Jesus is the Beginning and the end of the Whole Creation
“Because knowledge of the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven
has been granted to you, but to them it has not been granted.
To anyone who has, more will be given and he will grow rich;
from anyone who has not, even what he has will be taken away.
Today’s readings give us the message of Christ Revelation to the Elect and to the whole Creation. God’s Words are spirit and life and they are live and active. Bible is not merely a literature or piece work of history or biography but a testimony of God’s Love to his People. The Love of God cannot be wrapped or written in a piece of Paper or ink but it is felt in obedience and deeds. I write every day daily prayer reflections and this revelation or insights challenge me in my day today life to witness to the message. God’s Words are the greatest treasure in this Earth. All our families, communities, charities, Church and sacraments are based on the Word of God. God revealed the mysteries of the Kingdom of God through these Words. The Salvation message of Christ are in these Words and they are active. If we visualise the Bible stories to Children and as we read the stories in the Bible and they become alive and active in our life like the movie Jumanji. This happens in my life and I am sure it happens in the life of all those who understand and meditate and apply the Gospel values in their life. Today in the Gospel Jesus talks to Worldly people in Parables and to the Humble People in real meaning and explanation. Parables are like a mirror which shows our real self but if we look in the mirror and if we do not rectify our spoiled image, by wiping out all the dirt or shabby looks, the image will remain as it is without any change. These types of People are of Stubborn hearted or stout-hearted people. These Hearts are in the spell of Worldly & Evil desires of collecting worldly things like money, wealth, positions, name and fame and want to be successful people on this Earth.
St. Paul says in the second reading, the whole World is waiting for the Salvation. The whole Creation is asking for help to the humans, the Masters of the Creation to accept the mysteries of the Kingdom of God and to save the Creation from perishing, but the Human is clinging to the Creation which itself is perishing and getting perished along. This is like Committing Suicide.
Jesus is the Word of God who was in the beginning and all things were created through him. The Universe lost the Word of God and became mere material object by Sin entering in to the Creation Thus the whole creation became cursed due to the Sin of its Master human Adam & Eve. Jesus has given us the Salvation on the cross and given us the first Fruit Holy Spirit by making us a new creation in him. The hardened hearts and Worldly minds are transformed in to Christ heart and mind and Holy Spirit has been given to us as a seal of our salvation. When we accept Jesus in our life who was Creator of the Creation, the entire Creation automatically becomes blessed due to our Mastery of human over it. This is the reason the people of God must bless the Work of our hands and bless the Whole Creation and pray to be transformed in to God’s Creation. Jesus has come in to this World and given us the Gospel the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God to accept him as the Lord and Master of our life and he is faithful to finish the salvation work which he has planned before the foundation of the World. He is inviting all of us to accept the message in our lives and live on those values and release the ancestral Curse of our forefathers on us, our daily bread and on the Whole World. Let us offer the Whole Creation as a Sacrament in thanksgiving for the glory of God and in return the good God will transform this very World in to a New Earth & Heaven. Let us Pray Come Lord Jesus Come. Maranatha…
