“Grace to you and peace, from Him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven Spirits who are before His throne, and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood— and He has made us to be a kingdom, priests to His God and Father—to Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen. BEHOLD HE IS COMING WITH THE CLOUDS, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over Him. So it is to be. Amen.”
“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”
So what can you say now? Jesus who loves us has released us from our sins by His Blood—Easter is not about the bunny rabbit and eggs whom the world brought to the forefront through deception to keep our children’s eyes off of the cross and the blood shed by Jesus for our sins, and retail who’s millions in sales stuff their registers with money from candy, clothes, and plastic buckets and yard ornaments.
No, no, no; it’s about the Son of God, born of the Virgin Mary by the Holy Spirit and giving up His life by His Blood to release us from our sins and rising again if we believe through faith that God is who He said He is and will reward those who follow His commandments living faithful until the end. These truths must absolutely Be taught and especially to our children and grand children and especially on Easter weekend. Easter egg hunts are fun for the kids but they must understand first that Easter is about Jesus dying and rising again so we too can rise up in the resurrection and live forever with God in heaven.
You’ll notice all through the old testament (old covenant) God was angry many times at mankind and was a God of wrath in many ways and even destroyed mankind in a great flood because of the severe and great wickedness upon the earth, but that all changed with Jesus. All God’s wrath and anger was placed upon Jesus on the cross and after Jesus died and rose again, Gods great anger ceased because the price was paid and the age of grace came about. Now we don’t have to kill bulls and goats and sacrifice to God because Jesus is our sacrifice, our forgiveness, our righteousness. Romans says sin shall not be master over us any longer because of grace. Thank you King Jesus, you are worthy to be praised!
Jesus is coming back and will destroy the wicked and cast them into the lake of fire. He said “You must be born again” that is your spirit must be new and your mind renewed. “ He who believes and is baptized shall be saved Jesus said, does that include YOU? Repent and call on Him even today, even right now, come just as you are and God will clean you up when you surrender to Jesus Christ. He alone is the door, the gate, so go in and find peace and joy and love and eternal life in midst of this sick and sinful generation..and this Easter remember to teach it’s true meaning….
