Hello Church – This is Prophet Tony and also Senior Pastor of Kingdom Seekers International Mumbai India. I am going to speak to you today Resurrection Sunday April 12, 2020 – my topic ‘Resurrection Power’ appropriate for this day.
Hallelujah, Jesus is Alive!
Death has lost its victory
And the grave has been denied
Jesus lives forever,
He’s Alive! He’s Alive!
He’s the Alpha and Omega
The first and last is He
The Curse of sin is broken
And we have perfect liberty
The Lamb of God has risen
He’s Alive! He’s Alive!
Jesus is Alive!
He is the one who died to cleanse us and clear our record of all sin, then sat down in the place of highest honour beside the Great God Of Heaven.
Christianity is based on the law of forgiveness and an empty tomb – How True!
Calvary expresses the ‘Love of God,’
Resurrection explains the ‘Power of God.’
Resurrection is the greatest event that draws the line between Christianity and all other Religions.
Jesus rose from the dead; His tomb is empty. Hallelujah!
Christianity is our Great Confession.
Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Christ Jesus the Apostle and High Priest of our Confession. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrew 3: 1; 4: 16.
“That I may know Him and the power of His Resurrection!” Paul writes in Philippians 3:10.
There are four important interconnects that believers should take note of:
- Power 0f the Resurrection
CALVARY – The most completed historical event depicting the ‘death of Jesus’ on Calvary’s Cross – God left nothing undone at Calvary by the substitutionary death of Jesus His Son.
- Curse was broken Galatians 3: 13
- Sins washed away by His blood 1 John 1: 7
- Power of sin broken Romans 6: 10
- Sickness borne 1 Peter 2: 24
- Poverty annulled 2 Corinthians 8: 9
- Abundant life given John 10: 10
- Jesus rose from the dead on the 3rd day
- Defeated Satan (hell and the grave, the empty tomb proves it)
- Lives forever 2 Corinthians 5: 15
No other religion has a resurrection!
The disciples gazed at his ascension while He promised He would return
The angel reassured them He would come back again Acts 1: 1
Jesus assured us He would return and take us to our heavenly home.
The Prophets and Sons of the Prophets are busy heralding His return.
POWER OF THE RESURRECTION
Now what are at a time between the ‘Resurrection and Return’ of Jesus – what are we supposed to do?
‘Know Him and Show’ Him to the world.
How? – By the Power of the Resurrection – The Holy Ghost Power – The same Holy Ghost who brought Jesus into the womb of Mary, raised him from the dead, and that power and person of the Holy Spirit dwells in us believers –
“He is able to do exceeding…Ephesians 3: 20
“Call those things that are not as though they already were” Romans 4: 17
We have ‘Resurrection Power’ to cancel and expel this virus and its effects from planet earth and much more… “For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God.” Romans 8: 19 – through the power of ‘praise and worship’, ‘intercession,’ ‘groaning’ and ‘decree’ and this virus shall cease to exist. It is time!
Something worth remembering!
Prophet Elisha the great miracle worker in 2 Kings worked miracles when he was alive and the unfading power after his death even raised one from the dead.
Elisha was in constant touch with God and that is why he was always able to bring life out of dead situations wherever he went
And it was the same with Apostle Paul where people came to him with their problems and needs.
What about you and the Resurrection Power in you?
Do you feel or sense it?
Are you in constant touch with the Lord and His Word?
Only then can you expect Him to use you increasingly and effectively!
And we can do nothing except with the Holy Spirit who came down with power after the resurrection. – Didn’t he say?
Acts 1: 8. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
I tell you that the time of the ‘Lone-Rangers’ is over – DON’T resurrect them, DON’T hero-worship them! although you must honour and esteem them for labouring in God’s Kingdom, and practice godly principles you learned from them. Don’t go back, but go forward into your excellent prophetic future!
Revelations 22: 9. But he said, “No, don’t worship me. I am a servant of God, just like you and your brothers the prophets, as well as all who obey what is written in this book. Worship only God!”
The God of the now, expects you to move with power because you’ve got the Holy Ghost on the inside of you and scriptures beside you, with God’s Generals behind you to assist you since you know you belong to Jesus! God does everything beautiful in His time! Ecclesiastes 3
“For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.” Habakkuk 2: 14.
It’s a new day, it’s a new hour, it’s a new visitation in a brand new way – Revealing the Father exalting the Son, God’s Holy Spirit is making us one!
Rick Joyner says:
The kingdom of God is coming, and it cannot be stopped or slowed, but it can be hastened! We are told that we should be “looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God. 2 Peter 3: 12.”
What could we do to help bring His kingdom faster? We can do this by building our lives on His kingdom now and preaching the good news of His kingdom everywhere we go.
I believe the Tsunami wave of revival the greatest move of God of all time is breaking upon us globally despite the corona-viral pandemic and its horrors, from Christians in retreat to Christians in advancement! – The prophets and the sons of prophets are giving a wake-up call for preparing the bride for the soon coming return of – the heavenly bridegroom.
The heavenly Bridegroom soon will come,
To claim His bride, and take her home,
To dwell with Him on high.
Trim your lamps and be ready; for the Bridegroom’s nigh.
The Bridegroom comes, let no man doubt;
Alas, for those whose lamps are out!
They’ll find no oil to buy.
Who ready are shall enter in;
The marriage feast will then begin;
And every tear be dry.
The righteous, saved forevermore;
Their God shall ceaselessly adore,
In bliss beyond the sky.
O sinner! ere it be too late;
Flee now to mercy’s open gate,
And join Christ’s waiting band.
(Echoes Of Grace Hymn book)
