Matthew 28: 1-61In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. 2And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. 3His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: 4And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.5And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. 6He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
Dear Brother and Sisters,
Easter is one of the most important times of the year for a true christian believer. A believer of Christ honors this time and his birth... or they should. In the religious world they consider Easter to be a sacred time of praying, fasting and worship; still practiced by Catholics, Lutherans, Episcopalians, and other Judeo Christian followers.
I have taken a reflective look at our situation in the apostolic world on how we honor this time of the year. What I see is not what it should be. These religious denominations take it quite serious ...even the whole week of Easter for praying and fasting and reflection. I have been to some of these services and is inspiring to see that people who do not have the Holy Spirit in their lives to give great consideration to the LORD. They reverence this time of year and I respect their efforts. I pray that we [the people with the Holy Spirit in our lives] would follow their example. We need to humble ourselves, pray fast, worship, and do deep soul reflection on where we stand as if we were in the presence of the Almighty GOD. HE who has given so much for us is deserving of honor , respect, and much worship.
I thank JESUS so much for the Easter Blessing HE has given me. This means a lot to me because he has sacrificed so much for us to have a HAPPY EASTER. I pray blessing on all the families of our church and to all those across this great nation as well as those overseas the happiness in JESUS.
Help me pray that people of the MOST HIGH would reverence this Holy Week with respect and honor that is due our Savior.
To all a Wonderful, Marvelous, and Fantastic EASTER. He is Risen!
Brother Sam Mireles
