and riches ahead of their future afterlife place in the heavenly worlds of our Father.
Karma is not punishment it is simply the Universal natural consequences of our freewill right to choose to love and support others or harm others for self-serving temporary personal Earthly gains.
Every single day we have a spiritual free will choice to help or to harm and are held personally equitably spiritually liable for those choices.
As above, so below.
As below, so above.
The power of kindness, empathy, compassion and service to others who need our help can never be spiritually underestimated.

Remember the Power of Kindness can never be spiritually underestimated.

This power includes the choice to end spiritually draining toxic relationships and put yourself 1st spiritually so you can share your love and kindness with yourself or others truly in need.

Even saying high and smiling at a stranger shares God' love and can shift the stranger's bad day to a good one and prevent the stranger walking by from their plan to jump off a bridge and kill themselves to finally end their earthly pain and suffering.
Every one has something to give and share with others even it all they have to give is a kind word of support or a uplifting smile!
It is spiritually important to love yourself and take care of yourself 1st but do so without harming or exploiting others so you can continue to serve and help others.
I wish you all a wonderful Easter Weekend and urge you all to remember that we would never physically deny ourselves sleep, clean water or healthy food which it is my personal opinion equals only 20% of what we physically and spiritually need to survive while in our temporary biological bodies. So why would we deny ourselves the other 80% we need to physically and spiritually survive and thrive. It is my personal opinion the other 80% we need is not money or material riches it is the rich loving positive spiritual energy exchanges we choose to make each day when we share positive kind and loving energy with others, pets, and nature.
If you are alone this Easter Weekend, share positive kindness and love with your pets and if you are alone and have no pets go out for a walk in nature and share your gratitude kindness and love for the beauty of nature our Father in Heaven gifted us!
So be it, it is done
