The greatest testimony of the Bible is that Jesus Christ died and rose again from the dead. Our very hope in the Gospel is the resurrection of the just. The resurrection of Jesus and the resurrection of the righteous is the cornerstone of our faith. (Rom. 10:6 ñ 9) If there is no resurrection of the dead our faith is in vain. (1 Cor. 15:12 ñ 14) Our faith however, is as that of Job. ìIf a man die, shall he live again? All the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come.î (Job 14:14) The resurrection of the dead is the message that Satan would most like to silence. It is the power of the resurrection message that he fears most. (John 5:25-29) The righteous have hope in the resurrection, but wicked fear and trembling. Neither Satan nor the wicked fears the teaching of an immortal soul. The doctrine of an immortal soul leaves room for belief in all kinds of mystic phenomenon and concepts. (Dt. 18:10 & 11; 1Sam. 27:8) But to the contrary if the belief in the resurrection catches hold and resonates then too will the preaching of the cross. If there is a resurrection of the dead you can rest assure that Christ has risen. If Christ rose from the dead than every word of the Gospel is found to be true. The truth of the resurrection of the dead brings the wicked under condemnation (Acts 24:15). So it is then the power of the resurrection that gives meaning to life and hope to the righteous. (Rev. 20:6) With unwavering faith we believe in the resurrection of the dead and teach others to believe.
