The Mystery of The Passion, The Resurrection and Power of Salvation in Christianity

The Mystery of The Passion, The Resurrection and Power of Salvation in Christianity

The celebration of Easter is based on The Passion of our Lord and Messiah Jesus Christ from His triumphant entrance into Jerusalem to His arrest, trial and His crucifixion on Mount Calvary; followed by His victorious resurrection which is the confirmation of our Salvation.
King David and Prophet Isaiah gave extraordinary revelations of the birth, The Passion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ hundreds of years before He was born by the Virgin Mary.
The accuracies in the Holy Bible are astonishing.
But majority of church goers who confess and profess to be believers and Christians often fail to express the power of their faith, because they have failed to worship Almighty God JEHOVAH heart and soul and spirit.
As it is written in John 4:24:
"God is spirit, and His worshipers must worship Him in the Spirit and in truth."

You cannot experience the power of our faith if you are just playing church in eye service and lip service without practicing Christianity.
You cannot worship God in conceit and deceit.
Almighty God does not answer the prayers of liars.
Jesus Christ said clearly as it is written in John 14:15:
"If you love me, keep my commandments."
That is the only way to prove that you are a true Christian.
And until you do so, you can never experience the power of our faith which is our spiritual strength.
Majority of church goers are just emotional without spiritual relationship with God. And you cannot have any relationship with Him without connection to His Holy Spirit.

Before Jesus Christ started his divine mission, He was baptized by Prophet John and then the glory of the Holy Spirit descended upon him.

Note the Water and the Spirit and then he started his mission which ended with the bleeding and shedding of His precious innocent blood as the immaculate lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world as written in Matthew 26:28:
"This is my blood of the new covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins."
It is written in Revelation 12:11: "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death".

The mystery of The Passion and the Resurrection and the power of our faith is revealed in First John 5:5-12:

5 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.

6 This is the one who came by water and blood—Jesus Christ. He did not come by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. 7 For there are three that testify: 8 the[a] Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement. 9 We accept human testimony, but God’s testimony is greater because it is the testimony of God, which he has given about his Son. 10 Whoever believes in the Son of God accepts this testimony. Whoever does not believe God has made him out to be a liar, because they have not believed the testimony God has given about his Son. 11 And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.
