Message given to Nancy Fowler at Conyers, Ga on 2/22/91, by Jesus: “Let me teach you about the Fourth Commandment of God. Honor your Father and Mother. Your Father is God. Honor Him First. Your mother is My Mother, the Holy Mother of God; I give her to you as your Loving Mother. You will never have a greater Father than God nor a greater mother than the Mother of God. Earthly parents are called to imitate Us, to be Our hands, feet, heart. You are not to judge the shortcomings of your father and mother. And parents, you are not to judge the shortcomings of your children. Both are called to love as We love you. Grow more in love with God and with each other…:”
Message given to Nancy Fowler on 2/13/91 by our Blessed Mother: “I will give a message for the United States. My dear children of America, as your loving mother, I would like to teach you. Live a life not of the flesh. Live a life of the soul. Your flesh will return to ashes. The life of your soul is forever. Repent and come back to God. Your salvation depends upon this. “
Growing up, I had two wonderful parents that taught us four girls respect for God, the Blessed Mother, our parents and others. I can remember being about four-years-old and getting tucked into bed at night by my mother. I was the oldest and at the time had one baby sister. Every night my mother would tuck me in bed and we would say good night prayers. My first prayer was: “Now I lay me down to sleep. I pray the Lord my soul to keep. If I die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take. God Bless mommy and daddy, Sherry, and Debra, and God let Sherry and Debra be good little girls. Amen. ” We said these prayers so many times, I often found myself even as a teenager lying in bed at night praying that my sisters and I “be good little girls!”
So from a very young age, I was taught about God, my soul, heaven, and life and death. That prayer is no longer taught to kids; or a watered down version is taught. It was believed that the prayer was too scary. What’s wrong with children knowing the truth? Life here does end and our soul’s future will be determined by God, Our Father. Parents must teach their children respect. If everyone on this planet had respect for each other – what a different world it would be!
Sirach 3: “Children, listen to me: I am your father. Do what I tell you and you will be safe, for the Lord has given fathers authority over their children and given children the obligation to obey their mothers. If you respect your father, you can make up for our sins, and if you honor your mother, you are earning great wealth. If you respect your father, one day your own children will make you happy; the Lord will hear your prayers.”
Our children are the future of our communities, churches, and world. We as parents have a huge responsibility given to us by God to teach them the faith. Do not water down your faith. For it is in knowing our limits and weaknesses that we can truly understand and appreciate God’s Gifts and God’s Mercy.
