The Resurrection Season,

Day 32 of the 40 Days our RESURRECTED LORD JESUS spent with His+ disciples in His+ Glorified Body+ !


Then saith HE+ ( the Risen CHRIST) to Thomas,

 Reach hither thy finger,

and behold My+ Hands;


and reach hither thy hand,

and thrust it into My+ Side:


and be not faithless,

but believing.

John 20:27


+  +  +


Behold My+ Hands and My+ Feet,

that it is I+ Myself+:

 Handle ME+, and see;

 for a spirit hath not flesh and bones,

as ye see ME+ have.

Luke 24:39

 +  +  +

 We are INVITED.

 Our LORD JESUS CHRIST invites us to touch HIM+.


After His+ Resurrection, HE+ invited the shell-shocked, unbelieving disciples to TOUCH His+ Glorified, Resurrected Body… that very Body+ they walked along with every day.


In agony they had watched that Body+ being beaten with whips of bone and nail, staggering under the weight of the Cross-beam.


Their senses REELED with the torturing Crucifixion of their SAVIOR+, the ONE+ they had deemed to be The MESSIAH+, the SON+ of GOD.


JESUS CHRIST the LORD invited them to TOUCH His+ now Glorified Body+ , that familiar form which they had all watched DIE under the hands of the rough Roman soldiers !

+  +  +

 We are invited too.


We who struggle with life’s problems are invited to draw near to the RESURRECTED CHRIST and actually touch HIM+.


How do we encounter CHRIST ?

How can we possibly come close enough to touch HIM+ now ?


Isn’t HE+ in Heaven

with The HOLY FATHER ?

 This is how:

 We come close enough to HIM+

to allow HIM+ to touch us


Come unto ME+,

all ye that labor and are heavy laden,

and I+

will give you rest.


Take My+ yoke upon you,

and learn of ME+;


for I+ am meek and lowly in heart:

and ye shall find rest unto your souls.


For My+ yoke is easy,

and My+ burden is light.

Matthew 11: 28-30

 +  +  +


Come, My children,

Enter into My Courts

and stand STILL before ME+.


Set your heart upon ME+.

… and I+ will set My+ Heart upon you.


Close the door to the world.

Close the door to your pressing troubles

And turn your gaze upon ME+

For just one hour of your day…

Alone, before ME+ in Stillness,

Not performing nor studying.


Just sit still beside ME+.  


The STILL WATERS are here,

at this place

 where I+ AM.
