Everyone is talking of the Passion, , and having such discussions about
the death of Poor Jesus and what He went through, indeed He was
tortured. He was beaten, yes, his Blood poured. He was then hung on the
cross and there he stood forsaken by all, it seemed, mocked, spat upon.
All of the disciples seem to flee, or deny knowing Him. (AS HIS MOTHER
CLUNG TO THAT CROSS, THAT HELD HER SON JESUS CHRIST, THE CHILD FROM
His presence, as He died even His father God could not
look, as all of your and my and everyone's (yesterday, today and
tomorrow) sins were placed on there, killing Jesus.
The earth shook, as the Veil of the temple was ripped
from the TOP to the bottom, making the way for entry, for human beings,
into the real presence of God Himself, as it was in the garden, before
sin happened there.
No more forgiveness through a priest,
Jesus was the last and the PERFECT SACRIFICE, FOR THE SINS OF THE
INDEED JESUS, died...
and it was a horrid death
that He knew (even in the garden, as he prayed beforehand) that He was
going to die like this. Still He knew, even knowing, this fact, that
this is the only way for man's way back to God (who had created all
Now this act of Mercy and Love took more guts than
anyone would ever have to ever do again.
The greatest LOVE ever shown is when Jesus declared "not
my will, but yours be done" as He prayed once again to His Father.
Jesus knew this death was going to hurt beyond any
measure. It is no wonder He sweated so hard knowing what was to come.
No one likes pain. NO ONE. ( Pain hurts).
But Jesus knew also that pain was going to be only for a
moment (as time goes) but that Salvation was to be for eternity!
Because He also trusted that He was going to return to live again,
arise, yes, back alive, scarred, but very much alive,...
ALL Of the posters here [on the Passion movie] and the
comments are on the pain of Jesus, but can you just imagine the sheer
joy of when Jesus awakened inside of that old tomb.(which had so opened
it's mouth to hold the remains of the beaten to a pulp Savior) to have
trembled back 'open' for the dead's resting place to be shown empty, as
Jesus stood up, as a whole man again, whole as only God can be made or
People have placed too much emphasis on the 'death' and hardly any on
REMEMBER JESUS arose from the
Sure OUR SAVIOR ,Jesus died, but Praise God, On the third morning, THAT
VERY SAME JESUS arose and was alive and well., once again.
But this time it was different,
There is no killing Him any more., EVER AGAIN. JESUS is
alive forever. and forever.
Now, this should be the happy part; we should be remembering as we post
here, about this Passionate subject, this day, when all of everyone
talks about the death. Like Jesus, like when He is born. It is His
birthday that we celebrate at Christmas.
It seems, the world does not ever get past the infant
stage of our Savior being Born. (Why?, He was simply born to die.) Just
like this for us.
He was born to die! Just as this movie predicts. But,
some will think that death is the ending of that movie, when it was
only the beginning of real life, nay, it did not stop there, Jesus is:
this day, still alive.....
He arose from that grave that they placed Him in (it was only a
'borrowed grave' at that because he was only going to use it three days
and it could be returned to whomever it was borrowed from) and Jesus
returns to walk with his disciples alive once more, and still is
Jesus IS NOT that little Baby that lies each Christmas
in the manger, in a cave-barn with animals.
Jesus grew into a man at the tender nurturing of His
parents and teachings of God. He lived a good life going about doing
miracles, healing, bringing back to life the dead.
So you see, He not only died (as the holiday of Good
Friday tells about each year, when we mourn His death) but just
remember the greatest season of all is when we celebrate His
resurrection, and that one is Easter.....
The world celebrates then .....
Jesus is celebrated then for being alive once more and
what's more we can be 'like Him', if only we accept the Love he gave
for each of us, so freely.... What are we willing to give to Him.
Just remember also that it is the Holy Spirit of this
same Lord, that gave this man Mel Gibson, the unction to do this movie
of the death the real death of the World's Savior, but the Jesus of
Nazerath is still alive and, guess what, He will enter and live inside
of your own heart. He actually can be a part of you, 'if' you let Him
The best part is yet to come. He is now seated at the right hand of
Father God as the world's people's High priest. There He is seated to
make intercession for them (all of us people of the world) in prayer.
The world is His footstool and He has returned to Heaven from whence He
first came, as that tiny Baby in Bethlehem, but do not stop with this
Do not feel so sorry that you forget WHY JESUS DIED. It

Tis' true, He died for us, willingly,
Thank you for reading if you have gotten this far. I
just had to make known that Jesus still lives 'right now,' even though
you have seen him be killed..... once again!!!!!!
Sure, they killed him, but three days later he lived
again and know this for sure, there will be NO KILLING of Him this
He will live eternally !
So can we, 'if' we only but believe. and ask His
forgiveness and live for Him. After all He gave His all for You now.
Right this minute He is busy, now in preparing a place
for you and me, with Himself, so that we may one day join Him to live
forever. Think about this....and rejoice...... (selah)
Now all I ask of you, the reader of this, just ask
yourself this one question
"WHAT AM 'I' Personally, GOING TO DO WITH MY SAVIOR, JESUS
CHRIST....(now ponder your answer ).
