HE IS RISEN

And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men. In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulcher.

And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre. And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus. And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments: And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.

And they remembered his words, Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him. Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre. So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre. And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in.

Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie, And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself. Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed. For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead. Then the disciples went away again unto their own home. But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre, And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.

And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him. And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away. Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master. Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

I’ll Rise Again — Dallas Holm


Someone rolled the stone away, was it a thief?
No, it was an angel.
Mary said, “He lives again.  Do you believe?”
Yes, He is my Savior.

He is risen.  Yes, my Lord is risen today.
There are linens with bloodstains,
That is all that remains
There’s no body left in that grave.

Father forgive them for they know not what they do

Each person in the story of redemption has their own perspective of what happened. However, one thing that is undeniable is that Jesus was and is the son of God. Today is a day that we remember the great sacrifice of Jesus Christ and how because of it we are saved and redeemed for ever. We are not bewildered like the disciples as we know Easter Sunday is coming! Must Read!

Gospel-road#66.1

The night Jesus was betrayed from Peters perspective
My eyes were so heavy, a spiritual darkness had descended on the land, I could not even stay awake. I saw my Lord agonising in the garden, even sweating drops of blood! He asked me only to keep watch and I failed my task! The night was deep and thick darkness was upon us. Jesus knew what was coming.
That betrayer arrived and gave Jesus a “friendly kiss”, Jesus still called him friend! Well, he was no friend of mine to do such a thing! The guards were armed but I took out my sword and struck one of them, cutting off his ear. My Lord told me to put my sword away, “those who live by the sword will die by the sword”, then he healed the man’s ear! I was scared, we all were, no fighting back… we were…

JESUS ENTERS JERUSALEM: MORE THAN A CONQUERER

And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were come to Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples, Saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me. And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say, The Lord hath need of them; and straightway he will send them.All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.

And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them, And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him thereon. And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way. And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest. And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this? And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.

One Day!

One day when heaven was filled with His praises,
  One day when sin was as black as could be,
Jesus came forth to be born of a virgin—
  Dwelt among men, my example is He!

Living, He loved me; dying, He saved me;
  Buried, He carried my sins far away;
Rising, He justified freely forever:
    One day He’s coming—O glorious day!

One day they led Him up Calvary’s mountain,
  One day they nailed Him to die on the tree;
Suffering anguish, despised and rejected;
  Bearing our sins, my Redeemer is He.

Living, He loved me; dying, He saved me;
  Buried, He carried my sins far away;
Rising, He justified freely forever:
    One day He’s coming—O glorious day!

One day they left Him alone in the garden,
  One day He rested, from suffering free;
Angels came down o’er His tomb to keep vigil;
  Hope of the hopeless, my Savior is He.

Living, He loved me; dying, He saved me;
  Buried, He carried my sins far away;
Rising, He justified freely forever:
    One day He’s coming—O glorious day!

One day the grave could conceal Him no longer,
  One day the stone rolled away from the door;
Then He arose, over death He had conquered;
  Now is ascended, my Lord evermore.

Living, He loved me; dying, He saved me;
  Buried, He carried my sins far away;
Rising, He justified freely forever:
    One day He’s coming—O glorious day!

One day the trumpet will sound for His coming,
  One day the skies with His glory will shine;
Wonderful day, my beloved ones bringing;
  Glorious Savior, this Jesus is mine!

Living, He loved me; dying, He saved me;
  Buried, He carried my sins far away;
Rising, He justified freely forever:
    One day He’s coming—O glorious day!

Well Done

The other day I was on Mandy’s blog, Blue Collar Theologian reading PQ’s 3!

“I am thankful that when I get distracted chasing leaves and other frivolous things that God redirects my path.”, Mandy Sweigart-Quinn

“It’s not lost on me that many people have come in and out of my life. What influence I’ve had or been subject to. Good or bad. How many missed opportunities? Time is short and you never know when a window will close. Am I the Ambassador I am called to be? Am I too busy doing… to seize the moment?”, Dave the Bible Student

Sunday some Scripture verses came to me. I was a bit out of it, getting ready to go to Church. I jotted them down, sort of, and saved as a draft. Been busy and sory for that password protected post yesterday. It was special instructions and Gift Codes for my Pastor to set up PocketBible. Today’s a rainy day so I’m back to those verses.


“His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” (Matthew 25:23) King James Version (KJV)

“I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.” — Paul (2 Timothy 4:7-8) KJV, BibleGateway.


“His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.” (Matthew 25:26-27) KJV, BibleGateway.

“And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” (Matthew 7:23) King James Version (KJV)


“According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” (2 Peter 1:3-4) KJV, BibleGateway.

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” (Matthew 7:13-14) KJV, BibleGateway.

Beloved,

Once again I am overwhelmed, too busy and failing to accomplish what I would like. I’m going to have to lengthen my productive day. Now that the days are longer and we’ve moved to Daylight Savings Time I fall away at sundown and can’t get much done between 6:00 AM and first light. So much work needs doing outside and dawn calls to me. I need to swap 6 for 5 just to get my quiet time in.


I came here today, at this time because this morning I was reminded of a series Bruce Cooper has been doing; Gospel of John Musings on, Reasoned Cases For Christ.

The latest is; musings-from-the-gospel-of-john-number-53/
My favorite is; musings-from-the-gospel-of-john-number-47/, Chapter Seventeen
The first one; musings-from-gospel-of-john-number-1/, Chapter One

I really really really enjoy this series! Perhaps I’m a bit partial to John and perhaps a bit partial to Bruce as well. He labors heavily in Apologetics but is a very competent expositor as you can see for yourself.

Thank You Bruce,

Worthy is the Lamb!

3/28/22

While I would like to continue studying out Philippians 1:29 here, I’m not able to stay on task. That has been interrupted and set aside for the moment due to ADD. I was shanghaied this morning while going through the mail bag. I follow many people, blogs and organizations via mail service, too many. Most of which just get a skimming, maybe a quick read. This mornings mail call delivered notice of a new post from Gospel-road#66.1, Once saved always saved? #challengingtopics.2.

Once Saved Always Saved is a monicker usually preceded by those who believe in, more often than not critical, in context. The “?” not withstanding, Deano writes not as a critic but recognizing a challenging topic and wanting to foster conversation seeking truth.

Within the Theological discipline of Soteriology exists a doctrine of Eternal Security, most common in Reformed Theology and associated with Calvinism. It is also considered a Baptist Distinctive in most traditions.

This is not the first time this discussion has surfiest within our WordPress family. Not the first time I couldn’t help but to throw in my two cents, via a lengthy comment, on someone else’s blog either. See: my past posts

Deano gave a good treatment: there wasn’t a lot to add and I didn’t disagree with it; rather concur and affirm, with my two cents.

He sighted the following Scripture… (Acts 4:2), (Romans 6:23), (Romans 10:9-10), (John 14:6), (Matthew 7:13), (John 3:16), (2 Timothy 1:9), (Ephesians 1:13), (1 Corinthians 3:15), (John 19:30), (Luke 23:42), (2 Timothy 2:19) (Matthew 12:24-37), (2 Corinthians 5:17).

Thought I’d post that comment, edited, here and link to his post. Please read his post and if led, comment.


We have many denominations within the Church. We have many Theologians, Teachers and Preachers. Many doctrines and traditions and no shortage of translations or commentary. Ones Soteriology is often the point of contention. It is deep, vast and full of truly challenging topics so often avoided. You could say we have many “faiths” to keep (keep the faith – the faith which we preach). One can renounce, change ones mind or turn from ones “faith and practice” (believe in vain – go out from us, not of us).

I am a sinner saved by Grace. Sin seperates us from fellowship with God. Often this can cause one to question ones salvation or faith in Christ but the Spirit himself testifies with our spirit to give assurance.

Mans problem is seperation from God. God’s solution is Jesus Christ who died for our sins according to the scriptures; was buried, and rose again the third day according to the scriptures, cf. 1 Corinthians 15. Faith is the conduit to Grace: it’s by grace we are saved through faith, cf. Ephesians 2. The result is the new birth, cf. John 3. (born of the Spirit – indwelt) “life in Christ” eternal, abundant and free! – signed, sealed and delivered! That’s Salvation (past tense – from the penalty of sin) – a point in time that manifests in Salvation (present tense – from the bondage of sin), and ultimately results in Salvation (future tense) Glorification!!! But God will not be mocked – many will identify as a Christian having works (present) without “Life” or Salvation (past) but that does not make them one. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. —Matthew 7:21-23. Note: The work of God is to believe on him whom he hath sent, cf. John 6:29.


Let me add: “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” –John 17:3 KJV

Thank you for posting about this challenging topic, Deano

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” —2 Timothy 2:15
