The Resurrection Of Jesus Christ is The Greatest Single Event In Human History

Dear Family of Our Lord Jesus Christ,
Welcome to Wednesday! PRAISE GOD!
May God bless you and yours forever and ever!
Oh my, the Holy Spirit is moving in a powerful way through my office and home….oh my, I have not felt this much Godly energy in months. Amen! Praise God!
My discernment has been raised to a new level! Thank YOU LORD!
Right from wrong is made very clear by our Lord.
Soak yourself in God’s Word, says the Lord.
Do you sense the Holy Spirit with you this day, if you do not call me please.
Are you consistent in our Lord in all that you do and say?
Do not say anything or do anything without the Lord telling you to do so.
Words of Billy Graham…….
The resurrection of Christ changed the midnight of bereavement into a sunrise of reunion; it changed the midnight of disappointment into a sunrise of joy; it changed the midnight of fear to a sunrise of peace. A Cross in the Sun

We have this note from Angelo Winfield on the passing of his Mother……..

From Adrian Rogers…….
“How much more shall the blood of Christ, Who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?” Hebrews 9:14
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

What an amazing life the Lord Jesus lived. Do you realize that Jesus never corrected, withdrew, or amended any statement He ever made? I wish I could say that! Jesus Christ never apologized for anything He ever did or said. Jesus Christ never sought advice from anyone, never had to ask for forgiveness.
Jesus Christ doesn’t have any strong points. For Him to have strong points, He would have to have weak points. Robert Clark has rightly given this assessment of his character:
“There was meekness without weakness, tenderness without feebleness, firmness without coarseness, love without sentimentality, holiness without sanctimoniousness, lowliness without lowness, truth without error, enthusiasm without fanaticism, passion without prejudice, heavenly mindedness without forgetfulness, carefreeness without carelessness, service without servility, self exaltation without egotism, judgment without harshness, seriousness without somberness, mercy without softness.”
WOW! AWESOME WORDS!
Victory_over_Death_by_osbjef“Men of Israel, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know. This man was handed over to you by God’s set purpose and foreknowledge; and you, with the help of wicked men, put him to death by nailing him to the cross. But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him. — Acts 2:22-24
Peter’s great sermon on the Day of Pentecost looks back at the events of Passover and the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ to show that it was the plan and purpose of God in His crucifixion. The resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead—is the greatest single event in human history. This is why we celebrate that day on the Christian calendar. The word for “raisedis the compound verb anastasis. Ana means “up” and stasis means “to stand.” God stood Jesus up. He was on a stone slab in a cave—a lifeless corpse. There was no more breath coming from his lungs. His heart had stopped. His brain was dead. His life was gone. But God . . .
“But God” raised him from the dead. It was an absolute impossibility that Jesus could stay dead. He had done nothing to deserve death—he was sinless. This, too, Peter boldly proclaims, was the fulfillment of a prophecy from Psalm 16 by King David, “I saw the Lord always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will live in hope, because you will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay. You have made known to me the paths of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence.” — Acts 2:25-28
Do you know, my friends, that this prophetic statement, written by the Jewish King David, over 1000 years before the event itself—not only was fulfilled in Jesus Christ but this very same promise also applies to you and me today? The resurrection of our body from death—because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ is the promise of Christianity to all who believe. “For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive” (1 Cor. 15:21-22).
Every one of us has lost to death, someone we deeply love and miss. Let your hearts be glad—for all in Christ will be made alive again. They will stand up—and so will you. Oh, what a wonderful day that will be when we will see our loved ones once again and enjoy their companionship for all eternity. All because of our Lord’s victory over death in our behalf. — Maranatha
Pastor Don Kimbro
Thank you so much for this blessing Pastor Don!
Again from Billy Graham……..
When the devil tempted Jesus, it was a

real temptation. He tempted Him to

turn stones into bread and feed all the hungry

people (see Matthew 4:1–4). Jesus could

have done it, but He was here to take people

to Heaven, to give them eternal life. And He

could do that only by going to the cross and

taking their judgment and their Hell. From

the cross He was saying, “I love you. I love

you, whoever you are.” He would have died

on that cross if you had been the only person

in the whole world. He loves you. You are

important to Him.

Outside the influence of the cross there is

bitterness, intolerance, ill will, prejudice,

hatred, crime, and war. That is why—if the

world does not turn to Christ, and Him

crucified and raised from the dead—we

could see the judgment of God falling upon

our world.

READ: 1 CORINTHIANS 15:29–34

Wednesday

Have you met Christ at the foot of the cross,

turned from your sins, and put your life

completely under His control?
We are praying for you and yours as we prepare for Good Friday and resurrection Sunday.

Ecclesiastes 3:1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
Ecclesiastes 3:2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted

From a sorrowful heart, I need to let you know that as of today, Monday, April 14, 2014, my mother left us and went with the Lord. This is just a quick update, more information will be given out later.

Thank you for your support and prayers.

Angelo Winfield
Angelo has been a dear friend for years…..please keep the family in your prayers. I talked to him by phone yesterday.
I am praying for my message on Sunday and also working on putting it all together, please pray for me……and all Pastor’s. Here is one of my favorite Easter stories…….

There once was a man named George Thomas, pastor in a small New England town. One Easter Sunday morning he came to the Church carrying a rusty, bent old bird cage, and set it by the pulpit. Eyebrows were raised and, as if in response, Pastor Thomas began to speak….

“I was walking through town yesterday when I saw a young boy coming toward me swinging this bird cage. On the bottom of the cage were three little wild birds, shivering with cold and fright. I stopped the lad and asked, “What do you have there, son?”
“Just some old birds,” came the reply.
“What are you going to do with them?” I asked.
“Take ‘em home and have fun with ‘em,” he answered. “I’m gonna tease ‘em and pull out their feathers to make ‘em fight. I’m gonna have a real good time.”
“But you’ll get tired of those birds sooner or later. What will you do then?”
“Oh, I got some cats,” said the little boy. “They like birds. I’ll take ‘em to them.”
The pastor was silent for a moment. “How much do you want for those birds, son?”
“Huh??!!! Why, you don’t want them birds, mister. They’re just plain old field birds. They don’t sing. They ain’t even pretty!”
“How much?” the pastor asked again.
The boy sized up the pastor as if he were crazy and said, “$10?”
The pastor reached in his pocket and took out a ten dollar bill. He placed it in the boy’s hand. In a flash, the boy was gone.
The pastor picked up the cage and gently carried it to the end of the alley where there was a tree and a grassy spot. Setting the cage down, he opened the door, and by softly tapping the bars persuaded the birds out, setting them free.
Well, that explained the empty bird cage on the pulpit, and then the pastor began to tell this story:
One day Satan and Jesus were having a conversation. Satan had just come from the Garden of Eden, and he was gloating and boasting. “Yes, sir, I just caught a world full of people down there. Set me a trap, used bait I knew they couldn’t resist. Got ‘em all!”
“What are you going to do with them?” Jesus asked.
Satan replied, “Oh, I’m gonna have fun! I’m gonna teach them how to marry and divorce each other, how to hate and abuse each other, how to drink and smoke and curse. I’m gonna teach them how to invent guns and bombs and kill each other. I’m really gonna have fun!”
“And what will you do when you are done with them?” Jesus asked.
“Oh, I’ll kill ‘em,” Satan declared proudly.
“How much do you want for them?” Jesus asked.
“Oh, you don’t want those people. They ain’t no good. Why, you’ll take them and they’ll just hate you. They’ll spit on you, curse you and kill you. You don’t want those people!!”
“How much? He asked again.
Satan looked at Jesus and sneered, “All your blood, tears and your life.”
Jesus said, “DONE!” Then He paid the price.

The pastor picked up the cage and walked from the pulpit.
Amen!

For Us He Died

And this by Shari…….

He’s Singin’ Our Song!

From Billy Graham……. Please read 1 Cor. 15: 22-28
Who looks forward to turning on the
news these days? All we seem to hear
about are problems. People are losing jobs and
savings. A person can get depressed listening
to it all, and many people are fearful. If you are
facing hardship during these tough times, my
heart goes out to you. Life isn’t always fair or
easy. You may feel you do not know where to
turn. But one of the Bible’s greatest truths is
this: God never abandons us when life becomes
difficult. He is always with us and wants to
help us, even when things seem to be going
wrong. He does not guarantee to reverse every
misfortune, but if Christ lives in our hearts, we
have His promise that nothing “in all creation,
will be able to separate us from the love of God that
is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:39). What
a guarantee! Instead of being fearful about the
future, this Easter we can trust and believe that
God is working a purpose in our lives. We can
have hope!
Despite troubles and bad news, are you able to
rejoice in the Gospel—the Good News of your
salvation in Christ Jesus?

Eternal News: Resurrection Sunday

prayersundayDear Family of our Lord Jesus Christ,
As the world spins out of control…..Don’t you hear it groaning?
We come to gather here at the CUP! Amen!
We pray that you all had a wonderful Palm Sunday!
We surely did.
Satan attacked me in my sleep last night and tried to twist my mind to fear and sickness…..I got up at 1:30am…….when back to sleep about an hour later, now working away here. I find that Satan attacks me before, during and after a breakthrough. Please pray protection over all our children and Sharon and myself please.
Please pray for me this week as I prepare my Resurrection Sunday message for the folks at the Baptist Church in Reserve.
I’m excited in the Lord, it’s my first time I have ever had the blessing of giving the main message on Resurrection Sunday! Thank YOU LORD!
How are you are you preparing for Resurrection Sunday?
We continue to prepare our hearts, souls, and minds for Resurrection Sunday……….today, at sunset Passover begins. Pastor Paul Holt is going to share on Passover, Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday today at 12:05pm MT on ‘The World We Live In’ on KDAZ AM730. You can also listen to the program on the FGGAM.ORG website. www.fggam.org Just click on the KDAZ listen now banner. We also will have the audio up on the website later today or Tuesday, Lord Willing!
Interesting! last week we had people from Germany listening to our program on the website! PRAISE GOD!
Everyday, Lord Willing, I study God’s Word and His way’s, not mine. At this time of year as we approach Resurrection Sunday, I’m preparing my Sunday message and also continue my ‘growing’ in the Lord, with the help of people like Chuck Swindoll, who I believe is one of the best ever Christian writers we have. From Chuck Swindoll in his book, “David”: When we look for people to admire, when we choose our role models, our heroes, we are often swayed or impressed by things that are a cause for boasting. We want the beautiful people, the brilliant people, the “successful” people. We want the best and brightest. We are terribly enamored of the surface. The superficial impresses us much more that we’d like to admitchuck swindoll. We even elect a President because he looks good on television!”
But God says, “That’s not the way I make my choices. I choose the nobodies and turn therm into somebodies.”
Who are your heroes? Who do you really pattern your life after? Who do people say you remind them of?
Billy Graham helps us prepare for this week…………
READ: 1 CORINTHIANS 15:11–21
Monday
As we gaze on a confused and frustrated
world, this Scripture comes to mind:
“For since in the wisdom of God the world through
its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased
through the foolishness of what was preached
to save those who believe” (1 Corinthians 1:21).
The idea of our world being saved by Christ
on the cross was foolishness to the proud and
boastful Corinthians of the Apostle Paul’s
time, who thought that the wisdom of the
world was vested in them. And there are many
people like them today. But how different it is
for those of us who in simple faith know Christ
and Him crucified. For us, as the apostle wrote,
the cross of Christ is the power of God and the
wisdom of God.
We have been saved by His grace and mercy.
We do not deserve it, we did not pay for it, we
did not work for it. It has been given to us as a
gift. It is by the work of our Lord Jesus Christ
on the cross—and by His resurrection—that we
can claim any right to the great Kingdom that
is yet to come.
When others look at you, do they see the hope
that you have in Christ, both for this life and
for eternity?
Powerful words as always from Billy Graham. It’s kind’a where the rubber hits the road is it not?
When people look at you and me, do they see Jesus Christ?
I have posted this before, but many want and need this post by Darlene……
My Dear friend Darlene Quiring of Mt. Lake Minnesota has this to share with us to study over, pray over and absorb into our heart, mind and soul.
Please forward this to all of your friends! Amen!
Christ and the empty tomb. Mary Magdalene discovers Jesus’ tomb was empty
(see John 20:1-10)
The morning after Jesus had been placed in the tomb, Mary Magdalene went to visit the tomb. It was very early in the morning and it was still dark outside.She saw that the stone had been removed from the front of the tomb and that the tomb was empty.
She ran to Peter to inform him what she had seen. Then, Peter and another Apostle, John, ran to the tomb to see for themselves. The body of Jesus was gone and the only thing left behind was the cloth that was used to wrap his body for the burial. The Apostles were confused, they did not understand what was happening. How could the tomb be empty? Where was the body of Jesus?
Jesus appears to Mary Magdalene
(see John 20:10-18)
The Apostles returned to their homes. But Mary Magdalene remained by the tomb, crying. Then she turned and saw a man who asked her why she was crying. Mary Magdalene soon realized that the man who was talking to her was Jesus Christ. Jesus had risen from death. Mary Magdalene was the first person to see the resurrected Jesus.
Resurrection appearances
The resurrection of Jesus Christ was the beginning of Christianity. If Christ had not been resurrected and seen by many people (more than 500), Christianity would not exist today. Jesus made twelve appearances after his resurrection:1. His first appearance was to Mary Magdalene, on that early Sunday morning. (Mark 16:9; John 20:10-18).
2. Jesus appeared to the women returning from the tomb. (Matthew 28:9-10).
3. Jesus appeared to two disciples on the road to Emmaus. (Luke 24:13-32; Mark 16:12-13).
4. He appeared to Peter in Jerusalem. (Luke 24:34; 1 Corinthians 15:5).
5. He appeared to his disciples and other followers, and also a second time to the two men from Emmaus, in a locked room in Jerusalem. The apostle Thomas wasn’t there at that time. (Luke 24:36-43; John 20:19-23).
6. A week later, Jesus again appeared to his disciples behind locked doors, and this time Thomas was present. (John 20:24-29).
7. Jesus appeared to seven of his disciples on the shore of the Sea of Galilee. (John 21:1-24).
8. Jesus was seen by 500 believers at one time. (1 Corinthians 15:6).
9. He appeared to James. (1 Corinthians 15:7).
10. He appeared to eleven disciples on a mountain in Galilee. (Matt. 28:18-20).
11. He walked with his disciples along the road to Bethany, on the Mount of Olives, and then ascended into Heaven. (Luke 24:50-53).
12. He was seen by Paul on the road to Damascus. (Acts 9:3-6; 1 Corinthians 15:8).
Jesus appears before Thomas
(see John 20:24-29)
Some people had doubts that Jesus had risen from death, that he had been resurrected. After all, the Romans drove nails through Jesus’ hands and feet and later pierced his side with a spear to make sure he was dead. And now there were people claiming to have seen Jesus alive again. The Apostle named Thomas had doubts, as explained in John 20:24-29 (NIV translation):Now Thomas (called Didymus), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe it.”
A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.”
Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!” Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
The significance of the resurrection
(see 1 Corinthians 15)
1 Corinthians, which was written by a disciple named Paul, the 15th chapter of this book explains the significance of the resurrection of Jesus. It says that Jesus died for our sins. (see 1 Corinthians 15:3). It also says that our faith would be meaningless if there had been no resurrection (see 1 Corinthians 15:17). And it proclaims that Jesus was resurrected. (see 1 Corinthians 15:20). Paul is one of the people who saw Jesus after the resurrection.
The Great Commission
(see Matthew 28:18-20)
After the resurrection, Jesus met with his disciples on a mountain in Galilee and gave them a command to go out and evangelize to all people:Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:16-20 NIV).
In Matthew 28:19, Jesus mentions the triune nature of God when he speaks of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. This is referred to as the “holy trinity” and also as the “triune nature of God,” meaning that God is three-in-one. Christians believe in one God – one God who is God the Father, God the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Jesus ascends into Heaven
(see Mark 16:19-20)
After he had told his disciples to go out into the world and preach the word of God, Jesus ascended into Heaven:After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God. Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it. (Mark 16:19-20 NIV).
The return of Jesus
(see Matthew 24)
The New Testament explains that Jesus will return in the future to judge the living and the dead and to establish eternal peace.There are several verses that refer to Jesus’ return, including Matthew 16:24-28, Matthew 24, Matthew 25:31-46, Mark 8:34-9:1, Mark 13, Luke 9:23-27, Luke 17:20-37, Luke 21:5-38; John 6:39-40, and John 14:3.
In Matthew 16:27, Jesus is quoted as saying that the “Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what he has done.”
The book of Matthew, chapter 24, describes a series of signs that will occur before his return. We are told that all of these signs will manifest themselves during the span of a single generation: “This generation will not pass away until all these things have taken place” (Matthew 24:34).
But we don’t know which generation that will be.
In Mark 13:32, we are told that “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.”
There has been a great deal of speculation as to whether we are presently living in the generation that will witness all of the signs described in Matthew 24. Many people have tried to predict when Jesus will return only to be proven wrong. The Bible warns us not to worry and reminds us to be prepared, spiritually. For believers, Jesus’ return will be a glorious event.
God Bless you Darlene Have a Blessed Resurrection Sunday.
Let us all prepare our hearts, minds and souls for this time of year…but also, everyday we should put on the Amour of God.

Peter Cried Out, “Never, Lord! This Shall Never Happen To You!”

Silhouettes of Three CrossesDear Family of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Praise God that I can be here with you another day!
May God Bless you and yours forever and ever!
Once when Jesus told His disciples that He would suffer and die, Peter cried out, “Never, Lord! This shall never happen to you!” Matt. 16:22. No doubt he spoke for the twelve. If I had walked with Jesus then, Peter would have spoken for me as well. But Jesus sharply rebuked Peter. He would not be turned aside from His mission. Luke wrote, “As the time approached for Him to be taken up to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem” Luke 9:51.
Every day of His adult life stretched out ahead of Him like a narrow road. More than anyone else He knew that the script for His life had already been written across the pages of the Old Testament. As He made His way toward Golgotha, with every step He knew—–detail for detail, agony by agony—-how it would end and what it would cost.
Written by Michael Card
Amen and Amen!
Palm SundayAs we prepare for Palm Sunday, which is this Sunday, Passover begins on Monday at sunset, Good Friday is next Friday and then comes Resurrection Sunday on April 20th, we have this from Billy Graham: When in Eastern Europe years ago,

I discovered that Christians there

often greeted each other with the phrase,

“Christ is risen!” Invariably the response

came back, “He is risen indeed!” I was

struck with their understanding of the

reality and excitement of the resurrection,

for “if Christ has not been raised …

we are of all people most to be pitied”

(1 Corinthians 15:17, 19).
When I picture Jesus Christ dying on

the cross, I see the free gift of God’s

grace in Christ reconciling to Himself all

those who believe and repent. Grace occurs

when something we don’t deserve is given

to us freely. It is the free gift of God to needy

men and women. Paul said, “God made him

[Christ] who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in

him we might become the righteousness of God”

(2 Corinthians 5:21). When Christ bore our

sin on the cross, He created a value of grace

and righteousness that changes the lives of

men and women, and it still works today!

The truth “that Christ died for our sins according

to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3), and that

truth alone, has relevance to mankind today.

That is because there is saving power in Christ’s

cross to transform any life and to

change the world.

How has the gift of

God’s grace changed

your life? Will you

share your story this

week so that someone

you know can be made alive in Christ?

GOD ANSWERS PRAYER

I LOVE YOUTH! These next two stories will touch you greatly…….
As we prepare for Resurrection Sunday I found this story to have the message of Jesus Christ. Jesus came to serve not to be served. I pray that this story inspires you! Cayden Taipalus, 8, decided to take action. The third grader at Challenger Elementary School in Howell, Michigan saw a friend forced to give up his hot lunch because his account balance was overdue; Taipalus decided to make a change and pay off the account balances for all the students at his school.
Cayden came home upset when his friend was forced to give up his hot lunch simply because his account was overdue. He came home and told his mother about the situation and decided he wanted to help his friend and all those who were forced to go without a hot lunch. Together they returned empty bottles and cans and asked for donations from family and friends.
The story grew thanks to a local radio station, and the donations then poured in from the city, state, country, and even abroad. Each one helped pay for a student’s hot lunch, which made Cayden extremely grateful and excited.lunch balances
Not only has Cayden paid off the accounts at his own school, but with the money he’s raised, he’s been able to visit five schools to pay off lunch accounts for students he didn’t even know.

We pray for the softening of hearts, as we approach Resurrection Sunday, I pray that stories like this will lead more people to stand up for the love of Jesus, to feel the true love of our Lord, Amen! The parents of a first grader are suing a Pennsylvania school district, accusing it of violating their son’s constitutional rights when a teacher forbade him from distributing Valentine’s Day cards containing a religious message to his classmates.
Donald and Ellen Abramo filed a lawsuit in federal court Monday on behalf of their son, identified in legal documents as “J.A.,” against the Nazareth Area School District in Northampton County, Pa. The lawsuit alleges that J.A.’s constitutional rights were violated by a first grade teacher at Shafer Elementary School in Nazareth during a class “Friendship Day” party on Feb. 19, when the young boy attempted to pass out Valentine’s Day cards to his fellow classmates.
The school’s policy banning candy in class caused J.A. and his siblings to create Valentine’s Day cards with the message of St. Valentine written on the piece of paper. The message read: “Happy Valentine’s Day! St. Valentine was imprisoned and martyred for presiding over marriages and for spreading the news of God’s love. In honor of St. Valentine’s Day, I want you to know that God loves you!!!” It also included a reference to John 3:16, according to the lawsuit.
When J.A.’s teacher spotted the religious message on the cards, she reportedly brought the issue to the attention of the principal. She then removed the religious notes from J.A.’s Valentine’s Day cards, and the school principal later told the Abramo family that religious messages could not be distributed on campus during school hours.
The suit says that one of the boy’s siblings was able to hand out the cards to his third grade class because the teacher failed to notice the religious notes attached to each card.
Let us cover all in our prayers.

Special CUP In Memory Of Marv Boone

I just got off the phone with Shirley Boone, the wife of Marv Boone. I am in tears as I write this, as one of my best Friends ever has left us. Radio legend Marv Boone passed away today at age 83 after suffering a stroke one month ago. Marv was the news voice in Cleveland on WHK for 16 years . I met him when he became the News Director at WFRN radio in South Bend/Elkhart, Indiana. Marv will always be known for his Paul Harvey type delivery and ending his newscasts with the ‘Medical bag’ and the ‘Bumper sticker of the day’ Marv and his lovely wife Shirley have lived in Inman, South Carolina for several years. Please keep Shirley in your prayers. There will be no funeral held, as Marv wanted it that way. Marv was just an outstanding man, a true man of God,Marv Boone an awesome husband, father and broadcaster. I will always treasure my times with him and Shirley.
This picture is of Marv and his son, Marv Jr. who himself is a broadcaster. ‘Marvelous Marv’ is how is known in the radio world in Florida. This picture was taken not long ago.
I will add this…..This past Christmas, Marv slipped in a note in the Christmas card that he sent me, that said this, “Remembering you as the best true friend I’ve ever had”
Marv, I wish I had been a better friend and that we had seen each other again. But we will. Amen! Love you brother!

Encouragement For Your Day

Dear Family of our Lord Jesus Christ,
We pray today that the CUP encourages you in our Lord in greatness for HIM and HIS Kingdom! Amen!
These are all the things God wanted me to share with you today……..
“Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.” Dale Carnegie
Amen to that! We go forth here everyday at FGGAM in the hope of Jesus Christ, Amen! Michelle Blood shared that, she is a longtime friend from Californiaencouragement!
God will not give relief to His children who purposely walk away from His will. Chuck Swindoll
Word’s of wisdom from Chuck! Amen to that!
We Praise God for this report!I think this is such a wonderful report, especially as we head toward Resurrection Sunday! I pray that the American Church be Resurrected. Let this be a strong message to Christians all over the World! Amen!human shield Thousands of Christians formed a human shield around the newly-constructed Sanjiang Christian Church in China’s Zhejiang Province after police officers with bulldozers threatened to demolish it, according to International Christian Concern.
The human shield that they formed saved the Church from destruction.
The standoff at the church reportedly began after a visiting Communist Party secretary said the church was too large.
“When the Party secretary Xia Baolong visited the local areas, he found the cross on top of the church very conspicuous. So he ordered that it be demolished,” church leader Zheng Leguo told ChinaAid.
The standoff was unusual in that Sanjiang Church is part of China’s Three-Self Patriotic Movement and that its congregation was officially sanctioned by the Communist state.

PURE JOY

This Devotional was sent to us by my Dear friend Sonja Haldeman in Surprise Arizona it is just fantastic! As we prepare for Resurrection Sunday!
April 10, 2014
He has Risen!
Mary Southerland
Today’s Truth
He is not here; he has risen! (Luke 24:6, NIV).
Friend to Friend
The boys and girls in Mrs. Stephens’ fourth grade Sunday school class entered the room and quickly found their seats. The girls were dressed in frills and lace and chatting excitedly about the candy-filled baskets they had received that morning. The boys pulled at the unfamiliar ties around their necks and quickly discarded the sports coats they had obviously been forced to wear. The room was filled with excitement – for good reason. It was Easter Sunday.
Mrs. Stephens wanted to help her students understand that there is so much more to the Easter holiday than new clothes, chocolate bunnies, and egg hunts. Easter is more than family gatherings and tables filled with luscious food. Easter is about life. Easter celebrates the certainty of Jesus’ death on the cross, the fact that He was buried, and the reality that He came out of that burial tomb to conquer death so that we can live now and eternally.
Mrs. Stephens came up with a plan. After sharing the Bible story of Jesus’ resurrection, she gave each one of her students an empty plastic egg and said, “We are going to take a walk outside, and I want each one of you to find one sign of life and put it in your plastic egg.” As the children filed out of the room, Mrs. Stephens noticed Danny, a little boy with Down syndrome who had been coming to her class for some time. His bright smile and sunny disposition had immediately won her heart. In fact, when it came to Danny, she often thought he had taught her so much more about the unconditional love of God and the joy of simply being a child of God than she could ever teach him. When she heard the other children make fun of him, it broke her heart. She always corrected the children and tried to help them see just how special Danny was, but Danny seemed oblivious to their hurtful words, and thought of each child as his “buddy.”
The children soon returned from their walk, depositing their eggs on the teacher’s desk as they made their way to their seats. Inside one student’s egg was a butterfly. In another was an ant. Others had collected flowers, twigs, blades of grass and leaves to fill their eggs. But one egg had nothing in it. Everyone knew whose egg it was. Mrs. Stephens silenced the giggles with a look of warning. When she asked Danny why he had not put anything inside his egg to show signs of life, his face broke into a huge grin as he responded, “Because the tomb was empty.”
Danny got it. He truly understood the profound truth of Easter. The empty tomb is the ultimate sign of life and a miracle like none other.
Jesus Christ had risen from the dead. The women knew Jesus was dead. Some of them had seen Him die. And they were sure His body was in the tomb; it had been there since Friday. But when they went to anoint the body on that Sunday morning, the tomb was empty! The body could not have been stolen. Nobody was playing tricks on them. They were not merely fooling themselves. The miracle was real. They could see the empty tomb with their own eyes. Jesus Christ really had risen from the dead!
Spend some time today thanking God for the miracle of life. And then share the good news with someone else: He is risen! He is risen indeed!
Let’s Pray
Father, Thank You for the miracle of life – abundant life here, and eternal life with You in Heaven. Help me celebrate that life every day as I seek You and follow Your plan for my life. Today, I say with the Apostle Paul, “Where, O death is your victory? Where, O death is your sting?”
In Jesus’ name,
Amen.
Now It’s Your Turn
Consider this truth: Satan has no answer for the empty tomb. What does the resurrection of Jesus Christ really mean to you?
Set aside time today to remember what Christ has done for you through His death on the cross and His resurrection from the dead. Read Luke 24 and celebrate the life only He can give.
More from the Girlfriends
I would love to have been there that morning when the women went to the tomb – expecting to deal with death and instead found life, wouldn’t you? You may be dealing with death in your own life – the loss of a loved one – the death of a dream – the pain of a broken body. Just as Jesus Christ rose from the dead, He can breathe new life into your heart and mind. Right now, quietly turn to Jesus. He is waiting for you – healing and restoration and new life are in His hands.
You can make Mary’s MP3, Celebrate Life, part of your Easter celebration. Are you discouraged and ready to give up? Enroll in Mary’s weekly online Bible Study, Down … but NOT Out, and learn how to face and deal with the pain in your life. Be sure to connect with Mary on Facebook or through email.

Kelly’s Word For The Day~

God showed me to share this excellent post by Dr. Charles Stanley on something we all deal with..it is just AWESOME!

Looking Beyond Disappointment

Read | John 11:3-6
When disappointments come your way in life, it is easy to blame both yourself and others. Frequently it’s difficult to know what to say or do, because you cannot quite identify the real cause or purpose of the letdown.
Disappointment is often an emotional response to our own failure—or someone else’s—to achieve a desire, hope, dream, or goal. This can lead to losing faith in a person on whom we were depending, possibly even a loved one.
The gospel of John tells us that Jesus loved Martha, her sister Mary, and their brother Lazarus. Because of this, the two women didn’t sense the need to tell the Lord anything more than “He whom You love is sick” (John 11:3). Their expectation was that as soon as Jesus heard these words, He would come and heal their brother. But the Lord didn’t set out for two more days.
When Martha met Jesus, she was disappointed because He hadn’t come right away, and His delay allowed Lazarus to die. She didn’t see His purpose.
But truly, God does have a reason for the disappointments He allows in our life. He could prevent them, but He wants us to discover His purpose. His desire is that we will operate out of trust and let our circumstance bring glory to Him (John 11:4, 25).
When disappointments come, will you be stalled and derailed from the Lord’s will for your life? Or will you find yourself beginning to understand His purpose so you can learn from those situations? The right response is simply to trust Him.

What Does It Mean To Be After God’s Own Heart?

burning-red-heart-in-flamesDear family of our Lord Jesus Christ,
We pray that God Blesses you and yours forever and ever! Amen!
sam_slickFrom Chuck Swindoll’s book, ‘David’: “It’s as if God says, “I don’t care about all the slick public image business. Show me a person who has the character, and I’ll give him all the image he needs. I don’t require some certain temperament, I don’t care if he has a lot of charisma, I don’t care about size, I don’t care about an impressive track record. I care about character! First, is the person deeply authentic in his or her spiritual walk or is he faking it? And second, is he or she a servant?”
There is way too much ‘slick public image’ going on in this world we live in, and also in the Church.
So today on Facebook, Shari Hardway Johnson, The Jesus Chick, who posts here at FGGAM,we love her so much! Anyhow, she posts on Facebook that it is ‘National Cherish an Antique Day’…..and say’s “there are so many people I could tag on this post” LOL! I am thankful that Shari ‘Cherish’s’ this antique called Dewey! LOL LOL! It made my day…as I do feel like an ‘antique’ in this world……an old ‘fuddy duddy’ to be more like it!
Thanks for making me laugh today Shari……….It’s great to laugh at one’s self.antique
As I work everyday of my life in ministry for God’s Glory Alone….I feel more and more,’not of this world’ we are taught that, Amen! So today Shari’s post remided me of that…..and as we prepare for Resurrection Sunday………this scripture……
Jesus Before Pilate John 18: 35-37

…35Pilate answered, “I am not a Jew, am I? Your own nation and the chief priests delivered You to me; what have You done?” 36Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, then My servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; but as it is, My kingdom is not of this realm.” 37Therefore Pilate said to Him, “So You are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say correctly that I am a king. For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.”…
Let me go back to Chuck Swndoll’s book on ‘David’
I am stuck in Chapter 1! I find at times I get stuck on one chapter for days and weeks and have to absorb it, reabsorb it………and more and more! I’ts like a bottomless CUP!!!! LOL!!! Just like the BIBLE!!!!
My comments appear in (Dewey’s comments)………….
Swindoll writes….The first quality God saw in David was spirituality. “The Lord has sought out……a man after His own heart.”( I remember when I was first told that…that I was after God’s heart…..I wept with joy! I am still after God’s heart..everyday! Amen!) What does it mean to be a person after God’s own heart? Seems to me, it means that you are a person whose life is in harmony with the Lord. What is important to Him is important to you. What burdens Him burdens you. (I’m telling you folks, that not enough folks are burden with what burdens God!) When God says, “Go to the right,” you go to the right. When He says, “Stop that in your life,” you stop it. (He did that to me at KKIM and then sent me to FGGAM, and He did it to me in softball, a game I adore, He said STOP, I stopped.) When He says, “this is wrong and I want you to change,” you come to terms with it because you have a heart for God. (This is where so many struggle) That’s bottom line Biblical Christianity.
When you are deeply spiritual, you have a heart that is sensitive to the things of God. A parallel verse in 2 Chronicles confirms this:
For the eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His. 2 Chronicles 16:9

Seven Perfect Words And Those Middle Of The Night Phone Call’s

Not My WillDear Family of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Today I have been praying for many people, my sister Deb who lost her Mother-in-Law back in Feb. Mary Rogers became like a Mom to Deb after our Mom passed away nearly 20 years ago. To my very good friends who are in the midst of doing taxes for others right now, Lew Wallach, Cathy and Ernie Beleanger, praying for you all during this time! My brother Craig Price, who used to be CPA, would sleep at his office during tax season on some nights! I also called my 93 year old Uncle Bob in Upland, California this morning, getting harder for him to hear…….time flies the older you get…..praying for Shirley Boone as she sit’s by her husbands bedside, Marv, my dear friend who is on his death bed. I am in tears as I write this, because I do not see this world we live in valuing life. I posted a story at FGGAM.ORG this morning about a Jesuit Priest who was murdered in Syria.

Jesuit Priest Murdered In Syria

I struggle with a world that stands by and let’s the killing of women and children and Daddy’s go on in Syria and other parts of the world, like Sudan. Also praying for my friend Angelo Winfield and family as his Mother has cancer and is under hospice care.
Please keep all in your prayers.
Seven Perfect Words………….
In Gethsemane, Jesus is locked in combat with a human desire we all recognize: to avoid pain, to hold onto life, to win against death. In these dark night hours, Jesus’s flesh and feelings are at war. “If it is possible…,” he groans.
Do you see what is at stake for us in that struggle? If Jesus’s human desire does not lose, we will never win. If He doesn’t suffer this temptation, we will never be able to overcome when we are tempted.
Until Gethsemane, Jesus’s life has been one continual yes to the Father. And that doesn’t change this night in the garden. The only begotten Son is on a mission of love and the Father’s desire is for Jesus to finish the work He has been sent to do.
Where does Jesus find the strength to overcome? I find the answer in seven perfect words in Luke 22:42…..
Not my will, but thine, be done.
At Gethsemane, although Satan has done his best to confuse and deceive Him, Jesus chooses painful obedience. If choice is one side of the coin in overcoming temptation, then cost is the other.
Not my will, but thine, be done.
He is willing to lose all so that we can win all.
Michael Card in ‘A Violent Grace’
Very powerful, very moving, do you agree?
I pray that we never forget those seven perfect words, I pray everyday that they are on the tip of our tongue.
We fight that human desire everyday don’t we….
We are at war with the flesh……..is your life one continual YES TO GOD?
WOW! Think of life as one continual YES TO GOD!
Amen!
We sure try and avoid pain and death don’t we……….
Satan tried to confuse and deceive Jesus, He chose painful obedience…….
What is your hourly choice?
Are you prepared for one of those middle of the night phone call’s out of the blue. How do you prepare for that 6am phone call I got from my brother on April 19th, 1992 Easter morning that our Dad had died suddenly of a heart attack? Can you prepare for those calls at all? How do you prepare for that call that your family member was just in a bad car wreck at 3am? or how about a call that your son has been arrested?
We are so very blessed here at FGGAM by this real life story by Shonda Savage. I say blessed, because we are blessed by her sharing the heartache and the victories of her family. This is real life. It takes a very strong person of God to share what Shonda shares. She shares because God has told her to do so, to help others. Some ‘talk it’, but Shonda and her husband Eldon and son Stephen put it out there for God’s people. I believe a book and movie will come out of this for God’s Glory Alone! God has shown me a book and movie for this family as a testimony!
Let me turn this over to Shonda………..
I’ve prayed God’s word for many years now and I’ve seen God do amazing things.
Stephen in Cameroon
Stephen in Cameroon
When my oldest son, Stephen, was sixteen, we went on a short-term missions trip to Cameroon, Africa, together. While there, I saw the call of God on his life to minister the Word. But after we returned from Africa, Stephen began to turn away from the things of God and he began his prodigal journey.
Though I had concern, okay I’ll be honest—though I worried about him, I thought he would experience some trouble like most of us have. I figured he would go through the “I want to party and be irresponsible phase” and then eventually come to his senses like the boy in Luke 15.
I even had other people tell me, “Don’t worry Momma; he’ll be okay.” My friends with adult children went through similar experiences with their sons and daughters, and their kids finally got realistic and turned into productive members of society. I believed that would happen for Stephen.
As a mother, I prayed regularly for my son. After writing a Bible Study on Hosea, I came across a Scripture that I prayed specifically for Stephen. I prayed Hosea 2:6 which reads:

“Therefore I will hedge up her way with thorns, and I will build a wall against her, so that she cannot find her paths” (ESV).

hedgeA hedge is like a fence. It can be used to keep out things you don’t want in or to keep things in, which you don’t want to let out. In the above passage, God blocked Gomer, who was Hosea’s adulteress wife, from pursuing her own wicked desires.
God answered, however, in a way I least expected.
Stephen began drifting off. Though he drank and dabbled with drugs, he had never had a DWI, or any drug related charges.
But when we received the middle of the night phone callthat he had been arrested, my mind could not conceive it. That was not who my son was or who he is. I never imagined him capable of doing such a horrible thing.
Struck hard by this tragedy, I became filled with brokenness and heartache for the losses that happened to the victims and their families. And at the sense of loss of all the potential I knew that was in my son to live a productive life.
At that moment in time,I had to make a choice —
believe God or turn away from Him.
In John 6, Jesus taught some hard teaching that many people of his time couldn’t understand so they deserted him. Jesus asked his closest disciples, “Are you going to leave me too? Simon Peter replied, ‘Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words that give eternal life’” (John 6:68).
I knew in my heart that there was no where else to turn.
God was and is all I have to hold onto. Apart from Him there is NO LIFE!
Nine months after that tragic night and after the middle of the night phone call, Stephen was convicted and sentenced to twenty years in state prison by jury.
So it seemed that God was not answering my prayer for my prodigal son to return home — to return to the God of his youth.
Stephen in TDCJ
Stephen in TDCJ library
However, after Stephen’s conviction, the Lord showed me He did answer my prayer. He reminded me of how I prayed Hosea 2:6 and God literally “fenced” or “hedged” in my son by placing him in prison.
In a prison cell, Stephen repented and returned to the Lord. He began witnessing to those around him and has led other inmates to Christ. (I shared this Easter salvation testimony last year — Rejoice Over One.) Stephen has planted the word of God in men who will other wise never hear the gospel because in prison, church is optional and even if you choose to go, there are only so many seats available and it’s a first come first serve by dorm.
In the midst of my worst nightmare, I continue to chose to believe God. I decided to stand on God’s word because He loves my son more than I do.
I truly believe that if God had not “hedged” my son in and he had been released or used as a witness instead of being convicted as an accessory, he would not have turned away from the lifestyle he was delving into. And to confirm that, I recently received a letter and this is what Stephen wrote:
“I’m sure God spared me from a lot! Speaking of addictions and what not. If God had not pulled me away from that lifestyle, I would most likely gone even further down hill. I probably would have become addicted to drugs and only gotten worse. So I thank God He saved me.”
So my friends, see our prayers are powerful. God answers our prayers, but not always like we expect. We must trust that God knows what is best for us and our loved ones even when we do not understand.
********************
Jail_CellStephen shares the love of Christ deep inside the prison walls — his assigned mission field at this time. Stephen serves in places that prison ministries cannot reach as those ministries are limited. Attending church services and weekly classes are optional for qualified inmates. Not all inmates are qualified to attend based on their behavior status.
Because of where Stephen is serving, I ask you to pray for him that he will be a light of Jesus our Savior to men that many have rejected and forgotten about. I also ask you to pray for his protection and safe keeping.

“Remember those in prison, as if you were there yourself” (Hebrews 13:3 NLT).

And finally, if you have a loved one doing time, I’d love to pray for you. The family here at FGGAM would love to pray for you. You are not alone. Please leave your prayer requests in the comments and I (and/or others from FGGAM) will respond in the comments with a prayer for you.
Thank you so much for blessing so many with this story Shonda, Eldon and Stephen. We love you all!
Let us be in constant prayer for Stephen, Shonda, Eldon and the entire family.
For Gods Glory Alone in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ, Dewey, Sharon and Family and all at FGGAM!
Let us keep praying for each other and our families

Are YOU Consistent In All YOU Do?

GriffinDear Family of our Lord Jesus Christ,
How are you today? Thank you for being with us! Love to you and yours!
Here is an email we got yesterday……
Dear Dewey,
I wanted to take a moment to let you know how much I appreciate your efforts with Dewey’s Daily Cup and For God’s Glory Alone Ministries. Your commentary has always brought attention to issues on our community that God fearing people should take note of, and your attitude is one of gratitude, which we can all learn from. We all need, and indeed in many cases seek, guidance or direction each and everyday we get up and address our day. Through scripture guidance and personal philosophy, you provide that ray of hope, that beacon of light to move forward in a positive way. Your undying Faith is a pillar for any and everyone who knows you. Throughout the years I have been blessed to watch you make these programs successful with little or no assets to get started. Your tireless work to make this work is such an incredible example of Faith, hard work, and a passion for providing spiritual guidance with a positive attitude.
My family and I have endured our own special issues, family difficulties, and hardships yet, through all of it you have been a source of strength. Whether it was through your Cup, FGGAM or a personal call to let me know you are thinking of us, it always seems to be the perfect message at the most perfect time! I truly believe that there are many more like me that are affected in a positive way because of your efforts but simply don’t write in to let you know. More importantly, there are those that are facing life changing or life altering situations in their life and have reached a point of hopelessness when your message is the only hope available at their darkest hours. We may never know completely how far your reach is, and truthfully I don’t think it is important to know, but, it is important to know you are reaching them. Your continued effort will always shine the Light on that which is dark, provide guidance for the lost through scripture, cast a smile upon those who don’t think they can take one more step, and provide a platform for those seeking help to receive it with open arms. I know this only because I have seen it firsthand. Dewey, may God Bless you and your family always, and may He shine His light upon all your endeavors. It is indeed wonderful to know you are never alone.
Warmest Regards,

‘The World We Live In’ Today at 12:05pm MT On KDAZ AM730

Have you read any of Chuck Swindoll’s books? WOW! I just love the man’s writings!
I am reading again his book on ‘David’ I learn every time I read this book, just like I learn every time I read the Bible.
What is coming through to me as I read the book again, is CONSISTENCY…
I have been taught to be consistent, I was taught that at an early age, at home, in school and Sunday school.
I have a very DEEP APPRECIATION for all those that post at FGGAM and for the one’s that post most everyday. And for those that consistently support FGGAM. They are consistent in our Lord.
I know all of you have had experience with inconsistent people. I admit, I am a sticker for consistency and I am very hard on myself when I think I am not being consistent.
Inconsistency is something I observe almost daily, even from Christians even Pastor’s.
When you say something, believe it, believe that you can do it with the Lord guiding you.

Ecclesiastes 9:10

Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might, for there is no work or thought or knowledge or wisdom in Sheol, to which you are going.

Revelation 3:15-16

“‘I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.
Do not commit to something that the Lord has not confirmed for you to do.
People sometimes want so much to do something so bad to help, that they over commit. They commit to something they cannot do. I understand that, as I have done that.
It is better not commit or it is better to under commit than to commit or over commit.
The inconsistency of Christians is not the testimony we want to put forward. I see people start something, commit to something and then drop out of sight, whether it’s a ministry, a program, support, family activity, counseling for themselves, stop smoking, stop drinking or whatever they may commit to.
We still post our news headlines on facebook (We plan to continue that) and I will post a few personal notes there, but nothing like I used to. I am sadden as to how many Christians are using facebook to air their dirty laundry or the dirty laundry of others or even worse yet, use vulgar language. This all fit’s into, inconsistent behavior and a horrible testimony to an unbelieving world. Too many Christians are showing an unbelieving world just what they want to see, CRAZY OUT OF CONTROL CHRISTIANS.
I have come to the realization over the years that inconsistency hurts God.
It hurts the Kingdom.
It sure does not fit under ‘Kingdom Keepers’
I posted today a letter from Rick Griffin where he talks about the ministry of the Daily CUP and FGGAM.
17 years of consistency. Now, yes, there are some days I do not post when I get tied up with ministry work or I am out of town, for that I apologize, but I try to be consistent. People like Karen Rowe have filled in for me and I am forever grateful for that!
Many people seem amazed when I will call or email asking how they are or how the Doctor’s appointment went, they wonder how I remember, so do I! LOL!

Some days it is hard, I wait upon the Lord for the message to post on the CUP, the one HE wants me to post. I sit in front of that cold hard looking computer screen some mornings and say Lord take my fingers and land them on the keys you want them to land on! LOL! Please pray me up everyday as I prepare to post.
People want to see a consistent message, they want to see that you are consistent.
One of the reasons we are in trouble down here on earth is because of ‘inconsistent behavior’.
Even Christians.
Being now here at FGGAM, we rely on all volunteers and supporters. I have such a DEEP APPRECIATION for those that have been consistent with us now for 18 months. We also have been having new people join us and we are so thankful for that. It takes consistent people for a ministry to be consistent.
I pray that we all become more consistent for Jesus Christ and His Kingdom! Amen!
For God’s Glory Alone in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ, Dewey, Sharon, family and FGGAM.
Let us keep praying for each other and our families.

April 20th is Resurrection Sunday.
I am praying on my message for Resurrection Sunday, I will be Preaching at the Reserve, NM Baptist Church. Please pray for my message, the Word’s of God, not mine.
People have been going to FGGAM.ORG and reading this post in preparation for Resurrection Sunday. It was sent to us last year.
It is so inspiring that people are preparing their hearts, minds and souls for Resurrection Sunday.
My Dear friend Darlene Quiring of Mt. Lake Minnesota has this to share with us to study over, pray over and absorb into our heart, mind and soul.
Please forward this to all of your friends! Amen!
Christ and the empty tomb. Mary Magdalene discovers Jesus’ tomb was empty
(see John 20:1-10)
The morning after Jesus had been placed in the tomb, Mary Magdalene went to visit the tomb. It was very early in the morning and it was still dark outside.She saw that the stone had been removed from the front of the tomb and that the tomb was empty.
She ran to Peter to inform him what she had seen. Then, Peter and another Apostle, John, ran to the tomb to see for themselves. The body of Jesus was gone and the only thing left behind was the cloth that was used to wrap his body for the burial. The Apostles were confused, they did not understand what was happening. How could the tomb be empty? Where was the body of Jesus?
Jesus appears to Mary Magdalene
(see John 20:10-18)
The Apostles returned to their homes. But Mary Magdalene remained by the tomb, crying. Then she turned and saw a man who asked her why she was crying. Mary Magdalene soon realized that the man who was talking to her was Jesus Christ. Jesus had risen from death. Mary Magdalene was the first person to see the resurrected Jesus.
Resurrection appearances
The resurrection of Jesus Christ was the beginning of Christianity. If Christ had not been resurrected and seen by many people (more than 500), Christianity would not exist today. Jesus made twelve appearances after his resurrection:1. His first appearance was to Mary Magdalene, on that early Sunday morning. (Mark 16:9; John 20:10-18).
2. Jesus appeared to the women returning from the tomb. (Matthew 28:9-10).
3. Jesus appeared to two disciples on the road to Emmaus. (Luke 24:13-32; Mark 16:12-13).
4. He appeared to Peter in Jerusalem. (Luke 24:34; 1 Corinthians 15:5).
5. He appeared to his disciples and other followers, and also a second time to the two men from Emmaus, in a locked room in Jerusalem. The apostle Thomas wasn’t there at that time. (Luke 24:36-43; John 20:19-23).
6. A week later, Jesus again appeared to his disciples behind locked doors, and this time Thomas was present. (John 20:24-29).
7. Jesus appeared to seven of his disciples on the shore of the Sea of Galilee. (John 21:1-24).
8. Jesus was seen by 500 believers at one time. (1 Corinthians 15:6).
9. He appeared to James. (1 Corinthians 15:7).
10. He appeared to eleven disciples on a mountain in Galilee. (Matt. 28:18-20).
11. He walked with his disciples along the road to Bethany, on the Mount of Olives, and then ascended into Heaven. (Luke 24:50-53).
12. He was seen by Paul on the road to Damascus. (Acts 9:3-6; 1 Corinthians 15:8).
Jesus appears before Thomas
(see John 20:24-29)
Some people had doubts that Jesus had risen from death, that he had been resurrected. After all, the Romans drove nails through Jesus’ hands and feet and later pierced his side with a spear to make sure he was dead. And now there were people claiming to have seen Jesus alive again. The Apostle named Thomas had doubts, as explained in John 20:24-29 (NIV translation):Now Thomas (called Didymus), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe it.”
A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.”
Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!” Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
The significance of the resurrection
(see 1 Corinthians 15)
1 Corinthians, which was written by a disciple named Paul, the 15th chapter of this book explains the significance of the resurrection of Jesus. It says that Jesus died for our sins. (see 1 Corinthians 15:3). It also says that our faith would be meaningless if there had been no resurrection (see 1 Corinthians 15:17). And it proclaims that Jesus was resurrected. (see 1 Corinthians 15:20). Paul is one of the people who saw Jesus after the resurrection.
The Great Commission
(see Matthew 28:18-20)
After the resurrection, Jesus met with his disciples on a mountain in Galilee and gave them a command to go out and evangelize to all people:Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:16-20 NIV).
In Matthew 28:19, Jesus mentions the triune nature of God when he speaks of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. This is referred to as the “holy trinity” and also as the “triune nature of God,” meaning that God is three-in-one. Christians believe in one God – one God who is God the Father, God the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Jesus ascends into Heaven
(see Mark 16:19-20)
After he had told his disciples to go out into the world and preach the word of God, Jesus ascended into Heaven:After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God. Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it. (Mark 16:19-20 NIV).
The return of Jesus
(see Matthew 24)
The New Testament explains that Jesus will return in the future to judge the living and the dead and to establish eternal peace.There are several verses that refer to Jesus’ return, including Matthew 16:24-28, Matthew 24, Matthew 25:31-46, Mark 8:34-9:1, Mark 13, Luke 9:23-27, Luke 17:20-37, Luke 21:5-38; John 6:39-40, and John 14:3.
In Matthew 16:27, Jesus is quoted as saying that the “Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what he has done.”
The book of Matthew, chapter 24, describes a series of signs that will occur before his return. We are told that all of these signs will manifest themselves during the span of a single generation: “This generation will not pass away until all these things have taken place” (Matthew 24:34).
But we don’t know which generation that will be.
In Mark 13:32, we are told that “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.”
There has been a great deal of speculation as to whether we are presently living in the generation that will witness all of the signs described in Matthew 24. Many people have tried to predict when Jesus will return only to be proven wrong. The Bible warns us not to worry and reminds us to be prepared, spiritually. For believers, Jesus’ return will be a glorious event.
God Bless you Darlene Have a Blessed Resurrection Sunday.
Let us all prepare our hearts, minds and souls for this time of year…but also, everyday we should put on the Amour of God.
Please pray and watch:
