VIII. MAIN BODY:
A. JESUS is The Resurrection and The Life
"Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life."
1. There are about 41 occurences of the word "resurrection" in the King James version, new testament. Resurrection came from the Greek word:"anastasis" meaning standing up again, a resurrection from death, recovery, raised to life again, rise from the dead, rising again. That's why CHRIST have to die first before He can be resurrected. It's GOD's Will of saving us, if CHRIST only died and never rose from the dead, then we don't have salvation. He saved us from death so we can have new life. While the word "life" appeared 450 times in the whole Bible and 186 times in New Testament alone in the King James version. What does this mean? Simply GOD wants us to live first.. Living is hard but with CHRIST it's nothing. Life came from the Greek word:"psuche" meaning spirit.. GOD is Spirit, without the Spirit we're all dead, so praise and worship the HOLY SPIRIT because it is He who gives us life. And the life is the LORD JESUS CHRIST.
1 Corinthians 15:21-23 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)
So you see, just as death came into the world through a man, now the resurrection from the dead has begun through another man.
Just as everyone dies because we all belong to Adam, everyone who belongs to Christ will be given new life.
But there is an order to this resurrection: Christ was raised as the first of the harvest; then all who belong to Christ will be raised when he comes back.
Philippians 3:11 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)
so that one way or another I will experience the resurrection from the dead!
2 Timothy 2:18 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)
They have left the path of truth, claiming that the resurrection of the dead has already occurred; in this way, they have turned some people away from the faith.
1 Peter 3:21 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)
And that water is a picture of baptism, which now saves you, not by removing dirt from your body, but as a response to God from a clean conscience. It is effective because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Revelation 20:5-6 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)
This is the first resurrection. (The rest of the dead did not come back to life until the thousand years had ended.)
Blessed and holy are those who share in the first resurrection. For them the second death holds no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him a thousand years.
B. Those who have faith in JESUS will live.
"Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying."
1. Before you can live for someone else, you need to believe that person first. Anyone is a word that gives hope and life, it's open for anyone. CHRISTianity is not a closed social networking site or group that you need to be invited first by another CHRISTian thougt at some point it is seen that way. The invitation is there, it stands. Anyone by opening the Bible can come to GOD and start to believe. Believe and faith starts from the heart, it's a personal thing or inward thing. Only faith in JESUS will save none else will do.
Acts 4:12 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)
There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.”
John 20:31 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)
But these are written so that you may continue to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing in him you will have life by the power of his name.
