About These Posts

These posts are quotes from today's living Prophets and Apostles. In some instances I have utilized video clips - because some times you just have to hear their voice. Occasionally, I have abridged a quote, but only for space. Links are always provided so that you, the reader, can verify the accuracy of my posts, or read the entire message if you desire.

Rescued

In the words of the song “The Holy City”:
The scene was changed. …
The morn was cold and chill,
As the shadow of a cross arose
Upon a lonely hill. 1
For us our Heavenly Father gave His Son. For us our Elder Brother gave His life.

At the last moment the Master could have turned back. But He did not. He passed beneath all things that He might save all things: the human race, the earth, and all the life that ever inhabited it.

No words in Christendom mean more to me than those spoken by the angel to the weeping Mary Magdalene and the other Mary as they approached the tomb to care for the body of their Lord: “Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen” (Luke 24:5–6).

With this pronouncement, those who have lived and died, those who now live and one day will die, and those yet to be born and yet to die had just been rescued.
