Mark 16 King James Version (KJV)
1.And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.
2 And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.
3 And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre?
4 And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.
5 And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.
6 And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.
Good morning, good afternoon and evening everyone!
May you all have a blessed Easter Sunday. And I do understand some of us Christians do celebrate Easter on a different day along with the Sabbath being on Saturday. So this is for everyone.
My concern with people who do celebrate Easter without really knowing what they are truly celebrating. Without understanding the whole meaning as to why JESUS gave up His life on the cross.

Jesus’ Side is Pierced
33 But when they came to Jesus and saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs. 34 Instead, one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water flowed out. 35 The one who saw it has testified to this, and his testimony is true. He knows that he is telling the truth, so that you also may believe.
We who do love the LORD suffer and as a follower because we love the LORD. I will share this with you. At work it seems that I am one who does love the LORD, going by what discernment. There are many who seem to feel conviction at the sins they do and try their best to find fault in anything I do. Because they know I am a Christian.
“Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.”
King James Version (KJV)
Some will seek to start a battle , but I step back from this nonsense and let GOD be the true judge of the situation at hand. See, there are mostly females where I work in this area and department at this company. Women are known to be insecure at times. And this is quite the test d of faith to have when you have one or two who try to will “test” you with an evil heart.
James 1:2 – 1:4
2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
3 Knowing [this], that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
4 But let patience have [her] perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
They are not followers of Christ and listen to the devils temptations of evil deeds to do. This perticular co-worker is doing just that. I am polite and remember that GOD will forgive me of the nonsense I have done as long as I forgive people of the nonsense the have done to me. And GOD is fair.
I have done my best to be polite and leave this person alone and to have a peaceful lunch time quietly with my savior. I did not see this woman in the area I was heading to sit down and get comfortable with my ear buds on. Sure enough, she and a friend of hers sat right behind me , with her friend knocking into the back of my chair. I turned around to see what was going on. The co-worker said loudly “look at her face!” When I said nothing, she then proceeded to talk about other co-workers. So this is not just me that she was disrespecting.
“God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”
King James Version (KJV)
I have seen this sin before many times, but with a different face. You seek peace….to sit alone not to bother anyone and then one of the disciples of satan come around like a menacing horse fly at a picnic.
I finished my lunch, got up and walked away not giving evil a satisfaction of a response. And this was going on as she was talking about Easter plans with her friend. Her heart is not in the right place and understanding as to where it should be for Easter.
No matter how nice you are to people who are lost, they will see you as weak and can walk over you. Each time I do wait to see what GOD will do. I will see GOD work a miracle defending my honor as HE will with all who love HIM.
Luke 6:27 – 28
27 But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,
28 Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.
GOD loves us and HE has shown this with HIS son Jesus With all that our beloved savior has gone through from day one on this earth it is an amazing example of faith that we need to follow. JESUS is a perfect example has how to follow GOD and trust in HIM at all times. Doing GOD’s will.

Jesus came to save all mankind’s souls. Many people who are the ones who are negative and seek to start issues with other people do not have faith in GOD. They are clouded and will never understand what you say and will always be against you. Same things that was done to JESUS when you read about it in the Bible.
Proverbs 4: 14 -16
14 Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men.
15 Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away.
16 For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall.
This is why I find it useless to confront people who have done what this lost soul has done. I tell you about this because as we go through our days waiting for JESUS to return we need to be ready. There are many distractions going on with people who are lost. We all need to remember what this day we celebrate was for…our salvation!
“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things arehonest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
King James Version (KJV)
If we remember what our savior JESUS went through for us, we can get through this with HIM. We all will be tested. I tell you what happened to me to encourage you to get through your trials too. JESUS is always there to help us all get through to the next day. Ask me how I know, and I will tell you.
May you be blessed as you read ans pass this blog forward with sharing . And with the word of GOD listed in this blog.
