Peter’s Speech

Peter’s Speech

A reading from the Acts of the Apostles 10, 34 – 43:

Then Peter proceeded to speak and said, “In truth, I see that God
shows no partiality. Rather, in every nation whoever fears him and
acts uprightly is acceptable to Him. You know the word that He sent to
the Israelites as He proclaimed peace through Jesus Christ, who is
Lord of all, what has happened all over Judea, beginning in Galilee
after the baptism that John preached, how God anointed Jesus of
Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power. He went about doing good and
healing all those oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him. We are
witnesses of all that He did both in the country of the Jews and in
Jerusalem. They put Him to death by hanging Him on a tree. This man
God raised on the third day and granted that He be visible, not to all
the people, but to us, the witnesses chosen by God in advance, who ate
and drank with Him after He rose from the dead. He commissioned us to
preach to the people and testify that He is the one appointed by God
as judge of the living and the dead. To Him all the  prophets bear
witness, that everyone who believes in Him will receive forgiveness of
sins through His name.”

We are having beautiful and sunny days and the temperature is warm. I
thank the Lord for these nice days. The Island Government has written
to me that I owe them $1,200 in taxes. I do not have any money to pay
this bill. They give me a few weeks to pay this money and if I do not
pay it, then they will drive me out of my house and sell the house. I
am praying every day that the Lord helps me to find some people to
give me the money that is needed. Please send me what you can afford
and pray that I can get this money next week. Thank you very much.

Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior. Jesus helped
me by giving me the words that follow, “I bless you My brother Melvin
and all My brothers and sisters who have great love for Me, who pray
every day and love to go to church at least every Sunday. From the
reading above, you know that I was the one who selected Peter to be an
Apostle and I named him the Head of My Church. He went to many places
and preached to the people as I had told him. He spoke very well about
Me, how I was baptized by Saint John the Baptist and received the Holy
Spirit. He wrote that I went about teaching the people and healing all
the sick. The Jews are the ones who put Me to death by hanging Me on
the cross. Peter said that I was raised from the death after three
days and I remained with the Apostles for forty days teaching them and
showing them that I am truly risen from the dead. My dear friends, I
am calling you all to come and believe in Me and follow Me every day
of your life. Then I will come and get you and bring you to heaven
where you will live in union with Me for ever. I bless you all.”

Peter Restores Tabitha to Life

September 25, 2017

Peter Restores Tabitha to Life

A reading from the Acts of the Apostles 9, 36 – 43:

“Now in Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha (which translated
means Dorcas). She was completely occupied with good deeds and
almsgiving. Now during those days she fell sick and died, so after
washing her, they laid her out in a room upstairs. Since Lydda was
near Joppa,  the disciples, hearing that Peter was there, sent two men
to him with the request, “Please come to us without delay.” So Peter
got up and went with them. When he arrived, they took him to the room
upstairs where all the widows came to him weeping and showing him the
tunics and cloaks this Dorcas had made while she was with them. Peter
sent them all out and knelt down and prayed. Then he turned to her
body and said, “Tabitha, rise up.” She opened her eyes, saw Peter, and
sat up. He gave her his hand and raised her up, and when he had called
the holy ones and the widows, he presented her alive. This became
known all over Joppa, and many came to believe in the Lord. And he
stayed a long time in Joppa with Simon, a tanner.”

It was cloudy all day Sunday and we got a bit of rain in the morning.
It was not windy and not cold. I thank all those who sent me some
money last week, but I am still short of $300. I do not have any
heating oil yet and it is cold at night. Please send me some money via
Paypal and I will be so happy to receive this money which I need as
soon as possible. May the Lord bless you and may He fill you with His
love and grace.

Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior. Jesus gave me
these words which are written below: “I bless you My brother Melvin
and all My brothers and sisters who have great faith in Me and who
pray every day and love to go to Holy Mass regularly.
From the quotation from the Acts of the Apostles, you see the   great
work that Saint Peter, the Apostle, did in a small town called Joppa.
There was this great follower of mine named Dorcas, who did great work
for the people there. However, one day she died and they called Saint
Peter to come over. He was not far away at a village called Lydda.
Peter came over and the people of Joppa told him everything that had
happened to this holy woman. So he went upstairs to the room were her
body was. He asked the people to leave the room and then he knelt down
and prayed. After his prayer, he spoke to Dorcas these words, “Get
up.” She opened her eyes and sat by the side of her bed. Then Saint
Peter called the people and they came and were full of joy to see the
dead woman alive again. The news spread throughout the whole town and
many became My followers. I am still healing people today for I do not
want them to suffer and die before their time. I call you all to
believe in Me as your Savior who loves you with all My heart. I love
you all.”

Peter Heals Aeneas at Lydda

September 17, 2017

Peter Heals Aeneas at Lydda

A reading from the Acts of the Apostles 9, 32 – 35.

As Peter was passing through every region, he went down to the holy
ones living in Lydda. There he found a man named Aeneas, who had been
confined to bed for eight years, for he was paralyzed. Peter said to
him, “Aeneas, Jesus Christ heals you. Get up and make your bed.” He
got  up at once. And all the inhabitants of Lydda and Sharon saw him,
and they turned to the Lord.

We had a beautiful sunny day today and it was not cold. However,
tomorrow we will have some rain  for a change. We will have rain for
the next three days.
My friend, Francis, who went to the Philippines for two months phoned
me today and he will come back on Monday next week. I do not have any
money to go and get him at the airport. If some can help me I would be
very happy indeed. I would need at least $50.00 to go there and come
back. I will need more money to buy food and to get heating oil. Thank
you all of  you who will help me.

Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior. Jesus gave me
the words written below: “I love you My brother Melvin and all My
brothers and sisters who believe in Me with all your hearts. The
passage from the Bible today shows how St. Peter healed this man who
had been paralyzed for eight years. He simply said these words,
“Aeneas, Jesus Christ heals you. Get up and make your bed.” With these
words this man was completely healed. He immediately got up and did
what he was told. Yes, when I was on earth, I healed many, many people
for I have all power. Anyone who believes in Me and has received the
gift of healing can do the same as I did. I call you again, My
friends, to pray and go to church regularly, so that your faith may
grow every day. I love you and I bless you.”
