Resurrection From Dead Dreams

As the people of God assemble on Resurrection Sunday may the power of that very Resurrection fill the room and fill each person. May He, Who IS the Resurrection revive all the dreams and all the visions that have died AnticipationJumpWavesor ceased to function in each one. May we come through Resurrection Sunday standing up again and going out in the name of the Lord preaching His ever-expanding Kingdom that those who are captive might be set free in King Jesus’ resurrection power for the purposes of our Lord.
Rom.6:4,TPT—“Sharing in his death by our baptism means that we were co-buried with him, so that when the Father’s glory raised Christ from the dead, we were also raised with him. We have been co-resurrected with him so that we could be empowered to walk in the freshness of new life.”


To Stand up Again

Martha spoke of resurrection in terms of an end-time doctrine. JESUS spoke of resurrection in terms of that which is a present fact applicable to present circumstances. JESUS was challenging Martha to see it and experience it BEFORE the Last Day.  If JESUS cannot raise us from the death of failure (“death”: termination or extinction of something; cessation of all vital functions), from the death “of ceasing of function”, from the death of “not functioning because of fault or breakdown”, how can He raise us from the dust at the Last Day?
ResurrectionTombHere at Bethany, where JESUS is speaking to Martha, He is only two miles from Jerusalem where He healed one who had been diseased for 38 years; He healed one who had been blind since birth; now He raised one who had been dead for four days. Surely He can raise you up today. I like this definition of resurrection: “to stand up again.” Rejoice, it’s Resurrection Day! You can stand up again because Resurrection is a Person! (v.25) Jn.11:23—“Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.”  24  Martha said to Him, “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.”  25  Jesus said to her, “I AM THE RESURRECTION and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.”


Christ Arose!

A BLESSED RESURRECTION DAY AND RESURRECTION-POWER EXPERIENCE TO YOU AND YOURS!
Hymn: “Christ Arose” by Robert Lowry, 1874
(At the church my father pastored, along with “The Old Rugged Cross” and “He Lives” we sang this one every Easter. On the chorus when we sang the second “He arose!”, we held out the “arose” for a LONG time, along with shouts of “Amen”, “Glory” and “Hallelujah”.)

worship singingLow in the grave He lay,
Jesus, my Savior,
Waiting the coming day,
Jesus, my Lord!

Refrain:
Up from the grave He arose,
With a mighty triumph o’er His foes,
He arose a Victor from the dark domain,
And He lives forever, with His saints to reign.
He arose! He arose! Hallelujah! Christ arose!

Vainly they watch His bed,
Jesus, my Savior;
Vainly they seal the dead,
Jesus, my Lord!

Death cannot keep his Prey,
Jesus, my Savior;
He tore the bars away,
Jesus, my Lord!


Jesus Conquered

EmptyTombFound this quote in my notes:  “Jesus did not conquer in spite of the dark mystery of evil, He conquered through it.”  

”… I died, but see, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of [absolute control and victory over] death and of Hades (the realm of the dead).(Rev.1:18, Amp)
