"Him the Almighty Power Hurled headlong flaming from the ethereal sky with hideous ruin and combustion down To bottomless perdition, there to dwell In adamantine chains and penal fire, Who durst defy the Omnipotent to arms." Satan falls into Hell, where he festers with his hate and fallen angels.
He lived a sinless life and had many followers, but also had many who were against Him. Jesus suffered as a man, and was beaten and bruised. He eventually was hung on a cross because He claimed He was the Messiah, and the people wanted Him crucified. It was God’s plan since the beginning, but Jesus didn’t want to die--He was a human just like you and I, but He did for you. He was put in a tomb with a bolder in front of it, so no one would steal his body. On the third day, He rose again and defeated death--and the devil. You see, Jesus already did save you. This life wasn’t promised to be easy, but our life in Heaven will be worth our short time on Earth. Do you believe this?”
Jesus’ death and resurrection redefined humanity by breaking the death grip of sin and allowing his believers to be heirs with him. Jesus says in John 8:34, “‘Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin’”. Since all has sinned and fallen short to the glory of God (Romans 3:23) and the wages of sin are death (Romans 6:23), humanity was destined to be enslaved to sin and die in it since the fall of man. It is impossible, in the past and the present, for a human to live without sin. And because God is fair, and the wages of sin is death, there had to be some sort of sacrifice for the sins of the world because if there was not, the whole earth would perish. As mentioned earlier, Jesus was the only man capable to live
Many people ridicule Christians for believing in a man who resurrected from the dead. They laugh at Christians and criticize them for basing their faith on an event that lack proof and evidence. However, the evidence that skeptics use to challenge the Christian faith, in actuality, support the claims that Jesus truly was the God that he claimed to be. The evidence that affirms Jesus’ claims to be true include his lifestyle and teachings, the prophecies that he fulfilled, historical facts, and the dramatic transformation of the lives of his disciples. Many may ask Christians how they can believe in a Savior without proof of his divinity; but, in reality, God has given us an abundance of signs. He is still providing us with compelling evidence
god says: even so, is the revival, for, god brings to life the dead, and he shows you his signs, the proofs of his power, so that you might understand, [that you might] reflect and realise that the one capable of reviving a single soul is also capable of reviving a multitude of souls, and then believe}.
Jesus in fact did die on the cross to forgive our sins, but all of us Christians know about the famous resurrection of Christ. Paul said in 1 Corinthians 15:14, "and if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is vain, your faith also is vain." So did Jesus really resurrect from the dead? There are three main verified examples of information that prove the resurrection of Jesus Christ. First off, three days later after he resurrected the tomb was found and confirmed empty. Now, there are more facts to the tomb than just that. Not only, did they find the tomb empty but, they found it in Jerusalem which is the city where he was buried. Even though, people of different religions fight against this fact the majority of religions accept that
We made similar points saying that one of the reasons that the resurrection is important is that it fulfills the prophecies that we see in the old testament. I recently heard a sermon at my church and the pastor was talking about how incredible it was that Jesus fulfills are many prophecies as He did. He told us that the probability of someone being able to fulfill eight prophecies would be the same as if you marked one quarter and then covered the state of texas with quarters twice, and then with one choice you picked the exact quarter that you marked. Pretty incredible that Jesus fulfilled 44.
In everyman, God being the overseer of all things earth and sea. God isn’t very happy with the way humans are acting on earth and how they are treating each other. Therefore he sends Death our for everyman. Death represents like a Gods messenger who goes to advise Everyman that he will be judged by God very soon and may take the consequences of death. "Almighty God, I am here
Yet his prophecy is said that he shall rise from the dead, destroy the temple and raise it up (John 2:19). In which day, I will be reporting the plenty of witnesses of his resurrection after death. Truly, I shall focus and document the interviews of those who chose to crucify him on this day. Until then, I choose to leave a record of the statements of the men who have pinned this man down to a cross for the world to notice and laugh at him for his power. And if it is true, that he is the lord, the Son of God and that he shall come back to life in two days, then, will the men including Pontius Pilate, understand the role of their act as
There are various epistemological methods to defend the belief of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. For example, fideists would defend the belief of Jesus raising from the dead by simply stating that it says so in the bible. They believe it is pointless to make arguments and find the use of rational investigation as unbiblical. It is through one’s experience with God that he or she’s faith can be confirmed. The Strong rationalists would defend their belief by using logical reasoning. They believe that one can use rationalism to show why their belief is true. For example, a strong rationalist would see if there are any other sources besides the bible that can confirm the event of Jesus raising from the dead. They believe that if it is true, then it is possible to prove it. Critical Rationalists
The Christian faith is founded on the idea of the resurrection and Jesus dying for everyone’s sins. The Resurrection is a central story of the Christian faith, and it must be true for the Christianity to hold up. The Bible is the ultimate source for information on the Resurrection from the disciples themselves through the Gospels. Many theorists have come up with theories that contradict and counter the Resurrection because of the lack of belief and proof. Although there are arguments against the resurrection, there are more arguments for it. Christianity arose due to the Resurrection, and consists of the sacrifice Jesus made for the greater good of all the people.
No human could raise themselves from the dead, thus we cannot defeat sin, death, and the devil on our own, we need God to humble himself as a human to do it for us. We discovery that Jesus’ resurrection one of several signs of Jesus as God incarnate. We also see that Jesus’ prophecy of his arrest, crucifixion, and resurrection as stated by the angels in 24:6-7. Due to this prophecy, we can infer that Jesus knew beforehand what he was going to be enduring with his arrest, mocking, torture, and death. Knowing this shows readers that Jesus is loving and greater than I in all aspects, I could not imagine going through that torture for someone who is disobedient, neglectful, and so full of sin. He truly is indescribable there are no human words that can describe how wonderful and loving he is for doing that for you and
Many different worldviews and religions have influenced our world today and fought for dominance. The belief that has the most followers right now is Christianity with over two billion believers. It seems strange to have people put their faith in something that appears untrue or crazy for those who don't believe. The thought of a man claiming to be the Son of God, dying and rising from the dead just to save people who hated him seem preposterous, but that hasn’t stopped this religion from growing. Proof and logic if often inspected to find fault in this faith to bring it down. Christ's death and resurrection is vital to Christianity, if Jesus never rose from the dead then Christianity has no foundation or any reason to exist. From the film, Case For Christ (based on a true story), we are taken into an atheist's point of view in an attempt to disprove Christianity and see the evidence and logic that is given to prove his theory wrong.
Hell one of many English words used to describe a supernatural place. “Generally speaking the word “hell” is used in scripture to refer to a place of future punishment for the wicked dead. “ Traditionally it has been held that unbelievers will be condemned without exception to eternal damnation or punishment. Increasing numbers of people are emphasizing that God's final punishment for sin is death rather than everlasting torment. The word "hell" occurs several times in the Old Testament, the word translated "hell" is the Hebrew word "sheol" that simply refers to the abode of the dead in general, not particularly the place of the punishment for the wicked.
