As I close my eyes and drift away to a land where there is love, health, peace and blessings. I wanted to take the time to think and reflect; particularly with regards to my previous thoughts.
The second coming of Jesus is a point that should strive to unite not only the two major religions, but also those under the umbrella of the patriotic father - Abraham. Whilst the idea of the second coming is a moment for unifying religions, as well as deep reflection. I began to think about what will happen next? There are of course many ideas posed by the religions themselves, but I simply stated: the unfolding of the events are really in God's hands. In a similar way - we can think about our own life, or the course of our human life.
What we desire and hope to achieve. Some say fate, kismet, fortune - but truly we can also be reflective and say that our life is in our hands, or even Gods Hands = Human Hands. Life is not merely a simple quest of what we ourselves want. Although we hope it can be. As our goals are what we desire. But it is the intersections / interactions, that also inter-play, with what we desire and hope to achieve. For the who believe in: God / higher source / higher consciousness, will also understand the idea: Our Hands = God's Hands.
We ourselves contain a spirit that was breathed within us. God's spirit. So maybe we could even say: a second coming is already manifesting itself through the human spirit? Spirt of God. As God himself wants to see how we humans will traverse the Earth, desire to achieve what God has placed within us, and how we treat our fellow humans.
Lamb of God
As I have been reflective of the unification of the major faiths in terms of Jesus' second coming, I also begin to think about Abraham's sacrifice, also known as "The Binding" in Hebrew. This sacrifice is is celebrated by Muslims with Eid-UL-Adha. A major part of the celebration is to distribute meat to the poor, needy, family, friends and relatives. There is some confusion as to exactly what animal was slaughtered, but the idea of a sacrificial animal, further made me think about a reference to Jesus - who is very often referred to as the Lamb of God, and it is the hymn that is sung as the holy Eucharist is remembered.
It is with this note I offer all who are celebrating or witnessing the celebrations of Eid-UL-Adha, Eid Mubarak! Happy Eid!
