with my divine life residing in their souls will endure those days and enter my era of peace. My son, at baptism all my children receive sanctifying grace, but many do not progress beyond spiritual infancy. I will not lose any the Father has given to me. My spiritual babies will come home to be with me to prevent the loss of their souls. A soul who does not partake of my Eucharist remains a spiritual baby. Just as a human baby must eat solid food to grow to adulthood, so spiritually you must receive my graces through the sacraments to mature to spiritual adulthood. The body must be fed to grow.Likewise, the soul must be fed to grow and mature. Satan knows this truth. ... link to the word search for GOD SPEAKS WILL YOU LISTEN http://www.scribd.com/doc/22505473/God-Speaks-Will-You-Listen[/quote This question of 'spiritual babies' (which it should be remembered is a term of endearment as well as a description of immaturity) is interesting. What we have in the Verne Dagenais messages is very similar to what I'm finding in Fr Adam Skwarczynski's visions as contained in his as yet untranslated Polish book, written under the pseudonym 'Ivan Novotny', entitled 'Z Aniolem do Nowego Swiata'. It's a fascinating and extremely thought-provoking read, even if it is a little difficult to evaluate as by his own admission it is a mixture of his own mystical experiences from childhood and the accounts of others. In Fr Adam's book you find the idea that God will miraculously take a lot of people (and not necessarily bad folk) off the earth, with only a remnant making it through to the Era of Peace. The reason I bring this up is that one puzzling feature of recent prophetic messages that look as though they could be authentic is that some talk openly about the Era of Peace, while others talk explicitly about being taken 'home' or to 'heaven' (Julie Whedbee and Glynda Linkous being in the second category). I'm still trying to sort this out, but it seems to me that God is preparing people for different things - for some the time ahead will mean their final days on earth, either because they fall into the 'spiritual babies' class and need to disappear for their own protection, because their earthly work is ended, or because they will be granted the crown of martyrdom. For others the mission will be to survive through the coming trials (which is likely to be a very tough ask...). In other words, I'm coming round to a possibility that Kathy K (I think) mentioned somewhere before on this thread, i.e. that there is a grain of truth in the notion of a Rapture, but it has been fundamentally misunderstood by its proponents as the fulfillment of God's favour for all true believers (who will gloat from heaven over the fate of the world...). Contrary to this fundamentalist Protestant view, what Fr Adam S. and the 'God speaks will you listen' messages both suggest is that it is the spiritually mature who will be 'left behind' to enter the Era of Peace. Does this make any sense?
