Do Not Attract Problems Already Drawn Away by God

In His Holy Gospel according to Matthew 12:43-45, Jesus gives us a lesson on spiritual safety, which also applies to nations and should never be forgotten in times of great inner disturbance:

Satan’s Strategies

43 When an impure spirit comes out of a person, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it.
44 Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’ When it arrives, it finds the house unoccupied, swept clean and put in order.”

That soul—as I wrote in A Missão dos Setenta e o “lobo invisível” [The Mission of the Seventy and the “Invisible Wolf”] (2018)—can be a man or a woman, disincarnated or not, in precarious spiritual conditions. 

45 Then it goes and takes with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go and live there. And the final condition of that person is worse than the first. That is how it will be with this wicked generation.”

God’s Charity draws away from our path all the different problems of spiritual, psychic, emotional, or material nature. Still in The Mission of the Seventy and the “Invisible Wolf,” I call the attention to the fact that our Divine Friend, Jesus, draws away the obsessing spirit from millions and millions all over the world. The obsessing spirit, in its turn, goes out repenting, but that is false repentance. Let us see what is said in verse 45: “Then it goes and takes with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself.”

This is due to the negligence over one of the crucial precepts of the Invisible World: the Law of Attraction. The connection with certain types of entities can only be harmful for us. However, if a connection is established with the Higher Spirituality Entities, our heart and our Soul will be greater, which will directly impact the spiritual, moral, social, financial, and physical health of nations.

In their wisdom, people have taught us: An idle brain is the devil’s workshop.”

And since it has no physical body, the “invisible wolf,” the obsessing spirit, wanders around the world in relative freedom, considering it will only approach someone when there is a connection of feelings and actions, when an opportunity arises, that is, it settles in the empty house that was previously cleaned by the Celestial Thaumaturge. That explains why it is important to reeducate our psychic channels in the light of the Higher Spirituality, keeping them healthy and clear, elevating our thoughts, our words, and our actions (the Triple Harmony with Jesus) to Divine Goodness, Generosity, Ecumenical Fraternity, Truth, and Justice; all in all, to the Love of Christ, summed up in the New Commandment of the Master of our lives“Love one another, as I have loved you. Only by this shall all of you be recognized as my disciples.” (The Gospel according to John 13:34-35)

We will then establish the permanent psychospiritual connection with the most sublime feelings, with our Guardian Angels, Spiritual Guides, Tutelary Deities, Blessed Souls, Luminous Spirits that can free us from that villain, so we can keep working for the Good. This is an extremely sublime lesson of Spiritual Citizenship offered to us by Christ, the Divine Statesman.

We should never forget that it is up to us not to bring back to our path all the problems God drew away from us.
