God loves you. “ The Lamb, who was killed before the origin of the world, is a man who has received support, splendor, wisdom, power, refinement, whole month, respect, faith and silt। Let him be glorified forever. ”Now came true Amen। In this world you have received everything but so far Jesus has not believed in Christ, you are the saddest and most righteous man ! The poorest people on earth are not without money but without Jesus Amen ! Your first need and need is the forgiveness of eternal security sins, salvation and eternal life – “ Behold, the Lamb of God who has raised the sin of the world’।And he is atonement for our sins, and not only for us, but also for the sins of the whole world। The only Creator God – Ekmatra Caste Man – Ekkatra Blood Red – Ekkatra Problem Sin – Ekkatra Solution Jesus Christ Do you know that there is eternal life even after the deer only God loves you ! Because God loved the world so much that he gave it to his only born Son – No one who believes in him is unhappy, But he may have eternal life, but God reveals his love for us: Christ died for us when we were sinners। Because you are saved by grace by faith; And it is not from you, it is God’s donation; He who is waking up to my door every day hears me waiting for the pillars of my doors, Blessed is that man। But God reveals his love for us: Christ died for us, while we are sinners। But in all these things we are even more than the winners by him, who loved us। Because I have been completely unarmed, neither death nor life, nor angels, neither the princes, nor the rights, nor the things that come from now, nor the things that come later, neither the heights, nor the deep, Neither any other creation can separate us from the love of God in our Lord Christ Jesus। Love is in this – not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent his Son to be atone for our sins। For God made sin for us, who did not know that we would be the righteousness of God। Jesus said to him: “ Bato, truth and life are me; No one comes to the Father except me. ” Your word is a light for my feet, and a light for my way। I cried before Miramire fell bright; I hope in your word। My eyes are open at night’s guard to meditate on your word। And call me on the day of the storm; I will deliver you, and you will raise me। He cures those with broken hearts and binds them to the ointment of their injuries। You will be in me and ask for whatever you want if my words are in you, and that will be done for you।

If Christ be Not Raised, Your Faith is Vain.

  • The Necessity of the Resurrection – Let’s first look at the necessity of the Resurrection. God used man to introduce two gigantic biblical themes into this world – death and life (or the resurrection from the dead). In what way was man responsible for catapulting this world into death? It was the fall into sin by Adam and Eve that resulted in death. The “death” that God is talking about in this verse is far worse than physical death. He is speaking about the second death, which is eternal spiritual death [death of soul and body] in Hell, as described in Rev 21:8. The enormous problem of sin, and its infinitely painful consequences of paying for one’s sins in eternal Hell are, without a shadow of a doubt, the greatest dilemma that anyone can face. The reason this problem is so overwhelming is that man is incapable of finding the solution on his own, although many people spend their lives vainly attempting to satisfy a Holy God by their own “works”, or religious efforts. Since the first mans sin resulted in death for the whole human race, which Man was therefore responsible for the resurrection from the dead? Again, we learn from the Bible that it was the Second Man (or the “Last Adam”), who brought about Life. The “second man” is none other than the Lord Jesus Christ, who is the eternal God as 1 Cor 15:47 affirms. Furthermore, Rom 1:4 emphasizes the supreme importance of the resurrection from the dead: “And declared to be the Son of God with poweraccording to the spirit of holinessby the resurrection from the dead”. Not only the physical resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, proves that Lord Jesus is successful and victorious in the Atonement and Gods righteous judgment was satisfied or propitiated by His sacrifice, but it also guarantees that all true Christians will be eternally saved.

Rom 5:12, 14, 19 “Wherefore, as by one man [Adamsin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all menfor that all have sinned. 14Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adams transgressionwho is the figure [figure of Christof him that was to come. 19For as by one mans [First Adamdisobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one [Second Adam Christshall many be made righteous.”

1 Cor 15:21, 47 “For since by man came deathby man came also the resurrection of the dead, 47The first man is of the earthearthythe second man is the Lord from heaven.”

  • If Christ be Not RaisedYour Faith is Vain – This is the summation of being a Christian and if Christ be NOT risen: If there is no reality, if there is no power behind what we read in the Bible about the resurrection of Christ, if these things are like so many things in the world, so many religions, so many professing Christian gospels that are out there that are NOT true to the Bible, if the true Gospel of the Bible is like all of that, then it is worthlessHebrews 11, the so-called “faith chapter” of the Bible, is a superb example of the faith that true believers have in Gods many promises in the Bible to raise them from the dead unto eternal life : “These all died in faithnot having received the promisesbut having seen them afar offand were persuaded of themand embraced themand confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth” (Heb 11:13). The passage Heb 11:1719 is referring to the account in Genesis 22 of Abrahams willingness to sacrifice Isaac, his “only begotten”. This account is a historical account pointing to Gods faithful sacrifice of His “Only Begotten”, the Lord Jesus Christ. God stopped Abraham from killing his son in actuality at the last second; but why would Abraham do such a terrible thing? Well, we read the reason in Heb 11:19, “Accounting that God was able to raise him upeven from the dead”. This New Testament verse explains that Abraham was confident that God would raise his son from the dead in order to keep His promise to “establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenantand with his seed after him” as we read in Gen 17:19. Then Heb 11:19 says, “… from whence also he [or Godreceived him [that is, Isaacin a figure [parabole:G3850]”. In other words,God set up this test to be an historical parable that Moses would write about in the book of Genesis over 600 years later. Spirituallyit points to the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, who would come as the Lamb of God over 2,000 years later as a fulfillment of Abrahams statement in Gen 22:8, “God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering”. Obviously, God knew in advance that Abraham would not fail the test. Abraham could not possibly have known Gods ultimate purpose at the time; but he obeyed God’s command solely “by faith” as we read in Heb 11:17, “By faith Abrahamwhen he was tried [or tested], offered up Isaac …”. It demonstrates Gods unique power to raise His people from spiritual death to spiritual life, even as Abraham was given the faith of Christ to believe that God could do that which was humanly impossible. Hebrews 11, which mentions numerous believers in the Old Testament who lived by the faith of the Son of God as they underwent many trials and hardships during their earthly sojournIf Christ be NOT risenthen there is no salvation possible and absolutely no hope of eternal life for them and us — and we Christians would be most miserable of all men, because we are even depriving ourselves of the things of this world. Even though those who do not have the Gospel have a vain life and existence, at least they do have the pleasure of sinHeb 11:2426, where God figuratively associates Egypt with sin, helps us to see how Moses chose “the reproach of Christ” over the pleasures of the world.

Heb 11:1719 “By faith Abrahamwhen he was tried [or tested], offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son. 18Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called: 19Accounting that God was able to raise him upeven from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.”

Heb 11:3234, 37 “And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets: Who through faith subdued kingdomswrought righteousnessobtained promisesstopped the mouths of lionsQuenched the violence of fireescaped the edge of the swordout of weakness were made strongwaxed valiant in fightturned to flight the armies of the aliens. 37They were stoned, they were sawn asunder , were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destituteafflictedtormented;”

Heb 11:2426 “By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter; Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of Godthan to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a seasonEsteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward [eternal life].”

1 Cor 15:1317 “But if there be no resurrection of the deadthen is Christ not risen: And if Christ be not risenthen is our preaching vainand your faith is also vain. Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christwhom he raised not upif so be that the dead rise notFor if the dead rise notthen is not Christ raisedAnd if Christ be not raisedyour faith is vainye are yet in your sins.”

  • It was NOT possible that Lord Jesus should be Holden of Death – The “resurrection of the dead” is an extremely important topic. When the Apostle Paul is giving his testimony, or actually defending himself before King Agrippa, he speaks of Jesus rising from the dead as we read in Acts 26:23-24: “That Christ should sufferand that he should be the first that should rise from the deadand should show light unto the peopleand to the Gentiles”, it was such an incredible fact for Festus to comprehend: “And as he thus spake for himselfFestus said with a loud voicePaulthou art beside thyselfmuch learning doth make thee mad”. The Athenians were the same way, so we read in Acts 17:32: “And when they heard of the resurrection of the deadsome mockedand others saidWe will hear thee again of this matterHowbeit certain men clave unto himand believed”. Yes, Christ took upon Him the sins of His people and experienced Gods Wrath — Hell for His people on the cross. Many would like to believe that this is where the story ends. Joseph of Arimathaea went to Pilate and begged His body, and he had a sepulcher nearby hewed in a rock. So we read about Joseph and Nicodemus and probably others also who had to roll away a stone, and the Bible tells us that it was a great stone. In Matt 27:63, the chief priests and Pharisees are saying: “Sirwe remember that that deceiver saidwhile he was yet aliveAfter three days I will rise again”. Continuing in Matt 27:6466, We see the desperation of the enemies of God who were doing everything that that they could, humanly speaking, make sure that Jesus stayed deadthe body of Jesus stays in the tomb, that it stays in the sepulcher. They could have had all the power of their army with their chariots and their horses, and it would not have made any difference at all. It would not have made the slightest difference, because the penalty had been paid in full and death could no longer hold the Lord Jesus Christ. We know that the truth is that Jesus did rise and this is what the Gospel centers on. We find this declaration in Acts 13:30 that “it was not possible that he [Lord Jesusshould be holden of it [death]” and “God raised Him from the dead”. The Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ is the cornerstone of the Christian faith. This is the key ingredient of the whole Gospel. Indeed, the Resurrection guarantees that all true Christians will be eternally saved, as we see in Rom 9:33. On the other hand, those who do not have a Savior will be “ashamed” – that is, eternally damned, as we find in 1 Pet 2:8Jesus is indeed the LORD from Heaventhe Creator and the only Savior.

Matt 27:6466 “Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third daylest his disciples come by nightand steal him awayand say unto the peopleHe is risen from the dead: so the last error shall be worse than the first. Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go your way, make it as sure as ye can. So they went, and made the sepulchre suresealing the stoneand setting a watch

Heb 2:9 “But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death [second deathfor every man [every one of His Elect].”

Acts 2:2324 “Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain: 24Whom God hath raised uphaving loosed the pains of deathbecause it was not possible that he should be holden of it [death].

  • Jesus the Author and Finisher of Faith – “Faith” is synonymous with the Lord Jesus Christ, Who is called “Faithful” in Rev 19:11. What was the “work of faith”, or rather, “the work of Christ” that He so faithfully performed? Isa 53:11 reveals: “He [referring to the Fathershall see of the travail [or workof his [Christssouland shall be satisfiedby his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify manyfor he shall bear their iniquities”. The “travail”, or “work”, that Christ had to endure was eternal damnation, which the Bible calls the “second death”. In John 4:34 we also find this statement, “Jesus saith unto themMy meat [foodis to do the will of him that sent meand to finish his work”. His perfect work was completed while on the Cross he uttered the words of John 19:30, “When Jesus therefore had received the vinegarhe saidIt is finishedand he bowed his headand gave up the ghost”. Yes, what had been “finished” or accomplished on the cross was the Atonement for the sins of Gods elect – a crucial element of their salvation. Lord Jesus was able to endure the Cross, with the faith in God the Father and in the promise to Him by His Father that His soul would not be left in Hell and that His body would not be subject to “corruption”, or decay (Acts 13:3337). Heb 12:2 declares, “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of (our: added by translators) faithwho for the joy that was set before him endured the crossdespising the shameand is set down at the right hand of the throne of God”. God is only pleased with His work, He is pleased with His salvation program that is centered around the faith OF the Lord Jesus Christ, as Gal 2:16 and 20 insist: “Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the lawbut by the faith of Jesus Christeven we have believed in Jesus Christthat we might be justified by the faith of Christand not by the works of the lawfor by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified … I am crucified with Christnevertheless I liveyet not Ibut Christ liveth in meand the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of Godwho loved meand gave himself for me”. The way that Christ “loved” the believers and “gave himself” for them is outlined in Isa 53:11, as we have seen above. Eph 2:89 declares, “For by grace are ye saved through faith [the faith of Christ]; and that not of yourselvesit is the gift of GodNot of workslest any man should boast”. After salvation we are given “faith” along with the other eight fruit (or “products”) of the Holy Spirit’s work in our lives, according to Gal:2223.

Rev 19:11, “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.”

Acts 2:2527 (quoting Psa 16:10) “For David speaketh concerning him [Christ], I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved: 26Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope: 27Because thou [God the Fatherwilt not leave my [God the Sonsoul in Hellneither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.”

Acts 13:3337 “God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Sonthis day have I begotten thee. And as concerning that he raised him up from the deadnow no more to return to corruption, he said on this wise, I will give you the sure mercies of David. Wherefore he saith also in another psalm, Thou shalt not suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell on sleep, and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption: But he [Christ], whom God raised againsaw no corruption.

  • The Hope of the Resurrection for the Christian – The Bible’s answer to the very important question, “What is faith?” is given in Heb 11:1, “Now faith is the substance [hupostasis:G5287] of things hoped forthe evidence of things not seen”. Who or what is the Christian’s “confidence” and the “substance of things hoped for”? What is it that a child of God hopes for? We read in Rom 8:2425, “For we are saved by hopebut hope that is seen is not hopefor what a man seethwhy doth he yet hope for? But if we hope for that we see notthen do we with patience wait for it”. We learn that one is “saved by hope”, but it is not something we can see physically. As the verse teaches; if we see something physically, there is really no need for hope2 Cor 5:7 similarly states, “For we walk by faithnot by sight”. 1 Cor 15:19 stresses the importance of a “living hope” for each believer who anticipates resurrection and spending eternity – not just a few years on this earth – with the object, or substanceof his hope – the Lord Jesus Christ: “If in this life only we have hope in Christwe are of all men most miserable”. 1 Pet 1:3 speaks about being “begotten again” (or “born again”) to such a glorious hope: “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christwhich according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively [or livinghope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead”. In other words, faith is a person, and a person has “substance”. Thus, the faith related to eternal salvation is the Lord Jesus Christ! the “evidence of things not seen” is a reference to the Written Word of God and also to the Incarnate Word of God, the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the “Word made flesh”, as we read in John 1:14, “And the Word was made fleshand dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glorythe glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth”. This point bears repeating: Faith is the Word of God – the Lord Jesus Christ. That is why Rom 10:17 announces, “So then faith [comethby hearingand hearing by the word of God”. 2 Cor 4:18 also mentions the difference between “things not seen” and the “things which are seen”: “While we look not at the things which are seenbut at the things which are not seenfor the things which are seen are temporalbut the things which are not seen are eternal”. If we are a true Christian, things that are eternal in character should grip our minds and hearts and motivate us to greater obedience, as Col 3:12 asserts: “If ye then be risen with Christseek those things which are abovewhere Christ sitteth on the right hand of GodSet your affection on things abovenot on things on the earth [temporal things]”.

Isa 25:8 “He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it. 9And it shall be said in that day, Lothis is our Godwe have waited for himand he will save usthis is the LORDwe have waited for himwe will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.”

Heb 1:13 “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Sonwhom he hath appointed heir of all thingsby whom also he made the worldsWho being the brightness of his gloryand the express image of his person (substance hupostasis:G5287), and upholding all things by the word of his powerwhen he had by himself purged our sinssat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;”

1 Pet 1:1821 “Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christas of a lamb without blemish and without spotWho verily was foreordained before the foundation of the worldbut was manifest in these last times for youWho by him do believe in Godthat raised him up from the deadand gave him glorythat your faith and hope might be in God.”

Col 2:1112 “In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of ChristBuried with him in baptismwherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of Godwho hath raised him from the dead.

For he that findeth me shall find life, and shall receive mercy from the Lord. But he that sinneth against me, harmeth his own soul; All those who hate me love death.’ Proverb. 8:35-36 But God shows his love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 He committed no sin, nor was any guile found in his mouth; He did not rebuke in return; He did not threaten when he suffered, but committed himself to the righteous judge. He Himself bore our sins in His own body on the cross, that we might die to sins and live to righteousness; By His stripes you were healed. 1 st. Proverb. 8:35-36 Nor is salvation in any other; For there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12 Jesus said to him: “I am the way, the truth, and the life; No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6 Behold, he comes with the clouds, and every eye shall see him, even those who despise him; And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of him. So be it! Amen! Revelation 1:7 And he was clothed in blood; And his name is called ‘Word of God’. Revelation 19:13 “And behold, I come quickly; And I have my reward to give to every man according to his work. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.” Revelation 22:12-13 Note: Today people don’t even have time to go to heaven. Believe in Jesus Christ and you will receive forgiveness of sins, salvation and eternal life.
