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 & BUSINESS

Current rates of depression, anxiety and other mental disorders have been on the rise. Many organisations that provided social care are closed down by profit only mindset decisions. Some powerful mega-corporations stigmatize those with mental health issues in a bid demonize them to avoid duty of care or responsibility towards employees. Stress from chronic fatigue, zero-hour contracts, endemic pressures on pilots facing brutally competitive industry place under public spotlight for proper and responsible debate. Global society imposes perfectionist culture so employees with mental health issues are considered a risk to a company. In a profit driven target corporation, anyone slowing down the cogwheels of profit is seen as disrupting robust, quick, smooth flow so inefficient and time-wasting. Mega companies are mostly about profit therefore any staff not performing to standard is fired. As a result, most people do not feel safe or comfortable to reveal to employers mental health, disabilities or learning difficulties. In theory, documentation and paper work confirm a friendly, supportive and nurturing environment conducive to meet needs of such demands. Welfare teams are created to help discuss any pending issues that can affect work. However, most companies see business as separate from personal human needs of staff. So would tell them is private domestic matters that cannot be brought into the work place. As it is often, a business is not social welfare department. So, those aware conceal mental health, depression and medications taken because they are not seen as competent. Although required to seek medical help from doctors, who provide duty of care, treatment, advice to client to be off duty to rest and recover, some may be seen as lazy people, who must ‘pull themselves’ together. Pressure and attitude of corporations displaces people by mechanised work, so find themselves distressed from unemployment. Some are flexible so retrain as technocrats to keep up with constant, unending changes to the modern work place. cockpitFor a person with mental issues, this causes more stress, as they do not function fast enough as other people. Their congenital brain constitution is slower than normal rate of performance so need slower duties. However, they is hardly slow performing jobs available. Customers are on the move and wants things done yesterday. So any long queues formed by a particular staff member will soon receive complaints about delay and waste of their time for lack of excellent service. It is not wise or ideal to label a mental health staff to seek redress to warn customers in advance. For this will backfire with taunting, teasing and lack of understanding of mental health issues. So may be kept behind the scenes to work slower to the annoyance of others who call them names. This in effects causes distress and despair so goes on anxiety medications to deal with stress and depression. Is it possible sheer frustration, fear of discrimination and dismissal ”because he understood because of his health problems, his big dream of a job at Lufthansa, as captain and long-haul pilot was practically impossible”, she told Bild. So wanted was to do something that will change the whole system and everyone will know name and remember. As his medical documents suggest existing illness and appropriate medical treatment including torn up sick notes one covering the day of the crash. He ”hid his illness from his employer and his colleagues.” As he did not directly reveal to employers concerns, his employers are not blamed because they were compassionate enough to allow him time off to later pass. Reiner Kemmler, a psychologist who specialises in training pilots, noted people “know depression can compromise their airworthiness so they can hide it.” “If someone dissimulates, they do not want other people to notice, it’s very, very difficult,” Kemmler told Deutschlandfunk public radio. As stated, it is no excuse on short-haul tragedy to punish innocent victims by appalling decision. Yet it is still important to ensure strategies in place so not to humiliate people who may feel insecure so less important in any category of work. Untold happenings in workplaces are hard to swallow especially by those on the receiving end. So to set up a system told reveal and be punished for being honest and truthful is not helpful. Apparently acting deliberately caused shock and anger. The German President Joachim Gauck, a Protestant pastor, attended a memorial service in the town Friday. In Montabaur, the Mayor Edmund Schaaf urged reporters camped out in community to show restraint towards Lubitz’s parents, a banker and church organist who live on a leafy, normally quiet street.”Regardless of whether the accusations against the co-pilot are true, there is sympathise with his family so media asked to be considerate.” Their pain is worse by the obvious circumstances. The question is, does life have value only with regard to status, career, as certain people feel more human. So those unable to achieve or accomplish perceived standard not seen as worthy in society. Is there really acceptance genuine acceptance of those feeling less competent feels like a failure not to be eliminated by set procedures. If one is true to oneself, is there alternative ways of using skills, abilities and talents in a similar setting as a trainer, coach, consultant? By focussing on strengths and best interests of others to feel useful.  With constantly changing high maintenance, dynamic ongoing designs in business environments, it is necessary not to design a ‘one – size fits all’ approach as a form of training. People have varied learning styles, individual differences, so pressure must not be put to compare without understanding underlying problems. Most companies, quite frankly do not want to know. This causes more pain without support, attention and focus needed to help with compassion, to prevent such anger revenge decisions. Domino effect is compounded by drowsiness and side- effects from medication. In effect, mental illness is not properly recognised as illness worth helping. Companies see mentally ill looking normal, sounding sane so force them to work though not mentally sound. Most common test for wellness and fitness to work is, anyone who can walk, talk, eat, answer phone unaided is fit to work. Yet psychotic episodes of highs and lows are unpredictable and beyond control of the client. Pressure to gain profit at all cost, from all aspects of life, in all areas, irrespective of the doctor’s confirmed opinion, means companies over-rule informed decisions of doctors that can help people get better. It seems such companies prefer to kill people softly to grind them to a halt for profit.

Another issue is fear of socializing with mentally ill in case pressure of work triggers attack. Companies are not prepared to nanny adults in work environment. Furthermore, a few bankers control large chunks of global economy, so not prepared to invest in charities not for profit. Most of the respite centres in the community and specialist mental health units are all closed down in the name of ‘care in the community.’ Relatives who sacrifice time with compassion to care for mentally ill are often punished for not going out to work full-time. As if caring for a mentally ill person is not full-time work enough. Humanitarian policies that care about taking good care of mentally is mocked as ‘charity,’ socialist, communist so capitalist privatisation has no use for mentally ill in society. Many database list 37 million companies to show appalling Scrooge penny-pinching towards working classes who cannot afford private care. Most companies have glamorous notices displayed on how caring they are, but the reality threat is different. Often, mentally ill fend for themselves or neglect state of mental health. Social support plays positive role in helping people through self – help associations on-line interacting with similar minded people. To mediate between global mega-corporations, to take mental health seriously, to provide duty of care is dealing uncharted battlefield of David versus Goliath. Preferred treatment is medications which earns billions of dollars for pharmaceutical companies than promoting genuine health of such people. Consistent reviews show mentally ill deteriorate rather than recover to become fully functioning in society. Several factors constrain mega-deal activity healthcare, stiff competition to outdo each other. Pharmaceutical companies see risk from mental behaviour so avoid better integration of physical and mental healthcare treatment. Global Research, of March 04, 2014 shows Wal-Mart successfully and legally avoids paying for healthcare insurance and other benefits for most low ranking staff. Sometimes mega-corporations are occasionally successfully sued in court. Global mega-trends include rapid increasing global technological advances costing billions of dollars than pay humans to feed and provide for families. Some companies prefer machines, which do not eat, shop, buy products, pay bills as beneficiaries of their wealth and prosperity. In doing so deprive millions from earning incomes to live basic lifestyle necessities they never have to live. With golden spoons in their mouths they can can afford the best medical care luxury and privilege. Lack of understanding causes fear to label mentally ill to turn back on helping them. Take for example, it costs a couple of thousands of dollars to set up a proper transparent health care for staff who disclose mental illness. This will help save mega – companies and people affected in society from extremely rare cases of recent German wings. The overall cost of loss of planes, loss of earnings, compensations for victims, cost of recovery of planes and bodies is huge. DNA identification process, replacement of air planes adds up counting cost into 100 millions of dollars. Compared to important priceless lives lost that no amount of money, silver or gold can compensate. Preventive policy, trust, transparency, ensures staff are treated with due respect and dignity. Above all, members of corporations must understand how to deal with mental health in the workplace without bias. Educating on Global Mental Health must be appropriately dealt with in work places, banks and pharmaceutical companies on important value of precious, priceless lives above bank balance. Pharmaceutical companies and mental healthcare must liaise to meet mega-marketing challenge of well-being of people above profit. Company CEO must undertake compulsory undercover boss programme to discover stress in work environment often most are unaware of. There is misconception mechanised work is easy so staff watching equipment and gadget to function efficiently is not hard work. Current EU laws insist pilots fly inhumane hours to put more stress on pilots and lives at risk. Companies receiving insurance payments after accidents may not fully understand the emotional trauma that really affects families for life. Cost cutting measures amass scandalous profits so sears conscience to care less. Mentally ill staff, depressed person, passengers are great value to God the Maker. Natural process takes due course if intricately designed engines cannot be guaranteed or capable of detecting if pilot in cockpit triggers a dangerous manoeuvre before it is too late. Above all, “they don’t have expertise to recover a plane about to crash.” Superman does not intervene in real life situations to stop tragedy caused by human error, mechanical failure, suicide or terrorism. So conscious effort must be made to actively listen to help to reason ‘logically’ and realistically to support those who feel not heard by mega corporations who may put profit before people. Australian and International Pilots Association president Nathan Safe says, airlines are getting better about dealing with pilot mental health issues. Some can adapt as free lance pilots like John Trevolta to work when able to do so. Support networks, aviation contact can program alternative flexible routes if available to ensure staff redeployed. So feel encouraged to share innermost thoughts, feelings without fear of reprisals. Where there is a will is always a way for win win situation for all involved. Extreme mental illness like Gadarene demoniac is cured by Power of God Jesus demonstrated in supernatural miracle healing. Insane lunatic in Matthew 8.28-34 and Luke 26-39, delivered in Gadarene by Galilee in Israel.

JESUS COMFORTS MOURNERS

Jesus said, “Blessed are the people who mourn for they will be comforted by God the Comforter and Jesus with the Holy Spirit who help bereaved family mourn says Matthew 5:4. To be blessed in time of mourning sounds bizarre but the statement to be “blessed” means the person enters eternal rest after the most painful time in agony. Death is the relief from painful hurts of suffering affecting mourners who don’t feel blessed at all. One doesn’t feel blessed watching loved ones endure a traumatic pain and onset of demise. But Jesus understands hurts, and loss, agony, pain, grief, exceeding sorrow so He comforts those who grieve and mourn. Weeping may endure for a season but joy comes in the morning so mourn with hope of resurrection. Those who mourn in Christ, sow in tears, shall reap in joy in heaven. Jesus knows pain of mourning Himself while on earth. He endured torture, betrayal as the Man of Sorrows who wept many times During His most traumatic intense moments of pain. Jesus communed with Father God in pain in the Garden of Gethsemane. Jesus feel sad and disappointed to bear ungrateful world’s sin on His Shoulders. But when real hour came Jesus willingly showed true colours enduring adversity. Jesus went the extra mile to forgive and heal soldier’s ear cut off by Peter. Jesus petitioned God who sent an angel from heaven to comfort Jesus. Jesus sweats drops of His blood falling down on the ground. Jesus did not try to avoid going on cross but overwhelmed by agonising pain. Mocked by chief priests, captains, elders and people yet He did good in His Life and ministry. Jesus wept because of the manner in which He was treated without dignity, honour or respect. They lacked understanding and misconceived Jesus’ ministry so did not reconnect to God, appreciate or value Jesus. So Jesus wept in anguish as Peter, James, John fell asleep so did not pray with Jesus as Jesus expected them to do. Jesus was shocked they did not support Him for an hour of His last intimate moments of His life on earth before His crucifixion. Jesus prayed intensely to God the Father in Gethsemane for strength. Sadness, loss, sorrow, unbearable pain felt by Mary Magdalene in the Middle, and Jesus’ Mother on left, plus disciples grieve at Jesus’ trial during crucifixion. Jesus wept and sweats blood in anguish for those gaining the world but losing their souls. And during His agony Jesus asked for God’s Help. Jesus is Perfect yet under immense intense pressure of the weight of the sins of mankind. His most trusted inner-circles disciples 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 who surrounded him. Jesus wept for them for lack of spiritual vision, lack of Godly knowledge. This caused them to misdirect hatred towards Jesus. Jesus counted on God’s Holy Spirit to comfort to see Him through grief and mourning. Jesus comforts others because He went through hurts, sorrow, pain, rejection, and knows abandonment, hatred, grief so He understands all mourning. Jesus’ Crucifixion seen in a movie, “Passion of Christ” depict stressful, mournful events of storms of life. These mourners set the great example to help mourn with hope. Judas Iscariot betrayed Him as religious leader elders, captains, Roman soldiers didn’t know or fully understand great accomplishment salvation redemption they desperately need themselves. Jesus did not satisfy their material desires so infuriated all those seeking deliverance from Roman imposters but its essential to depend on God. It is normal to sob to cry as a man because God, Jesus, Joseph, king David cried. In Luke 22:7-38, Jesus ate Passover Meal with disciples in the upper room then Jesus went to garden of Gethsemane to pray as He waited for His hour to come. Jesus Calls Upon God for Strength as mortal man felt crushed by pain of sorrow sweat blood. Betrayed by Judas, Jesus was taken to many trials before the chief priests, Pontius Pilate, Herod in Luke 22:54-23:25.Jesus was in agony but yet passionate to obey God unto death. When the crowd shouted, Crucify Jesus, Christ revealed His passion for people suffering in sin, Willingly went through on the cross on our behalf. In critical moments of grief and sorrow, God sent angel to reassure and to comfort Jesus. Jesus understood God’s grief and sorrow yet committed to redeem mankind as prophesied. Peter, James, John slept in His time of need of adversity Jesus prayed. So Passion Week means believers passionate in worship of Jesus proclaim Gospel to Honour God. In Romans 8:38-39, Bible says, “For 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 and afflicted but not valued, esteemed or appreciated. Jesus was wounded for our transgressions and bruised for all our iniquities. The punishment, chastisement of our peace was upon Jesus and by His Stripes we are healed in Jesus Name in Isaiah 53:4-5. Jesus was scourged at the hands of the Roman soldiers. Then forced to carry the Cross through the streets of Jerusalem known as Dolorosa way of sorrows. Jesus was then crucified at Golgotha on day before Sabbath. Jesus the Sacrificial Lamb of God laid down His life for all of mankind. Navigating through devastation of loss, mourning cannot be fully comprehended. Jesus bore our griefs, carried our sorrows, suffered for us. Believers too suffer for sharing Gospel Message of resurrection.Jesus suffered an unfathomable shame, and disgrace and a prolonged agonizing tortures to prove His love for us all. Be encouraged in Christ Jesus to maximise your strength in God to repair damaged feelings of discomfort experiences. Deal seriously with the painful emotions of grief by expressing them verbally. This helps to get a devastation constraint out of your system to avoid depression. As pressure mounts do survive no matter what, for Jesus has conquered death as God’s Gift of eternal life. Mourning is one of the greatest times of challenges of faith of true believers by faith stand.Jesus_CrossChrist triumphed over death to give us eternal life so feel confident have a safe with assurance of reunion of loved ones in heaven. Think of how loved ones feel about your pain dwell on who God is and God’s love. God has not given you a spirit of fear but love and a sound mind. Reliving painful memory experiences is sad but no matter how hard try to ease pain of loss of loved ones by reflections. Value precious memories, laugh in the midst of tears to help recovery, healing process. This does not mean loved ones have no influence on thoughts, feelings or behaviours. Its possible to lean on God’s counsel by wisdom in comforting you and accept help. Soldiers compelled passer-by Simon of Cyrene, a black man from Libya country, father of Alexander and Rufus to help carry Jesus’ Cross. Direct all questions towards God but do not accuse or blame God for not being with you to allow the tragedy. Keep a journal if appropriate and continue to read Bible for personal grounding in Christ. Remember loved ones will not want to see your life ruined by their passing. God Still Loves you even if one said wrong things in rage or anger. God forgives, so says, as far as the East is far from the West so God removes sin from you so does not remember sin any more neither should you. Consider the grief, sorrow, pain, torment felt by God, Mary, mother, relatives seeing Jesus in pain.God sent Jesus to pay for all your sins at Calvary on Golgotha in Israel. Some feel physically weak, present and absent at the same time, feel scared, want comfort during difficult times. Feel lost, confused, angry, guilty for not having closure during time of loss of loved one, loss of friend, a companion, a confidant, feel overwhelmed fear, chaotic life in an emotional state of upheaval in mind. Jesus went through pain, grief, torment so mankind is saved and loved forever.Jesus gave His back to those who struck Him, His cheeks to those who plucked out His beard. Yet did not hide face from shame and spitting in Isaiah 50:6. The reality of overwhelming loss feels like end of one’s world. Accompanied by the feelings of isolation alone are in shock, struggling inside, deeply traumatized, lost joy, lack of sleep, not eat properly, endure upheaval due to loss and changes of lifestyle circumstances. To recover from traumatic experience requires God’s Divine Encounter to lift up from lowest dark moments. Though in agony, pain on Cross, Christ is Lord so reaches out to save robber on cross.God’s Decisive Position as Sovereign Lord does not change. Despite adversity Jesus sets good example to sustain life of mother plus survivors left behind despite troubles. God’s Unique Sufficient Way, Reflects Mercy, Compassion Reconnecting deeper so remain faithful during lamentation. The Holy Spirit as Comforter provides auto-pilot strength to nourish soul to cope. Self-pity misery causes low immune system trauma with lack of proper self-care due to grief, pain so hold onto God. Remember loved ones rejoicing in heaven not suffering on earth.So is dealt with by countless people counteracted by the Grace of God. Feeling vulnerable, helpless, hopeless in pain yet God takes over so Christ Jesus bears up. Mourning reminds mankind of internal emotional and mental battle powers beyond human control. Such strips life in untamed territory in the valley of the shadow of death. Mourning is a very dark place with down cast feelings. But God lifts up to Glorify His Holy Mighty Name. Strength Comes from God to Provide Peace in the heart of pain known by those who experience loss of loved ones. When tears become food, love felt in this life does not need to be cut off in mourning.Trust in God helps overcome the sad depths of feelings of sorrow, despair, low mood to remain dignified. Understanding meaning of resurrection of Jesus gives confidence in ups and downs as follower of God. Jesus endured inhospitable liquid sorrow moments in life. Jesus suffered for us so believers willingly suffer in proclaiming message of His death and resurrection. Change negative perspective to learn to trust God again. This is important as living sermons watched for testimony. God’s defence sustains life in spite of adversity, so continue to make Christ first love as Mary the Mother of Jesus comforts Jesus in Sorrow. Jesus is the Only One Anchor of Hope Who Gives eternal life to reconnect us to God to see all our loved ones once again. Within sad disappointment is the foundational truth life is nothing without Christ. Despite adversity pray, God even if you slay me yet will I trust and praise you more in Job 13:15, Maintain Godly way before God, even if life is tragically destroyed by affliction, still hope in God. The best one can do is to be increasingly aware to let go to allow God’s Guidance. God recreate ultimate motivation desire to will to live by the example of Jesus in agony on the cross Who rose to the occasion to Obey God in suffering. God enriches faith drowned by grief and sorrow. God’s  life-giving source rescues from reality of conflicting thoughts and actions. Seek support and help and be true to yourself. Loved ones feel guilt and helplessness so be grounded in faith in God to lean on Christ. Jesus was buried and remained in the tomb until Sunday. Wholeness comes from you all investing in taking time to draw closer to God even in the midst of adversity. Do cry but to listen with full attention in contemplating heaven the final port of call, incarnation. God shines light in dark moments of emotional battlefield turmoil. Through tears, prayer, silence, worship, music, reflection photos, pictures, honour memory of loved ones.
Do not lose faith for you are never alone. As a believer God has direct connection daily no matter how much human love is enjoyed in abundance. When life becomes difficult or bereaved, sorrow can cause pain to blame God inadvertently to drift and wander away from God’s Presence. THIS IS THE TIME GOD’S PROTECTION IS NEEDED MOST. Physical affection, intimacy, interaction, hugs, touch of another is cut off by loss or bereavement but God is with you. Look beyond to Rest in God’s Deep and incomprehensible Love to give meaning to life. During the best or worst of times, the Bible encourages believers to celebrate God even in the darkest moments of life. God is in the mountain top good times when life is at its best. God is also in valley when things suddenly unexpectedly change. such times place intense increasing demands on time, energy levels, lifestyle and realities of dealing with traumatic circumstances. High levels of self -criticism and lack of self confidence frightens to cause fear and uncertainty of the future. So disrupts God’s design of intimacy when human interaction is needed most. The challenge is let God be Strong Tower Fortress of Hope in chaos of life’s brutal events. As the crowd of condolence and sympathisers dissipate, Christ’s Love fills the void in reality.
Do not feel lost without affirmation of emotional love but connect with one another in love. The truth is Only God is capable of satisfying innermost desires. Nobody, including loved ones is able to fill void in heart in Way God Can so Holy Spirit Comforts in Christ Jesus. Godly Hope does not disappoint because the Love of God is poured out in our hearts by Holy Spirit in Romans 5:5. The Purest Sacrificial Love is Given by Christ for Greater Love has no man than Christ Who laid down His Life as a Ransom for many to save from sin in John 15:13. Appreciate Love of God in Christ with Gratitude. 3 days after Sabbath, Jesus gloriously resurrected. Our mother helped us through our father’s death to draw closer to God, right in the deepest darkest moments of our lives. Mother directed us to God through the Blood of Jesus for a deeper encounter of God’s Comfort. Ironically, our Trust in God Increased to a Whole New Level. We experienced a New Deeper Dimension of God’s Goodness, Compassion and Love never known or experienced before mourning. Although we miss loved ones asleep in the Lord, still “Blessed be the God of Comfort and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender love who reigns forever. The valley of shadow of death has Jesus Lily of the valley present each moment. Confidence in God empowers to recognise frustrations, constraints to desire long- term comfort and peace though feeling out of depth outside comfort zone.

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.

A PRODIGAL SON RETURNS

wp-1573836551850.jpgJesus told the story of prodigal son to teach parable of GOD’S LOVE FOR ALL people. A prodigal son in Luke15:11-32 is the main character showing God the forgiving father’s CHARACTER remains constant throughout the story. The son had everything needed in life to make his life happy and comfortable. He had golden spoon mansion luxury roof over his head living in rich super abundance beyond average person. He has servants catering to every need. He had butlers who ensured provided a distinguished service of highest standard so lacked nothing. He had the best of everything money could buy to ensure so indulged pristine lifestyle. Had the best gourmet chefs who prepared Michelin 5 star meals of several courses accompanied by the best desserts during each meal. He lived in the best post code gaitered area. Over all, the prodigal seem to have all that others dream of. Yet in spite of all the outward trimmings of pleasure he seemed to be in pursuit of happiness of another sort. Having seen the others having the liberty to enjoy good times, he felt his father subdued him. After all, he had reached age of adulthood that was appropriate to take on the world by himself. In his own mind figured out he can survive on his wealth behind him so there was nothing off limit to him. He can buy the best of anything he fancied and get the opportunity to meet the most beautiful girls in town. So he can finally enjoy himself in the best places and socialize. Above all, he does not have listen to his father’s lectures on life daily or be expected to keep a curfew. He would feel free without his father nagging him to be careful of life in general. The father had other plans and purposes for his life. To learn the family business to one day manage and preserve it for posterity. It took years for the father to set up business to grow over the years. Under the watchful eye of his father he was trained to run the company. However, he had other plans contrary to his father’s higher plans.His best friends were all out there having left home free to indulge themselves without restraint. He told his father to give him his portion of inheritance so he can go out into the world to enjoy himself. He explained his plans to his father who was so surprised.Asked his father to divide his share of wealth. His father was shocked and heartbroken because he knew exactly his son was immature and vulnerable. He led a protected sheltered life so never ventured out on his own before. He could hardly take care of himself, let alone cook or manage his resources and assets. His father gave him time to think his decisions carefully through to come back to him after a few days of deeper reflection. After some time, he told his father he had made up his mind. Although, with sadness at the risk of the naive son’s decision the father obliged. The father, said all he could in vain but the pressure of attraction of fellow young adults his age seemed more relevant than future preservation of family wealth and assets. His bests friends kept in touch secretly, advising him of all he was missing out there. He was physically present at home but emotionally absent. He had heard of all the adventures out there and the fun. He was convinced it was the right decision, so made his choice and said his goodbyes. His father asked him to keep in touch and reassured him he was welcome home any time he changed his mind. So off he went to meet his friends waiting for him and soon gained many more friends. He joined them and carried on with their lifestyle. They seem to freely indulge themselves without their parents controlling their lives any more. They can buy what they want, eat as they feel like and do exactly as they please. This carried on for many months as he spent his inheritance recklessly. His friends seemed to love him as long as he had money and sponsored them. It was not long before the expensive city took its took on him. He lost his money, home and so-called friends who abandoned him in his time of need. A rich man’s beloved son ends up doing odd jobs in a pig’s sty. The very place his upbringing did not destine to be. He was starving so ate the pig’s food.Then later, he came to his senses and so remembered his father’s love and the abundant provisions. He recalled the numerous left over meals thrown away in his father’s household. He made up his mind to go back to his beloved father who cared about him. His father never gave up on him so always prayed for his safety and well-being. It has been many months since he left and life was not the same without him. His mother cried everyday for him as she felt the impact he had on the family as a whole. His place at the dinning table is empty and his bedroom left intact of precious memories of growing up. Having given up hope of ever hearing from him or seeing him again an impossible miracle happened. Then in a far away distance he emerged, dishevelled and in tattered filthy clothes and unkempt not washing for days. His father run towards him to meet him and welcome him. His father hugged and embraced him lovingly and was delighted to see him alive. He had almost lost hope of his son restoring his life but found him again. The son asked his father to forgive him and treat him as a servant for raiding and wasting the family loom. The father welcomed him, put the best clothes on him, a signet ring on his finger and shoes on his feet . In addition the father, the organised a big party to eat and celebrate. For he was thought of dead due to his silence is alive again. All rejoiced and welcomed prodigal son home, but older was angry and furious for the good treatment given the vagabond son by his loving father. He heard the music and dancing found out its in honour of his lost and found brother. The elder son refused to partake in the party and condemned his brother for squandering his inheritance with the prostitutes. He confronted his father for letting his son back in and throwing him a party after wasting his share of the family’s inheritance.Worst of all he was really disappointed his father never acknowledged him to honour him as a loyal faithful son by throwing him a party. This is tragedy of so many people lost in the world today urged on to leave home to take on the world in their immaturity. There is the assumption that with plenty of money everything all things will automatically work together for good. Some young people pushed too hard too soon to leave home for greener pastures often end up without the ability to cope on their own. So there is a concept that once together in the company of good friends to support each other all will be well. So the family is disintegrated by the very system that should train young adults to value, respect and honour family. The family is to train them until the cortex is fully formed and they are matured enough to become capable of living on their own. The policy makers ensure their young ones have adequate provisions and resources to enable them to enjoy life from generation to generation. Some hire chaperones, security, body guards to ensure the safety and well-being of their own family members. Yet churn out without congruence to harm other’s young adults than do them good. Like the self-righteous elder brother they think  only they exclusively deserve the father’s silver and gold, diamonds wealth and assets more than others. By arrogance and impudence, device divisive policies deprive other people of young adults. So harass and intimidate young adults and force them to seek help from the wrong places. Refuse to acknowledge its snares set up to make life difficult for young adults. Father God Almighty, Jehovah Nissi is no respecter of person’s so does not approve them who persecute others but greedily indulge themselves.Seems to get away with wickedness in high places controlling his mind to sin. Jesus has conquered principalities and powers and made a show of them so God is watching and taking notice on behalf of deprived people. God is ever welcoming with open arms all those deprived and will comfort them like Lazarus in heaven and the rich man in hell. 11 Jesus said, a certain man had two sons 12 And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that belongs to me. And he divided unto them his living. 13 And not many days after younger son took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living 14 And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want 15 And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine 16 And he would filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him 17 And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father’s have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger 18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee 19 And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants. 20 And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.downloadfile-56.jpg21 And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son 22 But the father said to his servants, Bring out the best robe and put it on him and put ring on finger and shoes on his feet 23 And bring here the fattest calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry 24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. They began to be merry 25 Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew near the house, heard music and dancing 26 And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant 27 He said to him, your brother came back so your father killed the fattest calf because he received him safe and sound 28 And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and entreated him 29 And he answered his father, these many years I served you did not transgress any time your commandment and yet you never gave me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends 39 But as soon as your son came after devouring his wealth with harlots you killed the fatted calf 31 And he said to him son, you are ever with me and all that I have is yours 32 It is good to make merry and be glad: for your brother was dead and is now alive again he was lost but now is found. The prodigal son represents all sinners who abandoned God for worldly pleasures. And found out it’s all vanities and hurts because shows mankind cannot thrive without God’s cover in Jesus Name. No matter how far gone in sin to hit rock bottom God loves you and will welcome you just as you are. Jesus promised He will not cast out anyone who seeks Him for help and it’s never too late to call on God to save, heal and deliver you. Jesus came to save and while we were sinners Christ died for us. Come with warts and all for the Holy Spirit to heal your heart transform and rrnew your mind as new creation in Christ, old things pass away  and all things are made new. Forgive all people and forgive yourself.
