Dear Beachside Family and Friends
When attending a night of professional boxing there are several matches on the schedule or "card". There is the "undercard", matches between promising young fighters and older boxers considered to be out of their prime. When the undercard matches are complete, it is time for the MAIN EVENT, a match between established contenders in their prime, sometimes with championship ramifications. Many people who attend the fights are not interested in the early matches: they are only there for the MAIN EVENT.
About two thousand years ago the most important contest of all time was decided. Jesus was laid low by the devil, who thought crucifying Him would stop the ministry He so successfully pursued. Satan was so sure that killing Jesus would eliminate the threat to his demonic kingdom that He was unable to understand what God was planning. God—his plan that was previously hidden, even though he made it for our ultimate glory before the world began. But the rulers of this world have not understood it; if they had, they would not have crucified our glorious Lord (1 Cor 2;7-8) Satan's preoccupation with getting Jesus out of the way caused him to focus on small battles, and he was caught as an unknowing participant in the MAIN EVENT.
Jesus willingly offered Himself on the cross, shedding His blood for the forgiveness of our sins. He took on Satan in the MAIN EVENT, THE RESURRECTION, completely dominating him and utterly destroying his power over us. Jesus "wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it. (Col 2:14-15) Through His DEATH and RESURRECTION Jesus has broken the shackles that bound us and put them back on the devil.
Join us this Easter Sunday as we celebrate the MAIN EVENT, the RESURRECTION of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Prayer service begins at 9:30, and worship service at 10:00 am. Bring your family and friends and come expecting your Easter Miracle. The Lord is Risen, He is Risen Indeed!
