Easter Affirmations     April 14, 2022

Well, first, Easter begins with the, as we say, ‘Coming of Jesus Christ’. ‘Coming’ in general means that which approaches and/or arrives and in Life most often means the advancement or progression toward a coalescing of Spiritual or Mindful things which bring an understanding or knowledge of good, of God, and the Way of Humanity and Self. It is a nourishment for the Soul. And often brings much comfort to the reconciliation or reckoning of our death or passing.

The Coming of Jesus Christ brought us good and a greater understanding of the Ways of Life which strengthens our Spirits in Life and nourishes and consoles our Souls in preparation of the reckoning of the good and evil in that Life upon death. And so it is with Humanity as a whole here on Earth.

Often thought of and talked about separately, but, in my opinion, should not be, is the Rising and Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

The Rising of Christ is the affirmation or confirmation of heaven and a renewal of Life and it’s cycles and it’s complexity. And death does not bring an end to the Spirit or Soul but only that which lives on Earth. The Soul or core Being being that which reckons with God before entering the afterlife or lives of heaven or hell. As Spirit and Soul must be nourished on Earth by actions and thoughts of good to enter or proceed to Heaven and not Hell so it is the Way and Path to bring about Heaven on Earth.

The celebration of Resurrection also brought about by the people is similar in meaning to Jesus’ rising but indicates a return or Second Coming of God’s representative and provides confirmation of God. The Resurrection brought about a great surge in the belief and works of God by people here on Earth. Second Coming preparations include war with Ill Willed and it rises and falls or ebbs and flows over time as a result of Ill Willed action(s) and the good instilled in the righteous using destructive measures carefully, cautiously, judiciously, and with good judgement.

The Ordeal of Jesus’ crucifixion brought about knowledge of the requirement or need for humanities sacrifice to bring about God’s Kingdom. Sacrifices of or with moral standard.

Churches and religions since the Resurrection have remained as teachers and providers of social equality and justice while working around and/or along side governments who will enter battle unto God and good. The United States of America put this idea of separation of church and state while a nation under God in her Constitution as an ammendment while working to provide liberty and justice for all. It is her doctrine. They also formed a National Guard to battle within. Those good who enter government in America quickly, in my opinion, realize and understand the rewards of this work. And the battle within and without.

As I do with the rest of the World, I believe that God had His Hand in the creation of America’s government and still does for the making of His Kingdom. So citizens must move governments all over the World to battle for their freedom which is what is occurring on Earth. But the battle and movement is actually for the Coming of God’s Kingdom here on Earth, under Justice. One of our greatest efforts of the past marking this movement and moving the World toward liberty and justice is the King James Bible.

And at this time we again bestow upon our children gifts of renewal, growth, and development or progress and beauty. We bring to them promises of God as we understand them and Heaven on Earth.

Easter 2021

Easter 2021     April 3, 2021

Easter, to me, is really about celebrating the coming together of three of our largest religions, Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. Christianity, Jesus, bringing many ‘European religions’ and folklores together or closer together, and bringing Judaism and Islam closer together with this new European/Mediterranean/Middle East religion, Christianity. In fact the annual period of celebration of Easter dates back even further than Jesus, to Moses and the Passover of the Angel of Death or Dark Angel and even further to Shavuot (Pentecost) coinciding with the barley or wheat harvest and Sukkot (Temples or Tents) which included pilgrimages and festivities with Priests.

The Passover may have originated as a rite of magic by God, intended to turn away harm or evil influences and became the ninth of ten plagues, Angel of Death, of Moses. Afterwards hyssop (oregano) was used to daub the blood of sheep on lintels and door posts to celebrate Passover. In my opinion, it is a warning of the Dark Angel and it’s influence on those who wish to do Israelites harm. Even further back in time, during the same time of year but before Passover, agricultural festivals, the Mesopotamian (Babylonian and Assyrian) Akita festival celebrated the sowing of barley and Canaanite celebrated the barley harvest using unleavened bread.

The period of Easter celebration includes several theologies, mythologies, religions, and agricultural celebrations prior to the life of Jesus. And Jesus himself celebrated this period of time with the Last Supper and unleavened bread before his crucifixion being charged for claiming to be King of the Jews by the Roman Empire. I believe the Romans intentionally timed and planned to put down Israelites and perhaps all other religions, mythologies, and theologies of the region by crucifying Jesus. I have read that the Torah says the Israelites had to leave Egypt so quickly that they could not wait for their bread to rise. So unleavened bread remains a reminder of this.

The disappearance of Jesus’ body must have been a shock to Romans in 30 AD but Christianity could not be sustained until the regions’ economy and currency(ies) was free from fraud and theft. The natural decline of the irresponsible Roman Empire and a new Emperor, Constantine, in the 4th century AD helped to increase much of humanities work towards God’s Kingdom. I do not know if God took Jesus’ body or his followers removed it for themselves’ and Jesus’ sake of heart. Never the less, He rests with God. And I believe often our beliefs in the power and ways of God and/or people who do His work spreads and prevails in our physical World.

The word Christ appears to be predated by the word Messiah in literature and originates in Greece.  Messiahs, saviors or liberators, are usually described as anointed by God. On Earth, scented oils are used to anoint people and were and are used to introduce a divine influence or presence. It is an act of hospitality, and a form of medicine to reduce disease caused by demons and dangerous spirits. Abrahamic religions which include our three major religions of Jews, Muslims, and Christians, all except the life of Messiahs predating Jesus and Christianity and helped establish religions and theologies and increased the acceptance of God and Jesus and more of His people. Abraham’s legacy relates to birthright and/or inheritance, posterity, of land for all people. I believe this is why it remains in these three major religions particularly in this region of the World and in fact serves to identify them above the beliefs and rituals of their own religion, an authority. Abraham was not considered a Messiah but a patriarch.

These three major religions originating in the Middle East share much history, traditions/customs/rituals, theology, and divine people. They share ideals of the patriarch  Abraham concerning land and inheritance. I believe that good people of these religions and region(s) and now others can come together with the help of the World and pursue the spirit of their theologies or beliefs and help bring about the prophecies of their Messiahs even more.

And another Christian fairytale from Germany. This time a bunny rabbit handing out chicken eggs. Both a representation of fertility and regeneration of the beauty of time. And celebrating with feasts and giving of gifts particularly to children. Eggs are often colored and flowers included.
