The Resurrected Christ

John 20:1-18

In unity with Christ I realized I am resurrected unto life, light and power of God.

Much emphasis is always laid on the cross and the tomb of Jesus but from the truth surrounding the teaching of Jesus Christ, we should always be more concentrated on the risen Christ and no longer on the crucified Jesus. He is no longer on the cross. He is no longer in the tomb. It took the authority of the Government and the troops that enforces the authority to roll the stone on top of the tomb and protect it so that no one could penetrate to steal away the body of Jesus. But at the appointed time the stone was rolled out by a power higher than all human authority. I believe this power merits our attention and it is the supreme authority of God... “be still and know that I am God.”

Easter is the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. Without the resurrection, Jesus could have been counted as one of the prophets. But with the resurrection He automatically becomes the ultimate wayshower for He said “and if I be lifted up, I will draw all men unto me.” The inner meaning and spiritual significance of Easter is the awakening and raising to spiritual consciousness of the I AM in man which has been dead in trespass and sin and buried in the tomb of materiality.

And Jesus said, “I came that they may have life and have it more abundantly. With His resurrection, we have seen the raising up of the whole man — spirit, soul and body — into the Christ consciousness of life and wholeness.

Jesus Christ is a living example of all that He wants us to do and be. His redeemed perfected body could not be held by the tomb of materiality because he lived by his teachings. When he said “You must be perfect as your Father in heaven is perfect” He was talking about the redemption of the body which He accomplished through the quickening power of the Holy Spirit.

God’s eternal and purified life is always available to them who rise to the realization of eternal indwelling life. All thoughts of limitation and inevitable obedience to material laws are left in the tomb of materiality. The birth of Jesus Christ into the race thought is to reconstruct it in conformity with the divine law. He thus becomes our wayshower, our savior and our Helper... “I lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.”

The light of truth in Christ Jesus has illumined our minds and may we rise up in the majesty of our divine sonship and proclaim to be the children of the Most High, free from all belief in sin, sickness and death. We are resurrected into life, light and power of God. You are blessed in the name of Jesus Christ as you look up to the Holy Spirit for guidance and instructions.
