  1. A Conversation About The Merciful God

    A conversation about the Merciful God With a Despairing Soul. Do not be absorbed in your misery – you are still too weak to speak of it – but, rather; gaze on My Heart filled with goodness, and be imbued with My sentiments. Strive for meekness and humility; be merciful to others, as I am to you; and, when you feel your strength failing, if you come to the fountain of mercy to fortify your soul, you will not grow weary on your journey--Faustina’s diary(1485) There is no end to God’s...
  2. 2. The Body Of Christ. Formation. What Is The Body Of Christ.

    What is the Body of Christ. God distinguishes between three groups of people in His word that He has purposes for. `Give no offence either to Jews (Israel) or to the Greeks (nations) or to the church (Body of Christ) of God.` (1 Cor. 10: 32) The Body of Christ The Body of Christ is a specific group of people that Christ the Head is forming and is bringing to maturity in Him. The Body of Christ is called - the Ekklesia, meaning the called out ones, called out from Israel and the...
  3. 1. The Body Of Christ. Contents And Overview.

    OVERVIEW `For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body,...` (Phil. 3: 20 & 21) What a wonderful hope we have as believers in the Body of Christ - heaven and glorious bodies. And still more in that we are adopted and accepted in the beloved, having received the Holy Spirit of promise, and are made citizens together with the Lord and other believers....
  4. Who Is First In The Kingdom?

    In today's world it is important to strive to gain credibility and recognition in order to gain influence over others around us. This way people are in a better position to help others who are less educated, have lesser income, or have a lower place in life. That is the way of this world. However, this is not so in the kingdom of heaven for those who claim to be in Christ. God does not care about your wealth, fame, or title. He does not care about how many people you have influence over, how...

  6. Why Do People Go To Church?

    A common term used in today's Christian Religion is to "go to church." However, when put in proper perspective this term makes about as much sense as asking someone how much does the color black weigh. The Church, the Body of Christ, is not a place to go to, but rather it is a true spiritual Body that is made up of all true (born-again) followers of Christ. This is the difference between a church (a manmade building) and the Church (a God made living Body) and they are drastically different...
  7. I Am Hopeful But Ready For A Rough Ride

    I am hopeful but ready for a rough ride As I grow older, I am becoming more aware of my own tendency to make judgments that come from a deep place of fear and anxiety. I guess it has always been so, yet becoming more apparent. I find it infinitely amazing that Jesus forgave all on the cross, an act that is probably the most loving, and truly human act ever accomplished. We are called to that, Christians, yet we know we can't do it on our own. Only when we allow the heart of Christ Jesus to...
  8. What Jesus Teaches About Bread Making

    Bread making is a relatively simple process of mixing together flour, water, and yeast. The yeast is used to release air bubbles into the mix and expand the dough. This process will cause the dough to expand to more than twice its original size. In one of his parables, Jesus used the activation of yeast (leaven) to describe the growth of the kingdom of heaven. “He spoke another parable to them, “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three pecks of flour...

  10. You Are The Light Of The World.” (jesus Tightens The Screws, As He Always Does.)

    “You are the light of the world.” (Jesus tightens the screws, as he always does.) Homily Preached February 9, 2020 by Fr. Cassian OCSO “You are the light of the world.” Last Sunday we heard the words of Simeon as he held the infant Jesus in the Temple: “My eyes have seen a light for revelation to the Gentiles and the glory of your people Israel.” The light Simeon proclaimed is the same light we proclaim at Easter: Christ our Light. Today we hear that we are the light of the world....
  11. Understanding Christ: A Look Through The Book Of Luke - Luke 14

    It was in Mark 6:2 when the crowd beheld the marvelous works of the master that they wondered out aloud and quipped, "what wisdom is this?". This has been my reaction ever since the Luke challenge began, especially as I read through the 14th chapter of Luke as Jesus proceeded to educate the people present at the dinner party of one of the notable Pharisees in the land on what you will call table etiquette at parties Ir simply party etiquette? Whatever you call it there was nothing that...
  12. Muddying The Waters

    Exactly what is the Gospel of the Kingdom all about? We either follow the traditional governance of mankind which is fuelled by self interest OR, we choose to reject that wide path and follow the governance (Kingdom) of the Father which is loving all as self and focusing on the well being of others. Has theology muddled your perspective? If so, have you asked yourself why it might strive to do so, and who as a result may benefit? © ...timothyu
  13. Legalism And Christian Living

    Over the years, the term legalism or being legalistic has been widely used to describe strict guidance and practices in the name of Christ. Hence, to understand what is meant by the term legalism we should begin with a basic definition. Legalism: Strict, literal, or excessive conformity to the law or to a religious moral code. Therefore, Legalists are people who add personal preference to accepted doctrinal teaching, accept these additions as having equal weight with doctrinal teaching, and...
  14. Pondering Proverbs 23 - Costing Your Discipleship

    Proverbs 23:23 ~ Buy truth and do not sell it. Buy wisdom, discipline, and knowledge. Have you ever "costed" your discipleship? If you have, you have sold--giving everything out to buy truth. You do not spend it on yourself ("sell"), but to invest in the Kingdom of God. The truth, as it has come in precious packages of wisdom, discipline, and knowledge, is flavored with the Gospel becomes everything to you. Like a soldier, you fall in line and obey instructions. Over time you can...
  15. Understanding Christ: A Look Through The Book Of Luke - Luke 13

    Luke 13 seems to open on a very tragic account. Then, Luke reports (13:1), “on the same occasion,” some were present who reported to Jesus about the Galileans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. We don’t know any more about this event than is here reported. Apparently, Pilate had sent in his troops to break up a gathering of Galilean Jews that he deemed dangerous. The Roman soldiers did not even respect the fact that the Jews were worshiping God by offering sacrifices....
