IF JESUS HAD NOT RISEN FROM THE DEAD

REV O. T. BENSON CHARGES THE CHURCH ON THE VICTORIES THE CHURCH HAS IN THE RESURRECTION OF CHRIST TO MARK EASTER SUNDAY

Rev. O. T. Benson revealed the victories the Church has in Christ’s Resurrection in a brief charge before leading the Congregation to a session of prayers. The Bible reading was taken from the book of Psalms 124: 1-8 and Mathew 28: 1-6. The minister noted at the beginning of the sermon that if Jesus did not die for us, we would still be in the dark. He went further to list the benefits of the Resurrection of Jesus:

  • It is the gateway to our victory: if Jesus had not been risen from the dead we would have no victory.
  • It is the gateway for our achievements: Christ’s Resurrection brought success to Christians.
  • His resurrection is the gateway to our dominion: it gives the believer the assurance that they are in-charge. We subdue and dominate because of the Resurrection of Christ.
