Below is Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday message. If there were no death on the Cross there would be no Resurrection.
Thanks for allowing me to share.
"My Redeemer Liveth"
...I know that my redeemer liveth, and that He shall stand at the latter day upon the earth.
Job makes a profound declaration with his statement regarding the Lord our Savior Jesus Christ as the One who would redeem His people and at the latter day will rule His kingdom from earth. Through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, Job looked forward to the day when Jesus Christ would pay man's sin debt.
Also, included in Job's statement is an expression of his faith in the Lord God who would heal him of his pain and suffering. Job never lost faith in God because in Job's heart he knew he had lived as God commanded and his afflictions were permitted by God Himself. Job knew in his heart that God had the power to heal him if it was God's will and all that he lost would be restored.
What does this say for you and me today? Believers today and for generations to come are encouraged to have Job like faith and never lose heart in the midst of our suffering. During the age of grace Jesus Christ is our Redeemer and is alive forever. Christ suffered for our sake; therefore, we as believers will suffer for His sake. Are you willing to suffer for Christ's sake? Remember Christ will never leave nor forsake His own. Do you have the patience and faith of Job who never doubted God?
Christ our Redeemer lives.
