FREE Daffodil Poster with Bible verses from Romans 6:4-6; free printable

Do you know anyone who has ever risen from the dead? We can visit the grave of every other person who has ever lived and died. Princes. Kings. Queens. Tyrants. Dictators. World famous leaders. Everyone who has paraded through the pages of history, including ALL other religious leaders. They were all created beings, just like the rest of us. But if you visit the grave of our Lord Jesus Christ, you will find that it is EMPTY. Why? Jesus Christ is God… the Creator of the universe, King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He only needed it for the weekend!

The Creator ~ vs ~ the created.
That’s the difference.

He is not here. Everyone body else is, but HE IS RISEN!

Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
And that he was buried, and that he rose again
the third day according to the scriptures.
1 Corinthians 15:3-4

*

Easter (or more accurately, Passover) finishes off the Christmas story. That little baby in the manger grew up to die on the cross. For my sins. For your sins. He was born to die, so that we could have eternal life! And this is the Gospel – the GOOD NEWS!

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16

That’s YOU! That’s me! Wow!!!

BIBLE VERSES ~ Read the true story for yourself!

Matthew 26–28 | Mark 14–16 | Luke 22–24 | John 18–21  Read what really happened with the true life accounts of eyewitnesses who were there in that first century. Most of whom were cruelly tortured and lost their lives for insisting that it was true and that they really had seen the risen Lord Jesus Christ.

John 3:16   For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 1:12   But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name.

1 Corinthians 2:7-8  But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory; which none of the princes of this world knew; for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

Isaiah 53  But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all… (and lots more; make sure you read the whole chapter; fabulous)

Isaiah 50:6-7   I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair. I hid not my face from shame and spitting. For the Lord GOD will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed.

John 8:58-59  Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. [He claimed to be God!] Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

Psalm 22  This prophetic passage by King David reads as if it was dictated by the Lord Jesus Christ from the cross, but it was written centuries before crucifixion was even invented, and 700 years before it actually happened.

BIBLICAL EASTER ~ DEVOTIONALS | PREPARING OUR HEARTS | SORTING OUT FACT FROM FICTION

Triumphal Entry ~ FREE article, colouring pages, puzzles, article, crafts and creative ideas for kids; this aspect of the Easter/Passover story is what I am concentrating on for my kids this year. I was astonished (and they will be, too) to learn that Daniel was given the exact date – to the very day – that the Messiah would present Himself as King! That is why Daniel’s team of Magi came to visit the Christ child at Christmas time. They had been counting… and were expecting Him. And it took Scotland Yard to figure it out for the rest of us.

The Amazing Scarlet Worm  Have you heard the amazing story about the scarlet (or crimson) worm? The female adheres herself permanently to a tree, lays her eggs protectively under her body, covers herself and her eggs with a scarlet dye, and literally gives her life to feed her young. A crimson spot is left on the branch that dries out in 3 days, then changes to white as it flakes off. This tiny insect is an amazing picture of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Meshiach Nagid (the Messiah The King); read more about it then share it with your child

Free printable Bible Poster; Revelation 1:5; Jesus loved us and gave His life for us; Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto Him that loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood

Spring = God’s Promise of Eternal Life  “Not death, Toots – life. Resurrection life. Eternal life… Walter told me to come out here and see God’s promise for myself… Oh the wonder of it. The outrageous beauty. God didn’t have to give us cherry blossoms, you know. He didn’t have to make apple trees and peach trees burst into flower and fragrance. But God just loves to splurge. He gives us all this magnificence and then, if that isn’t enough, He provides fruit from such extravagance.”  Share this wonderful word picture with your child.

Seven C’s of Gospel History – Christ  (creation.com; scroll down to ‘Seven C’s of Gospel History #6 Christ’) Jesus was one of us; Jesus died for us; Jesus rose from the dead; How do I receive forgiveness of sins?; illustrated article for kids; free printable

Did Jesus rise from the dead?  (creation.com; scroll down to ‘Did Jesus rise from the dead?’) When Jesus’ disciples told Thomas that Jesus had risen from the dead, Thomas’ reaction was, “Unless I see in His hands the mark of the nails, and place my finger into the mark of the nails, and place my hand into His side, I will never believe” (John 20:25). And who could blame Thomas? After all, who had ever heard of anyone coming to life after being dead three days?; illustrated article for kids; free printable

Good Friday, Thursday, or even maybe Wednesday?  (Dr Chuck Missler) Jesus declared that He would be in the heart of the earth three days AND three nights. Nowhere in the Gospels does it assert that Christ was crucified on a Friday. So how does it all fit and where did this tradition come from?

What really happened at Easter?  (Dr Chuck Missler) Busting myths and legends. Ever wondered what rabbits have to do with eggs? Most of us are aware that many Christmas traditions have pagan origins and very little to do with Biblical events. However, we may be surprised to discover that much of what we have been taught about Easter is not only in error, but deliberately so.

Passover  (Dr Chuck Missler) Passover is perhaps the most universally familiar of the seven feasts of Moses… God told Moses that the Hebrews were to take an unblemished lamb, keep it with them for four days and then kill it. Then they were to take the blood of that lamb and put it on the doorposts and the lintels of their house… And that very night the Death Angel passed through Egypt, and houses that had the blood on the doorposts and on the lintels were “passed over” by the Death Angel and the firstborns inside were spared.

The Blood  (happyhomefairy) When the angel saw the blood, he simply passed over the house. He didn’t open the door to peek inside and make sure everyone was behaving properly. God didn’t expect the Israelites to be perfect behind those doors. It was THE BLOOD that saved them. And that is our own sweet story, dear friends. Our lamb is Jesus.

Sermon notes from Chuck Smith  Some great thoughts to include in your letter – ‘I was once held in the bondage of sin, but through grace, Jesus paid the price to give me my freedom’… ‘Though He was rich, yet for our sakes He became poor…’

What is your favourite Easter reflection?  Isaiah 53 is a well known Easter reflection. Psalm 22 reads as though it was dictated from the cross. But I had never thought of Lamentations 3 as an Easter reflection before. Have you?

A glimpse into Christ’s suffering  (answersingenesis) by a modern medical doctor; the physical suffering that Jesus willingly endured was beyond horrific. To understand the extent of His suffering is to get a better glimpse of His love for us and the price He was willing to pay to redeem each and every one of us. It is freely available to all. The choice is ours.

Every time we will look at His face we will know how much we are loved  Ever wondered why nobody seemed to recognise the Lord Jesus after the resurrection, until He spoke to them or showed them His hands? I wonder if these Bible verses are a clue. Dr Chuck Missler has a look at this strange mystery…

THINK SPOT:  How many of your sins were yet future when Jesus hung on that cross 2000 years ago? Answer: ALL of them! How many of your sins were a surprise to Him? Answer: None of them. Remember that, if you are ever tempted to think that ‘the rest is up to you now’ or that you need to be ‘good enough’, or that you need to ‘try harder’ to ‘earn’ your salvation. We can NEVER add to what Jesus has done on the cross. That’s blasphemy. Or that you have blown it ‘too badly’ to ever be forgiven. We all have. Remember the Christians’ bar of soap – 1 John 1:9. It was written TO people who were already Christians. NONE of us ‘deserve’ to be forgiven. That’s why it’s a very precious gift.

C.S. LEWIS QUOTE:  “A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice… You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronising nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.”

THINK SPOT:  Have you ever stopped to think about the crucifixion from the Father’s perspective? How much He must have loved you and me to stand by and allow His only and beloved Son to be tortured so badly and treated so arrogantly by sinful humanity, to pay the penalty of death for our sin.  :o

Jeremy Camp: Overcome  a fabulous song to listen to while you are working on your package

Jeremy Camp: King Jesus  All creation shook on that very day The Lamb was slain; then redemption came to anyone who would call His name.

Dance your shoes off with 2,000 people from Texas having lots of fun and celebrating the resurrection of the Lord Jesus in a powerful way. Each participant left a new pair of shoes on the field for those in need. What a fabulous, fabulous idea! Here is a global version. From every tribe and every nation, on the same day, thousands of Christians all over the world praised Jesus Christ’s resurrection with dancing!

Rejoice! Jesus is Alive! He is risen!
