Besides bunnies and easter eggs, What is Easter supposed to be about?
Early Christians never rejoiced in the Rapture (in fact no Christians talked about that until 170-yrs ago) but they rejoiced in the RESURECTION! Jesus and His Kingdom represented eternal life! The goal of early Christians was not escapism but to bring the resurrection power and life, to earth, to set people and nations free. To bring the “Kingdom of Heaven” into their lives and not to escape planet earth. When Christ Jesus defeated sin and death and returned from the grave, he brought with him the keys to eternal life. He still releases from death those who turn from their sins in repentance and put their faith and trust in Him.
We rejoice because “He is risen indeed!”
Pastor Carl Henderson
