april 2013 Hello and welcome to The Pentecostals of Sydney where you can experience new life in Christ! Risen While the western world celebrates this Easter holiday period as merely some token of what many may or may not believe as the crucifixion of Christ. There are those who do not believe that Jesus is the Lord or that he even existed at all. Then there are those who do believe that Jesus lived, walked the earth and died a cruel and agonizing death upon the Roman instrument of torture; the cross. I believe this to be true because there is overwhelming historical, documentary and even personal evidence to affirm this. Not only did Jesus die and was buried in a tomb but the Bible account of His resurrection also stands as one of the most controversial topics from all disciplines and religions. Simply because if Jesus died and was buried but did NOT rise from the dead, then he is just another man. In fact he would be even worse than that because he promised and predicted that he would, thus he would have been a liar and a failure. However, since He did resurrect from the dead, the implications are enormous. Jesus was constantly tested and without fail he proved His deity and power with miracles, signs and wonders. His own death was the ultimate test of this, proving He had power over man’s ultimate futility. Secondly, Jesus proved that the words He spoke were true and that not even death could falter them.

The implications upon humanity is also huge. Since He proved that He is in fact God, and that what He said is true, then we must do everything in our power to hear His words and do them. The great news is that Jesus can be trusted, his words are reliable and we have the hope of resurrection one day, which gives meaning to our lives today. Paul said “If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.� 1 Cor 15:19. The great apostle is right, in that if our lives are limited to only our earthly existence then that is a very daunting and depressing prospect. Thank God our hope is for more than a great life here on earth with Christ but that we will reign with Him for eternity. This ought to lift us out of misery and depression. One day we shall be free from the shackles of this human body and the limitations of life on this planet. One day we shall be unleashed and truly free. This I reiterate not only brings meaning to our conduct; our living right, doing good and discipline which will be worth it all, but this brings us joy and joy unspeakable. Be encouraged today; be not weary in well doing for you shall reap in due season if you faint not. Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. Rev 22:20

God bless you, Pastor Stan Harvey

These classes are very beneficial to your Christian walk, so take your first steps with Jesus today!
