On Sundays, when I first began writing Daily Angel Messages, the angels encouraged me to write on the Gospel for that day. With love and gratitude, here is the gospel reading from today with a guided loving message behind it. Gospel of MARK 6:1-6
Jesus departed from there and came to his native place, accompanied by his disciples. When the Sabbath came he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were astonished.
They said, “Where did this man get all this? What kind of Wisdom has been given him? What mighty deeds are wrought by his hands! Is he not the carpenter, son of Mary, and the brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon? And are not his sisters here with us?” And they took offense at him.
Jesus said to them, ” A prophet is not without honor except in his native place and among his own kin and in his own house”
So he was not able to perform any mighty deed there there, apart from curing a few sick people by laying his hands on them.
He was amazed at their lack of faith.
This was the beginning of Jesus’ Galilean ministry. Jesus came to bring the Good News to his native land, teaching in their synagogue. These were people Jesus loved, and they rejected him and his teaching (because they couldn’t believe that he was a prophet, or that he was the True Son of God.) The angels say this will be the reason many will ask for forgiveness. Additionally, in that time period, they used a word which through the The Greek translation from the Hebrew Bible also translates the word “brother” as cousin or or family or half brother or half sister. (See John 19:25 & MARK 15:40)
God did not put them to the test, Jesus loved them and wanted to help bring spiritual awareness, but this is what they rejected. Jesus was amazed at their lack of faith because these were Jesus’ friends. God still showed them mercy and allowed Jesus to heal their sick. For God was still with them and showed He loved them, through his mercy and grace. Even though God or Jesus do not favor ridicule, God did not punish them. Jesus wanted to help heal through compassion, for they knew not what they were saying. God and Jesus require faith when you come before them. Knowing that Jesus is the true Glorified Son of God, and that God rewards those who seek Him in faith. Miracles and wondrous deeds are the true nature of God, which are God’s Spiritual Truth revealed in the physical- the Earth Plane. For nothing is impossible for God. Ask God for a miracle if needed, ask for healing, ask for faith if needed. Ask in faith , believing His Son can help, believing that nothing is impossible for God and for Jesus His Son, who has authority still over God’s Kingdom, eternally.
