GOOD FRIDAY : A SOLEMN OCCASION TO REMEMBER

LORD JESUS CHRIST

GOOD FRIDAY : A SOLMN OCCASION TO REMEMBER



Good Friday is a day to reminisce
And become conscious of our follies
For those who’ve firm belief
In the teachings of Lord Jesus Christ
The preaching which enriches the humans of all hues
Thus making our life awe-inspiring.

It is the holiest of all days put together
A day which we recollect every year
When our beloved one offered himself on the cross
Without even a slightest emotional upsurge
To uphold truth bereft of any ill will towards those responsible.

We term this day as Good Friday
A day of huge reckoning for the humanity
Whence our heart aches limitlessly
With sadness writ large on the faces of gentry
All those who hath knowledge about this Friday.

This solemn day is observed as an anniversary
Whence Jesus Christ – the most revered One
Left his corporal body from this earth
To the abode of the Supreme Spirit.

Prayers with fasting is observed on this day
On this particular day we reminisce this Friday
While purity of this day remains etched in hearts
Of all those who know that he died for us all.

In His lifetime this Messenger of Holy Spirit
Was most virtuous and compassionate
And overly serene whilst meeting his own end in flesh and blood
At the hands of those who did not know what they were up to
Just ignorant lots
Underwent crucification and final surrender to the Lord
On this day – a solemn one at that.

Even then he sought forgiveness for his perpetrators – the heartless ones
And the sinful ones at the helm responsible for his crucification!

With final and eternal utterance, he forgave them for their ignorance
‘Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do’.

Such words surcharged with compassion are rarest of rare – ever heard
Which could only be from the heart of one who is the dearest son
Of the Omnipotent and Omniscient One – the most compassionate One.

A lesson to us humans, a most credible one
So merciful he was even to the irreligious ungodly lots
Drunk they were with power and pelf along with ego overflowing
A temporary phenomenon for us earthlings.

Such empathy is a key to Christ Consciousness
Suffering for us – relentless pain with a lot of humiliation
A death so holy – indeed for our redemption
Such supreme sacrifice is an instrument of compensation
Which strikes at the tender chords of our heart, so palpable realization
That the Messengers of God cannot remain in void for so long.

Hence end of that life span, followed resurrection
Thus stunning the general masses at large by his revivification
Methods may different in observation
Yet the sacredness of Good Friday for ever remains
The devout kneel with utmost reference
Before the Wooden Cross kept in Churches, so holy on this day.

Thence last words of Lord Christ are also repeated
‘Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do’.

So that those solemn words may remain imprinted in our recollection
Thence a symbolic burial of the Lord is undertaken
For which difference could be in method
But the inner most emotions are obviously very touching
For our beloved Jesus Christ
Who for Truth’s sake gave His own life form
So that we humans are absolved of our sins
Which a true son of God can only make it happen.

Factually dark spot on the anal of history is the crucification
Thence Easter is the bright spot in the form of resurrection
Whence the Star shined with a greater vigor in form and manifestation
Opening new pathways for our association
With Lord Jesus christ in His resurrection.


GOOD FRIDAY – A SOLEMN OCCASION TO REMEMBER


Essentially, history is reveals us of several examples and witness to the fact that various incarnations of our Creator had to endure trials and tribulations in their real life time while living on this earth. People who opposed their ideas and ideals always opposed them tooth and nail because these God’s Incarnations were the messengers of peace and their mission was to spread the ETERNAL TRUTH and remove the specter of ignorance from our midst.


The Messengers of our God also helped in removal of evil that prevailed in the society at that time. They preached the dictum: ‘Bless them that curse you.’ They presented a living example for us humans to see how best they withstood onslaughts of those who opposed the very ideals which with divergent viewpoints – departure from their pseudo and outdated beliefs. They had to withstand the wraths of egocentric power hungry people.


While reforming the masses and showing them the true path, the messenger of our God Jesus Christ faced several hurdles from those who opposed his ideas. The other incarnations like Lord Krishna, Lord Rama, Prophet Mohammad faced similar hurdles at every step but with their foresight and fortitude these Apostles of Peace challenged the old and hackneyed mores of behavior and came out unscathed ultimately.


Surprisingly, after their earthy sojourns, they were accepted as the Messengers of God by the very people who opposed them in the first instance and remain giving their respectful place even now. This is the tragedy of humans that we do not recognize our God’s Messengers/Incarnations while they were on this planet like us humans but when they are no longer with us then we take them as their revered ones and worship them for their preaching! This is a travesty of fact with our humans. I term this as the weakness in the egoist mindset people.


Lord Jesus Christ is one such example amongst others. These Messengers of Peace fought for the common people and were able to rid the society of the evil doers and challenged the very philosophies of people at the helm of affairs during the periods on this earth. In that process these Sons of God had to face opposition. People who mattered suspected these God’s messengers because their ideals were counter to their (powerful opponents) own and in upholding these they (Sons of God) had to face umpteenth difficulties

During the life time Jesus Christ did everything to rid the then society of the evils prevalent and wanted to change the outlook of the people.


Although Jesus Christ suffered humiliation and immense pain at the hands of his tormentors yet he felt sympathy even for his tormentors while he agonized on the cross for us all. We should never forget that He suffered so that we are redeemed of our sins that we as humans do commit. There were disturbances and upheavals after he gave up his spirit.


Crucification of Jesus Christ gave a new meaning of life to us humans to follow. His ideals and preaching are held dear by us all and will remain so till eternity. May this Day remain etched in our memory as the day of redemption of humanity and He remains a beacon of light for all of us on this earth.

JESUS CHRIST’S HEALING TOUCH


In essence it is said that there is always a light after the darkness. Jesus used to heal the physical ills of masses, he wanted their highest good while he was in flesh and blood like us. But the insensitive people just crucified him! This is also a fact that he had the power to escape being crucified but he did not do so. And even in agony he said: ‘Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.’ That is why He had to come back again for our happiness and for our purification. This purification is attained only when we’ve conquered our weaknesses in the form of our ego etc.


CRUCIFICATION A DARK BLOT


If crufication was a dark blot on those who crucified Jesus, the Easter is commemorated as a symbol of resurrection. Easter celebration has a historic perspective. It also symbolizes rebirth; a pious day that is why devotees decorate their houses, rejoice, mass prayers are conducted in Churches. It is a celebration in connection with the rising of Christ – the Son of God. Easter also opens doors for a holy association with God through Jesus Christ.


MESSENGERS OF GOT ALWAYS SPREAD GOODNESS IN THE SOCIETY

      1. Thanks for your lovely appreciation of my comments which you so very richly deserve! It’s my great pleasure to appraise your blogs being very spiritually enlightening 🌷💕🙏

  3. Being vocally very angry and callously cruel, some ‘Christians’ make bad, if not contradictory, examples of Jesus’s fundamental message of compassion and charity, especially to the young and impressionable. At the very least, there needs to be more Christ-like Christians publicly speaking out against the un-Christ-like conduct of much of (what I call) institutional Christianity – in particular those who insist upon loudly declaring that God hates this or that group of people.

    From my understanding, Judaism’s messiah is reflective of the unambiguously fire-and-brimstone angry-God Almighty of the Torah, Old Testament and Quran. This thus left even John the Baptist, who believed in Jesus as the savior, troubled by Jesus’ apparently contradictory version of Messiah, notably his revolutionary teaching of non-violently offering the other cheek as the proper response to being physically assaulted by one’s enemy.

    I, a believer in Christ’s unmistakable miracles, feel that Jesus was/is intended to prove to people that there really was hope for the many — especially for young people living in today’s physical, mental and spiritual turmoil — seeing hopelessness in a fire-and-brimstone angry-God-condemnation creator requiring literal pain-filled penance for Man’s sinful thus corrupted behavior. He became incarnate to show humankind what Messiah ought to and has to be. Fundamentally, that definitely includes resurrection.

    Still, there is a very important place/function for immense suffering within/for Christianity, notably that of Christ’s apostles. They travelled across vast, hazardous territories to testify to witnessing his miracles, especially his defeating death twice (including Lazarus). And, as is pretty well known, a number of apostles suffered horrific deaths because of their faith, fates I very much doubt they would have willingly suffered — Batholomew was skinned alive — had they believed Jesus actually was a false messiah, a lie, and in fact dead. It is this that mostly enables me to keep my own faith.

    1. First of all thank you so very much for offering your commentary on my write up on GOOF FRIDAY.

      I fully agree with your contention. Still one thing is clear that those personages who counted in the olden days too remain giving us hope and a feel that there was and is someone to whom we can remember and can expect deliverance of our problems. Faith and beliefs can do a lot for us. But this belief should be sincere with purity of body, mind and soul.

      Your perspective is really moving. Believers differ as men differ in their perceptions. As far as i am concerned, i take everything from the leaf of all good experiences in order to learn something from each and make a difference while maintaining purity in thoughts and Karmic deeds. I am immensely influenced by LORD JESUS CHRIST and His teachings.

      Then there are people who would pick holes in some ancient thoughts and percepts, I am of the view that those thoughts and perceptions were right during those times but now there has been some evolution in thoughts through empirical experiences. Still, the violence resorted by some of us against the humanity in any part of the world should give us pain since all of us are fundamentally of the same SOURCE.

      My sincere gratitude to you for sharing your thoughts,
