The Lord Is My Chef Daily Recipe for the Soul by Fr. Nicanor F. Lalog II Wednesday in the Thirty-Third Week of Ordinary Time, Year II, 16 November 2022 Revelation 4:1-11 ><))))*> + ><))))*> + ><))))*> Luke 19:11-28
Your words today, Lord Jesus Christ, are difficult to comprehend and imagine but John's descriptions of his vision of heaven make us appreciate and realize God's great love for us and his desire for us to be with him in eternity enjoying this great mystery of his divinity.
After this I had a vision of an open door to heaven, and I heard the trumpetlike voice that had spoken to me before, saying, “Come up here and I will show you what must happen afterwards.” At once I was caught up in spirit. A throne was there in heaven…Revelation 4:1-2
St. Paul had told us too "that the suffering of this present time are as nothing compared with the glory to be revealed for us" (Rom.8:18) as you have shown John in this vision; teach us to be more firm in our faith in you, fervent in our hope in you, and unceasing in our love for you through others so that when the time comes, we may also see and experience what you have shown John.
Open our eyes and our minds, especially our hearts and souls to your reality, to your presence, dear Jesus, that we believe in you and hold on your promises of returning unlike those people who refused to recognize their king and became the biggest losers of all in your parable. To lose you, O Lord Jesus, is life's most biggest lost. Amen.
