Summary of the Sermon by Pastor Djohan Handojo, at Bethany International Service, on Sunday, 21 April 2019.

 

The Power of His Resurrection

 

 

Today the whole world celebrates the resurrection of Christ Jesus Our Lord.  Without the cross and the resurrection of Christ our faith is futile. Jesus was the only perfect sacrifice to atone for the sins of mankind.

 

Matthew 28:1-9 he proved that He is Messiah the Saviour

 

Without the resurrection there's no power of the Holy Spirit available for believers to do the works of God.

 

The cross and the victory of Christ have reconciled God and men

 

The truth about Jesus's resurrection

1. Jesus conquered death. Jesus is alive and He lives forevermore

“When I saw Him, I fell at His feet like a dead man. And He placed His right hand on me, saying, "Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last, and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades.” (Revelations 1:17-18)

 

Jesus is the one true Messiah Lord GOD our Saviour

Jesus is the only one whom we celebrate His death because Our God is not dead. In fact, He has risen and now seated at the right hand of the Father.

 

2. Jesus Christ assures us of heavenly blessings

We have an incorruptible and undefiled inheritance reserved in Heaven for us. In 1 Peter 1:3-4, ““Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you,”

 

3. JESUS holds the keys of Hades and of death.

“and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades.” (Revelation 1:18)

 

Jesus has resurrected and He has the power over death! There is power and authority in the Name of Jesus. Peter confessed that Jesus is the living Son of GOD and Jesus told him that the gates of hell shall not prevail it. See 1 Corinthians 15:26 and Romans 6:9.

 

4. The gospel is filled with the power of Holy Spirit God 2 Tim 2:8

In Romans 1:16, the apostle Paul shared that the gospel of Christ is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes.

 

Today receive these truths. Easter is the time we celebrate Jesus's victory over sins curse, death, lust of the flesh, hell and hence we want to live for Christ for all that He has done for us. 

 

He who believes and is baptised will be saved but those who do not believe will be condemned. (Mark 16:16)

 

Jesus came to fulfil the laws of the Old Testament. Let the power of the resurrection of Christ Jesus transform our lives from Saul to Paul.

 

Jesus reigns over all powers. Let us live in His resurrection power; be a blessing, win souls, reach out make an impact to the people around us as our response for His victory.

 

Bill Wilson is a living example for us believers, he spreads the love of Christ through ministering to the Bronx street broken families and hurting children. Today, the ministry has reached out to thousands of children around the world. Many lives were saved and transformed as a result.

 

The Lord wants us to make Use the opportunities we have to preach the gospel and touch a life with the power of Christ's love.
