A message preached from 1 Corinthians chapter 15 and Daniel chapter 2 by Dr J Stewart Gillespie.

 

Outline notes for the above message:

In 1 Corinthians chapter 15, the apostle presents the necessity of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, from 4 great necessities:

  1. Proof of the Gospel (v1-11)
  • Text of Scripture (v3-4)
  • Triumph of Resurrection (v4)
  • Testimony of Eye Witnesses (v5-8)
  • Transformed Life of Paul (v9-11)
  1. Problem of Denying the Resurrection (v12-19)

We need a living Saviour for:

  • Justification by Faith (Isa 53; Roms 4)
  • Relationship with God (Roms 5)
  • Atonement / Reconciliation (Rroms 5)
  • Redemption (Roms 8)
  • High Priestly ministry of Christ (Hebs 2,4,7)
  • Eternal Security (Heb 7:25)
  • Resurrection (John 11)
  • Home in Heaven (John 14)
  1. Picture of Resurrection (v20-23)

Firstfruits

Not only a Feast of Jehovah and part of Gods redemptive plan but following on after the passover and in fact on the morrow after the Sabbath – that is the Sunday, the 1st Day of the week.

  1. Purpose of God in Human Politics (v24-28)

An unusual / unexpected angle on resurrection

The resurrection and victory of Jesus Christ over the grave and over death was an essential part of the fulfilment of Gods Purpose for the universe.

He must reign till He hath put all enemies under His feet” (1 Co 15:25)

If Christ is to subdue all enemies under His feet, He cannot reign over a world which still remains affected by death.

If Christ is to possess all rule and all authority and power (15:24) then there can be no rebellion against Him.

No rebellion against Him, means no rebellion against God.

No rebellion against God means no sin

No sin means no death!

A victory over all for Christ necessitates a victory over sin and death.

Christ could not truly be described as so ruling if the world remains in:

  • Rejection
  • Rebellion

‘Must He Reign’ (v25) ?

We note that the reign and dominion of Christ over all things is prophesied in many portions of the Word of God, including the prophecy of Nebuchadnezzar’s image in Daniel chp 2:

  • Head of fine Gold (v32) – Babylonian Empire
  • Breast and arms of Silver (v32) – MedoPersian Empire
  • Belly and thighs of brass (v32) – Greek Empire
  • Legs of Iron (v32) – Roman Empire
  • Feet of Iron and clay (v33) – revived Roman Empire

all replaced with the Stone cut without hands (v34).

In Daniel chapters 2 God sets out His plan and purpose for the whole of human history.

Something strange happens to the final Kingdom – the Roman Empire, it passes through a further stage of development; Clay and Iron.

The might of the 4th Kingdom would appear yet in some way compromised, pictured in feet and 10 toes, an unstable union of 10kings in a quai-democratic re-emergence.

These 10 Kings appear to exist simultaneously (Dan 2:44)

This final one of man’s Kingdoms will give rise to an eternal kingdom (v44) which will ‘stand forever.’

Stone cut without hands:

  1. Isaiah 28:16; 1 Peter 2:6
  2. Psalm 118:22; Matt 21:42; Mark 12:10; Luke 20:17; Acts 4:11; 1 Peter 2:7
  3. Isaiah 8:14
