Textul: Ioan 20:1-18

  • Un Mantuitor mort nu poate sa dea asigurare eterna.
  • Dar Hristos a inviat!
  • Care sunt binecuvantarile care le primim noi de la un mormant gol?

(1) La mormantul gol primesti un scop al vietii tale

Domnul Isus o trimite pe Maria: Du-te la fratii Mei si spune-le ca Eu traiesc si ma sui la cer. Apoi Isus se arata ucenicilor si le da si lor scop. Dintr-o data si femeile si ucenicii au scop: sa proclame lumii invierea lui Isus Hristos. Cind te intalnesti cu Dumnezeu iti da de lucru. Si viata ta capata scop. Bagati de seama ca oamenii acestia au facut aceasta (propovaduirea evangheliei) desi ei nu au avut masini, avioane sau internet. Dupa ce ei capata scop, ei se duc si implinesc acest scop, chiar daca nu au avut mijloacele noastre. Chiar daca nu au avut libertatea noastra. Sa nu uitam ca dupa cateva zile dupa ce au primit scopul acesta aveau sa moara unul cate unul. Dintre toti ucenicii, doar Ioan se spune ca a murit de boala natural, de batranete. Toti ceilalti pentru scopul acesta si-au dat viata. Au stropit cu sange marturia vietii lor. V-ati gandit ca Dumnezeu cand la ales pe Pavel, l-a ales si pentru ca avea dublu cetatenie si trecere libera?

Cind s-au luat pasapoartele si granitele s-au deschis, v-ati pus intrebarea asta ca Dumnezeu nu vrea numai sa ne imbogatim, ci sa putem circula liber ca sa vestim evanghelia? Femeile au fost ultimile la cruce si primile la mormantul gol. Dragostea intotdeauna se scoala mai devreme. Daca stati si priviti in lumea noastra astazi, oamenii traiesc fara scop, sau daca au un scop, scopul acesta este ca sa munceasca ca sa aiba ce sa manance, ca sa poata manca ca sa se duca la lucru a doua zi. Milioane de oameni fara scop. S-ar putea sa ai scopuri personale si intr-o zi sa le atingi. Nici nu exista blestem mai mare decat sa iti atingi toate scopurile personale. Cred ca e un blestem si sa nu le atingi dar si sa le atingi pe toate. Dar Dumnezeu ne-a creat cu un alt scop. Acel de a-L gasi pe Dumnezeu si a primi sens al vietii noastre. Fara Dumnezeu nu veti fi niciodata impliniti. Nu exista mai frumos scop al vietii decat sa mergi in cer si sa iei cu tine cat mai multi poti tu. Vestiti moartea si invierea lui Hristos!

(2) La mormantul gol primesti si o victorie asupra

  • (a)Diavolului si a demonilor, 
  • (b)asupra problemelor si greutatilor, 
  • (c)asupra pacatului si 
  • (d)asupra mortii. 

Cand s-au dus la mormant, aveau mentalitatea oamenilor invinsi, infranti. De atatea ori ni se pare ca ne-a ingenunchiat Satana ca nu mai vedem nici scop al vietii noastre si nici vreo biruinta.Cand boala si-a facut cuib in trupul nostru, cand nimic parca nu functioneaza. Infranti in pocainta noastra cand ne-am dat seama ca ne-am comportat ca niste pagani. Infranti in gandurile noastre, in visurile noastre, in trairile noastra, in relatiile noastre cu oamenii. Infranti si Biblia zice: Duceti-va la mormantul gol ca acolo capatati victorie. Victorie asupra problemelor si greutatilor. Mormantul gol inseamna un Hristos viu si Hristos viu da asigurari eterne. Sa nu cumva sa va asteptati ca in lumea aceasta sa fie mai bine. Prin El vom avea victorie. In Evrei 4:16 spune sa ne apropiem cu deplina incredere de scaunul harului ca sa capatam indurare si sa gasim har, pentru ca sa fim ajutati, …cind? In vreme de nevoie. Exceptional cuvant acesta- in vreme de nevoie. Ca pina nu ai probleme din acestea te rogi pentru problemele altora. Dar vine o zi cand ai nevoie tu si atunci sa ne apropiem cu deplina incredere de scaunul harului ca sa dobandim har si indurare in vreme de nevoi.

Avem victorie nu numai asupra problemelor dar si asupra lui Satana si asupra demonilor. Cand vine Satana si iti bate la usa inimii, trimite-L pe Hristos. Nu te du tu ca esti prada usoara. Sigur ca singuri nu valoram nimic in fata diavolului si ne face praf. Dar impreuna cu Isus Hristos suntem intotdeauna biruitori. Nu va fie frica de diavolul ci  sa va fie frica de nepocainta voastra pentru ca abia in momentul in care nu o sa mai fiti lipiti de Hristos veti avea probleme mari cu Satana. Avem victorie  asupra pacatului si asupra ispitei, nu numai asupra demonilor si asupra diavolului si nu numai asupra problemelor vietii noastre. V-ati pus intrebarea de ce Isus s-a aratat prima data lui Maria Magdalena? Cea mai pacatoasa fiinta cu care s-a intalnit Domnul. Spune cuvantul lui Dumnezeu ca i s-a aratat ei prima data, i-a spus pe nume  si ca i-a dat nu numai un scop al vietii dar i-a dat si victorie asupra ce? Ea avea indoieli… a zis ca ma iarta (Isus) si a scos demonii aceia. Daca e mort (Isus) nu vin inapoi demonii aceia? Spune Biblia ca pot sa vina inapoi cu o singura conditie-Isus sa fie mort. Dar El nu e mort, e viu! Isus Hristos I se arat si ii zice: Marie, de aici incolo traiesti in victoria Mea. De aici incolo Eu iti dau victoria. Niciodata nu vom avea izbanda cita vreme mu Il implicam pe Isus Hristos in problema pacatului nostru. Zici: de mine nu se va atinge. Nu e adevarat! Diavolul este siret si stie ca daca nu ne bazam pe sangele lui Isus Hristos avem probleme. A-ti auzit de pacate mici, pacate mari, Biblia nu zice asta. Biblia zice ca Isus Hristos ne-a iertat noua toate pacatele. Avem victorie si asupra mortii. In 1 Corinteni 15:26 spune ca ultimul vrasmas al nostru care va fi nimicit, ultimul… E un lucru fantastic. Stiti de ce? Ca zice ca moartea este un inger al Diavolului, un sol al Satanei. Moartea va fi ultimul vrasmas al omului, care va fi nimicit. La mormantul lui Lazar a zis Domnul Isus: Eu sunt invierea si viata. Cine crede in Mine, chiar daca ar fi murit, va trai si cine crede in Mine nici nu mai moare.

Dar atunci ce se intampla cu sfintii? Sa nu considerati moartea numai ca o despartire a trupului de suflet. Biblia spune ca moartea e si o despartire a sufletului de Dumnezeu. Cata vreme sufletul tau nu e despartit de Dumnezeu, trupul acesta (chiar daca) poate fi nimicit, Dumnezeu il va reface iarasi. Voi sa nu priviti cu o mare calamitate moartea trupului ci sa priviti ca un dezastru final moartea sufletului. Nu uitati ca Adam a pacatuit pe la 30 de ani si a mai trait 900 de ani, dar a trait mort. Era mort fata de Dumnezeu. Biblia vorbeste despre oamenii acestia ca li se duce vestea ca traiesc, sa nu uitati cata vreme ai pacat in tine esti mort. Exista o teama a mortii si spune Isus Hristos: Va dau biruinta peste teama aceasta care este peste fiecare din voi fata de moarte. Am invins, dar ce am facut noi pentru asta? Nimic. Absolut nimic. Suntem astazi in biruinta Lui! Zice Domnul ca ne face partasi biruintei Lui.

 (3) La mormantul gol primesti mangaiere

 Maria plangea. Isus o intreaba: De ce plangi? Pai la cimitir…se plange. Ea plangea pentru ca: „Nu stiu unde L-au pus”. Isus i-a spus doar atat: Cand suferi pierderi vei primi mangaiere. Vei pierde sot,sotie,copii si noi vom veni cu tine la priveghi si apoi la inmormantare si dupa aceia vom pleca acasa si ramai singura sau singur, numai cu Hristos.

Cand ratacim calea Isus Hristos ne aduce mangaiere. Petru s-a lepadat de Isus dar dupa aceea a plans cu amar si Domnul l-a mangaiat pe Petru cand a spus: Spuneti ucenicilor mei si lui Petru ca vreau sa ma intalnesc cu el si cu ei.

Citind in Apocalipsa 1, Ioan era exilat in Patmos singur, fara frati. Va dati seama ce durere pentru el cu trupul bolnav si sufletul bolnav? Domnul Isus Hristos i se arata intr-o vedenie in Patmos, vroind sa-i spuna: Ioane tu nu esti singur aici exilat. Eu sunt cu tine aici in insula aceasta si zice: Nu te teme, Eu sunt cel dintai si cel de pe urma. Am fost mort si iata ca sunt viu in veci vecilor. Cand avem necazuri avem mangaierea lui Dumnezeu asigurata.2 Corinteni 1:3-4 3Binecuvîntat să fie Dumnezeu, Tatăl Domnului nostru Isus Hristos, Părintele îndurărilor şi Dumnezeul oricărei mîngîieri, 4care ne mîngîie în toate necazurile noastre, pentruca, prin mîngîierea cu care noi înşine sîntem mîngîiaţi de Dumnezeu, să putem mîngîia pe ceice se află în vreun necaz!

The Overflow of Easter: A Whole Theology of Resurrection in One Chapter by John Piper

He is risen! And O the overflow of that single event. It was the cosmic Yes! from God the Father that the death had done all it was meant to do. And it was the beginning of the eternal existence of the God-Man in a glorious new body in which he would finally reign on the earth forever. And so much more.

There is a whole theology of the resurrection and its achievements in 1 Corinthians 15. Here’s a summary. Let each of these sink in. Savor each one. Then start your new week (the rest of your life) abounding in the work God calls you to “knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.”

1. Christ died for us and rose again.

Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and . . . He was buried, and . . . He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures. (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)

2. He verified his resurrection by large public appearances.

After that He appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time, most of whom remain until now, but some have fallen asleep. (1 Corinthians 15:6)

3. Because Christ has risen, we are not still in our sins.

If Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins. (1 Corinthians 15:17)

4. Because Christ has risen, our afflicted lives are not pitiable.

If we have hoped in Christ in this life only, we are of all men most to be pitied. (1 Corinthians 15:19)

5. We who trust Christ will be raised from the dead at Christ’s second coming.

For as in Adam all [his posterity] die, so also in Christ all will [his posterity] be made alive. But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ’s at His coming. (1 Corinthians 15:22-23)

6. Christ now reigns invincibly over the universe.

For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. The last enemy that will be abolished is death. (1 Corinthians 15:25-26)

7. Our resurrection body will be imperishable, glorious, powerful, and spiritual.

[Our resurrection body] is sown a perishable body, it is raised an imperishable body; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. (1 Corinthians 15:42-44)

8. Living or dead, we shall be given new bodies in an instant at Christ’s coming.

Behold, I tell you a mystery; we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. (1 Corinthians 15:51-52)

9. Death now has no sting and will be swallowed up in victory.

But when this perishable will have put on the imperishable, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then will come about the saying that is written, „Death is swallowed up in victory. Death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” (1 Corinthians 15:54-55)

10. Christ suffered for sin and satisfied the law for us.

The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law; but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 15:56-57)

11. Therefore, do huge amounts of Christ-exalting work because none of it is in vain.

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord. (1 Corinthians 15:58)

Christ has risen! The significance of the Resurrection


Matthew 28:1-10 Jesus Has Risen

 1After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. 2 There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. 3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. 4 The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.

5 The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6 He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. 7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”

8 So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. 9 Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. 10 Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”

1. According to the four gospels, Jesus rose from the dead following
   His crucifixion...
   a. Matthew records how the women found the tomb empty and were
      instructed by an angel to tell the disciples - Mt 28:1-8
   b. Also how Jesus appeared to them while on their way - Mt 28:9-10
   -- In all, the New Testament records ten distinct resurrection
      appearances of Christ prior to His ascension to heaven

2. The significance of the resurrection of Jesus to the Christian faith
   cannot be overestimated...
   a. It has great significance for one who has yet to believe in Jesus
   b. It also has great significance for those who are Christians

[In this study we shall consider "The Significance Of The Resurrection"
for both unbelievers and believers...]

I. FOR THE UNBELIEVER

   A. IT VERIFIES THE DEITY OF JESUS...
      1. The resurrection proves that Jesus truly is the Son of God
         - Ro 1:4
      2. It also demonstrates that He truly has all authority in heaven
         and on earth - Mt 28:18; Ac 2:36

   B. IT VERIFIES THE TRUTHFULNESS OF JESUS...
      1. Jesus foretold His resurrection on three occasions - Mt 16:21; 17:22-23; 20:17-19
         a. If Jesus was telling the truth in describing His suffering
            and resurrection...
         b. ...then He was telling the truth in everything else He said
         -- Would God raise a liar?
      2. Therefore the following teachings of Jesus are true:
         a. He was from the Father above, and spoke the words of the
            Father - Jn 8:28-29
         b. No one can come to the Father but through Him - Jn 14:6
         c. His blood was shed for the remission of sins - Mt 26:28
         d. He came to offer abundant life - Jn 10:10
         e. He went to prepare a place for us - Jn 14:2
         f. He shall come again - Jn 14:3
         g. There will be a resurrection of the dead and ensuing
            judgment - Jn 5:28-29; 12:48; Ac 17:30-31

[If Jesus was in fact raised from the dead, "The Significance Of The Resurrection" for the unbeliever is enormous!  It compels unbelievers
to come face to face with reality, and the need to accept the Lordship
of Jesus.  The resurrection of Jesus has even more significance...]

II. FOR THE BELIEVER    

   A. IF JESUS HAS NOT BEEN RAISED...
      1. Gospel preaching is vain - 1Co 15:14
         a. The preaching of the apostles is empty, meaningless
         b. There would be no purpose in preaching about a liar, or
            lunatic
      2. Our faith is vain - 1Co 15:14
         a. Our belief in Christ would also be empty, meaningless
         b. For our faith would be in a liar, or lunatic
      3. The apostles were false witnesses - 1Co 15:15
         a. They swore that God raised Jesus from the dead - Ac 2:32
         b. They claimed to spend 40 days with Him after the
            resurrection, eating and drinking with Him - Ac 10:39-41
         c. There is no way they could have been deceived or mistaken;
            either they told the truth or they were deliberate liars,
            deceivers, and frauds!
      4. We are still in our sins - 1Co 15:17
         a. It would have been a liar or lunatic that died on the cross
         b. No such person could have provided a sacrifice that was
            holy and without blemish
      5. Believers have perished at death - 1Co 15:18
         a. Their faith would have been in a false Messiah
         b. They would have had no atonement for their sins
         c. Dying in their sins, there would be no hope
      6. Christians are to be pitied - 1Co 15:19
         a. Because we believe in a false Messiah
         b. Because our faith in Him leads us to refrain from much
            worldly pleasure
         c. Because we are often ridiculed or persecuted for our faith

    B. IF JESUS HAS BEEN RAISED...
      1. It verifies our justification - Ro 4:24-25
         a. Jesus claimed His blood would be adequate - Mt 26:28
         b. By raising Jesus from the dead, God demonstrated His
            acceptance of Jesus as a sacrifice for our sins! - Ro 8: 33-34
      2. It demonstrates the power available to the Christian - Ep 1: 18-20
         a. Power available at our conversion - Col 2:11-12; 1Pe 3:21
         b. Power available to live the Christian life - Ro 8:11-13; Php 2:12-13; 4:13; Ep 3:20; 6:10
      3. It gives us hope concerning our own resurrection - 1Pe 1:3
         a. His resurrection gives us a living hope! - 1Pe 1:21
         b. Especially concerning the resurrection of believers! - 1 Th 4:13-14
      4. It demands our complete loyalty to Him - Ro 14:9
         a. He was raised and then exalted to become our Lord - Ac 2: 32-36; Ep 1:20-23
         b. Thus our lives and service belong to Him - Ro 14:7-8; 2 Co 5:15
CONCLUSION

1. The impact of the resurrection of Jesus should not go unfelt in our
   lives...
   a. As a historical event it has everlasting implications
   b. For both the unbeliever and believer

2. The unbeliever needs to examine the evidence for the resurrection
   carefully...
   a. The nature of the testimony provided by the witnesses
   b. The unfeasibility of alternative explanations for the empty tomb
   -- For if Jesus rose from the dead, one must believe in Him! - Jn 8: 243. The believer must never lose sight of the significance of the
   resurrection...
   a. Do our lives demonstrate that we serve a risen Lord and Savior?
   b. Do we possess the hope, peace, and strength that the reality and
      power of His resurrection gives to the Christian?May we never forget "The Significance Of The Resurrection" of Jesus
Christ in our lives!
