I invite you to visit our website at Baptist Bible Howard Dr. court where you can hear a number of messages and if you would like to contribute for the support of this program to help us stay on the air during these difficult times. You can make a donation email@example.com testimony so many witnesses to testify at a given case. Here is complete conference in the report that Jesus Christ came out of the grave, of whom the greater part remain under this present much of a fallen asleep he was seen of James man of all the apostles and last of all, he was seen of me. Also 14 Jesus Christ revealed himself to the apostle Paul, the third heaven, he saw Jesus Christ leave Paul knew it because he had seen it himself. He purchased this wonderful truth declaring this church as an essential a very fundamental principle of our faith.
In verse 12 now if Christ be preached, that he rose from the dead cow same some of you that there is no resurrection of the name. But if there be no resurrection of the then Christ is not reason.
And if Christ be not reason that our preaching is playing and your faith is vain. Also brand. If Jesus Christ can come out of the grave. We are just going through an empty ceremony here today.
There's no real reason to be assembled in this place Christianity means absolutely nothing. If Christ did not come out of the great yeah and we are found false witnesses of God, because we've testified of God that he raised Christ, whom he raised.
Not if so be that the dead rise not for Internet rise not use not price ranges. And if Christ be not raised, your faith is blaming you and your sin and salvation of Christ was if he was not the Redeemer. If he was not the victorious Savior over sin and death itself. We have no man may also which are fallen asleep in Christ part.
If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable I've heard some right refute that Christianity is a great religion. And so even if there isn't anything afterward. It is good pop bottles and if in this life only we have a whole lot better. On the other side, we are of all men most miserable is Christ risen from the man can become the firstfruits of them actually because of his resurrection. The resurrection of this people is absolutely assured. Paul tells us in writing to the church at Thessalonica when Jesus Christ comes back and the trumpet sounds of the dead in Christ shall rise first. And they which are allowed to be called together the meeting in the clouds and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Oh, right. That gives us the one I can say in that passage versus phone is 418 wherefore comfort one another with these words, you want to the graveside and see the body of your loved one Lord in the earth. What despair that would be what a dark dismal time to think this is the end.
There is nothing on the other side when there's been evidence that that one was touched for the grace of God. They died as a believer in Jesus Christ the Savior you have that precious hope that there will be a reunion in heaven. The great thing about heaven is not just there to see our loved ones and friends want to be with Jesus and to be with him forever. But one of wonderful blessing to know that Jesus Christ is the firstfruits of them that slept afterward say that he is coming when he comes back all of those that he purchased a conference call shall be raised from the dead, glorified, conformed to his image to live with forever and ever. We see that these angels deliver a message of comfort, a comforting message change there's always fear when the heavenly messenger is present, the administrative earthquake. The angel of the Lord was present just how much was like lightning, and his raiment was white as snow depicting the very truth of God's holiness that this message of the comes from heaven has a white raiment and his scalp was like lightning can imagine what these women were stricken with fear for the fear of him. The keepers did shake the man that had been appointed to guard the tomb and be sure that his disciples didn't steal the body away.
Hey work with fear, they begin to shake me this past completely could not function.
They were they were stricken with with with sphere to see an angel in this for what is income say brings good news know the same thing. This is truly concerning the birth of Jesus. Chapter 2 in verse nine exceptional the angel of the Lord came upon them and the glory of the Lord shone round about them and they were sore afraid. The angel of the Lord appears there's this fear. They are there terribly afraid.
Same thing every moment when God shut out the sun and there should tremendous momentous occasion.
It will look nothing like it, and the centurion that stood there stricken with fear at what he saw and made to realize how extraordinary this whole event was indeed he wants some sphere to see the display of God's power.
So we see it at the birth of Jesus we see in at Calvary. We see it here at the tomb, but the message is a message of comfort in spite of the fact that the shepherds were gripped with fear.
When the angel appeared look at what the angel had to say an angel sent them, fear not for behold I bring you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all people were under you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord had come to harm not come from heaven to bring the best news all that the Savior is born. This is a time of rejoicing at Calvary by those that witness the biking out of the son of the shaking of the earth and trouble to their own souls. Good news came from the cross.
Jesus Christ had to work before he finished it in every detail of the father giving to do here he had paid the price he secured his people. He purchased them with his own precious blood in here at the two when the women are afraid the angel speak words of comfort. Fear not, he be afraid. This Jesus whom you come to see it is not here, he's alive. He is reason and you can rejoice that he lives find words of comfort being given at the time that the Savior ascended after his resurrection was 40 days later when they were standing out on the mountain and according to acts chapter 1 verse which also said the men of Galilee, why standing here gazing up into heaven.
The same Jesus, which was taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as you have seen him go into heaven. Extended amazement as a slick lift off the ground and he ascends to the clouds. But once the good news. What's the message that the angel brings the same Jesus into single life is gonna come back and that's good news for us today is not certain. It was good news.
When the angel said the Savior is born good news when they go and find an empty tomb, and the angel says he lives exclusively CMS stands on the mountain to heaven itself, and the angel reported he is coming back dismal outlook. It would be if we fail to some say that the grave into the hall was a life beyond because we know that Jesus Christ is the living Savior.
He is coming back and even at the present time. Hebrews chapter 7 verse 25 tells us that he lives to make intercession for us and not good to know when you see yourself see your failings to the place it periodically just plain old disgusted with her repeated failures say good I possibly believe that God would hear my prayer. You need somebody to speak on your behalf.
You need someone to intercede and Jesus Christ is that intercessor so we come boldly to the throne of grace, we confess our sins to him and his policies that when we confess our sins he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Think of having one of the right hand of God interested in you willing to hear your cry willing to plead your case is make intercession for us is coming back, but even now he intercedes for his people, and then we see here the joyful response over there was still some apprehension that was there was there was still some fear on the part of these women to me that this this whole thing without unfolding so rapidly seeing an angel seeing Jesus trying to comprehend the fact that he's come out of the grave. There was some fear that they had found.
But the angel says you need not fear now this whole scenario was also declared by Jesus in the 16th chapter of the Gospel of John, verse 20, very saying to you that ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice. Jesus is a time is coming. He was looking obviously to his crucifixion, you will weep and lament know how they did weep what rank sorrow they experienced about. They lived with this man Jesus for three years they witnessed his miracles, they said in his feet.
He's been there teacher he's been there friend they so I'm feed 5000 that show I'm raise Lazarus from the dead. What what a Savior years. But what a marvelous master and Lord, to whom they're committed then to see him taken away the train but one of his own followers see him hanging on the cross, suffering in such agony, even his own mother stands nearby and watches this terracing.
They were lamenting. Fact is there perplexed their discouraged confused I feel hopeless, but the world is going rejoice because the English of the Savior are delighted we remove him. We got rid of this false prophet when we went we won't see were on the way there, rejoicing. But you shall be shut off but your sorrow shall be turned to joy though grave at the moment, though you this fan of seeing the software on the cross your son to be turned into joy.
And now that heavy burden that they have carried is being lifted that deep grief that has turned our soul is being transformed to see that the one that I am severely have. He wasn't conquered by death, Jesus and you can see that displayed in this 24th chapter of the Gospel of Luke so vividly.
Jesus joins these two disciples who are on the road to Emmaus. They were very sad. They were talking to each other about the horrible things that are transpired, how deeply dejected they were how Heather hopes and dreams have been shattered. But Jesus comes along begins to converse with mingle, recognizing, and they were amazed that that doesn't even seem to know about these events that have recently taken place is if you're got such a string to hear that you will even know all that been going on. Verse 25 then he said of them old fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets of spoken ought not Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into his glory. What's watching you notice in each of these cases when God's people are given reassurance. There is constant reference to the Scriptures, even the angel said you need to remember what Jesus said and Jesus is saying here, how is it that you believe what the prophets of spoken your reassurance or confirmation of this thing comes from the fact that the Scriptures are being fulfilled and beginning at Moses and all the profits he expounded on them all the Scriptures the things concerning himself, Jesus.
Most of the Old Testament. It takes the words of the prophet detects the law.
He takes it takes the solemn and he shows in all of that which spoke of him. Oh yes, there have been great sorrow, but now verse 31.
Their eyes were opened and they knew him, and as soon as I knew him he vanished out of her sight and they said one to another, did not burn within us while he talked with us. By the way, and father Scriptures were open to us as we traveled with couldn't comprehend what was about but this was a unique stranger to say the least. As he talked to us as you begin to open up the Scriptures hearts didn't burn within us. There sorrow is now turned in to joy.
They delight to know that he's alive. Verse 34. The angel and said the Lord is risen indeed brought the angel and spoken to them and now they're saying the Lord is risen indeed and has appeared to Simon and told us what things were done in the way how he was known of them in breaking of bread and as a Las Vegas Jesus himself self stood in the midst of them, and set under them. Peace be unto you, but they were terrified and frightened, and supposedly axing the spirit and he said to them, quietly troubled, and what are your thoughts arise in your heart to hold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself handle me and see if our spirit hath not flesh and bones as you see me, he gives them absolute total confirmation that he is the reason living Savior.
Yes, it was a joyful response when that message was proclaimed and Shirley. The message of the gospel is a message that brings good news to respond to it. Respond when you hear the news concerning Jesus Christ being crucified any doubt that he was buried, and that he arose from the deity, rejoicing that you rejoice with the apostle. As he says in first of the chapter 1 verse 15 this is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation the Christ Jesus came in the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief persons once convicted of their sins seeing their absolute failure in the sight of a holy God. The question may well be raise with God mercifully phoned me what he saying such a rebel as I've been we say one who has sinned so blatantly one who is been so full of pride. Would he save me and the good news is he came to save Sen. Paulson on the cheapest of them all had to be saved made him save lesser centers with their baby, but I think that all of those who see themselves going with opossum psycho. I think I'm the chief I'm the greatest of sectors and I stand amazed at his sovereign mercy says in Romans chapter 4 verse 25 but he was raised for our justification. We were unjust. We needed to be justified. We needed for things to be made right between us and God, to be reconciled to human by him being raised from the dead, we find justification in him. First Peter chapter 1 verse three says, Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy has begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ. This new birth is yours because Jesus Christ believes he has begotten us, but because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. What joy the gospel brings you struggle sometimes feeling hopeless old excuses. We sometimes hear the mother says I fear that my faith is weak about asset. I fear that my experience doesn't compare with what others have had the money and says II guess I just can't believe that he will even save me limited in this. If you have seen yourself as a bankrupt center at a been blessed by faith believe in Jesus Christ you have the evidence that he has redeemed you and called you by his sovereign mercy. Then we see the action taken by these women, when they met p.m. When Jesus met them on the way tells us the 28th chapter the book of Matthew in verse nine, Jesus met them saying all hail and they came and held him back his feet and worshiped him, worshiped him, and Jesus out of them. Be not afraid.
Go tell my brother is a Jesus Christ is not just a great example to be followed. All here's the greatest of all examples, but there are those who will admit it was a great example that failed to understand he was God in the flesh I talked to people as know is a great teacher think it was an outstanding prophet, but he was not God brands this morning were not talking about him only as a great teacher and a great example with talking about him as being God in the flesh, God is to be worshiped and these women worshiped, you can just imagine what a transformation after their hearts being so heavy being so distraught, so disturbed so discouraged and now I see he's alive and can pick Matt out and worship. He's not God, he's my Lord he's my Savior.
He is my salvation that is coming today. According to Philippians chapter 2 verses 9 to 10 that every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God to take great courage and that we see more and more in our culture today. Resentment against the gospel of Jesus Christ. In many classrooms in many institutions across the country today. The details of any religion can be discussed. The name of any God can be mentioned.
Prayer can be offered to any deity, but as soon as the name Jesus Christ is mentioned man's anger and wrath is kindled and he's rejected. Isaiah 53 said he was despised and rejected of man, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. In short, they do so today.
But there is coming a day that every knee will bow every stubborn crown pharisaic and self-righteous antagonist will bow and safe. Jesus Christ is Lord, but what about you that you bowed to him. Have you been made to see that this Savior who died but is now this Savior, who came from heaven to put away sin to be the perfect sacrifice to save sinners because they could not see themselves. You've seen McKim is the only hope. The only remedy for your fallen malls doing state where else could you turn upon us to believe upon him via CM as the Savior see that he is alive today he lands in your trusting in him. John chapter 3 and 36 verse says he that believe on the son hath everlasting life. The believer, we believe if you've never bound by your bow before him today. If you have a consistent and Lord and Savior make a confession today to rejoice in the good news of the gospel. Jesus Christ died, was buried as the apostle says of the Clinton letter.
According to the Scriptures. Now he's come out of the grave and that's the good news we bring today, Jesus Christ the Savior is God help all of us to rejoice in the in the good news of the gospel in the glory and greatness of our risen Lord. Anticipating that time when he comes back again and she you see all you wonderful Savior we have.
Jesus Christ came to save his people from their sins.
Went to the cross suffered on their behalf, came out of the great victorious reins on the high today. It is to him that we look for all of the resources necessary to get through the difficulties and trials of life and to anticipate that happy day, one will find the home with him.
I hope that you were right her son until next week.
At the same time with the Lord richly bless you all. The Baptist Bible.
