HALLELUJAH! PRAISE THE LORD! WE HAVE REASON TO CELEBRATE! OH YEAH!
What separates Christianity from ALL of the other religions? So much! But, it can all be answered in one word: Love.
God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believeth in him shall be saved and have everlasting life. John 3: 16
We have a Savior. There is no other religion, faith, group or belief that can offer you everlasting life. There is no other messenger, prophet or leader that died and came back. I don’t have to name them. I don’t have to. If you’re reading this…think about it.
Now, there’s an Obituary of Jesus that goes around the Internet. And a lot of people like it. It’s a Blessed story but the most important part is missing as Christians who mean no harm are circulating it and I don’t know who else. It fails to say that Jesus rose from the dead. That is why you are healed, saved and delivered!
Here are some scriptures that prove what happened right after Jesus was buried and the women went to check on him at the grave site:
MATTHEW 28:2-7 NKJ
2 And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat on it.
3 His countenance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow.
4 And the guards shook for fear of him, and became like dead men.
5 But the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified.
6 “He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
7 “And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead, and indeed He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him. Behold, I have told you.”
So while the obituary tells the truth it leaves out an important part….it’s a notice of his death…but we have notice that He lives! If you receive it; please pass that part on as well.
