The Resurrection has Already Begun 04/18/2017

The resurrection of people from sin is the evidence they will be resurrected from death: And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath He quickened together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses (Colossians 2: 13).

The deliverance of the soul from sin assures the deliverance of the body from death: "Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace you are saved) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 2:5-6)."

The Spirit of God that changes the believer’s conduct from evil will also raise the believer’s body to eternal life: But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwells in you (Romans 8:11).

Throughout history the world has been able to see the Spirit that raised Christ from the grave working inside believers. When Rome was leading singing Christians to their death, a pagan observed, “These Christians die well.” The Spirit gave them supernatural joy, enabling them to sing as they faced a cruel death.

Chuck Colson was once the hatchet man for President Richard Nixon. He was famous for his brutal treatment of other people. He was dead in sin. Then Colson received the Spirit of God into his life and he
was transformed into a man that has given his life serving and helping prison inmates.

The thousands of people who are miraculously raised from a life of sin are evidence they will be miraculously raised from physical death.
