He is Risen!


    The world pauses today as nearly 2.4 billion Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. It is the high point of the church year, marking the culmination of Christ’s mission and his final triumph over sin and death.

    Typically, church attendance swells for the Easter Vigil and Sunday morning celebrations. COVID interrupted this 2,000-year-old tradition last spring, when vast numbers of churches canceled in-person liturgies and services, including here in Alaska. Gratefully, most of these churches are now reopened.

    As we prepare feasts and family gatherings, decorate eggs and don our Sunday best, let us fully embrace this day that rises above the struggles and political fights plaguing our weary world. Easter bespeaks a profound unity that encompasses and transcends every language, race, tribe and nation. This is the hope for mankind. A Savior bore our sins, loved us unto death … and “He is Risen!”

    1. Just because we were born into tradition does not make it right YASHUA is our passover not our Easter or Ishtar. Rome changed the Messiahs name some 400 years Later to Jesus Why??? The spoken name YASHUA uttered by GOD was not good enough ? Or were the subtle changes invoked by satan himself as a hatred of the Jew and humanity as a whole? ,,, The dipping of the eggs was a pagan ritual of fertility as was the Bunny kick where the egg was dipped in human blood the bunnies and eggs were symbols of sexual orgies.. This life is not a dress rehearsal please seek the truth. We have been fed so many lies. The blending of cult and truth has resulted in where we are at today a confused mass of humanity. There is a video that defines what the Church has done to itself by a Canadian Pastor as the police have come to enforce the Govt by intimidation of presence, The police did not expect the spirit of GOD within this man as most Churches in the west have bowed to their pagan master 501c3 and forsaken GOD and flock…. I hope all Pastors watch and cringe at their cowardice to defend their GOD… Happy Passover

    2. Ok what he said was Bull Crap. We Celebrate Jesus dying for our sins. The eggs are for the children to enjoy and teach the word of are lord!

      • Oh to give the gift of just one moment you would research…. if you do just look at the rolling of eggs and its beginning then apology accepted..

    3. Amen
      There’s an empty tomb
      He is risen
      Go and preach the gospel to ever land
      Jesus Loved us all red, yellow, black and white.

    4. Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday are the pivotal points in history. By the former we are saved from eternal death, by the latter we are given access to eternal life. And all a free gift! Thank you Jesus!
