Luke 24:1-7 KJV 1.Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they
came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others
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.
4.And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by
them in shining garments:
5.And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them,
Why seek ye the living among the dead?
6.He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in
7.Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be
crucified, and the third day rise again.
WHERE WOULD WE BE WITHOUT THE RESURRECTION?
1 Corinthians 15:12-58 KJV 12.Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how
say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?
13.But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen:
14.And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.
15.Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he
raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.
16.For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:
17.And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.
18.Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.
19.If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
20.But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.
21.For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
22.For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
23.But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are
Christ's at his coming.
24.Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the
Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
25.For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.
26.The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
27.For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under
him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.
28.And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be
subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.
29.Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all?
why are they then baptized for the dead?
30.And why stand we in jeopardy every hour?
31.I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.
32.If after the manner of men I have fought with beasts at Ephesus, what advantageth it
me, if the dead rise not? let us eat and drink; for to morrow we die.
33.Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.
34.Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak
this to your shame.
35.But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come?
36.Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:
37.And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain,
it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain:
38.But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body.
39.All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh
of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.
40.There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the
celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.
41.There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the
stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.
42.So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in
43.It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised
44.It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and
there is a spiritual body.
45.And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was
made a quickening spirit.
46.Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and
afterward that which is spiritual.
47.The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.
48.As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are
they also that are heavenly.
49.And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the
50.Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God;
neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
51.Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52.In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall
sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53.or this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54.So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have
put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is
swallowed up in victory.
55.O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
56.The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
57.But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
58.Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the
work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
1)HEAVEN HEADED INTO RESURRECTION.
Romans 3:23 KJV 23.For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Romans 6:23 KJV 23.For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
YOU RECEIVE THE GIFT OF GOD WHEN YOU TAKE POSSESION OF IT THROUGH SALVATION.
2)JESUS CHRIST IS THE MEDIATOR.
John 14:1-3 KJV 1.Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go
to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto
myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
1 Peter 3:18 KJV 18.For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust,
that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the
THE SINLESS LAMB OF GOD PAID THE PRICE.
ONLY MEDIATOR WILL BE JESUS CHRIST.
Matthew 28:19-20 KJV 19.Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the
name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20.Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am
with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
WE HAVE A MESSAGE OF LIFE WITH JESUS.
John 20:11-16 KJV 11.But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept,
she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre,
12.And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet,
where the body of Jesus had lain.
13.And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have
taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him.
14.And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew
not that it was Jesus.
15.Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him
to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou
hast laid him, and I will take him away.
16.Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is
to say, Master.
Matthew 11:25-30 KJV 25.At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father,
Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent,
and hast revealed them unto babes.
26.Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight.
27.All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the
Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son
will reveal him.
28.Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29.Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall
find rest unto your souls.
30.For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
HAVE YOU EVER RECEIVED UNCONDITIONAL FORGIVENESS?
3)PUTS US IN A CAN'T DO SITUATION.
Acts 9:1-16 KJV 1.And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the
disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest,
2.And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this
way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem.
3.And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a
light from heaven:
4.And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why
persecutest thou me?
5.And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest:
it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.
6.And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord
said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.
7.And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no
8.And Saul arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but they
led him by the hand, and brought him into Damascus.
9.And he was three days without sight, and neither did eat nor drink.
10.And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord
in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, I am here, Lord.
11.And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight,
and enquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold, he
12.And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him,
that he might receive his sight.
13.Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath
done to thy saints at Jerusalem:
14.And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name.
15.But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my
name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel:
16.For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake.
Philippians 1:21 KJV 21.For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
Ephesians 2:10 KJV 10.For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good
works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
2 Corinthians 5:8 KJV 8.We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the
body, and to be present with the Lord.

HEAVEN OR HELL?
CONCLUSION: JESUS CHRIST HAS BEEN RESURRECTED. WHAT ABOUT YOU?
YOU CAN BE RESURRECTED TODAY.
