What an apt question!

Why seek ye the LIVING GOD among SHAMANS and SORCERERS?


How can the Saviour be found in a place where the leader boasts of bringing LIVE SNAKES and SCORPIONS from the bodies of his followers?

When did Peter or Paul, Isaiah or Daniel bring butterflies from anyone's body?

(Hoping the Moderator of Nairaland will allow you read this).

Myer:


The only flaw in your argument is that unlike a ghost he was able to be touched and felt. As observable in Mary Magdalena hugging him when he appeared to her and his disciple Thomas feeling the nail holes in his hands.

So technically his ascension to heaven in a physical body makes no sense.

We were not there. Anyone can write anything to propagate an agenda, an agenda that has reduced Africans to believers of anything and not thinkers about anything.

The devil is not happy, Lol!

There must be something good about this thread, if so.

Junks to some... pearls to others...

Perhaps people like @CodeTemplar were the reasons Jesus gave us this warning:

Matthew 7:6

Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

So this is not meant for such ones who don't know the spiritual value of what we give, but for those do.

When Jesus Christ resurrected,He led captivity captive, and gave gifts to men, Ephesians 4:8

One of the advantages of His resurrection is that He gave gifts to people.

He also captured every captivity.

Everything that captured people was itself captured by Jesus Christ.

Why Seek Ye The Living Among The Dead? He Is Risen!

Jesus meant everything to His disciples, they had invested their whole life's worth on Him having forsaken their all to follow Him. So when He died, it seemed that their whole world had crumbled and that their life's worth of investment had gone down the drain.

So everything seemed to come to a total standstill for them, as upon Him they'd put all their hopes, trust, confidence, dreams and aspirations, even their lives, so after He died, it seemed an investment gone bad, from which they now had to start afresh, even from ground zero.

Nonetheless some still retained hope that it
wasn't over yet even after His death, hence they would rise up early and go to the grave where He was laid to anoint His body. But to their greatest surprise, when they got to the grave, they couldn't even see His body which they had sought:

Luke 24:1-3 (KJV)

Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.
And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.
And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.


So it seemed the only thing which yet inspired some hope in them concerning their Lord, had now been taken away from them, but then it was said:

Luke 24:4-7 (KJV)

And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:
And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?
He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,
Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.


Hence they came to the grave to anoint His dead body, but they received more than what they had gone there for, which was the news that the body of Jesus which they sought among the dead was no longer there because, "He is risen!"

And this saying of the angels they had immediately believed as they were said to have remembered His Words, hence they returned from the sepulcher to give the good news to His disciples. Luke 24:8-10

That was supposed to the best news that the disciples had received since His death, however to show the extent to which they had lost hope after His death, they would not believe the report of the women who had broken the news of Jesus' resurrection to them.

Luke 24:11 (KJV)

And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not.

But not long after that He that had resurrected from the dead, was said to have appeared before them Himself!

Luke 24:36 (KJV)

And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.

And although some still couldn't believe their eyes for joy, because it seemed so surreal that their Master and Lord who they thought had died and left them alone by themselves forever, had risen from the dead and now appeared right before their very eyes.

However after Jesus had proven to them that He was actually the One and also opened up their understanding of the scriptures concerning Him, it was said:

Luke 24:52-53 (KJV)

And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:
And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.


So knowing that their Lord who meant everything to them was no longer in the grave but had truly risen from the dead, brought their hopes back to life, as their joy knew no bounds and that inspired them to continue from where they'd left off prior to His death, up til the day of their own deaths.

It's the reason we have the message of His gospel available to us today over 2000 years later!

It's because Christ is no longer in the grave, but "HE IS RISEN!"

God bless.

I so much love this MAN of calvary,

This LAMB of GOD who took away the sin of the world.

HE is the only being who was not created.

HE was begotten, but not created.

After being begotten by God,God used Him to create everythhing.

HE is the only one who died and resurrected bodily.

D Lawrence tried it and failed.


Another woman called herself "The only begotten daughter of God"

She died and to the dismay of her followers, she could not resurrect on the day she said she would.

She is still in the grave today.

I can't tell the joy I feel knowing that a link to the Father has been established for me, all thanks to Christ.

Meditate on the reason of the death of Jesus Christ and choose to live a holy life.

A glorious Easter to us all.
Nice. Thanks for sharing.

You guys should keep deceiving yourselves. grin

No human being has the ability to die and resurrect.

Jesus Christ was a human being. He died over 2000 years ago. You guys should let the Jew rest in peace.

Damn!




Jesus resurrected from the dead! He is risen!

A lot of things do not add up.

There are many star systems but all are light years beyond our Solar System, and oxygen is very thin a few kilometers above our sky view and actually beyond which there is no more oxygen and no more air. How did a flying Jesus breath and what did he breath ?

Based on the substrate of different planets this human physical body is just designed for Earth incorporating our ventilation system and designed for the resident air and local gravity so except heaven shares similar gravitational capacitance and fluid Dynamics there is no way the body would survive there.

I submit that Jesus did not resurrect with a physical body.

The narrative is that he could appear and disappear after resurrection so I submit to you that he was in a dense astral form aka Ghost after 3 days. Hence the word, Holy Ghost.

Happy Easter Christianss
I pray that one day God delivers you of your ignorance of the Truth.

Flesh and and blood cannot reveal the things of the Kingdom of God but God, so do not expect to be able to comprehend this Truth unless that happens.
