Are you ready for Resurrection Power?
1 But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. 2And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel. 5And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, "Why do you seek the living among the dead? 6He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee, 7 that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rise." 8And they remembered his words, 9and returning from the tomb they told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest. 10Now it was Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James and the other women with them who told these things to the apostles, 11but these words seemed to them an idle tale, and they did not believe them. 12But Peter rose and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he saw the linen cloths by themselves; and he went home marveling at what had happened.
do you seek the living among the dead?
He is not here, but has risen.
HIM (CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD)
GET READY FOR RESURRECTION POWER!
2) RESURRECTION POWER IS THE SPIRIT OF HOLINESS!
1Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God, 2which he promised beforehand through his prophets in the holy Scriptures, 3concerning his Son, who was descended from David according to the flesh 4and was declared to be the Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness by his resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord,
lift your drooping hands and strengthen your weak knees, 13and
make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be
put out of joint but rather be healed. 14 Strive for
peace with everyone, and for
the holiness without which no one will see the Lord.
HOLINESS IS A VERB – ACTIVE:
Strong's G38 - hagiasmos
Outline of Biblical Usage
A) consecration, purification
B) the effect of consecration
C) sanctification of heart and life
3) RESURRECTION POWER – HAS A DIVINE ORDER
in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the
firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. 21For as by
a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the
dead. 22For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall
all be made alive. 23 But
each in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, then at his coming
those who belong to Christ. 24Then
comes the end, when he delivers the kingdom to God the Father after
destroying every rule and every authority and power. 25For
he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. 26The
last enemy to be destroyed is death. 27For "God has
put all things in subjection under his feet." But when it says,
"all things are put in subjection," it is plain that he is
excepted who put all things in subjection under him. 28 When
all things are subjected to him, then the Son himself will also be
subjected to him who put all things in subjection under him, that
God may be all in all.
29Otherwise, what do people mean by being baptized on behalf of the dead? If the dead are not raised at all, why are people baptized on their behalf? 30Why are we in danger every hour? 31I protest, brothers, by my pride in you, which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die every day! 32What do I gain if, humanly speaking, I fought with beasts at Ephesus? If the dead are not raised, "Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die." 33 Do not be deceived: "Bad company ruins good morals." 34 Wake up from your drunken stupor, as is right, and do not go on sinning. For some have no knowledge of God. I say this to your shame.
4) RESURRECTION POWER –
IS A LIFE-GIVING SPIRIT
35But someone will ask, "How are the dead raised? With what kind of body do they come?" 36You foolish person! What you sow does not come to life unless it dies. 37And what you sow is not the body that is to be, but a bare kernel, perhaps of wheat or of some other grain. 38But God gives it a body as he has chosen, and to each kind of seed its own body. 39For not all flesh is the same, but there is one kind for humans, another for animals, another for birds, and another for fish. 40There are heavenly bodies and earthly bodies, but the glory of the heavenly is of one kind, and the glory of the earthly is of another. 41There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for star differs from star in glory.
42 So is it with the resurrection of the dead. What is sown is perishable; what is raised is imperishable. 43It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness; it is raised in power. 44It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. 45Thus it is written, "The first man Adam became a living being"; the last Adam became a life-giving spirit. 46But it is not the spiritual that is first but the natural, and then the spiritual. 47 The first man was from the earth, a man of dust; the second man is from heaven. 48As was the man of dust, so also are those who are of the dust, and as is the man of heaven, so also are those who are of heaven. 49Just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the man of heaven.
THE LIFE-GIVING SPIRIT IS THE IMAGE OF THE MAN FROM HEAVEN – JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD!
5) RESURRECTION POWER – CANNOT BE DESTROYED
tell you this, brothers: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom
of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. 51Behold!
I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but
we shall all be changed, 52 in
a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the
trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we
shall be changed. 53 For this perishable body must put on
the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality.
54When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the
mortal puts on immortality, then
shall come to pass the saying that is written:
"Death is swallowed up in victory." 55 "O death, where is your victory?
O death, where is your sting?"
sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. 57But
thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus
58 Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.
THE LIFE-GIVING SPIRIT – THE MAN FROM HEAVEN –SWALLOWS UP DEATH IN VICTORY – RESSURECTION POWER IS IMPERISHABLE!
Strong's G861 - aphtharsia
Outline of Biblical Usage
A) incorruption, perpetuity
B) purity, sincerity, incorrupt
6) RESURRECTION POWER MAY BE ATTAINED
8Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ 9and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith— 10 that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, 11that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead.
A) MAY KNOW HIM - THE POWER OF HIS RESURRECTION
B) MAY SHARE HIS SUFFERINGS
C) MAY ATTAIN THE RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD
7) RESURRECTION POWER CREATES MIRACLES
7 On the first day of the week, when we were gathered together to break bread, Paul talked with them, intending to depart on the next day, and he prolonged his speech until midnight. 8There were many lamps in the upper room where we were gathered. 9And a young man named Eutychus, sitting at the window, sank into a deep sleep as Paul talked still longer. And being overcome by sleep, he fell down from the third story and was taken up dead. 10But Paul went down and bent over him, and taking him in his arms, said, "Do not be alarmed, for his life is in him." 11And when Paul had gone up and had broken bread and eaten, he conversed with them a long while, until daybreak, and so departed. 12And they took the youth away alive, and were not a little comforted.
