A vision of the Glorious Cross. I saw a timeline, starting from the beginning of time until the end of time. An empty Cross, burning with white Light brighter than anything you have ever seen was dividing this timeline into two parts, before the Cross and after the Cross. EVERYTHING was changed after Jesus died on the Cross and rose again. Even in the natural realm earth’s history is divided into BC (before Christ) and AD (The year of our Lord). Though Satan attempts to change the times and the seasons, he can NEVER change what Jesus has accomplished at the Cross.
When you are born again, your old man DIES at this Glorious Cross. All of our sins were BLOTTED OUT and DESTROYED, to be remembered NEVER AGAIN by our loving Abba Father. You have been resurrected WITH JESUS into NEW LIFE. You have died with Christ and were raised with Him. We are saved to the uttermost by our Glorious God’s plan of salvation which He carried out HIMSELF. Our God is not limited by time. He is our Eternal Father. He lives outside of the time dimension. Though our natural mind has a hard time understanding eternity, we accept it by faith.
Some churches have made Good Friday/Easter season into a time of mourning. We do grieve over what our Jesus went through for us. But the Lord wants us to SEE and FOCUS our eyes upon Him and on His GLORIOUS RESURRECTION! He wants us to have JOY over what He did for us. He always told people “DO NOT WEEP.” This is where our hope lies. We are NEW CREATIONS, our old man has passed away at the Glorious Cross! He wants His Children to CELEBRATE their freedom in Him and JOY in HIS JOY. We have a LIVING SAVIOR! Rejoice and again I say rejoice! grin emoticon It is finished. HE IS RISEN! “Do not be afraid, I am He who was dead and BEHOLD, I am ALIVE forevermore!”
“The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying. Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going ahead of you into Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have told you,”Matthew 28:5-7.
“God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of it,” Acts 2:32.
“Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a NEW life. For if we have been UNITED WITH HIM in a death like His, we will certainly also be united with Him in a resurrection like His,”Romans 6:3-5.
“God, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus”Ephesians 2:5-7.
“Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God,” Colossians 3:1.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a NEW creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come”2 Corinthians 5:17.
“Do not be afraid; I am the Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last, and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I AM ALIVE forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades,” Revelation 1:17-18.
