The GREAT escape artist

I was thinking the other day about Houdini. He was considered a great escape artist and even had some thoughts on returning from the dead, mostly that it couldn’t be done but he was sure gonna try.
What I remembered was how my 2nd grade teacher must have had an ax to grind with him because around Halloween each year she did her best to expose how Houdini was able to make his escapes. Whether any of her facts were true or not I can’t say, I mainly remember her talking about well placed secret keys. However it all goes, Houdini did not escape his final trap. Death comes for all. In fact the Bible tells us in Hebrews 9:27 “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment”. Even those individuals that the Bible tells us were raised from the dead had to die again, all but One that is.
On the third day of being in the borrowed tomb, the first day of the week, Resurrection Sunday, later to be called Easter Jesus rose from the grave and did not die again!! He conquered death so that one day all who accept Him as their saviour will live forever in Heaven. We might still have to die physically but eternal death in the Hell we so richly deserve has been by passed by The Great Escape Artist Jesus Christ.
