Mary Magdalene and The Miracle of the Red Egg

A biblical Christian testimony concerning Mary Magdalene says that she was a woman of social status and wealth. Following Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection, she used her position to gain an invitation to a banquet given by Emperor Tiberius Caesar.

When she met him, she held a plain white egg in her hand and exclaimed “Christ is risen!” Caesar laughed, and said that Christ rising from the dead was as likely as the egg in her hand turning red.

Before he finished speaking, the egg in her hand indeed turned bright red, and she cried “Christ is risen, for Jesus has burst forth from the tomb”. And she continued proclaiming the Gospel to the entire imperial house. This miracle turned many of them to Christ at that time.

Today, many Eastern Orthodox Christians end the Easter service by sharing bright red eggs and proclaiming to each other, “Christ is risen!” The eggs represent new life, and Christ bursting forth from the tomb. This began the tradition of coloring Easter eggs.

Jesus saith unto her, ‘touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father; but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God and your God’. Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord and that he had spoken these things unto her” (Jn20:17-18).
Mary Magdalene appears in all of the Gospel accounts of the events surrounding the Ressurection. Because Mary reported the good news of the Ressurection to the disciples.
Mary Magdalen is often represented as a Christian woman , with flowing hair, and holding her ointment-pot.
After the Resurrection, Jesus’ followers, Philip, Lazarus, Mary Magdalen, Joseph of Arimathea were put to sea in a rudderless ship to be left to drown – but the ship came to land at Marseilles Mary Magdalen became a missionary preacher while Joseph sailed further to Britain, Mary is said to have stayed in France.

Jesus Saviour of world

“And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not, for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.”{John 12 v 47}.

Jesus Christ did not come to this world to judge us, He came to be our Saviour. God looked on this sinful world, and He knew that only by sending His Son Jesus to this earth could anyone be saved. Jesus is holy, perfect and good, He came willingly to die in our place, a sacrifice without spot or blemish, so that if we ask Him to forgive us our sins, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness, He will forgive us and cleanse us so that we can go to heaven. Today Jesus Christ is your Saviour, but tomorrow He will be your judge.

“For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgement unto the Son,”

{John 5 v 22}.

Jesus has gone back to heaven with God the Father and the door to salvation is open to us. But one day soon Jesus will return to this earth with His angels and this time He will not come to save the world, but to judge the world.

Time is short, Jesus is coming back, the Bible says, “today is the day of salvation.” Make sure that you have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour of your life, tomorrow may be too late. Today, Jesus is stretching out His hand to you, and He is saying, “Come.” You can accept Jesus, or you can reject Jesus, but be sure of one thing, He is coming soon.

The Gospel of Mary

“Peter said to Mary, my “Sister, we know that the Savior loved you more than the rest of women. Tell us the words of the Savior which you remember which you know but we do not, nor have we heard them.” Mary answered and said, “What is hidden from you I will proclaim to you.”

But Jesus Saved Us

“ That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world,”

{Ephesians 2 v 12}.

What a sorry picture, but this was the state of us before Jesus saved us. We were living in this world without Christ, we knew nothing about God’s promises in the Bible, we were in a hopeless situation and living without God in our lives. But Jesus saved us…….

The scripture goes on to say in verse 13, “But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.”

We were far from God, living our own lives, and doing whatever we wanted, living lives full of darkness and sin. But Jesus saved us, He died in pain and agony for us on that cross at Calvary, He took away all our sins and washed us clean with His precious blood. And now when God see’s us, He doesn’t see our sins, only the blood of Jesus. We have been forgiven all our sins because of the blood that Jesus shed for us at Calvary.

And now we have a loving heavenly Father who takes care of us and looks after our every need. We have God’s Word the Bible, full of promises for us, helping and guiding us through every situation in life. We have a whole family of Christian brothers and sisters all over the world, to help and encourage us.

And we have life everlasting now and throughout eternity where we will live with Jesus, heirs of the Father and joint heirs with the Son. We have so much to thank and praise our Lord for, He is surely worthy of all honour and glory, praise His Holy name. “But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.”

Only Believe

The Bible says, “And all things whatsoever ye ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive,” {Matthew 21 v 22}. So, sometimes why don’t we receive the things that we ask for in our prayers? God’s Word is truth, and you can depend on it. So, what happened?

The scripture says we can have anything if we believe, and so many times we just don’t believe. We may think that we do, and we may try hard to believe, but sometimes we just don’t. Or, maybe we believe for a while, and as time goes by we give up.

If we find it hard to believe then just ask Jesus for more faith. {Mark 9 v 24} …. “Lord, I believe; Help thou mine unbelief.” Jesus will get rid of all our unbelief and give us more faith, just ask Him. We must be steadfast, we must not waiver, we must continue in faith, until we receive the answer to our prayers.

Our God is a mighty God and He can do anything. There is nothing too hard for the Lord, God is everywhere, He see’s everything, and He hears your hearts cry. Victory will come, if you don’t give up.

Psalm 78 v 41 says, “yea, they turned back and tempted God and limited the Holy One of Israel.” Don’t give up or limit God, our God is able to do anything and work that miracle for you and answer your prayer,…. If you only believe.   by Diane Bolitho

Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair; and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.’ (John – Chapter 12: 3)

  1. Indeed, I have just taken away by the sentence, ” Jesus Came did not come to Judge Us, but He came to be our Saviour” These words soothen my troubled mind and made my heart calm. Thanks.

    • Yes Jesus came to be our Saviour, and He does soothe our troubled minds. God bless in Jesus always.
