With Easter just around the corner, what does the blood that Jesus shed for you and I on the cross mean to you?

---The_Believer on 4/1/12

It means that I have peace with God. That my sins can be forgiven. Ans that God loves me enough to die in my place that I can live with him

2 Thess 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. In this passage Paul warns about Chaldean Mysteries creeping into the true church of which easter was chief of the Chaldean festivals. The easter festival is meaningless. The Lord Jesus left an example to honor him once per year at Pascha because Christ is our Passover sacrificed for us 1 Corin 5:7 Luke 22:14-20. Those who follow the Lord follow his example by observing Passover with Christ as the true Paschal Lamb and the first fruits from the dead his shed blood points to eternal life.

Candice, I see that you have not left the Jehovah Witnesses teachings. The annual event that they observe only for the 144,000.
I know you are a good person, and you don't normally argue with anyone about any doctrine, but didn't you say you had left the Witnesses and were now a born again Christian?

"How does every single blog get hijacked by the arguing over petty thing?" CraigA

This is how you view who God is and what His Truth means to sinners? That salvation is only by His grace and mercy? And if He does not dispense His grace and mercy on the fallen man, all will be heading to the Lake of Fire?

The Truth about eternal life and death is petty to you? Speaking the Truth against lies is petty? Well be reminded, Jesus spoke these words, "For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also." Matthew 6:21
---christan on 4/5/12


\\We must remember that it's the last supper he asked us to observe annually.\\

Jesus NEVER said to "do this" merely annually.

Try again.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Candice, A-men. What manner of love does the Father show to us: in that He whom spared not his only Son, how will he not also give us all thhings? Thank you Jesus. Thank you thank you thank you Jesus. We thank you Jesus. We honor and we worship and we adore you Jesus, You are worthy to praised in all the earth. We exalt you Lord. You are high and lifted up. We thank you Jesus. A-men.
---Eloy on 4/5/12


Well tonight I will be observing the memorial & no I am not a Jw,however I celebrate the Passover knowing Jesus was the slain lamb. What he did is very humbling.He cares so much for us he gave his life. We must remember that it's the last supper he asked us to observe annually.His ressurection is important & we should remember it daily not just yearly.
---Candice on 4/5/12




I am not bickering but shownig what God showed me.I'm not a judaizer nor do I celebrate the OTPassover,but I know Jesus was the slain lamb, the new passover.

\\The Holy One as a common sinner, to abuse him and mock him and kill him, a thousands hells and a thousand torments is not sufficient recompense for their evil which they have done to the Holy One.
---Eloy on 4/5/12\\

That's why youm need to repent, Eloy--lest these things happen to youm!

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 4/5/12


craig, it happens because we are all sinners...some just born again sinners. If there is one meaning of something, everyone things their interpretation is the right one. I have debated on these blogs before but I now feel God is not pleased with me arguing over doctrines because we need to be in one accord and these blogs are not in one accord.
---shira4368 on 4/5/12


I will tell you what Jesus blood DOES for me.

There is now "no condemnation" to those who are In Christ Jesus.

There are no "curses" brought about on the Body of Christ. Blessings and CURSES are what Israel lived under being under LAW.
---kathr4453 on 4/5/12


Jesus' blood which he shed on the cross is earth-shattering. It should shake people to their core, to see and know that he is God's own Son in the flesh, perfect and good and holy, and to see how mankind has treated him is indeed speechless. To mistreat The Holy One as a common sinner, to abuse him and mock him and kill him, a thousands hells and a thousand torments is not sufficient recompense for their evil which they have done to the Holy One.

How does every single blog get hijacked by the arguing over petty thing?
---CraigA on 4/5/12


Niama - if you give tithes out of your unemployment money and it is wrong to do so - is our God not full of mercy that he will see your heart and desire to obey him (despite the circumstance) and bless you? If you do not give the tithes (and it is my understanding that benefit money is still classed as income) and you walk in disobedience then you will be "cursed with a curse". In the UK in order to receive unemployment benefit you have to provide a job search so "your labour" is exchanged for the benefit (that is why I believe it is income). If you had a million pounds (or dollars) would you not freely give tithe? So why is it different if you have less? God and his word never change. Think about it!!! God bless you

Cluny, let's leave Jesus out of it ok.

I never said Jesus didn't say those words. SO if you want to butt in, make sure you understand the post first before butting in. That's why there are so many fights here. People THINK they can read anothers mind, have the gift of translating one's thoughts and totally mis-applies and changes the subject.

Many of your comments here Cluny are nothing but snide remarks to others where you take their words out of context.

You STILL don't get it! and obviously never will.

So, please leave Jesus out of it when you do this.

---kathr4453 on 4/4/12


Cluny, your context of the rich young ruler is so out of whacked to what I mentioned about the ten commandments. Was the rich young ruler rebuked by Christ doing easter eggs and bunny hopping? NO! He was hoping to enter heaven without Christ, by obeying the law!

When I made mention of the ten commandment, it's one particular law that points to your celebration of easter eggs and bunnies. Let me help since you're lost, "Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain."

You want to celebrate eggs and bunnies, go right ahead but the minute you make mention of Christ, it becomes and issue with the Word of God.

The Believer, not all postings on this site are from born-again Christians, that is why there is disunity and bickering, because the fauth-finders are not yet saved. Members of the same family, when truly caring about each other, will not fault-find with each another, but instead will accept each other with the love from God. Some of these fault-finder postings are even from church-goers, but we can discern from their nonspiritual words that they are yet to be regenerated from Christ, otherwise their words would be of the Spirit rather than of the world. Many people have head-knowledge: but how many people actually have heart-knowledge? For out of the mouth the heart speaks, and a person's words reveal what is abiding inside of their heart.

Quote from Calvin"

" They are pigs which come to defile the temple of God, and they should be in stables. It would be better for them to stay in their stinking hovels. To be blunt, it would be better that these wicked and filthy scoundrels were cut off from the Church of God, rather than coming to mingle with the company of the faithful."


Cluny, I wasn't talking to YOU, so please butt out of my conversations.

christan, did calvin justify himself or condemn himself by his words here???

And when you call people pigs and swine, are you too justifying or condemning yourself by your words?
---kathr4453 on 4/4/12


Its amazing! If God was to speak to some of us about our answers, I wonder what he would say! Why as Christians who serve the same God is there no unity and why are we bickering about such things especially at this time? How many Christians could honestly say that they would be happy for their son to die for people like us?? God shed his precious blood of his only son for you and I - so why do we try and nulify what he has done by pointless arguing? We are Ambassadors for Christ and are accountable for our words and actions. Many unbelievers and people of different faiths may read this. We need to think about what we say before we write it in these blogs. This is truly a time of repentance for us all!!!
---The_Believer on 4/4/12


lee1538:

If something is a prerequisite, it makes it possible to lose it by not having the prerequisite, but meeting that prerequisite is no guarantee.

For example, if you are drowning and someone throws you a rope, your grabbing it may be a prerequisite (because you'll drown if you don't grab it, but the rope is what actually saves you.
---StrongAxe on 4/3/12


\\God has spoken clearly and told us what's His and what's not, simply refer to the ten commandments and your answers are there. Still absurd?
---christan on 4/3/12\\

Yes, you are absurd, but we knew that anyway.

The Rich Young Ruler, to say nothing about the Pharisees and Scribes, boasted of their fidelity to the Decalogue, but they still missed Jesus.

OTOH, if you have Jesus, will eggs make you stumble? Is your faith so weak, christan?

**Oh so now it's OUR WORDS that we find Justification?**

That's what Jesus said, kathr. Go argue with Him.

Our own actions and words will judge us. "For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned." Matthew 12:37
---christan on 4/3/12

Oh so now it's OUR WORDS that we find Justification? Anything but Jesus ..Right christan???


And what on earth does this mean?
"For they too preach repentance every day and were persecuted by "God's people". Even now, this wickedness continues and will continue till the end of time."

God's people are persecuting others who preach repentance?

Wouldn't that be you calvinists doing this persecuting?

//I tell you, Nay: but, EXCEPT YE REPENT, YE SHALL ALL LIKEWISE PERISH." Luke 13:3,\\

I would like to ask a simple question here without committing what I believe.

If repentence is something that is a prerequsite to our salvation, then does that not put salvation in our hands?

Appreciate your answer.
---lee1538 on 4/3/12


StrongAxe, is this an "assumption" when I tell you that you cannot go to Christ unless the Father of Christ draws you? Obviously not. That's because it came from the mouth of Christ in John 6:44.

This is assumption: "This implies a faulty syllogism: 1) Scripture doesn't mention Easter eggs 2) Anything not mentioned in scripture is wrong 3) Therefore, Easter eggs are wrong." Why? Assuming it's not mentioned in Scriptures, it's not wrong - all the more wrong if point it to Christ's resurrection. This is "absurd"!

God has spoken clearly and told us what's His and what's not, simply refer to the ten commandments and your answers are there. Still absurd?
---christan on 4/3/12


\\I tell you, Nay: but, EXCEPT YE REPENT, YE SHALL ALL LIKEWISE PERISH." Luke 13:3,\\

To properly understand Christ's words, it helps to know to whom this or that saying was addressed.

Luke 13 was NOT addressed to notorious sinners, unbelievers, Roman pagans, or such like.

No, Jesus was addressing good, believing, Kosher-keeping, synagogue-sitting, Torah-tapping JEWS--the putative people of God of His day.

Hear Our Savior's message to YOU, christan: 'Unless YOU repent, YOU will likewise perish."

Glory to Jesus Christ!

christan:

You said: Let's see what Scriptures say? NOTHING! Don't see no nothing about eggs and the resurrection.

This implies a faulty syllogism:
1) Scripture doesn't mention Easter eggs
2) Anything not mentioned in scripture is wrong
3) Therefore, Easter eggs are wrong.

Cluny frequently uses reductio ad absurdum to show that assumption (2) is, in itself, absurd, because if one believes it, one must also reject altar calls, pews, computers, Christian blogs, Christian radio and TV, etc. because scripture doesn't mention them either.

Since assumption (2) is wrong, it can't be used to reach conclusion (3).
---StrongAxe on 4/3/12


\\at Easter is pagan and nothing to do with Christianity, except it claims to "celebrate" the resurrection of Christ.\\

The word "easter" might be pagan, but so is the word "Bible". It comes from the name of a shrine to the Egyptian deities, called "Biblios."

In any case, I don't celebrate Easter. I celebrate Pascha.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 4/3/12


Christ's message of the Gospel is direct (no altar calls, revivals, taking up collection), simply "Jesus began to preach, and to say, REPENT: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. I tell you, Nay: but, EXCEPT YE REPENT, YE SHALL ALL LIKEWISE PERISH." Matthew 4:17, Luke 13:3,5.

Was Christ message any different from the prophets of old? NO! For they too preach repentance every day and were persecuted by "God's people". Even now, this wickedness continues and will continue till the end of time.

Our own actions and words will judge us. "For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned." Matthew 12:37
---christan on 4/3/12


"Tell me how much Scriptures say about computers, hymnals, altar calls, revivals, taking up the collection, and other things dear to the heart of the Bible-only Christian." cluny

Let's break your list down. What does computers to do with the discussion of Easter? As for your other "practices", there's definitely no mention in the Scripture we must follow. These are man-made traditions using the name of the Lord in vain.

You are trying to confuse the issue with you computer analogy that Easter is pagan and nothing to do with Christianity, except it claims to "celebrate" the resurrection of Christ. Good move but you've failed miserably in your analogy and excuses.

My heart,soul,mind there is a purpose God has, no fear of affliction.My love is stronger than ever for the Lord! grateful realize how blessed ,not one time have I been denied when I plead the blood of Jesus 'n distress,danger or pain.
---ELENA on 4/3/12


When I look up upon the cross, up to where my innocent and precious and holy Jesus was nailed: how he was violated, and by wicked hands he was punched, mocked, stripped and whipped, and spit upon by sinners, it leaves me speechless. When I look up and see his blood spilling down and I feel his bones being out of joint, and feel his excruciating pain, and I hear his cry, "Eloi, Eloi, lima sa bachthani", it leaves me speechless. When I look upon the faces of those whom stand about and laugh at what they have done, they whom executed their unspeakable sin, my heart breaks. O' how my heart breaks. For I then see and understand full well the dark and cruel and heinous ways of the world towards God and his goodness.

Passover and Easter are two words for the exact same thing. Easter is an old word for Spring, and comes from the Lithuanian word "Aistra", meaning "Passion". But Easter is more correctly called Passover or the "Feast of Unleavened Bread", instituted on April 14, 1521 B.C. when Moses was 80 years old. The New Covenant Passover, called Communion, was instituted on Thursday April 14, 28 A.D. at 6:00 p.m. when Jesus was 32 years old. Early Sunday morning, three days after Jesus' last Passover supper, is Jesus' Resurrection Day, commonly called Easter. Christians celebrate Christ's sacrifical death and resurrection, and the worldly celebrate easter bunnies and easter eggs and candy.

Wow, incredible.

What I expect to see in this blog is people commenting on what the sacrifice of Jesus means to to them. Yet, here we have more bickering and fighting.

What the sacrifice of Jesus means to me is He did for me what I could not do for myself. He purchased me, bought me out of the slavery of sin.

I would never have been good enough for God. The blood of Jesus erased my past deeds and now when The Father looks at me, all He sees is His Son Jesus. Wow, what a fantastic gift Jesus has given to us. To be known by name to the God of all creation!

In respect and gratitude, I owe Jesus my life, my all, my everything.

"There are ancient stories of eggs being used to teach the message of the Resurrection of Christ by ancient saints and missionaries."

Let's see what Scriptures say? NOTHING! Don't see no nothing about eggs and the resurrection. But Scriptures did warned,

"For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel, for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness, whose end shall be according to their works."
2 Corinthians 11:13-15

Guess those "missionaries and saints" falls into this category, doesn't it?
---christan on 4/2/12


\\Obviously nothing, if you think "celebrating Easter" has anything to do with Jesus Christ of the Holy Bible. \\

Actually, the preferred name for the Resurrection of Christ is PASCHA (from the Hebrew Pesach) or phonetic variant.

\\2. Were the apostles and saints running around looking for easter eggs when Christ ressurected from the dead as recorded?\\

A note about eggs and Pascha

1. The egg is featured food on the Seder plate.

2. A boiled egg is the last thing traditionally eaten before the fast of Great Lent begins, and the first thing consumed after the Paschal liturgy to break the fast.

3. There are ancient stories of eggs being used to teach the message of the Resurrection of Christ by ancient saints and missionaries.

"With Easter just around the corner, what does the blood that Jesus shed for you and I on the cross mean to you?"

Obviously nothing, if you think "celebrating Easter" has anything to do with Jesus Christ of the Holy Bible.

1. What has bunnies and eggs to do with our Lord in His precious death at Calvary?
2. Were the apostles and saints running around looking for easter eggs when Christ ressurected from the dead as recorded?
3. Did the Lord sanctioned the Christians to put aside a day to "celebrate His ressurrection"?

It's as clear as daylight that the such practices have nothing to do with true Christianity but lots to do with paganism.

I celebrate Passover & when I take the annual communion I remember what he has done.I remember in my daily walk the sacrifice he made & he has risen again. however if you read in scripture & donot add to it Jesus did NOT say to celebrate him being risen each year. He said at the Passover to remember him (communion wise).His death & ressurection ARE important YES,but also what he taught about his fathers kingdom. NOT mixing a pagan holiday name 3days later with our Lord. So Passover is the correct celebration.
