Sermon Notes from Resurrection Sunday April 5, 2015
THE DEATH OF ADAM AND THE RESURRECTION OF CHRIST
Sermon by, Pastor Bryan Walker, One Way Christian Center, Olustee, OK
(Prayer) Psalms 80: 18 Then we shall not turn back from you; give us life, and we will call upon your name! (19) Restore us, O LORD God of hosts! Let your face shine, that we may be saved!
Jesus has risen from the grave!
Why is this so important?
What does it mean to you?
What did it accomplish?
Death through Adam
Spiritual Death – Now
Physical Death – Later
Life through Christ
Spiritual Life – Now
Physical Live – Later
• Alive Physically and Spiritually
Surely Die = DIE, DIE
Eph 2:1; Eph 2:5; Col 2:13; Mat 8:22; Joh 5:25
• Man was formed in the image of God
• He breathed into him breath of life
• Adam communed with God
• He lived in the Garden of Eden
• He named all the animals
• He was provide for, in abundance
• He was given a choice
• Adam free choice
• Not tainted by sin
• Not fallen
• What is THE FALL?
• Correct diagnosis is ½ the cure! Identify the problem!
• What happened?
• Did Adam die???
• See a Changed Adam!
o Eyes were opened
o Know of their nakedness
o Sew fig leaves together – Need for a covering
o Hid themselves from God
• Why? Guilty!
o They didn’t go to God
o God went to them
• Backsliding – sin
o Desire is to get away from God
o Spring break – far away from parents
Not for righteousness
• Adam and Eve, Hid from God
PROBLEM and SOLUTION
ADAM and CHRIST
Adam’s trespass led to condemnation (death) –
Christ’s righteousness leads to justification (life)
Topic is reconciliation (5:10) justification & salvation
Romans 5 topic is not physical but spiritual
RESURRECTION OF LAZARUS
Resurrection and the life –
Not by Lazarus power!
Power of God – Dead men live!!!
1 Corinthians 15:21-22
RESURRECTION OF CHRIST
You are looking for Christ in the wrong place!!!
Christ is not dead!
Christ is ALIVE!
Adam Died Spiritually – Now
Sin- separated the Soul from God
Adam’s desire was NOT for God
They don’t meet in the middle
God comes to Him
God seeks the lost
God covers his nakedness
God provides LIFE through the PROMISE
Adam Died Physically – Later
Soul was separated from his Body
YOUR – Regeneration Spiritually (Born Again) – Now!
YOUR – Regeneration Physically (Resurrection of Body) – Later
Christ has risen from the grave by death he conquered death!
Everyone is broken in some way
Some more than others!
His payment was enough!
His victory is final!
Stop running, swallow your pride! Confess your sins!
Eternal life is at stake
