The Cross is where forgiveness was given but the resurrection was where the power was released. We have been taught to receive the forgiveness but we have not been taught to receive and live in the power of the resurrection. The ascension of Jesus to the right hand of the Father is where authority to release the power was obtained. The death – burial – resurrection – and ascension is the full gospel. It takes all four for us to walk in the fullness of salvation.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes …
Jesus took all sin upon himself at the cross and took it into the grave …. Good News.
Jesus arose from the grave in power giving us new life ….. Good News
Jesus ascended to the right hand of Father God and was given authority over all things. ….. Good News
Because of the cross and the grave, I am forgiven and sin’s power is broken. Because of the resurrection I am given a new life in right standing with God. I am a new creation in Christ Jesus. Because of His ascension I am seated with Him in heavenly places in a position of authority.
Ephesians 1:19-21… what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.
