He (Jesus) opened their minds to understand the Scriptures. Luke 24:45

Now you must repent and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, and so that the LORD may send the time of comfort. Then He will send you the Christ He has Predestined, that is Jesus, Whom heaven must keep till the Universal Restoration comes which God proclaimed, speaking through His holy prophets. Acts 3:19-21

 

‘This is what I meant when I said, while I was still with you, that everything written about Me in the Law of Moses, in the Prophets and in the Psalms, was destined to be fulfilled.’ He then opened their minds to understand the Scriptures, and He said to them, ‘So it is written that the Christ would suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that, in His Name, repentance for the forgiveness of sins would be preached to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses to this. Luke 24:44-48

 

Acts 3:11-26, Psalm 8 & Luke 24:35-48

 

Peter and John had just asked in the Name of Jesus Christ to heal a man who was begging for he was crippled since birth and had no other way of surviving except to beg as they said to him, “I have neither silver nor gold, but what I do have I give you: in the Name of Jesus Christ the Nazorean, [rise and] walk.” Then Peter took him by the right hand and raised him up, and immediately his feet and ankles grew strong. He leaped up, stood, and walked around, and went into the temple with them, walking and jumping and praising God.” Acts 3:6-8

 

As the crowd grew in the Temple area, they became amazed at what the Disciples had done by healing the man. Peter though became perturbed and filled with the Holy Spirit addressed them saying it wasn’t he who healed the man but it was the One who they had Crucified Who had to die for the sins of all humanity. He explained to them the need to repent and turn to the LORD to find true peace in the time of comfort. It is the exact peace and time of comfort you receive today when you earnestly repent and surrender your life to knowing the Truth in Jesus Christ.

 

Once you begin to find Christ in all you do, you find even in your Scripture reading things God will open up to you through the Holy Spirit that will enlighten you and fulfill your Will of God’s Predestined Plan for you. I find this everyday when I listen intently to His Spirit in my heart when I read the Bible in the early hours of each day. I have begun to understand why God brought His Only Son to live and die for you and me. I have felt the call of God to share every Spirit led thought I write in word and in poetry to fulfill the Will of God in my life lifting many of you to new heights of understanding how “He then opened their minds to understand the Scriptures.” Amen.

 

Dear LORD and God of all, we pray to listen to Your Spirit to understand the Scriptures so we too may be Disciples of Your Truth. Guide us LORD by Your Spirit to know Your Word to share Your Son’s Redemption. We pray for my children. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

Romans 8:28

Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

 

What was written of Christ to die for all- Luke 24:35-48

 

The Disciples told the Emmaus journey

How they recognized Him in the Bread so early

Out of nowhere He stood in their midst

Peace is with you Christ began to admit

 

Scared and startled was their reply

Don’t be afraid it is Me you can’t deny

Don’t let your hearts be ever be denied

Touch Me and see it My tears I cry

 

My hands and My feet are here in the flesh

They were joyous knowing God made Christ pass the test

As Jesus said He was hungry asking for some fish

Eating and reclining taking in some rest

 

All words I spoke have now come true

From the Law of Moses to each Prophets due

Jesus opened the Scriptures to their hearts of few

Gaining understanding and wisdom relished anew

 

What was written of Christ to die for all

Rise and walk after death’s Crucifixion stall

Repenting and knowing forgiveness of sins

Preach to all the nations for Eternal Life to win

 

Each of you is my witnesses from beginning to end

About Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

My name is Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins. I first recognize Christ as my Savior in all things. I am married to my best friend and Soul-Mate in Christ, Antonia Cruz-Wiggins. I am a University of Florida graduate of Public Relations, a US Navy Veteran and a Montessori Elementary School Teacher. I love life and God's help of living it! I follow the Light of Christ in everything I do! I love writing poetry about the Lord and I create a new poem from each Scripture I discern in my daily mediations. You can almost follow the poem by looking at the readings for each day. I started sharing this small yet personal scripture study four years ago when one day I was reading the bible and the Holy Spirit moved me to share the verse with a group of about 40 Christian Men in my Emmaus Ministry who get together weekly to celebrate the Lord and talk about His Truth. Since then the number of people I share my study with has grown to over 650. I enjoy an open loving dialog about anything I write and I have strived to write what I know the Lord wants me to share steering clear of offending anyone’s spiritual beliefs because I share my work with people I meet in public when I strike up a conversation about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It took almost 2 years to begin writing what the Holy Spirit leads me to say. I believe that all Christians must unite as One Body of Christ’s Love to accomplish the joy of living with love, honor and respect. I reach out to Humanity to share His Salvation be it Baptist, Catholic, Protestant, Episcopal or any other religion or belief. I seek to mirror His Compassion, His Simpleness, His Charity and His Love. While I am Catholic, I believe we must all unite in the Lord to become One Body in Christ to bring our children back to The Church. I am humbled to share my study with you. Please feel free to comment any time. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is my Joy because I am a Disciple of His Truth. I am honored to share my Bible study with anyone you may recommend. As always, I remain, Yours in Christ, Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins
