Resurrection 3
By Rev. Robert Ampiah-Kwofi

Christ died because of our sins.
Jesus took our place as our substitute and became guilty of our sins.
Christ’s resurrection proved that the penalty of our sins had been successfully paid.
Hebrews 9:12 KJV
“Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.”
His resurrection is the proof that He has accomplished His mission.
Romans 4:25 NIV
“He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.”

Justification is a legal term that means we have been declared righteous.
It means we have been acquitted and discharged.
Christ’s resurrection accomplished our justification.
2 Corinthians 5:21 NKJV
“For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”

Our salvation is based on our faith in His resurrection.
Romans 10:9 NKJV
“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”

The key aspect of Christ’s ministry that brought us salvation is His death and resurrection.
He died for our sins and He arose to declare us righteous.
His victory is our victory.
1 Peter 1:3 ESV
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.”

We are born again, and we have a hope of everlasting life, through Christ’s resurrection.
Romans 6:4 NKJV
“Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.”

May you walk in a new kind of glory and grace.
May you enjoy the blessedness of newness of life, in Jesus’ name.

Resurrection 2
By Rev. Robert Ampiah-Kwofi

Our Lord Jesus prophesied so often about His coming resurrection, that even His enemies worried about it.
After Christ was crucified, a wealthy disciple named Joseph of Arimathea, went to Pilate and asked that Jesus’ dead body should be given to him for burial.
Matthew 27:58 NIV
“Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus’ body, and Pilate ordered that it be given to him.”

Joseph buried Christ in his own new tomb.
Matthew 27:59-60 NIV
“Joseph took the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and placed it in his own new tomb that he had cut out of the rock. He rolled a big stone in front of the entrance to the tomb and went away.”

The following day, the chief priests and Pharisees went to Pilate with haste.
They were troubled by Christ’s prediction of His resurrection.
Matthew 27:63
“Sir,” they said, “we remember that while he was still alive that deceiver said, ‘After three days I will rise again.”

They wanted to take every action in their power to prevent Christ’s resurrection.
Matthew 27:64 NIV
“So give the order for the tomb to be made secure until the third day. Otherwise, his disciples may come and steal the body and tell the people that he has been raised from the dead. This last deception will be worse than the first.”

So these religious leaders went out to make sure nobody could enter or exit, the tomb.
Matthew 27:66 NIV
“So they went and made the tomb secure by putting a seal on the stone and posting the guard.”

They secured the tomb by placing the king’s seal on the great stone. They also had soldiers guarding the tomb.
On the third day exactly, Jesus rose from the dead. None of their countermeasures could stop Him.
You are also unstoppable by grace of God.
No force on earth can stop your progress and growth in Christ, in Jesus’ name.

Resurrection 1
By Rev Robert Ampiah-Kwofi

The most outstanding aspect of Christ’s life and ministry was His resurrection.
His resurrection had been prophesied by king David.
Acts 2:29 NIV
“Fellow Israelites, I can tell you confidently that the patriarch David died and was buried, and his tomb is here to this day.”

David was a prophet as well as a king.
Acts 2:30 NIV
“But he was a prophet and knew that God had promised him on oath that he would place one of his descendants on his throne.”

David foresaw Christ’s resurrection.
Acts 2:31 NIV
“Seeing what was to come, he spoke of the resurrection of the Messiah, that he was not abandoned to the realm of the dead, nor did his body see decay.”

David uttered this prophecy in the book of Psalms.
Speaking of the Messiah he said, in
Psalms 16:10 KJV
“For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell;
neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.”

Christ Himself also predicted His resurrection repeatedly.
John 2:19 NKJV
“Jesus answered and said to them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”

The Jews mistakenly assumed He was talking of the rebuilt temple of Solomon.
John 2:20 NKJV
“Then the Jews said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in three days?”

Jesus was talking of resurrection of His human body in three days.
John 2:21 NKJV
“But He was speaking of the temple of His body.”

His own disciples understood Him later, after His resurrection.
John 2:22 NKJV
“Therefore, when He had risen from the dead, His disciples remembered that He had said this to them; and they believed the Scripture and the word which Jesus had said.”

Jesus triumphed by His resurrection.
May you also rise victoriously above all challenges and barriers.
May you triumph over your greatest opposition, in Jesus’ name.

Dearly Beloved, Grace to you.

Divine Responses to Sacrifice 5
By Rev. Robert Ampiah-Kwofi

The story of Abraham’s sacrifice of Isaac is actually a beautiful picture of God the Father, giving His beloved Son, Jesus Christ as an offering for sin.
Abraham represents God the Father while Isaac represents Jesus Christ.
Galatians 3:16 NKJV
“Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed,” who is Christ.”

Abraham’s natural seed is Isaac. Abraham had eight sons.
Ishmael by Hagar, and six sons by Keturah (Genesis 25:1-2) and Isaac by Sarah.
However Isaac is the only designated “seed.”
Hebrews 11:18 NKJV
“Of whom it was said, “In Isaac your seed shall be called,”

Spiritually however, “Abraham’s Seed” is a term for our Lord Jesus Christ and his church.
Galatians 3:29 NKJV
“And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”

Abraham’s blessings and promises belong to the church of Jesus Christ. Redemption ushered the church into blessings.
Galatians 3:13 NKJV
“Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”)

Christ delivered us from the curse and paved the way for us to receive Abraham’s blessing.
Galatians 3:14 NKJV
“That the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.”

Jesus Christ’s greatest happiness is to see you saved and blessed.
Isaiah 53:11 NKJV
“He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied. By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many, For He shall bear their iniquities.”

Our Saviour is satisfied by seeing you blessed.

May you enjoy the blessings of Abraham and the benefits of the cross.
May God satisfy you with His favour, in Jesus’ name.

Divine Responses to Sacrifice 4
By Rev Robert Ampiah-Kwofi

God responded to Abraham’s willingness to offer Isaac, with multiplied blessings.
God spoke to Abraham twice that day. God spoke to him the first time to put his knife away, and not harm Isaac. God spoke to him again after he offered the ram.
Genesis 22:15 NKJV
“Then the Angel of the Lord called to Abraham a second time out of heaven,”

God swore an oath to Abraham.
Genesis 22:16 NKJV
“And said: “By Myself I have sworn, says the Lord, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son—”

God had already blessed Abraham in the day he called him, in Genesis 12:1-3, but this new blessing was on a higher level.
Genesis 22:17 NIV
“I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore. Your descendants will take possession of the cities of their enemies.”

The descendants of Abraham would possess the gates of their enemies.
Genesis 22:18 NIV
“And through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed me.”

All nations would be blessed by Abraham’s descendants.
Abraham’s natural descendants through Isaac, who are the Jews, have blessed the world a great deal.
The greatest blessing of Abraham’s descendants however, has come through his spiritual seed who is Christ.
Galatians 3:16 NKJV
“Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed,” who is Christ.”

The church is the seed of Abraham through Christ.
Galatians 3:29 NIV
“If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”

You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.
May you be a great blessing to your world through the power of God, in Jesus’ name.

Divine Responses to Sacrifice 3
By Rev. Robert Ampiah-Kwofi

God only wanted Abraham to be willing and ready to offer up Isaac. He stopped Abraham, from harming Isaac.
Genesis 22:12 NKJV
“And He said, “Do not lay your hand on the lad, or do anything to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me.”

Abraham had passed the test of faith with flying colours.

Abraham believed that God would provide a sacrifice.
Isaac had asked Abraham a key question on the way.
Genesis 22:7 NKJV
“But Isaac spoke to Abraham his father and said, “My father!” And he said, “Here I am, my son.” Then he said, “Look, the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?”

They had everything for a sacrifice but they had no animal.
Abraham’s answer was prophetic and faith filled.
Genesis 22:8 NKJV
“And Abraham said, “My son, God will provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering.” So the two of them went together.”

Abraham believed that God would resurrect Isaac.
On the third day, Abraham left his servants behind and went on with Isaac.
Genesis 22:5 NKJV
“And Abraham said to his young men, “Stay here with the donkey; the lad and I will go yonder and worship, and we will come back to you.”

Abraham declared in faith that, he would return with Isaac.
He knew he was going to sacrifice Isaac but, he was sure that God would resurrect him.
Hebrews 11:17 NKJV
“By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises offered up his only begotten son”

Abraham believed God would resurrect Isaac.
Hebrews 11:19 NKJV
“Concluding that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead, from which he also received him in a figurative sense.”

May you also operate in great faith. May you have an assurance of total ultimate victory in all things, in Jesus’ name.

Divine Responses to Sacrifice 2
By Rev Robert Ampiah-Kwofi

Abraham received two instructions from God to bring very specific sacrifices.
The first was the instruction to bring five animals.
He obeyed, and God made an everlasting covenant with him.
Several years later, Abraham again received a command to sacrifice his son Isaac.
Genesis 22:2 NIV
“Then God said, “Take your son, your only son, whom you love—Isaac—and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you.”

Abraham promptly obeyed and took Isaac to Moriah, and prepared to sacrifice him.
Genesis 22:9 NIV
“When they reached the place God had told him about, Abraham built an altar there and arranged the wood on it. He bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood.”

Abraham raised his knife to kill Isaac.
Genesis 22:10 NIV
“Then he reached out his hand and took the knife to slay his son.”

God stopped him.
Genesis 22:12 NIV
“Do not lay a hand on the boy,” he said. “Do not do anything to him. Now I know that you fear God, because you have not withheld from me your son, your only son.”

Abraham lifted his eyes and saw a ram trapped in the bushes.
He sacrificed the ram instead.
Genesis 22:13 NIV
“Abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram caught by its horns. He went over and took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son.”

Abraham called the place Jehovah Jireh which means the Lord will provide.
Genesis 22:14 NKJV
“And Abraham called the name of the place, The-Lord-Will-Provide; as it is said to this day, “In the Mount of the Lord it shall be provided.”

The ram’s horn is its greatest
weapon. God neutralized that weapon!
The ram could not escape, neither could it fight Abraham, because it’s horns were trapped in the bushes.
Then the Lord blessed Abraham.
Genesis 22:17a NIV
“I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore.”

May you lift your eyes and see Almighty God’s abundant provision for your life.
May God’s provision never escape your hands, in Jesus’ name.

Divine Responses to Sacrifice 1
By Rev Robert Ampiah-Kwofi

We have learnt from Abel that a proper sacrifice provokes a divine response of blessing and favour.
Genesis 4:4 NIV
“And Abel also brought an offering—fat portions from some of the firstborn of his flock. The Lord looked with favor on Abel and his offering,”

Noah also offered a proper sacrifice that pleased God.
Genesis 8:20
“Then Noah built an altar to the Lord and, taking some of all the clean animals and clean birds, he sacrificed burnt offerings on it.”

Noah’s sacrifices provoked a major divine response.
Genesis 8:21
“The Lord smelled the pleasing aroma and said in his heart: “Never again will I curse the ground because of humans, even though every inclination of the human heart is evil from childhood. And never again will I destroy all living creatures, as I have done.”

Abraham also offered 5 sacrifices in obedience to God’s instruction.
Genesis 15:9-10 NIV
“So the Lord said to him, “Bring me a heifer, a goat and a ram, each three years old, along with a dove and a young pigeon.”
Abram brought all these to him, cut them in two and arranged the halves opposite each other; the birds, however, he did not cut in half.”

God responded with a mighty supernatural fire.
Genesis 15:17 NIV
“When the sun had set and darkness had fallen, a smoking firepot with a blazing torch appeared and passed between the pieces.”

God responded further with an eternal covenant.
Genesis 15:18 NIV
“On that day the Lord made a covenant with Abram and said, “To your descendants I give this land, from the Wadi of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates—”

May the Lord honour all your sacrifices and service to His kingdom.
May the Lord bless you in a major way, in Jesus’ name.

Notable Sacrifices 30
By Rev Robert Ampiah-Kwofi

The importance of a sacrifice is based on the response of the one who receives it.
The most remarkable thing about the sacrifices of Cain and Abel, is the way God responded differently to each.
Genesis 4:4 NKJV
“Abel also brought of the firstborn of his flock and of their fat. And the Lord respected Abel and his offering,”

Cain got a completely different response.
Genesis 4:5 NKJV
“But He did not respect Cain and his offering. And Cain was very angry, and his countenance fell.”

The Scriptures do not tell us specifically how God showed His respect to Abel’s sacrifice, but we know that it was practical and physical.
Abel’s sacrifice received a sign from heaven, that Cain’s sacrifice did not receive.
Cain was very disappointed because, his sacrifice did not receive the divine response, that he was expecting.
Abraham offered Isaac, in expectation of a divine response.
Hebrews 11:17 NKJV
“By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,”

Abraham expected God to respond by resurrecting Isaac.
Hebrews 11:19 NKJV
“Concluding that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead, from which he also received him in a figurative sense.”

Abraham had once seen God’s physical, tangible response to a sacrifice that God asked him to bring.
Genesis 15:9 NKJV
“So He said to him, “Bring Me a three-year-old heifer, a three-year-old female goat, a three-year-old ram, a turtledove, and a young pigeon.”

Abraham brought these sacrifices and cut them in pieces.
God responded marvelously.
Genesis 15:17 NKJV
“And it came to pass, when the sun went down and it was dark, that behold, there appeared a smoking oven and a burning torch that passed between those pieces.”

Abraham expected God to do it again.

Your sacrifices will never be in vain. May the Lord respond tangibly and promptly to your good deeds of faith, in Jesus’ name.

Notable Sacrifices 29
By Rev. Robert Ampiah-Kwofi

Sacrifices become beneficial through faith.
Without faith, a sacrifice becomes worthless, before God.
Hebrews 11:6
“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”

Abel’s sacrifice was accepted because of his faith.
Hebrews 11:4 NKJV
“By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, through which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts; and through it he being dead still speaks.”

Faithless Cain was rude.
Genesis 4:9 NKJV
“Then the Lord said to Cain, “Where is Abel your brother?” He said, “I do not know. Am I my brother’s keeper?”

Abraham’s sacrifice was also inspired by his faith.
Hebrews 11:17 NKJV
“By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises offered up his only begotten son.”

Abraham believed that God would resurrect Isaac.
Four scriptures emphasize the importance of faith in a Believer’s life.
Faith for vision.
Habakkuk 2:4 NKJV
“Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith.”

Faith for salvation
Romans 1:16 NKJV
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written,
“The just shall live by faith.”

Faith for righteousness
Galatians 3:11 NKJV
“But that no one is justified by the law in the sight of God is evident, for “the just shall live by faith.”

Faith for perseverance
Hebrews 10:38
“Now the just shall live by faith; But if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him.”

May you live a victorious life by faith. May you persevere in living a righteous life to fulfill your vision, in Jesus’ name.
