When the lord God Almighty called his children from hell beneath, Christ Jesus was the first to be raised from the dead, before us. Because you need to realise that before the coming of Christ we were dead and buried in our trespasses and sin
Ephesians 2:1 And you has the Almighty God quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; 2:2 Wherein in time past you walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now is working in the children of disobedience:
Next time you hear about Christianity, just realise that in the original senses of the matter, they died and was raised together with Christ Jesus. But he is firstborn from dead.
Christians are not just some religious folks who have stopped doing this and that, in the light of the lord God Almighty wisdom and judgement, they came out from the grave and hell. The headquarters of Satan the devil.
If you say I want to be a Christian right now, it won't be your own will to do so, someone whom you can not see right now, but would begin to experience the moment you begin to live by trusting him and living for him, has called you to hear his voice.
It's never anyone's will to be a Christian. We are called, chosen and ordained by CHRIST to bear fruit and keep this tradition for ever and more.
The great thing about Christianity is the good work it is born to accomplish on earth and in the world to come.
Acts 10:38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
10:39 And we are witnesses of all things which CHRIST JESUS did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree: 10:40 Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly; 10:41 Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before of God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead.
10:42 And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead. 10:43 To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.
These words of scriptures confirms and clarifies what I have been struggling to paint here. If you would read with complete attention and not studying to argue.
Let me tell you something that probably you have never heard of, the devil the enemy of your soul, what I mean by that is that he is committed to stealing your soul, not only that.
But to destroy it, all of your senses, reasoning, thoughts and feelings and emotions. And to finally kill and mortar you on earth. I mean dust to dust.
His duty is to keep you off from seeing what the lord God Almighty is doing through Christ Jesus, to bring you up to the very place of resurrection.
The truth I bring to those of us who have accepted that the lord God Almighty raised Christ Jesus from the dead, should always and never forget that we were raised together with Christ and seated together with Christ Jesus in the heavenly realms.
But, that is not experience by you because of limitations of your knowledge and understanding in affairs of truth.
Grow in grace and in the knowledge of the LORD CHRIST JESUS and of God Almighty.
To conclude, realise resurrection from your dead works, those things which have so influence you greatly on the negatively points. Not by your power or by your might, but by my Spirit says the lord God Almighty.
It's not our thoughts to be born a Christian, it's by the will and pleasures of the lord God Almighty that we are his dear children. Amen
