Dish collector

I have become a dish collector once again. Just get paid for collecting dishes after people have finished their meals. I find it to be quite enjoyable just walking around and collecting plates. Haha. Simple task. The best thing is that i get paid $10/hour, when others do not pay as much. Time to be the mighty dish collector again.

Anyway a few days ago, i got this theory. The reason i called it a theory is because i do not know whether is it right or wrong. Only God knows the answer.

45 Now from the sixth hour until the ninth hour there was darkness over all the land. 46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”[k]
47 Some of those who stood there, when they heard that, said, “This Man is calling for Elijah!” 48 Immediately one of them ran and took a sponge, filled it with sour wine and put it on a reed, and offered it to Him to drink.
49 The rest said, “Let Him alone; let us see if Elijah will come to save Him.”
50 And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit.

As we can see that right before Jesus died on the cross, He cried out “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”  What is the reason why God has forsaken Jesus at that time? Is it that He cannot bear to look at the death of His Son? Or is there another reason?

When i checked out webster for the meaning of ‘forsaken’ it means to renounce or turn away from entirely. My guess is that at that point of time, God has turned His face entirely away from Jesus. Jesus was without sins for the whole of His life, until the point on the cross before He asked why God has forsaken Him. It was at that point of time whereby the sins of all mankind from the past to the present and into the future has been laid on Him. The sins were so much that God had to turn His face away from His own Son, because God abhors sins. I do not that there is any words that can describe the multitude of sins that Jesus had to carry.

Well, of course, this is just a theory of mine. For me, i do not need to know whether is it right or wrong. All i need is to feel how much Jesus has done for me on the cross. To die on the cross in a painful manner while His Father was looking away from Him. The pain of not able to see your loved ones when one dies is really …

Schedule for the next few days will be taking pictures for Danny and Venice engagement party on sat and visiting Xavier they all on sun. If possible, i do wish to join them. That is another question waiting for God to answer. Till then…
