    Default What benefits do believers receive from Christ at the resurrection?

    At the resurrection, believers being raised up in glory, shall be openly acknowledged and acquitted in the day of judgment, and made perfectly blessed in the full enjoying of God, to all eternity.


    1 Corinthians 15:42-43. So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power.

    Matthew 25:33-34. And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.

    Matthew 10:32. Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.


    1 Corinthians 2:9. But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.




    Soli Deo Gloria

    1 Corinthians 2:9. But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
    Romans 14:10 . . . .for we shall all stand before the judgment seat (bema) of Christ. . .every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. . .So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
    2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

    The bema is a raised platform - it was used by a tribunal from which orators addressed the citizens as well as the courts of law. It was also used for the Roman olympice where a judge would sit to determine what position the runners came in - first, second, and so on - and then to give them the appropriate reward.

    For those that have run in the race there is promised an incorruptible crown -
    1 Co. 9:25
    There is a crown of rejoicing for those in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming - 1 Thess. 2:19
    There is laid up a crown of righteousness shall give unto all that love his appearing - 2 Timothy 4:8
    There is a crown of life which the Lord hath promised to them that love him, to the faithful and those that endure temptation James 1:12 Rev. 2:10
    There is a crown of glory when Jesus appears - 1 Peter 5:4
    Stay as excited about God's Word as when you first believed.
    Wherever the Word is taught, if people believe it, they get results.
    Every situation is our opportunity to believe God.
    We learn to walk spiritually the same way we learn to walk physically-by walking.

    As believers we understand the Lord takes care of us.
