The Ministry Years: – 40th Miracle – the risen Christ- theunfetteredpreacher

The Risen Christ, not yet Resurrected, not yet in His Glorified Body, appeared first to Mary Magdalene.

A women, that He had cast out seven devils.

How is it possible that she was the one and only who saw Jesus, alive, yet before ascending to the Father and being Glorified?

“saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.”

Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

We have seen her many times (12), in the Gospels.

She was special, the others with her, had left, she stayed in tears.

Like John, the Disciple that rested on Jesus’s breast, and was the only Disciple to die a natural death.

Mary Magdalene, was Special for her love.

Please do not misunderstand, all the Disciples loved the Lord, and the Lord loved them all.

Somehow, both John and Mary, had found the Holy of Holies, the special place, the secret place, under the shadow of His wings.

They found the place of rest, that remains for all who love Him.

Oh Lord, help me to find and enter into the Secret Place, the place where I will see, (Psalms 91), “A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

The Secret Place, Lord, I long to live there. Amen

Mark 16:9-11 (KJV)

Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.

And she went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept.

And they, when they had heard that he was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not.

John 20:11-18 (KJV)

But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre, And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.

And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou?

She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him.

And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.

Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou?

She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.

Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.

Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken these things unto her.

Oh, the humanity: theunfetteredpreacher

Oh, the humanity.

13 dead, and 1 dead, from a deliberate terrorism by car.

The Media is consumed with our President aligning the KKK to Antifa and BLM’s.

The implication is Antifa, and BLM, are Righteous, their cause Just, that the Lawbreaking, Police Killing, Confederate History Erasing , is all normal behavior.

IT IS NOT.

The KKK is despicable, as are Antifa and BLM’s.

They are all terrorists. They should be prosecuted and jailed. If caught in the act, SHOT….

We need to adhere to the law. Respect the law. Support the law abiding, and prosecute the lawless.

The President is right. The left… KKK, ANTIFA AND BLM’s, are ALL EQUALLY AT FAULT.

Quit pretending, the lefts, law breakers, are great people, and the Conservatives, (not the KKK), but Conservatives, Patriots, people who just want to Make America Great Again, are the ones to hate.

We need to use our God given intellect, to sort through the lies and intellectual dishonesty of the left, and join together to, MAGA.

Rant complete. Amen

The Ministry Years: Miracle 39- – The Tomb is empty – wondering in himself – theunfetteredpreacher

The Tomb is empty.

The last Miracle before the ascension.

Luke 24:1-12 (KJV)  Mark 16:1-8 (KJV)  Matthew 28:1-8 (KJV) 
John 20:1-12 (KJV)

The  Tomb is empty.

Peter, “wondering in himself at that which was come to pass.

They had seen Him dead, and buried.  They came to ready Him for a proper burial.

The Tomb is empty.

Mary Magdalene and Joanna, and Mary , “they were much perplexed.”

The Tomb was empty.

The Apostles.    “they believed them not.

The Tomb was empty.

Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome.  “they trembled and were amazed:”

they were afraid.”

The Tomb was empty.

Mary Magdalene and the other Mary.  “departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy;

The Tomb was empty.

Mary Magdalene.  “stood without at the sepulchre weeping:”

Wondering in himself, perplexed, believed not, trembled, amazed, afraid, fear and great joy, (having heard the promise of a Resurrected Christ), Stood weeping.

How would we have reacted?  The Word tells us they had not yet,  “remembered his words,”  “For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead.”

This should open our eyes.  We have Scripture, that, As yet we know not the meaning.   Do not reject out of hand a revelation a saint may have.

Study to see if these things be true.  If it is a revelation from God, there will be two or three other scriptures to confirm.

If you find confirmation, embrace this new revelation, it is given to carry out the Lords work.

Deuteronomy 29:29

The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.”

The Lord has given us the bricks to build His Church.  (the gifts of the Spirit),  We must learn to use them.

Luke 24:1-12 (KJV)

“Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.

And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.

And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.

And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:

And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?

He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,

Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.

And they remembered his words,

And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest.

It was Mary Magdalene and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and other women that were with them, which told these things unto the apostles.

And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not. 

Then arose Peter, and ran unto the sepulchre; and stooping down, he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves, and departed, wondering in himself at that which was come to pass.”

Mark 16:1-8 (KJV)

“And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.

And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.

And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre?

And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.

And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.

And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.

But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.

And they went out quickly, and fled from the sepulchre; for they trembled and were amazed: neither said they any thing to any man; for they were afraid.”

Matthew 28:1-8 (KJV)

“In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.

And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:

And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.

And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.

He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.

And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.”

John 20:1-12 (KJV)

“The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.

Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him.

Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre.

So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre.

And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in.

Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie,

And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.

Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed.

For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead.

Then the disciples went away again unto their own home.

But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre,

And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.”

The Ministry Years: Miracle 36 – – theunfetteredpreacher

Matthew 20:29-34  Mark 10:46-52

Luke 18:35-43

Once again Jesus going to where people had needs.

Blind men calling to Him….  When rebuked by the crowd called even more.

It is interesting, Jesus, did not go to them, but called them to come to Him.

We must come to Jesus,  He is always there, just out of our way.  He doesn’t interfere in our life’s choices, freewill is always available.

He allows us to choose wrong, or right.  We reap the reward of our choices.   Notice, they were specific, when asked their desire.

That my eyes be opened, that I would receive my sight.

That is a prayer we need to pray for the world.  That our eyes be opened.  That we would see into the spiritual realm.  That we would understand His love.

Immediately they could see.

When we come to the Lord, (we must leave our sinful nature and desires behind), when we come, ready to believe and obey, we find ourselves healed, set free, and forgiven.

If we would just learn how to enter the Holy of Holies, we would live, lives of answered prayers.

Matthew 20:29-34  (KJV)

29 And as they departed from Jericho, a great multitude followed him.
30 And, behold, two blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David.
31 And the multitude rebuked them, because they should hold their peace: but they cried the more, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David.
32 And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What will ye that I shall do unto you?
33 They say unto him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened.
34 So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him.

Mark 10:46-52 (KJV)

46 And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging.
47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me.
48 And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou son of David, have mercy on me.
49 And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee.
50 And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.
51 And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight.
52 And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.

Luke 18:35-43 (KJV)

35 And it came to pass, that as he was come nigh unto Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the way side begging:
36 And hearing the multitude pass by, he asked what it meant.
37 And they told him, that Jesus of Nazareth passeth by.
38 And he cried, saying, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me.
39 And they which went before rebuked him, that he should hold his peace: but he cried so much the more, Thou son of David, have mercy on me.
40 And Jesus stood, and commanded him to be brought unto him: and when he was come near, he asked him,
41 Saying, What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee? And he said, Lord, that I may receive my sight.
42 And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee.
43 And immediately he received his sight, and followed him, glorifying God: and all the people, when they saw it, gave praise unto God.
