The Resurrected Life

“The Resurrected Life”

1. WE HAVE A NEW LIFE. 2 Cor 5:17

PAUL SAID, “I am crucified with Christ.” (Gal 2:20)

PAUL ALSO SAID, “I am risen with Christ.”

Col 3:1 Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. 3 For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory. 5 Therefore consider the members of your earthly body as dead to immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which amounts to idolatry.

2. WE CAN FORGIVE.

Eph 4:32 Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you

5:1 Be Imitators of God Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children; and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God 2 as a fragrant aroma.

HE CHANGED MY NATURE FROM HUMAN TO HOLY.

1 Pet 2:23 For you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring word of God.

3. WE CAN SERVE.

Gal 5:13 For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.

4. WE CAN OBEY.

EVERY DAY, WE CAN SURRENDER OUR WILL TO GOD. HE’S GOT A PURPOSE, A JOB, A CALLING FOR US.

Rom 6:17 But thanks be to God that though you were slaves of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that form of teaching to which you were committed, and having been freed from sin, you became slaves of righteousness.

5. WE CAN WIN.

· HE STRIPPED THE DEVIL OF HIS POWER. HE RIPPED OPEN THE GRAVE AND STOOD ALIVE IN MIGHTY POWER.

Col 2:13 When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our transgressions, 14 having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against us, which was hostile to us; and He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. 15 When He had disarmed the rulers and authorities, He made a public display of them, having triumphed over them through Him.

Ps 20:5 We will sing for joy over your victory, And in the name of our God we will set up our banners.

1 John 5:4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.

2 Cor 2:14 But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place.

Rom 8:11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

EASTER IS A CELEBRATION OF DEAD PEOPLE WHO HAVE COME ALIVE IN CHRIST.

LIVE. FORGIVE. SERVE. OBEY. WIN.

Upon a Cross

Upon a Cross

ONE OF THE GREATEST ASPECTS OF OUR REDEMPTION IS THE HEALING GRACE OF GOD.

HEALING WAS A BENEFIT THAT WAS PROVIDED UNDER THE OLD COVENANT.

Exodus 23:25 But you shall serve the Lord your God, and He will bless your bread and your water; and I will remove sickness from your midst. 26 There shall be no one miscarrying or barren in your land; I will fulfill the number of your days.

Ps 103:3 Who pardons all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases

Ps 107:20 He sent His Word and healed them, And delivered them from their destructions

TO OBTAIN THIS BELIEF… 3 AREAS OF THE WORD TO LOOK TO

1. TYPES AND SHADOWS…

A. THE PASSOVER LAMB…

THE PASSOVER LAMB TYPIFIES CHRIST ON THE CROSS.

Exodus 12 – INSTRUCTIONS CONCERNING THE LAMB
1 Cor 5:7 For Christ our Passover also has been sacrificed.

B. THE BRONZE SERPENT…

John 3:14 As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up; 15 so that whoever believes will in Him have eternal life.

Numb 21:9 And Moses made a bronze serpent and set it on the standard; and it came about, that if a serpent bit any man, when he looked to the bronze serpent, he lived.

John 12:32 And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Myself.”

JESUS IS THE FULFILLMENT OF THE TYPES AND SHADOWS.

2. THE WORKS OF JESUS!
Matt 8:2 And behold, there came to him a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. 3 And he stretched forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou made clean. And straightway his leprosy was cleansed.

16 And when even was come, they brought unto him many possessed with demons: and he cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all that were sick: 17 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying: Himself took our infirmities, and bare our diseases.

3. THE PLAN OF REDEMPTION!
Gal 3:13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us; for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: 14 that upon the Gentiles might come the blessing of Abraham in Christ Jesus; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

1 Peter 2:24 who his own self bare our sins in his body upon the tree, that we, having died unto sins, might live unto righteousness; by whose stripes ye were healed.

Isaiah 53:3 He was despised and forsaken of men, A man of sorrows (Pains) and acquainted with grief (Sickness) 4 Surely he hath borne our griefs (Sicknesses), and carried our sorrows (Pains); yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

THROUGH THE PLAN OF REDEMPTION IT’S EASY TO SEE THAT IT IS GOD’S WILL FOR ME TO BE WELL AND IT FORMS OR STRENGTHENS WHAT I BELIEVE.
