06-02-2023 Matthew Ch 22 v-3033 No marriage in Heaven after resurrection
Gospel of Matthew Ch 22 v- 30 thru 33
30 “At the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage but are like the angels in heaven. 31 And concerning the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what was said to you by God, 32 ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? He is not the God of the dead but of the living.” 33 When the crowds heard this, they were astonished at his teaching.
Jesus reminds us today what His Father told Moses in Exodus Chapter Three verse six, “I am the God of your father, he continued, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” In the first five books of the Bible also called the Pentateuch, which the Sadducees accepted as the norm for Jewish belief and practice, God speaks even now too all of us of himself as the God of the patriarchs who died centuries ago. He identifies himself in relation to them, the living God for they too are alive.
This might appear no argument for the resurrection, but simply for life after death as conceived in Wisdom 3:1–3. “The souls of the righteous are in the hand of God, and no torment shall touch them. They seemed, in the view of the foolish, to be dead; and their passing away was thought an affliction and their going forth from us, utter destruction. But they are in peace.” But the general thought of early first-century Judaism was not influenced by that conception; for it human immortality was connected with the existence of the body.
We believe in the resurrection of dead of Life Everlasting when we confess Jesus as our Lord and Savior. He makes us clean and expects us to share how each and every soul can find redemption of their sins by confessing He as Lord. Jesus was there when He told Moses to take off his sandals for he was on Holy Ground and continues to be here in your midst helping you to find absolute peace by being the God of all. Our God is a God of the Living and allows us to see Life Eternal by loving goodwill over hostility tolerance over malice community kindness over animosity where love conquers all destructive desires of the heart allowing hope and faith to connect grace as the generosity and benevolence of God forever instilling Truth over terror peace over pestilence. 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.

**No marriage in Heaven after resurrection**
No marriage in Heaven after resurrection
Angelic like we all have won
Raising of the dead concerning
You’ve read not what God says you become
Abraham’s God Am I
Isaac’s God too
Jacob’s God too you can’t deny
God of the living not dead do
Teaching His astonished the entire crew
