It is finished!

  "Joseph took the body and wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and placed it in his own new rock hewn tomb,  and rolled a great stone across the entrance as he left."  Matthew 27:60 TLB
At that time and in that day, all seemed lost.  Even the inner circle could not fathom or grasp what had occurred, what was occurring, and what would occur!!!  Yet, now with hind sight and God's Word, we know this was God winning the war we could never win for us!  Without the blood shed on the cross, there can be no cleansing from sin.  With no cleansing, there is no hope.  Christ purchased for us hope on that cross.
If your Christ has no nail scars and blood stains, He's useless.  If your religion does not preach Christ crucified, it is pointless.  If you haven't been plunged to victory beneath the cleansing flood that flowed from Calvary, then you are lost.  Do not stay there!  Don't remain outside the fold.  Hear the shepherd say "Come!"  Hear the Master knocking on your heart's door!  He loves you and desires to abide with you always.                
"Time after time He has waited before, and now He is waiting again,
To see if you're willing to open the door.  Oh, how He wants to come in!"
Easter:  Matthew chapters 26-28
