Good Friday…He Took Away The Sins of the World…Did We Bring Them Back?

With his death, Christ took away the sins of the world…Did we bring them back?

Good Friday is a day of mourning of this supreme sacrifice given by Christ to secure humanity a passage into everlasting life….

What have we done with our salvation?

Take a look around your immediate surroundings…then take a look around the world…

There is still so much human induced pain and suffering upon immediate family…friends…co-workers…strangers…animals…the planet…for reasons that are far and away from sacrifice…compassion…and selflessness…

The origin of “compassion” comes from Latin which means “to suffer with.” A greater commitment that not only means to have sympathy but to suffer along with whoever is suffering… This is how Christ gave his life for humanity…He made the ultimate sacrifice by suffering along with humanity in taking humanity’s sins and suffering upon himself.

It appears as though the sins of the world are back…a hundredfold! This time…we are being reminded that we can choose to uphold the great sacrifice and show of compassion that was made on humanity’s behalf…to ensure the salvation that we have been given…Holy Week culminating with Good Friday…isn’t an occurrence that comes just once a year…Love…Sacrifice…Compassion…are always with us to exercise every second of everyday.

There are those who believe that sins will never be accounted for, and therefore, they make it their mission in life to violate every universal law which extends into laws of humanity, without believing their actions consequential…Every human breath and action is held accountable…and will be satisfied…There is nothing random in the universe…From black holes to meteors crashing to Earth…Everything holds meaning and accountability….

Use this day of Good Friday to understand its significance…and yours.

The gift of salvation was made with compassion…sacrifice…love…and the knowing and belief…that humanity was worth it…

He took away the sins of the world…Have we brought them back?

Search your hearts…

It is there…you will find the answer…

And…Salvation….

Christmas Eve 2021…

On the Eve of Christmas 2020, we looked forward to Christmas Eve 2021…Here we are…still following us is the ever mutating coronavirus…repeating its presence with isolation…climbing infection counts…travel cancellations…and disappointment…causing defiance of protocols and small gatherings…

To beat this virus we must appeal to our humility…and think of the bigger picture…next Christmas Eve…2022.

If we would just think of what we could have…instead of what we don’t have…we can beat this virus and be together again…and have the freedom without the consequence of infection…and possibly death, by following protocols and protecting our families, friends and neighbors…and those we come into daily contact with, by doing what we know is necessary to bring this virus under control.

No one is giving up their rights as they believe…If we cannot control ourselves to do what is necessary to control COVID, everyone needs to start getting use to the idea that the ability to be with those we love will never come without consequences…and the lack of consideration will also touch and take the lives of those that may be…and have been condemned by those shouting the loudest about their rights being taken away while demonstrating disregard and defiance of protocols…that if practiced, would save thousands and thousands of lives.

I remember when vaccination verification such as smallpox, had to be shown before children could start school…I don’t remember many people objecting then…It assured the safety of children everywhere, attending public and private schools….

Ironically, although smallpox was eliminated in North America in 1952, and Europe in 1953, the World Health Organization began a plan in 1959 to eradicate smallpox from the world, and met with the same challenges then with lack of funds, personnel and commitment from countries, and shortages of vaccine donations… This is not the type of consistency which should be practiced in humankind moving forward…

We must step out of the confines of the Past…and move with expediency into the progress of Today…

If Christ chose to be defiant…shout about his rights or practiced being self-absorbed and thinking only of himself…would we be observing Christmas? Or any other holidays associated with the life and death of Christ? He sacrificed his life for humankind….Humans can’t even sacrifice wearing a mask…to save the life of another…let alone, themselves….

How important is life really…to humankind??? If we were to measure that question by behavior and what we have witnessed, and continue to witness surrounding COVID and protocols…our answer is already reflected in the number of lives lost to this continuing pandemic. Whose rights have really been taken away and lost?

What is being lost now is time…time which cannot be replaced…Time which will never come again. Time which could and would have been used with family and friends…if protocols were practiced by everyone…it could have been here and now…in 2021.

It is we…right here…right now…who hold lives in the palm of our hands…it is our choices which define us and define the fate of those we love and those we have yet to know…We can be foolish with our fates…and if we don’t care about our fates…

We commit even higher travesties and sinfulness by blatantly condemning others to our foolishness…and their rights to life.

The difference is ours to make…

Will Christmas Eve 2021 give rise to Christmas Eve 2022…which began with Christmas Eve 2020?

As we have witnessed…free-will is a double-edged sword…Selfless…or Selfish….

Christmas Eve…2021…

Remember it…if you are satisfied…keep it going…if freedom is what you seek for Christmas Eve 2022…make it happen now…know what must be done…and do it with heart and soul.

We make the choices…and our choices define us and the moment.

May your hearts be light…

With the coronavirus soon…to be out of sight.

Christmas Eve Blessings to all….

HE IS RISEN…It’s a Brand New Day…For Humanity…

Easter Sunday is a testament to humanity…A reminder that your ticket to Heaven has been bought and paid for…through the Blood of Jesus…

Easter Sunday is the greatest testament to Love that will ever come to be…

We just need to go within…to recognize the sacrifice given…for the Love of Humanity.

Yesterday morning…I awoke to words in my heart…in gracious thanks and testament to my spiritual understanding of this great and powerful love that was given for us…and to us…Yet, we exercise such limited understanding of its meaning…and power.

There is a tremendous healing and restorative power in love…like a mustard seed…just a little love goes a long way.

Easter isn’t about dyeing eggs…luscious baskets filled with candy and little trinkets…parading around in “Easter best” or bonnets…

The meaning of Easter is the miracle of Love and the Resurrection of throwing off the flesh (the material)…and recognizing the power of the Spirit (Love) and what can be accomplished in selfless and unconditional giving of this essence and most powerful… living energy.

Christ was consistent and unwavering in His acts of Love…even with those who were perceived as His enemies…

“Forgiveness” is a most significant key in understanding the power and magic of Love…

Christ came to teach us…to show us by example…the incredible and unbelievable power…of Love.

He believed that once we understood Love…we would do greater works than He…

He Is Risen….

Can we rise?

A soul must be willing to rise…

He can and did…lead us there…Can we rise?

Let your heart guide you…

Here are the words that came to me, yesterday-morn…

IN THE NAME OF JESUS

He Said…

Come sit upon my tomb

Open up your heart…make room…

This sacrifice I make

Is your choice for commitment to take…

A vow of Love…Love…Love…

Handed down from above…(a)bove…(a)bove…

So that you can be Free…Free…Free…

Throughout E-ter-ni-ty!

He laid down His life, you see…

Given up for you and me

Stand up and praise His Name…

Your life won’t be the same…

Shout it out with joy…Exclaim

Go ahead…just say His Name…

Jesus…Jesus…JESUS!

He rescued me!

He saved my soul…blessed are we!

Hallelujah, Hallelujah!

Let the truth be told…
He rescued me!!!

He took me from the dark into the Light

He showed me how to win the fight…

He set me Free…Free…Free!

Throughout E-ter-ni-ty!

Gave it up for you and me…

Stand up and praise His Name…

Never ever gonna be the same…Same…SAME!

In the Name of Jesus…

In the Name of Jesus…

In the Name of Jesus…

A-men….

We can rise…if we believe…

It isn’t about following a religion…

It’s about Believing…

The “Knowing” that lives in our hearts…tells us this is truth…even if we refuse to believe.

We are here…In The Name of Love…

Christ gave up His life…In The Name of Love…

Christ is Risen…

Resurrected…In The Name of Love…

BELIEVE…

Easter Sunday is the culmination of events…resulting in the Greatest Love of All…

Yes…HE HAS RISEN…

And paved a Way…for us to follow.

Happy Easter…Happy Resurrection Day…

You are most Loved…..

Good Friday…

Today is the day observed as the day of the Crucifixion…Good Friday.

The day was reflective of the occasion….It was cold…overcast…winds whipping around corners…a snowflake or two…

One could almost say the weather was an indication of the somber event which took place a few millennium ago.

While marking the end of Lent for Christians and the 40-day fast…Christ was arrested and executed…giving his life out of love for humanity…remembered as Holy Friday…or God’s Friday….giving way to “Good Friday.”

Love…All in the name of Love…

This sacrifice for the sake of the sins of humanity…as well as His love for human kind…should give us all the more reason to love one another…

If Christ suffered and died for the sins of the world…can’t we embrace and practice the simplicity of Love?

The signs are everywhere…beginning with Good Friday….

To everything…there is a time and a season….

This is the time and season to reacquaint yourself with Love…..

All of Heaven is watching…

Let not this great sacrifice go unnoticed…

Reaffirm with God’s Friday…

Remember…and Be Blessed!

Easter…He Is Risen…Have You?

 untitled (2)

Easter Sunday has finally arrived…He is Risen! Jesus has fulfilled his destiny.  The Father and Son have made good on their words and promise of everlasting life! The question now is, have you risen?

Have you risen above and beyond the temptations that day in and day out, take away from the path of higher consciousness and enlightenment? How many times will you say, “Next time…next year…I have time.” Next time and next year, come and go in the blink of an eye!

Another Easter Sunday dawns and passes…again and again, until there will be no more time to rise to the occasion of everlasting life!

Take a moment now to just reflect and ponder your life…Do you like what you see…do you like what you have become?imagesDF7NVOMC

Everyday is a new day…and every new day gives one the chance to be closer to becoming enlightened and renewed in spirit in order to attain everlasting life…The Risen Christ has given you a guarantee….It is only an assurance if you accept the journey.  God will not be mocked.  Make no assumptions about your passage…It is an act of love and a passage of faith…Be in this world…not of it.

Have you risen? You may believe you have…only God…and time, will tell….

May the peace and wisdom of God’s Grace be yours today…and everyday.

PRAISE YE THE LORD!!!

He Is Risen….

Good Friday…What’s Good About It?

imagesVGXYFYGR

When you reflect upon Good Friday…What’s really good about it? It was perhaps the worst day in the history of mankind in revealing his true nature…it ran the gambit from betrayal…denial of knowing…selling for 100 pieces of silver…doubting miracles…jealousy…envy…discrediting…maligning…lying…defiling of Temples…to the eventual taking of the Messiah’s life.

What does God see in us that we cannot see in ourselves? All of man’s corruptions then, are still going on now…magnified in their horrific intensity and visited upon the innocent and just without conscious or remorse…day in and day out…just as it was visited upon the Christ nearly 2000 years ago.

What was good about that Friday so long ago, is that Jesus did not walk away from the promise of His being…dying for the sins of the world gave man everlasting life…

Can man be saved? Is Mankind worth such a selfless sacrifice? Has much changed with the passage of time since the inception of Good Friday?

Be still…hold silent…quiet your chaos and hear the voice of God…

Good Friday…what’s so good about it? You’re still here! Imagine…where you would be…if God gave up on you….

Amen.
