|My Formula for a quick Healing of the ‘I’ Disease Pride
Jesus explains… My Formula for a quick Healing of the ‘I’ Disease Pride
April 17, 2020 – Words from Jesus thru Sister Clare
(Clare) My dear family, I confess to you, I have not been the best example lately. We are moving into our hermitage which was just finished and I don’t know anything that can be more challenging and sometimes nerve racking as moving. Just the sheer exhaustion of having to deal with taking things apart, packing, unpacking and putting them back up, over and over again can be an occasion of sin for an impatient person.
Yes, I am impatient. When people don’t pick up on what needs to be done but just kind of stare off into space, I am not a very nice person. I may not show it but inside I am seething with impatience. Being incompetent and not managing well is another occasion of sin for me, as if I were competent and able to do all things better than others!
I know this is stinky dog excrement to the angels and saints, the great cloud of witnesses, and I must repent for this. Besides that, I have just judged in my heart, and planted a seed of bitterness. Do you know what happens when you are irritated by others?? A demon takes up residence in the form of a spirit of bitterness, in your heart. And of course, on each occasion that irritation arises, you are planting more seeds and watering them. Judgement, bitterness, anger, resentment, all of these toxic weeds begin to flourish in my proud heart. They are like mustard seeds, they begin as tiny offences, sprout and then branch out into large trees that give the demons a place to perch.
After they have found a branch to perch on, they begin to feed off your negative feelings and throw up a toxic substance on you. Rick Joyner talks about this in his books. He has observed the demons dropping excrement all over Christians to cause them to forget brotherly love and embrace judgement of others.
I can get angry, although it takes quite a bit before I really get angry, but when I do my whole body suffers, energy is sucked right out of me, and harvested by demons who in turn repeat the cycle and spread it around. I used to justify my anger, “What is the matter with them? Why did they do that that way?” and if I had counseled them to do it another way, “I told them how to do it! Why didn’t they listen? Now look at the mess I have to clean up!
Or I hold the anger in and fall into self-pity. ‘No one listens to me. I tried to help them but they wouldn’t listen.’ That used to drop me right into a tarry bucket of self-pity, until I realized how full of my own excrement I was. In other words, I was judgmental and resentful that no one listened to me. Much has changed since those days, mainly because I recognized my own weaknesses in the wake of observing the good in others. At first, I didn’t see the good, but as I got to know them I recognized they were much, much better than I.
The Lord pulled the mask away, showing me the true source of my anger. My dear ones, all of our human anger, unless it is over injustice in the extreme, all of our protesting, and critical observations come from Pride. I know better, do it my way. And very simply our anger is focused not on the incompetence of another, but on God who allowed that incompetence to happen. Nothing happens without God’s permission.
Why did He allow that foolishness in another? Could it be perhaps, to test me in brotherly love? I cannot think of anything that is quite as noxious to the angels, as pride. God arranges our day and knows the disposition of every soul. He knows their weaknesses and their strengths. He brings them before us to see whether we are going to judge their actions or love them as He has loved us in the error of our ways.
This week, I’ve been a bad example because I have become impatient with just about everyone around me. And these souls have left everything to come here and help establish a prayer community. They have given their lives to God because they believe He is guiding us. So am I to become the bitter critic that finds fault, storing up a laundry list of toxic judgements in my heart? Is this why I am here? Lord, change me, please help me to see what I am doing.
Jesus began… “My Beloved, in these situations you live your day to day life based on what is getting done, not on what I am doing in the souls of others.
“What I would prefer to see from My Bride is a mother who is more concerned about the welfare of others than she is about what gets done. I want you to look beyond your human interests, which are not as important as seeing the state of the soul. What is going on inside that soul, how can you reassure them, how can you encourage and bring them closer to Me?
“There are many different ways to accomplish a task, and I see wisdom at work in you when you release it to competent hands to do it their way. But each soul has an exterior and interior layer. The inner man needs to be seen, his or her condition, what is going on inside of them, their insecurities and how you can comfort and love them the way I comfort and love you.
“It is the blossoming and inner growth that is most important to a soul…you should know this because when you feel squeezed into a mold that doesn’t fit you, you languish.
“Self-interest, self-pity, selfishness, self, self, self, blinds a person as to what they are doing in My eyes. When they are so eaten up with self-interest, anything done in a way that doesn’t agree with them becomes a criticism and weakens that soul whether they speak it out or hold it in. In community you will feel the burdens and sins of others, spoken and unspoken. You will feel the judgment behind your back, you will feel the rancor and self-preoccupation others have with their perceived injustices. As a mother, I want you to address these things very delicately. One of the reasons they are here is because they could not succeed in other areas of their lives. You are here, working with Me to make them whole.
“They do not see their Pride and selfishness; they only see what others do wrong. They do not consider where that soul has come from, how much that soul has already overcome, and where I am taking them. All they see is that they need to be corrected and to do things the way they are convinced they should be done.
“They are drawing from a poisonous lake of Pride in their hearts, that has been fed into by their achievements. And that touches all their human relationships with judgment and rancor. They see themselves as the savior, rather than as the instrument of Satan’s wrath and condemnation, that ultimately destroys tender souls.
“What is the remedy for this? Are you disgusted because someone did something the wrong way? Look into your past dear one…when did you do something the wrong way…when did you mess up and cause more work for others. Oh, you found one occasion? Good, keep looking. If your memory is good, keep looking. You should find at least 3 times to 7 times that you have caused others inconvenience by your ignorance.
“Are others slow on the uptake…kind of gazing off into the distance, not knowing what to do next? Think back, how many times were you placed in an unfamiliar environment and you stood there looking stupid until someone told you what to do. How many times like that, in your life did you do that while others were busy at work? Three times? Look deeper.
“Do this exercise with every fault you find in your brother and sister. It should bring about your cure very quickly. Every time you get frustrated with someone, dig deep, think of the times you did the very same thing.”
