Pictures With A Message


Triumph over the Grave Through Jesus Christ

In the Spring of 2000 I had been asking the Lord to show me what kind of picture I should produce for an outreach to the Isle of Man motorcycle races with Christian Motorcyclists Association, later after reading "Our Daily Bread" Bible notes, there was a theme for April 15th of that year called - "Triumph over the grave" ....as an ex-biker when I read this I couldn't help but think of a Triumph motorcycle and what kind of picture this would make, I eventualy turned it into the picture you see here.

There is a tombstone in the picture with the inscription - "To put your fears to rest, put your faith in Christ" and the Grim Reaper is getting a big fright - "Yikes! I hate it when they jump out like that!!" .....as the Christian biker roars past out of the grave, waving the banner of Jesus Christ.

Triumph, make wonderful motorcycles - but like all things of this earth they will pass away, but there is one "Triumph" which will last for eternity and it's one we would all do well to own - it is the one Jesus Christ made when He triumphed over Death and Hell when He rose from the dead, all who truly believe in Him will experience what He said in John 11:25 "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies" It's a promise and a triumph for everyone who believes in Him.
The picture was completed while on the streets of Douglas the main town of the island - It was interesting to see the response of bikers and people walking by who saw the picture. It is hoped and prayed many seeds have been sown in the hearts of folk, who would ponder the message and it's meaning....Triumph over the grave through Jesus Christ.
