  5. The True Message of Easter

"The True Message of Easter”
A new covenant

The true message of Easter celebrates the resurrection of Jesus and marks the beginning of a new covenant between God and man. It was indeed a colossal event in Bible history.

The Significance of Easter

Satan had lied and tricked Adam and Eve into sinning, causing them to be cast out of the Garden of Eden and all of humanity to be separated from God, and condemned to Hell.

Then God confronted Satan and told him that One of Eve's offspring would one day restore His people and that he, Satan, would be cast into a lake of fire, (Gen 3:15).

God loved mankind, so He sent His prophets to tell them that He would send a Savior, the Messiah, or "Anointed One." The Messiah arrived in the form of a baby, and His name was Jesus.

God is Alive Jesus is Real

Jesus had been given an assignment by God to save the world from their sins, and He had obeyed.

He healed the sick, cast out demons, and condemned the false leaders of His people; gave His life for the sins of all mankind so that all who would believe in Him could have Eternal Life, (John 5 24).

Historical records abound attesting to the life of Jesus. His life and death on earth are considered to be the most proven of all historical figures. 

Jesus' Great Intercessory Prayer

Shortly before His arrest Jesus offered a very special prayer often referred to as, “The Great Intercessory Prayer.”

Many Scholars consider this prayer to be a conversation between Jesus and His Father, God, with Jesus speaking His requests into existence.

  • First, He prayed for Himself:
    That the Father would receive Him back into Heaven, and restore the glory He had before the world began. (John 17:4-5). 
  • Then He prayed for His Disciples:
    That the Father would protect, guide and be with them as they delivered His message. (John 17:18).
  • Then he prayed for all Christians:
    He prayed for each child of God to have the same unity as exists between He and the Father. A unity, which allows for the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, and oneness with God, (John 17:20-21).

The Crucifixion of Jesus

Later that day Jesus was hung on a cross until dead. Near the point of death He said with a loud voice, "It is finished!" (John 19:30).

Upon His death, Heaven and Earth were shaken with violent earthquakes, and the earth was covered with darkness. People who had previously died were seen walking about, and the veil in the temple was torn from top to bottom. (Matt 27:51).

The torn veil was to signify that the Spirit of God would no longer be in the Ark that had been kept in the back of the Temple as the Most Holy of Holies under the "Old Covenant."

Under the "New Covenant" the Spirit is placed in every born again Believer. The Followers of Jesus are now His Tabernacle, (His Church).

(Luke 23:45, Matt 27:45-53).

Jesus had executed the mission given Him by His Father, and in doing so had opened the "Kingdom of Heaven" to all who would receive Him.

He was the new Passover Lamb. Never again would there be a need for animal sacrifice. The Lamb of God had shed His blood once and for all!

Beautiful Resurrection Morning!

Mary had gotten up early to visit the grave of Jesus, but to her surprise, the body of Jesus was missing. In His place were angels, real angels, and they said to her, “He is not here, He is risen." (Matt 28:6).

Surely the words of the angels at the empty tomb, “He is not here, but is risen,” are among the most significant words ever spoken, (Luke 24:6),

Jesus had paid it all! His life, death, burial, and resurrection ushered in a new plan of Salvation for humankind. This better and more perfect way was God’s "New Covenant" with His people.

Salvation and Eternal life were now available to anyone who would believe and accept Jesus as their Savior.

Every time we take the bread & drink the cup of the New Covenant we are proclaiming that Jesus is the Messiah, the Lamb of God, and Savior of the world.

No Longer Separated

No longer does mankind need to be separated from God. 

Nicodemus was a Scholar and Bible teacher of the Old Testament, yet had never heard that the Holy Spirit of God would enter into a person.

He could not understand what it meant to be born again, and he asked Jesus, “how is it possible?”

In the third chapter of John Jesus began to explained to Nicodemus how the Plan of Salvation would work under His New Covenant. 

Perhaps He told him that when an individual believes, and asks the Lord Jesus to come into his life, that the Spirit of God immediately enters in and he/she is then a born-again Believer. God then calls them His Children, and they call Him, Father!

The act of God indwelling man separates Christianity from every religion in the world.

"Lord of Lords," "King of Kings"

The chief priests and Pharisee's had tried to stop the inevitable, but neither Roman soldiers, government seals, nor large stones could prevent the King of Kings and Lord of Lords from accomplishing His mission.  

Jesus is the true message of Easter, and Because Of Him mankind can have a relationship with their Creator, and be with Him for eternity.

Easter brings hope, new beginnings, and Eternal Life, made possible by the One who loved us enough to die in our place, Jesus Christ.

For much of the world, Easter is only a tradition celebrated by colored Easter Eggs and the Easter Bunny. To the Followers of Christ, the true message of Easter proclaims the greatest act of love known to man.

God's infinite love for mankind is the true message of Easter, a love that will continue into Eternity.

"Lets Teach Our Children to Love"

Why is it so difficult for our educators and society, in general, to understand that love and respect for one another taught from a young age can solve much of the world's hostility and social problems!

"Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it" (Prov 22:6).

Love is the answer!

Loyalty and Faithfulness

True loyalty springs from the heart and is wrapped in love. It is often in our most private moments that true loyalty, or the lack of it, is made known.
