Bible reading:

“17 Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already. 18 Now Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off: 19 And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother. 20 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house. 21 Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. 22 But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee. 23 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again. 24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day. 25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: 26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? 27 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world. 28 And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calleth for thee. 29 As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came unto him. 30 Now Jesus was not yet come into the town, but was in that place where Martha met him. 31 The Jews then which were with her in the house, and comforted her, when they saw Mary, that she rose up hastily and went out, followed her, saying, She goeth unto the grave to weep there. 32 Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. 33 When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled, 34 And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see. 35 Jesus wept. 36 Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him! 37 And some of them said, Could not this man, which opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died? 38 Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it. 39 Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days. 40 Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? 41 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. 42 And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me. 43 And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. 44 And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go. (John 11:17-44 KJV)

Comments then:

  1. All Saint’s Sunday
  2. arrived at 11:30, traffic issues due to the marathon;
  3. arrived [during announcement Today’s Opportunity for Service];
  4. I feel tired, as if fainting.
  5. The sermon was about the difference between the living and the dead, that Christ is life. Those who who believe in Him will even when dead.
  6. I had communion. It was a dry, white piece of white bread with a light buttery flavor. I feel that strong need to have faith in me.
  7. Maybe I just needed that piece of bread not to faint. By the way, that was grape juice [instead of wine].

Comments now:

  1. haven’t got any right now, too tired to think, bad headache.
  2. gotta love a red-letter Bible .

    Me encanto que haya comulgado, por favor hágalo todos los domingo, la comunión es sanadora, cada vez que comulgaba mi mama y le ponían los santos olios, mi mima se sanaba, esta ultima parte es un testimonio. Lo mismo los santos olios, antes se pensaba que eso se le ponía solo en los momento de que la gente estaba muriendo, actualmente los santos olios los pueden poner en cualquier momento. Cuando el padre o reverendo hace la bendición delas hostias, en ese momento se produce la transustanciación es decir en ese momento se convierte en el cuerpo de Cristo, por ese motivo es que la Comunión, es maravillosa, produce milagros, los niños también deberían de hacerlos,, Sobre los desmayos, por favor levántese un poquito mas temprano y vaya tomando su su desayuno, A todo el mundo le hace falta el desayuno, el desayuno es la comida mas importante, debido a que el estomago no recibido alimentos por varias horas. No se preocupe por no estar en ayunas, al momento de comulgar, actualmente ya no se necesitar estar en ayunas y haber comulgado, lo único que si debemos es de sentirnos que estamos haciendo el bien, que somos honestos, que cumplimos como buenos padres de familia, como buenos trabajadores.

    Eso es suficiente.
