SERCHING FOR THE LIVING AMONG THE DEAD



Pastor Tim P. Blaisure – 04/17/22 – Easter Service

Intro: Some say there is no God, and the Bible says they are fools. There are others who believe there are many ways to heaven, and they are wrong, others believe in dead gods and things. But the Word of God says that only, Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. There is only one true way because there is only one who lived a sinless life, died, and rose again. Let’s look at what Easter or as we say Resurrection day is all about.

Foundation Scriptures:

Luke 24:1-7 NLT

But very early on Sunday morning the women went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared.

2 They found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance.

3 So they went in, but they didn’t find the body of the Lord Jesus.

4 As they stood there puzzled, two men suddenly appeared to them, clothed in dazzling robes.

5 The women were terrified and bowed with their faces to the ground. Then the men asked, “Why are you looking among the dead for someone who is alive?

6 He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead! Remember what he told you back in Galilee,

7 that the Son of Man must be betrayed into the hands of sinful men and be crucified, and that he would rise again on the third day.”


I. YOU WON’T FIND JESUS IN THE GRAVE:

A. He is not dead.

B. He is no longer in the tomb.

C. He predicted a short death.

D. He cannot be found like other so-called gods and leaders, dead.


II. YOU WILL FIND JESUS ALIVE!

A. He is ALIVE!

B. He has a new body.

C. He bears the scars of death but is no longer dead.

D. He walked among the living for 40 days before returning to heaven, on the right hand of the Father.


III. YOU WILL FIND JESUS WAITING FOR YOU:

A. Jesus died for your sin and rose from the dead to complete the payment so that you would not have to live and die in your sin.

B. Jesus showed himself and the scars to prove forgiveness was available for all.

C. Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to draw you to Himself and for eternity.

D. Jesus loves you and wants you to live for Him and with Him for eternity.


CONCLUSION:

Don’t look for your Redeemer among the dead. HE IS ALIVE!

He is Interceding for you at the right hand of our Heavenly Father right now. He said He would never leave us or forsake us.

We do not go to hell because of our sins now because they were paid for. We go to heaven or hell depending on weather or not we accept the sacrifice Jesus made for us.

If you accept Him and live for Him, you will be with Him for eternity.

If you reject Him and live for yourself, then you will spend eternity separated from Jesus for eternity.
