With every agony there is an ecstacy...
With every ecstacy comes an agony...
Such is the way it always was...
Is now ...and ever shall be.
Good Friday, the most violent,
Agonizing, of all days viewed.
The brutality, bleeding, suffering...
Beatings... the vilest ever spewed.
Jesus, bleeding so profusely,
Agonized upon that Cross
He could have called ten thousand Angels
But had an image to emboss...
It was an image of redemption...
A reprieve from Satan's Hell...
The image in His hands and feet
Would remind us all so well
Of cancellation of the punishment
Deserved for all our sin...
An image of the sweetest love
Which forgiveness came wrapped in.
Oh, what ecsatcy bestowed on us
By the Lord's great sacrifice.
We have escaped the agony
By the Blood of Jesus Christ.
So, on this Resurrection Sunday
Let's recall His ecstacy...
When He came up out of that grave...
He rescued you and me.
He defeated that old wicked one...
Left him toothless and in pain.
And, by the Grace of God, we don't
Have to fear his bite again.
And, O, the ecstacy to know
That Heaven is our Home...
Jesus paid the way for us...
We're of the Lazarus syndrome.

1 John 3:8
The one who does what is sinful is of the devil,
because the devil has been sinning from the
beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy thedevil's work.
Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection,
and the life: he that believeth in me, though
he were dead, yet shall he live: 26And whosoever
liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest
As they entered the tomb, they saw a
young man dressed in a white robe sitting
on the right side, and they were alarmed.
“Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking
for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He
has risen! He is not here. See the place where
they laid him.
But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going
ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him,
just as he told you.’
