He is Risen!

Blessings to everyone on this Easter day (March 31, 2013)! Satan is defeated! Jesus is alive! 
‘Death has been swallowed up in victory. Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting? The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law,. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.  
(1 Corinthians 15: 54-56)
 He’s risen, he’s risen, Christ Jesus the Lord;
He opened death’s prison, the incarnate Word.
Break forth, hosts of heaven, in jubilant song
And earth, sea, and mountain the praises prolong.

The foe was triumphant when on Calvary
The Lord of creation was nailed to the tree,
In Satan’s domain did the hosts shout and jeer,
For Jesus was slain, whom the evil ones fear.

But short was their triumph; the Savior arose,
And death, hell, and Satan he vanquished, his foes.
The conquering Lord lifts his banner on high;
He lives, yes, he lives, and will nevermore die.
Oh, where is your sting, death? We fear you no more;
Christ rose, and now open is fair Heaven’s door.
For all our transgressions his blood does atone;
Redeemed and forgiven, we now are his own.  

Then sing your hosannas and raise your glad voice;
Proclaim the blest tidings that all may rejoice.
Laud, honor, and praise to the Lamb that was slain,
Who now sits in glory and ever shall reign.
(Christian Worship pg. 143 vs. 1-5)

This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
(Psalm 118:24)
