Praise GOD for anther day of life and glory be to HIM! For as we all know these are the last hours before the time when our savior will return to take us all who love HIM out of this dwelling into HIS heavenly place of love and peace. AMEN!!!
You know what? Even though EASTER is this Sunday, and we are to remember our JESUS for all that HE has done to save all of us mankind from the sins that we have done. Just to think about what HE had gone through just to save our souls.
And if you know what it is like to be :
Being falsely accused of saying, doing or being a certain way
Hated by those who do not even know you
Left out or over looked
Having family see you as odd
Hit or given pain
Know what it is to have a loved one die
No place to lay your head at night or a home to call your own
Have a friend betray you
Suffer pain and humiliation for one you love
LOVED SOMEONE SO THAT YOU WOULD LAY DOWN YOUR LIFE FOR THEM but they did not love you as much as you loved them.
I could go on and I am sure you can add to whatever it is I may have left out. But you know that OUR JESUS had gone through this and more. We have treated our beloved JESUS horrible, be it you know it or not. Be it was just some homeless person on the street, a co-worker, your family member or church member. It as not cool. It hurt our JESUS. Even if it were unintentionally, or with intent.
Our JESUS went thru such non sense with us mankind as HE walked this earth. He could have just turned the people who gave HIM a hard time into dust and watch it blow away. But HE did not, because of love. JESUS loves the person and not the sin it self. Sin is from satan and is not of GOD. So, if it is not GOD led, it is evil led.
JESUS, looked more worse than this is shown in movies from the whipping, beatings and whatever else HE had gone through even BEFORE HE nailed to the cross!
John 19:1 Context
1Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him. 2And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe, 3And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands. 4Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him.
We people are the very reason why we needed a savior from the hell we belong to be in. But because of love we are in the period of grace. The suffering dear JESUS went through was so horrible for 33 years.
When you think about how much the cross beam of the cross that our JESUS was to carry it is said it weighed about 100 pounds. And the whole cross with the cross beam in total about 300 pounds. So with all of the pain and lashings our JESUS got before this…that beam was laying on some of those hurt spots. Every stone or rock it hit as he was dragging it along bouncing onto the wounds HE bore for us all. Those streets were not paved with black top you know.
Having the thorns make cuts that had his blood going into HIS eyes with the sweat….making it hard to see. Having those who hated JESUS mocking HIM with every step HE took thinking it was funny. JESUS struggling to carry that burden through all of that until with the last stubble when Simon of Cyrene helped our JESUS.
And those of us who loved JESUS by the side weeping for HIM as all we could do was to watch all of this happen to our savior. And for those who knew why and what JESUS was doing it still was hard. For they knew they would not see HIM again until HE was risen. Painful, painful to see one who was so good and pure go thru what HE had to go through for us all.
I cried the first time I saw a movie where our JESUS was crucified and I still will. There is not other love like this that has ever walked the face of the earth since the garden of Eden when GOD fellowshipped with Adam and Eve before the fall. None.
When you realize the love and passion our JESUS had for us …. to come down to heaven and go through what HE DID. We all need to be grateful that we have a way out of this fallen world to be with GOD the FATHER and JESUS for all eternity and not have to be around this wickedness in this fallen world ever again.
We will have peace.
“Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.”
King James Version (KJV)
“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”
King James Version (KJV)
JESUS has saved us from the torment of hell from the sacrifice that HE gave. A gift of freedom. Let it be known that you are free from all sin from repentance and following HIM. Letting JESUS lead you through your faith in HIM.
We are free from the bondage and lies that are told to us by the evil one! Yay! Thank you dear JESUS for all that you have done!
May you all have a blessed Easter Sunday in giving thanks for our salvation and freedom!

This is a great reminder, JJ! May we reflect on this and our Lord JESUS CHRIST’ atoning sacrifice and resurrection. Blessings to you and your family!
