99:9 here with another newsletter. First I want to say Happy Easter!! I pray you are enjoying a nice day with family, celebrating the Good News of our Faith—Jesus’ resurrection from the dead. Now the life He has is available to all who put their Faith in Him. This is something to celebrate, indeed.
Here’s the new content I uploaded this week:
Millions of Christians around the world live in persecution. They may get arrested, beaten, kidnapped, or even killed just for practicing our Faith. In Part 90, we look at the 5 worst countries for anti-Christian persecution in 2021, according to the latest World Watch List report.
Spiritual maturity in Christ is our goal as we progress on this Christian walk. And it isn’t easy—we’re bound to fail, many times. No matter how strong our Faith or our efforts are, we’re going to fail, it is what it is. But the important thing is that we keep following God, keep going, and don’t give up. We don’t want to go backwards to our old ways. As long as we’re still going forwards with God, we’re going and growing the right way.
Good Friday. It’s the day that commemorates the death of our LORD on the Cross. So that should be a sad occasion, right?? Well, it certainly is a sad and bitter event. But isn’t it also a joyous one too?? What Christ did on the Cross sealed His ultimate victory. He conquered sin and death, and opened the way for all who believe in Him to do the same. Now everyone who believes will have their sins Forgiven, and enjoy eternal life. What’s not to celebrate?? Good Friday is a good day, let’s not be too somber.
In these painful End Times, it’s easy to lose Hope. But today, Easter, we’re reminded that in Christ, we have the ultimate Hope. Jesus conquered death itself, opening the way for eternal life with Him in Heaven for all who believe. Amazing!! Anything that happens to us down here on earth can’t compare to the Glory we’ll enjoy in Heaven. Don’t worry about the pain of the End of this world. Stay focused on the Hope we have in Jesus, our Savior and Love.
Well that’s all for the week. I hope this gives you something good to read on your Easter Sunday. Enjoy the week, and enjoy your Easter holiday. God Bless you all, and I’ll be back next week with the next newsletter!
