Oh Priceless Treasures

Oh, Priceless Treasures!

How beautiful it is when our dear God gives us special manifestations of His love. It seems as if it is when we least deserve it. Oh, the matchless grace and love of God! To be bathed in them is the very atmosphere of Heaven.

Such was the week of the death and resurrection of Jesus to some beloved of His children.

We were first taken to the seven last sayings that came from Jesus while on the cross. How can one describe the love that flowed from Him while under the utmost agony of body, soul and spirit? The sweetness of the tender Holy Spirit filled the sanctuary as tears flowed from some eyes and hearts were bent under such grace and mercy.

Three days later the celebration of the resurrection began with the triumphal procession! With orchestra and heavenly voices proclaiming our King’s complete victory over death, what rejoicing there was. Banners of triumph were carried towards the front of the church but the most beautiful one came in last. What a glorious banner. It was placed in front for all to gaze upon. JESUS it proclaimed in the center; Son of Man, Son of God flanked either side of that precious Name. Easter Lilies reflected the trumpet of God as their pure white flowers glanced Heavenward.

The pastor then unveiled Heavenly truths such as I have not heard. When JESUS cried from the cross “It is finished” we were told that all of our sins were forgiven, past, present and future. When He died for us, none of this current generation was alive so all of our sins were in the future. Oh, He died for all of my sins, future included! Blessed Lamb of God, our JESUS!

The body of JESUS had to be put in the tomb quickly as the Sabbath was approaching. Hence the anointing spices had yet to be applied. Oh, Love of our Heavenly Father! He allowed that purposely so that the women would go to the tomb on the first day of the week. Instead of having the privilege of anointing the body of JESUS they had the greater privilege of being the first to see He is risen!

The first person to see JESUS alive was Mary Magdalene from whom seven demons had been cast out. Imagine the torment she had been under before she encountered our LORD! The one who was the neediest saw JESUS first.

Are you desperate and needy, treasured reader?

So many beautiful truths were presented. But I close with two final thoughts. The skeptics claimed that the disciples stole the body of JESUS. But the grave clothes were rolled up and the face cloth was folded separately. If they really stole the body of Him does one really think they would have taken the time to take off and roll up the grave clothes? Would they have taken the time to take the face cloth off and folded it separately?

Finally, JESUS did not need the stone rolled away. At this point He was able to pass through walls in His resurrected body. The stone was not rolled away so that He could come forth. The stone was rolled away so that we can look in and see that He is not there in that tomb! HE IS RISEN!
