Dear friends in Jesus Christ,
I would say that this is privilege for me that I can bring down the Gospel of our Lord, the Good News that you are all gonna be saved. Just if you believe. For as St John the Apostles writes, in
John 3.18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.
And St Mark the Apostle Seals the message with a responsibility and commitment toward God, by adding the word Baptized when He writes in Mark 16
“Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: In My name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up snakes with their hands, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not harm them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will be made well.”
So friends, I am happy today, and I thought that I have said a lot to you, and I have done what the Lord has asked me to do, and that it was enough. I thought that what to write to you, I have given everything that you need to know to become A Christian Warrior.
And before I thought that during the dinner time, I spoke to my parents about a beautiful homily which one of or great priest in the parish has said on last Sunday. The message was something different, context was too. But today with that same message Lord made me understood something great. Hallelujah , which I want to share with you all.
Hallelujah Praise the Lord. For he is amazing.
And the message for today is Be not be content in your spiritual life, be not be content with being Holy, everyday you and me are called to go deeper, deeper in the Ocean of Love, for we are finite, but our God is infinite.
You know if you have the desire to go to heaven, and you are making serious efforts for that, then my friend, you are half way there, you can very well feel its existence.
Heaven is a place where there is no male nor female, no Jews nor gentile, but all are servants of one master, Jesus Christ.
Heaven is place where there peace, peace in your heart, in your mind in your soul, where you sleep, by just saying this to the Lord our God, that Lord, I thank you for this amazing day which I had, and in your hands now I commend my soul. Let your holy will be done. Hallelujah
Heaven is a place where there is no Law, but all are done, in Love.
Heaven is God’s home, and as we are Children of God, all of us, all who are Baptized in the name of the most Holy Father, In the name of the Sinless Son(Jesus), and the Powerful Holy Spirit, we are welcomed there. And every single time when you say a no to a Sin, and Yes to the Angel of Life(Jesus Christ), not the Angel of Light(which is Satan himself, sometimes in disguise), you my friend, are moving one step at a time, towards Heaven.
Now friends, if you want to be a part of that heaven, right now you can do it, no you don’t have to buy anything, for Heaven is God’s abode and you cannot buy God with anything, but God has a weakness, He loves us, and He loves us more when we humble ourselves, when we become servants, He then opens his heart to us, that we can go there and live forever sinless-ly under his love affection care and presence.
So now here my dear friends the scripture finds its completion
Whoever wants to be greater among you, must be a servant of all –Matthew 20:26
Oh My God, friends
Read with me Matthew 20, God is present here, He is directing me to read it to you friends, the entire chapter, come let us read together.
The Parable of the Workers
1For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire workers for his vineyard. 2He agreed to pay them a denarius for the day and sent them into his vineyard.
3About the third hour he went out and saw others standing in the marketplace without anything to do.4‘You also go into my vineyard,’ he said, ‘and I will pay you whatever is right.’ 5So they went.
He went out again about the sixth hour and the ninth hour and did the same thing.
6About the eleventh hour he went out and found still others standing around. ‘Why have you been standing here all day long doing nothing?’ he asked.
7‘Because no one has hired us,’ they answered.
So he told them, ‘You also go into my vineyard.’
8When evening came, the owner of the vineyard said to his foreman, ‘Call the workers and pay them their wages, starting with the last ones hired and moving on to the first.’
9The workers who were hired about the eleventh hour came and each received a denarius. 10So when the original workers came, they assumed they would receive more. But each of them also received a denarius.
11On receiving their pay, they began to grumble against the landowner. 12‘These men who were hired last worked only one hour,’ they said, ‘and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden and the scorching heat of the day.’
13But he answered one of them, ‘Friend, I am not being unfair to you. Did you not agree with me on one denarius? 14Take your pay and go. I want to give this last man the same as I gave you. 15Do I not have the right to do as I please with what is mine? Or are you envious because I am generous?’
16So the last will be first, and the first will be last.”
The Third Prediction of the Passion
(Mark 10:32-34; Luke 18:31-34)
17As Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, He took the twelve disciples aside and said, 18“Look, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and scribes. They will condemn Him to death 19and will deliver Him to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified. And on the third day He will be raised to life.”
A Mother’s Request
20Then the mother of Zebedee’s sons came to Jesus with her sons and knelt down to make a request of Him.
21“What do you want?” He asked.
She answered, “Declare that in Your kingdom one of these two sons of mine will sit at Your right hand, and the other at Your left.”
22“You do not know what you are asking,” Jesus replied. “Are you able to drink the cup I am going to drink?”
“We are able,” the brothers answered.
23“You will indeed drink My cup,”Jesus said. “But to sit at My right or left is not Mine to grant. These seats belong to those for whom My Father has prepared them.”
24When the ten heard about this, they were indignant with the two brothers. 25But Jesus called them aside and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their superiors exercise authority over them. 26It shall not be this way among you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, 27and whoever wants to be first among you must be your slave—28just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.”
The Blind Men by the Road
(Mark 10:46-52; Luke 18:35-43)
29As they were leaving Jericho, a large crowd followed Him. 30And there were two blind men sitting by the roadside. When they heard that Jesus was passing by, they shouted, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!”
31The crowd chided them to be silent, but they shouted all the louder, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!”
32Jesus stopped and called them. “What do you want Me to do for you?” He asked.
33“Lord,” they answered, “let our eyes be opened.”
34Moved with compassion, Jesus touched their eyes, and at once they received their sight and followed Him.
Friends, I am still in awe an wonder of our Lord, How great is His Glory, mercy and love.
My Mouth can only sing his Praise, you know, and there is one Psalm which came into my mind just right now, which I wanted to share with you.
A Psalm of David.
1Bless the LORD, O my soul,
And all that is within me, bless His holy name.
2Bless the LORD, O my soul,
And forget none of His benefits;
3Who pardons all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases;
4Who redeems your life from the pit,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion;
5Who satisfies your years with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle.
6The LORD performs righteous deeds
And judgments for all who are oppressed.
7He made known His ways to Moses,
His acts to the sons of Israel.
8The LORD is compassionate and gracious,
Slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness.
9He will not always strive with us,
Nor will He keep His anger forever.
10He has not dealt with us according to our sins,
Nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
11For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
So great is His lovingkindness toward those who fear Him.
12As far as the east is from the west,
So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
13Just as a father has compassion on his children,
So the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him.
14For He Himself knows our frame;
He is mindful that we are but dust.
15As for man, his days are like grass;
As a flower of the field, so he flourishes.
16When the wind has passed over it, it is no more,
And its place acknowledges it no longer.
17But the lovingkindness of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him,
And His righteousness to children’s children,
18To those who keep His covenant
And remember His precepts to do them.
19The LORD has established His throne in the heavens,
And His sovereignty rules over all.
20Bless the LORD, you His angels,
Mighty in strength, who perform His word,
Obeying the voice of His word!
21Bless the LORD, all you His hosts,
You who serve Him, doing His will.
22Bless the LORD, all you works of His,
In all places of His dominion;
Bless the LORD, O my soul!
Bless the Lord.

Friends, today let it mark in your life, with this closing verse which God has showed me just now
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. – Matthew 5:6
Go now, Go in the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ, let there be peace in your hearts and in your mind, Let today you are re Baptized with the Fire of the Holy Spirit, not in my words, but in the words and commands and will of God the Father almighty.
May from today onward you can live your life to serve others, just as our savior has served us by giving his life, to protect ours.
Friend, May this be a new Dawn a New Chapter in our lives.
Let you be set free, from anything that is holding you from doing God’s work.
I’m not here to preach to you, friends, I want to see Jesus in you, as you have seen it in me.
God wants you all to be like Jesus Christ, like a leader to your self and all those whom He has given to you.
Will you fulfill the commands of your Lord? And love him and love one another with undivided heart?
If you want to bring a change in the world, if you want to make a dent in the universe, then Follow Jesus, follow his ways, and Become the Fire, that you are called to be. Glow, Burn, to light the world around you, do not think about your pain or your gains, think about all those who will be saved, who will come to light, by seeing the presence of Jesus Christ in you. Think how much can you do for your family, for your neighborhood, for your country, for your continent, for this earth, and for this entire universe.
Do not be afraid to profess your faith, for the Lord is with you, it may so happen that they may kill you, they may beat you for saying the name of Jesus, but one thing they cannot do, and that is take away your God from you.
As long as your mouth confesses that Jesus Christ is your Lord, and mine, as long as your blood runs hot in your beating heart, as long as you say Jesus Christ is the Savior of the World. My friend, God’s Spirit will be with you. It will lead you to quiter pastures, and will strengthen you in ways you cannot imagine.
Where is no light, God will make one for you,
Where there is not hope, Jesus Christ will be your Hope,
Where there is no life, Jesus Christ will make them alive.
It only costs, your faith, if you Dare to believe in the Son of God, in Jesus Christ our Lord, He will make you complete, and give you what you ask. And with that you will have to love, for the scripture also warns us, that Faith without love is nothing.
Then you my friend, will be able to feel the Kingdom of God, and you can and will enter it. Amen. Hallelujah
In the end my dear friends, I would ask you, that if you love me, if you love my Lord, Jesus Christ, then He wants you to have faith in our Pope Francis, and He wants you to love Him, and pray for him. No matter what do you think about him my dear friends, one prayer for him, can change your life, and can strengthen him to do God’s mission.
He is already doing a lot for the Church, and I surely believe that God has sent him to us, so that we can see what it takes to have Jesus, inside a person’s heart.
Friend, pray for this Man, pray for Him as you would have prayed to the Lord, for your own brother.
Prayer is the best gift we can give him for being one of the best servant leaders of all times since Jesus Christ.
