The Bible says during the Passover Jesus was crucified the “people from ALL THE NATIONS UNDER HEAVEN” in the city of Jerusalem shouted, ‘crucify Jesus and let His blood be on them and their children chose Barabbas. Acts 2, verse 9, says list of people from all places under heaven were in Jerusalem 3 times in a year. Were Parthians, Medes Elamites, residents of Mesopotamia. Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia Pamphylia, Egypt, parts of Libya of Cyrene, visitors from Rome, Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabians.”All people in Jerusalem Jewish converts as text says: dwelling in Jerusalem as Jews, devout men from every nation under heaven.” Jews by birth but in the crowd were Gentiles converted to Jewish faith. Devoted Jews or proselytes Gentile-Jews present yearly in crowd from all nations under heaven every year for 33 years in Jerusalem those particular days. 3 million Jewish converts in Jerusalem, going to temple, on appointed days for 3 major festivals in Hebrew calendar for people of Israel to be at the temples. So pilgrimage festivals included the Feast of Passover–“Pesach,” in the Hebrew language in early spring; the Feast of Weeks, “Shavuoth,” which occurs fifty days in late spring, “Pentecost,” means “fifty days after Jesus Resurrection.” The third major pilgrimage festival, Feast of Booths, Tabernacles, “Sukkoth,” in the fall. Kenyans were there too, Ethiopians, all other nations were represented by Jewish proselytes. Ethiopian eunuch or Christian believers from all nations travelled 3 times in the year required for the feasts for all men. Israel is a multicultural City of God from diverse nations of various people living during persecutions and feasts. Since time of Abraham, his entourage of converts from various nations lived in Canaan now Israel from there to and fro during famines or droughts or exiles by God. After restoration of Israel worship service continued in Temples attended by Jesus and disciples too. Multitudes from countless nations and people from all tongues, kindred and nations saved in heaven holding palm branches is beauty, diversity, humanity displayed all brilliance as all types of saved people meet in heaven in God’s presence. Need to read his Bible Jesus as said He could have called down armies of heaven to RESCUE Him but chose to LAY DOWN His life as ransom for many. Nobody killed Jesus, He offered His Life Ultimate Sacrifice to freely save people. The generation that crucified Jesus is not alive to take to court because Jesus has forgiven all by praying on the Cross, FATHER FORGIVE THEM FOR THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY WERE DOING. All people sinned so this led to need for redemption on Cross for Jesus to atone for sin. Therefore he bears part of the responsibility too as a sinner. The Bible says all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, there is none righteous without the blood of Jesus, no not one. Romans enforced crucifixion to ensure people do not follow Jesus for a political upheaval to takeover ruling the nation as God allowed due to rebellion. It was revealed to Jesus Judas Iscariot will betray Him so could cast demonic Spirit out of him. Jesus gave His Word, committed Himself in heaven came to earth saved mankind by voluntary will. The Seed of woman promised in Genesis crushed head of serpent Conquering death took all sting of death from satan. So enemies of Jesus thought they were killing Him to get rid of Him and His ministry shocked Jesus RESURRECTED after 3 days in grave. Jesus continued 40 more days after resurrection and to heaven alive forevermore. Jesus is the only Saviour alive so is Coming back again in Rapture then later in Second Coming to live on earth in Millennium. God HIMSELF will come down in New Jerusalem to Dwell on earth in Israel. Jesus is not dead but ALIVE IN HEAVEN. Jesus said His Kingdom is not of this world so had no intention of any political affiliation as they accused Him. The Chief Priests, Pharisees, Sadducees, and the crowd colluded and condoned to falsely accuse Jesus to try to kill Him to attempt to stop God’s Kingdom on the earth. When Jesus asked God in the garden of Gethsemane to remove cup of sorrows God sent angel to comfort Jesus knowing Jesus will resurrect from grave after death. Just as one cannot make an omelet without breaking eggs, Jesus had to die to prove His Own resurrection. It was necessary for Jesus to die so when Peter tried to stop Jesus from fulfilling His Mission rebuked him so said, ‘satan get behind me.’ Jesus is not victim but gave His Life Freelly to save mankind. God loved the world so gave HIS ONLY begotten Son to die to save all people on earth. Any issues with God’s salvation plan in Jesus go seek redress from God ALMIGHTY. Jews did not exclusively kill Jesus so all nations are responsible for they were represented in Jerusalem and took part in shouting crucify Him. Jesus makes it clear nobody took His Life but He gave His Life freely as a random for many to be saved from sin and death to gain eternal life. Without Jesus’ sacrifice there is no redemption of sin, Jesus died to set mankind free. Jesus is Alive today in heaven Coming in clouds in Rapture to rescue the elect into heaven into the presence of God. Jesus returns to earth for a Millennial Reign to Reign on earth with God eternally in Jerusalem Israel.
Jesus wept so it is alright and necessary to cry from pain, sorrow, grief, loss, abandonment bereavement, fear, tears of joy. Cry if you feel a need to do so privately or in public discreetly. It is a misconception crying is a sign of embarrassment and weakness so told not to cry so be tough and hide true feelings. Some conceal it all cost so internalize feelings and then implode through anger, hurts, undealt with vitriol or unresolved health issues. Crying is the response to overwhelming emotions so some people cry easily than others during times of intense sadness, profuse joy or overwhelming relief. It is natural part of creation in the “image of God” in Genesis 1:27 as Bible describes of having qualities and emotions of God. Jesus lived on earth among and felt full human emotions in Hebrews 4:15 so expressed feelings so wept on behalf of people in John 11:35, Luke 19:41. Jesus wept in Garden of Gethsemane during intense prayer night of arrest, crying God stop imminent death in Matthew 26:38-39 and Hebrews 5:7. In hard times King David cried and worshipped God.In days of Jesus’ life on earth He offered prayers, petitions and fervent cries and tears to God to save people from death. God heard Jesus because of His reverent submission so sent an angel to comfort Him in sorrow.” Since Jesus is God in the flesh, we can say that, when Jesus cried, God cried. God-Man Jesus experienced human life and as Spiritual God became man endured pain, human experience. Jesus identified with grief and sorrow, sheds actual real tears due emotions, pain, sorrow on behalf of all mankind that overwhelmed Him. Jesus has emotions so understands the need and importance of expressing feelings to be in control of His mind. Although Lord God, He chose to make Himself emotionally responsive to our choices.
• He sorrows against sin (Genesis 6:6; Psalm 78:40).
• He is sad if rejected (Isaiah 65:1–3; Jeremiah 8:19).
• He grieves idolatry and worldliness (Exodus 20:5;34:14; Joshua 24:19).
• He rejoices with love over His children (Zephaniah 3:17; Isaiah 62:5).
• He hates wickedness (Psalm 5:5;11:5; Proverbs 6:16).
• Has great compassion for His creation (Psalm 103:8; Joel 2:13).
Joseph cried because he understood what brothers were saying and had to turn aside so that they could not see his tears in Genesis 42:21-24. He knew real repentance involved feeling of regret over consequences of sin so proceeded to forgive them and told them what the devil meant for evil God turned to good to Bless all nations from famine. So did Jesus instead of vengeance sacrificed His Life as ransom for many. Scripture says He could ask LORD God of heaven’s armies (Zechariah 8:14; Isaiah 22:14) to rescue Him if He wanted to. Jesus cries tears to show us God’s sorrow in a very human way. Jesus came to help people understand God so told disciples “If you see me, you’ve seen Father God” (John 14:9). His experiences expressions help us open up to bring understanding incomprehensible grief. So experienced gruesome pain on the Cross to compare with human grief is hard to understand such spiritual realities. Jesus showed us the Father in physical comparison only way to grasp sacrifice and atonement for sin from Gospel Truth. So, the Bible records Jesus Wept for us to know He understands our feelings. He created us with ability to weep, allowed Himself to weep in the flesh as a good example. In the Bible there are numerous examples of many people who cried and wept on various occasions. This is so reassuring to confirm to people crying is a normal part of life so it is perfectly acceptable.
Crying is a relief from trapped emotion in moment of pain. God uses tears or crying feeling to helps overcome to prevail not to be anxious, stressed, fearful, overwhelmed says Isaiah 46:11. Jesus understands us so weeps with us in same way for same reasons to comfort us and intercede on our behalf before Father God. The world say men don’t cry, but in the Bible the strongest people cry out to God as Jesus God in the flesh did, David cried, Joseph and Peter wept. Cry on God’s shoulders in prayer and allow Him to comfort you as Psalm 34:17, The righteous cry out to God for help in times of distress and God hears. Jesus during the Last Supper told Peter he will deny and disown him 3 times. It written in Bible in Gospel of Matthew 26:33-35, Gospel of Mark 14:29-31, the Gospel of Luke 22:33-34 and the Gospel of John 13:36-38. The denial accounts in Gospels show repeated denial of Peter among people. Peter remembered what Jesus said during the Passover so went outside to weep bitterly. After Jesus resurrected from death on the third day, He visited disciples in the Upper room in John 21:15-17. So Jesus asked Peter 3 times if he loved Jesus and Peter said yes so repented and forgiven by Jesus who made Peter the rock on which to build His Church and Peter became the first head of the church. Peter cried for his sins so Jesus saw his genuine regret and forgave Peter. King Solomon said there is a time to cry and weep in life. It is essential to allow men to cry not to mask pain with alcohol or substance but to let raw pain out to wash out their grief, anger, bitterness among others. The Bible says weeping may endure for a season but not comes in the morning so blessed are those who weep now for the shall laugh in eternal life. In heaven there is no more pain, weeping, sorrow, grief, lamentations, crying because GOD HIMSELF comforts us and takes all pain away. Therefore in heaven is a glorious presence of refreshing joy forevermore.

One most heart wrenching experience we had is dealing with young people who feel sharing chronic life pain with others is embarrassing and belittling oneself. Therefore pain is concealed to prevent humiliation and being mocked as weak. When one is feeling well and able to contain pain within reasonable strength, it may be alright. The issue is the body can only take so much pain at a time. This means containing the pain is limited to circumstances and critical condition affecting ability to hold pain. Internal damage, if not detected early delays, inhibits and prevents treatment. Keeping up appearances, not revealing true pain affects treatment. Not wanting to come across as a ‘crying baby’ means some refuse to tell their doctors, nurses their true extent of pain. Any unusual unfamiliar pain surfacing in the body on and off needs equal attention as the ongoing obvious chronic pain. Please even if pain seems insignificant get checked to eliminate doubt or confirm need for treatment. Many fear being labeled a hypochondriac so they ignore pain until it festers beyond treatment. With health budget cuts it is essential to get to hospital early for a third-party service to be arranged to arrive on time. Health services are stretched beyond measure so few staff available to attend to urgent calls, shortage of beds, among lack of resources. Waiting hours, days for emergency kits delays treatments so client deteriorates in some cases. It is important to attend hospital early at first sign of symptoms because delay causes damage to organs due to lack of detection for appropriate treatment. If pain delayed alright in past, remember things changing so fast one cannot take life for granted anymore. The body’s immune system is impacted by pain and potential to heal faster. A fairly healthy body responds faster to treatment than body damaged and failing although best treatment is given. Attend appointments ask people to buy daysaver for you, pay for your medications or go with you as a friend to support you during treatment. Do not worry or feel embarrassed by an illness or condition because others don’t walk in your shoes so never understand your pain. Do not be stoic, macho about illness thinking the people will laugh at you. Your life is precious so take hold of life and preserve your body as much as you can. Chronic pain affects physical body, mind, emotions, drains, causes pressure, stress, makes person passive, tired, affects finances too. Many years of dealing with chronic pain impacts joy, lifestyle, family, interaction, friends and colleagues.

Punitive insurance is very detrimental to congenital health issues so some do not disclose in case it is used against them. Chronic pain affects all aspects of life studies, exams, college, university and employment. Constantly iinterrupts life events surrounding the whole family supporting them. It is quite sad in the midst of superabundance many people with chronic health issues cannot heat their home, eat hot food essential for good health. They hide their needs so not do not share personal details of life as they feel embarrassed. Many live in extreme poverty, punished by system in pain unable to attend GP’s appointments. DWP asking GP to ‘prove’ that a lifelong permanent illness needs medical certificate hurts, is exhausting to chase doctors appointment. People with congenital problems for life need support to manage their lives rather than prove really ill. The one size fits all approach assessment is inappropriate so refusing to pay them income support frustrates them and humiliates them. Unable to hold down jobs due to health problems feel sad because of lack of permanent department for treatment moved around wards. And takes hours, days, weeks for the critical emergency care resources to arrive, put person on hold. It is really unfortunate essential health is delayed, limited by resources so one cannot have a last minute.com attitude to health. It is necessary to eat, sleep, rest, educate the people around you about health matters so they do not think you are act weird. No one wants to focus entire life on painful lifestyle so prefer to keep it quiet disclosed to few trusted people. It’s difficult to seek help, and to intervene in such cases. However breaking confidentiality is necessary if at risk to themselves and need urgent help. They will thank you later when they get better so seek help on their behalf and get the right team to help the recovery process. Do not feel meddling in their private life or business because longterm chronic illness affects clarity, thinking and a decision making process. Dealing with chronic pain affects skills, employment, cumbersome student loan debts do not have any regular source of income. Please kindly help them with donations no matter how small some say they are alright, do not need help. In reality it is because they feel embarrassed or shy not wanting to burden others with their problem, prevents them asking for help. Such a behaviour is detrimental to their health, not eating properly, starving not living with heating, unable to afford bus fare for hospital appointments or to buy prescriptions ultimately affects chronic pain sufferer’s health and well-being to thrive. Worst of all punished by policies that do not consider genetic disorder or chronic pain as deserving support so no funds given so live without any income. No matter age of adult dependant cared for ensure you advocate on their behalf by power of attorney to negotiate best help available for them. Directly contact GPs, consultants, third-party front line service providers to meticulously seek help because they become so exhausted and worn out dealing with the longterm pain. Above all, God is the healer who did surgery and took Adam’s rib used to create Eve, yet Adam healed instantly so woke up immediately and saw his wife. Seek God’s Divine intervention to heal pain of loved one in the mind, body and soul resurrected in Christ into eternity. Be faithful and loyal not to grow weary in well doing because taking care of the loved one can take its toll on feelings or emotions. Ask for strength from God to do your duties in love as unto the LORD knowing your reward is in heaven. Bear with loved ones, chronic pain affects all areas of life. Be there for them, pray for strength to live in peace of God passing all human understanding in the Name of Jesus. Bless and tell them about love of Jesus and eternal life in Christ.
Bereaved mother’s day celebrates their precious memories of loved ones who passed into heaven. Mothers nurture children so their loss feels like the heart is ripped out. After crying until no more tears left this day is also a time to reflect on good times to remember loved ones. Recalling a loved ones nature, favourite foods, jokes, life, personality, nuances is still part of life within family. Continue to talk if ones feels like doing so, cry if it is how one feels, sing, dance, join others especially friends to express loved one’s life from various forms. Family, friends, colleague’s take on life with loved ones different so shared experiences from a fascinating perspective. memory book and collage of loved ones to post on a wall, Facebook, website anywhere they are celebrated. Passing into Glory is not the end of life neither is it an end of your life. Heaven is continuation of life on earth so continue to remember and to honour memories. Out of all the challenges of life the loss of a child is the worst form of pain because no one expects to bury their child. One expects children as arrows in the quiver to bury parents to continue the family line. Such unexpected events happen in life and despite adversity life goes on. Especially the loved ones do not want to be their source of grief and sorrow forever. One great lesson learnt losing a loved one is one understands how God feels about giving HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON as ransom for many. Bereavement is an experience one cannot fully describe to anyone unless they have personally been through it too. However, God Omnipotent is loving Father even in the midst of pain, grief and sorrow our God is good all the time and all the time God is good. And Father God strengthens and comforts through the Holy Spirit our comforter. There are days one copes better than others and other days one feels like is meaningless without loved ones. Loved one are part of life in family so not lost just because they passed into Glory to be with our LORD. As a matter of heaven connects directly with earth on a constant daily basis that life is in tune with both. God’s will is done on earth as it is in heaven so GOD sends angels to surround and help us sometimes we are unaware of God’s Divine interventions on earth. So mother as many people as you can and if possible keep memories alive and be available to support others in similar situations. God entrusts mothers with a family as stewards and so does the best they can to look after their loved ones. It is important to remember Psalm 117:7 says God cares about the righteous who die so knows and understands the pain of grief. With prayer, praise, Worship of God and support of friends and family a loss is easier to bear.
Mourning with HOPE and trust God to carry you through the dreadful pain of bereavement. Another powerful source of encouragement is to remember that life on earth is a passing journey. Our life on earth is wonderful but as citizens of heaven our real home is heaven in the presence of the LORD Jesus and Father God. Then in Rapture the dead arise together meet Jesus into the clouds into heaven. End time events rapidly approaching on earth point to a world-changing as Jesus said in Matthew 24 warned. And so with God all things are possible including the strength to live and go through bereavement grief with God holds your hands and footsteps of Jesus in the sand carries you through the difficult days. Each day is different so embrace love of God to endure to the end as a faithful steward of God in Jesus Name with thanks and Glory to God.
