In this podcast episode I explain how we can be sure that God the Father never gives up trying to turn unbelievers to Jesus their Savior. He never abandons anyone until the point of death when they make their final choice. We can see this in Hebrews 4:12-16 (which tells us about the sword of the Spirit), in Job 36:5,8-12 (which reassures us, “He makes them listen to correction and commands them to repent of their evil,” and from Saint Alphonsus de Liguori (who tells us about the “veil” of deception getting lifted).
Doesn’t it seem like there’s an awful lot of people in our world today who have no faith, no interest in religion, no interest in Catholicism, no interest in Jesus Christ — regardless of how they were raised? Many were raised without faith; they came from families who did not go to church. But many went to church as children and had good faith lives, and now they don’t. Our world has snagged them. And we’re worried about them, right?
Can you imagine how God the Father feels about them?
Who are you praying for because you’re worried about their salvation? Imagine that person with nothing on their mind, nothing in their vision, nothing in their field of vision but the Holy Spirit and the truth and Jesus Christ presenting it to them, wielding the Spirit as a sword (a two-edged sword); would that person want to spend eternity with Jesus?
That’s what the Holy Spirit does. That’s what the sword of the Spirit does….
Saint Michael is wielding the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth. It is the truth that, as Hebrews 4:12-16 says, it is the bare truth, the unchangeable truth.
