Love Your Enemies, Do Good To Them, and Lend Without Expecting Return

Luke 6:34-36

34 And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, expecting to be repaid in full.

35 But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.

36 Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.

Adoration – Shalom Night Vigil January – 2017

Adoration is a sign of devotion to and worship of Jesus Christ, who is believed by Catholics to be present Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity, under the appearance of the consecrated host, in the form of hosts, that is, consecrated altar bread. As a devotion, Eucharistic adoration and meditation are more than merely looking at the Blessed Host, but are believed to be a continuation of what was celebrated in the Eucharist. Watch the video of Adoration during Shalom Night Vigil and pray with strong faith and devotion. If you pray with full faith and devotion, then you will be blessed and God will surely fulfill your intentions.

Word of God is not for self explanation – Take the Word of God Sword

Holy Bible20 He was destined before the foundation of the world, but was revealed at the end of the ages for your sake. 21 Through him you have come to trust in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are set on God. (1 peter 1:20-21)

You might have attended many retreats and have received blessings of Holy Spirit. That doesn’t mean that your explanations about Bible verses are complete.  Spiritual knowledge and power of explanation about the Word of God is lying with church (magisterium) If we have surely the Holy Spirit in us, then we will never try to explain the Word of God as per our knowledge and belief beyond the mainstream of the Apostolic Church.

For we are not peddlers of God’s word like so many; but in Christ we speak as persons of sincerity, as persons sent from God and standing in his presence. (2 Corinthians 2:17)

Word of God should preach only with purity and attached with the Apostolic Church.

But even if we or an angel from heaven should proclaim to you a gospel contrary to what we proclaimed to you, let that one be accursed! As we have said before, so now I repeat, if anyone proclaims to you a gospel contrary to what you received, let that one be accursed! (Galatians 1:8-9)

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved by him, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly explaining the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15)

After reading Word of God, do not speak explain whatever you like. Handle Word of God properly.  Be a good servant of Christ, good preacher of the Word of God with maturity, purity and attached with the magisterium of the Apostolic Church.

Model of St. Paul

for I did not receive it from a human source, nor was I taught it, but I received it through a revelation of Jesus Christ. (Galatians 1:12)

God gave everything to St. Paul through revelation. Still he presented it before other apostles and humbly evaluated for mistakes. This is the heart opening where there is blessings of the Holy Spirit.

We read the words of St. Paul as below:-

Then after fourteen years I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, taking Titus along with me. I went up in response to a revelation. Then I laid before them (though only in a private meeting with the acknowledged leaders) the gospel that I proclaim among the Gentiles, in order to make sure that I was not running, or had not run, in vain. (Galatians 2:1-2)

If our run should not become wastage, then we should preach the Word of God only with the consent of Bishops, co-operation of the church, obedient to the powers and rules of the church.

God ignore people do not have Word of God – Take the Word of God Sword

Holy Bible

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge;
because you have rejected knowledge,
I reject you from being a priest to me.
And since you have forgotten the law of your God,
I also will forget your children. (Hosea 4:6)

Saul, the first king of Israel ignored the Word of God. Then God rejected him from the kingdom.

For rebellion is no less a sin than divination,
    and stubbornness is like iniquity and idolatry.
Because you have rejected the word of the Lord,
    he has also rejected you from being king.” (1 Samuel 15:23)

God rejected Saul ruined. Failed in the war. Saul tried to die leaning on his spear. His stomach cut opened, intestines came out, blood flowed. How can forget the last moments of Saul floundering to die. The sad picture of his end is in the last words to an Amalekite who passed through that way.

He said to me, ‘Come, stand over me and kill me; for convulsions have seized me, and yet my life still lingers.’ (2 Samuel 1:9)

Ignoring Word of God reached Saul at this stage.

But Lot’s wife, behind him, looked back, and she became a pillar of salt. (Genesis 19:26)

God rejected the wife of Lot who ignored the Word of God. Lot accepted and obeyed the Word of God. That lead him to life. People who reject the Word of God will become dead life.

Lack of understanding about the Word of God is ruin – Take the Word of God Sword

Holy Bible

  1. Is it enough to read the Bible as per our mood only?
  2. Does our duty finish by reading Bible?
  3. What the Lord want from us by reading and studying the Word of God?
  4. Ignoring the word of God how ruin the life?
  5. What is written in Bible about the benefits of the Word of God?
  6. How a Christian should see the Word of God?

Let us Pray – “My Jesus, send your Holy Spirit to teach me the ways to eternal life. Open my heart to understand your rules and commandments.  Praise the Lord. Thanks to Lord. (say Alleluia.. Alleluia many times with raised hands)

Lack of understanding about the Word of God is wastage.

13 Therefore my people will go into exile
    for lack of understanding;
those of high rank will die of hunger
    and the common people will be parched with thirst.
14 Therefore Death expands its jaws,
    opening wide its mouth;
into it will descend their nobles and masses
    with all their brawlers and revelers.
15 So people will be brought low
    and everyone humbled,
    the eyes of the arrogant humbled. (Isaiah 5:13-15)

In the bible the word ‘lack of understanding’ is not used about the world or worldly things, but meant about the God and the Word of God.

Jesus replied, “Are you not in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God? (Mark 12:24)

……. a people without understanding will come to ruin! (Hosea 4:14)

When its twigs are dry, they are broken off and women come and make fires with them.
For this is a people without understanding;  so their Maker has no compassion on them, and their Creator shows them no favor. (Isaiah 27:11)

God does not give any value to a  person who do not have Word of God in the heart. He will be ignored like dried and decayed wood falling from tree.

Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:19)

Violating even a very small word of God will lead a person without value in heaven

….. “They stumble because they disobey the word, as they were destined to do.” (1 Peter 2:8)
