8 – Sacred objects and secular objects

8. From the Book of LEVITICUS

Fancy letter Then the Lord said to Aaron, “You and your sons are not to drink wine or other fermented drink whenever you go into the Tent of Meeting, or you will die. This is a lasting ordinance for the generations to come, so that you can distinguish between the holy and the common, between the unclean and the clean, and so you can teach the Israelites all the decrees the Lord has given them through Moses.”

lEv 10, 8-11


8. Sacred objects and secular objects


God the Father:  Today, I want to show to you a division that should never be ignored. It is very important. It is the division into secular objects and sacred objects. All objects that are intended for God, made for the service of the Church, and especially those intended for the glory of God as elements used in the celebration of liturgical activities, are sacred. Using them for secular purposes causes their desecration and is a sin of pride. Not only you are not allowed under any circumstances to drink from the chalice intended for the liturgy, because it is exclusively dedicated to the celebration of the highest Sacrifice and only the priest is entitled to use it, but also you are not allowed to burn for yourselves candles intended to and sanctified on My Altar, or burn incense intended for Me for your own pleasure, or use liturgical garments for any secular purpose. Everything that is supposed to serve Me should only serve Me. It means that you must not use the same objects for sacred and secular activities. Objects intended for the service at the Altar cannot be used either earlier or later for other things. Even the candles that you light on My Altar should be lit using a different fire than the one, with which you light a fire in your home, or a campfire for your joy. One should explicitly separate sacred objects, that is, those which are intended to perform activities at the Altar or the celebration of sacraments for My glory. The knife, with which you touch sacred objects, cannot later serve to prepare your meals. It is a lack of respect for the Altar and a lack of faith in the holiness of the liturgy.

There are objects that are intended for Me from the very beginning and are made for My glory. These objects, even if they were not blessed, are intended for Me, because they were made with such intention. Thus, the use of liturgical vessels, garments, incense, candles, tablecloths, censers or other items related to the liturgy for other purposes than those, for which they were made, is evil in My eyes. Taking away objects made and intended for Me for other purposes is the equivalent of making a sacrifice to another god, and most often a great pride, in which man worships himself, using My sacred objects for his own comfort and pleasure.

Sacred objects that have been damaged, and are no longer suitable for use for My glory, must be burnt or worthily kept as relics. They can also be buried in the ground. However, they must not be sold under any circumstances with the goal of melting them down and using for lay purposes. Even items serving to maintain order in the holy place should be used exclusively in that place. You must not take home flowers from the Altar to rejoice in their fragrance. They are already holy and belong exclusively to God, in order to bring Him glory with their scent.

All sacred objects also require particular treatment. They must be kept clean and in order. They should not be placed on the ground, unless such is their place intended by the liturgy, nor should they be kept in store with secular objects. They should be stored with other sacred objects as My exclusive property. This is all for today. I bless you in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
