Resurrection; the very power of God, and is the Gospel


Resurrection: Anastasia


Look up Anastasia at Dictionary.com; fem. proper name, from fem. of L.L. Anastasius, from Gk. Anastasios, from anastasis "resurrection," lit. "a standing or rising up," from ana "up; again" (see ana-) + histanai "to cause to stand, to stand up" from PIE root *sta- "stand"

 

How many resurrections does it take to convince you that physical death is not the end of the life within?

 

Samuel is raised from the dead; 1 Samuel 28:7-12

 

Elijah raises a child from the dead; 1 Kings 17:17-24

 

Elisha raises a child from the dead; 2 Kings 4:35

 

A dead man is raised after his body touches the bones of Elisha; 2 Kings 13:21

 

Jesus raises Jairus' daughter; Matthew 9:25

 

Moses appears at the transfiguration; Matthew 17:3

 

Jesus raises the widow's son; Luke 7:13-15

 

Jesus raises Lazarus; John 11:43-44

 

Jesus is raised from the dead; Matthew 28:5-7

 

Many Saints are raised after Jesus after Jesus' resurrection; Matthew 27:52-53

 

Peter raises Tabitha; Acts 9:36-42

 

Paul raises Eutychus; Acts 20:9-12

 

How many resurrections does it take to convince you that physical death is already defeated?

 

2 Ti 1:10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who has abolished death, and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:

 

The Western mindset sees this word "Abolished" and believes this to mean completely done away with, but how can that make sense considering people still physically die?

 

In this verse, abolished comes from the Greek word "Katargeo" and is defined in Strong's Concordance as:

 

1) to render idle, unemployed, inactivate, inoperative

 

1a) to cause a person or thing to have no further efficiency

 

1b) to deprive of force, influence, power

 

2) to cause to cease, put an end to, do away with, annul, abolish

 

2a) to cease, to pass away, be done away

 

2b) to be severed from, separated from, discharged from, loosed from any one

 

2c) to terminate all intercourse with one

 

Did you notice the last part of the verse "has brought life and immortality to light" through the gospel?

 

Gospel is "good news, or glad tidings"

 

Does the Gospel on its own raise the dead?

 

Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believes; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

 

Did you catch that? The Gospel (Good News/Glad Tidings) is the very power of God.

 

It is the Gospel, which is the power of God, that brings Salvation.

 

The phrase "to every one that believes" is not the giving of a requirement or mandate, but is simply a stated fact.

 

2 Corinthians 13:4 For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he lives by the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you.

 

Jesus the Christ was crucified, and died, but this scripture clearly states that he lives; how? By the very power of God.

 

Have you ever heard of a Court case being overturned "in light" of new evidence?

 

This word "light"(In Romans 1:16) is from the Greek word " photizo" and is defined as follows:

 

1) to give light, to shine

 

2) to enlighten, light up, illumine

 

3) to bring to light, render evident

 

3a) to cause something to exist and thus come to light and become clear to all

 

4) to enlighten, spiritually, imbue with saving knowledge

 

4a) to instruct, to inform, teach

 

4b) to give understanding to

 

All in darkness is revealed as soon as light shines on it.

 

When will you come to the light, and understand the revealing/unveiling, that death is swallowed up in victory? When will you understand that the death of the flesh is not the death of life itself?

 

How many resurrections does it take: 1 Samuel 28:7-12, 1 Kings 17:17-24, 2 Kings 4:35, 2 Kings 13:21, 9:25, Luke 7:13-15, John 11:43-44, Matthew 28:5-7, Matthew 27:52-53, Acts 9:36-42, Acts 20:9-12 before you'll realize that the last enemy (1 Corinthians 15:26 - also from Katargeo) is already abolished, destroyed, and defeated?

 

As all these resurrections demonstrate; you can kill the body, but you can not kill the life within.

 

Won't you believe in the power of God; which is the Gospel - Good News - Glad Tidings, and is the very Salvation/Saving of the soul!
