A sad day that Friday afternoon, when the LORD hung on the cross. With a written sign over him that said, “King of the Jews”. The thief next to him asked, “remember me when you come into your kingdom.” The Lord answered,” I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.” Luke 23: 43
Now what exactly happened between Friday and Sunday is a mystery that we will only know when we meet HIM in paradise. That day He will make known to us all the mysteries and wonders of His creation. For the first time we will know HIM as HE knows us. We will also have all the answer to the “whys” that keeps too many of us awake at night. Always hoping but never really knowing.
His promises to us, to wipe away all our tears, there will be no more pain or sorrow, no more broken hearts. Everything will be restored to perfection. All things will be made new. HE will restore us with our new heavenly body that will be indestructible. No longer will we have any more doubts, only eternal peace. We will be re-united with all that have ever lived that had placed their faith in HIM, the promise that the FATHER had made to Abraham. So when we wake up this Sunday morning let us all Rejoice, for HE is Risen!
