“If any person be in Messiah, he is a new creation; the old things have passed away and behold new things have come” II Corinthians 5:17.  In Messiah the old creation is fading away and the new creation is coming; the old is gone and the new has begun to arrive.  The resurrection of Jesus

Come Out

“Lazarus, come out” (Jn 11:43).  The sprit of the dead one heard and obeyed the voice of Jesus.  The spirits of the dead saints live in the presence of that voice.  They even say to Him, “How long?” (Rev 6:10).  The story of Lazarus anticipates the day when those in the grave will hear His

Resurrection’s Hope

God the Father, who has all the hairs of my head numbered, with its hourly changing count, also has my DNA, identity and all that makes me who I am recorded in His heart. He will use that data in my final resurrection.  After I have gone back to dust, He will look down and

Empty Tomb

Throughout history mankind discovered that the tomb was necessary to separate the living population from decaying bodies.  Tombs had a finality about them because death was seen as having the last word.  Messiah’s empty tomb changed all of that.  Death no longer has the last word.  Death is now emptied of its power, denied its

Death’s Time

Sometimes we know by prognosis or diagnosis that our death is near.  A few know by intuition.  For the vast majority, we do not know.  It comes as a surprise, unannounced.  Death comes in the midst of jobs partially done and dreams not yet fulfilled.  It interrupts and disrupts our lives.  We really know it

God Will Not Forget

“Can a woman forget her nursing child And have no compassion on the son of her womb? Even these may forget, but I will not forget you.” Isaiah 49:15 (NASB).  For humankind, it is often, “Out of sight and out of mind.”  We all forget people who have once been in our lives.  History is

The Resurrection Answer

The Resurrection of Jesus answered the Psalmist when he asked, “Will the departed spirits rise and praise You?”  Jesus provided a living example of Resurrection when His Father raised Him from the dead.  Jesus is our true hope over death.  His resurrected-new-creation body foreshadows the body we will have.  In our Messiah, death does not

Your Life Rooted In His

He lives in us, therefore we live.  He who conquered death has promised if we believe in Him, we will never die.  We know we end up as dust.  This is not cause for despair since we believe in the Living One who was raised from the dead.  The Creator is our Savior, so death

The Lord’s Day

Christians began to meet on Sunday because Jesus the Nazarene rose from the dead on the first day of the week.  We give the first day to the One who is the “first fruits from the dead.”  Early Christians met together on the first day of the week (Acts 20:7, I Corinthians 16:2).  John called

He Is Alive

Pilate said more than he knew when he put over Jesus’ cross, “King of the Jews”.  Christ’s persecutors thought it was over for the “King of the Jews”.  They marked Him off as one more dead failed leader, but this King descended into death in order to rob death and the grave of its power.
