WHAT IF THERE WAS NO RESURRECTION

I CORINTHIANS 15:12-20

And if you would be so kind to stand with me to give reverence to God’s Word

This morning I would like to Preach with the power and presence of the Holy Spirit on WHAT IF… THERE WAS NO RESURRECTION

PRAYER

VS 13

If is a big little word. When I read the word If I start study the why of the If. The word If is telling us that there are some question that needs to be answered.

Paul uses the word if in our text 7 times and after he uses the word IF he makes a statement or a fact.

And the question is WHAT IF THERE WAS NO RESURRECTION?

Paul answers this question

1. VS 12-13 – THERE IS NO FOUNDATION FOR OUR FAITH

The difference From What The Bible Says and all other religions is that CHRIST IS RISEN

BUDDAH IS DEAD

MOHAMMED IS DEAD

CONFUSESES IS DEAD

MARY IS DEAD

POPES HAVE AND WILL CONTINUE TO DIE

JOSEPH SMITH IS DEAD

PREACHERS HAVE AND WILL DIE

Paul states if there is no Resurrection then Jesus is dead still in the grave and basically how can a dead God save anyone!!

If Jesus is dead we might as well let the kids find the eggs and go home!!

We have no foundation for our faith because the Bible says:

I Corinthians 3:11

For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

In the Old Testament they had the faith that one day the Messiah would come to shed His blood and die and be risen again

Psalm 16:10

For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

IF THERE IS NO RESURRECTION WE HAVE NO FOUNDATION TO BUILD OUR FAITH ON OR OUR LIVES ON.

2. Because the Word of God is all about Jesus IF THERE BE NO R ESURRECTION GOD’S WORD IS USELESS.

Because the central theme of God’s Word is about Jesus.

There is no need to Read God’s Word – Study – Memorize – Meditate – Obey IF THERE IS NO RESURRECTION.

3. VS 14 PREACHING IS VAIN – USELESS

I have wasted almost 30 years praying and seeking the Lord what He wants me to preach.

I am wasting my time preparing – I am wasting my time Preaching.

Because there is no Gospel to preach. What am I tell you that Jesus Left the splendor of Heaven to be born of a virgin to live 33 ½ years and then He was crucified and He died and was put in the Grave? AND THAT IS IT!!

I would be like many preachers who will stand before thousands of people with no hope to give the a hopeless people

If there is no resurrection I am a fool if Christ did not rise from the grave.

4. VS 14 OUR FAITH IS VAIN – USELESS

If Jesus is dead then we are wasting our time serving Him and worshipping Him

If Jesus is still in the grave then everything we do as saved people is false – phony – and foolish

If Jesus is still in the grave just think for a moment with me.

ALL THE PREACHING YOU HAVE LISTEN TOO OVER THE YEARS IS A LIE

ALL OF OUR PRAYERS

OUR SERVICE

SINGING

WITNESSING

CHURCH ATTENDANCE

Is all a big waste of time.

Are you listening IF THERE WAS NO RESURRECTION then we are the victims of the cruelest hoax ever played out on humanity and the Christian faith is the greatest joke of all time.
