UNDERSTAND TRUE MOURNING AND LONELINESS WITHOUT CHRIST
All I Need Series Inspired By The Holy Spirit, Written by: Theressa Lindsey
The day of mourning is observed by many religions. It is to commemorate the day after Christ’s crucifixion; the day the followers of Christ found themselves without the presence of their Saviour. Their thoughts of what
should have happened where shattered and their thoughts of hope all gone; alone in a confused and saddened state.
However, it is hard to mourn like it is a defeated day! That is not to say you should not mourn or observe the day in remembrance of what happened to Christ; by all means the thought of being without the Saviour is more than we would ever want to consider and to assume Satan defeated Jesus is overwhelming. But he didn’t, Christ won, and the Jesus wants us to remember His victory!
Every Christian before salvation lived without hope, and all who have not yet received Him are living without hope. We all have had times in our lives when we thought and lived as though Satan had won the battle and we were
So why is it hard for me to mourn over the so called defeat by the devil? Because of all the evidence of the victory that Christ won that day?
The Bible tells us to focus on Jesus and if we are not careful we will spend our whole day focusing on the fact that Jesus died and miss all that happened through His death and even miss the His resurrection. It is a fact there are religions that teach on Jesus death and burial and miss the fact of the resurrection and ascension.
Did you know that without the complete finished work of Christ; we should be mourning; because there would be no way of salvation, God’s complete Will, would not have been done?
There needs to be a rude awakening in the world today; Jesus Christ is the RISEN Saviour and Salvation is in Him and NO other, regardless who is teaching and what they are teaching you cannot take the truth out of the scriptures. That truth is Jesus is the only way to heaven; I didn’t say it God did.
John 14:6 (KJV) Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Since Jesus is the Risen Saviour and I have accepted Christ and He now lives within my heart and I know the rest of the story; my desire is to rejoice and tell others about what He did so they can come to know Him as well and that they can rejoice in the resurrection of Christ also.
There is a world of lonely people out there who need Jesus and will go to Hell without Him. Our mourning should be for their souls and our desire to reach them for Christ not for the death of our Saviour who is risen, alive and well in heaven on the right hand of the Father.
It should be our prayer: Lord Jesus; I am so thankful You are THE “Risen Saviour”, thank You for giving Your life for me, help me to have a heart for the souls of the lost like You do. Lord Jesus I yield my life to You, use me as You see fit. In Jesus Name, AMEN.
Psalms 126:5-6 (KJV) They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.  He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.
