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.

VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. Touching the LORD will make her unclean

"“Don’t cling to me,” Jesus said, “for I haven’t yet ascended to the Father."

1. JESUS is not yet offered to the FATHER (1 John 1:1, Isaiah 52:11, 2 Corinthians 6:17)

1 John 1:1 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

We proclaim to you the one who existed from the beginning, whom we have heard and seen. We saw him with our own eyes and touched him with our own hands. He is the Word of life.

Isaiah 52:11 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Get out! Get out and leave your captivity, where everything you touch is unclean. Get out of there and purify yourselves, you who carry home the sacred objects of the Lord.

2 Corinthians 6:17 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Therefore, come out from among unbelievers, and separate yourselves from them, says the Lord. Don’t touch their filthy things, and I will welcome you.

2. JESUS became sin for us. (2 Corinthians 5:21, Hebrews 9:11, Hebrews 9:21)

2 Corinthians 5:21 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.

Hebrews 9:11 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

So Christ has now become the High Priest over all the good things that have come. He has entered that greater, more perfect Tabernacle in heaven, which was not made by human hands and is not part of this created world.

Hebrews 9:21 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

And in the same way, he sprinkled blood on the Tabernacle and on everything used for worship.

B. The disciples became His brothers, His FATHER became our FATHER, and His GOD became our GOD. (John 1:12, 2 Corinthians 6:18)

"But go find my brothers and tell them that I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.” "

John 1:12 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God.

2 Corinthians 6:18 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

And I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”

THREE Changes that happened after resurrection:

1. Disciples into brothers

The difference in us from the world than mere brotherhood is our love for each other.

1 John 4:20-21 (New Century Version)

If people say, “I love God,“ but hate their brothers or sisters, they are liars. Those who do not love their brothers and sisters, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have never seen.

And God gave us this command: Those who love God must also love their brothers and sisters.

1 John 4:21 (New International Version)

And he has given us this command: Whoever loves God must also love his brother.

John 15:12 (New International Version)

My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.

2. GOD, the Father to our Father

Our ministry in the New Covenant is much better because as of now GOD is our Father, and whatever the Father has, we also have. Unlike in the Old covenant, they serve GOD as their GOD, as being servants not like sons.

Revelation 1:6 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

He has made us a Kingdom of priests for God his Father. All glory and power to him forever and ever! Amen.

2 John 1:9 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Anyone who wanders away from this teaching has no relationship with God. But anyone who remains in the teaching of Christ has a relationship with both the Father and the Son.
