Do you BELIEVE JESUS CHRIST is RISEN from the dead?

“I BELIEVE in my heart that GOD raised him from the dead”.

The Apostle Paul said: “For if we have been planted together in the [LIKENESS OF HIS DEATH], we shall be also in the [LIKENESS OF HIS RESURRECTION]. Knowing that Christ being [RAISED FROM THE DEAD DIETH NO MORE]; death hath no more dominion over him” (Romans 6:5, 9).

“And being made perfect, he became the [AUTHOR OF ETERNAL SALVATION] unto all them that obey him” (Hebrews 5:9).

“But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; [THAT IF THOU SHALT CONFESS WITH THY MOUTH THE LORD JESUS, AND SHALT BELIEVE IN THINE HEART THAT GOD HATH RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, THOU SHALT BE SAVED]. For with [THE HEART MAN BELIEVETH UNTO RIGHTEOUSNESS]; and with [THE MOUTH CONFESSION IS MADE UNTO SALVATION]” (Romans 10:8-10).

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8) says: “I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. [BELIEVEST THOU THIS]?” (John 11:25-27).

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall [NEVER SEE DEATH]” (John 8:51).

“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).

JESUS IS OUR SALVATION – HAPPY EASTER!

“For [GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD, THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON], that [WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE]. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but [THAT THE WORLD THROUGH HIM MIGHT BE SAVED]. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:16-18).

“Therefore as by the offense of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life” (Romans 5:18).

“But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; [THAT IF THOU SHALT CONFESS WITH THY MOUTH THE LORD JESUS, AND SHALT BELIEVE IN THINE HEART THAT GOD HATH RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, THOU SHALT BE SAVED]. For with [THE HEART MAN BELIEVETH UNTO RIGHTEOUSNESS]; and with [THE MOUTH CONFESSION IS MADE UNTO SALVATION]” (Romans 10:8-10).

GOOD FRIDAY: JESUS’ VICTORY ON CALVARY (Luke 23:33)!

When Jesus was crucified along with two thieves, the prince of this world, the Devil or Satan thought that he won again, as he did with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. However, little did he know that it was all part of God’s perfect plan, because when Jesus chose his twelve disciples, he said, “Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil? He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve” (John 6:70–71).

God first chose the people of Israel for his inheritance and then sent his Son Jesus to all others “to open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in Jesus” (Acts 26:18).

Jesus’ death and resurrection was purposed by God to let the inhabitants of the earth know of the reward of eternal life for humankind, which was hidden since the time of creation. As Jesus said, “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me” (John 12:32).

The Devil believed that in putting Jesus to death, he would continue to have power over death. However, this was God’s plan to finally destroy death, with the promise of life through his only begotten Son. The word of God says:

“For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the Devil” (1 John 3:8–9).

Jesus expressed this fact to his disciples when he told them saying: “Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. [THIS COMMANDMENT HAVE I RECEIVED OF MY FATHER]” (John 10:17–18).

“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus: who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time” (1 Timothy 2:5–6).

“For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:3-4).

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8), “who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God; but made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men. [AND BEING FOUND IN FASHION AS A MAN, HE HUMBLED HIMSELF, AND BECAME OBEDIENT UNTO DEATH, EVEN THE DEATH OF THE CROSS]. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name. That at the [NAME OF JESUS] every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:5–11).

“For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven” (Psalm 119:89).

GOOD FRIDAY: JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS.

Every day of our lives when we drink a glass of water especially when we are thirsty, let us be reminded how much our Lord Jesus sacrificed for us on that day.

On the day our Lord Jesus was crucified, it was a very hot day. As he suffered in the heat assuredly he needed a drink of water; however, “They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink” (Matthew 27:34).

“And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour. 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?’ And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost. And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom. And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, ‘Truly this man was the Son of God”’ (Mark 15:33-34. 38-39).

Jesus was crucified along with two thieves. It was customary after a crucifixion to break the legs; however, “when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs; but, one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water” (John 19:33–34).

“And he that saw it bare record and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe” (John 19:35).

This record of blood and water which came out of the pierced side of Jesus is significant as spoken of by John when he asked, saying:
“Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth” (1 John 5:5–6).
“If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son. He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son” (1 John 5:9–10).

GOOD FRIDAY – PRECIOUS BLOOD OF CHRIST.

Many people are going about their daily lives, unfortunately, not taking the time to consider the magnitude of what the only begotten Son of God, Jesus Christ did for the human race thousands of years ago.

Today, we bring into remembrance Good Friday. During today we must take a moment in silence to pray to God in truth and spirit to give him thanks for given us his only begotten Son, in order that we may inherit the promise of eternal life (John 3:16-18, 12:32).

No amount of money on this earth can purchase salvation (Matthew 1:29).

Lamb And Cross

“Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, but with the [PRECIOUS BLOOD OF CHRIST], as of a lamb without blemish and without spot” (1 Peter 18–19).

GOOD FRIDAY.

Today is GOOD FRIDAY, and on this day we keep in remembrance the day JESUS CHRIST gave his life for the world.

At the beginning of time, God give light of life to the first man and woman, Adam and Eve. However, Adam and Eve did not believe the word of God: the truth; they believed instead a lie, and as a consequence all humans were condemned to death.
God gave life, but then came death. However, God then sent his only begotten Son Jesus, at the right time, in the fullness of time, to bring and to spread the word of life.

While he was here on earth, King Jesus told his disciples of this fact when he said, “Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father” (John 10:17–18).
