"Good morning world. Today I will be following up with my last blog thoughts that centered around The Last Three Days Jesus spent on the Cross. In that focus knowing that Easter is more than a one day holiday, and that Easter is everything for every day, I will be concentrating on the last words Jesus said as he bowed his head “It is finished.”
In that reflection I have always understood to finish something, something first has to start.
Then that same something has to be completed.
Yes in order to say that something is finished, something has to have begun, been completed, and then been over and done . Accordingly you first have to start something for something to end!
In that thought thinking of the start and conclusion I have been rethinking about the last three days Jesus spent on the Cross, and the cost, also what Heaven gave, and what Jesus lost as he died for us.
Yes indeed I have again realized that everything started at the Bibles beginning.
But for us here on earth believing, and daily searching the sky for our Savior it all started on Christmas Eve.
Yes for us here on earth the road to the Cross started in a manger in a stable, because there was no room in the inn. Absolutely for us with the starving souls everything started on the glorious night when the stars let go shinning brighter than ever before.
Everything for us started when one of the stars lit the sky on fire when the Savior of the world named Jesus Christ was born.
The journey to Calgary continued as Jesus began to grow up, and like a breathtakingly beautiful flower being watered and nourished Jesus was blooming.
In the same way as Jesus lived a life of teaching perfection he showed us how to grow, how to be strong, how to be nourished, and how to bloom too. Yes Jesus showed us everything we needed to know to live our life in the gardens perfume, and how to find the answers to the questions we are seeking.
But then the journey stopped, and as he was judged by man, found guilty of No crime, Jesus Christ went to the Cross.
In that moment knowing that He had to die to take away ALL OF the sin of man, Jesus Christ gave his life for us as he took the nails into his feet and hands!
Yes in the manger and on the Cross in Jesus earthly life was where salvation started.
Yes on the Cross after the in between time of racking undescribed pain as Heaven rained down its tears, to the silent cheers of our thankful souls, Jesus Christ was released from the earthly life that he was leading.
On the Cross was where “it was finished.” And on the Cross was where Jesus took his last breath. On the Cross as he died everything was gone.
In that moment that Jesus said “It is Finished” Jesus then went to his grave where he should have stayed.
Yes under normal circumstances when you die, and when you do not fly, you will stay locked up in the grave!
But that Is the wonderful thing about our Eternally Living Saving Savior, who has always been there from the Beginning of time, because when Jesus said
“it is finished,”
Jesus was really saying....
IT IS JUST BEGINNING!
Yes as Jesus went to his grave, and the Angel rolled the stone away when Jesus Christ AROSE ON THE THIRD DAY to LIVE FOREVER, we have All known from that time on that we “ARE” SAVED and life everlasting was just starting.
Mercifully in that second that True Love left the grave, when Everything for us (the sinners of the world) changed.....
Jesus Christ defeated hades.
And on that glorious Resurrection Hour then Ascension Day, in a shower of adoration Jesus proved to “Finish it,” and for us to be saved…
That the end is really always just the beginning of the day.” Joslin Fitzgerald
Your Prayer of Salvation
Dear Jesus, I know I have done bad things in the past, and that I have done bad things today,and that I will continue to do bad things tomorrow as I am going along my way. Yes that makes me a sinner, just like everyone else in the world everyday, with all of the bad things I am doing and saying.
So, because I am a sinner I know I need a Savior....
Therefore my sins and my unhappiness are why I have come to you today, as I am silently praying, because I want to be eternally happy, and I need to be forever saved.
In saying that Jesus I believe, that you were born on Christmas Day. I believe Jesus, that you lived a perfect life that is written down in the Bible to teach me what is wrong, and show me what is right. And I believe Jesus, in your love for me that you died on the Cross to save me from all of my sins day and night .
Thus in believing Jesus, you are the Son of God I am asking for your forgiveness for all my sins that I know, and those I do not know that I have committed, including the ones that I will continue to daily wallow in, as I claim in Your Eternal scriptural promise in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit that I am now going to heaven.
Yes I claim in my new faith this very Minute that I am saved, because you died for me on the Cross, and in your arising on the third day, I know I will not go to my endless grave.In that statement that just saved my life Thank you Jesus, I am now whole since the Holy Spirit lives within my soul!
Therefore in this prayer I believe that I am born again into heavens sight, and in your Bibical Promise of salvation written in the scriptures I have received ever lasting life! Thus as I am asking you to change my blind darkness to guiding light you are forever my Savior,
Absolutley I pray that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your eternal guiding light, and your Savior today. I know I may never meet you here on earth as we are roaming, but if you truly prayed your prayer, to Jesus requesting forgiveness of your sins, and asking for your salvation you are right now this second saved. And I will see you when we go Away back home!
