In every circumstance and in all things
I have learned the secret of being well fed and of going hungry,
of living in abundance and of being in need.
I can do all things in him who strengthens me.
Jesus Christ has unveiled all the confusion and anxiety of life on the Mount Calvary and opened the mysteries of the Kingdom of God and abundant life to those who seek him and want live in his Presence. When we are with Jesus we can do all things through him. When we say all things it can be any circumstance in our life , for God nothing is impossible.
Moreover the Kingdom of God can not be aligned with the Kingdom of the World , if we detest the Kingdom of the World and prioritize our values towards the Kingdom of love then we will be able enter in to his presence but we must live a life of holiness to live with him otherwise we will be thrown away from his presence at the Day of Judgement.
All the three readings of today tell us to choose the values of Christ in our daily life , how hard or easy they may look like but when we live in his values we will see the good things of Heaven where there is no Sorrow and will provide for all people a feast of rich food and choice wines,juicy, rich food and pure, choice wines.On this mountain he will destroy the veil that veils all peoples,the web that is woven over all nations;he will destroy death forever.
It does not matter whether we are hungry or over filled but what does matter is whether we are living in Christian values. If our professions, education, wealth, Farming,Business , Family ,adventures, degrees, name and fame is not routed in the Values of Christ then these Works become Worldly values and they will not help us to live life in abundance, either in this Earth or after our death.
Our calling is to live in his presence all the days of our life, this is the Purpose God created every human being but the human has forgotten the Creator and stuck to the Creation. Creation is only a supporting function and not the main function or purpose of our life. Let us live in the love of God and enjoy an abundant life.
We have to repent for not living in his presence and the sins of the Whole World. The devil creates a Veil or web between the Creator and Creation , when we live with the Creation and embrace Evil and his false promises. Jesus has destroyed this Web and unveiled the Veil which blocked the presence of God in our life forever. When we repent and climb the mountain of his presence we are safe and sound feasting with him whatever circumstances they may be, does not matter , what matters is his presence and love because he can change every sorrow in to Joy, sickness in to health, hunger in abundance, Pandemic in to Prosperity ,nothing is impossible for him.
Mother Mary rejoiced in her Magnificat and lived a life of faith ,though she had to go through many troubles and sorrows but she remained in the presence of God and did his Will and rejoiced in all circumstances .
Prayer : Lord reveal me the secret mysteries of the Kingdom of God . Amen.
