What did The First Pope do after healing the “man born crippled”? He shared Prophecies!

Prophecies!  Prophecies!  Prophecies!  Catholics follow The First Catholic Pope's example:  We love to connect Prophecies to He Who Fulfilled them!

Question 1:  “What did The First Pope tell people after healing the man who was ‘born crippled’?”

Answer:  “He let us see the hidden meaning of Acts 3:11-26.  Every person (except Mary!) is ‘born crippled’ by Original Sin.   Jesus gives the only ‘cure’‘As the crippled man who had been cured clung to Peter and John, all the people hurried in amazement toward them in  ‘Solomon’s Portico.’  When Peter saw this, he addressed the people, ‘You children of Israel, why are you amazed at this, and why do you look so intently at us as if we had made him walk by our own power or piety?’


Question 2:  “How did The First Pope answer his question?”

Answer:  “He explained that what they had done to Jesus was a Fulfillment of Prophecies!  ‘The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified His servant Jesus whom you handed over and denied before Pontius Pilate when he had decided to release Him.’  Then, Peter told them what a big mistake they had made!  ‘You denied the Holy and Righteous One and asked that a murderer be released to you.  The author of life you put to death, but God raised Him from the dead; of this we are witnesses.’


Question 3:  “What did The First Pope of Christ’s ‘One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church’ do after that?”

Answer;  “Peter told them to look at the man ‘born crippled’ as living proof of The Healing Power of Jesus:  ‘And by faith in Jesus’s Name, this man, whom you see and know, The Name of Jesus has made strong, and the (Catholic!) faith that comes through His name has given him this perfect health, in the presence of all of you.’


Question 4:  “Did The First Pope blame the people for demanding that Jesus suffer death by  being ‘crucified’?”

Answer:  “No!  Peter explained how God was working through them.  ‘Now I know, brothers and sisters, that you acted out of ignorance, just as your leaders did;  but God has thus brought to fulfillment what He had announced beforehand through the mouth of all the prophets, that His Christ would suffer.’


Question 5:  “Did The First Pope tell everyone on earth how to be cured from having been born ‘crippled’?”

Answer:  “Peter told them of God’s cure for the universally ‘crippling’ disorder of Original Sin:  ‘Repent, therefore, and be converted (to Catholicism!), that your sins may be wiped away, (by Confession and Absolution from a Catholic priest, Ordained in Living Link with The First Catholic Pope and Bishops!) and that the Lord may grant you times of refreshment (obeying The Prophetic Call to Catholic Communion that Jesus repeated 14 times:  ‘If you do not eat My Body and drink My Blood you do not have life in you.’) and send you the Christ already appointed for you, Jesus, whom Heaven must receive until the times of universal restoration of which God spoke through the mouth of His holy prophets from of old.’


Question 6: “What are some of the Specific Prophecies Spoken by ‘His Holy Prophets from old’ that came true with The Life, Teachings, Death, Resurrection, and Ascension of Jesus Christ?

Answer:  “These are a few of more than 300 Prophecies that predicted Jesus and The Catholic Church He Spoke Into Being with His Church-Creating Word:  ‘And I say unto you thou art Peter and on this rock I build My Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.  I give you the keys to The Kingdom of Heaven.’:

This is one Prophesy from Hosea 6:2 ‘He will revive us after two days;  on the third day He will raise us up to live in His presence.’

We can count at least 15 Prophecies written 700 years before Jesus and His Church in six Verses from Isaiah 53:5-10!  (Prophesy #1) ‘But He was pierced for our sins, (Prophesy #2) crushed for our iniquity.  (Prophesy #3) He bore the punishment that makes us whole, (Prophesy #4) by His wounds we were healed.

(Prophesy #5) We had all gone astray like sheep, all following our own way;  (Prophesy #6) But The Lord laid upon Him the guilt of us all.

(Prophesy #7) Though harshly treated, He submitted and did not open His mouth;  (Prophesy #8) Like a lamb led to the slaughter or a sheep silent before shearers, He did not open his mouth.  (Prophesy #9) Seized and condemned, He was taken away.  Who would have thought any more of His destiny?  (Prophesy #10 For He was cut off from the land of the living, (Prophesy #11) struck for the sins of His people.
(Prophesy #12) He was given a grave among the wicked, a burial place with evildoers, (Prophesy # 13) though He had done no wrong, nor was deceit found in his mouth.   (Prophesy #14) But it was The Lord’s will to crush him with pain.  (Prophesy #15) By making his life as a reparation offering, He shall see his offspring, (billions of Catholics on earth and with Him in Heaven!) shall lengthen His days, (Prophesy #16) and The Lord’s will shall be accomplished through Him.’

Question 7:  “What is The Earliest Prophesy about Jesus?”

Answer:  “The First Prophesy about Jesus comes from The Beginning of The Book of Genesis 1:3.  That was the time-beginning moment that God Spoke an Expanding Universe Into Being that is now measured in trillions of  ‘lightyears’‘Let there be light’!

May God bless us all to get His ‘keys to The Kingdom of Heaven’!”
