05-16-2023 Matthew Ch 21 v-23 Authority this given to you by who




Gospel of Matthew Ch 21 v- 23

23 When (Jesus) had come into the temple area, the chief priests and the elders of the people approached him as he was teaching and said, “By what authority are you doing these things? And who gave you this authority?”


Who gives Jesus His authority? If only we’d believe. Authority comes from the Divine Will of God Almighty! Amen. Once you surrender to Him Who rules the world, then you too can find Him dwelling in your soul to accomplish everything life has to offer. We accomplish this by calling on The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit mimicking His Word seeking Him as the Gospel one lives by love, faith and hope of all things good. He has given you the authority to accomplish goodwill or mayhem where the free will experienced links you to Him and His Divine Will of Salvation. Once you learn that He will deny you if you deny Him, then every step you take is sought after as the Will of God always looking to Him for guidance found in His Word, found in His Spirit, found in His Son that resonates all of these things as One in Three persons. We can hear Him speaking to our beings by the whispers of Salvation knowing the seven Heavenly Virtues that create chastity, temperance, charity, diligence, patience, kindness, and humility to live the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy by the Authority of Truth. I will list them often for they are to remind us of how to practice, pray and proclaim Jesus as our Authority to share peace in every situation every need every purpose for Life Eternal.


The SEVEN CORPORAL WORKS OF MERCY are Feeding the Hungry, Giving Drink to the Thirsty, Clothing the Naked, Sheltering the Homeless, Visiting the Imprisoned, Comforting the Sick and Burying the Dead. The SEVEN SPIRITUAL WORKS OF MERCY are Teaching the Ignorant, Praying for the Living and the Dead, Correcting Sinners, Counseling Those in Doubt, Consoling the Sorrowful, Bearing Wrongs Patiently and Forgiving Wrongs Willingly. 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 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 the intersession of our Holy Mother for the sister of Jackie her name is Loreen. 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.
