7 Facts the Resurrection Assures Us Of

THE resurrection of Christ is the heart of Christianity, which makes it pulsate with the life of God; it is the keystone to the arch of truth, which holds all the faith of the Gospel together; it is the foundation of the Church; it is the mainspring of Christian activity; it is the lever of power which shall move the world; and it is the link that unites all believers.

The death of Christ tells us of the love of God, and the resurrection of Christ tells us of the power of God, and of the following seven facts:-

1. That God is satisfied and glorified (Romans 8:33,34).

2. That our sins are gone (Ephesians 1:7).

3. That we are accepted in Christ (Ephesians 1:6).

4. That we are united to Christ (Colossians @:12; 3:1).

5. That every foe is vanquished (Colossians 2:15).

6. That we shall for ever live with Him (John 14:19).

7. That the Spirit is given to the believer (John 7:39).

Further, the resurrection of Christ was announced in the Scriptures. The death, burial, and resurrection of Christ, were “according to the Scriptures.” Mainly the Old Testament is meant when the New Testament speaks of “the Scriptures.” Where, in the Old Testament is the resurrection of Christ mentioned? Peter, on the Day of Pentecost, by the Holy Spirit, says in the “sixteenth Psalm” (Psalm 16:8-11; Acts 2:24-32); and Paul at Antioch says in the “second Psalm” (Psalm 2:7; Acts 13:32-37). The God-breathed Scriptures (2 Timothy 3:16) were the basis and the authority of the utterance of the apostles, therefore they had an authority above all question, for “where the word of a king is, there is power” (Ecclesiastes 8:4); and the hearers who received their message had a solid rock upon which to rest, which could never be moved (1 Corinthians 15:1-4).
