Resurrection of Jesus, Why?

April 16, 2022

1. Fulfillment of the promise of the Father to him after his death by crucifixion.

2. Only after he is alive, will he receive the “spiritual power to in-dwell in us” for our “sanctification”.

3. As JC is the Comforter/Helper/High Priest, in-dwelling in us by/through the “spirit-power”, we will then be guided and directed to the truth and develop good judgment and wisdom to be one with the Father as JC is one with the Father….all in one family with similar take on what is good or bad.

4. As proof of what will happen to others(resurrection) in the future “at appointed time and season”.

I cannot envision a “kingdom of God ” not managed by humans, can you?

Currently, while we see human governments controlled by humans, strictly speaking, our present world (like it or not) is controlled or subject to “angelic powers”, the “god of this world” as in, 2 Corinthians 4:4, “Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.”(Living Translation).
But in Hebrews 2:5, the future world’s “executive powers” will not be with angelic being like Satan, as in “And furthermore, it is not angels ( even Satan) who will control the future world we are talking about.”(New Living Translation).

The truth is, and one can bank on this, that the future world will not be subjected (again) to angels. This is why “humans” need to change into “sons of God” by adoption into the “God-kingdom”. Sons of God are immortal and of higher category than angelic spirit-beings. This is the destiny of humans to be “sons of God”
