About Me

Hey there, I'm Sunny Shell, a wretch saved by God's grace through faith in Jesus Christ the Lord. I'm married to the most incredible man on earth, who loves Jesus more than he loves me, and we have two precious adult sons.

The compassionately endures me through my metabolic disease (since 2004) that enables me to be more prayerful and careful about commitments I make and helps me to make the best use of my short time here on earth.

Easter: The truth about life, death and The Resurrection


Is there life after death? Are we reincarnated and come back as something else depending on the kind of life we previously lived? Can the dead rise back to life? Is there really a Heaven and Hell?

The answers are: yes, there is life after death; no,  reincarnation isn't real; and yes, when a person dies, they will be resurrected either to eternal life in Heaven with God, or eternal damnation in Hell with Satan and his demons (John 5:28-29).

Two days ago, we rejoiced in the reason why Good Friday is so good—because, once and for all, the penalty for sin was paid in full for those who by faith, repent and trust their lives to Jesus (Hebrews 10:10).

Yesterday, as Christians, we celebrated the Passover, testifying we have been passed over from death to life through the sacrifice of the last and perfect Lamb, Jesus Christ, whose blood alone is able to cleanse our sins (John 1:29).

Today, we rejoice that Jesus Christ is risen! The grave that could not hold our Savior, cannot hold us. The power of sin and Satan were defeated so that sinners whom Christ came to save would be guaranteed eternal life in Him.

Many will celebrate today with chocolate, bunnies, Easter eggs, new dresses and hats, forgetting the weightier matter: Christ is risen! And without the suffering, death and resurrection of the Son of God, none of us could have the hope of eternal life.

This life and all that’s in it, is not greater than the next. No, it’s only a shadow of what’s to come after we leave this earth and these bodies. It’s only a glimpse of what we have to look forward to for all eternity. So get ready and be prepared for Jesus’ second coming by putting your hope and trust in Christ alone. Let today be the day of your salvation (2 Cor 6:2), for when He comes again, it will not be as His first coming, as the Lamb of God, no His second coming will be as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah (1 Thess 4:16-17; Hebrews 9:27-28).

Are you ready? If you're not sure, read this article, "Heaven or Hell?" and/or click this link: Need God.

“For if we have been united with Him [Christ] in a death like His, we shall certainly be united with Him in a resurrection like His. We know that our old self was crucified with Him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. For one who has died has been set free from sin. Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with Him. We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over Him. For the death He died He died to sin, once for all, but the life He lives He lives to God. So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus."
~Romans 6:5-11
