Remember those who lost their lives.

Today being memorial day, I just wanted to give notice to those who have lost their lives in the service.  Weather you agree with the different conflicts or wars or the politicians that start them, I think we all can say the loss of life is a tragedy and so many families have lost so much. 
This image is of my friend Dave who served as a military Chaplin in the Army.  He did tours in Afghanistan and Iraq during some of the worst of it.  This was a memorial to two of the guys in his platoon that died in Iraq in 2006.  I'm sure the guys in that group remember that sad day still, and always will.
After Iraq, Dave was stationed at Arlington National Cemetery where he had the tough duty of presiding over military funerals.  Often at a rate of two or more a day.  I have no words for what I believe that must have been like, as he had to meet the families of lost soldiers and attempt to say something meaningful at their graves.  I hope we all can realize what we have today and give our loved ones a hug.  Some will never see theirs again.

He is Alive! Happy Easter

He is alive!  The tomb is empty.  Death could not hold Him!

Early on Sunday morning, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance. She ran and found Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved. She said, “They have taken the Lord’s body out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!”
Peter and the other disciple started out for the tomb. They were both running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. He stooped and looked in and saw the linen wrappings lying there, but he didn’t go in. Then Simon Peter arrived and went inside. He also noticed the linen wrappings lying there, while the cloth that had covered Jesus’ head was folded up and lying apart from the other wrappings. Then the disciple who had reached the tomb first also went in, and he saw and believed, for until then they still hadn’t understood the Scriptures that said Jesus must rise from the dead. Then they went home.
Mary was standing outside the tomb crying, and as she wept, she stooped and looked in. She saw two white-robed angels, one sitting at the head and the other at the foot of the place where the body of Jesus had been lying. “Dear woman, why are you crying?” the angels asked her.
“Because they have taken away my Lord,” she replied, “and I don’t know where they have put him.”
She turned to leave and saw someone standing there. It was Jesus, but she didn’t recognize him. “Dear woman, why are you crying?” Jesus asked her. “Who are you looking for?”
She thought he was the gardener. “Sir,” she said, “if you have taken him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will go and get him.”
“Mary!” Jesus said.
She turned to him and cried out, “Rabboni!” (which is Hebrew for “Teacher”).
“Don’t cling to me,” Jesus said, “for I haven’t yet ascended to the Father. But go find my brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’”
Mary Magdalene found the disciples and told them, “I have seen the Lord!” Then she gave them his message.
That Sunday evening the disciples were meeting behind locked doors because they were afraid of the Jewish leaders. Suddenly, Jesus was standing there among them! “Peace be with you,” he said. As he spoke, he showed them the wounds in his hands and his side. They were filled with joy when they saw the Lord! Again he said, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I am sending you.” Then he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive anyone’s sins, they are forgiven. If you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.”

One of the twelve disciples, Thomas (nicknamed the Twin), was not with the others when Jesus came. They told him, “We have seen the Lord!”
But he replied, “I won’t believe it unless I see the nail wounds in his hands, put my fingers into them, and place my hand into the wound in his side.”
Eight days later the disciples were together again, and this time Thomas was with them. The doors were locked; but suddenly, as before, Jesus was standing among them. “Peace be with you,” he said. Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here, and look at my hands. Put your hand into the wound in my side. Don’t be faithless any longer. Believe!”
“My Lord and my God!” Thomas exclaimed.
Then Jesus told him, “You believe because you have seen me. Blessed are those who believe without seeing me.”
The disciples saw Jesus do many other miraculous signs in addition to the ones recorded in this book. But these are written so that you may continue to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing in him you will have life by the power of his name.

1 Corinthians 15 (writen by Paul): Let me now remind you, dear brothers and sisters, of the Good News I preached to you before. . . . .It is this Good News that saves you if you continue to believe the message.
Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said would happen. He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said. He was seen by Peter and then by the Twelve. After that, he was seen by more than 500 of his followers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have died (if you want to go check it out). Then he was seen by James and later by all the apostles. Last of all, as though I had been born at the wrong time, I also saw him. For I am the least of all the apostles, in fact, I’m not even worthy to be called an apostle after the way I persecuted God’s church.

I AZ feel like Paul.  I used to mock believers and read the bible to find fault to prove them wrong.  I did not come to belief until I was 42, when God did some miraculous and radical things in my life and got my attention.  Just like Paul sometimes I feel I am not worthy at all.  But Jesus has grace for even me!

Forgiveness, The Purpose of Easter

Forgiveness, The Purpose of Easter
Jesus said in Matthew 20:28 "Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give His life a ransom for many."  He also said this as the time for his death was approaching, John 12:27 "Now is My soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father save Me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour."  So it appears that for this death, that forgives us of our mistakes (sin) was His purpose.   Even when being nailed to a cross he said “Forgive them Lord they know not what they do”.   When giving us what is now called by many The Lord’s Prayer we see forgiveness, “forgive us or debts, as we forgive our debtors”  and right after that Jesus said this (Matthew 6:14-15) For if you forgive men their trespasses’ your heavenly father will also forgive you.  But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will you Father forgive your trespasses.”
Forgiveness is so important to keep our walk with God from being derailed.  In Hebrews 12 it says we should peruse peace with all men least a root of bitterness overtake us.  Bitterness can short circuit or lives by keeping us in a state of unhappiness and causes behavior that is unproductive and pushes people away.  Forgiveness is key in our walk and it one of the main purposes that Jesus came to die in our place so we would be forgiven, and in turn forgive. 

Latter when He came back to life He encountered Peter as Peter was fishing.  Peter had followed Jesus for three years and told Jesus he would die for Him, but when it came time to take a stand, he denied he even knew Jesus three times.  And then he returned to his old life of being a fisherman.  Jesus came and asked three times if Peter loved Him, giving him three chances to make up for his three denials, and after each gave him a purpose or task, saying feed my sheep.  This is how it works, forgiveness gives purpose to life.  This is how Jesus forgives, for each time we have failed he gives us a chance to make it right and in that continue our purpose and reason to be.   Have you followed Jesus but for some reason turned your back on him and returned to your old life, and old ways?  Well if you have He wants to say again, “Do you love me?”  and forgive you and give you another chance, and with it again fill your life with purpose and meaning. 

Perfect Timing

Perfect Timing

To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven. Ecclesiastes 3:1 This may ring a bell it was used in a popular song Turn Turn Turn. It was the adaptation of Ecclesiasties 3 put to music by Pete Seeger in 1959. Seeger waited until 1962 to record his own version of it. Most people know the Byrds version. What I find interesting is how there was a time for every purpose mandated in advance for the death of Jesus.

When Jesus arrived in Jerusalem the week He was crucified it all happened with amazing timing to line up and correspond to prophecies and the Passover festival that all foretold of the event or was a picture of the event. The first event of the “Passion Week” or the Easter week is Jesus entering Jerusalem on a donkey. This happened on March 29th in the year 33, if you are using the Julian calendar. It was Nisan 9 3793 by the Jewish calendar. So what makes that perfect timing? Well in the bible in Daniel 9:25-26 there is a claim that the messiah will come sixty-nine weeks after a command to restore and build the temple. The command to rebuild the temple was on March 4th 444 B. C. (See Nehemiah 2:1-8). So what does this sixty-nine weeks mean? It was referring to sixty-nine groups of seven years. Back then the Prophetic year was 360 days. If we multiply 7 by 69 and then by 360 we can get the number of days from the date of command to rebuild the temple. So it is 483 years or 173,880 days or March 29th in the year 33. Hey, how did Daniel do that? So you say Jesus knew this and planed it. I say yes, because it was God’s plan for Him He knew it. But could you plan that you would do miracles and people would follow and respond if you were not really Him?
The other interesting thing about that day is it was Nisan 9 in the Jewish calendar. So what is significant about Nisan 9? Nisan 9 is the day the Jewish people selected or chose the lamb that was to be sacrificed in the temple for Passover. Kind of strange irony there if you ask me. Jesus shows up on a donkey and people want him to be their King, but He knows He knows He is just there to be the lamb selected for sacrifice.
The death of Jesus took place on Nisan 14 between the sixth and ninth hour. This is shown in in Luke 23:44. So what is significant about this time? This is the same hour of the day that the priests of the temple were to sacrifice the Passover lamb. This of course is celebrated in remembrance of the lamb they were commanded to kill in Egypt and place the blood at the doorstep of their homes, which lead to their freedom from Egyptian bondage. And we were set free from bondage to sin at this moment in time.
The burial of Jesus: The festival of unleavened bread began Friday evening (at sunset) what is even more interesting is what the people do at the Passover sadder or dinner. They take three pieces of bread (matzos), break the middle one and wrap it in cloth and hide it, and the children go looking for it. The symbolism is radical. The three pieces represent the Father the Son (Jesus) and the Holy Spirit. The middle one represents Jesus his broken body wrapped in grave cloth, placed hidden in a tomb.

I could write a whole post on this one. The bread traditionally is striped and pierced, just as His body was.
It was during a Passover sadder (a day early) that Jesus proclaimed that the meal represented Him and that He was instituting the New Covenant, which was foretold by Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Isaiah. The celebration of this covenant has become the ordinance of communion in the Christian Church. At the end of the meal, Jesus took the unleavened bread, broke it, and said that it represented His body. Then He took the cup of wine, which would have been the third cup of the Seder (cup of redemption). He said that it was the new covenant, His blood "poured out for you.” It is through the sacrificial death and resurrection of Jesus Christ that we are declared clean before God, allowing those of us who choose to accept the pardon, to commune with Him - both now and forevermore through the eternal life He offers.

What is interesting is Jesus and His disciples had their meal, the so called last supper early. Most of the people would have their Sadder while Jesus was in the tomb, thus the bread would be hidden at this time. For a time line and explanation of events these are good resources   http://www.friktech.com/rel/passover.htm  http://www.jesusfirst.org/free-downloads/articles/timeline.pdf

The resurrection: On Nissan 17 the people have the Feast of First fruits. First fruits is the first day after the Sabbath following Passover. This is when Mary went to the tomb and Jesus was no longer in the tomb. The risen Jesus Christ was seen that morning by Mary near the garden tomb. -John 20:10-18. As part of the festival, the Jews would take some of the grain - the "first fruits" of their harvest - to the Temple to offer as a sacrifice. In so doing, they were offering God all they had and trusting Him to provide. Paul refers to Jesus as the first fruits of those raised from the dead in 1 Corinthians. As such, Jesus represents the fulfillment of God's promise to provide the rest of the harvest - resurrection of those who follow the Messiah.

For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. Matthew 12:40 Jesus observed the Passover with His disciples on Tuesday evening. He was crucified and buried on Wednesday, Passover day. Thursday was the high day annual Sabbath. The women bought burial spices on Friday, prepared them, and then rested on the weekly Sabbath. On the first day of the week they came to anoint Jesus’ body but found the tomb empty because HE WAS RISEN!

David Bowie, You Will Be Missed

One of the most creative musical artists of our time has passed away.  David Bowie.  I first heard of Bowie in high school in 1972.  The Ziggy Stardust album was getting some air play and we all were seeing images of Bowie's persona Ziggy.  And as we listened to songs like Space Oddity, Starman, Suffragette City, The Jean Genie, Panic In Detroit, Rock and Roll Suicide we all knew this was something different.  In 1974 Diamond Dogs came out and a song called Rebel Rebel basted the air waves with a raw, edgy and infectious guitar riff .  I knew I had to see this.  I heard that Bowie was playing The Universal Amphitheater and I went and stood in line to get tickets.  With tickets in hand I asked a girl in my science class if she wanted to go and she of course said yes, not because she wanted to date me but because she wanted to see Bowie.  I was just 16 and I was anticipating the show thinking I would see the Ziggy persona but by late in 1974 Bowie had retired Ziggy and now was now taking on a new persona of the "Slim White Duke" and Bowie traded the raw hard edge sound for a more soulful sound.  The great news was that the show did not disappoint.  It was full of old and newer songs played with a flair and creativity all with a fantastic stage show with amazing props and dancers.  And Bowie made it a theatrical event.  This was more than rock and roll.  I will never forget that amazing show.  Thanks David, you opened my eyes to something new and different.  And just like that you changed again.  And you continued to always change and be fresh and new.  Ch-ch-ch-Changes.  Always changes, always those strange changes.  A true creative genius.  You will be missed.  So here I give you that show that I saw as a 16 year old.

For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given: and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6)
But you Bethlehem. Through you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth to Me The one to be ruler in Israel, Whose goings forth are from of old, from everlasting. (Micah 5:2)
Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel (God is with us). (Isaiah 7:14)
Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the house of David. The Virgin’s name was Mary (Luke 1:26-27)
Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. (Luke1:30-31)
The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you: Therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son Of God. (Luke 1:35)
And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins. (Matthew 1:21)
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us. (John 1:14)
For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, laying in a manger. (Luke 2:11)
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. (John 3:16-17)

The Birthday Party

The Birthday Party
There was a celebrity and he was world famous and he threw a birthday party. He sent out and invitation to every person that he knew. His birthday was significant because everyone knew the year he was born, and everyone knew it was his birthday.
When people came to the birthday celebration the celebrity gave the most fantastic gifts that the world had ever seen, gifts that he purchased at great expense. Strangely, very few of the guests brought gifts for the birthday boy. Instead they gave abundant amounts of gifts to each other, and expected the other guests to give them gifts in return. Many of the guests even denounced the significance of the celebrity’s birthday in the celebration. The guests partied and ate food and had a good time and then all went home. When the party was over the celebrity found that many of his gifts that he intended for his guests were left behind and unopened.
This is a strange story of a strange birthday party to be sure, a party where the person whose birthday it is gives the gifts. A party where the one that is to be celebrated appears to be forgotten by the guests as they all give gifts to each other. Well this is the story of Christmas.
Christmas is the birthday party of the most well known celebrity of all time. And everyone knows the year He was born. Time has been split in two by the event of His birth (BC and AD). Many of us today have a day where we have a big party to mark his birth and we give each other gifts but few of us give Jesus anything of much of value. Some of us even question the significance of His birth at all in relation to the Christmas celebration. A recent poll done in England showed that 49 percent of people polled said that Jesus has no significance at all when it comes to the Christmas celebration. At the same time Jesus has invited all of mankind to come to His party, and has offered a gift that He purchased at great expense, and it cannot be returned to the store for a refund. But many of us have left it at the party unopened in an insulting refusal of His kindness and generosity. The gift is eternal life, companionship with the creator of heaven and earth, and forgiveness of all the mistakes we have ever made. Jesus said in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life”. It says whoever, and that means that everyone is invited to take this gift. The price that was paid for the gift was this. An eternal being of unimaginable stature, Jesus, came to earth and humbled Himself by becoming a human baby (completely dependent on his mother). Not born in a mansion or a castle or a five star resort or the finest hospital, but born in a place fit only for animals. Not born to a princess or a king but to an unassuming young girl with a carpenter for a husband. Born into the stigma of being conceived out of wedlock in a culture that frowned on it. And He lived a meek life as a carpenter’s son to then die a humiliating and painful death to buy this gift of everlasting life for all of us.
So what gifts should we bring to the party this year so that we don’t appear to be ungrateful guests at His birthday celebration? Nothing that we bring can come close to the gift he has already bought and paid for in our behalf. But on his wish list are two very simple things. The first one is that he wants us to just receive His gracious gift and wear it. Unlike the ugly tie, or the sweater that you sometimes get a Christmas that you never wear, Jesus has given you a gift that fits and should be worn with pride. The second thing that Jesus desires is to be available. Jesus just wants us to make ourselves available to be used by Him to birth something of value, just as Mary was available to be used by God to birth something of great value. All you have to do is say here I am Lord use me.

Elvis Alternate Christmas

Christmas time is full of people trying to capitalize on the birth of Jesus. And some of it gets pretty cheesy. Take a look at the cover for this one. Need I say more. But some of the alternate takes of Elvis are kind of fun to hear. Jesus has always sold and packaged and commercialized and so was Elvis so the two together is a perfect fit I guess.
