SEVENTH SUNDAY OF EASTER & SEVENTH WEEK OF EASTER: MONDAY
John 17:24-26 & John 16:29-33
“Father! You have given them to Me, and I want them to be with Me where I Am, so that they may see My Glory, the Glory you gave Me; for You loved Me before the world was made. (Here we could see that the Glory of God is more about the Brilliant Light of God’s Love. Indeed in our relationships with God through Christ, God loves us so dearly and His Love for us is the same Love that He had with His Son our Lord Jesus Christ. This is between the Blessed Trinity and the Humanity of Christ while He was still in this world, then this relationship of Divine Love for His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of Mary, raised us who are His disciples up into the same Status that God had with His Son. This means that we are sons and daughters of God in the Body of the Glorious Son of Man, so God sees the Image and Likeness of Jesus Christ in all those who are drawn into the Body of our Lord Jesus Christ. This is the Heavenly Temple of Jerusalem, where His Body guides all human beings who are God’s children to the Blessed Trinity. In the Mystical Body of Christ we could replace the Heavenly Temple of Jerusalem with the Church in Heaven, so all of us who entered into His Body or the New Temple of Jerusalem will be guided to end in the Holy of Holies, where we could see and enter into the Throne of God the Father and visible is the Glorious Son of Man on His Throne. Here we need to know that when Stephen was being stoned to death, He saw the Glorious Son of Man standing, so here when God through Christ stands, we know that what would be taking place will be to the glory of God. Standing reveal the wrath of God and God was angry with those who cooperated with Satan through those who wanted to stone Stephen. So in the reality of life, when Covid-19 had gotten out of control and God’s will was not accomplished and human beings were too slow to learn, understand, listen and obey the will of God and in Covid-19, we could see the chastisements of God in His Hands at work, whereby what God desired was the conversions of sinners to God and for those who are servants and stewards of God to be strengthen and their faith and trust in God increased. Soon all these will come to pass and we know that God alone determined when Covid-19 would be over and when this is over it shall be over. But we must not return to our old ways of living our lives in debauchery and dissipation or overindulgence or without controlling our pursuits of carnal or physical pleasures. It was when the Glorious Son of Man stood up that Covid-19 will be totally vulnerable and becomes subject of human in medical sciences.)
“Righteous Father! The world does not know You, but I know You, and these know that You sent Me. I made You known to them, and I will continue to do so in order that the Love You have for Me may be in them, and so that I also may be in them.” (So here we could see that whatever Jesus Christ is doing and where He is going and when He rules with the Authority and Power of God His Father; these are so that all His brothers and sisters who are His disciples will follow Him, learn from Him and know Him in order to Love Him as He loves us. This Love of God is Living Love whereby this was not about histories of which He manifested His fullness of Love for us by dying for us, while we were still sinners and since the First Pentecost till the End of Time, the Love of God which is Living Love whereby He as the Person through our Lord Jesus Christ enters into time and space and are looking for human beings whom the Father created and Love; Jesus Christ is going to bring them all into the Kingdom of Heaven, where He is seated at the Right-Hand side of His Father and this is more about God’s Authority and Power taking Flesh in its entirety in the Glorious Son of Man, so once Jesus Christ takes His Seat on the Right-Hand side of His Father, the Blessed Trinity is physically seen through our human spiritual eyes by those whom God chooses to allow Himself to be seen and known in more profound manners.
God through Jesus Christ in the Power and working of the Holy Spirit will continue to enlighten us, as He reveals Himself to us, teaches and guides us, so that we will finally gathered together in the Holy of Holies where all the saints and angels are facing the Glorious Son of Man and are listening, obeying, honoring, adoring and praising Him in humble adorations as they bowed their heads and their foreheads touched the lowest portion. God is Generous with all those who welcome His Teaching, listened to Him, Love Him and obeyed Him, so these blessed saints-to-be on earth will receive Heavenly lessons and taught by God through the Holy Spirit. In the pasts certain messengers and prophets whom God loved deeply and dearly will be enlightened and these will revealed to others what God had taught them, but these were very limited and messages and teachings came in certain times of enlightenments, but since the First Pentecost till the End of Time, children of God filled with the Holy Spirit lived in Communion with God through unity of their hearts with the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ, their souls with the Glorious Soul of Jesus Christ and their human spirits and minds with the Mind and Victorious Human Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ. They are not joined together only in certain times when they prayed, but there is the possibility that they are joined together twenty-four hours per day, seven days a week and continued to months, years, decades and even century. We need to know that once we pledged our love for God in the New and Everlasting Covenant in the Blood of the Lamb of God, our Lord Jesus Christ, we may not be faithful to God always, but God is faithful to us regardless of our unfaithfulness, so even when we are in comatose, asleep or mentally unstable so could not exercise our freewill; God will stay with us always. So if we are humble and contrite, still and waiting to hear His Voices, we will not be disappointed, as He will talk and communicate with us and this mean that God hears and listens with love and compassion as we talk to Him and we are those who are not listening but keep talking and talking, so we need to be still and pray for humility of hearts, souls and human spirits, admitting that we do not know how to pray and ask God to teach us to pray. He will teach us to pray and the highest prayers are divine prayers of Christ within our physical bodies, souls and human spirits; these are the gift of strange tongues. Strange because we distanced ourselves from God and our Heavenly Family who sings and speaks in strange tongues which are ‘mother-tongues’ of all saints. So we need to ask for the gift of strange tongues so that our souls and human spirits through our hearts and minds can have secret conversations with God in the absence of Satan and his forces of darkness, because Satan will be lost when we speak to God in the secret codes of the Family of God. So beside asking for the gift of Prophecy which enabled us to proclaim the Kingdom of God in preaching by prophetic teachings whereby God speaks through us who are servants and bearers of the Good News of God through Christ, we need the gift of strange tongues to defeat Satan within our bodies, bodies of our brothers and sisters and in God’s Kingdom on earth.)
… “But I Am not really alone, because the Father is with Me. (Here the disciples will see that they estranged themselves from Jesus Christ and all they could see was that they had been cheated and their hope vanished and there were regrets and yet they still recalled what Jesus had spoken and revealed to them. These manifestations of Jesus Christ as Divine God in His Human Person were very important because their faith will finally increase and grew as they could see what were revealed when Jesus Christ was still with them was unfolding part by part. When Peter was in deep confusion as the disciples, believers and crowds started to disperse and those left behind were the Disciples of Jesus Christ when Jesus was revealing to them that in order to have Eternal lives, they must eat His Body which is the Bread of Life, ‘Simon Peter answered Him, ‘Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the Words of Eternal Life’, as written in John 6:68, so do we have or rather want to have the faith of Peter and the Disciples of Jesus Christ as they stayed with Him, but they abandoned Him, during the ‘hour of darkness’ as revealed by Jesus Christ, “Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift all of you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, Simon that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers”, as written in Luke 22:31-32. So here we could see that although we have amazing great faith in God, there will be times that our faith will fail us when God allows Satan to test us. Here we need to learn from these words addressed by King David, ‘Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him’, as written in Psalm 34:8. In our lives on earth we may be tempted to test Satan to see that he is powerful or otherwise and we learned and heard from testimonies of those who lived immoral lives, especially those involved in gambling, whereby they consulted evil spirits, personally or through mediums and some bored testimonies that they had struck big through these evil intercessions and communions with these evil spirits. These are the realities of even Christians being tempted to try and test these evil spirits, so let us remember that instead of testing Satan in order to see that they held certain mysterious evil powers, let us instead test and see that the Lord is good. Whatever powers and authorities we gave to Satan, we will give them permissions to intrude into our territories even without our permission when we trusted in them. When we owed anything to these evil forces of darkness our souls and human spirits will have to pay these debts and if we continued to be indebted to Satan, we will finally surrender our souls as slaves at his disposals. So be aware that we must not get any favor or partake in the ‘swine food’ at the table of Satan and when we gain favor from him, we owed more and more to him and if these cannot be paid, we will finally surrender the bodies God created to be temples of the Holy Spirit to Satan and these become temples of Satan and his evil spirits, therefore these bodies are only fit to enter and live in hell and Satan as their lord and master. Remember dear brothers and sisters not to sell our birthrights to Satan because he is the most enthusiastic buyer of our birthrights as Inheritance of the Kingdom of God and citizens of Heaven.)
… “I have defeated the world!” (1 Corinthians 15:54-56 stated, ‘When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: ‘Death has been swallowed up in victory”. ‘Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?’ The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the Law.’ So here we know that the power of death which is caused by Satan and our sins or our relationships and friendships with Satan in illicit evil pacts, vows and pledges; this power of Satan was overthrown by Christ Jesus at His Death and by His Blood, the New and Everlasting Covenant was sealed for those generations after Pentecost till those born before the End of Time. The Victory of Christ, the Son of Man born of Mary over death was shown by His Resurrection which is not the same with the raising of Lazarus, Zairus’ daughter or the widow’s son at Nain, because all of these died physically later, but their bodies are still in the soil of the earth, while the Son of Man was Resurrected not only to enter Heaven, like the Assumption of Mary into Heaven, but Jesus Christ was Resurrected, Ascended and He Reigns in the Blessed Trinity in His Human Glorious Body and all human beings, be these living (saints) or dead (spiritually dead—Satan’s slaves and children), Satan and his devils are then and now subjected to God the Father through the Glorious Son of Man. In Revelation 5:13 it was stated, ‘Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, saying: ‘To Him who sits on the Throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!’.
Ephesians 3:12 stated, ‘In Him and through faith in Him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.’
Ephesians 3:16-19 stated, ‘I pray that out of His Glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this Love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.’
