On Easter: Have Joy and Go to Work

As a child, "Good Friday" seemed a paradox. What can be good about the day one is tortured and murdered by his enemies? But the words attributed to Jesus' mouth say otherwise. He said His kingdom was spiritual one therfore it cannot be here on earth, as so many "Christians" now wrongly believe; if it were, we would have nothing to do for Him!

Jesus needed to shed his earthy body. It was only used for a little while to teach us. His kingdom began on earth when his body died. It is logical that He is a silent spirit among us, to lead those who will listen to him through words he left.

If to the contrary, Jesus was to have an earthly kingdom, as Christian Zionists say, he could have grabbed a human weapon and mowed down the Pharisees who condemned him along with enough of the Roman Legions to cause Pilate to depose Herod and install Jesus as "King of the Judeans." After all, this is what His followers expected in spite of all his teaching to the contrary.

What makes Jesus so believable to me is that He plainly told them the agenda but no one believed him until after he was crucified. Jesus said to Pilate "my kingdom is not of this world" and he expects us to believe it and act like we believe Him.

Jesus' most remembered words are about making peace. But man's nature is to enable those who make war. Jesus did not die for Christian-Zionism, which preaches a wrong doctrine of a warring Jesus that they expect to return on a white horse with a monster sword in his hands to dispatch most of the human race. We humbly believe God must see Christian-Zionism as the vilest apostasy in the 2000 year history of Christianity.

Our mission is to rescue followers of Christ from the apostasy called Christian-Zionism, and its sly forerunner that goes by the name of Judeo-Christianity, also an oxymoron.
We try as best we can to reach out to the "lost sheep" inside our churches who do not know they are lost. They will remain lost if they listen only to their apostate religious leaders.
Our purpose is to point the ancient way to the "Strait Gate." Christian-Zionism, by whatever name, is not that path and is purely a political movement.

We ask Christ followers to be Peacemakers in His name, and reject the evil of warring on behalf of Israel, or any other state. We invite you to join us in taking joy in Jesus' sacrifice. It seem all too obvious that Jesus left a role for us to play here on earth. We could not accomplish it if He was here carrying out justice with a club.
