"I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live." John 11:25
  
Just as Halloween and Santa Claus play a large part in our society, so too does Easter. Easter egg hunts, frilly bonnets, bunnies and colored eggs, this is Easter to millions...but what is the true meaning of 'Easter'?


The origin of Easter is shrouded in mystery. Where did the name originate, when did Passover become Easter, why was it changed and by Whom? Many questions with few reliable answers; but then does it really matter?


Yes....it really matters.


Instead of teaching children the true meaning of Halloween; just like the world - Christians take their children out on Halloween night. Instead of teaching children the true meaning of Christmas, we tell them about Santa Claus and his reindeer, and sadly instead of teaching children about the life, death and Resurrection of our Saviour and LORD children enjoy Easter egg hunts and chocolate bunnies. 


Truth is what God' Word says it is, nothing more and surely nothing less. Easter is a pagan celebration and just like Halloween and Santa Claus has no place in the church. But the resurrection of our Saviour, LORD and King, shout it from the housetops; shout it loud and shout it long....'He' alive, He's alive and I'm forgiven.'


"Upon a cross they hung my LORD, 
A cross where I deserved to be. 
While hanging there that long, dark day, 
He paid the debt reserved for me. 
How great His love, so full so free. 
His death became my victory."

Have a blessed and glorious Resurrection Day, then make each day a day of remembrance, remembering all that God has done for you. LORD bless.
