HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU WILL BE RESURRECTED?

There is only twenty nine more days to Easter! This is a good time to ask why Easter is so important. Is it special to you or is it just another religious day to be observed? Easter has an important message for everyone, whether they attend church or not. Those who have been raised in a Christian home have known about Easter all their lives but many people do not know what Easter is all about and what it means to them. So why do we observe it? Is there a special message about Easter?

Easter is a time when we give special worship to Jesus Christ for something He did! We celebrate Easter because it gives us assurance that when we die we will go to heaven to be with Jesus. Jesus did something very special after He was crucified on the cross. He had been buried in the tomb for three days and then rose again to life and ascended to the throne of God. Our Savior lives!

John 10:15, 17-18, As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. “Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again. No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father.”

Jesus had the power to lay His life down and take it back up again. He specifically came to the earth to take on the flesh of a man for this enormously important purpose.

The Apostle Paul explains why He had to rise from the grave! Jesus was the most valuable to the Father so He was the only one who could do what He did!  He conquered death and made it possible for mankind to be resurrected to eternal life. He became the first born!

Romans 8:29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.

By His unselfish act of dying for us on the cross and then rising from the dead, Christ made it possible for us to live for eternity. His resurrection confirms our resurrection to be assured. That is how important it is!

1 Corinthians 15:3-4, 14, 20, For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.  And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty. But now Christ is risen from the dead!

Read 1Corintians 15 and be filled with the Truth of God what Easter is all about! When Sunday, April 1, 2018, gets here, make it a point to attend a church service near you and celebrate this most important occasion in all our lives.

Dear heavenly Father, please hear my prayer for all who are lost without Jesus in their lives. I pray that you will convict the hearts of those who read this Easter message and bring them to understanding of the Truth of salvation through Jesus Christ. In the name of Jesus, amen!

FACE THE HATE

Truth-the-new-hate-speech

There was a young man filled with faith preaching about Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit in every public place he could find. People found his wisdom and the spirit of which he spoke irresistible.

John 3:34 For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.

But some people couldn’t stand what he was preaching because what he was saying convicted their conscience and made them mad.

Romans 11:8 (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.

They got so carried away that they mobbed him and took him before the court, they produced witnesses who lied about him and accused him of making terrorist threats such as saying their religious temple would be torn down.

Mark 13:9 But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them.

As they looked at him he didn’t appear to be worried at all. If anything, he looked more confident and filled with faith more than ever. He begin to preach to them and point out their sinful ways showing them how much they could be blessed if they would only turn to God and obey Him.

Romans 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

But when they heard what he had to say they were cut to the heart and their faces became terrible to look at as hate poured out of them.

Jude 1:4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

And he said:” Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God”. The mob started screaming at the top of their lungs to shut him out. The mob had had enough and took Stephen and killed him.

Romans 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder.

This is happening over and over again in China, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and India today! This ugly hatred is slowly growing in the United States. It is now a hate crime to preach the truth on some subjects of the Holy Bible, the foundation of Christianity.

We need to rally behind the martyr Stephen and preach the gospel in the face of adversity. Be filled with the spirit of faith!

Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Give God the glory! AMEN!
