Resurrection Day

“ When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus' body. Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb and they asked each other, "Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?"
But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.
"Don't be alarmed," he said. "You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter, 'He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.' "
Trembling and bewildered, the women went out and fled from the tomb. They said nothing to anyone, because they were afraid.
When Jesus rose early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had driven seven demons. She went and told those who had been with him and who were mourning and weeping. When they heard that Jesus was alive and that she had seen him, they did not believe it.
Afterward Jesus appeared in a different form to two of them while they were walking in the country. These returned and reported it to the rest; but they did not believe them either.
Later Jesus appeared to the Eleven as they were eating; he rebuked them for their lack of faith and their stubborn refusal to believe those who had seen him after he had risen.
He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well."
After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God.” –Mark 16:1-19

Easter isn’t about some cute, little, fuzzy bunny who gives out Easter eggs for good little boys and girls to find, but it’s about the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the grave.

My prayer is that you all will have a most blessed Resurrection Day!! God bless and take care on this wonderful day that we remember when the Lord Jesus Christ rose from the grave!

Yes, Most of America gets all caught up in thinking Easter is only a holiday for bunnies and easter eggs. What we need to remember is that this is the day that we celebrate Jesus' Resurection.

yeah that's true...even though a lot of people don't think so. The easter bunny is satan's way of sneeking into Easter and kicking Christ out.

"Easter" actually comes from the name for a god, Ishtar I believe. Which is rather disturbing considering that we're supposed to be celebrating Christ's ressurection.

To Lindsey: huh. That's interesting...
