Romans 8:11 (NASB) But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
We have that same Spirit of God, His "Resurrection Power," indwelling within us to transform this earth into God's Kingdom now and for eternity. What a plan!
But how much authority do we have? We have far more than the enemy wants us to know! In fact, just when the enemy thought God's Kingdom-restoration plan was ended through the death of Jesus upon the Cross of Calvary, which was the very victorious arrangement God had hidden from the enemy, God swung wide those double doors of salvation for the world with the open door of the empty tomb of our resurrected Christ, the Messiah!
Jesus Christ's resurrection from the grave demonstrated a loving Father who also wanted to destroy satan's curse of sin upon this earth and God's creation! Consequently, what the enemy meant for our destruction is the very plan of our salvation to transform whomever receives Jesus as their Lord. Not only do we get eternity with Abba Father, we get to enjoy a restored relationship with Him now. Furthermore, we also are able to impart that to others!
When Jesus declared on the Cross, "It is finished," He decreed to the earth and the world of darkness that they had lost. When Jesus arose from the grave, He fulfilled the legal requirements of the law and broke the curse of sin off the earth! Jesus secured everything for the Believer from the Cross of Calvary and the Resurrection from the grave, and satan knows he is powerless to stop God's Kingdom plan.
Because Of Our Resurrected Savior, Jesus Christ, We Win!
Colossians 2:12-15 (NKJV) ...[You were] buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead. And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the Cross. Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.
Jesus dealt with all Hell and exploded back through this earth realm with a whole new set of keys – the keys of death and Hades!
Revelation 1:17-19 (NASB) When I saw Him, I fell at His feet like a dead man. And He placed His right hand on me, saying, "Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last, and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades..."
When we receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we indeed begin with our restored relationship to not only our Holy God but also our personal, loving Father God. Because of our risen Savior, Jesus Christ, we now enjoy an intimate relationship with a personal, caring Abba Father. Not being led by sin is a bonus of our salvation rather than the goal.
Our purpose is to utilize all of our resurrection authority that resides within us as followers of Christ – and this means we do not just "hold the fort until Jesus returns"! As we understand that our spirit is "quickened" by His Spirit, in the same way we should be "accelerated" to go further and faster now on earth otherwise impossible through mere human effort. We must – as God's design for Kingdom citizens – take dominion and multiply God's Kingdom on this earth as it is in Heaven! That is indeed the Believer's resurrection authority.
We have God's DNA, and we have His Son Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, as well as our "big brother" advocating to the Father on our behalf. Our value is so powerful that once Christians realize their potential, all Hell will flee from them. Why? Because power-packed within the Believer's soul is the same "Resurrection Spirit" from our Father to accomplish what satan desired to accomplish, to become "like God"!
The devil's motives to become "like God" have always been pride and jealousy. However, God made us in His own image and gave us authority to multiply God's Kingdom. Understandably, the defeated enemy cannot multiply anything, and our being "made-in-God's-image" should always remind satan of his irrevocable defeat! When satan wanted to take over Heaven, he lost his position, his abode, and his relationship with a Holy God.
Conversely, when Jesus died upon Calvary and arose from the grave, that then sealed satan's and his demons' fate to be penned in Hell for eternity without possibility of parole! Because God so loved the world, He gave us His only Son to restore our relationship with Him and destroy the devil's plan. Because of our resurrected Savior, Jesus Christ, we win!
The Lamb Who Was Slain Before The Foundations Of The arth!
After Christ arose from the dead, He actually fulfilled what He already was: Resurrection Authority! That means when the Word states that Christ was "slain from the foundations of the world," He came to this earth realm to manifest what had already been accomplished in the Kingdom of Heaven!
Revelation 13:8 (KJV) And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship Him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
Remember that as Believers in Christ we carry that same abundant, transforming spirit of Jesus to resurrect dead souls into the light and life of Christ! Moreover, Christians should grow in this authority and begin resurrecting forgotten prophetic words, sidelined destinies, dead dreams, shattered relationships, and physical diagnoses for healing and complete wholeness in every area of our lives!
We can now demonstrate that power to transform things that have not been fulfilled into completion by the quickened Spirit of Resurrection authority deposited into us through Jesus Christ! There is no limit to this abiding Resurrection Spirit within every Believer!
John 10:10 (NASB) The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.
As we approach another Resurrection Celebration season, remember that as the Feast of Passover demonstrated the power of the blood of the spotless lamb that secured the Israelites' freedom, so also does the Celebration of Resurrection remind us to embrace our personal "resurrection spirit" to raise the dead! Christians must now use their resurrection authority to raise the lost of this earth back from the dead sins that have blinded hopeless lives for too long!
Jesus Is An Approachable, Touchable Resurrection Witness
Jesus demonstrated His "Resurrection Authority" to many witnesses prior to His ascension into Heaven. As Christ appeared to His disciples, He made it clear that it is Jesus Christ and not a ghost! He allowed them to touch and feel His nail wounds of both His hands and feet. Jesus wanted them to know it was truly "their Jesus" and now their resurrected Christ, the Messiah, the only Savior of the world!
Jesus wants His children to know Him as the living Messiah and not to be viewed as some religious "emblem or shrine." The messengers from Heaven told the women at the tomb of Christ, "Why do you seek the living One among the dead? He is not here, but He has risen" (Luke 24:5-6).
Jesus wants us to touch and receive His same Resurrection Spirit to transform others into the identical abundant lifestyle!
Luke 24:36-40 (NLT) And just as they were telling about it, Jesus Himself was suddenly standing there among them. "Peace be with you," He said. But the whole group was startled and frightened, thinking they were seeing a ghost! "Why are you frightened?" He asked. "Why are your hearts filled with doubt? Look at My hands. Look at My feet. You can see that it's really Me. Touch Me and make sure that I am not a ghost, because ghosts don't have bodies, as you see that I do." As He spoke, He showed them His hands and His feet.
During this Resurrection Celebration season, the best gift to others is a lost life resurrected into eternal relationship with a loving Father. Now, that is truly "raising the dead" lives from the enemy's grip into a living, eternal life now, and having it more abundantly!
When We Receive Jesus, We Receive The Resurrection And The Life!
John 11:25 Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies..."
Because Jesus is our Risen Savior, we now have that same Resurrection Spirit living within each of us! We will indeed do as Christ instructed to "heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you received, freely give" (Matthew 10:8).
