08-14-2023 Matthew Ch 27 v-5761 Rock hewn tomb new He was laid
Gospel of Matthew Ch 27 v- 57 thru 61
57 When it was evening, there came a rich man from Arimathea named Joseph, who was himself a disciple of Jesus. 58 He went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus; then Pilate ordered it to be handed over. 59 Taking the body, Joseph wrapped it [in] clean linen 60 and laid it in his new tomb that he had hewn in the rock. Then he rolled a huge stone across the entrance to the tomb and departed. 61 But Mary Magdalene and the other Mary remained sitting there, facing the tomb.
The tomb of Jesus was sealed with wax and ropes while guarded by two Roman guards a point of no return. Nobody allowed in surely nobody would be allowed out. But that’s not the case for it wasn’t so God’s Divine Will opened the tomb and brought Jesus about more rewarding than when He did it with Lazarus when He called the dead man out. A sequence of events that followed the Will of God! This Determination this Resolve the Tenacity of The Only Savior mankind will ever see was predetermined planned before time began allowing humanity to know the free will of Salvation! Amen. Here, we are able to live His Divine Will by a confession of faith following the choices of Redemption where goodwill props up peace, passion and purpose of living Eternal Life. The call of every child, woman and man; to live forever. Not a soul I would fathom really wants to die. Nobody really wants to rot in a grave six feet under. Look at the saints and popes of the past lying in a state of grace in a mausoleum ready to rise upon His second coming where dry bones will be dancing in the streets of Truth and Escape. We believe that “He [Jesus] shall come again in glory to judge the living and the dead; and His kingdom shall have no end.” As we live in waiting we live in prayer that is constant for we know to “Therefore, stay awake! For you do not know on which day your Lord will come.” Yes!
Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. NJ Emmaus in Oct. Kairos 56. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. We pray for Holy Mother Church. Prayers for a friend and his wife for a baby to be born. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

**Rock hewn tomb new He was laid**
In the evening Joseph of Arimathea a man rich came
Jesus’ disciple was he
Jesus’ body he asked Pilate to gain
Jesus was given an ordering Pilate did agree
Linen clean wrapped body taken
Rock hewn tomb new He was laid
Tombs entrance stone huge rolled unshaken
Departed Joseph tomb facers Mary and Magdalene Mary stayed
