JESUS OUR PASSOVER LAMB

passover

Jesus is our Passover Lamb Who Made Ultimate Sacrifice to save all mankind. Jesus took bread, thanked God, broke bread and gave it to the disciples saying, ‘This is My body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of Me.’ And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, ‘This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in My blood.’  In Luke 22:19-20. Jesus shared feast of Passover with His disciples saying, With desire I desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer for I say to you, I will not any more eat this until fulfills the kingdom of God in Luke 22:15. As the Lamb of God, Jesus fulfilled meaning of Passover giving His body to be broken and His blood to be shed in sacrifice, freeing us from sin and death. During Passover, Jesus established the Lord’s Supper, or Communion, instructing His followers to continually remember His sacrifice by sharing in the elements of bread and wine. The Passion week begun with triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem to fulfil prophecy of Zechariah 9:9 to set Christ aside as Passover Lamb of God during passover celebrations. Jesus ate the Passover with His disciples, before His passion, saying that He had eagerly desired to eat this Passover with them. And that He would not eat it again until the Kingdom of GOD comes in Luke 22:7-16. After Passover meal, sang hymn went to Mount Olives in Matthew 26:30. Hymn sung Passover Hallel Psalm 118 stone builders rejected capstone God’s Cornerstone of redemption in Matthew 21:42; 1 Peter 2:7.Jesus came to save those who reject Him as their Saviour.perfect-lamb-jesus typeThe Perfect Christ, Without spot or blemish of sin, took on the sin of all mankind to cover to Shed Blood to protect from eternal death. So this particular Friday evening is called Shabbat HaGadol the Great Sabbath. A special Haftarah portion from Malachi is read that speaks of the coming of Messiah. Jesus was crucified as “the Lamb of GOD who takes away the sin of the world”  in John 1:29. This passover ceremony was then called the Lord’s Last Supper in remembrance of His Sacrifice as the Perfect Passover Lamb. This fulfils New Covenant between GOD and all of HIS mankind in Luke22:20; 1 Corinthians 5:7; Ephesians 2:11-13. The prophecy of this sacrifice is also found in Psalm 22. The Hebrew prophet Isaiah spoke about suffering and sacrifice of the Messiah. Jesus’ Sacrifice is Ultimate Atonement for the sins of GOD’s people in Isaiah 53 revealed in Exodus 12:5, the Passover lamb is perfect male without spot or blemish. Jesus said, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”  In the same way, he took the cup of wine after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant between God and you sealed by the shedding of my blood. And so do this to remember me as often as you drink it.”  Every time you eat this bread and drink this cup the Lord’s death is remembered until He comes again in 1 Corinthians 11:24-26. The cup of the LORD’s Supper is the third cup of the Passover Seder is the  cup of redemption. In the midst of grief and adversity Jesus reaches out to wash the feet of His disciples. The bread of the LORD’s Supper afikomen with the matzoh broken paid for by Jesus body is eaten to end the passover meal.           4001So the Lord’s  Supper reminds believers of His Sacrifice as the perfect Passover Lamb and the fulfilment of the new covenant between GOD and man in Luke 22:20. It is traditionally believed God will send Elijah the prophet who never died but went up to heaven alive in a chariot.  For this reason, a place is set at every Passover Seder ritual meal for Eliyahu Hanavi, Elijah the Prophet in the hope he will arrive to signal imminent coming of Jesus“Behold, I send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great day of the LORD,” in Malachi 4:5. In 1 Corinthians 11:23-30, Christian believers come to Communion table, remembering the Blood Sacrifice of Jesus. Participation in a communion remembrance of Christ in verse 24 done in sombre atmosphere with reverence of Sacrifice Jesus made. Some churches dress in black to mark sadness, grieving or mourning. Some literary cry for Jesus like a real funeral. Others dress to mark the occasion in all white to celebrate the resurrection. All appreciate this Gospel message which communion symbolizes. Communion reflects on these personal intimacy and fellowship with God and one another. Yeshua broke in pieces the matzah, afikomen broken half-matzah, speaking of this Messianic Era, wrapped in hidden talmidim to remember Jesus by partaking to honour Jesus Sacrifice.1a4f2230f2863b89d83d8db59e1f18a9“Jesus said, This is My body given for you do this in remembrance of Me in Luke 22:19; and 1 Corinthians 11:24. Jesus the Messiah Yeshua initiated New Covenant meal as Jeremiah prophesied in Jeremiah 31:31. Jesus raised one of the traditional cups of wine, the Cup of Redemption, by saying, “This cup is poured for you as the new covenant in My blood in” Luke 22:20; and 1 Corinthians 11:25. Round matzah and 4 cups of Passover Yeshua shared during Seder corresponds to third cup of wine that is drunk at the traditional Seder meal.  The four cups of wine at Seder not a Biblical command but was instituted by the rabbinic law,  Yeshua kept this tradition. Then a third cup called Redemption Cup because it signifies the redemption from slavery in Egypt into freedom in Israel. This is symbolizing REDEMPTION of our souls from bondage of sin and spiritual death. “Messiah is Mediator of New Covenant, so those called receive God’s promised eternal inheritance. Jesus died a ransom to set all free from sin committed under first covenant in Hebrews 9:15. Jesus was crucified “Lamb of GOD who takes away sins of world,” in John 1:29.EucharistELCA.JPGJesus teaches them the greatest among us must serve as stewards and not demand to be served by others beneath them. True leadership is good example accelerated by process of principles of God’s Kingdom. So all are encouraged to look at the great example of Jesus to show compassion and kindness even while on the Cross. Jesus prayed, Father Forgive them for they know what they do so Christ accomplished forgiveness for us. We are reminded of His love for us to love others including enemies. We trust our future into Jesus Hands look to His Return. The Scriptures says always remember Jesus, “until He comes again” in 1 Corinthians 11:26. Now Jesus came on earth as Suffering Servant, however Jesus will come again as the Master Lord of lords. Jesus is Conquering King communion observance remind all that Jesus will come again. Look within and plead the Blood of Jesus to ask God for forgiveness. Ask the Holy Spirit to show any areas of your lives not pleasing to God in verse 28. Acknowledge any areas not pleasing to God, repent of all sins. Then take part in communion to eat and drink without damnation by  eating and drinking to honour the Body of Christ Jesus given as ransom in verse 29. Holy Communion remembers Jesus as token of partaking in His Blood Covenant. Disciples celebrated daily later changed into a once a week by some churches.8423Easter is the time for personal reflection to take stock of your lives and a time to seek God intensely in repentance and for restoration to reconnect with God. Communion is the ideal time to accept Jesus, to commit to God or recommit to Jesus Christ if born again Christians. 1 Corinthians 5:7,8 says purge out the old leaven to be new lump since you truly are unleavened. Christ our Passover Lamb Sacrifice kept the feast with the unleavened bread of love to stop malice of wickedness. Blood of Jesus sprinkled  on the conscience forms part of God’s Commands. Jesus’ Sacrifice restores the fellowship with Father God to draw us nearer to Him in repenting of sins. Accept Jesus Sacrifice to receive Free Gift He Purchased in Advance by the Blood of the Lamb of God Yeshua who takes away the sins of all. Christ Calls us into eternal inheritance of promise. God delights in Perfect Ultimate Sacrifice to transform hearts. God is at the Centre of worship and Adoration as Jesus sets us free from the evil master of sin through His death and resurrection gives us the power to be just, to love mercy, to walk humbly with God. God sends angels in obedience to God to protect us from eternal death in Jesus Name. When the young bull was slain before the LORD; Aaron’s sons the priests offered up the blood and sprinkle the blood around on the altar at the doorway of the tent of meeting in Leviticus 1:5The High Priest sprinkled the blood around the altar. Dipped his finger in it and sprinkled it seven times before the LORD, in front of veil in Leviticus 4:17. So Blood of Jesus Our High Priest Cohen HaGadol of New Covenant Sprinkled His Blood 7 times:

  • Yeshua sweated drops of blood when He prayed to the Father in the Garden of Gethsemane:  “And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.”  (Luke 22:44)
  • He was struck in the face until it was “marred beyond recognition.”  (Isaiah 52:14)
  • His back was scourged with a whip.  (Isaiah 50:6; Matthew 27:26)
  • The soldiers put a crown of thorns on His head.  (John 19:2)
  • They plucked out His beard.  (Isaiah 50:6)
  • They pierced His hands and feet.  (Psalm 22:16; Luke 24:39; John 20:27)
  • They pierced His side with a spear and blood and water came out.  (Psalm 22:14; Isaiah 53:5; John 19:34)

Those who believe in Jesus turn from sin and follow Him. Our New Covenant in Christ redeems us from all the other covenants of death, divinations and evil enchantments. Healing Power in Blood the Lamb sets us free in 2 Chronicles 30:13-20; Psalm 105:37. The children of Israel feast on the Passover Lamb great manifest healing power of the LORD. As Psalmist says there was not one feeble person among them when He brought them out of Egypt. And King Hezekiah restored feast of Passover so God healed people. Jesus the Lamb of for believers to spiritually speaking ‘feast’ upon Him as in Exodus 15:26; 3 John 2; Isaiah 53; Mark 16:15-20The Church of the First born Jesus is a precursor experience reminiscent of Christ in Exodus 4:22-23; Hebrews 12:22-24. Nation of Israel called the Church in the wilderness  in Acts 7:38. GOD’s Beloved First Born Son Jesus Redeemed us so Lamb redeemed first-born of Jews. THE FIRST PASSOVER happened 2500 years ago as Pharaoh released Jewish People in Exodus. The Passover is REMEMBRANCE of how the Jewish people had angel of death pass over homes saved by sign of blood on door posts. They quickly ate passover lamb meal standing at the time and in a hurry passed from Egypt and so forever delivered from Pharaoh’s bondage.The Angel of death visited Egypt in the tenth plague.  Death passed over  Hebrew and Egyptian homes so passover marks significance of blood of the lamb in obedience to the God of Israel. In Exodus 12:3-6, the word Pesach (Passover) comes from Peh Sakh which means the mouth opens and speaks.  God’s deliverance from death in Egypt under Pharaoh was symbolic of the blood atonement of Jesus for redemption of sin in Leviticus 17:11. Jesus the Passsover LAMB BROUGHT closeness to God, to be in His very Presence, in the Holy of Holies. As Believers, we understand that Passover is the mystery of God in Divine Exchange for sin. Redemption of mankind is marked through Jesus blood sacrifice to atone for sin. God’s plan for redemption helps understand Sacrificial death of coming Messiah Jesus the Passover Lamb perfectly. Jesus’ death on Roman execution cross for forgiveness, mercy, grace, wisdom love of God. To comprehend sanctity of the sacred blood sacrifice of Jesus helps to withstand the fierce storms of life in Christ Jesus. Solid foundation of the Word of God helps to successfully navigate through life. Jesus Christ, GOD’s first born Lamb and first born of Mary, is first born from death, and of the dead so the first born of all new creation. The first Adam sinned and brought all unborn race under physical and spiritual death. Jesus is New Adam Who saves as God’s first born to bring new second heavenly birth of redemption and salvation. God set aside Israel as the first born of nations in the new first born church.Paul in Hebrews said, Jesus is the Head of the church and First born. The blood of Jesus speaks better things than Abel’s. Accepting Jesus Christ, GOD’s First born Lamb brings New Spiritual birth. The Passover Holy Communion celebrates Jesus as the Passover Lamb of God. In that Upper Room Jesus was amongst his friends. Holy Communion Bible verses in the Bible talks about Holy Communion. At the Last Supper, Jesus instituted Eucharist, the Communion service,He took bread and wine, blessed them, and said to disciples. In Luke 22: 19-20, John 6:53 and 6:58, 1 Corinthians 11:24, participate in communion in fellowship remembrance of Christ. So looks within and asks the Holy Spirit for healing in Jesus Name. so believers in 1 Corinthians 11:26 eat this bread and drink the cup, to proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes. In John 6:53-56. Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. My flesh is true food and my blood is true drink. Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me and I in him. The Living Father God sent me so I live because of God.Whosoever feeds on Jesus’ Body symbol of bread and drinks wine representing Jesus’ Blood will live so have eternal life. In Luke 22:19-20, Jesus took bread, given thanks, broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” And likewise the cup after they had eaten saying, “This cup is poured out for you as the new covenant in my blood. 1 Corinthians 11:24-28, when he had given thanks He broke it, and said, “This is my body broken for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way he took the cup after supper saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes. Eating bread and drinking the cup of the Lord in a worthy manner is important for body and blood of the Lord. People examine self, eat bread and drink of the cup. In  Matthew 26:26-28 As they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is my body.” And he took a cup, he gave thanks and gave it to them, saying, “Drink of it, all of you, for this is my blood of the covenant, poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.John 6:53 says, Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. In Acts 2:42, They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship to the breaking of bread and the prayers. John 6:51 says, I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. And the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.” In Isaiah 53:5, Jesus wounded for our transgressions; crushed for our iniquities; upon him was chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed. In John 6:33, the Bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” In John 8:12, Jesus spoke saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” In Luke 22:19, Jesus took bread, gave thanks, broke it, gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” Seder Pesach Passover is celebrated to commemorate God’s Passover miracle.“Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation in Hebrews 1:14. Hebrews 1:14 tells us malakhim are “ministering spirits” sent to minister to the heirs of salvation.”The messages that angels send on behalf of God are two-fold.  Not only do they reveal His plans for their lives, they serve and to minister in times of any dire distress. Angels are involved in God’s warfare sent for our protection. They war with angels of darkness who try to prevent angels from performing their service to us. We ray directly to the Father God Who sends. Angels sent by God for protection and angelic intervention. Angels do nothing on their own accord listen for God’s Word so can dispatch angels based on this knowledge, using the Word of God to commission them. Greater spiritual service achieves great heights performed to God requires a person serves God not angels. “So do not forget to show your love hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people show hospitality to angels but without knowing in Hebrews 13:2. God’s angelic messengers are active in our midst, taking an interest in the affairs of men as they carry out God’s will. May each one of us be committed and active, in carrying out God’s will: “Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven in Matthew 6:10.

MENTAL HEALTH LIFE, W0RK

Mental health affects life, work, family, friends and colleagues. But businesses do not provide social care to deal with mental health issues. They avoid duty of care towards employees. Stress, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, zerohour contract put pressures on their finances. Competitive industry under the public’s scrutiny puts high profits before human needs. Some staff hide mental illness for fear of losing job so function at work. It  may show in work but is overlooked for pressure to perform and meet deadline. Global society imposes the perfectionist ideal culture employees with the mental health issue considered risk to company fired. Profit driven corporation remove cogwheels disrupting the robust, quick, smooth flow efficient and time-wasters. Mega companies put profit before staffs not performing to standard most people hide mental health invisible disability to earn a living. Lack of support, nurturing environment to meet needs in a team or get help issues affect work. Companies separate their staff’s personal life from business need. Private domestic matters cannot be brought into work place say a business is not charity or social welfare department. Conceal mental health and  depression or medication taken because they are seen as incompetent. Medical help from doctors request time off duty from exhaustion to rest recover. Some are seen as lazy must ‘pull themselves’ together. Pressure from the corporation in mechanised work cause distress but firef unemployed. Flexible hours means less income or technocrats keep up with constant changes to modern work placeFor the person with mental issues, this causes more stress they do not function fast enough as others. Their congenital brain constitution slower than a normal rate of performance need slower duties. There is hardly any slow performing job staff under pressure to meet targets and wants things done yesterday. Any queue formed by a staff member will receive complaints about delay waste of time or lack of excellent service. It is not wise a mental health staff warns a customer in advance. It will backfire, taunted teased by lack of understanding of the mental health issues. Kept behind the scenes so work slower to the annoyance of others who call them names. It causes distress, despair, anxiety and medication to deal with stress and depression. Frustration, fear of discrimination dismissal triggers ”health problems lose big dream jobs as Lufthansa captain long-haul pilot with a bipolar disorder, she told Bild. Wants to do something to change a whole system everyone knows his name to remember. Medical documents, existing illness and medical treatment, torn up sick notes recovered on day of plane crash. Hid his illness from his employer colleagues.” A staff did not reveal to employer concern compassionate enough to allow time off later pass. Reiner Kemmler psychologist training pilots said “knowing depression compromise airworthiness they hide it.” They do not want people to notice so it’s difficult,” Kemmler on Deutschlandfunk public radio stated. Its no excuse short-haul tragedy punish innocent victims by appalling decision. Its still important to ensure strategy in place not to humiliate people who feel insecure, less important in any category of work. Happenings in workplaces hard to swallow by those on the receiving end. Set up system to help reveal honestly and truthfully but not to risk promotion. Mental’s actions cause shock, anger their disturbed minds have distorted perception of real life events. cockpitThe German President Joachim Gauck, a Protestant pastor attended a memorial service in town on Friday. Montabaur, Mayor Edmund Schaaf urged reporters camped in community to show restraint towards Lubitz’s parents. A banker and church organist lived in the leafy quiet street.”Whether accusations against the co-pilot are true, there is sympathy with his family media told to be considerate.” The parent’s pain are worse by obvious circumstances. The question is, does life have value only with regard to status or career certain people feel more human. Those unable to achieve or accomplish a perceived standard seen as unworthy in society. Is there genuine acceptance of those feeling less competent a failure eliminated by set procedures? If true to oneself alternative ways of using skills, abilities and talents as a trainer, coach, consultant? Focus on strengths in your best interests to feel useful. Constantly changing jobs and a high maintenance, dynamic design business environment puts pressure on staff to adapt. One size fits all approach, training harms people with varied learning style of individual differences. Pressure is put to compare staff without understanding underlying problems. Companies, that do not want to know cause pain without the support, attention and focus needed to help with to prevent anger and revenge decisions. Domino effect compound drowsiness or side effect medication suicidal thoughts. Mental illness if improperly diagnosed affects self worth need help. Companies see mentally ill looks normal and sound sane force them to work as healthy staff but not mentally sound. A common test for wellness, fitness for work is, anyone who can walk, talk, eat, answer a phone unaided is fit to work. Psychotic episode of highs and lows are unpredictable and beyond control of person. But business pressure to gain profit at all cost affects and damages life in all areas. Worst of all overproduction of goods buried in a landfill preferred to adequate working hours of sanity. Doctor’s report ignored by companies over-rule health decisions of doctors to help people get better. The companies prefer to kill people softly to grind them to a halt for more profit.Fear of socializing with the mentally ill puts pressure on staff so triggers attack. Companies unprepared to nanny adults in their work environment. Banks earn money from investment so control large chunks of global economy, not prepared to invest in charities not for profit. Most respite centres in community specialise mental health units are closed down in the name of care in the community. The relatives sacrifice time care for mental health needs punished for not going out to work full-time. Caring for a mentally ill person not considered full-time work. Policies don’t care about taking care of a mentally ill, mocked as charity, socialist, communist by a capitalist privatisation no use for mentally ill in society. Data of list of 37 million companies are Scrooge penny-pinching to working classes who cannot afford private care. Companies have glamorous notice on display show how caring they are but in reality they are different. Most mentally ill fend for themselves neglected by the state. Social support plays a role in helping people through self – help associations on-line interaction with similar minded people. Global mega-corporations must take the mental health issue seriously, to provide care to deal with uncharted battlefield of David versus Goliath. Treatment and medications earns billions of dollars for pharmaceutical companies promoting drugs not the health of people. Reviews show the mentally ill deteriorates than recover to become fully functioning in society. Factors constraining mega-deal activity healthcare is stiff competition to outdo annual profits. A pharmaceutical company sees risk in mental behaviour, avoid integration of physical or mental healthcare treatment. Global Research,  shows Wal-Mart legally avoids paying for healthcare insurance and benefits to low ranking staff. Mega-corporation are sued in court costing billions of dollars than pay humans to feed or provide for families. So companies prefer machines, which do not eat, shop to buy products, or pay bills benefit from the wealth and prosperity. Deprive people from earning income to live basic lifestyle of necessity rich never live. Golden spoons in their mouths, afford best medical care luxury and privilege. Lack understanding for others turn their back on helping them.IMG-20200810-WA0011 It cost them less dollars to set up proper health care for a staff disclosing mental illness. It saves mega companies overall high costs, damages, lost plane, earnings or compensation for victim’s family and recovery of planes and bodies. The DNA identification process or replacement of air plane costs millions of dollars. So to prevent loss of priceless lives, money, silver, gold, assets, health policy must be trusted, transparent to help staff treated feel respected with dignity as promoting business. Members of big corporations must learn to deal with a mental health issue in workplace without bias. Global education on mental health must deal with work place needs. Banks, pharmaceutical companies must value life above bank balance. Mental healthcare teams must liaise with mega – marketing well-being needs of staff. The company CEO must undertake compulsory undercover boss programme in their work environment. To learn how staff function, to help get better, be efficient, treated well. EU laws stop pilots flying inhumane hours to put more stress on a pilot to puts lives at risk. The companies receive insurance payments if accidents happen. But emotional trauma affects a family for life. The cost of cutting losses measures is scandalous profit of seared conscience. Mentally ill staff depressed affects passengers of great value to God their maker. Natural process makes the designed engines not guaranteed and incapable of detecting if pilot in cockpit triggers dangerous manoeuvre before it is too late. “They do not have expertise to recover planes about to crash.” And a superman does not intervene in real life to stop tragedy caused by human errors, mechanical failure, suicide of terrorism. Conscious efforts made to actively listen will help support megacorporation who put profit first. Australian International Pilots Association president Nathan Safe said, airlines are getting better dealing with pilot’s mental health issues. Some adapt free lance pilot support network flexible route so staff redeployed. Get a psychiatric help, selfcare or medication.f079056b8b4203b4f74c6526481b94cdBe encouraged to share your innermost thoughts and feelings without fear of reprisals. Where there is a will is a way and a win win situation for all involved. Extreme mental illnesses like Gadarene insane Jesus delivered from a thousand demons entered pigs drowned in sea of Galilee. God’s Holy Spirit power in Jesus Name heals insane in Matthew 8.28-34; Luke 26-39 in Bible. So some mentally ill people possessed by evil spirits need the spirits cast out to restore normal mind in Jesus Name by trained exorcist. Stress and chronic anxiety pressure untreated causes mental illness. A loving support of friends, family, colleagues, loved ones can help to restore to the rightful mind and regain their dignity. Its difficult to determine who is mad. Some look good,  function well but beneath the surface is deeper emotional turmoil of lunacy. The people around them may not recognise it due to fear of embarrassment stigma. Trauma, child birth, divorce, problems of life, circumstances can cause mental illness. Some need intervention from an observant friend, a family member who notices bizarre behaviours. But may not accept anything is wrong with them and turn on those trying to help. Some reject help think its intrusive but do the right thing quickly to save their lives. Chronic stress if undealt with causes depression damage health. Some medications cause suicidal thoughts so watch for changes and bizarre behaviour out of character. Mentally ill have distorted perception in life unaware of their strange behaviour. Loving help restores them to succeed. In Deuteronomy 28:28 God curses people with madness so need to repent ask God for mercy, forgiveness in Jesus Name. So live for God and obey God’s commands.

JESUS COMFORTS MOURNERS

Jesus said, “Blessed” are the people who mourn, they will be comforted by God the Comforter, Jesus and Holy Spirit. So bereaved family mourns with hope in Christ. Matthew 5:4’s “blessed” in a time of mourning means the blessed person enters eternal rest after painful times in agony. Death relieves pain and suffering of loved ones but affects mourners who don’t feel blessed at all. One doesn’t feel “blessed” watching loved ones endure a trauma of pain to die. Jesus understands hurts, loss, agony, pain, grief, sorrow so comforts those who grieve and mourn. Weeping endures for a season, but joy comes in morning hope in resurrection. All who mourn in Christ, sow in tears, shall reap in joy in heaven. Jesus knows pain of mourning on earth. He endured torture betrayed a Man of Sorrows who wept many times in His most traumatic intense moments of agony in pain. Jesus communed with Father God in pain He sweats blood in Garden of Gethsemane. Jesus sad suffered in pain for all world’s sin on His Shoulders. Yet the hour came Jesus willingly endured adversity. Jesus went extra mile to forgive, heal soldier’s ear cut off by Peter. God sent angel from heaven to comfort Jesus. Jesus sweated drops of His blood falling down on the ground. Jesus went on the cross, obeyed God unto death in agonising pain. But is mocked by chief priests, captains, elders and people. Jesus did good all His Life in His ministry. Jesus wept because of sins of not treating God  with dignity, honour and respect. They lack understanding so hated Jesus’ ministry did not reconnect with God to appreciate and value Jesus. Jesus wept in anguish but Peter, James, John fell asleep did not pray with Jesus as expected. Jesus was in shock they did not support Him in the hour of His last intimate moment of life on earth before crucifixion. So Jesus prayed to God the Father in Gethsemane for strength. Sadness, loss, sorrow, unbearable pain is felt by Mary Magdalene, Jesus’ Mother the disciples grieve at Jesus’ trial before crucifixion. Jesus wept sweats of blood in anguish for enemy gaining the world but losing their souls. During His agony Jesus asks for God’s Help though Jesus is Perfect.  Under immense pressure of the weight of sins of mankind, its His most trusted inner-circle disciples to let Jesus down. Jesus was traumatised without a caring help of those supposed to be His loyal friends when Jesus needed them most. Jesus sweated drops of blood as He felt abandoned, lack of sensitivity of those surrounding him. Jesus wept for them for lack of spiritual vision, lack of Godly knowledge. This caused them to misdirect hatred towards Jesus. So Jesus depends on God’s Holy Spirit to comfort and see Him through His grief and His mourning. Jesus comforts us because He went through grief, hurts, sorrow, pain, rejection, knows abandonment, hatred. Jesus understands grief and mourning. Jesus’ Crucifixion in a movie, “Passion of Christ” depict stressful, mournful events in storms of life. Jesus mourners set the great example to mourn with hope even when Judas Iscariot betrayed Him. With religious leader elders, captains, Roman soldiers didn’t know or fully understand great salvation to redeem all. Jesus did not satisfy their material needs so angry He did not deliver them from Roman imposters but told depend on God. And its normal to cry as a man because God, Jesus, Joseph, king David, Hezekiah and others cried in the Bible. Luke 22:7-38, says after Jesus ate passover meal with disciples in the upper room, Jesus went to garden of Gethsemane to pray as He waited for His hour to come. Jesus Calls on God for strength as a mortal man felt crushed by pain of sorrow sweats blood. Betrayed by Judas Jesus was taken to a trial before chief priests, Pontius Pilate, Herod in Luke 22:54-23:25.Jesus was in agony yet passionate obeys God to death as crowd shouted, crucify Him. Christ reveals passion for people, suffering for sin willingly went on the cross on our behalf. In critical moments of grief and sorrow God sent an angel to to comfort Jesus. Jesus knew God’s grief in sorrow redeem mankind prophesied. Passion week for believers a passionate worship time to proclaim Gospel and to Honour God. Romans 8:38-39 says, “I am convinced not death or life or angels or principalities or things present or things to come or powers or height or depth or any creature is able to separate us from love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”Jesus was smitten, afflicted, not valued, or appreciated, whipped with 39 lashes wounded for our transgression, bruised for our iniquities. And the punishments, chastisement of our peace put on Jesus so by His stripes we are healed in Jesus Name says Isaiah 53:4-5. Jesus scourged at the hands of Roman soldiers, carried a cross to on Jerusalem Dolorosa way of sorrows. Jesus was crucified at Golgotha before sabbath day. Jesus the sacrificial Lamb of God laid down His life for all of mankind. His pain and suffering cannot be compared or His mother’s grief. Jesus bore our griefs, carried our sorrows and suffered for us. Believers too suffer for sharing Gospel message of resurrection.Jesus suffered shame, disgraced, was in prolonged, agonizing, pain and tortured proved His love for all. Be encouraged in Christ Jesus, maximise your strength in God and repair damaged feelings of discomfort experienced. Deal with your painful emotions of grief by expressing them verbally. To help get a devastating loss out of your system and avoid your depression. Pressure mounts to survive no matter what for Jesus has conquered death. God’s gift of eternal life in glory means mourning is the greatest times of challenging a true believer’s faith stand.Jesus_CrossChrist triumphed over death to give us eternal life so feel confident with a safe assurance of reunion of a loved one/s in heaven. Think how the loved ones feel about your pain to dwell on God’s love. God has not given you spirit of fear but love and a sound mind. Reliving painful memory experience is sad but ease pain of loss of loved ones by life reflections. Value precious memories to laugh in the midst of tears to help recovery, healing process. Cherish loved ones influence in good thoughts, feelings and behaviours. Lean on God’s counsel, wisdom, comfort and accept help. The soldiers compelled passer-by Simon of Cyrene, a black man from Libya Africa a father of Alexander and Rufus to help carry Jesus’ Cross. Direct questions towards God but do not accuse or blame God for not being with you to allow the tragedy. Keep a journal if appropriate continue to read Bible for a personal growth in Christ. Remember loved ones will not want to see your life ruined by their passing. God still Loves you even if you said wrong things in rage or anger. God forgives you and as far as the East is far from the West so God removes sin from you, so does not remember sin your any more or should you. Consider grief, sorrow, pain, and the torment felt by God, Mary, mother, disciples, relatives seeing Jesus in pain.God sent Jesus and paid for all your sins at the Calvary cross at Golgotha, Israel. Some feel physically weak, not ‘present absent in pain, scared, need comforting in difficult times. Lost, confused, angry, guilty for not having closure in the loss of spouse, loved one, friend, companion, confidant, overwhelmed, in chaos so life is in emotional state of upheaval. Jesus sees your loss, pain, grief, torment and mankind saved is loved forever. In the resurrection you will meet loved onces again so death is not the end of life. The person passed into eternal life to God’s Presence forever no more tears or pain. Loved ones shocked by sudden death of the person go through sad emotions of abandonment, disappointment or anger at God for snatching them away. But its not God its the devil who comes to steal, kills to destroy but God gives abundant life and life more abundantly in Christ. The life in eternity lasts longer than life on earth. Jesus took away death’s sting to us give eternal life as children of God.Jesus forgave those who struck Him and turned His cheeks to those who plucked His beard. Jesus did not hide His face from shame of spitting on him in Isaiah 50:6. Loss feels like end of one’s world,  feeling isolated alone and in shock, so struggling inside, deeply traumatized, no joy, no sleep not eat properly, endure pain of loss changes lifestyle. To recover from the traumatic experience requires God’s Divine help to lift up from lowest darkest moments in agony and pain. On the Cross Christ our Lord reached out to save robber on cross yet Jesus in pain.God’s is Sovereign LORD so in adversity Jesus sets good example to sustain life of His mother and discople He left behind despite His own troubles. God’s unique sufficient way, reflects mercy, grace, and compassion to reconnect us deeper to be faithful in grief. The Holy Spirit is comforter providing strength to nourish soul to cope. Self-pity misery causes low immune system trauma, lack of proper self-care by grief but hold on to God. Remember your loved one is rejoicing in heaven is not suffering on earth. The pain of changing plans, future cut short and missing loved one is the worst time. Have confidence in God to overcome to endure to the end to be saved in Christ.
Jesus deals with the countless people in grief mourning in hope by Grace of God. Some feel vulnerable, helpless, hopeless in pain ask God to take over your life in Christ Jesus to endure loss. Mourning is reminder to mankind of the internal emotional mental battle powers beyond human control. Death strips lives in an untamed territory in the valley of the shadow of death. Mourning is the dark place of downcast feelings, God lifts up to GLORIFY HIS HOLY MIGHTY NAME. Strength comes from God’s Peace in the heart is known by those who experience loss of loved ones. When tears become food, love lost in this life does not need to be cut from mourning but celebrated.Trust in God to help overcome the sad, deep painful feelings of sorrow, despair, and the low mood to remain dignified. Understand meaning of resurrection in Christ with confidence in up and downs as the follower of God. Jesus endured inhospitable sorrowful moments in life Jesus suffered. Believers willingly suffer in proclaiming message of Jesus death and His resurrection. Change a negative perspective to trust in God again. This is important as you are the living sermon watched for testimony. God will defend and sustain your life despite adversity. Continue to make Christ your first love as Mary Martha’s sister did and mother of Jesus comforted Jesus in His sorrow. Jesus is the Only Way an anchor of hope who gives eternal life to reconnect us to God to see our loved ones again. Within sad disappointments is the foundational truth our life is nothing without Christ. Despite adversity pray to God say even if you slay me yet will I trust and praise you more in Job 13:15. Maintain Godly way before God in tragedy or afflictions, hope in God. The best you can do is to increasing awareness to draw near God and let go, allow God to guide you. God recreates ultimate desires to will to live by example of Jesus in agony on cross. Jesus rose to the occasion obeyed God in suffering. God enriches a faith drowned by grief, pain of sorrow. God’s life-giving source rescues us from the reality of conflicting thoughts or actions. Seek the support and help of others and be true to yourself. Loved ones feel guilty and helpless so be grounded in faith in God to lean on Christ. Jesus was buried and remained in the tomb until Sunday but He rose again in three days. Wholeness comes from you investing time to draw closer to God in the midst of adversity. Do cry but to listen with full attention in contemplating heaven as your final port of call of incarnation. God shines a light in the darkest moments of an emotional battlefield grief turmoil. Through tears, prayer, joy or silence, worship music, reflect on photos, pictures and honour the memories of your loved ones.
Do not lose faith God is always with you so you are not alone. Believers in God have direct connection to God no matter how much human love you enjoy in this life in abundance. When life is difficult, bereaved in sorrow or pain causes some to blame God to drift away from God’s Presence. Its TIME GOD’S PROTECTION IS NEEDED MOST. A physical affection, intimacy, interaction, hugs, touches of a loved one cut short, lost or bereavement is REAL but God is still with you. Jesus is with you look beyond grief and Rest in God’s Deep Love to give meaning to life. During the best or worst of times in life, Bible encourages believers to celebrate God even in the darkest moments of life. God is with us on mountain top good time life at its best. God is also in valley when things unexpectedly change times you need intense energy level in Christ for lifestyle reality to deal with trauma. High levels of self – criticism and lack of self-confidence frighten causes fear and uncertainty of future. May disrupt God’s design of human interaction need most. So challenge is let God be Strong Tower Fortress of Hope in chaos of life’s brutal events. Crowd, condolence sympathiser, goes but Christ fills Love void in reality.
Do not feel lost without an affirmation of emotional love that connects you to another in love. The truth is Only God is capable of satisfying innermost desires. Nobody, including loved ones is able to fill the void in the heart only God Can so the Holy Spirit Comforts in Christ Jesus. Godly Hope does not disappoint. Love of God is poured in our hearts by the Holy Spirit in Romans 5:5. Purest Sacrificial Love is Given by Christ for Greater Love has no man than Christ Who laid down His Life ransom for many to save from sin in John 15:13. Love God in Christ with gratitude. And so three days after Sabbath, Jesus gloriously resurrected. God helps us through our father’s death to draw us closer to God so right in our deepest darkest moments of life. Mother led us to God through the Blood of Jesus to have deeper love for God’s Comfort. Our trust in God increased to a whole new level to experience Deeper love of God’s Goodness, Compassion unknown before mourning. We miss loved ones asleep in the LORD blessed, Comforted by Father God our LORD in Christ. The love of God reigns forever. In the valley of shadow of death Jesus the Lily of the valley is with each one. Confidence in God empowers you to recognise all the frustrations overcomed by peace of God in your spirit though feeling outside is facing challenges beyond your depth or outside your comfort zone. May God our Father cover you with love in Christ and give you rest to heal you in Jesus Name. If Jesus tarries for rapture or loved one passes into heaven you will meet again. Elijah asked God for chariot into heaven to escape evil Jezebel tormenting whole nation. Jesus ascended alive into heaven so Christian believers like Elijah will go alive into heaven, will never see death.

His Reading is Your Reading

His Reading is Your Reading

tumblr_nkn76otHes1uoegmbo1_500

Upon entering the new Andrew Unumi recently set himself the challenge of reading up to 300 books by the end of this year. So far he has succeeded in hitting a base target of 20. The average reader reads 10-15 Books a year. When we read upon other cultures and ideas our own knowledge expands and this creates and experience of the future or rather ‘ideas’ we want to go towards, in our minds. This was the premise of starting this blog.

Andrew has touched on various self help and personal development topics ranging all the way from, networking to thinking skills. One of his most recent readings has been the Art of Thinking Clearly by Rolf Dobelli. The book touches on almost 62 cognitive biases and regular thinking patterns we fall prey to in everyday life.

One of the more interesting biases in the book is the ‘Confirmation Bias’ this touches on the idea that once we confirm value in a idea or rather confirmation of it we ‘jump’ at the chance and cast out all possible negativity this is something that as human beings we have to rid ourselves of in order to move forward.

One of the safest ways to guarantee success is to rid of ourselves of a guarantee and instead focus on the ideal, within ourselves, that are going to carry our goals and ambitions into the future. Originally when Rolf wrote the book he started investing after seeing much successes in his businesses and upon observing other investors fail heavily and give into greed he decided that him and famed investor Nassim Taleb were going to create a set of cognitive biases that we has humans oft fall prey to. I don’t want to give away too much of the book as this may spoil the whole experience.

JESUS’ BLOOD IS A BLESSING

Since birth of Jesus His enemies hated Him, elders and leaders connived to get rid of Jesus due to envy, jealousy by resentment. Bitterness, hatred anger of king Herod to slaughter the innocent children from ages 0-3 years in Bethlehem, Nazareth, Ramah, all coastal regions. In Matthew 2:16, three wise kings warned by God in a dream left without betraying Jesus. So Jesus’ family fled to Egypt, 3 years. A furious Herod killed all male children. Bereaved grief stricken families lament beloved children never forgot loss. Misdirect pain, rage anger associated with Jesus for revenge. So a 33 year’s previous attempts to kill Jesus, Matthew 3:26, says chief priests, elders, people assembled in the palace of the high priest plot to arrest Jesus by a cunning device to kill him. Jesus was misrepresented to kill Him. These families never accepted Jesus and wanted Him killed. Jesus did good healing all oppressed by devil hated. Exact revenge inciting hatred against Jesus in Matthew 27:24, Mark 15:6-15, Luke 23:18-24, John 18 : 40-19:15  not a murderer Herod.Passover feast custom released one prisoner chose Barabbas a murderer not Jesus. Pilate said, “You want release of King of the Jews knew chief priests handed Him by envy to stir the crowd so Barabbas is released. “Crucify Him” Pilate fears riot released Barabbas. Asked, “What evil did He do? They said, “Crucify Him” so Jesus is scourged is delivered to be crucified. Pilate washed his  in front of crowd said, I am innocent of His blood see to it yourselves. Crowd said let His blood be on us and our childen. In Luke 23:34,  Jesus prayed to Father God to forgive they knew not what they were doing. Good News is JESUS FORGIVES MULTITUDES OF CROWDS CONTINUES TO FORGIVE US. CROWD’S are God-fearing Jews and people of all nations under heaven in Jerusalem.A  Jewish convert proselyte or Christian followers of Jesus with devout Jews in to worship God at a Passover festival. Acts 2:1-13, Jews, pilgrim converts in Roman Empires, Parthia, Media, Elam Iran, Crete Arabs of Euphrates River to Egyptian territories of King David and Solomon. In Luke 2:5-11, crowds: Mesopotamia Iraq, Judea, Asia Minor provinces of Turkey, Pontus, Phrygia, Cappadocia, Pamphylia, North Africa, Libya, Cyrene and Ethiopia. So crowds represents mankind manipulated, Jesus FORGIVES  ALL. So accept and receive Jesus as your Lord and Saviour. Pilate fear of crowd rushed decision imposed by Chief Priests who paid Thomas 30 pieces of silver to betray Jesus. Pilate released Barabbas, Jesus scourged, was crucified. JESUS FORGIVES  ALL JEWS, CROWDS, CHILDREN, mankind today. Jesus’ forgives all puts choice of  death NOT on Jews. In prophecy Jesus to die for sin punishment NOT put it on Jews. The Romans crucified Jesus in Luke 21:20-24.  500 people in daily are flogged, scourged, crucified. Crowd was incited by elders, Chief priests, but Jews for generations are blamed. Go through pogroms so suffer by hate attack unjustified to “enforce” their punishments. Jesus FORGAVE THEM. As God in Bible in Jeremiah 31:29, Ezekiel 18:1-4, 25-32 says fathers will not eat sour grapes and children’s teeth be set on edge. Jesus knew crowd includes all these nations represented in Jerusalem that day. Descendant children didn’t make past decisions imposed on them bear no part Jesus forgives all. Kings of earth take stand so rulers in counsel is against God and His Anointed in Psalm 2:2 to fulfil prophecy of a crucifixion. Barabbas shocked, repents Jesus INNOCENT took his place is one Crucified. Jesus saved a thief on cross. So secular world screams crucify Jesus to prevent them in continuing the ministry of Jesus. The media and chief priests are trying to convince Pilate to give up Jesus in place of Barabbas to be crucified. Nations or crowds prefer Barabbas not Jesus so all sin against God killing Jesus. Not Jewz elders, Chief priests it’s all people in creation. Mankind is guilty by sin of Adam and Eve so forgiven by SEED Christ Jesus.  ????????Matthew 26:51, Mark 14:47, John 18:10 say Jesus rebuked, forgave Peter who drew sword so smote Malchus servant soldier of high priest. Peter cut off his right ear healed by Jesus who made Peter head of the church. Christ paid price tag cost His Life Sacrificed for sin to redeem us all in Jesus Name Jesus prayed to forgive all mankind in the crowd. In Mark 15:22 took Jesus to the Golgotha Place of Skull. Devil tries to stop Jesus’ ministry saw Jesus rise so God could set mankind free, but chose the SIGNIFICANT BLOOD SACRIFICE OF ONLY BEGOTTEN SON JESUS. Jesus, a Jew saves all souls of people who accept Him. All who repent and accept Jesus marked on forehead saved from tribulation in Matthew 24:15-22, Revelation 6:19-21, Daniel 11:40-45, Jeremiah 30:3-9, Ezekiel 20:33-38, Zechariah 13:9; 14:1-5. Attacks of Jewish anti-Semitism hatred lack  an understandings of Bible. God’s punishment God of high priests and chief priests, kings, queens, nobles, captains, rich,  fearful who do not accept redemption of  Jesus as Saviour. Auschwitz-Birkenau Poland May 27, 1944 Platform show precious families, children in holocaust. Blood of Jesus protects souls by redemption does not need you to take vengeance on his behalf to attack Jews. All lost children of God ever forget the child will reunite in eternity on passing into heaven. God’s heart is full of sorrow as Jesus was crucified God’s grief was unbearable as a loving parent understand. Jesus said, let children come to Jesus for theirs is Kingdom of God. So Jesus washes sins in HIS BLOOD. To stop suffering of all children in all generations in Jesus Name. The BLOOD OF JESUS is a sacred blessing cover you. Memorial to children of Lidice village in the Czech Republic 20 km is north west Prague marks the Nazi’s eradication during World War II on 10th June 1942. Adult men shot women to the Ravensbrück concentration camp so children gassed. 340 people, killed 192 men, 60 women and 88 children.jewish children holocaustInnocent children paid the hefty price for the decisions of adults. The world treats children badly as infants die from preventable diseases. Jesus loves all children don’t want any hurt or abused, molested, killed. The BLOOD OF JESUS is a blessing covering for believers. REPENT AND ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST AS SAVIOUR as BLOOD OF JESUS CANCELS all curses Jesus took on all curses. GOD was sad by man’s condition GOD SENT JESUS AS ULTIMATE SOLUTION to break the curse of sin. Jesus Blood invoked by the crowd is incited by Chief priests due to envy yet saves all. Jesus, is a Jew God sent to save all mankind by His Blood Blessing. Jesus Arose a MORE POWERFUL CONQUEROR of death. CHRIST is ONLY SAVIOUR ALIVE empty grave is in JERUSALEM, ISRAEL. CHRIST IS ALIVE FOREVER IN HEAVEN is coming back as God’s ONLY CHOSEN APPROVED WAY. Jesus LOVES all children of the world and forgives families as monument at Liverpool Street Station London pays tribute to Britons who rescued the 10,000 Jewish children from the Nazi persecution. Jewish parents sent children to safety in Britain so never saw parents again. These children over 80 years old meet regularly, remember holocaust.jewish children rescued in britainJesus took on grief carried sorrows, yet not esteemed. Stricken, smitten, afflicted and wounded for all our transgressions was bruised for our iniquities. The chastisement of our peace was upon Him, by His stripes we are healed in Isaiah 53:4-5. So God saw Jesus in agony, KNEW IT WAS ONLY WAY MESSAGE OF SALVATION WILL SINK IN LOUD AND CLEAR to all the stubborn rebellious sinful peopld. Believe in Jesus Son of God sent into  the world, PROMOTE JESUS CHRIST. Greater love has no man than this to lay His life as ransom for many. Jesus a PERFECT SINLESS ma died to SAVE sinners. 17 So they clothed him in purple cloak, a crown of thorns put it on Him. 18 They saluted him, “Hail, King of the Jews!” 19 They strike his head with reed, spit on him, knelt down to him. 20 They mock him strip off purple cloak no clothes on is crucified. Christ overcame devil by HIS as BLOOD OF LAMB’S TESTIMONY IN JESUS BLOOD BLESSING BY COVENANT. Jesus loves all the children so forgives all families, children from all backgrounds into God’s LOVING PRESENCE. Join celebration of CHRIST, SAVIOUR AT CENTRE OF at Easter and eating food or Easter eggs. So Christian believers don’t ‘throw baby out with the bath water at Easter’ originally not about Christ. Don’t abandon Easter so refuse to teach the children about Christ to give room to devil trying to control it. The devil knew God means serious business by Giving AN ULTIMATE SACRIFICE MATCHLESS PRICELESS PRECIOUS SON JESUS’ LIFE BLOOD to redeem all mankind. Before soldiers led Jesus from that governor’s headquarters Jesus could call on whole heavenly battalion to defend Him. Jesus chose to allow His crucifixion given as a ransom for many. Brothers and sisters in Christ have confidence to enter Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus. A new living way opened by curtain rip in His body.  JESUS FORGIVES all so FORGIVE yourself. God’s entry ticket to heaven to enjoy ETERNAL LIFE is in Jesus Name. Itonly Jesud our High priest over house of God let us draw near to God in a sincere heart with full assurance faith brings in Hebrews 10:19–22. In Hebrew korbanot root word k-r-v (קרב), means to be close, karov. Christ Sacrifice accepted by God restores closeness, intimacy to God and His people. Iniquity and sins separates from God stops closer relationship with God. God’s Face is hidden from sin so He doesn’t hear in Isaiah 59:2. Atonement Blood of Jesus God forgives so cancels death God’s Gift is eternal life in Christ. REPENT AND ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST AS SAVIOUR so BLOOD OF JESUS CANCELS curses because Jesus took on the curse for all. Jesus, a Jew sent by God saves all mankind. Holy Communion remembers Jesus daily as token partaken of Blood Covenant. Christian believers serve God at home in community proclaims Jesus Christ is Lord. Believers serve Jesus as Joshua 24:15 says greatest living history is crucifixion resurrection of Jesus. 
In grief, sorrow, pain and torment Jesus saved you forever. The Blood of Messiah offered Himself without blemish to God, to clean conscience from dead works to serve the living God in Hebrews 9:14. So no more guilt or condemnation as the Word of God says those in Christ Jesus the Messiah are free.“There is therefore no condemnation to those in Yeshua the Messiah walk in Holy Spirit in Romans 8:1. Christ resurrected triumphed over death declared sin finished forever. As passover blood of lamb applied to door posts of Hebrew in Egypt Jesus Blood is applied to the believer’s heart by faith.  Washed  clean from guilty conscience of shame of past sins. Draw near by a true heart in full assurance of faith, hearts sprinkled from evil conscience and our bodies washed with living word living water in Hebrews 10:22. Pure water in mikvah ritual water immersion cleans is symbolic of your new spiritual birth.God’s Only Son Jesus like Abraham did by Faith in God rewarded by sheep in place of Isaac precursor to redemption of Christ Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. GOD saw Jesus in grief of pain but gave ONLY FAVOURITE BELOVED SON to die for humanity. God CHOSE TO MANIFEST Jesus as God in human form. Jesus like God Invincible descended to save not punish mistakes. God came to interact in Christ a human. God could send an Archangel Gabriel or Michael to die on the cross for us. Some angels failed God, unreliable didn’t fulfil task to God’s satisfaction so abandoned  heaven. Settled on earth, intermarried humans thrown out of heaven rebelled and joined ranks with God’s arch-enemy the devil in heaven. Thrown down onto earth. God shows Great Love in Sending Jesus His Only Son. Easter risen saviour Jesus Christ, money, possessions owned silver, gold, limitless riches can’t save you so God Sent Christ. God’s Heart is so RICH gave you eternal life SACRIFICING HIS SON JESUS. This is God’s GREATEST TRUTH IN RESURRECTION MIRACLE. Enemies do yourself a favour so turn to TO GOD humbly ask in Jesus Name no matter how big a giant you are like Goliath. God DEFEATS AND SLAYS all HIS enemies so CHOOSE to REDEEM your household. Enter this veil of JESUS’ ULTIMATE BLOOD SACRIFICE in Jesus Name. Torn veil is Yeshua who died on the Roman Cross for sins to redeem you to God. Regains lost ground of devils attempt to destroy God does not mind time of day, year Jesus celebrated. God wants you to celebrate JESUS CHRIST MAIN reason for each Easter Season. Celebrate Christ in groups or in church, family, with God by Holy Spirit and angels. Christ is at Central of Gospel Message on God’s Sovereignty. The Believers celebrate work of Jesus, Glorify God. Christian community know Christ’s Easter holiday mark His resurrection. Easter is God-sent open door so all Church families invite unbelievers to join in the celebrations. Believers unite to Glorify God acknowledge Christ, Saviour, King of king’s Priceless Blood Gift blessing is free to all mankind who believe to receive.

THE PRODIGAL SON RETURN

wp-1573836551850.jpgJesus told a story of the prodigal son to teach parable of GOD’S LOVE FOR ALL people. The prodigal son in Luke 15:11-32 is God’s forgiveness as father by HIS UNCONDITIONAL LOVING CHARACTER. God is constant in the story despite pain caused by the son who had everything to make his life happy but abandoned his family. He was arrogant, rude, naive so selfish. His greed drove him to leave his rich family thinking he could cope without his father’s wealth or support. He was ungrateful, unthankful for those privileges enjoyed, had many servants, housekeepers, butlers, abundant wealth at his disposal. But he thought the grass is greerner so asked for his inheritance and left to squander it all. Born with the golden spoon in his mouth had a luxury mansion, lived a rich superabundant lavish life. Servant catered to his every need, butlers provided a distinguished service of highest standard so he lacked nothing. He had the best of everything money could buy indulged, led a spoilt brat lifestyle. Had best gourmet chefs to prepare Michelin 5 star meals of several courses and best desserts each meal. He lived in the best postcode gated area so he had it all, what others only dream of. In spite of luxury prefer vanity pleasure in pursuit of happiness so he felt caged. Thought father controlled his life telling him to behave well took on the world by himself. Without a structure or support could not figure out how to survive on his own. He squandered his inheritance on bad friends after his money indulged in sexual promiscuity without restraint. Rejected his family’s business took off to seek fun or make his own money, lacked experience. No company hires without a skill or talent for good success he wastes inheritance, partied, women, drugs, out of control, money run out and dumped.It was a big mistake to ask his father for his share of wealth as father is alive. He was shocked, heartbroken knew his son was immature and vulnerable. He led a protected sheltered, life never ventured out on his own before couldn’t take care of himself, cook or manage his finances. His father obliged under pressure or the influence of bad friends. Left home for adventures and fun. His father kept in touch reassured him he was welcome home anytime he changed his mind. So after spending his inheritance he had no friend to feed him in expensive city. He ends up doing odd jobs in a pig’s sty, his upbringing didn’t destine him to be was starving so he ate the pig’s food.Later came to his senses so remembers his father’s love, abundant provisions and wealth. He recalled numerous left over meals thrown away in his father’s household. So he made up his mind to go back to his beloved father who cared about him. His father never gave up on him lways prayed for his safety. It was a few many months later, left debauchery life back home to his father. The family missed him and cried for him. His place at dinning table empty and his bedroom intact of precious memories of growing up. Seeing him again was miracle hoped and prayed for. Appeared so dishevelled in tattered filthy clothes unkempt didn’t  wash for days. His father run so fast to meet and welcome him, hugs, embraces him lovingly delighted to see him alive. He never lost hope of his son restoring his life found him again. The son asked his father to forgive him and treat him as a servant for wasting family’s wealth. The father put the best clothes on him, a signet ring on his finger and nice shoes on his feet. The father organised a big party to eat and celebrate. All rejoiced and welcomed prodigal son home but older brother was angry and furious for good treatment given vagabond son by his father. He heard the music, dancing found out it was in honour of his brat brother. So elder son refused to partake in the party, condemned his brother for squandering inheritance on prostitutes. He confronted their father for allowing his brother back and throwing the party after wasting shared family inheritance.Older brother was angry, disappointed their father never acknowledged him or honoured him as a loyal faithful son or throw him a party. His anger is justified but bitterness and unforgiveness is not.  The tragedy is people lost in the world, urged on, leave home, take on the world without maturity. They assume money is everything, things automatically work out. Young naive people are pushed too hard too soon to leave home for greener pastures end up without ability to cope on their own. The misconception is once in the company of friends, support each other all is well. Family disintegrates by a system that should train young adults to value, respect and honour family. The family must train them until the cortex is fully formed and matured enough to be capable of living on their own. These policy makers ensure their young ones have adequate provisions and resources enabled to enjoy life from generation to generation. Hire chaperones or security, body guards ensure safety well-being of their own family members. But a naive person harm themself. A self-righteous elder brother thinks he deserves better treatment. His father’s silver and gold, diamonds, wealth and assets belong to him more than others. But by arrogance and impudence, device divisive policies to deprive others. Harass and intimidate people forced to seek help in the wrong places. Refuse to acknowledge the snare set up to make life difficult for people so Father God Almighty, Jehovah Nissi says HE FORGIVES so expect people to do so. God doesn’t approve persecuting others by the few greedy indulgent people.Some seem to get away with wickedness in high places controlling minds to sin. Jesus conquered principalities, powers, made a show of them. God is watching and taking notice on behalf of deprived people. God welcomes with open arms all deprived and will comfort them like Lazarus in heaven and the rich man in hell. Jesus said the two sons sin against Father God, one wasted material goods belonging family divided to him but the older one living at home angry refused to forgive his brother. God said forgive to be forgiven by God. The younger son returned journey from the far country wasted substance with riotous living. A famine in the land made him poor and had no job. He went and joined himself to a citizen of that country sent into his fields to feed swine. And filled his belly with husks swine ate no one helped him recalls servants of father, bread enough and to spare perishing with hunger. He went back home to his father so said to him Father, I sinned against heaven and you so not worthy to be called your son make me hired servant. His father saw him, had compassion on him, ran, hugs, kisses and embraces prodical son home. 024-prodigal-son300x225elder-300x225-1So son repents begs his father for mercy and the father said to servants bring out the best robe and put on him put a ring on his finger and shoes on his feet bring the fattest calf, kill it and let us eat, and be merry. My son was dead and is alive again he was lost and is found began to be merry. His elder son came from field: heard music and dancing asked servant what was going on? Told your brother came back so your father killed fattest calf because he received him safe. But he was angry so didn’t go in. His father came out and talked to him, answered his father, many years I served you did not any time break your commands but you never gave me a kid to make merry with my friends. Your son comes after wasting his wealth with harlots and you kill a fatted calf. He said to his older son you are always here with me all I have is yours. Its good to make merry and be glad for your brother was dead and is now alive he was lost but now is found. This prodigal son represents all sinners who abandon God for worldly pleasure. Backsliders find out in hard way vanity hurts. Mankind cannot thrive without God’s in Jesus Name. No matter how far gone into sin hitting abrock bottom God loves you and welcome you back just as you are. Jesus welcomes all who seek His help so its never too late to call on God to save, heal and deliver you. Jesus came to save us while we were sinners Christ died for us. Come with warts and all for the Holy Spirit to heal your heart. Transform and renew your mind as the new creation in Christ, old things pass away all things become new. Change the way you act, behave, think, ask God to forgive your sin and forgive yourself. So forgive friends, family in Jesus Name.

Happiness is enjoyed as you make others happy daily so people remember you for how good you make them feel. One of the greatest desires of all mankind is need to be always happy. Happiness is accompanied by smiling to help relieve stress and boost mood to release endorphins. Happiness is thus inner joy inside the heart accompanied by emotional feelings or smile.

WHAT IS REAL LOVE TO YOU

A group of adults asked question, what is love? GOD IS LOVE so Love God First, love yourself next, love neighbours and others as yourself. Jesus answered same question on love in Matthew 22:36-40. Most important commandment in whole Bible is to Love God with all your heart, your whole soul, whole mind, your whole strength and to love your neighbour as yourself. This love command of God is confirmed in Mark 12:28-32 by Jesus’ answer to, of all commandments which is the most important one? Answer to young man Love God and love your neighbours. On love, Hear Oh Israel and all nations grafted in, LOVE GOD for God is Love. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 says, Love is patient, love is kind, does not envy, does not boast, is not proud, does not dishonour others, is not self-seeking, not arrogant or rude. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. If one speaks in tongues of men or angels but does not love, one is resounding gong or clanging cymbal. If one has gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries, all knowledge, and faith to move all mountains but it does not have love as God’s True Love its not in you. This important and relevant question of our love discussions also includes many clarifications. As it is soon clear various issues of man’s concepts of love exists. With many secular self-help books and psychological definitions love here it is simplified into the 4 essential categories following original Greek understanding of love. In broader context love extends to includes Godly perspective definition of love.  Love is special inner emotion to understand if one is truly fully prepared to work at it for good success. Although most people think that love revolves around the heart, it actually occurs in the brain. Thought processes activates love in good ways or in lustful concepts. Artists, poets, painters epitomize heart as love symbol but it’s the brain that generates love chemical signals to make people understand love. Different forms and styles exists of expressing love as described by Ancient Greeks are 4 terms being agape, phileo-philia-philos, storge, eros. To symbolize these 4 let us look at the 4 loves in details as follows.

Agape – Godly Love

Agape real love is rooted and grounded in God as Source of Love through Christ dwelling in your hearts by faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, can comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God in Ephesians 3:17-19. To attain agape love one has to be connected to God through Christ the Vine and believer as the branch. Love from God flows through Christ to enable, equip, to achieve agape love. It is impossible to achieve agape love by mankind’s own personal efforts without God in the heart at the centre of life. Each created person by God has God’s Spirit of Love Naturally inborn in mankind. The capacity to share agape love is enhanced by obedience to God’s word to love God, yourself and neighbour as yourself. Neighbour includes all people, family, loved ones and enemies. Jesus said agape love must be extended to love for enemies. Agape love is deepened by praying together, reading and studying the Bible as a family unit. God gave Christ, the first unconditional love sees beyond outer surface to accept recipient just as they for whom they are, regardless of flaws, shortcomings or faults. It’s the type of love everyone strives to have for fellow human beings. Although you may not like someone yet still you decide to love them just as a human being. Agape love is sacrifice giving so expects nothing in return. Agape is really life love in action demonstrating  good deeds in behaviour towards others. An agape Godly Love is committed, inbuilt, so not influenced by the circumstances of life or by others or changed by people’s response.

Phileo-Philia-Philos-Platonic Love

These phileo- philia- philos love refers to affectionate, warm, tender platonic love. It makes you desire friendship with someone. Philos love activates and livens demonstration of agape love. Philos is selective love because one feels naturally more drawn towards certain people than others. So cannot always explain why you may not have a phileo love for the same people. Therefore you feel more connected to someone better than others. It is a committed and chosen love than can last throughout life based on location, duration, situation, proximity or distance if nurtured long-term. Philos can be affected by background history, understanding of emotions, mutual respect, life experiences, may be gender related or have shared goals. One seems to identify better with philos because of appealing nature or common interests. Qualities of love is seen in actions and behaviour but with clear boundaries. Friendship lines are not blurred by friends with benefits.

Storge- Family Love

Family love of compassion, caring, nurturing, friendship that parents naturally feel for their children. Storge is a unique often blood affection that related members of the family have for each other. This is enhanced by mutual family traditions, living together. Eating together, sharing chores and generational activities create healthy interaction than lasts for years. Although blood related, storge also includes adopted family members. Storge again is long – term friendships closer than a brother. Or through years of schooling together and living in a neighbourhood so feel for each other. In some cases, storge friendship love may ultimately become part of a blood related family. Others develop into romantic relationship but the couple were at first best friends. Storge love is unconditional, accepts flaws, faults ability to forgive. Knowing each other first before passion helps commit with better understanding of family sacrifices so feels secure, comfortable and safe.Eros- Romantic Love

Eros is the most popular concept of love known by people because it is passionate, intense romantic love. Erotic love triggers indulgent high feelings in new relationship to declare love. It is intimate, emotional, sexual love, originally exclusively intended by God within marriage. God said it is not good to be alone so God gave Adam a wife and companion to help meet each other’s needs. Although romantic love is important in the beginning of a new relationship, it is not the only factor to depend on for life in a relationship. Eros sexual, self- serving, tunnel vision, love alone is not enough to fulfil other real demands of matured nitty-gritty love long – term. This may not last unless it moves a notch higher. It is usually based on personal self- interest gratification so focuses more on self instead of the other person. So if erotic love is the only foundation of the relationship, then it fizzles out when the honeymoon is over. It is important to feel good in relationship to love partner steadfastly.  This is a broad general understanding and description of love which promotes good, healthy and progressive relationship. In any relationship, you should have all these four loves working together to enable it survive for a longer time. In some cases a relationship may be long-lasting if partners share similar views on love. Opposites do attract too, so compassion, understanding, care, emotional support, active listening, empathy, two-way relationship.

A BEAUTIFUL LIFE OF BIRDS

love_birds_green_parrotJesus said in Matthew 6:26, “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store food in barns yet your heavenly Father feeds them. So are you not much more valuable than birds? 27 Which of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? 28 “Why do you worry about clothes? See lilies of field growing, they do not labour or spin. 29 I tell you even Solomon in his splendour is not dressed like one of these. 30 If God clothes birds, grass of fields here today and tomorrow is thrown in the fire, will God not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 Don’t worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For pagans run after these things and your heavenly Father knows your needs. 33 Seek first God’s Kingdom and HIS righteousness so all things will be given to you. 34 Do not worry about tomorrow, tomorrow will worry about itself each day has its own troubles. The birds they are happy and content.IMG-20200319-WA0017Jesus in Matthew 6:26 and Luke 12:26-40 says God provides for birds tiny little things so why do you worry about food or other matters? 27 Consider the lilies, how they grow they neither toil or spin but I tell you not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. 28 “But if God clothes grass in the field alive today and tomorrow thrown into the fire, how much more will HE clothe you? You men of little faith says Christ. Believers not to be overburdened worry or perplexed by things of the world that shall pass away. Jehovah Jireh the Great Provider already supplies more than enough super abundance for all the billions of people to live a meaningful, fulfilled, content life. So must refrain from constant relentless worry about food or clothes. The food and clothes adverts feed minds to dwell on brands. Negative impact information affects people to worry about their superficial physical appearance more than think about Godly realities in life.dsc_0930-lorikeet-euc-flwrThe verse says stop constant pressure to conform to dress in clothes to fit current trends that keep people in fear, bondage of physical look superficial vanity body. The believer must not drift along in life without putting thoughts into decisions about God’s image in Christ. Believers to dress in moderation within budget. The best means to do this is depend on God forever. Do not put any confidence and feelings in clothes or food to make  you special. Give GLORY to God for creating people providing abundant resources to clothe them. Outward appearance is not to cause believers to resort to spending money on the things don’t last eternally. The birds Jesus talked about to believers know God takes care of believers so do not blame God for lack. Poverty is made by man because God richly provides for all including deprived. Wisdom of God is required by the true disciple believers of Jesus Christ to thrive in life._MG_7564Stop constant pressure to conform. God feeds the birds designed to live without sewing or reaping harvest. Believers are to stop being anxious, distressed about food or clothes for the body. Inner and out – ward beauty can be enhanced by clothes. But not to focus on flamboyant looks more than inner beauty substance of maturity and experience. A thorough look at the processes of clothes making from cotton, silk, plant, other materials reveals amazing colours. It is beautiful basic fabrics from start to finish woven into trendy glamorous garments worth millions. No religious leaders adorned in expensive clothes are to mock people among them who have no clothes. They must help by considering plight of poor. Some leaders parody Gospel message of God mocking or ridiculing Jesus Christ. Jesus day rulers deliberately undermine the people who followed Jesus, sabotage the believers living by Biblical principle commands of God. God’s majesty is seen in all HIS creation and in all the birds.maxresdefaultGod feeds these birds, no need to stress under pressure by a vanity glamourous life that not solve real life problem. The world has changed from God’s original plans and purpose to satisfy only greedy few who control helms of affairs. God is a Good Guy to trust to help you in life so not just selfishness only for themselves. Christ says don’t look to an over-hyped unrealistic lifestyle imposed by puppet masters. Its impossible to live up to such expectations worrying distraction affect health but does not improve quality of life. Dandelions, lilies, tulips, plants or flowers in the fields grow in beautiful colours have wonderful shapes. Their delightful fragrances, scents and beauty are without care or labour of their own. The LORD God Almighty gives daily life sustenance by careful managements of gardeners nurturing their nourishment.Look-at-the-birds-of-the-air-they-do-not-sow-or-reap-or-store-away-in-barns-and-yet-your-heavenly-Father-feeds-them.1Jesus responds to Pharisees, Sadducees putting themselves above others, ensure privileges enjoyed by their class, status, by selfish greed without a consideration for poor. Jesus says don’t condone greed austerity measures blackmailing others to make themselves feel better for their expenses abuse of others. Influencers in subtle covert actions do research review to read minds of people. Those deemed threats are harassed, monitored, phones bugged, moles put in place for a smear campaigns to underrate them. Progress into face to face undercover interviews to twist words to paint them in a bad light. So blackmail continues to outright blatant snares tried in vain by the Grace of God, trying to ruin lives of those who stand on the WORD of God. Financially  sabotage by strategy set up to frustrate, deprive, exclude from a sound business acumen work eliminates honest peoplelilies-of-the-fieldJesus respondsThey sanction bank accounts but freely indulge in lavish luxury as they please and hide their own luxuries and wealth. Jesus says remove a log from own eyes before trying to take the splinters from other’s eyes. Book of Amos in Bible ‘fat cows of Bashan’ make laws to subdue others to silence them do not use personal wealth for pleasure or leisure gain. Constantly project their fear on helpless vulnerable members of society suffering. Deprives people for their greed. Jesus to believers on future says do not worry about food, clothes or try to keep up with the Jones.American-robin-on-nest-incubating-eggs This stops financial embarrassment trap deliberately set up to ruin people to use against them. Their cunning pressure to humiliate or limit abundant prosperity God freely gives to all is available. Look for best foods to eat but does define or constitute real life of people. King David reminds believers spiritual battle is the LORD’S. God protects as perfect defence from vanity of enemy’s weapon control. Confidence in God is a security against harassment instigated to worry as snare set up to sabotage life. Remember Jesus overcame the world in victory to causes believer triumph always in Jesus Name. God deals with people destroying earth who deprive others of God’s resources in Revelation 19:15-21. In 15 Jesus has in His mouth a sharp sword to strike down nations. He will rule with iron scepter to tread the winepress by fury of wrath of God Almighty.IMG-20200319-WA001716 On Jesus’ robe and on His thigh He has His Name written as KING of Kings and LORD of Lords 17 I saw an angel standing in the sun who cried in a loud voice to all BIRDS flying in midair, “Come gather together for great supper of God. 18 so you may eat flesh of kings, captains, generals, noble mighty men, horses and riders, flesh of people, free, slave, great or small.” 19 Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and armies gathered together to wage war against rider on the horse and His army. 20 The beast captured with false prophets who performed signs deluding those who received mark of the beast and worship its image. They are thrown into fiery lake of burning sulfur. 21 The rest were killed with the sword coming out of mouth of the rider on the horse and all BIRDS and animals from the sea to feast on their flesh piled high to the height of a horse their blood streaming on streets. Genesis 15:11 says during God’s Covenant with Abraham birds of prey tried to eat meat sacrifice but Abraham drove those BIRDS away.  God warned Abraham for 400 years his descendants will be in slavery for their disobedience to God. People destroying earth are destroyed by God Almighty so don’t worry leave them in hands of God for social justice change in world. Jesus will RULE FOREVER so make sure you belong to GOD ALMIGHTY YAHWEH’S KINGDOM COMING SOON TO EARTH.
