Man No Longer Calls Sin, Sin
Jesus said to Nancy, “Man no longer calls sin, ‘sin’. Man no longer knows Me. Man no longer seeks Me and desires Me. Man does not believe I am God.”
Nancy has said that she was walking very much in the world in the early 1980’s. Her career was important. She even took a weekend nursing job for extra money that prevented her from going to Sunday Mass. She rationalized that this sin was not a sin because now she had to work on Sunday. Even a priest advised her that she could go to Mass on another day. She had desired to achieve worldly success and the things this success could provide. She now prayed less and less and desired God less.
She began to question the words of God. She questioned such things as the existence of Hell. Then God showed her where she was walking. Nancy experienced what she calls “night terrors.”
She was allowed to see the kingdom of Satan, the kingdom of darkness. She could not sleep much for months until she made a good, general confession. Then there was a noticeable improvement after the Sacrament of Reconciliation and using the name of Jesus. The “night terrors” ceased.
Do we have to be shown the darkness of sin we are choosing and suffer the consequences of being purified? Do we have to wake up to the reality of suffering and death, which are the consequences of sin before we can believe God and return to Him?
Jesus said three times in a row, “You are ignoring My blood.” At the Last Supper Jesus said in Luke 22:20, “This cup which is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.” If we are ignoring His blood, are we not ignoring “the new covenant in my blood,”? What happened when the Jews ignored the covenant in the Old Testament?
