The life of Jesus is a miraculous one. He spent thirty-three years amongst us living life as fully God and fully human. Before His birth, over three hundred messianic prophecies were written in the Old Testament. Not surprising, our Lord Jesus fulfilled them all.
Many have trouble believing all prophesies written about the Messiah could possibly be fulfilled, however, testimony to each prophesy is found in the New Testament.
Prophesies that range from a virgin in Bethlehem giving birth, to Jesus being pierced on the cross, then resurrecting.
All three hundred or more prophesies of Jesus have come true, and the math that helps us understand this miracle points only to Jesus as the Messiah!
Worshipping God is an outward action, public or private, affirming He is more powerful than us.
Acknowledging that truth through song, dance, prayer, meditation, or reciting The Word, is a believer’s desire. Christian hearts long to worship our LORD because we are drawn to Him. We desire to be in His presence, feel His love, communicate with Him. As we worship the LORD we are spontaneously in His presence no matter our true location.
God doesn’t care where we worship – His care is that we worship.
Easter is the holiest of celebrated holidays to Christian believers. It is the resurrection of Jesus our savior—The One who was crucified then came back to life three days later. Resurrection is the core of Christianity.
Through Jesus’ resurrection mankind receives salvation—deliverance from sin. We come to understand this truth through Bible study, attention to biblical sermons, and heartfelt prayer. God’s word truly is a love letter for mankind to read and enjoy.
To understand the significance of The Cross one must imagine the horrific scene on Calvary hill. Calvary, also called Golgotha (meaning skull), was immediately outside Jerusalem’s walls. Calvary is where Jesus hung, where He was crucified – His earthly body nailed to a man-made cross.
In those days of Israel a cross was a means by which convicted criminals were put to death. Crucifixion was perfected by the Roman empire as a manner of execution; the convicted humiliatingly stripped bare then nailed to a cross outside the city walls. They hung in that specific area, until dead, for all who enter the city to gawk at and beware.
Jesus, the only sinless man in all the world, was falsely found guilty of a crime and sentenced to an excruciating death on a cross.
