The True Disciple.  “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven.  Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name? Did we not drive out demons in your name? Did we not do mighty deeds in your name?’   Then I will declare to them solemnly, ‘I never knew you. Depart from me, you evildoers.’”

The Two Foundations. “Everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock.  The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and buffeted the house. But it did not collapse; it had been set solidly on rock.   And everyone who listens to these words of mine but does not act on them will be like a fool who built his house on sand.   The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and buffeted the house. And it collapsed and was completely ruined.” When Jesus finished these words, the crowds were astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as one having authority, and not as their scribes. (Mt 7:21-29)

The Holy Spirit inspired me to present you the parable of The Two Builders or The Two Foundations, which was often read on Wedding Masses in Portugal during my formative years.  The couple promised joint fidelity, the Roman Catholic Baptism of their  children and their education on the Faith, and to uphold commands and values of the Church.

Consider the parable of The Two Builders in thecontext of our generation of Christ Second Coming.  Are we building for Heaven or for Hell?  Purgatory will cease at Christ’s return.  Build on Christ, the rock of salvation, seeking continuous Spiritual Growth.

Everybody likes to join heroes and avoid losers.  Satan is the biggest loser known to Humanity as he didn’t truly understand his role in the Kingdom of God and once expelled from Heaven, because of his PRIDE, he lied and deceived Humanity subjecting all humans throughout the Ages to sin, suffering and death.  Satan’s trademark is lie and deceit whereas God’s trademark is love.

Christ incarnated and underwent a barbaric Passion and Death on a Cross to reconcile Humanity with the Almighty Father and reopen the gates of Heaven.  If you are not walking with Christ, seek Him immediately.  The triumphant, glorious Christ will soon meet His elected in the clouds to lead them to Heaven.  Beware if  Satan is your hero because the Archangel Michael will come at Christ’s Second Coming to throw you into Hell,

God is the Creator and controller of the universe.  He is omnipresent, omniscient, omnibenevolent, omnipotent, the sublime source of ethics, and the giver of Grace, including the Faith to believe in His existence.  Satan is the main angel rebelling against God and  originating all evil in the world.  God created man and gave him freedom to choose between His Creator and Satan.
