Denial of the Parousia
A reading from the Second Letter of Saint Peter 3, 1 – 10:
This is now, beloved, the second letter I am writing to you; through them by way of reminder I am trying to stir up your sincere disposition, to recall the words previously spoken by the holy prophets and the commandments of the Lord and Saviour through your apostles. Know this first of all, that in the last days scoffers will come to scoff, living according to their own desires and saying, “Where is the promise of his coming? From the time when our ancestors fell asleep, everything has remained as it was from the beginning of creation.” They deliberately ignore the fact that the heaven existed of old and earth was formed out of water and through water by the word of God; through these the world that then existed was destroyed, deluged with water. The present heaven and earth have been reserved by the same word for fire, kept for the day of judgment and of destruction of the godless.
But do not ignore this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years and a thousand years like one day. The Lord does not delay his promise, as some regard “delay,” but he is patient with you, not wishing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a mighty roar and the elements will be dissolved by fire, and the earth and everything done on it will be found out.
We had a very cloudy week with plenty of rain. It should be better tomorrow as we will have sunshine for sometime at least. We did not have any snow yet but there was snow in many parts of Canada during the last days. I thank the Lord that my heath is good and that I am still strong. I pray for all of you every day and I pray on the phone with the many people who phone me who are sick.
Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Redeemer given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,
“I bless you My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters who look forward to My coming at the end of the world. You know that I will return on earth with the angels to judge the living and dead. Saint Peter in his second letter wrote about My Second Coming. It is true that some people do not believe that I will return but these are not following the truth. They are with the devil and believe only what the devil tells them. It is written in the Bible that I will return one day although nobody knows the date or the month or the year. So you should be prepared every day for My coming. You must repent of your sins and come to follow Me, pray every day and go to church at least every Sunday. After the judgment, then the whole earth will be destroyed by fire. At the end there will be nothing left on earth. The people will be either in heaven if they followed Me or in hell if they refused to follow Me. Come then My friends and walk with Me and you will come to heaven with Me and live there in great happiness forever. I bless you all.”
