04-30-2023 Matthew Ch 19 v-2730 Given up child father mother sisters brothers fall




Gospel of Matthew Ch 19 v- 27 thru 30

27 Then Peter said to him in reply, “We have given up everything and followed you. What will there be for us?” 28 Jesus said to them, “Amen, I say to you that you who have followed me, in the new age, when the Son of Man is seated on his throne of glory, will yourselves sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 29 And everyone who has given up houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or lands for the sake of My Name will receive a hundred times more, and will inherit eternal life. 30 But many who are first will be last, and the last will be first.”


The Lord knew some could not commit. This may mean even your own flesh and blood. This seems hard to fathom; why would a family member forgo Life Eternal? Your guess is as good as mine but I feel the world obviously has everything to do with it. I am fortunate that my mother and father did not give in to the world in the end. My mother remains strong in seeing Jesus as the only way to Heaven and my dad had given in to the Will of the Lord to overcome alcohol and smoking living for His Savior Jesus before he died and entered purgatory! He once admitted to me that it took too long and he was sorry for that. My children have given in to the world and cancelled their father some two years ago. Not willing to forgive my disturbed world induced by a late childhood trauma. You see, someone choked me out and anally raped me which then caused me to live a confused life and I ran from the Name of Jesus until I realized I would only find forgiveness in His Name. It was then and only then was I willing to give up a confused life for a devout life of Charity. I see Charity as the True Name of Jesus My Messiah My King My Lord and My Savior. What you give up for the Lord comes back to you one hundred-fold in more miracles than you can imagine life abundantly in Christ. Your life will be seen as a new meaning and you will look to educate souls on Eternity. Amen.


Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for Boston aka Keith. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. Silence for the prayers of others dealing with the war in Ukraine. In the Holy Spirit we pray our brothers in Kairos especially a prayer for our men in blue. We pray for Holy Mother Church. We pray for our Holy Mother for the sister of Jackie. Daily prayers for our neighbor Thelma. Prayers for a friend and his wife for a baby to be born. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

**Given up child father mother sisters brothers fall**


Replying to Jesus saying Peter

You followed everything given to You

Me followed have you there is nothing sweeter

Glory throne of twelve tribes seated you true


Israel tribes twelve judge you all

Houses given by anyone the call

Given up child father mother sisters brothers fall

Even lands Name Mine sake Life Eternal mall


First will be last and the last first nothing to appall
