An Unlikely Yet Timely Message for Easter: A Taboo #metoo

Thursday, March 29th, 2018

Depending on your theology, or even lack thereof, we are in Resurrection/Easter season. Rather than address the debates that often ensue around the topic; ie. Did Constantine graft Christian Holy Days onto idolatry ridden feast days? I’m trying to be bold enough to approach the repentance factor that Christ brings to us beyond the Cross and Resurrection.

Dare we consider or even mention a devastating yet all too common practice among saints and sinners in the midst of observance of Easter season which celebrates the birth, ministry, crucifixion and victorious resurrection of Jesus Christ? As the question arises, we might ask another: What better time is there for repentance than Easter? Of course, every time is the right time to turn away from sin. Yet this timely message below cries out to be heard now.

Sadly, there is a taboo #metoo movement in the household of faith. At “#ChurchMeToo Movement: A Prophetic Alert to the Body of Christ,” Johnny Enlow of Santa Clarita, CA writes about sexual abuse in the Body of Christ.

In a few days, little children all over the world will be singing a familiar church song: “He [Jesus] Arose.” Yes, Jesus arose and is alive today, softly and tenderly praying for us to turn away from sin. At AlvedaKing.com we proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ. We also confront the lie of the human race being divided into separate races which breeds the sin of racism. We are not color blind. We are created in living color. Acts 17:26 truly proclaims that we are One Blood.

At CivilRightsfortheUnborn.com we deal with the sin of abortion. Johnny Enlow confronts the sin of sexual abuse. What sins are you battling with or hiding today? Easter is a great time to repent and be reconciled to Christ.

Repent from sin. Return to God!

Much is occurring during this Jubilee season; marked by the number 50. This is the 50 year landmark of the legacy of my uncle, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This is the season of the premier of the life of his brother, my father Rev. AD Williams King. (Trailer)

Ultimately it is the everlasting season to celebrate Jesus!

Happy Easter/Resurrection Day. Please pray for America and the world, every day.

Because He Lives: Abundant Life Is A Gift

Sunday is Resurrection Day, aka Easter. As we celebrate the blessings of our Lord, Jesus Christ, His sacrifice on Calvary’s Cross, dissension into Hell where he victoriously conquered Satan and ascension into Heaven as our High Priest, let’s rejoice and be glad!

Around the world Easter is still linked to pagan fertility customs, including the Easter Bunny, Easter egg hunts, and a time for family gatherings. Yet there’s so much more.

Since the Fall of Adam and Eve and consequent sin sickness, we’ve needed rescue. Jesus (God’s Son, the “new Adam”) was born to die on the cross and then rise three days later after conquering death. His death and life assured all humanity of eternal life.

None of this would have been possible if not for Mary the Virgin’s “yes” to GOD and “yes” in the miraculous conception and birth of Christ. If she had said no then there would be no salvation, no eternal life, no Easter. Thank God we don’t have to imagine that!

This Easter we need to pray for America. We need to pray that parents all over the world will love their children, born and unborn, and trust in God’s good graces for abundant life.
