Worthy is the LAMB+... worthy is the LAMB+... worthy is the LAMB+ that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing! Blessing and honor and glory and power be unto HIM that sitteth on the throne and unto The LAMB+ for ever and ever. Amen.

Order of the GOOD SHEPHERD+
The Resurrection Season,
Day 32 of the 40 Days our RESURRECTED LORD JESUS spent with His+ disciples in His+ Glorified Body+ !
Then saith HE+ ( the Risen CHRIST) to Thomas,
Reach hither thy finger,
and behold My+ Hands;
and reach hither thy hand,
and thrust it into My+ Side:
and be not faithless,
+ + +
Behold My+ Hands and My+ Feet,
that it is I+ Myself+:
Handle ME+, and see;
for a spirit hath not flesh and bones,
as ye see ME+ have.
+ + +
We are INVITED.
Our LORD JESUS CHRIST invites us to touch HIM+.
His+ Resurrection, HE+ invited the shell-shocked, unbelieving disciples
to TOUCH His+ Glorified, Resurrected Body... that very Body+ they
walked along with every day.
In agony they had watched that Body+ being beaten with whips of bone and nail, staggering under the weight of the Cross-beam.
senses REELED with the torturing Crucifixion of their SAVIOR+, the ONE+
they had deemed to be The MESSIAH+, the SON+ of GOD.
JESUS CHRIST the LORD invited them to TOUCH His+ now Glorified Body+ , that familiar form which they had all watched DIE under the hands of the rough Roman soldiers !
+ + +
We are invited too.
We who struggle with life's problems are invited to draw near to the RESURRECTED CHRIST and actually touch HIM+.
How do we encounter CHRIST ?
How can we possibly come close enough to touch HIM+ now ?
