He has rolled back the stone!~Our ideal blessed Perfection is Risen this day.~

Simon Dewey, He Lives, painting

‘He Lives’
 
Painted by Mr. Simon Dewey.
 
~~
 
 
This sort of art, called by some, over-idealized, is very realistic painting, showing a triumphant Christ, is very much disparaged by the Art cognoscenti, but it is very popular, and in fact Simon Dewey is one of the most visible religious artists of the late 20th century.
~~
The painting’s message is strong and direct: Christ is risen, he is our Saviour.
~~
The stone is rolled away, and darkness and death are behind him.
~~
We show today, Easter Sunday, Mr. Simon Dewey’s painting to demonstrate just this:
~~
Jesus is our IDEAL.
~~
Jesus cannot be over-idealized.
~~
Jesus is perfection.
~~
Jesus is:
~~
The IDEAL.
~~
A perfection this morning, now returned to us, who have missed Him so.
~~
Yes, my dear, HE LIVES.
~~
HE LIVES.
~~
The Holy Week through which we have now just come, demonstrates to man all his desperate conceits and frailties.
~~
Last Sunday, Palm Sunday, Jesus came into Jerusalem a HERO.
~~
Within 5 days, the HERO was vilified, condemned, beaten, executed and buried.
~~
Demonstrating these things to us all of us:
~~
His Children.
~~
He asks:
~~
How much is man as a city that is crumbled, broken down and without walls, as:
~~
Man controls not his own spirit?
~~
For:
~~
How weak is Man?
~~
How often does he stumble and stray from the straight and narrow path?
~~
How little does he control his appetites?
~~
How much does he resemble the analogy of the Scriptures that Man is as:
~~
“A city that is crumbled and without walls, as man controls not his own spirit?”
~~
These are the many and myriad lessons of this breathless last week.
~~
And now, in the new week, The Easter Sunday and the Easter Week:
~~
We watch our exemplar, our Blessed Perfection, come back once again into our midst, bringing with him:
~~
The absolutely remarkable message that He has shown the Way, shown to all of us the potentiality to secure for ourselves:
~~
Everlasting Life.
~~
Life Eternal.
~~
Of all the silly, hapless, vanities of man throughout the Ages, taken collectively together, we now see them as nothing.
~~
Trivia.
~~
Idle vanity, when compared to The Holy Week and now, The Easter Sunday:
~~
The Perfection.
~~
Man makes silly noises about seeking the perfectibility and historical progress of man here on this, transitory, earth:
~~
All the while overlooking the Holy week of Jesus which shows the way to Everlasting perfectibility and progress for man.
~~
The toils and strife of this earth do not matter at all.
~~
What matters is the message of Holy Week and now of Easter Herself.
~~
That message alone endures.
~~
That message alone matters.
~~
That message is:
~~
Our Ideal ONE is now Risen and has shown us the way to be PERFECT.
~~
If only we, come, follow HIM home.
~~
This is why the Holy Week and now, today, Easter Sunday morning, is a collective recounting of the only week in the history of man that:
~~
Matters at all.
~~
At all.
~~
We have now seen Perfection and we have seen how we can share in that perfection.
~~
Let us ask ourselves, this Easter Sunday Morning:
~~
Having seen the searing Light of His Perfection and having been offered it ourselves, how could we possibly be satisfied with anything else at all?
~~
How could we be satisfied without HIM?
~~
At all?
~~
With HIM, who could ask for anything more?

"Jean-Marie Le Pen is a friend. He is dangerous for the political set because he's the only one who's sincere. He says out loud what many people think deep down, and what the politicians refrain from saying because they are either too demagogic or too chicken. Le Pen, with all his faults and qualities, is probably the only one who thinks about the interests of France before his own."~~
