  • They Tremble AT His Word...Isaiah 66 pt 4

    And Hilkiah the high priest said unto Shaphan the scribe, I have found the book of the law in the house of the Lord. And Hilkiah gave the book to Shaphan, and he read it. And Shaphan the scribe came to the king, and brought the king word again, and said, Thy servants have gathered the money that was found in the house, and have delivered it into the hand of them that do the work, that have the oversight of the house of the Lord. And Shaphan the scribe shewed the king, saying, Hilkiah the priest hath delivered me...

    Sin takes place after someone purposes to go against the commandments in their mind. The process of sin begins in our head (mind, heart, spirit)....... James 1:14 - But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. James 1:15 - Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.

    The Power of Repentance to Rewrite the Record Msgr. Charles Pope • July 28, 2017 • This animated short contrasts the consuming quality of envy, anger, and hate with the overwhelming power of love and forgiveness. It also depicts the possibility of repentance upon recognizing the damage caused.In the video, a little girl’s written resentments of her older sister spring forth from her diary to wreak their havoc. Witnessing the frightening result and trying to halt the damage, the young girl tears the passages from her journal. She then attempts to create a repentant, loving message from the shredded...

    In all my years in the priesthood, the topic of Fatima, as so many people like Fr. Gruner and the Fatima Crusader, and many other authors too many to count, have made the central focus on the Consecration of Russia to Our Lady's Immaculate Heart with a close secondary focus on the Third Secret. Neither of which will get any body to Heaven. My priestly function and Jesus Christ's mission center on the salvation of souls. Therefore, the more important part of what Our Lady had to say to the three seers in 1917 at Fatima was just to one...
  • Tish Ba'Av, or True Repentence? ...Zechariah pt 10

    In the fourth year of King Darius, the word of the Lord came to Zechariah on the fourth day of the ninth month, the month of Kislev. The people of Bethel had sent Sharezer and Regem-Melek, together with their men, to entreat the Lord by asking the priests of the house of the Lord Almighty and the prophets, Should I mourn and fast in the fifth month, as I have done for so many years?(Zechariah 7:1-3)Notice that Zechariah carefully dates this prophecy, rooting it in a historical incident, two years after the night of visions of Zechariah 1-6. A delegation...
  • After 70 years...Zechariah pt 1

    Then the angel of the Lord answered and said, O Lord of hosts, how long wilt thou not have mercy on Jerusalem and on the cities of Judah, against which thou hast had indignation these threescore and ten years? Zechariah 1:12Zechariah was a prophet in the time of the restoration of Israel, being one of the meager company of Jews who came back into the land after the seventy year Babylonian Captivity had ended.He began prophesying about the year 520 BC. It is interesting to note that currently we are approaching another 70 anniversary for Israel, for in our day,...
  • The Tenant Farmers...Vineyard Parables pt 7

    And he began to speak unto them by parables. A certain man planted a vineyard, and set an hedge about it, and digged a place for the winefat, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country. And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a servant, that he might receive from the husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard. And they caught him, and beat him, and sent him away empty. And again he sent unto them another servant; and at him they cast stones, and wounded him in the head,...
  • The Vineyard of the Lord of Hosts...vineyard parables 3

    What could have been done more to my vineyard, that I have not done in it? wherefore, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, brought it forth wild grapes? And now go to; I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard: I will take away the hedge thereof, and it shall be eaten up; and break down the wall thereof, and it shall be trodden down: And I will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned, nor digged; but there shall come up briers and thorns: I will also command the clouds that they...

    Now will I sing to my wellbeloved a song of my beloved touching his vineyard. My wellbeloved hath a vineyard in a very fruitful hill: And he fenced it, and gathered out the stones thereof, and planted it with the choicest vine, and built a tower in the midst of it, and also made a winepress therein: and he looked that it should bring forth grapes, and it brought forth wild grapes. And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem, and men of Judah, judge, I pray you, betwixt me and my vineyard. What could have been done more to my vineyard,...

    The next two Sundays will probably be the most important two Sundays in the life of our country. This country is standing at a fork in the road. We do not need a political solution to the crisis we find ourselves in. We need a SPIRITUAL one. Many are walking around and they seem without hope, but all hope is not lost, not by a long shot. I really believe God can turn this nation aroundbecause I know all things are possible with God. Join us as we join churches all across the country in The National Week of Repentance....

    We are Christians. Let's teach America and the World about Repentance and Forgiveness. From today's Old Testament Reading-- 2 Kings 5:14-17, "His flesh became again like the flesh of a little child, and he was clean of his leprosy.".....Someone out there, ask Donald J. Trump (as a Christian to Ask for Forgiveness). Then, we can all move on from these terrible words uttered 11 years ago. Remember, Donald uttered terrible words and his heart was in a bad place. They were words. No one died as in Bengazi, due to the selfish acts of Hillary. Hillary has not admitted to...
  • What Is Repentance?

    09/14/2016 12:01:58 PM PDT · by amessenger4god · 10 replies ^ | 9/12/16 | Gary
    What is repentance? Is it turning from sin? Is it not sinning? Is it reforming one's life? Is it getting cleaned up first, before coming to Christ? No word causes greater trepidation and uncertainty among those considering a decision of faith and no word causes greater fear and confusion among those already in the Church. This word has caused me some of the greatest angst in my life, largely because of how I've understood it: turning from sin, reforming my ways, being perfect. Yet I continue to fail. Daily. This incredible dichotomy exists in my mind between the biblical...
  • Which is Better: Repentance or Moral Effort?

    02/22/2016 1:38:05 PM PST · by Armen Hareyan · 26 replies ^ | Feb. 22, 2016 | Armen Hareyan
    When people fail in doing good and make bad choices some of them feel shame, others try to cover it and hide the shame. Those who hide it, promise to make an effort not to do it again. The promise of a moral effort is a good thing, but is it enough? But how can you say that you will try harder if you do not fill any remorse or repentance for the wrong you have done? See what Father Stephen Freeman writes in this article titled "When Words Fail." The promise to try harder, to work more, to be...
  • Two Types of Sorrows: Beware of the 2nd Type

    Sometimes sorrow clouds your heart and you don't know where it comes from. It seems that everything is in place: house is OK, everything is good in the family or relatives, the job situation is fine, health is good, but a certain type of unknown sorrow clouds your heart. What is it? (Also see: What Should You Ask in Your Prayers) Apostle Paul in his 2nd letter to Corinthians talks about two types of sorrows. They are: Godly SorrowWorldly Sorrow Godly sorrow is a good one. It is useful and leads to repentance. Godly sorrow clouds your heart and nourishes...

    There was a man in the Old Testament whose name was Jonah. God told him to do something, but he run away and thought he could hide from the presence of God. Then God commanded a big fish to swallow him. Miraculously, he survived in the belly of the fish for three days. During these three days he did three things: He realized he was wrong.He repented for his disobedience to God.He believed that God can still help him and prayed to God with faith. The Scripture says “And the Lord commanded the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry...

    God and God Alone: A Homily for the 29th Sunday of the Year By: Msgr. Charles PopeThe Gospel today contains lots of interesting juxtapositions: hatred for Jesus but grudging respect for him,  real questions versus rhetorical ones, politics and faith, duties to Caesar and duties to God. The word  “juxtaposition” is from the Latin juxta (meaning “near”) and positio (meaning “place or position”). Hence juxtaposition is the placing of two things near to each other in order to see how they are similar and yet different.  In English, usually a juxtaposition emphasizes differences more than similarities.Let’s look at these one...
  • The Unrepenting Repenter

    03/21/2015 2:38:59 PM PDT · by RnMomof7 · 7 replies
    The Unrepenting Repenter by Jim Elliff The believer in Christ is a lifelong repenter. He begins with repentance and continues in repentance. (Rom. 8:12-13) David sinned giant sins but fell without a stone at the mere finger of the prophet because he was a repenter at heart (2 Sam. 12:7-13). Peter denied Christ three times but suffered three times the remorse until he repented with bitter tears (Mt. 26:75). Every Christian is called a repenter, but he must be a repenting repenter. The Bible assumes the repentant nature of all true believers in its instruction on church...
  • The Rationale for Wrath

    A cartoon depicted Noahs ark surrounded by desperate people drowning in the water, begging for help. The rains were coming down hard while Noah and his family were safe inside. On the outside of the ark was a "smiley face" with the words, "Smile, God Loves You."Are you sure God loves everybody? John the Baptist didnt think so. He said, "He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him" (Jn. 3:36). Why is God justified in having wrath toward...
