Today is April 8, 2012 and it’s Easter Sunday. I have compiled some articles about the true meaning of Easter which i want to share with my dear readers.
The true meaning of Easter, isn’t about the Easter Bunny, or dying eggs. The true meaning of Easter, is about the death , burial, and resurrection of our Lord, and Savior Jesus Christ. Christians all over the world, are celebrating what Jesus Christ did for us. Good Friday, is when Jesus went to the cross for all of humanity. It is for this reason that he came into the world to die for you and me, taken upon himself, every sin of all humanity. Jesus himself , explains it better than anybody ever could in these verses of the Bible. Matthew 16:21, and Luke 24:7. Matthew 16:21 From that time on Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, chief priests and teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life. Luke 24:7 The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.'”
Jesus, tried to tell his disciples many times , what his purpose was in coming into this world. But, the disciples hearts, were not receptive of what Jesus, was trying to tell them. Jesus, hid nothing from his disciples. They just didn’t listen to what he was trying to tell them. Yet, when it happened, they all were shocked. Would you be shocked if Jesus, had been trying to explain to you his fate? This is a picture of us. Jesus is always tugging at our hearts, trying to tell us to get right with God, and yet the hardness of our hearts , makes us blind , and deaf to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Nothing has changed. We close our ears, to what Jesus is trying to tell us to do in our circumstances in our life.
When Jesus, went to the cross, and was beaten, and marred and nailed to the cross . He was taking upon himself the beating , and judgement that should have been ours. The Bible says, that he was unrecognizable in Isaiah 52:14 Just as there were many who were appalled at him, his appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any man, and his form marred beyond any human likeness. This verse clearly tells us that Jesus, was so badly beaten, that you wouldn’t even be able to recognize him as being a human being. Those beatings were meant for us. What a sacrifice Jesus, made for us. He went to the cross, was buried in a tomb, and on the third day he rose from the dead. This is truly what Easter, is all about . What our Lord, and Savior accomplished for us on Calvary that fateful day. In the words of Jesus,” It is finished.” John 3:16 ” For God So Loved The World that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
