He is your Life !!!
by Erik Momsen
This Resurrection Day is the day creation has waited for since God said:
"And for Adam and his wife the LORD God made coats of skins, and clothed them. .... Behold, the man has become as one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put forth his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever, therefore the LORD God sent him out from the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he had been taken." (Genesis 3:22,23)
- Man could not have the tree of life until his sin had forever been paid for.
- The life that was Adam's was lost through his disobedience and only God could restore that life to him.
- Animal sacrifices continue until man accepts the ONE sacrifice of Jesus.
THIS DAY CHANGED THEIR LIVES
THE FIRST FROM DEATH FOREVER
"He is not here, for He has risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead. And, behold, He goes before you into Galilee. There you shall see Him. Lo, I have told you. ..... And when they saw Him, they worshiped Him. But some doubted." (Matthew 28:6,7,17)
"Do not be frightened. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen, He is not here. Behold the place where they laid Him. But go tell His disciples and Peter that He goes before you into Galilee. There you will see Him, as He said to you." (Mark 16:6,7)
"And when Jesus had risen early the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom He had cast seven demons. She went and told those who had been with Him, as they mourned and wept. And those hearing that He lives, and was seen by her, they did not believe. After that He appeared in another form to two of them, walking and going into the country. And they went and told it to the rest. Neither did they believe those. Afterward He appeared to the Eleven as they reclined. And He reproached their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen." (Mark 16:9-14)
"You have taken and by lawless hands, crucifying Him, you put Him to death; whom God raised up, having loosed the pains of death, because it was not possible that He should be held by it." (Acts 2:23,24)
"God raised up this Jesus, of which we all are witnesses." (Acts 2:32)
JESUS KEPT TELLING THEM HE WAS "LIFE"
"In Him was life, and the life was the light of men." (John 1:4)
"Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes on Him who sent Me has everlasting life and shall not come into condemnation, but has passed from death to life. Truly, truly, I say to you, the hour is coming and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God, and they who hear shall live. For as the Father has life in Himself, so He has given to the Son to have life within Himself." (John 5:24-26)
BELIEF BRINGS LIFE - BUT ARE YOU LIVING FULLY
MANY BELIEVE ONLY IN HALF-LIFE
SATAN WANTS TO STEAL THE FULL MESSAGE
"Behold! I have set before you today life and good, and death and evil, in that I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, so that you may live and multiply. And the LORD your God shall bless you in the land where you go to possess it. But if you turn away your heart, so that you will not hear, but shall be drawn away and worship other gods and serve them, I declare to you today that you shall surely perish; you shall not prolong your days on the land where you pass over Jordan to go to possess it I call Heaven and earth to record today against you. I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing. Therefore, choose life, so that both you and your seed may live so that you may love the LORD your God, and that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him. For He is your life and the length of your days, ... " (Deuteronomy 30:15-20)
