Title: Benefits of Resurrection

Notes:

Resurrection is not an event. It is a person.

John 11:20-26 - If you look at the resurrection as an event, you will be waiting for this one day each year. Live it everyday. Jesus said "I am the resurrection..." There is no other resurrection. He is the resurrection. If you look at it like an event, you will not receive its benefits. When you have resurrection, you have life. You have power against the enemy. Jesus is the Resurrection. If you have Jesus, you have resurrection and you can defeat all things that come against you.

John 5:24 - Resurrection is not an event, it is a person. You have the resurrected Lord inside of you. You must have an accurate perception of what resurrection is.

John 6:27 - Don't focus on things that perish. Focus on the everlasting life. Resurrection is life!

John 6:33 - Jesus came to reveal to the world that he is the resurrection.

John 6:35 - You shall never thirst or hunger when you live in Christ. You cannot be satisfied with the things of this world. Your life can only be satisfied through Christ.

John 6:40 - We have everlasting life. This qualifies you for the last event. Having Jesus in you assures you of being risen up!

John 6:47 - Believe in Christ and you will have everlasting life.

There are two benefits of resurrection that we are going to talk about.

First, resurrection deals with our sins. Without resurrection, our sins cannot be forgiven. A believer's identity is revealed through resurrection.

1 Corinthians 15:17 - If there is no resurrection, then we have no faith. We have a risen Lord. Our faith is real. We serve a God of reality. It takes resurrection for your sins to be cleansed. Your faith reveals the true nature of Jesus inside of you. Your faith is not in vain. If the devil tells you otherwise, tell him to shut up! Our faith is not in vain. Christ is risen.

Resurrection gives us justification. You are pardoned. Don't live your life on what happened to you yesterday.

Romans 4:25 - True resurrection will receive justification. Sometimes the devil brings up what you did years ago. Tell him to shut up! We are delivered from our offenses.

Learn how to forget your past. The blood of Jesus has taken care of our past. Our past has nothing to do with our future. Let go of the past because God has already let go of it. Our sin has already been dealt with.

Hebrews 2:14 - We are children of God, made of flesh and blood. God came in the human flesh to show us how to deal with the devil. We have all it takes to knock the devil down. Let the devil know that there is a new kind of humanity, and you are it!

Hebrews 2:15 - Don't allow your past to hold you. It no longer exists. The resurrection of Christ relieved us from every bondage. We have authority over the enemy. Say it, "I have authority over the powers of darkness!"

Let the devil know that the blood has spoken! This blood is speaking every day! It is speaking for your freedom! It is speaking for your deliverance!

Romans 4:25 - We are delivered for all of our offenses. Not just some of them. Or one particular one. We have all messed up, but thank God for grace! We are delivered from all of our offenses. Our past is taken care of. The best thing that will ever happen to you is having Jesus. Justification has a lot of components.

Romans 8:30 - One component is that you will be glorified. Christ in you is the hope of glory! Say it loud, "I am glorified!" This is an everlasting insurance.

The second benefit of resurrection that we will talk about is that it releases us into a place of victory!

Ephesians 2:6 - The resurrection of Christ releases us into a place of victory. You are not in a place of victory because of your own making, but by what Christ has done. We are in a place of victory.

Ephesians 1:18 - Let your heart be flooded with what Christ has done for you. You must know that there is hope. If you don't, then you can't make use of it. What you don't know, you can't benefit from. You have power against every demon! No believer is hopeless! God is going to favor you! God is going to bless you! God is going to make things work out for you! We have an inheritance! Say it loud "I HAVE AN INHERITANCE!" The Light of God is our inheritance. A believer cannot be overcome by darkness. A believer needs to walk in the light!

A believer's deficiency is not faith, but knowledge.

Philemon 1:6 - Thank God for the resurrection every day, not just once a year. You must acknowledge those good things in you which are from Christ. You must acknowledge them if you want to benefit from them. Your faith cannot be productive if you do not acknowledge the good things that are in you in Christ. Tell the devil he is in the wrong house. Do not compromise your faith. Let the enemy know you aren't giving up!

Resurrection releases us into a place of victory. Permanent victory.

Ephesians 1:19-20 - Three things to think on. (1) a believer has hope, no matter the situation. (2) a believer has an inheritance of the light of God. The darkness can not defeat you. (3) the exceeding greatness of His power is available to those of us who believe.

The power was released when Christ was raised from the dead. Through resurrection, power was released to us. This power will allow us to overcome all that comes against us.

Ephesians 1:21 - Authority is not just here on earth but in the heavens as well. You have the power over darkness. We have authority! Resurrection brings us to a place of victory!

1 Corinthians 5:7 - Christ is our Passover who was sacrificed for us. Christ is inside of us, not just at church or when we are reading the bible, but at all times, in all places.

Have a relationship with Christ. Talk to Him. Let Him into your life. Give Him control. The best thing that will happen to you is in Christ.

"I am redeemed by the blood of Jesus!"
