He is alive forever He is alive my Jesus is alive forever is alive amen x2. // Serving the Living God, yes am serving the Living God Amen!
Faithful Father, we Thank You for the resurrection of Lord Jesus Christ. Thank You for the grave did not held Him bound but the quickening power that raised Christ from death. Christ is risen; the tomb is empty. Praise the Lord!!!
Beloved, are you celebrating the Risen Lord? Are you rejoicing that your Saviour is alive? Praise be the Name of the Lord who overcome the power of death and its pangs and grant us victory and freedom.
Am glad that Jesus is risen, am so glad that my liberty is found in Him. Are you rejoicing with me dearly beloved? What else can guarantee our freedom except that we know that Jesus is the Risen Lord. Praise the Lord forever and ever!!!
The Risen Lord
His head and hair were white like wool—white as snow, His eyes like a fiery flame,
His feet like fine bronze fired in a furnace, and His voice like the sound of cascading waters.—Revelation 1:14–15
At times it is tempting to conclude: “If only I could have walked with Jesus, as the twelve disciples did, it would be so much easier to live the Christian life!” This thought reveals that we do not comprehend the greatness of the risen Christ we serve today. The Jesus of the Gospels is often portrayed as One who walked along the seashore, loving children and gently forgiving sinners.
Yet the image of Jesus that we see at the close of the New Testament is far more dramatic! He stands in awesome power as He rules all creation. His appearance is so magnificent that when John, His beloved disciple, sees Him, he falls to the ground as though he were dead (Rev. 1:17).
We grossly underestimate the God we serve! To ignore God’s word or to disobey a direct command from Him is to ignore the magnificent nature of Christ. Our fear of other people proves that we do not understand the awesome Lord who walks with us. The Christ we serve today is the Lord of all creation. He is vastly more awesome and powerful than the gentle rabbi we often imagine.
If you struggle with your obedience to Christ, take a closer look at how He is portrayed in the Book of Revelation. If you are succumbing to temptation, call upon the powerful One who dwells in you. If you have forgotten how great and mighty the Lord is, meet Him through the vision of the beloved disciple. The encounter will dramatically affect the way you live!
We professed the Risen Christ, who the power of the grave could not hold back but He is risen. He overcame death, sickness is destroyed, sorrows was overcome by our risen Lord and our sins were wipe away having being numbered among the sinners. Join me as we discover this great substitution:
“He was numbered with the transgressors.” Isaiah 53:12
Why did Jesus suffer Himself to be enrolled amongst sinners? This wonderful condescension was justified by many powerful reasons. In such a character He could the better become their advocate. In some trials there is an identification of the counsellor with the client, nor can they be looked upon in the eye of the law as apart from one another.
Now, when the sinner is brought to the bar, Jesus appears there Himself. He stands to answer the accusation. He points to His side, His hands, His feet, and challenges Justice to bring anything against the sinners whom He represents; He pleads His blood, and pleads so triumphantly, being numbered with them and having a part with them, that the Judge proclaims, “Let them go their way; deliver them from going down into the pit, for He hath found a ransom.” Our Lord Jesus was numbered with the transgressors in order that they might feel their hearts drawn towards Him.
Who can be afraid of one who is written in the same list with us? Surely we may come boldly to Him, and confess our guilt. He who is numbered with us cannot condemn us. Was He not put down in the transgressor’s list that we might be written in the red roll of the saints? He was holy, and written among the holy; we were guilty, and numbered among the guilty; He transfers His name from yonder list to this black indictment, and our names are taken from the indictment and written in the roll of acceptance, for there is a complete transfer made between Jesus and His people.
All our estate of misery and sin Jesus has taken; and all that Jesus has comes to us. His righteousness, His blood, and everything that He hath He gives us as our dowry. Rejoice, believer, in your union to Him who was numbered among the transgressors; and prove that you are truly saved by being manifestly numbered with those who are new creatures in Him.
The death of our Lord Jesus did not only delivered us from the works of iniquities but it also made us a new creature. Isn’t that wonderful? His death brought salvation to us and reconcile us back to our Father whose desire is to have continual fellowship with His children! Glory be to God in the highest.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
