HE AROSE (1-3) – Dr. Paul Enenche

ANCHOR SCRIPTURE(S): LUKE 24:1-10; MATTHEW 28:1- 7
MESSAGE TOPIC:

SERVICE OBJECTIVE(S):
1. Understanding the implication of the Resurrection
2. Understanding the secret of access to Resurrection power

The Cross is the central message of Christianity
The value of Christianity is in the reality of Calvary
A cross-less Christianity is impactless, valueless and useless Christianity
The sacrifice on the Cross, as well as the resurrection of the Lord, is the distinguishing quality of Christianity
Christianity is the only religion that the Founder died to save the faithful
He died the death that we should have died so that we can live the life that He lives
He took our place in death so that we can take His place in life

WHAT IS THE IMPLICATION OF JESUS ARISING (WHAT DOES ‘HE AROSE’ MEAN)?
1. He is Alive (Rev. 1:18; Matt. 22:32; John 10:10; Eccl. 9:4)
He is a God that is alive not a dead god
He is the God of vibrant and lively people
He is alive means that there is hope for you in the land of the living; you are not living a hopeless or helpless life (Eccl. 9:4)

2. He interrupted and intercepted the plans and agenda of the enemy (Acts 2:23-24; Job 5:12)
He is a Specialist in interrupting and intercepting the agenda of darkness

3. He broke natural laws and protocols (Heb. 9:27; 1Cor. 15:26)
The resurrection presents to us the power to break natural orders ad protocols

4. He began again (Micah 7:8; Prov. 24:16)
It is possible to begin again
By the mystery of the Resurrection, you can come out of whatever the devil has put you in and begin again
It doesn’t matter what the enemy tries to do to you, it is possible to rise again
What is the end with man is the beginning with God
Man’s extremity is always God’s opportunity
When the devil has done his worst then the stage is set for God to do His best
The devil may have the first say in your life, family, situation or nation but God will always have the final say

5. He kept His promise (Matt. 28:6; 20:18-20; Num. 23:19; Ps. 89:33-35)
He says what He means and means what He says; He says what He will do and does what HE says
The resurrection is a confirmation of the immutability of God’s counsel

6. He disappointed the expectations of the enemy (Matt. 27:62-66)

7. He is the Specialist in impossibilities (Isa. 14:24-25,27; Jer. 32:17, 27; Col. 2:15)
The greatest display of power was displayed at resurrection
God is ushering you into a world of all possibilities by the power of the resurrection

8. He is the God Who is in control of all situations and circumstances (Ps. 110:1; 24:7-9)
He does what He wants, when He wants and how He wants
The devil is not in control in your life, family or destiny; God is in control!
God doesn’t have a passive say in the issues of your life, He has the final say
Don’t over-empower the devil, witches or wizards

9. He is the God of no limits (Acts 2:22-24; 5:25)
He is the God that cannot be limited or incarcerated
By the Resurrection, you step into a world of no limits
It is not where they kept you that matters, it is where God wants you because the verdict of man is not the judgment of God

10. He is the God of drastic surprises (Gen. 45:5; 29:31; 1Cor. 2:6-8)
He has the ability to take the enemy unawares
He gives the enemy what nothing can prepare the enemy for
When the devil thought he was resisting God by killing Jesus he didn’t know he was assisting God in bringing God’s Own plan to pass
God is relocating and repositioning your life

11. He is the God Who does not know defeat (Ex. 15:3; Ps. 46:9-10)
If you are connected to the God Who always wins, you can’t lose

12. He is the God Who is highly exalted (Phil. 2:9-10)
He is the God Who can’t be kept down

KEYS TO EXPERIENCING THE POWER OF RESURRECTION:
1. The knowledge of God (Phil. 3:10; Hos. 6:1-3; 2Pet. 1:2)
The Revelation of Himself to Moses was the release of power to Moses
There are depths, realms and dimensions in God that we don’t know
When you shift in dimensions of the knowledge of God, you shift in realms of glory, power and grace
The currency of glory is revelation; the currency of grace is light

2. Death to self (Rom. 6:8; John 12:24; 3:30)
It is when we have died with Him that we are qualified to rise with Him
You must minimise your humanity so that he can maximise His Divinity
Fullness of self is emptiness of God

PRAYERS
Father, thank You for Your Word to us today. To You be all the glory Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

Father, pull me to know You like I have never known before and help me to decrease in myself so that You can increase in me, in Jesus’ Name.

Father, engrace me to know You more. Help me to know Your will and do Your Will. Father, I release myself and I drop my arrogance, pride and ostentation. Take Your place in my life, in Jesus’ Name.

Father, I come before You today and I ask Lord that You will keep Your promise in my life and family. Father, I step into the world of all possibilities by the Body and Blood of Jesus. Father, in my life disappoint the expectations of the evil ones and take absolute control of my life, family, destiny and situation, in Jesus’ Name.
