Acts 11:17 Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ ; what was I, that I could withstand God?

This is the time of year we should realize to remember… the purpose to the basis of the christian religion, for our religion has gone beyond religion to cause the participant a personal choice, to believe Jesus was the Son of God or not. If the individual chooses to believe… then it must become the hinge to our faith God loves us, and the proof of God’s love for us all is the act and measure God took upon Himself to become the ‘Paschal lamb’ or ‘lamb of God,’ the one without spot or blemish (from the Jewish perspective… ‘the Korban Pesach’ or sacrifice of Passover) to take away the sins of all people… the whole world. This is why the cross is to be seen as the point of a person’s salvation stemming from the sacrifice Jesus made for us. This hope is found formed secure in the third day, the day Jesus rose from the dead… where our hope is seen alive, not dead, and sound reason for mankind to see what prophesy foretold us would happen when ‘the Messiah’ came to Earth. Without the resurrection… the christian faith lies flat, and like every other religion this world claims to be true but the resurrection is surety of the truth of God being alive- for Jesus conquered the grave.

It is due to death being defeated, and our hope reigns eternal, I now call Easter the greatest Passover gift from God mankind can ever know. This is what christianity is all about, for those reading this with disbelief or skepticism, and though many people or religions would make this same claim… there has never been this type of eyewitness accounts or the prophecy to back it up as is found in the Jewish accounts of the living God of the Bible. My hope this day is to share these beliefs with you for the purpose of opening your eyes… opening your ears… of opening your heart to the truth of our living God. Enjoy this day, a day our LORD has made, and let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Shalom, your Brother in Christ Jesus,
