“But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you,” Romans 8:11.
The glorious reality of a believer is that after death, he will rise again. The believer’s resurrection is twofold; resurrection from sin to new life and resurrection from death.
The fact is that the Bible describes an unbeliever as being dead in trespasses and sins. “And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins” (Eph. 2:1). When a person accepts the free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ his sins are forgiven and the Holy Spirit moves in and gives life to the lifeless. “And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses” (Col. 2:13). After salvation a person is quickened by the Holy Spirit and comes to life as a new creature in Christ.
On the third day, God raised Jesus from the dead as predicted by the prophets and preached by Jesus. And one day, that beautiful day, when the trumpet shall sound then all the dead in Christ rise from their graves, no matter where they are and come forth. The grave could not hold Jesus and it shall not hold the children of God.
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them (Eph. 2:10).
