Weekly Lesson Mailout

Hi Everyone!

He is Risen! He is Risen Indeed! Hey, Happy Easter. We had great lessons today....listen if you have the time. (

The Bible study today was on Revelation Chapter 8; the seventh seal is opened ushering in the trumpet partial judgments. This chapter has the first four trumpet soundings bringing one-third of the trees burned, all the green grass burned, one-third of the ocean turned to blood killing the ocean life and ships, and one-third of the fresh water supplies turned to Wormwood or bitter-poison water, and then one-third of the sun and moon light and stars lost. God is now using the earth itself to minister punishment. THEN we find out that the next three are three 'owes' warning the people of the earth of what's to come...worse that these four! And yes we know that this is God's wrath, but know that God is still extending mercy....inviting folks to salvation. The truth is that now is the best time to receive grace. Our time to serve is now.....extend yourself so that perhaps some can avoid the wrath of God as we pray and hope for rapture.

The sermon was on Mark Chapter 15- all the events from the false trials by the Jews up to and including Jesus' death on the cross. We learn that Jesus shows Pilate that He is God, King of the Jews, and Pilate tries to release Jesus. Jesus is scourged, humiliated, lead out to the Place of the Skull, and killed on the cross. I do really dislike teaching this chapter....the treatment of our Lord is almost too much to deal with. was all necessary so that we could be free from sin. He died for us, became the perfect sacrifice for all the sin of mankind, so that we might live with Him in heaven for ever. As we read this, know how much He loves you and me. Next week...He is risen in Mark Chapter 16!
