Jesus Is Alive

“On the third day He rose again”
The death of Jesus was real. Maybe
someone doubted even the death
of Jesus. John himself assures that
he actually saw how Jesus’ side was
pierced with a spear. In this way a
Roman soldier made sure that Jesus
really was dead. Then the gospels
tell us that on the morning of
resurrection the tomb was empty.
The body of Jesus had been
resurrected.
Death has a power that man
cannot win. Many rich people have
tried to buy themselves more
youth, and many scientists have
tried to find immortality. Every day
we see many deaths on TV, but in
real life even the death of a close
family member may take place in
an “invisible” manner in a hospital.
This is the Finnish way of dealing
with death; it is not spoken about.
Even the word “die” is not used of a
family member, but instead it is
said for example quietly that “he
has gone away”. In many other
countries dead are buried with loud
funeral processions and
ceremonies.
The Bible teaches that death is
originally the result of sin ( Genesis
2:15-17). When Adam and Eve
sinned (Genesis 3), they died a
spiritual death. The relationship
with God was broken and as a
result their spiritual life died. Also
bodily death started to do work in
them. They became mortal. The
third death that the Bible speaks
about is eternal death. This is the
perishing or damnation that is also
called hell. Hell is eternally
continuing death for those who
have sinned against the almighty
God ( Matthew 25:41 and 2
Thessalonians 1:5-10). Jesus came
to gain victory over the whole of
death. Jesus has gained victory over
the power of death, sin and devil.
After this, death can no longer
claim the believer. Sin will no
longer destroy one who believes in
Jesus. Demons cannot have power
over someone who belongs to
Jesus. Death is a kingdom into
which Jesus steps and whose ruler
he overthrows. He breaks the
power of death and makes death a
way into eternal life. After Good
Friday “on the third day” there
comes the Sunday morning and the
celebration of the resurrection,
Easter. This is the greatest feast in
Christianity. On Easter morning you
may greet your friends by saying
“Christ has risen”, to which one
replies “He is risen indeed”. Every
Sunday is a reminder of
resurrection. Every Sunday is the
Lord’s day.
The first witnesses of resurrection
were women ( Matthew 28:1-10).
Like in many cultures today, the
testimony of a woman wasn’t
worth very much at that time in
Israel. If someone had “invented”
the resurrection of Jesus, the
person would have certainly put in
his story some important man to
play the role of a witness to this
event. But resurrection is not an
invented story – it actually
happened. Later a large group of
disciples was able to witness with
their own eyes that Jesus really has
risen from the dead ( 1 Corinthians
15:4-8). The Bible testifies to us,
that when we will be resurrected
on the last day, also our body will
rise in the same real manner as
Jesus rose ( Philippians 3:21 and
Daniel 12:2). Because the tomb of
Jesus was empty, also your tomb
will be empty one day. God calls
every human being to become
again a complete creation for his
eternal destiny ( 2 Corinthians 5:10).
How is this possible? For the
Creator God it is possible.

Freedom Of Choice

MORNING INSPIRATION WITH FAMMEYA MEYA YELEBE

Every man has the freedom to choose what happens to him. In our everyday life we make different choices. So many persons have spent their past years making wrong choices. You choose what happens to you,you choose life or death , you choose failure or success, courage, fear, happiness or sadness, faith, ambivalence, mediocrity etc. What you choose to do continually becomes your habit,your habit determines your character and your character determines your tomorow. You are responsible as well as your choice. Every moment gives you an opportunity to make a new choice.
Your success and achievement in the future will define and explain the choices you make today. Your desire and choice have the potency to attract your future. Whatever you ask from life you will receive for life is an employer we are the employee.

The Value Of Products

Morning Inspiration by Fammeya Yelebe on The Value of Products: Purpose.
You must have a course in life that is bigger than life, the creator of the earth calls anyone HE calls according to HIS Purpose.
Products are judged and valued to
the extent they fulfil their stated purpose. Purpose is the basics of judging Relevance. When there is a purpose God’s hands are stretched out to fulfil the purpose.
Purpose is Determined by the desire of the maker.
Your purpose is resident in who youare.
Purpose is inherent in being.
Your Purpose is determined by
Ownership (GOD). God Himself is your number one
Purpose in life.
