The Power of His Resurrection

Ephesians 1:19-20 "And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe [present active participle], according to the working of his mighty power, 20. Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,"

To Know The Power of His Resurrection

His Days Prolonged

Isaiah 53:10-12 "Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him {Christ}; he hath put him to grief {Matthew 26:38 ...My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death...}: when thou shalt make his {Christ} soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed {Heb. 2:16 he took on him the seed of Abraham Romans 4:13 For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith}, he shall prolong his {Christ} days {as High Priest}, and the pleasure of the LORD {Luke 12:32 ... it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.} shall prosper in his {Christ} hand.

11. He shall see of the travail of his {Christ} soul, and shall be satisfied: by his {Christ} knowledge {Rom 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son...} shall my righteous servant justify many; for he {Christ} shall bear {Hebrews 9:28 "So Christ was once offered to bear [carry] the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.} their iniquities.

12. Therefore will I divide him {Christ} a portion with the great , and he shall divide the spoil with the strong {Eph. 6:10 be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 2 Tim 2:1 be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus}; because he {Christ} hath poured out his soul {in the garden} unto death {to self, he cried, Abba, Father, not my will but thine}: ... he {Christ} bare [forgive] the {confessed} sin of many {called unto His Kingdom and glory}, and made intercession {as our advocate} for the transgressors."

Seek Those Things!

Colossians 3:1 "If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God."
