Matthew 28:6 KJV “He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay”.
When the women who were going to embalm the body of Jesus, got to the tomb! they were told by the angel that Jesus was risen. The resurrection of our Lord Jesus is a cardinal truth in Christianity that makes Christianity unique among all religions. His death and resurrection. have very significant implications for the salvation of men. Romans 4:25 reads ” Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.” He died to carry away our sins but His resurrection gave us the same resurrected life that had no past of sin. The scripture said, He was raised for our justification. Justification means to be made righteous.
The Lord’s passion was done for us. Every experience throughout His passion was for us. He did it in our stead, so that we would live in absolute victory. The moment one believes in Jesus, then, supernaturally he is immersed (baptized) into Christ. Romans 6:3-5. Rom 6:3 KJV” Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? “Just as we have been immersed or baptized into His death, so have we been baptized into His resurrection. The power of death, giving rise to sin and all its effects no longer have that control over us. We have the same resurrected life like Jesus. Romans 6:5 KJV” For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:”
Why are many Christians living defeated lives? To lead a defeated life, I mean to be under the power and influence of evil powers. This is seen in manifesting bad habits, fearfulness, all kinds of torments. All these are unacceptable in the light of our resurrection with Jesus. If any man be in Christ, he is a new creation, old things have passed away, behold all things have become new.
What must the believer in Jesus do?
1. Spend a great deal of time to meditate on the effects of our resurrection with Jesus.1 Tim 4:15
2. Accept and Believe that you are absolutely victorious, and should not be under any form of control or influence of the evil one Rom 8:37
3.Refuse any form of defeat or failure
4. Thank the Lord for making you more than a conqueror.
I died with Jesus and have resurrected with Him. I have His resurrection life in me. Demons, diseases or sinful tendencies cannot hold their sway over me. I am indeed very free from every power of the devil.
