Cosmic Ripples – RESURRECTION

What happens Next?

Resurrection splinters real life and eternity

An Easter Monday Thought

Historically the RESURRECTION of Christ changed everything.   For believers and Followers of Him a new Church Age was born, and Jesus became the Head of a new RELIGION.  

           BELIEVERS lived transformed lives and their dawning certainty that Jesus Christ was not another religion but A PERSONAL SAVIOUR AND EVERLASTING Companion , Changed Modern Life in the 21st Century. ………….

                500 people saw the resurrected Jesus as recorded in the WORD but what happened in a cosmic sense may never be fully known.  In the 40days before His ASCENSION where did He Journey?     He appeared to HIS disciples – the Bible has many examples ……   but I wonder……….

            From the islands of the sea, across Europe, Africa, The Americas… pagan tribes of people began looking up for meaning to their lives. The American Indians had Manitoba THE GREAT SPIRIT in the sky as their GOD.   The Australian Aborigines the rainbow serpent.   Grand parents on Pacific Islands began to leave a legacy of expectancy about the coming of the LIGHT.     

      In Papua New Guinea when missionaries came and said JESUS IS THE LIGHT OF THE WHOLE WORLD, the message of the Saviour of souls and His Sacrifice on the CROSS made more sense.    A personal Saviour.       Devoid of all churchianity.     it made sense.  

       Many missionaries in Africa, Ireland, England were amazed and recorded surprise at how many were already believers in the Saviour Christ before they arrived.   HOW?  There was astonishment expressed at the knowledge of Christ among … pockets of Druid Pagans.    

        Even Patrick in Ireland who faced hostility,  …. found pockets of remote tribal people who knew and understood his Message of Salvation as if they were expecting him. .   

      Sadly. the simplicity of the message was blinded by Empire building and Church Culture.   Even Political Ideology blurred The Message

       Our Saviour rose from death to seal His Salvation and Promise of eternal life.       

       Let’s live triumphantly with and FOR HIM.     

        Amen.

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
