But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. Romans 8:11
Just as Jesus prophesied he was killed and raised from the dead after 3 days, but why would the Son of God allow himself to taste death? Because he died so you didn’t have to die, he took our place. When you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior you will be filled with the Spirit of God that has the same resurrection power that rose Christ from the dead
For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son gives life to whom he is pleased to give it. John 5:21
All power and authority of Heaven and Earth have been giving to Jesus, he is the Resurrection, he is the living water that brings the dead back to life. See we worship the God of the Living not the dead, just as the angels said to Mary at the tomb, why do you look for the living among the dead?
Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: John 11:25
Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead after 4 days, by human logic this seems impossible but with God all things are possible. Jesus promised all who believe in him shall live, so who are you worshipping?
I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. Revelation 1:18
The Son of Man died and The Son of God was resurrected, Jesus lives for evermore. And he is the gatekeeper of Heaven and Hell. The King of Kings will rule with a rod of iron, worthy is the Lamb of God to be praised. Is your name in the book of life? Ask Jesus into your heart and you will be resurrected also in Jesus Name Amen
And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them. But their eyes were holden that they should not know him. Luke 24:15-16
Jesus walked right along with his disciples and they didn’t even recognize him. How can this be? Could it be that they stopped seeking God and closed their eyes? How many times in our lives do you think Jesus was walking with us also and we didn’t even recognize him?
Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? Luke 24:25-26
The disciples felt defeated, after witnessing Jesus crucifixion they doubted he was the Messiah, even after all the miracles and prophecies he showed them. So Jesus had to rebuke them and teach them the scriptures which revealed the Messiah had to suffer and die to pay for our sins. Could you be doubting because you simply don’t understand the scriptures also?
And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them. And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight. Luke 24:30-31
The disciples still didn’t recognize Jesus all this time until he blessed and broke the bread, just like he did at the Last Supper. As soon as they realized it was him he vanished, Jesus wanted to give them a clear sign that only they would recognize, is God sending you signs also?
And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures? Luke 24:32
Even though the disciples didn’t know it was Jesus they felt the Spirit burning in there hearts. Remember you are a temple of God and the Holy Spirit dwells in you. Also be on the lookout for signs and wonders because you never know when Jesus is walking by your side Amen
And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted. Matthew 28:17
Even after all Jesus had showed and done for the disciples, some still doubted. Jesus performed miracles before there eyes, including raising Lazarus from the dead. Jesus died for our sins and rose from the grave after 3 days, but yet they still doubted. What is it going to take for some to believe?
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Matthew 28:18
Just as Jesus prophesied, he will be sitting at the right hand of God, all power has been given to our Lord Jesus Christ. The King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Demons tremble at the sound of his name, once you understand this, you understand the Prince of Peace
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Matthew 28:19
Before Jesus ascended he commanded us to teach all the nations. With the technology age we live in with Social Media, ect there is no excuse why we cant fulfill this commandment. If every Christian would flood the Internet with the Word of God, we would see a revival
teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:20
Take comfort in know Jesus said he will be with us always, even during the last days. Turn on the news and its hard to imagine society could degrade any further, I believe these are the last days and Jesus is with us. Keep your lamps lit and get ready because the King is coming again soon in Jesus Name Amen
For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. 1 Corinthians 1:18
Why do I continually preach the gospel because Jesus is the only way to eternal life, there is no other way. Anyone who rejects Christ will perish, plain and simple. Why? Because Jesus is the only one worthy of taking your sins as a atoning sacrifice. Nobody else is worthy to open the book of Life, nobody else has the keys to Heaven and Hell, nobody else was able to be crucified and raised from the dead.
For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. 1 Corinthians 1:19
People want to disclaim a virgin birth is not possible, they don’t understand how Christ could have been risen from the dead, our God is an awesome God, the make of the Heavens and The Earth, his ways are higher than our ways, humble yourself before The Lord because he resists the proud
Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? 1 Corinthians 1:20
Man believes they know everything, they convince themselves we randomly were created and grew from monkeys, get over yourselves. The more man talks the more foolish we sound, know you are a Child of The Living God, who breathed a soul into your flesh and bone.
For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. 1 Corinthians 1:21
Anyone who calls upon the Lord, shall be saved. By the blood of Jesus he has made a new covenant and made all things new! Jesus is the power of the living God, Word became Flesh in Jesus Name AMen
He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. Luke 24:6-7
Jesus told his disciples he would rise after 3 days and he did! What a glorious day Jesus has conquered the grave! The important question is do you believe? Do you believe in your heart and soul Jesus has overcome the world? As Paul said without the resurrection there is no Christianity, we worship a God of the living and not the dead
And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him. Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me. Matthew 28:9-10
Even though Jesus was standing in front of his disciples they didn’t even recognize him, why? Because he in no longer the Son of Man but the Son of God. His body has been resurrected and perfected. Jesus is the King of Kings and will sit on the throne forever. Gods kingdom shall have no end
Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie, And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself. John 20:6-7
Jesus left Peter an important sign in the tomb, the napkin used on his head was folded. This is a Jewish custom, when you leave the dinner table but are coming back, you fold your napkin to let everyone know. Jesus gave us a sign, He is coming back.
The king is coming again, just like when he rode thru Jerusalem, he will descend from Heaven and every eye shall see him The Day of The Lord is coming soon in Jesus Name Amen
And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Mark 15:34
We have to remember Jesus was fully human during this crucifixion, so he endured immense pain and suffering for all of us. He tasted death so we don’t have to. So with this statement by Jesus, it should help us understand the sacrifice he truly endured for all of us
And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst. Luke 23:45
The veil was torn, the new covenant is now established by the blood of Jesus Christ. We are now Children of God by the grace of Jesus. No longer are we separated from God because of sin, we are now in his presence because we have been redeemed by the blood of Christ.
And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost. Luke 23:46
Notice Jesus said a few things before he passed away, his first statement we can see is preparing for his resurrection. As God will raise Jesus from the dead after 3 days and he will reign forever. Jesus became the Son of Man so he could save all of Mankind, now he will reign forever as the King of Kings
When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. John 19:30
The second statement “It Is Finshed” meaning Jesus has established the new covenant with God. Jesus has defeated death, he has defeated sin, and most importantly he has defeated Satan forever. We are no longer slaves to sin but we are now Children of God because IT IS FINISHED, worthy is The Lamb of God in Jesus Name Amen
Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye? John 18:4
Jesus knew the time had come, the time for him to fulfill Gods will and take on the debt of sin for all mankind. Jesus wants to know Whom see ye? Or Who seeks me? Are you seeking Jesus to be your Lord and Savior? Or are you seeking to kill Jesus just like the world thought they had done?
They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them. As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground. John 18:5-6
Notice as soon as Jesus identified himself as I AM, they all fell to the ground, why? Because they knew in there hearts he is The Great I AM, the Son of the Living God, however Jesus gave himself up as a ransom for the world
Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way: That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, Of them which thou gavest me have I lost none. John 18:7-9
Jesus knew he was the only one, the only one worthy to be called the Lamb of God, that had to be sacrificed to save us all from sin and death. Jesus did his part, now are you seeking him? Do you really know Jesus Christ? Is he your personal Lord and Savior? Whom Seek Ye in Jesus Name Amen
