"The Simplistic but Powerful Message of Easter!"

There are a plethora of things that one could say concerning Easter.  There is much that has been shared pertaining to Easter and the Resurrection of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Regardless of the vast amount of information that one may obtain (and a good biblical understanding should be sought by all) there are a few simple realities that we should never lose sight of.

 

1. Easter, more in particular, the Resurrection of Jesus "is" a death defying "FACT!" 

" We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands."             Mark 14:58 

 

"Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up."  John 2:19

 

2.  The stone wasn't rolled away to let Jesus OUT, but to let us COME IN!  

 

And when we come to Jesus, He comes into our hearts, and removes the Stones of Bitterness, Envy, Strife, Rebellion, Doubt, Disappointment, Disgrace, Lack, Hatred, and the contamination of SIN.

 

Just as the Centurion guards that kept watch over tomb fell faint as dead men when the Glorious Resurrection occurred, so shall all those things that seek to remain locked within us, Bitterness, Envy, Strife, Rebellion, Doubt, Disappointment, Disgrace, Lack, Hatred, and all manner Evil and the contamination of SIN. Because when these stones are rolled away, the LOVE of God through Christ enters in and we are thus partakers of Jesus' Resurrection.

 

5: For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
6: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
7: For he that is dead is freed from sin. 
(Romans 6:5-7)

 

17: Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
18: And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
19: To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 
(2 Corinthians 5:17-19)

 

Therefore, we can now come boldly before the throne of God and know...

"all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us" 2 Corinthians 1:20.

 

This Easter spend time in Thanksgiving, Rejoicing, Reflection, and Reverberating the True Love and Passion of Christ (The Book Version, AKA The BIBLE!) to all that is without; and may you always know and never, ever stop telling, living, and sharing with a dying humanity, the living reality... of Our Risen Savior!

 

"For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:" Job19:25.

 

    Be Blessed and Have Superfantastic Day!
