    The resurrection of Jesus should not have come as a surprise to anyone. Because of the resurrection we now have the power to live the wonderful life God created for us and have assurance of a blessed future life in the Kingdom of Heaven.

    The Other Resurrections “and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. 53 They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and[c] went into the holy city and appeared to many people.” Matthew 27:52-53 Intro: Hello Easter ...read more

     | 49,660 views

    At the moment of the Messiah’s death, God provided three miraculous signs. Matthew alone records all the supernatural events that accompany Jesus’ death. He aslo tells us of some of the people who witness the event & how some of them were affected.

    MATTHEW 27: [50] 51-56 WITNESSED SIGNS After Jesus dies the oppressive darkness over the earth is lifted. Everyone knew something significant had happened. The substitutionary death of Jesus brings light (salvation) to a world lost in sin and darkness, that is, to all those who accept ...read more

    based on 101 ratings
     | 14,389 views

    The cross is hideous. It’s not a pretty thing we hang on our walls. It’s not a fine piece of jewelry hanging from our neck. It is the most brutal instrument of death ever conceived by the cruel mind of man.

    For the past few weeks, we’ve been looking at the events of the last few days of Jesus’ life on earth. With each of those events, we’ve seen a sense of urgency. Each week we have seen an example of urgency. But this morning is different. In this morning’s passage, our Lord shows a sense of ...read more

  • The Dynamite Of The Cross

    Contributed by Bob Joyce on Sep 17, 2007
    based on 8 ratings
     | 10,127 views

    The dynamite (power) of the cross is displayed in the reaction of the centurion at Calvary’s cross. This is displayed through the righteousness and royalty of Christ, the response of heaven and the witness of the centurion’s own heart.

    The Bible does not give us many facts about activities of the centurions. In fact, centurions are referred to only four times in the Bible. Matthew 8 records the story where the centurion asked for his servant to be healed. “Lord, I am not worthy for You to come under my roof, but just say the ...read more
