The Real Meaning of Easter founded on the truth

the real meaning of easter

Some people mourn and cry that Jesus died, but it shouldn’t end there. When we know the real meaning of easter, we understand that He did not only die but also rose again and there is significance in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. When Jesus died for our sins, we also died. When He was raised from the dead, we were raised together with him. He paid debts on our behalf, and that means our debts were paid in full.

When Jesus I paid the price my price was paid for also. The question we should always ask ourselves is this, where are we now? We are seated together with Him and in Him, in the heavenly places.

The meaning of easter

Ephesians 2:5-6 says,  “even when we were dead in our trespasses, 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,”

The life we now have is a supernatural life and not a natural life. Where He has made you and I to seat together with Christ, in heavenly places. Raised together means, nothing can put you down, or out. Sickness, sin, financial difficulties, mental issues, racism, depression, and any other thing have no power over you. That is the true meaning of easter.

According to the above word from the book of Ephesians, you ought to understand and be fully convinced of where you are in Christ. And if Jesus Christ is not yet your Lord and Savior, this is one reason why he should be your Lord and Saviour. It is through His death, resurrection, and ascension that He fulfilled His purpose on earth.

When Jesus rose from the dead He arose in the power of the spirit of God. That same power is he power He desires for you o live life by. Power over any circumstance that life could ever throw at you. Knowing that you are seated together with Christ, in the heavenly places you are seated in power and authority over Satan.

Ephesians 1:19 say,  “I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms,  far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.”

There is an exceedingly great power which He wrought in Christ and raised him from the dead, and sat Him at His right hand in the heavenly places. Far above all principality and power. This means we are in a place of power. And that’s why your life is far above all principality, power, might, and dominion.

‘This is a true saying: “If we have died with him, we shall also live with him. ‘ 2 Timothy 2:11 GNB‬‬

Jesus died and was buried– Easter means your old self and nature may die and be buried with Him. You are not defined by your old person, you are defined by Jesus Christ.

He was raised– So that new life would be birthed in you. Forget all things of your past.

He ascended– that you may dominate! Not fit in, not compete, but dominate.

He lives– If you want to live out the real meaning of easter, you need to reflect the love of Christ! If Christ died that we may live, we should live a life that is evidence of the life Jesus Christ died for.

Easter tells us of our position in Christ Jesus.

That by virtue of his resurrection we have a glorious, victorious, and triumphant life in Christ Jesus. Jesus raised and elevated me far above poverty lack and shortage, and therefore we are obliged to reject the demeaning life. The kind of life that puts you down. A life of dishonor is not where he has placed us. You are a man or woman of honor. This kind of place in the heavenly is not that of shame.

If you are in Christ Jesus, there is no need or obligation to suffer. Because Jesus suffered all for you and me. There is no reward for suffering, sickness, and poverty. Believe in what Jesus came to do. And dislike anything contrary to this.  It is your choice. Regardless of what circumstance you find yourself in. You are responsible to change it.

There is no solution that can come to you in this world that can match the permanent solution that Jesus came to give you. Jesus is the ultimate solution to all problems. This is good news for you. You can end suffering and enjoy a wonderful life today in Jesus Christ. Who resurrected for you, and placed you above all circumstances.

Jesus Christ is not to be commercialized

“Herald and preach the Word! Keep your sense of urgency [stand by, be at hand and ready], whether the opportunity seems to be favorable or unfavorable. [Whether it is convenient or inconvenient, whether it is welcome or unwelcome, you as a preacher of the Word are to show people in what way their lives are wrong.] And convince them, rebuking and correcting, warning and urging and encouraging them, being unflagging and inexhaustible in patience and teaching.” ‭‭2 Timothy‬ ‭4:2‬ ‭AMPC

The great commission doesn’t start and end with Easter, Christmas, Ash Wednesday, or other holiday celebrations on the Christian calendar. Living in, like, and for Christ is a lifestyle, not a Christian holiday blog post or commercial to clear the shelves of your confectionery shop of all candy and gifts. It is not an opportunity for your business to make skyrocketing sales.

Personally, I would rather preach His death and resurrection on any other day except the Easter holiday. Because it is on the 1st of Aug, the 23rd of Feb, the 19th of Sept, and any other day when the homeless don’t get free lunch, those grieving do not get comfort or the lost do not get ”found’.

It is on all those other days when Jesus isn’t commercialized or abused for self-glory that people really need to know that they are loved, forgiven, saved, redeemed, whole, and healed. It is on every other day that believers neglect our mission to make disciples of all nations.

God encourages us to preach the good news to the whole world. Teaching everyone who is willing to listen to what God has to offer. God instructs us to stand up and share what we have freely received, Jesus Christ. It is our mandate, whether we are welcomed or not.

Remember this each time you celebrate easter.

God bless
