Luke 24:1-7 “ Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.
2 And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.
3 And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.
4 And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:
5 And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?
6 He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,
7 Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again”.
It all ended on the day that the Lord gave up the ghost, when He said it was done!
That was the end of it all, it was the same as the student who completed her final exam the day she dropped her grade.
And the Lord on Friday, that was the end of all His trials, the end of all His work, So the end of His trials was the beginning of our deliverance! And our Honor!.
On that day he finished all he had to do; pain, distress, misery, and everything! That was the end there… he set a worldwide record of being a mortal man without sinning!
And prove before God that man can live without sin, all his life unto death, and that is why the scripture says’ he is being made so much better than the angels.
Hebrews 1:4 “BEING MADE SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE ANGELS, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they”.
It means that no angel was ever perfect like him.
Many do not know that the angels were tempted as we are, and there were winners and the losers also, the winners are the ones in heaven now, and the losers are the ones who are on the side of Satan.
So among the winners are also different levels, some who have done better than others.
we humans do not know which angels did better than the others, perhaps we will know when we get there when we are given glorious bodies to look like them.
Now among those angels who did well,..No one has done better than our Lord Jesus Christ when he was here on earth.
And because God is impartial, whoever does good, will receive the greatest reward. So because the Lord who was human but did better than all the angels in heaven then God gave him a name that no man or angel has ever had since the world was created.
And above all things were given to him in heaven and on earth, that every knee should bow before him!.
You will say where is it written in the Bible? Well it is written somewhere read..
Philipians 2:5 “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, AND GIVEN HIM A NAME WHICH IS ABOVE EVERY NAME:
10 That at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE SHOULD BOW, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father”. (KJV)
And because we have believed in him. We become his brothers and sisters, so he will not be able to let us down,
We must also possess with him, the angels will be subject to us because he is above all angels right now, and we are saved to be with him.
It’s like a man fights to gets a presidential position, and after earning it, obviously, his family members will in one way or another come to the palace freely, without many obstacles than if he were not President.
and that’s just because they’re his blood relatives! and not much else..The average person can not approach him that way.
So does the Lord Jesus in His righteousness that has given him all authority in heaven and on earth, and given all authority and sat on the throne,
Now we, his brethren who are born again (and who are humans and not angels) cannot cast us out, he will rule with us.
That is why there is a great need to be a blood brother of our Lord Jesus Christ (and we only become like that by born again)
Because there is no way to approach Him if we are not born again through His blood !!. Only blood will connect us with him.
Remember not by the blood of man but by his blood!, not by the will of the man but by the will of God.
many are doing good things and saying by my actions I must see God, my brother do not be deceived…
You can do better deeds than any Christian in the world and still not approach God at all… why is it? The simple answer is because you are not the blood brother of the person Jesus, so your good deeds are in vain!
My brother, if you are a Muslim, read this message, or a Christian who is not yet familiar with the authority of the Lord Jesus and the criteria for being an heir with him, and you say in your heart I help the needy, I respect the parents, I do not steal, I do not do this and that… and you are deceiving yourself that you are close to God while you have put Christ behind…
If you are not born again in His blood, let me tell you my brother/sister YOU ARE LOST !!!!.. Your actions are good but they won’t help you in the future if you are not born again.
It is the same as going to do your best for all you know to your boss and pleasing him, by all means, hoping that one day he will give you his company!!.. will he do that? passing by his child (his own blood) and give it to you? … even if his son does not behave like you, even if you are a better worker than his son, one day that child will just become your boss regardless of all his weaknesses … why? Because of the blood relationship between the child and his father !! nothing more!..You don’t have blood relationaship that connect you with your boss, in order to give you his possession above any other man.
And so is the Kingdom of Heaven; that is why the kingdom of heaven is called inheritance, it require blood to get the right of inheriting..
Remember also that the kingdom of heaven did not begin on the day that the Lord Jesus was crucified,
the kingdom of heaven existed before the creation of the world;
So what will happen is inheritance, where the children of God will inherit it, and the children of God are all who believe in Jesus Christ and receive him by being born again.
John 1: 12 “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name”
So, my brother, this day (the Day of the Lord Resurrection). It is a very important day, when the Lord visits many people in the world to give them salvation make sure he does not pass you.
If you are not born again, this is a great time to do so…
How will you be born again?…
The Bible has given us the answers, that we can never go back into our mother’s womb and be born again !! ..
Being born again is a spiritual language, which means to be renewed in your spiritual life, that is to be transformed into another being in your spiritual direction.
That is what it means to be born again. We say the Tanganyika Nation was born in 1961, which does not mean it went into its mother’s womb and was born
No! But it is only a language that means, that it was democratically renewed and become a sovereign independent state in that year.
And so is it in the Christian Faith,
when you are renewed mentally by divine power, you are born again.
And there are a few steps to regeneration…
John 3:3 ‘There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again’
So the steps to follow to be born again after believing in the Lord Jesus Christ as the Savior of the world, and that He is the One who conquered everything, and was entrusted with all the powers of heaven and earth,
The next step is to be baptized(Full immersed) in the water and in His name (Jesus Christ), as a symbol of death and resurrection with Christ, (that is the birth of the water the Lord was talking about).
And after you have been baptized correctly, The Lord Himself will give you the gift of his Holy Spirit in you who will help you overcome sin, and guide you in the full knowledge of the Scriptures, and protect you from the evil one, (and that also is the birth of the Spirit the Lord was talking about).
Now when you complete those three steps, namely BELIEVING, BEING BAPTIZED IN WATER, AND BEING BAPTIZED IN THE HOLY SPIRIT … You will already be born again, and become a new creature, and you are the son of God, the heir of his promises.
2Corinthians 5:17 “old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new”
You become a blood brother/sister of OUR JESUS CHRIST… You become the heir of God’s wealth, no one can sue you from then on, and no one can separate you from his love…
Brother! At present we do not know the heritage well enough, we know in part only! But after this life is over, then when we shall enjoy God in fullness, we shall know Him broad and long. We will receive the riches he has stored for us and the honor he has bestowed on us, through his beloved son JESUS CHRIST.
It is my prayer that in this Easter season, You will realize what you are supposed to do in your life, and you will also make good and wise choices and may the Lord help you in Jesus Name. Amen.
Please share with others..and God Bless you.
