HARVEST OF JOY AND GOD’S LOVE(Heb 7:25—8:6; Douay-Rheims Bible)

“Whereby Jesus is able also to save forever them that come to God by Him; always living to make intercession for us. For it was fitting that we should have such a high priest, holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners, and made higher than the heavens; Who needeth not daily (as the other priests) to offer sacrifices first for His own sins, and then for the people's: for this He did once, in offering Himself. For the law maketh men priests, who have infirmity: but the word of the oath, which was since the law, the Son who is perfected for evermore.

Now of the things which we have spoken, this is the sum: We have such a high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of majesty in the heavens, A minister of the holies, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord hath pitched, and not man. For every high priest is appointed to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it is necessary that He also should have something to offer. If then He were on earth, He would not be a priest: seeing that there would be others to offer gifts according to the law, Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things. As it was answered to Moses, when he was to finish the tabernacle: See (saith He) that thou make all things according to the pattern which was shewn thee on the mount. But now He hath obtained a better ministry, by how much also He is a mediator of a better testament, which is established on better promises.”

‭ My dearest beloved brethren, today’s Bible reading couldn’t be any clearer than what it really said that the Lord Jesus “is able also to save forever them that come to God by Him.” Our sins create a big wall between us and God and interfere with our direct communication with God. In whatever situation we are in both spiritually and otherwise, Jesus who is God the Son is always present to save us and send our problems, needs, and prayers directly to God the Father in heaven when we approach our Lord Jesus in prayers to answer us.

I pray Lord to grant us the grace and the spirit to always receive the sacrament of reconciliation so that we will purify our hearts and soul for the Lord to hear our prayers quickly, through the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.

God doesn’t leave anyone who faithfully worships, adores, trusts, and believes in Him empty-handed. That’s why nothing will happen to you as a true child of God because our Lord Jesus stands for you and intercedes for you before God in Heaven, dear adorers of our Lord Jesus.

Today’s Bible reading tells us that Jesus lives “to make intercession for us.” The ‘us’ refers to those who worship God in truth and obey His commandments. Jesus also intercedes for everyone because He doesn’t want any soul to be lost. There’s nothing God will not do for us unless God knows already that what we are requesting will not do us any good and is not good for our souls. But before our Lord Jesus intercedes for us, He already knows that it’s for our good because Jesus will never be for things that will damage our souls. God the Father is one and the same person as God the Son and therefore will at an instant do for us whatever Jesus wants for us. God cannot say NO to Himself. If God the Father says no to God the Son, it is like saying no to Himself since both of them are ONE.

I pray Lord to grant us the Grace of living lives of purity, humility, and chastity so that we will be very closely attached to God to have our prayers answered today and every day of our lives, through the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth I pray. Amen.

Be courageous and fearless in the Lord; for God is with you. You’re blessed; remain blessed!!!
