Destiny of Glory
Please read the passage below from the Letter to the Romans 8:18-27); St Paul wrote:
I consider that the sufferings of this present time are as nothing compared with the glory to be revealed for us. For creation awaits with eager expectation the revelation of the children of God; for creation was made subject to futility, not of its own accord but because of the one who subjected it, in hope that creation itself would be set free from slavery to corruption and share in the glorious freedom of the children of God. We know that all creation is groaning in labor pains even until now; and not only that, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, we also groan within ourselves as we wait for adoption, the redemption of our bodies. For in hope we were saved. Now hope that sees for itself is not hope. For who hopes for what one sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait with endurance. In the same way, the Spirit too comes to the aid of our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but the Spirit itself intercedes with inexpressible groanings. And the one who searches hearts knows what is the intention of the Spirit, because it intercedes for the holy ones according to God’s will.
What a beautiful warm day we had yesterday; it was sunny the whole day. We should have more sun again today. I am getting better but at times I start coughing again and I am afraid that the flu is coming back. Please pray that this is not the case. I went to Summerside yesterday to visit some people who needed prayers. I pray that the Lord will help them.
(Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Redeemer given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,)
“May you be filled with hope, My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters scattered all over the world. There are many people today who have discarded the hope I gave them. As you know, hope is a gift from your Lord to help you live in expectation of all that I have promised you. Yes, I have promised you the glory of heaven if you follow all that I have told you. Pray then and open your heart to receive this gift from Me. Exercise your hope every day. You were all created for a special destiny and if you do not reach this destiny you have wasted your life on earth. In order to achieve your destiny you need to work together with Me. You know on your own you cannot do anything good. You need My help and I am willing to give you all the help you need if you ask Me. Those who have hope can face any problem, any sickness, any deception or any mistake they have done. They also can face any danger without fear, knowing that I am with them to help them do what they normally cannot do. Exercise, My friends, every day your faith, hope and love and you will not fail to achieve your destiny, which is union with Me in heaven forever. It will be My joy to receive you in your heavenly home one day. I bless you all.”
