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 Corinthians 15 : 3-4
Where to meet God if not in the old shack of our being.
The most humble place will receive the greatest gift.
Therefore, if anyone is in the Messiah, he is a new creation. Old things have disappeared, and-look!-all things have become new!
2 Cor 5:17
Elijah asked for the rain and he got the rain because he had the most powerful force in the universe : FAITH !
For he was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgression of my people he was stricken. He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death, though he had done no violence, nor was any deceit in his mouth.Yet it was the LORD's will to crush him and cause him to suffer, and though the LORD makes his life a guilt offering, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of the LORD will prosper in his hand.
Isaiah 53: 8-10
