I am celebrating the Resurrection with my Christian family for Easter and in a few weeks I will celebrate the Resurrection with my Messianic Jewish family for Passover. Which ever you celebrate its about Jesus and His death burial and Resurrection. Without Him their is no hope.
 
As I Peter 1: 3-6 says:

3 Let us thank the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It was through His loving-kindness that we were born again to a new life and have a hope that never dies. This hope is ours because Jesus was raised from the dead. 4 We will receive the great things that we have been promised. They are being kept safe in heaven for us. They are pure and will not pass away. They will never be lost. 5 You are being kept by the power of God because you put your trust in Him and you will be saved from the punishment of sin at the end of the world.6 With this hope you can be happy even if you need to have sorrow and all kinds of tests for awhile.

This is a prayer prayed by Moses over 4,000 years and I pray to the Lord with this prayer for you:

“The Lord Bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.”

The world is nuts but God is still in control.

Happy Easter Brothers and Sisters Gods Blessings to You All.

Have a blessed and happy Easter.
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

- Thomas Jefferson
