RISEN IN CHRIST – By Harold Steinbron

By  Harold Steinbron 

Scripture Reading: [Thessalonians 4:16

Resurrection is only for the body. The only ones who  will take part in the raising of these select dead are those  who have already been placed in Christ by the baptism of  the Spirit of God. To be IN CHRIST is to immediately  partake of the Life of God: that is eternal life. The body may  become dust before God's program is ready for the spirit  and soul to be re-united.

At this resurrection, the spirit of those who experienced  what Paul spoke of-"absent from the body, present with the  Lord" - (No soul sleep there!) will return to earth to see that  pile of dust be raised so they can now be once again in the  body now made new and be present with the Lord, in their  new body.

Resurrection for the members of the Body of Christ has  already happened-IN CHRIST! Because He lives, we too  shall live! Those who are born once will die twice. Those  who are born twice will die once. Eternal life is experienced  in the Spirit, at the moment of salvation. Eternal life will be  experienced by the mortal body either at this special  resurrection, or at the moment of translation. We shall not  all sleep, and perhaps this generation will be the one to see  this glorious thing happen. Not death, but translation!

IN CHRIST, we have died, we have been buried, and we  have been raised from the dead. Our whole life is now on  the resurrection side of the grave. Eternal life is not only  quantitative, it is qualitative. Resurrection is just one more  benefit of being IN CHRIST.

How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
