Message 110:9

Yea, they shall learn of the Christ, the Savior and Messiah of all mankind, yea all the earth. Those that hear shall be delivered, redeemed and be saved in their inheritance, all that shall be with them serving the Lord. For they need not fear nor be confounded.

Only through Christ can we find peace and salvation. All will be able to hear this message and decide if they want to follow God or not. For those that do, they will set free from their sin and darkness. Will you be set free?

Matthew 27:46-54

And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias. And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink. The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him. Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.

As we prepare to celebrate Easter this Sunday, let us remember that Christ died for us. He took upon our sins so that we might have everlasting life. This was very hard for him. By taking our sins, he had to leave the presence of God. Today when we sin, we also leave the presence of God. This is why salvation and repentance is so important. Without it, we would be in darkness with no hope of ever seeing light.

Tonight I went to the play Spamalot. I know that Monty Python is not scripture or even religious, but there was a great song and over them that I think is important for us to remember. “You should always look at the bright side of life.” Sometimes things are dark and dreary, but if we are able to stay positive and always look for the blessing in our life, we will be much happier. Looking at the bright side also helps us through the dark parts. No matter how dark it become, God always gives us enough light to see where we are going.
