Today is DAY 30 of the “40 days and nights” Our Risen LORD JESUS CHRIST spent with His+ Disciples, coming and going among them, teaching them those things concerning the Kingdom of GOD, opening unto them the Scriptures concerning HIMSELF+.
Can we just IMAGINE how filled with JOY and HOPE His+ followers were… those same ones who had heard HIM+ teach, who had walked with HIM+ daily, and who saw HIM+ die ?
Forty Days and Nights are a LONG TIME for our Resurrected LORD JESUS to spend here on earth, appearing at will behind closed and locked doors, disappearing at will , and even eating… to the awe of His+ Disciples.
We have only come to Day 30 yet from the Glorious Resurrection Day, counting down to ASCENSION DAY. Here is a laud with which to worship Our Risen LORD:
A SONG to The LAMB+
(Revelation 4:11, 5: 9-10, 13 )
Splendor and honor and kingly power
are YOURS by Right, O LORD our GOD,
For You created everything that is,
and by Your will they were created
and have their being;
And Yours by right, O LAMB+ that was slain,
for with Your Blood You have redeemed for GOD ,
from every family, languages, people, and nation,
a Kingdom of Priests to serve our GOD.
And so, to HIM Who sits upon the Throne
and to CHRIST the LAMB+,
be worship and praise,
dominion and splendor,
for ever and for evermore.
(BCP , Morning Prayer II, pg 93-94)
