Summary: When did you kill Jesus?

WHO SIGNED THE DEATH CERTIFICATE

LUKE 23:40-43

BUT THE OTHER ANSWERING REBUKED HIM, SAYING, DOST THOU NOT FEAR GOD, SEEING THAT THOU ART IN THE SAME CONDEMNATION

AND WE INDEED JUSTLY, FOR WE RECEIVE THE DUE REWARD OF OUR DEEDS, BUT THIS MAN HATH DONE NOTHING AMISS

AND HE SAID UNTO JESUS, LORD, REMEMBER ME WHEN THOU COMEST INTO THY KINGDOM

AND JESUS SAID UNTO HIM, VERILY, I SAY UNTO THEE, TODAY SHALT THOU BE WITH ME IN PARADISE

FOR THE NEXT LITTLE WHILE, LET ME BORROW YOUR PRAYERS AND YOUR IMAGINATIONS AS WE ATTEMPT TO ANSWER THE QUESTION, WHO SIGNED THE DEATH CERTIFICATE?

IT IS CUSTOMARY THAT WHEN SOMEONE DIES VIOLENTLY, THE NEXT OF KIN IS NOTIFIED BY WAY OF A TELEPHONE CALL, A TELEGRAM, OR A VISIT FROM A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER.

AN AUTOPSY IS PERFORMED AND A DEATH CERTIFICATE IS THEN CREATED AND IS FILED WITH THE STATE HEALTH DEPARTMENT OR THE BUREAU OF VITAL STATISTICS STATING THE CAUSE OF DEATH.

AND THAT’S WHY I FIND IT STRANGE THAT I HAVE BEEN HEARING RUMORS THAT MY BIG BROTHER ON MY FATHERS SIDE HAS DIED VIOLENTLY AND WAS BURIED AND NO ONE TOOK THE TIME TO NOTIFY ME SO I COULD GO AND PAY MY LAST RESPECTS.

WHO SIGNED THE DEATH CERTIFICATE?

WHAT WAS THE DOCTORS NAME THAT DECLARED TO THE WORLD THAT HE HAD DIED?

WHO WROTE THE OBITUARY?

WHO DID THE EULOGY?

WHY WAS I NOT INFORMED BEING AS I AM A JOINT HEIR AND A BROTHER

IF THERE WAS SOME QUESTION AS TO THE VALIDITY OF MY CLAIM, THEY COULD HAVE GONE TO THE LIBRARY OF HEAVEN AND LOOKED IN THE LAMBS BOOK OF LIFE OR IN THE SECTION CALLED THE WORD OF GOD AND LOOKED IN THE 8TH CHAPTER OF ROMANS AROUND THE 17TH VERSE OR LOOKED IN THE BOOK OF GALATIANS AROUND THE 3RD CHAPTER AND THE 26-29 VERSE AND THEY WOULD HAVE FOUND THESE WORDS

“THE SPIRIT ITSELF BEARS WITNESS WITH OUR SPIRIT THAT WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF GOD. AND IF CHILDREN THEN HEIRS OF GOD, AND JOINT HEIRS WITH CHRIST…

AND IT GOES ON TO SAY FOR YE ARE ALL CHILDREN OF GOD BY FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST. AND IF YE BE CHRIST’S, THEN ARE YE ABRAHAM’S SEED AND HEIRS ACCORDING TO THE PROMISE.”

SOMEBODY OUGHT TO TELL ME, WHO SIGNED THE DEATH CERTIFICATE?

THE BIBLE TELLS ME THAT WE ARE A CHOSEN GENERATION

A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD

A PECULIAR PEOPLE

A HOLY NATION

HEAVEN’S AMBASSADORS AND WE ARE FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE.

AND BEING AS WE ARE OF ROYAL BLOOD, THERE ARE CERTAIN FORMALITIES THAT MUST BE ADHERED TO WHEN SOMEONE IN THE ROYAL FAMILY PASSES.

THERE IS A LOT OF FANFARE AND CEREMONIES INVOLVED. YOU SEE, WHEN THE PRESIDENT OR A DIGNITARY PASSES THEY ARE NOT RUSHED INTO THE GROUND. THEIR BODY LIES IN STATE FOR A FEW DAYS SO THAT PEOPLE CAN COME AND PAY THEIR FINAL RESPECTS AND TO MY KJNOWLEDGE NONE OF THIS HAS OCCURRED

SOMEBODY TELL ME, WHO SIGNED THE DEATH CERTIFICATE?

I READ WHAT WAS LATER DESCRIBED AS HIS LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT, WHERE HE SAID IN MY FATHER’S HOUSE ARE MANY MANSIONS, IF IT WAS NOT SO, I WOULD HAVE TOLD YOU.

HE WENT ON TO SAY, AND I’M PARAPHRASING NOW, I GOT TO LEAVE YOU FOR A LITTLE WHILE. BUT DON’T WORRY ABOUT ME BECAUSE I GO TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU, AND WHEN I COME AGAIN I WILL RECEIVE YOU UNTIL MYSELF THAT WHERE I AM THERE YOU MAY BE ALSO.

I DON’T KNOW CALVARY, MAYBE I’VE GOT THIS THING ALL WRONG, BUT THAT DOESN’T SOUND LIKE A DYING MAN TO ME. IT SOUNDS LIKE SOMEONE WHO’S ANTICIPATING A LONG AND PROSPEROUS LIFE.

IT SOUND LIKE SOMEBODY WHO’S GETTING READY TO LIVE A LIFE THAT’S FULL

I WENT TO SEE MY BIG BROTHER MATTTHEW AND HE GAVE ME PART OF THE STORY. HE SAID THE LAST TIME HE SAW HIM HE WAS STANDING ON A HILLSIDE AND LEAVING INSTRUCTION TO HIS DISCIPLES.

HE SAID GO YE THEREFORE AND TEACH ALL NATIONS, BAPTIZING THEM IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER

AND THE NAME OF THE SON

AND IN THE NAME OF THE HOLY GHOST

TEACHING THEM TO OBSERVE ALL THINGS WHATSOEVER I HAVE COMMANDED YOU, AND LO I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS EVEN UNTO THE ENDS OF THE WORLD.

WHO SIGNED THE DEATH CERTIFICATE?

I STOPPED BY AND TALKED TO BROTHER MARK AND DOCTOR LUKE, BUT THEY GAVE ME THE SAME ACCOUNT AS BROTHER MATTHEW HAD.

THEY TOLD ME IF I REALLY WANTED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED I SHOULD TALK TO BROTHER JOHN BECAUSE HE WAS THERE. HE WAS AN EYE WITNESS TO THE WHOLE EVENT.

SO I WENT TO SEE MY LITTLE BRO. JOHN BECAUSE THIS WAS TOO IMPORTANT AND I HAD TO KNOW FOR MYSELF. THERE ARE SOME RUMORS THAT PEOPLE SPREAD AND YOU TAKE THEM AT FACE VALUE BUT THEN THERE ARE OTHERS THAT YOU NEED TO KNOW FOR YOURSELF.
