Easter – It is Finished!

 

When Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished.”
And He bowed His head and gave up His spirit.
John 19:30
 Very early on Sunday morning, just at sunrise,
Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome went to the tomb. 
On the way they were asking each other,
“Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?”

But as they arrived, they looked up and saw that the stone,
which was very large, had already been rolled aside.
When they entered the tomb, they saw a young man
clothed in a white robe sitting on the right side.
The women were shocked,
but the angel said, “Don’t be alarmed.
You are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified.
He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead!
Look, this is where they laid his body.
Mark 16:1-6
Our dying bodies must be transformed into bodies that will never die;
our mortal bodies must be transformed into immortal bodies.
Then, when our dying bodies have been transformed into bodies that will never die, this Scripture will be fulfilled:
“Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is your victory?
O death, where is your sting?”
Thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.
! Corinthians 15:54-57
Then I looked again, and I heard the voices of thousands
and millions of angels around the throne.

And they sang in a mighty chorus:
“Worthy is the Lamb who was slaughtered—
    to receive power and riches
and wisdom and strength
    and honor and glory and blessing.”
And then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea. They sang:
“Blessing and honor and glory and power
    belong to the one sitting on the throne
    and to the Lamb forever and ever.”
Revelation 5:11-13

 

 

 

The Lamb of God – Part 5

 

 

 

They will know that I am the Lord their God,who brought them out of Egypt
so that I might live among them.”
Exodus 29:46

“The people must build a dwelling for me so that I can live among them.”
Exodus 25:8

God said to Moses, “The People of Israel are to set up camp circling the Tent of Meeting and facing it.
Numbers 2:1-2

 Moses finished the work. Then, the Cloud covered the Tent of Meeting, and the Glory of God filled The Dwelling.

 

Israel had been delivered from bondage so that God COULD LIVE with them. Hence, His top priority was the construction of His residence, called the Tent of Meeting.

 

When completed, Father’s house was placed in the center of the Israeli encampment. Then, God entered His residence and all the people saw His Presence!

Conclusion: the passion of the Father’s heart is to live in a relationship of love with His kids!  “The end of creation is that all things may return to the Creator and be united with Him.” (Emanuel Swedenborg) PROOF? Of the culmination of God’s plan for humankind we read: I heard a loud voice shout from the throne: God’s home is now with his people. He will live with them, and they will be his own.” (Revelation 21:3)

The Father wants you to be His home. He desires to meet with you therein. I will talk to the Father, and he’ll provide you another Friend so that you will always have someone with you. This Friend is the Spirit of Truth.  You know him already because he has been staying WITH you, and will even be IN you!” (John 14:15-17)

You invite people to your house. Your guests, standing before the door, ring the doorbell, anticipating entrance to your residence. However, you don’t open the door.  Look, I’m standing at the door and knocking. If anyone listens to my voice and opens the door, I’ll come in and we’ll eat together.”  (Revelation 3:20)

Have you opened the door to the Lamb of God, the One who, on this day “restored our relationship with God while we were still his enemies.” (Romans 5:10)

Are you hurting and broken within?
Overwhelmed by the weight of your sin?
Jesus is calling
Have you come to the end of yourself
Do you thirst for a drink from the well?
Jesus is calling
O come to the altar
The Father’s arms are open wide
Forgiveness was bought with
The precious blood of Jesus Christ
Leave behind your regrets and mistakes
Come today there’s no reason to wait
Jesus is calling
Bring your sorrows and trade them for joy
From the ashes a new life is born
Jesus is calling
O come to the altar
The Father’s arms are open wide
Forgiveness was bought with
The precious blood of Jesus Christ
O come to the altar
The Father’s arms are open wide
Forgiveness was bought with
The precious blood of Jesus Christ
Oh what a savior
Isn’t He wonderful?
Sing hallelujah,
