10 Facts About the Resurrection of Jesus Christ

Messiah was dead. Messiah was buried. Messiah was gone.

And let me just stop right there. Could it be there's something dead, buried and gone in your life? (One or two of you are tearing up right now?)

Listen. Nothing is ever dead, nothing is ever buried, nothing is ever gone with Christ still on the throne of the universe. And He is! (Revelation 1:18)

It all comes down to the resurrection. It's what separates Christianity from all other religions ~ the empty tomb. It's what separates Jesus from all other religious leaders ~ the empty tomb.

You have hope today. (Yes, I'm talking to you.) And the disciples would have had it, too, that day long ago after Crucifixion Friday and before Easter Sunday if they'd listened to the words of Jesus and believed in who He was. (Luke 24:25-26)

Listen again. God has a habit of bringing life out of death. (It's a great habit.) He raised Jesus from the dead. (He is risen indeed!) God can (and will!) bring life out of death whatever it might happen to be that concerns you. (Who needed to hear it?)

May your faith be encouraged by the following list and may it help you to trust the Lord and wait for His timing...

10 Facts About the Resurrection of Jesus Christ:

1. It happened! (Matthew 28:5-6)
2. It was unexpected. (John 20:1-18)
3. Many appearances proof of it. (1 Corinthians 15:1-8)
4. Our Lord predicted it. (John 2:19; Mark 8:31)
5. It was foretold in the Psalms. (Psalm 16:10-11; Acts 13:34-35)
6. The Trinity was involved. (Acts 2:24; John 10:17-18; Romans 8:11)
7. It was proclaimed by the apostles. (Acts 2:32; 3:15)
8. It transforms the worst of sinners. (Acts 25:19; 1 Timothy 1:15)
9. Belief in it is the starting point of faith. (Romans 10:9b)
10. Christianity is worthless without it. (1 Cor 15:17)

Beatiful post. Without the resurrection our faith is void. What sadens me is so many call it easter. Why not call it Resurrection Sunday? As believers we certainly don't place our faith in easter but in the power of a risen Messiah! This should be fact/ myth #11 :)
