Pastor's Desk:

THE POWER OF CHRIST’S RESURRECTION.

 

Philippians 3:10 “ That I may know Him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death”(KJV).

Apostle Paul as we have read in this Bible text desires to know Christ more intimately and this appears to be his primary desire which should be the desire of every Christian and believer all over the earth. Apostle Paul was convinced beyond reasonable doubt that the power in Christ’s resurrection is the most potent and active power from God Himself. This power can change numerous lives; it is the greatest evidence that confirms Jesus Christ as Our Lord, Saviour and the only begotten son of God. Without the resurrection of Christ, the Christian faith is baseless; our faith will be in vain and the good news of our Lord Jesus will not be shared with much enthusiasm, power, glory and might if Christ has not risen from the dead and the consequence of that is we will not be saved from our sins.

The power of Christ resurrection has saved all those that believe in His name. Jesus while alive, accurately predicted in John 2:19-22 by referring to the temple as His body in front of the elders in Israel, and even mentioned how the Jewish leaders will conspire against Him. Interestingly the Jewish leaders knew, and remembered He mentioned resurrecting and that He referred to His body as the temple but they are stiff-necked and would not believe Him but instead called Him a deceiver (Matthew 27: 62-66).

 

The account in the Gospel of St Matthew 28: 2-4 records the resurrection of Christ in which there was a great earthquake and the countenance of the angel of the Lord even though the elders sent watchers to keep His tomb secure but the occurrence had the keepers stood there as ‘dead men’ as they couldn’t resist the appearance and power of God in action. Also several account were recorded as Jesus showed Himself to about 500 hundred people, His disciples while fishing, and even appearing to doubting Thomas in spite of his unbelief.

 

There is nothing anyone could do to disprove the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ because, no one can produce His body, and even the enemies of the gospel cannot stop the spread of the news of Jesus Christ’s resurrection. His body was transformed into a glorious body- an everlasting incorruptible body. We should always glorify God that we are privileged to know Him as our Lord and Saviour. By desiring to know Our Lord more, this does not mean he was not saved; because Apostle Paul has already given his life to the Lord on his way to Damascus when the Lord called him which he answered ‘Lord! What will you have me do?’ This response has been the driving force of the writer of two third of the New Testament......Continues here

 

JESUS IS LORD!

Weekly Devotion:

Conquering Word for the Week

 

Week 15: 12 April 2015.

 

1 Samuel 17:37 (KJV)

“David said moreover, The LORD that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine. And Saul said unto David, Go, and the LORD be with thee”.

Commentary:

The security and presumption of fools destroy them. Nothing can excel the humility, faith, and piety which appear in David's words. David had no skill to use other arms; because he had inward assurance of the victory, because such a conquest would be more honourable to God, and most shameful, and discouraging to his enemy. David put his trust in God; hence he ascribed all the glory of the triumph he anticipated to God alone. When it comes to our faith, we like David have the choice of whether we will live in fear or in trust. The only thing to do this week and beyond is to trust in the protection and power of our Mighty God who will fight your battles for you and give you victory this week, in Jesus name.

Testimonies:

 

I am beholding the beauty of the Lord, surely God is in this house and I did not know. I just happen to move from Plymouth to ivy bridge and I was amazed and how God has been my provider once more, I was amazed more on how he opened my eyes to look at the things that he has done. He came in ordinary, he didn’t come in a mighty miracles. I really thank the Church especially people that supported me during my moving, God is awesome. It really moved me to the extent that I had promised God to visit each every one of you every Saturday.
