Can Christ Deceive Us? ….Can God?


Can Jesus Christ  [actually] Deceive us?  … Can God?

I’m Catholic By Pat Miron

A Discussion Of John’s gospel = “the Good News of Jesus Christ!

John 6:47 (protestant bible: KJV) — “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He thatbelievethon me hath everlasting life“. …. {D.R. catholic Bible} “Amen, amen I say unto you:He that believeth in me, hath everlasting life. … I am” the bread of life.” 

Deut.11: 16 “Take heed lest your heart be deceived, and you turn aside and serve other gods and worship them,” … Rom.3: 13 “Their throat is an open grave, they use their tongues to deceive.” “The venom of asps is under their lips.” [PERHAPS UNKNOWINGLY which may effect “the cause“ but does NOT lessen the “effects.”] … 1John.5: 10 “He who believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself. He who does not believe God has made him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has borne to his Son.”

Everyone may, should and ought to accept the fact that it is a Moral Impossibility for God to lie or deceive.

John.14: 6 “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me.” [MEANING doing it “My Way.”] 

John.17:17 Jesus prayer for the Apostles: “Sanctify them in the truth; thy word is truth“.

King James Bible

John 6: 54 “Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. 

 John 6: 28-29  “They [then ASKED GOD] and said therefore unto him: What shall we do, that we may [know AND DO the] works of God? Jesus answered, and said to them: This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he hath sent. John 20:29 “blessed are they that have not seen, and have believed”

KJV John 6: 33-36 “For the bread of God is hewhich cometh downfromheaven,andgivethlife unto the world.Then said theyuntohim,Lord,evermoregiveusthisbread.AndJesussaid unto them,Iam the bread of life: he that comethtome shall neverhunger ; and he that believethonmeshallnever  thirst. ……But I [JESUS in accusation] say unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not.”  … Douay Rheims Catholic Bible  John 6:33-36 For the bread of God is that which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life to the world. They said therefore unto him: Lord, give us always this bread.  And Jesus said to them: I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall not hunger: and he that believeth in me shall never thirstBut I said unto you, [JESUS in accusation] that you also have seen [heard] me, and you believe not.”

John 6: 54Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.55For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.

One might ask: “How can these WORDS Spoken By Jesus; God- Himself, be “Fighting WORDS?”  And yet; next to Matthew’s Gospel passage about “Peter; the ROCK and THEE keys,“ fewer bible passages bring to the fore the heat of passionate debate as does John Chapter six. So let’s look at what the Bible itself say’s; understanding that these are the very WORDS of our God. Let us see if there is room for right understanding using only pure human logic in understanding and accepting this critical Teaching, so very important to everyone’s possible salvation, simply because of the clarity of God’s own SPOKEN WORDS.

The essential  premise is of course that God can neither lie or deceive us

That God’s choice of WORDS is always perfect; the best and most suitable words possible to express with clarity, what He God wishes us to know and accept. The question then is, this sufficient? The first reading of all bible passages ought always to assume [unless otherwise specifically indicated] that the speaker is being literal.

The Gospel According to Saint John FROM the Douay Rheims Catholic Bible

Chapter 6 begins with:Christ feeding five thousand men with five loaves. He then walks upon the Stormy-sea and introduces the Miracle of all Miracles in discourses of the bread of life.

Verse:[5] “When Jesus therefore had lifted up his eyes, and seen that a very great multitude cometh to him, he said to Philip: Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat? [6] And this he said to try him; for he himself knew what he would do. [7] Philip answered him: Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one may take a little. [8] One of his disciples, Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, saith to him: [9] There is a boy here that hath five barley loaves, and two fishes; but what are these among so many? [10] Then Jesus said: Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. The men therefore sat down, in number about five thousand. [11] And Jesus took the loaves: and when he had given thanks, he distributed to them that were set down. In like manner also of the fishes, as much as they would. [12] And when they were filled, he said to his disciples: Gather up the fragments that remain, lest they be lost. [13] They gathered up therefore, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above to them that had eaten. [14] Now those men, when they had seen what a miracle Jesus had done, said: This is of a truth the prophet, that is to come into the world.”

John; who is often referred to as the “Sacramental Bible Author” is a first hand witness to each of these shared events.

John.14: 26 “But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you. AND John.20: 22 “And when he [Jesus] had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.” … As these WORDS are written AFTER the Infusion of Knowledge granted by God; there is no room to discuss the accuracy of the TEACHINGS if you choose to call yourself a “Christian?”

John sets up the Miracle of Miracles account by pointing out the desire of God to make clear and evident; His obvious concerns for His Created humanity; His extraordinary love for us; and God’s evident control over both all “Natural” and “Supernatural” things.

Nothing; absolutely nothing God does, or God proclaims is without PERFECT forethought and having a precise desired response. Everything is for OUR benefit. Everything! Not unlike a puzzle has to be “assembled” to fully appreciate its intricate components. And like a puzzle, every piece  [every expression and WORD] has a critical role to fulfill; and to complete the desired effect.  This was a GREAT part of the reason for God to choose to belittle Himself and become a “mortal man.” THAT WE MAY KNOW GOD Personally in new unheard of and previously un-contemplated ways.

So in this recounting of the multiplication of the loafs are many highly significant Key’s to correct understanding what will soon be exposed as leading up to the “Miracle of all Miracles” Bread no longer “bread” but transformed into the very Real and Glorified; Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of our God; Jesus Christ.

Notice is to be taken of EACH of these points:

1.. The miraculous action of the multiplication of the loafs is taken upon Christ  own-initiative; God’s awareness of human needs and God’s desire to OFFER to do something about those needs is clearly evident made manifest. IF God who is both our Redeemer and the single source of all salvation is this concerned about our physical needs; HOW MUCH MORE SO MUST HE BE about humanities Spiritual needs; Our Souls, which is the manner we emulate God in Genesis 1:26-27 especially all those needs having a direct bearing on the possibility of Ones eternal Salvation?

2. It is no coincidence that Christ choose to multiply BREAD rather than steaks for example; which He could just as easily have done. NOR is it  coincidence that John places this account [also found in the other Gospels but not so directly associated to this pending event] in the body of TEXT proclaiming “the REAL PRESENCE”. God choose bread because it is the world-wide recognized staple for life. And that is the same reason; the same Devine Logic that God used in providing the manna.

3. Notice the oft glossed over number of baskets of “fragments gathered.”…  TWELVE, which represents the Twelve Tribes of Israel; which to the Jews He was speaking to would have accepted as their “ENTIRE Known WORLD” [ they did not accept that which was not associated with them as they KNEW, and coveted the fact they were the “chosen people.” So the MESSAGE here is that God’s Love and GOAL was sufficient to supply the needs; “to feed” the entire world. [BOTH physically and Spiritually.] FYI: The manna too had as a primary GOAL, leading His chosen-people to God, and to the possibility of salvation. … How? By allowing them to better “know God” and to learn to TRUST implicitly what He tells them.

4 . Is the recognition of the assembled that this  act was at the very least: “The work of or through God.”

[16] “And when evening was come, his disciples went down to the sea. [17] And when they had gone up into a ship, they went over the sea to Capharnaum; and it was now dark, and Jesus was not come unto them. [18] And the sea arose, by reason of a great wind that blew. [19] When they had rowed therefore about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking upon the sea, and drawing nigh to the ship, and they were afraid. [20] But he saith to them: It is I; be not afraid.

1. Jesus left them physically satisfied. But yet longing more “more.”

2. Jesus by intent did not accompany them  by boat so He could later attempt and offer to satisfy a spiritual need they may not have even been aware of? An evident LACK OF FAITH!

3. First Jesus walks on water displaying total control of “all natural Things.” Then Jesus clams there fears. Once again showing concern for their wellbeing. The fact “that it is now dark” is to indicate puzzlement; maybe even unbelief , certainly a lack of full comprehension; each being an element of and a insufficient of True Faith.

[24] “When therefore the multitude saw that Jesus was not there, nor his disciples, they took shipping, and came to Capharnaum, seeking for Jesus. [25] And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said to him: Rabbi, when camest thou hither?” [How did you get here?]

[26] Jesus answered them, and said: Amen, amen I say to you, you seek me, not because you have seen miracles, but because you did eat of the loaves, and were filled. [27] Labor not for the meat which perisheth, but for that which endureth unto life everlasting, which the Son of man will give you. For him hath God, the Father, sealed. [28] They said therefore unto him: What shall we do, that we may work the works of God? [29] Jesus answered, and said to them: This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he hath sent. [30] They said therefore to him: What sign therefore dost thou shew, that we may see, and may believe thee? What dost thou work?

1. It is significant that parts of the crowd now calls Jesus “Rabi” …a “Learned TEACHER“; a term of high esteem.

2. Our LORD tells them: “Labor not for MEATthat parishes but rather for food that can lead one to Eternal Life.” Jesus here is setting up the Teaching; of the inexplicable Miracle on which “TRUE Faith” =[knowing Christ as God; knowing what Christ teaches and then believing it {even if } ONLY because God Himself has said so], that it necessary for our salvation. [As our Creator, God is painfully aware of our propensity to sin.]

3. “What shall we do” Is the correct question and is asked in the frame of what MUST WE DO to attain our salvation? The ANSWER by Our God is direct; precise and essential to all generations: [Jesus REPLIED:] This is the work of God , that you believe in him whom he hath sent.” … BE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND WHOSE WORD’S; WHOSE TEACHING THIS IS. God’s very own!

Now the unbelievers; those who DO NOT call Jesus “Rabi” speak up. “What [other] sign can you give us?” How obstinate can one be? Jesus had JUST fed the 5,000 with five loafs of bread; and Jesus had just walked on water; not to mention the plenitude of previous miracles.  For some there simply does not exist sufficient evidence. God’s Knows this and we, TRUE Believers are to accept it as a reality.

[31] Our fathers did eat manna in the desert, as it is written: He gave them bread from heaven to eat. [32] Then Jesus said to them: Amen, amen I say to you; Moses gave you not bread from heaven, but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven. [33] For the bread of God is that which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life to the world. [34] They said therefore unto him: Lord, give us always this bread. [35] And Jesus said to them: I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall not hunger: and he that believeth in me shall never thirst. [36] But I said unto you, that you also have seen me, and you believe not. [37] All that the Father giveth to me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me, I will not cast out. [38] Because I came down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him that sent me. [39] Now this is the will of the Father who sent me: that of all that he hath given me, I should lose nothing; but should raise it up again in the last day. [40] And this is the will of my Father that sent me: that every one who seeth [“KNOWS”] the Son, and believeth in him, may have life everlasting, and I will raise him up in the last day.”

1. Christ does some amazing; even shocking things here in setting up the Miracle of all Miracles.

2. Jesus first references a miracle of Old; which would have been a very well known FACT to them.  Even the unbelievers accepted “manna,” the bread of physical life, in the desert for hundreds of thousands of wandering Jews for FOURTY YEARS.

3. Not clearly-evident in this passage [no doubt by specific intent; knowing that nothing; ABSOLUTELY nothing ever God can say or do will convince those who are DETERMINED to be UNCONVIENCED!], is the other FACT that ALL of them present were aware of. …. The Miracle of the manna is only PART of the extraordinary WORK God performed for there ancestors in the Wandering Desert. He also provided DAILY FLESH [Doves] for them to eat and water “from the ROCK” to Drink. Another critical FACT meant to prepare them for the Mysterious Truth soon to be exposed..

Exod.16: 3,8, 12 “and said to them, “Would that we had died by the hand of the LORD in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the fleshpots and ate bread to the full; for you have brought us out into this wilderness to kill this whole assembly with hunger.” And Moses said, “When the LORD gives you in the evening flesh to eat and in the morning bread to the full, because the LORD has heard your murmurings which you murmur against him — what are we? Your murmurings are not against us but against the LORD.” [GOD now SPEAKING]… “I have heard the murmurings of the people of Israel; say to them, `At twilight you shall eat flesh, and in the morning you shall be filled with bread; then you shall know that I am the LORD your God.‘”

4  Verse 36: “you have “seen me” and still not believed” is a direct reference to past miracles; especially those relating to their ancestors. It is also a foreshadowing of Christ saying HE KNOWS there will be unbelievers.

5. This Teaching by Christ is clearly expressed in verse 40: “And this is the will of my Father that sent me: that every one who seeth [“KNOWS”] the Son, and believeth in him, may have life everlasting, and I will raise him up in the last day.” There it is out of the Mouth of God.

Now friends rather than taking the entire Teaching of Christ REAL Presence, which Is; the Glorified, Risen Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ; and  thus “the entire Christ.”, let’s just high-light those passages that seem so extraordinary clear; precise and in a word; “perfect” to describe what is PROMISED by Christ,  just as one ought to expect from God’s Infinite Devine Wisdom, regarding the accomplished Miracle of God’s insatiable love for His Created humanities SOULS.

Matthew 7:14-27 For the gate is narrow and the way is hard, that leads to life, and those who find it are few. [NOTE the admonition by Christ that follows this shocking revelation]Beware of false prophets, [means preachers and teachers] who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorns, or figs from thistles? So, every sound tree bears good fruit, [TEACHES THE TRUTH] but the bad tree bears evil fruit. [FALSE: man-made; human devised teachings of limited understanding; based only on the “MEISM” of ones own self-logic; a “Designer Religion“]… A sound tree cannot bear evil fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will [“CAN”]  know them by their fruits. “Not every one who says to me, `Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but [ONLY] he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, `Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?‘ And then will I declare to them, `I never knew you; depart from me, you evildoers.’  [If your NOT with Me; then you ARE against Me”] “Every one then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house upon the rock; [No coincidences of terms here from our Perfect, All-Knowing God] and the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew [heresies] and beat upon that house, [MY Church] but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. Matthew 16:18-19… And every one who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house upon the sand; and the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell; and great was the fall of it.”

1.[41] The Jews therefore murmured at him, because he had said: I am the living bread which came down from heaven. [42] And they said: Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How then saith he, I came down from heaven?

These unbelievers did not see Christ as having ANY Devine connection. NOTICE the response that Christ gives: AND YET it was known in Matthew 13: 54-55, [the FIRST written Gospel that Christ was somehow connected to GOD is a special manner.] And coming into his own country, he taught them in their synagogues, so that they wondered and said: How came this man by this wisdom and miracles? Is not this the carpenter’s son? Is not his mother called Mary, and his brethren James, and Joseph, and Simon, and Jude”  ….

[43] Jesus therefore answered, and said to them: Murmur not among yourselves. [44] No man can come to me, except the Father, who hath sent me, draw him; [MEANS: granted to them the gift of necessary grace for True Faith]… and I will raise him up in the last day. [45] It is written in the prophets: And they shall all be taught of God. Every one that hath heard of the Father, and hath learned, [accepted My grace and believes] … Them AND ONLY THEM…. [may /can] cometh to me.”

2.[47] Amen, amen I say unto you: He that believeth in me, hath everlasting life.

3.  NOTICE the clarity,  the constant choice of the “perfect WORDS” to describe what God WILL DO.

[48]I am” …. [This terminology would have brought to the minds of the {soon to be} believers that very expression and definition given by YAHWEH God to Moses in reply to who GOD IS, in  Exodus 3:14-15. …. the bread of life. [49] Your fathers did eat manna in the desert, and are dead. [50] This is the bread which cometh down from heaven; that if any man eat of it, he may not die. [51] I am the [THAT] living bread which came down from heaven“.

4 .  [52] If any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever; and thebread  that I will give, is my flesh, for the life of the world”

5. [53] The Jews therefore strove [argued / debated] among themselves, saying: How can this man give us his flesh to eat? To them Christ has no part, no association with Divinity whatsoever, despite ALL that he had done miraculously in the recent past.

Friends; is this not the identical question today’s Protestants and other unbelievers in God’s Word; the very PROMISE of Christ ask?

TAKE SPECIAL CARE to notice how God Himself responds. NO apology; No excuses; No back-peddling, only the TRUTH; because dear friends that is ALL God is capable of doing! God can LOVE, and God can because He MUST, share  only THEE Truth.

[54] Then Jesus said to them: Amen, amen I say unto you: Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, you shall not have life in you. [55] He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath everlasting life: and I will raise him up in the last day.

EXPLAINATION BY Bible AUTHOR

[54]“Eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood: To receive the body and blood of Christ, is a iiving precept, insinuated in this text; which the faithful fulfill though they receive but in one kind; because in one kind they receive both body and blood, which cannot be separated from each other. Hence, life eternal is here promised to the worthy receiving, though but in one kind.”

[MY NOTE: The ‘Entire Christ” is TOTALLY complete in the Form of Consecrated Bread Alone, as well as the Consecrated Wine alone. One NEEDS to ONLY receive the Bread to receive the Entire Christ.] And Holy Communion by Bread Alone continues the International NORM for the Universal Catholic Church.]

6. [56]For my flesh is meat indeed: and my blood is drink indeed.

How dear friends can anyone with a mind, intellect and freewill NOT understand what Christ who is God is saying here? And yet one often hears as a response: “it’s not what Jesus is saying; OH NO! It’s what Jesus means by these words” … WELL guess what? God is Perfect and KNOWS exactly BOTH what He God is saying and what He God is DOING!  That is the precise point of this dialog and TEACHING.

Here logic and humility seems to have an important role to “play”. The humanity of Christ; His “human nature” [“like us in everyway but sin“] can only die ONE TIME. That is WHY this Sacramental Sacrifice is a Re-presentationof THAT One SAME Godly Sacrifice time and time again. It is nevertheless just as “real” now and at every MASS, as it was on Good Friday on Calvary. But it is NOW a “Bloodless Sacrifice” as it is Christ NOW GLORIFIED and Risen Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity that we receive and consume. Surely logic ought to get one to at least question how God can die “continuously?” And then seek an explanation? It remains the “Miracle of Miracles-the Mystery of all Mysteries [along with the Trinity of course]; and we are NOT meant to understand either; but MUST accept BOTH if we actually desire heaven! How can anyone Believe one But not BOTH?

Once again take careful note of how God replies to there astonishment  [57] He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, abideth in me, and I in him. And this is exactly; precisely what takes place in Catholic Holy Communion. God ABIDES IN US and we ABIDE IN CHRIST at the same time! That’s God’s Goal. This is the GREATEST possible source of GRACE needed for ones salvation possible from God to His Beloved humanity. That is the “sum and the SUMMIT“ of ALL CHRISTIAN belief’s. That is precisely why unbelief in the Real Presence IS; IS, unbelief in Jesus Christ! And that is turn explains precisely why ALL unbelievers of this Godly Teaching endanger there very souls! Christ offers Himself to us out of LOVE for us and a fervent desire to have as many as are willing to “Believe God BECAUSE HE IS GOD”, join Him in heaven. God can ONLY make salvation possible; he has chosen by how He Created us to leave attaining it up to us.

7.[61] Many therefore of his disciples, hearing it, said: This saying is hard, and who can hear it? [accept it]  [62] But Jesus, knowing in himself, that his disciples murmured at this, said to them: Doth this scandalize you? [63] If then you shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before? [64] It is the spirit that quickeneth: the flesh profiteth nothing. The words that I have spoken to you, are spirit and life. [65] But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning, who they were that did not believe, and who he was, that would betray him.”

Verse 63 is meant by Christ to confirm that it is NOT His physical pre-death body…. Consuming that would be barbaric and useless. Again even one of little faith and a bit of logic ought to question the meaning of these words. THEY ARE after all the WORDS of a perfect God. To brush them off as unintended is scandalous.

EXPLAINATION BY Bible AUTHOR:

[63] “If then you shall see: Christ by mentioning his ascension, by this instance of his power and divinity, would confirm the truth of what he had before asserted; and at the same time correct their gross apprehension of eating his flesh, and drinking his blood, in a vulgar and carnal manner, by letting them know he should take his whole body living with him to heaven; and consequently not suffer it to be as they supposed, divided, mangled, and consumed upon earth”

[64] The flesh profiteth nothing: “Dead flesh separated from the spirit, in the gross manner they supposed they were to eat his flesh, would profit nothing. Neither doth man’s flesh, that is to say, man’s natural and carnal apprehension, (which refuses to be subject to the spirit, and words of Christ,) profit any thing. But it would be the height of blasphemy, to say the living flesh of Christ (which we receive in the blessed sacrament, with his spirit, that is, with his soul and divinity) profiteth nothing. For if Christ’s flesh had profited us nothing, he would never have taken flesh for us, nor died in the flesh for us.”

[64] Are spirit and life: “By proposing to you a heavenly sacrament, in which you shall receive, in a wonderful manner, spirit, grace, and life, in its very fountain. “

Again I BEG you to read carefully Christ response to this lunacy of thought and unbelief….

[67] After this many of his disciples went back; and walked no more with him. [68] Then Jesus said to the twelve: Will you also go away? [69] And Simon Peter answered him: Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. [70] And we have believed and have known, that thou art the Christ, the Son of God.

And the account ends much as it begin. Surrounded by Mystery; and a divided camp ; BOTH UNKNOWING; but some choosing to believe because their God say’s it is true; and others choosing to accept only their own human logic of a Devine Mystery. It is MOST revealing that God; that Jesus Christ does not back down; rather he asks His Apostles: “Do you too wish to call Me a liar; to Deny Me; to Abandon ME? We KNOW their choice; … what is your’s? Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life!

AMEN!

REPLY to  the Title Question:The WORDS ARE EXCEEDINGLY clear; and objective human logic is capable it seems of understanding them. BUT “understanding” and accepting “as True” are not the same. Why then, must we ask does Christ have  so many unbelievers?

Might these bible verses in some manner apply?

Deut.11: 16 “Take heed lest your heart be deceived, and you turn aside and serve other gods and worship them,” … Rom.3: 13 “Their throat is an open grave, they use their tongues to deceive.” “The venom of asps is under their lips.” …Luke.9: 35 “And a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is my Son, my Chosen; listen to him!” Acts.3:22-23 “Moses said, `The Lord God will raise up for you a prophet from your brethren as he raised me up. You shall listen to him in whatever he tells you. And it shall be that every soul that does not listen to that prophet [Jesus] shall be destroyed from the people.’ “ [Condemned].

Acts.4:19 “But Peter and John answered them, ‘Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you [mortal men]  rather than to God, you must judge.‘ ”

Finally please note that there are SEVEN examples of explicit and precise language used by Jesus and herein highlighted. “Seven” has the biblical numerical significance of being “thee Perfect number.” rather fitting isn’t it?

May God guide your choice dear friends,

Love and prayers, Pat

It is FACT that the Most Holy Eucharist; Jesus Himself  in the “Sacrament of the Altar” is truly, validly and licitly available from ONLY Christ Own Catholic Churches.

The Gospel, [the “Good News AND Promises of Jesus Christ] from: Saint John 12:44-50

“44 Jesus declared publicly: Whoever believes in me believes not in me but in the one who sent me, 45 and whoever sees me, sees the one who sent me. 46 I have come into the world as [the Way, and the Truth and the] light, to prevent anyone who believes in me from staying in the dark any more. 47 If anyone hears my words and does not keep them faithfully, it is not I who shall judge such a person, since I have come not to judge the world, but to save the world: 48 anyone who rejects me and refuses my words has his judge already: the word itself that I have spoken will be his judge on the last day. 49 For I have not spoken of my own accord; but the Father who sent me commanded me what to say and what to speak, 50 and I know that his commands mean eternal life. And therefore what the Father has told me is what I speak.”

Please Lord; direct, permit, cause all who read this document to “Be still and KNOW!” Amen
