Do you believe the statements above?
Do you believe that though you would die physically, yet shall you live forever with Him?
The New Living Translation describes it a little different but meaning the same as above: “Yes, we are fully confident, and we would rather be away from these earthly bodies, for then we will be at home with the Lord.” 2 Corinthians 5:8 NLT
We are so thankful that you are with us today. I know this message will give you peace in your spirit and cause your faith to rise.
Thank God because Jesus rose from the dead, we will also rise from the dead and be with the Lord forever.
If it wasn’t for what Jesus did on the cross for all humanity and then arose from the dead after we died we would be damned forever to hell, as there would be no salvation.
In the lesson last week on the “Incarnation of Jesus Christ” I completed teaching on the crucifixion of Jesus and now this week I want to look at what happened after the crucifixion then minister on the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Right after the crucifixion of Jesus Christ a wealthy man by the name of Joseph of Arimathea who was a disciple of Jesus came to Pilate, and begged for the body of Jesus which Pilate gave to him as he had a tomb that had never been used that he wanted to use for Jesus body.
It was the custom in Israel that they wound the body in strips of cloth mixed with spices of myrrh and aloes. So Nicodemus who came secretly by night to Jesus in John 3:1-21 had also became a follower of Jesus along with Joseph of Arimathea prepared Jesus body for the tomb and then rolled a great stone in front of the sepulcher to secure it. See Matthew 27: 57-61 and John 19:38-42
Also present at the tomb was Mary Magdalene and Mary mother of James and Joses.
So at least 4 people had seen the burial of Jesus.
The next day the chief priests and the Pharisees came to see Pilate. They told Pilate that when Jesus was alive He said He would rise from the dead on the third day so they asked Pilate to station guards around Jesus’ tomb as they thought that Jesus’ disciples might come and steal the body.
Pilate agreed to the request and commanded that the tomb be secured with the guards and the large rock covering the tomb was to be sealed. Matthew 27:62-66.
By the end of the Sabbath in the very early morning hour as it began to be the first day of the week, Sunday, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary the mother of James and Joses to Jesus’ tomb.
A great earthquake occurred on that morning and the angel of the Lord came down from heaven and rolled back the great stone from the entry way to the tomb and the angel sat on the stone.
The angel told the women not to be afraid and that he knew they were trying to find Jesus but the angel said that Jesus was not in the tomb and that He had risen from the dead. Then the angel showed the empty tomb to the women.
The women were assured by the angel that Jesus would be in Galilee so the women started out. Along the way they met Jesus and He told the women “all hail.” Then Jesus told the 2 women to go tell His disciples that He would meet them in Galilee which they did. Matthew 28:1-10
The women found Peter and John and told them about Jesus’ resurrection and what the angel said so Peter and John ran to the tomb. They stooped down and looked into the tomb where Jesus had been and saw the linen clothes of Jesus lying and the napkin that had been on Jesus face. John 20:1-9
Jesus and been raised from the dead by the Father God, Romans 10:9-10 and had supernaturally slipped out of all the cloths that were wound around His body leaving them all in the tomb.
In the meantime some of the watch that were securing the tomb of Jesus came to the city and told the chief priests all the things that were done and that Jesus was no longer in the tomb. Matthew 28:11-15
The elders decided to give money to the soldiers who had guarded the tomb and told the soldiers to say that Jesus’ disciples had stolen the body of Jesus.
First of all Jesus body was not stolen from the tomb by His disciples nor did He need to be as Jesus had risen from the dead He was alive going around talking to His disciples and others as verification of His resurrection.
That whole thing was a lie made up by the religious leaders of Israel.
First you must understand that the angel rolled the stone away but Jesus had already rose from the dead. Our Precious Jesus does not need an opening to move out of the tomb He just went right through the huge rocks that made up the tomb.
As I mentioned earlier in this teaching if satan had known that he would not be able to keep Jesus dead he would never have allowed Jesus to be crucified.
Not only was Jesus not in the tomb but Jesus was walking around ALIVE!!!
The disciples of Jesus met Him in Galilee in a room that they were in with the doors locked as they were afraid of what might happen to them from the religious leaders. John 20:19-31
However the locked doors did not stop Jesus to come visit them, Jesus just suddenly stood in the midst of them never opening the doors just like Jesus exited the tomb right through the rock.
“Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you…” John 20:21
“And when He had so said, He shewed them His hands and His side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord. “Then said Jesus to them again, “Peace be unto you; as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you. And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and saith unto them. Receive ye the Holy Ghost. Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.” John 20:19-23
This was not the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues in Acts 2 that occurred a few days later. However as Jesus breathed on the disciples they received the Holy Spirit in their life. God was recreating humanity in Christ.
Thomas who was one of the 12 disciples was not with the others on that day that Jesus came to visit them as He has just risen from the dead.
The other disciples told Thomas about Jesus coming to them and suddenly showed up in the middle of a room they were all in.
However Thomas said if I can’t see the nail print in His hands and also touch Jesus’ side where the Roman spear went into Jesus I will not believe.
8 days later Jesus showed up again to His disciples and called over Thomas to check out His hands and His side and then Thomas made a statement that he now believed.
Jesus told Thomas and the others that now you believe because you have seen and touched me but more blessed are those who have not seen and yet still believe in me. John 20:24-31
Next week I will continue with Jesus’ resurrection.

We are involved in our ministry on an international level and also will be continuing to minister at churches as we are led to go to these churches in the United States.
On Tuesday October 27, 2015 the Spirit of God gave me a dream about a very large amount of people that I was ministering to. It seemed they were from different parts of the world. As I ministered to them I told them that WORLD WIDE REVIVAL was coming and that it would touch everyone on the face of the earth.
Every time I would say something to this huge crowd of people there would come a shout of excitement from them. But as I looked over to my right there was a man who I got eye contact with and I said this to him as we looked at each other. I told that man, whoever he was, that it was even going to affect him even though he would try to resist it.
And then I woke up.
Nita and I knew then and now that it was a dream from the Spirit of God and that He had called Nita and me to be part of this END TIME WORLD WIDE REVIVAL.
Since then I have ministered on revival in meetings and conversations I have had with other churches around the world.
JESUS SAID, “SAY NOT YE, THERE ARE YET FOUR MONTHS, AND THEM COMETH HARVEST? BEHOLD, I SAY UNTO YOU, LIFT UP YOUR EYES, AND LOOK ON THE FIELDS; FOR THEY ARE WHITE ALREADY TO HARVEST.” JOHN 4:35
Mankind has a tendency to push revival back to sometime in the future.
REVIVAL, REVIVAL, REVIVAL. (NOW, NOW, NOW).
“AS GOD’S PARTNERS, WE BEG YOU NOT TO ACCEPT THIS MARVELOUS GIFT OF GOD’S KINDNESS AND THEN IGNORE IT. FOR GOD SAYS, AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME, I HEARD YOU. ON THE DAY OF SALVATION I HELPED YOU.” 2 Corinthians 6:1-2, NEW LIVING TRANSLATION. INDEED THE “RIGHT TIME” IS NOW. TODAY IS THE DAY OF SALVATION.”
We are spreading the Word of God around the world as the Holy Spirit leads us to new areas in an ever increasing amount.
For you ministers or leaders of groups you can contact us for ministering in your church at: G Mail:
If you have come to this ministry website today and have never asked Jesus Christ to come into your life and be born again, you are not here by accident, the Spirit of the Living God drew you here.
If you do not have the assurance of where you would spend eternity if you died right now please go to the top of this website and it will have a tab for “SALVATION.” In that tab will be what is required by God to be right with Him. When you pray that prayer and accept the Lord please send us a Gmail to our website at: email@example.com and let us know that you accepted the Lord as your Savior and Lord and were born again. We want to rejoice with you and pray for you. Thank you (Please look up these scriptures: John 3:3 and Romans 10:9-10 it talks about you being born again).
Surely you know people who are going through hell and high water with real battles in their life both Christians and those that are not born again Christians. The Word of God that is presented each week will help turn their situation around if they do the Word of God and instead of the anguish and tears will bring a smile and victory to their life, isn’t that worth you sharing this website with others?
This includes the ones that not able to go to church because of disabilities and sickness or for one reason or another can’t attend church. Can you imagine how this Word of God would bless and comfort them? Please share this website with these folks also.
If we can pray for you please contact us regarding your prayer request.
