A Reflection for:
26th Sunday in Ordinary Time
September 30, 2018
But Moses answered him,
“Are you Jealous for my sake?
Would that all the people of the LORD were prophets!
Would that the LORD might bestow his spirit on them all!”
If we look at the insights of the readings in today’s readings, we see the impartial love of God to each and person of this World despite of any race, colour, nationality, education, richness, holiness, spirituality or Hierarchies. God wants to save every person of the creation from beginning of the Creation till the end of time.
From the beginning from the creation God loved the World so much and wanted to bestow his spirit upon them. God chose Israel, Prophets, Kings as instruments to his ministry. The Sacrament of baptism or priesthood or Eucharist did not originate in the New Testament but was there from the beginning of the Creation. Jesus made these sacraments more meaningful through his ministry of Salvation.
The gift of Prophesy, Visions, Intercession, tongues are the gifts of the Holy spirit and were very much existed from the beginning of Creation. We can see in the first reading when the Holy Spirit came upon the 72 elders and began Prophesying the works of God. Why did only 72 appointed elders of Israel receive the Holy spirit and not the whole of Israel? Repentance and righteousness were preached from the beginning of the Creation. We call this Gospel of truth or precepts of God or Word of God. When we accept this truth, the Gospel of truth anoints our hearts and purifies our hearts from clutches of the World, Flesh & Evil. God wants to come and dwell in every person of this World despite of our Human nature. God wants us to give his Spirit with all its richness like Gifts & fruits of the holy spirit. Any person who renounces extra possession of World, Flesh and Evil, Jesus reveals himself to him despite of his status of life. This is the moral Science theory , when the darkness disappear , the light shines instantly. This is called the transformation Experience or experiencing Jesus in a personal way or anointing of the Holy spirit. Jesus bestows his Spirit without the ritual of Baptism. This exactly what happened in Pentecost and early Churches, when Peter & Paul were sharing the Gospel of repentance , the Holy spirit came upon the Gentiles and they speaking in tongues, Prophesying and saw heavenly visions .
A person who wants to cling to the Sins of the World, Flesh, evil and refuses the truth which invites him at every moment of his life through the Civil Law, Moral Law and through the traditions will be condemned eternally from the Spirit of Truth. The light came in to the World, but the Human preferred to live in darkness. This is a self-decision to choose the Evil. The refusal of every truth will stand witness at the time of his condemnation to eternal separation from the Spirit of God.
God Weeps at this separation from human because this separation tears his sacred heart from the soul of every human being. This is a dreadful scene probably all the Saints, Mother Mary, Angels Witness this separation. Every separation of the Soul causes great pain and Sorrow to our Lord and every united Soul in to his Spirit brings great Joy in heaven and all the angels and Saints. This is the reason Mother Mary appears in different places and calls for repentance and to pray for Sinners because she cannot see her son suffer every day from the separation of the multitude of Souls.
