Live by Faith in the Lord (2)
A reading from Saint Paul’s Letter to the Romans 10, 14 – 21:
But how can they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how can they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone to preach? And how can people preach, unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring the good news!” But not everyone has heeded the good news; for Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed what was heard from us? Thus faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the word of Christ. But I ask, did they not hear? Certainly they did; for “Their voice has gone forth to all the earth, and their words to the end of the world.”
But I ask, did not Israel understand? First Moses says:
“I will make you jealous of those who are not a nation; with a senseless nation I will make you angry.” Then Isaiah speaks boldly and says: “I was found by those who were not seeking me; I revealed myself to those who were not asking of me.”
But regarding Israel he says, “All day long I stretched out my hands to a disobedient and contentious people.”
The money for the construction of the Monasteries and the Shrine is supposed to be coming very soon. But there are always some who are working with the evil one and causing trouble. There are some who are asking for $3,000 after they tried to get this money which is for Our Blessed Mother for what She asked and what Our Lord asked. My lawyer said that this money has to be paid within seven days so that I can receive my money. I do not have any money at this time. If anyone can help me, I would be very pleased indeed. May the Lord bless you all.
Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,
“You should be thankful My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters who have received the gift of faith. Show in your daily lives that you believe and that you pray regularly and you help the poor and the sick.
Saint Paul in the reading of today is worried about his people, the Jews. They have all heard about Me, their Savior, but they did not accept Me. You know what they did when I was living in Israel. They did not accept My teaching and they spread their negative teaching all over the country. At the end they arrested Me in the Garden of Gethsemane and beat Me severely and at the end I was killed by nailing Me to the cross. Many of the leaders of the Jewish Nation were pleased that I was gone and they hoped that they would not hear about Me again. Unfortunately for them, I came back to live after three days. They knew that My body was gone from the tomb and the soldiers they had put there at the tomb to make sure that people did not come to steal My body, rain in fright when they saw Me alive and coming from the tomb. Even today the majority of the Israelites do not believe in Me although there are some from the very beginning who believed in Me and followed Me. Pray that soon the Jewish people will accept Me as their Savior and Lord. I love them and I died for them but now I want them to accept Me and live according to what I told them. I bless you all.”
P.S. What a beautiful sunny day we had today. I thank the Lord for this day.
