Happy Resurrection Sunday 2017

In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. Matthew 28:1
And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. Matthew 28:2
His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: Matthew 28:3

He didn’t open to door to let Jesus out but rather to let the Ladies in

And to knock the keepers out.

And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men. Matthew 28:4
And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. Matthew 28:5
He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. Matthew 28:6
And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead;

We are empowered by the Holy Spirit to be witnesses of Jesus’ resurrection.

This Great Event, that took place after the cruxifixction and death of Jesus was prophesied about 1000 BC.
At that point King David wrote Psalm 89, in which he declared that the Messiah would overcome death.
In verse 38 The holy Spirit wrote through David, that the Messiah (Mashiach) would be rejected by the generation that He would come to,

But thou hast cast off and abhorred, thou hast been wroth with thine anointed. Psalms 89:38
Strongs 4899. mashiyach, maw-shee´-akh; from 4886; anointed; usually a consecrated person (as a king, priest, or saint); specifically, the Messiah:—anointed, Messiah.

In verse 48, David wrote:

What man is he that liveth, and shall not see death? shall he deliver his soul from the hand of the grave? Selah. Psalms 89:48

More Prophetic Scriptures:

I have set the Lord always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Psalms 16:8
Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. Psalms 16:9
For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. Psalms 16:10
Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. Psalms 16:11

And again:

The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. Psalms 110:1

He was declared to be the Son Of God

And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead: Romans 1:4

“He made an open show of the evil forces.”

And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.” Colossians 2:15.

He rose triumphant forever

“Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:9-11.

He obtained our pardon.

“and was raised again for our justification.” Romans 4:25b

The judgment of the world was assured

“Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device. And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.” Acts 17:29-31

How does this effect us as believers?

Join Him in His Resurrection Power
Romans 6:4-5

“Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.”
For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Romans 6:5
Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. Romans 6:6
