We pity the poor souls who only think of Easter as a time for eggs, candy, and spring break. The benefits of the resurrection of Jesus Christ are incalculable and will resound through the ages of ages in the most spectacular advances of mankind.
One of the most well known benefits of the resurrection is the death of death which has been swallowed up by life eternal. Just as all men died in Adam, all are made alive in Jesus.
We excitedly await the return of Jesus to establish his millennial kingdom which will turn swords into ploughshares, spears into pruning hooks, and man shall learn war no more. This contrasts sharply with the USA which spends nearly one half of the world’s war budget to protect itself from an ever paranoid number of fears and to conquer all who stand its way for oil and domination.
Jesus’ yoke is light, meaning that he does not impose onerous burdens like the scribes, Pharisees, and Sadducees who are much like the politicians of the modern police state.
Although his yoke is light, he is also the Lion of Judah and the Stone not cut by human hands who will destroy the empires of the gentiles and usher in the Peaceable Kingdom of goodness where CIA terrorism is no more and central banksters’ enslavements are crushed.
But ultimately, Jesus is depicted as the Lamb upon the throne, who after defeating the barbaric gentile empires and the corporate Mammons, will reign in meekness – just as a lamb is.
Easter should always be a time of jubilation; for its gifts are endless.
