With So Much To Offer, Why Easter? By Karen Rowe

The Resurrection of Jesus the Christ begins with the Death and Burial of Jesus.  But the life of Jesus began way before Religious leaders tried to kill the King of the Jews; The King of God’s Glory.

I look around and see all God has to offer anyone looking for Jesus, but people choose the things that don’t matter.  Sex, Drugs, and then one day a year, people talk about Happy Easter?

Emma has been full of joy to play with her Easter toy “bunny rattle” for weeks now, but see; I won’t wait on a day called Easter to enjoy the joy Jesus brings.  This is the Day the Lord has made to enjoy with God . . . and heal, and mend, and repent, and seek the Lord while he can still be found in this world.

Jesus is coming again soon.

You belong to God.  God wants you to be with Him forever! We do too!

Are you ready Today?  Or are you waiting on that one day of the year?

Long ago, God created this earth, and everything in it, around it and the things that sustain it and life.  God did all this for us; and God did it for Himself.  God wanted to love us, and loved us before He made us, because God is love and God knew us before we were born.

Jesus too!  Not to take too long this way, but I was listening to the Psalms read last night:  I started listening at the verse of Today (Psalms 24:10) by the Bible App, which I do follow daily in my Daily Devotion to God’s Holy Word, …

Who is the King of glory?  The Lord of Heaven’s Armies -he is the King of glory.

INTERLUDE … Just pause and soak in the goodness of God!

Who is Jesus to you?  I pray you know Jesus for who Jesus is and what Jesus has done for you personally!  Friends, it is not Easter.  It is the life in Christ we celebrate!  It is Today that we have opportunity to love God and experience the love God has for us!  It is Today that we get the honor from God to know and love Jesus and be grateful for who Jesus is, where He come from -to where he came to; and all *FOR US!  And, all because God so loved the world (messed up people mislead by the spirits of the antichrist).  Get to know the Spirit of God and confess Jesus Is your personal savior.

I mean, if you want God in your life.  And there will be troubles, but Easter?

Only Jesus can teach us how to survive in this world daily.  And Today is a good day to have a good day.

Anyway, listen to the Prayers of David son of Jesse read aloud in the fullness of the word.

*Psalms 72:verse 20

(This ends the prayers of David son of Jesse.)

A mirror image of Jesus.

And then read Book Three (Psalms 73 – 89)

Ps 73…Verse 2 But as for me, I almost lost my footing.  My feet were slipping and I was almost gone.  Vs 3 For I envied the proud when I saw them prosper despite their wickedness.  They seem to live such painless lives; their bodies are so healthy and strong.  Vs 5 They don’t have troubles like other people: they’re not plagued with problems like everyone else.  They wear pride like ….

Does this resonate with you?  Why did Jesus come?  Why Easter … When God has so much more to offer!  We can talk about this … But Jesus is coming again soon!

I may have more to say * If the Lord whispers to me, but for now, I just wanted to promote the life of Jesus!  Jesus died, was buried and 3 Days later, was resurrected to the living again!  That’s all for us; God’s greatest Gift to us; and for us to see Jesus!   Think about this:  God didn’t have to let us see Jesus again, because we are more blessed to have faith without seeing.  But God did, because of this!

3 Days Later !

Jesus was buried and 3 Days Later the Resurrection was Resurrected!

This should rock your world!

Jesus come in the flesh!  A n d ,  a s  h e  w a s  i n  t h e  w o r l d  s o  a r e  w e .  Jesus overcome death and all temptation in the flesh & so can we by the same Spirit of God with us, in us and for us.  God’s love is with us friends!

If you hunt Easter Eggs, that’s okay, I may too, but it will be a game; not my foundation.

Jesus is the foundation of everyday life and life eternal!  Life eternal is to know God and know Jesus.

And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

John 17:3

I hope this helps you in your journey with & in (abiding in) God’s love for you.

Know Him as your Father and love Jesus as your Savior & Friend.  The Holy Spirit will lead, guide and direct your path of faith.

2 Scriptures to leave you with today:

1 John 4:2 “By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God,” . . .

 

Every spirit

that confesses that Jesus Christ

has come   in the flesh    is of God,” . . .

And the Verse of Today:

Psalms 24:10 “Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory.”

Selah

Take time to Measure the balances in the Wisdom from God.  Time belongs to God and this too is in God’s Time.

Flesh and Spirit are not equal measures;  we must weight spirit to spirit and then the flesh follows Jesus too.

Easter is just a term to me with all it’s traditions.  Don’t fret over how you dress that day more than another.  Integrity is a consistent heart dressed in the spirit of the Lord following Jesus.

With all God has to offer; Why Easter?

God is not mad at you.  God is calling you home to Himself.  Jesus, help the person(s) reading this to believe and take courage to confess You My Lord as who you are Jesus!  Jesus you are the Christ, the Son of the Living God!  This comes from God if you believe; not from me!  Jesus, you are the  King of Kings, and Lord of Lords and God’s greatest gift to us.  Thank you Jesus for praying for me.

If you just received Salvation in your heart through your gift of Faith in Jesus, you just gave God the greatest gift He ever wanted in all of His Creation!  This is something to Celebrate!

God celebrates you!

We praise and Honor Jesus!

To God be the Glory!

This is what was on my heart to say when Dewey asked me to post.  All I did was say yes.  And then typed the words I believe I heard in the spirit of Christ:  The mind of God.  I hope this is helpful.  God doesn’t measure us against our knowledge.  God measures us by His love for us.  That measure is Jesus.

So this Sunday and all Todays, I pray we wake up and pray: “I am grateful to You God, Creator of the universe, for this day.  May Your love and Compassion be reflected in everything I do.”

This prayer levels everyday to Jesus.

Holy Spirit you are welcome here.

Jesus Comforts Martha and Mary
John Chapter 11…Verse 24

Martha replied, “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.” 25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in Me will live, even though he dies. 26And everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this?”…

I pray this is encouragement to follow Jesus Daily every breath you breathe that is from God; and strength to you to lean in to Jesus for Courage to stay strong and very courageous in this world.

Jesus is the resurrection and the life!  He offers so much to us!  With so much to offer; Why Easter?  Why not every breath you take each Day as long as God calls it Today!

Jesus is Alive!  And as He is eternally living, so are we in this world alive!  Today and Forevermore!  Peace and Joy to you in the Light of Christ!  May He fill you will all Life and Blessings, with His strength and the Wisdom from Above to follow Jesus all the way to Heaven!  Now and forevermore!  Today and as long as God calls it today!

Jesus is coming again Soon.  Be filled with His Spirit and ready!

Jesus is the Resurrection and the Life!

Glory to God.

Love in Christ,

Meet Karen: Hi, I am blessed, by God's good grace and because I know Jesus, I am blessed. I choose to be blessed, because I have a choice set before me and I refuse to look down. I trust God and I know and believe in the love God has for us. I have overcome difficulties; and I am blessed by the grace of God alone. If I have written about it, then I have felt the pain of it in some way, and to some degree. Did you know that Jesus has felt your pain? This is why I write. By God's grace I can identify; and tell you honestly, yes there is hope in anything and everything that you are facing today! Jesus is our Hope! He is the Truth, the Way and the Life. I am married a wonderful man, Robert Rowe; I love my husband and he loves me; and we have been married for 28 years. Together, we have been blessed with a wonderful daughter, named Amanda who is college now; and a wonderful son, named Daniel who is growing up well and soon to graduate elementary school. We work together and by God's grace we run our own business called PSI. We have a pastor over our ministry and over our business and also we depend on him for advise in our family. We have 2 dogs, 4 horses, 2 cats and love to spend time outdoors by the water and by campfires ... that is it seems when we can find time away from life's busy schedule. I love to write because it helps me learn more about God. And, I am driven by a passion from a love that God has put in my heart to share from my experiences and struggles, as I gain understanding in God’s Word to know how effective and powerful God is over our every situation! I share with you so you can know that you are not alone in your struggles. The same God who helps me and my family, is your help and shield as well! Life is not always easy, but it is possible –I like to share the difference that following Jesus makes in my life. And, I love to share God's patience and mercy and love that is with me! I am not perfect, but am experiencing God sanctify me through and through with every mistake I make; and yes, overcome in Christ! Life is not just about the successes; life on this earth is also about the troubles we overcome to discover what God has hidden in our faith to find! Troubles are more a challenge to grow in our faith ... It is not easy, but in the end the grace of God we discover is worth experiencing God in the midst. By Grace, I have discovered Jesus is Peace and He is my Joy and Wisdom from Heaven. God is our Provider and Healer and Creator, who is our help and shield over all things. By grace, I have experienced a nearness to God through my faith in His Son! We are well forgiven by God; and well blessed when we know and believe the love that God has for us. To say, "all is well with my soul" is a powerful knowledge to understand and experience. I sense God's desire for you to know His love for you and how deep His love for you is that He has SO loved you; God gave you His Son. God loves you right now just as you are! There is so much to learn! I believe that as we learn from God, we are God’s gift to each other. It is all God’s story –and for His glory; and God has SO loved us. I love to paint the vision that God has given me about a Father’s love –that God wants you to dream again and visualize His love for you! In God’s eyes, there’s more to life than we see; and in a world that sometimes misrepresents and misunderstands God and love; God wants you to have the courage to dream His dream and see His vision of a Father’s love for you! Many years ago, I prayed to God, “How can I tell a million people what I know about Your Son?” God showed me I had a gift of a ministry about God's Love; and He called it Hope in Today! I write to please God and I write to encourage you; and I write to spend quiet time with God. All because of this love that God has first shown me! I need Jesus –and my life is about my relationship with God. And, every blessing begins with Him! Love in Christ, Karen Rowe, Director Hope in Today Ministries, Inc.
