Resurrection Sunday has begun in accordance with Jewish standards. Yet few people realize the fullness of this day. This is the day that YHWH put on the calendar of mankind as their Day of Redemption. Before the Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) made Himself known in the days of the New Testament, there was only purification and sanctification through water and obedience to YHWH's declared laws. Furthermore, people still had to make a special sacrifice offering of redemption once a year to atone for their sins.
However, Yeshua revolutionized all of these things by taking on the sins of all mankind from Earth and for all time, including today. Though water continues to have a place in purification and sanctification; it is the acceptance of the work of Yeshua, including resurrection, that makes redemption possible for all mankind. The cost of sin continues to lead to a spiritual death, yet, because of the work of Yeshua, all of mankind has the opportunity to have a spiritual eternal life for their souls through Him!
Today, if you have already received Yeshua (Jesus) as your Savior and Lord, you have been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb of God (Jesus). Today is a day of rejoicing and we can sing, "Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, I'm redeemed, I'm redeemed, praise the Lord"!
Happy Resurrection Sunday.
