Easter 2021 Resurrection to Reward or Wrath ©2021 WF Cobb Truthbase.net DailyTruthbase.blogspot   Bonus: Mt 28:6 “come and see”

 Mt 16:16 “You are The Christ/Messiah, the Son of the living God.” 20 He commanded His disciples to tell no one that He was Jesus The Christ. 21 Jesus began to show to His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders, chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and be raised the third day. 23"Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men." 24 said to His disciples, "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross Lk=daily, and follow Me 25 whoever desires to save his life/soul will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. 26 what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? 27 Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, then He will reward each acc to his works

 1Pt 1:3 Blessed be God...abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope dia/thru the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead

Jn 11:24 Martha: "I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day." 25 Jesus:  "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, tho he may die, he shall live. 27 Yes Lord, I believe that you are The Christ who is to come into the world.

Jn 5:22 all judgment committed to Son 23 not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him. 24 Most assuredly,  he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation 3:19, but has passed pft from death into life. 25 the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God... 27 Son of Man 29 and come forth --- those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation. (Dan 12:2 everlasting life or shame-contempt)

III. Holy, glory-bound believers tap into Resurrection Power and Glory of Christ by suffering w/ Him to do God's will Eph 1:19

 Phil 3:10 My determine purpose is that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and fellowship of His sufferings,

1Pt 4:13 but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ's sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.

being conformed to His death, 11 if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.

 1Pt 4:1 Therefore since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, 2 that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts/desires of men, but for the will of God.

 1Pt 3:21 saves us: baptism (not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the pledge of a good conscience toward God), dia/means-basis the resurrection of JC

Rm 6:4 buried with Him thru baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. 5 For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection, 6 knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin. See Ch 8   7 For he who has died has been freed from sin. 8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, 9 knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. 10 For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God.

11 Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

12 do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts.  See “Ain't Gonna Reign No More” -Truthbase.net
