Easter Sunday

It is not about bunnies and chocolate eggs

It is about the salvation of OUR eternal souls

This image from Mel Gibson's 'The Passion of the Christ' while more graphic than the sanitized Jesus on the Cross usually shown, still does not convey what was done to the only sinless man to ever walk.


While nearly completely ignored, what the Christ endured at the hands of vile, sinful men when he was scourged with 39 flesh-ripping lashes is all part of the crucifixion story. We are told in the book of Isaiah :


But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.


Traditionally, Easter Sunday will see the biggest spike in Church attendance than any other time of year. It will be celebrating the Resurrection, but before that Glory came the whipping post, the humiliation, the mocking, the spitting upon, struggling to carry His Cross, being nailed naked to the most cruel means of death imagined and finally death and descent into Hell so that sinful man could be forgiven.


Those who hear the message and choose to ignore or mock it will be condemning themselves to eternal damnation from the presence of GOD. 


The Greatest Expression of Love
the world has ever seen

God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son to pay the price for the sins of all of mankind. That sin is what separates us from Him and our entrance to heaven. No sin can enter heaven and if ours is not forgiven we have denied ourselves entrance to eternal life in heaven.

We are told in the Holy Bible "And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among people  by which we must be saved [for God has provided the world no alternative for salvation]." 

We are told how we may be saved and taken into heaven rather than into hell.
"Believe in the Lord Jesus [as your personal Saviour and entrust yourself to Him] and you will be saved, if you acknowledge and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord [recognizing His power, authority, and majesty as God], and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."
Amplified Bible
What must you do to be saved from eternal damnation?

It is not complicated; if prayed sincerely, simply say:

JESUS save me, a sinner .........
