April 2020 Festivals for you to celebrate at home with Immanuel Lutheran Church (LCMS) in Lima, Ohio

Lenten Greetings and Happy Easter! Since I decided to only have this website and shutdown ohiobookmart.com, I decided to make ads for Immanuel Lutheran Church (LCMS), where I'm an active member, as blog posts. Once you've read this blog post, please feel free to read the other blog posts and to visit the other pages. About: Immanuel Lutheran Church (LCMS) is a conservative and Confessional Lutheran congregation in The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS).

Palm Sunday

Happy Palm Sunday! Palm Sunday Reflections: Lent 2020 is almost over! On Palm Sunday, we celebrate Jesus' Triumphant Entry into Jerusalem and we kick off Holy Week. Jesus rode into Jerusalem on that fateful day to liberate every single person from death, Hell, Satan, Satan's demons, Original Sin from Adam and Eve, and their own personal sins. Jesus wants to save everyone and He wants to save you. Glory to Yahweh, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit for the Free Gift of Salvation, which Jesus won on the True Cross at Calvary and which Yahweh, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit freely give in the waters of Holy Baptism. This Holy Week, we shall be looking at Maundy Thursday and Good Friday....

Fifth Week of Lent

Lenten Greetings and Happy Easter! Let us read first read the Holy Gospel of Saint Matthew Chapter 20: "20:1 'For the Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a man, that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard. 2 And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard. 3 And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace, 4 And said unto them; 'Go ye also into the vineyard, and, whatsoever is right, I will give you.' And they went their way. 5 Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise. 6 And about the eleventh hour he went out,...

Is Easter Cancelled?

Lenten Greetings and Happy Easter! Cancelling Easter Reflections: There is a nasty rumor going around Lima, Ohio and perhaps even other parts of the world, that President Donald Trump (R) has cancelled Easter in 2020 due to the Corona Virus. Well I am going to squash that rumor right now! Donald Trump did NOT cancel Easter in 2020! First of all Donald Trump is not that powerful. Trump cannot stop the anniversary of a literal historical event from the Life of Jesus. Jesus literally died on Good Friday and He literally rose again from the dead. Jesus is alive and all of the baptized and believing Christians will see Him face-to-face in Heaven someday and they see Him each time,...

Forth Week of Lent and Annunciation

Lenten Greetings! Fourth Week of Lent Reflections: For the Fourth Week of Lent, let us focus on sin, confession, and walking with Yahweh, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit during these penitential days of Lent. We are all sinners, I am a sinner, you are a sinner, and every single person on the planet is a sinner. Jesus came to die for every single sinner; every single person. On Good Friday, we shall weep for our sins and we shall observe the annual Fasting Day, which we call Good Friday. We call Good Friday Good Friday, because Jesus atoned for the sins over single person and He objectively justified every single person. As we have looked at in at least two blog posts...
