Resurrection sunday we celebrate the very essence of the christian faith. There are the resurrection sunday makes the christian faith to be the christian faith. I had the legal and that is why the man who had an encounter with the resurrected jesus he could say to us if christ had not been raised from the dead then are vain and your faith is in vain without the resurrection of jesus Christianity would be a dead religion without the resurrection of jesus. Then all of our faith is empty without the resurrection of jesus Christianity is meaningless without the resurrection of jesus. The faith of 2.5 billion people in the world would be a hoax. But then there is more the coming of jesus from heaven. The crucifixion of Jesus on the cross and the resurrection of Jesus from the grave has been prophesying and predicted many years earlier, ken Whitman and Wet Alamar. Asinine. In fact, the bible from cover to cover tells us that the cross of christ and the empty tomb are inseparable as God’s plan of salvation by his crucifixion, Jesus took our punishment on his holy body punishment that we deserve. But by his resurrection he assures us of a place in heaven with him. A kid lena and the Lennon McCann mao by his crucifixion, he became the lamb of God who takes away the sin of whoever believes in him. But by his resurrection he became the lion of Judah who reigns and rules forever by his crucifixion, Jesus made himself to be a victim of arson. But by his resurrection, Jesus destroyed the power of death for his believers. By his crucifixion, Jesus reconciled us to God the father, a lot of Alana, but by his resurrection, he adopted us to be his brothers and sisters by his crucifixion, Jesus pardon and forgave the sin of everyone who repents, but by his resurrection, jesus appoints the believers to judge the entire world by his crucifixion, Jesus washed us and cleanse us from all our sins and guilt. But by his resurrection he qualified us to reign and rule with him forever. By his crucifixion, Jesus opened the door of salvation to whomsoever comes to him, everyone who received him as the only savior and lord. But by his resurrection he placed the christian believer, what are the minimum at the seat of honor in heaven? The McKenna’s question, why is this vitally important to understand little hombre? Because the crucifixion and the resurrection are inseparable. Talib leon face a little. The Crucifixion and the Resurrection of Jesus are like one coin. If you split it, it becomes ineffective. Why is that so important? Because the historical resurrection of Jesus is at the core of the christian faith and therefore it is at the very core of our only hope of escaping judgment because only the resurrected jesus can assure us of our own eternal life with him. Because only christ empty tomb can give us hope for living. Only christ empty tomb can give us purpose for living without the empty to Christianity and christians are helpless and that is why the historical resurrection of Jesus is everything and what now throughout history. So el nina people. Men and women tried throughout history to deal with death it’s a powerful enemy then nobody could defeat it. It is a powerful enemy of every human being on the face of the earth. Who I do, I need to get the different cultures try to deal with death differently. Some tried to avoid it and they thought they can escape it. Others try to cope with it as an inevitability. But how all these efforts of coping with death are useless. How insane! But we have indisputable evidence, evidence of how to deal with death and the grave. All of man’s effort to cope with death a little insane are an indication that everybody wants to live forever. But God provided us with a way to live forever. He gave us the power to overcome death and that is why jesus rose from the dead on the third day. And that is why God, the father raised him up on the third day. The only power against hopelessness of death is found in the one who says because I live, You also live. The only answer to the hopelessness of life is found in the one who says I am the resurrection and the life. The only answer for the hopelessness of death is found in the one who said I go to the father and prepare a place for you. And the only answer to the hopelessness and fear of death is found in the one who destroyed death and he’s the only one who has power to destroy death. He’s the one who defeat fear of death is the only one who destroyed the dread of death and he opened the door of eternal life to everyone. Everyone who trusts him as the only savior of their life. This my friend, is the greatest news of this resurrection sunday. The good news of the resurrection of Jesus outweighs all of the bad news of the world. Can I ask you a question? And I pray to God that you must answer it now? And if you die today, will you be confident that you will be with jesus for all of eternity? You have to understand that heaven is jesus is heaven without jesus? There is no entry into heaven. So if your answer to the question is yes, it’s a candidate, Vietnam and Malaysia, I will be in heaven. And then the next question is this on what basis will jesus let you come into his heaven. I have done some good things. I that will not give you entry to heaven. I hope that my good will outweigh my bad man that will not entering, enter you into heaven. God’s word, said, none of us are good enough for heaven. Only faith in the resurrected jesus will guarantee his entry into heaven. Only holding onto the righteousness of the resurrected jesus can usher us into heaven after all, Jesus is the only perfect sinless god man who ever lived and only a sinless christ can stand and mediate between us and a holy God. It is my prayer that you can say today, Lord jesus christ come into my life, forgive my sins only through the death and the crucifixion and the resurrection of jesus I can come into heaven, Jesus promised that when you invite him into your life he will come and dwell in you by his holy spirit my friend today you can experience their joy by surrendering to the resurrected jesus. Today you can experience the joy of his forgiveness of all of your sins today you can experience the peace that passes understanding today, you can be assured of eternal life in heaven with jesus right now.
