The Unspoken Resurrection

heaven-misplaced

….So this means that the resurrection was not an odd event in the first century with all “normal” things staying just the same.  The resurrection was the central event of all history, but we have to take this as the central event for all history.  It defines history; it establishes the trajectory of the remaining story.

….Now this means that if the firstfruits happened two thousand years ago and the general  is sometime in the future, this historical interim is not a time in which “nothing is happening.”  Rather, to return to Paul’s point, it is the time in which we, through the authority of the resurrection gospel, are to be laboring to put down all rule and authority and power, bringing every thought captive.

…When He did this, He was received by the Ancient of Days, and was given universal authority over all the nations of men.  Earth now has a new capital city-heaven-and we are called to learn how to live in terms of this.  And as we learn, we are to teach.

One thought on “The Unspoken Resurrection”

  1. To advance His Kingdom on earth now is to bring out the true gospel and let it be heard. The cross is part of the gospel but the resurrection the fullness of the gospel.
    In Matthew 4:2 “And as they were speaking to the people, the priests and the captain of the temple and the Sadducees came upon them, greatly annoyed because they were teaching the people and proclaiming in Jesus the resurrection from the dead.”
    The resurrection proclaimed his Kingship over all the kingdoms and authority. He is reigning and ruling now in the heavenly places.
