CHRIST, THE RULER OF ALL…

It is two thousand years since Christ walked over this earth. He remains to this day a profound Figure, about whom people must make a decision. Who is Christ? As we go through life, we are forced to come up with an answer to that question.
At the time Jesus lived, there were two verdicts about Him. The first is that Christ is God. He was worshiped. The Wise Men worshiped Him. After He stilled the storm at sea, the Apostles worshiper Him, saying “Of a truth You are the Son of God…”
The second verdict is that Christ was a mere man, indeed, a deceiver. After the death of the Lord, when Pharisees went to Pilate to ask for a guard over the tomb, they said: “Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again.” 
Our answer is the answer of the ancient Creed: Jesus Christ is “Very God of Very God, begotten, not made; of one essence with the Father…Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven, and was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, and was made man…”
Christ accepted designation as God. Peter once told Him: “You are the Christ the Son of the Living God.”He claimed Godhead – when Philip asked Him to “show us the Father,” Jesus replied, “…he that has seen Me has seen the Father…”
Finally, our Lord’s life testifies to His divinity. His teachings, His miracles, His character, His dealings with people, all reflect the grandeur of Godhead. Yes, Jesus was God and Man. 

ХРИСТОС ВОСКРЕС!

“Нехай воскресне Бог, – і розсипляться вороги Його! Пасха священна сьогодні нам з’явилася! Пасха дивна, свята! Пасха таємна! Пасха найславніша! Пасха – Христос – Визволитель! Пасха найчесніша! Пасха Велика! Пасха для вірних! Пасха, що двері райські нам відкриває! Пасха, що освячує всіх вірних!” (Стихира Великодьої Утрені.)

” Let God arise, and let His enemies be scattered.

The Holy Pascha is revealed unto us today, the Pascha new and Holy, the Pascha mystical, the Pascha All-honourable, the Pascha – Christ the Deliverer, the Pascha-Spotless, the Great Pascha, the Pascha of the faithful, the Pascha which opened unto us the gates of Paradise, the Pascha which sanctified all the faithful.” (Stichera from Easter Matins.)

With this Great Day of Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ – we greet His All-Holiness Bartholomew I, Archbishop of Constantinople and Ecumenical Patriarch. His Eminence Yurij, Archbishop of Winnipeg and the Central Eparchy, Metropolitan of Canada. His Grace Bishop Ilarion, Bishop of Edmonton and the Western Eparchy, the Priesthood, our faithful and all the people of good will. May the Resurrected Lord Jesus Christ resurrect our feelings towards our ancestry on this Great Day and towards all people of good will.

CHRIST IS RISEN!  INDEED, HE IS RISEN!
