"Let Go and Let God"

In John 6:40 Jesus declared, "For my Father's will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day." Overcome your fears and let God through the Holy Spirit mold you and rule your life. Be happy as you trust in Jesus, follow his teachings and God will bless your life abundantly. And in 1 Corinthians 5:16-17, the Holy Spirit in Saint Paul tells us, “Be joyful always, pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

In John 8:12, Jesus spoke again to the people saying, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life." Make a difference in this world by helping others know Jesus in you and see the light ... Let your light shine brightly now!

And in Matthew 6:33, Jesus said, " Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you." Live with true peace, see and feel the blessings and fulfillment that come upon your life when you do what is good for others as compared when you judge and cause pain in others which can bring so much stress, conflict and even illness in your life."

To Our Youth and The Weary, "Hope and Trust in God and Be Generous"

Herewith is a related inspirational message from the letter of St. Paul to the young Timothy (1Timothy 6:17-19), which states, “Command those who are rich in the present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.”

God’s awesome works in God’s awesome creation and the Messiah in Jesus - Commentary on High-Speed Captures - a gallery on Flickr

God's Awesome Creation

High-Speed Captures - a gallery on Flickr

See these great high speed capture photos on our link above.

Out of God's creation comes out man's creativity and ingenuity.  And with man's talents and prowess is the affirmation of Our Almighty God's grandeur as He is the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.

Do not all of what you have seen in our link show God's awesome power in His foremost creation which is man supported by nature, God’s other complementing creation?

Without God, how can all these happen? Clearly, man cannot do all these alone.

Go beyond physics and science, and open your heart and spirit, you will see and understand what I mean (watch interesting videos and web links along highlighted phrases).

If you dig deeper into the Holy Bible and seek its true meaning, it all spells one thing, that there is only one God who has created us all, gave us His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to save us all from our sins and lead us to life eternal.  And in John 4:24, Jesus declared, “God is spirit, and His worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.”

Consider the following truths:

The Messiah in Jesus

It is no wonder that despite the wondrous miracles that Jesus had done in the latter part of his life, many people were still not convinced that he was the Messiah as prophesied by the prophets.  They even condemned him to die crucified along with two thieves.

Does this not manifest that evil is in our midst and it all started in the Garden of Eden, when, Satan was successful in alluring Adam and Eve to disobey God by eating of the forbidden fruit?

And now with Christ's passion and death on the cross, his glorious resurrection and ascension into heaven, he has empowered us to defy evil and not be lured to his evil ways if we only trust and fully believe in him.     

In Philippians 1:21, Saint Paul writes as he rejoices in God’s words and in his overwhelming faith and love in Jesus, “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.”

Further, in Philippians 2:3-16, Saint Paul and Timothy, by the Grace of God and through the Holy Spirit reveals the need to live and love for others, “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus."

In Romans 8:31, St. Paul writes in assurance, "If God is for us, who can be against us?”

And if you read the Holy Bible, the Old Testament is all about the covenant of God and man about the coming of God's Only Begotten Son to save us from the original sin, that of Adam and Eve, and the New Testament is the fulfillment of God's greatest gift to man, His Son Jesus, our Lord and Savior who is the Lord or Lords and the King of Kings.

Jesus is the "Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world." There is redemption at the moment we start to believe in him and follow him as the true Messiah whom God has sent to save our souls and lead us to life everlasting, as he has shown in his life and has proclaimed his power over life and death.

The Divinity of Christ

In Luke 2:13-20, upon the birth of the baby Jesus, the angel of the Lord with a great company of heavenly host said to the shepherds living out in the nearby fields, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on who his favor rests,” and they all went to Bethlehem to see the child as both Mary and Joseph were amazed how the shepherds learned all this through an angel of the Lord. “And they returned glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen.”

When Jesus discreetly took three of his trusted apostles, Peter, James and his brother John to a high mountain, he was suddenly transfigured into divine form seen with his face shone like the sun in his white shining clothes talking to Moses and Elijah, who appeared out of nowhere in glorious splendor.

The Transfiguration was the second time that God's voice acknowledged to glorify his Son, the first time was during Jesus' baptism through the Holy Spirit with John the Baptist at the River Jordan, in Matthew 3:16-17, “At that moment, heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, ‘This is my Son, whom I love, with him I am well pleased.’”

Jesus, Moses and Elijah were overheard by the three of Christ's apostles discussing God’s plan for redemption with Jesus’ impending death on the cross. Peter said to him in his excitement of what they saw, as stated in Luke 9:33-36, “Master, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters – one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.”

Then a voice came from the cloud, saying, “This is my Son, whom I have chosen; listen to him.” When the voice had spoken, they found that Jesus was alone.

And Jesus told them not to tell anyone of what they saw “not until the Son of Man is risen from the dead”.

Three apostles witnessed the transfiguration that their succeeding account of what they saw would be believed and to strengthen the hearts of the disciples whose concept of the crucifixion of Christ was one of denial.

That they not stand the way of Jesus’ fulfilling heaven’s plan to redeem man through his death, resurrection and ascension. And that we may learn to carry our own cross, deny ourselves by being humble and selfless in our efforts to lead others to him in this life that they too may see God’s promise of eternal life (read Luke 9:22-23).

From the Acts of the Apostles, 10:33-38, “Peter proceeded to speak to those gathered in the house of Cornelius, saying: ‘In truth, I see that God shows no partiality. Rather, in very nation whoever fears him and acts uprightly is acceptable to him. You know the word that he sent to the Israelites as he proclaimed peace through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all, what has happened all over Judea, beginning in Galilee after the baptism that John preached, how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power. He went about doing and healing all those oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.’”

“I and the father are one”. In John 14: 11-14 Jesus added, “Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me… I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.”

Only Jesus can claim this and he alone has claimed it with conviction.  His overwhelming power over evil has countless times seen manifest on earth through his followers and former non-believers, who now enjoy the gift of faith and the fruits of God's love in Jesus.

In John 6:53-58, Jesus said to the crowd while teaching in the synagogue with some grumbling and unbelieving Jews around him:

“I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him. Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me. This is the bread that came down from heaven. Your forefathers ate manna and dies, but he who feeds on this bread will live forever.”

In the Holy Sacrament of the Mass, through the consecration of the Holy Eucharist, Catholic Christian faithfuls humble themselves before the Lord Jesus Christ with a cleansed soul as they partake in his body and blood through the bread and wine that was offered.

With this sacrament, the covenant of God in us through Jesus is further strengthened, our faith, belief and witnessing in him as part of his flock renewed.

What greater joy can be felt than to welcome once again God's spirit with the body and blood of Jesus in your heart flowing through your veins revitalized, energized and healed in the Holy Spirit?  

Nonetheless, we need to follow this up with works and good deeds.  Let us be guided in James 2:26, as he said, “As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.”

Even before the world was made, God had already chosen us to be his through our union with Christ, as in Ephesians 1:4 (echoed from similar messages in Isaiah 49:16 and Jeremiah 1:5). And those who believe and do what God teaches will be blessed.

Still, we should not lose heart but try to win the unbelievers that they too may see the light and be healed. As Jesus has said to his apostles (Matthew 13:14-15), “In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah,

“You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving; For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.”

Jesus encourages us to spread his words and teaching, as in Matthew 28:19-20, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Healing in Jesus

Have you ever noticed how our health is affected once we get carried away negatively by our emotions and reactions?

But the more we practice Christ's teachings of love, hope, faith, humility, mercy and forgiveness, the more we gain inner peace and happiness?  And through this, as we are cleansed by the Holy Spirit, do we not heal faster and even help our love ones heal faster too?

[Read on:  Goodbye to Heart Disease?  See How, and Nitric Oxide]

Is this not the message that God wants to relay to each and everyone of us, to have faith in Him and in Christ's teachings that we can better enjoy this life on earth and to prepare ourselves for life eternal?

From the Book of Ezekiel 18:3-32, it is written, “Therefore, O house of Israel, I will judge you, each one according to his ways, declares the Sovereign Lord. Repent! Turn away from your offenses; then sin will not be your downfall. Rid yourselves of all the offenses you have committed, and get a new heart and a new spirit. Why will you die, O house of Israel? For I take no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Sovereign Lord. Repent and live!”

Now, more than ever, not only Hebrews, but all people of all other faith and religion who wish to know more about Jesus the True Messiah and the Son of God, you are herein enjoined and invited to pray for further guidance and enlightenment through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, the true Redeemer, as we open our spirit and welcome him in our hearts, then see and share the light in this site or click on RCIA (You can email me via edwinoelt@yahoo.com).

Why do we have to harden our hearts and deny Christ in God when we all will one day die and be humbled like the soil of the earth, stepped on and trampled by others and feasted on by nature, and nothing, yes nothing, will we be able to bring with us except our souls and our past which will be the basis on the Day of Judgment?

Why not rather live in truth and in love, and by following Christ's words, we may have true peace and happiness that we can share with others, for the love of man, and for the love of God in Christ Jesus?  Whence, we may one day enjoy the fruits of our love in God's Kingdom onto eternal life.

In Psalm 95:8-11, it states, “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did at Meribah (means quarreling), as you did that day at Massah (means testing) in the desert, where your fathers tested and tried me, though they had seen what I did. For forty years I was angry with that generation. I said, “They are a people whose hearts go astray, and they have not known my ways.” So I declared an oath in my anger, “They shall never enter my rest.”

Prayer to Welcome Jesus in Our Hearts

"Grant that I may know you dear God through Jesus, your Son, as I open my heart and spirit to you.  Fill me up with your love that your Holy Spirit may come upon me with your power, care, protection, kindness, mercy and forgiveness that with you I may be cleansed from anything evil or unworthy of your presence, and that with you I may be healed, learn to forgive and be renewed that I may see and share your love and your light with others and that I may have peace in myself.  Amen."

... recite this prayer, as I so believe that prayers can move mountains, every morning when you wake up, anytime during the day and in the evening before you sleep, rest assured Jesus will reveal himself through the Holy Spirit in you.

Just look around you and see, and feel as you fully open and surrender your spirit to our Almighty God and Creator, and through His only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, you will feel oneness with him and with all of his creation.

Indeed, we have an awesome God in an awesome creation. Amen.

We do appreciate your thoughts and your comments.
