Are you ready to be Brought to Him? 3 rd Sunday of Babah 1730
Doubts = receive nothing 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways. Jas 1:6-8
(St. John Chrysostom) For he who after sinning has practiced repentance, is a worthy object not of grief but of congratulations, having passed over into the choir of the righteous.
The Pauline 13 Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. 14 Let all that you do be done with love.15 I urge you, brethren—you know the household of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and that they have devoted themselves to the ministry of the saints 16 that you also submit to such, and to everyone who works and labors with us. 1 Cor 16:13-16
Catholic Epistle Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Jas 4:7,8
Acts Now therefore, why do you test God by putting a yoke on the neck of the disciples which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear? But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved in the same manner as they.” Then all the multitude kept silent and listened to Barnabas and Paul declaring how many miracles and wonders God had worked through them among the Gentiles. Acts 15:10 - 12
Psalm I have become as a wonder to many, But You are my strong refuge. Let my mouth be filled with Your praise And with Your glory all the day. Ps 71:7,8
First option !!! Then one was brought to Him who was demon- possessed, blind and mute; and He healed him, so that the blind and mute man both spoke and saw. Matt 12:22
Option one reward But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you. Matt 12:28
Second option And all the multitudes were amazed and said, “Could this be the Son of David?” Matt 12:23
Option 2 reward 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; Jas 1:6,7
Third Option Now when the Pharisees heard it they said, “This fellow does not cast out demons except by Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons.” Matt 12:24
Option 3 reward !! But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand. If Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand? Matt 12:25,26
Chapter Fourteen ( Didachi) And when coming together on the Lord's own day, break bread and give thanks after confessing your transgressions. In that manner, your sacrifice will be pure. And do not let anyone coming with a quarrel against a brother join you until they get reconciled, in order that your sacrifice is not impure. For this has been spoken of by the Lord, "in every place and time offer me a pure sacrifice, for I am a great King," says the Lord, "and My name is wonderful among the nations."
Oneness in Him 10 that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him. 11 In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, Eph 1:10,11
One or no glory 22 And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one : Jn 17:22
(St. John Chrysostom) We, who were not worthy of earthly glory, are lifted up to the kingdom of heaven; enter heavens, and take our place before the divine throne.
