Easter Message 23/04/2011

Have a blessed New week.

I trust you have had a good week. Loves Living Word Ministries UK has been busy!
Praise and glory to God, 3 more people accepted Christ as their Lord and Savior.

I am going to share a small bit about Christ as it’s Easter. And I will continue with 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 “ Receive the gift of love” next weekend!

This is the scripture the Holy Ghost has given me for you this week.

John 11:25-“I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believes in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.”

I would like to talk about Jesus Christ and what Easter is really all about.
Its not about chocolate eggs and gift giving. Its not about buying Easter clothes and going out to get plastered. Some people enjoy Easter break and take the opportunity to have time off from work and party. They over eat, indulge in too much drink and spend loads of money yet ignore why Easter is an Easter Feast in the beginning. So lets see why we have Easter Feast. In fact, it seems some people block it out of their mind that Jesus paid the ultimate price once and for all mankind to go free in this life from all evil: and receive eternal life in the next.

Luke 24:1-7

 "On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb.  They found the stone rolled away from the tomb,  but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.  While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them.  In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead?  He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee:  ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again."

Jesus’ mission

Ephesians 2:16 "He designed to reconcile (meaning to restore friendship and harmony) to God both Jews and gentiles (every other nation of world) in a single body by means of the cross thereby killing the mutual enmity (A state of opposition; hostility) and bringing the feud to an end.”

Jesus went to the cross and Jesus paid IN FULL sinless with his own blood and was raised from the dead a spirit being so that we could be re united with God. He gained our authority back over dark forces that operate in this world. These spirits help cause sickness, poverty, sexual abuse or permissiveness, addictions, cruelty evil the list goes on… This is satan character and nature in the world as you have read in my previous blogs. You cant see them as they are spirits. Ephesians 6:12
Jesus and His life was predestined see: Mathew 1:23, so that mankind should he choose could live free from the cursed world and satans who is ( the prince of the air) as said in Ephesians 2:2

Jesus endured the cross sinless so you could also receive eternal life in Heaven with God just as God has ALWAYS intended!

John 3:16 “ For God so loved the world he sent His only begotten Son so that whosoever shall believe on Him shall not perish but have ETERNAL LIFE”.

Romans 10:9-10 “That if you shall confess with your mouth that Lord Jesus is Lord, and shall believe in your heart that God hath raised him from the dead, you shall be saved.”

Mark 16:16 “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.”

Acts 2:21 “And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Romans 5:9-10 "Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life".

As you can see with next scripture that many hear the GOOD NEWS and (it’s the best news you will ever hear) I can tell you right now! Yet through deception or sheer pride or attitude so many are MISSING IT!!! Don’t miss it.

Luke 8:12 “Those by the way side are they that hear; then comes the devil, and takes away the word ( Gods promises out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved”.
Your eternal life depends on this! Don’t believe me test the bible out for yourself. Don’t let satan do this. Get a firm foundation of Gods word Bible and go to a good church, one that is ALIVE with the Holy Spirit and not DEAD ( not teaching the word of God fully) like so many are! One that teaches the truth bible only! Not what men think we need to hear.

Lets take a look at a prophecy from prophet of God “Isaiah” in the Old Testament to see what Jesus was to endure. Isaiah prophesied this ( meaning foretelling or prediction of what is to come )

Isaiah 53:5 “ But He was wounded for our transgression, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of peace and well being was upon Him, and with the stripes that wounded Him we are healed and made whole”
This talks about what Jesus was going to endure on our behalf on the cross. It was physical, emotional, spiritual distress on a level no other human has ever endured. He went through this because of mans fall and separation from God and to show Gods glory, His LOVE in the earth.

Easter is a international holiday about Jesus Christ who was put on the cross for “DOING GOOD and HEALING ALL who were oppressed of the devil for God was with Him” see Act 10:38 however there was a bigger reason. Reconciling us to God.

Eggs symbolise RE BIRTH.. Think about it?
See John 3:3-7 -"Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.”
“How can someone be born when they are old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely they cannot enter a second time into their mother’s womb to be born!”
Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again."

Romans 10:13 “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you would like to ask Jesus into your life and heart pray this simple prayer aloud.
“Jesus, I make you Lord and savour of my Life. Thank you for dying on the cross for me. Come into my heart and show me the way, Forgive me for my sins. Guide me and show me the way. In Jesus Christ Name Amen ( so be it)”.

If you have said that prayer you are now a re born spirit filled Christian. Your spirit which was dormant is now awakened/ressurected and you have gained eternal life and the precious gift of the Holy Spirit and His Fruits now live in you. Galatians 5:22 The Holy Spirit is part of the trinity ( God The Father, God The Son and God The Holy Spirit) Search scripture and see.

Romans 8:11- “ And if the spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you then He (God) who raised Jesus from the dead will also restore LIFE to your mortal bodies through His spirit who lives in you”

John 16:13 - “But when he, the Spirit of truth ( Holy Spirit), comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.”

You are now marked as a child of God and every spirit in the spirit realm knows you are Gods now! Well done.. So happy for you. Millions of angels are cheering right now in Heaven. So are the Saints, especially Jesus and your Father in Heaven.
Jesus said:
John 14:16 “I am the way the truth and the life no one comes to the father except by me”
If you just said that prayer you just did!!!!

Now lets look at the scripture we are studying again

John 11:25-“I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believes in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.”

Lets look at what the word resurrection means first?
In English dictionary it means:
1. The act of rising from the dead or returning to life.
2. The state of one who has returned to life.
3. The act of bringing back to practice, notice, or use; revival.

“Jesus was the resurrection and the life”

How could Jesus come back to life when He had died on the cross? He died a human being and raised as a spirit being.
1 Peter 3:18
“For Christ also has once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh ( body), but quickened ( made alive) by the Spirit”. When He resurrected in spirit, where did He go?

Ephesians 1:20-23
“ Which He exerted in Christ when he (God) raised Jesus from the dead and seated Him at the hand (of God) in heavenly place far above all rule and authority and Power and dominion and every name that is named not only in this age and this world but also in the age and the world which is to come and he has put ALL THINGS under his feet and appointed Him (Jesus) the supreme head of church (the real church that is not the one the world is portraying) Which is His body (that’s is believers in Christ).

This is a position of authority. In triumph over what? satan of course! Anyone who excepts Christ is with him . So you no longer have to put up with poverty, ill health, the curse, addictions, things that control you and put you in chains ( bondage), sexual sin and its misuse. The Occult is a MAJOR deception but that is something I shall share later on. For now stay Clear of all occult it opens you wide up to satan and his demons. God has had your life predestined. See Ephesians 1:4-5
Question is have you done anything about this or are you just going to let God pass you by? Think about it? The creator of the UNIVERSE all of it. Every star constellation every planet, The God who said Light be in and it was as it says in Genesis 1 wants a personal loving relationship with you! ( note as my Pastor shared with me once) God didn’t say light stop! Light travels at speed of Light Check its out scientifically. Its still travelling now! it He will guide you, not control you like satan does.
John 11:25 -“I am the resurrection and the LIFE

Romans 8:11- “ And if the spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you then He ( God ) who raised Jesus from the dead will also restore LIFE to your mortal bodies”

John 10:10“ satan comes but to steal to kill and to destroy but I have come that you might have LIFE and have it in all its fullness”.

John 6:35 "I am the bread of LIFE, He who comes to me will never be hungry and He who believes in me (trusts and relies) shall never go thirsty”.

And the underlined part "He who believes in me shall never go thirsty" takes us to the next part of the scripture we are studying
John 11:25 - “I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believes in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.”
Jesus appeared in spirit form and full form to his disciples many times after he had been on the cross.
On one occasion Thomas a disciple of Jesus Christ refused to believe that it was Jesus actually Jesus until Thomas could put His hand through Jesus’ holes where the nails had been in his hands. This guy had walked with Jesus been taught by Jesus seen all the miracles done by him, saw the way so called religious people tried to kill him saw many turn against Him .Saw His love experienced His love. This guy must have either saw or heard of the darkness that came in the sky the day he was on the cross and the earthquake that happened yet still doubted briefly that it was actually Him. Why it was a supernatural things something that bypasses mans logical brain. Yet when He put His fingers through Jesus’ wholes He said “You are my Lord and my God “in John 20:28 He  then believed and recognised Jesus as God!

John 20:29-Jesus said to him, “Thomas, because you have seen me, you have believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed“.

Having not seen Christ in person yet still believeing in him and having a personal relationship with him in SPIRIT Jesus says makes us BLESSED!

How do you get to believe in Jesus and what he did? You get to know him. Where ? Through His word, through hearing it preached and taught in a good church that’s ALIVE not dead! You invite Him into your life, have Him (Jesus) come live inside you through the Holy Ghost. You focus your attention on what he did, what the truth says He is , did and is still doing today.

Hebrews 13:8 - “Jesus Christ the same yesterday today and forever”

Only when you get to know something and understand it can you fully trust it yet God gave all of us a measure of faith see: Romans 12:3
And this is what is used when you call to Jesus.

You don’t concentrate on what negative people or the world has said about Him. There is so much deception and lies regards the church, there has been throughout history why? Satan doesn’t want people finding out the truth and being saved. He wants them suffering in hell. And suffer they will see: in particular The book of Revelation to find that out.
That’s a whole other subject and I will go into this when the Holy Ghost wills.

Its up to you once you have been shown to truth to do a bit of digging instead of being a blind sheep like so many are, denying that Jesus ever existed and ignoring His mighty Power. There is no disputing the fact that Jesus Christ did in fact exist, again do some study for yourself. He is still doing to this day what he did when he walked on the earth. He is doing this through His spirit living in people and working all over the earth. Mighty moves of God go on all over the world and the media cover it up with what the government wants to put on your screen. Its all there to feed you. Feed you lies. Don’t believe most of what you see on the news and in newspapers. But I am sure you already know that right! Instead of being concerned about what the next celebrity has been up to or wearing find out what Jesus did for you. Who He is. Who he was when He came to earth. Who is now in Heaven. Who you are except Him into your life. You’re a Kings Kid that’s who you are. He’s got your back. He will do mighty and wonderful things for you just as He did when He was here on the earth. The ones who put him on the cross did so knowing full well all He had ever done was as Act 10:38 says “He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed of the devil for God was with him”
Things haven’t change today in the world look around you look at the way people are, severely oppressed of the devil and behaving badly to people who do good. They thought they had won but It was the most powerful miricle to have happened. His RESSURECTION and now people all over the world are being RESSURECTED through His spirit unto Eternal Life. Nothing and No one could ever stop God! Although sadly they may try! Jesus actually said Father Forgive them for they no not what they do on the cross? He was asking the Lord God to forgive them why? Because Jesus was sent for Mankind to REDEEM them from eternal death and sepration from God yet. as it says in scripture some ( those who chose to think and believe and behave like satan ) They were not aware due to deception from satan and the curse who He was and there pride got in the way and they wanted him gone! So even after enduring what He did Physcically Emotinally and Spiritually Jesus Christ still wanted His Father to forgive them. Thats LOVE! AGAPE LOVE.
Look how bad things are in this world and its going to get an awful lot worse scripture says and you know what? Scripture has been right so far over everything. All foretold NOTHING comes anywhere near even remotely close! Things will change and you will gain everything and more, more  than you ever dreamed possible if you except Jesus as your Lord. it’s a free gift of LOVE.

God is a spirit in fact He is the Ultimate spirit - John 4:24 “God is a spirit and those who worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth”.

Romans 8:14
“For all who are led by the spirit are the sons of God”

In the last part of John 11:25 “though he were dead, yet shall he live”

You are no longer dead? How can I be dead when I am alive now?

Separation from God is death, eternity away from Him is spiritual death.
We have physical death where our body gives in but our spirit which is eternal lives on.. This is why Jesus Christ was sent back. To awaken/Ressurect you! 

2 Tim 1:10 "but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel"

John 3:5- Jesus answered, "I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit.”

Ezekiel 36:26 “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.”

2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”

1 John 5:4 “For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.

So as you can see Easter is far more than chocolate eggs, clothes and partying. Its Exactly what Your Father in Heaven did for you 2000 years ago and is still doing for you today. He loves you. No matter what you have done or ever could do. That’s the difference between God and man. His love is Eternal.

John 11:25-“I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believes in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.”

Are you ready for the truth?
Have a blessed Holy Season,

God bless you and yours this week
