Fourth Sunday Ordinary Time
January 31, 2021 •
A prophet, according to the Scriptures, is simply someone who speaks truth. ... God's Truth. The reason we assume something is prophetic, meaning referring to the future, is because truth is truth all the time. Now and in the future.
Most of us, when we hear the Truth for the first time, it doesn't make sense or we don't accept it. Later on, when we finally learn that it was true, we're like, "Oh! It was prophetic!" No, no. It was just true.
It's like, as parents, when you try to teach children and they don't listen to you. Then they come back 10 years laters and say, "Mom, Dad, you were right all along." Well, Mom and Dad aren't prophetic. They just have more experience than you.
Anyone who has experience in life has knowledge, has a certain understanding of things in truth that they can share with others who are less experienced. Well, God is eternal, right? He doesn't need experience. He knows everything.
He is Truth.
He communicates that Truth to us through His prophets. And that Truth is True now, and in the future. It's always true.
Jesus, Who speaks the Word of Truth, is actually the Word of Truth incarnate.
"In the beginning was the Logos..."
Behind all reason, behind all Truth, is Jesus Christ.
