Resurrection Sunday Coming --[Easter] Celebrate!
This coming Sunday is the Christian holiday [once called Holy Day] commonly called Easter but known to Christians as the day celebrated as the resurrection of JESUS into heaven. In my effort to teach the world what true born again believers believe I am going to write some of the Scriptures about that Resurrection here.
It is written, 'in the end of the Sabbath as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre [where JESUS was laid after his death on the Cross]. And behold, there was a great earthquake; for the Angel of THE LORD descended from heaven , and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow; and for fear of him, the keepers did shake and became as dead men. And The Angel answered and said unto the women, 'fear not ye; for I know that ye seek JESUS which was crucified. He is not here, for He is risen, as HE said. "come and see the place where The Lord say. And go quickly and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see Him; lo, I have told you. ' And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring His disciples word. And as they went to tell His disciples, behold, JESUS met them, saying "All hail" .And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped Him. Then said JESUS unto them, 'be not afraid; go tell My brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see Me." Now when they were going behold, some of the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the Chief Priests all the things that were done. And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel they gave large money unto the soldiers. Saying, 'say ye, ' His disciples came be night and stole him away while we slept. And if this come to the Governor's ears, we will persuade him and secure you. So they took the money and did as they were taught, and this saying, is commonly reported among the Jews until this day. Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee into a mountain, where JESUS had appointed them. And when they saw him, they worshipped Him; but some doubted. And JESUS came and spake unto them, saying, 'all power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptising them in the Name of THE FATHER and of THE SON, and of THE HOLY GHOST. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and lo, I AM with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen." Matthew 28 King James Holy Bible
Now here's the thing: the whole event of JESUS being born a human while still being GOD and then dying in your place and my place to make atonement for our sins, was the plan of GOD. If you read the Old Testament as you would read any book then you see that GOD realized after HE made mere mortal humans that they were nothing but clay,and that they could not save themselves. So HE had a plan to redeem all of humanity from the pit of hell. BUT being a good GOD HE would not force HIMSELF on anyone and therefore set up a way to heaven that all who believe could follow HIM to heaven. I know that from these scriptures:
JESUS said, "verily, verily, I say unto you 'he that heareth MY word and believeth on HIM [GOD THE FATHER, SPIRIT] that sent ME hath everlasting life and shall not come into condemnation [on GOD's final Judgement Day] but is passed from death unto life. Verily, verily I say unto you, 'the hour is coming and now is,when the dead shall hear the voice of THE SON of GOD and they that hear shall live. For as THE FATHER hath life in HIMSELF so hath HE given to THE SON [JESUS referring to HIMSELF as being born of THE SPIRIT of GOD], to have life in Himself, and hath given Him authority to execute Judgement also, because He is the Son of man. Marvel not at this, for the hour is coming in the which all that are in the graves shall hear His voice. And shall come forth,; they that hath done good unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.' John 5:24-29
And also from these verses: JESUS said, 'all that THE FATHER giveth Me shall come to me; and him that cometh to Me, I will in no wise cast out. For I came down from heaven, not to do Mine own will, but the will of HIM that sent Me. And this is THE FATHER's will which hath sent Me, that of all which HE hath given Me, I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. And this is the will of Him that sent Me, that every one that believeth on Him, should have everlasting life; and I will raise him up [from the dead] up at the last [Judgement] Day. " John 6:37-40
And from these verses: "JESUS said unto her, " I AM the resurrection and the life; he that believeth in ME though he were dead yet shall he live; and whosoever liveth and believeth in ME, shall never die. Believest thou this?" John 11: 25-26.
