The power of resurrection.

We know that without the resurrection, everything that has been done is futile. But the resurrection did happen so:…

What power does it actually have?

Let’s check that out.

Genesis 2:17 “but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die.”

Well as we know we DID eat from the tree of life. So that means we are going to die at some point. HOWEVER, our Lord Jesus Christ came along. Praise YAHWEH!

1 Cor 6:14 “By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also.”

We will live! Praise YAHWEH! (Ezekiel 37)

Please put your two sense in, because I’m also coming in question. Am I missing anything else?

What do YOU think?

    1 Corinthians 15:3-19
    All of these verses speak about the resurrection of Jesus Christ. All of Christianity hinges on the fact of resurrection. All of 1 Corinthians 15 is a good chapter on this topic. But I really want to highlight these verses:

    1 Corinthians 15:12-19 NKJV
    12 Now if Christ is preached that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ is not risen. 14 And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty. 15 Yes, and we are found false witnesses of God, because we have testified of God that He raised up Christ, whom He did not raise up—if in fact the dead do not rise. 16 For if the dead do not rise, then Christ is not risen. 17 And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins! 18 Then also those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. 19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable.

    Think about it. A lot of the promises we have in the Bible, for example, the book of Romans, is based on this event, that Jesus rose.
    (Romans 10:9, Romans 6, Romans 8:11) These and many more promises, in fact the whole NT, is proven untrue if Christ did not raise from the dead. But if Christ did raise from the dead (and He did) then everything else is true, including God’s promises to give us a new life and victory over sin. And everything Jesus said about His return and the Kingdom of Heaven.

    There is no sufficient way to explain the rise of Christianity except the resurrection. There is just no way around it. All the other theories (and I’ve looked into them many times) either ignore evidence or fail to explain certain things. Summed up the theories basically boils down to this: the supernatural doesn’t happen because the supernatural doesn’t happen, which frankly is lazy (and circular) thinking. If someone is predisposed to not believe in the supernatural (naturalists, materialist) than the idea of the resurrection is out of the question, that is why one has to ‘think of something else’ to explain the seemingly unexplainable rise of Christianity, its zeal, its martyrs, eyewitnesses, the empty tomb, etc.

    I am not hearing many churches talk about the resurrection. They do talk about it in a spiritual symbolic way, but as an event? Not really. We should not be ashamed of the gospel. The resurrection and its significance in our lives is of the utmost importance.1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

  2. Hi Josh

    If I may add my two bits.

    With what happend in the Garden of Eden through disobedience we ‘will surely die’. Death means seperation. Soul and spirit being separated from the body, is the physical death. But the death penalty here was spiritual death which is the separation of our spirit from God. The remittance of sin is through sacrifice and this was used throughout scripture but until Jesus became ‘the one and only everlasting sacrifice’ it never was (I think) good enough to God.
    I hope this makes sense, that’s my two bits.
    Thank you Jesus!

    Beloved you are sharp, and that’s good.
    If they had eaten of the tree of life it would over for us, this being an everlasting separation from God – for life.

    Jesus loves you

  3. Hi Josh,
    I believe you meant to say “well as you know we did eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil” ( not the tree of life,praise God,or we’d live forever in a fallen state) 🙂
