The Gateway Pundit has an article (above), but don’t worry about Israel or the Christians being persecuted in Egypt because the shipping documents on the gas said that the items were to be used by the Egyptian Government and not to be sold to 3rd parties.    (*cough* Benghazi *cough*)

Just a quick post before I get to go to church.

I often think of the story in Luke where Christ’s followers went to the tomb carrying oils and spices.  These items were used in burial services for the dead.  Simple enough to understand if these same followers had no knowledge that Jesus would rise from the grave, the interesting thing is that they DID know he was to rise from the grave and it was in unbelief that they sought to attend his body.  To me this is a wonderful hope for those who struggle with doubts about Jesus.  If the people who witnessed His miracles in the flesh had a hard time believing in his resurrection, how much harder would it be for people 2000 years later?  To me it shows us that God understands our fallibility perfectly, I mean he had stationed an angel in the tomb to wait for the mourners!  If they were loved and saved in their imperfect belief how much more grace will God provide to us?  I struggled with doubts for many years, but upon reading and understanding this story I felt freed.  It is ok to question and seek, in fact I think it is encouraged.  God wants Hot or Cold in our feelings towards Him, and research and questioning is the only way to learn.  I just would like to thank God publicly for the life and death and resurrection of His son, so that I may be freed from the bondage of sin and saved unto eternal life!  HOW COOL IS THAT?

Christians in America

"Give us Barabbas!" (from The Bible ...

“Give us Barabbas!” (from The Bible and its Story Taught by One Thousand Picture Lessons, 1910). (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

 

Barabbas was a man from the Bible, he was guilty of sedition, and murder.  He could be seen as a rebel leading an insurrection (a community organizer perhaps), and was loved by the people.  His name means Son of a man (as far as my non-Hebrew language skills can tell ((heck I barely speak English and its my natural language)).

 

I find it interesting that when Jesus was brought before Pilate, Pilate did not want him to die.  The choice was given to the people.  Execute the Son of Man who was guiltless, or the Son of A man who was guilty, and the activist walked free while innocence was nailed to a tree.

 

This tragedy opened the way for the greatest gift humanity ever received, eternal salvation.  The beauty of God’s plan was that He knew our fallibility and knew what we would do, and this seeming loss was the greatest victory ever won.

 

As we approach Easter, I believe we should prepare for an even greater victory.  The culmination of Good versus Evil.  As the world stands in awe once more, of a community organizer, of seditious and vain glorious leaders of rebellions, and of organized Evil that is (like Herod and Rome) in control of all aspects of life, we need to seriously attempt the Great Commandment to go and tell the greatest story ever told.

 

We need to remember to Matthew 18:35  So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.
