Be you a Christian, Jewish, atheist or otherwise, you are not a goat. It is rather unlikely that you might one day change into a goat. Or a sheep, for that matter. No, you are a human being—a “son of man” in Christ’s day—and valuable to God. That’s what St. Matthew believed, the Jewish author of The Parable of the Sheep and the Goats. So let the fire and brimstone image go because your Father loves you. Those plagued by self inflicted goat trauma can breathe easier with a few short words from the shepherd to his flock:
—except God alone.

Yeshua says: “I-Am the Light above them all, I-Am the All. All came forth from me, and all attained to me again. Cleave wood, I myself am there; lift up the stone and there you shall find me.”

I confess to stumbling a bit off the path of late. Mostly this was due to worldly concerns, which include but aren’t limited to sparring with buggy software, nonstop work day and night, and something of a financial surprise when it came time to buy a new Apple computer for my assistant, Elena. In order to remedy my issues, though my straights were not dire, I set about reclaiming my Father in heaven.
“Woman, why are you weeping?” the Risen Lord asks Mary Magdalene. I hope you enjoy this Easter video meditation on John 20:11-18!
Revelation of the Soul explores the idea of human immortality and the means to enter the kingdom of God while we are alive. Jesus Christ proclaims mankind’s “inheritance” throughout every gospel and the letters of Paul, but Christianity does not teach it. Central issues: who or what is our greatest love? What caused the first immortal humans to die? What is the path to a life without death? Submitted here in heartfelt detail, Revelation of the Soul is the Savior’s precious gift to a glorious race of immortal children who’ve forgotten how to live.
When you were born, you were already married.
This material deals with the context of marriage and divorce in both the natural and supernatural realms. Further, it suggests moral imperatives. As such, the Revelation of the Soul is directed at those seekers who wish to heal the Fall—and enter the kingdom that was prepared for you since the creation of the world.
For marriage in the world is a sacrament for those who have taken a spouse. If the marriage of impurity is hidden, how much more is the Immaculate Marriage a true sacrament! It is not carnal but rather pure, it is not lustful, but compassionate, it is not of the darkness or the night, but rather of the day and the Light.
St. Philip the Evangelist 131 | John 3:29 |
My perfect brother is totally awesome. He is Father’s firstborn son. My soul, who says she’s my sister, and my whole family is with me all of the time. I hear my big brother’s voice in lots of ways, but mostly in my right ear. Sister talks in my left ear. She’s being super quiet right now, because Brother is speaking to us.
Jesus called the children to him and said: “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”
