Easter is more than a holiday; more than a symbolic celebration in honor of spring; more than bunnies and colored eggs and chocolate.  Easter is a message; a strong, clear, loud message from an All-Powerful and Loving God to a hopeless, lost, and dying generation of man.  Easter is actually about the greatest miracle that has ever occurred in the history of man -- a documented, historical, miraculous fact -- JESUS WAS DEAD....AND NOW, HE LIVES!  Easter is actually all about the power of the love of God; Easter is all about the power of RESURRECTION; HIS RESURRECTION POWER...TOWARD YOU. 
 
Easter could more accurately be called Resurrection Day, because that is what we are really celebrating and remembering: the fact that our All-Knowing, All-Loving,
All-Powerful Father -- the Creator and God of the entire universe -- cared enough about us to devise a way to circumvent satan's plan to capture mankind in his deadly grip forever.  
 
When Jesus died on that cross, laden with the burden of every individual sin, every single iniquity and tendency toward  habitual sin traits; every weakness of man; every transgression and trespass we have made against one another's boundaries; every result and consequence of OUR error and continual 'missing-of-the-mark' : every sickness, every disease, known or not yet known to man; every trap and bondage that man cannot independantly free himself from...when Jesus hung there, bleeding and suffocating to death for you and me...satan thought he had Him for good. 
 
Satan knew that the weight of the sin-burden Jesus carried would pull Him down into the realm and grasp of satan's domain of hell, where the price of punishment for sin inevitably must always be paid.  Satan saw with his own eyes and experienced what he mistakenly assumed as victory: three days and three nights watching Jesus suffer the pain and agony of burning in hell for being on the wrong side of righteousness.  What satan didn't know...what he didn't factor in...what he never counted on...was the RESURRECTION POWER OF OUR LOVING FATHER-GOD TOWARD HIS CHILDREN.
 
Jesus certainly LOOKED DEAD to those watching from the foot of the cross.  They saw it with their own eyes!  They took His lifeless, dead body down from the cross...they laid Him in the grave with their own hands!  Jesus certainly LOOKED DEAD to satan...he had personally ushered him right into the gates of hell!  Satan saw with his own eyes; he grasped Him with his own hands to beat Him, abuse Him, and to throw Him into the dungeon of total darkness!  Satan watched with his own eyes and heard with his own ears the fire of torment that Jesus suffered behind the locked gates of hell.  But what they all THOUGHT THEY SAW; what they THOUGHT THEY KNEW FOR CERTAIN; what they even physically touched with their own hands and experienced first-hand, was SUPERCEDED AND OVERRIDDEN BY THE RESURRECTION POWER OF GOD.
 
That which had definitely APPEARED dead and buried, had now been RAISED ALIVE!  That which had DISAPPEARED FROM VIEW, GIVEN UP AS HOPELESS, AND NO LONGER USEFUL, WAS GIVEN A NEW LIFE AND POWER FAR GREATER THAN HAD EVER EXISTED BEFORE...THROUGH THE POWER OF RESURRECTION AVAILABLE FROM A LOVING FATHER-GOD TOWARD HIS CHILDREN!
 
Easter is all about that RESURRECTION POWER OF GOD STILL AVAILALE TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US TODAY!  The same power that raised Jesus up and out from the 'deadest' kind of death is even more available to us now, simply for the asking!
 
What do you need resurrected in your life today?  
 
...What hopes and dreams, situations, and circumstances have you given up for dead? 
 
...Do you feel like a person that is more dead than alive... 'walking dead' instead of full of life? 
 
...Do you feel that whatever you touch turns to dust...that poverty and lack will be your life-long destiny? 
 
...Where has satan made you think that you are no longer able to bear the hellish burdens he has loaded on you...that makes death seem easier and more attractive than life?
 
...What lifestyle choices, addictions, and patterns of behavior have made you think there is no way out?
 
...What sickness and disease has satan put on you or your loved ones that you've been told are 'incurable'... for which they say there is no hope...nothing more that 'man' can do? 
 
...What relationships have you watched disintegrate and disappear until you've written them off for good... after all the injustice, the hurt, and the pain was seemingly about to kill you?
 
...What LOOKS AND FEELS dead, buried, and hopeless in your life today?  
 
Here is your answer...Here is your salvation...Here is your hope...
 
JESUS IS RISEN...HE IS ALIVE!
This is the good news:  On the third day after Jesus suffered the penalty of OUR sin, the Father played His hidden trump card: HIS POWER OF RESURRECTION!  By speaking forth His power, saying, "IT IS ENOUGH," HE RESURRECTED JESUS OUT OF HELL ITSELF, delivering Jesus, and all of us with Him, OUT OF EVERY SINGLE PLAN OF SATAN...FOREVERMORE!  The Father is ready and waiting to help you by applying His Resurrection Power over every 'dead' situation in your life, if you will let Him!  Allow His RESURRECTION POWER to lift you 'up and out' today.... All we need to do is ask Him, and give Him the legal right to intervene on our behalf.  He is in the business of resurrecting all that looks dead, feels dead, smells dead, and is left for dead.  He is your LIFE-GIVER;
...HE IS THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE!
 
So...never go just by what you think you know, what seems certain according to what you see with your natural eyes, or hear with your natural ears!  Never give up what is precious to you as dead and buried.  Make sure you get the full truth of the picture from the Word of God.  Make sure you factor in.... 
 
 HIS DYNAMIC RESURRECTION POWER TOWARD YOU!
HAPPY RESURRECTION DAY!
