Easter Rejoicing

Walking down the road with Jesus

Hand in hand and oh so close

Whispering words of mercy,

And love and grace and peace

Telling me He loves me Over and over and over again, Total trust, no need to fear Peace beyond measure Pure and true Down beautiful lanes By still still waters We walk side by side My beloved and I, Sun on our backs Gentle breezes upon our face

But then a dark cloud comes before Him And my Jesus becomes quiet and sad “My child, I must go now and die upon a cross to destroy the works of the evil one and set the captives free” “No, my Lord, that cannot be true That wasn’t the plan we disciple had planned”

He is coming, our friend Who we trusted and prayed with, who saw blind eyes open and deaf ears hear” Judas bought the massed armed guards And I could never erase the shame I felt As I ran for my life, not prepared to die,

I heard the terrible whispers from within my dark mournful house My Jesus, whom I loved Now crucified and left alone to die Two whole days I did not eat Just wept and wept for all I was worth Afraid and alone, deserter of my Lord Afraid to testify to His outstanding love and works

When all at once on Sunday morn the widows rattled, the house shook A mighty wind blew, and an awesome peace came in One that surpasses all knowledge Thoughts and every fear beyond and there beside me once again Jesus came to stand, I hid my face beneath the sheets and begged Him to leave me Such a sin filled man

But Jesus drew ever nearer and lifted the sheet from upon my face “My child, you do not need to hide Your sins are no more have paid the price No longer has death got the And I made anew your life There is no need to fear

From the great white throne Through me they clothe you In righteousness joy and peace My Father has made you His precious son

Then oh such joy filled my heart and rivers of pure love flowed over me “Now I must go to see my friends And bring them peace as well Go my friend and pray with brothers and sisters together as one and wait for my appointed anointed one to give you power and awesome gifts

The Holy Spirit fell in that upper room A Day I will never forget Awesome power and boldness of speech with the languages of ten thousand gathered there and now I am no longer afraid to die or testify about my king Forever I am changed by the transforming blood of Christ



Holy spirit giver of gifts

Oh precious Holy Spirit I surrender and submit to you

for you fill me with power and strength. You fell

me with living water and the never ending love of God

It was you oh Precious one who has been there throughout the bible,

filling your people with awesome gifts that bring in the mighty

Kingdom of God

You remind me of Samson, filled with

Supernatural strength to bring down the place where He was being held. Captive

, even though he had disobeyed you. you heard his cry to

bring down the walls. of His enemies

You gave elijah Supernatural Vision

to see the chariots of fire when the army

was camped around them

You gave Isaiah Prophesy to call

the nations to repent and warn them of what was going to take place because of their rebellion and Sion

Joseph Interpreted pharaohs dreams

and had the dreams that He had given come true. You gave the people building the

temple the vision to create the plans to the exact fulfillment, experts on their field but filled with much insight

Then when Jesus came with His

disciples. You filled them with your power prophecy. healing, Authority over the demons

preaching the word of God with Such wisdom and insight

and they returned full of So much

Joy. Then finally at the day of pentecost when you fell on Jesus} precious baby church

and gave them differant tongues so all the people heard them preach in so many languages

And now oh precious Holy Spirit

I pray, that you would fill me, to the

top and overflowing with the gifts that I need

to further your Kingdom

come now Holy Spirit I surrender

and submit to you once again.
