TOPIC: PROOFS TO SHOW THAT CHRIST IS RISEN

Scripture: Luke 24: 2. And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre. 3. And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.

Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter.

We established yesterday that Christ rose again triumphantly from the grave and it is the greatest object of attack because without the risen Lord, there is no Christianity!

We all bear the name “Christian” today because Christ rose from death! If Jesus Christ did not rise from the grave then our faith is baseless. And as such, today we shall be considering proofs that He indeed rose again.

What are the proofs that Christ is risen?

1. An empty grave; The first proof is that of the empty tomb, which is still there till date:

Luke 24: 2. And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre. 3. And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.

An empty grave is there to prove that my Jesus is no longer in the grave.

2. Post resurrection appearances: Jesus appeared to the following persons
a. Mary Magdalene(Mrk.16:9)
b. Mary and other women (Matt.28:9).
c. Peter and other disciples (1Cor.15:5, Jn.20:19-20)
d. Five hundred brethren (1Cor.15:6)
e. James the brother of Jesus (1Cor.15:7)
f. Paul the Apostle (1Cor.15:8)

3. The transformation that followed the people that believed in Jesus is another proofs that He is risen from the grave.

Example

a. Peter the Fisher man turned a miracle worker(Acts 3:6-10). He became a preacher with boldness;

Acts 4: 13. Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.

b. James who never believed in Jesus before because they were brothers was transformed and later turned out to be a servant of God (James 1:1)

c. Paul the murderer was transformed into an Apostle(1Tim.1:15);

1 Corinthians 15: 9. For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.

d. And so many other people including myself. If nobody else will say it, I will stand boldly to say Jesus is risen and He is alive by virtue of the transformation that has taken place in my own life.

Few days ago, I went out in the evening to buy some items and I saw my Muslim brothers preparing to break their fast. And straight away the Holy Spirit ministered to me, “‘you could have been like any of them if you had not accepted Jesus!’ I was reminded of where I was coming from, especially in this Ramadan season, what I would have been doing if not for Jesus that came to me and turned my life around.

Beloved, that I was born a Moslem wasn’t my fault! It would have been my fault if I rejected the salvation message and turned down the pardon for sin extended to me, but thanks be to God I accepted Jesus and my life has never been the same again. I don’t know about you?

You may have been born in the church, dedicated on the altar, if you turn down the pardon for sin that Jesus offers, then your soul is dried of eternal life, it is time to turn a new leaf. I did mine 25years ago, His Mercy and Grace has been keeping me ever since then!

Today could be your own turn, let the story of redemption flow through you to your generation. Christ is no longer in the grave, He is risen that is why we gather every Sunday to celebrate the risen Lord.

Remember this: Heaven is real and hell is real! Refusal to give ones heart to Jesus is signing the register for hell.

Prayer points:
– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Father, may my life experience the risen Lord and the power of resurrection in the name of Jesus.

Prophetic Declaration:
– I prophesy the power of resurrection to be your experience from henceforth in the name of Jesus.
– May Post resurrection encounter that will make you count in your generation be your experience this season in the name of Jesus

From your brother Alex
God bless you.
