This is the generation that will abolish abortion

What Good Friday and the Easter Season mean to me – What does it mean to you?

I am going to keep this simple, not go into my whole testimony here. Most people who know me, know I was a raging heathen. I was one of the most evil people you could have ever met in your life and you would have regretted meeting me if you had. I had no respect for people, for property and did not know what love was. I was lost.

When I think of Good Friday and Easter I think of the first time I understood what love is. I think of the first time I ever felt that I mattered and that I was worth something. When I see an image of Christ on that Cross I know that my whole life of thinking I was just a loser was a lie and that I had value. When I think of Christ rising from the tomb, I understand what Forgiveness is and realized how to conquer all the garbage I let into my life. When I think of Easter I realize that I was never truly lost, but that Christ was there for me all along.

I know life can be tough. I will be totally honest with you, right now is one of the toughest periods I have ever been through in my life. I have found that in those tough times, if we empty ourselves out to Christ, that is when we can be filled the most. Sometimes we may not even have the words to say, and that is when He will speak the most to us. Sometimes we may think we have nothing left to give, and that is when He will give us the most.

I encourage you to take the next few days and try and remember what Easter means to you. What His love, His hope, His death and His resurrection mean to you.

And then….

Take all of that and share it with those who have not yet found this beauty, shine His light to others as He has Shined it in our lives.

He is Risen!

What does Easter mean to you? Please tell me what it means to you.

    Jesus gave me a choice — He always does. I saw the black, endless, hollow of a life without Him, continuing my path of heathen selfishness and self-centeredness. Thank God (pun intended) I turned to Him. Now is probably the hardest time in my life, but Good Friday and Easter show me that He will hold me up. Praises.

    Had a vision this morning of several pairs of baby hands reaching into a blue sky filled with white clouds. As I prayed about it…the first thing that came to mind was all the innocent unborn babies whose lives are terminated every year by abortion…and how…like Abel’s blood did after his brother Cain killed him, these children’s blood cries out to God from the ground where it was shed.

    Then, the lyrics to the song linked below (taken from a portion of Psalm 36) came to mind.

    As much as Cain’s murdering his brother was wrong, God chose not to take Cain’s life, but instead, but a sign on Cain which when other’s saw it, was to protect him from death.

    Tonight at sundown, Carrie and I celebrate our first Passover together with some good ministry friends of ours, and I’m reminded about the innocent blood of our Messiah that was shed on the cross for the remission of our sins. I’m reminded also how at that first Passover thousands of years ago, like that sign that was placed on Cain to spare his life, God told the children of Israel to mark the door posts and lentils of their homes with the blood of a spotless, innocent lamb…which for thousands of years as Passover has been taught and proclaimed through out history, has spoken prophetically of the day when our innocent Passover lamb…the, “Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world”, would die so that we might find true forgiveness and healing! But it doesn’t stop there!

    As I continued to pray this morning…I was reminded of how, on the third day, our Messiah was raised from the dead…and after Carrie found the song below for us to listen to, I realized it was done by the group, “Third Day”!

    God is speaking to all who will listen today!! God has a prophetic time table recorded in the Torah and other Old Testament Scriptures…especially as it relates to the, “Feasts of the Lord,” as He calls them in Leviticus 23. These are not man’s feasts, but GOD’S FEASTS….as stated elsewhere, they are, “Ordinances Forever”.

    So if you are not celebrating Passover this evening…if you have never honored God in that way, may I suggest that you try to at least make some effort in that regard…and begin to look into the other Feasts of the LORD that God has ordained. You won’t be disappointed…Messiah is all over them!!!

    Blessings in Him!

    First of all I lived 30 years with out Christ and if David thought he was evil let me share with you that I took part in the death of my child. Yes, I had a abortion and I am a baby killer. The only difference is now is that I am forgiven, I dont have to beat myself up everyday because of the guilt that came with being horribly post abortive ( the sadness never leaves though). Not only that but because of what Jesus did on the cross I will someday be reunited with my precious child. If he had not been willing to go to the cross I would surely be going to hell ( with the rest of of the baby killers) and be separated from my child for eternity. Times are tough but Jesus gives me hope.

    Had Christ not risen from the dead, our faith would have been in vain. He would just have been a forgotten footnote in history and would have been considered either a lunatic or a liar. But He was neither; He is what He said: the only begotten Son of God. He opened heaven to us sinners. And He remains with us in His Real Presence: the Holy Eucharist.

    He is my ALL!

    Easter means that I can get a superb brunch early Sunday morning while the pious are celebrating some part of history that never actually happened.

    Actually Easter means a lot to me, fond memories of family and Easter Egg hunts as a child, and the beginning of spring!

    Oddly Easter has been around long before Jesus, the greeks celebrated it, and the Pagans saw it as a celebration of fertility. Like many other important dates the christians took it and changed it as a way of meeting in the middle with the ‘heathen’ cultures they were about to exterminate. Odd that Easter celebrates a resurrection and yet also brought on a bloodbath and gruesome deaths of non believers.

    As it says in the Bible {John 3:16)….we are saved if only we believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the only way. We can not save our self. I am so glad and thankful for his love for me and all humanity. My prayer for this Easter is that the whole world would know his Love!

    Happy Easter to all.

    That’s why I choose to celebrate Passover instead of Easter…God tells us in Jeremiah 10 not to worship Him in the same way the pagans worship their Gods…so I’ve gone back to the Jewish roots of Christianity, and am now celebrating the same things that Jesus our Messiah celebrated when He walked the earth. So much richness in our Jewish roots!

      The word Easter comes from a Hebrew word Paschai that is a derivative of Passover. Easter is not now, nor has it ever been, a pagan holiday. It predates all the Germanic customs that people say are the forerunners of Easter. It does not come from the pagan word Ashtar and has nothing to do with fertility. Easter eggs are not a fertility symbol but derive their existence from the fact that the early Christians fasted from all meat products including meat and eggs. Of course, hens don’t stop laying just because we stop eating, so they had to do something with the eggs when they stopped fasting on Easter. Hence, cooking eggs and eating them as part of breaking their fast. We have GOT to get over the myths!
