Jesus Rose Like a G…OD

By: Carletta Traylor aka C.N.

It’s that time of year again, y’all! We reflect on our Lord and Savior, Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus Christ’s true name), dying on Calvary’s cross/stake, laying in Joseph’s tomb for three days (he was just taking a cat nap), and getting up on that third day, with all power in his hands (Superman and Black Lightning better BACK UP before they get SMACKED UP!).

 

Firstly, we shouldn’t limit our appreciation for Yahushua Hamashiach’s (Jesus Christ’s) resurrection to just Resurrection Sunday; Yahushua Hamashiach deserves adoration for his life, death and resurrection everyday…the man defeated Satan, Hell, death and the grave all in one fell swoop (like an A-1 BOSS!)! Yahushua Hamashiach didn’t need guns, drugs, liquor, sex, money, bling-bling (that hot garbage turns your neck green and these so-called “celebrities” have to return it after the video/photo shoot. Haha), curse words, or an entourage to prove to the world that HE was Yah (God’s true name; short for Yahuah), that Yah the Father (God Almighty) sent HIM to bring this sinful world back to him, that HE was the Lord and Savior that this lost world needed (we’re more Lost than Jack Shephard, Kate Austen, Nemo and Dory combined. Haha), and that HE is the way, the truth, and the life, and no one comes unto the Father, but by HIM (John 14:6 (KJV)).

 

Yah the Father (God Almighty) sent Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus Christ), his beloved son, into the world to reconcile the world back to him…but that’s not where the story ends. Yahushua Hamashiach is coming back for his church (all believers in and followers of him; the most beautiful bride that will ever exist-no offense, ladies. Haha), he will destroy all of the evil in this world, and, as Yah the Father (God Almighty) makes clear to us in Philippians 2:10-11 (KJV), “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

 

I always like to explain how we all can become saved (give our lives to Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus Christ)). Becoming saved is as simple as ABC:

 

·   Admit that we’re sinners, and ask Yah (God) to please forgive us of our sins (bad things that we say, do, don’t do, and/or think, that Yah (God) doesn’t like) and help us to stop sinning (Please clean me up, Lord! I’m hot garbage, dipped in excrement, sprinkled in chitling grease on the inside (just STANKY!)!).

·   Believe that Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus Christ) is Yah’s (God’s) Son, that he died on the Cross/stake for our sins, that he rose from the dead (3 days later) with all power in his hands, that he’s back in Heaven, sitting at Yah’s (God’s) right hand right now, and that he’s coming back to get his children (take all believers home with him to Heaven) and to judge/destroy this wicked world.

·   Commit ourselves to following Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus Christ)(listen to him and live for/like him forevermore).

 

I don’t know know about anyone else, but I’ve always been a very curious person (move around, Garfield! Curiosity won’t kill this cat!). I often wonder how we today would react to Yahushua Hamashiach’s resurrection, had it happened in modern times? Let’s find out! NOTE: I will be utilizing modern-day language, technology, and ways of living in this story, as we’re picturing this happening today.

 

Storytime: Jesus Did WHAT?!?!

By: Carletta Traylor aka C.N.

Biblical References: Matthew 28:1-20; Mark 16:1-20; Luke 24:1-49; and John 20:1-21:25.

Shelley (calling her best friend, Sandra, at 5:00 a.m.): Sandra?! Sandra?! Wake up! GIRRLLLL, you won’t believe what I just heard!

Sandra (wiping the crust out of her eyes and wondering why Shelley is calling her this early in the morning; she’s so trifling): Hey, girl. What’s up?

Shelley: Tamika just called me and told me that Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus) isn’t in the tomb anymore! She was coming back from getting her hair done (Lord knows her head was looking like a war zone!), and she ran into Mary Magdalene, James’s mom, Mary, Joanna and Salome. They told her that they went to anoint Yahushua Hamashiach’s (Jesus’s) body, but when they got to the tomb, an earthquake came out of nowhere and–

Sandra: Hold up! There was an earthquake?! Did Tamika’s hair get messed up?! Watching her lose her mind over her bangs being blown to the back of her neck is the funniest thing ever! I’m sorry. I need to stop. Haha.

Shelley: You aren’t right for that! So wrong…just so wrong. Haha. Forreal, though, she told me that they told her that when they went to anoint Yahushua Hamashiach’s (Jesus’s) body, there was a huge earthquake, and an angel from Heaven, dressed in white, appeared. The angel rolled the stone away from in front of the tomb, told Mary and them that Yahushua Hamashiach’s (Jesus’s) body was gone, and said, and I quote:

“He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.”

Sandra: An angel appeared? Are you sure? You know that Joanna starts acting crazy when she hasn’t taken her medication. She tried to argue with me about talking to hey boyfriend in her dreams. Girl! I can’t help that I appeared in your dreams! I don’t want your boyfriend!

Shelley: I promise you that she was calm and in her right mind this time. They said that the angel appeared, rolled the stone away, told them that Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus) was not in the tomb, and that they could check for themselves.

Sandra: Ok. Go on.

Shelley: They went looking for Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus), and he wasn’t there. The angel told them to go tell the twelve apostles what had happened, and before they got to the apostles, Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus) himself appeared before them, they fell down and worshipped him, and Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus) told them, and I quote:

“Do not be afraid. Go tell my brothers to go to Galilee. There they will see me.”

Sandra: Woah! Woah! Woah! They saw Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus)?! Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus) talked to them?! The same Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus) who was just killed on the cross-which he didn’t deserve and makes me so mad that I could-focus, Sandra. I’m sorry. Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus) talked to them?! Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus) was just killed. How could he have talked to them?

Shelley: He said that if we’ve seen him, we’ve seen the Father-I believe that Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus) is Yah (God) in bodily form. My guess is divine intervention. Anywho, Tamika told me that Mary Magdalene and them told her that they went and told the apostles what had happened, Peter and one other apostle went to the tomb and saw that Yahushua Hamashiach’s (Jesus’s) body was gone (only the linen cloths that his body had been wrapped in remained), the guards told the chief priests what had happened, and the priests tried to bribe them with money to say that the apostles stole Yahushua Hamashiach’s (Jesus’s) body during the night.

Sandra: I can’t stand those crooked-

Shelley: Errr! Back it up! Don’t do it! What would Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus) do?

Sandra: You know what? Haha. I’m sorry. I’ll behave.

Shelley: Yes, girl! They’re trying to bribe the soldiers into saying that the apostles stole Yahushua Hamashiach’s (Jesus’s) body, but Tamika told me that they told her that they saw Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus) again near the tomb, that Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus) appeared before the apostles while they were praying in someone’s house, that Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus) walked with two of the apostles on the road to Emmaus-but they did not immediately recognize him-and that Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus) visited the apostles while they were fishing at the Sea of Galilee.

Sandra: Two words: MIND BLOWN. I don’t know what to say, girl. I’ll admit, all of this is a bit hard to believe, but you’ve always been my Day One, my ride or die, and have always kept it real with me. I’ll take your word for it.

Shelley: While I appreciate your kind words, girl, I don’t want you to believe this just because I said it; I want you to truly believe in your heart that Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus) rose from the dead, with all power in his hands. We must do a few things. Firstly, we must repent of our sins, which means that we must ask the Lord to forgive us for all of the things that we have said, done, not done, or thought that he did not like, as well as ask him to clean us up, from the inside out, so that we will not want to do (and won’t do) bad things anymore. Secondly, we must believe that Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus) is the Son of Yah (God), Yah (God) in the flesh, our Lord and Savior, who died on Calvary, but rose from the dead, three days later, with all power in his hands. Thirdly, we must decide that we are going to put Yah (God) first and follow Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus) the rest of our lives-we must obey (listen to) and want to live like Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus) in every way. When we do these things, we will go to Heaven and be with Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus) forever-happy, smiling, singing, and full of joy and laughter-once we die. GIRLLLLLLLL! I want to be with Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus) when I die. Real talk.

Sandra: Yes, girl! With all of that to look forward to, I want to be with Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus) too! Let’s get it! Ain’t no party like a Holy Ghost party, ’cause a Holy Ghost party don’t stop! Party over here! Ooh-ooh! Party over here! Ooh-ooh!

Shelley: THANK YOU! I’m feeling good right now! How about we go to breakfast? I’ll call Tamika and invite her as well.

Sandra: Sounds good to me, girl! I’ll call you when I’m dressed.

Shelley: Perfect! I’ll see you in a few!

Sandra: See you in a few, Love! Deuces!

Shelley: Peace!

  1. Such a very good modern day message, C.N. That is really good content and message is clear to this Christian woman. The woman in your narrative questions what is being said, just as it was on that day so many many years ago. Modern day, we would still question, as you can only understand if you have been following and living the word of God. Thank you for your true Easter message.
    Take care, and keep well.

    1. Thank you so much for your warm words, Nancy! There are so many people today, even some Christians, who question what really happened during Jesus’s day. God’s understanding is far beyond our understanding, and when we proclaim Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we must fully and wholeheartedly believe in his birth, life, death, and resurrection. The Bible gives us insight as to how to process this information, and what we don’t know, we ask God for. If he means for us to know certain things, he will reveal it in his time, in in his own way. If he doesn’t mean for us to know something, we have to trust him and know that he knows best. 🙂 God bless you!

  2. I love your take on the Bible story, it fits very well in this modern world.
    Easter means so much to me, we taught our children that it isn’t all about chocolate and Easter eggs. It has a true meaning and now they are teaching our grandchildren about it.

    1. Thank you so much for your comment, Lisa! Yes, as a devout Christian, it’s so important that we never lose sight of why we’re here and what we’re meant to do-praise our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and bring lost souls to him. As kids, we always enjoyed the Easter egg hunts and the candy, but my grandparents always made sure that we knew the true meaning of every day-to praise God, praise God, and praise God some more. I’m so happy that I’m able to share this with others. God bless you!

  3. You do such lovely this-day-this-age renditions of the Bible. Thank God there are those like u, or how would the present generation ever understand the message of Jesus.
    This is such a powerful piece on Easter and the life of Jesus.
    much love,
    Aparna Bansal

    1. Thank you so much, Aparna! I want children and adults alike to enjoy learning about Jesus Christ and the Bible. Many people don’t read the Bible because they don’t understand it, and thus, can’t relate to it. I want learning about Jesus Christ and the Bible to be fun, enjoyable, understandable, and relatable. This world desperately needs Jesus, and if I can use my God-given abilities to bring people to him (all of our gifts are to be used for the glory of God), that’s exactly what I’m going to do! God bless you!

  4. With all the violence that is going on today, this is a message that is needed for the entire world. Sometimes we forget who we were created for, and why it is so important to keep that at the forefront of our well-being on a daily basis.

    I personally believe that He (Yahushua Hamashiach) is getting ready to come back thus the reason that the enemy is causing so much havoc on this earth today. Thank you for such an uplifting message of hope.

    1. Thank you so much for your wonderful comment, David! We are certainly living in the end times right now (we are in the Beginning of Sorrows, and the books of Daniel and Revelation are speaking as loudly as ever), and Satan knows that his time is running out (our Lord and Savior, Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus Christ) is coming back to take his children home and to judge/destroy this wicked world!). This certainly explains all of the violence, hate, chaos, division, perversion, and corruption running rampant in our world today. We have hope, however, as our risen King is coming back for us! Praise Yah! Yah (God) bless you!

  5. Great post and it’s good to read again those bible verses again which really encouraging.

    I like the way you have presented such a great incident with such a simple and comprehensive way that the kids would definitely likes to hear the story and learn more about Jesus.

    And last but not least, on this blog I first time learned about the original name of Jesus and God, which is wonderful and thanks for your hard work to write this article. God bless!!

    1. Thank you so much, Rajratna! I want learning about Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus Christ) and Yah’s (God’s) Holy Word (the Holy Bible) to be as fun, understandable, relatable, and enjoyable as possible, for children and adults alike. We all need the Lord, and I don’t want anything getting in the way of that! Yah (God) bless you!

  6. Wow, this is so wonderful! Spreading the word of God through interesting texts is truly amazing. Thank you for reminding us who God is, our Lord Jesus Christ, and the promises He has given us. We must to listen him and above all to love him. I tremble with happiness when I think of him being resurrected and alive! He watches over us and loves us.
    Continue your wonderful mission.
    All the best and God bless you!

    1. Thank you so much, Danijela! I am filled with overwhelming joy when I think about our risen King, our risen Lord and Savior, the risen Messiah, Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus Christ). When Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus Christ) rose from the dead, he proved that he was Yah (God) in the flesh, as he defeated Satan, Hell, death and the grave in one fell swoop! HalleluYAH! I look forward to his return; I want to dwell with Yahushua Hamashiach (Jesus Christ) in Heaven forever! Yah (God) bless you!
