Easter has passed once again, but Lorraine has wrote ‘ EASTER THOUGHTS’. so enjoy and be inspired by this article written by our creative writer Lorraine
Another Easter reflection and honoring of the sacrifice of Jesus has passed. As Jesus lifted his head to see the three crosses on the hill above him from his blood stained face, he stumbled. Crying out in pain he was pulled up roughly and forced on. He thought, ‘On which one will it be that I die for my God’s decree to be fulfilled?’
Bruised and broken by blows from his captors and nailed to the middle cross, his life blood emptied for the salvation of us all. Above the jeers and ridicule from below a feeble voice echoed,
‘Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.’
And Jesus’s breath was no more.
This is the echo that our Lord proclaims to all today in 2017. The rejection of his love, the moral indiscretions, lack of truth, justice and honesty, overcomes the world today. Be very aware people, of the decay that has set in to our world because it is subtle and soul destroying. The self- interests and indulgence of humanity and of those in high positions, the corruption in a lot of circles of influence, in contrast to the economically deprived and increasing violence and addictions, cannot be ignored. Are we, as Christians, hearing enough, doing enough, speaking up enough? What are we offering in the face of judgement day? The Lord is biding his time ready to harvest his garden of souls. Today’s attack from Satan is very, very subtle where he divides and destroys family values.
Malachi, Chapter three, verse 2-5. ‘But who can endure the day of his coming? Who can stand when he appears? For he, will be like a refiner’s fire or a launderer’s soap. He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver. Then the Lord will have men who will bring offerings in righteousness that will be acceptable to the Lord as in days gone by as in former years.’ So I will come near to you for judgement. I will be quick to testify against sorcerer’s, adulterer’s and perjurer’s, against those who defraud laborers of their wages, who oppress the widows and the fatherless and deprive aliens of justice.’ says the Lord.
Are you prepared for your refining toward the ultimate judgement day?
Be Challenged and Get prepared.
