History of Easter Celebrations | Why Easter Celebrated | Significance

Easter 2014, Happy Easter History, Easter, Greetings Quotes

Easter is of great importance for the Christians around the world as it marks the re birth of Jesus Christ.

Easter 2014 is celebrated around the globe to observe the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after his crucifixion, on the first Sunday after the full moon that occurs upon or next after the Spring Equinox. Before easter forty days of Lent are observed, a period of prayer and self-denial for Christians. The period of Lent includes Holy Week, the week immediately preceding Easter Sunday.

Easter 2014 History
The Blessings of Jesus Christ
For the Christian Bible Believers (especially in the New Testament) Easter is essential. Christian Bible Believers, by Faith, believe that Jesus rose from the dead three days after his death by crucifixion on the cross, as mentioned in Matthew 27 verses 1-50 and 1 Corinthians 15 verses 1-8 in the New Testament of the Bible. Faith is explained in Hebrews Chapter 11 verses 1- 40 in the Christian Bible.
For some Christians (such as the Pentecostals or Apostolic Believers) the death of Christ represents repentance from sins (or from breaking the Commandments of God as mentioned in Exodus Chapter 20 verses 1-20). So when a prospective believer repents, he or she becomes dead to sin as part of the process. When the individual is baptized by water (immersed in water) the person is buried and when the Holy Spirit is received, the resurrection of the person takes place. The last part (resurrection by receiving the Holy Spirit) is considered the most important because it indicates tahe completion of the process, as was the case with Christ.

Faith, belief and accepting the above (death, burial and resurrection) completely is very essential to Christians for two main reasons.

Firstly, Christians by faith live their entire lives according to and in agreement with the Bible Commandments and Teachings from the Old to the New Testament. In their daily lives, the Believers will expect and receive the provisions of basic needs, guidance from evil or law breakers in the societies in which they live, protection from unwelcome dangers or harms, healing of the body and mind, miracles, and such alike.

The second has to do with Eternal Life from God. This is the most important reward for Christian Believers. They all do what the Bible says until their deaths so they will receive their rewards in Heaven.
Thus the significance of the Principle of Easter (death, burial and resurrection) becomes critical to a Believer and Eternal Life. And eternal life is granted to those who keep or obey God's Commandments all the days of his/her life until natural death from life.

Therefore, in ending, Easter has great significance to Christian Bible Believers in the world. A Christian is usually someone who believes in God, the Bible, has repented from sins, is baptized by water and received the Holy Spirit from God. Christians thus see Easter not only as a festival but as a symbol of everything the Bible teaches them. Everything that connects them to Christianity, Bible and Jesus is signified through the Easter celebrations.
