RESURRECTION SUNDAY

Resurrection Sunday
a more fitting name


Looking at the celebration of eggs and rabbits which are both symbols of fertility on Easter Sunday it is not much of a stretch that the name has been polluted over time.

Resurrection Sunday is a more proper and fitting name for the most holy day in all of Christendom.

On Crucifixion Friday the LORD descended into the very pit of hell, being totally separated from God,suffering the fate of all those who reject the Gospel. Death is best described as being totally separated from God.

Those three days may as well have been an eternity as time stops in that horrible place. During that time the LORD was tormented by the devil and his evil hordes.

He endured the same suffering and anguish that all souls will experience in that horrible place. Most certainly the devil believed he had triumphed over God, having moved sinful men to put Jesus to death.

Suddenly on the third day, as the devils laughed with glee over their victory all of hell was shaken as blinding light pierced the place.

Their glee turned to sudden shrieks of terror and fear as the Almighty Holy Spirit of God entered that place.

He declared to all in that place:


You can not have Him!
He has paid the price!
IT IS FINISHED
ALL THINGS HAVE BECOME NEW

In that moment God's greatest demonstration of His love for mankind was finished.

The sin that has kept men from God is no longer a barrier, as God's only begotten Son paid the penalty for all of us. The only thing that is required of us is to simply believe what Jesus has done. It is no more complicated than that. We don't have to perform certain rituals or stop sinning before we are accepted by God, we are accepted, not because of anything we can do, but because of everything that He has done.

To make the power of Resurrection Sunday become reality in your life, requires no more of you than to bow your knee before God and ask Him to save you.

Sincerely and honestly prayed, the following prayer will cleanse you of all sin and usher you into God's eternal family:

Simply, sincerely, honestly pray:


Jesus,save me a sinner
