Empty at Easter
by Jerry Watts

A World without Easter
by James Merritt
1. We just concluded one of the most exciting and interesting series I think we have ever done, ever, called ''24.'' It was a fascinating study of the story of the last 24 hours in the life of Christ set in a 21st century setting to the format of the tv show ''24.'' Even though it made for a great story, great drama, great intrigue, and great mystery, nothing in that series would still tell you what is so distinct and what is so different about...

The Hope of Easter
by Ernest Easley
If there was ever a day that gives us hope .. it is resurrection Sunday! In fact ...that's why the church gathers week by week on Sunday .. the Lord's Day for worship, rather than on Saturday, the Sabbath: to celebrate and commemorate the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ! In fact .. every Sunday is a celebration of the empty tomb! A celebration that of the empty tomb! A celebration that Jesus is alive! It's the empty tomb of Jesus that gives us HOPE! Hope in the here-in-now and hope in the here-after! And don't get the idea that the…
What's So Special about Easter?

It's Not Over: An Easter Message of Hope
by Jeff Lynn
It’s no secret that today we are celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. Our intent today is not to try to prove it to you, because by virtue of you being here today, you have some sense of the importance of this day. This is a high and holy day for Christ-followers because the apostle Paul said that if Jesus wasn’t raised from the dead and brought to life, then we are still in our sin and the biggest fools of all in falling...

Prophetic Masterpiece of Easter
by Duane Bemis
I heard a voice calling me from on high and the Spirit said, ''Only a magnificent Creator, Elohim, could first paint the shadow of an object to define and point all to the real object. I want you to paint another Masterpiece through your words and your artwork about God's beloved Son, Jesus the Christ the...

God in a Grave (2 of 3)

by Jim Perdue
Last year I missed Easter. It was awful! I had gone through all the preparations for Easter that a pastor should undergo. I was ready, I was excited, I was pumped about Easter Sunday. The, the day before Easter, I came down with a horrible stomach bug. I called Patrick that evening and said, ''I'm sick, I don't think I'll be able to...

The Four Crowds at Easter
by Chris Brown
THERE IS A CROWD THAT SAYS: 1. What's in it for me? Mark 11:1-11, 15:6-15 ''I know enough about Jesus to want Him on my side.'' RESULT: 2. I'm smarter than God. Mark 11:31-32, 12:12, 14:1-2, 61-65 ''I know enough about God to make my own Jesus.'...'

It is utterly impossible.A Letter I received a letter from a man who wrote, ‘‘There is no such thing as Eternal Security.’’ Well, the Bible doesn’t teach that. With all due respect ...
The Easter Equation
by Nelson Price
Jesus Christ is the only person to have His epitaph announced by angels. Weeping women and mournful men came to the tomb in which His lifeless body had been placed. They came to bury their hope. They were there to say farewell to a dream, embalm the past, and to weep and mourn. These defeated and dis-spirited followers...
