06-16-2023 Matthew Ch 24 v-0308 Claiming to be the Messiah many deceived
Gospel of Matthew Ch 24 v- Three thru Eight
3 As (Jesus) was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples approached him privately and said, “Tell us, when will this happen, and what sign will there be of your coming, and of the end of the age?” 4 Jesus said to them in reply, “See that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and they will deceive many. 6 You will hear of wars and reports of wars; see that you are not alarmed, for these things must happen, but it will not yet be the end. 7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be famines and earthquakes from place to place. 8 All these are the beginning of the labor pains.
Many believe we are in the midst of this prophesy Jesus explained as necessary for the world to obtain a guaranteed apocalypse of an ending doom the world has to play to see Salvation of Truth in Jesus come full circle. “Kingdoms against kingdoms nations against nations famines and earthquakes from place to place.” One could argue now that this is happening people are ugly to one another when others think you represent an evil ideology when you want to follow the rule of natural order unwilling to allow someone to live a lie. It is a lie that abortion doesn’t kill a person. It is a lie for a parent o condone a child through adolescence to be a girl when they are boy or a boy when they are a girl. This isn’t evil beliefs it is the Truth of God’s Dominion. How can someone destroy the life of their own child by letting them live a lie and be teased by others. The Lord has given us to right to choose good over evil for it is the good we seek and not the evil of destruction no matter it be the family unit or the body as a whole we believe God created us to serve Him in others sharing Redemption as the cause for goodwill.
Yesterday I was the target of road rage from another. I know I didn’t cut them off or aggressively pass them for they came up on me as I was passing a semi on the right and I tried to be courteous and let them over and go in front of me and they began hitting their brakes over and over gain making me slam on mine or hit them. I guess my window lettering of “God First Pray” as well as “God First all else will fall into place” on the back with a large sticker that reads “Prayer our greatest defense against evil” pissed them off? They rolled their window down too and this kind of scared me thinking they could shoot a gun or throw a bottle or something. I backed off and filmed their actions. The person looked like a woman? But I’m not sure. The tag and description was called in to Florida Highway Patrol and this person even slowed after others passed to make me break again swerving back and fourth. I can see how this could have led to absolute destruction. My truck has a deer bumper on the front. I could have destroyed their little dark blue VW Jetta. But I didn’t. We backed off and prayed for them knowing our God has our back all the way. We do believe he was stopped by FHP just as we were getting off the Turnpike about 15 miles later. Say a prayer for them. Amen.

The Seven Virtues vs The Seven Sins
The Seven Virtues chastity, temperance, charity, diligence, patience, kindness, and humility.
Biblical Reference 2 Peter 1 4-8
4 Through these, he has bestowed on us the precious and very great promises, so that through them you may come to share in the divine nature, after escaping from the corruption that is in the world because of evil desire. 5 For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, virtue with knowledge,6 knowledge with self-control, self-control with endurance, endurance with devotion, 7 devotion with mutual affection, mutual affection with love. 8 If these are yours and increase in abundance, they will keep you from being idle or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The Seven Sins pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath, and sloth.
Biblical Reference Proverbs 6:16-19
16 There are six things the LORD hates, yes, seven are an abomination to him; 17 Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, 18 A heart that plots wicked schemes, feet that are quick to run to evil, 19 The false witness who utters lies, and the one who sows discord among kindred.

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. We pray for Holy Mother Church. Prayers for a friend and his wife for a baby to be born. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

**Claiming to be the Messiah many deceived**
Olives Mount sitting was He then
Privately Jesus was approached by disciples
Destroyed temple will happen when
Coming signs of ages end who will be your rivals
Replying Jesus to affirm
You not deceived be relieved
Name Mine come many I confirm
Claiming to be the Messiah many deceived
War reports of wars heard
Alarmed be not end you won’t see
Happen they must to frantically herd
Kingdom against kingdom nations against nations agree
Jesus described earthquakes and famines
Place to place worldwide believe
Beginning pains of humanity’s labor
The world must begin its end to conceive
