What if Jesus Would have Said…

John 11:25  “Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life.  He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live’.”  Tomorrow we celebrate LIFE!   Tomorrow we celebrate RESURRECTION LIFE!  The true meaning of what the world refers to as Easter Sunday…we call Resurrection Sunday. It is all about when that which was DEAD came to life again. 

While we know that Jesus died on the Cross for our sins by defeating death and rising on the 3rd day,

BUT … What if JESUS would have said:   “NEVER MIND, YOU’RE NOT WORTH IT?”

Romans 3:10 reads:  “There is none righteous….no not one!”   Then Romans 6:23 continues on by saying,  “For the wages of sin is death.” 

BUT … What if JESUS would have said:  “NEVER MIND, YOU’RE NOT WORTH IT?”

Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.”  Even Isaiah in the O.T. had words to say about this as written in Isaiah 64:6: “But we are all like an unclean thing, and all our righteousness are like filthy rags, we all fade as a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind have taken us away.” 

OH BUT FOR THE GRACE OF GOD!

Your faith today does not look to the FUTURE for its fulfillment; rather, it stands on the SOLID GROUND of Christ’s Resurrection and declares with Jesus Christ ‘IT IS FINISHED’!

Covid 19 nor any other pestilence, plague or crisis can ever get in the way to deny you ‘Resurrected’ benefits!

With what Jesus accomplished on the Cross for you and me … there is nothing to be added, every ‘benefit’ is ours!  Nothing is left undone … all that is required for us is to believe in the finished work and enter into the benefits.  Had Jesus not RAISED from the dead … Satan’s authority and dominion in the earth and over the souls of men would have remained in force.  Everything about Jesus had the SIGN of Resurrection about it.

When He RAISED up Jairus daughter; that was a SIGN pointing to His Resurrection!

When He HEALED the man with the withered hand that was a SIGN pointing to His Resurrection!

When He DELIVERED the demoniac; that was a SIGN pointing to His Resurrection!

When He OPENED the eyes of the blind, caused deaf ears to hear, that was a SIGN pointing to His Resurrection!

The VERY FOUNDATION of the Christian faith is the Resurrection.  Read Paul’s words in 1 Cor. 15:12-20.  Col. 1:15 “And having spoiled principalities and powers, He made a show of them openly triumphing over them in it.”  However, Jesus clearly spoke in His own words what is recorded in John 10:10, “I have come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly.”  John 11:25-26  “Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life.  He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.  And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die.”  John 14:19  “Because I live … you shall live also!”  I do not know what the devil might be shouting at you, or what tenuous circumstances this may find you in during a very distinctive March & April of 2020, but I do know this:

The One Word From GOD Settles The Matter … And That Word Is RESURRECTION! 

Living in the presence of Jesus…in ‘the power of His Resurrection’ means we are those who live in hope and victory!  His living presence through the Holy Spirit in this world means we are not people who live in despair…BUT people who live in hope.  Hope that through His presence….His power….in our lives God can make winners out of losers!

RESURRECTION makes THE difference!

Blessings, Psalm 20:7 Dale & Jeannie
