It May Bear Fruit in the Future

lord-jesusAwhile back , the angel asked me to write on the Gospels on Sundays. With Love and gratitude, here is the Gospel of Luke 13:1-9; with a loving and also an angel guided message behind it.

 

Some people told Jesus about the Galileans

whose blood Pilate had mingled with the blood of their sacrifices.

Jesus said to them in reply,

“Do you think that because these Galileans suffered in this way

they were greater sinners than all other Galileans?

By no means!

But I tell you, if you do not repent,

you will all perish as they did!

Or those eighteen people who were killed

when the tower at Siloam fell on them—

do you think they were more guilty

than everyone else who lived in Jerusalem?

By no means!

But I tell you, if you do not repent,

you will all perish as they did!”

 

And he told them this parable:

“There once was a person who had a fig tree planted in his orchard,

and when he came in search of fruit on it but found none,

he said to the gardener,

‘For three years now I have come in search of fruit on this fig tree

but have found none.

So cut it down.

Why should it exhaust the soil?’

He said to him in reply,

‘Sir, leave it for this year also,

and I shall cultivate the ground around it and fertilize it;

it may bear fruit in the future.

If not you can cut it down.’”

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

In the past, people believed that if someone suffered and ill fate, that the cause was that they had sinned, or that God was punishing them.

 

Here, Jesus is asserting two truths: those who suffer have  not necessarily sinned, but those who sin, will eventually reap what they have sown. In the first century, it was common to believe that misfortune was a sign of God’s disfavor. Jesus disputes this false notion.

 

If we want to be right with God, now is the time and the hour to do so. Twice Jesus sets the condition, ” If you do not repent.” God never tires of forgiving, but as Pope Francis reminds us, we tire of asking for forgiveness. When we fail to repent, then the consequences of our free choices fall upon us. Jesus even uses a parable to illustrate the point. In the parable, God is both the landowner and the gardener who asks for more time. The owner does not want the tree to exhaust the soil  to yet another year.  “if it does not produce” , says the gardener, “you can cut it down.” Stern as it is, even that is the final caution of Divine Love that wants no one lost and nothing, not even a fruitless tree, cast into the fire. [see reference]

 

Every tree needs regular pruning for growth and bea. Like the gardener in the parable, we too should take care to prune away what no longer serves us; remaining focused on love for God and one another , repenting if needed for spiritual growth and favor with God- asking God for foriveness  through prayer, and through Christ his Son – who will always greet us with Mercy.

Healing Relationships- with the Angel Team

Guardian angel 3

Some relationships need to be nurtured. Love one another. Relationships are blessings from God. All of them. Some are new at this time for a reason. All are blessed. Relationships need nurturing for growing. If one of your relationships needs healing, pray first and ask for healing within your heart. Ask for the highest to help. You will feel guided to communicate with love before anger. Ask to see the relationship healed. For God loves healing in any circumstance. Be a good listener, listen with compassion rather than judgement. Judgement is a fear based emotion and is from the ego. Compassion  increases healing in any circumstance. Love heals. Truth heals. Listen with love and speak peacefully and you will see your relationships healed. God , the Most High is always is willing to help and understands how you feel. If guided, seek professional counsel for your relationship. If this is a co-worker, bless them- forgive them. Trust in the Most High to guide your actions, your words and listen to the guidance of your heart in all relationships. Lift up all prayers, concerns and talk to God often who knows you, wants to help and who loves you and your loved one more than you know. Love God and love one another as you love yourself. Ask for help if needed and bless the other in all circumstances.

The Transfiguration of the Lord

8_6_transfiguration2

Awhile back, the angels asked me to dedicate Sundays to the Gospels readings for the day. With Love and gratitude here is the Gospel of Luke 9:28 B-36; with a loving angel guided message behind it. 

Jesus took Peter, John, and James
and went up the mountain to pray.
While he was praying his face changed in appearance
and his clothing became dazzling white.
And behold, two men were conversing with him, Moses and Elijah,
who appeared in glory and spoke of his exodus
that he was going to accomplish in Jerusalem.
Peter and his companions had been overcome by sleep,
but becoming fully awake,
they saw his glory and the two men standing with him.
As they were about to part from him, Peter said to Jesus,
“Master, it is good that we are here;
let us make three tents,
one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”
But he did not know what he was saying.
While he was still speaking,
a cloud came and cast a shadow over them,
and they became frightened when they entered the cloud.
Then from the cloud came a voice that said,
“This is my chosen Son; listen to him.”
After the voice had spoken, Jesus was found alone.
They fell silent and did not at that time
tell anyone what they had seen.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Jesus took 3 apostles: Peter, James and John- to the mountain to pray- which was commonly Scripture’s place for  a Divine encounter. 

As Jesus prays, his face is suddenly changed and his clothing began to radiate dazzling- with Heavenly light. Jesus is already in full communion with God the Father, when God decides to manifest his full identity. 

This scripture states that the 3 apostles were overcome by sleep, but became fully awake (through the Holy Spirit)  to witness the full glory of the Lord, and the Lord speaking to Moses and Elijah. Moses-representing the law, and Elijah- the prophets; about Jesus’ exodus. The word evokes Israel’s past deliverance from Egyptian enslavement and anticipates the freedom Jesus will win, but only through his suffering , death and resurrection and Ascension. A Heavenly Voice urges the frightened disciples to listen to Jesus- the “chosen son” for in him, the law and the prophets converge are fulfilled. The 3 disciples have glimpsed “his glory”, that is , they have beheld as part of Jesus’ own identity the splendor and wonder that only belong to God.

The transcendent moment serves to strengthen the three key disciples by declaring the Divine sonship of the one they will follow to Jerusalem.

It was fitting that Jesus should choose Peter , James and John,, strengthening them as Peter, whom Jesus has named his rock, on whom his church  would be built. James, who was to be strengthened, as he was the first of the apostles to be martyred, and John, to be strengthened, who was at the foot of the cross, and received the mother of our Lord as his own mother. [see references below]

The angels said that to us- the glory of the Lord is revealed through this passage. The Glory of God is revealed through Jesus Christ – through his suffering on the cross, we have been redeemed. For through Christ , we are risen with him-  and in full Glory, he will come again.

Jesus is the Overcomer

lord-jesus

Awhile back, the angels encouraged me to write on the Gospels for

Sundays. With love and gratitude, here is the Gospel of Luke 4:1.-13; with an angel guided message behind it.

Filled with the Holy Spirit, Jesus returned from the Jordan
and was led by the Spirit into the desert for forty days,
to be tempted by the devil.
He ate nothing during those days,
and when they were over he was hungry.
The devil said to him,
“If you are the Son of God,
command this stone to become bread.”
Jesus answered him,
“It is written, One does not live on bread alone.
Then he took him up and showed him
all the kingdoms of the world in a single instant.
The devil said to him,
“I shall give to you all this power and glory;
for it has been handed over to me,
and I may give it to whomever I wish.
All this will be yours, if you worship me.”
Jesus said to him in reply,
“It is written:
You shall worship the Lord, your God,
and him alone shall you serve.

Then he led him to Jerusalem,
made him stand on the parapet of the temple, and said to him,
“If you are the Son of God,
throw yourself down from here, for it is written:
He will command his angels concerning you, to guard you,
and:
With their hands they will support you,
lest you dash your foot against a stone.

Jesus said to him in reply,
“It also says,
You shall not put the Lord, your God, to the test.
When the devil had finished every temptation,
he departed from him for a time.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Jesus walked in the full power of the Holy Spirit. When the Lucan Jesus quotes Deuteronomy’s admonition against testing God, “God” refers to not only God the Father, but to Jesus as God’s own Son.  The enemy is toying with someone much greater than he admits.  Jesus is strengthened in His relationship with the Father. With the Word of God,  Jesus rids both himself of the tempter and steels himself for the hard work ahead. He reminds himself of what sustains us, who is really worthy of our worship and the very nature of our faith. Jesus was like us in all ways except in sin. His experience of temptation was akin to ours. [See reference}

“Jesus is the overcomer. Jesus over came death, sin , illness and temptation. Jesus is strong in all ways. Asking him to be with you in your heart, welcomes the Holy Strength of Christ himself, of God’s Holy Son- welcoming the Father who sent Him.”  The Angel Team

Love is Always Present

Guardian angel 3

 

God’s  love is abundant. Available for all at all times. Open your heart to His Love often. Open your heart to the Goodness of God; asking for His Love to overflow within your own heart. Ask for this daily. Ask in prayer by saying:

“Dear Heavenly Father, God of all that is, please send your Holy Love into my heart. Please overflow through to every cell, overflowing through every system, restoring every cell , organ and tissue to its natural state you created or better. Lifting me in love and in joy. I rejoice in you, for your glory. Amen.”

For those asking for health of body , you could alter the prayer, asking God to restore every cell to perfect abundant health .

For spiritual renewal , you could alter the prayer and ask for God’s Love to renew in you a new spirit in every cell and within your heart.

For additional Love , that of God, we recommend asking God every day. God will send His love without hesitation every time you ask.

We bless you dear child of God, and we lift you . Restoring you to your natural state of joy, love and peace. For you blessed and we love you. 

Love is always present and available to you. And so it is beloved, amen , amen, amen.

Trust the Guidance in Your Heart

St. Gabriel 2

Listen to the heart when it tells you to take action. This is an action step guided by God himself. When the heart presses upon you over and over again,   the same message , and the answer brings you peace, this is a sign from God that God is guiding you to take action now. Without hesitancy, this action step should be followed. Time is of the essence in some cases. This does not mean to hurry or be frantic. On the contrary, but to act swiftly as you are guided within your heart. There is no reason for concern beloved, but know how much God loves you , and that your peace is being helped by God himself. And that no one on Earth , nor in Heaven , can take that away from you or your loved ones. You are loved and are being helped by God. 

Open your heart to God, make amends with others, listen for guidance you receive, give thanks to God Himself for all He has done. Love one another. For He loves you with Great Measure.
