Christ Didn’t Raise Himself From The Dead

In the world today there is a teaching that says, “Christ couldn’t die because he is God”, but the Bible doesn’t agree with that teaching, the Bible makes it very clear that Christ died & God raised Christ from the dead.

Acts 2:22  You men of Israel, listen to what I have to say: Yeshua of Nazareth, a Man accredited {and} pointed out {and} shown forth {and} commended {and} attested to you by God by the mighty works and [the power of performing] wonders and signs which God worked through him [right] in your midst, as you yourselves know–

Acts 2:23  This Yeshua, when delivered up according to the definite {and} fixed purpose {and} settled plan and foreknowledge of God, you crucified {and} put out of the way [killing him] by the hands of lawless {and} wicked men.

Acts 2:24  [But] God raised him up, liberating him from the pangs of death, seeing that it was not possible for him to continue to be controlled {or} retained by it.

Acts 2:25  For David says in regard to him, I saw the Lord constantly before me, for he is at my right hand that I may not be shaken {or} overthrown {or} cast down [from my secure and happy state].

Acts 2:26  Therefore my heart rejoiced and my tongue exulted exceedingly; moreover, my flesh also will dwell in hope [will encamp, pitch its tent, and dwell in hope in anticipation of the resurrection].

Acts 2:27  For You [God] will not abandon my soul, leaving it helpless in Hades (the state of departed spirits), nor let Your Holy One know decay {or} see destruction [of the body after death].

Acts 2:28  You have made known to me the ways of life; You will enrapture me [diffusing my soul with joy] with {and} in Your presence.

Acts 2:29  Brethren, it is permitted me to tell you confidently {and} with freedom concerning the patriarch David that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us to this day.

Acts 2:30  Being however a prophet, and knowing that God had sealed to him with an oath that He would set one of his descendants on his throne, [II Sam. 7:12-16; Ps. 132:11.]

Acts 2:31  He [David], foreseeing this, spoke [by foreknowledge] of the resurrection of the Christ (the Messiah) that he was not deserted [in death] {and} left in Hades (the state of departed spirits), nor did his body know decay {or} see destruction.

Acts 2:32  This Yeshua has God raised up, and of that all we [his disciples] are witnesses.

Acts 3:13  The God of Abraham and of Isaac and of Jacob, the God of our forefathers, has glorified His Servant {and} Son Yeshua [doing him this honor], Whom you indeed delivered up and denied {and} rejected {and} disowned in the presence of Pilate, when he had determined to let him go.

Acts 3:14  But you denied {and} rejected {and} disowned the Pure {and} Holy, the Just {and} Blameless One, and demanded [the pardon of] a murderer to be granted to you.

Acts 3:15  But you killed the very Source (the Author) of life, Whom God raised from the dead. To this we are witnesses.

Christ’s death and resurrection is the foundation of Christianity, if Christ couldn’t die because he is God, then Christ never was resurrected from the dead, and if Christ was never resurrected, then no one can be born from above (born of the Spirit).

The Bible never says, “Christ couldn’t die because he is God.”

If Christ couldn’t die because he is God, then no one could be born of the Spirit, because it is through Christ’s death and resurrection that God’s chosen people are born from above (born of the Spirit). The same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead, lives in those who are born from above.

When it comes to the Bible it is important to understand that the Bible doesn’t contradict itself, if one verse in the Bible says, “Christ is a man”, then no verse in the Bible can say, “Christ is God.”

Jn 8:40  But now you seek to kill me [Christ] a man that has told you the truth, which I have heard from God.

The Bible says God is a Spirit (Jn 4:24), a Spirit can never be a man (flesh and blood), but a Spirit can live inside a man, it is the Spirit of God that lived in the man Christ that made Christ one with God, and it is the Spirit of God (the Holy Spirit) that lives in those who are born of the Spirit, that makes those who are born of the Spirit, one with God and Christ (Jn 17:21).

Jn 4:24  God is a Spirit

Jn 17:21  That they all [all who believe Yeshua is the Messiah] may be one, [just] as You, Father, are in me and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, so that the world may believe {and} be convinced that You have sent me.

In the world today there is a teaching that says, “Christ couldn’t die because he is God”, but the Bible doesn’t agree with that teaching, the Bible makes it very clear that Christ died and God raised Christ from the dead.

A Christian is someone that is led by the Holy Spirit, no one led by the Holy Spirit will ever say, “Christ didn’t die because he is God, or say, “Christ is God”, because that does not agree with what the Bible says. No one led by the Holy Spirit will ever say something that does not agree with what the Bible says.

If someone claims to be Christian and says something that does not agree with the truth that is written in the Bible, the person is not led by the Holy Spirit, the person is led by the flesh, those who are led by the flesh are not the children of God.

Rom 8:14  For all who are led by the Spirit of God [the Holy Spirit] are the children of God.

In the world today there are many people that claim to be Christian that say it is ok for there to be different denominations in the church, that it is ok for a Christian to believe something different than what another Christian believes, but the Bible does not support different denominations in the church, 1 Corinthians 1:10 says that the church is supposed to believe the same thing.

1 Cor. 1:10  But I urge {and} entreat you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, that all of you be in perfect harmony {and} full agreement in what you say, and that there be no dissensions {or} factions {or} divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in your common understanding and in your opinions {and} judgments.

The teaching that says, “Christ is God” is false, here is a link to my posts that will show why the teaching that says, “Christ is God” is false https://bornfromabove7.wordpress.com/category/christ-is-not-god/
