Easter is a Receipt – payment for something accepted
Easter is a Savings Bond – Look forward to; full of possibilities
Beyond the Third Day
Look forward to Personal Resurrection
1 Corinthians 15:6 Jesus appeared to 500 brothers, James, the Apostles and to Paul 3 to 4 years after the resurrection
Three things happen. v. 12
We are prepared for life in the Kingdom. We rush out to meet the King. He enters in victory.
Look forward to next triumphal entry
Revelation 19:11 King of Kings; Lord of Lords; just be ready
What happens next?
He defeats the enemy. He takes His place on the throne. Life in His Kingdom begins. – Completion of prophecies. (On the throne every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord)
Look forward to Life without flaw.
Revelation 21 and 22 read often
What if June 12 you would know that Jesus is coming back? What would you do? Would it change how you live? It could be imminent. Imminent -
impending, at hand, close, near, approaching, fast approaching, coming, forthcoming, on the way, about to happen, upon us, in store, in the offing, in the pipeline, on the horizon, in the air, in the wind, brewing, looming, looming large
What to do now:
Share faith with one person
Attend church regularly
Meet with 1 person to read the Bible
Forgive that person
Accept Christ – Dedicate Life to Him
Stop Sin – that God has convicted you.
