Resurrection Power.

Rising with Jesus.

it is said that not many ‘Christians today believe that Jesus actually rose from the dead, but if He did not then we cannot claim a faith-trust in Him and thus we have no promise of eternal salvation?

Jesus did rise and was seen by over 500 people, apart from His Disciples over the forty-day period until His Ascension back to Heaven! Baptism allows us the example of Jesus rising from the grave, but child baptism has no power because we are not at that time conscience of our sins?

It is only later on when we develop that we start to see our failures and if we repent and turn to God, believers baptism will be of great value to both us and all who witness our conversion-born again transformation!

John 11:25,  Acts 1:22,  4:37,   Romans 6:5, 1 Corinthians 15:12-13,  1 Peter 1:3.

Denial?

There are so many people in the world who deny history and God, they want so much to have everything fit their way and they also try at times desperately to hide their failing from near and far?

This is the true side of human nature, it has ben with humanity since the fall of Eve and Adam! But when we face the truth, we are on the road to being healed of the deception we are in and on the way to finding a New Life with Jesus as the Lord of our lives?

Joshua 24:27,   Matthew 10:33,   John 3:14-17,   Titus 1:16.

Jesus, witness the Truth. Two.

Hearing and accepting the Truth.

We may like to go to Church, to be religious, to keep the traditions and believe that going through the ritualism and occasional ‘Good Deeds is enough to be on the right side of God?

But the revelation of who Jesus was and His role of being born into human flesh were born by Pilate a few hours before the Jesus victory at the cross and His resurrection from the dead!

One has to hear the message of repentance, accept ones failure and turn to God! From this point not going back into the same sins again and again to make a mockery of the blood of Jesus who did once for the atonement of our sins?

John 18:37,   Mark 1:14,  Isaiah 9:6,   53:4-7,  Hebrews chapter 7 and 10,   1 John 1:9

For God so loved…His. Two.

A New start for Us?

God gave us His one and only Son Jesus to take our places in the redemption of sins. God has chosen us for Eternal life, not because we deserve it from anything that we have done, but rather from His mercy on our failures.

Many people make quick choices in relation to becoming Christians, others think that by being good and living a right way in their own eyes they will get into Heaven? But this not the case, as with the man in wrong clothes at the wedding supper found out.

We all have to bow in admission of our failure to Jesus, asking His forgiveness and mercy on us and promising to have a mental change of attitudes not continuing or returning to what we were.

1 Peter 3:18.

Easter Story. Part-Three.

The Cross.

There were a lot of events occurring while Jesus was nailed on the cross that day. People stood watching, while others jeered at Him. Two criminals who deserved their punishment were also there. Jesus had to die for our sins, this was a once for all shedding of blood. This was the final and ultimate atonement for sins, it was for all who believed in his death and resurrection. Isaiah 53:12, Mark 15:27, Matthew 27:38, John 19:18, Luke 23:32-43.

Good Works.

There is nothing wrong in doing good, but doing the right things and good works will not tally up your points with God to get into His good books or to heaven.  You have to confess that Jesus is the Messiah, that he died on the cross, taking your sins upon his body, rose on the third day and in returning at the end of the age to receive all the believers. 2 Corinthians 7:10.  When we say we are Christians, God expects us to apply what we know of Him. James 1:22.
