The Beautiful Things Of Easter


The exciting Easter season is here again, and it's obvious in the atmosphere. However, beyond the eating and drinking and holidays, we must place emphasis on the most important thing: The Resurrection of Christ. Without the Resurrection, there won't be Easter celebration. 

A lot of folks celebrating Easter don't even know the purpose of the Resurrection - which explains why many abuse a day like this on sinful activities all in the name of Easter celebration. 

However, this is a time to reflect upon the great sacrifice Jesus Christ made for undeserving folks like us, and it should stir up worship in our hearts.

It is humbling to know that Jesus Christ was only compelled by Love to pass through the pain of death just to procure salvation to us and make humanity an honorable race once again. After man fell in the Garden of Eden, mankind lost the glory of God which it was originally clothed with, and we entered the class of mere animals. However, the resurrected Jesus Christ came to restore the glory, and we became creatures operating in the God-kind of class. If the Resurrection had not taken place and the process of salvation completed, we will still be ignorantly living below dignity, like animals of the wild! Thank You Jesus!

The Beautiful Things Of Easter: The Procurement Of Eternal Life

"Jesus said to her, 'I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die" John 11:25,26

John 3:16: "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life

The Resurrection ensured the tangibility of eternal life. The eternal life will be divinely obtained if "... you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved" (Romans 10:9). 

The life we obtained because of the resurrection, empowers us to overcome these five integral enemies of mankind. 

1. Death
2. Sin
3. Satan and Hell
4. Self
5. Sickness and Poverty

Because of space, I will only talk about Death here. If you need the full text of this message, contact me via https://www.sundayakanni.com/p/contact-me.html

Enemy Number 1: Death

"Knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God" Romans 6:9,10

The very first enemy God informed Adam of beforehand, was death. So when God told him to not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, He was only trying to secure him from an enemy he (Adam) wasn't aware of - death. Unfortunately, Adam and Eve, through disobedience, gave death the right to rule over them. 

Death became a nasty ruler over mankind, finding expression in different ways. It (death) first ensured separation between man and God (spiritual death), before it started weakening his body and soul, to the degree that his body can degrade and die. Death was having a field day terrifying mankind (death is usually excited when it makes mankind sorrowful), until God brought the solution. Jesus Christ died and resurrected, and faith in this will get us infused with eternal life (which is the perfect antidote to death).

So, we are no longer spiritually dead, as this eternal life (which comes with the gift of the Holy Spirit) awaken our spirits and makes us alive in the realm of our Source - God. The Spirit approve us that we are no longer separated from God, but are now His sons and daughters, even His Living Stones.

Additionally, we are empowered to pick our inheritances as sons of God - one of which is long life in this physical world. "With long life I will satisfy him, and show him My salvation" (Psalm 91:16). Permit no thought of premature death! You cannot die prematurely! In fact, nothing dies in your hands!


In conclusion, the celebration of Jesus' Resurrection should compel you to yield yourself to the LORD in total surrender. 

If you are yet to give your life to Jesus, today is the best day! Anywhere you are right now, ask Jesus for mercy, and ask Him to come into your life. He won't reject you!
