Peace Be With You

Holy Spirit 5

Awhile back, the angels asked me to post on Sundays about the Gospels. Here is the Gospel of John 20:19-23- with an angel guided message behind it. 


On the evening of that first day of the week,
when the doors were locked, where the disciples were,
for fear of the Jews,
Jesus came and stood in their midst
and said to them, “Peace be with you.”
When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side.
The disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord.
Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you.
As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”
And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them,
“Receive the Holy Spirit.
Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them,
and whose sins you retain are retained.”


This past Sunday we celebrated the Sunday of Pentecost, where we celebrate Jesus sending the Holy Spirit to the disciples, the Counselor, the Great Power from Heaven, and the Promise of the Father. Pentecost is celebrated 50 days after Easter (including Easter Sunday) or seven weeks after Easter Sunday.  Here, the first fruits were given the Holy Spirit through Jesus, who had been glorified by the Father, to send The Spirit of God upon his disciples, from which thousands were converted and anointed with the Holy Spirit. In Jewish tradition, the original Pentecost commemorates God’s giving of the Ten Commandments (to Moses) at Mount Sinai, 49 days after the Exodus. The two celebrations are similar as in the New testament, the Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles and split into fire upon each head, giving them authority over the New Covenant or the New Law, which converted, anointed and baptized hundreds of thousands of people to the new Church, and to the Body of Christ. 

This is not a day just for Christians, but for all to celebrate as God’s love is not measured to just Christians, but to that of all faiths who accept His Word delivered through His Son Jesus Christ. For all have received the Holy Spirit through Christ Jesus. ~the Archangels

Jesus remains with us to this day and this is a reason to rejoice- in Christ. “My Peace be with you” was to help the first fruits out of fear of the Jews, but also to help all who call upon His name. ~ the Angeles

Jesus wants all to live in His peace always. “Peace be with you” was spoken twice to the Apostles [see reference] who Jesus visited, to remind them of the Peace he shared then and now. For Jesus is with us always. ~ (in italics)-The angels
