resurrection

Daniel 12:2: my personal view


In chapter twelve of the book of Daniel we are given insight into what is to occur to the people of Israel just before the second coming of Jesus Christ. In verse two it speak specifically of a type or resurrection.
If they believe in a resurrection there differing views on this particular verse. I actually find that mine differs from what I have read. You see I believe in the specialness of the Jewish people. They have a special place in God’s heart and a special purpose in His ultimate plan for all of creation.
To me I see that there is a full resurrection of every single Jew ever born upon the day that Christ set foot upon the Mount of Olives. Both righteous and unrighteous. Nowhere in the Bible does it state when the pit of fire was made or where it will be. The Bible does say that both good and bad of the Israeli nation will be resurrected and by the way the wording is done in way that it will be at the same time. It does say the righteous will be rewarded and that those that turned their back on God will receive their due.
This resurrection is separate from the Rapture and is separate from the resurrection at the end of the Thousand Year Reign of Jesus Christ.

Hey did you hear the news?


Jesus came back from death. Yes He was crucified, and on the third day he arose and walked amongst men once again for forty days. He appeared out of thin air in a room that was locked tight. He walked with men and talked with them. He instructed those that had walked with Him before He hung upon the cross. He took the keys of hell from Satan’s hand.

Romans 19: 9 For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.
1 Peter 3: 18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: 19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison; 20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. 21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ: 22 Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.

Christmas is about you.


Now “you” can be taken many ways. There are those that would think it means to think only of themselves and what gifts they are going to be given. This is actually the furthest thing from what I am referring. There is a gift involved and it was given to and for you.
When you truly follow the teaching of Jesus Christ (the real meaning for the season), you learn to be humble. True humility means never to think of yourself. Is this possible? For the most part yes, but we are all human and time to time we will be selfish.
Christ said to love God first and constantly, then He said to love those about you as you would love yourself. If there is a gift you desire for yourself, give that gift to someone else. Humility is sacrifice. Humility is placing all others before yourself.
The ultimate example of humility was the very act of Christ going to the cross. A being so powerful He could move a mountain with just a thought, but He was so humble, so unselfish that He chose to take your place upon the cross. He so loved you that He died in your place.
Through this great humility and sacrifice it allowed Him to come back to live and with His resurrection our sins were shown be washed away if all we do is ask Him into our live and live as He did. Humbly, thinking of all before ourselves and loving and honoring God and His Son the Lord Jesus Christ who dies in your place. The real meaning behind Christmas
