EASTER: The Savior Rising
Because He Loves Us
A Savior Rising
Born in Bethlehem. He was a good student, a hard worker and a seeker of knowledge. Because he was a non-conformist, he didn't fit it. Because he treated people with kindness and respect, they thought him senseless. And, because he was a demonstrator of mercy and grace, it was the desire of the Pharisees, Sadducees and Roman soldiers to oft times, even before the crucifixion, desire to kill him. The wisdom spoken through Jesus caused pain to their eyes and ears. He blemished their egos. Made them to appear less than he. How, that one could accomplish impossibilities, alone; which they could not conquer with more.
Every question presented to Jesus, he precisely answered, save one. And that he would have answered on the condition that they first tell him their answer to that same question. The core, the source, is it the same between he and they, or different? The essence, is the look thereof the same, or different? The spirit, is it without blemish, freely given, clean and holy, neither vexed nor vain? Or is it soaked in self glory, manipulation and pride. Such that, when compassion is present, that egotistical spirit would desire to throw the source of passionate compassion head first over a mountain.
However, due to the greatest gift, prophesied and confessed by annointed angels, men and women of God, Jesus was nailed to the cross. Some say, the text was changed, that he was originally nailed to a 'tree'. Nonetheless, nailed he was, and it was done for the divine and natural rights and freedom of all of humanity..
After enduring such horrific pain; and some would say hilarious shame, the battle was not yet over, there was victory to gain. Jesus fought hell, unending torture, and won. He fought death; and although there were no signs of life and in spite of being buried in the tomb, he lived, and won again. He fought destruction, as a species selected for extinction, but refused to be only fossil found, for three days later, he rose from the ground, in full force and power.
The same is now, as it was then upon his resurrection. For to whom He chooses, He manifests himself. To whom hath ears to hear, hears Jesus' calling and leading and guidance. And yet a little while, all shall see his glorious radiance.
