Topic: The Power Of Resurrection [Sunday April 16, 2017]
“But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.” (Romans 8:11).
The power that raised Him from the dead is not of man or the devil. It is neither political nor economic but it is the power of the Holy Spirit and if you have that power dwelling in you, it will raise you from your condition.
Paul said “That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death.” (Philippians 3:10) What you do not know can injure you.
When Jesus was hanging from the cross, the devil was not thinking of resurrection. He did not know anything like that was going to happen, especially when Jesus cried, “my God, my God, why hath thou forsaken me?” The devil would have laughed at Him.
Do you feel forsaken in life? Resurrection is coming to you today. The devil thought it was over. In hell, he was celebrating. He said, “His father hath forsaken Him.” He died and was buried but in a few hours, there was a knock at the gate of hell. According to Psalm 24, Jesus shouted, “Lift up your heads O ye gates and ye everlasting doors be ye lifted up and the king of glory shall come in.”
The devil was trembling and confused. He said, “Who is this King of glory?” And Jesus answered, “The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.” By a remote control, the gates of hell opened and the King of Glory stepped into hell. He went to hell for battle. Jesus said; give me the keys of death and hell. And the devil handed over the keys to Jesus.
In Matthew 28:2, there was an earthquake and God dispatched an angel to roll the stone away and sat on it. The stone of sickness, oppression, depression, trouble, disease, confusion and sin rolled away from your life will not return to you.
Word of Wisdom: When God wants to work a miracle, He shakes everything.
Prayer: Satan, I know that you could not trap Jesus under the ground, He arose because of me and therefore, I arise today out of sickness, sin, difficulty, in Jesus’ name.
Further Ready: Prov. 26:27, Matthew 28:1-6
