Today.. Christ Died For Me.

Hello and Good Friday readers. I hope everyone is doing well today.

Well, as most Christians know, today is Good Friday. Today is the day that Christ died on a cross for our sins. He was a completely innocent man, but the world didn’t think so.

Even today, the majority of the world sees Jesus as just a man. Why is that?

All I know is that he is still my Savior, my Provider, my Lord. He still heals the sick, and forgives the sinner. He is still ALIVE!

I really don’t know much more to say right now.

Do you believe in Jesus? Is He your Savior?

Until next time readers, God Bless!

Easter, and What Science Says About It

Hello readers! Today I wanted to take a look back at a blog post I posted back on April 19,2011 that talks about Easter and an article I found. Enjoy!

———————————

Good evening readers. I came across this article from Fox News yesterday, and thought I should share it. Easter is coming up this weekend, so I thought it was something to think about.

I really am not into science when it comes to Christianity, so I will be sticking to my beliefs and what the Bible says. Read the article and let me know what you think.

Scientist Claims Last Supper Was a Day Earlier

Published April 19, 2011| FoxNews.com

Christians have long celebrated The Last Supper of Jesus Christ on Maundy, the Thursday before Easter, but new research released Monday claims that evidence shows it took place on the Wednesday before the Crucifixion.

Prof. Colin Humphreys, a scientist at the University of Cambridge in England, believes the mistaken date is due to a calendar mix-up — and says his findings strengthen the case for finally introducing a fixed date for Easter, AFP reports.

In his attempt to pinpoint the exact timing of Jesus’ final meal, Humphreys used a combination of biblical, historical and astronomical research

The Bible’s different versions of Jesus’ Last Supper with his disciples have left researchers puzzled for centuries.

While Matthew, Mark and Luke all say the Last Supper coincided with the start of the Jewish festival of Passover, John claims it took place before Passover, AFP reports.

In his new book, “The Mystery Of The Last Supper,” Humphrey’s concludes that Jesus, along with Matthew, Mark and Luke, may have been using a different calendar than John was.

“Whatever you think about the Bible, the fact is that Jewish people would never mistake the Passover meal for another meal, so for the Gospels to contradict themselves in this regard is really hard to understand,” Humphreys said.

Humphreys’ theory is that Jesus went by an old-fashioned Jewish calendar rather than the official lunar calendar that was in widespread use at the time of his death and is still in use today, AFP reports.

This would put the Passover meal — and the Last Supper — on the Wednesday, explaining how so many events took place between the meal and the Crucifixion.

It would follow that Jesus’ arrest, interrogation and separate trials did not all take place in the space of one night, but occurred over a longer period.

According to Humphreys, the set date for Easter Day should be April 5.

Pull The Plug!

Hello again readers! I hope ou are doing great today!

Yesterday at my church (NorthChurch.tv), we celebrated our 10 year anniversary. The sermon was AMAZING! I always like hearing Pastor Rodney speak. Below is a picture of what the outside of the church looked like.

I kind of wanted to touch on what was talked about. I have considered myself a Christian since 1998. There have been times where I was on fire for God, and following in His steps. There have also been times where I was very distant from God, and could care less about what He wanted for my life.

In the sermon yesterday, the biggest thing that got me was the analogy that my Pastor mentioned about life support and death. Death is apart of life. There is no stopping it. You, myself, and everyone that exists will die. What a lot of Christians don’t grasp, is that when we become a Christian, we have to spiritually die, before we physically die.

What do I mean by that? Basically, when you become a Christian, your life should be transformed. You are a new person. The things you do should be radically different now that you have Jesus in your life. Of course, like myself, there will be struggles. I guess what I and a lot of us need to do is… Pull The Plug! Disconnect from our old life and die spiritually. Until we do so, we will never know the true greatness that God has in store for us.

Are you ready to pull the plug?? I am.

Until next time readers, God Bless!
