Mary Magdalene

John 20: 1-2 “Now early on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came to the tomb, while still it was dark, and she saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance to the tomb.  So she ran to Peter and John saying to them, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where He is.” Though Jesus had tried to reveal the truth that His time on earth would be temporary, evidently individuals could not fully understand and accept that truth. Mary was one of Jesus’ closest friends, and when she saw the empty tomb, she hurried …

Peter and John

Scripture: John 20: 3-9  “So Peter and John were going to the tomb; both of them were running together, but John outran Peter and arrived at the tomb first, and stooping to look in the tomb, he saw the linen cloth lying there, but he did not go inside. Then Simon Peter came. and entered the tomb. He saw the linen cloths lying there, and the face cloth, but in a place by itself. Then John, who had reached the tomb first entered the tomb, and he saw and believed: for as yet they did not understand the Scripture that Jesus would rise from death.” Before being too …

Thomas

John 20: 24-28  “Now Thomas, one of the Twelve was not with them when Jesus came. So the other disciples told him, they had seen the Lord.  But he said to them, “Unless I see in His hands the mark of the nails, and place my finger in His side, I will not believe.”  Eight days later, His disciples were in a room and Thomas was with them. And though the doors were locked, Jesus came, stood among them, and said, “Peace be with you!’ Then Jesus said to Thomas, ” Put your finger here, and see my hands, and place it in my side. Do not doubt, but believe.” Thomas responded, …

Two on the Way to Emmaus

Luke 24: 13-19 “That day two men were going to a village named Emmaus, about seven miles fromJerusalem. And they were discussing all that had happened, and while they talked,Jesus drew near and walked with them, but their eyes kept them from recognizing Him. When Jesus asked about their conversation, the man named Cleopas answered Him, ” Are you the only visitor in Jerusalem who does not know about the things which have occurred during the past few days? Jesus said, “What things?” Then they tried to explain all the latest events, and the day was almost over; so they invited Jesus to remain with them. After their …

My Response to the Resurrection

“For God so loved the world, He gave his only Son that whosoever believes in him, should not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but so individuals might be saved through Him.”  John 3: 16-17. The first twenty-one years of my life were lived without Jesus as my personal Savior. I had been raised in a home by loving parents, but did not have the privilege of attending Sunday school and church services. Then I married and my husband was not a believer. But he had his parent’s Bible, sometimes I read portions of …

The Resurrected King

The Lamb of God was dead.  He had been sacrificed as prophesied by Old Testament prophets. Everything seemed lost to the followers of Jesus.  The disciples were scattered for fear the Romans would be coming after them.  They were hidden from sight.  The Messiah, the one they had followed and loved for three years was dead. Their understanding of what had just happened was null.  Depression, fear, overwhelming despair, angry at themselves for not standing by Jesus were thoughts and feelings they now experienced.  What would they do now? Where would they go? Would they be executed as Jesus had …

God’s Plan for Redemption

God wrote His story before creation came into being even before He created the heavens and the earth. Because God is omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent He sees all, knows all, is everywhere at the same time and so powerful He can speak a word and it will be so. Because of who He is, God had a detailed plan to bring about the redemption of fallen man even before Adam and Eve were created and sinned in the Garden of Eden. It was God who planned to bring salvation through the blood of Jesus Christ, His Son.  He determined the …

Psalms and The Prophets

    Luke 24: 25-27 “Then He said to them, “O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken!  Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into His glory?”  And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself. Throughout the Old Testament and especially from Psalm to Malachi, God gave His people specific words to speak and write in prophecy of the coming Messiah. He would remind them of His covenant promise of salvation to come through the …

His Appointed Time

God’s divine plan had arrived to the appointed time on God’s calendar for the saving of the souls of man.  He had designed a plan before the beginning of the creation of the heavens and the earth to show man what redemption from sin looks like.  He had designed every detail.  From the creation of Adam and Eve, down through history God was showing man what was required to receive forgiveness of sin. The Bible records verse after verse of instructions for worshipping and pleasing God and points directly to the coming of His Messiah Jesus Christ for redemption of …

Christmas Prophecies

We don’t know the exact date of Jesus birth, but we do know where and how Jesus was born.  We also know that Jesus’ birth was planned long before the earth was created, when He was still in heaven with the Father.  Prophecies throughout the Old Testament were foretold long before His birth. Here are just a few: His pre-existence and place of His earthly birth:  Micah 5: 2 “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from …

What Do You Want to Pay?

I saw one of those cute little tea towels for sale online. It had Psalm 107: 1 monogrammed on it.  Then I noticed the price tag hanging from it.  $16.50. Wow, one tea towel almost $20.00.  For that price, I wouldn’t want to use it.  I’d just let it hang in my kitchen as a wall decoration. Psalm 107: 1 says “Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.”  What does that cost really?  Can we afford God’s goodness and love?  Do we deserve it?  Truth is His goodness and love are free gifts.  If …
