The resurrection of Jesus is a historical event that really happened, is not just a myth or a lie like some people say it is. It is so important that history is named after this, meaning it impacted the whole world and changed history forever. Jesus the Son of God did die on the cross and then resurrected from the dead. He did what no human has ever done or will do, all because of his unending love and grace for us. This has been concluded through a lot of resources like the Bible, circumstantial and historical evidence.
His plans are lengthy. Creation occurred millions of years ago and human life has suffered regressions and progressions in the fallen state. In our terrestrial history the coming of Messiah seems greatly delayed. Our impatience seems to have no impression on the eternity of God to whom a thousand years are like but an evening gone. We long for redemption.
Creation being 24 hours also helps prove the age of the Earth. If the days of creation were not 24 hours there would be no way to tell how old the Earth is. This helps Christians when it comes to the fossil record theories. We know that fossils were made after Adam rebelled. If they happened before then this means the Bible would have a contradiction.
“The Roman Army was composed entirely of Germans” but the worst part was that the army could not even defend their own territory (DBQ, Doc. 5.) “In the late 300s a nomadic Central Asian people, the Huns, stormed out of the east and sent the Germanic tribes fleeing. Imperial defences in the east managed to hold, but those in the west were soon overwhelmed. The speed and ferocity of the Huns struck terror in the people they attacked.” (Holt p.191).
As Genesis progresses, Joseph is able to reunite with Jacob, and his brothers. Joseph forgave his brothers, and even invited them to remain with him in Egypt. Joseph never gave up hope even after being put in a tough situation. Joseph did all his work, and still prayed to god, and was blessed enough to not live a life that the average slave did. Joseph had a family, a home, and was able to support his family through hard work.
According to Scripture, Jesus died, was buried and rose from the grave on the third day. One of these days he is going to come back. “For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And she dead in Christ will rise first.”(1 Thessalonians 4:16) The ones that believe in Christ are guaranteed not to remain dead and will be resurrected unto eternal
In the Garden of Gethsemane Jesus Christ suffered harsh death, atoning for the people’s sins. The burden of the sins was bravely felt by Jesus, who did not step back from taking the ownership of atoning all sins.As written in What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice his life?, ” The Savior tells us:” For behold, I… have suffered these things for all, that they might not suffer… even as I.”(Doctrine and Covenants 19:16-17)”.Atonement symbolizes a new thought process and a change in priorities about the truth, and turns one’s soul to God. Through the ultimate power of atonement, one wishes for goodness to give rise to a change in heart, a desire to quit evil and turn good. The reason for god not forgiving one for a sin without atonement is that god’s character of perfection is paradoxical.
The Bible tells Christiansin the book of John 3: 16, to love one another just the same way God loves them and sent His only son to rescue them from sin. The Bible does not want Christians to go in to war with fellow Christians nor to seek revenge but to ask God for help. Christians are allowed to choose their leaders and ask God for guidance in order to choose the right leader (Dockery &Thornbury, 2002). Leadership also comes from God and whoever has been elected as the leader holds a divine position that should be respected by the followers. God expects leaders to be wise in their decisions and rule justly.
And as the Omega, He will bring to complete finality the world of evil, and usher in a new beginning for a perfect world of righteousness. This is what the book of Revelation is all about. In this chapter, Jesus is revealed as walking among the seven lampstands (representing the church), holding the seven stars in His right hand (representing the angels of the seven churches), His eyes like flames of fire, out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword and His face like the sun shining in all its brilliance. He stands as the Judge of the whole
I would like to point out two reasons: 1. Christ’s death was significant because it met the legal requirement for forgiveness of sins. The prophet Isaiah under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit said that He was wounded for our transgressions ( Isaiah 53:5) . Yes because of Christ death forgiveness is not only prophetic but possible for
