Resurrection is a hard thing to believe……………..but don’t make a “hard” thing an “impossible” thing to believe. Spring in itself is a testimony of God’s power of resurrection. In actuality, the resurrection doctrine is put to the test in our daily lives. The sun sets and then resurrects itself daily by God’s permission. The moon and the stars too! After the death of winter, the spring resurrects that which was dead. It comes to life again. Flowers budding, roses blooming, new grass comes to life, birds singing and whistling. Death is swallowed up in the victory. It is the cycle of life. We are to God as the flowers of the field made from the dust of the earth and man goes back to the dust from whence he came and rises again by God’s permission. Man is not some sophisticated hard to explain the creation of God. His origin, like the plant, is from the dirt of the earth.
There is the “Germ Theory”, that in every human body there is a “living germ” that is “indestructible and though the body turns to dust that “living germ: will exist in the grave until at the resurrection a new body shall spring from it. This theory explains how the body may be eaten by animals, destroyed by quick lime, blown to atoms or mutilated by the loss of limbs and still the “life germ” exists from which shall come the resurrection body.If I were to plant corn seeds, onion or carrot seeds; the seeds would go down into the earth in one manner and a plant would spring forth in another manner. The plant that springs from the seed will be like the plant that bore it, but with different qualities. So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in
If I were to plant corn seeds, onion or carrot seeds; the seeds would go down into the earth in one manner and a plant would spring forth in another manner. The plant that springs from the seed will be like the plant that bore it, but with different qualities. So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; but it is raised in incorruption. It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power; It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, “Death is swallowed up in victory.” (1 Cor 15: 35-39).
