This is but one of many paramount examples (for us/to us) of models, morals, greater pictures, teaching, and of guidance (if accepted). Moreover, it was another brief (yet phenomenal) moment in the earthly life of Jesus Christ. How could a simple man have moved small and, eventually, broad masses by way of (among others) telling parables – where people were converted, (with questions, but) without doubts, both during the actual hearing, as well as after (to the present day)?
Revelation 17:14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
My Leader, my Brother,
My Savior, my Friend –
Guide and carry me,
Until that beginning as an end.
Our Father, The Creator,
The Holy, The One –
Lift me to that time
When eternity has only begun.
Hallowed be Thy Names,
Thy Swords to come;
Hallowed are The Words
Which shall never be undone.
On The Eve Of The Great Decline
“Words means things. And these words maybe more than some. . . .”
Many people (and spirits) have been on missions. Many people (and spirits) have also been guided, as well as misguided. Many people (and spirits) have had agendas – some pure with open (true) light and messages, some pure with (purposely) hidden light and messages – while others who were corroded with (false) illumination fulfilled services for the original source of malice, some unreservedly confident, and some concealed though concerted.
In this case/instance, after a few questions and upon objective research, one might find a revealing basis for Bart D. Ehrman’s long history of continually expounding (as a scholar, he rarely fails to point out) his discounting discoveries/”realizations” (in the most public forums possible) about Jesus Christ. Ask yourself, first, regarding his articles, books, or appearances (in this area), is he a believer? Ask yourself, next, did he ever believe (in the Son of God sent and sacrificed as a Savior)? Following, search previous “works” with associated focuses in multiple “efforts” over various years. Through each step, the bottom line answers should eventually become clear.
Has the driven nature of his learned discourse in relation to the “King of Kings” sincerely evolved with concurrently promoted presentations? Or, has it always been just a supposed sharing of studied consummations – which were both (actually) goal-oriented and patently subjective (beyond sight) from the onset?
Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. Revelation 3:12
These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. Revelation 11:6
Easter 2014: How many millions have watched “paranormal” shows and, aside from the predominant fluff, seen indisputable proof of afer-lives/ongoing existence in other planes? How many millions have heard/watched “mediums” speaking the words of those “passed on” and knew, “My God, that was real”? How few have realized from the latter/former that what was witnessed/experienced, positively, could open avenues toward understanding, and eventually accepting, realities of Spirit? Accepting may be first, in steps. Understanding may be first. The aspects may work together as a coinciding wonder. In whatever singular or combined path (of/for purity), getting to that initial door is of a highest magnitude – for one to receive ongoing keys.
Further, though there is and was crucial Truth to Jesus Christ literally returning to be among His people for forty days, what if, just for an openings’ sake, one took time to correspond “medium-type” occurrences (back then), at least as possibilities in some instances of those passages? Could Jesus have spoken through Mary Magdalene in such a way that the Apostles had no doubt where and of who it was coming? Maybe she was “gifted” in that way – collective to being especially chosen? As in Acts 2:2, could Peter, and all of them (including various scribes and followers) have had experiences so overwhelming that certain doors of Truth were opened forever? Regarding “paranormal” relations (again for openings’ sake), what more may Mary and the rest have seen/witnessed after His death? What events were so powerful, which, after all the previous miracles, moved them to seek to move all others with such absolute fervor and confidence?
