Our Lord’s Revelations And Prophecies To St. Bridget (Birgitta) Of Sweden

…continued


The  words  of  the  Son  to  his  bride  about  how  people  may  rise  up  from  a  small  good deed  to  the  highest  good  and  fall  down  from  a  small  evil  to  the  greatest  punishment and torment. 


43rd Revelation


The  Son  of  God said  to  his bride: 
 “A  great  reward  sometimes  arises  from  a  little good.  The  date-palm  has  a  wonderful  smell,  and  in  its  fruit  there  is  a  stone.  If  it  is planted  in  rich  soil,  it  feels  well,  blossoms  and  makes  good  fruit  and  grows  into  a great  tree.  But  if  it  is  planted  in  dry  soil,  it  dries  out.  Very  dry  and  empty  of  all goodness  is  the  soil  that  delights  in  sin,  and  it  does  not  become  better  even  if  the seed  of  the  virtues  is  sown  in  there.  But  rich  is  the  soil  of  the  mind  that  understands and  confesses  its  sin  and  cries  over  their  sin  which  has  provoked  their  Creator  to anger.  If  the  date-stone,  that  is,  if  the  thought  of  my  severe  judgment  and  power  is sown in such a mind,  it  immediately  strikes  three  roots  in  the  mind. The  first  one  is  that  he  thinks  about  how  he  can  do  nothing  without  my  help, and  for  this  reason  he  opens  his  mouth  in  prayer  to  me.  The  second  is  that  he  begins to  give  some  small  alms  to  me  for  the  sake  of  my  honor.  The  third  is  that  he separates  himself  from  worldly  affairs  in  order  to  better  serve  me.  He  then  begins  to restrain  himself  from  superfluities  through  daily  fasting  and  abstains  from  and denies  his  own  will  and  lust,  and  this  is  the  trunk  of  the  tree. After  this,  the  branches  of  love  grow  when  he  leads  and  draws  everyone  he  can toward  the  good.  Then  the  fruit  grows  when  he  also  instructs  others  in  goodness  as much  as  he  can  and  with  all  piety  tries  to  find  ways  of  increasing  my  honor.  Such  a fruit  is  the  best  one  and  most  pleasing  to  me.  And  so,  from  a  small  good,  man  rises up  to  perfection.  When  he  first  takes  root  through  a  little  piety,  the  body  grows through  abstinence,  the  branches  are  multiplied  through  charity  and  the  fruit  is increased  through  preaching. 

In  the  same  way,  a  man  falls  down  from  a  small  evil  to  the  greatest  damnation and  torment.  Do  you  know  what  the  heaviest  burden  is  for  the  things  that  grow? Surely  it  is  the  child  who  is  conceived  but  cannot  be  born  and  dies  inside  the  womb of  the  mother.  And  because  of  this  the  mother  also  ruptures  and  dies,  and  the  father carries  her  and  the  child  to  the  grave  and  buries  her  with  the  rotting  fetus.  This  is what  the  devil  does  to  the  soul.  The  iniquitous  soul  is  indeed  like  the  wife  of  the devil:  she  follows  his  will  in  everything,  and  she  conceives  a  child  with  the  devil when sin  pleases  her  and  she  rejoices  in  it. For  just  as  a  mother  conceives  a  child  and  bears  fruit  through  the  little  seed that  is  nothing  but  an  unclean  rottenness,  so  too,  the  soul  bears  much  fruit  for  the devil  when  she  delights  in  sin.  Thereafter,  the  strength  and  limbs  of  the  body  get formed  as  sin  gets  added  to  sin  and  increases  daily.  When  the  sins  increase,  the mother  swells  up  and  wants  to  give  birth,  but  cannot,  since  her  nature  is  consumed in  sin,  and  her  life  becomes  detestable.  She  would  gladly  desire  to  sin  even  more,  but she  cannot,  and  it  is  not  allowed  by  God. Then  the  fear  arrives  because  she  cannot  fulfill  her  will,  and  her  strength  and joy  are  gone.  Pain  and  sorrow  are  everywhere.  While  she  is  now  despairing  of  being able  to  do  any  good  thing  or  any  good  deed,  her  womb  ruptures,  and  she  dies  while blaspheming  and  insulting  God’s  judgment  and  punishment.  Then  she  is  dragged  by her  father,  the  devil,  down  to  the  grave  of  hell  where  she  is  buried  for  all  eternity with  the  rot  of  her  sin  and  the  child  of  her  evil  lust.  Behold  how  sin  increases  from  a small  evil  and  grows  unto  damnation.” 
The  Creator’s  words  to  his  bride  about  how  he  is  now  despised  and  reproached  by  men who pay no attention  to  what  he  did  in  love  for  them,  when  he  admonished  them through  the  prophets  and  suffered  for  their  sake,  and  about  how  they  do  not  care about the anger he exercised against the stubborn by punishing them severely. 
44th Revelation 
“I  am  the  Creator  and  Lord  of  all  things.  I  created  the  world  and  the  world despises  me.  I  hear  a  voice  from  the  world  like  that  of  a  bumblebee  who  gathers honey  on  the  earth.  For  when  a  bumblebee  is  flying  and  begins  to  land  on  the ground,  it  emits  a  very  raspy  voice.  I  now  hear  this  raspy  and  ignorant  voice  in  the world,  saying:  


‘I  do  not  care  what  comes  after  this.’  In  truth,  now  everyone  is shouting:  ‘I  do  not  care  what  comes  after  this  and  may  I  have  my  own  will!’ 

Indeed,  mankind  does  not  care  about  what  I  did  for  the  sake  of  love  by preaching  and  suffering  for  them  and  by  admonishing  them  through  the  prophets, and  they  do  not  care  about  what  I  did  in  my  anger  by  executing  my  vengeance  upon the  evil  and  disobedient.  They  see  that  they  are  mortal  and  that  death  can  strike them  unexpectedly,  but  they  do  not  care.  They  hear  and  see  my  justice  which  I exercised  on  Pharaoh  and  on  Sodom  for  the  sake  of  sin,  and  how  I  execute vengeance  on  other  kings  and  rulers,  and  how  I  daily  allow  it  to  happen  through  the sword  and other afflictions,  but  it  is  as  if  they  were  blind  to  all  these  things. And  for  this  reason  they  fly  like  bumblebees  wherever  they  desire,  and sometimes  they  fly  as  if  they  were  jumping  and  running,  for  they  exalt  themselves  in their  pride,  but  they  come  down  quickly  by  returning  to  their  lust  and  gluttony.  They also  gather  sweetness  for  themselves  from  the  earth,  for  man  works  and  gathers  for the  needs  of  the  body  and  not  for  the  soul,  and  for  worldly  honor  but  not  the  eternal. They  transform  the  temporal  things  into  a  suffering  for  themselves,  and  what  is useless,  into  eternal  torment.  But,  for  the  sake  of  the  prayers  of  my  Mother,  I  will send  my  clear  voice  to  these  bumblebees,  from  which  my  friends  are  excluded  (for they  are  in  the  world  only  in  body),  and  it  shall  preach  mercy.  If  they  will  listen  to  it, they  will  be  saved.”
The  answer  of  the  Virgin  Mother  and  the  angels,  the  prophets,  the  apostles,  and  the devils  to  God,  in  the  presence  of  the  bride,  testifying  about  his  many  virtues  and  his perfection  in  creation,  incarnation  and  redemption,  and  about  how  evil  men nowadays contradict all these things, and about the severe judgment they receive. 
45th Revelation
The  Mother  of  God  said:  

“Bride  of  my  Son,  clothe  yourself  and  stand  firm,  for my  Son  is  approaching  you.  His  flesh  was  pressed  as  in  a  winepress.  For  since mankind  sinned  in  all  limbs,  my  Son  made  atonement  in  all  his  limbs.  His  hair  was pulled  out,  his  sinews  extended,  his  joints  were  dislocated,  his  bones  mangled,  and his  hands  and  feet  were  pierced  through.  His  mind  was  saddened,  his  heart  afflicted by  sorrow,  his  intestines  was  forced  in  toward  his  back,  for  mankind  had  sinned  in all  limbs.” 

Then  the  Son  spoke,  while  the heavenly  host  was  present,  and he  said: 

“Although  you  know  all  things  in  me,  still  I  speak  for  the  sake  of  my  bride  standing here.  I  ask  you,  angels:  What  is  it  that  was  without  beginning  and  shall  be  without end?  And  what  is  it  that  created  everything  and  was  created  by  none?  Proclaim  it and  give  your  testimony!”  

All  the  angels  answered  as  with one  voice  and  said:  

“Lord, it  is  you.  We  give  testimony  to  you  about  three  things:  First,  that  you  are  our  Creator and  that  you  created  all  things  in  Heaven  and  on  earth. 

 Second,  that  you  are  without beginning  and  will  be  without  end,  and  your  kingdom  and  power  will  stand  for  all eternity.  Without  you  nothing  has  been  created  and  without  you  nothing  can  be created.  

Third,  we  testify  that  we  see  all  justice  in  you  and  all  the  things  that  have been  and will  be,  and  all  things  are  present  to  you  without  beginning  or  end.” 

Then  he  said  to  the  prophets  and patriarchs:  

“I  ask  you:  Who  brought  you  out of  slavery  into  freedom?  Who  divided  the  waters  for  you?  Who  gave  you  the  Law? Who  gave  you  the  prophetic  spirit  to  speak  about  future  things?”  

They  answered him,  saying:  

“You,  Lord.  You  brought  us  out  of  slavery.  You  gave  us  the  Law.  You moved our spirit  to  speak  and  prophesy  about  future  things.” 

Then  he  said  to  his  Mother: 

 “Give  true  testimony  about  what  you  know  of  me.” 

She  answered:  

“Before  the  angel,  whom  you  sent,  came  to  me,  I  was  alone  in  soul and  body.  But  after  the  angel’s  words,  your  body  was  within  me  with  Divinity  and Manhood,  and  I  felt  your  body  in  my  body.  I  bore  you  without  pain  and  suffering.  I gave  birth  to  you  without  anguish  and  travail.  I  wrapped  you  in  poor  clothes  and  I fed  you  with  my milk.  I  was with you from your birth  until  your  death.”

Thereafter  he  said  to  the apostles: 

 “Say  who  it  was  that  you  saw,  heard,  and touched?”  

They  answered:  

“We  heard  your  words  and  wrote  them  down.  We  heard and  saw  the  great  works  that  you  did  when  you  gave  us  the  New  Law.  You commanded  the  demons  with  one  word  to  leave  humans  and  they  obeyed  you  and went  out,  and  with  your  word  you  raised  the  dead  and  healed  the  sick.  We  saw  you in  a  human  body.  We  saw  your  great  power  and  divine  glory  with  your  human nature.  We  saw  you  handed  over  to  your  enemies  and  we  saw  you  hanging  on  the cross.  We  saw  you  suffer  the  most  bitter  pain  and  we  saw  you  be  laid  in  the  grave. We  touched  you  when  you  were  raised  from  the  dead.  We  touched  your  hair  and your  face.  We  touched  the  place  of  your  wounds  and  your  limbs.  You  ate  with  us  and you  gave  us  your  eloquence.  You  are  truly  the  Son  of  God  and  the  Son  of  the  Virgin. We  also  observed  when  you  ascended  with  your  Manhood  to  the  right  hand  of  the Father  where  you  now are and will be  without  end.” 

Then  God  said  to  the  unclean demon  spirits:  

“Although  you  hide  the  truth  in your  conscience,  still  I  now  command  you  to  say  the  truth  about  who  it  was  that reduced  your  power.”  

They  answered  him:  

“Just  like  thieves  do  not  tell  the  truth unless  their  feet  are  pressed  in  the  hard  wood,  so  we  do  not  speak  the  truth  unless we  are  forced  by  your  divine  and  formidable  power.  You  are  the  one  who,  with  your power,  descended  into  hell.  You  reduced  our  power  in  the  world.  You  took  out  from hell  what  was  yours  by right,  namely,  your  friends.” 

Then  our  Lord  said:  

“Behold,  all  those  who  have  a  spirit  and  are  not  clothed  in a  body,  bear  witness  to  the  truth  for  me.  But  those  who  have  a  spirit  and  a  body, namely  humans,  contradict  me.  Some  know  the  truth  of  me  but  do  not  care  about  it. Others  do  not  know  it  and,  therefore,  they  do  not  care  about  it  but  say  it  is  all  false.” 

He  again  said  to  the  angels: 

 “They  say  that  your  witness  is  false,  that  I  am  not  the Creator  of  all  things  and  that  all  things  are  not  known  in  me.  Therefore,  they  love  the created  things  more  than  me,  who  am  the  Creator.”  

He  said  to  the  prophets: 

 “They contradict  you  and  say  that  the  Law  is  useless,  that  you  can  be  saved  through  your own  power  and  wisdom,  that  the  spirit  was  false  and  that  you  spoke  according  to your  own  will.”  

He  said  to  his  Mother:  

“Some  say  that  you  are  not  a  Virgin  and others,  that  I  did  not  take  a  body  from  you.  Others  know  it  but  do  not  care  about  it.” 

He  said  to  the  apostles:  

“They  contradict  you,  for  they  say  that  you  are  liars  and  that the  New  Law  is  irrational  and  useless.  Others  believe  it  to  be  true  but  do  not  care about  it.  I  ask  you  now:  Who  will  be  their  judge?” 

They  all  answered  him,  saying:  

“You,  God,  who  are  without  beginning  and without  end.  You,  Jesus  Christ,  who  are  with  the  Father,  to  you  is  all  judgment  given by  the  Father;  you  are  their  judge.” 

 Our  Lord  answered:  

“I  who  grieved  for  them  am now  their  judge.  But  even  though  I  know  and  can  do  all  things,  still,  give  me  your judgment  over  them.” 

They  answered him: 

“Just  as  the  whole  world  perished  once  at  the  beginning  of the  world  in  Noah’s  flood,  so  too  now  the  world  deserves  to  perish  by  fire,  since  the wickedness  and  injustice  are  much  greater  now  than  what  it  was  then.” 

Then  our  Lord  answered:  

“Since  I  am  just  and  merciful,  I  shall  make  no judgment  without  mercy  nor  mercy  without  justice,  and  therefore,  I  will  once  more send  my  mercy  to  the  world  for  the  sake  of  the  prayers  of  my  Mother  and  my  Saints. But  if  they  do  not  want  to  listen,  the  most  severe  and  harsh  justice  will  follow  and come to them.”
