"That is why, as the Holy Spirit says, If only you would listen to him today! Do not harden your hearts, as at the day of rebellion, as at the time of testing in the desert, when your ancestors challenged me, and put me to the test, and saw what I could do for forty years. That was why that generation sickened me and I said, 'Always fickle hearts, that cannot grasp my ways! And then in my anger I swore that they would never enter my place of rest." (Heb 3:7-11).
Yes, during that time, many miracles were done but it was ignored by the Israelites. They lacked faith in God and it could be sometimes surprising!
But history repeats itself. There are many faithful in this generation just like the patriarchs Moses, ABRAHAM, Noah, Lot, Joshua and many more. At the same time, there are also some who doubt the existence of God. It was very clear that in this Year of Mercy, God is always inviting man to repent and go back to Him.
But the reality also persists, those who refuse the everlasting mercy of God will never enter His land of rest.
Let us pray today that God will give us the grace to ask forgiveness for all of the sins that have offended Him. May God shower us His mercy day by day! So when the time comes when He calls us at a time we do not know, we are ready to enter His Heavenly place and be with Him forever... In Jesus Most Holy Name. Amen.
