God bless you and yours as we head into Resurrection Weekend. Hallelujah to the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, for taking our sin and shame upon Himself that we might be healed!
Isaiah 53:2-6 beautifully reads,
2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
I've told my wife and church that if I die before the rapture, Isaiah 53 (the whole chapter) is the Scripture I want read at my funeral. This is because Jesus' death gave me the eternal life I have today. I have no life without Jesus' death and resurrection.
Brother Branham said Jesus' disciples received the greatest message any man could ever receive on Easter morning:
But on Easter morning, when these disciples got the greatest Message that any man could ever get, what did they get? “Go, tell my disciples, I am risen from the dead!” Death had been conquered! 60-0417M - Go, Tell
Praise the Living God, Jesus is risen from the dead! This is the greatest message any man could ever get. There is no greater message! We are so blessed to have this message to share with our friends, family, and associates. It will never get old. It only gets greater with time!
Now, for some updates about the ministry.
Our podcast has over 120 downloads and reached into 16 countries. We're hoping to record another episode in the next two weeks.
I'm presently editing my next YouTube video about the Brown Bear Vision, and it's rather long, so expect it next week, Lord willing. I'm also researching the next video about the Seven Seals and the fact Brother Branham did NOT plagaize Charles Taze Russell and Clarence Larkin. Brother Branham's accusers are currently publishing videos about this subject, and their research is incredibly weak and seemingly disingenuous. I'm shocked by their lack of research because they claim to be committed to honest research. I'll be contacting them as well to share my findings after I finish the Seven Seals-Russell-Larkin video.
I'm not writing another book at this point. I feel like I need to publish more videos defending Brother Branham and his ministry before getting back into the book writing mode. I have one chapter started about the subject of the family, and so Lord willing, at some point in the future I'll resume writing.
May the Lord Jesus bless your Resurrection services this weekend. We'll be gathering for service on Good Friday and taking the Lord's Supper. I'll be preaching in Columbus, Ohio, on Saturday night and a sun rise service on Sunday morning.
Let's joyfully and gladly proclaim the greatest message any man could ever receive, that "Jesus Christ is risen from the dead!"
In His Resurrection Life,
