He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. (Matthew 28:6)

He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. (Matthew 28:6)

He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. (Matthew 28:6)

Do YOU believe it?  Do YOU believe what God says? The Bible foretold of our Saviour Jesus way back in Genesis 3:15.

Do YOU believe it… Just as He said?  There is a sad, growing trend, to dismiss Genesis as fact, even in many our our Bible preaching churches.  We have decided to believe fallible man’s opinion rather than infallible God’s Word.  If you don’t believe what He said about our Saviour in Genesis, why would you believe it in Matthew?

So, do YOU believe it?  Just as He said?  He is not here; He has risen!

Happy Resurrection Day.  It happened JUST AS HE SAID, starting from Genesis.

We spent Easter at home this year. Easter is always a good time of the year, as we remember what Jesus did for us.  If you don’t know what Jesus did for us, here it is in a nut shell.

  • God created man in a prefect world
  • The first man and women rebelled against God and brought sin into the world.  All have sinned and rebelled ever since.
  • The penalty for sin is death – physical and spiritual – eternal separation from God
  • God loves us so much, that He doesn’t want to be separated from us, though no sin can be in his presence
  • God took it upon Himself to come to save us from what we are powerless to do.
  • He was born a man – a sinless man.  He was killed for our sin, and suffered the consequence of our sin
  • It didn’t end there,  He also overcame death and rose to new life, so those that believe in Him will also be raised to life after we die.

We will all be resurrected when He comes again.  Those who put there trust in Him will be raised to eternal life, those who continue to rebel against Him will be raised to eternal damnation.

He doesn’t desire that ANY should perish.  He loves us so much, He wants us all to choose Him and Life.

We just got back yesterday from a busy Easter week-end in Glasgow, Montana.  We put more than 800 miles on our Suburban.

Heather now lives in Glasgow,  so we decided to visit her for Easter.  Co-incidentally, some friends of ours son was getting married on the same week-end.  The week-end was very busy but fun.

On Friday, after the long trip to Glasgow, we met Heather and Carol’s mother Myrtle.  Myrtle came by train and we showed up just as the train was arriving.  That evening, we were invited to the rehearsal dinner.  We had a very filling taco dinner.  On Saturday evening, we went to the beautiful wedding.  After the wedding, we were served a full roast beef dinner buffet.  Oh, the food!  After a quite short night sleep, we got up bright and early for Easter Church Service.  Since we were so far from home, we decided to have Easter Baggies instead of Easter Baskets.  That worked out great.

After Church, we took a trip to Fort Peck Reservoir.  The dam on Fort Peck is 3.8 miles long and is earthen.  It is very large.

We got back from our little site seeing trip just in time for an Easter dinner pot-luck.  More food!  After Dinner, we went to some friends house and the kids played lots of games having to do with raw eggs!  Take a look at the pictures to see some gooey messes.

On Monday morning, we were invited to our friends’ house for breakfast.  We had piles of biscuits and gravy.  Oh, my!  We then packed up our Suburban for the long trip home.

When we got back into Helena, we met Carol’s sister and her husband Dave along with their daughter and her husband and their little boy at Pizza Hut.  We ate a lot of pizza, then headed home.  It was a great week-end, but there is no place like home, and no beds like our own.

We hope you had a great Resurrection Day!

John
