When Jesus died on the Cross little did the world realise that a new thing had been set in motion. There were many processes that were taking place behind the scenes and these were pointing to a new thing.
The resurrection power was birthed in the agony that Jesus had to experience that day. But the agony was soon forgotten when news filtered out that He was alive. Paul writes and says that we should come to an understanding of this power that God exerted in Christ when He raised Jesus from the dead.
It is the same power that caused a fledgling religion to become a global phenomenon. Today the Church has been birthed in a power that even the gates of hell cannot stop.
Several things are seen as a result of this power:
1. The Church came out in full force.
2. The dead things in our lives are raised again
3. We have an assurance that we are not alone
4. Death has lost its hold on us
5. We stand resurrected today and in the life to
Brethren it is of utmost importance to note that Jesus died and rose again and thus we can operate in the same resurrection power each day. No more should the enemy lie to us and tell us that we are dead. That's why Jesus says that the gates of hell can never bring His Church down. It is what He did when He rose that sets out faith apart. We serve a Living Messiah who has managed to change the world because He died and lives again.
As we continue to reflect on the post mortem of Easter we need to remember that there is power in the resurrection and we need not live like the dead. If Lazarus was well able to hear the voice of God from the tomb, your situations can hear the same voice saying, "all is well." Think about it!
