Let's join Pastor Paul for today's Destin for victory message.
The reality of the resurrection.
Romans 323 all the glory of God. So Jesus came into the world as the one person who could redeem us why good man. He was the God he was born a woman, but born not of a man. See conceived by the Holy Spirit. So he was born of a virgin. That's the first doctrine of importance related to Christ that will save you the second Capt. the word Christ, the anointed one is that he lived a sinless life of Jesus and that he could not be atonement for your sins and mine because he got his own since the get covered Jesus.
The Bible says 21 Paul said he was amazed, and who knew no that we might be made the righteousness of God in him on the cross God. The greatest exchange ever.
He put all of your sins and mine on Jesus Lamb of God, even on the covenant. Remember when the high priest sacrifice on behalf of the people had to be without spot or blemish. When Jesus on the cross. God knew no sin became rainfall about all I don't know about you but that gets me happy all future on him and on the cross, God accepted his sacrifice of his son and as a result of that. The Bible says you when I sin now have had this upon us the righteousness of God. When you stand before the Lord one day you will stand on the basis of who you are. You stand on the basis of who Jesus is. So Paul says we in Christ, what does that mean you have the believe in the birds and birds in the sinless life, believe in his substitutionary or vicarious death believe that when Jesus died because he did anything wrong died because you and I were sinners who needed to be saved and so the first reports of important doctrine related to Jesus Christ all that he live a sinless life, and that he died of vicarious or substitutionary death.
Look at what else Paul says that he makes these five points about the central doctrine related to Christ. He says he died for our sins according to the Scriptures in verse four said that he was buried, and that he was away on the third day according to the Scripture that the other two.
He was born in the slide number four is likely Barry when you read the gospel record you find out that a man named Joseph said I don't want that holy man to be buried in disgrace.
He was a wealthy man. He had bought time and he said I am going to give to holy man know he was given this, Jesus only made it for the weekend to get back Monday morning. Sunday we can meet a long-term lease rental somebody day Sunday and then the Bible says God raised him believe in his goal burial. Jesus died physically. That's the theory. Some religions trying their best to keep Jesus from being God. Well apparently he didn't really he just won't he just passed out and maybe had a low pulse rate one know the Bible says that can't be so. Because the soldiers were charged with the responsibility of making sure all three people on the cross that day and they said he's already go and not only that but they brought him down. They wrapped him up to three days. The one day in the Bible says he was physically buried in the fifth thing and the thing that Paul is really getting to as he sets the record straight here is that on the third day he wrote God raised him from the dead thing that makes Christianity eternally disdained from any religious belief that causes you to be by what we believe is that we don't holy man risen Savior. The Bible says Jesus rose from the day and that's where a lot of people say and I think that's where we have to part company with which to work with you Christian but that's what we have to part company because Jesus is well pleased. And if you can afford it. I would encourage you to get a copy of because it makes the case so tight that the doctrine of the direction is not just against every other religions were, but the resurrection of Jesus Christ but didn't show so much evidence that Lee talks about leaving the world's greatest attorney in terms of how many cases he's one was given the responsibility to examine the resurrection and the sea were legally defensible. The conclusion that this man reached was not only that it is legally the principal but back when the case under any circumstance is simply the object could be laid out. Let me give you points that are expounded in Lee's book.
I don't have the time to do anything but mention them very briefly, but he of course lays it out in detail in this wonderful account. He's proof of the resurrection. He stands for only accounts only accounts that is to say the Bible talks about the resurrection account were not talking about something that only a bald idea, decades or centuries later but the people who are Christ's contemporaries all not only for his death and his burial. But the Bible talks about how early we received the formation that he will morning that he will began to be spring that Jesus is alive. He talked about the accounts.
The second is the empty tomb. Jesus wears his body whereas his body all the centuries I could've done anything with no people could not let people believe that he will use the Jewish establishment of best interest in making sure Jesus was known to be the body and up and down the streets said see that he they couldn't do it.
You know why because he is not the hero is a an evidential stay with us for only about halfway through today's destined for victory message with pastor Paul Sheppard. We want to thank all of you whose prayers and financial support help pastor Paul share the gospel all over the world is uncertainty still lingers here in America and around the world.

Contrary to what many may think the evidence for the resurrection of Christ is overwhelming.
The most convincing pieces of that evidences the empty tomb is pastor Paul with the rest of today's message. The reality of the resurrection stands for eyewitness testimony. Now this is what sealed the deal for sure right here in this text Paul says Jesus resurrection was proven by the people who thought what you focus on, you know, in today's world of crime can be established by the testimony of a single witness. Ideally two or three because a single person said that with him if there is no doubt that was him that Mark saw that Mark that was him and on the word of a single witness now single witness can be wrong and back were finding out now would be evolution of DNA science and what have you. There are people being exonerated because the evidence of proving that they were misidentified by witness. So you say well we can take the word of the witness we getting to be mistaken. When asked why Paul said. Not only did the first people who showed up at the tomb discovered that he was alive, but then he said don't tell my disciples and Peter singled out Peter because Peter had denied him thought he was disqualified. But Jesus said, I just disqualified you the first time you do some wrong tell somebody who's sitting here feeling disqualified that Jesus spent too much on the call this qualify what you doing me my life. You will Jesus will you so he said don't tell my disciples and Peter to meet me. The Bible says he will see not only by Mary but then he was seen by the 12th, then the Bible says he also was seen by hundred hundred people show up on the witness list. He was alive all over 500 people.
It's an airtight case in the Bible says that there was eyewitness testimony and then the key that talks about in his book is the emergence of the church.
He simply makes a valid point that the charge in March that have survived all of these centuries all kinds of unspeakable persecution because we knew that we were so risen Christ else would do something just for their belief system that people like just what they believe, we see that happening today as well lay down their life just because of their belief system. Anybody living what they believe. While the charge for what it's going through, not because of what we believe, but because of the living one that we serve. That's why the church is and will always be the most outstanding. The most curious.
The most mind-boggling organization in the world because we are people living God, a living Savior.
Not only lives with us said he walks with me talks with me and tell me that I am his own noise alive. I just talked to and he speaks to us any leaves of spirit and he's changing on and so Paul says this is a doctrine of first importance that you believe in the resurrection of Christ and of course what he does is goes on for verses 12 all the way down to about 34 to make the point that it Christ is risen in all that we're doing at all that we believe is in vain. It is important that we understand that Christianity is not a religion in the ultimate sense of the relationship with the living Savior. It's a relationship living Savior and he wraps up this whole force of chapter 15 by saying that's why you gotta be careful who you hang out with.
He said in verse 33.
Bad company corrupts good character. When you believe and walk with the living Savior, you can walk with everybody else. By the message of the resurrection, and by the empty tomb until they cannot stand or walk with you, my friend, don't be surprised as you walk with Christ that the crowd thins out God has to bring along those who walk with him as well walk with you and that's why we gotta learn to be unified in the body of Christ is all said and done, where all each other because if you haven't notice it does a very subtle form of persecution in today's America. When not being overly persecuted and the way that many of our brothers in other parts of the world are being persecuted but just watch us in America. They are slowly turning up the heat they are making everything else acceptable except the empty tomb on the shoulder and just spout this series stop and what they believe. Somebody's bought into somebody's mystic religions now because we want to watch him interviewed and set up and talk about believing in somewhere some spaceship came down and was very interesting. What you get on the show and talk about. I believe that Jesus is alive that he's going to judge both the living and the dead. So we need to get our lives in order we have to go to commercial break is a bad company grows.
Good character and verse 34 not wrap it up.
He says come back to your senses as you talk and stop sinning, for there are some who are ignorant of God. My brothers and sisters since we believe that which is first importance.
How diligent we be about the way we live our lives because we know that one day this Christ will judge the living and the what would you do differently if you knew that the Lord were going to call you home later today what people do you have to get something straight with what apologies do you need to offer what you need to repent of what actions do you need to denounce.
The Bible says Paul says come to your senses. We are serving a risen Savior, full of grace and truth, but don't see John living in the bed. He says so because after sitting stop living like you are your own God and come to understand that you, Lord one day and said to him, for the life you live. The Bible says this is a very real thing that it is appointed once the everyman did not help that you don't have to be sick not to be sick.I John and I take all the right abide with you can jog into the health store. Come on, come on now that's no guarantee that healthy people die. Just drop due to a guide to be sick to go and look at this great so Only my business got the wheel after drinking all day so you into eternity name on it in your direction, some traffic accident happened.
