It's Friday... But Sunday's a Coming - YouTube

All around the world it's Friday, but Sunday's a Coming. 

All around the world it's Friday.  It's Friday in the inner city of Chicago and in Easter Ukraine.  It's Friday in the economic systems of America and the ecological disasters of Asia.  It's Friday in the ebola outbreak in Guinea, the famine South Sudan and the war in Syria.  It's Friday for Christians being persecuted in Pakistan and prisoners like Pastor Saeed in Iran.  

All around the world it's Friday.  But Sunday's Coming.    

Sunday is indeed, coming.

The REAL Bundy Ranch Story: Feds Forced to Surrender to American Ctizens - YouTube

Inspiring to see a group of American Citizens standing in unity.  The fact that they're on horseback is a bonus.  

I feel a tension when it comes to what role a Christian plays in these types of scenarios.   On the one hand I see Romans 15 and Paul's statement that the Government is put in place to execute judgment.  (written about a human rights abusing Roman government)   And on the other hand I see the Bible's theme of fighting for the oppressed.   God often exists right in the meaty part of the paradox.  

Either way, one thing is clear.  Major news outlets have relegated themselves to the sidelines of truth.   Watching a group of American citizens on foot and horseback staring down government forces armed with automatic weapons, sniper riffles, body armor, that's video footage that should be on every major network in America.  

Whatever the storyline is of the Bundy Ranch, there is another story.  The internet has leveled the playing field.  The major difference between what happened here and what happened in Waco or what happened with Elian Gonzales all those years ago was the internet.  The video footage we saw from those instances came along with a storyline.  The internet has provided the ability for footage to be shown to the entire world and for us to figure out the storyline without the help of CBS, NBC, ABC, et all. 

If Jesus Defeated Death, Why Do People Keep Dying?

Not dying isn't defeating death. 

Resurrection is.  

You can avoid death for a period of time, you can cheat death, you can even prolong the process of dying. But one day, the dead in Christ shall rise.  Defeating death.

Jesus was the first born from the dead. (Colossians 1:18) The first born of many.  

The promise of Easter so long ago is a promise to be reunited with those in Christ who have gone on before us.   What an incredible promise.  

1 Corinthians 15:52-57 On signal from that trumpet from heaven, the dead will be up and out of their graves, beyond the reach of death, never to die again. At the same moment and in the same way, we’ll all be changed. In the resurrection scheme of things, this has to happen: everything perishable taken off the shelves and replaced by the imperishable, this mortal replaced by the immortal. Then the saying will come true:

Death swallowed by triumphant Life!
Who got the last word, oh, Death?
Oh, Death, who’s afraid of you now?

It was sin that made death so frightening and law-code guilt that gave sin its leverage, its destructive power. But now in a single victorious stroke of Life, all three—sin, guilt, death—are gone, the gift of our Master, Jesus Christ. Thank God!

58 With all this going for us, my dear, dear friends, stand your ground. And don’t hold back. Throw yourselves into the work of the Master, confident that nothing you do for him is a waste of time or effort.
