                                                             SHORT NARRATIVE

                                                                     SCARS

    I cannot prove it anyway, or confirm any source the story I am about to share. Yet the possibility for such an encounter was certainly within the realm of possibility.

    Let’s travel back into time. Just after JESUS has risen from the dead. We know he was seen by at least 500 people. There in lies the possibility for this encounter to take place. During this 40 days, JESUS spent most of his time teaching anyone it would cross his path for He knew time was short. JESUS was always the MASTER OF HIS DOMAIN. This would be no different, except it would have a greater sense of urgency. 

    One day, while JESUS sat at the sea of Galilee, perhaps, watching Peter James and John Fisher. A man walks by and notices the scars Jesus bore ( REMEMBER THOMAS). This particular man was sold into slavery for bills he could not pay. He bore the scars from his slave master. He saw that JESUS bore scars and put two n two together. In his mind Jesus must have been a slave and earned his freedom also.

    The man asks if he may sit down and rest. JESUS seeing an opportunity here,says yes my friend sit down and rest if you stay for in a short time my friends will bring us dinner. So the man sits down and introduces himself as Nigel. JESUS says it is nice to meet you Nigel. The man engaged in small talk,but he really wanted to get to the scars. A little bit into the conversation Nigel makes a statement based on his flawed deductions. He says we have much in common. At this point JESUS has not told Nigel His name. ( remember he his mind made up that JESUS was a poor manager of his money. Perhaps a bad business man. JESUS smiles and says what do we have in common. Nigel remarks……… TO BE CONTINUED

     

                                                          SCARS PART #2 

    JESUS now functioning in the capacity of the risen savior. He know can function as the GOD MAN not just the Man Of GOD. JESUS asks and what is it Nigel you think we have in common? Nigel doesn’t say anything at first he just points to his SCARS and then points to JESES SCARS. He doesn’t ask why JESUS has his SCARS. He then just says to JESUS you must have been a slave and you must have been a terrible business man. Perhaps you were dishonest and was caught. JESUS seems to be amused by the story Nigel was putting out there. Nigel says NO ONE gets that kind of punishment unless you did something bad or while you were a slave, you must have been rebellious. Nigel also continues to spin his flawed perception and tells CHRIST my SCARS are bed. Your my friend are much worse then mine. He deducts from that and comes up with you must have been extremely dishonest and or illegal unethical and quite likely immoral. Nigel isn’t stopped by JESUS so he keeps evaluating JESUS.perhaps you had a terribly mean master. He concludes that even with such a master you must have been a serious offender of the law. 

    JESUS sits and after that horrible misunderstanding what JESUS must have done. JESUS doesn’t get angry. But rather positions himself to show Nigel was the most important thing to him at this moment in time. Nigel begins his explanation of how he got his SCARS. Nigel obviously upset with his plight says I hate these SCARS as they will remain with me forever. He says like you I’d do anything to get rid of these SCARS. He goes on to say these SCARS will be constant reminder of our transgressions. Mostly the shame my family will have to go through. What is really upsetting that my children’s children will have to carry this with them. Nigel deduces we are better men now but that choice that put us here will always be a symbol of our wicked ways. Nigel tells JESUS if possible I’d get rid of these SCARS for both us, for with these we have NO FUTURE! 

    It’s at this point JESUS Speaks up. JESUS looks at Nigel and says…… TO BE CONTINUED 

    This is the conclusion of let’s say chapter 2  There will be one more chapter and this story I’m blest to have you continue to read the things I write. I will be back in next few day  Until then May our LORD richly shower down upon you HIS LOVE   

    GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD 

     

                                                             SCARS PART #3 

     

    IT’S AT THIS POINT, WHERE NIGEL IS CAUGHT IN THE PHYSICAL REALM. THIS WAS A COMMON WAY JESUS INTERACTED WITH PEOPLE. HE WOULD LET THEM TELL HIM ABOUT THEIR PHYSICAL REALM ISSUES. THEN HE WOULD MOST TIMES IN HIS ENCOUNTERS HEAL THEIR PHYSICAL CONDITION. HE WOULD DO THIS FOR THEY HAD TRIED EVERYTHING INCLUDING THE RELIGIOUS SET FOR HEALING. THEREFORE IN THEIR EYES IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE.  AND WE ALL KNOW HOW GOD DEALS WITH IMPOSSIBLE. IN THIS CASE THE PHYSICAL REALMM DID HAVE SOME TO DO WITH PAIN DISCOMFORT,EMOTIONALLY DEALING WITH NOW BEING N OUTCAST. HENCE NIGELS SENSE OF WORTH ADDED UP TO NOTHING.  

    AFTER HEARING NIGEL OUT, JESUS BEGINS TO SPEAK (YET JESUS’S WORDS ALWAYS MINISTER) JESUS CALMLY AND LOVINGLY SAYS TO NIGEL WE HAVE NOTHING IN COMMON. NIGEL WITH A PERPLEXED LOOK ON HIS FACE POINTS TO HIS SCARS THEN JESUS SCARS. JESUS SMILES AND SAID TRULY THESE SCARS REPRESENT SHAME. HOWEVER NOT AS YOU THINK MY FRIEND. THESE SCARS ARE FROM THE PENALTY OF SIN, BUT NOT MINE SIN YOUR SIN NOT MY SHAME BUT YOURS. NOW NIGEL IS TOTALLY LOST. (I HAVE SAID THAT YOU AS A PERSON SHARING THE GOSPEL WITH SOMEONE THAT YOU HAVE TO ALLOW THEM TO GET LOST BEFORE THEY WILL LOOK FOR A WAY OUT) JESUS TELLS NIGEL THAT THESE SCARS REPRESENT FREEDOM, FROM SIN AND THE BONDAGE OF SIN. THESE SCARS GIVE YOU LIFE ETERNAL. 

    NIGEL EYES WELL UP AS HE CRASPS THE MAGNITUDE OF THE MOMENT. THEN JESUS TAKES NIGELS HAND AND SAYS IF YOU UNDERSTAND THE *RIDDLE OF THE SCARS* AND RECEIVE ITS SAVING GRACE YOU WILL GAIN ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN. YOUR SHAME WILL BE TAKEN AWAY YOUR SINS BLOTTED OUT NEVER TO BE HELD AGAINST YOU. THESE SCARS WILL SET YOU FREE FROM EVERYTHING THAT ENSLAVES YOUR SPIRIT. I WAS SOLD FOR THE PRICE OF A SLAVE AND ALLOWED THE TORMENTER TO INFLICT THESE SCARS ON ME. NIGEL REMEMBER WHEN YOU SAID YOU WERE ASHAMED OF YOUR SCARS. I AM GLAD I HAVE THEM. IT SHOWS THE DEPTH OF MY LOVE. NIGEL ASKS JESUS SO YOU CAN GIVE HIM THAT FREEDOM? YES I CAN JUST AS EASY AS I CAN DO THIS. AT THAT VERY SECOND ALL NIGEL’S SCARS WENT AWAY. NIGEL BREAKS DOWN IN TEARS. HE SAYS TO JESUS I UNDERSTAND. JESUS SMILES AND SAYS I KNOW.  

    THIS IS THE CONCLUSION TO THE NARRATIVE SCARS. I AM EXCITED HOW MANY HAVE READ THESE POSTS  THERE ARE MANY NIGEL’S OUT THERE. SOME OF THEM ARE WAITING FOR US TO SHOW UP (DEVINE APPOINTMENTS) AND INTRODUCE THEM TO OUR JESUS. THE ONLY QUESTION IS WILL WE BE AT THAT DEVINE APPOINTMENT. I AM STILL WAITNG ON THE LORD FOR OUR NEXT TOPIC. HOPE TO MEET YOU THERE  UNTIL THEN GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD
