Topic: The Genesis Story: Part 154- “What to expect from Christ’s Resurrection!”
Bible Reading: Genesis 49
Memory Verse: Genesis 49:1b
“Gather around so I can tell you what will happen to you in the days to come.”
Good morning ladies and gentlemen! How are you doing? Christ has risen! He has risen indeed! Happy Easter to you all! I hope that as the world came together to commemorate Christ’s death and resurrection; you were assured of His love, grace and mercy upon us- His children! I pray that you are comforted by Christ’s resurrection power.
Today, we continue with the Genesis Story. Today’s message is a short one; to remind us of our assured blessings (through Christ’s resurrection). I pray that you are inspired by this message! I pray that your spirit would be full (and reassured) of God’s unconditional love and blessings over your life. Hallelujah!
What does Christ’s resurrection mean to you? What does the Easter period mean to you? Do you follow others as they play dress up during this period and give chocolate eggs to loved ones? Do you really understand why we celebrate Easter? Well, the Easter celebration is a time set aside to remember Christ’s death and resurrection! It is not about the Easter bunny; who hides Easter eggs all around the back yard!
During this time, we must open our hearts and minds to Christ; seeking His face and direction upon our lives. Most importantly, it is a time re-dedicate ourselves to Him and re-affirm our faith and blessings. The cross affirmed and binded all of God’s promises, blessings and covenants. Yes! All the blesses God had showered upon us had become very concrete and based on Christ’s death and resurrection.
From today, what do you have to look forward to? What will happen in the times to come? Well, the answer is very simple! We would begin to see a manifestation of God’s Word and blessings over our lives. Why? Well, because Christ died and rose up again. He is sitting on the right-hand side of God and is interceding on behalf. His death and resurrection are the basis all we have, all we do and who we are!
As we rejoice and give thanks to God for sending His son to die for us; let us be filled with hope, for God is about to do wondrous things in our lives. Sit back and relax! See what God has in store for you! No matter the circumstances you may face now! No matter how big your problem may be! Christ is risen and He is risen indeed!
As many messages of Christ’s resurrection pour out from all around the world, take a giant leap of faith and know that it is done! All you have asked for; it is done! All you have been promised; it is done! All that is rightfully yours; it is done! You have possession of all that is yours; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Stand up, give a shout, jump and cry; for Christ has risen and He has reclaimed all that belongs to you (that the enemy stole from you)!
I am so happy! I have a new song in my mouth! I hope you are too! God has made us conquerors and victors. What do we need that we cannot have? What do we want that we cannot have? Christ has paid the price; all we have to do is believe, have faith and enjoy.
God bless you all! Have a wonderful week and let God inspire you! Lastly, continue to stay safe amidst this crisis. Continue to follow the health guidelines provided by the appropriate health agencies. However, know that God has done it! We would be celebrating the end of this pandemic soon! Hallelujah!
The prayer below is for anyone who does not know God or maybe has been apart from God for a while. God is here to pour His favor over your life. All you have to do is call out to Him. Make that decision today!
I come to you today as a sinner. I admit that I am a sinner. I believe that Jesus is your Son and He came on to this earth to die for my sins. Dear Lord, let your Son come and fill me. Lord, I ask that He cleanses me off my sins. I am ready to stand for you and profess your Name. Thank you, Lord. Amen.
If you repeated this prayer with all the sincerity of your heart, congratulations!! You are now a part of God’s family. Welcome to the greatest family ever. Heaven is jubilating on your arrival. Your fellow brothers and sisters are also excited to have you on board.
Being a child of God is a wonderful thing. The road might not always be easy, but God is with you each and every step of the way. Guiding you, helping you and encouraging up. You will never regret this decision; I can assure you of that. Two things I would recommend for you to do are;
Get yourself a Bible (in a version you understand) and meditate on it day and night. In Joshua 1:8, we are told that when you meditate on the Word day and night, you will be prosperous and successful.
Find a Bible- believing church to attend and fellowship with other Christians. This would help you grow spiritually.
I am excited that you made this decision. Welcome! If you would like some help or more understanding into anything, you can leave a message (adding your email address) and I would be willing and happy to help you out! God bless!
