JESUS IS ALIVE!
“But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 15:57
For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:21
Jesus Christ promised what no other religious leader could: He died, resurrected from the grave and also resurrect His followers from the grave.
Matthew 27:52-54 and tombs opened. The bodies of many godly men and women who had died were raised from the dead.
They left the cemetery after Jesus’ resurrection, went into the holy city of Jerusalem, and appeared to many people.
The Roman officer and the other soldiers at the crucifixion were terrified by the earthquake and all that had happened. They said, “This man truly was the Son of God!”
Men and Brethren, the day is fast approaching when Jesus will fulfil His promise completely ‘…In Christ all shall be made alive…. Each one in his own order: Christ the first-fruits, afterwards those who are Christ’s at His coming’ ( 1 Corinthians 15:22-23)
The Sadducees said ‘There is no Resurrection’ (Acts 23:8). They saw the grave as a one-way trip to Sheol with no escape and no hope. While the Pharisees envisioned a resurrection that was spiritual, not physical. The Greeks believed the soul of the deceased Ferried across the river Styx and released into a Sunless afterlife of Spirits, shades and Shadows. Then Jesus, ”….the first-fruits’ of them that slept’ (1 Cor 15:20) entered this world of superstition and darkness and Turned the Light of Hope and Assurance for Who trust in Him. Jesus Christ was the first of the Resurrection Assembly Line, and the Rest of us who believe and follow Jesus to the end will look like Him.
DISCOURAGED CHRISTIAN! Why are you Weeping? Why are you Crying over your own Corruption? Look to unto your Perfect Jesus, and remember that you are Complete in Him. (Colossians 2:10). You are in God’s sight as perfect as if you had never sinned; It’s even more than that, “The Lord Our righteousness has put a Divine Garment upon you that now you have the Righteousness of God.
O’ you who is mourning over you Inbred Sin and depravity, Remember, none of this sins can condemn you. (Romans 8:1). God no longer condemns you, so don’t condemn yourself. Who is He that condemneth? It is Christ what died, yea rather, that is risen again, Who is even art the right hand of God. Who also maketh intercession for us.
“CHRISTIAN, let your heart rejoice for you are accepted in the Beloved” you have nothing to fear. Let your ever wear a Smile; live in fellowship with you Master; live in the the Suburbs of the Celestial City; for soon, when the time shall come you shall rise up where Jesus sits, and reign at His right hand; a a all this is because the Divine Lord “was made to be sin for us. Who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.
It’s a message that Dries our Tears, Calms our Fears and assures us that Our Best Days are Yet to Come.
