Divine Nature and Human Nature

Previously I wrote that we were begotten in the Heart of God the Father in eternity, in the womb of Our Blessed Mother Mary before the creation of the world. I termed this existence ‘begotten souls’ and further stated that God called these begotten souls ‘man,’ evidenced when God said: “Let Us make man…”(Gn 1:26). It was in that state that we received and lived in the Divine Nature of Almighty God. It is there that we were instructed in the fulness of the Spirit of our Lord God Almighty, and instructed in human life before we came on earth. It was in that state that we were in the mind of Holy Trinity, knowing as He knows, and we looked on in reverential awe at the Majesty and Power of our Creator.

When we were conceived in our earthly mother’s womb, we received our human nature. Our human nature then became the vessel to carry our Divine nature. Since we took on the fallen nature of our first parents Adam and Eve, our human nature imprisoned the Divine Nature and Divine Power of God within our being. Scripture confirms this: “It is sown a natural body: it shall rise a spiritual body. If there be a natural body, there is also a spiritual body, as it is written: ‘The first man Adam was made into a living soul; the last Adam into a quickening spirit.’ Yet that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural, afterwards that which is spiritual” (1Co 15:44-46).

Since we were living in the Divine Nature and Power ‘before the daystar’ (Ps 109:3), then this Divinity is our true nature, and our humanity is our second nature. As we continue with Saint Paul, we note: “The first man was of the earth, earthly: the second man, from Heaven, Heavenly. Such as is the earthly, such also are the earthly: and such as is the Heavenly, such also are they that are Heavenly. Therefore, as we have borne the image of the earthly, let us bear also the image of the Heavenly” (1Co 15:47-49). I emphasize here that the Divine Nature is our real nature, and that it is in ‘being born’ again that we enter into the fulness of that true ‘Nature,’ because “this corruptible must put on incorruption: and this mortal must put on immortality” (1Co 15:53).

Saint Peter explains this more fully when he writes: “Grace to you and peace be accomplished in the knowledge of God and of Christ Jesus our Lord. As all things of His Divine power which appertain to life and godliness are given us through the knowledge of Him Who has called us by His own proper glory and virtue, by Whom He has given us most great and precious promises that by these you may be made partakers of the Divine nature, flying the corruption of that concupiscence which is in the world” (2P 1:2-4). That is, we are already partakers in His Divine Nature and Divine Power, and it is through the birth, life, passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ and His Sacraments that we regain His Divine Gifts.

Saint Peter then goes on to enumerate eight virtues by which we are born again and regain our stolen Divine gifts: “And you, employing all care, minister in your faith, virtue: and in virtue, knowledge: and in knowledge, abstinence: and in abstinence, patience: and in patience, godliness: and in godliness, love of brotherhood: and in love of brotherhood, charity…For so an entrance shall be ministered to you abundantly into the ever-lasting Kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.” (2P 5-7,11).

This then brings me to the purpose of this article: Over the years of my earthly life (not a few!), I constantly begged God to send His Divine Nature, His Divine Will into my heart. I now conclude that I was asking amiss. I already had His Divine Nature, His Divine Power residing in me from before the times of the world! See the Scripture on this point: “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who has blessed us with spiritual blessings in Heavenly places in Christ, as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and immaculate in His sight in charity” (Ep 1:3,4).

I now make my prayer and petition to Christ Jesus to sanctify my human nature and bring it to unity in the Divine Nature and Power which I had before the times of the world. It is only in Him that this can be done: “For both He that sanctifies and they who are sanctified are all of one” (Hb 2:11). Jesus spoke of this on the night before He was betrayed: “And now glorify Thou Me, O Father, with Thyself, with the glory which I had, before the world was with Thee” (Jn 17:5). He goes on to pray to Our Father on the very point which I am making here: “And for them do I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified in truth…That they all may be one, as Thou, Father, in Me, and I in Thee; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that Thou hast sent Me. And the glory which Thou hast given Me, I have given to them, that they may be one, as We also are One. I in them, and Thou in Me: that they may be made perfect in one: and the world may know that Thou hast sent Me and hast loved them, as Thou hast also loved Me” (Jn 17:19-23).

It is necessary then that we pray for the grace to rid ourselves of all our inherited and acquired ‘fallen nature’ and so be able to enter into our true Divine Nature and Power. Jesus alluded to this when He said: “Amen, amen, I say to you, he that believes in Me, the works that I do, he also shall do, and greater than these shall he do (Jn 14:12). It is through Christ Jesus that we are sanctified and regain the Divine Nature and Power. Notice what Jesus said: “Whereunto shall I esteem the Kingdom of God to be like? It is like to leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened” (Lk 13:20,21), and later He said: “For lo, the Kingdom of God is within you” (Lk 17:21). This ‘oneness’ is best described as Eucharistic man. He completes what God said in the beginning: ‘Let Us make man to our image and likeness.’ It is done. Eucharistic man is the fulness of the Divine Power, Divine Authority, in the Divine Nature of the New Man, the Firstborn from the dead, Eucharistic Christ Jesus (Col 1:15).

Take back what has been stolen from you in the Garden of Eden, it is your inheritance in Christ Jesus: “How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leads to Life and few there are that find it!” (Mt 7:14). Enter that narrow gate, for here is a key to help you find your True Nature.

The Mystical Incarnation

First let us look at the meaning of ‘mystical incarnation.’ The term ‘mystical’ signifies having a spiritual existence that transcends human understanding. It is neither apparent to the senses nor obvious to the intelligence. It is an individual direct communion with and/or in God.

The term ‘incarnation’ describes the union of the Divinity of God in human nature. In our Christian theology, the Incarnation is the embodiment of God the Son in human flesh in Jesus Christ. The Angel Gabriel said to Mary: “The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee and the power of the Most High shall overshadow thee, and therefore also the Holy which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God(Lk 1:35).

Each person should strive for this individual mystical incarnation “which is Christ, in you the hope of glory(Col 1:27). We wrote in a previous article that this mystical incarnation already took place when God created ‘man’ in His Heart, in eternity: “The Lord (God the Father) said to my Lord (Jesus Christ) …from the womb (Mary, Mother of Jesus Christ) before the day star I begot Thee” (Ps 109:1,3). In this begetting, we were mystically conceived. This conception is further explained by Saint Peter when he describes it as ‘an inheritance, incorruptible, and undefiled’: “Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers dispersed through Pontus, Cappadocia, Asia and Bithynia, elect, according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, unto the sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the Blood of Jesus Christ. Grace unto you and peace be multiplied. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who according to His great mercy has regenerated us unto a lively hope, by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead: unto an inheritance, incorruptible, and undefiled and that cannot fade, reserved in Heaven for you, who, by the power of God, are kept by faith unto salvation, ready to be revealed in the last time” (1P 1:1-5).

Saint Peter goes on to explain this mystical incarnation as the unity of the Divine power and Divine nature of God in our human bodies. He insists that this gift and grace should be fulfilled in us providing that we have the faith and keep the Divine precepts: “Grace to you and peace be accomplished in the knowledge of God and of Christ Jesus our Lord. As all things of His Divine power which appertain to life and godliness are given us through the knowledge of Him Who has called us by His own proper glory and virtue, by Whom He has given us most great and precious promises: that by these you may be made partakers of the Divine nature: flying the corruption of that concupiscence which is in the world. Wherefore, brethren, labour the more, that by good works you may make sure your calling and election, for doing these things, you shall not sin at any time. For so an entrance shall be ministered to you abundantly into the ever-lasting Kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ” (2P 1:2-4,10,11).

It is in this accomplishment by the grace of God that we can live in His Divine promises “of power, and of love, and of sobriety” (1T 1:7).

“I make all things new” – Part 3

When we said before that Almighty God would do ‘new things’ (Is 43:19), and through these all controversy would be eliminated – but not without great tribulation. Here is my understanding how all things will happen.

It is necessary that the arrival of the ‘hidden Church’ or the Church in the wilderness comes on the scene without fanfare and pomp. It will be complete in it’s preparation and preparedness. It will not have any of the trappings to be found in any of the institutions which call themselves ‘church.’ It will be totally of God and will have no mark of human invention or control.

“A great sign appeared in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. And being with child, she cried also travailing, and was in pain to be delivered. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with an iron rod. And her son was taken up to God and to his throne” (Apoc 12:1,2,5).

Understand these verses in the context in which Saint John saw them: The ‘sign’ is that God is over all, as it is His universe, and the total authority over the world is in the hands of His true and only Church. The ‘woman’ is the original Catholic Church, which was, and is, the only Christian Church. The Church is clothed with Christ Who is the Light of the world (the sun), and she has full authority over the world (the moon under her feet). The government (crown of twelve stars) is on her head, signifies that the Church is the only governing authority in the world, and that all nations must be subject to the Law of God.

During the 2000 years of the Catholic Church, she has been persecuted and maligned and betrayed by heretics and Judases alike. Jesus commanded the Apostles to go, teach all nations, and baptize them in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, “teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you” (Mt 28:19,20). The so-called present Roman catholic church leader violates this command because members of his audience may not be Catholic. Therefore when it says that ‘ being with child, she cried also travailing, and was in pain to be delivered,’ it is obvious that a different means of bringing about the conversion of the world to Jesus Eucharist would have to be employed. It was necessary that ‘she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with an iron rod, and her son was taken up to God and to his throne.’ Many people think that the ‘man child’ is Jesus Christ, this is simply not so. If Jesus Christ had come to be the ruler of all nations He would never had been crucified. This ‘man child’ is Petrus Romanus.

The identity of Petrus Romanus becomes necessary with the events which have occurred in the latter months of 2012 and up to the present time in 2013. Some people claim that he is Saint Peter returning as ruler over the whole earth. I do not discount this, but have sincere reservations about such a position. One thing however is necessary and that is that Petrus Romanus would have to be called up to Heaven and vested with the authority by Christ Jesus to return to earth and bring the entire world into the authority and love of Almighty God. Jesus said: “Therefore did I say to you that no man can come to Me, unless it be given him by My Father” (Jn 6:66).

Saint Paul reveals this scripture when he says: “I know a man in Christ above fourteen years ago (whether in the body, I know not, or out of the body, I know not: God knows), such a one caught up to the third Heaven. And I know such a man (whether in the body, or out of the body, I know not: God knows), that he was caught up into Paradise and heard secret words which it is not granted to man to utter” (2Co 12:2-4).

Therefore I say that Petrus Romanus, whom ever he be, must have been brought up before God and given the power, and the authority, and the dominion, to bring all of creation back to God.
Again Saint Paul certifies this: “For I give you to understand, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man. For neither did I receive it of man, nor did I learn it but by the revelation of Jesus Christ. But when it pleased Him who separated me from my mother’s womb and called me by His grace, to reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, immediately I condescended not to flesh and blood…” (Ga 1:11-16). This was when Peter was still alive, as he confronts Peter in another place: “When Cephas was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed…” (Ga 2:11). This confirmation of St. Paul is necessary to understand and accept what the 1619 Prophesy says: “None but those who have ascended and received His glory, can descend and communicate the same, being thereby His representatives upon earth and subordinate priests under Him now.” Like saint Paul, I believe that an earthly man, not ordained by man, will be called up to Heaven and be given the authority and power to bring all under Christ Jesus, King of All Nations.

The hidden Church is already in existence, and it has fled into the wilderness, that is, separated from the errors of the supposedly professed ‘christians,’ and held herself in hiddenness (wilderness). We find absent in this wilderness the errors, blasphemy, and sacrileges, of so-called professed ‘christians.’ Instead we see that Eucharistic man instructs (feeds) and protects the Church.

It is then that under Petrus Romanus begins the final great evangelization of the whole world. “I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse, and he that sat upon him was called faithful, and true, and with justice does he judge and fight” (Apoc 19:11). The ‘white horse’ mystically signifies ‘Divine power,’ and this ‘white horse’ is identified as coming from the Eucharistic Church (heaven). This particular rider is identified as the Great Monarch, who is also Petrus Romanus, for ‘on his head were many diadems’ (Apoc 19:12). He is Eucharistic man, here called ‘faithful and true,’ and the weapons of his warfare are faith, truth, and justice, with these he judges and fights.

In this final great evangelization there is need of priests and bishops. There are not sufficient uncontaminated priests and bishops in the world today and so: “The armies that are in Heaven followed him (Petrus Romanus) on white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean” (Apoc19:14). They are all instructed by God and are awaiting the call to action, which action begins the Great tribulation, for Satan will put up a death wrenching fight to avoid Hell for all eternity. These heavenly bodies are waiting with great anticipation, as in this battle of the ages they will come into their final perfection, as it is written: “All these, being approved by the testimony of faith, received not the promise, God providing some better thing for us, that they should not be perfected without us” (Hb 11:39,40).

The armies that are in heaven are the Mystical Body of Christ, that is: the Church Triumphant (angels and saints in Heaven); the Church Militant (Eucharistic man in heaven on earth); are riding those ‘white horses’ (Divine Power); clothed in the ‘fine linen’ (victorious risen Christ Jesus); and “these follow the Lamb whithersoever He goes” (Apoc 14:4).

It must be added here that when fallen man was redeemed by the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ, and Eucharistic man accepted all that Jesus asked of him, and followed His precepts, then by the gift of God, it was given to this faithful man the sublime gift of Eucharistic unity in God, with the task to take back what the Devil stole from man in the first place, and return all to Jesus, Who in turn gives all to the Father (1Co 15:23-28). Jesus prayed to the Father: “I in them, and Thou (Father) in Me, that they may be made perfect in One” (Jn 17:23). This ‘One’ is Eucharistic oneness, Eucharistic man who is ‘made perfect’ in the unity of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. All is now completed in the Eternal Virgin Eucharistic Church.
