Matthew 28:6 “…He is risen from the dead, just as He said would happen…”
Christ is risen!!!
Christ’s Resurrection – a reason for celebration!
Our Father, the creator of all, with the full power of resurrection, raised Jesus, our Christ, from the dead and this is a Victory He graciously gives all of us when we believe.
Knowing this, we can look at our worldly challenges in a new Light. Sure, we all have dreams of prosperity and pray for help to overcome illness, bias, oppression, debt, bad relationships, and more.
Each of us, at some time, feel the anxiety of “impossibility”. God knows all of this. He is not limited by anything and when you stand in faith:
He will open doors!
He will move you forward!
He will raise you to the top!
He will place you before others for His purpose!
He will give you a breakthrough!
He will bring the gifts He placed in you, out of you for all to see!
He will bring people across your path to help you!
Indeed, the One Who can and will raise us from the dead will give us, His Children, all of this!
Stand firm in faith! Hold on to the dreams God has placed in your heart!
Declare He will give you all of these things and more!
Romans 10:9 If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, YOU WILL BE SAVED!
Christ is risen by the resurrection power of God!
This is why Christ Jesus came into the world, to show you His power, to show you how much He loves you and to give you salvation and eternal life through your faith in Him, indeed through the power of His Holy Spirit who lives in you when you believe!
Romans 8:11 The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, He will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you.
Read, pray, and receive His Message:
Luke 24:46-47 And He said “Yes, it was written long ago that the Messiah would suffer and die and rise from the dead on the third day. It was also written that His Message would be proclaimed in the authority of His Name to all the nations: “There is forgiveness of sins for all who repent.”
Romans 4:24-25 …for our benefit, too, assuring us that God will also count us as righteous if we believe in Him, the One who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. He was handed over to die because of our sins, and He was raised to life to make us right with God.
Paul said in 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; I passed on to you (His Message) what was most important and what had also been passed on to me. Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said. He was buried, and He was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said.
1 Peter 1:3 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is by His great mercy that we have been born again because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now we live with great expectation!
1 Corinthians 15:21-22 So you see, just as death came into the world through a man, now the resurrection from the dead has begun through another man. Just as everyone dies, because we all belong to Adam, everyone who belongs to Christ Jesus WILL BE GIVEN A NEW LIFE!
Romans 6:5 Since we have been united with Him in His death, we will also be raised to life as He was.
Romans 6:9 We are sure of this because Christ was raised from the dead, and He will never die again. Death no longer has any power over Him.
John 11:25-26 Jesus told her, I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in Me will live, even after dying. Everyone who lives in Me and believes in Me will never ever die.
Romans 6:4 For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives.
1 Corinthians 6:14 God raised the Lord and will also raise us up by His power.
Yes, brothers and sisters, Jesus is alive today, because He is risen!!
By the Almighty power of God, and because He lives in us, we too shall rise!
Indeed, each of us live and die, but our Lord and Savior died and lives! His resurrection is a victory over death, and it is now not the end, but the passage into God’s holy presence! Live your lives knowing Christ lives and He lives in His people!
The cross is the Victory and Christ’s Resurrection is the triumph over death for all to see!
We believe in His Word, not that it clarifies His Resurrection, but that His Resurrection clarifies His Word!
Our Christian faith is His Resurrection – He is risen! Christ Lives!
We live because He Lives! A new life for each of us because of His Resurrection!
Amen, God’s plan!
Indeed, I will rise!
Pray now to God in thanks and praise!
Father God, thank You for Your resurrection power in me and in my life. Today, I surrender my quilt, disappointments, heartbreaks, failures, and setbacks, and know You have breathed Your Life into me, amen the Holy Spirit of Christ Jesus. I accept Your wonderful plan for me and know You will lead me into total victory!
Isaiah 25:8 He will swallow up death in Victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away the tears from all faces. In the Name of God our Father, our Christ and Lord Jesus, and His powerful Holy Spirit, Amen, and HALLELUIAH!
Happy Easter! ~Pastor Michael
