Sunday Walk 35 – Easter

αναστας δε πρωι πρωτη σαββατου εφανη πρωτον μαρια τη μαγδαληνη αφ ης εκβεβληκει επτα δαιμονια

Mark 16:9 Textus Receptus with various translations

Mario Murillo described a woman who was once demon possessed and sold on the streets in “Mary Magdalene on the Day Jesus Died”. After Jesus cast out her demons she followed Him. Then came the crucifixion.

And then came the power of the resurrection.

In his Easter blog post this morning Mario Murillo wrote, “Easter is not polite. It is fire!  It is not about bunnies or eggs, and it has no place among the other harmless religious holidays.”

The resurrection separates Easter from other religious holidays. That resurrection is the assurance of the coming judgement.

διοτι εστησεν ημεραν εν η μελλει κρινειν την οικουμενην εν δικαιοσυνη εν ανδρι ω ωρισεν πιστιν παρασχων πασιν αναστησας αυτον εκ νεκρων

Acts 17:31 Textus Receptus with various translations

Geri Ungurean linked to this song in a recent post.

An Easter Hallelujah
Reminder: There is more going on with the Resurrection of Jesus than New Age sentiment about the rising sun

Sunday Walk 29

I first heard this song on a post by Geri Ungurean. I like the deep sound of their voices as well as the message.

I am also grateful to Geri Ungurean for suggesting Brave browser with the Duck Duck Go search extension as an alternative to Google’s Chrome and search engine. The goal is to allow open searches and cut down on tracking and ads.

I installed Brave, took the option to let Brave copy over my bookmarks from Chrome and then searched for Duck Duck Go from the Brave browser where I found a link to install it as an extension.

I did some other tweaks to the home page like disabling fake news feeds. So far things are working all right. I am also looking at the Opera browser now that I’m in the mood to try new software.
