Easter .. The Obituary of Jesus 33 AD
The last two weeks we covered Salvation and Forgiveness. If you have not read them, just click on the link provided and review the two articles. I wrote those two articles and want to present them to you before Easter. There are two types of people that will celebrate Easter. One that believes that Jesus has died on the cross for their sins and rose on the third day by the power of the Holy Spirit. The other want Easter eggs and Easter bunnies. Is it a pagan Holiday or a Christian Holiday? Who mixed things up? Read the article I posted on my website. Look at the roots of Easter Is it just the case of believing or not. We have been talking about how important it is to Believe. Look at the following verse.Romans 15:13 (KJV) Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.
Step1 … Believe in the Death, burial and Resurrection.
Step2 … Receive the Holy Spirit by faith.
Step3 … God will fill us with joy and peace with the Holy Spirit.
Easter is the greatest Christian day to celebrate. Our relationship with God is because of the death, burial and ressurection of Jesus We have been blessed since Jesus died on the cross and paid the price for all the sins in the world, Past, Present and Future. That ressurection has allowed us to make peace with God. Remember that Sin had separated us from God until the resurrection.
Romans 5:1 (KJV) Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God throughour Lord Jesus Christ:
Just believe that you will receive the power of the Holy Spirit to live the Christian life.
1 Corinthians 15:1-4 (NKJV) 1 Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, 2 by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you–unless you believed in vain. 3 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures,
Believe today, receive the Holy Spirit and the peace of God will also keep your hearts and minds.
Philippians 4:7 (KJV) And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
