TOPIC: Defeated Forever
READ: Luke 24:1-12
- Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.
And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.
And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.
And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:
And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?
He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,
Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.
And they remembered his words,
And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest.
It was Mary Magdalene and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and other women that were with them, which told these things unto the apostles.
And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not.
Then arose Peter, and ran unto the sepulchre; and stooping down, he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves, and departed, wondering in himself at that which was come to pass.
MEMORISE (Open Heaven For Teens 18th April 2022)
So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. – 1 Corinthians 15:54
Open Heaven For Teens 18th April 2022 MESSAGE
When Jesus told His disciples in John 14:6 that He is the way, the truth and the life, I am sure they would have been very glad that they were with the right person. The time then came for Him to fulfil purpose. He was tried, crucified and then died. By then, I’m sure the disciples would have felt it was a big mistake to have trusted in Jesus. No wonder they forgot all that He told them about His death. They also forgot all they had done in His name and some of them went back to fishing.
However, the disciples later understood Jesus’ victory over death when Mary Magdalene and some women found the tomb empty. In Revelation 1:18 , Jesus said:
“I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.”
Are you scared of death? As a child of God, you shouldnt be, because you have also defeated death forever. Hence, children of God dont die, they sleep and translate into glory to be with the Lord forever in Heaven. This is why I am comforted that when I get to Heaven, I will see my son again.
KEY POINT(Open Heaven for Teens 18th April 2022)
Children of God don’t die, they sleep and become translated into glory.
