Jesus the Conqueror

So today was Easter, Resurrection Sunday!

Today is the most important date in the Christian Calendar: the day that Jesus rose again to bring us eternal hope and everlasting life. He conquered death, hell and the grave. He conquered sin. He conquered everything.

This was the completed work of Christ manifested in this glorious event. And now, for anyone who believes, resurrection life is what Jesus offers to them.

Today we had a brilliant time at church as we looked at Jesus the Conqueror. People saw Jesus for who he was, is and will be and became Christians! Praise God! If you haven’t become a Christian, and you don’t know Jesus, this time of year is the golden opportunity. You have nothing to lose!

It’s been a great day. I’m going to end with the lyrics from an old hymn I remember. Happy Resurrection Sunday everyone 🙂

 

Jesus The Conqueror Reigns – Charles Wesley.

Jesus, the Conqueror, reigns,
In glorious strength arrayed,
His kingdom over all maintains,
And bids the earth be glad.
Ye sons of men, rejoice
In Jesus’ mighty love,
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice
To Him who rules above.

Extol His kingly power,
Kiss the exalted Son,
Who died, and lives, to die no more,
High on His Father’s throne;
Our Advocate with God,
He undertakes our cause,
And spreads through all the earth abroad
The victory of His cross.

That bloody banner see,
And in your Captain’s sight,
Fight the good fight of faith with me,
My fellow soldiers, fight!
In mighty phalanx joined,
To battle all proceed;
Armed with the unconquerable mind
Which was in Christ your Head.

Urge on your rapid course,
Ye blood besprinkled bands;
The heavenly kingdom suffers force,
’Tis seized by violent hands;
See there the starry crown
That glitters through the skies!
Satan, the world, and sin, tread down,
And take the glorious prize.

Through much distress and pain,
Through many a conflict here,
Through blood, ye must the entrance gain;
Yet, O disdain to fear!
Courage! your Captain cries,
Who all your toil foreknew
Toil ye shall have; yet all despise,
I have o’ercome for you.

The world cannot withstand
Its ancient conqueror,
The world must sink beneath
The hand which arms us for the war;
This is the victory!
Before our faith they fall;
Jesus hath died for you and me;
Believe, and conquer all!
