Resurrection! The Secret of Jesus

Resurrection of Jesus Christ was a supernatural event which completed the hopeful salvation and enjoyment of eternity for every believer. His process of resurrection was incomprehensible and non-scientific.

The enemies of the true gospel found it difficult to believe the resurrection of Jesus Christ. So, they bribed the soldiers to spread the false news.

Matthew chapter 28 verses 11 to 15 says: “Now while they were going, behold, some of the guard came into the city and reported to the chief priests all the things that had happened. When they had assembled with the elders and consulted together, they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers, saying, ‘Tell them, ‘His disciples came at night and stole Him away while we slept.’ “And if this comes to the governor’s ears, we will appease him and make you secure.” So they took the money and did as they were instructed; and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.”

Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit that led to the spiritual separation (dead) from God. Genesis chapter 2 verse 16 and 17 says: “And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; “but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.””

But the resurrection of Jesus Christ was God’s plan to redeem us from death. First Corinthians chapter 15 verse 21 and 22 says: “For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive.”

Is the Resurrection of Jesus a True Event?

During my courtship with my wife I promised to take good care of her and never to hit her at the hottest argument. She had more confidence in me when my promise is fulfilled in the marriage.

Similarly, Jesus predicted His resurrection (which had never happened in the history of man) to the disciples before the crucifixion. Matthew chapter 16 verse 21 says: “From that time Jesus began to show to His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised the third day.”

The disciples had more confidence in Jesus Christ when they saw the empty tomb. They saw Jesus Christ after His resurrection. It was real!! And the resurrection of Jesus gave the disciples the boldness to preach. Act chapter 4 verse 33 says: “And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all.”

If it wasn’t real, Stephen would not be ready to lay down his life for preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Acts 7:51-60).

The Power of Resurrection

If Jesus did not rise from the death, then the salvation of our souls from the power of death is impossible. Devil taught that the crucifixion of Jesus Christ on the cross would defeat the salvation of humanity but shockingly, the power of death could not stop the Saviour!

When Jesus Christ got to the kingdom of death, there was a great over-thrown of power. Jesus withdrew the power from death through the authority of the Almighty LORD. So, He rose from the grave because death cannot conquer Him. The sting of Death and the victory of Hades are with Jesus! Hallelujah!!

Hebrew chapter 2 verses 14 and 15 says: “Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.”

Everyone who believes in the resurrection of Jesus Christ will also enjoy the resurrection to heaven.

Paul explained this topic through the Spirit of the Lord in 1 Corinthians chapter 15 verse 51 to 57: “Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed… So when this corruptible has put on incorruptible, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.” “O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?”… But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

The Grace in Resurrection

The plan of God is to reconcile everyone to Himself. He wants us to gain heaven and not to lose our souls to hell. Thus, everyone must tap into the grace of the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The prophecy of God’s grace to save us from the bondage of death can be seen in the book of Isaiah chapter 25 verse 8 and 9: “He will swallow up death forever, And the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from all faces; The rebuke of His people He will take away from all the earth; For the LORD has spoken. And it will be said in that day: ‘Behold, this is our God; we have waited for Him, and He will save us. This is the LORD; we have waited for Him; we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation.’”

Let your heart merry, because the resurrection of Jesus Christ is the golden prize from GOD for your salvation.
