The summer weather has finally hit Prince Edward Island. It was 20 degrees Celsius on Thursday and people were walking outside just with sleeveless shirts. I went fishing trout this morning with my sister and we caught five. I had a great supper this evening. We should have a beautiful sunny and warm day tomorrow.
P.S. Remember that Satan exists and watch out for him. He can come to tempt you at any time. What he wants is that you commit sin and offend God. In that case you will be on his side. Don't forget that he is your enemy and you must say “no” to him at all times. Ask Jesus every day to protect you from the evil one and that you receive the graces you need to oppose him. I love you all.
The Question about the Resurrection
22, 23 - 33
On that day Sadducees approached Jesus, saying that there is no resurrection. They put this question to him, saying, “Teacher, Moses said, 'If a man dies without children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up descendants for his brother.' Now there were seven brothers among us. The first married and died and, having no descendants, left his wife to his brother. The same happened with the second and the third, through all seven. Finally the woman died. Now at the resurrection, of the seven, whose wife will she be? For they all had been married to her.” Jesus said to them in reply, “You are misled because you do not know the scriptures or the power of God. At the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage but are like the angels in heaven. And concerning the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what was said to you by God, 'I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'? He is not the God of the dead but of the living.” When the crowds heard this, they were astonished at the teaching.
Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,
“I call you My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters to believe in the resurrection with all your hearts. I am the first one to rise from the dead and to ascend to heaven. You too will rise on the last day if you follow Me while you are still on earth.
As you just read you know that the Sadducees did not believe in the resurrection. They came to Me with a story hoping to confuse Me. This woman married seven brothers and they all died without children. So they asked Me if I could tell them whose wife she will be in heaven. Of course they were wrong as there is no marriage in heaven. All the saints are like the angels and everybody is a brother or a sister. So the Sadducees were all wrong with their ideas and they could not prove that there is no resurrection from the dead. The truth is that there is such a thing as the resurrection. It will come at the end of the world. Come and remain close to Me and you will be resurrected from the dead on that last day. I am your Savior and I want to save all of you. Come and cooperate with Me. I bless you all.”
