Jesus is ALIVE!

This is Palm Sunday
Holy Week is starting
Maundy Thursday
Good Friday
AND Easter – next Sunday

All around the world
Churches (normally)
Would have been meeting together
To proclaim: “Jesus is alive, risen from the dead, Hallelujah”

But in these exceptional times
The church meeting in homes
(In isolation)
Can still make this declaration

The challenge for all of us
Is not only to declare it
But also to understand it

Then we will be more able to live every day
In the fullness of the risen Lord

So, what do I mean by this
Ephesians 2:4 – 6 NKJV
Talks about the greatness of God’s love for us
In how He “raised us up together, and
made us sit together in the heavenly places
in Christ Jesus”

AND
John 16:7 NKJV
“Nevertheless I tell you the truth.
It is to your advantage that I go away;
for if I do not go away,
the Helper will not come to you;
but if I depart, I will send Him to you.”

Jesus Christ NOW is seated in Heaven
The first born from the dead

He can ONLY be in one place
As He is still in human form
We know this
Because He met with disciples
After the resurrection
And ate with them

The Holy Spirit,
On the other hand
Is NOT limited to one location

1 Corinthians 6:19
Tells us that our bodies are temples
Of the Holy Spirit
Wherein He dwells

OK
So long explanation
And in no way exhaustive
But suffice it to say
That the Physical Jesus is in Heaven
Seated on the right-hand side
Of the Father

Jesus and the Father
Are in Heaven
The Holy Spirit is…
EVERYWHERE

Colossians 2:9 NKJV
“For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily”
When you see Jesus
You also are seeing the Father
And the Holy Spirit

Therefore,
The Holy Spirit is IN us
So is Jesus IN us
So is the Father IN us

Also,
Jesus is IN Heaven
So is the Father IN Heaven
So is the Holy Spirit IN Heaven
AND
So are we IN Heaven
(If we know Jesus as our Lord and Saviour)

This being the case
We should live life
Every day
From this truth
And NOT just at Easter time
