This is a Religious write-up put up to well understand the essence of Good Friday. Anyone who is not in tune with the Christian religion may find it un-believable, or sometimes offensive. If you are not open minded or at least neutral in thinking, you are requested to leave this post.
I assure you that this post is not for Holy Crusades, but is meant for educational purpose of some, while it is a religious to others.
Positive discussion is appreciated. Kindly refrain from criticism of the religion. The comments will be seen and ‘examined’ before being accepted. We cannot create any more trouble and confusion than there is now.
A little Background, please.
A long time ago, God created the Heavens and the Earth. And on the Sixth day, Man was created in the image of God. God named him Adam.
When God saw that Man was alone, out of Man, Woman was created. They were placed in the Garden of Eden. They were happy for they knew not good or evil. God so loved His creations.
All things they may eat and enjoy, but one tree was forbidden.
And in the Garden of Eden, was Lucifer (Read the Devil). He was determined to destroy the creation of God. And that’s what he did when he tempted the Woman to eat of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. In this chain, Man also ate from the woman. They realized that they were naked, and that they were.
When God found out that they had disobeyed Him. He cast them out of Eden. Adam named the woman Eve.
Thus the bond that God had with Man was broken. And,
“Man had sinned and fell short of the glory of God.”
And so it continued for generations and generations.
God so loved the World (Read Mankind). He was wondering whom to send to die for their sins. That was when Jesus, the Son of God stepped forward to sacrifice Himself for the sins of the World.
And Four thousand years post the creation, Jesus was sent to the World to die for the sins of the World. To build the bridge between God and Man. To restore the Bond that God and Man shared before the Fall of Man in the Garden of Eden.
This was known as the Plan of Salvation.
“For god so loved the World, that he gave His only begotten Son. That whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
Jesus was born to Mary by what we know as the Holy Conception. And thirty years after His birth, he began his Mission to bring Salvation.
“Salvation has been brought down.”
After Three years of Missionary work, the time had come to pay the ultimate price, the sacrifice. So, the whole “Plan of Salvation” culminated on Good Friday, when Jesus was nailed on the Cross for the Sins of the World.
Now the Bridge is built. But a choice is given to Man (When I say man, it mean Mankind, including Women). A choice to believe, in Jesus and the Plan of Salvation. Which means to cross over the bridge and be united in the Bond with God.
Else we perish for, “The wages of sin is death.” And the Sin does not mean the Ten things for which the Commandments were written. It means the First Sin, the Sin which the First Adam and the First Eve committed and was with each and every one of us that were born on this World thence.
As I told you, it is a religious write-up. But if you had read up to here, then I want to thank you. If you have any confusion, please ask as comment or mail me at email@example.com .Even if I can’t answer, I will make sure you get the answer from people who knows.
God Bless you. Have a blessed Day.
On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,
The emblem of suffering and shame;
And I love that old cross where the dearest and best
For a world of lost sinners was slain.
So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross,
Till my trophies at last I lay down;
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
And exchange it someday for a crown.
O that old rugged cross, so despised by the world,
Has a wondrous attraction for me;
For the dear Lamb of God left His glory above
To bear it to dark Calvary.
In that old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine,
A wondrous beauty I see,
For ’twas on that old cross Jesus suffered and died,
To pardon and sanctify me.
To the old rugged cross I will ever be true;
Its shame and reproach gladly bear;
Then He’ll call me some day to my home far away,
Where His glory forever I’ll share.
