"He has Risen"
Hey glory! Dear Prayer-Partners,
"I declare unto you the gospel...by which you are saved...for I delivered unto you first of all, that which I also 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 Peter, then of the twelve; and after that, He was seen of more than five hundred brethren at once...and if Christ has not risen, then our preaching is for nothing and your faith is also for nothing...and if Christ be not raised, your faith is for nothing and you and still in your sins, and all who have died believing in Christ are lost as well...BUT NOW IS CHRIST RISEN FROM THE DEAD!!!...and has become the firstfruits of those who have died...behold, I show you a mystery, we shall not all die, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible and we shall be changed...then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory...o death, where is thy sting?...o grave, where is thy victory?...thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!!! Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as you know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord (from I Corinthians 15).
A blessed Resurrection Sunday to you all,
Pastor Dave & Ceres
