What do the scriptures say?
Scripture TESTIFIES of the One would die and pay the penalty for our sins.
The PROPHECY of His death (Isaiah 53:5,6), burial (Isaiah 53:9) and resurrection (Psalm16:9), permeates through the Old Testament, pointing to the New.
The New Testament was not yet in its written form, when the Old Testament spoke of the Promise. It pointed to the One, who would take away the sins of the world. We see the fulfilment of this Promise in the New Testament.
God is a convent keeper. He fulfills His promises, even to those who are faithless, He remains faithful. He cannot deny Himself (2Tim. 2:14). He cannot and will not turn back on His promises. The fulfillment of God’s promises are not determined by human strength, ability or power.
There were those who were causing confusion among the Christians like (Hymenas and Philetus in (2 Tim. 2:17, 18), by denying the Resurrection. They attempted to shake the very foundation upon which the Corinthians built their faith.
Christ’s death and resurrection is the very foundation upon which the Christian stands. The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is the fulfilment of Scripture. It holds the fabric of the Christian faith together.
Without the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, there is no SALVATION. Once this is taken away, the very foundation of the Christian faith is taken away. It is the foundation of Christianity.
Let your eyes be steadfastly fixed upon Jesus today. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is fundamental to your faith as a believer in Jesus Christ. Hold on to JESUS, without HIM, there is NO SALVATION.
