(Romans 8:11 NLT) The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you.
√ Easter can be EXPERIENCED not just celebrated.
(Luke 10:17-20 NIV) The seventy-two returned with joy and said, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name.” He replied, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”
(John 14:1 NIV) “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?
√ Jesus offers more than a better NOW. He offers a better PLACE.
(John 11:25-26 NIV) Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
(1 Thessalonians 4:13-14, 18 NLT) And now, dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died so you will not grieve like people who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him the believers who have died.. . . So encourage each other with these words.
√ Believe on Jesus: Earth is as close to HELL as you will ever get. It only gets BETTER.
√ Not Believing on Jesus: Earth is as close to HEAVEN as you will ever get. It only gets WORSE.
(1 John 5:13 ASV) These things have I written unto you, that you may know that you have eternal life even unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God.
