Resurrected and Gone
Greetings in the precious name of Jesus
Well I pray that each of you are doing well and that the hand of God is holding you above all trials and problems of life as we struggle to make our little notch in this seemingly crazy world in which we live… And, I do pray that you’re following the theme of things today as together we come to worship the resurrection of Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Yes, Jesus our first fruits of the resurrection and that we come to realize that one day, perhaps before most realize; that those who belong to Christ will too be resurrected from this world. Yes GONE to a better place called Heaven. I’d like to use this song ‘GONE’ as a part of our message today, that you and I might ponder this awesome meaning of the words; Resurrected and Gone.
Verse 1 -
now for OUR TEXT: Please open you KJV Bibles to;
1. I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my
As we read these verses of scripture we find the safety of the godly…
must not rely upon men and means, instruments and second causes.
Shall I depend upon the strength of the hills? upon princes and
great men? No; my confidence is in God only. Or, we must lift up our
eyes above the hills; we must look to God who makes all earthly
things to us what they are. We must see all our help in God; from
him we must expect it, in his own way and time. This psalm teaches
us to comfort ourselves in the Lord, when difficulties and dangers
are greatest. It is almighty wisdom that contrives, and almighty
power that works the safety of those that put themselves under God's
protection. He is a wakeful, watchful Keeper; he is never weary; he
not only does not sleep, but he does not so much as slumber. Under
this shade they may sit with delight and assurance.
Concerning the departed;
Luke 20: 36, 38
Jesus teaches here in Luke that It is common for those who design,
to undermine any truth of God, to load it with difficulties. And
most folks wrong themselves, and wrong the truth of Christ, when
these folks form their notions of the world that there are so many
false gods and religions. And yes, they worship dead gods. The
followers of the Allah’s, Mohamed’s, the Buda’s, the Smiths, and
others of this world. There are more worlds than one; a present
visible world, and a future unseen world; so let everyone compare
this world and that world, and give the preference in his thoughts
and cares to that which deserves them. Heaven or Hell. If Heaven
then Believers shall obtain the resurrection from the dead; that is
the blessed resurrection. And as for the inhabitants of that other
world; we cannot express nor conceive…
But of our ponderings of life and Our Frailties
we look unto God instead of at ourselves and our circumstances, our
perspectives change. Do not get bogged down in the circumstances of
life but rather place you trust in the Heavenly Father. In our
greatest health and prosperity, every man is altogether vanity, he
cannot live long; he may die soon. This is an undoubted truth, but
we are very unwilling to believe it. Therefore let us pray that God
would enlighten our minds by his Holy Spirit, and fill our hearts
with his grace, that we may be ready for death every day and hour. I
am waiting and can hardly wait for this old broken down body to be
resurrected and changed in a moment and twinkling of an eye.
1 Corinthians 15: 50, 54
50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the
kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
so; What wait I for? My Hope is in Thee O Lord… Where is your hope
today? Are you ready for the resurrection of your body? I pray when
the time comes for us to depart this old world that you too shall be
Heaven bound; Yes; Resurrected and Gone.
what about those who aren’t ready? Just what does, “Gone” mean to
them? Well, It shall be a terribly sad day for that person who is
lost. For GONE will mean his life in all of eternity shall be in the
flaming fires of Hell. Forever to burn, yet not consumed, but in
total pain and screaming alongside all those who have rejected
Oh, I pray that you aren’t among those who are lost but when that “GONE” comes into your life and that you’ll spend all of eternity in Heaven with all the saved and in the presence of Our Saviour, Jesus.
Thank you so much for coming and until we meet again,
May the angels watch over you this next week and may Our Heavenly Father fill your hearts in His love and give you the victory in Jesus.
