Wig’s Word of God Today 4-8-2012 He is Risen. He is Risen Indeed!
They killed Him by hanging Him on a tree, yet on the third day God raised Him to Life and allowed Him to be seen. Acts 10:39b-40
Since you have been raised up to be with Christ, you must look for the things that are above, where Christ is, sitting at God’s right hand. When Christ is revealed — and He is your Life- you, too, will be revealed with Him in glory. Colossians 3:1,4
(The Disciple) saw and he believed. Till this moment they had still not understood the Scripture, that He must Rise from the dead. John 20:8b-9
Acts 10:34, 37-43, Psalm 118, Colossians 3:1-4 & John 20:1-9
The disciple running ahead of Peter proved something we all need to find when we begin celebrating Easter as the Day of Resurrection; the faces of Christ in a Risen LORD who are the poorest of the poor, sickest of the sick and the hungriest of the hungry. We must envision the Face of Christ on each of them as a proactive choice of charity not being afraid of human opinion but rectifying oneself to His Purpose for His Will.
The Redeemer of the world has Risen for hanging Him on a tree did not prohibit God’s Design of Forgiveness of sins- it fulfilled it. When they brought Him down from the tree, they brought down the sins of the world that has been laundered by the Blood of Jesus. Your sins, my sins, have been forever erased from God’s Own Heart giving us reason to live in His faith, His hope and His love.
God granted humanity its wish: showing Himself after His Risen fulfillment of all the Scriptures raising us up with Him in Glory before the Father. When “He is your Life- you, too, will be revealed with Him in glory.” Just as the Disciple, you too will see and believe Christ is in every dirty foot you see in an un-bathed hungry homeless man who is a brother, an uncle- a dad.
When you immerse yourself in the serving the poorest of the poor, then you begin to see the Good News in the hearts and souls of these desperate faces of humanity allowing you to understand the Scripture more fully. Most importantly, you begin to act for the Glory of God bringing you to see and believe in each frown, each frightful look and each desperate smile of a man or woman who needs your hug as much as they need your source of life in nourishment in food and the Word of God.
Today is the Day of Resurrection. Jesus Christ has Risen today, He has Risen indeed for you to know His forgiveness, for you to know His charity and to live in His love. Seek His Risen Face in the people who need Him most and live His Will for your life. The battle cry of Truth: Jesus Christ is Risen. He is Risen Indeed! Amen.
Dear Holy Father of all, we pray to see Your Risen Son in every person we share His charity with. We pray for a homeless man named Billy who cannot afford his medication and dialysis. We pray the world will always know Your Risen Son’s love and forgiveness this beautiful Easter Day. God Bless to my Co-Teacher Venecia Mackens on her birthday today. We pray for my children. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
God Bless His Truth for America,

“Spirit led God inspired Christ fed”
Jesus Christ is Risen- He is Risen indeed!
On a tree with driven nails
Did our sins forever fail
As He was seen as Pristine
When He was Risen Baptized clean
You too are raised in Him
Now seeking what is above
As Christ reveals you to the Father
As He reveals you to His Eternal Love
Then you will see Him in everyone
Not a soul for you to overlook or shun
Seeing and believing in God’s Only Seed
For Jesus Christ is Risen- He is Risen indeed!
