He is risen

While Christmas is the expression of Christian hope, Easter is the expression of Christian certainty. It is of particular import at this time, when the once-Christian West, having fallen away from its faith, reels before five decades of invasion from the pagan East and South.

But it is always darkest before the dawn and this present darkness is far from the most dangerous that Christianity or Western civilization have endured.

The solution to the decline of the West is not to be found in politics, in tribalism, in violence, or even in the courage of its defenders. The solution is the hope that can only come from the faith in the Risen Lord Jesus Christ and obedience to the Word of God.

Without that faith, Western Man lacks purpose. Without that obedience, the nations of Europe miss the societal discipline that made them historically great. As C.R. Hallpike has shown, neither science nor secular humanism are credible replacements for Christianity and the cultural confidence that is a consequence of Christian hope and Christian faith.

So, don't despair that the soldiers of Islam are on the march again. Don't despair that the weak-in-faith have succumbed to temptation and doubt and have fallen away. Don't despair that the numbers of the faithful have dwindled. Don't despair that the pews of the unfaithful churches are empty. Don't despair that those who call themselves Christian leaders throw the children's bread to the dogs.

And don't be surprised that the worship of the world and acceptance of its Narrative has enervated the converged institutions. All of this should fill you with confidence, with certainty, because all of it is exactly as we were told it would be.

Remember, Jesus Christ of Nazareth required a mere 12 apostles to change the course of human history and shake the world. It doesn't matter if there are one billion believers or only one dozen, the Gates of Hell will not prevail.

So stand firm in your faith. Stand fast. Speak fearlessly. When you feel fear, when you feel doubt, think about the empty tomb. For he is risen and he has not given you a spirit of fear, but of victory. The victory that we celebrate today.

Happy Easter.

Thank you for this, Vox.

For the first time in a long while, I felt a genuine joy at today's Easter service. Jesus is Risen! The tomb is empty!

As you rightly point out, the implications for us as believers are profound and game-changing. If we need not fear death, we also need not fear what man can do to us.

Jesus is alive and our life is hid in Him!

Thank you again, Vox. Your work and your faith continue to be an inspiration to me.

Thank you for this message, Vox. It's an expression of truth and faith that all Christians need. The personal, tangible promise inherent in Resurrection Sunday for me is that I will soon (and very soon) be reunited with my precious husband... and all the other loved ones who have gone before me, including an infant grandson. As the time draws nearer, the prospect of being face to face with my Lord and Saviour takes on a wondrous reality.

Since 2009 I have sat at my desk, monkeying with my Easter sermon, when I take a moment's respite to go over to VP and read Vox's Easter message. It's yet another ray of light on this glorious and triumphant day.

These holiday posts are my favorite, because they are an overt expression of the one reason I read VP religiously. Vox is the one of the few commentators out there who is aligned with reality, which makes VP required reading. But it would be impossible to take such a strong dose of reality without the underlying sense of joyful resolve that suffuses VP, and that resolve can only come from the hope and certainty that we have as followers of Jesus Christ.

Who, being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
rather, he made himself nothing
by taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
by becoming obedient to death—
even death on a cross!
Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.

And if the Messiah has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith . . . And if the Messiah has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins . . . If only for this life we have hope in the Messiah, we are of all people most to be pitied.

But the Messiah has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. For as in Adam all die, so in the Messiah all will be made alive. But each in turn: the Messiah, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him.

(cf. I Corinthians 15)

This wouldn't be a bad time for those of you who don't belong to him to reconsider and consider whether or not your hope has been misplaced.

Happy Easter to all my Messiah-lovin' brethren among the Ilk! We do not worship a G-d Who is G-d of the dead.

And to all my beloved Jewish brethren who do not yet believe, may you consider the deep and prescient significance of the akeidah, the ashes of Isaac, that Abraham saw the Messiah's day, declared Adonai Yireh ... and rejoiced.

Yet it was the L-rd’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer,
and though the Lord makes His life an offering for sin,
he will see His offspring and prolong his days,
and the will of the L-rd will prosper in his hand.
After he has suffered,
he will see the light of life and be satisfied;
by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many,
and he will bear their iniquities.
Therefore I will give him a portion among the great,
and he will divide the spoils with the strong,
because he poured out his life unto death,
and was numbered with the transgressors.
For he bore the sin of many,
and made intercession for the transgressors.

(cf. Yesheyahu (Isaiah) 53)

Happy Easter, thank you for speaking for those of us who can't, we are weak. With the moon I was captivated with a late night walk thinking about how could I ever understand the harmonious gospels or in sync events - Lord, you deliver me and so many others, please help dad pass on, help - pull us forward for your glory or for your work intended for us.

Balm to my wounds, Vox, agreed, let us stand for Christ as we always pray to stand. Stand alone on our own side or with others.

We are promised suffering to help us grow, let us flower where we are planted in Christ. Matt. Chap 13 to 15, John 17 - my mind's cry and plea for prayer. A quiet life to understand I don't have the voice but others do, I can support and promote them while living in obscurity learning the lessons I was intended to.

Let us stand, Let Mercy Lead, that Tomb is empty, He is Risen.

Lord, help us us, help me, thank you for never giving up on dad, me and countless others. Only by your breath do I breath and live, thank you, I am beyond grateful, cease my fears about the geriatric care, help me endure the enemies harassment, deliver (us) me from evils.

Forgive me for my failures from 2006 to 2014 - I am stupid and didn't know but You know, help me let issues go. With your promptings I am freed from the the memories that assault me cleanse me with hyssop, cleanse me from my sin, your mercy, your goodness and mercy is at my right and left, let (us) me walk in that.

Let us nullify despair!! despair is another (almost SJW attack) of distortion, deception and depression thus preventing us from creating what The Lord placed in our hearts to create!

Daily Devotional March 27, 2016
Great Thoughts of Christ

She said, "Yes, Lord, yet even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters' table." Matthew 15:27

This woman gained comfort in her misery by thinking great thoughts of Christ.

The Master had talked about the children's bread. "Now," she argued, "since You are the Master of the table of grace, I know that You are a generous housekeeper, and there is sure to be plenty of bread on Your table. There will be such an abundance for the children that there will be crumbs to throw on the floor for the dogs, and the children will fare none the worse because the dogs are fed." She thought Him one who kept so fine a table that all that she needed would only be a crumb in comparison; yet remember, what she wanted was to have the devil cast out of her daughter. It was a very great thing to her, but she had such a high esteem of Christ that she said, "It is nothing to Him; it is but a crumb for Christ to give."

This is the royal road to comfort. Great thoughts of your sin alone will drive you to despair; but great thoughts of Christ will guide you into the haven of peace. "My sins are many, but oh, it is nothing to Jesus to take them all away. The weight of my guilt presses me down as a giant's foot would crush a worm, but it is no more than a grain of dust to Him, because He has already borne its curse in His own body on the tree. It will be only a small thing for Him to give me full remission, although it will be an infinite blessing for me to receive it." The woman opens her needy soul very wide, expecting great things of Jesus, and He fills it with His love.

Dear reader, do the same. She won the victory by believing in Him. Her case is an instance of prevailing faith; and if we would conquer like her, we must imitate her tactics.

I have looked forward to Vox's Easter message every year since I've been a reader. Thank you again, sir.

In His sign we will conquer, brothers.

That is my nomniee for post of the year, great job, Vox. I could never top that, but I know someone who could. This is one my favorites. So simple, yet so incredibly moving:

Luke 24:5 In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, "Why do you look for the living among the dead?

A day late on this thread, but wouldn't you know, the message is still relevant, as it will be tomorrow and all days that follow.

Next time you take Communion/Eucharist with your local group of believers....just remember it is a memorial to the fact that we Christians are all part of a plot bent and destined toward total World domination....even so come quickly Lord.

Vox, I have been revisiting the Scriptures using the Oxford Companion. I know the Good Book is sacrosanct, but a random thought had me wondering what the Book of Revelation is meant to depict.

Global Evangelism

After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. - Revelation 7:9-10


And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. - Revelation 9:16-18

Finance & The Surveillance State

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. - Revelation 13:16-18

My question is...

Could the Book of Revelation be a reverse time capsule?

The companion speaks of a horizontal apocalypse and a vertical apocalypse; the former is a time of great catastrophe before God's will is restored. The latter is an excavating of many secrets.

Could they be happening at the same time? You are a science fiction aficionado, so you probably know plenty about the research behind parallel (horizontal) universes. Could the early church have received a heavily veiled message from a realm which survived all of the calamities mentioned at the end of the New Testament and ventured into an era of (vertical) prosperity?

As far as who has the capacity to tear holes into the time-space continuum and discover humankind's fate, the usual suspects must be considered. However, means and ends will not be revealed, so the Gentiles must hypothesize.

If hypothesis is not enough, we must prepare.

Are our pastors telling us the truth?

Are Christian pastors honest with their congregations regarding the evidence for the Resurrection? Is there really a "mountain of evidence" for the Resurrection as our pastors claim or is the belief in the Resurrection based on nothing more than assumptions, second century hearsay, superstitions, and giant leaps of faith?

Check out this Christian pastor's defense of the Resurrection and a review by one of his former parishioners who lost his faith and is now an nonbeliever primarily due to the lack of good evidence for the Resurrection:
