The Tree and its Fruits
A reading from the Gospel of Saint Matthew 12, 33 – 40:
Jesus said, “Either declare the tree good and its fruit is good, or declare the tree rotten and its fruit is rotten, for a tree is known by its fruit. You brood of vipers, how can you say good things when you are evil? For from the fullness of the heart the mouth speaks. A good person brings forth good out of a store of goodness, but an evil person brings forth evil out of a store of evil. I tell you, on the day of judgment people will render an account for every careless word they speak. By your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.”
Then some of the scribes and Pharisees said to him, “Teacher, we wish to see a sign from you.” Jesus said to them in reply, “An evil and unfaithful generation seeks a sign, but no sign will be given it except the sign of Jonah the prophet. Just as Jonah was in the belly of the whale three days and three nights, so will the Son of Man be in the heart of the earth three days and three nights. At the judgment the men of Nineveh will arise with this generation and condemn it, because they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and there is something greater that Jonah here. At the judgment the queen of the south will arise with this generation and condemn it, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and there is something greater that Solomon here.”
Tomorrow is the Feast of the Annunciation when the Angel Gabriel came to Our Blessed Mother to announce that She would be the Mother of Jesus, the Savior of the world. The angel wanted an answer from Our Dear Mother Mary and She gave a complete “yes” to do the will of the Father. Tomorrow the Blessed Mother will come and visit me as She does every year on March 25th.
Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words, “You will all be tested My brother Melvin, and all My brothers and sisters who walk with Me every day. You know that a tree is good if it gives good fruit. It is bad if it gives bad fruit. It is the same with everyone of you. If you produce good results then you are a good person, but if you produce bad results then you are an evil person. You have to look at what you are doing and see if it is good or not. A person who gets angry and wants to kill his enemy is surely not doing something good. If another steals the property of another is surely doing evil. If one commits adultery, that person is not of good stock and he or she will be condemned. I call you all to do what is good and you will be in heaven one day.
Some people do not want to believe in Me unless they see a sign that shows that I am divine. I did many miracles when I was on earth such as healing the sick, chasing evil spirits, raising the dead and healing lepers. Yet many refused to see these miracles as coming from God. The great miracle which I gave My followers is that I died on the cross and was buried for three days, then I rose from the dead never to die again. My resurrection is My greatest miracle and no one has the power to do such a thing. May My resurrection be to you all the proof that I am the Son of God, your Savior and your Lord. You need to believe in Me in order to be saved. Come then, follow Me and I will bring you with Me in heaven. I love you all.”
