The Resurrected Christ Revealed   1 comment

Rev. 1, 18

1.  Life and death a mystery.  Left to himself man knows nothing of the future–he needs a revelation of it.

2.  Christians everywhere believe in a blissful immortality–they preach it, sing of it, rejoice in sorrow because of it.  There must be some foundation for it.

3.  That foundation is Christ’s own resurrection.  Friend and foe said he did.

(1)  Foes exulted.

(2)  Friends despaired.  Had he remained in the grave all would have abandoned Him forever.

(3)  But he arose.  He could not be holden of death.  He is the Son of God and all powers are subject to his power.  He arises victor forever.  Lies now are the only refuge of his foes.  With him the church arises.

4.  How may I know he arose?

(1)  By the fact of the Spirit’s presence.

(2)  By personal knowledge as in the text.

(3)  By Christian testimony in life & death.

(4)  By the spiritual resurrection of others.

5.  He has the keys of death & the grave.  He unlocked death’s door forever.  “Because I live ye shall live also.”  He is our humanity.  His resurrection is the pledge of that  of all.
