Repeatedly we go through life being bombarded by what I refer to as Cultural Normality. The normality of the ultimate faded hero. We have grown to believe or to know the forced ripe heroes that have done nothing but being rebellious to early laws and fought a battle for one particular kind of people and that is their very own, Either Black or White, Jews or Gentiles. But when you truely observe this perplexity, it is revealed that, the belief of a hero is to be prejudiced and to maintain that outright law of punishing the villain, while they fought for the good, the good being their people. Nothing about the law have changed, except for equal rights to do that which was already existed.
It being that time of the year, October 15th, 2018, I wondered to myself, every year I have placed the deceased on a pedestal and have placed this huge focus on them, ‘A moment of remembrance and gratitude for heroes,’ they said, so I asked, ‘Why are they heroes, if they died?’
As I looked closer, I asked myself, what is the definition of an hero and what exactly are the characteristics of an hero?’ I looked to the oxford dictionary as I vehemently skipped through the pages and have found that an hero means, ‘A person who is admired for their courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities.‘ Then I understood because of this low and achievable standards have been made available to mankind, to be considered an hero, almost every and anybody could be placed on this pedestal platform. Then I looked at the Characteristics of an hero. An hero bears witness with these characteristics such as; Courage, Selflessness, humility, Patience, Caring, wisdom and the ability to empower a nation. When I look at the Jamaican heroes; Nanny of the Maroon, Paul Bogle, Marcus Garvey just to name a few, they all encapsulate the characteristics of an hero. The New Zealand heroes such as: Maurice Wilkins, Earnest Rutherford and Kate Shepherd all have done some amazing jobs on earth too, even the American heroes: George Washington, Mark Twain even Henry Ford is considered an hero of such examples. When I thoroughly research the other continents like Australia, Asia, Europe, Antarctica and Africa etc. They all bear the same sequence, a number of accomplished empowered people who had the annointing to fight for what they believe in for their own people.
So then it came to me, all these people did so much amazing things and their stories are engraved in the hearts of many world wide and not only that the History have been taught to almost all nation. With that being said we are told, ‘We must know our history, we must know and appreciate the fight of our ancestors and we become very passionate about that. The truth is, though I respect the cause some have fought for and the perseverance and strength they possessed, I absolutely cannot get over the fact that they all died. What this simply means is that any local, any human being can be a socalled hero based on the change they anchor. I cannot meditate on a deceased person who carries DNA of a normal human being. Everyone in most countries respect these heroes so much that they create and legalized a special day in honouring them for their works. I looked at that notion and thought to myself, ‘wow,’ Where is that special day designed solely for Jesus Christ who have been crucified innocently for a great cause to remove the charges from our lives, to free us from our sins? And the amazing thing about that is though he died, on the third day he rose, Jesus Christ is not dead, he is alive.
When I have researched his DNA, it is not that of a human, no man can phatom the mystery that surrounds it. When I observed his works, no local hero can attest to the works of Jesus Christ. He destroyed devils, he commanded demons to flee, he separated the Red Sea, he confuses Satan and his devil worshippers, he made the blind to see, he is the only hero that never killed a villain, that laid his life down to be crucified for the very villains that crucified him, Glory to God he rose on the third day, he made the deaf to hear, he made the lamed to walk, he made the dumb to talk, he delivered those imprisoned by leprosy, he casteth out fear, he multipled food when there was yet little, he rose the dead to life, he changes laws and systems, he changes thought processes and frontal lobes and gives it the ability to operate in its divine order, he grants life, he de-throwns Lucifer and commanded Satan according to his purpose. He taught the universe of life without being taught, his Bachelor, Doctorate and PHD is like no other, it is held on the high thrown of God seated amongst Heavenly things that cannot be traced or copied by no devil. No local hero could sustain that power. If Jesus Christ is more than qualified to do all these miracles and all these great and mighty works, then the ideas of emancipating and establishing independence and to win wars and stop wars and gain high academic accomplishments is like killing an ant. He designs the very ant, he made the very ideology of emancipation and independence, so why is he not being seen as the ultimate hero?
His name should be every where, his teachings should be meditated on, his life should be treasured and the price he paid should be engraved deep in our hearts. Jesus Christ is not only Lord and Saviour, he is not only King of Kings and Lord of Lords, he is the Hero of all heroes. No foreign god can take his place, no locality can overshadow him, no laws can bury him, Jesus Christ is the ULTIMATE HERO.
