“5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of His Death, we shall be also in the likeness of His Resurrection:
6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.” Romans 6:5-6
The Believer is afforded Resurrection power, not because Jesus lives but because Jesus died. At Calvary’s Cross, Jesus paid the penalty of sin for the believing sinner and broke the power of sin for Saint. Our faith that Jesus’ work was and is sufficient is what gives the Holy Spirit latitude to superintend the work of God in our life…to give us Resurrection power. It is the ministry of the Holy Spirit to remove that mountain before us or strengthen us to climb the mountain when our faith remains in the Cross of Christ. This is the Resurrection power afforded us by Jesus Christ and Him crucified and it is only given when our faith is properly placed in the Cross of Christ.
Jesus IS alive. He is sitting at the Right Hand of the Throne of God. His Resurrection is proof that EVERY sin is atoned for and it’s power broken for whosoever chooses to believe upon Him. Knowing this, Who Jesus is and what He has done, there is no doubt of His Resurrection.
“Looking unto Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the Cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the Right Hand of the Throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2
