1 Corinthians 15:17-19
17 And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins. 18 Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. 19 If in Christ we have hope in this life only, we are of all people most to be pitied.
30 The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent, 31 because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed; and of this he has given assurance to all by raising him from the dead.”
Today we celebrate the fulfillment of the promise made to Abraham. The Seed has fulfilled His mission in being laid down into the ground dead so that He may rise to life and produce fruit. Jesus is ALIVE!
God no longer overlooks ignorance. The old has passed away. The new has come. He commands all people everywhere to repent because a day is coming where God will judge the world in His righteousness by the Man He appointed. God has given full assurance of this by raising that Man from the dead.
Rest assured, Jesus is alive and well and is coming back again.
