The Will of God - How do we know what it is?
What exactly is the will of God?
How is the person who wants to live in
tune with God able to know what the will of God is?
These questions are of such universal and crucial importance at
time that we feel the urgent need to address them for the benefit of
the Faithful at large.
What exactly is the will of God?
The will of God may be understood as His desire, wish and/or preference
of how some event and/or situation should evolve for the benefit of all.
What has been confusing, up to now, is the not knowing that there are
essentially two manifestations of the Will of God. We have defined
these two manifestations as "Passive"
and "Active" so that the
may be understood in human terms.
The Passive Will of God
manifests itself when God allows
that is not His
preference, to take place.
The faithful must remember
that nothing takes place in the entire Universe unless God allows it.
Even satan's action is subject to this condition – which is why we have
repeatedly stated that satan has to serve God whether he wants it or
not since God utilizes him to dispense Divine Justice. [1 Tim
Rev. 13:5-8 ]
If an individual is determined to do "this" or "that" which is not in
accordance to the Active Will of God,
He may allow it (Passive) so that
the individual learns a lesson and returns to the right path – a path
that will minimize the harm his soul is exposed to and which,
ultimately, should be: Truly
desiring to fulfill the Active Will of God
with every breath we take.
The negative, but temporary, consequences of the Lesson allowed by God
will increase in
severity until finally, the individual responds in the
way he should, ultimately for his benefit. This is what we frequently
is the megaphone which God uses for the deaf to hear."
Anything secured through the Passive
Will of God will
have a price.
God has a specific plan for each individual who is born in Time. By
fulfilling such plan, the life of that incarnated soul will be as happy
and fulfilling as is possible —for
that particular soul—
through this world.
Each action that we take in accordance to the
Active Will of God will be
very constructive and draw the individual
closer to what God intended him/her to be in this world. The net
feeling/result will always be good because, if even whatever happened
to be the Active Will of God involves suffering, the suffering will be
accompanied by His indescribable and blissful consolation. (1)
Through such dynamic what is manifested is: To be a (willful) "slave"
of God which affords humans total
and safe freedom and essentially
carefree joy. This is humanly impossible to understand but it can be
Anything secured through the Active Will of God will not
have a price.
How is the person who wants to live in tune with God
able to know
what His Will is?
It is truly simple.
Firstly – Know that God can and
does read our hearts; nothing is hidden
from Him. Therefore, if in your heart you truly want to live in tune
with God, ask Him and He will immediately set in motion all that is
necessary so that your (and His!) desire becomes a reality. (A "burning
desire" is not sufficient for God to act. He requires a conscious
request to that effect.)
Secondly – Understand how God guides us, which also is, quite simple.
He guides us by means of Opening and Closing "Doors." The faithful must
start moving in the direction inspired by God and should allow Him to
"operate" the doors.
As you journey with your heart aflame in desire to fulfill His Will,
you will find some doors open; go through them! You will also find some
closed doors, then, do not
try to force them open because He may open
them for you through His Passive Will,
that is, with a price affixed to
A door that you went through yesterday, because it was open, may be
closed today, therefore, do not try to go through it today even if it
was fine with Him yesterday. The reverse could be true and your actions
should be the same. Just "go with God's flow". Isn't that what Jesus
Organized religion may have had, until today, its foot on your neck by
having stripped you of the right to exercise the ultimate gift God gave
humans – the Free Will. Do not allow it!
Guided/inspired discipline is very important and necessary, but imposed
discipline with the underlying intent to manipulate a soul is not of
God. Strive to love God more, and as your love for Him increases, a
natural and healthy self imposed discipline will bloom from the very
center of your soul which, in turn, will Glorify God. Your actions will
then become regulated by Love and
not by Fear.
Do you think that we are wrong in this? Think again! Do you believe in
the Holy Spirit of God? Do you believe that the function of the Holy
Spirit of God is to guide all of His children or to just a handful of
men who will tell you what to do under the threat of the
Of course, humans need assistance in the discerning of the spirits, but
one thing is to be assisted and another is being told that: "What the
Holy Spirit of God wants you to do is 'this' and 'that'." (3)
Brethren, if "they really knew what the Holy Spirit of God wanted" the
world would not be at the edge of the abyss and Jesus would not have
sent His Mother so many times since 1835. They should be ashamed of
that, but instead, they transgress against God further by materially
profiting from Her Holy warnings, warnings meant for them (4)
who were enslaving humanity with the yoke of guilt.
If the faithful had been properly Evangelized and assisted in the
discernment of spirits (as dear St. John Bosco taught his children (5))
the world would be a completely different and truly joyful place
because... God is really Almighty and all is possible for Him but....
do things His way to open the
doors of Paradise while still on
Determining how close you are living
with and in God
Quite simple too. You can determine your progress by how you feel when
you run into a Closed Door as compared to when faced with an Opened
Door. The goal should
be to feel as joyful when faced with a Closed
Door as one feels when faced with an Opened Door since, with either, we
then sense the loving and protective presence of God.
We realize how simplistic the above may appear to the reader but, dear
ones, Heavenly matters are truly simple (7) for
those who have Ears to Hear but extremely complicated for the rest.
It is obvious that those who had been charged with the Evangelization (3)
of the world concluded that it was better to keep the faithful in the
dark than give them the Light. Perhaps they reasoned that in such
manner the children of God could be manipulated better and, thus,
protect them from themselves. Therefore, the most simple, joyful and
freeing Messianic messages delivered by Our Lord Jesus Christ in Person
were made as complex and incomprehensible as possible to keep God's
children under the "protective" thumbs of the despotic version of
Remember! The function of organized religion is to assist humanity in
its journey to full union with God AND NOT to impede it as it has done
for centuries. A behavior for which our Lord Jesus Christ also accused
the Religious Leaders of His time.
to you scribes and Pharisees,
hypocrites; because you go round
about the sea and the land to make one proselyte; and when he is made,
you make him the child of hell twofold more than yourselves. [Matthew
To witness and fully understand how God intended His Evangelization to
be carried out, read some of the original biographies of St. John
Bosco. We promise you – your heart will sing with joy and your praises
to God will resonate to the furthest corners of Heaven.
This is why we keep repeating: the Faith (8) is
not —and has never been—
the problem. The problem has always been the
