Evidence and Confirmation

Jesus Christ is “the King of kings and LORD of lords” (*1).  Whenever we say God, we totally mean and automatically refer to Jesus Christ who is “the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End” (*2).  Jesus Christ is the Creator of this world and we live based on His Kingship and according to His Majestic Sovereignty.

As King, Jesus Christ, our LORD, left His Kingdom in Heaven, took on human form (since we are created in His image and in His likeness) (*3).  He came down to Earth to restore humanity back to its kingdom status that was lost due to the original sin in the Garden of Eden.  Faithful to His reputation and consistent with His mission, Jesus Christ did exactly what He came down to Earth to do.  He went through the whole process of living as a man in a human body, from His birth in a manger to His death on the cross. On the third day following His death, He rose again (*4) by conquering death and the grave, and confirmed that He is, in fact, the indisputable Son of God, the Messiah that was prophesied about in Isaiah 53.

His resurrection is the evidence that His Care and His Love for humanity are far greater than anything the human mind could ever conceive.  His resurrection is also the confirmation of His Omnipotence and of His Deity. His death to pay the price for our sins, for our failures, “for our iniquities and for our transgressions” (Isaiah 53:5) does speak volume.  Our gratitude towards Him is to accept, to acknowledge, to appreciate, to cherish, to embrace, to nurture, to preserve, to receive, to treasure and to uphold that invaluable and priceless Gift of everlasting life (*5) that we have inherited from Him for Free.  Since Jesus hates sins (our human deeds) and loves sinners (all of us), there is absolutely no reason at all for one man to hate another human being.  This should not be justifiable.  Normally, in an absolutely-perfect world, the words hatred, envy, jealousy, covetousness and all their derivative and related cousins such as strife, backbiting, animosity, antagonizing, and so on, would never exist.  Jesus took care of all our turmoil when He died on the cross so that we may live in perfect peace among us and in mutual harmony with one another. And this is what we are commissioned to do, and this is what we are going to continue to do: to love one another as Jesus loves us, to live in harmony with one another, to do good at all times, to foster and to usher Peace as much and as often as possible.  In Isaiah 9:6 Jesus is also called the Prince of Peace.  Since we are followers of Jesus Christ, and as we are emulators of Jesus’ example, we must demonstrate it to the whole world so that the whole world may learn from us and begin to emulate on their own what we are practicing, i.e., Interactive Peace and Mutual Love.

The Peace we are talking about is a very special kind of Peace.  This is a Peace that comes from within based on our conviction, on our assurance and on our confirmation that, in fact, the Spirit of the LORD lives inside of us.  When we are water baptized and that the Spirit of the LORD comes inside of us, we are not the same person anymore.  Our body becomes the temple of the Living God (*6), we are transformed to His spiritual likeness and our lives witness, testify and reflect the Majestic Glory of Our God which we are carrying and displaying.  Once we are one with the LORD in Spirit by our unity with Him (*7), we are able to behave like elevated kings on Earth, because we are Royalty, and we are able to take care of our Father’s business with full maturity in making sure that all is in perfect order and well cared for, that lives in the Kingdom are preserved, treasured, appreciated and protected as per our calling, as per our responsibility, and as per our Father’s expectations.   God has bestowed upon us power and ability to take care of His business.  And we will have to “give an account of ourselves” (Romans 14:12), of how well we did, how productive and how constructive we were, how laboriously we occupied our time, how much care we have offered and provided to our fellow humans, how many lives we have improved, how much love we have shared, how much joy we have dispensed and given.

All this is possible based on how much we love our Father in Heaven, how close we are to the Creator of all things, how much intimate relationship we have with our LORD Jesus Christ, how attentive we are to God’s voice, how diligent we are in obeying God’s requests and in following His instructions, how serious and how obedient we are with respect to His commands.  There is no commandment greater than Love.  “Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength”.  “Love your neighbor as yourself (*8).  Since we love ourselves so much to the point where we will never harm ourselves, our own body, our own being, likewise we should promptly and spontaneously offer the same love to our neighbor with the same capacity, with the same measure, and with the same intensity.  Therefore, we must Respect others, we must Accept them as they are through Jesus’ eyes, we must Respect their existence and their lives, we must Protect them as part of our mandate, and we must Avoid Harming them at all costs, in whatever shape and form, and in conformity with Our Godly Nature.

Jesus said “If you love me, keep my commands” (John 14:15).  Jesus also stated:  “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them and they follow me” (John 10:27).  Jesus also added:  “I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen.  I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd” (John 10:16).

We shall be on guard, train ourselves, gird our hearts, master our thoughts, monitor our emotions to avoid falling at all costs in the trap of hatred (either initial or reciprocal)Those who hate impulsively for whatever reasons, those who envy out of jealousy, and those who covet with the desire to prey on the treasures, the possessions and the blessings of others (instead of creating, developing, generating and managing their own) have no peace at all.  They do not know God, they live without God in their lives, they live in mental and tormenting misery, they are empty on the inside, and they are desperately longing for and eagerly seeking God, our God Jesus Christ who is The Only God capable of coming into our lives through our obedient and yielding co-operation, and who is able to heal our hurts and our wounds, to fill our void with His indwelling through the Holy Spirit.  

Lost and Satan-manipulated people forgiven by Jesus while He was agonizing on the cross (“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing”) (Luke 23:34), empty, hungry and thirsty people that are living in multiple forms of darkness and cravings, should not have to suffer the pain and the affliction caused by emptiness, or due to the lack of knowledge, due to the shortage or the scarcity of the right information, and due to the lack of pure and comforting love.  That is why, as Jesus said to “Go, make disciples of all nations, baptizing (**) them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you” (*9), we are going wholeheartedly into the whole wide web and into the whole world sharing voluntarily the Love of Jesus Christ so that, through that Love that surpasses all understanding and that is without any comparison at all, suffering may cease, hatred may disappear, harmony may be fully established in our society and in the whole world.  

As we earnestly share the Love of Jesus Christ with others, and as, in their search and in their quest, people pray fervently to God asking Him for pure and convincing revelations of who He is, Jesus Christ will surely bring the Light to dispel their darkness, will reveal the Truth and the Life to fill their emptiness, and will show the Way that leads them to Eternal Life (*10).  As more and more people are convinced that Jesus Christ exists and is the Supreme Lord, hatred will vanish, peace will be instilled, lives will be transformed, divine love will be embraced, practiced, mutually shared, and inner emptiness will be replaced by the infilling and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.  The Persuasive Truth about the Lordship of Jesus Christ will then fill the Earth.

What humanity is eagerly and frantically seeking is immediately available, is within their reach, and is ready for them to accept and to embrace in due humility and in full ownership. That is why we will continue to do our job to spread the Comforting Love of Jesus Christ, to share Jesus’ Compassion “peacefully” with others, and to make sure that ALL are ready to inherit the Everlasting Life as it is promised in writing (*5).  As the Good Samaritan, out of compelling compassion, voluntarily offered his help to someone in need (*11), we will voluntarily continue to offer the Love of God to others indeed as it is expected of us (*12), and in a Friendly, Respectful and Peaceful Manner.  This will be the Evidence of which God we are following and serving, as this will also be the Confirmation that we are True Ambassadors of our Living LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ, the God of Peace, the God of Calmness and Stillness, the God of Peaceful and Meaningful Relationship, The God of Enlightening and Creativity, the God of Liberation, the God of Poise, the God of Pure Joy, the God of Resources and Riches, the God of Satiety, the God of Celebration, the God of Healing, the God of Forgiving Love, the God of Classic Nobility (*13), the God of Jubilee.
