Everyone Wants Jesus Dead

April 02, 2010 – Comments (42) | RELATED TICKERS: GOOD , FRI , DY

Two thousand years back into time - in a conquered dusty spit of land, that has been under the control of Babylonians and Assyrians, then overrun by the Greeks with their culture and language, and now troddened under the oppressive iron rule of Pax Romana - at the physical crossroads of known humanity (Europe, Africa and Asia) - there is Jesus, the little suckling infant of two poor teenage parents, in a stall's feeding trough with barnyard animals milling about.

He grows as the young lad, separated from his parents during his first visit to the City of Jerusalem, with its tall-pillared stone temple, and seated among the wise men who usually spend their time pontificating on weighty matters now listening intently to the boy who speaks so authoritatively.

He matures into the carpenter-turned-itinerant preacher with a dozen followers wandering through the countryside making pronouncements that are novel and strange to Jews and Samaritans.

He becomes the piece of meat, whipped and beaten to the edge of death, face disfigured beyond recognition, dragging His own crucifixion cross towards the garbage dump beyond the town walls where He will be hung exposed, shamed, tortured, impaled with a Roman spear, ridiculed, and suffocating.

Everyone wants Jesus to die (except a handful of followers, who misunderstood Him).

 + The Romans saw Jesus’ death as the end of a deranged nuisance in an outlying territory.

 + Jewish religious leaders considered Jesus’ death as the comeuppance of a rival and cult.

 + Satan viewed Jesus’ death as a solution to prevent fulfillment of Old Testament prophecies.

 + God proscribed Jesus’ death as the required sacrifice for yours and my God-belittling sinful treason against God, and as God’s substitutionary provision for Jesus to bear our punishment.

 + Jesus recognized His own death as the completion of a fully-lived totally-perfect human life, which God credits to each of us who will relinquish and renounce everything of this world in order to love, trust and obey Jesus Christ as our Lord (Master) and Savior.

Jesus ressurrects back to life on Easter Sunday, and the sovereign Jesus Christ is now sitting at the right hand of Almighty God, having completed His redemption for all who would call upon His name and who would place their entire trust upon Him and His promises.

This is THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, the God Almighty
He is the First and Last, the Beginning and the End.
He is the keeper of Creation and the Creator of all!
He is the Architect of the universe and
The Manager of all times.
He always was, He always is, and He always will be . . .
Unmoved, Unchanged, Undefeated, and never Undone.
He was bruised and brought healing.
He was pierced and eased pain.
He was persecuted and brought freedom.
He was dead and brought life.
He is risen and brings power.
He reigns and brings Peace.
The world can't understand Him,
The armies can't defeat Him,
The schools can't explain Him,
The leaders can't ignore Him.
Herod couldn't kill Him,
The Pharisees couldn't confuse Him, and
The people couldn't constrain Him.

Nero couldn't crush Him,
Hitler couldn't silence Him,
The New Age can't replace Him, and
Scientists cannot explain Him away.
He is light, love, longevity, and Lord.
He is goodness, Kindness, Gentleness, and God.
He is Holy, Righteous, mighty, powerful, and pure.
His ways are right,
His Word is eternal,
His will is unchanging, and
His mind is on you and me.
He is my Redeemer,
He is my Savior,
He is my guide, and
He is my peace.
He is my Joy,
He is my comfort,
He is my Lord, and
He rules my life.

I serve Him because His bond is love,
His burden is light, and
His goal for me is abundant life.
I follow Him because He is the wisdom of the wise,
The power of the powerful,
The ancient of days, the ruler of rulers,
The leader of leaders, the overseer of the overcomers, and
The sovereign Lord of all that was and is and is to come.
And if that seems impressive to you, try this for size.
He desires a personal relationship with you and me! 

He will never leave me,
Never forsake me,
Never mislead me,
Never forget me,
Never overlook me, and
Never cancel my appointment in His appointment book.
When I fall, He lifts me up!
When I fail, He forgives!
When I am weak, He is strong!
When I am lost, He is the way!
When I am afraid, He is my courage!
When I stumble, He steadies me!
When I am hurt, He heals me!
When I am broken, He mends me!
When I am blind, He leads me!
When I am hungry, He feeds me!
When I face trials, He is with me!
When I face persecution, He shields me!
When I face problems, He comforts me!
When I face loss, He provides for me!
When I face Death, He carries me Home!

He is everything everybody needs; everywhere,
Every time, and every way.
He is God, He is faithful.
I am His, and He is mine!
My Father in heaven can whip the "father" of this world. 

So, if you're wondering why I feel so secure, understand this . . .
Jesus said it and that settles it.
God is in control, I am on His side, and
That means all is well with my soul.
Everyday is Easter Day,
Reminding me that He is Emmanuel which means "God is with us" and
A blessing because Jesus Christ lives!

John 10:10

"I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly"

I must say that God has given me abundant life. As I look back over the years, little did I understand 16 years ago when I was saved how meaningful this verse would become. Over the years little by little my faith has grown and my doubt has melted away praise God.

Really? I find this a bit hard to believe seeing as Jesus was a rabbi, and a very well liked one, who held nearly identical practices (including having followers) to many other rebbies during the time. Do you have proof of this from a secular source?

And 90% of every war fought since he was born was a result of his birth ( or secular battles within different religions ). I will believe that there was a person in history named Jesus, just as there was a man named Mohamhed and Buda. What I dont believe is that any of them had a dirrect lifeline to anyone or any thing known as "god". What proof is there that "that" "god" is anymore real than Zues, Appollo, etc... except in some book that was written 200 years after his death?

I think I'll start posting blogs on fly fishing, backpacking, old BMWs, and whatever else happens to interest me on the website. I mean why not? In fact, let's clutter this blog space up with as much totally unrelated chatter as possible. If someone, personally, feels that whatever topic THEY decide is appropriate, well, by gosh, let's post THAT.

Oh, and how about this; if you happen to have a spiritual conviction that you should post it here, then you can ALSO claim some sort of moral high ground that everyone should accept because, afterall, you personally have a spiritual conviction that it's ok to do so. Oh, and how about this; combine your personal spiritual and moral beliefs with your political beliefs, and slather the website with that too. Or has that already been done?

Now this MAY seem like a slippery slope because if you can do whatever the heck you want because you believe that your god wants you to do that, that certainly opens up doors on what qualifies as acceptable behavior. 

So, I encourage EVERYONE to post WHATEVER blog they want right here. If the thousands of us posted just a couple of blogs every month on something completely unrelated to investing, then we could essentially make this an investment blog space in name only.

Alternatively, and I know this is sort of "out there", but people could, conceivably, exercise a little....I don't know....COMMON SENSE.....and post unrelated blogs to appropriate places. Or in some cases, such as THIS one.....hang on because this really wild....express this in church. You see, that's precisely where this sort of discussion belongs; a church. Amazing, right? That there is a place where you are actually expected to express such thoughts.

do you have any proof, or just cynisism? Politically it would be advantageous to embrace him.

 

Michael,

I would tend to agree with you. Bravo reminds me of a guy who keeps leaving me notes that just happen to be written on the back of church schedules. This is a rather nasty conversion tactic.  Not to mention a waste of space(although I am not entirely innocent of the latter).

If God was going to do something to 'save us' from 'whatever' you would think he might have chosen something that made a little sense. I cannot see any point to sacrificing your son, or having him be reborn, etc. Making man sinful, only to sacrifice your son, to save only those who believe is the most confounded list of things that just don't belong in the same story, no less make any sense as individual working theories.

And what in the hell do bunnies have to do with colored eggs have to do with the resurrection of Jesus? 

Happy Easter!

I'm an open minded person. First couple sentences made me think you might have been heading towards a point. Same with the title.

... But nope. It's just pushing your religion.

In an empty, materialistic world we are told that Jesus can fill us. But by in large Christianity is also empty. We are told to forgive everything. And then about how are wicked sinners. What is forgiveness? Why would god create something he despises?

Christianity? Yeah. It's part of the culture of emptiness. Teaches you to hate yourself and listen to your "betters". If Jesus ever had a message it's long since been lost. 

I'm short on Christianity. In the long run it's not a safe investment. World wide education is increasing. People are becoming more self aware.

Invest in yourself. You are more reliable than god, and you stand to make better returns.

For those who believe, no proof is necessary, for those who don't, none is enough. 

That's why it's called Faith.

Thanks be to GOD for the convicting power of the Holy Spirit. Be still and listen.

Too bad you can't share an epiphany, then no argument would be needed.

WTF? The only wasted space here is the idiotic comments left by those wasting space. If you don not like this post DON'T READ IT, if you read it and write against it then YOU and YOU alone have wasted space. Lord knows, I haven't lived the most Christian life style, but I still believe and going through a long changing/understanding process. But people, grow up, you throw stone at a person who you say wasted space, but yet aren't you filling all the space? Relax, maybe some of us want to read a blog (which btw IS a persons rant basically) and enjoy it on Easter Sunday. Maybe it is you people that are a waste of space! Anyway, thank you, for the blog Bravo. And to everyone else, remember it is easier to fit a camel through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter Heaven. And to you non-believers remember...Jesus Loves You Too!!!!

Happy Easter to Everyone!

Hey IMlraqable: I like that; a Christian who starts his blog with WTF. That's rich. Very Christian of you. And how do you know I'm not a believer? Isn't it a sin to judge me like that? And on Easter! I haven't seen such sin all weekend! I'm aghast that heathens like you even exist! Right now, I am holding up a crucifix at your comment, hoping to ward off the evil it is radiating.

It's not about a belief system; thank you for completely missing the point. It's about plastering the website with even more unrelated stuff.

True enough, and obvious to the point of being a simplistic and banal comment, which is clearly all we can expect from you; we don't have to click and read. And trust me, I didn't do much reading. BUT, and see if you can wrap you mind around this concept (focus, now), if we all feel free to post every unrelated thing, then what we have is a ton of blogs that have nothing to do with investment. We have to wade through everything from religious missives to shoe salesman pitches. And whose to say one is more valid than the other? It's blogging on crack, and yes, I'm tired of it. Particularly when the blogger feels they have some spiritual exception allowing them to do so.

By the way; we don't care that you're "going through a long changing/understanding process". Save it for the shrink. Not appropriate here.

Hey Michael,

First off, I love the way your post starts, very funny, really. I like humor.

Second, I never claimed to be a good Christian, just one that believes, so that would mute your rant.

The title was clearly not investment related, so for you to put your post up means you purposley read and commented, on a subject, you claim you can't stand to read on an investment website.

Furthermore, your constant attacks directed to me proves that your a typical fat, bald angry man with small parts that acts tough, from behind a computer. I don't care what you care about and again, your spending alot of time reading and posting, on a blog you claim you don't want any part of. I am sorry your such an unhappy man that you sit around attacking people to fulfill some sort of short comings. So as to the point of your crucifix being held up to me, shove it up...well where your brains obviously are....and God Bless!

IMIraqable: I like humor too, and your post also made me grin because I'm just visualizing your description of me versus, me. It's pretty funny, really. But I digress.

Your third paragraph is incomplete, so I really don't even know what your thought was.

My "constant attacks" amounted to one comment, though I guess now I'm up to two comments. Perhaps I've moved from "constant" to...what?...."never ending"? I don't even want to know how you'll describe me if I have to make a third comment. Please, let's not go there!

And so now you go an make fun of fat people! Well, happy Easter everybody. Unless you're fat. I don't think that's very nice. And bald people! Jeez, what do you have against bald people!? You don't seem like a very nice Christian. In fact, you seem like a mean Christian. Happy Easter Unless You're Short, Fat, Balding, and Not....You...With Large Parts? I have NOT seen that on a Hallmark card, ever!

I didn't really think I was acting tough. Was I acting tough? I never did my Robert DiNiro, "You talking to me??" thing did I?

And the crucifix suggestion, definitely not a Christian thing to do, and it would give me a headache...oh, wait...you were suggesting...oh, that's just gross. Oh, very disturbing. You have a sick mind. 

Anyway, it's been fun.

It is Easter and in keeping with that, I have enjoyed our back and forth. I would hope one day we can share a beer and discuss the world around us and more. We might not agree, but we could have alot of fun!!!

And, I guess, Happy Easter to the fat, Balding and phallically challenged, too!!!!

And don't ever forget that global democracy is something to keep in the back of your mind to strategize the most efficient and RIGHT way to do it...

I'm sure China (or Asia or India) wants to take American investors money for their gain (see SPAM), but find an innovative ORIGINAL and intelligent, strategic, measured, calculated approach rather than SPAM (c'mon guys...we see whats going on here') ...  

This is simply a spam post that destroys credibility in a way that helps the US by undercutting Asia's lack of marketing expertise. Or is it..only if you know how to filter out the BS and input/retain the important stuff and draw the correlations (and nothing about these spams is important unless you are looking for knockoff 'fashionable' cheap stuff..but on an investing site???. <- I'm not supporting this behaviour...it is bad for the US if you buy into to ... always remember, knowledge is power ... and those with knowledge have the power, so they learn to most effectively learn how to filter and shut down counter-productive strategies for the good of the global SYNERGISTIC marketplace, local, domestic, and global...

It's game on US and the talent TALENT is here to bring people together in a synergistic way with a copyrighted 2010 solution to start for (copyrighted / protected) moving FORWARD  and to move forward think about THIS... in fact, check out THIS TOO...

Just in case you didn't know, Forbes put out a book 'How Capitalism will save Anerica' in March ... I wrote 'Ideals of a Capitalist' in 12'09 (have timestamp) and copyrighted it third week of Januray (the 18th I think) -- never read his book ... but I am curious to those who did read it as to if there is some greater insights and ultimate practical way to make it happen AND if the ultimate message I get across is something that anyone can read in the one page I did it with --- only want objective opions (AND NO MORE SPAM!!!) ---

Competition - like basketball, bout to watch Duke - then get in on America (regardless if ya aren't rooting for Duke)

BUT... 

**Disclosure: I am NON-PROFIT (and need to work NOW toward something BIG or with the ability and desire to want to be BIG) but literally just had my mother rescind her offer of an undisclosed cash amount..I have lots of student loans, and (financially) poor PARENTS (didn't use to be...one of those told you so moments).

I need that one missing piece of the puzzle to fully become the iconic CASHKID instead of dabbling here and there - 'little bit of this, little bit of that' -> WRONG 'lot of this, lot of that', BEST at that !!!  But in terms of financial mkts...I've got that handled and always will :>

SO...until then I'll just keep on filtering the BS and retain everything useful...haha, and I suggest everyone heed this advice, as it is an issue that WILL be addressed 00 mark the works of the artist formally known as cashkid79, haahaaa ...

Let's all shut up now, make some money, then do good for the world...that's what God wants - and NOONE on CAPS comes close to the insignts and understanding of the world or the markets or the BIG PICTURE OF IT ALL better than him.  PEACE !!!  All the best are guided by God in my beliefs (OR find loopholes to exploit, of which I see many -- thank God I am eithical with the background I have!!! and have learned from some of the foremost experts = professional day traders, wall street traders, the Gardner brothers (ideas), hedge fund managers, businessman of the year south FL, economists (dept heads), many, many, PhDs, doctors, psychiatrists (to LEARN, not be treated --- interesting combination, but they were mostly and, well, ambiguous, but mutually beneficial realtionships, i.e., I had stuff to offer them that was valubale as well) ...

I already KNOW how to make a killing in the market...and It's something to do on the side to help others the way I see it...I have multiple skills - marketing, IT, virtualization technology, sales, management, communications (written/spoken), stragic power plays, M&A aptitude (comes back around to strategy)...bust most importantly...all these correlations and consistent stream of (filtered) knowledge I am ALWAYS hungry for real-time combined with my natural brain chemistry is something up and coming...I've overcome so many adversities in my life...I already know what is coming to me :>

It's exciting... and CAPS has been a GREAT tool and the memebers so helpful with insights here and there...I will give back...

Now, how does someone w/ such limited short-term immediate resources (relative of course) not understand it takes money to make money...to start, I'm quixotic and somewhat detached because I run five data streams in my head at a time and it's like a sponge, but also, because that's the easy way to do it...I'm doing it the innovative way and BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER along the way...

Here's to prosperity and 2010 being a perfect 10...and again, Bravo, Bravo :>

Of course the Son of God is related to EVERYTHING, including investing, since EVERYTHING that is consists by HIS will. HE is the glue that holds EVERYTHING that is together and causes it to exist.

I have a question for all the "prove-thisers". What weak, little, temporary tool (including our brains) are we supposed to use to prove the ETERNAL?

I like BravoBevo's wisdom and insights here, and it is totally applicable to my investing.  A proper understanding of the sovereignty of God will affect the daily decisions I make and what stocks I pick along with what trust I place in the riches I emass.  At the very least, it gets others to think outside of their own wealth for a moment (which is a good thing).

Keep on Bravo!!

Once again, bravo wastes everyones time.

Frankly if a person goes to Hell for not believing in God, then I would like to go there too.  Many of the worlds most inspirational and genuinely good people will be in Hell.  In fact, if this is the case then it appears the the Devil is an accepting individual where God is petty and closed minded.

Also, I'm sure all of those babies and young children who die before ever hearing of 'The Bible' will need some day care service down in the fiery below.  I think I could be of service there.

He is everything everybody needs; everywhere,
Every time, and every way.
He is God, He is faithful.
I am His, and He is mine!
My Father in heaven can whip the "father" of this world.

             If everyone can remember this and apply it to their lives imagine what the world would be like.No one would steal anything because God would provide. Everbody would be faithfully serving the Lord. Keep up the good work bravo I enjoy reading it. Happy Easter!

Bravo

When I return to CAPS after an absence, I check a few very special CAPS members.  Your Easter posts are always on my short list.

To those who do not believe in Jesus, who do not believe that God hears and answers prayers, that is your choice.  I prefer to live in the comfort of knowing that there is One greater than myself who loves me, hears my prayers, and answers them.  Recently, my son-in-law responded with his SWAT unit to a call regarding a shooter who was barracaded in a house.  My son-in-law was between the shooter and the SWAT officer that was shot (artery),  I see two miracles here.  The first was a "bending" (?) bullet, because I should be minus one family member right now.  There is no way the shooter could have missed at that distance...but he did.  The second miracle is my son-in-law who is also an EMT being beside the friend who was shot.  The only way that the fallen SWAT member survived was by having an EMT right in front of him who dropped out of SWAT mode and into life-saving mode.  

But then, I cannot prove angels, God, Jesus, or miracles, so to some, they just must not exist.  There is no advice that can be printed here that is more important than the decision that provides eternal life.  Do not read if you do not want to, but thank BB for giving you the information and option. 

I am a poor Christian if only because I do not live my faith as fully and completely as I am able.  Your posts are always good.  This one is exceptional.  There is nothing to say beyond

AMEN  and Thank You
