Good Morning!        WELCOME

    

      This is a defining moment in history!!!

You are blessed to be living in a time that generations will be asking about for years to come. Everyday we hear of the horror stories of pain, frustration and death, yet you have the opportunity to point souls to Jesus Christ. 

Today is NOT about "Easter" because NO Christian in the Holy Bible observed this as a "Holy Day". This is about the opportunity to glorify God. It glorifies God when we "bear much good fruit.

John 15:8

Christ and His Covenant 

The Bible speaks about the importance of doing things God's way. 

"There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end there of are the ways of death," Proverbs 14:12 

"Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven" Matthew 7:21

Does the Bible teach that you can think you are right and can be dead wrong? Are you saved or a Christian just because you call out the name of Jesus, according to the Bible? 

The Bible also speaks about the fact that a person is obligated to examine the evidence presented to him to determine if that evidence is in accordance with God's Word.  

"Study to show theyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." 2 Timothy 2:15

"These were more nobele than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whethere those things were so. Therefore many of them believed, also of honourable women which were Greeks, and of men, not a few." Acts 17:11-12. 

What made those more noble than those at Thessalonica? How did they recieve the Word of God? How do you? 

Authority plays an important part in many areas of our lives. When a person refuses to submit to authority, the result is tragic. When a child hasn't been taught or doesn't recognize the authority of his parents, it leads to calamity.  What are some examples of this today? 

When a person doesn't recognize the authority of the government, it leads to chaos. What are some examples of this today? 

 

When a person doesn't recognize the authority of God's Word, it leads to confusion. What are some examples of this today?  

"O LORD, I know that the way is NOT in himself: it is NOT in man that walketh to direct his steps." Jeremiah 10:23

"There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of DEATH!!." Proverbs 14:12

Everything people DO in religion must be done by the authority of God if they are to please Him.

"And whatsoever ye to in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus , giving thanks to God and the Father by Him. " Colossians 3:17

 

"For I testify unto EVERY man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, if ANY man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if ANY man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. For I testify to EVERYONE who hears the words of the prophecy of this book." Revelation 22:18-19

What about "Easter"? Where is the Bible authority for God's people to observed that? Is there any authority to add "Easter" to God's Word? is "Easter" in the "covenant" of Christ?
