TOPIC: THE RESURRECTION – FACT AND FULFILMENT.

DATE: 17TH APRIL, 2022

TEXT: ACTS 13:28-32

Let’s rise up together as we take our DECLARATION OF INCREASE in this Year of Increase:

Are you ready? Say with me:

I confess today that Jesus Christ is my LORD and Saviour. In Him I have life, His Abundant Life.

The Lord is my Light and Strength. As He is, so has He made me. By His Spirit I Increase in Word and in Wisdom. In Faith and in Favour.

The Lord has said: “In Blessing, I will bless you. In multiplying I will Multiply your Seed.”

So, I can boldly say: My God shall Increase me more and more. What I Place in God’s Hands grows into Overflow.

Though I begin small, my end shall Greatly Increase.

In this Year of Increase, I grow in Grace and in Strength. To be all that God wants me to be.

In Jesus’ Name – AMEN!

My Message today is titled: “THE RESURRECTION – FACT AND FULFILMENT”.

The Resurrection of Jesus Christ is the Foundation of the Christian Faith – His Death and His Resurrection.

And the Early Church was very Mindful of the Resurrection. We will be looking at that today.

Just to let you know – The Early Church, especially at the time the Acts of the Apostles and the times the Epistles were written; they didn’t have an Annual Easter Festival.

For the Early Church, they had Easter or the Resurrection every Sunday. So every Sabbath when they met; remember the Jewish Sabbath was on Saturday.

But because Jesus rose on the first day of the week (which today we call Sunday); the Church made it a habit that every Sunday they would worship Jesus Christ. They would go to gather, they would have Fellowship together.

… And gradually, Church Service began on a Sunday – Commemorating the Resurrection.

So they were having Easter, fifty two (52) weeks in a Year! Also every week they had an Easter Service.

Of course later on, the Church, because they acknowledged that Jesus Christ died around the days of the Passover, they also include the Easter Celebrations which occured at the time of the Passover.

So now we have both on Sunday, which commemorates the Resurrection – Every time we come on Sunday, it is Resurrection Sunday.

And then we also have the Historical one which occured around Passover – Which is the Resurrection Sunday we call the Resurrection or Easter now.

Today we are going to look at the Resurrection; and I am going to make a case that the Resurrection is a FACT and the Resurrection is also a FULFILMENT.

Let’s start with some Definitions:

WHAT IS A FACT?

When we say the Resurrection is a Fact, what do we mean?

It means something that is known and Proven to be true.

The Early Christians knew that the Resurrection of Jesus Christ was real; because Christ Proved it to them.

And so for them the Resurrection was not an Allegory, it was not a Metaphor, it was a Figure of Speech – It was Actual, it was Factual and it was Real (The Resurrection was Fact).

WHAT DO I MEAN BY FULFILMENT?

By Fulfilment I mean the achievement of something that is desired or Promised.

The Early Church also saw the Resurrection as the fulfilment of Promise that God had made in the Old Testament.

And so we are going to use these two (2) Foundations for my Message today.

And our Bible Text for today is in Acts 13:28-32 – I am going to give you a background to the Bible Text before I read it.

If you know your Bible well (and I suppose you should) in Acts 13, the Apostle Paul was commended by the Christians in Antioch. He and Barnabas were sent out as Missionaries to go and Preach the Gospel.

…. So the Apostle Paul started to go and Preach the Gospel.

And the Passage we are about to read is the first recorded Message of Paul in the New Testament.

So it is important in terms of the Content of what he was Preaching.

And you have to understand that Paul the Apostle was not Present when Jesus Christ was Ministering. He was not a Disciple of Jesus Christ. We don’t know whether he ever saw Him or ever heard Him.

But Paul didn’t know Jesus Physically. He wasn’t like Peter, James, John and the rest. Paul heard of Jesus later.

And at the time that this Account is taking Place in Acts 13, Paul had been a Christian for thirteen (13) Years! And so the things he said are quite recent in his Life. And he tells us the Message that the Early Church was Preaching.

… So this is Part of the Message and not the entire thing.

Acts 13:28-32 (NKJV)

28 And though they found no cause for death in Him, they asked Pilate that He should be put to death.

29 Now when they had fulfilled all that was written concerning Him, they took Him down from the tree and laid Him in a tomb.

30 But God raised Him from the dead.

31 He was seen for many days by those who came up with Him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are His witnesses to the people.

32 And we declare to you glad tidings—that promise which was made to the fathers.

As I said, Paul is Preaching this thirteen (13) Years, after the Resurrection.

Paul became a Christian three (3) Years after Jesus had Resurrected. And that is when Stephen was stoned and eventually led to the Convertion of Paul.

So, three (3) Years after; Jesus had resurrected, Paul became a Christian. This is ten (10) years after his Salvation – In total, that is thirteen (13) Years!

If for example, Paul was speaking in 2022 (at this time, in this Year); the event he is talking about happened in 2009 – That is thirteen (13) Years ago.

Now if I come here and I start talking about something that happened 2009, and all of you were around in 2009; you can tell whether I am telling a liar or I am telling you the truth. Is that it so?

So this is not far away from the event!

Paul cannot come and manufacture information. He is speaking in terms of a recent History that had happened to the Church.

… If you listen to his account, he says there are Witnesses here; there are People still alive who saw all the things I am talking about.

And he talked about the Death, the Burial, the Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. And he talked about the Evidence that was there (The People). And he said that all that happened was in fulfilment of what God said in the Old Testament. And that is where we will Proceed from here!

There are Three (3) Main FACTS that Paul stated:

  1. The first one is that JESUS REALLY DIED.

It may seems like a.very Simple Statement, when we say that “Jesus really died!”

You know, many times we say things without thinking through what we are saying. And without even fully believing what we are saying;

That Jesus really DIED – He didn’t enter into a comma, He didn’t go through a swoon.

… Jesus really died – The Guy died!

How do we know?

Well, the Gospels tells us that Jesus died – John 19:30-34.

Now why am I quoting John? It is because if you note; John and Jesus’ mother (Mary) were the only one of Jesus’ Disciples who were Physically Present at the Crucifixion.

Peter is not there, James is not there and the rest had ran away.

John is the only one who was there!

So John’s record is very important because he is watching what is going on and listening to the conversation.

Listen to what John says (in John 19:30-34): So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His Spirit.

… That’s how John describes the death of Jesus Christ – “He gave you His Spirit.

And then from Verse 33: But when they came to Jesus and saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs. But one of the Soldiers Pierced His side with a Spear, and immediately blood and water came out.

Now, the Witness of John is Multilayer – Why do I say it’s Multilayer?

He didn’t just say: “Jesus died or He gave up His Spirit.” That is one-layer. John said: “Jesus gave up His Spirit”.

But what is the other evidence that Jesus died?

You know, Crucifixion in the days of Jesus was a mainday event.

So, when you are crucified you didn’t die immediately. People hang on the Cross six (6) days, or sometimes one week.

When the Soldiers who hang you come, and they have to take you down from the Cross, they have to ensure that you will not run away.

So, the next day they will come and put you back on the Cross, and you continue your Suffering.

When Jesus was on the Cross, John says He gave up His Spirit! – That’s John’s Testimony.

The Soldiers came and they had to determine whether these guys on the Cross have to be incapacitated – So that they will not run away, for the next day Crucifixion. And they came to Jesus Christ, they certified that He is dead.

John says: “Jesus is dead”; the Soldiers are also saying: “Jesus is dead.” – Two layers!

They didn’t have a Stethoscope or Pulse Reader at that time. I don’t think they certify death the way we certify death – whether it’s Brain dead or Clinically dead.

… So their way to the certification of death is to make sure you are dead Properly.

A soldier took a Spear and Pierced his heart!

So, if the Crucifixion didn’t kill Him, His giving up His Spirit didn’t kill Him, maybe the Spear will kill him – Three layers of death!

That is the Testimony of John!

And John is saying: “We know, without any shadow of doubt that Jesus really died.

How do I know?

I was there!” He said: Father, I give myself up! The Soldiers said that He was dead.

It is so important because there are People who debate the death of the Lord Jesus Christ. But according to John, Jesus died definitely, without any apology.

It is like going to find Somebody who is dead and shooting him in the head, to ensure that he is dead – That is what happened with Jesus. He was DEAD.

  1. The second Fact is that JESUS WAS REALLY BURIED.

Why is that important?

Because burial is an acknowledgement of the People that you are dead.

You don’t bury People when you think they will come back to live – You bury People when you are sure, this is the end of the case.

Jesus was really buried.

Matthew 27:59-60; When Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and laid it in his New Tomb which he had hewn out of the rock; and he rolled a large Stone against the door of the Tomb, and departed.

Matthew 27:65-66; Pilate said to them, “You have a Guard; go your way, make it as secure as you know how.”

So they went and made the Tomb secure, sealing the Stone and setting the Guard.

Layers of Burial! – We have Layers of death. Multilayered burial.

What happened with the Burial of Jesus?

Joseph of Arimathea went to Pilate and says: “Pilate, give me the Body of Jesus, I am His follower.”

Pilate said okay, take His Body. He takes His Body down, takes Him to his Tomb, buries Him in his Tomb.

Now you have to understand – The Tomb of Joseph of Arimathea was very close to Calvary where Jesus Christ was Crucified.

It is not that the Cememtary is far from where He died.

The Tomb is just around where He is Crucified.

So conveniently, they took Him there to be buried because it was Preparation for the Feast of Passover and it was the Sabbath – So, they have to do it quickly.

Now after Jesus had been buried by Joseph, the Jewish Leaders went to Pilate and said: Sir, trouble is coming! Because this guy said (whilst He was alive) that He will rise again.

We have to ensure He doesn’t rise again!

So though He is DEAD and BURIED, we can’t end it there. We have to secure the burial.

Pilate said, okay go ahead and secure the Tomb.

So they went ahead and secured the burial – They put a Stone. They sealed the Stone, and they put a Guard at the Burial Ground.

… Four (4) Layers of Burial – They have to make sure the guy is buried, nothing is going to bring Him out.

And when the Bible talks about ‘a Guard’ it is not one Person – A Roman Guard was between twenty (20) to fifty (50) People.

… So that’s a lot of People.

A Guard is like a Platoon! – Meaning twenty (20) to fifty (50) People; watching a dead man in a Tomb.

With the Tomb sealed and covered; something Strange is going on.

… Jesus truly died, Jesus was truly buried.

  1. The third Fact: JESUS REALLY ROSE FROM THE DEAD.

He was really dead, really buried, really Resurrected.

How do we know that Jesus Resurrected?

Jesus did that in many ways:

John 20:24-29 – When Jesus Christ died, He rose again.

And the women came to report – Some of them said: “Jesus is alive!” How do we know? “The Grave is empty.”

… Oh, the Grave is empty, and so what?

Then Peter and John went: “Jesus is not in the Grave! But they didn’t see Jesus.

Then Mary came and said: “I saw Him, He looked like a Gardener.”

… Oh you know women; you can’t trust them!

Because you have to understand that Resurrection was not easy to believe. Just like you and I, it is not easy to accept that somebody resurrected.

I mean, all of us took Somebody to the Cemetery, put him six feet down, covered it, put a Tomb Stone on it. And then Somebody came and said: “The guy is walking there!”

These People were reasonable People like you and I – They weren’t about to just believe that Jesus is alive.

Jesus being alive was the most difficult thing for them to believe.

That’s why the Bible says that consistently they all denied it – John denied it, Peter denied it, everybody denied it.

Then that evening, whilst they were debating the denial – Because by this time it’s Sunday evening.

Resurrection Morning the women had come. Some said they saw Him; others said they didn’t see Him. Peter went to the Grave and there was Nobody there.

And then two (2) men from Emmaus, they were walking in the Night; they came and said: Guess what happened? – Jesus Christ was walking with us to our Village and He talked to us. And we are back to tell you, He is alive!

Whilst they are debating: ‘Can it be true?’ Then Jesus Christ appeared in the middle of them.

They said ooooh, this thing is getting serious – This is Him, this is Jesus. Their senses are shocked!

But there is one Disciple of Jesus (like you and I) who was not there – His name is Thomas. He was told “Thomas, Jesus appeared!”

And Thomas responded the way you and I would responded: Are you guys crazy?

Yes, we believed Him, we saw Him as the Miracle Worker but are you crazy? Please, don’t take this thing too far. Don’t disgrace yourselves.

So listen to Thomas’ Statement in John 20:25 – The other Disciples therefore said to him, “We have seen the Lord.” So he said to them, “Unless I see in His Hands the Print of the nails, and put my finger into the Print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I WILL NOT BELIEVE.”

… I like this guy. He’s a bit like me. I would not believe.

Thomas said – “I don’t believe!

So the next Sunday, the same condition. They are shut in, Jesus appeared – John 20:27-29:

And Then He said to Thomas, “Reach your finger here, and look at My Hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but believing.”

And Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!”

Thomas was the first Person to call Jesus Christ “GOD”.

Jesus said to him, “Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed”.

The Scripture doesn’t tell us whether Thomas really put his finger in there, but he saw Jesus and his Mind was blown in Pieces – The way your Mind would be blown in Pieces if you saw something like that.

He said: “My Lord and my God!” – What is this? What am I seeing? How is it Possible? And Jesus said to him, “Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

Why did Jesus say that?

Thomas was able to believe that Jesus was dead but he couldn’t believe that Jesus Christ was alive.

The first question you need to ask him is: “Mr. Thomas, how did you know Jesus was dead?”

He (Thomas) was not at Calvary – He didn’t go there! Only John and Mary were there. So he was not at the burial.

Joseph of Arimathea, and Probably Mary and others, and some of the women were there.

Thomas was not there! – How did he know Jesus Christ was dead?

He knew that Jesus Christ was dead, because he was told that Jesus was dead!

People came and said, listen, we were there, they put nails in His Hands – That is how he knew that they put nails in His Hands.

And they said “listen! One Soldier Pierced His side.” – That was how Thomas knew that Somebody had Pierced the side of Jesus with a Spear.

He wasn’t there, he didn’t see it but he believed it because he believed those who gave the Testimony that Jesus Christ had been Crucified, Jesus had been Pierced with a Spear.

So, the Question is: If you believed the death because some People told you. Why did you find it difficult to believe the Resurrection when the same People told you?

Because Thomas had “Selective Believe” – He is like many People, they want to choose what they believe.

Well, in the first Place – How do you know Jesus died?

It is in the Bible!

Well if you believed the Bible says Jesus died, why can’t you believe it when the same Bible says He is alive?

You can’t choose what you want to believe and which truth you will not believe. If you would believe the Witnesses of those who said He is dead; you must believe the Witnesses of those who say He is alive!

… That’s just the simple logic.

And that is the Problem Jesus had with Thomas – You believed them when they said I’m dead; but you didn’t believe it when they said I’m alive.

And Part of the reason Jesus Christ told Thomas that was because Thomas is like us – We are People who would not believe Jesus without seeing the Prints in His Hands and the scar in His Side.

That’s why Jesus said to him – “Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

So Jesus is saying to Thomas – There are many People coming after you. They would not be here to see me and I have to show you better way of believing does not look for Physical Evidence, but to trust the Witnesses who declared the fact to you.

… That is the better way!

It is said that this same Thomas (according to Church History) believed after Jesus Christ, went far away to India to Preach the Gospel. He Preached the Gospel and died. He was Martyred for his believe.

And he never Changed his opinion that Jesus Christ was alive.

Why? – Because the Evidence he saw that evening, in that room, was Complete and Solid, without any shadow of doubt.

You know there are People who say they don’t believe anything – As if they are Superior People.

How many of you believe there was a guy called Nelson Mandela? How many of you believe Mandela is dead? Did you ever meet Mandela? Did you shake his hands? Did you see his dead body? How do you know he is dead?

Somebody told you!

And the Person who told you was sitting in a Studio – He didn’t see Mandela dead. He didn’t touch his body. But he just said this is Breaking News: “Nelson Mandela the Apparthied Icon has Passed away!” – In a Studio in Atlanta (USA).

Then you in Africa believed Mandela is dead.

How do you know? – It is because Somebody told you!

How do you know there is war going on in Ukraine? Have you been to Ukraine? Have you been to Russia? Do you know Vladimir Putin; the man unleashing war to Ukraine? Have you shaken his hand before? – And you are on Facebook insulting him!

How do you know? – Somebody in a Studio told you!

And the Person didn’t stake his life to it. He just read it on a Teleprompter, and you believed it.

DMC NOTE: A TELEPROMPTER is a device Placed near or on a Television Camera that displays ‘Scrolling Text’, allowing a Person to read a Script while appearing to speak Spontaneously to the Camera.

The People who wrote the Holy Bible, they didn’t read it from a Teleprompter.

They died for what they believed in – They were beheaded; they were burnt alive; they were cut into Pieces; their children were Murdered infront of them; Women had children plucked out of their stomachs.

And none of them Changed the Story! – “We saw it, we know it, He died, He rose again. He is truly who He says He is!”

I don’t know about you:

I. Between the Man in the Studio telling me about the war I have never seen; and telling me about the People I have never seen. And then Someone who tells me about Someone Who shed His Blood so that I might be saved – If you ask me who I will believe; I will believe these guys!

II. Between the ones who tells me that there are Galaxies somewhere, ten Million Lights years away!

Have you been there? Have you travelled one Light Year ever before? Do you know what a Light Year looks like? – And we believe them!

And the man who says, I saw it and even if: You cut my head, I will not Change my Story; you kill my wife, I won’t Change my Story; you kill my children, I won’t Change my Story; you boil me in oil, I won’t Change my Story; you take out my intestines, I won’t Change my Story; you skin me alive, I will still not Change my Story;

Because it was such a “Compelling Force” when He showed up to me.

Not only that; even the Second Generation believes so much in the First Generation – And they believed without seeing.

And throughout the History of Christiandom, the reason we believe that Jesus Christ is alive, is because those Witnesses were “Credible Witnesses” – They died for their Witness.

And I believe their Witness – That Jesus Christ died, Jesus was buried and Jesus rose again – Hallelujah!

… That is the fact! Now let’s go to the Fulfilment.

THE FULFILMENT

Luke 24:44-48; Jesus was speaking to the two (2) Men at Emmaus – But I will only look at Verse 46:

Then He said to them, “Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day.”

Jesus is saying “it was written, it had to happen.” Promise had to be fulfilled. God had to do what He said He would do.

And what is the Fulfilment?

  1. The Fulfilment is that Jesus Christ is truly the “Promised Messiah” of the Scriptures.

What Isaiah spoke about, what the Psalmist spoke about, what all the other Prophets spoke about is true – Jesus is truly the “Promised Messiah”.

  1. Secondly, the Resurrection also shows that Jesus is Who He says He was.

Jesus said: “I Am the Good Shepherd: I laid down my Life for the Sheep.”

Jesus Christ Predicted His Death and Resurrection to the thief.

You see, one of the things I like about the Bible is the Gospel Writers – They didn’t Change the Story.

Because normally, as Human Beings – And when Jesus Christ was resurrected; you didn’t believe it.

And now you are writing the Story, you would say – “Others didn’t believe, but as for me, I believe!”

But none of the Gospel Writers said that.

They actually said that Peter denied Him; they told us of those who ran away; they told us how difficult it was to believe it.

They were “Honest People” reporting an “Honest Information” that Jesus Christ was Who He says He is.

And when Jesus spoke about His Death and Resurrection, He Predicted with accuracy – He said: “I will be betrayed by one of you; I will be giving over to the Chief Priest, who will give me over to the Gentiles. I will be condemned. I will be Crucified on the Cross. I will die. I will Rise again.

Do you know any Human Being who has been able to Predict his own end this way? – Nobody!

The Resurrection Proves that Jesus Christ is exactly who He said He is! – He is the Good Shepherd who laid down His Life for His Sheep.

  1. And the Resurrection also shows us that Jesus Christ achieved what He set out to achieve.

He Atone for the sin of the “First Adam”, He Paid the Price for the sins of the world. And He is the “First Sacrifice” for the Redemption of the Human Race.

  1. Not only is it a Fulfilment; the Resurrection is also a New Promise.

Jesus Christ was a Fulfilment of the “Old Promise”. But His Resurrection is just a at a “New Promise”; which will be fulfilled.

… The first one was fulfilled; the New Promise will also be fulfilled.

WHAT IS THE NEW PROMISE?

  1. The first Promise is that there is Life beyond Death.

Jesus Christ came back to tell us the Story – You know many times we say “Nobody has died and come to tell us what it is like.”

He died and came back to tell us: Behold I Am He who was dead and buried, and I am alive for evermore.

You want to know what is beyond the Grave? – Talk to the Man who came out from the Grave.

Can you imagine what the world would do if Somebody was Executed by Firing Squad – Bullets trained into the guy, Doctors certify his death. Three (3) days later he is walking the Streets of Accra (Ghana)?

Everybody would go and talk to him – So, where are you coming from? What is Life like there?” And whatever he says, everybody would believe.

If he says – “From now onwards, you have to walk on your head, we will believe because he has gone and come back.

Jesus Christ is the only One Who has gone and come.

You better believe what He says because the other People who are contending with Him, they went but they never came back!

… But He went and He came back by His “Will Power”.

He came back and told us that there is life beyond this!

  1. The Second Promise He gives to us is that Life beyond death is Real.

Look at the Resurrection of Jesus.

Jesus didn’t forget any information before Resurrection – He knew Thomas and He called his name. He knew Peter, John, Mary. He remembered People’s names and He remembered the name of Towns.

That means that in the Resurrection; we don’t forget Information.

And that is the Promise God is giving to you – You will know your Parents when you meet them; you will know your Siblings when you meet them.

So when we say: “God be with you till we meet again”; we are not talking rubbish! Because Jesus showed us, in the Resurrection we have Memory, Remembrance, Knowledge, Personality, Individuality – That was His Resurrection

Other Religions Preach a Resurrection that is different from this – Some say: “When you die, you become Part of Nature; you become Part of the Universe. You are like a drop of water in a Big Ocean.

It’s like what you see in the Lion Ring: The circle of Life – The Antelope eats the grass; the Elephant eats the Antelope. And then the Lion dies and becomes grass, and then the Antelope eats it.

That is absolute rubbish and nonesense – No matter where that theology came from.

Jesus Christ did not become grass – Our bodies may become, but the real man lives on! And is a conscious recognizing individual. And at Resurrection we get a New Body like Jesus Christ and you remembered your Acquaintances.

You live a Real Life!

That is Christianity! In Christianity, we don’t become one with the Universe.

Have you noticed these days – People don’t want to call God ‘GOD.’ They want to call Him ‘The Universe’.

You hear them say – “The Universe will bless you!”

What sort of thing is that!

Do People think when they say these things? – What universe!

Because my Bible tells me the Universe didn’t cause itself – In the beginning God caused the Universe.

If you don’t want to believe the cause , why do you believe His Creation?

But in the Creation, we have our Personalities, we have Life. We don’t just become air. Jesus Christ is not an Invincible Man!

This Jesus, when He rose up, He came in the midst of them – His Disciples saw Him. Thomas Probably touched Him. Mary touched Him, the Disciples touched Him because He had a Glorified Body.

And that is the Promise He gives to you! – That is the Christian Hope; that is the Hope of Resurrection.

And Jesus Christ says: If you believe in Him He will give you that Life.

This morning or as you read now on the Label of DMC, this same Jesus Christ is here to save you. And He is here to give you His Life, to turn your Life around, to Change your Life, to make you a Brand New Person.

If you would believe Him, He says: “Where I am, there you will be also.”

So, if you don’t know Him as your Lord and Saviour, you better know Him.

You say: “Pastor, I’m not even sure what I believe.”

You better believe Jesus Christ when He says it. You better believe the Witnesses when they gave their Life for it.

If you are here and you want this Life that Jesus Christ gives Free – He gives it to us Free.

And I want everybody to bow his or her head.

ALTAR CALL

He says in Revelation 3:20, Behold, I Stand at the Door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.

He is knocking at the Door of your heart – He can’t force Himself in. If you open the Door, He will come in.

If you are ready to open the Door or your heart for Jesus Christ to come in, lift up your Right Hand wherever you are.

If you are lifting up your hands, Please Stand up wherever you are.

God bless you!

Let’s Pray this Prayer together.

Say with me: Heavenly Father, I come to You today just as I am. I am a sinner, I cannot save myself.

I ask You Father – Save me, have Mercy on me and deliver me.

I believed Jesus Christ died for me; I believed He rose again from the dead because of me. And I receive Him today as my Lord and my Saviour.

I Thank You Father, for accepting me. In Jesus’ Name – Amen.

God bless you so much!

Thank you so much for staying all through to read.
