The Importance Of The Resurrection

 (1Cor. 15:49) “And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.” So, what is so important about the resurrection of Jesus Christ? 1) It is important to the dead. In that after death man now knows that because Jesus lives, he too can live again forever. In the above verse God’s promise to the saved is that after death he/she will have a new image or (bodily form) in heaven that is heavenly. Since our earthly bodies are cursed because of sin they must die, remain here, and wait until Jesus Christ returns to be resurrected (15:23). At which time our bodies will be raised from the dust incorruptible and made like the glorious body of Jesus Christ (Php.3:21). But now after death man is given a temporary body fashioned by God that pretty much looks and functions like our old earthly body, no matter if he goes to heaven or Hell. Moses and Elijah were clearly distinguishable on the mount of transfiguration, and in (Luke 16) Abraham, Lazarus, as well as the rich man in Hell all had bodies that looked like them; able to feel, see, and hear, even though they had not been resurrected yet. 2) It is important to the living. Because of the resurrection we know that salvation is found only in Jesus Christ; for he died, and came back from being dead of his own power, proving to all mankind that he and he only has power over life and death, but it also is important because now we know that he was and is indeed truly God’s Son in the flesh!

Salvation Is Through Christ Alone

(Rom. 14:11-12) “For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.” One day all men will stand in judgment before God, but there will be a special “great white throne judgment”(Rev. 20:11-15) set aside for the unsaved where God himself will explain to the unsaved that salvation apart from trusting in Jesus Christ is impossible. Different types of arguments and excuses will be given there: 1) Arguments by the Heathen Man . He believes that because he has never heard of Jesus he has an excuse, but God will show him that he once had the truth but rejected it. For all men came off  Noah’s Ark, unfortunately those that forsook God damned the next generations to follow by replacing God with the idols and the lies of men. So, no matter where man is found on earth he is guilty of rejecting God’s way of salvation for his own. That’s why Missions is so important today, fo…

Justified By Faith Alone

(Rom. 3:23) "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God."Have you ever asked yourself what this verse means? Well it means that if you are a human being no matter how good or righteous you are, because of your sin, your righteousness and glory can never equal or be good enough to get you into heaven. Why, because you fall short of the standard that God has set up, and that standard is the righteousness and glory of Jesus Christ. In the Old Testament, God gave the world the ten commandments not to save, but to explain to us why and how it is that we fall short. (3:20) "Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin." And that is why God sent Jesus, for man from birth is under the condemnation or judgment of God. We therefore need God's help to cover our sin to stand righteous before God.Therefore, to be justified and free from the condemnation for  sin, God sent Jesus to di…
