Scripture at Sunrise 4.2.2018

“And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain…But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead…” -1 Corinthians 15:14,20

There is no point in life if there is no resurrection. With no resurrection, there is no relationship with God. There is nothing after death. There is no purpose for morals. There is no hope beyond this life. There is no reason for living. If there is no resurrection, the power of death remains unbroken and we remain dead in our sins. But the reality is, there is a resurrection!

Scripture at Sunrise 10.4.2017

“Therefore order the tomb to be made secure until the third day…” -Matthew 27:64

Jesus has broken out and He is looking for you! Jesus’ enemies made every attempt to assure He would never come out of the grave, but He broke out. It was not possible for Jesus to be held by death. –excerpts from Dave Parks’ Sunday Evening Sermon [audio here]

Scripture at Sunrise 9.3.2013

And ye shall know that I am the Lord, when I have opened your graves, O My people, and brought you up out of your graves. -Ezekiel 37:13

Indeed it must be so: those who receive life from the dead are sure to recognize the hand of the Lord in such a resurrection. This is the greatest and most remarkable of all changes that a man can undergo — to be brought out of the grave of spiritual death and made to rejoice in the light and liberty of spiritual life. None could work this but the living God, the Lord and giver of life.

Ah, me! How well do I remember when I was lying in the valley full of dry bones, as dry as any of them! Blessed was the day when free and sovereign grace sent the man of God to prophesy upon me! Glory be to God for the stirring which that word of faith caused among the dry bones. More blessed still was that heavenly breath from the four winds which made me live! Now know I the quickening Spirit of the ever-living Jehovah, Truly Jehovah is the living God, for He made me live. My new life even in its pinings and sorrowings is clear proof to me that the Lord can kill and make alive. He is the only God. He is all that is great, gracious, and glorious, and my quickened soul adores Him as the great I AM. All glory be unto His sacred name! As long as I live I will praise Him.

Scripture at Sunrise 4.1.2013

“But the words “it was counted to him” were not written for his sake alone, but for ours also. It will be counted to us who believe in Him who raised from the dead Jesus our Lord, who was delivered up for our trespasses and raised for our justification.” -Romans 4:23-25

How do I know God accepted Christ’s death on my behalf? He raised Him up from the dead! -J. Anthony Vance from Morning Sermon on Romans 4:18-5:11

Scripture at Sunrise 10.16.2012

Because I live, ye shall live also. -John 14:19

Jesus has made the life of believers in Him as certain as His own. As sure as the Head lives the members live also. If Jesus has not risen from the dead, then are we dead in our sins; but since He has risen, all believers are risen in Him. His death has put away our transgressions and loosed the bonds which held us under the death sentence. His resurrection proves our justification: we are absolved, and mercy saith, “The Lord hath put away thy sin, thou shalt not die.”

Jesus has made the life of His people as eternal as His own. How can they die as long as He lives, seeing they are one with Him? Because He dieth no more, and death hath no more dominion over Him, so they shall no more return to the graves of their old sins but shall live unto the Lord in newness of life. O believer, when, under great temptation, thou fearest that thou shalt one day fall by the hand of the enemy, let this reassure thee. Thou shalt never lose thy spiritual life, for it is hid with Christ in God. Thou dost not doubt the immortality of thy Lord; therefore, do not think that He will let thee die, since thou art one with Him. The argument for thy life is His life, and of that thou canst have no fear; wherefore rest in thy living Lord.
