What do you stand to gain from the resurrection of Lord Jesus who is jesus? Truly, the purpose of Christ’s coming to earth is what we will gain after His resurrection, which is the salvation of our souls. However, we also have post resurrection blessings and authority of Lord Jesus Christ available to us.
And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen – Matthew 28:18-20 (NKJV).
Our Lord Jesus Christ went as were prophesied by the prophets. And all things were fulfilled as said concerning Him. Also, He suffered as said and now He has entered into His glory. These show that Jesus is really the Christ and the son of God. And that any other thing yet to be fulfilled concerning Him will surely come to pass too.
Now, after the resurrection, Jesus showed Himself and communed with the disciples many days before ascending into heaven. And during this period He taught and gave them instructions, which are relevant to us also.
When Peter, John, and Mary Magdalene went to the tomb of Christ, only Mary got to see Jesus there. This is because she waited longer than the other two persons. And she ended up being the first to see Jesus after the resurrection. Therefore, the longer you tarry in God’s presence, in the word and prayer, the more you encounter the Son.
The disciples gathered in one place for the fear of the Jews. And when the Prince of Peace entered into their midst, He pronounced peace unto them. This He did each time He visited them after the resurrection. And by this pronouncement, he cancelled or dissolved every storm, fear, or disturbance in them. So, if you have Christ in you so also do you have the peace of God in you. Therefore, at this time, you need to receive the peace that Jesus has given you and be at rest.
You can only maximize the post resurrection blessings with the help of the Holy Spirit. So, Christ asked His disciples not to step out without the baptism of the Holy Spirit. This came upon them with the evidence of speaking in tongues. So, the Spirit of God endures you with the power to operate effectively with great results as a child of God. This empowerment Jesus sent after He ascended into heaven.
While Jesus was with the disciples they did not understand the scriptures and didn’t notice that Jesus was fulfilling scriptures concerning Him. This was also the case after He rose up. However, before ascending into heaven, Christ opened their understanding to comprehend the scriptures. So, also, when you accept and believe in the risen Christ, your understanding is also opened.
