Christ Is Risen. Go Quickly and Tell…

Israel Garden Tomb EntranceThe “Garden Tomb” in Israel.
1 Corinthians 15:17
And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.

Thankfully, the Cross on Calvary is empty~ The tomb where He lay is empty.

Beware those teachers who would deny the power of the Resurrected Christ to have paid for ALL sins of the whole world. As He said on the Cross, “It is finished”!!.

Here is such a denial, according to the guru of Lordship “salvation” John MacArthur:

Salvation isn’t the result of an intellectual exercise. It comes from a life lived in obedience and service to Christ as revealed in the Scripture; it’s the fruit of actions, not intentions. There’s no room for passive spectators: words without actions are empty and futile…The life we live, not the words we speak, determines our eternal destiny (John MacArthur, Hard to Believe, p. 93).


Now the exciting and joyful Good News:

Matthew 28:1-7
[1] In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.

[2] And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

[3] His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:

[4] And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.

[5] And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.

[6] He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

[7] And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.

We believe in a living resurrected Savior Who was crucified, buried and rose again as our substitute sin-debt payment. Jesus alone is the object of our faith.

  1. I shared Jack, and this is my comment underneath your post.

    PLEASE NOTE: The resurrection of Jesus and the gospel ASSURES us we WILL rise again. If you do not believe the gift is ETERNAL then you have not believed the gospel. (No, I am not suggesting that if you once believed that the gospel was eternal life was a free gift, that you lost it later because of false teachers…)

    I am only saying, if you have never believed the gospel of grace, that the gift is ETERNAL LIFE through Jesus Christ our Lord, then you have believed another gospel and it will not save. PLEASE, re-read John.

    ►that Jesus DIED and ROSE AGAIN, (gospel in short)
    even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
    For this we say unto you
    ►by the word of the Lord,
    that ►we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
    ►For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:
    ►and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
    (assuming we are still alive)
    ►►►then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:
    ►►►and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
    Wherefore COMFORT one another with these words. 1 Thess 4:14-18


  2. Indeed, Jack – the thrill of their seeing that empty tomb, seeing the angel and hearing his proclamation that their Lord, OUR LORD, is risen and then realizing that Jesus had conquered death must have been overwhelming!! How sad that the LS folks can’t appreciate the significance of His death and resurrection. Instead of rejoicing in the completed work of Christ in purchasing our salvation with His shed blood, canceling the debt we owed, their work of earning it themselves is then just beginning. What’s there to rejoice about in that?

  3. Jack, as believers, we have Christ’s imputed righteousness, as scripture so clearly states.

    Romans 4:24-25, 5:1-2:

    [24] But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead;
    [25] Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.
    [1] Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
    [2] By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

    There is no hope in the works-oriented false gospels of the Lordship “salvationists.”

  4. Thanks Kim,

    I say the same… Hallelujah!!

    I am not a very emotional person but I found myself getting very emotional while reading and recording those scripture verses.

    Just imagine their emotion and Joy when “Mary Magdalene and the other Mary” approached the tomb and were told “He is not here for He is risen as He said.”!!!

    What a Savior!!! He IS RISEN!!

    In Jesus Christ eternally, Jack

  5. Thanks Mark,

    I appreciate you but — Please, look up to Jesus, not me. I am nothing more than a sinner saved by God’s Grace.. trying to share the Word and that Good News of the Gospel while exposing those who would pervert it in any way.

    In Jesus Christ eternally, Jack

  6. God bless you Jack for your faithful and uncompromising stand for the Gospel of Grace Alone, thru Faith Alone in Christ Alone– i look up to you brother. He Is Risen!

  7. “Hallelujah! What a Savior!”
