3 – Reverence for the Word of God

3. From the Book of Exodus

Fancy letter The Lord said to Moses, “Chisel out two stone tablets like the first ones, and I will write on them the words that were on the first tablets, which you broke. Be ready in the morning, and then come up on Mount Sinai. Present yourself to Me there on top of the mountain. No one is to come with you or be seen anywhere on the mountain; not even the flocks and herds may graze in front of the mountain.” So Moses chiseled out two stone tablets like the first ones and went up Mount Sinai early in the morning, as the Lord had commanded him; and he carried the two stone tablets in his hands.

Ex 34, 1-4


3. Reverence for the Word of God


God the Father:  Write My words for you and for all those reading My Name. When I established a covenant with Israel, I offered him My instruction – the Words of the Covenant and I wrote them down as the Word on stone tablets. The Word was again written down by Moses after he smashed the first tablets at the sight of the betrayal of the entire people. This Word that I have spoken was contained on tablets, which were recognized as the most sacred item and later stored in the Ark of the Covenant by Israelites through all generations. These tablets were venerated as evidence of the Covenant that I have established with Israel, but above all as My Word. The Word, which was spoken by My lips and which was supposed to remain eternally alive in the hearts of Israelites. The Israelites could keep it in their hearts, but they did not possess their own tablets, which they could read and remind themselves of the words they contained every day. This Word was only read by selected people at the time of great feasts. The Israelites treated it as the most holy item, as though God Himself.

I evoke this image today to show you the truth about My Word. My Word is the most holy item, because I Myself am present in it. Through all the generations that were born on Earth, I was coming to mankind in the Word, in order to instruct it and accompany it in this journey. The prophets, whom I have chosen, were as though the finger of God, with which I was tracing the Words for Israel. The same finger that wrote the Words on the stone tablets the first time. However, by leading mankind from an instinctive and pictorial understanding to a rational and spiritual understanding, I slowly hid Myself from the eyes of mankind to open its spiritual eyes. So I began to write My Word through the chosen tools of My Providence, Divine pens that I was creating and filling with My Spirit like with ink, and I wrote with them on the pages of history of all human generations.

The Holy Scriptures are My stone tablet, carved with My Spirit, burning the Words of God on the face of the world. It is the most sacred item, which must be worshiped as Myself, because I am present in My word. I am not present in it in real terms with the Body and Blood like in the most holy Sacramental Forms, but I am present in the Spirit. It means that the Holy Scriptures are the most holy book and it should be treated as such. Today, this holy book of My presence is available to all of you. You can read My Words every day and experience My blessing in your homes. Do you, however, believe that I am truly present in this Word? If you truly believed that I am present in the Word, would you put the Holy Scriptures on the ground like something that is walked upon? Would you allow it to be covered with dust and dirt? Would you not store it in a safe place so that it would not be used by children to play? Would you put other items upon it as if it were nothing? Do you truly believe that I am present in the Word? Your Holy Scriptures are truly an image of your faith. The fact that you can possess Me through My Word is a great grace and a great sacrifice bore for you, because as in the Holy Forms I desire to be present in the Church and such I give Myself to you hidden in the form of Bread in all the Tabernacles of the world, in the same way I desire to be present in your homes through My Word, even though I am not adequately worshiped in it.

My word is alive and holy. My word penetrates the minds and the hearts of men by the means of the Holy Spirit, performing miracles in the world that is visible to you. Respect My Word. Do not let it be treated as inscriptions on paper, which are human signs. They are not human but divine signs, because they were traced by the Spirit Himself, who acts through the Word. Show Me your faith by respecting My Word, every Word, that I have spoken to you. Amen.
