Yes, raise Jesus High for the world to see. When we exalt Christ and put Him high on a pedestal, all eyes would be on Him because he would be there for all to see. Some would look upon him out of curiosity, some with indifference, some may not even behold his face but there are many who would see him, would love him and many would go out to him for healing, comfort, restoration and many would be saved. We, the baptised have received a MISSION when we became the Children of God. So, my dear brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus – Lift Jesus Christ High for the world to see and more importantly let us remember that there was a time that someone in our lives did lift Jesus Christ high so that we were able to see Him so closely that He drew us unto Himself. Amen! and Amen!
Stop! If you are thinking of aborting your baby. You might have just discovered that you are pregnant and are simply mortified. You have so many wonderful plans before you and you want all those plans to materialise. You are in a dilemma and have become sort of lifeless and in shock. All sorts of negativity is going on in your mind. At this moment you are going through a HATE MODE – Hate for yourself and for the life that is in your womb. STOP!!!
There is more to life than regret and negativity. There is help for you. If nobody in your family is willing to help you or you feel that you would be in trouble if you do, then go to your Church and contact your priest or pastor or someone whom you can trust and whom you know will help you.
But DO NOT EVEN THINK OF ABORTING YOUR BABY. A WOMB IS A PLACE OF LIFE BUT WHEN YOU ABORT YOUR BABY, YOUR WOMB BECOMES A TOMB AND THAT IS WHEN ALL YOUR PROBLEMS WILL BEGIN, SUCH AS ILL HEALTH, GUILT AND OTHER PROBLEMS WILL FOLLOW.
Now, for those who have already committed abortions and are suffering from guilt, my suggestion is to again contact a priest or a pastor or someone whom you can trust and they will lead you to counselling programs. If you are a Catholic, approach the Sacrament of Reconciliation and make a good confession, receive Holy Communion. Believe me, if you do this, you will be really and truly forgiven. If and when you can join a Pro-Life Movement and help prevent young ones from committing abortions.
REMEMBER A WOMB IS A PLACE OF LIFE – WHEN ABORTION IS COMMITTED, IT BECOMES A TOMB.

Daily Readings -29 November, 2016 – Reading 1, Isaiah 11:1-10; Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 72:1, 7-8, 12-13, 17
Gospel, Luke 10:21-24
21 Just at this time, filled with joy by the Holy Spirit, he said, ‘I bless you, Father, Lord of heaven and of earth, for hiding these things from the learned and the clever and revealing them to little children. Yes, Father, for that is what it has pleased you to do. 22 Everything has been entrusted to me by my Father; and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, and who the Father is except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.’ 23 Then turning to his disciples he spoke to them by themselves, ‘Blessed are the eyes that see what you see, 24 for I tell you that many prophets and kings wanted to see what you see, and never saw it; to hear what you hear, and never heard it.’
What is God telling us in this gospel passage. He is saying that he reveals himself to us his children. When we were baptised, we became his children and that through baptism, he is revealing to us the secrets of His Kingdom. The more intimate we become with him. the more he will reveal to us. The question now is, why is he revealing himself to us. He is doing so because he wants us to love him more and more and then for us to go and share him with others. We need Jesus Christ to be saved and others also need him, to be saved. So, while we are on a journey with Christ, it is important to share him with others. He is calling us to remain like little children – He wants us to be simple, humble, kind, loving, sharing, giving. The day we become proud, we will stop hearing him speak to us because Pride is a Block. When we are like little children, we are closest to His Heart. So let us throw pride out the window and embrace Humility and become like little children.
Not very many people know how important it is to believe in God and further more how important it is to do what He wants us to do. Well, let us pray for people to be enlightened by the Holy Spirit. This is an old video of mine but the Holy Spirit is prompting me to present this video once again. All I am being is OBEDIENT.
Yes, Our strength will last. We will wait upon the Lord. Yes Our God is everlasting and Yes, He reigns FOREVER. What do we have to fear? Come Holy Spirit, gentle and kind. Come and stir within our hearts. Bring down with you, Your Peace and Your Deliverance. Make us strong Lord. Let us not grow weary. Stir in our hearts, O Holy Spirit and help us accomplish Our Heavenly Father’s Will. Many of us waiting for tomorrows to EVANGELISE because we think we need a lot of money to evangelise. Lord, all we need is YOU. We are rich in you Lord! Come Lord, Jesus Christ and make it possible.
Yes, you are an Overcomer. Y0u are not alone. Everyone has hit the ground at one time or another. Look at Christ Jesus and He will remind you that you are an Overcomer. So do not give in because YOU ARE AN OVERCOMER. WOW!!!!

DAILY READINGS OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH – 23rd November, 2016
Reading 1, Revelation 15:1-4 Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 98:1, 2-3, 7-8, 9
“Gospel, Luke 21:12-19
12 ‘But before all this happens, you will be seized and persecuted; you will be handed over to the synagogues and to imprisonment, and brought before kings and governors for the sake of my name 13 -and that will be your opportunity to bear witness. 14 Make up your minds not to prepare your defence, 15 because I myself shall give you an eloquence and a wisdom that none of your opponents will be able to resist or contradict. 16 You will be betrayed even by parents and brothers, relations and friends; and some of you will be put to death. 17 You will be hated universally on account of my name, 18 but not a hair of your head will be lost. 19 Your perseverance will win you your lives.”
Who was Jesus Christ speaking to? He was speaking to his disciples. He knew that he would be put to death and then they would attack his disciples. He is preparing them for the time when all these things will come to pass. He is assuring them that He would not desert them and that he would give them an eloquence and a wisdom that none of their opponents will be able to resist or contradict.
What I really like about this passage is that Jesus Christ will not leave us nor forsake us. He is assuring us that we will not be alone and that He would be with us to defend us and that His Spirit would be with us as we proclaim His name. He did not say that it would be easy for us to evangelise – to proclaim His name. No, but what is important is that HE WOULD BE WITH US – HELPING US TO PROCLAIM HIS NAME. That is the mission that we have received when we were BAPTISED.
For me personally, I see from this gospel, the very fact that CHRIST WILL BE WITH US as we work for Him and for His glory. He will put the words that we should speak in our mouth – He would give us an eloquence – Imagine, us speaking with an eloquence and with wisdom that none of our opponents will be able to resist or contradict. So, why, my dear brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ, should we be afraid to speak of Jesus Christ and the coming of His Kingdom here on earth.
“16 You will be betrayed even by parents and brothers, relations and friends; and some of you will be put to death. 17 You will be hated universally on account of my name, 18 but not a hair of your head will be lost. 19 Your perseverance will win you your lives.” What does these verses mean? It means that not everybody would believe that Jesus Christ is Lord, even in families and that we will be betrayed for the SAKE OF CHRIST JESUS – YES FOR HIS SAKE. But when we believe in Christ and we fully well know that He is our Saviour and that many are languishing because they do not know HIM, then it is our duty, it is our mission to EVANGELISE AND MAKE HIM KNOWN, SO THAT OTHERS MAY ALSO BE SAVED BY ACCEPTING HIM. For me to know Jesus Christ is to have that assurance that I will never be alone. That the Son of the Living God will always be with me, guiding me and protecting me and helping me along the way to do His Holy Will. There are so many people who do feel alone, abandoned and persecuted. So if these people are aware that they are not alone, that Jesus Christ is with them and that He being God will lead them and will be with them, they would begin to believe that God is a loving and caring God. Many people are suffering and they do not know the meaning of suffering but when they come to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour and begin to have an intimate relationship with Him, they will know that Christ Jesus alone is sufficient for each one of us.
He lives and reigns in our hearts. Let us speak bravely about Him and His Kingdom – Just the way His Disciples did. Let us proclaim His Kingdom here on earth. Let us pray that Christ will reign on Earth and He does in Heaven. Alleluia!
Lord Jesus Christ, anoint our lips that we may proclaim your Kingdom here on earth. Thank you Jesus Christ for assuring us that we are not alone and that YOU ARE WITH US. You also said that you need our hands, our feet, our eyes, our mouth, our whole being to PROCLAIM THAT YOU WILL BRING PEACE TO THOSE WHO ACCEPT YOU. Amen!
