What began on Friday look like total defeat changed totally bringing victory. And now everything is different!!!

We certainly do not doubt Jesus rose from the dead. He also descended into the deepest pit of human despair and took those enemies captive and brought them before the Father for the judgment fully setting free all of mankind.

Luke 24:1 Very early that Sunday morning, the women made their way to the tomb, carrying the spices they had prepared. Among them were Mary Magdalene, Joanna, and Jesus mother Mary.

2Arriving at the tomb they discovered that the huge stone covering the entrance had been rolled aside,

3so they went in to look. But the tomb was empty. The body of Jesus was gone!

4They stood there, stunned and perplexed. Suddenly, two men appeared above them in dazzling white robes shining like lightning.

5Terrified, the women fell to the ground on their faces. The men in white said to them, Why would you look for the Living One in a tomb? He is not here, for he has risen!

6Have you forgotten what he said to you while he was still in Galilee:

7The destiny of the Son of Man is to be handed over to sinful men, to be nailed to a cross, and on the third day to rise again?

8All at once they remembered his words. 

9 Leaving the tomb, they went to break the news to the Eleven and to all the others of what they had seen and heard.

11When the disciples heard the testimony of the women, it made no sense, and they were unable to believe what they heard.

12But Peter jumped up and ran the entire distance to the tomb to see for himself. Stooping down, he looked inside and discovered it was empty! There was only the linen sheet lying there. Staggered by this, he walked away, wondering what it meant. TPT

LUKE 24:13 Later that same day, two of Jesus disciples were walking from Jerusalem to Emmaus, a journey of about seventeen miles.  5 HOURS

14-15 They were in the midst of a discussion about all the events of the last few days when Jesus walked up and accompanied them in their journey.

16They were unaware that it was actually Jesus walking alongside them, for God prevented them from recognizing him.  TPT

Luke 24:25 Jesus said to them, Why are you so thick-headed? Why do you find it so hard to believe every word the prophets have spoken?

26Wasn't it necessary for the Messiah to experience all these sufferings and afterward to enter into his glory?

27And beginning with Moses and all the prophets he carefully unveiled to them the revelation of himself throughout the Scriptures.

28As they approached the village, Jesus walked on ahead, telling them he was going on to a distant place.

29They urged him to remain there with them and pleaded, Stay with us. It will be dark soon. So Jesus went with them into the village.

30Joining them at the table for supper, he took bread and blessed it and broke it, then gave it to them.

31All at once their eyes were opened and they realized he was Jesus! Then suddenly, in a flash, Jesus vanished from before their eyes!

32Stunned, they looked at each other and said, Why didn't we recognize him? Didn't our hearts burn with the flames of holy passion while we walked beside him? He unveiled for us such profound revelation from the Scriptures! 

33 They left at once and hurried back to Jerusalem to tell the other disciples. When they found the Eleven and the other disciples all together,  TPT

LUKE 24:36-37 While they were still discussing all of this, Jesus suddenly appeared right in front of their eyes! Startled and terrified, the disciples were convinced they were seeing a ghost. Standing there among them he said, Be at peace. I am the living God. Dont be afraid.

38 Why are you so frightened? Dont let doubt enter your hearts.

39 See my pierced hands and feet. See for yourselves, it is I, standing here alive. Touch me and know that my wounds are real. A spirit does not have a body of flesh and bone as you see that I have.

40 Then he showed them his pierced hands and feet and let them touch his wounds.

41 The disciples were ecstatic, yet dumbfounded, unable to fully comprehend it. Knowing that they were still wondering if he was real, Jesus said, Here, let me show you. Give me something to eat.

42-43 They handed him a piece of broiled fish and some honeycomb. And they watched him eat.  TPT

JOHN 20:19 That evening of the first day of the week, the disciples were gathered in a room with the doors locked because they were afraid of the Jews. Suddenly Jesus stepped into their midst and said, Shalom

20 Then he showed them his scarred hands and side and having now seen the Lord for themselves, they were exceedingly glad!

21 Again he repeated his salutation and said, Peace be unto you! Just as the Father has commissioned me so do I now send you!

22 Having said this he breathed an effusion of Spirit upon them and said, Take Holy Spirit as your Companion.

23 If you forgive someones sins, they are gone and forgotten. If you dont let go, then you are stuck with them. MIRROR

John 20:22-23 And then he breathed upon them and said, "Receive holy spirit. If you forgive any men's sins, they are forgiven, and if you hold them unforgiven, they are unforgiven."  PHILLIPS

JOHN 6:39  My Senders desire is for me to rescue every single individual - this is his gift to me - that I will lose no detail of their original identity mirrored in me! My rescuing mission will conclude in their joint-resurrection! This is the completeness of time!  MIRROR

EPH 4: 8 Scripture confirms that he arrested every possible threat that held mankind hostage! ["he took captivity captive"] And in his resurrection, he led us as trophies in his triumphant procession on high. Consider the genius of God, in the incarnate Christ, he repossessed what belonged to us by design, in human form; this is his grace-gift to us!

9 The fact that he ascended confirms his victorious descent into the deepest pits of human despair.  No one has ascended into heaven but he who descended from heaven, even the son of man. 

10 He now occupies the ultimate rank of authority, from the lowest regions of our darkness into which he reached in order to rescue us, to the highest authority in the heavens, having executed his mission to the full. MIRROR

EPH 4:24 Remain fully immersed in this God-shaped new person from above! You are created in the image and likeness of God. This is what righteousness and true holiness are all about. MIRROR

Acts 2:24 God destroyed the cords of death and raised him up, because it was impossible for death's power to hold him prisoner.

25This is the very thing David prophesied about him: I continually see the Lord in front of me. He's at my right hand, and I am never shaken.

26No wonder my heart is glad and my glory celebrates! My mouth is filled with his praises, and I have hope that my body will live

27because you will not leave my soul among the dead, nor will you allow your sacred one to experience decay.

28For you have revealed to me the pathways to life, and seeing your face fills me with euphoria!

29My fellow Jews, I can tell you there is no doubt that our noted patriarch has both died and been buried in his tomb, which remains to this day. So you can see that he was not referring to himself with those words.

30But as a prophet, he knew God's faithful promise, made with God's unbreakable oath, that one of his descendants would take his throne.

31So when peering into the future, David prophesied of the Messiah's resurrection. And God revealed to him that the Messiah would not be abandoned to the realm of death, nor would his body experience decay.

32Can't you see it? God has resurrected Jesus, and we all have seen him!  TPT

ROM 6:5  We were like seeds planted together in the same soil, to be co-quickened to life. If we were included in his death we are equally included in his resurrection.

6 We perceive that our old lifestyle was co-crucified together with him; this concludes that the vehicle that accommodated sin in us, was scrapped and rendered entirely useless. Our slavery to sin has come to an end.

7 If nothing else stops you from doing something wrong, death certainly does.

8 Faith sees us joined in his death and alive with him in his resurrection.

9 It is plain for all to see that death lost its dominion over Christ in his resurrection; he need not ever die again to prove a further point.  MIRROR

1 Cor 15:12  Now, let me ask you something profound yet troubling. If you became believers because you trusted the proclamation that Christ is alive, risen from the dead, how can you let people say that there is no such thing as a resurrection?

13 If there's no resurrection, there's no living Christ.

14 And face it if there's no resurrection for Christ, everything we've told you is smoke and mirrors, and everything you've staked your life on is smoke and mirrors.

15 Not only that, but we would be guilty of telling a string of barefaced lies about God, all these affidavits we passed on to you verifying that God raised up Christ sheer fabrications, if there's no resurrection.

16 If corpses can't be raised, then Christ wasn't, because he was indeed dead.

17 And if Christ wasn't raised, then all you're doing is wandering about in the dark, as lost as ever.

18 It's even worse for those who died hoping in Christ and resurrection, because they're already in their graves.

19 If all we get out of Christ is a little inspiration for a few short years, we're a pretty sorry lot.

20 But the truth is that Christ has been raised up, the first in a long legacy of those who are going to leave the cemeteries.

21 There is a nice symmetry in this: Death initially came by a man, and resurrection from death came by a man.

22 Everybody dies in Adam; everybody comes alive in Christ. MSG

2 COR 4:10 Wherever we go, whatever we encounter in our bodies, we bear witness within us of the fact that Jesus died our death; in this same body, we now exhibit his life. The fact that we co-died in his death confirms that we now co-live in his resurrection!  MIRROR

Philippians 3:10 And I continually long to know the wonders of Jesus and to experience the overflowing power of his resurrection working in me. I will be one with him in his sufferings and become like him in his death.

11Only then will I be able to experience complete oneness with him in his resurrection from the realm of death.  TPT


PHIL 3:10 Oh to comprehend the dynamic of his resurrection! His resurrection is evidence of our righteousness! In the revelation of Gods economy of inclusion, I actually co-suffered with him and co-died together with Christ!  

11 When confronted with death, I actually come face to face with my own resurrection!   MIRROR

Col 3:1 IF THEN you have been raised with Christ [to a new life, thus sharing His resurrection from the dead], aim at and seek the [rich, eternal treasures] that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 

2 And set your minds and keep them set on what is above (the higher things), not on the things that are on the earth.

3 For [as far as this world is concerned] you have died, and your [new, real] life is hidden with Christ in God.  AMP


COL 3:1  See yourselves co-raised with Christ! Now ponder with persuasion the consequence of your co-inclusion in him. Relocate yourselves mentally! Engage your thoughts with throne room realities where you are co-seated with Christ in the executive authority of Gods right hand.

2 Becoming affectionately acquainted with throne room thoughts will keep you from being distracted again by the earthly [soul-ruled] realm.

3 Your union with his death broke the association with that world; see yourselves located in a fortress where your life is hidden with Christ in God!   MIRROR

Rom 8:11 And if the Spirit of Him Who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, [then] He Who raised up Christ Jesus from the dead will also restore to life your mortal (short-lived, perishable) bodies through His Spirit Who dwells in you.

12 So then, brethren, we are debtors, but not to the flesh [we are not obligated to our carnal nature], to live [a life ruled by the standards set up by the dictates] of the flesh.



RO 8:11 Our union with Christ further reveals that because the same Spirit that awakened the body of Jesus from the dead inhabits us, we equally participate in his resurrection. In the same act of authority whereby God raised Jesus from the dead, he co-restores your body to life by his indwelling Spirit.  

12 We owe flesh nothing.   MIRROR

Eph 2:5 Even when we were dead (slain) by [our own] shortcomings and trespasses, He made us alive together in fellowship and in union with Christ; [He gave us the very life of Christ Himself, the same new life with which He quickened Him, for] it is by grace (His favor and mercy which you did not deserve) that you are saved (delivered from judgment and made partakers of Christ's salvation).

6 And He raised us up together with Him and made us sit down together [giving us joint seating with Him] in the heavenly sphere [by virtue of our being] in Christ Jesus (the Messiah, the Anointed One).  AMP


EPH 2:5 This is how grace rescued us: while we were yet in that state of deadness and indifference in our deviations, we were co-quickened together with Christ! We had nothing to do with it. Grace freed us, once and for all from the lies that we believed about ourselves under the performance-driven system, and now defines our authentic identity!

6 We are co-included in his resurrection. We are also co-elevated in his ascension to be equally present in the throne room of the heavenly realm where we are co-seated with him in his executive authority. We are fully represented in Christ Jesus.  MIRROR

Col 2:12  [Thus you were circumcised when] you were buried with Him in [your] baptism, in which you were also raised with Him [to a new life] through [your] faith in the working of God [as displayed] when He raised Him up from the dead.  AMP ↕↕↕

COL 2:12 In the same parallel [your co-circumcision in his death], your co-burial and joint-resurrection is now demonstrated in baptism; your co-inclusion in Christ is what Gods faith knew when he powerfully raised him from the dead.  MIRROR

1 THESS 4:16 In their awakening, the dead will all, first-hand witness the Lord stepping out of the invisible heavenly realm into their immediate visible horizon with an inciting shout, announcing his triumphant reign in the trumpet-like billowing voice of God.

17 In the wake of their arising, we will all be gathered into a large dense multitude of an innumerable throng of people, united as one, like the particles of water in a cloud, and we will encounter the Lord in the very air we breathe and so shall we continually celebrate our I-am-ness in our union with him.  MIRROR
