JESUS DIED AND ROSE FROM THE DEAD!
In Nov. 2003 I was visiting Jerusalem and saw the Eastern Gate that has been sealed up, but nothing can prevent Jesus from returning again and entering into the city of Jerusalem. He will return through the Eastern Gate and establish 1,000 years of world peace. As Isaiah says, ‘For unto us a child is born unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace’ ( Isa 9:6).
Please watch the video and learn about the prophecy in Ezekiel 44:1-3 regarding the gate being sealed until the return of Christ. The signs in the world point to the soon coming of our LORD AND SOON COMING KING!
THE EASTERN GATE IN OLD CITY OF JERUSALEM
About a month ago, the Lord placed it upon my heart to do this drawing. It was not easy for me because I never worked with ink before. When I finished it, I also added a touch of color. This drawing speaks of Jesus’ IMMINENT return through the Eastern Gate of Jerusalem, as prophesied in the book of Ezekiel chapter 44!
About 600 B.C. the Lord God showed the prophet Ezekiel that the Eastern Gate was shut. Soon it will be re-opened for Jesus to enter in and God will establish the Millennial Kingdom of 1,000 years of righteousness, peace, and joy in the world.

The decorations for Easter/Resurrection Sunday were being taken down in our beautiful church when I decided to quickly take a picture. It was a memorable and touching service that started with a photo on the large screen showing the two pastors bearing this large (bare) wooden cross upon their shoulders on Good Friday. A small group walked with them along the street of the block where the church is located. What a difference in program from last year 2016. Besides the traditional brass ensemble and hand bell choir, we sang many of my favorite hymns- Christ the Lord is Risen Today, Because He Lives, Lord I Lift Your Name on High, (with hand motions by the congregation led by the song leader), and He Lives, the old-time hymn I used to sing in the Baptist church I attended as a teenager. Most importantly, the pastor preached a powerful message on the Risen Christ based on Mt. 28:1-10. Christ defeated sin and death at the cross for us.
CHRIST IS RISEN; HE IS RISEN INDEED!
HE IS OUR BLESSED HOPE AND COMING KING! HALLELUJAH!
