He Is Risen! Easter, 2018

THE RESURRECTION

 Matthew 28: 6-7a   He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay; 7aAnd go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead;

Matthew 20: 28 28Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

Matthew 26: 28 28For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

John 16: 28 28I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.

John 16:10 10Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;

1 Peter 3:18 18For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:

Hebrews 9: 28 28So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

Romans 1:3-4 3Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; 4And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:

Romans 6: 4  4Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life;

Romans 6: 9 9Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.

Romans 8: 11 11But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

John 11: 25 25 kjv Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

2 Corinthians 13:4  4For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you.

Revelation 1:18 18I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

Matthew Henry Commentary: (Acts 13:32-37) “The resurrection of Christ was the great proof of His being the Son of God. It was not possible he should be held by death, because He was the Son of God, and therefore had life in Himself, which He could not lay down but with a design to take it again. The sure mercies of David are that everlasting life, of which the resurrection was a sure pledge; and the blessings of redemption in Christ are a certain earnest, even in this world.

David was a great blessing to the age wherein he lived. We were not born for ourselves, but there are those living around us, to whom we must study to be serviceable. Yet here is the difference; Christ was to serve all generations. May we look to Him who is declared to be the Son of God by His resurrection from the dead, that by faith in Him we may walk with God, and serve our generation according to His will; and when death comes, may we fall asleep in Him, with a joyful hope of a blessed resurrection.”

Matthew 28: 18-20 18And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world–Amen!
