Rightly Dividing the Word of God?

Gary responds to a video where a pastor claims you must "rightly divide the Bible," based on 2 Timothy 2:15. By this he means that you must rightly divide the "people" of God into Jew and Gentile and understand New Testament passages in light of "the Church age." The Bible never speaks of a "Church age" but this does not prevent many from claiming that it must be there all the same. They claim it is inferred and is the "key" to correctly interpreting Jesus' prophetic words in the Olivet Discourse. Watch the video here.

Friday of the Thirty-Fourth Week in Ordinary Time - Relying Upon the Word of God

Catholic Daily Reflections

Play Episode Listen Later Nov 25, 2021 6:06


“Amen, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things have taken place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.” Luke 21:32–33As we approach the final days of this liturgical year, we continue to read about the end of the world. Today we read that both Heaven and earth, as they currently are, will pass away. This is worth pondering.We know that life is full of change. It has been said that the one thing that never changes is change itself. Everything else changes. But when it comes to earth, it is hard to believe that it will one day “pass away.” Some scientists believe that the earth has existed for over four and a half billion years. That's a long time! Now consider the fact that Jesus prophesied the end of this earth as we know it today. When will it happen? Only God knows.Heaven, as it exists today, is also prophesied by our Lord to pass away. Heaven, as it is right now, is a pure spiritual reality in which the only corporeal bodies present are those of Jesus and our Blessed Mother. The rest of Heaven consists of the Divine Essence, the souls of those who have been redeemed and the angels of God. But if Heaven even passes away, what awaits?First of all, the only reason that these two realities, Heaven and earth, will pass away in their current form is because, at the Final Judgment, there will be a “New Heavens and a New Earth,” as spoken of in the Book of Revelation. At that time, Heaven and earth will be united as one, and this new creation will exist for eternity.But is there anything that is currently eternal? Anything that will never experience change? We humans will be changed at the resurrection of the dead, the angels will encounter a new home, so to speak, and God will establish a new and permanent Kingship. But, according to Jesus' teaching today, the one thing that will remain are His words: “...my words will not pass away.” Again, this is worth pondering.In a world filled with change and uncertainty, we need some form of stability. And that stability is the Truth found in the Word of God. The Word of God, as revealed to us through the Scriptures, must become our rock foundation upon which our whole lives are built and exist. Pondering, praying with, meditating on, and believing the Word of God enables us to stand on firm and unchanging spiritual ground as we go through the change of this life and even the changes that will come at the end of time. Though this may seem somewhat mysterious in nature, it is a helpful truth to understand and believe. Everything will pass away except Jesus' words. Thus, the most secure thing we can do in life is to cling to His words and never let go.Reflect, today, upon the importance of truly immersing yourself in the Word of God. How much time do you spend each week reading it, praying with it and allowing it to become your daily food? The Word of God is not simply a book of teachings meant to inspire you or guide you. The Word of God is a Living Word. It is God in His unchangeable form. God, in His essence, will never change, and engaging Him through the revelation of His written Word is one essential way by which you will be able to experience true stability in life and prepare for each and every change to come until the final order of life is permanently established.My Eternal Word, You are unchanging and eternal. You are the rock foundation upon which I must always rely. As I continue to experience the many changes encountered in this life, please enter my soul through Your written Word, so that I will find the stability I need. As I stand firm in You, I look forward with joy to the New Heavens and New Earth that await. Jesus, I trust in You.Source of content: catholic-daily-reflections.comCopyright © 2021 My Catholic Life!

Scripture For Today: Matthew 24:20“Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath…”Don't Charge the Atmosphere with Unbelief pt 1Words.  Words are one of THE most important things about prayer that you can learn about. Do you remember the grade school rhyme that went, “Sticks and stones can break my bones but words will never hurt me?”  It sounded cute. But it was filled with unbelief.  Plus, if you were facing down a bully, he would usually stop using words and turn it into something that “could” hurt you! My point, and we've discussed this over and over, is WORDS MATTER.  Your words matter. More importantly, The WORD OF GOD matters the most! So, if God's Word, and Jesus IS the Word of God  made flesh, matters THE MOST… And you words matter, let's say, “second most,” Wouldn't work out THE BEST if your words matched up with God's Words in every situation? Think about this… What created EVERYTHING? God's Words. Nothing happened until GOD SPOKE. Go to Genesis 1:1-4 and let's take a look at it… “In the beginning, GOD created the heaven and the earth…” That heaven, by the way, is NOT where God resides. It is talking about SPACE. (singular and notice the lower case “h”) Later on, it talks about the atmosphere…but I digress… “In the beginning, GOD created the heaven and the earth…” “And the earth was without form, and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep…” “And the Spirit of God MOVED upon the face of the waters…” So, picture this with me… there is NOTHING.   The earth HAD NO FORM. It was a void. Nothing.  Darkness was there.  Elsewhere, we can read that “God is light.” And darkness always refers to the devil and evil, correct? Could it be that this was Satan's dwelling after God kicked him out of Heaven?  Jesus said He “saw satan fall like lightning, from Heaven and cast down to the earth.”  Could this have been where Satan was cast into because of his transgression? It makes sense, if you think about it.  God wants to SHOW Satan how mistaken he was in thinking “nobody could love and worship God unless God “makes them do it.” Then it is not out of Love, but fear…” So, when God decides to create man and show Satan that a free will being will choose God over all else, God decides to do it right where Satan can see it.  Amen! I'm already out of time…so let's finish these verses and take it up there tomorrow… “In the beginning, GOD created the heaven and the earth…” “And the earth was without form, and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep…” “And the Spirit of God MOVED upon the face of the waters…” “And God SAID, “Light BE and Light WAS. And God saw the Light, and that it was GOOD.” Quick close in summary… Nothing was happening UNTIL GOD SPOKE WORDS.  That is how powerful words are. And since WE are created in His image and Jesus has given us His authority – we can use Words to create, just like He did… Ok. Let's leave it there for today… Let's Pray!

Fr. Mike elaborates on the significance of the Baptism of Jesus in the Jordan River. He points out that the location of the Jordan River is particualry noteworthy because it's the same river that Joshua crossed over to lead the Israelites into the Promised Land, signifying that Jesus will bring about a new exodus. Additionally, it's the lowest spot on the planet, symbolizing Jesus' humility. Finally, Fr. Mike emphasizes that when we are baptized, we are adopted as beloved sons and daughters of God because what belongs to Jesus by his nature is given to us by God's grace.
