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?

Resurrection Power.

Rising with Jesus.

it is said that not many ‘Christians today believe that Jesus actually rose from the dead, but if He did not then we cannot claim a faith-trust in Him and thus we have no promise of eternal salvation?

Jesus did rise and was seen by over 500 people, apart from His Disciples over the forty-day period until His Ascension back to Heaven! Baptism allows us the example of Jesus rising from the grave, but child baptism has no power because we are not at that time conscience of our sins?

It is only later on when we develop that we start to see our failures and if we repent and turn to God, believers baptism will be of great value to both us and all who witness our conversion-born again transformation!

John 11:25,  Acts 1:22,  4:37,   Romans 6:5, 1 Corinthians 15:12-13,  1 Peter 1:3.

Partakers. One.

Power and Service.

God has allowed us to join with Him in displaying His power and serving Him. This is not given to unbelievers, only those called through faith, forgiveness, repentance and His kindness or Mercy.

Theios from the Strong’s Greek G2304 Gives us the sense that God is Devine, Divinity.

We are allowed to share in His work of preaching, teaching and speaking the Gospel Good News of Jesus everyday. God in choosing us wants us to a people of valour maturity and living in the victory of the death and resurrection of His Son Jesus!

Forty-Days. Part-One.

From the resurrection to the Acension.

First Witnesses.

Soldiers had been placed at the tomb where Jesus was buried, the first to see the resurrection of Jesus was those soldiers guarding the tomb. Early in the morning a Angel came down from Heaven and rolled that massive stone away.

The soldiers took fright seeing the bright light and what was happening they froze on the spot and later fled into Jerusalem to report these tremendous events.

Matthew 28:2-4, 1 Peter 1:12.

He has Arisen. Part-Two.

Witnesses.

The amazing fact about the resurrection of Jesus was that well over five-hundred people saw Him. From His own Disciples and followers to Romans soldiers and strangers going about their daily lives.

The Romans recorded these reports methodically, wither they believed them or not. Jesus would spend forty days on earth, before he ascended back into Heaven with the promise of His final return.
