NASL <Jesus is Lord,He is the Son of God,He is the Son of Man>,Jesus is God Incarnate,not a god,nor part of God,but G o d Incarnate.<quoted text>
Words of true wisdom for many so-called "Christians".
Thansk for posting - it follows along with what the Pope wrote about yesterday.
Thanks! I wonder how many people will actually take the time to contemplate their own behaviors and thoughts.
"to know yourself is to know the kingdom of God." - Jesus
Jesus went to the Garden of Gethsemane sweat drops of Blood for the iniquities of the whole human race,and for what He was facing.
Jesus was arrested,accused of many things,his accusers lied and also inadvertently declared His true identity.The high priest rent his clothes and cursed Yeshua.
Jesus was humiliated by the Romans and King Herod,and He stayed quiet!
Jesus was questioned by Pontius Pilate,and later Scourged,spit upon,mocked and crowned with thorns, and of course after the Sanhedrin fought to get Him excecuted,Pontius Pilate sentenced Him to Crucifixion.
Jesus was forced to carry His part of the Cross,and we know He fell down several times,and was helped by Simeon,a Jew from another city.
Jesus was nailed to the Cross through His wrists,and FEET,and the cross was raised to the level where all could see Him in the torture of Death by crucifixion.
Jesus was mocked while on the Cross,and of course His beloved Mother was there and John the Apostle,along with Mary of Magdela and other women.All the rest of the Apostles scattered.Of course we know that Peter denied Him three times,and Judas hung himself because he betrayed our Lord and basically trapped Him for the Sanhedrin.
Jesus was quoted on the Cross as handing His precious mother to John the Apostle,telling the thief who believed in Him that they both would be in Paradise together,"Father forgive them(the world basically)for they know not what they are doing."
Jesus after saying He thirst,and the soldier tried to give Him the vinegar water mix in the sponge,He tried to breathe and He stated"It is Finished" gave up His spirit,died a full physical death.
Jesus was taken off the Cross after the Centurian lanced His Side,of which came water and blood, He was handed over to His Mother first,and later His body was given to two disciples to be taken to another man's grave.
As you know the Sanhedrin pleaded with the Romans to SECURE the grave,lesst the Apostles would steal the Body and claim Jesus had Risen.
Jesus Rose again from the dead by the Father's right Hand(The Father's Power to resurrect),He first showed Himself to the women especially Mary of Magdella,than the Apostles later.
Jesus was fully Risen with a glorified Body,it is not a spirit,but a Body that has both the properties of Human flesh and blood,and also the Spirit,and He sits at the Right Hand of His Father in glory,to wait till all His enemies are placed at His Feet.Jesus has the nail scars in His feet and Hands to prove who HE is rightly in all confirmation to what He both suffered and His resurrection Body.
Now tell me NASL what is it I should believe if I take in all of this and allow His Story here to become part of my life in Faith,Hope and Love?
