Easter Everyday?

500 Witnesses.

Do we know the Lord Jesus as our personal Saviour and the Lord of our New Lives?

Then like those first 500 witnesses, who saw Jesus risen from the dead everyday was Easter for them! Because they made up the foundation of what we today call Ekklesia or Church!

The death and resurrection of the Jewish Messiah made an impact on them, who did not fear or care what the world thought of them! After the empowering at Pentecost fifty days later, they went on to spread and share the Goods News message of the Gospel telling people that if they repented and turned to God their lives would be changed, just like ours?

John 21:17,  Acts 2:22,  4:12,  Romans 5:11, 15,  1 Corinthians 6:11,  2 Corinthians 4:10-11.

The road to Emmaus. Part-Two.

From Moses.

Jesus is walking with them along the road from Jerusalem to Emmaus and He starts to explain to them, starting with Moses all the events of who the Messiah was and what the scriptures (Tanakh/Old Testament) had to say about Him. Luke 24:25-27.

This shows us how we so easily can forget what we claim to know about God and also misinterpret the signs that are right in front of us.

They listened intently to this stranger unaware of who he was. As evening came he was about to leave them, but they invited him to stay with them. Mark 16:12-16.

Christmas. Part-Four.

Jesus the Jewish Messiah and the Saviour of the world is now born. Matthew 1:18-25, Luke 2:6-7.

He was not a helpless babe, his mother the Virgin” went on to have other children with her husband Joseph. Jesus was circumcised eight days after His birth in that stable. Luke 2:21-24. He had to fulfill the conditions of Jewish Law, since he was their promised Messiah.

Many people say ‘why do the Jews, not believe? Some do believe, but meanwhile some Catholic’s rely on infant baptism, conformation and the traditions of the Church, and they continue on in pagan revelry. We need all to come to a personal relationship with Jesus and turn away form Sin. Acts 4:12, John 3:15-21. Romans 3:23, 6:23, 1 John 1:5-10.

Christmas. Part-Three.

The Angels appeared to the shepherds, why?  Because Jesus the Messiah, was the son of David, King of Israel. David was a shepherd boy. Jesus later in His ministry said ‘I Am the good shepherd.’  Luke 2:8-20,  Psalm 78:70-71, John 10:14.

The Fear of God. Part One.

In the past humanity was left to its own devices, to devise it’s own gods and laws to govern the people. When we look at those ancient stone structures that scatter many lands, we wonder what did the people who built those believed in? Leviticus 26:1, Romans 1:22-26, 1 Corinthians 10:20.

God did allow them to create their own ideas and they were enabled to see Him at work in the natural world around them, which if they acknowledged helped them live right lives. But now that time is over, because the Son of God Jesus, the Jewish Messiah and Savior of all men has been revealed. So no-one is without excuse to believe in Him. Acts 4:12, John 3:16-21.

Man once feared the wind, the lightning in the sky, the roaring Sea. But now we need to fear that we will not be cut off from God for eternity.

Resurrection. Part-One.

Peter said ‘The Lord has really risen! Luke 24:34.

The resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Jewish Messiah and the one and only Son of God is the most prolific event in human history. Matthew 28:2-15, Mark 16:1-11, Luke 24:1-12 and John 20:1-18. When Jesus arose from the dead, he did not have another body, it was the same one. The scars and the marks of torture and being nailed to the cross will remain on Him for ever. John 20:26-29, Revelation 1:7. Despite the lies being told ‘that he had not risen,’ there were so many people who claimed that they had seen him.

Good Works.

There is nothing wrong in doing good, but doing the right things and good works will not tally up your points with God to get into His good books or to heaven.  You have to confess that Jesus is the Messiah, that he died on the cross, taking your sins upon his body, rose on the third day and in returning at the end of the age to receive all the believers. 2 Corinthians 7:10.  When we say we are Christians, God expects us to apply what we know of Him. James 1:22.
