Peace I Leave With You; My Peace I Give To You
Awhile back, the angels asked me to dedicate Sundays to the Gospels. Here is a loving message from the Gospel of John 14:23-29 with a loving Angel guided message behind it.
Jesus said to his disciples:
“Whoever loves me will keep my word,
and my Father will love him,
and we will come to him and make our dwelling with him.
Whoever does not love me does not keep my words;
yet the word you hear is not mine
but that of the Father who sent me.
“I have told you this while I am with you.
The Advocate, the Holy Spirit,
whom the Father will send in my name,
will teach you everything
and remind you of all that I told you.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.
Not as the world gives do I give it to you.
Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.
You heard me tell you,
‘I am going away and I will come back to you.’
If you loved me,
you would rejoice that I am going to the Father;
for the Father is greater than I.
And now I have told you this before it happens,
so that when it happens you may believe.”
Jesus’ words are eternal.The angels say this about Jesus’ Words: “They are not just “good guidance”, they are the words of Everlasting Life” – and will stand throughout time.
Jesus here, is the first advocate of the disciples, teaching and mentoring them, freeing them of falsehoods, fears and biases. Now Jesus is about to surrender his life as this is his last meal with them. He is again, announcing that He is going to be with The Father. Jesus assures them they will lose nothing because another advocate, “The Holy Spirit”, will help them remember and understand all that Jesus taught them. Jesus equates love with keeping His Word . Anyone who keeps His Word receives the Father’s Love and becomes a living Tabernacle, a place where God can dwell. Those who do not keep His Word, do not love Him , because by rejecting the Word they reject the Father, who is the source of all that Jesus says. [see reference]
Jesus affirms that The Father is Greater than he, and affirms that The Peace that flows from the Heavenly Father and from Christ Jesus flows without measure and dwells within us. Jesus gives us His Divine Peace. This can never be taken away as He gives ” not as the world gives” but as the Father gives. The Peace of Christ is eternal and overflowing; and the Word and the Peace His gives- are all from God the Father in Heaven.

Trust the Guidance in Your Heart
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.

No Prophet Is Accepted in His Own Native Place
Awhile back, the angels asked me to dedicate Sundays to the Gospels. With Love and Gratitude, here is the Gospel of Luke 4:21-30
Jesus began speaking in the synagogue, saying:
“Today this Scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing.”
And all spoke highly of him
and were amazed at the gracious words that came from his mouth.
They also asked, “Isn’t this the son of Joseph?”
He said to them, “Surely you will quote me this proverb,
‘Physician, cure yourself,’ and say,
‘Do here in your native place
the things that we heard were done in Capernaum.’”
And he said, “Amen, I say to you,
no prophet is accepted in his own native place.
Indeed, I tell you,
there were many widows in Israel in the days of Elijah
when the sky was closed for three and a half years
and a severe famine spread over the entire land.
It was to none of these that Elijah was sent,
but only to a widow in Zarephath in the land of Sidon.
Again, there were many lepers in Israel
during the time of Elisha the prophet;
yet not one of them was cleansed, but only Naaman the Syrian.”
When the people in the synagogue heard this,
they were all filled with fury.
They rose up, drove him out of the town,
and led him to the brow of the hill
on which their town had been built,
to hurl him down headlong.
But Jesus passed through the midst of them and went away.
The angels said that Jesus was rejected by his own hometown.
Jesus is home, led there by the Spirit, and he has just proclaimed an Isaian text declaring the release to prisoners and sight to the blind. But his own neighbors will suffer a peculiar kind of blindness that afflicts those who have lived alongside the fountain of truth without drinking deep from its refreshing waters. They respond well, glowingly in fact, to his initial utterance. Luke tells us they ” were amazed” and commented on his gracious words. But he also gives us a clue that acquits Jesus of intentionally provoking his neighbors with inflammatory words about the thick blood of their ancestors running in their own veins.
They also asked, “isn’t this the son of Joseph?” Luke tells us. That’s all Jesus needed to read their hearts. Already some of them are wondering how a hometown boy can be so smart. After all, they have known him and his family. He has been away and now comes home with insight and authority beyond his stature. How could he suggest that Isaiah’s words were, now being fulfilled? Perhaps Luke is preparing for us the inevitable and showing us, through adulation turned to violence, what will be the pattern of Jesus’ ministry. What happens in his hometown will be repeated in Jerusalem.
Because the liberation that Jesus was to bring would not be what his people expected, Jesus already understands that his people will not satisfy many. They seek signs and wonders, but not the truth that is within him. They are not willing to believe that he could be who he has suggested he is. So Jesus confronts them and cites two prophets who, because their message was rejected by their own people, took their ministry to the gentiles. And like a match tossed among tumbleweeds, Jesus’ words ignite their passions and drive them from their midst. An ancient pattern is repeated and another prophet knows the burden of bearing God’s word. [see reference below]

THE WEDDING AT CANA
Awhile back, the angels encouraged me to write on the Gospels on Sundays. With love and gratitude, here the Gospel of John 2:1-11 with a loving angel guided message behind it.
There was a wedding at Cana in Galilee,
and the mother of Jesus was there.
Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the wedding.
When the wine ran short,
the mother of Jesus said to him,
“They have no wine.”
And Jesus said to her,
“Woman, how does your concern affect me?
My hour has not yet come.”
His mother said to the servers,
“Do whatever he tells you.”
Now there were six stone water jars there for Jewish ceremonial washings,
each holding twenty to thirty gallons.
Jesus told them,
“Fill the jars with water.”
So they filled them to the brim.
Then he told them,
“Draw some out now and take it to the headwaiter.”
So they took it.
And when the headwaiter tasted the water that had become wine,
without knowing where it came from
— although the servers who had drawn the water knew —,
the headwaiter called the bridegroom and said to him,
“Everyone serves good wine first,
and then when people have drunk freely, an inferior one;
but you have kept the good wine until now.”
Jesus did this as the beginning of his signs at Cana in Galilee
and so revealed his glory,
and his disciples began to believe in him.
Today’s Gospel reading shows the beginning of Jesus ‘ public ministry and another revelation of the Glory of God/Jesus.
The Mother of Jesus, who was in attendance at this wedding, along with Jesus disciples, had asked Jesus to assist the celebration of the wedding, and asked the waiters to “do whatever he tells you.” This is also an example to us that Mary is still recognized as the Mother of Jesus, who is also someone we can all go to, for her prayer to her Son, and her instruction is simple: “Do whatever he tells you.” She fully understands her Son – whereas the disciples, upon journeying with Christ , had just began to believe in him. Our journeys with Christ, should reflect the same: Believing in him and acting on his Word; as his words bring everlasting life, miracles and the True Word of God.
God’s hands makes everything perfect. The wine was superior as is all things created by God’s Hands, as God and Jesus are One.
Jesus brings us salvation, everlasting life , the new covenant, and much rejoicing in the Spirit, Goodness of the Love and Goodness of God himself.

Breathe deeply and ask the angels to help you lift away any worry, stress, or fatigue you may be carrying unknowingly.
