The resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead is proof that He has conquered death and has thrown open the door of everlasting life.

Because of Christ's death on the Cross, we can know the joy of God's forgiveness for our sins. And through His resurrection we can have the assurance of everlasting life. The living Savior promises: "I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live" (John 11:25).

After the dark hours on the Cross when Christ was judged by God for our sins, His body was placed in a new tomb. His enemies set up a guard and sealed the tomb with a Roman seal so that His body would not be stolen.

Three days later, on resurrection morning, an angel declared the triumphant news to His followers: "I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for He is risen" (Matthew 28:5).

Jesus Christ arose from the dead! The Savior who was "made sin for us that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him" was accepted by His Heavenly Father. The "Lamb of God that taketh away the sin of the world" had fulfilled the work of God for our redemption.

Because of Christ's resurrection you can receive God's salvation: "If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved" (Romans 10:9).

You can be assured that Jesus Christ is living for you. The living Savior "is able to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him, seeing He ever liveth" (Hebrews 7:25).

Because Jesus Christ lives in Heaven today, those who trust Him for salvation will one day be with Him. He promises: "I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live" (John 11:25).

If you are researching or studying dispensational theology, this book is well worth the price. It builds on Ryrie's seminal "Dispensationalism" and nuances it, and more precisely defining dispensational ideas. It is a must read. Citiți recenzia completă
