“For Whoever is Not Against Us is For Us…”

Jesus 2

The angels asked me to dedicate Sundays to the Gospels. With Love and gratitude, here is Gospel of Mark 9:38-43,54,47-48  MK 9:38-43, 45, 47-48

At that time, John said to Jesus,
“Teacher, we saw someone driving out demons in your name,
and we tried to prevent him because he does not follow us.”
Jesus replied, “Do not prevent him.
There is no one who performs a mighty deed in my name
who can at the same time speak ill of me.
For whoever is not against us is for us.
Anyone who gives you a cup of water to drink
because you belong to Christ, 
amen, I say to you, will surely not lose his reward.

“Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin,
it would be better for him if a great millstone
were put around his neck
and he were thrown into the sea.
If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off.
It is better for you to enter into life maimed
than with two hands to go into Gehenna,
into the unquenchable fire.
And if your foot causes you to sin, cut if off.
It is better for you to enter into life crippled
than with two feet to be thrown into Gehenna.
And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out.
Better for you to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye
than with two eyes to be thrown into Gehenna,
where ‘their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.'”

Jesus welcomes everyone to him, and asks us to ask for him always; and to come before the Heavenly Father in his name for anything. This goes for anyone and any belief, race, walk, or religion- in this Jesus shows no partiality for those who call upon or ask in his name. He only asks us to trust in him, as we trust in the Heavenly Father; to love the Father as he does and to love each other as he loves us. His Peace and Love is available for everyone who asks of him. 

Additionally included, in the physical, there are times when a foot or a leg must be cut off from the body to ensure the health of a physical body. Jesus adds that it would better to cut off a member of the body that causes sin, than to go into the unquenchable fire. It would be far easier to cut any sin from our midst or lifestyle – than it would be to dismember a body part. Yet Jesus is stressing the absolute Truth that sin must be cut off. It is through Jesus that we are reconciled to the Heavenly Father, who suffered greatly so that we can be reconciled upon immediate and holy repentance to the Heavenly Father, who loves us;  and wants us to come to Him for immediate reconciliation. We can trust in His Perfect and Divine Mercy.

“Daughter, Your Faith Has Saved You”

Awhile back, the angels asked me to dedicate Sundays  to the Gospels. With love and gratitude. here is the Gospel of Mark 5:21-43. MK 5:21-43

Jesus

When Jesus had crossed again in the boat
to the other side,
a large crowd gathered around him, and he stayed close to the sea.
One of the synagogue officials, named Jairus, came forward.
Seeing him he fell at his feet and pleaded earnestly with him, saying,
“My daughter is at the point of death.
Please, come lay your hands on her
that she may get well and live.”
He went off with him,
and a large crowd followed him and pressed upon him.

There was a woman afflicted with hemorrhages for twelve years.
She had suffered greatly at the hands of many doctors
and had spent all that she had.
Yet she was not helped but only grew worse.
She had heard about Jesus and came up behind him in the crowd
and touched his cloak.
She said, “If I but touch his clothes, I shall be cured.”
Immediately her flow of blood dried up.
She felt in her body that she was healed of her affliction.
Jesus, aware at once that power had gone out from him,
turned around in the crowd and asked, “Who has touched my clothes?”
But his disciples said to Jesus,
“You see how the crowd is pressing upon you,
and yet you ask, ‘Who touched me?'”
And he looked around to see who had done it.
The woman, realizing what had happened to her,
approached in fear and trembling.
She fell down before Jesus and told him the whole truth.
He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has saved you.
Go in peace and be cured of your affliction.”

While he was still speaking,
people from the synagogue official’s house arrived and said,
“Your daughter has died; why trouble the teacher any longer?” 
Disregarding the message that was reported,
Jesus said to the synagogue official,
“Do not be afraid; just have faith.”
He did not allow anyone to accompany him inside
except Peter, James, and John, the brother of James.
When they arrived at the house of the synagogue official,
he caught sight of a commotion,
people weeping and wailing loudly.
So he went in and said to them,
“Why this commotion and weeping?
The child is not dead but asleep.”
And they ridiculed him.
Then he put them all out.
He took along the child’s father and mother
and those who were with him
and entered the room where the child was.
He took the child by the hand and said to her, “Talitha koum,”
which means, “Little girl, I say to you, arise!”
The girl, a child of twelve, arose immediately and walked around.
At that they were utterly astounded.
He gave strict orders that no one should know this
and said that she should be given something to eat.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Two of Jesus’ miracles are here, one being interrupted by the other, however both had the common denominator of faith. Many people were pressing on Jesus that day, and with the crowd so great, Jesus could still feel the faith of the woman who touched his cloak to be healed. Jesus can heal anything as this is the Father’s Will – and Jesus’ Authority given to Him from the Father. 

Nothing is impossible for God and nothing is beyond His son , Jesus Christ who raises people from the dead, who gives equality to all who believe in Him and follow His Word: man, woman, child, Jew, Christian, Buddhist, black, white- even those who previously did not believe- etc. Jesus’ compassion, mercy, and healing are beyond any limit and trusting in Him and Father goes hand in hand with our faith of asking the Lord for His Divine Assistance in our own daily lives.

“To What Shall We Compare the Kingdom of God”

lord-jesus

Awhile back, the angels asked me to dedicate Sundays to the Gospels. WIth Love and gratitude, here is the Gospel of Mark 4:26-34. MK 4:26-34

Jesus said to the crowds:
“This is how it is with the kingdom of God;
it is as if a man were to scatter seed on the land
and would sleep and rise night and day
and through it all the seed would sprout and grow,
he knows not how.
Of its own accord the land yields fruit,
first the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear.
And when the grain is ripe, he wields the sickle at once,
for the harvest has come.”

He said,
“To what shall we compare the kingdom of God,
or what parable can we use for it?
It is like a mustard seed that, when it is sown in the ground,
is the smallest of all the seeds on the earth.
But once it is sown, it springs up and becomes the largest of plants
and puts forth large branches,
so that the birds of the sky can dwell in its shade.”
With many such parables
he spoke the word to them as they were able to understand it.
Without parables he did not speak to them,
but to his own disciples he explained everything in private.

Jesus is speaking of the bounty of God and God’s works, which are alive and within us, around us and among us now.  Think of an apple tree, which in the physical, bears many apples, and within each apple are many seeds. Each of those seeds will plant another tree, which will grow many more fruits, creating more bounty. In the spiritual, a seed to be sown is the Word of God, or sowing Wisdom, Understanding, Knowledge or Love. The seed of Love can harvest a full hundred-fold bounty of Love. If even one seed of love is sown, this Love will continue to grow and reap many harvests. When God speaks His Word over something, God’s Word goes before Him abundantly and reaps a harvest no man can count. God’s Works are bountiful and abundant in God’s Divine Nature and when we sow God’s seed, or witness His Works before others, this glorifies Him. The Kingdom of God, is unlike any other, and is what God continues to embrace us in. 

 

“Whoever Does the Will of God is My Brother, Sister and Mother”

Jesus 2

Awhile back, the angels asked me to dedicate Sundays to the Gospels. With love and gratitude, here is the Gospel of Mark 3: 31-35.

His mother and his brothers arrived.
Standing outside they sent word to him and called him.
A crowd seated around him told him,
“Your mother and your brothers and your sisters
are outside asking for you.”
But he said to them in reply,
“Who are my mother and my brothers?”
And looking around at those seated in the circle he said,
“Here are my mother and my brothers.
For whoever does the will of God
is my brother and sister and mother.”

Jesus loves us all very much and includes all who do the WIll of God as His family and joint heirs. Jesus oversees the Earth, the Kingdom of God, the Universe and stands at the Right Hand of God in Heaven; overseeing all whom he loves. 

The Angels Remind Us

Archangels (2)

The angels remind us that:

“God’s Love is over-pouring and uplifting into every heart in every moment. God’s Love is over-pouring even as this is read and is with you now and always. Every time you ask God to overflow His Eternal Love- it is given; and you beloved child of God Himself are never separate from God’s Love and Divine Peace.” 

The angels remind us that they are always willing to assist us in helping us recognize the Love and Peace of God that we are always one with.

“Even if you felt there was something that could keep the angels from helping you recognize the Love of God,” they assure us that, “There could never be anything that could keep the angels from assisting to bring peace, love, joy and to recognize God’s Goodness-which is eternally with you always.”

The angels are always God-sent and are always willing to assist in every situation- you need only ask them and it is done ! 

The Ascension of the Lord

Jesus

Awhile back, the angels asked me to dedicate Sundays to the Gospels. WIth love and gratitude, here is the Gospel of Mark 16:15-20.

Jesus said to his disciples:
“Go into the whole world
and proclaim the gospel to every creature.
Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved;
whoever does not believe will be condemned.
These signs will accompany those who believe:
in my name they will drive out demons,
they will speak new languages.
They will pick up serpents with their hands,
and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not harm them.
They will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

So then the Lord Jesus, after he spoke to them,
was taken up into heaven
and took his seat at the right hand of God.
But they went forth and preached everywhere,
while the Lord worked with them
and confirmed the word through accompanying signs.
