Light for the Last Days

Acts 2 – What shall we do?

FULL SERMON VIDEO

In verse 24, Paul says God raised Him up ‘having loosed the pains of death’ because it was not possible that He should be held by death. It wasn’t possible for Jesus to be held by death. Why was that? Jesus is God. He was God made flesh; He came to the earth to die as a sacrifice for the sin of the world. His body was placed in a tomb, His body was put to death, but His spirit – it says in the Book of Luke – returned to God. Then, on the third day, it returned into the body and raised Jesus’ body. His body was raised from the dead. A miracle, something which has only happened once in history. It was something which opened the way for everybody else who believes in Jesus to be raised from the dead, to receive new life in Jesus and have an eternal relationship with God through faith in Jesus Christ.
