This is Christ Pantokrator, “Christ the Ruler of All,” as portrayed in an ancient church in Sicily. Today on Easter Sunday we celebrate His resurrection from the dead.
Or Lord our God, and Father of All: grant this Easter day of 2019 power to work all throughout the year, every day, to draw our hearts to Jesus Christ–by whose blood we are saved, by whose wounds we are healed; Jesus Christ, our rightful King and only Savior.
Do as thou has said, O Lord! Make His enemies His footstool, put all things under Him, make all things new and wash away all tears: we pray for the restitution of all things, under the Lordship of Jesus Christ the King of kings. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
I knew I’d want to post this more than once, leading up to Easter–Up from the Grave He Arose, by the Voice of Eden. And see–they’ve got 300,000 views for it, so I’m not the only one. Anyway, it’s an ideal hymn for Easter.
Yes, I know I posted this hymn just the other day. But Erlene requested it just now, Easter is coming, and this is surely one of the Easter hymns–Christ the Lord is Risen Today, written by Charles Wesley in 1739; sung here by the Yoder family.
With gorgeous photos of God’s handiwork, proclaiming His glory and His love, and His ever-present nearness to us.
Our friend SlimJim continues his work of refuting supposed “contradictions” within the Bible. Rather amazing it’s lasted several thousand years, eh? But “skeptics” are only skeptical about God’s word. To man’s word they extend unlimited credulity. –LD
