THE EASTER STORY

“You don’t create stories like this. It had to be based on reality,” Dr Michael Brown told Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of Greenelines on the Charisma Podcast Network.

The evidence for the resurrection of Jesus is overwhelming and there have been many great books testifying to its truth. An excellent book is the one shown here. For me, these facts make Jesus resurrection incontrovertible:

1. Twelve nobodies (fishermen in the main) were able to establish in their lifetime a church that could withstand immense persecution.

2. The disciples were willing to lay down their lives for Jesus and The Gospel.

“People ask, ‘Why should I believe it?’ Well, this book is going to tell you why you should believe it. I’ve said it for many years: You don’t die for a lie. If the disciples made up the idea that He rose and concocted it, then why did they die for it later on?

Listen to this testimony of Dr Michael Brown:

“Jesus demonstrates that He’s alive today by working in our lives. The one that set me free instantly from two years of heavy drug use is the risen Jesus, the one who’s working around the world as we speak. If Jesus didn’t rise, then nobody would know His name today. He would have just been some obscure, ancient, alleged miracle-worker who died. But the fact is, hundreds of millions of people have come to worship God through Him. Islam doesn’t talk about Muhammad rising because he didn’t. Buddhism doesn’t talk about Buddha rising because he didn’t.

Only one rose—Jesus, Yeshua, Messiah of Israel, Savior of the world.”

Ask our Heavenly Father for opportunities to share the good news of Jesus this Easter. He will answer that prayer.

For He (Our Heavenly Father) made Him (Jesus) who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.2 Corinthians 5:21

ARE YOU A FOOL LIKE ME?

Great Easter message. Pass it on

Unshakable Hope

I’m sure it’s the little boy still hiding in my 57-year-old paralyzed body, but I enjoy trying to pull off a good April Fools Day joke on Mary. In our thirty-two years of marriage, I probably have a 75% success rate.

It can be a real challenge to carry out a successful April fools joke with ALS because I can’t speak so I have to attempt to fool her via email or using my computer’s (no inflection) robot voice (the only “voice” I’ve had for the last twenty years).

As I’m sure you know, April Fools Day and Easter (the day we celebrate Christ’s resurrection from the dead) fall on the same day this year. The two have not fallen on the same day since 1956.

Are Christians foolsfor believing that Christ was literally raised from the dead?

Atheists, agnostics and those of other faiths, believe it…
