The Rising God

18 Nov

The Rising God…

In the ancient world there were strange foreshadows and substitutes of the resurrection in the myths of the dying and rising gods; Osiris, Tammuz, Adonis and Dionysius.

All throughout the ancient world there were these yearly rights and rituals commemorating the death and resurrection of these mythological gods. It was all a myth.

There was nothing historic about it. They didn’t really believe that anything happened once and for all and it would change their lives.

As believers, we have a real resurrection, but so many of us live as if it was a myth. It doesn’t really affect our lives. We hear that He rose but we go back to our life and there’s very little evidence that anything is changed.

We have a real God, a real resurrection. Messiah rose for real in history so we have to live it for real and stop living as though it was a nice myth.

Live the power of the resurrection every day. You really have to overcome. Every other good news is a myth but Jesus and his resurrection. You’ve got the real thing. He rose; you can do the same.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,

Make it your aim today to live and walk and act in the power of the resurrection of Yeshua, Jesus, and you will overcome.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
