Easter is more than just a Story! From the Elder: The Old Church of God of the New Covenant Heb. 8:1-13- Jer. 31:31- 1Cor. 1:2- Gal. 1:13- Eph. 2:15-21- Heb. 9:10- Heb. 10:7-2Cor. 5:19- 1 Cor. 15:9- the church people one can read about in the scriptures.
Easter has changed the world, because it has the savior, Jesus Christ, as the one and only Son of God, as the only Lamb, as the only way to heaven, as John 3:16 tells us He is.

We should have eggs for the children, and lots of candy, but tell them, He is risen!
“He is not here; for He is risen …” is to be told today just as it was back then.
Matthew 28:6.
These momentous words spoken by an angel on Easter Sunday morning are some of the most significant ever spoken. Jesus Christ, the Son of Man, had indeed died, but had conquered death! An eternal, shining, new day of hope had dawned for all those who believe in Him. These Bible verses show what Easter means for each of us, personally:

This Jesus came in the flesh, was Human, but did not sin, He is that person of John 1:1-4- Gen. 1:1.

Easter is of Biblical Origin, because it is all about the savior and He is Jesus who is the Christ.
There is some disagreement about the exact days of the week, when Jesus was placed in the tomb, because of the Lord ship men, who want to replace God and Jesus as the Christ. But, the Bible says Jesus entered Jerusalem and was greeted by cheering crowds on a Sunday, and it was in the year 30 A.D. (Matthew 21:1-11, Mark 11:1-10, Luke 19:29-44, John 12:12-19).

Points to think on!
Men want power over others.
We all have to ask ourselves, how come the men say that the bible is wrong and they are not.
We should always ask where did you get your information from, if there is something wrong with what the bible says.
The scriptures say that God is not like a man in that He should tell us a lie, as we read in Numbers 23:19.
We should always ask the pastor this, Is the Bible the Word of God? A first step in answering the question is to ask what the Bible claims about itself. The question matters because, if it is the Word of God, no other source of truth should come close in claiming our attention.
We should always respond with this to anyone who tells us that the bible is wrong and they have the correct answers to what God says.
John 17:17 | The Bible is true.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 | All Scripture is God-breathed.
2 Peter 1:21 | God’s Spirit guided the men who wrote the Bible.
Joshua 1:8 | Read God’s Word every day and think about it!
When we are told that there is something wrong with what the bible says we should just say this.
1. The oldest books of the Bible were written some 1500 years before Christ, or some 3500 years ago. 2. While a product of antiquity, its message is as fresh and as meaningful as ever.
3. Though written in an age of gross ignorance, the Bible contains profound wisdom for our modern computerized age.
4. The Bible claims to be eternal in nature. It sets forth its own defense.
a. Isaiah 40:8 – “The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever."
b. Matthew 24:35 – “... My words will by no means pass away.”
c. 1 Peter 1:25 – “... But the word of the Lord endures forever.”
Men who say that the scriptures are wrong should just read this.

1. 2 Timothy 2:15 – “Study to show thyself approved to God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
2. Matthew 5:6 – “Blessed are they who do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.”
B. The Bible is the Mind of God in print.
C. The Bible represents the strongest appeal of any book ever written.
1. It is the common repository of faith, strength, comfort, and courage of all mankind.
2. It imparts guidance and consolation to all people, regardless of their station in life.
3. It exerts its magnetic influence which in turn draws men irresistibility to it.
4. It is indeed the Book of God and the Book from God.
It is the Word of the God Who is the God of the Word.
Nothing is affirmed with greater clarity or repetition in the Bible than that the Bible is inspired by God.

It is the mind of God revealed to the mind of man. But men can change it to make them the police over the humans' salvation.
2. The Bible is therefore styled or referred to as:
a. The “Word of God.” Ephesians 6:17
b. “The oracles of God.” 1 Peter 4:11 c. The writing of God.” Exodus 32:16
d. “The word of grace.” Acts 20:32
e. “The word of truth.” James 1:18

To stay with what God has given to all of us in our day and time all we have to do is this!

A. Remember that the Bible contains what God wants each of us to know. It deserves to be read and studied in view of eternity.
B. we are to always let the word be what it says it is and us to be a student of the Holy Scriptures?

C. The scriptures are God’s creed of Doctrine so we can stand obedient to God’s will for our lifetime on earth?
D. God’s Plan for Man’s Salvation is in the hands and through the Jesus of the scriptures, not men because God has told us in John 3:16 it is where we all have to start if we want Him at the end of this human life.

There is one thing that we all can count on in this world and see clearly about men and that is when some man begins to undermine, discredit and reject the Bible, they are out to undermine, discredit and reject Christianity. So as God’s people we have no other choice but to say this - about the scriptures, Its authority is grounded upon God Himself. 1 Thessalonians 2:13-- "Ye received the Word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the Word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe."

SO WHY TALK ABOUT THIS AT EASTER TIME?
Who is this Jesus/? Is He your Lord or do you have someone else as your Lord and savior.
If the true Jesus says three days and three nights is He telling the truth, or are you saying He tells lies?
If Jesus says wash feet is it good for you?
If this Jesus says wine do you go for something else?
If this Jesus is the only way, are you looking for some other way?
If this Jesus says wine are you saying that we are to use something that did not exist at the time of the year?

The scripture tells us all this!

He- Jesus ate The Last Passover Supper with His disciples on wednesday, and hat the washing of the Saints feet, (Matthew 26:17-29, Mark 14:12-25, Luke 22:7-20, John 13:1-38). He was arrested that night, tried, and crucified on Thursday, stayed in the tomb three days and three nights, just like Jesus says He would. Matthew 12:40** Jonah 1:7

Jonah was an Old Testament prophet who attempted to disobey God. He may have “successfully” disobeyed God before, but he was not going to this time. God caused a fierce storm that terrified the sailors on Jonah’s ship.

The sailors wanted to understand the reason for the storm and eventually discovered that Jonah was the cause of the storm. It is an reminder that God may use the forces of nature or people to discipline us. So the sailors threw Jonah overboard, and he was swallowed by a large fish.

Jonah was in the fish for three days and three nights. Jesus chose to use the account of Jonah and the fish to give the scribes and Pharisees a sign. Jesus said that He would be in the grave or tomb for three days and three nights too! It was the sign of Jonah.

Question is will you help men change what God says as His truth into what men want so they can cut you off from God so they can live large on your dime, or will we just believe God.

The Scriptures tells us that is was the The “last “* Passover Eve, so what is it that men want you to do, is it to keep the Passover, that is over with, or the Communion and Foot washing, that is what the savior gave us at this time of the new year and for the New Covenant as an ordinance. (Matthew 26:47-75, 27:1-66, Mark 14:43-72, 15:1-47, Luke 22:47-71, 23:1-56, John 18:2-40, 19:1-42).

This Jesus rose from the dead on Sunday (Matthew 28:1-10, Mark 16:1-8, Luke 24:1-12, John 20:1-10) and appeared to His disciples during the following week (Mark 16:14, Luke 24:36-43, John 20:19-25). He then ascended to heaven 40 days after His resurrection (Matthew 28:16-20, Mark 16:19-20, Luke 24:44-53, Acts 1:3-11). He fulfilled all old Covenant Holy days, and Feast days, gave the rest from having any sabbath day with no such thing as a new holy day for the new covenant people.

I. Bible Proof Jesus rose on Sunday
A. Mark 16:9
B. The Road to Emmaus: Lk 24: 1, 13, 21, 46

All who belong to the Jesus of the Bible throughout Christianity, are and were all New Covenant and all Christian as His people. All who are saved through Jesus, of John 3:16 were saved from the past and have that Easter, Christmas, Sunday Jesus, as their savior and are His, even if the clergy was not there. The savior is the savior, heaven did that not men.
Easter falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon in the spring of each year.
There were no grapes on the vine at that time of the year, because it was springtime.
There was no way to keep grape juice for the year, because all grape juice would have turned to wine by that time, it can’t be stopped from turning to wine.
There was no way to keep grape juice in those days, so all of it had to be wine because all grape juice will turn into wine in about 21 days. It was in the 1860’s that the world had a way to keep grape juice from turning into wine, Dr Welch here in the United States invented it. In the United States Grape juice was used for the communion for the first time the year 1869 and done for money, and to cut off the people of God from the real communion.
Jesus called Him the good not the sinner who had wine!
Wine has antimicrobial properties. This is why we see the Good Samaritan using “wine” to clean the man’s wounds in Jesus’ famous parable. While the Israelites did drink some water, wine would have helped to prevent illnesses associated with drinking water exclusively (as we see in Paul’s words of wisdom below). Also, even though we know based on today’s science that alcohol isn’t all that great for the body, at this time in history wine was seen as far more nutritious than water. It was a practical drink that was a part of everyday culture.
What men forget is that the Jews are still here today and are still doing the old Covenant things.
The use of wine is found throughout the Bible. Its first mention is abuse of it when Noah became drunk on it (Gen 9:21, 24). The Bible later gives many warnings against this abuse of wine (becoming drunk on it) (Eph 5:18)(Prov 23:20-21, 29-32)(Isa 5:11-12) sometimes called “winebibbers” (Prov 23:20)(Mt 11:19)(Lk 7:34). However, wine had a significant and important role in the Bible. It was an important agricultural product (Gen 27:28)(2 Kin 18:32)(Jer 31:12), was used for trade (2 Chr 2:10, 15)(Ezek 27:18), to pay fines (Amos 2:8), in offerings to the Lord (Ex 29:40)(Num 28:7)(Lev 23:13), and as medicine (1 Tim 5:23)(Prov 31:6)(Lk 10:34)(Mk 15:23).
Drinking wine was a part of the culture of that day and still is today and done regularly (Gen 14:18)(Gen 27:25)(1 Chr 12:40)(2 Sam 16:1-2)(1 Sam 25:18)(Job 1:13, 18). There wasn’t much else to drink in those days, and there was very little access to clean, drinkable water, so drinking wine was considered a normal thing to do. Wine was also used to purify water sometimes.

Paul says wine!
No longer drink water exclusively, but use a little wine for the sake of your stomach and your frequent ailments. – 1 Timothy 5:23 It is wine that Paul is telling this saved person to use.
The wine that Jesus made?
A number of Christian denominations believe that Jesus never consumed alcohol. Despite the fact that the NT never claimed that Jesus refrained from drinking alcohol, many believe that it would be wrong for Him to drink because He was supposed to be sinless. However, responsible alcohol drinking was never called a sin in the Bible, Old or New Testaments. Below is a brief examination of why most Christians believe Jesus drank alcohol and why it’s the preferred position on this topic.

There were six water pots which held about 27-30 gallons each. This means they would have Jesus making over 162 gallons of alcoholic wine for the wedding guests! Moreover, for wine to become alcoholic, time is necessary for the fermentation process to take place. When freshly made, wine has no alcohol content at all. Because the master of the feast said that the wine Jesus made was “the good wine, ” some say this proves that it was alcoholic, when he was actually complimenting the groom on its pure quality.
The people of God who were out of order, but saved people did this and Paul had to correct them for what they were doing and He never said that wine was a sin.
Wine At The Communion was in use!
So then, when you come together, it is not the Lord’s Supper you eat, 21-for when you are eating, some of you go ahead with your own private suppers. As a result, one person remains hungry and another gets drunk., if there was no wine there how could they be getting drunk? 22 Don't you have homes to eat and drink in? (1 Corinthians 11:20-22***Here we can see 2 things clearly. The first is that wine seemed perfectly fine to be consumed at the communion meals at church (just like it was at the last supper). The second thing is that the wine was clearly alcoholic. We know this because by the time the poorer attendees made it there some of the others were already so full of wine that they were drunk. Of course this is the same word for wine as the rest of the wine in the NT. No distinction between wines is given in the NT as it is in the OT.
We see wine from the last supper and also passover was fermented. (We just saw above that Paul and the churches practice communion with fermented wine). The other reason I believe this to be true is that Jesus makes a very clear reference to the Drink Offering in Exodus 29:38-40. This offering of flour, oil, animal, and wine Oinos (οἶνος), were to be poured out upon the altar.
Likewise Jesus states that the wine at the supper was symbolic of His blood which would be poured out (on the altar) as a sacrifice for all sins.
If this Jesus of the scriptures did not drink wine why did they call Him a wine bibber, a drunk.
This position is in line with Jesus’ own words in Luke 7:33-34, “For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say, ‘He has a demon.’ The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard…” They accused Jesus of being a drunkard because he did not abstain from alcohol as John the Baptist did. This is clear evidence that Jesus did drink alcoholic wine.
The Bible does give good reasons for avoiding or at least being careful with alcohol. Scripture, while not condemning moderate drinking, does warn repeatedly against drunkenness. We are told in Ephesians 5:18, “Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit.” 1 Co 6:10 tells us that drunkards aren’t going to heaven. Romans 14:21 cautions us that alcohol should not be imbibed in a situation where it may affect your witness or Christian influence: “It is better not to…drink wine or do anything else if it might cause another believer to stumble.”
Romans 15:1-2 in the Living Bible makes it crystal clear that we must always consider how what we do affects our witness to others:
“Even if we believe that it makes no difference to the Lord whether we do these things, still we cannot just go ahead and do them to please ourselves; for we must bear the “burden” of being considerate of the doubts and fears of others—of those who feel these things are wrong. Let’s please the other fellow, not ourselves, and do what is for his good and thus build him up in the Lord.”
No man can take this out of God’s word.
1. Wine was a blessing from God for wise and obedient living.
Proverbs 3:9-10 states that when we honor the Lord with our wealth and with the firstfruits of our land, “then your barns will be filled with plenty and your vats will be bursting with wine.” Repeatedly wine is listed among the abundant blessings God promises to Israel if they keep His covenant (Deuteronomy 7:13; 11:14; 33:28).
2. The loss of wine was evidence of God’s curse.
Moses warned God’s people that if they disobeyed the voice of the Lord, many curses would overtake them. They would work in their vineyards but never taste the wine (Deuteronomy 28:39). Foreign nations would rob them of their crops, including their vineyards (v.51). On several occasion God dries up the wine of his disobedient people (Hosea 9:2; Joel 1:10; Amos 5:11; Micah 6:15; Zephaniah 1:13; Hagai 1:11). Twice God curses the land of Moab drying up their winepresses (Isaiah 16:10; Jeremiah 48:33).
3. Wine was an acceptable sacrifice to give to God.
Wine and other intoxicating drinks were poured over sacrificial offerings on the altar as drink offerings (Exodus 29:40; Leviticus 23:13; Numbers 15:5, 7, 10 18:12; 28:7, 14; Deuteronomy 18:4; 1 Samuel 1:24; 2 Chronicles 31:5; Ezra 6:9; 7:22; Nehemiah 5:11; 10:37, 39; 13:12). Even the Levites received wine for themselves from the tithes given by the worshipers (Numbers 18:30).
4. God gives us wine to settle our stomachs.
Paul counsels his son in the faith, Timothy, “No longer drink only water, but use a little wine for the sake of your stomach and your frequent ailments” (1 Timothy 5:23). This home-remedy for poor digestion has actually been confirmed by modern studies. Fermented drinks like beer, sherry, or wine are powerful stimulants of gastric acid secretion, and can even speed up the emptying of the stomach. Red wine also contains polyphenols that trigger the release of nitric oxide which relaxes the stomach wall, thus optimizing digestion.
5. God gives us wine to lighten our hearts.
Wine “cheers God and men” (Judges 9:13). The psalmist praises God for his provision: “You cause the grass to grow for the livestock and plants for man to cultivate, that he may bring forth food from the earth and wine to gladden the heart of man, oil to make his face shine and bread to strengthen man’s heart” (Psalm 104:14-15).
If the human goes to God after this life they will be given wine.
6. Abundant wine is one of the blessings of the age to come.
On the day God removes death forever and wipes away every tear, the Lord “will make for all peoples a feast of rich food, a feast of well-aged wine, of rich food full of marrow, or aged wine will be refined” (Isaiah 24:6). On that day God will again be God to all the clans of Israel, He will restore their fortunes, “they shall plant vineyards and drink their wine” (Amos 9:14), “they shall be radiant over the goodness of the Lord, over the grain, the wine, and the oil” (Jeremiah 31:12). God promises to restore to Israel the years that the swarming locust has eaten: the threshing floors will be full of grain and “the vats shall overflow with wine and oil” (Joel 2:24-25).
7. God invites His people to celebrate in His presence by drinking wine.
Year after year the Lord’s people brought a tithe of their crops to Jerusalem. There, where God made his name to dwell, He said they should eat the tithe of their grain, oil, meat, and even their wine. This regular feast in God’s holy presence was instituted so that they might “learn to fear the Lord your God always” (Deuteronomy 14:23).
Others had a longer journey to Jerusalem so they sold their crops, took the money with them, and purchased goods for the feast when they arrived. Listen to the very liberal and celebratory words God speaks to them: “spend the money for whatever you desire—oxen or sheep or wine or strong drink, whatever your appetite craves. And you shall eat there before the Lord your God and rejoice, you and your household” (Deuteronomy 14:26). Whatever you desire, whatever you crave—even if it is wine or strong drink—buy it and bring it to the worship feast.
God says the same thing about the age to come. On that day, Israel’s oppressors will never rob them of grain or wine again, “but those who gartner it shall eat it and praise the Lord, and those who gather it shall drink it in the courts of my sanctuary” (Isaiah 62:9).
8. Wine can be very appropriate for celebrations.
The bride who sings in the Song of Solomon says, “He brought me to the banqueting house, ” (or literally translated, his “house of wine”), “and his banner over me is love” (Song of Solomon 2:4). In Hebrew tradition, wine was very popular at weddings. We see this in the wedding feast Jesus attends in Cana. There, for His first miracle, Jesus miraculously produced more than one hundred and twenty gallons of fine wine for the wedding feast (John 2:6-11).
That day at the wedding in Cana, before the festivities began, the groom’s father would likely have held high a cup of fine wine and spoke a cheerful blessing over the new couple. When Jesus multiplied that wine in Cana, He was, in effect, multiplying that blessing of joy and happiness for the bride and groom.
9. Jesus banqueted with wine to demonstrate the joy of the nearness of the kingdom of God.
One of the marks of Jesus’ ministry was table fellowship. Jesus is often found eating in other’s homes or hosting meals. These instances of table fellowship left a deep mark on those who observed them or participated in them. These were not merely times to share food, but were platforms for Jesus to challenge social norms and make profound theological statements about himself and the kingdom of God.
What were these moments of table fellowship like? The Gospel of Luke offers us many glimpses. These were far from casual meals. Repentant sinners impacted by Jesus’ message would hold great feasts, and together Jesus and his disciples would recline with tax collectors and other notorious individuals (Luke 5:29). Jesus would even host his own banquets (Luke 15:2). These joyful feasts were settings where Jesus would call sinners to repentance (Luke 5:32), where men publicly turned from sin (Luke 19:1-9), and where Jesus spoke of the joy of the angels when even one sinner repents (Luke 15:7, 10). The meals might even be interrupted with sobering moments of remorseful weeping as Jesus declared sinners forgiven (Luke 7:48).
Some were miraculously healed (Luke 14:4). During these times, eager listeners would sit at His feet to hear His words (Luke 10:39). He would rebuke hypocrisy and empty religion (Luke 11:37-52), teach about genuine humility and honor (Luke 14:7-11), and challenge the social norms that divided rich and poor (Luke 14:12-14).

We are often asked this question around the Easter season when many churches have Communion. “The Lord’s Supper” is what Jesus gave His Body to memorialize His death, and like the Jewish Passover, we must take it at least once a year.
Those who fail to partake of Communion at least once a year have no spiritual life in them, and Jesus said that they will not be raised up in the rapture-resurrection (John 6:35-51). It is a serious matter not to be taken lightly.
1 Corinthians 5:7-8: “Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us: Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.”
This is written to New Testament Christians, and Paul likened us to unleavened bread. Since Christ is our Passover (Hebrew: PESACH: “lamb”), we do not need to eat lamb at Communion. We are commanded to eat unleavened bread and grape juice. Moreover, we must first purge out the old leaven of malice and wickedness. There are both physical and spiritual applications in the Communion. Since it was the eve of the Passover when Jesus and His 12 disciples gathered for the Last Supper, we should examine the origins and commandments regarding the Passover meal.

Easter celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ — a central belief for Christians worldwide and the focal point of their faith. Religious scholars believe the event occurred three days after the Romans crucified Jesus in roughly 30 AD. Christians therefore derive hope that they too will experience a resurrection in heaven.

Easter is also significantly associated with the exodus of the Jews from Egypt as depicted in the Old Testament and the Jewish holiday of Passover. The Last Supper, which took place the night before Jesus was arrested, is also linked to these events.

The Resurrection of Christ Declared Four Things:
Acts 2:32-36 says Jesus is Lord and Christ because of the resurrection.
Romans 1:1-4 declared Him to be the Son of God with power.
Ephesians 1:19-23 says Jesus is the Head of the Church.
John 11:25 says He is the Resurrection and the Life.
The purpose of why you follow Jesus, who is the only savior, is going to replace the nun- easter worshiper shall not be your first thinking when you seek to keep easter.:

Easter understanding brings this to a person's world.
How to -1) To worship God and to glorify Him on the earth (Ephesians 1:4-6).
2) To preach and teach the Word of God as the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ unto salvation (Matthew 28:19, 20; Ephesians 3:8).
3) To evangelize the world with the Gospel (Acts 2; 5:42; 6:5-8; 15:7).
4) To develop each individual Christian until he attains unto the fullness of the stature of Christ (I Corinthians 12; Ephesians 4:11-15; I Thessalonians 5:11; Hebrews 10:24-25). 5) To be a constant witness for Christ and His Word (Acts 1:8; Acts 8:1-4).

Easter Story Scriptures
All four of the Gospels - Matthew, Mark, Luke, & John, give account of the Easter Story. It's good to read from all four because each account adds to the story!
Matthew Chapters 27 & 28
Mark Chapters 15 & 16
Luke Chapters 23 & 24
John Chapters 19 & 20
Spirit, Soul and Body is what God is after.
In Daniel 12:1-4, Daniel talks of the end of the age where it says, “Many that sleep in the dust shall awake to everlasting life.” This “sleep” is referring to the physical body sleeping, not the soul or spirit. Our spirit is the “real us.” We are a spirit and have a soul (mind, will and emotions) that lives in a body. There is a cultic teaching that talks about “soul sleep” which is not scriptural. When people die, they do not enter into a state of eternal sleep, nor do they cease to exist. When we die, our body will go into the ground to decay and return to dust, but our body is not who we really are (Genesis 3:19). Our spirit, when we die, goes either to hell or to be with the Father in heaven. There is no in-between place, heavenly sleep or state of non-existence.

The Easter story is from the Bible and tells of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Son of God! It is a story that can change our lives, because it is the story of God's powerful love for each of us and the sacrifice He gave!
We celebrate Jesus' resurrection on Easter Sunday, but there would be no resurrection without His suffering death on a cross and buried in a borrowed tomb!
Easter Sunday celebration.
Christians celebrate Easter to honor the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. His coming back to life is regarded as one of the principal beliefs of Christianity.
So why would someone try to put down Easter for you and your family?
The reasons are very simple!
They are trying to stop you from this belief
Of what GOD really is, plus what He has done, Easter takes them out of the show and places Jesus as the only savior..
The resurrection of Christ changes everything. If Christ had not been raised, I'd have wasted my life. It doesn’t matter what I do or don’t do. I still die—and stay dead.
“And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins” (1 Cor. 15:17).
But Christ has been raised, and all who believe and trust in Him will also experience resurrection.
“God raised up the Lord and will also raise us up by his power” (6:14).
This changes my outlook on life. It changes my behavior. It gives me joy and peace because I know that nothing—no matter how bad it may seem—will keep me from a new, eternal life with Christ. Yes, the resurrection of Christ changes everything for me.
Has that truth changed everything for you? If so you must have John 3:16 your way to God.
“If you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord, ’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (Rom. 10:9-13).
The one thing is that men will make fun of anything that takes the power away from them, so they make fun of the eggs used to help children in the understanding of a very important event in the Christian walk of life.
If this Jesus is your lord then they have to get in their place.
If this Jesus is alive He would be the head of the church and not them.
It must hurt to not be the savior, the Boss and the Lord.
To keep the Communion and not the old Passover must hurt as well, because the Communion is when Christians drink wine and eat bread as a symbol of Christ’s body and blood which was shed on the cross on Good Friday. 1 Corinthians 11:24-26 states, “…do this in remembrance of me…for whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.” Some churches will reserve this for specific occasions, but most will offer this every week to their congregation to refocus their lives on what it meant for Jesus to die on the cross for all.
This lets us all (JOHN 12:26, MARK 8:34, GALATIANS 5:25)
We rely on the Holy Spirit and seek God’s direction in all we do
We engage in spiritual disciplines daily
We pray regularly
We reflect Christ in our interactions with one another
everyone matters to God
(LUKE 5:30-32, LUKE 15)
We help people find and follow Jesus
We are known by what we are for, not what we are against
We care for the hurting and broken
We serve others even when it’s not convenient
(COLOSSIANS 2:6-7, 2 PETER 1:5-8, JAMES 1:22-25)
We believe everyone has a next step
We take responsibility for our own growth and development
We are always in a posture of learning
We practice empathy, patience, and grace for each other’s journeys
(PSALM 145:4, DEUTERONOMY 6:6-9, 1 TIMOTHY 4:12)
We believe no one is too young to lead, and no one is too old to learn
We celebrate our investment in kids and students
We are always seeking apprentices and looking to replace ourselves
We program to serve a multi-generational congregation
At its origins, Easter is a day celebrating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. This event is described in the New Testament of the Bible as having occurred on the third day of his burial after his crucifixion by the Romans at Calvary.
Satan had lied and tricked Adam and Eve into sinning, causing them to be cast out of the Garden of Eden and all of humanity to be separated from God, and condemned to Hell.
Then God confronted Satan and told him that One of Eve's offspring would one day restore His people and that he, Satan, would be cast into a lake of fire, (Gen 3:15).

God loved mankind, so He sent His prophets to tell them that He would send a Savior, the Messiah, or "Anointed One." The Messiah arrived in the form of a baby, and His name was Jesus.
God is Alive Jesus is Real it must burn all of those who hate what God has done, for all of His humankind.

This hurts them because The true message of Easter celebrates the resurrection of Jesus and marks the beginning of a new covenant between God and man. It was indeed a colossal event in Bible history.

Men who do not believe that Jesus is the savior or the Son of God are trying to Stop the belief that there is one true and living God who has revealed Himself to us in three equal Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. He is perfect and just in every way. He is the Creator of all things. (Matthew 28:19; Jeremiah 32:27; 2 Corinthians 3:17; John 1:1-3, 14; Psalm 18:30; Deuteronomy 32:4; Nehemiah 9:6; Colossians 1:16)
Easter is not about bunnies and eggs. But we should have them for the children
Easter is all about Jesus.
Easter means Jesus rose from the dead.
Easter means we’ll rise from the dead. Romans 6:4
Easter means we can have a new life.
Easter means that the Jesus of the Bible is the only way to salvation.

JESUS CHRIST
Easter shows us all what to believe, so that God took human form through His Son, Jesus Christ. I believe in Jesus’ virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, teachings, death, and resurrection. I believe He died on the cross to atone for our sins, was raised from the dead by God on the third day, ascended into heaven, and now sits on the right hand of God making intercession for us.
believe He is alive and living within every true believer through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. I believe that no one can come to the Father except through the Son, Jesus Christ; He is the only mediator between God and man. (John 1:1, 14, 3:16, 14:6; Matthew 1:18-25; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Corinthians 15:3-7; Luke 24:50-53; Hebrews 1:3; Romans 8:34; 1 Corinthians 3:16; 1 Timothy 2:5)
THE BIBLE HAS THE LAST SAY
It does take men out of the show, and lets the bible be the inerrant, infallible, and authoritative Word of God. That all scripture was written by men who were inspired by the Holy Spirit. No one has the right to add or take away from the words of God. The holy Word of God will never pass away. (Deuteronomy 4:2, 32:4; Psalm 111:7; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21; Proverbs 30:6; Matthew 24:35)
SALVATION is only in this Jesus, just as John 3:16 tells us it is.
Easter understanding shows us how to believe that salvation, is the deliverance from sins and its consequences, is not based on our own merit or works. It is a merciful and gracious gift given to us by God through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. This wondrous free gift is given when you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead. (Ephesians 2:8, 9; Romans 10:9; John 5:24)

One who just beleives that the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are the Word of God; that they are inerrant in the original writings; and that they are of supreme and final authority in faith and practice. (Luke 24:27, 44; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21; 2 Peter 3:15b-16).
The Godhead We believe that the Godhead eternally exists in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit; and that these three are one God having precisely the same nature, attributes and perfections, and worthy of precisely the same homage, confidence, and obedience, each one executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption. (Genesis 1:26; Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 3:16-17; 28:18-19; Mark 12:29; John 1:14; Acts 5:3-4; Titus 3:3-7; Hebrews 1:1-3; I Peter 1:2-3; Revelation 1:4-6)

Satan We believe that Satan is an actual person, and not an imaginary influence; that he once enjoyed high heavenly honors and glorious heavenly privileges; that he, through pride, ambition and self-will attempted to betray the Almighty and brought down upon his head the judgment of God (Job 1:6-12; Isaiah 14:12-20; Ezekiel 28:12- 19) that he operates today as the prince of the power of the air
(Ephesians 2:2; 6:12) that he is a diabolical inventor, an arch deceiver, and the father of all lies (Genesis 3:1-6; John 8:44; 2 Corinthians 4:3-4) that he is the greatest enemy, the mightiest tempter, and the most relentless accuser of the saints (I Peter 5:8; Revelation 12:10); that he shall one day be incarnated in the person of the Antichrist
(Revelation 13:1-9) and in that role will finally meet the Christ in the battle of Armageddon; that there “the seed of the woman shall bruise the serpent’s head” (Genesis 3:14-15); and that he shall eventually be cast into the lake of fire (Revelation 19:20, 20:10), the eternal place of punishment prepared for the devil and his angels (Matthew 25:41).
Creation We believe that God personally created the heavens and earth (Genesis 1:1; John 1:1-3); that man was originally created in the image and after the likeness of God (Genesis 1:26) and that he disobeyed God, bringing sin (total depravity) and its condemnation upon the whole human race (Genesis 3:17-19).
We believe that every child of Adam is born into the world with a nature which not only possesses no spark of divine life, but essentially and unchangeably is evil apart from divine grace. (Psalm 14:1-3; 51:5; Jeremiah 17:9; Mark 7:20-23; Romans 1:24-32; 3:10-19; 5:12; 6:23; Ephesians 2:1-3).

The Person and Work of Christ We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary (Luke 1:34-35), is true God and true man (John 1:1-2; 1:14; 20:28), and in the sacrificial and atoning death of Christ through His shed blood upon the cross (Job 19:25; Isaiah 53; Matthew 27; Luke 23; I Corinthians 15; Titus 3:5-6; I Peter 1:18-19; Hebrews 9:14, 22; I John 1:7),

in His bodily resurrection and ascension (Matthew 28; Luke 24; Acts 1:10; 2:32-36; I Corinthians 15) to Heaven where He sits (Hebrews 1:1-3; I John 2:1-2) as the mediator between God and man today, (I Timothy 2:5) and in His literal future return to earth (Acts 1:11) as the greater son of David who shall sit upon David’s throne and establish an everlasting Kingdom (Luke 1:32-33).

The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and to testify of Him (John 15:26). He is the infallible interpreter of the infallible Word. He convicts men, regenerates the believing sinner, indwells, guides, instructs, and empowers the believer for Godly living, service and worship. (John 14:26; 16:13-15; Romans 8:26-27; I Corinthians 2:14; 3:16; 6:19; Ephesians 1:13-14; 4:30; I John 2:27).
Easter give us all a Relationship to God
Until next time the Elder: Have a great Easter, a true Easter.
