Easter Introduction

The First Sunday after the First Full Moon after Spring Equinox

Then the season of Easter lasts until Pentecost

 …“Don’t be afraid. I am the first and the last, and the Living one. I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore… Revelation 1:17-18

Happy Easter!  He’s Alive!  Christ suffered death and was buried and on the third day He rose again in accordance with the Scriptures!

When the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, bought spices, that they might come and anoint him. Very early on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb when the sun had risen. They were saying among themselves, “Who will roll away the stone from the door of the tomb for us?” for it was very big. Looking up, they saw that the stone was rolled back.

Entering into the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, dressed in a white robe, and they were amazed. He said to them, “Don’t be amazed. You seek Jesus, the Nazarene, who has been crucified. He has risen. He is not here. Behold, the place where they laid him! But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He goes before you into Galilee. There you will see him, as he said to you.’” Mark 16:1-7

 

In dying He destroyed death and in rising He restored life!  Easter is such a momentous event that one day cannot hold the joy that it brings.  For this reason there is an entire spiritual season of Easter!  Since it is a spiritual season and not a physical one it is outside of space time.

The season of Easter is 50 days long.  Seven weeks, a week of weeks, plus one day.  The Eighth day of the week, meaning the Day of the Resurrection, the day that lasts eternally!

Easter Prayer

Alleluia!  You’re Alive!  Lord Jesus, You have overcome death!  You have restored life!  Because of You the gates of Heaven are open to me.  Not because of my deeds but by Your grace alone.  Thank you!  Thank you!  Help me to live the rest of my life to show the Love that You have given me.  Alleluia!  Amen.

 

Peace be with you.
