Romans 1:4

"And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead: "

That Jesus Christ is the son of God with power.

Without the resurrection, Jesus Christ is just another man that died.

Without the resurrection, all Jesus Christ's claims are lies.

Without the resurrection, all we have is a dead man that claimed to a savior.

Without the resurrection, all we have is a dead criminal on the cross.

Without the resurrection, we are powerless as Christians.

Without the resurrection, our lives is the same ole, same ole,

Without the resurrection, we cannot walk in the newness of the life God made available to us in Christ.

Without the resurrection, the cross is the central theme of most denominations, oh, wait, death is the central theme of most "Christian" denominations.

1 Corinthians 15:12-22
Now if Christ is preached that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ is not risen. And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty. Yes, and we are found false witnesses of God, because we have testified of God that He raised up Christ, whom He did not raise upif in fact the dead do not rise. For if the dead do not rise, then Christ is not risen. And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins! Then also those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable. But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive.





"God foreknows nothing by contingency, but that he foresees, purposes, and does all things according to his immutable, eternal and infallible will. By this thunderbolt, "free will" is thrown prostrate and utterly dashed to pieces. Those therefore, who would assert "free will," must either deny this thunderbolt, or pretend not to see it, or push it from them." -Martin Luther

"The Church has surrendered her once lofty concept of God and has substituted for it one so low, so ignoble, as to be utterly unworthy of thinking, worshiping men. This she has not done deliberately, but little by little and without her knowledge; and her very unawareness only makes her situation all the more tragic." -A.W. Tozer

"He that has doctrinal knowledge and speculation only, without affection, never is engaged in the business of religion." -Jonathan Edwards

Rom. 6:3 Or don’t you know that all we who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?
Rom. 6:4 We were buried therefore with him through baptism to death, that just like Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we also might walk in newness of life.
Rom. 6:5 For if we have become united with him in the likeness of his death, we will also be part of his resurrection;

Act 3:18 But those things which God foretold by the mouth of all His prophets, that the Christ would suffer, He has thus fulfilled.
Act 3:19 Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord,
Act 3:20 and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before,
Act 3:21 whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began

Php 3:20 But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,
Php 3:21 who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself

Romans 4:25
Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.

1 Corinthians 15:16-17
For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised; and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins.

Sacrifice and enough love and power of a parent to conquer that sacrifice.

a. yes

b. no

if you chose "b", then your post makes sense.

Have you not read that God raised Jesus Christ from the dead?

Jesus Christ was dead for over 72 hours, He would have remained so forever unless he was raised.

You should try reading scripture, instead of making ignorant comments.

Yep. I've read plenty of your posts and you deny that Jesus is God, so to YOU He is just "another man". Therefore, it is YOU who is ignorant, and the resurrection of Jesus does nothing for YOU.

Quote:

Yep, but apparently YOU have not.

John 2:19-22
Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” The Jews then said, “It took forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in three days?” But He was speaking of the temple of His body. So when He was raised from the dead, His disciples remembered that He said this; and they believed the Scripture and the word which Jesus had spoken.

Acts 13:30
But God raised Him from the dead

Absolute proof that Jesus is God.

toldailytopic: What does the resurrection of Christ signify?


The blood bought redeemed, the saved that are in Christ are ... "waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ." Titus 2:13







.....O LORD my God, in You I put my trust. Psalm 7:1
.....To You, O LORD, I lift up my soul.
Psalm 25:1

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~ Leo Buscaglia

2 Corinthians 4:14 - knowing that He who raised up the Lord Jesus will also raise us up with Jesus, and will present us with you.

2 Corinthians 5:14-15 - For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.

2 Corinthians 5:21 - For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

1 Thessalonians 1: 10 - and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come.

I have listed above some verses that illustrate the significance and some of the benefits that result because Jesus died and rose again. Below is a verse that gives instructions on how to receive these benefits. It's very simple:

Romans 10:9 - that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

Bottom line is that Jesus rose from the grave to defeat the power of sin and death that results from it--especially the second death which is separation from God forever. Sin separates us from God. So there had to be an atoning sacrifice to remove the sin. For the solution to be permanent though, Jesus had to defeat death itself.
Romans 6:9 - knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him.

The Resurrection is something that sets Christianity apart from all other religions. Paul has this to say about the importance of the Resurrection.
1 Corinthians 15:14 - And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty.

Religions that do not have the Risen LORD at it their very center have no value, not in this life or next one.
