–John 3:16 Were it not for that place and that death on the Cross of Calvary, we would all be hopelessly lost and helpless to get to God and go to heaven. Calvary was the place where God's Amazing Grace was shown to all who would accept by faith the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ. What is the purpose of the death on the cross?

For them, the death of Jesus was part of a divine plan to save humanity. The death and resurrection of this one man is at the very heart of the Christian faith. For Christians, it is through Jesus's death that people's broken relationship with God is restored. This is known as the Atonement. The death of Jesus Christ on the Cross of Calvary and His resurrection marked the end of our defeat. Through this, we were supernaturally transformed from defeat to victory. Therefore, by the power of His resurrection, the last defeat you saw is the last you will ever see!

From captivity to liberty: The Bible says: Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality (Matthew 27:50-53).

It turns out filthiness to holiness: As it is written: So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in in corruption (1 Corinthians 15:42). That means every deadly habit inflicted by the enemy to destroy our destinies is destroyed by the power of Christ's resurrection. Paul speaking concerning the resurrected Christ, said: That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death (Philippians 3:10).

In other words, the power of Jesus' resurrection makes us conformable to the newness of life that He offers. It turns our shame to glory: It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power (1 Corinthians 15:43). Jesus' mockers spat on His face, placed a crown of thorns on His head and made Him a laughing stock for passersby, but He was raised in glory. Therefore, the power of Jesus' resurrection is ordained to restore our glory.

Sown in weakness but raised in power. The Bible speaking of Jesus, said: It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body (1 Corinthians 15:44). Remember, we were buried and raised together with Christ and made to sit with Him in heavenly places. That means we were raised with a spiritual body. Therefore, just as demons' demonize' people, the resurrection power 'spiritualises' or 'divinizes' our mortal bodies.

In other words, the resurrection power emboldens God's people dangerously. As it is written: And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all (Acts 4:33). From natural to supernatural: By the power of Jesus' resurrection, we are not permitted to live a natural life. This is because His resurrection translates us from the natural realm to the supernatural. Concerning Jesus, the Bible says: It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body (1 Corinthians 15:44).

By the power of Jesus' resurrection, we move from the terrestrial to the celestial, where we operate by His spiritual Body, and death comes under our feet, practically (Romans 8:11; see also Philippians 2:5-13).

From failure to breakthrough: The Bible says: And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in the earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen (Matthew 28:18-20).

From sickness to health: 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).

Resurrection is our translation from death to life: The Bible says: I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death (Revelation 1:18; see also John 14:19). From the above scripture, we understand that the key of death is not in the hand of the devil. That means he has no right to determine our lifespan.

We also discover from the scriptures that after the resurrection of Jesus, death constitutes no more threat to us because what actually kills is the fear of death. As it is written: Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage (Hebrews 2:14-15).

Thus, Christ delivered us from death so that we can be free from the fear of death; that is what the resurrection power does. However, it is important to know that the moment we subscribe to the fear of death, we become its next victim.

Without the fear of death, we are never candidates for death. Remember, fear always brings a snare and exposes us to the manipulations and wickedness of the wicked. However, the good news is that the power of Jesus' resurrection has delivered us supernaturally (1 John 4:18-19).

Let's recognize that the power of resurrection is the demonstration of the exceedingly great power of God that no force of darkness can resist. This is why the resurrection of Christ generates infallible proof. After the resurrection of Christ, the Bible records: To whom also he showed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God (Acts 1:3).
