"The Truth about Easter!"

“The Truth about Easter!”


We all went astray like sheep; we all have turned to our own way; and the Lord has punished Him for the iniquity of us all.          Isaiah 53:6



What does Easter mean to you?  Is it all about colored eggs, chocolate bunnies, jelly beans, and Easter egg hunts?  Maybe it is new clothes for the whole family, or visiting with the extended family.  It might even be going to church that ONE time a year that you have always made it a point to do.  Some may even look at Easter as the opportunity to get new clothes, dress up and go to church to show off your new duds.  Whichever category or categories that you might be a part of.  It is the WRONG assumption of Easter.  The devil has duped you with a BIG, FAT LIE.


You are not doing God a favor by showing up ONE time a year, to show off your new clothes.  He’s NOT impressed.  Easter is MUCH MORE than Easter baskets and new clothes.  The truth about Easter is something that the devil doesn’t want you to even think about.  The Prophet Isaiah says:  We all are like sheep, we stray away from the Shepherd, going our own way, and finding nothing but, troubles, heartaches, and pain.   We are LOST and in NEED of a Shepherd to come and SAVE us from ETERNAL DISASTER. 


The TRUTH about Easter is that God punished His ONLY BEGOTTEN SON by sending Him to the Cross of Calvary, and taking on ALL the sin, (iniquity) of ALL MANKIND, from Adam and Eve to the very LAST person that will be born.  Jesus Christ, who knew NO sin became sin, in order for the Crown of God’s Creation, mankind to be SAVED from that ETERNAL DISASTER. 


God, in His INFINITE MERCY, AMAZING GRACE, and EVERLASTING LOVE for ALL MANKIND, has provided a WAY for us to have the HOPE of Heaven, and an ETERNITY with Him and our Shepherd, the Lord Jesus Christ, through the sacrifice of Jesus on an old, cruel, rugged cross, we have been shown the WAY, we know the TRUTH, and we have been offered eternal LIFE with Him.   This IS the TRUTH about EASTER!!


If you have not given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are living a LIE, and are headed for an ETERNITY in that place called HELL.  The devil would love nothing more than to keep you in the dark about the TRUTH of EASTER.  The fact that it is GOD’S PLAN for the SALVATION of mankind is definitely NOT what the devil wants you to believe.  But you can come out of the dark and into the light of the Word, and escape Hell and ALL its torments.  You can come to the TRUE realization of Easter and receive God’s gift of SALVATION, by:  CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and attend church REGULARLY, because of the TRUTH of Easter.  Do it NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
