Many people has gone astray and encamped by what the significance of the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ really means. The significance of the resurrection of Jesus Christ is a big elaborated event that occurred on the cross of Calvary in Jerusalem the capital of Israel over 2000years ago.
The Fall Of Man
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth, at times goes on, God commands the earth to bring forth good tiding including living creatures, by a mere words from his mouth everything became existences. In the Garden of Eden, God impose man (Adam) to name the living thing and supervised them. God saw that it’s not good for a man to lives alone and he hereby creates Eve as helper to Adam. They live happily without blemish and accomplish the fruitfulness of godliness. At the down of the day, God set down from heaven and dwell with man that he has created (Adam and Eve) and impacted them of the things they should do and of things they should not do (Genesis3:8). However, serpent came and convince eve of the things that God had commanded them not to do as she ate the fruit thereof, when Adam came she gave of the fruit to Adam and he ate thereof and this leads to the fall of man in the garden of Eden. Ever since the fall of man, sin became known to every mankind. We can differentiate between the good and the bad but when Adam and Eve has not eaten from the fruit they are like infant baby that know not the good and the bad (Genesis3:7) and the disobedient of man caused God to sent them away from the Garden of Eden. Moreover man continues in sin after they were sent out from the Garden of Eden. And the sin of man became grievous in the sight of God and He wiped the earth away with flood and raise another generation from Noah. The Origin Of Disorderliness “And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech…And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth…so the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of the earth: and they left off to build the city… (Genesis11:1; 4; 8)”
The offspring of Noah (Shem, Ham and Japheth) are of one language and one speech, they decided to build a tower whose top would reach the heaven but God stopped destroy there planned. He scatters their language (people) and scatter their speech; however, the unity among brethren was declined until God raise another man whose name was Abraham; from Abraham to Isaac; from Isaac to Jacob…
Unity Among Brethren
“The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh (Jesus) come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be…Genesis49:10)”
The fall of man introduce the coming of Jesus Christ, in other words the fall of man necessitated the coming of Christ to the world in order to reconcile man to God. He came to the world with human flesh, he preach the gospel for we to believe God still love us after all our trios and tribulations we made toward him. He heal the sick, raise the death, open the eyes of the blind, he heal the leprosy and lot more miracle he performed. During his breath on earth, he live as a perfect and upright man, he live without commit any sin despite He play with the sinners yet he was without blemish.
All prophecies of the Scripture concerning Jesus death and burial were fulfilled to the very letter. Those who crucified Jesus did not know that they were causing the true Passover to be slain, not the type, not the shadow of things to come, but the true Passover. “For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us” (1Corinthians5:7). Jesus was willing to pay the ultimate price despite the bitter cup ahead of him. “And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth” (Philippians2:8-10)
Do You Know Jesus;
“Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made curse for us; for it is written, cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree” Galatians3:13 “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for our’s only, but also for the sins of the whole world” 1John2:2; 3:8. “And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding blood is no remission.’ Hebrews9:22 “But he was wounded for all our transgression, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like a sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all’. Isaiah53:5,6 “And they sung a new song, saying thou art worthy to take the book, and open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by the blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people and nation’ Revelation5:9
The Stages Christ Suffered And Prevailed Before Been Crucified. The stages are of two ways which are as follows: –
- Jesus agonized in prayer at Gethsemane.
- Matthew26:38 – 45;
- Luke22; 40 – 44
- He was able to endure.
- False accusation. Luke23:1, 2, 14 II. Crown of thorns. III. Mockery. IV. Scouring. V. Spitting. Mathew27:27 – 31 VI. Bearing the cross. John19:17
Why Some Jews Does Not Belief In Resurrection Of Jesus Christ?
Brethren, it is written in the bible and well confirmed that the priest and the Pharisees was the persecutor of Jesus Christ, but the priest nailed him by persecuting him to an extent of buried the truth of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. “And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave a large money unto the soldiers, Saying, say ye, His disciple came by night, and stole him away while we slept. And if come to the governor’s ears, we will persuaded him, and secure you. So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly reported among Jews until these days”. (Mathew27:12-15)
There is a man, who commits sin, and they brought him to where he was to be killed and however a man stood up and said set him free and replaces me with him. That is what Jesus did to us. We are the sinner for a day that a child is born became a sinner, He died for our sin…what can we use to compensate him for all he had done for us? Let surrender our life to Jesus for he is the king of kings and Lord of lords, moreover remember he is not dead he has risen. Do you still remember the parable of the sewer in St. Mark 4; 1 – 20? God is expecting us to do likewise; let sow in the good ground where our portion will yield exceedingly. Sow the seed of life today by sharing this to the world, using all sort of social media means in broadcasting till all the earth get read.
Thanks for reading. May God Bless You!
