Destiny of Glory
A reading from Saint Paul’s Letter to the Romans (8:14-27):
For those who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God. For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you received a spirit of adoption, through which we cry, “Abba, Father!” The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if only we suffer with him so that we may also be glorified with him.
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.
We are approaching Canada Day, so let us pray for all the Canadians that they may have great faith and walk daily with the Lord. Canada Day is on July 1st.
Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,
“I want you all to be children of God My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters who live in every country of the world. If you are truly the children of God then you can surely call God your Father and that is what He is. All the children of God are destined for heavenly glory one day. Have great love, My brothers and sisters, for your Heavenly Father, who created you and is helping you every day and have great love too for Me your Brother and Savior. Do not forget God the Holy Spirit who is at work in all of you to bring you to holiness and to heaven one day.
“You all have a great destiny and I do not want anyone of you to miss that destiny. It is by remaining faithful to your Heavenly Father and to Me that you will receive this eternal glory. Walk with Me every day and call upon Me at all times to help you to overcome any temptations you may have. I am there to help you if you call Me. I love you all and I bless you.”
