The greatest victory on this side of Heaven is the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In this new and powerful excerpt of Edmund DeSoto’s new book, The Man On That Cross, he eloquently pens the work that was done on the cross by the King of kings.
The Lord’s resurrection is a powerful life changing fact, it is the eternal truth and reality that from the very beginning the enemy has been trying to erase from the pages of history. The moment he found out that he made the biggest mistake of his life, a full blown attack on this eternal truth was launched by him and his demons. Without this eternal truth of the Lord’s Resurrection, the Church of the Jewish Messiah would have been defeated ages ago.
Oh, but the Lord gave us a promise that could never be broken and even “…the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matthew 16: 18 KJV). Edmund goes into great detail on how the future of mankind and that of the universes stood on the balance at one point in time without the resurrection of the Lord. But glory be to God in the highest for His love and great mercy. The powerful ministry of the Holy Ghost experienced by millions has been possible because of the resurrection of our Lord and Savior. Heaven has induced us with power because of the Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. This Power from Heaven made flesh manifests the results of the Lord’s life living in us.
As He makes us His temple, the results are the attributes of His life manifesting through us. His Holy Spirit can’t help but produce these wonderful fruits. The word of wisdom; to another the same Spirit gives The word of knowledge and it is given by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; To another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; To another the working of miracles; To another prophecy; To another discerning of spirits; To another divers kinds of tongues; To another the interpretation of tongues:
The anointing or the Power of the Spirit of God in your life is the fruit of God’s Glory in your life. This is possible because of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. God’s Glory is the source and that source is Jesus manifested in the flesh. God’s Power is the fruit, the result of the Glory of God and that Power again is Jesus. The Glory of God is Jesus in your life and now as you receive Him as Lord and Savior, He is able to make you His abode. All this is truly possible because of His resurrection.
The Glory of God who is Jesus produces the Power of God, the Power of God is the manifestation of the Gifts of The Holy Spirit. So when we see the Power of God being manifested, we can only conclude that Jesus is in our midst. He reminded and commanded us the following. “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen” (Matthew 28: 19-20 KJV).
How is this possible? It is only possible through The Resurrection of our Lord from the dead. Join me today on a wonderful journey through the corridors of time as together we examine the undeniable truth that Jesus Christ, the son of the Living God resurrected on the third day as He said He would.
