An Unshakable Faith

The very foundation of Christianity is based on the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. 
Without His death and sacrifice of blood, there is no forgiveness of sin. (Heb 9:23)
Without the resurrection from the dead, we have no hope for eternity. 
On the Saturday of Passion week, we remember the time Jesus spent in the tomb. “ … they sealed the tomb and posted guards to protect it” (Matthew 27:66)
The very fact that they stood guard outside the tomb of Jesus, is another form of proof that He did rise from the dead… no one could have stolen His body, or tried to explain away the victorious fact of resurrection! Soldiers were there when the stone was rolled away and the body was gone! 
The Son of God was sacrificed on our behalf for the purpose of atoning for our sins.
When Jesus taught this to the people of that time, many considered it heresy and as a result, they demanded His death by crucifixion, a common means of punishment for lawbreakers. Instead of offering a defense before the councils, Jesus was silent. Why? It was the divine plan of the Father God, from the beginning of time, that this be done so that we might have forgiveness and life. It was His divine purpose. 
The resurrection of Jesus Christ is a gift from God and fulfillment of His promise. It is the very foundation of our Christianity.
“Now, brothers and sisters, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain.
For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that He was buried, that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures” (1 Cor 15)
This is our unshakable faith … 
There was no access to heaven before Jesus had paid the ultimate price for mankind, but the moment He have His life for us, was the moment He brought deliverance to all mankind …
A life without Christ can only offer eternal death, but the acceptance of Jesus as our risen Savior gives us eternal life. Because eternal death is not what God wants for us, He provided a way of atonement through the crucifixion of His Son, Jesus, and His resurrection.
