Easter. Two.

Resurrection.

Jesus achieved for us the victory over the sting of death, by His rising from the dead on the third day. Today many people believe in science, in what they think they are able to see?

Science is limited by the ideal of theory, but faith and Spirituality deal with the emotional side of the human nature. Science cannot solve pain, disappointment, anger, fear, love, joy and peace, these are conditions that can only be sorted out by God.

God asks each one of us to examine our condition to turn from the negative failures and to seek Him, by having faith in His Son Jesus.

Amos 5:4,  John 3:33-36, 2 Corinthians 6:2, Hebrews 7:7, 10:5-14, Revelation 22:14-15.

Forty-Days. Part-One.

From the resurrection to the Acension.

First Witnesses.

Soldiers had been placed at the tomb where Jesus was buried, the first to see the resurrection of Jesus was those soldiers guarding the tomb. Early in the morning a Angel came down from Heaven and rolled that massive stone away.

The soldiers took fright seeing the bright light and what was happening they froze on the spot and later fled into Jerusalem to report these tremendous events.

Matthew 28:2-4, 1 Peter 1:12.

He has Arisen. Part-One.

Leadership.

On the third day, as he had promised Jesus arose from the dead. He had conqured death and this is how we who have faith are set free from the curse that death is.

Matthew 17:22, Mark 9:30-31, Luke 24:6-7.

We tend to sometimes overlook the account of Peter thinking that this was just his restoration to be forgiven and continue in following, but this has more to do with leadership qualities.

Being a Christian, means that we may be asked to take on some responsibility in our fellowship, from making the tea, to teaching in the Sunday school, youth work or just visiting the older folks.

John 21:15-17.

Resurrection. Part-One.

Peter said ‘The Lord has really risen! Luke 24:34.

The resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Jewish Messiah and the one and only Son of God is the most prolific event in human history. Matthew 28:2-15, Mark 16:1-11, Luke 24:1-12 and John 20:1-18. When Jesus arose from the dead, he did not have another body, it was the same one. The scars and the marks of torture and being nailed to the cross will remain on Him for ever. John 20:26-29, Revelation 1:7. Despite the lies being told ‘that he had not risen,’ there were so many people who claimed that they had seen him.
