Resurrection Glory

Acts 4: 4:33 And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.

Physical death for a Christian is not a period but a comma. It takes the sunset to have aq sunrise. It takes a winters blast to have a summer’s beauty. It takes death’s decay to have Heaven destiny. The cruelties of the cross are man’s ugliest; the empty tomb and the resurrection of Christ God’s loving beautiful best.

1. The resurrected person.

1st.Cor. 15:14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.

The requirements fulfilled the old testament in Christ perfection

First fruits are harvested as promised.

Risen in the flesh—Clothed in immortality and purity

2. The resurrection power.

Phil. 3:10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;

Robbed the grave of its victory

Rode as a conqueror of virtue

Removed the mystery of the valley of death

3. The resurrection people

Gal 2: 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: neverthless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Born from above ---first birth

Buried beneath--- baptism

Bestowed as children of the beloved

4. The resurrection provision

Acts 2: 2:32 This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.

2:33 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.

Provides hope beyond the grave

Promises help beneath the grief

Produces happiness by the Lord God

5. The resurrection pledge


15:53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

The test has already been made

The terror already removed

The triumph already accomplished

6. The pillar of the resurrection

1st Cor. 15:13 But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen:

15:14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.

The empty grave

The expelled gloom

The extended grace

7. The resurrected pardon


24:47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

Open door of salvation

Opportunity displayed by the scriptures

Opponents defeated by our Saviour
