Topic: The Significance Of The Easter [Sunday April 1, 2018]
Scripture: He is not here: for he is risen, as he said, come, see the place where the Lord lay. Matthew 28:6
Thought For The Day: When the enemy had done his worst, then the stage is set for God to do His best.
Today is Easter Sunday! The season of Easter is a season set aside to commemorate the Suffering, Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Today is of great significance as it marks the Anniversary of Christ’s Resurrection from the dead. The power of Christianity is anchored on the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Now, it is important to understand what Easter signifies; this is because when the purpose of a thing is not understood, misconceptions are unavoidable.
Now, Easter signifies that:
i) Life is stronger than death
The Resurrection of Jesus shows that life is stronger than death; light is stronger than darkness, and righteousness is stronger than wickedness.
ii) When the enemy had done his worst, then the stage is set for God to do His best
The Devil thought that he had done his worst by crucifying Jesus but God stepped in and took him by surprise through the resurrection.
iii) What is the end with man is the beginning with God
Where man ends is where God begins; God is the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.
iv) Nothing is too wrong to be righted by the Power of God
The worst situation on earth can be made right by the power of God.
v) God always reserves His best for the last
God does not do mega things in hurry; He does great things at unexpected times, especially at the end.
Beloved, I decree that every power of sin, sickness, weakness, poverty or failure holding you bound is neutralised today by the power of Resurrection in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: When the enemy had done his worst, then the stage is set for God to do His best.
1. Connect to the life of Christ that is stronger than death and decay by completely re-dedicating your life to God in this season.
2. Resist the lifestyle of sin, sickness, weakness and infirmity by the power of Resurrection of Christ.
Prayer: O LORD, thank You for the Power of Resurrection; I make demands on You for the manifestation of all the benefits of Redemption in my life, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
