    based on 8 ratings
     | 7,327 views

    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.

    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.

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

  • Urgent Atonement Series

    based on 101 ratings
     | 14,549 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

    A Good Friday sermon as part of the lenten series Words of Lent. (This sermon quotes several historical perspectives and descriptions of crucifixion)

  • The Dynamite Of The Cross

    Contributed by Bob Joyce on Sep 14, 2007
    based on 8 ratings
     | 10,337 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
