It is finished! On this Easter Sunday, we take time to line the streets to celebrate the reality Christ Jesus is victorious over sin and death. He is the conquering Lion and the sacrificial Lamb whose resurrection proclaims salvation and eternal life! This Easter, we celebrate that Jesus is the King of kings and the Lord of lords. He is the Christ and at his name EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW, IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH, AND UNDER THE EARTH, and every tongue confess that he is Lord to the Glory of God the Father!
you yourselves know what happened throughout all Judea, beginning from Galilee after the baptism that John proclaimed: how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him. And we are witnesses of all that he did both in the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem. They put him to death by hanging him on a tree, but God raised him on the third day and made him to appear, not to all the people but to us who had been chosen by God as witnesses, who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead. And he commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that he is the one appointed by God to be judge of the living and the dead. To him all the prophets bear witness that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.
