LIFE is on the OTHER SIDE OF THE CROSS
BY: SUNNY and ROGER COFFMAN
We are continually amazed how few folks have really gotten the message of the cross – the message being: JESUS DIED IN YOUR PLACE! Yes, the Bible says that it is appointed unto man to die and then the judgment… but so many have not accepted the death that JESUS experienced as their death… and yet He makes it so plain in so many of His teachings. What is the hindrance to comprehending the true significance of His death AS US?
We’re more convinced now than ever before that the “lingerings” of religion… those attachments… entanglings that have never broken… keep the door open to deception. This is not a message about deliverance – and yet it is, too!
But the deliverance that we would like ALL to see is simply, gloriously, unquestionably… THAT THIS FULFILLMENT of MAN’s APPOINTMENT TO DIE has ALREADY BEEN KEPT! The FULL SACRIFICE has ALREADY BEEN MADE!
So, what’s it going to take for many folks to receive the revelation of this LIBERATING TRUTH? A more intimate relationship with Father would be a major step in the “right” direction… intimacy with Him will definitely open the door for ALL TRUTH to be REVEALED. But it seems that so few choose to set aside the QUALITY TIME to be ALONE with HIM, in SILENCE, and seek HIS FACE – not HIS HAND… seek to KNOW HIM – not to “GET” from HIM!
With all of this in mind… our EASTER MESSAGE IS SIMPLY: “AWAKEN – OH, RIGHTEOUS of the LORD and come to the INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP with FATHER that is available to ALL – and COME to KNOW WHOSE YOU REALLY ARE – SEEING CLEARLY WHO YOU ARE IN HIM – SEEING CLEARLY you are HIS TEMPLE – the place of HIS ABODE – and be FORTIFIED in the CONFIDENCE that LIFE IS YOURS NOW… FEAR is DEFEATED… the GRAVE carries NO THREAT for YOU! ALL you have to do is COME THROUGH the CROSS – the ONLY DOOR to LIFE… and on the OTHER SIDE of the CROSS – THERE IS NO DEATH!
MAY the JOY of this SEASON of RESURRECTION OVERCOME ALL FEAR and BRING YOU TO A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING and APPRECIATION for the LIFE BEYOND the CROSS!
