Goodmorning Disciples of Jesus Christ. Happy Feast Day of Epiphany! We are going to draw together the importance of the Feast of the Epiphany as the significance of the three Magi recognizing that Jesus at His birth was and is the Son of God, and God revealing to us how critical His Birth was to the whole world. This is significant because it is unknown of what origin or religion these three Magi came from and where their beliefs of God rested. Because it appeared that these three Magi were from Persia or Zoroastrian decent, it is believed that most likely they were not from Jewish decent and likely pagan. Therefore, God Our Father significantly chooses these three Magi to represent humanity from different backgrounds and beliefs recognizing that the baby born to a Virgin was the Son of God and the Savior of the whole world, and not just to save the Jewish People, but everyone who recognizes Him to be the one whose dominion rests upon His shoulders.
First, let’s post the Feast of the Epiphany Holy Mass celebrated at St. Mary’s Parish in Ottawa, Canada for today. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oz2HThtVPoo.
Here is an excellent description of the Feast of the Epiphany and its importance. https://www.catholicworldreport.com/2022/01/01/wise-men-from-the-east-and-the-feast-of-the-epiphany-of-the-lord/.
Why is this important for non-believers? Because this revelation tells us that God was not just sending His beautiful Son to rescue His chosen people, the Israelites. God Our Father sent His Son to reveal to the whole world, no matter where you came from that you too have a chance at Salvation. Just like we posted the other day with Father David Nix and Padre Peregrino that “All Flesh will see the Salvation of God”, this is a gift to all of humanity who recognizes that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the entire world. For us Catholics, there are Traditions that have been passed down through the centuries on the protection that God provides for us through the blessing of water and chalk. It is said that the water and chalk can be used as Sacramentals in protecting our homes from demonic spirits. If you can find a Parish that will conduct a blessing of the water and chalk, please try to attend this service. This year we are celebrating the Feast of the Epiphany today and our Church will be blessing chalk. However, it is believed that the special blessing of Epiphany water and chalk can still be conducted on January 5th, 2022, since the feast day is actually January 6, 2022. Here is what Sensus Fidelium posted on this special blessing. https://sensusfidelium.com/2020/01/05/blessing-of-epiphany-water/.
Here is the PDF listing the blessing instructions but must be conducted by a priest. https://maternalheart.org/propers/Epiphany/Vigil%20of%20the%20Epiphany/Blessing%20of%20Epiphany%20Water.pdf.
Here is the PDF for the blessing of the home by the head of the household against demonic attacks. https://dmsbcatholic.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Blessing-of-Thresholds-with-Blessed-Chalk.pdf.
It is said that this blessing of the chalk over your doorway is similar to the Blood of the unblemished Lamb being painted over the Israelite doorways at the Passover. Here is another description. https://www.catholicicing.com/epiphany-house-blessing-with-chalk/.
So, let’s talk about how the Prophet Isaiah did an excellent job in preparing the Israelites for the coming of the Messiah, who is Our Lord Jesus Christ. When I was in adoration the other day in front of the Blessed Sacrament, I opened to Isaiah Chapters 9 and 10. I believe the Holy Spirit guided me to these specific chapters for this period of time in the labor pains because it is perfectly aligned with the significance of the birth of Our Lord, and how He is also getting ready to return as the just Judge. Here is Isaiah, Chapter 9, https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isaiah%209&version=NIV.
So, we can see that God is revealing to us through Isaiah who is telling us in 9:6-7 that a child will be born, a Son is given, and He will be called many names, especially what is significant is the title of “Mighty God” and “Everlasting Father”. How can this child be just a man and political figure if Isaiah gave Him these two titles? Again, as Jesus explained in His Gospel asking the Pharisees to explain how the son of David can sit at the right hand of God in Luke 2-:41-44? https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Luke%2020:41-44&version=NIV.
In Psalm 110 of King David’s vision, he stated, “My Lord sitting at the right hand of My Lord”. Jesus asked them how could this be, if the man David was referring to was his own son? We explained this in a previous post, and this is similar to what God Our Father is revealing to Isaiah, just like he did to King David that a Son of God will be given, and His Kingdom will have no end.
6 For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the greatness of his government and peace
there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne
and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the Lord Almighty
will accomplish this.“
Then in 9: 8-16, we see God Our Father’s anger towards those that lead His people away in deceit. Very similar to what we are witnessing now in our lifetime with what our governments are doing with the plan-demic, using it as a tool to change the world and mock God by “re-building” into a “build, back, better” society.
“The Lord’s Anger Against Israel
8 The Lord has sent a message against Jacob;
it will fall on Israel.
9 All the people will know it—
Ephraim and the inhabitants of Samaria—
who say with pride
and arrogance of heart,
10 “The bricks have fallen down,
but we will rebuild with dressed stone;
the fig trees have been felled,
but we will replace them with cedars.”
11 But the Lord has strengthened Rezin’s foes against them
and has spurred their enemies on.
12 Arameans from the east and Philistines from the west
have devoured Israel with open mouth.
Yet for all this, his anger is not turned away,
his hand is still upraised.
13 But the people have not returned to him who struck them,
nor have they sought the Lord Almighty.
14 So the Lord will cut off from Israel both head and tail,
both palm branch and reed in a single day;
15 the elders and dignitaries are the head,
the prophets who teach lies are the tail.
16 Those who guide this people mislead them,
and those who are guided are led astray.”
Hmm, isn’t this the same Scripture read by American leaders after the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. Isn’t this what Jonathan Cahn stated in his books was a curse we placed on ourselves in America that had the appearance of mocking God? Why didn’t the leaders of our Nation see at that time that this Scripture made God angry when the Israelites stated they would re-build because of their arrogance? And how does this same re-building and mocking of God also tie into the “Build Back Better” ideology that is being pushed onto the entire world today? The idea of building something better than what God established for our country and for our world.
Then in Isaiah Chapter 10, we see that right after the description of the child being born and given to us that have walked in this darkness, we see that this same child will be used by God to rule the nations with His wrath of justice for His Children. Wow! what a powerful word from God! https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isaiah+10&version=NIV.
10 Woe to those who make unjust laws,
to those who issue oppressive decrees,
2 to deprive the poor of their rights
and withhold justice from the oppressed of my people,
making widows their prey
and robbing the fatherless.
3 What will you do on the day of reckoning,
when disaster comes from afar?
To whom will you run for help?
Where will you leave your riches?
4 Nothing will remain but to cringe among the captives
or fall among the slain.
Yet for all this, his anger is not turned away,
his hand is still upraised.
God’s Judgment on Assyria
5 “Woe to the Assyrian, the rod of my anger,
in whose hand is the club of my wrath!
6 I send him against a godless nation,
I dispatch him against a people who anger me,
to seize loot and snatch plunder,
and to trample them down like mud in the streets.
7 But this is not what he intends,
this is not what he has in mind;
his purpose is to destroy,
to put an end to many nations.
8 ‘Are not my commanders all kings?’ he says.
9 ‘Has not Kalno fared like Carchemish?
Is not Hamath like Arpad,
and Samaria like Damascus?
10 As my hand seized the kingdoms of the idols,
kingdoms whose images excelled those of Jerusalem and Samaria—
11 shall I not deal with Jerusalem and her images
as I dealt with Samaria and her idols?’”
12 When the Lord has finished all his work against Mount Zion and Jerusalem, he will say, “I will punish the king of Assyria for the willful pride of his heart and the haughty look in his eyes. 13 For he says:
“‘By the strength of my hand I have done this,
and by my wisdom, because I have understanding.
I removed the boundaries of nations,
I plundered their treasures;
like a mighty one I subdued[a] their kings.
14 As one reaches into a nest,
so my hand reached for the wealth of the nations;
as people gather abandoned eggs,
so I gathered all the countries;
not one flapped a wing,
or opened its mouth to chirp.’”
15 Does the ax raise itself above the person who swings it,
or the saw boast against the one who uses it?
As if a rod were to wield the person who lifts it up,
or a club brandish the one who is not wood!
16 Therefore, the Lord, the Lord Almighty,
will send a wasting disease upon his sturdy warriors;
under his pomp a fire will be kindled
like a blazing flame.
17 The Light of Israel will become a fire,
their Holy One a flame;
in a single day it will burn and consume
his thorns and his briers.
18 The splendor of his forests and fertile fields
it will completely destroy,
as when a sick person wastes away.
19 And the remaining trees of his forests will be so few
that a child could write them down.
The Remnant of Israel
20 In that day the remnant of Israel,
the survivors of Jacob,
will no longer rely on him
who struck them down
but will truly rely on the Lord,
the Holy One of Israel.
21 A remnant will return,[b] a remnant of Jacob
will return to the Mighty God.
22 Though your people be like the sand by the sea, Israel,
only a remnant will return.
Destruction has been decreed,
overwhelming and righteous.
23 The Lord, the Lord Almighty, will carry out
the destruction decreed upon the whole land.
24 Therefore this is what the Lord, the Lord Almighty, says:
“My people who live in Zion,
do not be afraid of the Assyrians,
who beat you with a rod
and lift up a club against you, as Egypt did.
25 Very soon my anger against you will end
and my wrath will be directed to their destruction.”
26 The Lord Almighty will lash them with a whip,
as when he struck down Midian at the rock of Oreb;
and he will raise his staff over the waters,
as he did in Egypt.
27 In that day their burden will be lifted from your shoulders,
their yoke from your neck;
the yoke will be broken
because you have grown so fat.[c]
28 They enter Aiath;
they pass through Migron;
they store supplies at Mikmash.
29 They go over the pass, and say,
“We will camp overnight at Geba.”
Gibeah of Saul flees.
30 Cry out, Daughter Gallim!
31 Madmenah is in flight;
the people of Gebim take cover.
32 This day they will halt at Nob;
they will shake their fist
at the mount of Daughter Zion,
at the hill of Jerusalem.
33 See, the Lord, the Lord Almighty,
will lop off the boughs with great power.
The lofty trees will be felled,
the tall ones will be brought low.
34 He will cut down the forest thickets with an ax;
Lebanon will fall before the Mighty One.
So, we see that Our Lord will cut down the mighty “re-building” with the cedars of Lebanon that the arrogant leaders boasted about in mocking God. Isn’t it significant that right now we are celebrating the birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ and at the same time, the Prophets are preparing us for the Great Tribulation? Could this Scripture in Isaiah Chapters 9 and 10 that the Holy Spirit pointed me to during Adoration the other day be fulfilled soon? Only God our Father knows, but the bigger question to ask right now is are you part of the Holy Remnant that God is telling you not to be afraid because He is about to remove the yoke from your neck that the Elites and leaders are putting on us in verses 26 through 27? God is about to remove the arrogant oppressors of His Children and cut off the head and the tail in one day to free His people that have been deceived.
You are either part of the Build, Back Better arrogant people mocking God, or you are part of the Remnant of Jacob. The choice is yours, and you can choose Jesus Christ today, and recognize that He is the Son of God, like the three Magi did, or you can continue to be deceived into believing that men can do things better than God Himself.
Let us Pray – God Our Father in Heaven. We are thankful for the precious gift of Our Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior and King. We can never re-pay You for all of the Love You have shown us by sending us Your only begotten Son to save us from our sins, and from our oppressors. We offer up ourselves today and every day to assist You in the Salvation of Souls. Please allow us to receive the gift of living in Your Divine Will and please have Mercy on our souls as we continue to purify our hearts for the Second coming of Our Lord Jesus Christ. We don’t know the day or the hour of His return, but we do know that You have continually prepared us through Your Sacred Scripture and Prophets. Please never leave us and allow us to always be able to celebrate the Sacrifice of the Holy Mass in honor and remembrance of the sacrifice You, Your Son and Your Holy Spirit made for us and our salvation. We Love Lord, now and forever. Amen.
