This is usually the place where I give you this weeks end times prophecy, but today, in honor of Easter, I want to give you the most important Bible prophecy ever given, and ever fulfilled.
Jesus said in Matthew 17: 22-23,
22 And while they were gathering together in Galilee, Jesus said to them, “The Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men;
23 and they will kill Him, and He will be raised on the third day.”
Jesus told His disciples and His followers that He was going to die, and then be raised from the dead three days later. They didn’t believe it. Then He did it. The great theologian, Yogi Berra said, “It isn’t bragging if you can do it.” Jesus did it, and because of what He did, we will never be the same.
According to Newsweek magazine, the resurrection is the most radical of all Christian doctrines. I believe that’s true, and because it’s true, we should know and understand just what happened on that first Easter Sunday morning. That is why I will be giving you a resurrection timeline from all four Gospels this Easter Sunday.
Easter at Lakeside
Obviously, Easter is a big day at Lakeside. To prepare for Easter, I’m asking for your help to clean up the church grounds. We need to weed the planters and clean up the parking lot. If you can help on Saturday, just show up around 9 am and bring a rake, broom, shovel, weed-whacker or wheel barrel and we will get it knocked out fast.
Easter Sunrise Service
Don’t forget the Sunrise Service at the Resort at 6:15am.
Happy Easter to all, from all of us here at Lakeside Church.
