Happy Easter: He Has Risen
We are in the midst of a vicious storm; no tornado, hurricane, tsunami, earthquake or avalanche has seen the power of this one. Many of us are losing hope as every day passes, quarantined in our homes with tears falling down our faces. We look outside our windows wondering if this is how we are going to spend the rest of our days. But one hope remains within our hearts and that is God and His Son Jesus Christ who has risen.
Fear not this storm for God sees its destruction and has a plan for us. Not everything that works through God becomes apparent right away; it takes time, patience and faith to witness His plan manifest. God is all powerful and can defeat any storm risen by Satan, but God acts in mysterious ways which we cannot always comprehend as human beings. All we can do is to have faith; that’s what God expects from us!
Don’t cry anymore my brothers and sisters, for we all live together under God’s grace. As His children, we must remain united, thankful, strong and faithful. We cannot allow Satan’s storms to destroy our lives. The more that you live in fear and uncertainty, the more credit and satisfaction that you are giving to Satan; he wants us to suffer.
One important thing to keep in mind is that as Christians, we do not look down upon those who don’t believe in God or accept Jesus Christ as His Son. Because we know that with the Holy Spirit within us, God teaches us to love everyone in the world, whether they are on the right path or not. As Christians, we pray for those to find the right path to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
As Christians, we do not believe that we are better than others, for what is better in God’s eyes? We are all human beings and God is the ultimate judge at the end of times. Many of us may not be in the best of spirits at this time; we become easily tempted to hate others. But don’t allow this coronavirus pandemic to fill your hearts with hatred; remain tender-hearted and continue to spread love and faith in the world.
There will be a time where we will all be reunited in God’s house, surrounded by forever-lasting peace and love. The ones which we have lost in previous storms and the present storm will come back running to us with hugs and kisses; we will cry so joyfully that the beauty in our tears will wash away our pain. We will all walk holding hands in a beautiful, brightly-lit land called Heaven towards His thrown and meet God and His Son Jesus Christ.
So brothers and sisters, I ask you this on this Easter Sunday, “Do you have God in your heart and mind?” Because God is awaiting to help and guide you and provide you with love and the Holy Spirit; you just have to be willing by believing and opening up your heart to Him and His Son Jesus Christ. Don’t be afraid and take the first step to ask God for guidance in how to pray and reach out to Him.
For me personally, I was blessed to be introduced to God by my grandmother when I was nine years old. During that summer when I first heard about God and Jesus Christ, I had a spiritual experience which I am still able to tell to this day: I was standing in my living room (I may have been home alone) and suddenly, it’s as if time had frozen and I was just stuck in place. My mind then filled with a bright light that comforted me with peace and there was a message which I interpreted to be from God, something along the lines of, “You have found me.” There was no voice in my mind but just a thought or message; it’s very difficult to describe spiritual experiences in words but this is all I got! And ever since then, I have been a believer.
This is the power of God and His Son Jesus Christ.
