When Christ died……..

….what happened to Him? Did He spend 3 days in the grave? Did He spend it at the Father’s side? Did He go into the depths of hell? This question came up recently at a “last supper” celebration I attended and it made for some good discussion.

Here’s another question: As the Pharisees struggled to understand why their temple curtain was now ripped in two and its walls dislodged from the trembling ground, the Bible records seven things that Christ had told those present while hanging on the cross. Do you remember what they were? They contain a wealth of theology and hope for the believer.

I await your responses with jubulant expectation!

  1. YES JESUS did. And certainly the Passover Lamb of GOD has nothing to do with eggs, bunny or Easter(Ishtar) at all.

    Jim, I await your comments with heightened expectation!

  2. Sounds like you have some issues to discuss there my friend. Purusing your blog, I’m pleased to discover that you understand the true nature of God (One God revealed in three persons). Your posts are informative, yet I do wish you could summarize your beliefs about a particular topic before dispensing with numerous details and arguments. It would make for easier reading. 😉

    I agree that Easter’s true meaning is presently shrouded in over-commercialzation (like Christmas) which, by the way, is another good topic for conversation. Yet first, I am still interested in your brief thoughts to my questions previously posed.

    Blessings to you!

    Rest or no rest is up to you. Seriously, I dont think any human body is made to work 7 days a week, 365 days a year…

    Jesus said “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. ” Matt11

    This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. Heb10

  5. 1818. Prophecy given to Raymond Aguilera on 22 April 2005 at 5:50 AM
    Prophecy:

    As a pencil comes to a point, so will the United States be stretched. From the east coast, to the west coast, the country will be stretched like a rubber band. People will be complaining about everything, politics to religion, to when the sun comes up. The evil forces will stretch this country. The only thing that will hold it together is Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit and the Father Jehovah.

    Some times the Ways of God are hard. Some times the Ways of God are easy, but it all comes to a point. Whether you will follow the Lord, Jesus Christ of Nazareth, – or the world. Many people look to God for answers, but many people do not follow the Ways of God. And yet they ask God to do this and to do that, but when the need of God is finished – they go back to the worldly ways. The things of the devil will remain of the devil.

    A lot of people believe that religion, seeking the Lord Jesus of Nazareth, goes too far. Some believe it doesn’t go far enough. Remember the Words of the Bible, you have to get off the fence. Either you are for me or against Me. A lot of people hate God in this world. The devil has done a good job in getting into peoples’ minds and in their hearts. But unless you go on that narrow path with a whole heart, mind, and soul, you will never know.

    Talking about God is not enough. I see all these people writing these little things in these chat rooms expressing their points of views and trying to explain Bible, church doctrine, right and wrong. It is one thing to write, one thing to express your views, it is another thing to follow the Lord with a clean heart, clean mind. Talk is easy, talk is cheap! If you want to follow the Lord, read the Bible, from beginning to end, pray. Stand, get on your knees, lie down, it doesn’t matter, but pray. Pray with your heart. Pray with your soul. And don’t babble just empty words, because God can read your heart.

    You do not think it is possible, especially when you are hurting so bad and you are crying the tears of pain. You feel there is no God. There is no one listening. There is no one with compassion. But there is a God. He listens to your tears. He wipes your eyes if you let Him. He will hold you and hug you and kiss you, if you give Him a chance.

    He will solve your problems, but you have to follow the ways of the Lord. You have to READ THE BIBLE! You have to PRAY! You have to have COMMUNION! You have to HELP your brothers and sisters in the street, in your neighborhood, people in your family. You have to kill that pride. You have to take that extra step. Then you will produce fruit for the Lord and this fruit will produce more fruit. And before you know it, you will have a large Christian family, but the only way this will work is – if you have the Heart of God, the sincerity of that Love that points into the direction of Heaven. But don’t do it for Heaven’s sake, don’t do it for anything but yourself.

    For there comes a day of an accounting of what you have done, what you didn’t do, what you should have done. Don’t let it stop you if you have done some bad things. Repent, drop to your knees, pray to the Lord. He will forgive you, but just saying the words mean nothing. You have to change your heart. You have to change the way you live. Evil breeds evil. The Fruit of God produces the Fruit of God.

    Remember the Commandments; Love God with your hold heart, mind and soul and Love thy neighbor as thyself. Do your job and God will do His. But the road of life is bumpy, it has its pot holes, its ups and downs and its turns to the right and to the left. But focus on the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth and the Holy Spirit will guide you and will direct you to the Arms of the Father Jehovah. Peace be with you My Children. Peace be with you. The Lord God sees everything, hears everything. So be it! So be it! So be it! (over)
