May the miracle of Easter bring you renewed hope, faith, love and joy.

As we gather with family and friends to celebrate Easter, may this time inspire you to new hope, happiness, prosperity and abundance, all received through God's divine grace.

Easter gives hope for tomorrow. Our hearts can be filled with gladness, as hearts rejoice and sing.

Easter is a time of reflection and joy, when we emerge from our cocoon of doubt to fly freely on the wings of faith.

Easter is a wonderful day to celebrate all God has done for us!

We wish you all a blessed Easter! 

God Bless each and every one of you! 

Rahthrae, Rita and Robin

Divinely Blinded: Lessons from the Road to Emmaus

When reviewing the Emmaus account in Luke 24, many people seem to have the same nagging question. Why didn’t those two downcast disciples of Jesus (Yeshua) recognize Him immediately when He happened upon them? I imagine we could agree that immediate recognition surely would have saved them, at the very least, a two-hour trek all the way to Emmaus. After all, an early moment of recognition would probably have prompted the zealous proclamation, “Forget Emmaus, let’s head to the upper-room now!”

Perhaps some folks, reading the account for the first time, might surmise that it would have been more compassionate for Jesus to reveal His identity at the onset, especially because they were in such despair. Surely recognizing Him immediately would have moved them to a place of rejoicing. This is particularly true since it is exactly what happened when they finally did recognize Jesus; back to Jerusalem they sprinted to announce their experiences with the other disciples.

Indeed, Luke 24:16 states that, their eyes were prevented [or quite literally were being prevented] from recognizing Him. However, the question is, Why? Speculating as to why God does something supernatural always puts us on dangerous territory. I believe God pays close attention to how folks who purport to know something, share that something. However, at the same time, in our pursuit for truth, I also believe it’s healthy to share our thoughts on particular matters as long as we are careful to note that our theories remain in the realm of pure speculation. Therefore, allow me to speculate on the matter of the disciple’s particular type of Divine blindness.

No doubt, Cleopas and his traveling partner struggled to reconcile the events they witnessed with the identity of the One they loved and thought they had lost forever. They genuinely desired answers; some sort of context to explain their own personal, why? They had a picture in their minds. They knew what they saw, what they experienced, and this they tried to reconcile with their own presumptions regarding the coming Messiah. They exchanged meaningful, impassioned words, but until the Word Himself walked with them, their exchange only amounted to more confusion and despair. Especially, it seems, when they had to explain those painful events to that Unannounced Eavesdropper. There seems to be a bit of irony in their desperate search for truth, as Truth Himself walked beside them.

For me, there is something precious in the picture of Christ walking with us in our darkest hour, which I cannot overlook. So often, as fleshly humans, we desire an answer when His desire is that we have the answer—Himself. He knows what is required for us to reach that place of joy and peace in Him. What an example we have in the road to Emmaus account: where two or more are gathered, there He is in their midst.

Amen.

Amen, Jodi! Happy Easter to you. :))
