The Resurrection Life

We are in the season of the Resurrection.  The accumulation of 3 days that ushered in eternal life for all of mankind.  We often overlook the great things Jesus accomplished for us by going to the cross.  This message will reflect on the resurrection, and emphasize the accomplishments Jesus resolved for all of us. 

 Isaiah 53: 1- 5:  1 Who has believed our message? And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?  2 He grew up before Him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no stately form or majesty to attract us, no beauty that we should desire Him.  3 He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, acquainted with grief.  Like one from whom men hide their faces, He was despised, and we esteemed Him not.  4 Surely He took on our infirmities and carried our sorrows; yet we considered Him stricken by God, struck down and afflicted.  5 But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.    Berean Study 

infirmities-Heb. maladies, anxieties, calamities, diseases, sicknesses, griefs;  sorrows-Heb.anguish and afflictions; transgressions: to break away from moral authority; sin, transgress; iniquities: root to be crooked; mischievous, morally evil, perversity; choose a crooked perverse path

Matthew 8:16, 17:  16 When evening came, many who were demon-possessed were brought to Jesus, and He drove out the spirits with a word and healed all the sick. 17This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah: “He took on our infirmities and carried our diseases.”   Berean Study

 

1 Peter 2: 24, 25:  24 He personally carried our sins in His body on the cross [willingly offering Himself on it, as on an altar of sacrifice], so that we might die to sin [becoming immune from the penalty and power of sin] and live for righteousness; for by His wounds you [who believe] have been healed. 25 For you were continually wandering like [so many] sheep, but now you have come back to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls.  Amp

 

I Peter 2: 18-25:  18 Those who are servants, submit to the authority of those who are your masters—not only to those who are kind and gentle but even to those who are hard and difficult. 19 You find God’s favor by deciding to please God even when you endure hardships because of unjust suffering. 20 For what merit is it to endure mistreatment for wrongdoing? Yet if you are mistreated when you do what is right, and you faithfully endure it, this is commendable before God. 21 In fact, you were called to live this way, because Christ also suffered in your place, leaving you his example for you to follow. 22 He never sinned and he never spoke deceitfully.  23 When he was verbally abused, he did not return with an insult; when he suffered, he would not threaten retaliation.  Jesus faithfully entrusted himself into the hands of God, who judges righteously. 24 He himself carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we would be dead to sin and live for righteousness. Our instant healing flowed from his wounding.  25 You were like sheep that continually wandered away, but now you have returned to the true Shepherd of your lives—the kind Guardian who lovingly watches over your souls.  TPT

 

Hebrews 2: 14, 15:  14 Now since the children have flesh and blood, He too shared in their humanity, so that by His death He might destroy him who holds the power of death, that is, the devil, 15and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.  Berean Study

 Revelation 1: 17, 18:  14 Now since the children have flesh and blood, He too shared in their humanity, so that by His death He might destroy him who holds the power of death, that is, the devil, 15and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.  Berean Study

 1 John 3: 8:  The one who practices sin [separating himself from God, and offending Him by acts of disobedience, indifference, or rebellion] is of the devil [and takes his inner character and moral values from him, not God]; for the devil has sinned and violated God’s law from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. Amp

John 10: 1-10:  1“Truly, truly, I tell you, whoever does not enter the sheepfold by the gate, but climbs in some other way, is a thief and a robber. 2 But the one who enters by the gate is the shepherd of the sheep. 3 The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen for his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4 When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. 5 But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will flee from him because they do not recognize his voice.”  6 Jesus spoke to them using this illustration, but they did not understand what He was telling them. 7 So He said to them again, “Truly, truly, I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. 8 All who came before Mea were thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. 9 I am the gate. If anyone enters through Me, he will be saved. He will come in and go out and find pasture. 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I have come that they may have life, and have it in all its fullness.  Berean Study
