1 Corinthians 15:3–6 NASB95
3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, 5 and that He appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. 6 After that He appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time, most of whom remain until now, but some have fallen asleep;

1 Corinthians 15:12–20 NASB95
12 Now if Christ is preached, that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, not even Christ has been raised; 14 and if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is vain, your faith also is vain. 15 Moreover we are even found to be false witnesses of God, because we testified against God that He raised Christ, whom He did not raise, if in fact the dead are not raised. 16 For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised; 17 and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins. 18 Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. 19 If we have hoped in Christ in this life only, we are of all men most to be pitied. 20 But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who are asleep.
Look at your neighbor and say, “This at No JOKE! There will be a resurrection.

no April fools joke here.. He has risen and risen indeed.
in the Garden the serpent walks over to eve..
The Heart of a son The Heart of a son

He asked Eve, “God said you can eat of the tree in the garden, right?

He asked her, “God said you can eat of the tree in the garden, right?
He asked Eve, “God said you can eat of the tree in the garden, right?
The Heart of a son The Heart of a son

Eve replies,“Well, God told us we can’t touch the tree of the knowledge of good and evil or we will die.”

Eve replies,“Well, God told us we can’t touch the tree of the knowledge of good and evil or we will die.”
Eve replies,“Well, God told us we can’t touch the tree of the knowledge of good and evil or we will die.”
she acknowledges the safety in the order and the chaos in the disobedience
order is stability and chaos is that stability crumbling under our feet
eve’s whole world is about to change as she takes the fruit and give it to Adam.
Their eyes were open…

Genesis 3:10 NASB95
10 He said, “I heard the sound of You in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself.”
gen 3
They are lost because they were separated
God didn't give Him the spirit of Fear
man become isolated and alienated and cured
i was afraid because i was naked..
why are you afraid now.. you have always been naked. what change?
man became self-conscience
he sees hes weakness , his shortcomings and his problem.. and instead of running to God. he runs from Him...
total chaos… but i got good news.. help me preach this
there will be a resurrection
look at what he says in to Eve in
Genesis 3:16 NASB95
16 To the woman He said, “I will greatly multiply Your pain in childbirth, In pain you will bring forth children; Yet your desire will be for your husband, And he will rule over you.”
Notice the result of chaos is pain..
if you want to get rid of the pain, lets first deal with the chaos..
The idea in the creation story is that order come forth out of chaos.and this is the hope that even if the worst of things happen to us..
if we fall into the worst of sins.
if our marriages face the hardest of time.
THERE WILL BE A RESURRECTION
look at the promise that comes out of the chaos
look at what GOD tells the serpent
he cures him in verse 14
and in verse 15 he saids… Her seed will crush your head
and in verse 21
God kills an animal and clovers them with the bloody skin of the animal. Showing us “ for something guilty to live something innocent must die.”
Only blood can cover sin
Paul tells us in our text.
For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,
you messed up and did wrong, but Jesus got up and did right…
out of chaos the prophecied seed.. the word that became flesh.. jesus came to us..
the persecuted him.. lied and spit on him..
Barabbas, a prisoner was chosen by the crowd, over Jesus Christ, to be released by Pontius Pilate in a customary pardon before the feast of Passover.
this criminal.. thug.. sinner… who deserved death for his crime was replace by a man that know no sin
when i think of Barabbas i think of me.. that was Barabbas’ cross.. But jesus took his place
that was my punishment ,but he went to hell for me.
he step into my chaos took my pain
they hung him high, they stretched him wide, he hung his head for me he died,
again the earth was filled with total chaos.

Paul says 6 things that if there was no resurrection

4) no one would be redeemed from sin (v. 17)
5) all former believers would have perished (v.18)

i laughed and said yes, thank God. but because there has been one.. there will be a resurrection...
not only o we have hope that we can raise us up out of darkness and death.
1 Corinthians 15:45–50 NASB95
45 So also it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living soul.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit. 46 However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural; then the spiritual. 47 The first man is from the earth, earthy; the second man is from heaven. 48 As is the earthy, so also are those who are earthy; and as is the heavenly, so also are those who are heavenly. 49 Just as we have borne the image of the earthy, we will also bear the image of the heavenly. 50 Now I say this, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.
1 cor 15:
now look at the resurrection that is to come
1 Corinthians 15:51–57 NASB95
51 Behold, I tell you a mystery; we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed, 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. 53 For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 But when this perishable will have put on the imperishable, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then will come about the saying that is written, “Death is swallowed up in victory. 55 “O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” 56 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law; 57 but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 cor 15:51-
oh victory in Jesus song
O victory in Jesus, My Savior, forever. He sought me and bought me With His redeeming blood; He loved me ere I knew Him And all my love is due Him, He plunged me to victory, Beneath the cleansing flood.
I heard an old, old story, How a Savior came from glory, How He gave His life on Calvary To save a wretch like me; I heard about His groaning, Of His precious blood's atoning, Then I repented of my sins And won the victory.
