(ERRATA: The below article has been corrected in
the following way: 1) The 2009 prayer received by Vassula was from "the Lord"
and not "our Lady". 2) The message Vassula received from "our Lady"
was in 2008 and not 2009. Corrected on May 7, 2010)
an open letter dated April 24 and published in her official website with the title Iceland Volcano,
Meteor in USA and Prophecy update and Explanation from Vassula, the seer
claims that both the eruption of the Eyjafjallajokull volcano and the US Midwest meteor
sighting were predicted in her True Life in God
(TLIG) messages and their effect diminished through a prayer given to her by "the
Lord" in 2009 to be said in Rydens prayer groups. (In 2007, the Vatican advised
against the participation of the faithful in those groups.) The seer also says that if
ecclesiastic authorities continue forbidding
God to speak and
advise the faithful not to listen either, forbidding
them to attend to meetings of TLIG and thus preventing them from kowing Gods
will, people will not convert
and then the chastisement by fire
will be terrible.
knew about this meteorite heading close to earth,
and that is why she was given a prayer in November 28, 2009 mentioning a star at the horizon. She believes it
was a bargaining prayer (she
compares it to Abrahams bargaining for the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah) that diminished
Gods wrath and
spared the US Midwest from disaster and mitigated the effect of the volcanic eruption in Iceland.
Ryden reminds her readers that her messages had also predicted 9/11 and the 2004 tsunami.
The reason for these disasters - and those to come - is the worlds rejection of God.
would God, so loving, some people would say, do this to us? The Lord Jesus replied when
this question was put to Him by me: If
you die, it is because of your apostasy.
Lord is warning us that, because of our apostasy, we are endangering the cosmos not
only the earth, but the entire cosmos, provoking nature to rebel against us. (
referring to the message she received from our Lady in 2008, Vassula explains:
Our Lady said that the earth is in danger and will
suffer with fire. Gods wrath cannot be sustained any longer and it will fall on them
because man refuses to break with sin. (
) The time has come where the household of
God will be tested and those who refused His Mercy will taste Gods Fire. I asked her
about the people of the Church who persecute us and are blind to His Words of Mercy [=
the TLIG messages]. Our Lady said that these too
will undergo what they deserve.(
Lady said that] those who truly love
God are blessed and should not fear in those days. (
) that She
is pleased will all the priests (the clergy) who share and promote those
Works of God - as those of True
Life in God and who are open to the
Spirit - and should remain confident because they received special graces from the Spirit
of God and that through the Spirit they grew stronger in the Lord and to His plan of
salvation. That Christ grants them His peace.
Ryden believes that Jesus has given her the
mission to pass on to the world the Word of
God as it is revealed to her in the True Life in God messages. She writes:
ecclesiastics are forbidding God to speak to His people as He does now, and advise the
faithful not to listen either, forbidding them to attend to meetings of TLIG and thus
preventing them from knowing Gods Will. They are not better than Jesus
disciples in their disbelief. When Christ resurrected and appeared to the
Eleven, the Bible says (Mk 16, 14-15) while they were at table, He reproached
them for their incredulity and obstinacy, because they had refused to believe those who
had seen Him after He had risen.
is a mild reproach compared to a prior letter of January 10,
2002 where Vassula accused those who openly criticize TLIG of being guilty
of mortal sin and of sin against the Holy Spirit, quoting Jesus as saying
that they are the enemies of the whole human
race and that Justice
will send them down to the underwold.
latest letter ends with an extract of the TLIG message of February 13, 1993 where Jesus
explains what he will do to us if we dont convert:
sixth seal is about to be broken and you will all be plunged into darkness (
) out of
My Cup of Justice I
will make you ressemble snakes; vipers. I
will make you crawl on your belly and eat dust
in these days of darkness; I
will crush you to the ground to remind you that you are not better than
you will suffocate and stifle in your sins; in
My anger I will tread you down, trample you in My wrath! (
when My wrath will be appeased, I will set My Throne in each one of you and together with
one voice and one heart and one language you will praise Me, the Lamb.
is Vassula Ryden?
Ryden started to write down messages in 1985, when she was contacted by her guardian
angel Daniel who manifested itself by moving
Vassulas hand outside of her own control forming words and drawings.
The angel was later replaced by Jesus, who through the same means started to
write down messages, which he told Vassula to call True Life in God.
messages are written in a
handwriting different from Vassula's normal one
and called "hieratic", sacred or holy by her supporters.
Several experts in spiritism and New Age (Fr. Mitch Pacwa, Fr. François-Marie Dermine,
Ingerlise Provstgaard, Marie-France James) have identified it as automatic writing,
although Vassula categorically denies it. The content of the messages is religious, a sort
of revival of biblical texts and teachings from the Catholic and Orthodox Churches, with a
tendency towards apocaliptic
themes and prophecies.
has tried since the beginning to obtain approval from the Catholic Church (although she
declares herself Greek Orthodox). In fact, the majority of her followers, including
clergy, are Roman Catholics. Both the Catholic
and Greek Orthodox Churches have issued serious warnings regarding her
writings and activities, but nevertheless she counts on the support
of a few high-ranking clergy, which is enough for her followers to believe her
claim that the Pope supports her but that there is a conspiracy against her in the Vatican
responsible for the negative documents issued regarding her messages and activities.
lack of recognition from ecclesiastic authorities and the criticism voiced by observers
and ex-followers, have been interpretated by Vassulas supporters as a repetition
of history: present Church authorities do not recognize Jesus speaking
through Vassula, as 2000 years ago Jews did not recognize Jesus as the Messiah. Therefore
clergy [sic] and lay followers are the new
apostles who are called by Christ to evangelize
the TLIG messages. A long-time follower described her as one of Gods great
Prophets, comparable with the Prophets of the Old Testament. The prophecy of the True Life
in God messages is not an optional extra.
This treasure from God is one of God's great gifts to mankind. If rejected, it really does
seem to me to amount to the unforgivable rejection of the Holy Spirit (http://www.tlig.net/newphpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=1576&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=16
