On March 27, 2005, Roger Bennett wrote the following article, Why The Cross, Why The Tomb? – for Easter of that year. I thought it would fit as a perfect conclusion to our little study on the blood of Jesus Christ. Enjoy!March 27, 2005… Why The Cross, Why The Tomb? “In the current environment of…

Easter 2012 – Only By The Blood…

I’ve been thinking about this topic, (the blood of Christ), for a while in preparation for these posts. I really wanted the last post to be the grand finale – the climax – the best of them all…yet, it’s hard to sum up everything we’ve talked about over the course of a week in one…

Easter 2012 – Just One Drop…

So…blood is powerful, isn’t it?  While doing the research for these posts, I learned a lot about blood and how it functions in our bodies.  Quotes like this grabbed my attention, *1“Every three seconds someone needs blood,” and “There is no substitute for human blood.” That’s some powerful information, and I’m not sure I grasp…

Easter 2012 – The Healing Stream Of 2000 + Years

“It’s a healing stream, a fountain, an eternal cleansing flood.” For the last few posts we’ve been taking a deeper look into the importance of the blood of Jesus Christ.  Today, I would like to take a different approach to the same subject and do a little “compare and contrast” with the blood in our…

Introduction: Easter 2012 – It’s All About The Blood

“God’s love is all about the blood of Jesus Christ.” Last year for Easter we took a look at different characters surrounding the cross: the Roman Centurion, Peter, the thief on the cross, Barabbas, Joseph and of course none other than our Lord Himself. This year, I’d like to do a completely different study with…

Valentine’s Part Four – Actions Speak Louder Than Words

Actions speak louder than words…we’re all familiar with that saying.  I’m sure everyone can think back to a time in their life when someone’s actions spoke volumes about their love that words wouldn’t be able to describe.  We could all stop right now and make a list of those moments.  Some would be long, others…

Valentine’s Part Three – God of Love Versus gods of Fear

An African Proverb reads – “It is better to be loved than feared.” Odd statement coming from Africa, isn’t it?  When we read about Africa don’t we read about superstition and fear?  When is the last time you heard the words “gods,” “Africa,” and “love” all in the same sentence?  Instead, we find tribes of…
