You Can Experience Resurrection Life Now!

Jesus re-frames our understanding

Right here. Resurrection life now.

The resurrection is already on!

  • Amazingly, bodily resurrections occurred in the Old Testament. And this, under a covenant which Paul says is inferior to the New Covenant! See 2 Corinthians 3:7–11. These incidents were precursors to resurrection life in our time, the time of the New Covenant.
  • Christ wants his followers to raise the dead. Jesus sent the twelve on a mission. “As you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand (has drawn near). Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you received, freely give” (Matthew 10:7–8 NAS). Christ means for this mission-mandate to be for his full-on followers until he comes again. That includes today’s Christ-followers!
  • When Jesus yielded up his spirit on the cross, the veil in the Temple was torn in two from top to bottom. There was an earthquake. Rocks were split and graves opened. Resurrection life was bursting forth even as Jesus died.
  • As Jesus was raised, so much life hit the earth that many saints were also raised and came out of the tombs! They appeared to many in Jerusalem. See Matthew 27:50–53.
  • People were raised from the dead in the Book of Acts. Peter raised Dorcas from the dead (Acts 9:36–42). He followed the same faith template Jesus used to raise the daughter of Jarius. Paul raised Eutychus to life again (Acts 20:9–12).
  • People have been raised from the dead since the times of the New Testament, including our day.
