Maximizing Christ’s Resurrection


March 31, 2024

Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark,  

Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance."  - John 20:1(NIV) 


Embracing Christ’s Resurrection positions us uniquely, setting us apart with exceptional distinction. It transcends a mere historical event; instead, it marks a pivotal moment transforming our spiritual narrative. This transformation enables us to step into the role of heirs with God, as articulated in Romans 8:17(NKJV): “And if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.” Christ's triumph over death not only signifies our renewed hope and faith (1 Peter 1:3) but solidifies our status as heirs, signifying a profound shift in our spiritual identity. 

  

The resurrection of Christ holds diverse implications and profound insights, at its core revealing that Jesus' sacrifice on the cross was accepted by God. Without this acceptance, Jesus would not have resurrected. However, He did, and through that acceptance, God exalted Him, granting Him a place at His right hand (Philippians 2:9). Consequently, every declaration Jesus made about Himself, and every scripture written stands irrefutable through Christ’s resurrection. We now have peace with God and have become friends with God through Jesus Christ. His resurrection transforms those words from mere promises into guarantees, which we can hold onto with faith as participants in the new covenant. 

  

To fully access the blessings and power made available by Jesus, certain steps or actions are crucial. It begins with being rooted in a spiritual community of true believers, planted in a Bible-believing Church where you receive nourishment from the Word of God and fellowship with other believers. It's not just about showing up every week but about active involvement and service with your gifts, time, and resources. Constant engagement in this manner will help you become attuned and alert to the prophetic, enabling you to receive prophecies and declarations meant to guide, warn, and bless you. 

  

Another way to grow spiritually is by engaging and participating in various spiritual disciplines such as prayer and Bible study, fasting, as well as worshiping through songs and psalms. These disciplines are not meant to exhaust you but are channels that build you up spiritually, leading to growth and distinction, making you more alert and receptive to God’s voice. The disciplines in New Covenant Assembly are designed to deepen your faith in the preached word of God, serving as catalysts propelling you toward your God-ordained destiny and opening doors that may otherwise remain shut. Through prayers and deliverance, we can possess and take hold of blessings that might otherwise remain elusive. James 5:16b says the effective and fervent prayer of a righteous man is both powerful and effective. 

Jesus didn't rise from the dead for us to live defeated lives; He rose so that we could experience all-around victory. 

With Christ’s resurrection also came a monumental shift in power in the spiritual realm. (Ephesians 1:20-21). This wasn't a regular handover ceremony but a seismic change, rendering the devil powerless and defeated. The devil's dominion was broken, bringing us into a new era where the fear of sin, which once gripped us, has been rendered powerless, ushering in renewed hope and blessings. Now, because of Jesus Christ's resurrection, all the benefits of the new covenant are accessible to us. Every prayer and act of faith brings us closer to these blessings, positioning us for divine exploits and urging us to claim our new inheritance in Christ.


Imagine being granted access to a massive shopping mall filled with everything you've ever wanted, where the doors are open, and you've been given a golden ticket or blank check to take anything you like, with absolutely no spending limits. This isn't just a metaphor; it's our spiritual reality as children of God! Jesus didn't rise from the dead for us to live defeated lives; He rose so that we could experience all-around victory. The resurrection isn't a one-and-done event; it provides a lifetime guarantee of victory over life's challenges as seen in 1 Corinthians 15:57(NKJV) - "But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ”. 

  

As believers, we must recognize that the same spirit that raised Jesus from the dead dwells in us (Romans 8:11). Therefore, we must live in alignment with God’s will through studying the word, praying, and following His commands. Christ’s resurrection changed the game for us and can transform every area of our lives, changing how we perceive our problems, worries, plans, or failures. If Jesus conquered death, what is left for us to be afraid of? As you go through your day, remember this truth, and harness its power in your favor. Live like you serve a risen Savior – because you do, and with Heaven backing you up, you are positioned to achieve great exploits.


Engage with the Throne Room of Heaven and download its riches that are now available to you. I see you doing exploits in Jesus' Name. Amen!

Prayer - Lord, I thank You for the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Your sacrifice on the cross was not in vain. Thank you for dying for me on the cross of Calvary. I thank you for the implications of your resurrection. Through Christ’s victory over death, I receive the dimensions of God that will enable me do exploits in The Name of Jesus. The word of God works for me. So, it is, and it shall be in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen!
