A Psalm of David.
Psalm 26 – Audio
1 Judge me, O Lord; for I have walked in mine integrity:
I have trusted also in the Lord; therefore I shall not slide.
2 Examine me, O Lord, and prove me;
try my reins (H3629= the mind) and my heart.
3 For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes:
and I have walked in thy truth.
We continue with our study of the gospel of John, and here we will learn about John Chapter 4. This chapter continues talking about Jesus’ Public Ministry.
Gospel according to John, Chapter 4: Read &/or listen from the Bible.
1/ Jesus and the Samaritan Woman (4:1-26)
2/ Doing the Father’s Will (4:27-42)
3/ Healing of the Nobleman’s Son (4:43-54)
She was 62 (1577) when wrote in less than 6 months, her book called ‘The Mansions‘ or ‘The Inner Castle‘ in obedience to an assignment given by her spiritual leaders. The first paragraph is her complaining about that. Later she saidd got the vision of a crystal globe with 7 mansions (& even more mansions) with God in the center.
The book is a guide to spiritual purification, describing the soul as a castle with 7 mansions, on the path to a mystical union/marriage with the divine ‘Majesty’ in the center or innermost mansion. She wrote that by emptying oneself of all attachments to creatures, God then comes and fills the soul with Himself, but this is Catholic doctrine about sin & purgatory, CCC #1472. At the end of the journey the soul would reach Spiritual Marriage in the 7th Mansion, the souls is free from sin & have union with God.
I published this dream on January 1st 2014 in a blog (in Spanish), but I decided to publish it here also. It is about an event that I think we may see in the very near future and I ask each reader to please seek God for confirmation & direction. I do not know with certainty the time when it will occur, but I’m posting this mainly so that believers (the Church) can intercede and prepare spiritually for things coming our way.

Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You. Psalm 119:11
When you check the doctrine of Catholic mystics you realize they didn’t understand the gospel according to the Bible (salvation by faith in Jesus sacrifice, not by works, Eph.2:8-9). But they believed their works & sacrifices were needed to ‘ascend‘ & get closer to God. Jesus Christ was not their mediator, but different ‘saints’ that they called patrons or advocates. Most of their doctrines (& even their visions) came from the traditions of the Catholic Church, not the Bible.
Gospel of John, Chapter 2:
Jesus’ Public Ministry is found in chapters 2-11 in the book of John.
1/ Changing Water into Wine (2:1-12)
2/ Cleansing the Temple (2:13-25)
About a year ago a relative showed me a couple of videos made by the Bible Project, they are short animated videos teaching the Bible and I really loved their animations, & the high quality of their presentation. After watching a few more videos, I found that the most important part, their bible teachings, have a lot of interpretation or personal opinions, not everything was biblical base. Later in another video I found they didn’t believe in hell, even this is a basic doctrine accepted by all Christians, which is denied only by sects like Jehovah Witnesses & others like them. So even a lot of ministries were using their videos as tools to teach the Bible, I stopped watching them, because after my personal experience of coming out from a system full of wrong doctrines (Catholicism), I value sound doctrine more than anything else.
