Resurrection


Resurrection


The Scripture affirms that Jesus Christ was resurrected from the dead. It's in the Bible, Matthew 28:5-6, NKJV.  "But the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.'"
The resurrection happened exactly as the prophets said it would. It's in the Bible, I Corinthians 15:3-4, TLB. "I passed on to you right from the first what had been told to me, that Christ died for our sins just as the Scriptures said He would, and that He was buried, and that three days afterwards He arose from the grave just as the prophets foretold."
The resurrection of Jesus is the central truth of the Christian faith. It's in the Bible, I Corinthians 15:14-17, NIV. "And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith. More than that, we are then found to be false witnesses about God, for we have testified about God that He raised Christ from the dead… . And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins."
What does the Bible teach about our resurrection from death? Our resurrection is certain because of Christ's resurrection. It's in the Bible, I Corinthians 15:12-14, NIV. "But if it is preached that Christ has been raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith."
Our resurrected bodies will be different than our present ones and they will be eternal. It's in the Bible, I Corinthians 15:51-53, TLB. "But I am telling you this strange and wonderful secret: we shall not all die, but we shall all be given new bodies! It will all happen in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For there will be a trumpet blast from the sky, and all the Christians who have died will suddenly become alive, with new bodies that will never, never die; and then we who are still alive shall suddenly have new bodies too. For our earthly bodies, the ones we have now that can die, must be transformed into heavenly bodies that cannot perish but will live forever."
Because of Christ resurrection, He has the power to resurrect dead relationships and those who are spiritually dead. It's in the Bible, Philippians 3:10 NIV. "I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in His sufferings, becoming like Him in His death." Ephesians 2:1,4,5, NIV says, "As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins…But because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved."
We can be sure of victory in all things, because of Christ's victory over sin and death in His resurrection. It's in the Bible, 1 Corinthians 15:55-58, NKJV. “ O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?” The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord "
