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….

Holy Week…A Time To Remember…

Today marks the beginning of Holy Week for many who still understand the importance of their spirituality…

This week is filled with trials…tribulations…sacrifice…regeneration…salvation…eternal life…

During this most holy of weeks in humanity’s existence…take the time to remember…reflect…and grasp the true meaning of what it really means to sacrifice life for salvation and continuance…

So much has been forgotten by humankind…

What the gift of life really is all about…

What it means to forgive…

What salvation of the soul represents…

Remember…

Remember…

Reflect…

Give thanks…

Welcome humility…

Welcome the grace to begin again…

Reach out to be reached…

Reach out to be that anchor…

Call upon your power of Love…

Through God…and His Messengers…

However you see Him/Her…

Many roads lead to the same destination…

A Savior showed the way…

Remember that Light…bring it to the surface…

The world so needs it now…

Holy Week is here…

Don’t let it pass you by….

Remember….

Light Of My Salvation…

Today is April 1st…April Fools…and Maundy Thursday…

Holy Thursday, or Maundy Thursday is the Thursday before Easter…It is the day that commemorates the Washing of the Feet and The Last Supper of Jesus Christ with His Disciples…

For me…it is a day to always remember the Light of My Salvation…

It is especially important to remember and to be thankful…because Holy Week, culminating with Easter Sunday is when humankind came into their everlasting Salvation…and to also remember that everyday of your life…is indeed a gift of Salvation…

Light of My Salvation

In my darkest hour

I always turn to You

because You’re always there

to see me through…

Not that I don’t have You in my thoughts

and deeds every single day…

You are truly my salvation

when sorrow comes my way…

You are my strength,

My Savior,

the essence of my being…

When I talk to You

it stops my heart from fleeing…

Thank you for opening up

Your arms to me…

Allowing me my tears…

Allowing me to be…

Opening my heart… To see…

There is no love greater…

No love sweeter…

No love more compassionate…

No love more freely given…

A love that is always there…

To fill my cup…

Light of the world…

Light of my existence…

Light of My Salvation…

Dearest God,

Thank you…

For always being here… Within me…

Without You, I know…

I would be forever lost…

In darkness…..

This April 1st…remember that there are moments filled with playing the Fool…

Let this Holy Thursday reflection…begin the road to your continued salvation….

Day In and Day Out… Holy Week Is Here.

Day in and day out

Year after year…

I ask myself why…

Why am I here?

This planet called Earth

Is a beautiful place…

But somehow its people

Have fallen from Grace…

They’ve totally distorted

A precious gift

Sent out from above…

The Wisdom of the Heavens

The gift of Love…

Day in and day out

Year after year…

Angels weep

To save the souls here…

Somehow it’s been forgotten

Through the passage of time…

Not to love one another

Is surely a crime…

It’s easier to be cruel…

To hate…you see…

Than to look for the love…

In you and me…

Day in and day out

Year after year…

I ask my God why…

Why am I here?

The answer comes softly…

Most certain and clear:

To restore the Love

So blocked out…by fear…

To give your heart

With compassion and cheer…

Truly learn…to turn

The other cheek…

Bring Light to the lost…

Comfort the weak…

As all life is mine…

It is also yours…

To strengthen

To nurture

To open closed doors…

If all this is done

Without thought to the deed…

You will have fulfilled

A very crucial need…

Day in and day out

Year after year…

Shine like a beacon

Let them know

I Am here…

Why…you ask…

Why are you here?

To show My Children…

I still hold them dear….

In this Holy Week…where all come together to pay reverence in their way to the meaning of Easter… Remember what it means to lay down your life…so that others may have life eternal…

Give reverence to those plagued and hounded by Racism…Prejudice…Discrimination…Hatred…

Imagine…what it would be like to be singled out because of the color of your skin…

Or have hatred visited upon you…because you are Asian…and treated with contempt…because of social ignorance and fear…

Or plagued by religious persecutions which go on all over the world in the waging of wars…and genocide…

To understand this week of Crucifixion…Sacrifice…Death…Resurrection and Life…Walk the path as each day passes…and understand what a Love as great as this really means for each and every one of us… Even if you don’t believe…look in your heart for the meaning of Love…and understand…that there is no love greater than to lay down your life for another…

Symbolically, stand up…speak out…come to the aid of…

Day in and day out…year after year…the trials and tribulations of Holy Week, are always being visited upon one individual or group of the human family…

One… who over 2000 years ago…did not think twice to stand up…speak out…and come to the aid of…ultimately giving the sacrifice of His life…for humanity’s gain.

He looked upon people as doing greater works than He…

We have only to witness those who have stepped out on faith and changed the course of human life in their selfless contributions to the betterment of humankind…

Step out of the shadow of fear…into the Light…

Day in and day out…year after year…

You may be the reason…

God holds His Children… dear….

Holy Week…A Time For Reflection…Then Resurrection…

I always find the week leading up to Easter Sunday, Holy Week,  is a week of reflection and resurrection of your spirit…A week of contemplation and giving of yourself…as Jesus gave of Himself…and ultimately, Himself… for Humanity’s Salvation…Yet in this week of reflection, we examine ourselves to find if we have been true to our inner spirits of God’s faith in us as being worthy of salvation…by giving service to others, unconditionally,  while manifesting miracles through the power of love…

Our trial as true beacons of light and love, was ushered in by a pandemic…this pandemic is going to be one of the ultimate tests of humankind’s service to one another and a testament to the power and miracle manifestations of Love…

Maundy Thursday and Good Friday are always reflections of the finality and suffering of Jesus’s last acts in human form, by the reaction of the weather during those days…Thursday, it rained all day…Friday began cloudy…the sun broke through momentarily…and then there was rain…and darkness.  The heavens remember  the past…representing these days, every year that I can remember, with darkness and rain…Sorrow and tears from above…to cleanse and open our hearts to the real reason of our existence…Love….

Tomorrow will be the day of the Great Resurrection…He rose again to save our souls…so we could save others…Practice Connectivity…Teach Brotherhood…Give Peace….Manifest Miracles Through Love…Become the Power…Become Love…We are and always will be Love…Tapped or untapped…it is who we are…and we will be tested…time and time again…until we face that realization…

No matter how many eons pass…or how many resurrections we find before us…We will always be given a reminder…This pandemic will pass…but not our capacity to Love…it must stay with us and we must cultivate it daily…hourly…moment by moment…without giving thought to the deeds or the giving…lest we do…we will be given a test even greater…to which there may be no return to give thanks…

There are only hours left to reflect before we resurrect…become one with He who gave His life…so we could live…

I will leave you with that reflection…..

 

a day
