The Big Event

Today we celebrate the most important event in human history.

On the first day of the week , roughly 1980 years ago, following the Passover festival, death was defeated.

Satan, the god of this world, the father of lies, was shown to the world in all his power when he couldn't even keep a dead man in the grave. On this day death and Satan were utterly defeated and God the Father, and His Son were shown to the world in all their power. Even death could not defeat them.

The coming of the Son of God and His ultimate Kingship over all the earth was predicted 1000 years before Jesus actually arrived in the 2nd Psalm.

Why are the nations in an uproar?
and the peoples devising a vain thing?
The kings of the earth take their stand
and the rulers take counsel together
Against the LORD
and against His Moshiach
(Heb: Moshiach Messiah, Grk: Christos Christ, Eng: Anointed One)
"Let us tear their fetters apart,
and cast their cords away from us!"

He Who dwells in the Heavens merely laughs,
The Lord scoffs at them.
Then He will speak to them in His anger
and terrify them in His fury.
"But as for Me, I have installed My King,
Upon Zion, My Holy Mountain.

I will surely tell the decree of the LORD
He said to Me, "You are My Son!
Today I have Fathered You!

Ask Me and I will give you the nations
as Your inheritance,
And the very ends of the earth
as Your possession.
You will break them with an iron sceptor
You will shatter them like earthenware.

Now therefore, O Kings, show wisdom
Take warning, O Judges of the Earth
Worship the LORD with reverence,
and rejoice with trembling.

Do homage to the Son lest He become angry
and you perish in the way.
For His wrath will soon be kindled
How fortunate are all
who take refuge in Him.


On this day we honor the promised Son of God, who defeated sin and death, and will soon defeat his enemies.

Then and only then, the world will know a true and lasting peace.

Come Lord Jesus.

I am going thru a personal crisis and have been praying several times a day. Thanking God the Father that Jesus was given so that all who receive him into their hearts shall have everlasting life.

AMEN!

like the Psalm said "How fortunate are those who take refuge in Him." Stay in prayer through your crisis, it does make a difference.
