As I write this, my eyes tear. This festive season, Christians around the globe are celebrating easter. Last sunday was palm sunday and christians commemorated Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem.
Jesus, prophesied about in the old testament and fulfilled in the new testament and into our hearts.2000 years ago he rode into Jerusalem and cried,when He reached the descent at Mt. Olivet; because Jerusalem did not realise the day of their visitation and the things that made for their peace.Thus, their enemies would surround them and level them.(LUKE19:28-48).
Many people don’t realise when our Lord Jesus visits them and harden their hearts. In this easter season, we christians should be more repentant and draw near to God. Jesus died on the cross for our sins.Go back to God and take your position.Jesus died and ressurected, yes hades could not hold him. He is the firstbon from the dead.
15:He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation
16:For by Him all things were created, that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible,whether thrones, or dominions or principalities or powers.All things were created through Him and for Him.
17:And He is before all things and in Him all things consist
Yes, He is the firstborn over all creation. For as the first chapter of the gospel according to John says, that in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the word was God.God through His word created the World.Verse 14 of John says that the Word(Jesus) was made flesh, and dwelt among us.
Jesus died and ressurected for us then went to prepare a home for us. Christians who grow weary should keep in mind that our victory is assured.We should put on the whole armour of salvation. All we need to do is abide by the Bible,practice it as faith without action is dead and not go to the left or the right of what it says.
Therefore as you celebrate with easter bunnies, nyama choma(roast meat), chapatti etc, remember to; James4:7-8,Therefore submit to God.Resist the devil and He will flee from you.Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.Cleanse your hearts you sinners; and purify your hearts you double-minded.
I am listening to Victor’s crown by Darlene Zschech because Jesus is the Victor’s crown.He has overcome.As Kari Jobe says, If there are words for Him, I don’t have them for God knew that many many words would never do;so He sent Him as The Word.
It’s past bedtime in this part of the world. Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
