Good Morning Disciples of Jesus Christ. Yesterday, we continued with Matthew 25 and the Parable of the Talents, and how we must use the gifts the Holy Spirit has given us as Disciples of Jesus Christ for His Glory. So, again finishing out Matthew, Chapter 25:31-46, Our Lord continues with how He will separate His Sheep from the goats when He returns and it will be based on the acts of Mercy we have conducted for others in His name with The Judgement of the Nations. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew%2025:31-46&version=NIV.
So, as we have discussed throughout the blog, we can’t just assume God’s Salvation because we say we recognize Jesus Christ as the Son of God Our Father in Heaven. We have to be born again of the water and the Spirit to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John+3:5&version=NIV. That means that it is just not enough to be Baptized, but we must be Transformed with the Holy Spirit and made new into His image to enter into His Kingdom. Some would say, well, what exactly does that mean? I was Baptized and Confirmed with the Holy Spirit, so I am good. No, this is not enough, as Jesus is clearly telling us here in all of Matthew, Chapters 24 and 25. We have to actually pursue Our Lord with all of our hearts, minds and souls when we are Confirmed in the Holy Spirit to be Transformed into the image of God. If we do not actively seek Him in prayer, in Our Sacraments, in Repentance of Our Sins, in His Holy Word (the Bible), and in Acts of Corporal and Spiritual works of Mercy, then we are not truly His Disciples or acting in accordance to His Word, like His Children. This is why we have such a huge discrepancy in our Catholic Church of not understanding that abortion is an egregious sin against God. It is because there is no revelation from the Holy Spirit to the person that is voting for the Democrat platform that this is an egregious sin that we must not conform to or comply with per God’s Word and Sacred Tradition Teaching of the Catholic Church. If we actively seek Our Lord in prayer, and we read His Word in a state of grace, (which means, no mortal sins on our souls), then we begin to have understanding from the Holy Spirit of what offends Our Lord. Some Christians might say, well I do all of these things, and I still don’t see the problem. This means that there is still a mortal sin that is blocking you from the Holy Spirit and this is why you must continue to seek Our Lord in prayer until He reveals it to you. This is always best in front of His real physical presence in the Monstrance in adoration for us Catholics. If you have not been to confession to remove these sins, or you have been receiving the Blessed Sacrament without going to confession, you will not have Revelation from the Holy Spirit, unless Our Lord is merciful enough to reveal it to you through these sins. In which case, He will if you have a truly contrite heart, but then He will tell you that you must seek Confession and stop conducting the sins that have offended Him and the Blessed Trinity and has blocked the Holy Spirit working in you.
So, in Matthew 25:31-46, The Judgement of the Nations, Our Lord is telling us that He will be coming as the Just Judge at this point, and there is no time left for us wise virgins to share our oil with other Children of God. Our Lord is telling the goats that they did not feed the hungry person, they did not welcome the stranger, they did not give drink to the the thirsty, therefore they are being thrown into the fire of eternal punishment. Disciples of Jesus Christ, if you have failed our Lord in doing these acts of Mercy in the past, you now have the time to do them before Our Lord returns. Because as these judgements come down on the Nations, we will be given the opportunity to Serve Jesus like never before. We are being tested as His Children and Purified to make our Robes white so that we may be counted as the Sheep. (The least of these) will be those that are thirsty for God’s Love and need the Living Water of Our Lord Jesus Christ. The hungry will be those that are living the famine we are now entering of no physical food, and also the Spiritual famine of no Living Bread of Our Lord Jesus Christ. The strangers will be those that have no physical home because it got destroyed in a flood or a fire, or a tornado, and they also don’t have God’s Spiritual refuge of His Sacred Heart to turn to because they are strangers to Him. We all will be living out the Corporal and the Spiritual works of Mercy during the times of distress before Our Lord returns, and this is our chance to shine for Him as His Lampstands like never before! This is our chance to become like the Children in God’s Church of Philadelphia in Revelation 3:7-13, https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Revelation%203:7-13&version=NIV.
So, here is a video I believe the Holy Spirit has guided us to because it confirms that in the midst of chaos all around us during the time of distress, there will be miracles abounding through the work of the Holy Spirit in us as God’s Disciples. This police officer’s death experience with Our Lord in his presence, and later his dreams and visions confirm that as chaos begins to unfold, so will the Second Pentecost occur with miracles and conversions of souls all over the world. For us, this also confirms that the Warning is very close and Father Michel Rodrigue’s prophetic messages from God Our Father, that the Warning will be the beginning of the Purification and a Second Pentecost for all of His Children. https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=My+Church+Does+Not+Really+Believe+I%27m+Coming+Back+Soon+Youtube+Police+OfficervideoHearken&&view=detail&mid=3293722C16430905027E3293722C16430905027E&&FORM=VDRVRV.
God shows us time and time again of how merciful He is and if we just come to Him with a sincere heart, asking Him for His forgiveness, He will forgive and reveal to us how we have offended Him, and we need to seek His Mercy now, instead of waiting until after the Warning. If we are confused on whether we have any sins blocking the Holy Spirit’s guidance for everything and anything we do, then we must ask God ourselves with a contrite heart. We can’t rely on our own judgement, because we are flawed with original sin and temptations that have pulled us away from God. We can’t judge others, but we can judge others actions, and we must judge ourselves and constantly examine ourselves with God’s help, if we are living our lives rightly ordered under His Divine Will. Now is our time to Repent, if we have not, and Serve Our Lord by fulfilling His Will as wise virgins, using our gifts for His Glory, and conducting works of Mercy for Him that He tells us to do in Matthew, Chapter 25 and in the book of Revelation 3:7-13, to wash our Robes white to prepare for Our Lord’s Second Coming.
Emmanuel – “God is with Us.” Jesus, We Trust in You. Precious Blood of Jesus Christ, have mercy on us sinners. Abba, Father, Thy Will Be Done.
