I am posting this teaching today so that it can be up from this Palm Sunday to Easter for you to enjoy God’s Word concerning this vitally important time of the year for all mankind.
What a wonderful hope we have as Christians concerning Resurrection Sunday.
Jesus said to Martha in John 11:25-26: “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believeth thou this? John 11:25-26
As Jesus asked Martha, do you believe in the RESURRECTION?
In going back to the original Greek of the New Testament the word RESURRECTION MEANS A RAISING UP, A RISING FROM THE DEAD, RAISED TO LIFE AGAIN.
The Apostle Paul talks about the resurrection of Jesus Christ: ‘For I delivered unto you first of all that which I have received, 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; And that He was seen of Cephas and then of the twelve; After that He was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some have fallen asleep. After that He was seen of James, then of all the apostles. And last of all He was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.” 1 Corinthians 15:3-8
Needless to say, Jesus Christ made no secret of His resurrection. He was seen of all the apostles and even at one time He was seen of 500 people at once.
Jesus Christ was on earth 40 days after the resurrection (Acts 1:3) to prove that He had risen from the dead and so that all that wanted to see Him could come to Him to verify the truth of His prophecy that He would rise again the third day. (Mark 8:31)
The Apostle Paul asks a very important question, what if Jesus Christ had not risen from the dead? “For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised: And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins. Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable (in other words if Christ had not really rose from the dead we have no hope of the resurrection yourself). BUT NOW IS CHRIST RISEN FROM THE DEAD, AND BECOME THE FIRSTFRUITS OF THEM THAT SLEPT (DIED). 1 Corinthians 15:16-20
Jesus Christ in His resurrection became the first one risen from the dead (spiritually and physically) after He was crucified and died and was risen from the dead by the Father God and the Holy Spirit, 2 persons of the Trinity. Galatians 1:1 and Romans 8:11
Since Jesus Christ was the first born from the dead (spiritually and physically) after His resurrection there is a 2nd born, 3rd born, 4th born etc. which is all of the people who died in Christ after His resurrection and went directly to heaven which is what happened starting after Jesus Christ resurrection.
I can prove that statement.
So how does Jesus Christ resurrection affect you now as a born again Christian?
What hope do you have?
“Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord. For we walk by faith and not by sight. WE ARE CONFIDENT, I SAY AND WILLING RATHER TO BE ABSENT FROM THE BODY, AND TO BE PRESENT WITH THE LORD.” 2 Corinthians 5:6-8
In this scripture the Apostle Paul is talking about all Christians living from the time of Jesus resurrection.
When a Christian dies now their spirit departs from their body immediately and their spirit is with the Lord in heaven. (See verses above)
That should give you a sweet peace this RESURRECTION SUNDAY that the Word of God states that when you die you (your spirit) is no longer in your body but is with the Lord in heaven.
That my brother in sister in Christ is the blessed hope we have.
Because our Savior Jesus Christ rose from the dead you will experience resurrection the very second you breathe you last breath and be in the presence of the Trinity of God in heaven.
That is your blessed hope.
The blessed hope that you have this Easter (Resurrection Sunday) is because Jesus Christ rose from the dead we can believe His promise that we shall rise from the dead or if you are alive at the RAPTURE of the Church that you will be resurrected then.
Let’s look at what happens during the RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH.
By the way, the rapture of the Church, made up of born again believers all over the face of the earth will happen before the tribulation, the Bible proves this over and over again.
I could give you many proofs in believing that the Bible teaches a pre tribulation rapture but I will give you one good reason why we will be raptured out of this world before the 7 year tribulation.
The Lord has promised you as a born again Christian that He has kept you from the wrath to come which is the tribulation. See 1 Thessalonians 1:10, 1 Thessalonians 5:9, Romans 5:9 and Revelation 3:10.
In looking at scriptures regarding the rapture of the Church we see that this is another resurrection that our Lord promises to Christians.
We find the answers to the Rapture of the church in 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18: “For this we say unto you by the Word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep (those that have died as Christians since Jesus rose from the dead). For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trump of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain (on the earth) shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air, and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words. 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18
So that is a picture on the rapture of the church.
You may say I thought when a born again Christian dies they are instantly in heaven with the Lord?
Your right, their spirit is in heaven but the ones that have died and gone to heaven before the rapture of the Church do not have their glorified body at that time but they do get them at the rapture of the church.
That’s why the Apostle Paul says in these verses I just quoted that the dead in Christ shall rise first. This is not talking about their spirits as they are already in heaven but instead it is talking about their dead bodies which shall be put back together and changed instantly to a glorified body.
The ones that are alive and raptured from the earth are caught up together with the ones that were dead in Christ and have received their glorified bodies. The ones who are alive are raptured and they get their glorified body also as they are raptured to heaven.
Today because Jesus Christ was RESURRECTED WE HAVE THE PROMISE THAT WE WILL BE RESURRECTED.
SO REJOICE TODAY, THIS RESURRECTION SUNDAY AND BE GLAD THAT YOU AS A CHRISTIAN ARE PROMISED THAT YOU WILL FOREVER LIVE WITH YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST.
God bless you and may your joy be full because of the fact that Jesus Christ rose from the dead and if you are a born again Christian you will be also.
BLESSED RESURRECTION SUNDAY TO ALL OF YOU AROUND THE WORLD.

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.

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 g mail to our website at: firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
