What is the why of His resurrection? Wasn’t just dying enough? Why didn’t He just die and stay in the grave? It wouldn’t have been good enough. Our Master only died for 3 days and His resurrection was an important part to pay for our redemption.
Three reasons for Christ’s resurrection.
1. His resurrection finished the work of redemption. Redemption was not complete at the cross. It was voidable if He didn’t rise from the dead. -1 Corinthians 15:17.
Christ went to death, hell and the grave to conquer them. His return provided us the guarantee that they have no power over us.
The same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead, lives in you. Christ lives in you. His resurrection validates and ratifies your salvation.
2. Established His authority in all dimensions.
He resurrected so that He could have a channel to release His Spirit unto us, through which He could transfer that same authority and power to us!
The devil only harms you, using your ignorance as his weapon. He lost his grip on you a long time ago. Blow him away and he will fall apart!
3. His resurrection guaranteed that all who are in Christ will also have the resurrection in time and eternity.
Christ, the Captain of our salvation was made perfect through testing and suffering so that we know that if Christ could survived everything He went through then so can we too.
Jesus, the Risen Lord, who came through Nazareth, is the Answer!
You are made in the exact image and prototype of Christ.
As God is in Heaven so are you in this world! If you aren’t operating in your full capacity in Christ, that’s on you and your ignorance!
Some of you are dealing with hopelessness, battling with depression, suicide and all its antecedents problem but because Christ lives inside of you, you are coming out of that trouble, never to return to it.
