Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed Resurrection Sunday. "He is risen", the early church greeted one another with this salutation.
Ekklesia,
Grace to you.
When the Apostle John saw the Risen Lord, he reported: "And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: 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" (Revelations 1:17-18). He is alive forevermore.
"Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; and deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage" (Hebrews 2:14-15). He through death destroyed him that had the power of death and delivered us from fear of death.
- 1 Corinthians 15:1-5
The gospel is that Jesus died for our sins and rose again, all according to the Scriptures.
O DEATH, WHERE
IS
THY STING? O GRAVE, WHERE
THY VICTORY?
The sting of death
is
sin; and the strength of sin
is
the law. But thanks
be
to
God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
- 1 Corinthians 15:55-58
He is risen indeed.
Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the Scriptures: and that he was seen . . . .
