This Man God raised (on) the third day and granted that He be visible

Wig’s Word of God Today 4-24-2011 Resurrection Sunday


This Man God raised (on) the third day and granted that He be visible, not to all the people, but to us, the witnesses chosen by God in advance, who ate and drank with Him after He rose from the dead. Acts 10: 40-41
If then you were raised with Christ, seek what is above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Colossians 3:1
For they did not yet understand the Scripture that He had to rise from the dead. John 20:9

Acts 10:34a, 37-43, Psalm 118, Colossians 3:1-4 & John 20: 1-9
I awoke early on the Third Day to hear two of His Disciples running by my hut muttering, “she says the tomb was empty.” I looked out and saw one running faster than the other and I slipped away from my three children who were still sleeping to follow them and see what had happened. As they approached the tomb, the enormous rock over the entrance had been rolled away and the one named Simon Peter had just arrived. They both went in and appeared a moment later saying, “He has been taken.” My heart rejoiced for I knew in my heart no one had stole the body of Jesus the Christ for I had overheard Him saying He would rise on third day. Quietly I returned to my hut and prayed to God Almighty that His raising had occurred in accordance with His Teachings.
Our imaginary mother has witnessed the empty tomb. Not an Easter Bunny hopping away. Not a hidden egg behind a rock but an empty tomb and has believed. The Son of Man has returned to life from the Power of the Father to prove His Divine Truth and we celebrate this fact over 2000 years later because He has shown us His Life, Death and Resurrection occurred for the Forgiveness of Sins for all Humanity so we may live in harmony with one another and gain Eternal Life for those who believe. Paul tells us in Acts 10 that Jesus was appointed by the Living God to judge the living and the dead and “to Him all the prophets bear witness, that everyone who believes in Him will receive forgiveness of sins through His name.” Acts 10:43
We celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ as an embrace of our complete surrender to His New Covenant of Love allowing Humanity to have forgiveness of sins giving us faith, hope and love to share with all mankind. His Resurrection bears witness to God’s Divine Plan for mankind giving us Redemption of hatred, jealously and greed providing a hope of Salvation to all. This is a true celebration of life over death that can only come from God. You too “were raise with Christ” giving you a complete sense of trust deep inside your soul where the Son dwells in Spirit providing you a Oneness with His Truth through your practice, prayer and proclamation. As Thomas Merton once wrote, “you must actively participate in Christ’s Truth to overcome doubt and to live in faith. For faith means doubt of a human person seeking the divine.” In His Resurrection you celebrate your love of loving His Truth and embrace Him as the Way of living in joy and sorrows of life. Amen.
So we ask in prayer: Heaven King and Almighty Father, we pray today to always celebrate Your Son’s Resurrection through our faith, our charity and our love of His Truth. We pray our celebration of His Resurrection will give us confidence to provide hope for the imprisoned, the lonely and the sick. We ask this through Christ our LORD Whom lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit One God forever and ever. Amen.

God Bless,

You Can See Him Resurrect Your Life

He lived to die for you
He lived to share with you
He lived to take care of you
He lived to Resurrect for you

His life was sinless surrounded by sin
His life was fruitful providing a win
His life was shameless providing hope
His life was honored allowing you to cope

You can see Him in every living thing
You can see Him pouring in the rain
You can see Him in the eyes of shame
You can see Him in the faith we gain

You can see Him in a beggars smile
You can see Him solve a fight
You can see Him you have the right
You can see Him Resurrect your life

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
