And looking up to heaven, he groaned, and said to him: Ephpheta, which is, Be opened.Mark 7:31-37
31 And again going out of the coasts of Tyre, he came by Sidon to the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis.
32 And they bring to him one deaf and dumb; and they besought him that he would lay his hand upon him.
33 And taking him from the multitude apart, he put his fingers into his ears, and spitting, he touched his tongue:
34 And looking up to heaven, he groaned, and said to him: Ephpheta, which is, Be opened.
35 And immediately his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spoke right.
36 And he asked them that they should tell no man. But the more he asked them, so much the more a great deal did they publish it.
37 And so much the more did they wonder, saying: He has done all things well; he has made both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.
Inspiration of the Holy Spirit - From the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Everyone marveled at my miracles when they realized the power of God manifested in such a supernatural manner. But miracles were not the reason for my coming to the world; they were just an indication to confirm the Word of God made flesh. How many went totally unaware before the heavenly portents that were taking place before them, because, as in all generations, many people preferred to live according to the laws of the flesh and despised the call of God.
My signs demonstrated clearly that I was someone special, the Messiah who was awaited for thousands of years by the Israelites for their liberation. My words were always backed by my power, since I am the Word of God, He who said “Let there be light, and the light was made.”
The divine powers continue to manifest daily, since my word sustains creation by the work of my Holy Spirit. The Divine Mercy is patient and allows human beings to experience God through the triple testimony: of the Father, through creation; of the Son through redemption and of the Holy Spirit though the continuous manifestation of God in each heart.
My Word does not go unaware by any human being, I speak constantly in each heart through my Spirit, I knock on the door inviting the soul to awake spiritually so that it will prepare through my commandments to know me, love me and serve me.
God does not need anybody, however everybody needs God. He who wishes to know me comes close to me and begins the spiritual life. He who loves me receives my love and grows spiritually in holiness. He who serves me receives a reward infinitely greater than his effort.
Nothing exists without the divine consent, and nothing occurs without the permission of the Divine Providence. The offering that I make is for the good of the soul, for the temporal human benefit and for the eternal heavenly reward. My glory is the humility and obedience of all the souls who upon hearing my Word understand the value of my call and follow me.
The miracle of the deaf mute is very significant spiritually, since the majority of human beings suffer spiritual deafness when they reject my voice and spiritual muteness when they don’t speak to me, when they don’t react before the divine greatness expressing their thanksgiving, fidelity and praise.
You, who receive these words, “If today you hear my word, harden not your heart”.
