For This I Was Chosen

For This I Was Chosen

The eternal message of Jesus to us is: “Because I live, you will live also… I am the light of the world…You are the light of the world… let your light shine… Lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age.” He spoke of His mission from the Cross, yet Bible translators have misinterpreted His words.

Most of us have been told that Jesus cried out from the Cross, “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” Thanks to the late Syrian scholar George Lamsa, we have learned the original translation is incorrect. Jesus’ native tongue was Aramaic – His words from the cross were in His native tongue. George Lamsa’s family spoke Aramaic, and he writes that Jesus’ words – “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani” translates to “My God, my God, for this I was chosen!”

It is important that we hear this rather than the translation we originally believed to be true! The Holy Presence within us would never forsake us! The Holy Presence is always with us in good times and times of trials and troubles. Always! Jesus agreed to undergo His crucifixion and resurrection three days later, to prove to everyone that His teachings about eternal life were true. Have a blessed love-filled Easter, dear friends.
