Suffering Servant! Part-Three.

Gaining the Victory?

When Jesus rose from the dead on the third day, as He said He would He gained the victory over death and for us entry into the New Life!

We have to be born-again to taste Eternity, religious observance, wearing a Christian name tag, doing good works bowing down or praying to saints will not get us to Heaven?

The confession of sins, repentance and faith in the death of Jesus on the cross and His rising from the dead lets us know that God has forgiven our past failures and we know are in Him.

Matthew 17:33,   Luke 18:33,   John 3:3,   31-36,   Acts 4:12,   1 Corinthians 15:57,   1 John 5:4.

EASTER. Part-Three.

Jesus Family.

The family of Jesus were around Him at the cross and the resurrection, along with followers, new believers and the witnesses of the resurrection.

Mary His earthly mother and many female followers were near and far at the stake/tree, while on that Easter Sunday moring they were all rushing to find the empy tomb.

Matthew 27:55-56, 61, 28:3-6,  Mark 15:40, 47, 16:1-9,   Luke 24:1-10,  John 19:25, 20:1-11, 16, 18.

Ascension. Part-Two.

Promised Holy Spirit.

Jesus had to leave, but He will return one day for all who have placed their faith and trust in Him. Jesus told his followers to go and wait in Jerusalem for the promised Holy Spirit to be poured out so that the believers could be empowered to serve God. Mark 16:19-20.

This they did and these tremendous events happened. Today the ‘Church/Ekklesia is the largest religious movement on the planet, but then it was a very small group of Jews and a couple of Gentiles. All followed the Jewish Messiah of Israel, which we continue to do today. Acts 2, Joel 2:28-32.

Without the power of the Holy spirit within the believer we are nothing and religion is an empty repeatable religious tradition. Good works and trying in our own estimation will not save us from eternal damnation, only faith and trust in Jesus’ death on the cross and resurrection from the dead will do that.
