Msg# 1215 He Arose Because

What The Bible Says

Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice

The AP wire blurted through every TV-network showing 'Good-Friday' and Easter to be the Holiest Week of 'Christians'; accompanying footage showed pagan, penitent, Catholic, hooded, marchers whipping themselves with chains or black shrouded women in chains dragging crosses through the streets. One local report said “Some Christians even believe that Jesus arose from the dead after he had been crucified!” Easter, is carefully calendared each year to be the Sunday after the Jewish Passover so that it aligns with the day the Christ arose from the dead and his tomb was found empty. If one does not believe in the resurrected Christ they are NOT Christian! The resurrection is integral to the gospel. “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, … how that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the Scriptures:” (1Cor 15) It is integral to the Christ being restored to his position of preeminence wherein he “is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature; For by him were all things created, … And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.” (Col 1) Lastly the resurrection of 'God in the flesh' from the dead is essential because He and He alone could perform the work of the High Priest. On Yom Kippur only the high priest could take the atoning blood into the holy of holies and sprinkle it seven times before God on the mercy seat. These practices were images of what was actually before God the Father in Heaven. And the resurrected Christ had to ascend to Heaven and in full measure be our High Priest, and atone for our sin.
